we long for an answer to our every prayer
is God’s voice the loudest in our lives?
“for he is our God. We are the people he watches over, the flocck under his care. If only you would listen to his voice today!.” - Psalms 95:7 (NLT)
Pengingat untuk kita agar Mengerjakan suatu ibadah yang sedikit namun terus-menerus adalah lebih baik daripada melakukan ibadah yang banyak sekaligus di suatu waktu tertentu saja kemudian mengabaikannya di waktu yang lain. Karena, apabila seseorang melakukan suatu ibadah yang meskipun hanya sedikit namun dilakukan terus-menerus, maka dia berarti akan terus berada dalam kondisi beribadah dan terus menjalin ikatan dengan Rabbnya tanpa terputus. «أَحَبُّ الأَعْمَالِ إِلَى اللهِ أَدْوَمُهَا وَإِنْ قَلَّ» “Amalan yang paling dicintai Allah adalah amalan yang rutin dilakukan meskipun sedikit”. (Hadits Shahih, Riwayat Bukhori dan Muslim, Lihat Shahiihul jaami’ no. 163). Semoga Allah menjadikan kita orang-orang yang terus-menerus menjalankan ibadah kepadaNya dan menjadikan hari-hari kita penuh dengan kebaikan. Sehingga, kita telah siap kapan pun ajal mendatangi kita.
Today's Daily Meditation: A Chosen Generation
It's no news now that we a God's chosen generation of royalty, holiness, priests. It's also pretty common gist that we Christians are joint heirs with Christ in heaven. This means that everything the father has is ours to operate in and enjoy. God is not subject to any of his creations, they are only instruments to be used for is will. This is the same way that every good thing you have received through Christ Jesus is not supposed to be your delight but tools to a higher calling.
Here is what I'm saying, we are chosen not to fulfil our human lusts and desires, but to show forth God's glory and do his bidding. We've inherited the kingdom of God, chasing after its pleasures is highly irresponsible of us and beneath God's expectations for us. It's just like the those put in government using the resources at their disposal for personal ambitions and lusts. If we would delight in anything it should be our sonship through Christ Jesus. The way all of our earthly possessions, intellectual property, and all else should be used is to glorify our father through establishing his will on Earth.

When I'm struggling with decisions and the way forward I always go to God and ask for wisdom. But that doesn't necessarily make the decision easier so I ask God to help me choose which basically means, "Hey God, please send a strike of lightning or lemme just magically wake up in the alternate universe where I made a certain decision"
But God doesn't work like that. He gives wisdom, he gives free will and most importantly he give guidelines in his word and it is up to me to read his word, and make the decisions myself. For a man may make plans but the Lord directs his path which means you need to make plans first, then God will direct you. So I'm learning to just go for it, to use discernment and most importantly to practice my faith as opposed to just saying I have it.
"When a man argues for victory and not for truth, he is sure of just one ally that is the devil. Not the defeat of the intellect, but the acceptance of the heart is the only true object in fighting with the sword of the spirit."—George Macdonald
Brother, let's spend this day aruging for truth. In all things, let us pursue truth.
Period. Pray for discernment and clear sight of the path this man is taking BEFORE feelings get involved. Feelings will blind you to what is really true! But here is what is true: God is not going to send you a luke warm man to drag you away from His will and your purpose. Don’t be deceived. LISTEN TO ME. If you’ve got that gut feeling that this applies to your current situation, then IT DOES. Do not ignore this! The man who is sent by and approved of by God will not contradict the word of the one who sent Him, nor will he ask you to do so. STOP 👏🏾 MAKING 👏🏾 EXCUSES 👏🏾 for luke warm men. You’re on fire for Christ. Not just a church goer. Not just a pew filler. Not just a talker, but a genuine and sincere doer of His word, determined to put a smile on His face. The man who God sends will be, too.
