I just want to share the gospel with my life!Nothing more! I want others to know that had it not been the love of Christ in my heart, the knowledge of who He says that I am – and I believe it 1000%, I will not be here this moment! Christ blood sustains me!
I, like many others, have faced sour troubles, tossed here and there! But, like many before me, retained our joy! Christ Jesus in me/us is the hope of glory – Colossians 1:27. His strength is made perfect in our weakness – 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Lord thank you for making a statement with my life! Regardless of all ills, you are God, and God you’ll remain! Thank you for victory in Christ Jesus over all the works of Satan – 1 John 3:8! All that the Father has given me I shall not lose – John 6:39.
Your destiny is sealed up in Christ Jesus friends! Nothing can change it! As long as you abide in the Lord, NO ONE CAN STEAL YOUR CROWN! Don’t be an Esau though! Rejoice and be glad! Whatever it is now, giving you headaches and heartaches will pass! Your Saviour lives!
How about you? Is Christ Lord over your life? Do you believe He is God and came as a man in order to take your place? Believe in Jesus today and you are guaranteed eternal life!
Friends, be encouraged and know that God will not leave nor forsake you. He loves you so deeply beyond human comprehension. Imagine your first love, the fluttering of butterflies in your hearts and stomach. The giggling sensation of a loving touch and overwhelming calmness of contentment in the arm of your love. All this is not adequate enough to describe the love experience with the most high God. It is just too awesome! Knowing God loves you, with weakness and all is something that should give you warmth.
You see we do not qualify for love because on our own merit, there ain’t anything good in us, we backbite, hate, envy, tell lies, an average Joe is full of arrogance and so on. Yet God gave his own son Jesus Christ to die for my sins and yours. Christ redeemed us from all the evil that was second nature to us.
The evil things we enjoyed in the past is repulsive to us now. In the past when a guy “checks you out” you feel good about it. Now you are like common man, repent. You are conscious of your royalty, you are not common, not cheap, you are rare, wonderfully and beautifully made, not a play thing to be handled any how. You are Christ ambassador, a diplomat, God’s own special person. Whoa!
Our God is awesome, recreating strength, courage, love and patience out of nothingness. Revamping our life’s to exude glory, honor and majesty. Can you see the picture of who you are through the eyes of the Master? Open your hearts my friends, let the love of Christ in. You will be transformed to be who you are created to be, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a special people that God gives authority to have dominion upon all things created.
Will you draw close to God today, repent of your do it yourself approach to life, invite Jesus in to take the rein and lead you on the path of righteousness. He loves you regardless of your decision today. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you reject Christ love. It is freely given, please stretch your heart, extend your hands today, reach out in faith, just believe and ask him to touch you today. Tomorrow might be too late!. Today is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.
A song of ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; 2 Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. 3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. 5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. 6 I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. 7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. 8 He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
God had spoken to his mother before his conception. God also revealed Himself to both parent, instructing them how to care for this anointed child. Samson was anointed from the womb, yet he grew up doing everything contrary to the commandments of God. Sexual immorality was his undoing. It cost Samson his eyes and life ultimately. He lost touch with the Holy Spirit of the living God that had been abiding in him even before he was born.
Samson did achieve the purpose for which he was born, which was to destroy the very fabric of the Philistines power and dominion over Israel – God’s own possession. He destroyed the Lord’s enemy – Israel’s cruel oppressor.
Oh Samson! Samson! He would have still destroyed Philistines power and rule over Israel and lived, had he not an insatiable desires for strange women.
You see, friends, there will always be something, issues, desires contending for our life and destiny. God has great, wonderful, and beautiful plan for His children. The wicked one also has plans to kill, steal and destroy. Therefore, there is conflict from within and without. Even after salvation, believers still struggle to stand in the Word in righteousness because of the demand of the flesh over the mind.
In the case of Samson, it was women – beautiful women. In our case, there are many – handsome men, power, money, anger, pride, greed, envy, gluttony, hatred, gossip, snitching, backbiting, loose tongue, controlling others free will by all means and so on. These can, and is capable of pushing us out of God’s plan and purpose for our existence.
Friends, will you join me in sober reflection, to identify the sins that easily befalls, and take it to God in prayer. Put a system in place by the Holy Spirit so that you will not trip – fall or fail in your walk in the Spirit. It is do-able friends, we have a great and loving advocate in Jesus Christ who is daily interceding for us (I John 2:1,John 14: 16 and 26). Ministering Spirits are released when we pray to God from our heart to help and assist us in this walk of destiny (Hebrew 1:14).
The bible says, without holiness no one shall see God (Hebrew 12:14). We have the Holy Spirit to help us, we have provision, we are not stranded, nor left as orphans to navigate the treacherous path of life. Let us therefore, hold unto our confession of faith, praying earnestly that we will not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin and the transient glitter of this present world.
Repent therefore and be cleansed, renewed, restored, rejuvenated, and elevated to a position from which you and I are able to offer acceptable sacrifice, service, worship, and praise to the Most High God, King Eternal, Only Wise God, All Sufficient and All Encompassing God world without end. Amen
1 Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. 2 For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth. 3 He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. 4 He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. 5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets. 6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. 7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. 8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. 9 The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
