LET GOD BE YOUR ARCHITECT

One major advantage that we have with God as our advocate, overseer, leader and anchor in life, is that God already knows the future. In Isaiah 48:3, God provided us with His promise, saying, “I have declared the former things from the beginning; They went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.” It is clear that God proclaims the things that are going to happen ahead of time, and at the appointed time, known to God, the prophecies of God are always fulfilled. Therefore, it is to our benefit to always let God be the one to lead and guide us through life.

Without a doubt, we know that God loves all the people of the world, and God wants to save all the people that will heed to His call for salvation (John 3:16-17). And, God has already shown us His covenant and His laws with the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 4:13). Furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ came down to Earth, and practically showed us God’s love for us, and declared God’s promise for the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-8). And, this promise spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). Therefore, it is undeniably clear that, as God had promised to give us the Holy Spirit, He also fulfilled this promise.

In His lovingkindness and mercy, God has shown us the way to reach Him, Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Meaning that, in order to take the correct path to reach God, we should always follow the Lord Jesus Christ. And, God has promised all of us who believe in Him, in Isaiah 46:4, “Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you.” Therefore, God has promised to be there for us, if we will trust in Him. God is available to be there for us through all the stages of life, and through all the various types of moments in our lives.

In addition, God will not forget us, as He has promised in Isaiah 49:15, saying, “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.” Indeed, God will not forget us, God will be there for us, and God will rejoice with us. God has great plans for us. God has promised in Jeremiah 29:11-13, saying, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” So, God is there for us to bless us, and to bring to pass good and great plans for our lives.

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, you can make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved, or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the salvation of God today, and become a member of God’s family! Make the choice to live a fulfilled life with God! Let God be Architect, to show you His great plans for you, and to help lead and guide you to your destiny. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

THE SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

The Sense of Accomplishment

As one of the gifts from God, the sense of accomplishment is the experience and awareness of joy that is acquired from completing a desired task, goal, or milestone. It is a sense of fulfillment, and it is the heritage of the person’s completed work.

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, there is definitely a great joy in knowing the completed work that the Lord Jesus Christ has already done for all of us! In general, all believers can certainly thank the Lord Jesus Christ for going through with all the sufferings of the cross and bearing all the sins of the world on the cross in order to save us! However, on a more personal level, it is also good to know the grace of God that allows each of us to experience this sense of accomplishment also, when we have completed good work.

Therefore, it is very important to note that, the sense of fulfillment or accomplishment from a completed work is good, and it is a gift from God, as well as, a blessing from God. The bible tells us in Proverbs 31:30-31, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.” So, what a blessing to revere and reverence God, and what a blessing to do good work! And, did you also notice from this bible verse that, even the completed work can generate praise? It is quite encouraging and very rewarding to know the unlimited possibility that God opens up to all people through His grace, when we make the choice to work with God!

God gives everyone who is alive, the opportunity to experience the sense of accomplishment through the completion of the tasks, goals, or milestones, and the purpose given to them by God. In the bible, Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, saying, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” Amen! Praise God!

By the grace of God, everyone is invited to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and to become saved and sanctified! God gives everyone the chance to work with Him. Once you have been saved by the Lord Jesus Christ, you will have the right relationship with God to know your God given purpose and tasks. Of course, it is by choice whether a person wishes to serve God or not. Nonetheless, the clear truth is that, true fulfillment in life comes from God.

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, you can make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved, or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the salvation of God today, and become a member of God’s family! Make the choice to live a fulfilled life with God. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

SUCCESSFULLY OVERCOME ADVERSITY BY EXERCISING YOUR FAITH IN GOD

Successfully Overcome Adversity By Exercising Your Faith in God

Generally, people or human beings do not like adversity in their lives, at all. And technically, in truth, it can be practically said that, “Nobody likes adversity.” But, on the other hand, although people do not like adversity, God usually has good reasons or purposes, when and why it is valid and necessary to sometimes allow adversity.

