Praises –

66:
Take what is yours and go your way. 
I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. 
Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things?
Or is your eye evil because I am good?
So the last will be the first, and the first last. 
For many are called, but few are chosen.

Matthew 20:14-16
Is it not lawful for Me to do what I wish with My own things?

My God and my King 
How excellent is Your Name in all the earth

I am speechless and in awe
For words have failed me
I talk too much, and listen less
But I am ready to keep quiet and listen 

The Heavens are Yours and the earth is Yours too
The world and all its fullness, You have founded them
You have a mighty arm

Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Your throne
Your Mercy and Truth are the building blocks in our lives 
Blessed are the saints who knows the Joy of the Lord
They walk in the Your light which never goes out

For You Lord God are the glory of their strength 
And in Your favour our strength is exalted 

You are my shield and exceedingly great reward
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

Glorify His name especially in the bad weathers
His promises are trustworthy all the time

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

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!

Praises –

64:

'Do not trust in a neighbour [because of the moral corruption in the land]; 
Do not have confidence in a friend. 
Guard the doors of your mouth From her who lies in your bosom. 
For the son dishonours the father and treats him contemptuously, 
The daughter rises up [in hostility] against her mother, 
The daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— 
A man’s enemies are the men (members) of his own household. 
But as for me, I will look expectantly for the Lord and with confidence in Him 
I will keep watch; I will wait [with confident expectation] for the God of my salvation. 
My God will hear me. '

Micah 7 : 5-7 AMP
Edited in Prisma app
In the Lord I put my trust

Sing to the Lord a new song
And His praise from the ends of the earth

Let all who dwell in the land of the living 
sing a new song  

Let all shout from the top of the mountains 
and give glory to the Lord
 
And declare His praise through all generations
For the Lord is good

The Lord our God shall go forth like a Mighty Man 
He makes a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert

How excellent is Your Name in all the earth
Who has set Your glory above the Heavens!

When I consider the works of Your Hand
And look at the sky, and everything in  the world 

You are the source of light 
How excellent is Your Name

For there is no one like You
The Lord our God is a Holy One 

Creator of the world and everything in it, our King
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

Secure yourself to the amazing Father
and the Lord of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Walk in His promises for Your life
Write them down

Say them out loud to yourself or anyone who will listen

Glorify His name especially in the bad weathers
His promises are trustworthy all the time

Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

Say to your brethren, ‘My people,’
And to your sisters, ‘Mercy is shown’
Hosea 2:1

Welcome to the world of learning to live life in Christ Jesus. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

As I continue the Book of 1 Corinthians chapter One

Grace, always comes first before peace
Grace, is spontaneous
No planning and it is natural and free 
A gift unmerited 

Oh, the divine favour of God 
God is good 

In His mercy 
The last will get the same as the first 
We are all called but only few will be chosen
The divine favour unmerited 

Lord Jesus Christ…

Oh, Lord of all 
King of all Kings 
Honour to the Name that is above all names
And every knee will bow to the Name of 
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

Enriched in everything

Looking at the Corithin Christians
They were indeed gifted in all things 
Yet the flesh overpowers the spirit 
The carnal mind must tamed  

Gifted yet carnal 
The spirit within you is stronger than the flesh
The gifts are nothing unless they are laid at the feet of the Lord 
With thanksgiving in our hearts 
For all gifts are vapour that vanishes 
When we hold too tight

They are nothing and meaningless without the 
dedication and thanksgiving to the Lord 

For it is nothing without the Lord 
It is a vapour and grasping of the wind 
So let bring it to the Lord and sanctify it to our Father 
Who has richly bless us 

And while we eagerly wait for the revelation of the Lord

Because God is gracious, 
The Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you 
He will be exalted that He may have mercy on you
For the Lord God is justice 
Bless are all those who wait in Him

Isaiah 30:18 

Is it not wonderful that God chooses us not the other way round.

God who choose Corinth will see that the weak points are made stronger in the Lord. In the end the Corinth and also us will all appear as blameless before the Lord Jesus Christ

Because God is forever faithful 
One sees Jesus in every verse of the first ten verses
One wonders why…

One sees the cure to spiritual growth is Jesus Christ 
So Paul lets the Corinth and us take our focus off the problem 
To look at the Name that is above all names
Jesus, Jesus forever faithful 
Forever the same

The Lord reigns
Let the whole earth rejoices
Clouds and darkness surrounds Him
Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of His throne
Fire goes before Him 
And its burns up all His enemy around
The Lord reigns

I came across this coffee acronym and I love it.

Offers

For 
Everyone
Everywhere

So drink your coffee with pleasure and guilt free 🙂
