Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin… (Zechariah 4.10 NLT)

Beloved, do you know that the very thing that we tend to despise and get so frustrated about is the very thing that the Lord rejoices to see? He loves to see our attitude and how we appreciate what He’s started in our lives but we are always in such a hurry and at times we’ve got to stop and think… is this about God or is it about me? If it’s about God then, why don’t we move at His pace? Surely, the Lord knows we would face obstacles but He says don’t worry about that… “Zerubbabel is the one who laid the foundation of this Temple, and he will complete it… ‎(Zechariah 4.9 NLT)‎

So why does the Lord rejoice over our small beginnings? That’s where a solid foundation that would sustain us is built. That’s when He instils His godly values in us that’s if we give Him the chance to do so‎. At every step of the ways, I’ve come to realise that the Lord’s process is a much-needed process and I now tend to agree with Him that yes… this area and this area and that area needs to be worked on so please don’t give it to me yet because I agree that I’m not ready or fully mature to handle it.

Beloved, you have got to go through the maturing stage and when you’ve been faithful with little that’s when you would hear the Lord say… ‎” ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’‎ (Mathew 25:23 NLT)

The Lord isn’t against your enlargement. He definitely…. bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless (Psalms 84:11 NIV). ‎However, this is the problem… when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful! Do not become proud at that time and forget the Lord your God… never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful… (Deuteronomy 8.12-18 NLT).

Beloved, this is the reason why He sometimes takes us through a process of breaking so we aren’t carried away and so we become humble enough to know that if not for You Lord, I would be nothing.

Are you getting frustrated about your small beginnings? Perhaps you need to start to look at it from the Lord’s point of view and stop depriving Him of what He rejoices over… He has made everything beautiful in its time (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV).

02. September 2017 · Comments Off on GOD IS NOT UNJUST · Categories: Jesus Christ, Obedience, Perseverance, Promise, Sacrifice

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 (Hebrews 6: 10 NLT).

Beloved, only yesterday, someone told me that they won a HUGE sum of money and I was almost tempted to say, Lord, WHAT ABOUT ME? I’ve been labouring and praying and fasting for a sudden supernatural supply. However, I remembered the message of yesterday titled ‘WHAT ABOUT ME?’ and couldn’t help but think God You are so funny. You sure prepared me for this one.

Beloved, have you ever felt God was unfair? You’ve been waiting on His promises. You’ve been faithful and have done everything He asked you to do but nothing and it just seems like He bypasses you. So, now you are like… well… whatever… Your heart has become sick (Proverbs 13:12). Is that you? Please don’t let your spirit be down. Keep doing what you know to do. God’s promise still stands. Our feature text lets us know GOD IS NOT UNJUST. The Chapter goes on to talk about God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in His own name, saying: “I will certainly bless you….” (Hebrews 6: 13-14 NLT)

Can you imagine God saying: “I swear by My Almighty self that…”?

Beloved, God’s word is enough to assure us that He will fulfil His promises and we are meant to take Him by His word. But then, He takes it a step further… God also bound Himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be PERFECTLY SURE THAT HE WOULD NEVER CHANGE HIS MIND. So God has given both HIS PROMISE AND HIS OATH. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a STRONG AND TRUSTWORTHY ANCHOR for our souls… (Hebrews 6:17-19 NLT)

Isn’t that reassuring? However, I must stress that our continued OBEDIENCE and SACRIFICE is important. God swore to Abraham after Abraham obeyed His command to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. We must be willing to and keep doing what God tells us to do regardless of how hard it may seem. The other thing is to be PATIENT… Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised (Hebrews 6:15).

Beloved, an anchor is a strong device that is used to connect a boat to the bed of a body of water to prevent it from drifting or moving due to wind or current. This is to say that you should hang on firmly to what God has promised. He will fulfil it… For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] “Yes.” So through Him we say our “Amen” to the glory of God (2 Corinthians 1:20 AMP). Can I hear an amen?

