Food for my soul

Ppl always teach & tell others “God help those who help themselves.” Well, for believers…. this is not in the bible. Don’t help God, help ppl around you. You are blessed to be a blessing! God give us talents, wisdom, wealth, health so that we can help others, it is not for us to look down or laugh at others. Be gracious when we received God’s grace.

All the requirements God has for mankind is all fulfilled and answered by Christ on the cross.

Our God is a generous God. His 1st command to mankind is (Gen 2:16) ‘U shall eat freely’. God always over supply our needs. (1 kg 8:29-30 & 1 Kg 9:2-3 ) Solomon asked God for open ears & eyes towards the temple when ppl come praying. God answered with giving His ears, eyes, heart & name! When 500 ppl are hungry Jesus supplied food with 12 baskets left over (for them to tao bao aka take home). (Mk 10:13-16) Parents bring their kids to just get a touch from Jesus….. Jesus embraced them!

Before we sin, seeds of doubt usually presence. We doubt our mighty God’s capabilities to bless us more.

Why do we feel angry, jealous etc when all we need to do is ask God! When man cannot, God can. Or do we limit God? Why do we trust man more then God? Trusting God in supplying all our lack will reduce our temptation on lying, stealing, adultery……..When we trust God, we will have a bigger heart.

Grace is unearned, unmerited, undeserved favor. Only place in the gospel tat say Jesus is angry (greek:orge) is in Mk 3:1-7 when ppl heart are not gracious. This too grieve (greek:lupeo) Holy Spirit (Eph 4:29-30).

What are we saying to our friends? Words which edifying them or hitting them down? When U say things your friends deserved that is not unearned, unmerited, undeserved favor. Freely give as we r freely given!

Abba, thank you for loving me.
