Jesus Is Second To NONE!

IMG_2381

When we adore or revere someone, don’t you think we would like to be acknowledged by that someone?  We sometimes get out of our way to be seen and to be taken notice of. Oh yes, that’s a default attribute of being on planet earth.  At times we find ourselves searching in the net what the person is doing at the very moment and where.

Don’t worry!  It’s just but norm to behave this way.  The only thing that we need to redefine is WHO to adore that will give most value to our very being.  To WHOM shall we pour all of our affections on and be rest assured that we will NEVER be disappointed.   Continue reading “Jesus Is Second To NONE!”

Answered Prayer

IMG_1663

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).

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)

Customized Favor!

IMG_1357

The enemy always causes our eyes to see the favor of God in other people’s lives and when he does it, it creates confusion, comparison and jealousy.  BUT when God directs our eyes to see His favor in other people’s lives, He will cause our hearts to yearn to know Him more and discover His favor in our own lives that satisfies.

How the enemy always twists how we see things by the power of his lying whispers that when not silenced by the written, revealed, spoken word of God can lead us to deception.
