The psaimist wrote,"Create in me a clean heart,O God,and put a new and right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10.
What an excited message as we wake up another morning and we need this every day.The psalm was written sometimes after David's sin with Bathsheba.The psalm gives expression to why David was a man after God's own heart,he was not perfect;but he had a sensitivity to sin that few know about.David prays for inner renewal and promises and promises thanksgiving.This passage clearly…Continue

Your Children Released From Captivity
by Gloria Copeland
"Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they (your children) shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border" (Jer. 31:16-17).
Jesus has redeemed us from the curse. Many of us have been well taught about that…

Do not judge by appearances,but judge with right judgement. John 7:24. Yunus Brown went to prison for ten years and while in there a friend showed him how to play the game of chess.In the game of chess,before you make a move you must make the right decision.We falter in life because we make the wrong move or decisions.
We must acknowledge God of any issues befor we jump to any conclusions. Have a blessed Day !

You Have the Power to Say No
“So, dear brothers, you have no obligation anymore to your old sinful nature to do what it begs you to do.” Romans 8:12 (LB)
Each of us was given grace according to the measure of Christ's gift.Ephesians 4:7. (NRSV).
The biggest question,"Where do we come from,what are we doing here and where are we going to?" The answer is all in the Bible and our spiritual growth can be something like the growth of plants.As believers,we each have a measure of grace and have been blessed by God.But each of us relates to God differently,our growth in the Christian life can be very different.Some of us remain the same for…Continue

Lord you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Psalm 90:1 (NIV).
When someone asks our sons where they are from,they have no quick and simple answer.This is because their father's career sent them packing to Australia,Hawaii,England and California.We really have no place we can call our hometown.
Society seems more transient than ever with continual changes in location,careers,health and financial circumstances.Few people manage to live long without enduring…Continue

The Lord said to Moses,"Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to go forward." Exodus 14:15 (NRSV).
The Israelites found themselves in a similarly difficult position (Exodus 14).While fleeing from Egypt,the Israelites were caught between the pursuing Egyptians and the Red Sea. Moses believed in the deliverance of God and exhorted the people to take courage,be silent,do nothing and see the salvation of God.But God told Moses to stop talking and go forward;and when they went…Continue

Jesus said,"What woman having ten silver coins,if she loses one of them,does not light a lamp,sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? Luke 15:8.
What does it mean to be happy? Blessing,fortunate,contant,pleased,joy and plentiful living.I'm experiencing just that and wish that I could have that earlier in life but would like to contain it.Jesus teaches that he will never grow tired or frustrated with us.And when we wander off,he will patiently sweep the corners of our…Continue

We have toiled under the same sun, drank from the same rain ,swam in the same river, fish from the same waters, and share the same land.
We have shown seeds of love and patience on each other from the cradle and some have move on to the grave, but they have passed the baton on to us to continue the journey of co-existence though maintaining our differences in races and beliefs. We have done well, though at times anger of racism and religious theme swells up, but always put to rest…

And they said among themselves,Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulcher? Mark 16:3.
Imagine it was about 3 in the morning,only the ladies when the men were still asleep. Have the women discovered that the tomb is already open ? Has the question been answered ? But the question tugs at me as I examine the work of a woman in ancient medium telling an event more ancient story,"Who will roll away the stone ?"
Last Saturday my wife's young sister buried a…Continue

The Lord said to Gideon,"Peace! Do not be afraid.You are not going to die." Judges 6:23 (NIV).
Fear is a powerful emotion that affects heart rates,thoughts and actions.Even as adults,we struggle against fears as big as death,as small as spiders or snakes.God reminds us that we have the responsibility and power not to be affected by fears.If we focus in God like Gideon,we will find peace even in the midst of the battle.

It is by grace you have been saved,through faith and this not from yourselves,it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8 (NIV).
Everyone is looking forward for today in Fiji,the election and celebrating the release of our soldiers at Golan Heights.Everyone is looking for credit but Paul said that through Faith and by Grace of God.
