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.

I Believe

Believe it or not. There is no other way around. There is no way in between. Believe is something you can feel . You can see it but is unseen. You can not proof it but you can hold on it.

Believe is a medicine to a sick soul. That is a confidence and a hope. It is not a luck. It is a hope  for life after death. Believe is a  believing to a supernatural thing.

If you believe everything in this world will be finished. That is a short-eathly-believe which is not what we believe. We are talking about a believe last forever . We can believe something that would not effect our firm-believe.

The kind of believe , we believe , is Faith. It is trustworthy and worth to hold on it. Because not only give you peace in this world also give you a win card for future. You did not come to this world by chance to spend a few years and then done! No, you came as an exact plan and purpose of your creator. In exact time and location. whether or not you have a believe in creator!

It is a confidence . It is a “pesteuo” comes from the Greek noun “pistis” which means: persuasion, assurance and belief. It is a “Aman” comes from the Hebrew which means to confirm and support.  In Bible the word of believe  , Faith  and trust came from one word in Greek which is pisteuo. In another word; It is Faith  and It is trust. When you believe in something you have faith in and trust in it.belive

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith(Believe and trust), and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

Charles Spurgeon describes it well in his book, All of Grace:

What is faith? It is made up of three things—knowledge, belief, and trust.

Knowledge comes first. “How shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? I want to be informed of a fact before I can possibly believe it…”

“The mind goes on to believe that these things are true. The soul believes that God is, and that He hears the cries of sincere hearts; that the gospel is from God; that justification by faith is the grand truth which God hath revealed in these last days by His Spirit more clearly than before. Then the heart believes that Jesus is verily and in truth our God and Saviour, the Redeemer of men, the Prophet, Priest, and King of His people. All this is accepted as sure truth, not to be called in question…

So far you have made an advance toward faith; only one more ingredient is needed to complete it, which is trust. Commit yourself to the merciful God; rest your hope on the gracious gospel; trust your soul on the dying and living Saviour; wash away your sins in the atoning blood; accept His perfect righteousness, and all is well. Trust is the lifeblood of faith; there is no saving faith without it.”

Everyone has a believe , right or wrong. Even the demons have a believe (James 2: 19).

Bible says if you have believe , whatever you ask you will receive it.(Matthew 21 : 22).

If you really believe Jesus as the son of God, your life will change 360 degree! What it means? It means you need to trust and have faith in him. As we read , the believe and trust and faith are one word in Greek. What do you believe today? Are you holding it good enough ? Did you find it true ? Did you find it peaceful? Did you find it what it is really?

Saint Augustine Said : ”

 ” Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”

 

According to Pew Research Centre : 

84 percent of the world population have faith ( which is included all religions ). But believing in right thing?

Everyone is looking to believe something. Believe in something wrong far more dangerous than believe in nothing! Some times you know what is true but you do not believe it. That is dangerous.

Jesus said : ” Everything is possible for one who believes.”(Mark 9 : 23).

Believe for a christian means ” Everything is possible ” . Believe take your look above all. A christian believe is not earthly nor fleshy . It is something from inside out. something can hold the time and show you everything in a second. Believe is a relief for us . It is an open sea which you in control of the wave. If you want to reach the real meaning of believe choose to believe in God, in His Son and the Holy Spirit.

Nothing is better then flying by your self. Let your believe take you there.

B E P A T I E N T

Patience , is a really heavy word.  As bibletools.com brought it up , according 1 Samuel  “lack of patience can cause you to miss blessings “. Take a firm and strong step in your life by being patient. Jacob served seven years to get Rachel. What are you going to serve to get? what is it that you need to wait for?

If we hope for what we do not have yet , we wait for it patiently. The Spirit help us in our weaknesses.

Our weaknesses is a point of our strength. When we are weak then we are strong. When we are weak to wait , then. it is a good point to know what we hope for and why we need to wait for.

Look at the farmers , they all wait for the right time to harvest their corp. The spirit of God gives you wisdom, The spirit is not in rush. Our time table is not the same as God time table. Yes , it is right, He respects our times and decisions. But oh my dear friend if we truly live in spirit our time will be set on his time, our calendar will be same as God’s calendar.

2016-04-03 00.40.28

Be Patient , Let the Spirit does for you. Oh we are not patient, even stay 10 seconds behind the traffic light. Honestly I hate waiting. what should I say?  Waiting on the line for check in / out, bank …

But those are the simple things of the life. The bible teach us to be patient in suffering. Be patient and stand firm. Because the Lord is coming soon. Being more patient gives you ability look at the things with a clear eye . You can have a strong step.

Today may you are facing many issues in life. The are not bad things , The issues makes you strong , you need to be patient. Are you waiting for your partner be saved? Are you waiting for new relationship ? Do you want your kids be changed? Do you want your wife , you husband come to Christ? what ever you are waiting for you..

Answer is  : B E   P A T I E N T .

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. ( Proverbs 19:11)

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.   ( Romans 12 : 12)

Love is Patient. Love is kind and slow in anger. There is nothing in this world can separate you from Love of God. Let the Spirit lead and rule in your heart. Let not troubles take away your patience. Be in God.

Psalmist say ” I waited Patiently for the Lord ” ( Psalms 40:1).

Patience , Indeed is one of the fruit of the Spirit. Joy , Peace , Kindness and understanding comes following it. It will give you great endurance.

” Patience is not simply the ability to wait- It is how we behave while we are waiting.” -Joyce Myer

Remember , in every road of your life , almost every road you need apply patience . Be calm , you need it.

“Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.”-Saadi

Your words brought Heaven to Earth

Today , I have decided to read and study the book of James. James who is a half-brother of Jesus Christ. Who after resurrection of Jesus pursuing and following the Christ’ way and became a believer. His book is five chapters and so much wisdom into it , as they call the proverbs of the new Testament.

I am going to share a few of views of James with you. As there is so much to talk about in his writings. I borrowed two books from the library to search and learn more about his writings. Two books I am reading are : 1- How to be a mature Christian (wisdom of the book of James) by Marilyn Hickey. 2- James , Faith in action by Rick Hufton .

Both of them are rich books and something you can learn.

The Power of the tongue. Do you know how vital is the way you speak to people ? Your word can shake a city and your word can move the mountains. In another side your word can destroy a city and your word can build someone up.

This is your choice how you speak to others. That’s where the book of James is in the heart of the Bible. James who seems to be the pastor of Jerusalem Church is so concern about Faith and Action . Which in my pervious post I talked about the Faith. Saying right words and keeping it right is our action.

There are so many Christians out there they can not control their tongues. Probably we remember this that : Sticks and stones may break my bones , but names will never hurt me ”

Do you know that : death and life are in the power of the tongue?(Proverbs 18:21). for sure you heard or read this scripture many times , ” Be slow in speak “.

2016-03-29 21.05.13

The word you are about to say is very important. Bible says the tongue is a fire. The world smallest but largest troublemaker. We need to understand the power and effects the tongue can have. James describing a person how to be wise in the way we speak.

We talked about the wonder of the tongue but in the other hand it would be a wonderful thing. With that we can bless God our father. We can praise Him. We can bless others and tell about the great things of God. we can turn a curse to bless. How is that important ?

James knows who is talking to. He gave them a challenge :” Who among you is wise and understanding? ” He is telling them your early wisdom is nothing compares to heavenly wisdom.  Still jealousy and arrogance not completely are away from us. A true wisdom manifests itself in good deeds and specially in meekness.

James is saying : ” your words control your mind , your emotions and your physical body ”

So do not be afraid speak what God’s word says about your situation. God’s word is a tree of life. which grow more and more and bring more fruit. This is not the wold decision , this is not that destiny that this world chosen for you. neither of them , This is the word of God will determine your success. As you speak his word, you also bring others in Christlikeness.

The more confident  we are in God and his Word. The more hope we have for the future. We can speak life to our situation. We can speak boldly the power of the Holy Spirit is in work within us.

Peace and harmony will be the gift of those whom greatly keep their tongue pure.

A true wisdom is pure , peaceabe , gentle , reasonable , full of mercy and good fruits , unwavering and without Hypocrisy. And above all a true wisdom is holy.

Indeed this is true from Rick Hufton : ” True wisdom is not measured by how much information is in a person’s head, or how well they can quote a creed. True wisdom can only be measured by a person’s life, in how they live and what kinds of words they allow to come out of their mouths . ”

Let us not be double-tongued. Let us bless others with out tongues. When you try to speak life to others suddenly you will see change in yourself.  Let answer everyone with purity. Let the Holy Spirit say to you the words you need to tell to everyone.

Psalmist says : ” Let them ever sing for joy”

For sure our God, Himself protect you.

He Is Risen!

Christ is the reason for the reason. The only rock you can trust in. He is majestic overall. The history of humanity never seen a person, So humble full of love and grace in his face. Today we are celebrating his great victory on death. Who can hold this king? Who can bound Him? even death could not hold Him. He is the king of Kings.

David Praise Him, He sang a song for Him.

David’s Song of Praise:

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
                   my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
                          my shield and the horn of my salvation. * 2 Samuel 22

The grave could not hold Him. He is Risen.  The resurrection of Jesus Christ gave freedom to humanity forever. The power of Sin is broken. Our risen savior broke every chain.

Mark written in his book:

“And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in long white garment; and they were affrighted.

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.” * Mark 16: 5-7 (KJV)

He is not here.  He is risen. Jesus is alive. Not only the resurrection of Christ was humanity , it is for individual , it is for you. That you can resurrect with him. There is no place for condemnation , no place for sin , no place for that hold you long time.

There is freedom in Resurrection . Holy Spirit is now working everyday . The comfort spirit is working until the second coming of Jesus Christ. Cast your mind, your life , your family , your everything to HIM, The risen savior is for you.

The message of today is come to him. This is a perfect time , such a time you can come to him.

“…surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” * Matthew 28:20

 

Happy Resurrection Day.

Faith

The bible study tools defined faith like : belief , trust and loyalty to a person or thing.

Who we are trusting to? What we are leaning on to?  The world and desire passed away but who does the will of God will live forever. What is faith for you?  We , as Christians , living in this world do we have faith(enough) in our life , Faith enough?

When Peter ( a disciple of Christ) Saw the big wave coming toward him. He scared that  I am going to drawn into water . because he suddenly changed his sight to wave . He suddenly changed his focus to another thing . And when he changed his sight , his mind also change toward that thing. Oh I am going to die here! Jesus’ hand grabbed him and said : ‘ Oh you little Faith ‘ .

Faith is believing to thing you can not see. Faith is having hope and trust completely to a person is higher than you. children trust their father , when threw them into air and catch them again. They trust  them without knowing why? their father have life experience and he is strong. How much your heavenly father who created you and me have so much power to catch all of us.

Image-1

Faith comes with action. Faith without action is dead. Faith and deeds works together. It will be complete by action like the body without spirit is dead.

It was that Faith  that Christ complete it on the cross. He had complete Faith(trust and believe to his father) to obey his father will. He went on the Christ to show us how much he loves us. He wants us  to have faith in him completely .

Faith, no require understand for the start but eventually you will see it that is will of God for you. Faith takes you to unbelievable things.

