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.

Read Psalms 51

Let it Snow!

If you really love Christmas , Let it snow! Let your unmask face reveal and shine your real love inside out. I am in dream of this time of the year , A wonderful time of let it go. Let the worry face of inside go and be in L O V E of yours and others. Christmas brings Joy and Peace – Why? because the star in the east caught my eyes for a real love and peace.

A king from Bethlehem brought such a forever ” Let it snow ” and ” Let love be in the hearts forever.” Prophet Micah Centuries ago spoke about this Love. Micah didn’t know about this would be on our Calendar and make it wonderful season for us. But He knew that the new king of love will shine and brings hope to humanity.

Please , Let it snow my heart! let all my bitterness and un-forgiveness go. Where there is a little dark turn it to a light. Oh my little Christmas ! Jesus came for you. Make a fresh start and decide to take a step into unknown. Oh new me on this time – let the world know you are who you are. If a million people turned away from you- it is okay , you shine like a diamond. And know that the King of Kings came for you. Let the snow comes and wipes all our Sins like the blood of Jesus on the Cross.

Hey 2020 , you brought death to us , But our Lord Jesus Brought Life to us.

Hey 2020 , you “think” you won the battle , But we won the battle because Christmas is here, Our Jesus is here.

Hey 2020, you stay where you are , but we go and welcome our new year , a new promise

Hey 2020 , These are you last days – repent and go away

Hey 2020, Let it Snow!

If the Christmas is in the air, it means it is welcome to be in our hearts.

Jesus said : ” I am the way , I am the life and I am the truth ” . Christmas is all in Him , Actually , In Jesus we have everything. Everything we need is in Him , The real meaning of Christmas!

Let your Christmas be filled with Joy and Peace , full of Jesus.

Peace and Joy Alwasy

Thursday Devotion , 9 April 2020 / Rejoice

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Philippians 4:4 ESV

This is a full delight to unbroken gladness in the Lord. This kind of delight have Joy in the sorrow too. We are called to rejoice in sadness and happiness. Yes , we cry with those are crying , we smile and laughter with those are happy. We have Joy in the Lord regardless of the circumstances . A full eternal joy within. St.Paul is telling to Philippians, ” always have our heavenly Father divine presence of Joy within you , I am telling you have this joy. And be very glad for his glory.”

2 year ago in my post “keep smiling joy is our portion ” I encouraged all to have Joy season in and out.

When the pain hit us hard and wants to steal our heart, have Joy , in another word St.Paul is saying to us. Mostly Joy comes with peace as Romans 15 : 13 talks about it. We have this great reason to feel joy , and to be very delighted. And no one here on earth can take this away from us. This bundle of Joy is for us as the follower of Christ. We have Joy of the Lord , we have Him , we have whom has created the all things. We have his peace with full assurance of His Glory.

Let’s meditate on this . B e S t i l l and talk to God. Let Him know How much his presence gives you Joy and Peace. Then reJoy’c in it.

Joy of the Lord yours

You are like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither– whatever you do prospers. ( Psalms 1 : 3 )

I have joy in my heart , that God going to prosper his chosen one. You are the child of God when you listen to Him. You are his precious one when you obey his voices. You are the one because Jesus died for you. We are the people of heaven whom God is able to prosper us. I believe in my heart. Just look at him, don’t look around, what this or that does. Look at him. You are healed by his Blood. You are whole by his body. Pain is a surface , but Joy is your portion. David said that , you are tree planted by the streams of the living water. Word of God day and night be on your heart and lips.

star-1828208_1920

The fruit of Joy , mine

When sun rise , His word guides me throughout the day

When sun run away , his arms hugs me warmly and lovely

I sleep in his loving kindness as His joy overflows my cup

Sweet dreams of Jesus, touches my soul

Telling me I am His forever more..

 

By Trusting to Jesus everything changes !

