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!
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!! No doubt 2020 came with different kinds of unexpected issues and occurrences, yet we all triumphed and are better for it!
We learnt valuable lessons and are appreciative of the “simple things of life”, for we seem to have found out that those simple things are really the important things in life.
Well, this new year will be somehow different in that we have learnt a new way of being. We will all be just fine!
I am going to practice gratitude in all and every situation believing that God is Sovereign and will send just what He knows I can handle my way – 1 Corinthians 10:13. That is His promise! I believe it! So should you!
My expectation shall not be cut off this much I know! – Proverbs 23:18
Therefore, this new year, I will be looking out for a new kind of glory, honor, favor, joy, peace, contentment, advancement, increase, restoration, victory, goodness, mercy, and much more of all that pertains to life and godliness every waking hour!
Surely God’s goodness and love will follow me and you all the days of our life, and WE will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6
Ezekiel 33:7 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.
Friends, you and I are watchmen. If you see something wrong been perpetrated and you do not speak up against it, you are liable. There is danger in not sounding the alarm now more than ever. Read Ezekiel 33:1-6! Most especially telling the world about Salvation, the gift of Christ Jesus for as many as will accept it. This is the Great Commission!
You have been commissioned as a watchman to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all flesh , baptising them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for the remission of sins – Matthew 28:19.
Often, we lay emphasis on Mark 16:17-18And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
We neglect Mark 16:15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
As we walk majestically into this next newness, let us resolve to tell as many people as possible about the gift of Salvation that is ours, its freely given, gladly received, eternally worthy! It can be theirs also.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Covid 19 has revealed beyond a doubt the evil intention and wickedness of man, the thought of the heart, how murderous it can be.
Revelation 12:15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.
We have seen and heard of those with slight provocation or even without any, intentionally spitting on the face of others, knowing fully well they could be spewing the virus on a more vulnerable person.
We have heard of victims that died as a result of such encounter with the new weapon of mass destruction, a killer, a super spreader, a carrier infected with Covid 19 spitting virus over them.
I wonder if you ever thought of people speaking evil into the lives of others as evil, killers of lives and destinies! The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21.
Many on a whim spew out curses like rain, pouring out words from the deep seated wickedness, insecurity, pain and hurt in their soul on unsuspecting vessels. Matthew 12:35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.
Others go around dropping venom on every surface, any ears that is accessible, for the detriment of many forgetting that we all will be judged by every careless and evil words we spew out. Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.
Therefore, be careful of that which you feed your soul with as we prepare to walk into this new door of a new year that God in His infinite mercy is opening to and for you and I. Mark 4:24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued.
Be watchful, stay awake, pay attention, stay conscious of what you hear! Does it bring fear? Doubt? Demean you? Exalt Satan and his agent over Christ Jesus? Does it exalt any human in place of God? Does it convict you of your sins? Does it encourages the good in you? Does it inspire you to live a life that is worthy of your precious salvation? Does it glorify mammon? Does it make excuses for your life of sin? The words you hear and feed yourself on friends, does it strip you of human dignity?
We need to remind ourselves that God spoke the world into being! Words are powerful! Any avenue from which words are spoken to demean, discourage, abuse, and degrade you as a human being is not of God.
The whole purpose of the devil is to strip you naked of the Radiance of God’s Glory, he want to strip you of your identity as a child of God so he can rule over you as god! Satan will take over your mind, your free will subtly with the words he speaks to you. He is a master manipulator, a liar and a good orator! Read the temptation of Jesus Christ in the Books of the Gospels. You must resist the devil and counter his lies with The Word of God today as in this new year!
Flee from every appearances of evil – 1 Thessalonians 5:22. Don’t feed your soul with poison! It will kill ya! Feed your soul with the word of truth. Read the Bible and books that build you up. Edify yourself and others with the scriptures this new year. It shall be well with you and all that is yours in Jesus name. Amen
Revelations 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
The Lord is ever faithful, ever constant, and always present. He guides you always. Lean on Him!
