Rest in the Lord!

1st of August This has been a message to me lately. It is therefore only natural that I share with you what I myself have received and experienced. I like to be active and feel useful. I like to be something for somebody and I was not too happy when I heard these words in my spirit and also from people with a prophetic gift. It took some time before I understood what it was all about. I have had many questions about how to rest in the Lord and more will come. Should one lie down and close ... (read more)

Friendship

1st of July I might have written something about this before, but I am urged to write a theme about this now. We have a variety of friendships and many different friends. The Bible encourages us not to be friends with the world. We can read in James 4:4: ” Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. ” We can other places read that those of us who ... (read more)

Inheritance

15th of June You probably know that we all inherit something. We inherit a certain resemblance from our parents. I am sure that you have heard this saying: “Oh, She looks exactly like her mother or there is no doubt about the fatherhood of this boy. We do not only inherit their looks, but also their intelligence and certain traits from their character. In 1.Pet.1:18 we read that we are redeemed from aimless conduct inherited from our forefathers. We inherit both the positive and the ... (read more)

Expect a harvest!

1st of June We are enjoying the summer right now and I am not asking you to wait for the fall with its chill. No, I ask you to expect a harvest, a harvest that is the result of what you have sown. We can read in Gal.6.7-10: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, ... (read more)

Be fruitful!

15th of May I know that I have written about this in other subjects, but I have chosen to write about this as a theme in itself. We can go to Genesis 1:28. There we can read: “Be fruitful or bear much fruit!” God mentions both fishes and birds and everything else that moves on the earth. He talks about plants and trees and He says to the humans that they should multiply and become many. God is for life and growth and death and stagnation are not His will. We might quickly move to ...

Don’t give up!

1st of  May Patience is not my strongest virtue and I am therefore writing this to myself just as much as for you. I do hope that we will all be blessed by what I am writing. I am as usual asking the Holy Spirit to help me. I would like to start by quoting Paul and writes from 1.Cor.9:24-27: “Do you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they ... (read more)

It is not in vain

15th of April I will continue to write about good deeds and I am especially writing to you who think that you are not doing enough or what you do has no importance. I will in the beginning refer to 1.Cor.15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.” I believe that many of you need to be reminded of the fact that whatever we do in Christ will never be in vain. I do not know how you ... (read more)

Created for good deeds

1st of April Many people are confused and wonder why they live. What is the purpose for living? They might be struck by sickness or any other problem. Others might be poor and do not know how to get enough money for living. Others have too much money and they do not know what to do with them. I do not want to minimize your problem, but I have been very inspired by a book written by a man without legs and arms. He travels around the world to inspire others to look for possibilities and solutions ... (read more)

Allow the supernatural to become natural!

15th of March I have lately watched films about healings, miracles, rising from the dead and strong deliverances. These things have happened in many different countries and God’s power has been manifested in the strangest places. The main theme through the films has been the love of God. These films have been free of religion, but full of Jesus. Maybe I should explain what I mean by such a statement. Religion is full of laws and regulations and people feel that the demands can be too much ... (read more)

What is behind the facade, part 2?

1st of March Part 2 Last time I wrote about the different things one should look for when one is in love and considers marriage. Then I mentioned some of the things that could be hidden behind the walls of the church. I wrote about facades that were hiding lies and sin, but thank God: There are shiny walls that are pure and holy on the inside. What kind of facades should we Christians reflect? Jesus. He lives on the inside of us and why are we so busy hiding what we have on the inside? The ... (read more)