15. July 2017 · Comments Off on PERSEVERING THE SILENT TREATMENT · Categories: Grace, Jesus Christ, Mercy, Patience, Perseverance, Waiting, Worship

And behold, a woman who was a Canaanite from that district came out and, with a [loud, troublesomely urgent] cry, begged, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably and distressingly and cruelly possessed by a demon! BUT HE DID NOT ANSWER HER A WORD. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, send her away, for she is crying out after us (Matthew 15:22-23 AMPC).

Beloved, have you ever been in a situation where you desperately need the Lord’s intervention and it seems like He is giving you the silent treatment? Does it mean He doesn’t want you to bother Him and hopes that somehow you would eventually get the memo? I don’t think so, but what do you do when you cry out to Jesus and get no response? This woman was in a desperate situation and begged Jesus to help but He ignored her. But did she give up? No! She pumped up the volume until she became a nuisance to His disciples.

That’s the kind of prayer that would make people not want to sit next to you in church because they know you would disturb their comfort. A pastor once said she was in her office one day and disturbed from the noise coming from a lady outside her door, had to ask someone to see if she was alright. She was alright. Just desperately in need of an intervention. This was the Canaanite woman’s case. But that still didn’t do it. Jesus basically said that as an outsider, she wasn’t on His agenda. However, she still didn’t give up. What did she do?… Then she came and WORSHIPED HIM, saying, “Lord, help me!” (Matthew 15:25 NKJV)

Beloved, she WORSHIPED HIM. When you’ve done everything you know to do. Don’t give up. Just WORSHIP HIM. I’ve been told that’s one of the greatest gifts and weapons I’ve got. I really didn’t understand it then but it took the silent years of the Lord to bring the worshipper out of me.

Next, Jesus taught a lesson in humility. Jesus said… “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” (Matthew 15:26 NKJV). A proud person would say “please don’t insult me because I’m begging you for help”. But not this woman. She knew Jesus was her only solution so she humbled herself and she continued to appeal to his mercy and grace (unmerited favour)… And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! LET IT BE TO YOU AS YOU DESIRE.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour (Matthew 15:27-28 NKJV).

Beloved, what did it. WORSHIP… HUMILITY… APPEALING TO HIS GRACE AND MERCY… kept her faith going and brought about her desire. Why not try it and see where it lands you instead of getting frustrated or giving up.

07. July 2017 · Comments Off on DON’T FAIL UNDER PRESSURE · Categories: Decision making, Jesus Christ, Patience, Perseverance, Trusting God

If you fail under pressure, your strength is too small (Proverbs 24:10 NLT).

Beloved, our feature text is one of those texts that challengeus and when you start to read stories like that of Apostle Paul, you are bound to ask yourself; what have I really been through? There are many people that are considering quitting just because of the trials they’ve had to face, however, can you compare what you’ve been through to that of Apostle Paul?

Apostle Paul said …I have worked harder, been put in prison more often, been whipped times without number, and faced death again and again. Five different times the Jewish leaders gave me thirty-nine lashes. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked. Once I spent a whole night and a day adrift at sea. I have traveled on many long journeys. I have faced danger from rivers and from robbers. I have faced danger from my own people, the Jews, as well as from the Gentiles. I have faced danger in the cities, in the deserts, and on the seas. And I have faced danger from men who claim to be believers but are not. I have worked hard and long, enduring many sleepless nights. I have been hungry and thirsty and have often gone without food. I have shivered in the cold, without enough clothing to keep me warm. Then, besides all this, I have the daily burden of my concern for all the churches. Who is weak without my feeling that weakness? Who is led astray, and I do not burn with anger? (2 Corinthians 11:23-29 NLT).

Beloved, with all these trials, we aren’t told that it ever came across the mind of Apostle Paul to quit and say “Lord’ I’ve had enough”. Rather, he kept pushing through and according to one of my Bible notes… “Sincerity is a difficult thing to judge. THE COMMITMENT THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO A CAUSE CAN ONLY BE DETERMINED OVER TIME. One test might be: do they persevere through hardships and challenges? In this regard, Paul is without equal. If the cause of Jesus were a fleeting interest or a halfhearted pursuit, then he would have given up after his first beating. But Paul’s compassion for those who did not know the beauty of the gospel was stubborn and unyielding. This persecutor-turned-emissary always had his critics. But who could call him insincere?”

