Yesterday and the day before, I was able to meet with Christ for all Nations team in Melbourne. I was both excited and honored to meet them and talk to them for a little while. It would be even more exciting if I can partner with them as worker or financial supporter or any other ways if I could. That’s for the future anyway. God’s been good and I can see open doors now. Back to work tomorrow. Praise Jesus!
I had a few days off from Friday till Tuesday this week for Easter and Anzac day celebrations. Had lunch at friends place and today we went off to Kinglake to see nature and then we went to the movies for Fast and Furious 5. Good holidays.
I’ve taken the whole week off except for Monday to attend conference and renew my spiritual strength. I’m excited for God’s move in my personal life and for the city of Melbourne. Praise God.
I was reading the book of Isaiah where God speaks through his prophet about Judah and Jerusalem as being corrupt and full of sins and the consequences of their actions. Interestingly, he mentions that if it weren’t for a very small remnant (see Isaiah 1:9), they should have been destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah. Now, that shows how seriously he takes his promise to his children. He is under an obligation to all Israel to save a remnant of them, so as to preserve their seed to fulfill with them eventually, the covenants made with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David. God still remains true to his promises made to us whatever the situation we are in. He answers prayers when the time is right whatever the situation is.
It’s a frequent thing we hear: I belong to that ministry, I like this person, I like my Church. It may not be wrong to say that because we all like to belong somewhere and God made us to be social beings. As mature Christians, we could listen to what the Bible says and put our sense of belonging in Christ alone. In Christ, there is no distinction between, rich or poor, tall or short, old or young, white or black. Everyone is equal and belongs to him. What an honor it is belong to the creator of our universe.
I have to admit that I do spend more time with people I am more close to and less time with people I am not that close to. I don’t know if this is problem but I have been thinking about God and where I have placed Him among my family and friends. Do I spend more time with my family/friends than I spend with God? Do I have more time doing things I love than doing things He loves? Where is He placed in my heart? Doesn’t he deserve a better position even if comes at the cost of losing time with other things? Time is running. The more I spend with Him, the better I understand his heart.
Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.
I just found a good video from Franklin Graham about the importance of time and if we are ready for Jesus
Sometimes I feel like I am alone and then God reminds me of the scripture that says, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt 28:20). There is nothing for me to worry about. He’ll take care of everything.
Oh and there was this one time, I asked him if I would be doing my ministry alone or if I would partner with someone and he tells me in my mind, that he sent me the Holy Spirit and the he will be my partner. I was like wow!! 🙂
