God

“Even If”–MercyMe


Our commitment to follow Christ should be a lifelong undertaking. But sometimes we need encouragement to help us along the way. Because as humans we are prone to making decisions that are often not in our best long-term interests.

Back in Biblical Days, God uses the prophet Isaiah as a mouthpiece, to encourage and educate the people. In Isaiah 41, and verse 10 God offered the people words of encouragement. It was at a time when the people were going through tough times from the hands of the king of Assyria. The people had grown impatient with God. They thought He was not answering their prayers for freedom. Many of them had lost their way. But through the prophet, Isaiah, God was able to get His message through to the people. He reminded them that He was still their God. And His promises to them holds.

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand”, (Isaiah 40:10).

Contemporary Christian music band, MercyMe, is like a present-day Isaiah. They encourage and educate people through songs. Here is one of their most inspiring testimonies. “Even If”.

Are all sins equal in the eyes of God?


James 2:10-11 (NIV)

10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.

A Psalm of Praise/Thanksgiving


Psalm 100King James Version (KJV)

 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Are you stuck in a bad situation? God will pull you out.


Are you stuck in a bad situation? God will pull you out.
Time and again God came through for people who were in dire straits. Whether it was Daniel in a den of hungry lions, the swindler, Jacob fleeing Laban, scrawny young David biting off more than he could chew and agree to duel the giant, Goliath, Peter locked up in prison awaiting execution, or the three Hebrew boys in a fiery furnace.

God never failed to come through for those who genuinely need help. He is always there for you. And though He may not come when you want Him, he is always on time.

Nothing is impossible with God. So, whatever the situation you are stuck in, God is more that able to pull you out. Whether it’s something in your past, the nagging supervisor at your job that you cannot stand, or something to do with your finances or your relationships.

But it is important to understand that God does not impose His will on anyone. Here is what Jesus says about this. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open for you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.“” (Matthew 7:7-8).

Therefore, my friends. God is the silver line beneath your dark clouds. You only have to reach out to Him. He is the same Yesterday, today and forever. He parted the seas, calmed storms, closed the mouth of hungry lions and quench the heat of fiery furnaces. He always makes a way when it seems there is no way.
