Now Eliab his oldest brother heard what he said to the men; and Eliab’s anger burned against David and he said, “Why have you come down here? With whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your presumption (overconfidence) and the evil of your heart; for you have come down in order to see the battle (1 Samuel 17:28 AMP).

Beloved, David was a man that faced so much discouragement and intimidation. He even faced it from his own brother. As he enquired about the fight with Goliath, we are told in our feature text that his very own brother tried to belittle him.

WITH WHOM DID YOU LEAVE THOSE FEW SHEEP IN THE WILDERNESS?

Beloved, do you know anyone who does their best to put you down at any opportunity they get? Why did Eliab have to use the word ‘FEW SHEEP’? Well, let’s remember Eliab was there when David was anointed king. He was there when Samuel bypassed all the brothers and waited for their dad to go and call David from attending to the said ‘FEW’ sheep he was looking after in the fields (1 Samuel 16:10-12). Eliab was rejected by God so I bet out of jealousy, he wanted to make David feel like he didn’t have what it takes but how did David respond? …. But David said, “What have I done now? Was it not just a [harmless] question?” Then David turned away from Eliab to someone else and asked the same question; and the people gave him the same answer as the first time (1 Samuel 17:29-30 AMP)

David basically ignored him but many of us would either get discouraged or try to go over our credentials to prove ourselves but all that’s just a distraction.

And then there was Saul… “Don’t worry about this Philistine,” David told Saul. “I’ll go fight him!” “DON’T BE RIDICULOUS!” Saul replied. “There’s no way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win! You’re only a boy, and he’s been a man of war since his youth.” (1 Samuel 17:32-33 NLT)

I like how the not so popular Voice translation put it. Saul said… Don’t be ridiculous—you can’t fight the Philistine. You’re only a youth, and he has been a warrior since his childhood. YOU LACK AGE AND EXPERIENCE.

Beloved, David faced discouragement on all levels. The people that were supposed to be closed to him tried to belittle him but his ability to ignore them all got him to his destination. Please know that the enemy is always going to use this to try to discourage you but it’s just so he can hinder you but like David, you must ignore and keep moving forward. Remember, God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin… (Zechariah 4:10 NLT)

At about this time, the Ammonites began their war against Israel. When the Ammonites attacked, the elders of Gilead sent for Jephthah in the land of Tob. The elders said, “Come and be our commander! Help us fight the Ammonites!” But Jephthah said to them, “Aren’t you the ones who hated me and drove me from my father’s house? Why do you come to me now when you’re in trouble?” “Because we need you,” the elders replied. “If you lead us in battle against the Ammonites, we will make you ruler over all the people of Gilead.” (Judges 11:4-8 NLT).

Beloved, do you know that the same people that reject you are the same people that may come looking for you when it’s the Lord’s appointed time? The Bible is full of stories where people were rejected by men but appointed by the Lord. There’s the story of Joseph and then Jephthah.

So, what’s Jephthah’s story… Now Jephthah of Gilead was a great warrior. He was the son of Gilead, BUT his mother was a prostitute. Gilead’s wife also had several sons, and when these half brothers grew up, they chased Jephthah off the land. “You will not get any of our father’s inheritance,” they said, “for you are the son of a prostitute.” (Judges 11:1-2 NLT).

… Gilead was a great warrior…BUT his mother was a prostitute ‎…

Beloved, there’s always a BUT in many of our stories which means the story doesn’t end there and like it is often said… don’t allow your background put your back to the ground. It doesn’t matter how you came into this world. The fact that you made it means that God has a purpose for you. The Lord told the prophet Jeremiah…‎ “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 NLT).

… I set you apart…

This usually translates to mean being rejected by people because you don’t fit into the norm. ‎ People would label you because you don’t fit what they call normal but it doesn’t matter who rejects you. As far as you were a born leader, you will thrive anywhere and at times the isolation is your training ground and it proves you can be faithful with the little. Like the Bible says… Do not despise these small beginnings…(Zechariah ‪4:10‬ NLT) and like Jesus also said… ‎ If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities (Luke ‪16:10‬ NLT).‬‬

Beloved, even Jesus was rejected… He came to His own people, and even they rejected Him (John1:11 NLT) and it took Him dying on the cross to be recognised as the Son of God (Matthew 27:54)‎

‎Beloved are you feeling rejected at the moment? It took the same people that rejected Jephthah to go in search of him when his skill was desperately needed. Perhaps ‎if he was accepted right from the beginning, he wouldn’t be available for this appointment.

