Living sacrifices

An interesting translation of Romans 12:1‭-‬2 MSG

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

May it help us to examine our hearts and draw us closer to our Creator.

Faithful one

Faithful One, so unchanging

Ageless One, You’re my rock of peace,

Lord of all I depend on You.

I call out to You, again and again

I call out to You, again and again.

Let’s sing it again

Faithful One so unchanging

Faithful One so unchanging

Ageless One, You’re my rock of peace,

Lord of all, I depend on You.

I call out to You, again and again

I call out to You again and again.

You are my Rock in times of trouble

You are my Rock in times of trouble

You lift me up when I fall down

All through the storm your love is the anchor

My hope is in You alone

Sing it again

Faithful One so unchanging

Faithful One so unchanging

Ageless One you’re my rock of peace,

Lord of all I depend on You.

I call out to You again

I call out to You again and again

I call out to You again and again.

You are my Rock in times of trouble

You lift me up when I fall down

All through the storm your love is the anchor

My hope is in You alone

You are my Rock in times of trouble

You are my Rock in times of trouble

You lift me up when I fall down

All through the storm your love is the anchor

My hope is in You alone

Seek and hide

I’m sure most of us have played the game ‘hide and seek’ during our childhood days. It’s a very simple one – you hide and then someone has to find or seek you. 🙈😊

In Psalm 63 David starts by saying “O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you…”. But as you read further in verse 7 he says “for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy”. The psalmist knew he was hidden and well protected in the shadow of God’s wings. Yet he still seeks for God. For he knew that the more you seek him the more you become like him.

What are you seeking today? Are you still hiding from God? Remember there is no place you can hide where God can’t find you. In fact God came seeking for you and me in the person of Jesus Christ the Son of God. And I’m so glad that he found me! Hallelujah!

Be still…

God’s plans for us are well known to Him. Sometimes we may unknowingly or even knowingly go against His plan, but by God’s grace He will guide us back.

As I’ve been studying about prophet Elijah since a few days, I’m reminded as to how even after literally bringing down from heaven, he ran for his life thinking that he was the only prophet of the true God remaining alive.

I love the way God speaks to Elijah… In a still small voice!!!
(Refer to 1 Kings 19:12)
Not in the strong wind, nor the earthquake or even the fire but in a still small voice.

For Elijah to hear God speaking to him in a still small voice he first had to be silent and still himself. That’s exactly what God wants us to be – STILL & SILENT. Only then will we be able to hear God speak to us.

Elijah finally learns that he’s not alone. In fact God had kept safe 7000 people who remained faithful to Him.

So if you’re facing a mountain of a problem ahead or even a tiny one just be still and let the Lord handle it!

Have a wonderful day! God bless…!😇😊💕🙏🙌
