Quiet Time with Jesus – Are You Ready?

Wednesday, 20 Sep 2017

God is my Father. He is holy. God is my Friend. He is faithful. God is love. He died for me. When I think of God sitting on the throne, I think of submission. When I think of Jesus on His knees, I think of sanctification. When I think of the Holy Spirit, I think of transformation.

God teaches me Fear of the Lord. Jesus teaches me Life. The Holy Spirit teaches me that all things are possible with God.

Whenever I face challenges, I always pray and ask God to lead me to the book where I will receive His guidance. He never fails me. Another place to look is Scripture. The Holy Spirit directs me. He would bring to remembrance a verse and I will look for it in my Bible. I have difficulty in remembering books, chapters and verse numbers. Somehow, I could not master it. When I wonder why, God says "so that you will search and find it."

God gives us a free will to choose. Therefore, I choose to be WILLING to be led by the Holy Spirit because I want to do the things that God wants me to do. Even my thoughts must be put under His control. The Bible tells me to capture every thought and make it obedient to Christ. I want to practice absolute obedience.

Sometimes, we may slip. Sometimes, we may fall. It is okay. God is faithful. He is always near us, stretching out His hand to help us stand up and continue walking in His light. I pray that my children will always walk the straight and narrow path. I always pray for mercy, not just for others but for myself too. We all need God’s mercy.

Noah spent 120 years building an ark and WARNING people of the impending judgment. Today, we have technology. We can build an ark in a much shorter time. Things can happen suddenly. Are we ready? We might have to make a split-second decision. Are we equipped with knowledge and wisdom to know what to do at that critical moment? I choose to get ready. There is no other way except to PRACTISE what the Bible teaches. I choose to ask God for knowledge and wisdom to know what to do at all times. There is no other way except to PRACTISE ASKING...

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

The Day is coming. We do not know when but we know it is COMING SOON. We are Your offspring. We are Your warriors. We have put on the Armour of God. We are ready for battle. Our eyes are open. Our ears are sharpened. Our hearts and minds are ready. Our hands and feet are ready…
