Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses because of his Cushite wife, for he had married a Cushite. “Has the Lord spoken only through Moses?” they asked. “Hasn’t he also spoken through us?” And the Lord heard this. (Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.) At once the Lord said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, “Come out to the tent of meeting, all three of you.” So the three of them went out (Numbers 12:1-4).

Beloved, we sometimes think it is by power or by our might that we win some battles but in our feature text, despite Moses’ position and all his wonderful achievements, it was his humility that spoke for him. Miriam and Aaron took it upon themselves to hate on Moses but in his absence, his humility spoke… And the LORD said to them, “Now listen to what I say: “If there were prophets among you, I, the LORD, would reveal myself in visions. I would speak to them in dreams. But not with my servant Moses. Of my entire house, he is the one I trust. I speak to him face to face, clearly, and not in riddles! He sees the LORD as He is. So why were you not afraid to criticize my servant Moses?” The Lord was very angry with them, and He departed. As the cloud moved from above the Tabernacle, there stood Miriam, her skin as white as snow from leprosy… (Numbers 12:6-10 NLT)

“How dare you talk about my boy like that” was what the Lord was basically saying here.

Beloved, do you know that Mariam was Moses’ sister and Aaron his assistant pastor?

Being the person that Moses was, he even tried to plead Mariam’s case but the Lord must have said NO WAY… there are people I don’t joke with. The Lord said… keep her outside the camp for seven days, and after that she may be accepted back.” So Miriam was kept outside the camp for seven days… (Numbers 12:14-15 NLT)

Beloved, Miriam was publicly humiliated. Unfortunately, the thing you said in secret is now in the open. Everyone passing by would want to know what you did to warrant such embarrassment. Imagine people walking by and when they ask… What did you do Miriam? What do you think she would say?

Beloved, Humility is a great weapon to fight against your enemies. When you are humble, God will speak on your behalf. Why not let the Lord do the speaking and fighting for you?

Remember, the Bible says… You rescue the humble, but Your eyes watch the proud and humiliate them (2 Samuel 22:28 NLT).

24. May 2017 · Comments Off on BEING SECURE IN THE PERSON GOD CALLED YOU TO BE · Categories: God's Plan, Humility, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Spiritual Growth

JESUS KNEW THAT THE FATHER HAD GIVEN HIM AUTHORITY OVER EVERYTHING and that He had come from God and would return to God. SO HE GOT UP FROM THE TABLE, TOOK OFF HIS ROBE, WRAPPED A TOWEL AROUND HIS WAIST, AND POURED WATER INTO A BASIN. THEN HE BEGAN TO WASH THE DISCIPLES’ FEET, drying them with the towel he had around him (John 13:3‭-‬5 NLT).

Beloved, reading our feature text, the first thing that came to my mind was the fact that this is what happens when you are secure in the person God has called you to be – be it a husband, leader, CEO, whatever. You don’t have to Lord is over people. You don’t have to boss people around so your voice is heard and you don’t have to tear people down to make you feel important. Rather, it is people that would recognise what the Lord has placed in you.

Jesus knew that the Father had given Him authority over everything and so He also knew that bending down to wash His disciple’s feet did not make Him less the person that He was and like someone said, leadership is proven by its fruits and not necessarily by you just saying you are a leader. They then went on to say one of the greatest qualities of leadership is humility.

Beloved, Jesus went on to say to His disciples… And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them (John 13:14‭-‬17 NLT)

Beloved, Jesus humbled Himself and we are told… 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).

Because of His humility, He got elevated and so you too are to… dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor (1 Peter 5:5-6 NLT).

SELAH!

23. April 2017 · Comments Off on FINDING OUT WHAT’S ON TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN? · Categories: Change, Glory, God's Plan, Humility, Jesus Christ, Trusting God

…“Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.” (Revelation 4:1 NLT)

Beloved, there was a time Jesus told His disciples… Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NIV)

Jesus told them that it only took ‘small faith’ to move the mountain but my question is; what if you’ve got faith and the mountain still remains where it is? What if you’ve joined your faith with others and it has become massive faith and the mountains still says there’s no way I’m moving from this position? What if Jesus doesn’t want you to remove the mountain because there’s something He wants you to see on top of the mountain? Remember The Transfiguration… Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, James and John, AND LED THEM UP A HIGH MOUNTAIN TO BE ALONE. As the men watched, JESUS’ APPEARANCE WAS TRANSFORMED so that His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as light (Matthew 17:1-2 NLT).

