Being strong

Ephesians 6:10:  Finally, my bretheren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. There is a brief disciplining in the previous verses about child/parent, master/servant relationships.  Then, Paul says to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Irrespective of the positions or the titles that we […]


Strong in weakness through Christ

II Corinthians 12:9:  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for  my strength is made perfect in weakness.  Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Paul had some kind of a trouble or weakness that compelled him to look […]


God’s favoured people

Psalm 37:25:  I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. God will never forsake the righteous.  The children of the righteous will never be deserted or abandoned.  The psalmist is writing here about the faithfulness of God in how God protects and […]


God, our provider

Philippians 4:19:  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Our God is the One who supplies all our need and not our greed.  He supplies our need according to His riches in glory by Jesus.  He is so rich in glory that He does not […]


Repenting is being faithful.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Sin throughout the Bible revolves around two concepts. To transgress means “to step across” or “to go beyond a set boundary or limit.” This concept can be compared to an athletic […]


Do not be deceived!

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. The spirit of […]


Free will is not freedom.

2 Corinthians 3: 17 Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. If you know the Lord; you will know freedom. This freedom is not the kind of definition the world practices or understands. The freedom of the Lord and knowing him is the freedom of […]


He is the potter and we are his clay!

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. The potter moulds the clay until it is ready for the purpose it was created for. He takes a solid ball of clay which is pressed, squeezed and gently pulled […]


We are over-comers!

1 Corinthians  15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. Be of good cheer for the Lord has overcome the world. Every day we wake up to this world; where we toil […]


If You Breathe, Praise the Lord!

Psalm 150:6 – “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” If there is breath, there is life.  “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7).
