I ask and God answers

He Prepares Your Path

Today's Scripture

I will go before you and make the crooked places straight…” (Isaiah 45:2 NKJV)

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

Do you ever feel like every time you try to move forward in something, you hit a roadblock? Something happens that throws you off course. Be encouraged today because right now in your life, God is going before you. He’s preparing a way. He’s making your crooked places straight. He’s making your rough places smooth. You may be going through a difficult time right now, but it’s not the end. It’s only the beginning. God has equipped you for this journey. You may feel like you’re in a dry season, but don’t look at your circumstances. Look at the promise of God today! If you’ll keep speaking words of faith, God promises that He’ll anoint your head with oil and your cup will run over. That means you’ll be refreshed and anointed to do what He’s called you to do. God is preparing your path and equipping you for the journey. What do you need today to keep moving forward? Start by checking your attitude. Don’t go around complaining and focused on the negative side of things. Put on an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. Thank Him for making your crooked places straight! As you do, you’ll move forward in joy and gladness in the blessed future He has prepared for you!

A Prayer for Today

Lord in heaven, thank You for Your goodness in my life. Thank You for preparing the path for my life and making my crooked places straight. Thank You for restoring my soul and life and for guiding me in everything I do. I submit every area of my life to You today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Indonesian movie is risen!
You might not find this at yet this short movie, titled 'Aku Perempuan' (I am woman) has won an award recently. Thus, it is really worth watching.

Enjoy this following story!

A man wakes up home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.

He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him,all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees it is in perfect order. So's the rest of the house.

He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table :
Breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping.
Love you.

He goes to the kitchen.
Sure enough, a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper await him.

His son is also at the table, eating.
The man asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 a.m., drunk and delirious. You broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you walked into the door."

Confused, the man asks, "So, why is everything in order and also clean, with breakfast on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh that ! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off you shouted,

You have USD 86,400 in your acount

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with USD 86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day; allows you to keep no cash balance; every night deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do with such an account Draw out every penny, of course!!!

Every one of us has such a 'bank'. Its name is TIME. Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.

Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the records of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against tomorrow. You must live in the present -on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!

The clock is running. Make the most of today!!!

My motto is actually this "time is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to God"

Trust Needed


If you hear this word, what do you associate it with? Or what do you directly think, if you hear or read the word ‘trust’?

Trusting ain’t easy. I agree. I have to learn for some years to FULLY trust my boyfriend, no matter where we are and how we are (bad mood, in the fighting mood, or in a good mood).

Trusting someone visible is difficult. So, I believe, trusting someone (or something) invisible would be even more difficult. How about trusting God?

I always fail to FULLY trust him. There has always been so many excuses NOT to trust Him; from “what if,..” question to “He doesn’t answer my prayer” statement.

Yesterday, during Sunday service, Daniel Alexander, the speaker, uttered something meaningful. “If you learn to trust God, God will entrust you with something big, too.”

I have never known that our relationship with God is mutual.

He, then, uttered a question “do you think that God ever lies to you?” The next question is “do you think it is possible that God would lie to you?” And the answer to both the questions is a big NO.

So, why is it so hard to trust Him? It was Daniel’s last question.

I felt very embarrassed in front of Daniel Alexander, also in front of God. Recently, I have failed to trust God; I refused to trust Him because it was a too-good-to-be-true request I asked from Him. In the end, He truly fulfilled His promise. It came true!

Oops, sorry, God! :(

This morning, a very nice article has advised me, titled "A bigger frying pan", about dreaming big and trusting our BIG GOD. Enjoy,…


A Bigger Frying Pan

Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn't.

Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back.

The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan."

Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, big dreams, big jobs, and big opportunities that God gives us. Our faith is too small.

We laugh at that fisherman who didn't figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan; yet how ready are we to increase the size of our faith?

Whether it's a problem or a possibility, God will never give you anything bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk into anything God brings our way. (source: Yahoogroups - English)
