Should this be my last post of 2019?

What i need to tell you; all my dear beloved followers and visitors. Thank you for a year of being all the way here by supporting , commenting and encouraging me to keep writing, even you may not noticed , your LIKE and support keep me inspired throughout the year 2019. Thank you it was a truly a year of God’s hands in our life. But God has not finished yet so do we. We keep inspire people. We keep loving them and no expect of return , we keep forgiving them and show them they belong to loving heavenly Father. 

What a year! Do you agree with me? I am sure you have like me many testimonies right into your packet. Do you want to keep having those old habits way in your heart or do you want to start this new year and decade with a fresh perspective about yours and others!

I have decided to have a complete surrender to Him – Put away all my bad habits and grab his goodness for 2020. I know saying it , is so easy! But let’s give it a try.

Let see first what God has done for this blog till now, look at the below stats :

1

This is your blog , your visiting , your loving , your caring , your viewing posts are blessed me and others so much , we have only  one goal , one mission to lift each other up.  That was/is the mission of this blog  to inspire and encourage individuals. Thank God for your presence , Thank God for his blessings. I am looking for more miracles in 2020. I am thanking Father in heaven for your life. Although it has been a good year but our nations needs touch of God in all area from economy to environment. We have sever drought right here in Australia where i am typing these words of mine to you. Our farmers are struggling, our firefighters are fighting , our animals are dying and our environment is literally crying… but these disasters must close us to God not  far. We need him in 2020 to actively be involved in our life. I am sure you can name it in your city many many things need God to be involved.  Look forward for more friends to join in to club.

2020 is here.

As you can see, Time is flying . Today is the last day of 2019 – can you believe it?

Okay , Let’s talk about my last encouragement post of 2019. Are you ready?

Can you take a paper and pen. I took mine.

Now take a moment and list down those desires and wishes and healing and working God has done in life of you and others. in 2019. And what is your desires and wishes and expectancy for 2020…

I got mine – look at the below , you can use this as a template and answer those questions ;

20191231_152900

Look at above photo carefully again ! Did you answer them?

Okay , Great. Love your heart.

in 2019 : 

What God has done for me ? can you list them ?

What God has not done for me ? Can you list them? ( what was the wisdom of God for it?)

What i need to be thankful for ? Can you specify them ?

Which person encouraged me most ? Can you name it ?

What miracles God has done for me? Can i list two?  and thank God for them?

In the process of healing , did i forgive someone one? if not can i do it in 2020?

Where was God in 2019 in my life? in the pain? in the joy ?

in 2020 :

One of the question i brought here for 2020 : Am I expecting Jesus pass my town? Why do i need to expect Jesus pass my town. This is very important question ,  me and you need ask each other. In Luke 5 verse 12 we read it Jesus was passing a town. for sure If Lord of Lords , King of Kings – the master of all whom created heaven and earth wants to pass your town – what would be your reaction. In my most prayers in 2019 i always include this” Jesus please pass our town- see sick people in hospital , they need you” . That brings God’s attention to your circle that you are expecting see Jesus in your town.

True that , People will be healed. We read that in Luke 5: 12b : “When the sick man saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” I pray it , God make us ready , that when you comes in our town i can worship you and recognise you, saying that you can heal me and cleanse me. That requires a level of courage and humbleness. Make me humble enough to ask you. The lapresy man above , acknowledged that he needs Jesus to clean him ,he was aware of his level of sickness. The poor man was years away from society and he needed a touch of Jesus – a one visit of jesus in town could’ve been enough to reach him. I pray that Jesus visit our town in 2020 and we have a kind of courage and boldness in us that we can ask him ” we need you Jesus ” . Am i expecting him to pass my town ? There are many sicks people – spiritually and physically. Opposite of our imaginations Jesus loves to reach and heal as we read in Luke 5 verse 13 ” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.”  Many years of sickness immediately left the man. He was freed.  I need this kind of healing in my life , many years of me and your sickness will immediately leave us by Jesus’s hand reaching out to us. It is a good year – 2020 it is a year of Jesus passing our town and dwelling in our hearts forever. But this passing will bring our hearts to Him forever. I am expectant.

