God knows what you do

Just spent two days with a great team (the staff of Melbourne 614). Planning for 2012 and the things we want to achieve. What a blessing it is when you know you are where God wants you to be doing what He wants you to do. Every time […]

Sing Songs of Worship

When God does a new and wonderful thing in us it makes us want to Worship Him in singing songs of praise. Psalm 98:1 Sing a new song to the Lord,because he has done amazing things! His powerful and holy right arm has brought him another victory.

Good news is for sharing

The willingness to share without holding back from the truth is one of the main contributions we can make in recovery. Sharing encourages understanding, interest, support and fellowship. Sharing our experience lightens our burden and often benefits others. Testimony and open confession makes us witnesses, cementing our decision […]

Jonah ran away because he was afraid to measure his manly strength against being what God wanted him to be. He felt he could map put his own destiny remote from difficult jobs like the one God appointed him to. Like Jonah our first response to the difficulties […]

A warning

As we walk daily with God it is important we are as aware if what He doesn’t want from us as well as what He does. 1 Timothy 4:1-2 The Holy Spirit clearly says that in the later times some people will stop believing the faith. They will […]

Cheer Up

Recognising the presence of Jesus is to subject ourselves to the discovery of His footprints. He is always there. We can safely follow after Him. His way is best: He is THE WAY. How cheerful we can be knowing He is there, with us. Going forward triumphantly depends […]
