ALWAYS SUFFICIENT FOR US

ALWAYS SUFFICIENT FOR US

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

How do you respond when you hear the news that does not fit with the expectation that you built for a long time?

  1. Most people will instantly be feeling down and regret the situation.
  2. Even there are some people who immediately try to justify themselves by looking for many of excuses.
  3. Some people will use the event to work more diligently and keep trying.
  4. And only a few people will surrender by giving thanks because they have faith in God that if God has to delay then He must have plans to double the miracle.

What is your answer to the above question, what situation will you face? Maybe in spiritually, we will say: “Óh, I will definitely continue to give thanks.” But know that your answer will be easy to be said but difficult to do. Do you remember how Peter, who said to Jesus that he was willing to die for Christ, but then denied it just less than 24 hours later. You must believe that your opponent, the devil is an expert in design accidents that can trap you then in under pressure doing the opposite of what we have said.

We, who say, “I will always give thanks in all things”, may be due to problems that do not fit the expectations, doing the self-cursing, cursing God an ashamed. Therefore, have a faith in the word of God which although small but able to say that Go’s grace is sufficient in all circumstances. So, if you experience a different reality from what you expect, you will realize that God’s love and grace is always sufficient for us.

TODAY’S WORD: 2 Corinthians 12:1-10, NKJV

The Vision of Paradise

12 It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord: 2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows— 4 how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 5 Of such a one I will boast; yet of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities. 6 For though I might desire to boast, I will not be a fool; for I will speak the truth. But I refrain, lest anyone should think of me above what he sees me to be or hears from me.

The Thorn in the Flesh

7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. 8 Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boost all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

TODAY’S ACTION:

When you hear the news that does not match your expectations, then declare the Word of God that God’s grace is always sufficient for us.

TODAY’S QUOTE:

Have faith that: God always suffices His grace when we have trials.

HOLY LIVING

30 Jul

HOLY LIVING

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

When God made the human body from the dust of the earth, human had not have a life yet. But when God breathed, then human being was alive and having a life. That was also when human beings had the Spirit of God and the body and the body of dust and dirt was turned into a living flesh and formed a complex human body to support the status of human beings as the most wise and an equal image of God.

But when man fell into sin, the Spirit of the Lord left human and that was when a human flesh became mortal, which means that human lost the eternal life and going to destruction. Soon God also made planning to save and give eternal life back to human, who have become a part of God.

Because God is holy that He cannot tolerate sin, then by love, God immediately removes human from the holy presence of God immediately removes human from the holy presence of God so that man cannot have eternal life when the status of human beings are still sinful so that God can punish sin and the human flesh to be able for God to sanctify human once again.

God the Father knew that the devil had stolen the holiness of God which resulted in the departure of the Spirit of God from man, so that salvation and eternal life can only be restored by the blood of the Holy Son of God. And indeed to us we have been spoken to that plan and work of salvation that Jesus has done on the cross, therefore salvation and eternal life that has been bestowed to those who want believe in Christ. When we believe, that is when God’s Spirit is inside us once more to give the source of life. When the Spirit of God dwells within us and in our obedience to the Spirit of God, everything became possible for us.

TODAY’S WORD: 1 Peter 1:13-21, NKJV

Living Before God Our Father

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 21 who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:16)

TODAY’S ACTION:

It is important for us to appreciate the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross so that we may always live holy and pleasing to God.

TODAY’S QUOTE:

By the blood of Jesus on the cross has restored our relationship with the Father, so we worthy to enter into His holy presence.

A FAITHFUL SERVANT

29 Jul

A FAITHFULL SERVANT

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

Today we want to learn from the attitude of the heart of servant sent by Abraham to find a wife for his son, Isaac. How the faithful servant was finally managed to complete the mission given to him. There are some interesting things for we can learn:

  1. This nameless servant got the authority from Abraham with an oath (verse 9).
  2. As his master, Abraham, this nameless servant knew God and relied on Him (verse 12).
  3. This faithful servant did not abuse his authority and took advantage of the authority given by Abraham (verse 34).
  4. This faithful servant remained obedient to the end. Although successful, this servant did not have fun to celebrate his success (verse 54).

