With all the chaos happening in the world today, would you rather be a Peacemaker or a War maker? A peacemaker is what we all must strive to be in the world. But unless we have the peace of God within ourselves, we cannot give it to somebody else. A man who is filled with the peace from God extends such peace to others. He’s easily forgiving, patient and kind to others. He does not take out his frustration on other people and does not pay back evil for evil. Instead, he pursues peace with all men. Where there is chaos, he brings calm. Where fight ensues, he settles it quickly. He is full of understanding and he protects his peace with all he has in the spirit, body and mind. We all need the peace of God to calm the storms in our lives. We must seek it, embrace it and extend it to others. It is World Peace Day and I wish you peace in all you do.

There is none like you Lord, the Master Planner.
From the beginning of time when heaven was formed, the ocean was born and the earth was drawn.
You made a notion and lights were laid out in bountiful motion.
With great love, you stripped out the ocean and you filled the earth with your great affection.
You made the sky, you made a covering over the heavens and the earth you spread out over the sea.
The expanse of each that none can fathom. Continue reading “God, The Master Planner”
Lord God who answers prayers of the saints,
We ask in the name of your son and
You answer in the honour of your name.
We ask that your will be done and
You move in your ways till the midnight sun.
In your kingdom, it shall be done. Continue reading “The Lord God Who Answers Prayers”
We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). If God were to search through the earth for anybody who has never sinned, nobody would stand out (Ecclesiastes 7:20). That is why Jesus pointed out to the accusers of the woman caught in the act of adultery; “Let he without sin cast the first stone” (John 8:1-12). There is nobody on earth who is sinless, not one person. Only Jesus was sinless whilst on earth and there has not been anybody else after him. Continue reading “Confess Your Sins”
Heavenly Father you are forgiving,
You do not forsake nor do you cast away in our weaknesses,
You do not condemn in our lowliest state,
Neither do shun nor disown us, not in our darkest moment at the least,
You do not turn us over to the enemy
Neither do you make us a prey for the devils. Continue reading “The Forgiving God”
God, you are great and you are kind

You are the generous giver who never gives up
You are the gracious General who never gets weary
The kind who never relents in kindness and always cares
The precious provider who never pretends Continue reading “God, The Generous Giver”
God loves you no matter what you may think! He loves you no matter what anybody may have said to you or done to you. God loves you no matter what trauma you may have gone through. No matter what your actions may be against love. God loves you! Believe it or not, He loves you unconditionally in spite of your condition. He loves you unapologetically in spite of your objections. He loves you irrespective of your nonchalant attitude towards him. He loves you in spite of that situation or circumstances. He has not forgotten about you and he will never forsake you.
You may struggle to accept his love as a result of your experiences yet he will not reject you. This father’s love is unconditional and irreplaceable. Your heavenly father loves and cares for you deeply no matter what. His love is incomparable to any other human love on earth. God’s love gives you confidence and it boosts your ego. It helps you come into your own person and accelerates your growth in life. It doesn’t matter if you have never had a taste of that fatherly love’s experience, it doesn’t matter if the absence of a father has left a vacuum in your life. God’s love can and will fill you up to the overflowing. Continue reading “Accept God’s Love”

People no longer speak the truth in the world. Their mouths are full of lies and deceits. They get by in life at the expense of other people’s happiness, they pretend and there’s no truth found in them. I have had my share of being deceived and it really hurts. When deception sneaked up on me I was unguarded. It came from where I least expected it and from one of my closest friends. It came in my most vulnerable moment and ensnared me with a subtle solution to my problems. Little did I know that its subtle counsel was going to be my ruin.
It happened when Jesus was hungry too. He had been fasting for forty days and forty nights and he was hungry when the devil sneaked up on him suggesting the only seemingly solution at the time; “turn these stones to bread” he urged Jesus. But Jesus recognised the devil’s trick to deceive and he was able to overcome the lust of the flesh. Had he succumbed to the devil’s tactics he would have fallen for that solution and that would have ended his ministry (Matthew 4:3).

Doubt may set in. Confusion may find its way to you. Friends may mock you. The family may dissuade you. Colleagues at work or an acquaintance may taunt you. It’s all the ploy of the enemy to shift your focus away from the true God. It’s all a plan of the devil to make you afraid of the glorious future ahead of you. The devil does not let go easily. When he sees that you have made the beeline to turn your life around for the best and you have accepted Christ as your Lord and saviour, he will try all in his capacity to deceive, tempt and lure you out of God’s marvellous light.
The devil’s tactic is to steal, to kill and to destroy and he will try all sort to stop you from believing in God but do not give in. Stand firm in your faith. When you find yourself tempted, facing trials and tribulations, do not falter. When your sheer willpower can no longer support your belief in God, then make a beeline for the word of God and speak the following biblical declarations to strengthen your faith in God.
