Text: I am the Lord,who heals you. Exodus 15:26.
If you believe He made you,than He will set you FREE.Sometimes we may wonder when we are sick,then searching for the scriptures,reading devotionals and praying fervently for god to heal me.Then I realise that I should resolve some issues in my life before God can heal me.
I have forgiven those who have hurt me and am working to clear out the "debris"that has been clogging my spiritual life for many years.
Have a blessed…Continue

Are any of you suffering? They should pray.Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. James 5:13
What matters most is not how,when,or where we pray but that we pray.
I confess that prayers is not the strongest of my spiritual disciplines.I am comfortable leading prayers in worship or praying for someone who is ill. It isn't necessary the way we pray that matters or whether we sit,kneel,or stand.It isn't about whether we speak out loud in narrative or make lists,or say…Continue

What is impossible for humans is possible for God. Luke 18:27.
No problem is beyond the redeeming love of God. The Tailevu people must have got their MOTTO from the text above,Vinaka.Since I come to Christ many years ago,I prove that this to be correct and He said that "He will meet your needs according to His riches and glory."
I've witnessed to many Christians and proved to be overwhelming for the redeeming love of God. All-powerful God,you are an awesome God for whom nothing…Continue

Jesus said,"Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7.
How can I share God's love with others ? Sad to say,not all members of our local community approve of what we are doing.In fact,some are quite hostile toward the prisoners because of the wrong they have done.
However,as the Bible reminds us,none of us is free from sin.Through Christ,we know that we have been forgiven,and we want to extend that love and acceptance to…Continue

One does not live by bread alone,but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:3 (NRSV).
God's word provides nourishment for our daily journey.The Bible is like a letter from God to God's people in the world. It explains God's hopes and plans for us;it tells us that we are in God's thoughts and assures us of God's eternal love.It is the lights to our paths,comfort us in despair,and gives us strength.
Have a blessed Day!

Text:"Another said,'I will follow you,Lord;but let me first farewell to those at my home.'Jesus said to him,'No one who puts a hand to the plow and look back is fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke 9:61,62.
A lot of excuses,drawback stress double-minded and people think is too much to serve God or go to church;but it will cost you too much if you don't know God. Along the way,we know he pushed his followers in uncomfortable and profound ways.But Christ is with us every step of the…Continue

Text: One of the lepers,when he saw he was healed,came back,praising God in a loud voice. Luke 17:15 (NIV). Whenever I hear the story of the 10 lepers,I am amazed that only one came back to thank Jesus,where are the rest?Jesus had given them back their lives.Jesus response allowed them to be reunited with their families and to be part of their community again.
I too have been delivered from a horrible disease-sin-that would have left me an outcast just like those lepers.Salvation is…Continue

Text: The psalmist wrote,"When I look at your heavens,the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars that you have established;what are human beings that you are mindful of them,mortals that you for them?"
Psalm 8:3-4. (NRSV). Our God who created this great universe can see from one of its"ends" to the other.Just the other day I saw the news that a modern Telescope have found million other Universe in outer-space.Anyway,God created us and knows everything about each of us-our…Continue

Text: Bless those who persecute you;bless and do not curse them. Romans 12:14.From the Old Testament,"Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth,"Jesus change the Doctrine to,"Love your neighbor and No Violence."Look at Middle East who still carrying out those Laws,are collapsing.Christians must be careful to contain our Law or find ourselves in their same situations.
Sometimes it seems as if every day we encounter a difficult person.We may try to avoid them,complain about them,or comfort…Continue

Text: 'This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth;but thou shall meditate therein day and night,that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:for then thou shall make thy way prosperous;and thou shall have good success." Joshua 1:8.
True that we are given the"Free Will"to live on this earth,but this is the message from the Lord.God who created us knows very well what is good for us and we are reminded daily of His Law.Imagine,Joshua a…Continue

