You Are All that Matters

What is life worth
if I focus on trivial factors and concern myself with mere structures
but ignore that You are all that matters?

What will I become if I am conformed to the dictates of this world and
I am intimate with evil doers but ignore that You are all that matters?

You are the engine that sustains me along destiny path,
the lifeboat that keeps me afloat, the air that I breath and the ever-flowing
fountain that quenches my thirst.

Indeed You, Yahweh are all that matters.

I See Your Face

I see your face ablaze through the darkened window pane of my heart,
full of sorrow and pain.
I see your face aglow emitting rays of hope as I walk on life’s shaky tightrope.

In life’s next phase, you will be there I know,
your face ablaze and aglow as yesterday, today and always.

A New Day

Woman-Contemplating-On-Mountain

At this mountain top, never do I cease to see your face glistening as the sun.

In past times, I must admit I did the sprint so that far from you I run.

In present times, my once static frown has morphed into a smile of one having so much fun.

Pray, keep me anointed as I upscale greater heights to fulfil my mandate through the Son of Man.

Today’s Verse (Romans 8:28-29) & Exhortation

Whatever happens in the believer in Christ’s life is for a purpose that is ultimately for God’s glory. Do you agree?

I have countless testimonies of this and I often wonder how my life would have turned out if I did not have Christ when I have thought “wow… life is so hard even when I am living a Christ centred life!”

May we be thankful daily that God works all things out for the good of those who love Him. Those who are actually foreknown or predestined by Him to be conformed to the image of Christ. It is worth remembering also that He does not always take us out of adverse situations, but He walks through them with us.This is how He is with us as a heavenly Father, if He were to do everything for us, immediately take us out of every perilous situation then we would never learn a thing!

May we see every crisis as an opportunity to get closer to God through Christ and allow Him to teach us more about the principals of the Kingdom of God and how to be bold and overcome in difficult times while resting in Him.

If but for the birth of Christ…

If but for the birth of Christ where would we be?

Knowing him is the greatest thing that happened to us, his Saints we will always be. When Christ our Saviour was born, the light in our lives, God planned to turn on. No more slaves to sin are we, but now among the chosen few. God in Christ is faithful it is true, always ready for men to renew.

As friends of Christ his mysteries to us he imparts,
not only for us to flourish and grow fat,
but that we will with zeal, the gospel to impart.
To seal many in Christ and soften hardened hearts.

Scriptural Inspiration: John 14:1-5, John 14:11-14, Isaiah 9:6, John 15:-14-16

“1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not…” (John 14:1-5 KJV)

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)

“11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 14:11-14 KJV)

TODAY’S VERSE (John 8:31-32) & EXHORTATION

I gave thanks and praise to God for He sent Jesus as the Word made flesh, for us to have a tangible example as to how to live our lives according to His will.

Jesus is the Word of Truth through whom we gain knowledge of the truth about who God is and who we are predestined to be as children of God.

Are you a disciple of Jesus? If so then you can partake of divine revelation in regards to God’s truth to overcome every lie about who you are and the world because abiding in Him results in revelation knowledge directly communicated to us by Father God and obtained through meditation on scriptures,

May we continue to abide in the Word, be students of the bible so as to know the truth and be set free from curses and deception in Jesus’ mighty name Amen!

Cycle of the Beloved’s life

Beloved of God, the cycle of abuse, cycle of offence are cycles to refuse.

The cycle of restraint, cycle of defeat are cycles to resist.

For he who saved you, Yeshua your Lord has planned for you peaks and troughs for victorious outcomes to the glory of God.

Up times are times to praise God with hands raised and doing His bidding, with hearts grateful and testifying.

Down times are not times to rot but to access what you’ve got and to thank God, He has saved and blessed you who was once lost.

The cycle of peace, cycle of hope, are cycles of God to embrace. The cycle of sanctification, cycle of breakthrough, are cycles of God’s restoration.

Beloved of God, in the cycles of life “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”(Romans 8:28).
