Choices and Decisions

I realized while meditating on this blog post that virtually at all times when we take decisions, we end up choosing between God and another thing, it amazed me that I found it very difficult to think of a decision that would not clearly involve God.

It’s so amazing that most of us are more comfortable picking other options ahead of God without any slightest feeling of remorse.

God holds the key to our lives and He has the right to unlock or to lock just any aspect of it. We also need to understand that there’s “no me without Him”. Just in a twinkle of an eye, our lives can go to rest at ones.
Life is a privilege and the earlier we understand this, the better for us.

All through scriptures, we read about situations were men had to choose between God and themselves or even others.
One thing about this is that the choices we make, goes a long way to validating th level of our love for God.

Think about Abraham who was put the test to ascertain whether he loved God or Isaac more. But thank God he survived the test.
Remember the man Daniel and even his three friends who put to the test to see whether they love God more than food.

Job was also tested, Christ also, Joseph, Isaac, Jacob, Peter and many others were all tested.

Saul was tested as recorded in 1 Samuel 13:5-11 and again in 1 Samuel 15:1-35 but unfortunately he failed on both occasions, preferring to please the people instead of making his stance for God uncompromising.

The story of king Saul is a typical example of how most of us live, we put our reputation, friends, family, desires and dream ahead of God.
If you were in God’s shoes, how would you feel? Remember, He said of Himself, “I am a jealous God”.
I just want to use this medium to ask everyone of us to always put God’s will ahead before any other feeling whatsoever, anything, anybody, anywhere, any job or any wealth.
If only you stand out for God, you are sure to have him stand for you, and back you up so that no one can confront you or break your backbone.

Praise For Divine Light

divine-lightPsalm 89:15
“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall work, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.”
Praises attracts the blessedness of God because those who praise him are entitled to His glorious light which engenders lots of benefits attached to it such as divine guidance, protection, supernatural provision and others.
A joyful heart always does better than a medicine.
Those living in joy are always in God and if you are in God, you are bound to excel.
There is a huge difference between joy and happiness. Happiness comes as a result of your enviroment but joy comes from the inside to impact positively on your enviroment. Joy also happens to be one of the fruits of the spirit.
PRAYER: LORD, please endue me with the spirit of joy so that I can praise you at all times no matter what the situation is in Jesus name.

Vision or Ambition?

Vision is not the same as ambition. Although, ambition can make you a multi-millionaire just as vision can, there are added benefits you tend to enjoy as a visionaire instead of an ambitionaire?
Firstly, in the realm of vision, your safety is guaranteed as well as your success. If you’re working as a visionaire and still going through tough times, it is because, “A great door and effectual is open unto me, but there are many adversaries”{1 Corinthians 16:9}. Your enemies will only try to stop you after perceiving your glorious future but since you’re waking according to God’s purpose for your life, they will never succeed because stopping you, is the same as stopping God.
For every creation, there is a purpose for it and this is only made known in the realm of vision. This is the major reason for failure in life as people resort to their earthly and fleshly ambitions instead of walking according to God’s purpose for them and you know when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.
God once gave Jonah a vision to go into the land of Nineveh to preach but he ran away from it for the satisfaction of his own personal ambitions. This almost led to his death and the death of other innocent travellers because ignoring vision doesn’t only puts you at risks, it also make you a risk. But at the end of the day when he had repented, he was ushered into the realm of sweatless success as he did in one day what could have taken him three days to do. Jonah’s ministry remains one of the most successful because an entire city fasted alongside all the beast in the land due to his ministry.

Don’t you ever underestimate the power of divine agenda because those who hold fast to it are never forsaken.

How To Discover Your Purpose in Life [Catching a Vision Of Who You Are]

Until you locate the purpose of any product, that product will always fail and won’t work for you because a product cannot function efficiently outside what it’s being created for.
To discover what a product is for and how it works, you’ve got to

  • ask the manufacturer,
  • refer to the manual accompanying the product,
  • ask those who know about the product, or
  • you make research.
  • Understand that you’re a product made by the manufacturer, you can’t decide what to become, you discover it. Most persons wouldn’t want to bow to this fact and that’s why they are failing big time but hear me now, you have a maker who said, “…before I formed thee, I knew thee…”{Jeremiah 1:4}. He formed you alone hence, He knows you alone. You are unique and you remain the original copy of who you are regardless the nature of your birth. Your loved ones, teachers or mentors did not make you hence they have no right of telling you who you are. No matter how poor, bad, rejected, or disfigured you’re, your manufacturer has a plan for you, which is “…a thought of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end“{Jeremiah 29:11}. No matter how wicked a manufacturer might be, you don’t expect him to sit down to make something that he expects to fail, how much more your righteous heavenly father.
    You don’t have any rights telling your maker who you want to become or rejecting His purpose for a pot can never be greater than the potter hence He said “woe is he that striveth with his maker”{Isaiah 45:9} for, “…my counsel shall stand and I will do my pleasure”{Isaiah 46:10}

    So, how do you locate your purpose?

