The Size Of The Creator

Also Your righteousness, O God, is very high, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You? Psalm 71:19 NKJV

Yesterday in my church’s weekly bible study meeting, the Pastor showed the congregation a video (see below), this video made me realize something, something that I myself am guilty of and unfortunately most believers are guilty of doing at some point or another in their walk with God: We forget how BIG & GREAT the GOD we claim to serve and believe in really is.

The video is less than two minutes long, by the end of it I had one question in my mind: These planets & stars are so huge, imagine how big the creator is?

I then started to rebuke myself for allowing the many convincing lies of the devil, the daily doubts and the constant attacks of fears whenever I decide to use my faith, to distract me from the magnitude and size of my God. He created the Heavens & the galaxy, for me to doubt in His ability to reward my faith in action and trust in Him is irrational & emotional.

King David knew how GREAT & BIG his God was, that’s why he didn’t back down challenging Goliath; Abraham didn’t avoid obeying God when He asked him to sacrifice Isaac because He believed that God would raise him from the dead if anything; even the Lord Jesus didn’t run away from making the sacrifice that God the Father sent Him for because He knew personally how GREAT & BIG he is, and there are so many other examples in the bible.

The next time satan speaks words of doubt in your ear, throws feelings of fear in your heart to neutralize you from taking actions or even use people around you to pressure you to not believe in God, remind him of the following verse:

You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! James 2:19 NKJV

He and his demons know the truth and how GREAT & BIG God is, after all, they were once living in His magnificent presence. It is now their mission and work to cause us to not see His GREATNESS in our lives; but their shame & failure in our lives instead.

How GREAT Is The God Of The Bible!? May He Reward Your Faith In Him.

The ONLY Way To Know God Personally

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. I Corinthians 2:11 NKJV

This verse is very profound. It leaves in the mind of those who have common sense, no room for doubt or confusion. 

Who know us better than our own spirit? Only God, but no one else. So surely you can understand now why anyone who is born of God continue to feel sadden when a person is in a church for many years or claiming to believe in God, yet they have never received the Holy Spirit. 

Without the Holy Spirit, you can read the entire bible, experience miracles, improve in your character and even be used by God to save others, but, you’ll never know who God is personally. 

Now imagine how frustrating this is for God Himself.

He sent our Lord Jesus, His Son, to die for us so that the Holy Spirit could be given to all those who believe in Him, as a GIFT, as our INHERITANCE. A gift that we are automatically entitled to the moment we accept Him as our Lord & Saviour.

Yet, so many neglect or reject it, consciously & unconsciously. And the consequence? People who are in church for most of their lives or claim to believe in the God of the bible, but don’t even know, PERSONALLY , the One they claim to be their Father, Lord & Saviour. 




Do Not Accept This To Be Your Case.

The Holy Spirit inside of me is telling you, demanding from you, that you use your focus, time and strength to take possession of YOUR GIFT, YOUR INHERITANCE, the Holy Spirit.

Daily you!

I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship. Romans‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭MEV‬‬

When meditating on this verse, the Holy Spirit lead me to realize the spiritual situation of many ‘believers’ of God & ‘Christians’ of nowadays. 

Anyone who claims to be a Christian, needs to ask themselves this question EVERYDAY without fail:

“Am I presenting myself in my daily decisions & actions as HOLY & acceptable, in God’s eyes?”

God has a set standard, a level of expectation, unfortunately many twist and turn God’s standard to make themselves feel better about not making the true sacrifices needed in order to fulfill it. 

Paul spoke about these types of people earlier in the book of Romans (see Romans 10:1-4). One of the main symptoms of being like this is the fear of death. 

Now, why not take 20min to think:

Am I truly & sincerely giving my best in my relationship with God?

Do I really want this relationship? 

Do my actions & thoughts honestly reflect the answers I gave to the previous questions?

I pray that the spirit of humility embraces and strengthens us all. God Bless

Listen! Listen! Listen!

Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. Romans 10:1-3 NLT

The Holy Spirit has been speaking profoundly in my church, since last week Monday, about us LISTENING to Him; and while I was meditating on these verses, it lead me to understand how the Holy Spirit feels when we don’t listen to His directions.

The verses are quite self explanatory, we need to resist trying to please God in ‘our ways‘, and LISTEN to His directions and please Him in ‘His ways‘. 

Some do have a lot of sincere zeal for God but due to their immaturity in faith, they’re wasting time. Let’s not ignore what God is saying to us all at this very moment: LISTEN to Me!

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Matthew 23:25 MEV

Let’s avoid getting the Lord Jesus angry with us.

All Winners Have This Trait

And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 MEV

Perseverance keeps a person focused and steadfast in their purpose until the day they achieve their goal. It give Christians firmness of character, keeps them loyal to a pure faith even in the most adverse circumstances.

