Sweet LOVE

My three posts in this blog are base on LOVE topic you can read it:

1- Love on the way

2- Unending love

3- God’s love = ∞

Why is love so important in our life.  I believe Love is everything. Because in the heart of our God is Love. You can melt the mountain by Love. Love breath into dead life and make it alive. Love is centre of your life. Love is like fountain that gives you fresh water. You feel alive. Love gives you life. Love gives other life too.

What is Love? Love is kind . Love is patient . Love is comfort. Love is confidence. Love is humble. Love honours others. It will rejoice to see others happiness. Love will delight in good and rejoice again with the truth. Love record the rights. Love is hope. Love is truth. Love makes and creates peace. Love is freedom.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ( 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8 )

This love never fails .

Are you with me? My dear friends He did all and more than these to us by Jesus.

Jesus is Love. And His love is yours.

If I have a perfect believe and do huge miracles and in everything be carful and do all right things but IF I do not have LOVE , I did nothing.

Love is soft.

Love is everything.

When you truly Love God and go deep in Him,  you’re changed and changing others.

Love do not mind for which type you are. Love do not separate but dresses the wounds. God is Love because He is the source of Love. His love to us never be ended. And you are loved to. because you have been formed in his love. He created you by love.

I encourage you today . Put the love of father first and ahead in your life. Is there any area in your life you need add Love. I am sure will be some area so do I . Let love of God surpass all.

Love your family . Love your wife and husband . Love your mum and dad. Love your kids. Love your city . Love God and yourself and others.

Love , Love , Love.

Psalm 119 : 73

Your hands made me and formed me;
    give me understanding to learn your commands. ( Psalm 119 : 73).

God’s hand made us to His image. We are not made to any other power or divinity or by any other thing you can think or traditions says. Psalmist says His hands made me and formed me. In Genesis we read :

Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. ( Genesis 2 : 7 ).

When God formed you, He breathed into your life , with his breath you became a living being. God did miracle instantly , He made something out of nothing. Don’t you think that His hands can protect you too?

We see the Lord never forsaken you, because you are made in His image by His hands for His purpose . If you are tired he Knows you are human because he made and formed you. If you are worry he knows still you have emotions and everything must be in order for you so He cares about you all you need is lean on Him like a new born baby and sleep sweetly!

Look at this . He gives you understanding and wisdom to hold on his truth. In the visible world you need his power to go forward, He knows you need his understanding to perceive what is good , what is right an what is sweet for your soul. That’s why David says in here that : “give me understanding to learn your commands “.

img_1432

By learning God’s love you understand of His plan in your life.  Let your heart be completed in His presence . When God made you He gave you also purpose . He gave you wisdom . He gave you a weapon( love)  to fight a good fight of faith for Him. He formed you with Love , Because God is love. He formed you strong , because He is strong.

Live a life of fun and free in Him. You are no like others. You are YOU. Nobody be like you. because you are made like Him. You are The Lord hands made. You are smelling special for Him because you are His child forever. Does not matter what you’ve done or what you are doing you are still belong to Him. You can have a relationship with Him right now and let Him be your Lord forever. He never forget you . You are like a baby sweet for Him. Father , Love you a lot .

We can not measure your hands power . We cannot comprehend your awesomeness Lord.

Father Thank you for your love and grace , thank you that your hand made and formed us .Thank you that there is power in your presence Lord , We love you not because you gave us wisdom and understanding because you loved and love us who we are . Thank you for you presence , thank you for what we have now   , thank you  for what we do not have ( because there is a wisdom) . Thank you Jesus for your great love for us. Thank you Holy Spirit that you speak to us every moment . Thank you for our country , our city , our friends , our family our neighbours. In Jesus Name Amen.

Faithfulness.

God is still faithful in any way. The world do not listen to us and we are not belong to World.  God is still on your side even the world arrest you for your righteousness. For your truth .

They arrest Jesus.

They arrest Paul.

They arrest Peter.

They arrest John.

And they will arrest you. But still God is faithful and you are going to be a witness for His glory. In all above examples:

When they arrested Jesus , the law was fulfilled and Jesus saved the world .

When they arrested Paul , the gospel went through like a swore till Rome.

When they arrested Peter and John the number of believers went up very fast , grew to about five thousand ( Acts 4 :4 ) .

IMG_1428

If there is a pain in your life  , use it as a tool to glorify Him. He knows your pain as he knew the pain of Christ on the cross but the result of being patient is fantastic and you will be rewarded the crown of life.

Your outcome more important than your Pain. Your purpose is in more priority of Your sorrow.

This will be found in Paul’s journey . He put first His saviour than His plan. This is that Paul before was following  and  killing believers.

In Matthew 26 : 47 – 56 Jesus was arrested in the garden at gethsemane. Relationship restored and The hope aroused.

In Acts 21 : 27-37  Paul was arrested in the temple. The gospel went to Asia and far around.

In Acts 4 Peter and John been was arrested in the town. The outcome 5 thousands believed.

In Acts 29 YOU and ME will be arrested by the world because of our faith.  The result is crown of life.

The world wont be able give you eternal joy. Buy in Him is complete Joy and Hope. Come still if you are in doubt and fear , come still if you are hurt , come still if you are broken. His message is love and grace for you. His presence fulfil your all need . His endurance covers your impatience mind. His wounds will heal you inside out.

God is still Faithful even we are not. God is Love even we are not. God is Kind even we are not. God is same , today , tomorrow and forever.  In your middle of darkness and confusion God is still faithful Just trust in Him.

Spring In Australia

Spring is beautiful  here in Australia . How God made this earth wonderful and created everything on the order.

God has made everything beautiful in its time. ( Ecclesiastes 3 : 11) . Australian Spring starts in September and Summer came on December. ( Yes we have Christmas party on the beach ).

God is able to teach us , to speak to us and provide for us through the nature . Nature is one the beautiful handmade of God. He is everywhere. How wonderful is he. How beautiful He is. Also you are, You are beautiful , actually everything has a label of ‘ made by God ‘ are beautiful and awesome.

In John we read “through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. ( John 1 : 3 ) “.

God made beauty inside of us. Beauty around us. Our God is a loving and beautiful God , who loves the art.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4

 

Be Bold and strong because God made you beautiful and awesome.

God’s thoughts

I had an opportunity talk about the God’s thought to my small group of people. I hope you will be blessed by this message. What are the God’s thoughts for us? How even we would know what is in God’s mind for us? What is his plan?

Before going through answering these questions we need to know that , we can go around and explain what is , what is not. It is easy for us to play with words.  If we want know God’s thought , the first easy step to knowing it is to know his word. What God’s word says? for this very reason we go to the Holy Bible .

Bible is written by over 40 authors throughout the century . But as we know the main author of the bible is The Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit is one of the person in Trinity.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts. ( Isaiah 55: 8-9)

three things we can see in those verses which are:

1- God is infinite and we are finite

2- God knows the end from the beginning

3- God knows the why and we only receiving the wisdom

Although it is hard to understanding of God’s thoughts but his mercy and love and His promises are open for us.

God's thoughts

God promised us to not leave us alone with confusion. We read :

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.( Philippians 4 :4-7) 

In those verse God promised us to give us strengthen in bad times. Three God’s thoughts observed in those verses :

1- First , God promised to us give us the spirit of wisdom NOT confusion

2- Second , God promised to us give us the spirit of peace NOT worry

3- Third , God promised us to give us the spirit of joy EVEN in trouble times

The act of God have seen in Abram and Sarah that Sarah born a child in the age of 90. We have seen  after Stephan how God brought Philips for His kingdom. The ways of the Lord are amazing and we would not be able to comprehend with our earthly mind and thought. In Psalms 95 : 2 we read. We need a fresh mind , a pure relationship with God himself to Understand of His ways.

