What I Learnt from Fasting for 10 Days

In July, my church announced a 10-day mid-year fast that would be 4 days – breaking with food, 3 days – break with fruit, 3 days – break with only water.  I was involved in that fast and here is what I learnt from it.

Disclaimer:  This is my PERSONAL account, written to inspire faith and not to mandate you to do anything.

  1. It is done by Faith. –  “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him”. Hebrews 11:6 (NLT)

is it God's will?

What is the will of God

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! – John 15:7 (NLT)

Many times as Christians, we get hung up on whether something is God’s will for us or not; you hear people saying I want this but I don’t know whether its God’s will for me or Let’s say I pray for something and I didn’t get it, i immediately assume that maybe its not God’s will for me. the will of GodMany times in making more serious decisions such as picking a spouse, choosing a job or deciding what career to go into we are held up at knowing whether something is the will of God or not.

We search the scriptures for the answer but of course the bible doesn’t tell us whether you should marry James or Peter or whether to become a Doctor instead of an Engineer. In these times how can we confidently go on with our decisions with the full confidence that we are in the will of God? Continue reading “What is the will of God”

How does God speak to us?

How does God speak to us?

Have you ever wondered, how does God speak to us? I get asked a lot, does God still speak? Can God speak to me? How can I hear God? How do I know God is speaking to me?

Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left. – Isaiah 30:21 (NLT)

God will speak to you in a manner alike with your person, a way you can understand and appreciate. If you are naturally an outgoing person who enjoys nature, you may find that you understand God better through nature. So you could be walking on the road and God can use the way water drops on leaves to explain how his mercies are never ending. I’m a really intellectual person who finds a lot of joy and enjoyment in books and studying so I normally get instruction through reading and listening to various material such as books and the bible.

Wheat and Tares

Wheat and tares look exactly the same, they have the same color, grow in the same way and have the same seeds; the only difference is that one is always unfruitful. Many times the devil plays this trick on us; we sow good seed, the word of God into our hearts and the devil our enemy comes in and plants his own seed, which look just like the seed we have received into our hearts without our knowledge.
