This Thing Could Affect Your Inner Peace (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Isaiah 32:17 The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.

Leah was currently struggling. She felt her daily routine and schedule pressed her. She was busy from dawn to dusk. Leah thought that her tightened schedule started right after the Covid-19 pandemic struck. Her office ordered her to do her job from her home. Besides that, she must tend her home, cook, do the dishes, and accompanying her children doing their homework. Wasn’t end there, she served in her church as well. To make matters worse, weeks after she resigned after her church’s services, she cannot sleep well and her heart found no peace. Almost late she found the answer: it’s not because of her overwhelming schedule she couldn’t find peace, it’s because she had lost her spiritual life.

Sometimes two or more choices are held before our eyes. We are forced to choose one without entirely know how things would turn out. When things turned out to be ugly and unsatisfactory, we regretted our previous choice, followed by anxiousness and losing our peace. Especially when we are not letting God decide it for our wellbeing, our guilt would grow exponentially, followed by disappointments or even blaming Him for our self-inflicted misfortunes.

Our choices could influence our peace. Therefore it’s highly advisable to ask for His guidance and advice, especially if your choice affects your spiritual relationship with Him in the future. Ask Him anything at any time: your career, your future spouse, your study, everything. Let Him take control of our lives, lead it and bring it to a successful and prosperous life. He will always pick the best choice for our lives. But first, build a healthy relationship with God, with Holy Spirit, by continuously following our church’s rhema. When we could maintain our “inner fire” therefore our relationship with God, we could hear Him whispers and hear His voice guiding our every step we take.

REFLECTION

Your DECISION influences your state of PEACE.

APPLICATIONS

1. Why decisions we make could influence your inner peace?
2. Have you ever made a wrong decision? What did you feel?
3. Tell us some concrete plans about applying today’s rhema in your daily routine.

TODAY’S PRAYER

“O good Father, give us Your divine wisdom, and lead our very steps, to make sure our decisions are not us to make but it’s all Yours. With all Your guidance and assistance we may achieve a state of tranquility and peace yet we never achieved before. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

Do Not Focus on The Negative Things (Noon)

RHEMA

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Danielle received a call from her boss. He told her that she was laid off. She was very surprised by the sudden notification. She cried after hanging up the phone and shut herself in the room. Her husband was not working at that time either. She was very worried thinking about how to provide for her family’s needs later. Her mind was filled with negative things.

Unlike Danielle, her husband remained calm. He assured his wife that all would be fine. He started to improve his cooking skills and then sold food online. Danielle supported and helped her husband. God’s blessings began to be poured out, and what Danielle was worried about did not come true. She now realizes that negative thoughts will only make her more desperate and lose God’s blessings. She also learned to always think positively and this turned out to bring joy and peace.

Yes, thinking about negative things will make our spirits dry out over time. We may be in a bad state right now, but don’t let us fill our minds with negative things. We must fill our minds with the good ones, one of which is the Word of God. Think that God has never left us. All these challenges we face, think that it is all the period of preparation to receive a miracle. Remember that God is in control of our lives and not our thoughts. By having the right thoughts, we can stay calm and believe good things will happen. Peace will be given to our hearts and our spirits will be revived.

REFLECTION

DON’T FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. Fill our mind with THE POSITIVE ONES.

APPLICATIONS

1. Have you ever been dwelled in negative thoughts? What is that about?
2. How do you feel when you focus on negative things?
3. How do you shift the focus of your mind to positive ones?

PRAYER

“Jesus, forgive us if we are still focused on the negative things that we experienced. Enable us to think about the right things, O Lord. We believe there is peace in You. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”

How The Holy Spirit Works Limitlessly (Evening)

RHEMA

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.

When we read Isaiah 55: 8-9, we think that God has a different plan from what we have planned. It is like heaven and earth. That’s not wrong. If we pondered it deeper, it is written “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55: 9). The words ‘HIGHER’ indicate that GOD HAS A PLAN THAT IS MUCH BIGGER, bigger than the vision we have planned for our life.

This is what happened to Joseph. He thought, his life was on the right track. He had the vision to be a leader. And in his father’s house, he was also equipped with a lot of knowledge. He could be a leader in his father’s house. But it turned out that GOD HAS A BIGGER PLAN AND VISION. And by His unexpected scenario, Joseph was brought up far beyond human expectations. He became the great ruler over all of Egypt. That is a miracle!

