Known for the Truth

Speak the truth everytime

Jesus reigns for the cause of the truth. This is quite different from what we experience today. The world system is full of lies, deceit, and corruption. It is shameful to say that there are those who are subjects of the King of kings in the setting where people celebrate lies and corruption.

“In your majesty ride forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility and righteousness; let your right hand display awesome deed.” (Psalm 45:4, NIV).

People are reading you daily; let them see Jesus in you.

Jesus Paid the Price

Christ came to die for us. Jesus’ death was so momentous that it dealt with human’s sin against God. By believing in this great act of God to humankind, your liberation from the “curse of the law” is guaranteed.

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3, NIV).

What else do you need to accept Christ as your Saviour and Lord?

Running With Purpose

There are many people that run the race just because it is something to do.

You are running with a vision, going on a mission, or burning with a passion. If you do not belong to any of these, life is reduced to a burden. – Bishop David Oyedepo

“I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:20-21 NIV).

Never allow doubt

Never allow the seed of doubt take root in your life. If you must get to your goal this year, disengage from doubt and engage faith. Believe every Word of God coming to you and act on it with expectations. Cut off anyone who has been a vehicle for sowing doubt in your life. That fellow is a hindrance to your goal.  – Pastor E.A. Adeboye
But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind. A person like that, unable to make up his mind and undecided in all he does, must not think that he will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:6-7 TEV).

But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind. A person like that, unable to make up his mind and undecided in all he does, must not think that he will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:6-7 TEV).

Give Right

Many people give with a wrong motive! They give because of what they want to get. What God always looks for is the motive and attitude behind the act.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:38 KJV)

In whatever you do, always seek to please God with your resources. You can be sure that He cannot rob you.

Steps to Peace with God

1) God’s Purpose…Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life — forever.

The Bible says:

Because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at peace with God (Romans 5:1)

God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never die (John 3:16).

Jesus said:

“I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest” (John 10:10).

Since God planned for us to have peace and real life right now, why are so many people hurting or angry inside?

2) Our Problem…Separation From God

God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a joy-filled life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and a freedom of choice. Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery.

The Bible says:

All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s holiness (Romans 3:23).

The result of unforgiven sin is death. But God’s gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

The Bible says that disobeying God results in being separated from Him.

Our attempts can never unite us with God. Through the ages, people have tried many ways to bridge this gap and reach God — without success.

The Bible says:

Adam sinned, and that sin brought death into the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die (Romans 5:12).

You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead (Proverbs 14:12).

There is only one way to reach God.

3) God’s Remedy…The Cross

Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. He died on the Cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the gap between God and people.

The Bible says:

There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God (1 Timothy 2:5).

Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:18).

But God showed how much He loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful (Romans 5:8).

God has provided the only way — we must make the choice.

4) Our Response…Give Ourselves to Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and determine to obey Him for the rest of our lives. That way we can know God and find peace again.

The Bible says:

So you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with all your heart that God raised Him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this (Romans 10:9-10).

Is there any good reason why you cannot turn your life over to Jesus Christ right now?

How to give your life to Christ:

Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness.

Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.

Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for Him for the rest of your life.

Would you like to give your life over to Jesus Christ right now?

Yes, I would like to give my life to Jesus Christ

No, I am not yet ready and have question

Avoid Double Standard

We cannot be called children of God yet be comfortable telling some white lies. We cannot twist the truth in any matter and claim it is God’s favour and wisdom given to us.

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (1 John 5:20|KJV)

Do not live a double standard life. Be truthful as the Lord God that called you to salvation is.

Safe in God’s hand

It is true that no person achieves perfection on this earth. However, there is no such thing as a genuine believer sitting still after he has been saved. A believer must not become comfortable, complacent, lethargic, lazy or begin to think that he is safe and secure forever; therefore, he can sometimes do what he likes and give in to his own desires.

“I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14, NIV).

Are you still keeping your eyes on the goal? Are you still pressing on in Christ?

