Amazing Love!!

Hello! Hello!๐Ÿ™‹

Anyone in the Christmas mood!!!!!!!!!๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜„ 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!!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ Just a small clip below of the praise fest!๐Ÿค—

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!๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜†

Lord, Forgive Our Hypocrisy!!

Did you know that the Bible records the word hypocrite or hypocrisy over 35 times in the King James Version?ย The word “hypocrite” comes from the Greek word “hypokrite” which basically was the word used for an “actor.” The actor pretended to be someone he was not, and would sometimes wear a mask, to cover his real identity. This is a picture of what our word “hypocrite” means today. Webster’s Dictionary gives this definition of hypocrisy: “a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not: behavior that contradicts what one claims to believe or feel.”

I found Jesus so intense about this topic in the New Testament.ย Matthew 24:45-51ย says:-

45 โ€œWho then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, โ€˜My master is staying away a long time,โ€™ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The beginning of this chapter talks about the destruction of the temple and signs of the end times. Reading it made me really evaluate myself, think through my life. Are my actions forming a part of what Jesus foretold was to come in the end times? Am I deceiving others with my words and actions? Have I ever turnedย  away from my faith? Have I betrayed another? Have I hated someone else? Has my love grown cold? Am I a wicked servant? One that beats fellow servants, who eats and drinks with drunkards? Then my place is with the hypocrites. The place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. This made me really think. Think of the times when I have let Jesus down by shying away from the Kingdom of God. Times when I revenged. Times when Iย  hurt others deliberately out of hate and pain within me. Oh, how much guilt feels my heart. Good guilt. This is the one that takes me back to my knees and approach the throne of myย  Heavenly Father for forgiveness and washing of sins. How much fear and trembling takes over me as I feel the shame of my actions!!

Lord, forgive me. Lord, forgive us. Forgive us for turning away from the faith that you graciously brought our way. Forgive us Lord for the lukewarmness when things are good and there are no difficulties making us run to you as often as we should. Forgive us for not standing up for the Kingdom of God when it really matters. How vile our words must be when we profess love to you yet we shower those around us with hate through gossiping and back stabbing.

Have mercy on us, our Savior and cleanse us of all filth that classifies us as hypocrites!! Purge us with hyssop and we shall be clean. If we say we have no sin, then we deceive ourselves. Holy Spirit, open our eyes to the ways we have displeased our King and we shall repent. We are only human, and are sinful at birth. We look to you Jesus for salvation. Deliver us from the guilt of bloodshed, oh God. Let the blood of your Son at Calvary blot out all our iniquity.

After you are done cleansing us Lord, won’t you restore unto us the joy of salvation. May the bones you have crushed rejoice. Grant us a willing and zealous spirit to serve you even more for the rest of our lives. On your return, our prayer is that we will be counted as wise and faithful servants. That you will find us doing what you desire of us. That we will serve you at our various areas of gifts in ways that will give you glory and honor!! Be praised Gracious and Merciful God!! You are truly God like no other!! You deserve all praise for who you are. Be magnified in our lives!!

Thank you Jesus!! And now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more, Amen!!

God bless you and see you next week Friday!!
