  • Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved (ESV) – Psalm 55:22 If I cast my burden on the Lord, sharing my thoughts, concerns, and worries with Him rather than bearing them alone, He will sustain me. The cause for concern may not […]

    Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Today, I want to share a few thoughts on faith, particularly in connection with the adjective “unfeigned” as used in the King James Version of the Bible. If you use more modern versions such as the NKJV or NIV, the word will likely be rendered “sincere” or “genuine”. In the first chapters of both his […]

  • Waiting

    Waiting

    Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psa. 27:14, NIV) I don’t like waiting. Whether for a divine promise or a human verdict, I like to see or experience the things I am expecting as soon as I am aware they are on the way. Waiting often feels […]

    Jonah – the prophet who rebelled

    The Bible is full of the stories of many prophets, many of them with eponymous books in the Bible, full of the messages God sent them to deliver to various recipients. While a few of them had some of their personal stories told, majority are known mostly for the messages they delivered. But one man […]

  • Compelled by the Spirit

    Compelled by the Spirit

    “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. Acts 20:22 (NIV) Have you ever gone to a place solely on account of God’s will? Or maybe taken a decision only because you were persuaded it was what God wanted? An action without benefit or […]

  • A Requirement for Stewards

    A Requirement for Stewards

    Moreover, it is required in stewards that one be found faithful (I Cor. 4:2) The simplicity of the statement above belies its depth. Apostle Paul earlier mentioned that he should be considered a servant of Christ and steward of the mysteries of God. Then he mentions, as a matter of fact, that faithfulness is a […]
