You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:5-11 NLT).

Beloved, I was having a conversation with someone yesterday afternoon about some of the situations the Lord would place us in just so we learn humility and though you may indeed have to eat large portions of humble pie, once you have an understanding of where He is taking you, you will swallow your pride and just humbly go through the process. After my conversation, I was listening to someone share her testimony of the things herself and her husband had to go through to get to where they were now and she advised that there are some situations we find ourselves that we may just have to say; “let it be so for now” and that phrase hit my spirit.

Our feature text tells us that Jesus put aside His position… He put aside all His divine privileges and He humbled Himself in obedience to God. HE HUMBLED HIMSELF! That’s a deliberate act. He made the decision to do so and we know that… humility comes before honor (Proverbs 15:33 NIV). It was after He humbled Himself that …God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name.

I can just imagine that there were moments when He may have said to Himself; “how do I do this?” Or “why am I doing this?” But God’s purpose and wisdom answered back saying “let it be so for now”.

Beloved, Scripture says… and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another [tie on the servant’s apron], for God is opposed to the proud [the disdainful, the presumptuous, and He defeats them], but He gives grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5 AMP). Another Scripture says… He gives His grace [His undeserved favor] to the humble [those who give up self-importance].

Beloved, are you making decisions to be humble when the opportunity arises? It may seem unfair. Your ego may want to stand in the way but you should be able to say to yourself; “let it be so for now”. You must disregard the shame and focus on Jesus… who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work] (Hebrews 12:2 AMP).

17. July 2017 · Comments Off on DEALING WITH PRIDE · Categories: Grace, Humility, Jesus Christ, Pride

“You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you. Your rich commerce led you to violence, and you sinned. So I banished you in disgrace from the mountain of God. I expelled you, O mighty guardian, from your place among the stones of fire. YOUR HEART WAS FILLED WITH PRIDE BECAUSE OF ALL YOUR BEAUTY. Your wisdom was corrupted by your love of splendor. So I threw you to the ground and exposed you to the curious gaze of kings (Ezekiel 28:15-17 NLT).

Beloved, though the above message was sent to the king of Tyre, it’s been said that it gives us an idea of how God viewed Satan before he fell to evil. Then Pride set in; he tried to make himself equal to God AND DOWN HE WENT.

Unfortunately, there are people that have the opportunity to be in certain positions or are able to do certain things that others struggle to do and there’s the tendency to see yourself as better than others, forgetting that its God’s grace that enables you to be who you are. God wants to remind us that He absolutely hates pride.

Paul said that because of the amount of revelation he had received from God, he could easily boast but God made sure he couldn’t. Paul said… to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time He said, “My grace is all you need…” (2 Corinthians 12:6-9 NLT)

Paul then says… to everyone… not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think… (Romans 12:3 NKJV). The Amplified Classic Edition says… not to estimate and THINK OF HIMSELF MORE HIGHLY THAN HE OUGHT [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance]… The New Living Translation says… DON’T THINK YOU ARE BETTER THAN YOU REALLY ARE…

Instead, he says… Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself… (Philippians 2:5-8 NLT)

Beloved, satan was once privileged to be highly placed in heaven with God until his pride (not those things we classify as sin in our own eyes) led to rebellion which got him kicked out of heaven. Pride was how this devil that we now know to be our greatest enemy started. The undetected sins of the heart that many don’t even see as sin are very dangerous. So, let’s examine our hearts and if there’s any pride found, pray for the grace to walk in humility.

15. July 2017 · Comments Off on PERSEVERING THE SILENT TREATMENT · Categories: Grace, Jesus Christ, Mercy, Patience, Perseverance, Waiting, Worship

And behold, a woman who was a Canaanite from that district came out and, with a [loud, troublesomely urgent] cry, begged, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably and distressingly and cruelly possessed by a demon! BUT HE DID NOT ANSWER HER A WORD. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, send her away, for she is crying out after us (Matthew 15:22-23 AMPC).

