A Warrior BRIDE

Joel 2:4-12

A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [the ravages of the devouring hordes].

4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses and horsemen, so do they run.

5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains they leap—like the noise of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a mighty people set in battle array.

6 Before them the peoples are in anguish; all faces become pale.

7 They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war. They march each one [straight ahead] on his ways, and they do not break their ranks.

8 Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk every one in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons, yet they are not wounded and do not change their course.

9 They leap upon the city; they run upon the wall; they climb up on and into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief.

10 The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining.

11 And the Lord utters His voice before His army, for His host is very great, and [they are] strong andpowerful who execute [God’s] word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible, and who can endure it?

12 Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].

Run like a horse

Walk with burning passion

Infiltrate every strongholds

Unstoppable generation

to the peak of our destiny

Finish Strong

The power behind the word ALL

This small word “ALL” can be easy enough to be forgotten, yet hold such a wondrous strength within itself in meaning. The word “ALL” changes everything when you put it in its proper place in a sentence.

Romans 11:36

36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).

Eph 4:6 (NIV)

one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

1 Pet 5:7 (AMP)

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you.

1 Cor 10:31 (NIV)

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Do you see it (All)? Don’t us tend to overlook this powerful word?

He knows ALL things, He has ALL powers, He is the Creator of ALL, He is the Ruler of ALL, He is King over ALL, He is OVER ALL, THROUGH ALL and IN ALL!

He knows ALL your weakness, He understands ALL your fear, anxieties, whatever you can mention, He holds ALL answer to your questions, prayers, anything. He loves you with ALL the love you long for….. this can goes on and on  and on (and I think ALL has no limitation, or has it? the limit is…. ALL there is)

and only Him can fulfill ALL your needs! yes He may do that with people, yes He may reach you through your loved ones, yes He might have approached you with His blessings, but the bottomline is HE works THROUGH ALL of it.

I once read a wonderful statement, and I might have missed it unless I took some time to ponder its meaning.

It sounds like this:

“Give God your ALL, and let HIM be your ALL in ALL”

let the very dear one who reads this post, also ponder its meaning in your own life!

How do you set your priority? (part 1)

Priority is an easy thing to say, simple enough, yet to apply the principle to our life can be a great deal, but it also can save us a lot of time, energy etc. In short, it’s all worth it!

I once have been told that we should set our priority, or else the world will define it for us, which is what we avoid to be, right?

first thing first, I know it’s sound so cliche but, GOD should be our first and foremost priority.

Collosians 1:18 told us

“that in all things He may have the preeminence.”

Matthew 6:33

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Ecclesiates 3:11

He hath made everything beautiful in its time: also he hath set eternity in their heart,

What do we search in life? enjoyment? happiness? pleasure? you name it! all of those can only be found WHOLLY and FULLY in Christ, in God Himself.

Really? Let’s put it this way

When you saw some utensils in the antique shop, and it looked kinda strange and you don’t know what to do with the thing? or what should you do using that thing? Let me ask you something: “who is the first and most important person you would ask?” for me, i would say: “of course its the maker, the creator, he is the most knowledgeable person of the creation” wouldn’t you think so?

and then, how can we,human, a mere creation, look for the meaning of our life, of our existence to somewhere else, beside our Creator?

Eph 1:11-12 said that

11-12 It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

Do you long for having a truly fulfilled life, purposeful life? Do you really thirst for having a secure identity that is not based on what the world say about you?

Then ask your Creator, go run to Him, and not from Him

James 4:8

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”

He longs for you passionately and lovingly

Isaiah 44:22 told us that:

“I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.”

Why should you run from Him any longer? haven’t you been tired of running away? tired of trying to satisfy people who can’t be satisfied? how long have you search and put your identity based on others opinion?

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.” Isa 43:4

You are precious and loved, if Not, why would Jesus chose to die for you on the cross?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

If you feel that right now God is calling you outside your door, don’t be so dull to hear Him, open the door of your heart and answer His call

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Rev 3:20

if you’re willing to come back, you may use this prayer to help you start your relationship with God:

Dear Jesus, I am willing to come back to You, I believe that only in You I can put my trust, in You I found my identity, your precious child. I believe that You have died for my sin, and right now I open the door of my heart to accept You, please come in and be my Lord and Savior. In Your Name Jesus, by whom I am saved, healed and restored. I pray. Amen

If you’re praying this prayer with all your heart, I am glad to tell you: welcome to the family of Christ, you are worthy because Jesus told you so!
