I had a small opportunity to get out of home and capture some eye-catching photos, of course within Government health order. You feel heaven on earth – you see beauty beyond beauty! When you walk through trees and greens – your soul refreshes – your mind unwinds from this world and takes you to the peaceful planet. Are you agree with me? What was a feeling you have when you walk in nature? Here are some photos to inspire us all – for a great future – a hope which never vanishes …
Which one is your favourite one? I hope you are inspired and energised like me.
We all thought 2021 would turn a better year than 2020. We hoped, and we wished the things get better and better! But, we saw another wave of sickness hit us all; our cities, countries and the planet didn’t rest yet and still eating people. Either human error or natural disaster, the world stuck in the marsh. It is our responsibility. If any one of us turns to what is right and just, this would be far better than a place. When God created Eden’s garden, it intended to be perfect. It was our responsibility to look after what he has given us.
” Who has ever given God anything?” Roman 11:35
God made all things for our enjoyment alongside living with Him. Our wisdom is limited – we still have no idea of the planet we are living on – yes, we think we know! As a new generation, we need to realise that to carry the goodness of God to the next. Another great thing we need to know is :
” God owes nothing to anyone.” Job 41:11
Act a way that pleases Him – In an honourable way. If you have been taken away with the busyness of life – instead of blaming God – find a spot to acknowledge who he is. As some saying,” I enjoy life as much as I can, and in the last years of my life, I remember Him.” God wants you to join him in the journey – or in other words, we need to join God in the journey of life. If you in hardship, Praise him and let God take your burden.
God still hears – even we see no sign of absolutely nothing!
When God put his sleeves off – He created everything out of NOTHING- your nothing is the beginning of a great story.
” Yes, God’s riches are very great! His wisdom and knowledge have no end!” Romans 11:33
Let keep our victory flag up – We have a God whose wisdom and knowledge endless. To God be the glory. Amen.
Comment Amen- if you believe it.

Friend, I hope you are blessed with this post; comment and warm my heart with your encouragement. Share/reblog this post that would be a huge blessing to others. Stay in peace.
Here some are beautiful nature photos from Buddero national park. The interesting thing about nature is they continue to proclaim the beauty of God. As some are hurting the planet, other people of all tribe and nation are admiring the voiceless sound of trees, rivers and mountains. God is hovering over all. The Bible says, “Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.” (Psalms 19:2 NLT) How come they continue to speak and praise Him with a voiceless sound? How come we don’t honour and proclaim His Name? They make Him known. Heaven and earth all belong to Him only. Let’s see his magnificence and make Him known. Are you with me in this? Thank God for this. With all our weaknesses, we can see and enjoy his handwork.
Powerful words in the Bible. The words in the Bible are life-changing. They are mostly simple but breathed with the oneness of God. During your lifetime, you are encountering heaps of words. Negative and positive, short and long, significant and insignificant. When you go to church and listen to the preacher, they use Bible words, phrases, verses and sentences( hopefully). There are so many outsiders when they come and hear – although the (mighty)Bible’s words touch them. Here I tried to bring you the most ( significant and influential) words in the Bible ( KJV version ) and for the faithful Christians are so familiar.

What word/s did you hear most? What word/s do you need to add to your vocabulary?
..I ‘ ll be the best runner. I’ll be dancing like King David did, without any fear and shame. Yes , I will be shining in every corner of darkness.
When the Spirit of the Lord works in me , I’ll be hearing like Samuel heard. I’ll be in Love more , in a deep love of trinity. Oh I’ll be like him. When the Spirit of the Lord works and lives in me I’ll be going like Philip went. I’ll be willingly obey the Father like Jesus did , I’ll cry like Jesus did once. I’ll have no arrogant spirit within me , I’ll be kind and love everyone. I’ll be a strong voice for a voiceless. I’ll be the one.
Oh , I’ll be moving and carrying the peace. I’ll shout for joy from sunrise to sunset. I’ll smile when life is brutal. I’ll give hands when is needed. I’ll offer my time when sacrifice desired. I’ll love more. I’ll clap for the God given victory .I’ll have a race with butterfly. I’ll be getting my crown of heaven. I oh I’ll be fearless and courageous. There will be no doubt, no double minded , no ugliness.
..is a place you live in. Is a place of up and down dreams where you takle the challenges. It is a place of victory , a story of broken lives and mended with a ‘H’ of Healing. Sometimes have a Hoo ..Me.
It is a place we can trust God more. Thanking Him for who we are. It took long to know this Home. Home knows my story but I don’t know home’ story !
I am praying rain for this Home. ‘Me’ story is enough , it is time my home story.
Collecting this promise:
“My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.”_Isaiah 32:18
This is what we’ve been waiting and Praying for. To be in this Home and enjoy whatever is in there. We continue to live in it even sometimes is harsh and unacceptable. We are made to be in this Home. Oh such a short time but in a long run.
We can cry in this Home.
We can fly in this Home.
We love this Home.

👏Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ?
