Restoration – God’s Promise

Life1 Samuel 30:18&19 David recovered everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives. 19 Nothing was missing: young or old, boy or girl, plunder or anything else they had taken. David brought everything back.

Friends, like David, be encouraged in the capability of God to restore unto you all that you have lost, has been stolen and cheated out off. You will not only recover all but much more than you lost. God is in the habit of doing far above all we can ask or thing according to his glorious riches by Christ Jesus.

This season, you will be be blessed beyond your expectation. Enlarge your tent, prepare room for increase, the heavens are open over you, reach out in faith and take hold of God’s promises for you and your generation unborn.

Joel 2: 25-27; 25“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—

the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm—
my great army that I sent among you.
26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
27 Then you will know that I am in Israel,
that I am the Lord your God,
and that there is no other;
never again will my people be shamed.

All the years wasted in ignorance of what Jesus had wrought for you, years wasted in life’s futility without divine aim. The Lord is willing, able and has promised to restore to you everything you have lost.

Will you acknowledge the Sovereignty of the Most High God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, your creator and lover of your soul?

Take time to seek his face, he is longing for you, Jesus does love you and want the best for you. Trust Christ.

Have a wonderful time in his presence.

Shalom!

Greatness untapped – Help Holy Spirit!!!!!!!!!

It is said that the greatest enemy of greatness is distraction. Distraction will make you lose focus of what is important, it will create doubt, unbelief and confusion the cost of which are – the list is unlimited:

step upA bestseller novels, books, and journals not written
A #1 on the chat album not released
An impact, positive influence in your family, community, society and globally
A powerful move of the Holy Spirit through you to jump-start a revival
A Grammy for best picture movie not made
A successful growing business empire not built
A much-needed/anticipated medical solution not researched / discovered
A beautiful love / life not nurtured, not shared
A home family not built
A child not given birth too
A friendship not sustained
A marriage not enjoyed
A career / business not built
A vision and revelation not pursued and prayed into manifestation
An endless mirage of might have been

Please prayerfully put a system in place to help you, something or someone who would channel you back to the original plan when you set out from heaven. Who better to do this than the Holy Spirit of the Most High God. You can draw up a plan, have sticky notes all over your house, car and office, alarm set for every hour on your cell.

Without conscious discipline distraction would still find a way through. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in. He is the spirit of truth and guides us into all truth. Will you let Him help you to stay focused on what is important, what is necessary to your walking in victory as ordained of God?

Friends, will you jump into the moment? Acknowledge that you cannot do it all alone and that you need His help, confess, repent, forsake all known sins –  God is too holy to behold unrighteousness no matter how little we perceive it. Receive the righteousness of Christ Jesus and cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, let Him abide in you and with you.

Take this lifetime opportunity to build on the Rock, the immovable Rock of ages that never fails.  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever world without end.

Greatness Within You – Trust God

Yes you were! Yes! you and you!
Yes you were! Yes! you and you!

The seed of greatness lies deep within everyone. The light of God shining through by the help of the Holy Spirit bring it to our consciousness. The knowledge of who we are birth a yearning, so strong a desire to bring forth that which has laid dormant within us since the beginning of time. Remember friends, before the foundations of the earth was laid, God knew us.

Jeremiah 1:4-10

4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,5 “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.”
6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

What are you waiting for friends, start flexing your muscles. Every baby steps should be towards your calling in life. You are here for a purpose. A grand purpose at that, it required Jesus Christ to step in and gave himself as a ransom when great grand dad and mom sinned in the garden of Eden. Do not let that precious blood be in vain. Rise up, strengthen the feeble hand and do something, anything that will align you with the design of heaven.

Greatness await you friends! Let go of everything and everyone that do not add value to your life. Ask God to show you what to do. He told Samuel in 1 Samuel 16:3 …..” I will show you what to do”. He still speaks and will speak to your situation if you would only listen and be obedient. Does it really matter what people will say or not say? Who cares? You? Then you are not yet ready to tap into the greatness within your reach, the greatness that God planted in your heart.

