Two Plans For Today!

Micah 4:11 “But now *many nations are gathered against you.* They say, “Let her be defiled, let our eyes gloat over Zion!” (4:12) But *they do not know the thoughts of the LORD; they do not understand his plan* , he who gathers them like sheaves to the threshing floor.” The Bible heavily and continuously discusses the theme of defeating enemies. As you read, you...

I Wish You Love!

Song of Solomon 7:10 “I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me.” The book of Song of Solomon is a book about love. Raw love. Not theoretic love. Not boring love. Sweet love that we all experience and then think it’s evil or embarrassing. Not love that looks for inner beauty, no! Just love. Not love for husband and wife role…just love! Love that acknowledges the role...

Because Of His Covenant

2 Kings 13:23 “But the LORD was gracious to them and had compassion and showed concern for them *because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.* To this day he has been unwilling to destroy them or banish them from his presence.” Israelites were descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God made a covenant (agreement) with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that He will be their God...

Although They Were Few!

2 Chronicles 24:24 “Although the Aramean army had come with *only a few men, the LORD delivered into their hands a much larger army.* Because Judah had forsaken the LORD, the God of their fathers, judgment was executed on Joash.” Although they were few men… Although they were expected to lose the battle… Although every circumstance was working against them… God on...

We Are Not Desperate!

Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time, __*relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place,_*_ but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”” These are part of the words of Mordechai to Queen Esther who seemed reluctant to help him and other Jews from a life...

Impunity Is Temporary

2 Thessalonians 1:6 “God is just: _He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you_ *1:7* _and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well._ This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.” Impunity is freedom from punishment or facing consequences of bad behaviour. Impunity is temporary. Impunity hurts because the...

Compensation

Joel 2:25 “‘ *I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten* –the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm–my great army that I sent among you.” I will repay. I will refund. I will compensate. I will reverse your losses. God promises that even though locusts who punish us for rejecting God, have caused a lot of damage…if...

My Yoke Is Easy

He invites all those for whom life is hard, who are stressed, fed up...

Indescribable Gift!

2 Corinthians 9:15 “Thanks be to God for his *indescribable gift* !” Paul writes to Corinthians that God will give you a gift that will cause you to be generous in supporting God’s work. But Paul writes that, this gift from God cannot be expressed by words! The gift can’t be described or explained…why? Because it was more than we thought or imagined. The gift...

Under All Circumstances

Jeremiah 42:6 ” _Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are sending you, so that it will go well with us, for we will obey the LORD our God_ .” Circumstances vary and sometimes it’s convenient to Obey God but sometimes it seems inconvenient to Obey God. Circumstances vary and some are good for success and some are steeped towards...

Rei Kesis

I sit in church or religious class and I struggle to understand what is being taught and preached. I realise a few other people are struggling too. The meeting ends and we are satisfied with having appeared. Somehow in my mind I decide that only a few people can ever learn and understand certain things. But this is not right. I read scholars' articles on very serious issues, the vocabulary is deep, the language is way above the average member of the church. My mind wonders and struggles with, how can this be simplified for everybody? God's word cannot be a preserve of only a few people. So at some point in my life, I resolved that it is my mission to make things simpler that even the least educated and youngest child can understand the word of God. Apart from my love for grey colours, traveling and eating chapati, I have a passion for teaching, preaching and simplifying everything for those I address. My continuous worry, is always, was it simple enough for everybody?
