Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding (Proverbs 3:5 AMP).

Beloved, I remember my brother’s wedding a while back. The day before, we made sure we packed everything we needed including some items in a bag which we left by the front door so we wouldn’t forget it. There’s no way we could ever miss that right? Well, we did, and we didn’t get to find out until we got to the church and I was the one who was told to go back and get it.

I wasn’t happy about it because I felt that by the time I got back, I would have missed the best part of the wedding. However, I had no choice but to drive all the way home and as I opened the door, I was welcomed by a burning smell. I got to the kitchen only to find that we had forgotten something on the cooker. Now, can you imagine what would have happened if I hadn’t gone back when I did?

This reminds me of how disappointed David was when he found out he was not allowed to go to war with the Philistines. He couldn’t understand why… “What have I done to deserve this treatment?” David demanded. “What have you ever found in your servant, that I can’t go and fight the enemies of my lord the king?” (1 Samuel 29:8 NLT)

Well, he didn’t get to go so had to go back home but… when David and his men arrived home at their town of Ziklag, they found that the Amalekites had made a raid into the Negev and Ziklag; they had crushed Ziklag and burned it to the ground. They had carried off the women and children and everyone else… (1 Samuel 30:1-2 NLT).

Beloved, David came back to find that they had been raided. Can you imagine if he had gone to war? Only God knows how long it would have lasted. But because he came back early, he was able to pursue the Amalekites and found them spread out across the fields, eating and drinking and dancing with joy because of the vast amount of plunder they had taken.

David got back everything the Amalekites had taken, and he rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing: small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back. (1 Samuel 30:18-19 NLT)

Beloved, we don’t always understand what God is up to when things don’t go our way but if He opens our eyes to see how He protects us daily, we would be forever grateful. Scripture says… The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever (Psalm 121:7-8 NLT).

You may not always know what the Lord is up to, but you must be confident that He’s got your back. What you think is a disappointment is working out for your good. Like our feature text says, you must trust in the Lord and do not rely on your own understanding.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

16. October 2017 · Comments Off on COME OUT OF THE LAND OF DESPAIR · Categories: Identity, Jesus Christ, Restoration, Trusting God

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; DO NOT DEPEND ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)

Beloved, the thought that one’s situations can change in a matter of seconds is sometimes very hard to grasp. We look all around us and think that there’s no way it can ever happen but our feature text says … DO NOT DEPEND ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. However, that’s where we get stuck. We try to reason things out and are quick to conclude that there’s no hope. We then find ourselves in a state of despair. We feel nothing will ever turn out well.

Such was Mephiboshet’s case… who was crippled as a child. He was five years old when the report came from Jezreel that Saul and Jonathan had been killed in battle. When the child’s nurse heard the news, she picked him up and fled. But as she hurried away, she dropped him, and he became crippled (2 Samuel 4:4 NLT).

His misery started at an early age so he grew up accepting his fate. What else was he to do? Father and grandfather dead and he was crippled but then he didn’t see this coming. No leaning on his own understanding could work this one out… ONE DAY David asked, “Is anyone in Saul’s family still alive—anyone to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” … Ziba replied, “Yes, one of Jonathan’s sons is still alive. He is crippled in both feet.” “Where is he?” the king asked. “IN LO-DEBAR,” Ziba told him…” (2 Samuel 9:1-4 NLT)

LO-DEBAR means a place of no pasture, barren land, land of desolation; basically, nothing’s happening there but that fateful day was his moment to leave that Land… David sent for him and … When he came to David… David said… I will give you all the property that once belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will EAT HERE WITH ME AT THE KING’S TABLE!” Mephibosheth bowed respectfully and exclaimed, “Who is your servant, that you should show such kindness to A DEAD DOG like me?” (2 Samuel 9:5-8 NLT)

DEAD DOG? What a state of despair? Anyway, that was in the past. SO, WHAT WAS HIS NEW STATUS?… from that time on, Mephibosheth ate regularly at David’s table… all the members of Ziba’s household were Mephibosheth’s servants. And Mephibosheth, who was crippled in both feet, lived in Jerusalem and ate regularly at the king’s table (2 SAMUEL 9:11-13 NLT).

Beloved, from a man with no hope for the future to a property (s) owner with many servants who now dines with the king – all in one day. Now, if this happened because of a man’s promise, why can’t you believe the Lord’s promise to change your situation? It’s time to come out of the land of despair and start believing God for what seems impossible.

Will the Lord reject forever? And will He never be favorable again? Has His lovingkindness ceased forever? Have His promises ended for all time? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion? Selah. And I said, “This is my grief, That the right hand of the Most High has changed [and His lovingkindness is withheld].” I will [solemnly] remember the deeds of the Lord; Yes, I will [wholeheartedly] remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your works And thoughtfully consider all Your [great and wondrous] deeds (PSALM 77:7‭-‬12 AMP).

