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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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]

What Are Signs And Wonders

Signs and wonders are not ordinary occurrences, the are supernatural. When they happen, science, nature, philosophy is proved wrong.

Signs and wonders brings about surprises and joy.

‘When God turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dreamed. Then was our mouth filled laughter…'(Psalm 126:1-2)

Without being born again, you cannot be an agent of signs and wonders. 1

‘And when He had called Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power…'(Matthew 10:1)

Signs and wonders do not occur on their own, they have to be provoked.

God is the true source of signs and wonders.

It takes faith to be able to provoke signs and wonders. Without faith it is impossible to please God. If you don’t pleaseGod, do not expect anything special from Him.

Signs and wonders are to be worked out. You don’t just think it or talk it, you have to try you faith on it just s Peter tried his faith on walking on the sea and he succeeded

Signs and wonders are pointers to the presence of God. ‘And a great multitude followed Hi when they saw the miracles He did…'(John 6:2)

Signs and Wonders are entitlements of every believe.

‘And this signs shall follow them that believe;In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak in new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'(Mark 16:17-18)

Benefits Of Soul Winning

I never knew that soul winning had so many benefits until one of my pastors shared some of the benefits with us in church and I shall be using this medium to share them with you. The benefits of soul winning are:

DIVINE BREAKTHROUGH:
The divine breakthrough enjoyed here is for both parties. In my church, so many testimonies have been gotten via the platform of soul winning. When Christ went out for soul winning, every of his words had power. This power brought about a net-breaking draught of fishes in the same river that Peter couldn’t catch anything all night.
We have a fair God who loves fairness and justice. Had it been that Peter didn’t catch anything when Christ asked him to cast his net into the river, he wouldn’t have given his life to Christ and as such, died a sinner. Just try to imagine what would have happened on judgement day if Peter was to say he refused to give his life to Christ because there was no evidence to show that He was Christ. This same thing can happen with you. All you need is to speak and things would just start happening because God wouldn’t want anyone who refuses to give his life to Christ to have a commanding excuse as the one stated above.

DIVINE BEAUTIFICATION: Most people do not go out for evangelism or for soul winning because of shyness or some minor limitations but the simple truth is that whenever you go out for soul winning{with understanding}, you would be beautified by God just as the bible recorded, ‘And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever'[Daniel 12:3].

DIVINE PROTECTION: The scriptures says, ‘…Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. And these sign shall follow them that believe: in my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongue; They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them and they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover'[Matthew 16:15-18].

DIVINE HEALTH: Immediately you got born again, that scripture above is being directed to you and as such, you are being seen as a messenger or an ambassador. The bible says, ‘A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health'[Proverbs 13:17].

PRAYER ANSWERS: One of the conditions attached to prayer answers is soul winning- ‘Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should in and bring forth fruit{win souls} and that your fruit remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it you'[John 15:16]

DIVINE WISDOM: The bible says, he that winneth souls is wise. I do love scriptures which sound like this. It very apt and direct. That passage simply means that if you are able to win souls for christ, whether you like it or not, wisdom has been deposited in you.

Wow! Soul winning really pays. Start now!!!

BENEFITS OF HONESTY

There are so many wonderful benefits of honesty that everyone would like to enjoy them. In this post, I shall be giving you only 7 benefits you enjoy when you’re honest. They are:
IT PROVOKES GOD’S BLESSING: The only thing that can make God bless you, is pleasing Him and living in honesty is one of the ways of pleasing Him. The scriptures says, ‘lying lips are abomination to the Lord, but they that deal truly are His delight'[Proverbs 12:22]. When God blesses you, you will have lack of nothing as written, ‘…walk honestly with them that are without that ye may have lack of nothing'[1 Thessalonians 4:12].

IT BUILDS YOUR CONFIDENCE: Whenever you pray, you need to have confidence in the sight of God in order to get your reward. Honesty is one of the things that boots you confidence as it gives you a clear conscience. The scriptures says, ‘But having renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness…but by the manifestation of the truth, commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God'[2 Corinthians 4:2].

IT GIVES YOU PERSONAL TESTIMONY: Honesty gives you some form of integrity that would turn into a personal testimony. With this personal testimony, Hezekiah prayed thus, ‘…Remember me now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart and have done that which is good in thy sight…'[Isaiah 38:3]and immediately, God heard him and prolonged his life by 15 years.

YOU LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST: One of the main reasons why christians do not preach Christ, is dishonesty. After dealing dishonestly with others, it takes away your pride as a christians and as such, you can’t preach Christ again in order to avoid shame. When you deal honestly with people, they would always want to know the church you attend and you might win souls for Christ just like that.

YOU WOULD BE REWARDED BY MEN: The scriptures says, ‘…whatsoever ye would have men do to you, do ye even so to them'[Matthew 7:12]. A man reapeth whatever he soweth, for,’… with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you'[Mark 4:24]. The scriptures can never be broken.

PEOPLE TRUSTS YOU: Nobody would trust a thief, just as you would not. To be trusted, you have to be honest.

YOU WILL HAVE GOOD SUCCESS: Good success is the success achieved through honest means. Any success achieved through any other means normally turns into failure at the end.
