Is anything wrong with human heart?

Human heart is the most important organ and without it we can’t survive.

The quick facts about the heart will help you to appreciate our hearts. The size of a human heart is as large as a fist. โœŠ It weighs approximately between 230-340 grams. It beats 100000 times a day.

Adult heart beats at 60-80 beats per minute. Newborn’s heart beats between 70-190 beats per minute. Heart pumps 5.7 litres of blood throughout the body. Source Heart disease is the number 1 killer around the world. (WHO)

Similarly we have another invisible heart. That’s the seat of our emotions. We think with our minds but act according to our hearts. We hear the frequent phrase, “listen to your heart.” This heart is actually our own inner voice.

Genesis 6:5 NASBS
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

God can see this invisible heart with his invisible eyes. God can read our thoughts and intentions of our hearts loudly before we utter or act upon them. God can search hearts.

Matthew 15:19 NASBS
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.

Our hearts can be filled with these things. God doesn’t want these things in our hearts. He wants to cleanse our hearts.

Ezekiel 36:26 NASBS
Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

God wants to change our hearts. He wants to remove the hardness and give us a sensible and responsible new heart. A Heart that will respond to God.

Jesus’s heart was rent to bring healing to our troubled hearts. May the Lord help us to bring the desired changes to our hearts. Make us people after his own heart.

1 Samuel 13:14 NASBS
The LORD has sought out for Himself a man after His own heart,

Be blessed.

What can escalate arguments?

Why am I not able to get over arguments? How can I deescalate arguments?

These are the most important questions for which we need answers. Have you ever faced arguments? How did you manage the arguing people? Please share your experiences.

Yes, we all get into arguments at different times with different people. We can’t always get away with arguments. How do we deal with it?

Proverbs 15:1 TPT
Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?

I have been guilty of using sharp words when I am angry. Whenever we are angry and irritated, we tend to utter very sharp words with intention to prove our point.

When the opposite person is equally angry then that person looses his ability to understand any clarifications given. The best policy is to cool down yourself.

Allow that person to went out all anger. Wait for him to cool down. Don’t utter anything. Maintain your calm pose. You will soon realise that that person will return back to ask pardon.

Dear friend, are you one of those who like to use sharp words? Please learn from my mistakes. Please be careful with the choice of your words. Use gentle words and you will be able to kill the argument and not the arguer.

Be blessed.

Hey Paul, what’s your denomination? ๐Ÿค”

Image courtesy http://www.pixabay.com

Before I came into faith I knew only one meaning of “the denomination.” The currency denomination. Then gradually I learnt that there are thousands of religious denominations.

Denominations exist in most of the religions of the world. I was wondering about the total number of denominations exist in Christendom, and boy it’s a staggering number.

I have noticed that people have strong sentiments associated with their own denomination. I was raised in a Bible believing denomination.

Very soon I realised that there is some disliking among the members of different denomination. I was trained to win arguments with a member of another denomination.

Gradually I understood that this is a greatest folly that I followed for a long time. I began to mingle with other denominations. I could relate to them, although we disagreed about some minor issues.

Today I feel pity on some people who are trained to boast about their denomination. I am equally guilty of being proud of my own denomination.

As I was thinking about all this and suddenly a thought flashed through my mind! What was the denomination of apostle Paul? I searched for the answer. Here it is!๐Ÿ‘‡

Philippians 3:5 KJVS
Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

Before trusting Jesus, Paul was a devout Jew, and was an elite member of a demonstration of Jews called as “Pharisee.”

Once he trusted Jesus in a miraculous way, he forsook that denomination. In fact he was excommunicated from his denomination. He had to fight the various wrong teachings prevalent in the first century church.

Galatians 6:14 NASBS
But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Paul was a non-denominational apostle, he never boasted about his own denomination or achievements. He learnt to boast only in the “cross” of Jesus Christ. It’s the place of greatest victory for any person who believes.

Dear friend, I have a question for you! Which denomination did Jesus Christ founded? Please give your feedback.

