Do Not Trust in Your Own Reasoning

Do Not Trust in Your Own Reasoning

Life is tough. It is especially tough if you try to manage it totally on your own. But you do not have to do it on your own. Help is available. And not just any help but divine help designed just for you. Why then do we insist on going on our own? Nothing but heartache comes out of prideful independence. But the Biblical advice “Do not trust in your own reasoning” leads us into different direction. Those who trust…

How to Hold onto God’s Goodness

How to Hold onto God’s Goodness

It was wonderful to soak in God’s goodness during the celebration of Christ’s birth, wasn’t it? But what now? How are we to go about our lives with this knowledge? How can we bring the joy of the Lord into our everyday lives? That’s the question, isn’t it? How can we hold onto God’s goodness as the festivities end? Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,     who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice in your…

Did You Know? You Are a VIP in God’s Eyes

Did You Know? You Are a VIP in God’s Eyes

Do you know that you are a VIP in God’s eyes? Sometimes we think that our life is so small or simple that it is not significant. Maybe not if seen through the eyes of the world. But God thinks you are a Very Important Person. God created you, gave his only Son to die for you and through the resurrection of Jesus Christ made it possible for you to be made right with him. God waits to hear from you…

God Is Peace

God Is Peace

God is love, right? The Bible says so. And most of people agree. God is also joy. Something we don’t always think about. Even that is not all. God is also peace. Really. God does not only give peace but he is peace. The Bible tells this too. So Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and called it The Lord Is Peace. (Judges 6:24, NIV, emphasis added) Just like we can’t separate real love or joy from God, we can’t…

Go to God

Go to God

Last night my new class called Faith in Everyday Life started. I had been anticipating, praying and preparing for it for quite some time now. The class was well attended and it was a huge blessing to see how much enthusiasm for learning and growing in grace there was. One thing always amazes me after a speaking engagement is that I feel myself so empty. Peaceful but empty. Blessed but empty. Fulfilled but empty. Today it’s time for my own…

How to Find Your True Direction

Do you feel that you’ve lost your true direction? Do you spend your life in less than formidable ways? It’s time to turn around, my friend. God has a good plan for you. How do you find God’s plan for you? How can you find your true direction? The same way than Jesus trained his apostles. By being with him. How do you do that? “Step out of the traffic!
