“Oh God, I thank you for a good day “. This was my prayer anytime I get to my work place and also when I close from work. 178 more wordsGod is good – all the time
“I am the Lord your God who teaches you to profit and who leads you in the way you should go”. Isaiah 48:17. Almost 2 decades ago after I finished …Are you Looking for Profit?
Hi 👋🏿 there dear, it’s been awhile I just came to remind you to not hand over on praying and working.
You have trusted God too long enough to offer up . Probably you’re thinking 🤔 He’s taking to much time to answer the prayers you delivered to Him when the year commenced .
Don’t stop praying and don’t pack up also, at the appointed time He’s getting to come through for you . You’ll surely share that testimony!
So don’t feel overlooked .
Don’t feel rejected .
Don’t be so morose about life.
But preferably be joyous and glad .
Don’t consider looking elsewhere for help aside from God . We all get tired sometimes with our walk with God, but know that it’s safer to steer with Him . Unknown to you He’s seriously working behind the scenes, soon He shall dispatch the delivery guys (His Angels 👼) . That one word will turn things around for you and your family .
So keep it up praying .
Keeping on performing on yourself.
Press on, build more capacity for the breakthroughs coming!
So don’t be worried in the least , you shall sing that joyous song !
Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.
A cool day it was when my colleague called to inform me about a change of plans concerning our project.
He said to me “yo bro don’t worry about supper today, it’s been covered by the client we’re working for”.
I had joy written all over my face 😊lol who doesn’t like food, tell me ?
So we went on site,did what we had to do . Upon finishing my colleague and I were both expectant of this food .
But hmm! Our client didn’t show up, what had been joyful from the office to the site was turned into sadness .
My colleague was like “bro let me call him perhaps he’s on his way”. Being hurt 😞 I just smiled and said oh don’t worry may be another time he will bring the food . But deep down “THE THING PAIN ME LIKE SOMETHING”!
Fast forward this morning as I sit in my office to reminisce about how my day was yesterday. It just dawn on me, the incident just replayed in mind .
It’s very true when the Bible tells us not to put our trust in man .
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
Just as my colleague and I didn’t have supper on that faithful day because we placed our trust in our client who promised us food, probably you have also placed your trust in an uncle/auntie abroad to make you join him/her.
A brother/sister who has promised you the new play 🎮station.
A friend who has promised you that contract.
To avoid any disappointment ,trust in the LORD my dear friend He won’t disappoint you . It is God who will touch the heart of man to be of a blessing to you .
I repeat TRUST IN THE LORD he won’t cut your expectations short .
Truth be told what the Bible says about nothing being new under the sun is so true .
Today let’s look at the account on Cain and Abel .You sure do know that account right ? Hmmm!
In our day now, some friends and even family members won’t be happy with/for you just because you have given a solution to a problem or might have said something that caught the attention of your boss or parents .
But should it be so ? Oh know !
Just as these brothers Cain : a tiller of the land and Abel : keeper of sheep. God has given each human what he/she should do on this earth to benefit others and most importantly offer sacrifices to God just as He has blessed you .
God had Respect for Abel’s Sacrifice but didn’t do same for Cain . 🤔 What could have caused that ? Ok see , in my study I have come to the understanding that Abel gave his best of offering to God but Cain didn’t .
This happens in our homes,offices and churches . People don’t want to give their best of best to God ,their parents and bosses but expect the best of best .
No ! It doesn’t happen that way.
So next the time you see a brother/sister make some progress in life don’t envy and don’t be jealous.If you also give your best it will be accepted.
And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Don’t do as Cain did beloved ,don’t allow envy and jealousy to eat you up and make you [SLEW] a brother/sister .
Slew here could stand for many other things as : •backbiting
•speaking ill of a bro/sis
And many other things, do the right things to be accepted .
May God strengthen us all to give our best .
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
God’s word is to be trusted; He has promised to go before you . Lead you and prepare the way you take .
One way or the other you might think God ain’t with you ,beecause of certain happenings in your life . But through it all know that God is with you ,He’s with you to glorify you . He’s with you to fulfill you .
