David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David ENCOURAGED AND STRENGTHENED HIMSELF in the Lord his God (1 Samuel 30:6 AMPC).

Beloved, I remember listening to someone say that to encourage yourself in the Lord is a very good thing until you get stuck. Of course, we all need encouragement from time to time. There are times in life when bad things happen and we do need God’s encouragement, but the danger is when we can’t move on from there. It’s just like when people get addicted to painkillers after taking them for a while. The pain is no longer there, but they can’t stop taking them.

“Stop listening to the same encouraging message over and over again”, they said. Well, I totally got what they were trying to say because I’ve found that I’ve gone off some of the preachers I used to listen to when I was at a very low point in my life. For instance, I remember the very first email devotional I received when my brother died said something along the lines of “there are some things that happen to you that you just have to file in the ‘I cannot understand it folder of your head’”. I don’t need to tell you that I started listening to every sermon they preached and God used their message of hope to minister to me greatly. The Lord is great like that, but I believe a time comes when He wants you to move on and not stay low.

We are told that after encouraging himself… David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all. SO DAVID WENT… (1 Samuel 30:8-9 AMPC)

Beloved, the Lord gave the go ahead and SO DAVID WENT… He moved on. He took action and as a result… David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken and rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing, small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken; David recovered all (1 Samuel 30:18-19 AMP).

Can you imagine if David remained stuck at the stage in his life when he needed encouragement? Everybody had turned on him so who knows; probably he would have started to play the victim and before you know it, depression would have set in. Only God knows what would have happened to his wife and children then.

Beloved, there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV). DON’T GET STUCK WHERE YOU ARE. People’s lives and future may depend on your next move.

I say to you, get up, pick up your mat and go… (Mark 2:11 AMP)

21. January 2017 · Comments Off on THE KIND OF AUTHORITY WE OUGHT TO SEEK · Categories: Authority, Choices, Courage, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Relationship

But the officer said, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed. I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who were following him, he said, “I tell you the truth, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel! (Matthew 8:8-10 NLT)

Beloved, in the movie ‘War room’, there was a scene where a knife man came up to Elizabeth and Miss Clara and Elizabeth was willing to give him her purse but Miss Clara looked him straight in the eye and boldly said “You put that knife right down in the name of Jesus” and he did to the amazement of even the policemen and then she said something like its peoples decision to give their money to a thief”. Her response talks about choices.

Now that’s authority but not everybody has that kind of authority or should I say not everyone exercises that kind of authority. However, we need to. In our feature text, the officer clearly understood how authority works and as a result… Jesus said to the Roman officer, “Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.” And the young servant was healed that same hour (Matthew 8:13 NLT).

Beloved, based on the kind of revelation that Simon Peter had, Jesus told him… “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being. Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17-19 NLT)

I’ll give you kingdom keys based on revelation – of who I am, who you are and what you can demand. Beloved, one of the things the Lord told me was that this is a year to work in your authority. Queen Esther had to rise to a certain level of authority and demand that certain laws be changed and it involved revelation of who she was, what she was called to do and off course courage.

Beloved, there’s a certain authority you walk in that demands an audience. It is the kind that the Lord sanctions. On the mount of transfiguration, we are told that… a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. LISTEN TO HIM.” (Matthew 17:5 NLT). This is different from when Jesus was baptised. We are told that… suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 NKJV)

However, it’s now LISTEN TO HIM… Who listens to you?

SELAH!

20. October 2016 · Comments Off on DON’T YOU HAVE ENOUGH PROOF THAT YOU CAN DO IT? · Categories: Action, Courage, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Trusting God

After exploring the land for forty days, the men returned to Moses, Aaron, and the whole community of Israel… They reported to the whole community what they had SEEN AND SHOWED THEM THE FRUIT THEY HAD TAKEN FROM THE LAND. This was their report to Moses: “WE ENTERED THE LAND you sent us to explore, and it is indeed a bountiful country—a land flowing with milk and honey. HERE IS THE KIND OF FRUIT IT PRODUCES. BUT the people living there are powerful, and their towns are large and fortified. We even saw giants there… (Numbers 13:25-28 NLT)

Beloved, unfortunately, giants like the ones mentioned in our feature text like to position themselves in front of what the Lord wants to give us and yes, they can be intimidating. However, I only have one question for these men that brought back a report to Moses; “For the period of 40 days you were exploring the land, didn’t the giants see you? Weren’t they there when you took the fruits? If they were such a threat, how did you manage it?

