How Big Is Your Shield?

Missed last week's service due to mobilisation, but just caught up on it with the online video. Here's what I caught from it...

Faith is active, an action that we must take. And knowing that God's presence is constantly with me, I can walk in victory and have victory over any circumstance in my life because his power is constantly available to me.

Nothing is impossible for me because God is with me, but I must believe and claim His power over any situation.

It matters not how big my faith is, what matters is how big my God is.

According to my faith, will it be done. I have been trusting God for 3 souls. But after hearing this, I realise... Why not trust God for 12? Surely my God is bigger and able to do more than what I can ask or think...

Isn't this really what it means to walk in victory? To live knowing that God is constantly with you, and that in Him, we are empowered to be able to do all things?

I pray that I will see God's hand in my life, to see that the lives of the people around me are touched because I was there, to see them coming to know what a Great God I have.

Bartimaeus

Bartimaeus

"Bartimaeus was a blind man sitting by a road and when he heard that Jesus was passing by, he began to shout "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" And even though those around him asked him to be quiet, he shouted even more." - Mark 10:46-52

Even as I read this, I feel this is what it means to really persevere in prayer till breakthrough comes. A desperate call for God to move.

Bartimaeus didn't feel pai-seh or embarrassed, and stop shouting, even though people scolded him.
And eventually, he did get Jesus attention - v49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him."

As a result of him calling on God persistently, and his belief that Jesus could do miracles; he was healed.

Someone once asked, why Ivan Teh - RunningMan?


Because I like Running... (Though I don't run that often now...)

Because I like Speed... Doing things fast and efficiently, yet still effectively...

Because it reminds me of a cheesy 80s movie...

Because it implies action...

It's been my chosen nickname since 2003.

That's why.
