Faithfulness

Proverbs 20:6—”Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?” It is easy for anyone to declare themselves as faithful, reliable, or loyal. But will it tally if we ask around from people in proximity or those who interact on a daily basis? Typically, it is hard to find […]

Use your heart not your mask

Joel 2:13—”Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” We try to be pleasing and courteous as humans. The short temper, greed, comparing with others, gossipping, lying, and what ever else may happen in the world is masked by our best appearance and behaviour. Just like we put on our best […]

What controls you?

Are you in control or are you being controlled? Genesis 1:27-28—”And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion […]

Groom your heart

1 Peter 3:3-4—”Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” There are schools known as ‘finishing schools’ […]

Building character

Romans 5:3-4: And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope. Tribulation means great trouble or suffering.  It also means pressure or being crushed.  When a child of God goes through trouble or suffering, it works out patience.  Patience leads to experience and […]

Rest in the Lord

Psalm 37:7: Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. There are times when things don’t work the way we want them to work. We will feel discouraged and lose our hope in […]

God’s unfinished work for you

Ecclesiastes 3:14:  I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever; nothing taken from it; and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. God does not leave anything unfinished.  He always completes what He has started.  What He does stands forever. His word is established forever too. If God has started […]

Holy Spirit, in or out?

I Samuel 16:13-14: Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren; and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up and went to Ramah. But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the […]

Bless the Lord at all times

Psalm 92:1:  It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High. Giving thanks to the Lord is a good thing.  He deserves our praise and He is worthy of it.  Giving thanks to God amidst any and all circumstances is a mandate in […]

Not ashamed of the gospel

Romans 1:16:  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth: to the Jew first, and also to the Greeks. The gospel of Jesus Christ is not a condemning one.  It is about the love that God has for us, sinners […]