Keep Smiling / Joy is our portion

A very warm welcome to you if you are new here. I am so honoured to have you with me. You are not guest anymore , your home is here. You are my friend , Please comment anytime as I love to hear from you or visit this blog( home )  again. I love the fact we are international friends – different time and place , different background and skin , in different seasons that makes me even more happy. Because you have a story to tell! Please go ahead and have a look around my blog , search any topic is in your heart in my search bar section , there is a lot to discover , go to my book section , visit my quotes panel. Be inspired..

Today, It is in my heart to talk about Joy and Smile. What makes you smile ? What is in your heart that makes your heart have joy even you may be in the storm? Share with me , comment here , ask your friends and loved ones , ask them how they view you.

God loves your smile , But the reality is , these days it is hard to have a smile on face. The broken world putting so much pressure on us and it gives us every reason not to do so. I Confess that I am not that type of person which in every corner of city when I walk do the big smile. I need to have reason to have smile 🙂 . That , which this sinful nature of humanity need to have. A REASON!. But it does not mean I have not have Holy Spirit Joy in me.

When you have an inner joy within you – the outer smile will come anyway.

Specially the enemy of our faith target those they are young. They have less experience of life. Our young people are more depress these days why? Because enemy likes it.  But God says ” I destroy the plan of enemy and I will give you joy “. Jesus says ” Stand up and Arise ” . I learnt that I do not need REASON to have smile . I can smile without any worldly reasons. Jesus my reason to smile. He is my Joy and everlasting life. There is a story in Bible that from last night seat in my heart. Jesus and his disciples were passing a city , People were going to carry a dead young man which he was the only hope of his widow mum. They were carrying a dead hope of his young son. All her smile were fade away and replaced to a big grieve in her heart.  The Pain in her heart was unstoppable. But Jesus was on the way. The life of all humanity.  The real hope.

action-art-backlit-615334

Jesus came in to the crowed – and said to his broken mum -” Don’t cry”.  Joy is here. He went on and touch and said ” Arise young man “.  God wants us arise and smile in this broken world. He wants to have his joy carrying within us everywhere we go. He is near with us as we carrying his joy and smile every road we are taken. I am content with this. I have more joy in Him. I have more focus in my life – because my gaze is on him and I am not distracted of beauty of this world. It is yours. God is yours. His peace is yours. His love is yours. I don’t lie if I say he knows you by name , I don’t want to fill your heart with a bunch of good words. I am going to be filled with his promises, He is real. Right there with you. Don’t lose your heart and smile , keep going , keep moving friend there is an open door for you right every door is shut. There is a smile for you right the bitterness  of the world is there.

Joy is a portion for those who love God and following Him. And the joy of the Lord is yours. keep smiling.

Spring days

Birds are singing, the flowers are smiling and the sky is raining. It is Spring here. And I have such a joy for a new season. Beautiful days ahead. The good news is here, I have hope my new book will be out by mid December, and I believe massively going to bless everyone. A bunch of short true stories to inspire everyone.

God still working in your life. He was working before the creation of the world. We are thinking can do everytjing by our own ability! Does it really work? May for a short time. I’m true God there is a true blessing. There is nothing in your past, present and future can hold you back of this true blessing.

Psalmist says ” I will live in perfect freedom”. In whatever season we might be in.

Have a blessed Wednesday.

Dariush Youkhaneh

You and me live in perfect liberty. In

May

Month of May is here, for us it means leaves changes their color and we have expecting a little bit cold weather; compares to pervious month. Dryness of the season will be seased and flowers and the greens get more water. It is time a dance for God. Having patience to see the Spring. I am wondering where are we now? I have readers almost all around the world. I know you are in different season of the year. I wonder where are you right now? And what do you up to? Because we are almost near the half year and our gratitude need to be lift it up from where we are now. Do you see the wonder of God around you? Have you noticed it? Even with your difficulties and pain. Bibles talkes about it ” for everything there is a season”.

autumn-beautiful-color-609769

I believe; we are living in the edge.. a generation forget about their identity. Searching and seeking and looking everywhere to find it. Sanctification , seems, it is a heavy duty now, that reached to border of impossible! Living in a world of 21 century and freedom. Millions of information in a second in your hand! Accessing anything at anything! Advanced medical and great hospital facilities! With all that said , miserable to cure human soul and heart ! Forgot where we came from, forgot who is our soul creator , forgot about who died from us , forgot about who we are. I believe God is in work , even we forgot Him , He did not! He stayed on his promises, He loves to heals us. But ” If you faithfully OBEY the voice of the Lord you God “. I want to listen more to voice of God in this Month . I want to grab myself close to Him. I wan to know what will please Him. I want to clean myself from this sinful world and do what not makes me happy but Him because I know that time I am IN real joy and happiness.

