The Brevity of Life

You could be planning your wedding yesterday, and tomorrow the wedding of your child. It may seem like you were only formed in your mother’s womb yesterday, and tomorrow, your friends are mourning your demise. The world did not know of your existence yesterday, and tomorrow, it’ll forget that you were ever born.  This is the brevity of life, the fact that we may die today or tomorrow – life is not just uncertain, it can be short and very […]

Faith-wrestling Matches

Do you possess a heart that’s being challenged and changed under the weight of what you don’t yet understand? It could be expectations that automatically come from your thought process without conscious effort – like when we see the eastern sky grow orange-pink, we expect sunrise soon.  When flaws in our logic or biasness arise, such expectations may be incorrect. When they’re not met, we blame someone or something even if our expectations were unreasonable, and pain ensues.  Managing our […]

Not Sympathy, But Faith!

Have you struggled with how God had let you down? Where was He when you needed Him? When everything kept disintegrating, why did it seem like it didn’t matter what you did? Maybe something as simple as buying petrol is stressful as prices keep rising. Things aren’t as they should be, life isn’t as stable as before when you thought the insurance was forthcoming.  ‘Jesus turning to them, said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for […]

Thirst No More!

Many of us are familiar with Psalm 42:1-2, ‘As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You. O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?’ Paul tells us, ‘For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face’ (1 Corinthians 13:12). When we can finally ‘come and appear before God’ and see the face of God, it’ll be an incredible moment. […]

Holy Spirit, Revive Us!

Our personal commitment to God is revival, and the winning of souls must be at the heart of the Christian. From the beginning, the plan for a Saviour to be born was in place. Through the crucified Christ, He purchased for Himself a body of believers who will manifest what salvation looks like. When we’re consumed by this fervent advocacy of the Good News, whether we’re planting, watering or reaping (1 Corinthians 3:6-8), God will bring forth fruit to His […]

I Believe!

As we cross into 2022, have you considered what should capture your heart and mind, what inspires you, and what are the possibilities for you in Christ? We often start with a list of goals with most of them unfinished by year-end as they’re either too vague, based on what someone said, or not realistic plans to achieve. Some may ask if God will speak to you, and I want you to know He does. He may speak to you […]

An Awakening!

I read this somewhere and it resonated within me, ‘The demise of being prepared is an empty barn, the fixation to be prepared is a choice of the better, and the arsenal to receive more is preparedness!’ More than ever, I’ve never felt a greater need for an awakening in the community and society than at a time like this. Living for the last six decades, witnessing change, economic progress, and shifting values – the very foundation of our way […]

Power Of Your Witness!

As much as ideas change people, where advertising, mass marketing, and communication have been most successful, people change people, and that is really the strongest influencing force. This week, we’ve our WoW! Conference for women from 14 nations with over 88 churches. We chose the theme ‘Women of Witness’ because the power of personality is often greater than the idea itself. In its latest online advertising campaign, Shopee engaged mega movie star Jackie Chan as its brand ambassador, believing the […]

God says, “Ask of Me”

In the last week of July, we convened our annual Cornerstone Global Network Conference with 23 countries from 5 continents meeting across the online platform. This global Covid pandemic has thrust us into this engagement, and God should have His way in this pandemic season. Psalm 2:8 declares, “Ask, and I will give you all the nations; the whole earth will be yours.”Another version says, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, And the […]

Man Enough For Fatherhood

Evangelist Billy Graham once said, “A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” Pastor Larry Stockstill, Senior Pastor of Bethany Church in Baton Rouge for 30 years, said, “Fathering is not just a role, it’s a foundation.” This weekend, we celebrate Father’s Day and fatherhood. A day to honour and commemorate our fathers, to inspire fatherhood and maximise the blessings that fatherhood brings. In my lifetime, […]
