LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED

JOHN 14 :1  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In the light of  above scripture, Jesus said that we not let our heart to be troubled,but there is no way your heart cannot be troubled when it doesn’t have Jesus.Having said that,Jesus went on to say that we should believe in the God and in Him.This means that if you give your heart to Jesus and believe in Him,your heart will not be troubled.

It is so sad that our churches today are filled with people that don’t believe in God.People that are in church for reasons and not for God.My brother,my sister and my fellow friends,the period of time you have been going to church doesn’t count if your heart still doesn’t have Jesus.We are living in times where even Christians look troubled.

Proverbs 4:23 says we should guard our hearts,and not just guard,but guard it with all diligence.Why? Because  from it flows springs of life.Now the question is, how possibly can the springs of life flow from within your heart when it is troubled. People nowadays want to free themselves from all their burdens and trouble before they come to Jesus,but Jesus say: Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.You cannot find rest that you you need on your own.The Lord Jesus Christ is the one who will give you rest that you need.

Remember,Jesus said ‘LET NOT’ your heart be troubled.Meaning you have an option,its all up to you to LET IT or to LET NOT. Take Jesus today and find peace,love and joy.

YOU ARE A BLESSING

God has blessed you to be a blessing.You can’t be blessed and fail to be a blessing yourself.When God blesses you,there is absolutely nothing that can curse you.As a blessing of God you need to be great ,not to regret.It doesn’t matter how many people fight you ,how many kingdoms come against you.You belong in the holy and powerful kingdom of God.Let the trials try you,let people talk behind your back,you remain a blessing of God.

There is every reason why you were born in that family, there is a reason why you are in that church.God wants you to be a blessing and not a curse or a thorn to other people.As a child of God,represent your family.God did not put you in that family or church to divide it,but for you to a blessing.When you know that you are blessed,you are content with who you are,with what God has given you.Be a blessing to your family to your parents,to your kids,to your pastor and to your church.

 

 

 

 

KNOW THE SOURCE OF YOUR STRENGTH

I have been tried and tested,yet God is still my strength.I won’t be intimidated by the devil or challenges.Even through the toughest times,I still see the grace of God. I will not be shaken.Things won’t move me. The devil cannot derail me.Money cannot take me away from my rock.People cannot shake me.Pain will not stop me.With or without food on my table, God is still faithful.I will worship Him,I will give Him praise and glory.

When you know the source of your strength,even trials wont move you away from your pillar.I remember even the times when i prayed for things which never happened,i still did not give up on my God.I still saw God’s love through it all.I surrendered all to to the pillar of my strength.I can’t even begin to count the number of times God has been good to me.He has been my strength since day one.

Just where you are child of God, you have a great God by your side.If you pray and things don’t go as expected,never despair. It doesn’t mean that you are weak ,it doesn’t mean that there is no God.There was a time when i prayed strongly for my biological brother who was ill,but he was still taken away from us. I know the pain of losing loved ones,it never moved me.I  still praise the almighty God.The more I am face with challenges , the stronger i become and the closer i draw to God.

SCRIPTURE READING : PSALMS 125:1

UNDERSTANDING YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST

 

By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. (Hebrews 11:24)

It takes maturity as a christian  to know and understand who you are in the kingdom of God. You are not an ordinary person. Thank God we are saved,thank God we know Him and He knows us.But this isn’t all about christianity. One has to know who they are.Know where you stand in Christ. Know and understand what the word of God says about you.Many christians lose it along the way because they live and walk according to what people say about them.

Child of God, it is up to you to choose whether you want to be grateful or to be regretful.You can choose if you want to walk on the ground with chickens or sow above situations with eagles .Once you understand yourself,you only do things that support your dream and vision. You don’t participate in things that oppose your vision.I have many times noticed that it’s not that people don’t have dreams or goals to achieve.Almost every individual has a dream and a vision of some kind.The only problem is that they sabotage their dreams everyday.

God never created you to be a victim or to be afraid,but gave you the spirit of power.When you know who you are in Christ, you don’t just take any offer.You Understand that God has great and quality things in store for you.You are not a curse bu a blessing.You are not a mistake, but a child of God.

 

THE PAIN YOU WENT THROUGH WASN’T MEANT TO KILL YOU

Never underestimate the power of God working in you.It is the Lord our God who has been with you through it all.If those sufferings, pain and challenges were meant to kill you, you wouldn’t have been where you you are today. His grace and mercy carried you.The very same pain which you encountered may have been your pot in which you were being cooked, prepared and molded.

