In Psalm 63 David makes an astounding statement – God’s love is greater than life itself. But what makes God’s love greater than life and why?
Remembering God is a practice widely spoken of in the Bible. What does it mean to remember God in daily life and why are we to remember Him continually?
What is the role of struggle and suffering in human life? How often do we pray that God saves us from a particular struggle and suffering only to find out that we go exactly through this what we want to avoid? The doctor tells you bad news about your chances to have a child. Your father’s health is deteriorating. You lost a loved one unexpectedly.
How can we overcome the fear of the unknown? We want and pray for change – to start a new career, to restore a relationship, to learn a new skill, to write a book, to heal. The fulfillment of our goals, desires and God’s promises means change and venturing into the unknown. Often, what holds us back and is our greatest enemy is the fear of the unknown.
How are you fighting the fear of the unknown when it is gripping you? The uncertainty of a crucial medical check. The start of a new job. The relocation in another city. Do you know that God addresses very specifically the fear of the unknown in His word?
Have you wondered why did you need to endure such pain? Take heart, God has given you much more than just freedom from captivity. Our pain and suffering are not in vain. They are powerful ingredients to transform us into vessels prepared to serve and useful to God.
Very often we feel stuck in our faith journey and don’t know how to get unstuck and start walking again. We have not thought it would take so long and would be so difficult. We struggle with a problem or a situation for a long time, and we still don’t have a solution. It seems we are going in circles, and we don’t see the progress we want so much.
Our decisions determine the direction and quality of our lives. But how to make godly decisions? How can we make sure that our decisions are good, godly and in harmony with God’s will for our lives?
Personal expectations can be a source of satisfaction and joy, as well as a source of disappointment and frustration. But why do we get so disappointed when things do not develop as we expect? And how can we live not depending on our expectations?
How can we responsibly handle our expectations and thus increase our satisfaction in life? The hotel is crowded and loud, the desired job comes in a package with a complaining colleague, the attempts to eat healthy fail, a friend refuses to help at the last minute, the husband has forgotten the anniversary.