Beloved, our feature text presents us with something worth noting and that’s the switch in Asaph’s approach to how he approached his situation. First of all, he starts with the ‘woe is me’ speech; God has rejected me. God has forgotten about me… bla bla bla… However, there happens to be a switch the moment he starts to take his eyes off his problems and how he was feeling to focus on the works and wonders of God.

According to my Bible notes, “Asaph did not feel any more at peace, but he made a conscious decision to turn from his pain and focus his thoughts on the Person, works, and wonders of God. When we are in distress, we often feel that it is our right to vent our frustrations and complaints as long as we still feel them, but God doesn’t call us to be driven by feelings. Instead, WE HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY DECIDE TO PRAISE GOD, trusting that the feeling will follow”.

WE HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY DECIDE TO PRAISE GOD…

Beloved, Habakkuk lets us know how we must posture our hearts at all time. He says… Though the fig tree does not blossom And there is no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive fails And the fields produce no food, Though the flock is cut off from the fold And there are no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will [choose to] rejoice in the Lord; I will [choose to] shout in exultation in the [victorious] God of my salvation! The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet And makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility]. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments (HABAKKUK 3:17‭-‬19 AMP).

This should always be our attitude hence the reason Jesus told the Samaritan woman… But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way (John 4:23 NLT).

Beloved, TRUTH is based on who God is and not based on our feeling. Don’t be driven by your feelings. Rather, meditate on all His works and thoughtfully consider all His [great and wondrous] deeds.

17. September 2017 · Comments Off on WHOSE GOVERNMENT ARE YOU UNDER? · Categories: Fear, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Peace, Power and Authority, Relationship, Restoration, Thoughts, Trusting God

For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; And the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace… (Isaiah 9:6 AMP).

Beloved, whose government are you under? Our feature text informs us that under Jesus’ government, you have peace. You are counselled by a Wonderful Counsellor. He’s the kind of counsellor that would find you sleeping under the broom tree, wake you up, feed you (1 Kings 19:5-8) and when He feels you are ready to talk, He would ask you… “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:9 NLT). He’s the kind of counsellor that would address that spirit of heaviness and make you ask yourself… why are you in despair, O my soul? (Psalm 42:5). Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad?…

Beloved, could you be under a different government? Why have you allowed fear rule over you and snatch your peace? Jesus’ government is what we were promised. The Message translation of our feature text says… He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness He brings…

Under His government, like Peter, you should be able to sleep peacefully through a storm. We are told that… The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate (Acts 12:6 NLT). That’s because He observed His Governor do the same thing. Once they experienced a fierce storm but… Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke Him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t You care that we’re going to drown?” When Jesus woke up, He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mark 4:38-40 NLT)

Beloved, it’s time to… set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:2 NKJV). That’s where Jesus rules from and it is… with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3). So, think joyful thoughts… whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you (Philippians 4:8-9 AMP).

15. September 2017 · Comments Off on START SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR SITUATION · Categories: Action, God's Plan, Hope, Jesus Christ, Power and Authority, Restoration, Trusting God, Words

Then He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?” “O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.” Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! (Ezekiel 37:3-5 NLT).

Beloved, have you got an ‘ONLY GOD KNOWS’ situation‏? By this I mean, from the way things are going, you don’t have the confidence to say this is how this thing is going to turn out because in your eyes, it is more or less a dead situation. Such was the case with Ezekiel in our feature text but the Lord showed him that he could speak the word of the Lord over the situation to make it live again.

In the same way, you shouldn’t just sit there and watch things die. You should respond by prophesying life into that situation. If you know the mind of Christ then you know what He desires. Jesus said… The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life (John 10:10 NLT). His word also says… Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually] (3 John 2 AMPC). So, instead of sitting there wondering whether you would ever get well… whether you are ever going to succeed, why not prophecy and say “I’m going to get well… I’m going to succeed”. Locate what the word of God says and don’t stop speaking it.

Ezekiel said… So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone (Ezekiel 37:7 EXB).

Beloved, Ezekiel said “So ‘I’”, not the Lord, ‘I’ prophesied and something happened and while it may be a progressive thing where you don’t see all the results at once, just keep prophesying… Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’” So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army (Ezekiel 37:9-10 NLT).

This is what the Sovereign Lord says… So I spoke … and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet…

Beloved,… Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words (Proverbs 18:21 AMP). Why not start speaking life into your situation?

