Light in Times of Darkness

“Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.” Psalms 112:4 Every believer must accept that there will be times when dark clouds of affliction will cover your path. At first GOD is such glorious reality to you and joy floods your life, but the clouds of despondency will soon appear. When that happens, it is essential to reestablish the truth that GOD is unchanging; His love for you is exactly what it has always been. You may find the darkness hard to accept and GOD may seem far off, but hold on...

A Life Based on Trust

“I have learnt to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.” Philippians 4:11-12 As a follower of Christ you have powers at your disposal that enable you to tackle life positively and constructively. Remember that dynamic discipleship is based on faith that finds expression in deeds, not in feelings. Focus on the fact that GOD loves you, even though you might be experiencing the darkest time of your life. Acknowledge the fact that He will never leave you, even though you may not be...

Surrender Your Life to God

“Lord, teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1 Most Christians are very aware of their inability to pray according to the will of God. Christ sacrificed Himself for us. He gave Himself freely, but He will enrich your life only as far as you allow Him to. The depth and quality of your devotion to Him will be reflected in the strength of your prayer life. It does not mean a thing to ask God for a meaningful and positive prayer life unless you do your share to develop it. If you surrender yourself more completely to Christ, you will become...

An Effective Prayer Life

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” Philippians 4:6 Of all the Christian disciplines, prayer is the most commonly practiced and the least understood. Prayer should not be regarded as a life jacket in desperate times or as wish list. We begin by establishing a relationship of prayer with God. Develop an understanding of living Christ, study His word and meditate on His presence. Thank and praise God for the privilege of prayer, and then cast all your cares, fears, problems and requests on Him and ask...

The Power of God’s Love

“People will oppress each other – man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.” Isaiah 3:5 In today’s world it seems as if chaos and anarchy rule in every corner. However, this doesn’t mean we need to tolerate the situation. In Christ Jesus, God came to fight against evil. He did this with the only weapon effective enough to overcome the forces of darkness. And it is just as powerful today – godly love. God continues to spread His love over His children and it is the Christian’s privilege...
