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 6 / 14 – God is our Protection

As a human, we need essential life items like water, food, shelter, and cloth. Sometimes the human’ needs go to the top of a roof. With a quick search, we see 1.6 billion homeless people scattered across the globe. They are wandering around with a permanent place called home, all because of their various circumstances. In this world of shaky, we need assurance, security, and protection. 

Apart from our physical protection, we need spiritual protection too. God can provide both – As king David says :

” God is our protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help up in the times of trouble.” ( Psalms 46:1 )

Are these ” times of trouble” means only spiritual needs? Or does it mean both physical and spiritual? For answering this question, of course, you need to see in what situation and circumstances King David was. We can apply this verse to our daily prayer and ask God to assist us with physical and spiritual needs. 

If your trouble is in finance, ask God as He is always ready; If your concern is in health, ask Him to heal you as He is always there to help. If your problem is in a spiritual matter, ask Him to strengthen your faith. 

So, our today’s troubles are an opportunity of being better in all aspects of our life. A strong person in the Lord face the trouble; walk up through it bravely. Our source of strength is not from the earthly source; instead, we look up for help.

Contemplate God’s strength on your life. 

” God will command His angels to protect you wherever you go.” ( Psalms 91: 11)

In other words; In times of trouble, God will send his angels to protect you wherever you go. Your protection is guaranteed, and an angel is serving day and night to protect you from the enemy’s schema. You are protected. 

Questions to ponder: In which area of your ” times of trouble” you need His protection? Do you believe God is your protection and source of strength?

Great Memorise Bible Verse

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV

NIV version translated as FIXING our eyes on Jesus..

We must never stop looking to Jesus. If we accept Him as our saviour and Lord. We need to believe He is the beginning and the end.

Fix your eyes on Jesus is the best experience you can have in the midst of difficulties of this life.

Read the scripture above again with a slow step and let think what fixing your eyes on Jesus means?

Fixing our eyes on Jesus means :

Peace comes. Miracles happens. And worries gone.

Focus on Jesus

A Prayer for the week ahead..and after

God , I am young and needy of you. If I fall please lift me up. And let me walk in your presence. Let your love be known to me and wipe all my darkness within me. Let it be a week of victory.

God , I am unwise and inexperience. If I make a decision please shape it and make it yours. Let your knowledge be a life-lesson to my heart. Let it be a week of greatness.

A prayer for the week ahead.. ! And after

God, I am empty without you. Fill me with your love. Let your kindness soften me. Let it be a week of life changing moments.

God , I am blind and short-sighted human. Heal my blindness and let me see the distance. Let your miracles come and be a week of miraclous.

God, I am only a human from dust. Let your divinity come that I will assure I am made like your image. Let your holiness come and be a week of holy.

God , I am only in one place at one time. But you are a space traveller. You are everywhere. Let me know that you know everything and you are everywhere, Let be week of Y-O-U.

God , I need you. Not only for this week ahead but for the week after, after after… and everyday of my life. Let it be yours and only yours.

Much Love

Plan , Prayer , Promise

In the race of love and fight , we all have one life to live on earth until to eternal life in Christ. People ask what would be like the heavens? our forever home. I almost forgot about God’s promises in my life. I may think the current circumstance would be the end of everything! no. It is not. God’s victory is bigger than my situation , bigger than any result now and than. God changes thing according to his good will not according my good desire.

The real road of victory has some big/small obstacles. King David had faced those. I don’t think the biggest fear of King David were facing the giants but facing about “Does my life honor God? ” , ” Did i do enough to please him?”. Those questions came when he was in highest position , right in his palace. We read this in 2 Samuel 7 . The process of honoring God comes with an action. But not the way we think , but the way He thinks. Comes with an admiring prayer to the God of universe.

We need to learn ( at least I need to learn more) , God does not need us to do something for Him , although He will be pleased with our plans . He is pleased to shape our plans right in his majestic hands. That is exactly we studies in 2 Samuel 7. He makes it right and noble. And I know mistakes are part of my plans and I know my plans are not successful without His love; helping me in all ways.

So , I offer Him my plans as prayer as His promises pass through and filter it with his holy hand. He makes it right. He changes it like a new morning ; fresh and pure.

How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.” 2 Samuel 7 : 22.

I have to submit that , I have been short of knowing him more. All these three sisters Plan,Prayer, Promise has something to do with my willing of surrender. Dr Charles Stanley said it well on his devotion ” When we have difficulty hearing the Lord, the best remedy is to surrender our personal desires and fix our attention on what God wants. Only then will we again be able to discern our Shepherd’s voice calling us back to Himself.” David knew exactly about shepherd’s voice, He was , himself a shepherd once. God ‘s promises echoes through His voice. It seems our personal desires are blocking of God’s voice coming in. What we need to surrender, what steps we need to do. So I have decided to follow according below :

Plan = Submit my desires to God

Prayer = With an humble heart ask Him to help and acknowledge He is sovereign Lord and can do anything and He has the best interest to assist me

Promise = Hearing God’s voice pass through, they are right and in time. When God said , it will be done surely even I can not see it.

My friend, Give it a go. Keep these three sisters close to each other. Than we will say like Kind David :” How Great You are Sovereign Lord!”

Much Love

Great Memories Bible Verse

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV

Me and you can be likeness of God , to be Him on earth, the same Image from Glory to Glory.

