Faith Child – If we could see through His eyes

How many times have we judged from our limited perspectives, looking at outward appearance, looking at men-pleasers or even the stumbling clown?

If we could only see through His eyes we would not have the same reaction as the world but the heavenly reaction.

Lord, please help us to see through Your eyes. Forgive where we have caused hurt, discouragement and pain. Help us to be more like You. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.

SIH’s Think On These Things: Ephesians 6:14b

SIH TOTT ICON“Reflections Of His Grace”

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”

 

 

The Grace Of Preparedness (6:10-20)

 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.   

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

HE LIFTS US UP: BROKEN… with no place to go

When we are broken,
with no place to go.
And we wait and pray,
for God’s face to show.
There is something,
we all need to know… Continue reading

Nuggets – Created by Christ

Created by Christ
“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 3:9)

In the context of this verse, Paul is testifying concerning his divine call to preach the gospel, especially proclaiming God’s great plan to the Gentiles as well as the Jews.

In support of this revolutionary concept, Paul refers to the great fact of creation. All men, and indeed “all things,” had been created by one God. Furthermore, it was by the Lord Jesus Christ that God had created all things. Before the revelation of this mystery, the Gentiles had been “without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). The phrase “without God” (Greek atheos, from which we get the word “atheist”) is used only this once in the New Testament, and it indicates plainly the barrenness of all pagan religions. “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ” (Ephesians 2:13).

No.

For some folks “No” is the single most difficult word to say.

Jesus teaches in Matthew 5:37,

“Let your yes be yes and your no be no.”

We say “yes” easily. Sometimes when we mean to say “no,” we still say “yes”.

For years I kept saying “yes” to folks when I should have been saying “no”. Too many commitments meant too few accomplishments. Over-commitment is an enemy of humility and stewardship. It disrupts fellowship with God.

All those years playing an over-committed, people-pleasing Christian, I feared people would not accept me if I said no. I equated more works with more acceptance from people and more favor from God.

Today, thank God, I am learning what healthy boundaries are and how to set them. And I’m learning that if I say “no” sometimes, the sun will still come up tomorrow.

Praise the Lord testimony – Sir, I believe

Last night, while preparing for my mission trip to Nepal  with the speaker, I heard about the miracles that only God could do in India with the SEED Ministry.

One testimony was of a local  Buddhist driver who was assigned to the ministry team. He drove for the team as they travelled  to and from Siligiri, India.

After two days of listening to the gospel being preached, and witnessing the many miracles that took place at the miracle rallies, he told the speaker on reaching their hotel after service the second  night – “Sir, I have listened, I have watched for two days. I believe.” Straight away the speaker shared the gospel of Jesus Christ  message with him to affirm his desire to know the Lord. He was led in the sinner’s prayer and was jubilantly saved.

Next day, when he arrived to pick them up for that night’s rally, he told the speaker  “Sir, I called my wife who is working as a home assistant  in Singapore and told her that I became a Christian last night. She wants to become a Christian too. Can you please send some one to help her become a Christian and  bring her to church when you return to Singapore?”

The next day he was to send the team to the airport and they were not stopping by Siligiri en route to the airport. He insisted that the speaker must needs go to Siligiri to speak to his boss, a Sikh as he had told his boss that he had become a Christian.  The speaker agreed and the three of them sat in a coffee house for two hours. The Sikh boss  asked endless questions and  soon  they had to leave for the  airport.  The speaker gave him a local contact to ask more questions if he had them. The Sikh however said “Sir, I believe, I want to become a Christian now – tell me how”. And again the preacher shared the gospel of Jesus Christ   and the Sikh became a Christian  by. accepting Him as his personal Savior.

What a testimony of how one miracle was multiplied to three conversions. So as the SEED ministry teams visit there are not only big healing and miracles during the rallies. Jesus is alive and touches  individual lives along the way.  He saves and rescues from the grip of sin and other beliefs.

It reminds me of when Jesus felt He “must needs go through Samaria. “

How many times has the Lord nudged us to people and places we must not miss for Him? Have we been obedient or missed the opportunities of experiencing God?

Faith Child – Precious promises – are you keeping them?

searchWhen the Son of God left heaven’s glory, He promised His Father to give His life a ransom. He fulfilled it.

We have said farewells with promises too -

- to parents – to study hard, and to return with news of good success

- to a dying one – to keep up the good name of the family or to look after a beloved

- to live for Christ in a world darkened by sin

- to be faithful to write ever so often or to call  or to visit a loved one left behind at home or in a retirement or convalescing home.

Have you fulfilled your promises made when it was time for you to go away?

Jesus made a promise when He left for heaven’s glory after the resurrection .

He will keep it

In hope we know.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  John 14:3

Nuggets – A Tree of Life

A Tree of Life
“She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.” (Proverbs 3:18)

The tree of life in the Garden of Eden was a literal tree, whose marvelous fruit apparently had the medicinal ability to retard the aging process indefinitely, even for men and women under God’s curse (Genesis 3:22-24). This amazing tree will be planted again along the streets and rivers of the New Jerusalem (Revelation 22:2-3).

The writer of Proverbs used this tree and its health-giving qualities as a symbol of four attributes of a God-centered, spiritual life which can bring blessing to all those touched by it. First of all, true wisdom is like a tree of life, imparting true happiness to all those partaking of it, then guarding it.
