Discover Your Praise Life

Australia For Jesus – Awakening – Day 3

God Worshippers and God Questers – this one is for you , from the heart of God

I attended an Awakening Australia session held today at the Marvel Stadium

WOW ! Witnessing the powerful manifestation of the Lord and His wonderous works, miraculous healing, tender uplifting of souls, breakthrough praise, I felt the Lord so close. I felt His warmth, His fire on me that compelled my heart to cry out ‘Lord, break my heart for what breaks yours. Help me to see the world through Your eyes ‘ and Bill Johnson’s prayer ‘ Lord, impart in my heart what you have for my life. I want to heal the sick, cast out demons, break strongholds, restore Hope and love people the way you loved them. Help me to see the world through your eyes. I am in 100% Lord and the Lord reminded me ‘ well, you said you were available too a week back ‘.. I knew deep in my heart something BIG that’s going to cost me is coming my way but I asked the Lord for grace to stand my ground and be obedient

During worship, I had a vision that kept coming back to me and I had to get it out. Hence my post. I used to feel hesitant before to speak out what the Lord laid on my heart but now I come with the authority that He has given me, and without any shame or intimidation I believe this is my calling and stepping out fully into what He has called me to do. To share what He lays on my heart for people to know and work on. No more fear or doubt devil

Here is my vision. I saw a HUGE ship approaching a HUGE ice berg. As we were worshipping and as the praise raised from the hearts of the people, the ship moved forward and started chipping the ice berg , slowly and steadily. I could feel the intensity as the praise rose so did the work of the HUGE ship chipping away the massive ice berg. Australia For Jesus !! The captain of the ship Jesus has set into action , commissioning His people to rescue the lost and restore Hope to the fallen. The ice berg could be anything in your life, depression, brokenness, sickness, anxiety, relational issues, abuse, trauma, you name it BUT take heart Jesus the captain of the ship has built His ship with your throne of praise and prayer, which is also your weapon to battle those fears that are raging in your heart and trying to tear you down. Keep your staff held high, just like Moses did. In your praise lies your breakthrough.

Psalm 45:2

You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever

What happened tonight ?? David summarised it long time back. God-Worshippers co-partnering with God and chipping away what steals His people’s joy and chipping away whatever tries to tag them for things of the world in the form of distraction and temptation for futile things. It’s a kingdom partnership deal.

Psalm 22

Shout Hallelujah, you God-worshipers;

give glory, you sons of Jacob;

adore him, you daughters of Israel.

He has never let you down,

never looked the other way

when you were being kicked around.

He has never wandered off to do his own thing;

he has been right there, listening.

25-26

Here in this great gathering for worship

I have discovered this praise-life.

And I’ll do what I promised right here

in front of the God-worshipers.

Down-and-outers sit at God’s table

and eat their fill.

Everyone on the hunt for God

is here, praising him.

“Live it up, from head to toe.

Don’t ever quit!”

27-28

From the four corners of the earth

people are coming to their senses,

are running back to God.

Long-lost families

are falling on their faces before him.

God has taken charge;

from now on he has the last word.

29

All the power-mongers are before him

—worshiping!

All the poor and powerless, too

—worshiping!

Along with those who never got it together

—worshiping!

30-31

Our children and their children

will get in on this

As the word is passed along

from parent to child.

Babies not yet conceived

will hear the good news—

that God does what he says.

So here is your declaration for the battle ahead and the strength for the victory that has already been achieved through Jesus. Discover your very own praise life

I believe that God has marked Australia as His own. The challenge now is to keep up the pursuit of God and a clean heart to inherit all that He has for us. And it starts with each individual willingly obeying the call of God on their lives, without comparison to one another, but with authority, identity and full acceptance of WHOSE they belong. We are all parts of ONE body and need to work together without jealousy or competition as we ALL work towards one common goal, save souls from perishing

24

1-2 God claims Earth and everything in it,

God claims World and all who live on it.

He built it on Ocean foundations,

laid it out on River girders.

3-4

Who can climb Mount God?

Who can scale the holy north-face?

Only the clean-handed,

only the pure-hearted;

Men who won’t cheat,

women who won’t seduce.

5-6

God is at their side;

with God’s help they make it.

This, Jacob, is what happens

to God-seekers, God-questers.

My prayer for you tonight is

Psalm 27

14

I’m sure now I’ll (you will ) see God’s goodness

in the exuberant earth.

Stay with God!

Take heart. Don’t quit.

I’ll say it again:

Stay with God.

