Whatever you give, He multiplies

Whatever you give to God, He multiplies.

God always gives you more than you need, more than you anticipate, more than you can imagine. He took what the boy gave Him. He broke it, he blessed it, and He used it. That’s what God does in your life. The hard part is the breaking part. But when God takes you and breaks you, He will then bless you. He’ll bless you, and use you to bless others.

If Jesus can feed five thousand people with two loaves of bread and five fish, He can certainly multiply the little you have right now to be more than enough.

Beauty

01.-2

A SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN & PERFORMED BY ISAAC WIMBERLEY

 

I have spent a large majority of my life looking at paintings

Moments of time and segments of the universe captured on different shapes and sizes of canvas
I become mesmerized by the subtle stroke of the brush
The way the artist so delicately depicts areas and aspects to scale
To the point that my heart feels a sudden rush
As if I could reach my hand out and touch every last detail
As if this was a dream
Caught up in the scene
I find my heart slipping further and further into love

This is a story of my bent
I prefer shadows

“The Word”

A Spoken Word written & performed by Isaac Wimberley

01.
If there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them.

You see my brain has not yet reached the point
Where it could form a thought that could
Adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs – have not yet developed the ability to
Release a breath with enough agility to
Breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice – You see my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits,
That it’s hard to even send the praise up
You see – if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them

My God
His Grace is remarkable, Mercies are innumerable,
Strength is impenetrable
He is honourable, accountable, favourable
He’s UNSEARCHABLE yet knowable
INDEFINABLE yet approachable
INDESCRIBABLE yet personal

He is beyond comprehension, Further than imagination
Constant through generations, King of every nation
But if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And in trying to capture the one true God
Using my vocabulary would never do
But I use words as an expression
An expression of worship – to A SAVIOR
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise
So I use words (SELAH)

My heart EXTOLS the Lord, blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has – bound them both together
He has DEFEATED me in my rebellion
CONQUERED me in my sin
He has WELCOMED me into His presence
Completely invited me in

He has made Himself the object of my sight
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night
But if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them.

But what I DO HAVE is: GOOD NEWS
For my God knew that man-made words – would never do
The words are just tools – that we use to point to the Truth
So He sent His Son Jesus Christ as – THE Word
LIVING PROOF

He is the image of the Invisible God
The FIRST BORN of all Creation
For by Him all things were created
Giving nothingness – FORMATION
And by His Word He sustains in the POWER of His name
For He is before all things – And over all things He reigns
HOLY is His name!

So PRAISE HIM for His life (SELAH)
The way he persevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the – PERFECT SACRIFICE

PRAISE HIM for His death (SELAH)
That He willingly stood in our place,
That He lovingly endured the grave
That He BATTLED our Enemy
And on the THIRD DAY ROSE in victory (SELAH)

He is everything that was promised
Praise Him as the Risen King, Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us
And we will finally be – united with our Saviour for eternity
ETERNITY (SELAH)

So it’s not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to The Word
And The Word has a name:
HOPE has a name!
JOY has a name!
PEACE has a name!
LOVE has a name!
And that name is JESUS CHRIST!

PRAISE. HIS NAME. FOREVER!

Commitment

We are constantly being pulled in multiple directions.

Minsan in times of unproductivity, doon tayo nare-remind ni Lord na, wala tayo kung wala Siya. Our lives should start and end with Jesus as our priority. Without Christ, ministry is fruitless.

Commitment to God is giving your life to God without reservation. No turning back. No giving up! God will not give up on you hangga’t hindi Niya nakukuha uli yong puso mo, hangga’t hindi Niya nakikita yong kinabukasan mo, hangga’t hindi ka bumabalik sa lumikha sa’yo.

We may have failures in the past, broken dreams, hurts but God wants to restore us and wanted us to start a new and a fresh beginning. 

It’s time to rekindle your passion for God.

It’s time to reaffirm our commitment to the Lord.

Kung si Lord may pangako sa atin, alalahanin din natin yong pangako natin sa Kanya. Ibalik ang init ng pagmamahal natin kay Lord. 

Balik tayo sa kung saan tayo tinawag ni Lord. Go back to where you’ve started, and start again in a much better way.
