Welcome...

Whoever you are and wherever you are on this beautiful ball we call ‘Earth' I want to connect with you and let you know that you matter to God and to me.

There is a war raging in the unseen realm for your soul - a war between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, between good and evil, between truth and error and between life and death.

In Luke 10:29 a lawyer asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbour?" In response, Jesus tells of a priest and a Levite, who seeing a man robbed and injured by thieves and left to die on the side of a road, passed him by. In contrast, a Samaritan, showed compassion and not only stopped to help him but took him to an inn to be cared for. A neighbour, according to Jesus, is one who shows mercy on those in need and does not pass them by.

More than a decade ago God inspired me to write ‘Dear Neighbour' letters. My prayer is that my words will bring hope and healing to all but especially to those who find themselves in spiritual need alongside the road of life. God has been so good to me and it is my privilege to direct your thoughts to Jesus, the lover of your soul.

You are my neighbour and I will not pass you by.

DEAR NEIGHBOUR LETTERS

God will never leave you nor forsake you
Tuesday, 07 June 2016 07:19

Dear Neighbour,

Recently I went to bed early and briefly watched Christian TV. Jimmy Evans and his wife, Karen, have a marriage ministry and he shared the following scripture:

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU." (Hebrews 13:4,5)

Jimmy explained that to “leave” within the marriage context means “to walk away with your feet” i.e. to physically leave the marriage. But to “forsake” within the marriage context means “to turn your heart away” from one’s spouse, i.e. to emotionally abandon the relationship. I have known this scripture for many years but had never understood the separate meanings of the two words. If God uses two different words He has a good reason and wants us to understand something about Him.

This explains why there are many marriages where couples are still physically living together but the coldness within the relationship is because their hearts have turned away from each other. As believers, we are married to the Lord, and it is possible to be physically present in church but have hearts which have turned away from Him.

I understood what Jimmy was saying because for my whole adult life my parents had “forsaken” me by turning their hearts away from me. They loved me but wanted my happiness to come exclusively from them and were opposed to my relationship with Jesus and Jan and consequently rejected me. Ultimately, it led to disinheritance. God reminded me of the Scripture:

When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me (Psalm 27:10).

I knew that I had received a specific word from God and even called Jan to share it with him. I told him that God had just told me that He would never walk away from me and He would never turn His heart away from me! I felt overwhelmed by the revelation and immediately hid it in my heart. Less than two hours later I dislocated my hip while getting out of bed to go to the bathroom.

This “treasure” was what I meditated on during my hour-long ambulance trip to PE. On Saturday I realized that this was the first dislocation that I had never cried. I usually cry from shock, pain,fear and frustration – but this time was different – I knew God was not only with me physically but also emotionally supporting me during my crisis.

Remember that God had to “forsake” – turn His heart away from His only Son as He bore our sin upon the cross – SO THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORSAKEN! Take a moment to let that thought sink into your heart. No-one will ever love you more than God.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?" (Matthew 27:46).

Turn your heart towards Jesus, believe that He died and rose again so that you could become a forgiven, righteous child of God -  and rejoice in the knowledge that God will never physically leave you nor emotionally abandon you! That is news worth celebrating!

May you have a truly blessed day.

P.S. If you are married, give your spouse a hug and ask God to help you never to turn your heart away from them!

 
God's Recipe for your Life

Cake

Dear Neighbour,

Have you noticed how recipe books contain predominantly photographs of the end product? This fact serves an important purpose: the magnificent images are designed to inspire us to open our pantries and fill our kitchen counters with the myriad of ingredients that will be needed in order to re-create what we have seen with our eyes.

In the same way, God has a glorious final image of your life in His mind. You are destined to be like Jesus Christ, God’s Son. The following two versions of the same scripture confirm this fact:

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren (Romans 8:29 ESV).

 
The Missing 'R' Word

Dear Neighbour,

Happy New Year to all my readers! With a new year comes the opportunity to step back from our lives and assess the past year and make plans for the next twelve months. Jan and I have plans for 2015 but we always add the words “God willing” to our plans as we want to ensure that we are in the centre of God’s will. We live in a turbulent world and the only security available to man is in Jesus Christ. God brought to my attention recently that there is an infallible way to ensure that all is well with your soul – it is to be found in the ‘R’ word – a word that is missing from our vocabulary...

 
What have you asked of God lately?

drawing a line in the sand

Dear Neighbour,

In late 2010, over a period of a few months, I repeatedly felt the word “ASK” come up in my spirit. I was confused as I felt that God was prompting me to ask Him for something – but I didn’t know what! I remember talking to Him and saying that I was praying for other people and I regularly prayed for my own health...

 
God's Indescribable Gift To You

Dear Neighbour,

Jan and I have adopted the American tradition of Thanksgiving but we celebrate it in South African style with less emphasis on the food and more on the opportunity it gives us with our friends to express our gratitude to God for his many blessings during the past year. So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations (Psalm 79:13)...
