Dear friends, family, and acquaintances, I am graduating from the Fearless Speaking Academy!
I will really love you to hear me speak for the first time as a Fearless Inspirational Speaker on stage with the likes of Warren Ryan, Sir Marco Robinson, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian and my fellow Speaking Graduates!
Just a few weeks ago, I started the journey of becoming a fearless speaker – an authentic and inspirational speaker. Here I am about to take the stage with seasoned speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson and others. You can get your tickets here http://bit.ly/FearlessspeakingJoanSanusi
I met with Warren Inspire Ryan and a host of other learners on this journey. We built a community from all over the world of like minded collaborators, collaborating in ways that I never knew was possible. We became a family and a few of us have met physically too.
We also plan to have a speaking tour of our world together very soon. At the moment, we have our Fearless Speaking Event coming up on June 25, 26, and 27th. It is a virtual event where all of us will share the stage with Seasoned Keynote Speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson, and others.
I invite you all, friends and family to come and support your very own Joan Sanusi by getting your tickets and get some for your friends and acquaintances. Make it a date to support and cheer me and my teammates on as we step on world stages to make impact.
I implore you to to examine your perspective to life friends. Your joy, happiness and fulfillment depend greatly upon it. There is no wrong or right way, it all depend on what kind of life you want to live.
You see friends, a barren woman, after being ridiculed year after years, praying, and waiting for a miracle finally had a son. Congratulations! Wonderful you will say right? Well, that is great! However, this woman made an observation and it reflected in her prayers. This got me thinking!
You see, Hannah was her name. She finally got a child. Fantastic! She went on a frenzy praising God and so on. She noticed that someone was not happy and made mention of that person.
There are many people with truck loads of blessings that are still miserable. You wonder why? I mean, look at the statistics of people sad and with depression all over. It is alarming. And this in advance nations with seemingly everything, comfort, care, safety. and abundance!
Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry are hungry no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.1 Samuel 2:5
You see Hannah? She saw possibilities in that one son she has. She made a pledge even before conceiving that if God answers her prayers, she would give that child back to him. She knows that whatever is given to the Lord multiplys! Peninnah on the other hand has had many sons and never felt it necessary to give one back to the Lord. The moment Peninnah saw Hannah rejoicing for that one thing she has been blessed with, her own sorrow began.
Perspective is key to your happiness friends. The bible says rejoice with those who are rejoicing – Romans 12:15. You need to know that someone’s joy, gift, blessings, rejoicing etc is meant to evoke same in you, it should remind you of God’s faithfulness to you. It should remind you to thank God, not to start comparison which many times leads to being miserable.
Why should someone’s happiness cause you grief? You have been comparing yourself and marking that list in your mind right? Taking stocks of what you have that the other person does not have? This is the only thing that has been giving you joy? You need to stop! The fact that someone is lacking in an area that you are blessed with has been your only joy? Repent!!
Change your perspective. Stop comparing yourself.You are unique in more ways than you know. And the Lord has blessed you and will bless you more than you could ever think or imagine.
The devil created nothing except chaos. He created no being!. The creator is the Most High God, the Almighty, All, Knowing, All Seeing God. And He created YOU
Therefore, in reaching out to the world, I must let them know of this fact. The Almighty created everyone, and there’s NONE too far lost that cannot be saved. You belong to God already. Psalms 24:1 He is willing to bring you home where love reside.
I mean, until you and I, as Christians stand and speak from this premise, the love of God cannot be shed abroad in our hearts. Romans 5:5.
I know God loves me despite and inspite of me, and he loves me before I acknowledged Him as Lord. God made me fall in love with Him. I love Him now because He first loved me. 1 John 4:19
I need someone to know that you are unconditionally loved by God. You only need to acknowledge His love right now.
Friends, acknowledge God’s love for you. That situation could have been worst you know?
God’s love saved you, made a way of escape, healed you, encouraged you, gave you hope and is preserving you this moment, making room for you to acknowledge Him. Don’t let this moment pass by.
Speak to Jesus from your heart. Ask Him to help you to see Him as He is. Romans 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith, your believe in Jesus that you are saved.
As many as received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in His name; John 1:12
There are so much that God want for you, and much more that He desires from you. God want you to know He loves you even before the foundation of the earth was laid.
God made provision for you through His son Jesus Christ. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. He desires for you to believe and accept this love. It is real!
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.
Your loving Father has great plans for you as the above scripture stated. You however have to lean into God and His plan faithfully to be all you can be for your creator. Accept God’s love for you through Christ Jesus who died on the cross in your place. Open up your heart today, invite Jesus in as your Lord and Savior.
You will however be doing your self a favor by putting your faith into action – strategically invest in your own success.
God desires you to be proactive about His plan for your life. He is Sovereign and will fulfill the plan He has for you. Whatever dreams you have is attainable and fulfillable only in Christ Jesus! Yield your all! Embrace the love of God!
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you – Philippians 4:13
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
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
You are the Church built not by human hands. I Joan, I am also the Church, built not by human hands! Acts 7:48. Christ Jesus lives within us by His Holy Spirit.
You and I ought to be able to see ourself in the Scriptures. The Spirit of the living God takes up residence in us as believers.
You should have the witness of the Holy Spirit confirming with your Spirit that you are the child of God, and joint heirs with Christ Jesus!
Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Please put your name in the below verses of scriptures and read it aloud. Meditate on it! Let it go into your subconscious mind! Believe this👇👇 truth friends!
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you (I,Joan) who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our (My) peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you ( me, Joan) who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. 19 Consequently, you (I, Joan, am) are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
1 Peter 2:4 As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him–5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
I just have to say it out loud again: my assurance and confidence booster.
I am Joan, and like a living stones, I am being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Hallelujah 1 Peter 2:5
The above scriptures assures me and it should assure you also that you are in good hands. You are in God’s hand being built up, everything about you is dynamic, growing, metamorphosing, transforming, becoming who you were before the foundation of the world was laid. Wow!
There is a confidence you will have when you know that the Lord will never leave nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6Be 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; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 6 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.
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 54:17no 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 2:20Since 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 2:10and 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 3:31The 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