The same thing will happen in our life. Pandemic made us experience setbacks. We must fight to find a way out. We start making plans for our lives. But never forget that what God has planned for our lives is MUCH BIGGER THAN WHAT WE CAN THINK. That’s why we need His guidance more. Don’t give up whatever we are facing. Commit to going to the upper room. Seek His approval, develop a close relationship with God, and do not allow our first love to fade. We will be led through His unexpected ways and we will see His vision and plan that is much bigger than we can think to be fulfilled in our lives. Hallelujah!

REFLECTION

The Holy Spirit can work in DIFFERENT WAYS from what we have in mind because HIS WAYS ARE LIMITLESS.

APPLICATIONS

1. What plans you have made for your future?
2. How do you involve God and ask Him for guidance in each plan that you have made?
3. What differences did you find when you carry out a plan that involves God and that does not?

PRAYER

“Holy Spirit, thank you because You faithfully guides us. We believe that you have a big plan in your life. Teach us to understand Your plan, O Lord, and this is our commitment, that we will walk according to Your guidance. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”

2021 is The Year of The Holy Spirit (Sunday)

RHEMA

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Today we enter the first week of the new year, 2021. God gives our church the theme “The Year of the Holy Spirit.” What is meant by it? The year of the Holy Spirit is a year where we invite the Holy Spirit to work more and take over all aspects of our lives; our family, work, ministry, finances, health, etc. When we let the Holy Spirit take over, there is no limit that the Holy Spirit cannot work for us. Because this year the Holy Spirit will work, dominate take over, and help a lot so that the limited will be turned into unlimited.

That’s why in 2021 we need to open our hearts wide to dare to have a limitless vision. Realize that limited vision will limit the unlimited work of the Holy Spirit. If our vision is small, then this year doesn’t need to be the Year of the Holy Spirit. Why? Because God knows that this is the time we will be used to do things that cannot be done by our human abilities. What we need to do is continue to build an intimate life with the Holy Spirit until we experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit every day.

REFLECTION

Only WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, 2021 will be filled with the GLORY OF GOD.

APPLICATIONS

1. Why do we need to live with the Holy Spirit?
2. What often hinders us from experiencing the fullness of the Holy Spirit?
3. What commitments will you make so that you can continue to live with the Holy Spirit and experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit?

PRAYER

“Lord, we are grateful for the new year. Let us cling more and rely on You in this new year. We believe You will lead us to do things that are beyond our limitations. We believe, when we rely on You, 2021 will be a year filled with great glory because of the mighty work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Thank you, God. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”

HIDUP YANG KOSONG TANPA HADIRAT TUHAN MENGUNDANG KEBURUKAN 7X LIPAT [RESIKA]

BACAAN HARI INI
Matius 12:43-45

RHEMA HARI INI
Matius 12:44-45 Lalu ia berkata: Aku akan kembali ke rumah yang telah kutinggalkan itu. Maka pergilah ia dan mendapati rumah itu kosong, bersih tersapu dan rapi teratur. Lalu ia keluar dan mengajak tujuh roh lain yang lebih jahat dari padanya dan mereka masuk dan berdiam di situ. Maka akhirnya keadaan orang itu lebih buruk dari pada keadaannya semula. Demikian juga akan berlaku atas angkatan yang jahat ini.”

Benny Hinn adalah salah satu pengkhotbah yang paling fenomenal bagi dunia kekristenan, khususnya di kalangan gereja karismatik. Dalam pelayanannya, ia telah mengantar jutaan orang menerima Yesus Kristus dan menyembuhkan banyak orang sakit. Kuasa mujizat kesembuhan yang dimilikinya nyaris seperti Petrus yang bayangannya sanggup menyembuhkan. Sapuan jasnya yang dikibaskan ke arah para jemaat, mampu membuat mereka bertumbangan dengan kepenuhan Roh Kudus atau bahkan sembuh dengan ajaib saat itu juga.

