We all face various challenges especially at this point in time. The darkness of fear has so saturated the earth and paralyzed people into hopelessness. But we have the GOOD NEWS that has always been made available for us to partake and that is the kingdom of His marvelous LIGHT in Christ.
Whatever situation we are in, we have been freely issued this invitation to be SAVED from our difficulties, apart from being SAVED for eternity which is the greatest miracle of all time, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light. His Name is Jesus Christ, our SAVIOR. To be SAVED, we need a SAVIOR.
“My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest.” (Matthew 11:28-29 The Voice)Continue reading “He Leads, We Follow”
Apart from the finished work of Jesus Christ, God’s holy presence can never be freely approached, let alone be dwelt in. But believing and receiving what the powerful precious Blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus, purchased and fully paid for, once and for all, forgiving all our sins and unrighteousness and remembering them no more, we can boldly and confidently come before the throne of grace anytime and anywhere to obtain mercy and find grace in time of our need. His precious blood gave us right standing with our Father, never to be rejected nor neglected any longer, but received and embraced in the Beloved.
“For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].” (2 Corinthians 5:21 AMPC)
God ALWAYS causes us to triumph in Christ.
“Now thanks be to God who ALWAYS leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”Continue reading “We Are Victorious!”
II Corinthians 2:14 NKJV
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His UNDERSTANDING IS UNSEARCHABLE. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength.” (Isaiah 40:28-29 ESV)
At this day and age, what is most vital in our lives is to be firmly rooted and grounded in the steadfast love of the Lord that never ceases, never fails, never gives up and never runs dry. When we do not throw away our confidence in His love, we shall be rewarded.Continue reading “God’s Unsearchable Understanding”

“Yet, Christ paid the FULL PRICE to set us FREE from the curse of the law. He absorbed it completely as He became a curse in our place. For it is written: “Everyone who is hung upon a tree is doubly cursed.” Jesus, our Messiah, was cursed in our place and in so doing, dissolved the curse from our lives, so that ALL the blessings of Abraham can be poured out upon even non-Jewish believers. And now God gives us the promise of the wonderful Holy Spirit Who lives within us when we believe in Him.” (Galatians 3:13-14 TPT)
I was once browsing facebook when this beautiful photo of Colorado Sunflower Sunset taken by a friend of mine caught my attention. It is just too wondrous not to take notice. Then, I remembered this verse that says …

“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV)
Today is another day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Why? Because when God gave us His one and only beloved begotten Son, Jesus Christ, such wonderful expression of love made a way for us to come to close to Him so much so that He graced us to be IN HIM and Him IN US. What can be more closer than this divine intimacy that we with with Him? In response to His great love, we love Him. We love because He first loved us and our love for Him is articulated and demonstrated in our obedience to His leading.
“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14L23 NIV)
Recently, I was asked this question, “Why do we still worry when we are not supposed to, because our God knows what will happen tomorrow or in the future and prepared everything for us? But, we are just humans. Or do we still lack faith?”
Hmmmmm … when impromptu questions come, it really makes me think deeper and see what is in my heart. I avoid answering just for the sake of answering. I also want to know and learn from what comes out from deep within me.
God’s thoughts and ways are higher yet He made it possible for us to tap into them and be influenced by them in the presence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in us Who endlessly reveals the truth of the Word of God to us.
The finished work of Jesus Christ made us new creations in Him. It came by grace through faith, but the renewal of our minds that brings forth transformation in our lives is our part to play as we meditate His Word day and night. What grace has made available, our faith explores.
“And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be TRANSFORMED and PROGRESSIVELY CHANGED [as you mature spiritually] by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].” Romans 12:2 AMP