Jesus led them up the mountain and there He was TRANSFORMED and they saw His glory (Luke 9:32). Also, on top of that mountain, once again, the Lord confirmed who Jesus was… a voice from the cloud said, “This is My dearly loved Son, who brings Me great joy. Listen to Him.” (Matthew 17:5 NLT)

Could this be why Jesus wants you to climb that mountain? Is there transformation taking place there? Does God want you to see His glory? Is God speaking and confirming things on top of the mountain? You will also find out that while Jesus was on earth, the top of the mountain was His favourite spot for prayer; a place where He connected with God… Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and He prayed to God all night (Luke 6:12 NLT).

Beloved, are you facing a mountain that refuses to shift? Some mountains we face have their uses. Could there be something up there the Lord wants you to see? And it’s not like you would remain there forever. What I like is that it was Jesus that led them up the mountain and you will also find that they all came back down from the mountain after their experience (Matthew 17:9). You too are no exception. Jesus is with you. Ask Him for the direction you need. Ask Him to hold your hand and trust that you will definitely come back down from that mountain after seeing what the Lord wants you to see.

18. April 2017 · Comments Off on STOP LOOKING DOWN AT OTHERS · Categories: God's Plan, Humility, Jesus Christ

To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ (Luke 18:9-13 NIV)

Beloved, our feature text was written about the self-righteousness of the Pharisee many thousands of years ago but it still applies to many of us today. If you don’t believe me, what’s your attitude when certain people walk pass you in church? Maybe you heard something about them during the week and immediately they step into church, you look at your spouse or your friend and then you smile at each other and it’s even worse with the technology that we have today. You start to send WhatsUp or text messages under the pretense that you are reading your Bible or taking down notes that goes something like… Can you imagine that he or she showed up in church today after everything they’ve done or look at how they are walking or look at how they are dressed?

However, while you are there sending messages back and forth, this person could be on their knees pouring out their souls before the Lord… God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Who do you think benefited more from that service? Jesus said… “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Luke 18:9-14 NIV)

I love King David, the man after God’s own heart. He is the one that you would find in the corner, at a distance praying quietly, saying… Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24 AMPC).

That’s when the Lord starts to highlight the gossiping, the malicious behavior, the jealousy, the pride etc. And that is when we would realise that it is by His mercy that we are all able to stand before His presence.

Beloved, is looking down at others preventing you from looking down within? The Lord loves when we humbly come before His presence. How have you come before Him today?

03. April 2017 · Comments Off on LEARNING TO BE HUMBLE · Categories: Change, God's Plan, Humility, Jesus Christ, Spiritual Growth

HE HUMBLED YOU, CAUSING YOU TO HUNGER and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that MAN DOES NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord (Deuteronomy 8:3 NIV).

HE HUMBLED YOU, CAUSING YOU TO HUNGER…

Beloved, you know the story of the Israelites when they wandered in the wilderness. They got to point where they were obviously hungry and that’s why they cried out for food. To them it was a normal desire but according to our feature text, God was behind it… He CAUSED THEM TO HUNGER…

Ever found yourself asking the Lord… but You were the One that said this is what is going to happen? But You said… or didn’t I hear You right? Maybe it was my imagination. If you’ve ever felt like that then you are not alone. I’ve been left in such confused state. Was it a dream? Was it my mind? How come its not coming to pass like You said? But these words jumped out at me like never before… HE HUMBLED YOU, CAUSING YOU TO HUNGER…

He put the desire in your heart but He HUMBLED YOU in the process of waiting for it to be fulfilled. He must be saying humility, patience, obedience etc. is what you need first. For someone to humble you means to make you feel less important or proud… Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down… and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God… You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth… (Deuteronomy 8:12-18 NIV).

Beloved, everyone that has had to really wait on the Lord’s promise would be able to testify that they learnt humility, patience, obedience and loads more first. Personally, I can write a book on it and like a famous preacher put it, they are… THE THINGS YOU LEARN ALONG THE WAY.

Looking up some definitions of Humility, for someone to humble you means to cut one’s ego down to size. It means that a person may have accomplished a lot but doesn’t feel it is necessary to advertise or brag about it… it’s not by my power.

HE HUMBLED YOU, CAUSING YOU TO HUNGER … But God is not a liar. He said every word … that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11 AMP).

