Daily Digest : Nobody Like You


We’ve already made it to the tenth day in the first month of the year 2017. Some may have regrettably fallen back on their new year resolutions and feel like giving up but I am here to remind you of something special.

It is not too late to try again. However, this time, ask the Holy Spirit to assist you and you can be assured that he WILL. For there is NOBODY like the Lord. Pick yourself up in him and try again.

All my bones shall say, “ Lord , who is like You, Delivering the poor from him who is too strong for him, Yes, the poor and the needy from him who plunders him?” – Psalms 35:10 NKJV

Prayer:   Father I thank you for this day that you have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I pray for your guidance in performing all my daily duties. Help me to become the person I desire to be and more so who you intend for me to be, in Jesus’s name I pray.

Daily Digest: Not Like You


This world is filled with millions of individuals who can praise God, yet not one can do it like me neither can I do it like them. It’s amazing just to think that God hears our individual praise. The freqency of my voice is quite different to that of another. I guess the Psalmist David knew that, is why he said:

“What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? – Psalms 30:9 KJV”

Isn’t it amazing. There would have been others to praise God but not like David. My testimony might be similiar to yours but the time of testing quite different, which in itself brings a unique praise. I admonish you this morning, let no one or nothing stop your praise. The word of God says, He inhabits the praises of his people. God knows and love the frequency of your voice, so praise on. If you feel too overwhelmed to give a praise, know that weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. Faith it till you make it.

We Stop The Flow


THIS IS A WARNING!

Many of us are praying for something, some of which are MIRACLES (emphasis added). Please note that our prayers will NOT be answered and the blessings will NOT FLOW, if we are carrying unforgiveness in our hearts. These are not my words but the word of the Lord. 

If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear. –Psalms 66:18 

So please, let it go. Rid yourself of unforgiveness, bitterness, resentment and the likes, for its only then God will answer your prayer. His word cannt lie, so maybe your results is taking long because you are harbouring unforgiveness. Repent and ask again. Watch God bring it to pass

Daily Digest: The Life


An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth. This is the theory many of us live by. We keep thoughts of wicked done to us and plan our revenge with intent of more severe damage than we may have gone through. 

We often forget that vengeance belongs to God. When evil is repaid,  we become just as the persons who would have done it. Sometimes maybe worst. This often happens because we think of ourselves more highly than others. We are to (even in turmoil), love our neighbours as we love ourselves. Not love yourself and “care” a little or not at all about others.

God is looking and waiting to create a people of a renewed mind. A mind and heart that is just like him. Overlooking faults and seeing needs. If God is suppose to treat us the way we treat people, our lives would be miserable. 

Therefore, let us learn to forgive and share the heart of Christ with all men (human beings), for this is one of the wills of God concerning us. 

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:21 NKJV

Prayer: Father I thank you for ministering to my heart by your Holy Spirit. Forgive me for harbouring hurt and unkind acts done to me. I forgive all persons associated with these thoughts and remove resentment from my life. Thank you for washing me in your blood, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Daily Digest: What Will Be Found


When Christ searches the church assembly what will he find? If he searches YOUR HEART, what will he find? 

Will he be pleased? Will he be grieved? Will you hear well done my child, keep abiding or will he say, turn from your wicked ways lest I cast you away? 

Though we stumble and fall at times, the word of God says we have an advocate who makes intercessions on our behalf. Therefore, we are always equipped with the chance to make things right. Yet, we make excuses and wallow in the sin, guilt, shame and condemnation of our mistakes (which was already nailed to the cross with Christ) allowing us to stray from God even further. A plan that the enemy enjoys and accelerates. 

Understand that you were bought with a price (the blood of Jesus) and nothing can separate you from the love of God. Therefore take time to make it right with him. He is waiting for you with open arms. His word says: 

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17 KJV

What shall be our end if what he finds is not pleasing? Lets make a firm decision to make it right TODAY. Tomorrow might be too late. 

Prayer: Father I thank you for your word. I pray by your Holy Spirit you search my heart today. Remove all the things that’s against your word and fill me with the attributes of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Give Over Yourself Entirely


Most of us in this life wants to be successful but only the ones who give themselves to their dreams/goals are successful. For example, as a singer, how can you excel if you do not continuously do vocal training and voice care practices? You may be able to sing yes and forever will be but unless you dedicate time and effort into learning your voice and perfecting the skills in using it, you will not excel. I am quite sure every recording artiste will agree.

The same goes for every other facet of life. Whether it is academics or not. To succeed, one must give over themselves to the cause. Never think that the person you hold in high esteem, got to what you now admire by playing games or mere luck. It took hard work, dedication, disappointments, set backs and most importantly the desire to win, to get there. 

We live in a fast pace world now and so, even in perfecting something, we expect that it should be the same. But some things will never change and thats one of them. No matter how fast pace the world gets, dedication will always be required to build an empire. A body builder cannot start training today and enter the competition the next day. They will be mocked because what will be presented, would not have been suitable and worthy of such a competition. The same goes for you and I. 

Therefore, I take this time to enlighten or remind you, as I would have already reminded myself, that it takes time and dedication to win and this can only be achieved when we give over ourselves to the craft.

Biblical view: Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.

I Timothy 4:14‭-‬15 NKJV

I Wonder.


The bible says the heart of man is desperately wicked and from the look of things, it seems to be growing worst. As I read the undermentioned verses, my heart broke. I wondered if I was hurting the heart of God all over again. Was he regretting my creation? What is my life saying to God? Am I pleasing in his sight? Does he smile when he looks at me”? And the list of questions lingers on, with it all boiling down to, is God pleased with me.

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually. And the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved at heart. So the Lord said, I will destroy, blot out, and wipe away mankind, whom I have created from the face of the ground–not only man, [but] the beasts and the creeping things and the birds of the air–for it grieves Me and makes Me regretful that I have made them.
Genesis 6:5-7 AMP

Yesterday I had a moment of outburst. A situation got me so angry that I had to express how I was feeling. No, I did not use expletives but now reflecting, if I did, there would not have been much of a difference. That’s how bad the outburst was. Thinking about it, I feel horrible. What was I thinking? Where was my self-control? Am I not a Christian? If not for God, I would have been condemning myself. The outburst was that bad.

However, in my heart of repentance, I saw a greater need for more of God. Without him, it is obvious that I can be just as the ungodly man. You know the ones we like to turn up our noses at? We can all be like them if not for the love of Christ. I know it’s the Holy Spirit that convicted my heart and made me see my wrong. How many of us sees our wrongs though? Are we wrong and strong? Or even right but wrong and strong. Don’t understand? Let me explain.

The situation I over expatiated about, was something that I was in rights for confronting. However, the manner in which I dealt with it, made me wrong and boy in my wrongness was I head-strong. So you see, you can be RIGHT, yet wrong and strong. More than the person/s involved who may be hurt, how does God feel when we react to situations? Is he satisfied or hurt to a point of regret. You may say regret is a bit extreme but with so many ungodly people in this world, it’s possible. Why add to the “pot”? Why can’t we be different and make the heart of God smile.

Yes I know, we are all a work in progress but when you see signs of the flesh, you NEED to get on that altar of sacrifice. For the very same God said, no flesh can glory in his presence. I sure don’t want to make the heart of God sad, mad, angry or even regretful and so should you not.

We may struggle with certain characteristics but we are mandated to be Christ-like. That means our issues must be dealt with , buried and never brought to life again. So ponder on it. Ask yourself the same questions I did and see if you are soothing the heart of God or slowly disintegrating it.
