I heard Him Say… “See, Stop, but Believe.”

After a busy weekend at work, and an awesome time in God’s presence at church last night… I came home, hungry for more time with the Father, and for the first time in a long time He started talking again. Not that I didn’t seek Him, not that I don’t start every day and end […]

Clothed with the Sacrifice

It is sooo special how God work with us and talk to us, preparing our minds gently to drop revelation when the time is right… A while ago I was led to think of a “Place”, deeply thinking of “A place of being.” We sing songs of “God fill this place”, we pray prayers of […]

Be Carriers… of His Character

Part 1 of this post was “Carrying God’s presence”; God’s presence is a place of being, not only a place of experience. God demands a permanent residence in our being, for us to be carriers of His presence and not a visitation when we find time to do so.  We are in His creation; this […]

Be Carriers… of His Presence.

My last few weeks of meditation was mostly about the fear of God… “Choose your fear”; it is a topic that comes up quite often in my devoted time, do we really and deeply understand what this is all about? It’s not a trembling fear, but rather a fear of reverence and awe found in […]

Exit towards the Entrance

Earlier this year I had to collect something from a warehouse. What may have appeared as quite a strict access-controlled area didn’t really have any control, except for gates opening by the pressing of buttons. There was a huge access gate at the entrance of the office park in which the warehouse is located… very […]

“And just like that…”

I spent a lot of time in John 17 the last month… “When Jesus Prays” … WOW, it is beautiful, it started with a thought of “Jesus, at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for us” (Romans 8:34), and John 17 is one place I know where it is recorded when Jesus prayed […]

I CHOOSE LIFE!!!

Godly Conversations; Another late night with my dear friend and brother in Christ, which could go on for another few hours, but rushing against a curfew had it cut short. A while ago God had me busy with “Capacity”, it was still in progress when it was placed in the “Parked” folder as another topic […]

Don’t go there

I am a numbers guys; it comes naturally and quite handy in the industry I am working in… I can spot a trend and will apply brakes to a downward trend or accelerate to ride the momentum of an upward trend. Both have different characteristics and should be planned for differently. Importantly, you need to […]

“Just a little longer… just a minute or so…”

It is winter in South Africa, and we had very cold temperatures the past 2 weeks. I am not a winter person… I generally love the outdoors, and will spend most of my time outside, but saying that, I also don’t like warming mechanisms; I will never have a warm water bottle or an electric […]

Godly conversations lead to Godly Revelations

I met a friend last year August (2020) at a small church I started attending in the middle of the lockdown, most churches were still closed. We had quite a few underground secret church services, hungry people, seeking God’s face. Can you believe we had to attend church in secret…? Some countries probably still do… […]

If God is for us…

I grew up in the 1980‘s – 1990’s, in Boksburg, a suburb just outside of Johannesburg, in South Africa. I was fortunate to be raised by God-fearing parents. Even though my younger brother and I were very naughty through our teens and early twenties, God was always in awareness, never the center of our being, […]

Unfamiliar places

I love road trips, I generally enjoy driving around in areas that is not in my neighborhood… I will very seldom say no if you ask me to drive somewhere outside of my daily routine of driving. I agreed to help a friend to collect a shipment expected from China a few months back in […]

2020… The year of attending to cracks

I recently went to the Natal south coast (in South Africa) for a quick break, the intent was to reflect on 2020, and to seek and align my mind with God’s vision for 2021. I have huge excitement and expectations for the year to come, there are new ventures on the horizon, this after a […]

I heard Him saying… “Look at Me… Just, Look at Me…”

My laptop’s screen broke… YES, my parents also told me not to play with balls in the house when I grew up, but if you have a serious contentious wrestling match with your 9 year old daughter, you need to throw a soccer ball in the attempt to get away from a death grip… it […]

#ItsNotAboutUs – Crumb 5 – “Seek thy first…”

A few questions I asked myself and some friends over the last week… Do we get familiar with God’s presence? Is knowing He is around enough? How much time with God is enough time? What is the quality of this time? I have a friend that keeps telling me to not let the hunger dry […]

#ItsNotAboutUs – Crumb 4 – Stop Doing

In Crumb 2 I explained about what I experience as Silent Battles, one of these battles were to “Let Go.” It is not as much a battle against the enemy, rather a battle against ourselves. It was probably the main battle I was fighting. Seeing a once “perfect” life slipping away, a life that lacked […]

#ItsNotAboutUs – Crumb 3 – Missing Pieces

In November 2018 I went to Saudi Arabia for a 2-year contract with automatic renewal. In August 2019 my life took a turn (Crumb 2). I returned to South Africa to gather the pieces. Jeremiah 29:13-14, amongst other confirmations from the Holy Spirit, got me to the point of returning to South Africa. It was […]

#ItsNotAboutUs – Crumb 2 – Silent Battles

My life shattered into pieces exactly a year ago, August 2019. Dreams were destroyed, plans were squashed, life as I knew it was ripped out under my feet. I fought and I gave up, I got back up, fought again and gave up again, repeatedly… God entered my life without an invitation (God doesn’t need […]

#ItsNotAboutUs – Crumb 1 – In the Beginning

In the beginning God created heaven and earth. God then created man, in His own image, to rule over earth and every living creature in it. (Gen 1) Man did not resist the devil and it’s own desires. Man died to sin and lost dominion over creation. God brought the law to correct Man’s way, […]

When God is late…

In Acts 1 Jesus commanded the Apostles to wait on the Holy Spirit, they asked Jesus if this will be the time that He will restore His Kingdom to Israel and he answered “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Isaiah […]
