Receiving from God

You can never receive anything from God until you personally recognise that it is God’s will for you to have it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s healing, finances, fruitfulness or success – the same principle applies. It will not happen because your Pastor said it is God’s will for you, or a mentor said so, or your Aunty said so, or your parents said so, […]

Ignorance is bliss? Think again!

I have heard people say many times that what you don’t know doesn’t hurt you. This may be sound logical in the world, but not according to the Word. According to the Bible, ignorance is to be avoided at all cost, as it brings captivity and destruction. Isaiah 5:13-14 (KJV) [13] Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their […]

Should a Christian Tithe?

The tithe has been a controversial topic as far back as I can remember. When I was in the university, we would get together as a bunch of Christian student leaders to discuss the scriptures (a very enjoyable past-time). The tithe always seemed to polarise opinions, with many totally convinced it is an abiding covenant obligation, whereas others were of the opinion that it is […]

Hallowing the Sabbath

The Sabbath is an interesting concept for many of us new testament believers. Many consider it no longer relevant, perhaps somewhat archaic. But what does God’s Word say about the Sabbath? Let’s start from the very beginning, with the book of Genesis. Genesis 2:2-3 (CWSB) 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh […]

A Good Night’s Sleep!

​I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me – Psa 3:5 (NIV) How many times have we woken up, stretched ourselves and gone off into our daily chores without a shard of thought for the one who wakes us up from sleep? No, not your wife nudging you in the ribs, nor your kids trying to nestle under the covers […]

Walking By Faith – No Matter What!

For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Cor 5:7) As believers, the bible expects us to walk by faith. Walking by faith implies walking according to God’s Word. Sometimes we are faced with a dilemma, where the circumstance we are facing contradicts the Word of God that we believe in. At those times, our victory is assured only as we line up our […]

Our God is Good!

Is God always good? Or is He only good to us when we experience good things? Is our concept of the nature and character of God defined by the sum total of our daily life experiences, or are we spending time getting to know who He is through the medium He has given us to do so – His Word? About two and half months […]

God Cares !

Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should not have compassion on the child of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me – Isa 49:15-16 KJV We have all experienced it at some point in our lives: everything is going well, […]

Decisions

Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (Prov 4:7 [KJV]) Sometimes we wander through life, wondering what our next decision should be. Should we take on that “fantastic” job? Should we marry that beautiful or handsome person that always manages to set our heart racing? Should we relocate or stay where we are? Decisions, Decisions, Decisions. We […]
