The Goodness of His Sovereignty

We can never understand the sovereignty of God. Even when we question it, the answer wouldn’t satisfy our aching heart or logical minds. But, this Sovereign God, who allows the storms; silences it; who tells you to wait; redeems your time, who allows the loss; shows up as a restorer. He is GOOD, FAITHFUL, PERFECT,…

The fall of an OAK TREE

“To grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called OAKS of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61: 3) For an oak tree…

Breakfast on the Shore

“Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread.” John 21:5, 9 After the resurrection, Jesus repeated the miracle (Luke 5: 1-11). It became difficult for them to haul…

Close One Eye

When a bowman aims the arrow at his target, before its release, he closes one eye. Why would he do that when vision is the best with two eyes? The bowman does it so that, any other visible things shouldn’t distract him from his target. “He closes one eye to focus”. Even when everything is…

Humility comes after Casting

“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you…

Holiness – Like a Hug

Every time my son hugs me I am filled with an awe unexplainable. His gestures of love is totally breathtaking and immensely valuable. Any parent would agree how wonderful it’s when their children express love toward them.  Before hitting the bed, sometime I reflect through the day; I get reminded of his love. And, then…

Two Voices

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” I Peter 5:5   Pride tells me, “get even with Cold War”; Humility tells me, “keep no record of wrongs”. Pride tells me, “they are not fair”; Humility tells me, “my reward comes from God”. Pride tells me, “rebel against their likes”; Humility tells me,…

He didn’t come – Part 1

The two most alarming instances for me in the Bible were when Jesus never turned up to see His cousin – John the Baptist who was imprisoned, and when He delayed in coming to Lazarus’ home while he was sick. Whenever I read these two cases, I avoid pondering on them; as it hurts deeply…

Two Friends and Me

No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends – John 15: 13 I have two close friends whom God alone has given me a heart to love and immensely love. With my own effort I would never have done what I…
