QUOTES ON TOP

You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 15 (GOD WILL DO GREAT THINGS IN YOUR LIFE)

Mark 5:22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet.

Though his twelve year old daughter was dying, Jairus preferred to leave her and ran to Jesus. If he would have stayed at the bed side of his dying daughter, he would have lost his daughter.

1. Do not try to solve your life problem through your own strength. Run to Jesus and seek His help. He will not forsake you.

He ran to Jesus and fell at His feet. Jairus was one of the rulers of synagogue but yet he humbled himself before God.

2. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. (James 4:10)

Jesus went with Jairus to heal his daughter.

3. Even today God wants you to know that He has heard your prayers and He will grant the desires of your heart.

While they were on their way, someone came from the Jairus house and said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?"

In the worldly perspective it was all over as the daughter of Jairus was dead.

4. Sometimes you see the situation of your life and you think that it was all over. Do not look into the situations but look to the Great God who walks with you for He can bring the dead to life.

God will give life to the dead organs of your body. He will bring life to the dead hopes of your life. Your spiritual life will be restored. Have faith in God at all circumstances. Expect great things from God says Holy Spirit to you.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 14 (GOD WILL TAKE AWAY YOUR REPROACH AMONG PEOPLE)

“…this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.” – Luke 1:36

Elizabeth was righteous before God and blameless. She was old but had no child as she was barren. Bible records that she was called barren.

1.   Even today you might be living a life righteous before God but yet you might not have received the blessing that you are longing to receive. Today God promises you that you will receive what you long for.

2.   You might be spiritually barren. You want to do something for God but yet you are failing again and again in your spiritual life. Today God says that He will establish you to carry His power. God’s power that is going to be revealed through you will touch many in nations.

Elizabeth was called barren but her life doesn’t end that way.

3.   The struggles, problems and troubles that you are facing today will not last longer. Whatever you fear will not happen to you. God will hear your prayers and bless you.

God heard her prayers and blessed her with a child. After that no one called her barren. She was once called as barren woman and her life ended as mother to John the Baptist, one of the greatest prophets.

This is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. What a powerful verse it is! No one will call her a failure anymore. No one will call her a barren woman anymore. No one will mock at her anymore. Her grief and sorrow came to an end. God has taken away her reproach among people. He will do the same to you.

4.   Your life’s situation will change. He will raise you and those who called you barren will come to you and they will rejoice with you. God will do this in your life as nothing is impossible with God.

This is what the Lord says: “...I will come to give rest to Israel.” - Jeremiah 31:2
"...இஸ்ரவேலுக்கு இளைப்பாறுதலைக் கட்டளையிடப்போகிறேன் என்று கர்த்தர் சொல்லுகிறார்."

He was crying out day and night.

1. The problems that you are facing makes you cry day and night. Sometimes when you are alone or surrounded by people, you cry within your heart. You have no comfort. Today God promises you that He will comfort you as a mother comforts you.

He was cutting himself with stones.

2. The situation you are in and the past deeds you have done has filled your heart with guilt. And so you are hurting and wounding yourself. God says that He will heal your wounds.
People were amazed when they saw him clothed, sitting and with clear mind. That means they might not have seen him sitting all those years as he was restless. Jesus Christ gave rest to him. He will do it to you.

3. You have found grace in the sight of God. He will give rest to you. Your life will be completely transformed and you will testify God's glory and wonders.

1. God will turn your mourning to joy.

John 16:20   Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 11 (DO NOT CRY FOR GOD IS WITH YOU)

Luke 24:5-6 "...Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!..."

Sometimes you feel so empty in your heart and life as you could not feel God's presence. As you go through terrible feelings and situations, you feel God is powerless and dead in your life.

1. Your faith is not so strong that you seek the Living God as dead. Today God says that He is alive and you will see His resurrecting power in your life in the coming days.

John 20:11"...Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping..."

John 20:14 "...Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus."

Mary Magdalene was crying Though Jesus was standing behind her. She turned around and saw Him but she didn't know that it was Him and so she continued crying.

2. You are crying today and your heart is bleeding. Holy Spirit wants you to know that Jesus Christ is with you by your side. There is no need for you to shed tears anymore as God is with you.

Jesus Christ revealed Himself to Mary immediately.


