HE HEARS:

1 John 5:14

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us.

I always call out my mum even when i have nothing to tell her, immediately i step into the house, she is the first person i call out, i shout out and keep calling her until she responds. She complains about it at times but she doesn’t seem to understand that it gives me joy when she responds and i get to now she is home…i can’t seem to get the right words to explain to her either.

You see, i love my mum and i love finding her at home, the house always seems and feels empty without her presence.

A good friend of mine once lent me a book that spoke of how this Pastor’s wife who was a stay at home wife had kids and each one would come in the house, at different intervals through the door and yell out ‘MUM’ and she would respond, ‘yes Darling, i am upstairs ironing, do you need anything?’ the particular child would respond saying ‘no’ and leave the house shutting the door behind them. This happened with all her 5 kids, each calling to her and she responding the same way. I could relate to this…

Our Father in heaven always hears and responds to us when we call Him, ever so lovingly and He never gets tired of responding however many times or however much we call Him. He loves us unconditionally.

Mark 1:40-41 tells us He is always willing to do what we ask of Him. Question is do we go to Him with a willing heart? Do we call out to Him only when in trouble or at all times? I know for sure and always continuously pray that i may always remember that i need Him more on my best days than on my worst days.

He is always willing to make us better, but are we willing to let Him change us…change our lives…are we, willing to surrender fully to Him so He can take over and mould us into who He created us to be?

The story of after Jesus’ resurrection in Luke 24:13-19 helps us understand more of what He wants from us. He asked them ‘What things?’ (GNB) not because He didn’t know what had happened, but because He delights in us telling Him what is happening or what is going on despite Him knowing it all.

FAITH IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT:

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Someone once approached me and asked me how do I always manage to have it all together…truth be told, it is God’s grace in my life, if left alone to myself, I’d be such a disaster. His grace is truly sufficient. There’s a lot more to God’s grace that meets the eye, let us share just some bit of the tip of the ice berg. Let us begin with what you say and what you believe,  what you hear and what you choose to believe. 

What people say ‘fake it until you make it’ is a lie of the devil. God created you an original,  why should you fake it or be a copy,  clone or shadow of what and who God created you to be? We were created in his own image and likeness  (Genesis 1:27) 

If there is anyone we should copy, then it is God and not anyone else because our standard should always be Christ. (Ephesians 4:13). We are to strive to be more like Him everyday…we can never go wrong in this regard. When we were created, each one was uniquely made, He had you alone in mind when He created you, reason why no one else has your fingerprint and so no one else can fulfill the purpose you alone were created to fulfill. Do not cheapen yourself by trying to be someone else, a copy, a mere shadow of someone else.

So how about you ‘faith it until you make it’ – this is what gives me confidence,  knowing who I am and whose I am and striving to be more like Him everyday and despite falling, He picks me up all the time and sets my feet on solid ground ( Psalms 23:3), and so I faith it everyday and manage to keep it together because the path of the righteous is like the sunrise,  getting brighter and brighter until the perfect day ( Proverbs 4:18)

I am a work in progress, we all are and I’m getting there everyday.

So how about you ‘faith it until you make it’, it surely sounds true and better and it works for sure…