Stay blessed

In Jesus Name

Amen

When CHOICE Matters

Experiencing a burnt out moment right now ? At some stage all of us go through that phase in our lives. Let’s check what the Word of God has to say about burnt outs and the best solution to tackle those gloomy moments

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Says Jesus

Matthew 11:28-30

The Good Shepherd -Psalm 23

 

 

A declaration for your life when everything seems STILL and you wonder where your future is heading !! I seem to reflect on this Psalm countless times whenever fear tries to grip my heart and EVERY single time I rise with Hope from God that He is a good shepherd and He will NEVER let me down. His goodness and mercy will follow me and my family all the days of my life.

 

Declare this Psalm over your life. When songs of praise and declarations begin, the enemy doesn’t have a foothold on any circumstance or stronghold on any burden that is weighing your heart down. The victory is already His.

 

The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.

    I always have more than enough

He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love

His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss

That’s where he restores and revives my life.

    He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness

 so that I can bring honor to his name

Lord, even when your path takes me through

    the valley of deepest darkness,

    fear will never conquer me, for you already have!

    You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.

    Your authority is my strength and my peace.

    The comfort of your love takes away my fear.

    I’ll never be lonely, for you are near

You become my delicious feast

    even when my enemies dare to fight.

    You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit

You give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows

So why would I fear the future?

    For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life.

   Then afterward, when my life is through,

   I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!

Let GO and Let BE

It was a busy Tuesday morning in our household. As usual I got ready for work and Hannah for her daycare. As we hurried to the car, Hannah sat in her car seat and I started to buckle her up to ensure she is safe during the drive

A typical near 5 year old, my daughter was wriggling and complaining that the seat belt was too tight while I was STILL trying to buckle her. She was being so impatient telling me that I was hurting her while all I was trying to do was to buckle her up to ensure her safety. Hannah said ‘Stop it Momma, you are hurting me ‘.

By this time, I stopped doing what I was doing and looked into her eyes and said ‘ Hannah, Mommy is not finished yet . If you just stay still and not move, I can quickly do what I am supposed to do, to buckle you to keep you safe while we drive’ . With that, Hannah stopped moving and within minutes ‘click’ , she was all buckled up and we were set for our drive

The Holy Spirit said something to me and I could not stop smiling at myself the whole drive. He said ‘Sindu, can you see yourself in Hannah’s actions today ?’

The Word of God says that He has the best plans in store for us and all His plans are to prosper us and not harm us.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

And not only He has the plans for us , He is also faithful to complete what He started for our lives . Sometimes a stern voice like I said to my child, is what He does to grab our attention to what He is trying to tell us

He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it

Philippians 1:6

As our Heavenly Father, His concern for us is our safety as we navigate through the abundant life He has given us. Out of His unconditional love for us , throughout the journey, He corrects, He disciplines, He guides and He leads the way for His children. As mere humans, our concern is always about our comfort. The moment we are taken off our comfort zone, even if it is for a short period of time, naturally then comes the whinging, complaining, ‘Why God Why?’ ‘Why Me?’ questions and ultimately doubt and uncertainty in the presence and very existence of God

Today God wants to tell you this. ‘My dear child, will you LET GO off your control over your life and LET ME BE God over your life ? I am not finished with you yet. So don’t draw your judgement line yet based on your circumstances or feelings , as the best is yet to come. Trust me to take you through this , Believe me for your healing , Hold onto me for your provision and see if I will not make a way for you in your wilderness. I parted the Red Sea for my children, I am the same yesterday and today and my love for you STILL stands the same. You are the apple of my eye and I have engraved you on the palm of my Hand. I knew you from your mothers womb and you are so very precious to me. Take me into your life once again and you will never have to be alone or do this alone . Come to me my precious one, I am not finished with you yet so don’t bring to an end the dreams and desires I have laid on your heart ‘

31 So, what does all this mean? If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us?

32 For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all,[a] he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give…

35 Who could ever separate us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations,dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love…

37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!

Romans 8

God wants to remind you of His promise ‘ Be still and Know that I am your God’. There might be giant like circumstances roaring around you or situations trying to scare you , God wants to tell you today that you are more than a conqueror and you have victory in Jesus already. Believe it, Claim it and Live it !

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for speaking to me. I lay my burdens and my hearts longings at your feet. I let go off my life control and surrender my life to you. I ask you to take control. Lord, I believe there is nothing impossible with you and I ask for your intervention in my life situation right now and I speak your power over my life. I speak your life over my life. Thank you for your Word

In Jesus Name

Amen

A Beautiful Reminder

This is a beautiful note that was sent to me by my amazing friend at my previous workplace. It literally sets the tone for my day reminding me of God’s love for me and that nothing, absolutely nothing that’s happening in my life is far from the reach of His hands. I then start my day with a smile, determined to be the very best for the day.

