Aloha Saints, Family and Friends,   Beloved of God and me,   John 3:16


Today’s Scripture    (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
“…I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well…”  (Psalm 139:14, NIV)

Be Amazing
Life will try to make you feel as though you’re anything but amazing. Disappointments, betrayals, and rejection will try to steal your sense of value. You may feel ordinary, but because of your Maker, there’s something about you that makes you extremely valuable. You’re an original. You can’t get any more prestigious than that. If you’re going to recognize your value, you have to see yourself as amazing, as wonderful. It’s not because of who you are, but because of who made you. You have the fingerprints of God all over you.

All through the day, you need to remind yourself, “I am amazing. I am a masterpiece. I have been wonderfully made.” Don’t discount what God has created. Don’t go around feeling ordinary when in fact, you’re extraordinary. People may try to make you feel average. Are you going to believe what people say about you, or believe what God says about you and move up to the next level?

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You made me fearfully and wonderfully in a way that is amazing. Thank You that I am wonderful because I belong to You. I believe that nothing can hold me back from becoming the masterpiece that You created me to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Comments:
Really like this observation both for myself and then to also be reminded that we must use the same consideration for every other soul on planet earth, regardless of shape, form, color or creed.   That making judgment calls on other people is not up to us at all.  That is for God to do.   I am commanded to love them, I am commanded to even love those who hate and try to misuse me and to be good to them.  Like cherry blossoms and snow flakes we are all different and at the same time even though even look alike, we are unique.  Even twins have minor differences.  Each of us is an original.

So I am born into this world as a unique child of Adam including  his bent for pride and rebellion. This is due to the fact that Adam used his free will in rebellion against God.   And when he did he died inside to the Spirit of God.  He then lost his eternal state and became temporal and Adam’s generations were as we are now.  But right away God set in place HIS plan for redemption.  He clothed Adam and Eve with the skins of Alabamian and He set in motion the sacrifice of the lamb looking to the time that Jesus would come as the lamb of God.  So in Adam all Died, But in Christ Jesus all may live.  Christ Jesus in HIS resurrection restored the breath of life, the HOLY SPIRIT that had been lost due to the pride and rebellion of Adam.  This could be done due to HIS obedience to Father God.  So if we in humility come to Jesus as LORD and heart obey HIM then there is LIFE and LIFE ETERNAL restored to us as per GOD”s original design.  So we truly are Fearfully and Wonderfully made to potentially become in the very Image and Likeness of God.  We can exercise our freewill for life.

However, very few of us really want to become obedient and we even try to change God’s Word to accommodate our Pride and Rebellion.   First off we try to be saved and forget about the LORD part.   We want a get out of HELL free card that we can put under our side of the game board and the go ahead and play the game of life as we want to.  There are the Big Ten (Commandments) and the Seven Deadly that we mostly simple ignore.  Becoming a Christian as a True Child of God means to come under obedience to GOD…  You are only playing mind games if you seek to make Jesus your Savior but not your LORD.  Jesus taught on this, “Why call me LORD, LORD and do not the things that I say?”  And “ He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that love me.      I am the LORD thy God,      No other gods before me,  No graven images or likenesses,  Not take the LORD’s name in vain,   Remember the sabbath day,   Honor thy father and thy mother,  Thou shalt not kill,  Thou shalt not commit adultery,   Thou shalt not steal,  Thou shalt not bear false witness,  Thou shalt not covet. + 7  deadly Sins, So take a look and this is just the Old Testament, Jesus added a lot more commandments in the New Testament.  And of course if you don’t know it is wrong you will be still be held accountable anyway for not wanting to know.   To take the Lord’s name in vain it is more like telling folks that God said something that He did not tell them to say.  I hear so-called Christians say, “God said this and that, all the time.” that does not come to pass.  A stoning affiance in the Old Testament.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
