Born to be a blessing!

Belated Merry X'mas & Happy New Year to all brothers & sisters in Christ! I 'log in' the date of November last year as I blog once a month but little did I know it took me 2 months after my last entry. I had stomach & gastric flu just a few days before the Korea trip with the family & by grace of Jesus; I manage to recover though the doctor warned me that I am not fit to travel. This is another amazingly testimony I will share in the next entry, God is good is definitely an understatement...

I am unwell and had been on medical leaves for near to 15 days, which is why I had not blog as I spend most of my time resting in bed. My asthma was triggered after a week of lung infection & doctor’s explanation was stress & bad weather. I had very bad asthma since young but stopped for 10 years & this relapse is really challenging. Frequent chest pain, feeling breathless, induces fatigue & frustration. Beloved, pray for me & I am keeping myself joyful with verse 1 Thess 5:16-18 [NCV], "Always be joyful. Pray continually, & give thanks whatever happens. That is what God wants you in Christ Jesus."

Dread for medical review coming Monday, was advised to rest in hospital but I chose to stay at home as I never like hospital environment. The smell, the machines...Last Sunday I managed to attend service where Pastor Brian Houston from Hillsong Church quoted a verse that is inspiring from the book of Nehemiah. "So Ezra the scribe stood on a platform of wood which they had made for the purpose...And Ezra opened the book in sight of all the people; & opened it, all the people stood up. And Ezra blessed the Lord, the Great God. Then all the people answered, "Amen, Amen! While lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads & worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground." Neh 8:4-6 [NKJV]

His revelation of the word "platform" reaches deep into my heart. We have various platforms to share the grace of God from our workplace to our family! What stuck me most was the voice of the Lord; He spoke about the new "platform", our blogs in cyberspace where an island such as Singapore can be reached to as far as United States, Australia, Britain, Africa, India, & China...basically the whole World! In the old covenant, with Ezra just opening the book, everyone fell on their faces to worship the Lord, how much more is the new covenant where Jesus, the son of God, on the old rugged cross gave us life, a life of abundance & grace! Amen?!

Result of good Gospel of Jesus Christ is health & wealth. If we are still debating about health & wealth whether these are the portion of the Gospel, then we have problem with Jesus as everywhere Jesus went He healed every individuals. Everywhere Jesus went, He made fishermen who toil all night caught nothing; He gave them a net breaking boat of fishes. He fed 5000 with 12 baskets full of left over! Health & wealth is the result of the Gospel, the Gospel of Grace! By Faith Abel offered...By Faith Enoch was taken...By Faith Noah...By Faith Abraham...By Faith Sarah...By Faith Jacob...By Faith Joseph...By Faith Moses...By Faith Rahab...Heb 11:1-40 [NASB] By Faith Amen?! All things are possible through Christ Jesus! By Faith we are Healed, we are Blessed Amen?!

With Jesus. No back-door entrance. No late-night arrival. Paradise knows neither night nor second-class citizens. As we accept His forgiveness, our day of gripes & groans becomes a day of gratitude. Gratitude is the firstborn child of grace, the appropriate response of the blessed. When others nail us to the cross of our past, Jesus swings open the door to our future paradise. Jesus treats our shame-filled days with grace. We are wrong. He is right. We sin. He is the Savior. We need grace. Jesus can give it. So ask Him, "Remember me when you enter the kingdom." And when you do, the one who spoke then will speak again. "Today you will join me in paradise."

A good opinion of God!

Praise Jesus I get to blog tonight! Just finish listening to one of the sermon of Pastor Prince full of blessings to share. If we are believing right, we will be living right as Jesus came to give us grace! Why do we need faith if we can earn it? I learn this truth just about a week ago when my sister wakes up in the morning complaining of pain & had a relapse. I was half asleep as I was working on one of the project till dawn, in fact I did not sleep at all, mum looked at me for my opinion & I was just exhausted, I could not think...

To cut the story short, we sent her to a private hospital, got one of the best doctor to attend to her, X-rays were taken & the doctor initiated another CT scan. When mum told me about this, my first reaction was, "Oh Christ, this must be costly!" as I know all the scans are expensive, indeed this medical incident was expensive. However, the next day, the scan was reviewed, my sister was just suffering from indigestion & all is good! Thank you Jesus!

At times, I don't understand God's plan. Why are there trials and tribulations? I came to comprehend this => when God does not give us what we want, it does not means He is not loving us but strengthening us inside. When God shuts a window, He will open a door. When God shuts a door, He will open a Big Gate! Amen?! I never dream I will blog for the Glory of God! I never dream I will sit still in Church, listening to sermons, to share God's love for us! Jesus transforms me! Beloved, trust God, trust the goodness of God! Trials can destroy us if we don't have a good opinion of God! We can rejoice in trials as all things work together for Good! Troubles and trials have redemptive quality! God will use us, our experience to be a Blessing of someone out there...

Now I know I am not an accident but born with a purpose in life! Out of our strength of trials, we will strengthen others! Let the result speak for itself! Just like now I am busy training my team, in fact a new team was formed out of His grace, that is why I been so busy but I want to make it a point monthly no matter how busy I am, I must blog to share with all beloved, His goodness & grace.

When we lose our temper with a Child, Christ intervenes: "I've Paid for that." When we tell a lie & all of Heaven groans, our Savior speaks up: "My death covered that Sin." As we lust, gloat, covet, or judge, Jesus stands before the tribunal of Heaven & points to the Blood-Streaked cross. "I've already made provision. I've taken away the sins of the World." "You therefore my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." 2 Tim 2:1 [NKJV]

Lift our eyes off the weeds. Major in the grace of God. "Always be joyful. Pray continually, & give thanks whatever happens. That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thess 5:16-18 [NCV]. Always be joyful. Give thanks whatever happens. Learn to handle troubles cheerfully & with good opinion, as opportunities rather than irritations for there are plenty of big jobs waiting for people who are not afraid of troubles...Impossible, we say? How do we know? How do we know until we give every day a chance?

Now !!!

"For He says, at acceptable Time I listened to you. And on the day of Salvation I helped You." Behold NOW is "The Day of Salvation" 2 Cor 6:2 [NASB] Powerful revelation from Pastor Prince, as I never notice the word now till last week Bible study! In the name of Jesus Christ, I proclaim NOW, all bondages of yours will break be it spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically or financially! As Jesus cried on the Cross: "It is finished!!!" Amen?!

As for me, work is a never ending story, I will Blog at least once a month as daily I miss all of you, beloved Champions! Had stomach Flu for 2 weeks & irritable bowel due to stress. Pastor is preaching about Rest & his sermons came at the right time as I am burning out. Rest simply means to do what you can at your best e.g. in your work place & leave the rest to the Lord! Stop laboring your job, thinking how is my proposal? Am I doing enough to follow up with my sales clients, will my director accept my proposal etc...

On last Wednesday during the Bible Study, out of no where came my worry to Bless my family for a holiday. The deceptions of Satan came with deceptions: aren't you upgrading to a premium car? Do you think your family will appreciate you for doing so? [I attend New Creation Church while the rest of my family house themselves in another Church. At times we have conflict over the matter of Grace while it is the Grace teaching from Pastor Prince Ministry that brought me out of the land of lack to prosperity of entering the promise land flowing with milk & honey!] At that exact moment of my thoughts, Pastor preached that "Money is to be used! Don't save at the expense of fear. Don't use people, love people. I felt that sense of peace words cannot describe..."

Cutting the testimony short, I bless my whole family for a trip to Korea in winter as my younger sister wanted to have a feel of snow! My family chooses the package & I bless them with the grace of Jesus. I felt the peace in my heart, as Devil, you do not tell us what to do in our life as we are Child of most high God! Amen?! I had my plans as well to visit sister Janice for the cheese cake, Sister Kitty, Sister Lori Sister Dana etc

"This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it" Psalm 118:24 [NKJV]. So we should give our day by a chance, change our view, & imitate the resolve of the psalmist: "I will rejoice & be glad in it." We can't spend tomorrow's money, celebrate tomorrow's achievements, or resolve tomorrow's riddles. We have only today: This is the day that the Lord has made. We must be present to win! Don't heavy today with yesterday's regrets or acidize it with tomorrow's troubles. But we tend to do so don't we; I confess I do at times!

We sabotage our day, wiring it for disaster, lugging along yesterday's troubles, downloading tomorrow's struggles. Remorse over the past, anxiety over future. We aren't giving our day a chance! God's mercies are new every morning. Receive them. Lightning strikes us as well. Thunderbolts of regret can ignite & consume us. Counteract them with downpours of God's grace, Jesus blood daily washings of forgiveness. "The Lord's love never ends; His mercies never stop. They are new every morning" Lam 3:22-23 [NCV]

I see Grace...

Beloved, Child of most high God, pardon me for my slow reply. Just want you to know, every line you left on my blog, I see grace, I felt love of Abba in Heaven & thank you for all the prayers for me & my family. Deeply appreciated...

Work is heavy. Encounter many challenges for the month, just like David versus Goliath. Facing the Giants. My router burnt out, thus I lost internet connection & my desktop computer had some software conflicts & had to be formatted. Data recovery is a nightmare...

All in all of the fiasco, I kept telling myself "the battle is the Lord's" I shall just rest in Him. My sister should be better, I hardly get to see her as I worked till late, when I'm home she had rested for the night. Mum didn't mention about her medical condition, I just trust the Lord for her healing! Amen?! As God is good!

A close friend of mine 'sold me' out of a business deal recently. I was so angry with him as our years of friendship was traded for financial gains. Every man for himself. Get all you can, & can all you get. Survival of the fittest? I prayed about it & ask Jesus how could such happen to me? Me! Child of most high God!

He led me to Eccles 7:9 [TEV] "It is foolish to harbor a grudge". An eye for an eye becomes a neck for a neck & a job for a job & a reputation for a reputation. "Godwyn, When does it stop?" Vengeance fixes our attention at life's ugliest moments. Score-settling freezes our stare at cruel events in our past. Is this where we want to look? Will rehearsing & reliving our hurts make us a better person? By no means. It will destroy us...

Revenge removes Jesus from the equation. Vigilantes displace & replace Jesus. "I'm not sure you can handle this one, Jesus. You may punish him too little or too slowly. I'll take this matter into my hands, thank you" Ever have such thoughts? I admit I do at times. No one had a clearer sense of right & wrong than the perfect Son of God, Jesus!

Give grace. Forgiveness is not foolish. Forgiveness is, at its core, choosing to see our offender with different eyes. To forgive is to move on...Jesus lived the life we could not live & took the punishment we could not take to offer the hope we cannot resist. His sacrifice begs us this question: If he so loved us, can we not love each other? Having been forgiven, can we not forgive? Having feasted at the table of grace, can we not share a few crumbs? "My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other" Rom 12:21 [MSG]
