You Are Known!

It was the will of God for Paul to be an Apostle of Jesus Christ according to the opening statement of the book of Ephesians chapter 1 verse 1

Ephesians 2 verse 10 says we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that God created in advance for us to fulfill.

This means God created Saul before the foundations of the world was laid according to Ephesians 1 verse 4. The book of Jeremiah 1 verse 5 also state that, before I formed you, in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Let me state this here for you: Before God formed you, I and Saul, now Paul in our mothers wombs, God knew us. Before we were born He set us apart, he appointed you, I and Paul as prophet to the nations! Wow! Isn’t this something? You can rest assured you are exactly where you ought to be! In God’s WILL!

Friends, the Lord knew you, had a plan for you, a path to walk through, and walk on. Believe it or not, every single detail of you life and mine are ALL for the glory of God’s holy name. The ups and downs, our successes and failures, the mistakes, the highs and the lows are ALL part of God’s plan to glorify Himself in YOU! Read John 9:3

Do you want to tell me God did not know Saul, now called Paul will be instrumental to the death of Stephen and other saints? God is Sovereign friends! He knows! And He works in ways we cannot simply understand. Ephesians 1:11 says God works out EVERYTHING in conformity with the purpose of his will.

This should encourage you to rejoice even now! You are in God’s will, walking the path He ordained for you, thriving, and flourishing like the cedars of Lebanon, proclaiming , ” The Lord is upright; He is My Rock and there is no wickedness in him”. Psalms 92:15

My message for you today is to trust in the plan of God for your life. In whatever situation and circumstances, ask God to give sight to your eyes so that you might see His mighty hands even in the bleakness around and in the sunshine all over you.

God is in the midst of you, you will not be shaken – Psalms 46:5

Shalom!

Peace Of Christ.

Many times over we run here and there, looking, searching for something, someone, an experience to satisfy our innermost cravings.

We search for that which has always been. The voice of the Spirit of life within us, for it has been with us before the foundation of the world was laid.

Resting In Christ Embrace.

This is the ultimate peace and joy, and it has ALWAYS been within us, and our reach if only we had learnt to listen, and pay attention to that inner voice.

The Spirit beckons you to come this moment. Lay your heart bare before your maker. Ask Him to touch you where no hands can. He’ll hold you close and give you His peace, peace like a river.

John 14: 27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Allow the peace of God to rule in your heart – Colossians 3:15

Peace of God that passes all understanding!

Only then will you finally find what you have been looking for within you.

Rest In The Lord, Confidence In Jesus, Hope of Ultimate Perfection, Assurance Of Salvation, Home In Your Savior, and Walk On Eternal Path amongst many.

The mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. -YOU

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU , THE HOPE OF GLORY.”
Colossians 1:26-27

Shalom!

Voices, Vices! Truth!

There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.

Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.

Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.

What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.

You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.

At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23

By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!

Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!

Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21

Shalom!

There must be an overhaul of the old in your life and mine, making room for the new. The Lord is doing a new thing!

You have been #transformed! From #glorytoglory- it is #continuous.

It Is A Gift!

If you’re a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your wages a gift.

But if you see that the job is too big for you, that it’s something only God can do, and you trust him to do it—you could never do it for yourself no matter how hard and long you worked—well, that trusting-him-to-do-it is what gets you set right with God, by God. Sheer gift.

Romans 4:4‭-‬5 MSG

This is Salvation, uprightness, righteousness, joy, peace, and much more like discernment, wisdom, beauty, contentment, and life itself is a gift! No amount of money can buy you those!

My Love Like No Other!

Declaration Prayer: Just Jesus – Answers for Life

Jesus is the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.

And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was whipped so we could be healed. This is my Jesus, Whom I love and serve.

Inspired By: Revelation 22:16; John 1:1-5, 14; Isaiah 53:2-5.

Strength, Like No Other!

I have enjoyed the goodness of God so much that I can’t but declare to you friends! The Lord is good. He is faithful and dependable. The Lord is my strength and my salvation.

Whatever you need is in Christ saving grace! You can count on God’s unfailing love!

In the fulness of Christ strength, his power and grace, I am lifted up! You are lifted up!

And you! Yes, you! You can be lifted up too!!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
