Unexpected Help! Defending Honor!

1 Chronicles 12:32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.

You think too highly of yourself! Who do you think you are? Is it all about you? I am sure you must have heard such addressed to you, or to someone in your presence. You will hear more of such as you step out in faith and in obedience.

Eliab, David’s older brother spoke accusatory to him also when he went to inquire about their welfare as instructed by their Father, Jesse. I Samuel 17:17 Now Jesse said to his son David, “Take this ephah of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp.18 Take along these ten cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how your brothers are and bring back some assurance from them. 

In verse 28 When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, “Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.” 29 “Now what have I done?” said David. “Can’t I even speak?” 30 He then turned away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men answered him as before. 31 What David said was overheard and reported to Saul, and Saul sent for him.

King Saul, anointed, with the whole army of Israel were afraid of Goliath. None could face him, rather, none attempted, none was willing to lay down his life to take away this reproach from Israel. These were men chosen for their strength, skill, and experience, yet they failed. They failed because of their unwillingness to make sacrifices.

Friends, can you see the similarity between this story and what is taking place in your community, state, province, and country? This cut across every nation. Officials are selected, chosen, and elected, into office with the hope that they will represent and fight for the need of the electorate. However, they get to the battlefield, and suddenly they are too scared to speak, be a voice for the voiceless, and champion the cause of the people.

Well, God always has alternatives! He is never short of vessels fit for his use. A David is coming, unannounced, unassuming, and unexpected. David did not look like it, I mean, he wasn’t even qualified as an armor bearer, horse whisperer, neither a cook. He was just not fit for coming out for war. Yet, the Almighty God brought Goliath down by his hands. He gave his honor, life, everything as sacrifice to restore honor to the armies of the Most High.

underestimateDavid did not think highly of himself, he just wanted to stand for God! Some of us are so self conscious of their own honor to speak the truth where it matters! May God not replace you and I, for the axe is already place!

The Goliath defying the armies of God is coming down. As it was, so is! God already spoke it, so shall it be. Therefor, friends, whatever Goliath represent in your life, note that its time is short. What will bring it down will not look like it, sound like it, feel like it, dress like it, drive like it, run like it in anyways, yet Goliath will come down!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Prevailing Voices! Let It Be Of Love!

When evil reigns in a land, a life, a community, a group, people with opposing views, not seeing eye to eye will join forces and voices, albeit temporarily, they will come together in unity against a common perceived enemy. This was the case with our Lord Jesus Christ. The Pharisees and Sadducee have opposing views, yet they bound together against the Lord Jesus, the man they have identified as a common enemy, accused of inciting the people of the land against their rule. The man sent by God to deliver them from eternal darkness. Luke 23:10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.

Radiant Glory Of Love

Lord God Almighty, I pray today for my friends and I. Lord let not the voice of our enemies prevail over our lives in Jesus Mighty name. Luke 23:23 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed.

Living The Word! Truth!

“This means put into practice the truth you have already comprehended. We are responsible for the truth we currently possess.” NIV Commentary

What truth do you already know? Are you living by It? We all know the greatest commandment! Don’t we all? Don’t you? Well, let me tell you! 
It is according to Jesus Christ, to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and the greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. Matthew 22:37 – 39

Let us act out on this truth, all of us that knows this truth, and I know, certainly so, we will be able to make a difference in our world, starting from our family. Charity begins at home! 

Let us endeavour to live a life of love! Just think about this for a moment. Treating everyone the way you like to be treated, doing unto others what you expect to be done to you. 

We will be kinder, nicer, thoughtful, selfless, respectful, giving, we will live more freely, be authentic, less judgemental, and the list goes on. Our world, I mean our relationship, family, Churches, community, will be different from what it is now! 

“No matter what I am going through, love always pulls me out of whatever darkness wants to drown me! Love is my life’s anchor!” Joan Boldact

Help us Lord to live the truth we already know! Help us to not only love in words, but in action. Help us to forgive so we can be forgiven we pray in Jesus mighty name.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Seeing Eyes!

Have you seen what the Lord has done? He has destroyed the works of Satan! He has given you and I victory! That’s why we sing “Praise the Lord!”.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

textgram-71655646100.pngFriends, can you see your victory over every difficulty? Can you see yourself succeeding where you had failed before? Can you feel peace like a river flowing in your soul? Can you see yourself operating in the mind of Christ? Can you see abundance of all that pertains to life and godliness all around you?

This can only be when you have Christ Jesus as your anchor! Accept His love freely given! Invite Jesus into your life folks! He cares for you!

Seriously! He longs to be your anchor!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Relationship On My Mind: Reproach!

Have you prayed consistently and it seem your prayer was and is not being answered? Have you ever suffered reproach of any kind? Rejected and abandoned? Or in a union but unloved by your spouse?

Has life served you a curve ball? Whatever you have experienced in life is a tool to get your attention, to get you to where you ought to be, do what you are made to do, be who you are created to be, still be in the faith, living a life worthy of your calling!

textgram_1515689054807437002.png

There is a situation really worst than been single, divorced, separated! That is to be in a loveless marriage, masking it, living a make believe life, constantly striving, going in circles!

For all going through this, may the love of Christ give you perspective! May you find meaning in your situation. May you not be tempted beyond what you can take!

Please note that regardless of the curve balls life throws, your mistakes and shortcomings, your destiny is unchanged, you will fulfill purpose! Repent and do not let the Lord down! Live intentionally for His glory!

Please listen to R T Kendall and be blessed!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
