"Your labor is not in vain in the Lord." (1Cor.15:58, NKJV).
Those who are discouraged serving the Lord are those who have served the Lord by their own strength and have failed to labor by the power of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Those who serve the Lord should actually serve Him with the strength that comes from the Lord, this is the grace that brings the power of God's anointing to do the work of the Lord. Most of the servants of God who become hopeless have not gone even in to knee deep water of His constant life that flows from heaven from within them. But as they let that water flow out of them, then every such servant of God will bring the refreshment of heaven to this earth and its inhabitants without fail. The servants of God around the world soon become hopeless in their thoughts, because they have not taken the pain to train themselves to think the way God thinks. God looks to the future joy of triumph and then strengthens Himself in the present with the same joy because of the outcome that is coming ahead without fail. In other words, God thinks about our glorious end even before we begin, that is why God never gets bothered by all those hard times that passes through in between the beginning and the end of one's lives. God has orchestrated everything beforehand that nothing can go out of control of His blue-print in our lives. Then why are we discouraged when God is waiting for us to finish our race with great joy? Because His reward is in His hand to give to us all who labor for Him and in Him, that is by His power working through us, let us continue to refresh our own mind that all our labor for the Lord is not in vain for eternity ahead. God is pleased only when we let Him work for Himself and finish that work through us. Are we ready? You are asking me for what? To go deeper from knee deep water to stomach deep water, from stomach deep water to chest deep water, from chest deep water to a place where we cannot walk but only swim to enjoy the rest that comes from heaven through it. Surely God is waiting for us to move ahead in faith to leave our own control and balance that we hold by keeping the sole of our feet on the ocean floor where God is taking us. Let go and let God take control of your life in Jesus mighty name. Pray with me: "Dear Heavenly Father, O my dear Papa, Dada...help me let go of the safety of the ocean floor where I am standing to make the water of the Holy Spirit hold me to make me float in You spiritually. I thank you for your mercies, help me swim in the great heavenly ocean of the Spirit and enjoy your heavenly rest forever and ever in Jesus wonderful name! Amen!"
"God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty." (1 Cor.1:27, NKJV).
When God wants to show His Glory to the world, he goes to the trash can and garbage dump to choose and pick up the weak, ugly and damaged things which people have rejected as good for nothing, then He transforms their mind just like how He thinks, and then empowers them to be shown to the world as His very agents of change. God shames the wise through choosing the weak things. Only those weak things cannot take pride in their own transformation but can stay in the place of humility before God and men to give glory to God for all the great things he has done in and through them. All the children of God who again become proud in their lives after God blesses them and uses them for His Glory, are those who have been ungrateful to God and have forgotten where they have been picked by God when they were chosen by Him initially. To cultivate gratefulness towards God for choosing the foolish and weak thing like us, we must always keep our face at the dust of His feet in humility by boasting only about His power and giving praise always at all times for the great things he has done in our lives. When we lose the humility before God that we ought to have, God cannot continue to use us. Many times we end up with our problems that brings shame to us, because God wants to remind us that we cannot continue as the sons of pride and also bring Glory to His name. So let us learn to look to God day by day like as a beggar in need which we actually are in ourselves, so that God can take notice of our humility to make us continue to shower us with His mighty grace and keep us empowered to use us as His mighty channel of His blessing to people around us in the world and make us inherit the whole earth for His Glory in the coming days. Never forget, you did not choose God but God chose you initially because He found you foolish and weak enough for the world around to mock at you. Now that He has chosen you with a glorious calling, stay humble so that you will not stumble. If you can remember to stay at heart in humility knowing where you have been taken from, then God will continue to remember to lavish His grace to lift you up continually day by day to the place where He has actually destined you to live Gloriously under His constant favor abounding in every area of your life, which will shame the wise and the noble of this world and bring Glory to God's name more and more. Pray with me : "Dear Father God, Thank you for choosing me out of garbage dump to take me as your child in to your own family and using me by your grace to glorify you in all things for which you have called me to be. Help me stay humble and not stumble by pride spiritually. Give you praise and glory for all things you made me to do for your Glory. In Jesus name I pray, amen!"
"That the sharing of your faith may become effective." (Philem.1:6, NKJV).