God does not answer all our “whys” , but He is always there  to listen to all our  “thanks giving”.Even when you are going through the darkest and painful part of life,never lose your faith, stand firm and call on the name of the Lord.God hasn’t abandoned you.Never think that you are a mistake,and you will never be.Almost everyone has at some point done things which they are not proud of.They have made mistakes along the way,but that doesn’t that you are a mistake.

The pain of losing your loved ones,the pain of being rejected, being sidelined.The pain of encountering the things which you never even imagined yourself going through.God is replacing all your tears with joy and laughter.

REFUSE TO BE HAUNTED BY YOUR PAST

beach-body-of-water-dawn-1143006.jpg

Many Christians find it too difficult to deal with their past.Well, the term “your past” explains itself. Your past is just a record of things which happened to you or which you did in the past.People concentrate more on that which affected them in the past,the things which hindered them to achieve their goals in life. For you to be successful,you should avoid concentrating more on your past.It only leaves  you with limited time to focus on the future.Limited time to design a plan about  your life.

Having failed at some point doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a failure.Remember, no matter how many people call you a failure, that will not make you a loser unless you make one out of yourself .You are created for bigger and better things, greater and glorious things.

Take a bold step and deal with those things which haunt your life.Never allow the past to rob you of your future.You are not a prisoner of your past  you are not a slave of your past.God destined you to excel in all things.

Always thank God for all He has done in your life,and for who He is in your life.Appreciate yourself and believe God for greater things.

 

COMING OUT OF A LAZARUS SITUATION (part 2)

I would love to greet you all in the precious and mighty name of our Lord Jesus.

When your life is in a grave situation, it means that there is no movement in your life.There is no progress.Everything is just turning bitter.It even feels like nothing is working for you.There is no joy in your life ,in your marriage or in your career.No wonder why, in the graves there’s no laughter nor joy.

Coming out of a grave situation takes God’s special intervention.May I take this opportunity to encourage all my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.Our God is able to do just what he said He will do.It may take decades or years, but He will do it, it may take months or weeks, my God shall do it,  It may get worse before it gets better, but God will never ever fail you.

What is it that is not working in your life? Just surrender it to God.I know you are going through some pain, you may be crying day and night with no one to wipe away your tears.God is our present place of help.The word of God says that weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.(PSALMS 30:5). I strongly feel that it’s dawning for somebody.You are just about to experience an everlasting joy that comes from the Lord.

I believe that God is taking you to another level.I am here to declare today that fear is no longer your portion, being sidelined is not your portion.You are highly favored.No devil can bewitched you.Not even the devil can curse that which God has blessed.Right where you are,the favor of God is locating you.No longer will you live your life in a grave situation, in a Lazarus situation.

God is restoring whatever the devil had robbed you of.Your family is coming back to life.Your marriage is coming back to life, your business, your career.

Grace and peace be with you.

COMING OUT OF A LAZARUS SITUATION (part 1)

At some point in life there are things that you go through not because you are not praying, not because you are not a child of God, not because you have committed some sin…But to fulfil God’s will and purpose.
We read it in scriptures that Lazarus was a good friend of Jesus, he still got sick and died.It wasn’t because of disobedience, his death was for the glory of God.
There are certain situations which you cannot avoid because they must take place for the glory of God.
He is a great God, no situation, no pain ,no infirmity or sickness can stand in His way.
When a coming out of a situation part comes, nobody can say no.Lazarus had been dead and in the grave for four days when Jesus came to their homestead.He spoke a word, and Lazarus came back to life.No matter how bad your situation is, it can still change.With God it doesn’t matter how long one has been in a situation.
When you are in a Lazarus situation, it feels like you are all by yourself in some spiritual grave, financial grave, health grave and relationship graves. It feels like nobody is willing to come to your rescue.
God is with you,He knows all your struggles, all your situations, when the coming out part comes ,no witchcraft can hinder you.

Scripture Reading: John 11:1-44
……….to be continued on Part 2……….

BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS

Whatever situation that you are going through, God is with you, He still cares about you, He still loves you.Never let your present challenges rename you, don’t lose heart child of God.
The word of God wouldn’t have encouraged us to be strong if there was nothing that needs us to be strong along the way.Just believe in God and never doubt Him.
The challenges and pain you are faced with do not mean that you are not christian enough.You only need to be strong and courageous.In the light of Isaiah 54:17- The word doesn’t promise us that there will be no weapon which will be forged against us,no.But it say no weapon formed against us will prevail. Christianity doesn’t mean that everything will come on a silver platter.You need to use the courage and strength which you have.
Whatever challenge in the ministry,trust in Jesus, hold on, be it in your marriage, family or business, hold on.Pray, pray and pray.

