God’s ways are higher , He has a divine purpose for His timing and He will turn all that the enemy means for evil, for our good Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Waiting on God is no foreign notion to most of us. God hears our cries but sometimes He delays for a reason, because His ways are not our ways. In Psalm 69:17 David … Continue reading Raise, Strengthen and Deepen
Ephesians 5:15-20 “Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” As we continue to adapt to this changed way of … Continue reading Are we Living well?
Romans 12:12-13 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. I had a moment of fear and panic a couple of days ago. To be honest it was more than a moment. With all that is going on, I think every one can relate to having moments of strength and moments that we allow our weakness, helplessness and fear to dominate our thoughts. I had heard that a colleague from my husband’s work, who was on contractual work will be let go at the end of the month. … Continue reading Faithful and Faith-Full
Hello from down under. If anyone has had the dream of wanting to be a part of a dystopian themed movie, well, it sometimes does feel like it now or at least if all you see is the news, then you feel like it for sure. I have been very cautious with how I engage with social media at the moment. Whilst it keeps us informed and enables us to stay in touch with others, it can definitely drag you onto a path that can feed into any fear related to the current situation. I want to thank everyone who … Continue reading Be the loudest Voice for Jesus
Jesus is the revealer and the renewer of life. How does He bring about this renewal? Jesus meeting a person or having an interaction with a person often led to a radically changed trajectory of their life path. If we look at the encounters of Jesus in the new testament there are either some physical, emotional, social or soul changes. An encounter with Jesus should reflect a change in one’s life and it is not a one and done thing, we all know that it results in a life process of continuous renewal, refining and growth. One such encounter we … Continue reading An encounter with Jesus
I am not very fond of storms; it does freak me out a little bit. As summer came to an end in Perth, we do get some thunderstorms at this time of the year and being on the coast, it gets extremely windy. In the safety of your home a thunderstorm can seems very different to experiencing one when you are out on the water in a small boat. Well the disciples found themselves in this very situation as we read in Mark 4:35-41. Mark 4:35-41 “That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to … Continue reading Storms
There are some people in life whom we love spending time with and some we hope for the interaction to end sooner rather than later. There are those who give us a very clear sense of the spirit’s presence in their life after we spend some time with them. And it leaves you feeling really good and peaceful and wanting a little more of that interaction. I have the blessing of knowing a lovely elderly lady at church who is one such person, the spirits presence and work in her life is so evident. No bad day or changed circumstance … Continue reading Descriptor of HIM
