Desires! We all have them. You know, those things we strongly wish for. Those things we set our hearts on, yearn for and long for, those things we want to come forth and come to past in our lives. Either starting a new business, learning new things, getting married, changing the world, living holy above sin, overcoming temptations, getting through one life challenge or the other, or winning life’s battles. You will always have heart desires and whatever your desires are, you have got to learn to speak them forth with the word of God. Continue reading “Speak Forth Your Desires With God’s Word”
Thanksgiving is the remedy for sadness, discontentment, complaints and for when things are bad. It shifts your focus from the trouble at hand and places it on the solution provider. Instead of being focused on the problems at hand, King David never ceased from giving thanks to God who delivered him, forgave his sins and gave him victory over his enemies. It is good for you to give thanks to God for all he has done for you also.
Give thanks to God in the highest who controls the affairs of man on earth. He sees all things and he knows all things. He created all things and he is above all beings. Give thanks to God who sees to it that there are seasons and times on earth. He changes things on earth in the spiritual realm even when it seems like things are not moving forward. Give thanks to God in the highest who sends his angels to fight your battles for you even when life seems tough. Continue reading “Give Thanks to God In The Highest”
Thank God for Jesus! The greatest gift to humanity. If it were not for him, in what state would the world be today? If it were not for Jesus there is no hope of eternal life. If it were not for Jesus, forgiveness would have been inevitable (Ephesians 1:7). Through Jesus, we have access to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16). Through Jesus, we are reconciled to our heavenly father (Romans 5:10). Thank God for Jesus through whom the lonely find a home, the sick are healed and people are delivered. Thank God for Jesus who brought back the lost sheep to the good shepherd.
I recently watched John Lewis’ promotional video with Sir Elton John and in it was the slogan some gifts are more than just a gift. Jesus is more than just a gift. He is the perfect gift the father could have given humanity. Through his death, we gain life. Through his bruises, we gain health. Through his humiliation, we are truly humbled. Through his pain we are hailed. Jesus is the gift that is more than just a gift. Continue reading “Thank God for Jesus!”
Humility is not one of the Christian character traits we often see in people these days. Everybody is self-centered and self-focused. In fact, we are often encouraged to take pride in ourselves, to put ourselves forward for that promotion and to take pride in our achievements. Yet the message of Christ is that we completely humble ourselves, think of others first and be the servant of all if we want to be the greatest amongst all. Continue reading “Be Completely Humble”
I love the hymn song; Count your blessings written by Johnson Oatman Junior. You have probably sang it in church or at home or perhaps you’ve heard someone else sang it. It’s a powerful song that calls humanity to show some attitude of Gratitude even when things aren’t going so well, focus less on those things and choose to see the many blessings that has come your way. Continue reading “Have An Attitude of Gratitude”
Are you being the light in your sphere of influence? Jesus said, “You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:1). I heard a story of a church worker who summoned the courage to politely correct her boss at work not to swear in the name of Jesus anymore. The rest of her Christian co-worker reprimanded her for doing such a foolish thing. She also thought she was going to be fired after all the talks. To her surprise, she got an apology email from the boss and he also promised not to swear in the name of Jesus in the office anymore. The rest is history after that incident. Continue reading “Be the Light in The World”
Give thanks to God who always answers prayers. No matter how small, how big or how ridiculous those prayers you raised up to God may seem, God has released his answers to each one of them. He is a God who always answers prayers. Some of those answers may be in silence which means: “Wait! I am working things out”, or you may get a resounding “Yes! in which case you get an express response”, or it could be a blatant No! which means that what you have asked God for is either not a part of his plan for your life at that particular point in time or it might be detrimental to your life. Whichever one of those answers you may have received in recent years are answers and they are worth giving thanks to God for them. Continue reading “Give Thanks to God for Answered Prayers”
It isn’t all the time that we focus on self. Sometimes we must focus on God, his son and the Holy Spirit. We must look up to heaven and sing a new song to God. We must serenade the Triune God with words of adoration. God loves to hear from you that you love him as much as he also loves you.
Here’s my little way of serenading Jesus with words of adoration. Join me to adore Jesus with the following
Monday Adoration Declaration for Jesus

Choices, Choices, Choices! We all make a choice of some kind every day but are we making the right choice? In the world where options abound, are we making the right choices as children of God? This is not something to do in a hurry or to consider with your own instinct. You cannot rush in and you cannot rush out when making a choice. You must do it with such great care lest you live in regret for the rest of your life. To make the right choice, a careful consideration and a constant consultation with the Lord on each option set before you must be adopted at all time. Continue reading “Make the Right Choice”
