- I am in Christ Jesus and therefore I am a new creation. Old things have passed away and all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
- If I sin, I have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous (1 John 2:1 ESV). 23. All of God’s promises are yes and amen for me because I am in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20).
- I am qualified in Christ to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints (Colossians 1:12). 25. God my Father has delivered me from the power of darkness and transferred me into the kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13).
Big brother Jesus!
I adore you Jesus, the lion of the Tribe of Judah.
I admire your love for others, my big brother.
I love the way you look out for me and watch over me
I love your strong arms of protection you wrap around me
I love your big shoulders upon which I lean on to cry
You have a heart of gold filled with compassion for the lost.
You have penetrating eyes that search out every intention of the heart.
Thank you for being so compassionate and understanding
Thank you for gentle rebuke when I am being naughty
Thank you for your never ending love that you shower over me
Thank you for always being present to wipe away my tears
Thank you for imparting knowledge of the father into me at all times
Thank you for being such a good though tough example to follow
Big brother Jesus, you are my hero.
God, you are great and you are kind
You are the great gift who keeps giving
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”
What do you say to your father when you’re happy with him and do you do it often enough? Does your praise and adoration for him go beyond saying daddy you are the best or do you simply say your thanks in a hurry as yougo on living your life?
If you can praise your earthly father for the things he’s done for you or for the things you like about him, why not do the same for the God of the universe who created you and your earthly father? I bet He wants to hear you praise him regularly.
If you’re struggling with words of adoration to say to God, however, take comfort in the ones written in this post and let the words help you serene the God of the heavens and earth with praises, gratitude and appreciation for all He’s done in you.
Words of Adoration
God, you are the world’s greatest, The greatest of all time.
You are The first of all firsts.
You are the legend that built the universe without anybody’s help. You are our hero who rescues us from eternal damnation and you give us peace.
You are the national treasure in any country and in all nations.
The Lord God we all admire
You are filled with exceptional qualities we all desire but can never acquire
You are greater than the greatest, Greater than father Abraham, the father of our faith
You are higher than the highest, Higher than the generals of all time
All fathers get their names from you

Death is scary! No matter how old you are, you will never be ready. It separates us from what we know and it takes us to territory unknown. When death comes knocking, nobody is able to stand strong and face it alone. No matter how tall or short you are, no matter how rich or poor you may be, no matter how big or how skinny you may fancy yourself, a day of reckoning will beckon and you will answer to death’s call alone. Nobody can stand against death for you, you have to do it yourself. We all have to face him alone at some point in our lives and only Jesus can face him because he already won the battle against him. Continue reading “Speak Faith on Your Death Bed”
It takes courage and a bold step of faith when you turn your back on old ways of living life, choose to confess your sins, repent from your sins, and accept Jesus Christ openly as your Lord and Saviour till eternity comes. Nobody can do these things of their own accord except for those whose eyes have been opened and given the revelation that Jesus Christ is indeed the Lord, the redeemer of all sinners and the giver of life.
Staying in faith can be quite a struggle for new Christians. Sometimes we can be easily swayed with words that make us turn our backs on God. Other times we are faced with so much hardship that we run back to our old ways of living life and at other times, we are simply persecuted for turning our backs on religion and embracing a relationship with God. In all our struggle to staying faith in Christ however, backslide from our newly found faith in Christ. Begum Bilquis Sheikh was a new Christian who converted from Islam to Christianity and in her book, I dared to call him father, she narrated her story of family exclusions, community condemnations, death threats and several attempts to dissuade her from her newly found faith in Christ. Her journey to becoming a fully fledged Christian was not at all that smooth. Yet she persisted in her faith and she followed Christ with all her heart, her mind and with all her might. Had she not been convinced of her call to Christ, she would have crumbled under pressure and she would have lost her faith entirely. Continue reading “15 Bible Declarations for New Believers”
Not admitting personal wrongdoings is an act the world is accustomed to and you will be forgiven to think that such behaviour does not exist among Christians. Unfortunately, Christians do struggle with this unethical behaviour too. It started from the beginning when Adam blamed Eve for giving him the forbidden fruit to eat and Eve, in turn, blamed the crafty serpent for playing a trick on her (Genesis 1: 12-13). The truth is, despite having accepted Christ as personal Lord and saviour, Christians still struggle with the flesh until the mind is completely renewed and life is transformed in Christ Jesus (Romans 12:2). Continue reading “Confess the Word When Struggling To Admit Personal Wrongdoings”
Repentance is not for sinners only, it is for new Christians, mature Christians and everybody who is capable and willing to admit personal wrongdoings (James 5:15, Ephesians 5:11), accept own responsibilities (Romans 14:10) and make peace with God and man. Though we live in a world where people hardly admit wrongdoings, this is not the Christian way of living life in abundance. The Christian lifestyle would be to realise personal mistakes, admit wrongdoings, repent and refrain from repeating the same mistakes again. In the history of Christianity, Ash Wednesday has been consecrated for such an act of repentance. Continue reading “Ash Wednesday Prayer of Repentance”
Walking alone in the world without God is foolhardy. And leaning on your own understanding without asking God for wisdom and direction can only lead to one thing; death. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it is the way of death (Proverbs 16:25 (CSB)”). God is all knowing like God and his ways lead to life. He is the only omnipotent and omniscient in existence. With him you are safe and found. Without him you are lost and in danger in the world. When you follow God’s ways, salvation is guaranteed, you can experience deliverance, your redemption is secured and you are protected from impending evil. Continue reading “Walk With God”
Provision has been made through Christ for our survival in life otherwise Jesus would not have come to earth. He came to earth, to give us life in abundance (John 10:10) so that we do not live a mediocre life. Therefore you no longer need to worry over what you will eat, drink or wear (Matthew 6:25-34) because you have more than enough through Christ who supplies all your need from his abundant riches. Instead of worrying over your needs, put your faith to the test and reach out to the Lord in prayer henceforth. Do not allow worry into your heart for when you start to worry, you doubt God’s power of provision for you and this does not provide the faith you need to bring about your desires.
