    God of justice

    March 26, 2017

    Psalms 58:10-11
    Good people will be glad when they see the wicked getting what they deserve, and they will wash their feet in their enemies' blood. Everyone will say, “It's true! Good people are rewarded. God does indeed rule the earth with justice.”



    God of justice

    In the many characters of God, love stands out as one most of us are too familiar with. However, the Bible also reveals that He is a just God. Unforgiven sin will be punished in the end. Only Christ's death can save us from the penalty of sin.

    We may all grieve about how the wicked seem to get away with their corruption and greed. In the end, they will bear the consequences of what they did on earth. We, the righteous will rejoice when our heavenly Judge rewards us in eternity.

    The God of justice offers a way out of our sin and punishment. Jesus paid the price on the cross of Calvary.

    And You love me

    March 27, 2017

    Psalms 59:16-17
    But I will sing about your strength, my God, and I will celebrate because of your love. You are my fortress, my place of protection in times of trouble. I will sing your praises! You are my mighty fortress, and you love me.



    And You love me

    We find hundreds, thousands, even millions of reasons to celebrate and sing of the Lord our God. We are in awe of His strenth and power. He is a fortress and refuge for those in trouble; and an ever present help. Most of all, He loves us.

    God loves you and me. He has our best planned ahead for us. He will not let His children suffer the shame and ridicule of those surrounding us. As a father loves his baby, so does our heavenly Father care for us always.

    We can always celebrate and praise Him because of His love - His constant and unending love.

    Under Your wings

    March 28, 2017

    Psalms 61:4
    Let me live with you forever and find protection under your wings, my God.



    Under Your wings

    A lot of people go by the belief that God does not exist. Looking at all the troubles, the injustice, the poverty makes people turn their back from the promise and existence of a loving and caring God. Why do people experience hardship and difficulty?

    In David's prayer, he pleaded for God to let him live under His protection and care. This state of security can only be attained if we stay under the shadow of God's wings. Staying​ under His care requires us to also abide by His guidelines and principles.

    God will protect us only if we let Him do it. If we stray too far away from Him, we remove His blanket of care.

    Inner peace

    March 29, 2017

    Psalms 62:5
    Only God gives inward peace, and I depend on him.



    Inner peace

    There was once a competition to create an image showing peace. The winner drew a tiny bird resting firmly on its nest on a stormy afternoon, safe under the care of a strong and mighty tree.

    Peace could be achieved externally through the absence of conflict. However, true peace is achieved when we can remain calm amidst troubles and persecution. This peace can only be achieved if we rely on someone great who we know is ultimately in control.

    Trust in a mighty God. Depend on Him. Only then will we really find inner and lasting peace.

    It's your choice

    April 3, 2017

    Psalms 62:8, 10
    Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each of your concerns. God is our place of safety.
    Don't trust in violence or depend on dishonesty or rely on great wealth.



    It's your choice

    Two verses offer us who to trust. We cannot choose both. It's either we put our confidence on the wealth we have been given or we can instead look to the One who, in the first place gifted us with the same. It's your choice.

    God has always offered His protection, care and love. Many times we disappoint Him when we turn our backs on Him but He is always just waiting for us to run towards Him in trust and love.

    It's always been our choice. As we evaluate our hearts today, where does our confidence fall upon?

    The Caretaker

    April 6, 2017

    Psalms 65:9-10
    You take care of the earth and send rain to help the soil grow all kinds of crops. Your rivers never run dry, and you prepare the earth to produce abundant grain. You water all its fields and level the lumpy ground. You send showers of rain to soften the soil and help the plants sprout.



    The Caretaker

    When we see the world around us and marvel at how the earth is sustained alongside all its inhabitants, our attention is drawn upon the great Creator and Caretaker. While many argue that the planet sustains itself naturally, our faith and an obvious reality reveals a power so great, it has kept everything in its proper place.

    Many new beliefs and teachings try to disprove the existence of a great One. Men have tried, in our limited knowledge, to understand and explain Someone far greater than reason may hold. Rejecting the concept of faith they resort to philosophy and science.

    But if we really just pause for a moment, it will not be difficult to see the hand of God in every being. Trust in Him. He is there.

    Nothing but the best

    April 17, 2017

    Psalms 66:15
    I will sacrifice my best sheep and offer bulls and goats on your altar.



    Nothing but the best

    Sacrifices unto God in the past meant offering animals upon the altar where He was worshipped. David recognized this and as a commitment he offered nothing but the best he had. He never gave the ones he didn't see fit to match the greatness of the Lord.

    Today sacrifices unto God no longer come in the form of animals and livestock. We offer sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving​ in all that we do. The question we now must answer is are we giving the best there is for us to give?

    Whether it be financial offerings, our time and our talents, make sure we give nothing but our best, not what's left for us to comfortably give.

    Treated with Kindness

    April 18, 2017



    Psalms 68:19-20
    We praise you, Lord God! You treat us with kindness day after day, and you rescue us. You always protect us and save us from death.



    Treated with Kindness

    David found dozens of reasons to continue praising God Almighty. Among them was in response to how His kindness was consistently poured upon His servant, the king. David, was treated with Kindness, and for that God deserves his praise and adoration.

    Today, the respect accorded upon us depends mostly on what we have achieved in this life. Some treat you nicely because of what you have, or what you wear. God is not like that. No matter who we are and what we have achieved, He is ready to daily treat us with kindness and love.

    Have you been mistreated lately? Do you feel rejected? Come to God. He is ready to show kindness and protection day after day.

    A life that encourages

    May 8, 2017

    Psalms 69:6
    Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me, O Lord God of hosts; let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel.



    A life that encourages

    King David knew all along how his life impacts the other believers in God's family. His prayer for personal success stems from a heart that desires to encourage those who trust in God. Known as the servant of the Lord, his failure will shame everyone else who serves Him.

    As we go on our different roles in life, at work, or in school we need to understand that people around us watch and observe. This should give us reason enough to work for success and perfection. Our life is a testimony of God's grace and faithfulness. We paint a picture of the invisible God through what we do.

    May our hearts be like that of David who bears the burden to succeed not for self gain but to give glory to the One who enables us to achieve.

    Nowhere to run

    May 21, 2017

    Psalms 70:5
    I am poor and needy, but you, the Lord God, care about me. You are the one who saves me. Please hurry and help!



    Nowhere to run

    Surrounded by threats and enemies, king David knew he had a God who will rescue him and he put his trust in that. Despite all his wealth and his position of power he humbly aligned his position with that of the poor and the needy.

    Letting go of things we cling on to for survival and rest on the power and ability of our Lord God paves the way for complete and humble trust in all He is. God's power is made manifest when we have nowhere to run but to Him.

    When trouble comes or a need arises, where do we run for protection and guidance?
