Purpose and satisfaction come only from knowing and obeying God.

When we claim one of God’s promises in the Bible, whether it is for peace of mind, courage, or provision of our needs, we place ourselves in His hands and on His schedule. As we wait, it may at times seem as if the Lord has forgotten us. But trust embraces the reality that when we stand on a promise of God, He remains faithful. The assurance is in our hearts, and the timing is in His hands.
I believe that He has a plan to prosper me and not short-change me because i seek Him earnestly.

1 My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding,
3 and if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom,
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds victory in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
9 Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,
from men whose words are perverse,

In order to live a Christ-like life
(by our own nature, it is impossible)
Only by Grace (how?)
He appointed the Twelve
In Order that they might be with Him
(Live with Christ)
Have you wondered why you are not able to live a Christ-like life, it is because we do not make enough effort to Be With Christ everyday of our live.
Placing Him first and foremost in our lives is the key to true prosperity and abundant life.
Father of love, never failing to forgive
Each moment is a gift from You to live
We're only here to tell the world about Your grace
Until the day You take us all away

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
Have you ever wondered why at times (or quite regularly for some), you have this feeling of doing something in vain. Even when you have spent a lot of effort, time and resources doing it. Even when you have achieved that award or medal, you don't feel "accomplished".
I have learnt lately that Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Even when it seems to be a Success in the eyes of the world. Unless He sanctifies it,unless it is in His love and for the extension of His Will and Kingdom, we really labour in vain. None of our achievements can be brought with us when we leave this world. But His loves endures forever...
