Even now

John 13:38 ‘Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!’

Peter professes to follow Jesus, the reality is that this holy man denied Jesus three times. Where and in which areas of your life are you disowning Jesus? Where can you start today first in small areas of letting Jesus own you? Then moving with commitment and trust to giving over all areas. What can you give up for him? What owns you? Is Jesus not clever enough to work out your path that you need to apply worldly reasoning to know better than our LORD? Worldly reasoning is what got people and many parts of this world into a mess in the first place. Joel 2:12 "Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning." Let our LORD speak to your heart this most Holy week. Time for real sustainable change. Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, may we your children really deny ourselves in loving service to you. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

Free gift of God

Romans 4:16 ‘So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift.’

God after giving of creation, of life, of blessings decides that to fulfill our shortfalls he decides to give his son. None of us could imagine if we were totally without fault to give one of our children’s lives, or an only child’s life for the faults of others, and to convince the child of that necessity. What kind of selfless loving God do we have? One who sees into and past the turbulence in your life, One who says you belong to me, I bought you with my son’s life and his separation from me. Deep within you, you wish to take up that place of being owned by our LORD. Psalm 91:1 ‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.’ The LORD has a place for you inside away from the searing sun, turbulent wind and building storm. Peace be with you.

Prayer. Holy Father, thank you for your unconditional love. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work. Fill Elsa, Enrique, Michael , Delano, Anthony, Jean- Pierre and Enzo with your gift of faith and healing.

As little children

Romans 4:17 ‘… and calls into existence things that do not exist.’

The theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking passed away this week. He was a self-professed atheist. Some may draw on his brilliance and views to feed their doubts; he worked on establishing theories. Jesus Christ is not a theory as there are written witnesses to his coming, workings, death and resurrection, but his divinity rests in your heart. 1 Corinthians 8:1 ‘But while knowledge makes us feel important, it is love that strengthens the church.’ God’s creation continues, we must use our knowledge to bring our LORD glory. A child trusts a parent mostly without question. Mathew 18:3 ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.’ Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, gracious God please accept Stephen Hawking and those who have passed from this life into your kingdom. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work. Fill Elsa, Enrique, Michael , Delano, Anthony, Jean- Pierre and Enzo with your gift of faith and healing.

A living faith

John 5:29 ‘..those who did good will come forth to life; and those who did evil will come forth to judgment.’

Different church theologies give so much time and energy to denouncing the part that works in this life plays in salvation. Did good is an action – a works. Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good,’ Can you or I ever do enough to earn salvation – no we are saved by grace, does faith alone qualify you for that grace? We have a journey and obligations in between and that is faith in action – doing the works of God. John 14:15 "If you love me, keep my commands.’’ Can a belief in grace alone qualify us for salvation? James 2:17 ‘Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.’ Will dead faith qualify you for salvation? What area is God calling you to be actively involved in? Are you using your talents for God’s glory? Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed God, please energize all of your children to have faith in action. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work. Fill Elsa, Enrique, Michael , Delano, Anthony, Jean- Pierre and Enzo with your gift of faith and healing.

The spiritual field and granary

Mark 4:28 "The soil produces crops by itself.’’

Our precious God provides the soil, he asks all, Haggai 2:19 ‘Is the seed still in the barn?’ ‘‘What seed LORD?’’ Blessed sisters and brothers, the seed God gives us to plant is compassion, kindness, love, humility, service, obedience, words of encouragement and many more. There is limitless seed stored in the granary of our LORD. You have a key to that granary and field. The massive and mighty field of God’s creation calls all of his children to come and plant, to leave sophisticated technology and worldly wisdom behind. The wages for the worker are peace, wisdom, understanding, the abundance of God’s love now and in salvation. Galatians 6:9 ‘And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.’ God has not given up on you, and you are not giving up on him. Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, thank you for your grace and love. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

As you trust in him

Romans 15:13 ‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’

Please read this Scripture several times. Fatigue in this life can bring on an onset of hopelessness. The power in God’s Scripture links words and meaning together; in today’s reading, words such as joy and peace and then overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Joy and peace are always linked to hope. What is the key to this joy and peace? St Paul gives the answer in the letter to the Romans, as you trust in him. Good sisters and brothers trust is timeless and not circumstance based, constantly praying, ‘‘I trust in you LORD Jesus, I trust in you.’’ Daily, hourly, at every opportunity. Psalm 37:7 ‘…..and wait patiently for him.’ Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, please fill me with your joy and peace in all areas of my life so that I can reflect your love. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.

Call on him

Psalm 145:18 ‘The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.’

In the 21st Century call centers have proliferated, sometimes quick easy access for problem solving. We as humans become conditioned to seeking quick solutions, our way, our LORD provides the right solution, right for us and our circumstances; the only difference is it may not be according to our expected timetable. What happens when we have prayed for someone to get well and it never happened? Healing always happens, perhaps just not in the way we want? Should we rather be coupling all our prayers for their salvation and healing? Blessed friends, we have all lost someone we loved unless perhaps someone who is very young. The loss is not the end, our LORD wants us to grow in perseverance and endurance, many like myself have been miraculously healed after prayers of others, one day we shall be at the table of salvation. May you be blessed in a mighty way in your prayers and prayer time.

Prayer. Holy Father please encourage me in my prayer life to persevere and call on you in truth. Please break the drought with life giving rain in the dry areas of South Africa and the world especially in the Western Cape.