SELAH!

Then He spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing! (John 9:6-7 NLT)

Beloved, during my morning devotion, I was meditating on the chapter from which our feature text is extracted and a lot of things caught my attention about this ‘sent one’ which I believe is relevant to the move of God in this season. I almost named this post ‘The characteristics or confrontations of a ‘Sent one’ but settled for ‘WHEN THE EYES OF A SENT ONE IS OPEN’.

The first confrontation you would face is the religious system. After this man received his sight, we are told that… Then they took the man who had been blind to the Pharisees, because it was on the Sabbath that Jesus had made the mud and healed him… Some of the Pharisees said, “This man Jesus is not from God, for He is working on the Sabbath…” (John 9:13-16 NLT).

So, he was immediately confronted by the religious system which keeps people blind and bound and when I initially read it, I didn’t notice that he was taken to the Pharisees but I find it intriguing how the Lord would place you in situations that would make you confront the religious system that has held you bound all your life and it requires a certain level of boldness to speak up which we see this man displayed.

When questioned about Jesus, he wasn’t afraid to speak up… “I don’t know whether He is a sinner,” the man replied. “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!… He healed my eyes, and yet you don’t know where He comes from? We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, BUT HE IS READY TO HEAR THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM AND DO HIS WILL. Ever since the world began, no one has been able to open the eyes of someone born blind. If this man were not from God, He couldn’t have done it.” (John 9:25-33 NLT)

Beloved, he was up against the religious system his parents raised him in – one they themselves couldn’t confront because of fear that they would be thrown out of the synagogue (John 9:22) but because he was bold enough to confront this system, he got kicked out (John 9:34).

Unfortunately, this is what may eventually happen when the eyes of a ‘sent one’ is opened. They get kicked out of the church they were raised in or the church frustrates them until they have no choice but to leave. However, that’s fine because a true encounter with Jesus Christ is around the corner… When Jesus heard what had happened, he found the man and asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” The man answered, “Who is he, sir? I want to believe in him.” “You have seen him,” Jesus said, “and he is speaking to you!” “Yes, Lord, I believe!” the man said and he worshiped Jesus. (John 9:35-38 NLT)

Beloved, are you a ‘sent one’? SELAH!

Now from the sixth hour (noon) there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour (three o’clock). And about the ninth hour (three o’clock) Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?—that is, My God, My God, why have You abandoned Me [leaving Me [helpless, forsaking and failing Me in My need]? (Matthew 27:45-46 AMPC)

Beloved, is this how you feel? Well, you won’t be the first? I always say if Jesus who knew the beginning from the end could crack under such pressure, then who am I? But that is why… we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet He did not sin. (Hebrews 4:15-15 NIV). Carrying the heavy burden of our sins on His shoulders and with the intense pain that He was feeling, it became too much for Jesus and with no help in sight, He cried out in despair…My God, My God, why have You abandoned Me.

However, the good news is that we know for a fact that God had not abandoned Him and neither has He abandoned or forsaken you but whats interesting here is that there are things that we may just have to go through to prove to the doubters that… “surely He was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54 NIV)

I love the verse that says …DAVID ENCOURAGED HIMSELF IN THE LORD HIS GOD (1 Samuel 30:6 KJV). When it seems like there is darkness everywhere and His face cannot be found, this is what king David would have to say… Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me (Psalm 23:4 AMP).

Beloved, please know today that… The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18 NIV). He has not forsaken you so… Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God (Psalm 42:11 NIV). Go on… ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN THE LORD YOUR GOD.

On this worship sunday, spend the whole of today and the new week praising and worshiping the Lord and watch how your spirit lifts up… watch the darkness give way to light.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name

When Isaac grew up and was about to be weaned, Abraham prepared a huge feast to celebrate the occasion. But Sarah saw Ishmael—the son of Abraham and her Egyptian servant Hagar—making fun of her son, Isaac. So she turned to Abraham and demanded, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son. He is not going to share the inheritance with my son, Isaac. I won’t have it!” This upset Abraham very much because Ishmael was his son. But God told Abraham, “Do not be upset over the boy and your servant. Do whatever Sarah tells you, for Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted (Genesis 21:8-12 NLT).