Beloved, Apostle Paul endured till the end and his final testimony was… I have fought the good fight, I have stayed on course and finished the race, and through it all, I HAVE KEPT BELIEVING. I look forward to what’s in store for me: a crown of righteousness that the Lord—the always right and just judge—will give me that day (but it is not only for me, but for all those who love and long for His appearing) (2 Timothy 4:7-8 Voice).

I HAVE KEPT BELIEVING…

Beloved, what have you gone through that might make you want to give up? And then, give up to do what?

05. June 2017 · Comments Off on IT’S NOT THE TIME TO GIVE IN · Categories: Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Suffering, Trusting God

What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]… Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us (Romans 8:31, 37 AMPC).

Beloved, I remember the time armed robbers attacked our family home in Africa many years ago, and out of fear, my nephew who was only a child at the time ran and hid himself in the kitchen. However, the armed robbers soon made their way into the kitchen but before they could even locate where he was hiding (not that they were even looking for him), fearing that he would be in worse trouble if they found him first, he cried out… “SEE ME HERE”. ‎As if to say, if I surrender myself, my punishment won’t be as bad.

SEE ME HERE…

Unfortunately, that’s the attitude many Christians have adopted. When the enemy comes LIKE a roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8), out of fear… we say ‘SEE ME HERE’. However, we forget that the text says ‘like a roaring lion’ and not that he is a ‘roaring lion’. We also tend to forget that we… have overcome… because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4 NKJV).

King David said… He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [WHOSE POWER NO FOE CAN WITHSTAND] (Psalm 91:1 AMPC). However, many times, we choose to come out of our hiding place and say “SEE ME HERE”.

The word of God tells us… No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV).

The Lord would always make a way out of every temptation but we are too quick to give in and say “SEE ME HERE”. As a result, we are quick to give in to temptation… sin… frustration… fear and every weak emotion you can think of.

Beloved, this is not the time to give in. Rather, you are to… be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil (Ephesians 6:10-11 NLT).

You may be in a battle right now but remember that you are fighting from a place of victory. The battle has already been won. This current fight is a fight for your faith so don’t you dare give in. Remain under the shelter of the Lord Almighty… then after the battle you will still be standing firm (Ephesians 6:13 NLT).

Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped. And the man of God was angry with him, and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.” (II Kings 13:18‭-‬19 NKJV)

Beloved, I am currently reading a book by Apostle John Eckhardt on Fasting for Breakthrough and Deliverance where he refers to our feature text. He says “Elisha told Joash that he must strike against Syria over and over again until they had been destroyed. Then Elisha told him to take a bow and arrows and strike it on the ground. He didn’t tell him how many times. Joash hit it on the ground three times and stopped. The prophet was very angry because it meant Joash would only defeat the Syrians three times. Three times was not enough to destroy the Syrians as Elisha had prophesied. Perhaps Elisha could have told him how many times to strike the arrows on the ground. But sometimes what is in a person comes out in their actions. Joash didn’t have enough hatred and anger for the enemy to strike the ground beyond the third time-or until the arrow broke!”

Beloved, this left me thinking? How much do you hate the devil? How much do you want to see yourself delivered in whatever area?

I started thinking of the time Jesus’ disciples could not cast out a demon from a little boy and Jesus had to come to their rescue. Later… His disciples asked Him privately, why could not we drive it out? And He replied to them, THIS KIND cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting (Mark 9:28-29 AMPC).

So, if Jesus says…. this kind can only go away through prayer and fasting, do you love your food more than you love your freedom?

Apostle John Eckhardt went on to say “when you are dealing with the enemy, you need to give him more than just a courtesy tap. You need to really want to win. You have to hate what you are fighting so much that you beat it until the arrows break. You must hate lust, poverty, fear, rejection, or whatever it is until you smash it. It’s not just one, two, three, and then look at the prophet and ask, “Did I do good?” Strike it until it is destroyed”.

Hmmm… it’s not just fasting till 12 noon and then say, “did I do good?” It’s not just praying for 30 minutes to one hour and then say, “did I do good?” No, you are to keep praying and fasting or doing whatever it takes until something happens.

