Kingdom rule: Curses will turn into blessings

http://www.pixabay.com

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.

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.

Oasis of my life.

http://www.pixabay.com

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

http://www.pixabay.com

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

I will answer you before you call.

http://www.pixabay.com

Is there anyone who can hear you? Yeah, we often feel unheard. Everyone seems to be so busy that they don’t have any time for us.

Maybe I need to raise my voice so that I heard. But, this might cause them to think that I am a crazy man!

Isaiah 65:24 TPT
Before they even call out to me, I will answer them; before they’ve finished telling me what they need, I’ll have already heard.

Today’s scripture reading is a great encouragement. It reveals God’s omniscient nature. He knows everything.

God has promised that He will answer our prayers before we pray. He will hear our prayers before we finish praying. Can you comprehend the depth of this spiritual truth?

Dear friend, what are you stressed about? Don’t worry. God is able to answer you before you call. He is able to hear before you finish praying.

Do you believe?

God bless you.

StopπŸ›‘ attacks on doctors πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ

The wise decision

http://www.pixabay.com

Life is a sum total of all the decisions we make everyday. We decide on everything, right from the time we are awake at the dawn till we go to bed at night.

We usually don’t like anyone else to decide on our behalf. Even, my little daughter doesn’t like it when we try to push our choices.

But when big decisions are to be made we don’t rely on our own opinions. We definitely consult an expert. For example, when someone has to make decisions with regards to treatment of cancer. We go by the decision of doctors. Ultimately, patient makes an informed choice for the treatment.

Proverbs 3:5 TPT
Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.

In today’s scripture the author is encouraging his audience. Here is an emphasis on the need to rely upon God for decisions we make. Certain events are beyond human resources, and God knows the future.

For example, if we ask doctor to give the exact time for cancer patient’s survival? The doctor can give the best estimate for the survival. But, eventually He says that only God knows the exact time.

Dear friend, are you confused about tough decisions. Learn to rely completely upon the Lord. He will guide you in all your decision making. In the end, you will have peace when you make right decisions.

God bless you.

Stop worrying and start believing.

http://www.pixabay.com

Imagine, one day you come home and find your child sitting in a corner, anxious and worried. The child is overwhelming worried about the future. What would be your reaction?

If you ask me, I would break into tears. I would give a big hug to my child and give her reassurance. I would encourage my child not to worry.

If you do a deep introspection, you will discover that we also harbour lots of worries and anxieties. If we were allowed, we would have gone into our closet and cried out loud.

1 Peter 5:7 TPT
Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.

Today’s scripture comes as a rescue operation. God as a father has sent this message of reassurance for you.

He is inviting you to pour each and every anxiety and worry on Him. He is like the great shock absorber. Even the strongest jerk won’t affect Him. Similarly, even biggest problem doesn’t surprise Him.

God is desirous that we should live a carefree life like Him. God takes care of entire universe yet without a trace of worry. He has solutions for each problem. He tenderly cares for you. He has solutions for your problems too.

In fact, He knows the answer before problem crops. Dear friend, what is your biggest worry for today? Listen to me, just cast it at the feet of the Lord. I am doing same for my worries. And, you will experience a great change.

God bless you.

Hide and seek

http://www.pixabay.com

Did you ever played “Hide and seek.?” It’s my daughter’s favourite game. She is very happy to play this game with me. She is extremely excited when I can’t find her. She is sad if I find her too quickly.

She is very happy to discover my hiding place. She is extremely sad and afraid if she can’t find me. Loosing me is her dreaded nightmare. Even for me, staying away from my daughter is the most fearful thought.

Jeremiah 29:13 NASBS
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

In today’s scripture quote we read God talking with his people. He was was sort of hidden from his own because of their disobedience. His people were also kind of upset with their God for not answering their prayers.

God says to his own that ultimately one day you will return to me. You will seek me from your heart and at that point you will find me.

Dear friend, what is bothering you at this moment? Speak it out to the the Lord, may be he will hear you if you seek his intervention from your heart.

A selfless prayer

http://www.pixabay.com

I am disgusted with my selfishness. Selfishness to certain extent is necessary. I find an obsession to fulfill my own needs. Day and night I am only concerned about my family’s needs.

Often, we are preoccupied with self and own families. This causes us to forget outside world. This is so true with praying.

