Goodmorning ♥️♥️

I hope your week has been great?

My little  Brother is 6 years old but i see him as 7 years already as his birthday is in some weeks time.(Praise the Lord!)
I drop him off at school some mornings ,normally I take him to the school gate and watch him get into the school premises but i decided that for him to be able to be strong I would have to be walking him halfway and see how he can handle going to school on his own.

My brother doesn’t like this idea because he is scared walking down on his own,he wants me to walk him to the gate. I have to assure him that i am watching him as he goes and would not leave until i see he gets into the school compound.

What am i trying to say here?

As i watched him walk down, it occured to me that this is how God watches over us his children.
There are times that we have this confidence that God is with us as we go through life  just like I was with my brother as we left home.

There are also times when we feel that we are alone and that God has left us and just like my brother; we are scared and feel so down.

Don’t ever feel this way ,God is always there .He is near you,watching you and as you go through life He is with you . He is taking you  to your expected end.

See what David Said in Psalm 121 vs 5 -8

” Jehovah himself will watch over you; he’s always at your side to shelter you safely in his presence. He’s protecting you from all danger both day and night. He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. You will be guarded by God himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore!”
Psalms 121:5‭-‬8 TPT.

So when times come that you feel alone.Remember that God himself is watching over you.Do not fear.He is with us to the end.

Shalom!♥️♥️♥️


Hello everyone!

How has it been ?

I do not have a title for todays post .

This is something that came to mind and I thought i should share..

On Sunday ,before evening prayers with Family,i was on Whatsapp chatting with some friemds.I went out of my bedroom to join prayers but as prayers went on i found myself opening my whatsapp.😔😔😔


 Am I the only one who has done this????.

 Ok,not just at home.What of during church service,as the sermon is going on we go through Social Media and feel like there’s nothing wrong with it.


 If Jesus came to my house yesterday to visit and joined in the evening prayers. I Don’t need to tell you how well behaved I would be.LOL!!
 But isn’t he present when two or three are gathered?Isnt he there watching us?Does he have to be physically present before we do the right things that need to be done?

 I ask,if Jesus came to visit as we carried out our normal daily activities,will you be comfortable having him around?Would you still see that movie?Use that Curse Word? Quickly scan through the pages of scripture to comfort yourself that you opened the bible   today? If he was in the midst of your friends ,would you be comfortable with him there as you discuss?

The truth is, if Jesus came to our homes ,we would make sure things are set right.We sure know the things we need to do ,but we dont do it.

Its time we took our Christain lives seriously brethren.As I write this I am also examining  myself.No more shallow Christianity,lets move on to deeper realms in the Lord.
 It’s time for us to be people who please the Lord in all things ,striving to have a wonderful  relationship with him.

Jesus may not be coming to your house but one day he will return to the world.Will he find you ready?

Shalom!♥️♥️♥️.

” In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Genesis 1:1‭-‬3

“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord , and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God , thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord . Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:..” Ezekiel 37 :1-5 .

“And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.”
Luke 5:3‭-‬6

Noticed anything in the above bible verses? Maybe theres something else you noticed .
But i have something i want to bring out here.
All the situations seen were what i will call impossible situations,but something turned these situations around; the WORD of GOD.

I can not over emphasize the power in the word of God .It changes everything. In the beginning,the earth was without form and void but what was at the beginning ?
The word!.
Words were the tools God used to create all things. If i decide today to make a nice dish,i wouldnt go into the kitchen and snap my fingers hoping the dish in my head will appear right before me .I would use certain ingredients to make my meal.
But we see God who created something out of nothing.By his words mixed with faith he framed the worlds.Isn’t this amazing?. The earth without form and with darkness around it , had light by the word of God.

Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones saw a situation that looked humanly impossible ,when God asked him if the bones could have life.He said “Lord thou knowest” but God told him to prophesy to the bones.
God was like “let out the word of God Ezekiel! “. 😁😁
You sure know what happened to the bones.They came back to life!

Simon was told to launch out into the deep and let down his net for a catch,having toiled all night without having anything he obeyed the “word” of the Lord.

What am i driving at? The power in Gods word.The power to create,the power to give life ,the power to do the impossible. People of God we have a tool in our hands. Its time to put Gods word in our hearts and mouth .Begin to pray for God to constantly fix your eyes on his power and not the present situations you may find yourself . The conditions do not have to be favourable and so encouraging before you act on the word of God. If God has spoken ,we can say like Peter “Nevertheless,i will let down my net”

In the face of temptations or attack ,the word of God is the weapon that we can use to win that great battle.Most of the time we tend to forget this fact and when fears,problems and sickness set in we begin to fret.