YOU HAVE ALL IT TAKES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN

It took courage for Moses to confront Pharaoh,it took diligence for Ruth to become Boaz’s wife, it took his tongue for Jabez to resist the life of pain,it took power and authority for Jesus to call Herod a fox, child of God it always takes determination of some kind to become a great somebody.Never underestimate the power of God that is inside you.
Activate the power of God invested in you….You are carrying someone else’s testimony, you are carrying someone else’s business….I mean there’s a lot that God invested in you.Change the way you see yourself.Remember, you are not called to watch things happen,but to make things happen.
….THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU….

IF ANY MAN BE IN CHRIST…..

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new-2 Corinthians  5:17 (KJV)

At one point of time I thought there were certain special qualifications for one to  become a new creature, but then after reading this scripture I was reminded that all I need is Christ Jesus in my life.May I take this opportunity to remind you that you are complete in Christ.I don’t need to wait until I have all the money I want for me to be complete in Christ, to be a new creature.I don’t need to wait until I reach certain age or position.We are never too young or too old to become new in Christ.This portion of scripture made me realize that right where I am , where I stay and just as I am,  I am a new creature and complete in Christ once I am in Christ Jesus.

It all comes by receiving The Lord Jesus Christ into your life.You can never buy this new kind of life.It has nothing to do with the level of intelligence or the number connections that you have , but only by Jesus.

Don’t give up, don’t despair.Now that you are in Christ, God will lift you up from that deep muddy clay.You are yet to see wonderful and marvelous things coming your way.You may not be driving fancy cars,living in a big mansion with all the money you want, but you are still complete in Christ.
May The Lord God Lift Up His Countenance Upon You And Your Family.

YOU ARE WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE

There are people who are living miserable lives because of what other people say about them.People are capable of locking you up in box  of misery and low self-esteem if you don’t know who you are.Some may say that you are ugly and not lovely, while some may say you are beautiful or handsome.

I Believe that there’s every reason why you are that short,that tall,that dark,light or slim.You are God’s creation.Greater is He that is within you than he that is in the world.Look at yourself in a mirror and see God’s wonderful creation.

People may tell you that you would have been more beautiful if were a bit lighter ,bigger,darker,taller or shorter than you are.Paying more attention to what people say about you or about your body may lead to a very stressful life, whereas listening to what God says about you brings, peace ,joy,love and a more healthier life.

You need to know and identify yourself.Love yourself, respect yourself, appreciate yourself as you are and thank God for creating you in that way.I really don’t believe that God may have made some mistakes when he formed and created you.Never let people’s words and comments drag you where you don’t belong.

You are wonderfully and fearfully created after God’s own image.You are who you are, you cannot be someone you are not, you cannot live somebody else’s life.People may look at you and see an ordinary person, but you are more than that.

Scripture Reading: PSALMS 139:14

PRAY,PLAN AND IMPLEMENT

You can never plan in life until you have a goal to achieve.Planning means coming up with some strategy on how you want to achieve your goals.
Life requires you to have a plan on how you want to live,how you want to do things.

Planning, give yourself time to think about what you want to do,where exactly do you want to do it, how and what is the expected outcome.In as much as our lives and tomorrow are in the hands of our almighty God and Father, we shouldn’t brush away the fact that He is the same God who gave us power to plan, think, make decisions and choosing between good and bad.
It is very very unfortunate that a lot of people choose to lead direction less lives.
You should have a technical plan of those things that you want to do, cutting putting aside the unwanted ones.

Good planners always put first things first.In the planning world, there is a law of prioritizing. In the planning world,mixing up things means messing up things. If you don’t plan, situations will always catch off guard.Planners know when to walk and when to run.They know when to talk and when to be quite.They know when to stand and when to kneel.There is so much power in planning.You are most likely to make more mistakes in life when you don’t plan.

People who have plans always correct their mistakes and learn from them, but the ones that don’t plan,rather than correcting their mistakes, they get corrected by their mistakes the hard way.
May God and the Father protect you and your families.

Scripture Reading : ECCLESIASTES 9:10

WHEN THE HEAVENS VISIT YOUR LIFE

God still has great things in-store for you, don’t despair, don’t give up.I know a lot has happened, you may have been through some staff on life.Your very same mouth with which you cried, will be filled with laughter.Your very same eyes with which you drop tears every night, are yet to see marvelous things.God is bringing some new staff in your life.

God is restoring the years the locusts have eaten.Your joy is around the corner.It is here.You are yet to put on a smile child of God.You have sung a song of sorrow long enough.The songs of joy are on the way.The word of God says that weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.You may have lost all your loved ones.I am here to announce to you that the time is now, whereby you will no longer say “why me”, but you will say ” try me “.

