Three things we need to hold firm till the end 

We all have something to hold on to; something can help us in our time of need. Being in control of our lives is in our human nature, but most of us forget about the victory part of our lives, including the failing segment, making the victorious wheel. But we don’t lose hope; we get up and start again with all the burden of the world. As the Bible says, ” And we are God’s house if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ.” Hebrews 3:6b.

The three below are we need to hold them firm till the end. They are a vital part of our lives, and we need constantly remind them in our daily walk with Jesus. Let at least try and practice them.

1- Bold Confidence 

This might be defined as ‘complete trust and assurance. “ If you have confidence in someone, you feel that you can trust them, and you feel sure about your abilities, qualities, or ideas.”- Dictionary.com defined. Our bold confidence in Christ is more than any definition in any dictionary; It is heavenly confidence that can take you in a place of total security. But, this does not mean out of space; it is here in our hearts where Christ lives forever. 

2-The rejoicing of the Hope in Christ

Saint Paul said, “rejoice in the Lord always,” King David said, “rejoice.” Rejoicing is the choice, a choice that willingly comes from a glad heart. Jesus saved us from our sinful world; He died on the cross and rose from the grave. Now, we don’t need to sacrifice animals to wash our sins. And all our mistakes and disobedience has been washed in the Blood of the Lamb. These are some of the reasons we can rejoice in the Lord. Merely our rejoicing is in His presence, and perhaps our main gladness is in Jesus himself.

3-Trust

” If you trust someone, you believe that they are honest and sincere and will not deliberately do anything to harm you.” Dictionary.com defines. I am not here to preach about trust; I am 100% sure you heard lots of the time about how crucial it is to trust Jesus. Typically, we trust those near us, right? Like our parents, our brothers, our sisters… If we know how to trust humans, then we should learn to trust God. There are heaps of verses in the Bible to encourage us to trust in the Lord. You are blessed when you trust him; let us remember our feelings comes and goes, but keep trusting God is such a delight treatment to our souls. ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. ” Proverbs 3:5.

So, All three above gives you peace, and they are the branches of other noble, just and right things. Prepare your heart, mind and body for it—the above list required closeness to the Lord. Make time. Make it happen, and all will be as natural and not hard to do them.

Day 7 /14- Serve yours , Serve others = Serving the Living God

The only person you need to serve first is yours. If you do not know how to help yourself, you will have trouble serving others. Jesus knew how to serve the Father through the lens of serving others. We, as the body of Christ, is to love and help ourselves and others.

I have written a book called ” Serving the living God In October 2016, which you can find here. This miniature version of writing focuses on three critical matters: serving with a smile, serving with heart and serving with Him. The bible says, ” Serve each other with love.” Love is the engine of passion for giving service to others; Especially in the times of Covid. 

The Christian life, Looks to the interest of others; that is the heart of Christian life. Christ served us on the Cross. The Holy Spirit is helping us. Do a favour to yours, Serve yours + Serve others = serving the Father.

Sometimes serve yourself means forgiving yourself. If God forgave you on the Cross, Can’t you forgive yourself? Look at the glorious future of God’s kingdom in the land of serving. 

“Serve one another humbly in love.” Galatian 5:13 

” Keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord.” Romans 12: 11

“In your hopeless point, you will find hope by serving others.” -Dariush Youkhaneh, Serving the Living God.

Keep running, keep pushing and keep serving. Who are you going to call/text/serve today?  

I recently received a message from an old-old friend; even though I was busy in my life, He sent me a text of encouragement. He served me, and my heart brightened. Serving God is not only meant to go to the poor country, but you can also start where you live, with yours, your neighbour, your city.

 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ( Matthew 5:16 )

Questions to ponder: What serving mean to you? Who are you going to serve this week? 

Written by Dariush Youkhaneh

Friend, Thanks for reading the day seven post; I am full of Joy with your visit; please go ahead and encourage me with a warm comment. Would you mind sharing it with someone you know? Your sharing is an act of serving.

