What great love the Father has lavished.

1 John 3:1a See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!..

8pm rolled by and I’d had enough of human interaction, I needed to be alone with my creator. I prayed whilst lying down, offloading my burdens to the Lord, and thanking God for the wonders he was performing in my life. Prayer for me is really intimate and personal, and this evening I felt even more free to open up to God about my deepest fears, burdens, and anxieties.

Following Christ

Following Christ is a commitment.

To let go and surrender all that I am and all that I have to him and his purposes. It’s a walk on the death row, carrying my cross daily and witnessing to an unbelieving world. It is the desire to delight in his presence daily instead of indulging myself in the empty entertainment the world has to offer. It is the discipline of denying myself of the desires of my flesh and submitting to the perfect will of the Holy Spirit. Continue reading “Following Christ”

Enter the Kingdom as a Child

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-3)

God recently reminded me of such a glorious yet humbling truth – he delights in those that come to Him like a child.

Now, I remember how I behaved when I was a young child. I completely trusted my parents. I believed everything they told me and knew that they wanted the best for me. I wasn’t constantly looking for ways to pay them back for all they were doing for me, but instead I received their gifts and service as a sign of their love for me.

This is exactly what the Lord wants from me. This is exactly what the Lord wants from us. Continue reading “Enter the Kingdom as a Child”

Immediately

Matthew 14:30-31
30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” 
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

Jesus is always on time, He is a very present help in times of trouble.

Sometimes we go through storms thinking we are alone, but Jesus Christ was there all along. Sometimes we allow ourselves to drown in fear, doubt, insecurity and in failure, when all Jesus needs to hear is the word Continue reading “Immediately”

Walk with God

Ever had those nights where you are studying the word and Abba breaks you down? Those nights where the Holy Spirit sends sharp conviction right into the depths of your heart and it tears you apart?

Yep. Happened to me.

What had I done? I hadn’t been standing firm, or holding FAST to the faith just as Paul repeatedly admonished Timothy to do. I was entertaining and therefore condoning false teachings and sin! Continue reading “Walk with God”
