Beyond Limits

When faith is pushed to the limit of our endurance and we keep going, in a humbled state of ‘not I but Christ’ (having nothing left to give) we enter God’s unlimited sphere.

Here we break the ‘sound barrier like a super-sonic jet’ and smoothly accelerate forward powered by His mighty Wind.

‘Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience.’ Colossians 1:11

‘I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.’ Galatians 2:20

‘God gives the Spirit without limit’. John 3:34

Lost Light

Comparing ourselves to others will steal our unique identity.


By this behaviour, common to all, the shadow of idolatry
darkens God’s revelation-light from our lives.

This leaves us barren of knowing who we really are
and what our true purpose on earth is.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.”


He is also your revelation-light today!

Who are you listening to?

A  person goes to Jesus and asks, ‘how am I doing today?

Jesus replies, ‘you are the apple of my eye. I love you, good and faithful friend.’

The person then goes to the devil and asks the same question.

The devil replies, ‘you’re nothing. Everything you’re doing is useless. You may as well give up now!’

Who are you listening to today?

Redford on success

“Success has a dangerous side to it, something that I have been aware of my whole life,” said the Oscar-winning star.

“You don’t embrace it, so much as shadow-box with it.

In reaching for the money, you can lose yourself.

So I always pay attention to who we are, who we were and who we try to stay being.

And at the same time, to welcome success but use it wisely, rather than poorly.”
