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!

Steps of Faith into Your Destiny – The Joshua/Caleb Generation

The journey through the promised land for Israel was a powerful illustration of how God’s people then as now go through the journey of life with a cycle of challenges, problems and obstacles some of which seem insurmountable.

Every step of the way through the promised land was a step of faith, at times their faith was so weak that they murmured, many resorted to idolising a golden calf and some did not even make it to the promised land.

In Joshua 3:3-4 when the LORD told them to follow after the Ark of the Covenant carried by the priests, the Israelites did not know where they were going, as they had never been that way before. They therefore did not know how close or how far they were to the promised land. They had to put their trust totally in God who alone knew the way.

Likewise without God’s leading we do not know what is ahead of us. Without Him we have no idea at what stage of our breakthrough we are in or how long we still need to wait until we receive what we believe God has promised us in personal prophecy or through His Word.

In the wilderness journey the Israelites were led by a pillar of fire by night and cloud by day and received constant counsel and instruction as guidance by God through Moses and then Joshua, as New Covenant believers in our journey of life, we have access to the revelatory realm of God through the indwelling Holy Spirit and gifts of the Spirit. We cannot and should not underestimate the importance of the Holy Spirit in our lives to draw us closer to God so that we know Him as well as His will and direction for our lives.

When we trust God, we are willing to obey Him and do so by taking steps of faith through the leading of the Holy Spirit in the direction in which He is leading us.

The greatest steps of faith based on our trust in God we will need to take are at the beginning or at the brink of our undertaking, be it a journey, a new job, a project or a ministry.

I sense this juncture is the point at which Satan reinforces his natural and spiritual armies against our progression, attempting to sabotage our plans and therefore these are times when we should strengthen ourselves through intensified or increased prayer, fasting and praise as well as scriptural meditation.

CROSSING THE RED SEA

An illustration of the intensified danger at the commencement of a journey with the intention of stopping it: when the Israelites had just left Egypt they thought the final plague was enough to keep Pharaoh from pursuing them but they were greatly mistaken for he mobilized his horsemen with their chariots and pursued them! The Israelites were terrified as they realised they had no where to turn, with Pharaoh and his army closing in behind them and the Red Sea before them.

But they served a God who is omnipotent and omniscient. He is the sovereign one Adonai, who always has the last word on any matter, for He is the creator and controller of the universe. God foreknew this would happen and devised a miraculous plan of deliverance which would be one of the all time miraculous testimonies the world has ever heard of and would be recounted from generation to generation. Right before their eyes the Red Sea parted and they were able to cross over safely, however Pharaoh’s horsemen and chariots drowned.

“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him” (Is. 59:19b)

CROSSING THE JORDAN

“The priests who carried the Ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan while all Israel crossed on dry ground, until all the nation had finished crossing the Jordan.” (Joshua 3:17NASB)

The nation of Israel had come to the end of their journey and their last hurdle was the crossing of the Jordan River which would take them into the promised land. Here we find another water path as the Red Sea which if but for God would have served as a great obstacle to them moving forward to attain His promises.

As with the Red Sea, the Jordan River (Joshua 3:13) was parted supernaturally by God for them to walk across.

It is worth noting how the Lord kept the waters of the Jordan River on one side; the priests carrying “the Ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan” until all the Israelites had finished crossing it.

At the brink of the Israelites’ entry into the promised land, this imagery speaks louder than words and is very powerful; The Ark and the priests carrying it, speak of God’s presence and “Right Hand” or intercessory might in the midst of obstacles so that a way is made for deliverance or release. It also makes a statement that nothing, not even the laws of nature, can withstand God’s power of intervention for the sake of His people.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth;…I will even make a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.” (Isa.43:19 KJV)

God is today speaking in the same way to us. Our Royal High Priest Jesus and the indwelling Holy Spirit are not only leading the way, but also making intercession for us in the midst of every situation so that a way is made for us to enter into our promises.