The Plan of God for me

God has thoughts and plans of welfare, peace, goodwill and hope for His people in every generation. When we go through difficult times and situations we are likely to conclude that we have been forgotten by God. We may think we do not count or matter to Him. We may even be so troubled to conclude that God does not see.

For I know the plans I have for you declares the LORD plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future,” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV )

As the LORD saw the plights of His children in Egypt and worked out their restoration, He will restore you also today in Jesus’name.

God’s Promises

God’s cheque does not bounce. His bank is ever buoyant. When God makes a promise, He will deliver.

l will make your battlements rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels and your walls of precious stones.” (Isaiah 54:12 NIV)

If there are calamities of any kind in the world, you need not fear because God has sworn to keep you safe always. Be encouraged!

Only God

The enemy of your soul cannot say anything over your life and it would come to pass if the Lord has not allowed it. You must be at peace because that enemy does not have the final say over your matter.

I am the gate. Those who come in by me will be saved; they will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10:9|GNB)

The Lord God is on your side. He will fight for you today and forever. All you need to do is to hold your peace and you will see the salvation of the Lord.

Salvation in Jesus Alone

Salvation cannot be earned through efforts and works; rather it is given freely by Jesus. It is only by entering through Jesus, the true Gate that we can experience and enjoy salvation, safety and satisfaction.
I am the gate. Those who come in by me will be saved; they will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10:9|GNB)

I am the gate. Those who come in by me will be saved; they will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10:9|GNB)
Stop trying to get saved, just enter through the Gate which is Jesus and you will experience the love, care and protection of the Good Shepherd.

Stop trying to get saved, just enter through the Gate which is Jesus and you will experience the love, care and protection of the Good Shepherd.

Dwelling in Christ

As God’s temple, His habitation through the Spirit, He beckons us to glorify Him in our mortal bodies and our endeavours. God cannot dwell in dirty hearts or bodies.

And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God fives by His Spirit. (Ephesians 2:22. NIV )

If God is building us, it is because He wants to make us fit for His purpose. We can allow God to complete His work in our lives as ‘a due above sins and promote a life of righteousness.

Striving With God?

To strive with God is not only foolish; it is self destructive. – Femi Okunlola

But doom to you who fight your Maker—you’re a pot at odds with the potter!Does clay talk back to the potter:’What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’ (Isaiah 45:9|MSG)         

Whatever unpleasant situation you are going through, do not resent them, but ask God what He wants you to learn from such experience to make you a better child of His.                                             

Your Responsibilities to Your Leaders

A Christian learns how to encourage and support leadership.

I. What is a leader?
A. If we as women are to be suitable helpers, we need to understand leadership.
B. Oxford Dictionary’s definition #1: “the person who leads, commands or precedes a group, organization, or country.”
C. Hebrew: nagiyd (naw-gheed) or nagid {naw-gheed’}; from 5046; a commander (as occupying the front), civil, military or religious; generally (abstractly, plural), honorable themes:–captain, chief, excellent thing, (chief) governor, leader, noble, prince, (chief) ruler.

II. Who has the right to choose who will be leaders?
A. Gen.1:27,28 Leadership is created by God, given dominion (rule over).
B. Psa 139:14 We are created by God, fearfully and wonderfully made. We are to recognize God’s power and give God the reverence and honour due Him.
C. The creator has the right to command how the created should work. God gave leadership to man. This is God’s choice. Woman was made FOR the man, as a suitable helper. This is God’s choice also. They are God-given roles. These roles do not change from situation to situation.
D. From the time of Eve, both men and women have fought against these roles. Today is no different. We, as men and women, are STILL fighting, but the roles have NOT changed in God’s eyes.

III. What areas of life require a leader?
A. Home – husband, father (the mother’s authority under the umbrella of the husband)
B. Church – men, elders.

