My first QT in Bora was last year during the singles retreat! Most of the singles enjoy QT along the beach, so i also tried! and it’s worth it! Waking up early, looking for an isolated place, sitting in the sand, while hearing the waves of the sea, with a panaromic view of sand, sea and sky, what a perfect setting to enjoy the presence of the Lord!
Last year, God reveals His amazing promises through Proverbs 3, this chapter is full pack of wisdom, God’s promises and a guide of do’s and dont’s to enjoy the blessings of the Lord! Prov 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. On Day 1, along the beach, i go back to this verse and God reminded me how much He has been faithful to me after a year! Indeed, God proven me that He kept His promises, He is faitful and He never change! On day 2, i read my life verse Joshua 1:9, and this day God has two powerful words for me “Be Strong & Courageous!” On day 3, while in bed i remember Jer 33:3, so i read that and this time God reminds me to call on Him and He will tell me great and unsearchable things i do not know and ends my last QT in Bora with Jer 33:11 “Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever.”
Truly God is good, His Love endures forever! He is our everlasting God, so it’s always good to wait upon the Lord!
Everything on earth has its own time and its own season. Ecclesiastes 3:1
Recently, God is dealing with my “patience” which embodied trust, faith & humility… patience with hard waits, trusting God 100%, walking the faith, and fully humbling down before God telling Him that I cannot on my own, so I let go, to YOU, I entrust everything to YOU.
What I have become during this season of preparation & waiting is more significant than where i am going to be… What i have learned and still learning today, the character that is develop within, the humility & meekness of my heart, dependence on Godly wisdom, sufficient grace, victorious mindset, true faith, real joy, peace like a river, reliable confidence, greater purpose and deeper relationship with God — all these are the fruits of waiting patiently for the Lord, and the prize, the great prize will be overwhelming, so great, so amazing, so awesome, that when finally God reward me the prize, all i can say is that “Lord, you are so wonderful, truly amazing” this i cannot have, if this is just me, but this is a gift from YOU, now i have it, because of YOU!!!
