Perpetual recharge is necessary for
Spiritual need and dependency upon Lord Jesus Christ
Through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God
Without it, we will be blinded by sins and fall into devil’s trap

Deuteronomy 8:3 (NIV)
He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

Matthew 4:4 (NIV)
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Luke 4:4 (NIV)
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’”

“Continual Recharge” came as I was going to recharge my electronic device. The need to recharge it daily made my mind wonder that I need to continually recharge from God. Then the word “perpetual” came.

A Baby

Posted on

A baby is a good mimicker
A baby is a mirror reflection
Of what the parents portray
Of what actions are observed

A baby is dependent
A baby is trusting
On those who take care
On those who nurture

How much more the nurturer needs Jesus Christ
How much more the nurturer needs to depend in Christ
How much more the nurturer needs God’s strength
How much more the nurturer needs God’s wisdom
How much more the nurturer needs to give good examples
How much more the nurturer needs to walk the talk
How much more the nurturer needs to lead properly

Above all, the nurturer needs God’s nurture
Nurture to fear and revere God
Nurture to listen and obey God with their daily lives
A daily life as a daily sacrifice to God.

The actions of my cute toddler suddenly came upon me as I was dozing off. When he took my lip balm and swiftly apply it onto his lips due my niece apply my mother’s lip moisturiser onto his. Then another occasion of taking out the weighing machine under my parents’ bed to weigh himself due to whenever my brother enters the room often takes it out and weigh himself. The third occasion was observing my parents to wipe legs with the blue cloth on the floor. Upon hearing the words to wipe his legs, he runs into my parents’ room and immediately stomps onto that cloth. But the helper intends to wipe his legs with another cloth. Fourth occasion is to spray perfume onto his armpits knowing it smelly due to perspiration whenever he got a hold of my mum’s perfume.

Those actions amuse me and make me laugh whenever my family talk about it or suddenly playing visually in mind.

These reminded me of Deuteronomy 6:5-7 (NASB), “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”

Brain

…….
… Brain …
Brain?
Is it my brain?
Is it from my brain?
Is it really from my brain?

It is the brain that
The Lord blesses me with
When I was in my mother’s womb.

Where is my brain?
What should I do with it?
How should I use it?
Why do I need to use it?
When do I need to use it?

Brain is in my head.
Brain is inside the skull.
Brain is protected by the skull.
How marvellous is God’s creation.

I should use it for God’s glory
I should use it to please God
I should use to do His will
I should use to be responsibly.
I should use to care for the nature.
I should use it to not to abuse my power.

I need to use it by exercising my brain
I need to use it for my development as well
I need to use it whenever I can
I need to use it to fill God’s Word
I need to use it to ponder God’s Word
I need to use it when to put God’s Word into actions.

For His glory.
For He is the One who gives us
The wisdom of creativity
The wisdom of improving lives
The wisdom to care for one another
The wisdom to tend and care the earth
The wisdom to solve problems

The sudden word “brain” gives me inspiration and the above inspiration comes naturally to me, and to understand God better and grow in my faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord.

I see that it is crucial for us to know that we are His creations and we need to depend in Him to grow in wisdom from above and how God gives us the ability to produce wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18a). The Scriptures shows how God blesses people with wisdom and understanding in terms of skills, knowledge and creating the tabernacle and the priestly garments (Exodus 28:2-4; 31:2-4; 35:30-32).

Society Values

Is freedom good for the youngsters?
Saturday, 1 January 2011

Refer: Exodus 4:5-10;5:28-30;6:6-8 (KJV)

When a teenager turns to 21 year old, they are considered adult and can make his/her own decisions. I observe that nowadays the society has changed a lot from olden days.

Olden days value the sanctity of marriage and a responsible living. This also teaches the younger generation to be more responsible in their actions and decisions. No abortion. Children are being valued as a gift. Children honour and obey their parents. The grown up children provide and take good care of their old parents.

Current society starts to allow dating couple to stay together and have intimate relationship outside married. They choose not to live with their parents. All they want is to break free from the authority figures. It is regarded independent of their parents. Not just that, they feel that they can do whatever they want. No one can restrict them. This may seem trivial to most people, but it may not be the case. Virginity is not being valued anymore. This also teaches people to be irresponsible in their marriage life and take it as a game. Divorces rate are increasing. That is why there are so many broken families. Children are hurt. More of them are abandoned. Abortion is accepted. Some mothers even murder their newly born babies. Not just that, more elderly home. Old parents are abandoned by their grown up child. The grown up child only thinks for themselves, instead of caring the old.

What is the society turning into?

In Deuteronomy 5:29 “O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” speaks about God’s heart. The reason of His commandments is meant for the well-being of ourselves and our future generations. Our authoritative figure who knows what is right and wrong may rebuke us when we are children, but it is meant for our own good. During young times, we feel restricted in what we do, but it is meant for our own good.

What I mean is not all conservative traditions are correct such as being superstitious. But their values about living, marriage, and commitment are good for us.

The best guidance for our lives can be found in God’s Word.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for letting me to grow up in a conservative family. I’m thankful for my parents to guide me with their value system. This shapes my value system and the decisions that I make. As I think back of my parents’ disciplines, now I’m thankful for it.
