Amazing Love!!

Hello! Hello!πŸ™‹

Anyone in the Christmas mood!!!!!!!!!πŸ€£πŸ€—πŸ˜„ Yes, the year 2018 is soon coming to an end. Mmmmmhh! I just can’t believe all the good things the Lord has done for me this year. Definitely I had not imagined it ending like this. Yes, my heart was expectant of the Mighty hand of God doing miracles but to be honest things have turned out above what I could ask, think or imagine! I bless you Lord. You are truly good all the time. My beloved reader, do not get me wrong, there are things that have not matured but you know what, am grateful to the Lord this far! He has been Ebenezer. I am alive and breathing and still expectant of more from my Heavenly Father! And very likely, God does expect much from me!

Travis Greene’s show that I attended on 30th November in Nairobi was superb. As I had written, my heart was expectant of hearing God’s voice and Jehovah did not disappoint. One major thing that I left the concert with, which I received pretty much in the first worship songs is that He is concerned about the inner me. This did not even happen when Travis was singing but during the first local musicians as they did the ‘opening acts’ if you may. By the time, Travis came on stage, my heart had already been ministered to, my spirit lifted and all that remained was just to thank and praise the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!! Hallelujah!!πŸ™πŸ™Œ Just a small clip below of the praise fest!πŸ€—

Yes, I went to this concert with quite a low spirit and really needed that ‘surgical operation’ of the heart from the one who formed me. I had doubts and questions about my future. I really wanted to know if my current decisions pleased Him and is there something I needed to deal with to better position me for impact as I fulfill my purpose on earth and for His Kingdom. Was there something I needed to correct? Was there something I needed to work on? Yes, I had questions. And I got the answer. That Jesus loves me. He knows my life and experiences and knows very well what makes me tick and what puts me off. My Good Shepherd has seen my highs and lows in life and knows way I am who I am right now, in my thinking, my habits, my likes and dislikes.

It felt truly assuring to know that. Here I was looking for all these answers and all I needed was just one. That I was loved beyond measure. I do not think I can describe it with words how much that affirmation put me back where I needed to be. That he is not so mad at me at my failures but that his grace is sufficient for me in my weakness. That he has placed me in a position in life that he knows very well I can handle. My recent favorite verse that I have been quoting so often lately is Psalms 29:11 which says:-
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.

The other is John 14:27 which says ;-
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

What I felt was love! Love from a being I have not seen but have faith that he exists. That one day I will get to see him and spend eternity with him. Love is what I felt! Love is what I was assured. That God’s love endures forever!

Let us pray. Heavenly Father, we come before you this moment. Grateful. Grateful that you loved us, still love us and will always love us. Receive all the praise and honor for who you are Lord. You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Creator of all the universe. There is no one like you. All other gods are just works of men. We acknowledge you as our Savior and so Lord, we come to you in humility, asking for the cleansing of our sins and a refilling of your spirit in us. Remove the blindness from our eyes to see things the way you see them and may our ears always hear your voice guiding us. Help us discern and embrace your love in all areas of our lives and help us show the same to those around us. Thank you Lord Jesus for this far. You have truly been Ebenezer. And the people of God say Amen and Amen and Amen!

God richly bless you and keep you for eternity to spend with him. Amen! See you next week Friday!πŸ˜‡πŸ˜†

God Is Real And Jesus Is The Only Way To Him!!

Last month, I decided to take up a challenge from our Bishop to share the Word of God as I traveled to a nearby East African country for a work assignment. I was inspired by his sermon and testimony last month shared below.

So on the first flight trip from Nairobi, I sought strategy from the Holy Spirit on when and how to approach the young gentleman next to me. He was a Tanzanian national who had been away from home for over 3 years undertaking his studies in one of the Asian countries. And so after I told him the purpose of my travel, I paused for a while as I read the Kenya Airways magazine, Msafiri, I decided to take the conversation a step further. So I inquired if there was an opportunity for him to attend church on Sundays given the cultural/religious difference in the foreign country. He confessed that there was one available near him and he did attend. He was not born again but he shared that his mother always mentioned the need for him to do so and use his singing talent for the Kingdom of God. We continued to talk a bit more on character and holy living. He kept on asking why a young girl like me was so passionate about “church things” and we concluded it is more about the willingness to open up to the Holy Spirit and not about age. We talked more about not just attending church but accepting Christ in one’s life to be the guide in all that we do. I am glad that a seed was planted in him to rethink his life and his future according to God’s will. Every time I remember this conversation, I pray that the seed in him will be protected from the evil one and it will one day grow! I wish him all the best as he desires to start his own business.

On the trip back to Nairobi, I sat next to a gentleman from the United States who was in the company of his parents visiting East Africa for a holiday. I first noticed he had an insect bite on his neck most probably from his adventure. Contrary to the previous one, it was a bit difficult to find a place to spark a conversation with him and how much I kept on praying for an opportunity to open up. Lo and behold, when the flight attendants passed by to serve some snacks, we happened to order the same drink and this made this gentleman smile. Bingo!!! There was my chance. The conversation began with discussing his bite on the neck which was from a fly, I think the Narrow bee fly, in their adventure just as I had presumed. The profile of my neighbor was that of a young man who was once born again but moved backwards in his faith as doubt filled his mind of the authenticity of the Bible. He started reading other religious books searching which faith had the true God. At that time, he was dating a girl that seemed to have more faith in God than him and that was fine with him. And just as in the previous trip I had, a seed was planted for him to rethink his life and reconsider giving Jesus his life who can then answer all his questions and bring peace to his soul. He seemed to be aligned to the fact that Jesus is the true way but I could still see that wavering in him. Before long, the flight landed and that is when we actually got to introduce ourselves to each other and it was indeed a pleasure given the discussions we had!!

How do you know that God is alive and real? Do you believe that He is the one true God and all other gods are just works of men? What gives you that utmost deep assurance of your belief? Do you share him in your marketplace? As I write, I remember this song.

How do I know that my God is God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob? Well because He is God!! What if I was born in another culture and not a Christian upbringing, would I be born again right now? I choose not to look at the “What If?” questions. I will look at the reality of my life and it all points to the grace of God in my life. I have been saved by grace. Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faithβ€”and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of Godβ€” 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

John 14:6 says:-

6 Jesus answered, β€œI am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.Β  The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 :-

9 If you declare with your mouth, β€œJesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Please read the following for more insight.

Is Jesus the only way to be saved?Β  What must I believe to be saved?

God bless and see you next week Friday!!