Today,i encourage you to rest in Gods word.His word is power. He exalts his word more than his name. Tap into the power in Gods word today.Keep speaking it and let this words be in your heart and mouth so that you can be able to apply it at every point in your life.

Tikvah.

Quick Reminder!

Remember Joseph of Arimathea?


The man who took responsibility for the burial of Jesus
He was the member of the Sanhedrin.
But he identified with Christ in his day regardless of what people would have thought .He had to give Jesus a good burial.
Was it very convenient for him as a member of Jewish council to identify with Jesus? I am sure it wasn’t. He did it anyway.

Remember the woman who anointed Jesus in Luke 7? It was not very convenient for her .That evening Jesus was invited to Simon the Pharisees home , a woman of questionable character could not have been seen in such a place but She carried on anyway ,anointing his feet and wiping his feet with her hair.

We dont live by convenience,we live by conviction.
We are called to a life of sacrifice as believers. In serving Christ,we must be willing or able to loose something in order to gain Christ, it could be our position as was with Joseph of Arimathea or our riches/possessions like the woman with the alabaster Jar.

We may be worried about our commitment but for Jesus its all worth it. Our greatest example Jesus, gave himself for our freedom today.

Remember,give it all!Whatever that is given to God or done for Him will definitely be seen as a good deed.

Have a blessed week
Tikvah❤

What would your testimony be?

What would your testimony be?

Hello Everyone,Greetings in the name of Jesus.

I was reading the book of Hebrews last week with my Mom and something struck me in Hebrews chapter 11 verse 5b about Enoch…”for before his translation he had this testimony that he pleased God”.

 In the book of Genesis Chapter 5 where Enoch was mentioned,what is that  one notable thing said?

“He walked with God”.

 For me,this is the highest thing for a believer [  to please God]. God  is looking at the earth today to  find people that are fully committed to him? And not just partially serving him. God is looking for people who are out to seek him whole heartedly not the “me! Me! “Christains  or the “Lord please give me,give me”.
 We should get to that point that we are focused on pleasing him and seeking what ways we can make him (Christ) known .

 Years Ago,the Lord gave me a scripture ;
 ” No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4 KJV.

 Note that word ” please ” because thats what the Lord desires from his children.Imagine you as a father and your child  displeases you a lot of times. Would you be glad? Who wants a child who breaks their heart?No one! .How much more should we seek to please our heavenly father.
 Let us be men who  search  out ways to please him .May we immerse ourselves with the word of God,give ourselves wholly to prayer , spread the gospel to the dying world, and stay unspotted from the world.
 May our hearts be opened to the Spirit who will enable us to be men that please God.
What would our testimony be when we are no more? What can Gods testimony of us be?
May God take us and keep us in that place where pleasing him is our only desire.

 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,  Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Joy

Glory to God for a new day!

Today i will be sharing something i shared with a group of friends last week Wednesday. It was Titled Joy. I read it again this morning and thought i should share what i sent to them.

Ok,Join me!.

Greeting everyone in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
How has your week been so far?
I am grateful to God for the opportunity to be bringing you again this weeks digest.

JOY

What does Joy mean to the believer?

A popular author Rick Warren defined Joy as “the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life,the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be alright, and the determined choice to praise God in every situation.

 During my compulsory national service year, i made a new friend at the office where i worked .She  is also a lover of God and I go to visit her during my free time and we would talk  a lot. One of the things i admired about her was the smile she always had on .I dont think there was ever a day i saw her looking sad or angry.There was a time, i asked  how she always looked happy with a smile because i know that i can have my own “down days”.
 Her reply was ” its Joy in the spirit oh”
If a person saw her smiling they will think she just received a credit alert (LOL)or maybe she heard some good news .But do you know that  there were times we had some heart to heart talk and i discovered that she had some little issues but she  chose to remain joyful.

This should stir us now and always to remain joyful.It is an obligation for us as believers to ever be joyful.In Pauls letter to the Philippians  ,what was his main focus of that letter? Was it not Joy? We are familiar with that book and the circumstances that surrounded Paul that period.He was in prison ,unsure of what will happen to him next but he encouraged the Phillipains to be Joyful no matter what.. …”again i say rejoice”(phil 4 vs 4)
 Lastly,its in your fellowship with the Lord that your Joy can be perfect.Remain Joyful.

