Follow the Visionary

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. Isaiah 55:8

We never give a thought that God doesn’t think like us.

Any visionaries thoughts are usually 5, 10 or 20 years ahead of everyone else thoughts and constantly evaluate where we are with respect to an end state, which is the vision.

God is the ultimate Visionary, who can foresee years to come far more than any other visionaries who ever lived or living or would ever live.

God’s Vision is meant to fulfill for sure and being in the thoughts of this God is awesome and assures success for our lives.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Beware of all positive thinking and positive attitude which is foolish and still leave us lost and stray away far from God’s higher thoughts.

Leaving our thoughts and craving for God’s thoughts for our lives put us on the success path and the destiny we are called to.

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

The United Nation

Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation.
Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation. Isaiah 51:2

Beginning of Abraham was entirely different from the beginning of Adam or Noah!

In case of Adam and in Noah, God blessed them to multiply.

Blessing on Adam: Gen 1:28

Blessing on Noah: Genesis 9:1-2, 7

But Abraham was not just blessed but was promised with a blessing of multiplication by God!

God wanted a race of people from every nation for Himself that believes in the finished work of The Cross of Jesus Christ, His Son.

For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. Revelations 5:9

Man was able to be blessed by God but wasn’t able to retain it, as he fell short (don’t have what it takes) of God’s glory due to his sinful nature. So, Adam’s blessing and Noah’s blessing had fade away.

Then, God called Abraham and blessed him with this promise – Genesis 12:1-3

More importantly God made this promise to Abraham so the blessing will be retained forever – Genesis 22:16-18 right after testing the faith of Abraham and showing His provision to save His generation, which is you and me who believes in this Good News and has become a Nation for God!

Join this race today, it has been promised to prevail!

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 1 John 5:4

The Peace River

Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river…
Yet even now, be free from your captivity! Leave Babylon and the Babylonians. Isaiah 48:18, 20

Success, money and fame can come in many ways in this world. But peace can only come when things are done in God’s way.

As this scripture states, God’s peace is a gentle river that flows continually in His will. God’s will for each one of our lives is like a plain road available for us to take when we submit and remain submitted. There we find this peace river flowing along that road and we ourselves flowing in it.

There is nothing can beat that joy of being in peace with God and allowing God’s voice/word controlling the course of our life (daily choices and decisions that we make).

No matter what we go thru’ in this life, the soothing sound of that running streams of peace river is the sign that we are in God’s will, and will heal us, comfort us and put a genuine smile of hope on our face!

Never go away from the path of your peace river!

A full body workout!

He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16

I am washed by the blood of Lord Jesus Christ, but I am still imperfect if I don’t find my place in His Body – the Church.

Christ wins individuals and place them in a flock to form that perfect body called Church, which comprise of imperfect forgiven people encouraging and empowering each other in Christ’s love and like faith.

I have no purpose in Christ Jesus all alone, but the moment I connect to His body I find my place, function and ability that was lacking otherwise.

The only way for me and Church to stay healthy and have good continual growth is by love!

Love is the only workout that strengthens and build His body. Let’s do that full body workout, not an isolated workout.

Get your share of inheritance!

And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus. Ephesians 3:6

There is no privilege by birth, race, religion, caste or color to be loved and favored by God.

A person may be a pious monk or a notorious criminal, the moment he/she believes in Christ Jesus for his/her salvation they earn the same blessing of becoming God’s child!

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God. John 1:12-13

God’s plan is that all be saved (forgiven and embarked for eternity) and none be lost.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Salvation in Christ Jesus is for all mankind as much as those who wants to believe.

Whether we believe it or not soon we will be standing before His judgement seat – there is no point in believing then, now is the time to believe!

Who’s Important?

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Galatians 6:4-5

Minding our own businesses brings great peace, contentment and respect.

We are not here to reach and train everyone, unless God puts specific people for that purpose in our lives.

We are not here to help everyone either but only to help those whom God places in our paths.

If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Galatians 6:3

How sincere, faithful and diligent we could be in our actions, job, calling and relationships – brings wealth to us and honor to God!

It’s good to mind our own business!

The spoken strength

…What are you trusting in that makes you so confident? Do you think that mere words can substitute for military skill and strength? Isaiah 36:4-5

Devil seldom creates doubts on our strengths and skills, in fact, he encourage us to trust in our own strength, wisdom and skills so would become easy for him to steal, kill and destroy our lives.

The one thing devil vigorously tries to refute and create doubts is on the God’s spoken word in our lives.

When you know you don’t had the strengths or skills and still God got you in, you continue to stay only on the strength that comes from His word – no matter how you feel or what devil says.

The Word spoken into our lives is our true strength that revives us constantly to what God called us to be!

The day has come!

In that day he will be your sure foundation, providing a rich store of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the Lord will be your treasure. Isaiah 33:6

Can you believe today you and I are living ‘In that day’!

Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, flogged for my healing, bruised for my iniquities, hung on the cross to break my curses, resurrected to make me righteous and living today as my wisdom, knowledge and everlasting treasure of all that I need to live His plan for my life!

“But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us—our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption” 1 Corinthians 1:30

Promise Keeper

The son of the slave wife was born in a human attempt to bring about the fulfillment of God’s promise. But the son of the freeborn wife was born as God’s own fulfillment of his promise. Galatians 4:23

When God make a promise, it is impossible for the human ability both at the time it was received and at the time it got fulfilled.

Every time we attempt to get ‘closer’ to what God promised we had only damaged ourself one more time and still stay incapable of getting/becoming what He promised.

The only way to get closer to God’s promise is to get closer and closer to Him – learn how sufficient and faithful He is and refuse to act foolish in self.

Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. Romans 4:20-21

There is a hope

But those who die in the Lord will live; their bodies will rise again!
Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy!
For your life-giving light will fall like dew
on your people in the place of the dead! Isaiah 26:19

Thru’ the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ everything that is of God will overcome. Even those who are dead will be raised back to life!

This is the hope in Christ Jesus. This is the hope every human needs. This is the understanding every child (infants and toddlers) has. Only the grown ups has lost the hope looking at their mess.

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4

For Christ to set one free: it doesn’t matter who we are, where we are from or what we did. All He install in us is the faith which brings in that hope that will not die and cleanses us from all sin.

The reason for Christ to be our Lord is not to help us in the struggles of this world, but to help us overcome what is impossible without Him!

And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world. 1 Corinthians 15:19

All His love for you and all your love for Him is not just for now and then to be dead and buried – but to be raised up into the life eternal and love eternally.

Love Him and live forever!
