There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12 NKJV).

Beloved, I remember back in secondary school, I took an agriculture test. I didn’t really like agriculture so was very glad to find that the question was something I had revised for. The test was a breeze and I was so pleased with myself about what I had written.

It also happened to be just before midterm break so I went home so happy. However, I couldn’t wait to get back just so I could see my results. I was expecting to get above 80 percent! However, when I got my paper back, I failed miserably. What? It can’t be! I went straight to the teacher. Why? I honestly felt they had made a mistake until I was showed what I had done wrong. I didn’t follow the instructions correctly and I think I gave the right answers to the wrong questions. But the thing is that if they hadn’t pointed my mistake out, I wouldn’t have realised it and while I was on break, if anybody had told me I would come back to such results, I would have told them where to go.

The Bible tells us of Saul. God gave him specific instructions and he was so pleased with himself that he had carried it out that… he set up for himself a monument or trophy [of his victory]… (1 Samuel 15:12 AMPC).

And when Samuel found Saul, he was proud to say… Blessed are you of the Lord. I have performed what the Lord ordered (1 Samuel 15:13 AMP). The Message translation says… I ACCOMPLISHED GOD’S PLAN TO THE LETTER… Really? A-Z? Then what is all the bleating of sheep and goats and the lowing of cattle I hear?” Samuel demanded. (1 Samuel 15:14 NLT). And he had the nerve to argue. Samuel asked… Why haven’t you obeyed the Lord? Why did you rush for the plunder and do what was evil in the Lord’s sight?” “BUT I DID OBEY THE LORD,” SAUL INSISTED. “I CARRIED OUT THE MISSION HE GAVE ME… (1 Samuel 15:19-20 NLT).

Saul’s defense was that his… troops brought in the best of the sheep, goats, cattle, and plunder to sacrifice to the Lord your God in Gilgal (1 Samuel 15:21 NLT). They brought a sacrifice to the Lord and Saul was convinced he had done the right thing. However, our feature text says we could be decieved thinking we are there doing the right thing. That day Samuel told Saul… “The Lord has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today (1 Samuel 15:28).

Beloved, I can only wonder how many things we are doing wrong that seem right in our eyes. Jesus came to give sight to the blind and He gave us the Spirit of truth who guides us into all truth (John 16:13). Today I pray He opens our eyes to the things that displease God.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! (Isaiah 65:24 NLT)

Beloved, yesterday morning, there I was some thousand miles away from my home in the UK reading an article, along with some other books I brought with me. In it, a book titled ‘I dared to call Him Father’ by Bilquis Sheikh was mentioned where the article talked about how she first struggled to address God as Father after she converted to Christianity. The article went on to say “You can read the remainder of Bilquis’s testimony in the book I Dared
to Call Him Father”.

It looked like a valuable resource for the study I’m currently doing on ‘the perceptions of the Fatherhood of God’, so with such limited time at my disposal, “why on earth am I just coming across this book” was what I said to myself as I reached out for my laptop to see what the book looked like. Usually, I buy most of my books from Amazon UK and if I were at home, using my prime membership, I would immediately order it so I can get it the next day but I wasn’t at home. I was all the way in Africa and kindle just doesn’t do it for me.

However, the next thing I heard my friend say as I reached for my laptop blew my mind away. “Have you read the book titled “I dared to call Him Father?”

“Eh! Come again? What did you just say? Were you reading my mind?” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. “No, I haven’t but I have just read about it and was about to do a search for it online”, I said.

“Well, I have it here,” she said. “Really? Are you kidding me?”

Beloved, she wasn’t kidding. She was serious. She gave me the book and it wasn’t like she had to look for it. She just stretched her hand and brought it out of the bookshelf next to her. Wow! To say I was flabbergasted is an understatement. To say I was amazed is an understatement.

Our feature text was what immediately came to mind. Yesterday, I wrote about asking amiss but with this one, the Lord was showing me what happens when we align our will with His. I remember, January last year, the Lord said to me “Ruky, go and do what I’ve asked you to do – a very radical and tough journey of obedience that stripped me of everything I had and brought me to this place where I’m now doing this study that God wanted me to do and now He says… before you even ask, I will answer you.

Beloved …and this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us (1 John 5:14 NET). Everything you would ever need from God has been positioned on your path of obedience and He says when you take that path, before you even ask, I will answer. SELAH!

12. January 2017 · Comments Off on BECAUSE YOU OBEYED… · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Obedience, Promise, Restoration, Trusting God

“This is what the Lord says: Because you have obeyed Me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by My own name that I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies. And through your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed—all because you have obeyed Me.” (Genesis 22:16-18 NLT)

Beloved, has the enemy been lying to you? Many have obeyed the Lord and the devil may want you to believe that your sacrifice was for nothing but the Lord wants you to know that because you obeyed… I will certainly bless you… all because you have obeyed Me…

We see in our feature text that because of Abraham’s obedience, the Lord moved from just making him a promise to sealing it with His name. He told Abraham… I swear by My own name that I will certainly bless you…

Later, we are told that… Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in His own name, saying: “I will certainly bless you, and I will multiply your descendants beyond number.” Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised. Now when people take an oath, they call on someone greater than themselves to hold them to it. And without any question that oath is binding. God also bound Himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be PERFECTLY SURE THAT HE WOULD NEVER CHANGE HIS MIND. So God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie… (Hebrews 6:13-18 NLT)

Beloved, God has given both His promise and His oath so you can be PERFECTLY SURE THAT HE WOULD NEVER CHANGE HIS MIND. Don’t allow the enemy bombard your minds with thoughts like “you have missed your season” or that he has succeeded in stealing your harvest. Well, that’s a lie from the pit of hell. Remember… those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest (Psalm 126:5-6 NLT). That’s the word of the Lord.

Beloved, one last thing, the Lord told Abraham… because you have obeyed me… and the title of this message is… ‘because you obeyed’… so I can’t end this writeup without asking whether you obeyed.

During our prayer meeting on Monday, we were led to pray for the grace to be totally obedient to the Lord because He was showing us that He was waiting… to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled (2 Corinthians 10:6 NKJV). Abraham could have allowed his reasoning get in the way of his obedience so you may need to cast all… arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5 NKJV)

SELAH! Pause and calmly think of that…

31. December 2016 · Comments Off on LET HE WHO HAS EARS HEAR · Categories: God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Obedience

Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what He is saying… (Revelation 2:29 NLT).

Beloved, imagine how Abraham would have felt if he had gone back to God and said I’ve done what You’ve asked me to do; I’ve sacrificed my son, Isaac and the Lord turns around and says didn’t you hear when I said… Do not lay your hand on the lad or do anything to him? (Genesis 22:12) Really? When? That would have been disastrous.

Throughout the Bible, you would hear God say, “follow my instructions”. These are His instruction’s written in the Bible and things revealed to us through the Holy Spirit. So, if we don’t take time out to spend with Him and hear what He has to say, we may be unknowingly walking in disobedience or waiting in one place while He has said go.

Personally, I never want to stand at the bus stop waiting to catch a bus when the bus has already passed me by and has reached its destination. God gives instructions and many of us are not living according to His will for us because we don’t take the time to hear what He has to say. As a result, we struggle and the enemy keeps gaining an edge over us.

We can learn a lot from David. It’s easy to see why God testified concerning him: I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do (Acts 13:22). And he did… well apart from sleeping with someone else’s wife and killing him. But David was not presumptuous. Faced with the same situation twice, he sought the face of the Lord… The Philistines arrived and made a raid in the valley of Rephaim. So DAVID ASKED GOD, “SHOULD I go out to fight the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me? (1 Chronicles 14:9-10 NLT).”

The Lord said yes and David won that battle… But after a while the Philistines returned and raided the valley again. AND ONCE AGAIN DAVID ASKED GOD WHAT TO DO. “Do not attack them straight on,” God replied. “Instead, circle around behind and attack them near the poplar trees (1 Chronicles 14:13-14 NLT).

Beloved, notice that David didn’t say this is how God said I should do it the last time so I guess this is how He would want me to do it this time. Instead, he inquired of the Lord and the Lord gave him a different strategy. God doesn’t change but His methods change and we must always listen out for what our next move should be. Even Jesus said… “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does (John 5:19 NLT).

Beloved, as we approach the last few hours of the year 2016, let’s take out time to ask God to show us where we have ignorantly missed Him and like our feature text says… listen to the Spirit and understand what He is saying… and as we do so, I pray He directs or redirects out steps in line with His will.

02. December 2016 · Comments Off on FINISH STRONG · Categories: God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Obedience, Prayer, Trusting God, Victory

There was a long war between the house of Saul and the house of David; but David grew steadily stronger, while the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker [to the point of being powerless] (2 Samuel 3:1 AMP).

Beloved, we are in the last month of 2016 and as we were praying, the Lord placed our feature text in my heart. For many of us, this year has been a real battle. The enemy came full force to wear you out but to the glory of God, you are still standing. In our feature text, we are told that King David was in a long war against his enemy but it’s one thing to be in a battle and not come out victorious however, his testimony was that his enemy did not wear him out. He grew stronger and stronger while his enemy grew weaker and weaker.

To me, David represents many things; No doubt David was a man of war but he was also a worshipper. He knew how to praise and worship the Lord like non other. He was also very passionate about serving the Lord and doing the will of God. He wanted to please the Lord at all times and he didn’t grow weak because of his long battle with his enemies. His prayer life didn’t go weak. His worship didn’t go weak neither did his willingness to obey God. Rather, the fight made him stronger and stronger.

Beloved, no doubt, we’ve all been through some things this year, but if the Lord allowed it, it’s because He wants to strengthen you through the process. It’s because He wants you to experience the strength that comes from Christ. Apostle Paul said… Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time He said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 NLT).

Jesus knew what we were up against. He came in the flesh and experienced every battle that we were ever going to face, hence the reason why He said… But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:32 NLT). He also left us with the Holy Spirit who is our current help in times of need.

Beloved, the Lord is fighting for you pushing back the darkness and in the name of Jesus, the enemy is defeated. Endeavour to finish strong… having done all, stand (Ephesians 6:13).

Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:30-31 NLT).

04. November 2016 · Comments Off on WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THE MIRROR? · Categories: Change, God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Obedience, Spiritual Growth

Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like (James 1:22-24 MSG).

Beloved, I think I have shared this story before. As a child, I used to be a vain little girl. I would stand in front of the mirror and say mummy look… pre… pre (short for pretty… LOL). I started early and growing up, for a very long time could not walk pass a mirror without taking a quick peep just to see what I looked like and to make sure everything was still in place… just like when I left the house.

In our feature text, the Bible uses this analogy to describe what we do with God’s Word. Well, we love to go to church. In fact, some of us haven’t missed Sunday service this year. We listen to the sermon; attend Bible study; read our Bible daily and paste and like Bible verses on Facebook and it’s important that we take in as much word as we can but what’s even more important is that we do what it says. The effectiveness of all the word you’ve been listening to should show in your character and behaviour. We are meant to be becoming more like Christ… and all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [IN THE WORD OF GOD] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another… (2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP)

We are supposed to be on a journey of transformation. When we look in the mirror (the word of God) and we do what it says, we are meant to see a progressive change from looking like ourselves to looking like Jesus and like my little vain self, we should be able to say “Jesus” (not pre…). We also need to do regular spot checks to make sure everything is in place.

Beloved, what do you see when you look in the mirror? Jesus or you can’t remember? Hearing the Word of God should change you. On the day of Pentecost, Peter preached to the crowd and the words that he preached pierced their hearts and when he finished … those who were there listening asked Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers! Brothers! SO NOW WHAT DO WE DO?” (Acts 2:37 MSG). The word they heard brought about a desire to change and it is my desire that we desire this change because James went on to say… if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it (James 1:25 NLT).

22. October 2016 · Comments Off on ARE YOU HIDING WHAT YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN? · Categories: Action, Fear, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Obedience, Talents

“Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. AND I WAS AFRAID, AND WENT AND HID YOUR TALENT IN THE GROUND. Look, there you have what is yours’ (Matthew 25:24-25 NKJV).

Beloved, I think of this story and so many things come to mind. Was this servant just playing safe or was he suffering from insecurity? Was he held back by fear? What’s your own excuse for hiding what you’ve been given? We all have our excuses for not utilizing whatever the Lord has given to us and we think our excuses are valid but apparently, this was something the master did not take likely at all… “But the master replied, ‘YOU WICKED AND LAZY SERVANT! If you knew I harvested crops I didn’t plant and gathered crops I didn’t cultivate, WHY DIDN’T YOU DEPOSIT MY MONEY IN THE BANK? At least I could have gotten some interest on it’ (Matthew 25:26-27 NLT).

He called him WICKED AND LAZY… If it was fear that paralysed you, why did you not deposit what the Lord had given to you into someone else?

Beloved, this just makes me wonder whether this is one area of disobedience that people take likely but in actual fact the Lord is seriously frowning at. The master said… Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away (Matthew 25:28-29 NKJV).

Beloved, he went from one to zero because the Lord does not like unfruitfulness. You may think it’s unfair but I am also reminded of when Jesus cursed the Fig Tree… The next morning as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. He noticed a fig tree in full leaf a little way off, so he went over to see if he could find any figs. But there were only leaves because it was too early in the season for fruit. Then Jesus said to the tree, “May no one ever eat your fruit again!”… (Mark 11:12-14 NLT).