Then they came to Bethsaida; and some people brought a blind man to Jesus and begged Him to touch him. Taking the blind man by the hand, He led him out of the village; and after spitting on his eyes and laying His hands on him, He asked him, “Do you see anything?” And he looked up and said, “I see people, but [they look] like trees, walking around.” Then again Jesus laid His hands on his eyes; and the man stared intently and [his sight] was [completely] restored, and he began to see everything clearly. And He sent him to his home, saying, “DO NOT EVEN ENTER THE VILLAGE.” (Mark 8:22‭-‬26 AMP)
 
DO NOT EVEN ENTER THE VILLAGE…
 
Beloved, in our feature text, we see that before Jesus could heal this blind man, He first had to take him by the hand and lead him out of the village and after Jesus restored him, Jesus gave him strict instructions… DO NOT EVEN ENTER THE VILLAGE…
 
So, the question is why did Jesus say so? It’s probably because there are some toxic environments that are detrimental to you.
 
I was meditating on this Scripture and thinking about the fact there are some environments that the Lord would deliver you from and all you need to do is think of the process of that deliverance for you to know not to go near that environment anymore. The deliverance wasn’t a one time thing. Jesus had to revisit the case several times. This man needed several touches and the process was a messy one; spitting on his eyes and all that… you get the picture!
 
Beloved, when you go through such a process, you know to disassociate yourself from that environment. You know to keep your distance; “I love you with the love of Jesus but I have only just got my sight back and it costs me. So, I don’t want nothing from you. I don’t need to come back and defend my reputation. Say whatever you want to say about me. Think whatever you want to think of me. If I have done anything to offend you, I apologise from the bottom of my heart and I ask that you please forgive me but from now on, you do you while I do me. God bless you.
 
Beloved, unfortunately, Bethsaida was a “woe to you” environment. Jesus said… “Woe (judgment is coming) to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented and changed their minds long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes [to show deep regret for sin]. However, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you (Luke 10:13‭-‬14 AMP). And while we may never understand why Jesus would tell us to stay clear of certain environment, all we need to think of is our ‘before’ and ‘after’ picture and know that… It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1 NIV).
 
SELAH!

07. September 2017 · Comments Off on WHAT IF YOU KNEW IT’S ONLY A TEST? · Categories: Endurance, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Patience, Restoration, Trusting God

“All right, YOU MAY TEST HIM,” the Lord said to Satan. “Do whatever you want with everything he possesses, but don’t harm him physically.” So Satan left the Lord’s presence (Job 1:12 NLT).

Beloved, I wonder how Job would have handled his trials if someone had told him upfront that it was only a test. Would he have said some of the things he said like… I hate my life and don’t want to go on living. Oh, leave me alone for my few remaining days (Job 7:16 NLT). Or… What strength do I have left, that I should wait [and hope]? And WHAT IS AHEAD OF ME, that I should be patient and endure? (Job 6:11 AMP)

WHAT IS AHEAD OF YOU?

Now let’s see… So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. He also gave Job seven more sons and three more daughters. He named his first daughter Jemimah, the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. In all the land no women were as lovely as the daughters of Job. And their father put them into his will along with their brothers. Job lived 140 years after that, living to see four generations of his children and grandchildren. Then he died, an old man who had lived a long, full life (Job 42:12-17 NLT).

Beloved, there are some things we say when overwhelmed with the things we face and I wonder if unlike Job’s ignorance, knowing that it’s a test could help us find peace and stay calm.

Though Job’s friends did not make things easy for him, I like what Eliphaz said to him… “In the past you have encouraged many people; you have strengthened those who were weak. Your words have supported those who were falling; you encouraged those with shaky knees. But now when trouble strikes, you lose heart. You are terrified when it touches you. DOESN’T YOUR REVERENCE FOR GOD GIVE YOU CONFIDENCE? DOESN’T YOUR LIFE OF INTEGRITY GIVE YOU HOPE? (Job 4:3-6 NLT)

In order words, you should be able to encourage yourself and say I know where I stand with God… He knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold (Job 23:10 NIV).

Beloved, WHAT IF YOU KNEW IT’S ONLY A TEST? Would you react differently? Would you spend the time in the Lord’s presence praising and worshiping Him? Would you spend time in His word getting to know more about Him and His ways?

SELAH!

“Now then, just as the Lord promised, He has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time He said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as He said.” ‎(Joshua 14:10-12 NIV)

Beloved, I remember listening to someone share about how they were rebuked for saying they were getting old. Someone had asked how they were doing and in response they said… “I’m doing good but I’m getting old”. However, immediately they said that, they were told to erase that narrative from their mind. Apparently, they were in their mid-fifties and this person that asked how they were doing was in their eighties and the reason they said to erase that narrative from their mind was because they said that every good break that they had happened after they were 65 which means that age isn’t a limitation.

ERASE THAT NARRATIVE FROM YOUR MIND!!!

