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 our desires and His ways our
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
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!
If someone insults or hurts us or those we love it’s very easy to react in the heat of the moment unless we’re…’kept by the power of God.’ David is a good example of this. He’d protected Nabal’s shepherds and sheep in the wilderness and later when he had need he sent a peaceful message to Nabal asking if he
In Matt 24 the disciples ask Jesus what the signs of His second coming shall be. Jesus tells them and then ends with this… ‘But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.’ So what does it mean to endure? This phrase ‘he that shall endure’, is just one Greek word – hypomenō – it has
A friend mentioned a verse yesterday when we were talking about fighting the devil… ‘Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.’ Then when I opened my Bible this morning, there it was, following on from a verse I mentioned in my post yesterday. (He giveth more grace!) Little did I know that within the hour I’d be needing
Are you a fixer? If there’s a problem do you want to just get on and sort it out, fight for what you think is right or do what you can to make sure things go your way?…. Friends, if we know Jesus as our Saviour and are looking to Him, then we don’t need to fight alone, even when we don’t feel God’s presence, He still goes with us…
Friends, life can get overwhelming but however hard things may be, we have everything we need in Christ. We are surrounded by God’s goodness to us. Most of us have family and friends, food and a home to live in and so much more. Following Jesus isn’t hard Friends, those commands in the Bible aren’t just a list of rules
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. The enemies of our soul,
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 our spiritual, mental and emotional needs
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.