Oh Father we pray in this holy night ,  please give us same faith that circled in you at the time of when you have been on the earth:

Matthew 26:36-56

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane.

The night Jesus going to be betrayed by Judas. Special night for Jesus, He is in trouble . But he is awake all night to pray faithfully.

He knows his Father is faithful. He knows his heart all is His.

“See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. “

Faith took Jesus in another place. Now his Faith comes with action. Now he is fulfilling father’s plan.

“Friend, do what you came to do” Jesus said.

Then, They seized Him.

“the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled ” Jesus Said

“Then all the disciples left him and fled.”

Faith took place. All gone.

Oh Jesus , Thank you that you have been faithful till you died on the cross. Jesus thank you.

Nothing is Impossible! With GOD

Is anything impossible for the Lord?  God promises never fails. Who is going to separate you from the Love of God. As I said before we need to trust and have faith. There is no formula around. It is so simple. Believe and commit to God. Make it ‘Him-possible’. You are not the one tell God what to do.

If you have faith you can do anything! Yes anything. In Matthew 17: 20 we read :

…“I assure you that if you have faith as big as a mustard seed, you can say to this hill, ‘Go from here to there!’ and it will go. You could do anything!” .

You could do anything ! Did you have faith enough declare the power of God in your life. nothing is impossible for God. What is impossible with men is possible with God.

with God

I love this quote from C.S. Lewis as he mentioned his Mere Christianity ‘s book.

“The terrible thing, the almost impossible thing, is to hand over your whole self–all your wishes and precautions–to Christ. But it is far easier than what we are all trying to do instead. For what we are trying to do is to remain what we call “ourselves,” to keep personal happiness as our great aim in life, and yet at the same time be “good.”

You need to give all your selfish way , all your pride , all in all to Christ. Not only that, your dreams and wishes might be hand over to Him. Who does not want impossible thing?

Are you facing impossible thing in your life right now? Are you feeling disappointed and you test all the ways?

I am here today , Now ,  to tell you good news. There is a way. It is possible. It is reachable. Jesus says ” I am the way and the truth and the life…”. When you know the truth , He will set you free. Oh you are thirsty , you will drink and will be never thirsty. We do not have such impossibility thing in the land of God. There is always Hope and Love.  Everything is possible for God.

Pray with me:

Sweet Father  Thank you for everything , Small things are blessing in my life, I say thank you . Thank you that nothing is impossible with you. I can do all things with you. Your spirit lead me . I am blessed because everything is possible for me right now. Let my faith grow, let me be in your presence more that I can be close to you more. In your name I prayed. Amen

Trust to God my friend, be Consistent in prayer and have faith that everything is possible with God.

Draw a Line!

Your good father want you. He wants your heart. He does not look where you are- or where you are born or what colour you skin is. He does not change like shifting shadows.

Are you listening to Him? Be quick  to listen to Him. Listening to Him requires time and attention. Spending time in his presence. Fulfil your earthly and heavenly needs by meeting Him.  Listen to your heavenly father. Do what He says.

How do you know what he says? Through his Word. Read it – meditate on it. This is a good point of jump to greatness. You do not need to do what you do not like. If your heart is with God. You do it with your heart. You surrender all to Him. Humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

You are now the heaven citizen.

You are now child of Light.

Draw a line between what is good and what is not! Listen to your heavenly dad. Do what he says. Take what he puts in your heart.

God does not show make some people rich – Some others poor. He wants you to prosper.

God does not show favouritism.

Even you think you are the worst person in the planet. Still His love never changes toward you. Still He loves you regardless of what you’ve done or what you think about yourself. There is no sin , which his blood can not wipe it out. Confess you’ll be forgiven. You are beautiful. He loves you. You are valuable and important.  Each part of your body made as  his perfect plan.

Lets be faithful – as He is. Lets be humble as He is.

IMG_1476

Look at the birds, they are not worry what to eat and where to sleep. But heavenly father provide for them everything they need. Wouldn’t you think he cares about you. We are looking for the city that is to come. We are waiting for our lover- Jesus.

Faith takes you to unbelievable things.

What’s your heart’s desire? Let God polish it- shape it- create it a better thing.

Come – Come and let us adore Him, You will find everything when you worship Him. What a lovely father. He is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

Grace be with you all.

the Everlasting Hope

When God calls us. It means He loves to free us in Christ. He wants to turn our situation from despair to delight, from misery to pleasure.

Since we have been dead in our sins. Lost in our lust. Without hope and life in this world. But now we our redeemed in Jesus,He freed us . Now we have eternal hope and life in Him.

He does- what he does! He breathes into our restless life with a wink changes everything. He does the same with the word of ‘impossible’. He touches and breathes into in and it becomes ‘Him-possible’.

” So Christ brings a new agreement from God to his people. He brings this agreement so that those who are called by God can have the blessings God promised, Blessings that last forever. This can happen only because Christ died to free people from sins committed against the commands of the first agreement.”(Hebrews 9:15)

You are chosen people. A holy nation. A home that built on the rock. You are entered to receive the promise of God. His promises never ends. They are sweet for your soul and body. So what promise is for you? – Eternal inheritance in Christ

Abram was 99 years old when the Lord appeared to him.

So old for us. So young for God.

God promised him to make Abram great. He changes his name to Abraham. He makes him extremely fruitful and gave him a child in that age.

So impossible for us. So possible for God.

God is whispering to each one of us today. If He can do for Abraham He can do it for us. Now we have a new covenant in Christ.

Impossibility is a gearwheel of Hope. Possibility is a wheel of Hope.

