IN HIS THOUGHTS

Image
Just this evening(don't roll your eyes👀, am in Africa; Nigeria to be precised); listening to one of Nathaniel Bassey's Song - This God is too good.
A line in the lyrics said "am the thoughts that feels His heart every morning, noon and night".

My mind immediately went to Jeremiah 29:11"For I know the thoughts I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

Wow!💃 This lyric made me see this scripture in a different light this evening. God is always thinking💭 of you and I. He has us in mind always. His thoughts is always filled with you and I. Just as the thoughts of a groom is always filled with thoughts of his new bride. Which reminds us of Christ being the groom of the church and we the bride.

So why should you and I worry when God is always thinking of us. In short we should be giving Him more of what to think about us through prayer and praising Him for thinking of us.

He is a good God. He is thi…

10 YEARS OF BARRENNESS TERMINATED - TESTIMONY

Image
Nonnie Robertson, "a reformer, conference speaker and business consultant with an  acute prophetic Grace". Has shared a testimony of how God terminated 10 years of unfruitfulness in life of one of her daughters. Read below:





"Our Gracious God has done it ,He has given us double for our trouble....I am a grandmother. God has added a bouncing baby girl and boy to one of my Faithful children.

After waiting for over 10yrs for the fruit of the womb,5 years later, she took in,our happiest day turned to our saddest day,the baby didn't make it.

My ever first burial was on their late baby girl 5years ago,I had to be strong for them as they handed me a carton containg less than a day old dead baby to go and bury.I sobbed as I asked God why?They couldn't come with me,as she was still in the hospital,her husband had to be in the hospital with her,I was the only one they could trust and handed over the dead baby,I called some of the church family and they went with me to the …

"WHY I HAVE BECOME AN ATHEIST IS INQUISITION, EMPATHY AND SELF INFORMATIVE ACTIONS" SAYS DONALD.

Image
I made a post on Google+ this morning with a video attached to it. Encouraging us to believe in God for a way out and new directions.

And Donald (not his real name) made comment and a discussion began between us. I asked him if he was a born-again child of God and he replied that he was before. And gave me his reasons below:

"+Uduakobong Hanson well I was born into a Christian home and I had seen how terrible our world is. Being in a military family, as a child I heard all about people being injured or killed. The constant questions I always asked were, "why would God allow this to happen?", "is there a point to human life?" and "will God ever fix anything?". This was all started around the age of 4. Eventually the inquisition and knowledge I obtaines in school made me agnostic around the age of 13. Me not being so sure I used to use cognitive looping to justify a God until around 2014, I saw how the religious community treated homosexuals. All they …

GOD OBVIOUSLY TOLD A LIED...

Image
"GOD obviously told a Lie"..

'I beg your pardon'.
The statement was made under her breath but it was quite audible to me.

"God lied, or He probably died"

She didn't as much as look up from her seated position as she spoke.
I stared at her. I could tell she was young, and relatively slim, though I couldn't see most of her features.
She had been sitting there before I came, and since then she had barely looked up from the paper in her hand.

'Ma'am, I do not think it is good to speak in such manner about God'

We were seated in a quiet park under the natural canopy created by trees which stood side by side on both sides.
The vision of the sun setting in the horizon was in one word, glorious.

A couple sat at a far end of the park, relaxing on the green carpet grass. They were obviously having their own love feast.

The evident serenity and beauty in the environment was the primary reason I always came to the park each time I wanted to rest an…

LEARNING HOW TO LEAVE THE BURDEN OF GUILT BEHIND BY JOYCE MEYER.

Image
I used to have a massive problem with guilt. I remember how I suffered with it. It was horrible! I would get up in the morning and wish it was time to go to bed because it was always there…lurking…condemning me with thoughts like this: “You didn’t… You should have… You shouldn’t have… You should know better. You did it again. What do you think you’re doing preaching to other people?”

