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
Remembering GOD is great
Bible says in Genesis that the LORD spoke the world into
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.
“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,
marked off the heavens by the span,
And calculated the dust
of the earth by the measure,
weighed the mountains in a balance
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
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
“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.”
What if the Lord had not been on our side?
Let all Israel repeat:
2 What if the Lord had not been on our side
when people attacked us?
3 They would have swallowed us alive
in their burning anger.
4 The waters would have engulfed us;
a torrent would have overwhelmed us.
5 Yes, the raging waters of their fury
would have overwhelmed our very lives.
6 Praise the Lord,
who did not let their teeth tear us apart!
7 We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap.
The trap is broken, and we are free!
8 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
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.
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not
shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it
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.
Yet I am confident I
will see the Lord’s goodness
while I am here in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for
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.
The Mighty One, God, the
Lord! The Mighty One, God, the Lord! He knows, and let Israel itself know!
Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong
and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
