F.Y.I [Readers of Brothers & Sisters overseas] For every Singapore citizens, we have the mandatory obligation to serve the Nation for 1 year 10 months. I am the unlucky ones who served 2 years, 6 months in the past.
I laid my hand on my brother before he entered the departure gate, I found that I can hardly prayed in inspiration (in words) more in the spirit, I wonder is that a good? What are your opinions? I prefer writing...
There were brothers & sisters who asked me if I understand what I am praying, when I pray in Spirit, my answer is "Yes" but I do not know such prayer has syllabus. Personally, I believe it is a hidden prayer "Mr. Sa Tan" will never have the ability to understand. Praying in Spirit is like your 'chemistry' bonding between two love ones, as we are Jesus Bride Amen?!
I believe prayer in the spirit is a charisma or can aid us to be charismatic in our World of reality. I have a heap load of work yet to be done as every Monday we have insane meetings & conference. Yet I believe, "But Seek First His kingdom & His righteousness, & ALL these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 I expect Jesus’ favors over my work & grant me the wisdom to go through another exciting week of my life!
Pastor Prince today shared about the High Priest, led us to [Hebrews 4 14-16]
"In as much then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended & pass through Heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him]. For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand & sympathize & have a shared feeling with our weakness & infirmaries & ability to the assaults of temptation but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet, without sinning. Let us then fearlessly & confidently & boldly draw near to the throne of Grace [The throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners], that we may receive need [appropriate help & well-timed help, coming just when we need it]." [Amplified Bible].
How Bless! We have an almighty God, not mighty mouse! His name is Jesus, who has been tempted in every aspects, yet without sinning. He came willing from Heaven to Earth, how humble, being the Only Son of God, Kinds of Kings to understand us, shared our feeling & weakness in our life.
We cannot turn around & snap, "But He is God, I am human, God can't understand. Can He understand my financial problem? My depressing heart-break with my love ones? Can He understand My Dad is in the hospital fighting for his life?" Jesus is the way. He not only can understand all, He can reverse the situation, where there seem to be NO WAY! Our God we serve is not only a living God; He is a good God with ever-lasting love & compassion..
Some sharing, Certain things about God are easy to imagine. I can imagine Him creating the World & suspending the stars. I can envision Him as almighty, all-powerful, & in control. I can fathom a God who knows me, who needs me, & I can even fathom a God who hears me. But a God who hears me. But a God who is in love with me? A God who is crazy for me? A God who die for me?
That’s message of the Bible, Our Father is relentlessly in pursuit of His children. He has called us home with his words, paved the path with His Blood, & is longing for our arrival that is our God Amen?! When we fix our eyes on Jesus, we can use any tragedy as a stumbling block or a stepping stone...God wants us to trust him in good times & the bad Amen?!
Let us think about God's joy. What can cloud it? What can quench it? What can kill it? Is God ever refused to rotate the earth because His feelings are hurt? No! Jesus is a joy which consequences cannot quench. Jesus is peace which circumstances can't steal.
God does not save us because of what we've done. Only a puny God could be bought with tithes. Only an egotistical God would be impressed with our pain. Only a temperamental God could satisfied by sacrifices. Only a heart less God would sell salvation to the highest bidders. And only a Great God does for His children what they can't do for themselves...
Thank you Jesus! Have you received Him as your Savior? Have you 'back-slide' thinking God will never want such a sinner, The Lord said, it is the sick that needs the doctor...Come back to Jesus...let Him take away all your emotional, physical or mental pain. "It is finished 2000 years ago" your every stripes, He took it on His broken body, the crown of thorns removing ALL emotional or mental deceptions the Devil 'creates' for you, all on the Old rugged Cross...
