Jesus' Rescue of Peter

Matthew 14:31
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Peter put the Lord to the test by asking the Lord to allow to him come and meet Him on the water. Of course, Peter knew walking on the water was no ordinary, natural feat and that he required power from the Lord to accomplish it. And the Lord gave him at that every moment. Peter wasted no time in setting forth to exercise the extraordinary power to walk on water which the Lord had just given him...More

Evil Spirit from the LORD

1 Samuel 16:14-15
But the spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him. And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

Many of us will find it hard to comprehend the verses of scripture above. We may wonder and ask ourselves: How can an evil spirit come from God? Isn’t God supposed to be pure and holy? Isn’t the devil the source of evil? Maybe there must have been an error somewhere. Beloved, there is no error anywhere....More

Appearance of Evil

1 Thessalonians 5:22
Abstain from all appearance of evil.

The Bible says in Philippians 2:12 that we should work out our salvation with fear and trembling. This means we have a responsibility to make sure that we do all we can to stand fast and strong in the faith. Anything that appears like evil will most likely lead to evil...More

Facing the Darkness

Bible in a Year: 1 Chronicles 4–6, John 6:1–21

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light.
Isaiah 9:2

Today's Scripture & Insight: Isaiah 9:2–6

In the mid-1960s, two people participated in research on the effects of darkness on the human psyche. They entered separate caves, while researchers tracked their eating and sleeping habits. One remained in total darkness for 88 days, the other 126 days. Each guessed how long they could remain in darkness and were off by months. One took what he thought was a short nap only to discover he’d slept for 30 hours. Darkness is disorienting.

The people of God found themselves in the darkness of impending exile. They waited, unsure of what would take place. The prophet Isaiah used darkness as a metaphor for their disorientation and as a way of speaking about God’s judgment (Isaiah 8:22). Previously, the Egyptians had been visited with darkness as a plague (Exodus 10:21–29). Now Israel found herself in darkness.

But a light would come. “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2). Oppression would be broken, disorientation would end. A Child would come to change everything and bring about a new day—a day of forgiveness and freedom (v.6).

Jesus did come! And although the darkness of the world can be disorienting, may we experience the comfort of the forgiveness, freedom, and light found in Christ.

By: Glenn Packiam

Reflect & Pray
What would it look like to embrace a new day of freedom and forgiveness? How can you welcome the light of Christ today?


Dear Jesus, shine Your light into my life. Bring forgiveness and freedom. Help me to live in the light of Your arrival.

Beautiful garden at dusk

What if it had happened yesterday?

You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.

Today, if you will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.

James 4: 14; Hebrews 3: 15.

What if it had happened yesterday?
Mary, the daughter of a Christian mother, led a nonchalant life. One evening in London she passed a hall where the gospel was preached. A Christian lady named Sheila invited her in. Mary replied: “Another time. I haven’t a Bible.” Sheila offered Mary her own one, and Mary was persuaded to enter. The message struck her heart: She started to cry, confessed her sins to Jesus and found peace through faith in Him. Before leaving, Mary handed the Bible back to Sheila, who didn’t want it back. She wrote a few words in it for Mary, giving it to her as a present.

That evening Mary wrote to her mother, telling her of her conversion. Next morning Mary was the victim of a serious accident. After being taken to hospital urgently, she asked the surgeon: “Doctor, will I get over this?” – “No, that’s impossible!” was his frank reply.

Aware of her serious condition, that death was approaching, she found the strength to raise her hands in an attitude of praise to cry out: “Thank you, God, that it didn’t happen yesterday.” Then she was still uncaring and lost. Today she went peacefully to be with her Saviour.

Sheila often visited that hospital. When she telephoned that day, she was informed that a Bible bearing her name had been found next to a bed. She was moved when she recognised it as the Bible she had given Mary the day before.

Dear reader, today God is speaking to you: He is patiently waiting for you. Don’t risk putting off your decision until tomorrow!

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 12: 1 – 15 · Psalms 94: 12 – 23

God will visit you again

‘Your visitation has preserved my spirit.’ Job 10:12 WEB

There’s no cure for past pain like present desire. When the longing for something is powerful enough, it can wipe out the pain of the past, enabling you to rise again with renewed energy and purpose. If you ask women who have experienced the pain of childbirth whether it was worth everything they went through, many would be willing to go through it again to experience the joy of holding that little one in their arms.

Maybe you’ve experienced a tragedy that has left you feeling indifferent about the future, or a heartbreak that still has you reeling in pain. You may have tried to rationalise it by telling yourself, ‘As long as I don’t care, it won’t hurt.’ The fear of being hurt again is very real; a burned child dreads the fire. But you can’t live the rest of your life in fear.