Beloved, have you ever been in a situation where you desperately need the Lord’s intervention and it seems like He is giving you the silent treatment? Does it mean He doesn’t want you to bother Him and hopes that somehow you would eventually get the memo? I don’t think so, but what do you do when you cry out to Jesus and get no response? This woman was in a desperate situation and begged Jesus to help but He ignored her. But did she give up? No! She pumped up the volume until she became a nuisance to His disciples.

That’s the kind of prayer that would make people not want to sit next to you in church because they know you would disturb their comfort. A pastor once said she was in her office one day and disturbed from the noise coming from a lady outside her door, had to ask someone to see if she was alright. She was alright. Just desperately in need of an intervention. This was the Canaanite woman’s case. But that still didn’t do it. Jesus basically said that as an outsider, she wasn’t on His agenda. However, she still didn’t give up. What did she do?… Then she came and WORSHIPED HIM, saying, “Lord, help me!” (Matthew 15:25 NKJV)

Beloved, she WORSHIPED HIM. When you’ve done everything you know to do. Don’t give up. Just WORSHIP HIM. I’ve been told that’s one of the greatest gifts and weapons I’ve got. I really didn’t understand it then but it took the silent years of the Lord to bring the worshipper out of me.

Next, Jesus taught a lesson in humility. Jesus said… “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” (Matthew 15:26 NKJV). A proud person would say “please don’t insult me because I’m begging you for help”. But not this woman. She knew Jesus was her only solution so she humbled herself and she continued to appeal to his mercy and grace (unmerited favour)… And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! LET IT BE TO YOU AS YOU DESIRE.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour (Matthew 15:27-28 NKJV).

Beloved, what did it. WORSHIP… HUMILITY… APPEALING TO HIS GRACE AND MERCY… kept her faith going and brought about her desire. Why not try it and see where it lands you instead of getting frustrated or giving up.

When the centurion heard of Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to Him, requesting Him to come and make his bond servant well. And when they reached Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, SAYING, HE IS WORTHY THAT YOU SHOULD DO THIS FOR HIM, FOR HE LOVES OUR NATION AND HE BUILT US OUR SYNAGOGUE [AT HIS OWN EXPENSE]. And Jesus went with them. But when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent [some] friends to Him, saying, Lord, do not trouble [Yourself], FOR I AM NOT SUFFICIENTLY WORTHY TO HAVE YOU COME UNDER MY ROOF; NEITHER DID I CONSIDER MYSELF WORTHY TO COME TO YOU. But [just] speak a word, and my servant boy will be healed (Luke 7:3-7 AMPC).

Beloved, reading the story of the centurion whose servant was ill and needed the intervention of Jesus, while the focus of our feature text has always been on the man’s faith, there’s also some other detail in Luke’s version of the story worth noticing. The Jewish elders felt the centurion was a very worthy candidate to receive from Jesus purely based on his works but, the centurion didn’t think so. He knew it was all about Jesus and not his own works but can you imagine sitting around such people all day long and what their flattery can do to one? This is something a lot of us can easily fall for. I’m also guilty. There are times I get so frustrated with God when He is not answering me that I’m tempted to start to recount the things I’ve done or given up for Him but then I immediately come to my senses… Lord please forgive me!

But I absolutely love this man’s humility. Regardless of what he had done and what people felt about him, he felt… I am nothing. I am not worthy. You’ve also got to be weary of those that praise you and their different agendas. I once used to know someone that whenever they call me, they first start by singing my praises but you just know they want something from you and I’m like what do you want? Here, in this story we’ve got the Jewish elders report versus his friends report. I’m sure you know the Jewish elders had an agenda based on their keen interest in the ministry of Jesus but our centurion was clever enough not to get caught up in it.

Beloved, the bible says… Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but A PERSON IS TESTED BY BEING PRAISED (Proverbs 27:21 NLT). What does human praise do to you and your ego? Could it be robbing you of anything?