Most of us fail to carry out a mission or a fall half-way for we move forward without the power and authority of God. We never ask for the authority and power by praying to God, because we really believe in ourselves and if we have the authority of God in the implementation of this mission, we are too often abused the authority to steal the glory of God.

Meanwhile, if we are successful, we tend to have fun celebrating for pleasure and self glory.

Today if you want to experience a success in a mission, then we should act like Abraham’s servant, which is to be aware that in this world we are servants who had become a tool of God’s glory. As servants we can only walk and move while receiving the authority and power of God, with God’s authority He will guarantee the success in everything that we do. And as the above loyal and obedient servant, then for every success, we must return to the glory of God’s name and not for ourselves, therefore God will entrust greater matters.

TODAY’S WORD: Genesis 24, NKJV

A Bride for Isaac

24 Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. 2 So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh, 3 and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; 4 but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac.”

5 And the servant said to him, “Perhaps the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land. Must I take your son back to the land from which you came?”

6 But Abraham said to him, “Beware that you do not take my son back there. 7 The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your descendants[a] I give this land,’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. 8 And if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be released from this oath; only do not take my son back there.” 9 So the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter.

10 Then the servant took ten of his master’s camels and departed, for all his master’s goods were in his hand. And he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. 11 And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water. 12 Then he said, “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham. 13 Behold, here I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. 14 Now let it be that the young woman to whom I say, ‘Please let down your pitcher that I may drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink’—let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac. And by this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master.”

15 And it happened, before he had finished speaking, that behold, Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, came out with her pitcher on her shoulder. 16 Now the young woman was very beautiful to behold, a virgin; no man had known her. And she went down to the well, filled her pitcher, and came up. 17 And the servant ran to meet her and said, “Please let me drink a little water from your pitcher.”

18 So she said, “Drink, my lord.” Then she quickly let her pitcher down to her hand, and gave him a drink. 19 And when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “I will draw water for your camels also, until they have finished drinking.” 20 Then she quickly emptied her pitcher into the trough, ran back to the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels. 21 And the man, wondering at her, remained silent so as to know whether the Lord had made his journey prosperous or not.

22 So it was, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her wrists weighing ten shekels of gold, 23 and said, “Whose daughter are you? Tell me, please, is there room in your father’s house for us to lodge?”

24 So she said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, Milcah’s son, whom she bore to Nahor.” 25 Moreover she said to him, “We have both straw and feed enough, and room to lodge.”

26 Then the man bowed down his head and worshiped the Lord. 27 And he said, “Blessed be the Lord God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His mercy and His truth toward my master. As for me, being on the way, the Lord led me to the house of my master’s brethren.” 28 So the young woman ran and told her mother’s household these things.

29 Now Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban ran out to the man by the well. 30 So it came to pass, when he saw the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s wrists, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebekah, saying, “Thus the man spoke to me,” that he went to the man. And there he stood by the camels at the well. 31 And he said, “Come in, O blessed of the Lord! Why do you stand outside? For I have prepared the house, and a place for the camels.”

32 Then the man came to the house. And he unloaded the camels, and provided straw and feed for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. 33 Food was set before him to eat, but he said, “I will not eat until I have told about my errand.”

And he said, “Speak on.”

34 So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant. 35 The Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he has become great; and He has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys. 36 And Sarah my master’s wife bore a son to my master when she was old; and to him he has given all that he has. 37 Now my master made me swear, saying, ‘You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell; 38 but you shall go to my father’s house and to my family, and take a wife for my son.’ 39 And I said to my master, ‘Perhaps the woman will not follow me.’ 40 But he said to me, ‘The Lord, before whom I walk, will send His angel with you and prosper your way; and you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from my father’s house. 41 You will be clear from this oath when you arrive among my family; for if they will not give her to you, then you will be released from my oath.’

42 “And this day I came to the well and said, ‘O Lord God of my master Abraham, if You will now prosper the way in which I go, 43 behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass that when the virgin comes out to draw water, and I say to her, “Please give me a little water from your pitcher to drink,” 44 and she says to me, “Drink, and I will draw for your camels also,”—let her be the woman whom the Lord has appointed for my master’s son.’