At times things get tough such that you no longer believe you will ever put on a smile.When God comes in, nothing can stop him.He brings a permanent turnaround in one’s life.He brings the kind of joy which no man can take away.There are people who help you out when you are in trouble only for them to feel big, to brag about it,but God’s blessing makes one rich,and He adds no sorrow into it.Believe,trust, hope, have faith and pray.

Scripture Reading PSALMS 126:1 & 2

EXCUSES: THE PERFECT TOOLS TO BUILD NOTHING

While everyone else was in a hideout because of the Midianites which were so oppressive, Gideon was busy in the threshing floor.The Midianites had destroyed everything which belonged to the Isrielites such that they were left with no choice but to go and hide in the mountains.
Despite all the challenges and pain caused by their enemies, Gideon chose to beat the odds.In life you can never archive anything by making excuses.Gideon would have had a reasonable excuse for not threshing wheat.
Never allow yourself to live a life of excuses.There’s never a kingdom that was built upon excuses.No dream has ever been fulfilled by making excuses.Every time you fill like taking a bold step in the right direction, you come up with one or two excuses.It is time you tell yourself that you will do it anyway.If Gideon did it anyway, you can also do it anyway.
There will be always Midianites in life that come to oppress, frustrate and hinder you,but is it up to you to change the way you think.Take responsibility,rather than making excuses.If you want to be great in life, don’t focus on your weaknesses, but your strengths.Many people who love making excuses also like pointing fingers and blame other people for their failures, which does not help.Excuses never change anything, they only make you feel comfortable in your failures.
It is not only being financially stable that makes your dream come, but how determined you are.Right where there are challenges, opposition and criticism, you can still chose make it.

Scripture Reading : Judges 6:1-11

DEFEATING THE GOLIATHS OF LIFE

In this life there are too many Goliaths that we encounter in our Christian journey. These Goliaths are there to try by all means to hinder us from succeeding in life. Every time you try to push forward in your life, there is a Goliath standing in your way. Some are Goliaths of sin, some are of poverty, some of frustration. The goods news is that these Goliaths of life can still be conquered.

Be optimistic, it takes someone who is focused, someone that knows well very where they belong. Don’t lose the battle before it even starts. Many battles are lost in our minds because we always think that we can’t make it.

When the battle against the giant was just about to begin, Saul armoured David with his own weapons. But David knew he didn’t need Saul’s armour to win the battle, he didn’t need to pretend to be someone else,but the name of the Lord was more than enough for him to overcome the giant. Some battles don’t even need your opinion nor effort to win, but they only depend on who you trust, who you look up to. Even David’s own people thought that he was too small for the giant Goliath. At times we get discouraged by our own friends, our own people from our families. It’s not all about your age, your background, or about how long you have been in the game, but the power is in the name of the Lord.

We do not walk by sight, but by faith, do not be intimidated by the size of the enemy. Not everything that looks big is really that big. At times it is just fear that makes things appear too big to conquer. Never allow the Goliaths of life to defeat you.

Know who’s side you are on. If ever you are going to win in any battle, you need to know very well who’s side you are on. Do not be a double-minded Christian. Set your goals and make sure you know them right well. Follow and pursue them.It doesn’t matter where you are coming from, you should know where you are and where you are going.

Refuse to be loser, refuse to be a failure in life, yes, you may have failed at some point in life, but that doesn’t mean that you are a failure. Trust the name of the Lord. There is still so much power in the name of Jesus.

God Bless You All

SCRIPTURE READING : I SAMUEL 17:1-58

THE FAVOR OF GOD

…………and all these things shall be added unto you. When the Lord favors you, you will find no reasons to run after blessings and some other things. When you are favored, nobody can take it away from you. Even the devil himself can’t stop you, he definitely cannot stand on your way. God’s favor automatically shines upon you, you can’t fake it, you can’t force. Wherever you go, the blessing of God follows you, not the other way round. The favor of God is not earned; it is an unmerited favor from the Lord. God doesn’t need you to have certain qualifications for Him to favor. There are no special requirements, He doesn’t look at what you have or don’t have. He doesn’t even consider your background or anything. You don’t have to be someone else for Him to favor you. Don’t Confuse being rich and being favored. I can have all the things i want in the world ,but still not favored,I can be poor ,but still not favored,Favor is when chooses,picks you and shows you His grace ,love and mercy.

