How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 2.0

In the last post, I gave an illustration of how sweet old memories can wake up the sleeping giant in you and revitalize your passion. There is another way you can re-energize your spirit.

Those who wait on God receive strength and power. You can come to God to obtain this strength that you will need in times of weakness.

We may become faint and tired, but God never grows weary.
God’s wisdom is infinite or beyond infinite ( I mean you cannot imagine how smart God is), but man has little understanding.
God’s strength is limitless. He is never exhausted and does not get tired.

When your car is running out of gas, you quickly stop at the nearest station to refill.
It makes logical sense that, when you are tired and weary, you should run to God to be refilled and energized.

Talk to God about your exhaustion and ask Him for what you need to keep the passion. Remember, weaklings, are usually left out of the race.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 1.0

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.

Grace and help for all times

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.

Grace for all times

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.


He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” This promise alone can stir the courage and strength you need to keep going.
Today is more challenging than before, and you need the grace to live each day.
Do not lose your confidence in God.
“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!”

The Freedom We Have

If truly America is the land of the free, then it should be the land of the free. Its citizens should not have to protest to be free. There seems to be ample evidence that people, not just in America but all over the world, are tired of fighting for freedom, justice, and liberty.

The bible says that “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Well, it is absurd to think that some would not mind practicing slavery despite civilization, but people’s mind is free, and it will be an uphill task to hold people bound as it was a practice in the old days.

Paul the Apostle admonished a slave master (Philemon) to take another man, (Onesimus) not as a slave anymore but, as a dear brother.

Those in captive always seek to be free and will do anything to be free.

Rise to your freedom. Write it out! Do not be tired to express yourself with confidence. Slave masters do not care to continue to enslave you again if you are careless about your freedom. Teach your kids the same too.

We should live as a free man on planet earth. This responsibility rest on man and, God has given us free will to chose between good and evil. It is human who enslaves others and not God.

Therefore, we must strive to achieve our God-endowed purpose, which is to live, multiply, and subdue the earth.

Victory at last

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.

Victory @ last!


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.

Victory at last!

Extra benefits

If the odds are stacked against you, look out for where at least one opportunity exist and make maximum use of it.

Don’t ask amiss; ask aright.

God is constantly working to load His children with daily benefits.

Think about it, parents look after their own children. Definitely, God looks after His own.

Blessed forever!

Satan has lost his grip

The first thing the believers need to know is that they are a victorious people. This mentality alone will always defeat the enemy. Satan get weary of a Christian who doesn’t give up.

Your authority over the devil is the same authority that Jesus have. You have equal power in His name to defeat all wicked arrows of the enemies.

Therefore, understand that you are fighting from the victory stands. You can never be defeated without you defeating yourself. So, you must defeat yourself for the enemy to be able to defeat you.

Satan has lost all grips over you except those you allow him to have (if any). This mentality will always guarantee you a daily victory. So, even if you fall, if you keep getting back up, your authority and power over your enemies are forever guaranteed. Yes, forever guaranteed!

Do not believe in the devil’s lies. Check it out, we have equal status with Jesus because God adopted us like His Son, Jesus. This is who you are, but you need to know this.

Ephesians 1:18-21 NIV
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength [20] he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, [21] far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

Live daily with this mentality and you will never experience defeat again.

Still Standing

In a world where just about anything can flaw you, you need an exceptional grace of God to stand and keep standing.

It’s only by the grace of God that you can stand, not because you are a good person but because God is a good God.

It’s easy to fall to errors, problems and multiple mistakes in our world. Therefore, to stand strong and still function effectively, you definitely need the grace.

Standing up and staying strong is not an option but the only thing you need to do.

Many will fall, many will fail the test, many will make simple and grave mistakes but you can still stand like David and still bear the name “a man after God’s own heart “.

Everytime you fall, jump back up and keep moving. When Moses was confused about what to do and how to lead the Israelites through the red sea, God told him, tell them to “go forward”.

Your only option is to keep standing. So, defy all odds and get back up and stand and keep standing through God’s Grace.

Find Your Heart; Find Your God

The precious word of Solomon is “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”.

The days of trouble or despair or times we do not expect or find palatable are bound to come and pains may increase or discomfort pressure at every turn. During this period, it is the knowledge and the experience we have that often helps us survive and overcome such tides of life.

Your Heart- Your connection to God

It is important to know God so you will be able to overcome during difficult moment. Your knowledge of God guarantees you victory. It is the truth you know that can set you free. You cannot do what you have no idea nor knowledge of doing. And you cannot wait until the moment of trouble before you seek God.

Now has always be the best time to seek God and connect your heart to Him. Tomorrow is not always guarantee. Also, you cannot use the success of today to measure the breakthrough for tomorrow. Each day has its own battle and you must be ready to fight each battle in a unique way.

If your heart is evil or is far from God, then you have no other choice than to rely on other source of help. Other source of help are often not reliable as they often fail.

For instance, your intellect may fail you. Your success or material wealth may fail you. In fact, needless to say that friends and sometimes loved ones can fail you. I have found out that ONLY God cannot let you down no matter the situation. With God, help is always around the corner.

Nobody leaves in a vacuum so no one can say “I don’t need God.” You may not like to serve Him or love Him or even care about anything, but whether it is now or later at the end of life, the realization is that you either found out how much you have lived without Him or you jump for joy that you did not turn your heart away from God.

Therefore, create a space in your heart for God to reside. Let Him come in and live inside of you. Do not hardened your heart nor turn your attention to the things of life that fades away. A relationship with God is worth much more than gold. Find a place in your heart for God and you would have found eternity.
