Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'The Lord says: 
“These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, 
but their hearts are far from me. 
Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught. 
Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; 
the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” '

Isaiah 29:13-14

The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever

As I look at Paul sitting writing his letter to the Corinth in response to what he read.  I am reminded and inspired by 1 Corinthians 2 to

Pause and wonder! 

Here I was trying to get some routine going. A week of no routine makes the body relax. 

As I pause, God reveals that it not about routines it is always about relationship

Yes I pause and wonder at our God
The Father is always faithful 
The Father loves it when we pause 
The Father loves it when we acknowledge with thanksgiving and praise to Him

So I wonder 

Am I flexible around Him or do I move further away because He does not fit into my box

He never leaves and He is always there 
Yes I pause and wonder at the beauty around me 
Looking at the sky 
Relationship is a tough cookie to crack and to maintain
But it is worth it as we see the glory of God 
Magnify in our lives

To use the language of Scripture 

Pause and wonder!

Yes I pause and wonder 

Wonder at the amazing God we serve 
Wonder as the light shines in the darkness

Yes I pause and wonder 

Pause and see the darkness becoming light 
Pause and see the storm become still at the sound of His voice 
Pause and bask in His glory
Pause and let your heart be moved towards Him 

Wonder at how He cleans the temple 
Pause and see what He is doing in the temple 
For when He comes to the temple
It never remains the same 
The money, or the worry and the treasures of the world 
He overturns all the tables

Pause and wonder and see that He is bigger than everything 
Pause and be still in His Presence as you wonder at how awesome our God is

Yes Pause and wonder 
For eyes have not seen nor has the mind comprehend the greatness of our God 
Yes pause for God has revealed every mystery to us through His Spirit
 
Jesus Christ, The Gospel reveals this glorious thing that is on Earth as it is in Heaven 
Yes Pause and wonder

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'The Lord God is the one who brings together all the Israelite people who are in exile . 
He says, ‘I will continue to bring more people to join with them.’ '

Isaiah 56:8

I am away this first week of August and as I sit on the last day of the month of July writing. I wanted to thank you for all the encouragement and the blessing you are to me when you visit, like and comment. Thank you. 

Blessings to you!

The journey with Paul continues… In 1 Corinthians:

Glory only to the Lord Jesus Christ: as I read verses twenty-six to thirty one

You see your calling…

Think about those words to the corinth 
Paul calls the Corinthians to look in the mirror 
God has not chosen them because of their wisdom 
Nor did He choose because of the flesh 

Oh the FLESH - you are mighty nor the noble
The upside down kingdom

Not one is chosen because of the flesh…
The flesh is weak and feeble 
It does decay with time
It also sleeps when you don't need it to 

And so Paul continues

God has chosen the foolish things of the world…

Paul reminds them and brings them back to earth 
Sometimes the flesh forgets and think it is strong 
It can do all things by itself
 
But NO, the word of God is alive 
It reminds us of the ways of the Lord 
It encourages us 
It convicts us 
Sometimes we forget that it not by works
That God is the one that chooses us 
 
I do love the way Paul brings the staff down so to speak: 
 
The Shepherd is the Shepherd and you are the sheep
He choose you not because you are great 
He choose you not because of your nobility
He chooses because He is great

The foolish things in the world is a treasure to God 
He is the Creator of the world 
He does not replicate from an object 
He creates the object itself into a jewellery
Things that are lost and rubbish in the world 

It is good that God doesn’t choose us because we are in the shelf, ready and on display for the world

No, that is not our GOD but our 
God chooses the ones with cobwebs 
The ones hidden and out of place 
The ones that have no use to human race anymore 
Those are the ones He chooses 
WHY?
Because GOD is Great!
And He puts to shame the wise

The upside down Kingdom
The mind cannot fathom it 
 
He calls the weak and ignorant FIRST 
It is also not an exclusive club
Don’t be wise 
For He also calls the Shepard FIRST 
Then the wise men 

Fishermen FIRST (the disciples) then the educated like Paul
This is the wisdom of God and it is not exclusive 
Nor is it set on stones 

His ways are not our ways 
Neither is His thoughts our thoughts 
Do not be wise in your own eyes 
For God is great

“Treasure Trove of Information”

'Remember to stay alert and hold firmly to all that you believe. 
Be mighty and full of courage. 
Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do. '

1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Morning sunrise – view from my kitchen
Don’t forget 
The Saviour and God our Father 
Has given us life 

Never forget that our strength is not man made 
That fades like a vapour
 
But remember that the God of our Saviour Jesus Christ 
Is the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever 

Remember that the enemy is only here to KILL, STEAL and DESTROY 
Always be alert 
For as long as you are in the presence of the Lord 
He is the only One that prepares a table 
A feast as the enemies watches 
His Joy overflows 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Happy First Month!

Hi and welcome to the vault. Hope you had a good weekend. My weekend was in anticipation of the week. And as I pack my suitcase and think about what one needs for camping, minimal Miss Vandi is what you need. My mind goes back to the youth as they are very much excited. The resilience has been built up for the future.

And all I kept thinking of the kids and how they would be feeling. Excited, emotional and what to wear or how to behave. Praying that they have the peace that surpasses all understanding. Above all that God breaks through to them. 

This week, I embark on a journey not alone but with my church family to be a child of God and serve the youth. We are going on a journey together, that is exciting.

I will be on a break this week and just be present at that moment. 

Below is a link, if you want to know more about New DAY in the UK. 

https://www.newdaygeneration.org

Just one thing as you go about your day to day, prayers warriors, children of God: Pray that the kids will have an amazing time and God will break through to each of them. They will be the light everywhere they go. Pray as the spirit leads you. Thank you and God bless you. 

