Fight… I love the account of the armour of God (Eph 6) and all that God gives us to protect us and to help us defend ourselves against spiritual attack but right at the end we have two offensive weapons, two weapons that we can use not only to defend ourselves but to attack the enemy of our souls. First
This blog is a combination of four days Instagram posts… Part One It’s easy to become so familiar with well known scriptures that we don’t really pause to take them in. I wanted to share with you today something that I do when I really want to take a verse in and that’s to read it putting the emphasis on
Have you ever really paused to think what it means to be created in God’s image? Because in… ‘the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;’ We were created to be image bearers. So why do our lives, our thoughts, our words, our actions, so often reflect everything but God? Because sin has defiled
In psalm 54, David has just been betrayed and he pours out his troubles to God, pleading with Him to save him. Then you get to the end of verse 3 and you find the word Selah! David pauses, imagine him, once again his life is in danger, he’s poured it all out to the Lord and then he pauses,
We’re totally unworthy of God’s favour Friends and yet His word is full of rich promises to His people because He’s a loving Heavenly Father and in Christ we are worthy! One that I particularly love is this… ‘And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound
As I was reading in Corinthians this morning I began to wonder how many of us had set goals this year? Things we wanted to focus on, areas we wanted to grow in etc. We’re now a third of the way through the year and life is looking very different to what any of us could have anticipated. So has
I couldn’t sleep early this morning and as I lay there wrestling through some things in prayer the birds began to sing. So I got up, bundled up in a couple of blankets and watched the morning come. First the blackbirds sang and then as it got lighter more and more birds joined in the chorus of praise to their
Friend, cast your burden upon the LORD and He SHALL keep you, He WILL maintain you in His way, He WILL abide in you and you in Him by sweet experience.
Cast your burden on Him and He SHALL bear you up, hold you and carry you through. He WILL nourish you soul and provide everything you need to live a life of obedience that glorifies Him….
There are so many emotions in the Christian’s pathway. We may be going through this day feeling overwhelmed… BUT GOD! Or maybe there’s something ahead that you dread… BUT GOD! Or you feel so worthless and sinful… BUT GOD! Or the storm rages around you and you fear you’ll drown… BUT GOD! Or you feel such a failure… BUT GOD!
There are many times when we long for a bit of peace. Sometimes just in the day to day busyness of life, longing for a moment or two to pause and rest. Then there are times of great trial when our minds are in a whirl, trying to work out solutions or wondering how we’ll get through this hard thing,
Freedom! What a beautiful word, what a beautiful thing, to be free! But in spite of their freedom, the Galatians were picking up their chains again and it troubled Paul. They had been set free from the bondage of the law, as has every born again soul, redeemed by the precious blood of Christ… ‘Wherefore thou art no more a
Intercession – noun – the action of intervening on behalf of another, the action of saying a prayer on behalf of another. ‘Wherefore he (Jesus) is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.’ To the uttermost!! ‘pantelēs.- translated ‘the uttermost’ also means – completely,
Grace upon grace upon grace! “And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” Who are all we? Each true believer. So what is this fulness of Christ? The Greek word translated here as fullness, literally means completion. I love that! If we’re a child of God, we have received of Christ’s fullness, of His completion. We’ve
There’s a beautiful prayer of Moses in psalm 90. In verse 14 he prays this… “O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” What a wonderful desire! I decided to dig a bit deeper today and look at all the meanings for the six Hebrew words that make up this verse…
Impossible shouldn’t be in the believers vocabulary… ‘for with God all things are possible.’ Do you have big prayers? Then pray then, pray them in faith, believing for with God ALL things are possible!
