God will see you through – Be Calm!

The story of Joseph is a great leading to the blessings that God has for you; you will read some of it in this message. I have reproduced a full text of that part of the scriptures so that you can follow through without distractions. If you can relate to this truth, then appropriate it and let God work it out in your life. God will see you through.

“Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!” You can activate your faith

But Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands, and said, “Let us not kill him.” And Reuben said to them, “Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him”—that he might deliver him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father.

So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him. hen they took him and cast him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it.

And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt. So Judah said to his brothers, “What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother and our flesh.” And his brothers listened.  Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt” Gen.31:18-29 (NKJV).

The brothers of Joseph were “blind” in the spirit and were all out to do evil to a man who they did nothing to them, they did not understand him and cared less if he lived or died.

Do you know that Joseph was never a King or a Judge (or anything of such) in Israel? So where was their envy? Darkness rules the hearts of evil people and blinds them.

Evil does not always start nor end with outsiders; many major evil plots always have an insider! It is common with believers to be vulnerable to dangers perpetrated from close quarters. The word of God never said we should be ‘as harmless as a dove and as stupid as the sheep’. It says, “to be as harmless as a dove and as wise as the serpent.” Matt. 10:16 (KJV). Be warned, it did not say we should be serpents!

Always remember that God is in control and Psalm 121:3-8.

“He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.

The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore”

Don’t be fooled to believe that your destiny is in the hands of those who hate you and who would like to give “testimony” in their ‘gatherings’ of how their “god” destroyed their enemy. (meaning you – they are liars).  You are never going to be destroyed.

The facts are in the promises of God concerning you. God will do anything possible to ensure that his promises concerning you are fulfilled. That is always his way of doing things.

Joseph was actually set on course to fulfil his destiny. God was watching and was in perfect control. All that Joseph passed through were part of the plan. The brothers played into God’s plan. Don’t despair, you are on course to your rising and glory.

The revelations to Joseph were all fulfilled. You will fulfil destiny. No man can stop you.

Trust God, believe his promises to you and stay focussed; don’t allow fear and frustration overwhelm you. “the dragon shall not prevail.” Rev. 12:7-8. (KJV)

“If the enemy comes in one way, will flee in seven ways.” Dt. 28:7 (KJV)

Stop comparing yourself with others, mind your own business and walk in your own path. Serve the Lord and ‘you will not serve your enemies’ Dt.28:47-48.

Enjoy the grace of God. “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”

What you believe strongly in your heart, is what you will become. God bless you.

How to win in life – Comfort to a man of God

It my prayer that this word meets you well and brings the breakthrough that you so desire at this time. This is a special message to a person of God. You may know someone who may need these words and may wish to send it to him/her. (Please, I am not talking about “a send to everyone stuff”. Be sure the person needs it.

You may be in such a situation like a cross road, you are surrounded be evidence of the power of God but you are just dry and empty inside and it looks as if the word of God is bouncing off you. You are tempted to ask question the reality of the Lord, like John the Baptist did.

“When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Luke 7:20-23 (KJV)

God is control. Don’t give up. The power of God all around you is real despite your challenges. Give God the control and wait for your breakthrough.

The devil is defeated and you know it. However, the fleshed can be a real issue (this doesn’t apply to all.), you can’t understand why your “declarations” are not coming “the way you want them” see Isaiah 55:6ff. 

Remember the great things God is doing around you, (even through your hands), and be encouraged. You will step into a miracle soonest, but, let the Holy Spirit take control; NOW.

Satanic conspiracy against you are destroyed in Jesus name. Let the light of his glory shine upon you even in the gross darkness of this world. 

You are an overcomer and I am praying for you.

What is in your heart – you will become just that!

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.

You are redeemed – your ‘curse’ has been destroyed

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.

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).

Join me and lets pray.

The prayer focus is primarily YOU.

Stepping into God’s Zone

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.

The Dragon Shall Not Prevail

The dragon shall not prevail.1

Psalm 20 – The Word of God to You

1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now this I know:
The LORD gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
9 LORD, give victory to the king!
Answer us when we call!

Believe it and see the glory of God in your life; for there shall be a performance of His word.

Your Well-Being Versus Religious Debates

There are a lot of argument about healing and miracles. Many of those arguments are appalling because they come from people who should know better (Christian religious leaders.) They argue that signs and wonders, healing and miracles don’t happen again. I have made up mine mind to distance myself from such circles because such discussions are unbeneficial and boring. However, it is nothing new as you will find in the following scripture.

“On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue leader said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”
The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”
When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.” Luke 13:10-17.(NIV)

There are people who have the idea like “I don’t care if and when you are healed (or receive your miracle), for as long as it is not now. Some people consider talk about the Holy Spirit, miracles, healing, signs and wonders as “insanity” or misguided teaching.
My concern is about believers who need to enjoy the provision God made for their well-being. If you don’t believe in the supernatural, miracles, healing, sign and wonders, what are you in church for? If you don’t believe in God’s intervention in human affairs, what are you carrying the Bible for? A believer must come to terms with what the word of God teaches. God wants us to make heaven as well as enjoy his goodness on earth. There are a lot of pressures from the devil and many people need help. We can get help from God as we ask for it in prayers. We must persevere in hope for deliverance and victory over the powers of darkness.

The woman that Jesus healed was described as a “daughter of Abraham”. She must have been fervent in serving God but was content to live with her infirmity for life. The religious leaders of those days were not bothered about people’s problems. Like we read from the scripture, they ended up in embarrassment when Jesus exposed their errors. I believe in the power of God to intervene in human affairs. I have seen and experienced sign and wonders, miracles, deliverance, healing, etc.

Healing, miracles, sign and wonders are your portion. You can receive help now. Ask God for it; it won’t cost you anything; ask by faith. Do it now and never give up.

Be Strong – Change 1

Warning: The Post you are about to read is capable of transforming your life.

Change 2

Change 2

N/B: You can remove the “Egyptians” in the scripture quoted above and put your challenges, struggles, disappointments, sickness, barrenness, and emptiness in its place. (put anything that has been bothering you endlessly)

God is able to change your situation – today is your day for change.! Let God handle it.
