Today I declare that I am going to see God's favor in a greater way, that new doors are going to begin to open for me, that super natural opportunities are coming my way, that God is setting up divine connections for me, that I am always at the right place at the right time, that I am going to overcome every obstacle and defeat every enemy, that I am going to see every dream and every desire that God has placed into my heart come to pass.



Today, I dedicate my life to truth, love, peace and happiness. To Non injury through thought, word or deed.

Not Issac But More!

I remember reading very long ago this book about the story of Abraham sacrificing his only son upon God's request.  The book's title was "Not Issac But More", I don't remember all what it said now, I am sure it was about trusting God with our all.. but I never forget the title though.

I prayed for many years what now I see as a routine prayer that "God I put before you my all".. "I am all accessible to you God".. "Use my every being, my finances, my relationship, my family, my home, my work.. nothing is *of no  limit* when it comes to you God".  And I thought I knew what I was saying and what it  implicated.  I did put in the past "on the Alter" many relationships, trips, jobs and stuff I wanted, just like Abraham and I would think, I never withheld something from God, no matter how hard I wanted to be with that person, or go on that trip or do this Job, I did pray.. didn't I, that "God I put it before you in the Alter" Its my precious Issac that I don't consider it to be more precious than you.

But it wasn't the same, was it?!! Because deep down everything I claim to have put in the Alter before God I had a *gut feeling* or at least a suspicion (even if it was just a probability) that it might not be the best thing out there for me!  But Abraham didn't consider his son to be *may be not a good thing for him*; He was a God-given!! He believed and saw it happen in a miraculous way, having him was an Awe to many around him as well.

Today, I see myself in a God-given relationship I am so blessed to have mat me when I find myself being challenged in all those things with irrational forces that is messing with the course of things and putting pressure from all the possible sides.  I find that I am compelled to run for my dear life, to cry out for this to end. "Please God, I know that all those things are from your gifts to me, I tested them before you and I can't for the life in me see why should they be disturbed now.  I want to do something, change this, get out of that disturbing place that keeps generate an awkward energy, quit that job, change those circles, burn those bridges, break off with those deeply disturbed people in my life who mess with my mere existence.
And I sit there at the same time, like a parrot repeating my prayer God I put before you my finances, my marriage, my relationships, my home, my work.. my all!! And I get one of those "Aha" moments, God did take my prayers seriously, he is answering my prayers, He is accessing my life because I gave Him permission too!

Today, I realize that neither my marriage, finances, job, relationships, family or home is *off limits* to you God.  Nothing is a *Red Line* uncross-able to God as I often pray.  I can and probably will always have people, and things who barge into my private life, and test me and challenge me to bring out the compassion, love, patience, tolerance, acceptance, faith and hope out of me. 

Today, I realize that its not those private dear things in my life that are in question, God *doesn't want or need them* and definitely doesn't enjoy making me suffer through them for sport... It is not my Issac being in the Alter that He is after, it is not some old weird "suffering loving" worship kind of thing, that gets off on us putting our offspring through fire to please the gods!; But it is "the endurance produced by the suffering, that produces character and the hope that comes from that" (Romans 5:3) is sole purpose and objective.

Today, I sit in my prayer corner and I enjoy my new learned inline meaning of my words as I say "God I put before you my all" nothing is off limit to you.. use my life, my resources, my circles, my relationships, my love, my talents, my expertise for your glory.


  1. This could definitely be my daily bread. Maybe you can publish it at one time.

    It is so deep and touched me in different ways. It is true that we never had to put our Issac on the alter and I pray that we either never have to do it or have the consuming love and faith that gives us the courage to do it.

    I believe that God doesn't wait for our permission or prayer to have access to us "all." I think it comes with the package, once you say "I Do" ;-)

    Want to meditate on the "hope" bit, how can hope comes of out of suffering or endurance.

    Love you

    Keep writing pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
