God, The Master Planner

There is none like you Lord, the Master Planner.
From the beginning of time when the 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.

With a great plan you breathed life into the deadpan and With great intentions you formed humanity

You breathed upon all flesh and all things dead came to life
Humanity to live on earth, to multiply and be merry
To work the earth and its expanse till we filled our bellies

You who made the earth from the sea and the land from the ocean
You parted the sea and you hung the heavens
You beautify the forest with lilies and
You fill the oceans with all manner of creatures

With a great plan Humanity was made until the pain was such that your Son would come and pay for all our sins He laid on the tree called the cross of Calvary

You planned my beginning all through to the end of my life
You planned my standing up and my sitting down
You planned my happy hours and my sad moments
You planned my wake up call moments and my peaceful, restful moments

You planned what I would look like, talk like and act like
Right from my mother’s womb, you plotted my arrival time
You knitted me together from within her and
Her blood you passed through my veins to give me life, to give me breath

You chose that I may know your son at the right time and
That I may serve the only Holy one at the appointed time
You give grace and you give faith
You make me strong and then you make me steadfast
To walk in your ways so that I may belong to your race

To do your will on earth
To fulfil your purpose for my life
None of my tears are wasted in your room
All of my fears are consumed in the tomb
Every second, minutes, hour and days of my life are accounted for in your book
My life you have written out with your ink

What were you looking for on earth that you would choose me?
To whom do you need a representative that you would count me worthy?
How did you determine the worth of this lost soul that you would pay such a price?
Why would you consider this handmaiden that sins have overtaken
Where will you send me now that My true identity is no longer mistaken
You put together my destiny and you still call me your own
To you, my Lord, my God, the master planner I give all the adoration


The Lord God Who Answers Prayers

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.

We ask your plans to fulfil and
Your answer is to be still,
We ask to accomplish your purpose
You pledge your allegiance to your people,
Your priorities are right and they are your children
In your timing, it shall all be done.

You give chances and you give choices,
You give grace and you give praises
You give honour to the disgraced and
You place the misplaced in your chosen space,
You answer when we call and
You shower your goodness upon all,
By your grace, it shall be done

Your ways are not our ways and your thoughts are not our thoughts,
Your Yes is your Yes and Your No is your No.
Not one of your words return to you void,
Not one of your promises do you not deploy,
All of them are your blessings for us to employ,
Through the night and through the days,
It shall all come to be done.

You do not leave any stone unturned,
You do not leave kingdoms upturned,
You give kings the wisdom to rule and
You establish their dynasties until eternity,
You give grace to the humble and
The proud at heart you cause to stumble,
In your perfect ways, it shall all be done

You give peace to the troubled, strength to the weary,
You sustain, you provide and you protect the needy,
You give hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and homes to the homeless,
You give light in the dark, courage to the fearful and health to the sick,
Family to the lonely, friends to the isolated
The life you have restored, minds you have renewed,
In your power and your might, it is all done

You do not deceive us into believing
You do not precede your timing
You do not reject when we ask, Your answer is to wait and trust
You do not deny what we desire
No good thing do you withhold from your loved ones

You never keep us waiting and weary
You never keep us praying and hopeless
You never keep us believing and doubting
You always keep us trusting in your perfect timing
It shall be done

I will be careful what I ask of the Lord God
For I might just get it
I will be ready for what I ask of the Lord God
For a trial might come my way
I will be patient in my requests to the Lord God
For His ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not my thoughts
I will endure and be faithful in waiting
For the Lord God honours the faithfulness of His saints

The Forgiving God

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.

You are not a man that you would hold grudges against anybody,
You are not a man that you would pay evil for evil,
You are not a man that you would not answer us when we call on you even in our sinful state,
You are not a man who would ignore the request of a loved one,

You are not easily angered
You are not easily frustrated
You are not easily irritated
You are not easily offended
You are not impatient with us

You are long-suffering, forbearing and uncomplaining
You give us long ropes to pull
You are patient and you are kind
You are full of mercy and you are compassionate

You see beyond our actions and you deal with us according to our motives
You look into our hearts and you reward us accordingly
You have mercy upon whom you will have mercy and
You judge the contentious

You see our inadequacies and you love us more
You see our weaknesses and you judge us less
You see our failures and you calm our fears
You see our state of mind and you cover us with your everlasting love
In all our miserable self you cast us not away

You choose to shine in us and through us
You turn our shame into fame
You turn our mess into a message
You turn our passion into flame
You break the stony heart and you give a heart of flesh
You turn over our weaknesses and they are made perfect in your strength
Heavenly Father great is your forgiveness towards us

Accepting God’s Love

Believe it or not, 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! He loves you unconditionally in spite of your condition.  He loves you objectively in spite of your objections. He loves you irrespective of your lack of respect for 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.  

