the best gift to give to another person is your body.
it’s the greatest gift because u r giving yourself, not just money
or any material thing. so it’s priceless that cannot be bought w money.
in the same way, God wants us to present our bodies as living sacrifice. it’s the same meaning.
this personal sacrifice is larger than all the offerings n animal sacrifices.
true love is personal. not just physical love, but is of the spirit
the personal n emotional love between husband n wife is not just a sexual, physical love.
physical love alone cannot truly satisfy.
Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “U will be thirsty again”
the true love behind the relationship is of the spirit. it is not the body that governs the spirit;
rather it’s the spirit that governs the body.
it is of the heart, mind, soul n spirit.
love the Lord thy God w all thy heart, mind, soul n strength.
so the church at Ephesus has already left the first love.
the woman is no longer the only one the man loves.
she no longer is the first love. there r other women involved.
there r other gods that the church at Ephesus longs after.
God is no longer the first love, the only one special.
other things r more attractive that they enjoy more.
do u enjoy god? or is God old fashioned, n boring?
Love God. Keep this spirit of love strong within u.the spirit having the body.
not the body controlling the spirit in u.
The Lord will be with you always.
He is there when you need him,
and even those times when you are not calling out for Him.
God has never forgotten you, not even for a single second.
You are always on His mind, always in His heart.
Your Abba Father is constantly thinking of your future,
constantly seeking the best plan for you
as you make decisions in life.
So have faith in your God,
that you might see His mighty work in your life.
Know that you matter greatly to God
and He wants nothing less for you.
Renew your strength in the Lord,
find rest in Him
and let Him renew your mind as you wake up to a new day.
You will find life easier,
as if someone is helping to work things out,
even without you doing anything.
You will start to open your eyes to the little things in life
that you have never noticed before.
God’s presence must be with us every day
if we want to live a glorious life.
Let Him dwell in your heart and His peace be you peace.
Continue to love Me with all your heart;
have faith in Me.
I Am all you have got to hope for.
Stay and become the person I have created you to be;
use the gifts I have given you to the fullness.
You can do great and mighty things in My name.
Continue to have faith and trust in Me.
Love Me with all your heart, as I first loved you.
Draw closer to Me to feel
and know My comfort for you.
Have faith, and believe in new things.
I make all things new.
Do not go astray from My Word,
but dwell in My presence and in My awesomeness.
Be alert and be watchful
of the things that take place around you.
Whenever you have a doubt, come back to Me,
and I’ll light your path.
I’ve never given up hope on you, and never will.
Dwell in My Presence, as I speak to you
and tell you how much I love you.
Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself;
everything that you want, you are already that.
God is love. We must desire to be like Him, to allow Him to perfect His love in us. First to love Him, then to love our neighbors, n then for our enemies.
Love is the bond of perfection.(Colossians 3:14)
It is fulfilling of the Law of God n
the the whole Word of God. (Romans 13:8-10; Galatians 5:14)
What our enemies can do to us is ultimately to bless us.
Our enemies cannot destroy us. Only we can destroy ourselves by our own bitterness n hatred.
When they persecute us, they actually add to our eternal reward in heaven.
“Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’s sake; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you n persecute you, n say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, n be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven; for they also persecuted the prophets before you.”
No matter what they do against you, if you love your enemies, you will have complete victory, even when your heart is pierced, for His love is perfected in you.
Father in heaven,
Your ways are higher than our ways. We submit to Your will.
For U prepared a glorious future for us.
There are many things we do not understand, hard to understand.
Especially the sufferings we go through in our lives on this earth.
But You work all things out for good to those who love You.
As Jesus learned obedience by the things He suffered, n leave us an example to follow in His footsteps.
Lord, help me to forgive as my sins are also been forgiven.
Help me to love as I have been loved.
Help me to be merciful as You have been merciful to me.
Lord, help me also to deny myself, my will, my desires. n daily take up my cross.to die to self.
to take the yoke of Jesus upon my shoulder, to be equally yoked with Christ
n learn of Jesus, our pioneer of our salvation. to have the mind n attitude of Christ.
” I can do all things through Christ..Your grace is sufficient.”
And for this purpose we have been called, walking in the steps of Jesus, arming myself also with the same mind.”
For “he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin”
“I Count it all joy when i experience various trials” for it is testing of my faith which is precious to You.
“that i may be perfect n complete, lacking nothing.”
Life n death are in Your hand. I won’t die too early or too late..
Father I commit everything into Your hand.
In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen.
