Preparing for the Future

Preparing for the Future

One of the best ways to prepare for the future is – surprise, surprise – to reminisce the past. It’s something you can do while sunbathing on the beach or resting in the hammock. Who knew preparing for the future could be this fun? Here are three questions to help you in the process: When has God proved to be faithful in your life? Have you experienced God’s guidance in your life? If yes, when? When have you marveled God’s…

Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Many people say God feels distant. But we can’t trust our feelings in spiritual matters. But I understand if God feels distant, it’s easy to also doubt his existence. And that can cause all kinds of problems. But is there anything we could do? Is God distant or is he just silent? Sometimes God is silent and then we just need to wait. We all get dry spells along our spiritual journey, the trick is to know what to do…

God’s Promises Will Carry You Home

God’s Promises Will Carry You Home

God’s promises are so many and various that you can be absolutely sure they will never run out and they cover all your needs. Always and forevermore . You can base your life on God’s promises. They will carry you home. Your promise revives me;    it comforts me in all my troubles.(Psalm 119:50; NLT,*) As R.C. Sproul has said, “faith involves trusting in the future promises of God and waiting for their fulfillment”. So let’s put our trust in God and…

The Safest Place in the World

The Safest Place in the World

What is your favorite place in the whole wide world? Maybe a place where you are safe and secure and feel loved as you are? I hope you have such a place. But if not, know that you are more than welcome into Jesus’ arms. It’s not only the best place but also the safest place in the world. How come? Because it’s a place where we find rest, peace, and grace upon grace. And as Warren Wiersbe has said,…

Always With Us

Always With Us

I’m almost weepy as I ponder on God’s promises to us and, especially, how beautifully he demonstrates that he is fully behind his promises. God became a human being so he could redeem our sins but also walk alongside us. He did not just tell us what to do, he became one of us. Even Jesus’ name declares God’s intentions to be always with us. All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive…

Eternally Changeless God

Eternally Changeless God

Such human qualities as absent mindness or forgetfulness do not apply to God. Neither is he getting tired or weakening or ageing. God is on his top form as much today as he was when he created the world. Our God is an eternally changeless God. Hallelujah! Who has done this and carried it through,     calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them     and with the last—I am he. (Isaiah 41:4, NIV) Also Jesus…

By Loving Forces

By Loving Forces

One of my favorite hymns is the one made from the poem “By Loving Forces” written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer in prison. He sent it to his family for Christmas to bring hope and assurance. And this hymn still does it every time. So if you’re in dire need of encouragement in the midst of hardships, this song is for you. I’ve always loved the Finnish hymn made from the poem. Today, I fell in love with the newer German version…

Trouble Is Normal

Trouble Is Normal

God’s promises are not too good to be true. Jesus even promised something that some of us wish he hadn’t. Jesus told us that in the world we will have trouble, tribulation, and trials. But that’s not the end of it. Jesus also told us that he will be with us until the end. He told us that he deprived the world of power to harm our souls. Read for yourself! I have told you these things, so that in…

Christians & Friday the 13th

Christians & Friday the 13th

Does your Christian faith influence your take on Friday the 13th? Or do you still feel skirmish? It might be Friday the 13th but “This is the day the LORD acted; we will rejoice and celebrate in it!”. (Ps.118:24, CEB) Yes, let’s rejoice! It might be Friday the 13th but all the promises of the Bible are in effect also today. Earlier, before you knew God personally, you were enslaved to so-called gods that had nothing of the divine about…