FINDING YOURSELF

The Philistines thought that it was all over about Samson,they thought they were done with him.Little did they realize that his hair was growing back.Little did they know that he would still find himself.They had done all the staff they wanted to do with him.Yes,they had gorged out both his eyes, but Samson never forgot his identity.
I have a message for you: It doesn’t matter what the devil has done to you, to your family ,to your job, to your marriage.He may have stolen all your joy and peace.It doesn’t matter who made who made your life to be what it is today.I know they broke your heart, I know they left you, I know they played and fooled you.The good news is that you can still find yourself.You may have lost everything in your life, but finding yourself plays a paramount role in getting back on your two feet.You may have been discouraged by people and situations.Suicide is not the solution, blaming people won’t help either.The demons have mocked you long enough.
The bible says that when the Philistines were still busy and having fun, mocking him,Samson asked one young to lead him to the central pillars of the building.They thought there was some kind of dancing which Samson wanted to do by the pillars, not knowing it was their end.
After all that you have encountered, always run to the Pillar of your strength, which is God.I know I have made mistakes, I am well aware of all the things I did which I am not proud of, but all I want is the my PILLAR.After all the failures I have encountered, I need the PILLAR.If it be your will Lord, I would rather lose everything else, but FIND MYSELF.
Find yourself before you are found by things
May God bless you all.

Scripture Reading : Judges 16:4_31

YOU ARE UNIQUE

Never allow situations,challenges and failure to rename you.God knows you by name and surname, by your addresses, He knows every detail of your life. He even knows all your struggles. He knows your tears .God’s sees you through.Before you were born, God knew about you , before you were even formed he anointed and ordained you. You are way more than what you think you are.
When God spoke to Jeremiah, He told him of how great he was,but Jeremiah thought that he was way too young for the things which God spoke of.
Then the Lord God said to Jeremiah, ” DON’T SAY YOU ARE TOO YOUNG”
When God created you, there’s greatness of some kind which he created in you.Don’t compare yourself with other people, other pastors, other singers,or other workers.You are who you are for a specific reason.You are unique just as you are.Love and appreciate yourself.See God’s creation in you.

Scripture Reading : Jeremiah 1 : 4-19

MORNING

Lord thank you for grace today.You made me see this day ,through all the threatening situations Lord,here I am because of your unconditional love. Through the waters ,  you carried me Lord,I wasn’t swept away. You healed me from all deadly and threatening sicknesses.I lift up my voice to give you praise and worship today, i lift my hands to you .

LIVING A VICTORIOUS LIFE

Sometimes life throws at you situations that will make you compromise your identity and values.Times that require your full spiritual and physical strength.No matter what comes your way, never lose your spiritual focus, never give up on yourself.Be strong enough not to sell your identity , not to sell your values.Never try to be someone else.In as much as you can be inspired by other great people and role models, be sure to live your life the way God designed it to be.

Your God is bigger than that sickness, He is bigger than your problems.He is bigger the pain you are going through.When hard times come, never forget that you are a child of the Most High God, there is so much power in you.Whatsoever situation which you can’t handle by yourself, give it to the master, surrender it to the Creator.

I know you’ve been crushed,I know you’ve been divorced.I know you’ve been through hell,I understand you lost so many things,But here you are today.Am so glad you never lost your faith.You have all the reasons to thank God, you have all the reasons to give Him all the glory.At times we should learn that some of the so-called good things that we lost were never meant to be ours.God knows what’s yours, He knows you very well, He knows you even by name and addresses.Whatever was meant to be yours shall be yours.

When God wants to lift you,He doesn’t need to consult anybody.What you lost is nothing compared to that which is coming your way.God is going to replace your tears with joy,your suffering with peace.Your failure wasn’t meant to rename you, your problems were not meant to kill you.Live the life God wants you to live.

Remember to thank God for each day that He gives you.Forget not to thank Him  for the food which He places on your table everyday.
May the Grace of God follow you.

Isaiah  40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

HE BROUGHT US THIS FAR

Bless the Name of the Lord today and give thanks to Him for bringing you this far.You may have failed in 2018,that doesn’t mean that you are a failure.You may have made some mistakes, but you are not a mistake.You are a blessing from God. I just want to encourage somebody to set goals for 2019, plan your goals, prepare, pray and pursue.Resolve not to fall for the same traps which blocked your success in 2018.Believe and trust God about your life and future.Just do what God says you should do.

God has great this in store for you this year.You are more than who you think you are.There is so much power of God in you my brother and sister.I pray that God will grant you all the good desires of your heart.May the favor of God follow you.May He lift His Countenance upon you.

GOD WILL DO IT AGAIN

Jude 1
[24]Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.

The Lord who has been keeping you, protecting and providing for you is a faithful God.Some are waiting for your download fall, but I am here to tell you that God is still by your side.

