Open Wide Your Mouth! Psalms 81:10

What will the wicked not do to subvert the plan of God? Anything done for the glory of God will always come under attack of the devil.

OOOh! How much time has been wasted by many who have listened to strange voices? Voices of limitations, condemnation, persecution, accusation and all kinds of negative voice! You are unloveable, not good enough, not educated, too educated, not capable, not beautiful, too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, you don’t know the words, not enough understanding of the Scriptures, too young, too old, not married, single, separated, divorced, jobless, not rich enough, and so on!

I heard you, Father! I am just the perfect soul for what God wants to do! Everything about me, soul, spirit, and body is perfect! The circumstances and situation of my life? God said that is part of His plan! What a relief? I have let this hold me back for too long!!!  It is time for the doing! You heard right! No limit! I heard God even backs up troublemaker! I will touch on this soon.

The apostles of old were limited in many regards in that they were not educated, struggling in business, and maybe idle like Nathaniel who was found under the Fig tree in John 1:48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered“I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”

How do you measure up? What qualifies you to speak, live and act the word of God? Your degrees? I don’t think so! Except for the part that says “if you are thirsty come and drink, without money? Come and buy is a lie!

John 7:37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. 39 By this, he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty,  come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

I have subjected my ears to those limiting voices for so long and too long! They were almost drumming out the still small voice of God in my heart. I had allowed them to discourage me to the point that I restraint from writing down what God is speaking to my ears and heart. I did not want some to think my writings was about them! Can you imagine that? My mouth is open Lord! Please fill it upPsalm 81:10

When the Lord had instructed that whatever he says to one, he says to all – Mark 13:37! God reveals things to us individually for our use first and for others. If your sermon, writing, words are not first for you, I doubt if you heard from God. God’s words should be a yardstick for you first before you can convincingly deliver it, and it becomes a word for the season for someone else.

Therefore, I repent today! I repent of disobeying the voice of God! I am not going to cherry pick and deliver again. Father, as you speak your transforming words to my heart, let it change me, and help me to deliver such as instructed. Help me not to look at the faces! But stay focused on you, my helper and friend!

Yes, Lord, I heard you! Those I am worried about are actually feasting on the words while I am worried of been misquoted. Please help me to live, write, and take action in love! I am too tough on myself, help me to be gentle so I can be soothing. I guess I am more critical of myself than The Word is of Me!

Thank you, Lord for the victory you have given me in my mind! It just a matter of time before I see myself mounting up with wings as eagles! This is so for you also friends! May you win the war raging in your mind. May all strange voices speaking to you be silenced in Jesus mighty name.

Thank you, Lord, for showing me that I am very good, good enough for what you have entrusted to me. Greater works you promised I would do if I remain in you! Thanks, Daddy Lord, my Father, God, Saviour and Lover! You shield, protect, provide, and support, my husband, my King, be magnified!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Speak To The King!

Judges 17: 6 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. This sentence was repeated three more times in the book. It means everyone made rules and lives by whatever pleases them per time. They were a law unto themselves, answerable to no one. No guidelines, no best practices, agreed to stipulations of how we ought to live, behave and serve God and others. The list goes on! So is chaos!

King here refers to leadership,  a supreme being, authority and to bring it down to this moment, for a man, a King is first God Almighty, Father – spiritual and biological, bosses, and anyone in authority above you.

A king to a woman represents God Most High first, husband if you are married, Father – both spiritual and biological, bosses and anyone in authority above you. To both sexes, then when there is no “King’, that is, when there is no one we are answerable to, that is when everyone does as they saw fit! We behave and act as we deem fit which does not necessarily mean good, bad or perfect, for you know our knowledge and perspective at best are one-sided and narrow often.

When we do not have the full picture of a situation, we bring tools we think is ideal to play. This most often will give temporary relief, but, to garner a long lasting solution and relief, knowing and having all sides of the issue tabled before us will enable us to proffer the best solution which is where the need for a “King” comes in.

