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
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

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”
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”
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”
With all the chaos happening in the world today, would you rather be a Peacemaker or a War maker? A peacemaker is what we all must strive to be in the world. But unless we have the peace of God within ourselves, we cannot give it to somebody else. A man who is filled with the peace from God extends such peace to others. He’s easily forgiving, patient and kind to others. He does not take out his frustration on other people and does not pay back evil for evil. Instead, he pursues peace with all men. Where there is chaos, he brings calm. Where fight ensues, he settles it quickly. He is full of understanding and he protects his peace with all he has in the spirit, body and mind. We all need the peace of God to calm the storms in our lives. We must seek it, embrace it and extend it to others. It is World Peace Day and I wish you peace in all you do.

Christians are quick to blurt out what we feel on a daily basis. When we have negative feelings about something or somebody, we say it out loud to ourselves and we project it to other people. For example, when we feel an amount of discomfort or some kind of pressure in our heads, we are quick to say that we have a headache. Likewise, when we don’t understand somebody who is different from us as an individual, we are quick, to sum up, that person and give them a label. But we do this at our own detriment, because the moment we form those words in our heads and those words leave our mouth creating a sound that other people hear from us, we affirm those negative words and those words begin to alter the realities which then creates the world around us.

There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24(NLT)
Nobody is an island. Everybody lives in friendship. It is what makes the world go round and keeps us on our toes. We cannot live without friends. We are built to have them. There are those who build up and there are friends who pull down. But true friends stick closer to you than a brother and these are what we all must seek. They don’t come easy. They are rare and are specially bred. They are made with a tough skin to accommodate your mistakes and are loyal at heart to withstand storms in your life come what may. They stick with you as you grow in life and they stand by you as you go through life. True friends urge you on, help you up, overlook your errors and they keep you going in life. Continue reading “Seek True Friendship”
Busy! Busy! Busy! Life can be so busy and we can be so enwrapped in the busy-ness of it to the extent that we forget to focus on God or on His word. Busyness has become the norm in our world and lukewarmness has set in in our faith. Have you tried to sit still for a few minutes to focus on Jesus without getting distracted lately? How many times have you focused on the Lord in this past 24hours without losing your peace? Apart from going to church on Sunday, how many times have you sat still to focus on the Lord or to meditate in his word? Can you see how staying busy has overtaken your world? Continue reading “Stay Focused!”