As a child I was taught to pray for blessings. I prayed thousand times, “God to bless me and my family.” God blessed me much more than I deserve.

And, even today I am asking for more blessings. I hardly prayed for others. During my prayer time, it appeared as though the world seem to have disappeared. This is selfish prayer.

1 Timothy 2:1 KJVS
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.

In today’s scripture reading Paul encouraged young Timothy to pray. He distinguished various kinds of prayers. In the end it says to pray for “All men.” This is a universal prayer for all.

I need to learn to pray for everyone, regardless of their religious affiliation, caste, creed, profesion, colour, or whatever.

Today I pray for God’s choicest blessings upon you my dear friend. May the God of peace shine his face on you and fill you with peace.

Spiritual enlightenment

http://www.pixabay.com

Human vision is less adapted to darkness. In simple words, we are almost blind in the darkness.

This isn’t true about the animals. For them night is bright but with little less light. They can see everything so clearly. Animals can kill a prey without any problems during the night.

To overcome this problem, we have devised lamps. A little light makes everything visible to human eyes.

Psalm 119:105 KJVS
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Today’s scripture speaks about lamp and path. It’s an allegory to spiritual dimension. A physical lamp lightens a pathway in darkness.

Similarly the words of God enlightens us to walk a spiritual path in a world full of spiritual darkness. We need God’s words to overcome spiritual ignorance prevalent in human heart.

May the Good Lord shine forth the spiritual torch light of enlightenment throughout your life.

With lots of blessings.

A great reason for rejoicing

http://www.pixabay.com

Most people don’t believe in evil spirits. It’s difficult to believe that they exist as they aren’t visible to human eyes.

Jesus Christ authorised his disciples to cast away evil spirits from the possessed. The disciples were excited with their authority over these spirits.

Luke 10:20 NASBS
Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.”

Jesus Christ instantly corrected them by reminding about the greatest reason for rejoicing. He said that authority over the evil spirits is not the ultimate thing.

The greatest reason for you to rejoice is that your names are registered in the books of heaven. This doesn’t sound realistic to many, however to the person who has faith, it means a lot.

May the good Lord fill your day with great rejoicing.

Incomparable-Omniscient

http://www.pixabay.com

No one in this world knows everything. I would love to know everything! That’s the great task of scientific researchers. They are always on quest of discoveries.

Predicting future isn’t possible with human intelligence. We can speculate many things, but we can’t be sure of it.

I admire astrophysicist, they are capable to predict eclipses, comets visits, etc. But, we aren’t sure of the exact events in the future.

Isaiah 46:10 TPT
I declare from the beginning how it will end and foretell from the start what has not yet happened. I decree that my purpose will stand, and I will fulfill my every plan.

Today’s scripture reading is extracted from the book of Isaiah. These words doesn’t apply to Isaiah the prophet. He wasn’t omniscient by any chance. He was a common man like us.

These words are most aptly apply to eternal God. Only God knows the end before the beginning. He can predict future accurately before the events unfold.

No one can alter God’s plans. This is the amazing supernatural intelligence of God.

Preach in full expression.

http://www.pixabay.com

Do you enjoy preaching? I relish it, when it comes straight from the preachers heart to my heart.

When it originates from preachers mind then it becomes boring. If preaching isn’t handled well, it puts me off to sleep.

2 Timothy 4:2 TPT
proclaim the Word of God and stand upon it no matter what! Rise to the occasion and preach when it is convenient and when it is not. Preach in the full expression of the Holy Spirit-with wisdom and patience as you instruct and teach the people.

Today’s scripture quote is addressed to the preachers community. Paul the apostle gave these guidelines to the younger Preacher, Mr Timothy.

Timothy is instructed to preach in season and out of season. To depend upon the provisions of the Holy Spirit. Give the whole council of God with patience. To be the teacher of God’s precious words.

May the good Lord bless and keep you.

😊

He is my everything!

We truly realise the importance of our dear ones once they are gone. We took them for granted when they were around. Once they are no more, we miss them so much.

Can anyone replace our lost family members. No one. No other human being can provide same affection of the lost family members.

Psalm 68:5 TPT
To the fatherless he is a father. To the widow he is a champion friend. To the lonely he gives a family. To the prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy. This is our Holy God in his Holy Place!

