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

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.”
