God my rock!

'Sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom so that you realise that he is the rock at the bottom'

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. (‭Psalms‬ ‭18‬:‭2‬ KJV)

I love you, GOD — you make me strong. GOD is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. My God—the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout. (‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭1-2‬ MSG)

Reading this verse I just was thinking about the actual meaning of it, 'the Lord is my ROCK' from the Stone Age rocks have been used for tools. The minerals and metals found in rocks have been essential to human civilisation. So if God is being referred as a rock to us for me it means that everything about God is essential to our lives, that he is our anchor, he is the rock anchoring us when we tribulations come at us to attack. If we only just hold on to him we will conquer all that is to come. He is a steadfast and unchanging God, the same today yesterday and days to come.

'My Fortress', the word/place Fortress is defined as a place or source of refuge and support. Our God is our fortress he is the one we can go to when we are in trouble, we can go to him at anytime where we will find all we need in his presence, there's nothing that the world can give that will replace the peace/support/protection that Lord gives to us his children. He is the one that knows you, every hair on your head! Can you imagine that? He is the one that has joy for you!

The Lord is also our deliverer! Our strength! His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses! We don't have to struggle by ourselves trying to make things happen when our Heavenly Father has offered and given us his help for free asking nothing in return! There's nothing we could ever give to pay God for all he has done for us. The Lord is also our buckler our shield he protects us his children, if us humans as evil as we are can protect our children what about the father who created and made us how much more will he do for us? If he has his eye on a sparrow what about you? His perfect creation!

So I pray that you may have and encounter with God and real experience of the real God! Not of people's opinions. I pray that the Holy Spirit may guide you and speak to your heart so you may have a personal experience with God so may learn more about him and share him with others! I pray that you may make God the rock of your life!

In jesus name. Amen

Seeking the lost!

( I really really love this image to me it shows me that God continually reaches out for us to help us from all the things in life that are drowning us. We don't have to go through this life on our own all we have to do is reach out to God and he will be there instantly. His hand is not too short to save and his ear is not to deaf to hear. (Isaiah 59:1) 

If you're lost, God will find you.

In Jesus, Gods love and mercy extends to those who hate him. (Romans 5:10) God looked down upon this shrivelled and sin-sick world and understood that there were millions of us who hated him only because we did not know him. Many of us were confused by the lies of our fathers. (Jeremiah 16:19)

God was in Jesus, reconciling the world unto himself. God sent Jesus so that we could know God and be reconciled to him. Jesus was and is the shining forth of everything that God is - because Jesus is God. That is how we can get to know God. If you ask what grace is, it is God sending forth his only Son to die for your pardon so that you can come back to God, knowing that you are forgiven.

In the story of the Prodigal Son, the Bible pictures God as a love-sick Father who constantly scanning  the horizon for the return of his children. When he sees one of us approaching, even if it is from a very great distance, He runs to embrace us and restore to us everything that we have squandered.

What of those who have never heard the gospel? Well, actually, according to the Bible, there is no such person. See John 1:9, Romans 1:18-20, Psalm 19:1-6, Psalm 14 and Romans 3:10-18. My understanding of these text is that people know enough about God to know that they need him and that they need to seek him, but they do not seek him or want him. So God came to seek them.

Again, what of those who personally and utterly hate God? God is still seeking them. He will go to any length to save them. He has no pleasure in their self destruction, and he takes no delight in punishing them. His grace is limited only by their deaths, for it is appointed unto men once to die and after that comes judgement. That is why God does not want anyone to die, but live and learn of him. And yet, inevitably, all must die. Oh God, Help us to live in your grace, and to love others in Jesus name Amen!

Doing it for God

Whatever it is I am to do, do it as if I'm doing it for God so that it may become an act of worship. Whether that may be cooking, looking after your body, work etc irrespective of what it is we should do it with idea that it is for the Lord alone!.. (Lord help me with this, give me the strength not to do the job half way but do it with all my heart and might.)

Ecclesiastes 9:10- Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, where you go.

Wherever God has placed us, it is a holy vocation and not just a job.  We work for God and not just our employer. Ultimately, God will reward us, if not in this life, surely in the life to come.  For those who hate their job, realize that where you are is no accident.  You work for God and so we should do our jobs the very best that we can because we are an example to those outside of the household of faith.  We can make a good impression for the Lord or we can bring shame to the cause of Christ so we ought to “obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord” (Col 3:22).  In other words, don’t just start looking busy when the boss is watching but even when he isn’t, for God is always watching everything you do.

Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭22-25‬ MSG)
