[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, there’s a song by Jenn Johnson titled ‘God I Look to You’ that has been in my spirit for days now with lyrics that say… God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed… Give me vision to see things like You do… God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from… Give me wisdom; You know just what to do.

One definition of overwhelmed is to bury or drown beneath a huge mass of something. Another definition is to defeat someone or something by using a lot of force. Beloved, that’s what the enemy is up to. He is trying to defeat you by bringing things that would overwhelm you and that’s why like our feature text says, we are to look away from all that will distract us and to focus our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

This is similar to what happened to Peter as he stepped out of the boat to walk on water. Satan sent a huge storm to overwhelm him causing him to take his eyes off Jesus and as he succeeded in doing that, he started to drown him.

Beloved, the devil tries to overwhelm with situations all coming at you at the same time. He also releases a lot of doubt, anxiety, depression, fear, confusion etc just to cloud your judgment but like the song says, this is the time to say… God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed… Give me vision to see things like You do… God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from… Give me wisdom; You know just what to do

You need to ask the Lord for vision to help you see things the way He sees things. But not just vision, you need to also ask for wisdom. The Bible says… If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him. But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help], for the one who doubts is like a billowing surge of the sea that is blown about and tossed by the wind (James 1:5-6 AMP).

Beloved, the psalmist also says… I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber (Psalm 121:1-3 NLT).

29. May 2017 · Comments Off on EMBRACING GOD’S WISDOM‏‏ · Categories: Glory, God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Suffering, Wisdom

No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—His plan that was previously hidden, even though He made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord (1 Corinthians 2:7-8 NLT).

Beloved, have you ever questioned God’s wisdom? Perhaps, you are going through something devastating right now and you just can’t understand what God is up to? Well, He is always up to something even when we can’t understand it.

Referring to the conversation Jesus had with the disciples on the road to Emmaus‎ (Luke 24:13-35), I read a book (Healing the Eight Stages of Life) where the writers said “the despairing disciples began by talking about the tragic death of their friend whom they had counted on to be the Messiah. The disciple’s attitude was “don’t talk to us about God’s wisdom. We haven’t seen much of it in the death of our friend. JESUS SIMPLY SHARED FROM THE SCRIPTURE AND SHOWED HOW EVEN THE EXPERIENCE OF THEIR FRIEND’S DEATH WAS TO BE LIFE-GIVING, PART OF THE WISE PLAN THAT GOD HAD FOR THEIR LIVES””.

It took Jesus to make sense of it and I for one know that it would be so great to just sit down and hear the Lord make sense of our experiences. Something along the lines of… “this is why that happened and this is why this had to happened… and more importantly, where do we go from here?” This is exactly what Jesus did to these disciplines. He opened the Scriptures and started explaining to them that His death was a part of God’s plan all along and they must have been like “I get it now. Lord, You are indeed the wise master planner. You had it all planned out all along and even when the enemy thought he was winning, our feature text tells us that he soon realised that he got played big time.

‎Beloved, we have got to get to the point where we move from despair to embracing God’s wisdom. Joseph told his brothers… you intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people (Genesis 50:20 NLT). When Joseph was going through his ordeal, he had no idea that things would turn out the way they did in the end but he finally got to that place where he embraced God’s wisdom. You too need to do the same even when it doesn’t make sense.

According to one of my bible notes; “One can agree with all the truths in the Bible and still miss the power of God… [which]… cannot be fully grasped by our eight-pound brains. We must approach God humbly as creations, not as those aspiring to fully explain the Creator of the universe.

Beloved, it’s time to… 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).

01. May 2017 · Comments Off on ASK THE LORD FOR A STRATEGY · Categories: Trusting God, Wisdom

Now the Philistines had come and raided the Valley of Rephaim; so David inquired of God: “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?” The Lord answered him, “Go, I will deliver them into your hands.” (1 Chronicles 14:10 NIV)… Once more the Philistines raided the valley; so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, “DO NOT GO DIRECTLY AFTER THEM, but circle around them and attack them in front of the poplar trees. As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.” (1 Chronicles 14:13-15 NIV)

Beloved, there is the saying that we should choose our battles wisely and I believe this is one great lesson we can learn from the great king David, who was constantly faced with battles from the enemy. He had a very smart strategy for handling these battles. Every time he was faced with an enemy, he would always ask God whether it was a cause worth pursuing himself or whether God was going to confuse them first. Basically, David was saying, Lord, what’s the strategy?