Beloved, Moses had told the men to… BE OF GOOD COURAGE. And bring some of the fruit of the land (Numbers 13:20 NKJV). So, they must have been brave enough in the first place to take some fruits. But then, the devil magnified the giants they saw. As a result, the whole community suffered but isn’t it interesting that the evidence the community SAW was not enough. Rather, they went for what they HEARD.

I say this so that you are cautious of the people you listen to. There are a few like Caleb who would tell you it’s possible… “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!” (Numbers 13:30 NLT) and there’s the majority that would tell you it is impossible. They would tell you that they’ve been there and these are the reasons why you can’t. We are told that… the other men who had explored the land with him disagreed. “We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are!” So they spread this bad report about the land among the Israelites: “The land we traveled through and explored will devour anyone who goes to live there. All the people we saw were huge. We even saw giants there… next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and THAT’S WHAT THEY THOUGHT, TOO!” (Numbers 13:31-33 NLT).

No, that’s what you thought and you can’t always go by feelings. Beloved, most times, we have good evidence in front of us and it’s not the giants that stop us from moving forward. It’s our own fear and that of others that we’ve listened to.

Beloved, the spies said… WE ENTERED THE LAND… That was enough because the Lord said… Wherever you set foot, that land will be yours (Deuteronomy 11:24 NLT)

David said I have killed the lion and bear which gave him courage to face his giant (1 Samuel 17:36). Haven’t you got any proof in your hands that you can do it?

01. October 2016 · Comments Off on THE LAST DOOR IS UP TO YOU TO OPEN · Categories: Action, Courage, Faith, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Prayer

Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant named Rhoda came to answer the door. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!” “You’re out of your mind,” they told her. When she kept insisting that it was so, they said, “It must be his angel.” But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished (Acts 12:13-16 NIV).

Beloved, I read where someone said that their daughter loves to run up to the automatic doors of a particular shop so that it automatically open as she gets there. However, after going through that door, they get to the second door which is manual but she kept running to it expecting it to open on its own until her dad had to tell her that “we can get in but we have to open the door this time”.

The reason I’m sharing this story is because the devil doesn’t mind you praying even though he would do everything to stop you but he definitely mind’s you believing and there’s definitely a difference between praying, believing and receiving. Some people have mastered the act of praying but they struggle to believe and then, they would rather keep praying than open their hearts to receive what they’ve been praying for because it’s either too scary or they lack courage.

Immediately the church started praying for Peter who was locked up in prison, God went to work. He sent an angel to get Peter out of prison and all the doors that were an obstacle to Peter’s freedom opened of their own accord… They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. IT OPENED FOR THEM BY ITSELF, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left Him (Acts 12:10 NIV).

Beloved, the church didn’t have to do anything. All the doors opened of their own accord but here’s the thing; the Lord left the last door for Peter to knock on and the church that had been praying for Peter had to open it to receive him. The Lord was not going to open that door. It was up to them to open it.

Beloved, what am I trying to say? Do you lack the courage to open the door to what God has sent your way and simply receive it? Everything is already in place waiting for you. All you need to do is go for that interview and the Job is yours. All you need to do is put in your proposal and the contract or whatever it is you are after is yours. All you need to do is speak to that person and the answer is yes.

I ask again… Do you lack the courage to open the door to what God has sent your way and simply receive it?

“…I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you (Luke 11:9 NIV).

25. August 2016 · Comments Off on TIME TO TAKE A BOLD STEP · Categories: Action, Authority, Choices, Courage, favor, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Trusting God

He was pleased when he noticed Queen Esther waiting in the court. He extended his gold scepter with his hand, inviting her in. Esther walked toward him, and when she was close enough, she reached out and touched the king’s scepter. What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? I’ll give you anything—even half of my kingdom—all you need to do is ask (Esther 5:2-3 Voice).

Beloved, yesterday we looked at Mordecai’s ability to trust God for deliverance. Today, the focus is on Esther who needed to make a courageous move to plead her case before the king but had to first challenge her fears because the enemy is an expert at bombarding our minds with reasonable arguments why we can’t take bold steps and to be honest, the facts about some situations can be intimidating. It could be something that’s never been done before and the devil would come up with the consequences of your proposed actions so you dare not make a move.

