How to Walk on Water

For many years I have taken the bible story of Jesus walking on water in Matthew 14:22-33 for its literal meaning. Yes, I knew that it was a perfect example of faith; we can do anything once we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, as a young Christian I thought that “walking on water” really meant – walking on water. How can anyone have so much faith that they can actually walk on water? How can one’s faith be so big to move mountains? How can one’s faith destroy giants? How can one’s faith overcome the deadly poison of a serpent?   As I matured in Christianity, I realized that I was living a pipe dream. Water, mountains, Goliaths and serpents, just to name a few, seemed to be unbeatable adversaries....

Pray Boldly

Are we still praying the way our parents taught us when we were the age of three? Have we become complacent in the way we pray? Our payers, over time have become safe, unspecific and repetitive. In our prayer life, we have become lazy when we just simply utter prayers like “God, bless my family and friends” or “Thank you Lord for the day”.

Are you thanking Him for the ability to walk, talk or see? When we pray general prayers, we just simply benefit from general answers. Some of you would just leap out of your beds to kneel and...

The Den Isn’t Always filled with Lions

Many times in our lives, we may feel that all is lost. However, the story of Daniel in the lion's den tells us about the fulfillment of God's promises and the rewards to be received through faithfulness.   King Darius was the ruler of Babylon and had appointed several men to assist him in the governing of the kingdom. Daniel, who was appointed to be the leader of the advisors, was a man who believed in the God of Israel and followed His commandments. For this, the other men despised Daniel and wanted to destroy him.   The men plotted against Daniel. They told King Darius to make a new law that would put to death anyone who worshiped or prayed to other gods other than the king. If someone was caught doing this,...

Be Not Afraid

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). So many of us are just afraid. We are afraid of the dark; we are afraid to be alone; we are afraid of not being loved; and the list can go on.   When would we stop being afraid? Would we stop being afraid when we are old and gray and could hardly move? What is preventing us from applying for another job when we know that our current job is a dead end one; what is preventing us from releasing ourselves from an unhealthy relationship or marriage when we know it only causes unhappiness; what is preventing us from exploring new and uncharted possibilities that can significantly change...
