'And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? ' Matthew 16:26
Well well, another day, another week. I pray that your journey this week is full of adventure. As you know, miracles do happen everyday Also you are loved And you are a gift to the world. In the name of Jesus our Lord and Saviour, Amen
Thank you for indulging me in this process, life is a process and a series of it. But I do love it because I know that God walks with us. The vault is huge and let your imagination run wild. Where is this taking us? I ask myself this question all the time. In life we need to be questioning, so we can get answer. Come with me, we are going into the vault.
We learning something not new but will refresh our mind, memory and love. I call it
The 900 angle: The right angle
A little story: I did love maths in school, because my papa taught me a simple way and the teacher at school was teaching me a difficult way so my young mind taught. We see the angles in life everyday, angles that receives blesses from God and ones that do not bring us any joy. We need the wisdom of God to help us in our daily life, through Christ Jesus
So my 900, the line that goes up and makes it a ninety degrees. To know myself, I first need to know who I am in Christ and to know who He is to me.
So as we sit inside the vault today it is always good to sit down in awe and wonder at GOD who created us and yet He wants us to be in His presence. I find that fascinating and He will always find the one, so today looking up at who He is. He comes with many names and He is personal to you and to me but He is not private.
He is all powerful For you and I to be brave we need to know HIM We cannot speak about someone or the Almighty GOD if we have no clue who He is. Upwards GOD Here are some of the ways I see HIM among the many:
God is many things to each of us His teachings to us is unique and personal He says my sheep will hear my voice and listen He has enabled different ways to hear from HIM But we can never find it, if we never sit in His presence and marvel at the glory of God And know what He sounds like Listening to HIM, conversation is always two ways One speaks and one listens. Sometimes, I do forget and do all the talking and no listening. If I am talking then I am not listening, some days it is just good to sit with no agenda and know that He cares and all I need to find the rest with God alone. Come sit with Jesus, the amazing thing is He has the fire going and the meal ready for us to just come sit, eat and relax. We are all different and some of us will hear from GOD in a totally different way to another person Some it will be - in the quiet of our homes - in nature - in the busy place like the market place - a coffee shop I admire people who hear in the market place, my mind is always thinking too much so I need to quiet it down. But we all are His children and He speaks He loves us the way He built us, BUT Do we listen? Do we tune in to the right station? To get the right station we need fiddle with the knob until we get it right Are you turning the station? Are you looking? If you are then you will definitely find HIM How can I be so confident? Because God said so and He is not a man to lie.
ME, I mean US — HUMANS
I am human - the common phrase. I hope you are too, if not then welcome to the world human beings. For we are strange But we not animal Our Instincts are governed by our choices Our feelings and desires are subject to us
Yes we are humans and let talk about self love
My sheep will hear my voice, you cannot hear that voice if you don’t know HIM we need to know who He is to separate His voice from the other voices.
I tell you, so many voices in the midst of the busyness.
The storm, the earthquakes. The whisper will come in the quiet of our mind.
We all hear the phrase the oxygen mask. Well you are no good to anyone if the mask is not on and you are on the floor passed out. What good is that?
Self Love comes from knowing who God is, receiving and knowing that your identity is not found in man but what the LORD GOD says:
He says: Before the world was created I AM who I AM and He loved us and He choose us and I am not an accident and I am beautiful and wonderful made and It gives Him great pleasure to sit with us and He adopted us on purpose to be part of His family through Christ Jesus
Don’t know about you, but knowing this brings joy to my heart. And I will praise GOD for the glorious grace He has poured on each of us who belong to His dear SON.
Yes we are all annoying, well I know I am But as with family, the neighbours the flat line away from the centre Still talking about the 900 angle Straight across to looking back at the ninety making it one hundred and eighty, and right round three-sixty we have all manner of people around us You cannot say I love GOD yet hate the man in your 3600 angle We all have blind spot and that is why we are in the body To love, to cry, to hug (virtually) and also to be angry at the things that matters to us To show compassion, empathy, forgiveness because ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD
So my theory is this 900 angle: I need to look up and receive and then spread it at 900 and turn around in a circle to form a 3600angle always in the presence of GOD receiving His love and sharing it for I cannot give what I don’t have.
Be bless and know that you are blessed and highly favoured
Stay tuned with the LORD always.