Based on the bible, sometimes God allows adversity because the people or person was disobedient or stubborn (see Genesis 3 and Deuteronomy 29:14-29), or sometimes God allows adversity because God is giving the people or person the opportunity to exercise their faith in Him. For example, in the case of Queen Esther (see Esther 3-9), and in the case of Job (see Job 1-42). Either way, when God allows adversity, it is usually for a good reason and for a valid purpose. And, there is hope and comfort in having this understanding.

Therefore, it is valuable to consider this question, “How can anyone successfully overcome adversity in their life?” The short answer is, “By exercising their faith in God.” Of course, the other option is to try to overcome adversity all by one’s self (that is, to try to overcome adversity without God’s help), but this is not a valid option. Jesus already said, “Without me, you can do nothing,” (see John 15:5). Hence, the option or choice to try to overcome adversity all by oneself, without God’s help, can be dangerous and destructive. In fact, it can eventually send a person’s soul to hell, if it is not repented of, because, it is the equivalent of trying to live life separate from God, who is the source of life. But, thank God that He is merciful, kind and forgiving. Nonetheless, God is always just, and we should not take God’s kindness for granted. God’s mercy is not a license to sin, but to live in faith and in righteousness.

By considering another case in the bible, it is clear that in righteousness, faithfulness, and kindness, God judged and redeemed King David out of all his adversities (see 2 Samuel 4:9, 2 Samuel 12:11, and in overall, 2 Samuel 12:1-25). And, in some cases, God sometimes allows adversity for a nation or a city (see 2 Chronicles 15:6 and in overall, 2 Chronicles 15). Regardless of the level of involvement, the key point is that, when it comes to overcoming adversity, it is important to trust in God and to exercise faith in God. By trusting in God, it will allow the connection and the relationship to work with God, and by exercising faith in God, it will allow actions to be taken to overcome the adversity. The goal is to successfully overcome the adversity, and to take the opportunity to continue to grow to become better.

In the bible, the case with King David is also a good example of a person trusting in God during a time of adversity, while also believing in God for deliverance. In Psalm 31:1, King David wrote, “In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.” And in addition, based on the life story of King David, clearly with God’s help, he was able to overcome all his adversities, as well as, achieving some really great accomplishments in his life for God’s glory. The case with Job is also another good example of how God preserved a person during adversity, and later restored and blessed him more than he had ever been before. Similarly, Queen Esther is another good example of how God strengthened a person during adversity, and her courage grew tremendously in the process. And, in addition, Queen Esther was greatly blessed.

Other relevant bible passages to keep in mind about adversity include, Proverbs 17:17, Proverbs 24:10, and Ecclesiastes 7:14. In addition, it is important to note that God can provide teachers and guidance to help you while you are experiencing adversity (see Isaiah 30:20-21). Also, it is important to note that, God can turn your enemy to become supportive of you during your time of adversity (see Jeremiah 15:11).

Likewise, it is significant and essential to note that, based on God’s standard, adversity will at some point, and eventually, come to all people, but, life is always a precious gift (see Jeremiah 45:4-5). And, there is great hope when we live our lives with God, keep in mind, Psalm 34:19, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Meaning, God can deliver you from all your adversities too, if you trust in God and you exercise your faith in God. And, in addition, God can provide a shield of protection for you, if you trust in Him (See Psalm 18:30).

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the Salvation of God today and become a member of God’s family. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.

KEEP SOWING AND PLANTING SEEDS OF FAITH

Keep Sowing and Planting Seeds of Faith

Thoughts are so important in life and it is good to know that God is thinking about us. In the bible, God spoke about His thoughts for us, and His care for us, saying, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart,” (Jeremiah 29:11-13). Amen. By the grace of God, we know and understand that God is thinking about us, and that God deeply cares for us. And, God is always available to listen to our prayer, when we earnestly seek Him.

So, let’s consider some key questions. What do you think about? Do you think about God? Do you believe in Him? In Mark 11:22, Jesus said, “Have faith in God.” That is, our faith should be steadfastly rooted in God. As believers, and this is if you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, we should have an unwavering faith in God. It is so important that our thought life is aligned to strongly believe in God wholeheartedly, and for us to exercise our faith in God and to help others by planting seeds of faith.