Like I said, it was horrible. But I can honestly say that today, I am completely free from guilt and the condemnation it brings! Now, I’m not saying I don’t do wrong things sometimes. But I have learned the truth about what Jesus did for me, which gives me forgiveness of my sin and keeps me from carrying around the terrible burden of guilt, letting it steal my life day after day. I’ve also learned that it’s good to have a healthy grief about my mistakes but instead of just feeling bad about it, I come to God, admit what I did that was wrong, receive His forgiveness and then move on. The truth is, we don’t…

GOD'S ABIDING PRESENCE, NOT HIS VISITING PRESENCE BY SADE AKANNI. PART 1

Image
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. "

John 15:4

God is looking for people who will believe in Him and allow Him to live in them and work through them. God is looking for women who will stand on His behalf here on earth and carry about His life everywhere they go. Whether as married women, single ladies, or as widows, God desires to live in us.

The work of God is this - that you believe in the Lord and allow Him to stay inside of you and to direct and guide your life.

Believe in Him knowing that He has good thoughts and plans for you. He wants you to believe Him and in doing that, you shall find fulfillment in life.

Just believe in Him and allow Him to dwell in you, and work in you both to will and to do His good pleasure knowing that He will not waste your life. That is  the work of God; it is not running around doing many things.

Though God will use us to run around, to …

NEW BORN BABY DUMPED IN A PIT BY HIS MOTHER.

Image
A mother can forget her loving child but God will never forget the child. Such is the case of this baby, who has survived inside the pit after being dumped by his mother; God knows for how long.

Here is the story as told by Marble Ezeugwu:

"I was driving through the motorway in Niger State and I came across a baby boy that was dumped by her mum inside a pit that’s about 20 feet deep. The baby was brought out of the pit alive. I know that the heartless mother didn’t go down the pit to keep the baby but threw the baby inside. But the handsome baby boy survived the cruelty and he was rescued alive.

When it’s not your time to die, nothing and no one can kill you. May this baby grow up to be a testimony in Jesus’ name. Now, I pray for you also. Whatever the enemy has designed to terminate your life, you will overcome it and survive just like this baby survived in the name of Jesus."

Mackenson Saintloth rehabilitates 58 year old beggar in Haiti.

Image
Isaiah 58:10 
If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.

The Bible has made us to understand there is a reward in giving. We are the ambassadors of Christ on earth. As Christians we have to show forth christ-like qualities to our fellow man. 

Such is this young man Mackenson Saintloth who met 58 year old Claudianne battered and beaten. With the grace of God, he was able to lift her up.

This is what he had to say on his Facebook page:

"Before and after: She is called Claudianne Joseph, is 58 years old. We would meet her in the corner with a bowl in hand,(PORT AU PRINCE, HAITI) she would ask, when seeing me, she says ,"Please give me a gift of something to eat." My heart was touched. As I saw her, I learned that she has  breast disease, and the breast would leak blood. She is sick on both of her breasts,…

DEARLY BELOVED MARRIED MEN.

Be true to yourself, God and your wife. That vow you said out in church should mean something to you. It's a vow you made in the sight of God and to that woman who is your wife today. 

When the Bible said "Man love your wife as your own body...". It meant everyone of us want what's best for our body; the best clothes, shoes, etc. A man that loves his own body will not just do any to hurt himself. So, you hurt your wife, you hurt yourself because the two shall become one.

A friend of mine who is single, showed me a chat she had with a man on Facebook who is married and I just happened to know him and his wife

The chat:

Married man:  hey beautiful. I like the posts you make online. It's so inspiring. It's looks like we've met. Have we?

Single lady: no we haven't but thanks for the compliment.

Married Man: wow! Why so cold.

Single lady: cold? How?

Married man: just want to know you. I mean no harm.

Single lady: really? Just went through your profile and it show…

REACT DIFFERENTLY.