“Before one can walk as Christ walked,
and talk as He talked,
he must first begin to think as Christ thought.”
A.A. Allen

Jeremiah 23 : 29 , repeatedly telling me that ” “Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

We need to recognise the God’s thoughts and consult with Him. Ask Him.Is this you thought God? We need to accept God’s plan in our life and know that He wants the best for us does not matter if we can not understand it. I want to read with you 1 Corinthians 2 : 11-16.

” For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. 13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.

14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. 16 “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”

Yes , you have the mind of Christ and you are taught by the spirit , and you will understand the things freely given by God. When we have the mind of Christ then we know what is God’s thoughts and how we can apply in our life.

“man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7).”

Wisdom

Peace

and Joy

All yours when you have God’s thoughts.

Love on the way!

It is up to you. It is all to you not others . May others push you away but finally you are going to make the final decision.  However you are not alone anymore. His Spirit lead you home. Guide you to a new home. What decision are you making today?

But today I am going to tell you WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION EVERY HUMAN CAN MAKE.

I have decided . I have already accepted. We read this in :

JOHN 3 : 16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

There is a lot decision you can make. But to be honest this is the best decision you gonna make: surrender your life to Jesus. You know why? because you will earn the eternal life. you will earn His love, you will earn the real peace…

There is no such fake things in Him, There is no such things with empty promises. I love this . I love that he loved us first. wow wow wow .

“You are my Lord, because You have no need of my goodness.”
Augustine of Hippo, Confessions   

He has no need our goodness but we need his loving passion love everyday.

God already submitted his love to us through His son Jesus Christ . This is not a religion thing , this blog is not a religion blog at all. It is all about His love and mercy. He died for you and me. That’s why I am here to write this good news of His love to you. we all in our journey , we may make mistakes but his loving kindness cover us. He came to heal you, be with you.

love on the way

“I look forward, not to what lies ahead of me in this life and will surely pass away, but to my eternal goal. I am intent upon this one purpose, not distracted by other aims, and with this goal in view I press on, eager for the prize, God’s heavenly summons. Then I shall listen to the sound of Your praises and gaze at Your beauty ever present, never future, never past. But now my years are but sighs. You, O Lord, are my only solace. You, my Father, are eternal. But I am divided between time gone by and time to come, and its course is a mystery to me. My thoughts, the intimate life of my soul, are torn this way and that in the havoc of change. And so it will be until I am purified and melted by the fire of Your love and fused into one with You.”
Augustine of Hippo, Confessions 

If God leading your heart then he is leading your life. Love is on the way we decide to choose it.

DSC03318

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10 : 13

I love August.

August is beautiful , August smells great. As we are going fast to our spring. I never thought I will be living a place that opposite of the world that season are different. August is the best season here in Australia . I mean all are the best . But reality is August is not hot , is not really cold. August is spring here. Have you been waiting for Spring yet? you say oh I can’t wait for the winter will be finished. Here in Sydney we do not have snow. Did you know that? We go a lot of beaches around the country. But did you know that not everyone living close to beach? Okay. May I shocked you enough. Why am I saying this. Because may you are waiting for your spring right now? May you are in winter now.  Don’t worry you are in season. You need to be still and the Spring will come soon.

IMG_0109

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.(Ecclesiastes 3:1-22)

May your life is in season. The first thing you need to know is : to recognise it. Know you are only in a season. Is it a season of relationship difficulty ? Is it a season of family issues? is it a season of financial? whatever it is or it might be, know that it is only a season. The answer of all this is Jesus. Because in book of Daniel 2 : 21 says ” He changes times and season “, He is able suddenly change your season and that time is breakthrough for you.

Then You say:

We have Joy in Sorrow . When we trust in Him in all seasons.

What God wants you to do ? Isn’t to do good and to do what is right. Isn’t an act of kindness and love others. You can do it even you are in a bad season.

There are two things you need to be aware of :

1:

Micah 6 : 8

What does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?

2:

What God do for you?

“If you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.( Deuteronomy 28 : 1,2).

How great is our God. How wonderful his work on the earth.

Go day by day, take one step at a time and meditate on the word of God. Okay we instead of focusing on problems we focus on the promises of God. We walk humbly with God and do love others. We are wise and open eyes to know his will our God. Pain is Good. Pain made you stronger and may close you to God. Yes absolutely, Pain itself is painful but what you come out of is brilliant. If your season is equal to pain. You are in good position of His kindness more pure out to you. Pain is not from God but it helps us to know that God still is with us.

I love August. I love this month. Not cold , Not Hot. As I am cycling throughout nearby park.

fix your eyes on Jesus

Although , confused and shocked. Although we do not know which way to go and looking for an open door, it seems everything is mess up BUT fix your eyes to HIM. We do not trust any human , we do not have confidence to the things or anything you see and is tangible in this world. We believe in invisible God so why are we going to believe in visible things?

He made the thing on this world for us . He created things in Heaven and Earth. He trusted in you that you govern the things. He breathed a new fresh spirit that you can have wisdom in everything. Do not let anyone judge you by what you’ve done or you are doing!

Do you want your prospective change over the things? Fix your eyes on Him.  So you may ask question how I fix my eyes when seems the storms are so big for me. I give you one example from bible.

You will change if you change inside and becoming like Him.

Presentation1

Let’s go together open the book of Colossians chapter 1 from verse 15 to 22.(Colossians 1 :15-22)

If you really believe in Him , you have to believe what Jesus says about Himself in scripture. We know that the Holy Spirit is the author of the bible through his people he has done his plan .

The situation of the need of the Holy and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ at Colosse. You and me are in the same situation now, although we may faithful in everything but still we are in so much trouble forgot to fix our eyes in Him. But good news is here we overcome the world already .

Paul wrote to us too, He brought beautifully an image of Christ for us and said that related to centre of our faith. He said to our normal language : ” Hey , I know you are in trouble , but do you know by Christ all things were created, the things you see now and the things you can not see now ” He continues and reveals a good declaration that ” You see the powers now , you see the authorities now , oh my friend all things were created BY HIM and FOR HIM.

Did you just realise that? BY HIM and FOR HIM. Potentially everything. Paul remind us and encourage us that ” CHRIST IS BEFORE ALL THINGS ” . He is gone the way before you and prepare it for you, He is gone and prepared a table for you. Do you believe in that?  Believe it and become it. This means fixing our eyes on Him when the storms comes. declare that ” My Jesus is before all things , My Jesus know the way , I just trust in Him, He went the way ”

After your declaration and becoming like Him , now God’s spirit dwell in you( although you receive in your salvation , you release it now) in whatever you do, because you are in full control of the Holy Spirit. Then you smile in trouble , then you are in peace in the storms , because you became like Him. Because God’s fullness dwell in Christ now you have the fullness of God.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.(Colossians 1:15)

Let the invisible God – form your heart and give you strength to move for

That’s what we made for

We made for life. We made to try . We made to live a life of legacy. How can it be? Just give it ago. I know sometimes its hard , I know sometime seems its impossible, but it is not! Not at all. People call it to be ‘ smart ‘ you do not need to be smart to have Joy! Do you?

May your smart philosophy mind get you comfort things.  Oh my dear friend late or soon you know you can not buy ‘ JOY ‘ .  But there is HOPE. There is LOVE , that can take you to a new life. a life of Faith. God loves you.

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9 : 8

He is able to make you life fresh. He is able to take away your pain. He is able to restoration your relationship . He is able to give you understanding and wisdom. He is able to give you a new start. He will abound you with His grace and mercy . You are lovely and awesome.

