Humility

Episode 1372 • Angus Buchan

Moses was one of the most courageous men of the Old Testament and yet he was one of the most humble. Humility is not weakness but measured strength. You don’t have to defend yourself, let God defend you and keep going forward.

The land of milk and honey

Episode 1371 • Angus Buchan

How big is God? He is as big as you will allow Him to be. That means that even though your situation seems impossible and the future looks bleak, nothing is too hard for God. Try not to focus on all the negatives but rather trust God to deliver you into the promised land where you will realise your dreams.

Charity begins at home

Episode 1370 • Angus Buchan

So many people who love Jesus and are serving Him, spend so much time and energy on helping others that their own family often suffers. Charity begins at home. That means start by giving of yourself, your time, your money, your love and your guidance to those closest to you and then reach out to others who need help.

Practical vision

Episode 1369 • Angus Buchan

We all need a vision to aim for in our life. Pray and ask God to illuminate to you what your vision should be and then set about realising that vision. We need to pray and ask God for a practical vision, one that is attainable and then make it real. Throughout your Christian walk you should be striving towards a goal or a vision which God has given you.

Revival

Episode 1368 • Angus Buchan

God expects us to be spiritually mature and people of integrity both in the way we live and in spiritual matters. If someone professes to be a Christian but behaves in a way that does not glorify God then they need to be challenged. That does not mean having a holier than thou attitude but rather that you, in love, bring their error to their attention and help them to do the right and Godly thing.

A lazy man

Episode 1367 • Angus Buchan

Angus refers to 2 Thessalonians 3:8-10 and explains that as born again believers, we need to earn a living and not be a burden to others. Rather than being a burden to the church, Paul the apostle and the other disciples earned their keep and supported themselves while living and preaching the Gospel. God wants us all to be like them so that we can be a blessing to others. Parents need to provide for their children and love them and set an example for them to follow. Don’t be a lazy person.

Obey the law

Episode 1366 • Angus Buchan

God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses for the sake of mankind and not for His own sake because He is holy and knows no sin. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament and proves to us that God has kept His promises. Everyone has to obey the law of the land or face the consequences and it’s the same with God’s law. Stay away from sin and try to live a holy life pleasing unto God.

Let your light shine

Episode 1365 • Angus Buchan

The darker the world becomes around us the more we should let the light of the Lord Jesus Christ shine through us. The peace of God that passes all understanding is what everybody is looking for. As believers, we need to be separate from the world in order that they will want what we have. So let your light shine today and be a blessing to others.

Ebenezer

Episode 1364 • Angus Buchan

1 Samuel Chapter 7:11 is today’s reading. Have you ever set up a memorial? We need to remember the Lord being with us and thank Him. Like Samuel who placed a stone to remember what God had done, we need to remember where we came from with thanksgiving.

Spiritual integrity

Episode 1363 • Angus Buchan

God expects us to be spiritually mature and people of integrity both in the way we live and in spiritual matters. If someone professes to be a Christian but behaves in a way that does not glorify God then they need to be challenged. That does not mean having a holier than thou attitude but rather that you, in love, bring their error to their attention and help them to do the right and Godly thing.

God's standards

Episode 1362 • Angus Buchan

It is impossible to keep to God’s standards in our own strength. We may try to keep the ten commandments but we slip up and sin. It is only with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit that we can have any hope of living a Godly life.

Word of truth

Episode 1361 • Angus Buchan

There is immense power in our words. We say things in anger that we don’t really mean and it can cause hurt to others, especially those we love. If you’re having a challenging day and something goes wrong, try counting to ten in your head before opening your mouth. Give yourself a chance to calm down rather than tackling the problem head on. Once you say something the words are out there and you can’t take them back so always tell the the truth in love and guard your tongue.

The heavenly escort

Episode 1360 • Angus Buchan

Some of you are feeling lonely and afraid today. Angus reads from Genesis 28:15. God doesn’t always choose the powerful, the strong and the talented. Wherever the Lord sends you, He goes before you. The Lord always makes a way. Put your trust in Jesus.

Facing trials

Episode 1359 • Angus Buchan

People are living in perilous times all over the world. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord will deliver us from them all. Jesus told us that in this world we will have tribulation but we are to take heart because He has overcome the world. God provides us with strength for the strain. God will not forsake you nor desert you.

Restitution

Episode 1358 • Angus Buchan

Restitution means restoration of something stolen, back to its proper owner. God knows every secret in your heart. Don’t leave something undone that you need to deal with. You need to be honest so that God can bless you. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit is convicting you of something in your life, you need to obey and put it right today.
