What do you do, when God is silent? Can you accept it? Will you listen to Him? His silence is not lack of care, but is leading us back to the things we learned earlier on. (Psa 85:10 (11), 119:18, Mt 6:7, Lk 2:40, Jn 14:1)
Man cannot produce the work of God and He will show it to us that we cannot
(Zac 4:6; Jn 6:63)
Believers, non-believers, good people, bad people… we all face with worried. There are situations that we cannot control…it is impossible. And then there is no peace. Worries can rob our lives. But there is a good ending!
(Psa 37:1,7-8, 127:2; Prov 24:19; Mt 2:3; Mrk 9:10; Jn 10:28-29; Acts 2:12; Heb 2:15)
It’s interesting that in the Western world where there is internet and smart phones everywhere – and we see this happening in the world – that people become lonelier and lonelier. The reason of this is that they have less and less living connection with people. The internet gives you the sense of connection, you feel like connected but actually there is no connection there. Because real connection happens face to face, between person to person, in the other’s personal presence. Where do you start?
(Jn 15:1-9; Mat 6:5-8, 14:23; 1 Cor 12:27)
What happened with the consciousness of people? Our desire is to have peace with God. How were we in fellowship with Him in the different dispensations? Now we live under grace that says – be perfect! Is it possible?
(Prov 6:16-19; Psalm 85:7,10; Isa 59:7,11-14; Rom 5:1)
Our world overloads us, and as a result we have dissatisfaction and stress. We may form defenses against incoming information, or we may fight against it. The other option is to trust in God, and learn to have an expectation of Him. (Phil 4:11, 1Tim 6:6) David was confident he will overcome Goliath because he…
The believer is complete in Christ, as Christ is accepted before God the Father. Our relationships in the Body of Christ are built on that. (Phil 1:17-18) Death has been overcome. That, which Christ accomplished on the cross has nothing to add to it, and may not be taken away from. He promised and gave…
Thoughts about image and mirror image, care, joy, peace, heaven and resurrection.
Looking for happiness? For the one you think you need or for the one you actually do need? The latter one can be found with God. (Jo 8:31-38) Why ought I heed Jesus? What is His counsel? (Rev 3:18, Isa 9:6, Ro 11:33, Jo 7:37, 12:24, 14:27, Pro 12:1(3))
Our world has a few fundamental messages for these days. One of them is fear. Psalm 37 – a whole lifetime’s exhortations against worry. (Psalm 37:1-7,25,27,34,37, 1Pe 1:23, 2Cor 5:7, Psa 73:18-19, 1Cor 3:10-11, 1Jo 1:7-2:2)
This discussion was held in connection with the message False Peace VS. Let’s make Some Noise of Faith!, on July 05, 2015 , Sunday.
False peace may prevail due to fear, deception, love of comfort, unless you dig deep. Man, woman, Jew, Gentile, slave, free – they are on even ground in Christ, this is God’s heart. He draws all to be His coworkers. The weak one, who takes on the conflict with the world becomes a hero. (Judg…
How to survive the wilderness? – Which way leads from the wilderness to brokenness instead of the way leading to quitting? We desire the promised land, not the burn-out land.
This discussion was held in connection with the message You Bear The Image of God (Thinking with God) on 2015 May 17. Sunday, 4 pm.
We see value when we love, so what we love is important. Love reveals value. Love the valuable things, love the Lord first, because He is the greatest value. As we think with Christ, He teaches us to choose well. The Bible gives some simple advice about loving life, and why wouldn’t we want that?…
The fast track is Satan’s program, whereas God places us in processes. Important things cannot be quickly finished. Peace and rest is in the Lord. (2Pe 3:8, Psa 90:12, 37:7, Lk 12:29-34, 13:31-32)
The work of God may not be measured, fulfilled, enforced naturally. Don’t miss out on it! Failure, inability, uncertainty may be part of it, but the testimony of His Word is the source of our joy. (Mk 1:15, Lk 17:20-21, 22:15,24, 24:16,18,25-26, Jo 12:27-28a, 1Jo 2:12-14)
