In the Eye of the Storm...
Been back to the house of God & I feel so good to be 'fed' by the Pastors. Like a lamb, I look upon our Good Shepherd & be led by Him as He says, "I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lay down His [Own] life for the sheep."John 10:11 (Amplified Bible) Pastor Prince has been sharing about the Lord being our Shepherd & many a time, being in the House of God is a confirmation of what the Lord speaks in the week, through the Holy Spirit in us, I purely believe in the relationship with God, not a religion or the rituals, do you? Last Sunday Pastor Prince preached on Shalom the Lord gave to us, check out "Tribulations - to destroy us?
Oh did I mention about the blessings? Our Church is in the heart of a busy shopping arcade [unique, right? it's call Suntec City, remember to check it out when you come to Singapore!] and it almost impossible to find a parking space on a busy Sunday. Yet, for the past few weeks, the Lord bless us with an instant parking space when we reached Suntec! It's like a personal parking lot, immediate access to the Church! Praise the Lord! As much as the Devil tried to put us in bad traffic or other incidents to delay the trip to worship our Abba, the Lord never fail to bless us! Lunch time is packed with heaps of people awaiting for seat at the food court, my brother in Christ and me will declare the blessing and instantly, we are happily seating down, ordering our food!
It is just parking space and seats for food, what is the big deal? Oh ya, when you face with fleets of cars awaiting for a single car park lot & you are frustrated & hungry, couldn't wait to be embraced in the house of God, that instant blessing you feel then, has the ability to 'wash' away your Monday blues keeping your heart in peace for the good week ahead! Often it is the simplicity of life that make up our happiness, I do not know about you but to know that our Father in Heaven bless such 'little' needs, surely when the storm arrive, the Lord would embrace me from his promises of Psalm 91, "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge & my fortress, my God; on Him I lean & rely, and in Him I [Confidently] trust!' Psalm 91:2 (Amplified Bible)
Try this, "Father, I declare in your name I need..." That activates the Blessing button & out flows the river of life! I did not know such work till Pastor Prince preached on this supernatural blessing that the Lord bless such, as it says in Deuteronomy 28:6 "Blessed shall you be when you come in & blessed shall you be when you go out."
I am still in the storm, in fact I am in the Eye of the Storm...yet I want to share that the Lord bless me & upheld me with his love from Chaos to Calm. I am hailstormed by demands, assailed by doubts & pummeled by questions! If you are in one, then you know what I mean. Godincidence, I just read my collection of Max Lucad's books, "In the eye of the Storm, a day in the life of Jesus." I never dream that Jesus knows how I feel [As being a human]. Do you know of the story of a God who became human? Jesus! Why? He did that so that you & I would believe that the Healer knows our hurts, he voluntarilty became one of us. He placed himself in our position. He suffered our pains & felt our fears.
Feel better now knowing you are not alone? I do. Thanks for all the prayers, my little sister & my Dad are getting better though the healing is progressive, I will fix my eyes on the perfect work on the cross. Just remember:Jesus Loves us heaps!
