Discouraged, but not alone


Discouraged but not alone

Discouraged means to make someone feel less confident, enthusiastic, and positive about something, or less willing to do something

Many believers are giving up on God because many are serving God based on contract and not in truth and in deed.

Don’t question God question yourself; don’t blame God blame yourself. God has integrity. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his/her life.

Numbers 23:19 KJV
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

*Reasons not to be discouraged*

(1). God is always at present – Many are sincere but only few are sensitive.

The lack of the consciousness of God’s presence is the major cause of discouragement.

Many are victims of ignorance more than anything else.

Matthew 28:20 KJV
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Gehazi was almost paralyzed with fear when the Syrian army came to arrest Elisha. But when his eyes popped open He could see the angels of God that encamped them, he was at rest.

Seeing into the realm of the spirit will always confer rest in the life of a believer.

(2). The future is great – that ugly situation is not going to remain like that forever. There is always a light at the end of a tunnel.

There is no weeping that is permitted to go beyond a night. Where you are is smaller than where God is taking you to.

Psalm 30:5 KJV
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Habakkuk 2:3 KJV
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

(3). Complains and worries will never move God – understand this truth, God is only moved by our faith.

Hannah was fretted and worried. Until she put a seal on her request, went home rejoicing her desire was not in view.

God hates Murmurers and grumblers. These category of people are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

Philippians 2:14 KJV
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Murmurings will further mess up your situations while complains will further complicate your matters.

(4). Continuity is the golden rule – Continuous, tireless and unrepentant obedience are the hallmarks of a true believer.

James 1:25 KJV
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Both in dry and raining seasons you must continue in your covenant walk with God. You must remain committed to His instructions. That’s the way it works. It works like fire!

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. (Phil.2:7-10)

Habakkuk 3:17-18 KJV
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: [18] Yet I will rejoice in the Lord , I will joy in the God of my salvation.

Finally, God is not a taskmaster, He is a paymaster. God does not use people; He blesses people.

Psalm 126:5-6 KJV
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. [6] He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him .

Marriage is honourable


Marriage is honourable

Psalm 68:6 KJV
God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land .

God is the ‘setter’ of solitary in the family. If you’re

genuine sons and daughters of God; that means your marital destiny isn’t far from  being blissful. Marriage is honourable; It’s a good thing. The word of God says, He that findeth a wife find a good thing; two are better than one, it isn’t good for a man to be alone. A tension free (hitch free) marriage answers to God’s favour.

Proverbs 18:22 KJV
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing , and obtaineth favour of the Lord .

Genesis 2:18 KJV
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Remember, you’re what you think; if you think that marriage is a relationship between cat and rat (as a bachelor) that is how it’s going to be when you’re married.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

If Jesus Christ could manage His relationship with the twelve disciples without a fight; I don’t see any reason why a marriage of a believer  should be filled with incessant arguments and fighting. If I don’t fight as a bachelor; marriage should be able to take me far away from it.

Most good things are not beautiful most beautiful things are

Life is a choice; a marriage without Christ will be full of crises. Choose wisely today! Never choose to marry a  guy or a lady just because of his or her beauty. Beauty without wisdom is destruction. Be wise!!

In our culture, many men who are controlled by their parents; whatever their mother says is the final: This has been the reason why many marriages are unsettled today. He is an adult; but he can’t make decision of his own because he lacks authority over the issues of life.

Listen to me: If you choose not to abide in Christ today; you will be gathered by people like firewood and casted into the fire for destruction (you will be mishandled by fellows humans).

John 15:5-6 KJV
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. [6] 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 the fire, and they are burned.

Finally, secured you marriage in Christ; God’s principles are the best. Let the word of God be the yardstick of measurement. By so doing, your marriage will be free from any form  pressure and attack.

 

 

The fear of God


The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom

From the scripture, we were told that the fear of God is the point where wisdom starts from.

Proverbs 1:7 KJV
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

This word hit me like a thunderbolt. “Servitude is a product of foolishness.” They don’t make  fools  kings (only the wise are made kings). Wisdom is to know the right to do and do it.

Isaiah 33:6 KJV
And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.

Wisdom is the stability this time that we are now(if you lack wisdom in this era, you will crumble to the floor). It’s my prayer that you won’t sink in life.