Father’s day for you may have been more of a remembrance day like it was for me until a few years ago than it was a day to celebrate my earthly father. His loss and his absence may have lost a vacuum in my heart for many years, thankfully God stepped in and filled the hole in my heart wuth his love. Today I celebrate the many father figures that have come my way. I celebrate on Father’s day many father figures in my life who have been there for me and who have stepped in at any time I needed the father’s guide and love. 

Father’s day for you may have been a day you were reminded of the abuse you suffered instead of the protection you needed. It may have been a day you remembered the rejection or the disapproval you suffered from your father instead of an acceptancehe  and approval you longed for. For you, father’s day may have been a reminder of your disappointments with your biological father. He may have disappeared when you needed him the most. He may have abused you, used you and dumped you. He may have cursed you instead of releasing a blessing over you. He may have disappeared into thin air when he was supposed to stand by you and stay with you. And this may make father’s day a difficult day for you.

The good news is, God’s love never disappoints. His love is like a rock, never moving, never shaken, always present. Always on stand by to comfort you and shower you with his love. His love is the ultimate. Where you have not known your biological father or you do not know him enough to experience his love, God knows you and his love for you never fails. He will do so much more for you than an earthly father could ever do for you. Nothing can stop God from loving you. He loves you beyond measure and nothing can separate you from his love.

The Bible says; “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?” (Romans 8:35S).

Where you may have lost your father to death or any other unforeseen circumstances, God is readily available to be the father you lost. He is the father of the fatherless and the husband of the widow. He comes riding with comfort in his wings and bearing provisions in his back. He is ever loving and ever faithful. He will never disappear on you and you can never lose him. Though an earthly father is a representative of a heavenly father on earth, But in a case where you have not seen God’s love through your biological father and you struggle to accept God’s love due to your experiences, God’s love can permeate through your heart on this Father’s Day if you will give him a chance. You too can enjoy God’s unending love when you choose to accept his love. And where you may be struggling to see or accept God’s love, the following Bible Declarations of faith would help open up your heart to receiving God’s love.

Make a Declaration of Faith

Today I accept the unconditional, unending love of God into my heart. I may have gone through situations amd circumstances that have shaken my faith in the live of God, today I accept my fate in God and I declare that I am loved by God unconditionally. God loves me no matter what! Though, once a sinner and I went astray, now I am back and I am wrapped up in the love of God through Christ who died for my sins so that I can experience God’s great love. (Romans 5:8)


My God is rich and merciful and he loves me greatly. Through God’s love I come alive together with Christ who saved me by his grace (Ephesians 2:4-5)


I declare that I am enveloped with God’s love through his son Jesus Christ. Today I accept the love of God with all of my heart and I exchange the missing piece of my heart for the wholeness in God so that I might live through his son Christ Jesus whom he sent to be the propitiation for my sins (1 John 4:9-11)


I declare that God is mighty to save and he saves me from loss and rejection. I declare that God rejoices over me with gladness and quietens me with his love. He is exulted over me with loud singing (Zephaniah 3:17)


I am a product of God’s love filled with God’s love for the world. I am a child of God born with love, to show forth his love for the world (1 John 3:1)


I believe that God loves me so much he gave up his only son just for me in whom I believe that I shall not perish with this world but I have now inherited an everlasting life. (John 3:16)


I am the apple of God’s eyes and he jealously guards me (Deuteronomy 32:10).


