Meet the Comforter

You are limited by the thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth. Be careful!It may happen now or later but it certainly happens that what you allow to dominate your thoughts and talk about especially concerning your life and your situations are just going to become your reality. The scripture says in Mathew 9:920-22,
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
This woman concluded in her heart what she wanted out of her encounter with Jesus and she got it. 
It is important that you monitor your thoughts and your words. Don’t say things you have not thought through. Watch what people say about you and reject every evil word spoken to you or about you.
The word of God says: 
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:18 (KJV)
Jesus is our righteousness and evil words of people against us will amount to nothing and will be frustrated. This is our heritage.

God bless you.

Hear me now and live with it, you are delivered in Christ Jesus. The word of God says so; live with it. The scripture says:

“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Gal.3:13-14. 
Don’t let it slip from your fingers. You are blessed, if you have Jesus as your saviour and Lord.

You are privileged to come to God for forgiveness when you miss it. Don’t panic. The scripture says,

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9

Believe God today and enjoy a good day. Cast all your cares on him.

God bless you. Have a great day.

God has exalted his word above everything else and his word has dynamic power to bring deliverance and effect changes to any life situation and circumstance.

An understanding of the word and effective prayers brings desired victory (Dan. 9:1ff). Applying faith in the word through purposeful action delivers enormous results. Do you need deliverance?

Being a Christian gives us the innumerable possiblities of enjoying life to the fullest and brings fulfilment and joy. The scriptures states that the faith you need is as big as the mustard see. That faith can move mountains. Mark 11:22-24. God can move your mountains, through your faith. Do you need help?

Life Changing Prayer

It is time to really change important destiny-issues in life and your right to do so is sanctioned by God.

There are some examples that forms the bases of this action and I want us to consider them.

1 Chron.4:9 – 10, “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez [Painful], because she said that his birth was painful. Jabez prayed to the God of Israel, “Please bless me and give me more territory. May your power be with me and free me from evil so that I will not be in pain.” God gave him what he prayed for” (GW)

Jabez made up his mind that enough was enough of the troubles brought upon him by his name. Frustration made the mother call him a bad name. Responsibility made him seek for a change and God honoured his desire for a change.

Would God honour your desire and prayer for change?

Matt. 7:7 – 11, says he will.

The scriptures says, “Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you.  Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find, and for the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “If your child asks you for bread, would any of you give him a stone? Or if your child asks for a fish, would you give him a snake? Even though you’re evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. So how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him?” Matt. 7:7-11, (GW)

In 1 Sam. 1:9-18, Hannah made up her mind that she had had enough of being a bed-fellow with bareness. She decided that there must be an end to her shame. She must have thought, let me give it another push and see what God will do. God changed her situation. The scriptures says,

“One day, after Hannah had something to eat and drink in Shiloh, she got up. (The priest Eli was sitting on a chair by the door of the Lord’s temple.) Though she was resentful, she prayed to the Lord while she cried. She made this vow, “Lord of Armies, if you will look at my misery, remember me, and give me a boy, then I will give him to you for as long as he lives. A razor will never be used on his head.” While Hannah was praying a long time in front of the Lord, Eli was watching her mouth. She was praying silently. Her voice couldn’t be heard; only her lips were moving. Eli thought she was drunk.

“How long are you going to stay drunk?” Eli asked her. “Get rid of your wine.”

Hannah responded, “No sir. I’m not drunk. I’m depressed. I’m pouring out my heart to the Lord. Don’t take me to be a good-for-nothing woman. I was praying like this because I’ve been troubled and tormented.”

Eli replied, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant your request.”

“May you continue to be kind to me,” she said. Then the woman went her way and ate. She was no longer sad.  Early in the morning Elkanah and his family got up and worshiped in front of the Lord. Then they returned home to Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the Lord remembered her. Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel [God Hears], because she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” 1 Sam.1:9-18. (GW)

Will God change yours? Don’t assume he would not. Give it another push.

James 5:13- 18 says he will. The scriptures says,

“If any of you are having trouble, pray. If you are happy, sing psalms. If you are sick, call for the church leaders. Have them pray for you and anoint you with olive oil in the name of the Lord. (Prayers offered in faith will save those who are sick, and the Lord will cure them.) If you have sinned, you will be forgiven. So admit your sins to each other, and pray for each other so that you will be healed. Prayers offered by those who have God’s approval are effective. Elijah was human like us. Yet, when he prayed that it wouldn’t rain, no rain fell on the ground for three-and-a-half years. Then he prayed again. It rained, and the ground produced crops.” James 5:13-18. (GW)

Why not give it a go and pray again!

Rebecca was not content with the struggles she was going through during her pregnancy. She went to God in prayer to find out what was happing.

God heard her and told he what was happening.

What are you going through? Are you confused and frustrated about the situations around and would want to know what the years ahead has for you? Go to God with it.

Matt. 7. 8, says those who search shall find.

If you believe you will see the glory of God. John11: 40. “Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you would see God’s glory?” (GW).

Panacea for peace

Caution: This message is capable of changing someone’s life for good!

You are very unique and special; whether you realise, acknowledge, accept or reject this truth is entirely another thing. You are who you are by the working of factors and forces known and unknown; some were as a result of birth, experiences, education or lack of it, environment – positive or negative, relationships and many others. Whatever your social or economic standing; influence or achievement, you are unique; you don’t have any other person exactly like you.