Hear this: Christianity without demarcation will not stand the test of time. You can’t beat them by joining them – you will remain under them. The day of judgement is coming when the sheep will be separated from the goats.

Malachi 3:16-18 KJV
Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it , and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord , and that thought upon his name. [17] And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. [18] Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

My dear readers, please be different. Choose to be different. Things that will impress you won’t expand you, things that will expand you won’t impress you. God doesn’t speak to impress people, He speaks to expand people.

 

You can't beat them by joining them, you will remain under them

 

Wait a minute, God saw this dogged determination in this three Hebrew boys that they wouldn’t bow down for any thin god expect the greatest God that they had known and God heartbeat was like “I must rescue my children today.” Did you know what happened? He delivered them.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. [17] If it be so , our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. [18] But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Listen to me: because others are doing it doesn’t mean that you should be doing it. The fear of God is your bail out in this generation.  Joseph flee fornication and he became a prime minister. Daniel was faultless and remained relevant during His time. Get this straight: you can’t fear God and be useless.

Since the days of the Patriarchal until now, those who have  reigned in life are those who fear God  (Men that carry heart for Christ). Hates whatever God hates; disapproves whatever God disapproves. This is the secret of rest.

It’s a restless world, it’s the jet set age. Whether consciously and unconsciously even believers are caught up in the web. Only those who will abide in Jesus by obeying His commandments will be at peace.

The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom (very correct).

 

 

The right words


How forcible are right words

How forcible are right words but what does your arguing reprove?” Job.6:25

In this kingdom, there is no room for arguments. There is no room for disputing. Someone may ask How do I approach God? Approach God without complains. God hates fault finders. God hates grumblers.

“Neither  murmur ye  as some of  them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” 1.Cor.10:10

Approach God with obedience. In most cases what God will tell you to do might look too simple or stupid. Even if it seems too simple or stupid, do it.

“And His mother said unto the servant whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.” Jn.2:5

When they needed wine, He told them to bring water, He used the launch of a lad to feed multitudes.

“There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes, but what are they among many.” Jn.6:9

Obedience is the master key to all the blessings of God.

Take Peter as a case study, Peter struggled with his business all the night and achieved no result. Until Peter obeyed God’s instruction, Peter’s net breaking harvest was not in view.

“And Simon answering said unto Him, master; we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing……And when they had this done(obedience), they in closed a great multitudes of fishes; and their net break.” (Lk.5:5-6)

Approach God with thanksgiving. Come to the presence of God with praises on your lips.  Be happy. If you are not joyful you will be fretful. Approach God with fasting and prayer. Fasting is not an advice neither an admonition. Fasting is a commandment.

When ye fast” Mat.6:9. 

There are some mountains that would not be made plain until you fast.

“Howbeith this kind goeth not but by prayer and fasting.” Mat.17:31

Don’t ever come to God with murmurings. Those who murmured in the wilderness were all consumed by the wicked. Murmurers are programmed for destruction.

“Do all things without murmurings and disputing.” Phi.2:14.

“Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” 1.Cor.10:10

 

Approach God with faith. Faith is our purchasing power in the miraculous market. Life cannot be beautiful more than your faith’s level.

The elements of faith demands that you must cast down all mind debris, idiosyncrasies and negative and cultural  orientation. They are by-products of the wicked. It requires that you speak inline with what you believe with bold declaration. For instance, “I can never be poor” “I can never be sicked” etc.

Hmmm! Right words are right words. When God was making the covenant of greatness with Abraham, He did not expect him to actually see all his seeds(children) with his naked eyes, God must be speaking of another kind of eyes, the imaginative faculty. If you can see it you can have it. A future that you can’t picture don’t expect to be featured in it. Whatever that you can see(picture) from Genesis to Revelation can be yours. Your mind can either break you or make you. Picture the positive and speaks the positive. You are what you say.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21.

You are what you think.

“As he thinketh in his heart, so he is.” Prov.23:7

Once upon a time, there was an ugly situation on the earth. Darkness reigned that God needed a change of situation. What was God’s approach? He called out light. Light emitted darkness. Light swallowed up darkness. It dispelled the dark area of the planet.  If God could use this approach to turn the negative tide around, then you and I have no choice than follow the same step.

 

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep…..and God said, let there by light: and there was light.” Gen.1:3-4

Everybody gets what they see. Life answers to seeing. You can’t see hunger today and wake to see a life of abundance. This is divine setting. God cannot break this principle because of you.

