The promises in Jeremiah 29:11 are more than just that; promises. They reveal how much thought God has put into our future.
Therefore, as with anyone so meticulous, messing up isn’t an option.
The mess in our lives is usually the creative ingenuity of our disobedience to God and stubbornness.
Ps Ryan Foo
There is no shortcut to fulfilling God’s will. It definitely requires a level of commitment and FAITH.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
In laymans terms:
Faith= (Having the HEART for what you hope for) + (the PROOF of what your 5 senses cannot perceive)
My faith, NOT my needs, moves the hands of God.
Needs provide the environment in which faith can take place.
Ps Ryan Foo.
It took faith for Abraham to believe his descendants would be like the stars and the sand when he was so old. But God took him out of his comfort zone of thought to show him how faith can change a mans vision. And God accredited Abrahams faith as righteousness.
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.“
Faith is alive in all of us. Don’t kill it with your unbelief.
Inspired by Ps Ryan Foo.
Side note: A friend asked me this question today:
If your friend and sibling needs your help at the same time, who would you choose to hold out your hand to help first?
Think and tell me honestly.
Everyone knows the no-brainer ‘F-priority Hierarchy’. The ‘Fry-rarchy’, if you will:
That being said, it may depend on the situation. Like ‘DUH!’ situations where if your friend needs a crying shoulder and your sister wants to watch Britain’s Got Talent with you, pandai-pandai la ok. But generally as a rule of thumb it’s family first.
Alot of girls go through this “Friends vs Family” dilemma during their adolescent years. Because at some point in your immaturity, you think your friends can fill this “emotional gap” your tortured ‘forever alone’ soul has and your family only exists to ruin your life or even worse; inconvenience you. Let me tell you something. Friends will come and go but blood is thicker than water. Your family will stand by your side at your lowest points in life, not your friends. Don’t be disillusioned into thinking your friends love you more than your family does just because she listens to your high school drama crap.
Friends are good, important and can be a loving support to you. But they should never come before your family.
For a completely unrelated to any living person example, lessay your sister has her graduation coming up and you think going to the beach with your friends on the same day is the smart choice, trust me, it’s a decision you’ll regret. Babi she’ll go to Genting Highlands on your wedding day I tell you. The beach will still be there on any other given day, but your sister is only graduating once. Again, this is not a shot at any one in particular, I’m just answering my friends question.
It’s a no-brainer. Don’t end up regretting something you can’t undo. You can’t un-cry your sister’s tears.
Thinking of: The Sims, How some people are so blind, Newcomer’s luncheon, screwed up priorities, and how much I really hate it that I get so jealous when someone plays with something that isn’t mine. AND HAPPY 100th POST TO ME!
