GOD KNOWS!

First of all, please permit me to join you in thanking God for keeping us alive and safe throughout year 2016 up till now. We sure owe our survival to Him (Lamentations 3:22); we give Him Praise!

Also, permit me to congratulate you if everything went well for you throughout 2016. It is my prayer that 2017 will even be better for you and your family in every way, in Jesus name. Perhaps the out-gone year was tough for you, may the good Lord come to your aid this new year, and make things easier for you, in Jesus name. Amen.

Did you lose someone in 2016 or earlier? If you did, please accept my deepest condolences. Kindly understand that God knows; He knows everything (Hebrews 4:13); He knows your pains (Psalm 34:15) as well, and He has already sent you comfort through the Holy Spirit (John 14:16 (KJV). Of course, you may be sad right now, all the same, remember joy is coming (Psalm 30:5b), in Jesus name. Amen.

Did your business perform badly in 2016? If it did, please realize that God knows, and He will inject life into it in 2017, since He wants you to prosper; He wants you to be in good health too (3 John 2). Hallelujah!

Did your children give you problems in 2016? If they did, God knows, and He will save them (Isaiah 49:25), so that you can live your life in peace. Was your promotion blocked by someone in 2016? If it was, God knows, and He will effect it very soon (Psalm 75:6-7 (KJV), in Jesus name. Amen.

Friend, get ready for good things (viz. marriages, children, houses, cars, awards, favors, fulfillment, solid faith, and the release of your books, movies, songs, designs, etc.) to happen to you in 2017. As you know, God will never withhold any of them from you (Psalm 84:11).

Please, I am not in any way suggesting you will have 2017 free of problems. The fact is they may come up now and again, but, Jesus is willing and able to deal with them decisively on your behalf (John 16:33). But, you need to have absolute faith in God first, if you want Him to sort you out (Hebrews 11:6).

Lastly Friend, please pay good attention to your salvation in 2017 so that you don’t fall (1 Corinthians 10:12), and it shall be well with you throughout the year and beyond, in Jesus name. Amen.

Jesus is Lord!

Word Of Inspiration {25}

PLEASE THINK ABOUT GOD!

Friends, as you go about your life day by day, please think about God! Whenever you feel like dying, think about your right to live for God (Psalm 118:17). And if you feel weak, think about God giving you strength (Isaiah 40:31).

Supposing you feel like giving up, think about pressing forward with the help of God (Psalm 28:7), and if it ever comes to your mind that there is no way for you, please think about God making a way for you at all costs (Isaiah 43:19). In the end, you will rise above your challenges, witness abundance, peace, and joy in your life, and become who God wants you to become, in Jesus name. Amen.

MAKE THE MOVE, RIGHT NOW!

Today, I recall with permission, the story of Tommy (not his real name because he wants to remain anonymous) who was prompted in the Spirit to make a specific move at a crucial point in his life. He did, and got extraordinary results afterwards.

Tommy moved abroad at the invitation of his friend to further his career. And, before he left his country, his friend promised to support him in all possible ways, and he believed. Thus, he resigned from his job, sold his belongings to raise some money, and jetted out.

Initially, Tommy’s friend was very nice to him, but, he changed quickly, and made life unbearable for him. At some point, he (Tommy) wanted to return home, but, to what? He asked himself repeatedly. In the end, he kept his cool, studied very hard, and passed his examinations, only to find out that he couldn’t find a job in that country, and he became really frustrated.

One day, as he was pondering over his ordeals, especially as his host was about to kick him out, he was prompted in the Spirit to move out and fend for himself. That looked like an unwise thing to do, since he had no place to move to, or any person to turn to anyway.  But, he was assured in the Spirit that God would support him to the hilt if he obeyed, and he did.

By faith, Tommy approached an estate agent for a flat, even though he had no money to pay the rent yet. Then, on the day he was asked to pay a deposit and collect the keys into his would be flat, the Lord showed Himself mighty in his life. First, he got a sudden call that he had landed a job, which he had lost all hopes of ever getting. Then, his brother paid a decent amount of money into his bank account just around that time.

So, he went to the estate agent with confidence, paid the required deposit, went to his friend’s house, thanked him, collected his belongings, and moved out into his own flat; in other words, he moved into total freedom and a new beginning. Today, Tommy is doing well with his family. Truly, God supported him to the hilt!