How sweet is to be His friend. He will provide your all need at all times. Your times is in His hands. This is His promise to make you new. The Holy Spirit is within you. If you just allow Him to release inside of you.

 

IMG_0906
Life is beautiful. You made to be His.

 

The good thing of seasons , are ,  they come and they go. So do not worry about anything . I meant everything. God is able. If we confess and put His will first  , we start to see the things differently.

That’s what we made for. To be HIS .For Life. For Freedom…

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5 : 1

Stand firm in your freedom. Stand firm in His presence in whatever you do. Are you a house-wife? Stand firm. Are you a business man? Stand firm. Are you a student ? stand firm. Are you a mum , dad , husband , wife , sister , brother ? stand firm and love your family.

That’s what we made for. T0 love one another deeply. To forgive each other humbly. To be patient in everything. Because you are adopted to be His children , you are chosen people. You are who God selected you to be HIS. Because He loved you first and died for you.

Lets start from now , to see different.

God is your leader.

Not long ago I was looking for  a mentor for bible discipline. a few days ago God spoke to me through His servant that in Bible there is a lot mentor to choose.  Life is a life. A full adventure of things. We all need a leader in some point right? Even yourself somehow been a leader for someone else in somehow. For being a leader you don’t need a position or a title even I can say bravely you do not need to have a high education. It is not a authority to have, it is not a power. A true leader need love. need God himself to be at the top. I am telling you if you love your enemy and love them as God loved(and loves you) you are a leader.

Yes , You have ability and quality of a leader. When you have the Holy Spirit within you. You have knowledge and wisdom to lead you and others. You have the love of Christ that can melt everything away and show this is what I believe and this is my conviction.

I had a couple of nice week vacation ( afew weeks ago ) to visit my relative in another country. What a family , the kids are loveys’ kids in the planet , they know having an uncle far away is a gold and I was so blessed to having them close in my arms. Loving others starts loving your family , then friends and then strangers. Although Jesus’love was obviously for everyone equal. But In his earthly mission He first loved His mum and then others .( Obying his father’s will also ranking first). By the end of my vacation , the kids was crying because we cling and knew that how much is valuable to love each other.

God is your leader, He is your mentor by the Holy Spirit in you. He leads you what to do next. If you make mistakes don’t worry he knows we are human and He will show you right path. You are strong also , because a leader is a pattern for others. If hardship comes take a breath and tell to God your leader and make a decision that is right and correct in God’s eyes. Sometimes you make decision God look at you and wanted to make you a leader.

“We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.

– Charles F. Stanley

Yes He will power and energise us in any aspect. Spending time alone with God. God loves us unimaginably , more than we think and imagine. He is our supreme leader .

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. 

  • John C.Maxwell

Yes , you know the way because Jesus said I am way , Yes you go the way first because Jesus went once for all , He shows the way because He already gone for you and me.

Part 2 Balak and Balaam

Recall from my early post about Balak and Balaam from Book of Numbers chapter 22.

As I promised I am going to part 2.

Click here for reading Part 1 Balak and Balaam.

As Balak was faced a huge number of Israelites. He was looking for a solution to defeat Israelites. He sent his princes to welcome God’s message from His prophet , Balaam.

When Balaam asked God for the answer , He already answered him in one message . God said : ” They are blessed”.

Balak-and-Balaam

Now , this part is about Balaam’s donkey, be with me and lets see what will happen.

Now Balaam several times went to presence of God about what to do. In our general language he says like this : God they are still coming and I know you answered me but they want a answer and they want me to come with them. And the Lord saw Balaam a half eye keen to go with them told Balaam at the end : Okay you can go with them but listen and do what I tell you to do.

On the road an angel of the Lord stood and stopped the Balaam’s donkey to go. But Balaam did not realize that the Lord stopped the donkey and was beating his donkey harshly. When his eyes was opened , God , still did not stop him not to go , God said what was told the last time.

We ask sometimes the things are not good for us or in the wisdom of God , we go in the presence of God and ask him , ask him ( as we know that thing not really a wise for me) and eventually God will say : okay if you want to go , go.

It is right to ask God everything we need or we want. But Listen and wait till God gives you a direction is even more wiser . If you do hurry the things God will stop you ( as this means he really cares about you) and this stopped may have long consequences for your life. But it does not mean you are out of God’s plan. His plan are great and awesome for you. As you read God stopped Balaam’s Donkey but He did not stop Him what he attended him to do. It means your circumstances do not define your plan in God.

God is God. You are You, created like Him.

Think about that, how Jesus will act in your scenario , How he will respond. Put your feet in Jesus’ shoes. and Walk like Him .

God opened Balaam’s donkey mouth and she began to speak. I believe if you are for Him , He will open the doors for you, He will do things that you can not even imagine. He will use and He will open the mouth of things or those to His plan for your life be established.

Today , God wants to open the many donkey’s mouth to glorify Him in any area of your life. God wants to change around your situation . He wants to make you whole again. It is a matter of being humble. He says come if you are new in me , come if you be away from me awhile , come to me.

Father , I pray that your beautiful and powerful hands covers any person reading this right now. I pray father bless them, direct them to your way, love them again Lord as they are loved and beautiful in You. nothing is impossible those have trust in You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

He is the Life  and all the statement above are under His . In Him you have life. In Him you find meaning. In any situation or season you are in. You  are made to be there to glorify Him. You are saying Dariush how God want me to be in pain and sorrow . God does not want you to be in pain at all. God is not a bad God, He is a father. You meant to be there at that season to glorify Him. Jesus said “ I came you may have life in me “.

The life is

He loved you before you found yourself in your that particular season. There is always a door open for you, always. You say , how I am going to find it? The answer will be found in Jesus. He said :” I am the way ..”

Yhooooo. What do you want more? Life is given to you right now. You have an eternal life in  Him.

 

Proverbs 14 : 27

The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death.

Halleluiah. We have LIFE.

Fear of the Lord starts with obeying Him.

My life is His life. Your life is His life. Our life is His life. Do you believe it?

Obey and take the land.

“ The Lord your God Himself will fight for you” these are the words Moses was saying to Israel.  In chapter 3 of Deuteronomy Moses pour out his heart and it was a long time to wait and see the promised land which God was told to Him. He was crying and saying to God  : “ Oh Sovereign Lord , you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand ..” Moses saw the greatness of God , He saw how God awesomely rescued His people. And Here he is and trying to tell God , Oh Lord please let me go in the promised land.  He seems realised that God is not side of sin and not letting Him go into promised land but He appointed Joshua to go in.

Obedience is not a process of do something right rather do what is right in the eyes of God.  As I am reading Deuteronomy chapter 4 , these words was highlighted for me .

 

“..I am about to teach you, Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your father is giving you. “ ( Deuteronomy 4 : 1)

God is about to teach you, He wants to give you a new thing that you have never experienced. Himself, teach you his law and decrees. What you need to do. Follow them carefully and that you may live. So then you may go in the land and take the possession.

God wants to give you a new land. If you only be obedient to Him. Only be careful and watch yourselves closely so learn and do what He says.  Moses said to people , Observe what the word of God says. And get the wisdom and understanding of it.

IMG_0552

Let the word of God build you up, every day , every moment. Let not fall down on your mouth . and let it be your eyes and feet every step you take. Declare it in your life and obey it. When you obey it , you are doer too. God will show you the land , this is you take the possession.

He is your God , You are His Child.  Obey your father.

So run for the prize that in Christ Jesus for you. You know , you will have troubles in this world. You know , But because He lives in You , you can face tomorrow . As you obeying Him everyday , As your chain are gone in Him . You are living in Heaven right now with Him until he is coming back soon.

