Pray

Many of the people I know are praying. One person’s prayer can have great impact. But it must be done in faith. “And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up” (James 5:15). This does not mean that everyone will get healed. For all prayer is answered accordingContinue reading “Pray”

Water is Life!

Recently a friend of mine sent me a devotional. It told of a fellow who worked on a construction crew that built new houses. He connected the water lines to new homes. When they turned on the water, “a once quiet house suddenly seemed alive”. He said, “It amazed me that the house could transformContinue reading “Water is Life!”

Bad Apples

Anyone managing people knows that it’s not an easy thing to do well. I had the blessing of managing for 27 years of my life, although I did not always see it as a blessing at times. God taught me much over those years about myself and about others. Most of the people did theirContinue reading “Bad Apples”

What’s pulling your Train – the Engine or the Caboose?

Often decisions about what is right and what is wrong are defined according to what one feels. Feelings motivate people to do a whole host of things. As a young boy I was hammering on a piece of wood. I hit my thumb. In anger I swung the hammer again and hit my thumb aContinue reading “What’s pulling your Train – the Engine or the Caboose?”

The Majesty of God’s Creation

Every once in a while I have decided to post some pictures of God’s amazing creation. (I’m not a professional photographer and I used my phone.) His creation is intended to impress us with His magnificence and eternal power (Rom. 1:20). Why do we get a sense of awe from seeing a mountain vista orContinue reading “The Majesty of God’s Creation”

How do You Survive a Snakebite?

Few people like snakes. I don’t. So no wonder when God had enough of Israel’s constant complaining He sent serpents among them. They had grumbled about many things in their journey in the wilderness. They had failed to trust God. Now finally the Lord had reached His limitations with their complaining. He sent fiery serpentsContinue reading “How do You Survive a Snakebite?”

Are you Walking in Darkness?

I lived about ten years earlier in life in spiritual darkness. When walking in darkness you live without the influence of spiritual light. I had a relationship with God through faith in Christ, but I lived in darkness for a number of years. If you live in darkness, you have no fellowship with God. WeContinue reading “Are you Walking in Darkness?”

Once a Child; Always a Child?

I often misunderstood the Bible when I failed to distinguish between ‘relationship’ and ‘fellowship’. This can lead to some huge misunderstandings which result in the way you live. If you are a Christian and live in the fear of God’s punishment, you may be making the same error. A relationship with God is established theContinue reading “Once a Child; Always a Child?”
