Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3 RSV. That particular phrase struck me . Comfort. There are types it seems and they vary in intensity and expression, but God is the one who is so rich to own all of them .
Comfort could come in the form of a hug(the most common image) , in the form of a conversation when someone gets to pour his or her soul out . Comfort is many things to people. It could leave a sweet taste in the mouth from a favorite dish, for those who derive comfort from eatting. I personally find it comforting to talk and not only to talk , but to know that the person I am talking to, understands.Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit. Psalm 145:7
His understanding is beyond comprehension! NLT
His understanding is infinite.KJV
I prefer the word infinite. Meaning it goes into every area of our lives , unendingly. There is always time for God to understand you and me , into deep areas of our personailities. I admire and respect that . There are times when I hear intelligent people speak and I want to say “Holy ” and fall to my knees, when I realize that God made such people and if such people can be great orators, men and women of great understanding and intellect, then how much more God.If you want to be awed, how about you look at yourself. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. I like myself. I love myself. Yes, there was a time I didn’t much and I thought it wrong for people to like themselves, but I do now. Thanks to Joyce’s Meyers preachings . I can say I love who I am becoming . Now, consider all the little things that make you you and realize that you aren’t a combination of yourself. Baically, you are not your own making. All those fancy personality details are things of God. God in you and me who make us us . God is speaking and moving in us, living in us, acting in us, dwelling in our personalities, our humor, our devotion to Him, in our love He dwells, on our lips , He walks with our feet, expresses Himself in us when we smile and the list will go on everlastingly when we get to heaven .
It is my hope to be able to get to the point where we can lose our sleep for God. For us to be able to know that He is the safest place to be tired and rest in . To be able to go without food or clothing for God. People who do this are not made of a different sort of dust . There are made of long hours of prayer and a life of devotion to God. stuff that we can all be made of if we decide to let God take complete control over our lives. This Godwillbeoursatisfaction.
In 1peter 18You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold.
I am sure that list includes diamonds,rubies, sapphires,and so many others. Let that sink in and if it doesn’t, google the images of precious stones and imagine those pictures being multiplied till they filled every corner of the earth and realize that even that would not have been enough to buy you .You and I have been bought with expensive material. With the blood of Jesus .It is something worth losing sleep over. When you feel poor, the blood of Jesus is your wealth.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 1:3Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Learning that every job has its risks. There is a possibility of killing someone, shooting someone, losing and ruining someone’s life in court, destroying equipments, building death causing structures, selling wrong products,losing souls by the way you preach. Everything has the potential to be dangerous. It is a decision to decide how much your job will stress you as an immortal being. How, if at all it is worth having sleepless nights over and worrying about. It is up to us to accept that the worst is we could go to jail, maybe lose all our savings or be killed. What’s the worst that could happen? Those. Bad things might happen at work and during work, and fear can paralyse us. So maybe the best thing is trust in God and depend on Him instead of worrying about what might go wrong. Worry induced diarrhea should not torment our lives. Neither should cancer and all kinds of things. We are a royal priesthood. Either way, if life kills us, we still end up living. We are cool like that, so be encouraged.
Hello wonderful world! I must confess that it’s been long I blogged about something and that’s because am listening to what the spirit is saying. I have my plans but the Lord interrupts, disrupts and repackages my plans if am allowed to say something like that. I still am very passionate about getting closer and deeper in the journey of making Godmysatisfaction and even more pressing in my spirit is the urgency to evangelize. I seem to be hounded by the need to evangelize. Everyday I am obsessed with the idea and I believe God is calling and calling and asking us all collectively to go out and be fishers of men .
The great commision Matthew 28:19-20 NIV
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”. God will be with us even unto the ends of the earth. This is not an option . It is not a request. It is a command.
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives.NIV
The more we go about our Father’s business, the faster we hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible says that we must study the word to show ourselves approved. To go out to witness to people requires a lot. It is a huge responsibility to not only lead people to Christ but to also disciple them, to love them and most importantly be an example. It is very tasking which is why it is so easy to want to run away from this. But I believe truely that no life dedicated to this would be dull. God will surely take you on an adventure in Him if you obey.
I watched this very blessed video and I promise you would be awakened and be more able to trust God who opens the doors before He sends
