Don’t doubt God’s Word

Don’t doubt God’s Word

You may doubt your own ability, but never doubt God’s – or His promises and His willingness to fulfil them. The psalmist wrote, ‘You have magnified Your word above… Your name’ (Psalm 138:2 NKJV). The only thing in the universe that God has placed above His name is His ...

Try to see people as God sees them

Try to see people as God sees them

When you consider some of the people Jesus called to be His disciples, the word ‘dysfunctional’ comes to mind. But Jesus wasn’t put off. Like finding treasure in the trash, He was able to see their potential, draw it out and develop it. And that’s your story too, isn’t it? ...

Encourage your pastor

Encourage your pastor

The Bible says King Josiah ‘set the priests in their duties and encouraged them for the service of the house of the LORD’. Josiah did two things: he instructed them, and he encouraged them. Why? Because one without the other doesn’t work! How often have you left church ...

How to stay together

How to stay together

Picture two little rowing boats setting off across a choppy lake. A man sits in one, and a woman in the other. They have every intention of rowing side by side, yet they begin drifting in opposite directions until they can hardly hear each other above the wind. Soon the man ...

Express your love

Express your love

When it comes to loving others: 1) You need to say it. An old fisherman who’d been married for fifty years to his patient, long-suffering wife, rarely took time to express his affection. Finally in frustration one day she said to him, ‘How come you never tell me you love ...

The power of one (1)

Gideon came from a family of idol worshippers, so he didn’t think he had much of a future. But God thought differently. He said to him, ‘Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?’ And today Gideon is remembered as one of the ...

God says ‘Yes’

God says ‘Yes’

You will notice that in the Old Testament God’s promises came with conditions that had to be met. In other words, you had to do something. ‘If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land’ (Isaiah 1:19 NIV 1984 Edition). To receive God’s promise there ...
