Relationships: Made To Love & Be Loved!

Is there anything too difficult for God? Nothing is!!!! I know that with God nothing shall be impossible! This very much I know.

On a walk not too long ago with a friend. We got talking about this and that of relationships, the ups, the downs, and the in between. The conclusion is that the human soul is designed to love and be loved, regardless of the pain, hurt, bliss, and all kind of experiences, disappointing or what not! We all are created to love and be loved!!

When hearts get broken in relationships, we often vow not to be vulnerable again, building walls of defense and putting on armors to shield cupid arrows. However, no matter our stand, we may reject, deny, and abuse love, it always finds us when we least expect it.

Love is an innate desire and need of every soul. No matter how old you are and how young you may be, we all desire love, to love and be loved in return.

However, before I go on about the emotive love, let me tell you about the love of God, the “spiritual” love of the creator for every being created. The love of God for us is unconditional, it has nothing to do with our responses or lack thereof. Our acceptance, rejection, and indifference does not affect God’s love for us. God’s love has no boundaries, it cut across every human divide.

It is this unconditional love that made the Un-created creator to come in human flesh to reconcile us all to the Father. Will you yield your heart to Him today? Oh how God loves us!! It is beyond human comprehension friends. It does not matter what was and is, Christ will ensure your “to be” is beautiful and glorious. Christ Jesus will give you a new beginning and make sure you have eternal life.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

Come To Him Today!

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Friends, being born again does not mean you will have a trouble free life, far from it. As long as we are in this world there will be something that does not quite sit well in our lives, it is the nature of life itself.

However, the Lord Jesus has promised to give you rest, He is offering to get you to a place where your soul find rest – in His word.  Faith in the Lord does more than guarantee you a place in heaven, it gives you peace even in the midst of storm right here, and makes living a life of victory in all spheres possible. Your perspective changes and you begin to see through the eyes of faith.

Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you this season. He is very much ready, willing and able to meet you at the point of your needs. The question is will you ask Him into your life today? There’s no other way in which we can be saved from the evil in this world except by and through Christ Jesus.

Will you accept Jesus into your heart today? Ask Him to reveal Himself to you through His Word. You will begin to be transformed by the renewal of your mind.

Jesus beckons you to come today!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

His Own! Christ!

God is Sovereign! He knows the end from the beginning of all things for He is Alpha and Omega. He already planned out my today, tomorrow and years even before I was conceived in my mothers womb. He knows my frame and formed me for His good pleasure. Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. I am created in Christ Jesus for good works that God in His infinite mercy prepared in advance for me to do.

Had it not been so, I for one would have been sifted out by circumstances, situations and what not. I would not be here today, but for the love of God and His desire to see His purpose fulfilled in me. Christ helped me along the treacherous path I trod on. Thank God I am here and here to do exactly what He wants me to do. Wow! I finally got it! I am not my own, I am His, Christs beloved and so no power can stop me. Not just words brethren! It is a fact! If God be for us, who can be against us? Nobody!

Be encourage friends to seek the face of God for His plan for your life and follow the path, no matter how far gone you’ve been on the other path. Seek to know the Lord Jesus and open up your hearts for His grace to come in.

Repent of all known and unknown sins, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23 Repent and be saved for this world profit nothing and without faith in the Lord Jesus, eternity will elude.

Jesus loves you, but me more! Yep

Grace of God!

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. There is no insignificant sin! Sin is Sin period!

To some friends out there with self righteous attitude towards those that have come to the Lord like the republican did to have their sins washed away. Note that the republican went away with joy while the Pharisee went home void of real joy. I’d rather be like the republican than be a self righteous bigot.

Please note that you are standing in judgement against the Most High God himself. You are making light of the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree. 

We all should be working together with the Holy Spirit in us to win more sinners into the kingdom, not push the saints in house back to the world. The Lord will require of you every single soul you put a stumbling block on their path. Repent! Repent! Repent! The axe is laid already to every tree that is not bearing fruits unto righteousness in Jesus Christ.

