Unsearchable Greatness?

When the bible says that God’s greatness is unsearchable, that we can’t comprehend it, it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try. Often our minds and our understanding give up instead of attempting to comprehend God’s greatness and we almost get the idea that it’s a lost cause. But seeing His greatness lifts our faith. We have renewed minds, tied down no longer by sin and no longer shaped in iniquity. A limited idea of God’s greatness leaves us with limited vision. But we have new revelation given us by the Holy Spirit, “who”, says Jesus, “will lead and guide us into all truth” and THAT TRUTH will make us free.

My Life Testifies

We often think incorrect thoughts about ourselves . Wrong thinking undermines the powerful work that Christ accomplished on the cross for us. If you know Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, you are highly favoured by God and your life testifies powerfully to the demonic realm.

Soil of Thankfulness

In the early years of my marriage, I remember that when I was asked to help clean the house, I was troubled because I thought my new wife would more easily see the things I hadn’t tidied than the things I had! How is it that we more easily see what’s wrong than what’s right? … Continued

The Real Deal with God

This text describes what I like to call ‘the real deal with God’. Obedience is the primary key to living lives authentically for Jesus, if we aren’t willing to obey Him, we aren’t really following Him. If we aren’t really following Him, we don’t really love Him.
