Recharging


God bless you,

This morning I just want to encourage you to listen what God is trying to tell you. Be still and let Him do the work. If your constantly talking your so caught up in what you are doing and don’t have the time to listen. In our daily life it is important to listen to what people is trying to say, to filter what is important for you and to listen to God what He is telling you to do with the information that you received. #recharging #break #listening #refill #silence

James 1:19The Message (MSG)

19-21 Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.

Jesus made sure that everything was plain and clear explained to us. This is what He Said in John 14:26The Message (MSG)

25-27 “I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.

Be sensitive to the voice of God. Let the Holy Spirit minister to you. Don’t be your own boss but let Jesus own the throne of your heart.

Be blessed.

Feeling the shift but not shifting..


God bless you,

Today I’m writing about the fact that you know that there is shift coming but at the end your at the same place. Or the fact you feel like your on a level for a long time but your not moving forward, it seems like your been stuck for quite a time and you just don’t know why. Well we as Christians want grow but we don’t want to leave things behind we want to carry the whole baggage of years ago into something new and God has been telling you for a while you have to let go but your not letting go. Realise and understand this in order for God to shape you into His own image; every time that a shifting must take place in your life you must leave something behind there need to be a sacrifice in your life. It will cost you something, it is the price you have to pay.

You see the scripture says in Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)

1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

For you to grow and to be promoted by God you have to do something for in return. When you came to Christ you had to made the decision between staying in the world or start following Jesus, Accept His living terms for things to work out for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. You had to look at your friendships you have build through year and choose who you will hang with, who will contribute to your new life in Christ. You had to look through your habits and make the decision to quit smoking, dealing drugs, selling yourself for a cheap price and being used by others. Sometimes you have indeed let go but there is still something from the past living in you. A rage, a pain or another baggage you don’t want anyone to know off.

shifting

Every lift as a description of how much weight you can bring into before the door closes and take you to another floor. And you may try to take more and later find out the lift wont work and your stuck in the lift. It’s the same with sometimes He asks from us to break friendships that are not fruitful, sometimes He requires us to be alone so He can deal with us, He even sometimes ask us to throw things out we don’t want to get rid of. This is a sacrifice you have to make.

I can remember my first time flying to Holland I packed my bags but I had overweight and the price I had to pay was so extremely high that there was no other option to leave some behind. And I’m opening this luggage and wondering of which peace of clothing I will leave behind this can be stressful. So I  had to be brave and make a sacrifice (for me it felt that way, love shopping) and leave a quart of it out. You see and when I finally got here I forgot completely of those clothes because now I was elsewhere where shopping was on a whole other level. Every stage brings his own things. #lifelessons

You see Elijah was the master of Elisha and Elisha knew He was going to loose Elijah. Elijah twice tried to leave Elisha behind but it didn’t work cause Elisha was determined to go with him. So Elijah asked Him what is it you want me to do for you before I depart. Elisha answered and said that he wanted to be Him with the same anointing. Elijah replied that is gonna be difficult but when God glory come and you are looking than you will receive what was mine. So it happens. This was planned long before so it worked out for good. (Passage 2 Kings 2:1-14) It was not meant to be for them to be forever together. A new level started for Elisha when Elijah was taken from him.

Be blessed.

Blessings & Friends..


God bless you,

This morning (day) I want to write you about the reality that we sometimes encounter ourself in. The fact that you ask God to bless someone and the fact you wish them all the best in every area of their life and than when God does so it seems like you are getting mad about the fact that God blessed the brother or the sister but you have been left out. Suddenly you don’t know how to treat them right and with respect because all your mind is focused on is the blessing they just got. (I’m really writing to someone) Sometimes you have friends that wishes you all the best and when God takes you to another level they suddenly cannot handle you anymore. This life everyone has to live individually, everybody grows individually, salvation is individually, so you cannot expect us to be on the same level constantly. It is not a competition, because in every stage there is something to learn a test to pass.

