Gracious . . .

Words sometimes do not tell exactly the right feelings nor do it tell exactly the right attitude. Merely knowing a person by words is not a guarantee. It is more on the action that exactly tells the kind of person you are with even if you have been going together a long way already.

Although looking at the outward countenance of a person does not merely justify our knowing the person deeper because it is the inner being of a person who is the real one. Yet, for some reason, we can tell some real characteristic of that person based from the words and actions manifested.

It is only God who knows everything because He is our all-knowing God. He knows our coming in and our going out. He knows even our thoughts, our struggles, our desires and every single thing within and without is not hidden from Him. He is not only the all-knowing God but also the all-seeing God, our Omnipotent God. The Almighty one whose name is matchless!

We are all favored to have known a God who searches the inner heart and convicts us even to the marrow of our bones. It is God’s Love that makes everything possible for us. Everyday, we survive because of His unconditional love and His amazing grace! He supplies our being with not less than everything needed for us to go on, move on, and live a life to the fullest!

We are actually nothing apart from God. Whatever, whenever, and however, we have no single capacity to boast anything that we have and what we are and who we are. Everything is God’s. Our talents, our resources and wealth, our beauty, and our everything are borrowed. We are just stewards, so we don’t boast. God blesses everyone to be a blessing to everyone who’re in need and that no one can boast.

Indeed, we are to be thankful if that’s our role here on earth. It only means, God is blessing us in a way that we could also be a blessing. It is not wise to help and then boast. It is not even wise to help and then count. It is not even wise to help and then look back. 

Our actions and our reactions tell exactly the kind of heart we have and the kind of a person we are . . . We are to thank God for everything and acknowledge from the heart that HE is our total source. Apart from HIM we are nothing! Everyting is God’s and nothing is ours. To God be the GLORY forever and ever! Amen!

Philippians 3:7-9, But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge
of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him,
not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that
which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness
which is of God by faith:
