“He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favor than he that flattereth with the tongue.” Proverbs 28 vs 23.

Abba Father

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.” Psalms 68 vs 5. My sisters and I are now orphans, it became official when our mother died in 2012.

Contentment

“Not that I speak in respect of want, for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Philippians 4 vs 11. There was no one more qualified among the Apostles than Paul, whose discontentment would have been justified. He suffered hardship, need, and hunger. He was belittled, imprisoned and the listContinue reading “Contentment”

Zacchaeus

“And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.” Luke 19 vs 2. Who was Zacchaeus? And why did Jesus go to his house?  The story of Zacchaeus is short. He was only mentioned briefly in Luke chapter 19 but the lesson learnt from hisContinue reading “Zacchaeus”

Endurance

Exceedingly

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3 vs 20.

It Is Well

“And he said, wherefore wilt thou go to him today? It is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, it shall be well.” (2 Kings 4 vs 23). Please read 2 Kings 4 vs 8-37 I try not to imagine how this mother must have felt when her only child died. It is somethingContinue reading “It Is Well”

Use Your Gift

“A Man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Proverbs 18 vs 16 We were all given a gift or a talent. It was given to us by God and it was given for a reason. I believe the two reasons are, firstly, to establish the man/woman and secondly, to blessContinue reading “Use Your Gift”

He Is Risen!

“And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen remember how he spoke unto you when he was yet in Galilee.” Luke 24 vs 5-6 We are in the Easter season andContinue reading “He Is Risen!”

No man that warreth entangled himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” 2nd Timothy 2 vs 3-4. Hymn of meditation today is Onward Christian Soldiers by Arthur Seymour Sullivan (1842-1900). That’sContinue reading “Christian Soldiers”

Love

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1st John 4 vs 7 Today I posted a little nugget on my Facebook page about love. Sometimes we are so caught up with doing life that we forget to tell our loveContinue reading “Love”

A Perfect Heart

And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, but not with a perfect heart.” 2nd Chronicles 25 verses 1-2. According toContinue reading “A Perfect Heart”

“And the angel said unto them, fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” Luke 2 vs 10 Mary was first to hear of this good news (Luke chapter 1), after all she was chosen by God to conceive Jesus! She heard quite a lotContinue reading “Good News”

His Voice

“And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire, and after the fire a still small voice.” (1st Kings 19 vs 12) When Jezebel threatened Elijah, he became fearful and ran away. He was tired and felt hopeless. Who would have thought that a great prophet like Elijah would becomeContinue reading “His Voice”

Praise Him!

“I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psalms 34 vs 1) When was the last time you praise God? I don’t mean going before him with a long list of things to do for me, but just praises and adoration to him. The Bible says thatContinue reading “Praise Him!”

“And said unto them, ye are the chief of the fathers of the Levites, sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that ye may bring up the ark of the Lord God of Israel unto the place that I have prepared for it.” (1st Chronicles 15 vs 12). Sanctification or consecration is God’s call forContinue reading “Sanctification”

Get Back Up

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again, but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” (Proverbs 24 vs 16) Whether we have been a Christian for ten years or ten days or even ten minutes, we are all subject to falling. Maybe by now some of us have already fallen many timesContinue reading “Get Back Up”

Be A Light

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they mayContinue reading “Be A Light”

Give Him Thanks

 “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good, because his mercy endureth forever” (Psalms 118 vs 1) During my personal time of prayer, I always begin my prayers this way “Lord I thank you for life, health and strength, thank you that I am not sick but by your stipes I am healed”.Continue reading “Give Him Thanks”

Increase

The name Jabez means sorrow according to 1st Chronicles chapter 4 vs 9. Jabez knew what his name meant and he also knew that only God could have changed his outcome. So the Bible says “Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, andContinue reading “Increase”

Do Not Fear

After Moses died Joshua became leader of God’s people. This appointment was already predetermined by God himself in Deuteronomy 31 vs 14, (please read the entire chapter). . This was a great task which became real for Joshua in Joshua chapter 1 vs 2-5. The fear of leading the people made him nervous, so GodContinue reading “Do Not Fear”

Resting In Him

“For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (Hebrews 4 vs 10) We are living in a world that is moving fast. Fast food, fast lane and technology combined to give us speed. But that is not God’s plan for us. God’sContinue reading “Resting In Him”

Royalty

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (1st Peter 2 vs 9) We serve a sovereign God who does everything with excellence. He fearfully and wonderfully madeContinue reading “Royalty”

Working For Him

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while its day, the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9 vs 4) Jesus said those words shortly before he healed the blind man. So, what does it really mean to work for Christ? Working for Christ means doing his will so thatContinue reading “Working For Him”

Wait

(Isaiah 40 vs 31) But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strenght, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint .

KINDNESS

Living Water

I love David’s version of God in Psalms 42 vs 1-2. He compared his thrist for God to that of a deer when it’s thirsty. Just like in the physical likewise in the spirit. We get thirsty and not even the most expensive drink can quench our thirst. Only water can do that. Same forContinue reading “Living Water”

Get Wisdom

Today’s word is wisdom. Solomon caught the vision of how important having wisdom is. So when Solomon asked God to give him an understanding heart in 1st Kings 3 vs 9, the following verse said his speech pleased God. God was pleased that he gave him more. He (God) added wisdom to the package. InContinue reading “Get Wisdom”