Hmmm… But it’s not the right season? Well, so why are you deceiving people with your full display of leaves? And then, Paul told Timothy… be ready in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2).

Beloved, what are you doing with what the Lord has placed inside of you? Fear should not stop you. Paul told Timothy… This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:6-7 NLT).

Are you going to be WICKED AND LAZY? Doesn’t sound nice at all. Does it?

17. September 2016 · Comments Off on DON’T GO BACK THERE · Categories: Change, Choices, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Obedience, Trusting God

Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him. So He TOOK THE BLIND MAN BY THE HAND AND LED HIM OUT OF THE TOWN. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly. Then He sent him away to his house, saying, “NEITHER GO INTO THE TOWN, nor tell anyone in the town.” (Mark 8:22-26 NKJV)

Beloved, our feature text tells us that before healing this blind man, Jesus took him out of the town and then after healing him, Jesus told him not to go back there. Could there be a reason for this? I believe that it’s because at times, our condition has everything to do with our environment and the people we surround ourselves with.

We must realise that Jesus had cursed Bethsaida. He said… “Woe to you, Chorazin! WOE TO YOU, BETHSAIDA! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you (Matthew 11:21-22 NKJV).

WOE TO YOU, BETHSAIDA! Hmmm…. Can you imagine someone planting and toiling on bad ground?

For some people, there are things you’ve been believing God for and are wondering why He hasn’t answered. After all, it’s not something that’s impossible for Him. Yes, nothing is impossible for God but there are times when He has to lead us out of certain places and situations so that we are properly positioned to receive what we’ve asked for. Jesus may have to walk us out of certain environments to give us the right perspective and even when we may not fully understand things, we just have to trust Him.

In the case of this blind man, Jesus took him out of his environment, and began to work on him and it’s important to note that it was a process that involved honesty and patience. Jesus had to be sure he could see properly before He let him loose again but then, He specifically told him don’t go into the town. The New Living Translation says “DON’T GO BACK INTO THE VILLAGE… while the Amplified says… Do not even enter the village….

Beloved, isn’t that a warning? And then, our feature text ends by Jesus saying… DON’T TELL ANYONE IN THE TOWN. The Voice translation says… don’t tell anybody in town what happened here…

That made me laugh because at times we just want to go back to certain places we’ve been brought out from to show off and say see I am able to see clearly now and even see through you but Jesus told this man… DON’T GO BACK THERE

Could He be talking to you too?

15. September 2016 · Comments Off on WHAT ARE YOU STILL HOLDING ON TO? · Categories: Blessing, Choices, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Obedience

The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I WILL MAKE YOU INTO a great nation. I will bless you and MAKE YOU FAMOUS, and you will be a blessing to others (Genesis 12:1-2 NLT).

Beloved, we all love to be blessed and we do well to claim Abraham’s blessings. In fact, there’s this popular song that says… Abrahams blessing are mine… I’m blessed in the morning… I’m blessed in the evening… and while this is true, I remember someone asking if we can do what Abraham did. The first thing Abraham had to do was to let go. The Lord said “I WILL MAKE YOU INTO…” This process started when the Lord asked Abraham to leave something’s behind and like someone said, “a man’s greatness is measured by his willingness to let go of things”.

We’ve got a few examples. Abraham is one. First of all, he let go of his homeland. And then when tested, he was willing to let go of his blessing… By faith Abraham, when he was put to the test [while the testing of his faith was still in progress], had already brought Isaac for an offering; he who had gladly received and welcomed [God’s] promises was ready to sacrifice his only son (Hebrews 11:17 AMPC). He chose the One that blesses and not the blessing there by allowing God to make him a blessing.

Moses is another one. In order to be a great leader used mightily by God, he had to let go of royalty. Moses… refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter (Hebrews 11:24 NIV). He didn’t let the glamour of this world hold him back. Instead he allowed God make him into a blessing.

Apostle Paul is another one. He said… I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13 NLT). We are still being blessed by his writings today.

Jesus… stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave)… (Philippians 2:7 AMPC). Jesus let go of His throne, humbled Himself and as a resulted we are blessed with the gift of salvation.

What we have in common here is obedience, humility and dying to their own will. They had to let go of the things that we would naturally want to hold on to but then, these are the things that make it difficult for God to make you into the blessing carrier that He wants you to be.

Do you know that that thing you are holding on to may be the exact thing that is holding you back? Though Abraham obeyed God by leaving his native country, this was initially partial obedience because we are told that… he took… his nephew Lot (Genesis 12:5 NLT)… an act that delayed him until he eventually let go.

Beloved, what’s holding you back (Hebrews 12:1)?

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?
