Life Challenges : 4 Biblical pathways to solutions

Romans 15:4 (KJV)  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. I am having so much difficulty, someone says. My life is full of challenges, another declared. Why me oh God? A very familiar question, we all ask. When will this be over, we often protest. If God is truly there, why all these evil things happening, another question. And the list goes on-and-on of…

Don’t give up. God is still with you

Galatians 6:9 (KJV)  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. There are many things we are daily confronted with, many of which we lack the resources to effectively handle. They become objects of deep concern for us. Our family dynamics; financials; friendships and relationship concerns; career and professional challenges; spiritual and often personal life challenges that are too personal to even share with anyone else. Life sometimes comes…

You can TRUST God’s promises

Isaiah 40:28-31 (KJV) Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. What we know determines how we approach things or people. The Bible takes time to reveal and explain the personality of God. It does so with the intent that we may come to a full realization and understanding of the majesty and splendor of…

Love As Christ Loves

1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. It is not a surprise that God placed the greatest value on Love. Because love is not only the nature of God but it is the very essence of God. He is Love and all He does stems from Love. His actions toward you are based on Love. The sacrifice of Jesus is an act of Love. Paul was addressing a church…

The power of gratitude

Psalm 98 (KJV) 98 O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. 2 The Lord hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. The psalmist understood the need to be grateful and the power of gratitude in life, especially when it comes to the works of God in the lives of His people. As we start a new calendar…

God is the Source of your HOPE & JOY

Romans 15:13 (KJV) Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. There are many benefits of knowing Christ and having a living relationship with Him. Life without God and that is not Cross Centered is very challenging to say the least.  But when we come to Christ and understand the provisions of the Cross our perceptions and perspectives changes thereby impacting our…

The Blessing is in God, and God alone

Psalm 121:1 (KJV) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Expectation influences hope and the source of your expectation fuels your faith. The psalmist was a man of uncommon character and understanding. He knew by the Holy Spirit the importance of developing an expectation that is anchored on God and God alone.  Though,  God uses people but when our hope and faith are placed on mere men, we have often been disappointed. In Palestine…

God has better plans for you.

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. When we read the Bible without historical context, we often don’t appreciate the relevance and importance of the text. Jeremiah’s prophetic ministry covered from the siege of Jerusalem to its fall and captivity. So as of the time this chapter is being written, the fall and captivity has taken place. The…

Why God Inspired THE BIBLE?

2 Timothy 3:16-17 King James Version (KJV) 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. The source of information is very critical because if the source is falsehood, then decisions made by such information will lead to negative consequences and if the source is Truth, then actions and decisions taken will be positive and…

Focus On Your Heavenly Reward

2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. The idea of future Reward is a huge motivator for humans.  We do things not only because there is an immediate reward but also because there is a “Future Reward”.  You work had for a good retirement, pension, or…

Prayer is a Lifestyle

1 Thessalonians 5:17-19 (KJV) Pray without ceasing. Paul a man who understood the pain of persecution,  betrayal, and suffering because of his faith in Christ writes by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the church at Thessalonian and implored them to apply three great keys of the Kingdom on their daily lives. 1. He said – Always Be Joyful.  You see Joy is of God and a fruit of the Holy Spirit.  It is more than a disposition that…

The Greatest of these is LOVE.

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. The Bible presents us with Truth.  The Foundation of living is based on Truth.  The above scripture underscores three foundations for successful living:  Hope, Faith, and Love. Hope is the anchor of life. It sustains you amidst Trails.  It is what keeps your Faith alive as the Bible speaks of Abraham in Roman 4 that He hoped against Hope and His Faith…