01. February 2017 · Comments Off on IN PURSUIT OF HIS GLORY · Categories: favor, Glory, God's Plan, Grace, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Restoration

And My God shall supply all your need according to His riches IN GLORY by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NKJV).

Beloved, last Sunday, in church, as I listened to what the Holy Spirit was saying about our feature text, the word “in glory” stood out to me and the Lord began to talk to me about the fact that everything I ever need is found in His glory. I couldn’t shake the word and on Monday, as I joined my prayer partner in prayer, it’s all we could talk about.

We began to talk about Moses who told the Lord… If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know Your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor… The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.” Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place…The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.” Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” (Exodus 33:13-18 NLT)

New King James Version says… “Please, show me Your glory.”

Beloved, this ought to be your prayer which is that… If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place… Please, show me Your glory…

As it happens, our prayer experience moved in a way that we hadn’t experienced in a while and the last time we met before then, we humbly came before the Lord to ask for a strategy for moving forward and for some strange reason, we struggled with weakness that weekend. My friend was even given drip because she was worn out. However, as we came together, the Lord took us to what Apostle Paul prayed for.

He said… that He would grant you, according to the riches of HIS GLORY, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians 3:16 NKJV).

HIS GLORY… There’s that word again… The New Living translation says… I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit.

Beloved, whatever you need; be it strength or whatever, you would find it when you go after His glory and our prayer should be to pray for His glory to come down like the song that says… “We wait for You… To walk in the room… Here we are standing in Your presence… Shekinah glory come down… Release the fullness of Your Spirit

Beloved, if you are looking for the word from the Lord going forward, it is that you pursue His glory. Meditate on Scriptures and worship songs that speak of His glory and as you do so, ask for His glory to come down till it crushes everything that’s not of Him in and around you and grants you access to everything stored up in His glory.

07. January 2017 · Comments Off on APPRECIATING THE GRACE OF GOD · Categories: God's Plan, Grace, Jesus Christ

…I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might leave me; but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me. So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength] (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 AMP).

Beloved, do you know that there’s a kind of grace that would help you keep a cool temperament and persevere in the face of insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles? If there’s anything this past year that has just gone by has taught me to appreciate, it is the grace of God. There were many times I found myself in certain situations – situations that would normally frustrate the life out of me but I was able to bear it. In those moments, I had to ask myself “how am I able to cope with this?” but then I remember what the Lord said… there’s a grace over your life… my grace is sufficient for you. The kind of grace that doesn’t even make one look like the things you’ve been through and as I listened to people’s testimonies on the 31st of December of how they were able to survive in 2016, I remember telling someone that we are entering a season where we would find that we would appreciate the grace of God more than anything.

While people are boasting of material things, the houses, the cars, the designer outfits and everything else like Apostle Paul, you would find yourself boasting of the grace of God., People are getting to know more and more that it’s only the grace of God that has kept me and it is what would continue to keep me.

Apostle Paul said… BUT BY THE [REMARKABLE] GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM, and His grace toward me was not without effect. In fact, I worked harder than all of the apostles, though it was not I, but the grace of God [His unmerited favor and blessing which was] with me (1 Corinthians 15:10 AMP).

BUT BY THE [REMARKABLE] GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM… not by my qualifications… not by my strength… not by who I know… but I am what I am because of the remarkable grace of God… And with great ability and power the apostles were continuously testifying to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and GREAT GRACE [God’s remarkable lovingkindness and favor and goodwill] rested richly upon them all (Acts 4:33 AMP).

Beloved, are you in a position where you’ve really started to appreciate the grace of God over your life because it is one thing that you would definitely need to survive the times that we are in and to finish the race.

…Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “You know I love You.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. Jesus repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “You know I love You.” “Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. A third time He asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, You know everything. You know that I love You.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep (John 21:15-17 NLT).

Beloved, reading Simon Peter’s story, it’s amazing how the Lord can pick you up regardless of how low you sink and say “You know what… it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past… It doesn’t matter that you denied me 3 times. All that’s in the past…I STILL WANT TO USE YOU.

