Back to God

Back to God

When we read the Bible prayerfully, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see things from a fresh perspective. I share you one of my revelations. For long time I kept wondering how on earth the Israelites wandered around the desert for 40 years. Why did they have hard time believing and trusting in God? Why did they not turn back to God? Have you had similart thougths while reading of the adventures of the Israelites in the desert? And…

Touched by the Living God

Touched by the Living God

For a few days now I’ve been marveling how God breathed life into us, how we became living beings. Isn’t it incredible God gave us his very own breath? That was the first time we were touched by the Living God. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:9, NIV) But God was not finished with us even when we chose to disobey. He wanted…

Fellowship with God

Fellowship with God

This post started in the most peculiar way. In a dream, I was writing a post using a quote by Andrew Murray. So this morning I decided I needed to check out his writings again. And I fell in love with this quote about the gloriousness of fellowship with God. “The giver is more than the gift; God is more than the blessing. And our being kept waiting on Him is the only way for our learning to find our…

Uncomplicated Faith

Uncomplicated Faith

Sometimes I think we make our lives way too complicated. We don’t intend to do so but, anyhow, we do. The same goes to faith. It’s meant to be a joy and strength for our journey. And we make it a chore to do. How did we end here when God created us for his pleasure to enjoy him and the life he gives. How could we uncomplicate things? Are you ready for uncomplicated faith? Okay. How do we do…

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

When everything goes smoothly, it is easy to be happy. But when storms rage in the sea of life, we wail with the winds, right? What if it’d be possible to live calmly even in the middle of a tornado? What if endurance, encouragement, and hope were always up for crabs? For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have…

Only God Can Satisfy Your Heart

Only God Can Satisfy Your Heart

Have you had enough of shallow experiences, ready to look for something deeper, more substantial? Do you have a deep yearning for God? Good for you. It is a universal experience of emptiness that often drives people finally to God. Nothing but God satisfies our hearts but he truly does.

Soak Up Every Moment with God

Soak Up Every Moment with God

Do you believe that God loves you? Sometimes we believe it in our head but not in our heart. Yet truly believing this deep down is essential for our spiritual well-being. Only then we want to hang out with God. And that’s how we grow in faith. That’s how we can experience God’s smile upon us. So let’s learn to soak up every moment with God. God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will.     Expect love, love, and more love!…

Praise Your Way Through Storms

Praise Your Way Through Storms

Storms are inevitable in life. So one of the most important life skills is to learn to handle those storms. Storms are also, maybe even especially, inevitable in Christian’s lives. In fact, I think it is a faith skill to learn to handle storms. I believe we can handle anything with faith. Without faith, we are lost in the storms of life. With faith, we are secure in Christ no matter what happens and no matter how devastating the storm…
