Adoration for Jesus

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

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

Overcome Depression with God

I have had a few episodes of depression in my life and each time I go through those episodes I come out stronger mentally and spiritually with God on my side. One thing is certain when you fight depression with God, you come out from under that dark and heavy cloud of depression and you will find the peace from God that surpasses all understanding. You will have a new drive for life, a new drive for your faith and even a drive to help others. It is World mental health day and I am using this platform to encourage anybody out there who is suffering from depression.

When I was in the midst of some episodes of depression,  Continue reading “Overcome Depression with God”

Overcome The Hypercritical, Judgemental Spirit

Criticism thrives in the world these days and though it is good when done constructively, it is very destructive when it crosses the line from the good side to the hypercritical judgemental side. This does not promote Christ’s image in any way. We are the lighy of the world and the salt of the earth. Wr are made for signs and wonders. We are mean to impact the world positively everyday amd at all times. We are meant to do follow in thenfootsteps of Jesus, to do what he did at all times. That is to attend to people with an open heart, with no judgement in our hearts but with mercy and compassion in our eyes.

Being hypercritical and judgemental of anybody condemns and judges people harshly rather than a show of love and acceptance which we all need. One thing Christ never did is to see the weakness in people amd use it against them. Instead he strengthened the feeble knees and healed the brokenness in people. Hypercriticism only sees its own perfection and tends to think it is above any mistakes. It complains all the time and constantly points out other people’s error without any consideration for the human feelings. It tears down instead of building up. It only drives people away from the God of love, peace, mercy and justice. It is not a good spirit to embrace or operate in at all.

Unfortunately, it has slowly creeped into the Christendom and slowly becoming the norm in the community. Continue reading “Overcome The Hypercritical, Judgemental Spirit”

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. Continue reading “The Forgiving God”

Overcome Deception

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 Continue reading “Overcome Deception”

Overcome Rejection

Rejection hurts and facing its stings alone is worse. It is emotionally draining and it affects one’s state of mind negatively. It creates fear. It paralyses self-confidence. And it introduces self-doubt. It makes you question your self-belief and leaves you with sheer terror. Sometimes it attacks with subtlety and at other times, it attacks head-on, with such cold stare that opens deep wounds. It creates such pain in the heart and feelings of shame, failure and deception. This negative emotion is not something a Christian can merely shake off or face alone easily. Only God’s healing can truly set free from such a snare. Continue reading “Overcome Rejection”

Overcome Low-Self Esteem

I have seen teenagers battling low self-esteem by trying so hard to become who they are not and I have seen adults pretend they can hold it together whilst dying from this low self-esteem plague. Men cover up with control, manipulation and outburst of anger because they feel inadequate yet unable to admit their weaknesses. Women sleep around because they lack a sense of self-worth. Young adults dress up like grown-ups just to feel accepted. Both male and female succumb to peer pressure just to feel some sense of belonging. This is what low self-esteem does to you; it holds its victims captive, clouds your judgement and fills up your heart with lies. Lies such as you are not worth it, it’s your fault that bad things happen to you, you can never amount to something good, you have to do something wrong before somebody can take notice of you and so on.

Find Peace in the Storms

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you” (Isaiah 43:2).

The image that comes to mind when meditating on this scripture is that of an individual crossing over a deep water and this person is afraid of being swept away but there is someone stronger and bigger than this individual who is walking side by side to him or her and urging them to carry on crossing because he is with them and they have nothing to be afraid of. This is exactly what the peace of God is when you submit your fears and anxieties to him. You have nothing to be afraid of because God is with you, gently guiding you and directing you on the right path. Continue reading “Find Peace in the Storms”

Confess the Word Over Your Finances

God cares about your finances! Sound surprising? Did you know that there are more than 2,000 verses in the Bible that deal with financial issues like money, greed, stewardship, debt, hard work, contentment, provision, investments and more? Just as with anything else, you should approach your finances in faith, believing that your heavenly Father will be true to His Word. And part of approaching your finances in faith involves the way you think and speak about them. If you constantly focus on your lack of money, complain about your financial outlook, and doubt that God will be faithful to His Word, then you will receive exactly what you expect. However, if instead, you proclaim God’s goodness, thank Him for His provision and expect Him to be faithful to His Word, you will receive the provision from Him that you expect.
