Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.

Understanding Birth Confidence

We must learn to read scriptures with understanding, by the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

It is this understanding that can help us to see that the words we read is meant for us. You and I will be able to appropriate scriptures to ourselves, our situation, and that of others and the world at large.

I am God’s little girl. My Father cares for me very much. Joan

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

I, Joan, God’s little girl, I am from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in me is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

An example of me reading 1 John 4:4 this way and meditating on it build up my inner man. Place your name where mine is and read it aloud. Repeat a couple of times. How do you feel?

When you read scriptures with understanding by the help of the Holy Spirit that gives understanding, you will begin to really have confidence in the one who saved you, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Only powerful, All Knowing, All Seeing, All sufficient God!

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!

Rebuilding Through The Word of God

Society needs to be rebuilt from God’s Word.

Excerpt from Dr Jonathan Murphy’s Sermon on
Rebuilding Through The Word – Nehemiah 8:1-12

Here we are taken back to basics. As believers we need the essentials from the book of life, the word of God to survive and to rebuild.

6 Essentials To Survive As A Believer

1. Believers must gather as one before God.  Our lives, families, society, and our world can only be rebuilt from the truth of God’s word. We must not forsake our gathering together like some do – Hebrews 10:25


2. Another essential is the need for God’s pulpit preaching Pastor. An expository preaching Pastor is required to rebuild the work of God in his people. The body of Christ need a slow cooking Pastor, cooked in the truth of the word of God

3. Believers must assemble and call for the book of the law of God. It means we should come expectant and demand to hear the truth from the book of God. We need to hold our Pastors accountable to bring forth the word of God. Enough of the merchandising, fables, and doctrines of man

4. As individuals, we must be attentive to the word of God. It is your responsibility to plough the soil of your heart to prepare to receive God’s truth. Your preparation will yield insight and transformation

5. You must then apply the word of God you have received in your life, which is your ministry. You must be doers of what you have heard from the word, only then can you be the Bible that the world will read and come to believe Christ is in your midst

Come out from amongst them and be ye separate

In order to effect a positive change in the world believers have to swim against the current – the political correctness, Idolatry, and all sort in our society demanding our conformity. We cannot be like the world, to change the world. We are in the world but not of the world.

You Will Shine Like Stars

When you have the assurance of salvation in your inward being, the word of God says such a person will shine like stars.

Just an encounter with the person of the Holy Spirit changes our countenance because God’s glory rubs off on us!

Read the account of the Samaritan woman in John 4. When she went back into the city to testify, she was glowing.

You cannot meet with the person of the Holy Spirit and remain the same! You must radiate the radiance of God’s glory! His beauty will permeate your being.

Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Amen

Love Reflect Christ

Time and time again the scriptures talks about loving God, and loving others as we love ourself. Truly, the mark of Christ upon your life is the love you have for His creation. Loving your wife, your husband, kids, siblings, parents, friends, and family is easy enough. But loving people you don’t even know and wishing for them good as you wish for your self is a step further and it can only be of God!

I must say that love is an anchor, for Christ Jesus is love himself. If you are a believer and you don’t give a shoot about anyone other than those closest to you, check yourself. You may be deceiving yourself and far from being Christ’s

Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. This is Jesus and he is LOVE!

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love of God in your heart will get you through any difficulty. You will overcome and triumph over all kinds of evil with love.

Love one another! Only love can heal the wound! Only Love can heal the world!

By this the world will know that you are my disciple if you love one another. John 13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love for one another, not only for those in your household, but for those from without, and even the so called gentiles and children of perdition.

The chaos we see in establishments here and there including the Church is because of lack of love. Ego, selfish desires, and ambitions can never reflect Christ’s love, rather it reflect the flesh in its unbrokenness, which is of the devil.

Friends, I pray the Holy Spirit will help you and I in this last days to reflect on our walk with Christ and go back to the drawing board to ask for forgiveness and grace to love as Christ loves us.

John 15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 

I must say without love in your heart, eternity will be far from you. Invite Jesus into your heart today. He loves you and gave himself for you. Ask Him In!

Shalom!

Kindness Is A Virtue

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

One of the fruit of the spirit is kindness.

As a believer, transformed by the word of God. One of the evidence of your transformation is that you will begin to bear this fruit- Kindness. You either have it or not. You cannot fake it for it has a fragrance of it own.

Pray that Christ’s love, grace, and Word will take root downward in you and bear the fruit of kindness upwards in your heart.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

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!

Settled Plan! God’s Plan!

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

Living The Word!

Souls are yearning for God, lost and disillusioned. You can make a difference only if Christ can be seen in you. This is why we must truly live the words we say!

James 1:22 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. 

This generation are smarter than the previous. They look to match what is said with what they can see you do. Action is said to speak louder than words.

Although the scriptures says go into all the world and preach the gospel – Mark 16:15-16, if what we do precede us, our words will not have the effect it ought to have. We must change this dynamics by living out the word!

Shalom!
