Day 12 – You Are Awesome

You are uniquely created and awesomely been formed in your mother’s womb to be here. I am just writing this post to remind you that you are loved. Although you have heard this message thousands of times. God is who created you, Awesome in His beauty.  

” I praise you because you made me amazingly and wonderfully. What you have done is terrific. I know this very well. “ Psalms 139 : 14

You are wonderful because the One who made you is Wonderful. That is why King David said it well in the above verse. I am not sure how much we know it well, but he knew it very well. Do you know you are made amazingly and wonderfully? And do you know that nothing can separate you from your Creator’s love?

His thought is precious to us, sometimes we are lost in the storm of life, and we find it hard to grasp; we are made in his image. Perhaps the more we get close to him, we get more we realise His love for us. Don’t drop this; You are precious! from your corner of the world to my corner of the world – wherever we are, we can do this! We can do a life to be better. Even if this life is brutal to us, we can be! We can try again – the failure is there to make us stronger.

Let us believe again, Let us trust again and raise up to change us and the new generation for a new world. You are alive to be witness to His beauty. Let heaven see this and smile at it, Let stars keep dancing for us and the mood see our love towards each other. Be a human, a kind and loved one. Who believes that with God, everything is possible- let’s colour our dark world with a colourful pen and paint it with a joyful shout. You are truly remarkable! ❤

Questions to ponder:  Do you know how much your Creator loves you? 

Remember: You Are Awesome

Friend, I hope day 12 blessed you. If you are followed days 1 to 12- Thanks so much, still we got two days to our 14 days immersing in God’s word. Your comment indeed will encourage me to keep writing. And tell me, on which topic do you want to see more posts? And you know! I am fully blessed you are here!

Stay blessed; peace and love with you.

Day two – Rest

Resting our soul in the chaos of this world is the vital thing for every Christ-follower. It does not matter how crazy things are going around – you still your soul in the light of heavenly peace. No need to try the shadow of things, no need to chase the worldly things but, instead we can go to our Father in heaven presence and receive.

Jesus was in chaos, but we learn how he kept himself fresh by meeting the Father daily. Moses was tired, the heavy-duty of taking people out of slavery. The Lord said to Moses, “Get going, you and the people you brought up from the land of Egypt.” 

Day two – Rest / hh-high.com

God was doing everything to take them to the rest-land. He sent His Angels before them; He promised them to be with them, a promise from the God of everything.

Now, the slight stumble of today, let not disturb you as the pillar of cloud leads your way to the land of rest. He led his Nation. Don’t you think he can lead you? You are heading to the territory of restoration. 

The Lord said, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you REST- everything will be fine for you.” Exodus 33: 14 NLT

He, Himself go with you, and He gives you rest, not the kind of the rest this world gives you- short and earthly, but an everlasting one. He looks favourably on you. He knows your name- your every detail of life is known to Him. He loves you unconditionally. And His eternal rest is for you. 

Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” Exodus 33:17

The Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.” Exodus 33:19 

This year is the year of complete rest for you, your family, and your loved ones if they trust God and their promises. So look above; a beautiful year of rest is coming. 

Questions to ponder: Can you see the rest of the Lord coming at you? How can you help others go into this real rest?

Friend, I hope Day two of 14-day immersing in God’s word blessed you. If this post blessed you, share it with someone today, leave a comment; I’ll be pleased with your word of encouragement. Be with me for 12 more days.

Remeber, God is alwasy with you.

14-day immersing in God’s Word

14-day lockdown = 14-day immersing in God’s Word

We are in complete lock-down here in Australia, NSW province. Wherever you are, you may know how does it feel to be in lock-down, or perhaps your city might be in lock-down still, or still the restrictions are there. So I decided to encourage us with a word from the Bible to keep our spiritual wellbeing strong and more robust in the Lord during this time. It would be a perfect time to go deeper in God’s word and search for his will. Earnestly, seeking God’s face to your daily challenges brings clarity and peace.

I urge you, Be with me as we go together through the word of encouragement. You’ll be blessed and inspired at all level of your inner soul.

Let me remind us, How much our God is faithful. It does not matter how hard this mountain of the trial you are facing would be challenging to climb. He is there. He is there for you and me to heal us. 

Let me begin with a psalm of praise from David, and it would describe how thirsty is our souls to praise Him, to honour Him:

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your Name forever and ever.

Every day I will praise you and extol your Name forever and ever.