Being united with Christ is important command that has been given to us. Christianity formed with a gathering of Jesus and his disciples. Jesus came to give us life. He came and wore humanity to teach us a lesson. Being together and pray for each other that sense of unity can heal us and it can makes us a better person. I love this. When there is a unity . There is a victory. When there is an encouragement of unity and love. There is peace and overcomer. You are not alone in your journey. Because there are people to encourage you and remind you that God is good . Keep the unity smooth.
❤️Any comfort from his love?
We need it. We thirst for it. And we know there is nothing like God’s love that can melt our harden soul. When we dwell in comfort love of our creator , we live in awe. We walk in heaven. There is no place we rather should be. God is love and we learnt that nothing can separate us from his love. When we go deep in his love. we realise we need it everyday of our life. in desiringgod.org Greg Morse has written in His article well :
The Saviour who loves you says so from above you, From high on a hill and hung up on a tree. The Saviour who loves you cries so from above you, His blood paints a picture of love you can see.
🙏Any fellowship together in the Spirit?
Lootfy Levonian explains well in his book called THE HOLY SPIRIT IN FELLOWSHIP. ” This fellowship brought to existence on the day of Pentecost, when the believers received the gift of the Spirit.”
This step is very similar to unity with Christ. But mostly means we need to have a close relationship with the Holy Spirit. Our attitude will be change when something new created in us. We are not the person used to be. We see the life around, very differently. We, now, know how we would smell a flower. The whole atomespher will change, because heaven is in you now. You do the things by not your power but in His ability you lean in.
So, it’s not adequate if we go to church, but there is a need of repentance.
If there is a need of closeness to the Holy Spirit. Resolve this in your private prayer. Your stillness can turn the face of God toward you.
🤗Are your hearts tender and compassionate?
God looks at the hearts. His mission is to change the hearts. He is the creator of our heart and soul and body. His tender love and compassion is inherited in us. We have the DNA of his goodness grace in us. If he is good so do we. Jesus even said, you do greater thing when you believe in me. If we only can break the bridge of doubt between us and God, then we can truly know who He is.
Soften your heart. Love one another. Help somone. Rescue a human from falling. Be with a lonely. Have compassion. Pray continously, if you can help somone financially. All you have is his. And he is yours. Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, working together with one mind and purpose.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit from Philipianns 2 : 1
“Why must we suffer? If there is an all-powerful God, Why does He allow suffering and pain? Why do animals or children suffer? ”
There are questions which has been seen on the cover and back of the book. I did not buy this book to find the solution of pain in our world. I bought this book to understand why there is a pain in such a beautiful world. If God is so beautiful why we see the face of ugly things inside and outside of the our life. The problem of pain book is classic and heavy written well. Some phrases you need to read again to understand what does this mean really. He starts with divine omnipotence and divine goodness than talks about human wickedness followed by the fall of men. Human pain has been explained well in two chapters and than with a short explanation about the hell. He gave one chapter to animal pain than finishes with heaven chapter.
” I do not think it is our fault that we cannot tell the real truth about ourselves; the persistent, life long, inner murmur of spite, jealousy, prurience, greed and self-complacence, simply will not go into words. ”
“… We must learn to walk before we run ”
” The guilt is washed out not by time but by repentance and the blood of Christ: if we have repented these early sins we should remember the price of our forgiveness and be humble.”
[ Human Wickedness chapter 53-55 pgs ]
This book is a real treasure in your library indeed. It is worth to read it again and again. Although you find out that the vocabulary of the book is a bit old but this is not going to put it less in anyway at all but it helps the readers to go in depth of the meaning of what he is trying to tell.
C.S Lewis continues ” What is good in any painful experience is, for the sufferer, his submission to the will of God..”
As the problem of pain book has been written on October 18 1940 impacted millions people’s life. C.S Lewis wrote more than 30 books. Learn more about his here.
My suggestion is to read this book. Learn about the new way of living as he mentioned. The room of improvement is vast and long. There is something beautiful that Lewis going to teach in this book. Find it. As I said earlier there is no solution – all of us living in the falling world. There is no way to escape that. But there is a cure how to face it. By the Blood of lamb Jesus Christ. Lewis knew that the only way to understand all suffering we are bearing right now is to reach in His loving presence.
There are 1483 reviews on GoodReads for this book the rate is 4.08.
The chapters are clear and transferred the message with clarity.
I have never seen in my whole life such this one. I got a phone call Last Friday morning that somebody stolen our (city) a gift beautiful bike from inside our home. I was shocked a bit. I had experience that they stole my bike before with lock. Inside home , in the back that no one can even see! How could it be possible? I was really upset about this. Not because of that I am belong to the things because that bike was a gift that I brought with me here in Sydney from Europe. Apart from that it was a really good run one.
I came back from work. Family explained what happened to the bike. I went and checked the place . they left the helmet and took the bike with lock. I was calm but really upset about this. How earth this could happen? I prayed.
I went to our local police to report as they may come back to stole other things. Friday gone.
This verse highlights:
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. Ephesian 4 : 28
Saturday my brother called me and said did you look the gumtree may they are selling there? But I’ve checked the facebook market. Here , there my beautiful bike selling it only $90!!! My sister message them said if still is available and they replied ” No sorry sold”. I got the facebook account – as we found it is a fake account and all their friends are fake! Yes.