So, the question for you today as we enter a new month is, “have you ever stopped to ask the Lord what the strategy is for dealing with the battles you face? Do you know that it is not everybody that confronts you that you respond to?” There may be times the Lord would tell you to do nothing; hold your peace, just be still and know that I am God. He may even tell you to be the first one to make peace. In other words, be the first one to say good morning. That’s bound to confuse them.

Beloved, does every little thing that people do to you trigger you off? Don’t you think fighting every day is bound to wear you out? There are some things the enemy brings your way just to either intimidate or distract you. That’s all. So, instead of always falling for his tricks, why not try doing the same thing David did and ask God, what’s the strategy? If He says that the battle is not worth pursuing, instead of getting so worked up, why not allow God go in front of you.

Beloved, there may be times when the Lord would want you to just focus on Him; worshipping and praising Him. That is the greatest weapon against the enemy. Do it and save your strength for a fight that is worth fighting.

27. January 2017 · Comments Off on IS IT ALL ABOUT YOU? · Categories: Fruit of the Spirit, Humility, Jesus Christ, Pride, Promise, Relationship, Spiritual Growth, Wisdom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men (Proverbs 18:16 NKJV).

Beloved, only last week, I was telling my brother how after leaving university with excellent results, I started looking for a job. After a while, I started getting frustrated but then, I was invited to this interview with a pretty good pay and so I went on my knees and asked God for wisdom. The kind of prayer that says “Lord I’ve exhausted all my efforts and really need your help”.

I studied Business IT so, on the day of the interview I was led to take my dissertation project and at the interview, I walked them through an online system I built and after a few days, they called me back to say that they have already filled the position that they advertised and I’m thinking so why are you calling me. However, they then went on to say that the system I showed them made them think of a project that the government wanted to implement and they wanted to offer me a 3 months’ contract. Well, 3 months turned into 12 years.

Beloved, I’m thinking of when Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream. He not only interpreted the dream, he had a well thought of solution.

He said… Pharaoh should find an intelligent and wise man and put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt. Then Pharaoh should appoint supervisors over the land and let them collect one-fifth of all the crops during the seven good years. Have them gather all the food produced in the good years that are just ahead and bring it to Pharaoh’s storehouses. Store it away, and guard it so there will be food in the cities…” Joseph’s suggestions were well received… So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?” (Genesis 41:33-38 NLT)

Beloved, Joseph created a whole department for himself, helped define his job description and that of his team and… Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are. You will be in charge of my court, and all my people will take orders from you…” (Genesis 41:39-40 NLT)

Recently, someone said that the church is so carried away by praying for money that we don’t pray for wealth and immediately I thought of Solomon who didn’t need to pray for money. He prayed for wisdom which got him wealth. I went on to tell my brother that our prayers need to be strategic. ‎If you want to be a president. Spell it out to God who plants desires in our hearts. Do your research about what’s needed for the position, work out a specific Scripture based prayer plan, table it before God, pray and act in faith.

Beloved, our feature text says the gift God has given you will make room for you. Do you know you can create a position for yourself? People should be able to see what value you can add to them. It should be a case of them saying “I didn’t even think of that”

SELAH!

18. January 2017 · Comments Off on THE RESULTS OF WISDOM · Categories: Action, Choices, Decision making, Jesus Christ, Wisdom

…But wisdom is shown to be right by its results (Matthew 11:19 NLT)

Beloved, our feature text is one of those texts that’s not took deep to understand. You don’t need to get some deep revelation from it. It basically says in whatever you do, your results would determine if you are wise or not and I remember listening to someone ask a question that helped me change many things in my life. “Why are people so loyal to dysfunction?”, they asked.

Dysfunction simply means a failure to function in an expected manner and so when something isn’t given the expected results why do we choose to continue doing it?

The Amplified Bible says… wisdom is justified and vindicated by her deeds [in the lives of those who respond to Me].”

Beloved, if after so many years your deeds have not been justified and vindicated, then maybe you have to think again. We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result except that result is what we are expecting. Even the prodigal son came to himself and said wait a minute what am I actually doing (Luke 15:17). Jacob is another one. He told Laban… Yes, for twenty years I slaved in your house! I worked for fourteen years earning your two daughters, and then six more years for your flock. And you changed my wages ten times! (Genesis 31:41 NLT). Jacob had to receive wisdom from the Lord to set himself free.