Day 3- My heart is Happy

They all have been waiting – 120 of them, seeking and calling upon the name of the Lord. The coming of the Holy Spirit was so close- They expected an unexpected miracle to happen. But, suddenly, they saw all the elements; The fire and the thick smoke- they all needed this combination from heaven. They have seen Jesus after he resurrected from death several times- they thought we would see Jesus again in person! But God had another plan- The promised one was there- The Holy Spirit.

Day 3- My heart is happy /hh-high.com

Everyone’s heart got to fill with Joy unbelievably. It looked like all of 120 walking in heaven. They encountered an incredible experience as we read from the book of Acts chapter 2 verse seven; others when they saw it” they were all amazed at this “. not only that also” They were surprised, because, as the apostle was speaking, everyone heard in their own language.”

When the Holy Spirit comes into your lives – your heart fills with joy and happiness. You experience heaven on earth. The fire of the Holy Spirit changes you inside out. 

” The people were all amazed and confused. They asked each other, ” What is happening? “

Great things were happening; awesome things were happening; the great and glorious day of the Lord is here. Oh, How our heart is happy. We have the comforter, the peace and the loving Holy Spirit with us always.

” David said this about him: ‘ I saw the Lord before me always; he is at my right side to keep me safe. So my heart is happy, and the words I speak are words of joy. Yes, even my body will live with hope because you will not leave me in the place of death. You will not let the body of your holy one rot in the grave. You taught me how to live. You will come close to me and give me great joy.’ Psalm 16: 8-11 ” 

My dear friend, let your heart be glad, rejoice and celebrate as the holy one lives in you; the great things will happen for you; the awesome things are ahead. You are loved so much. So keep your heads held high always.

Restore to me the Joy of Your salvation

Oh God of all times, I am a sinner. Keep my eyes up and forward. I need your lovingkindness to forgive all my mistakes. I need your hands to lift me into your presence where I can rest. Your bountiful Spirit holds me safe and secure. I need you to restore me the joy of Your salvation, transfer me again from one to another, from old to new—a complete restoration of my soul, heart and mind. Would you allow me to build my life on your Word again? Would you lead me with cloud and fire?

Your merciful hands – all I need. The touch of heaven- all I want. Remember, your first love, remember, I am dust who will return to it. Your glorious face can turn my mortal body into a burst of sunshine. Rebuild my life over, merciful Adonai.

You did not leave me alone here! But I see you are fighting for me over and over again. There is no doubt, and there is no sin, there is no – nothing can separate me from Your love. I look up. 

Believers can walk through this world with Heads Held High, carrying the dignity of the family of God as lords and ladies of the kingdom of heaven.”Let the weak say,” I am strong”(Joel 3:10).” -Reinhard Bonnke

O Jesus, Son of God. 

Please do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Change my world with your presence, O Jesus, put a new song on my lips. Let me see your face- let me be a new person, a new river of blessing that my soul will praise you forever. I am a sinner. Wash me in your blood. Would you immerse me again? Then, I say – Thank you, Father.

Identity

If you live in an apartment in a busy town – and look down from the balcony of your unit, you see people are walking into each other and hurrying to do something.

I am interested to see what will happen in the next 50 years from now. Our life is changing dramatically. Artifactual intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things(IoT) will be ordinary, and Electric cars are already hitting the markets. The machines are taking over human tasks. Those are exciting news for most of us. With all these new technologies, we are still struggling with our IDENTITY. 

If I give a blank page and tell you, please draw’ the identity’ for me; what will you draw? 

The oxford definition of Identity is “The fact of being who or what a person or thing is”

The Bible definition of Identity is “We are made in the image of God “, As I brought to you in my previous post. God breathed His life into us – then the simple meaning of who we are will articulate in who HE IS. So, Our core being is not defined by the things or affected outwardly. We may see it on the surface, but heaven’s connection shapes our inner status. That is why so many of the new younger generation are struggling to find themselves, and they look outside, look and love to be seen, desiring to have always new and shiny things. There is nothing shady to have a big dream. 

