God’s Endless Love

The book which has impacted my life so much is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. The manner in which she demonstrated the love of our heavenly Father was so intricately presented that I became so confident that there was nothing I could do that would stop God from loving me.

Even when I fail, I disappoint Him, I abandon my secret place, I apply my own foolish wisdom and fail, I go astray, and ignore His ever available love, God’s love remains the one constant through all seasons of my life. Hallelujah

Now, I am securely grounded in this love that in all devastating experiences I go through, I know that I can always count on Jesus’s love to see me safely to the end.

I will follow Jesus to the end. No turning back.

May God lead people who are struggling to accept love or love themselves to find His unconditional love. Amen

686 Tell Your Story

As we are all different, and so are the stories of our lives. However, we all have the fact about sin and the cross in common, and it is the finished work of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary that gives our lives real meaning. It is imperative that we talk about Christ Jesus with others who do not know Him. There are millions who claim to know Him, and they do from what they see at Christmas and Easter. No real knowledge of who our Saviour is. That is one of the many reasons why we should tell our stories of how we became saved to help others to see the light. Acts 13.47 For this is what the Lord commanded us: I have made you a light for the Gentiles that you may bring salvation to the end of the earth.

Let us find simply ways to include our story in our daily living as we interact with people. The world is dying to hear the truth. If we do not share, how will they get to know? May we be granted the courage to speak about our stories to those who would be helped by them. Shalom

Ephesians 4.32 Help one another and be kind to each other. Forgive one another. Remember that God has forgiven you because of what Christ did. Who is that person that is worth losing your soul for? Go and be reconciled before it is too late for all parties involved. Shalom

685 Pure Heart

Only the blood of Jesus Christ can make a person’s heart pure no matter how much work that person does on their own. It is not impossible to have a pure heart because our heavenly Father specialises in doing just that. Matthew 5.8 blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.

My dear friend, how pure is your heart? How often do you check to ensure that you have a heart that is pure? This is something which we must do regularly. May The Lord help us to keep our hearts pure. Shalom

Try Again

Every one of us has had a go at something which we did not get right or failed woefully at. Failure is not the end. It only becomes the end when a person decides to stop at his or her failure. What is that thing which you did not do very well at? Have you given up, ceased trying or would you have another go if you had the opportunity?

As we go into this week, the intention of this piece is to encourage everybody to have another go? That thing, idea, venture, event, business or activity which may have not gone the way you wanted it to go could be successful with a second trial. Why give up after the first try? Or even the tenth attempt? We get better and more experienced with how to not do something. So, with a few efforts, it is not ideal for anyone to give up. That a person failed at any time is not a tenable excuse to not try again.

Dear friend. You have no idea how the result would turn out. Instead of feeling downcast and frustrated, be reminded that you are still here and you can try again. The circumstance, location, weather, resources may not be the same. But if you are determined to succeed, the point of your failure will not be your closing remarks. Get back up, and get in. Give yourself a chance by trying one more time.

Always have at the back of your mind that the end does not have to be where you failed or did not meet your own expectations. Once you can pick yourself up, that is all you need to win no matter the odds. You are urged to have another go. All people everywhere have equal opportunity to make use of their second chance.

Let me express my gratitude for your time today. You stopped by to hang out with me when you could be anywhere else, and that is great! Thank you so much. I wish you a truly productive week as you try again to give yourself a break.

684 Self-Control

It is important that people have self-control otherwise the world would be disorderly. We see more and more shocking actions and behaviours as many people have decided to ignore or not apply self-control in public places. There is absolutely nothing fancy about lack of self-restraint. In fact, one simply attracts humiliation to themselves. Being able to keep oneself in check is essential hence it is included in the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5.22 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

You are truly mature and have developed your character if you can control yourself in situations where you are expected to blow up. I hope that there will be an increase in people in possess and display self-control as required of them. Shalom

683 Good News

I bring glad tidings this new month to you all. As we see the year grow older, we have to keep sharing the word of God with the world that is lost. This good news of salvation in Christ Jesus can deliver a person who has lost all hope of living. Romans 3.23 says that All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. However, God did not leave mankind in the fallen state. He made the all time remedy that covers all people everywhere on the planet by sending Jesus to die on the cross for us.

This good news is about life in Christ, faith in God and eternal redemption. There is no need to suffer in this world, die and go to hell where the suffering becomes magnified. Receive Jesus Christ into your heart today as you hear or read the good news and be saved. Shalom
