Included in Christ

Included in Christ

Are you included in Christ? If yes, you’re part of a very rich inheritance. All the riches of Christ are yours when you heard the good news of your salvation, and as a result, believed in Him. If no, know that all are included in the invitation to come to Christ. All are welcome just as they are. Christ has everything you need to be made right with God and even that is not all. He has everything to heal…

How to Cope with Change

How to Cope with Change

Change is inevitable. Change happens all the time, sometimes we are able to notice it, sometimes not. Yet it happens all the time, it’s part of life whether we like it or not. Change can be overwhelming and frightful because we can’t control it. And that seems to be the root of all fear. We don’t want to lose control. What to do then? Paradoxically, the way to cope with change is to surrender all control to Jesus. When we…

Everlasting God

Everlasting God

Wouldn’t it be horrible if God was changeable? We could not know what was required of us each week. Or it’d be horrifying to realize God is so out of date that nothing would be relevant. But we have nothing to fear, that’s not the case. Our everlasting God is the same yesterday, today and forever. For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations. (Psalm 100:5, AMP,*) We can rest…

Stop Doubting and Believe!

Stop Doubting and Believe!

Christmas is gone. What to do now? Should we still sing for joy? Should we still exalt God, give him glory? Well, yes, of course. Heavens, raise the roof! Earth, wake the dead!     Mountains, send up cheers! (Isaiah 49:12, MSG) What if you feel that you’ve been forgotten? What if Christmas was just an earthly happening? Shouldn’t we just pack Christmas neatly away? Not so fast. Hold on. God has comforted his people.     He has tenderly nursed his beaten-up, beaten-down…

The Shield of Faith on Friday the 13th

The Shield of Faith on Friday the 13th

Today – being Friday the 13th and all – I want to remind you to take up the shield of faith. Above all, carry the shield of faith so that you can extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Eph. 6:16, CEB) We are saved by grace through faith. But so often we forget that through faith we also receive God’s protection. God’s your Guardian,       right at your side to protect you—    Shielding you from sunstroke,       sheltering you from…

Change Is Hard

Change Is Hard

Have you tried to change your habits or get back into gear? Isn’t it hard? After our 2-week vacation I have had really hard time of getting back to routine of going for my meditative prayer walks at 6am. I managed to get up yesterday but missed this morning. Sigh. Larry Lea has said “Everyone wants to change, but change demands desire and discipline before it becomes delightful. There is always the agony of choice before the promise of change.”…

Ready 4 Jesus?

Ready 4 Jesus?

The Bible is a treasure. The more I read it, the more I marvel God’s perfect plan. Just take the prophecies of Jesus. Every single one of them came through. Therefore, the Lord will give you a sign. The young woman is pregnant and is about to give birth to a son, and she will name him Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14, CEB) Also there are so many parallels between the Old testament and the New testament. Just think of Abraham and…

God Keeps His Promises for You!

God Keeps His Promises for You!

Waiting on God is hard. But I have learned that it is wise to wait for God’s timing. I have also learned that God’s word is truly trustworthy. God does not break his promises. God can’t break his word. Because he is God. When God made his promise to Abraham, he backed it to the hilt, putting his own reputation on the line. He said, “I promise that I’ll bless you with everything I have—bless and bless and bless!” Abraham…
