Fear Not! And Obey!

There are many ways that we stand in our own way. When God gives you instruction and you disobey it because of fear or whatever, you are standing in the way of receiving the blessings due for obeying.

Many time we are more concerned about what others will say, how we may be perceived by people that we do not deliver messages God gave us to deliver. Even though we’ve been told not to look at the faces. Yoruba say “eni ran ni ni se la un beru”. Jeremiah 1:7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LordYet, what do we do? We withhold information that will benefit others, some info that will protect another from harm’s way, yet more that will save lost souls from eternal damnation. We dilute our messages to tickle ears, to be politically correct. This is absolute disobedience, which has ended up standing in the way of our impacting the world!

Ezekiel 2: And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people. You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious. But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious people; open your mouth and eat what I give you.” What more do I to know? What further instruction do I have to receive in order to do the Masters bidding?

Acts 5:29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! Stop standing in your own way! Obey the Lord with speed. Trust Him to back up His Word! I mean you have seen God in action the few times you obey His instructions. Haven’t you? What will it take you to go all the way obeying God’s every instruction? Stop cherry picking, weighing it by what affects you personnally, will generate controversy and so on. Just obey the Lord and you will see the heavens open over you. The Lord is waiting on you and time wait for no one. Summon up courage and do the Lord’s bidding.

Be born again friends. You need a Savior, His name is Jesus Christ, He is waiting for you to call upon Him! Don’t keep Christ waiting!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Steadfast Love! Daily Renewed!

I was having small talk with a dear brother last night. We touched many topics and dwelt more on the joy of the Lord. I then proceeded to talk about the experiences I have been having that I needed more understanding about. You see friends, regardless of what was on my mind when I go to sleep at night, I seem to wake up with joy. I might have had issue that kept me up at night or bothered me before falling asleep and so on,  however when I wake up, it’s like the spirit of joy comes in, for whatever reason, right on the bed, I feel joy, even while I haven’t even said good morning to my Savior. I’ve asked myself, why am I joyful in the midst of some …. you get me?

PrintThe revelation I caught yesterday was that, as the Sun rises daily, it brings the dawn of a new day, new idea, insight, fresh burst of joy – ha ha! That is it, I said. It never did occur to me that way. That the Lord brings me fresh flow of joy, peace and love each day the moment He wakes me up to a brand new day! Isn’t that something? As long as it is called today, the Lord gives us opportunity to begin afresh, renew our strength and be reinvigorated to be all that we are meant to be.

So also as we end this year of God’s visitation, and embark on another, the year of the manifestation of God’s presence like never before, let us set aside every self made limitations, generational limiting factors, every form of bondage and hindrances. Let all belief of impossibility end with 2016 as 2017 rolls in with fresh burst of joy, peace, love, new ideas, new insight, courage, confidence, trust, unity, understanding, faith in The Word and much more.

psalm-13-32-sunset-god-who-arms-me-with-strength-and-mkes-way-perfectLay aside friends, all those issues of the past and get ready for the Lord as He unfolds His wonderful, excellent, beautiful and lofty plans for you and yours this new year. You will give birth to your dreams, your ideas shall take up wings, your land shall be fruitful this new year, abundance of all that pertains to life and godliness will locate you this year, you will mount up with wings as eagle, Oh how strong you will stand, your voice shall ring out with authority and the foreigners shall hear, tremble and come out of their hidden places, you shall speak and it shall come to pass, everything shall fall for you in pleasant places, as you thread down to ashes opposition, accusation, condemnation and every form of limitations.

The glory of the Lord is risen upon you friends, as the Sun rises up daily so shall fresh oil run down your head as you dwell in God’s presence. Make the feet of Christ Jesus your abode and experience what your minds is yet to comprehend.

Welcome dear one to 2017!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
