He understands.

He understands.

Have you ever had a problem that you felt no one else could really understand? Ever had a hurt so deep that it feels impossible to explain to someone else? It can be hard describing our stories to people who we feel just don’t get it.

But we serve a God who understands all things. He knows what it’s like to suffer – just look at what Jesus went through for us! He knows hurt, anger, depression, disappointment, happiness and joy. There is nothing that you can take to Him that He doesn’t understand and feel with you.

Psalm 147:3 (http://bit.ly/2XPaPqY)

#theFIGHT

There are a lot of things in life that we have to fight. Sometimes I feel as useful as a pair of crocks carrying water. It feels like I have no strength to face my battles some days, and that can feel like a pretty lonely and helpless space.

But do you know what I remind myself of?
The God of the Bible.

Deuteronomy 20:4 (http://bit.ly/2pT3CqK) says that God is the One who goes with us to fight our enemies. We never go into battle alone – God is there. He never makes us fight alone and helps bring us victory!

100% Trustworthy

100% Trustworthy.

People fail us every day, and it can be hard to trust others sometimes. We know that we aren’t always true to our word and we don’t always have the best intentions. Often I have to sit before God and confess that I’ve let someone down.

Knowing this, it can be hard to trust God too. It’s hard to understand He can be 100% trustworthy, true and good.

Numbers 23:19 (http://bit.ly/2pOTOxP) tells us God is not like us; He fulfils His word, He doesn’t speak and not act. We can trust him completely.

Isn’t that comforting?
He is who He says He is; nothing less, nothing more.

Who Rules?

Who Rules?

May is voting month in South Africa; even If you can’t vote, chances are you’ve seen the posters and heard people talking about it. Politicians use every tactic they can to get ahead, to win the race. False promises are made; old commitments are renewed. New plans are put in place. It can be a stressful and emotional time for South Africans.

But you know what?

Whoever rules our country is still ruled by God. He is sovereign over everything and sits on the ultimate throne. No matter who wins this election, God is still in control.

Read 1 Chronicles 29:11-12 (http://bit.ly/2XQvoDp).