  1. There is no command, example or inference that women were ever given leadership in the church.
  2. Ladies, be on guard!
    C. Society – men as leaders in government, work situations outside our homes.
    D. Think about these facts in considering the role of leadership in ALL areas of life:
  3. God made man first (Gen.2)
  4. Woman created from the man
  5. Woman created for man
  6. God addressed Adam when Adam and Eve sinned (Gen.3)
  7. Paul reviewed the roles in 1 Cor.11:3-9 and 1 Tim.2:12-13
  8. These roles were NOT established as punishment.
  9. A question: What happens to roles when a woman is a manager over men? What happens when everyone goes home?
    E. In all three areas, good or bad, leadership will impact generations to come.

IV. What is a leader responsible for?
A. Notice what is said of the ultimate leader: Isa 40:10 Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. 11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.
B. God fulfills the meaning of leadership – meekness: strength under control.
C. What do we ask and expect of God’s leadership?

  1. Psa.26:2; 139:23 – We want God to know all about us.
  2. Psa.5:8 – We want God to lead us in righteousness, to make the path straight.
  3. Psa.25:5 – We want God to teach us.
  4. Psa.61:2 – We want God to lead us to the rock that is higher than ourselves.
  5. Psa.139:10 – We want God to hold us safe.
  6. Prov.3:11; Heb.12:6 – God, as our leader, also has the right to discipline us.

D. A leader approved by God should do no less.

  1. He should know whom he leads (husbands, 1 Pet.3:7).
  2. He should lead with a righteousness life.
  3. He should lead us on the straight path.
  4. He should lead by teaching.
  5. He should lead by encouraging a higher level in goals.
  6. He should support the weak.
  7. He should discipline in love (fathers, Deut.8:5)

V. What “tools” does the man have to work with?
A. Men have a different makeup than women. They reason more logically, and are able to totally focus on a problem/goal. They are also physically stronger. (These strengths are generally true.)
B. God gives them confidence in their right to lead.
C. God gave men suitable helpers (Gen.2:18); followers who are to encourage and support the leaders.

  1. They too have qualities that support their role: nurturing, relationship oriented, “6th sense” (awareness), etc.
  2. A suitable helper is one who understands what God expects of men and can therefore effectively support their leadership.

VI. What does support mean?
A. Oxford Dictionary’s definition #2: “to give assistance, encouragement or approval to, therefore to be actively interested in.”
B. How does the apostle Peter describe what GOD expects in a suitable helper? 1Pe 3:4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
C. Consider these words which describe different ways we support and encourage our menfolk:

  1. We will accept our God-given role of “suitable helper.”
  2. We will honour, love and respect our men as leaders. Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord” (1 Pet.3:6).
  3. We are their backup. When decisions are made our men KNOW we are there for them when they need to delegate responsibilities.
  4. We will follow through whatever task we are assigned.
  5. We will give aid. This involves our physical efforts, our wisdom, our love, our respect.
    a. What if we disagree with a decision??
    (1) This situation does not give the helper the right to take control.
    (2) Make suggestions. Don’t “tell” the leader what may be a wiser way to go.
    (3) When time allows, let the decision “ride” until the man begins to think more clearly and take ownership.
  6. We will make sure our help is ongoing and sustained, even when the going gets rough.
  7. We will recognize our role is a subordinate role. Voluntary submission will be necessary. (That word obey. . .)
  8. We will defend the man’s right to lead. We will not allow others to tear down his efforts to lead.

D. We will realize and accept that men must learn how to lead. We will rejoice in our men’s efforts as they learn how to lead. (God-given roles are a lifetime effort of fine-tuning and adjusting, and commitment for both men and women.)

E. We will endure, whether the leadership is wise or foolish. We will not automatically replace our role of helper with a leadership role. Even a poor leader, even a wicked leader will benefit from the wisdom of a woman who remains within her role. Read the story of Abigail concerning her wicked husband (1 Sam.25). She saved her husband’s life, and those of her household, yet her attitude continued in the role of a suitable helper.

Let us stop making excuses for how we think and act concerning leadership and submission. We do not have the right to fight righteous choices by the God of heaven. May we fall on our knees, repenting of resistance and outright disobedience toward our fathers, husbands, the leadership of men in congregations, and the men who lead our country.

