Hari ini aku recommit my life
dan setelah sekian lama, akhirnya ada lagu yang kutulis lagi
bukan maksud sombong atau mencari prestasi
tapi sungguh Tuhan bicara dari hati ke hati padaku

Finally back

Soo, hi guys

It’s been a while since I post the last in this blog, and I just want to share how much much much I really longs for just simply have a close relationship without thinking about any achievement, any responsibility. Just sit down and enjoy God for who He is, and the realization He brought me because of this…
I’ve been very busy lately, since I went out of home at 6.30 am and go back home (usually) at 6.30 pm, so it literally just 12 hours working time, not mentionsing if I need to do extra work, and spend extra time out of home….. and it drains my passion, my energy.. well it’s just exhausting

But today is the time when I can simply just having my quiet time peacefully, enjoying and savoring the time when I meet my Creator, my Lover, my Father, who always give me the right amount of help, courage, love, patience, any thing you can ever hope for, when you just simply come to have relationship with the Father.

I’ve heard many ppl say that because of their job, they can’t have the quiet time they used to have. maybe they just busy, and the weariness creeps and many worrisome things fulfill their thoughts and they only can spare merely 10 or 15 minutes to see God. and it can’t be a wholesome awesome relationship, instead it’s just out of routine, obligation, or even fear that God will hit them, punish them if they don’t say “hi” to Him.

but what I really realized is, God wants RELATIONSHIP and NOT YOUR ACHIEVEMENT. He died for us even when we don’t know anything about Him, when we are still sinners, when we still have and want our own way… He come for us, and offer us an acceptance that’s not based on what the world value.

we often see God as the world sees us. that He will accept us if we are smart, or if we are talented, we have achieved somthing to GET HIS approval, and so the list goes on.

but He merely want us to respond to Him, He wants us to RECEIVE HIS UNFAILING LOVE. The love that’s never based on our performance, instead it’s based on His character and personality.

He does wants us to success, to become a faithful servant that’s worthy of the trust put in us. Yet He doesn’t want us to do it out of fear, and to GET His approval.

He already approve of us, because when He sees us, He sees JEsus blood that has been poured upon us and cleanse us of all our sins.

and if any of you are in the middle of feeling unworthy because you cannot do things FOR GOD the way you used to be, please do come to Him, He wants YOU, not YOUR WORKS. Just tell Him all your situations, and tell Him about the longing of your heart to be close to Him once again, and ask Him to help you find any possible modifications of your schedule today, just so you can draw close to HIm (James 4:8)… after all He is this world OWNER, therefore why don’t we push more for a relationship with Him, instead of trying to make everything “work” on our own?

Yes we need to do our part, but remember God still has HIS part to do also, and He is GOD
repeat with me please!!!! HE is? G.O.D. final marks
do what you can do and trust God to do what you cannot do

You will fulfill the purpose of your life with His grace, God’s wings will get you to the place you need to go, but it’s not apart from Him, it’s when you face your daily life with Him holding your right hand and give you victory over victory (Isaiah 41:10)

Amen

Hope this blessed and knocked the door of anyone who read this post.
Come back to GOD.

and please go check this video, it will touch and brings back your heart to Him

this is a part of it’s lyrics:

Before the world began,
You were on his mind.
And every tear you cry,
Is precious in his eyes.
Because of his great love,
He gave His only Son.
Everything was done so you would come.

Come to the Father,
though your gift is small.
Broken hearts, broken lives,
He will take them all.
The power of the word,
the power of His blood.
Everything was done so you would come.

Nothing you can do,
Could make Him love you more.
And nothing that you’ve done,
Could make Him close the door.
Because of His great love,
He gave His only Son.
Everything was done so you would come.

How do we love?

1 John 4:16

And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth” 1 John 3:18

how do you show His love from within you today?

