Pipelines of Blessings

Give! When you give during your times of need, you replace your poverty thinking with prosperity thinking!

2 cor 9:7

God loves a cheerful giver.

When you give, you shall have plenty.

What if what you have right now is just enough? And someone’s gonna approach you and asks for what you have?

1kings 17:7-16.  The blessing of having God in your life

We have pipelines of blessings

To God, giving is a special matrix of generosity.

God assigned to us  and somebody to us who will give blessing…

ONE BIG MESSAGE:  If you give, you will have plenty!

Lessons:

You have no excuse not to give

Most of the time our needs blinds us not to give. Wealth is measured by how grateful you are! God is not asking us to give of what we don’t have.

Give first because life will find a way to repay you.

Give back to God first. Life has a way of giving back to you when you need. Ang sarap bigyan ng nagpapasalamat.

Abundance formula: 100-10-20-70.

If you want to give more, you will receive more .

If you need more, you gotta give more.

God is your supplier. Be faithful in small matters, and God will give you more in big matters.

Be a happy giver.

We started with giving because we’re declaring to the world that God will give us more!

Be generous!  When you’re ready to give more, you will receive more. #

God of Wonders

If there is one part of history in the Old testament where God’s powers were displayed. It was during the time of Moses.

  • The Burning Bush
  • The serpent turning staff
  • The ten plagues
  • The sea divided into two
  • Pillars of cloud and fire
  • Ten Commandments
  • Manna from heaven
  • Water from the rock

And the list goes on. During this time, it was very rich in experiences where lots of us are asking now to happen. The display of God’s wonders. We look up in the sky, hoping to see something unusual. An incredible snap of God’s finder that will clear the traffic, make us healthy instantly, or just one touch and the deal of our life is served right in front of us. Or maybe, the experience of hearing God, receiving food daily from heaven and water that never runs out.

Friends, those who lived during those times were amazed. Yes they were! But at the same time they were not satisfied for long. They complained. They questioned, and some turned their backs. How many miracles needed for them to believe everyday? God can make the sun stand still for us in days and be amazed, but then what? So God said, it’s about time to make it permanent. The greatest wonder of all. To send His son, Jesus. Be human. Live a normal life, and show the way how to live. Accepted death, Rose again, so that we too may live.

Life’s greatest miracle is the essence of who God is… LOVE.

A great show of God’s power can still be seen on how the sun and stars remain hanging up there, or how a small seed can turn into a tree. But what remains is the greatest display of His power inside our hearts when we allow Him to be our God. It blesses us permanently, and blesses the world around us. Simple smile, hug, touch, care, concern… love.

Hang on there, your life is God’s complete showcase of His love and blessings. Let Him be God. Receive His miracles.

HAPPY SUNDAY TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

God’s Got You Covered

by Bro Bo Sanchez

I’m glad I wasn’t Moses.

Can you imagine his headaches?

First, he had to lead thousands of ex-slaves through scorching deserts whose favorite pastime was to bicker, grumble, and complain. Every day, he heard them say, “Moses, why did you rescue us from Egypt? You should have left us there. Because now, we’re hungry. We’re thirsty. We need bread. We need meat. We need water. We need WIFI.” (Okay, not the last one. But you get my point.)

Second, God’s plan of escape from Pharaoh’s army of steel chariots was marching through the Red Sea. That’s why the talk today is Redpool.

If you think it’s corny, and the foulmouthed superhero Deadpool has nothing to do with our topic, you’re absolutely right. We’re just having fun.

Gee. A body of water dividing up into two? When did that happen before?

Nope, I wouldn’t want to be Moses.

Yet in our life, we face many Red Seas too. And somehow, God comes through for us. He tells us, “I’ll be with you. I’ll be before you and I’ll be behind you. I’ve got you covered.”

Never give up. Keep marching forward.

Yep, even through a crimson sea.

Have a miraculous Feast today!

May your dreams come true,

On our Journey to Freedom

Sometimes the short way is not the best way! Keep moving forward! Don’t get stocked!

Learn how to be free! Saan mo gustong makarating? If you want to go somewhere, don’t get stocked!

2 Problems in the Journey to Freedom

Detour.

Ok na sana, kayalang…Expectation versus reality is different.

God allows the detour as doorways to our destiny. God operates on delays to make is ready. Sometimes the longer road lead us to sweeter success.  God grows our faith, not just test it.

How God operates: the greater the pullback, the greater the comeback!

Despair.