Thank you for stopping by,  Sorry If I don’t reply as we told the kids no phone, guess what, we must abide by the rules too. God help us! 

As I sit and write, Isaiah inspired me to praise the Lord, be blessed this week and the remaining month and years to come.

Praise the Father 
Praise the Son 
Praise the Spirit 
Praise the Three in ONE 
That joins the body as one 

Praise the Lord 
Our God that would rend the Heavens 
To come down!

Praise the Lord our God  
That the mountains will shake at His presence 
That the nations may tremble at His presence

Praise the Lord 
That God always does awesome things 
Which we did not expect
'For from days of old no one has heard, 
nor has ear perceived, 
Nor has the eye seen a God besides You, 
Who works and acts in behalf of the one who [gladly] waits for Him. 
You meet him who rejoices in doing that which is morally right, 
Who remembers You in Your ways. 
Indeed, You were angry, for we sinned; 
We have long continued in our sins [prolonging Your anger]. 
And shall we be saved [under such circumstances]? '

Isaiah 64:4-5 AMP
Oh dear, look around. It is time for me to say goodbye but... hope to see you again.

Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

May your week be full of The Joy of the Lord
I praise God for your life
May He teach you
His way as you walk in His foot path
In the Name of Jesus
Amen

Remember,
We cannot control what happens around us, 
but we can control our responses.
Be bless and know that the Lord loves you
Lots of Love - Hannah

And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 
'However, 
I consider my life worth nothing to me; 
my only aim is to finish the race and 
complete the task the Lord Jesus has given 
me—the task of testifying to the 
good news of God’s grace. '
Acts 20:24 NIV

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, 
but Christ lives in me. 
The life I now live in the body, 
I live by faith in the Son of God, 
who loved me and gave himself for me. 
I do not set aside the grace of God, 
for if righteousness could be gained through the law, 
Christ died for nothing!”'

Galatians 2:20-21 NIV

Hello, blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ.

I thank God for you today
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ 
The Father of glory gives you the spirit of 
wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him

Bless you 
May the Lord Keep you and 
May His Face shine upon you 


What is man? 
Lord God that You should be mindful of.

The process of life  
Is learning daily to walk and allow grace to be part of it 
It is not about works

The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever

As I look at Paul sitting writing his letter to the Corinth in response to what he read. I am reminded that we are not alone in the walk of life. It so happens that at random nothing is random, as I was walking, the podcast of NT Wright was about the Cross which made me sit and look at what Paul was talking about.

1 Corinthians 1:18: For the message of the cross…

The message of the Cross
Words, oh words of men 
Wisdom of men 
Words only words does not have the effect of the cross
 
Let not our wisdom be the factor of our deliverance 
Let not filter or water down the message to go through 
For the words are not ours 
The effect does not belong to us
For the Lord our Father chooses
 
And always remember that 
The foolish man will think what he wants to think 

Wisdom will always excel folly 
As light excels darkness 
The wise man’s eyes is in his head
But the fool walks in darkness
Ecclesiastes 2:13

The gospel is the message of the Cross
Preaching anything else is not the gospel
The gospel is NOT about preaching the 
High moral standard… or 
universal fatherhood of God… or
brotherhood of man

The message – was at the time a cruel way to die like an electric chair but much worse than that! Can you imagine that? 

Oh let sit and look at the cross, come and see the Lord 

For it was a cruel, humiliating, unrelenting instrument of death – hence why Paul added

…. is foolishness to those who are perishing

For they cannot see beyond the Now 
For darkness has covered there sight 
So they mocked Him 
And will continue to mock His followers…
But do take heart 
For God did save Him 
And He did overcame it

To us who are being saved it is the power of God

The power that gives us strength 
The power that lets us see beyond the now 
The power that humbles our thinking into knowing that 
He is the Lord and King 

They both describe work in progress and each person moves towards one or the other. Saved or foolishness 

How can one look at the cross without the grace of God…
For without the power of God it is foolishness 
At the cross friendship is formed 
Because of the Cross 
Sin and death are both conquered 
For He is RISEN!

As I walk with Paul this week, I begin to understand life, well not as a whole but a little of it. 

Paul shows that life is not alone 

The power of the body of Christ on the Cross 
The Cross before he carried it
Before we even know what is going to happen  
Jesus took the place of Barabbas and all of us
Jesus took the place of our sins 
What evil has He done?....
Expect to LOVE us 

He was mocked and they took the purple off Him
So we would become children of God 
So we would be sons and daughters 
Having the rights to call God our Father 

The King on the Cross 
Shows us to cry for the generations 
For the days to come when they will need to know God 
Through Him we are one 
We become family through the Lord 

At the Cross, 
It is finished!

Paul shows us what Isaiah wanted us to know:  Isaiah 29: 14 what God says about the wisdom of men

  • About spiritual matter God opposes the wisdom of men
  • He will destroy the wisdom of men and not bow down to them.

The one clear point is that no one can do what Jesus has just done

Worthy is the Lamb 
The Lamb that is worthy to take the scroll
The Lamb that is worthy to direct our footsteps 
The Lamb that is worthy to lead the way of life 

And to open the seals of the scroll

For He was slain to redeem us to God by His blood
Through Him we are all made kings and priests to our God 
Through Him we are now sons and daughters 
Through Him we shall reign on the earth

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain 

To receive power and riches and wisdom 
And strength and honour and glory and blessing!
Worthy is the Lamb who sits on the throne
Forever and ever!
