How great are His miracles, and how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation. [HCSB] Daniel 4:3

#Jehovah, God of Heaven and Earth, Creator of the entire world, He alone is God! His powers are so great “very great, exceeding great; so great that it cannot be said, nor even conceived how great they are, what a display of wisdom, power, and goodness is in them; they are wonderful beyond expression and conception; and so strong and mighty as not to be resisted and made void by all the powers of nature, earth, or hell; and if this may be said of his works of providence, and his miracles of that, how much more of his works and miracles of grace!” His #Kingdom, the Kingdom of His son our Lord Jesus #Christ, His #grace and His #mercy, is an everlasting one; forever and ever, going through all generations, even till the end of time, His Kingdom is without end!

Oh how great are you El Elyon, My lord and my God!

For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human? What then is Apollos? What is Paul? [ESV] 1 Corinthians 3:4-5a

………….

We may have much knowledge, yet still be oblivious to what is true. There are so many contentions, people quarrelling and squabbling among themselves; all of which are sad evidences of the state of life in the world we live in. Serving God, the creator of the entire Heaven and Earth is not about defending your faith – or your so called “#religion” – to the world. For indeed with Him there is no such thing as a religion, but instead, it’s all about a relationship which by its very nature is peaceable (not contentious) through which others gets to see His love. In our walk as #Christ-followers (Christians) we ought to make conscious efforts of imbibing His qualities in our daily lives. Of course that will not be easy, especially if there are people always trying to get into a dispute with you or you are the one who likes going around disputing with others :); but the decision to reflect Jesus’ qualities, is a start in that good direction. We were created to follow Christ, no one else, for only He is the true #foundation on which you can build a life worth living. #Any other foundation is an imitation!

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. [NLT] Galatians 6:9

…….

Why was the noble dream conceived and for what purpose? What made you so passionate about it, and why has it always been at the forefront of your mind? Was it there to torment you, or to remind you of what you are capable of achieving? Much more than these, the #Lord created you for greatness, to impact your community, your surroundings, your family. Much more than these, He created you to reflect the nature of His Being. The God of heaven and earth is the CREATOR of the entire Universe, and by Him all things were made. Activate your creative nature on your surroundings. The plans, the purpose, the dreams, you have them for a reason. They were woven in the fibre of your being for a reason. Yes, there is much work to be done for the purpose to be realised, but remember, His strength that He has given to you has already activated all the fibres of your being to do what it only knows how to do, to make things happen! #This is not the time to give up on the dream! #Everyday spent working on it is a day closer to the realisation of it!