What is God up to?

Beloved, I am one of those people that has been trained by the Lord to always look for His hand in every situation no matter how bad it is because that way you can never miss out on what God is up to. Now, in our feature text, we read about Sarah telling Abraham to…get rid of that slave woman and her son. However, Abraham isn’t happy about it. He was upset but then God stepped in and… told Abraham, “Do not be upset over the boy and your servant. Do whatever Sarah tells you.

Beloved, to Abraham it may have looked like it was the devil coming to scatter his home but to God, it was something different. Listen to your wife! The Amplified Bible translation says… whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her and do what she asks.

I beg your pardon. That must be the devil speaking Abraham must have thought but not according to our key scripture. It was God and how you know it is God is that God also had plans for Hagar’s son. He told Abraham… I will also make a nation of the descendants of Hagar’s son because he is your son, too.” (Genesis 21:13 NLT)

Beloved, the Lord also had plans for the boy and when he was in need… God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, “Hagar, what’s wrong? Do not be afraid! God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Go to him and comfort him, for I will make a great nation from his descendants.” Then God opened Hagar’s eyes, and she saw a well full of water. She quickly filled her water container and gave the boy a drink (Genesis 21:17-19 NLT).

Beloved, there are some situations we find ourselves in that we may think it’s the devil bringing about this commotion but like someone once said; the devil is God’s devil. God can use him to bring about His will so even when it doesn’t make sense, you must understand that… God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them (Romans 8:28 NLT).

Listen… Hear what the Lord is saying…

As Jesus and his disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to the towns of Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives. Jesus sent two of them on ahead. “Go into that village over there,” he told them. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a young DONKEY TIED there that NO ONE HAS EVER RIDDEN. UNTIE IT AND BRING IT HERE. If anyone asks, ‘What are you doing?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it and will return it soon.’” (Mark 11:1-3 NLT)

Beloved, there are some people who feel like their lives are like this poor donkey; tied up, feeling ignored as it stays there and watches other donkey’s been ridden by. They go out and come back to meet it in the same spot. Even when it tries to move, it can only go so far because it is restricted by the rope tied around its neck. There may have been feelings of frustration, loneliness, abandonment and rejection. That’s the bad news but the good news is that Jesus did not reject it. He had a plan for it. He knew exactly where it was. He knew it was tied down and apparently what may have seemed like abandonment and rejection to the donkey, Jesus saw as being reserved for a great purpose.

The donkey was reserved for a purpose and that was to usher Jesus into town where He would catch people’s attention; People who would turn around, stop what they are doing and praise Him and when it was time, Jesus served notice… UNTIE IT AND BRING IT HERE and they had no choice but to let it go… As they were untying it, some bystanders demanded, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” They said what Jesus had told them to say, and they were permitted to take it. (Mark 11:5-6 NLT)

No arguments… No fights… No questions asked. I like how the Message translation puts Luke’s version of this story… As they were untying the colt, ITS OWNERS SAID, “What are you doing untying the colt?” They said, “HIS MASTER NEEDS HIM” (Luke 19:31-34).

Beloved, I don’t know who or whatever thinks they own you… addiction… sin… bondage… whatever… Please know that once born again, you only have one Master and that is Jesus Christ. The enemy may think they’ve got you tied down but your Master has need for you and as He places a demand on your life, whatever or whoever has tied you down has no choice but to untie you and let you go.

Why not begin to speak to every situation that as held you bound; Untie me because the Lord has need for me’

…The Eternal passed by him. The mighty wind separated the mountains and crumbled every stone before the Eternal. This was not a divine wind, for the Eternal was not within this wind. After the wind passed through, an earthquake shook the earth. This was not a divine quake, for the Eternal was not within this earthquake. After the earthquake was over, there was a fire. This was not a divine fire, for the Eternal was not within this fire. After the fire died out, there was nothing but the sound of a calm breeze. And through this breeze a gentle, quiet voice entered into Elijah’s ears… (1 Kings 19:11-12 VOICE)

Beloved, have the Lord ever spoken to you and immediately you get the impression that He is so angry with you? Or have you ever received a prophesy from someone and it sounded like the Lord is so mad at you? You then feel depressed. Well, recently, I was listening to someone ask his church to pray for Him. He had just returned from ministration and was complaining that the weather was so hot that it really got to him. He ended up rebuking people as he was prophesying… “the Lord rebuke you for this… That’s just nasty” but later he started asking himself “what’s wrong with me?” LOL… He just wasn’t in the mood and so He wasn’t giving himself time to process what the Lord was saying.