So my dear friend, how i love you! without seeing you  and i know God loves so much. you can go ahead through the list and elaborate it in your life. for another example have a short or long term goal. If you are continue going with the plan of 2019 then what would be the outcome for this year. create one.

Regardless of situation and feelings i need to TRUST God. This is one the very important element in 2020 i need to carry it with me wherever i go, this increases my Faith in him that i need God to be there for me. He prepares the way that i can see better. expecting the best out of worst in 2020. This new decade God will pour our his presence more if i only trust him and be ready , because i know his mercy are fresh and ready each morning.

There are many singles out there i pray for them , God , oh my Father , prepare the way of life for them. Let them first , we acknowledge that you are our love of our life .show them love of their life in a powerful way. Love them God. Let 2020 be a year of full of your wonders , passing our town , heal our wounds and untight their old problem, free them , do miracles, increase faith and love and hope in them. Amen

Happy New Year 2 0 2 0  to You and Your Family !

If I only be in Your Presence

You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

There is no such  a beautiful place rather than be in the presence of God. There is no place you can find rather than be in his loving arm. As I am surrendering all to You God ! I am praying to see the way of Life , Open the way ! I have none in me , that can known this path but in you I know where I am standing , I know where I am going. Passing the wave of the emotions and feelings where I can see your reality. The Person of God. How beautiful is this ? You are not Hidden forever in my heart! You are known for all humanity and one day all we see with our eyes! rather physical or spiritual. You’ll be there for me. I’ll be lost without You. Breathe in me your Life again! From Cross to Glory.

I do not want temporarily happiness of this world offers me. I want you fill me with your Joy where your presence can change me, and shape me like you.

Psalms of David 16 : 11

O Lord, Our Lord!

O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
in the heavens.

Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.


When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e]
and crowned them[f] with glory and honor.

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their[g] feet:

all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,

the birds in the sky,
and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

/Psalm 8/

Father,

I say O Lord, Our Lord how good have you been to me. How excellent is your Name. Your works are famous in my heart. My paths are in your eyes.

Father,

I say O Lord, Our Lord how great is your Name. Near within my heart, Praise and Glory is Yours.

Father,

I say O Lord, Our Lord how awesome is your Name. Beautiful, Soft and Powerful. Your presence takes me away.

With Love

Be Best | Be Blest

Life is harsh sometimes. I feel everyday I am stepping to live eternity with Christ. I am living in it – a life of vision and dreams. When I try to walk in the tunnel of dreams – it is getting tougher. Because I know those finding the door of visions are a few- everybody walking a wide open and easy door. Everybody swimming with the flow. Suddenly when you fight – when you tell the truth – when you go right way ( in the eyes of the world wrong way) everybody looking at you – ha what he is doing? …

This World is not the way I will go . The way I will go is his way. He fills my potential love in me- He directs me and couches me the way I should go. If the world put me in dead end I try to do my best and trust in the Lord who strengthen me. Before I was on my way. Now I am living in Him. I am flowing my self to a way I have never been before. I am taking the risk of being who he wants me to be does not matter what others will think about me – it does not matter what the world will think about me. I will sing with all my being – the sing of victory and praise.

If life cry me out – I bow down to my God. If life laugh me out – ah … I sit in the peace of my Jesus – at His feet I receive grace and love .

I do not know how does it look like for you today. But when your feelings storming your life- stay calm and listen to your heart and follow your dreams even you can not see any progress at the moment. Be YOU. Being others is like walking one the corroded bridge- anytime you may fall. But when you walk by the decision that God has put in your heart is the best ever life you would have possibly have. It is like you are walking on the Iron bridge . It is like you built your house on the rock. It is like a soldier ready for a war. It is like a farmer harvesting the best crop on the land- It is sweeter than any honey on the planet.

