Watching God’s creation at work 💙

I’ve been M.I.A. this week, but it’s good to be offline for a period of time for it allowed me to focus on my walk with God and to catch up with many things such as improving talents and walking in nature. This past week at work, a young bird was born with a few complications. I checked on it every time I got, but the little birdie was adamant and independent despite the crippling defects of its little wings. The other birds flew down when they thought no one was looking to feed and nourish it. I’m happy to see that it’s looking healthier and getting along better. Today, it came into the library and I took it out on the greens to get some sunshine and fresh air. 

God’s creation is amazing. When the older birds ministered to the sick one, the sheep and the goats scripture came to mind especially this part:

I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Matthew 25:36

I’ve been working on the ministry that God is currently setting up for me to be a part of and I couldn’t be happier for I love serving Him any which way He calls me to. Everywhere I turn, He is reminding me of the soon-to-be-ministry.

May God bless your weekend as you rest in Him and if it’s possible, try to go outside and take a walk in nature as you commune with Him.

Expressing joy at calamities

 and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

Proverbs 17:5

The book of Proverbs shows us how foolish we can be if we do not choose to live wisely. It also teaches us how to be humble and how to be Christlike in all manner of ways. 

Matthew 5:44 tells us to love our enemies despite them cursing us, despising us, and spitefully using or persecuting us. However, some of us are so weighed down by the troubles they’ve caused that for a little moment, we forget Who we belong to and rejoice in their pain. We feel satisfied when we hear of their misfortunes instead of lifting them up in prayer. 

Why must we love our enemies? Simple. Just as much as He loves us, Jesus also loves our enemies for He does not want anyone to perish, but to join Him in everlasting life (2 Peter 3:9). So whenever you feel like rejoicing over your enemy because bad things befall them, remember that Jesus died for EVERYONE inclusive of your enemy; you’re not exclusive.

How should we love God?

 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

Deuteronomy 6:5;13

The promises of God

Body of Water during Dawn

The Bible is full of wonderful promises! Here are some of my favorites:

God has promised that those who believe in Jesus and are baptized, they will be forgiven of all sins and shall be saved. 

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:16)

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)

God has promised His people eternal life.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. (John 10: 27-28)

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

God has promised deliverance from demonic harassment. 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)

God has promised to deliver us from sickness.

The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. (Psalms 34:17)

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29)

God has promised to give us peace. To deliver us from fear.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

“But whosoever listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.” (Proverbs 1:33)

God has promised to take care of us.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? (Matthew 6:25)

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19

Aren’t those wonderful promises? Drawing closer to God can be rewarding. Don’t lose sight of the promises He has in store for you.
