The Promised Land is Yours - Claim it!

Along the way, I have learned to completely surrender my life to GOD. I have learned and realized that the Holy Spirit given to me is the same Holy Spirit given to you. A simple illustration would be if I give you a bottle of energy drink and I gave your friend, too. You just took a little sip and kept it in the fridge. But your friend drank all of it. Which one of you do you think would get energized? Just like with the Holy Spirit. If you feed your spirit with worship, prayer, Word, fellowship and intimate relationship with the FATHER, the Holy Spirit given to you will be useful.

I'd like to share with you a song I've heard this morning that dawned on me...


Who here among us has not been broken
Who here among us is without guilt or pain
So oft’ abandoned by our transgressions
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

Come ye unwanted and find affection
Come all ye weary, come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy, you are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

O blessed Father, look down upon us
We are Your children, we need Your love
We run before Your throne of mercy
And seek Your face to rise above

If you are a newly transformed Christian, please know that being a baby Christian should not hinder you from desiring the will of GOD and must not pull you away from desiring GOD more in your life. Every baby Christian matures when fed with worship, prayer, GOD's Word, fellowship and intimate relationship with the FATHER. Just like how a little baby grows physically and becomes a man. The more you focus on HIM, the more beautiful your life will get. Keep believing.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD!!! You are NOT exempted from ALL HIS beautiful blessings and HE very much desires to give you the Promised Land. All you need to do is BELIEVE and reach out your hand to HIM. HE wants to have that intimate relationship with you. A very personal relationship that goes straight to your very core.

When you were little, didn't you ask from your daddy before he gave it to you?

If you know the story in the Old Testament about the Ten Spies. Two out of the ten spies firmly believed that GOD's Promised Land is flowing with milk and honey but eight of them refused to believe because of the giants they saw in that place. After many years, Caleb and Joshua (the 2 spies) were able to see the Promised Land. You know what's amazing though? They were very submissive to the other spies. They submitted BUT their hearts never stopped believing in GOD. The Almighty GOD who created the Universe and everything you can see in it.

Whoever you are, claim your Promised Land.
It is yours.
A gift from our FATHER.




When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!
