We may desire to prosper, but let us remember the admonition in Psalm 49:1-20. May our focus be the Lord and may we remember that only faith in Him guarantees eternal life.
Are you listening for the voice of God? Are you determined to hear Him? He sees the desire of our hearts and honours earnest prayers. Samuel followed Eli’s guidance and waited on God, and he heard Him. On this occasion the Lord spoke to the child, not to the Priest. […]
To hear from God consistently, let us make an effort to remain connected to Him. Then we shall flourish, just like Psalm 1:1-3 and John 15:1-8 illustrate.
Hearing what God is saying comes by discipline and practice. Even seasoned preachers can miss the voice of God. Rebellion is one sure way of missing the voice of God. Ezekiel 20:8.
Am I doing what the Lord expects me to do where He expects me to do it? Am I involved in things He has not asked me to do or whose season has passed? What about you? May we discern His desire for us continuously by walking with Him and […]
Being co-creators, we may sometimes try playing God when we want to have our way, just like prophet Jonah. He disliked the people of Nineveh and judged them, yet the Father wanted to save them. May we not be misled by our emotions and discern what the Lord is doing. […]
Romans 12:14-21 goes on to challenge us to step out beyond what the ordinary person would do, beyond our comfort zone. There is sufficient grace for this, for God’s power is made perfect in weakness. Trust Him. Be humble and allow Him to work in you.
If we are humble and teachable and we trust Jehovah, then there are some basic truths we must uphold if we are to good students who are a reflection of Him in whom we trust. Let’s go back to the basic tenets of our faith. Romans 12:9-13.
Humility and trust make us teachable. Humility helps us accept what we are being told or taught and we accept it because we trust the source of knowledge. For Romans 12:1-8 to be possible, it will take humility and trust. May the Lord help us.
There is that we desire to do, but it may not necessarily be what God wants us to do. The critical thing is to be where God wants us to be, doing what He wants us to do. Romans 12:3-8.
