If you are feeling uncomfortable, confused, uncertain about your next step

If you are feeling uncomfortable, confused, uncertain about your next step, it’s because God is pushing you out of your nest of comfort The mother eagle puts sharp sticks into the nest If her eaglets don’t fly out on their own. If they don’t leave, the mother does. Their hinger will force them out, if not they will die. The human equivalent of this is that if we don’t choose to move out of our familiar and comfortable places, we…

God can place you exactly where you need to be

At the time of the birth of Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, a census was called and everyone had to go to the town of their birth. This caused Jesus to be born in the region prophesied by Isaiah. God can place you exactly where you need to be to fulfill his purpose for you. But only if you obey him as Joseph and Mary obeyed the authorities of the day. God is drawing in fine lines, detail upon detail,…

Tears and Turmoil

Tears and Turmoil Tears are liquid words Psalm 38:9 TPTGod holds our tears as very precious, He takes notice of them and understands them, even as Jesus was a “man of sorrows and acquainted with grief”, so our heavenly father also empathises with us in our sorrows.Psalm 56:8“You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?”Indeed, doctors have found that tears of grief have opioids in them, so when we say “I had…

Being like Jesus

Being like Jesus 2 I spoke about Jesus’ suffering in my last post on this subject, but there is another layer of that suffering, that is being hated for no reason or cause. Hatred also involves persecution, in the NT translation of the word. they’ll hate you for no good reason, except that you love and follow Jesus. In Chapters 14 and 15 of the book of John, Jesus is preparing his close inner circle team for the fact that…

The Hands of God

THE HANDS OF GODWhen God created the earth, and universe/s [ new research shows that there are more galaxies and planets than we have previously known ], he used the power of his voice, he commanded things to be and they were so. Genesis chapters 1-3But when he wanted to create a person, someone made in his own image, he used his hands!! Why?, I believe it is because his love flowed through his hands. Babies are responsive to both…

So you want to be like Jesus

So you want to be like Jesus? There are two aspects of this, His life style and His character. We can study His lifestyle through the New Testament record and teachings also.While we can seek to emulate Him by obeying His teachings, the development of His character through His sufferings can only be achieved by allowing Him to work in our hearts and minds through the circumstances, which we often call tribulations, that come against us. Here is a glimpse…

Let us talk revival

LET US TALK REVIVAL!!!!!! We are currently seeing new outpourings of God’s presence in the US, in particular. The outpouring in Asbury, is wonderful to see, especially as it is the younger people who have received it. Surely to some extent God is blessing the young people in that country because there have been so many school shootings there, and this outpouring is bringing some healing to that generation.Yes, we who love Jesus have prayed for many years for this,…

Faith

Faith is an action word, if you read Hebrews chapter 11, you will see that most verses begin with the words “By faith”,and are then followed by a description of what a Bible, patriarch achieved through their faith in God and his directions to them. In verse 36 however, the narrative changes, and speaks of those who were martyred for their faith, because they would not renounce their faith, the cruel Roman empire killed them. Verse 39 says that these…

Hold Fast

The Bible exhorts us to HOLD FAST our faith in Jesus.Hang onto that faith as if your life depended upon it because it does. !I read a post recently by a woman who had been a Christian but let go of her faith because her prayers were not answered and I felt so sad for her, but also understood up to a point.We have all been in a barren place where we felt alone and weren’t seeing answers, but the…

Death and Life

Everything that God does, Satan will attempt to counterfeit. Just like God will send you a warning dream to protect you, Satan will send false warning dreams to put fear in you. How then do you know the difference between a dream from God and a deceptive dream that came from Satan? Remember that God often deposits His plans for your future into your dreams at night. That deposit can be likened to the planting of a seed in your…

Be Fully Awake

Be fully awake Luke 9:28-36 Jesus took his key leaders up the mountain with Him, Peter John and James.These men were his inner circle, they were privileged to be invited to this higher level of fellowship and revelation However, they found themselves overcome with tiredness, not surprising as the natural body was not created to handle the fullness of God’s gloryPerhaps they were also under spiritual oppression as the enemy attacked them because of their role. It was not until…