Job lost his health, his wealth, and his children in a single day. How did he get through it? He said, ‘Your visitation has preserved my spirit.’ God is not finished with you. He will visit you again! Job’s story ends with these words: ‘The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.’ (Job 42:10 KJV) And God can do the same for you.

Be encouraged—He has a better future for you: ‘If you devote your heart to Him and stretch out your hands to Him, if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear. You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by.’ (Job 11:13–16 NIV)

SoulFood: Heb 9:1–11:16, Mark 9:38–50, Ps 75, Pr 11:23

Porn giant faces class action lawsuit for hosting child sex trafficking videos

Another leading online pornography company is facing the possibility of a class action lawsuit alleging that it profits from child sexual abuse material and sex trafficking.

Filed in the U.S. District Court for Central California, the complaint seeking class action status was filed against XVideos and its parent company, WebGroup Czech Republic, on behalf of a victim identified only as Jane Doe.

The lawsuit was filed by the National Center for Sexual Exploitation in consultation with five other survivor-focused and commercial litigation law firms. The court filing contends that Doe is a victim and survivor of...more

Something New

Farming is difficult in areas that lack fresh water. To help solve this problem, the Seawater Greenhouse company has created something new: “cooling houses” in Somaliland, Africa, and other countries with similar climates. Cooling houses use solar pumps to drizzle saltwater over walls made of corrugated cardboard. As the water moves down each panel, it leaves its salt behind. Much of the remaining fresh water evaporates inside the structure, which becomes a humid place where fruit and vegetable crops can flourish.

Through the prophet Isaiah, God promised to do a “new thing” as He provided “streams in the wasteland” for ancient Israel (Isaiah 43:19). This new thing contrasted with the old thing He had done to rescue His people from the Egyptian army. Remember the...more

Uncharted Waters

The ball drops in New York’s Times Square. The crowd counts down to Big Ben chiming. Sydney Harbor erupts in fireworks. However your city marks it, there’s something exciting about welcoming in a new year and the fresh start it brings. On New Year’s Day we push out into new waters. What friendships and opportunities might we find?

For all its excitement, though, a new year can be unsettling. None of us knows the future or what storms it may hold. Many New Year’s traditions reflect this: Fireworks were invented in China to supposedly ward off evil spirits and make a new season prosperous. And New Year’s resolutions date back to...more

On the Same Team

When Philadelphia Eagle’s quarterback Carson Wentz returned to the field after healing from a severe injury, the NFL team’s backup quarterback, Nick Foles, graciously returned to the bench. Although competing for the same position, the two men chose to support each other and remained confident in their roles. One reporter observed that the two athletes have a “unique relationship rooted in their faith in Christ” shown through their ongoing prayers for each other. As others watched, they brought honor to God by remembering they were on the same team—not just as Eagles quarterbacks, but as believers in Jesus representing Him.

The apostle Paul reminds believers to live as “children of the light” awaiting Jesus’ return (1 Thessalonians 5:5–6). With our hope secure in the salvation Christ has provided, we can shrug off any temptations to compete out of jealousy, insecurity, fear, or envy. Instead, we can “encourage one another and build each other up” (v. 11). We can respect spiritual leaders who honor God and “live in peace” as we serve together to accomplish our shared goal—telling people about the gospel and...Full devotional details

The Triumph of Forgiveness

Mack, having struggled with drug abuse and sexual sin, was desperate. Relationships he valued were in disarray, and his conscience was beating him up. In his misery, he found himself unannounced at a church asking to speak with a pastor. There he found relief in sharing his complicated story and in hearing about God’s mercy and forgiveness.

Psalm 32 is believed to have been composed by David after his sexual sin. He compounded his wrongdoing by devising a sinister strategy that resulted in the death of the woman’s husband (see 2 Samuel 11–12). While these ugly incidents were behind him, the effects of his actions remained. Psalm 32:3–4 describes the deep struggles he experienced before he acknowledged the ugliness of his deeds; the gnawing effects of unconfessed sin were undeniable. What brought relief? Relief began with...Full devotional details

When I was five years old, my parents separated, and I was put into an orphanage. One day a married couple visited us, wanting to adopt a child. I saw them standing there choosing, and I hoped they would take me. I longed for a home, a father and a mother. But they took someone else.

Years passed. Many couples came and made their choice, and I always remained behind. I still hope and longed fervently: I wanted to belong somewhere. But nobody wanted me. Once I asked the housemother, “Won’t anyone have me?” she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I don’t know. Perhaps they will one day.” But it never happened...Full devotional details

The Amalekites attacked the people of Israel in the wilderness. They struck when the people were exhausted. Moreover, they had the rear ranks and all the stragglers particularly in view (cf. Deuteronomy 25:17.18).
