Smile better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji 😊Life is better when you smile

We are heading for the long weekend in Sydney. It is Labour day on Monday. Thanks for this day off; after a heavy rainfall yesterday, the sun is out and shining every corner today.

Have you tried having a smiling face with smiling eyes? That’ fun. try now😊

I mean, it is so much better if you smile; your laugh brings such joy to your own heart and the people around you. There is so much bitterness and opposites out there that wants to stop you from your beauty. The lie of the enemy shall not hinder you, shall not limit you. You are born to rejoice. Yeah, if you travel once to Sydney, you know what a beautiful city is. I love Spring and Summer, but don’t get me wrong, all seasons are lovely in their lense. I wish I had glasses to wear and keep this beauty on my eyes and heart forever, don’t you want to? 

You can smile; just give it a try. You don’t lose anything, but you gain.

You know, we have passed three months in lockdown. I was thinking about this, we are in lockdown, but the birds are free, we are in lockdown, but the season is changing, we are in lockdown, but the world evolving so much. But one thing has never changed, at least in my life, I don’t know about you, which is we need our Creator; we need Him in our physical life and our spiritual life. His un-ending love covers are every aspect of life. Why am I ended with God always? Because he is our fountain of life. As I am typing this for you on my laptop’s keyboard, I pray in my heart that you know God of all seasons, keep the smile of heaven on your lips regardless of your situation. I am sure where you are now, whichever season you are in, you can see the beauty with your own eyes. Life is better when you smile😊- better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji. 

Write somewhere I have decided to smile from now. It doesn’t give me a good feeling only but confidence and assurance. 

Can you repeat this after me: I smile, I love, I pray, I arise, I go because, in all of this, God is with me.

Smile always.

Fill your stomach with Truth and eat the word of God

” Fill your stomach with this,” he said.

And when I ate it, it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. {Ezekiel 3 : 3]

How can we eat the word of God? No, I am not saying ‘break’ it; I am saying how to ‘ eat them’. The thought of eating the word of Truth dropped in my soul last night. Believe it or not, I was repeating Ezekiel 3 without knowing it – as a result, I searched the Bible to find the verse talks about eating the word. Here we go: 

The voice said to me, “Son of man, eat what I am giving you-eat this scroll! Then go and give its message to the people of Israel.” [Ezekiel 3:1]

We are filling our stomachs with a lot of things during our lifetime. One thing, God is asking us today to be filled with His Word and Truth. Eating the Truth means eating Jesus’s body and drinking His Blood. Let no men lie to you.

He broke the bread, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Jesus said. There is eternal life offered to us with eating Jesus and drinking his precious Blood. Let’s see how can we eat; we talked about it is crucial to have a fest of Truth. The below are some of the examples of filling our stomachs with Truth:

1- Walking with Jesus

2- Reading the Bible

3- Memorise and eat the verses daily 

3- Communion and fellowship with believers

4- Praying ( in times of need and not time of need/ all the time)

5- Talking with Jesus

6- Be with Jesus add Listen to the Holy Spirit

7- Give all our mind, heart and soul to Him 

Eating Jesus means being present actively with Him and intentionally thank him for his Truth within us. Of course, that comes with trusting that what we eat will heal us whole, and that is why drinking his Blood will wash our sinful Blood and make it pure as it goes through our veins. Our cells enjoy it, our mind appreciates it, our hearts are glad in it, and our soul is dancing with it. ” Son of man, eat what I am giving you- eat this scroll!!” Some thinking, this is a magic food, some others thinking is unreal. And they fill their stomachs with other junk stuff of this world. We had enough to be filled with the lies of enemies—enough travelling in the desert without water. We read and listen to the word of Truth now. We eat them and enjoy having everlasting life with Jesus. Carrying the Truth is our goal; this is our purpose. I mark today as a new generation’s army to fill my whole with the Truth of Christ, my saviour.

Seven Victories we have in Christ, The Heavens REJOICING with us

Seven victories we have in Christ – The Heavens rejoicing with us.

We are victorious in Christ; We won the crown of life because of Him. The bread of life gives new hope to our broken world. Most of us want to win; I mean, who doesn’t want to win? Everyone targeting the gold medal in an Olympic game – are we targeting gold in our spiritual race? In a life full of competition – and challenges- Jesus saying ” You are mine, and forever belongs to me “. 