Stand with God, he will see you through. Trust God’s judgement, he knows way more than you could ever know and sees farther than you could. Jeremiah 32:19 Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind;……

The Lord that started a good thing in your life is able to complete it, he will perfect it, yield yourself, trust God and he will grant you the desires of your heart. Every of your action backed by faith in the written word of God shall prosper. Trust thou in the Lord ye children of the Most High God.

Shalom

Greatness Out Of Smallness!

Mark 8:17-21 Aware of the discussion among his disciples, Jesus asked them “Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to  hear? And don’t you remember?……”

Embrace Greatness!
Embrace Greatness!

Jesus was referring to how he gave thanks unto the Father and used five loaves of bread and two small fish to feed five thousand people, and seven loaves of bread and few small fish to feed four thousand people. On both occasion there were left over.

Jesus is the master multiplier. If you let him, allow him to partner with you, he will take that which seems insignificant in your hands and use it to do mighty things. He did it for the the widow of a Prophet when he turned a small jar of olive oil in the hand of a poor widow into an oil depot, an oil making plant, from lack and insufficiency into abundance. 2 Kings 4:1-7

Will you give what you have in your hands, your talent, gifts, time ….. all to Jesus today. Let him transform it – multiply, perfect it and use it for your benefit, humanity, Church and the glory of the Father in heaven.

Be a vessel of honor in Christ hands, a channel of blessing, a thirst quencher. Let Jesus use your sorrow in time past to bring hope and joy to those that are sorrowful. Let Christ use your pain to soothe and heal, to bring solace to many. Yield your boat to the master like Peter, become fishers of men.

Allow Jesus to take hold of your gifts and talent to bring terror to the kingdom of darkness and salvation to the lost.

Yield your life today – your all, make it count. Jesus is Lord.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Jesus Cares – For you!

Thank Jesus for life!
Thank Jesus for life!

1 Samuel 17:37 The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”

Life is in seasons friends!  Whatever season you are presently in, remember the Lord your God and worship Him. He who was there in the season of scarcity, is in the midst of your plenty. He was in the midst of war, shielding and protecting and is still there in the midst of peace, stroking the back of your neck. This God is the Most High God, that rules in the affairs of men. He is ever faithful, only constant, always on time.

You see, while David was taking care of the Fathers herds, lions and bears came to steal,kill and destroy, but the Lord delivered him. There was no trophy, there was no applause but he knew for sure that if it had not been for the Lord, he would have been forgotten. Facing Goliath was not so scary after all. This was standing for the Most High God who had delivered him in the wilderness. How can he standby and this awesome God is defied by an uncircumcised Philistines? That was too much for David to take in, He did not volunteer because of the reward but to silence and end the reproach and ridicule thrown upon the armies of the Most High God.

What is that situation in your life causing you shame, reproach and is ridiculing you – your maker? What situation is defying the grace of God upon your life? Friends and family have called your faith in Jesus Christ into question, slandered your faith in God – why hasn’t he shown up for you? Foes have requested evidence of your faith. Where is your God?- echoes all around you.

Too many questions you cannot answer, and many unanswered questions of your own. But, but, you know deep down within you that God loves you and is working out something wonderful for you. You know all things will work out for your good. You know without a shadow of doubt- God is working it out for you, he’s working it out for you.

Be assured that God is indeed working it out for you. Stop listening to the skeptic, turn a deaf ear to jeers, keep calm, God is working it out for you. He that made sure you did not fall into that ditch, the trap set by Satan himself will not let you be overwhelmed by that situation. God kept you alive, think of the near misses and you will realize there is a higher and greater purpose for your life. God is working it out for you. 

This situation will pass, the storm will not sweep you off, Christ Jesus is in the midst of the storm, holding you, He is your anchor, hold on friends. Christ had done this before, remember that situation few years back, or was it months, probably weeks, yes that situation He maneuver you out of? He is the same yesterday, today and forever! He will show up for you and glad you will be!

Put your trust in the Lord friends for He cares for you. Shalom

Love you Lord! Thank you Jesus!

God's love is unequaled, unfathomable,unquenchable,amazing and satisfying.
God’s love is unequaled, unfathomable, unquenchable,amazing and satisfying!

