Thy Word is A Lamp Unto My Feet…

Sometime during this past week, it occurred to me that the Bible is divine; God-breathed and given. Since becoming born again maybe at around 14, I have never doubted that the Bible is God's word. I knew that, but this week it meant something a little different-more personal and precious to me...

A permanent reason to hope

A reason that really will redefine how we do life; that will redefine how we respond to challenges and setbacks, and put our hearts at rest irrespective of what today may look like for each one of us. For those of us who like to cut to the chase; the simple reason always boils down to Him, God, our Father and His assurance of love for us that is exemplified by His death on the cross.

Hope does not disappoint

I myself remember crying when my Form 4 results were made known to me, and my Shona result was not what I had wanted. I had invested late nights, reading of novels and research to try to get that elusive A. And when it did not come, I was so frustrated. And though the example may seem petty; my point is simply that I can relate to the feeling of a heavy heart from an unfulfilled dream.

Sin

One of the reasons we are so susceptible to sin and why we do not take sin seriously enough is we are not convinced of the consequences of it." In another manner of speaking, we do not treat sin as seriously, definitively and decidedly as we ought to because we don't think it is a big deal and we do not think that we have a lot to lose.

The Word of God Accomplishes what it is sent for

Many a time we as humans will take back our word. We will say I didn't mean that or I was only joking and the like. We will say or promise things we have no intention of fulfilling and as a result a trail of pain and heartache is often in our wake: the story of the promises we did not keep and the careless words we flung like gravel into our loved one's faces. But not so with God.Not a single word God speaks is in vain; not a single one escapes without a purpose or plan. There is a scripture in the book of Psalms that says Even above His name has the Lord exalted his word. At first I thought is a theological farce when I heard someone say even above His name has the Lord exalted His Word. It didn't think it made sense and it was technically blasphemy in my eyes. Now try to imagine how it blew my mind when I realised that actually it was a verse in scripture that if memory serves me right is actually repeated a few times in scripture. At that moment; the significance of the Word of God assumes a whole new dimension in your mind. The Word of God is more than mere words: it is the decree of an all powerful King of His will that no force on Earth, in Heaven and under the Earth can stop. It expresses how the most powerful being intends to exert His influence and for its execution; there is Spirit of God-He who hovered over the formless Earth and effected the execution of the word of creation: who overshadowed Mary and the virgin conceived and who saw to it that at the Word of Jesus, at that of the prophets before Him and the apostles and saints after was made to come to pass. Never is there a moment when without purpose the word escapes His mouth.In the book of Isaiah, the word of God is compared to the rain and to the snow (dew in another translation)-Neither of which can fall and fail to result in the joyous and sensuous response of nature; from the plants that become lush and green, to the refreshing sharp scent of rain on soil that is refreshingly surreal. It... Continue Reading →

The Word of God is a Light

A few years ago, a tv personality a favourite of mine at that time Dr Phil said during one of his talk shows that “Monsters live in the dark.” Through years of depression, low self-esteem, fractious relationships and pornography addiction, I personally got to know what this meant. However, I have also discovered that there... Continue Reading →
