Nobody is above tests in life. We all must go through it.
In fact, you would have written different tests in school throughout your childhood and all the way through to the university level in your adolescent. There is always one test or the other to write in order to progress from one class to another and the end result usually amounts to some level of academics achievement.
Your Life is not dissimilar to your educational experience. It is in different stages and it comes with different tests. In order to progress from one stage to another, there are different tests to write and those you must pass them. This is just the way God created the human being life cycle.
These tests are usually in the form of trials and tribulations. They often come unexpectedly and if you are unaware of them and unprepared for them, they will catch you off guard and you may fail them. When you fail these tests in your life, you will remain in one life cycle not moving forward, not achieving anything, not finding fulfilment nor purpose until you pass your tests.
You need to pass your life tests in order to progress to your next level in life. Continue reading “3 Things In Life God Uses to Test You.”
I had a panic attack recently and it gave me an insight into what most people who suffer from anxiety, fear of the future and Monday blues go through. I didn’t know what was happening to me at the time but it felt like my mind was going to pop right out of my chest. My chest was tight and I had very little strength in my body. My mind was numb and my brain was hurting badly. I thought I was going to run mad. I wanted to get through to the people around me but nobody picked up their calls.

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

Speak about your words
Power of life and death is in your words
Your words create your reality
My words have power to defeat the enemy
Those same words have power to speak life and prosperity
I have been given the authority, yes I
I can move mountains by the words that I speak
By the power invested in me, I decree
God’s favor is resting on me Continue reading “I Speak it by Karen Clark Sheard”
Speak The Word Lyrics by Tina Campbell
Word of God is power
Sharper than a sword
It knows the thoughts you’re thinking
And what you’re feeling in your heart
It’ll teach you, train you, transform you if you let it in
It’ll cover you and carry you, turn you away from sin
If you want to be like Jesus, and live like he lived
You gotta read the Bible and do what he did
Speak the word
(Speak the word) If you’re tired of being in the situation you’re in
Speak the word
If you’re sick in your body and you’re ready to be healed
Speak the word
If the way you’re thinking has really got to change
Speak the word
‘Cause the power of life and death isn’t what you say
The word of God is your weapon
Use it to fight and win
Speak the word, you gotta speak the word, oh yeah

Humility sometimes may mean leaving your comfort zones. Every now and again I leave the comfort of my home to babysit or house sit for somebody who is in desperate need of help. Whilst it gives me great pleasure to help others, it can be such an inconvenience when I don’t meet the same comfort I left behind.
I remember complaining to the Lord one day and his answer was; “the same way you have left your comforts for the convenience of others, I have caused others to adjust their lives and inconvenient themselves for you whenever you’re in need of help”. Continue reading “Leave Your Comforts and Be Humble”
Christ said it that “whoever wants to be greatest must be a servant” – Matthew 20:26. This simply means to humble yourself first and foremost if you want to be great among others. And if you want a change for good in your life, ask the Lord to start from your heart. Mother Theresa is honoured and well loved today because she humbled herself. She did not count herself to be above the lepers whom she cared for, instead, she moved her home to be among them and she served them.
It was the heart of Saul that the Lord first changed before he became King Saul. The Lord first dealt with pride in King Nebuchadnezzar’s heart before he was restored to his throne after having been humbled by God to live like an animal. Saul’s heart was touched on his way to Damascus before he became Paul, an ardent follower of Christ and the preacher of the gospel of good news. It was also Zacchaeus’s heart that the Lord first changed before he repented of his sins, decided to give back everything he fraudulently collected from people and he followed Jesus.

Humility cannot be taught but it can be learned and it can be a gift from God. Most people will learn and acquire the gift of humility through trials and tribulations. King Nebuchadnezzar did not learn to be humble until he ate with the animals and he lived like them. Moses learned the art of humility in the wilderness having fled from the King who sought to kill him. King David exhibited traits of humility throughout his trying times and the only man who was truly humble was Jesus. He didn’t raise his hands or feet or eyes when beaten and battered, instead he blessed his persecutors and he prayed for them. Humility means keeping quiet when insulted or abused even though it might hurt your feelings. Humility is walking away from claiming your rights when being persecuted for it.
