Fretting Less by Trusting God More

Fretting Less by Trusting God More

As the Coronavirus is spreading like crazy, many are getting anxious. I think it is wise to wash your hands and do everything you can to prevent the disease as much as possible. But our life or death are not in our own hands. Hence it’s time to start fretting less by trusting God more. Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling…

God’s Protection

God’s Protection

As the Coronavirus spreads fear around the world, it’s time to remind ourselves of a few facts. No, I’m not telling you to wash your hands and such. I’m urging you to reminds yourself of some spiritual facts about God’s protection and reasons to be fearless in this seemingly fearful season. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,    my God, in whom I trust.”3Surely…

Peace of God

Peace of God

What do you wish for Christmas? The most amazing gift is peace of God. It’s something the world can’t give you. Peace the world gives is something you get when you are able to retreat from your troubles. God’s peace is so strong you can feel a deep peace even in the midst of chaos. How can we attain it? By receiving it in Jesus. For a child has been born for us,    a son given to us;authority rests upon his…

God’s Willingness to Help

God’s Willingness to Help

Once again I am taken by a short verse in the Bible. It amazes me how the Word of God can feed us precisely what we need most. And it’s most certainly a verse that I’ve read many times yet it still clears my head and helps me to breathe more deeply. It reminds me of God’s willingness to help me. And when I remember that I am ready to tackle anything life throws at me. When I am afraid,    I…

Resting in Grace

Resting in Grace

Summer is time for rest. It’s time to pause, get your mind off your work and worries. The need for rest is in our DNA. We need to rest every night and we need a vacation every year. But there is even deeper rest within our reach. Resting in grace brings us real rest. What is that and why is it so special? First of all, grace brings peace to us. When we’ve confessed our sins, we receive grace upon…

How to Be Content in Every Situation

How to Be Content in Every Situation

My recipe for being content in every situation is very simple: seek God in the morning. Only God can enable us to be content in every situation, no matter how hard a place we find ourselves in. Really. Sure, it does not come naturally to us. Even Paul says he had “learned to be content whatever the circumstances” (Phil.4:11, NIV). It is a skill we can learn. How to go about it? How to be content in every situation I have…

No Hurry in Grace

No Hurry in Grace

Do you ever wonder if you’re getting into heaven by accident or, at least, not by your own merit but somebody else’s? Congratulations are in order if you realize it is Jesus’ merits that get you into heaven. Not yours on anybody else’s. So relax, all is done. There’s no hurry in grace. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Eph. 2:8-9, ESV)…

The Safest Place in the World

The Safest Place in the World

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,…

Wait in Peace

Wait in Peace

Waiting for a dream come true is very hard. Especially without trying to manipulate the outcome. We would like to force God’s hand to bless us and bless us now. But that’s not how blessings work. That might even be a recipe for a disaster. How then could we wait in peace? John Ortberg has said, “What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for”. If we truly understand this, we might…

Starting Fresh in the New Year

Starting Fresh in the New Year

Starting a new year is exciting. Getting a fresh start is even more so. But doing them both at the same time is exhilarating. And that’s available for all of us when we start the New Year with God.
