Verse of the Day

You did not abandon them in the wilderness because of Your great compassion. During the day the pillar of cloud never turned away from them, guiding them on their journey. And during the night the pillar of fire illuminated the way they should go. [HCSB] Nehemiah 9:19

You see, and there you were thinking you’ve been abandoned and left for dead all along. #God, creator of the heavens and the earth gave you life (vs 6) that was why you were able to wake up in the morning. He found you worthy and not worthless because of the finished work of #Christ, and for that reason kept His covenant and promise of never leaving you or forsaking you, but I guess you were too dejected to notice that. He saw your suffering and heard your cry that was why He came and gave you the miraculous sign of the gift of health, and sound mind. By day as you walked albeit mechanically doing your daily chores, it was He who gave you the day’s light to guide you throughout your journeys, and by night, when it became dark, He helped you find your way to safety, amidst the chaos and the dangers that lurked in the night. Your tummy rumbled and immediately signalled you were hungry, but He made sure that you never went a day without food, and water to quench your thirsty life. He was to you that unwanted help that gave you the 101 on how to survive and live the good life through Him, through His WORD. But I guess, because it wasn’t like physically winning the Euro-millions lottery and driving the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, things you felt that would show for definite that He was with you, you couldn’t quite see that indeed through it all, only He was right by your side. Today He has given you another chance to see your life through His eyes. He has given you the gift of life, health and of sound mine, again for a purpose. See to it that this time around you don’t squander it; that you see Him for Who He is! Your God who is always there for you, Who will never abandon you regardless of the fiercest of storms! #NehemiahChallenge #Verseoftheday

“And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people”. [NLT] Romans 2:29b

……..

You don’t have to be Jewish, or “White” in order to have Faith in Jehovah (God of Isreal). Having Faith in God is not a “White man’s religion” as many have called it. Yahweh is no respecter of persons. All nations/tribes/people/race/colour are all equally precious to Him; and He has granted and will continue to grant each and every one discoveries/revelations of Himself (as He has always been) that will be sufficient for their salvation. So don’t let people fool you into thinking that because of who you are, or where you’re from, or the colour of your skin disqualifies/negates you from putting your faith in Him. The Words of God is an infinite/limitless blessing to all that beholds it, and is life to all that finds it. Choose life, choose Elohim. Jesus will undoubtedly make you what His Words says you will be, and give you a heart that seeks only to praise Him. And with that heart He will make you the praise of all men.