We go through trails or deserts to develop perseverance (James 1:2-4 & Romans 5:3-4).

In the face of failures, fear or setbacks, those who are perseverant don’t lose their goal and give up, they remain steadfast, determined to keep moving forward. Christians have God and His Word, their is no reason to ever give up and not achieve our goals.

All things in life depend on perseverance (Luke 21:19). Salvation & the realization of our goals will not happen by chance, it depends on us. It takes determination, perseverance, an indomitable & unyielding spirit (Hebrews 10:36).

I believe that failure and defeat comes from a lack of perseverance; when we believe in what we are doing and are determined, positive results must take place. It’s the law of God & life (Galatians 6:7).

Soft water constantly striking a hard stone wears it out in the end.

Why did God command Joshua to persevere by walking around Jericho? Why did Naaman have to dip himself in the river seven times? Couldn’t God perform the miracle instantly? Of course He could, so why did they have to repeat the same acts over and over again? Perseverance

What’s A CLEAN Conscience?

This command I commit to you, my son Timothy, according to the prophecies that were previously given to you, that by them you might fight a good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith. 1 Timothy 1:18-19 MEV

Our conscience is the deepest expression of our soul. It enables us to distinguish between good and evil and approve or disapprove our behaviour and attitude; creating a sense of responsibility within us. A Christian conscience is the consequence of a life in the presence of God; this is what builds character.

Our conscience is like a thermometer that measures our level of spirituality.

What makes my consequences unclean and what are the consequences? Sin is the only source to an unclean conscience. It weighs our spirit down, as it is stained & our soul wants to be clean (Psalm 32:4).

When our conscience is stained like this, it produces doubts; which causes our faith to become faulty and ineffective. It’s useless to pray, quote Scripture or demand from God at this point.

How can I clean my conscience and keep it clean?

The key to a clean conscience is to confess the sin (no watering down) as it is (Psalm 32:3-6 & I John 1:9). However, don’t just confess them and keep then doing wrong, thinking because you confessed God will forgive you. There may be people who were hurt by that sin or sins, who also need to hear the sinner confess his sin. If this isn’t done, the person will be forgiven by God but not the person who was a victim of the sin.

The way back to a clean conscience is rough & extremely difficult; that why only few reach it. The majority try to find alternative routes but these never work because the devil knows they are not sincere & anxiously want their downfall.

If I want to keep my conscience clean, I must be at peace with God and with others, especially those who share the same faith.

NEVER ALLOW SIN TO ACCUMULATE, rather IMMEDIATELY CONFESS them, because when we do, we remove all stains, dirt and impurities from our heart. Refuse to do this, and your heart will remain dirty and will only get worse.

How can someone in sin appear blessed?

God will always honor His Word & reputation, therefore He will allow miracles to happen when the person uses their faith. However, this doesn’t stop the person’s faith to grow cold from day to day, having rejected a good conscience, they will end up wrecking their faith.

Anyone who thinks their works for God justifies their sinful behaviour is deceiving themselves, and worse of all, mocking God. Sooner or later, the sin will be revealed and the shame of that person will be disastrous.

Get rid of hidden sin so you can serve the Holy Spirit with a clean conscience. By doing this, we avoid quenching the Holy Spirit. Fill the heart of the Lord with Joy & Happiness & step on satan with authority and faith.

The Fruits Of Fearing God

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 MEV

The fear of the Lord is a deep reverence and respect towards God, capable of narrowing the gap between yourself & Him (Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 14:2 & Psalms 103:11).

What does it mean to fear God?

It is to live a life of sacrifice, keeping God’s will in mind & being moved by the love He has always shown.

If I want Jesus to manifest Himself through me, I must manifest His attitudes, behaviour and His gospel. I must have the mind of Christ, He said, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work” (John 4:34).

Many so-called Christians and believers don’t fear God, their food is to do their own will, by prioritizing worldly riches, fame & the lusts of their heart. Due to this selfish ambition, they are ineffective Christians. God even will not hear their prayers (John 9:31).

It’s a daily battle between our flesh and Spirit (Galatian 5:16-17).

God chose David because of His unselfish desire to serve God (I Samuel 13:14). Through this verse I understood that God is looking for those who are willing to do His will & who are responsible. Even in the face of injustice and persecution by Saul, David showed reverence to God by refusing to kill Saul when he could; he thought to himself, ‘Who am I to kill someone that God has anointed?’, this shows fear towards God, not man.

When a person really fears God in their character and actions, God is moved by these acts of loyalty and love; so much so that He glorifies them before satan and man. Just like He did with Job.

When Job had everything he needed, he feared God in his character and actions; when God allowed satan to take it all away, he still trusted & feared God in his character and actions. And the world knows how God rewarded him because of this.

When a person has:

The Fear of God

The Holy Spirit

The Word of God

The name of Jesus.

What else do they need? Absolutely nothing.
