Focus on God the giver of true and holy blessings

 

One of the various reasons why people miss out on their blessings from the Lord God is that they are not focused on him. Instead they focus on the blessings they desire. I’m not saying that problems are too small nor that you should ignore fixing them. But rather the focus must be right. Some of the blessings may about healing, recovery from debt, healing of the mind and repairing of broken relationships.  Now as people pray and don’t yet see their blessing manifest, they lose heart. This is because the Devil makes their problem appear bigger than it really is. If your focus is on Christ Jesus the Savior of the world and his kingdom, you got priorities right. And if you got your priorities right you are much closer to your miracle or blessings than without that focus. Otherwise its easy to get overwhelmed by the cares and worries of life and miss your blessings due your lack of focus on the Lord God.

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:31-33)

Revelation Song with lyrics (Video)

 

Lyrics:

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.
Holy, Holy is He.
Sing a new song to him who sits on
heaven’s mercy seat.

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.
Holy, Holy is He.
Sing a new song to him who sits on
heaven’s mercy seat.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.
With all creation I sing,
“Praise to the King of kings.
You are my everything,
and I will adore You.”

Clothed in rainbows of living color,
flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder,
blessing and honor,
strength and glory and power be
to You, the only wise King.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.
With all creation I sing,
“Praise to the King of kings.
You are my everything,
and I will adore You.”

Filled with wonder,
awestruck wonder
at the mention of Your name.
Jesus, Your name is power,
breath, and living water.
Such a marvelous mystery.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.
With all creation I sing,
“Praise to the King of kings.
You are my everything,
and I will adore You.”

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.
Yeah, Yeah!
With all creation I sing,
“Praise to the King of kings.
You are my everything,
and I will adore You.”

 

 

Bible verses:

After this I looked, and lo, in heaven an open door! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up hither, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and lo, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne! And he who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald. Round the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads. From the throne issue flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal.

And round the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all round and within, and day and night they never cease to sing,

“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
who was and is and is to come!”

And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever; they cast their crowns before the throne, singing,

11 “Worthy art thou, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for thou didst create all things,
and by thy will they existed and were created.”

(Revelation 4:1-11)

 

I Will Exalt The One Who Lifted Me (Video)

 

Lyrics:

What can I say? What can I do?
What can I bring to offer You?
There is no gold, no precious pearl,
nothing on earth that compares to You.

Lord, here I stand with empty hands.

I will exalt the one who lifted me
out of the miry clay to heights of eagle’s wings.
Words cannot express. All I know is this:
You changed me. You changed me.

I will remember how I used to be.
I was so bound, but now I’m free.
I will exalt the one who lifted me.

I’ve never known a father like You,
a love that is strong, so gentle and true.
You hold me close, just like a child.
Safe in Your arms, there is no doubt.
This is my place. This is the way.

I will exalt the one who lifted me
out of the miry clay to heights of eagle’s wings.
Words cannot express. All I know is this:
You changed me. You changed me.

I can remember how I used to be.
I was so bound, but now I’m free.
I will exalt the one who lifted me.

 

 

Seek good, and not evil

God

 

Seek good, and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, as you have said. (Amos 5:14)

Psalm 115 (To Your Name O Lord Give Glory)

1 Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
Why should the nations say,“Where is their God?”

Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see.
They have ears, but do not hear; noses, but do not smell.
They have hands, but do not feel; feet, but do not walk;
    and they do not make a sound in their throat.
Those who make them become like them; so do all who trust in them.

O Israel, trust in the Lord! He is their help and their shield.
10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LordHe is their help and their shield.
11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the LordHe is their help and their shield.
12 The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron;
13 he will bless those who fear the Lord, both the small and the great.

14 May the Lord give you increase, you and your children!
15 May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth!
16 The heavens are the Lord‘s heavens, but the earth he has given to the children of man.

17 The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any who go down into silence.
18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord!