Beloved, how desperate are you? How much do you hate that situation you are in? Have you got that much holy anger in you that you want to keep striking until that situation is completely destroyed?

SELAH!

26. March 2017 · Comments Off on THE PREVAILING MOTHER · Categories: favor, God's Plan, Help, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Relationship, Restoration, Thanks giving

And Adam knew Eve as his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain; and she said, I have gotten and gained a man WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD. And [next] she gave birth to his brother Abel… (Genesis 4:1-2 AMPC).

Beloved, Happy mother’s day to all you wonderful mothers and mothers to be out there. I have great news for you… NOTHING CAN STOP YOU! I was just reflecting on all the agony Eve had to go through. From her very first appearance on the scene of this earth, the devil was after her. Yes, she fell. Yes her actions had consequences but no matter how she struggled… No matter what life brought her way, she PREVAILED. She had to go through hard labour but WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Because of the enmity between the offspring of satan and her offspring (Genesis 3:15), there was war in her household and even after she lost both sons, her story did not end there, she… again became pregnant, and she bore a son and called his name Seth. For God, she said, has appointed for me another child…(Genesis 4:25 AMPC)… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Beloved, since that time, women struggled with all sorts of issues. Barrenness was top on the list but when the world thought it was all over for Sarah, Rachael, Rebecca, Hannah, Elizabeth and the like, the Lord changed their stories… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… they PREVAILED…

And then the angel of the Lord appeared to one very special woman… And he came to her and said, Hail, O favored one [endued with grace]! The Lord is with you! Blessed (favored of God) are you before all other women!…And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace (free, spontaneous, absolute favor and loving-kindness) with God. And listen! You will become pregnant and will give birth to a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus (Luke 1:28-31 AMPC).

The enemy fought that Son… He was crucified. Mary probably thought she had lost Him forever but He resurrected… He ascended in to Heaven and… On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place…. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them (Acts 2:1,3 NLT). That was the Holy Spirit coming to dwell inside of them. Mary, the mother of Jesus was there (Acts 1:14). She felt her Son inside her once again… She was a favored one… WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD… she PREVAILED…

Beloved, such would be your case… you would keep on PREVAILING. On this special mother’s day, you blessed woman, favored of God, may you receive a special visitation from the Lord. May you receive gifts that you know… THIS CAN ONLY BE GOD.

04. December 2016 · Comments Off on ‏‏KEEP GOING THROUGH · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Patience, Perseverance, Trusting God

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in (Galatians 6:9 AMP).

Beloved, a few months ago, I read the following message on a friends Facebook wall which said “I’ve been nominated for an award. I’m shocked. Best Actress nomination for 2016, Awesome God”. I read it and couldn’t help but leave the following comment. I said… “Congrats… I remember reading your post a while back about not getting jobs. You were so frustrated then but you didn’t give up. Just goes to show what happens when we don’t give up…”

Can you imagine what would have happened to her if she gave up out of frustration? After reading what she said I just had to copy it and save it somewhere because I knew the Lord would remind me of it and He sure did. Perhaps, someone needs to hear it right now.

I was reminded of it as I was listening to someone talk about Cathy Hughes, an African-American entrepreneur, radio and television personality and business executive who founded the media company Radio One. I heard that about 34 banks turned her down before one told her yes. The person telling the story said “I’m not interested in the one that said yes. I am interested in the fight that was in her for the first 34. Are you tough enough to be a winner or can I discourage you and make you give up your dream?”

Beloved, she didn’t allow the number of ‘NO’s’ she received stop her. You just know that someone is tenacious when they keep going after that many rejections. It reminds me of what someone that runs a prayer line always says after every prayer session. You would always hear them say; “Remember, whatever you are going through, keep going through”. In other words, no matter how hard it may be, as far as you are taking steps, then you are moving forward. However, there’s no progress in throwing in the towel. That’s giving up. Its quitting. It reminds me of when Job said… Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him… (Job 13:15 NKJV). He basically said “I may not understand what God is up to right now but I won’t give up hope. I would keep trusting Him”.

Another person said, “don’t let what you are going through keep you from what you are going to.” yes, you may be going through something right now but don’t let whatever it is keep you from what you are going to.

