To God be the Glory



This is what I’m talking about.. I have been sitting there wondering what to share in the blog.. and day by day.. the days passed.. and I am still here.. WONDERING… sigh!!

I have always wanted to own a blog.. a place that I can share about the lessons I learned.. the love I received.. or maybe the challenges that I faced. But…my delay is all because of one word.. COMMITMENT… I worry about not having time to write, hence delaying my updates. So, my friends, have patience on me, give me sometimes to get use to this.. I will, hopefully, update you from time to time.. Discipline & Time management is all I need for now…hehe

Why don’t I just start with today.. that will make my life easier I guess… sharing with you what I’ve read this morning..

“He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.”
Then Peter said, "Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have."

This is how God moves. Reading this, I was reminded that night during the Overcomers Youth Alpha Camp where I shared about ‘How do I fill with the Holy Spirit?’. that whole day, I was in total dependant for God to move in His own way. It wasn’t a pleasant day as we would expect. Something happened during the noon break, it was an unhappy experience to some, well.. at least for me, I was caught in surprise and didn’t know how to handle it.. but the spirit of rebellious was all over and the enemy was really up to something.

That evening, the Lord impressed upon my heart that ‘RECONCILIATION’ is needed, I knew it, and knowing that not until they understand the whole situation, they will only do that. Obediently, I started the session requesting them to reconcile with one another before we ever bring our offerings to God. (Matthew 5: 23-26). It was not as we expected, the one we expect them to reconcile, did not do it.. but rather, one guy walked in obedient, reconciling with his friends. That was really a breakthrough. Though few leaders and I were kinda disappointed, but again, I would say, and I told this to the leaders, it takes total obedience to act upon God’s Word. I believed, God moved, only that.. if you don’t response, you will never get what He has for you.

It was also that night our dear friends the lost their father & friend. We asked many questions, but it was not answered. We were there standing strong for our dear friends. For that moment onwards, the Lord has filled each of our hearts with His love. Our love for one another grew. Even though the camp has ended for almost two weeks now, the love they have especially among the brothers encouraged me greatly, for that I am thankful.

Few days ago, during my morning devotion, the Lord reminded me that our battle is not against flesh & blood (human) but rather the rulers of darkness. In other words, fight against the sin, not against the sinner. Often at times, we do not deal with the situations, but rather disappoint with human behavior. I shared this with the group of leaders last night, and really seek God’s forgiveness upon our misjudgment. Perhaps we need to see it in a broader view. May the Lord have mercy on us.

For this camp, even though the Lord did not move as what our human minds want, even there were unhappy and disappointing experiences, I strongly believed, the Lord has taken out something that is negative, and filled it with Himself and His love. ALL GLORY TO GOD!!