I see my self in three angles :

1- Like soldier

2- like a sports man

3- Like a farmer

I am like a soldier – need to be ready for a fight. Taking my weapon of grace in Christ. A good soldier of Him. Ready to endure the sufferings on the way.

“Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them.”[ 2 Timothy 2 : 4]

If only realise that..

I love to win the prize. In fact who does not! But winning the win demanding to follow the rules…

“And athletes cannot win the prize unless they follow the rules.” [ 2 Timothy 2 : 5]

My grandpa was a farmer – I am proud of that . I learnt many things as a farmer do on the land. And I always remember the best part of it- when we are enjoying the cultivate of it ..

“And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor.” [ 2 Timothy 2 : 5]

Eden Restored.

We are born in a sinful world. We born in a broken world. Our flesh desires to do the things in its own way. Our mind not having company with our spirit. Our flesh and spirit are in a fight. Some of us touching more , some of us not!

surfer-2212948_1920

We are away from the origin-relationship with God . We have been walking with God. We tasted the great and awesome presence of God. We walked in perfect company with God in Eden.

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”

Indeed . It was very good. He saw that – He made that .. It was perfect. The garden . The heaven. The earth was beautifully drawn by Him.

So , this earth is not bad – the heaven is not bad . God made them- our body , the humans – my friends , my enemies , my boss , my teacher .. they all made by God . We should not hate them. It means God made life. We should not hate life. If it is hard and tough. Because we are not in Eden anymore! We are not in perfect relationship with God that is why we feel pain and sorrow. But that is okay. It does not mean we are dying . It does mean we need to come back to Him.

I love this God. whom we can call Father . I love this Father who he brought us back to Eden in Christ. Our Eden is backed in Him. All are invited and it is depends on me to enter or not. It is depends on me how do I live to glorify Him in anyway. I know all the world will go against me but my heavenly Father is on my side. He is loves me and accepted me to be in his presence . How joy is in this?

I am waiting for the heavenly son return with his glorious  that time I will touch and see the real Eden. Till that I need a little endure , a little patience , a little pain , a little joy.

“Look, I am coming soon!”

When He comes – All we will see is the truth . All we will see is the perfect God.

 

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb ” [ Revelation 22]

What is today upsetting you and me? What is making us down ? God perfect plan is to show us the path of the Eden . But till to reach there – you and me are not alone – He gave us the Holy Spirit , The spirit of the truth is within us. God has his plan in your life. Late or again late but it is never late for God’s perfect time. If He is God – he knows how to deal with our problems – all we need to do is give it to Him- that’s ALL.

Enjoy your life freely in Christ every moment. Wave in his grace and love.

I want to walk with You

I am in love with you- I want to walk with you everyday- every moment and second. I am keen to see you- Because you are the only one i can trust in! Yes – You stay forever with me. Even i am broken and lose everything. Even in my happiest times – you are there and cheering me up. From your presence where can go? You are everywhere! You were watching me when i was child , you were watching me when i was a teenage – you were watching me when i was stepping to unknown.

I want to walk with you like Adam did. I want to enter to the real garden of relationship with you and shout HOSANA , HOSANA! I do not want to take the fruit of sin – I was foolish enough. Grace I need now! Your beautiful love and mercy. Your hand empowers me to be still. I want you to grab my hand like you did to Peter when i am falling and drawing in the sea of my world- You are there again – Telling me  ” walk with me dear “.

