Shh…God has a surprise!

Shh…God has a surprise!

Identity in Christ

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord . “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

I am certain that many may have quoted this scripture from Jeremiah 29:11 to you or maybe you know it by heart.

I myself have stood on this scripture in many circumstances. Until recently, when I was seeking the will of God in a situation, but did not get an answer in a simple “Yes / No” .

The wonderful Holy Spirit then whispered to me, “If you buy a surprise gift for a certain person, would you reveal the content of the gift beforehand?”

From then on I wake up every morning rejoicing and knowing that I may not be able to see my future, but it is definitely not uncertain. I may not know the chronology of events that may follow in my life. But my future is filled with possibilities and hope!

His thoughts are higher!

Dear girl friend, this note is especially for you – Until God your father is on the throne your future is not uncertain. The Bible says in Psalms 97:1

The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!

Another translation says: The LORD is King! Tell the earth to celebrate and all islands to shout. (CEV)

Put your trust in God, His choice and His thoughts are always a better option to choose.

I love the story of Ruth from the Bible, She chose to follow God even though her mother-in-law could not promise her a secure future. That one decision changed her destiny and she was included in the bloodline of King David.

Let me close by reminding you again, God has a plan and a purpose for your life and even as I am writing this, I am praying for you that as you seek God and meditate on His word, He will reveal it to you!

Don’t Give Up On Me

Don’t Give Up On Me

Identity in Christ

Recently, I was spending my time in prayer, particularly asking the Lord to help me in an area that I have been struggling with for a while. As I was ending my prayer time I said “Thank You Holy Spirit for not giving up on me”. Well, to my surprise, the conversation did not end with that. The moment I finished saying that, I heard the Holy Spirit say in reply, “Don’t give up on Me either”.

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. ( 2 Cor 3:18 )

God’s job is to transform you

Dear child of God, if there is some (or many) area of your life that you have been struggling with, genuinely desiring a transformation, don’t give up on the Holy Spirit, because He hasn’t given up on you. He’s still in the business of transforming you. Don’t give up on yourself, no matter how many times you have failed. Don’t give those condemning thoughts even one bit of space in your mind.

You and I are “being transformed”. We are in the process. Right now, we might only be able to see our life from a short- sighted view. But we can be at peace knowing that God sees the end from the beginning. That leaves us with no reason to stress out. As we trust Him and take those steps of faith, one at a time, God will take us from glory to glory.

So, shake off that condemnation, cancel that pity party and drop off your anxious thoughts, for He who called you is faithful and He is mighty to save you.

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will arise; though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light. ( Micah 7:8 )

Show the devil his place!

Show the devil his place!

At home my sister and I have an internal joke where we tease each other saying, “The women of the house must clean, wash and cook and that’s our place”. When one of us have something to do, we scream out ‘Know your place’ (which simply means just do the work what you are supposed to do). Now hold on!! Before you start revolting against me, as I said earlier that’s just a joke – Our place isn’t anything less, but we are all just responsible as sons and daughters of the house.

But the Lord showed me, as we give a person a special place in the house, we Christians tend to give satan a special place in our lives, than we give God.

How you ask? Well…

You entertain his thoughts, his baits, his lies, his deception, his temptations?

Condemning thoughts keep coming in your head?

You devalue yourself?

Are you constantly worrying?

How the devil works?

The devil will bring that bait of your weakness and bring it in your presence and he will say, “C’mon, catch it, it’s your old habit. It’s harmless. Just do it once”.

And once you fall for it, you realise later that you are already in a trap of this ongoing cycle of lies and condemnation.

One day the same happened to me, where the enemy gave me a series of thoughts that were not in line with God’s Word. That’s when God showed me loud and clear, “Hey it’s just a bait. You are not the devil’s fish, but you are a fisher of men’.

And that day, I remember, I said out loud, “Get lost devil with your schemes. Know your place”. And when I did that, I felt so free instantly.

Show the devil his place!

Don’t give the enemy a place in your head. The last time I heard he is the size of the rat and still is. He belongs to the pit of hell and THAT’S HIS PLACE. He has no power. Don’t let him rent space in your mind to make you feel lost, distracted, stuck, weak, overwhelmed, depressed or oppressed.

You are called to oppress and depress the devil. Fight back those feelings. And the best way to do it is by saying God’s Word out loud. Sing praises to God.

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. (1 John 4:4-‬5 ESV)

The world listens to the devil and his cohorts because they belong here, but we are not of this world since we are now in Christ and so we have authority! You are an overcomer in Christ. You are called to soar!

If you are fighting temptation, distraction, bondages in thought life, depression, weakness, contact us and we will pray for you.

My God is Not a Dream Killer!

By Kim D’souza

    By Kim D’souza

Then he walked over to the coffin and touched it, and the bearers stopped…. Luke 7:14 It was all over. And they were carrying the coffin away. It was the coffin that carried a dead dream. It was the only dream left with the dreamer. She had conceived it in intimacy and spent years nurturing and guarding it with all that she could afford. All she had was this dream to live on. But alas, when the time came to see the dream into fruition, the dreamer encountered a rude shock. The dream got aborted before time. How could this happen? Who was to be blamed? Why did the Giver gave me the dream if He had to snatch it away? She grappled with these thoughts. But none had the answer. All she got was eyes of sympathy and words of doubt and ridicule. It was now time for the dream to be carried away from the dreamer. It was broken, it was dead. And of no use.
Some dreams are just that – dreams, never meant to realise. And they came to carry the dead dream away. But then Jesus entered the scene. He had to, for He is yet to deny a broken heart. He told the dreamer not to weep. Because weeping implies it’s all over. But hallelujiah, as long as Jesus is in the picture, it’s not all over yet.
He who has promised is faithful

And then, He touched that dead dream. It was the encounter of sorts. Death verses life. Hope versus disappointment. And all those that tried to carry the dream away from the dreamer had to halt! Woohoo, the dream that all gave up on Rose Again!

Reminder

This is a Holy Spirit reminder for you who are reading this because I believe you are not on this page by chance. Is there a dream or vision that God has planted in your heart? Does it seem that it will not come to pass? Are the circumstances or the people in your life carrying the dream away from you? Do not weep. Do not let go. The God that I serve is not a dream- killer. Ask Joseph. Ask Abraham. In fact He is the one that is backing you up to see that dream into fruition. All your dream needs is an encounter with the Word of life and all those who are opposing it will have to stop in their tracks. And you will see your dream come alive!
