“Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.” 1 Peter 1:17


Reverent fear of God is an understanding that God owns tomorrow. And if He is your Father, you will one day return to Him and rest in Him.


As a child of your Heavenly Father, there is a promise for you in Isaiah 43:1 that you have been redeemed by God, that He called you by name and you are His. What does it mean to belong to God? Once Christ purchases us with His Blood, we become aliens here on earth and there is a barrier between us and everything here in this world. What does this mean?


As a channel of love, obedience and humility, you are a servant of Christ and a stranger in this world. This is because we are spirit beings living in the physical body, learning to live in a natural world dominated by satan.

 “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.” 1 Peter 2:11


The only way you can say no to sin and yes to righteousness is when you submit your will to God’s will. Then you truly become a servant of Christ and a stranger here on earth. You would not say what Jesus would not want to hear, you would not go where Jesus would not be welcomed – where love, obedience, humility would not be welcomed.


Help me oh Lord to turn away from that which has the power to turn me away from You, in Jesus’ name!



“It took God one night to deliver the Israelites physically from 400 years of captivity but it took 40 years to deliver their hearts from captivity. For some, they never let go. You may have stopped your bad habits on the outside but is your heart still yearning for them? If you have decided to follow Jesus and you mean it, don’t look back! Look to God alone. You cannot discover new oceans if you do not lose sight of the shore.”


“There is nothing God created that He cannot command, control or instruct, and can turn people’s hearts to favour you. Solomon was made wealthy by God as God brought people from all over to bless him. God can use anything to speak to you, to preserve you and protect you for His purpose. So, never doubt that God can move mountains to bring to pass His purpose in your life. He is able to do more than you could ask or imagine because He is a living God and His resources are infinite.”


“Jesus is the One looking for you. He is looking for your attention. All around you are signs calling you to get back to God. That is why the heartbeat of the Gospel is the call to repentance – so you can be consecrated and reconciled to your Creator. Have you consecrated your heart to Him?”
