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

Isa 46v9-10 – Know The future

I might not be able to tell the future, but I know the future, and that has made all the difference. No human being can tell the future, as there is only one who is outside of time, and that is God. He alone knows and determines what happens in the future. “Remember the things… Continue reading Isa 46v9-10 – Know The future

Heb 11v1 – Scary water

The pool is a dark ochre red as we reach the waterfall at the end of our walk. We are hot, and a dip in the cool water would be amazing. However, the dark, ominous-looking water conceals what lurks below. However, for us, the refreshing invitation is greater than the fear of the unknown, and… Continue reading Heb 11v1 – Scary water

Psa 62v8 – Trust God always

Do you trust God? Most Christians would answer, “Yes”. Do you trust God at all times? Now, this may be harder to answer. When life is going well, we can quickly begin to trust our bank balance or, our health or our intellect. God isn’t forgotten; it’s just we don’t need him now. But what… Continue reading Psa 62v8 – Trust God always

Psa 91v2 – Amazing Flying

I’m flying, and the pilot comes on and says we are travelling 10km high up in the sky at 1000 km/ h. Outside, the temperature is -30c. Yet here I sit writing this gospel bite, totally comfortable. It’s crazy. It’s only because I’m encased in this metal flying bird that this is possible. Outside the… Continue reading Psa 91v2 – Amazing Flying

Heb 11v6 – Complete faith

I am seated in a plane and about to take off. It is a metal box with two metal arms protruding from either side. I’m not exactly sure how this piece of technology can lift me 30,000 feet above sea level. But I have faith that it will bring me to my final destination. This… Continue reading Heb 11v6 – Complete faith

Psa 22v21-22 – The unwritten space

There is nothing more amazing than seeing someone totally transform for good. Sometimes, we see the process, but other times, the process is unseen. All we see is the remarkable change. In Psalm 22, David writes a beautiful psalm that is firstly a prophecy of Messiah (Matthew 27:46) but also David’s life’s struggles. The first… Continue reading Psa 22v21-22 – The unwritten space

Mat 8v24 – Sleeping in a storm

Awakening in the dark to find water knee-deep around your bed is very scary. With torrential rain outside, no way of escape and the possibility of the river bursting its banks, there is real danger. I sit with an emergency lamp on, watching the water slowly rising and listening to the downpour. Fear, despair, and… Continue reading Mat 8v24 – Sleeping in a storm

Phi 4v19 – The GAP

The gap, it’s the worst thing. The gap between problem and solution. The gap between the known and the unknown. The gap between today and tomorrow. In life, there is always some gap that we stand at the edge of. Will they get well? Where will the money come from? Will I be safe? Will… Continue reading Phi 4v19 – The GAP

1Co 4v20 – Do you really believe?

I recently listened to a well-known podcast speaker explaining why he never wanted to claim to believe in God because believing means acting. He felt he could never act and live like belief in God requires, and only Jesus could truly claim belief. At one level, what he said is correct. Claiming to believe something… Continue reading 1Co 4v20 – Do you really believe?
