I am convinced that what happened to us is of God’s love, in God’s time, and by God’s way, with the purpose to build up our character to the God’s glory. It is our character, not our work, that brings us into eternity.
With God’s guidance, everything will go in a good direction. Put our uncertainty and worry about in the hands of God. Believe in Jesus, you know that it is better to put yourself in the hands of God than in your own hands, because God has mercy and love, in order to build our character, He will place us in certain situations.
God will not let us suffer in vain, and there must be lessons for us to learn from our suffering. Everyone has a different lesson to learn, but I know that this lesson will be accomplished in our character building, making us more and more like Jesus, and making Christ magnified in us. Thank God that overwhelming victory is ours through the Lord Jesus who loves us!
Yes, Jesus loves us! We are God’s children. We are not alone to face hardship, let Jesus accompany us to go through the darkness with the hope to see the light. Let’s pray for God’s mercy and grace on us, pray for giving us humble and obedient hearts, full trust in the Lord Jesus, and wise actions to deal with the challenges and setbacks of every life encounter. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen!
What does the Lord require of you?
‘He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. ‘ Micah 6:8 NIV
- Let’s take a closer look:
- Act justly: Do things fairly and justly.
- Love mercy: Have good intentions from the heart to help people relieve pain and comfort them.
- Be humble: Focus on serving others and less on yourself.
- Walk with God: Let go of your own opinions and see things through God’s eyes.
God’s words have the power to comfort people. If God’s words are brought into people’s hearts, God will work in their hearts. Once their hearts accept those words, there will be actions. Once the actions are changed, their lives will be changed.
This is how God works!
Therefore, we need to use God’s words to comfort and to edify people.
The above is what I received during my spiritual devotion to God, and I would like to share it with you.
Bless you all to have God’s words in your heart and to speak often comforting and edifying words to people surrounding you. Amen!
- Let’s take a closer look:
Seek Him and you will find Him
The Lord Jesus loves to talk to those who believe in Him, and He wants to be part of your life so that you can be transformed by Him and become a holy vessel available to God.
Seek Him more, make time for yourself to be quiet, pour out all the good and bad in your life to Him, and He will comfort your hearts through the Holy Spirit. My purpose is to encourage you to seek the Lord Jesus.
The Lord has more confidence in you than you have in yourself!
When you read this article, it is by no means accidental, it is the Lord’s cry of confidence to you, I hear the Lord says:
“My Child, you have more confidence and courage than you know yourself.
Faith and courage are gradually cultivated through difficulties, so don’t be afraid of failure or fall. God upholds those who fall.
You are more courageous and wiser than you know yourself, I have always guarded you, no matter where you go, I will take you where I am. Because I have taken care of you since before you were born, and accompany you for the rest of your life.
I know your growth process from childhood to adulthood, including your joy, anger, sorrow, and happiness. Actually I like chatting with you very much. I want you to know that I love you very much and that I am willing to wait for you, but you know that the end is at hand, and I occasionally want you to follow in my footsteps urgently.
But I am patient, just as you are patient with me waiting for my arrival. My Child! Don’t forget that Heavenly Father loves you, and the Lord loves you too! “
God’s Words – For His Lost Children (3)
God wants to tell you a story.
Once there was a farmer going to the city to visit a friend. His friend was a rich man from a wealthy family. That year farmer’s harvest was short of and he didn’t have money to purchase the necessary seeds for the next planting, so he was planning to borrow some from that rich friend.
Unexpectedly, when the farmer tried to explain his intention, his friend told him that there was a hole in the roof of the house and he needed money to repair it. In this way, the rich man made the farmer retreat and leave with nothing. Then the farmer went home.
On the way home the farmer prayed for a miracle, but the miracle did not happen. The farmer had to rely on the only remaining seeds to sow. Unfortunately, there was a drought that year, and the crops failed to harvest again. In the end, the farmer starved to death.
Before he died, the farmer saw a very rich feast with a lot of delicious food that he had never tasted before, God let him enjoy it. Although the farmer suffered from hunger, he attended God’s feast and was full.
That rich friend, who had no shortage of food, clothing, and farm fields, was thrown into hell full of fear when he died. Although he has not done any damage to others, he was unmerciful and had no compassion. Such a person is not qualified to go to heaven.
I tell you this story to let you know:
Whoever suffers a lot in the world, I will take special care of him in my Kingdom;
Whoever enjoys a lot in the world and don’t give alms, I don’t give him alms either.

