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

GOD WILL SATISFY YOU WITH HIS GOODNESS



“…And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.” – Jeremiah 31:14

Years back one of my colleague’s dad met with an accident. He was riding his bike on a day when a steel sheet of a bus top from a bus that had crossed him flew and hit him on his neck. He fell down and was rushed to hospital. On the way in the ambulance he was vomiting blood and there was no hope that he would live. 

Doctors diagnosed that he had blood clots in several parts of his head and they decided to do an operation by opening his skull. His family decided to arrange money for the operation and took measures for it. 

My colleague thought of getting prayed and so she went to someone to get prayed. As she was going, she prayed to God to speak to her. As the person begun to pray, God spoke to her and said to her that her father will get well within 36 hours and all the blood clots will vanish.
She believed what God said and told all her family members not to arrange money for the operation as her father will be alright. Her family members also believed God’s word. They prayed fervently. As God promised, the doctors shifted her father to general ward from ICU within 36 hours as her father’s health got improved. Within few days God also healed him completely without any blood clots. 

Today you might be going through a situation that gives you so much pain and you might be shedding tears because that. Today God says to you that He will be your hope in the hopeless situation. You will be satisfied by My goodness says God to you. 

People might come against you. Diseases might threaten you. Failures and struggles might have given you so much pain. You are in a hopeless situation. Do not get discouraged. Everything will change. God will do that for you. As God healed her father and did a miracle in their life, he will do the same in your life. 

My dear young friends, you will be satisfied with God’s goodness and you will not perish. God will answer your tears. 

Hannah was barren. Her life was miserable and filled with tears. One day she went to God’s presence and prayed pouring her heart out. God heard her prayers, remembered her and blessed her. 

God has not forgotten you. He has heard your prayers and He will bless you richly. He will not forsake you. Your life situation will change. 

“There is hope in your future, says the Lord…” - Jeremiah 31:17

GHG SHORT DEVOTIONALS - 31 (WHEN YOU NEED MORE, ASK YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER)




“…And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more!” – 2 Samuel 12:8

Look at the heart of God here! He has blessed David with kingdom and so many other blessings. David went by his own desire against God and committed a sin. Then God spoke to David through Nathan. The verse reveals the heart of a Father who had a longing to bless His children. Also, it reveals the pain a Father carries when His children go astray following their own desires. 

1.     Remember all ways are not God’s ways.

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.” – James 1:14

David walked according to his own desire on that situation and it had led him to many troubles. It could have taken his life if God would have not forgiven him. Do not walk according to your own desires. Find God’s will in your life and stay in it. It will bring blessings in your life and God’s protection will rest upon you.

2.     Your Heavenly Father knows what you need.

“…be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5

God has chosen you as His children and He is with you. You are saved by His blood. This itself is a great blessing. Also, He knows what you need and has given you all the blessings. Thank God for what you have. Do not run behind worldly pleasures, money and fame. Be content with the blessings your Heavenly Father has given you.

3.     If you need more, ask your Heavenly Father.

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!" - Matthew 7:11

God said to David that if he had needed more blessings, He would have given that to him. That is God’s heart. He wants to give you more. If you are not satisfied with what you have and if you need something more, do ask God. There is nothing wrong to tell your Father your heart’s desires. But do not try to do anything by your own self. Ask God and wait. Hezekiah wept bitterly and asked God to remember him as he wanted to live for more years. God found it acceptable and gave him fifteen more years.  God will do give you what you ask if it is acceptable in His sight. Wait for God and surely, He will bless you.
