Kingdom rule: Curses will turn into blessings

Insult in any form is always humiliating. What do you do when you are cursed or insulted? You can retaliate by backfiring. Or you decide to walk away because the person is too strong. Or you can choose to bless in return!

1 Peter 4:14 TPT
If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are greatly blessed, because the Spirit of glory and power, who is the Spirit of God, rests upon you.

In today’s reading, Peter reminds about God’s kingdom rules. The world hates being insulted. The kingdom rule says you are blessed when you are insulted for your faith. What! Yes, it’s a fact.

The insults due to faith in Jesus is visible proof that you are anointed by the Spirit of God. It means you are blessed by God to suffer on His behalf.

Dear friend, are you despised because of your faith? Then, don’t be disheartened. It’s the best moment to rejoice. Claim this promise for your life.

Thank you for everything.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 TPT
And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.

It’s quite easy to be thankful when things are going well but, it very difficult to be thankful when things go wrong.

It’s quite natural to feel this way. We don’t expect things to go wrong. But, we know that life is full of uncertainties. One moment may bring happiness, and next moment something bad can happen.

Today’s scripture reading encourages us to have a thankful heart. It lays emphasis on being thankful for everything.

Everything includes all things. It includes good as well as bad things. It means that when things go wrong, don’t lose your thankfulness.

So, be thankful for today and for everything you are going through at this moment. This is the perfect will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

Shalom πŸ•ŠοΈ

Oasis of my life.

Problems seems to haunt us again and again. As we deal with one problem, suddenly the second one pops up. This vicious cycle takes its toll. We begin to show signs and symptoms of fatigued.

What do you do in such situations?

Matthew 11:28 TPT
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.

The above statement was made by Jesus when He was on the earth. He found everyone weary, exhausted, and heavy laden.

He was quite concerned about their situations. It wasn’t so much about their physical loads, it was their mental overload. It was overwhelming them.

He invited them to come to him. He said that He will give them rest. Here is the mention of Oasis. For a person who has been through harsh desert will know the importance of Oasis.

Jesus said that if you come to me by faith then you will have a Oasis kind of refreshment to your soul.

Today Jesus isn’t physically visible to human eyes. Today it’s a great spiritual invitation. As a God, He is everywhere. You need faith to feel His presence.

May Jesus, meet your deepest spiritual needs. May your soul be strengthened again by The Oasis of Jesus.

God bless you.

Like Father, like son/daughter

We all inherit some features from our parents. We can easily identify parents based on the looks of children. The facial or bodily features of children distinctly resembles their parents.

I have inherited my looks from my parents. Some from my father and mother. My voice sounds exactly like my father’s voice. Over phone no one can distinguish between our voices.

Amazingly when my daughter was born, I was so thrilled to see my likeness in her tiny little face. How does all this happens? This is all due to genes. Genes are God’s creation.

Luke 6:36
Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Today’s scripture is encouraging us to be like our Father. Which father? Oh, this doesn’t refer to our Father at home. It refers to our heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father is ocean of mercy. His mercies never go dry. They are renewd every morning. He is merciful to all without any partiality.

He makes His Sun β›… shine on everyone. He causes rainfall in all areas. He takes care of everyone whether they believe or don’t believe in Him.

Dear friend, claim this promise for you today. We have a choice to either imitate our worldly father or heavenly Father. May the almighty God help you to follow Him in all your dealings with others.

God bless you.

Belated Happy Father’s day. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ
