Then one of them, upon seeing that he was cured, turned back, recognizing and thanking and praising God with a loud voice; and he fell prostrate at Jesus’ feet, thanking Him [over and over]. And he was a Samaritan (Luke 17:15-16 AMPC).

“Give thanks with a grateful heart… Give thanks to the Holy One… Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son”.

Beloved, it was Don Moen who released this gospel song that sets the tone of how we are to approach God always. A grateful heart is what the Lord is asking of you today. Have you turned back, recognized, thanked and praised the Lord‎ for what He’s done in your life so far or are you like the other 9 lepers ‎that kept going? Jesus asked, “Were not ten healed? Where are the nine? Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this OUTSIDER?” (Luke 17:17-18 MSG)

Beloved… OUTSIDERS take over when we become unfruitful because we’ve become too familiar with a thing that we no longer value it’s worth. As a result, it no longer produces anything for us and we no longer reap the benefits.

A typical ‎example is the case of Jesus and the people He grew up with… Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary?… Are they not all with us?… But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” NOW HE DID NOT DO MANY MIGHTY WORKS THERE BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIEF (Mathew 13.55-58 NKJV).

This is about taking one for granted and‎ many of us take the Lord for granted because we’ve become so used to Him and what He does for us daily (Psalm 68:19).

Beloved, we must cultivate the habit of being grateful for everything the Lord has done for us; both the little and big things. It is because of His mercies we are not consumed (Lamentations 3:22).

David said… I bless God every chance I get my lungs expand with His praise… GOD MET ME MORE THAN HALFWAY, He freed me from my anxious fears (Psalm 34:1, 4 MSG)‎.

Beloved, is there anything you haven’t thanked God or given Him the glory for?

Praise the Lord, O my soul! Do not forget all His kind deeds! He is the one who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases, who delivers your life from the Pit, who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion, who satisfies your life with good things, so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s (Psalm 103: 2-5 NET)‎.

Beloved, Thanksgiving ‎is a key the Lord’s heart… Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name! (Psalm 100:4 AMP)

When the Lord sees how you appreciate everything He’s doing in your life, you are in… You’ve got access.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

31. July 2017 · Comments Off on COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS · Categories: Blessing, Jesus Christ, Praise, Thanks giving

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits (Psalm 103:1-2 AMPC).

Beloved, I’m reminded of a time during one of our Bible studies when all I did was ask everyone in turns how their week had been so far and that kicked off an awesome time of thanksgiving that saw some rolling on the floor worshipping the Lord. It was a real time of reflecting on how faithful the Lord has been and it wasn’t about the obvious things that we usually thank God for. I even had to repent and ask for forgiveness.

A song writer once wrote: ‘Count your blessings and name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done’.

Beloved, there are times you think the Lord has bypassed you. At those times, there is indeed a tendency to say… “Lord, You haven’t come through for me!” However, it isn’t until you actually stop and start to count one by one all that He has been doing, then like the song writer said, it surprises you what the Lord has done. The reason for this is because most times, we do not recognise God’s blessings. We tend to want it one way but God gives it to us in another way and then we become like the Israelites in the wilderness when they cried out for food. The Lord rained down bread from heaven but… When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “WHAT IS IT?” FOR THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT IT WAS. Moses said to them, “It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat (Exodus 16:15 NIV).

Really? But this looks nothing like what I was expecting? Like the Israelites, are you in a position where you are saying “WHAT IS IT?” How has the Lord blessed me? Do you need to be told how?

Beloved, realise what He saved you from and wipe your tears. King David said… O my soul, bless God. From head to toe, I’ll bless His holy name! O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing! (MSG)

The fact that you are still around today is a reason to bless the Lord. And here are some more reasons:

He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in His presence (Psalm 103:3-5 MSG).

Beloved, in order to position yourself to praise hard, you need to count your blessings and name them one by one and… BLESS THE LORD…DO NOT FORGET HIS BENEFITS…

Why not enter this new week with this kind of attitude and keep it up for the rest of the week?

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

Now after this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant, AND FOR FIVE MONTHS SHE SECLUDED HERSELF COMPLETELY, SAYING, “This is how the Lord has dealt with me in the days when He looked with favor on me, to take away my disgrace among men.” (Luke 1:24-25 AMP)

AND FOR FIVE MONTHS SHE SECLUDED HERSELF COMPLETELY, SAYING…

Beloved, did you read that clearly? Elizabeth received a miracle from the Lord that she never thought was possible and it left her in awe for five good months. This is the kind of miracle that you can’t tell anybody for fear that they would wake you up from a dream. The Message translation says… It wasn’t long before his wife, Elizabeth, conceived. She went off by herself for five months, relishing her pregnancy. “So, this is how God acts to remedy my unfortunate condition!” she said.

This encouraged me so good because as I read further, I saw that it was the same miracle the angel of the Lord used to encourage Mary when it was her own turn to expect a miracle that would also leave her in awe.

After telling Mary the ridiculous word that she would be impregnated by the Holy Spirit and would have a child, he said… listen, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month. FOR WITH GOD NOTHING [IS OR EVER] SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.” Then Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel left her (Luke 1:36-37 AMP).

FOR WITH GOD NOTHING [IS OR EVER] SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE…

Beloved, old Elizabeth became pregnant, AND FOR FIVE MONTHS SHE SECLUDED HERSELF COMPLETELY, SAYING, “This is how the Lord has dealt with me in the days when He looked with favor on me, to take away my disgrace among men. I read this and started counting at the tip of my fingers; we are five months away from the end of this year… August, September, October, November, and December. So, I started to pray that the Lord should give us a miracle in this month that would cause us to ponder for the rest of the year.

Beloved, do you believe this? Mary said… May it be done to me according to your word… It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past. The word of God says… “Do not remember the former things, or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43:18-19 AMP).

It didn’t matter that Elizabeth and her husband had served faithfully in the past without anything to show for it. In one moment, the Lord did it. He looked with favor on them and took away their disgrace. You are next in line. May it be done to you according to His word.

Beloved, the Bible says that… in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV) and so, while you’re still waiting on the Lord for that big thing to happen, like this Samaritan in our feature text, have you… turned back, recognized, thanked and praised the Lord‎ for what He’s done so far in your life even in this year or are you like the other 9 lepers ‎that kept going? Jesus said, “Were not ten healed? Where are the nine? Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this OUTSIDER?” (Luke 17:17-18 MSG)

This OUTSIDER… There’s this term called ‘barren familiarity’ where you become unfruitful because you’ve become too familiar with a thing that you no longer value it’s worth. As a result, it no longer produces anything for you and you no longer reap its benefits.

A typical ‎example is the case of Jesus and the people He grew up with… Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary?… Are they not all with us?… But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” NOW HE DID NOT DO MANY MIGHTY WORKS THERE BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIEF (Mathew 13.55-58 NKJV).

This is about taking one for granted and‎ many of us take the Lord for granted because we’ve become so used to Him and what He does for us daily (Psalm 68:19) that’s why outsiders come in and get blessed faster than those of us that have been insiders for years.‎

Beloved, we need to cultivate the habit of being grateful for everything the Lord has done for us; both the little and big things. It is because of His mercies we are not consumed (Lamentations 3:22).

King David said… I bless God every chance I get my lungs expand with His praise… God met me more than halfway, He freed me from my anxious fears (Psalm 34:1, 4 MSG)‎.

Beloved, Look back at the past few weeks, months or years. Is there anything you haven’t thanked God for or given Him the glory?

Praise the Lord, O my soul! Do not forget all his kind deeds! He is the one who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases, who delivers your life from the Pit, who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion, who satisfies your life with good things, so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s(Psalm 103: 2-5 NET)‎.

26. March 2017 · Comments Off on THE PREVAILING MOTHER · Categories: favor, God's Plan, Help, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Relationship, Restoration, Thanks giving

And Adam knew Eve as his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain; and she said, I have gotten and gained a man WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD. And [next] she gave birth to his brother Abel… (Genesis 4:1-2 AMPC).

Beloved, Happy mother’s day to all you wonderful mothers and mothers to be out there. I have great news for you… NOTHING CAN STOP YOU! I was just reflecting on all the agony Eve had to go through. From her very first appearance on the scene of this earth, the devil was after her. Yes, she fell. Yes her actions had consequences but no matter how she struggled… No matter what life brought her way, she PREVAILED. She had to go through hard labour but WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Because of the enmity between the offspring of satan and her offspring (Genesis 3:15), there was war in her household and even after she lost both sons, her story did not end there, she… again became pregnant, and she bore a son and called his name Seth. For God, she said, has appointed for me another child…(Genesis 4:25 AMPC)… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Beloved, since that time, women struggled with all sorts of issues. Barrenness was top on the list but when the world thought it was all over for Sarah, Rachael, Rebecca, Hannah, Elizabeth and the like, the Lord changed their stories… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… they PREVAILED…

And then the angel of the Lord appeared to one very special woman… And he came to her and said, Hail, O favored one [endued with grace]! The Lord is with you! Blessed (favored of God) are you before all other women!…And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace (free, spontaneous, absolute favor and loving-kindness) with God. And listen! You will become pregnant and will give birth to a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus (Luke 1:28-31 AMPC).

The enemy fought that Son… He was crucified. Mary probably thought she had lost Him forever but He resurrected… He ascended in to Heaven and… On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place…. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them (Acts 2:1,3 NLT). That was the Holy Spirit coming to dwell inside of them. Mary, the mother of Jesus was there (Acts 1:14). She felt her Son inside her once again… She was a favored one… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Beloved, such would be your case… you would keep on PREVAILING. On this special mother’s day, you blessed woman, favored of God, may you receive a special visitation from the Lord. May you receive gifts that you know… THIS CAN ONLY BE GOD.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! PEOPLE USED TO SAY SHE WAS BARREN, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. FOR NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD (Luke 1:36-37 NLT)

Beloved, I’ve found out that regardless of whatever happens, people are bound to talk about you. You can’t do anything about that but the good thing is that the good Lord hears every conversation… even the ones you don’t get to hear. In our feature text, the angel of the Lord visited Mary, the mother of Jesus to let her know of the part she had to play in God’s divine purpose to save humanity and then He told her about Elizabeth’s pregnancy in her old age.

He said… PEOPLE USED TO SAY SHE WAS BARREN… Yes, that was the gist in town for a very long time but one day the Lord stepped in… FOR NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD

When it was time for Elizabeth’s baby to be born, she gave birth to a son. And when her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had been very merciful to her, EVERYONE REJOICED WITH HER (Luke 1:57-58 NLT).

EVERYONE REJOICED WITH HER…This were probably the same people that called her barren but now, the topic of their discussion changed.

The scripture goes on to say… everyone who heard about it reflected on these events and asked, “WHAT WILL THIS CHILD TURN OUT TO BE?” For the hand of the Lord was surely upon him in a special way (Luke 1:66 NLT).

Beloved, like I said, people would not stop talking about your situation but please be patient and allow God to give them something to talk about…WHAT WILL THIS CHILD TURN OUT TO BE?

As for you, just keep doing what you are doing. Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God’s eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord’s commandments and regulations (Luke 1:6 NLT).

What’s more, Zechariah was a priest and when the angel of the Lord made this special visitation, he didn’t have to look for Zechariah in a different place out of frustration. Zechariah could have said… I’m tired of all this… I’m not going to church today… After all what am I getting for all my faithful service? NO! He was found serving God in the Temple carrying out his priestly duties and the angel of the Lord said to him… “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer (Luke 1:13 NLT).

Both husband and wife were old when the Lord answered their prayers but to God it was the right time.

So, beloved, let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint (Galatians 6:9 AMPC).

This is my pray for everyone waiting on the Lord for one thing or the other. Your story is bound to change. The Lord will give ALL YOUR OBSERVERS something worth talking about.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

11. September 2016 · Comments Off on HOW CONTENT ARE YOU? · Categories: Contentment, Jesus Christ, Thanks giving

…godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a sense of inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain (1 Timothy 6:6 AMPC).

Beloved, I remember once asking a lady to keep me in her prayers. However, she replied asking regarding what… “Ministry/ career or family? (Sorry asking more questions- I just don’t want to be religious and say; I’ll be praying)”. LOL… so I had to be specific and then I said… “You always sound very content which I admire so I don’t know what to pray for you. However, I would ask that your cup runs over”. Her reply was… “God’s been good to me on all sides… but of course more grace will not go amiss!”

Wow… I remember I was left thinking no wonder God’s been good to you on all sides. However, I couldn’t help but also think that perhaps, it’s not that everything is exactly perfect in her life but she’s probably learnt to be content and that in itself attracts the Lord’s blessings.

Beloved, most times, we tend to focus on what ‘should be’ rather than ‘what is’ and there are times God may have to show us that things could be worse. Like the saying goes; I used to complain that I had no shoes until I saw someone without any foot. Have you ever had to stop to apologise to God for your ingratitude when you see what others are going through? You are left thinking “what am I complaining about?”

Beloved, while we often tend to complain, let’s try and learn to be content. Paul said… I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want (Philippians 4:11-12 NIV). This is not to say you shouldn’t aim higher but it shouldn’t take over your life.

I once watched a play of two women approaching the throne of God. One was full of complaints.. Lord You haven’t done this and that. However, instead of giving her what she wanted, the Lord asked ‘perseverance’, ‘patience…’ to follow her home. On the other hand, even before the other lady approached His throne, God could hear her singing from afar. When she got to Him, the Lord asked what she wanted but she said… “Nothing! I’m still praising You for what You did last time”. The Lord was so impressed with her that He started dispatching blessings to follow her. She went away singing and dancing but by this time, the Lord’s feet was moving to her singing and when He couldn’t contain Himself anymore, He got up and said… In fact, wait for Me… I, myself would follow you.

