    Live the blessed life

    June 14, 2017

    Psalms 67:7
    Pray for his blessings to continue and for everyone on earth to worship our God.



    Live the blessed life

    We all probably heard or read about how God desires to bless His children - His plans to prosper and not to harm; His promise to let us live our lives to its fullest. While the obvious theme is to reward God's faithful, this design for blessing has its other objectives as well.

    God wants other people to see how we have been so blessed that they too will eventually come, believe and worship the one, true God. He wants to draw all men unto Him and He will use us to achieve this purpose.

    Has God been good to you lately? Shout it out loud. Post in your walls. Tell your friends and family. God deserves to be worshipped through our

    Generation to generation

    June 16, 2017


    Psalms 71:17-18
    You have taught me since I was a child, and I never stop telling about your marvelous deeds. Don't leave me when I am old and my hair turns gray. Let me tell future generations about your mighty power.


    Generation to generation


    King David grew up knowing God's greatness. The Lord's protection and salvation are all too familiar to this young king. He knew he can fully rely on God to see him through any and all trials and difficulties.

    The same great God remains faithful to His children to this day. Our children and their children need to see and hear of His greatness through our lives and our testimony. We are tasked to make sure this faith is passed on to the next generation.

    Father, as David prayed in commitment to proclaim your power to the generations to come, help us also to fulfill this mission of passing our faith on to our children and theirs.

    Dependence on God

    June 18, .2017

    Psalms 72:1
    Please help the king to be honest and fair just like you, our God.



    Dependence on God

    As the leader of his nation, David knew he had to be a lot of things to his people. He had to be fair. He had to be just. He needed to be kind. Protective. Providing. He needed to be perfect in the eyes of his people.

    The king knew it was not an easy task. He needed the help of our Lord to enable him to live up to the expectations. His standard of leadership was to be like God - leading according to His statutes and principles.

    Ask God today to bring you up to the position or task that is ahead of you. Depend only on Him for guidance and help.

    When all else fails

    June 19, 2017

    Psalms 73:26
    My body and mind may fail, but you are my strength and my choice forever.



    When all else fails

    Reading chapter 73 felt like looking one's self in a mirror. David started out with his envy of the rich who rely solely on their wealth. It was only after his encounter at the holy temple that God made him realize who his true source of strength is.

    Many times our bodies, our minds may fail. We may find ourselves defeated at times. We lose our hope to fight and survive. We fail to look beyond the realm of the physical and the limited. We fail to see God. In the end David said "there is nothing on earth I desire beside You."

    Where do we put our hearts and minds and our dependence on? When all else fails, where do we go? Look up to heaven and see our hope in the God who lives and loves.

    God's judgment

    June 26, 2017

    Psalms 75:7
    but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.



    God's judgment

    David knew ultimately who puts people to positions of power and authority. While he had questions related to fairness and injustice, he acknowledged who put them there. At the end of it all, we cannot hold on to anything if not for the provision of the Almighty God.

    When we see the things we've done and all we have amassed in this world, we should not claim full credit. Remembering the One who has given it to us and blessed us puts us in the right perspective.

    Honor the Giver with what He has given you. It's by God's judgment that we have received. In a blink of an eye the Lord can take these away if He so desires.

    Remember God's goodness

    June 27, 2017

    Psalms 77:11-12
    Our Lord, I will remember the things you have done, your miracles of long ago. I will think about each one of your mighty deeds.



    Remember God's goodness

    A formula to ensure lasting faith in God is a good memory. David knew times would have changed. Seasons of harvest and plenty will eventually be replaced with difficulties and trouble. But even before he fell into the doubt trap, he reminded himself of God's greatness through the miracles of the past.

    Our lives are filled with a series of ups and downs. The once easy and comfortable living can change in an instant. All it takes is a major catastrophe. When we fall into pits of despair, think like David. Remember all the good He's done for you.

    How you view God today and tomorrow largely depends on how good you remember His blessings upon your life.

    God's anger

    June 28, 2017

    Psalms 78:38
    Yet God was kind. He kept forgiving their sins and didn't destroy them. He often became angry, but never lost his temper.



    God's anger

    When we look at how the Bible described Israel's relationship with the Lord Almighty over the generations, we see a repeating pattern. God blesses His people. They disobey. They get punished. Then God comes to their aid again but they stray away.

    In all these, God has remained kind. He kept on forgiving even if the people refused to obey. The verse in Psalms said He often got angry but He restrained Himself. Same goes for us today. We keep on sinning, but God is always ready to forgive.

    Come to the Lord with a repentant heart. Know that His love is greater than our sins and His anger for them.

    Burdens are lifted

    June 29, 2017

    Psalms 81:6
    “I lifted the burden from your shoulder and took the heavy basket from your hands.



    Burdens are lifted

    It's always a good feeling when burdens are lifted from your shoulders. Heavy weights pull us down. It slows down our progression and on some occasions caused us to quit. When we carry a heavy load, our full attention is centered on it that it makes all the other experiences vanish.

    The Lord has promised to lift up our burdens. He desires and designed an easy life for His people if we let Him carry our burdens for us. But lifting our burdens also entail trust.

    Do you trust God to take care of your heavy loads?

    Better than a thousand days

    July 10, 2017

    Psalms 84:10
    One day in your temple is better than a thousand anywhere else. I would rather serve in your house, than live in the homes of the wicked.



    Better than a thousand days


    Nothing could ever compare to a day in the Lord's presence. Once a person experiences pure joy in an intimate walk with God, no amount of earthly riches or entertainment can live up to it.

    David knew God and he enjoyed His protection and closeness. However, he also experienced separation from Him when sin entered his life. He was miserable. He longed tp go back into the Lord's loving arms.

    Life away from God is not living even if you live to enjoy a lifetime of earthly pleasure. Seek God and know Him today. Experience the true joy that comes with a growing relationship with Him.

    I will tell

    September 3, 2017

    Psalms 89:2
    I will tell them, “God's love can always be trusted, and his faithfulness lasts as long as the heavens.”



    I will tell

    Here in this verse, David declares his confidence in the Lord Almighty. To the yet to be born he has committed to proclaim how trustworthy He is because of His great love and faithfulness. What he believes, he will tell.

    God blesses us because of His love. But when we speak of it to the people around us, we also spread both faith and devotion to our God. To the already believer, a faith enhancer. To the unbelieving, it's an open invitation to trust in God.

    When was the last time we proclaimed God's love and faithfulness in our lives? Do we tell everyone what God has done?
