All In The Plan! Destiny Calls!

You know your life, destiny, and breakthrough depends on you following your passion – fulfilling the purpose for which you are created, serving God in spirit and in truth through the people in and around your life. You know the seed of greatness is planted within you, a burning coal, feisty roll of thunder looking for expression more and more. Zeal for the things of the kingdom burns in your soul. You know that you are in the will of God, you know that God is for you, well how come all hell seems to be let loose at every turn?

How come you face obstacles at every turn? Why are the very purpose for which you exist, your message, the recipients, the channel, and circumstances seem to be at loggerheads? Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Very often, you will look inward first if you are like most to examine yourself. You will look at You as a person! Who are you in your core? What do you believe you stand for? Why are you the way you are? What makes you tick? You will examine every aspect of your being. This process will bring so much revelation, your flaws, strengths, weakness, errors and so much more will be brought to your consciousness, and if you are like many that are true to themselves, you most likely will feel inadequate. Please do not dwell there!

If you dwell there, you will be giving a foothold for doubt of what has been written about you and the power of the Holy Spirit who is going to accomplish them in you.  The enemy of your soul will magnify your flaws and inadequacies to discredit what the Lord intend and has purposed to do in and through you.

Remember that God’s intention and will for you is not because of You, this isn’t about you, but all about what God is able to do in, with and for you. It is for His great name! Ezekiel 36:2222 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone.  Quit beating yourself and embrace the unconditional love of God. Do not take this love for granted though! Lean on Christ the Rock in prompt obedience. Stop been afraid! Look unto Jesus!

Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

You are fulfilling purpose even now more than you know.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

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!

Even Faith!!!!!

Oh that my faith will grow that I may have wings to fly! Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is an absolute for every believer to reach their highest potential, receive from the Lord and fulfill God given destiny.

hebrew-11In Matthew 8:2A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy”. Jesus is willing and able to make us clean. He wants so much to beautify everyone of His brethren. The question then is, are you willing to be clean? The man with Leprosy desired to be make clean and asked for it! Are you desirous of been made whole? Ask Jesus for it!

Simple faith in the capability of The Word to reach and transform our lives is paramount to receiving from the Lord. The Centurion man exhibited great faith by believing that just the word spoken by Christ is able to reach his sick servant at home – Matthew 8:8. What then is that situation that has been, and not palatable in our lives? Have faith today in The Word, speak the Word in Jesus name and the situation must change. Be unwavering in your faith, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Believe that all things are possible with Jesus Christ in your camp. The Word works my friends, it works wonders every time applied with faith in line with the will of God. Jesus drove out the evil spirits with a word and healed all the sick. He will do same for you today. Call upon Jesus!

One other thing you must realize friends is that Jesus Christ, God made flesh went through storms. He got into a boat and a furious storm came up on the lake, presumably to swallow up destiny – Matthew 8:24. Jesus experienced storm, how much more you and I friends, be assured though that no storm can overcome us as long as we have Jesus in our boat.

Do you have Jesus in your boat? Are you born again? Have you invited and accepted Christ into your heart? Do you trust Jesus with your life, the life He gave you? Your faith and trust in Christ will enable you to ride through every and any storm triumphantly. There is power in the Word of God!!!!! Jesus spoke to the wind and waves and it was completely calm. He will speak to your and my situation today! Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Resolute Faith!

 

Faith in God! Faith in The Word! Had it not been this tiny weeny faith that I have, that you have by His grace. I, we most likely would have forgotten who I/we was/were, who I am/you are, and who His love is making me and you to become from glory to glory. Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Hebrew 11 Faith: By Faith We Understand! Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”;  for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Like Joseph, who shared his dream with his brothers and was hated. His Father, with all the love and lofty plans He had for all his children could not imagine that this little child will one day be mightier than Him he must have thought. Bow before Joseph? That can’t be, it is unheard off. Genesis 37:1 to end. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” 11 And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind.

You my friends might have shared your dreams with family and friends. No one would dare to share their dreams with known foes! None would dare to do that. We most often share our lives with people of like minds, family, friends, and those of the household of faith. Please note that dream killers abide everywhere and will not hesitate to call day night and night day. The wicked one will use every available vessel vacant and willing to discourage, distract and convince you to discard your dreams and from being your transformed self. You will be stripped, sold out by “trusted” allies, blackmailed and wrongfully convicted and sentenced in order to kill that dream, your great destiny, planted by heaven in your heart.

Folks remember how things played out? It always plays out that way when it is backed by heaven. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Life matters will work hand in hand with your ordained destiny only by total faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It does not matter how long it takes or seems to be taking, trust the process and the path like Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Peter and many more! Lean not on the arm of flesh for it always fails. Let your faith be aligned with Christ Jesus alone!  Many have leaned on “Pillars”, looked up to like minded people of faith and have been shipwrecked. Look up to Jesus Christ the author and finisher of your faith. Be encouraged friends, the Lord is on your case! Relax!!!!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Without weakening in his faith, Father Abraham faced the fact that his body was as good as dead- since he was about a hundred years old – and Mother Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God and being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:19:21

Friends, hope against hope, believing that every word written in the scripture that you have received into your spirit is a promise from God and it will be fulfilled if you believe. Trust God!

Shalom! Shalom!

True Seekers Yearning For God!

