On course

Winds and currents easily push ships at sea off course. The captain must regularly change the steering to get back on course. Nowadays, ships are steered by computers that automatically adjust the course when winds and currents drive them off course. The smallest degree of adjustment at the start of a journey can cause you […]

God saves you – that’s enough

Suddenly, a strange verse pops up. As if Paul reconsiders. He knows he has taught Timothy so much already, and maybe he has talked a bit too much – maybe it is a bit too much for Timothy to take in with everything he had already written to him. Therefore, this verse: 9You can count […]

Practise for serving and service

We often allow ourselves to become side-tracked. We get caught up in stories and issues that have nothing to do with our salvation. We waste out energy on issues that have no solution. Worst of all is that at the end of the day, we have no strength or time left to get where we […]

To be a good follower

My father-in-law sent me this story: A little boy longed to meet the Heavenly Father. He realised it would take some time to travel to where the Lord lived. So he put a bag of chips and a six-pack of fruit juice in his backpack and started his journey. About three blocks from his home […]

God’s timing is supernaturally perfect

Marina (not her real name) wrote to me in an e-mail: The time is 23:30 and I’m reading that piece about the clutch slipping. Thank you for this piece. It’s precisely where I was … slipping off the road, because I was sulking. It felt to me as if the Lord did not hear me and […]

Jesus and God together are a mean team

Recently I’ve been so amazed by the Bible, the Word of God. If it were the words of humans, it would no longer have existed. Other people would’ve explained what it meant and the words wouldn’t have had any meaning for others any more. But because God Himself was the Author, the words of the […]

This is my God!

Let’s think a little about who God is. How does one get to know God? When you look at a painting, it tells you about the painter. Some people know a painter so well that they can tell you the painter’s emotional state or age when that painter painted a specific picture. Without us realizing […]
