He restores.

Did you hear about or see the ‘clean up’ work that went on around KZN after the riots and looting? I was thrilled to see people of different colours and backgrounds cleaning alongside each other. This was a glimpse of restoration, and hope of things to come.

Psalm 126 (https://bit.ly/3qCLl1U)

Here Israel rejoices that the Lord brought restoration of what had been taken and lost. He outdid their beliefs and expectations.

It is the Lord who restores.
He has done great things for us.

May we boldly ask Him to bring restoration like streams in the desert (v4) across South Africa.

Our Help.

I watched in shock and horror video footage of the looting and destruction going on in areas of KZN I know well that I had called home. Have you seen or experienced the same where you live? It can make us feel like God is M.I.A

Read Psalm 124 (https://bit.ly/3CUziQG)
“If the Lord had not been on our side.” V1.

The truth is that God is on our side.
“Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” V8.

Talk to Him about where you need Him to be on your side.
Your help is in Him.

Look up.

Have you ever been hiking in the ‘Berg or up Table Mountain?
Even just looking up at a mountain gives me a sense of awe of our Creator! However, the views from the top are breath-taking!

Psalm 121 (https://bit.ly/3nQUYXM)

This Psalm is about looking up, ascending a mountain hence the title “Psalm of ascent”.
Here our Creator Lord is our Help, our Keeper. He watches over us in all our ways, our comings, and goings. He is protective over us, not resting or sleeping.

Will you look upwards to Him?
Acknowledge Him as your Keeper, your help?

#The-Great-White

We have a multi-purpose vehicle that we call “The Great White” (because it’s white and it’s a great car). It’s powerful enough to tow a house, seats fold in to become a Bakkie, warns you when you’re exceeding the speed limit AND is a fuel fairy – all this packaged in an ordinary looking station wagon.

“When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John, and could see that they were obviously uneducated non-professionals, they were amazed and realised what being with Jesus had done for them!” Acts 4:13 (https://bit.ly/3aLlo70).

When you get close to Jesus, He rubs off on you. You become ruined for the ordinary, developing a likeness to Him.
