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 Or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion?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.

03. October 2017 · Comments Off on DON’T ALLOW FEAR RULE YOU · Categories: Decision making, Fear, Jesus Christ, Joy, Love, Peace, Relationship, Trusting God

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of SOUND JUDGMENT and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control] (2 Timothy 1:7 AMP).

Beloved, there are moments in our lives when we have to make crucial decisions and I remember going through a season where I needed to make a decision and was almost like a nervous wreck because I didn’t want to miss the will of God. Unfortunately, because I was so concerned about not missing God, the devil tried to torment the life out of me until the Lord began to minister to me about it.

Beloved, the first thing we ought to know about the nature of God is that He is good. If you don’t know any other attribute, know that He is good. What this should mean is that regardless of whatever you are going through, if you put it up against the goodness of God, you will find that it will always work out for your good (Romans 8:28).

There was the time Elijah was about to lose his mind because of the threat of the enemy. God accessed the situation and the first thing He did before anything else was give Elijah something to eat and drink, and then made sure he caught a good rest before asking him; what are you doing here? (1 Kings 19:5-9).

That’s the side of God the enemy doesn’t want us to see. Unfortunately, because our knowledge of God is wrongly influenced by our painful past experiences, we tend to develop that unhealthy fear where we say I can’t afford to make the wrong decision and yes, nobody wants to make wrong decisions but then, when you become so anxious about it that it’s disturbing your sleep, please know that the devil is behind it.

One way you know the devil is in operation is that there’s torment and fear and we must know that everything rooted in torment and fear is straight from hell. So, if at any point, you are left with feelings of anxiety, worry and fear of being punished by God for missing Him, these are clues that you are believing a lie from the enemy because the nature of God is good and if your heart and motivation is to please Him, He would always step in somehow. Jesus said… I will not abandon you as orphans… (John 14:18 NLT), I will be in you, prompting you to make the right decisions.

Beloved, everything rooted in love and joy is from God and one way you know that God is involved in it that there is love and peace. So, the question you need to always ask yourself is “does this bring peace? Does this bring joy? When you are trying to make a decision, that’s what you should put it up against.

Remember, God has given us a spirit of power and of love and of SOUND JUDGMENT… abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind.

Jacob said to Joseph, “God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me. He said to me, ‘I will make you fruitful, and I will multiply your descendants. I will make you a multitude of nations. And I will give this land of Canaan to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.’ (Genesis 48:3-4 NLT)

Beloved, the above conversation took place between Jacob and Joseph towards the end of his life where he is telling his son about the covenant promise the Lord made to their family but because life happened to Jacob, it took this long for Him to remember this promise and I bet it’s only now he starts to see things differently. This was a man that had a personal encounter with the Lord where the Lord revealed the promise but the moment Jacob thought his son was dead, he decided it was all over, failing to realise that it didn’t matter what the situation looked like, all things were working out all along for his good (Romans 8:28).

Beloved, despite the Lord’s promise, Jacob focused on problems and so decided to live a depressed life. When He thought Joseph was dead… His family all tried to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “I will go to my grave mourning for my son,” he would say, and then he would weep (Genesis 37:35 NLT). Later, he told Pharaoh… “I have lived 130 long, hard years, and I am not nearly as old as many of my ancestors.” (Genesis 47:9 TLB)

Jacob settled for a miserable life all because he believed in the situation presented before Him rather than the Lord’s promises. When he was eventually reunited with Joseph… Jacob said to Joseph, “I never thought I would see your face again, but now God has let me see your children, too!” (Genesis 48:11 NLT).

Hmmm… IF ONLY WE JUST TRUST GOD…

I read something interesting that Jacob told Joseph as he blessed Joseph’s sons. He said… THE GOD WHO HAS BEEN MY SHEPHERD [leading and caring for me] all my life to this day… bless the boys; (Genesis 48:15-16 AMP).

Really, Jacob? THE GOD WHO HAS BEEN MY SHEPHERD? Psalm 23 comes to mind… The Lord is my shepherd… He leads me… He guides me… Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:1-4 NIV).

So, Jacob, if the Lord is really your Shepherd,‎ why not just trust His leading… His comfort? Because even when He takes you through the darkest valley, it still leads to where He’s taking you.

Beloved, many of us can recite Psalm 23 but let’s not be like Jacob living it till the last minute to find peace. The Lord is either your Shepherd or He isn’t. If He is, then TRUST THE PATH HE LEADS YOU THROUGH and find peace and rest for your soul.

