Word of the day:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13
You just have to allow God to move in your life. It’s our choice to live a life full of misery just like the rest of the world, or be as free as the bird soaring on the sky. God wants us to live a life to the fullest. This world promises us nothing but chaos, struggles and frustrations. Let’s not rely on this rotten world. Rely on Jesus. He got a lot of packages waiting for you to open – right before your very eyes.
You have to be ready to receive such joy and peace. Trust. Trust Him. Trust God that inspite of circumstances all around you, He is able to bring things according to His plans and purposes for you. You are chosen by God long before ages and hey, there’s always have something in store for you. God, in His fullness, took time shaping you and molding you. He put inside of you the potential to manifest His goodness and glory. True, something’s so exciting in the heavenlies – no pains, no struggles, no failures, no frustrations.. just joy and peace. Now what if such heavenlies be brought down here on earth? Be ready. Fill your heart with trust to our Maker so that when He open up the heavenlies for you to be a channel here on earth, you will not be blinded by its light, rather, you have the capacity to contain such precious gifts, such momentum. You are able to carry the light He entrusted to you. Clear yourself from all the stains of the world, immerse with the Holy Ghost. Fill your heart with gladness and earnest expectations that God is working busily in shaping you to His fullness.
There’s no time for sulking at such a time like this.
Lift up your holy hands before the Lord, saying: “Abba, Father.. I love you.. Reign in my life..” For so many times from the past we surrender, and somehow, sometimes, we tend to go back to our former we. But God did not stop even if you stop growing. He love you so much! Rise up to your feet and display His goodness and lovingkindness among men. It’s up to them whether they believe or not. The point is, you got the eye of God watching dearly on you with satisfaction and you know to yourself that you put smile on God’s face. If you haven’t got that feeling for such a long time, give it a try. You will never know how far God move on you, and ultimately, how you will be moved by God towards His fullness. We just can’t help but overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. When God say “power”, it’s POWER indeed! Fill your heart with hope. There’s hope… embrace it, it’s yours!
Isn’t it fair to give our very best to our Maker?