I also remember listening to his wife whose only request from God was that she marries a prophet who heard accurately from Him. However, after she had confirmed that her husband heard clearly from God, her next move was to check what was going on in his soul. Is he suffering from rejection, abandonment, self-condemnation, self-accusation etc.

Why? According to her, a person who hears from God has to channel what they hear through their soul and if they are not fully whole, what they hear tends to be filtered through‎ the fractions of the wounds that they carry.

For example, if you grew up hearing a father or mother’s tone of voice that was always harsh, you end up not knowing what communication looks like you so you deliver God’s word as harsh because the way parents speak to their children shapes the child.

Also, if you’ve suffered from rejection, abandonment, self-condemnation, self-accusation etc., you ought to make sure that your processing system does not poison the word you hear. Like in our feature text, God’s voice was not heard in the storms, earthquakes or fires of life but in a still small voice and so the word that you hear should not be filtered in a toxic environment.

Beloved, I’ve been taking time to just study the different ways people prophecy and have observed that there’s a huge difference with a mouthpiece that’s whole from those that are still broken. I’m also taking time to study how I channel God’s voice. Why am I interpreting it this way? Even if He rebukes, He does it with love but when only a harsh tone is all you know, that’s how you hear Him.

Beloved, how are you hearing from God?

06. May 2016 · Comments Off on HOW’S YOUR OUTLOOK TO LIFE? · Categories: Healing, Jesus Christ, Light, Mind, Rejection, Relationship, Thoughts

Listen, your eye, your outlook, the way you see is your lamp. If your way of seeing is functioning well, then your whole life will be enlightened. But if your way of seeing is darkened, then your life will be a dark, dark place. So be careful, people, because your light may be malfunctioning. IF YOUR OUTLOOK IS GOOD, THEN YOUR WHOLE LIFE WILL BE BRIGHT, with no shadowy corners, as when a radiant lamp brightens your home (Luke 11:34-36 VOICE).

Beloved, how’s your outlook to life? Has your experience caused you never to see anything positive‎? Are you one that because of your experience always read meaning into everything people say? Are you one that because life has cause you to swallow a bitter pill, you now have no room for mercy? Whenever anyone crosses your path and they do anything to offend you, you immediately think of how to pay back and as a result people don’t want to be around you.

We all have filters through which we view life. If you are one that has suffered rejection, then there’s every possibility that you will interpret everybody’s action as an act of rejection. For example, if someone walks pass you and does not say good morning or good day. Now, there could be a number of reasons for this. There’s the possibility that they had a lot on their mind and so were lost in their thoughts and then there’s the possibility that they just didn’t see you. However, because of your rejection issues, you just conclude that they refused to say hello. Heaven help them if they cross to the other side of the road before they get to you. You immediately interpret that to mean that they are avoiding you and as far as you continue to interpret people’s actions this way, you remain a victim of your own malfunction because this isn’t what someone really did to you. It’s just how you have chosen to interpret their actions and like Jesus said… if your way of seeing is darkened, then your life will be a dark, dark place.

You are advised to… watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life (Proverbs 4:23 AMP). This means monitoring the things that you allow go in and go out of your heart. This includes the things you see and hear.

It also includes your thoughts and like a plane that is about to land, you are in a position to prevent certain thoughts from landing because if they do and you meditate on them, before you know it, your life becomes a bitter, dark mess because… as a man thinks so is he (Proverbs 23:7). But God’s word says you should… fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8-9 VOICE) and… be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind… (Romans 12:2 VOICE).

Shalom!

When the Ammonites attacked Israel, the leaders of Gilead asked Jephthah to return from Tob to be their commander and lead them against the Ammonite invaders.  Jephthah replied. Ha! Aren’t you the same people who hated me so much that you drove me from my father’s house? And you come to me now and ask me for help? The leaders responded to Jephthah: You’re right. All the same we need your help. Come lead us against the Ammonites, and we will make you leader over us and all who live in Gilead (Judges 11:4-8 VOICE).

