Salvation and Healing

Jeremiah 17:14 – “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For you are my praise.” The gospels narrate a number of miracles Jesus did among the people. If you take a deeper look at them, you’ll notice that often when Jesus healed someone, He also told […]

Made Alive

1 Peter 3:18 – “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit.” It was a somber day when Jesus Christ was crucified. The skies turned dark and the earth quaked. The […]

Find Wisdom, Find Happiness

Proverbs 3:13 – “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding.” What makes you truly happy? Perhaps it’s a good day at work, a surprise gift from a friend, a beautiful sunset, or an evening out with your family. Today’s proverb goes a bit deeper though… it says that the […]

Blessed to Be a Blessing

Proverbs 11:26 – “The people will curse him who withholds grain, But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.” What does generosity mean to you?

Listen to God’s Word

Proverbs 8:32 – “Now therefore, listen to me, my children, For blessed are those who keep my ways.” Listening is almost an art. It’s easy for some to spout out their thoughts and words without thinking twice. Others might hesitate to speak out, preferring to process their thoughts internally instead. But listening doesn’t come naturally […]

Faithfulness Breeds Blessing

Proverbs 28:20 – “A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.” Faithfulness is something we don’t easily come across in this generation. We switch companies when our jobs become stagnant, upgrade our phones when they start lagging and even relationships are taken lightly. The Bible, however, […]

Sing – Shout – and Run!

Psalm 92:1 – “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High.” It is good to be thankful, and not to take anyone or anything for granted. When it comes to our God, our thankfulness should be constant, day and night, and we should sing […]

Freely Received to Freely Give

Isaiah 32:8 – “But a generous man devises generous things, And by generosity he shall stand.” Hint:  Never read a verse that starts with a conclusive preposition without reading the previous verses, because it cannot be understood in isolation. Verses 1 through 4 could be a prophecy about Jesus, a King who will reign in righteousness and […]

You Are Protected!

Psalm 121:4 – “Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Have you ever seen, especially in a very hot day, drivers inside their parked cars, with the windows rolled down, taking a nap?  Or even at night, when you are about to enter a gated area, a security person quickly waking up […]