Had Ananias been like you and I, I doubt if Saul, turned Paul would have been able to write those books that we all quote and misquote to justify our “self righteous act”. You were a sinner saved by grace don’t stand in place of a judge for you are not qualified to judge.

Lord I come to you with my friends today to ask for forgiveness in Jesus name. Lord have mercy and deliver us from self righteousness. Let your Holy Spirit work in us to will and to act in order for you to fulfill your good pleasure concerning us in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Love you tonnes friends!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Show God!

Love-to-God

Send your love to God as a sweet smelling aroma by loving those God has placed in your path. Lend a helping hand. We can only do this when we accept God’s unconditional love for ourselves first, only then are we able to love others like ourselves.

1 John 2:9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

1 John 4:20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.

Ephesians 4:32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Friends, will you show God some love by been kind and tenderhearted towards someone today. Yes, you’ve praised and worshipped God, yet Christ commands that we love. When we love others we will share our faith with them so they know and share in the unconditional love of Christ so as to be saved from eternal damnation.

Intentional Warfare- Winning The Daily Spiritual Battles

Intentional Fitness CoverIntentional Warfare – Winning the Daily Spiritual Battle by Mary Graziano Scro

This book seems to have been written specifically for me. It couldn’t have come out at a better time, even as the enemy tried in it deceitfulness to keep me from reading it, thereby cheat me out of the inherent message from God, with distraction, busy bee syndrome and sheer laziness.

God has and is using this book by Mary Graziano to realign me with His will to love others as He has loved and still love me, to be sensitive, discerning and alert to the wiles of the enemy and also to reveal unto me my many flaws and His provision for victory/cure.

As Mary wrote “The Lord called us to advance His Kingdom here on the earth and to make Him known to those who desperately need Him. We can’t do that if we are uninformed, if in our ignorance we hurt those we are called to love. We also can’t give what we haven’t received and fully accepted—if we aren’t filled with God’s love and secure in our relationship with Him, it’s impossible for us to love others with His love.”

In my walk so far, I realized that it is what you have that you can actually give, although you can refuse to give, however if you do not have, no matter how hard you try you will not be able to give to others. Love is a free gift from God that everyone has, both saved and unsaved soul. As believers we have been commissioned to go out into the nations and tell the unsaved that God loves them – because they are ignorant of God’s divine love for them. We then have to be secured in our love from God to be able to love others unconditionally, without reservation.

Mary’s use of her personal encounter with God by the Holy Spirit guides the reader into reflecting, giving us more understanding of how we perceive occurrences in our daily encounters. We often judge others by their actions and judge ourselves by our intention and react without understanding of the force behind those actions leading to frictions in our relationships. We come back after the steam has abated but often some relationships have been damaged beyond reason, repairable though through overhaul which is only by grace – the force of love.

As a disciple of Christ we realize quickly enough and tries to salvage the relationships, however, as Mary stated “Sadly, in some relationships, no matter what you do, the other person refuses to listen. But this does not negate our responsibility to love and pray for those God places in our path, until He says to stop. There are times to persevere and times to walk away (shake the dust off your feet). Unless we’re aware of the enemy’s tactics, we’ll miss God’s heart and intentions for others. You are only responsible for your own actions, not for anyone else’s actions. Resolve to walk in love, aware that you have an enemy; and it’s not people or God. Be secure in God’s provision to defeat the real enemy through you when you keep His two greatest commandments and do things His way. Then we can, indeed, accomplish God’s goal in our daily battles: to bring His Kingdom to earth and love people into it”.

Trusting God is critical to victorious living. In our daily walk we need to be aware that the Lord is always with us and lean on Him to lead us aright. We are never to run but face our enemy – the devil for our victory is guaranteed. We are urged to be mindful of our own actions, words, and reaction to others and also to gauge our obedience to the will of God.

This is an excellent book, a must read for every believer with the desire to grow in love towards others in other to propagate the gospel of peace, love and grace – Salvation to the lost.