God is my father. He is my creator, my potter. I am the clay in his hands, the work of his hands carefully moulded for his purpose. He has great pride in me. I am his finished product ( Isaiah 64:8)


My father knows what I need before I ask him (Matthew 6:8). He sees what is done in the secret and he rewards me for my labour of love (Matthew 6:4)


I am loved. I am valuable in God’s eyes. Much more valuable than the birds of the air who do not sow or reap or store in barns yet my father feeds them (Matthew 6:26)


I ask my father for good gifts and he gives them to me (Matthew 7:11)


Praise be to the God and father of my Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed me in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. I am chosen, predestined in love and adopted to be a child of God. I am loved (Ephesians 1:3-5)

Biblical Declaration of Faith for Provision

Whenever I need provision of any sort I reach for my Bible and I declare in faith; The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want (Psalms 23:1). I declare this scripture because I am aware that Shepherds always provide for their sheep. They go to any length to look for food, water and shelter for their sheep. They go beyond providing the basic needs, they guide, direct and protect their sheep. I have made the Lord Jesus Christ my shepherd and Jesus is a good shepherd who laid down his life for his sheep (John 10:11-15). Therefore I am convinced that he will provide for all my need and yours.

What do you lack? What do you need? What exactly is it that you want? Are you unemployed, call upon Jesus the good shepherd. Are you single looking to be married, call upon the good shepherd for a good husband and companion. Are you hungry, call upon Jesus the good shepherd to feed you, do you need clothing? Jesus is more than able to clothe you, do you need shelter? Jesus can provide. Do you need guidance, counselling, comfort, protection? What do you need? Call upon the name of Jesus. He is a good shepherd and he will look after you.

Shepherds lead. Shepherds guide and guard. Shepherds direct. They are responsible for the safety and welfare of their flocks. As a good shepherd, the Lord looks after the welfare of his children. He makes sure that they are in good health, they are fed, sheltered, guided and guarded, well rested, provided for, they lack nothing. Even their hair is taken care of.

King David understood the role of shepherds. More so he understood the role of Jesus as the good shepherd. That is why he said, the Lord is his shepherd. He acknowledged Jesus as his shepherd. King David surrendered himself to the Lord as his shepherd. Not because he saw himself as an animal but because he saw beyond the physical. He was being metaphorical. He simply recognized the Lord as the good Lord who leads, guides and guard, provides for his children. He saw beyond the realm of the physical and he had the revelation that the Lord is responsible for the safety and protection of his own.

You may choose to see the Lord differently. He may not be a shepherd to you but he may be a father to you. He may be a God to you or a king. You can attribute those names and authorities to the Lord if you so wish to do so. But allow me to introduce Jesus to you who is a shepherd and a good one at it. Jesus said he is the good shepherd. There are bad shepherds who do not care for their sheep but Jesus is a good shepherd who looks after his own. He will do everything in his capacity to provide for you, to protect you, to guide and guard you, to lead you in the path of life and in the paths of righteousness. He will lead you besides still waters and allow you to lie down in green pastures.

If you know Jesus, Call upon the name of Jesus and he will do whatever you ask in his name. If you do not know Jesus, call upon his name still and he will come to your aid.

Make a declaration of faith
The Lord Jesus is my shepherd. I shall not want.

Jesus is a good shepherd, I will not lack anything good. Jesus watches over me and no evil shall befall me. I will not go astray but I will dwell under his shelter listening to guidance and directions from him.

Jesus is my shepherd. I hear his voice and I obey. He guides me int he path of righteousness for his name sake and I shall not go astray.

I call upon the name of the Lord and he answers me. Jesus is my shepherd I shall not lack anything good. I shall not lack a good companion for he set a good shepherd over me and he settles me in a good home.

Jesus is my shepherd, I will not lack employment for he leads me to a green pasture(a good company to work with). Jesus opens a great door for effective work for me and I shall enter therein for good works.

Jesus is my shepherd, I shall not lack a good house over my head for he leads me beside still waters(a good house in a good neighbourhood).
This is my declaration. God said it, I believe it and so shall it be.

Psalm 23

Who Is God?

God is the omnipotent-he has unlimited power to do anything. He created all things (Isaiah 44:24), the heavens and the earth through the power of his words(Genesis 1, Psalm 33:6). His power was revealed in his son Jesus Christ – the second person of the Trinity, who performed numerous miracles throughout his ministry. He has all the power to save – Salvation belongs to God (Revelation 19:1). He has the power of death and life. He gives life and he takes away life (Job 1:21, Revelation 13:8) He is the Almighty father (Revelation 11:17). He is the El-Shaddai – The All-sufficient God (Psalm 46).