Naaman, a Syrian General came to Israel. He was leprous and received a miracle that transformed, not only his flesh but his heart. He realized that the God of Israel is the only true God and makes up his mind to serve him alone. The problem Naaman has is that his boss, the King of Syria worship counterfeit gods and been the King’s right hand, he goes to the temple with the King, Lord when the King bows down to his god holding my hand and I seem to bow down, please note that it is not intentional and forgive me, Naaman prayed. Read 2 Kings 5:1 to end for clarity.

2 Kings 5: 17 So Naaman said, “Then, if not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth; for your servant will no longer offer either burnt offering or sacrifice to other gods, but to the Lord. 18 Yet in this thing may the Lord pardon your servant: when my master goes into the temple of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow down in the temple of Rimmon—when I bow down in the temple of Rimmon, may the Lord please pardon your servant in this thing.”19 Then he said to him, “Go in peace.” So he departed from him a short distance.

miracleThe miracle, signs and wonders unbelievers are meant to see amongst believers, testifying to the goodness of God in our lives are not happening because of many things and the fact that we are standing in the way. We are hindering the move of the Holy Spirit with strife, unholy living, envy, all kinds of wickedness, insubordination, Lording it over ourselves that the Holy Spirit has taken the back seat in our lives and congregation.

There are a lot of Naamans out there, they have heard about the awesomeness of Yeshua and have come in troops, they have journeyed far and wide against tides and perils. In our midst what are they seeing? What are they hearing? The truth of the gospel undiluted and spoken with passion for God’s Will devoid of self marketing and schism?.

Naaman heard about the God of Israel, he journey over and ultimately met with the Lord. He received healing and enlightenment. He was transformed outside in, inward out and declared no other god but the God of Israel. Are we making that effect? Is lives been transformed? Are people really having the conversion experience? Or are we just concerned about the transformation of the bank accounts? Well, that is outwards, that is what eye can see right? What about the heart?

The Lord is waiting for you and I to get our acts together, to position ourselves strategically to receive fresh grace for this season. Now is the time to realign ourselves with the undiluted Word of God in Spirit and in Truth. Enough is enough of distractions and schemes of wickedness rampaging our community. Stand firm and resist, obey the Word of God, the Voice of Wisdom and Grace.

Take action commensurate with the grace received and see the manifestation of God’s power in your life and others. Do not be a Gehazi bent on resisting the Word of God, whose greed and lies took charge, overshadowing the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

Shalom! Shalom!

These Times!

These are the end times. The days are evil friends. The good is termed evil and the evil is coloured good. Evil is sitting in the place of good and injustice abounds. We have already been warned and the onus is for every bible believing Saints to watch and pray, holding unto our confession of faith.We must not allow the filth all around us to have a place in our hearts. Deceptions will abound, false prophets will arise but we have to get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in us, which can save us – James 1:21 

Blaise-Pascal-truth-is-so-obscure-in-these-times-45114James 1:22-27 Personified and brought home. We must not merely listen to the word of God, and so deceive ourselves. Rather we must do what it says. 23 Anyone of us who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law (of Loving God, loving oneself and loving others as oneself) that gives freedom, and continues in it, obeying and living by it —not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

26 Those who consider themselves pious, religious-in the light and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, they reveal their folly by the multitude of their egocentric words and their religion is worthless.27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world- keeping pride, selfishness, anger, deceit, gossips, envy, and all sort away, at arm’s length.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name, may your kingdom come upon us and your will be done. Lord have mercy on us and lead us by your Holy Spirit. Enlighten the eyes of our understanding that we might see wondrous things in your word and live by it. May your word take root downward in our hearts and bear fruits outwardly in Jesus name. May we experience transformation like never before. Let your Words root out every unprofitable shrubs in our hearts, that we might bear fruits for many to eat thereof . We ask and receive in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen!!

Shalom! Shalom!

No Stopping Him! The River Walk

In the many signs and wonders in my own life that I have witnessed, I know for sure that there is no stopping me.Christ is still working miracle through this earthen vessel. I remember almost 15 years ago, I had just had a baby, and in my six weeks postpartum it was discovered that I had a mass. I was scheduled for an ultrasound but before the scheduled day, I was rushed with severe pain into surgery, I couldn’t sign a waiver myself, my brother in law did. It was scary for they had found ovarian cyst on both ovaries pushing against every organ sending excruciating pain all over.

It was a terrible time but what follows can only be the hand of Jesus Christ of Nazareth at work. An ovary was removed and the other left to give me an opportunity to have more children should I want more. Friends, this was in Columbus, Ohio! I kept praying that God was able to replace that ovary and He did. Ask me how? Years after in Canada, I went to different hospitals and did several scan and no one believed my story of an ovary been removed, though the scars are there. Jesus had replaced it Himself. The recreative power of God at work in me. I have since gone through a lot of health scares and Christ Jesus kept proving Himself time and time again as my healer. Hormonal imbalance that would have stopped others having their monthly’s kept my cycle on schedule. I am indeed a wonder! The Lord has been very good!

Friends, as long as there is breath in your nostrils know that the Lord is at work in you. Fight the good fight of faith and give no room to the devil and his agents. They abound everywhere, to discourage and malign the presence of God in your life. Resist and stand fast for a notable miracle is been done in and through you. Look back and you’ll realize, you have really come along way. Rejoice friends and be glad, YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!

Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. Then the leading priests and Pharisees called the high council together. “What are we going to do?” they asked each other. “This man certainly performs many miraculous […]