Philippians 4 : 4

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

Is anything in your life stopping to obey Him. Is anything in your life stopping to rejoice in Him. Put away all your worries and obey Him and take the land that God will show you.

The Kingdom of God

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6 : 33

What is the kingdom of God? It is about the spiritual kingdom of heaven over our life. You submit your life to God’s authority. You obey His command and everything you do glorify Him . His kingdom is your kingdom. You do a spiritual fight . Daniel said that “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” Daniel 2: 44.

Now  the kingdom of God is within you. Whom Christ lifted it by the power of the Holy Spirit. His Kingdom is imperishableF. If you are looking for a stable and forever peace kingdom , so welcome to God’s kingdom. Seek His righteousness then everything will be added to you. This is not your fight , this is His.

kingdom

The scripture obviously says “ seek the kingdom of God” or “ seek the kingdom of Heaven”. It meant that is not the kingdom of this earth , or another physical planet . Jesus is saying that seek the unseen God and His authority . Seek His face even you can not see it.  Normally repentance would be up in this situation when you seek his ways you repent and turn of your sinful nature and back to God. The salvation will be substituted in this situation.

Paul also says in his letter to the church in Corinth “I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 15: 50.

To this very end the natural desires comes second and the supernatural desires comes first .

Paul continues with this that “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” .vastly we see the kingdom of God in the old Testament . The kingdom of God is a changing process inside out. It is not something you can touch but in a way is present and you can feel it within you.

The church of Christ can help you to find a way to reach the kingdom of God but all depends on you and your decision. The kingdom of God is not pushy , it is a soft and powerful home that brings the heaven inside of you. But , wait , It does not mean when we lost our physical reality we will lose the kingdom of God. As I said it is a spiritual reality , it is a spiritual kingdom , it will never die. It will never be faded. You will be still alive. It is really important with this mortal body seek His kingdom. This is honourable. You are still on the earth with this body but you are covered with the kingdom of God, isn’t this awesome ?

I can write to you about the kingdom of God pages and pages. In this short article I want to encourage you that as a Christian seek first His kingdom , because your hope is not on earthly things rather on heavenly realm . Yes , when you sought His will than your earthly needs will be met.

unending Love

God calling you by name. He knows your name. He knows who you are. If you are wondered and confused around do not know what to do, do not worry, He is here for you. He is your Father and He won’t let  his children be afraid and alone.

Do you know he loved you before the creation of the world. His unending love will never be ended. He came for you, For broken hearted , for poor in the spirit , for everyone who call upon on His name … But it seems His GRACE covers everyone.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3: 16

free_space_galaxy_texture_by_lyshastra-d77gh2y

Yes , He came for us. Not only he died for us he gave us eternal life.  I am not here to convince you , He Himself , the Holy Spirit will speak to you. I am here to remind you that you are loved . May you are going through a tough season , or may is everything alright and seems very peace around. In both scenarios , we need our God to be involved and shine on our way.

“Jesus thank you that you loved me , thank you that your unending love is for me . Father thank you your toughts are far better than any human.”

You do not need to do good to be in his love ( Although those good deeds are fantastic to do ) But he is already provided for you by the cross.

Oh my dear friend, 30 years being in this world showed me nothing is better than His love, Nothing in this world compares what he has done for us. You and God will be comleted , You need Him , I need Him  , we need Him , we can not do alone this journey .

You say how Dariush can I return to God?

I say , You do not need to do anything. Just come to him as you are

I say , accept Him as your lord and saviour and His unending love will be unleashed in your life

You say , I did Dariush

I say , repentance

I say , believe and have faith and acknowledge Him

Let the love of God unleash you truly , Let the love of God soften your heart , Let the love of God wash you completely , fill yourself with unending love of God everyday.

The Crown of Life.

If you are in trial right now do not be afraid. because that is a reason for you to become gold. Yes, for going to be pure gold you need to go in a process. It may be hard and harsh but , there is this believe that testing of your faith develops perseverance then you may be mature and complete.

I love to encourage you today that your trouble is a testimony for your victory for tomorrow. James wrote in his book that ” If any of you lacks wisdom , he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1 : 5.

Please ask God to know and get wisdom and understanding from Him. How? By going into his presence and meditate on his word. But the think is here you must believe when you ask. Do not ask God when you have doubt. Do not ask God when you pre-judged the scenario. Ask like you believe it to happen.

IMG_0521

Some of the phrases a believer say when he ask:

*Tell to God I Know you are able to do all.

*I believe God you are in control of my situation and I Surrender all to you.

*I stay in your presence and you have to bless me now(God loves that enthusiastic in you, show it )

*Father I know you do the impossibles and Nothing is hard for you.

*Tell me Father what I need to do : 1- if you need to fix me , please do it by your Holy Spirit 2- If you are going to change me I am yours

*I believe and trust in you not on my own understanding, I love who you are

Encourage yourself in God, Humble yourself and cry out to Him and have this in mind and heart that He is close to you and long to know you more as you are seeking his face.  I promise to you if you grow in His love , you will have a deeper experience of God personally . Whenever the trials come you consider it a pure joy . joy in the Lord because you are His children , You are His and He is yours , Nothing . Absolutely nothing in this world would be able to separate you from His love.

The trials will open a new way to know that God really have a plan for you.

Lean on Him . Surrender to Him, Tell Him your troubles . He cares for you. Let your lips and heart confess His Name. Say it loud ,make a song and sing it for Him. Sing like never before to change you inside out and make your soul fresh in Him. Than you will walk on the fire and you wont be burned. Than you are in the storms and you will stay in His peace . Live by Grace of God everyday and know that God has a plan and purpose each single day only for you. He is the same yesterday , today and tomorrow.

“Blessed is the person who perseveres under trial, because when he stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”( James 1 : 12)

You trails are part of your life because the trails are the reasons to receive the life.

He loves to give you the crown of life. He loves you my dear friend. because that crown is made by his lovely hand only for you. No this is not every crown you think , this is specially made for you if you stood the test. He is faithful if He said so , he will give it to you. Do not be blown and tossed by the wind. You might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

My prayer :

Father I pray for those , they are in great hardship and trials , Father give them strength to pass it . Father you know how hard it is , You know Father because you sent your only Son to rescue us . Father let them know you still in control even in their worst days. Love them , let them seek your face everyday and call upon on your name in their troubles. Thank you Jesus , Thank you God and thank you Holy Spirit that you are with them.

 

Grace be with you all

The World IS NOT my Shepherd !

I remember a season for the collecting mushrooms , me and my mum and brother and their friends went to collect the mushroom from a Jungle . We went early in the morning . Now I found my self into a huge trees and greens. I did not know the way I just followed them , suddenly in the middle of that huge trees I saw no one around me. I was lost! Because I did not follow the leaders.how do you feel those moment? looking for a way to get out? Sometimes, the world want to declare to you ‘ I am your shepherd ‘ But truly It is not.

Who is your shepherd? Who is in charge of your life and have a final word?

Today God will speak to you if you open your heart and let be HIM only your shepherd.

” The Lord is my shepherd  I shall not be in want ” Psalms 23.

We all know this verse , most of us memorise this verse and know the words perfectly. But as we are living in the world , the things around us affects our daily life and slowly slowly  we substituted this verse in this way :

‘ The World is my shepherd I have everything I need ‘. Is this true even? Yes it. we make our world have authority over our marriages , over our relationships , over our coming and going , literately we made ‘ the world’ our lord. But Who is your shepherd ? is your job? is your boss? is your money?

Image-1

Those are good questions to ask yourself. Everything you have is from him only.