God is the omniscient, the all knowing(1 John 3:20). He knows the numbers of our hair and when we lose a single hair (Matthew 10:29-30). He knows the end of all things (Isaiah 46:9-10), He knows our thoughts before we speak (Psalm 139:4), He knows and formed us inside the womb (Psalm 139:1-3, 15-16). He knows the heart of all human beings (1 Kings 8:39)

God is omnipresent – always present(Jeremiah 23:24). God is the supreme being. He is the first person of the Trinity. He is the dominant character in the sacred texts of the Bible. God is love(1 John 4:16). You can only go to God the father through his son, Jesus Christ who is the second person of the Trinity. Only God forgives.

God exists in three persons, God the father, God the son and The Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14). He existed before the world began (John 8:58). The Bible says there is only one God (Isaiah 45:5) and He was not created. He is holy – his eyes cannot behold iniquity (Habakkuk. 1:13). God is a spirit being (John 4:24)

7 Critical Things Jesus Did Just For You

Jesus did not go through agonising pain on the cross for no reason. He did not suffer rejection in the hands of those he cared for and loved for no just cause. His betrayal by the most trusted disciple was no child’s play. Jesus did it all for a reason in the season. He went through it all so that you might have abundant life.

Like a criminal he was harshly treated, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked, pierced, whipped with seventy lashes, condemned to death on the cross, so that you could be redeemed from the harsh consequences of sin and just so that you do not have to go through the same injustice he suffered on earth.

Jesus was pierced for your rebellion(transgression) – Adam and Eve surrendered their will to be tempted of the devil and thereby introduced sin to the world.(Romans 5:12) making us all sinners (Romans 3:23), even from our mothers womb (Psalm 51:5). Since the eyes of the Lord cannot see evil(Habakkuk 1:13) and He want to redeem mankind from sin (Titus 2:14), He gave his only begotten son (John 3:16), Jesus Christ to take away the sin of the world (John 1:29). So Jesus was beaten and tortured for your transgressions so that salvation might be made available to everyone, and in all of his sufferings he didn’t say a word.

Jesus carried your sicknesses and pains – Jesus took upon himself our infirmities and carried away our diseases (Matthew 8:17), so that we might be made whole (John 5:6). God intends for his children to live a healthy life just as a father would suffer for his children so that they do not have to go through the same suffering. Jesus was beaten up, crushed for the sins of many not because he brought it upon himself nor because he deserved the beaten, but because God ordained Christ to carry the sicknesses and diseases of sinners that they might partake of the healing process once they come into salvation the prophesy might be fulfilled (Matthew 8:17)(Hebrews 6:4), his body was broken for you and by his stripes, you were healed(1Cor.11:23,24).

Jesus was poor for your sake – He was looked down on and passed over because he took upon himself your poverty so that you might be rich in the spirit (2 Corinthians 8:9). He was meek and lowly (Mathew 11:29) so that you might inherit the kingdom (Matthew 5:3). Jesus died without a thought for his own welfare, just so that you might be a partaker of the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus was beaten bloody for the sins of the people – His body was broken and his blood was shed to make you a child of God (Matthew 26:28). The beatings made him unattractive. People looked on him and turned away because they thought he was a scum. The truth is, it was your ugliness and wickedness (our sins) he carried that disfigured him and made him unwanted in the society and through his bruises we get healed.

Jesus grieves over your sins – We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong on him. Jesus is the good shepherd, the good shepherd will never allow his sheep to go astray and if any of the sheep goes astray, he leaves the ninety-nine behind to search for the lost sheep (Luke 15:1-7) and bring him back into the fold. Jesus looks out for everybody that his father put in his care except for the stubborn sons of perdition (John 17:12) accounts for everybod Jesus took the punishment of sins of the world, and that made us whole. He was grieved for the sins of the world, he was sorrowful for the lost soul (Hebrews 5:5-8)

Jesus died for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2) – Jesus died for the sins of the world. He laid down his life as a sacrifice to atone for your sins and my sins (1 John 3:16) (John 15:13) (John 10:18). There would have been bloodshed and eternal damnation had Christ not laid down his life for the payment of our sins. He loves us so much he was willing to pay the sacrifice for the atonement of our sins.

Jesus was buried with the wicked that you might rise up with him in righteousness – They threw him in a grave with a rich man, even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true. This was done so that we might rise up with him in righteousness at the end of time (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

Now, it’s up to you. Do you own your weaknesses and sorrows? Do you want to continue in your ways as though you’re okay, as though his death means nothing, and as though eternity doesn’t hang in the balance? You can confess your rebellion and sins, and trust him to forgive you, make you whole. PRAYER OF SALVATION
