Small but mighty

Sometimes we look at circumstances surrounding our lives and think they can never be defeated. We look at the reputation of that circumstance and how others have succumbed to it. We can also look at ourselves and in the natural we look smaller than those big circumstances. But just like the Israelites defeated Ai, we can defeat those circumstances. But only when we get God involved. We are small in the world but mighty in God, exactly the opposite of Ai.

Perspective

Perspective is a funny thing. Often our perspective on situations and things relies on our past experiences. But it is also controlled by our attitude.

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

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. Read more about how you do this and what we should retain. … More Don’t throw out the old

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
