His Trophy

My Valuable Daughter,

I know many people will define you by what you have conquered in your own competencies. Yet there is so much more to you than what’s on a piece of paper or engraved on a trophy. In fact, none of your trophies will enter heaven with you. Only what has been accomplished for My Kingdom can be kept for all eternity. Think about this, My beloved: What good are the praises of people if you accomplish nothing for Me while you are walking the earth? I have already conquered death for you; now I am asking you, in My strength, to accomplish great faith works that display My Majesty. These acts define the difference between a mediocre life and a miraculous life lived for Me. To become great in My Kingdom, you must live the rest of your days for an audience of one . . . Me.

Love,
The one who applauds your faith

Yet I dare not boast about anything except what Christ has done through me, bringing the Gentiles to God by my message and by the way I worked among them. –
Romans 15:18

Treasure of Truth

You are so much more than what you have accomplished.

:’) So true!!!! I have experienced the Holy Spirit in a whole new way this season! He has been so amazing! He honestly shows so much love to not just me, but others through me! I am extremely blessed that He uses me as a vessel of His love not just at home but literally everywhere I go. I know I am writing this here and “He applauds my faith” doesn’t count right now, but when I’m not on this account, the victories I have are between me and God – and I know He is watching me and seeing the obedience! Many times, what he says doesn’t make sense but when we follow His instructions things work out so well and others get bless along with yourself  ^_^

    So beautiful to see your heart affixed on God! I think praises from God are worth so much more than praises from the entire mankind. It’s a wonderful feeling when God let us know that He is pleased with our obedience and faithfulness.

    Isn’t it awesome to be His vessel of love, sharing love with others? It’s definitely a big responsibility but of course ultimately rewarding and at times fun =)

    I agree “at times fun” because sometime when Holy Spirit gives you a message for someone on the bus, or as your are walking down the street and the Lord asks you to tell them this message because they need it – sometime it can definitely challenge us to test our obedience to Him. Our surrender! It is mostly fun though, the challenge is like exciting yet we can’t settle for a mediocre life – we need to live a super life to Jesus !!! 😀 And yes, Praises from God are worth so much more than praises from man, God gives us amazing eternal blessings and in all this to Him be all the glory cause nothing we know is cause we know but cause He knew before we did – ^_^ Yay! 😀

    Any cool story in particular? (About giving a message to a someone) I think it takes courage to give a message to someone, at least for slightly shy person like me! Praise God for giving you the strength and courage =)

      Okay, I shall share one recently – I was on the bus home from church and suddenly I began to speak in tongues and the Holy Spirit told me the man in front of me was struggling with depression and the Lord told me yo pray for him and so I asked his friend if he spoke English and she said yes, and then he allowed me to pray for him and the Lord told me to cast out depression in His name but it was His power and then other stuff I don’t remember and then instantly he threw away his cigarette and said he quit smoking right then and there. That was definitely the Holy Spirit and His power and love pouring out
