Act Like Little “gods”

The LORD’s prayer is something we Christians tend to see as a creed or benediction but it is much more than that. It is actually an outline of prayers, a set of prayers that shows us the most effective way of not only to pray but also expectations, attitudes and mindsets to have when we approach the throne of the Most High God in prayer.

Let’s see for today only one line of the LORD’s prayer: Continue reading Act Like Little “gods”

Man Forsaking God

Today I read 2 Chronicles 15. I mean, I studied this chapter but I also listened to the Book of Romans.

My friends, I can’t tell you how much I love the Book of Romans. It was the first book that the Holy Spirit opened my spiritual eyes to understand for the first time while I was in my bedroom in New Delhi, India, in the middle of the night. (Please don’t ask, “When?” It was 100 years ago.) Continue reading Man Forsaking God

After the First Night

When a man wants to marry a girl because he lusts after her body, he can present himself to her as the most romantic man on this planet earth.

And for a girl, there is nothing as attractive as a romantic man. She thinks that he is madly in love with her. But the truth of the matter is he is not really in love with her.

Whenever I read the Bible, I sometimes catch myself zooming in on one word or phrase and can’t move forward.
 
Today, I read 2 Chronicles 13 and the phrase that stopped me in the middle was this: “the battle cry,” on verse 15.
 
First, I wrestled with the phrase for a few minutes but the only thing I was able to come up with was the literal meaning of the words, battle and cry. But the literal meaning of those words didn’t sync or flow with the context of the chapter.

“Shishak” is Sent By God

This morning I read 2 Chronicles 12 and you have no idea how this chapter spoke to my heart.
 
Look at this verse:
 
“Then the prophet Shemaiah came to Rehoboam [the King of Judah, he is King Solomon’s son] and to the leaders of Judah who had assembled in Jerusalem for fear of Shishak, and he said to them, “This is what the Lord says, ‘You have abandoned me; therefore, I now abandon you to Shishak.’”” Verse 5
 
You know, when God takes us as His own, He means serious business.