This made me think of Caleb. Many of us are plagued with the ‘I am getting old’ syndrome and that’s why we have things like mid-life crisis syndrome but I like that the Bible points us to role models like Caleb who at the age of 85 had a very different mind-set… I am still as strong today… I’m just as vigorous… Lord helping me, I will drive them out…

‎Beloved, are you feeling like there’s no more hope for you because you think your best days are behind you? Well, where’s your fighting spirit? It’s about what the Lord says you can do and His ability to restore you and help you redeem time ‎but you have to be willing to get up and go after it.

We know about Job who received restoration… double for his trouble and I like the sub-heading my Bible gives that portion of his story; CONCLUSION: THE LORD BLESSES JOB… So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys (Job 42:12 NLT).

The Lord says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts… (Joel 2:25 NLT). However, you can’t hold on to the past and try to take hold of the future as well? So, which one would you let go?

05. September 2017 · Comments Off on PAYING THE PRICE FOR YOUR RESTORATION · Categories: Forgive, Friends, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Restoration

The Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before (Job 42:10 AMP).

Beloved, when God wants to restore you, there are some things He may ask you to do which may sound silly to you. Our feature text tells us of the story of Job and how he had to pray for his friends before the Lord could restore him but how can you ask me to pray for the same people that caused me so much grief when I was facing my most trying period ever? Well, I’ve learnt from experience that you can never tell who the people around you are until you face severe trials. You would be shocked at what people really think about you. Instead of consoling Job in his time of trouble, Job’s three friends, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar came up with all sorts of reasons why he was to blame for what he was going through but they were very wrong and when it was time, God let them know it. And I’m sure if Job knew that one day God would vindicate him, he won’t have spent the little strength he had trying to prove them wrong.

Beloved, I’m sure Job’s friends hurt him badly because there’s nothing as bad as when people you thought were close to you pierce a knife into where already hurts but I’m also sure that God was teaching Job the act of forgiveness. Jesus… said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! (Luke 17:1 NKJV). As for you, just forgive. There would have been a big ‘WOE’ to Job’s friends if he hadn’t prayed for them because God told them… go to my servant Job… My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and NOT DEAL WITH YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR FOLLY… (Job 42:8 NLT)

We would very much like the Lord to deal with our ‘frienemies’ according to their folly but let’s not forget that… The Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. It’s not about them. It’s about you and if that’s the price to pray for your restoration, then that’s the price to pay.

Beloved, it was God that told Job’s friend to go and met Job so he could pray for them so don’t be surprised when some people come knocking asking for your forgiveness and prayers. When they come, pray for them and even if they don’t come, still pray for them and release them to God. As you do so, I pray for a double fold restoration in your life, in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

WHAT ABOUT ME?

So don’t get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time you will reap a harvest of blessing if you don’t give up. Therefore, whenever you have the opportunity, you should do good to everyone… (Galatians 6:9-10 NLT).

Beloved, in the story of the prodigal son, you could almost hear the frustration coming from the elder brother. As he was approaching home, he heard noise from a party thrown for his younger brother. What? I can’t believe what I’m hearing… “The older brother was angry and wouldn’t go in. His father came out and begged him, but he replied, ‘All these years I’ve slaved for you and never once refused to do a single thing you told me to. And in all that time you never gave me even one young goat for a feast with my friends. Yet when this son of yours comes back after squandering your money on prostitutes, you celebrate by killing the fattened calf!’ (Luke 15:28-30 NLT)

Well, there’s always this tendency to think ‘WHAT ABOUT ME? I’ve been faithful. I was the one that did this, this and that and if it were not for me, this won’t have happened. ‘WHAT ABOUT ME?

Beloved, relax, the Lord hasn’t forgotten about you. Having read the Book of Esther and the role Mordecia played in her life; raising her up when her parents died and all of the wonderful things he did for her, the king and God’s people, there’s this tiny voice that wants to say it’s all about Esther. She’s the one that becomes queen. It’s possible for that voice to speak especially as Mordecia was actually forgotten for a while until one day the king said… “What reward or recognition did we ever give Mordecai for this?” the king asked. His attendants replied, “Nothing has been done for him.” (Esther 6:3 NLT)

Mordecia was rewarded for his good deeds and though we call it the Book of Esther, do you know the story did not end with Esther? It ended with Mordecia. The very last verse in the Book of Esther says… Mordecai the Jew became the prime minister, with authority next to that of King Xerxes himself. He was very great among the Jews, who held him in high esteem, because he continued to work for the good of his people and to speak up for the welfare of all their descendants (Esther 10:3 NLT).

Beloved… GOD IS NOT UNJUST; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10 NIV). All your hard work, your labour of love hasn’t gone unnoticed and like our feature text says… let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all… (MSG).
