Sprout Up

Isaiah 61:11 – “…as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.” It’s a well known phrase, “You reap what you sow.” When you sow a mango seed, you expect a mango tree to sprout up. […]


Strength From Above

2 Timothy 2:1 – “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” It’s always beautiful to see the innocent confidence small children have in their parents. Kids may be small, weak and unable to carry out the task at hand. But that doesn’t dampen the confidence they have that […]


By His Stripes

1 Peter 2:24 – “…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” Can you imagine for a moment the events that led up to the crucifixion of Jesus? The Bible tells us it was humiliating, bloody and […]


Be Diligent in Your Calling

2 Peter 1:10 – “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall…” Peter was one of the most vocal disciples of Jesus, especially after He received the power of the Holy Spirit. He was bold in proclaiming the Gospel, and […]


God’s light

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 this scripture, Eliphaz speaks of Job’s wickedness. Eliphaz did not accuse Job to upset him. Eliphaz wanted to help Job and hoped that Job would confess his evil deeds to […]


God’s Powerful Arms

Isaiah 46:4 – “And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.” In this scripture, the foolhardiness of those who made idols and prayed to them, is exposed. The names of […]


God’s Right Hand – The Power of God

Psalm 138:7 – “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.” In this scripture, David sings praises and exalts the name of God when he considers the Omnipotence (greatness) of God. David […]


Companionship of God

Revelation 21:3 – “God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” This chapter talks about John to whom God showed the future. The new Heaven that will replace the old Heaven and a new Earth that will replace the old Earth. The old Heaven and Earth will not be there anymore. The new […]


God’s Lovingkindness and Faithfulness

Psalm 36:5 – “Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” A common contrast we see in the Bible is between the wicked man and the godly man. In this scripture however, the psalmist makes a surprising contrast between a wicked man and God?! The foremost and main quality […]


God our Refuge, Comforter and Protector

Psalm 91:5-6 – “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night. Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.” Where does fear come from? It is not from God. ”for God gave us a spirit not […]
