Try to Follow the God’s Law
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130 NIV,
It is better for me to say that in these words:
Entrance of Your words gives light
gives to unsuspecting the reason.
Here the word “entrance, unfolding” means for me delight, delight of the God’s word. The verse before is saying how the testimonies of God are wonderful
129 Your statutes are wonderful;
therefore I obey them.
It is wonderful how those old prayers and psalms see the law. They see God’s might and they see Jesus’ majesty in obeying the commands. That is because when you are trying to follow those commands, the God shows himself to the prayer or psalmist follower of law.
That cannot happen when you try to follow the world laws.

Stop Talking and Go to Work
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22 NIV
I am doing almost the best I can. James 1:22 NIV
I agreed to go on the cross and Jesus gave me happiness.
I am almost constantly prepared to react when I see that I have to go on the mountain of Golgotha. Sometimes I forget that and than I jump and try to put all the things in order in case that I would go up there.
Sometimes, much often, I see I am already on that mountain.
People say they will think about the word of Jesus when they get old or when they do this or that the first. No, the first is to agree to go up right now. Can you do that in your mind? Can you leave your child, your job, your partner and everything and do what Jesus says, follow Him?
If you read the Bible it means that Jesus is calling you, that He is knocking on the door of your heart. Open it, open your unconscious mind and be aware that there is no future any more like you thought because Golgotha is the future. In one place Jesus says that you will get the life if you lose it. If you are following Him, you already know that.
That is my experience I am prepared to die for the Christ’s thing and when I surrender to the Jesus’ word He gives life, real wonderful life. If I feel that I am restless and that something went wrong it is the time to go to confess the sins. After that I have my life back. I have my peace and happiness and I have an inspiration to glorify God and to speak for Him to the people. I have nothing better to do. Just have to do what He is saying and I get everything I cannot even imagine.
If I would have to do the impossible thing or to die hard, I will still be scared, but Apostles were singing when they went to die for Jesus. I believe that Jesus would make me feel right whatever I would have to do.
Often it is much simpler to follow Jesus and to do what He says. You just do not lie. Try not to lie and you will convert and you will get the brand new life, the life with Jesus on the cross.

There is Only One Good Thing in Human
If we are not good, only Father on heavens is good, how can we do good deeds? We do not know what is good we only have to have an honest intention to glorify God. Nothing else helps. We cannot say that we know what is good and make a good thing without faith and praying Jesus who really makes good things through us.
If it is not so, we are the hypocrites or becoming atheists. Some say that you cannot speak about God anything positive, but you can only say what God is not. They say so because God is too big and is not reachable to man. I cannot believe such nonsense. All about man is connection with God and speaking with the Lord, never mind He is so big, He also is the smallest thing in the world, He is everything, He can be anybody.
Therefore, we have to be very careful not to be liars, we cannot repent because we are not good, we can only confess the sins and the rest of us is Holly Spirit who lead us in our faith and still we are not good. Do not say yourself that you made a good thing all alone if you do not thank God for that.
How can we say that something is good? We cannot if we do not see in faith that we are doing what we are call to do from the Lord. Therefore, we cannot judge anything, even the killer or politicians. We have to judge a sin and we have to criticize social structures, institutions, ideas, ideologies; we cannot say that somebody is like this or like that, that he is bad, we only can say that his work or deed may be hurt somebody if we see so.
The only good thing about man is that Jesus loves him so He is dying for him on the cross.

GREAT IRONIC VERSE
Verse of the Day
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14,16 NIV
Once you are a believer, everybody see that and look at your deeds.
You need not to think of it, even to do anything on purpose like every day job, but people see you as a light that cannot stop to shine. Very often people became aware that you were the man of Christ, when you gone.
Some Christians are shy they do not want to speak because they told them that the faith is private matter, but that is not in the faith that need to make a communion and to say everybody that the Savior is present. You cannot hide the Savior whose light is you, you cannot hide yourself anywhere.
You can be paranoiac and very ill person, but if you are believer you are shining. You can be a big sinner, but you are still shining. Whatever you do your light of the Savior tells to everybody who the Savior is and what He is doing right now with this world.
This verse is not only a good and polite advice it can be a court of your conscience because if you are believer, you cannot hide anything from people and that sounds scary; but if you believe Christ, you do not want to hide anything. 2013-07-30 Tuesday 6:56
Here what made my day
Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation. According to their nature, each was having a good time. Suddenly, a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island.
The announcement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats were quickly repaired and commissioned for duty.
Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as the clouds darkened, Love realised it was time to leave. Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love looked around with hope.
Just then Prosperity passed by in a luxurious boat. Love shouted, “Prosperity, could you please take me in your boat?”
“No,” replied Prosperity, “my boat is full of precious possessions, gold and silver. There is no place for you.”
A little later Vanity came by in a beautiful boat…

The Core of the Faith
13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life
7 by faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family
8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going
Today, in the Year of faith, it is good to contemplate what the Catholic faith is. It is easy to see that is not the faith you have when you enter the bus, believing that you will arrive somewhere because so many people and buses reached their target.
This Biblical faith does not know any case that probably is very reasonable to start something like to take the bus because it is very possible that it will succeed or reach the target. So it says the verse of the day
Hebrews 11:1 -New International Version (NIV)
Faith in Action – 1 now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see
In faith, you can start to look at the world with the different eyes we say that we are looking with the eyes of the heart. What it really means? The heart is the core of the person. It is invisible, only in some person’s work we can see his or her core. With that invisible core we can see the other person and the world and we can see invisible things like is the invisible target that we will search. That we know because the invisible Almighty is showing us. The Lord Jesus is showing us that it is the most reasonable thing exactly that what He is showing. That is security and logical and simple understanding that is obvious and straightforward.
Hebrews 11:3 3 by faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible

Blessing for the Beginner
Why don’t we read the Bible more than we do?
We do not need to read the Bible more and more if we do not feel like that. There is a kind of a game, open the Bible any where, open any page you find and catch yourself how do you look in just one word or part of the verse or sentence. It is for you and you only. If you do not see any sense in the word that you noticed the first, at the first glance, that means that you have to find a connection between you and those words. God is speaking to you, but you are not open to Him. The connections exist and it is, again, only for you and for nobody else. That sentence is you. In most cases is very interesting to make the brain exercise. You have a task to find the logical connection between any part of you and that verse you found. If you do not find a connection, you will for sure remember the words you found and they will appear in future and you will remember and know what the connection it had with you.
Well, I beg you, Lord, give me my word in the name of Christ, your beloved Son.
New International Version (NIV)
3 For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,
and my blessing on your descendants.
This is the one of the most beautiful blessing of Israel, and Israel is you, you are the God’s People. The fact is that you thirst for God, but you get the powerful and nice blessing. Do not ever forget to say thank you, Jesus. 2013-07-24 Wednesday 13:22
