Another week, another tragedy in the UK. When will it end?

We just seem to be hearing about one terrible situation after another these days. No wonder many are asking ‘why’, and questioning where God is in all of this.

God is still here, and He is still there for us. However in a world where people are killing others because of misguided beliefs, and horrendous accidents/tragedies are happening all too frequently, we must still seek God, because He alone can get us through these dark times.

We can seek healing for many things: physical illness or injury, spiritual brokenness, emotional frailty etc. But do we seek healing from the correct source?

No matter what part of our life is in need of healing, if we ask God to help us, He will reach out to us and helps, and heals us.

So reach out to God today, and He will heal you of all your ills, physical, emotional or spiritual. Just trust Him.

In these days when it seems darkness is taking over the world, there is still hope, because God is still here. And with His help, we can get God’s love shining strongly throughout the world.

Don’t let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good ~ Romans 12:21 (The Message)

 

Sometimes all we need are some words of encouragement, so here’s some encouraging words from J. I. Packer:

The stars may fall, but God’s promises will stand and be fulfilled.

It’s true isn’t, that no matter what may happen in life, God remains the same, forever faithful.

What better encouragement could we have!

When you’re not sure what t do, or are looking for direction in your life, who do you turn to?

We can find the answer to that question in the book of James (1:5)

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it.

God is understanding and receptive to your prayers. So believe in Him, have faith that He can and will give you the guidance and help you need.

Recharging #7

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by recapturing your:

  • faith in Christ

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. ~ Romans 10:17 (NIV)

  • love of Christ

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.hope in Christ ~ John 14:23 (NIV)

  • hope in Christ

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. ~ Romans 15:4 (NIV)

 

In a world where all we seem to hear about on the news these days is conflicts, acts of terrorism, hate crimes, murders etc, it’s reassuring to know that there is a way for the world to be in a peaceful place to life.

Anything under God’s control is never out of control ~ Charles R. Swindoll

The world needs God more than ever these days. It’s therefore down to us to tell those we that there is hope, because God is here for them.

 

Easter weekend and the associated celebrations are over, so does that mean Easter is over, we can stop celebrating Christ until Christmas comes round again?

We definitely should not stop celebrating Christ just because Easter is over. After all Christ paid for our sins by giving his life, so how can we ever repay him? We will never manage to repay him for giving himself for us, but we can everything Easter is really about is just as true today and everyday, as it was during the celebrations.

 

Seeking solace in his downturned eyes,
such agonising pain betraying,
Hiding heartache through their stifled cries,
with wordless weeping, silent praying,
Beneath the bloodied,
wretched wraith,
faithful friends,
constrained or driven,
keep their vigil,
hold hard to faith,
and hear his whispered word:
Forgiven
by Stephen Pearson

Christ thought of us as he gave his life for us, so let’s make sure we think of him each and every day of the year. Let’s think of others who don’t know Him, and bring them to Him.

If ever we need a reminder that God has promised to love us always, we can find it in Deuteronomy 7:9 (NIV)

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.

The question is, are you repaying God’s faith in you by loving Him?

Have faith
