Wear your helmet

Psalm‬ ‭140:7‬ – “O Lord, my Lord, the strength of my salvation, you have covered my head in the day of battle.” Unless we’ve actually been in the heat of battle, we may never actually understand what soldiers go through. They stand in the line of fire and wage a war against the enemy, based […]

Approach the throne

Hebrews‬ ‭4:16 – “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” The dictionary defines confidence as, ‘the feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something; the state of feeling certain […]

Why worry?

Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭- “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Delight in God’s Word and Prosper

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭1:2 -3 – “…but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” The Psalms are […]

Seek wisdom and instruction always

Psalm 90:12—”Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.” Most of us don’t sit and think “oh! I am going to die because life is short”. Either we think about other pleasant things, worrisome things, or some don’t even have time to think with the busyness of everyday […]

Word brings light to a twisted generation

Philippians 2:14-16—”Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be […]

Lead us Holy Spirit

Galatians 5:16 – “So I Say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.” When we write our exams the thing that pops in our mind is ‘I wish I could listen to music’; ‘what if I watch just one movie and then study for the […]
