The True Tree

wow, what a week! It was a really great and thankful week. I named it and i received many blessings. We had an awesome thanksgiving. How powerful God will move when you honor Him with your first fruit of your life. Grateful for everything in your life. Even if bad things stuff up your life but they are not allowed to ruin your life in Christ. Your hands are always raised to praise and your mouth to confess the goodness of his presence.

Anyway, After great night of thanksgiving , As you may know there is no official thanksgiving holiday here in Australia . But I was really moved by the Holy Spirit 3 days before thanksgiving to be thankful these days – from friends to family .. whatever we have. But my post won’t be about thanksgiving , I am sure you had a great blessing times with your family , had a little bit fun and laughter or may taste a bit of strange red wine.

God reminded me to John 15. I do not know why! Here we go. Saturday morning , need a bit time to my self. But God was pointing me to something. Before have a breakfast , I opened the Bible and I started to read John 15.

The First Verse began with ” I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman ” . Okay What God wants to remind me ! What he was talking about? As i read more and more and back again and more .. the Holy Spirit was whispering and i was picturing an image like below :

truevineHe said ” Found your self in picture , Where are you? “. I was hesitating to answer. Becasue if i sa i am branch he will say where is your fruit , if i say i am leaf again it would be same , for sure i couldn’t be the root .

Without answering the picture changed to this :

truevine“You are here” He said . Jesus is the tree and the root. Father is husbandman whom taking your fruit from the tree that you may bring more fruit for Him. If you stay with tree(Jesus) you will bring more fruit ( Holy Spirit ). Holy Spirit will teach you how to bring more fruit(love and patience ). Without Jesus you are lost.

Than quickly after than the picture changes to this :

truevineWithout Him , you can not do anything.

You shall be my disciple if you stay in my Love.

I believe God wants you too, stay in His love and bear much fruit for Him. You are His disciple when you have love to unlovable. When allowing God to work in your life. Allowing Him to have control every detail of every secret of your heart and let it deal with it. Do not allow a little deadly small secret eat you inside and stop you to bear more fruit for Him rather than go to Him and confess and open your heart to his presence , than He will be your good friend in all things you do. You are carrying God within you. Because you are the carrier of the good news and good fruit. May this end of year is the time of forgiveness or whatever is in your heart. Let God to clean it and Jesus to wash it and the Holy Spirit to sit in it. He has chosen you that you should go and bring fruit  and whatsoever you shall ask from Father , he may give it you.

Jesus says : ” These things have i spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be in full. ”

Pain and Gain

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8 : 28 )

These past few days I was so blessed to be part of God’s plan. If everything goes wrong God will turn it to good. Which this exactly happened for me. That’s why I had the privilege of publishing my first ebook about serving. I did not have time. The book was almost ready to publish but almost. Here my story:

It was last Wednesday , I took my push-bike to go around. It was evening -half-dark weather. Now I am typing hard with this hands. I went two or three laps , I was changing direction from main road to pedestrian way. But interestingly I was falling down- the way I went many times before . I was going down . I thought okay I am falling down . It happened in a second I came down with my two hands and so much pressure on my left hand came also on my right hand , specially on thumbs down bones, My left leg in knees area skin gone about a small circle .

I got up , looked around . An Indian woman was passing me that time, she just pointed me the stuff of my bike was broken around. Okay.  I took my stuff , had an incredible pain on my left thumb , home was around 1km . Slowly slowly I walked home.

I used hot water for 20 mins to put hands in it.. My pants in knees area was like fashion jeans.  sounds silly and stupid. But it was happened. I did not know it is broken . I did not go to Doctor. Rather than that I stayed and carried the pain. Morning came- my hands was puffy   and painy.

We went to doctor and my both hands was broken! Okay. I know that God loved me and his plan and purpose are great. My both hands went to plasters and not able even to drive .

God use you even in your pain to glorify His name to fulfil His plan in your life.

He knows exact and perfect time of each one of us. It does not matter what card show you the world. You always have the wining card. His will is good for you even in pain. For this ver reason nothing can stop you the good things of God in your life , no matter How the enemy trying to trap you. You are good in His hands. He did good to me. I published my eBook during this pain process for He is Good. Even only I use my only 4 finger to type with pain. I use it to glorify Him. Even the enemy trying to stop me to NOT to do it, I lay down my plan to God and He will accomplish it for me without destruction of enemy.

You are able too. His plan and purpose are good in your life. No matter what life showed you or what are you going through right now. Do it , praise Him even in your pain, tell Him I love you even in your fear , near to Him even you feel unworthy . Trust in Him even you see no sign of progress . Have hope in Him even there is no hope. Than you will see the miracles. Than your faith raise up , Than you will see God is smiling on you more.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. ( 1 Peter 2 : 9 ).

Isn’t this wonderful?  You are a holy nation. You are belong to Him , that you may proclaim his goodness into your life. Pain is good and it is your friend sometimes to come in right way. No pain , No gain. The Lord will fight for you. If you have never experienced a pain how you can understand other people in pain. Jesus did not come for healthy people but for weak and broken and pain.

But it does not mean you do something to get pain , NO , but to get gain . If you never had any pain in your life and telling me you are on right track and right plan of God in your life! I will have doubt. Almost all people somehow go through some trail in their life. I am talking the pain for the holy nation of God.

Take it as a good thing. Be consistent for God’s will and plan in your life. Knock it until the will be opened to you. You are the child of the living God. He cares for you more than anything else.

Love on the way!

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

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

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

JOHN 3 : 16

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

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

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

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

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

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

love on the way

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

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

Obey and take the land.

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

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

 

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

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

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

IMG_0552

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

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

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

Philippians 4 : 4

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

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

The Crown of Life.

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

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

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

IMG_0521

Some of the phrases a believer say when he ask:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My prayer :

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

 

Grace be with you all

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.