I wrote a book many years ago about ” Happiness “. I asked my people around me gives a definition of happiness. Interestingly everyone had a different answer. God reveals himself differently to everyone but the destinations are same. Some said ” I define happiness to help others to love them as they are “. Some said ” I define happiness when I see my children walk with God ” …

abstract-autumn-autumn-leaves-213613.jpg

God of all universe gave us the cure for our soul and body. The cure is to obey Him. Than blessed be your basket and your plate. Than blessed be your household , Than blessed be your bread, if you obey the voice of the Lord. Living in the edge it does not mean , we are done, No. It means we have a chance to come back where we belong. He says ” Come, everyone who thirsts “. It is time to rise up in your community and help someone from fire. It is time to be a leader to lead your people for a good. It is time to be you and brave as you are. Jesus said ” I am with you where ever you go “. Chosen people are protected by almighty God, Do not allow a little fear keeps you hold of the plan and purpose of God. Your mission is bigger than your fears. Behold I made you my people.

So , look to future. B R E A T H E. Means [be] Brave  Refresh Excitement Able Transform Hopeful Enjoy.

We are going to be brave; our God is greater of all.

We are going to be refreshed ; we will renew our hearts and mind to be like him everyday.

We are so excited for what he has stored for us.

We are Able; because He is able than we can do all things through Him.

We are changed and transformed by his grace. Always there is second chance.

We have hope for a great revival in us , in our family , in our community , city and country.

We enjoy the life he has given us in this life and that life.

Take Heart and keep going and always look for a change that can transform your life forever. This going to happen when you trust and let it go .

Wonder of..

I like to walk in  the jungle. In a quite moment of birds’ songs. The songs of old trees. Those trees which clapping for me momently with their beautiful leafs. I like to see people are chatting on the balmoral street. They are old- experienced and beautiful souls. They saw the life more than me. Their houses are a treasure of heaven, Their hearts are most amazing diamond.

How God lovely made us. Different opinion, different look , different love , different approaches.

Perfect love covers all our differences. We are made to be united. From one family, one mum and dad . One, to have full life for a better.

Thousands of voices out there. Right and Wrong are mixed! God is good. Kettle is boiling a hot water. We are in the border of a change! Eating an apple from garden and cooking chicken on charcoal. Swim in a salty water … Life is good. I do not need to be afraid. Short life make a better of me. Wonder of which voice I am listening to ?

 

We are here to respect each other. We are here to love each other deeply. Yes , we make mistakes and we are like the waves of the stormy ocean. wonder of who am I respecting to?

art-background-bird-891676.jpg

Now , My heavenly father , There ; from your throne come and sit in my heart again. Take away my impurity. Give me wings like birds to fly. A voice to sing for you. When I cry count them and replace it with a morning joy. Father, When I see people are dying and suffering because of injustice my heart will break- take it and comfort it . Lord , my mind is short to know your glory. I obey you. Let me know you again. Let me be closed to you. On my way to work , I think of your wonderful jobs in my life. Indeed it was great Lord, But I need a fresh miracle- I need a miracle today to have testimony for tomorrow. I am searching for it even in my unknown place. I am seeking and longing for that Jesus. You died for me that I can ask today- You died for me on the cross that I can have this power to be you and no body else! I do not want to be copy! I want to be a real holy and pure version of you. Wonder of who am I in you? 

