He is Everything

No comments :

If you never felt pain, then how would you know that I am a Healer?
If you never had to pray, How would you know that I am a Deliverer?
If you never had a trial, how could you call yourself an overcomer?
If you never felt sadness, How would you know that I am a Comforter?

If you never made a mistake, How would you know that I am a forgiver?
If you knew all, How would you know that I will answer your questions?
If you never were in trouble, How would you know that I will come to your rescue?
If you never were broken, Then how would you know that I can make you whole?

If you never had a problem, How would you know that I can solve them?
If you never had any suffering, Then how would you know what I went through?
If you never went through the fire, Then how would you become pure?
If I gave you all things, How would you appreciate them?

If I never corrected you, How would you know that I love you?
If you had all power, Then how would you learn to depend on me?
If your life was perfect, Then what would you need me for?
I am everything and everything is in Me.

Ephesians 4:6 - one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Romans 8:28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Yesterday's preaching by Ps. Christie was very powerful. It was a heartfelt moment as the message striked me and I believe that many were affected. I saw some people who were crying and I can feel their pain. A friend confessed to me that he was also crying as he was touched by it. In some instances, I was hit and I told to myself, "Oh, that was me. I was doing that bad thing!". The main topic yesterday was forgiveness, truly, you cannot receive full blessings if you can't give it to those who have hurt you.

We were forgiven by the Lord and covered by the holy blood of Jesus, to unlock the blessings, why don't we give the same sincere forgiveness to others. This has been mentioned in Colossians 3:13 - 'Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you'. This will result to narrow down the anger, to ease the pain and to move forward.

Yes, forgiveness is against our nature so we forgive by faith. Whether we like it or not, we should forgive and put the complete trust to Him that he will do the works and set your heart free from anger, bitterness & wrath. It is our job to forgive as it pleases Him, we should please God. Also, I believe that forgiveness is a slow process, you just need to let Him do his part by healing your heart and make necessary actions. We should forgive even if it takes a hundred times to do so as mentioned in Matthew 18:21-22 'Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.'
