What’s wrong with being a spiritual bankrupt?

In the world there are rich who have huge bank balance and on the other hand there are rich who are bankrupt.

No one likes to be a bankrupt, everyone loves a great bank balance. That’s why we work so hard to increase our bank balance.

God’s kingdom rules always boggles my mind. Read this!

Matthew 5:3 TPT
“What wealth is offered to you when you feel your spiritual poverty! For there is no charge to enter the realm of heaven’s kingdom.

It speaks about the realisation of spiritual poverty. It is as though a person comes to God and expresses his spiritual bankruptcy.

What does this mean to us? It simply means that if you want to experience total bliss, God says to return to him accepting your spiritual bankruptcy. Acknowledge that you need more spiritual wealth.

Accept that you need divine mercy to understand and appreciate spiritual truths. Unless God gives us supernatural revelations we won’t understand his spiritual dimensions.

Therefore, in God’s kingdom a spiritually bankrupt receives spiritual wealth. If, someone fails to feel his own spiritual bankruptcy will miss the spiritual wealth promised by God.

Lets humble ourselves and go to him to fill us with his spiritual wealth and health.

Be blessed.

Happy friendship day!

Friends are very important people in life. Today I received lots of friendship day greetings. I was delighted to see some of these greetings from my good friends with whom I didn’t catch up for very long time.

I was little sad for not being in touch with some very good friends. Some how we moved so far away that we lost touch. I don’t even know where they have settled.

The life has always been surprising to me, I have lost old friends and made new ones.

John 15:15 TPT
I have never called you ‘servants,’ because a master doesn’t confide in his servants, and servants don’t always understand what the master is doing. But I call you my most intimate friends, for I reveal to you everything that I’ve heard from my Father.

Jesus Christ was a great friend for his own disciples. He said that he never treated them like his servants. He said that the servants are unaware of what master is doing, but you are my friends. I have revealed what father is doing.

Dear friend, do you need a great friend for lifetime? Why don’t you consider Jesus. He has been my friend since the day I trusted him. He has never betrayed me.

Be blessed.

Are you afraid?

Fear is something we are born with. We can’t get rid of it completely. It’s a protective mechanism placed within us by the creator God.

Fear is fine when it is reasonable. Fear of unknown is unfounded. Fear is always lurking around in our hearts and minds.

Luke 12:32 NASBS
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.

Disciples of Jesus Christ weren’t free from fear. They were fearful even when Jesus Christ was with them. The most commonest reason for their fear was lack of faith.

Jesus Christ rebuked their unbelief. He always encouraged them to have faith in him and God the Father.

In today’s scripture quote, there’s a wonderful truth unravelled. Heavenly Father has graciously chosen us to have part in the realm of His spiritual kingdom.

Dear friend, listen to me. Your faith can help you to overcome your fears. Jesus Christ is always with you as he was with his disciples. He is not going to leave alone even for 1 millisecond.

Shalom πŸ•ŠοΈ

Be blessed in Jesus name.

What you do when your plans fail?

Image courtesy geralt @ http://www.pixabay.com

Today I had great plans for my day. I was planning to complete some of the very important tasks at my work place.

All my plans for today were completely destroyed by sudden sickness. I couldn’t attend my duties. I had to spend most of my day in bed.

Now I am recuperating. Now, I am ready to go back to my office tomorrow morning and begin my tasks. I just couldn’t help it when I was confined to my sick bed.

Proverbs 19:21 NASBS
Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand.

Today’s scripture quote brought great encouragement to me. It was a frustrating moment when my plans failed.

The best thing about it was, even though my plans failed but God’s plans will surely succeed. God allows sickness in our lives because he wants us to teach some lessons.

I hope that I will understand God’s purposes through this experience.

Be blessed in Jesus name.

What is the secret of fullness of joy?

Image courtesy http://www.pixabay.com

Human joy is never permanent. Our joy depends on our circumstances. Something great happens then we rejoice and next moment our joy is over.

How can we have joy that will never fades? A joy that will never cease. A joy that is full. Is there a place where we can discover such an extraordinary joy.

Sadly, there’s no such place on this earth! Even if it exists then once we reach there, it will be a sad place.

Psalm 16:11 NASBS
You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

In today’s scripture quote, the Psalmist revealed a secret to achieve fullness of joy. He says that in the presence of God exists fullness of joy.

I have personally experienced this fullness of joy when I discovered the love of Christ in my life. It has brought to my heart great joy of knowing that he loves me more than myself.

Dear friend, what’s the secret of your fullness of your joy. Please share it if you feel free.

Be blessed.

Whom are you yoked with?

Image courtesy http://www.pixabay.com

We don’t prefer to be tied to someone else! We rather be totally independent of everyone.

Our children want to be independent of us. They are forever seeking to be free from the rules of right and wrong.

Our society wants to be free from the rules and regulations which curb their freedom.

Our students want to be free from rules that restrict their freedom.

Matthew 11:29-30 KJVS
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Jesus Christ said that in life we have to carry some yoke. You have to join someone. You are not made to live a solitary life.

The rules and regulations are made for our safety. Everyone who follows traffic rules will reach home in one piece, otherwise will reach emergency room with multiple bruises.

Dear friend, Jesus is calling us to have a partnership with him. He is interested in helping you to carry your yoke. He is offering an exchange. He says that lets exchange yokes.

He will help you to carry your yoke with his partnership and in return he is asking for your fellowship and friendship.

His your yoke is convenient, manageable and light. The exact meaning of yoke is his commandments. They are easy to practice if we pair with him.

Dear friend, whatever may be the size of your burden, ask Jesus for help. He is always willing to lighten your load. You will carry forward your yoke with much ease.

Be blessed.

Do you engage in friendly argument?

When was the last time you engaged in discussion with your friends? Friends, are a unique group of people. They can engage in discussion which can go on for many hours!

Friends can also get into arguments! Friends can also get into verbal fights. When I was young boy, I have engaged even in physical fights with my friends.

All these things would never destroy true friendship. These arguments definitely help us to build our capabilities and improve our skills.

Proverbs 27:17 NASBS
Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.

Today’s scripture reading emphasizes same idea. Iron when rubbed against an iron will result in sharpening one another.

In same way, friends can also sharpen each other when they rub each other through healthy discussions and arguments.

John 15:13 NASBS
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

Jesus Christ laid down his life for his disciples. He is a great friend. He can sharpen you. He can change you and make you shine. So go to Jesus Christ and engage in arguments.

Shalom πŸ•ŠοΈ

God bless you.
