Speak To The King!

Judges 17: 6 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. This sentence was repeated three more times in the book. It means everyone made rules and lives by whatever pleases them per time. They were a law unto themselves, answerable to no one. No guidelines, no best practices, agreed to stipulations of how we ought to live, behave and serve God and others. The list goes on! So is chaos!

King here refers to leadership,  a supreme being, authority and to bring it down to this moment, for a man, a King is first God Almighty, Father – spiritual and biological, bosses, and anyone in authority above you.

A king to a woman represents God Most High first, husband if you are married, Father – both spiritual and biological, bosses and anyone in authority above you. To both sexes, then when there is no “King’, that is, when there is no one we are answerable to, that is when everyone does as they saw fit! We behave and act as we deem fit which does not necessarily mean good, bad or perfect, for you know our knowledge and perspective at best are one-sided and narrow often.

When we do not have the full picture of a situation, we bring tools we think is ideal to play. This most often will give temporary relief, but, to garner a long lasting solution and relief, knowing and having all sides of the issue tabled before us will enable us to proffer the best solution which is where the need for a “King” comes in.

The role of a King cannot be emphasized enough in a nation, life of its people and individuals. Therefore, be careful and prayerful! Only the King Eternal has the full picture of your life and He has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit to guide us. You must be answerable to God, the King Eternal and to those He has set over you. Only then, can you actually live to please Him that died for you 

In many instances, Kings have been the downfall of a nation and also the strength, prosperity, peace, and well-being of its people. The King then, that only good emanate from is the King Eternal. From the category of Kings, you have choices to make except in the King – biological father. All others then require you to seek the King Eternal’s input to make the best choice.

Have you been making wrong choices? Does it seem you cannot make right choice since all your choices have been “ish” afterward? Will you go to the King Eternal this moment? Ask Him to help you to make the right choices, not the choices based on your logic, but according to His will for you.

In organizations, we will say industrial best practices, which basically is a generally accepted way of doing things that give the best result superior to other means. Therefore, friends, let your next choice be made in line with the best practices, God’s best for you.

This brings me to this question! Have you given your life to Jesus Christ? I mean the King Eternal! Yes. Praise God! If you haven’t, today is the day to do that. You see, friends, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23! We all need a King, a Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ, be you a man or a woman, young or old! Jesus Christ died for us, let us live for Him! Repent of your sinful ways friend, accept Christ Jesus into your heart, confess Him as the King and Lord over your life. Speak to the King now!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

the lamb of GodThe Story Behind The Lamb of God.

Numbers 21:5-9 They spoke against God and against Moses, and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” Then the Lord sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against the Lord and against you. Pray that the Lord will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.

John 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.

All problem is associated with sin. There is a link between sin and fruitless effort, bondage and all sort of ills. Yet the Lamb of God made provision for us by His blood. Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Read John 5:2-14, Luke 5:2-14

Psalms 37:35-38 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree, 36 but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found. 37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. 38 But all sinners will be destroyed; there will be no future for the wicked.

Jeremiah 17:11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end, they will prove to be fools.

We have been exempted from sin and its consequence by the blood of the Lamb. Only if we confess and forsake all sin that easily befalls us. We must forsake sin and everything that is contrary to the will of God as contained in the holy scriptures. Accepting Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior making us joint-heirs with Him bestowing righteousness upon us. Psalms 37:39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lordhe is their stronghold in time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them because they take refuge in him.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Relationship – Cautiousness- Being Sensitive!

The children of Israel faced many challenges on their way to the promised land. They murmured, they rebelled and many fell in the wilderness. They were a difficult people to love! Nothing that was done was enough for these people, they almost made God change His mind about them being God’s special people – Exodus 32:10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.” .

At a point in the desert of Zin Miriam died and of course they mourned for her and then ran out of water. Oh! How Israel forgot all the wonders, signs and miracles God had wrought in their midst. They complained and murmured as usual against Moses and Aaron blaming them for all the woes that have befallen them. Then ……

slide_3Numbers 20:6 Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell face down, and the glory of the Lord appeared to them.The Lord said to Moses, 

The Lord saw the sorrow in the heart of Moses and Aaron and before they could utter a word in prayer God spoke to them just as He promised in Isaiah 65:24 Before they call I will answer;  while they are still speaking I will hear. Well, you may be wondering why God did not provide solution to the water crisis in the camp according to Isaiah 65! Israel did not ask, they did not speak to God, they were instead murmuring and blaming Moses and Aaron just like you and I does. Instead of talking to God about our situation, asking Him for solution, we ask why we are in the situation we are in, why us we ask very often. Why not us? 

However, what I want to point out is Moses and Aaron’s action. Remember before they spoke, the Lord answered them for their action spoke and the Lord saw their heart. Well, they had to “rob” it into the Israelite who got it wrong, whose action was contrary to the will of God. Moses and Aaron having been favored, in their obedience to the ways of God reacted untowardly to the Israelite, calling out their errors. In the process Moses struck the rock contrary to the commandment of God and this displeased God, causing both Moses and Aaron entering the promised land.

Friends, to whom much is given, much is expected! You have been forgiven much, favored much, for before you asked you received what others in much toiling and murmuring have not been able to receive. Don’t you think you should be gentle and empathetic? Do you have to call them out? Rob it in? Take a cue from Moses and Aaron and be careful with “Israel”, whatever Israel means to you. Do not forget to honor the Lord’s sacrifice for the life of His people. Every saint, every being is important to the Lord and as such we must be cautious how we represent our Savior Jesus Christ before them. Children comes to my mind here! Our children are watching us honoring God or not. Which will it be? Children here could be physical or spiritual – young ones, unbelievers, babes in the things of the Kingdom.

