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. Only Jesus can fill our emptiness but he does it beautifully. First, he cleanses our inner being from webs of harmful substitutes and then he fills us with his peace…

Seek God and His Presence

Seek God and His Presence

Why should you (or why do you) seek God and his presence? Should we need any other reason that the Bible tells us so? Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence] (1 Chronicles 16:11, AMP). Two things come to mind right away. Hope they will bless you and your relationship with Jesus. The more you experience God’s presence, the more your capacity to experience his presence grows. God wants to share…

Linger in the Presence of God

Linger in the Presence of God

I’ve always thought abiding in Christ is the most important task of a Christian. Everything else just details. Jesus himself invites us to remain in him, to linger in the presence of God. What could that mean in real life? Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (John 15:4, NIV) The Greek word used here…

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet

Which Bible character do you mostly identify with? Mary is the woman I mostly identify in the gospels. That’s why I truly enjoyed reading her diary in Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The stories are found in Luke 10:38-42, John 11:1-7, 17-44, and John 12:1-11 (or Matt 26:6-13, Mark 14:3-9). The first one is the story of Jesus visiting Martha and Mary, the…

Knowing God On a First Name Basis

Knowing God On a First Name Basis

Do you know the real Self of our heavenly father? Because of Jesus, you are free to get to know God personally. Don’t miss this opportunity. Pray all your excuses to disappear. Pray that you will have an urge to spend more time with God. There’s nothing quite like it than be on a first name basis with God Almighty! With the words of J.I. Packer “What makes life worthwhile is having a big enough objective, something which catches our…

Knowing God

Knowing God

Do you keep God at arm’s length? Is your relationship with God a long-distance one? Or do you have an intimate and close relationship with God? Is knowing God really possible? Yes, because of Jesus it is. Because of Jesus we can be made right with God. But the adventure of faith does not end there, it’s just a beginning. The real adventure is in getting to know God. Yada is a Hebrew word that means “to know” but it…

Silence and Solitude

Silence and Solitude

Do you know how to get to know God? Do you know how to take care of yourself? How does these two questions tie together? In a very organic way. We can’t know ourselves without knowing God first. We can’t be well if we are not made right with God. We are not flourishing if we do not know God’s will in our life. With the words of J.I Packer: “What were we made for? To know God. What aim…

Walking with God

Walking with God

Do you walk with God? Do you know how to walk with God? You know, walking with God should be the most natural state of being for a Christian. Just as walking comes naturally to human beings. But what could walking with God entail? How would you describe walking with God? When we are reconciled to God by grace through faith, our Christian walk begins. Walking with God means that we have an on-going communion with God, we abide in…
