FROM VICTIM TO VICTOR

The Word of God refers to the devil as a thief.The KJV bible says : the thief doesn’t come, but he only comes to steal ,to kill and to destroy.Meaning that the devil will never come to bless you , to give you good things, to give you joy.There are certain things that may seem to be good for you, but as long as they don’t come from God, they contain poison of some kind in them, which the devil will use to destroy your life.He is only after destroying that which you have.
Beware of the devil’s schemes, once he comes into your life, he first steals your joy, steals everything you have, then kills you spiritually. HE wants you to die without Christ, and thus he destroys you.
How to become a victor,
1.Read,study and know the Word of God.
2.Pray at all times.(In accordance with the Word)
3.Refuse to be a VICTIM by confessing the Word of God in your life.
4.Know what the devil is up to.
II Corinthians 2:11
I have done this to keep Satan from getting the better of us. We all know what goes on in his mind.

John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

May the Lord bless and uplift you.

JEHOVAH JIREH

He is a righteous God, a God that forgives and gives, a God that respect his promises, a God that never fails, the provider, Jehovah Jireh.He never created you to be a begger . He puts food on your table.

“I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous (those in right standing with God) abandoned Or his descendants pleading for bread. Psalms 37:25
” — Ps 37:25

OVERCOMING MEDIOCRITY

Overcoming mediocrity requires a single-minded someone.Someone that will not let things happen, but instead ,make things happen.Somehow , you are who you are ,where you are , doing what you are doing  because of the choices that you made.

I have learned it in life that one shouldn’t compromise their christian values. No matter how tough things may seem , you should always keep your standards as a christian.Never make permanent decisions under temporary circumstances.Now the bible says Esau sold his birthright just for a plate of soup. Would you sell your christian rights for that temporary piece of a bribe, would you sell your values because of your unbelieving boy or girlfriend.

We live in a world where a lot is happening , but it is certain that those who wait on the Lord will not be put to shame. In a world full of crime, you can still choose to be who God wants you to be. In a world full of  hypocrisy, you can still stand and defend your  christian values.It’s not about where you live , but its about how much you value your God and your spiritual life.

Genesis 25 vs 26-34

Evaluate the value of that which you are trading your identity for, your values, your integrity. A lot of Christians have stumbled and fallen along the way because of small and temporary things.Never undermine your God just because you want to please a friend or someone else.This is your God, and this is your life.Choose carefully today the direction which you want to take.

TIME TO ARISE

You can not win your battles by running away from them, face the enemy, face your challenges,be strong, rebuke that sickness , rebuke that pain, refuse to live under the devil’s threat, refuse to be intimidated.More importantly, face all your fears, be a champion.You can still do it.Never listen to the discouraging voice of the enemy nor the cowards.Your time to shine has come, and it is now.

Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (2) “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.

David did not defeat Goliath by running away,he stood up to him.

LORD, OH HOW GREAT THOU ART


O

Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

And when I think of God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

THE POWER OF KNOWING YOUR IDENTITY

God knows exactly where He is taking you to,Our God is not confused,He is faithful to keep all His promises.It is of paramount importance for one to know where they are coming from , where they are and where they are going.Most people lose it on the christian journey because  they don’t know or they forget who they are in the Lord.Now the bible says:

1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Never allow the devil to intimidate you, God gave you power and authority,never let the past haunt your life.You belong to God who  called out of darkness into His marvelous light.Once you identify yourself and realize the power that is in you, you will be unstoppable, nothing from the devil will stand on your way way to hinder you.You will pray like a chosen one, sing like a chosen one, worship and praise like a chosen one.

IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH

In the valley of the shadow of death.

There is something that we need to understand here…
Psalms 23

[4]Even when I WALK through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

The bible doesn’t say even when I sleep ,stay or sit..but it says EVEN WHEN I WALK…..
In the valley of the shadow of death..is not a place to stay, make permanent residence.In the light of Psalms 23:4. The word says, even I WALK through….meaning it is a season that just comes and goes by.You don’t stay there but WALK.
When tough times come, never make yourself comfortable there, it’s not your destiny.Don’t give up on God and yourself.Just WALK through.
You may be feeling like you are in the valley of the shadow of death in your spiritual life, in your marriage, in your family, in your business, carrier or whichever aspect of your life…..You are not there forever child of God.

May God lift you and bless you.

HIS GREATNESS IS BEYOND OUR UNDERSTANDING

Dear Lord, When I look at humanity, I ask myself, who else could do this,Father you are exalted, there is no one like you.When I look at all that you created, I see your greatness, I see your power, When I look at the stars above , my heart is filled with praises.

