Pressure Cooker!

2 Samuel 22:33 “God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.”


We will pick up from where we left off yesterday and that is in James 1:2-4 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” (MSG). Read the rest of this entry

Choose Carefully

Proverbs 20:6 “Most people will tell you what loyal friends they are, but are they telling the truth?” (LB)

Over the next few days, we are going to experience relational metamorphosis. The truth is that the greatest joy you will feel and experience in life will come through people. At the same time, the greatest pain you will feel and experience in life will come through people. Read the rest of this entry

The Fundamentals

Psalm 2:8 “Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.” (NKJV)

One of the best ways of getting the best out of relationships is by asking the right questions. And like we said yesterday, most people do not know how to ask questions in relationships. You have people around you even now, who know things that can change your life forever. Read the rest of this entry

R & R

Proverbs 18:15 “Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.”

To make the most of your life, to have mental metamorphosis, to enjoy consistent mental health Do Not Believe Everything You THINK. Guard Your Mind Against GARBAGE. Let God Stretch Your IMAGINATION. Renew Your Mind Daily With GOD’S WORD. Read the rest of this entry

Godly Mind

Romans 12:2 “Do not allow this world to mould you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.” (Voice)

Sometimes, when we think about God transforming us, we imagine that thunder will strike from heaven and the whole earth will shake. But the Bible says God transforms us by changing the way we think. It is the small things that nobody sees that bring about the big things that everybody wants. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Is… II

Hebrews 11:11 “Sarah, too, had faith… for she realized that God, who gave her his promise, would certainly do what he said.” (LB).

We know something will happen only when God says it will happen. Hebrews 11:11 “…Abraham trusted that God would keep his promise.” (GWT). Why did Abraham leave his home country and travel to a strange land? It is because God promised. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Is… I

Hebrews 11:1 “What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.” (LB, emphasis added).

Before we begin to look at growing our faith, let us first answer the question, what is faith? The first thing we need to realize about faith is that Faith Is Higher Than HOPE. Hope is wanting something to be that is not, and having no assurance that it will be. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Matters

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.”

Whenever the enemy comes at you, life throws challenges at you, and when you are under pressure, it is not about your cars, houses, finances, health, or your children. It is all about your faith. Jesus said to Peter, the enemy wants to sift you all, but I pray that your faith will not fail (Luke 22:31). Read the rest of this entry

Grow & Contribute

Hebrews 5:12 “By now you should be teachers. Instead, you still need someone to teach you…!” (GW, emphasis added).

You can grow old, without growing up. There are a lot of people who have grown old, but they have not grown up. They are saved, but they are shallow. As you grow old physically and in Christ, God wants you to grow up. You have to be a life learner; you have to be a disciple. Read the rest of this entry

Love & Grow

Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding”

Yesterday, we looked at the first of the five areas that you and I need to focus on for the rest of our lives and have a significant life both here on earth and in heaven. The first is, God wants us to centre our lives around Him. God wants to be the centre of your life and my life. Read the rest of this entry
