Confidence Booster

One of the scriptures that gives me immeasurable joy and confidence is Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed ME in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose Me in Christ before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Personified

Meditate on these scriptural verses and see your confidence in Christ skyrocket. You will just know that you know you are more than the other voices are saying about you! This confirms that you are loved so much that plans were in place for your good before you ever came into the picture!

Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to son-ship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

Shalom!

You Are Chosen In Him!

In Christ Jesus I was also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, Ephesians 1:11

Friends, this new month, if you do not remind yourself of what God has spoken about you in the scriptures, the devil will tell you what God has not said about you!

Remember, God’s intention towards you is of good, to prosper you, not of evil, God’s intention is to give you hope and a glorious future, to see you to your expected end of goodness and mercy always. Jeremiah 29:11

You have got to believe this and walk in that confidence! Jesus loves you and want to have a relationship with you. He also has great plans for you.

Walk into the light as He beckons you come. Matthew 11:28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. For all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory – Romans 3:23

My 2 cent to start you off on Truth that set free!

Shalom!

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!

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!

Never Too Late!

As long as you are living, and you are fortunate to know the mind of God for your life, let nothing stop you from doing all that you know God wants you to do.

To many times we allow situations and circumstances to steal our time, energy, and resources.

Friends, this very moment is the perfect time to walk the path you know heaven ordained for you before the foundation of the earth was laid.

Apostle Paul is a good example of someone who refused to let situation or circumstances stop him from fulfilling his God given destiny.

Paul was a prisoner yet he kept on walking the path heaven bestowed on him. The thorn in his side could not stop him, neither the many storm and shipwrecks.

Acts 28:16 When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him.

.. 30For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him.
31 Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

You also can pickup from where you left off 22years ago, 30, 40, or 5 years ago. Pick up your dreams this day and start running with it.

With God, it is never too late, or else you’d be 6 feet under!

Get up, wake up, pick it up, and walk!

Shalom!

Humbled! We All! Our World!

Hmmmm!
In the very thing in which they boasted, Covid has humbled them!

The World in her entirety is humbled! That is, you and I!

The facts still remains that this season is the best ever for some people.

God is Sovereign!

God works in mysterious ways! Even when the world is set at disarray, God is setting up some people for greatness!

Friends, it is an individual thing! What do you see the Lord doing this season?

Isaac sowed in the land, during famine/ Covid/ distress, and reaped a thousand – Genesis 26:12

What do you see?
What do you want to see happening for you, yours, your land and her people?
Seek the face of God for your desired results by faith!
Put faith to work!
Take action!
Voila!
It is done?
By God’s Holy Spirit.

Shalom!

Human Frailty! Not Curses!

2 Kings 13:14 Now Elisha had been suffering from the illness from which he died.

I am surprised that Elisha, with the double portion of Elijah’s anointing suffered from an illness. Elijah with half was taken to heaven. He did not die as all mortals die. Elisha is the man who’s dead bones gave back life to the dead!. Can you fathom that? God is Sovereign!

2 Kings 13:21 Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man’s body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet.

Remember, we are all human and subject to the frailty of the human condition. Like Paul, Timothy, you and I, including the man or woman you always run to for deliverance, we all are human and have issues. Period!

Let no man of God doom your faith with falsehood of a curse or curses upon your head, family, and so on. They have same in their families too!

Stop running helter-skelter! Seek the face of God for yourself, seek medical help, change your life style, and be optimistic!

Jesus is Lord!

The Lord’s Favor

2 Kings 13:3 So the Lord’s anger burned against Israel, and for a long time he kept them under the power of Hazael king of Aram and Ben-Hadad his son.

Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord listened to him, for he saw how severely the king of Aram was oppressing Israel. The Lord provided a deliverer for Israel, and they escaped from the power of Aram. So the Israelites lived in their own homes as they had before.

Whenever Israel sin against the Lord, God allows them to be oppressed by their enemies. However, as soon as Israel repented of their sinful ways and ask God for mercy, God always heard and deliver them.

Friends, there are many things we have left undone for far too long. We have gotten used to oppression, and depression. They are not the norm. They need to go!

Our enemies have capitalized upon the disobedience of our hearts, and the ignorance of our being that we have not repented of. The enemy of our soul is using these to bamboozle us, oppress, malign, and cheat us of what rightly belong to us.

Our freedom to be, to be real, authentic, and truly live freely without encumbrance. To be our highest selves, dauntless, and bold in every, and all circumstances.

Now is the time to petition heaven, cry unto the Lord, seek for the favour of God like Jehoazah.

God is bound by His word, He will listen, He sees, and He will deliver. You can bank on this! God will deliver you!

Raise your voice unto the Lord today. He will send help!

Shalom!