45 “But before I had finished speaking in my heart, there was Rebekah, coming out with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down to the well and drew water. And I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’ 46 And she made haste and let her pitcher down from her shoulder, and said, ‘Drink, and I will give your camels a drink also.’ So I drank, and she gave the camels a drink also. 47 Then I asked her, and said, ‘Whose daughter are you?’ And she said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bore to him.’ So I put the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her wrists. 48 And I bowed my head and worshiped the Lord, and blessed the Lord God of my master Abraham, who had led me in the way of truth to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son. 49 Now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me. And if not, tell me, that I may turn to the right hand or to the left.”

50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, “The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot speak to you either bad or good. 51 Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go, and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as the Lord has spoken.”

52 And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that he worshiped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth. 53 Then the servant brought out jewelry of silver, jewelry of gold, and clothing, and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave precious things to her brother and to her mother.

54 And he and the men who were with him ate and drank and stayed all night. Then they arose in the morning, and he said, “Send me away to my master.”

55 But her brother and her mother said, “Let the young woman stay with us a few days, at least ten; after that she may go.”

56 And he said to them, “Do not hinder me, since the Lord has prospered my way; send me away so that I may go to my master.”

57 So they said, “We will call the young woman and ask her personally.” 58 Then they called Rebekah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?”

And she said, “I will go.”

59 So they sent away Rebekah their sister and her nurse, and Abraham’s servant and his men. 60 And they blessed Rebekah and said to her:

“Our sister, may you become the mother of thousands of ten thousands; And may your descendants possess the gates of those who hate them.”

61 Then Rebekah and her maids arose, and they rode on the camels and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and departed.

62 Now Isaac came from the way of Beer Lahai Roi, for he dwelt in the South. 63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening; and he lifted his eyes and looked, and there, the camels were coming. 64 Then Rebekah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from her camel; 65 for she had said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?”

The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took a veil and covered herself.

66 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. 67 Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck.” (Proverbs 3:3)

TODAY’S ACTION:

Be faithful and obedient servant with the power and authority of God.

WHICH ONE IS BIGGER, HEART OR MIND?

28 Jul

WHICH ONE IS BIGGER, HEART OR MIND?

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

The mind is the area of authority of the devil because the Spirit of God does not abide in the mind and because the Holy Spirit does not abide in the mind, then your minds there are many facts, ratios despite they are very high developed but still limited. Because of the limitations of the mind, then the finite mind can limit human and bring human to the impossibility trap that makes people very often hesitate in performing in fact losing before even try.

Just like when the ten spies of Israel who returned from the espionage of Canaan land. What they saw was the fact that the land of Canaan land. What they saw was the fact that the land of Canaan was very fertile, rich with milk and honey, but the land was inhabited by the Anakim giants who were large and protected by a strong fortress. The fact was rested their minds, which are limited, and instantaneously that finite minds forgot God’s power when God demonstrated His power by splitting the Red Sea. The fact about the existence of giants inside the great wall haunted them and panicked them so they rebelled against God’s plan by returning to Egypt. At the time of their limited minds were greater than their hearts.

Today God teaches about a source of unlimited power that lies in the heart. As we know that the Holy Spirit is God’s personal which abides in the heart of the believers of the Lord Jesus. He does not abide in the human’s mind and it is important to know that in everything where there is no presence of the Holy Spirit will be the domain of the devil. In a heart full of the Holy Spirit will form a faith as strong as rocks which is able to see God’s work in the unlimited realm of the Spirit; like the other two spies who were Joshua and Caleb. They have a heart full of the Holy Spirit that was larger than the human mind.

Finally, it is only Joshua and Caleb who were able to enjoy the milk and honey from the land of Canaan with all of their descendants.

TODAY’S WORD: Numbers 14:1-38, NKJV

Israel Refuses to Enter Canaan

14 So all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night. 2 And all the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the whole congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Egypt! Or if only we had died in this wilderness! 3 Why has the Lord brought us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become victims? Would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?” 4 So they said to one another, “Let us select a leader and return to Egypt.”

5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

6 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; 7 and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. 8 If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ 9 Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.”

10 And all the congregation said to stone them with stones. Now the glory of the Lord appeared in the tabernacle of meeting before all the children of Israel.