Tapi siapa yang mengira bahwa Benny Hinn yang dianggap sekelas rasul atau nabi, yang pelayanannya memenangkan jutaan jiwa, ternyata di tolak oleh Tuhan Yesus. Saat Benny harus menjalani operasi jantung di tahun 2015, ia bermimpi. Ia menemukan dirinya dalam antrian panjang di pintu gerbang surga. Catatan pastor Benny begitu luarbiasa akan apa yang telah ia kerjakan di bumi, ternyata sama sekali tidak membuat Yesus terpesona. Tatapan-Nya mengisyaratkan bahwa Benny tidak akan berhasil masuk pintu gerbang sorga. Gemetar dan ketakutan, Benny terbangun. Dan Yesus berkata dalam hatinya, “ Jangan sia-siakan waktu ini. Ini adalah kesempatan kedua bagimu.”

Ada begitu banyak orang, termasuk hamba Tuhan yang kehilangan hadirat Tuhan saat mereka mencapai puncak kesuksesannya. Kesombongan dan menganggap diri hebat membuat mereka tidak lagi berkenan di hadapan Tuhan. Kondisi hati mereka seperti rumah yang tersapu bersih dan rapi teratur, namun kosong, ketika mereka kehilangan hadirat Tuhan. Dan inilah kesempatan bagi iblis untuk kembali dan menguasai rumah hati yang kosong tanpa penjagaan. Tak heran orang yang dulunya pernah begitu dekat dengan Tuhan, saat mereka hidup tanpa hadirat Tuhan, keburukannya bisa 7x lipat dibanding keadaan mereka sebelum mengenal Tuhan. Oleh karena itu, jagalah hati kita dengan segala kewaspadaan. Segarkan kembali iman dan kasih kita pada Tuhan dengan tiupan angin Roh Kudus dari Utara. Ingatlah musuh kita tak kenal lelah dan menyerah menanti setiap celah terbuka yang dapat dimasukinya.

RENUNGAN
Hidup TANPA HADIRAT TUHAN adalah hidup yang KOSONG dan mengundang KEBURUKAN 7X LIPAT.

APLIKASI
1. Sudahkah Anda menyadari pentingnya hadirat Tuhan dalam hidup Anda?
2. Apa yang Anda rasakan dan alami ketika hadirat Tuhan meninggalkan kehidupan Anda?
3. Bagaimana cara Anda menjaga agar hidup Anda tidak kosong dan selalu dipenuhi oleh hadirat Tuhan?

DOA UNTUK HARI INI
Bapa terima kasih atas kasih-Mu yang begitu besar bagi kami. Sehingga melalui pengorbanan anak-Mu yang tunggal, Yesus Kristus kami boleh mengalami hadirat-Mu dalam hidup kami. Kami mau menjaga hati kami agar Engkau berkenan tinggal dan memenuhi hati kami. Di dalam nama Tuhan Yesus Kristus kami berdoa. Amin.

SPIRITUAL SUPERFOOD [REMIKA]

BACAAN HARI INI
Ulangan 8:1-20

RHEMA HARI INI
Ulangan 8:3 Jadi Ia merendahkan hatimu, membiarkan engkau lapar dan memberi engkau makan manna, yang tidak kaukenal dan yang juga tidak dikenal oleh nenek moyangmu, untuk membuat engkau mengerti, bahwa manusia hidup bukan dari roti saja, tetapi manusia hidup dari segala yang diucapkan TUHAN.

Sesungguhnya, kalau kita mau menyadari, firman Tuhan adalah sesuatu yang sangat powerful. Firman Tuhan bisa menyembuhkan, firman Tuhan bisa menjadikan yang tidak ada menjadi ada, firman Tuhan bisa membangkitkan yang lemah, firman Tuhan bisa memberikan jalan keluar bagi mereka yang sedang dalam persoalan, firman Tuhan bisa memberikan pengharapan bagi yang putus asa, serta masih banyak lagi kuasa yang terkandung di dalam firman Tuhan.

Masalahnya adalah apakah kita sudah menjadikan firman Tuhan sebagai makanan roh kita sehari-hari? Jangan-jangan firman Tuhan yang luar biasa ini hanya kita abaikan begitu saja dan kita anggap sambil lalu saja. Ingat, kalau kita ingin mengalami hidup yang berkemenangan dan dipenuhi dengan anugerah serta kemuliaan Tuhan, maka firman Tuhan harus menjadi makanan roh kita setiap hari dan terus-menerus.