I was thinking God you are so good, how good you can be that you have forgiven those they stole , they are thieves, they are murderers , they are far away from you , even indeed , you invited them to your kingdom , yep one was next to you when you have been crucified on the cross. You forgiven him. And you brought him into your light. we are living in a world that Satan put his thief heart into people’s life. I know , you know there is a lot of story behind this. But in this century people are hungry. Basic item of life is in need. Some of you already encountered those around you possibly. But what is the bible view of this? Obviously as I mentioned in the above verse you can see the clear view of bible. ” Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor“.
I pray for those they are really in need of something in their life. I pray for their mind and heart that will be changed. I pray for their hands that be used in honest and integrity. That not only they work in honesty also they meet someone else in need. I pray God wash their life with his presence. And give them a new identity in heaven. I am not surprised when I see the thieves on the earth will be my neighbour in heaven, Yep saved and washed by the blood of lamb. And shouting how good is our Father. Once, we all been dead in our sin and in the dark , lost! But God came for all of us. Who are far , who are near.
Exodus 20:15 “You shall not steal”. It is the one of the 10 commandment! ( at the moment I am talking about the physical things , stealing can be vary )
There are tones of bible verses about thieves , robbers , stealing … humans are struggling in this still in this century.
I want to take the word of God , strongly be firmed in my position. I wan to mark a goodness in people’s heart. I want to follow Christ. I am trying to reach in his heart , stay there forever. One day this world will be redeemed. There will be no thief , there will be peace forever. I hold this until Christ arrives again in His Glory.
Share your view? What do you think? How do you say to God these things?
I close my eyes and see my self in the hands of Angles. They are protecting me from the enemies. I look right the good army of God there for me. I look left the best army of God are there. I look behind the flood of Angles of God there for me. I look straight , He is there for me. Let the enemy come , I am protected by Him. Let the mountains come I can climb them to the victory. Let the ocean of unknown comes , I am known by Him. Empty hands – heart full of awe of Jesus. Broken of the sinful world but full of Joy of his love.
In the world but not of it- relax and enjoy the miracles of the only One in my life. I was in rush but not anymore. I am patient in His meekness. I see thousands of thousands are falling next to me – but I stay firm because He is holding me. Not anymore yoke of this world – but carrying the cross of freedom everyday. Singing a new song in my heart – one step close to his heart , to be like him- light in this darkness.
Are you thinking about your future ? His got is in hand. Are you thinking about tomorrow? His got it , just give Him thank for today and leave tomorrow to Him. Open the doors of heaven by your prayer day in and day out. Change your inner look by being like Christlike.
The best things in life are not outward things instead ; they are inward things.
One dream , One life , One God can make your heart united with him. Close your eyes and repeat this after me: ” I am beautiful , wonderful made by loving Father. My identity is in Him , His angels are protecting me , I have more then enough – his grace and forgiveness that is all I need. ”
Take one important step in your life and let the love of God change your heart in whatever you do. You are loved – no seriously you are ! Who is like you? no one. you are you. your smile and love are special for somebody. You don’t need others acceptances , you have been accepted by Him. Made by Him , Loved by Him , Shaped by Him. Oh, I am loving Him more – because He first loved me. You have your own protection Angel. He is standing by your side. The Spirit of the truth will set you free.

Today, It is in my heart to talk about Joy and Smile. What makes you smile ? What is in your heart that makes your heart have joy even you may be in the storm? Share with me , comment here , ask your friends and loved ones , ask them how they view you.
God loves your smile , But the reality is , these days it is hard to have a smile on face. The broken world putting so much pressure on us and it gives us every reason not to do so. I Confess that I am not that type of person which in every corner of city when I walk do the big smile. I need to have reason to have smile 🙂 . That , which this sinful nature of humanity need to have. A REASON!. But it does not mean I have not have Holy Spirit Joy in me.
When you have an inner joy within you – the outer smile will come anyway.
Specially the enemy of our faith target those they are young. They have less experience of life. Our young people are more depress these days why? Because enemy likes it. But God says ” I destroy the plan of enemy and I will give you joy “. Jesus says ” Stand up and Arise ” . I learnt that I do not need REASON to have smile . I can smile without any worldly reasons. Jesus my reason to smile. He is my Joy and everlasting life. There is a story in Bible that from last night seat in my heart. Jesus and his disciples were passing a city , People were going to carry a dead young man which he was the only hope of his widow mum. They were carrying a dead hope of his young son. All her smile were fade away and replaced to a big grieve in her heart. The Pain in her heart was unstoppable. But Jesus was on the way. The life of all humanity. The real hope.
Jesus came in to the crowed – and said to his broken mum -” Don’t cry”. Joy is here. He went on and touch and said ” Arise young man “. God wants us arise and smile in this broken world. He wants to have his joy carrying within us everywhere we go. He is near with us as we carrying his joy and smile every road we are taken. I am content with this. I have more joy in Him. I have more focus in my life – because my gaze is on him and I am not distracted of beauty of this world. It is yours. God is yours. His peace is yours. His love is yours. I don’t lie if I say he knows you by name , I don’t want to fill your heart with a bunch of good words. I am going to be filled with his promises, He is real. Right there with you. Don’t lose your heart and smile , keep going , keep moving friend there is an open door for you right every door is shut. There is a smile for you right the bitterness of the world is there.
