My love story!!!

My love story 

Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you – Psalms 51:15

 

Look at me a wanderer in this world

Having no sense of Purpose, I went wherever the wind took me

I ate everything, the earth gave me

A man of no choice, I became a slave to this treacherous world

In my ignorance, miserable state and incapable of taking care of myself, a story of love was born for me

A love story that overrides all others.

*

A man of noble birth fell in love with me a wandering pauper girl of no social standing

Wealthy as he is, and for the sake of this love, he traded his riches with my poverty

Gave up his joy to take my sorrow

Replaced my saddened heart with his cheerful smile

A smile that lightens the burdens of others and penetrates the marrows of hardened souls

He created in me a clean heart and renewed a right spirit within me (Psalm 51:10).

*

And at last, as I look back, I see what your love has achieved in my life

Your promise of love was true and you have been faithful to me in everything;

I wondered how far I would have wandered without your love

Like an Olive tree, thriving in your presence, I acknowledge my needs lie in you

My joy and happiness is complete in you

My spiritual, physical, financial, educational and social prosperity has seen its foundation in you, my love.

*

And as long as thou give me breathe and for the sake of our love story

Unseal my lips, oh Lord (JESUS), that my mouth may praise you [(Always) Psalm 51:15]

For I depend on you!!!  AMEN.

What if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you?

Matthew 18:20

"For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them".

 

I don't know if you have also given thought to these words of Jesus. I believe like myself, we have held on to the truth that the Lord is present always when we gather, which is the absolute truth that cannot be denied. But beloved, lets turn the other side of the coin and see what is there too.

Our faith in the above passage should cause us to ask the question, whenever we gather as people of God to worship, do we really make room for Jesus?

Have we thought of where Jesus will sit?

What would he say about us?

What would we tell him in return?

How do we dress to meet and dine with him?

Did I hear someone say "are these questions relevant?" What would you do if you knew the person who sat by you last service meeting was Jesus himself?

Psalm 34:15 says " The eyes of the LORD watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help." (see also 1 Peter 3:12)

 Obviously you haven't given a thought to this? What if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you?

Each day, the LORD promises to be with us even unto the end of the world (Matthew 28: 20) and has assured to dine with us in his Kingdom. You can't afford to give a blind eye  to these statements or take them lightly. Jesus has already been there in our congregational services and as surely as we continue to meet as followers, He will be present each time. The question is, how will you act next time you are in worship with Jesus by your sideWhat if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you

 

Psalm 33:4 - For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does.

The Bible behind closed doors!!!


2 Corinthians 4:7-15 (NLT)

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 10 Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. 11 Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. 12 So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you. 13 But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.”  14 We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. 15 All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.

 

 

So I was inspired by Bobby Dockey’s article on “taking the Bible out of the Church House”, where he talked about applying God’s word in our daily lives, boldly proclaiming God’s word to all as well as confronting the evils of this world with God’s word.  He also expressed how most of the time, the Bible is kept and opened only in church and only on Sundays

 

The verse 7 of the above passage trucks me and as I read on to the down verses, I discovered something which I can’t but share with others.  I asked myself why we then keep the Bible behind closed doors.  As baptized children of God, there is a light that is shining in our hearts because we have been raised together with the light of the world- Jesus Christ  (John 8:12) unless we were not baptized by immersion as demonstrated in Acts 8:  36-39

 

 Yes, we may be fragile clays but God’s treasure (Jesus Christ, the Word of God and light of the world) is in us. And this is nothing but the amazing power of God manifested in us. As such whenever we feel like we are pressed, perplexed, hunted down, knocked down and in constant danger of facing death each day, that we try to go out and preach God’s word, make effort to live as prescribed by God’s word or better still attempt to fight worldly desires and evil with God’s word, let us remember in the midst of the discouragement that the world brings us, that: we can’t get crushed, should not be despaired, don’t feel abandoned by God and know we will never be destroyed. You ask why? J Because we serve Jesus himself, the word and treasure of God

 

 So beloved, if you have the same kind of faith like I do and like all the people of God around the world, then get “out” the Bible behind the closed door of your heart, room, office chamber, church, etc. and freely live God’s word as you proclaim it to all and confront any weakness the world may present with God’s Word (Jesus). The word that you have as your code of ethics- the Bible!!!
