What are We Longing For?

I’ve just come to the end of looking at John’s first epistle with a group of friends and there’s one verse, right at the end that is really searching me and I felt led to share my thoughts. There’s a part of me that always wants to post just positive things but we so needContinue reading “What are We Longing For?”

Kept…

Kept!  There’s only one thing that keeps each precious child of God and that’s God’s power working in us through the Holy Spirit helping us to exercise our faith to trust in God.  We are… ‘kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.’ By God’sContinue reading “Kept…”

Are you strong enough?

It’s easy to think of seeking as being something we do before we come to know Jesus as our Saviour but it’s also something we should be doing constantly… ‘Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.’ Here firstly, we’re told to seek the Lord’s strength. Maybe you need it today Friend? AsContinue reading “Are you strong enough?”

How are we coming? 

I love the book of Esther. A decree has been made, her people are in danger of being killed and she is the one who must petition the king.  But it wasn’t that easy, even as his wife she couldn’t come to him, into the inner court unasked, because unless he held out the goldenContinue reading “How are we coming? “

I am the LORD thy God…

It’s easy to hear certain phrases that are often repeated in the Bible and yet not pause to fully take them in.

BUT in spite of all your need, in spite of all that needs to be done, in spite of all that clamours for your attention… ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God,Continue reading “God Will Provide…”

How Do You Love?

How do we love?… ‘My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.’ It’s one thing to say we love God but quite another to walk it out. God doesn’t just want our words, He wants and deserves everything from His children because He gave everythingContinue reading “How Do You Love?”

Everyone is Invited

The table is set, it’s covered with the best food, will you come and eat? ‘Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.’ What is this table, what is this feast, is it not Christ Jesus, the living bread, the Word?…Continue reading “Everyone is Invited”

THIS Generation?

THIS is the generation?… Friends, may it even be as David wrote…for THIS generation…. ‘This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.’ ‘Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.’ Open yourContinue reading “THIS Generation?”