Joy is a portion for those who love God and following Him. And the joy of the Lord is yours. keep smiling.
I want to know your heart God. I am searching for the best in your presence Lord. I am not looking to myself and saying oh I am not look like you! Instead , I am looking to mirror and saying I am blessed to be your child. I will never change the word in my mouth – My mouth and lips will praise you forever. I wear a new cloth of you. I am so lucky to know you. Funny is this world not to accepting you Jesus! They ignore you for nothing. Even , though , You love them and give them dreams and visions.
I want you more than anything else in this world . You are my life and every breathe I am taking right now is yours it is meant to be yours. Fool are those put their trust in object of this world. I am humble for your plan and purpose in my life. How can I prepare myself for the best? Tell me the secret of your heart Jesus. Open up my inner being to know you better and better. Takes away all my iniquity- Let your blood again and again wash me over.
I am forever thankful for the Cross. For your loving heart , I am in awe Jesus. Tell me how to be like You? Tell me how to be the best of You? Tell me the whisper of your precious love. Let me drink your tears of Joy and drawn me into your ocean of righteousness. Sanctify me and accept my heart repentance with an honest worship of my windy heart. See , take it away if there is anything that you don’t like – make it your Home. Thank you for sharing your goodness with me , Thank you that you create a safe place for me , Thank you for simply loving me without knowing me. How great you are?
When this world gives me Pain , You give me Peace. When this world gives me trouble , You give me Truthful. When this world gives me lie , You give me Love. When this world gives me hassle , You give me hope , When I am faint away you comfort me and tell me have Faith. I see you everywhere , your hands doing miracles all around the world. Fool are those denying it and bless are those believing it. You are my leader. I am learning a class that you are my teacher.
My confess is this: to love you more , to know you more and to obey you right! Teach me your way – in a way of yours. I love you Jesus – Lucky my heart that have a place for you. I am preparing for you. This is your home.
They say , you can not do it, but God says you can and you are able to do it. Because you have a God which he can do impossible in your Life. God does not complex the things and make it better, He creates new things out of nothing! He uses a very simple formula. Your Faith, my faith and their faith. People do not believe in simple things that is why here and there make it hard for them to believe in miracle! That is why the wisdom of men is off to reach there!
You need recovery? believe it and receive it. You need a breakthrough? keep believing till you get the answer. You need healing? believe He can do it for you; according to his Will. Indeed today I am writing for you , is a miracle! I draw faith like a plant , that need water and root. We all need water and root to be grown. Have you ever been in desert before? I have been there for a short period of time – The most important thing is Water – not salty water ! a sweet water to be drinkable! God is faithful if we stay on God’s line , He will do what he promises . I know , sometimes I have been off the track , But I have always tried to get back in track. The message of redemption is not for couple of unique people but rather for everyone out there. You know what? It is the matter of Choice.
I am an ordinary man , with an extortionary dream. It is nothing wrong with you to have a dream higher than your situation that is where makes your life much excitement. Where you can challenge yourself in a healthy way. He knows everything we do , He knows our comings and goings, He knows what you eat for breakfast and knows what will happen to your tomorrows! But , He gave us free will to choose , He does not push us to, rather with love and grace call us! The word of ” Faith ” standing out a lot these days for me, every verse I read pointing me to it, every word I am hearing reminding to it , every sermon I am listening pointing to it and every music I am discovering , showing a new way of it. If you ask the greatest artist in the word what is important in your life – They will say it is Faith. Faith to what you do and what you believe! I am asking you my dear friend. What you believe in it. Let your past go , grab the future. Do not overthink , Trust God and live a life of excitement.
If someone broke you heart , Love is the way to forgive them! If someone hurt you , Love is the way to forgive them. If your home is cold and do not see any love in it – please please keep going and do not give up in loving each other. Let the Love light your Home and Faith keep it alive. Even without preaching to someone you can touch their heart by Love. A divine love of God change you inside out, it will change others around you. We are not perfect people, but we have someone is perfect , His name is Jesus. Me and you , we are in a journey to live a life of faith and love. This is not a new word , This Love was before the creation of the World. Can you forgive someone ? Can you love someone ? Can you root in it ? Can you..
Let all that you do be done in LOVE. 1 Corinthians 16:14
Like a soft rain – pouring out in my heart. Like a warm flame in the winter , like a whisper to my soul. Holy Spirit the friend of mine – Who makes me whole. He is the meaning of my life! I am astonished without Him. He is unbelievably beautiful. Such an awesome God. He is like a green forest of peace for me. He is like a calm deeper than oceans.
He is very sensitive-strong spirit. In the moment you confess Jesus as your saviour – He will come and dwell in you. He is a really good mate. He is every where with you. In the light of the day – and in the day dark of the night!
When I am speechless – He speaks behalf of me. When I am sleep – He awakes me up. When I am lost – He directs me to path.
I am so thankful to this good mate of mine – who was , who is God. When I walk in the darkness – He is my light. When I am heavy with the pain of the world , He is there for me. He is my helper right here.
