Then he went on alone into the wilderness, traveling all day. He sat down under a solitary broom tree and prayed that he might die. “I HAVE HAD ENOUGH, LORD,” he said. “Take my life, for I am no better than my ancestors who have already died.” (1 Kings 19:4 NLT)

Beloved, these are the words of Prophet Elijah who had just finished calling down fire from heaven to consume a very wet sacrifice, humiliated Baal, the people’s god and killed 450 of its prophets and then called down rain after three and a half years of no rain. He had just finished doing great things for God but then here comes the enemy with what he knows how to do best; intimidation, frustration, depression, weariness… Jezebel threatened to kill him so he ran away as fast as he could to find a place to hide and now he wants to end it all.

Are you feeling like Elijah felt? Feeling down? Is the enemy bombarding your mind with rubbish, trying to get you to focus on the negative rather than on the great things God is doing in your life? Have you had enough and just want to give up? Have you withdrawn in to your shell? Well… thank God that He is Omnipresence and He knows where you are hiding. The Lord found Elijah in the cave where he was hiding and… said to him, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE, ELIJAH?” (1 king 19:9)

Could the Lord be asking you the same question today? Perhaps you are feeling down because you think that all your efforts have come to nothing but God is asking, “What are you doing in this lonely place after all you’ve achieved?” Several times the Lord asked Elijah the same question (See 1 king 19:9-14).

Elijah replied, “I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty. But the people of Israel have broken their covenant with you, torn down your altars, and killed every one of your prophets. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me, too.” (1 Kings 19:10 NLT)

Elijah was about to give up based on the lie of the enemy. The Lord told Elijah, you’re not the only one… I will preserve 7,000 others in Israel who have never bowed down to Baal or kissed him!” (1 Kings 19:18 NLT)

Beloved, by now you should know how the enemy works. Know that there are great things ahead. What you need is for Jesus to energise you… Then the angel of the Lord came again and touched him and said, “Get up and eat some more, or the journey ahead will be too much for you.” (1 Kings 19:7 NLT).

Maybe you need time to recuperate but whatever you do, don’t give up.

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 (Galatians 6:9 Voice).

08. July 2016 · Comments Off on PEACE IS A KEY OF THE KINGDOM PT1 · Categories: God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Joy, Peace, Relationship, Rest, Spiritual Growth, Supernatural

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… (Matthew 16:18-19 NLT)

Beloved, this is one scripture I hold close to my heart because it’s one of my personal prophecies and when the Lord says I will give you keys, while you are expecting to just open your hands to receive, His plan is to actually walk you through some things that would grant you assess to the realm of the Kingdom of Heaven.

When we read Scriptures like this we expect something major, but the more I meditate on it, I am getting the revelation that one of the keys of the kingdom is simply peace.

In 2011, at the peak of going through some major trials, the Lord asked me to be still. “Be still?” Now, these are not the words you want to hear when all hell is breaking loose. I really fought God on this one but He insisted I should be still and I remember waking up from sleep one morning to find that I was reciting these words that Jesus spoke… “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27 NIV)

Beloved, it took me a while but I finally took hold of this key and it prepared me for future storms.

In our feature text, the Lord told Peter I will give you the keys to the kingdom and like me, when Peter along with the other disciples first experienced a storm with Jesus, Jesus… was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “PEACE, BE STILL!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm (Mark 4:38-39 NKJV).

“PEACE, BE STILL!” How can PEACE calm down a storm? Peter probably couldn’t comprehend how this was possible but after walking with Jesus for a while, he mastered this key and later on, in the midst of his own personal storm, locked in prison and to be assassinated the next day, like Jesus, Peter was found fast asleep till an angel of the Lord came to His rescue… They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So they passed through… (Acts 12:10 NLT).

Peter received the key of peace and it opened the door to the iron gate that locked him up; gates of hell that could not prevail

Beloved, the kingdom of God is… righteousness and PEACE and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17 NKJV) so I urge you to MASTER THE ACT OF PEACE and… do all that you can to live in peace with everyone (Romans 12:18 NLT).

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

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

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

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

Hmmm… IF ONLY WE JUST TRUST GOD…

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

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

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

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

22. January 2016 · Comments Off on MAY YOUR SEARCH BE OVER‏ · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Rest, Restoration, Testimony

So the Eternal God put him into a deep sleep, removed a rib from his side, and closed the flesh around the opening. HE FORMED A WOMAN from the rib taken out of the man AND PRESENTED HER TO HIM… AT LAST, A SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER. Bone from my bones. Flesh from my flesh. I will call this one “woman” as an eternal reminder that she was taken out of man (Genesis 2:21-23 VOICE).

