Don’t waste your time

Don’t waste your time

A stumbling block along ones pathway is only of importance if one fails to see and avoid it. What are stumbling blocks? These is anything that delays or poses a threat, to one arriving at ones destination. This means that the Stumbling Block, in its self, is not the danger but the danger is in failings to identify and avoid it. For instance, if while I’m working along the road I fail to see a stone in my part, a depression or bulging on the road and I stumble upon it. I don’t go all “How dare you stand in my part stone!!!” rather am like “dammit, I should have been paying more attention to where I step”. At least that’s what I, and I believe every other person with common sense would do. For the stone wasn’t necessarily there to make me stumble rather it was just an obstacle along that path. Which would have been there irrespective of whether I decided to thread that path or not.

For the probability of walking along the road without facing any obstacles is pretty low if not nonexistent I must say. Cause, if it’s not a stone along ones part then it might be a cyclist and if not a cyclist then a car and if not a car then maybe a fellow pedestrian whose not looking at where his going, and so on and so forth. I mean, the possibilities are infinite.

Nonetheless transferring this Analogy into one Life. As long as one sets a goal or a destination for him or herself. The will surely be obstacles along the part to that goal. Just as written in        1.Corinthians 16:9

9 For a great door and effectual is

opened unto me, and there are many

adversaries.

Some obstacles might be set there intentionally but most of the obstacles (in my opinion the most dangerous obstacles), are set there unintentionally and often come from those closest to us i.e. from our friends, loved ones and even Family.

Knowing this, I often try to reprimand myself, that wasting my time arguing or being annoyed with someone over one thing or the other, while there are much more important challenges at hand. Is not just a waste of time but is also utterly detrimental and hurtful to myself. For if I do so, I would just be like the guy devoid of common sense, who stops to shout and curse at the stone on the road, for daring to stand in his path.

However I myself know how difficult it can be to ignore the obstacles/opposition and focus on the goal the destination, especially when pride is involved. On the other hand I also know how easy it can be to live a life of Joy and humility in Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, where not every little issue puts one in “berserker mode” and things just seem to rub off. For in Zechariah 4:6

6 Then he answered and spake unto

me, saying, This is the word of the

LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not

by might, nor by power, but by my

spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

 

For when one forsakes everything including ones loved ones, family, pride etc. and one gives his or her life to our Lord Jesus Christ, just like I have done. That is when you truly gain everything. Matthew 6:33

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of

God, and his righteousness; and all

these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for

the morrow: for the morrow shall

take thought for the things of itself.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil

thereof.

That is when one enters the realm of Joy Unlimited. You find out that you are incapable of being annoyed or holding a grudge against any person, for added to the Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ you come into the knowledge that. Ephesians 6:12-18

12 For we wrestle not against flesh

and blood, but against principalities,

against powers, against the rulers of

the darkness of this world, against

spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the

whole armour of God, that ye may be

able to withstand in the evil day, and

having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your

loins girt about with truth, and having

on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the

preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of

faith, wherewith ye shall be able to

quench all the fiery darts of the

wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation,

and the sword of the Spirit, which is

the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer

and supplication in the Spirit, and

watching thereunto with all perseverance

and supplication for all saints;

For if we walk with our Lord Jesus Christ Hand in hand. There are no number of obstacles that can prevent us from reaching our destination. For if God be for us, then we are in majority.

Stay blessed

BEWARE OF MAJORITY!

Today: 2016-01-16

 

Never be enticed or carried away by public views or majority stand.

To join the crowd is to get lost in and with the crowd. Always stand on what is right and not on what is popular. God boycotted the popular majority to bless the minority. Elisha with double portion of the anointing. God is never moved by the majority, but by a heart that greatly pants after him. 2 Chronicles.16.9, Isaiah.66.1-3

But why do people easily drift to the majority and popular side?

Fear of been different

Fear of been alone

Fear of been maligned

Disloyalty.

Insincerity.

Beware. If you bend you will blend and if you blend you will loose your identity. And if you loose your identity you will loose your uniqueness.

