Falling Upward

Life is one big learning experience, and for those who know and love Jesus, He is our Teacher. More than anything else, He wants to teach each of us all we need to know about Him, His love and salvation, and how we can be of greatest service to Him and others.

God knows that none of us can accomplish any real good if we depend on our own supposed strength and wisdom. In fact, Jesus said, “Without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). But the Bible also says that[...] read more

But If Not

–What to Do When God Doesn’t Seem to Answer Your Prayers

David Brandt Berg

A girl wrote me:

I started serving the Lord a couple of years ago for eight months, but then I stopped because my face became very spotty. It sounds so silly, but it was my biggest trial! I prayed that God would heal me, but for some reason He didn’t. Then I started working for the Lord again about two months ago, and my face has become all spotty again. I have worked myself into such a state over it that it keeps[...] read more

The Lord lets us go through tests sometimes. He can even make it appear as if He is being a little too hard on us, so that we’re tempted to think, “How could God let us suffer like this? How can He let that sort of thing happen?” The Devil is always around to try to make you doubt and even criticize the Lord, like he did with Job.

God said about Job, “There is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears[...] read more

One of the most encouraging and comforting things that a Christian needs to realise and constantly remember–particularly when he’s going through times of trouble, trials and tribulations–is that our Heavenly Father LOVES us, and is in absolute and total control of our lives!–And that NOTHING[...] read more

Go Slow–You’ll Get There Quicker

“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). The Bible doesn’t promote hurry. The only verse I can remember any preachers or anybody else using to try to make us rush was, “The king’s business required haste” (1 Samuel 21:8). But for that one Scripture, I think there must be a hundred that tell us to go slow, or words to that effect—even to take it easy.

Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give[...] read more

Squeeze!–Don’t Jerk!

One day my wife and I were in a hurry to get home to do our work, our writing, but instead we sat down on a lovely rock wall to enjoy the view for a moment—when we got this inspiration:

There is hardly anything that can be enjoyed in a hurry—a glass of wine, a walk, a talk, a ride, a view, a meal, or an embrace. God is hardly ever in a hurry! It takes Him time to make a baby, a flower, a tree, a sunset, or even a blade of grass.

It’s a funny thing, but thoughts like this[...] read more

Feet of Faith

(Written to a couple whose baby was born with deformed feet.)

My dear loved ones,

Our prayers are with you for your baby’s feet. The Lord has a promise for feet: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’” (Isaiah 52:7).

Remember that nothing happens by accident! God has a purpose in everything, even if it is[...] read more