There are times old problems resurrects in your life.  An addiction comes back in your life and we sometimes doubt God.

Reality: when people are gripped by despair, they’ll choose the predictability of slavery than the uncertainty of freedom.

When we move forward, there are other problems that God is using to make us move forward.

Sometimes God asks you to stop crying; move and act!

In life, even if you are in the right place, because you are not moving forward, you’ll get  crushed!

Keep on moving forward!

Pray like crazy

Work like crazy

Repeat like crazy

Thank God for the problems!

God’s redirection: MOVE FORWARD!

Exodus 14:15

Be still…move on!  Sometimes things are confusing!  Be still in the inside, because God is in control.  But keep on moving on, on the outside!  Know that God loves you!  God wants us to have peace in the inside.

As we move from the outside, let’s have peace in the inside!

Ang sarap ng may Diyos!

When pride and fear come in, we take the shorter cut.  We’ve got to do it the longer way!

Life is not about short cuts.  Life is a journey.

Mas masarap bumiyahe kasama si Lord!  Take the long cut: love, forgive!

How to have peace in the inside?  Trust in the staff that God gave you!  Use your staff and raise it up high…Then miracles happen!

We need a world where in we encourage everyone!

Miracles happen when you keep moving forward!

Even the Bad Times

 

by Kristine Zorilla

One time, I was randomly browsing through my Facebook feed when a friend suddenly posted a quote about a fight with his current girlfriend. Out of nowhere I just had the urge to add a comment: “We cannot change people, we can only love them as much as we can.”

He noticed my comment and we ended up having a quick chat. He thanked me for the advice afterwards and told me that he felt better after our conversation.

I always feel glad whenever I get to comfort a good friend. But then, I thought of reflecting on my own advice – Are we really willing to just love people? Are we patient? Are we selfless?

The common reason for the failure of a relationship is when one party becomes more concerned of his own interest that the other. It is sometimes hard not to want to change our partners becomes as individuals we have our specific preferences of perfection.

But if you’re wondering why your relationships keep failing, maybe because all this time you’ve been selfish. You’ve probably become more concerned of your satisfaction that his or her affection.

Friend, don’t bring up the past by trying to change someone according to your preferences.

Love is not about the good memories, but those times when he or she’s in her worst self but you’re still willing to listen to his or her woes. Love is not about the time you bonded over romantic campfire at the beach, but those random Sunday afternoons when you’ve no money and you can still have a great time while dining at 7/11. Love is not just all about the good times, but even the bad times.

If it’s the opposite of everything I said above then it’s not love.

Let’s spend our year of mercy by loving the special people in our lives, our family, our friends and even our enemies. Have a blessed Sunday! ♥

 

 

 

 

 

The Voice of Truth

by: Antonette Hicana

 

A gentle voice spoke to me

The sound of truth that set me free

He said “I love you child, with all my heart

There is nothing in this world that can tear us apart.”

 

He said “I am with you through ups and downs

Trust me my child, I won’t let you drown

I am here through your walk in pain

Until the day of the victory, you sure will gain.”

 

He said “Come, rest in my arms, I know you’re tired

Your wheel of life, you can let me drive

My child, you don’t have to do it all,

I want you to know, I’m in control.”

 

Jesus, I believe You already supplied

Everything I need, when on the cross You died

If I can trust You with my eternal life

The battle is Yours, I know I’ll survive.#

Siklab

by Rose Ann Tano

Pakiwari’y sagana naman ang buhay ko;

And’yan ang pamilya’t kaibigang totoo.

May pagkain sa hapag, nagsasalu-salo;

Nairaraos ang pagpapagal sa trabaho.

 

Sapat ang salapi’t wari’y umaasenso;

Sunod ang luho, nabibili ang gusto,

Naglalakbay kung saan-saang ibayo.

Ah, oo! Ito ang buhay – sapat na’t, sakto!

 

Hanggang magising ako’t maulinigan

Sa sigaw ng kabuuan kong kumakalam.

Uhaw sa mga bagay na makabuluhan;

‘Di marapat maging sapat ang “sapat lamang.”

 

Mang-akit pa ng mga kaibigang masikap

Na magsisindi ng apoy na sisiklab

Sa buhay kong malamlam at kulang sa tingkad.

Ito ang buhay – makislap, tunay na ganap!

 

Maraming salamat Sa’yo Panginoon

Sa tulad nilang hitik ng inspirasyon!

Ako’y tinutulak sa’king limitasyon;

Sila’y biyayang higit pa sa bakasyon.