The Bible says… If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking (James 1:5 NLT). This means the Lord is willing to give you true wisdom if only you would ask Him for it. However, the issue is that… when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord (James 1:6-7 NLT).

Some ask the Lord for wisdom but then rely on other sources as well and as a result, what they receive become polluted. You want to know everybody’s opinion about it. The other frustrating aspect of this is when someone wants you to follow their example but they have no results to show for it and if you keep heeding to their advice, don’t be surprised that you are just as unfruitful as they are.

Beloved, what’s the result of wisdom?

Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly (Proverbs 3:13-18 NLT).

27. November 2016 · Comments Off on DON’T FORGET TO ASK THE LORD FOR WISDOM · Categories: Jesus Christ, Trusting God, Wisdom

If you don’t have all the wisdom needed for this journey, then all you have to do is ask God for it; and God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking (James 1:5 Voice).

Beloved, every now and then, we get to a place where we find that we are stuck because we are not sure what to do next. At those moments, things can become so overwhelming but it’s at such times that we have to remember that the Lord promises that we can come to Him for wisdom and like our feature text says‎… God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking

God is able and willing to give it to you and according to my Bible notes… Wisdom, as James understands it, is the ability to live life well and make good decisions. Wisdom doesn’t come from old age or hard knocks. Wisdom begins with knowing and depending absolutely on God, who is never stingy when it comes to wisdom for those who seek it. He supplies all the wisdom we need when we ask. But when we try to go it alone—without God, trouble is around the corner.

Beloved, that’s where we tend to struggle; trying to go it alone—without God. But why would we rather choose worldly wisdom when the word of God says… God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty] (1 Corinthians 1:27 AMP)

Beloved, the wisdom that comes from God may not make sense at times but you are to… trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way] (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP).

Beloved, instead of sitting there scratching your head trying to figure out what to do, don’t forget to ask the Lord for wisdom. However, you must not doubt His wisdom. The Scripture goes on to say… The key is that your request be anchored by your single-minded commitment to God. Those who depend only on their own judgment are like those lost on the seas, carried away by any wave or picked up by any wind. Those adrift on their own wisdom shouldn’t assume the Lord will rescue them or bring them anything. The splinter of divided loyalty shatters your compass and leaves you dizzy and confused (James 1:6-8 Voice).

Beloved, don’t be dizzy and confused. It does not matter how hard the case may be, the Lord has made you a promise and it’s up to you to make use of the opportunity.

29. October 2016 · Comments Off on ‏RELYING ON THE LORDS JUDGEMENT OF THINGS · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Trusting God, Wisdom

The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord is on His heavenly throne. He observes everyone on earth; His eyes examine them (Psalms 11:4 NIV).

Beloved, there’s nothing like when you know your hands are clean towards people and your motives are pure because that’s when you can boldly come before the Lord and say “Lord, based on what you know about this case, deal with it because I trust your judgement. I know that from where you seat, You see everything and know everything and because You show no favouritism, I trust that you would always be fair”.

Beloved, I found that this is a powerful prayer because nothing goes unnoticed by God. You can then go to bed peacefully knowing that you are not afraid of the outcome because your hands and motives are clean. It’s only if you’ve been dodgy that you become uneasy.

Also, no matter how wise you think you are, your knowledge is always limited. You may not always know what is really going on around you and most times, we tend to deal with situations based on the way they are presented to us. We are always too quick to react based on what we see or hear. We come in contact with and communicate with people on a daily basis. They smile at us. They say things that seem through but we don’t know what is really true and what is false. We assess people based on what we see. However, there is a lot of deception going on. But even putting deception to own side, the Lord knows the outcome of every situation and things that may appear brilliant now may turn out to be very dangerous later so we need to be careful. That lady or guy that looks like a wife or husband material today may turn out to be a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. Not to talk of who you thought was your best friend.

Beloved, you are asked to… Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV). There’s nothing like when you hand over your whole life to God and say… Lord… from the things You know and see, please deal with every issue concerning my life and help me with my discernment.

Beloved, as far as you are obedient to His voice, you can’t do wrong… If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; (Psalm 91:9-11 NIV)‏

…let us drop every extra weight, every sin that clings to us and slackens our pace, and let us run with endurance the long race set before us (Hebrews 12:1-2 Voice).

