Yes and Amen

2 Corinthians 1:19-20 – For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by […]


It’s Only Temporary

2 Corinthians 4:17 – “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” Aren’t you glad that your troubles and trials are only temporary? In fact, today’s verse tells us they are momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles don’t last long at all! As you stand […]


Have Unwavering Hope

Hebrews 10:23 – “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” Hope is such a beautiful word. It helps us look ahead to fresh beginnings and brighter days, better circumstances and lesser pain. It’s easy to hope when we’re looking forward to an exciting event in […]


Lips that Praise

Psalm 63:3 – “Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.” The dictionary defines praise as, “an expression of respect and gratitude”. When we praise someone who’s done something exceptionally well, we always use our words. We acknowledge their contribution and convey our appreciation verbally. While we don’t hesitate to […]


Blessings of the Righteous

Proverbs 15:6 – “In the house of the righteous is much treasure.” The book of Proverbs is filled with a list of blessings that await those who live righteous lives. When we think of righteousness, we always think of being perfect and sinless in our words, thoughts and actions. But that isn’t always possible. We’ve […]


Accept Discipline

Revelation 3:19 – “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.” Discipline is never pleasant. Kids don’t like to be punished for bad behaviour, neither do we adults enjoy being chided for mistakes we’ve made. To err is human, they say. And yes, nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes. But the true measure […]


Rest Awhile

Matthew 11:28 – “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Rest is not a habit our generation is quite familiar with. We’re actually more acquainted with its opposite – stress! We work hard from sun up to sun down, and then work some more to […]


Blessings Unlimited

Deuteronomy 28:2 – “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.” Today’s verse is a prelude to a host of blessings that God promised the Israelites. The Lord promised to bless their land, livestock, work, family, health, food, finances, and so much […]


The Light of Life

John 8:12 – “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Walking in the dark can be quite a scary experience. Even if the road is dimly lit by streetlights, we still wonder […]


Lord of Grace, Mercy and Justice

Isaiah 30:18—”… that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.” Often, we pray and wait on God for Him to work. But have you considered this, that […]
