Ephesians 6:13

Read: Ephesians 6:13

Christians need to arm themselves with “the whole armour of God” for their “adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Our enemies are more than flesh and blood. In Ephesians 6:12, Paul says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places...


Psalm 37:3

Read: Psalm 37:3

Genuine piety is enthusiastically encouraged here. The counsel given in Psalm 37 is an excellent antidote to dull, bogus piety that characterises a large number of professing Christians of our time. True piety is not cold and impassive. It is vibrant in its operation and cheerfully optimistic.

A man of genuine piety, first of all, is one who trusts the LORD. With unwavering faith, he relies on the LORD. His heart is wholly fixed upon the LORD. In the midst of adversity, hostility and calamity, he trusts in the LORD that He “is able to do exceeding abundantly...

Read: 1 Corinthians 10:13c

In 1 Corinthians 10:13, three major divine promises are given to comfort and to strengthen Christians who are encountering temptations and trials in their lives. The first promise is that God would not permit any temptation that is uncommon to man to befall His people. The second promise is that our faithful God will not allow us to be tempted above that we are able. The third promise is the focus of our devotion today; it assures us that along with the temptation, God will make a way for us to escape so that it will not be unbearable to us...


Psalm 40:2

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 10 June 2017

Read: Psalm 40:2

The first part of Psalm 40, where the verse for today’s meditation is found, is about giving thanks to God for the deliverance and stability which the LORD has graciously provided for His servant. Gratefully, the psalmist says, “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.” Are you mindful to remember and praise God for the deliverance He has given to you in your life? What has the LORD done for you? Recount the recent deliverance that God has granted you in answer to your prayers...


John 11:26

Read: John 11:26

Those are Jesus’ words to Martha, who was grieving over the death of her brother, Lazarus. Although four days had passed since Lazarus was buried (v.39), Martha and Mary were still in anguish of heart. Jesus assured her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" (v.25). Jesus then roused her soul, with the words of our verse: “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” Just as in Martha’s case, these words of Christ offer great peace and comfort for anyone who is bereaving over a departed Christian relative or friend...


Ephesians 6:17

Read: Ephesians 6:17

The fifth piece of armour that God has given to Christians for their spiritual battle is “the helmet of salvation”. The helmet protected the head, the most vital and most often targeted part of the soldier’s body. Scarcely would a warrior rush off to battle without taking his helmet with him. Even modern troops always have their helmets on when they report for duty, which is all the more needful when in the thick of battle...


Psalm 95:7a

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 07 June 2017

Read: Psalm 95:7a

All who claim that God is theirs must first prove that they are truly His; and they can prove it only if, as our verse states, they are always found in His pasture and they are led by His hand. It is nothing more than a phoney claim when those who would not sojourn with God or be led by Him make claims that God is theirs.

However, to all those who truly abide in God’s pasture and rejoice in His guidance and supervision, He is an eternal inheritance unto His people. In Exodus 20:2, the Lord told Israel, “I am the LORD thy God.” In Hebrews 11:16, we read that “wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God...


Psalm 84:11b

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 06 June 2017

Read: Psalm 84:11b

The first part of this verse, which we meditated upon yesterday, taught us that “... the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory.” Since the LORD, like the sun, gives us grace and glory, we have absolutely no reason to fear that He might hold back certain good things from us. According to our text, if we walk uprightly, no good thing will He withhold...


Psalm 27:13

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 05 June 2017

Read: Psalm 27:13

This testimony of David shows how important it is for God’s children to keep their confidence and hope in the LORD’s goodness, even when they are in the midst of hostility. David was in a terrible condition of mind because of his enemies’ concerted efforts to destroy him. So he cried unto God, in the previous verse, saying, “Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty...


1 John 2:15b

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 04 June 2017

Read: 1 John 2:15b

What this verse says is that the one who unabashedly loves the world has never tasted the Father’s love. There is no ambiguity in what is stated in this verse. It is an indisputable fact that a man who continues to love the world and will not forsake it, does not have the love of God in him. Unashamed embracing of worldliness in an individual is an absolute proof that God’s love has not entered his heart...