Please share your thoughts. Push like if you agree. You can give your negative comments as well. Please share it if you think it’s worthwhile.

Be blessed.

Have you heard of spiritual freedom?

We (Indians) celebrated our independence day on 15th August. It’s a great reminder of the end of British Raj (foreign rule). It marked the beginning of an independent sovereign India (Bharat). Our freedom fighters achieved this freedom through great non-violent struggle.

It’s a day to salute our freedom fighters. It’s a day to remember their great sacrifices. It’s a day of celebration of our freedom. It’s my favourite holiday.

Today, we are free to travel anywhere and everywhere without any fear. We are a sovereign nation. The reigns of the country are back with our own political leadership.

John 8:36 TPT
So if the Son sets you free from sin, then become a true son and be unquestionably free!

As I was wondering about the freedom from the slavery of foreign rulers, I remembered this wonderful scripture quote from the Holy Bible.

Jesus spoke about a different kind of freedom. It’s a spiritual freedom. It’s a deliverance from the slavery of sin! Yes, sin is a powerful ruler.

Sinful nature makes a person do evil things. For example, a man full of lust will commit sexual immorality. An angry person will get into arguments.

Jesus spoke about this freedom. He offered it to his own people (Jews) a freedom from sin. Unfortunately, they couldn’t understand this spiritual truth.

They hated Jesus and choose to remain in the slavery of sin. I personally have tasted this spiritual freedom. God convicted me of my sins. He opened my eyes to see my wrongdoings.

One day he helped me to believe in Jesus Christ. I understood the spiritual implications of sacrificial death of Jesus. Today I have complete peace in my heart. Jesus Christ broke the power of sin over my life. Today I am enjoying my country’s independence and spiritual freedom as well.

Be blessed.

Are you shining your light?๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ

Hi dear friend!๐Ÿ‘‹I have a puzzle for you!๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ Please answer my question.๐Ÿ™Can you please identify the insect in the picture?๐ŸงHere you are! ๐Ÿ‘‡

Copyright to me.This is a beautiful insect which appears during the monsoon season in our country. In the dark pitch night, these insects spread across, look like stars in the sky.They have become so less due to rampant urbanization and we don’t see them so frequently. I saw one some days ago. I was thrilled to see that insect. It was lonely.When I was a little boy, I used to catch them. Once, I thought that I would have that insect as my pet. They are very sensitive. It died after few hours of captivity.This insect reminded me of this scripture quote!๐Ÿ‘‡

Matthew 5:16 KJVS
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Jesus Christ commanded his own disciples to shine the light they had received. The light he referred was to the spiritual truth which was imparted to them by their faith in Jesus.Dear friend, how are you shining your light? Is it shining in such a way that people are able to see goodness of God in you? Or are they sad to see all darkness?We are called to be the light of the world. Ask Jesus Christ, the light of the world to supply his oil to keep you burning as a lamp.Be blessed.โœ‹Shalom ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธLike, share, and comment.

What happens when “Go” is joined to “disable”?

https://www.attitudeisaltitude.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Life-Without-Limits-HC.jpg

I was listening to Nick Vujicic. He is a dynamic person. He is a very popular motivational speaker. He is invited all over the world. Thousands have heard him speak and have received great inspiration.

He was born with severe disability. He has no hands and very small size legs. He even thought of ending his own life at the age of ten. He found a new life and a great purpose when he learnt about Jesus.

He asked God to give him a miracle. He asked God to give him arms and legs. He got discouraged because when he didn’t get answer to his prayer. God showed him that when you don’t get a miracle God can make you a miracle for someone else.

Today millions of people are touched by Nick and his ministry. He has a ministry called life without limbs. He realised one thing right from the beginning that when you put “go” in front of “disable”, it becomes “God is able.” Today God has blessed Nick. He is making great use of Nick to touch thousands of people.

Dear friend, you might be someone who need to add “Go” to your “disability.” It will make your disability into “God is ability.” Trust him and he will make you a blessing to others.

Be blessed.
