A King!

A King

Any child,.. A boy or a girl would be momentarily filled with awe and wonder as they hear the words King, Queen, Prince, Princess, Fort, kingdom and horses.

It is quite interesting and enthralling to think and fantasize the time and life of Kings. The diamond studded crown, the long cape, big castles, shiny clothes and the elaborate feast, the anecdotes of their valor leads us to countless wild imagination.

Little did we know that if we had lived those times we mostly would have been a farmer, a soldier, a helper or commoner on the side of the road hailing and bowing giving our respects to the King as pompously passes in his Chariot declaring his authority. Not sure if those people gave that honor with genuine reverence. Your logical mind could readily say that they were afraid, they feared to be called out by King’s officials.

This King who is rich, who has a palace and army protects the people and the land. But this is how he does…He takes the land from the people, he takes their produce, and he takes the money from his people as tax. In return he offers his protection. And that’s the King we are all mesmerized about.

Friends, today I want to remind you, we have a King,.. A KING of Kings 

Who Doesn’t take,…but  gives!

Who doesn’t commands,…but loves!

Who doesn’t scare,…but protects!

Who doesn’t plucks,…but provides!

Who doesnt Judge,...but saves!

Who is faithful,… to faithless!

Who calls all subjects as HIS Heir…!

And that’s the King of Kings who deserves all your action and attention! That’s the King who waits to crown with you glory and honor!

Come rejoice our king with me!

All Hail to King Jesus! Amen!

I came across this below social media post by a friend of mine. He always post positive ideas and try pump to up the feelings and passion of the heart (human will power). I dont take them too serious.

I always feel that every post of my friend has already been promised by the LORD and I don’t have to work thru my will but I receive them thru the power of Christ. However, this post of him touched my heart and needless to say that my thoughts raced back and forth on my life.

There are 2 things that stood apart for me
1.      Greatness of GOD
2.      Remembering GOD is great

Bible says in Genesis that the LORD spoke the world into existence.

1.      Greatness of GOD
As a human if you speak or command, you might or might not get things done.

·        At work, reporting team members might honor your words and get the work done for they might think you have the authority or you have the expertise in that matter or to get the work done out of their plate or get the work done for their own good. If they strongly disagree with what you have to say then that is another story.

·        At home, family might or might not honor our words. That’s another complex story to deal with right now.

Why,… we hardly keep up with our own words. A help promised to a friend, A dinner date to your spouse, A toy for your child, A resolution taken for yourself etc.

My point – words in our world is so delicate and flimsy. Easy to break and blow away like a dust in a wind.

Yet, those words in GOD’s lips become life.

In Bible, we see GOD spoke and there we see millions of stars and planets formed. Galaxies came into existence. It was no accident. There was no chaos. They have perfect rhythm and harmony. They revolve and rotate in perfect pace and timing. They stand in its place it is supposed to be. It is amazing and wonderful to think further and further about the beautiful universe around us.

Psalm 33:8-9  “Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.   For He spoke, and it was done;  He commanded, and it stood fast.”
GOD is surely BIG,..And BIG is a word that does no justice to what HE really is. So is the case with every synonym of BIG.

Isaiah 40: 12 (NASB)

“12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
And marked off the heavens by the span,
And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?

2.      Remembering GOD is GREAT!
If people remember or not, the fact remains the same -  GOD is BIG, Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent.
I believe the better use of Human Memory is to remember and not to regret. Always remember the good and bad things. Good things are to reminisce the blessings and Bad things to amuse over the offered grace. This is the constant exercise of my heart. Right or Wrong, this is my best use of memories esp. of the trials and afflictions.
Truly I have been in that place. I did not know the know way out. I was like this scared kid (Young Lamb) bruised, traumatized to take the next step.
All I could do mostly was cry and when I am in senses I prayed and that feeble prayer were heard by our GOD and Savior LORD Jesus Christ who let me out of the pit
Psalm 40:2    “He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings.”

Psalm 124
What if the Lord had not been on our side?
    Let all Israel repeat:
What if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us?
They would have swallowed us alive
    in their burning anger.
The waters would have engulfed us;
    a torrent would have overwhelmed us.
Yes, the raging waters of their fury
    would have overwhelmed our very lives.
Praise the Lord,
    who did not let their teeth tear us apart!
We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap.
    The trap is broken, and we are free!
Our help is from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth

And this exercise helps me to comprehend the GREATNESS of the LORD in my perspective and in my words. It helps me to finally get it in my own term that how great is HE (in me than the one in the world). As I play this tape again and again with added knowledge of Bible, it gets engraved in my heart with additional details.

And next time, I stumble across a problem all I could think of is my past victories over the trials with HIS help not the fear gripping moments.

You and I have to practice this act of remembrance!

Dear Friend, today you might be basking in the goodness of the LORD’s abundance and prosperity… Hallelujah! Exclaim HIS power saying that LORD is GOOD and HE is MIGHTY.
You might be walking thru the Valley of death, EXALT that the LORD is great to part the red sea for you.
Isaiah 59:1   Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear.
Jeremiah 32:27   Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me?
Waiting for the LORD is good (Psalm 27) coz you will dwell in the land of goodness. And that’s a good place to be.

Psalm 27:13-14
Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness
    while I am here in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for the Lord.
    Be brave and courageous.
    Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

Remember we serve a MIGHTY GOD!

Deuteronomy 7:21   You shall not dread them, for the Lord your God is among you, a mighty and terrible God.
Deuteronomy 10:17     For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, the terrible God, Who is not partial and takes no bribe.
Joshua 22:22    The Mighty One, God, the Lord! The Mighty One, God, the Lord! He knows, and let Israel itself know!
Psalm 24:8   Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
