Self Assessment Drives Growth

Every organization in the secular world conduct assessment on all employees, it encourages individual self assessment, and promote continuous learning to drive self and process improvement for the sustainability of the organization.

I want to let you know that the Scriptures also encourages believers to assess themselves to drive repentance, growth and maturity as a witness to our inward transformation, and outward representation of our divinity.


“Brothers and Sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive rich welcome into the eternal kingdom” 2 Peter 1:10-11

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5

This piece is culled from The Magic of Thinking Big

Friends, when was the last time you examined yourself? When was the last time you conducted an evaluation of yourself to identify faith gap, unbelief, doubt, and outright sin in your life? It is what we know that is lacking in us that we will talk to our Father in heaven about, and get help with.

I know many of us see ourselves as perfect and has no room for improvement. We are just great the way we are eh? Yes! You are wrong if you think and act like this. The very wise know that what they do not know is so much more than what they already know, hence they listen more, ask questions, research, and observe more keenly, they learn, and take action to apply every knowledge gained.

You and I need to do a check up of ourselves friends, not to be critical of ourselves, but to identify where we need to grow, and repentance becomes easy when we realize our mistakes and shortcomings. Self assessment truly drives growth if you think about it.

Do the necessary checkup! Then talk to our helper about it!
Shalom!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

In Touch

Get Intouch With Your Humanity

In our own world, in our own safe space, we tend to lose touch with reality.

The suffering of others we begin to explain away, and gradually, we lose touch with our humanity.

See, you cannot really intercede for me if you are not touched by my infirmity.

Neither can you pray for me if you do not love me.

Find ways to care for someone outside of your immediate family.

I implore you friends to reconnect with your humanity! Look your neighbor in the eyes, and ask how are you, mean it by waiting for the answer!

Let’s find ways to be an extension of love!

Let me know any step you will take in your own little way.

DM me, let’s start the conversation.

Shalom!

Burden, Confession, Healing

Confessions is tied to healings. It’s God’s word, God’s way! Obey!

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

Is anyone still obeying this scriptures? Not so much I guess!

There are not many that can be trusted to keep confidential conversation secrets including ministers of the gospel! There’s so much lack of ethics and integrity in the institution! You end up hearing your matter from the pulpit!

Friends, May the Lord guide you to a godly burden bearer. It could be anyone, a total stranger could be what a friend of many years can’t be! Be led by the Spirit!

Shalom!

Prayer Does It!

Pray without ceasing!
1 Thessalonians 5:16 Be joyful always; 5:17 pray continually; 5:18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Pray without ceasing. Prayer does it always!

Shalom!

You Will Be Rewarded

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Read from Matthew 25:32-46

We all know the story of Jonathan and David in 1 Samuel 18 where Jonathan, heir to the throne of his father King Saul took a liking to David, a rival of sort, of his father and the throne. Jonathan ultimately died with his father, due to King Saul’s many sins and falling out of favor with Jehovah. David against all odds got to the throne and one faithful day, he remembered Jonathan. King David repaid Jonathan’s kindness to Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s sons – 2 Samuel 9:1-13

Ask, Seek, and Knock
Ask the Lord to remember all the good seeds you have sown. Lord let them begin to grow and give me a harvest of hundreds and thousands I pray. Amen

What am I implying? The Lord said seed time and harvest time shall never seize as long as the earth remains. Genesis 8:22. Good and evil remains and they both have consequences. The good you do and the bad you do, you will reap.

Christian’s in many denominations are often led incessantly to break curses, generational curses, ancestral curses, and so on that has been in their family due to the sins of their forefathers etc, without balancing it with request for heaven to repay the good that someone from this same lineage, generation past has done for and unto the Lord!

Many of us has store houses of bounties that the Lord want us to access, however, we are busy closing, and shutting the door of an empty room labelled curses that heaven has emptied out at our rebirth and the many times we have applied and pleaded the precious blood of Jesus!

This is where religion, and false preachers have kept many, in perpetual ignorance. Taking you on and off the same route and cycle of these activities and that activity without recourse. No wonder the scriptures says my people perish for lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6

Friends, Abrahams blessings are yours because you are his seed by faith- Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:7 understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham. 8 The scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”. So also, the blessings of past generation can be yours too.

And you, yourself have labored, you have sown some good seeds in fertile ground, you have fed the Lord, comforted the Lord, and you did clothed the Lord in that sister or brother you covered their nakedness – Please note that the Lord owes no one. He will repay your good deeds. You must however, remind the Lord, not that He forgets, however, you must ask that your reward comes speedily even as this year round up.

