He Lives In Hearts!

There is a deep yearning in the heart of every being to be one with its maker. We all crave the presence of God, and there is no better place to feel God than in His Word. Dwell in it, and live by it!

His presence is in wherever you are this moment, for God is not in that place or those places, but within you! God dwells not in that made by human hands, God dwells in our hearts. Will you allow the Lord a place in your heart today? Open up your heart and let the Lord come in. Behold He knocks, if anyone opens up for Him, He will come in and sup with him.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Acts 7:48“However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: 49 “‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? 50 Has not my hand made all these things?’

Acts 17:24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 

The question then is, is God in your heart?. Many a time we get it wrong, we want to build a house for God, do stuffs for God, while all God want is to be in us and walk with us!

If you are born again, God lives in you by His Holy Spirit. Therefore, worship Him! Worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness. Acknowledge His presence! Give Him some praise! Hallelujah!

If you do not have a relationship with God or understand what you just read. Please close your eyes and say, Lord Jesus, forgive me my sins, come into my heart and abide with me. Help me Lord to know you and have your way in my heart! It’s that simple! The Holy Spirit will help you. Trust Him!

Thank you Lord for making our hearts your dwelling place. We love you!

Shalom!

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!

Receiving The Kingdom!

“Let little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14&15.

Jesus then took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

What then are the characteristics of children?

Children are kind, generous, loving, trusting, moldable, flexible, sensitive, expressive, open, genuine, simple, void of pride, judgement, and manipulation.

Children are forgiving, do not bear grudges, nor gossip, or oppress, they are simply an image of what we need to be in-order to receive from the Lord!

Father Lord, let the child in each and everyone of us wake up to the fullness of your grace in Jesus mighty name Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Let It Be! Your Way!

Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead.

You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am.

Don’t run from suffering; embrace it.

Follow me and I’ll show you how.

Self-help is no help at all.

Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self.

What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself?

What could you ever trade your soul for?
Matthew 16:24‭-‬26 MSG

Building Idols In The Heart Of Man!

The world is full of idols. There are too many things, money, people, lifestyle and so much more that Satan has put in place for many to worship today in the world. Satan told Jesus to bow down to him less we forget.

Therefore, man of God, woman of God, know this and let it sink in. The Lord hates idol worship! Stop building idols in the heart of your hearers.

If you say this about you or another: I have a degree from Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, my father and father in law are on the Forbes list of the richest people in the world, you live in a $10 million dollar home, got 4 planes in your airstrip on your property, and so on and so on every opportune time to speak you are simply saying worship me, worship him or her!

This is already been done by the god of this world, every media outlet is bombarding us already about materialism, who is worthy of “worship” “starism”!

Put Christ Jesus on the pedestal and keep Him there alone! Stop sharing center stage with Christ for it is a dangerous thing! More dangerous for your hearers ‘cos they will worship man when they should be worshipping God the creator of heavens and earth, the one that has the breath of all beings including yours!

Let your essence be Christ in you the hope of glory! Put Christ on the pedestal always and you’ll receive the adulation you crave, for Christ will be revealed in you!

You Are The Change!

You have to decide at which point you stop listening to naysayers starting with you!

That’s right!

That inner voice that speaks doubt and the outer voices drumming in your ears. Stop it!

Tune in to the voice of the Master that speaks calm, peace, progress, healing, recover, transformation and much

more!

Ignore the cynic and all!

You are being transformed into a thing of beauty in all ramifications to please God.

Your eyes are been enlightened to see and you are strengthened to do more, soaring to higher heights!

Trust the process, Rely on the Master!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Turning Point! Faith

So how do we fit what we know of Abraham, our first father in the faith, into this new way of looking at things?

If Abraham, by what he did for God, got God to approve him, he could certainly have taken credit for it. But the story we’re given is a God-story, not an Abraham-story.

What we read in Scripture is, “Abraham entered into what God was doing for him, and that was the turning point.

He trusted God to set him right instead of trying to be right on his own.”
Romans 4:1‭-‬3 MSG

Just Jesus Devotional: Loving God & Man!

Memory Verse

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37.

Declaration Prayer

God, thank You for implanting eternity in me, a divine sense of purpose.

I want to love You with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my mind.’ I want to love my neighbor as myself.’ I know this is the desire of Your heart. You designed me to love.

Breathe Your purpose into my soul that I may live intentionally every day.

Show me how to love every person You put in my path each day. I want to bring You joy by agreeing wholeheartedly with others, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

Give me an unselfish heart that I may not try to impress others. I will be humble, thinking of others as better than myself.

Help me look out not only for my own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Jesus, I purpose to follow You on purpose.

Inspired By: Ecclesiastes 3:11; Matthew 22:37-39; Philippians 2:2-4: John 1:43.
