God Hears Your Prayer

There is alot of bad things happening in this world, war in Iraq, terrorism, racism. People think why would God allow such things, well the fact is that He doesn’t want those things to happen to us, but they are there because this world is full of sin and people have made a decision not to obey God.

However even through our disobedience God can still forgive us, there is not a sin too great for God to forgive. The only thing we need to do is come back to Him. When we pray and cry out to Him, our prayers are heard.

Whatever your needs are, cry out to God, come to Him and He will hear your prayers, just like how He heard the prayers of Israel when they were enslaved by the Egyptians.

Thank you Lord that you care so much about us that you hear each and every one of our prayers. I pray that you would meet my needs for today Lord and that I can be a blessing to the people around me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

New Job, New Year

I have confirmed that I will be starting at my new job on the 4th of December. Praise God, prayer really works! The company is bigger than my current company now, and I will be getting more pay. The best thing about it, is that I will meet new people that I can witness to.

Another testimony I have is that, I am now officially 23 years young! Praise God that He has brought me this far. I still can’t fathom the fact that I am 23! that’s twenty-three!…

God is awesome, He has been so good. Thank you Lord, I pray that you would help me to become stronger as I grow more and more in you and as I walk with you. Forgive me Lord for the sins I have committed, help me to learn from my mistakes. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Education

Education is important, even Jesus had to go through a period of learning. Had he not done that, He would not have known the scriptures to be able to fight the devil, and to teach in the synagogues. Sometimes we see education as a chore, something we must do, even though we don’t really want to. Education plays a big part in your life, without education you cannot grow in knowledge and wisdom.

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge” – 2 Peter 1:5

I’m glad I did university, from my degree I have gained the skills necessary to make me someone that is useful in my workplace. If you live a country where education is freely given, think about all the other children living in third-world countries who don’t have the luxury of free education. We have education and yet we want to throw it away. Learn to appreciate the education that you have, because through it, you will have the chance to become great one day.

Technology

Being a computer engineer I have always worked with technology, and so it has always been normal for me to be able to do all the cool things I do. One client my work has was amazed at how you could control a computer remotely. Whereas the engineers like myself would never think of it like that.

It’s like that when you’ve been a Christian for so long, you get so “used to it” that you forget how amazing your life is compared to what it used to be. You forget that feeling of salvation when you first accepted Jesus into your hearts. Blogger seems to be having problems, but I’m glad God is always there, no matter what. Even though you may not appreciate Him, God is always faithful, for he loves each and everyone of us unconditionally.

Give thanks for everything that you have no matter how big or small.
“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Thank you Jesus for the amazing life you have given me and I know that the journey is still a long way to go. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Eternal Gladness and Peace

We all want to be glad, we want to be happy. However nothing in this world can truly give us true happiness, because everything in this world is temporal. Only Jesus can give us true happiness because:

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8

God is not limited and so happiness from God is not limited.

There are many people in this world that live their lives with great sadness, either because they don’t have Christ in them or they have yet to receive the joy that is from the Lord. When we are Christians we have the right to be able to receive joy. It is the fruit of the spirit. Many people don’t have this joy because of the way people treat them. People long to be loved by other people, they want others to be nice to them.

“There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?” LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.” – Psalm 4:6

Other people are humans just like us, they are not perfect, they still make mistakes. We can’t totally rely on others to be our happiness. However Jesus will never betray you, God will never leave you nor forsake you.

Thank you Lord that we can have full confidence in you, that you will never leave us nor forsake us. Lord I pray that as I live each day, may the joy that is from you radiate through my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Job Interview

This afternoon I will be going for a job interview at Digitus Information Systems. I’m not really sure what to expect, but I believe that God has already gone before me. Whatever doors are meant to be opened, He will open, and likewise whatever doors need to be closed, He will close.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” – James 1:5

If you lack wisdom today, ask God to give you wisdom in whatever area it is and He will give it to you. God is not stingy, He wants to bless you.

Thank you Lord for the interview I have today, thank you Lord that you have made the way before me. I ask Lord that you would grant me wisdom for this interview. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

No Pain, No Gain

Throughout the book of Job, we see that Job is basically stripped of everything, his property, his livestock, even his family and friends go against him. We need to understand that when we face a trial, it is required so that we may be able to grow. For us to get stronger we need to exercise and as the saying goes “no pain, no gain”.

Whenever we come to a problem it is easy to just give up and let the problem take over. However if we have God in us, who can be against us. There is not a problem too big for God.

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31

For a plant to grow it must go through the harsh conditions of the weather, the hot sun, the thundering rain. This is why it is important that we make sure we are firmly rooted in Jesus. Only through Jesus can we get through these trials and problems in our lives. If it wasn’t for Jesus, I would have caved in a long time ago, but because of Him, I am able to keep going, from glory to glory.

Lord, I thank you that you are a dependable God. Thank you God that through the trials and problems in my life that you use them to help me to grow and become more like you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
