A Heart For Praise

heartOnly a merry heart can praise God effectively.
Without a merry heart, your song remains a noise but with a merry heart even your noise is turned into a joyful noise of praise.
No matter how bad the situation may be, never loose your heart to your present condition because it is not your portion.
Just look up unto # Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross.
Never set your eyes on the temporal negatives, there is no situation God cannot change, when man’s energy fails him, then the battle becomes attractive to God but He is not a manipulator or a busy body.
God is at the sidelines just waiting for you to invite Him.
Praise is the mysterious tool for attracting God to take active part in our battles.
2 Chronicles 14:20-22

PRAYER

Father please anoint me with the oil of gladness and take away every spirit of heaviness from me so that I can praise at all times and as I praise you, take over all my battles in Jesus name.

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.

Divine Direction- A Gateway To Success

In some of my previous posts, I’ve shared with you some of the secrets of success and I shall be giving you another secret of success via this post which is divine direction.

The truth remains that God will not do anything without you and you can’t do anything without Him. So until you desire to be led by God you won’t be led by Him. To be assured of your success, you need to walk by God’s leading because there is a way that seemeth right unto a man but the end thereof, are the ways of death and ultimate failure.

To be led by God you need to be born again, live righteously, love God and also believe in the leading of the Holy Spirit which is inside of you even as you exercise yourself into being in the spirit- “I was in the spirit in the Lord.s day, and I heard behind me a voice”{Revelations 1:10}

To be in the spirit, you ought to do more of spiritual exercises such as prayer, praise, meditation, bible study and practical holiness.

Prayer is not talking to God but communicating with God. This entails you speaking to God and also hearing and understanding Him. So, whenever you are done telling Him your needs, take some time to try to listen(SPIRIT MEDITATION). This is when you stay in quietness with your eyes close in order to get full concentration. You’re always going to hear from God because God’s spirit is a speaking spirit. Most times what I do is, I close my bible and with my eyes closed, I just open any page and something I need always shows up and most times, so many things my show up at a time, all I do is I do it two more times and the Lord’s will always be seen. This is not guess work. Whenever God speaks, you need no form conviction to believe.

The good news is that, there are so many ways God can use in speaking to you, they are:

VISION: At times, this comes in mp3 format while at some other times, it comes in an mp4 format. It’s free to access, your credit card details are not needed. All you need is the password which I’ve given to you earlier in this post. John heard a voice in revelation 1:10 and then saw the voice in vs12.

TRANCE: This is just like a short sleep of few seconds where images and words just happen to you quickly.

DREAM: When you’re asleep, your body is as good as dead but your spirit remains active. Ordinarily, you can always dream all manner of things but on the day you decide to hear from God through your dreams, you will realise that your dream pattern will change dramatically especially when you’re living in holiness and continuously meditating on God’s word(before sleeping).

BIBLE: The bible is God’s word. So many people have read the bible with their names appearing on it’s pages but I tell you, you don’t need to see your name on it before accepting it as God’s word to you in person.

YOUR MIND: There are times when you need impromptu answers from God, if you’re really a son or by His mercies, ideas and data just drop on you. Please do not call it common sense. -“And ye shall hear a voice from behind you, saying. This is the way, walk ye in it…”{Isaiah 30:21}

The place of divine direction should never be left out by anyone who wants to experience true success as the surest way of getting to your destination in life, is to follow someone who knows the way. So, it’s time you made the choice to stop failing by following the right leading.

Please help me in making this post go viral by sharing. God bless you.

What is Vision?

Whenever we hear the word vision anywhere near the church, we are always inclined to thinking of a situation where an anointed individual is sensing or seeing something very unusual but vision is much more than that. In this post, I’m going to be broadening your view about this subject of vision.
So, what is vision?

It is the discovery of God’s plan and purpose.

In my previous post I talked about purpose not being something you decide but something to be discovered and here, we see that there is a huge relationship between purpose and vision because vision is the process of discovering it. Note that there are so many ways of discovering it which I shall be discussing later on. This was the kind of vision that opened up Christ’s ministry here on earth.

It is an attraction getting event

After Christ got the vision of God’s purpose for Him, the bible recorded, ‘…the eyes of everyone in the synagogue was fastened upon Him'{Luke 4:20}. Also when Moses got the vision of the burning bush, he said, ‘I must look to see this great sight for the bush burneth without being consumed'{Exodus 3:2} It becomes very difficult for you to be seen, favoured, remembered if you’re yet to see God’s plan and purpose for you.

