Kakampi Mo Ang Batas

“…Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord…” –Psalm 118:26
There are truly people in our midst who display nobility in their objective to share inspirational messages. Their desire to enable as many men and women to carry proven principles in their hearts and minds looks to provide others with success and prosperity; it also gives them profound peace and the strength to handle life’s challenges.
One of these people is Louie Cesar, my fraternity brother at the University of the Philippines Diliman (UP-Diliman). While struggling as a student, he was widely famous for his bravery and savagery during rumbles with other UP fraternities – his battles were always to the death, no matter how many surrounded him.
I don’t know exactly know what happened to him while he was at UP but, to my amazement, his viciousness and ferocity appears to have vanished as he is now a worker and preacher of God.
At the moment, a large part of his ministry tirelessly sends messages that are pro-God, pro-people, and pro-country.
‘Believe in what you are praying for’
Here are some of the messages Cesar has sent me, which I am sure what also benefit many others: “If we live with God’s will always in mind, then believe in what you are praying for. If God has placed a burden and desire in your heart, then you must not fear for God is with you. There will be obstacles and opposition along the way, but in the end, God’s will always prevail.”
Last Saturday, March 10, his message said: “We all have problems to solve, burdens to carry. He who says he has none is either deranged, deluded, or detached from reality… Let us pray that God will increase our patience and faith going through the trials, and strengthen our resolve to carry the burdens with much love and wisdom. Have a blessed weekend!”
‘God is in our past, in our present, and in our future’
Last Friday’s message read: ““Unexpected circumstances, troubles and tragedy can change our plans and our life in an instant. But fret and fear not for God in in our tears, trials, and troubles. He is in our joy and sadness. He is in our affliction and temptation. He is in our past, present and future. And his promises never fail.”
The previous day, his message read: “One of the enigmas of life is the fact that there are righteous men who die young in their righteousness, while there are wicked men who live longer in their wickedness. Though God’s ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts, we can always trust in His infinite love and wisdom. Shalom!”
And the day before that, the message conveyed: “We can’t change people. We can’t save and bring them to heaven. Only God can do that. But we can always choose to be kind, understanding, compassionate, considerate, caring and forgiving to them, especially to those who are dear and close to us. These are the things we can do. Have a blessed day!”
