Yesterday, yeah!! hehe.. i have this feeling of going to my cicely's house just to see her, (seeing her makes me feel secure, how much more if ever im in her arms again ^^) anyways....seeing my cicely will satisfy me, but the question is, did i satisfy our God, of want He wants me to do, to be still and know that God is always there no matter what, the most powerful God who created all things in heaven and in earth and the same God who saved us from our sins.. Honestly, yesterday, i was really tempted to go and see my cicely, knowing that im just one ride away for just 10mins and pooff!! im home!! honestly, i did brake my covenant, cause i send her a message asking if i could come and the annswer is yes, whoah!!! guess what, hehe... yep your'e right, i didnt go. i dont want to break our (me and my cicely) covenant to God again, right here i pray to God for forgiveness because iam weak and so tempted, hey jets!! you just passed the 1 month trial, why dont you and your cicely add 2months more to see how I work in building you relationship to ME and to yourself and family and future family.

check this out.

But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you. When you are weak, My power is made perfect in you." So I am very happy to brag about my weaknesses. Then Christ's power can live in me.

In response to Hosea 3:1-5

I don't think the passage, Hosea 3:1-5, is pertaining to a woman specifically. In the old times, the Israelites were known for making idols and worshiping other gods. What better way to define it than by the use of the word, harlot.

Harlotry and idolatry mean the same thing in the Old Testament context. All throughout the Old Testament, the people of God disgraced His name by building golden idols for them to worship. They were not content with the provisions, blessings and mercy they received from God. They wanted a god that they can see, touch or even smell.

Moreover, these people did nothing but evil in the sight of the Lord. They were filthy and unworthy. They committed adultery among each other, brothers and sisters included.

Despite this unbearable fact, the Lord continued to hear their pleas whenever they cried to the Lord to forgive them. God's love for them was so great that He mercifully forgave them and showered them with blessings.

This is the Lord's message to Hosea.
"Go again. Love the people who have done evil things to you. Love those who curse you. Love those who have hurt you. Love them as I loved the children of Israel when they played the harlot with other gods and disgraced My name."

In the passage, Hosea bought the woman for a price. But actually, it is God who bought us for a price. Fifteen shekels may be a lot for the Israelites in their time, but the Lord paid a much higher price - His one and only Son, Jesus Christ. He was willing to sacrifice His only Son to save a world of sinners!

And the Lord instructs us,
"You shall not have any other gods before Me all the days of your life. Your devotion and love is only for Me. Do not equal Me to the things of this world nor to the people I placed before you. Do this, and so will I to you."

The message is clear, but I understood the real meaning only now. Let's focus our eyes, our lives, our hearts on the Lord, our Rock and Fortress. I may fail you, and you may fail me. But the Lord can't and will never do that.


can i?? can you?? YES!! We can! ^^

hehe.. this morning as i woke up, we had this prayer time as part of our covenant, after that i opened my bible and my devotional guide, and as i read it, it goes like this:

in Hosea 3:1-5

Then the Lord said to me, "Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and is committing adultery, just like the love of the Lord for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans."

So I bought her for myself for fifteen sheckels of silver, and one half homers of barely and I said to her "You shall stay with me many days; you shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man so, too, will be toward you"

For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim.

Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the Lord their God and david their king. They shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the latter days.

whoaa!! what is the message behind this?? what does God want me to do?? doea it mean that my partner have another man?? T_T or is it me that will buy a woman?? hahaha!! first i was confused and started thinking does she?? do i?? well...

For thought: Hosea may have been a minor prophet, but he was given a major task by God of demonstrating to Israel the kind of love that goes on loving even in the face of God asking the same of you at this moment? Then do as Hosea did... LEAN HARD ON THE LORD, HE WILL NEVER FAIL.


I Corinthians 13: 4-8

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself; is not puffed up; does not behave rudely; does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity,but rejoices in the truth; bears all things believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

listen to this song, in Christ alone.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

eomma, in Christ alone we stand. praying and waiting..

They threaten us, but we stand still...

One of the perks of being a Christian that I haven't realized until this morning is the power to withstand oppression and endure the enemy's torments.

However, having this much power requires more than just being a so-called Christian.
13Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

2 Kings 17:13
2 Kings 17-19 talks about King Hezekiah. Unlike his fathers, he lived a life holy and pleasing to the Lord. He destroyed all the high places offered to other gods, and had faith only in the Lord God. He kept His commandments and walked in His ways.
7And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

2 Kings 18:7
All throughout his days, the Lord was with Hezekiah. He won battles over the greatest of warriors, all because of the power God bestowed on him because of his obedience. There was none like Hezekiah among all the kings of Judah, none before, none after.

That is how the Lord rewards His faithful servants.

I want to win my battles Lord. I want to be victorious in everything I do. But before I gain your favor, I have to face my inner battles first and entrust everything to You. I will keep Your word in my heart and walk in Your ways all my life.

"Looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith"

Hebrews 12

its my devotion this morning, and this the one that came up as i open my devotional guide... as i read the bible and devotion guide, i hear God speaking to me, saying: My son, do not tremble in fear, do not lose hope, don't be sad. 3months is just a sleep away, don't look or think on what might happen while you and cicely are waiting, instead look up to Me, and just look literally, abide in Me, stay and grow, seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you ( Matt.6:33)

after i pray, i felt comfortable, ready to face the future... ^^ unshaken, immovable, because i know, we know that God is with us, Emmanuel, Amen...

my cicely, let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith.


Fear has no authority over me!

I often feel scared at the thought of my own future. Just thinking about it hurts my heart so much that I automatically burst into tears. How could something so unknown hurt me so much? How could something only God holds be so terrifying to me?

Do I lack in faith? Am I trusting God only for the time being? Then again, do I really trust Him with all my heart, my mind and my soul?

I may be wrong in thinking I've been faithful to the Lord for the past twenty-three years for a concern as small as this gets me trembling and shaking. :sorry:

Even with all this doubt, He answers me with absolute certainty in 2 Kings.
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
2 Kings 6:16 (KJV)
I've always feared the unknown, believing it might eat me up anytime. I've feared the future, thinking nothing good is in store for me. I've feared myself, knowing that I'm imperfect and that I can hurt people in the long run.

I've lived in fear, but the Lord has redeemed me. And His promises are the very ones I will be holding on to.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalms 23:4 (KJV)
Darkness is unknown; shadows are unfathomable, but the Lord is my guide and my light. Who shall I be afraid of?
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Matt 6:25-26 (KJV)
The future is not my problem. In fact, I shouldn't have any worries at all. The Lord provides even to the lowliest of creatures, and yet they don't equal to us in God's eyes. We are His precious children, His beloved princes and princesses. It's not a question of whether He will provide for us or not; it's more of us trusting that He will provide.
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Romans 3:24-26 (KJV)
I was a sinner - no doubt, but the Lord's abundant grace has justified us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Being a slave to sin by fearing it makes Jesus' sacrifice pointless. Entrusting Him our lives, our worries and fears is what He wants us to do.
23 And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.
2 Kings 13:23 (KJV)
The Lord never forgets His promises. He keeps His covenant throughout generations, and His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will be carried out to us.
With the covenant we now have with the Lord, I will hold on to the promise He has given us. I will hold on to Him who has never broken a promise with His beloved children. This time is for the Lord - for Him to do what He pleases in our lives, for His honor and glory to be proclaimed through us, and for His love and grace to be brought to every one of His creations.
These lives are for You - mine and Jetsky's. Use them as you please. :woooh:
