“ The person that does God’s will for their life is the most fulfilled and satisfied person.” Ps. David
“Are we aware that the life God put in us is a divine life which cannot exist but through Him?” Ps. Eldos
In the light of deciding what I want to make of my life ahead of me.
Over the last couple of weeks, God has once again cemented His reassurance
in me through these words.I might not know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future.
finally understood the difference between these two today when Herman explained it in the sermon.
Mercy is withheld punishment | undeserved pardon | not getting what you deserve and Grace is unmerited favour | getting what you dont deserve.
most of the time, when I read about His grace and mercy, i only got the first half of it. but today, i realized the other half of it. I was pardoned from the penalty of sin and then showered with an abundant of love. And Im in awe again thinking of God. He not only loves, but He loves beyond what we could ever hope for!
Transitions. Change. New realities. Adapting.
Recent events lately had me seeing things in new light. and making me realized how much I’ve been holding on to what was and expecting the new realities to remain the same as they were. the biggest changes are always concerning the people around me. The people I love. But even people change. Situations changes, things happen that are out of our control. People move on, people go their separate ways. and what remains the same?Only God. He is the same yesterday today and forever. And God is so timely. He really knows our hearts. 2 dreams, group discussion on friday, one sermon, a passage in the bible is more than enough to realized what He’s been trying to tell me.
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven.
And in verse 11, it’s a comfort to read these words.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” If there is one thing at all I’ve learnt in the past year, is to know and trust that everything He does, He does for a reason. And that all that He does (whether it might seem good or bad at that time) is for me to get closer to Him.
Changes come painfully sometimes. heartaches and all that. But what are those in the light of eternity? 2 Cor 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. Phil 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Most assuredly I say to you,unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it reminds alone.but if it does it produces much grain.
John 12: 45
And He who sees Me sees Him who sent me. I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.
John 13: 34
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
If you love me, keep my commandments.
John 14: 27
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let it not be afraid.
Things I wanna give thanks for:
1. Simone lil Facebook message. <3
2. Caryn & her prayer
3. Liz, who out of the blue and out of her generous heart bought me this pretty spring scarf.
4. Hui Ye cooking dinner for me, and bringing all kinda of junk food over to teman me.
5. Alce, Mia, Jacqueline and Jerrica’s individual messages to me. All filled with love.
6. Mikaylie and her mature response to being corrected and her whatsapp message.
7. Reading little notes from appreciation night.
8. God putting different people in different points of the week, to affirm what He wanted to say to me.
9. Closure, and strength to do what He wants me to do.
10. His word. His word that never ceased to speak into our hearts.
“How can I not be moved by all Your goodness, all Your blessings, by all that You’ve done in my life. How can I turn my back on You when I’ve experienced You so much this year.” Giving up things has never been easy. But it’s worth it for the One who have it all up for you.
Got stuck in the tube, on a Monday morning of what seems like a never ending week from the previous weeks of 9-12ams in london. It really goes against every instinct you have to stand still and not do anything. In those moments, His words came – through the list of memory verses we have been reminding ourselves with.
These things I have spoken to you, that in me You may have peace.
in this world, you will face tribulations,but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Never experience such a strong sense of peace before. it’s was a reassurance from Daddy God.
The Word of God definitely is alive and living. Just 4 days before God kept re-emphasizing the same theme through:
1) Mikaylie singing in the living room just before bible study: “thank you Lord, I just wanna thank you Lord.”
Definitely felt His presence so tangible all the way up from my room.
2) bible study : Phil 4
Rejoicing in God always! Despite what the circumstance may be. Submitting to God in prayer. That peace that transcends all understanding.
3) the amazing time we had during Friday fellowship. It was extra special, having everyone in the room shout out something to be thankful for, sharing and encouraging one another in prayer and seeing people spend intimate moments with God in their own way.
3) Songs on Sunday : Waiting on Him, You are the peace that guards my heart.
4) consciously choosing not to worry! Matthew 26. And God providing the solution when I released the control I’ve to Him.
O God! You are great! In times like this, heart is bursting to sing out to You!
Eileen Fisher: My Goodness is About to Unroll Over Your Nation
by Eileen Fisher, Apr 13, 2013
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on March 12, 2013 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
The Lord said, “I’ve heard you. I have witnessed your hearts tonight. I have witnessed the tears: those inward and those outward. I tell you this night – by Myself, for there is no greater – I capture your tears. I capture your heart. I capture your dreams. Now I say, ‘Capture Mine.’
“When you capture My dream, and when you capture My heart, and when you capture My vision, then you become all I have called you to be – Me walking upon the earth – not alone, not isolated, not forgotten, not abandoned. You will have no need to be understood, but instead you choose to understand. You have no need for recognition, and yet you will choose and want Me recognized.
Capturing God heart: him allowing us to feel and see what He sees. Eternal perspective. After God’s own heart. Personalizing the vision knowing our calling in earth.
No needing to be understood or recognized : not about me. Insecurity is not there- outwardly looking at God and others. Not at me.
“Become My hands, become My feet, become My voice wherever you are. Listen for the stillness of My Spirit. Recognize the unction of My Spirit, for you are being lifted up and trained in a high level.
Training: unleashing our God given potential. Walking in the Spirit – is to walk in accordance to what He would do.
“Know I purified My people. I am purifying motives. I am pulling down self-ambition and self-appointed. I am calling My own to come and lay before Me in stillness, yet in alertness, recognizing My hand upon their heart, recognizing the prompting of My Spirit. I am looking for a people who will move for Me upon the earth. They will not be asking Me to move, but I will be looking and commanding them to move.
Purification. Biggest message ever. Laying down self ambition & pride. next part strikes me more: having to wait on God’s timing but not in a relaxed state of mind. Still constantly alert to actively do His will. Yes He will cause growth but we still have to water and plant and harvest.
“Be not called into isolation, for the enemy would lead you there. For he would make you feel forsaken and abandoned. I do not forsake you, I do not abandon you; but I cherish you, and I treasure you.
Enemy’s biggest lie: God doesn’t care.
“I sent Mine out two-by-two, for at times one would be up and one would be down. But when I was with them, they were three in agreement. Know that I am looking for a people who will come to be in agreement with the Father, with the Spirit, and with Me.
Importance of being able to share & encoursge & cover one another in prayer and faith! Trinity – speaks of relationship. Not individuality.
“The Spirit is going to move in a miraculous way, and I am looking for those I can trust to move in signs, and wonders, and miracles, who will not look for the glory. In fact, they will have the ‘Fear of the Lord’ so in front of them that they will tremble in awe at My goodness. For My goodness is about to capture you. My goodness is about to unroll over your nation. And you will know it is the goodness of God that has been holding back the darkness.
“I say, be not afraid, but watch, wait, recognize the cloud of My goodness, and know when the cloud of my goodness is rolling, you too will be rolled up, protected, and sheltered in the cloud of the goodness of your God,” says the Lord your God.
everything that God has been saying to me, personally, to us as a church, throughout the 40day fast till Hopefest and after Hopefest is encompassed in this. The word of God is living and true.
