CHALLENGES €£¥

Challenges are what shapes us in life.
Without it we will have no principles, determination or motivation. Without  it we will not know how to appreciate our Creator God.
Out of challenges come men of honour
Out of it comes testimonies, accomplishment and unimaginable lessons.
So when you go through one, do not grumble, curse God or blame your linage seat calm and take in the lessons.

A Poem To The Holy Spirit

My Best Friend, my companion, my Guide.

The love I have for you is indescribable
For you mean so much to me that without you I am no being
You are my light, the centre of my life.
Without You things fall apart.
You have in my lifetime taught me a lot
To love, talk, dress, ask, plait hair, look good ,appreciate myself, treat people well, read, think, desire, dream, pray, fast, tithe, give offerings and good gifts.
If I go on about all you have taught me I will not finish.
You remember all those words of wisdom by prophets you tell me to hold unto and for years after you keep reminding me to pray them.
Those times when I will forsake you and feel I can do it on my own and when I get stuck you pick me right up and show me what to do
Those nights I will cry and you will comfort me and tell me it is only a test it will not last too long, it will not kill me but it will build me and make me a better person.
Those times that I will verbally abuse myself and you will turn up and tell me to stop that I a…

Death and Resurrection of Jesus (Part 1)

When I heard of the attack that happened in Brussels, I thought hard on it and the more I think about it the clearer the picture of what these suicide bombers believe in. They believe in a cause - of which you and I know it’s all wrong. Yet they were willing to die for that cause. Beloved Jesus Christ came and died for mankind (the greatest cause). Jesus took it upon Himself and died in our place that the power of sin and death might be broken (Hebrews 2: 14). Beloved, how serious are you with your relationship with God? Are you keeping your faith now because this is the Lenten season? Is this what the Bible truly say, that we follow Jesus during a particular period of time and then continue in our worldly ways at other times? It’s time for us (the church) to rise up and live as children of God and not like the people of the world (1 Corinthians 1:10 - 17). When Jesus was about to die on the cross, there were 7 last words He spoke:
Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they a…

WHOLEHEARTED COMMITMENT (DEUTERONOMY 6: 1 - 12)

I was in the church one Wednesday for bible study, and our teacher brought home the “Parable of the Talents” to our day to day life style. He made me understand the more that in as much as we are in the church and in different departments, we should be sincere and fully committed to what we are doing. Because when we appear before God we will not give excuses such like: your colleague, or your brother, or your spouse, or your boss, or even your departmental leader is not fully committed to what he or she is doing that is why you became nonchalant and also refused to do your work. You and I should not follow the multitude to do evil (Exodus 23:2; Daniel 3: 8 – 18). May the Lord have mercy upon us all in Jesus name…Amen!! This is a hard saying: It is easier to manage poverty than to manage wealth. This was the reason why Moses taught the people of Israel all that God had commanded him to teach them. He (Moses) urged them to be careful in listening and obeying all that was written most es…

PRINCIPLES OF BIBLICAL SUCCESS

Success is often associated with accomplishments or having things such as lots of money, material possession, or high position of power. But have you ever considered what success is in God’s sight? Let us see what is the world’s view point of success compared to God’s view point as found in the bible. Dictionary meaning of success: it is the favourable prosperous attempts or endeavours. It is the attainment of wealth, position, honours or the like. This definition of success is based on tangible things and what other people think of you. There is a part of success that is true and founded upon God’s word. Success for a believer is based on the word and not attempts at gaining worldly popularity or material gain. To understand true success (Joshua 1:8) we need to gain knowledge of some basic principles that can help us as we need to gain knowledge of some basic principles that can help us as we strive for success in God’s eyes. These principles are some of the things that we need to prac…

GOD’S WILL (PART ONE)

Having made known to us His will according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself (Ephesians 1:9 NKJV). The will of God is no other than God Himself; it is essential to Him; it is His nature and essence. God did not leave us without the knowledge of His will. This is why the Bible is made accessible both to the rich and poor, the young and the old. We have no excuse to fail in life and not to fulfil our God given purpose. God promises to reveal to us His will if we genuinely want to know. The Lord’s plan leads to welfare – happiness, well-being, and success; not calamity – trouble, affliction, and ruin. Understanding this principle is essential to discovering the Lord’s plan and purpose for us which will save us from financial, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual stress. We are in the first month of the year, many have set new goals and new plans for themselves. The tragedy of life lies in having no goals to reach. This year is still very young that is why you need to …
