Dan 10v12 – God already heard you

Do you sometimes pray and pray, and God doesn’t seem to hear? It would be amazing if we could peek into Heaven and see if God is actually listening. Daniel saw something that troubled him so much that he fasted and prayed for three weeks. No answer. But then we get a glimpse into heaven… Continue reading Dan 10v12 – God already heard you

1Pe 4v7-8 – The end of the world

Jesus’ disciples asked him what it would be like in the last days before he returned. He said there would be “wars and rumours of wars…Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places” (Matthew 24:6-7). This is a picture of our world today! But more… Continue reading 1Pe 4v7-8 – The end of the world

Psa 27v14 – The waiting gap

I’m not very good at waiting. There’s a certain acceptable time, and then the waiting should be over. But while we might get exasperated with waiting for the ordinary things of life, what about waiting for God? We have asked God to help us – we have prayed for something, and still, we are waiting.… Continue reading Psa 27v14 – The waiting gap

Deu 1v31 – Miracle moments

Having experienced a terrible flood, the new day means light and our best opportunity to escape. After a long walk in the rain and wind carrying a few clothes and two small dogs we arrive at a road. However, a raging river has ripped the road apart, separating us from our destination. With shivering, wet… Continue reading Deu 1v31 – Miracle moments

Heb 10v24-25 – The budget

Have you ever drawn up a personal budget? While it is a basic concept of income less expenses, expenses must also be divided into discretionary (optional) vs non-discretionary (necessary) spending. Identifying which costs fall into each category is interesting as it makes you consider what is essential. Are donations discretionary or non-discretionary? What about your… Continue reading Heb 10v24-25 – The budget

Luk 11v13 – Answered prayer

We were visiting Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia. My daughter’s boyfriend had never seen a lion in the wild. I prayed to God that if it was his will, could he please lead us to see a lion. We were on our final day, heading toward the gate, and we still hadn’t seen any lions.… Continue reading Luk 11v13 – Answered prayer

Psa 13v5-6 – No reply

Have you experienced being “blue ticked”? It’s when you send someone a message on WhatsApp, and it gets two blue ticks that indicate it has been delivered and read, but there is no reply. It can be really frustrating if you are waiting for an answer. It feels like the person is simply ignoring you… Continue reading Psa 13v5-6 – No reply

Rom 10v13 – Crying out

While travelling through Turkey, there is one thing you can’t miss. Every day, a loud call is broadcasted across the city five times throughout the day. It serves as a reminder for everyone to engage in prayer. It started as early as 3:30 am, which caused me to wake up a few times. It may… Continue reading Rom 10v13 – Crying out

Luk 22v39 – As usual

Would you rather prepare a meal for 100 people for one day or for one person for 100 days? While the meal for so many at once is a challenge, most would choose that because it’s a big effort once rather than a long commitment. One-offs are a lot easier than long commitments. And this… Continue reading Luk 22v39 – As usual

Eph 5v15-16 – Sacred time

What is the most precious thing you have? There could be a variety of answers – my gran’s diamond ring, my family, my dog. But there is one other thing more precious that every person has – and that is time. Without time the things we consider precious have no meaning because we can’t be… Continue reading Eph 5v15-16 – Sacred time