It is your thinking

‘For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he…'{Proverbs 23:7}. Visions, dreams, and imaginations are some of the most powerful forces on the earth ‘…because it will surely come to pass, it will not tarry{Habakkuk 2:3}. Although Joseph’s vision was delayed for years, it came to pass. Although Caleb and Joshua’s vision of conquest delayed for over 40 years, it still came to pass likewise that of the other 10 spies who envisioned defeat and death.

It is as far as your eyes can see

‘God said unto Abram, lift up thine eyes northward, southward, westward and eastward. For all the land which thou seest shall I give to you and your seeds'{Genesis 13:14-15}. Similarly, God is saying, look from Genesis to Malachi, from Matthew to Revelation and all the boldness, godliness, grace, power, prosperity etc will be yours.

I hope I’ve been able to help you understand the word vision? All your comments, contributions, question and feedback are welcomed. Please also remember to share with your friends. God bless you.

How To Deal With Masturbation And Pornography

FLEE FROM EVERY APPEARANCE OF EVIL: What you see determines what you think. Fleeing not just physically but every part of you. Do away with those website, books, pop songs, devilis confessions, movies, devices… also remember to distance yourself from those friends who are not living right because evil communiaction corrupts good manners.

MAKE PUBLIC RESOLUTIONS: I don’t mean you go telling people about your condition but in times of altar calls in your church, seminars… come out boldly and declare right there to yourself in front of God’s altar that you are done with such additions. Make vows that will keep you in faith and be determined not to go back to your old ways. It takes a lot of courage to come out in public to confess your sins and to receive Christ but it brings the feel of seriousness and genuity hence spuring you to hold fast.

FORGET IT AND SHUN FEAR: Is it really possible to forget? Yes. Just live your normal life with God and stop thinking you have a problem. This is faith. Interestingly most people can’t stop out of fear of themselves. You no longer trust yourself because you feel so guilty about it-but just move on for Jesus has already overcome for you.
Say that to the devil and he will flee.

PRODUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT: Personally I don’t think you enjoy this more than making money or some other things you like. Try to be more engaged in other things and with time you will lose interest. You love the internet so much but it happens to be your main reason for doing this? ok. Why don’t you start a blog & dedicate your time to being useful.

SPIRITUAL EXERCISES: This is an oppression of the devil and Jesus was called to deliver the oppressed so, call on Him for deliverance. Make kingdom service, fasting, prayer and praising God a lifestyle.

I hope this was helpful to you. Please share this with your friends and also remember to share or add your views. God bless you as you do so.

How To Enjoy Financial Dominion

Abridges_to_prosperity_logofter man was created, God gave man dominion over everything on earth and this implies that man has been given to right and authority to control and to command any other thing in existence on the planet. Without financial dominion, your dominion can never be complete. No matter how wise you’re, your wisdom will be despised without financial dominion. This post shall be exposing to us all, the things God requires from everyone one of us before we can start enjoying it.

Before then, I want you to know that financial dominion is not an attainment but an entrustment-“if ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches”[Luke 16:11]. It therefore means that when you receives the true riches, don’t make it your own personal property. You’ve to see yourself as a channel of blessing to other people or an ordinary temporal caretaker before passing it on to the rightful owner. Whenever God blesses anyone, it is because He wants you to bless somebody else hence the scriptures recorded, “…I will bless thee and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.”[Genesis 12:2].

So now, what are the requirements of financial dominion?

  • Giving to the Church
  • Wisdom and Understanding
  • Giving to Humanity
  • Serving God
  • Hardwork
  • Meekness
  • Purity

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.

your comments are welcome. God bless you. Please share with your friends and be a blessing.

Causes Of Poverty

To every condition enjoyed or endured on earth, there is always a reason for it and so does poverty. To me, poverty is more than unemployment, and also beyond leaving below a dollar per day. Poverty in my own terms, is a disease of living below your supposed financial means. I shall be sharing with you some of causes of this deadly disease which are

NOT SERVING GOD
: Poverty brings sorrow and the scriptures said, “the sorrow Of them that hasten after other gods shall be multiplied”[Psalms 16:4] but the scriptures said, “if you obey Him and serve Him, you will spend your days in prosperity”[Job 36:11]

THE FALL
: After Adam and Eve sinned, the ground was cursed but Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. So, accept Him as your personal saviour.

