When i was young i wanted to be a fighter pilot. But as i grew older my expectations and mindset changed so i gave it up. I always believed we should never underestimate dreams. A simple yet powerful idea can impact and shake the entire world. However, i understood now why do dreams get unfulfilled. Sometimes we feel we are nowhere near fulfilling that dream we have in our hearts, let me reveal to you what God has taught me about making dreams come true.

You will find in bookstores books under the self help section that tells you a method, a secret or a technique that if you put in enough effort and never give up and perservere till the end you are guaranteed a dream come true. Now, let me reveal to you what God has taught me instead. Hidden in the bible are treasures of wisdom and knowledge. The bible is a book full of treasures, those who dig deep are the ones who wants to seek the beauty of the Lord and to behold His loveliness.

One word from God can change your life, one revelation from Him can give you the breakthrough you need. Spending time with Him is so satisfying to my innerman. My days become so full and abundant. God even adds to you length of days and long life when you prioritize His word. In every book we see Jesus in the bible. All that we need in this life are found in this amazing book. The scriptures are God breathed. The word of God says that God is a God who exceeds our expectation. He always hears us and gives us all things. Not only that He always over answer and over supply us. He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

Let me share with you a story. Once there was a very wealthy prince in the middle east. He wanted to learn how to play golf. So he invited a world renowned golf player to his golf club to teach him golf. They had a wonderful time and the prince was very pleased. So the prince asked, “what can i do for you in return for your kindness in accepting my invitation to teaching me how to play golf?” At first he politely rejected because it was his honor and there’s no need to repay his kindness. But the prince insisted. So in the end he said, “well if you insist maybe i just want a golf club, just one will do”. The prince said, “very well you will get a golf club as a gift from me”. So the golf player waited and wondered how would his golf club looked like? Maybe it will be encrusted with diamonds or maybe it would be made of gold? 3 months have passed but he hasn’t heard from the prince. Finally he received a letter from the prince.

He opened the letter, it says i would like to thank you so much for teaching me how to play golf this is my gift to you as promised, a brand new golf club completely owned by you, where you can play golf anytime it has the latest facilities.The golf player was shocked, he asked for a golf club but the prince gave him an entire place with all the facilities where he can play golf anytime. His own golf club under his name! That my friend is how our heavenly father is like. He always over exceeds our request. Your dreams are too small for God. No dream is too big for God. He always give us much much better and bigger than what we could imagine or think. God loves to surprise us. Just like how fathers surprise their children on their birthday. He loves it when we open our present and our face brims with gladness and joy because what we got is better than what we expected.

First, you need to ask God. Stop complaining about what you don’t have and what you are jealous of when you have a big God with an inexhaustible supply, simply ASK! Second, dream big(God will still exceed that no matter how big you think your dream is). Third, believe it has already been done, that it has already been accomplished. See the end result, God’s way is you believe it first then you will see it. Jesus paid the price at the cross for all the blessings and favor for our lives, a divine exchange took place about 2000 years ago, because of His great love for you He gave you His only Son, heaven’s best for you. It wasn’t an angel who died for us, it was the son of God. He took all He didn’t deserve upon Himself, all the punishment for our sins that offended a holy God, all the judgement that was meant for us fell upon Jesus. We receive freely by faith what we didn’t deserve, all of God’s goodness, blessings, provision, favor. In case you don’t understand why would God be so good to give you something so precious when you did nothing to deserve it, it’s His love and grace towards you my friend, He went to the cross for you and suffered a gruesome death for you, all because of His great love for you. Lastly, thank him for all the things in life that you already have, no matter how small they may be. Have a gratitude attitude. Whatever it is just thank him, trust that He is always a good God and has been good to you. No matter what you are facing always thank Him. When you are going through a trial for your mistakes, thank him. Always justify God and blame ourselves. He loves you even when you fail. He will never give up on you and His everlasting love for you is unconditional. I want to take this opportunity for readers that have felt the love of God and experienced for the first time the presence of God while you are reading this. I have a special word from the Lord for you, whoever you are you feel like you are about to give up hope because you failed in life. God wants to restore to you all that you have lost. He wants to embrace you and kiss you, He doesn’t remember whatever you have done wrong in the past, He wants to give you sonship and adopt you to be the child of the most high. I would like to invite you to say this short prayer with me.

Dear heavenly father, i thank you Lord for sending your one and only son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins, I believe He rose again on the third day, Jesus is my Lord and savior. I am now your child, highly favored, greatly blessed and deeply loved by you. In Jesus name, amen.

If you prayed this prayer you are now a child of God and Jesus is now your Lord and your savior and God is your heavenly father. I recommend as a new christian you start with some resources that will help you in your walk with God. A few good preachers and pastors are Joseph prince from new creation church in Singapore and Joel osteen from lakewood church Texas, America. They preach messages that unveils Jesus’ perfection and beauty. Most of all they preach the finished work and grace filled messages that points to Jesus. You can do a google search on these two names they come as highly recommended as i have been personally impacted by their ministry and they have been a tremendous help to me and my walk with God. You can purchase their resources from their website or you can go to youtube to view the resources for free.