16. September 2017 · Comments Off on ARE YOU REIGNING IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD? · Categories: Jesus Christ, Joy, Mind, Peace, Prayer

[After all] the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] PEACE AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT (Romans 14:17 AMPC).

Beloved, one of the things I’ve felt the Lord has been addressing this week is about our emotions and the question is; are you really experiencing peace and joy in your life? Are you really acknowledging God’s rule over your life? Are you really reigning in the kingdom of God? Is your mind always troubled over stuff? Most of us know how to talk the Christian talk, know what is right from wrong and can put on a show in public to make it seem like we’ve got it all together but behind closed doors, its tears, tears and more tears. You are always worried and anxious over the things going on around you; the things nobody else knows you are going through. You are saved no doubt but ARE YOU REIGNING IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

Where’s your peace? Where’s your joy? I like how the Message translation put our feature text… God’s kingdom isn’t a matter of what you put in your stomach, for goodness’ sake. IT’S WHAT GOD DOES WITH YOUR LIFE AS HE SETS IT RIGHT, PUTS IT TOGETHER, AND COMPLETES IT WITH JOY.

Beloved, are you waiting for everything to be perfect before you experience real peace and joy? Didn’t they say true joy isn’t based on what is happening around you but from the Holy Spirit that flows from within you? I don’t think Jesus promised that everything would be smooth. In fact, He made sure He prepared the minds of His disciples. Jesus said… I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NLT)

The storms of life happen to the just and the unjust but what differentiates the just from the unjust is the peace and joy that reigns over their lives while going through the storm; the kind of peace that Jesus gives that the world cannot understand.

Beloved, we’ve been given a solution for handling the storms of life… Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7 NLT). So, if you are struggling with experiencing real joy, why not ask the Lord today to… restore to you the joy of your salvation (Psalm 51:12) and see Him anoint you afresh with the oil of joy and gladness.

29. August 2017 · Comments Off on WORKING ON YOUR FOUNDATION · Categories: Endurance, Fruit of the Spirit, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Joy, Offense, Patience, Relationship, Spiritual Growth

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing (James 1:2-4 AMP).

Beloved, I remember talking to someone a while back about all the things we experience in life. We were talking about some of the things we have to go through in the hands of people but then they said: “the stones people throw at you… God will use them to build your foundation”.

‘THE STONES PEOPLE THROW AT YOU, GOD WILL USE THEM TO BUILD YOUR FOUNDATION‎’…

Interesting! Many times, we cry out to the Lord… Can’t you see how they are troubling me? Can’t you see how they are gossiping about me? Can’t you see how they’ve treated me unfairly? Can’t you see‎ how they are plotting evil against me? Can’t you see? Can’t you see? Can’t you see?

But the Lord would just stay… Be still and know that I am God… The trials or should I say stones that they are throwing your way is performing a duty in your life. Some people come your way to test your faith but this is building your foundation. It is only a proving of your faith to bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience‎ in you; because you are going to need these virtues to sustain you later on in life.

We know the story of Hannah. Peninnah threw some large stones at Hannah that turned her into a prayer warrior (1 Samuel 1).

Beloved, when the Lord is working on your foundation, and your character in particular, He would allow people to do and say all sorts about you and the question is are you going to spend your precious time responding to them? How many people are you going to respond to anyway? Don’t allow everything faze you. In the past, I would ponder over things people did or said to me until I can feel bile in my stomach and then offence would kick in big time but‎ I’ve been surprised at how I’m able to easily shake things off. That’s because the Lord has made me endure things from people. The Lord has been working and is still working on my foundation… perfecting and fully developing me… with no defects, to be lacking in nothing. People are bound to say more stuff and if you get offended over everything everyone says, you would be a mess.

Beloved, our feature text is probably referring to trials and temptations more serious than our so-called situations but it’s worth recognising how the Lord uses every stone thrown your way to develop a better you.