Grace Speaks

Legalism says God will love us if we change. The gospel says God will change us because He loves us. – Tullian Tchividjian

Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ . (Galatians 2:16, NIV)

Your spiritual growth qualifies you for God’s grace and liberates you from the scourging effects of the law. God’s grace alone is sufficient for you!

Praise Bring Down His Glory

Are you downcast, overwhelmed by unpleasant situations you are passing through? Are you being terrorised by the kingdom of darkness, and you are about to surrender? Why not try the power of praise? It will surprise you what the Lord will do!

“All together now—applause for God! Sing songs to the tune of his glory,set glory to the rhythms of his praise. Say of God, “We’ve never seen anything like him!”When your enemies see you in action,they slink off like scolded dogs. (Psalms 66:1-3|MSG)

Teach me, Lord, the power of praise no matter my situation.

What’s is Ruling Your Mind?

Handicaps can only disable us if we let them. This is true not only of physical challenges, but of emotional and intellectual ones as well. Real and lasting limitations are created in our minds, not our bodies. – Roger Crawford

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV).

What is dominating your mind? Don’t harbour thoughts of failure in your mind.

All for God

When you use your life for God’s glory, everything you do can become an act of worship. – Rick Warren

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV).

Welcome to the Second Half of the Year!

In this month of July, the Lord will look into your case and fight for you, He will give you all round peace and perfect all that concerns you, He will keep you and all your loved ones under His pavilion, you shall sing a new song and rejoice in the Lord in the mighty name of Jesus. Happy New Month.


A self-centered man is a discontented man. But the soul of the generous man, the man who lives for the interests and benefit of others, will find blessing upon blessing in his life. John MacArthur

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
(1 Timothy 6:6-8 ESV)

Ask for the grace to be a channel of blessing to others

Forgiveness is not optional

Even though sometimes forgiving some people might be very difficult because of the depth of pain they have caused us; we should always remember that forgiveness is not an option.

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you”. (Colossians 3:13, NIV)

As we have received forgiveness from God, we should in the same way be willing to forgive others.

True Repentance

God does not allow unregenerate sinners to do as they will… live as they please, and still go free. – Ben Mitchel

Thus saith the LORD unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins. (Jeremiah 14:10|KJV)

If God will reward you for good done, He will not overlook the sin that you refused to repent of too. All He wants is your genuine repentance. Can you now pray for repentance and commitment?

National Repentance

National repentance and transformation must start from God’s people. God’s people should repent from their sins and wickedness. There is no doubt that our land is very sick, yet God is saying the solution is not in the hands of politicians but the Church.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14|KJV)

Do you want God to heal this land and your life? Turn to Him in repentance today.

Wisdom for Leaders

The wisdom of any leader is in transparency and fairness of his/her judgment. Christian leaders must say to the Lord, give me the determination to be fair in all cases that I must decide aside sentiment, and be transparent and fair in all matters involving judgment.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 ESV)

Lord, give me the determination to be fair in all cases that I must decide.

God gives second chances

Listen and God will forgive you and blot your sins away; and will give you the power of the Holy Spirit to live a new life. God gives second chances. He is reaching out to you again to give you another chance to repent. It may be too late for you to repent. God will forgive you and restore you again. But if you continue to disobey and live in sin, God’s anger will descend on you like king Manasseh. That could be fatal. Don’t take God’s grace for granted. Rev. Uche Ikpa.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.(1 John 1:9)

Pray that the Lord will have mercy on you today

You Reap What You Sow

A farmer who planted good seed is expected to reap something during harvest, not the same quantity he planted but multiple folds of what he planted

The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred. (Hosea 9:7|KJV)

Friend, what are you sowing? Be aware that you are going to reap what you are sowing in multiple folds. If you sow deceit, lies, cheating, sexual promiscuity, hatred, murder and so on you will surely reap appropriate reward in no distant time. God will repay you with the same measure. Therefore, sow righteousness so that you can reap mercy

Your week is blessed

No matter how long it takes, the promise of God will never fail. As you go this week, all His promises for you will come to fulfilment, He will never abandon you, He will keep you and watch over you and your loved ones in Jesus’name. Have a victorious week!

