STANDING STRONG

Why Standing Strong Standing strong means staying strong to your faith, holding to your faith which you have obtained in Christ Jesus. It also means standing strong in the liberty that God made you free, believing every word that the Lord had spoken to you. This is not as a result of the situation whether it difficult or easy, it is because God’s word had come forth or had gone ahead to perfect all that concerns you. Though the fig tree may not blossom; things may not be going as expected or as planned still stand strong. Stand strong because God has a plan for you and his plan for you is good not evil to give you a hope and a future.   Daniel and his companions Stand strong, remember Daniel and his companions, when they were taken captive in the land of Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar whom the Lord gave the Israelites into his hands as at that time. The scriptures made it clear that the children of Israel disobeyed the word of the Lord by doing this, they opened the door for the enemy to come in by not following the precepts God gave them. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach…

WALKING IN THE WISDOM OF GOD

The Wisdom of God is the supreme 1 Timothy 1:17. It is the ultimate of which no man can come into unless he has a walk with God. It is only by intimacy with God that you come into understanding the wisdom of God. Jeremiah 9:24 The wisdom of God is revealed in all the things we can see and we cannot see. Jude 1:25 25 To God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. Jude 25 NKJV   It is the light by which we see into the will of God maximizing times and seasons in our life. It is by the wisdom of God that we know God and his existence 1 John 1:5-7. The air we breathe, the weather, the sun, moon and stars talk about the wisdom of God. It is as we relate with this understanding that we are changed and transformed. Romans 1:20 5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and…

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…

SETTLED

The word settled reveals the state of rest or peace by which all storms and billows are calmed and life is at its peak. It is God’s will for all to be settled. The situation where a life is settled is not actually the absence of chaotic situations or challenges of life, it is the presence of God in all spheres of such life. You must have seen men and women who have money but they are not settled. The kind of settlement we speak of is the inward peace that transcends all understanding. It is when God’s fullness dwells in a life and envelopes it that’s when a life is settled. Our total dependency on our heavenly father who supplies our needs according to his riches in glory through Christ Jesus makes us settled. When a man lack peace and is void of understanding of the word, he isn’t settled. Glory to God for all he has done for us and the finished work on the cross and the resurrection to give us a new life. Today many of us do not accept the word as it were but confess that we truly believe. It is not just words…

TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSEL

In the city of Nazareth, there was a young boy his name was Paul. Paul was a very courageous boy from a tender age, he loves his father and mother and can’t help but follow what they believed in. He was raised to achieve one vision; to be a killer of Christians. He was trained to become one of the best in his country.

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.…

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…
