Wednesday, 11 November 2020 – God’s Timing

Good afternoon Church family Something that I have realised about God and I am sure you know this too, is that His timing is His. We often wonder when He will act and if He has really heard our prayers. It may seem like an age for us and then suddenly it seems when youContinue reading “Wednesday, 11 November 2020 – God’s Timing”

Friday, 6 November 2020 – By my Spirit

Hi Church family Have you ever wondered how exactly God is at work in the world and in our lives. In my quiet time today I was reading the prophet Zechariah and this verse jumped out for me: “So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by mightContinue reading “Friday, 6 November 2020 – By my Spirit”

Thursday, 5 November 2020 – Pride and Humility

Good morning Church family Last night at Bible study we looked at the pattern of God’s kingdom that emerges throughout the Old Testament. What we discovered is that we are to be God’s people living under God’s rule as King in God’s place under God’s Blessing (Rest). To venture out on our own, to liveContinue reading “Thursday, 5 November 2020 – Pride and Humility”

Wednesday, 4 November 2020 – Habakkuk’s Prayer

Good morning Church family, How blessed we are to live in New Zealand, sheltered in many respects from many of the burdens of the world today.

Tuesday, 3 November 2020 – God’s Love

Good morning Church family, 1 Chronicles 16:34 says “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” In fact I think we might have sung this song on Sunday.

Friday, 30 October 2020 – Persevere

Hi Church family, One important characteristic that we need to develop and hold onto in our faith journeys is perseverance. Often God’s timing is not necessary our timing. One thing to remember is that God never stops working out His will and will succeed in His plan for His Kingdom. It is as if theContinue reading “Friday, 30 October 2020 – Persevere”

Thursday, 29 October 2020 – Grace First

Good afternoon Church family, At Bible Study the last few weeks we have been looking at God’s overall story that is seen recorded throughout Scripture. At first reading, it seems like the God of the Old Testament is quite different from the God of the New Testament. But that can’t be because God’s nature neverContinue reading “Thursday, 29 October 2020 – Grace First”

Wednesday, 28 October 2020 – Don’t walk with the Wicked

Good morning Church family, Yesterday as I was writing the daily devotional, I noticed something intriguing about Psalm 1:1-3.

Tuesday, 27 October 2020 – Trees bearing Fruit

Often described as a tree planted in a good spot and bearing fruit. “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sitContinue reading “Tuesday, 27 October 2020 – Trees bearing Fruit”

Friday, 23 October 2020 – This is the way

Good afternoon Church family Throughout history we see times when the people of God humble themselves and give their hearts back to the Lordship of God and begin to living in the wisdom only He can provide. The amazing thing is that when they have done that, God speaks to them personally. In Jeremiah’s timeContinue reading “Friday, 23 October 2020 – This is the way”