A God that doesn’t disappoint,oh what a marvelous saviour.Help me Lord,all the days of my life I want to worship and give you praise.

He is a God that doesn’t forget, He always keeps all His promises.The only favor that you can do yourself is to believe Him and His Word.

GOD’S PRINCIPLES

cascade-clouds-cool-wallpaper-210186If something causes you to turn away from God, then its definitely not from Him.Be it love relationship,job,carrier or friends. Wait, ask yourself this question: IS GOD REALLY PLEASED WITH WHAT YOU ARE DOING. When God is pleased with what you are doing, and you are happy with it too. then you will succeed.

When God blesses you, never allow yourself to only enjoy the blessings and yet forget about God.Which type of a christian are you.
1;Those which only pray when everything is flowing smoothly in their lives.
2;Those which only pray when things are tough.
God has not called us to be part-time believers, but to follow Him through,thank Him when all is well, thank Him even when you are faced with difficulties and challenges.

Philippians 4:8 King James Version (KJV)

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Precious Jesus

But there is a man that died in our place , there is a man that was crucified in our behalf.He  gave His life to reconcile us with God.No matter how much the devil tries to discourage you, always remember that Christ Jesus died to take away all your sins, all your shame, we wouldn’t be where we are today if Jesus didn’t die for us.Be thankful today, Pray and thank God for the precious blood of Jesus which was shed to cleanse you.

1st John 4:9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

Todays Prayer

Father, thank you for our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us, thank you Lord for forgiving all our sins, thank for all the blessings that you have given us. Thank you Lord for the precious gift life that you gave us.Lord under your wings keep me, make me strong, make me see all the wonderful things which you done in my life. I was lost and you found me, you made me who I am today.

….Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni….

WORSHIP HIM

Do you have time to worship God.

Give yourself enough time to worship God.Not because he has done something in your life or family,but because he is worthy of all the praise and glory.

Even if you dont have food on the table , just worship him.Right from your hospital bed, worship the King of Kings.

Employed or unemployed, give him worship, even if the situation doesnt allow you,but give him praise,just call on His Name.

There is so much power in worshiping His Holy Name.

…Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni…

 

Restoration Time

“”And I will compensate you for the years That the swarming locust has eaten, The creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust— My great army which I sent among you.

” — Joel 2:25

Whatever the devil robbed you of, it’s coming back in hundred fold, your spiritual life is being restored, you will be a prayer worrier again.God is taking you to a whole new level, be ready for a great change.No matter how much time it taker, if ever that car,house, wife, husband, marriage is yours, God will make sure it comes to you.#Let them shut their doors for me, I would rather be outside with my God.

….PASTOR MTHOKOZISI NYANDENI….

Making The Right Choices

It doesn’t matter where and how you started,you can still change your destiny
It doesn’t matter how many times you have tried and failed,you can still make in life.Just from where you are right now,take a bold step in the direction,focus on Him that died for you.
It is not about who did what to you in the past,but its all about where you are determined to go from your current point.
Poeple will call you names,will say that you are a failure, will say that you are nothing.But there is so much power in pressing on.
Remember, when David was overwhelmed and distressed,the bible says he encouraged himself in the Lord (1st Samuel 30vs6.
Choose today who you want to be with, where you want to be,and how you want to get there.
Most of the times the people that you hang around with, contribute to your destiny.Spend time with giants that will challenge you,encourage you.
If you know you are a man or woman of God,then spend time and hang around with people that don’t even fear God.
Why spend time with people that let you down,people that discourage you.Rather, spend time with people which are on the same page as you.
Examine your life today,check your surroundings,check your friends.
….PASTOR MTHOKOZISI NYANDENI….

Resist The Devil

James 4:7-8

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Making sure that your relationship with God is right, obeying God and His Word, leading a clean life automatically makes the the enemy flee.It makes him realize that he has no room in your life.

The bible says, resist the devil, and he will flee, some people out there are what they are ,who they are and where they are, doing what they do because of friends, if you can’t change them,why not flee.

At times resisting the devil may cost you your friends, your job and other things.

…Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni…

You Are Wonderfully And Fearfully Created

You might have made big mistakes in your life,but you are not a mistake yourself. You might have had rough pages of life.Rejected, Sidelined,Disowned and all kinds of bad things have happened in your life, but you can still rise to the occasion.See yourself big.Change the way you look at yourself, you’re definitely not what the world says you are.It doesn’t matter how many times people call you names, the only problem is when you call yourself names.It is not your girlfriend that holds your life, and definitely not your boyfriend,but God the creator.

