The backbone of life

The backbone of life

The backbone of lifeThe backbone of life

Every natural happening has its supernatural antecedent. The supernatural is the backbone of life. God is the supernatural. It’s the control room of life.


Listen to me: where you are is smaller than where God is taking you to. God has no problem in expanding you but you must remember to acknowledge Him as the ONE behind it.


The race is not to the swift neither is the battle belongs to the strong. Without God you can do nothing. If you are not abiding in Christ, you will be gathered into fire for destruction by fellow humans.


I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in Him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them Into fire, and they are burned.” Jn.15:5-6


Trying to lift your problem without the supernatural (God) is like trying to lift a lorry without a jack. Living your life outside God’s commandments is like living without purpose. A life that is based on “law of accident”. A life without course. A shapeless life. Those who live this way are cheaply intimated and buffeted by the wicked one.


Many – though born again Christian -easily forget the one behind it after they are blessed. They think it was their smartness that made things happen. Those who are smarter than them are in the grave. This is why God will never take them to the next level.


In Luke Chapter 17 vs 13-16, ten lepers were healed but only one came back to offer thanks. Jesus asked for the remainder (nine). Although, they were healed but the first touch was surely not enough, they needed the second touch to perfect their healings. They will have to live with the stump and scars of leprosy for the rest of their lives.


In vs 17, “And Jesus answering said, were there not 10 cleansed? But where are the nine?”


Friend, acknowledge God with Thanksgiving, praise and worship. Thank Him for what He has done, praise Him for what He will do and worship Him for who He is. This is the surest way to secure a future for yourself.


Wait a minute, don’t forget that praise expands people, appreciation equals multiplication. Those who struggle more and get little results are those who have not added praise to their efforts.


“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and even God, and even our God shall bless us.”


“Out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them and they shall not be few: I will also glorify them and they shall not be small.” Jer.30:19.


If you are not praising God for the joy that you have today, you will be courting a curse on yourself – reversal of blessings – praise is a commandment and if you must enjoy the best of God obedience is essential.


And now; O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear; and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the lord of hosts, I will curse your blessings: yea I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” Mal.2:1-2


Let everything that hath breath praise the lord.“psalm. 150:6
