Life’s Test: Pain, Loss, Heartaches

When a man suffers misfortune, and loss, that is when you really know who your friends truly are. And how Christianly many speaks but do not act! Many will say very unkind words to you, treat you unkindly, gather others around them to speak more evil of you. And spread untruth about your situation!

Salt will be added to your injuries. This is the experience of brother Job, and many brothers and sisters even today.

Job 16:19 Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. 20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;

“The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the wern and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken
They conquered death to bring me victory”

Test will come in life. Our faith, love and hope in the Lord will be tested! This is a guarantee, however my prayer for you is that you will not sin against God in your speech. Don’t lose faith!

Brother Job knew he was blameless, he could not understand why what happened to him happened, yet he had hope in God. But his friends? They were a whole lot different from what he expected. No word of encouragement or comfort but accusations.

This here sounds more like Job thinking, trying to justify what is happening to him, finding no cause, and must have blurted out Job 16:17 yet my hands have been free of violence and my prayer is pure. I mean Lord! You know me! Why all these?

Brothers and sisters suffering any kind of loss, heartaches, or contrariness of life. Please note that God is Sovereign, He knows what you are going through and He will give you respite.

I pray God’s strength be made manifest in your weakness. May His love envelope you. May the light of His countenance warm your heart. God is God on the mountain, as He is God on the valley, hills, plains, and rough places. He is Sovereign! And He cares for you!

Be comforted friends as brother Job was and said in Job 16:19 Even now your witness is in heaven; your advocate is on high. 20 your intercessor is your friend as you pour out your fears, heartaches and tears to God.

Shalom!

Infect Your World!

That little light in you need to shine – “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven – Matthew 5:16

Therefore, resolve to infect your world with your light, your joy, your kindness, your peace, and love.

Let the radiance of God’s glory in you show forth to the praise of His holy name. The world need more sunshine!

Discouraged? Hold On!!!!

Yes! Really? That's great!
Yes! Really? That’s great!

Friends are you discouraged? Does it seem like nothing makes sense? Are things the way they should be or does it seem your world is upside down? Hold on! It is about to change for the better and the glory of God’s name. Your destiny is been fulfilled right before your very eyes.

You see friends no word of God will come back to Him void. Everything is going according to heavens agenda. Hiccup? Don’t panic, God is about lifting up a Jehoiada in strength and zeal for the fulfillment of God’s plan and purpose for your life. Relax!

Athaliah Reigns in Judah 2 Chronicles 22

10 Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal heirs of the house of Judah. 11 But Jehosheba the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him away from among the king’s sons who were being murdered, and put him and his nurse in a bedroom. So Jehosheba, the daughter of King Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest (for she was the sister of Ahaziah), hid him from Athaliah so that she did not kill him. 12 And he was hidden with them in the house of God for six years, while Athaliah reigned over the land.

Athaliah, the Kings mother you would think would ensure her late son has an heir to sit on the throne! I thought so too, but alas consumed with rage and wickedness, she proceeded to kill the entire royal family of the house of Judah.

She was an agent of the devil sent to prevent David having an heir to sit on the throne forever before God as He has promised. Jesus was ordained to come through the lineage of Judah – David, so the Kings mother planted by Satan in the royal family set out to thwart God’s plan.

2 Chronicles 23: 1-end Joash Crowned King of Judah

23 In the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and made acovenant with the captains of hundreds: Azariah the son of Jeroham, Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, Azariah the son of Obed, Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri. 2 And they went throughout Judah and gathered the Levites from all the cities of Judah, and the chief fathers of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem. 3 Then all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said to them, “Behold, the king’s son shall reign, as the Lord has said of the sons of David. 4 This is what you shall do: One-third of you entering on the Sabbath, of the priests and the Levites, shall bekeeping watch over the doors; 5 one-third……..

Do you get it now friends? The repairer of broken covenant/ walls is on your case!. That which was meant to steal, kill and destroy your destiny is making room for the fulfillment of your God ordained destiny.

A Jehosheba and Jehoiada are on your case. Your concern right now should be to align your heart with heaven by positioning yourself to be blessed. You will fulfill your God ordained destiny!

All the storm’s buffeting you here and there were meant to push you into your destiny. You would not have been a willing participant anyways! A mighty hand was employed to prepare, prune and tend your heart to be able to stand. Stand you will with courage!!!!!

You were created for a wonderful purpose, don’t be discouraged.

Can you see yourself walking in that destiny? Envision yourself mounting on wings like eagle, treading on your high places, mountains and hills are been made low before you, water is coming out of the rock at your command. Can you yet see it? Is it getting clearer? Great! Rejoice and be glad working out your salvation with fear and trembling.

If you cannot see it friends, then you need to come to the light of Him who sees everything! Jesus Christ our Lord! You have to acknowledge your sin and your need for a savior.  Roman 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 5:12 But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

Repent therefore of your sins, believe in the Lord Jesus, confess His Lordship over your life and you will begin to see clearly in the light of His word.

Be rest assured friends that He who promised is faithful to accomplish all that He says. It is already settled in heaven so rejoice and be glad. You are highly favored!

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Greatness untapped – Help Holy Spirit!!!!!!!!!

It is said that the greatest enemy of greatness is distraction. Distraction will make you lose focus of what is important, it will create doubt, unbelief and confusion the cost of which are – the list is unlimited:

step upA bestseller novels, books, and journals not written
A #1 on the chat album not released
An impact, positive influence in your family, community, society and globally
A powerful move of the Holy Spirit through you to jump-start a revival
A Grammy for best picture movie not made
A successful growing business empire not built
A much-needed/anticipated medical solution not researched / discovered
A beautiful love / life not nurtured, not shared
A home family not built
A child not given birth too
A friendship not sustained
A marriage not enjoyed
A career / business not built
A vision and revelation not pursued and prayed into manifestation
An endless mirage of might have been

Please prayerfully put a system in place to help you, something or someone who would channel you back to the original plan when you set out from heaven. Who better to do this than the Holy Spirit of the Most High God. You can draw up a plan, have sticky notes all over your house, car and office, alarm set for every hour on your cell.

Without conscious discipline distraction would still find a way through. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in. He is the spirit of truth and guides us into all truth. Will you let Him help you to stay focused on what is important, what is necessary to your walking in victory as ordained of God?

Friends, will you jump into the moment? Acknowledge that you cannot do it all alone and that you need His help, confess, repent, forsake all known sins –  God is too holy to behold unrighteousness no matter how little we perceive it. Receive the righteousness of Christ Jesus and cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, let Him abide in you and with you.

Take this lifetime opportunity to build on the Rock, the immovable Rock of ages that never fails.  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever world without end.

Encouragement and Exhortation

Encouragement and Exhortation

Psalm 139:13-18 NIV

13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, i know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you when i was made in the secret place, when i was woven together in the depths of the earth.

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand – when I awake, I am still with you.