Beloved, I came across something that someone wrote that was spot on. He said he left his wife in the car to quickly run into the shops to get something. However, when he got back to the car, his wife began complaining about the temperature in the car. She couldn’t understand why he left it that high. She went on and on about how she couldn’t breathe and he just allowed her to keep ranting and then he finally asked her “why didn’t you turn the heat down?”

Beloved, I read it and immediately did a screenshot and sent it to a friend with a comment that said “just read this and though of our earlier conversation”

She had just been on the phone to me for a good amount of time complaining about someone in her life that has always been a source of constant stress to the point that she can hardly breathe. She went on to say she’s had enough and is now praying to God to remove her from her life but I told her He may not. God will not do what you can do yourself. He might just leave you there expecting you to exercise the wisdom He has given you.

Abraham comes to mind. He was travelling with Lot whom he wasn’t supposed to be travelling with. Unfortunately, he couldn’t make any headway because of the distractions of having to settle one dispute or the other with Lot and so he finally said to lot… Let’s not fight. I don’t want there to be any animosity between you and me, or between our herders. After all, we’re family. A vast land is out there and available to you. It is time for us to go our separate ways. You choose your land. If you choose east, I’ll go west. If you choose west, I’ll go east—it’s your call (Genesis 13:8-9Voice).

Beloved, there’s nowhere in the Bible that we are told that the Lord told Abraham to separate from Lot. The Lord remained silent. It was only after Abraham had taken the bold and wise step to do so that the Lord spoke… After Lot had gone, the Lord said to Abram, “Look as far as you can see in every direction—north and south, east and west. I am giving all this land, as far as you can see, to you and your descendants as a permanent possession (Genesis 13:14-15 NLT).

This man went on to say that some changes in our lives do not require the presence or permission of people. We are the ones that have to make the change else we remain stuck.

Beloved, our feature text talks about dropping every extra weight and travelling light and there are times when we have to do a stock take; is this person a distraction, always bringing me down; always causing strife etc. If the answer is yes, then you may have to make necessary changes so you can travel light.

22. August 2016 · Comments Off on ‏‏IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT YOU‏ · Categories: Action, Agreement, God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Self Control, Wisdom

There’s a slogan often quoted on matters like this: “All things are permitted.” Yes, but not all things are beneficial. “ALL THINGS ARE PERMITTED,” THEY SAY. YES, BUT NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY. WE SHOULD STOP LOOKING OUT FOR OUR OWN INTERESTS AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE LIVING AND BREATHING AROUND US (1 Corinthians 10:23-24 Voice) ‎.

Beloved, recently I was having a discussion with someone about some of the things we do that though there may not necessarily be anything wrong with it, but we have got to realise that people everywhere are watching and when they see you doing certain things, they are like “oh so I’m allowed to do that”. However, when they then try to do it, because they are either not strong in their faith or in their discipline, they fall.

In our feature text, Apostle Paul says… ALL THINGS ARE PERMITTED,” THEY SAY. YES, BUT NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY. WE SHOULD STOP LOOKING OUT FOR OUR OWN INTERESTS AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE LIVING AND BREATHING AROUND US

Beloved, according to my Bible notes, “Paul’s instruction on this matter is clear: believers should give up their rights and freedoms for the sake of others. This is the essence of sacrifice. This is what Jesus did. This is what Paul does. Otherwise, community becomes impossible. But no state or church authority should force compliance; it must arise from A HEART OF LOVE AND A DISPOSITION THAT PUTS THE NEEDS OF OTHERS FIRST”. ‎

…A HEART OF LOVE AND A DISPOSITION THAT PUTS THE NEEDS OF OTHERS FIRST…

Here, Apostle Paul is talking about living selflessly with others. It should never be a case of Me… myself and I…

Beloved, when we use the phrase ‘die to self’, do we know what it entails? Are you one of those people that would use all your time and energy just to prove the point that what you are doing is right; that there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing? As you mature spiritually, you ought to know that there’s a lot more responsibility placed on you. Like Jesus said… everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more (Luke 12:48 AMP)

Apostle Paul went on to say…Consider my example: I strive to please all people in all my actions and words—but don’t think I am in this for myself—THEIR RESCUED SOULS ARE THE ONLY PROFIT (1 Corinthians 10:33 Voice)

…THEIR RESCUED SOULS ARE THE ONLY PROFIT…
Beloved, we are told that… he who is wise captures and wins souls [for God—he gathers them for eternity] (Proverbs 11:30 AMP).

He gathers them for eternity not scatters them. So, the question today is; how wise are you? Remember… NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY.