Beloved, I remember someone saying that one of the basic differences between God and humans is that God gives, gives and forgives. But the human gets, gets, gets and forgets. So here’s a challenge; why not decide that this week you are going to try and look for ways to give, give and forgive?

31. December 2015 · Comments Off on THE WEAPON DID NOT PROSPER‏ · Categories: Choices, God's Plan, Hope, Jesus Christ, Pain, Suffering, Thanks giving

No weapon formed against you shall prosper… (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV).

“Many of us are nursing wounds from weapons that did not prosper”. When I heard these words recently, I couldn’t shake it off. What this means is that we didn’t get to experience anything near what the enemy intended for us but yet can’t get over whatever discomfort we had to face. However, if the Lord should really open our eyes to see what the enemy planned for us, we would be speechless. The truth is that the Lord diverted many things because He still has plans for our future and that’s something to be grateful about.

I’m thinking of Joseph… When Joseph’s brothers saw him coming… they made plans to kill him (Genesis 37:18 NLT). That was their plan but if God didn’t have His own plan for Joseph’s future, he would have been killed. Rather, they changed their mind and threw him into a pit (Genesis 37:21-24). That weapon did not proper. Can you imagine what would have happened if Joseph got stuck in that moment of his life, nursing wounds saying “I can’t move on because my brothers threw me into a bit and then sold me into slavery. Don’t you think the Lord would have said “common, Joseph, but for my intervention, you would have been dead”.

Beloved, think back over the last 12 months, are you nursing wounds from weapons that didn’t prosper? Don’t you think that if those weapons had really prospered, you won’t be alive today? But the fact that you’re reading this today means that the Lord stopped the enemy’s plans concerning you.

I personally know someone that the Lord miraculously intervened when they were about to be involved in a car accident. A few weeks later, this same person was almost molested but the molester immediately stopped and later apologised, admitting that they saw a bright light shine from her. Hmmm… a few weeks after that, this same person unknowingly found herself on the scene of a gang crime and as she stopped to help the victim, the gang members drove off. Little did she know that they were waiting for her somewhere and as she drove off, they started chasing her. She got to a point where she couldn’t escape anymore but when one of the guys came out of their car and pointed a gun at her face, he couldn’t shoot. He just walked away.

None of those weapons prospered but you can only imagine how such incidents can keep one traumatised but she has to realise that those weapons didn’t prosper and move on.

Beloved, I’m not sure what your year has been like but you have to decide to stop nursing wounds from weapons that did not prosper, let go and move on to what the Lord has for you.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT).

God bless you

30. October 2015 · Comments Off on THE LORD WILL PERFORM HIS WORD‏ CONCERNING YOU‏‏ · Categories: Faith, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Patience, Perseverance, Promise, Testimony, Thanks giving, Trusting God

Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:11-12 AMP).

Yesterday, using the case of the Shunammite woman, I wrote about not giving up and after posting on Facebook, as I was about logging off, I saw some pictures that someone posted 2 days ago with a message that said “Friends rejoice with me for the Lord has broken the yoke of barrenness in my life after 21 years”.‎

Hmmm… 21 years! She almost reached Abraham and Sarah’s record who waited for 25 years and we often say that was in Bible country but this one happened in our time. I read it and it brought me to tears and I knew the Lord was confirming my message for someone so I had to share in my Facebook group.

Now, I’ve never seen this woman before so I wanted to know who her husband was because being someone that my ex-husband left because I couldn’t have a child with him after 5 years, I was curious to see the kind of man that would wait with a woman for 21 years. So, instead of logging off like I was supposed to, I started searching through her pictures (LOL, you would be surprised at some of the things I get up to sometimes) ‎and I know that you aren’t meant to judge based on what you see on Facebook alone but the pictures I saw showed a happy couple.

‎I couldn’t help but pray for him as I browsed through their pictures and to my amazement I actually found one picture posted on 25 December 2014 where his hands were wrapped around her and a man responded to the picture by saying “Thank you… for the endurance and perseverance, God will continue to bless you. Amen”.

Hmmm… I can only imagine that he never imagined that in less than a year’s time, they would be holding their own baby.

‘Endurance and perseverance’ are the key words. When the Lord makes a promise that for example… “None shall be barren in your land (Exodus 23:26)”or that “about this time next year you shall embrace a son (2 Kings 4:16)”, He doesn’t just say it for the fun of it. He doesn’t just sit back and relax either. The Lord told the Prophet Jeremiah…‎ I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it and thank God that we can rely on His faithfulness regardless of us… If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself (2 Timothy 2:13 AMP).

Halleluyah… “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 NKJV)

BE ENCOURAGED!

God bless you
