Listen to A Word for Today
JESUS – THE MOST BEAUTIFUL NAME
We all know from experience what power a name can have. It can arouse warm feelings in us if it happens to be the name of someone we love. Or it can awaken fear and dread in our hearts. Or, if it’s the name of someone rich and influential, it can open doors for us that would otherwise be closed. This meditation tells about the most beautiful and powerful of all names, and what that name can mean for us if we call upon it.
JESUS, LORD TO LOVE YOU ONLY
Because God is a loving Father, He wants His children to be happy and joyful. But perhaps your life is lacking joy. You know someone who really is happy – who seems to have an inner spiritual wealth, and you’ve discovered that it’s love for Jesus that makes him so happy. – How can I find this love for my life? – This meditation will show us the answer.
PRAYING IN TIMES OF DROUGHT
Don’t we all know times when our prayers seem to bounce off the walls, when they don’t seem to reach God? At such times we are tempted to lose faith, to wonder if God really is alive and we’re even tempted to quit praying altogether! If you have stopped praying for this reason, this meditation can bring you comfort and practical help.
A FRUITFUL LIFE
Without a doubt there have been times in your life when you couldn’t see God at work. Perhaps someone opposed you and humiliated you. Perhaps your wishes were denied or your plans thwarted. And you wondered: “Why does this have to happen to me? Where is God? Why doesn’t He intervene? The answer to these questions is in this meditation, a personal testimony from the life of Basilea Schlink.
THE GOAL OF THE FATHER’S LOVE
In His fatherly love for us, God has prepared a heavenly city where we may live with Him forever. This is the goal for which the Bible tells us we should be striving. But perhaps heaven isn’t real for you? You can’t even relate to the word, ‘heaven’, let alone strive to reach it? Listen to this meditation, called The Goal of the Father’s Love.
LOVE IS FOR EVERYONE
He is a God of love and He wants very much to mold each one of us into the image of His love. Isn’t this what we all need? When we can love those around us our hearts are at peace and we are truly happy. We make others happy, too. But perhaps you ask yourself: “How can I become really loving? I just don’t have it in me! – Listen to the answer in this meditation, called Love Is for Everyone.
THE WAY TO HEAVEN
God wants His children to be happy – and, isn’t that what we want too? Don’t we all long for a little bit of heaven in our life on earth? Perhaps you’re one of those who have been searching for happiness, who have tried almost everything, but have only been disappointed. This meditation is about a way that is guaranteed to bring you joy.
THE GIFT OF HIS LOVE
In different ways throughout the Bible we read that He is a joyous God who wants us to be joyous too. For example, the psalms tell us to make a joyful noise to the Lord, and to serve Him with gladness. But perhaps your life is lacking joy. This is precisely the moment when God can intervene and give you His love and joy.
BUT DO I REALLY?
Perhaps you don’t see God at work in your life or in the lives of the people around you. You wonder why there’s no victory in your life and why your prayers don’t ever seem to get an answer. Perhaps you wonder if God really has the power to work miracles today. This meditation tells about someone who did find victory.
ALONE WITH GOD
God loves us and He wants to have a personal relationship of love with each one of us. We can only hear God’s voice when everything is quiet – within us and around us. This meditation is a testimony from the life of Basilea Schlink. It will show us what can happen when we’re willing to take the time to seek quietness and listen to Him.
