Nature has a story to tell, a new fresh start, don’t delay getting into the nature

I barely could juggle my foot when I walked on a long iron-like bridge in the middle of a jungle back home. My brother used to walk on it quickly; even he had a drink or two. My older cousin always looked after him when he couldn’t keep himself straight for a moment. We used to go out for a nature day call; every family gathered and celebrated and have a meal in the middle of nature and being together; I loved it, because there was such power when we gathered as family.
I have always loved nature, don’t make me wrong, everyone loves nature; I am very connected to it and understand the fresh smell of wild strawberries. Maybe spending time in nature in my hometown was why my love grew in being there. I learned the power of the family and how it is essential to be bound together. Nature taught me well.
Back to our reality, As I walked through nature in Australia, I remembered how faithful is God. I came a long way, I came from an anonymous past to a known-now present with a new identity which something makes me: me, who God loves. I took the below photos with a view of a new fresh start. It will inspire you and it warmed my heart :

Have a plan to go in nature, walk and enjoy the fresh air, and hear the sound of it. What will you learn? Stillness, kindness.

Beautiful nature at Buddero National Park

Here some are beautiful nature photos from Buddero national park. The interesting thing about nature is they continue to proclaim the beauty of God. As some are hurting the planet, other people of all tribe and nation are admiring the voiceless sound of trees, rivers and mountains. God is hovering over all. The Bible says, “Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.” (Psalms 19:2 NLT)
How come they continue to speak and praise Him with a voiceless sound? How come we don’t honour and proclaim His Name? They make Him known. Heaven and earth all belong to Him only. Let’s see his magnificence and make Him known. Are you with me in this? Thank God for this. With all our weaknesses, we can see and enjoy his handwork.

God is..

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

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

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

How do you become perfect in His love?

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

God is Love.

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

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

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

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

God knows about you and He still love you.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