I am highly favored of God. Feel so loved, honored and privileged to be so loved and chosen to be an instrument, vessel of honor in the hands of the creator of the heavens and the earth – an embodiment of pure love and grace radiating through a mere mortal ( redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ).

Lord, I have gone through situations and circumstances that I felt was the end of me, yet you brought me out stronger. You’ve always shown me your love and I knew it not. I had no clue that you knew me, and could not imagine you, the Most High God, having good plans for my life.

I had no idea that you destined me for greatness Lord, probably I would have walked circumspectly. You’ve always been there for me Lord Jesus! Though it took a long time to see you and acknowledge you. You were always there watching over me. Those dark days when the sun seem not to shine, the cloudy days with fogs that made seeing impossible, the slippery road I had to go through to get to where I wanted to go.

You showed up Lord, got me there somehow, even though you had a different plan and route for me. You gently guided me back to your original plan and purpose for which you created me. You soothe my pain, heartaches, hugged me to calm my aching body.

Oh Lord my God, how awesome you are! How marvelous is your loving kindness? I am amazed by the depth of your love for me Lord! It is beyond my understanding and I will not try to figure it out, I will just bask in your love Lord. I will enjoy your presence, grace and all that you have provided abundantly for me to be all that you created me to be. Thank you Lord Jesus! I am so grateful, joyful and thankful.

You see my heart Lord, these are words from my soul. Thank you so very much. Love you tonnes Lord Jesus.

Great Destiny-Your Destiny!

You have a great destiny! Embrace it prayerfully!
You have a great destiny! Embrace it prayerfully!

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship , created in Christ Jesus for good works , which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Friends, please note that God had plans for your life. You are not here by accident. It does not matter what you are going through right now, it will work out for the good for which God created you.

You see, God had a great task to be accomplished in the future. He then stood in the beginning of time, created and formed you in Christ Jesus as a spirit being equipped to do this lofty future task.

Remember that as humans God gave us free will. You came to earth through whatever means which plays a part in who you are destined to be. Everything must of necessity work for your good even though you might not enjoy it in the moment, there is a master plan – prayerfully embrace it.

Every experience of life is to equip you and enable you to do the task created in advance for you to do. If you haven’t experienced the loss of a spouse, how do you console someone in that position. Divorce, separation or distance from each other can not stand next to death. Death is final, hope is lost until eternity, unlike divorce and separation which can be restored while distance is temporal.

How do you console a 33 year old mother of two children under 2 years that have just lost her  husband?

How do you encourage a young wife that has just been rejected, abandoned and deeply injured?

How do you give hope to a chaste beautiful young woman who no eligible man checks out- ask out? How do you make her see that she is beautiful and that the right man will come as ordained by God?

How do you help others to see what you see in the words of God, the predestined plan and purpose for which he created us all in Christ Jesus, if you yourself haven’t gone through things that brought you to your knees and points you to the Word where you found yourself.

Now you know why you are going through what you are going through. You have to be equipped to do what you are created to do.

The right experience that will build your character to reflect Christ Jesus does not come natural to us. Remember our nature is of this world, corrupt, self seeking and self gratifying. It is in Christ Jesus that we are transformed daily to be who God created us to be.

Therefore, friends in whatever situation you are in right now ask God to give you discernment to learn what you need to learn and move to the next stage of life.

To get to your final destination from where you are, you need to cooperate with God by seeking his face, yielding your self and obeying every instructions backed up by the word of God.

Be led by the Holy Spirit towards becoming who God created you to be. God said he has a plan for you, to bless you and not to harm you, and to see you to an expected end – to fulfill your destiny – the work God had prepared in advance for you to do.

Repent therefor from every disobedience-sin, ask Jesus into your life, accept his plan for your life- he knows you better than you know yourself and knows what is good for you. Embrace the love of Christ, let it guide you.

You will get there, you will make it, your life is beautiful, your future is colorful and your destiny is glorious!

Can you see it?

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Heart Cry – God Hears!

Psalms 5

God hears!
God hears even the still small voice!

1 Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
