So Grateful!

Thank you Lord for enriching my life

With all the trials, temptations, troubles and triumph

I am grateful for the small things of life

Grateful for the little things of life

They’ve all made my world beautiful

Grateful for all that is mine – desires, dreams, passion, aspirations ……

For you placed them there, in my heart, to keep me alive

For yet it shall be and you will give me more

More for this lifetime and beyond

To be fulfilled, to perfection only in Christ Jesus

Grateful Lord for your kindness to me and mine

Be magnified Oh Lord.

Voices, Vices! Truth!

There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.

Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.

Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.

What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.

You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.

At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23

By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!

Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!

Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21

Shalom!

Verse of the Day

Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?

Matthew 16:24 MSG

They overcame, defeated, conquered him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and the bold, words of their testimony, witness; …. Revelation 12:11

The blood of the Lamb is the blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary’s tree for the sin of the world.

What then is the words of our testimony? The bold words of our witness?

A testimony refers to a formal written spoken statement, especially one given in a court of law. Testimony is the evidence or proof provided for the existence or appearance of something, a public recounting of a religious conversion or experience. Synonyms: evidence, sworn statement, attestation, affidavit. —Culled from Google

The blood of the Lamb and the bold words of our testimony overcomes the devil!

Your testimony and mine is our bold witness in words and action of what has taken place in our hearts.

David’s testimony empowered him. He overcame fear, and opposition; he glorified God! 1 Samuel 17

What then is your God story? What is your testimony? What is your bold witness?

I have heard enough of your life story, your successes and failures, your achievement, and accomplishment.

I want to hear your testimony! The bold word of what God has done in you, through you, and for you! Your testimony is that which Christ is written all over with the blood of the Lamb! David a teenager chasing after a lion and bear? 1 Samuel 17:34-36

What is your God story? I

Watch “You are My All in All” on YouTube

I am amazed by the grace and mercies of God. You know what friends? Christ Jesus is right there whenever we invite Him. He sees our hearts and motives. Knows what we need before we ask.

This past weekend, I had to make a trip, unavoidably so, and I was not in the frame of mind for such. I was tired, my body needed a work out if you know what I mean. My joints and bolt needed tightening, in short I wasn’t feeling fit in anyway physically and mentally. I knew I needed a miracle. Most time for lesser hours I bank on caffeine, but for this trip I knew I needed more than caffeine, a higher power definitely!

There was no way I could get to my destination by flight on time, too many stopovers with long hours. It was an impossibility!

So I got things together and decided to drive. I held hands with my companions and asked the Lord to strengthen me by His spirit in my inner man and tears were rolling down my eyes. I felt so very weak and reached out for Christ’ strenght and He obliged me.

He obliged me so much that I was in awe. I drove for 18 hours one way and came back filled with energy I could run a marathon with. There’s nothing my God cannot do!

One lesson I learnt from this experience is that I am the one that have not been believing as I ought to for all my needs according to His capability! Yes, HIS CAPABILITY! Not my ability, but His! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me came alive in me this past four days!

However, when my back was to the wall and I needed to move, it was very clear to me that only His strength can overcome my weakness.

Lord Jesus, thank you so very much. I am so grateful. Praise to your Holy name Oh Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