Beloved, instead of the frustration, why not learn the lessons? It would happen in due time.

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?

17. February 2017 · Comments Off on IMITATE HIS HUMILITY · Categories: Holy Spirit, Humility, Jesus Christ

In your relationships with one another, HAVE THE SAME MINDSET AS CHRIST JESUS: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:5-8 NIV)

Beloved, there are quite a number of things Jesus let us see which we must imitate. Here we read that He humbled Himself! That’s a deliberate act and we know that… humility comes before honor (Proverbs 15:33). It was after Jesus humbled Himself that …God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name (Philippians 2:9 NIV).

Whether we like to admit it or not, many of us struggle with pride. We may try to display humility on the outside but pride takes the centre stage of our hearts. We tend to show humility to those we think matter but when it comes to others, it’s another story. But Jesus wasn’t like that. He stepped down from His throne… and the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us (John 1:14 AMPC). Why? Well, apart from to die for our sins, He came to show us how to become like Him. That’s why we are told that… we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—YET HE DID NOT SIN (Hebrews 4:15 NIV).

YET HE DID NOT SIN…

Beloved, we have all sinned and fallen short but that’s why He came down to save us and we agree… it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus TO DO GOOD WORKS, which God prepared in advance FOR US TO DO (Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV).

The end result is TO DO GOOD WORKS… and He has shown us how to do it so. dear friends… you can overlook an insult, you can get rid of pride… you can have self-control… We have seen Him do it so… Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16 NIV).

Remember… He gives us more and more grace [through the power of the Holy Spirit to defy sin and live an obedient life that reflects both our faith and our gratitude for our salvation]. Therefore, it says, “God is opposed to the proud and haughty, but [continually] gives [the gift of] grace to the humble…” (James 4:6 AMP)

A man’s pride and sense of self-importance will bring him down, but he who has a humble spirit will obtain honor (Proverbs 29:23 AMP).

Beloved, I’ve been reading about Joseph who was popularly known as daddy’s favourite. He got a special coat for it. That’s enough to get you into a lot of trouble with your siblings but then you have the nerves to tell daddy the wrong things we are doing (Genesis 37:2).

We are told that… His brothers hated Joseph because their father loved him more than the rest of them. They couldn’t say a kind word to him (Genesis 37: 4 NLT). This tells me that there must have been constant quarrelling and fighting amongst them; “Get out of here you this daddy’s boy. Let’s make sure nobody talks or plays with Joseph today” and Joseph would say “Daddy, do you know what Reuben and Judah did today?”

So, can you imagine how Joseph must have felt when he dreamt. He probably couldn’t wait to wake up from his sleep. Can you imagine how he must have expressed the dream? …“Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.” And his brothers said to him, “SHALL YOU INDEED REIGN OVER US? Or SHALL YOU INDEED HAVE DOMINION OVER US?” SO THEY HATED HIM EVEN MORE FOR HIS DREAMS AND FOR HIS WORDS (Genesis 37:6-8 NKJV).

You know Joseph could also interpret so he must have interpreted the dream and who knows how he did it because the message translation says – they hated him more than ever because of his dreams and THE WAY HE TALKED.

But it didn’t stop there. Let me rub it in some more… Then HE DREAMED STILL ANOTHER DREAM AND TOLD IT TO HIS BROTHERS, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.” So he told it to his father and his brothers; AND HIS FATHER REBUKED HIM and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? SHALL YOUR MOTHER AND I AND YOUR BROTHERS INDEED COME TO BOW DOWN TO THE EARTH BEFORE YOU?” (Genesis 37:9-10 NKJV)

Beloved, this time his father rebuked him. But why? Could it be how he said it?

What am I trying to say here? God gives gifts to accomplish His purpose but we sometimes make it about ourselves. Perhaps, Joseph had a boastful attitude that fuelled his brother’s jealousy. However, he soon learnt the hard way. They sold him into slavery and after several years of severe hardship, he was humbled. He learnt an important lesson; our gifts and talents come from God and it’s for His purpose and not for us to gain grounds or settle scores with people. He later gave God the credit when he was brought before Pharaoh… “It is beyond my power to do this,” Joseph replied. “But God can tell you what it means and set you at ease.” (Genesis 41:16 NLT)

Beloved, IS IT ALL ABOUT YOU or do you acknowledge that it’s beyond your power?

