Trust and Rest in God

Trust and Rest in God

It’s interesting how frustrating it can be to not be able to plan far in the future, isn’t it? We barely know what will happen tomorrow and nobody knows how our life or the world will look like in two months. Maybe we needed a reminder of our vulnerability. We truly aren’t in control. Anyhow, we do not need to worry. Because we know intimately the One who is in control and who knows what will happen tomorrow and in…

Nothing Surprises God

Nothing Surprises God

Do you like surprises? I guess it depends on whether they’re good or bad. And, most importantly, whether you trust God or not. Life is full of twists and turns for sure.

And he has a plan for our lives. You might wonder why he…

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown? Many of us keep away from the unknown paths and prefer to stay in the comfort zone where we can handle things. But we are not called to stay where we can handle things. We are called to go wherever God leads us and let him handle things for us. With the wise words of Corrie Ten Boom “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” We do not need…

Bring Everything to God

Bring Everything to God

One thing I’ve learned from the Bible is that we need to bring everything to God. Everything. Whatever it is that troubles us, we need to give to God. Sometimes we think God wants only the good stuff but that’s not true. God wants the whole package: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because he knows we need Him to live according to his will. Hence, if we doubt, we give that doubt to God. Then he can come…

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

When everything goes smoothly, it is easy to be happy. But when storms rage in the sea of life, we wail with the winds, right? What if it’d be possible to live calmly even in the middle of a tornado? What if endurance, encouragement, and hope were always up for crabs? For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have…

As we rush into the New year, let’s not forget the blessings what God has bestowed upon on us. Faith is not just something for holidays. It’s meant to be lived every day. Only then we really receive those blessings. Faith is not an abstract notion or a theological argument, it’s a belief in God’s love and care. And then living as we believe. Live by faith. Consistently. For we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in…

Live Your Faith Out

Do you know how to live your faith out? This is not a trick question but it is a very basic question. If you believe in God, live it out. But how to do it? That is the question. How do we live out faith in the middle of rush hour or at work? Or when we are frightened or completely exhausted? How do you do it? Jesus guides us this way: ‘Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly)….

How to Deal with Uncertainties

How to Deal with Uncertainties

We claim to trust God yet we don’t act like it. We stress about everything when we could pray and trust God to solve all the matters that bother us. Sometimes I’m better with uncertainties, sometimes I catch myself wishing for a security cushion against the world instead of praying for God’s will and protection. What about you? How do you deal with uncertainties? I have tried all kind of tricks to deal with uncertainties but I have found only one…

Stake Your Life on God

Stake Your Life on God

If the promises of the Bible are true, why do you hesitate to stake your life on them? I could somehow understand your hesitancy if there were only one promise in the Bible. But there are more than 7000 promises in the Bible. Also, as we know, God has kept his promises. God’s grace is wild and mighty. So stake your life on God. Faith, in essence, is a daring confidence in God and his promises. So either we trust…
