Prayer to Know God’s Will

Prayer to Know God’s Will

Do you ever wonder what God wants you to do? We might think God’s will must be something complicated so that’s why we don’t even try. That’s sad, isn’t it? Because then we miss our purpose as well. For a long time, I’ve been trying to figure out the simplest way to know God’s will for me. And, yes, it’s prayer, of course. But what kind of prayer, right? Let’s find out. And then, just the other day, I came…

The Spirit Living within You

The Spirit Living within You

Do you underestimate God’s Holy Spirit? I think we all do to some extent. Otherwise, we’d be much more excited about this Comforter, Defender, Energizer, and Loyal Friend of ours who lives within us. Pentecost is a wonderful time to examine our relationship with the Spirit of Holiness. Do we let her close enough to spiritually stretch us and get us out of our comfort zone? If we want to grow in faith, we need to give the Spirit of…

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

One of the things we forget or take for granted is that we are called into fellowship with Jesus. God is not done with us when we are saved. He invites us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. That’s an ongoing thing like any other relationship. And not just on Sundays. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9, NIV) We are to live our whole lives in Jesus. We need…

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Very often I am asked how to live faith out in everyday life. It’s a great question, don’t you think? If you do know how to live faith out, faith is not just great theology, it’s a fulfilling way of life. And that’s what we all want, right? I’ve always thought the answer to this question is somewhat hard to explain but then I read from Ephesians how Paul explains it in two verses: In conclusion, be strong in the…

Passionate Pursuit of God

Passionate Pursuit of God

This morning I was reminded of a connection between the Old Testament and New Testament. You see, we are told to seek God as we would for a hidden treasure. This is not just some casual browsing, don’t you agree? This is an intentional and passionate pursuit of God like our life would depend on it. And it does, especially when looking from the eternal perspective, doesn’t it? My son, if you will receive my wordsAnd treasure my commandments within…

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

This year the season of Lent seems to start a little earlier than usual or am I the only one who is a bit surprised? Nonetheless, I find this season of preparation a huge blessing. We need it to truly appreciate the tremendousness of Easter once it rolls around. And maybe we could stop worrying so much. God’s got this. Paul David Tripp tweeted today “The story of redemption is historical proof of the unstoppable sovereignty of God. In a…

A Deeper Connection with God

A Deeper Connection with God

Lately, I’ve been reading about Moses. He was an imperfect man (like we all are) yet what a life and what a journey he had. And what a faith! I would like to have that kind of connection with God, you know. That’s why I am continually hoping and praying for a deeper connection with God. Do you know it is possible for each of us because Jesus cleared the way back to God? Today I read (Exodus 4) about…

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

I find it a huge blessing to know perfection is not required for Christians. Martin Luther has said, “A Christian is never in a state of completion but always in a process of becoming”. We are in the process of becoming a person of faith. God is at work in us. We are becoming what God created us to be. Unfortunately, we are able to hinder the process through our decision making. If we always choose things based on convenience,…

Life on-demand

Life on-demand

Modern people would like to think there’s no sacrifice or compromise needed in anything. We would all like to be able to choose what we like and be perpetually happy. No sadness or sacrifices, instead, we want a happy ending in everything. But that’s not how life works. We can’t oust sadness no matter how much we’d like that. There is no such a thing as life on-demand. We all know everyone’s life is touched by sadness. It might be…

Called to Grow in Faith

Called to Grow in Faith

Last week I wrote about how believing needs to begin again every morning. That’s why none of us can boast of our faith, we are all beggars of grace. But this does not mean that we weren’t called to grow in faith. Faith is not a pill we swallow once in our lifetime. Rather it is an organic connection with God we are all invited to enter. And this is where we can grow in faith. We are called to…