They say that the best way to learn is to teach others what we already have by knowledge within us. This knowledge then becomes a experiential wisdom by the blessing of God once we start to share what we have with others around us who do not know about it. God is the greatest giver and no one can outdo Him, we are the greatest receivers and no one can outdo us. But the moment we start to change our mind to give what we have to others, we start to practice the way God is. That is why Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." In other words, the result of giving to others is again receiving from God the God-kind of joy that He experiences in heaven that will start to bubble out of our heart. Praise the Lord! Jesus told all the believers not to stay as just believers who think like going to heaven is their purpose, but rather become disciples [i.e. learners] who practice whatever Jesus has taught them through His Word and Spirit. Again to practice what Jesus has taught us, is to "make disciples of all the nations...teaching them to observe all things that Jesus have commanded us; and lo, Jesus has promised to be with us in His empowering Presence always, even to the end of the age." (Matt 28:19-20). What are we waiting for? Let us learn to share the good things that Jesus has taught us or have miraculously done for us. As we share boldly by faith and teach others, what we teach others by acknowledging what Jesus has done for us, suddenly becomes reloaded with new grace and becomes a effective outreach to others for the Glory of God. But it doesn't end there, even more than that, every good thing that we have acknowledged before others as something present in us suddenly starts to extend its deeper root in us so that every good thing that is already present in Christ Jesus becomes a living reality in us because of our increased faith. Glory to God! Pray With Me Dear Saints: "Dear God Our Father in Heaven, Thank you for this wonderful time you have given us to share and fellowship with one another. Now I understand that by giving to others I receive more from you. Help me boldly acknowledge my faith and grow deeper in my faith to see more miracles of joy and reality in my spiritual life. Thank you for your empowering presence which is always present with me through Jesus. In Jesus name! Amen!" Glory to God!
"Give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings." (Prov.4:20, NKJV).
The God of heaven and earth who is the sole owner of all of it is in the business of blessing people all over the world in our times. But he wants all whom he blesses to get prepared for something greater than what we see now in this temporal world. God wants us to see the eternal benefit of being in friendship with God. This age which is under the rule of Satan and his demonic minions will very soon come to an end and then the Messiah Jesus will come to this present earth to establish God's kingdom on earth which will rule for a thousand years. But at the end of it all, God is going to dispose this old earth and heaven that has been tainted by sin, sickness and death through fire, and will create a new heaven and a new earth which will cause the Church to continue to rule in the Kingdom of God along with Jesus over God's subjects the saints. Now God wants us all to give attention to His words which is written in the Bible and wants us to incline our ear which means open our inner spiritual ears to do nothing but only what God says to us so that it will sharpen our capacity to hear the voice of God more and more clearly to glorify Him in all our words and actions. Nothing pleases God more than our obedience to His Word by faith. Faith that is without works is actually dead, so we must remember to make sure we are living in true faith through testing our works and finding its authenticity. The blessings of heaven are innumerable in this life and in the life to come when we constantly stay in obedience to the voice of God within us. God's word is His voice. Obeying the Word of God will always display our willingness to receive God's choicest blessing in our lives. When God speaks in to our lives through His Word constantly, blessings overflows in to our lives. So what are we really waiting for? If we are waiting for God to bless us, we are already in the loop of God's favor through God's spoken Word which will keep His blessings to continue pouring in to our lives. Listen, listen...listen to the Word of God. Open your spiritual ears within you by tuning it by obeying the Word of God. Here goes the blessing of heaven in to you...say Amen to receive it by faith! Pray With Me Dear Saints : "Dear Father God, we praise you for your constant love towards us and your desire to bless us more and more for your Glory. Help me give attention to your words and incline my inner ear to hear your voice within my heart and obey it by faith. Thank you for all your blessing that you are pouring on me already through your written Word, thank you for pouring upon my life your Spirit and in the life of all my family members. I can hear you Spirit say your word again and again....In Jesus name. Amen!"
"He who has knowledge spares his words." (Prov.17:27, NKJV).
