There are several ways you can motivate and wake up the sleeping giant in you, but I have thoughtfully crafted this that I believe is useful for all times. Refresh your old memories that bring sweet feelings. Although this seems simple, you have to recollect all of the good feelings you had in the past.
Old memories of your accomplishments, successes, and breakthroughs can ignite the fire and resurrect the passion you once had.
Such memories can be a successful pass of a graduate or any school examination, your first job, your first paycheck, etc. Such memories often trigger passion and strong desires that can motivate you and push you towards your goal.
If you have lost the desire to pray, remember how God answered your prayers in the past. Remember how you pray regularly and the results of the prayers. Remember how you were zealous for God. This may likely kindle the fire to wake you up from your slumber.
Recollect your old memories and let them ignite the fire within you by waking up the sleeping giant.
The grace that keeps you standing when you first believe can keep you standing during your crises and tough times. God’s grace is always the same and useful every time and for all situations.
Remember how committed you were and how excited you were when you first believe. Tap into that same help that grace offers. All you need to gain victory is the same grace and help that was available for you. It was useful in the past; it is very useful now.
Stay connected to your calling. Today, in this world we live in, it is easy to lose hope and faint. It is even easier to get deceived with lies. In the quest for searching for the truth, many lose their true calling. It is easy to lose hope in the face of despair, especially when you have lost a dear person or a thing. It is easy to become gullible if you do not have a strong and firm grip on the truth.
Jesus Christ said that because sin shall abound, many people’s love for God will grow cold. Amidst all these possibilities listed above and more, you can stay connected to God and your true calling by holding on to the truth that kept you till the moment you have your first doubt. The same faith that keeps you before can keep you going. In a simple word, do not give up on your calling. Stay strong in the faith you once believe and do not let the troubles of this life discourage you. Faithful is He who saved you, and He can save you to the end if you do not give up. Staying connected to Him will let you appreciate that God will not leave you; neither will He forsake you in your time of need.
One of the fundamental challenges of man is paying attention to basic instructions or obeying simple instructions. It’s important to remind ourselves that we are here today, with all our problems and a world of chaos, because Adam and Eve couldn’t follow through on a simple instruction.
Obedience to God’s instructions is key to unlocking your blessings. Think of a child who disobeys. You won’t be pleased not only because the child doesn’t listen but also because the child may, in the process, endanger his or her own life.
God’s standards will not change. If it’s a call to pray, pray! If it’s a call to talk to someone about a business or seek advice, do it without arrogance or pride. If it’s a call to be patient or wait, it is wise to slow down at the moment. Rushing or working round the clock to speed up the arrival of your breakthrough will not necessarily move God to act.
Let’s learn from the patriarch– Abraham did not receive the blessing-his descendants did– he had to wait. Moses waited for 40 years before he could lead the Israelites nation. Joseph spent time in prison even though for the wrong reasons but, when the time came, he became king. David was anointed king as a teenager. He never became king until he was 30 years old. Jesus Christ fasted and waited for 40 days before he commenced His ministry.
Many of our daily struggles would be over in a short time If we would follow simple instructions.
Therefore, listen and learn, and most importantly, obey so you can reap the maximum benefits.
1 Samuel 15:22 NIV
But Samuel replied: “Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
Deuteronomy 15:5-6 NIV
if only you fully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today.  For the Lord your God will bless you as he has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you.
Joshua 1:8 NIV
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
God does not force His will upon anyone. He allows us to make our choices so that we do not have to blame Him for our mishap. God cannot and will not violate the free-will of man. The ability to make choices and decisions is at man’s disposal.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
It is said, “you cannot have your cake and eat it.” once eaten, it’s gone! The story of the talent resonates this statement. Two of them invested the little they have and gain extra while the last guy did not invest but waste the only coin he had. The result is simple. The two that invested their coins gained extra coins while the last guy did not but lamented all day long.
The extra money you invest today yields extra change for you in the future. The time you invest in your marriage makes a happy family. The investment you put into the lives of your kids provides for them a great future. Education is an investment and the result is a great career.
God gave His Son to redeem us from sin. Now we have a glorious future ahead of us.
To reap a great harvest, you must sow seeds. And do not forget, whatever you sow is what you will reap.
So, I say to you, invest into your life, your marriage, business, children, your knowledge of God and to humanity and expect a great harvest.
Take time to do things that will affect your future positively. Invest today; harvest tomorrow.
When Jesus said, “it is finished”, I perceived He was saying that He’s conquered all and defeated the enemy.
Before making those affirmative words, He was heavily burdened by the sufferings but afterwards, He declared victory over sin, Satan and death.
So, as believers who believed in Him, you rise up not in fear but in faith and declare your victory over sin, Satan, death, failures, failing marriages, failing businesses, falling projects, sicknesses and diseases, including coronavirus. Victory is ours in Jesus name
You must get up and say to that “thing”, whatever it is, “get up and get lost!”
the weakest believer on any day is stronger than the enemy the moment He recognizes and exercise the God given authority.
Revelation 12:10 KJV
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Salvation is here for those who put their trust and hope in God who never fails. The power of God in Christ Jesus is stronger enough to defeat sickness, disease and death. Salvation is here and as we gaze at Him, we receive our deliverance.
Romans 13:11 KJV
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
This is the time to draw closer to God than ever. When all else fails, we have an assurance that God never fails. He always makes a way where there is no way. Let us use this moment of time to draw to saving grace of God and our deliverance will surely come. Amen.
Acts 4:12 KJV
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Although science is very good (and I know this) but it cannot save if God who is the giver of everything withholds the knowledge. If we lack anything, it makes sense to ask God who gives it. Our salvation is from God and in Him. There is no other way by which we can be saved other than the way God has made. Let us run to God with full assurance that God is our helper and lifter of our soul.
Psalm 27:1 KJV
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Fear can kill and most of us can acknowledge this. Faith is not being unreasonable. it is simply trusting in God’s word and in His promises. For an ordinary mind, this is super hard because it often does not make sense. If it makes sense, why do we have to trust God? It is because it does not make sense that is why we trust Him. You do not expect or hope for what you already have but for what you do not have.
Psalm 37:39 KJV
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
In this time of trouble, the Lord is our strength and our capability. If we trust Him He will save us and deliver us from all our trouble.
Even in the face of adversity and reproach, there’s increase, multiplication and abundance of blessings. God’s covenant with Israel is unbroken.
God had an intimate conversation with Abraham– Genesis 17:1-2,4-8 KJV
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.  And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.  As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.  Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.  And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.  And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.  And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
What can you say? if God is for you, who and what can be or stand against you? God will never leave us nor forsake us as He promised.
God has said that He will honor His own Word more than His name. If He has said it, then you have to hold Him by His Word. By defaults and records, He has never failed.
So, why run to man when you can run to God? If truly God has called you and afterwards you encounter challenges on the way, why consult a man? Why not talk to God about it?
And better still, you can challenge those difficulties by addressing them in the name of Him who called you. Simply, talk to God about your problems not to man. Why would you give the honor of solving your problem to man when God said He would not share His glory with anyone?
Think about this for a second, would you like God glorified or man glorified?
God is more than reliable. He has promised and He will never fail even if it seems otherwise.
Don’t be deceived by the circumstances surrounding your life right now, instead shout for joy because you have overcome the world.
