Time With God

Spend Time Praising

Let us spend time to praise the LORD. (Shorts #1 of 2), ask the LORD for wisdom. (Shorts #2 of 2)

Jesus performed many amazing miracles, which were witnessed by his followers, especially his disciples, who never asked him to teach them how to do great miracles. Instead, one of them asked him to teach them how to pray. In Luke 11:1, Jesus was once in a specific place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as his cousin John taught his disciples.

That is how important it is for his disciples to learn how to pray to communicate with God, the Father Almighty. Miracles will come at a time that will be given to them, as we know they are the branches and Jesus is their vine, and when they remain faithful to the cause, they will harvest and save many souls. In John 15:5, Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing.”

Let us make it a habit to praise and talk to God. We must establish our relationship with God by obeying His will. Jesus said that the Father is more significant than him (John 14:28). Jesus also said that the kingdom of God has arrived and confirmed in the gospel of Luke 17:21 that the kingdom is “within you!” 

Let us praise the LORD Almighty. Praise the LORD Yahweh in His sanctuary and heaven above. His deeds are graceful and merciful. Praise His mighty deeds, His wholeness and richness are unsearchable, His unconditional love will never falter,  His excellent greatness is He alone is God as Jesus said: This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ” -John 17:3

Knowing and understanding the relations between the three in the godhead (Trinity or Tri-Unity) is essential to avoid doubt and confusion.

During his lifetime, Jesus never called himself God and considered himself God and none of his disciples had any notion that he was God. Most of the twisting happened with these passages; “He who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). In Colossians 1:15, Paul reminds us that Jesus Christ is “the image of the invisible God.” Again, “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily” (Colossians 2:9). It is “in the face of Jesus Christ” that we can know God (2 Corinthians  4:6).

Remember this: Mathew 28:18-20 – And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” This passage shows the distinction between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; there is uniqueness among these three.

The God we know is our Father, Yahweh. Jesus is our brother, Yeshua. John 6:63— The Holy Spirit gives life. Matthew 12:50 makes it clear that Jesus wants us to be obedient to the will of the Father. “For whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, sister, and mother.”

Meditate with these Bible verses:

Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth!”

Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.