Hearing From God?

Nothing hath separated us from God but our own will, or rather our own will is our separation from God. – William Law

The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord, “when I will send a famine through the land — not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.” (Amos 8:11, NIV)

As a Christian, how often do you hear from God? How much of God’s instructions do you obey? Is God still speaking to you like before or you are not hearing from Him again? Be sincere with yourself. If you have lost touch with Him go back now, He is merciful and compassionate, He will restore you.

Who is Your Friend,?

Friends are valuable asset

Friends are necessary in our lives. the importance of friends can not be overemphasized. But who is your friend? a friend that lead you to Christ, growth and godly character or a friend that lead you away from Christ or ungodly character?

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there aren’t some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame (1 Corinthians 15:33-34)

Check yourself today and see if there are friends influencing you negatively.
Ask God to separate you from such friends before it is too late.

Don’t give up

What we seem to be losing now cannot be compared to the reward that is prepared for us. What the wicked seem to be enjoying now should not entice us to join their sinful lifestyle.

At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD. (Zephaniah 3:20|KJV)

Are you trying to change your stand because you think you cannot cope with the challenges you are facing now? Don’t do that. Hold on to the end.

God’s steadfast love

God may not give answer to some of our
prayer requests because He is training us to
have absolute trust in Him at all times.
Christians are to be at their best when under
pressure of life. – Unknown

Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. (Psalms 33:20|KJV)

Are you troubled? Renew your hope and love
in God today. Expect your breakthrough in
ways beyond your imagination. Always bear
this in mind: God’s steadfast love over you
cannot cease, come what may.

Give It ALL to Jesus

Give it all to God: your past regrets, your present problems, your future ambitions, your fears, dreams, weaknesses, habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Put Jesus Christ in the driver’s seat of your life and take your hands off the steering wheel. Do not be afraid; nothing under His control can ever be out of control. – Rick Warren

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)

Surrender to Jesus?

If you are willing to believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and if you are willing to accept Him as your savior, then you are invited to pray this prayer with me:

Lord Jesus, I have been a sinner, please forgive me.
Thank You for dying on the cross for me and freeing me from sin.
Help us to live as You commanded us, “That we love one another as You have loved us.”
Please send me the Holy Spirit, and help me live by that Spirit.
I’m praying this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen


Going to church does not make you a Christian; nor does saying a prayer, going down an aisle, passing a catechism, telling yourself that you are, or trying to be a decent person. You can only be a Christian if Christ is in you, which can be tested and proven according to the scriptures.

And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26|KJV)

A Christian  is a new  man and  a man  with  the mind  of Christ not  by name.


When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. – Billy Graham

Woe to you…for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.” (Matthew 23:25, KJV)

You need to experience total victory from self and allow the Holy Spirit to guide your heart and speech

You can’t deceive God

You get faith by studying the Word. Study that Word until something in you “knows that you know” and that you do not just hope that you know. – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Will you say in God’s name what is not right, and put false words into His mouth? (Job.13:7)

Are you living a deceitful life or are you even being deceived? The only antidote to deceit is God’s Word. It is the true light that uncovers all forms of darkness. Study it.


  • We have all
    sinned and deserve God’s judgment.
    God, the Father, sent His only Son to
    satisfy that judgment for those who
    believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and
    eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless
    life, loves us so much that He died for
    our sins, taking the punishment that we
    deserve, was buried, and rose from the
    dead according to the Bible. If you truly
    believe and trust this in your heart,
    receiving Jesus alone as your Savior,
    declaring, “Jesus is Lord,” you will be
    saved from judgment and spend
    eternity with God in heaven.
    What is your response?

