NEW BIRTH

I hear the sound of my name in the wind

I stop. I look. I turn, but there’s no one here

Maybe it’s my mind playing games

Maybe it’s the wind playing tricks

But I hear it again, louder, clearer

This is no mind thing, this is not a wind trick

Someone called my name

Is this my Samuel moment?

Write it down, I hear, Make it plain, I’m told

But what to write? And what to make plain?

I  turn to the scriptures, searching frantically

By myself, I say, feeling I can do all things

After all, the Bible says so

Once again I hear my name

Trust me, Child

I am everything you need

Every step of  every way

Every breath in and out

Every blink and every thought

When you have come into full understanding then and only then will you enjoy the benefits.

I went back to the scriptures, this time not by myself but with the guidance of the Father

As I read, words become pictures

I see them now; before they were mere words

A better understanding,a deeper meaning, literally feeling like I can hold it.

Joy fills my soul; I know I can take rest.

SHORT READ: THIS IS IT!!!

Ever missed your way?

Growing up,I dreaded missing my way especially when I had no one with me. If you have been to the redemption camp you will have an idea of what I am saying, even in the same venue you can get missing and you begin to get confused, trying to recalculate your steps, going back and forth sometimes you even feel silly or when you misplace something especially when it’s something really small, you start speaking to yourself in hush tones: “I kept it here”. “When I left, I dropped it here.” It can be frustrating I tell you.Thankfully in this new age there’s Google Map for the tech savvy ones, I can’t count the number of times I have been helped by Google Map.

Generally in life we often miss our way, we do things that are off course, we get distracted and we lose focus. Most people know where they are headed, some know the purpose for their life but these “little yet major things” come our way and we miss it.

Feel that way? I have good news for you, Just as Google map helps you find your way especially when you have missed a turn you see it recalculating the routes so as to get you to your destination, that’s the same way God recalculates your routes because he has already told you that he has a purpose for you. So, instead of sitting and wasting time on being worried about how you have missed your way, stand up, dust yourself and wait for the next instructions on which direction to go.

Relax! God is still very much interested in your life’s journey. 🙂

Welcome to February

I’m here to encourage everyone who might need one at the moment. Maybe you started this year with so many expectations in your heart and January is gone, there’s nothing close to what you expected or maybe you even had plans for your January but none of your plan was executed due to unforeseen circumstances. Let me first break it down to you, there are 11 months left this year, that shouldn’t be a problem as well, because most times what takes other people years might just take you seconds if you only stay true to God. I read somewhere that God is not limited by our time instead we limit ourselves by helping God plan our time for us (I see you, assistant holy spirit 😑 ). Why don’t you let go and let God?

Whatever you have down for this month, write it down make it plain and read it out to yourself every day that you may run with it.  Stir up your life with God’s reality, God’s plan and God’s purpose and watch everything fall into place for you this month. “Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down”.  “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes”.

Also as this is the month of love, why don’t you take up a challenge and show some love to people out there not as a cliché but because you truly appreciate them. Each day of this month, take out time and appreciate the ones you have no matter how little it can be, it will go a long way.

Have a fabulous and love filled February.

Sometimes…

Sometimes you want to ask why

Sometimes you just want to curse God

Sometimes you feel all odds are against you

Sometimes you are done hearing all the “It is well” “God will do it

Sometimes you just wonder what you didn’t do right

Sometimes you begin to think about all the sins you have committed between the time of the promise and the fulfilment

Sometimes you just want to end it all

Sometimes you conclude that God has forgotten you

You even think HE has gone on a “vacay

Sometimes you think it’s time to throw in the towel

Why don’t you pick up that towel, wipe your sweat and tears, move on

Because, ALL THE TIME, God was and is still there!

HE will sort you out.

In the beginning, the Earth was without Form and Void, until God began to speak. It is interesting however that God called everything into existence except Man. When it came time to form you, Heaven was at full attention, and so Man was Formed by God from the dust of the ground. This mode of Formation required a touch and from the days of Adam till now Man has required a constant touch from God.

In Clinical Psychology there’s what is called “Deprivation Dwarfism” this basically is the separation of New born babies (Newly Formed) into two categories. Both categories are given the same love and attention, they are fed the same thing (Hear the same Word from God), are in the same place (Go to the same church). The only differentiating factor between the two categories is that one set are ‘Touched’ in terms of being carried, drawn close and held while the other set are not. After a while it is noticed that the set of those who were ‘Touched’ end up growing Bigger, Stronger and generally more Functional than the latter.

This is the same with God and Man, you cannot be Formed and simply run off as though you are self sufficient. Yes, you hear the word, Yes – you go to church but the lack of a touch has left a lot spiritually dwarfed! In this context the touch is being Filled with the Breath of life, with Holy Ghost and with Power.

It’s a wonderful thing to be Filled but it also places a heavy responsibility on us, because then you have Give as you receive. We all know receiving is the easy part, giving is where the challenge is. A container filled out of capacity will probably explode, so will an over charged battery or an over-fed person (LOL…but we know Obesity kills). This happens when you receive so much and give absolutely nothing back.

If you have been Formed & Filled, then you ought to Function! If you purchase a phone or anything at all that does not function in the purpose it was created for, you either return it to get a replacement or if it had functioned but didn’t go as far as expectation you toss it aside (Separation from the Body of Christ). You have got no other choice than to Function!

The question you may ask is Function where and in what capacity? Well to begin with we know God’s expectation for us from His Word…Prosper, Be in Health, Have Dominion, Subdue, Replenish.

Understand that we need a constant touch and we definitely need a constant Filling. That is why a Hug or a kind word in the middle of a crisis can make all the difference, just like you need to charge and recharge your mobile devices to get you through the day sometimes you need to be Filled a little more than others to be able to Function in that thing God has called you to.

Are you Formed? Are you Filled? Then you have to Function!

Bad investments yields no profit, if heaven has put this much in you, what are you waiting for? Go and yield profit!

Receive Fresh Unction to Function

Did you know?

In the spirit of Christmas, I’m sure we are all familiar with the 12 days of Christmas song. I remember how I sing it joyfully every year, little did I know there was a greater meaning to it. I learnt it recently and so I thought to share.

The true love mentioned in the song is God and the Me is us…

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me…

A Partridge in a Pear Tree

The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ’s sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: “Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . .” (Luke 13:34)

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me…

Two Turtle Doves

The Old and New Testaments, which together bear witness to God’s self-revelation in history and the creation of a people to tell the Story of God to the world.

On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me…

Twelve Drummers Drumming

The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles’ Creed: 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church, 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.

WOW!!! Right? Now that we all know, we can sing the song with a greater understanding.

Seasons greetings folks😆
