That Season of Life & Our Response

If your life is totally surrendered to God and if you are living in that intimate place with Him to the best of your ability, know that if people don’t appear to see or consider you or they ignore you then it is not the work of man but of God.

Consider David in the bible, he was left to tend to sheep and was not even considered as worthy to be called when Samuel asked his father Jesse to assemble his sons, one of whom was chosen by God to be the future king of Israel. God intervened and Samuel was called and anointed as king.

God has planned different seasons for us in our lives. Every season comes with God’s divine reasons for orchestrating events the way He does. As with the weather, “climatic” conditions in relation to each season in our lives differ. We need to be sensitive and take every season as they come.

When we are not the centre of attention, nor included among the good and the great our perception and understanding of such times will determine our emotional state, attitude and therefore our reaction.

May God help us to adequately discern the different seasons of our lives so that we do not fret or act on our own accord to our detriment but rather remain in His peace. Before people can see us as God does the timing must be perfect so that what they expect from us and how we respond is in line with God’s plan for us.

In order to respond to people and circumstances as God requires is only possible if we have a close relationship with God and we allow Him to take us through the different seasons of our spiritual development.

Let us rest assured that as in David’s case when God’s time for us to be taken out of obscurity, chosen from among many for a purpose, God will strategies to bring it to pass. After all He who trains us knows when we are ready to display His splendour. There is no need for us to help him do so.

All the seasons of hiddenness in God are good for us; David was tending to sheep, but what only David and God knew was that God was also tending to David’s character.

David had a good time in God’s presence; worshipping and fellowshipping with God in the stillness of the fields as a shepherd.

He was alone but not lonely. He had much time to sing and pray to a God he became confident was his “refuge and fortress” (Psa.91:2) a God he could trust.

Indeed, David had been in danger on more than one occasion as the lion and bear came to attack his sheep. God gave him not only supernatural joy which was his strength but also physical strength to fight and overcome the lion and bear. In the valley of the shadow of death, David said “I will fear no evil for you are with me your rod and staff, they comfort me”. (Psa.23:4).

Onlookers including David’s oldest brother (1 Sam 17:28) saw him as this “good for nothing except for sheep” young boy. Other people’s perception of David did not stop him from fighting Goliath and killing him. If you know your worth in God and trust Him wholeheartedly as indeed David did, it should not stop you from pursuing and fulfilling your destiny.

In the fields as a shepherd boy, David became a profoundly God trusting, confident and fearless young man who was totally surrendered and reliant on God. He was therefore prepared for the next seasons of his life which included confronting and killing the giant Philistine, Goliath when no one could. He was also prepared for the many years of warfare with and affliction from enemies far and near. This was until he become King of Judah then Israel.

Even during those times of hardship fleeing from Saul and his son Absalom, David remained close to God. The solid foundations in God, built in the season when he was an inconspicuous shepherd boy were what kept David’s life from crumbling.

God longs to spend time with us daily to either revive us spiritually, impart his will or plans to us or both. But there are also prolonged times or seasons when there is more of a stillness in our lives than is usual and a pull towards focusing on our relationship with God.

It is important not to ignore these seasons which require more time meditating on scriptures as well as praying and fasting for renewal and growth necessary for the next stage of our lives.

Be blessed and highly favoured in every season of 2021

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.

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.

Verse (Jer. 31:3) & Exhortation

Our God loves us with an everlasting love, a love that is unconditional and impartial.

As an expression of His love, Father God is long suffering and forgiving, even with arms outstretched to receive prodigals.
He is also our provider, sustainer and the list goes on…

What an awesome God we serve!!

Father teach us to love as you love and to always live in your embrace.
Have a blessed day

Waterfall of Blessings

Waterfall of Blessings

Cascading down is a mighty
waterfall, an avalanche of
blessings whose time has come.

A ripple effect is forming
crushing into binding fortes of
deception, chaos and
depression, it shows no
mercy breaking prison walls
and foundations.

It’s power is for the
rebuilding of ruins,
restoration of destinies
and releasing of
righteousness, peace
and joy in it’s advancing.

It’s your time of visitation for
a blessed outpouring.

Background:
This prophetic poem was borne out of what happened on Wed (25th May 2016), in the morning on my way to work I had a vision of a waterfall and I had this sense that it represents a gushing down of blessings from God the Father. About two hours later a Sister in Christ sent me this picture of a waterfall via messenger, after work I felt inspired to write this poem.
It is a word that is not for me alone, this is a season when the floodgates of heaven are open for a mighty outpouring of what multitudes have been seeking the LORD for. Partner with Him in obedience and faithfulness to see His will/promises come to pass.

Verse (Psalm 34:8) & Exhortation

Trusting, Tasting & Seeing that the LORD is GOOD

There it is in plain sight: “Blessed is the man who trusts in Him”. Blessings of God; Your inheritance as a believer; good health, prosperity, breakthrough, protection etc… are yours when you trust in Him and as believers it is through Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus).

Truly, trusting in God is a decision we make and He gives us the grace for it to be a reality in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Many who make that decision know that it is truly His Grace bestowed upon them that keeps them trusting and nothing they have done in themselves.

The knock on effect is that again and again they “taste and see” or experience the reality that ELOHIM GOD is GOOD !!

My prayer is that we will trust or continue trusting in the LORD, so that all that pertains to us through Him will manifest in our lives.

Would you like to always be a living testimony of His GOODNESS? I would! May God help us to continue to trust Him wholeheartedly

Blessings galore

As He is So Are They…

There are a people whose frustrations flip flop into praise. Their tears become cascades of overflowing joy.

Their words once cutting and ice cold causing shivers down the spine, now like a warm bath, inviting and soothing.

Their lifestyles read like verses bearing witness to their Master, the Anointed Saviour.

They are more than conquerors through him who loves them, the Redeemer and Lord of the Armies of Heaven.

Onward they march triumphant, generals of the LORD’s army.Clad in armours of divine strength and gifted with the know how of the Master, they advance towards battlefields.

Victory is their battle cry, as they wave flags of redemption, freeing captives, disarming enemies and taking territories.

As He is so are they.

Speak to me Yah!

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are refreshing,

transforming my heart into a well

watered garden.

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are precious,

more precious than gold and

able to render the greatest honour.

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are sweet,

sweeter than the honeycomb

giving a flavour of life like no other.

Yeshua Heals the Broken-Hearted & Sets the Captives Free

(Redemption Testimonial)

It was the bleak mid winter and it felt the same within his heart, as day after day the memories flooded his mind with such force, that he was drowning in despair and wept until his voice was hoarse.

The young man was feeling crushed ’cause once again his efforts were trashed.

Every time he thought he was in the money, it was like there was a hole in his bag of cash.

In his love life things were the same for his advances made no difference as many a woman would shrug and walk away, as if to say “you’re not my type, you’re a mug!’

He remembered the days when he sought fame and had friends in high places with whom he bet at the races. He tried to be like them but his photo shoots were returned with the message “sorry mate, modelling is not your fate!”

So he auditioned to sing and also thought acting was his thing, but his agent came back to say

“they say try something else ’cause acting and singing are not your thing!”

He was classed among world losers, subject to many teasers, state allowances and family loan advances.

Rejected and dejected, he cried “no one would care if I self-ejected!”

There was a knock on the door and in came his brother in law, handing him a Bible he said

“heard your voice message, let’s hear God’s voice in this life giving message.”

That was me ten years ago, I am no longer under the law,

but saved by Grace, thanks to my brother in law, no longer fired up with envy, but ignited with God’s power and street savvy for the redeemer.

I married a woman, sent by God who says “blessed be the Lord, He sent a man who’s my type!”

We hand out bibles for the harvest is ripe and preach the Gospel every season to deliver men from strife and treason against God’s Son,

Christ the King. For this reason, hear me one and all, Christ will do for you what he did for me, promised when he said:

“The 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.(1)”