“The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity. He is the bonding element. This bonding is a wonderful effect of faith in Christ. It is creative. It brings about a new kind of oneness not even known in the closest of earthly families.” ― Reinhard Bonnke, Faith: The Link with Gods Power

“Wait for the Papa; be strong and take heart and wait for the Papa”. Psalms 27 : 14
I always say to people around me . what is your passion? Follow it. It is very important to know what you like , what is that you comfortable with it. Yes this is right sometimes( or most times) we do the things are not our passion. But at least you can spend a few hours a week to follow and satisfied yours with it. The importance thing is here , you need to align your passion with God’s plan in whatever you do. If you like to play piano and have a passion for that. Go ahead and learn more and play for people who are thirsty and use it to bring more people to kingdom of God. If you have a passion to fix cars , go for it and have faith through your job God’s be glorified.
Jesus had one Passion . Do the W I L L of Father!
Here , Now , my passion is to encourage you most to know how you are valuable in the kingdom of God. My ultimate goal is glorify the Father. I am trying to love you more through my writing and let you know in everything you do IF YOU HAVE FAITH AND PASSION then know that God is in control. Does not matter what industry you are in working or even may you will be a mum or a full time minister. God want you gives a new passion in His Name. It was the Christ’s Passion that i have courage to inspire you now . Because His Passion saved us . Do your passion help others as well?
If your P A S S I O N is not line with God’s W I L L , may you need to re-align it again.
I pray God talk to you through this , And bring a new Passion to serve Him most.
Bible says : “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men”. Take a moment and focus on this , have a deep breath now. Know that it is not late anyway! I do not want to speak high-spiritually. I do not want talk about the things we can not reach there. I am talking about a passion for life and people and God you may have. If we only know the meaning of the passion of Christ for us than we may realise what is the meaning of the passion for life and people around us. I love to have passion. I love to motivate my life and people around me. I know sometimes i am not there yet. But i will try to do so. They said in Christianity, the Passion (translation of Greek πάσχειν paschein, ‘to suffer’) is the short final period in the life of Jesus covering his visit to Jerusalem and leading to his execution by crucifixion, an event central to Christian beliefs.But it is not the only thing – whole bible there are a lot of people with Passion but the ultimate one highlighted in Christ job on the cross.
Passion is Life , Life is a Passion to follow. I am not here to write a systematic way of Passion you can follow on. I am here to stir up your spirit to find what is in your heart with God. It is right to say that having passion for God is doing what he says.
Some of the things help you to find your passion:
1- Pray constantly and consistently.
To know your passion is to know what God’s will in your life. The only way to spend time with him in prayer. Have a close relationship, That is it. Telling to myself too.
2- Be still and know that He is God.
Take heart. Slow down. keep away so much distractions around you and have a moment of meditation on His word. Find out what is God is telling you in the storm of life. He does not want us be drawn to our own world .
3- Know what you like and what you do not!
Sometimes you have to know what is that you most like and enjoy doing it! peruse it even maybe 1 day a week! I don’t know what you like. There is somethings in life motivates you ( in a right way i am talking about) . Maybe some sports ! Maybe music! Maybe helping others! Maybe your career!… When all eventually reach to glorify God, why not? It is time to take action. In God’s eye moment you can see better.
4- Life is beautiful and you can make it more beautiful
Do not listen to lies of enemy , Life is beautiful and with your passion you can make it even more beautiful than before. You have victory inside so you have victory outside too. when your soul is fed, well, you are filled better outside. That helps you out to know what is your passion in life.
5- Purpose and plan
The Double P’s help you to have a better view and tell to God that ” I have these on my hands Lord , would you please help me to establish it? ” . When God sees you have a right heart than definitely He will give you passion to continue to do it.
People always looking for the best , But i am telling you , you can find the best in the worst! In the worst moment you have opportunity to do your best , that is the time of flourish of your Faith and Passion in God. You cannot jump up the ladder , you need to go step by step up.
Galatians 5:24 “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
I know you had a hard year. But this does not mean you are going to have the same year as past. God knows your heart and He searches it. The framework of Christianity is; we believe a God He is alive and active in His people’s life. It is not for make a frame and hang it on the wall. The Bible is full of promises of God.
Love of God make a way ; even it seems there is no way.
When God opens the door who is able to shut it . When He promises to You, It is yours no one can steal it from you. Have Faith . Still He will make a way for you. A new day coming; a new year’s coming. Just open your mouth and say Thank you Lord. Let your heart shout with thanking God. There is no reason for you to not believe in it. Build your faith in Him and let your heart be full. You are part of God’s plan, Be thirsty to be in His presence and in every step He will show you what to do next.
Have Hope , There is always a new day. Always a way that God can provide for you. The humans may help you , may hurt you , may love you and may hate you. But your creator never leave you or forsake you.
Jesus is praying for you. He is thinking for you. It means He is in love with you. Are you worry about How he is going to accept me? Let HE figure it out for you. You just come and give your burdens to Him. Most of us have a problem to not confessing . we really need to do it . Tell to God from zero to 100. Everything happened and/ or you are worry about to happen for you. And let the sovereign Lord deal with it. God says “I do not call you a servant , I call you friend “. You are the friend of God. You are His. And He is able of ALL. Don’t worry He knows which way is the best one for you.