What is the essence of having faith in God, if we do not exercise our faith? What is the essence of having faith in God, if we do not practice our faith? Even if our faith is as small as a mustard seed, we can be raise assured that we can do great things with our faith in God. Jesus explained in Luke 17:6, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” This type of experience comes when we totally believe in God and we do not doubt Him, even if our faith is as small as a mustard seed.

If you think you are not quite there yet, do not lose hope. There is room to make changes, and there is room for growth. Faith leads to hope, and hope leads to love. And, faith leads to salvation in Jesus. Apostle Paul wrote about the gospel of the Lord Jesus saying, “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith”” (Romans 1:17). So there is room to make changes and to believe in the Lord Jesus, and there is room for growth to grow from faith to faith. So do not give up in seeking God and in growing your faith in God. And, do not give up when it comes to sowing and planting seeds of faith.

When it comes to aligning our thoughts with faith, hope, and love in God, we are also encouraged by what Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4:8 saying, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” And, very importantly, keep firmly in mind what Jesus said in Mark 11:22, “Have faith in God.” So, be encouraged to believe in God strongly, firmly, totally and wholeheartedly, and God will not fail you. And, if you are not yet saved, you can click here to learn how to become born again and to be saved by the Lord Jesus Christ. Live your best life being inspired by God, and be blessed always.

YOU ARE WONDERFULLY MADE BY GOD

You Are Wonderful

You are wonderful, unique and special to God. You are not here in vain and you are not a random occurrence in life. The truth and fact of the matter is that God knows you totally and completely, and God has a special purpose for your life. King David wrote one of the most beautiful verses in the bible about God’s creation and He praised God saying in Psalm 139:14, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” It is so important to note that this bible verse was not just about King David, and so, as we can understand it, this bible verse is applicable to each person and it magnificently portrays the fact that all people have been fearfully and wonderfully made by God.

God is so awesome, wonderful and amazing that all his works are marvelous. When we truly understand our identity with God, it is such a fulfilling encounter that can last throughout our entire lifetime and eternity. The bible tells us that we were created in God’s image. According to the verse in Genesis 1:27, the bible clearly explains, So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” That is such an awesome identity! Thank God that we were created in God’s image! Knowing this truth and living it every day can bring such tremendous fulfillment and true satisfaction in our lives! Truly, each person can take the journey to walk with God in their life and it is certainly the best choice to make. It is a great adventure to walk with God and to experience the amazing works of God in a person’s life!

So God has provided a great promise and an important invitation in Jeremiah 33:3 saying, “‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’” This is a wonderful invitation by God to any person who wishes to take the adventure to walk with God. And, it is important for each person to know that he/she is greatly loved by God. Each person was wonderfully made by God in His image, and each person can take the journey to walk with God.

THE MARRIAGE COVENANT

The Marriage Covenant
The marriage covenant is a special union created by God to unite two people to become one flesh. In the bible, when the Pharisees came and asked Jesus, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” (Matthew 19:3), Jesus responded to the question with, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” (Matthew 19:4-6)

In addition, the Pharisees also asked Jesus, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” (Matthew 19:7). And, Jesus responded with, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.” (Matthew 19:8-9)

Therefore, the marriage covenant is meant to be loving and honorable. It is meant to allow the husband and wife to build a special connection and bond that lasts throughout their lifetime, and unless separated by God, or separated through divorce because of sexual immorality. The bible encourages those in marriage to be kind to each other. According to Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” So clearly, cheating is unacceptable with God.

And, God is so kind to also share with us in the bible about the marriage between Jesus and the believers or saints. In Revelation 19:6-9, Apostle John recorded the vision that he saw in heaven, saying, And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.””

Therefore, the marriage covenant is a very important and a special union filled with deep meaning and significant attributes. When God unites two people in the marriage covenant, it is meant to be honored, celebrated, and accepted by all. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.