    BE BORN AGAIN: This is the first step to discovering your purpose as this gives you a divine connection to God. Please never try to infer that not having a divine connection to God means that He’s no longer your creator.

    PRAY: The scriptures said, “Ask me of things to come concerning my sons and concerning the works of my hands, command ye me”{Isaiah 45:11}

    PRAISE: God lives in praise and when you praise Him He comes down to you. Whenever He’s with you, expect to hear from Him.

    READ THE BOOK:The bible is a very special book from God that can help you discover you. Christ and John the Baptist discovered their purposes via the book. Go and look into that book because until you look into it, no one looks at you.

    READ OTHER ANOINTED BOOKS: Daniel used this and it worked for him-“…I Daniel understood by books…”{Daniel 9:2}. You too can.

    ENGAGING THE HOLY GHOST: “I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…your young men shall see visions”{Joel 2:28}. A young man is someone with 6 years like Samuel and 100 year’s because they both saw visions between this age range.

    Wisdom For Financial Dominion

    images-1To everything done in life, wisdom and understanding can never be neglected for without it, people perish. Financial dominion is made possible by knowing and having access to what others cannot access just as Job lamented in the days of adversity, “…in the days of my youth when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle”[Job 29:4]. Job said this because he knew what he had achieved via the divine secrets which he was operating with hence when things became tough, he was left with no other choice but to believe that he’d lost all the secrets. It takes divine wisdom to gain access to divine secrets. This gives birth to divine ideas. It is ideas that makes great men. Isaac had it and he became the first irrigation farmer, Joseph had it and he was made the prime minister, Daniel had it, and he remained one of the most successful politician in the history of the world. His wisdom ideas made him irreplaceable despite all the coups that took place during his days. Solomon riches and honour were all gotten on the platform of the divine wisdom given to him by God. For you to start enjoying financial dominion, there is someone you need to meet, there is something you need to say, there is a way you need to say it, there is a business you need to start, there is an ideal place to start that business… but do you really know all of these? The scriptures made us to understand that the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and also, the secret things belongs unto God. You must have tried so many means in order to make it in life, now is the time to let God lead you. All you need to do know is

    • surrender your life to Him
    • confess your sins
    • live a godly life

    and then ask for His divine direction and wisdom, I bet you, your life has just changed. Congratulations.

    The Truth About Giving To Churches

    seedsMany rich people you see today, are nowhere near the level Of financial dominion. These rich men go about with rich ailments which helps in consuming the money, time, comfort and freedom they would’ve enjoyed. This is the reason for their condition,”Ye have sown much but bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough, ye drink but are not filled with drink, ye clothe you but there is none warm: and he that earneth wages put it into bags with holes…ye looked and lo, it came to little and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of host. Because my house is waste, and ye run every man into his own house”[Haggai 1:6-11]. God never blesses you beyond the level of onth commitment to bless His kingdom hence He said, “seek ye first my kingdom and my righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you”[Matthew 6:33].

    God isn’t moved by your thousands of dollars. What moves Him is what your offering is going to cost you for example giving Him your only son like Abraham did or by giving your last dollar to Him and then returning home empty-handed.

    You can never out-give God.

    He is not just a jealous God, He’s also proud hence He keeps on looking for oways to justify His pride. Abraham tried but God replied by turning him from an ordinary blessing to a trans-generational and an inter-racial blessing. Infact that was the day God decided to beget Jesus Christ in order to prove He could do more than Abraham.

    No Abraham, no Jesus.

    The hungry lions tried by giving their dinner{Daniel} to Him as commanded Of the angel He sent, but God showed-up with allllll the enemies of Daniel. How much more you? I see God opening the windows Of heaven for you as you start giving.

    Winning Faith

    There is a huge difference between ordinary faith and a winning faith. Most individuals claim to possess faith but they end up not achieving anything meaningful with it. In this post, we shall considering two factors we can base our faith on so as to make it a winning one. They are conscience and action.

    CONSCIENCE BASED FAITH:
    The scriptures says, ”let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”.{Hebrews 4:6} You can never be bold without a clear conscience so, for your faith to be a winning one, you need to live a life that would never cause your heart to condemn you before God. Condemning yourself before God casts a form of doubt in your mind which makes you unstable and double minded-”let not the double minded think he shall receive anything of the Lord”{James 1:7}

    ACTION BASED FAITH: “…by works
    was faith made perfect”.{James 2:22}The scriptures also said, “…faith without work is dead”. We are not justified(opposite of condemn) by faith alone but by the duo of works and faith. One thing is to believe while another is to put your faith to work. You might have all the faith in the world that you will pass your exams but if you do not put you faith to work by studying hard, you are always going to fail.

    Example of people who put their faith to work are,

    Abraham by moving away from his kindred and also agreeing
    to sacrifice Isaac,

    Jacob by serving for over 21years despite receiving special blessings from Isaac,

    David by pulling the sling despite saying he came to fight in the name of God.

    I hope this post would be helpful to you in your christian life. Please drop your comments and also share with your friends. God bless you.