We see Identity as not something that recently comes up like a mushroom; we had this issue in Jesus’ time. There was a man called Matthew whose job was collecting tax for the government. He had access to the treasure and money; perhaps He knew the meaning of having a lot of money and sometimes unfairly collecting tax more than expected. In between, He heard Jesus came into his town, and it was the best time for him to look the life from a different angle. Matthew, A short guy, went above a tree with his expensive outfit to find his Identity. He did not care this time. Perhaps there is a Man in the town, can answer all his questions. Although Jesus, ‘the master of freeing people’, was there to bring his Identity back. Jesus’ presence was enough for Matthew to enlighten his heart. Matthew brought back Home. Then, he suddenly realised and asked this question of himself; ‘What I have been doing whole my life? Money!!! I give back four times more for those I unfairly treat them.’

Our Identity is not in the things. No, even, it is not in another person. Nothing wrong with having the stuff of life; the question comes with loving the things. Our Identity is in Galatians 5: 22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Heaven is our Identity.

Lose your life to Jesus, and you’ll find your Identity. Lose your life to Him means to be in connection with Him. Means walk in his way, coming back to Him, even we may make a mistake – but coming back to him with a repentant heart. Where do we find our Identity? At Jesus’ feet!

Comment – what’s your definition of Identity.

One Day

I recently started to read more books about the Holy Spirit. I bought a book by Reinhard Bonnke called ‘ Are We Flammable or Fireproof? ‘. I borrowed a book from our local library written by Rick Warren to company my devotion times. In my ups and downs walk in God, Still, I have zero knowledge of Him. I reached this point, that, I need more of God. I need more Bible verses to be injected into my veins. I need more Jesus-Words to change my perspective and give me a good sound-minding decision. As Bonnke said ” The power of the Holy Spirit does not come as a reward. ” God’s gifts are many, and the gift of the Holy Spirit is one of the special One.

Where would I be, when God calls me? Am I in waving circumstances of this life? Or busying myself with the things of this world? I learned that time with God is an essential walk in the spiritual journey, be emptied of this world – be filled with heaven’s Spirit. Returning to Him, Confession and obedience all are part of the journey again and again! God knows we are human. He knows we are not perfect! That is the reason He sent the Perfecter. He knows we can not walk and continue the journey of life without living water. That is the reason he made available the living water to us. 

The war, the injustice, the fight, the sin, the bad stuff – all It will vanish one day. One day He comes with His Throne. His chosen Ones will be with Him forever. His rich wisdom removes all the doubts. He makes it all white and shiny. One day you can see the Living-Water with your own eyes. Oh, How He loves us. One Day all our pains and sorrows will be replaced with His glorious presence, and space will be filled with the spring white flower.

Who said, we are not belonging to heaven?  Who said, we are not loved by Jesus? Who said, we are not Jesus lovers? 

We are God’s chosen people. In the weakest time, we boast and in the poorest time, we are rich. It does not matter how many doors closed. It does not matter if everything seems falling apart. It does not if we need this and that. It does not matter if this and that is late. It does not – All the matter is CHRIST. Who can changes us/things in the blink of eyes! What it matters is – to worship him, to near Him, Be with Him. Then our Souls will fly – Indeed freed. One Day we will touch this truth. One Day is coming.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Autumn, Glory , Life

We are in the middle of Autumn in Australia. As the deadly covid-19 virus still claiming the lives of people around the world. By now , most people found a way to deal with it. Some are taken the vaccine, some are waiting to take the vaccine, some are escaped to the rural areas, some other staying away from the city centres. And sadly others are mourning still.

It seems , the life styles are getting shape , like a clay under hand of a potter. Still , most of them , carrying the  luggage around from the past to present ,hurting themselves and others. The smells of cold winter days are ahead and still we are not ready for it.

One thing that life can teach you is to be patient, it is ‘when’ and ‘How’ to apply , it’s important. 

We almost listen to everything,  looking to anything , going to everywhere we can , travel as far as we are able , altogether we forgot listen and look to whom created us to be. Being wise means have a secret life with your creator. Sometimes a prayer can change You, your inward life can hear and respond with a Joy outwardly.  Let’s get rid of all luggage. Let’s look to our Jesus. In our workplaces, in our homes , in our interaction with one another. Like a train moving to its destination , let us move to our destination. I know we can do that, something in you is stronger than anything out there. Keep your energy focused to the finish line with endurance. So , practice your Faith , Practice your love , practice your hope. Rick Warren well said ” Living for God’s glory is the greatest achievement we can accomplish with our lives.”