BECAUSE I AM VICTORIOUS

“”No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the LORD.” — Isa 54:17

REJOICE IN THE LORD

Philippians 4
[4]Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

You don’t need to have everything you want in life for you to rejoice in the Lord.God gives permanent peace and joy.The word of God says that we should rejoice in the Lord always.When things get tough along the way,I will rejoice in the Lord.When the enemy attacks,I will rejoice in my Lord.Even if there is no food on the table, that will not take away my joy.
Rejoicing in the Lord doesn’t mean you should rejoice in the death of your loved ones, in your tribulation and situation.But it means that whatever happens around you must not take away your joy in the Lord.With or without , I will be joyful in the Lord.
Joy from above is one thing that people can’t take away from you.I may have all the money I want,but I choose to rejoice in the Lord,and not in my money.I may have all the food I want, all the mansions I ever wanted, but my joy comes from the Lord.Let them rejoice in things, let them rejoice in all the temporary things which they see with their physical eyes.But your permanent joy is from the Lord.
Rejoice in the Lord, and again I say REJOICE.

BREAK YOUR CAMP AND MOVE ON

Deuteronomy 1
[7] It is time to break camp and move on. Go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all the neighboring regions……………..

God destined you for greater things.You need to understand that your current position is not your destination.The fact that you have encountered multiple stops and challenges doesn’t mean you should die there.Refuse to die young, refuse to be sick, refuse to be bound by sin.Refuse to be bound by debt and situations.There is so much power that God invested in you.God wants you to achieve great things.
Most christians sabotage their destiny and future by just sitting in their comfort zone.They don’t want to break their camps and move on.There is a lot that happens in the camps.That’s where they delay themselves, that’s where do a lot of things that drag them back to their past.I understand the situation you are in right now.I understand the corner into which life has pushed you.Yes, they have wronged you, they abused you, used and hurt you.But never get too comfortable in that corner.Learn to let go and let God.Don’t accept having to live your life as a victim.You have all it takes to break that camp and move on.You have stayed in that comfort zone for too long.You have toiled for long enough.You have cried long enough.This is your time to rise and move on.
When you finally decide to break your place of comfort,it doesn’t matter who did what to you.Things will start working for you, they will start moving.Yes,you have received the Lord Jesus as your saviour.I know you have done all good things in your local church.I know you have paid your tithe, you have given your freewill offering, but your journey doesn’t end there.You need to keep moving towards your God-given destination.
It is high time you move forward.Whether you are driving, drive towards your destination.If you are cycling, cycle towards your future.It doesn’t matter whether you are walking , walk to your bright future.Open your eyes and see the future that God has in store for you.
Deal with your past accordingly,break that camp and move on.
May the Grace and favor of God follow you all the days of your life.

NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS THAN WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU

God has greater things in-store for you.Situations shouldn’t determine your life and future because you are far much bigger than that.Don’t set your standards according to what you see, for we do not walk by sight ,but by faith. (2 Corinthians 5:7)For we live by believing and not by seeing.[NLT BIBLE].

Don’t loose heart, never get intimidated by what you see.Your God is bigger than your challenges, He is bigger than your sickness, He is bigger than those obstacles.Without faith , you will live a life of accepting anything that comes your way.You will settle only for smaller things.See a bigger picture about your life.

Your life and future are in the hands of the almighty God.Never let challenges of life push you into a tight corner of desperation.Never let life box you in some corner where you can’t move or do anything.

It’s time to ask yourself these questions, Is this the life which God designed for me? Is what I have all that God wanted me to have? Am I supposed to be where I am right now, doing what I am doing? Are these the right people that I am supposed to be with?

Believe God about your life.Depend on Him.Wait on Him.God is surely going to fulfill what He said He will do in your life.All you have to do,trust Him, listen and obey Him.Let God take over, let Him take control of your life.

God bless you.I pray for showers of blessings upon your life.Amen.

GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU,WHICH NO MAN CAN DESTROY

This is your time to leave haters to hate, Time to leave pretenders to pretend.It is time to focus on what God says and has for you.You are not on this earth by mistake,but God has a purpose for you.God has a wonderful plan for you which even the devil cannot destroy.On this earth, people will always be people, the world will always be the world.Let them talk, let them despise, let the gossip , God’s plan for you still stands, He is not a man that He should lie, neither a son of man that He should change his mind.

You can’t stop people from talking, you surely cannot stop them from changing their minds.But is it in your power to stop them from letting you down and discouraging you.You are a child of God, you have the power of God inside you. You are anointed to be successful.You may encounter difficulties of some sort along the way, God has your back.Stand firm, He will never leave nor forsake you.

