"I believe, whatever desires we may have in our hearts as Christians, the Holy Spirit has a big role to that. He will implant desires in our hearts--for His kingdom and purpose, but it is to Us, who will discern it and put it into Action."
You know how to remember the promises You've made to Your people. Your concern covers all what it takes for You-- Your Son, Jesus Christ bears the consequences of our sins just to complete the promise You've made to us!
He died and rose again; now, it's Complete!
“Pumayat ka!” (You've lost weight.) This is one of greatest compliment I have received last month. Two months ago, I’ve decided to try shedding some pounds off since my weight gain from 52kg to 56 kg. I made a goal to reach the weight I had when I came to SG which was 50kg. I set goals, prayed for it and disciplined myself to eat a healthy diet in the way I possibly can. One morning as I pondered on my weight loss goal, I started thinking, “How you're managing your weight now is actually similar to how you manage your relationship with God.”
Proverbs 17:17 - "A friend love at all times, a brother is born in adversity"
"Friendship should be the foundation of a long and sweet relationship. Just as who Jesus is to us. In no accident time, He found us. He want to offer friendship to us. If we will only give it a try to His offer. Our trust, our commitment and our faith will be fully developed, if we will take the offer of Friendship, He is offering us. Sooner or later, this friendship will become a RELATIONSHIP TO HIM!"
He faced his giant by obeying, trusting, peristence to get his blessing and depending fully to God. His relationship with God made his giant gone. And made his giant as a channel to flow the blessings that is promised to him. He has won a renewed relationship with his brother and blessing along his way. Jacob has won his victory.
