    Nothing Can Stop Us

    “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6 The journey towards eternity is the life of every Christian. This journey of a believer is seldom a cake walk, instead, it needs the understanding of God and His word. Many start the journey, but few understand its essence and live a life pleasing to God. Some get weary with the troubles and the tribulations that they happen to hear and experience. Some also get tired and go vulnerable to the wily nature of the …

    You Cannot Serve God And Money

    “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21 We run all through our lives to gather money, name and fame that belongs to the world. We fail to recognise that they all will cease to exist one day. At times, they cease even as we watch them happening in front of our eyes. That is why Jesus tells us not to gather treasures for ourselves on earth. He has a better place for us where we will live forever with Him and that is where we need to store up our treasures. These heavenly treasures …

    Fight The Battle

    “No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” 2 Timothy 2:4 Surprises are always special and fill us with joy. Surprise visits by someone whom we miss dearly are icing on the cake. Videos of soldiers heading back home to meet their family, tiny little babies crawling fast to their military parents overloads us with such emotions of joy and happiness even if we are complete strangers and mere spectators to them. It is quite usual that we constantly think about our family consciously or unconsciously in our daily routine. …

    You Are Never Alone

    “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18 Jacob cheated on his brother Esau and fooled his father Isaac to get the blessings of the first-born. He ran away from his family and was travelling alone. But God was still with Jacob and in a dream, God showed Jacob a ladder from heaven with angels ascending and descending. And God said to him, “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go..” (Genesis 28:15). Yes, Jacob sinned against God and was running away from his family. But our God is still …

    Sustaining in Faith

    “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Hebrews 4:2. Hophni and Phinehas were priests of the Lord, day after day facing people who in absolute faith and thanksgiving offered sacrifices to the Lord. I would assume how their faith would have been strengthened seeing others pray and praise. To add on, these two priests were the sons of a very pious man who ministered sincerely to the Lord. He could not tolerate a woman being drunk and …

    For God, with God and of God

    “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Ecclesiastes 1:14. ‘Am busy’ or ‘I don’t have time’ has become a cliché these days and majority of the time it’s rightly so or at the least feels so. Because, this devotional’s writer too perceived that way and so wrote this at the last hour. The Preacher in Ecclesiastes, taken aback by man’s never-ending business, laments and pours out his indictment at its unending cycle and meaninglessness. The Preacher though the wisest the world has ever known, is lost …

    3 Steps for Overcoming Sin

    “My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1. Overcoming sin is the battle faced by all Christians every day. Christians are not immune to sin but that doesn’t give us the license to sin. Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Being Christians, we are no longer walk according to the law but by the grace of God poured on to us …

    Communication with God

    “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.” Daniel 10:12. This is an era of extreme advancements in technology, especially in communication. We are always connected with our friends, relatives and colleagues. We convey our messages and also await a confirmation that they have reached the intended recipients. We panic if the communications are not reaching the person at the other end. If there is a fluctuation in the internet connectivity or network …

    Stay Humble in All Circumstances

    “Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.” Proverbs 27:2. Raising beautiful cut-outs, I remember vividly the enthusiastic shouts “Vote for Dove” while contesting in primary school elections with Dove being my symbol. As a part of the election propaganda, all the contestants were given few minutes to speak, and each of us praised ourselves to glory justifying we are the best. It was and still is a pleasant memory to me. Recently I encountered a few people who would just not stop speaking about themselves. Despite their credentials, hard-work, skills …

    Finding God’s will

    “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” Romans 8:35 Christian life is an adventurous journey through mountains and valleys, wilderness and green pastures, and often a delicate balance between moments of doubts and unshakeable faith. As we grow in the Lord and long to listen to Him, we keenly seek to know the will of God in our lives. At the verge of taking any life-changing decisions, be it choosing an academic discipline, career, life-partner, future ventures etc, it becomes crucial for most of us to …