Image
Friends, when you know that someone is out deliberately or not to make you angry, do the opposite by smiling, being happy , being cheerful and being joyful. For if you respond to them in anger, you will be a fool. Ecclesiastes 7:9  says "Be not hasty in thy spirit  to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools."

Never give anyone the satisfaction that he/she has succeeded in causing you pain and hurt. Even if you are hurt by it, you could address the issue with the person later; having it in mind that the sun shouldn't go down upon your wrath (Titus 1:7).

In essence, you should react differently when faced with a situation that should get you angry. Are you facing a difficult boss or you are faced with a difficult wife/husband at home? Start reacting differently from what he/she is used to. A woman of God once told me that she was facing so many crisis in her home and marriage. She did all she could but it wasn't just working. Then she went back to God in pra…

'LORD, I CANNOT, BUT YOU CAN!’ BY PASTOR JOSEPH PRINCE

Image
Philippians 2:13 
for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
Have you ever tried to break a bad habit on your own? You probably found that when you tried to stop it by sheer willpower, you saw improvement for a while, and then bounced back to square one. Worse, you found yourself binging on the very thing that you were trying not to do. And your condition is worse than before you started your “I’m going to quit” program!
The changes were temporary because it was you doing it.
A church member who had been a chain-smoker used to believe that with willpower, he could quit smoking. He would tell himself, “If there is a will, there is a way!” But he discovered that with willpower, he could stop smoking for a week or two, and then he would succumb to the pull of nicotine again.
When he turned his life over to God and learnt about God’s grace, he told God, “I realize that I cannot stop smoking. I cannot, but You can break my habit, Lord.” And every time he lit …

LOVE IS ACTION

Image
A physician once said "the best medicine for humans is love". Someone asked "what if it doesn't work?" He smiled and said "increase the dose".


Such is the story of this young man in the above picture who was left on the streets. Looking battered and beaten, barely walking on his own until love showed up in form of the young man in yellow tee. 
He began feeding him daily, rented an apartment for him, paid someone to take care of him, bought clothes for him and took him to a doctor. Today, he is all cleaned up and healthy, looking sharp in his suit ready for church. 
Here is the message the young man on yellow tee posted on social media below:

The proof of your love for God is showing love to your fellow human. How? In your actions. John 3:16 "for God so loved the world that He gave..." what? His son. So, Love is action! Show love today with actions.

THE 'SNOW EXCUSE'.

Trish and Lindy were friends and room mates, going to the same college. The classes for that day were so hectic and intense that they just couldn't wait to get home and hit the bed.
Trish got home first before Lindy did and fell asleep instantly. Lindy joined the sleep mode an hour later.

Morning arrived with rain accompanying it. Lindy got up, and began preparing to leave for classes and also to meet up the 30% test for the day.

Lindy woke Trish up to get dressed but she said she can't go for classes because of the rain and moreover the professor won't show for the test because it's raining.
Lindy, tried to make her get dressed but it just didn't work. She had to leave with the Umbrella.

On reaching school, the Professor was already in class ready to give the test. And many students missed it because of "its raining excuse". Including Trish.

What's your excuse?

Let's look at 2 SAMUEL 23:

This chapter of the Bible talks about the 37 mighty men wit…

HORN OF MY SALVATION

PSALMS 18:2
“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God , my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
As I was studying this scripture earlier this morning, the Holy spirit made me think on how God is the ‘horn of our salvation’.
Looking   at   the  dictionary   definition of ‘horn’.  Merriam – Webster Dictionary defines  ‘horn’ as “one of the hard pointed parts that grows on the head of some animals, usually a bony processes that arise from the head of many ungulates and that are found in some extinct mammals and reptiles as one of the permanent paired hollow sheaths of keratin usually present in both sexes of the cattle and their relative that function chiefly fordefence .
Our emphasis lies on the ‘defence’. If the horns in animals is used for defence, therefore God is telling us that He is the defence of our salvation against the wiles and fiery darts of the enemy. We have been salvaged from the enemy and God is …
