The Lord is Sovereign, what He says He will do will be done. You cannot stop Him, hinder him, maneuver Him, or manipulate God!
The sooner you realize this the better for you. Realign yourself with the purpose of God’s will today. Seek His face while He may be found! The Lord Reigns! Halleluyah!
Make the Lord your priority! He is all that count! Selah!
Psalms 47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. 7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. 8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.
Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Education, intelligence, and wisdom should be employed to solve problems, create solutions and opportunity for dialogue, reformation, peaceful transition and positive transformation for the good of all.
In spiritual settings, skills, giftings, talents, and graces – the capability to harness and employ education, intelligence, and wisdom in services for the good of all should likewise be channelled to solve problems for people, create solutions, and opportunity for growth, reformation, transformation, and inspiration!
Be careful therefor of what you listen to! 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.
Negative rhetorics can erode your capacity to think and make good judgement
When faith in that Spirit which existed in people, that the Spirit of the Almighty has revealed as a result of these people giving the Holy Spirit room in their lives, is gradually being chipped away by the very medium through which they heard these words of liberation, the zeal and spark dies, get corroded, or at best lay dormant and useless for the good causes it is created to be applied to.
It however, is used as we see in the Capitol, to oppress, depress, suppress, and intimidate! This is counterintuitive don’t you think?
As a society then, blessed and highly favored, we must lay aside the sins that easily beset – ego, selfish ambitions, greed, and all kinds of evil that have dominated our lives and gatherings, to embrace repentance, reformation, and graciousness.
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 13:13And 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.
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.
It is so unfortunate that when Godly wisdom, truth, diplomacy, love of God, others, and of Country is needed most in the World, the custodians of virtues- Religious Leaders had non handy. We seem to have gotten used to the rottenness all around and decency was far gone. Non existence!
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
James 3:16For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 4:17 He who knows what is good and right to do, and does not do it, to that person, it is a sin. SIN!!!!!!!!!
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
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.
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
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!
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!