Esther feared that the king would kill her. She said… How am I supposed to see the king? It’s known throughout the land, from the greatest of the king’s officials to the common folk who live in the provinces, that any person who approaches the king in the inner chamber without being invited is sentenced to death. That’s the law! There’s only one exception, and that’s if the king were to hold out the gold scepter to that person and spare his or her life. It’s been 30 days since the king last summoned me! (Esther 4:11 Voice)

Esther was afraid but fear is usually from the enemy. Even if what he said was a fact and involved a high level of risk, history makers have to take certain amounts of risk. Esther made up her mind that… “I will go in to the king and plead my people’s case, even though it means breaking the law. And IF I DIE, THEN I DIE!” (Esther 4:16 Voice)

IF I DIE, THEN I DIE… Beloved, you can see from our feature text that Esther didn’t die. Rather, she found grace. The king was pleased to see her and he gave her a blank cheque.

Perhaps this is speaking to you today? Do you have to approach someone or a system but the enemy has bombarded your mind with all sorts of reasons why you shouldn’t go to that person and make your request? Perhaps you need to resolve issues with someone and the enemy is telling you that they wouldn’t take it well. But what if on the contrary, they would admire your boldness and be happy that you made a move.

Beloved, things may not be as bad as you think. Don’t allow satan’s argument cause you to entertain fear. Remember… God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV).

07. June 2016 · Comments Off on RELYING ON THE HOLY SPIRIT‏ FOR COURAGEOUS CONFIDENCE‏ · Categories: Action, Authority, Courage, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ

And now, Lord, take note of their intimidations intended to silence us. Grant us, Your servants, the courageous confidence we need to go ahead and proclaim Your message… They finished their prayer, and immediately the whole place where they had gathered began to shake. All the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began speaking God’s message with courageous confidence (Acts 4:29-31 VOICE).

Beloved, are you facing an intimidating situation where you have to be bold and courageous and you are just not feeling up to facing it? Well, I’ve been there but the Lord always makes me realise that He doesn’t raise cowards and though I haven’t always done confrontations with the right spirit, however, that’s why we need the Holy Spirit (THE RIGHT SPIRIT!!!).

Have you tried asking for the Holy Spirit to fill you with the boldness and courage you need? In our feature text, the disciples prayed for courageous confidence and as they finished praying, they were… filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began speaking God’s message with courageous confidence.

Beloved, many people in the world turn to alcohol to give them false confidence and courage when they have to face some difficult situations‎ and when you hear them talking under its influence, you would be like “who is this person? What has come over you?” Well, it’s the effect of alcohol and I guess that’s the same effect the disciple’s got when they were filled with the Holy Spirit.

According to my Bible notes “the Holy Spirit changes everyone and everything. If there is any doubt about the power of the Spirit, just take a look at Peter. When Jesus was captured, Peter cowered in fear that he might be identified as a man who loved Jesus. Now this same man is preaching, healing, and pointing his finger in the face of Jewish officials who have captured him and John. WITH A BOLDNESS THAT IS NOT HIS OWN, he blames them for the death of Jesus and does not cower at their show of violence”.

WITH A BOLDNESS THAT IS NOT HIS OWN… Beloved, we need to keep reminding ourselves of this truth that it is never in our own strength… “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies (Zechariah 4:6 NLT).

Also, recently, I was sharing with someone that courage and boldness is not about the ability to shout and come across as intimidating or in the show of violence. It’s about the authority that you have and that’s the kind of authority that the Holy Spirit gives where you can remain cool, calm and collected and just say the words backed by His authority.

Beloved, do you need the courageous confidence to do what it is that you need to do? Why not pray like the disciples did?

14. April 2016 · Comments Off on HAVEN’T YOU BEEN COMMANDED TO BE COURAGEOUS? · Categories: Courage, Fear, God's Plan, Jesus Christ

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 AMP)

Beloved, when you read this text, you kind of get the impression that the Lord had to have a lot of pep talks with Joshua just to make him feel more courageous. The Lord had to remind him over and over again… Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! But for what? I ask this because as I read this and then moved on to the next chapter, I saw what the Lord already knew about Joshua’s enemies.