Antworten auf die Herausforderungen

Heute: 2016.01.04

 

16 Denn ein Gerechter fällt siebenmal und steht wieder auf ; aber dieGottlosen versinken im Unglück.
Sprüche 24:16.

 

In der Reise des Lebens Herausforderungen werden sicherlich kommen, Welche weder Ihre Meinung oder Einladung benötigen. Sie werden ohne Vorwarnung kommen. Daher muss man dies im Leben berücksichtigen. Sie kommen als Wellen und sind nicht notwendigerweise da um Sie zu verletzen, beschädigen oder zu zerstören. Während einige mit den Herausforderungen runtergehen gleiten andere über sie, als ob nichts passiert oder überhaupt Ihr Weg käme. Es ist alles eine Frage der Haltung, die Geisteshaltung, die Mentalität und Erwartungen. Sie können über die Wellen gleiten, während andere von ihr mitgerissen werden. Selbst wenn Sie schon einmal von den Fluten des Lebens mitgerissen werden, können Sie die Gewässer überkommen mit dem Wort Gottes, dass Sie auch nach sieben Mal der Fall wieder steigen, wenn Sie jemals bis zu sieben Mal fielen.

RESPONDING TO CHALLENGES

Today: 2016-01-04

 

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
Proverbs 24:16

In the journey of life challenges will certainly come.
They don’t require your opinion or invitation.
They will come without prior notice. Therefore, live ready for them.
They come as waves on their own not necessarily to hurt, damage or destroy.
While some are swept off and fizzle out with challenges some others glide over them as if nothing ever happened or ever came their way.
It’s all a matter of attitude, the mind set, mentality and expectations.
You can glide over the waves while some others are swept away by it.
Even if you are ever swept off your feet by the floods of life, you can come over the waters again by the scriptural provision that you will rise again, even after seven times of fall if you ever fell up to seven times.

STELLE DICH DEINEN ÄNGSTEN

Heute: 2016.01.03

3 und zu ihnen sprechen : Israel, höre zu ! Ihr geht heute in den Streit
wider eure Feinde ; euer Herz verzage nicht, fürchtet euch nicht und erschreckt nicht und laßt euch nicht grauen vor ihnen ;
Deuteronomy 20: 3

Schauen Sie oder laufen Sie nie weg von, das was Sie beängstigt. Dies ist der einzige Weg, um das was Ihn beängstigt zu stoppen. Ihre Angst entgegen zu schauen, schwächt die Angst. Je mehr Sie Ihre Angst konfrontieren desto mutige bekommen Sie. falls Sie von Ihrer Furcht weglaufen, wird es Sie verfolgen und sogar Ihnen Eines Tages überwältigen. Aber sobald Sie Ihre Angst konfrontieren, gewinnen Sie Macht über es. Wenn Sie nicht möchten, dass Ihre Angst, Sie nicht überwältigt, müssen Sie sich Ihre Angst stellen und es überwältigen.

DIE ultimative Befriedigung

Heute: 2016.01.02

Viele Leute denken, dass das was sie brauchen, Geld ist. Einige andere denken, dass das was sie brauchen, Arbeit, Ruhm oder Position ist. Aber die ultimative Befriedigung ist es, in der Gestalt Gottes zu sein.
Er legte seinem Bild und Gleichnis in uns. So sind wir gezwungen, die Sehnsucht nach ihm zu halten. Genesis. 1:26,27
15 Ich aber will schauen dein Antlitz in Gerechtigkeit ; ich will satt werden, wenn ich erwache, an deinem Bilde. Psalm.17.15
Das Gesicht Gottes ist das Heilmittel zur Schande des Menschen. Keine Schande bleibt mit einem Mann, der ständig das Gesicht Gottes erblickt. Psalm.34.5
das Antlitz Gottes bringt Veränderungen für den Menschen. 2. Korinther 3,18
Das Gesicht Gottes ist die Gunst Gottes-Psalm.30.7, Numbers.6.23-27.
Das Gesicht von Gott ist unsere ultimative Befriedigung. Halten Sie ihren blick an Ihnen, um letztlich aussehen wie Er.

Many people think that what they need is money.  Some others think that what they need is job, fame or position.  But the ultimate satisfaction is to be in the likeness of God.

The face of God brings change to man. 2 Corinthians 3.18
The face of God is the favour of God-Psalm.30.7, Numbers.6.23-27.
The face of God is our ultimate satisfaction.  Keep looking at Him to ultimately look like Him.