I acknowledge you in all my trembling way. I serve you with dignity and loyalty. I know the world i am living in now , it is not loyal to me- But you are always loyal .

adventure-842584_1920

When i walk with you:

1- My head held high – My shames all gone

2- My identity found

3- My security accepted

4- I am loved and beautiful

5- I am in peace

6- I am in heaven on the earth

7- I am going to be like You

I am not hiding from you anymore. Because like a fish i am into your sea of presence. In the ocean of greatness. The word i can not find to define . Hand to hand going to walk with you around. Open my eyes to see your beauty more. My guitar can not play a song more beauty than your song. I am here now! to be with you- kiss all the way your heavenly peace and love! I am burning into your holy place – subjecting to reign with you. Pointing to the holy city of the Jerusalem. Shaking off all my dusty human and holding the word of God in my heart and take the light in darkest places – declaring HOLY HOLY it is HIS Name .

Where – When _ What , All be created in one word ” WALK” . To walk with you in all steps of my flesh life- to reach to you.

 

” Those who walk with God , always reach their destination ” – Henry Ford

Walking with God is a learning process – it is an obedience. Before walking i need to know who i am walking with – and how much he has power – who is walking with me. If i only realise the king of kings – the creator of everything walking with me. Than probably my prospective will change. Even , when i am walking through fire . I know who is with me.

Let start now to learn how to walk with God.

What I need to know for New Year.

In my spiritual journey what i need to know in the year come ahead. What are my responsibility as a Christ-life center lifestyle. My previous year was very weary , although i hadn’t started very well but i am going to finish it strong. But it seems for the Spirit better to know what is my plan than according that God would establish it for me.

In one thing all humanity , as i know ; are SAME . That is taking breath everyday. Actually , no one will tell you (Hopefully) you are not allowed to breath here! So your first bizarre responsibility is to know ‘take a breath’ in all situation. When you know that you are ready to take other responsibility. Why i am saying this , because most of us we forgot to take a breath in our normal life. Take a breath means to know who you are in God’s eyes.

winter-1176421_1920

You need to know you are blessed. 

God’s blessing protect us , It is different . It smells like heaven’s flower. When you are blessed ; you are favored and you feel like you are chosen ( which you are really ). I want draw your attention to this very powerful verse in the Bible :

 “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.” ( Psalms 1 : 1- 3)
A tree planted by streams of water is fruitful and brings good ones. Your trust is in Him and you bring in right time , right fruit . In whatever you do ; you prosper is clearly obvious for everyone. You need to know you are that person which delight in the law of the Lord.  Listen to this there is more , when you are blessed all your needs are met By God. All your needs when you are walking in His will.
You need to know you are chosen.
You are chosen one too. Even you do not feel it now ! still you are. You need to know it. Why? because God say so , read this what HE told about YOU:
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” ( 1 Peter 2 : 9 )
You belong to a big picture ! Do not feel you are alone. When you are chosen it means you are belong to someone who is authority is over all everybody and anything. You are God special possession. Not for that only being side of God also declaring the praises of Him. Because you are called into His wonderful light.
R.C. Sproul’s book Chosen by God said “If there is one single molecule in this universe running around loose, totally free of God’s sovereignty, then we have no guarantee that a single promise of God will ever be fulfilled.”
The promise of God is fulfilled because you are chosen as His holy nation. Yes , it is true the chosen people go into hardship ;  You are exceptional because God’s favor is upon you and you have been bought for a price.
You need to know you are Loved.
Does not matter how badly you have been hit by enemy , you have to know you are loved. Because He first loved you. You need to know you are loved from now on. May you had doubt about this before , But there is no place such doubts who is loved.
God already showed his great love toward us by His son , you need to believe it :
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

It is great. It is sufficient. It is awesome plan of God for us. It is eternity.
“You have to stop loving and pursuing Christ in order to sin. When you are pursuing love, running toward Christ, you do not have opportunity to wonder, *Am I doing this right?* or *Did I serve enough this week?* When you are running toward Christ, you are freed up to serve, love, and give thanks without guilt, worry or fear. As long as you are running, you’re safe.”  ― Francis Chan, Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God
Do not go far or run away , know that in Father’s house you are always loved.

Guided By His Grace.

