As man

Jesus The Son Of God

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
Hebrews 4:13 (NLT)

In the beginning the Word already existed.

The Word was with God,

and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,

and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,

and his life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:1-5 (NLT)


There’s something about worry

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. – Matthew 6:34

There’s something about worry. It’s so widespread, and so insidious. It’s worse than cancer. It claims more victims. It costs countless hours of sleep each night. It robs millions of people of their joy every day. Often, it goes unrecognised, or is accepted as normal. The bible says : ‘Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus’. (Philippians 4:6-7, TLB)

If we just take God literally at his word. Simply trust in him. Stop fretting about what could happen ( or not happen)! Stop worrying about what tomorrow may bring or not bring. Don’t dwell on ‘what ifs’. Don’t worry. Actually let God take control. Let go of the reins. Hand them over to someone who is definitely better at doing it all. Someone who has better multitasking skills than you can dream of. Someone who’s organisational and creative skills are beyond exceptional! Hey, have you ever heard the individual cries of six billion people? Or counted each hair of a single baby? Do you know how many birds there are in the world, or how to ensure each and every one is properly fed everyday? Talk about designer dresses, can you make a dress as soft and elegant as a flower’s petal?

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. – Matthew 6:33

It’s about our focus. God tells us to change our perspective. Look up to him. Aim to please him. Follow Jesus. Do God’s will. Read the Bible. Do what he says. Make pleasing him the ultimate goal and everything else will fall in place. And why not? What on earth is more important than seeking God?

You are not forgotten

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. – 1 Corinthians 15:58

Are you seeking God with all your heart? Doing the works  of him who sent you? Trying your best to fit in church commitments, to be kind and loving to your neighbours, studying God’s word, spending time with God in prayers? Wherever possible, perhaps you are using available opportunities to bless people, help the poor, and give of your time and resources? Maybe sometimes you feel stretched in trying to live a godly life and are relying on God’s grace to get you through everyday…

You are not forgotten.

God is not unfaithful to overlook your works. He hasn’t forgotten you. He is still out there working on your behalf. He will answer your prayers. You are precious to him, and he loves you. He actually said he will give men in exchange for your life. That’s how precious you are to him.

You are valued. God appreciates you. He hasn’t forgotten you and he is answering your prayers. He sees your heart, your yearnings, and he knows your desires. His plans for you are of welfare and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God loves you. Be encouraged
