Find Your Heart; Find your Means

You can conceive great ideas and logical means of creating wealth . As long as your heart does not condemn your actions, this is possible. For instance, your heart will lead you to your place of destiny, to the place where you will be successful or fulfilled. The scientific function of the heart is to pump and supply blood to every part of the body.

Your Heart- Source of your Mean

This means the heart knows and reaches every part of a human body. It is safe, then, to say that the heart knows every part of the bodies’ need. It can guide you to where your treasure lies.

If your heart is filled with an evil thought, it can only produce evil actions. If you cheat, it’s because you conceive cheating in your heart. If you lie, it’s because your heart has been seared, corrupt and degraded that it cannot hold the truth anymore. If you work hard, it’s because your heart believes working hard is key to success. whatever you do, your heart conceives it. This is why your heart has to be “good” to produce any good actions.

Behind every intentions is a longing heart that serves as a driving, propelling force to fulfill the intentions. Therefore, if you can find your heart, you will be able to find your purpose for existence. If you do this, you may likely provide and meet your own need while fulfilling your longings.

A CPA student’s desire will be to complete the exams and practice or use the certificate to get a better job. The same goes for PMP student, MBA student, Ph.D student and for any profession.

Imagine if the same heart can conceive any evil thought at all. This means that a person can wake up with the soul purpose of carrying out an evil act such as mass shooting or bombing, robbing a bank or cheating.

The more compelling thought is that the heart can hold any thought within a second and can keep such thought (plan) for a very long time—becoming a purpose–with a desire to achieve this purpose. Therefore, if your heart is evil, you are a potential danger to anyone.

Find Your Heart; Find Your Purpose

Your heart will always chase and run after it passions. The heart searches for constant satisfaction  and fulfillment.

Like I said in my previous post, Every time you wish for a thing, it’s because your heart desires it. And when those desires finally become a reality, you feel excited. As a being, we are naturally looking for maximum satisfaction.

Your Heart-Source of your Happiness

This will lead us to defining our purpose because if you know why you exist, why you are here and why you are still breathing, finding your satisfaction won’t be difficult. If you understand your heart and its longings, you will know your purpose for living. Remember, your satisfaction is derived from fulfilling your heart desires.

So, my point is, you get satisfaction when you get what you want or what you are chasing or what you longed for. The question, then, is what are you living for? Why are you still here? Why do you keep doing what you do? If you can answer these questions, you may be able to find fulfillment.

I will walk through examples to help resonate this point. At the dawn of each day, the first thing is to get up and get out to work or do something that resides in your heart. This may be to go to work, complete a project, meet for the conference, call a friend, etc. Once your heart finds its desires, your purpose works to align with it to bring you satisfaction.

The reason you do a thing is because it’s been in your heart over a period of time. Search your heart and your desires will not be too far-fetched.

The longings of your heart ( what you really wish or desire) is your purpose for living.

If your purpose is to make the world a better place, the solution is to find the little you can do to make this a reality. Your purpose may be to help sick people, help young children, assist a manager on a project, complete a task, find the cure to a killer disease, support your community, care for the needy, write good stories for others to read, raise godly kids, serve in your church or community, whatever it is, as long as your purpose is well defined, your heart will work to bring this to satisfaction by acting as your driving force.

Therefore, search your heart and you will find your purpose for living.

As I said, your purpose can be just raising your kids in a godly and acceptable manner while a purpose can also be to lead a country where people of all diverse backgrounds have equal opportunity and right to all basic supports, and people living happily within a viable society.

Whatever it is, your purpose is within your heart and will work to bring your purpose to reality.

Prayers can Defeat the Power of Evil

The Bible says that “when the righteous prospers, the city rejoices…..” Yes, when a “good” man rules, there is peace and abundance in the land. Just the opposite happens when an evil man reigns over the land.

Good vs Evil

It occurs to me that believers cannot just afford to fold hands and do nothing while evil prevails over the land and where there are perversions in the city.

Believers must rise and pray. They must pray against the reign of evil. It is the power of prayers that can defeat evil. And the prayer of a righteous man works wonder.

So, to every believer and those who love the Lord, let us rise (and continue to rise) and take up the challenge and pray for the deliverance of the land from evil before it overtakes us all.

Only the effective prayers of the believers can defeat the power of evil that is in the land.

Rise up and knock out the evil from the land and see righteousness reign again!

Keep It Up

Our daily lives are so busy with so many things to accomplish and do. Many of the things we do are not necessarily of eternal values. They are just earthly relevant.

It is the responsibility of the believer to keep up the light shining and the fire burning.

The worries of this life: the desires to achieve and be successful are strong but the grace of God is greater and stronger.

The Bible said, “But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.

There are vital ingredients that are useful to keeping it up in your faith–stay in love, build your faith through the Word and never stop praying.

Don’t be caught in the web of this lives, and refuse to worry about anything by focusing on God who promise to be with you forever. If you do this, you will not lose your momentum and you will be able to encourage others too.