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. Psalms 145:1-3

We praise you, God, and We love you, Lord. You are our King, and We praise your Name for ever. You are everlasting Father. Every day we declare your praise. You are worthy of all. So let our Day one of praising your Name filled with your presence; everyone reads this post bless their heart and touch of heaven change them significantly. Oh Lord, Let this honouring be pleased to you from every corner of this planet. Whoever reads this be a good prayer to you, Lord.

Dear friend , I am here to pray for us , inspire us , reach to me by comment or contact page if you need to speak with someone – I am always here for us. Love you.

Your Friend

Great Memories Bible Verse

You are my place of safety, a strong tower that protects me from my enemies.
Psalms 61:3 ERV

God is my safe place , where I can rest forever. A place that I can hide. His power protects me from all lies of enemy. He removed all my mistakes and make them white like snow and throw them into the depths of seas which no one can know. God is my refuge. My love, my only place of rest.

You

Are

My

Place of

Safety,

A strong tower,

That protects me ,

From my enemies.

Love

oh Father..oh Father

Oh Father , Can you see my wounds from this world you made>?
Is this not enough to carry whole heavy burden of this world in me? yes True, you said ” give all your burdens to me “.
Please flame it up with your fire of passion. I am not here to prove who is right and who is wrong! I am here to have faith in you, simply live a life of love.

oh Father, Can you make a new being again and again in me and others?
It seems the world you made , hurting so bad! I am here to submit my soul to you. I know you are hearing me. I know you are believing in me , like a child learning how to walk , I am learning how to love.
Oh Father, Why is it hard to love one another? How can we see the unseen things in other without judging them or offending them. You are the one that i can only trust in the storms.20200606_171514

Oh Father, Can you make me humble? Humbler then before. remove the repeated old in me and let a new blood of you being flooded in my veins. When people see me the they see your son, washed inwardly and pured with heavenly coal.
Oh Father , You call me your favorite son , is it true you got one of the best spot for me in heaven. Is it true you are going to show me your heavens.If not, open my tired eyes of heart.

Oh Father, oh Father…

I have hope, because you have always, a door open for me. Am I young to not knowing you enough. Does my old sins stopping you to love me more? Never. Does my repeating human mistakes stopping me to love you less? may it be Never.

oh Father , my sweet sweet Father.
Change me to be the one you want me to be. Somehow you want me , you do not need me.
That makes me special and chosen.
That makes me safe and secure.
That makes me love and new.

I am holding to this oh Father.

Much love

Tuesday Devotion 14 April 2020 / Hold on

Dear beloved friends and followers . Thank you for being with us for 21 days devotions. I am truly blessed to have you here. I am so thankful i was able to share the goodness of our Father and encourage us all. The main theme of my devotions were to hold on.

20200405_001152.jpg

****

Hold on and don’t let go of Jesus in your life. In the rain , In the storm and in any situation hold on to his great presence. Everything will fade way , only the true love of God will be alive in you.

Hold on , if it means to wait for a year . Hold on, if it means to wait for years and years. Keep warm your innermost being with his loving arms. As David says “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalms 27 : 14 ). 

Take a deep breath..

Wait for the Lord..

Be strong..

Take Heart..

and wait for the Lord..

We meant to do this before , We are meant to do this now, We will do this for tomorrow.  Do not listen to enemies’ lies. Do not listen what other people will think. HOLD ON THE TRUTH of JESUS. To His promises , To His Glory , To Whom is LIFE.

Hold on to HOPE.  Think whatever is right whatever is true and whatever is noble and worthy of think . Refill yours with the HOLY SPIRIT. With His Power and With His Majesty.

With Praise and Prayers.

****

Saturday Devotion 11 April 2020 / The Saturday of Silence

” Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” ( Matt 27 : 46 )

That was the last words of Jesus on the Cross.

There was darkness over all the land. It was a different time of the year. A time that whole humanity were waiting for to happen. Father knew that time. But it was a time of silence for Him. Saturday of Silence was so heavier than before.

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus’s words echoes into heaven. I am reading the Bible and these words are echoing into my heart. But this echo, is echo of resurrection and victory over the sin. Jesus brought this to this new generation. Our 21 century , our 22 century – all centuries need Jesus and his victory.

That darkness was not  the end of line – But the empty tomb shown lightness to all of us. Brought hope to our hopeless life. Brought life to our lifeless bodies. Brought light to our darkness nights. The Saturday of Silence.

Thank you Jesus for your life, Thank you that you died on the cross for me. Thank you for your endless forgiveness and love. I am so glad that the waiting will be over on Sunday morning / the day of your resurrection. The next day of Silence will bring new life. The old will be gone and new will come.

