I don’t know where do you live now. But i live here in Australia. Which the seasons and weather are very different. Here , you feel different. My summer is your winter. Now as you may trembling of your cold season ( Winter ) , I am looking for a fan for my room . 36- 42 is the average temperature , Hot Hot Hot.

This is me now:

giphy

I know , I know. May your side is snow – But here is so very hot!

Okay – as i am sweating now – lets go back to topic . I am going to share you something that God put in my heart last night.

In three things God responding you in this year. In book of Joel chapter 2 : 18 – 22 we read this.

1- God is jealous ( I AM jealous )

The Jealousy of God is good for you because when He is jealous for you it means He is counting on you. It means you are included not excluded from plan of God. He is not jealous because He wants or He needs something rather because He is in love with you. If the jealousy of God is my benefit let it be. Why not? As i am talking about a godly jealousy which is right to say it. Being Jealous is not sin when desiring something that belongs to you ( opposite of this is sin). We are belong to God , so than , He has right to be jealous for us.

So , Yes , He is so jealous for you. Because He loves you. That is why God go into action to get his people back. If you are far from Him , Still He is jealous for you. Still you are in a circle of love in Him.

2- God is compassion ( I  Am compassion )

God’s compassion freely given . Yahweh boldly declares, “I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” ( Exodus 33:19 ). ” He took pity on His people ” . He is remembering you that you are human and vulnerable in most ways. It was God’s compassion that He sent His begotten Son . He will cover you this year ahead. Yes, His Compassion will be sufficient. Even you are in hardest and difficult time , He will remember you. In deep down His Compassion will heal you.

“Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes”

Psalm 103:13-18

 

3- God answered ( I Am the answer)

He is your answer for this year with all challenges and ups and downs. He is the Lion. No one is like Him. He listens to you. He does not listen to the lie of enemy . He is on your side. He is your God. He is the answer of all your unanswered questions.  It is a new season, a season of new beginning. Le the old-me-gone and Le the new-me-come!

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. ( Isaiah 65:24 )

We Say : I need an answer!

God says : I am your answer!

We say : It is difficult

God says : I am the answer

We say : I can not do it

God says : I am the answer ( I am able)

Whatever is your situation looks like , He is the answer. Do not be discouraged because your God is STRONG . Do not go anywhere to search for the answer . Go to Him , He is the source of all the answers.

In all scenarios  He says ” I AM “.

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.