He is telling you:

” I am God almighty. Live in my presence and devout. I will establish my covenant between me and you..(Genesis 17 : 1)

Living in presence of God gives you eternal peace and freedom. A freedom with obeying . Your dady in heaven unbelievably love you. Even his punishes toward us is full of wisdom and lesson . Welcome to the land of promises.

My prayer is your receive the everlasting hope in Christ. Does not matter where you are and what is your situation. the new covenant . the great promises of God. the gift of Holy Spirit lead you in green pastures and show you awesomeness of his presence. Then you will stand firm in Him.

Are you in desert?

God will bless us in the times of desert! We may be sometimes in desert. In desert of losing Jobs, in desert of divorce , in desert of separation , In desert of family , In desert of health , in desert of your kids, in desert of relationship..

I want to tell you what the Lord says ” I know you are in desert , I watch over your journey through this vast desert “.

Forty years the nation of God lived in desert- and they lacked nothing.

Today the Lord is saying – you spent enough wondering around and confusing – Now turn to a new way I will show you.

You are about to pass your vast desert land!

The vast desert are not permanent in your life. Whatever is your desert now. You are about to pass it. The Lord says : ” I will bless you in all work of your hands. You are about to turn a new land- turn to a new territory.

Are you worrying about a  new land?

Do not be terrified ; do not be afraid of facing new things and new people. Your God who is going before you, will fight for you(Deuteronomy 1 : 20)

The vast desert of your life is preparation of going and reaching to your dreams. Your dreams are after passing this  wasteland. If you are in middle of it , take heart ; every one have to pass to get their dreams true. Your God is with you, be still ; He is with you in all your desert times.

Bestland

Let your  desert land time make you a better person. Deserts are good sign to grow your personality. You need it. take it as it is and the time of pass will come soon.

Listen –  See – Taste

God is doing a new thing, Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? God is making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.( Isaiah 43 : 19 )

Your wasteland turn to a  bestland when you be still and trust God.

 

Pray with me in your heart:

Father , make me strong in the times of desert. Let me know your will ,  Let me turn to a new land . Make me a better person through this journey as you are watching over every details of it. Thank you that what you are about to do .much more amazing things.  Your hand are not short. Thank you for saving me and your grace is sufficient for me in the times of desert. Amen

A dream for Wisdom

How many times we asked for something and we haven’t received it. The only answer we have been facing was a simple ‘Silence ‘.   Do you know that silence is an answer. You heard a lot people around you saying be patient. Wait for the right time! And more phrase like that. But think about that for a second; for example most fruits have their own season to produce , Apricot season is on January, we have fruits during in winter time.  Me and you need a little bit endure to get the right fruit.  Who is not in trouble in this world? All we have little stone on our journey.

Keep asking – Pray for everything ask for good thing. God sees your motivation. Solomon asked God for wisdom. He did not ask for money. He did not say Oh God make me rich.  Oh my dear friends . He asked for wisdom to rule over his people. Solomon remembered what the Lord done for his father David. He confesses that he is very young to rule. Are you feeling young and inexperience in your life don’t worry God will give you wisdom; Just ask for it. Oh you are in right place!

Succeed comes from being good , loyal and honest.

Here we see that Solomon has a dream. A dream for wisdom , wealth , understanding and honour. We read this in book of first king chapter 3(1 king 3: 1-10) .

Material are steady and comes and goes , they are serving us Not we are serving them. They are only a tool we can use them. Godly knowledge is not everyone own it. Those they have it , they  asked for it and they did not put their trust in the world instead keep their eyes above to receive it.  Do you need wisdom for your marriage? Do you need understanding for your kids , family and ministry? Time is humbly ask God. Please do not look back. Use your past only for lessons not regret. If you really want wisdom and understanding, God is telling you put away other things , those they are not from me. Put away your modern-logic-world understanding. Put away those sticky and burdens  of this world .

God says I give you a dream. A dream of wisdom and understanding.

Come out of ‘ the box of me ‘ . Let the shine of the father bright your future. If You really need wisdom and understanding like Solomon. So pray for it , keep asking for it. But you may say : Dariush I prayed a lot and asked a lot but nothing happened. Here I am going to ask , Are you ready for to receive it. Right motives and wrong motives are completely opposite each other. Solomon prayed for Wisdom because he saw the need of his people.

Here are some wisdoms you may ask:

Wisdom for Family

Wisdom for marriage and relationship

Wisdom for your future steps

Wisdom for understanding your current situation

Wisdom for others

Wisdom and understanding for your heart

Reading Point : 1 King 3 : 1- 10

 

Run Praise Song

1040 BC , King David born- The largest book of the bible written by him. The new testament mentioned 75 times about the Psalms of David. Also King David did not write all of the Psalms but his the most prolific writer of songs.  Most modern Christian songs is revelation of his poetry to God. If you’ve never read the book of Psalms , I suggest to you  set a plan to read it .

I  have just given you a short introduction about David and his book Psalms.  If we look at carefully to David’s life, We will learn a lot about praise, peace and pursue, He is a person to after God’s heart. He said in his book:

” It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man” ( Psalms 118:8).

The reality is David praises his God not one time , two  times , or three times. His praise and worship goes seven times a day(Psalms 119:164). In this view most of us do not raise his name even once a day. The thing is here David in his terrible time , the time of dark and cave has written his best songs to God. If he wants to start something he first praise his God and give thanks to Him.

Let us read what was the David’s prayer asking God to build a house for Him.

