Plan & Purpose

There is a work for each one of us to do. There is a position that only you can fill. The place is in His presence, the position at His feet. From that place of safety and security He can lead and you can follow on the path He opens for you, with the plans He reveals for you to follow. Often we get the order wrong. Instead of seeking God for His plan, we have the plan and ask God to bless it. God has a purpose for our life. Our purpose is to fulfil it.

Travelling with God is an exciting journey. He is not so concerned with the speed, just that we move with forward momentum. He is the destination! His Holy Spirit the guiding light.

Love Never Fails

Have you ever wondered why people can pray for others to be healed and see miraculous results yet suffer enormously themselves? Do you believe in healing? Do you believe God still heals today. If you do, do you find it easier to believe for someone else’s healing than for your own? Often when praying for healing a surge of inner strength rises which is considered to be faith. To an extent it is, but thats not all! Faith is not a constant thing. We can be in faith for something one day and have little or no faith another. Faith has been known to fail! It can be paralysed when … Continue reading

Winds of Change

‘See the winter is past…the season of singing has come.’ ( Song of Songs 2:11) Lets pray God puts a new song in our hearts as He gives a glimmer of hope for this cruel winter to break.  The weather this winter  is like a parable.

Resist him, firm in your … Continue reading
