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!

Sovereign Reign!

The Lord is Sovereign, what He says He will do will be done. You cannot stop Him, hinder him, maneuver Him, or manipulate God!

The sooner you realize this the better for you. Realign yourself with the purpose of God’s will today. Seek His face while He may be found! The Lord Reigns! Halleluyah!

Make the Lord your priority! He is all that count! Selah!

Psalms 47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.

Shalom!

Intelligence Harnessed!

Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.


Education, intelligence, and wisdom should be employed to solve problems, create solutions and opportunity for dialogue, reformation, peaceful transition and positive transformation for the good of all.

In spiritual settings, skills, giftings, talents, and graces – the capability to harness and employ education, intelligence, and wisdom in services for the good of all should likewise be channelled to solve problems for people, create solutions, and opportunity for growth, reformation, transformation, and inspiration!

Be careful therefor of what you listen to! 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.

Negative rhetorics can erode your capacity to think and make good judgement


When faith in that Spirit which existed in people, that the Spirit of the Almighty has revealed as a result of these people giving the Holy Spirit room in their lives, is gradually being chipped away by the very medium through which they heard these words of liberation, the zeal and spark dies, get corroded, or at best lay dormant and useless for the good causes it is created to be applied to.

Everyone with ears should take care of what goes in there! Hearers beware!!

It however, is used as we see in the Capitol, to oppress, depress, suppress, and intimidate! This is counterintuitive don’t you think?

As a society then, blessed and highly favored, we must lay aside the sins that easily beset – ego, selfish ambitions, greed, and all kinds of evil that have dominated our lives and gatherings, to embrace repentance, reformation, and graciousness.

So help us God!

Love Reflect Christ

Time and time again the scriptures talks about loving God, and loving others as we love ourself. Truly, the mark of Christ upon your life is the love you have for His creation. Loving your wife, your husband, kids, siblings, parents, friends, and family is easy enough. But loving people you don’t even know and wishing for them good as you wish for your self is a step further and it can only be of God!

I must say that love is an anchor, for Christ Jesus is love himself. If you are a believer and you don’t give a shoot about anyone other than those closest to you, check yourself. You may be deceiving yourself and far from being Christ’s

Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. This is Jesus and he is LOVE!

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love of God in your heart will get you through any difficulty. You will overcome and triumph over all kinds of evil with love.

Love one another! Only love can heal the wound! Only Love can heal the world!

By this the world will know that you are my disciple if you love one another. John 13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love for one another, not only for those in your household, but for those from without, and even the so called gentiles and children of perdition.

The chaos we see in establishments here and there including the Church is because of lack of love. Ego, selfish desires, and ambitions can never reflect Christ’s love, rather it reflect the flesh in its unbrokenness, which is of the devil.

Friends, I pray the Holy Spirit will help you and I in this last days to reflect on our walk with Christ and go back to the drawing board to ask for forgiveness and grace to love as Christ loves us.

John 15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 

I must say without love in your heart, eternity will be far from you. Invite Jesus into your heart today. He loves you and gave himself for you. Ask Him In!

Shalom!

Lies and Stupidity Is Not A Norm! Truth and Wisdom Is!

It is so unfortunate that when Godly wisdom, truth, diplomacy, love of God, others, and of Country is needed most in the World, the custodians of virtues- Religious Leaders had non handy. We seem to have gotten used to the rottenness all around and decency was far gone. Non existence!

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 4:17 He who knows what is good and right to do, and does not do it, to that person, it is a sin. SIN!!!!!!!!!

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Kindness Is A Virtue

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

One of the fruit of the spirit is kindness.

As a believer, transformed by the word of God. One of the evidence of your transformation is that you will begin to bear this fruit- Kindness. You either have it or not. You cannot fake it for it has a fragrance of it own.

Pray that Christ’s love, grace, and Word will take root downward in you and bear the fruit of kindness upwards in your heart.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