A glory full of grace and truth. Because He is God. He is Worthy of all. You have a purpose in Him , the sweetest thing in life isn’t about how Great we are , nor how rich we are? It is about glorifying him in the way we think , glorifying him in the way we feel and glorifying in the way we act. So , it is not about tomorrow , it about your ‘Now’!  Be in the season , use the talent God given you to be more like His Nature. It is Autumn here , the yellow leafs are dancing for a brighter days ahead. 

Comment how is your season going? What does Glory mean to you? How can you bring glory to God in your life?

Peace and Love

Beautiful garden flowers

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
Song of Songs 2 : 12

One aspect of flower that brings singing . When you see flower such , you like to sing and love. Love that comes from nature above. No one can deny that flowers are not beautiful! They are beautiful in every season and in every occasion.

They change your mood and feeling. They give a special gift of peace and belonging. Go around a garden full of flower and see what grabs you first! Their look and smell. Their love and peace. They somehow sing for you and suddenly you gotta start singing too! They aren’t shy like human , they show their beauty- naked ! Go through above 6 photo , look at them slowly this time.. what’s come to your mind in first?

Beauty ? Peace ? Love ? Coloury ? Spring ? …

They are seating their all day long and giving us their look : l

You’ll be inspired , you’ll be motivated when you see them. You’ll be inspired with their colour . Aren’t they ?

Love

Great Memories Bible Verse

I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
Mark 11:24 NLT

Don’t limit your prayer , Pray in all occasions, anywhere you are . He is not limited. Believe it with all heart that He is Faithful and able to do it. Don’t give up on prayer. The winter will go. A fruit season will come.

Much Love

Into God.

[The life I am livin in.]

Forever secure in Him

I don’t need to hide myself from people. I do not need acceptance of those whome they are unsecure and do not know where they came from. I know , He knows me. I know Before I was born He chosen me be here today and the life I live, I live from Him. He searches me and remove any iniquity in me.

He knows all about me.

When I am resting , He knows.

When I am working , He knows.

When I am upset , He knows.

When I am happy, He knows.

 

He knows everything..

He made everything

He is the God of everything. He made everything. Good and bad all he knows. The life I am living in it is to discover those, I am praising Him for his awesomeness. The life I have; is a gift from Him , The chocolate I can taste is a gift from him because I have the ability to recognise the good and bad.

Listen to this what bible says about me :

Psalms 139 : 13

” You are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body ” .

I am made in wonderful way in God’s image. I am the one whom God died for me that I can be with Him. If He created me with so much respect and love look after me , How come I am not going to praise and love Him more?

His love is not human like love. His love is divine godly -god’s love. With his own eyes He stare at me in the time of trial and struggle and He teared.

Your endless love never fails and I am so much in love with you.

All in All , He is Truth

Your thoughts are far beyond my understanding, much more than I could ever imagine. When I am sleep you are awake and protecting me. Your heart is so much bigger than anything. You are dressed with so much truth. Take away my wickedness and give me an upright heart, Lord. I am up for it with bended knees , Praying to you Father. Look deep into my heart, God.

Holy Spirit , You are who translate my heart known words to the Father. Oh Holy Spirit tell to Father How thirst is my soul. With all my heart I praise you, Lord. Your Kindness and love never fails.

Father , This is the earth you made , look at it:

 earth-1617121_1920

I , We  , Our Family, Our friends , Our City , Our country need you more Father. Jesus it is your turn. You have made us what we are. Please Father , Do not give up on us now!

Psalm 139

Unique God | An Ordinary Man

A unique God- An intimacy letter to a lovely Father! from an ordinary man.

 

I am latterly amazed of this God. He has held the dust of the earth in a basket. I can not understand the mind of the Lord. I cannot measure this even in a second how big He is. He is unbeatable. He is unexampled God. Who can stay against Him, whom created heaven and earth all together with one Word. I Lift my eyes and look to the heavens: who created all these? May I lift my eyes again and look at the big picture. May He allows me to stand next to Him and see the world – How small is this earth? His great power and strength are famous in all the earth. Oh You are nonpareil Lord. With all your majesty and matchless presence , you came in dwell in us. You came and gives strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. I am praising an incomparable God. The God of universe – seen and unseen.