You can still be a woman or a man God created you to be.Forget the past and move on.

You are moving on the power of God,Look,God is doing something new in your life.

Psalms 139

[14]Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

Refuse To Be A Church Goer

I am not sure if I should say fortunately or unfortunately, we are living in a society that has turned away from God.They go to church every Sunday, some attend all the mid-week church services, they pray in tounges. They no longer fear God.

They only obey God or listen to the pastor on terms and conditions.

In a society whereby a pastor is not recognized or respected as a man of God if he doesn’t drive.

Inasmuch as it is good to have a big mansion, fancy cars, fancy auditorium, let’s not forget our basics.

The reason we go to church, the reason we worship, the reason we praise.

Romans 12:1:1-3

…Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni…

……Fear Not……

Psalm 91:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

A thousand may fall at your side.And ten thousand at your right hand,

But danger will not come near you.

God is on your side, there’s absolutely nothing to be scared of, through the darkest parts of your journey,He’s going to hide under His feathers.

I declare today that no witchcraft set against you shall prosper, All the snares are being broken, Look you’re a great man , woman of God.He knows you by name, He even knows your address.Your destiny is in His care.

Never let people to use the devil to intimidate you, Never ever let the devil use people to intimidate you.You have a great God by your side.

When everything is flowing smoothly in your life, pray and thank God.

When things are tough, pray and trust.

….Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni….

God is forever faithful, He will never contradict his own Word.He will do exactly what He promised to do in your life, it’s just a matter of time. Hang in there, hold on, just press on.

The pain you feel will go, the challenges you’re faced with ,will pass.He is the God that does miracles.

You will not die poor, you won’t fail forever, let them mock, let them discuss you.

In His right time, God will heal your marriage, your financial situation.

Thank Him today for the breath of life which He’s giving you each day

PASTOR Mthokozisi Nyandeni

Proverbs 4:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Watch over your heart with all diligence,
For from it flow the springs of life.

It is every christian’s duty to watch how they walk, how they talk, how they take decisions.

In other words, there’s no way one can diligently guard a heart that doesn’t have Jesus, give your heart to the saviour.

Then you won’t just talk, some things are just to be kept to ourselves, lest they destroy the church, brethren or families.

Your heart is your responsibility.

….PASTOR MTHOKOZISI NYANDENI….

No1Cor 10:13 AMP Bible

“No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].” —

He is still the same God that gives you power when you feel like you won’t make it.He has given you power, authority and sound mind to manage whatever you encounter.

God is about to amaze you

Isaiah 43:19 – NET Bible
“Look, I am about to do something new. Now it begins to happen! Do you not recognize it? Yes, I will make a road in the desert and paths in the wilderness.

Trust God with your life and future, each morning you get up, thank God and believe Him for greater things.

Your beginning may have been small, but,look now, God is just about to turn your life around.It is possible, and yes it is.

May you prosper in your life , love to see His goodness.

When God Favors You

When the almighty God decides to bless you, He doesn’t consult any specialists,experts or country’s government.He doesn’t even have to throw a surprise party….Psalms 23:5 says… He prepares a table before you…right in the presence of those who despise you, those who said you won’t make it, those who hate you.

Prophetic word for you… I declare that God is going to favor you, give you that Job, fix that marriage, heal that pain and sickness.

You are walking in His favor.

New Life In Through Christ

2 Corinthians 5:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
…………………………………………………………….

There is no way one can receive Jesus Christ and remain the same.

He changes things, When you truly accept Him, a turnaround is guaranteed.

Doesn’t matter where you come from, what you have or don’t have.Whether you’re cycling, driving or pedestrian..the bottom line is..you’re a new creature.

It’s not too late for you today, you can still find peace in the Lord.

…Pastor Mthokozisi Nyandeni….

There’s Every Reason To Be Grateful

One thing about life:
Life has seasons, some seasons are tough, some tough and some sloppy,
Some seasons are fruitful and some sorrowful
Some seasons come with good news and joy
Some seasons are the BEST, and some the WORST
Some seasons bring people around you ,and some seasons come only to take
away people around.
One thing about God:
He has been with me throughout the life journey,
HIS NAME IS FAITHFUL
#akukapheli ngami –
To God be the glory

By Pastor M.Nyandeni

Lamentations 3:22-23
[22]The faithful love of the lord never ends! His mercies never cease.
[23]Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

I am blessed, unstoppable, a child of God.

Enjoy this day, for it is indeed the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
