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…

God, Do It Again

God, Do It Again

Do you ever wonder whether God can still do mighty things? And if he can, could he do them in your life? We do need reminders of God’s power and goodwill towards us. Otherwise, we have a hard time believing in God and his grace. The Bible is full of these reminders and that’s why we need to keep on devouring it. But in the end, faith is a mystery, we can’t explain everything. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be faith. As Martin…

Loving Jesus More than Anything

Loving Jesus More than Anything

I love Jesus. How could I not, right? He died for me and gave me a chance to be made right with God. Loving Jesus is a no-brainer to me. How about you? It gets tough when we are told in the Bible to love God and Jesus above all. More than ourselves. Even more than our kids. And even more than life itself. Ouch. Loving Jesus more than anything does not come naturally to us. Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord…

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

Often we have big why questions when horrible things happen. But that question does not help us to deal with disasters. Because we can’t understand why certain things happen. Some of the evil things are caused by humans, directly or indirectly. But there are a lot of mysterious, inexplicable suffering in the world too. Whatever the cause of the current suffering is, taking it all in is taxing. Then it’s just time to lean on God, trust Him for seeing…

Only Three Things Left to Do

Only Three Things Left to Do

Do you wish there was more time in a day? I do. The demands of everyday life are great. Sometimes I do wonder how we all manage to get by with all the things we are asked to do. Juggling seems to be the style of living for many of us, especially during these last weeks of the year. Life is meant to be enjoyed, people cherished, and God worshiped. How can we accomplish that when we rush through things…

Depend on God, Delight in Him

Depend on God, Delight in Him

Do you doubt God’s willingness or ability to take care of you today? Is it difficult for you to trust God to meet your needs today? It might feel a bit absurd for sure. We can’t see God. Hence, we doubt. But, let me tell you, God is real. He is alive and active and loves interacting with his children. God wants to take care of you and he wants you to delight in him. We are called to depend…

Spend Time in God’s Presence

Spend Time in God’s Presence

Do you have a lot of questions about life and faith? Are they keeping you away from God or are they bringing you closer to him? Don’t fight your questions, give them to God. He will answer them when you’re ready. Meanwhile, embrace your questions, live them and praise God in advance for answering you when the time is right. Instead of worrying about the answers, use your time more usefully: spend time in God’s presence. That’s from where all…

Pray It Possible

Pray It Possible

Very often we feel that there’s nothing we can do to make things better. We feel helpless and discouraged and don’t know how to go on. The most important thing – and hopefully the first thing – to do is to pray. Really. Because prayer works. Indeed God works in and through our lives. Don’t ever forget that. Whatever dilemma or problem you’re facing, pray it possible. With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on…

Are you afraid of the future? You don’t have to be. Of course, it’s easier said than lived out but I truly believe it and try to live according to that belief too. Certainly, the future is scary if we face it all alone. But if we live our lives with God, there is nothing to be afraid of. Here are some verses and thoughts for a fear-free future. There is surely a future hope for you,     and your hope…