God therefore strategises to take us through every hurdle safely. Our part is to trust and obey for the manifestation of a glorious outcome.

TRUST, OBEY AND TAKE STEPS OF FAITH INTO YOUR PROMISES

In both cases, at the beginning of the journey through the wilderness and at the end so as to enter the promised land, the Israelites were blessed with the miracle of the parting of waters so that they could walk across.

The LORD was saying “the greater the danger you are facing, or is advancing behind you, the greater the miracle I will outwork to deliver you and bring you to the place I am sending you”.

How easy is it to cross over parted waters? It takes great trust in the one who parted it to decide to obey them and take steps of faith to walk across, knowing that they will keep it parted until you get to the other side.

The Israelites who left Israel were not the same crowd who entered the promised land apart from two, Joshua and Caleb. God made sure that the crowd who left Egypt with Joshua and Caleb did not receive their inheritance, instead they died in the wilderness. Why? because of their unbelief.

Joshua and Caleb represented a generation who had a different spirit, in other words they trusted God to do what was impossible to man. They were people of great faith in God and fearless of the giants they would encounter in the promised land (Numbers 11). It is therefore this generation that God chose to enter the promised land. When we trust God, we are fearless, quick to obey and activate our faith in Him so that He is glorified. These are the qualities of the Joshua and Caleb generation, qualities necessary to receive and sustain the promises of God.

Friends, let us examine our hearts today and ask ourselves, are we among the Joshua & Caleb generation in these last days before the return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ?

Is there anything “old ways of Egypt” in us i.e. mindsets, attitudes, presumptions, secret faults that must die or be overcome so that we can truly be consecrated unto God as true worshippers.

It is never too late to re-address areas of our lives and put things right so that we attain the fullness of our inheritance in God through Jesus Christ. God reveals to redeem.

Dear Father

Thank you for the promises and destiny you have for me.

Forgive me when I have not trusted you or I have been fearful to take steps of faith according to your word.

I am thankful that as you are all knowing, you have a plan or strategy to overcome every obstacle or danger on my behalf by your mighty power.

I ask that you would help me to stay in that place of trusting you completely with every decision and direction I desire to take knowing that you will redirect my course if it is not your will.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed.

In the Humble Son, We see Father God

google pic

Born again Christians who are truly committed to living a life in God have embraced this season of Christmas as a time to meditate on the great love God bestowed upon us when He came in the person of Jesus Christ to save us from sin.

Jesus’ humble and lowly background and nature was a deliberate plan of God and from it we are able to know and understand the nature and attributes of God, some of which are:

1. HE IS EXALTED BUT HUMBLE (NOT PROUD).

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” (Phil. 2:6-8 KJV).

The creator, God almighty came into the world as Jesus born to humble parents who could not afford to rent a house when he was born but rather sought accommodation in an inn.

The inn was full. For the time that his parents stayed in Bethlehem, baby Jesus (God as man) was placed in a manger which is a feeding trough for livestock. No doubt his parents slept close by in the humble and inconspicuous abode where this manger was which is likely to have been a place where animals resided.

What is God saying to us? The fact that God in the person of Jesus came to identify with humanity is clear, but the emphasis is on the fact that he was one of those that people pass by on the streets without giving a second glance; He was through his parentage of a low status or ranked insignificant in society.

Brethren, God could have chosen a well to do family even from among the descendants of David or Aaron as Jesus’ parents rather than Joseph (David’s line) and Mary (Aaron’s line), however God did not.

If Jesus’ parents were well off or rich they would never have taken refuge in an abode where animals were kept especially not with their baby!

Even Mary as she sang unto the Lord, expressed herself as one of “low estate” being blessed of the Lord and therefore “from henceforth generations shall” call her blessed (Luke 1:47-48 KJV).

