Answered Prayer

All of us must have experienced challenges that seemed to be at a dead end.  When this happened, I am pretty sure that all of us must have also looked up to God when there seemed to be no way after everything else that we considered to be exit signs failed.  I, for one, was one of those who made God as the last resort.  Thankfully, God is always doing a new thing every single day for His mercies are new every morning

Beautiful Feet

How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”  (Isaiah 52:7 NKJV)

We can never give what we do not have.  Unless our feet have been washed by Jesus Christ Who came not to be served but to serve, we don’t have a part with Him (John 13:8).

The Apple of His Eye

The Lord our God orchestrates wonderful adventures for us every single day.  He longs to go through the day fellowshipping with us.  He waits to be invited into our daily routine, into our plans and into all the in-betweens.  He desires us to be aware of Him every step of the way.  Can you imagine He never sleeps nor slumbers and watches over you and me 24/7?  We are the apple of His eye that whoever touches us touches the very core and center of His eye. (Zechariah 2:8)  Hmmmm … try poking someone’s eye and you will find out how sensitive and delicate it is.  Then you’ll know that’s how precious we are to Him that whoever hurts us hurts His eye more that you and I could ever dare think or imagine.  He sees us of great worth and His mind is full of us.

When We Say YES To God

IMG_1618

No one knows what our day will be like the very moment we open our eyes but thank God that HE is an Omniscient God Who knows all things.  “He knows when we sit and when we arise; He perceives our thoughts from afar.” (Psalm 139:2)  Yes, we start with this declaration, “This IS the day that the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV)  Yes, we believe that if HE made the day, then it must be GOOD!  Nothing comes out of HIM that HE IS NOT and because our God is GOOD, then only GOOD things come out of HIM.  Our knowledge of His goodness causes us to have a confident and joyful expectation for our day to be good.

I love how the Message translation says it, “This is the very day God acted— let’s celebrate and be festive!

Love Never Fails

IMG_1496

Free will is a God-given privilege.  I is an attribute of LOVE.  He created us to have freedom, for us not to be forced or coerced into something we don’t desire to do.

In worship, I used to ask the Lord why doesn’t He just come in His powerful glory invading the earth where everyone who comes under the glory cloud won’t have much of a choice but to bow down low and worship Him.  How glorious it would look then when all of us will be glued low in honor and reverence of His presence.  But then I came to realize that when He always comes this way, He would be negating our free will to worship Him.

The God of the Breakthrough

IMG_1483

It is but norm for all of us to be believing for our breakthroughs here and there, and not just believing but really seeing them to tangibly manifest before our eyes.  This is the cry of everyone’s heart.   But, in the waiting, what do we do?

He said, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”(Galatians 6:9 NIV)

No Other Love

IMG_1482

Do you know why it’s foolishness to the world the ways of God, Who He truly is, His nature and attributes?  It’s all because a human intellect can only go so far.  It’s capacity to comprehend cannot even scratch the surface of knowing His inexhaustible greatness. A created being can never be greater than the CREATOR.   Yet man continues to pridefully deny His existence and tries to figure out by himself what life is all about.  No wonder we still live in a world where peace is undeniably inexistent.

JESUS is the PRINCE OF PEACE and apart from Him, there will be no peace.

JESUS is the HOPE of Glory, therefore PEACE is still a possibility in the world of impossibility.
