my WALK with GOD today – 28

HE already knew what HE was going to do

When the Lord allows me to face a situation that seems an impossible one for me, He graciously would ask me to answer His question. His purpose is to involve me as His partner to find the best solution.

It doesn’t mean that He also saw the problem through my lenses, and had the same opinion as mine. It does mean that He wants me to see the problem through His lenses, so that I will have the same opinion as His.

It doesn’t mean that He didn’t know the answer yet. It does mean that He already knew what He is going to do, He is testing me.

His question will help me to go through a very significant process, that will stretch me to know His ways and His way of thinking, and get valuable insights and understanding. WISDOM. It is the main purpose He has for me.

He said “WE”, it means He and me. “Don’t be afraid. I am here!” He is with me always. As long as He is with me, everything would be okay. FAITH.

“impossible for me” means it is His portion not mine. So I just bring what I have had in my hands to Him. He did the miracle for me, to help me to adore Him more deeply. And to follow Him because I understood the miraculous signs. I want to be with Him because I know Him. KNOWING HIM.

“As it is written in the Scriptures,‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.” John 6:45/NLT

my WALK with GOD today – 27

May I come in, please…

Hi, my dear Friends in Indonesia,

I am writing this letter to you because it seems you are very busy in the kitchen, and no one hear my “knock, knock” at your door.

I just want to let you know that I am very keen to come in and eat with you. I know that you love me so much, and are preparing the best Indonesian food for me. It’s true that I love Indonesian food very much, it’s spicy and very delicious. I think you have been worried too much about the food.  The most important to me is having an intimate relationship with you.  I would love a face to face table talk with you every morning.

So, may I come in, please… Just open the door for me, let me come in and stay with you. Let me serve you, I am the host and you are my guest. Just enjoy a lovely time with me, and get to know me better and closer.  The more you know me, the more insight you get. It will open your mind and open your eyes.

I know you have learnt by heart that “People do not live by rice alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Yes, you will enjoy to find the truth. It is sweeter than the best honey in Indonesia. You will love my food the most. You will drink the living water I give you, and you will never thirst.

I am very keen to be your intimate Friend. So that, in the last day I can declare that “I know you.”

Much love,

Jesus

my WALK with GOD today – 26

Count the very hairs on your head 🙂

Every time we are afraid, just try to count the very hairs on your head. And when we find we are not able to know how many they are, stop counting, DON’T WORRY, GOD KNOWS HOW MANY THEY ARE! 🙂

You and me are SO PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT. TRUST in HIM!

“And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.”

my WALK with GOD today – 25

Thank you very much, my Lord…

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand–when I awake, I am still with you.

My deepest thank you my Lord, you have been working out your plans for my life for your faithful love endures forever.

my WALK with GOD today – 24

Following HIM and Flowing with HIM

I build a good and strong relationship base on TRUST. I maintain the good and strong relationship and make it better and stronger by keep trusting and can be trusted. When I keep trusting in God because He can be trusted, I keep building a better relationship with Him by knowing Him and experiencing His Word is TRUE. The more I knowing Him the more I know His Will and His Ways, and it makes me know how to do what is right, and to keep doing what is right. Following HIM  and flowing with HIM.

So TRUE what I read today: Although Abram had been demonstrating his faith through his actions, it was his belief in the Lord, not his actions, that made Abram right with God. We, too, can have a right relationship with God by trusting him. Our outward actions-church attendance, prayer, good deeds-will not by themselves make us right with God. A right relationship is based on faith–the heartfelt inner confidence that God is who he says he is and does what he says he will do. Right actions will follow naturally as by-products.-LASB

“And Abram believed the LORD, and the LORD counted him as righteous because of his faith.”-NLT

Thank you GOD for tears…

It was on the day when I was sobbing and weeping. With a heart still amazed with the surprise… I had been wondering on what reason the LASB starts its devotion with tears, I was so blessed and very grateful reading the brief devotion following the today’s verse. I started this reading plan on the right time, in His time.

Pouring out his heart with tears, David was completely honest with God. We can be honest with God even when we are filled with anger or despair because God knows us thoroughly and wants the very best for us. Anger may result in rash outward acts or turning inward toward depression. But because we trust in our all-powerful God, we don’t have to be victims of circumstance or be weighted down by the guilt of sin. Be honest with God, and he will help you turn your attention from yourself to him and his mercy.-LASB ® Devotion – Day 1

Find God to tell everything in my heart. He is the right Person who can help with accurately the best. He can use my friends, their best advise, their precious time to listening. He can use a nice place, a pleasant atmosphere, nice ice cream, or nice coffee… All are God’s effective tools in His mighty loving hands. But He Himself is the very best Friend I can have, He is with me. I am in His hands. Secure.

Thank you God for tears…

“I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears. My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies. Go away, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping. The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will answer my prayer.”-King David (NLT)

my WALK with GOD today – 22

Walking with GOD always is real. He always keep His promise: to be with me always. In hard times and happy times. He always has time for me. He walks with me and He talks with me, He gives me His wisdom, understanding, insights… to do what is right. To be an upright person before God and man.

“This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.”-NLT
