Miscellanies 3 - Refreshed and comforted by His love

My Dear Lord why should my soul doubt when you have sweetly assured me of the eternity of your Love for me. My soul, doubt no more for surely as God lives and exist so does His love for me. First he is my Maker, my creator and I the creature and He is my master and I his servant.  But this is not the reason for my comfort; He is my Father and I his child. Christ is my brother, my dear friend, for He ascended unto his Father and my Father, to his God and my God. But this is not enough for me, my maker of whose image I am made is my husband and I his bride. He is the fountain of which I drink and the Sun of my day. I am a member of his body, He my head. Such wonderful truths you have made known in your words, ‘it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than my words to fail’. Wonderful are these thoughts so spread out in the pages of your book to me that my spirit melts with awe at the consideration of them. You have done so much for me and I so little for you, but you refresh me in the hope that when I land on heavens shore, I will utterly be transformed as to be entirely perfect so that I may worship you as I ought and understand the perfection of your love for me. There I shall have a dance with grace, kiss the feet of hope and bid farewell to faith. I shall eternally dwell with love and sing with joy. Your love has comforted and refreshed my soul, Oh to be wholly entwine with thee, and hug my daddy and touch my brother’s garment. I wait in hope and purify myself as you are pure.

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…
