A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outwardly and physical.
A person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the spirit, not by written code.
Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God. Romans 2:28-29
This means then that, someone, who’s heart has been circumcised, I mean, who’s heart and mind has been transformed, renewed, and sanctified, by The Spirit, receives praise from God, not from other people!
No wonder I hear God praising me all the time! And you too!
I hear God say you are set apart- Romans 1:1
He says you are a chosen vessel – John 15:19
You are called to belong to Christ- Romans 1:6
You are loved by God and called to be his holy people – Romans 1:7
You are a chosen person, a royal, priest, a holy nation, God’s special possession – 1 Peter 2:9
You are to declare the praises of God who has brought you out of darkness (The ignorance of your true identity, image, and persona) into his wonderful light!
Oh My! How He has transformed you, ripping off the veil that has shrouded your mind, and silenced the strange voices speaking against you!
Thanks be unto the Lord friends! Great and awesome things He has done!
“For He has done great things
He has done wonderful things
Shout it loud His name is exalted
Sing unto the Lord oh my soul
Shout it loud His name is exalted
Sing unto the Lord oh my soul ”
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Why will you not tell me you love me?
Why are you holding back from me?
Can’t you see how deeply I love you?
You have kept me at arms length all these years!
You have been doing all you can to make me change my mind.
It is too late!!!!!
My love!! There is nothing you can do to change my mind about you.
I love you with an everlasting love, don’t you know?
I came because of you. Yes, I did!!
Loving you wasn’t easy darling one!!
Loving you came with a price.
It was a costly price, very costly.
Yet, I was willing to pay!
You were that important and still is.
Absolutely important and cherished.
If I had to do it again, I would for you!
Yes, I would, but there is no need for it anymore.
The price of loving you had to be paid with the very essence of my being love.
My life had to be laid down for you once and for all.
Will you turn aside, glance my way, reach out, to touch me.
See the spot where I was nailed
My life blood gushing out
To cleanse you and make you whole
Feel my side love.
The last drop of blood was for you
It is still available even now
Come to me, let us be one with The Father
I love you
I am loved, imperfection and all
Loved by my maker, the Most High God
If loving Him back is my only achievement in life
I would be content
My only prayer is that God’s love would reflect through me
That another may see Christ in Me, the hope of glory
That I may impact many a soul for my Saviors kingdom
So that when I finally behold His face
I will not be ashamed for failing to impact lives as He created me too.
Those He sent me through and to
My Father and Mother
My brothers and sisters
Husbands and children
Aunties and uncles
Nieces and nephews
Friends and neighbors
Bosses and coworkers
Lovers and haters
Acquaintances, and much more
All those far and near, predestined and planned
Chosen in advance to be touched
Reached through me
Dear Lord, please forgive my lackadaisical
Infuse my being with fervor
Ignite my spirit man
Strengthen me from within
That I may soar on wings like eagles
That I may run and not be weary
Walk and not faint
Until your will, your great pleasure
Is fulfilled in Me
Lord God Almighty, I give you all the glory, honor, and adoration. I am short of words to express what is going on inside of my being right now.
Something is happening to me
Something is happening in me
Something beyond my comprehension is happening
It is beautiful and full of peace, joy, hope!
And some feelings I can’t quite put into words
Oh wow! I can’t believe I am writing this!
You see Friends, I, like some of you and many others likewise, who has merely been existing without knowing the purpose of their existence, living life below full potential, without an inkling of what “Life” is. Life you see is eternal, it is beyond this world that we know of. Life existed even before we were born. We came into being after conception and all it entails, however we existed before that, we just had to wait to come through our parents as ordained of God, the Master planner, scheduler, Master builder of the human race.
Jeremiah 1:5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
As the verse stated, It can be deduced that we existed as a spirit, known by the Father of Spirit, before we were placed in our parents spermatozoa and eggs accompanied by the passion and union that resulted in our conception. We are here to play an important role or roles. We have a destiny to fulfill! A plan to follow!
Be aware that the circumstances of your conception does not determine your purpose in God’s plan for your life, your part in the agenda of heaven. You are here for a grand purpose. Like Perez and Zerah in Genesis 38 and our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38, your conception might not make sense as at the time of your birth. Like David, you might have been that unwanted pregnancy, the last born of the family, the boy that came when your parents wanted a girl, or the girl born when expectation was for the arrival of a long awaited boy. You are very important in the agenda of heaven! You are loved, cherished and needed for a task that ONLY you can accomplish.
Don’t waste precious moments, times, opportunities and gifts that can be channelled towards the accomplishment of that divine task prepared in advance of your birth! 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.
You have to do yourself a favour to remind yourself constantly of your importance in the agenda of heaven and partner with your maker, the creator of heaven and earth to see you through the fulfillment of this grand plan. Remember, in this world where you and I live in we will have tribulations, things will happen that may make you doubt and wonder why you are here and all sort. John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Knowing the mind of God towards you as His child will help you to be grounded with the assurance that whatever storm you are in shall PASS! Yes, it has not come to stay, just ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to help you to learn on time that which you are expected to learn from each season, so you can grow and move to the next season, fulfilling the plan and purpose for which you came into being.
Friends, please note that you are very important! Actually, God Almighty is counting on you to make impact for the good of ALL in your sphere of influence, starting from your home and every life that comes in contact with you out wards. Sow the seed of goodness, kindness, peace, love, encouragement and compassion.
