Ons veilige vesting... - Liewe Jesus belowe dat Hy ons sal behoed en bewaar – dit beteken ook teen Covid-19. As jy dalk bang raak en nie seker is wat hierdie virus beteken nie – lees en onthou Psalm 91. “Hy wat by die Allerhoogste skuiling vind en die beskerming van die Almagtige geniet, hy sê vir die Here: “U is my toevlug en my veilige vesting, my God op wie ek vertrou” (Psalm 91:1-3).
United in worship, Bible reading and prayer... - We as God’s children are called to do life together, support each other and unite in prayer! So let us worship like never before; take time to memorise and recite scripture (getting back into God’s Word); and get on our knees and pray without ceasing. “I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)).
Our Lord is for us… - Challenging times, such as what we are currently experiencing, prompt us to re-evaluate our priorities, our faith, and the true condition of our hearts... Do we live in fear and anxiety, allowing panic and worry to overwhelm us, or do we keep our hearts and minds focused on Jesus? This is an opportunity to lean into our calling to help others and point them to our Lord – our only source of peace, protection and hope!
Worship regardless… - Let us apply our understanding of who God is, to stir our emotions and feelings (affecting the condition of our hearts), so that our natural response (action) is to devote our lives to WORSHIPPING God in and through all circumstances.
Step into the hope we've been called to... - When we live the life God predestined for us, we become a fountain of HOPE. HOPE is what makes us fully alive! We can live a full, fruitful and content life as we surrender ALL to God and embrace the abundance of HOPE we’ve freely received through Jesus. He is our Lord and Saviour, Prince of Peace, our everlasting HOPE!
Gelyke paaie...- Maak nie saak hoe besig, lekker of moeilik ons lewens is nie, kom ons stel Liewe Jesus altyd eerste. Kom ons leef volgens wat vir Hom belangrik is. Matteus 6:33 (DB): “Stel God se koninkryk eerste. Doen net daardie dinge wat vir Hom belangrik is. Hy sal vir die res sorg... Leef vandag voluit vir God!”
Fruit-bearing lives… - God gives us many wonderful promises in His Word. But to know and understand these promises, we need to know His Word (as David said – to meditate on it day and night). Are you a person of the Word? Do you trust God to renew and refresh you, and to provide for Your needs? Do you stand on His promises? Allowing Him to transform your life to bear much fruit for His kingdom?
My portion and my cup… - Let’s trust and know that because God is with us, we can live confident, purpose-driven, love-filled lives that overflow with joy, peace, hope and love! Psalm 16:7-8; 11 (AMP): “I will bless the Lord who has counselled me; Indeed, my heart (mind) instructs me in the night. I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore”.
Grace upon grace… - May we live in the amazing LOVE and GRACE of a Father who loves us unconditionality, who treasures us as His most valuable creation, and who Has amazing plans for us to live the lives He created us to live – as we show His LOVE, GRACE and MERCY to a desperate and needy world. We have a wealth of MERCY, GRACE is free, and that all, because of LOVE!!
