Stop It!

1 Kings 22:48 “Now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail–they were wrecked at Ezion- Geber.” (NIV)

By the grace of God, as a Pastor, I am committed to seeing the people God has called me to, fulfil their destiny. It is my life’s commitment. Our lives must glorify God. God must look at us and say, ‘these are My children’. Read the rest of this entry

The Most

Eph.5:15-16 “So be careful how you live; be mindful of your steps. Don’t run around like idiots as the rest of the world does. Instead, walk as the wise! Make the most of every living and breathing moment because these are evil times” (Voice).

Talking to different people from different backgrounds, at different stages in life and one thing that is common to everyone I speak to whether it is a child, a teenager, an adult, male or female, everyone has a dream. Read the rest of this entry

Your Body Counts

Rom.12:1 “…..Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — which is your spiritual worship.” (NIV, paraphrased)

Do you realize that your body controls your destiny? Yes, your body actually controls your destiny. The reality is if you do not take care of your body, you do not care about your destiny. Read the rest of this entry

Destiny Matters

2 Tim.3:16-17 “Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” (MSG).

A man went to his doctor to complain, he was convinced that something was wrong. The doctor ran some tests and presented his findings to the man. The doctor told him that he needed to change something urgently. Read the rest of this entry

Two Sides

Eccl.10:17 “Happy is the land whose king is a noble leader and whose leaders feast at the proper time to gain strength for their work, not to get drunk.”

As long as what you run to is not God, that thing has become an idol. What is your barn? Yesterday, I shared two of my barns in the past – cereal and video games. Sadly, some people think that their ‘cereal’ is better than another person’s cigarette, Read the rest of this entry

Safe Place?

Isa.55:2-3 “Why spend your money on food that doesn’t give you strength? Why pay for groceries that do you no good? Listen and I’ll tell you where to get good food that fattens up the soul! Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, for the life of your soul is at stake…” (TLB)

When we are under pressure, we all have a ‘safe place’ to hide apart from God and that is usually a problem. When the pressure of parenting, or of marriage, or of finances come to us, we have places that we run to hide, Read the rest of this entry

Just Do It!

Dan.1:15-16 “At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king. So after that, the attendant fed them only vegetables instead of the food and wine provided for the others.”

The Bible further tells us in Dan.1:20 that, “Whenever the king consulted them [that is, Daniel and his friends] in any matter requiring wisdom and balanced judgment, he found them ten times more capable than any of the magicians and enchanters in his entire kingdom” (emphasis added).

The Benefits

1 Cor.6:19 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.”

We will kick-off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, you do not belong to yourself, and you need to understand that your body does not belong to you. Caring for your body, God’s temple, is a discipleship issue. Read the rest of this entry

The Focus

1 Cor.6:19 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.”

Yesterday, we talked about the fact that some people are not pleased with their own body. They do not like what they see in the mirror. It is so bad that it even puts pressure on intimacy between married couples. Read the rest of this entry

Instrument vs. Ornament

Rom.12:2 “Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Our final thought from yesterday’s devotional was that we cannot allow the media’s projection of what beauty is define our mentality. We need to look to the spiritual truths of Christ to overcome the media battering of what ‘beautiful’ looks like. Read the rest of this entry