2. HE RESISTS THE PROUD BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE (James 4:6 KJV).

As Jesus grew up, he trained to be a carpenter (a humble, manual job) not a Rabbi educated by sitting at the feet of a Rabbi of his day. However he had God’s wisdom from a very young age and is said to have taught as a boy who had authority not as the scribes (Matt. 7:29 KJV).

Brethren, there is nothing wrong with being educated to degree or even doctorate level, as long as you do not think that because you are well learned what you know grants you enough wisdom so that you do not need to seek the wisdom of God.

The greatness of God’s wisdom is incomparable to man’s because “This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans,…” (1 Corinth.1:25 KJV)

Jesus is the personification of God’s wisdom. If we have Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, abide in him and he in us, we have access to God so as to know his ways (wisdom) as we gain knowledge of Him through His word and by supernatural revelation. He is also well able to give us understanding of His wisdom and knowledge as we abide in Him.

3.GOD LOVES HIS CREATION, REGARDLESS OF GENDER, RACE, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CLASS.

Jesus grew up among the poor and lowly, therefore he was used to being surrounded by such people who included prostitutes and drunkards or those regarded as insignificant.

Therefore in his public ministry he did not shun such people and had the reputation of being among them. Jesus came for the LOST: His notable disciples and followers were

a) fishermen. This profession was a manual “lowly” one.

b) females who were ranked as second class citizens in relation to men and could not be educated. A group of women were with Jesus when he travelled from town to town.

c) Samaritans, who were of Assyrian and Israelite ancestry were despised by Jews – the first being the Samaritan woman Jesus deliberately met at the well. She received Jesus as Lord and Saviour, evangelised and many accepted Christ. She is mentioned in history as haven been a travelling missionary.

The aforementioned are examples of the lost of any gender, race and social status Jesus came to seek and save (Luke 19:10).

Jesus came for the MEEK: The woman of the Alabaster jar of oil (Matt.26:7) who anointed Jesus’ feet exemplifies the meek (humble) who will inherit the kingdom of heaven. She loved much because she had been forgiven much.

Humility before God is expressed in our actions towards Him because we acknowledge and give thanks to Him for being the source of our changed lives to the glory of God.

God is in Christ reconciling the back to Himself and He has committed unto you and I the ministry of reconciliation (John 3:16/2 Corinth. 5:19).

Brethren, this means whatever our gender, race, social or economic class background God has chosen us to be instruments of reconciliation of mankind with God. Knowing God and His attributes through Christ is the means through which we excell in the calling as ministers of reconciliation.

My prayer is that our spiritual eyes will open daily to the truths in God’s Word so that our walk with God and each other will reflect the peace and love of God.

Out of the abode of poverty, lowliness and humility our Messiah was born and arose, so that out m of the abyss of oppression, depression and lack we are reborn and arise, to receive withheld gifts of God, “beauty for ashes,the oil of joy for mourning,

the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness”that we “might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” (Quotes Isaiah 61:3 KJV)

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed.

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!

Verse (Luke 4:32) & Exhortation


Prioritising the Word of God personified

As New Covenant believers, our priority is the Word of God, the only way to God is through Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Word that came to dwell among us (John chapter 1).

Indeed as a youth, Yeshua manifested the wisdom and stature of God as he discussed with the religious leaders and as we read in Luke 4:32, he astonished the hearers of His teachings. While he performed miracles, Yeshua consistently taught and he is therefore the only source of Elohim God’s truth that sets free (John 8:31-32) for his disciples.

May we live lives meditating on the Word, the scriptures that is, and the life of Yeshua himself who is the Word personified, doing our best to live as he lived in humble obedience to Father.

In addition, let us not forsake fellowship with the Spirit of God for He is God, His power that guides, guards us and reminds us of the teachings of Yeshua, our Messiah and LORD.

Blessings to you and yours,

Today’s Verse: Galatians 6:7 & Exhortation

Brethren let us always remember that we reap what we sow and while stopping to think about the consequences of our actions is not often easy or should I say automatic, it is necessary. Necessary, because it can save as so much pain or turmoil.

