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 - 19 (BE FILLED WITH THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST)

Acts 3:8  And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

A certain man who was lame from his mother's womb entered into the temple walking by himself praising God. He received the healing through Peter.

1. There were many who were outside the church without knowing the true God, struggling and limping with pain and hurt. You are called by God to lead them to salvation and bring them into God's fold.

To do that, what you need?

Acts 3:6 (NKJV)  Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."

2. You need not have material or financial blessings but all you need is the fullness of Christ in your life to bring change into someone's life for the glory of God.

What you should do to have the fullness of Christ in you?

3. Save yourself from this perverse,  untoward and ungodly generation (Acts 2:40) Do not yield yourself into worldly temptation. Stand out for God and Godly things.

4. When you have the fullness of Christ, you will have the faith that comes through Him.(Acts 3:16)Through the faith God gives, you can bring God's healing into the lives of others.
May God use you for His glory and may you carry the fullness of Christ within you all the days of your life.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 18 (GOD WANTS YOU TO RETURN BACK TO HIM)

Luke 15:4 “ What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?”

1.      God’s heart aches for you. The aching Jesus has that you should not perish in the hands of devil whom you have chosen, rejecting Jesus; the aching He has, seeing the condition of your mind which is tormented by evil thoughts; the aching He has, knowing that you have lost all the peace in your heart – this aching is much more than the joy and happiness He has for the spiritual people who stand in and with Him.

How long will the shepherd look for the lost sheep? It is beautifully said in Luke 15:4. It is not just from morning to night, it is not for a day or two, and it is not for some time alone. Bible says, the shepherd will search for the sheep till he finds it.

2.      The only longing of God’s heart is that you have to repent. His hands are stretched towards you even at this moment. He longs for you to return back to Him because you belong to Him, and only to Him.

What will a shepherd do after finding the sheep? Luke 15:5 “And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.”

If you think with your logical mind, we may find so many ways to bring back the lost sheep. 1. It can be carried on the hip, 2. It can be carried in the arms, 3. It can be brought back by putting a thread on its neck and holding the thread by hand or 4. It can be brought by means of beating with a stick (It’s right to do that as the sheep went astray). But what does Jesus Christ, the good shepherd do? Luke 15:5 says that He will carry it on His shoulders.

3.      Even today God loves you so much. If you surrender yourself to Him, He will give you back all that you have lost. You will be used for His glory. Before it becomes too late, return to Jesus.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 17 (BELIEVE IN GOD'S PROMISES)

Then the Lord said to Moses: "How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them? - Numbers 14:11 

When the people of Israel heard that the people who were in Canaan were like giants they were afraid and wept badly. They believed the false reports gave by few men who went to spy the land. They felt that it would be better if they go back to Egypt.

1.   You might be going through wilderness and you might feel like God’s promises were so far from getting fulfilled. Don’t get discouraged by looking at the situations and problems that are prevailing around you. Believe what God has said to you and look at the ways that God has led you beautifully in the past. God who brought you out of slavery will carry you to the Promised Land.

2.   Sometimes you may face wilderness between your past and the God’s promise that is ahead of you. But then God can change the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water. He will do that in your life too. The situations and troubles that you are facing today will definitely change.

What you should do to receive God’s blessings?

“because all these men who have seen My glory and the signs which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have put Me to the test now these ten times, and have not heeded My voice" - Numbers 14:22

God place a threshold on that day before the people of Israel. He says whoever tested Him more than ten times will not enter the Promised Land. What a sad situation! May be someone would have tested God just more than once than the threshold that God has placed before them but then even they would not have entered the promised land.

3.   Sometimes we lose our faith upon God and His promises. But then remember that we should not test our God. During the time of tribulations and trials, do not speak anything against God.

4.   God has a threshold and we never knew what is the threshold that God has for us. You can’t continue to dwell in sin for longer saying God’s grace will last longer in your life. If you are away from God, return to Him immediately. Because God wants to use you mightily for His glory.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 16 (GIVE PRIORITY TO GOD'S WILL IN YOUR LIFE)

And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, "Lord, if you are willing, You can make me clean."- Luke 5:12

What a wonderful prayer this leper made! He is a leper. Bible says He was full of leprosy. He was thrown out from the society. No one wanted him. He was alone in a very desperate state. He never led a normal life. He needs a healing. He is desperately in need of healing. He believed that Jesus could heal him and so he came running to Jesus and fell on his face and begged Jesus. 

But the prayer was not a normal prayer. He should have prayed like Lord, heal me. He never prayed like that though he was in a desperate state. Even in that desperate state, that leper made a very beautiful prayer putting God’s will in front and his desire behind. He said Lord, if you are willing, make me clean. A submissive prayer completely surrendered to God’s will. A healing touch of Jesus would change his life completely. He knew that. But he gave importance to God’s will.

1.      How are we praying today? Are we putting our desperate needs before God’s will? Are we praying in a selfish way? Today God wants us to surrender to His will completely.

Jesus prayer was recorded in Luke 22:42 in which He had put God’s will in priority than His own wish. “…Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 


2.      You might be in a tough situation. You might be carrying a burden that you can’t able to bear. You need a miracle desperately. So you might be praying for it. But today Holy Spirit wanted me to say to you that you should pray for the fulfilment of God’s will in your life and not for the fulfilment of your wish. Your prayer should change. Do not run behind worldly blessings. Run for the fulfilment of God’s will in your life. God will definitely give you what you need and also you will be a blessing to many. God wants you to know that you are called for a special purpose.

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.

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 13 (GOD WILL GIVE YOU REST)

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

In Mark 5:2-19, we read about a man with an unclean spirit.

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.
