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!

Restrained Hands! The Lord’s Mercy!

Nabal’s response of disgust towards David was deserving of commensurate action by David. Read 1 Samuel 25

However, David’s intention was more severe, though justified from many angle except the divine. Thank God for the quick intervention of Abigail, who the Lord used to restrain the hand of David from shedding innocent blood.

The Lord used Abigail, a human for David, I wonder who, or what the Lord uses presently to restrain His children from sinning? Abigail was like a conscience for David, a mirror reflecting his intention, a voice of reasoning. May the Lord place such along our path.

David could have resisted, ignoring the voice of reasoning, kill Abigail, and proceed to wipe out Nabal and all that is his,  however, he didn’t! And Abigail? She took her life in her hands just like Esther in Esther 4:16.

The Holy Spirit, the word of God and our moral compass tells us when we are doing something wrong. The question then is, are we listening?

The Lord has, and is sending whatever that needs to be sent, to restrain you and yours from damnation. Will you heed the call today? The call to yield your heart, and life unto the Lord.

It is by the mercies of God that you and I are not consumed – Lamentation 3:22-23. It is the hand of the Lord that has kept you and I from grievous sin.

It is God’s hand restraining the wicked one from making a shish kebab of us!

Yield your heart today! Tomorrow may be too late!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Revealed Word! For All!

Revelations from the study of the word of God must first speak to you as a minister, before you can deliver it forward. When God speaks to one, He speaks to all by His Holy Spirit – Mark 13:37.

Therefor, when a word is received, it must first, as light pass through you, examining, correcting, instructing and so on before it can have an impact on the recipient and we all as in beholding Him in a mirror can be transformed by the renewing of our minds. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

He who has ears let Him hear what the Spirit says!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Greatness Within You – Trust God

Yes you were! Yes! you and you!

Yes you were! Yes! you and you!

The seed of greatness lies deep within everyone. The light of God shining through by the help of the Holy Spirit bring it to our consciousness. The knowledge of who we are birth a yearning, so strong a desire to bring forth that which has laid dormant within us since the beginning of time. Remember friends, before the foundations of the earth was laid, God knew us.

Jeremiah 1:4-10

4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,5 “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.”
6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

What are you waiting for friends, start flexing your muscles. Every baby steps should be towards your calling in life. You are here for a purpose. A grand purpose at that, it required Jesus Christ to step in and gave himself as a ransom when great grand dad and mom sinned in the garden of Eden. Do not let that precious blood be in vain. Rise up, strengthen the feeble hand and do something, anything that will align you with the design of heaven.

Greatness await you friends! Let go of everything and everyone that do not add value to your life. Ask God to show you what to do. He told Samuel in 1 Samuel 16:3 …..” I will show you what to do”. He still speaks and will speak to your situation if you would only listen and be obedient. Does it really matter what people will say or not say? Who cares? You? Then you are not yet ready to tap into the greatness within your reach, the greatness that God planted in your heart.

Stand with God, he will see you through. Trust God’s judgement, he knows way more than you could ever know and sees farther than you could. Jeremiah 32:19 Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind;……

The Lord that started a good thing in your life is able to complete it, he will perfect it, yield yourself, trust God and he will grant you the desires of your heart. Every of your action backed by faith in the written word of God shall prosper. Trust thou in the Lord ye children of the Most High God.

Shalom