Is it true with all you royalty , you came to us? You allowed me to know you and call you Father. You are unrivalled. I am uniquely and wonderfully made by You because you are unique. How miserable I would be when I won’t trust you. As your only thought is to love me. But my only thought is on earthly things. Give me the eyes of heaven and a heart to follow your light. Allow me to look above my problems . They are nothing in your presence. My hope will be in You , Lord .. will you renew my strength again? I am closing to your glory by stepping to unknown. You are the same God that King David was praising , You are the same God rescued your nation Israel , You are the same Father sent your only Son , You are the same majestic Lord , The Name Above all. So Who am I Lord that you are mindful of Him. Oh My Huge beautiful God , Who Am I you care for him. With all my fall shorting and mistakes you hugging me and saying I am with you till the end of the earth. I’ll put my hope on this incomparable God. I will trust him even everything around me looks a mess up completely. The wisest men on the earth are shocked with the work of your fingers. I like to draw your beauty. You are the best of best artist I know .

IMG_20170701_153342

The paths of the seas are lost without your leading , Lead me to your path. The fish in the sea , the animal on the ground , the moon and the stars and even the stones they know how famous you are. How come some of us not?

You are the treasure in my faintly-heart and a clear light-road to my pathless life.

You ordained my messy things around and changing me to make like yours. Arise and takes away my iniquity with your just and remove any negativity in me. Make me a person with integrity and search my heart with your matchless presence Lord. O Most High , O Righteous God , I am holding your shield to defend my self from the Iron arrows of this world , secure me with your right hand and save me , I am coming to you with the upright in heart. I love you to the depth of my heart . Even my body refuse to worship you , O Lord my soul will praise you. You are unparalleled God.

Awake me and my whole being to know you more. Paint me with your beauty art hand. Here is my life – all yours!

Isaiah 40

Psalms 8

HOLY SPIRIT

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.

Hallelujah.

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

The Spirit of Truth – The Holy Spirit . I am grateful Lord for the Holy Spirit , For Jesus Christ your son. I am praying for the fire of the Holy Spirit come upon to us. Come and cleanse us and pure our heart and make us new . Let us have joy in you more and more. Touch our hearts – Touch our minds and souls . How good you are? I love you because you are Holy and you do not see the things the way we see. You see us different . Before the creation of the world you loved us.

Do you want to leave too?

From that time on, many of His disciples turned back and no longer accompanied Him. So Jesus asked the Twelve, “Do you want to leave too?

Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that You are the Holy One of God.

These words melting my heart in these a few days – I took screen shot and i  made it my lock screen of phone. I read it several times – again and again . It seems God wanted to speak to me through it .

He did it. Obviously.

man-1519665_1920

When i cried out to God – Holy Spirit nailed those words in my heart – Father , to whom would i go? Am i included to those 12 ? Can i confess that. . Your teaching is not hard for me Lord. They are light on my way. This is my confess. To where would  i go Jesus? You are the word of life.  You are the eternal life. I believe and know that  you are the Son of God. You are Holy One of God.

No Father, I do not want to leave you. Even when storms hitting me hard. Even the world turning back to me. I am here , My youth is for you. Because i found nothing in flesh but i found life and love in spirit. I know your words are life. I believe it, even not, please help me to believe it. Let me be accepted by Father. Your chosen one. Part of your Holy nation.

Oh , You know that i am the dusty one! Full of mistakes and failures. But i do not want to leave you even in my mistakes. Even in my failures.

No , what failures pushing you hard to leave the truth ?

Do you want to let Him go?

Jesus saying these words to you. What is your response?

God wants you make included ? You are not excluded. You are the chosen. Just believe it. Peter confessed it . I can confess it  too, You can confess it too. Let this be our confession. Lord , I follow you in my pain and sorrow . Lord You are my God. I am proud that you are my Father. When I am weak than I am strong. Declare it.

Read John 6.

