Life Is A Gift

You only have just one chance at living. Make the best of it friends. Pick up from where you left off and run with passion. Live life to the fullest!
Have confidence in the good and wonderful blessings waiting ahead of you.
If only you know what lays ahead of you, you’ld start singing, and dancing where you are this moment.
No time to engage anyone or anything that do not add value to you but rather deplete your essence. Get busy living!

Behold, God will not cast away the blameless, Nor will He uphold the evildoers.He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, And your lips with rejoicing.Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, And the dwelling place of the wicked will come to nothing.” Job 8:20‭-‬22 NKJV

Call For Repentance

God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered? Job 9:4 NKJV


None! God is Sovereign! Repent therefore of all your sins!

You Are Loved! Believe This!

Loved by God!

I don’t know why it is so difficult for you to believe God loves you! God loves everyone! He does! He loves the Democrats, the Republicans, the Muslims, the queers, the unbelievers, everybody! God loves the WORLD! Everyone in it!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 1For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

When you and I accept this, when the WORLD accept this love, it would be easier to live a life worthy of this love. When you love someone, you do things to make that person happy, not hurt the person! So also is with the Lord. You will desire to please Him in all your ways!
Hebrews 3:12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

If the world believes that he or she is loved, this is where transformation begins! What you come to believe God does not like drops off of you when you genuinely love the Lord. You will cry out to your maker to help you get rid of what you now know is filth and lies!

Will you accept God’s love today? While it is today, as you hear God’s voice reading this, harden not your heart!

Hebrews 3:15 As has just been said:“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.

Whoever believes in Christ Jesus is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Do not reject the love of God. Open up your heart to faith!

Shalom!

Walk In The Spirit – Galatians 5:16

It takes a lot of discipline to seek the face of the Lord for direction and wait to be led by the Lord!

We often want to help God to achieve that which he placed upon our hearts by running ahead in our own power, even when God says rest, wait, and relax!

Our times are not His, this we all should know by now. When there’s delay in any area, it’s not always the devil or our enemies working against us. God is actually protecting us from undue stress and heartaches.

God is sovereign, He knows the end from the beginning. We must do ourselves favor by listening and following heavenly direction.

Wait on the Lord! Let Him direct and lead you!

Shalom!

He Lives In Hearts!

God’s dwelling place is our hearts

There is a deep yearning in the heart of every being to be one with its maker. We all crave the presence of God, and there is no better place to feel God than in His Word. Dwell in it, and live by it!

His presence is in wherever you are this moment, for God is not in that place or those places, but within you! God dwells not in that made by human hands, God dwells in our hearts. Will you allow the Lord a place in your heart today? Open up your heart and let the Lord come in. Behold He knocks, if anyone opens up for Him, He will come in and sup with him.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Acts 7:48“However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: 49 “‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? 50 Has not my hand made all these things?’

Acts 17:24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 

The question then is, is God in your heart?. Many a time we get it wrong, we want to build a house for God, do stuffs for God, while all God want is to be in us and walk with us!

If you are born again, God lives in you by His Holy Spirit. Therefore, worship Him! Worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness. Acknowledge His presence! Give Him some praise! Hallelujah!

If you do not have a relationship with God or understand what you just read. Please close your eyes and say, Lord Jesus, forgive me my sins, come into my heart and abide with me. Help me Lord to know you and have your way in my heart! It’s that simple! The Holy Spirit will help you. Trust Him!

Thank you Lord for making our hearts your dwelling place. We love you!

Shalom!

Yield! No More Excuses!

Be it people, situation or circumstances, when it hears the word of God and does not accept or obey it, transformation will never occur and the situation and circumstances will persist.

You and I may need to reexamine ourselves in relation to some instructions we had received. Have we complied in obedience? Maybe you cherry picked like I did, friends, now is the time to repent and obey the Lord, for His instruction is for our good.

1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied:“Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king.”

No amount of sacrifice, gift, seed, or whatever we have to offer can appease or incline the Lord to bend backwards for us. God is not a man! The Lord will not oblige our disobedience.

We need to repent and realign ourselves to the Lord according to the instructions contained in His Love Letter to us – The Bible!

Ezekiel 3:4 He then said to me: “Son of man, go now to the people of Israel and speak my words to them. You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and strange language, but to the people of Israel— not to many peoples of obscure speech and strange language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely if I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you. But the people of Israel are not willing to listen to you because they are not willing to listen to me, for all the Israelites are hardened and obstinate. But I will make you as unyielding and hardened as they are. I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint. Do not be afraid of them or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.”

Father, help me to obey your every word. I know I have been very disobedient. Forgive me Lord and help me to yield in obedience to your instructions. You are my Father, help me I ask in Jesus name.

You may be wondering and thinking, how hard is it to just obey! Just obey! Can we really do anything except the Lord help us? It is by God’s grace that the dinner you had last night digested and your body is able to get nutrient, and the left over excreted. If you’ve ever been constipated, I mean a bad one, you’ll understand.

Friends, let us ask our Father to help us by His Holy Spirit that dwells within us to yield our all in obedience. The stake is high friends, now is the time to truly obey and do the will of God!

Shalom!

Don’t Write It Off Yet!

Job 33: 14 For God does speak–now one way, now another–though man may not perceive it.15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds, 16 he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, 17 to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride,

God made the most beautiful specimen out of clay from the ground! He can make possible anything considered impossible. You need to lean into God and His Word. Let faith arise in you.

The Lord showed me in a vision of the night, an humongous ship upside down. I could only see from ground up. This ship was made into a structure that houses daycare, and different offices,  it was a beautiful sight to behold from within, even though I was looking from outside.

You just can’t scrap that!! Take your hands off, allow the impossible to become possible!

Friends, May the Lord give you eyes that sees, ears that hears, and a heart after Him! Please don’t write that seemingly hopeless situation off, or this year for that matter!

Just passing by, you would not have guessed that this was a ship! It was a landmark! A beauty to behold!

I honestly don’t know the full interpretation of this dream, you might be able to give it another interpretation. I however, know Our Father in heaven is always working and He can work wonders with that which we lay at His feet!!

May this verse from Isaiah 61:4 give you encouragement.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.

God make beauty out of ashes, he has brought usefulness out of scraps! What a wonderful God He is!

Beauty out of ashes! Shalom!