 

Reflection on Psalm 115:

The Lord God respects his Holy Name because is faithful and ever-loving. There is no need for unbelievers to question where God is. Because the answer is already given; God is in heaven and does whatever he wishes. The Lord is not like any false god of whom people make idols. He is genuine and everlasting. His dominion is from age to age. Idols of false gods are useless because they don’t have the sense of hearing nor the sense of taste and neither can they see. So shallow are false idols that they cannot even walk. As lifeless as these idols are, so is the effect of putting hope in them. Avoid all such detestable idols. Let no material object nor any lust of any kind nor any thought pattern from the sinful world become a false idol to you!

The nation of Israel not matter what their current state is still called to trust in the Lord God and so are their priests; the household of Aaron. All those who trust in the Lord must remember he is the help and the shield of Israel and all believers when they trust in him. The Lord won’t forever forget the household of Israel nor that of Aaron the high priest of Israel, as per the law of Moses. In due time, he will turn their hearts back to him. But do remember, that God’s favour is not limited to them alone but is for all people who respectfully fear the Lord even if they are from the most remote parts of the earth. God’s mercy is available for all nations, tribes, language groups and races of the earth.

Always seek the blessing of God the everlasting One for yourself and your children. Because he is Great and has made heaven and earth. All of heaven belongs to the Lord of all the holy angels. But he has given mankind the earth, not as a possession but for stewardship, so that they glorify HIM in their thoughts, words and deeds while on earth.

Make good use of the time when you are alive on earth. Because for those who are dead, especially those who are dead in spirit to the will of God, there no time later to praise the Lord. While for those who are righteous in Christ at the time of their death are more alive than ever. They will praise the Lord in eternity which has God’s living light.

As for those of us who are still living on earth, lets us bless and praise the Lord forever and ever. Praise the Lord.

 

Verses for further reflection:

  1. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. (1 John 5:21)
  2. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8)
  3. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. (Colossians 3:5)
  4. Lest you be wise in your own sight, I want you to understand this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”; “and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.” (Romans 11: 25-27)
  5. After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7: 9-10)

The Lord is your Father (Reflection)

father

Have you called the Lord God as your Father? You are the handiwork of the Lord and he has called you by your name. A good father knows the names of his sons and daughters. God goes beyond that as your name is carved on the palm of his hand. So knowing all this value your life in Christ. It’s been given to you by the Lord your Father.

And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. (1 John 5:11)

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. (1 Corinthians 8:6)

Some fear the word father even though they are now adults themselves. It may sound strange but some people dislike the word father. Because either they were insulted and abused by their earthly fathers. While for some, their father’s were never there for them. As a result they don’t really feel the love, courage and respect associated with the word father. I’ve seen and met people who are nice to talk to but when you mention their father they don’t know how to react. The Lord is unlike any such bad fathers. He is the perfect father anyone could ever get.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. (Romans 8:28-29)

The Lord is compassionate towards those who fear him. This fear is not about being a coward. This fear is about being brave enough to respect the Lord in one’s own thought, words and actions no matter how much the world convinces you to not respect the Lord in any way.

Never ever be a fatherless Christian. Don’t submit to worthless traditions that keep you away from calling God your father. No other person can claim to the right of being your Father in heaven except for the Lord God.

And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. (Matthew 23:9)

All those who try to keep you from God our Father in Jesus Christ, will have to answer for their sins at the Final Judgement to God himself. Even Jesus won’t be defending such vile and unrepentant individuals who seduce, bribe, threaten or speak lies to take the people away from the Lord God our Father. Personally, I dislike all tempters and mischief makers who put walls between relationships of married couples, families and most importantly all believers and God.

Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. (Mark 9:42)

Every child has a right to ask his or her father good things. I’ve noticed that even the mob ensures that their young ones are well fed and well dressed. Obviously no good father will give his child foolish thing. The Lord God being your father is able to provide all good things to those who believe in him. Ask with pure motives and see heavens bounty open in favor to you.

 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?  If you then, who are 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 7:7-10)

The relationship between you and the Lord must be of love and honor. God is faithful and just, so he never will fail in his part of the relationship. It’s your side of the relationship that you must be diligent upon. A common mistake that people make is that they claim to love the Lord whom they don’t see but hate those at home and church. Your love for God is not just how you feel towards the Lord but also how you love one another. Let God himself direct you in all right conduct.

Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you,  and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints. (1 Thessalonians 3: 11-13)

The Lord God is your Father to love, serve and live for now and forever!