Me & God ( a real conversation you may have with God )

Me :

Oh I am broken heart , I am just a mess that only you know God. I am crying out to you. I heard and know that you are the God of universe . Why your universe; you just made it hurting me? Your image human killing and slaving each other for power for nothing! I kneel before you and humbly asking to guide me and direct me toward the real truth that you only know!

Is this fair? give some more grace , give some less! I know there is no question on your sovereignty. I know you are mighty and you are presence in the time of need. But Jesus look at around! When your heart-followers are waiting for your return. But you are counting are days less to your days. I am asking till that day let your kingdom come. I am asking to fill my thirsty soul of your presence. I am human . I have doubt . I have fear and feelings. I have ambition. You called me child of light. But how come my light hardly brightening on my own way. You called me to be salt of this world . But how can i be when myself have no salt to offer. I humbly want you to be near to me. I kindly want you to lead me to a place that i can stay with you forever. Which there is no tears and sorrows.

You said when you are weak than you are strong ! but let not stuck or die in my weaknesses and let not enemy abuse it for nothing. Than I can come to you and ask for your grateful love and mercy forever. I am weak and faint-heart . I make mistakes terribly. My enemies were waiting for those moments that they could take advantage . My eyes were always above but my heart still was beating- fast!

God :

I know you are going deeply down and down and may nobody ever understands you in anyway. One inch , Only one inch close to completely fall you down. But wait!  can you trust me? I did not want you to be in this situation nor want to test how strong you are. Can you trust me even in your worst time?

( I wrote this for those who are struggling to be honest with themselves and God , It does not matter how hard is. Be honest to yourself and God )

 

God is..

God is Love and You are in God’s love. When you are in Love of God , You are within Him and when you are within Him Your love get defined.

Love comes from God. The first Love was created and designed into us through the breath of God. The love of God already been designed in You. You have been loved already. If you want to know God , does love. That’s the way we know the love of God through His Son. The true love is not the world’s love. Even it is not here and there . The only true love is God’s love for us.

The true love covers many mistakes and sin and shame. There is no condemnation in it. If I truly love you, I do not want you to be hurt in anything. I want to protect you and show you the way. When we love each other God lives in us. If you live in love, God lives in you. There is no fear in love when its fountain is from Him. because His perfect love takes away fear. If you have fear in Love , your love is not made perfect in Him yet!

How do you become perfect in His love?

Be still. Let his spirit  break you inside and make a new perfect design of you. One Step each time close to Him. Know Him, Walk with Him and learn from Him. He teaches you about Himself. You can take one step more when you love your neighbour. Are you close enough to Him? If yes , what is the first picture of Him comes into your heart!

God is Love.

He is a Kind King  , a friend and a father you can lean on Him. His wonders are everywhere. When we call Him King. It does not mean He is on throne doing nothing. NO. He is loving kindness will be put in you. Who do you need to love today ? Who do you need to forget today? Do it , and take one step closer to Him.

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”  – Mother Teresa

If you love people , you have time to know God.

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” – Elbert Hubbard

God knows about you and He still love you.

” Father , I pray the perfect Love of You be rooted to whoever reads this message. Let them grow in You and know you , who you are because you are Love. In your name . Amen ”

I want to know Christ.

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.

baby-boy-84489_1280

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

Jesus(2)

Show me your glory

Show me your mercy

Love .. Joy..Patience .. will be mine

Jesus(2)

I wanna be like you- Open my eyes

I wanna be YOU- open my heart.

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.

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

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.

unending Love

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

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

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

free_space_galaxy_texture_by_lyshastra-d77gh2y

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

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

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

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

You say how Dariush can I return to God?

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

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

You say , I did Dariush

I say , repentance

I say , believe and have faith and acknowledge Him

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

The World IS NOT my Shepherd !

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image-1

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

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

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

The men disappoint you but God will never.

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

The World is not my shepherd But the LORD is.

The True Vine

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image-1

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

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

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

Draw a Line!

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

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

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

You are now the heaven citizen.

You are now child of Light.

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

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

God does not show favouritism.

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

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

IMG_1476

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

Faith takes you to unbelievable things.

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

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

Grace be with you all.
