Our own testimony glorifies God. I wish everybody who had experienced joy in the Lord will shout out to the world what God has done to them.
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
Sabi nga, He listens to prayer of righteous people. Do I consider myself righteous, because He has heard my urgent prayer? I’m a sinner just like anybody else. We are human and prone to sin because we were born with it. However, once we accepted Jesus, we were new, but it doesn’t mean you can change instantly. Words of God can changed you, but things you cannot change, you have to desire and ask for it from God.
We sometimes receives His blessings without realizing it. However, once you are with Him, you discern right away if it came from Him or not. Satan might only be using it for his purpose. When we immerse our self with His Words , keep communicating with Him through prayers and always sing praise songs, who can be against you? Most of the time we are occupied with worldly matters which separate us from Him. Isn’t it that if we are with God, we find the peace and joy.I don’t know how can I explain peace and joy being with Him. There has been lots of good things He has done to me. Of course, we still go through the dark, but since you take refuge in Him, you will come out unscathed.
Last week, I had this joyful experienced with the Lord God. He had heard my urgent request: money. I know that, that is not permanent. We have a God who is bigger than any problem. He knows I’m solely dependent on Him, but sometimes we missed the mark and do our own way.
Last week, I, together with my son and my BFF had a plan of meeting at one of my BFF’s anniversary and their kids birthday part at Sofitel. It was planned ahead, however I was kind of hesitant because money was my problem. I asked God if He allows me to join. There was sign given, so I and my son went ahead even my money was only good for that travel expenses.
The road to MOA was heavily congested on whichever route we would take. We were sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned bus though. After we got off the bus, there was a long line of passengers going to MOA. We were already late by more than 3 hours. We can take a taxi though, but we will be short of expenses in going back to my workplace and my son to our home. However, there were no taxi either. Suddenly, a private car parked just right in front of us and a barker was calling MOA. We went inside right away to get the first seats. Hinatid pa kami ng driver sa likod ng Sofitel. That was too comfortable, I could say, kahit sobrang stress ako sa traffic. God comfort me with His rod and stuff (Psalm 23).
God had not yet finished giving me the joy. I received material gift which I so loved and financial blessings from my friends which was just right for the money I need to complete my next days of expenses. I was so grateful, that I could shout to the world what God had done to me. That early morning I kept on praying to God, to please make miracle to me(it was regarding my finances)paulit ulit yun. And, God did not fail me.
That was not actually the first miracle He did to me. So many times in the past, He showed His love because I tried to seek for Him, to obey Him and He knows I love Him.
Do you have anything to share that shows God miracle in your life. Please share it. God would love you to glorify Him with the good things He did in your life.
God said in Hebrew 13:5-6“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
