Psalms 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning
A few days ago, my very good friend, Senior Education Officer in The Ministry of Education in St. Kitts, Mr. Daryl Lloyd asked me what time I dedicate to do all of this writing. When I tell you that the world follows me, I'm not lying. Let me answer that publicly. Over the years, I've built my life around ONE LAW FROM THE BIBLE. That is found in Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Therefore, I've always dedicated and given my first fruits to God. That also means that when I awake, I spend much time in prayer, singing, meditation and devotion, whether things are good for me or challenging. I also did that even while wrongfully incarcerated by The Prime Minister Dr. Denzil L. Douglas Labour Party Administration for six(6) months on ancient SEDITION charges just for writing an article on my blog that offended the top man in the land. That is just what has always kept me motivated and kept the blessings rushing into my life despite my trials.
After I've properly re-focused my heart, mind and soul for the day, then I have fun writing online or I CRUSH some rocks and knock some sixes in Blazing Star Movement Politics - www.theblazingstarmovement.com, as I am NEVER afraid to speak out - something that ASPIRING PRIME MINISTERS must never be afraid to do. Our lives begin to END when we remain silent about the things that matter most says the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
My study passage this morning, minutes ago, came from the book of Jeremiah chapter 30. Verse 3 particularly encouraged me. Let me share what I learned from reading Jeremiah 30:3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
Let me make a bold statement here and now. GOD CARES FOR ALL OF US. Even if we are going through the deepest trial and most severe pit, GOD STILL WANTS US TO KNOW THAT THERE IS HOPE AHEAD!
The Prophet Jeremiah, like me, was instructed to guide a large following with GOD-INSPIRED words straight from the heart of God. God instructs him in Jeremiah 30:2 to write down ALL THE WORDS HE GIVES TO HIM, just as I too am doing now.
Sometimes when I re-read the devotionals and the several SPIRITUAL GUIDE books that I've written, I sometimes question myself as to if I really wrote them for real. I then had to conclude over and over again, that it couldn't be me, but the GODLY SPIRIT IN ME, as many of the sermon messages and devotionals and motivational speeches I write are meant directly for me - not for you. I'm not ever sure if they bless you, but I know they bless me and that's what matters MOST to me. I've been writing devotionals ever since I got saved at age 10 while attending The Antioch Baptist Church, pastored then by Dr. Kelvin Jones, when God used North Carolina - USA Missionary Brother Bob Holbert to lead me to Christ. As I read and studied and researched and wrote as a little boy because THE THINGS OF GOD ALONG WITH ANY TYPE OF SCIENCE have always gotten ALL MY ATTENTION, I just never shared what I wrote. I used my writings to INSPIRE MYSELF. I guess God got rid of my SELFISH ways and that's why I now blog and share them to encourage you. Sending so many emails all around the world, to those that do not follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and dozens of other social media sites, COST ALOT - but God always provides. A special thanks to Captain INGI of The M.V Carib Queen - www.daretobedifferentskn.com.. When you ride on the M.V Carib Queen, that's one way you support Dare 2 Be Different International - and you didn't even know that right? I DO KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE.
The Prophet Jeremiah was encouraging the Children of God under bondage at the time to HOPE ON. He wanted them to understand that restoration from the Babylonian captivity was coming. He wanted them to know that BETTER DAYS WERE AHEAD. HAPPINESS WAS AROUND THE CORNER and it would follow through to the end of time.
This is also reinforced by the Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 55:12 - For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. SIMPLY SAID, THE MESSAGE OF BETTER DAYS AHEAD FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD was always preached by true servants of GOD.
Let me remind us of something. As a child, when we did something wrong, we were usually punished in someway by our parents / guardians as a WARNING and METHOD to steer us back on the right track.
I know you probably got some unfair lashes in school like me, when the teacher or head teacher decided to beat the entire class for the doings of a few and echoed a very UNFAIR STATEMENT, "Innocent does pay for guilty!" I won't call their names here, but TRUST ME, in another BLOG. Be very careful what you do and say to children and youth while they are small and growing up eh, it'll come RIGHT BACK AROUND TO HAUNT YOU SOMEDAY! You remember that! Forgive that teacher or those teachers still but I know YOU WOULD NEVER FORGET. God is not like that though, but we are NOT GOD and could NEVER BE GOD. We are humans, just depending on GRACE AND MERCY TO MAKE IT THROUGH DAILY.
Every chastisement or pain or pressure like that of JOB that God allows on his covenant people is not designed or allowed to DESTROY them, but rather for their PURIFICATION. He will never give us more than we can bear. God will deliver you from the trial or help you through the difficult time, like he helped me when I was wrongfully incarcerated by The Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas Labour Party Federal Government of St. Kitts - Nevis.
What ever trial or pain or circumstance that you are going through right now friend, note well that at the end of it, YOU ARE GOING TO RISE. God is going to use it as a stepping stone to your INCREASE AND PROSPERITY! FACT!
Since every chastisement which God allows upon his covenant people is designed not for their destruction, but their PURIFICATION, he will certainly deliver them from it, and make it in the end, conducive to their increase and prosperity
Don't get too caught up with the consumerism and reveling this Christmas 2014. Buy what you need, not what what you WANT and to "RUN-RACE" with your neighbour, then January morning you're CRYING HOW THINGS TIGHT! All that is temporary. Remember, THE CHOICE IS STILL YOURS THOUGH TO DO WHAT EVER YOU WANT IN LIFE. Nothing is RIGHT OR NOTHING IS WRONG. Remember that! It's just CHOICE AND CONSEQUENCE.
In my life, if something or someone isn't adding VALUE to my life, I just leave it or leave them alone. I've now learned that the very HARD WAY, as you know by now. REJECT IT OR REJECT THEM IMMEDIATELY for your peace of mind and prosperity sake.
I seek things and people that add value to my spirit. Therefore, if I have your number SAVED in my telephone, you MUST MEAN A GREAT DEAL TO ME and every week I delete numbers eh. For me, LIFE IS MORE THAN TEMPORARY FUN - CHATTING PEOPLE'S BUSINESS - PULLING DOWN OTHERS etc, it's LASTING JOY living in a personal relationship with God and following the example of his son Jesus Christ.
When I am feeling down and depressed, I never go back to all of my FUN AND JOKEY articles that I write to keep you entertained through our Dare 2 Be Different International Drama and Entertainment Division, or my dozens of fun or hard hitting political articles, because they cannot uplift my spirit.
I head back to my BIBLE or to my DEVOTIONALS, because the words written there in the Scriptures are GOD-INSPIRED, LASTING AND INSPIRATIONAL! Only what is done for CHRIST really matters and really lasts. Nothing else! That's a fact!
Friend, don't give up! HAPPINESS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER! Your 2015 WILL NOT BE LIKE YOUR 2014 and all the depressing years before. BETTER IS COMING! That's a Guarantee!
Remember though, that I believe in the LAW OF ATTRACTION. If you worry and complain, you will constantly live in FEAR and stay depressed. If you keep the faith, keep on praying, keep on believing that better days are coming and that ALL YOUR DREAMS will come to pass, THINGS WILL DEFINITELY CHANGE AND BECOME BETTER FOR YOU! Happiness Is Just Around The Corner but it's certainly YOUR CHOICE TO GRASP IT or stay in your trying situation.
As I close global reading friend, focus your mind on this scripture throughout today and for the rest of the year, Psalms 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning
Hope is Ahead!