Knowledge is the collection of information in our mind about all things, but knowledge in itself is not useful to our day to day life unless we have wisdom to use the knowledge we have for each particular situations in our day to day life to solve the problems of life and be successful in applying it practically as much as possible. The Word of God says, "How can men be wise? The only way to begin is by reverence for God. For growth in wisdom comes from obeying his laws. Praise his name forever." (Psa 111:10, LB). In other words, we can acquire all the knowledge in the world, there is no end, but to become wise to use wisdom and have understanding we have to begin and grow in our reverence towards God. The real growth in wisdom will only come to us from God from time to time at the point of our need, when we choose to obey His laws and praise His name for everything we achieve forever. Praise the Lord! For example we see, that when we know that God is on our side and the outcome for a problem God has already shown to us so as to make us understand that it will happen in a particular way in God's time, then all we need to do is to stay silent in faith and have patience when people rage against us to harm us because of their hate and prejudice towards us for no valid reason. When God's time comes, they will be ashamed of themselves while we will rejoice in the Glory of God. Do you know that in the Book of Proverbs a verse speaks and the opposite of it is spoken in the very next verse, here it is, " 4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like him. 5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes." (Prov 26:4-5). Though the above two verses look contradictory oxymoron, yet it is not Biblically. In other words, there is a time to talk to fools according to their folly, that is when arguing with a rebel, we should not use foolish arguments as he does or in the way he does, or we will become as foolish as he is! So it is better to prick his conceit with silly replies! But there are other times, when the fool thinks that he has become so wise in his own eyes with money and people power behind him so as to disrespectfully and violently act before us and try to harm us to make us fearful who fear the Lord, in those times let us stay silent knowing that God is going to make a turn around to justify us who believe Him because he has said that vengeance in His. Pride in the heart of a rebel will always come and make him to be full of rage before he falls in to pit of destruction he has dug by the power of God. To the wise it is a sign from God to stay silent. So there is place to stay silent and a place to talk with silly replies to a fool. To have wisdom is to know the difference between those times we should stay silent, and at other times talk silly replies to a prating fool, this intuition comes from the Lord and this is true wisdom of God. Many times in my own life I have experienced this phenomenon of God's wisdom where the Holy Spirit has kept my mouth silent and at other times gave me wisdom enough to answer a foolish person with a silly reply according to his own folly. Glory to God! Praise the Lord! When you are connected closely with God in intimacy, even the words you speak will be the words of the Holy Spirit who will speak through you wisely. Praise the Lord! Pray With Me Saints : "Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for your wisdom, knowledge and understanding that you have already given me in Christ Jesus. I am complete in Him spiritually. Help me grow in the knowledge that comes from above, that is from your Holy Spirit, and help me live a life pleasing to you always. Help me spare my words when it is not needed, and also speak to prick the fools conceit with silly replies when a rebel tries to argue with me so that I will not be like him, though I know that with love I need to handle even foolish people who do not have reverence for You. May my life glorify you in Jesus name. Amen!"

"The greatest mysteries of the Bible are not revealed by God to scholars of it, but the spiritual babies who are longing and crying for more of the milk of the Word of God and desiring to grow in Him constantly to eat the meat of the Word of God. The growth in spirituality to understand the Scripture doesn't stop with head knowledge, but rather the power of it will be experienced by these spiritual babes who are becoming sons and daughters of God more and more each passing day, and they will demonstrate and express through their own lives what it means to be spiritual to the world around them. Spirituality is not a mirage, but rather it is a oasis where only those of His children favored by God live constantly and enjoy the shade and abundant water fountains and rivers of God their Father in the midst of this dry spiritual desert of this world." — Abraham Israel
"Your destiny is only as big as the God you believe, never underestimate the power of believing." — Abraham Israel
"To err is human, but to learn from our mistakes and avoid it to live victoriously day by day is Divine wisdom directing our life to the path of His Glory! You are only as good as how you learn to adapt in life by the grace of God and excel by it strength and power." — Abraham Israel
"A monkey can imitate the learned human, but only humans can read and understand the language they know or learn because only humans are created in the image of God to have understanding to know, speak, relate and have relationship with God and fellow humans and even with animals, birds and sea creatures. No matter how much a monkey imitates humans, it still stays as monkey. But only those foolish enough to go to the debased monkey's level of thinking start believing that humans came from monkey. So let us praise God that we have been made different from all the animals, birds and sea creatures, that is right in the image and glory of God our Father in heaven." — Abraham Israel
"Finding our rest in anyone or anything other than God himself, is an illusion and a mirage of rest that brings unrest more and more as we go further and further in that path in our lives. Rest in none but Christ, your best in this life and the life to come, the best is yet to come for all those who by faith see a glorious outcome, and continue to put their trust in none but in only Him for a eternal refuge in times of trouble and an oasis of rest all around us when He stays at the center." — Abraham Israel
