God Really Speaks

This is a simple testimony to attest of God’s love for each one of us. And that He really speaks.

During one of my sessions with God, the Holy Spirit led me to pray for a particular person. Her name and face flashed across my mind, and so I just prayed over her.

The prayer

God really speaksI was led to pray for her not to doubt God’s love and faithfulness in her life, and not to give up in her faith in Him.

It was as if God was reassuring her of His love and promises for her through the prayers.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

I believe then, she was going through a tough patch.

God speaks

The next morning, I texted her a message to share with her what God had done and spoken through Jeremiah 29:11 to her. And I left it as that.

It was not after a few days later when I received a text message from her. In her reply, this was what exactly she said…

“Thanks for your prayer…. Remembered I was having lot of bitterness on that night when I about to sleep, doubting God’s promises and confusing am I holding on something that doesn’t exist…. Was shocked in the morning when saw your msg…. Think God really speaks to encourage me through you… Ha ha… Praise the Lord.”

I was pleasantly amazed by God’s love and thankful that I had obeyed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to pray for this person in order to lift her spirits up to continue her walk with God.

Recognising His voice

What if I didn’t hear the voice of God? Or even ignored the prompting of the Holy Spirit?

When He speaks, I want to be able to recognise His voice and obey His lead.

This experience further reinforced the need for me to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. It is when I can hear His instructions for me, then can I only be used by Him.

Where Every School is a “Military” School

I chanced upon the following entry which I thought was most disturbing because in my opinion, what was presented seemed to bare an element of truth. If this is really true, then I understand better why I am the way I am today. Do read it and decide for yourself what is the truth.

Dr. Ng Eng Hen, Minister for Education and Second Minister for DefenceNothing is accidental in Singapore. I have come to learn that these past nine years.

It is no accident, therefore, that Singapore’s education ministers come from military backgrounds. They are all former staff of the armed forces. Clearly, they have been chosen for a reason. Clearly, they are expected to bring their military experience to bear on the task of guiding the nation’s education.

A military man is not to be put in charge of education, unless one wants that education to have a military flavour. That military men are always chosen, to be education minister, rather confirms the impression of my South American friend, that Singapore’s schools are rather like military schools from overseas.

Indeed, it is most telling that the new education minister, whose name eludes me right now (he has just been appointed), is also, as I understand it, 2nd Minister for Defence. The connection between education and the military could not be more explicit, therefore.

My Read of the Month:

Finding God's Will in a crazy mixed up worldTitle: Finding the Will of God in a Crazy Mixed-up World
Author:
Tim LaHaye
Published: 1989
Genre: Christianity- Spiritual Growth
Ratings: 2.0 out of 5 stars

This book attempts to equip readers with a mental framework when approaching or seeking the will of God in their lives.

The author presents his views of God’s will in three levels: His “perfect” or complete will, “good” will and “acceptable” will describe God’s will for the people who fall into sin but then repent and still desire to do God’s basic will.

Though the three levels seems sound and logical, but yet I have my reservations on determining what is God’s perfect will and what is acceptable in a person’s life. Who are we to know or to judge? I also found some of the life examples given in the text not biblically sound or right. Therefore, this book ain’t the best to read for insights.

Do used wisdom and caution while adopting this concept especially in providing counseling to others in choosing what is perfect, good or acceptable which should be stemmed from God’s word and His ways and also in accordance to a person’s level of maturity in the faith.

Who should read it: Those who’re seeking for guidance and clarity in living out his/her life in God’s will.

Appreciating God More

Love GodSince early March I found myself confronted with an unexpected juncture that would indefinitely change the course for my life.

Despite being in the midst of such a tumultuous period in which I would liken to a phase of gestation, I find myself strangely at peace in my mind and heart. And this is only because God has been with me; walking this through with me.

Indeed, this period has been helpful in gaining clarity of His will in my life and purity in my heart.

Through this period, I have also learnt to appreciate God even more in my life. Cos I realised that whenever I need God, He is ALWAYS there and EVER-READY to listen to me.

Wonderful isn’t it, that the King of the universe would spare me His precious time to talk to a “lowly” me?

But yet I can be such an ingrate in most days where I snubbed God with my busyness and placed Him in the waiting list.

What a joke rite?