Now unto him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20

Birthdays

The story of a boy called kot…

Let’s talk about my birthday, i was born on the 19th of july 1992. On this special day this prodigy child named korakot low was born. I don’t deny the fact that i am a genius, you are who you think you are, if that’s not the best reason, then i am sorry i wouldn’t be loving myself and appreciating God for what He did to create me. I always knew i was different from the average kid. I feel alienated and out of place, trying to fit in but could never fit. Many stories to share but let’s skip that, it’s too personal. Life wasn’t a bed of roses, although i was born with a silver spoon, my family fell apart when i was 3 and i was forced to migrate to sunny island singapore to stay with my grandparents and aunt. I had a very very murderously bad temper due to the fact i was left enstranged without my parents and here to stay with people i barely know, my aunt and even my younger brother was at my mercy sometimes when something triggers my pain. I remembered reciting my first children’s english book at the age of 4. Although i came here only knowing thai. I mastered basic english and chinese in one year’s time, all that by singapore’s brilliant education system still the ability to learn and grasp complexity at such a frightening rate, the normal family members would be freaked out. My family all knew this kid wasn’t your ordinary grandson. Soon he was drawing and courting a blonde at the local nusery. Which explains my charms and my exotic tastebuds, i go for rare things in life. He also rides a bike and roller bladed at 7. All by himself. No one taught him, only him his survival instincts and strong independance together with the guidance of my precious yeye that took me to east coast park, what He taught me was simple, using science, steady yourself by walking on rough gravel first, once i mastered that i started blading like i was born to do it. My grandpa was a consultant at NUS, he didn’t graduate with a phd, in the 60s to get there you needed brains and help from above. I am also a natural born leader, brave, adventurous and creative boy at such a delicate age. Which is why today i am in love with this special boy called Noah. I didn’t see all this in the past to tell you the truth, i was in a prison of hopelessness, God open the eyes of my heart and gave me back memories i never remembered my entire life, suddenly memories of my childhood comes flooding back while i reminesce, this is how Jesus healed my emotions and personality, He is the good shepherd that restores my soul. I became a believer of Jesus, got born-again, at secondary 2, i was studying at geylang methodist secondary. Wheel-chaired my grandma to a crusade at singapore indoor stadium and got her saved by a preaching of a great man of God called reinhard bonnke, he was one of my heroes, next is pastor prince.  Just me and God. No, actually it was just God. I give all the glory to God. No one told me how special i was, i just thought i was weird and ‘different’. Until one day it dawned on me, the great potential that was latent inside my very core took great grace and love to unlock and a high level of godly confidence of course. Let the real gem shine. The raw piece of rock, with a beautiful precious gem hidden inside, that everyone thought was just a rock, known only by certain people with a keen sense of seeing what’s inside that rock, to mention a few, my aunt, my dad, my mum and maybe some of my teachers. But the greatest gem hunter was Jesus. He was chasing me and finding me, since the day i was born till now, I was on his mind. Today, i am a successful, confident, handsome and happy young man ready to knock down the giants of my life. Hallelujah. This is my short story of my life thus far. I hope you enjoyed reading it. 🙂 Thank you.

Just be yourself

What does being yourself really means. You are not your own person, you were created. Find out why our identity is found in Christ.

You probably heard it a million times. The phrase ‘just be yourself’ is a modern day cliche. Why then are there still so many unhappy people in the world? The fact is most people today are being moulded and compressed to meet the society’s expectation. Many are still chasing after what they think will make them happy, money, fame, accolades, success and the ideal body. It is not wrong to improve yourself or to achieve better results but the question lies with if your motive to you doing what you are currently doing is right.

People who are truly happy and satisfied with life finds their satisfaction and fulfillment from within. We as humans have a hole in our hearts that nothing in this world can fill except for the one who created this hole, God. You are never meant to go through life with only horizontal relationships without acknowledging God as your savior and to have a vertical relationship with Him.

You can have plenty of money and still be poor and unhappy. You can have the body most people would admire and still want a body somebody else have and still be unsatisfied. Don’t be on a constant treadmill of getting validation from people, the only validation you need and already have is to know how perfect you already are because you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. You are loved by God and He sees you perfect, blameless and righteous.

I dabbled into some dating materials written by dating experts on how to have a more successful dating life out of curiosity and honestly emptiness. The book taught me how the brain works and how i should take advantage of the chemistry behind the psychology of our human brains. When i use certain words and phrases it triggers a part of our brain called the reptilian brain, the point of saying these ‘magical lines’ is to cause a massive intrigue on my target. When that happens, they will do whatever it takes to satisfy that intrigue.

Sure it might work and make girls or guys go gaga over you, but wouldn’t i be trusting more in human efforts and human wisdom and understanding more than the favor of God. The fact that i am God’s beloved and highly favored means i already have that x factor about me, i naturally already am attractive, believing otherwise would mean i am not counting on God’s favor and thus putting myself at a disadvantage to other guys.

My experience with experimenting on the dating advice was really uncomfortable, instead of putting me in a position of control or power as it claims, on the contrary, it makes me feel more insecure about who i am. I start to question my own attractiveness and my worth. There was nothing wrong with me to begin with, i didn’t need people to do what i want and control their reactions, a successful dating life doesn’t mean more women or men in your life, it means that your date would eventually end up as your life partner. As for me, if a life partner wasn’t what i was looking for, why waste my time on dating?

I don’t want wasted years on being a master at dating. I want a family. As far as i am concern, 5 years from now, i want to have a family, not be a professional player having plenty of women but never settling down. God is going to bring the right girl to me and He knows the most suitable and eligible candidates out there, i rather trust in Him. There’s only one me. I don’t need whoever i go out on a date with to like me. I don’t need a secret formula, i just need to have that success with just that one girl i eventually would marry.

The book’s selling point is that you can make any man or women fall in love with you by using a secret trick. It thrives on the fact that customers would love to be an object of desire, to be chased by your dream guy or girl, to be someone people get hooked to like drugs. So the question is does all that makes me truly happy? I will again be looking for things on the outside to validate me.

When in fact i should turn to God who truly satisfies me and accepts me, in fact, i already am the object of desire by the perfect man. His name is Jesus. I am complete and He loves me just the way i am. The more i know that the more the real me can shine, the more what is authentic and what is uniquely beautiful about me i can give to this world and the more lives i will touch. God’s way are simple, but don’t let the simplicity fool you, His ways are the best.