The role of a King cannot be emphasized enough in a nation, life of its people and individuals. Therefore, be careful and prayerful! Only the King Eternal has the full picture of your life and He has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit to guide us. You must be answerable to God, the King Eternal and to those He has set over you. Only then, can you actually live to please Him that died for you 

In many instances, Kings have been the downfall of a nation and also the strength, prosperity, peace, and well-being of its people. The King then, that only good emanate from is the King Eternal. From the category of Kings, you have choices to make except in the King – biological father. All others then require you to seek the King Eternal’s input to make the best choice.

Have you been making wrong choices? Does it seem you cannot make right choice since all your choices have been “ish” afterward? Will you go to the King Eternal this moment? Ask Him to help you to make the right choices, not the choices based on your logic, but according to His will for you.

In organizations, we will say industrial best practices, which basically is a generally accepted way of doing things that give the best result superior to other means. Therefore, friends, let your next choice be made in line with the best practices, God’s best for you.

This brings me to this question! Have you given your life to Jesus Christ? I mean the King Eternal! Yes. Praise God! If you haven’t, today is the day to do that. You see, friends, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23! We all need a King, a Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ, be you a man or a woman, young or old! Jesus Christ died for us, let us live for Him! Repent of your sinful ways friend, accept Christ Jesus into your heart, confess Him as the King and Lord over your life. Speak to the King now!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Light Shining In Darkness!

The odd one like Mordecai refusing to bow down to Haman! Unlike Esau, holding unto your birthright – your glory. A star shinning in dark places, an inconvenience to evil perpetrators, a target of the wicked one.


Fear not the Lord says, I have overcome the world! He who has the key of David is able! He keeps alive and no one can kill, lift up and none can pull down, He is able to keep you from falling. He will not leave you to the will of your enemies. Selah!

Yoruba says “ti aba n ja, bi ka ku ko”

The bible says “I will give lives for your life”

As many as have gathered together against you shall fall for your sake.
As many hands that wants to cover your glory shall wither in Jesus Christ mighty name. For no one can cover the glory of the sun or stop the moon from rising!

As many as wants to push you down to sheol will go down to sheol in your place. For it is written, he who digs a pit shall fall into it. He who rolls a stone shall have it rolled over them. As many as does not want your voice to be heard where it matters will be silenced.

As many ears that does not want to hear your voice receive deafness this moment in Jesus name.

Who has apoken and it comes to pass when the Lord has not spoken?

As many as has and is pronouncing evil against you and yours shall receive on thier heads in 100 fold what they have spoken against you. For who can curse him who the Lord has blessed!

The Lord has spoken who can reverse it? The Lord has called who can but answer?

May the power of the Most High God, the power that raised Christ from the dead, manifest in your life to destroy every works of satan.
May you receive help from above.

May the hands that is not of mortals lift you up. May you receive help today.

May every mouth that have laughed at you come and rejoice with you.

May it be known to all that the Lord is your strenght and salvation, your protector and shield, your fortress and covering, your high tower and safety from the storm in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.

Truth In Love!

Guide us Oh Lord Our God into the Truth of thy Words by your Holy Spirit, that we might be able to depart from the errors of Our Ways in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

It is so ironic that as Christians, we are apt to point out others walking in errors while we live and breath in error. Mind you, every single one of Us brethren are prone to error due to our sin nature, however being born again exonerate us, yet we get tangled up in error.

Why is this so? Ignorance I believe is a factor here, for if we do not know better, we act and respond to stimulus as per our nature. Ego also is a factor for we might know  the right thing to do, but in order to seem tough, in control, in charge of the situation, we act contrary to the Word and Will of God to maintain the status quo which is unlike our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is all encompassing love, humility, peace, truth, justice, kindness, mercy and righteous.

Truth

Isaiah 32:5 The foolish person will no longer be called generous,
Nor the miser said to be bountiful;
For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the Lord,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
Also the schemes of the schemer are evil;
He devises wicked plans
To destroy the poor with lying words,
Even when the needy speaks justice.
But a generous man devises generous things,
And by generosity he shall stand.

Dear Lord we pray, that we will be bold in Christ to speak the truth of the gospel of God in much conflict. That our exhortation will not come from error or uncleanness, nor full of deceit, but as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we will speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts. in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. Amen 1 Thessalonians 2:2-4