The Joy of the Lord is Our strength,

Yes, in the good times……be joyful!

In the bad times…be joyful!.We have a God who has not lost control over things

Have a blessed Tuesday ❤

Wait!

Hope we are all doing ok?
Welcome to a new month!
May God continue to keep us.
Amen.

So todays topic is WAIT.

Is waiting easy for us? Imagine going to an eatery ,you make your order and you are told it will be ready in the next five minutes,you sit down and  wait trying to act normal as other people troop in and out with their orders.Fifteen minutes later,the attendant informs you that you will have to wait for some more minutes  .Forty minutes pass and nothing yet,you feel uneasy  and walk up and talk to them…

What am i trying to say?Waiting sometimes can be hard,very hard.
We have been at that point in our lives when we pray and ask the lord for something ,you feel assured after prayer.Then the days turn to weeks,then months and even  years.

You ask yourself.
“Didnt God speak to me?” “Didnt i hear well?” “Was that vision from God?”
And just like the man at the eatery who saw other people coming in and leaving almost immediately. You wonder why other people get their prayers answered and you are just waiting for your change to come. GOD USES WAITING TO CHANGE US.

Yes!you read that right. In the waiting season ,he is working in your life.Most times our response to waiting is doubt. This shouldnt be but we should allow God work through us .

We need to ask God what he would have us do in that waiting season.Take off the garment of doubt and anxiety and LET GOD.

Our examples in scriptures, from Abraham,Hannah,Joseph etc should encourage us to hold on.If God has spoken a thing ,is he not faithful to keep to his Words?.He will never alter the words that come out of his lips. He is too faithful to fail.

Immerse yourself in God’s word, That is one sure thing that never fails. Like Apostle Paul we should say “For i know whom i have believed  and i am persuaded…”

God bless you.

Welcome to JUNE!!

I am so grateful to God for a new month .I know a lot of things have been going on in the world lately but i still thank God. He is always in the midst of the storm right? So tell me…What are you grateful for today?

Life?family?Your children? Home? Job.?

Its a new month today, start this day with a grateful heart!

And if you dont have anything to be grateful or thankful for…..

Just thank God for life because we are here today because of his grace.

Happy new month guys!

P.S. If you are reading this post,i am grateful to God for making it possible…

Be grateful!

Reckless love

Hi Dearies!

I Did not plan putting up any post tonight but i was listening to Cory Asburys song “Reckless love” and decided to share my thoughts.

As we are in the holy week i would like us to reflect on what our saviour Jesus,did for on the cross.Some of us tend to celebrate easter without an understanding of what it really means.Whatever Christ did was for you and me . As we go about this week lets carry the consciousness that Christ had you in mind on that cross and lets constantly carry about in our body the dying of the Lord Jesus .

Remember the parable of the lost sheep?(Matthew 18 verse 13).How the man left the ninety-nine to seek the missing one.His desire is that not one of us would perish.I want us to constantly remind ourselves of the goodness of the Lord this season,an act of love that should not be taken for granted.

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God!

WELCOME TO APRIL

Welcome to the new month people!Grateful to be alive,the lord has been merciful to us and my prayer is that we see more months this year 2020 Amen!

I woke up to realise that the holy week is drawing near.We would be celebrating the palm sunday on the 5th of this month down to Good friday and then Easter Sunday!

As i prayed with my brother this morning i thanked God for his love for us which is great and can not fully be understood.Most of us tend to forget the significance of this season-Not only does it show that Christ suffered for us but it shows his GRACE which has saved us.As i write this i remember the lyrics of Cece Winans song “it was not easy but it was worth it”…..His death was not easy but he went on the cross for you and for me.I thought about his death on the cross ,i just kept thanking God because love took him there and he had me in mind!

Beloved let us not take this sacrifice of our Lord Jesus for granted as this is the time to draw close to God. This Easter take out time for God.If he has not been taking first place in your life,now let him TOP your list.

Hebrews 12 verse 1 says ” Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight,and the sin which doth so easily beset us,and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”

This Easter lay aside every weight,every sin that easily besets you.There must first be a laying aside before you can “run”.Do you know that there are weights and there are sins?Weights slow you down in your walk with God. Check your life,if what you are doing does not glorify God and does not promote his kingdom.It is a weight….it will definitely slow you down.Get rid of those weights!

Ask yourself this..what manner of Person am i? Let us be challenged to have a better relationship with God this season and if you are already doing so,you are doing Great,i ask that you keep it up!

May God help us and see us through.Amen!