“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” ( 1 Peter 1 : 3 )

His divine power all you need. His Authority all you need. He him self is your shepherd. God is your shepherd when He is in charge you won’t be I need. You are in peace , Because ‘ the World is not your leader ‘. He meets everything you need . The things, the people , the idea , the men… are NOT your shepherd . God Himself is yours. He guides you , comfort you , strengthen you and you lack nothing.

The men disappoint you but God will never.

He is the Lord of your life and you have everything you need. Those are in under his leadership they may never be separated of His unending love.

The World is not my shepherd But the LORD is.

Depth of My heart.

Do not allow the sinful world bring you down . With all beauty around This world also is full of pain and hurt , it is everywhere . Scripture says ” fix your thoughts on Jesus “.  Let Jesus fill you with His presence , Let him change you inside out . You are made in His image. You are made in His Love.

 

Today , if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts

as you did in the rebellion.

 

Hear , Holy spirit calling you. Keep listening . Keep Listening , Be still . You do not need a miracle to hear his voice . You need a thirsty heart . You need a keen-heart that shouting for a joy from above.

Today, Jesus , is ABLE turn around your circumstances , if you only have a  heart to hear.

If you only knew how much he loves  you. We all  disobeyed , We all forgotten what he has done for us. We all have been lost , in our own way.

Let not your situation put your heart away from God rather let it make you close to God’s heart then the heart of Jesus beating in you, then you hear his voice , then you know who he is. He is the builder of your house , He is the builder of everything . Do you believe it? If you only Trust in Him. If you only touch his garment.

Holy Spirit says

” Hear my voice , I am speaking over your life

open your heart

Do not let your heart goes astray ”

You will know my way . Jesus says ” I am willing ” , ” Be healed” , Our God is God of ‘willing ‘ . His goodness continues. Yes , He will prosper you, He will heal you , He will cleanse you , He will. Are you willing too ?   His arms are wide open. Just come and give your heart to Him.

Are you willing give you heart to God? Are you willing to change you? Are you ready. People disappoint you but never do that. You can trust in Him.

“When you pass through water

I will be with you

when you walk through fire

you will not be Burned ”

 

I Pray

” The hands of loving God taking care of you in anything. The arms of great God protecting you from any harm. The eyes of God watching over you. The feet of our awesome Father bless you and His ways be cleared to you. In Jesus ‘Name. Amen ”

Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a key to your freedom. Forgive those who hurt you and do not allow your destiny in God be affected by this. You belong to a holy nation, God can do anything in your life that is impossible . Yes I know is hard , and Yes I do not know the measure of hurt and pain that have been brought into your life. Look at the Cross , What Jesus Done for you? Wasn’t He hurt because of our iniquity ? Weren’t they insult Him?

unforgiveness make a mountain of hurt and bad stuff.  Remove this by pushing the Spirit of God to work through you and eliminate it slowly.

Perry Noble in his Unleashed book wrote : ” Forgiveness is not a onetime choice. Rather, its a daily decision we need to make. ”

The struggle of forgive is real. But why are you relaying on your own understanding ? When the God of universe came and live like us in the world and died for humanity . Isnt this forgiveness. May you say Dariush I know , But He is God .

image

Oh my dear friend , He was like us , 100% Human , He felt like us, He was under pressure so much ( As He said to His Father take this pain from me or give me strength to pass it).

I give you some tips to help you for forgiveness:

1- Forgive your self.

The very first step you need to take is to forgive your self , this is not going happen till the Spirit of God move you inside and cleanse you . This is who you are. This is who Gad had in mine to make you. You are who you are in Him. You came for a reason to love and be in love. God has not called you to unfruitfulness rather He chooses you to be what you would be. You are forgiven . This is not your own task. This Body of yours is for His. This Heart of hurt and pain is for God. Your attitude toward yourself must be changed . Paul says ” be new in your mind “. Submit yourselves . then to God.

 

2- Forgive others

I know , nearly for some of us is impossible. But do you know with God nothing is impossible?  If you want to be release and reach to freedom. Take step and do forgive others. Why are you hurting yourself? There is no reason for it. You are made for today. You are not belong to yesterday.  You are belong for tomorrow. Every morning is  a new day a new glory. You are not a product of past. You need to make decision today.

You never know how beautiful is forgive others when you really do it.

You say, How Dariush , How can I do that. I can not do that ever, you do not know what have been that. Yes you are right I do not know . But I do know we have a God is greater and bigger than anything . Do you believe it? receive it in your heart. Change your glasses , Change your prospective , Change it by the power of love . Yes you can do it. Let it go . Do you want to receive forgiveness , do forgive them.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. ” (Matthew 6 : 14-15)
I did not brought up this verse because you have to do it. Most of us read this verse and pass it on. I brought this verse up because I love you to be free from pain of forgiveness.
Do not let the certain time of  your life dictate your bright future.

3- Moving on

Let it go and move on to your beautiful future , God has bigger plan in your life. Don’t you know God was waiting for you to move on?  This small thing of life which we made for ourselves like a mountain is an obstacle for God’s purpose in our life. You are going to next level . A level of flourish.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!    ” 2 Corinthians 5 : 17

Are you okay with it? You are completely a new person . You are labelled with ‘strong’ . No, no one can steal you. This is yours. This is a gift. A gift from above. Move into new glorious future the God provided for you.

The True Vine

“I am the true vine , and my father is the gardener.”  Jesus is the source of light and life. He is the vine and we are the branches. He is Himself is the root. And all branches are going to be fed by Him. You can not do the life without Him. He loves and cares about you. He said “ If you remain in me , you bear much fruit “ .  The fruit of joy , the fruit of prosperity , the fruit of peace will be yours.  Because you are connected to Him. You are not alone, because a branch can not do anything without the vine.

“ If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you”(John 15:7 NIV)

A few verses in chapter 15 : 7 , we incredibly see that Jesus says remain in me means love each other .

If you ‘ love each other’ you will remain in me. As He loved us and died for us and remain in Fathers love. So it is better to say that “ if we love each other and His words stay within us , we ask whatever we desire , it will be given to us “. Do you want be closed to God? Love each other. A genuine love that not for any men. Do you want to prosper ? Love your neighbours. Who is your neighbour? Your partner , your family , your co-worker , your mate , a stranger …

Your Joy is in loving others, This will start joy in Jesus.

“ My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”(John 15 : 12)

This is a commend my friend , I beg you , this is a commend of God to love each other  deeply with all heart . forgive each other as He forgave you. You did not choose Him, He choose you to go out and love others. This is to the Father’s glory, in this way show you are His disciples. Yes , I know people hurts , People do the things so harshly , People are not the same , People instead of your good deed gives you bad. Oh my dear friend please do what your master told you to do. Are you going to listen to what people thinks about that if I do this or that? Your master commanded to you go out and preach the good news to everyone. What’s the good news? The gospel of Love. The love of Christ. If you really rooted in His love.  

Image-1

Let Jesus raise you up , If He chooses you , then , He provide and feed you with his heavenly food. He called us friends , we are his friends . Ask in His name , and you will receive whatever you wish when you are rooted in Him.

He is Your living water. He is Your provider . and know that you bear much fruit if you stay in what he says and listens to whisper of the Holy Spirit everyday in your life. I am sure God is waiting with open arms to see and hear from you.  Your joy will be complete when you truly bear much and much fruit in Him.

I pray God open the doors of opportunity in your life. I pray the true vine gives you new prospective to see the situation from his eyes. I pray as you trust in him , remain in Him by loving others and stay steadfast in his promises . I pray God heal you inside out and you will be blessed for others and glorify Father in heaven in Jesus Name.

Your world (is) God’s world!