“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever.” Gen.13:15

Right words are right words. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Never waste your time with an argumentator.

 

 

God’s Integrity


God has integrity

God integrity is at stake when you obey His commandments and not seeing the results.

Until you fulfill commandments don't expect His promises

 

God is more faithful than us. Don’t question God, question yourself. Don’t blame God, blame yourself.

 

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Num.23:19

 

The scripture can’t be broken – not even by God. “If he call them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken.” Jn.10:35

God

 

God doesn’t owe anybody anything, you owe God obedience to His instructions. God is an instructor. Until you subscribe to His instructions, all the blessings as promised are not in view.

 

“If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure.” Job.36:11.

 

Jesus the Jesus – who has Holy spirit without measure – had to obey His father before He was enthroned.

 

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient into death, even unto death of the cross. Wherefore God also highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every other name.” Phil.2:7-8

 

Jesus is our perfect example, if Jesus had to obey God’s instruction before he could be enthroned, then you and I have no choice than to do the same.

 

You can be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow.

 

Obedience is our surest bailout in these hard times. Peter struggled all the night and caught nothing but as he plugged into the frequency of obedience, he had a supernatural business breakthrough – a net breaking harvest. Many businesses are collapsing today as a result of disobedience to the “thiting” instruction.  There is corporate thite that you must pay.  Jesus said, I must be about my father business (Lk.2:49). Serving God is a big time business. Until it become a must, don’t expect the rewards.

 

Nothing of value is for free

 

And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they in closed a great multitudes of fishes: and their net break.” Lk.5:5-6.

 

Many Christians – though born again – are toiling today as a result of disobedience.

 

Be God greedy, live ready. Be greedy of everything that serving God offers and you will see that serving God will no longer become a burden for you. You will become addicted to serving when you understood what serving God guarantees.

 

You don’t need to be coerced or forced before you out the word of God to work. I’m educating you today, be scriptural enlightened. Your light quality equals your life quality. God’s people are in a state of perishing due to ignorance. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

 

I’m charging you today to be responsible. Live right. It always pays off.

Not

 

Pray this prayer as the psalmist did. Father, in the name of Jesus open the eyes of my understanding and grant me the grace to live my life to please you.

 

Life is a choice


 

Life is a choice

My father can take care of me – I’m not talking about my biological father. I mean my father in heaven. Thank God, I have not lost my son ship ties with my father.

My father is God, I am god. John.10:35. My father is rich, I can’t be poor. My father is healthy and He is the healer, I can’t be sick.

My daddy is the wiser than the wisest, smarter than the smartest, richer than the richest. Whatsoever that can’t be found in Jesus, can’t be found me.

I shared Jesus’ gene. I possess the character of Jesus. Failure is alien to Jesus, as well as sickness, poverty, intimidations, shame, reproach, begging, and borrowing. Darkness is alien to my kind.

 

I declared this for myself. Declare yours and be free from the shackles of the enemy.

 

 

Soul Hunter


He that win soul is wise

God has no problem in blessing us. He created the universe – out of nothing – and everything inside of it.

 

God is God. He doesn’t change. Until He sees our investments Into His kingdom, the blessings are out of view. Our God is a God of order. He basically operates by carrying out order.

 

For instance, until we become an addicted thiter, our financial enthronement is farfetched.

 

“But thou shalt remember the lord thy God. For it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this days” – Deu.8:18

 

The covenant platform of GIVING and RECEIVING is our only bailout in this era of  economic holocaust. If you are not an addicted giver, you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activities.

 

He is more faithful than you and I. DON’T BLAME GOD, blame yourself. DON’T QUESTION GOD, question yourself.

 

It is good to know about God, it is better to practice about God. Wisdom is applied knowledge. Wisdom is to know the right thing to do from the word of God and do it.

 

The word that enters us will not move an ant. It’s the word that we enter that cause things to happen. Until you and I dive into the word of God by doing what it has instructed, we should not expect the blessings.

 

Listen to this: only those that are wise will scale heights in our generation. Servitude is a sign of foolishness. The wise are made kings.

 

According to the scripture, he that winneth soul is wise. In other word, he that winneth not soul is foolish. This sound unfair, but that is what the scripture says.