Some of the challenges we are facing in life:

Challange of health 

Challenge of financial 

Challange of spiritual 

Challange of faith

Challange of marriage 

Challange of family 

Challange of study

Challange of work

You name any challenges, diseases, or anything that brings us down – do not worry – Jesus has already given us Victory. We may face those challenges as humans – indeed, we need to face them, not escape them! So write down your challenges on a paper- write all of them. They may not be those I mentioned above- note whatever you are experiencing and keeps you slow to move. Lay it down the paper inside your Bible. Start to declare the seven below Victory over each challenge. 

Jesus said:” Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” [ Revelation 1: 17 ]

1- The Victory of to eat from the tree of life, which is the paradise of God

To eat a tree which is life, A forever life? That would be a dream come true. This Victory is mine because of Jesus- if I obey and stay endured till the end. I repent and do the things I did at first, to love God with whole my heart. This Victory is the paradise of God, as John described in his writings in the book of revelations. 

2- The Victory of a new name, a white stone and the hidden manna 

There are three victories in this one for you. 

I am going to have a new name. I am going to receive a white stone. I am receiving the hidden manna. It does not matter what the challenge is; God gave me a new name. The old broken of me will be out, and the new of me will be born. A white stone means you are forgiven, and the blood of Jesus wipes your sins. The hidden manna – Jesus himself will be yours. And nothing compares when Jesus is yours, your sins are wiped with a new name given to you- what else do you want? 

But this is not stopping here- you got more victories ahead.

3- The Victory of the morning star

Bright and light – Like Jesus himself- as you reign with Jesus – He gives you authority as Jesus received from the Father. Your Victory continues to flourish if you do his will to the end. This time the morning star is yours. The son of God – gave Himself as the morning star without a doubt. When you have this Victory – you can have joy in you that there is no challenge of today or tomorrow will stand. Instead, you won the race and the life; you are the morning star- nothing like our broken language can define this. Write off one challenge and write it down this: “I am the morning star- belongs to Jesus.”

4- The Victory of dressing in white, name on the book of life

You are a bride – dressed in white- clean and beautiful, fresh for a new life with him. You will walk with the heavenly groom – Jesus, the lamb of God. What an honour – what a privilege! What a tremendous victory we have in him? Wow- we are the bride of Jesus. Oooof, our name is written in the book of life. I am not sure – if this does not bring you joy, what else would?

5- The Victory of a pillar in the temple of God

You are a pillar in the temple of the living God. You are his only one. Keep the house of the Lord firm because he trusts you. Tell to the challenge: ” I am the pillar of my most high God.” You are planted firmly in the house of the Lord for His purposes. Noting can move you around, not the memory of the past and not the event of today or tomorrow. 

6-The Victory of reigning with Jesus 

As we continue to seek and obey the Lord till the end, Jesus has given us a victory to sit with him on his throne. There is a space for you. There is a throne for you. There is a reigning with Jesus waiting for you. No need to struggle – we are the heir of Jesus. This short time on earth prepares me to reign with Him- have this joy in your heart. I’ve got my Victory in Him.

7-The Victory of receiving the crown of life/ saved by His Grace

The crown life is not easy to have- or by definition, buying it cheap from somewhere! The heavenly Father gave this crown to His people. In an Olympic game, athletes bring their best to win the Gold medal. I saw they were crying when they won the Gold medal- many years of practice and discipline got them there to show the world – now they are the best. How much we need to be glad – when we won the crown of life in heaven! You do your best- you do prayer, you do whatever you can to win it. Put it in perspective – see things by faith, no sight. Love yours and the people around you, be kind to yours and anyone you are facing in your life. See good things in others and let your word and action be as clear as day.

******

The journey seems challenging and complicated – we have a life on earth to do. By knowing that you are a winner, still, you are waiting to receive the trophy. 

The attribute of a winner is listed below:

1- Be strong in the face of challenges

2- Have endurance in the face of the unknown

3- Keep on believing in the broken world

4- Let Faith arises in you

5- Be full of hope

6- Let kindness overflows from you

7- Pray continually as your peace shining to others, inside out

8- Be Holy and seek God’s face every single day

9- Be committed and consistence 

10- The Victories is yours
