Obey! Be Blessed!

trust obedience

Learning to obey is critical to our living a victorious life. It does not matter if it makes sense or not. We are to trust God totally for He alone knows what no man knows. He is the only wise God, eternal, immortal, invisible God.

He cares deeply for us, when we hurt, he feels it ‘cos He is within us. He knows all things and at the appropriate time of His choosing, when our obedience is perfect, when we have learnt in the school of life, what no book can teach us, our God will make ALL things perfect. He is already working it out for us, though we cannot see it, only with faith can we perceive. All things are working out for our good regardless of the desire and wish of our adversary.

Gratefulness will earn you blessings that others strive for. Trust and obey He who has the whole world as a stool for His feet. Whoa! What a God we serve, He will not forget your labor of love. His reward is with Him and He will pay us as we deserve here on earth and hereafter.

My God is faithful, dependable, kind, loving, generous, gracious, full of compassion and He is all powerful, seeing, knowing and wise God. He’s got me covered!! Yeah! I am indeed covered, held in the palm of His hands with tender care and mercy. I am indeed highly favored.

And you too friends! Stop striving, rejoice in your lot, be grateful, it could have been worst but God showed mercy. Come on rejoice! Well join me to rejoice and be glad, praise God’s Holy name. He is faithful that promised! Hallelujah, He is able!

Shalom!

Change Your Perspective!!! Love More!

socrates

Friends, do you want to grow in wisdom, peace and joy? Do not let envy, jealousy, and hatred rule your world!

Stop slandering. Learn to love.

You see, what you see in others is a reflection of your soul, inner mind. What you see in others is who you are ‘cos it is said that humans project unto others, that which they most hate about themselves.

Learn to treat everyone with respect and appreciate the honor of having the company of those in and around you.

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. No state is permanent, everything will come to pass one day and then what?

Are you thinking of hereafter? Jesus is coming soon!! For sure! It does not matter if you believe it or not, scriptures are been fulfilled as you are reading this blog. The trumpet will sound soon! Will I hear it, will you?

Jesus is Lord!!!

 

Discerning The Errors of The Heart!

delicaciesFriends, as the Lord prepare a table for us in the presence of our enemies – Psalms 23:5, so does the god of this world prepare vices – the delicacies of this world, unbelief, offence, love of money- self, pride of life, envy, adultery, fornication, slander, gossips, drunkenness, perverse desires, jealousy and so much more before us.

These vices chokes the seed /word of God sown into the field of our lives. This is the reason why it seem the Word is not working as it should in our midst. There has been lukewarmness and revival seems ancient. The body of Christ is bombarded by so much of the world that has crept into our midst. We have become slack in upholding the truth in love. We have become self seeking like babes when we are suppose to be matured bringing heavenly kingdom down on earth.

Unlike our Lord, the devils aim is to subtly deceive us out of our inheritance and cheat us out of eternity. We get distracted by all these vices so much that when we stand before our God, lifting “holy hands”, our hearts are seething with evil. our lips dripping with the blood of our latest victim of slander, so much evil clothed with fine linen on the pew. If only our thoughts can be projected on the screen in our various congregation! God sees all these, we deceive man, thank God we cannot deceive the Holy Spirit.

The Psalmist observation and prayer is “But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. 13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. 14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:12-14. This is the prayer of my heart Lord, help me and my friends in Jesus name.

The antidote is love, not hypocrisy, but genuine Christlike love. God is love and those who live in love lives in God and God lives in them. The essence of our being is engraved in love. Accept the unconditional love of Jesus Christ, let it renew your mind, transform and empower you and I to love, honoring God thereby. If you love you will not slander, commit adultery, steal, lie, kill and commit wicked acts. Come to the Lord today and rededicate your life to serving God in spirit and in truth. He loves you with an everlasting love.

Shalom!!

Is That You? Troubler Of My Life!!!!!!!!!

levelofperception-326x235The irony of life.  1 Kings 18:16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?” 

This is King Ahab speaking to Prophet Elijah. How often that we see our helper, deliver, solace comfort as troublers of our soul.The wicked King that has brought evil upon the Kingdom, calls he whom the Lord has sent with good news – Elijah troubler of Israel!  Who is troubling who?  How often are we blinded by our own wickedness, greed, self righteousness, envy, jealousy, hatred of self and others to see the good God in his mercy has sent to us in whatever form they may come.

God put treasures in earthen vessels, I presume to ensure only the discerning and wise will see, take, and possess with joy. Pearls are not meant for swine! 2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us – KJV. NIV stated it this way,  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Jesus Christ our Lord was said to be possessed by Beelzebul by the religious authority of his time. His family said He was out of his mind. What is that? Good is been spoken of as evil while evil walks the isle with applause and admiration like the new law in my next door neighbors land down south.

Mark 3: 20 Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. 21 When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”23 So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. 27 In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house. 28 Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” 30 He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.”