Moses Intercedes for the People

11 Then the Lord said to Moses: “How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they.”

13 And Moses said to the Lord: “Then the Egyptians will hear it, for by Your might You brought these people up from among them, 14 and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, Lord, are among these people; that You, Lord, are seen face to face and Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. 15 Now if You kill these people as one man, then the nations which have heard of Your fame will speak, saying, 16 ‘Because the Lord was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.’ 17 And now, I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken, saying, 18 ‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.” (Numbers 14:24)

DON’T BE GRUMPY

DON’T BE GRUMPY

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

Today we want to learn from the story of the drought experienced by the nation of Israel (Exodus 17). Such situations had made the faith of the people of Israel become dry, so they asked, “Is there a God care about us?” or rather “Does God exist?

It is often that dryness can make people including us believers to doubt the existence of God. Business dried, sickness, excessive anxiety, a failed attempt can make people to doubt the existence and intervention of God. Because He is invisible and that what is visible is only problems and often times because of God’s invisibly, He always becomes a scapegoat.

Learn from God’s Word today, so at the moment we are experiencing drought, we do not become dry and then imitate the faith of the Israelites who were grumpy, blaming God and as a result they did not enjoy the promises of God. But from the drought event, we know from the word of God that teaches us to follow all the commandments, laws, ordinances of the Lord so that we may become God’s possessions, a holy nation, and the pupil of God’s eye.

God takes our obedience into account, because in our obedience, God’s glory is revealed. Although in drought as long as we walk on the promise of God and come to God’s presence then God’s glory cloud will surround us, and the Lord will answer to suffice all our needs according to His riches and glory.

TODAY’S WORD: Exodus 17:1-7, NKJV

Water from the Rock

17 Then all the congregation of the children of Israel set out on their journey from the Wilderness of Sin, according to the commandment of the Lord, and camped in Rephidim; but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 Therefore the people contended with Moses, and said, “Give us water, that we may drink.”

So Moses said to them, “Why do you contend with me? Why do you tempt the Lord?”

3 And the people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and said, “Why is it you have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?”

4 So Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, “What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me!”

5 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel. Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.”

And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 So he called the name of the place Massah and Meribah, because of the contention of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

HE IS ALL-KNOWING

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

Every problem must have a way out; it is just to get to a way out is not easy and requires an effort, process and time, which means that every problem must have an exit.

Just like as we walk through a game of labyrinth or maze games, it is a game designed to train players to focus, be patient, persevere because in the end there will be a way out or exit though the players must pass through a twisty road.

If currently you feel that God is closing the door, do not blame yourself, do not also blame other people let alone blame God. But own the understanding that when God closes door, it is because He is all-knowing and He knows there is something bad behind that door that can danger us. Understand that when He closes one door, He must be in the process of leading to the other way to open the other door to achieve a more glorious success.

Because Jesus is the only true way towards a life more than a winner, means the solution to all our problem exist only in Christ.

TODAY’S WORD: Psalm 37:23-24, NKJV

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand.

TRUTH

25 Jul

TRUTH

TODAY’S INSPIRATION

Pilate once asked Jesus in John 18:38, “What is truth?” When Pilate heard this statement of Jesus: “I came into this world is testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of the truth listen to me.” What is truth really? The Word of God says that the truth will free you from the lies and the bondage of sin.

The truth without the Spirit of is not the truth but the false truth, while the Spirit without the truth is not the God’s Spirit. Something that is not of God is of the devil and what is the devil do in human life that is successfully deceived? The thief comes aiming to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). So it is clear that only the Holy Spirit we can find the truth that can set us free from all deceits and bonding of tradition which is vain, as recorded in the Law but it was correctly applied by man so as making human to have more tendency to make rules as gods rather than using rules as a means to live pleasing the Lord.

There were a couple of times in the event of the miracles performed by Jesus occurred on the Sabbath. Because the Lord Jesus wants to straighten out the wrong rule in Law that the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath, that, indeed, the Sabbath is the day to glorify and worship God, it is not the day to hinder a revelation of the glory of God’s name.

Therefore, let us not be deceived by the devil, have the truth in the Spirit that will bring us to continue to rise and glorify God.

TODAY’S WORD: John 8:30-36, NKJV

30 As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.

The Truth Shall Make You Free

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Fathers seeks.” (John 4:23)

TODAY’S ACTION:

Keep worshipping God in Spirit and truth because those are things that will set you free.
