Lately, inner peace seems to be it. Famous people tell here and there how they’re seeking and planning on achieving inner peace. But, my friend, do you know you what? You can’t earn or achieve inner peace. You receive it as a gift from Jesus. Yes. Jesus gives you inner peace. By grace. Christianity doesn’t appear very trendy and some people don’t like that God gives so many good things free. Achieving something appears so much more noble and sophisticated….
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…
The world seems to be going crazy. Hence there is a lot of fear floating around. The best antidote I know is prayer. For real. I truly believe in the power of prayer because it works. In this post you can find some quotes to boost your moral in this crazy world. Whatever you do, do not quit praying. Because it invites God in our midst and miracles will follow. As Woodrow Kroll puts it “fervent prayers produce phenomenal results”….
Did you know that you are fashioned for faith and not for fear? Sometimes we tend to think faith takes more out of you that worry or misery. Other times you hear people saying it’s not natural to have faith. How come? God created us to interact with him. His people are fashioned for faith, not for fear. That’s why I was thrilled to find this quote by E. Stanley Jones. It reflects beautifully the purposes of God. You are…
How are you doing? Do you need prayer? You’ve come to the right place. Today I don’t want just to talk about prayer. I want to actually pray for you. We all need prayer whether we realise it or not. I am a firm believer in prayer. The power of prayer is much more than we can ever imagine. I have compiled a list of posts on prayer for you to check out and be inspired: The Power Tool of…Pin It
Did you wait for summer so life could get a bit less hectic? But now you’ve found yourself running a busy summer schedule? Now you’ve wondering where did the promised restful time disappear? Where is your peace, right? It’s great to have many opportunities. It’s great to have a chance to try different things. But busyness does not bring peace or rest or rejuvenation, all those things that we were wanting from this summer. It’s time to cut back, don’t…Pin It
Did you know that prayer is a privilege? I think so. Did you also know that prayer is also our duty? Prayer is our joy, our weapon, and our ministry as Christians. With the words of Martin Luther “As is the business of tailors to make clothes and cobblers to make shoes, so it is the business of Christians to pray.” The power of prayer is beyond our understanding. As Watchman Nee has said “Our prayers lay the track down…Pin It
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…Pin It
Worrying seems natural to many of us. Worrying might even seem like the only way to go. But, let me tell you, it doesn’t have to be so. There is a way to say goodbye to worries. But it’s nothing we can make happen. But Jesus can. Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming…Pin It
Do you want to live fearlessly? Good for you. Because fear cripples and cramps joy out of living. And joyless living is only surviving from day to day. We are meant to thrive, to enjoy the days we’ve been given. How then can we achieve the state of fearlessness? The first step: PRAYER! Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a…Pin It
