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

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!
What a state the world is in! The Lord spoke again, in a dream of the night, as he has done in his words.
I was in a place caring for many children and looked and saw, sort of a boardroom filled with men in suit