David Praises God

There in front of the whole assembly King David praised the Lord. He said, “Lord God of our ancestor Jacob, may you be praised forever and ever!  You are great and powerful, glorious, splendid, and majestic. Everything in heaven and earth is yours, and you are king, supreme ruler over all.  All riches and wealth come from you; you rule everything by your strength and power; and you are able to make anyone great and strong Now, our God, we give you thanks, and we praise your glorious name

He surrenders all to him , He confessed that the Lord his God is all above all kings.  Look at carefully how David with the heart of kindness praises Him:

He says :

oh Lord God

You are great …

You are King…

You are able…

Most of us we make question instead of statement ,

We do ask :

Are you great?

Are you king?

Are you able?

If we really believe that He is able, therefore we do not stop at the door of doubt. Did you surrender every corner of your life to Jesus by Praising Him? Don’t allow your trail make a track of doubt that he is not great  or he is not in control. Indeed He is in involved in every detail of your life. His silence does not mean he is absent.

We can not test Him, We can not find his greatness through good / bad things happening to us. His sovereignty never changes. God is spirit , we need to praise him in spirit.

IMG_1112

Do not allow your physical world , neglect your spiritual world!

David continues his prayer by saying :

“Yet my people and I cannot really give you anything, because everything is a gift from you, and we have only given back what is yours already.”

What a declaration! He realised that and consciously says those words. We can not really give anything to Him. God has everything. Our job is only praising Him As David did. If we have everything in our life is a gift from Him only. We bless others that what God has given us. It is not ours , It is Him .

So I urge you give your heart to Him by praise.

“Praise the Lord your God!”

We are all human and full of need and mistakes. The think is here we need ‘ to have need’, we need those crazy mistakes to build a strong relationship with God. If you are perfect do you really need a God? the question is here Yes. Because he created you, the deeper inside of you shout to join at peace in Him.

Be a man and woman of God that after His heart. Stop asking wrong question. start to praise Him.

Praise open the new doors of possibilities.

New opportunities will come in a pure praising.

Start praise Him for your small things. Run for praising Him.

You are valued!

Around a few days passed to my pervious post as I was thinking what I am going to share with you guys . As I was browsing many blogs, suddenly I realised am I going to post for entertaining.

Try not to entertain but share what I receive from above. I am not here to write a few words and show my ability of writing that how good am at it( which is not). I am here to change the people’s life through my simple words. I am here to put value for each other’s life.

It is not our ability, His ability make us able.

Therefore , When you surrender what talent you have , the result is multiplied of great things. When you work hard and have consent what you have in your hand God will make it great. Are you feeling no one is appreciate about what you are doing or what you have done? Don’t you know that God do not look at the platform what show is on. He looks what is behind the sense.

But the matter is be faithful and loyal , You are talented . Now you are able in Him(Philippian 4 : 13) and can do anything through Him. Your ability is not what your friends  and family and others says. As I said it is HIM.

gol

“I know hurt is too much, I know what you’ve been through , I know and I’ve been there for you but you did not call me Jesus says.”   You are human, this is part of your life. When the sin entered into the world , no one has perfect stage of peace.

You are valued. You are who God made in His Image! What does that mean? It means make a big dream. Even you can not reach it. Does not matter how far you go to catch but your intention to get it make you more satisfy at the end. Stop or Run. Both are in the life of Humans.

You are loved. Yes , May you heard a lot! But I meant it. You are loved. Means you are a lovely gift from above. Does not matter if you are unlovable in the eyes of the world. Remember what our God said. He said this world will not love you. Take heart you are so so much precious then think you are.

You are gifted. This is not my word. “But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. ” ( Ephesians 4 : 7 ).

You are , who you are. Created by Him. No body can be YOU. Your mood or feelings neither of them separate you from the love of God.

“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.” – C.S Lewis

Believe or Not!You are beautiful- You are such an angel which God even put you in higher then the position of them. You are found by the light- the prince of peace. You are born again in his heart.  I am so glad  to tell you. Believe it! you are so special. A rainbow that stay forever.
Keep faith you are the Best-

Be a new person

You must be born again .
You need to have a new birth in the way you think . There is a new morning in a new born person . Flesh gives birth to flesh but the Spirit gives birth Spirit. When Jesus said these words to one of the teacher – He saw the needs of this world is not in this world . The heart need of this world is above . You need to be naked , put all your sticky attracting things of this world away .
God want to make you like a boneless fish. -Dariush Youkhaneh
It is time to go to river of God for pray . It’s time for you to be born again .
Time to shake all your condemnation and shame.
It is time to be washed by the river of God.
Believe and trust comes with his perfect love through your new way of walking with Him.
Your eyes will be opened & you see who He is! Jesus said my sheeps know me and I know them . I give them eternal life.
Narrow your way – there is so much distraction on the wide way. Let The Holy Spirit renew YOU. The You is a new person.

When you build your life on a foundation of your authentic truth ~ you are fulfilled with joy and enduring peace, you feel you, the person you are meant to be. Angie Karan
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
The new is here! Your old selfish way has gone. Your old ‘not-glorifying face’ has gone. Now you have a new face – a face of worship; a face that trust in Him.  I love this.
When you born again you are stepped into greatness and it means you are in zone of Miracles.  Dariush Youkhaneh
God not only like take off your impure things from you , Also he loves to give you a new identity- That Identity which the enemy stolen from you.
Paul says :
…and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.(Ephesians 4:24)
You need to be washed away. There is much more beauty for you when you are trusting in him.

Knowing Him

What a day!! Glory! I hope each one of you (as one of my pastor said) : Living in dream! I hope your eyes are fixed in Him, and do not allow others influence their wrong idea in you. But meditate on word of God. Pray God will change you everyday. Fast a few days. Work out on your Salvation . Do what is good!

We need to have a great relationship with God. John says in 4 : 24 God is spirit, We must worship him in spirit and in truth. According to his will having a great intimacy with God we are going to hear from Him and not only that we will be led by Him. There is so much to know about him.

