Thoughts...

God said "Be Holy just as He is" Not "Act Holy"!

*

Your Mind "imagines" what your Heart "desires", so then sanctify the desires of your Heart so your mind may think righteously!

*

When your desire is to only show yourself as a Christian "before people", you need not Be Holy, you just need to put up that act till no one sees you or atleast you deceive your self that no one sees your thoughts because God always sees.

*

When your desire is to only show yourself as a Christian "before people", you will be satisfied with so less in your acts towards God because you are doing it just for people, not for God.

But when your desire is to Love God for who He is, then you do your acts for God whether people are there around to applaud or not. In fact you may not even tell a soul because your only motive was to Serve God, to pour out yourself as a Love offering!

*

When your passion for God is seen only before men, you will find yourself a Compromising Sin-Justifying Christian when you are alone literally or in your thoughts, But when your passion for God is for God, you will receive an eternal Hunger only God can satisfy!

*

Keep yourself Hungry for God, its the Hungry Who Seek for more, not the ones who think they have enough!

*

Much has been given to You to accomplish Much!
Wait upon God in prayer to know your assignments, Jesus did!

*

The Lies instead of Truth are the foundation of Life led by Sin.

*

You need to push yourself to stand up to your own conscience, if you dont, you end up shrinking your conscience, until there is none left!

*

In our freedom, we have pursued our evil motives and desires and in doing so we killed our conscience of any kind.

*

The fight is not between God and Devil, its between "Us" and "Devil", the created beings and we depend on prayer for God to intervene on our behalf!

*

In a Social gathering, a Proud man's Heart always tries to set themselves High above others on account of their wealth,Education or Beauty and hence look down on others justifying by what they perceive about them!

*

The enemy seeks to cover the "Understanding of God" as with a blanket, we need to spend time in prayer asking God to lift up this cloak over our Understanding of Him which we so desperately Need!

*

When you see yourself through your own eyes or through the eyes of the people, on acccount of your riches, beauty or social status, you will be puffed up, but when you see yourself through God's eyes you will be humbled!

*

A Christian walk is about a journey from trying to please self to trying to please God.

Journey from trying to run after things/people to make them complete us to going before God and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us toward truth of God and complete us.

A Journey from a state of mind where things of this world are Sufficient for us to a point where God alone satisfies us.

*

Jesus dint come to sell tickets to heaven(Salvation), he came to restore our relationship with the Father destroyed due to our rebellion in Sin against a Holy God.

*

Real Love Costs! It did for Jesus!

He gave up his heavenly glory and reduced himself to a mere man subjected himself to the punishment we rightly bare for our rebellion against God.

In your relationships, it takes a lot to abstain when you should!
Abstain from an immoral thought, abstain from an unkind word, abstain from a natural wicked response to responding in hope ,in love and with Faith.

*

When fear, doubt and confusion plagues your Soul. Remember to keep your Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, for he knows the End from the Beginning.
He was there before Time began, and he will be there when Time ends!

Humbly submit your life at His Feet, and surrender your agendas/plans at His feet. Make Christ the Lord over your life.
Don’t continue to live in sinful rebellion, but submit to His ways. Seek to know Him, please Him.

*

Love is such a beautiful thing; When you truly Love someone, you pour out yourself for them, you sacrifice your desires/comforts for theirs.Christ loved us and poured out himself for us! BUT my Love for Christ is seen, when i pour out myself for Him, not otherwise!

*

The cost of following Christ, to lay down your life(your agendas,your desires) to gain eternity by picking His Will, exchanging His agendas for ours!

Paul says "Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ " Phil 3:8

*

True repentance is a change of mind and attitude toward sin and its causes, not merely toward the consequence of sin. - John Bevere

*

We may be able to successfully root out poverty, may be keep ourselves free from all kinds of diseases, but what we cannot do is 'Save ourselves from our Sins'

The Bible says Christ came to set mankind free from the bondage of Sin! Matthew 1:21
He came to show us the Way to the Father in Heaven that whosoever believes in Him CANNOT continue to Sin but rivers of living water will flow from within them!

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

*

A Christian’s attitude: should be- It’s NOT because I don’t Sin, I belong to Christ. But rather because I belong to Christ, I don’t Sin!