God will yet open that store house holding your reward IF you ask. Ask and you shall receive – Matthew 7:7. Psalms 65:11 says, God will crown this year 2020 with His bounty, and your carts will overflow with abundance. Amen

Confidence Walks Boldly!

There is a confidence you will have when you know that the Lord will never leave nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


There is a confidence you will have when you know He that watches over you neither sleep not slumbers. Psalms 121: 3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.


There is a confidence and assurance you will have when you know that the Power that raised Christ Jesus from the grave is at work within you. Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies  because of his Spirit who lives in you.

If you are Christ’s then you are an overcomer. Be confident of this!


Oh, there is a confidence that you will have when you know that no weapon of the enemy formed against you and all that concerns you will ever prosper –Isaiah 54:17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,”declares the Lord.


Friends, there is a way you will walk confidently when you know that there are angels station all around you, to guide you in all your ways. Psalms 91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

Unfortunately, many are ignorant and thus in bondage to lies! Many are been fed words that seemingly declare Jesus as the head over all principalities and powers, yet these words exalt Satan and his agent, being the Lord of this earth, all powerful, all seeing, and thus they are fearful of the elemental forces of darkness. Colossians 2:20  Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 


Friends, Jesus is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords – Deuteronomy 10:1717 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. Revelation 19: 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords. He is the head over all those forces of darkness that has or want to hold you in bondage. Colossians 2:10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.

You must break free from any and every form of bondage. Jesus Christ by His death on the cross, He did go down into Sheol and triumph over principalities and powers, Jesus made a public spectacle of the devil and rose up after 3 days, He showed Himself to many and then ascended unto heaven.
Jesus is seated in heavenly places above all these principalities and powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, the spiritual wickedness in high places that you fear and has kept you in perpetual bondage.

Jesus is from above- John 3:31 The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. And whatever is from above is above all! Believe this friends! You have been set free from bondage to fear-sin!

You will need to read the scriptures, the account of the life, death, and ascension of Christ Jesus for yourself! Trust every bit of what you read. It is the truth. Receive confidence in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ today in Jesus name I pray.
Shalom

The Eyes Tells Secrets

Luke 11:34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

The eye is the window to the soul I hear this very often. Also, what we see with our eyes is a pointer to the state of our soul.

You can see love by just looking into someone’s eyes or hate as the case may be. You can see sorrow and despair in the eyes without a single drop of tear. I have been seeing beauty in a different dimension since the Corona Virus changed our world. I will look at old wrinkly faces and see love, compassion, kindness, strength, gentleness, calmness, and can even imagine stories of what these eyes can tell.

At dinner on my birthday a few days back my son leaned over to me and he whispered she is beautiful mummy. I was taken aback and looked at him, asking how do you know, because the waiter had mask on. He responded, her eyes mummy!. You see, our eyes says so much more than we would like others to know about us.

Also what you see is a reflection of the state of your heart and soul. To many people, nothing looks beautiful to them. Everything is ugly, dark, and worthless. This is the state of their being and has nothing to do with the object of their sight/wrath.

To some everything is in $$$ sign, not that this is a bad thing. However, when every relationship, every alliance, every activity, action, reaction, endeavour, and opportunities are all in $$$ sign, that is a problem. This means mammon has taken over!

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com

To such people money is what dictates their love, friendship, kindness, alliances, interactions, respect, and regards. They can and will do anything for $$$. There profession of faith is directly proportional to their finances, and you are only as good a being as the amount of dollar they think you can bring, yield, or give to them.

I pray that we will all take note of what our Lord Jesus said, ” See to it, then that the light within you is not darkness – Luke 11:35; and pray for a renewing of our minds so our eyes can truly see Christ Jesus as He is, and His presence in the lives of the people around us.

Shalom!

Vulnerable? Grace Will Speak!

You must learn to keep your weakness between you and your Savior.

No matter how weak your flesh is, may the Lord strengthen you with might by His Holy Spirit in your inner man – Ephesians 3:16.

Your Spirit man need to be alert at all times, atuned to heavens frequency, or else you will become a shish kebab in the hand of the enemies of your soul! May the Lord shield His anointed. Amen

Lean on your Savior. Receive strength today in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Your bosom friend may have been waiting for that very day of your vulnerability to strike you down dead!

You must never forget the story of Samson and Delilah – Judges 16

Father Lord, every slimy snake lurking around, waiting and watching for us to slip so as to strike, may they wait endlessly.

Father let us never break the edge and give room for the serpent to strike in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom!
