Take Heart

John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Every day, things come against us in life to try to steal our joy and rob us of our victory. In […]

Surf the Waves

Isaiah 43:2 – “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Surfing cannot be an easy sport. Think of the intricate balance that surfers must maintain on […]

Let Go; Let God

Exodus‬ ‭2:9‬ – “And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, ‘Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages.’ So the woman took the child and nursed him.” ‭‭ One can only wonder what Moses’ mother, Jochebed, must have been thinking when she let go of him in a […]

Build Your Faith

Romans 10:17 – “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Faith is a huge component of our lives. We know (at least, theoretically) that our faith has the power to move mountains (Matthew 17:20). We understand that without faith it’s impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). And yet, do […]

Serve Cheerfully

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:6-7‬ – “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Many of us are quite familiar with today’s verses with […]

Sufficient Grace

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:8 – “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” We each have our strengths and weaknesses. When a task falls within our area of expertise, we undertake it with joy and […]

Rest, Wait, Fret Not

Psalm 37:7 – “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself…” The practice of rest is not commonplace in society today. We’re a generation that’s always on the go. We have glorified the busyness of our daily lives. We’re constantly striving, working hard to achieve something greater. While hard work is […]

Rejoice in hope

Romans‬ ‭5:1-2‬ – “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”‭‭ Hopelessness is one of the worst possible feelings […]

What Reveals All?

1 Corinthians 4:5 – “He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart.” As Believers we want to ‘appear good’ to others, more so in and around the premises of the church, because we are surrounded by other Believers. It is not only that we put […]

A God-shaped life

Proverbs 11:9-13—”An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. 10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. 11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of […]