There are other people that are very unique all around you and just like you, they were made by certain factors and forces; some are known and many are unknown. They have become who they are and are important to the community either as positive or negative occupants who must not be ignored.

God is very important and very unique. He is important in the world and in lives of people, whether they acknowledge it or not. There are many who love and cherish him, in response to his love. There are many who acknowledge him as great, though not specially attached to him. There are people who ridicule God and all he stands for; here are some examples;

“Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?”  Daniel 3:13-15 (NIV) Emphasis mine.

“Elisha replied, “Hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Lord says: About this time tomorrow, a seah of the finest flour will sell for a shekel and two seahs of barley for a shekel at the gate of Samaria.”

The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if the Lord should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?”

“You will see it with your own eyes,” answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!” 2 Kings 7:1-2 (NIV) Emphasis mine.

God ignores many of the affront and disrespect from people and let everyone live as they wanted.

However there can be instances where people step out of their realm and jurisdiction to zones exclusive to God and other people to challenge their uniqueness. I will like to say concerning God, that sometimes, humans stepped into the “God zone”, in a public challenge because of their own influence powers, education, influence or many other things they can boast of.

It results in conflict. If you continue to read the reference scripture above, in the Bible, you will see the outcome. In the two instances it ended in shame for Nebuchadnezzar and death for the other fellow. The actors in both cases exerted their powers and understanding and the outcomes is a big lesson for all.

It is important that we appreciate our uniqueness in harmony with that of other people. We do this by respect, understanding and at worst tolerance.

We will do well to live and do our businesses while allowing others the right to do theirs.

When there are conflicts, it is important to resolve them and move on. In most cases being overbearing in matters relating to other people’s right of worship, existence, relationships among others is never something to do; it never pays off. Nebuchadnezzar found out in a very humiliating way.

There are people who are ingenious and have done unique things along their lives’ journey; it is only good to acknowledge them and move on. Their lives have been a blessing just like yours has been especially if you have lived productively.

It is important to respect and honour God. There are many things we might never get to know and there are things about God, though simple, but will remain mysteries to many.

Disrespecting people who love and serve God is just like stepping into and trampling on other people’s uniqueness and rights. You don’t want that happening to you, so why do it to others.

We all develop and grow; what looks so unattainable at a time might well be within reach within someone’s life time, so never give up on yourself.

Bible Quote: http://www.biblegateway.com

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed in the man who trusts in You!” Psalm 84:11-12 (NKJV)

You can see and experience the goodness of God in your life and circumstances. The glory of God speaks of his goodness, favour and salvation. You can experience healing for your body, grace for everyday life and victory in life’s battles.

You can experience the glory of God by faith. You should believe in him as the scriptures say “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently see Him” Heb. 11:6 (NKJV)

Jesus told Martha in John 11:40, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God” (NKJV). This happened at the tomb of Lazarus, Martha’s dead brother, when Jesus went to raise him from the dead. Martha had argued that Lazarus must have passed a point where any miracle could happen in his life “Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days” John 11:39 (NKJV)

In the natural realm you cannot find fault Martha’s argument but God can overrule the laws of nature to help you.

There are people who believe that their lives’ situations and circumstances will be different if Jesus is with them physical or if God would come down to them. Well, I might as well let you know that there were people who saw and touched him but did not get anything out of it. There were people who followed him everywhere just to find fault with his teaching; they did not get anything. There were disciples who argued with him before he did some miracles. They lived in natural realm – unbelief. Thomas was one of such; he was an Apostle!

“Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. And I am gland for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him” Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him” John 11:14-16 (NKJV).

There were many leaders who did not believe, like Nicodemus who came to Jesus to discuss with him. Many leaders in our present time don’t believe, though they lead Churches and Fellowships.

“There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Jesus by night …. Jesus answered and said to him “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?” John 3:1-2, 9-10, 12

There are some things you need to know and do:

You may struggle with having faith and with believing in God. There is nothing wrong with that. It is the battle of faith and you must overcome the resistance. You must believe.

You need to find out who God is by studying the Bible.

You need to be in fellowship with believing Christians to help you along your faith journey.

You must care about yourself enough to pray and ask God to help you.

You must continue to trust God despite contrary evidences and pressures of life.

Well, the first step before all the above, is to accept Jesus as you Lord and saviour.

“If you believe, you will see the glory of God”, Jesus said.

God will do it! Pray

Prayer is not a suggestion, it is God’s ordained way to meet the needs of his people. Christians are to continue in this way no matter contrary suggestions from the devil and other sources.

“Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms.

Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him. Anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him” James 5:13-15 (KJV)

Pressures of life can drive people to doubt the presence and the power of God; that is not new, it has been from the beginning. Believers believe God and live in confidence and trust in God’s power and love.

The scripture says in Heb. 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” Heb. 11:6 (KJV)

  • Whatever challenge you are going through now, commit it to God in prayer and trust him to help you. That is what God wants you to do.
  • Praise God as you wait for his intervention in that matter.
  • Be sensitive to his leading, in case he wants you to take any action.
  • Be willing to obey him.
  • Some answers to prayer may not need your contribution. Just allow God to do it.
  • Be aware that the devil and his agents may come with fear and doubt. Don’t yield to them.
  • You can pray about anything and you can pray anywhere and at anytime.

God delights in helping you. Psalm 35:27.

God bless you.
