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. You are at a place where your five loaves of bread and two fishes are feeding thousands – Mark 6:30-44
Will you open your eyes and see!!! Your presence makes the wicked uncomfortable. Can’t you see? Your joy in the midst of storms is revealing the peace of God and the heart of the deceiver. You are having impact far and wide. Your seed offering is growing right where you are! You must employ all, you must be poured out! Exodus 4:21 The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go”.
Don’t you dare hold back! But, but enough of your excuses!!!. Aaron spoke for Moses! I am working this out for you, equipping you daily. Absolutely! Oh yes!
Do not be afraid, but be strong and courageous for I am with you! I will never leave nor forsake you. 2 Chronicles 32:7 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. 8 With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.
You are seated and there is so much commotion. Imagine when you stand in your full stature in the capability of the Most High God to wage war against the hypocrisy of religion and the ills amongst my people!!! You are made for a time like this, remember Moses my servant, he had to go through the desert to be matured, Joseph had to go through the wilderness of unfairness from his brothers, slavery, wrong accusations, imprisonment in order to be able to take charge of the abundance of my provisions and protect my heritage.
Just know that everything you have experienced, are experiencing and will experience was, is, and will work for your good, preparing you for the purpose for which you were created. You needed to be strong dear, for you were too weak, too sentimental, doubtful, intolerant, temperamental and simple. You had to be toughen up, you have to be refined to be among the chosen few.
I am your strength and light, your great reward, your righteousness, your refiner, your glory and beauty. I am working in you to will and to act in order for my great pleasure to be fulfilled in you- Philippians 2:13! Hold nothing back my child! You must be poured out, so be bold knowing I am with you! Fear not! You are blessed and highly favored! Stay focused, I will help you!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

In the many signs and wonders in my own life that I have witnessed, I know for sure that there is no stopping me.Christ is still working miracle through this earthen vessel. I remember almost 15 years ago, I had just had a baby, and in my six weeks postpartum it was discovered that I had a mass. I was scheduled for an ultrasound but before the scheduled day, I was rushed with severe pain into surgery, I couldn’t sign a waiver myself, my brother in law did. It was scary for they had found ovarian cyst on both ovaries pushing against every organ sending excruciating pain all over.
It was a terrible time but what follows can only be the hand of Jesus Christ of Nazareth at work. An ovary was removed and the other left to give me an opportunity to have more children should I want more. Friends, this was in Columbus, Ohio! I kept praying that God was able to replace that ovary and He did. Ask me how? Years after in Canada, I went to different hospitals and did several scan and no one believed my story of an ovary been removed, though the scars are there. Jesus had replaced it Himself. The recreative power of God at work in me. I have since gone through a lot of health scares and Christ Jesus kept proving Himself time and time again as my healer. Hormonal imbalance that would have stopped others having their monthly’s kept my cycle on schedule. I am indeed a wonder! The Lord has been very good!
Friends, as long as there is breath in your nostrils know that the Lord is at work in you. Fight the good fight of faith and give no room to the devil and his agents. They abound everywhere, to discourage and malign the presence of God in your life. Resist and stand fast for a notable miracle is been done in and through you. Look back and you’ll realize, you have really come along way. Rejoice friends and be glad, YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!
Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. Then the leading priests and Pharisees called the high council together. “What are we going to do?” they asked each other. “This man certainly performs many miraculous […]
Luke 1: 26 NIV In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.”29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found favour with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.
Friends, Mary the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ was favoured of God, hand picked and ordained before the foundation of the world was laid to bring forth the Lord Jesus into this world. Elizabeth was to bring forth John the baptist, Christ forerunner. Some of you reading this have been ordained to bring forth children that will grow up to be great apostles of the Lord. Men and women of stature in the Kingdom of God waiting to come forth from wombs of destiny. Some of you might have been waiting to conceive for years now. Some of you have been called barren and have gone through countless pain.
Birthing destiny is not an easy thing. As Mary and Elizabeth were favoured of God, you would expect that they will not have any heartaches right? Elizabeth waited so long, in our time she would have been made fun of. “Here she goes again, church all the time, loving and working for God with nothing to show for it”, right?. I don’t even understand Elizabeth and Zachariah any more, this priesthood thing has gotten into their heads that they are not bothered about leaving a legacy! some would have said.
Mary on the other hand was almost disgraced but for the quick intervention of the Lord. Matthew 1 :18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”22 All this took place to fulfil what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
Friends, been favoured of God does not mean smooth riding through life. There will be bumps here and there, there will be storms to ride through like Jesus did. Those detours are for your good, it will work out and is working out for you already! Be rest assured however that the Lord will never leave nor forsake you when you go through storms, valleys and all sort. God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can take. He paid enormously for you to now leave you stranded. Jesus will come through for you always. Trust Him and lean on Him alone.