It will also save us unnecessary time wastage.I have had my struggles in this area and learnt from many mistakes and some of you can relate. God is faithful and knows our hearts are often in the right place, desiring to reap for Him what He has sown in and through us.

I can testify that when I have been obedient to God’s Word such as forgiven and prayed for those who hurt or afflict me and put others first I have reaped natural and spiritual blessings.I can also testify that He has come through for me many times and outworked all things for my good (Romans 8:38), when things could have gone from bad to worse. Think about your past and present state, what can you testify about the goodness of God especially when you have sown what pleases Him?

I agree that we don’t always know what blessings are rewards for what we have done, but sometimes we can discern outcomes that are tied to our acts of kindness or obedience to God’s Word.

We have a God who is patient with us and will help us in our weakness when we call on Him. Praise Him!! Blessings to you & yours

Mended & Raised Up for His Glory

I woke up one morning thinking “Jesus mends nets”. I remembered that Jesus called James and John at the time when they were with their father in their fishing boat mending their nets (Math.4:21).Jesus’ purpose was to “mend” their lives by making them his disciples so that they would in turn “mend” other people’s lives, by becoming fishers of men. He is continuing God the Father’s “Mending Nets” business today through the power of the Holy Spirit in all the earth and at work within born again believers.

What do “nets” symbolically mean here? Our capabilities, mindsets, attitudes and emotions that have been afflicted or tattered by the enemy, whether before we become Christians or even during our Christian walk. This could have been either at home, school, church or work.

Some of these afflictions are from childhood through to adulthood because of what people did to us, also how we responded as well as what we were taught which has influenced our way of thinking, attitudes and understanding. Jesus came to do what he saw the Father doing or what God gave him the authority to do. His “mending nets” business is clearly expressed and summarised in Isaiah 61:1-3:

“1The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. 2He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the LORD’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. 3To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning,festive praise instead of despair.  In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. “(NLT)..

Such people, having been “mended” will be called in service as “menders” or rebuilders. As Jesus, their destinies are also expressed as follows: Isaiah 61:4:
4They will rebuild the ancient ruins, repairing cities destroyed long ago. They will revive them, though they have been deserted for many generations. (NLT).

Another scripture that comes to mind is Acts 10:38
“And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” (NLT).

In addition to healing the sick, the “Good” is all that Father God told Jesus to do in order to “mend” lives such as teachings (i.e perfecting the Law of Moses, how to pray), deliverance of the demon possessed and spending time with society’s rejects so that they know they are loved and valued. Jesus’ “mending” (restoring or rebuilding) business as we know is necessary for us to be saved and then grow to maturity as children of God, thus capable of fulfilling our God given identities and destinies. We each have a part to play in the Body of Christ and the world at large. Some people have found their God given purpose in life, some are on the way to doing so and others don’t have a clue. There are also those who think they do one day, but then they are not sure the next day!

Whatever category you fall into, know that God is at work in you however it may feel like or appear, to take you to even greater depths in your relationship with Him than you are experiencing right now. I sense God wants you to know that as long as you stay in His Word through study and obedience daily, you will receive all that He has for you and will fulfil your God given purpose. He will abide with you as you abide with Him (John 14:21,23).

The heavenly portals of revelation knowledge, wisdom and understanding will be open to you because of your obedience and faithfulness. This is my encouragement to you as I do to myself, that you would live a life of worship, singing praises unto God in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Pray fervently for all things at all times, always be determined to trust God giving thanks regardless of the circumstance and do all you can to live at peace with others, loving them as God loves you.

From experience, I know forgiveness is difficult, but if you are struggling be honest before God about the pain you have suffered and tell Him how you are finding it difficult to forgive but because you desire to obey His command that you forgive you choose to do so and ask for His supernatural power to enable this desire to be a reality. Nothing is impossible for our God,
Having “mended” us through salvation and raised us up, God is always on the look out for tears to our “nets”, the sooner we allow Him to mend then the better because the effective fulfilment of our mission is dependant on our wholeness.

