Highly Favored

Happy New Year!
I wish you favor in the year 2022.

Favor often distinguishes a blessed person from others.

A good example is Joseph enjoyed favor at the Potiphar’s house.

Also, the angel of God announced to Mary that she was highly favored.

So, my prayer is that we will enjoy favor from God and excel in the year 2022.

Happy new year!

Peace be with you!

The angel came to her and said, “Peace be with you! The Lord is with you and has greatly blessed you!”

Genuinely, Mary was scared of what was about to happen to her. She was not married, but the angel told her she would be pregnant.

The shame and disappointment that follows the news could be unbearable. And Joseph was going to leave Mary because she was pregnant out of wedlock.

The point is that this was Mary’s fear. We all have our fears at different times, and we must confront our fears.

Fear is a tool from the devil’s hands, but the peace that comes from God counters and truncates fear.

The peace of God is evidence that we are on the right path. The peace of God guides our hearts and helps us understand that we are in the will of God.

The peace of God causes calmness and does not trouble the mind, but fear does all the opposite.

Fear is often from all the negativities instigated by the devil, while Peace is from God and is always a sign that everything is in order.

Peace be with you!

 

Your life shall be in order as we enter the year 2022. Amen!

 

Fear Not!

And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Luke 1:30

This is not the season to be afraid, and not any other time because the Savior was born, and He’s still with us.

He is Emmanuel.

Rejoice because your King is here to rescue you from all oppressions and evil.

Fear not!

Fear is the enemy’s tool to defeat you. Do not give the devil that opportunity. Fear not! Your Savior is here, and He will save you.

Throw that fear under the Savior’s feet.

Release that fear from your mind and receive the Peace of God.

This is the way.

No matter the situation, fear not!

Under the Oppressor – master/servant ordeal

Oppressor aims to keep you as long as possible in bondage and pain.

When a thief comes into a house, the intention is to dominate for that short time. You lose your belongings and possibly everything within a short time. The first thing they do is to create fear.

Fear captures your mind, and you’re locked in.

Anything that can control your mind can control your life and destiny.

So the Egyptians placed supervisors over them, oppressing them with heavy burdens. Exodus 1:11

The master wants to control and retain the servant. Therefore, the goal is to keep them in that position perpetually.

People can keep you and use you as they like without you knowing. It’s all about the access they have to your mind.

Poverty can continually wreak havoc in your life, and you keep enduring unbearable situations under the false idea that you are okay.

If you can convince yourself that you are okay, then you won’t know when you are not okay.

If you are poor, it’s the mind that is poor.

Government and those in authority only often give the minimum to ensure that the populace doesn’t complain. And when they complain, they offer just a little more to silence them. Do they care? You can answer this yourself!

You will remain a servant as long as you have a master controlling any part of your life or that has access to control the state of your mind.

Open your other eye– your mind, and be free!

By and by!

By and by when the morning comes;
All the saints of God  are gathered home;
We’ll tell the story of how we’ve overcome;
For we’ll understand it better by and by.

This song is a reminisce.

Now, I believe I have a clearer picture of it.
A lot is happening in our world that we don’t understand, but when the Lord comes, no more confusion.

Everything hidden will be revealed. So many questions beg for answers, but the request for answers shall be granted. It’s a matter of time.

God will reveal His purpose, and His plans shall ultimately come to pass, and the finality of it all is when He comes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, let’s thank God for all He has done, all He’s doing and all He’s going to do.

And let’s hope in God that tomorrow will be brighter and better than the past.

Peace!

Thank God!

Thank God I’m still here!

Thank God for the breath of life;

Thank God I’m not a victim of crime or gun bullet;

Thank God I do not lose anyone, although I don’t, by any means, wish that on anyone too;

Thank God for Peace;

Thank God for sound health,

Thank God for the past, the present, and the future.

And in everything give thanks. For in this, God is delighted.

The ultimate fate of all

We all will leave (die) this world and face the Judge of all judges.

And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, Hebrews 9:27

I’m confident there’s still a God somewhere who ultimately determines the fate of every man.

The system will likely fail you. Things may not work as you hoped they should; handicapped and unable to make any difference.

But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. Matthew 20:25

You can’t trust anyone to make it work for you because of the wickedness in the heart, more dangerous if it’s unrepentant, callous, and egregious.

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? Jeremiah 17:9

It is my hope and confidence that everyone will be judged by the ultimate Judge. Regardless of color or race, no one will escape the hands of the almighty God.

Elijah said, “I serve the Lord who rules over all. You can be sure that he lives. And you can be just as sure that I will speak to Ahab today.” 1 Kings 18:15

because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:31

So, there’s still hope that if everything else fails, God cannot. And that, in His time, He will make all things alright.

Re: When God is not God

I’m frustrated! What I expected is not happening. Oh no, but why, Lord? No one understands. I need help now, but none here to help. 

Sounds familiar to everyone. 

First of all, God cannot choose to not be God. This concept only exist on our mind when we feel disappointed that God did not do what we trusted Him to do.

This happens when we hold onto His promise(s) and did not see it happen.

God’s promises are “yes” and “amen”. It will surely come to pass. It’s just a matter of when. Remember, God honors His Word more than His name.

If you don’t know when an event will take place, you simply wait and on the lookout. If it doesn’t happen at the moment you expected, does this make Him incapable or limited,  or a liar? The answer is definitely “No”

So, what happens when we expect Him to do a promise and it does not happen? We surrender to His will. This is because He knows all things and He knows the best.

Learn to accept God both in the good time and also in the bad time. Learn from men of old and those who had gone through and going through a hard time right now and you will see that God has done and He is doing so much good for you than you can ever imagine.

Abraham was and is a good example. He didn’t know when God’s promise of a child will take place, but he waited. Although, he erred and missed it. His mistake still lingers on. At the right time, God visited him and his wife gave birth to Isaac.

God cannot seize to be God regardless of how we feel about Him, or the event of life.

Often, we are in a hurry, thinking that God is not doing His promise. Yes, He is! You just don’t see it with your naked eyes. 

Remember, He uses both the good and the bad to accomplish His purpose in life.

God was God in Pharaoh, and God was also God in David. 

So, whether it’s a good situation or a bad situation, God is still God.

..but there’s a single situation that God is not God. 

When you refuse to believe and doubt this Word, then God can’t be God. God is not God in your life when you doubt Him because He’s incapable of working His good promises in an unbeliever.

Therefore, accept His purpose and His will even when it does not makes sense.
God is still God regardless of our condition–good or bad.