AT LAST, A SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER… Reading this, I couldn’t help but feel Adam’s sigh of relief. After searching through all the animals, he found her! LOL… but I’m not just trying to be funny, the Bible says… out of the same ground the man was made from, the Eternal God sculpted every sort of animal and every kind of bird that flies up in the sky. Then He brought them to the man and gave him the authority to name each creature as he saw fit: whatever he decided to call it, that became its name. Thus the man chose names for domesticated animals, birds, and wild beasts. But none of these creatures was a right and proper partner for Adam (Genesis 2:19-20 VOICE).

However,… At LAST, A SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER… As I read this, I couldn’t help but say this prayer for all the single people out there truly searching for an ideal partner… May your search be over‏ in 2016. May this be your testimony… AT LAST, A SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER. You won’t call her beast, dog… but you will call her “my woman”.

HE FORMED A WOMAN… AND PRESENTED HER TO HIM… Single women, do your best to yield to the forming. That SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER is somewhere out there waiting for you and the Lord is preparing you for Him because He knows exactly how to mould you so you fit that SUITABLE COMPANION, A PERFECT PARTNER that’s just for you.

And as for you single men, what are you focusing on? Interestingly, I was reading about when Isaac was about to get married… One evening when he went out to the field to think [meditate; reflect; or walk], he looked up [raised his eyes] and saw camels coming. Rebekah also looked [raised her eyes] and saw Isaac… (Genesis 24:63-65 EXB).

Hmmm… Isaac looked up and saw camels while Rebekah looked up and saw Isaac. Men are usually known to chase after a livelihood before settling down; some to the point that it becomes an excuse for not settling but for Adam to find a suitable wife, he was made to rest. It is my prayer that you find rest in the Lord while He perfects all that concerns you… MAY YOUR SEARCH BE OVER‏…

And if already married and you are experiencing anything short of the Lord’s original plan for marriage Genesis 2:24), I pray for total restoration of your unity, you joy, your peace… MAY YOUR SEARCH BE OVER‏…

10. January 2016 · Comments Off on DON’T RELY ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING‏ · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Promise, Rest, Thoughts, Trusting God

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).

Are you someone that even when the Lord makes a promise, you try to figure out how it’s going to happen? Considering what’s in front of you, you’re left thinking “but how can it happen? It certainly can’t happen this way because that road is blocked and definitely not that way because…”

Maybe not you but I have. Well, I and Abraham. The Lord promises to bless Abraham… But Abram replied, “O Sovereign Lord, what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since you’ve given me no children, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. You have given me no descendants of my own, so one of my servants will be my heir.” (Genesis 15:2-3 NLT)

So, the Lord had previously said to Abraham… “I am giving all this land, as far as you can see, to you and your descendants as a permanent possession. And I will give you so many descendants that, like the dust of the earth, they cannot be counted! (Genesis 13:15-16 NLT). However, with Abraham’s limited thinking, he tries to figure out how the Lord’s promise will come to pass‎. Looking at his situation, Abraham must have wondered, “which descendants are you talking about?” and not being able to see another way out, he concludes that it has to be through Eliezer. However, the Lord said that’s not how it’s going to happen… “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” (Genesis 15:4 NLT). At least, he should be grateful that the Lord didn’t just leave him there to keep figuring it out.

Aren’t we sometimes like Abraham? “Lord, I know you’ve made this great promise but based on my own understanding, I can only see it happening this way”. Years go by and Abraham does it again… How could I become a father at the age of 100?”… “And how can Sarah have a baby when she is ninety years old?” So Abraham said to God, “May Ishmael live under your special blessing!” (Genesis 17:17-18 NLT).

Hmmm… First, Eliezer and now Ishmael… but it was neither. It was Isaac. Even then, Isaac was just a seed.

Beloved, we always try to figure out things based on our understanding but God… is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams]… (Ephesians 3:20 AMP) so… rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions (Proverbs 3:5 VOICE).

STOP GIVING YOURSELF HEADACHE! LOL

The blessing of the Lord brings [true] riches, and He adds no sorrow to it [for it comes as a blessing from God] (Proverbs 10:22 AMP).

Happy New Year to you beloved one. This is a year that the Lord is going to pour out His blessings on you like you’ve never seen before. It’s a year where the Lord will reward those that have diligently sought after Him (Hebrews 11:6).

However, there’s a ‘God’ kind of blessing that makes one truly rich and there’s a ‘man’ kind of blessing that man comes up with to fix problems just because we are desperate. This is the Isaac versus Ismael kind of blessing – human solution rather than God solution and the Lord has been showing me that the reason why we don’t always get the fullness of what He has for us is because our flesh can’t always handle the process, which at times can be like a Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36-42) kind of process but except a seed falls down and dies, it remains a single seed (John 12:24).

