God’s Faithfulness to the Fully Committed


When your heart is fully committed to God, every step you take will inevitably be guided and guarded by Him.

“The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him…” (2 Chronicles 16:9 KJV)

These are two points to remind you of God’s faithfulness to the fully committed, not just by their words but their deeds as well:

1. “Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. Narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.” (Matt. 7:13-14 KJV).

The LORD will make sure that you are steered back onto his “narrow” pathway if you should stray away from it at any point due to affliction.

The Lord will be your help in times of trouble to make this possible.
The Psalmist (46:1-3) says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we won’t be afraid, though the earth changes, though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas; though its waters roar and are troubled, though the mountains tremble with their swelling. Selah”

As one who is in fellowship with His Holy Spirit, He will also give you the ability to discern what is of Him and what is not so that you know when you are on a path He has not led you on.

“So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.” (Gal. 5:16-17 NLT)

God’s will is that you live and walk guided by the Holy Spirit not by your own carnal longings and desires which is under the control of Satan who entices the flesh to take the “wide gate” or “broad way”. This pathway is pleasing to the flesh or carnal nature because they offer what appear to be easy and quick benefits, in the long term however one realises that the so called benefits were short lived, resulted in affliction or heartache and discouragement.

2. The Lord will ensure that you part with those you are in alliance with who
a)do not have the same call of God as you do.
b)are likely to be a hindrance to you one way or another. This is because they could be agents of conflict or contention directly or through others associated with them.

Abraham (then called Abram) had left Haran (Gen 12) with his nephew Lot, travelled with him to Egypt where Abraham’s riches including livestock had increased. Together Abraham and Lot had a large amount of livestock and there came a time that living together and grazing their animals proved difficult as the land was crowded as other communities lived there as well. In addition their herdsmen had began to quarrel among themselves. Abraham took the wise decision to separate from Lot saying
“..Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if [thou wilt take] the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if [thou depart] to the right hand, then I will go to the left…” (Gen. 13:9 KJV).

When we study scriptures closely, it is evident that Abraham’s call by God out of his country, Haran (Gen. 12) did not include his relatives. He was married at the time so his wife was included. It was therefore not surprising that a time came for him and Lot to part and what better time than when the land they occupied could not hold their combined possessions.

Today let us pray, asking the LORD to reveal to us if we are aligned to the wrong person, people or group and the wise steps we should take to dissociate ourselves from those He exposes. We need to take care that when God tells us to do something or go a particular way we are not involving anyone He has not told us to partner with.

Brothers and sisters, when we are fully committed to the LORD, we must partner with Him as He guides and guards our lives and this means we are to walk in obedience and refused to compromise with evil. As long as we know what the truth is according to God’s Word, we should refuse at all costs to live by half truths and lies.
” said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32 KJV)

Today, let us resolve to continue living as dedicated soldiers of Christ marching on fully committed to our commander in chief, the Lord Jesus Christ, helping others to stay in line or line up with us as is the will of God.

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

God is Always True to His Word  

I don’t know what you are waiting on the LORD for, but I have a message for you today: I sense the LORD is saying continue abiding in Him, trusting Him and He will bring it to pass His WAY.
“I have spoken it, I will bring it to pass” Isaiah 46:11.

In 1994 I sensed the LORD saying that He has called me to “write and bear witness” of Him, six years later in 2000 at a prophetic conference one of the prophets prophesied that God has called me to write, He will give me what to write and that I will write many books. I praise God that I am walking fully in this prophetic Word, with my first book due to be released on 30th April (now on pre-order).

Therefore whether the Word was given directly to you, through a world renowned or seasoned Prophet or a fellow believer in Christ who hears from God, it will surely come to pass. Our God cannot lie and His Word is life giving, transforming and sets in motion as well as propels His children forward into the fulfilment of His predestined plans.

As we know God does not speak for the sake of speaking; God’s Word whether the written Word (Bible) or spoken prophetic Word is “Alive and Active”  (Heb. 4:12) and is therefore bound to bear fruit or be productive for His glory. 
These two scriptures among others illustrate this point very well: 
1 Samuel 3:19 – God did not let none of the Words He spoke through Prophet Samuel go unfulfilled in his lifetime. 
Isaiah 55:10-11 – 10“The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry.

11It is the same with my word I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.(NLT).

So dear Brethren, let us always be expectant with joy in relation to what God has in store for us. We may know only some of His plans for us personally but there is much more; 
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT).

In addition the Bible is full of promises for God’s children; it is time to consciously receive them by faith and declare them over our personal lives if we are not doing so already.

Be encouraged! 
“You shall live in Joy & Peace..”. (Is. 55:12).

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!
