Bored... what to do?

Here are some few suggestions on what to do when your bored and when your heart is feeling restless because you just want to do something.

1. Pray and praise- You may have never considered this before as a thing to do when your bored, but ask yourself why not? Your flesh might resist it at first but when you start believe me, you will get filled with the Holy Spirit. If you love worship and if you love prayer, if you enjoy it in church or among the community of believers, if it excites you, then how much of a reward will you receive when you do it in secret, though reward shouldn't be our primary motivation but God's glory. Pray to God and what helps me is to stand and pray and have a bible in hand so that I'm praying over the verses.

2. Learn scripture- Psalm 119 explains the importance and the reward of meditating and learning scripture. it brings much joy to the soul, it prevents you from sinning, it renews your mind and rids away the world's pollution from your soul. it enriches your knowledge about God and believe me joy will fill your heart.

3. Encourage your friends in the faith- You can think about who you may want to encourage in the faith, maybe send them a text message or email them with whatever is in your heart for them. This indeed will edify your brothers and sisters in the faith

4. Finish any immediate work that needs to be done or begin preparations for the future ones.

Well, those are my suggestions and I hope some of it may work for you. Remember that in all things God works all things together for our good.

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
