Steadfast Love! Daily Renewed!

I was having small talk with a dear brother last night. We touched many topics and dwelt more on the joy of the Lord. I then proceeded to talk about the experiences I have been having that I needed more understanding about. You see friends, regardless of what was on my mind when I go to sleep at night, I seem to wake up with joy. I might have had issue that kept me up at night or bothered me before falling asleep and so on,  however when I wake up, it’s like the spirit of joy comes in, for whatever reason, right on the bed, I feel joy, even while I haven’t even said good morning to my Savior. I’ve asked myself, why am I joyful in the midst of some …. you get me?

PrintThe revelation I caught yesterday was that, as the Sun rises daily, it brings the dawn of a new day, new idea, insight, fresh burst of joy – ha ha! That is it, I said. It never did occur to me that way. That the Lord brings me fresh flow of joy, peace and love each day the moment He wakes me up to a brand new day! Isn’t that something? As long as it is called today, the Lord gives us opportunity to begin afresh, renew our strength and be reinvigorated to be all that we are meant to be.

So also as we end this year of God’s visitation, and embark on another, the year of the manifestation of God’s presence like never before, let us set aside every self made limitations, generational limiting factors, every form of bondage and hindrances. Let all belief of impossibility end with 2016 as 2017 rolls in with fresh burst of joy, peace, love, new ideas, new insight, courage, confidence, trust, unity, understanding, faith in The Word and much more.

psalm-13-32-sunset-god-who-arms-me-with-strength-and-mkes-way-perfectLay aside friends, all those issues of the past and get ready for the Lord as He unfolds His wonderful, excellent, beautiful and lofty plans for you and yours this new year. You will give birth to your dreams, your ideas shall take up wings, your land shall be fruitful this new year, abundance of all that pertains to life and godliness will locate you this year, you will mount up with wings as eagle, Oh how strong you will stand, your voice shall ring out with authority and the foreigners shall hear, tremble and come out of their hidden places, you shall speak and it shall come to pass, everything shall fall for you in pleasant places, as you thread down to ashes opposition, accusation, condemnation and every form of limitations.

The glory of the Lord is risen upon you friends, as the Sun rises up daily so shall fresh oil run down your head as you dwell in God’s presence. Make the feet of Christ Jesus your abode and experience what your minds is yet to comprehend.

Welcome dear one to 2017!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

Seek Mercy! Repent!

Please note that the Lord is slow to anger and He will not always judge us as we deserve. He tempers judgment with mercy, however do not take this mercy for granted! 

Quit walking on the path of destruction! Repent today! For go evil and seek after righteousness! Seek the Lord while He may be found! 


Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Choose To Live!To Love! Choose Jesus!

Philippians 1:15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, 19 for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. 20 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body,whether by life or by death.

c0b2e262-3d1b-4a9a-98a2-d30d3cc39923Judge 16:28 Then Samson prayed to the Lord,“Sovereign Lord, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.” 29 Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other, 30 Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.

Paul was a disciple of Christ Jesus and lived fulfilling the purpose for which he was saved. So can be said of Samson from all account except that he chose to end his usefulness and God obliged him. What do you mean you might be asking. Well, let us look at the life of Paul and Samson. There is no real correlation here. Paul, previously Saul was far from the Lord Jesus. He was persecuting the body of believers, having been recruited by Satan. On the other hand Samson was born to be God’s battleaxe with which to crush the Philistines to bits. The council in heaven must have been disappointed looking at the events in Samson’s life. His choices of women and the desires that plagued him.

Why would heaven choose such a man as he? Samson was anointed invitro just like John the baptist was according to Luke 1:13 But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid,Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John. 14 He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, 15 for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink,and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born.

Why then did Samson end the way he did? He could have asked God to restore his sight as his strength were been restored. He could have choosing to live and execute more assault on the Philistines to wipe them off totally, yet he chose to die the day he died. He relinquish his will to live and God accepted his request, unlike Paul who chose to live in line with the will of heaven to fulfill all the tasks that has been earmarked for him.

So where am I going with this analysis, albeit short as it is? It is to let you know friends that you, as anointed of the Lord, does have a choice as to what you would allow in your life. Gone are the days of ignorance when buffeted from every side with that which the Lord has given us power over. We can choose to live a fulfilled life in Christ, living everyday to please him, body, soul, and spirit. We can choose to live in the face of all the sickness, diseases, fear, failure and all sort that wants to cripple us.

Choose to live today! Refuse to be relegated to the realm of the dead. Live fully consciously with purpose. Let the enemy know you are not giving up just yet! You ain’t done doing what you were created for. Your voice need to be heard in the uttermost part of the earth. You still need to give birth to those dreams, ideas, business, and inventions. God is releasing some anointed babies invitro and your womb must carry such, so get ready, do not give up now!! That alliance that will glorify God in form of union in marriage is been arranged, do not settle for less. Be expectant! Be excited! Be conscious!

Choose to live consciously on purpose to please the Lord. No matter what comes your way, you have a choice as to your action, reaction, and perspective. See with the eyes of the gospel, look for God in all you do. What benefit is all this to the kingdom of God should be a question that should be answered in the affirmative.

Choose life! Choose love! Choose Christ Jesus today! He makes all things beautiful

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Merry Christmas!!! He’s Alive!

The Lord Jesus is the reason for the season.  God made flesh and dwells amongst us. He died that I might live, that you may live and have abundant life.