Just imagine Mary’s thought, knowing she has seen and heard from God and her experience in the community, everyone looking for that opportunity to throw at least a stone at her for her crime as the custom dictates. Many are looking for opportunity to call you names, stigmatize you, label you and all sort! Please don’t let it stick on you, shake it off, keep your head up and eyes focused on Jesus.
You are a blessed and highly favoured child of the Most High God. You are blessed beyond any and every form of reproach. You have been chosen, hand picked for a spectacular purpose. You need only to yield your life totally to the Master porter to mold you as He will. Live and walk in this confidence that there is greatness in you my friends. You are very important in the agenda of heaven. Bask in the love of God and be a channel of kindness to others. Be intentional in living for the Lord, for eternity.
Stay in Christ, He loves you!
Ezekiel 22:30 “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
Friends, your being different is a plus not a minus! You are uniquely created for a grand purpose regardless of whatever voices have been speaking in contrast. You don’t have to fit in, flow with the tide to belong! Be unapologetically yourself, working consistently towards the divine plan of God.
The Most High God, all knowing, all seeing One always calls the unique, an ordinarily simple but unique individual, a man from a family like Abraham, Moses, Joseph, David, even King Saul, Apostle Paul amongst many to do extra ordinary things. Usually those called do not look like it, for they are flawed, unlikely and overlooked individual, disadvantaged yet carrying the seal of God’s approval in thier DNA.
Every part of the human body has unique purpose, so does every single being created by God – some for honor and others for dishonor. You however can work your way into honor from dishonor and vice versa by the mercies of God, for He does not wish that any should perish. Romans 9:21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? Verse 22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endure with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction.
The special purpose for which you were created is what makes you unique, unique enough to fit into God’s masterpiece, and not the expectations of the naysayers around you. Psalms 106:23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them. Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, to turn away His wrath, lest he destroy them.
You are chosen, you are loved, you are important in the agenda of heaven! You are not weird or “spooky”! Remind yourself of your uniqueness and God’s plan and purpose for your life. You are to stand in the gap for your fathers house, His body, your Church, family and kingdom! Do not be found wanting in this regard. Rise above every limitation to be who God created you to be – a vessel of honor for His good pleasure! Stay blessed! Be in His presence!
Lord God Almighty, I give you all the glory, honor, and adoration. I am short of words to express what is going on inside of my being right now.
Something is happening to me
Something is happening in me
Something beyond my comprehension is happening
It is beautiful and full of peace, joy, hope!
And some feelings I can’t quite put into words
Oh wow! I can’t believe I am writing this!
You see Friends, I, like some of you and many others likewise, who has merely been existing without knowing the purpose of their existence, living life below full potential, without an inkling of what “Life” is. Life you see is eternal, it is beyond this world that we know of. Life existed even before we were born. We came into being after conception and all it entails, however we existed before that, we just had to wait to come through our parents as ordained of God, the Master planner, scheduler, Master builder of the human race.
Jeremiah 1:5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
As the verse stated, It can be deduced that we existed as a spirit, known by the Father of Spirit, before we were placed in our parents spermatozoa and eggs accompanied by the passion and union that resulted in our conception. We are here to play an important role or roles. We have a destiny to fulfill! A plan to follow!
Be aware that the circumstances of your conception does not determine your purpose in God’s plan for your life, your part in the agenda of heaven. You are here for a grand purpose. Like Perez and Zerah in Genesis 38 and our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38, your conception might not make sense as at the time of your birth. Like David, you might have been that unwanted pregnancy, the last born of the family, the boy that came when your parents wanted a girl, or the girl born when expectation was for the arrival of a long awaited boy. You are very important in the agenda of heaven! You are loved, cherished and needed for a task that ONLY you can accomplish.
Don’t waste precious moments, times, opportunities and gifts that can be channelled towards the accomplishment of that divine task prepared in advance of your birth! Ephesians 2: 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
You have to do yourself a favour to remind yourself constantly of your importance in the agenda of heaven and partner with your maker, the creator of heaven and earth to see you through the fulfillment of this grand plan. Remember, in this world where you and I live in we will have tribulations, things will happen that may make you doubt and wonder why you are here and all sort. John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Knowing the mind of God towards you as His child will help you to be grounded with the assurance that whatever storm you are in shall PASS! Yes, it has not come to stay, just ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to help you to learn on time that which you are expected to learn from each season, so you can grow and move to the next season, fulfilling the plan and purpose for which you came into being.
Friends, please note that you are very important! Actually, God Almighty is counting on you to make impact for the good of ALL in your sphere of influence, starting from your home and every life that comes in contact with you out wards. Sow the seed of goodness, kindness, peace, love, encouragement and compassion.
