HIGH PLACES
“Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the LORD. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.” Psalm 68:4-5

Many Aboriginal tribal groups in Australia have a fear of heights. A fear that has […]

BEAUTY FROM ASHES – LIFE FROM DEATH.
Jesus was a wanted man in Judea. A law breaker. He would risk his life to go back there at this time and yet he did. When news came that his precious friend Lazarus was in a critical condition and near death he longed to return knowing the danger. […]

THAT NEVER ENDING ROAD.
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. 2 Timothy 4:2

We head off later this week on yet another country towns tour of Queensland. There’s still so much to do. It’s been many years since we got to […]

The Spirit of Restoration
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you […]

The girl I married
30 years ago today she married me. She has stood beside me in great achievements and in times of brokenness and despair. We have laughed and cried together and made a million memories on a journey of learning to trust God in all things. She has seen me at my best and […]

In the Beginning..

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. He is like a tree planted […]

A faith that floats.

I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:9-10

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from. It doesn’t matter what you have done or even what people may think about you. The truth is you have been called by God, chosen to be His servant to live in the fullness of faith because of Jesus.

To many religious self righteous people Joseph and Mary were a foolish young couple. She had become pregnant before marriage and he had chosen to stand with her and protect her from the shame of a nullified wedding or being stoned to death for such an unforgivable sin. They had seen visions and had visitations by angels telling them that the child she was bearing was from God, the promised Messiah. None of it made much sense but they had the faith to keep believing they were called and chosen for such a time as this.

Jesus the refugee

“When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” Matthew 2:13-18

Within weeks of his birth Jesus Christ was an asylum seeker. His father and mother ‘on the run’ from corrupt authorities who eventually would send in soldiers to kill every baby boy born in the region of Bethlehem in the past two years. Imagine the pain and sorrow.. the mourning of thousands of mothers who lost their little boys because of the Godless, heartless leaders of the day. We fantasise the Christmas story but those days were desperate and violent.

Nothing is sound.

Hebrews 13:8 ” Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever”.

Life is an unpredictable journey of faith in a world that has lost its way. There are no guarantees and nothing is sound. It can all be gone tomorrow. There are times when the rains fall from the sky bringing blessing or […]