Rahab told the spies Joshua sent to spy out the Land that… I know the Eternal has given your people this land. Your coming has paralyzed us all with fear. We have heard how the Eternal held back the Red Sea so you could escape from Egypt on dry land and how you completely destroyed the Amorite kings, Sihon and Og—and their kingdoms—on the far side of the Jordan. As soon as this news reached us, our hearts melted like wax and NONE OF US HAD AN OUNCE OF COURAGE LEFT. The Eternal One, your God, is truly God of the heavens above and the earth below (Joshua 2:9-11 VOICE).

We also see this again as they advanced forward… When the kings of the Amorites… and the kings of the Canaanite cities… heard how the Eternal had dried up the waters of the Jordan so the Israelites could cross, they were alarmed, and their courage failed at the thought of the advancing Israelites (Joshua 5:1 VOICE).

Beloved, Joshua’s enemies had no courage whatsoever and I can just imagine how the Lord can get kind of frustrated when we allow lack of courage hold us back because He knows there’s really nothing to be afraid off… Your enemies are actually afraid of you because unfortunately they know the power that backs you up more than you do. However, it’s almost like the devil places a mirage in front of us and one online dictionary says “the definition of a mirage is an optical illusion, SOMETHING THAT YOU BELIEVE YOU SEE BUT THAT ISN’T REALLY THERE”.

Beloved, has the enemy placed a huge mirage in front of you that is causing you to want to back down? HAVEN’T YOU BEEN COMMANDED TO BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS? Isn’t it a shame to know that you backed out because you lacked the courage and for what? A mirage?

You see, God did not give us a cowardly spirit but a powerful, loving, and disciplined spirit (2 Timothy 1:7 VOICE). Other translations say… God has not given us the spirit of fear… but I like how this translation says… God did not give us a cowardly spirit.

BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS… Go forward and possess your future.

13. April 2016 · Comments Off on GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE · Categories: Courage, God's Plan, Jesus Christ

On that day the Lord magnified and exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; so they feared him [with profound awe and reverence], just as they had feared Moses all the days of his life (Joshua 4:14 VOICE).

Beloved, reading about the start of Joshua’s calling, I couldn’t help but imagine what it must have been like for Joshua to fill such big shoes of that of Moses his predecessor. The Lord came to Joshua and said… Since My servant Moses is now dead, you and the Israelites must prepare to cross over the Jordan River to enter the land I have given you. I will give you every place you walk, wherever your feet touch, just as I promised Moses (Joshua 1:2-3 VOICE).

I can only imagine what it felt like before Joshua took that first step. According to my Bible notes… it’s an intimidating thing to follow a legend, but the charge God gives Joshua also gives him what he needs to succeed: Be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:6), and keep the words of God always in front of you. If you do those things, then you can’t go wrong. And if you do those things, God says He will be with you (Joshua 1:7-9).

The Lord had to repeatedly encourage Joshua till it got to the point where He must have said “let Me show you how much I am backing you up”. The Lord told Joshua…Today I will do wonders that will begin to show the Israelites that you have My special favor, that I am with you just as I was with Moses before you (Joshua 3:7 VOICE) and as a result, Joshua found himself doing that unimaginable task that he saw his former boss carry out that he probably felt was a very intimidating act to follow but the thing is that he didn’t have to do it in the exact same way.

Moses had to cross his red sea after he split it with his staff but Joshua’s was the river Jordan which they had to step on first before the water stopped. The Bible lets us know that… during harvest time the Jordan is swollen, running over its banks; but when the priests stepped into the river’s edge, the waters stopped… Then the Israelites crossed the Jordan opposite the city of Jericho, walking on dry land just as Moses had led their ancestors from Egypt (Joshua 3:15-16 VOICE).

I’m sure Joshua never imagined that this could also happen in his time but it was God’s power working through Moses and not Moses’ power and the Lord had told Moses… I will be with you just as I was with Moses, and I will never fail or abandon you (Joshua 1:5 VOICE).

Beloved, is comparing yourself to someone in big shoes intimidating you? Apostle Paul said… they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise (‏ 2 Corinthians 10:12 NKJV). Why not give yourself a chance and watch how the Lord does what He wants to do in and through you?

