A Miracle-filled Life is Yours!

A Miracle-filled Life is Yours!

Sometimes we may be going through difficulties and not know where to turn. Let us be reminded that we have a God who is “our refuge & strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psa.46:1). He also said in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5).

He is the same God who miraculously prevented Daniel and his friends from burning in the furnace (Daniel 6) and who answered the prayer of the saints on behalf of Peter so that he was miraculously released from prison (Acts 12). He is also the same God who came to earth as Christ through a miraculous birth, so that the inheritance of His people Israel would be extended to anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Saviour it is not too late, there is a miraculous life awaiting you!

He is also the God who never forgets your faithfulness to Him; many have toiled and laboured and some times wonder when they will either be healed from a particular sickness or receive answers to certain prayers which would change their situation for the better.

In fact some of you have been waiting on God through prayer for the fulfilment of prophecies spoken over your lives. “When LORD! when” is your desperate cry! But God is saying there are things that have to take place first and as you stay close to Him, He will give you understanding. Patience and perseverance in the place of worship regardless of the circumstance is what God is calling us all to.

Be encouraged today! In Christ a miraculous life is guaranteed!

In Him:

In the holy place

we seek His face,

there He appears to

wipe away our tears.

In our hearts

we call His name,

there flows His fountain

that heals our pain.

In Him

no more tears,

no more pain.

All For His Glory

Whatever I have, it is my desire that it is from the Most High’s hands.

Whatever I do, I pray will be His doing and approved by Him. For I live to give Him all the glory”. DENyamekye

Peter and John had this same desire and prayer as I do when they lived to fulfil their purpose in Christ.

They were without doubt that God was with them. Among other disciples of Jesus, they had received and been baptised in the Holy Spirit (John 20:22, Acts 2:4) and believed Jesus when he said they would do greater works than He did if they believe in Him (John 14:12). Everything they did was for the glory of God in Christ.

Peter and John knew that without Christ they were nothing (John 15:5) and their mission was not to build treasures for themselves on earth (Matt.6:19-20). Instead their heart was knitted with their purpose which was to preach the gospel and perform miracles of healing and deliverance.

This is evidenced in Peter’s response to the cripple at the temple gate called Beautiful. When he asked Peter and John for money Peter replied in humility

“I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” (Acts 3:6 NLT).

They were bold because they exercised their Christ delegated authority and power knowing that whatever they ask in Jesus’ name will be granted to them as He had promised (John 15:7). As they did the works of Christ in his name, Christ gave glory to the Father through them (John 14:13).

After the cripple was healed, Peter knew that he had to give honour and glory to God for performing this miracle of healing when he saw all the people running towards him and John. He had a reverential fear of God and did not for one moment want the crowd to think he and John had any power of their own to heal anyone.

The bible states that Peter “saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd”:

“People of Israel,” he said, “what is so surprising about this? And why stare at us as though we had made this man walk by our own power or godliness? 13For it is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God of all our ancestors—who has brought glory to his servant Jesus by doing this. This is the same Jesus whom you handed over and rejected before Pilate, despite Pilate’s decision to release him.

14You rejected this holy, righteous one and instead demanded the release of a murderer. 15You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. And we are witnesses of this fact!

16“Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes. (Acts 3:12-16NLT).

May God help us all to be as Peter and John as we live to fulfil our God given purpose on earth; Giving him all the glory and praise for every accomplishment however small or large.

Have a blessed day in Christ.

Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Many may be apprehensive and fearful at this time because of so many reports on television and in the newspapers about people being ill, dying or dead because of the coronavirus all over the world.

The sense of panic and uncertainty is worsened still because of the need to be quarantined or practice social distancing and isolation even for those who do not have the disease or manifest symptoms.

Brethren God is with us today as He was with Israel and these comforting words apply to His people now as they did in ancient times;

10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you

Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.

12 You shall seek them and not find them— Those who contended with you. Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ (Isaiah 41:10-13 NKJV).

Specifically in relation to God being the protector of those who are his from danger and plagues, the psalmist states:

“1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. And under His wings you shall take refuge” (Psalm 91:1-4 NKJV).