People by their act indirectly asking me who do you believe? I am into sinful world Lord. You said me before be carful and know there would be trouble for you but I did not believe it that time- but Jesus please do not ask me again because I can see it with my eyes how people are suffering , how am I deep into heart of trouble! Please give me your hand when I am falling down and lift me up; don’t allow your precise one sink into unknown. Oh my dear One. I want to know you more and every piece of me thirsty for your presence. My inner being shouting for your greatness and love. Where there is no hope I would be your light there. I know myself your ambassador , encounter me with your sunrise of faith where I can push myself to believe you more. Wonder of how can I be used by you?

Now I realise how much you love me. When I took the second step toward you. When I returned home to You. Home is a safe place for me. Let me be unknown here but I am number ONE in your eyes! Where my eternity with You..always.

Love you!

Joy in the Holy Spirit

We are NOT left out . Jesus went. The Holy Spirit came.  We have never been alone during the history of humanity , God never left his people , He never forsaken us. We are worry for simple things, we are confused because we are carnal minded. We mix the things that are not good for our soul. Body may enjoy for a short time but is the long suffering for our soul. God intention was always to keep our soul fresh and away from distraction. But this is our choice to choose short term joy rather than long term. Look at the scripture which is our soul’s feed :

“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. ” ( Romans 14 : 17 )

The secret of the joy  is to have spirit-minded . Carnal-mind makes us away of the joy of God. You can be a source of peace in the huge storms around us.  There is nothing in this world gives you more than the Holy Spirit will give you. You can contain whole the stars in your bag  + the whole galaxy ; it would be not better than having a joy in the spirit.

Joy is the one the fruit of the Holy Spirit. If you have a joy , you have assurance , you have security , you have peace within you no matter where you are! ” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace…” ( Galatians 5 : 22-23)

The Joy of God contain a whole beautiful things together ! It is like package of happiness. Does not matter how much you earn , or what position you have in society , it is the level of your love to your God.

person-1207641_1920

Choose Joy , Choose Peace . Come close to Him , He will come close to you.

As a young people we are open-wild to choose whatever we want! To go wherever we want! To do what ever we feel. I am not denying it at all. You have feeling , You have dreams and desires. But HOW GOOD is that you choose the JOY of the Lord. Commit your life from now on to God. Let Him make you strong. Let Him be your joy.

“The prospect of the righteous is joy,,” ( Proverbs 10 : 28 )

“Joy is the serious business of Heaven. ” ( C.S Lewis ).

Inject Joy in your life – Take the good one and have peace within you. God is faithful.

What joy whose trust is in the Lord. What Joy , Listen to Susan Ashton  and let God touch your heart and be filled again with the Joy of the Lord.

One touch of the living God , change your whole life forever. What joy is that! Choose Joy of the Spirit , let heaven be reached to you.

Here ….

Now …

Forever…

He is God. He is Joy. He is for you…

Hallelujah.

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!

flower-1544382_1280

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 ”

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.

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.

DSC03318

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

Who ?

Everyone .

what?

Eternal life.

When?

God knows.

Choose love today. Choose Him.

Please send me your encouragement comment and testimony and how this decision shape your love forever.

 

 

 

 

 

Obey and take the land.

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

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

 

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

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

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

IMG_0552

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

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

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

Philippians 4 : 4

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

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

The Kingdom of God

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6 : 33

What is the kingdom of God? It is about the spiritual kingdom of heaven over our life. You submit your life to God’s authority. You obey His command and everything you do glorify Him . His kingdom is your kingdom. You do a spiritual fight . Daniel said that “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” Daniel 2: 44.

Now  the kingdom of God is within you. Whom Christ lifted it by the power of the Holy Spirit. His Kingdom is imperishableF. If you are looking for a stable and forever peace kingdom , so welcome to God’s kingdom. Seek His righteousness then everything will be added to you. This is not your fight , this is His.

kingdom

The scripture obviously says “ seek the kingdom of God” or “ seek the kingdom of Heaven”. It meant that is not the kingdom of this earth , or another physical planet . Jesus is saying that seek the unseen God and His authority . Seek His face even you can not see it.  Normally repentance would be up in this situation when you seek his ways you repent and turn of your sinful nature and back to God. The salvation will be substituted in this situation.

