Relationships : Love – Divine, Marriage, Divorce, & Destiny!

Friends, no one that comes to Christ will He cast out. John 6:37 “All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”  What an assurance to know that no matter how far you’ve gone in your sin, Jesus Christ is waiting with open arms to welcome you into His Kingdom. You only need to turn around and run into His open arms.

My dear friends, do not let the facts of your life deprive you of eternity. Do not let one or two, or even six failed marriages, business, health or whatever the case may be steal your joy and deprive you of living life fully. Your marriage failed? Yes, it is painful and the love of Christ will heal you. It may take time but please note that you will get over the loss. Will you let that bump on the road to destiny deprive you of eternity?

 

Marriage is the first institution ordained by God and trust me the enemy of our soul, our own poor judgement and many factors mitigates against God’s good intentions. How did we get here? What happened that makes that better half that just thinking about them a while ago, releases countless butterfly’s inside of us, but now you feel like throwing up, you are repulsed by them. What happened? That which was good suddenly is bad now? Which way forward? I will be addressing these questions subsequently, and your response is welcome anytime here or by email: joansanusi@gmail.com

You, my friend need to retrace your steps back to your savior. Looking at yourself through the eyes of Christ is the only way to be healed and make sense of your predicament. The only solution is still in the word of God that never fails!

No matter how we explain it, or justify it, God hates divorce! He hates it when we hurt, when our hearts are broken like a bird with broken wings and we can’t fly.  Jesus wept when He heard Mary and Martha sorrowing over their brother Lazarus in John 11:33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked.  “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

Every time you weep over the death of love in your marriage, Jesus Christ weeps too. He feels what you are feeling my friend. He sees your broken heart, dreams, distorted view, Jesus feels your pain! And, He wants to suite you, to pour the oil of gladness upon your heart, to make you feel again and live an abundantly fulfilling life.

Contrary to what you are thinking, divorce is not a death sentence! Death sentence is when you accept defeat, accepting the lie of the enemy that Christ can never accept you into His kingdom. You will still be used of God – read the story of the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4. Let hope and faith arise in you! Arise and shine friends!!!!

Relationship mishap incapacitate. It deprives one of full joy and makes one to operate far below potential. This does not have to be so my friend. You can turn your marriage, your life around even for God’s glory. As long as it’s called today, it does not matter what stage you are, there is room for a turn around. Turn away from sin first, repent and ask the Lord to help you and my friend, you will be accepted in the beloved!

Think on this friend. Jeremiah 1: 5” Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations,” This was before your sex was known! What you would be on earth has been predetermined before you were conceived, how then can a failed marriage or whatever terminate the mandate of God upon your life. I guess God knew you would be divorced, remarry and divorced again and again like the Samaritan woman, yet He hasn’t changed His mind concerning you. You have a say friend! Determine to cooperate with the Lord by forsaking sin, living a holy life as best as you can, leaning on the Holy Spirit to help you every which way! We must not continue in sin that grace may abound – Romans 6:1. Far be it! 

Ephesians 1: 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Prayer: Father, help me to meet up to the standard of the requirements of the new covenant, and bless me through it, in Jesus Name. Amen – Open Heavens Devotional

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

To be continued.

 

 

Blessed And Highly Favored One!

I am blessed and highly favored. My blessings are way beyond been quantified in monetary terms. Yet, I am one of the richest people on this planet. I am blessed to have been chosen before the foundations of the earth was laid as a force of love and joy. I am very fortunate to come from the linage of royalty, astute and wealthy earthly being, successful by the standard of their time, yet humble. My greatest blessing is the knowledge of my heavenly heritage when my Savior, Jesus Christ sought me out, beckoning me to His kingdom as a choice possession, purchased at a precious price of His blood shed on Calvary’s Tree.

securedLook at me, just take a good look friends and see how blessed I am to have found faith so precious and true. Where will I be this moment without Christ grace and love freely given to me by faith?  What would have happened to me in the Lion’s den, the stormy seas and rough places?

Christ Jesus, His love, grace and presence makes a lot of difference in my life. I am who I am by His grace, a changed being, transformed and energized to live a fulfilling life pleasing He, who saved me all the way, with boldness, courage and faith that come what may, I will always be victorious, triumphing over every obstacle.

To be grateful and live for Christ is the least I can give to my savior this moment. Gratefully I praise God for saving me, working in me by His Holy Spirit to will and to act in order to fulfill His good pleasure concerning me.

Thank you Lord Jesus. I am so very grateful. All that I need and desire this season, I bring before you and ask according to your will that all these also I shall gratefully thank you for soon. That you will showcase your love, grace and power in my life and destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Love Yourself: Love Others!

10-guidelines-from-god-11-728

When you learn to love yourself, imperfection and all as God loves you, you will learn to love others equally. You are who God created you to be, wonderful and beautifully made, packed with tonnes of treasure waiting to manifest God’s glory. Just be you and allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in your life. You are perfect in the sight of God for the purpose for which you are created. Everything God created is perfect as stated in Genesis 1:31.

You are perfect and I can’t help reiterating this fact. You are a vessel in God’s hand for His purpose and His glory. Therefor relax and flow with God’s purpose for your life. You are in very good hands. The hands that created heaven and earth, the Sun, Moon and Stars. He placed everything in order, so He knows all the way to the end here and the beginning in eternity every minute details of your existence and He has you covered.

Go therefor and be your courageous self. Go and make disciples of all nations. Yes, you and you! God does have a grand purpose for your life. Oh well you didn’t know way back then! Now you know so walk circumspectively fulfilling His purpose for your life. Thank you Lord for my friends and I. We love and honor you Lord. Be magnified !

Shalom

Why Am I Here?

saved to serveWe often forget why we are still here. Do we really know the reason why we were saved? I believe we were saved as a result of God’s love for us and His need to use us to bring in others into his kingdom.

A lot have lost sight so soon. We have built some dynasty and have rested the oars. We are very comfortable now, that’s right! God is watching and waiting on us to act before its too late.

We all were saved to serve Him who loved us enough to lay down his life for us all.