Jesus had previously told Peter… you have no idea how much the devil wants to destroy you…But I have prayed for you, Simon that your faith may not fail. AND WHEN YOU HAVE TURNED BACK, STRENGTHEN YOUR BROTHERS (Luke 22:32 NIV) but Peter thought nay…I’m the man…not me…I’m ready to die with You.

So, it’s no surprise that when it happened, Peter decided in his heart…I’ve blown it… I’ve denied Jesus… It’s all over. “I’m going back to fishing” he said and the others agreed to join him. But just like before, they caught nothing all night until Jesus came to their rescue. Then it was a big catch (John 21:3-6).

“SIMON DO YOU LOVE ME?” Jesus asked him 3 times. “Yeeeeeessssssssss”, Peter said…“Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.

Beloved, Peter got restored and it marked the beginning of his ministry and on the day of Pentecost,
Peter seized his moment. He stepped forward and started preaching to the crowd… Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”…Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all (Acts 2:37-41 NLT).

3,000 CONVERTS IN ONE DAY… Well, that’s what happens when the Lord wants to show you that you haven’t completely blown it.

I’ve always found it interesting that Jesus didn’t tell Peter that the devil would not succeed. He didn’t say I’ll bind the devil on your behalf. Instead, He said… I have prayed for your faith… AND WHEN YOU HAVE TURNED BACK… meaning when you’ve been restored… STRENGTHEN YOUR BROTHERS…

Beloved, this means that Jesus knew how things were going to end so I pray that you allow everything that has gone before stay in the past and you grab hold of the chance Jesus has laid before you and, just like Peter received restoration and new release of power and was able to do mighty things for the Lord, you too are able to operate in a higher dimension.

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! DO YOU NOT SEE IT?… (Isaiah 43:19 NLT).

29. November 2016 · Comments Off on THE GRACE TO GO THROUGH WHAT OTHERS CAN’T · Categories: God's Plan, Grace, Jesus Christ, Suffering, Trusting God, Victory

The furnace was so hot and the king’s command carried out so quickly, without any precautions, that the soldiers who took Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego up to the furnace were themselves killed by the heat of the raging fire. And the three Jews, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, tied and bound, fell into the furnace of blazing fire (Daniel 3:22-23 Voice).

Beloved, last week, I shared a bit of my experience this year with someone who asked how I was doing and after listening to me they said “and you’re still smiling”. Well, I smiled back and repeated what he said… “I’m still smiling” but it made me think about the grace that God gives to us to go through some things that would literally kill others. I hear some people’s story and all I can do is thank God that I didn’t have to go through half of what they’ve been through.

Our feature text gives us a perfect picture of what I’m talking about. The soldiers who took Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego up to the very hot furnace couldn’t handle just the heat from the raging fire that they were thrown into. THEY WERE KILLED.

Beloved, if some people went through a quarter of the things you’ve been through, they won’t be here today but you are still standing and are in your right mind to the amazement of the likes of Nebuchadnezzar who are watching you.

We are told that… Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?” “Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied. “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!” (Daniel 3:24-25 NLT)

They were walking around in the fire unharmed. The Voice translation says… They don’t appear to be hurt at all… The officers, prefects, governors, and king’s advisors moved closer to see what had happened to these men. They, too, could hardly believe their eyes. The fire had done nothing to harm these men. Their hair was not singed. Their clothes were not scorched. They didn’t have the faintest smell of smoke on them (Daniel 3:25, 27 Voice).

What a testimony! Jesus kept them from harm and the greatest testimony was that they all got to see the God that they served and couldn’t help but praise Him. King Nebuchadnezzar said… Praise is certainly due the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego today. He sent His heavenly representative and rescued His servants who put their trust in Him… (Daniel 3:28 Voice).

Beloved, the Lord will not allow you go through more than you can handle. He would always offer a way out (1 Corinthians 10:13). I remember clearly the Lord telling me at the beginning of this year that there’s a grace over me for what I was about to go through. Just like He told Apostle Paul… My grace is all you need… (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT)

Beloved, has the Lord seen you through what would kill others? If so, why not thank Him.