Friday Devotion 10 April 2020 / At the Cross

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus has been Crucified on the cross. This is a day Jesus died on the cross for me and you and for the all humanity. His passion , His mission , His life saved us today for an eternal life with him. At the cross , we see a victory , A good Jesus who never fails . Let us read from Mother Teresa as she called it ” Prayer of the stations of the Cross”

” Jesus lives His Passion today in the suffering, in the hungry, in the handicapped- in that child who eats a piece of bread crumb, because when that piece of bread is finished, there will be no more, and hunger will come again. There is a station of the cross. Let us be there , Lord, with that child.

Jesus lives His passion today in the thousands who die not only for a piece of bread, but for a little bit of love, of recognition. That is a station of the cross. Let us be there, Lord, with those who are dying for love.

Jesus lives His passion today in the fall of the young people who, as jesus did, fall again and again. Let us be there Lord.

Jesus lives His passion today in the homeless people in the parks , the alcoholics and the drug-addicted. Let us not be on of those who look and do not see. Instead , Lord, let us be there at that station of the cross.

  • At Prayer with Mother Teresa , Eileen Egan

 

Meditate the Cross of Jesus, His passion , His love , His life and let us be there at that station of the cross.

20200405_001152.jpg

We have a new life in Him. As we are getting closer to the crucifixion , death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our saviour we realise more and more that God has given us new life , a kind of life never be perish. Let’s focus on His love toward us. He died for us that we can live with him forever. Even if this flesh of ours perish as the result of sin , our life with him will be never taken away from us. He provided a City for us, City of God. City of Glory , to the city of the living God.

So , See how much God loves us, rejoice in Him my soul. Oh my soul , He is God , the King of all. Today , I celebrate for his presence – yes I celebrate it even in presence of the pain and suffering. I look up , Sky is blue and Sun is shining now and the birds are singing and the dancers are dancing for the love of God.

I rest in Him today, relax in His loving arms.  Having a deep breath with an close eye , i lift up my hands, remembering his promises and embrace and celebrate  this new life and thanking Him for this beautiful gift. Can you thanking Him more?

Friday Devotion , 3 April 2020 / Brightness

20200405_001152.jpg

I am certain of this, God’s open door, would be a way of light into my world. I can confess that I am blind in most things, although I can see with the normal eyes , but my spiritual eyes need to be equipped. Yes , I need spiritual eyes to see the light of things around. My only guidance , Jesus, help me to see the things I need to see. I need Godly sight to be led in a way of Him.

As Jesus said the greatest one among you must be your servant.To be that , my servanthood character need change , need humbleness and requires brightness within me. Not empty word , I need to be bright to my self , learning to make my days bright , in that way I can shine for heaven and earth.

Then, strange things will be put aside. A brave heart must be made within me. A strong Godly peace which came from the Holy Spirit changes me inside out. To be a bright person here , in this time of history. I am His and He is mine.

Monday devotion 30 March 2020 / You won’t leave us

20200405_001152.jpg

We are honoured to know God. God’s long long time secret has been given to us. The human wanted to know this. But we have this privilege today to be friend of Jesus. He came and died for us on the Cross that we can be with him forever. How dare are we thinking that he left us? Asking how? By your worrying , by your action of not leaving everything in His hand. We put another nail on his body.

He is our friend, He wants to carry of our unstoppable non sense world, replacing it with Grace and Mercy. He won’t leave us , injured and hurt here. Sunrise to sunrise all we need to do is seeking his face. Look up the great treasure of heaven.

He hold me close to his heart. I just want to love you more and more Father. There is nothing can separate us. His rich presence wipes all my poor weakness and satisfy this thirsty heart of mine and He assures me that He stays with me Here with all chaos around and comfort this raging mind. Thank you for keeping me close to yours.

Sunday devotion 29 march 2020 / God is with us

20200405_001152.jpg

King David says in his book of Psalms “God is our shelter and strength, Always ready to help in times of trouble. ” He is always ready to pull us up and that is why He called Immanuel, God with us. Even if the earth shaken we will no be afraid. Even the way of our life changed, we will not be moved.

Think about that, even our physical world going to be shaken ,but He stays faithful and protect us. Because Our Father in Heaven , whom became flesh in Jesus , is Unshaken. Let not this time of trouble makes your heart fate. We do not need to fear as we believe in the Lord God. Replace fate with faith in your life.

Then , keep praising Him in this time, God is with us. There is a river that brings Joy to the children of God. The Lord Almighty is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge. We will not be terrified may the nation does, God’s kingdom will never be shaken but this earth kingdom may. So we believe and trust a solid God.

Thursday Devotion

What you sow now that will determine your eternal life.

what are you sowing today?

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

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

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

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