You Are Known!

It was the will of God for Paul to be an Apostle of Jesus Christ according to the opening statement of the book of Ephesians chapter 1 verse 1

Ephesians 2 verse 10 says we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that God created in advance for us to fulfill.

This means God created Saul before the foundations of the world was laid according to Ephesians 1 verse 4. The book of Jeremiah 1 verse 5 also state that, before I formed you, in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Let me state this here for you: Before God formed you, I and Saul, now Paul in our mothers wombs, God knew us. Before we were born He set us apart, he appointed you, I and Paul as prophet to the nations! Wow! Isn’t this something? You can rest assured you are exactly where you ought to be! In God’s WILL!

Friends, the Lord knew you, had a plan for you, a path to walk through, and walk on. Believe it or not, every single detail of you life and mine are ALL for the glory of God’s holy name. The ups and downs, our successes and failures, the mistakes, the highs and the lows are ALL part of God’s plan to glorify Himself in YOU! Read John 9:3

Do you want to tell me God did not know Saul, now called Paul will be instrumental to the death of Stephen and other saints? God is Sovereign friends! He knows! And He works in ways we cannot simply understand. Ephesians 1:11 says God works out EVERYTHING in conformity with the purpose of his will.

This should encourage you to rejoice even now! You are in God’s will, walking the path He ordained for you, thriving, and flourishing like the cedars of Lebanon, proclaiming , ” The Lord is upright; He is My Rock and there is no wickedness in him”. Psalms 92:15

My message for you today is to trust in the plan of God for your life. In whatever situation and circumstances, ask God to give sight to your eyes so that you might see His mighty hands even in the bleakness around and in the sunshine all over you.

God is in the midst of you, you will not be shaken – Psalms 46:5

Shalom!

Expect Goodness!

When I look around me, I see the Lord’s goodness.

It is funny that we pray God’s goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our life – Psalms 23:6, yet we are looking around for that which is contrary!

When you pray God’s goodness, expect God’s goodness! It’s that simple.

Stop looking for trouble!

Be expectant that pleasant surprises await your every step!

Shalom!

Life Is A Gift!

Many a time, it takes the passing of someone else for us to appreciate life, our life, this moment that is ours!

Take pleasure with every breath!

Friends, learn to savor the breath in your nostrils, feel the beating of your heart, take in the sight around you and say thank you Jesus!

From the depth of your heart give God the glory due to Him!

Shalom!

Will To Live! Hope!Not Giving Up!

In any war there are always casualties. May we not be casualties of war, and for those that will be, may they find someone who will not give up on them, someone who will nurse them back to life, someone who will inspire them with the “Will to Live”

That is the phrase I woke up with this morning. In the dream of the night, I saw two factions, a group of military personnel and what seems like civilians, gang members of sort under tension.

In the twinkle of an eye, fight broke out, and some people were caught in the cross fire. I saw body bags in Humvee. To me it seems these bodies are not been helped as much. They were given up on too easily, too soon. One person’s last word was to her mate to take her valuables to pass on to her family as life was slipping off of her and her mate just took the items to pass on without so much as assisting her to stay here.

I went to this body and felt rapid heartbeat and the other body also with life color off, yet with a heart beat. I touched both and spoke thus, “summon up the will to live”! I kept repeating this phrase while touching these two until they both seem to regain color on their faces, one got up and was repeating the phrase, “will to live”! Will To Live! Will To Live!

You can speak life to dead situations around you. The power of life and death is in the tongue. Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

In whatever situation or circumstances, may you receive grace to Will the dead situation in your life back to life. Many a time we give up so easily without a fight, we abandon projects, difficult tasks, hurting relationships, goals, ideas. and the likes. We bury seeds that only need a little scent of water to blossom.

Job 14:7-9 “At least there is hope for a tree:
    If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
    and its new shoots will not fail.
Its roots may grow old in the ground
    and its stump die in the soil,
yet at the scent of water it will bud
    and put forth shoots like a plant.

I don’t know where you have been written off, forgotten, or left for dead, I have a message for you, receive life this moment. By the help of the Holy Spirit receive grace and the Will TO LIVE!

The Word says you shall not die but live to exalt the Lord In the land of the living- Psalm 118:17

Shalom!

Peace Of Christ.

Many times over we run here and there, looking, searching for something, someone, an experience to satisfy our innermost cravings.

We search for that which has always been. The voice of the Spirit of life within us, for it has been with us before the foundation of the world was laid.

Resting In Christ Embrace.

This is the ultimate peace and joy, and it has ALWAYS been within us, and our reach if only we had learnt to listen, and pay attention to that inner voice.

The Spirit beckons you to come this moment. Lay your heart bare before your maker. Ask Him to touch you where no hands can. He’ll hold you close and give you His peace, peace like a river.

John 14: 27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Allow the peace of God to rule in your heart – Colossians 3:15

Peace of God that passes all understanding!

Only then will you finally find what you have been looking for within you.

Rest In The Lord, Confidence In Jesus, Hope of Ultimate Perfection, Assurance Of Salvation, Home In Your Savior, and Walk On Eternal Path amongst many.

The mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. -YOU

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU , THE HOPE OF GLORY.”
Colossians 1:26-27

Shalom!