Today marks exactly 1 year since I quit my most loved, very secure job of 7 years in a health sector , to embark on an uncertain journey determined to improve work-life balance just so I can spend some quality time with my daughter. Long commute to the city really didn’t contribute to the work life balance I was looking for. I wanted a change but was afraid to step out of the comfort zone. What if I don’t end up getting a job ? Fear gripped my heart and became an obstacle to put my trust in God to action

Funny enough, most of my conversations and tantrums with God happens in the rest room. So here I am arguing why He should give me the job I so badly want in my life and listing my reasons on why God should consider my request . ‘I know you love me but please love me the way I want you to love me ‘ – trying to convince God at my best

I heard a gentle voice when I stopped my ranting ‘ Ok, I will bless you but what action are you taking for your prayers to get answered ?’ God reminded me that without faith it’s impossible to please a God

Faith without action is dead

James 2:17

God’s Word stirred my faith and set it into action. I started my uncertain journey with a prayer and took a massive leap of faith. I quit my job without another job on hand. As per the world’s standards it’s regarded foolishness, but for me it was listening to what God told me to do mattered the most.

That was a real faith check for me in my life. Am I trusting God enough to let go of my ONLY source of income , just because He said so ? I wouldn’t say I was full of faith like Abraham and just DID it, but I could honestly say that it was a journey for me, a journey of preparing my heart to listen to His Word and a journey of reminding myself that God would never fail when things didn’t go well after I quit the job. It was definitely not a bed of roses but the transition journey and the lessons learnt along the way was well worth it, as I experienced God as my sole provider.

When I look back at the last year, it certainly had its own awesome ups and terrible lows, but today my heart is filled with gratitude for the journey I boldly stepped into trusting only God .. I believe that God not only blessed me with a job I prayed for but also sent some beautiful friends along the way as a bonus.

So today I want to pass on this beautiful note that inspired me to be my best everyday and to keep my SMILE ON irrespective of the circumstance as it’s a beautiful reminder that GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS, not my time or your time, but in HIS time and it will be the perfect timing for your life !

He has made everything beautiful in His time

Ecclesiastes 3:11

Take heart ❤️ ! Whatever stage your prayer is from being answered, today is a gentle reminder that God has not forgotten you. Every drop of your tear is bottled and kept track of by Him. In His time He will repay back all that the locusts have eaten . God is never too early nor never too late. His timing is just perfect.

Dear God,

I pray today that as I wait on the answers to my prayers, help me to keep walking unwavered in my faith , be strong and confident trusting in You. I pray against doubt and fear in the name of Jesus . I intentionally choose trust over doubt, faith over insecurity and strength over weakness as Your word says that I am more than a conqueror in You and He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world

In Jesus Name I ask and Pray

Amen

Stay Blessed in Him💞

Lent – Day 8 – Let Him BREW your life

brew

As I was driving today and praying about the devotion tonight, I had the word BREW pop in my mind.  By the time I drove back home, I knew exactly what tonight’s post will be about ! I absolutely love the way God speaks words into my heart !

I am a big fan of a freshly brewed coffee. Just enough for me to refresh my tired mind and boost my day ahead. Or should I say that is what gets me out of bed everyday morning.

To brew a classic cup of coffee, one needs to master a few fundamentals to perfect the technique. According to an article published by the National Coffee Association How to Brew a Coffee, you first need to get the brewing essentials right like the equipment, the beans, freshness, the grind, the water, coffee-water ratio, water temperature and most importantly the brewing time, which is an important flavour factor.

For a coffee to reach its perfect flavour and colour, it needed to be left to brew. It has to go through a series of defined processes, for the desired outcome. Research proves that if a coffee is over- extracted ( the brew time is too long ) or under – extracted ( the brew is too short ) , the very essence of coffee is lost

When God destined our lives on this earth, He set up a ‘brewing ‘ stage for each of our lives. Everyone’s ‘brewing ‘ stage totally different and uniquely varying to everyone else’s. Those ‘brewing’ stages include stages of yearning for God, learning about God and growing in God. Those ‘brewing’ stages set us up developmentally in what God has planned for our lives. Those’ brewing’ stages teach us the virtue of patience and the importance of waiting in His presence. Those ‘brewing’ stages bring us one step closer to God and bring us a revelation of who God really is

Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. Psalm 139:16

The ‘brewing’ stage of God in Joseph’s life setup him for a greater purpose that God destined for his life. Joseph did not allow the length of his ‘brewing’ stage tamper with his God’s love for Him and his God given dreams. He was steadfast in God’s faithfulness to him and persevered trusting in His grace and mercy. And eventually Joseph’s ‘brewing’ stage came to an end, with a sweet aroma of God’s goodness and unfailing plans being proclaimed to the ends of the earth.
20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. Gen 50:20
You might be going through a ‘brewing’ stage in your life, where things are super slow and situations seem impossible. My encouragement for you today is to HANG ON to that ‘brewing’ stage that God has placed in your life right now,  for at the end of it is your BREAKTHROUGH. Make sure you add the right ingredients during that stage, Word of God and fellowship with God for your life to be a sweet aroma to the Lord.
Let your life BREW in Him , with the Hope and Blessed Assurance that He will work all things for good
28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28
My Prayer for you is as you wait for Him and on Him patiently as He BREWS your life, May every promise of God you are clinging onto speak life into your situation. May He bring breakthrough in your situation like you have never seen before. May He reveal to you the depths of His unconditional love for you
In Jesus Name
Amen
Stay Blessed in Him

 

 

 

 

LENT – DAY 2 – PATHWAY TO JESUS

pathway

Born into a traditional hindu family, I have always tried to get close to the various hindu dieties doing numerous pooja’s and keeping up with the rigorous rituals. I always tried to please the hindu dieties with many sacrifices and believed in the concept of rebirth and karma, which is a concept of one’s belief that past beneficial effects are derived from past beneficial actions and harmful effects from past harmful actions. In my search for God, I got caught up with the so many rituals that I performed so well religiously but still lacked something. I had no knowledge of the various hindu dieties I worshipped, I don’t even know them and instead of reverence for them I had fear gripping my heart that if I do something wrong those dieties will punish me. I lacked a fellowship, a real relationship with those dieties. I felt empty inside

Then I heard about Jesus. Firstly I could not even believe that Jesus was God born as man and took my place on the Cross so I could live an eternal life. I had my heart filled with questions ‘ I don’t even know Jesus so why will He die for me ? ‘ , ‘ If He is God why could He just not save me ?’ , ‘ Why should He die ?’ ‘ Is this a myth or a real happening ?’ As a young teenager my heart tried to reason out every possible thing and make sense to my logical mind

At that time, one of my friends gave me a Bible to read which turned out to be a  Book of Life for me.

As I began reading, learning and pondering on the words in the Bible, John 3:31  became true in my life.

 If you continue in My words, you truly are My disciples

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”…John 3:31-32

I had an encounter with Jesus through His Word. I realised that God loves me so much that He chose to die for me, while I was a sinner. He did the same for you too. Such is His unconditional love for everyone in this world.

Romans 5:7-9

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

God’s love for us is unconditional, unbeatable and uncomparable.

Isaiah 53: 4-5

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering,

yet we considered Him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted.

5But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;

the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

All of us in our lives have gone through a search season where we are trying to find answers for something in our lives. This lent season I encourage you to discover your pathway to Jesus. No matter your journey, new believer , non-believer or a believer for years, there is always treasures to be found in the kingdom of God. The treasure is discoverable only when you are on the right track towards your destination

My pathway to Jesus has ended with a life that I own that is not worried about anything. A life that I can live trusting my God as I know He provides, He cares and He protects. Through this journey I am a proud owner of God’s peace that surpasses all understanding amongst many chaotic situations of life. You can have it too, if you choose the pathway that leads to Jesus

With that comes the blessed assurance of Hope, in the midst of despair and chaos

2 Corinthians 4:8-12 Amplified Bible (AMP)

8 We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair; hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone]; struck down, but never destroyed; 10 always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown in our body. 11 For we who live are constantly [experiencing the threat of] being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced in our mortal body [which is subject to death]. 12 So physical death is [actively] at work in us, but [spiritual] life [is actively at work] in you.

Dear Jesus ,

As I embark on my journey, make yourself known to me. Help me to grasp an understanding of who You really are. As I reflect on your love and ways, lead me to the pathway of life

In Jesus Name

Amen

Stay Blessed

LoveCareShare – Christmas Mission

Hey Friends,

I am super excited to be initiating something like this, for the very first time in my life.

I choose to call this a LOVECARESHARE MISSION – When we LOVE ENOUGH, we CARE ENOUGH to SHARE ENOUGH

Christmas is Jesus birthday. A day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and rejoice that we have Hope for our futures. 2 days back when I was reflecting on this, I felt that God showed me this picture ‘Of me crazily running around to make my daughter’s 4th birthday as special as it can be for her. Of me trying to make note of every single thing that she liked and loved. Of me getting all those things that made her happy’. That moment I asked God ‘What would you like for Christmas Jesus? What will make you happy?’ Instantly I had this on my mind ‘Love, Compassion towards my people ‘ and I have set to action what I believe God called me to do this season, very specifically

Please click on the link below to share the passion on my

heart and support / encourage me through this journey 😊