When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon,he said,":The Lord is with you,mighty warrior." Judges 6:12.
When God calls us to a task.God equips us to accomplish it.When God called me 20 years ago,I believe that God will lead me to complete a task and give the ability to accomplish it.My next project is,"On Line Ministry" which will open in June.
I see similarities between my experience and the story of Gideon.God called "mighty warriors" long before Gideon saw himself capable…Continue

Text: How sweet are your words to my taste,sweeter than honey to my mouth. Psalm 119:103.(NIV)
Spending time with God daily makes a good spiritual diet,so as Religion is thirsty for God. Dear Father,thank you for your Holy Word,the Bible.Help us to digest your word and use it as our spiritual source of energy day by day. Amen.

Text: "...Go your way,and tell John what things you have seen and heard;how that the blind see,the lame walk,the lepers are cleansed,the deaf hear,the dead are raised,to the poor the gospel is preached." Luke 7:22. (NIV).
Miracles happened when you have faith in God.I believe that Like's Gospel includes this story to reassure us when our faith wavers and it's human nature to be plagued by uncertainties.Perhaps Jesus knew that believers would need to have their faith bolstered from…Continue

Text: The Lord said to Paul," My power is made perfect in your weakness."2 Cor,12;9 (NIV).
"You can do all things through Christ that strengthen you."The Creator who has the whole world in His hand,who can turn our wrong numbers into opportunities.Often we meet obstacles in our lives and not forgetting that the Lord is with you.
Make this day a special one because God is with you.

Text: The psalmist wrote,"Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil,for you are with me." Psalm 23:4.
My Dad was a RSM,Regimental Sargent Major during the 2nd World War and once told me a story when some Fijian soldiers were surrounded by Japanese.They came to the aid of Rev. Usaia Sotutu. Rev Sotutu told them that he didin't have no gun but the Holy Bible. He read them the same verse," Even though I walk through the darkness,I will fear no evil."Our God…Continue

Text: The Spirit helps us in our weakness;for we do not know how to pray as we ought,but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. Roman 8:26.
In this age of communication - tweets,texts,cams,blogs and status updates - we are rarely speechless.But coming to God during the most difficult times,during the most daunting situations,often leaves us speechless.We are utterly at a loss for what to ask.How do we bring to God our deepest concerns when we cannot find the…Continue

Text: And God said,"Let us make man in our own image,after our likeness,and let them have dominion..." Gen. 1 :26.
When God created everything, it was Good, and gave us the FREE WILL.God endowed people with great freedom and potential,which could be abused as well as used.People rejected God and continue to do so,,which makes them liable to sin,alienation from God,and death,leaving people gravely lost and confused.
Sin basically signifies an offense against God.and…Continue

Text: The lord will fulfill his purpose for me;your steadfast love,O Lord,endures forever.. Psalm 138:8.
King David contributed all His wealth to the building of the temple in Jerusalem.He saw no other mountain bigger than His God and went on to say that,"I'm fearfully and wonderfully made."What else are we living for?Often I fall into the trap of comparing myself to other people.When I look at the impact they seem to have on the world,I feel as if I don't measure up.

Text:: Now upon the first day the week,very early in the morning,they came unto the sepulcher,bringing the spies which they had prepared,and certain others with them.Luke 24:1 The Resurrection is the first day of the week and Christians do celebrate until today.Thanks to the Emperor Constantine who lived 321 CE,and declared that Sunday was to be the day of rest.
Relations between the Jews and Christians was hostile at that time.The early Christians had suffered much persecution from…Continue
text: "Ask and it shall be given to you;seek and he shall find;knock and it shall be opened unto you." Mathew 7:7
Since serving God,I've been touched beyond measure by the power of prayers made to Him.Fervent and continual is to be made on behalf of those for whom we are concerned.God promises to answer all genuine prayer.Everything we need for spiritual success has been promised to us.God leaves us no excuse for failure.
Have a blessed Day !