Are you looking for a change ?  Changing your career , changing your partner , changing your relationship , changing  to a new country . We all looking for some change in some point in our life. Bibles obviously is not opposite of a change. God love changes in our life. Father sent his only son for a change within us and given us eternity . Our destiny changed by Jesus of Nazareth. But I know it is really hard to change our career, our sweet home.

Sometimes we need to stay what we do. And whatever we do glorify his Name . are you a carpenter? Glorify God in your workplace. Are you a house-wife ? glorify God in your family and children.

“ Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for the men.” Colossians 3 : 23

Imagine that , you are not working for men , you are working for the Lord. Because everything belongs to Him. He created everything , every idea , every workplace , everything is in His control. So your main boss is not a man. But your boss is in heaven who sit on the throne forever.

Your world is God’s world. God covers everything in your life. As He is above all. Look at below image and for a moment think about it , where are you. where are you glorifying God? Can you find yourself there?

your world

You Glorify God in your world . what makes your world. your career, your country, your community , your family , your friends all belong to him . You will find your identity in Christ , because You are glorifying God in there.

Does not matter what you do. Do what you need to do for living. Eventually we all his holy nation following one goal. The goal of ‘glorifying his Name’. Whether you are engineer , Clark , wife , husband , boss , big manager … for the lowest position to the highest position . all together going to glorify God.

God is Love. Serve God with all your heart . When you serve God with all your heart. You do whatever you asked in your workplace , you serve your earthly bosses with all you have because you know you are serving the Lord almighty. You know you have a big reward for the Lord. Paul says in Colossians “ you will receive inheritance form the Lord as a reward “ (Col 3 : 24) and continues he says “ it is the Lord Christ you are serving “. Wow read it again. And again . is it possible to serve my ugly earthly boss?  Hmmm. According to this verse , yes it is . Not only that scripture says ‘ it is the Lord Christ you are serving ‘ . I know .  I know . Serve your boss like you are serving Christ. Be humble. Look everything from his eyes. Change your prospective through these lanes.

Whatever you do . do it for his Name. Do not complain , do not grumble . Be satisfied to what you have. Whatever position you have . Try with honesty your best , I know Christ will bless you at your home , at your workplace . And wherever you go . you will shine like a diamond.  You are his people.

You are altogether beautiful!

“Beautiful is a sunset, or the rain, or being in love. Beautiful is singing in the shower, running at night, and laughing out-loud. Beautiful is the way a flower smells, or the feel of their skin.” Some people defined like that.

Solomon in his Song of Solomon says (4:7) “You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. “  You are wonderfully made . such a beauty not only outward appearance , the fountain is inside , your soul and heart is beautiful if you fears the Lord . In proverbs 31 : 30 we read “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. “  You will be praised , because you are in God’s family and all of God’s children are beautiful and incredible.

IMG_0291

And my soul knows that very well . Wonderful are my God’s works .

Yes sometimes life is harsh and challenging , But it does not reduce your beauty in any way . It never can. Your beauty stay forever in God’s eyes. Do you know that God made everything beautiful in its time? He has put eternity in your heart. He has done everything for you .  God love is a beautiful rose for you which that never be fade , its smells never be go away . Look at that, you are God’s love. You are an apple in his eyes. You are saying you never know what I go through right now or what I’ve done ! wait a minute. That’s correct . I do not know what you are going through . But He knows what is happening in your life. He is saying you are still same beautiful and incredible for me oh my little kid. I  love  you. Why are you worry about anything ? rest on my shoulders . rest and relax I am with you , I made you and I never forsake you.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40 : 8 .

His word will stand forever in your life. What he says will be done. He said and there was light. God created us in his image. He is beautiful , so we are. Because we are made in his image. “Behold, you are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful! Your eyes are doves behind your veil”( Song of  Solomon 4:1-2). Your beauty is like God’s beauty . You are his holy nation , you are his only one.

How great is his goodness and how great is His beauty. My friend you are beautiful already , have no doubt about it. It means you are valued and you are loved. No need to be approved by human . You are approved by His love . Be hold , be strong and do not be afraid , you are not defined by others , you are defined by Him .  Jesus said “ I came you may have life in me , more abundantly.” ( John 10 : 10 ).

the Fullness of God.

We all need to be powered by the Holy Spirit to reach fully in his love. We need to be immersed in his love completely to become mature . Becoming mature will be found in love of Christ , it is not something to earn, it is something to hold , it is already been prepared and ready so you are not trying to earn something instead you are running to hold it and reach to fullness of Christ. That the wholeness of Christ may approach in you with freedom and confidence.

“..to grasp how WIDE and LONG and HIGH and DEEP is the love of Christ”  ( Ephesians 3 : 18b)

Until not going to grasp the all angle of the love of Christ , you are not going to reach the fullness of God. Immersing in each angle of grace of God make us united with Christ through the Faith . “In Him and through Faith in Him” we will be entered to four angle of Christ’s love( wide , long , high and deep).

fullness of God

Angle one ( Deep)

Paul says “ being rooted and established in love “ . It means we are going to depth of God by love and love only. You are inside the zone of grace of fullness of God by being rooted and established in love in Him only.

Angle 2 (High)

“Through faith in Him we may approach God with Freedom and confidence.”  What the love of Christ brings? A live a life worthy of honour and calling , be completely humble and gentle , be patient and forget each other and bearing with one another in love. This angle keep the spirit in unity through the bound of peace.

 

Angle 3 (Wide)

“ So the Christ may dwell in your hearts ..” Living as children of Light make our love in Him wider. Wider and Wiser to know his love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of ALL fullness of God.  Do you know his love make you wiser? A wide love that embraces all truth. This is a very important angle of fullness of God. Your love toward others should to be wide as you are wise in the knowledge of Him.

 

Angle 4 (Long)

“ and becoming mature , attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of God “.man and woman of God not only is depth and high and wide in love of Christ also now he or she is becoming mature in Him. Old has gone far way now a new self is on. He/she made new in the attitude of his/her mind. Everything sees from the eyes of God. The Holy Spirit shows the way clearly . The person knows what is good , what is not good to follow and do.

 

What Christian would you be? We all want to be filled with the fullness of God. We all desire of the knowledge of God. We all longing to see his face. We all running the race to win the prize. Christ with Cross opened a new way of living for us . Father’s will  is for all, the fullness , dwell in Christ. His body shown the real love to us. What person you would be , when you knew that for his fullness we have all received ,  grace upon grace.

Pray with me:

Father help me be rooted and established in love- that I may have power in you.

Let me grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ for me. Let me long for it and run for it. Let me filled of your love and grace. God burns this desire in me to seek your face every day till I reach the fullness of you.

Thursday Devotion

What you sow now that will determine your eternal life.

what are you sowing today?

Flesh and its desires comes and goes but whom does to please God will reap eternal life.

” Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” ( Galatians 6 : 8 )

Teach yourself to be led by the Spirit not by flesh. Your eternal life depends on your spiritual situation .

What area of your flesh life need to be surrendered to God? Let it go and le the Spirit lead you.

 

Why am I attending Church

If you have these questions :

(Are you tired of church? does the church not treating you well? There is thousands reason why I am not going to church?)

If you have facing those questions I am here to help you. I am here to care about you individually. Please do not blame God for it . Please , Please , Please

Also  I am going to find out why am I attending Church. There is so much benefits going to church rather than not going. You were been stopped on humps. Let not stop God’s dream in you life.

There is a lot reason why I am going to attend a church service . I am going to bring a few reasons. But this is not enough . some they have their own reasons why they are going to church, but most believers have a some same belief about this which I am going to point them out here.

You are not a religion person when you are attending a church but you show that you are adoring your creator.