When challenges strike, grow bigger,not bitter.Oh how happy I am knowing that I am backed by the heavens. The more challenges, the more I learn to put my trust on God.I am unstoppable.Having no food on the table won’t stop me.I have seen God working in my life.God will perfect that which concerns you.Remember, God’s is,always watching His Word to perform and fulfil it.It is not about where you are, neither where you are coming from, but all about the God who is working in your life.Put your trust in God today, I guarantee you that you will never be disappointed.

GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL

I take this time to thank God for all He has done in my life in this year.God has been faithful to me.He has kept all His promises.I praise His holy Name.I love who He is in my life.

I know and I am aware of all the mistake this year.All the things which I am not proud of.But above all, God still kept me, He still protected me,He still loves me.

Thank you father that you are my strength,you are my provider, you are my saviour.I may not have achieved all the goals which I wanted to achieve.I may not be perfect,but I thank God that I am His child.

MORNING CONFESSION

Psalms 138:8

The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

I have God’s blessing upon my life.I’m wonderfully and fearfully made after the own image of God.I will not be intimidated by situations and challenges.

I refuse to be frustrated, I refuse to be sick.I refuse to be a failure.Success is my portion.Goodness is my portion.I will live to glorify the Name of the Lord. Thank you Lord that my family is blessed.Thank you that our church is blessed.

I declare and decree that I will walk in victory.This is the day that the Lord has made,I will rejoice and be glad in it.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO LIVE IT WITH FRUSTRATION

CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY

I know there is a lot that has happened in your life,you have been through some staff,but life is too short to be bitter, too short to hold grudges.Even through the waves , you can still choose to be happy.Through challenges, you can still choose to be grateful to God.When you know that your God will take you out situations, you will still praise Him through valley of the shadow of death.Just the same way He has kept you until this day,God will take care of you,He will deliver you from all your enemies,from the hand of death. When God comes in, He doesn’t care who wronged you, He doesn’t care who hurt you. He gives you peace and joy.Praise God and thank Him for everything.

ACTING IN FAITH

Mat 14:28

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

The reason we are called believers is because we believe, we believe because we have faith.We have faith because there is God.Each Christian has to have faith and stand firm in what they believe in.

It is time to put your faith into action.In the above portion of scripture,Peter had faith that he too could walk on water.He then proceeded to put his faith into action by coming out of the ship believing that He would not sink.He had so much faith that as long as it was the Lord Jesus, and not somebody else, who was calling him to come,He would make it.

The bible says that it was dark,the waves and the wind were way too much for their ship and opposing them.But Peter still defied those huge waves by faith.He understood that it wasn’t all about the size of the waves, but the amount of faith in Jesus.No matter what life May through at you, faith will always lead you into a world of possibilities.By faith, you can defeat those waves of life, the blowing wind of life and walk over them.

When you have faith, you walk over situations and challenges, but without faith you will walk in them.Activate your faith today and take a bold step forward to what you believing in.

We have a problem in our churches, they are filled with people that only have faith,but not willing to put their faith into action.Act on faith today and see if God would disappoint you.

Be blessed, may God’s grace and favor go with you wherever you are.

BUILDING A STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD (PART 1)

The deeper the foundation is, the higher it allows you to build.If you want to build a mansion, buy and gather material for building a mansion not a stall.Give your mission enough time.Commit yourself to it.It is every Christian’s responsibility to see to it that they have a relationship with God,and have it grow stronger by each day.Building a strong and deep relationship with the Father is much more than just attending church services every Sunday. It is not a day’s journey but a process.

You cannot claim to have a relationship with someone who you don’t talk to at all.Someone you don’t love,someone you don’t appreciate.There is no way one can have a strong relationship with God when their prayer altars are dead.Build your relationship stronger everyday by studying the Word of God and prayer.Refuse to be that kind of Christian who only prays and reads the bible on Sundays during the church service.

Building an unbreakable kind of relationship with God takes determination.It just doesn’t happen.Adhere to all the ways of God.Teach your mouth to speak of things that build.Teach your mind to think of things that build. Your heart and mind to meditate on things that build. You purpose it in your heart to only do things that promote your relationship with God.Thank God for each day that you see, ask for forgiveness and repent when you are wrong.

God’s presence dwells where He’s is praised and worshipped.Let praising and worshipping God be your lifestyle.In most instances,if one’s relationship with God is not straight, it is difficult to have good relationship with people.Wherever you are, may I take this opportunity to encourage you to revive your prayer life.Revive your praise and worship life.

The devil thinks twice before attempting to deceive someone with a strong relationship with God.You cannot be attacked as simple as that.You are backed by the heavens.You have the Father on your side.

Examine your relationship with God today.Are you still the same person that you used to be when you first received Jesus.Do you still have that zeal for God.