It is a good time talk about Christmas. As we are going fast to reach to Christmas Day. Some countries are in war and horror. Some are thirsty and hungry . Some are in desperate physical need of this world and in another stage some people are in spiritual need.

In another view , some are joyfully pleasing in this Christmas and excusing and  are saying we can not do anything.

Specially it seems it is a great Christmas for our family. we have little Joy adding to our family. Now I am uncle again. what a joy! My brother’s son was born right a week before Christmas day. A handsome boy was born.

In the face of brutal world we all somehow needy in a way. That is where we can place Jesus in our life. Jesus Came to declare that ‘ all I want is You ‘. Because my love toward you is real. Jesus is saying I love you , I am for you. Each year we celebrate born of Jesus. But what is meaning of that? Some are not interested as long as is fun. Some loves party and good holiday. Some are neutral. Christmas needs a responds and than fun. Christmas is a reason to know that there is a saviour. it is a chance for you to come to Him.

ballerina-1873265_1920

Maybe this Christmas is a chance to love someone . May this Christmas is a time to reconcile . May this Christmas is a time to join together as family. Jesus Came to join , mend and heal you. “And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.” Jesus Christ.

Read the birth of Jesus : Luke 2:1-20

If we allow Jesus in our small world He is able to fresh our souls and make a new way for us. His Grace covers all your shame and condemnation , It is never let for you to have a new start. Yes , I do not know what you are going through right now but I know our God is bigger than any weaknesses and mistakes and faintly heart. You will need one touch of Him , your life will be changed forever. Why not this Christmas? Why not take one step close to Him?

Tell Him, Be close to Him. Say ‘ God I do not know you  still know me but I am broken completely , If you exist come and help me ‘ If you tell this from the bottom of your heart God will intervene . You do not need to be perfect to have a prayer to Him. You need to come Home . You just been away from Father’s house. It is not a big deal for Him. His love is for you always. He will wash you and clean you by the power of blood of Jesus whom already paid the price for you.

Let His love and grace blown you away.

Let His blood wash you.

Let His hand help you out.

Let His power support you

Let His arms works for you

Let His eye be on you

Let Him have Control.

Dance with Jesus.

Let Him at this Christmas guide you by HIS GRACE.

More Grace

” It is worth it to serve the Lord, young people. It is worth it, it is worth it, it is worth it a million times. “-Reinhard Bonnke

God wants to deliver you today , He is not against your idea or opinion , ideology or anything you call it. Jesus continually praying for you in the presence of Father. He knows you are human and you make mistakes. But it is your choice to come back to him. In both scenario Jesus still praying for your journey. He is praying for your protection and safety  ” Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name – Jesus said “.

He lifts up your name higher. It means He takes your shame and condemnation and will give you a new name. You are not belong to the world. Your spiritual needs not the kingdom of this world but need to be performed in it. You have given a better future, An eternal life with Him. Your true happiness is not depends to this world but having relationship with your heavenly Father.

grey-heron-139979_1280

He will keep you safe from evil one. Jesus invites you to be One with  Father as He is. You are partner with the king of kings. You have the privilege of being ‘ the Kings’ Children ‘. Jesus severed us , we are servants too.

He prayed for us , We too , needed to pray for others.

You are loved no matter what. Do not listen to voice of enemy. Your past (mistakes) doesn’t decide your future . Your future made in His mind brilliantly before your past mistakes.

Throw it in bin what is belongs to bin and grab the good things and stick it into your heart.

Your diseases are not from God or you have been tested by Him. It does not mean you are separated from God. No , it means you are more loved by Him and you will see more grace. Because He is God of all Grace. Your problems are not from God. But they may close you more to Him. Your temptations are not from God , But they may come from your flesh desire, How you overcome them? Your disasters are not from God , But they may come from the sinful world and they are like alarm to you that God is coming soon. Your hardship are not from God but may is the time God want you to show new things.

Your peace are not laid down in the paper of books or people’s opinion but Jesus is the answer. When everything is messed up than Grace comes more.

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
