Why Do I Need Jesus?

You are not a mistake. He created you for a purpose. There are 250 million cells in the male sperm. Only one results in pregnancy. So, you are here for a reason. Your purpose is the motivation for your creation. What you are doing right now might not be the reason why you were born. It’s not too late to start all over again.

The greatest goal in life is not to make money, but to find destiny. Jesus wants you to find destiny. He doesn’t want you to continue like this. This life you’re living is not the one He designed for you. You are into drugs, smoking, drinking, lying, and cheating. That’s not in God’s great design for your life. It’s the devil that erodes your destiny with your agreement. You can start all over again. It’s never too late.

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Mathew. 11:28.

In Him alone, you can find rest. The world is restless. There was a storm that troubled the disciples of Jesus, they were worn out in a bid to rescue themselves, but Jesus was sleeping. But when they invited Him to the situation, He calmed the storm. I don’t know the storm ravaging your destiny right now. It could be stormy marriage or financial hardship. Invite Jesus and He will calm the storm.

Your years of toiling are over. Life is an ordinary struggle outside Christ. Peter and others toiled all night and caught nothing. They were professional fishermen but yet, there was nothing to show for their professionalism. They have been casting their net into the wrong place. In the same way, you are skillful but there have been no results despite your skills & intelligence. But when they allowed Jesus in their boat. He asked them to cast their net to the right side. And as they did, they had a net-breaking harvest and asked their partners on the other side to assist with the harvest. Peter’s one-man business expanded into a partnership business (See John.2:5).

Wait a minute, you’ve been casting your net on the wrong side. The job you are doing is wrong. You have made a serious investment in things that God didn’t author (He is the author and finisher of our faith, but He won’t finish what He didn’t start) which has only yielded nothing but losses. Jesus is asking you today, would you let me into your boat? Do you know that there are good and right things? Your current job might be a good one but not right? The devil knows that you are smart to do the wrong thing, He deceives you with a good thing so that you can let go of the right thing.

God wants you back into His original plan for you. Would allow Him to help you or do you still want to do it all by yourself. By not involving God in your life, you are lifting a lorry without a jack. He says: without me, you can do nothing.  If you invest in something that God does not approve of, you will pay for it. That’s why it’s difficult for you to make money. Because the assignment you are pursuing is not orchestrated by God. God has a budget for His project on earth. If you pursue divine assignment, God provides. The Psalmist says: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm.23:1. When God leads, He provides.

Friend, receive my invitation. If you have not accepted Jesus, here is an opportunity to do so now. He is the only way and the truth. You are free by knowing Him. Don’t stay in the middle of the road. It’s a risk. Come to Jesus. Maybe, you’ve once received Christ but you’re no longer in Him, reading your Bible has become dried. You’ve lost your passion for the things of God. Rededicate your life to Jesus. He is the only One that can save you from struggles.

Pray this prayer with me: Father, In the name of Jesus, once I was blind and now I  can see. I received and confessed that you are my personal Lord and savior. Thank you Jesus for accepting me.

Congratulations! If you’ve just said that prayer, you are welcome to the family of Christ. Find a Bible-based Church and join. I know that your life will never remain the same.

Violent Faith

From the days of the Patriarchy to the present, all those who have reigned in life have been men and women of violent faith. Faith that tears the roof off will always get God’s attention (See Luke.5:17-26).

Faith is not a gentle thing; rather, it’s a violent thing. To get God’s attention, some form of violence is required. In Luke.5, some men were bringing a paralytic man to Jesus, convinced that if they got him to Jesus, he would be healed. However, there was such a large crowd at the entrance that they were unable to enter where Jesus was. To get to Jesus, they ripped the roof off the building (Violence).

“And the kingdom of God has suffered violence from the days of John the Baptist until now, and the violent have taken it by force (paraphrased).” –Mathew. 11:12

You’re far too gentle for the victory you seek. Jesus is the lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be a lion’s brother unless you actually are one. Consider a lion: he is always calm. A lion’s eyes are always red, indicating violence. There are no fearful lions, and even his posture frightens the devil. You can’t have a lion share unless you first have a lionheart.

You don’t deserve what you don’t desire.
Faith is not a passive state; it is an action – a doing or a moving force. It is acting in accordance with your beliefs. The woman with the blood issue did not pray, but instead reasoned within herself that “if she touches Jesus’ garment, she will be made whole.” Her blood was stanched as she moved to touch the garment right away. Faith is not a platitude; it is a labour of love. Without work, faith dies (James.2:20). Obedience comes from faith. In other words, unwavering adherence to scriptural instructions.

There are no professors at Pilot’s School, but there are instructors. People do not fly based on their knowledge, but rather on their ability to follow instructions. Connect to the frequency of scriptural instructions to get onboard for a flight. It’s impossible to be dedicated and not be decorated. Your level of obedience today determines your future. You’ll be counted among the world’s highfliers if you follow God’s commandments as a way of life.

The devil is not a gentleman; he will always oppose the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. As a result, God’s word will appear to be a forgery. What happens in life? We’re in a battle with the devil to reclaim our birthright. By being responsible, you can obtain your birthright from your parent (God). Life is a battleground. And the battle is primarily a mental one. The target of the attack is your mind. If you fail there, you will fail in reality. Your mind has the power to either make or break you (See, Ephesians 6:12; John 10:10).

Friend, embrace the truth and shake the dust off your feet. Follow, like, comment, and share. Blessings and love.
