A DISCERNING HEART

DISCERNING HEART; NOT EASILY DECEIVED Discernment is the ability to get quick perceptions or judgement on an important matter. For judgment, discernment is more than an instinct or a psychological attribute. It’s the divine ability given by God to understand his leadings per time. It is seeing and knowing beyond the physical. Within judgment, discernment involves going past the mere perception of something and making nuanced judgments about its properties or qualities. Discernment is a quality of attentiveness to God’s voice or any other he speaks such that, over time, this develops into the ability to sense God’s heart and purpose in any given moment of our live. We become familiar with the tone, quality, and content of God’s voice per time.       With the world’s quest for power, money and fame. so many have lost their hard-earned money or precious properties because they could not discern and make right decisions as at when due. The discerning heart functions as a result of the discerning spirit and the Spirit comes to play when one’s heart is yielded to God. For God is the giver of all things and all things are received in Christ Jesus. When a man is covetous and…

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…

FOCUS ON YOUR FOCUS- Fulfilling your Divine Calling

Focus they say creates blindness. I mean blindness to all forms of distraction. Distraction is described as an attraction that side-tracks you. Distraction may look like something attractive; it can even be an addition but it leaves you not fulfilling your divine mandate for destiny. Sometimes, it makes a man becomes nothing as touching God’s agenda and purpose. A man that is said to be focused is a man who has only one goal/objective and who knows the why’s of his purpose and he pursues the reason for living. A man of focus is not one who always compares and contrasts himself with others, instead he runs with deep insight and understanding of God’s will. He is not trying to do what everybody is doing but what he has been called to do. He is a man of one-eye, I mean he is concerned about just one thing; what God has called him into. When you keep looking at a particular direction, you find out that you cannot see what’s happening at other areas; You can only get to look at other areas except you lose focus of the direction of concern. When you focus on your God-given goal, you…

THE SPOKEN WORD

For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 The spoken word is God’s authoritative word for which he brings things into being. The spoken word is the power of God at work for which he performs all things, the spoken word is God’s power and authority at work. When God speaks, his words will come to pass and not a jot of God’s word will go without accomplishing that which God have spoken. This is because God’s word is like a messenger that does not return without accomplishing that which God has spoken. The spoken word is the power of God to cause a change that is why it is by the word all things were created. God and his word are inseparable, this tells us that the word has the same capacity by which God has. This means when God sends his word, it goes with the same strength as if God did it. When God speaks a word, it goes in…

FORGIVENESS; THE KEY TO UNDILUTED FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD

Have you ever been in a situation where you have been offended and the person in question does not see any reason to ask for your forgiveness or plead with you. In this case, you might become pissed off and wonder if the person can be forgiven. The scripture has rightly given us examples of what it is to forgive, the benefits and how we can become victorious as we forgive one another. The first case study I will like to speak about is that of our Lord Jesus, the one who lived and died forgiving us all. Jesus the son of God was sent to pay our debt in spite of our ingratitude and desire to continue in sin, he died on the cross for us to inherit life in abundance. He did not die for our sins because we had done good deeds to him or to another, infact the scripture describes the wickedness of man to be terrible and unthinkable. Man was in a state of shame; no man was worthy of being called good until Christ came for us all. He bore our pain on his body and healed us by his stripes. This is indeed…

THE GOOD SHEPHERD

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.       Psalm 23:1-6 Who is a Shepherd? A shepherd is one who tends a flock, to pasture, to graze and feed. A shepherd can also mean a ruler, teacher. A shepherd cares about his sheep or his pastures. He endeavors to nourish his sheep/herd and sustain them. Just like a father nourishes his family; seeking better means of living for his home, a shepherd cares for the sheep and feeds them. Therefore, I can say without the…

MASSIVE OUTPOUR

There is something called massive outpour, it is the release of grace upon a life, family, a business and more. It is when God shines his face upon a life, the outcome or result is always massive. Acts 2:1-4 KJV And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. [2] And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. [3] And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. [4] And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Have you seen a business that is done on the bill of grace or a marriage done on a bill mercy and grace; the result is always different. This is because just like Jesus was never ordinary when he was here on earth. He worked the works of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, he did nothing by the energy of the flesh that’s why he got the result he got. Every life…