He is the Door.
For many reason God will make a way for you. I will give it two reasons for you here ( as we are not dictating Him , His grace cover it all )
1- God is Love
Jesus came on the earth to give us life more and more. He had plan for us before the creation of the world , it means He loved us first. That is why He sent His lover Jesus Christ for us on the earth to establish the Father’s love for us. Are you with me?
He is the love and He is the way.
2- He is in love with you
Yes , Not only the nature and characteristic of God is Love. Also He is in love with you personally. He is going to meet your needs individually. Are you serious? The God of universe and everything in it , coming and meeting my needs personally. This is crazy . This is the story of crazy love. Yes it is , He is in love with you and you , because , you are uniquely and wonderfully made in His image.
So believe it in 2017 God will make a way for you. He will open the new doors of greatness for you. You will be healed . You will be whole and you see the wonders of mighty God and You and your surrendering people will glorify Him. You will get strength in Him. You are blessed and everyday of your life will be full of His presence. Trust in Him and know He is with You.
God made you alive with Christ. You are who are used to be. God made you perfect inside but this world filled you with its earthly and fleshy things. You can be born again and be backed to what you supposed to be. Reaching to His fullness and again be filled with His spirit. But this time the Spirit of God whom raised Jesus Christ from died will raise you. You are not anymore bound or circumcised by this world.
You are belong to Him.
Bible says : “having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.” ( Colossians 2 : 12 )
Baptism is not a tradition thing so, but , rather , it is a symbol of that ‘ you are not belong to the world ‘ , and , shows and declares that ‘ you are belong to Him ‘.
God want you to be in the world and shine to others and display in a proper way that you are belong to Him. But the think is here where we have been still in our own way of selfish doing things. God made you alive with Christ , that time you are able to shine in earthly world. The fortune is God made a way for us , still , we have time to come back to Him. Still we have time to confess. It is not late. You have a story to tell. You have gone a way that no one experienced before, share it for the glory of God. He forgave you , that is a matter.
You are forgiven.
Paul says your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ. it is hard for most of us to put off our whole self things, and it is hard to say sorry , it is hard to say ‘ i was wrong ‘. But by doing that you will be circumcised by Jesus. And that is a key to be alive in Him. Are you following me? You need to put off your earthly mind and grab a new heavenly cloth to wear. Trust is a word that helps you to go forward in this mission.
You need to be an owner in the unseen world.
We all looking for the thing from this world which we can see! Like House , like car , like everything is touchable , because it is more reasonable for us . Because it is more enjoyable for us. But the unseen world it is not something you can touch , rather , you can choose to be there. It is an eternity life not shortly period of time. May you can not touch it now but you are waiting for it to be tangible for you. Before that , you need wear the Christ . Between , so many , being lost , because they could not wait enough to reach there. Are you with me? You need to wear the light. Your old self need to gone away and a new self need to come .
You are alive in Christ.
These past days were really blessed days for me. May it was not tangible for me , but you feel it , you are blessed. Because you are following to be blessed , you are knocking to be opened, you are pushing to reach there, you are hoping in Christ. Free from any human rules , and having spiritual mind helps you to pass through in the valley of darkness. Be connected to head ! in CHRIST.
You are a child of God , You are made in His image . Close every past-door of Condemnation and enter to His glorious presence. There is a heart beating for you, there is a mind thinking of You, There is a Holy-heavenly-presence wants to touch you. Would you be alright during your earthly life? All you need to do is lean on Him and cast your mind to Him.
We have a strong City;
God makes Salvation
Its walls and ramparts.
Open the gates. ( Isaiah 26 )
We are living in a good world which has gone wrong! Now , In this world we can not see the good things around. The suffering starts from us till to end of the earth. You are not alone and you are not the only person experienced all sorrows in your life. Everyone somehow , less or more have this on. We all on our journey. If we have been living in Heaven now , probably i would not starts this blog to inspire you today. We are needy people and we need each other. we need to love each other because still we are far away from the source although the source is very close , but till that day we are going to live with the source we need to cry , push , fight , try and live-on life.
You are so close to ‘the source’, In fact , ‘ the source ‘ is within you.
May you are on a process now. May you are feeling it . May you have passed it on , May you are only 1-inch gap to have a breakthrough or may you are so close to source and everyday having a vision and living in the dream. Whatever you are in. DO NOT FEEL ALONE. We all been there, even Jesus been there. Yes , Jesus was there too. A night before right He is going to die for us , He was on so much pressure and stress. But He never give up . He prayed and confessed to His Father.
Trust in the Lord, Trust Him in your way , Trust him when messed up , Trust Him and keep going , do not frame yourself to an idea or a situation. The Circumstances are not allowed impact your future , because you are a child of God. When there is no answer , trust Him more, When there is nothing around trust Him. Walk and talk to Him. His spirit is in You. You are His beauty forever.
You are beautiful enough even with your mistakes.
