Thirst for the living God…

Thirst for the living God.. Not for any name or fame.. But for the true survival of our souls. The thirst may make us feel utterly poor, if we are’nt filled up by the Holy One..
This thirst  lead us into tears
and we seem to be sad in our spirits wanting to be filled up with.. We truly feel the poverty within us , the nothingness, & yearn for the Lord for Himself to be entered into us & satisfy our souls.It is then we are actually get filled up with the glorious power of the Lord. Let us have that poverty feeling till we get filled up with..
Again thirst for a closer fellowship with Him.. In this manner we are growing our Christian lives more towards Jesus our Lord..The more the thirst is ,the more we receive..  Lord says it is a blessing to be poor in Spirit, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. Happy are those who are sad: for they will be comforted. Holy Spirit is the greatest comforter. How blessed are we if we have this comforter always within us , living in us as the life-giving spirit.
Desire Him, dear friends.

A Heart that panthers for the Lord will be happy & will be filled

Php 4:4 Be glad in the Lord at all times: again I say, Be glad.
 Happy is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and whose mind is on his law day and night.
And the peace of God, which is deeper than all knowledge, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Ps 37:3 Have faith in the Lord, and do good; be at rest in the land, and go after righteousness. So will your delight be in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.Put your life in the hands of the Lord; have faith in him and he will do it.
“Thou leadeth us unto the evergreen pastures.”

Ps 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
The words of a sheep .. of the one who knows His shepherd well. Only The Shepherd (His Savior and Lord and God) can make him lie in green pastures & lead him into still waters.. The strong , faith-working heart of the sheep has a very strong knowledge of His very shepherd. The sheep’s heart’s desire is all the time those green pastures & the still waters. The colored nature of this world or the gushy, noisy ocean it holds has nothing to do with the heart of the sheep that always longs for the King , the shepherd. It panthers for those still waters as a deer panthers. Panthers for the living God..
Why it is panthering for the Living God?
Because it knows that God is its portion forever.
 Yes, God is my portion forever.. Hence I live and rejoice in Him always!!
Mt 5:3,4 Happy are the poor in spirit: for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. Happy are those who are sad: for they will be comforted.

 To the sheep that panthers for the living waters, yes, there is awaiting an abundant supply of the heavenly rain, the gushy stream..
Holy Spirit is waiting to fill the spirits who thirst for Him badly..
Our thirst should give us a poverty feeling.. A feeling that we lack something which is very much in need.. As the deer that panthers for the living waters, so be our spirits too..
Thirst is the ideal thing to be filled..

From the Book- Visions Heaven and Hell- by John Bunyan

“But besides all the happiness that comes to us by our communion with God and with each other, it is to me a mighty happiness to understand all the deep mysteries of religion which the wisest in the world below could not fully understand. Here we discern a perfect harmony between those scripture texts that in the world below seemed to oppose each other. And here we are especially filled with wonder and gratitude at discovering the divine goodness towards each one of us in particular. In respect to my former life on earth, I have seen the mercifulness of those very afflictions that I once (when upon earth) thought to show His anger. I am now fully convinced that no affliction that I met with in the world below (and I met with many) either came sooner or fell heavier or continued longer than was needful. My hopes were not disappointed, but God used all things to prepare me for a better eternal reward than what I had hoped for.

A secret life with Christ

Desire for a secret life with Christ. That is the most valuable thing in the present life to eternity. Only a secret life with Christ will be richly rewarded in Heaven.
“If then you have a new life with Christ, give your attention to the things of heaven, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Keep your mind on the higher things, not on the things of earth.For your life on earth is done, and you have a secret life with Christ in God. At the coming of Christ who is our life, you will be seen with him in glory.”
Desire no more the earth or the earthly things. Instead keep your mind in heaven where you are going to stay your eternity. Gather up treasures there. All your secret hidden good deeds in Christ will be honored much there.

Seeing God in your life..

No man has seen God at any time;

the only Son, who is on the breast of the Father, he has made clear what God is.

No one can see God ,because God is Spirit(Joh 4:24).

But Jesus has made clear what God is. Jesus is the manifestation of God in flesh,
a manifestation that human eyes can perceive.
Those who saw Jesus, have seen God.(Joh 12:45).
Jesus is the only name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Neither is there salvation in any other (Acts 4:12)

He gave men the power to become the sons of God

” But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
Joh 1:12

To all those believed Him,to them Jesus gave the authority to be called the children of God.

The Son of God(JESUS) is transforming us into children of God when we believe in Him,

when we believe Him as the Son of God, when we recieve Him into our life..
Those who believe in Him truly will enjoy a new life..
a new abundant life.
Jesus said I came into this world to gave u a life that is abundant..
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10
AMEN! God Bless

LOVE – Jesus Taught

LOVE – Jesus Taught

1. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

2. Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

3 . Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

4. Love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

5. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

6. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

7. If ye love me, keep my commandments.

8. He that hath my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

9. If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

10. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

11. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love;

12. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends Jesus, our Lord and our High Priest (the greatest lover of mankind), has laid down His life for us.

Joh 21:15 ‘So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.’

As He asked to Peter He asks us also , calling us by our name , “lovest thou me more than these?”… And what will be our answer..???????

What do we  say back to Him that loveth us so much. Let us love Him with the whole of our heart , that is the first commandment He taught.

Mr 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments… Let nothing hold us back from loving Him or keeping His commandments.
