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!

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!

Selfless Love! Interceding!

Mark 2:4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, ” Son, your sins are forgiven.”

Oh friends, pray for the Lord to make you a friend, that will bring another’s matter before Jesus, even if you do not get to bring yours before him.

These friends have their own issues do you know? Of course, they do, for they are human, however, they put their issues aside to lower this man.

To lower down or up your friend before Jesus takes a lot of selfless love. It is this kind that can build up faith and transform lives as this man’s life was transformed. He became a reference point unto all eternity. And these gentlemen? They have crowns of gold and for sure their generation is still living even today.

This kind of love is not common, except bestowed by the Holy Spirit. May the Lord bestow such love on you and I in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Voices, Vices! Truth!

There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.

Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.

Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.

What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.

You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.

At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23

By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!

Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!

Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21

Shalom!
