Extra Mile

If anyone press you into service for one mile, go with him for two miles.
Matthew 5:41

To help someone is truly a fulfilling and a noble thing to do. It is one of our ways of sharing the gifts God has given us. But have you ever experienced helping out to the extent of going out of your way just to do so.

Did you feel happy? Or did you feel a bit annoyed doing so? Did you ever experience regret at some point?

Truth be told, there would be times that we would feel disappointed in lending an extra time and an extra hand in doing so.

But to shed light into this, remember that helping out is never a bad thing to do. We are all called to help each other out in times of need. Even when it means exerting an extra effort to do so.

However, always remember that as humans, we have our limits. And that is something we should all learn to respect. Help, extend an extra hand and time, but never ever forget that there is a limit as to your helping hand can go. Too much help may lead to dependence on you that you might end up making things worse for that person.

Father, I thank You for Your provision that allows me to help and be of service to the people around me. May I be able to continue extending a helping hand to those who need me. Send me to those whom You want me to help. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Be Generous

Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.
Matthew 10:8

Have you been blessed lately? Doesn't it feel great when we experience God's grace through His abundant blessings?

God is a generous God. He can never be outdone in generosity. And He is showering us with all the blessings that we need every day.

Without cost.

We do not need to pay for the graces we receive from Him daily. And that alone is enough reason for us to be thankful everyday. And one way that we can give back to God for all this generosity is by being generous as well.

Today, we are reminded that we are called to be generous just as God is generous. There are a lot of people who are in need today. And our mission is to spread the grace of God, in any way possible, to them.

Without cost.

Father, teach me to be generous each day. Thank You for your everlasting grace that fills me up each day. Lead me to people that I can share this blessings as well. Bless me more each day so that I can bless more as well. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Abundance overload

"Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain."
1 Kings 18:41

Is there something lacking in your life right now? Have you been praying for something for so long already and it seems like nothing is happening? Each day just seems like a drag and nothing seems new?

It may seem gloomy and dark in your life right now, but there is nothing for you to worry about. Why? It's because an overflow of blessings is coming your way!

Yes! You saw it right!


Doubtful? It's because you have allowed the mentality of lack take over your life. You have kept that in heart.

Today, God is reminding you to steer clear of this mentality of lack in your life. He is doing something that will bring about abundance in your life.

Abundance in faith... and so much more!

Trust in Him. He has great things in store for you! Keep your eyes peeled to the overflow that is coming your way. 

Who knows?

It might even come sooner than you think. 

Father, You are the source of abundant blessings. You can never be outdone in generosity. I place my trust in You that something good is coming my way today, and for the rest of my life. I claim this in Jesus' name. Amen.

Right Path

"You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at Your right hand forever."
Psalm 18:11

Do you feel stuck in your journey, thinking that you keep on walking but are headed nowhere? Do you feel lost as you tread through life?

Today, be secured in the fact that God promises that He will lead us to the right path. He is our travel buddy, our constant companion, our help in time of need. He knows the way, for He is the way. He has mapped out our days and will never leave us astray. This alone should make us feel confident to walk through life with our heads held high. Not only that, He also promises that there is great joy that goes along with following Him in the path that He leads us to walk along.

So today, choose to follow Him and reap the great rewards of having His presence in your life.

Father, I thank You for leading the way. I may feel stuck and lost, but I place my trust in You that I will never be alone in my life. I choose to follow You everyday, for in You, there is love, joy and peace. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Sleep Soundly

"In peace I shall both lie down and sleep, for You alone, Lord, make me secure."
Psalm 4:9

Heve you ever experienced difficulty in sleeping mainly because a lot has happened in the day and you just can't get your mind out of it?

It gets a bit frustrating, isn't it? No matter what you do, your mind is so bothered with a lot of things and it just wouldn't stop.

Maybe it's time for you to have a shift in your thinking. Maybe it's time to set your worries aside. 

You have done all you can throughout the day. You deserve a good night's sleep.

And that peace can only be achieved by surrendering all your concerns to God who is more than willing to take that away from you. He will give you peace of mind and heart. He promises that he will never abandon you no matter what. And that alone should remind you that you are always secure in His loving presence.

Father, I lift my concerns to you with great trust and confidence knowing that you will give me peace of mind and heart. Cover me with Your protective grace so that I can walk in confidence every day. In Jesus' name, Amen.
