Each of us has a story that God is writing for our lives. But are you content with the story that God is writing for your life? In 1 Corinthians 7:17, you are reminded that each person should lead the life that the Lord has assigned and called them to lead.

Some people are always seeking to obtain more. They can never be content because their desires are not godly. In 1 Timothy 6:9-11, there is a warning, “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”

The thought of looking at other people’s lives and wishing it were your own is not being content. When you are content, you are satisfied with your own achievements and purpose in life. There is great gain in godliness with contentment (1 Timothy 6:6).

What if an angel appears to you, and says, “Hail, thou art highly favored and the Lord is with you.” Wouldn’t this be the most happiest moment of your life? Yes, it should be, because God is getting ready to do something powerfully significant in your life.

This is exactly what happened to Mary, Jesus’ mother (Luke 1:26-38).  She was highly favored among all the other women, not only in her city of Nazareth, but the entire world. This is so, that God chose her to be the mother of Jesus. He made this decision, because He knows Mary would be committed to the task he had given her. He also knew that Joseph was the perfect man to be called the father of Jesus. Together, they would nourish the Christ child through all the obstacles they would go through, so that God’s purpose could be fulfilled on earth.

Don’t get this all twisted. God loves everyone, but He knows who He can trust and depend on. He knows who will stay faithful, even when things seem like they are impossible. Notwithstanding, the faithful and favored person still holds true to God’s promises. This person will not runaway from the task when things get rough, but allows God to work through the situation for His glory to be manifested.

Being favored in God’s sight means He can trust you. He can tell you a secret, and you don’t run around telling the whole world, including the devil. He also knows that you seek Him and His Kingdom first, over your own agenda (Matthew 6:33).

God knows that you are obedient, and will follow instructions, even when others think you are not doing the right thing. He knows that you are humble. Therefore, when He blesses and favors you, you will be a blessing in giving Him glory, and not boasting to bring glory to yourself.  He also knows that you are a sinner, saved by grace, but you try to walk in a holy manner.  Furthermore, He knows that you have built a rock solid relationship with Him. In addition, you stay connected to Him through prayer, fasting, reading His words and worshipping Him in spirit and truth.

With that said, finding favor in God’s sight is not rocket science. It’s about keeping a covenant with Him. He needs people He can trust and depend on.

By and large, this new year, think on what you can do for God’s Kingdom, by putting His agenda first. In so doing, all things that you seek, He will give to you.  Not only so, but He will bless and highly favor you.

The world is certainly not where you should build your hopes, because it is unstable. The pandemic, racial tension, political unrest, wars, natural disasters, and the economic downturn are just a few signs that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19). You should live with eternity in mind, as the world is not your lasting city, but you seek the city that is to come (Hebrews 13:14).

Although you are looking forward to your heavenly home, God has given you a purpose in this world. Life on earth is short (Psalm 103:15-16), so you should endeavor to run the race that is set before you with perseverance (Ecclesiastes 9:11). Remember, the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:17).

What’s in a Name?

A name is a personal identification and can have different meanings for some people. There is a special name that has a very powerful meaning. The scripture declares that she will bear a son, and you shall call his name JESUS, for he will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21, ESV). Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:9-11, ESV).

Jesus is the Savior who brought salvation to this earth. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11, ESV). Salvation is a free gift that God gave us through his son, Jesus, so that we can be saved from the consequences of our sins. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12, ESV).

Jesus is the reason for the season. Therefore, as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas, in honor of Jesus, remember the reason that he came to this earth.

Are you facing a chronic or terminal illness, a financial hardship, a marriage break-down, the death of a loved one, an addiction, or other personal or family turmoil? As you go through the storm right now, God promises you that He will be with you always to the end (Matthew 28:20). He will give you peace in the midst of the storm (Mark 4:39). Hold on to Jesus, and you can ride out your storm.

Ask God to grant you the courage, faith and strength to make it through the storm. You may not understand everything right now, as the Lord’s thoughts are not like your thoughts, and His ways are not like your ways (Isaiah 55:8). However, you are reminded that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24). Therefore, God desires sincerity in your relationship with him. He knows your heart, as there is nothing hidden from him (Luke 12:2).

God is holy and desires you also to be holy (1 Pet. 1:16). When you go before God, draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with your heart sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and your body washed with pure water (Hebrews 10:22).

God is looking for true worshipers, prayer warriors, and people who are hungry for the Words of God (Matthew 5:6) to build a sincere relationship with him.

The scriptures warn of the last days and the types of people that you should avoid.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people (2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV).

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28 ESV).

Being humble does not undermine courage and strength.

Who Is Your Rock?

From the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I (Psalm 61:2).

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still (Exodus 14:14).
