Impossible Prayers

Impossible Prayers

How is your prayer life? Are you praying impossible prayers? Or do you settle for nice little prayers? I hope you choose to pray big, bold prayers. Because that tells me your God is big and mighty. You see, “God delights in answering our impossible prayers” as Bob Goff has put it. God delights in you asking for impossible things. Because that tells him that you a) need him, b) you believe he can do mighty things, and c) you…

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer is a gift in so many different ways. First of all, prayer is our way of communication with God. Isn’t it amazing that – because of Jesus – we can approach God anytime and anywhere? And God is waiting for us. God’s there, listening for all who pray,    for all who pray and mean it. (Ps. 145:18, MSG) A wondrous thing about prayer is the fact that we are heard. We feel better right after our amen even though it is only…

Grace for Weary

Grace for Weary

I hope you, my friend, know that you don’t need to earn your salvation. You receive it as a gift when you believe in Jesus. Grace is enough. You are enough. Why do we then talk so much about tending our faith or growing in our faith? We are called to live with God and a lot of it happens via spiritual exercises. But what if we are for one reason or another so weary that we can’t even think…

We Cannot Pray Enough

We Cannot Pray Enough

We can’t value prayer enough and we cannot pray enough. Prayer is a marvelous gift of God and meant to put in good use. And often. All the time, actually. We all know prayer is our way of communication with God Almighty. Why do we then neglect it? It does not make sense, does it? Especially because we can change the world one prayer at a time. Paul Minner has said “Prayer is a moment of incarnation – God with…

Spiritual Transaction

Spiritual Transaction

Are you spiritually tuned to God? Or are you one of those Christians who live under their privileges as God’s children? I hope you claim all the blessings meant for children of God. Because only that way you can live as you are meant to live. When spiritual transaction is part of your everyday living, you are well empowered for victorious living. Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have…

Live in Jesus’ Name

Live in Jesus’ Name

I often say “let’s start with prayer because it’s the best way to start anything”. I do mean it and I do practice it. Why you ask. Because prayers in Jesus’ name are powerful. So start always with prayer, especially if you are a recent graduate or otherwise starting a new phase in your life. And continue to live in Jesus’ name. Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of…

Listening to the Heartbeat of God

Listening to the Heartbeat of God

The most life-giving habit of mine is to sit in God’s presence in the morning. You could call it prayer but then you’d have to use the word in the broadest sense of the word. It also includes Bible-reading, some meditation on the Word, listening to the heartbeat of God, and breathing in the Holy Spirit In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;In the morning I will prepare [a prayer and a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait…

Fellowship with God

Fellowship with God

This post started in the most peculiar way. In a dream, I was writing a post using a quote by Andrew Murray. So this morning I decided I needed to check out his writings again. And I fell in love with this quote about the gloriousness of fellowship with God. “The giver is more than the gift; God is more than the blessing. And our being kept waiting on Him is the only way for our learning to find our…

Just Ask God

Just Ask God

Is it hard for you to ask for advice? Do you rather wander aimlessly around than humble yourself and ask for help? Why is it so hard to admit that we are lost? It must be pride. We want to pretend at all cost that we know what we are doing. But the sooner we admit we are clueless, the sooner we are en route in the right direction. This is also true in our spiritual life. We don’t need…

Build Each Other Up in Faith

Build Each Other Up in Faith

There is so much negativity going around that it’s tempting to just give up. But that is not a solution. Instead, we are called to go against the grain and build each other up in faith. This seems to be a novel concept these days. But what if we build our lives on faith and extended love even to our enemies? Our world would become a better place for sure. And then we would not even be tempted to give…
