INNER BEAUTY- The Beauty that attracts God.

Beauty is definitely not only in the outlook of a woman. If beauty were limited to the appearance of a lady then many beauty queens that have gotten married to handsome prince would have secured a good home and family, it is amazing to find out that beauty does not comprises on the physical appearances of a lady alone. How she looks, appears when she had done her make-ups and her outfit.             Today our definition of beauty should be according to the standards of God as written in his word “beauty is vain but a woman who fears the Lord she shall be praised”… the scriptures defines beauty as an inner capacity, strength, flavor and aroma that attracts the attention of the King such that he cannot but resides in such a life. You may wonder from this definition, who is that King? What is that Inner capacity?  The beauty that the world defines after it is been seen and looked upon by the beholder, as time goes on begins to lose it worth, value, essence and importance. It won’t take long before he that admires such beauty begins to say otherwise in respect to this world defined beauty.…

BE AT ALERT! 1 Peter 5:8

One of the first thing you think when someone tells you to be at alert or vigilant is that you look around in fear to check what the problem is. When God uses this word, he is talking about the equipping of a man with the whole armour of God which is the perquisite to victory in life. I Peter 5:8             The truth is this; we have an adversary who is always looking around for people he could devour in ignorance, fear, shame, covetousness, pride and other works of the flesh. Anyone who dwells in these things is whatever the Devil and his cohorts are doing. We must stand against man in spirit realm without taking chances as a spiritual being, we have all the right to control every situation and we are master over all circumstances. (Luke 12:32) Probably we have forgotten who God made us, our purpose and identity. Romans 8:15 We are God’s image revealed in Christ Jesus, the glory of the Father established on earth. I am happy to tell you that he Loves you forever. II Timothy 1:7 As a soldier will always be at alert and well armed with weapons, not checking around…

WALKING IN THE TRUTH (John 8:32)

Truth is the genuineness of information or something very important. It is important to note that the truth does not change at all. It remains constant and can stand the test of time. When a man begins to engage him/herself in things that are not true, it can really affect such life negatively.  The truth is essential especially in this generation where everyone loves to tell one or more lies to cover up on their responsibilities. The plan of the devil in this generation is to cause people not to believe in the truth such that they can be easily deceived. The scripture say in John 8:32 “.and you shall know the truth and the truth shall sets you free”. It is certain that the truth cannot fail at all even because it brings light to all circumstances and situation that it comes across. The truth in our country today has totally become a scarce commodity that is very expensive to come by. Many people began their life with the truth but along the way so that was corrupted by flattering coming from the pit of hell Daniel 11; God want us to stand firm in the truth such that…

EXCESS LOVE

A scenario came to mind as I was meditating on the love of God for me. There is a scenario one who is the not the father or mother of a child when the child offends him/ her as the case may be. They may say, “I never want to see you again. Just get out of my sight” and they meant it. They can afford to throw away their relationship with such child without looking back because of course the child is not theirs. Its easy to discard him/her. You have not invested over such child neither do have you gone through any sacrificial experience to get or protect the child so, you don’t really care. The second scenario is that of one who gave birth to that child when the child offends them and they are really angry with the child. Though they are angry with the child, they can never say get out of my life or out my sight I don’t want to see you again, never! No way. Even when they say get away, they are still the one who goes to such child and correct him/her explaining why they are angry and why he/she…

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Spiritual growth is a crucial part of life which no man can afford to joke with this is because man himself is a tripartite being. He is a Spirit with a soul and lives in a body therefore the need to grow spiritually is important in all forms of human endeavor. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 2:14-15 Just like when a child is born, he needs to be nurtured and well taken care of to enhance his growth physically in the same manner a Spirit man needs to be fed and needs to be well nurtured in order to bring him into full manifestation of his potentials or abilities. As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 1 Peter 2:2 Though growth is essential but we must understand that growth needs to happen in a proper way. How do we achieve this? For instance, when a child does not feed on…

ABSOLUTE TRUST

Those who trust in the Lord are steady as Mount Zion, unmoved by any circumstance. Ps 125:1 (TLB) 11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. 12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Ps 5:11-12 (KJV) Have you ever been in a situation where you need someone to lean on?      11 But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten. Jeremiah 20:11 (KJV) Everyone have in one or the other has been in such situations Acts17:28. Many times theses situation has led to some people’s greatness and while some others met their death or were crushed down under such burdens.                   4 Don’t be afraid — you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back — you’re not going to come up short. You’ll forget all about the humiliations of your youth, and the indignities of being a…

GOD’S CREATION AND HIS WISDOM

The main alternative to the concept of God creating everything is the theory of evolution. It suggests that everything we see is the product of blind chance and random changes that add up to order out of chaos and complexity out of simplicity. It takes a great leap of faith to accept evolution as fact. It is totally wrong to suggest that God used evolution to produce the world as we know it because he plainly tells us he created the world as, including humans, in a logical and orderly manner. The bible mentions creation often. We learn from John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1, and many other passages that Jesus is the creator. Blind chance could not possibly have resulted in the wisdom we see all around us in the created world. Psalm 104 in its entirety gives more examples of the creators’ wisdom. We also know facts about the natural world that show God’s wisdom in creation; like symbiotic relationships, where one creature is dependent on another for existence. They could not logically have evolved independently and then somehow become dependent.   God’s wisdom as seen in His creation (Psalm 104:24-30) The earth is full of God’s riches,…

A SPIRIT FILLED MAN

The failure of the natural man is his inability to discern clearly all that God has for him according to the scriptures. He can only see from situations. He walks in the shallowness of his own mind and cannot figure things out. God created the whole world and gave us our uniqueness. We learn to discover all that God has for us immediately we are yielded to Him. But for a spirit filled man who is also known as the Spiritual Man, He has been given a clear insight into God’s word and he walks in the truth he has known. The path of the spiritual man might be filled so much challenges but he learns through God’s word that he has been redeemed and given total victory over all. The enemy of the spirit filled man cannot overwhelm him, actually not because the Spirit filled man is just spiritual but because he lives in him who loves him and gave Himself for him. The heart of the spirit filled man is focused on God since he represents who he aims to become. He fellowships with Him always for day-to-day instructions and help. When the spirit filled man speaks, he…

God’s System of Economy (SELF SUFFICIENCY)

2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: The word sufficient means competent; being qualified enough, to be able. It is been efficient  and up to the task. There is a system of Government that God runs, it is a system of self sufficiency for all. It is a system of eternal relevance. Do you know he has ordained you to bring forth lasting fruits. John 15:16 KJV Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. And in his kingdom, there is no second or lower citizenship  because  everyone in this kingdom enjoys acceptance and God’s immeasurable love. Therefore, they are all empowered to  receive answers  to all their prayers. 2 Peter 1:3 KJV According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and…

THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH

Our words are important part of our lives and it therefore has huge impact on us in many ways. Think of it, even when simple syllables are uttered by your baby in her first year, it means a lot to you as a parent, in the same vein, God is happy when we speak, especially when we speak His word in form of confession. Words are very powerful in moulding our lives and shaping them in accordance to God’s plan and purpose for our lives. Word can be used to create and it can be used to destroy, we can therefore say that words have creative power and destructive power depending on how they are used. In the book of John Chapter one, we read that God’s word had been in existence before the creation of the universe and this same word is the instrument by which God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 KJV In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. This is a statement that we should pay attention to, because the understanding of this scripture and the…
