A wasteland? A barren land? Backside of the desert? Is that what you think? Is that where you are at? Are you sure? Really!!!! Could it be your carnal mind perspective? Okay, it’s your unbelieving heart perspective! Is that better?

Well, heavens perspective is that you are at a place where your spirit is thriving! You are at a place where you can download from heavens freeway. You are at a place where you can hear the inaudible. You are at a place where you can see the invincible. You are at a place where God’s power and presence is  made manifest in you.

The Road Less Traveled – Greatness!

Every being, well, most being wants to achieve great things. We want to leave great legacy, achieve feats, pioneer greatness in everything. As Christians, Christ followers, we want to be used by God as vessels of honor, battleaxe, sign, and a wonder. We desire greatness and pray always for the power of the Living God to manifest in our lives, through us, and much more.

God on His part wants to accomplish all these and beyond what we could ever think or imagine. The only clause then is, are we willing to yield ourselves totally? Are we able to go on the road less traveled? This is the place where our faith is tested, a wilderness, and a place where we see ourselves the way God see us, and realize we do need God’s help. This is the place where we are tempted the most, where the devil try to weary us so he can steal, kill, and destroy.

A faith untested,  and un-proving is not reliable, so is any one who has not been tested and proving by trials. To achieve greatness in life then, one must be willing to go on the road less traveled. The price may include so much as becoming a slave like Joseph did, lonesomeness like Moses, stripped of earthly royalty, a fugitive in the wilderness. What should I say about Ruth? She had to lose her husband, Esther had to compete with other women for the Kings heart, Jesus Christ our Lord for forty days and forty night, had to be hungry and tempted by Satan, the Samaritan woman had to experience heartbreak after heartbreak before she met the real deal – Christ Jesus our Savior.

To become who God created us to be from heaven’s perspective, some pruning must surely take place. Apostle Paul had to be blind for some days, dependent on others to show him the way. Imagine him, a leader, well read, champion of persecution, authoritative figure having to be led! What an humbling situation!!!

The situations and circumstances giving you heartaches are the road less traveled friends. These are what God is using to prune you so you can be fit for the purpose for which you were created. Those extra baggage tailing you had to be discarded. We hold unto things, pride, ego,  our ways, right,self righteousness, self sufficiency so much that we leave no room for the Spirit to work in us to will and to act as He intends, so God in His mercy send us to the school of life to learn, and learn we do when our back is to the wall, we just must look up.

When we come to the end of our rope in an instant with that thorn in the flesh that we cannot remove by ourselves, then we pray as Paul did. Usually, the thorns are the last place we think we will have an issue, the area of our strength – our strong suit, that very place is where we will be tempted so ferociously by the enemy to the point of weariness.

We must not be weary though, for God said in our weakness is His strength revealed. 2 Corinthians 12:But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.  

We must constantly, I mean keep our eyes on our Savior, for if we do not, we may sink or be swept away by the tides. Let us keep our eyes on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for He alone can help us. We must seek His face with all our heart, leaning not on our own understanding, but His, with all our hearts, soul and body.

Lord Jesus, we thank you for your faithfulness, for never giving up on us. Thank you for loving us. Father we ask in Jesus mighty name, that you will hasten our stay in this wilderness, help us to learn, see, discard , uproot, plant, prune and all that need to be, in order for us to pass for the glory of your name. Oh Lord, let us not throw in the towel at the edge of our deliverance. Help us to stay the course and come out triumphant Lord. Let your peace never depart from us Lord. Envelop us in your mercy Most High God in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Shout Out! Praises! Praises!

Today is a special day for me friends! It has been quite an eventful journey for me! I added a year today hurrah!! I am so grateful to God is an understatement! Immeasurably grateful is not even enough! Eternally grateful is maybe ish!!

if-you-wish-to-strengthen-your-confidence-in-godIt is human to feel abandoned when going through a valley! Wilderness experience works overtime on our minds and makes the soul to second guess the love of its creator. Moses most likely would have had such experiences while passing through the desert though not reported in the scriptures. Job cursed the day he was born in  Job 3:1 After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. He said:“May the day of my birth perish, and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’ That day—may it turn to darkness;……on and on Job went.

The mercy of God however located him and restored unto him in folds all that he lost. Job 42:10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. 11 All his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble the Lord had brought on him, and each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.12 The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part.

This is where am at right now. And you too if you want friends! The Lords mercy located me and brought me to see today, beautiful day filled with brightness and promises of great and wonderful things yet to unfold. The Lord Jesus rejuvenated an otherwise dying life, hell bound and transform it to what it is today. Praise God! Transformation is ongoing and am so excited, wondering what the finished product would be like!!

Father Lord, thank you for your faithfulness! Your love and mercy finds me always, no matter how far I have gone! Friends, we have a Father who pursues us with love and grace relentlessly. He is not taking no for an answer for He knows we need Him for us to be complete.

Lord, I am grateful for your faithfulness even when I am unfaithful, and doubtful, you remain faithful. Thank you for working in us to will and to act in order for you to fulfill your good pleasure concerning us – Philippians 2:13. Glory to your Holy name Oh Lord!

Shalom! Shalom!
