Me first

Today I want you to be selfish in one area only. That is in seeking God for forgiveness. Did you know when we seek God for forgiveness, it opens the door for others to see they can be forgiven too? One by one as others seek forgiveness, it opens the door for the community to see forgiveness. But it all starts with us seeking it first. Will it start with you? … More Me first

Fighting for your family’

Sometimes in life God positions us in situations where we need to make a choice. We may be standing waiting to be invited to a special group at Church or we may be wanting a promotion at work. David faces this same situation in the Bible. Him and his men wanted to join the Philistine army to fight against the Israelites. David knew he could control the battle if he went. But God had a different battle for him to fight. Although David got offended, he submitted to authority and a bigger battle was won.

Don’t throw out the old

When you organise do you throw out the old in order to get something new. God loves to give us something new – new revelation from Him, a new perspective on life, seeing people in a new loving way. However, God doesn’t want us to throw out the old in order to get the new. God wants us to retain our foundation and build on it.

Time to cross the bridge

I saw a painting whilst on holidays with a bridge in it. As the lady was telling me what the painting would remind me of, the words it is time to cross the bridge resounded within me. God is speaking to some of us telling us that the time has come for us to cross the bridge. Behind us is the wilderness – a place of provision and obedience but up ahead is the promise from God. It is time to move. … More Time to cross the bridge