Happiness is Knowing…because of Emmanuel no adverse situation is permanent

(prefer to listen? Click on picture above)

Jesus said to his disciples that he will suffer many things at the hands of the chief priests and Pharisees and be slain but he will rise again in three days (Luke 9:22). His death was not permanent Selah!

Jesus is also saying to his present day disciples that every deadness in absolutely any area of our lives, is not permanent.

Praise the Lord! But wait. There is a condition and one that is beyond confessing with our mouth and believing in our hearts that Jesus Christ is our LORD and SAVIOUR (Romans 10:9-10).

In order for this transition from adversity to consistent blessedness marked by answered prayers and supernatural peace and intimacy with God, the act of sacrificial living is required. This is summed up in Jesus’ words “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.” (Luke 9:23-26 KJV).

Are we ready to be bold witnesses of Christ in a world that hates him and suffer hatred, mockery, persecution and even death in Christlikeness?

A life lived with Christ at the centre inevitably means trouble in the world, but no situation is permanent!

Brethren, let us be reminded of God’s numerous words of comfort to His children that even though we are in the world we are not of it (John 15:19) and also that we will not be harmed when we go through adversities likened to “water” or “fire” (Isaiah 43:2) because God is with us.

In addition, the psalmist testifies of what is the entitlement of all who belong to God:

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. (Psalms 138:7 ESV)”.

The seasons of life are forever changing as the times in a day and climatic seasons. When evening came, Jesus said to his disciples “Let us pass over unto the other side”(Mark 4:35 KJV)”.

The crossing over to the other side in the above verse by God’s decree was not in the morning nor the afternoon but in the evening. The evening was the appointed time for the miraculous!

Each of us has seasonal miraculous times in life and our ability to attain our miracles from God depends on whether we will decide to “pass over to the other side” with Christ. Will we allow him to lead us in the power of the Holy Spirit to where he wants us to be physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally?

When we are in Christ, the “other side” is a place of provision, opposite to the place of lack. The “other side” is a place of peace opposite to the place of turmoil. Praise God that when we abide in Christ no adverse situation in life is permanent!

In the transitional period to the “other side” of God’s blessed promises we are often tested; Will we forget Christ is in our “boat” of life and start panicking? When he appears to be “asleep” or not present, do we tend to doubt him and like his disciples cry out “..do you not care that we are perishing?”(Mark 4:38 ESV).

Remember Jesus said “us” when he said to the disciples “Let us pass over to the other side” (Mark 4:35 KJV). He will not send us anywhere, where he is not willing to go with us. Jesus Chris is Emmanuel (meaning God with us) (Matt.1:23).

Brethren, this is why Christ, not wanting to leave his disciples as orphans following his ascension, prayed to Father for the Spirit also known as Comforter to abide with us forever” (John 14:16).

The Holy Spirit within a believer in Christ ensures adverse situations are not permanent because the Spirit is the same that rose Christ from the dead and gives us the powerful life of God in their mortal bodies (Romans 8:11).

The Holy Spirit indeed testifies of Jesus Christ (John 15:26) who said

“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live” (John 11:25 ESV).

Precious saints, let us give thanks and praise to God that because Emmanuel lives we live in the seasonal realm of the “pass over”.

“Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:5 NLT) Hallelujah!

Thank You Yeshua!

Thank you that you are my resurrection and life, Yeshua.

Thank you that you died and rose again that I might have abundant and eternal life.

Thank you for your broken body and shed blood because you live, I live forever more.

Thank you that you put the fact that you are God aside and came as sinful man though without sin, so that through death, you would destroy him who has the power of death, the devil and release those who are subject to the devil through infirmity and affliction.

Thank you for being a “merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people”

Thank you, Yeshua!

Scriptural Inspiration: John 11:25, Hebrews 2, John 10:10

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).