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus

I still have questions

Stay Strong

Keep Going. Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end. Roy T. Bennett

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.(2 Chronicles 15:7)

Stay strong, stay positive, and never give up.


It is not acceptable to the Lord for anyone to be unfaithful, whether such a person is being watched or not. A Christian who is not faithful does not belong to the Lord because if he or she is, then he or she would know that the Lord is, then he or she would know that the Lord sees everything. Nothing can be hidden from the Lord.

Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. (Matthew 24:45-46|KJV)

If unfaithfulness is found in anyone, it is a sin to be repented of and forsaken. Every day should be a day to be faithful.

God will reward everyone for what is done on earth, not just a particular time or day. Hence, it pays to be faithful in all things at all time.

The Race

So I run the race straight to the goal with purpose in every step. I am not like a boxer who misses his punches.- Apostle Paul.

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: (2 Timothy 4:6-7|KJV)

Remember that everyone will finish the race one day. What shall your report be?

God made you a Champion 🏆

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine. Friedrich Nietzsche

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.(1Timothy 4:12)

Welcome to your month of victory. Throughout this month, all your songs shall be ‘Thank you Lord’ Your testimony shall come and you will laugh last in Jesus’s name

God is Just

God is upright and faithful

God is a just God. He deals with people with equity; He is not partial in His judgment. He allows both the wicked and the righteous to continue in their deeds and then rewards each accordingly.

When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. (Psalms 75:2|KJV)

As you go out today, live with the consciousness that God is watching whatever you do – good or bad.

The psalmist reminded the wicked of the fact that God holds in His hands a cup full of His wrath and it is meant for those who do wickedly (Psalm 75:8).

God does not exalt His mercy at the expense of His justice. And in order to maintain His justice, all sin without exception must be punished.

God’s Hedge

There is a natural hedge of protection around God’s people, which can only be removed by them. Yes, you are the only one who can remove that hedge through sin. Even Satan does not have power to remove it.

I from now on will also not drive out from before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died. (Judges 2:21)

To keep God’s hedge around you, you need to keep a constant fellowship with Him through the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible study, holy living, and doing His will.

The Scripture says, “…whoever breaks an hedge the serpent shall bite him” (Ecclesiastes 10:8). Unforgiveness, backsliding, disobedience can make us lose God’s protection around us, and it is a dangerous thing to lose it.

The fullness of God

The mystery of God’s love will not be a mystery if we know all the answers. – Billy Graham 

And to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:19 NIV)

As a child of God, you must always bear it in mind that God has placed you in His kingdom for a purpose; you are expected to be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

The Day of Joy

Every man on earth desires joy, not sadness. We all detect sorrow. A joyous heart rejoices and feel good. But joy that is not from Jesus remains transient.

To have a joyous faith, you need a real encounter with Jesus. You need to admit where you have fallen short of God’s expectations.

A Prayer of David. Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. (Psalms 86:1-3KJV)

As you celebrate the newness of God’s faithfulness in life today, may the Lord cause a great shaking in heavens and on earth for your favour. You are blessed.

Abiding in Christ

Oh, that you would come and begin simply to listen to His Word and to ask only the one question: Does He really mean that I should abide in Him? The answer His Word gives is so simple and so sure: By His almighty grace you now are in Him; that same almighty grace will indeed enable you to abide in Him. By faith you became partakers of the initial grace; by that same faith you can enjoy the continuous grace of abiding in Him. Andrew Murray

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. (John 16:4)

Abiding in Christ requires a continuous efforts and improvement.

Favour of God

It is the favour of God that announces a man

Without the favour of God, it will be impossible to go far in life. His favour separate and move you from the ordinary to the extraordinary

Joel Osteen says “You don’t need everyone to help you. You just need one touch of favour, and you will accomplish in a split second what could have taken your whole lifetime”

A Prayer of David. Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. (Psalms 86:1-3KJV)

Do you desire the favour of God? Then you have to trust Him and obey His commandments, all will go well with you.

As from today, everywhere you go, the favour of God will be evident in your life. Amen
