The latest buzz around the religious or non religious as the case may be was the 800 London bus advertisement of the Atheist/Freethinkers movement as seen here stating "There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy life." When I've watched the video of how it started, it was from reading some scripture verses posted in a website about "Jesus died for our sin and about hell. "They were encouraged to to do the same thing and presented their view in a way that will surely be noticed. It did. And many reacted negatively about it. Through this, Christianity needs to beef up its own presentation of the Scripture and study to defend its belief. Let it awaken us to the fact that there are many movement out to defeat Christianity at its core. By inserting "probably" at the middle of "There is no God" provokes any reader with something to think about. This is a good way to spark a healthy debate if we will focus on the probability of God's existence. Although as the Atheist/Freethinker is concern, the probability is at the lowest percentage. Nonetheless, let us use it to evaluate our own belief as well. Would anyone out there accept the challenge of proving in the highest probability that there is God?

Watch below what they say:

Time flies by so quickly. January is almost over in a few days. And this is the reality of life: that no one could be able to stop time from passing by whatever we might try to do. Doing nothing or doing many things does not matter when time is concern. It is constant. What should we do must be to make the most of every opportunity we have when we are given time. It comes to us fresh daily and we must plan to make the most of it. That's why, a decision must be made for its wise use. C'mon, let time be your greatest asset not liability. It was given to know that we are mere mortals. Whether we are ready or not, a time is coming when "our time is up!" Will you be ready then to face eternity?

Are you aware that every action and decision you make today contributes to your future history? If not, then begin to act and decide accordingly for future generations to remember you by. Although you may or may not become known worldwide yet the most important place of history is your family. How would your family remember you during reunions and special gatherings? Let me share a story to illustrate this point: “The children of a well-to-do family decided to give their father a book containing their family's history for a birthday present. They commissioned a professional biographer to write the book, carefully cautioning him about the family's "black sheep"--their Uncle George had been executed in the electric chair for murder, and they felt that it would be best if the biographer left Uncle George out of the book. "No need to do that," said the biographer. "I can report the situation in such a way that there will be no embarrassment to your father or to you. I'll merely write that Uncle George occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution. He was attached to his position by the strongest ties, and his death came as a real shock."

How would a biographer write about your life? Would he have to disguise the truth? What do you think people might say about you after you die? Answering questions like these will help you recognize and evaluate the kind of life you're living right now. Life is too short to be wasted in frivolous things that do not quantify quality contributions to a wholesome life. One may say that life should be enjoyed to the fullest. That’s very true! But at what point of your life will you consider making serious and meaningful contribution to maximize your existence. Each individual must begin to see their purpose and fulfill it with utmost significance and unreserved devotion.

There is a time of reckoning and the Bible teaches us that when you die, there's nothing else you can do to get ready to meet God as Hebrews 9:27 states, “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” (NIV) This will be the place and time to know the significance of every action done and it won't matter what people write about you or say about you to make you look good (or look better than you actually were). An Italian proverb states, “Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back into the same box.” God knows all about you, and you will be judged by him at the appointed time.

Thus, the measurement of one’s task and ability must not be compared with others. When we do, we will sure to experience frustration and disappointment. Do not even try compete with others. We have only ourselves to compete with. If you want to guarantee success, adopt godly principles to achieve what we desire to do and intend to become. God’s word is filled with instructions to guide us in accomplishing our destiny and to reach our full potential. On the other hand, the world’s principles are too selfish leaning towards self-satisfaction. Consider Jesus when He chose to follow His Father’s will; assumed human nature to become the Savior of humanity. And even after more than 2000 years He is followed by more than a billion people in the planet today. Think about this for a moment, Jesus did not even write a single book but books have been written about Him. He fully obeyed God’s will in His life and fulfilled His destiny. Somebody said, “Destiny is determined not by chances but by choices.”

Begin to evaluate your situation right now and consider your next move. Whoever you are now is an opportunity to make the choices that will last an eternity. King David of Israel was described in Acts 13:36 like this, "For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed.” (NIV) Will you serve God’s purpose in this life you have now, for this generation and the next?

One thing is always sure when serving the Lord Jesus is the presence of unexpected things. No matter how hard you try to plan, there will be things that will come your way. The most important thing is to allow God's will to take precedence over all aspects of your life. Then you will be free from stress in doing so. The reason being is the constant struggle that we have in order to win over God's plan in our life. Things become difficult when we do. The moment you have decided to place your life in God's hands, just allow Him room to do His will. It is a choice that we need to make as we call Him Lord and Master of our life. Belief is an opportunity to see God at work. It is giving Him the ability to do what we believe Him to do. Thus, the level of faith you have in Him will be the level of revelation that we will see of Him. He does not go beyond. Consequently, the more you give is the same measurement of what you receive. I have decided to follow Jesus not blindly but with a deep sense of reality based on God's word and the overwhelming evidence of God's creation all around me. It is a sure evidence locked with God's imprint. I cannot live my life based on chance. Would you?

Let me see....there is a sense of excitement that I feel for this year 2009. It is the "Year of Overflow" and I believe that it is so! This is the great thing about seeing with the eyes of faith what God has promised to do for those who believe Him. It is the ability to see things as God sees it. The world's principle is this: to see is to believe; but when you believe in God's word and His principles, you have already seen it! The Psalmist even declared it in Psalms 34:8b, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." The spiritual sense of taste is quickened that provides the tickle of excitement towards the future. I am just waiting for the manifestation in the physical what I've seen alreay in the spiritual. Keep declaring your overflow daily and see what will happen next. Just be ready!!!!!

This New Year brings new things in all aspects. One of which is the start of the JIL Canada National Day of Prayer and Fasting every Friday. To which we have started it from 6pm Thursday until 6pm Friday. Altogether, it was great because I know that I was part of the network from across JIL Canada that made this appointment. That itself provided me an inspiration to become excited about it. It went well for me though I do not know about the others. Prayer and fasting is a spiritual discipline first and foremost. It is to connect to God through abstinence for a certain period of time from physical food. But the main benefit of it is to restrict your physical appetite to allow the spiritual appetite to be stirred to pray, worship and read God's word. This is necessary to retain our focus in our spiritual life. However, there are many who do this on a regular basis even for an extended period of time. JIL Canada has declared that this is the "Year of Overflow" and we need to fill ourselves with spiritual things through prayer and fasting for manifestations of overflow to occur. Nothing overflows with an empty cup! Keep being filled with God's things and you will sure to overflow to others around you and with you. Begin to make an decision to seek and you will find. Get started now!!!!
