For They Will Inherit the Earth — TLP

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 A person who is “meek” is often thought of as being resigned to their circumstances, even weak, but that really isn’t what is being described here. Those who are “meek” are those who understand that they are dependent upon God, and not upon […]

Those Who Mourn — TLP

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 Most of the time, we don’t associate blessing with mourning; maybe we should rethink this… Matthew didn’t actually say what those blessed ones are mourning; it could be the loss of a loved one, it could be the loss of their home or […]

Worship and Praise #36

John 4

“Woman,”  Jesus replied, ” believed me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.  John 4:21-24

Quiet Moments Alone With God

Jeremiah 33.jpg

This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord formed it and established it, the Lord is his name. Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.     Jeremiah 33:2-3

As you read and come to know my blog you will realize that the name I choose a few years ago is called quiet moments with God. I have always cherish my time alone with the Lord and I truly tell you that my time with my Lord is just me and Him, and believe me that time of the day I do not care to share with anyone else. For me I am up early before the sun rises and my spirit looks forward in that time alone with my Savior. 

Perhaps, even nowadays, we can do with the advice Christ gives us, because many of us don’t have a place for our quiet time, a quiet room where we can bare our souls to God. It’s not about the room, but about the quiet moments we spend alone with God. Life is so demanding these days. We have a hundred responsibilities in and outside the home, as well as our Christian actives and duties. In many houses there is no such thing as a quiet room anymore.

Because of this, it is difficult to concentrate, introspection becomes rare and we don’t feel the need to withdraw from the buzz of the world as much, and to find strength in fellowship with God. We know that this results in spiritual impoverishment. We can only stay strong and powerful in our deepest being through solitary fellowship with God. When you are alone behind a closed door to escape from the world with its pressing problems, you should not even leave the door ajar. If you do, you can be sure that the world will follow you and disturb your quiet time.  

What it boils down to is that we need to have a closed door between us and the world outside. Even the presence of a best friend is a hindrance. If ever anyone knew how to pray it was Jesus, and yet He withdraw from the circle of His most trusted apostles to spend the entire night alone on a solitary mountaintop in prayer with His Father. This is what it means to “shut the door behind you.” But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.    Matthew 6:6

Praise and Worship #35

deuteronomy 10.jpg

Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes. Your ancestors who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky.       Deuteronomy 10:20-22

Can I Pray For You Today?

prayer request

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and request. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.                                            Ephesians 6:18

My friends, do you have a prayer request today, leave your comments below or email me at eguyadeen3@gmail.com, and let us go together to the throne of God in prayer. 

 

All that a Christian does, even in eating and sleeping, is prayer, when it is done in simplicity, according to the order of God, without either adding to or diminishing from it by his own choice.                         (John Wesley)

Stop Hiding

Genesis 3.jpg

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he walked in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”                                                           Genesis 3:8-10 

When we picture Adam and Eve crouched behind bushes in an attempt to hid from all-knowing God, we may chuckle at the futility of their act. Of course, they knew that eventually they would have to face God and that He already knew what they’d done. But where we can empathize is in the feeling of fear that God can really see us, that He knows all the shame we bear and all the ways we’ve failed.

Maybe you aren’t hiding behind bushes, but perhaps you understand what it is to conceal your most private thoughts, faults, and failures out of embarrassment. Afraid that their deepest hurts will be exposed, naked for all to see, most people behind defensive responses. However, this does absolutely no good for anyone. Those coping mechanisms only end up isolating you further from others and from the one you need most, from God Himself.

Friend, understand that today, the Father is calling you to come out of concealment so you can be free of those shameful places. Will you blame your past and keep covering yourself with ineffective methods? Or will you open yourself to His healing presence? Don’t act ineffectively, like Adam and Eve. Stop hiding and be free.
