Life Meets Death

Jesus goes into the town of Nain and as He goes in with His disciples and a crowd around Him, another crowd comes out carrying the dead body of a young man, the only son of his mother, a widow, crying along. Jesus sees this crowd at the gate of the town, is moved with compassion, touches the coffin and raises this dead man back to life! ­ Death met Life and that which was dead was raised back to life! This is what we read in Luke 7:7-11,

Out Of A Horrible Pit

Psalm 40 is a Psalm of David and in verse 2 in this Psalm he speaks of the horrible pit he was in. God’s promise was that he would be on the throne of Israel but David found himself in a horrible pit! In Psalm 40 : 1 – 4 David said,

1 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me,
         And heard my cry. 2 He also brought meup out of a horrible pit,

One Word From God

God is with us and He fights our enemies, who rise up against us, and keeps us safe. But when we do not obey His voice and do what is evil in His sight, He will take His protective hand away from our lives and will deliver us into the hand of the enemies, so that we come back to him, and do all that He wants us to. Certain things are not evil in our own sight or in the sight of others, but if it does not please God and if something is not right in His eyes, then He will judge us that we may repent and turn back to Him. In Judges 6:1-10 we read,

In His Time

The word of God is clear, ‘To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven’. We like to do things when we think it is the right time and we like to see things finished when we think it is time. We have our own season and time for everything under heaven but God has His! We may be in a hurry but God is not and never will be. We get disappointed when things don’t work out within our time frame, but we need to understand that nothing is in our hands and God is not compelled to move within our time frame. He is God. He never changes. He will not change His time because we have our time limit. He will not change even if we fast and pray! He may let us have some things if we push too much for it, but that will only cause us trouble, pain and destruction. Ecclesiastes 3 :1-8, 11 says,

Dealing With Loneliness

We all look for someone to really love us, for someone to accept us as we are, to understand us, to care for us. No matter how much some of us may deny it, deep inside that's what we all long for – love, acceptance, understanding, care. But very often it just remains a dream, a desire. And in a world with seven billion people you find yourself alone and lonely.

No one seems to have the time for you. No one seems to notice you. People just pass you by as though you do not exist. Sometimes even the closest people – your parents, your husband / wife, your children – are so busy with everyday life and work that they seem to be ignoring you. And you have this question in your heart, 'Do they really love me, do they really care?' May be you've walked such a lonely journey through this life that life itself seems uninteresting to you.

Dealing With Guilt

There are things in the past in almost all of our lives that we wish never happened or things that we wish we never had done; things that we would like to change and re-write if we had a chance to go back to our past. There are many things that leave a hurt, a wound or an unpleasant memory inside our hearts and minds that keeps coming back to haunt us as if it had just happened yesterday. Some things that leave a bad memory could be our own doing – wrongdoing, failures, wrong decisions - while some other things could be someone else’s doing – abuse, insults, hurts; but either way it leaves a trail of guilt, shame and a sense of defeat. And thinking of those events might leave us sad and depressed. It might also cause us to live in unforgiveness: towards ourselves, towards others or towards both.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth…(1 Cor 13:4-6)

He (JESUS) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed'. (Isaiah 53:5)
