This is the reaction to somebody who has a lot to say but doesn’t get involved.
"People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care."
If you are really humble, then why can’t you be taught?
If you are really humble, then why can’t you accept correction?
If you are really humble, why can’t you submit?
If you are really humble, why don’t you listen with your heart instead of looking for things to argue about?
If you are truly humble, why do you insist on your will to be done?
If you are truly humble, why do you keep on talking about what you think is right for you?
If you are truly humble, why do you depend on your own understanding? Why do you keep on defending your own view of yourself and of others and of the world?
If you are truly humble, why do you not listen to what God is saying about you and your situation and your feelings?
If you are really humbling yourself, why are you not seeking Him with all your heart?
Is it possible that you are just looking for sympathy?
And that you really don’t want to change for what is right, for what is good and you just want to be tolerated in the mess you are in?
Could it be that you are, in truth, full of pride that you think you own yourself and you hold the future?
But make no mistake! God didn’t make a mistake on how He created you. And He has the best plan for you.
God gave you life. He created you. He sent His Son to die in your behalf so that you can have life, real life, in its abundance and fullness. God owns you! Not yourself, not sin, not your own sense of identity (or whatever the world deceives you with). Any other kind of identity you find outside of Him is a lie and is less than the best and leads to destruction. If you really want to know who you are, seek Him, know Him, know His Word. If you are really sincere to find the truth about yourself, look for God, the One who loves you unconditionally.
And if you are really humble, you will receive what He has for you, you will listen to what He has to say.
And if you find yourself actually proud, you can always ask Him for humility.
AND if you find God and truly know Him, humility (and consequently obedience) won’t be so hard, then.
And we have a promise from Him:
Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
And I will cleanse them from all the guilt and iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will forgive all their guilt and iniquities by which they have sinned and rebelled against Me.
(Jeremiah 33:3, 8, AMP)
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. 14 I will be found by you,” says the Lord…
Rise up, beloved.
You are more than that.
You are very precious and highly valued.
You are a treasure.
Excessive, irrational zeal.
wildly excessive or irrational devotion, dedication, or enthusiasm
Question: Is there a zeal that is irrational or excessive? Kaya nga zeal di ba?
What if ‘fanaticism’ is just a mythical excuse of the skeptics who haven’t found the reason (at least, not yet) to risk it all (literally)?
I’m about to post a while ago while thinking of all the mess I brought myself into (yeah! I’m still saying it’s my fault, but anyways) these two words: I’m sure. :)
Not a shout but a cool, statement of a fact. I am sure.
I am sure that things will work out.
I am sure of God’s rescue.
Now I’m seeing more and more how I know sooo little of who God is.
Like~ I don’t know how He’s gonna do it, I don’t know how He’s gonna work all things for my good, I don’t know how He’s gonna make me love Him again and even more and even deeper than I did in the past, I don’t know how He’s going to fulfill His purposes in my life.
But I know He’s gonna do it. I know He hasn’t stop moving. I know He hasn’t stop waiting. I know He hasn’t stop pursuing. I know He hasn’t stop working. I know He hasn’t stop believing. I know He hasn’t stop loving.
I know He didn’t stop being faithful.
God is the same.
God is still good. God is still on the throne. And God is still in love.
Then I read this words in a post made by a good friend ‘Faith is being sure.’
And it hit me. I’m sure. And that means, I am believing again. Oh yes, I’m getting healed. And it feels good. :D
Thank You Tay!
Oh words, how could you be so beautiful that you can make me feel like I’m on cloud nine?
Oh words, how can you be so encouraging that I feel like I can defeat an entire army of enemies?
Oh words, what is it in you that can light up a hope even in the midst of a bleak ruins?
But oh, how can you be so devastating at the same time that some can pierce right through my soul and makes me want to give up and surrender?
I cannot touch you but you are as real as the earth I walk on.
And I cannot deny your power. I may not bleed a single drop of blood when you’re used as a weapon against me but it is quite enough to discourage my soul.
How will I ever fight you if you become my enemy?
How will I ever ignore you if you are from somebody who matters to me?
How can I give you away with every intent true and not just mere uttering?
In choosing whom to listen to and what words to speak to me, I have yet a lot to learn.
But for now, perhaps I can somehow express how my heart is by a little play with you.