The Lord’s kind of blessing is dependent on what you are willing to let go of in the flesh ‎to allow Him bring to you by His spirit (Zechariah 4:6). This year, letting go of what’s flesh will allow you to receive what’s spirit – supernatural provision.

Beloved, be wise to ensure that what you get has God’s blessing on it. Bread in hand of Jesus was blessed and that’s why He was able to supernaturally multiply it (Matthew 14:18-21).

A few days ago, we were singing this well-known song that says… “Thanks… thanks… I give You thanks for all You have done… I am so blessed… my soul has found rest…”

Immediately, the servant of God took the microphone and started confirming what the Lord had been speaking to me about. You can be blessed but your soul has not found rest because that blessing comes with so much sorrow and toiling but… all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors… (Hebrews 4:10 NLT).

The Lord’s blessing brings wealth, and no sorrow [trouble] comes with it (Proverbs 10:22 EXB)… neither does toiling increase it (Proverbs 10:22 AMPC).

Beloved, it’s a leap year – a season of great grace and supernatural favour. Doors would supernaturally be opened for you. Don’t settle for an alternative blessing. Don’t be like the lame man by the beautiful gate who was about to settle for regular alms but… then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—WALKING, LEAPING, AND PRAISING GOD (Acts 3:6-8 NKJV).

The Lord’s kind of blessing you will receive this year will have you WALKING, LEAPING, AND PRAISING GOD.

God bless you

When my mind really starts to play tricks on me, I always think of Jacob and all that wasted years he spent lamenting over the supposed death of his son who in actual fact went on training to become the Personal Adviser to Pharaoh and Governor of all of Egypt. But that’s because the enemy so cleverly put together some physical evidence for him to see; missing son plus coat stained with blood equals Joseph must be dead. As a result he was inconsolable… His family all tried to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “I will go to my grave mourning for my son,” he would say, and then he would weep (Genesis 37:35 NLT).

Jacob felt everything was going against him (Genesis 42:36) but the truth is that it did not matter how long it took for him to see Joseph again, JOSEPH WAS NOT DEAD. That was the truth and that’s why we are always to go by the truth we see in God’s word rather than the physical facts presented before us.

This used to be a challenge for me because with a background in project management, I was trained to think of worst case scenarios. That’s how we manage risks and actually that’s how I’ve always handled life; just tell me what the worst case scenario is so that I can prepare my mind. It was so bad that someone actually had to tell me that a particular situation I was trying to manage was a project for only God to handle. I struggled but had to find a way to let it go and just trust God and when I did, things didn’t turn out the way the enemy painted the picture in my head.

You’ve been told to… Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and DO NOT RELY ON YOUR OWN INSIGHT OR UNDERSTANDING (Proverbs 3:5 AMP). Can you imagine how Jacob must have felt when he saw Joseph again? He must have realised that his INSIGHT OR UNDERSTANDING failed him big time and robbed him of his life. What is the evidence you see in front of you? When are you going to learn to walk by faith and not by sight? As far as you keep drawing conclusions based on what you see, the enemy would keep presenting false evidence that seem so real.

Dear friend, the way forward is to fix your eyes on Jesus and what His word says. That’s where the truth can be found. Keep believing that things are working out for your good and they are. You’ve just got to see it with your eyes of faith.

God bless you

Now Elisha had been suffering from the illness from which he died… (2 Kings 13:14 NIV)

‎Yesterday, after asking the question; ‘DO YOU JUST NEED TO VENT?’, I received the following email;

“I remember when a very dear friend… passed on at 31 years old!… I was so miffed and angry was a mild word. More like rage!

We had gone for vigil the Friday after he died… It was time for Praise and Worship when I lost it! I told God, “look at You? Me? I’m mad and very mad at You! What were you looking at when Bros Bee passed on? Couldn’t You have done something about it? I’m not going to praise You anything! Just take that from me, no praise natin!” I then burst out in tears. You won’t believe me, I felt a hand wrapped around me, rocking me gently until I slept off. He then started to talk to me that it was not His fault. That my friend, A SICKLER BROKE ALL THE RULES. HE DID NOT TAKE ENOUGH REST FOR HIS BODY AND THAT A TIME CAME WHEN THE BODY COULD BEAR IT NO MORE AND IT CAVED IN. THAT EVEN THOUGH WE ARE SPIRIT BEINGS, WE NEED OUR BODIES TO LIVE HERE ON EARTH.”

Hmmm… I’m sharing this for these profound phrases… “BROKE ALL THE RULES… DID NOT TAKE ENOUGH REST FOR HIS BODY… BODY COULD BEAR IT NO MORE AND IT CAVED IN…”

It reminded me of what someone said when asked why some ministers gifted in the healing ministry die of one sickness or the other. For example, Kathryn Kuhlman who died after an open heart surgery and John Alexander Dowie who suffered a stroke. They replied by saying that it’s because they defied the natural law of the physical body. After Kuhlman suffered a heart attack, doctors warned her to slow it down but she did the exact opposite…. more meetings… Jesus using her to heal others but then she dies of sickness.