Beloved, do you know that the same people that reject you are the same people that may come looking for you when it’s the Lord’s appointed time? The Bible is full of stories where people were rejected by men but appointed by the Lord. There’s the story of Joseph and then Jephthah.

So, what’s Jephthah’s story… Jephthah… was the son of a prostitute BUT a mighty warrior. His father was Gilead, but Gilead’s wife bore other sons who grew up and drove Jephthah away because they did not want the son of another woman other than Gilead’s wife to inherit anything from their father (Judges 11:1-2 VOICE).

…son of a prostitute BUT a mighty warrior‎…

Beloved, there’s always a BUT in many of our stories which means the story doesn’t end there and like it is often said… don’t allow your background put your back to the ground. It doesn’t matter how you came into this world. The fact that you made it means that God has a purpose for you. The Lord told the prophet Jeremiah…‎ Before I even formed you in your mother’s womb, I knew all about you. Before you drew your first breath, I had already chosen you to be My prophet to speak My word to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5 VOICE).

Other translation say… I set you apart… and this usually translates to mean being rejected by people because you don’t fit into the norm. ‎ People would label you because you don’t fit what they call normal but it doesn’t matter who rejects you. As far as you were a born leader, you will thrive anywhere and at times the isolation is your training ground and it proves you can be faithful with the little.

If you’re crooked in small responsibilities, you’ll be no different in bigger things. (Luke ‪16:10‬ VOICE).‬‬

Beloved, even Jesus was rejected… He came to His own people, and even they rejected Him (John1:11 NLT) and it took Him dying on the cross to be recognised as the Son of God (Matthew 27:54)‎

‎ Beloved are you feeling rejected at the moment? It took the same people that rejected Jephthah to go in search of him when his skill was desperately needed. Perhaps ‎if he was accepted right from the beginning, he wouldn’t be available for this appointment.

16. April 2016 · Comments Off on DOES ACHIEVING RESULTS EQUATE TO OBEDIENCE? · Categories: God's Plan, Obedience, Rejection

…Moses raised his hand and hit the rock—once, twice—and immediately the water came gushing out. All drank their fill, people and animals alike. But the Eternal One scolded Moses and Aaron for their actions. Because you didn’t trust Me and treat Me as holy before the Israelites, you will not lead this group into the land I have given them. (Numbers 20:11-12 VOICE)

Beloved, I’m one of those people that’s so determined to do the Lord’s will. Perhaps, I’m like the Psalmist who said… It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes (Psalm 119:71 AMP). Like they say “experience is the best teacher” LOL.

So, as I read our feature text, I’m thinking here’s a situation where the people wanted water and water is what they got, and they all drank to their full. To Moses, he had achieved results based on what was needed by the people‎. They may have thanked him, patted him on the back saying “good job man. The Lord reward you for your effort”.

However, before the Lord, it was a different case. The Lord was actually displeased with Moses because His instruction was… You and Aaron grab the staff before the covenant chest, gather the whole group so that all the people can see and hear you, and speak to the rock. Tell it to release its water for them to use. In this way, you’ll get water from the rock for everyone to drink… (Numbers 20:8 VOICE).

“Speak to the rock” not “hit the rock”… Both actions would have achieved the same results but achieving results does not equate to obedience and though he acted out of anger, when it boils down to it, we tend to find this in cases where we are trying to please man instead of pleasing God and I can remember someone saying that Yes, God loves us all because God is love but that doesn’t mean He is pleased with everyone.

When it comes to pleasing man, Apostle Paul said… Do you think I care about the approval of men or about the approval of God? Do you think I am on a mission to please people? If I am still spinning my wheels trying to please men, then there is no way I can be a servant of the Anointed One… (Galatians 1:10 VOICE).

Hmmm… The Lord told Moses… You will not set foot in the promised land, even after all you’ve done for Me and this people because you didn’t follow My instructions back in the Zin Wilderness when the people argued and rebelled. You failed to treat me as holy at the waters before the eyes of the people… (Numbers 27:14 VOICE).

That must have been really painful but we are to learn from Moses experience so that even when we achieve result, we run it by the Lord… “I know the people got what they wanted but is this what You asked of me?”
