Do you feel busier or more involved than other people in your church community? Watch out! Be careful not to use yourself as a barometer to measure others.
I’ve been taking some time off social media to re-organize my life and schedule, and adapt better habits. I disciplined myself to read more (need to get through my book pile), write more and spend longer time with the Lord. These are just a few of the lessons I’ve reflected on which I thought I’d share with you. I look forward to hearing from you in the comments below!
Is the desire to be famous wrong for Christians to have?
What does it say about our hearts?
“I want to be famous so that I can use MY INFLUENCE for the Lord.”
This sounds good and noble on the onset but focus on the statement “so I can use MY INFLUENCE for the Lord.”
It is not wrong to use one’s influence for kingdom purposes but desires like these need to be filtered at the heart level. Are we really bent on making the Lord known or are we merely using Him as a vehicle for us to be known? Are we forgetting the fact that God is God and if He wants to MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN, He can do so? He can use people like you and me, but that is His discretion. We cannot command Him and say “God, MAKE ME FAMOUS, so I can make you known.”
Who are we to dictate upon God, OUR STRATEGY? Is He not God who can do all things and knows all things?
How do you pray for a car? Is there an exact formula for it? In this video I share with you how I prayed for both my cars and the lessons I learned along the way.
After two years of driving Carly, her parts started to break down one by one and I had to make that decision to part ways with her. I did the final batch of repairs & put her up on sale but it wasn’t that easy. Even that was a process that built my faith & character. This is the story of how I said goodbye to Carly and welcomed Monsour, my brand new car.
I started praying for a car during one bus ride home in 2006. I was on the evening shift at Mellow947 then, meaning I go home after 12mn, commuting all the way to Rizal. Not knowing when the prayer would be answered, I still kept praying until one evening, I didn’t realize that I was already sitting on the car that would be mine!
Have you tried praying for small things? Have you tried asking God to guide you when you pray even for material things that you need?
In this video I share with you some of my experiences & things that I’ve learned.