3. Even today as you are crying and seeking God, He promises you that He will reveal Himself to you and He will wipe away your tears. You will find Jesus and you will be filled with eternal joy.

GHG REAL LIFE TESTIMONIES - 1 (GOD WILL DO WONDERS IN YOUR LIFE)

“He raises the poor from the dust And lifts the beggar from the ash heap, To set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory..." - 1 Samuel 2:8

There was a young guy who struggled a lot in his school days to score good marks. Whatever he studies he will forgot it immediately. He lacked knowledge and wisdom. He could not even speak a sentence properly.  His marks were less than 375 in 10th std public examination. He could not get a group of his interest in +2. His father tried to find a good school for him but he could not get admission even in a low rated school in that city. He stood by the road and cried lot thinking about his future. Even in +2 exams he could not score more than 800. His future seems to be darkened.

At that time he gave his life to Christ completely and came out of his sinful habits. He began to pray diligently. He got admission in a D. Pharm course and when he finished that course he could settle in a job for a salary of Rs. 1500. Every one of his relatives mocked at him for his inabilities. In the year God spoke to him through a prophet saying He will give a government job for him. Though he could not believe that, He trusted God’s word and begun to pray and study hard diligently for the government exams.

In the year 2006, God fulfilled His promise and gave him a job in the government college and also enabled him to complete Bachelors degree in the same college. Recently as he appeared for an all India GPAT exam, God gave him university level first rank. In the same city where he struggled to get an admission, God made him to stand as university topper. The one who could not speak a sentence properly is now sharing God’s word in an invited weekly live program in that city.

God can do wonders in your life. As you trust in the Lord, you will never be put to shame. God will change your life’s situations and make you as the head and not the tail.  You will always be at the top and never at the bottom.

GHG SHORT BIOGRAPHIES - 1 (MATTHEW AYAIRGA)

Matthew Ayairga was not a Christian. He went to Sirte, Libya to find much needed work. One day he was captured by a group of ISIS militants. He was kept in prison for five weeks with other 20 captured Christians. After keeping them five weeks in prison, the militants took them to a beach to behead them. No one knows why the ISIS militants kidnapped him with the rest.
He was not a Christian yet then was forced to join other kidnapped men dressed in orange jumpsuits, kneeling on a beach, with their black-clothed attackers standing behind. The men wearing black, terrorists affiliated with ISIS were holding knives. 

Each man was then systematically beheaded. Every man who was captured, their lips proclaimed "Lord Jesus Christ," in their final moments. The militant who was holding knife to Matthew's neck asked him, "Do you reject Christ?" 

Matthew Ayairga would have had a much better chance at life had he rejected Christ on that day. He saw everyone who was knelt along with him beheaded. But then after reportedly witnessing the "immense faith" of fellow believers and their death, who all came from Egypt, he decided to become a follower of Christ himself. 

And so he boldly said to the militant, “Their God is my God.” And soon he was beheaded.

"Troubled soul, the "much tribulation" will soon be over, and as you enter the "kingdom of God" you shall then see, no longer "through a glass darkly" but in the unshadowed sunlight of the Divine presence, that "all things" did "work together" for your personal and eternal good." - A.W. Pink

#GHG Short Biography

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 10 (FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAD HURT YOU)

If we read Job 42:9, we can understand that the God who created heaven and earth looked at the face of Job. Why? Job's friends have not spoken what is right of God. So God said to them to go to Job with certain things to offer as burnt offering and God said that Job will pray for them.

Look at the confidence of God. He never said that He will also inform Job to pray for them. These were the same friends who spoke against Job and had hurt him. But God believed and trusted Job that he will do what He asks him to do.

1. Today the Almighty God who sees your heart, can He testify about you with boldness saying that you will pray for those who had hurt you?

His friends went and did as God commanded them. (V9)

2. His friends committed mistake against God. But then when God ask them to repent, they obeyed. Are you obeying God with immediate repentance?

Then God looked at Job's face. Job had so many reasons to tell God that He can't forgive his friends. But he forgives them and prayed for them. God restored what Job lost.


3. Today the message is God wants you to throw away the bitterness that you carry against someone who had done something against you. You might have hundred reasons but God is not ready to hear that. He just wants you to forgive and pray for them because God wants to restore what you lost and He wants you to be blessed
