People's interest

Wooo… My friend! The world is changing, I don’t know if you will agree with me or not. Everybody is very busy now days for his or her interest. It is technically very hard to spend some few minute with your next door neighbor….. This is a little crazy, where are we heading my friend? This reminds me about what is written in Philippians 2: 21 which says “Everyone looks out for his own interest, not those of Jesus”(NIV).  I very guilty about this, I feel like I don’t have any spare time to look on the interest of others. I feel like I want to make myself a priority or worry about my needs and not worrying about the needs of my next door neighbor.  I always ask myself this question: “what would Jesus do?”  I am sure that Jesus interest was to serve others. My next question is: “how many times have I served others?” How many times have I checked on my next door neighbor if they are okay or need anything? Probably it has been several months since I stop by their house when I needed something. It is crazy and very guilty situation.  Do you hear me? Are you in the same page my friend? The word of God says in Philippians 2:3-5 that “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.  In your relationships with one another, have the same attitude of mind Christ Jesus had:” (NIV) I don’t want to add anything to the above verse, you can clearly understand what it means. There more I read the more I want to confess…..Please think about it and ask God to help us have the same attitude of mind of Christ Jesus had.  Life would be so easy if we had Jesus mind in the world we live in today.
Would you pray  with me today? “ Father, I am so guilty of my selfishness. You spoke the truth through your words today. I  have done wrong in your sight a million times. I waste most of my time trying to “ get” what I feel like it would make me happy and forget about the needs of my next door neighbor. God! Help me to have humility for others and to look not only to the my interest but to the interest of others as you have spoken into my heart today. Jesus, I would like my attitude to be same as your attitude. Help me to change my attitude towards other, I want to love others just as you first love me and died for me at the cross. Lord! I confess my sins today, I am so sorry for hurting you and others. Would you forgive me Lord? Thank you for forgiveness me and thank you for changing my attitudes” Amen.

Have a blessed day my friend, go out today and try to look on the interest of others as you try to meet your interest too.

Your VOTE matters!

Are you excited going to polling station to vote tomorrow or you are not looking forward going to vote?  Are thinking about not voting?   Are you confused on whom to vote for?  Are you afraid that when you vote for this candidate this and that will happen?  Have you had rumors that this will happen or that will happen if this person is elected?  Are you worried about what will happen after election? Hey friend! I hear you loud and clear. I am with you!.  I just wanted to encourage you to get out there and vote tomorrow. Do not be afraid. Get down on your knees and thank God before you vote and God will take care for the rest. Ask God to show you whom to vote for if you don’t know yet or you’re not sure. When that name (candidate) come in to your mind and you feel peace about it…head out to polling station with a big smile and vote for him.
 God of America today is the same God of America that was God when our founding fathers founded America. He is the same God, his promises and His words never change. Leaders come and go. This or that happens and things change. People change, events change. It is not because God is not watching but because God has a plan for each and everything.  My friend! God will still work with any president that will be elected in few hours from now. God loves America and He wants the best for America. He knows how to take care of America so well. He know what you and I really need it.  Please trust in Him, do your part and He will do His part. Pray that His will for America would be fulfilled through the person that would be elected in a few hours.  Speak blessing on him (elected president). Even if you don’t agree with him, please pray that God would have grace in him and He would show him the right way to lead us.  I have hope and peace of mind knowing that God’s grace never fails. God grace for America will never fail too. He is bigger than American problem.  You are very important in fulfilling God’s purpose today. Please vote and feel better about. There is nothing much we can do, we can only do the little things that we can like “ voting” and God can take care of the rest. God state in Psalm 33:12 that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!(ESV)

My friend! Do not forget that 1 Timothy 2:1 instruct us that   First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.(ESV)….so, get down of you knees, pray, share, belief, be thankful, be hopeful, be joyful….because this what you can do and God will do the rest.

Prayer of the day: “God, I thank you so much for the leader that you have already chosen. I want to go out there tomorrow and cast my vote  just to honor You. I know you already know the results, help me to be open for the change and to accept the leader that you are going bring my way in few hours. I pray that everyone my see your grace through all this. Help me and everyone else to have a peaceful voting. Help us to realize that you are the same God of America and you will never leave as alone. Thank you God for your grace for all of us through your son Jesus Christ” Amen.

Have a blessed day and have fun voting tomorrow. Be inspired voting, you are special person in God’s eyes, your vote matters a lot.