Turn Your Complaints into Prayers

Instead of complaining to God and everyone, you can use the same energy to pray and achieve great result.

Prayer is an effective tool

Complaining does not guarantee anything other than waste of energy and resources.

The Israelites are a perfect example. They complained to God and Moses throughout their Exodus journey. Many of them could not get to the promise Land.

The Bible encourages us to make all our request known to God. You can do this by telling Him rather than complaining.

The same amount of energy and resources is required to achieve complain and prayer. But one is effective and the other is not.
Turn to God and turn your request unto Him in prayers and see results as it unfolds.
Greater glory lies ahead.

The Lord’s Doing

The Psalmist says that “When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.”
The psalmist further says that “the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”
The way and manner of God’s work and ways are unbelievable. God knows all things and He knows how to get things done the right way at the right time.

The Lord’s doing is always a good doing even when it does not appear so in our human eyes.

The reason for this is because He knows what to do every given time and He is not confused by situations or circumstances.

Therefore, He is perfect in His nature and perfect in everything. No wonder Paul said the ways of God are unsearchable.

The Lord do only what He can do. Thus, He has no rival ever.

He is God and will be God forever.

The Resurrection

On Sunday, the third day, our Lord Jesus Christ resurrected! Praise God! Hallelujah! The victory is now completed. He died on the cross, He ransomed us from punishment, He rescued us from eternal damnation , He saved us from spiritual annihilation, He delivered us from sin and from the shackles of death.

The Cross, my freedom

He did it all and capped it by resurrecting to show that no other power is greater than Him, and no contention that He is truly the Son of God that came from God as a gift for Humanity–to draw us, the lost, to a loving God.

How would it be if the believers are without hope of a living God. Paul said, we would be the most pitied people on earth. It was so important that Jesus resurrected because this is our only Hope; this is our essence, our life our existence and our freedom.

I think Jesus “came, saw and conquered!”

Now, this is our freedom and our joy in that we serve a living God who we can run to and be welcomed. I am thrilled and so happy that I am saved, not just for now but forever.

Hallelujah! He lives forever.

 

A Change No One Expect

This is a change. This is a transformation no one expected. Everyone wakes up only to realize that your life has changed; your life took a new turn. Some are surprised. Some are happy while some may not. Yes, because they do not expect the change.

Be Free!

The change is a transformation of life which start from within. How can this be? It’s only a supernatural manifestation that can alter a natural occurrence.

A changed life means a complete turn-around from an old life to a new life. Sometimes, a man can decide to quit smoking or drugs and alcohol. It may even be a dangerous way of life that you are giving up. This type of efforts and decisions do not often last because it is not accompanied by a supernatural force that brings about the needed change. Some do last with help from other people.

My point is this, no matter how we try to live differently, we still need a supernatural God to bring about the ultimate change. What we cannot or accomplish all by our-self, He can and He will if we let Him in.

The transformation God brings create a new You. He takes away the “old” and gives the “new” in while still maintaining the container. He does not alter the human personality, yet He makes a brand new person. After such a change, you always know you are different.

This change is what brings the new, sweet aura into your life. Let your changed life glows and glows again and again. This is your life; your destiny. You have been waiting this long for a new beginning. Now you have it. Let it glows.

Let your life shines the new light that glows around you. Live anew.

God of Imperfection

My last post was “God of Perfection“. After delving into my current study of Exodus, I came to realize that God specializes in using imperfect people, materials or things and turning them into the best mold.

The Bible says that “we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” The “jars of clay” is our mere, frail and breakable human self which God has committed, chose to place his trust in. God deposited great amount of Grace in an undeserved container. The “container” is us. This is an awesome privilege.

Imperfect being serving a perfect God

Let’s look at some examples. We often hear–no one is perfect–and this is true.

Father Abraham tried to help fulfil The Promise when he went in to Hagar.

Moses, for instance, who led the Israelites out of the slavery land was not near perfect. He had many flaws.

 David is forever noted for his famous sin with Bathsheba, yet, he is the man after God’s own heart.

Saul who later turned Paul was a killer of God’s people. He went on to write most books in the New Testament.

So, from perception, God has never relied on man’s ability to do but on man’s willingness to trust and obey Him.

Therefore, God is willing and able to turn your imperfect state to the best if you can yield and obey.

God’s Will–Now I know His Will

God’s Will

Whatever you know now is sufficient to take you to the next level where you can get to know more. So, you only need to make use of what you know to gain additional knowledge. Knowledge not utilized goes stale (goes bad).

Make use of what you have now to gain more. You already have the spirit of the All-Knowing Being inside of you, and you know all things–if you believe.

If you have just one idea/knowledge, that’s all you need. And if it is two or three or four or five talents is what you have, use it to gain more. This is what you need and this is God’s will for you– to increase all-round.
You know what He want so go ahead and do it. Stop asking any further questions. Use what you have—and gain more.