Consider it wholly joyful… so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing

Then I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, let letters be given to me for the governors of the provinces beyond the [Euphrates] River, so that they will allow me to pass through until I reach Judah, and a letter to Asaph, the keeper of the king’s forest, so that he will give me timber to construct beams for the gates of the fortress which is by the temple, and for the city wall and for the house which I will occupy.” And the king granted me what I asked, for the good hand of my God was upon me. Then I came to the governors of the provinces beyond the [Euphrates] River and gave them the king’s letters. Now the king had sent officers of the army and horsemen with me. When Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard this, it caused them great displeasure that someone had come to see about the welfare and prosperity of the Israelites. (Nehemiah 2:7-10 NLT)

Beloved, anyone that has ever set out to build anything for the Lord can tell you that there are moments when you get so discouraged because of the way the enemy launches an attack on you just to frustrate you but as I started meditating on the story of Nehemiah, the first thing that caught my attention was his name which means “The Lord comforts” or “comforted by YAHWEH”.

This spoke volumes to me because it’s almost as if the Lord was telling Nehemiah that on this journey that I have set you apart for, I would be the only one to comfort you because you are about to confront some things that you never even knew existed.

Beloved, I have shared before how the name Sanballat means “secret hatred” or “enemy in secret” and you would be surprised how many surrounds you. You just start building and see.

Nehemiah said… when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard about it, they mocked us and regarded us with contempt and said, “What is this thing you are doing? Are you rebelling against the king?” I answered them, “The God of heaven [has appointed us for His purpose and] will give us success; therefore we His servants will arise and build….” Nehemiah 2:19‭-‬20 AMP)

Beloved, do you feel like giving up? Are you feeling frustrated right now and feel there’s no one to comfort you? The Lord is your comfort and He is the One that would give you success regardless of the opposition. When everything was against David, the Bible says… David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all of them were embittered, each man for his sons and daughters. But David felt strengthened and encouraged in the Lord his God (1 SAMUEL 30:6 AMP)

There’s a reason Jesus said… And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever (John 14:16 AMP). Allow Him to comfort you… Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5 NKJV).

28. March 2017 · Comments Off on FIND JOY IN THE LORD · Categories: Fruit of the Spirit, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Joy

Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD! I WILL BE JOYFUL IN THE GOD OF MY SALVATION! (Habakkuk 3:17-18 NLT)

Beloved, the saying that ‘HAPPINESS IS BASED ON THE THINGS HAPPENING AROUND YOU’ suggests that you can only be happy when conditions are favourable. So one minute you could be happy but the next you could be sad. Joy, on the other hand isn’t based on what’s happening around you. As Christians, this is based on the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

Apostle Paul should serve as an example for us. Physically confined behind the prison walls, he proclaims… REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS. AGAIN I WILL SAY, REJOICE! (Philippians 4:4 NKJV). How free could he have been? If you ask me, I would say freer than most of us on the outside. Here’s a man writing from prison to people not in prison asking them to REJOICE. The New Living Translation says… ALWAYS BE FULL OF JOY IN THE LORD. I SAY IT AGAIN—REJOICE!… The Message Translation says… CELEBRATE GOD ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. I MEAN, REVEL IN HIM!

Apostle Paul did not focus on his past nor present situation. He said… I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13)

He learnt how to be CONTENT AND CONFIDENT IN CHRIST. He said… I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have LEARNED THE SECRET of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength (Philippians 4:12-13 NLT).

Beloved, Apostle Paul advises that you should focus on Christ and not on the struggles you are facing. You are meant to REPLACE WORRYING WITH PRAYER AND THANKSGIVING. He says… Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7 NLT).

He also advises that you should…Fix your thoughts on what is TRUE, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise (Philippians 4:8 NLT) and not on the FACTS of your situation.

Beloved, what are you facing that has sapped the life out of you? Why not locate your joy in the Lord? Focus on Jesus and He will anoint you by pouring out the oil of joy until it overflows.

03. March 2017 · Comments Off on YOUR JOY IS ON ITS WAY · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Joy, Trusting God

…[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work] (Hebrews 12:2 AMP).

Beloved, this is for those who had to make some very hard decisions to endure some things rather than look for the exit route. For whatever it is that you had to go through, you did not ‘enjoy’ it but you chose to ‘endure’ it and the fulfilment of this Scripture would not be complete if you just stop at you enduring the cross but there was a reason Jesus endured the cross, disregarding the shame and once that reason was accomplished, He got elevated big time.

Our feature text talks about focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of our faith because He is the One that led the way for us to follow and I’m reminded of what He told Peter when… Peter started saying to Him, “Look, we have given up everything and followed You [becoming Your disciples and accepting You as Teacher and Lord].” Jesus said, “I ASSURE YOU and most solemnly say to you, there is no one who has given up a house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, WHO WILL NOT RECEIVE A HUNDRED TIMES AS MUCH NOW IN THE PRESENT AGE—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms—along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life (Mark 10:28-30 AMP).

