The Battle is the Lord’s…

David fought a lion, a bear and a giant and he won every time. It all sounds rather extreme until you add God into the equation. David didn’t fight alone and neither do you child of God. We may live in peace where we live but for the Christian there’s a constant war being waged.Continue reading “The Battle is the Lord’s…”

Rejoice in the Lord…

The first half of this verse really stood out to me this morning… ‘Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.’ The Israel of God is each ransomed sinner, each child of God…let each child of God rejoice in him that made him.

His Banner Over Me Was Love…

I randomly opened my Bible this morning and the first words my eyes fell on were… ‘He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.’ What a beautiful truth to look at on Valentine’s day friends!

YOU can’t … But God CAN!

God has promised to supply all our need… ‘But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’ It’s easy to think of that verse meaning just our physical needs but this encompasses so much more than that. God will supply not only our physical needs but ourContinue reading “YOU can’t … But God CAN!”

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Ps 16:11 I decided to really dig into the Hebrew for this verse which is actually only nine Hebrew words, each word being translated into a phrase in English.

Sitting by the Fire…

There’s something cosy about a fire, to sit by it and watch the flames dancing and feel the heat of it warming your body. But it’s of little use to us from a distance, we may be able to admire it if we’re not too far away, but we won’t feel the warmth of it.Continue reading “Sitting by the Fire…”

Which Skeleton are You?

The tree skeletons have fascinated me for several years but this year God opened my eyes to something new…. ….they are just like God’s people friends! Each of these trees are firmly planted and if we’re born again we have been planted in Christ,… ‘planted in a good soil by great waters, that it mightContinue reading “Which Skeleton are You?”