Read the verse above again, this time read it slowly , let your heart and mind pick them up. Read the second time. Do the same.

Now , read it reverse , very slowly. Get the meaning of the word – let it flow into your spirit. Being image of God wipes all burden of this world. Take off the mask of the world from your heart. God is good , he can help you on this.

Much Blessings

Have a nice day and night

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.

****

Four things every Christ Follower need to have

👏Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ?

Being united with Christ is important command that has been given to us. Christianity formed with a gathering of Jesus and his disciples. Jesus came to give us life. He came and wore humanity to teach us a lesson. Being together and pray for each other that sense of unity can heal us and it can makes us a better person. I love this. When there is a unity . There is a victory. When there is an encouragement of unity and love. There is peace and overcomer. You are not alone in your journey. Because there are people to encourage you and remind you that God is good . Keep the unity smooth.

❤️Any comfort from his love?

We need it. We thirst for it. And we know there is nothing like God’s love that can melt our harden soul. When we dwell in comfort love of our creator , we live in awe. We walk in heaven. There is no place we rather should be. God is love and we learnt that nothing can separate us from his love. When we go deep in his love. we realise we need it everyday of our life. in desiringgod.org Greg Morse has written in His article well :

The Saviour who loves you says so from above you,
From high on a hill and hung up on a tree.
The Saviour who loves you cries so from above you,
His blood paints a picture of love you can see.

🙏Any fellowship together in the Spirit?

Lootfy Levonian explains well in his book called THE HOLY SPIRIT IN FELLOWSHIP. ” This fellowship brought to existence on the day of Pentecost, when the believers received the gift of the Spirit.”

This step is very similar to unity with Christ. But mostly means we need to have a close relationship with the Holy Spirit. Our attitude will be change when something new created in us. We are not the person used to be. We see the life around, very differently. We, now, know how we would smell a flower. The whole atomespher will change, because heaven is in you now. You do the things by not your power but in His ability you lean in.

So, it’s not adequate if we go to church, but there is a need of repentance.

If there is a need of closeness to the Holy Spirit. Resolve this in your private prayer. Your stillness can turn the face of God toward you.

🤗Are your hearts tender and compassionate?

God looks at the hearts. His mission is to change the hearts. He is the creator of our heart and soul and body. His tender love and compassion is inherited in us. We have the DNA of his goodness grace in us. If he is good so do we. Jesus even said, you do greater thing when you believe in me. If we only can break the bridge of doubt between us and God, then we can truly know who He is.

Soften your heart. Love one another. Help somone. Rescue a human from falling. Be with a lonely. Have compassion. Pray continously, if you can help somone financially. All you have is his. And he is yours.
Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, working together with one mind and purpose.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit from Philipianns 2 : 1

Be Active , Be Brave , Be Life

Be Brave. Today that can impact in people’s life around you. Life is full , in today’s busy life what we can do for others? Isn’t enough for me? Can I put away all my selfish thing in a selfy-world.  What I need today , Is not to submit myself to be better when I interact with others?! What I need today is more of God, More the Spirit of true God and change me and others forever. Oh , My dreams – still looking and seeking . The job I am desiring to have , The house I want to buy , The family I want to gather, The travel I want to go. What is important today? Why am I mixing the priorities ? The priority is being in peace with God – then I truly can find my self in enormous rushy-world. There is nothing can satisfy me – except the real love of my creator.

Is there an opportunity  did I  miss? It does not matter.  It won t matter my dear friend. Take a pen and paper. And write from the start-

” I am living in a blessed life, this is my life “

beach-daytime-landscape-1390514

Be positive , be active , be brave – you are living in a blessed life already! You are in right place , just move forward and trust God and see how He is going to establish your steps. You will be amazed of his presence , You will be greatly blessed the year in and the year out. Just look at the trees outside. Look at the garden around you- See , How God is working in your life.

” When God is in Control , enemy is panicking – it looks we are weary but truly we are victorious ” 

Love is active , enormously kind anything comes against. What is the very first thing – Be right to your self ! Accept your place in God- As your name is written on His heart. In your workplace – in your home- in your car – in your school. Let God moves in and see how your prospective changes! Regret will pass away – The doubt I have right now – it wont itch my destiny with God. It wont my friend ! Let them take my everything , But what they  can not take is my future in God. They can not truly. Because My God is Greater. If I live in foolish life in the eyes of this world – because I am getting to live in eternal life. It might half of my own people won’t get it- Because me and you are chosen for a destiny. I am going to put right my heart in the right place . I am going to build my house on the rock even the enemy laugh at me. Even I miss the Opportunity. Even I don’t, I wont, have what I wanted to have! It is never late.

I sit down on my old likeable chair and write that big :

” My God is Great “

giphy

It is okay – even the clock is against me. It is okay if ‘ Mr wrong ‘ / ” Ms worng” came  and mess my life on this earth. Because I know I am loved , Because I know I am the child of the most high. The God of whole universe sent his only begotten Son to save me of this selfish life- Why am I trusting my self? I will never do that. I am looking of God’s son – I am above all troubles like eagle look down – How small are they!

” When my God is Big- The problems are so weak “

Who needs my smile today – to be encouraged! I am going to be brave enough to inspire someone – even I might be in pain of the journey.
