Watch “You are My All in All” on YouTube

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

THEME: GOD: A WONDER
MEMORISE:

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 

Isaiah 57:15
READ: Isaiah 57:15-16
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For | will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

Joshua 12-14 & Jeremiah 45:1-46:12
MESSAGE 
“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Exodus 15:11
One amazing thing you need to know about our God is that He is a wonder! For example, In 1 John 4:8, the Bible says that God is love, and yet in Hebrews 12:29, the same Bible says this God is a consuming fire! When you hear that God is love, you will think of embracing Him, but just then, you also hear that He is a consuming fire and you freeze, asking yourself if you want to embrace fire! Another wonder of God has to do with His size or form. The Scriptures say God is so big that the heaven and the heavens of heaven cannot contain Him (1 Kings 8:27). It also says that Heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool, meaning that as He sits in Heaven His legs touch the earth (Isaiah 66:1). Just imagine how great and long those legs are! What of His arms? The Bible says His arms are everlasting and so long that they can reach any distance (Deuteronomy 33:27). When you try to picture how super-massive this God is, then you will begin to wonder how such a God can become small enough to reside inside of you. 1 John 4:4 says,

“Ye are of God little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
God is truly awesome and a wonder we cannot comprehend. As massive as God is, He can still relate with us at our tiny, very little level. As high as He is, He can still reach down to those who are lowly placed or have a heart of humility. In fact, from the height of heights, God is able to see those who are of a humble spirit, and He relates with them while ignoring the proud. Are you like God? Is the position you occupy not distancing you from those who are not as fortunate or as privileged as you are? If you are truly of God, your privileged status will not hinder you from reaching out to those who are impoverished. Recently, the wife of one of the richest men on earth visited an African country and identified with the poorest people there by trekking a good distance to fetch water like the poor women there. She carried a bucket of water on her head and trekked all the way back. She also joined in washing the dishes in a very poor neighbourhood. That is a minute example of what Jesus did by leaving His heavenly throne and becoming a man (Philippians 2:5-8). Can you leave your throne to reach out to the lowly?
KEY POINT: 

lf you have truly encountered Jesus Christ, there is nobody that you cannot relate with.