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelite, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.” – Numbers 20:12. 

Father Lord Almighty, have mercy on us and forgive us of all unrighteousness. Please show us the errors of our ways and redirect us to your ways, the path of righteousness. Create a right spirit within us and rekindle your fire within. May we not be stripped of the glorious future you have ordained for us. May we not stumble naked through life. Clothe us Lord with your righteousness as with a garment that your glory may shine in and through us to the uttermost in Jesus Christ mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Sufficient Grace!

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 

all inRunning this race requires grace. We live, breath and move by grace and the Lord has promised us sufficient grace to finish well. In whatever state or phase, at every and any given season, God’s grace is available and it is sufficient the Lord said.

The question then as asked in today’s devotion by Pastor E. A. Adeboye is “How are you living today?” As the alpha and omega of your life and others? Like Christ is not coming back as promised? Or “Can you take a stand for the Lord in righteousness and refuse to compromise with sin?” Are you so challenged that you want to cave in just to be accepted by the world and miss out of all that heaven has for you? Are you weary, burdened by the cares all around? God’s grace is sufficient for you friend! He that saved Daniel from the Lions den, also empowered David to face Goliath, He delivered Paul the apostle and He is very much available to save and deliver you from all the force of hell.

Will you reach out today. Call on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Jehovah the man of war. Let faith arise in you to take hold of all that is available for you in Christ Jesus. Grace will not let you fall, you will not fail, neither will you be put to shame. All expecting evil of you will see the Radiant Glory of God over you. You shall stand triumphantly over all evil in the presence of God Most High, the Ancient of Days, declaring, to Him who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb, be glory, honor and power forever. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Grateful To You Lord.

Isaiah 61:10 I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothes me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels

Grateful for your love and mercy Oh Lord. The Lord is good friends, His way is perfect. He knows all tomorrows and makes provision for our every need even before we need it. At every point He supply our need.

For waking you up this morning thank Him with a dance. Todays need has already been prepared for you so walk in it. Be expectant!! There are pleasant surprises at every turn. Look out for them.

Blessed And Highly Favored One!

I am blessed and highly favored. My blessings are way beyond been quantified in monetary terms. Yet, I am one of the richest people on this planet. I am blessed to have been chosen before the foundations of the earth was laid as a force of love and joy. I am very fortunate to come from the linage of royalty, astute and wealthy earthly being, successful by the standard of their time, yet humble. My greatest blessing is the knowledge of my heavenly heritage when my Savior, Jesus Christ sought me out, beckoning me to His kingdom as a choice possession, purchased at a precious price of His blood shed on Calvary’s Tree.

securedLook at me, just take a good look friends and see how blessed I am to have found faith so precious and true. Where will I be this moment without Christ grace and love freely given to me by faith?  What would have happened to me in the Lion’s den, the stormy seas and rough places?

Christ Jesus, His love, grace and presence makes a lot of difference in my life. I am who I am by His grace, a changed being, transformed and energized to live a fulfilling life pleasing He, who saved me all the way, with boldness, courage and faith that come what may, I will always be victorious, triumphing over every obstacle.

To be grateful and live for Christ is the least I can give to my savior this moment. Gratefully I praise God for saving me, working in me by His Holy Spirit to will and to act in order to fulfill His good pleasure concerning me.

Thank you Lord Jesus. I am so very grateful. All that I need and desire this season, I bring before you and ask according to your will that all these also I shall gratefully thank you for soon. That you will showcase your love, grace and power in my life and destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Ingrained Truth!

Oh that the magnitude of God’s love revealed might help me to know Who I really am! If only the reality of my status as a child of God, daughter of the Most High God can really sink into by subconscious. You know, for it to be permanently ingrained in every fiber of my being. Ephesians 1:4 For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. I am His before the foundation of the world was laid! Wow!

a27c6601-0da0-4ab5-ac39-f5e2f40df2a9Then I would walk in the fullness of what had already been wrought on my behalf. I would not be tossed here and there by the world and her ruler. I would stand strong in the capability of the Lord, unflinching and confident in the midst of chaos. I will speak peace be still and the element will respond with calmness. Oh that this truth of my being will permeate my conscious and subconscious mind!

You see friends, I am a Spirit being, encased in this physical body. I was with God before the foundations of the world was laid. He knew me way back then and He had me in mind when He was fashioning the world. The life I am living know, be it as it is, the Lord knew, every moment of it. Nothing that I have experienced is hidden from Him, nor that which is to come in any way shock Him. He knows already!!!! He has a plan for me! A plan for good and not evil, a plan to see me to an expected end of dominion, victory, and peace in all ramification.

Friends, will you draw near unto the Lord today? He has  the blue print of your life in His hands. Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…… says the Lord of Host. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. What a comfort? An honor and a privilege! Where else can you get this? Who else can promise you such? Who?

I’m gonna do myself a favor! I will enlist Him on my team, so I may enjoy all that pertains to life and godliness that His divine power has given unto me through the knowledge of Him who has called me by his own glory – 2 Peter 1:3 .

God knows the end from the beginning! Yield your heart unto the Lord today! Jesus loves you friends!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