This writing is only my prospective of mine please be relax and lean read till end. There is no offend to those are not going to church. This is only my opinion why am I going to church is important for every believers. Please keep aside if you are victim of church attenders or you have been hurt directly/indirectly by the Church. I love you and respect your opinion.

We all know that for the 1st century believers, we did not have a building church or/and an organisation which we call church. It was been totally different meaning for first believers. Every place in everywhere 2 or 3 believers gathers they are church. By passing time and a lot of history came which I skipped fast on it and going to tell you the main point. Church meant meeting together. In Hebrew 10 : 25 we read “ not giving up meeting together..”

IMG_0244

Church is not a place to make innovation, Church is a body of Christ. Church is a place to admire and encouraging each other. Some people get a wrong idea and prospective of Church. Church is a holy place that the power of God exist. So Where the power is? Of course is within you. How you can release it? By meeting together. In Matthew 18 : 20 says “ For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” There is no power in one individual , this passage clearly saying us 2 or 3 for one thing united meet together I will be there. ( do not make mistake with private alone devotions in your room). There is a power gathering together . If you found a church they are not build up each other , or pray for people or not even encouraging each other, you need to consider that am I in church or in a club?

Now you are sit in and lean in a church you are receiving the teaching and word from church and helping you growth you richly of the message of Christ and liberty and wisdom is overflowing .

Meeting together help you to be strong and more united. Church is far beyond more important than teaching and fellowship and the breaking of bread to prayer , it is not about making myself a good guy in my God’s eyes. It is about build up each other so whether this is be done by giving encouraging word or whether this be  done helping someone financially as much as you are part of the body Christ. And you respect and support those they are in charge and doing and setting up all this ‘meeting together’ (Church) and supporting spirituality by giving tithes. If you not feeling acceptance and loving and caring in you local meeting together you should consider. By,  giving your 10 percent of your income you are saying my possession is not mine , it is a blessing from Him , it is a sound of I am not belonging of this world. It is , that , I believe to Miracle and have faith that God will do amazing things in me and other people life.

Think about that how you can you be involved in your meeting together(Church) . If Church hurts you somehow in someway please do not blame God for it . Please do not be tired of meeting your fellowship believers. Find a away how you can see the things from God. His grace is sufficient for every things. That is a medicine for every sick soul.  Let the peace of God rule in your heart which overtakes everything.

This meeting together would be in any place. Your home, your school, your room , in your land.  As much as broken be healed , unity and felt like home and acceptance because you are not the one will mend the wounds and broken , The Holy Spirit will do it. As Paul says to young Timothy in 2 Timothy 4 : 2 “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”

As you are running to get the prize, please keep your eyes on Jesus. There is no perfect human except Himself Jesus. So there is no perfect Church in this world till we all going to be into our original church , Heaven. Go to church show that  I  AM here for the Christ.

 

Surrender Your Heart to God.

We talked about this that allow yourself to be you. Who you are now is accepted by God.

God is looking forward a better of you but it does not mean He does not like you. You already been liked and loved. Before rain falls down and wet the soil He loved you, before the sun rise up ,He established the great plan for you. before He formed this world ,He designed you specific.

This God of all creator , heaven and earth everything we can imagine says ” I do not stop loving you”. See what I created . See what I put for you , you always in my heart.

Look above when you are down in your soul. Look around how beautifully I made the things even if you are unable to look to yourself how wonderfully I made you. Am I not able ? Am I not able to care for you? Trust me. I want to show you more. I have more for you . ” I am who I am ”

All galaxy , all stars , all creatures will bow down and know that I am God. This is all mine. Why you are worry about the things that not belongs to you. He continues saying  : ” I gave you breath and I know how to give it oxygen to it . I DO NOT STOP loving you more and more. I  give you free the joy of morning , I will give you free my will , I will give you spring , I  give you my peace that is over all and all , I  give you everything. everything I have is for you. You are my favourite one. I sent many to tell you even to warn you how much I loved and love you. But your fathers’ fathers did not listen eventually I sent my beloved Son , because the flame of love for you was too much . You’ll be completed with me. Come to me.. I know you’ve been away. But my arms are always open for you. ”

IMG_0236

He does not stop loving you my friend. Even you made mistakes still He is been thinking of you. Even you made sin still you’ve been in His mind. But He is so Holy. This is not you can not go to Him. we have a friend , a saviour . He will wash our sins then we can have a first-image relationship with God. Let God come into your heart as He is. People of all generation try to make a God with religion and opinion. But the real-God is not what we made . He is who He is. He will reveal Himself to you if you truly surrender all to Him.

Surrender Your Heart to God

Surrender your heart to God,
    turn to him in prayer,
 and give up your sins—
    even those you do in secret.
  Then you won’t be ashamed;
you will be confident
    and fearless. ( John 11-13-15)

By surrendering to God you are in a new level of understanding and wisdom.

Are you ready for change ? giving up all wanted and unwanted desires to Him. You wont be ashamed. You will be confident. Let the Holy Spirit moves in You and create you a new born baby. fearless and brave , strong and confident.

 

Thursday devotion.

Thank God is Thursday . This is the day God made . Let us rejoice and believe the best are ahead for us. The journey is full of blessing .

In today devotion let the spirit lead you through . Lean on the word . Read and enjoy with it .

Here is my thought and revelation . According to your circumstances you may have a different revelation which is iimaget for your situation .

Here God is going to act . Read it – meditate on it and share to others .

Mark 9:14-30
-But if you can do anything , take pity on us and help us .
-If you can ? Said Jesus .” Everything is possible for him( a person) who believes”
-” I do believe ; help me overcome my unbelief “.
There is no “if” to whom believes . He can do anything for you today . What area of your life you need to ‘believe’ to happen !
Give to Him .

what do you believe in for to happen ?
Can you say :” I do believe ” God cares about U & your situation . Just believe in Him and know that everything is possible for you .

Be Yourself.

We all want to be praised for our good job , not because of we need it only . It is our nature that for every aspect of our life someone give us a clap for it. It is not a bad thing at all.  But what is heart behind?

God does not want us to go 90 kilometres run but our body can handle only 10 kilometres . In a similar way He does not want us to be and act like another person, who created you , created you unique and special. Everyone has own race to run.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16 : 7

God look at the heart. Not appearance . Not statute . Not title , Not position. Oh my friend believe me He does not look at what job you are in, Yes He cares But He looks what motivates you.

Be yourself.

Image-1

God loves who you are right now. He does not call you to change He calls you to back home. He wants to show his beautiful and marvels heavenly things. Come and be yourself. Leave others people opinion , come to Him and Cry out to his feet.

He is not looking for followers , He makes you in Love with Him. When God’s nature comes your way , you will really realise who you are. Your identity will be found in Him. You are , who you are. When you come to Him , God wants you Not others. You need to look and smell like your own self not others.

Be courageous

Be crazy about yourself, Be comfortable who you are. You are not living on others people opinion. Remember what Paul says :

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ” Galatians 2 : 20

Now Christ lives in You. Now you are living by Faith in His son. Be courageous and look to the mirror and tell  this is Christ who lives in me. Don’t try to be others. Your lack of everything is a point of strengthen for you to grow to flourish and to perform in a better way.

Go and See!

It is simple as it is. Jesus asked his disciples ” How many loaves do you have? “He asked ” Go and See ”

Yes this is about one of the big miracle of Jesus during his ministry. He fed 5 thousands men alone plus  there is been women too. When I was reading this story in Mark 6 . Suddenly Holy Spirit talked to me . How many loaves you have in Home? How many blessing you have in your household or in another word how many blessing you have in your life? Jesus Continue to ask ” GO and SEE!

