Seek God first and He will seek for you

Delight = enjoy God for who He really is, not only for what He can do for us

Really grateful to have this verse reminded to my heart today. How often do we forget to seek God above all, and tend to seek our own desires?
it’s not wrong to want things like a nice house, a soul mate, make ups, any other hobbies, etc… but the word “seek” has more meaning beyond that.
Seek means to really crave for, looking earnestly for

Are we seeking God the way we suppose to?
If not, then repent and come back
Just come back.. for He said : “Return to Me, for I have redeemed you” Isaiah 44:22

If we admit our sins, He is faithful, He will forgive our sins, and PURIFY us from ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

Trust God to give us “a new heart”, a God’s willing heart, not a self willing heart (Ezekiel 36:26)

If we are to obey His Word, then we have this promise:
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matt 6:33)

Prayer:
Lord, forgive our sins as we seek our desires of things and more things, popularity after popularity, greediness after greediness. Cleanse our sins and purify us by Your blood Jesus, give us a God’s willing heart instead of self willing heart. As psalmist said: take me not away from Thy presence oh Lord, take not Thy Holy Spirit from me, restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation, and renew a right spirit within me.
teach us to come back to You, for we know only You can fulfill our deepest desires, not things, not people, not even our dearest ones. And let us experience delight in You, enjoy You for who You are, and have our needs fulfilled, as You give us what You really want us to have. For You are merciful, and good. In Jesus Name, we pray, Amen.

Have a very fulfilled day ^^

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

How could you find TRUE JOY in life?

 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15: 9-11

Be a Faithful Steward

Unless you are faithful in small matters, you wont be faithful in the large ones Luke 16:10

ever thinking why your situations haven’t changed at all. things are all the same, same poverty, still the same problems, needs unfulfilled, empty life?

maybe you still haven’t practiced God’s principle of stewardship.

we all blessed to be a blessings. if we being entrusted of small matters, be that money, family, relationship, whatever they took form, God wants us to be a faithful steward, as a person worthy to be trusted with something.

learn to use your money wisely, not just trying to build your own economy, but learn to think in God’s economy. He will meet your need in abundance (see Matt 6:33; 2 Cor 9:6-9; Phil 4:19)

Be respectful to your parents as God said in Exodus 20:12 

“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”

Learn to honor people God has put them around you (Luke 6:31; Mat 7:12)

“Just as you want others to do for youdo the same for them.”

We can always start from the simplest thing, and be vigilant about it. remember, there are no such “very little” thing, that it will go unnoticed by our EVER LIVING GOD. He even knows how to number our hair strands (Matt 10:28-33).