God wants to tell you a true story.
There was a farmer in the country. He had a tree. Every time after working, he would take a rest in the shade of the tree. Because of the luxuriant branches, he often fell asleep unintentionally while sitting under the tree. When he woke up again, it was already time for sunset. For a few days in a row, he couldn’t finish his field work. In the end, the harvest naturally dwindled.
That year everyone had a good harvest, but his harvest was insufficient. He felt sad and asked God for help. God sent the angel to tell him to cut down the branches and prevent the branches from becoming too lush, because the tree grew too large and sucked up soil nutrients. The farmer listened to the angel’s words, and he did it. Later, because the branches were not so dense, he would be illuminated by the sun when he rested, so he no longer fell asleep like before. The next harvest, he also had a good harvest.
God wants you to review what you do every day. If you have any behavior not thoughtful, you have to improve it. If you can’t change on your own, you have to find other ways, such as looking for a pastor, family members or friends. If they can’t help, you have to come to me your God.
God says ” Anyone who asks me for help knocking on my door, I respond. God helps self-helped people, I love the world, every one of them before they were born, I have known them.
My Children, help me to find me back my lost children. Convey my love for the world and ask them to return to the arms of Heavenly Father, and don’t get lost again. Only by my side can there be peace and joy.
Lost people! My love for you is so deep, why can’t you recognize me as your creator? I love you, let Jesus Christ take away your sins, let Jesus Christ bring you the message of eternal life. Why are you still not obedient? Why do you still go to idolatry and make me sad? I am your father, you are my children. My love does not change, even at the moment the heaven and the earth pass away, I still love you. So you have to repent and convict your sins, thus my love is worthy, and Jesus’ sacrifice was not in vain.
As for those who do evil, I don’t recognize them as my children. They will pay for their evil actions and unrighteous methods. They will die in the lake of sulfur and fire ,and suffer from the fire. At that time, they will have no chance to repent. I will not listen to their pleadings. Even if a righteous person intercedes for them, I will not forgive. I will never forgive those who should be punished because I am just.
My children, especially the lost children, hurry back to my embrace. Only with me can you receive the protection you deserve.
At the moment of destruction of heaven and earth, the land will be cracked, and the sky will be heavily clouded. The tsunami will be soaring, the mountains collapsing, and the sea pouring out. Only my people can come to my kingdom, the rest will be wiped out with heaven and earth. The evil will stay in the abyss and suffer. This kind of thing will happen, this is my arrangement, it is destined. Be aware and watchful. My words and the love I give you will never change. “
Lord loves you! God loves the world. Amen!

#note: going to idolatry means that you love something/someone more than God. They could be idols or property or money or fame or something/ someone you place more importance than God.
God’s Words – For His Lost Children (1)
May 27, 2011
God wants to announce the good news to you. He wants to enter the crowd to observe people’s actions.
Anyone who has grievances can be redressed.
Anyone who encounters injustice will appear righteousness after His intervention.
He must carefully examine everyone’s mind. So you need to stay alert, and have no evil thoughts in your heart, otherwise you will be regarded as evil people.
Anyone who intends to help others to achieve good results will be rewarded.
Anyone who acts evil for the sake of selfishness and falsely testifies to frame others will be severely punished.
God is fair and just, full of mercy and tolerance for people. He loves us and sent Jesus Christ his only son to suffer for our sins, so that we can establish a good relationship with God through Jesus. Those who believe in Jesus Christ, He gives them the right to be God’s children.
Those of you who don’t understand this truth, should understand it quickly, because this is the message to eternal life, and you have to understand it.
These words are written by the Spirit of God, hoping to help people who have not yet become Christians to understand God’s thoughts and minds.
Give up your past persistence. This world is about to perish. After the arrival of the new heaven and the new earth, it will be a beautiful world, and only those who obey God’s commandments can survive.
God himself said to me: “My dear people are my beloved children. I want you to stop being lost and sad. I will give you a beautiful world, where there is no darkness, no injustice, and everything is handled in accordance with the principles of fairness and justice. I will live with you and will take care of your needs carefully. You will not get hungry, will not receive cold, will not be sick, and have no sin. What I promised will be done. Be an honest person so that I can pick you up smoothly.
My children! Because I love each of you, I am willing to make this promise to you. Believe me, be an honest person, do not violate the Ten Commandments, do not do what I hate, and I will bless you. “
The angel wants me to tell you these words, the Lord loves you, Jesus Christ loves you. Amen!

