Grace, Stay.


3 Comments

One lovely peaceful sunny day, Grace is in her room, kneeled down, seeking God’s face desperately.  For some reasons, she stood up, opened her door, went out and checked her phone. Her mom sent her a message asking if Grace wants to go with her Auntie Cris together with her cousin to watch a movie. Grace loves movies! She wanted to go! But she doesn’t want to rush her devotion time. She sent her Auntie Cris a message saying that she will go. She went back on her room, opened her bible in Matthew 2. “Stay” that one word was so powerful. God spoke! God didn’t want grace to go in the movie house! God doesn’t want Grace to rush and sacrifice her devotion time! Let’s see if Grace obeyed or disobeyed God.

Grace told God, “God, you know I love going in a movie house! God, the class will start 2 days from now. I love to watch a movie and forget all our final requirements before graduation day! God please let me come”. God kept quiet. Grace got the same answer. God wants her to stay. With a disappointed heart, Grace stood up, went out her room, checked her phone and read her mama’s message saying “Grace, don’t come, just stay there and rest”. Grace honored what her mama said. Grace knew that God wanted her to stay. God used her mama to confirm what He wants Grace to do. Finally, Grace obeyed.

Another  message from her mama telling her they will go to salon for a manicure and pedicure! Her mom’s treat! Whoa! Cool for Grace! She loves going to salon more than actually watching a film in a movie house! This is the reward Grace got from obeying God’s command. Instant bonding time with her mama and an instant make-over for her fingers!

See Matt. 2:13, Ephesians 6:1-3, Jeremiah 29:11

Lesson

If God says, stay, you stay. You must trust God with your all. Though sometimes, you think that what is in front of you now is the best, well you are wrong! God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts! His plans are better that our plans! Grace thought that watching a movie is fun, but God made her realize that being with her mama in a salon is a lot fun! No rush. Just chilling. Relaxing intimately with God. That is how much God loves us. Be sensitive in His voice. God may speak through the Bible, even through your parents, brothers/sisters, through posters, animals, gadgets, television, and even through nature and dreams.

I want to share this simple prayer that I wrote when I was in college. I was so desperate that time that I wanted peace.  Correction, we wanted peace, so I wrote a prayer and post it on my Facebook account so everyone can help and join me in prayer for peace.

Okay. Let me tell you a bit of what was the situation during those days.  Every year I join competitions, particularly dancing. Every year we celebrate College Days. It’s like unwinding time for college students. So days before the competition night, we were rehearsing chaosly. Haha. sorry for using that word. I don’t even know if there’s a word like that. Alright, in short, we are so disorganize! I was so frustrated, competition night was so near yet we haven’t completed our routine. We had a lot of argument. So that is why I wrote this prayer ..

A PRAYER FOR PEACE

HEAVENLY FATHER we ask YOU to TAKE OVER 🙂

We REPENT.

WE are struggling. It weakens us.

WE are really in need of YOUR MIGHTY HELP.

We are being persecuted.

We THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, AMAZING GRACE AND ABUNDANT MERCY.

We PRAY for EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION, ORGANIZATION, PEACE and HARMONY every rehearsals.

MONITOR us OH GOD.

BE our PERSONAL CHOREOGRAPHER.

This competition is not about us. It’s all ABOUT JESUS. GO DANCE FOR CHRIST! Besides, HE was The ONE who gave this talent.

It’s all for HIM, all for HIS GLORY.

WE THANK AND PRAISE YOU YAHWEH.IN JESUS NAME. WE PRAY. AMEN.

Need to GAS UP your spiritual muscles ? READ MATTHEW 5      😉

LET US DO our BEST and surely, GOD will do the REST 😀

And He shall reign forever, He shall reign forever, He shall reign FOREVER and ever. Amen.

Get READY!

BLESSINGS will RUN AFTER you!

ANALYZE everything before concluding 🙂

Apology for the text format, I want you to read it as it is. As you notice it has a lot of all caps, that’s how mad I am that time. I was so bold with that prayer. After I posted that prayer, I was so in peace. God‘s embrace was so comforting. I realize that I cannot fix that situation so I hand it over to God.

Alright, I just want to share that in all situation, good or bad, prayer helps a lot. We acknowledge that God is in control, we cannot do it on our own. So every time we pray, we allow God to take over, to intervene and that all we have to do is to give all our cares, fears, doubts to God and TRUST Him. He is able to fix any problem in His perfect way and best timing. God’s time-table is different from ours. His timetable is the best than ours. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. His ways are better than our ways.

If you are in a situation where you don’t know what to do. Give it to God. Give all your burden to God. Pray. Talk to Him. Tell Him everything. He is listening 24/7. He cares a lot.

Loves,

Chariz 😉

 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.

 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Psalm 91

Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.

Psalm 1:1-3
