HAND OF GOD IS UP ON YOU

My dear friends,

Greeting in the name of our lord Jesus Christ.

Most of the time we are running out of plans in our life or don’t recognize that what we are going to do next.

We come to a stage that we need someone to help us and envision us going further or a sign of what next we have to do?

We often forget there is God upon us who is watching of what are we going through

The Holy Scripture of God says he has already planned for us and nothing to worry about it. (Jer 29:11)

I am speaking to people who knew that God has plans for them, but come to a point seeking help what they have to do next or how can they go further.

Are you in that situation right now?

Let’s move to quick meditation to what scriptures says,

2 Kings 3:6-18

In short summary:

During the time of Moab rebels against Israel, when jehoram went seeking help to Jehoshaphat to raise against Moab, both (king of Israel and king of Judah) Together agrees and they decide to pass through the wilderness of Edom along with the king of Edom.

It took place during those times there is no water or rain those days, where valley was in a dry state level.

By finding out current situation they said to themselves is the Lord has brought three kings to deliver us to our enemy this way. i.e. Moabites

Verse 11: But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there no prophet of the Lord here, that we may inquire of the Lord by him

Now they are in a situation not understanding what to do next and willing to seek help of a prophet to recognize what to do further under the will of God.

Then one of the servant speaks about Prophet Elisha and these three kings go to him and seek about through Elisha what the lord has for them to practice or pursue further.

Verse 13: Then Elisha said to the king of Israel, “What have I to do with you? Go to the prophets of your father and the prophets of your mother.”

Most of the time we follow our heart’s decision and we don’t find the will of God

Going further we take things for granted ending up in questionable state toward God.

NOW HOW TO FIND THE WILL OF GOD IN THIS KIND OF SITUATION

Now Verse 15 But now bring me a musician.”   Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him

Verse 17 and 18 for thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ And this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord; He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand.

I understand something amazing here that God reveals to all

People who are reading this web log, bless you all, here we have an answer that word of God gives.

From above verse, when you are in a situation do not know the will of God and what to do with problems you are facing carrying with you sometime doesn’t make any sense

Now how we endure about?

All we have to do is start worshiping the God, the Creator and life giver who gave his son on the cross for our sins, declaring the name lord Christ, blood, resurrection and life. For he is life John 11:25

Playing music mean is not having instruments, good to have instruments but it’s good to open up our mouth and start worshiping the God, because God is word John 1:1, and he lives on the praise of his people.

And when you start worshiping the living God all situations will turn into happiness, likewise in verse 17&18, God blessed the valley, even when there is no rainfall and wind.

He will bless us even when we are going through crunch times.

He will deliver our problem when we wait upon him-Isaiah 40:31

He will strengthen us when we call upon you name- 1 Samuel 30:6

He will be there to answer you when we keep worshiping his holy name -Jer 33:3

Because his mercies endures forever-Psalms 136.

Hence let us not keep murmuring about our situations that we are going through right now, we will just look upon God and he shall devour you, for all the problems are simple for God nothing is impossible for him

Don’t be negligent, ignorant of word of GOD, be alert and discernment in the spirit

Full of Holy Spirit for enemies will attempt to diversify your plans that God has for you.

Keep praying without ceasing keep seeking his love and mercy

Continue practicing your call and apply the word of God in your daily life

Continue talking about Jesus, his resurrection, blood and work of the cross, for the bible says Luke 4:18 that we are called

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord

Have we blessed days in Christ,

Dispiritedness – Don’t let others bad behavior to steal your Joy

Dear Friends,

Our God is Prince of peace and love.

Here I am with few encouraging words for you all those who are called to build kingdom of God.

Many times as a Christian our beginning are not well and good, we live through a very rough time or we come under the influence of Dispiritedness which includes discouragement , rejections, undeserved corrections, disappointment, hurts, sadness, something which deals with pain, left out kind of situations, loneliness.

We deal with this area every day in our daily life , most of the time we continue carrying this along with us and try to handle it our own.

Today, we need to understand some basic things about you and yourself, meaning your relationship with you.  Oh!! I trust I am rightly talking now!! Will come again in later part of this open discussion

Who you are, Word of God says,that you are the Image of God, (Genesis 1:27) and to spoil this image Devil would put full efforts to fetch it down.

Dispiritedness (Rejections, discouragements) has been a devil’s biggest weapon to draw down the image of God, pull down the growing Christians, pastors, leaders. believers.

Hope you all getting to the point 🙂 , Devil always ready to steal your Joy by hurting you while when you are growing stronger in the lord, serving his purpose, so delighted in his presence, he hates to see you happy.

All leaders,Pastors and believers, go through this phase, the questions is how can we overcome this Dispiritedness.

We necessitate to understand something important before drawing to a conclusion, most of the time people are hurting you because they are in hurt themselves or they are going through some rough time in their own life, we often forget to view it these ways.

When those rejections come upon you, we fail to face it because we don’t like someone talking not good about you or corrections coming again and once more when you are trying hard to come up with better things,

We fail to deal with problems or it all depend’s how you deal with problems, along with your response toward it.

When Dispiritedness fall upon you, most of us carry it deeper for long time and become so atrocious that you starting avoiding right things that was suppose you to be followed.

It gets so intense that you tend to take a step back from your responsibility, call of your ministry or start avoiding the person who brought Dispiritedness on you.

There is a catch here, you necessitate to understand this is where the door of darkness opens into your life such that you keep yourself away from God.

You give way to disappointment, broken spirit, anger, hatred, un-forgiveness, hurt, loneliness, where the bible talks about just opposite to these like love, patience, strong courageous,boldness so on. And you end up with deep rejections roots into your lifetime.

Getting back to what scripture talks about you, who you are.

It says, you are the chosen one before foundation, you are adopted son and daughter of god, holy blameless, (Eps 1:4, 5),

That what you are, you are beloved to God, who had accepted it already.

To come out of the area of rejections and Dispiritedness few actions we have to realize.

  • If somebody has hurt you, forgive them, that brings you deliverance
  • Pray for them Romans 12:14
  • Don’t be angry, rejoice be glad be courageous,
  • Praise the lord, Humble and be wise
  • Don’t be stuck back in the same situation by keeping all old rejections in minds.
  • Don’t worry about what other are telling you, when you know that Christ is in you. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Unless it’s really a corrective action and need to enhance growth of your spiritual life.

HOLY SPIRIT is spirit of truth and he will help you not to be deceived from any Dispiritedness

He will help you to renew your heart and mind, for we all know that Christ is hope of Glory and he is in you, his spirit is in us Colossian 3:10:

Remember only truth will set you free bible says “If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”-John 8:31-32

Don’t worry what people talk about you, your focus is Jesus, Luke 10:16/ Luke 20:17 it says when Christ is in you, he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects Him who sent Me and also The stone which the builders refused has become the chief cornerstone

Be of good cheers and courage, my friends for Christ is hope of Glory and he is in you. Be happy about it

Blessings
