Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

Remember the words of Isaiah 50:10: “Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.”  During every challenging time and when we look for answers and direction, Isaiah tells us to entrust it all to the Lord in prayer.

Ministers and elders can realise God’s idea about the church by:
Not allowing some members more “air-time” with us than the others;
Treating each member with the same respect, love and dignity;
Not having favourites; walking the lonely road of being a friend to everyone – which means that we are never special friends to only a few.

Martin Luther said, "discipleship that gives nothing, costs nothing, and suffers nothing, is worth nothing." Are we willing to pay the price?

“Do not be afraid.”This is what Elijah, a messenger of God, said according to 1 Kings 17:13.  Elijah’s message to the sinful leaders of Israel was usually the opposite of what he said on that day to a poor widow. He was known to say to these leaders: “Be afraid! Be very afraid!”  Ahab the King, in the next chapter, did not call him, “you troubler of Israel” for nothing.

Our expectations for the upkeep of tradition, custom, culture and social convention are challenged here, in order that we may hear the Gospel of Christ.
If these conventions slow us down in God’s work, we need to rethink our priorities.

David answered Goliath's challenge, because the LORD was with him. Victory and defeat were in the hands of the LORD. Not in the hands of David or his ridiculous “weapon” – a sling and a stone. It was God who defeated Goliath - not David or his sling.

We do not have to wait till the last day, the day of the resurrection when Jesus returns, to become a new creation. It all starts here and now. It starts on the day God reconciles us with Godself. On that day we celebrate by singing and shouting:  The old has gone, the new is here!

When we hear or read about the good news of Jesus Christ, Lord and Saviour, it always calls for a response. Faith, gratitude, turning our lives around and experiencing great joy are facets of our responses.
