By Your grace, Lord, You call us to be Your soldiers and servants.

Deuteronomy 19:1-20:9 By Your grace, Lord, You call us to be Your soldiers and servants. Help us not to be "fearful and fainthearted" (Deuteronomy 19:19). Help us to be "good soldiers of Jesus Christ" (2 Timothy 2:3). When we hear your challenging question: "Who is on the Lord's side?", may we give our committed answer: …

Without God, everything is hopeless. With God, everything is hopeful.

Learning From God's Word

“Lord, you are the God who saves me” (Psalm 88:1).

This is something we should never forget. Sadly, it’s not something that we, always, remember. We look at our circumstances, and we take our eyes off the Lord. It is not easy for us to keep our eyes on the Lord. Often, we are tempted to turn away from the Lord. We are tempted to go back to the world. These are the times when we need to let the Word of God speak to our hearts, and call us back to a closer walk with God. A closer walk with God – this is something that’s beyond us. Does this mean that we have to say “Our situation is hopeless”? In one sense, that’s exactly what it does mean – Without God, everything is hopeless.

We fail – in our love for God. He never fails – in his love for us.

Learning From God's Word

“In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name for ever” (Psalm 44:8).

We don’t, always, feel like this. Our feelings pull us here, there and everywhere. Often, we don’t feel like praising God. It’s not easy to keep on praising God. What are we to do when it seems like everything’s going wrong in our world? Let us remember this that God loves us. Does God stop loving us when the going gets tough? No. He doesn’t. He keeps on loving us. We fail – in our love for him. He never fails – in his love for us. How do we know that God loves us? – Jesus died for us. At the cross we see the dying love of Jesus. When we move on, from the cross to Jesus’ resurrection, we see that love is undying love. Undying love – let…

The Lord is great. He’s our great Saviour.

Learning From God's Word

“May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!’” (Psalm 70:4).

In times of trouble, we need to lift up our eye and look to the Lord. When we’re feeling low, this is exactly the thing that we cannot do. We need to be lifted up by the Lord. What we cannot do for ourselves, the Lord does for us. When the Lord lifts us up, we do not say, “I have pulled myself together.” We say, “The Lord is great.” What a great Saviour we have! Let us rejoice and be glad in him.