Sometimes you don’t even realise what struggles and demons someone had to fight before getting where they are in life today. The only thing you think is God I’ve been living good, obedient, I’ve been doing everything according the scripture but still you blessed them instead of me. In the story of the prodigal son at some point the oldest son said to his father all this time i’ve been working hard for you, i’ve been on your side and now this son of yours comes home he spend all his money on whores and you go out and throw him a feast? The father replied to him; “31-32 “His father said, ‘Son, you don’t understand. You’re with me all the time, and everything that is mine is yours—but this is a wonderful time, and we had to celebrate. This brother of yours was dead, and he’s alive! He was lost, and he’s found!’” (Luke 11:31-32) In this story you can see that this youngest son struggled with life after he wasted all his money and than come to the realisation that if I work for my father I may have food to eat at the end of the day.

realness

Testimony: I was away for some time handling some things that had to be dealt with. It required from that often I was on the road to have this done in orde for me to get home. One Sunday I get a message that a old fried heard that I was in town but that she didn’t see me, but when she heard I’m on the road with someone else who was helping me at the time with all of these business I had on y plate she got jealous. This friend is someone that I hadn’t spoke with in years we used to be close but know we are on another scale of friendship. I told her that I was not on vacation and that I was in town for business and that time is short for me to visit all these people that expect me to come by. I know that in the time I was off that God hands and favor went before me, doors were opening in such a way that you could see difference, you could have seen God’s glory, so I know what it was what she felt. The point here is we are to caught up to see how others are doing life and forgetting to focus on or own and than blessings come and you aren’t ready for it.

This is what I want to close with its a scripture in 1 Corinthians 13:1-7

“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

This is what the bible says love thy neighbour as you love yourself. If you can’t love them you have to self search the intentions of thine heart. Check your limit of love before going of blessing everybody and you don’t mean them well to get blessed by the abundance of God.

You may be mad at me for writing this but I want you to realise it and stop looking at life as if someone stole something from you. You have to be openhearted, real in love in order for God to bless you fully.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,

Your presence is better…..


God bless you,

First of all I want to thank my faithful readers that continue to read the blog even thou there was nothing new posted. I appreciate your prayers and the fact that you as reader and follower uphold me. After a few months of struggles and dealing with legal parts after the passing of my mother I’m back. I thank God for His grace and mercy that has kept me so far as I felt I could no longer go on but I knew His presence was there with me along this journey.

Today I want to write you about Moses and the fact that he chose God’s presence over the promise. You see in Exodus 33:3 NIV God says to Moses: “Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way.”

You see God promised them long before that He would take them out from Egypt and away from Pharao, He told them that He was going to bring them elsewhere that is far better than where they are currently are. But God also said that He would not go because they don’t listen they are stubborn and if He goes he would probably kill them along the way. But see in vs.12-15 (you can read all of it till 21)

12 Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ 13 If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”

14 The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

15 Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. 16 How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”

If you read carefully you’ll see that Moses did tell God all the promises He has been making regarding these people. His nation. Than God replied and said My Presence will go with you, and will give you rest. Than Moses replied and said this: “If Your presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.

God promised them something it was time to get up and leave for a situation that was better than the one they wore in but they refused to go if God’s presence wouldn’t go.

exodus33;3-15

Daily you run after promises God has made you but you forget that His presence need to be there in order for things turn out as they should be. Sometimes you run after promises and God’s presence left or even isn’t there anymore. Things don’t go as it should go and you blame God for it or you are disappointed in people because you forget to invite God’s presence to go before you. You need to have the timing to go with God’s presence infront of you.

Lord you promised me a man. And you are off chasing a man and than suddenly you have the man but marriage doen’t go as planned and you realise God’s presence wasn’t even there.

Lord you promised me abundance, prosperity… You are off chasing career and than suddenly you realise that you are far from God and to busy making career and building nice houses and buying the latest car to drive in.

All these things are good when you don’t forget about God and His presence that is required for direction and favor.

There are many people that has all those things but one thing will differentiate you from them. It will be God’s Presence and His glory covering you.

It is better to live in His presence than to take short cuts to the promise without His presence going in front off you.

I much rather stay in Your Presence God than run after promises and later on realise that your presence wasn’t even there or left.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,

S.Domitilia
