God's Unfailing Love

Just as a Mother's love never gives up on her child, God's love finds us out from our shame and sets us free
His love will refine us, punish us, push us, provide for us, save us. He so Loves us that he sent his only begotten Son Jesus to die for our sins. He so loves us that we will be forgiven time and time again until we ourselves cannot stand that sin anymore and feel stupid in repeating that sin. He so loves us that he will bring us near to destruction only so we can dramatically see his glory and fall upon our knees and worship him. He so loves us that he takes us through the wilderness  so when we get to the promised land we can experience joy and exalt him with our praises. Oh how He loves us even more especially when we cannot love ourselves. We cannot comprehend why God loves us, but when you feel His love, when you feel His spirit upon you, you cannot but fall tearfully and fearfully on your knees at His feet and proclaim that He is GOD

The God that Whispers; What an Awesome God

The Grand Canyon, Arizona; An art WHISPERED into existence by The Awesome God

Many times in this journey called life, we allow all of our minute, worthless problems cloud our minds and infect our bodies with worry that we forget what an awesome creator that we have. God is awesome. When I think deeply about his Creations and how us men were formed, it blows my mind and all i can do is reply with shouts of praise.

A proclaimed righteous man of the name of Job (Job 26) in the bible reminds us of the handiwork of this God;

God stretches the northern sky over empty space
    and hangs the earth on nothing.
He wraps the rain in his thick clouds,
    and the clouds don’t burst with the weight.
He covers the face of the moon,[c]
    shrouding it with his clouds.
10 He created the horizon when he separated the waters;
    he set the boundary between day and night.

These are just the beginning of all that he does,
    merely a whisper of his power.

In Exodus 15:8 it recounts how this awesome God delivered his people by parting the red sea

At the blast of your breath, 
    the waters piled up!
The surging waters stood straight like a wall;
    in the heart of the sea the deep waters became hard.

He just breathed. The great sea obeyed his breath.

Would you not want this God on your side? Imagine what will happen if He decides to shout, I shudder at the thought of the Rapture where the book of Revelation records that God will come back to this earth with a shout. He started with a whisper, creating the miracle of the earth, its firmaments and His most beloved; us.

"Lord I am content with your whispers, i do not want to wait for the last minute of the world to hear you shout, I will listen to the love of your whispers and I will Obey"

There is nothing else I can do but offer this heart, my heart completely to you.

His Grace, Oh but for the Grace of God...

Micah 7:9
I will be patient as the LORD punishes me, for I have sinned against him. But after that, he will take up my case and give me justice for all I have suffered from my enemies. The LORD will bring me into the light, and I will see his righteousness.

Have you ever known deep down in your spirit what you should not do according to the word of God? Regardless of that fact you went ahead and carried out that action(s). 

The year of 2011 was the year that God beckoned me to "draw closer to HIM and He will draw closer to me". last year i found the Brooklyn Tabernacle in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, NY and i have never looked back. I have chosen to drink of the Grace of God. As I asked God constantly in prayer to guide me, reveal my life purpose to me and to have a Holy spirit encounter, God began to mold and refine me gradually as i honestly dedicated my time and heart to Him. It was however this year 2012 that i began to know what it felt to walk and talk with Him via the Holy spirit. 

Regardless of this Grace that i feel strongly, i still sometimes give in to my flesh against the will of God, in fact most times in this past two months i have found myself running away from the tasks that He has given me, today being the worst flight to date.

Not to bore you with the long story of what happened to me today (will be another post for another day), i will cut the story short. 

"There is this particular co-worker that has been completely hostile to me regarding a stand off that occurred last month regardless of how i tried with all i had to "WWJD" (What Will Jesus Do) the situation. However, i got a revelation to pray for this person. I cried out to the Lord concerning this individual and vowed that i will not do anything for this person to doubt the grace and forgiveness of God, but I failed woefully with Today's incidence.

So the moral of this story is that "though we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" but His grace will sustain us through and through as long as we genuinely go back to that place of worship, "He is faithful and Just to forgive us"
