Who Am I? Who?

Thank you Lord for waking me up this morning I said to the Lord as the day started. Something is missing though, I thought to myself. Where is that bubbling joy that comes at the breaking of day? Why are you cast down Oh my soul? Hope thou in the Lord and He shall sustain thee.

I kept wondering and worrying about my state of mind and this song came up. It hugged me like the warm embrace of strong hands. I am His, I am the Lords! He has never been far from me, though in my thoughts, I have kept Him at arms length, yet the Lord stayed close for that moment that I will need His hands to hold me up, like this moment!

“Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth would care to know my name, would care to feel my hurt? Who am I, that the bright morning star would choose to light the way for my ever wandering heart?

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again? Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea would call out through the rain and calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am, but because of what you’ve done, not because of what I’ve done, but because of who you are!” Who Am I – Casting Crown Lyrics

Thank you Lord for always been there for me. When all else fails, you remain constant, unchanging and loving me through it all!

Love you Lord Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Be Still!

The Latter Rain! God’s Favor!

Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withheld, And there has been no latter rain. You have had a harlot’s forehead; You refuse to be ashamed. The bible says that righteousness exalt a nation and sin is a reproach to it. The presence of Ahab in whatever form in our lives has prevented us from experiencing the Latter rain, however the Lord has purpose to help us according to His loving kindness, not that we deserve it less we boast thereof. This is the time of our favor friends! Psalms 102:13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. 

FB_IMG_1464023232141We therefor must repent of all our sins and seek the face of the Lord with all our hearts in spirit and in truth. God has promised that if we seek Him with all our minds, we will find him. Let us therefore come close to the Lord so He can come close to us. Hosea 6:1 Come, and let us return to the LordFor He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LordHis going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

What are the promises the Lord has given you according to the scriptures? Go over them one by one in prayer and see it manifest in your life if you doubt not. Zechariah 10:1 Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.

Joel 2:23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.

James 5:7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Hold unto the promises of God with all humility for only God is able to do abundantly, exceedingly, far above what we could ever think or imagine.

Come and be blessed at the International Convention Center on June 10th 7pm prompt under the ministration of Pastor E. A. Adeboye as Sinach ushers us into God’s presence.

Trials of Faith! Examined Life!

soctratesThe unexamined life , here I believe refers to a life that has not been tested by adversary. I mean the kind of trials and tribulations that come to man like a tsunami. Trials that turns your life upside down, touching every area of your life and yet you are still faithful and loyal, joyful and rejoicing in hope, holding on and trusting God all the way! Every male will proclaim their manhood, but only when wrestling, fighting comes do we know who a man is – African proverb. The weakling will run when confronted with war, but the brave will stand the test.

When your imagination run wild and you become fearful of discomfort and you are incapacitated, what will happen when you actually confront the unspeakable betrayal of trust, loss of almost everything dear to your heart (Thank God for LIFE). When your core is shaken out of joint, what will you do? How will you react? Jeremiah 12: 15 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan? 

It sure is easier to speak from the place of comfort, that’s right! Than a battlefield, in the midst of devastation, pain and uncertainty.

“”Faith, by its very nature, must be tried, and the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that Gods’s character has to be cleared in our own minds.”.“Trials of faith are difficult to bear: for they cause heaviness or depression of the mind.” Faith in it actual working out has to go through spells of isolation.Never confuse the trial of faith with the ordinary discipline of life. Much that we call the trial of faith is the inevitable result of being alive. Faith in the Bible is faith in God against everything that contradicts Him – “I will remain true to God’s character whatever He may do”. “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him” – this is the most sublime utterance of faith”” From the Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye Volume 16, 2016.

Dearest ones going through any form of trials, please note this passage,read and meditate on it.  Hebrew 10: MSG 32-39 Remember those early days after you first saw the light? Those were the hard times! Kicked around in public, targets of every kind of abuse—some days it was you, other days your friends. If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seized your goods, you let them go with a smile, knowing they couldn’t touch your real treasure. Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back. So don’t throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It’s still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. It won’t be long now, he’s on the way;  he’ll show up most any minute.But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy.But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.

May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding flood your hearts and mind.  I pray that the Lord will strengthen you in your inner man, by His Holy Spirit, that Christ might dwell richly within you so you might know the hope for which you have been called in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom
