Walking with & Believing God

Enoch walked with God, he never saw death.
Abraham believed God, from his loins came blessings so the world would have no dearth.

David walked with God and danced, full of mirth.

Hannah believed God, so from her womb, Samuel, the great prophet, she gave birth.
Let us walk with God, led by the Spirit of Truth.

Let us believe in God, searching the scriptures with the zeal of a sleuth.

Knowing God 

Do you know Your God?
Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits! Do you know your God? The Father of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ? 
No I don’t mean “know about Him” nor what the scriptures say of Him. Yes, hearing about Him and reading the holy scriptures is a start. But knowing Him goes far beyond. 

Knowing Him releases you from doubt and from being attentive to deceptive whispers and subtle nuances of Satan, the father of lies in every day life. 
Knowing Him arms you with invisible weapons that manifest in outbursts of praise and the ability to discern and prophesy life into dead or binding situations.
Knowing Him gives you a supernatural ability to be a step ahead of your enemies and to overcome the wiles of Satan not just for yourself but for the weak and vulnerable.
Knowing Him is your shelter from life’s dangers as He is a Father who is forever holding you in His arms, comforting you and giving you wisdom in every circumstance.
Knowing Him is like having a dependable survival kit all the days of your life.
Do you know Your God ?

“One Thing” to keep the main thing, the main thing

The main thingI have had in mind author Stephen Covey’s quote “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing” because I have a pastor who quotes it quite often in the Christian context. In the Christian context, I would say that we must know that the main thing is to keep the central focus or “the main thing” of our Christian faith the main thing.

What is this “main thing” or central focus of our Christian faith? Our relationship with God and upon this foundation, our relationship with other Christians as well as non Christians and our God given commission to evangelise to that men would be saved.

As many know, David is one of my heroes and I will quote him when I say that keeping the “main thing” the main thing is only possible or comes naturally to us when we begin to desire the ONE THING. It is the state of our heart condition that determines whether we will activate or seek after God or keep the “main thing”, the main thing.

“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4 KJV)

As I quote the above, I get this sense that in fact David was stating in his own words set to music the fact that we must seek first God’s kingdom; abide in Him (make Him the central focus of our lives), behold His beauty (the goodness of God in its entirety) and inquire of Him (ask Him things, to gain His wisdom, knowledge and understanding).

Living such a lifestyle we become like David, able to have God’s supernatural strength to overcome afflictions day after day. There is therefore an outflow of generosity, love and ability to forgive and embrace people regardless of their background or what they do to us easily and see things from God’s perspective.

Indeed David was someone whose life exemplified one who could do all things through God who strengthened him, likewise if we have the same conviction as David, through Christ, we are empowered or strengthened to be able to do all things (Phil 4:13).

You cannot give what you do not have, and as we are in the worst of times in terms of the works of the powers of darkness, may we stay in the place of pursuing God with more zeal as never before so that we are transformed and strengthened through His word and fellowship in the Spirit daily. Let us keep in mind that it is not only for our sake that we do this, but so that the fountain of living waters (Holy Spirit) within us will overflow into the lives of our families, friends, neighbourhood and even on national levels.

“The zeal of your house has consumed me” (Ps.69:9 NIV/John 2:17)

Without your zeal for God at whatever cost someone may never know God or receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, just think about that!

“And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Romans 10:14 NIV)

Brethren, may we take stock of our personal lives and honestly search our hearts asking “Have I made “the main thing, the main thing” this year and past years? It is not too late for us to repent if we need to and tell the Lord that we will change our ways, seek after him first, not what we want from him.

In this Christmas season, may the Lord grant us wisdom and creative ways to reach the unsaved and draw them into the kingdom of God. As my pastor is encouraging us to invite at least one Christian to our Carol service, you too can do the same, if you have not thought of this already. Also be prepared to have coffee with them before or after to speak about Jesus Christ the Savior of the world. You may be their first introduction to the Christian faith and that day could be their day of salvation or the beginning of a hunger and thirst for God’s righteousness.

My Desire for His Things
To have all things
The Kingdom I first seek,
To do all things
Christ’s strength I entreat.
One Thing I desire
Is what I do seek
To abide in God
His beauty to behold
To enquire in His abode
His Word to savor
And rest in His favour
One main thing I desire is 
What I do seek
To heal the sick and
Strengthen the weak
To feed the hungry the Word of Truth 
For the way of Father to take solid root.

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed

Intimately and Daily yours

Loving Father,

I don’t know how to pray, but one thing I know is that I love you more everyday.

Come closer dear LORD and guide me daily, even with the rod.

To listen to your voice over and above the noise is my daily choice.

Without you I am nothing. With you I find rest and have everything.
Teach me to trust you daily even when dark clouds block my view.

Intimately yours, I offer my heart to you day by day.

“1After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” (Rev 4:1KJV)