    What Is Faith

    THE OPPOSITE OF FEAR: Fear is just a false immagination of danger. If you do not agree with my definition, the bible’s definition might convince you, ”Now faith is the substance of things (not an abstract feeling) hoped for, the evidence of things (not immaginary) not seen”.[Hebrews 11:1]

    AN EYE OPENER: Faith is an eye opener that
    enables one see beyond the physical. Abraham saw himself as the father of many nations even when he was
    still childless. God once said to Abraham, “lift up now your eyes and look from the place where you are… all the land which thou seest to thee will I give it and to thy seed forever”.[Genesis13:15]

    The question here is ‘is it possible for the eyes i
    of a man to see through all the length and breadth of an ordinary city let alone a big country like Israel while standing on a point?’

    We walk by faith and not by siten.

    A SPIRITUAL CONVERTER: Faith is one great converter that is capable of converting prophecies, dreams, visions, promises, the testimonies of others etc into reality in your own life.

    A SPIRITUAL WEAPON: Our Lord Jesus Christ once said ”…if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place: and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”.[Matthew17:20]
    Examples of common mountains are

  • Mtn Kilomanjaro
  • Mtn Everest
  • Mtn Atlantic ocean
  • Mtn Eathquake
  • Mtn Mr President
  • Mtn Witchcraft
  • Mtn Unemployment
  • Mtn Poverty
  • Mtn Boko Harem
  • Mtn Hiv
  • etc

    Is there any mountain around you? drop their names into the comment box. They are all going to be levelled before you know it in Jesus name. Amen.

    How To Live A Life Of Signs And Wonders

    KNOW WHO YOU ARE: This has been a major issue among christians since the world began. When Elisha’s servant saw that they were being surrounded by the Syrian army, he became frightened because he didn’t know who he was but Elisha who knew who he was said,”Fear not: for they that be with us are greater than they that be with them…[2Kings 6:16-18]

    BELIEVE IN THE MINISTERATION OF ANGELS: The Holy Spirit has already been given to us to be our comforter i.e to proctect us and to make us comfortable and as such, you need not be afraid of anything.

    BELIEVE IN THE MINISTRATION OF ANGELS: All angels including angel Michael are subjects unto us. Angel Michael ability to defeat the devil shows that we are greater than all evil powers. All angels can be sent on errands to work for us as recorded,”My God has sent his angel and he hath shut the mouth of the lions”[Daniel 6:22]

    BE PRAYERFUL:If there is a man to pray, there is always a God to answer.

    PRAISE:Praise has a minimum of the doubled effect of prayer. Praise brought down Jericho’s wall, opened the prison gate for Paul and silas…

    SOUL WINNING: “…I have chosen you and ordained you that ye should bring forth fruit(win souls), that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name He will give it you”[John 15:16]

    TALK GOOD:Always dream big, talk big(not pride or lies),

    TESTIMONY: David testified of how he kill a bear and a lion and he ended up killing a giiant ,”for they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the words of their testimony”[Revelation12:11]

    7 THINGS THAT CAN MAKE YOU LIKE ABRAHAM- A GREAT MAN.

    Abraham- A Great Man
    Abraham- A Great Man
    Abraham is being celebrated all over the world by all christians because he was a great man. Although he died many years ago but his riches still speaks-on till now and that’s why many of us wants to be like him. Many people do believe that the rich don’t go to heaven but Abraham went to heaven as a rich man and he’s still living as a rich man there. A poor man on earth would remain a poor man in heaven just like Lazarus whose earthly poverty deprived him from having his own house hence he had to live in Abraham’s bosom. In this post, I shall be telling you 7 of the many qualities Abraham had that made him a great man. These qualities can be exhibitted by anyone and also end up like Abraham. To be like him,
    HAVE FAITH: He always believed all that God said to him despite what the reality projected. According to the scriptures, he never doubted he could bear a son even at old age.

    LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY: He was referred to as a friend of God because of his righteous lifestyle. The scriptures recorded, ‘And he believed in the Lord: and it was counted to him for righteousness'[Genesis 15:6].

    GIVE CHEERFULLY: He was always ready to give unto God as he always sacrificed wholeheartedly. Some might say he had in excess and that’s why he sacrificed much but do not forget that he almost sacrificed his son.

    SERVE GOD: The scriptures said, ‘For He remembered His only promise, and Abraham His servant'[Psalm105:42]. He was always ready to serve God at all times despite how rich he was and he was rewarded for it.

    BE A TITHER: The scriptures said, ‘…and he paid tithe of all'[Genesis 14:20]. When you pay your tithe correctly, God blesses you as He has said,’Bring ye all the tithe into the storehouse…and prove me herewith,…,if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it'[Malachi 3:10].

    BE OBEDIENT: He always obeyed the voice of God throughout his life even when it was difficult to do so. Even if God doesn’t speak directly to you, obey your elders and pastors.

    HAVE INTEGRITY: Abraham had integrity in being faithful, a tither, obedient etc. Your integrity is always connected with your reputation. He also proved his financial integrity when he said to the king of Sodom,’…lest thou should say I have made Abraham rich'[Genesis 14:23]. You too can preserve financial integrity by not taking part in bribery, theft etc