Don’t allow the situation you find yourself in make you doubt God !
God’s word is as trustworthy as it was in the days of Moses .
Hold on to God’s word , If He has promised to go before you ; then He’s before you . If He’s has promised to be with you ; then He’s with you !
He will surely take you to that promise land and you shall eat from it .
Whatever situation you find yourself in isn’t hopeless, press on ! Know that there is a testimony in every challenge..Keep on and Faith on !!!
Always remember that God is you .
“I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
It’s my prayer that your faith in God does not fail !
Be strong .
Do not be afraid .
Do not be discouraged .
God is still Good !
A couple of years ago, I had recently arrived in California for a fellowship. The host family I was staying with had a garden and in it was a variety…A budding fig tree? Impossible
The world 🌎 is in need of what you have .
It’s useful , we disregard what we posses because we think it’s a waste .
What you have in your in hands can change lives .
What is nothing to us is something to God.
God never directs our attention to what we don’t have, but to what we do have even though it seems small.
“Sampson had a donkey jawbone to slay a thousand men. Ruth had grain gleaned from the field. David had his sling and stones to defeat the mighty Philistine champion. The unnamed boy had his five loaves and two fishes.The woman had an alabaster jar filled with oil to anoint Jesus. We all have something in our hands. As we release what is in our hands, He releases what is in His! He is ready and willing to anoint what is in your hands. Are you willing to let him”?~~Lisa Bevere
What are you presenting to God to use ?
Is it your :
•Talent and many more .
God can’t anoint emptiness .
That which you withhold , in your hands reveals what lies in your heart .
If God has placed something in your hands it means you have control over it .
Like God asked Moses ; what he had in his hands .Today He’s asking you the same question. What do you have in your hands ?
📖: Exodus 4:2
And the Lord said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.
There’s no doubt that life can give you some painful moments ,that will overwhelm you all the time . But it’s up to you, to know that there’s a God in Heaven who is ever faithful and His mercies endures forever more.
Are you weak?
Do you feel rejected?
Are you anxious?
We cry, and we keeping asking God why life ain’t being fair to us because we failed trying to do something .
Ow no ! God is closer than you think , he hasn’t forgotten you .
He’s on your case ,he’s working behind the scenes just to make things best for you . Therefore I tell you dear friend don’t be anxious ,be hopeful your situation is changing.
Truly your friends will by all means try and encourage you ,but it’s best if you learn to encourage yourself .Gather yourself together and be fully persuaded that something beautiful will emerge from the situation your find yourself in . Allow yourself to be taught by the pain .
You are not useless!
Your situation isn’t hopeless !
Wipe away the tears, forget about the pain, sorrows, shame, humiliation etc of yesterday. Today is loaded with presents 🎁🎁🎁
Remember what He said in Jer 29:11, “ I know the thought that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thought of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”. So you can see now that the devil has been deceiving you. God has a good plan for you.
Hope on ! God is keenly on your case don’t panic, cheer up my dear .
Are you born again?
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. Amen
Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves.
Gratitude tends to foster the character strengths of love and kindness .
Gratitude is a very powerful energy in a person and adds an immeasurable quality to one’s life. Out of a grateful heart comes a deeper and ever growing awareness of the importance of appreciating everyday life.
An Estonian Proverb says, “Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
Nobody has ever made it in life without the help of others . You can’t get to the top without the help of others . It’s funny how we hear around us , people saying “I am self made “. How interesting it is .
If we could just pause for a while and remember how some people have played a major role in various aspect of our lives then we will realize that gratitude is key .
Many at times we turn to forget those who pushed us to the top ,when we get there .We forget the pot from which we drunk of , the hands that fed us .We even forget to appreciate the life God has given to us .
Let’s have some wisdom in the account below
And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
We are very quick to call for help when we need but very slow when it comes to being grateful.
Wherever you get in life , don’t forget that someone was a ladder for you .
Let us learn to show gratitude.
