Pray And Be Happy

Read Matthew 7:7-12 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:24) Sometimes, a feeling arises inside of us that God is really not concerned about the little needs in our life. Contrary to this thought process, the Bible (in many places) simply tells us to ask. Not like a shopping list mentality but out of a relationship One day, Aaron my son asked for a toy car which I had promised to get him. Due to the work load in the ministry that night I forgot […]

I AM SPECIAL

Read Ephesians 4:20-32 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, His good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2) Those people who are in Christ are the special people of God. This is because when they believed in Christ, His blood redeemed them from the slavery of sin and God the Father put a mark of ownership upon them by separating them from the people of this world. So we are not ordinary people like the […]

Read Joshua 2:1-6 Now therefore, I beg you,swear to me by the Lord, since I have shown you kindness that you also will show kindness to my father ’s house, and give me a true token. (Joshua 2:12) If you saw disaster looming on the horizon, what would do to ensure your family’s future? Rahab was such one who put everything on the line for her family.

REMAIN UNITED!!!

Read Acts 12:1-12 “For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst.” (Matthew 18:20) A short movie on animals exhibited that a tiger was chasing a buffalo with all its might. A thought crossed my mind that certainly the tiger who looked so vigorous would kill the buffalo and will have a delicious meal. Indeed, the tiger pounced on the buffalo and as it was about to kill its prey, the whole scene changed. A herd of buffaloes came marching towards the tiger. The tiger got scared looking at the vast herd and out of fear he spared the buffalo and ran for his life. Likewise […]

ASK, SEEK, KNOCK

Read Luke 11:5-10 And I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find, knock and it will be opened for you. (Luke 11:9) Every person has his or her limits in everything. Even with our own children, whom we love with all our hearts, we have certain amount of patience. Sometimes we just get worn out and can lose our cool with them. Isn’t it amazing to hear Jesus say our heavenly Father has unlimited patience? Despite these assurances of God’s patience, we can still find it hard to keep on asking , seeking […]

PLACE OF TOTAL SURRENDER

Read Isaiah 57:15-19 “Take eat, this is my body which is broken for you.” (1 Corinthians 11:24) Many times we are on the wrong side of the cross. This is the reason why we don’t have much impact on the world around us. We are like those Pharisees who stood before the cross. Scripture says we need to be crucified with Christ and only then will the life of God begin to flow through us. Unless you reach this point where your worldly passions are not crucified you are not much of a threat to the devil and his kingdom. […]

WHAT NEXT?

Read Mark 1:16-18 “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care serving as overseers.” (1 Peter 5:2) After the Lord Jesus Christ healed Peter’s mother-in-law of fever, she immediately arose and started serving the Lord. The Lord is calling us to serve Him. If we answer His call the rewards are for all eternity. Many of us feel we are not worth or good enough. God already knows our faults and knows we are not perfect yet, He will work only through us. Only thing is we must make ourselves available to Him. Our past sins, our background […]

ACCEPTABLE TO THE LORD

Read Isaiah 58:3-7 “Is not this the fast that I choose, to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke. (Isaiah 58:6) Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is regarded as the anniversary of the day that God created the world. The celebration begins with a blast of the shofar (ram’s horn) to announce that the God who created the world is still the One ruling it. The blowing of the horn also begins a 10 day period of self examination and repentance leading to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:23-32); (Numbers 29:1-6). The […]

WORK EXPERIENCE

Read Exodus 14:12-14 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Revelation 3:20) Harry Houdini made a name for himself by escaping from every imaginable confinement. He boasted that no jail cell could hold him. It worked almost every time. “ He accepted another invitation to demonstrate his skill. He entered the cell and the jail cell door shut. No matter how hard Houdini worked, he couldn’t unlock the lock. Two hours later he gave up in […]

LIFE IS PRECIOUS

Read Judges 9:52-54 “Do not be overly wicked, nor be foolish; why should you die before your time?”(Ecclesiastes 7:17) Almost everyone would agree that life is the most precious gift that human beings have been given. There are times when life becomes so difficult or unbearable. For many, suicide is the only way to escape. Suicide is a direct breaking of the commandment of God, which is you shall not murder. We are not to murder each other or ourselves. Each one of us carries within us the potential to overcome the evil in the world. One powerful way to […]
