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 - 35 (YOU WILL BE SATISFIED WITH GOD'S LOVE AND GOODNESS)



“So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water; and putting it on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.” – Genesis 21:14

In Genesis 35:23-26 we could read about the twelve sons of Jacob. The count includes the sons that he got through the maidservants of Leah and Rachel. Even Abraham got a son through the maidservant of Sarah. But then one day as God asked Abraham to do as Sarah said, he sent Hagar and his son away. 

We read in Bible that God has blessed Abraham in everything. He had so much of wealth and blessings. But then when he sent his own son and Hagar away, he just gave bread and a skin of water. He should have given so many things to Hagar and his son but he failed to do that. Soon they were in the verge of death and she wept. Hearing the voice of her son, God interfered and made her see a well of water.  

Abraham gave Hagar skin of water but God gave her well of water. That’s God’s love! His love upon you is everlasting and He never leaves you nor forsake you. 

1.     You will be satisfied with God’s Love.

Someone out there, you are ditched by someone whom you had loved and trusted. You are thrown out after being used for selfish reasons. You lost everything and standing without anything. Today God wants me to tell you that He will satisfy you with His love. God has started to fulfil His will upon your life and He wants you to know that He cares for you and He has greater plans regarding your future. You will be satisfied with My love says God to you. As God made the son of Hagar a great nation, He will also raise you in front of the one who betrayed and ditched you.

2.     You will be satisfied with God’s goodness.

Hagar wandered in the wilderness and was in tears. God made her to live. You might be longing for some blessings that you lack in your life. You might have lost hope about your future. You will be satisfied with My goodness says God to you.

GUEST ARTICLE -15 (THOUGHTS BY Ms. JERINA JOY)



FALLING? NO WORRIES. RISE UP!
When we were a toddler, can you imagine how many times we would've fallen before learning how to walk? We would've never learned to walk without falling. Though we fell we rose up, again and again until we walked. So, I would really like to encourage you today "RISE UP". 

It doesn't matter how many times you've fallen or how badly you've fallen, I want to give you a hope that today when you rise, you will see the change, make a difference. 

It is heart wrenching when we fail in our studies, lose hope when we don't get a job or fall in to a particular sin again and again, it's hard; believe me I've been there. But there is hope in Christ. Hold to that, have confidence in Christ and Rise Up. 

For the righteous falls seven times and rises again (Proverbs 24:16).

SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE

Before the start of a heat, an Athlete always puts her head down. But when the gun shot is heard, she rises with power, runs with all her strength and crosses the finish line. Same way, the circumstances of our life may put our head down. But when our time comes, we rise with power, run our race with strength from above and cross the barriers of our life. So, wait till the power of God urges you to rise.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE HEAVENLY KING

Christ said "Ask and it shall be given unto you". But how many of us beg instead of asking? God has made us his Children and He is the king of all The Earth. Imagine a Prince or Princess of a country. They don't beg their father the King, but whatever they ask is given to them. If the Prince or Princess ask something valuable, it takes time for the King to bring it from another country or to find it. Yet the King finds it and gives it to his loving heir. 

We are children of The King of Kings. Will we lack any good thing? An earthly King may not be able to give his heir everything but our Heavenly King can provide His children according to His riches in glory. So, let's ask as a Prince or Princess would ask their father.

BE HUMBLE
There is a quote that goes like this 'When you don't have it, you don't have it; When you think you have it, you don't have it'. Humility is never found in those who compel themselves to be humble. I think humility is the involuntary thought of acknowledging God whenever we are appreciated. Being proud is not only about boasting about yourself, it has so many other things too. For example, there are people who are proud about their lineage, their family and surprisingly there are people who are proud about the fact that they are Christians. 

But do we understand that the very breath, the heartbeat, the motor functions that we do is only because of the wonderful Grace of God? Do we realise that we are His children because He chose us before the foundation of the Earth? It is human nature to be proud of our Country, our lineage, our family. But those things should never make us feel superior, rather it should make us humble by the acknowledgement of the Grace that has been bestowed upon us.

We all want to be leaders. But, are we ready to clean the dirty feet of others without crumpling our face? A Real leader (May it be workplace, Church or home) does not turn his face away from the dirt of his follower. Rather, they clean it. Not with a resigned, accusing, fault finding heart but with humility that comes out of deep love.
