ANVIL OF GOD'S WORD.

Image
Last eve I passed beside a blacksmith’s door
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime:
Then looking in, I saw upon the floor
Old hammers, worn with beating years of time.
“How many anvils have you had,” said I,
“To wear and batter all these hammers so?”
“Just one,” said he, and then, with twinkling eye,
“The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.”
And so, thought I, the anvil of God’s word,
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon;
Yet though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unharmed . . . the hammer’s gone.

ANGEL CAME

Image
When i was 8 or 9 years as of the time of this story i want to share with you.
My siblings and i got back from school and informed our mother of payment of fees. That the deadline was set for the next day and failure to pay our fees will lead to us being sent out of school.
My widowed mother with five children calmly said she has heard us but first we should go and inform our Father. Our father here did not mean our biological father but our heavenly Father.
We went into our room and knelt and told God that we needed our fees to be paid. And we said Amen with so much faith believing He has heard us. And we came and told my mum that we have informed Him.
She asked us what God said when we told Him. And we said "nothing". And she said lets wait and hear from Him.
My mother had no money to pay our fees.  That night, i heard her crying and praying and praising God for the money He is going to send the next day for our fees.
Morning came. She dressed us up for school. Gave us br…

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.

Image
One night I dreamed a dream. I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene, I noticed footprints in the sand, Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,  other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord, that if I follow You You would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during  the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, You have not been there me? "
The Lord replied, "The times when you have  seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you.

PRAYER AND TRUST

Image
PSALMS 62:8

"Trust in Him at all times; he people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. (KJV)

"O my people, trust him all the time. Pour out your longings before him, for he can help! " (TLB)


"Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety." (CONTEMPORARY BIBLE)



You can't open up to someone you don't trust.
Likewise, you can't pray to a God you don't trust.
Many of us only pray and trust God only when things are going well and when things aren't so well, we lose our trust and become shaken.
We even wonder if God will hear you if you tell Him what's bothering you.
But, God is telling us to "trust in Him at all times" . "Just trust me in the good and in the bad time"s.  Did He not say He will be with you in times of trouble? ; all He needs from you is trust.
WHAT IS THIS TRUST?
* Absolute dependency on God.
* Absolute confidence on God. 
* Total believe on G…

... PLACE OF SERVICE.

Image
Your breakthrough should never take your place of service to God.

Be blessed by God in what ever capacity He has blessed you with. But, be humble before Him because your achievements mean nothing to Him; instead, your constant service to Him with all you have achieved in life means so much to God.

Ask yourself, what is my place of service in the house of God?

What is my contribution towards the advancement of God's kingdom?

Some of us forget about God when He has blessed us but when things where not so rosy, we where found in His house constantly serving Him.

Some of us even take our place of service for our own selfish interest.

Remember Moses, he was the meekest man on earth. God gave him the ministry to lead his people and he was still meek. He would have been puffed up and forget why he was called to lead and begin doing what he pleased.

In this life we are living, don't allow your position in the society hinder, stop or become an excuse of you not serving God.
