Power in your name

by Monday, March 29, 2010

A thought just flowed from my mind:

O sovereign Lord,
From the beginning you created all things at your command.
From the creation of day to the creation of man,
All these I see at present and will have faith to believe that you are my creator.
With just a sentence, in your name,
All things were just right.

O, how much power is there in your name!
From the time you sent your son to earth, till He was glorified and now sits on your throne,
You give us the authority to preach boldly,
Gave others the baptism of your fire and holiness,
Gave others authority to heal.
For all these shall accompany us since we are believers of Christ.

‘In the name of Jesus.’
O, how powerful is your name.
For healing and rebuking the evil spirits,
I am convinced now,
That there is power in your name.
This power, from heaven above,
Shaking the heavens and the Earth,
People will start trembling at your name.
For there is power in your name!

‘O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!’
Psalms 8:1

Pray for the persecuted

by Saturday, March 27, 2010

'Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.'
Matthew 5: 11-12

'No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves us.
Romans 8:37

'So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful creator and continue to do good.'
1 Peter 4:19

The end times

by Thursday, March 25, 2010

'Woe to you who long for the day of the Lord! Why do you long for the day of the Lord? That day will be darkness, not light.'
Amos 5:18-19

As the verse suggested,do not live in longing for judgement. But live for your generation. Of course, being conscious that the day of the Lord is coming.

Do not be alarmed when the day of the Lord comes. At that time the Son of Man will come in a cloud with great glory and power (Luke 21:27). Scences of people shouting away in different languages, fearing of the non- believers, even the unware party. These people will start running in distress, having no head of direction.

But as for us believers, who are aware of the day, start to praise God, for our reward is drawing near. Start shouting:
'Hallelujah! our Lord has come to redeem us!'

we will start seeing how God is going to end His creation.

'No one knows the day or the hour.'
Mark 13:32

Therefore, live as though everyday is going to be your last, trying your very best to bring people back to Christ.

His mercy is boundless

by Tuesday, March 16, 2010

‘Let the wicked forsake his ways and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.’
Isaiah 55:7

No matter how much sin we have committed in the past, all the unworthiness, let it all be cast aside by what God said to us, that He will have mercy on us. Maybe our past is disgraceful, but remembers that we have forsaken our ways and evil thoughts, and turned to the Lord for our righteous ways. No human mind can comprehend of how much His mercy and forgiveness to us are, as His love is boundless, unlimited always.

Right now, let our ways be favorable to our Lord’s eyes, making Him pleased with our ways. Even if you are not a Christian and are reading this now, I tell you right now, to give this chance to the Lord, for He wants to receive you. What you have to do is to get your hearts opened and see His wonders worked in you. Perhaps the reason you do not want to accept now is because you do not know what changes you will really go through. If you do not even want to give this a try, how do you know what God is going to do inside you?

As for all Christians trying to get your friends and relatives know of this salvation, I hope you will get strength from knowing that our God will never forsake us. Just as we see this urgency to save our friends from that torturous pit, we have to firstly be a light that lives out the testimony of God. Only then will our friends’ hearts be opened because of the things we’d done.

Always remember that God’s mercy is there for us. It’s all because of Him that we started living the way that pleases Him. Just like how much mercy and love He has showered upon us, we will start feeling the change of our attitude towards our friends because of the testimony we are imitating, that is Jesus Christ our Lord.

See the light after darkness

by Wednesday, March 10, 2010

I think most of us, Christians, before we had God in our life; we lived in darkness because we did not know what salvation was. Maybe sometimes we did not feel loved or we did not know what our purpose in life was.

After we became Christians and we received God’s love upon our life, didn’t our life turn to life? I believed most of us would want our friends to receive the same light that we had. But most of the time its hard for us let our friends know about this salvation because of fear.

What God told to us was this:
‘For you were once in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.’
Ephesians 5:33

Live, then, as the way God wants us to live in. many darkness parts of your life can be through the test of faith. Maybe sometimes when we don’t pass the test of faith we may feel like giving up on God. I was once like that. But God used someone to give me encouragement with this sentence: you will see a light after a tunnel. This made me feel that I should not give up on Him and especially my friends.

Maybe we feel that the darkest parts of our life are too hard to bear. I hope that you will have comfort and not give up of the knowledge you are receiving now, that God is assuring you: never will I live you, never will I forsake you.

This is the same concept where you want to switch on the room of your light. There will always be light after darkness. Relate this theory to your darkest parts of your life and I pray that you will start gaining strength that a light will always the reward you receive.

Lets all rejoice in the Lord always (Philippians 4:4). For His light is always leading us, till eternity.....

Its all because of you

by Wednesday, March 10, 2010

My life, once was dark
Once was shattered
With no dreams and no victory

I can't see what my day brings tommorow
I don't know what my life was for

He took me by His gentle hands
Give me all my will to live
I know I am living for you now
You are living right beside me
In your presence I am free
I love you all of my days

You give me youer mercy
You give me your hope
You give me everything i need to live
You give me your healing
You give me your love
You turn my darkness into light
O Lord, its all because of you
O Lord, its all because of you

Spirit of God rests in me
You give me everything
I am who I am today
Because of you

You are

by Wednesday, March 10, 2010

You set me free
You pick me up from my sin
My soul waits upon you
Jesus how I love you, Lord

You grant me salvation
I know you died for my sin
You died for me
Oh, how mighty is your love

You are worthy, O Lord
You are holy, O God
let us sing loud your praises
You are worthy
You are holy
Let all nations declare your holiness

Jesus sit on my throne
Of my heart, my soul, my mind
Take control of my life
Let your presence be in me