What good has God brought to you and I, across our part that we have looked upon with disdain? That man, woman, child, brother, sister, business, family, gift, organization etc that we have been brought in contact with just might be the solution to that pressing issue/issues that you have. That issue you have that no one knows about but God. Jesus Christ came to his own to save them, they had been looking forward to his coming but failed to see him as he is,  the Savior.

Have you disdainfully looked upon people and the many blessings of God in your life? Will you seek God’s face in prayer of praise, thanksgiving and forgiveness today. Ask for clarity so your eyes can be open to behold the beauty and glory of God as He want you to see. Ask for a seeing eye to begin to see the treasures in the vessels God placed in and around your life.

May the eyes of our understanding be opened to see clearly depth of insight in your word oh Lord in Jesus name. May our ears be opened to hear clearly your instructions and our hearts be receptive to receive of you Lord. May our spirit be energized to obey and do that which is of your great pleasure in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

 

What Has God Said To You? It will Be Done!!!!!!

God is not a man2 Kings 7:1 Elisha replied, “Hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Lord says: About this time tomorrow, a seah of the finest flour will sell for a shekel and two seahs of barley for a shekel at the gate of Samaria.”

The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if the Lord should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?”

“You will see it with your own eyes,” answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!”

About this time tomorrow!!!!! What would you like the Lord to do in your life, situation, circumstances? What would you like to see happen in your Church, community, city, province, state? What is your expectation?. What do you see manifesting in your life, home, family, career, business, ministry?  Remember that the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut short. The desire of the righteous ends only in good, but the hope of the wicked only in wrath. Proverb 11:23

For this is what the Lord says; You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. This is an easy thing in the eyes of the Lord; he will also deliver Moab (your enemies) into your hands. 2 Kings 3:17

Friends, as you hold unto the promises of God, treat His instructions with utmost urgency. Be prompt in obedience!. 2 Kings 7: 9 ……this is the day of good news and we are keeping it to ourselves. If we wait till daylight, punishment will overtake us. 

Faith Speaks and Receive!!!!!!

faith seesThere is a Queen/King in me/you

I am /you are born to rule

There is a Queen/ King in me/you

I come from royalty

The role of the enemy is to keep me/you from knowing who we are

So be mindful of the words you release

Shades of Oppression!!!!!

trust himThe children of Israel became exceedingly fruitful, multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and this gave the Egyptians concern. These were a nation built with just seventy people and are now too numerous to count. Oh! how Egypt felt threatened and rolled out a plan to limit them, yes, reduce them by killing the male infant, however God was with Israel. Egypt tried, God’s plan prevailed, Moses was spared, Israel continued to increase even more. Exodus chapters 1-3

Friends, oppression of many kind is usually as a result of the potential of the inherent seed of greatness in an individual, family, group, community, nation etc. It is an evil ploy to limit, hinder and ensure an individual does not have room to grow, increase or have the liberty to actualize the full potential of his/hers/its creation. People are often cut beneath and to a size determined by issues, circumstances, situations of life that are within and without ones control. Instability,poor judgement, lack – of any kind, restrictions and the likes hampers development and the attainment of maximum potential inherent in the seed of life within all mortal. Thank God for the dominion mandate! We are more than conqueror through Christ who strengthened us. Romans 8:36-38

Pharaoh ordered every male child to be killed at birth. If he could hinder conception, he would have, or maybe not since he still wanted the female children to be born to serve as slaves and the likes – my thought here. He ordered death, but God outsmart him of course by the help of the kind heart-ed midwives. Pharaoh planned to kill the carrier of seed, to make sure there is none to go to war, none to go on for Abraham to the promised land, none to burn incense unto the Lord, none to worship God. A ploy to wipe out gradually the next generation of God’s people.

This is us even right now. The onslaught in our minds, midst, home, church, society, nation is alarming. Men are confused of what manhood is, women are at a lost and children are worst off. The institution of marriage is gradually collapsing with different streams emerging daily. The gospel is twisted and coated with philosophy of man to be appealing leaving hearts devoid of real joy while masked hearts and faces are on display as the real thing.

Lord be merciful unto us, hear the cry of our hearts, the words we’ve spoken and that which has not been uttered. Send us your Holy Spirit afresh Lord to rekindle a right spirit within us. You heard Israel’s cry, Lord hear our cry and send us help. We need an outpouring of your spirit like never before, let your light guide and guard us, let us not stumble, falter or fall. Keep us always Oh Lord as the apple of your eyes, purge us with hyssop and we will be whiter than snow, let us yet sing for joy. Let there be deliverance, healing, restoration,transformation, let our eyes and heart be enlightened, give us your wisdom, the wisdom of heaven that is not of this world, let our desires be aligned oh Lord with your will and purpose for our lives. Let us not grow weary Lord, let us not go astray, let our eyes be focused on you, the author and finisher of our faith. Let the seed of faith within us grow to maturity that we might please you in every good work, live a victorious life here on earth and dwell with you thereafter for eternity In Christ Jesus name we pray. Amen