Live this life not just for ourselves, but also for others…family, children parents, spouse.others. Psalm 34:11-15 : Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. 12 Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. 14 Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.(the righteous) Children are a blessing from God. As parents, we are to bring them up to be godly,have a godly fear. This is the best thing we can give them, not material things n things of temporary pleasure. And they will be grateful to later in life. Home sweet home; there is no place like home. Family is a very important place, the place where u as a baby n where u grow up. a place where u belong, where u r born, where u come from. u can have only one family, one father, one mother. You r born in a family, unlike an orphan who never experiences the life of a family. Family is suppose to give u an environment of love for u to grow, to cherish n to remember till u die. A family .. when i look at the the birds in a bird nest. the birds live in a place of security n food n affection. that is what a family is meant to be. From young, teach your children godly fear.Teach them there is a God, merciful n full of love, yet a righteous God who judges. a God who rewards the righteous n punish the evil doers. there is a heaven for good people, n a hell fire for evil people who follow the ways of the evil one. there is a God, the maker of heavens n earth. men don’t come from monkeys. there is God, the beginning n the end. He is always in control, keeps the whole universe in perfect balance. He is Almighty God, who sees everything, n plan everything even before the universe n the earth was created. teach your children the fear of the Lord. by love, we lead them to the love of God, who is their heavenly Father by love, we lead them to trust in the bible, the Word of God as they grow in faith n years, they will read the bible for themselves n hear God themselves ultimately it is the Spirit of God who leads them. We are just human parents doing our best. at least, we provide a family, an environment of love for them to grow n think to come to know the love of God. a place where they belong n find comfort in. a place where their hearts n minds are influenced by the truth of the bible n the love of god. then we as parents have done our part. All teachings must come from the bible, with the right interpretations.The Word for training, for correction. We are only human parents trying our best. The goal is to lead them to the truth n love of God. God must take over their lives. We lead them to seek God with the right heart attitude. n we have done our part. The kingdom of God is also a family. We are to love one another, not just ourselves. Whatever affects one member affects the whole family. We must love n protect our family. We must also love our neighbors. Then God will bless us with harmony n peace. As we live in peace with one another, we have peace in us. For blessed are the peace makers. Impress on their young minds..to live in harmony with God, with one another, with our environment.even with nature. teach them that we are all traveling together; We are companions on the road through life, that every one of us trying to find the right way forward. We are all on the same journey, running the same race. We must try to live in harmony with one another, because we all need help and encouragement, especially when things are difficult. Teach them to live in harmony with our environment and thus appreciate the opportunities in life that God has given them. Learn to live in harmony with God, so that they walk with Him through life and thus obtain the priceless gift of eternal life. Teach them to live in agreement with God’s values and be familiar with His view of life. As God forgives our sins n our weaknesses, we must also forgive the sins of others As God is merciful to us, we must show mercy to others. Learn to be a servant in the family, for Jesus also came as a servant. Phil 2:7 “made Himself of no reputation,taking the form of a bond servant..” children are Gifts from God blessing from God (Psalm 127:3).”behold the children are a heritage from the Lord.The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior.” It is natural for parents to want the best for their children, Moses saying to Israel was that the greatest good they could do for their children was to properly instruct them in the things of God. That way they would be fed with something that could enable them to live forever. Feed yourself first the things that really matter and don’t forget to feed the children. How should we love and discipline our children? love our children not just for this life. but also towards eternal life. True love is not indulgence but instruction and correction. How God deals with us is how we deal with our children. All scripture to guide us.all truth comes from the bible. Parents are human n can make mistakes. Correction born of love is always tempered with mercy.teach your children mercy. James 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Our aim …… they might attain to the kingdom of God.the best time to teach your children about God is when they are still small children for the kingdom of God belong to such as them. Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. when they are young, we teach them from the bible.n they are receptive because they r young. all our teachings come from the bible. we lead them to the bible. once they are old enough to read the bible for themselves, it’s our aim that God Himself lead them by His Spirit. but first we must love them n teach them to trust in the bible.like a child trusting in the Father. feed your children. so they grow spiritually. “Not just food but also peace, for war will be no more; there will be fairness and justice. A balanced diet is not just enough to eat and drink. We need to feed the mind as well. with things that are good, honest, lovely and of good report. That is something we should be doing every day if we want to be spiritually fit and healthy. It was something that the infant nation of Israel was instructed to do,(Deut 6:6-7) as they were journeying through arid country, looking for better pastures. Moses told them that they should love God as their first priority and then he added: “These words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 6:6–7). teach them to call uncle, auntie. respect for elders. important. to respect authority. Our age generally rejects and even despises the concepts of authority, rules, law, and duty. People insist on doing their own thing, being their own person, and having their own way. Common to hear, “I don’t want anybody telling me what to do.” What should we teach our children?according to bible.not our wisdom 1 Chronicles 28:9 “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever. How we should teach our children. All correction n punishment must be done out of love n guided by God’s wisdom, not by our own wisdom or by uncontrolled anger, which does more harm than good. Generally the children who were properly punished grow up to become more obedient n grateful children. Proverbs 13:24 He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly. Proverbs 19:18 Chasten your son while there is hope, And do not set your heart on his destruction. Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And (if he takes it to heart) when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him. Ephesians 6:4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Father in heaven, Teach us wisdom to train our children, so that they have the fear of the Lord in their hearts, so that they are safe from devices of the devil, whose purpose is to steal, kill n destroy our heritage..our children. for they are the future generation, the future light to the world, the people who will live in the end times of great darkness. keep them safe from the evil one. their minds are enlightened, not deceived by the deception n darkness that the devil uses through movies n songs n computer games. to be gentle n peaceful people, away from the violence n hatred of the world. your peace in them. that they may be safe. as parents, we are responsible for their spiritual souls…especially when they r young. I pray in Yeshua’s name. Amein.
