Every tomorrow is a new invitation to beautiful possibilities


Every tomorrow is a new invitation to beautiful possibilities.

‘I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will…go in…and find pasture.’ John 10:9

Dear God, being under the salvation by Christ Jesus, I do hope I can become like him
putting my own will aside to do your will, every day.
Please enable me to be a worthy Christian.

Alive To God – Daily Thought – Ogen, hart en ziel op God gericht

Our eyes and heart should be on the Most High divine Creator.
Onze ogen, hart en ziel horen op de Allerhoogste Goddelijke Schepper gericht te zijn.

Alive to God



ENGLISH

2 Kings 3:18

‘But this is only a simple thing for the LORD, for He will make you victorious… ’

  • We should never limit the Lord to what we think He can do.
  • What may seem impossible to us can be a simple and easy thing for the Lord to do.
  • His desire is that we would walk in victory and not in defeat.
  • Look at you problems and see them for the Lord’s perspective.

Prayer: Lord, You are great and You do miracles so great. There is no one else like you, so I will trust You with my challenges and difficulties and I will believe that they are easy things for You to solve. Amen.

Unbelief, faith and mustard seed

“and Jesus said to them, because of your unbelief: for verily I say to you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard-seed, ye shall say to this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.” (Matthew 17:20 Webster)“Jesus answered and said to them, verily I say to you, if ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which is done] to the fig-tree, but also, if ye shall say to this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.” (Matthew 21:21 Webster)

“22 and Jesus answering, saith to them, have faith in god. 23 for verily I say to you, that whoever shall say to this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that the things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he saith.” (Mark 11:22-23 Webster)

“and the lord said, if ye had faith as a grain of mustard-seed, ye might say to this sycamine-tree, be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it would obey you.” (Luke 17:6 Webster)

“Jesus saith to her, said I not to thee, that if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of god?” (John 11:40 Webster)

“and though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” (1 Corinthians 13:2 Webster)

“brethren, be not children in understanding: yet in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.” (1 Corinthians 14:20 Webster)

“as new-born babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” (1 Peter 2:2 Webster)