Paul also says in his letter to the church in Corinth “I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 15: 50.

To this very end the natural desires comes second and the supernatural desires comes first .

Paul continues with this that “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” .vastly we see the kingdom of God in the old Testament . The kingdom of God is a changing process inside out. It is not something you can touch but in a way is present and you can feel it within you.

The church of Christ can help you to find a way to reach the kingdom of God but all depends on you and your decision. The kingdom of God is not pushy , it is a soft and powerful home that brings the heaven inside of you. But , wait , It does not mean when we lost our physical reality we will lose the kingdom of God. As I said it is a spiritual reality , it is a spiritual kingdom , it will never die. It will never be faded. You will be still alive. It is really important with this mortal body seek His kingdom. This is honourable. You are still on the earth with this body but you are covered with the kingdom of God, isn’t this awesome ?

I can write to you about the kingdom of God pages and pages. In this short article I want to encourage you that as a Christian seek first His kingdom , because your hope is not on earthly things rather on heavenly realm . Yes , when you sought His will than your earthly needs will be met.

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 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

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.

Run Praise Song

1040 BC , King David born- The largest book of the bible written by him. The new testament mentioned 75 times about the Psalms of David. Also King David did not write all of the Psalms but his the most prolific writer of songs.  Most modern Christian songs is revelation of his poetry to God. If you’ve never read the book of Psalms , I suggest to you  set a plan to read it .

I  have just given you a short introduction about David and his book Psalms.  If we look at carefully to David’s life, We will learn a lot about praise, peace and pursue, He is a person to after God’s heart. He said in his book:

” It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man” ( Psalms 118:8).

The reality is David praises his God not one time , two  times , or three times. His praise and worship goes seven times a day(Psalms 119:164). In this view most of us do not raise his name even once a day. The thing is here David in his terrible time , the time of dark and cave has written his best songs to God. If he wants to start something he first praise his God and give thanks to Him.

Let us read what was the David’s prayer asking God to build a house for Him.

David Praises God

There in front of the whole assembly King David praised the Lord. He said, “Lord God of our ancestor Jacob, may you be praised forever and ever!  You are great and powerful, glorious, splendid, and majestic. Everything in heaven and earth is yours, and you are king, supreme ruler over all.  All riches and wealth come from you; you rule everything by your strength and power; and you are able to make anyone great and strong Now, our God, we give you thanks, and we praise your glorious name

He surrenders all to him , He confessed that the Lord his God is all above all kings.  Look at carefully how David with the heart of kindness praises Him:

He says :

oh Lord God

You are great …

You are King…

You are able…

Most of us we make question instead of statement ,

We do ask :

Are you great?

Are you king?

Are you able?

If we really believe that He is able, therefore we do not stop at the door of doubt. Did you surrender every corner of your life to Jesus by Praising Him? Don’t allow your trail make a track of doubt that he is not great  or he is not in control. Indeed He is in involved in every detail of your life. His silence does not mean he is absent.

We can not test Him, We can not find his greatness through good / bad things happening to us. His sovereignty never changes. God is spirit , we need to praise him in spirit.

IMG_1112

Do not allow your physical world , neglect your spiritual world!

David continues his prayer by saying :

“Yet my people and I cannot really give you anything, because everything is a gift from you, and we have only given back what is yours already.”

What a declaration! He realised that and consciously says those words. We can not really give anything to Him. God has everything. Our job is only praising Him As David did. If we have everything in our life is a gift from Him only. We bless others that what God has given us. It is not ours , It is Him .

So I urge you give your heart to Him by praise.

“Praise the Lord your God!”

We are all human and full of need and mistakes. The think is here we need ‘ to have need’, we need those crazy mistakes to build a strong relationship with God. If you are perfect do you really need a God? the question is here Yes. Because he created you, the deeper inside of you shout to join at peace in Him.

Be a man and woman of God that after His heart. Stop asking wrong question. start to praise Him.

Praise open the new doors of possibilities.

New opportunities will come in a pure praising.

Start praise Him for your small things. Run for praising Him.