It also reminded me of how the Lord used Elisha’s story to minister to me when warning about my eating habits…

Then Elisha died and was buried… Once when some Israelites were burying a man… they hastily threw the corpse into the tomb of Elisha… but as soon as the body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man revived and jumped to his feet! (2 Kings 13:20-21 NLT).

The Bible doesn’t exactly give details of the cause of Elisha’s illness but the question is… what if it wasn’t Elisha’s time to die? He was meant to do double of what Elijah did so one would think that if Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven (2 Kings 2:11), Elisha’s exit would be even more dramatic but Elisha died of sickness and his dead bones raised the dead.

Perhaps, there was still so much anointing in him that his body could no longer carry… His body caved in!

Don’t you think the Lord would rather use you alive? ARE YOU TAKING CARE OF YOUR BODY?

God bless you

He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters (Psalm 23:2 AMP).

Every time I read this verse, what jumps out to me so that the Lord sometimes has to make us lie down in a place of rest because we tend to be all over the place. Especially those of us that have had to fight for everything. Our mind, emotions and everything else is always working overtime wondering “What’s next?” “Who’s coming after me?” “Will that thing come through?” We are all over the place that when we get to a season when we’re meant to be still and just watch what the Lord will do, adrenaline won’t let us.

I remember listening to someone ask “how do you think the Israelites felt when Moses parted the red sea and they were made to pass through it?

Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again (Exodus 14:13 AMP). But then, the next thing they see is something dramatic that they’ve never seen before… Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind. The wind blew all that night, turning the seabed into dry land. So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side! Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea (Exodus 14:21-23 NLT).

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord???? Are you serious? With walls of water on both sides of my head and enemies chasing right behind, you want me to be still??? Let’s not forget they were humans just like you and I? You don’t know whether one slight thought of doubt would make the water come gushing down on me. Can you just imagine what the enemy would be whispering in their ears?

We may not like to admit it but there are times when God’s deliverance technique can be traumatic. “I know you are going to come through for me but I don’t want to have to go through that scene”. As a result, we are always on the edge so that even when in green pastures we find it had to be still.

I’m growing to trust the Lord a lot more but personally, I’ve never liked living on the edge… waiting for that 99.999th hour when He comes through for you. “Do you want to give me hypertension?” LOL… So no wonder He has to make us lie down. “It’s okay my child you can go to rest… I’ve got this”.

Saints, when God says ‘be still’, then ‘be still’. It can sometimes be difficult but… Let us LABOUR therefore to enter into that REST (Hebrews 4:11 KJV)

God bless you

HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN in [fresh, tender] green pastures; HE LEADS ME BESIDE THE STILL AND RESTFUL WATERS (Psalm 23:2 AMP).

HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN… Recently, I was listening to the testimony of a lady in ministry who was going all over the world ministering. However, she said the Lord kept telling her to take timeout to spend with Him for fresh revelation but she was too busy. So one day, as she was on stage leading praise and worship, her knee gave way. To cut a long story short, she had to do knee surgery which meant she was bed ridden for months. That was when she said, “okay Lord, You now have my undivided attention”. It took about 8 months or so for her to get back on the pulpit but last week when she finally did, she was on another level.

I heard that it’s hard to make a sheep lie down because they are always going up and down. Perhaps, that’s why the Lord may have to MAKE us lie down sometimes… and say… shhhh… be still.

HE LEADS ME BESIDE THE STILL AND RESTFUL WATERS… This is talking about peace…stillness… rest… but how does the Lord lead us beside still and restful waters? I heard that the sheep is a heavy animal and so when the water current of the brook is moving too fast and the sheep sticks down its head inside to get a drink, it might get sucked into it and swept away.

As sheep, we can get sucked up into stuff. There are certain things that can sweep us away. Things that can take us under. Have you ever looked back and wondered how did I get into this mess? Hmmm… there are times when life can go too fast for one’s safety and I’ve personally seen the Lord take me away from things that are moving too fast for me; things that could pull me away from where I need to be. He has had to shut some doors in my life which may have got me upset but the Lord who knows the beginning from the end shut those doors knowing fully well that that opportunity was way too much for me. I can’t handle it and as attractive as it may look, it’s going to drive me crazy.

Also, when I look back at some relationships the Lord brought me out of… hmmm….

Some of us need to thank God for getting us out of some relationships because if He had not brought us out, some may be in mental homes or prison by now but we thank God for being the kind of God that would lead us besides still waters and as you decide to follow the good Shepherd, He would pull you out of things that have been designed to steal your peace and joy… things designed to give you sleepless nights.

To be continued…

God bless you