When two people are in love. They are really in love , They love each other even with mistakes . Even when one of them make horrible mistakes ,Still the True-love will forgive. It is the same the love of Jesus for you. Does not matter how horrible you have been far away from Him. Does not matter How hard the life beat you , Does not matter What you done , His TRUE_LOVE and GRACE will cover it. I am pointing to you , because you need to be reminded , I am telling to you because i am urged to tell you so. In fact not me, but the Spirit in me , says You are child of God. ” O Lord , You are my God ” ” I will exalt you and praise your name , you are my life , Thank you for laying down your life for me that i can live today “.
Not only live, I can be light in this world.
You are the light of this dark world , Be single-minded not Narrow-minded. Be determined and a believer . A follower of ‘ whom died for you, and rose again ‘.
When you are weak His is Strong. When you are falling He is pulling you up , When you are lost , He is looking for you. What you do instead? Loving Him.

Please share this post if touched you heart which be a great blessing for others.
Yesterday was a special day for the earthly people, the Moon was closer to earth and they said is ‘ super moon ‘ , even in Australia was ‘ super , super moon ‘. The last time this event happened 64 years ago! I couldn’t capture this special moment , when i looked out , the moon was behind the cloud.
Here is Australia , WA , behind the Fremantle War Memorial at Monument Hill on November 14, 2016. They Called it Supper Supper Moon.
Isn’t this beautiful. Isn’t this forever love. The last time was 64 years ago when moon was this much closer.
God made two great lights–the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. ( Genesis 1 : 16 ). He created moon for us. He created to govern it for the night. Look at this , Our God thought for us for everything , even when we are sleeping , His MOON is over top of us like ‘ sleep light lamp ‘. His lighting over us every night. He is thinking for you . You are not unknown for Him. Because our God is NOT unknown . Believers and non-believers known His greatness. His Moon for every one. Good and bad , fair and unfair , rich and poor.
He is the God of everyone. But Not everyone accepting Him as the God.
He Promised, He will never forsake you. He Made all the things to show you that ‘ you are still His love ‘ and nothing can separate you from it. You are His Supper Supper Love. Did you know that?
For God so Loved the World . God does not hate the World , He loved the World. But think about that . He did not love the empty world. He loved the world because you are in it. Yes he was pleased what He made the things, but He loved the world because you are living in it and you care about His creatures as well. Because He loved you and me He gave His only Son. Oh Please my dear , ‘ HIS SON’ . Who can give his only one to sacrifice and to rescue us. But God did! For you , For me , For us. That we can believe in Him and receive the eternal life.
With all beauty around , Still God is saying this is nothing , come and i will show you more. believe in me and you will see more , You see the things you have never seen and imagined before. There is a question here need to be asked. Do you want more?
There is nothing in this world you can or could find to fulfill ‘ this more ‘. But God can do . lift up your head above and see the sky. There is more for you. Jesus came himself and died for you to say there is more for you. Here you go , for now the Holy Spirit comfort you. I am coming soon and show you my perfect love. You are not living base on your feeling but rather you are living base on His promises in your life. Feeling comes and goes but God’s promises are steady forever in your life. despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
God , Supper Supper Love is You. God First First Love is You.
Yes , You are the one He pleased. You are the one He cares , You are the one He thinks , You are the one He acts , You are the one He loves , You are the one He Fights , You are the one He knows , You are the one He anoints.
This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.1 John 2:25

Have you been blessed ? Bless me with sharing this post to your friends and family.
I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. ( Philippians 3 : 10 ).
I want to know Him. I want to become like Him in anything. Here Paul saying i preferred to loos anything and gain the Christ. I want to know who He is. I want to know who he is which really changed me inside out. I’ve never had this experience before. It seemed impossible for me to change .My eyes was closed , to regulations and the law surrendered me. I was seeing the things through the lanes of this world not Him. I want to know that person which shifted my prospective.
By knowing Christ , your prospective , your inner being will be shaped in a positive way . Somehow you will be a new creation . I want to know Him because He lift me up and will show me who I am in Him.
The power of His resurrection somehow will resurrect me from my death. The power of His resurrection will make me alive. The power of His resurrection will heal me . I gain eternal life , I pass a face of shame and condemnation to reach His glory . I’ll be like Him.
Paul is saying because he was longing to know Christ. He was longing to become a person like His master. Who is your master today? . The master I am introducing is not from this world although He came and died for me and you, but He overcame the world. Yes , this is the beginning of our journey. The journey is the destination and the process is the goal.
Sometimes we need to be like a baby to know Him
I wan to know Him , whom loved me and loving and caring me everyday . His hands are powerful and His mighty power above all. Can you tell Him today from your heart , that I want to know you Jesus?.
Pauls is writing to Philippians church , a church which he established in His second missionary journey (52AD). Remember God sent Paul by a vision to Philippi. So this city needed to know Christ. The Sin has broken our relationship with our creator , that’s why God sent His only son to heal this and to offer us eternal life. Now we have chance to know Him. Now we have this opportunity to open door for Him to coming in our hearts. Jesus says I sand behind the door and knock whoever open the door, i will come in and have dinner with Him. Do you want to know Him? Have dinner with Him, open up your heart for Him, He is ready to know You but where are you?