laughter lifts u up. makes u think positive n feel positive. n that is exactly what God wants u to do.. to laugh n think positive, to know that He can take care of everything, only if u look to Him n let Him handle.
Have u seen holy laughter…people on the floor under the anointing, n laughing like they are so happy. that is what usually happens when they come into God’s presence.
You may be looking for the fun way which is not the safe n secure way.
Go by the TRUTH n be sure of your way which is not by your own way.
Our ways are usually not the better way because we go by how we feel, by what we see n by the fun way which is not the best way.
What then is the best way, the sure way the way of lasting happiness, of inner fulfillment ,of peace?
There is only one truth, one way out there.
there is only one God one Truth, that lies beneath all mysteries
one road that leads us to eternity.
follow Jesus n u will see the truth u will find your way eventually.
let Him guide you let Him bring you through the storms in your life
Across the oceans, across the skies, there is only one true Kingdom, one treasure that belongs to us.
live life meaningfully. God is always there for you.
just call out His name n He’ll come to your rescue.
Everything in life has a purpose. Nothing happens by chance.
Even the things we don’t understand have a purpose in God’s plan.
God created everything n His hand upholds all things.
He takes care of the sparrows n He counted every hair on your head n any small change even in your appearance He notices.
the best LOVE STORY for your life is the one written by God especially for you.
for God knew you even before you were born.
I’ll stop searching for the answers. I’ll stop praying for an escape. and I’ll trust You, God, with all I have and believe that you will have Your way. just have Your way.
..this song changed my life last year.
Life is about fulfillment.
Imagine I am a billionaire or Pharaoh or Emperor of China;
I am still human, made from dust n to dust I will return.
In the meantime, virus n bacteria will give me flu n fever n bone pains.
I will grow old n my eye-sight will grow dim.
There is no glory in me, living on this earth day to day.
It’s like waiting for the day when I will pass away.
No. Life is more meaningful, more fulfilling than this.
Life should be beautiful n glorious.
There is an eternal life.
Only love can truly satisfy.
do not do it in your own strength,
whether u try to overcome the situation yourself
or try to change your own attitude
because it is not that simple
because even with all your best motives n intentions,
it is still not good enough.
that is what many try to do. a good try though. at least, u r humble.
but the real answer is to humble yourself BEFORE GOD
LET HIS GRACE do it.
just depend upon Him n love Him n let His love overwhelm u
Let His Almighty power moves your mountains by your faith of a mustard seed
that is all it takes.
The Lord wants u to be a better person everyday.
n to live day by day
depending totally upon His power n strength
n do not run this race alone.
because the path is not always straight n smooth.
because everyone needs a helping hand going through the life on earth
no matter how capable or independent a person might be.
we r all sinners in need of a Savior.
That’s why God gives us the Holy Spirit
Therefore pay attention to His voice, speaking to u.
Have the peace of God in u.
Things shall turn out for good with God.
Just rely n depend upon Him.
He’s your everything.
The Lord exalts the humble
and oppresses the proud.
You will know His voice
when you know His heart.
Be true n sincere to Him
and He will show Himself to you
Do not only see things on the surface
but seek the truth behind.
You will know what is right
and what is from God
when you feel the peace within you
God is peace
and He does not give you confusion
Knowing Me just by My name
and knowing Me truly,
like knowing My feelings and My character
are totally two different things.
Reading the bible with true understanding
Do not use human strength to think,
but allow Me to open your heart,
open your mind
to new revelations and discoveries.
There r many truths in the bible
that mere human eyes cannot see.
