Stand On God’s Word (2)

‘Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.’ Psalm 119:50 NLT When you are in pain. Sometimes God lifts you out of your situation. Other times, He carries you through and makes you stronger by proving His love and faithfulness to you. Sometimes He relieves you of the pain; other times He sustains you in the midst of it. If you’re in pain today, read these promises from God’s Word and stand on them: ‘Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.’ ‘Let Your unfailing love comfort me, just as You promised me, Your servant. Surround me with Your tender mercies so I may live.’ (Psalm 119:76–77 NLT) ‘Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress....

Stand On God’s Word (1)

‘I am ready to perform My word.’ Jeremiah 1:12 NKJV When you are facing danger. The psalmist said: ‘This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety… my God and I trust Him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armour and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you… If you make...

Make Your Relationships A Win-Win

‘Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ Philippians 2:4 ESV If your only motive for giving to someone is to see what you can get back, you will be disappointed. The Bible says, ‘Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ When you give yourself to another person for that person’s development and well-being, you are truly giving and God will bless you for it. If you’re married or a parent, you know this from personal experience. What does your husband or wife value most highly? Money in the bank, or your time freely given? What would your children rather have? A toy, or your undivided attention?...

That’s How It Works!

‘The Lord had regard for Abel and his offering: but for Cain and his offering He had no regard.’ Genesis 4:4–5 NASB Cain cultivated the ground, planted the seed, gathered the harvest, and offered God the fruits of his labours. It seems likely that he thought God would be impressed, and that He would feel obligated to bless him. But that’s not how it works! Abel, on the other hand, obviously had a different attitude. Perhaps he told God, ‘I did nothing. You created the lamb I’m offering. I’m just giving You back what’s Yours, and asking You to bless it.’ And God did! You can tell a lot about somebody by how they approach God. Some of us act like God owes us something. Others among us are so...

How To Raise A Secure Adult

‘The children of your people will live in security.’ Psalm 102:28 NLT When you ask parents about their future hopes for their kids, you’ll hear words like happy, secure, and self-confident. Those are nice sentiments, but not guarantees. But what makes that kind of adult? A childhood filled with trophies and good grades? A life in a village, far away from the crime-ridden city? Enriching pastimes like travel and music? The truth is, not one of these things predicts later happiness. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t encourage children to study and excel; having parents who value knowledge makes a difference. The important qualities, however, aren’t external, they’re internal. Psychologist Dr...

The Right Mind-Fuel?

‘Be changed within by a new way of thinking.’ Romans 12:2 NCV What we consume determines our performance. That’s why you need to be careful what you feed your body, your children, your pets, and even your car. But what you feed your mind is equally important, especially when you consider these two laws that operate in life: (1) The law of cognition. Your thoughts influence your emotions and your behaviour. The Bible says, ‘As he thinks in his heart, so is he.’ (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV) Jesus said a good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit (see Matthew 7:18). In other words, good thinking can’t produce bad results, just as bad thinking can’t produce good...

Looking For A Lifetime Partner

‘Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?’ 2 Corinthians 6:14 NIV An ox and a donkey each have a tail, two eyes, and four legs. But if you harness them together, they won’t get along or work well together. Actually, they will pull in different directions. That’s because God made them with very different natures and attributes! With that picture in your mind, here’s some advice on dating you’d be wise to heed. Looks soon fade, so choose someone who has other, less obvious attributes. For example: (1) Consider their manners and how they treat people who serve them—like shop assistants....

Try Less and Trust More!

‘He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.’ Philippians 1:6 NIV If you want God’s will to be done in your life, don’t rush things. Sarah, Abraham’s wife, did that. As a result Ishmael was born, and that brought all sorts of strife and family complications—that still trouble us, even in the twenty-first century. Remember: ‘Flesh gives birth to flesh but the Spirit gives birth to spirit’ (John 3:6 NIV), so be sure your plans are conceived by God’s Spirit. Don’t try to salvage anything flesh-based. God said, ‘My covenant I will establish with Isaac.’ (Genesis 17:21 NIV) Isaac was born as a result of God’s will, done God’s way, in God’s time. Everything that’s conceived...

Use The Power Of Praise

‘His praise shall continually be in my mouth.’ Psalm 34:1 KJV You can praise God too little, but you can never praise Him too much. David writes, ‘From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.’ (Psalm 113:3 KJV) ‘Seven times a day I praise You. (Psalm 119:164 NIV) ‘His praise shall continually be in my mouth.’ (Psalm 34:1 KJV) When you are overwhelmed by circumstances, the last thing you feel like doing is praising God. But it’s the first thing you should do, because praise gets your attention off yourself and onto God’s miraculous power. Jehoshaphat faced an army he had no hope of defeating. But when he started to praise God, his enemies...

How To Receive God’s Forgiveness

‘You forgave me! All my guilt is gone.’ Psalm 32:5 NLT When God forgave David for adultery and murder, he wrote: ‘Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty! When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night Your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed my sins to You and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said… “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And You forgave me! All my guilt is gone.’ (Psalm 32:1–5 NLT)...