Your life should look different from those people have not known God. We are not weird Christians , we are light. Keep your heart towards Him. Pray and fast . God is looking to you. His blessings is upon on you. God’s heart is beating for you ; speak to him. One of the God character is faithfulness.

 IMG_0292

God loves how you live and his is very interested in you. He does not look to your face and saying : ahhh I did not make your eyes well!!! No.  “He says you are my child and you are free ” . You are loved. God wants to know you more. Your relationship with God shake all the impure things in your life as you know him better everyday.

Then, when you know him all things are possible. Think bigger but planted. We are living a meaningful life with our creator. We are saved.

Today God will is to bless you and show you the way. Are you willing to take step.

1 Peter 5 : 3

The Good Shepherd

We all need our God to be involved in our life. Without Him we are empty and confused. He has breathed his life into our dead-bones that we can be like him. I can not imagine one day without him. He is our Good shepherd. He is a good shepherd with full confidence and security. King David trusted in this wonderful Shepherd. Surrendered his entire life to Him.

We can read all books to get wisdom , we can have all things we want and desire . But if we do not have the good shepherd. We tried in vain! He is our knowledge , He is the source of our wisdom and understanding , the only place for peace and power.

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.(John 10:11)

I am the good shepherd.

I am the gate.

I know my sheep and my sheep know me.

Are you willing to trust this good shepherd ? He is calling you by name.

He knows you.

Did you know the good shepherd laid down his life to give you life?

He is “I AM “ . Who is  Who was  Who is to come! Are you listening to his voice? He is willing to lead you to green pastures. He wants breath into your dead-bones. He Loves you so much my dear friend. Did you know that? Did you know He is not against you. He is for you. Do not look back , you are found by the good shepherd , Now you are backed to your hometown , where you belong. God’s graciousness covered you. You are forgiven.

It is never late for a new start , never late for a big dream.

The Good shepherd’s name is Jesus.

Relax and Grow

Where would be your most luxury holiday place? Where would you feel most relax? We all want to be a better place. The world is looking to offer us everyday a place , a thing , an idea which lead us to a top-best location. In the midst of get more and more and more. Our mind is going to be full of world-thing think and even we do not have time to take care of ourselves. This is not far away from us as believers. This is so much close to us even into us too. As the giant of time taking over our life everyday , We are reaching to a point of pointless. God do not want from us to be so busy in this world to forget spending time in his presence.

He is in centre of our centreless life.

When you realize that and release your all impure things; He , Himself will be a source of power. You are in a relax mood. Now, it does not matter where you are, you are in best place, because he is your centre. That’s why King David says “ Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest”(Psalm 55:6).

IMG_0291

In your busiest of the daily-life you are at rest in Him. Okay- this is great isn’t ? But being relax comes with some other facts too. Like trust and patient ( which I’ll explain in another post). Not only your relaxation makes you near to God also it is time to grow. Most people are saying grow once come when you labour for it. Oh, Please this may be true. But this time, is the time of revive , strength and grow in what will give you. When you are in relaxation mood , your mind and heart surrendered all to him , then , you will pay more attention the voice of God more than the voice of this world.

We will grow in respect to salvation. Like newborn babies , long for the pure milk of the word. You will grow in word. You will grow in speech. You will grow how see the life form his eyes. It is time to be relax and enjoy the ride. It is time to grow. Not listening to noisy world rather then be in joy of his beauty. If something stop you to be relax in him , that something has no authority over you. Make Him your centre of Life, find a time to speak to Him, tell Him all your troubles, and cast your mind to Him. It is not easy I know but he knows you can do it.

2 Peter 3 : 18

But continue grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

Whatever!

I am amazed to this whatever we use sometimes.” We all sometimes stick to “‘whatever life ‘ “. I am spending a few days in Canberra , the capital of Australia where most people come to visit the parliament house. This is a really cool city with quite street often a few people pass through. This is the second day and I reached to read the book of Titus which Paul is going to give advice to young Titus. In chapter 3 of book of Titus verse 1-11  says ” Be ready to do whatever is good ” . What does “whatever” means to us? “Whatever” covers everything good.  stick to what is good everyday, be away of whatever is bad! in another word stick to whatever is useful, healthy and good for your soul and body.

The next verse he continues ; to be peaceable and considerate. God wants your whatever be good for you. He wants to give you useful and healthy moments . Does not matter where you are, All the earth be created by God  and he is everywhere.  Our hope is eternal , it is not perishable by anything or will be by anyone.

We need to devote ourselves to do whatever is good, this is not only good for ourselves  also are excellent and profitable for everyone!

Our fight is not against whatever is Bad. But to do whatever is good. we know that the foolish fight for the flesh are unprofitable and useless; so why  am I going to waste my time to invest the things that is useless and unprofitable for my eternity. We already been in foolish , disobedient and deceived by thought of this world. when we came to him , He naked all our distrust and covered us with trust and wisdom. He wore us with whatever is good. Time is gold. If the world takes you to an unknown place, you job is shine for him to whatever you do and wherever you go.

I love to show true humility toward all human with all my weaknesses. I know the glory of true God will be revealed when I turn whatever to ” whatever is good”. I encourage you do good . stick to the things please your God in heaven, if you do something and your conscience and heart are not in peace ; avoid to do that so. Let peace of Jesus rule in your heart; Do it with harmony and grace of God.

Titus 3 : 1-11

“Be obedient

Be ready to do whatever is good.

Be peaceable and considerate.

Show true humility toward all human. ”

The obedience brings peace , peace produces patience and patience gives you strength to stand firm in the hurry of this world.

