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)
What do you do when the sea is in front of you and the Pharaoh – Satan – and his army is behind you?
God want his people to humbleness be one of their characteristics and their main virtue. What is humility? Where can it be learnt? Why is it good for us?
(1Pet 5:5-6; Psa 33:13-14, 14:2-3; Phil 2:6-8; Mat 11:28-29, 26:53; Gal 3:13; Tit 2:14)
What does the “much more” in the Scriptures mean? What does it mean personally in practice?
(Psa 9:10, Ro 5:8-10)
How do you know who God is? No one has ever seen Him and nobody knows Him but He is working to reveal Himself. In a sense we are forced to share the treasure we received from God.
(Prov 18:21, Eph 5:14-16, 1Tim 6:15-16, Mat 11:25-27, Jn 8:12, 19, Jer 21:8)
We are the sheep of God’s pasture. He has chosen us and ordained us for certain things. This is His work not mine and He says: “Rest! Don’t worry about anything!” The other thing is that I can rest in what God has given to me and I can walk in it. The third thing is that God loves the small things. Well then what do these have to do with a lousy guitar case?
(Psa 95:7, 97:13, 100:3; 2Cron 34:1-3,8, John 15:16, Luke 16:10, 2Cor 8:12, Phil 1:6, James 5:7-8)
If you made a target and put a cross in the middle then what would the center of it be? It would be love. Because love is at the center and it’s because that is the most unnatural thing for a man if he is in the flesh. We have to learn about it again and again. So when I think of what love is these questions come up:
– What is the thing in love that I can’t live without?
– What is love if it doesn’t matter what I do if I do it with love?
– What kind of feeling is that when we are loved? What do I think when I’m loved?
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…
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.

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)