Several people in the bible were divinely prompted to move out of their comfort zones when it seemed unwise to do so. For instance, Abraham, was told to move to an alien country at an old age (Genesis 12:1). Noah was told to build an ark (Genesis 6:14). Nehemiah asked to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2:4). Paul went for lost souls all over at huge risk to his life (Acts 21:10-14). Etc. In all these instances, God showed Himself mighty in the lives of those involved, because they obeyed Him. He’ll show himself mighty in yours too, if you obey Him.

Friend, what is God asking you to do today? Is He asking you to change your location so that your situation can change? Is He asking you to change your job or career? Is He asking you to start a business? Is He asking you to enroll for an examination? Is He asking you to write a book? Is He asking you to produce a film? Is He asking you to get married and start your own family? Is He asking you to serve Him in any specific capacity? Etc. If He is, then you need to obey Him right away.  So, what are you waiting for? Please make the move, right now!

Last but not least, let me inform you that God will not leave or forsake you as you obey Him (Deuteronomy 31:6); He will help you all the way through (Isaiah 41:10), and then bless you on top (Deuteronomy 28:1-14), in Jesus name. Amen.

Jesus is Lord!

YOU MIGHT BE DEALING WITH ANGELS; PLEASE HELP THEM!

Last month, I narrated the story of Brother Curtis (not his real name) who contracted a mysterious illness, which knocked him down and out for some years. I also narrated how God delivered him through a man of God. You may wish to read the whole narrative on my website via http://www.mindofchrist.org.uk/god-will-slay-your-goliath-…/.

Today, I will narrate how I met the said man of God to underscore the importance of helping people. His name is Bro. (later Pastor) Joe! He used to be the butt of ugly jokes in a small community in Nigeria where I did my National Youth Service. Some people said he was a bad man, a loafer, busybody, drug addict, cheat, etc. But, I believe he is a good man who had kind words for me each time I ran into him.

Bro. Joe lived in a dingy two-bedroom apartment with his uncle, his uncle’s two wives, and several children. Suddenly, he was thrown out, and he found himself on the street, living rough. Then one day, he came to my clinic and begged me to house him (I was living in a three-bedroom house plus a two-bedroom boys’ quarters, all by myself, at that time). I gladly gave him my boys’ quarters! Swiftly, some people in the community arose, and asked me to evict him ‘for my own good’, but, I stood my ground, and they left me alone after a while.

Bro. Joe later gave his life to Christ, and I noticed he was always reading his bible, praying very hard, and speaking in tongues (usually loudly). He was also attending crusades after crusades all over the place. Soon, people began to tell me how he preached to them, healed them, and cast out demons from them. I was stunned, but, very happy for him.

Early one morning, he knocked on my door, but, I ignored him because I wanted to be alone. He did same at 9. o’clock, and again at 12 noon. At that point, he shouted, ‘Lord, please get my doctor to talk to me’. I got up instantly, opened my door, and he told me he had a divine mandate to heal someone I know, and from his description, I knew he was referring to Bro. Curtis! Quickly, we travelled to where he was, and Bro. Joe and his team delivered him promptly.  Bro. Curtis lived a normal life afterwards to the glory of God.

Friend, I helped Bro. Joe, because that was the right thing to do (Hebrews 13:16), I never knew he was the ‘Angel’ God had arranged to fix Bro. Curtis (Hebrews 13:2). There are many people out there who needs help in some way like Bro. Curtis. Some of them need jobs, while others need money, food, water, shelter, clothes, drugs, education, etc. Please help them if you have the power to do so (Proverbs 3:27); they might just be the ‘Angels’ God has arranged to help you.

Besides, some people needs encouragement very badly; please encourage them (1 Thessalonians 5:11). Call them, send messages of hope to them, and if you can, visit them and pray for them. Guess what? God will remember your labour of love one day (Hebrews 6:10), and reward you as appropriate (Proverbs 19:17).

Yes, you may have helped some people in the past without commensurate rewards; please don’t be discouraged. Just keep doing good, and keep trusting God (Psalms 37:3a), and He will reward you sooner or later (Galatians 6:9). And when your journey on earth is over, He will give you a place in His Kingdom so that you can be with Him forever (Matthew 25:34-40), in Jesus name. Amen.

Jesus is Lord!
