Quote for the day

The best atmosphere for PRAYER is PRAISE!

Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.
Psalm 47:6 NIV

Unchanging God

Have you observed how a chameleon “changes” it’s color? Or how a cuttlefish transforms itself to “look like” sand in order to catch it’s meal?

Human beings are not very different. People change their “colors” sometimes very easily in certain situations. Even those who call themselves Christians. Some even “look like” followers of Jesus Christ. But in difficulties and tough circumstances depend on their own strength or others instead of God.

But as true and believing Christians we can have solace in the fact that our creator God and Saviour Lord Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NIV)

God has promised to be with us at all times.

We have a quadruple assurance!

1. The Lord himself goes before you

2. he will be with you;

3. he will never leave you

4. nor forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV

Encouraging verses in the Old Testament on the same topic:-

1. He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.” (1 Samuel 15:29 NIV)

2. God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? (Numbers 23:19 NIV)

Hope this thought encourages you today and everyday!

Have a blessed day and week ahead.

God bless you….😇💕💞

New day! New hope! New opportunities!

Waking up to a new day with my first thought “Thank you Lord for keeping me alive!”

I believe that God has a plan for me. I may not know it yet. But I’m glad that He is in control and I can rest on Him.

Everything around me reminds me that there is a source of life. The breath we breathe is given by God. So don’t let anyone or anything hinder you from living for the Lord.

Every new day is one day closer to our Saviour’s return. What a blessed and glorious hope! And yes, every new day is another opportunity to work for the Lord and tell everyone what God has done in our lives.

May His name be glorified….

CONFESS, LOVE, OBEY and RELY

1. CONFESS – Repentance is the first step of Christianity. You have to first realise that without God you are nothing, without God you can do nothing. It is only by God’s grace we can be saved. Conviction of sin leads to confession. (Acts 2:38)

2. LOVE – Once we know God we learn to LOVE Him (1John 4:8) because God himself is Love. His love is eternal and pure. Our love for God is within our understating, limited to a certain extent. Because God loves us we can love others.

3. OBEY – If we truly love God we will obey Him. ( John 14:15) If anyone obeys God’s Word, God’s love is truly made complete in him.(John 2:5) If we claim to obey God’s Word we must act and live according to it.

4. RELY – If we love and obey God, we will rely upon Him and trust in Him at all times. Especially during the bad and difficult times. At times we may falter but God is ever ready to accept us when we go back to Him.

May God give you and me His grace to stand firm till the very end.

Relationships -Made by God

God created man in his own image so that He could have communion or fellowship with us. Therefore we can relate to other human being in different relationships. God did not create us to be alone. (Gen 2:18 – I will make you a helper.)

God instituted the bond of marriage between a man and woman. Reproduction is God’s plan and purpose for humanity.

Just like our earthly family, we are part of God’s family. Our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus share a special eternal bond with us.

God has blessed us with a family to love and care. God is himself our Heavenly Father.

God’s time- Wait for it!

He has made everything beautiful in it’s time. (Eccl 3:11)

Our gracious God knows our past, present and future. We can rest in His loving care knowing that he is with us at all times. He has planned out each day for us according to His will. Our Heavenly Father knows what is best for us. He provides us all our needs abundantly. And most importantly He gives us His grace to wait upon Him.

The nation of Israel waited 400 years to be free from slavery!

The fall of Babylon came 66 years after the prophet Habakkuk prophesied!

Though we may have to linger, God’s appointed time is unknown. But we know that He keeps His word. (Ps 40:1-3)

Those who hope in the Lord will not be disappointed. (Isa 49:23)

Set your eyes on the Lord and not on the circumstances. And keep the faith!
