To be honest, I want to start off this post with excitement, Holy Spirit fire, and with pure joy. God has been truly so good to me these past months. If I have to testify about everything that happen to me in the space of three months, then I would probably turn a blog post in a book. It has been truly something else. I can truly feel in my bones that God is starting to turn around aspects in my life and within Christian lives worldwide. God is starting to stir something in my heart. I am at a point where I want to run run run run run and RUN for Jesus. I have to contain myself a and write about the topic that the Holy Spirit told me to write about for about two weeks now. No reason why I could be full of fire and loving at the same time.
As always, I want to ask. Please subscribe to Life and Faith, it would mean so much to me:
The topic I want to write about is obvious the peace of God as titled in the subject line.
I want to share a quick testimony in this post that I want to share with you that what happened to me this year. Like the most of us, I was in such a bad space. Darkness was around me for 4 months. Anxiety, depression and thoughts of suicide was around me. This was new ground as a Christian as I finished my studies and unemployment was never a thought. Never had to battle with suicidal thoughts as well, but I experienced it like crazy. Being unemployed and virtually “no purpose” from day to day got me. I had such big plans for the year. There was a delay due to circumstances, but even though I knew that the situation was out of my hands, it still got to me, the no-purpose from day to day.
At the end of June I got a wake up call. I realized that if I don’t do something about my mindset then I am truly going to be somewhere where I do not want to be. I had to take what was mine and not let the devil be in control of my life.
That’s the thing about Christianity. Sometimes God give you supernatural peace and sometimes you have to take peace for yourself. And that was me. I had to take what was mine as a Christian.
I am going to share something now (and I probably write a separate post about this one day). And that is, take care what God has placed in your hands. For long, I was focused on aspects that was out my hands, like a job. I can send out my CV, but I can’t control who employs me. I knew this, I know that if God places talents in your hands, you have to take care of it in order for God to multiply it. I had to learn the lesson the hard way (like always) before my focus reverted to the talents in your hands.
You may say, “but Zillen, I have nothing in my hands!!” I thought so too until common knowledge started to become common practice. I learn new habits. Habits like exercising 4 times a week, reading every night. Meditating and reading in the word of God like never before. Praying more and more each day. Praying sincerely. That is what changed my mindset. Focusing on myself and my Spirituality. Focusing on a simple thing like living healthy. That’s what helped me.
God can give you the same peace, if you draw closer to Him. Like the woman who had blood flow problems (Matthew 9:20-22). Her problems were not Spiritual, but still, the lengths that she went to get her healing is something that I want to emulate. Whether yo have lost your job, family or your mind. What lengths are you willing to travel to restore your life, mind and emotions. For me, good habits and drawing mush closer to God than ever before.
If you could ask one thing of you today, don’t give up. Like I said, I can feel in my bones that God is turning the lives of Christians around, worldwide. Breakthrough is coming, don’t you dare give up. Peace will be yours in the name of Jesus.
I would like to mention a verse or two today. The first verse is, Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
The second is 1 Peter 5:7
casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
One person in the entire world can grant you peace that is sustainable, and His name is Jesus. If you have not given your life to Him yet, I would like to give you the opportunity. Or you have grown cold in your relationship with Him, I would like to give you an opportunity to recommit. If you are one of those two people, please say this prayer:
Lord Jesus, I believe in you. I believe You are the Son of God. I believe You died on the cross, I believe You rose from the grave, I believe You are alive. I invite You, to be my Lord and Saviour. I follow You now, until forever. Write my name in the Lambs book of life. Thank you, for dying on the cross for my sins. Amen
If you have said that prayer, please email me (contact form), I would like to hear more about you.