Today is not about the gift given and received. It’s about the generous gift of life given to humanity. Salvation for all who believe and will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Believe it or not friends, many will receive all the gift on thier list and yet will not be satisfied and joyous.  Some will not receive so much and many will receive none altogether. Note that the greatest gift of all is that which is freely given to all, as many as will receive him – Christ Jesus!


Let us not put our focus on that which perishes but on the gift of salvation given by the birth and death of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus came to save us from impending eternal death. He lives today, sitting at the right hand of the Most High advocating for us.

Will you yield your heart today? Ask the Lord Jesus in. He loves you dearly! Merry Christmas to y’all! Love and kisses to you all😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘 to the infinity!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Foundation! Living Right-Old Age!

Psalms 92:12  The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; 13 planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

1 Chronicles 29:28 “He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth and honor. His son Solomon succeeded him as king.” This is referring to David. The Lord promised His anointed long life as many verses of the scripture states.

I have, in the nature of my work met with tonnes of people, from different demography. The group of people that have made the greatest impression on me are the Seniors/aged. I met a 90 years old young man today. Yes! You heard right. This gentleman walked towards me with a smile and we clicked right there. In the brevity of time spent I learnt, I mean, what I already knew was reiterated and it struck a chord with me.

You see friends, God, many time over in the scriptures promised us long life. I doubt if we even believe this with all our hearts. We pray for it, especially the female species, but do we really believe it is ours for the taking? Believing this will enable us to live circumspectly.

Well, what I learnt from this gentle man and another 83 years old lady was to avoid been around negative and toxic individuals for they seem to be able to suck life out of every situation, live simply, have a positive attitude seeing good in every situation, smile more often, and please do not forget the God factor. Like the gentleman said, putting a smile on your face is already been on a right track. Be kind to everyone along your path. Live a happy life on purpose, have a sense of humor – laugh at yourself, stop looking in your rear view! Face forward with optimism.

God I believe is aligning us to his purpose this season. The platform/foundation the Lord has given us – our salvation, what are we building on it? Are you living right? Do you let every wind knock you down? Your mistakes, if ever there was any such, considering that God works in us. Let leave this for another day! Are you content and satisfied where you are at this scene of your walk of faith? How healthy would you want to be at, say, 70 years, 80, and 90? What are you building on your foundation? Reexamine your ways and make necessary correction. It is not late, this is the appointed hour.

Luke 6: 43 46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

Obey the Lord! Love others as yourself, keeping your garment unstained by acts of wickedness. Let go of negativity, begin to see differently and begin to radiate God’s glory. Teach us to number our days Oh Lord that we might gain a heart of wisdom – Psalms 90:12.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Praise Ye The Lord!!

The Lord has done awesome things for you and I friends. The love of God has washed away all our filth. His mercy reached down and brought us up to stand by grace before Him. He sat us up in the heavenly places above principalities and powers, above all works of Satan.

The Lord has been good to us, washing us with the blood of Jesus and pouring His love on us, filling us up with joy in the Holy Ghost. Why will you not praise Him? Let your voice be heard to the uttermost friends!! The Lord listens to you there!! That’s right! He has set up a stage to make manifest His power, grace, mercy and love through you. Can you not see? The Lord delight in you!!! Yes, you, and you!!!

Father thank you for all you have done and are doing. As this realization dawns on us may we begin to manifest that which is of your pleasure as your Spirit quickens us. Lord Jesus, work in us to will and to act in order to fulfill your great pleasure in and through us. May your praise never cease from our lips in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Love Conquers All Ills!!!

Luke 6:27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

img_20161219_074243Friends, do you want to be loved? Then love another, give love! Love in this context is the agape kind of love, the love of Jehovah. You want to be understood, then understand another. You need a friend, be a friend! Do you want to shine like the stars of heaven? Then do not attempt to quench the light of another. You see love, iron sharpens iron! God has made humanity in such a way that we are interdependent! No single person can thrive and be effective in all areas of life without the input of another at every stage, phase of life.

We need each others love and understanding. We all crave to be understood for we all are a complicated work of art, woven majestically by the hand that is not of mortals. His ways are far beyond our ways.He has a plan for us and has apportioned each and everyone of us to specific tasks, scene, and phase and these overlaps. Absolutely!! God makes it so much that we are not self sufficient even though we act so, we are not!!!  God controls everything for He is sovereign and only when we realize this can we begin to function effectively with greater impact in that which has been apportioned to us.

The engine which drives us to the fulfillment of God’s plan and purpose friends, it also happens to be the greatest commandment is love! Love for God, love for self, and love for one another – Matthew 22:36-40. Love stops evil in its track ‘cos you will think twice if you would like to receive what you were about to met out/give. If we all think with the heart of love always, we would definitely act and react differently. 

Friends, will you begin to see also with the eyes of love? Then sow seeds that will yield love in your hearts. Watch your thoughts and you would begin to think differently, see differently, and act differently. Even as the scriptures admonish us in  Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Lord we thank you for loving us. May the light of your love continue to penetrate the recess of our heart until every and any form of darkness dissipate from our hearts. May we become truly an embodiment of your love, blessed to be a blessing, a conduit of the light of your countenance to all on our path to fulfilling destiny in Christ Jesus mighty name. Let the light of your love fall upon every heart and the words of life take root downward and bear fruit upwards in every heart. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
