Investing and forever

Matthew 6:20—”Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Come prayer time, we get on our knees and plead “Oh God! More of You and less of me. Let me do Your will. Use me as a vessel to do Your […]

Submit to God’s ways

John 2:5:  His mother saith unto the servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. The wedding in Cana was going on as usual in all its festive mood and celebration, but they were in for a rude shock when they got to know that they were running out of wine.  Just imagine that the […]

New creation

II Corinthians 5:17:  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. This is the most common verse we say to those who are new believers in the Lord.  Old things need to be told good bye to and replaced with […]

Do not delay help

Proverbs 3:28:  Say not unto thy neighbour, go and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee. When we have the ability and the resources to help someone, we should not delay helping.  Jesus never delayed helping anybody in need and those who called out to Him.  He never sent […]

God’s favour

Esther 8:4:  Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther.  So Esther arose and stood before the king? When the wicked rise up against you to cause you harm what do you do?  When there is a law forbidding your entrance to the place that you were once loved and now have to […]

Are you ready to believe?

Matthew 13:58:  And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. There is just one way to tap into God’s resources for your life.  That one and only way is faith in Jesus, our Living God.  The Bible teaches us that whoever comes to God must believe that He exists and that […]

The wedding garment

Matthew 22:12:  And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? and he was speechless. Wedding garment…was it so important?  Yes it was.  The people who were invited for the wedding had to wear a wedding garment.  The man here in this passage entered the wedding feast with […]

Arise Shine

Isaiah 60:1 – Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. In the coming days, God wants to exceed your expectations! He has amazing things stored up for you. He’ll take you places that you’ve never dreamed and give you breaks that seemed impossible. His glory […]

What Defines Your Future?

Job 22:28 – Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. In the Old Testament there was an Israelite woman who was about to give birth. She had just heard that the Ark of the Covenant that housed God’s presence had been […]
