CAN YOU STAND TO PRAISE?

I saw something by pure chance recently, and it blew my mind. I found out that it was not easy for me to sustain a decision to praise God and ask for nothing, every day for a number of days. I mean, this looked so simple. In a sense, it …

WHY SO TIMID?

  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear… 1 Tim. 1: 7 Then where does fear come from? Why are many Christians timid, withdrawn or shy? May be the Christians of a few years back were more guilty of this, but the ones of today are not …

GIDEON’S STRENGHT

Gideon had no physical strength. He was weak physically and came from a very weak lineage. He said that the gleanings of Ephraim was better than the full harvest of Abiezer. If the deliverance would come by strength, then the tribe of Ephraim (and others) would have led the charge.  …

Unfruitful Knowledge

Surely he was the son of God! This admission is nothing more than a mere sense knowledge expression. It is purely academic. It was the declaration by the centurion when Jesus breathed His last on the cross, and it is nothing more than the exercise of his vocal cord. The …

ALTERNATIVES TO GOD

There is an interesting scenario in Psalm 81; 8-11. God here tells the children of Israel some home truth. First he calls them to listen. The tone is of one almost in desperation. ‘I wish you could really listen to me. If you will really listen to me’. In other …

I KNOW WHICH VOICE IS LOUDEST

‘For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people’. 1 Peter 2:15 God surely wants us to preach. Jesus Christ himself commanded; ‘Go ye…and preach the gospel’. The power, urgency and efficacy of preaching should and would never be underplayed. However, …

YOU ARE NOT IN CHARGE

What if I told you you are not in charge of your life, not in charge of your actions, your choices, your decisions, your preferences and your entire way of life? That would be preposterous right? A popular poem says, It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with …

DOING THINKING

  ‘So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.’                                                                                                                                                                                              Ephesians 4:17 This suggests that the life of God in us is not automatic. If it is, then there will …

PATHWAY TO GLORY

In John 13:30, immediately Judas left it was night. Night typifies the spiritual atmosphere that took over. Obviously the prince of darkness has gone into overdrive. It was really night and the night promised to last a few more days till the resurrection morning. But it was in the midst …

I DESIRE TO COME

Consecration is an invitation to walk with God. And the beautiful thing about God is that He puts His promises as incentives for us to keep His instructions. There’s always something to look forward to as incentive for obeying His commands. The Bible said in Hebrews 12 vs 1-2 that …