The Voice translation of our feature text says… May we never tire of doing what is good and right before our Lord because in His season we shall bring in a great harvest if we can just persist.

Beloved, “don’t let what you are going through keep you from what you are going to”. This Actress didn’t give up. Cathy Hughes didn’t give up. Job didn’t and you shouldn’t either. Remember, whatever you are going through, keep going through

16. November 2016 · Comments Off on THE PATH TO INCREASE · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Restoration, Suffering, Trusting God

I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest (John 12:24 AMP).

Beloved, this year has been one of those years where I’ve had to watch people from near and afar go through a process of great testing of their faith; I mean, people going through the kind of trial that would really test your faith and make you want to give up but I remember telling someone that when God is ready to take you to the next level, you experience a kind of breaking that you never thought was possible. You may have thought that you’ve mastered everything there is to master about our faith but the Lord would then show you that there’s more.

When we think about faith, Abraham is one person that comes to mind. Abraham’s first level of testing of his faith was to wait for very many years for his promised son but when he eventually had the son and thought it was all over, the Lord tested him again by asking him to give up that son he loved so much and I like the way the Bible says… SOMETIME LATER God tested Abraham… (Genesis 22:1) but it was after that test that the Lord swore and said… I WILL SURELY BLESS you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore… (Genesis 22:17 NIV)

Beloved, that’s called growing from faith to faith. When God says I am going to increase you, just like what our feature text says about the grain of wheat, expect the dying process. This is a process that would test what’s in your heart and really humble you so that when the increase comes, you know to always acknowledge God and give Him the glory.

Unfortunately, we live in a microwave generation where we want instant things but that’s not God’s way of doing things. With God’s way, you are purified. You are pruned. You die to self and your character is transformed. Like someone said a while back, when God says I will… pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it, at times, it could be that we don’t have the character enough to store it.

Beloved, show me a true man or woman of God that is doing great things for God and I would show you someone that has truly been broken. They may not come out and say what they’ve been through but if they dare say anything, you would be amazed. However, through it all, I like the Scripture that says… After you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself RESTORE, CONFIRM, STRENGTHEN, and ESTABLISH YOU (1 Peter 5:10 ESV)

That’s His word for you.

12. November 2016 · Comments Off on DON’T SETTLE BECAUSE YOU ARE WEARY · Categories: Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Restoration

Now a certain man… had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?” (John 5:5-6 NKJV)

Beloved, here are the words of someone that’s become so weary…

“I am still applying for jobs but honestly I am not that interested any more. I think I am just drained. I am drained physically, emotionally and mentally. I am just tired of everything”.

So, what kind of advice do you give to someone that has found themselves in such a position? Let’s not pretend, I know we have been trained to say ‘it is well’ but after constantly going from one battle to another for a very long time, there’s the tendency to find that you are just drained and have lost your fighting spirit and just want to settle where you are but I believe that’s why Jesus would often ask people that have been in the same condition for long periods of time; “DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?”

Beloved, one could think this was a silly question to ask, however, I’ve found that most people get so accustomed to their situation that they bring out their mats, try to find a comfortable spot and just lay there. But that’s exactly what the enemy wants to happen to you and so he does everything to wear you down. Jesus once told Peter… Simon, Simon (Peter), listen! Satan has asked excessively that [all of] you be given up to him [out of the power and keeping of God], that he might sift [all of] you like grain, But I have prayed especially for you [Peter], that your [own] faith may not fail; and when you yourself have turned again, strengthen and establish your brethren (Luke 22:31-32 AMPC).

Beloved, like I said, what kind of advice do you give to someone that has found themselves in such a position where they have lost their fighting spirit? We all have our moments of despair but that’s why we’ve been advised to… be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings (1 Peter 5:8-9 NIV).

Beloved, it’s a great battle for your faith. One you’ve got to keep fighting till the very end. That is why you would hear the great Apostle Paul say… I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7 NIV).

Beloved, are you going to SETTLE BECAUSE YOU ARE WEARY or are you going to keep fighting the good fight of faith? DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?

…Rise, take up your bed and walk (John 5:8 NKJV)
