Give God the Glory

Isaiah 42:8 – “I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.” We all love to be acknowledged when we do something great. More so in this age of social media where accomplishments are shared, not just with immediate family and […]

The Lord Preserves You

Psalm 36:6 – “Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O Lord, You preserve man and beast.” Have you taken a look outside your window recently? Given the stay at home orders issued by governments around the world and the urban lifestyle we’ve got accustomed to, stepping out to […]

Limitless Mercy

Psalm 36:5 – “Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” We see limits all around us – either imposed by others or self-prescribed. Some limits we push, like staying up way too late, but others we follow. (The speed limit on a highway might be 80kmph but we […]

Love Like Jesus

John 15:12 – “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” Love, as the dictionary defines it, is an intense feeling of deep affection for someone or something. But the love defined in the Bible is so much more than a feeling – no matter how intense. Love originated […]

Let The Whole World Know

Isaiah 12:5 Sing to the Lord, for He has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

But how often have we ourselves ‘proclaimed’ to the world what the […]

How blessed it is to sing of His tender mercies and loving kindness, for great is His faithfulness unto His people! His love reaches the heavens and His faithfulness to the skies.

The Power Of Thanksgiving

Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever. It’s amazing how something as simple as ‘thanksgiving’ can be ‘powerful.’ While we are encouraged again and again to give thanks to our Mighty Lord of the heavens, how humbling it is to know that this act of gratitude also brings with […]

What does the Lord require of you?

Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? What does it take to walk with the Lord? Micah lists three simple, but important requirements that the Lord looks for. […]

The Question of Separation

Mark 10:9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate. There was a very interesting debate going on between two schools of thought. One view said that divorce can be granted on any issue, while the other view was that the only legal ground for granting divorce was adultery. This matter was presented […]

The Three IFs

Ecclesiastes 4:10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. This is the beginning of three very important ‘ifs’ in life. – If you fall, slip in your decisions or get weary with the burdens of life, do […]