25. January 2016 · Comments Off on NO DANCING BACK AND FORTH‏ · Categories: Choices, Courage, Faith, Fear, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Trusting God

Immediately Jesus reached for Peter and caught him. O you of little faith. WHY DID YOU DOUBT AND DANCE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN FOLLOWING ME AND HEEDING FEAR? (Matthew 14:31 VOICE)

Beloved, does this sound like you right now? Isn’t it interesting that regardless of all the word of God we hear that should increase our faith (Romans 10:17), these two relentless enemies called ‘DOUBT’ and ‘FEAR’ somehow finds a way of creeping up into our minds? And unfortunately, if we heed to them, they end up crippling our walk of faith.

I like how the Voice translation expounds on Matthew 14:31… WHY DID YOU DOUBT AND DANCE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN FOLLOWING ME AND HEEDING FEAR…

I love the picture of DANCING BACK AND FORTH. It means once you’ve made the decision to do something by faith, then do it and just keep focusing on moving forward only. In the midst of uncertainty, based on what He saw Jesus do, Peter was courageous enough to make a decision to do what no one else had done before and he backed that decision by taking the first few steps… Peter stepped out of the boat onto the water and began walking toward Jesus but when he remembered how strong the wind was, his courage caught in his throat and he began to sink (Matthew 14:29-30 VOICE).

I can just imagine the thoughts going through Peter’s mind. “Is it really Jesus that instructed me to do this? Then, why’s the wind still strong?”

But Peter, remember the first thing you did was to confirm with Jesus and I can just picture Jesus saying “Peter, you asked if it was Me and I told you yes, it was Me… “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.” Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, order me to come to You on the water.” SO HE SAID, “COME…” (Matthew 14:27-29 NET).

Beloved, the fact that the storm is still raging, doesn’t mean it isn’t Jesus that called you. Secondly, walking on water isn’t something that’s been done before so don’t be surprised that the people sitting inside the boat that see you try to do what isn’t familiar to them would try to come up with all sorts of reasoning and at times, listening to reason can cause you to doubt your decision and them down you go.

Peter made a decision that was reliant on him focusing and depending absolutely on Jesus alone and that’s what was meant to keep him from sinking. That’s why we are told to fix our eyes on Jesus… looking away from all that will distract us and focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith… (Hebrews 12:2 AMP)

Beloved, this is not the time to DANCE BACK AND FORTH‏ giving into ‘DOUBT’ and ‘FEAR’. Regardless of the storm, just trust in Him who has called you and keep walking…

11. November 2015 · Comments Off on RUN QUICKLY TOWARDS IT‏ · Categories: Action, Courage, Fear, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Mind, Trusting God

When the Philistine came forward to meet David, DAVID RAN QUICKLY TOWARD THE BATTLE LINE to meet the Philistine. David put his hand into his bag and took out a stone and slung it, and it struck the Philistine, sinking into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth (1 Samuel 17:48-49 AMP).

DAVID RAN QUICKLY TOWARD THE BATTLE LINE… Reading this, I’m thinking this is exactly how I’ve learnt to tackle anything bigger than me that I’ve ever done. I run quickly towards it because if you give me a minute to think about it, then I won’t move from where I am.

I bet David ran quickly towards Goliath because he knew that if he stopped for a minute to really size up Goliath, fear would have gotten the best of him but he realised there was no time for that.

It’s the same with me. It took me a long time though but I finally got to the place where I decided that to conquer what’s ahead of me, I can’t give room for my mind to play tricks on me. Once I’m convinced that the Lord is behind what‎ I’m doing, I immediately commit myself so that there’s no room to back down. I run quickly towards it…

Dear friend, how many times have you talked yourself out of doing ‎something great? How many times have you gone to bed feeling all enthusiastic about a new idea that was dropped into your spirit but by the time you woke up in the morning, you say “what was I thinking of?” Well, you were thinking of something great, until you started listening to the enemy.

Fear is probably your first Goliath. It will stop you from making any headway in life if you give it a chance and that is why Paul told Timothy‎… Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a SPIRIT OF FEAR, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:6-7 NKJV).‎ The Amplified Bible says… 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…

Sound judgment is uninfluenced by emotions.

Perhaps this is what the Lord is saying to you today. Don’t make room for fear. Run quickly towards the battle line and take down that Goliath that’s standing before you. You’ve got the word of God in your bag… I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] (Philippians 4:13 AMP)