Many ways we can show love, and I just want to share so it can bless and give some ideas or insight how we can bless and reach out to someone today.

praying for the loved ones, fulfill their needs, by listening to their story instead of insisting my own belief to them, by correcting them although I know the correction can hurt them, praising their good deeds, cheering them up when they feel down, investing your time for them by chatting, listening, helping, or even cooking for them.

How have you or will you get in the love walk today?

it doesn’t have to be perfect, but as we keep doing our best and keep on loving, the Bible said that God’s love is keep flowing within and through our lives.

God bless^^

Overwhelmed by His love

Hi I just want to share what I got from my quiet time
its simple but “foundation”al, basic truths we need to keep in mind, as we progress in our journey with Him
so have fun reading and have a blessed time
Revelation for today:

1. God loves me unconditionally, and I receive His love
2. Everything that I “do” for Him must not be done by my self, but because of His Spirit
So why would I say, I want to please God? God already accepts and please with me the way I am, because of Jesus. And because of that great love and life He died for, i don’t want to constantly living for my self, no more of that. I’ve died to self and now living for God. And I want to make Him smile because of love, not because of fear of not getting His favor, not getting His blessing. I believe God wants to bless me, yet many times, He cannot bless me becoz of His love for me, He knew that if He bless me with that, i would be ashtray, miserable. Believe that His love for me is making Him not giving the things I want if its just going to do harm at me.
Prayer: Lord I want to please YOU because of love, and I love because YOU first loved me, so I receive Your love and favor, not getting it by works, but receive it by faith, coz without faith its impossible to please You, and keep growing WITH You. Teach me that Your love is perfect for me, and perfect love casts all fear. In Jesus Name. Amen
So its nothing such as ” I’m better than you” attitude, but it’s all because of His grace, and He can do everything with it, I don’t have any right to complain or even jealous, but i need to believe His grace is enough for me, His love for me is great enough to make Him died for me. Remember who you were and who you are in Christ right now, and keep blessing, thanking God for all He has done for you.
Trust His heart
God Bless

Choose Life

The Offer of Life or Death 

deuteronomy 30:11-20

11 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. 12 It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 14 No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.

19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

These verses overtook my heart last night when I was having a quiet time. still wondering about, HOW , i really mean HOW can I live a LIFE JESUS DIED FOR ME? We all know that He wants to give us life, an abundant life till it overflows (John 10:10)

but have you ever questioned, then how can I truly experience it?

first thing first is of course, BELIEVE!

Believe you already have it when you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior

Believe it’s already laid down for you (just for you to take) by Jesus, when He said “it is finished” 

yes He finished pouring His blood for us to give us an abundant life, all we need is just to TAKE it, we need to RECEIVE it, rather than GET it.

receive and get are two different things. to get means you must do something to “get” what you deserve, but to receive, it has something to do with free gift. You simply receive it right? (eph 2:6-8) not by works but by faith

coz without faith it’s impossible to please God, but what about this verse? “faith without works is dead” (James 2:26)

the answer is this: For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Gal 5:6

sooooooooo, what does this connect with what I’m going to share about?

we have to know and BELIEVE that ‘the change” we want to have, “the seed of GOD” is already in us.

it’s NEAR

it’s in OUR MOUTH (so confess what you BELIEVE! start declaring what God said about you and stop judging and saying negative things about you)

and In OUR HEARTS to obey

what a revelation! the change we need to be is in us, already in us because: And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (romans 5:5)

wow, wow, i mean WOOOOWWWWW

i know it’s a process, but my friend, GOD ALREADY KNOWS THAT, and He is basically give us question, but then He tells us the answer itself

okay so here’s the question: what should you choose MY dear child?

and here is the choice:

A. life and prosperity

B. Death and destruction

and after that He told us to CHOOSE LIFE… haha, He is sooooooo goood

can we do that? isnt it too difficult? NO

it’s near you!

believe it, say it out loud, and obey it! it’s already in you!!!

and keep growing with God, coz He knows you, and He will never give up on you! (phil 1:6)

God bless