In the New Testament, repentance is called a change of mind, and the literal translation in Greek means “change your mind.” Every time you change your mind, replace it with God’s, you are repenting. Whether it’s regarding yourself, sin, God, people, life, future, or everything else, when you are willing to change yourself for God, you are repenting.
When we are willing to turn to God, to receive God’s love, to know that He loves us, and begin to love God, that is the repentance!
When we are willing to know Jesus’ salvation, to put down our own opinions and to obey God’s will, that is the repentance!
When we shed tears under the touch of the Holy Spirit, and have actions to transform ourselves, it is the best proof of repentance. God treasures us, including every teardrop we shed, He collects it.
God does not rebuke people but loves us very much. If we truly love God, we should learn from Him, not rebuke people, but love those whom He loves. What He loves is not only the Christians and the godly ones, but also all human being. Sincere and godly Christians are humble and gentle, and in them the likeness of Jesus Christ is seen.
When people’s hearts are touched by the Holy Spirit, they truly experience God’s presence, then the repentance will come. We just bring people to the Lord Jesus and pray for them. When people repent, the Holy Spirit will work to make people convicted that they are sinners and need the Savior Jesus Christ. Once they decide to turn from their sins, their repentance will lead them to the forgiveness of God.
When I truly repent, I will never go back how I was in the past, because in Christ, I’m a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come!
If you need someone to pray for you or your family, please leave your message. I can pray for you. I hope this sharing helps you to turn to God . Amen!
God made him (Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV)
Evangelize with love
Once I attended a Bible study class, and I checked the book of Genesis on the same day. After the class, the Heavenly Father came to me and said to me:
“My Child! When I created the heaven and the earth, everything was good. By faith, I created light, created all things, and created mankind in my own image, but mankind lived in sin, which distorted the good intentions when I created them, so I regret creating people.
Because they only looked like us on the outside, their hearts and actions were shrouded in darkness and sin. I could not bear them to live in sin and went to death. Therefore, I sent Light – Jesus – my beloved Son to save mankind, to drive away the darkness for them and washed away their sins.
I made Jesus, the sinless, to be punished for human’s sins, so that in him human might become the righteousness of God.
That’s my love for human being, and that’s why Jesus became the sin offering, through Jesus human can recognize me as Father, and call me Abba Father or Heavenly Father.
My Children! This is the gospel. Jesus bore the sins of everyone and died, then resurrected, conquering death and sin. Only if you believe in Jesus and confess Jesus as Lord, you can enter eternal life.
This is the gospel! Share it with your loved ones, family, and friends, and tell them that there is an invisible Father who is waiting for you to repent, return to Him, and realize it by believing in Jesus as Lord. My Spirit is the Holy Spirit will lead you to transform. When you receive my love, you will be saved by grace.
Lost people! My love for you is so deep, I draw you with loving-kindness, even when the world disappears, my loving-kindness will not change. Come back to my embrace! Don’t be lost anymore, only in me, only by my side will there be peace and joy, and with me, you can receive the protection you deserve. I love you, put your trust in Jesus- my beloved Son! Whoever seeks me will find me!”
The angels praised: “My Lord almighty gave his beloved Son to the world,
Love never fails! God’s love will never end!”
The Lord loves you! God loves the world, Amen!
My dear Child,

For in me you live and move and have your being. You are my offspring. (Acts 17:28) Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; (Jeremiah 1:5) and before the creation of the world I choose you in me to be holy and blameless in my sight. (Ephesians 1:4)
My eyes saw your unformed body; all the days ordained for you were written in my book. (Psalms 139:16) I marked out your appointed times in history and the boundaries of your lands. (Acts 17:26) You are made fearfully and wonderfully, for I created your inmost being ( Psalms 139:13-14) and brought you forth from your mother’s womb.(Psalms 71:6)
I was misrepresented by people who didn’t know me. (John 8:41-44) I am not cold and angry, I have abundant love for you. Whoever lives in love lives in me, and I in them, for I am love. (1 John 4:16) My love has lavished on you, so you should be called God’s children! (1 John 3:1) The good gifts I give you are much better than people in the world can offer you.

(Zephaniah 3:17) I will never stop doing good to you, (Jeremiah 32:40) because you are my treasured possession. (Exodus 19:5)
Seek me, and you will find me. (Matthew 7:7) Take delight in God, and I will give you the desires of your heart, (Psalms 37:4) for it is God who works in you to will, to act, and to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)
I’m able to do immeasurably more than all you ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20) I encourage your hearts and strengthen you, (2 Thessalonians 2:17) as well as comfort you in all your troubles. (2 Corinthians 1:4) When you are brokenhearted, I’m close to you (Psalms 34:18) as you are my lamb in my arms, I carry you close to my heart. (Isaiah 40:11) I will wipe every tear from your eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever. (Revelation 21:4)
I’m your Father, and I love you as much as I love my Son Jesus whom I sent to the world. (John 17:23) Jesus has revealed me to you and my love for you. (John 17:26)
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, (Hebrews 1:3) and his first coming is for you, not against you, (Romans 8:31) not counting your sins. (2 Corinthians 5:19) I loved you and sent my Son as an atoning sacrifice for your sins (1 John 4:10) in order to reconcile you to myself through Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:18)
I did not spare my own Son, but gave him up for you all. (Romans 8:32) Whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2:23) Nothing can ever separate you from my love. (Romans 8:38)
Return home to my arms! (Luke 15:20) Let’s have a feast and celebrate. (Luke 15:23) I’m your Father, and will be your Father forever, (1 John 3:1) but are you willing to receive Jesus, believing in his name to become children of God? (John 1:12)
I’m looking forward to your returning home. (Luke 15:20)
