The Right Thing!

We must continuously strive to do what is right. We know it already, we should do it then by grace!

We often know what we are doing wrong, but because we seem to have been getting away with it all this while, we continue therein.

We must however, remember that the Lords long suffering is for our repentance. 2 Peter 3:15

Be In Synch! With Purpose!

Oh Lord, may we not stand against your plan and purpose for our lives

If a Kingdom is divided against itself, that Kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:23-24

Jesus was accused unjustly and this was his response. However, for you and I on the flip side, are there ways in which we may have been standing against ourselves?

God is working in us and for us, healing, assuring, transforming us, however, we may sometimes not see the result as we ought to if we work contrary to His will.

Lord please help us, especially me!😃 My “unselfish” side.

Help us Lord, for the things we want to do, we do it not, and those things we ought not to do is what we do. Romans 7:15-20

Deliver us Lord, and work in us to will and to act that your good pleasure alone will be fulfilled in us in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Devil Knows!

Mark 3:11 Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.”

Friends, this should explain the animosity you get from some quarters. You see, the wicked can perceive the grace of God upon your life. They can see

Christ in you the hope of your gloryColossians 1:27

and this is not their wish for you, so they will antagonize you.

You wonder why your mere presence causes discomfort? This is why!

You my friend carry the very presence of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Like my sister said, a good morning to some people is an invitation to find fault with you. This ought not be so if Christ lives within!

Jesus said they, the wicked, the haters of anything good, and Christ-like will hate you and I. John 15:18-27. It is a guarantee. Don’t take it personal my friend, they will never like you and you do not have to care about it. You cannot please these and Christ at the same time. You have to choose who’s side you want to be!

Friends, be wise like a serpent and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16. Ask for grace to keep your heart free from offenses. Do not stray from the path of righteousness. The Lord Himself watches over you!

Do not forget to pray for your perceived enemies. Matthew 5 :44

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Put On The Spot?

Sometimes, you will be put on the spot. Your matter, the shame and reproach of your life will be brought to the forefront for all to see.

You may have been mocked by many, including those closest to you, but know that this is not Christ’s intention.

Jesus brought you to the forefront to showcase His power, love and glory in you!

Those that have been mocking you, pointing you out to others to make jest will soon seek you out to rejoice with you. For a notable miracle is done and being done in you!

Stay humble, be obedient to the master’s instructions!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Stretch Out Your Hands!

You need to “stretch out your hand”. Whatever this means to you friends. It maybe be try it again, apply, submit, ask, go, walk, step out, do something! You must stretch out your hands!

Just imagine how many times this man must have stretched out his hands to look at it. He must have wept as you weep when you are overwhelmed by the issues of your life.

Yet, Christ beckons you to stretch your faith and look at that issue again.

Mark 3: 3 Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “stand up in front of everyone.

4 Then Jesus asked them, ” which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they remained silent. 5. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distress at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, ” stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. 6. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.

Many a time the Lord want to do somethings in our lives, but the Pharisees and the Herodians, will kick against it because they do not want the Lord to showcase His Almightiness in you. In such instances friends, learn to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and obey the voice of the Lord Himself.

Regardless of the approval of man, Christ Jesus will and is fulfilling His great pleasure in you.

Can you not see the outstretched hand healed? Your heart softened, your body totally healed, your perspectives changed, can you not see my friends?

God is doing a new thing in you! He is showcasing His love and power! Be grateful.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Renewed!Restored!

New Wine In New Wine-Skins

Mark 2: 21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wine-skins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wine-skins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wine-skins.”

We must not continue in the same old ways! There must be a change, a turnaround, a retraction, an improvement, an upgrade of our character to reflect Christ in us, the hope of glory.

We have received of Christ, a character building mechanism in the person of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

So now then, since we have received of the Lord newness of life, let us walk accordingly in line with who we are, a new creation, a renewed being, re-energized, refocused, re-validated, restored, and retracted from every form of unwholesome, unworthy endeavors that does not serve Christ’s purpose.

Declare with me friends, I am redeemed, I am set free from all sorts that binds, I am refreshed, I am renewed, I am re-energized to serve, to love, to honor the purpose of my creation and to fulfill every single dream so help me God.

As you have said in His ears, so will he do. Numbers 14:28

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Authority To Forgive

“But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”
Mark 2:10

Sometimes when we read the scriptures to get insight we miss critical information that can and will transform our relationship, and ultimately our world.

It is a guarantee that offense will come. Luke 17:1. I get it that it’s not a relational sin that Christ is referring to here, however, the fact is we all can choose to forgive offenses.

We have the mind of Christ – 1 Corinthians 2:16, the mind that loves unconditional, right, it’s almost impossible to love if we do not know how to forgive eachother!

Lord, amongst so much choices, and free will you have given us, please help us to forgive offenses so that we can genuinely love unconditionally we pray in Jesus name.

Friends, let us exercise the power we have to forgive offenses. It will do us a whole lot of good, plus, it is the right thing to do.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with us all!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