Today’s scripture reading provides great words of encouragement. The Psalmist understood that God is the only one who can provide affections of father, friend, and family.

Dear friend, whom are you missing today? The Lord understands your feelings. He wants to meet your deepest needs.

May the God of glory be with you and your family.

With love. πŸ₯°

The lesser known way of life

Each one of us have our own way of life. There are as many ways to live as many people around the world.

Each one’s way of life is unique. Each life has something special to offer and teach. We all need each other and that’s why we are hanging around.

1 John 4:11 TPT
Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!

Today’s scripture challenges us to adopt a higher way of life. Living our own way is much easier. The way of life described here is well known to our ancestors. They could love their own and strangers with equal intensity.

Now days loving others isn’t easy. It is becoming more difficult. Loving strangers could land anyone in danger.

However, the Lord expects us to overcome our skepticism and love genuinely.

May the Lord help us to love the way he loved us. He loved us tremendously and unconditionally. No love can match his love.

God bless you.

With lots of love.πŸ₯°

Come on! Let’s sing.

Psalm 95:1 TPT
Come on, everyone! Let’s sing for joy to the Lord! Let’s shout our loudest praises to our God who saved us!

Are you a singer by any chance?πŸ€” I am not a singer, for sure.😊 But everyone is definitely a bathroom singer.πŸ˜€

When do you sing a song? We usually sing songs when we are in good moods. Perhaps, when we are in a relaxed atmosphere!

It’s very difficult to sing when we are sad. It’s very difficult to sing, when we feel like a looser. It’s impossible to sing when, we loose our loved ones.

Today’s scripture reading is encouraging everyone. It’s giving us an open invitation to sing. It’s actually a call to sing for a supernatural being.

It’s an exhortation to sing a song of praise. It’s a common practice in all faiths to sing some spiritual and praise songs. It uplifts the spirit of the worshipper.

Try signing praise songs when you are sad and low. I believe that this exercise will definitely bring joy to your wounded heart. This formula works better for me. (I am not boasting).

God bless you.

The greatest but rarest form of love

John 15:13 TPT
For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. And this great love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.

There are different degrees of love. Some love with only words, whereas few love with actions. Mere meaningless words isn’t love.

Today’s scripture reading deals with the greatest and rarest form of love. The greatest form of love is the sacrificial love.

The greatest form of love is to give. A true friend will go through inconveniences to prove his friendship. He will endure loss for his own friends sake.

Today, such friendships are rare phenomenon. People have become selfish. They make friends only for personal gain.

Jesus Christ was a friend of sinners. He demonstrated his love by laying down his life for his friends around the World.

Human dishonour and God’s rewards.

Isaiah 61:7 TPT
Because you received a double dose of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of endless joy and everlasting bliss!

Being insulted is nothing new to us. We may be put to shame. This can happen at any time.

Such incidents cause great pain. We feel heartbroken. What do we do in such situations?

At times we might resort to take revenge by insulting in return. But this is not the final solution.

In today’s scripture quote we read about a great assurance. There’s a mention of a promise. There’s a reward for enduring a difficult situation.

There’s a mention of endless joy and everlasting bliss. God will bless you with indestructible joy and peace.

My faithlessness and God’s faithfulness.

2 Timothy 2:13 TPT
But even if we are faithless, he will still be full of faith, for he never wavers in his faithfulness to us!

I have been faithless on many occasions. I thought that my faithfulness will make God unfaithful to me. But, it never happened like that.

Now I understand that God never works like humans. His ways are totally different.

Today’s scripture reading explains that even if I fall short of my faith, God doesn’t loose his faithfulness. He is always faithful.

Whatever God has promised he will fulfill. He can’t deny himself. He never changes like seasons. He never goes back on his words. He is same yesterday, today, and forever.

Will you be my guide?

Psalm 31:3 KJVS
For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.

To venture into unknown we need a guide. Without a great guide, we can get lost forever. There will be way to return.

Life is a long journey. There are many twists and turns on the way. There’s always possibility of missing the right direction. Today, we use a GPS for navigation.

Even, GPS navigation is fallible. Personally, couple of times I was led to wrong location while using a GPS device.

In today’s scripture reading, the psalm writer was asking God to be his guide. Psalmist was in the need of a guide to lead him in the right direction.

