Unbroken Promises

Even in the face of adversity and reproach, there’s increase, multiplication and abundance of blessings. God’s covenant with Israel is unbroken.

Unbroken Promises

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. [2] And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. [4] As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. [5] 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. [6] And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. [7] 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. [8] 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.

His promises are yes and amen!

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 Happiness

The things that bring gladness to a man are not oblivious to the heart. They are things that the heart knows and understand. Every time you wish for a thing, it’s because your heart desires it. And when that thing finally become a reality, you are happy.

Your Heart; Your Happiness

Your happiness is a function of the desires of your heart. You cannot be truly happy without satisfying your heart. Your heart is where all of your desires reside, and when those desires are fulfilled you experience happiness.

It is possible for you to be happy when you do an evil thing like an armed robber who stole is happy with the goods carted away. Also, a person who cheat looks happy because he is satisfied at another person’s dissatisfaction.

This is why the heart is a very complex part of you that must be guided what it feeds on.  A good tree only produces a good fruit and a bad tree will produce bad fruit.

Your true happiness lies in the abundance of the fulfillment of your heart. Look for those things that you long to achieve and you will bring smile to your face in a short amount of time.

Often, we are unhappy because we are not getting the things that we desire. A little effort to work at what our heart desires will most likely bring merriness to the heart.

You can live each day a happy person. This is possible if you can find what brings satisfaction to you. Your life’s fulfillment is heavily dependent on the satisfaction of your heart desires. You may need to stop doing those things that causes heart ache. Some of us needs to stop the evil acts we are engaged in.

In the true sense, evil actions does not have sustaining capacity to bring happiness to a man. So, you cannot remain a happy person doing evil. The Heart is designed by God to engage in activity that brings peace to humanity.

Find your heart and you will live happily the rest of your days.

Find Your Heart; Find Your Life

At the Heart is the crux of all matters. The heart determines the existence of all actions.

Your Heart; Your All

The Bible says that out of the heart produces all kinds of evil. The same heart can generate the opposite of evil. That is, the heart can produce good thoughts, good behavior and good life.

Today, I will concentrate on how you can use your heart to live a better life.
It is often said, “follow your heart” because it is expected that your heart flows the treasures of life.

If you are going to live a fulfilled life, you need to do what your heart desires to do. You cannot do what other people do or are doing and be fulfilled. You cannot live other people’s life and claim you live your life. You cannot live other people’s dream and purpose.

You’ve got to find yours and live it. It comes from what your heart desires. Don’t follow the multitude; follow your heart since it will guide you to where your treasure is.

So, I say, if your heart does not condemn your actions, then it might as well be what you are destined to do. Do it and find joy and satisfaction. You will live a fulfiiled life by doing so.

Good Vs Evil- where it all began

I have always thought about evils that prevail in our society today. The presence of evil and the people who commit such act called evil often worries me.

Good vs Evil

My mind flashed back to the garden of Eden. In the garden, God told Adam and Eve to avoid eating the apple because if they do, the apple will open their eyes to the world of Evil. So, we can deduce that Adam and Eve did not know anything called Evil or we can say that it did not exist then.

But we all know– they did eat the apple courtesy of the devil’s temptation.
Talking about the devil, if you remove the letter “d” from his name, we have “evil”. something tells me that the author of evil must be the devil himself.

Yes, devil was the first to disobey God and leads all other and he is still leading others to disobey God.
But one quick thing is that Adam and Eve chose to listen to the devil. So, had they not listen to that evil voice, we will probably not be where we are today.

So, choose carefully who and what you listen to.

There is always a voice telling you to do something bad or terrible. You can choose to listen to the voice or you can choose to shut the voice out.

If you decide to command the evil voice to shut up and get lost, I believe that “the voice” will realize that you know who you are and that you understand your authority.

Good has the overwhelming capacity to overcome evil to the extent that we allow or enable it.

Choose to do good today and see the world become a better place.