*

We 'Judge' (Evaluate) others with greatest ease, while months go by when we have not ever sat down to 'Evaluate' Self!

*

Why do we feel proud? Because we believe in a lie that we are something more than we are!!

The only Truth about us is that “Christ died for us while we were “still sinners”, and He rose again from the Dead to show that we need to die to our sinful habits, die to our sinful thought processes, so that we might rise up in righteousness, showing through our very being, His Nature, just like “He rose from the Dead!”

*

If the motivation for your “good” acts is only to “Appear” good before certain people, then that good is no good. It just hides you from who you really are! Unless you confront the truth of who you are, the real you can’t change, it just hides!


The Real “You" can be found lying deep under your heart’s selfish motives.


Christ came so that we can look at ourselves in the light of who God created us to be “Holy, Pure, Selfless” Just like He was!


Take the path to your “Selfless" Self today by depending on the Holy Spirit to mould you and transform you as you walk.. and when you start walking you will know how long a path it is!


The more you walk this path, the more ‘humble' you see yourself, the more at peace you will find yourself irrespective of your situations.
Thats the Overcoming Power available to us who believe in the One Died and Rose from the Dead, Jesus Christ !

*

Let not your Flame for God be extinguished by the fires of this World!

The Enemy razed the fire 7 times hotter for Shedrach &Co but No eye has Seen, No mind can conceive what God has in Store for those who Love Him!
What the enemy thought was an End was an event which is burning in History forever!


Rise Up and Pray that God will lead you into Victory in whatever battle you are in for God’s glory not yours!!

*

Complete Obedience comes from
Complete Surrender
comes from
Complete Dependence


We can Obey God only When We Surrender Completely and we have surrendered completely when we have no confidence in our own abilities and plans but in Complete Dependence of Who God is, Not of What we are.
Our confidence then is not in the Flesh(Self) but in the power of the resurrected Christ, Death could not Hold him back but He rose from the Dead to give Hope to the World that even Death is not the End but Just the Beginning.


Phillippians 3:3 we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh.

*

Somehow Satan has convinced masses of religious people that striving to "do" the Lord’s will is an evil concept. To many, "doing" the Lord’s will (that is, keeping His commands) is legalism or evidence that one is trying to earn his/her salvation. The Bible teaches no such thing! The one that truly knows God is the one that keeps His word. The Bible says so (1 John 2:3-5). The one that is allowed to enter the kingdom of heaven is the one that does the Father’s will. Jesus said so (Matthew 7:21).- Roger D Campbell

*

All other definitions of Grace of God with which people "justify their sins" than "overcome their sins" are futile!

Grace enables and empowers us to live a life of holiness and obedience to the authority of God- John Bevere

*

Because of God’s tender mercy,the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace. Luke 1:78,79

*

Lets not be hypocritical in our relationship with God when we only concentrate on What to “Get Out” of God rather than What God expects of us! In the end, The Lord ‘knows' who who have heard His Voice and Obeyed Him!

*

Whatever you're doing inside of me It feels like chaos but now I can see
This something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly
Something heavenly!- Sanctus Real

*

If you are spending time talking to people about what God has done for 'You' More than spending time thanking God about it, You are being More Boastful than Thankful!

Im not against testifying but we should be honest and clear with our motives.Lets not excuse ourselves as glorifying God while we are glorifying Self!


A thankful heart goes a long way in one's relationship with God!


1 Thessalonians 16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

*

Enoch- All that the Bible says is he lived his life in close fellowship with God. His entire 365 years summed in one line.

*

If the truth that you proclaim is not the truth in you, then the truth that you preach has no power, its just an empty shell boasting of power when it has none. So then allow the truth to sink into your heart and let it be fruitful and the scripture says “Out of your heart will flow rivers of living water” and “Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown-Luke 8:8”


We proclaim Jesus is King, that He is a Sovereign God. But lets ask ourselves is He the King over my Life, is God sovereign over all the decisions of my Life.
Well…if thats not so!! well then what are we waiting for.. Just fall at the feet of Christ. His Love endures forever!!

*

If you are crying about problem more before People than before God, No wonder the problem is worse as it ever was.

Take a look at your problem and then look at God .


But more often than not, at least I have the problem of crying about the problem to every x,y, z but not travail in Prayer before God.And thats all that is ever needed.


Jesus said, "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."