Serving

This is really in my heart to share with you my dear friends. As these days I am reading a new book called ” qualified ” by Tony Cooke . As this book really guiding me toward my new book about the serving. I am investigating, Experiencing several years of Serving God . Reading many Books as putting the Bible my main source.

I am talking to Pastors , Mentors , experienced and dedicated God’s people and also out of church environment to get  the real definition of Serving. But all of that I Learnt you have to experience it itself.

Serving is not about a qualified person to do the Specific task , it is other way around a specific task would be done with  a not-qualified person in the eyes of this world. ( Serving the living God By Dariush Youkhaneh)

Love can empowers it. keep you and your family and relationship healthy during this serving. This all comes from The Holy Spirit. Let Him Qualified you for a great commission. It has been rightly said : ” God Does not call the qualified , He qualifies the called . ”

I am writing because I love to write. I serve because I love to serve. Am I trying to get something out of my serving ! No , Never . otherwise you can not call it serving. If my serving not going to be with heart and soul , I am wasting my whole time to satisfy myself and get what I want from God.  Jesus Says ” …I choose you, I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit..”(John 15:16)

hhHigh

He appointed you to bear fruit , He choses you. He did not call you only, He chosen you to serve his people. He choses you to carry his cross. He choses you as his son and daughter. what would be better then this! You are chosen. He chosen and sent you to filed . It means he will never leave or forsaken you.  He Looks at your Heart. Your heart can not handle all burden of this world , indeed no body by the help of him can handle it. would you allow Him to come and show you the way? The way of serving others is the way of loving him.

Today everything will change if you effectively accept to serve him.

Saadi of Shiraz

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.

If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.

If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.

No n Now

Today’s morning I was reading the book of Ephesians chapter four and five. I am going to encourage you read with me the book of the Ephesians as it said making most of every opportunity , because the days are evil.

It’s my practice, Before having my brekky , Saying ‘ hey’ to my creator. We believe our God is alive God , our God is a person . This person has emotion , heart and mind. This is a problem for most of us to not believing who he is. We are human like to see ‘ the seen’ things and everything unseen things is hard for us to believe and know is exist. We have soul and body.

Let me share to you my this morning devotion , I believe will bless you and touch you:

In our ordinary life whether we want or Not there is something we need to say No and there is something to say Yes. A bride in her wedding day says ‘ Yes I do ‘. In an good oppurtuinity of Job , Marriage … if it is in our benefit we say Yes. Opposite of that if something going to hurt us or not in our benefit we say No.

In this chapter of book; Paul writes to the member of his church in Ephesus. He call them as dearly loved children. He wants to teach them that to say ‘ yes ‘ to something and say ‘No’ to something else. He guides them and shown them be obedient to God.  The way they are think and looking to things are weird and not right to God.  There are some sexual immorality and impurity in the people of God which the mention of that is shameful. Paul knows they are need to be made new in the attitude of their mind.

IMG_0645

He says get rid of all your old self which is corrupted by its deceitful desires. You created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. The word of ‘light’ mentioned several time in these two chapters. Paul is playing a beautiful sound of warning and teaching for us. He is obviously saying ‘ hey guys open your eyes ‘ , you are God’s holy people.

You are forgiven in Him. Now you need to forgive each other.

As I am reading verses in this chapters , I went to take some notes which some parts the Holy Spirit more emphasis for me ( for you may Holy spirit shows another view).

My conclusion is going to be this :

NO :

  • More foolish talk
  • More empty words
  • Disobedient
  • Unwise

NOW:

  • You are light( the fruit of light is goodness , righteousness and truth )
  • Live a life of love
  • Live as children of light
  • Live as wise
  • Understand what the Lord’s will is
  • Be filled with Spirit
  • Sing and music in your heart for the Lord
  • Always giving thanks to God
  • Serve each other in love

wear all ‘ NOW ‘ principle that will build you up and others.

Expect the unexpected

Be Holy! Be prepared. Prepare your minds for action. Peter says in his scripture(1 Peter 1 : 13). Preparing your minds for action means be expected that you will receive the unexpected. it means you have to be equip by the power of the Holy Spirit. When you are going to watch a soccer match you are expecting the unexpected that your team will win the game, you are not predicting you are expecting.

The miracles when happens , when you set your hope fully on the grace of God.

This is not your ability , this the above strength you lean on him. Both your faith and hope are in God. They are working in harmony to reach in his presence . You love each other deeply, from the heart. Although you are born in sinful nature , but in Christ you are born again and He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

There is no Luck! Not even an optimistic.

Expect-the-unexpected

This is a grace. This is the word of God.

Obeying the truth, the precious blood of Christ.

Looking for the unexpected? Be like newborn baby, crave pure spiritual milk.

Praise, Praise be to the God. This is a great mercy. Rejoice in Him.

The unexpected real definition :
Anything is possible for God, He can do impossible. Believe in Him, He is Faithfull in all he do.
The unexpected fake definition :
Anything is possible for men, He can do impossible by his effort.

You see there is a significant beauty by whom rely on God. they are God’s favourite people, believe in him. These kind of people , Mighty God is their wonderful counsellor.

The Vikitionary Definition :

Expected the unexpected
To not be Surprised  by an unusual event. Anything could happen, and probably will.

An unusual miracles will happen to those they put their trust in Him. New things coming for you just keep believing.

He is the same yesterday , today and tomorrow . Now we are the chosen people of God by faith in Christ Jesus. There is no need to sacrifice the blood of animals for forgiveness of the sin. Now we have Jesus. God today can brought us out of our Egypt life. He promised today give us eternal life with him. Lets together go through the story of the king Balak and Balaam.