You need to take step , God doesn’t force you because He created you with a free-will. He does NOT want bad and ugly things for you, He is for you. Yes sometimes we need to turn back to His arms , He will give us some signs . He is your Father , Your heavenly Father, You are an apple in His eyes. Do not let your past , present and future stop you to know Him.
The most amazing thing you can possibly do is ‘to know Him’.
God is ready .
Wanna be freed ? know Him
Wanna be healed? know Him
I’d like to offer this song of mine to all of you:
I wanna know you
I long to see you
Show me your glory
Show me your mercy
Love .. Joy..Patience .. will be mine
I wanna be like you- Open my eyes
I wanna be YOU- open my heart.

If this word encouraged and talked to you please send me your testimony through the comment.
Today was a run day for me. I took a challenge and went to run outside.
I did not set a goal from the first but when I was about 2 KM , I slowly slowly think about I can do more. I went 3 Kilometres and I said to myself , ‘ I can do more ‘ .
Saturday run , was full of fun and expectation. 3 and half kilometre I felt my leg are so heavy and I can not move it , It was like you are carrying the 10 kilo of weight each leg. My heart was coming out and beating for 150 beats a minute( I guess so ). But I promised to myself this would be the last lap , I am going to finish it at 4 KM.
Even I did not set a goal for a first time, but I took the challenge and have a little taste about my self . I did not run for about 8 to 9 month ( maybe more). But later one I found my goal and then create one.
Here look at my end result :
I ran 24 minutes without stop , about 4 kilometres . This is a really good outcome for the first day.
Now on, I create a goal for next week to beat my 4 km . I set the goal not high and not very low . I set it to 5 KM.
This is reminded me to encourage you today. Even you see there is no goal. make it , create it and see how God will bless you in that.
The goals directs you in a place that you never been before, Create one.
We read it in Proverbs 21 : 5
” Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; ” .
If you have a long run , you need to plan it. It is like this , you went to Picnic but you did not plan it to where to go , what to bring? It is similar.
Set a goal today and tell God to bless you in that. Set Goal to pray with your family , Set a goal to have fun with your loves ones and together make a better world for each other.
You plan it and God will establish it , Do not worry how establish it, God will do the rest for you , because he already know what plans are the best for you.
Jeremiah 29 : 11
‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’
There is a hope and future in Gods plan. when you commit your goal to Him. Hid eyes are watching you all the way when you are running. He cares you will be tired in the middle , He knows it.
Having motivation and goal is Gods desire.
If you want the windows of opportunity be opened for you, Do not neglect to create a goal.
Speak to God and set a goal for you life. Let Him flourish it for you. He gives grace to humbles .
And Above all, Do not worry about tomorrow, because todays worry is enough for today. And rest in God everyday.
Why we are confuse around and looking for answers? Why we do not know which way to go?
And so many other questions that no one can answer you?
Have you ever asked a question that no body in this world can answer that? If you are that person , you are welcome here because I can not answer your question too.
I can not answer your question why people are suffering now, I can not answer any of your question that I can not! But I have one thing that hopefully answer your all questions. And will set you free as soon as you get it in your heart.
but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. (Romans 8 :5 )
You need to set your mind in the Spirit and what the Spirit desires. When you live in accordance to this you will get your all answers.
There is power trusting in the Spirit of God.
When you set your mind and heart with the Spirit, everything else will not be really matter. What I mean by that? When Christ is in you , You have already what you need. Let not your mind be led by the flesh.
You can not please God and the world together.
When your mind led by the Spirit you have life and peace. Do not trust your flesh. Trust in Him. Be in realm of God that you may please God and get abundantly blessings.
I know , There is always something, someone to blame it for.
You made by the Spirit.
You are not belong to flesh instead to the Spirit. You praise Him in the Spirit , You see Him in the Spirit. So why are you trying to find your answers and peace and joy in the flesh?
I love you, And that is why I am writing to you, because this is my mission to show you the love of God which is in the Spirit , not flesh. If I was doing what I am doing now in flesh I could not keep it up. I am writing because telling you that Jesus Loves you and He cares for you. You can not see Him , But He can see you, that what the Faith means, that what the Hope means till one day you will see Him face to face, but for now you have to think , act and be in the Spirit.
You are the friend of God when you set your mind in the Spirit( be believing). You are light. You are becoming like Him.
You are found, You are loved , You are healed and You are free…
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8 : 39 ).
Do not let anyone , anyone ..take your Hope in Him. He is coming soon.
Oh my Jesus , Bless whoever is reading this now and show them your love and mercy . Father pour out your spirit over them and over the family and household. In Jesus Name
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 “.
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.
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.
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 .
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.
“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.
For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10 : 13
Choose love today. Choose Him.

Please send me your encouragement comment and testimony and how this decision shape your love forever.
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.
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
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.
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.
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”.
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

… Laughter and craziness
…to be light and salt and to be used and not
… Worth to live in

… Moments and memories
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14 : 6 .
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 “.
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?
“ 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.
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.
“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.
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.
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
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.
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?
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.

It will be awesome share this to someone may be a bless for them.
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 ”
” 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 ”

Please , bless me with your comments and sharing with your friends.
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 .
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.
