This Journey! Life

On a journey, any journey, you are bound to meet different people, all kinds, on the stops, along the way, in the same vehicle, or just passing each other bye.

Please my friend, learn to regard humanity in all. Be respectful, polite, and treat everyone as if they are dignatories, for they truly are!

Some, unaware have met with angels and have ill-treated them for they were not clothed in purple. Moses in Median, a prince of Egypt, but a wanderer in Median.

While some, weary and lost, have met others along the path and have been able to direct them through the path they have just come fought from, while seeking for the path home themself. This is being selfless! Giving from what you have, when you lack what you do need!

Just thinking, that hiccup may as well be as a result of how badly you treated that person you thought was a nonentity. What is he gonna do anyways? I will get away with it! Note that someone is watching, and will repay, with what you least expect! Do good!

The people of Sodom brought wrath upon their city when they demanded to do the unthinkable with angels, they saw as mere men. May we not bring wrath upon ourselves, generations unborn!

Father, henceforth, please help us to treat everyone the way you treat us, with compassion, love, kindness, and tender care we pray in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

I Charge You!! Pray!

So Peter was kept in prison, but fervent and persistent prayer for him was being made to God by the church. ACTS 12:5 AMP

It is sickening that the Church of this last days, do not pray for each other. How we have grown in the wrong direction baffles me.

These days, when we see brethren in bondage to sin, being persecuted, arrested by poverty, troubles, failures, and the likes, WE, the Church, Pastors and congregants alike point fingers, makes jest, insinuates demeaning remarks etcetera, about them.

We are charged by Christ to pray for each other, including those we perceive as enemies – James 5:16, Matthew 5:44

It’s even worst when snide remarks are heard from the pulpit!

Christians! Christ beloved and followers, please repent! We must start loving Christ genuinely by caring for His body, one another!

Just think about it friends! Will Jesus know a brother or Sister in need and not reach out to such?

Take a look around, how many people have you personally touched with kindness?

How many in your congregation, family, friends and acquitances have you shown kindness? Just being nice!!! I mean, this may be all that someone needs!

How about prayer? How many do you know struggling, arrested and in prison, enclosed about by poverty, lack, relationship woes, addiction, and the likes, have you earnestly prayed up?

This is what true Christianity is all about! Caring for one another enough to talk to the Father on their behalf positively.

I said positively because many would rather God takes some off the face of the earth so they can shine more, or covet what belongs to them.

Friends, I charge you in Christ name to pray for a brother or Sister you know or perceive may be going through an unpalatable situation.

Just do it and you’ll see how satisfying it is. Your Spirit man will confirm the heart of the Father and you will feel peace like never before.

Try it! It is liberating!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Generosity Expressed!

David, a man after God’s heart was a man thriving under the most severe circumstances. He was never reckoned with in his family, relegated to shepherd flocks and would have missed out of destiny but for the Lord’s call upon his life.

1 Samuel 16:8 Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “The Lord has not chosen this one either.” Jesse then had Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, “Nor has the Lord chosen this one.” 10 Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The Lord has not chosen these.” 11 So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.”Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”12 So he sent for him and had him brought in. He was glowing with health and had a fine appearance and handsome features.Then the Lord said, “Rise and anoint him; this is the one.”13 So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David. Samuel then went to Ramah.

be-generousDavid went on to face and kill Goliath 1 Samuel 17, he escaped death from the hand of King Saul and avoided traps set for him – 1 Samuel 20,21,22,23,24,25,26, pressed on every side so much so that he flee to the Philistines for safety- 1 Samuel 27:1 But David thought to himself, “One of these days I will be destroyed by the hand of Saul. The best thing I can do is to escape to the land of the Philistines. Then Saul will give up searching for me anywhere in Israel, and I will slip out of his hand.”So David and the six hundred men with him left and went over to Achish son of Maok king of Gath. David and his men settled in Gath with Achish. Each man had his family with him, and David had his two wives: Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail of Carmel, the widow of Nabal.When Saul was told that David had fled to Gath, he no longer searched for him. 

Philistines has been enemies of Israel from time immemorial, yet it was with Philistine that David found solace, albeit temporarily. David was prepared to fight against his people, the Lord’s people to show his loyalty to those who gave him comfort. He would have been fighting against his maker had he not been sent back by the Philistines warlord, he would have displeased the Most High God.

God in His sovereignty sent him back to Ziklag. Friends, while David in solidarity with the Lord’s enemy rose up to fight against Israel, he opened himself up for the enemy to come in and dispossessed him. Had he not been sent back from going to war in 1 Samuel 29:6-11, he and his men would have lost their family and possessions forever.

What are you engaged in that is contrary to the will of God? What proposition are you making to subvert justice? Have you risen up against the peace of another, prosperity and breakthrough, promotion, marriage, ministry, life and destiny? Are you placing hindrances on others path? A stumbling block? Repent today! Stop striving with your maker. Israel sinned against God and had judgement passed upon them. King Saul and his generation after him had been rejected by God. Their death is imminent through the hands of their enemies, but not in coalition with David, an Israelite, anointed by God to reign after Saul. It would have seem that David was executing vengeance even though he did not call for war. He was only showing solidarity, yet God who weighs the intent of the heart, worked everything out to prevent David from committing sacrilege. 

God was generous to David, his communion with God was not broken and hence he was able to inquire of the Lord, received instruction, acted upon it, met an abandoned member of the raiding party whom he showed mercy, and who ultimately led him to where all his possession was recovered.

David, being grateful for God’s mercy and generosity was then able to institute such among his fighting men as in 1 Samuel 30:22-31. Do you have such a heart friends? A merciful and generous heart! A heart that knows it is by God’s mercy, love and grace that we are who we are and as such are generous towards others in forgiveness, love, respect, honor, giving, sharing, encouragement, friendship, kindness,words etc!

Of such the Lord Most High seeks!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