Never let anything destroy your relationship with God.May the grace of our Father and Saviour cover you as you through this article.

John 1
[12]But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

GOD IS ABLE

God is faithful enough to obey his word.He will do exactly what he promised to do.Just hold on and trust the Lord about every detail of your life.The very thing which you tried on your own and failed over the years,God can do it for you instantly.God wants you to surrender everything to Him.Give that pain to Him.He can handle your stress and frustration.No pain is bigger that the Lord.There is no sickness that He cannot heal.God cares about you.I know that a lot has happened in your life,but am here to remind you that God loves you and He hasn’t forsaken you.

God is bigger than your enemies, He will deliver you from the fowler’s snare.He will satisfy your mouth with good things.Surely my God will heal you.Your tears shall be wiped away.Every chain of bondage is broken.God is doing a new thing in your life. ISAIAH 43:19.

May God’s favor locate you wherever you are.May you find peace ,love and JOY in your life.May God bless your family and your business.I love you all people.

WHEN YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR JOY COMES FROM

Habakkuk 3:17-18
[17]Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,
[18]yet I will rejoice in the lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!

Understanding Grace… Grace is undeserved. What does undeserved mean? Undeserved means you didn’t earn [labor for] it; you are not worthy of something or someone. Ephesians 2:8-9 reminds and encourages us to know: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, […]

PSALMS 91

I AM READY TO FACE TOMORROW

Because He lives i can face tomorrow,I’m not afraid of of what life may throw at me.I have a a great God by my side. I won’t be intimidated by threatening situations. I am walking in the favor of God.No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I may have failed at some point , but that doesn’t mean I am a failure. God is with me, even through the rough and darkest times, He holds my hand, through the waters  the Lord is with me.

TODAY’S PRAYER

My God,may you bless all my relatives,friends,colleagues, everyone i know and those that i don’t know.I pray in Jesus Name …..AMEN.

…THAT I MAY KNOW HIM, AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION…

…that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.Philippians 3:10(ESV)
Knowing about Jesus is not enough for a christian life, you need to know Him..and [experience] the power of His resurrection.Knowing God doesn’t end there,it is your mandate as a christian to lead a godly life.To become more like Him.

We are not called to judge other fellow christians.God wants us to know Him.To know and understand how He wants us to do things.
We are living in a world where every individual believes that they are right ,and everyone else is getting it wrong.Not to mention our churches today….one ministry,church,assembly or gathering believes that other churches miss it somewhere somehow.

There has been blame game being played in churches, pointing fingers at each other…but the question is: DO WE KNOW HIM AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION?If His death had so much power to raise the bodies of the dead saints back to life, what more the power of His resurrection.There’s no way you may know and experience this power and remain the same.The power that brings a turnaround.

God wants us to unite and preach the gospel of Christ and Him crucified.It is not all about who’s right and who’s wrong.But about knowing Him and experiencing His power.

The Manifestation Of God’s Power In The Death Of Jesus Christ

Matthew 27:52 – The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,

You can not stop God’s plan.He has his own way of handling things.We see the manifestation of His power, that even the dead saints were raised by the power of Jesus’ death. Whatever is of God, born of God and led by God can not be stopped.

IN PURSUIT OF YOUR DREAMS

Don’t die with your dreams still closed inside you.
Successful people chose to follow their dreams rather than people’s opinions.Successful people think big.They don’t just do things for the sake of doing them.

When you have a dream to pursue,you set goals in life.
You need to understand that no one can take it away from you , unless you sell it yourself.Even when things get tougher in life, you don’t abandon your dream, but in fact that’s the right time to stand and support your dream.It’s time to get busy with your dreams, be an employee of your own dreams.

How much time do you give yourself in a day to think deep about your dream?What is it that you are doing which contributes to your dream and goals?What are those little things that stop you from following your dream?You need to identify and confront those things.

…..Judges 6:14
Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have…..
Gideon thought that the Lord was still going to give him strength, but he was told to go in the strength he had.Right from where you are child of God, rise and pursue your dream with the strength you have.

This made me realize that there is a lot of people out there that have strength and potential, the only problem is that they are not aware of that strength.Champions are not afraid of storms, difficulties are just motivations to keep them going.

It doesn’t matter how much time it takes for you to reach your destiny, keep going, keep moving.It may take weeks, months ,years or decades but it surely shall come to pass.

A GOD OF WONDERS

God knows no boundaries,He can not be hindered, He can not be limited.When God shows you His grace, nobody can stop Him, even the devil himself can’t stop this God.He is able to fit you even where you never thought you would fit.He takes a nobody, and makes him a somebody.I have seen God do miracles in my life, I know where He took me from.