Technically, God created the whole world. He is the best guide you can ever receive. He doesn’t need human GPS. He can never get lost or tired.

Go ahead and ask him to be your guide. He is able to lead you through all the challenges you are going to face today.

What’s the size of your faith?

Matthew 17:20 TPT
He told them, “It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do!

Does faith have size? Yeah, the scripture says so. People have faith of different sizes. Some have little faith, whereas some have lot of faith.

Today’s scripture quote unleashes the power of God when we have faith of mustard seed size. A tiny little faith can make God move mountains.

Imagine, what would happen if we trust God with faith of big size. Is your growing or waning?

May the Lord increase your faith on daily basis to overcome every challenge that appears like a big mountain.

Remember his promise. He is saying that he will move the mountains if you trust him that he can do it!

The Resurrection Sunday

http://www.pixabay.com

Matthew 28:6 KJVS
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Today is the day remembered as the Resurrection Sunday. Most people celebrate it as easter. I prefer Resurrection Sunday.

Jesus after His horrific death was buried. On following Sunday morning He wasn’t found in the place of His burial.

The Angel proclaimed that He rose from death. Death was defeated. He truly died but the grave couldn’t hold him back.

As a God, He had full power to defeat death. The resurrection from the dead is the essence of Christianity.

I wish everyone who celebrates a Blessed Resurrection Sunday.

God bless you for passing by.

The Good Friday.

Good Friday is observed as the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The death on the cross was the cruellest and barbaric capital punishment. This kind of death was reserved for most notorious criminals. However, when the governor Pilate examined Jesus Christ for the accusations against Him. He found Jesus Christ innocent. Then why did Jesus Christ was crucified?

The answer was that He died for me and you. He died a substitutionary death. This death saved us. Whoever believes in this substitutionary death will be saved from the penalty of Sin.

This is the good news which converted the horrific Friday into a Good Friday.

John 3:16 TPT

For this is how much God loved the world he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.

I would love to hear from you. Please post a comment.

Learning Christ

The scripture:

Ephesians 4:20 NKJV
But you have not so learned Christ, ……

The meaning:

Paul was contrasting between the different lifestyles. The lifestyle of a disciple of Christ has to be different. It can’t be contrary to the teachings of Christ.

Application:

The true disciple of Jesus must examine his life in light of the teachings of Christ. Paul reminded his audience that our behaviour must be consistent with the teachings of Christ as written in the Holy Bible.

Health tip #2 : Sneeze

A sneeze produces a cloud of water droplets. This cloud is made up of approximately 3000 microdroplets. These can spread put 6 feet away. When these droplets dry, it settles down as dust. This dust becomes airborne during floor sweep. This is most commonly possible in hospital settings. This is best avoided by wet mopping. An innocent sneeze is a potential channel of disease transmission.

Blogging tip # 9: Paragraph

Image credit rawpixel @ pixabay.com

Usually, 100-200 words make a paragraph. Well, this rule can be overruled. Short paragraphs attract more readers. Typically paragraph deals with a single idea. It begins with an introductory sentence and followed by details.

For example.

Matthew 6:14-15 TPT

“And when you pray, make sure you forgive the faults of others so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you. [15] But if you withhold forgiveness from others, your Father withholds forgiveness from you.”

The dictionary meaning of joy is great happiness. Actually, happiness depends on what happens. Joy is dependent on real facts. Belongingness produces real joy.

Health tip #1: Cough etiquette

Coughing indiscriminately can spread infectious organisms. Any person suffering from cough should hold a handkerchief while coughing. The best option is to provide a mask to the person suffering from the cough.

The coughed out material should be disposed off hygienically. This etiquette will prevent the spread of infections of the respiratory tract. For example, influenza.

Being content is valued quality. Being content doesn’t mean you possess everything. It simply means that lack of something doesn’t bother you.

Inspirational Bible quote:

Philippians 4:11-12 NKJV

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

My comment:

Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ. He learned how to be content when he has or does not have material things. Jesus Christ taught him this great lesson.

Three women are playing important role in shaping my life. I can’t imagine my life without them. My mom gave me birth and I became a son. My wife gracefully agreed to marry me and I became a husband. My wife gave birth to our daughter. My daughter makes me a proud father.
