Pay attention God Speaks To Us Through Various Ways
Recently, my son David pay attention and drew this picture during his art lesson. He remained focused and refused being interrupted until he completed this scene. As he explained what he drew, I felt God tugged on my heart string.
‘A storm coming, lots of rain, flood, houses and people in the water.’ He continued. I had a chill running up my spine. I wondered how much my son knew about what the news forecast over the hurricane Florence. Was he aware?
This picture that he drew was a couple of days before the hurricane. This is likely coming from God because I have never seen David that focused before.
He remained determine to complete it without being interrupted. He had to get it out of his head. Like I said, God speaks! We need to pay attention and listen.
Pay attention! In 2004, God spoke to me through a dream.
To this day, the dream I had remained clear and vivid in my head. The year 2004 between December 24th – 25th, I had a dream. I dreamed that I got trapped between a fire (outside) and a wall. I was not in danger that I knew.
The fire was huge and stirred a fear within me. I touched the wall and it was hot. Much later I shared this dream with my sister. She had a vision of that sort as well.
The difference was I did not pray and I fell asleep. Then a major news broke out on December 26th, 2004.
Hundreds of thousands of people died as a result of a massive tsunami that hit Aceh in Indonesia and other parts of South East Asia.
It brought me tears and regret for ignoring the warning. How did I know? After talking it over with my sister, I realized God spoke and I never pay attention.
Today, I pay attention and pray when God speaks
Sometimes, it takes us a while to realize the seriousness that when God speaks, He wants us to pay attention and listen to Him. Lives may depend on our action and willingness to seek God for answers.
Take God’s prompting seriously. Pay attention and listen when He speaks! Listen and pay attention to this. You are God’s ambassador.
God works through your obedience. It is a privilege to work as His hands and feet.
When will the grace of God end? Have you ever ponder on this question? Did anyone tell you the grace of God never ends? Let’s explore this question today, shall we?
To begin, we need to ask ourselves: ‘What does it mean?’ According to Google,
So grace is favor, “unmerited favor.” Grace is, therefore, God’s unmerited favor – His goodness toward those who have no claim on, nor reason to expect, divine favor. The principal manifestation of God’s grace has heen in the form of a gift.
Every one knows that. According to Google, it is God’s undeserved favor to people. We stand on a principle that is totally dependent on His favor. So, we do not have the right to claim His favor? Am I right or do you disagree? In other word, it’s all up to Him to grant His favor. Having that understanding, let’s explore further.
Is it conditional? What does that mean? In other word, it is:
subject to one or more conditions or requirements being met; made or granted on certain terms. (Google)
In fact ‘conditional’is the key word in my discussion today. Let’s look at the Bible and see what God says, shall we? If you click on the link, you notice some verses that talk about it. You will discover, God’s favor is dependent on 2 key phrases. The words ‘faith’ and ‘Jesus Christ’ appear often in connection to it. Here are some examples: Ephesians 2:8-9, 2 Peter 1:2
‘ For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.’
‘ Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord .’
Now, according to Google, the principal manifestation of God’s favor has heen in the form of a gift. That is rightfully so. The ‘gift’ is spoken as the gift of Salvation. In many ways, it is granted to those who receive and or believe. So, to apply this grace of God to an unbeliever, is a wrong teaching. It does not apply to those who disbelieve. That is one condition. Clearly, this message applies to the believers of Jesus Christ. If we who then received it and yet continually sin against His Holy Spirit. What will become of us?
Remember the story Ananias and Sapphira? Did they die after sinning against the Holy Spirit? Today, we teach others it’s okay to sin as long as you ask God for forgiveness later. That is so wrong.. God’s grace is not a license to sin.
Then we teach that the grace of God never ends to an unbeliever. That is another wrong. We need to preach God’s holiness and repentance instead. Grace is a call to holiness. Repentance is the key to receive God’s grace, God’s forgiveness and God’s love. If we never understood this, we’re preaching the wrong Gospel.
Do we need to wake up? Yes! When will grace end? When we deliberately sin against the Holy Spirit and refuse to repent repeatedly. It’s about time we take the Word of God seriously.
Do you need to come before God and confess your sins against the Holy Spirit today? Come to Him.. He’s waiting for you. Get right with God today.
Message – The Trumpet Has sounded 05 16 2011
God gave me a message to share today. Take heed and keep this message in your heart. This message if taken to heart can change your life as well as your family. Take your salvation and family seriously.
It is our honor to welcome our latest contributors and writers to DOTA, Felecia Wong and Emily Hostetler. As we look forward to their contributions to DOTA (Daughters Of The Almighty) and making DOTA a better collection of inspirational blogs that brings glory to God. DOTA is continually searching for women of God to arise from the obscurity. The hidden vessels that need to be brought to the light so others can see the glory of God’s work in and through their lives.
Since early this week, I have a deep burden to cry out to God for those who are yet to be saved in our family. Seeking God to be merciful to our next generation and their children and generations to come. I want God to pursue them in the same manner He pursued us many years ago. For those of us who are saved, aren’t you grateful, honored and feel blessed that God in His compassion chose you to be His people and His beloved? What about your children? Your sister or brother and even parents who have not yet known God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Will you allow them to go to Hell without hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ while you enjoy the blessing of eternity without those whom you love? Wake up Christians! God is calling us to rise up and take on this battle with the evil ones and change the future of our beloved. In Ephesians 6:10 – 20, the Bible says:
Prayer Warrior Strategy For Saving Your Family
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
As God calls and charges us to take on this battle with Him, He reveals great mystery as it happens in the Heavenly. However, do not be afraid as He reveals even more mystery to us as we continue to seek Him and finds time to hear from Him. It is knowledge we need to know to be ready for the coming of our Lord Jesus, the second time. This is the best time to dig into the Word of God (Bible) and starts to read the Book of Revelation about what’s going to happen in the end time. I charge you to seek and hear from God today!
Watch Out For Tell-Tale Signs
What are Tell-Tale Signs? They are warnings that we need to take note. They tell us something is not right. We need help. Take Tell-tale signs positively because if we listen to them and make the changes, our lives will get better.
Inspiration For Today:
Just like a solar-powered digital watch requires sunshine to work , so are we as followers of Jesus Christ. We need God’s light to work well. – E. G. D
Do you feel so exhausted even without doing anything lately? I know I do for the last 2-3 days. Often when we are sick, our bodies fight against the unwelcome bacteria within our bodies to get rid of them, simply because they do not belong there. When our immune system is fighting hard to get rid of the bacteria, it shows through our exterior bodies. Without the immune system, we are dead. God has given me a message this morning. And I hope it would bless you more than anything today.