29. August 2016 · Comments Off on HOW DOES JESUS HELP CARRY OUR BURDEN? · Categories: God's Plan, Grace, Jesus Christ, Joy, Peace, Relationship

Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30 VOICE).

Beloved, the Bible is full of illustrations and it uses a lot of analogues and in our feature text, Jesus says… Put My yoke upon your shoulders. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a yoke is “a bar or frame that is attached to the heads or necks of two work animals (such as oxen) so that they can pull a plow or heavy load” and I found that one of the best ways to understand some of the Bible illustrations is to look for images on the web. So, for example, if you do a search for ‘Put My yoke upon your shoulders’, you would find images of two oxen tied together plowing a field, and from the image, one is able to see that the combined strength of the two animals is able to accomplish what one oxen, or two separate animals can’t. It also gives a picture of the two animals going in the same direction which talks about the unity that is needed in order to accomplish something.

So Jesus is offering you His yoke and I like how the message translation puts this text… The Message Translation says… “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

I found that for some reason, we have a way of complicating our lives. Jesus’ message is about resting in Him. Finding joy in Him. Being free from worry and anxiety. Receiving the kind of peace that the world cannot give. Living a life free of offence and bitterness. A life of Humility etc. So, why is it that many are far from His realities?

Beloved, instead of fighting everyone around you, how about… When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him (Proverbs 16:7 NKJV).

When you focus on Jesus, then you will see things with his eyes. That’s where you will find rest. When you do what He did and tells you to do, that’s Him helping you carry your burden because He releases an unexplainable grace to you. He says learn from me… [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith… (Hebrews 12:2 AMP).

Beloved, the Lord’s word for you is “My yoke is easy, and My burden is light”. In what ways do you think you can carry His yoke this week?

12. August 2016 · Comments Off on THE WAY UP COULD BE DOWN FIRST · Categories: God's Plan, Grace, Humility, Jesus Christ, Trusting God

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, He humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated Him… ‎(Philippians 2:5-9 NLT)‎

Beloved, after serving as a leader for over a decade, recently, I found myself ‎taking the first beginners class under a new leader who’s more concerned about your foundation than your position. I remember someone asking me who invited me to this church ‎and my response was “God” after asking Him “where’s the God of the Bible?

I told Him I was willing to strip myself of everything I’ve learnt so far to go after the God of the Bible. He then directed me to a particular Apostle whom I kept seeing in a dream even before I ever set eyes on him. At first, I kept running away from him even in the dream because I now know I was dealing with offence. However, when I saw him again in my dream, we were writing an exam together and to my surprise, he finished the exams and drove pass me and then when I eventually caught up with Him, he started putting me through the exam questions. That’s how I knew the Lord wanted me to learn from him. But beginners class though????

When he announced it, I was like “Lord? Really?” I looked around at all the other beginners, most of them teenagers and young adults; some probably the same age as the youths I already mentor, and again, I was like “Lord, really?” However, our feature text was immediately impressed in my spirit. If Jesus could humble Himself like that, who am I? ‎

The reason Jesus humbled Himself was so He could learn and understand our human culture. Hence the reason we can say… we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses… (Hebrews 4:15 NKJV)

I told my daughter how I was really determined not to allow any ego get in the way of sitting at the feet of someone who had what I needed and she said “that’s so humble of you”. However, I said “have you not heard that… God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6 NKJV)‎‎?” Imagine God resisting you? You can’t go anywhere.

Beloved, there are times when the way up is down. You may have to go through a humbling process where you first have to admit that I don’t know as much as I ought to know and that this person or position has what my next level needs and so I’m prepared to submit myself to the process and after the first class, I thought to myself “this is like free university. ‎This isn’t just any ordinary beginners class.”

Beloved, Scripture says…. you must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had… Do you need to humble yourself?