No No No ,  do not count it instead GO and See.  How many ? can you see it?

Jesus want to bless your small things , He wants to multiply what you have? Do you realise that?

In Mark 6 : 38

“How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five–and two fish.”

God want to bless your Five and two fish. Does not matter how many loaves and fish you have at home. There is going to be enough blessing for everyone. There is going to be large amount of blessing for you , just Go and find out what you have? can we trust in him and go to find out? or we are going to have doubt about Jesus’ sayings.

Are we looking for healing alone everyday? or Are we going to obey what God says? No doubt there is so much blessing in obeying.

So , do you go? What you see?

Now , bring it to Jesus.

Obey!

He will multiply it for you.

enjoy the blessing of God.

T like Trust.

Trust is not easy word. You need to trust God. let me say in a better way. You have to trust in God if you want security in your life. King David trusted God , He knew God is his only rock and refuge.

“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation” (Psalms 13 : 5 )

We have to learn to trust God in every circumstances and in any area of our life. Trust in Him.

Would Trust God in your crisis ? He will never change , He is unchangeable forever. would you? Have a conversation with Him, tell him what is in your heart. He is abousltly can not wait for you.

Trust must be earned and maintained by being believable, reliable, dependable and accountable. Integrity is necessary for the trust. Trust must be earned it can not be purchased . Trust comes with security and confidence also.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. “ Psalm 9 : 10

Prepare Your Destiny

Preparation is necessary for any task in our life . If I am right to say that without preparation there will be overwhelming  and a touch of fear !

When you are ready and knowing what to do next . You are in a better position and allowing yourself to enlarge .

Enlargment needs a well preparation .

Bibles says this to us like this way :

in Mark 4 : 20

“But other people are like seeds sown in good soil. They hear the message, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirty, some sixty, and some one hundred.””

image‬‬

I am going to put in three things you will need for preparation in such a way help you to enlarge in your walk of faith :

1-  HEARING / READING THE MESSAGE

(Romans 10:17 )So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

In the life of Jesus we always see Jesus talk to people and spread the message to them . People were hearing the message of salvation . Clear and loud by Christ in the way their own culture and language . Some practical way for us is today , hearing the message , through Internet , our church , thank God we are living a world of technology .

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.(Joshua 1:8)

Reading the message through our personal devotions , in our mobile phones . Computer and ect . Hearing / Reading of the message is one of the key and important principle of preparation .

2- RESPONDING TO THE MESSAGE

(Romans 12 1-2 )So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Responding is a level of Maturity.

But Hearing/reading is not enough , aaccepting the word and let it sit in the heart is the next step of the grow . Your grow is incomplete without accepting and responding the message . This stage is like ; you hear that your father told you to do a task but you are not responding that and doing that . So what’s the point of that ? You need to accept the word and hold it in your heart that will be a cause of flourish.

3- BEARING THE FRUIT

You have respond very strong . You obeying Him wholeheartedly . Now in Faith you are bearing fruit more and more. Love and submit yourselves to God. Love people and life .

” This is to my father ‘s glory ,that you bear much fruit , showing yourselves to be my disciples.(John 15:8) ”

Bearing fruit means producing even time as much as was planted .

Practice a lot these 3 principles you will be well prepared to bear much fruit for Christ.

Get up again!

We choose to choose the things , truly in freedom there is no have to choose the things , there is always want to choose  the things. Today I want to encourage you. I want to shift your eyes to the things better . I want you to realise your potential in Christ. I want you to remind  again and again that you are belong to your Father who created you , who knows you better than yourself. You know how much you are blessed as a believer , You are not longer own by the world.

Does the world disappoint you often? God is always working in the life of believers.  When you commit your life to Jesus , He will be with you in every step. When you fall , He will lift you up. And He is saying you are my favourite child.

How many times do we fall down in the life? Because of the hardship , because of the problems.

He keeps you safe with his mighty hands, although seems you falling down but you are falling in his arms.

King David in his Psalms wrote( 37:23,24)” The steps of a human are established by the Lord,
when he delights in his way;
           though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
for the
Lord upholds his hand”

Today , where do we need God hold our hands?

There is no shame in falling. How you get up is matter.

Can we be still faithful when seems everything fall? Although we know that God will submit humble people He will lift them up. That’s the time we sing like David, A sing of freedom :

“You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.”

2016-01-15 16.31.38

God want you get up again and try. You , each part of you made to try again and get up and try again and again. He , Who made you , do not forsaken you or leave you.  He will give you wisdom and understanding if you still have a believe.

Do your children make you fall and disobeying ? Do your future make you worry and it is a reason to fall? Get  up and see God already given you victory. We believe our freedom is in hands of Christ. It is a peace and power in his hands and arms. Why not falling in his arms?

Apostle Paul knew till we are in this world we will fall but the Spirit of Faith and life in Christ will let us get up again and try. In 2 Corinthians chapter 4  verses 9 n 10 we read:

“Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh”

 

Remember this , God will not test us beyond our ability to carry it. He will always open a door and a way to better place.

What is today that is a reason for you to fall?

Cast your mind and heart to Father . He cares about you. Your troubles is His too. When you are in hardship He understands you. Just focus on Him and read His word.

God’s love = ∞

Most of us do not have patience enough in our life. We scare to face the mountain of the problems and looking for a way to scape and we all have some situations in our life somehow could not be bothered. Not only that it is like a trigger , if again something like that happened we are not there.  When Adam and Eve they sinned against the command of God, they could not stay and they fled from presence of God. They could not face their issue. because the disobedience was greater than forgiveness for them.

The reason we can not solve the problem because we are fleeing from them. God want us to be still see how wonderfully he acts.

Do not flee from your problems , stay and know there is a God. Have faith. Even you are feeling the pain of the issues breaking you down. Stay till end because victory has been given you already , do not you know that Jesus said ” I have overcome the world” . Be strong. God is faithful. Does not matter what test or trail comes on your way his unfailing love never be changed , never be shaken. His promises are greater than any problems you are facing, His presence is holy than any other presences. Meditate on his decrees. Cry at his feet, it is okay.

David says : ” My comfort in my suffering is this : Your promises preserves my life .”(Psalm 119:50)

2016-01-15 16.39.49

He knows our fainting hearts but we won the battle. What we do? seeking his face. We seek his face oh He is a good God , a loving Father, a king who served us. Let us face whatever  our obstacle is and in reality of His presence we live a life of legacy , a life of peace, a life of purpose and a life of hope.

Do not be scared what is or what would be your problem, Do not focus on it. Greater is His love. You have an eternal life in Him. Do not you know this life is only temporarily. Do not you know you are a citizen of heaven.

” My soul faint with longing for your salvation,

But

I have put my hope in your word.

My eyes fail, looking for your promise. ”

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. There is nothing in this world greater than His love. greater than his Love. I hate wrong path. I gain understanding from your precepts.

I Meditate on your precepts.

Love of God is infinite toward you regardless of your mistakes. God did not mistake , He created you in His image. Turn way your face from issue to his face , you will see better who you are in Him. When we realised that than:

God’s love = ∞

the issue = empty set –> {}

Nothing compares to his infinite love.

We are waiting for a better life in Him- An eternal life with Him. You are temple of His. You are carrying his image. So If you fix your eyes to Him,  than your problem and issue will be eliminated and see it is nothing at all. Our biggest sin is washed by blood of Christ.

Don’t you know you are not your own?For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. This land even is not yours. This problem is not yours so why you are bothering yourself. This house is not yours. This car , stuff on this earth are not yours. This money is not yours. But the love of your Father is Yours. His arms is yours. His hope and plan is yours. His kindness and greatness and peace is yours. His presence is yours. His home is yours.