 

All happened at the east of the Jorden- the nation of God already defeated 2 kings -Sihon, king of the Amorites , and Og , king of Bashan. They need to cross the highway of the King Balak and He is not pleased to let people pass through their lands even they received officially a letter from Israelite . As Moses is old and his right hand Aaron is dead.  The number of israleite seems to be huge as the king of Moab, Balak and his people terrified and was filled with dread. Who is going to stop them? We need to turn their blessings to a curse as the King Balak and his older councel was thinking about this.

It seems Israelites are in Good position now. They are proud to defeat their enemies. Their Head held high. The King Balak smells this smoke of defeatness and now he is going to do soething about it. He heard how misrebly 2 kings bowed down in front of them.

In this mid-time he had one choice p; to curse them. He prepared his messanger to bring the one and only one of his time prophet ;  Balaam son of Beor.

They brought him this message from Balak:(1) “I want you to know that a whole nation has come from Egypt; its people are spreading out everywhere and threatening to take over our land. They outnumber us, so please come and put a curse on them for me. Then perhaps we will be able to defeat them and drive them out of the land. I know that when you pronounce a blessing, people are blessed, and when you pronounce a curse, they are placed under a curse.”

Balak knew about Balaam, He completely was aware of the ability of the God of Balaam. In his short letter to Balaam , we obviously see the fear of the King and seeking to come and put a curse on Israelites. He already searched about their army and had a check from top of the mountain that how huge they are in number. He sent his elder and princes with the messenger to Balaam.

Balaam went to presence of God to find out. Interestingly ,God came to Balaam and asked , ” Who are these men with you? ”

That’s a really good question , although God knew who are they, But He is asking Balaam who are they? God wanted to hear from the mouth of Balaam. And we see Balaam is telling all story to God. ( God knows what is going on in our life , But we need to tell Him and expect to have an answer from Him) . So God answered to Balaam : ” Do no go with them …” .

Balak-and-Balaam

 

In the first time , Balaam rejected to go with the messenger.

In the second time, Balak sent more princes to Balaam and more money to him. But he rejected all. Balaam was sure about the answer of God and knows how his God is faithful always.

Although Balaam knew about his God, again he went to presence of God to ask Him, ” Can I go with them?” God already answered Balaam, instead of this he has doubt about it , He said to the Messenger that” let me find out what else the Lord will tell me ” .  Balaam went to The Lord and ask Him again . It is like this Balaam pushing the Lord to do what is needed to be done from human prospective . The Lord said ” hmm, seems this child of mine wants to go , since these men have come to summon you, go with them, but do only what I tell you.”

In the next part I will tell you about Balaam’s donkey and how God stop Balaam going with the messenger.

My Portion

Do not allow anyone look down because you don’t have life experience. Those they think they are smart they themselves will fall down to learn the life. They are thinking they are wise, but they do not know anything. Let God bless you when you are young , Keep yourself pure and right. Do what is good. Do not lean on your own understanding.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.( 1 Timothy 4 : 12 )

Speak; Not Strike

Number 20: 1- 13
There were a while the nation of God (Israel) been out of the Egypt. There is been no more slavery but still there is been the lack of trust and honesty. The people of God walked long distance , they are tired , They are hungry and thirsty. But when they left their head up, there is only desert and rock and stone. No clean water Not even a tree fruit. All there is been their confusion and asking themselves : what will be our future. As we read this story in Numbers’ book. They see a dead body; their beloved Miriam died and they just buried her. Trouble behind trouble; there was no water for the community. People are complaining; their basic needs been missing.

God brought us out of trouble and we are still need him to be involved , We need him today as we needed him yesterday.

People looking for answer , here more question comes up to Moses and Aaron. And they couldn’t answer people. People are asking them why did you bring us up out of Egypt? Although they were slave but at least they had fruit to eat , they had water to drink. There is been so much complaining to Moses and Aaron.
This life encounter us with so many question, we are not able to understand and answer all.
Moses and Aaron went facedown to presence of God to get the answer from God. We need to do the same. We are not skilled to understand everything in this world, But all we know going to his presence and get all answers. Are we looking confused around? The answer is going to his presence. Are you thirsty? Just go to his presence as Moses and Aaron did it. They went, the Lord said :
“SPEAK to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water…” (Number 20: 8 )
If God told you sit, please don’t jump. If God told you move please don’t stay. If God told you to ; When you get your answer and heard from him , please do what exactly He told you to do. Don’t try modify the answer or try to show you’ve done with your ability.
Moses and Aaron they heard the Lord’s voice but they did not listen. They went to do the magic. Moses took his staff. As he went probably thinking if I only talk to that rock, what people will think about it? Or maybe it is not going to work. They thought there is a risk in this magic as they saw all work from the almighty one.
With all in their mind – instead of Moses raise his hand to worship God , He raised his arm(Nm 20 : 11) and Struck the rock twice with his staff. God told Moses speak to that rock don’t strike. God is telling me and you speak to your life what word I gave you , don’t try by your own understanding.
We see there is a lack of trust. We need to trust him. He is faithful, nothing is impossible for him.

God is telling you do magic as I told you.

When you struck your rock of life it means you dishonest the ability of God in your life. It means you don’t trust God and his ability in your life.
When you speak to that rock of your life it means you are trusting God’s word , It means you are brave enough to honour Him as Holy.
That was the reason God punished Moses and Aaron and the never entered to that promised land. What we can learn :
Try not to do the things by our own ability . Put any doubt away. Listen to him not only hear from him. Do what he told us to do , then he will be exalted ; honoured and treated God as Holy. Therefore you are able to speak to that obstacle and rock of your life , Not strike it twice to bring the answers.
God is looking to give us the solutions. When he said to you speak to that rock speak Not strike.
Please bless others by sharing this to your friends.