…WHO WILL NOT RECEIVE A HUNDRED TIMES AS MUCH NOW IN THE PRESENT AGE…

Beloved, Jesus told Peter… I ASSURE YOU… and we know that He is not a man that would lie or change His mind (Numbers 23:19), so this is not the time to lose all hope and be disappointed… For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do. Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance (Hebrews 6:10-12 NLT).

Beloved, be expectant! Your bundle of joy is on its way…

23. February 2017 · Comments Off on THE LORD’S PLAN SHOULD GIVE YOU PEACE · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Joy, Peace, Trusting God

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘PLANS FOR PEACE and WELL-BEING and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP).

PLANS FOR PEACE…

Beloved, from our feature text, every plan that comes from God ought to give you peace no matter how crazy it may sound at first. Anything short of that peace may not from God.

At this point, I am thinking of Mary the mother of Jesus whom till date must have received the most confusing plan ever given to mankind, yet instead of losing sleep over it, she pondered over it for a short while, asked her most important question and after receiving an answer that could be seen as even more confusing… 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 1:38 AMP).

Beloved, that was it. God’s plan should come with peace and assurance even when it doesn’t exactly make sense. The key is to diligently seek the Lord for how to accomplish that plan.

The Lord says… Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord… (Jeremiah 29:12-14 AMP)

PLANS FOR WELL-BEING…

Well-being talks of your general health including your mental well-being. Are you sleeping well? Are you living stress-free? Are you eating well?

The Lord says… Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 2 NKJV). That’s another plan the Lord has for you. Your soul talks about your mind, your emotions etc. and if they are not in line with what the Lord plans for you which should ultimately bring you peace, then something is wrong somewhere.

Beloved, when we remove the Lord from the equation and embark on our own plans, then things start to fall apart and we fall apart with them but the Bible says… Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise early, to retire late, to eat the bread of anxious labors— For He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep (Psalm 127:1-2 AMP).

Beloved, this is God’s plan for you and He says… Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).

05. February 2017 · Comments Off on REACH INWARDS · Categories: Healing, Help, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Joy, Peace

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty COME TO ME and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, RIVERS OF LIVING WATER WILL FLOW FROM WITHIN THEM.” BY THIS HE MEANT THE SPIRIT… (John 7:37-39 NIV).

Beloved, most times there’s always the tendency to reach out to other things to fulfil our desires and needs but we often fail to realise what we carry on the inside. The KJV of our feature text says… OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER. This is what Jesus promised us and BY THIS HE MEANT THE SPIRIT. Before Jesus was crucified, He said… I will ask the Father, and He will give you another COMFORTER (COUNSELOR, HELPER, INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE, STRENGTHENER, AND STANDBY), that He may remain with you forever— The Spirit of Truth… you know and recognize Him, FOR HE LIVES WITH YOU [CONSTANTLY] AND WILL BE IN YOU (John 14:16-17 AMP).

So, what’s inside of you?

A COMFORTER is someone that comforts, eases, reliefs and relaxes you. A COMFORTER is one that helps you to feel less worried, upset or frightened. Most times, people would reach out to various things to get this comfort and I’m not about to list them but you know what you resort to. For me it’s mostly food. I’ve always got the tendency to turn to food to find some sort of satisfaction when I’m feeling down but we know the result of that; momentary satisfaction followed by a sense of guilt and a whole load of health-related problems… it’s not always the devil responsible for those health problems you know.

Beloved, it’s interesting when you do a Google search for COMFORTER that one of the first things you would see is a special type of blanket (quilts or duvets), filled with insulative material that gives you warmth. It is mainly used in cold countries and if you live in one, you know its value. Imagine that wrapped around you? Most times when it gets very cold, you can’t wait to get home and get under your duvet. But not just that, at times when you feel down, you just want to crawl in bed and with the lights off, cover yourself up from head to toe with your duvet, hoping that it would all go away and while it may help for a while, you can’t lie there forever.

However, everything you are looking for to give you relief is inside of you; OUT OF YOUR BELLY; which means you exchange worldly comfort, peace and joy for what has already been deposited inside of you. All you need to do is PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR BELLY and say… IT’S IN ME… Holy Spirit… I need the kind of comfort that only You can provide.