NOT TITHING
: When you don’t pay your tithe, you lay a curse Of poverty upon youself.

SATAN AND HIS AGENTS
: Remember the parable Of the seed when a man planted good seeds but at night, the enemies came and planted tares.(Matthew 13:24-30) but you can “take the shield Of faith in order to quench all the fiery darts Of the wicked”[Ephesians 6:16]

STEALING
: “He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him”[Proverbs 28:22]

WRONG COMPANY
: “…he that followeth after vain persons, shall have poverty enough”[Proverb 28:19]


PARENTAL CURSES
: When a parent places a curse on his child be sure it’s going to follow that person.

LAZINESS
: “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand…”[Proverbs 10:4]

WASTEFULNESS
: “A waster is brother to him that is lazy”[Proverbs 18:9]

GREED
: ‘There is that scattereth and yet increaseth: and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty…”[Proverbs 11:24]

God prosper you.

How To Get And Grow Your Faith

STUDYING GOD’S WORD: Studying God’s word will always boost your faith as you will come across so many situations where people had been delivered from circumstances more severe than yours.

LOOKING UNTO CHRIST: “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame… lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds”[Hebrews 12:3]. This means emulating the level of patience exhibited by Christ and also setting your heart on the things you’re to gain if your faith impresses God.

BEING PRAYERFUL: The more you pray, the better your chances of getting prayer answers would be. Every prayer answer is a faith booster.

HEARING AND MEDITATING ON GOD’S WORD: The scriptures said, “faith cometh by hearing by the word of God”[Romans 10:17].

OBEYING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS:This is where the conscience based faith come into play. You can never be confident of
receive
ing anything from God if do not obey his commandments.

TESTIMONIES: Testimonies, whether personal or from others are a sure way of getting and growing your faith. From experience, I’ve seen that testimonies are capable of reproducing its kind as I’ve seen persons testifying of how they got theirs testimonies by keying into a testimony they heard.

Please if you know of any other way if boosting ones faith, please drop it via the comment box. God bless you as you put these key ways of growing to work in
Jesus name. Amen.

Why Do We Need Faith?

“And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to talk of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson and of Jephtah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight age army of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again…”[Hebrews 11:32-40]

The scripture above just gave us a brief summary of the benefits we tend to enjoy when we walk by the winning faith but I would love to break it down for us here. the benefits of walking by the winning faith are:

For obtaining promises
Abraham, Jacob etc

Conquering fear
Daniel and the 3 Hebrew boys


For defeating the devil

Jesus Christ

For righteous living
Joseph

For obtaining supernatural strength
Moses, Abraham, Samsom

For moving God to act in favour
The woman with the issue of blood, Blind Bartimus. etc

…those are just some of the benefits of having the winning faith. Please if you know of any other benefit, please drop them via the comment box. God bless you.

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]

    Benefits Of Signs And Wonders

    SUBDUING THE DEVIL: Without signs and wonders, the devil can never be subdued. All problems
    , diseases and oppression are of the devil and to deal with these, signs and wonders must be performed.

    MAKES YOU DIFFERENT: Signs and wonders is capable of making you different just as it made Daniel different from all other politician in his days.
    WITNESSING EFFECTIVELY: By witnessing effectively, I mean being able to prove to others that JESUS is the one and only true God. The apostles of old witnessed Christ effectively because signs and wonders followed them.

    PROOF OF BELIEF:The scriptures says, “And this sign shall follow them that believe…”(Mark 16:17). This means that for you to truly prove that you believe in God, you need to either perform or enjoy signd
    s and wonders.

    PROSEPERITY & PROMOTION: This is what most people in church are lookin for as everyone wants to prosper and do well. This is one of the things signs and wonders brings to the table.

    In Joseph’s life, signs and wonders was all around- right from his father’s house, he had the gift of interpreting dreams.
    In Portiphar’s house, he subdued the devil in Portiphar’s wife.
    In Portiphar’s house and also in the prison, he was different from others hence he was made to lead.
    When he interpreted Pharoah’s dream, he was being promoted from being a leader in the prison to ruling a nation.

    Know of any other benefit of signs and wonders? Please do well to share them with us via thw comment box. God bless you.
