God is Amazing

How amazing God is. Think about this; “I am not just a God of awesome power, a God who decides who should be rewarded and who should be punished. That is what human rulers do. I am a God of second chances. I understand that human beings can’t be perfect. I help people so that they don’t repeat next year the same mistakes they made last year. I give people the amazing ability to be somebody different next year than they were this past year. I am a God who helps people in difficulty, not by making their path smooth and easy but by holding their hand as they walk a difficult path, not by taking away their problems but by giving them qualities they didn’t believe they were capable of, so that they can deal with the problems themselves. You yourself become the answer to your prayer.”

God Knows You’re Not Perfect

Stop crying and complaining that you haven’t been able to have a perfect life. Some people blame and hate themselves for failing, falling or not meeting their goals or some set standards even when God who created you knows and doesn’t expect you to be perfect in this world. God created us as human beings in His image, with a combination of faith and frailty, sometimes we aim high and sometimes fall short; sometimes we get some things wonderfully right and other times terribly wrong.

If you have failed today or experiencing some challenge or the other, do not despair or hate yourself for it, never consider yourself a failure because tomorrow is another day and you will have fresh opportunities to make up for your missed chances.

No life is sweet all the time. No one experiences successes and victories all the time, the same way the day gives way for the night that’s the same with our lives, we win some and lose some; we laugh sometimes and cry other times. Such is life. Let’s learn to accept it and live it!

A Message Of Hope

My child, I have a message for you today. Let me whisper it in your ear so any storm clouds that may arise will shine with glory, and the rough places you may have to walk will be made smooth. It is only four words, but let them sink into your inner being, and use them as a pillow to rest your weary head.“This is my doing.”

Have you ever realized that whatever concerns you concerns Me too? “For whoever touches you touches the apple of [my] eye”(Zech.2:8).“You are precious and honored in my sight” (Isa. 43:4).Therefore it is My special delight to teach you.

I want you to learn when temptations attack you, and the enemy comes in “like a pent-up flood” (Isa.59:19),that “this is my doing” and that your weakness needs My strength, and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.

Are you in difficult circumstances, surrounded by people who do not understand you, never ask your opinion, and always push you aside? “This is my doing.” I am the God of circumstances. You did not come to this place by accident—you are exactly where I meant for you to be.

Have you not asked Me to make you humble? Then see that I have placed you in the perfect school where this lesson is taught. Your circumstances and the people around you are only being used to accomplish My will. Continue reading A Message Of Hope
