Together…

Part 4 ‘Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me’ The word translated here as ‘take’ also means to lift up, bear, carry, to take upon oneself and carry what has been raised up. The rest we’ve been looking at comes as we’re yoked or joined together with Christ. When His desires become ourContinue reading “Together…”

Weary?…

Part 3 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. This invitation to come to Him that Jesus gives is to weary, burdened souls. ‘Ye that labour,’ comes from the Greek word – kopiao – to feel fatigue, toil, be wearied, labour with wearisome effort, exhausted.Continue reading “Weary?…”

Who?…

Part 2 Continued from yesterday… Who are these needy souls to come to? ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest….’ Jesus doesn’t just say come, He says says come unto ME! Come UNTO me. Draw near, come right close, don’t stand lingering at a distanceContinue reading “Who?…”

Are you Fighting?…

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 theContinue reading “Are you Fighting?…”

Emphasis…

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.

Made in God’s image…

So why do our lives, our thoughts, our words, our actions, so often reflect everything butContinue reading “Made in God’s image…”

Selah – pause!

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 theContinue reading “Selah – pause!”

All Grace…

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 sufficiencyContinue reading “All Grace…”

Goals in a Changing World

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 usContinue reading “Goals in a Changing World”

Early in the Morning…

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 theContinue reading “Early in the Morning…”
