Good vs. Great

Prov.20:12 “Ears to hear and eyes to see—both are gifts from the Lord.

The first thing about opportunity is, You Must Say No to Good Opportunities So That You Can Say Yes To Great Ones. This is heavily dependent on seeing. The fact that things are coming Read the rest of this entry

Habitually

Ezra 8:23 “So we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would take care of us, and he heard our prayer.”

Prayer is not just a religious duty or a meditative exercise that results in a pleasant feeling of calm. Prayer actually makes a difference in both regular daily life and occasional crisis. Read the rest of this entry

Get Light

Matt.11:29 (NKJV) “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Having a culture of gratitude is really powerful; in our personal lives, in our families. In the God’s Favourite House church family, having a culture of gratitude is very deliberate. Read the rest of this entry

Turning Point

Ex.15:23 When they came to the oasis of Marah, the water was too bitter to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means “bitter”) … 25 So Moses cried out to the Lord for help, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. Moses threw it into the water, and this made the water good to drink.

In Esau’s life we see the weight and the consequences [the Marah] of missed opportunity. Thankfully, God is merciful! Even in all, God still gave Esau a door, a way of escape. Read the rest of this entry

Don’t Miss It

Ps.51:1 Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins… 4 Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight… 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.”

The fifth Marah I have been asked to speak to is The Marah of missed opportunities. There are certain positions that you know that you cannot attain in your strength. Read the rest of this entry

Turn-Around

2Cor.4:17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” [with emphasis]

God wants you to know that your troubles, no matter how big and complex they may seem, are small. Who will you believe, the problem or God? Read the rest of this entry

Pointers

Ps.32:“The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

 

In the path of life, if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, there are certain pointers to pre-determine decisions when we get to crossroads. Read the rest of this entry

Pathway

Ps.32:“The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

Roads are pathways to destinations. Road one leads to destination one and road two leads to destination two. The point of intersection between two pathways [roads] leading to two different destinations is a crossroad. Read the rest of this entry

Mission Field

Acts 20:24 But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”

Our scripture reference today poses us a question that you and I must answer for ourselves. Darius said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve so faithfully, rescue you” [Dan.6:16]. Read the rest of this entry

Who Are You?

2 Kings 5: 2 “…Aramean raiders had invaded the land of Israel, and among their captives was a young girl who had been given to Naaman’s wife as a maid. One day the girl said to her mistress, “I wish my master would go to see the prophet… He would heal him of his leprosy.”

 

The world’s most pressing need after Jesus, is character. An anonymous quote says, “Character is who you are when no one is watching”. And I believe it is really apt.