It has been proven that those who do not have symptoms of the corona virus (covid-19) manifesting to any degree and were later tested positive, were found to have infected those they had socialised with before they tested positive. I read several accounts of this.

Therefore it is important to distance oneself socially as much as possible for lengths of time, especially obeying national guidelines.

This is not only for one’s own sake but for the sake of others; You may not contract the disease or you may only have a mild form of it, but you could infect someone or others with underlying health issues (i.e pneumonia, organ transplant etc…) who are therefore vulnerable. Health professionals have also said the elderly are also more vulnerable to contracting the corona virus.

Let us be honest, at the time of writing, most people have not been tested in places where covid-19 diagnosis, illness and death are increasing in number such as the UK.

We must therefore be selfless and concerned for the well being of others as well as our own.

Instead of being alarmed and critical of the strict measures imposed to prevent the transferal of covid-19, and thinking “surely as a believer in Christ I don’t have to pay any attention to what the government is advising, after all God is with me!”, it is time for those who reason this way to come out of the “spirituality bubble” that resists God given common sense and wisdom.

Certainly there is over reporting and too much focus on the cases and issues surrounding the corona virus, but this is the reality of life. Reporters do the aforementioned for a living and human beings generally focus on issues that affect their everyday life to varying degrees depending on what it is.

Cutting out all the “noise” and living in a “spiritual bubble” of the type described earlier is not only disobedient but dangerous to the health of oneself and others; it is a case of also refusing to advise others sensibly because one refuses sensible advice.

God given common sense and wisdom must be the basis for complying with the governments’ efforts in controlling, preventing and resisting the spread of the coronavirus. If in China where the corona virus started, the strict enforcement of social distancing and quarantining worked to dimish and stop people being affected with covid-19, then other countries imposing the same or similar measures are doing the right thing.

Godly common sense and wisdom calls for accessing the situation realistically and when we do, we are able to see what governments are doing from a biblical perspective. It is not everything the secular unbelieving (in Christ) world does that is apart from Elohim. After all He created human beings, the heavens and earth and is in control of everything.

It is worth knowing or remembering as a believer in Christ or for those interested that social distancing, isolation or quarantine were practiced during biblical times.

There is God (of our Lord Jesus Christ) instructed biblical precedence for social distancing, isolation and quarantine. Therefore disobeying the government is not merely senseless but in effect it is disobeying God the Father’s proven method of ensuring the diseased are healed as well as preventing them from spreading it to others. There is nothing new under the sun!

Some of the scriptures are as follows:


45 “Now the leper on whom the sore is, his clothes shall be torn and his head bare; and he shall cover his mustache, and cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 He shall be unclean. All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He is unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.” (Leviticus 13:45-46 NKJV).

This is a type of current social distancing and isolation measures.

In Numbers 12:1-16 when Miriam got leprosy, God instructed that she be kept isolated outside the camp for seven days. Israel led by Moses complied and they did not continue their journey until she was returned.

This is an act of being quarantined or isolated so that Miriam can recover quickly and she is also prevented from spreading leprosy.

In addition in Numbers 5:1-4, God instructed Moses to tell the children of Israel to put outside the camp those among them that have been defiled. They obeyed. This is what is happening now; those who have tested positive for the corona virus are quarantined.

Brethren, may our lives as faithful warriors for Christ be demonstrated among other ways, in our partnership with our government and nation to combat this common world wide enemy: corona virus. This is the will of God in Christ Jesus.

Happiness is knowing… Our times are in His Hands.

Praise God that “My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.”(Psalm 31:15 KJV).

God knows the times and seasons for everything under the sun and He therefore has a reason for everything that happens to us. Brethren, God will not allow us to suffer more than we can bear.

The Psalmist (Psa.31:15) knew that God was in control and He could trust Him with regards to every situation including delivering him from his enemies and those that persecute him.

Whatever you may be facing or going through, God has gone ahead of you for He knew it would happen anyway. He has a strategy to deliver and restore whatever has been withheld or lost due to evil schemes. He says He will never leave you nor forsake you and that is a fact. Rest assured, God Almighty has a plan that He is outworking, trust Him and it will come to pass.

“11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”(Jer.29:11 KJV).
