7 Biblical Declarations For You When Feeling Condemned by People

Jesus Christ was condemned for your sake.

It is one of the horrible incidents anybody could ever experience in life. But Jesus Christ endured it so that you can have victory when you go through it in life. He was a righteous man who endured condemnation to death on the cross (1 Peter 3:18). He had all the power and authority to stop injustice being done to him but he didn’t react nor did he respond to any of it. Instead, he submitted himself willingly to abuse, insults, hurt, pain, rejection, and condemnation from people.

You will be surprised to know that the same people who praised him with shouts of Hosanna deserted him and mocked him on the cross. He didn’t do it all in vain however, he did it for a reason. He did it for you and me so that we also can have victory in many areas of our lives where we might experience condemnation. This should give you solace when feeling condemned, rejected and hurt by people. This realisation helped me a while back when I was condemned, rejected and eventually thrown out of a community.

3 Ways God Will Test You in Life.

God will not tempt you but He will definitely test your faith in Him and your obedience to His commandments and statutes. Everybody who is born of water and the blood will go through tests at some point in their lives. Even the righteous gets tested! It’s God’s way of pruning and preparing His children for greater things ahead (1 Peter 1:7).

The movie titled Last holiday which starred Queen Latifah as Georgia Byrd touched on the tests of our faith briefly. She was a woman who was prompted to change the course of her life upon hearing of her diagnoses with a terminal illness. This introverted saleswoman Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) reflected on what she realized had been an overly cautious life. So Georgia withdrew her life savings and jetted off to Europe where she lived like a millionaire. Upbeat and passionate, Georgia charmed everybody she met, including renowned Chef Didier (Gérard Depardieu). The only one missing from her new life was her longtime crush Sean Matthews (LL Cool J).

4 Types of Unusual Relationships You Need in Your Life.

We tend to be friends with certain people in life. We gravitate towards those we think we can trust, those we share common ideas and ideals of life, those we are alike in nature and those we like to get on with. And then we stay away from those with whom we have nothing in common, we neglect those we see as lower than us in social class or status, and we cast aside those who we think we cannot gain anything from them. What we look out for, what we see and think in choosing the people in our lives have been warped with selfishness and wrong motives. We are failing to see and embrace a vital lesson in the life of Jesus who was intentional in his choice of disciples. We are failed to see vital lessons from biblical narratives of relationships and friendships. So, who are the unusual types of friends and acquaintances we need in our lives who will be instrumental to us fulfilling our God-given assignments on earth?

10 Days of Speaking God’s Love Over Yourself with Biblical Declarations

Maybe you already know that God loves you. Perhaps you’ve heard it preached from the pulpit several times, you may have heard it spoken of by different people at different times also. I am  moved somehow by God’s love for humanity through the death of Christ and I have accepted it by default that God loves me. I know it was because of God’s love that I am able to become a new person in Christ by faith. Why then do I need to declare God’s love over myself? You may have wondered about this question as well is probably your thoughts too, right? You may have heard about God’s love but do you really believe it? Do you believe that everything happens in your life purely out of God’s love for you? Continue reading “10 Days of Speaking God’s Love Over Yourself with Biblical Declarations”

February Prayer and Declarations Challenge

Can I ask you a question? When is the last time you really thought about the people in your life and you thought to pray God’s blessings over them or prayed for their well-being? This is something I was personally guilty of until a strong impression was laid upon my heart to start praying God’s blessings over the lives of the people in my life. It’s not just praying for your immediate family members or those who are close to you but praying for everybody on your mobile phone and on your email contact list, including those you don’t have direct contact with, those you don’t get along with, those you barely know and those you are probably just in business together.

Trust God Completely Biblical Declarations

It is sometimes easier to trust a man who you can see more than trusting the God whom you cannot see. If anything goes wrong with the man you see, you can hold him accountable. But with God, holding him accountable for your demise would be futile. Who do you want to call to the table of judgement than the same God who is the judge of all? But God is trustworthy. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never let you down when everybody deserts you. When nobody can see the logic reasoning behind those difficult moments, God is there holding your hands up telling you that all shall be well.

Trust In God Biblical Declarations

Trust in God with all your heart and He will direct your path. Trust that He is  working everything out in your favour and you will reap your reward. Trust his presence is in your life, He will never leave you nor forsake you. Trust in his ability, He is able to bring your dreams and desires to pass. Have you ever seen a child who does not trust his parents or a horserider who does not trust the horse he is riding? Hardly does this ever happen! Mutual trust usually exists between both parties. The child completely trusts his parents with unwavering faith and a horse does not allow a human to mount him unless he has gained the trust of the rider.

Get Back Your Self-Worth Biblical Declarations

This is for the Christian who sometimes feel less self-worth. This is for you who the society oftentimes make you feel a little less of who you are. It is for you who the community, friends, family or loved ones make you feel less of who the Lord created you to be. This is for you who sometimes get hurt as a result of people’s judgemental opinion of your behaviour, you who suffer from constant criticisms of your choices or disapproval of your decisions in life, and making you feel less confident of your self-worth.

Live a Happy Life Despite Your Circumstances

Many people want to live a happy life but they are belaboured with sadness that comes from unfulfillment, troubles and trials of the world. Consider the life of a mother who once sought the Lord for a child many years. She laboured for nine hours in the labour room to bring the child to earth and nurtured the child up to adolescent but for the child to turn against her. That child has become a source of unhappiness for that mother and she cannot live a happy life due to her circumstance. Continue reading “Live a Happy Life Despite Your Circumstances”