22. January 2017 · Comments Off on STILL A PASTOR IN PRISON · Categories: Contentment, God's Plan, Humility, Jesus Christ, Patience, Relationship, Vision

While they were in prison, Pharaoh’s cup-bearer and baker each had a dream one night, and each dream had its own meaning. When Joseph saw them the next morning, HE NOTICED THAT THEY BOTH LOOKED UPSET. “WHY DO YOU LOOK SO WORRIED TODAY?” he asked them (Genesis 40: 5-7 NLT)

Beloved, in a world where everyone wants a platform, many do not consider themselves as anything until given a platform and a microphone but our feature text introduces us to a man‎ who was functioning in his calling regardless of where he was. A pastor is one who cares for the needs of his sheep and this was what Joseph did… WHY DO YOU LOOK SO WORRIED TODAY, he asked.

In this story, we are told that… the Lord was with Joseph in the prison and showed him His faithful love. And the Lord made Joseph a favorite with the prison warden. Before long, the warden put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and over everything that happened in the prison. The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything. The Lord was with him and caused everything he did to succeed (Genesis 39:21-23 NLT)‎.

Beloved, before now, with the Lord’s hand on him, Joseph was serving successfully in Potiphar’s house (Genesis 39:2) until he was set up and found himself in prison but Joseph knew that Prison or Potiphar’s house, I am still who I am.‎

I remember reading a story of a pastor of a church who also owned a school where he taught‎. However, the thing was that his church congregation was quite small in comparison to the people that attended his school. So, someone then asked him how it feel to be successful at one and not at the other. “What do you mean?”, he asked. “Who told you I am not successful as a pastor? “The Lord called me to be a pastor of a church. He never once told me to how many people”. Beloved, that was his reply.

Beloved, Jesus said… “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own? (Luke 16:10-12 NLT). Joseph was successful wherever he was and when the Lord saw he was faithful with the few, He then promoted him.

Beloved, Apostle Paul told Timothy… Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching (2 Timothy 4:2 NLT). ‎What this means is that regardless of the situation, go to work. Wherever you perceive a need, you must try to meet that need. You don’t necessarily need a big platform. At any point in time, people in your sphere of influence are your congregation… Your family… your friends… your neighbours… your students… your work colleagues… etc.

This principle can be applied to whatever you do so go to work.

And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.” If you ENDURE CHASTENING, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons (Hebrews 12:5-8 NKJV).

Beloved, if you are like me, then chastisement isn’t a word you like hearing but that’s because many of us have memories that could be classified as abusive. I remember having a primary school teacher who would flog you depending on your test scores. So, for example, if you scored 6 out of 10 then he gave you 4 strokes of his cane. If you scored 7 out of 10, he gave you 3 strokes. The only way you escaped his chastisement was if you had a perfect score of 10 out of 10. Now, he was both my class teacher and after school (lesson) teacher so you can imagine the amount of flogging I received. However, that doesn’t mean I was dumb though (LOL).

Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that we usually think God’s chastening is the kind of abusive chastening that many of us grew up with. However, when we look at the Greek word ‘paideia’, it means instruction that trains someone to reach full development (maturity). It involves the whole training and education of children which relates to the cultivation of mind, morals and virtues and is a means that God uses to move us from babes to mature sons.

Beloved, the Lord’s chastening isn’t punishment. Rather, it’s about educating, training, nurturing, correcting etc. and a sure sign that the He’s working in your life. Our feature text talks about enduring chastening. This isn’t a bad thing. What we need is to correct our perception. We are told that if we endure correction, God treats us as sons but not just sons, mature sons (Huios) that the world is earnestly waiting for to manifest (Romans 8:19) and not just babes or teenagers so we shouldn’t despise it or be discouraged by it.

A few days ago, I was telling a young lady about this maturity level of sonship that God wants to get us to and so if He’s taking us through a process where He’s teaching us to love or be humble like Christ, then we ought to embrace it.

I was listening to someone say God’s chastening brings about new revelation in our lives and our attitude should be ‘thank You Lord, my eyes are now open and I can see what you are doing in my life. I accept and embrace it and as you do so, you quickly move on to a higher level; a better place than you’ve ever been. They went on to say despising God’s chastening is a soul reaction while endurance is a work of the spirit.

Hmmm… Beloved, are you allowing the Lord treat you as an illegitimate son?
