Your testimony of victory can lead others to victory

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV) 3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. Life presents in so many ways, and often, we are hard-pressed on every side. We face challenges that are unknown to us and we think…

Father, show me the way you have made for me!

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Our perspective, perception, and mindset are three critical elements of life that impact and determines the outcome of everything we go through in life. Challenges are a fundamental…

Yield totally to God and grow in Grace

Psalm 139:23-24 (KJV) 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. The need for yieldedness and openness to God cannot be overemphasized. It is the pathway to growth. When daily applied, it leads to untold fruitfulness. When the psalmist asked God to search him and know his heart and try his thoughts, he was inviting God to…

As a child of God, what is the drive of your life?

Psalm 42:2 (KJV) My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? Thirst is a natural phenomenon as hunger. However, what you are thirsting for and what we are hungry for reveals the need for our lives. Thirsting for something shows how much you are in need of such a thing and when you are thirsting for God, it as well reveals the inner drive of your life. The psalmist declares that…

Genuine repentance produces godliness and fruitfulness

Joel 2:12 (KJV) Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: You may have heard it before, I have run out of patience. I don’t think I have time for this. I am not sure this relationship, marriage or friendship is repairable. Things have completely broken down; I have moved on. Such expressions underscore the inability of humanity in handling certain life issues for a long…

Fellowship: A key to your fruitfulness

Revelation 3:20 (KJV) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. People seek and speak of their privacy, their rights of choice and decision-making. They seek environments where they are free to choose and are welcomed the way they are. But often we forget that God is the only One who has truly given us…

Life Challenges : 4 Biblical pathways to solutions

Romans 15:4 (KJV)  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. I am having so much difficulty, someone says. My life is full of challenges, another declared. Why me oh God? A very familiar question, we all ask. When will this be over, we often protest. If God is truly there, why all these evil things happening, another question. And the list goes on-and-on of…

Let God’s Truth guide our hearts

Proverbs 21:2 (KJV) Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts. We are creatures of thoughts and words. We are pruned to think often in general before acting and we do so sometimes with even considering the consequences. It is imperative to earnestly consider our thoughts and actions in the light of the Truth that God foremost looks at our hearts. Now the good thing about this is that God, unlike men, looks…

Be Faithful in word and deed!

Luke 16:10 (KJV) He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. Is there anyone who despises faithfulness? Is there anyone who doesn’t care about people being dependable? No, we all desire to relate with people whose words mean something to them. We look for the quality of faithfulness in our employees. We hold on to relationships that have been proven and tested…

Exercise self-control for Fruitfulness

James 1:19 (KJV) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: Life will is beautiful when we follow God’s wisdom for living. God, the author of life has prescribed to us the very best approaches to living a full and meaningful life here on earth. The challenge is that we do not often follow His revealed approach to life nor do we allow the Holy Spirit always to guide us in the…

God’s Peace makes us FRUITFUL

Colossians 3:15 (KJV)  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. There certain things in life we desire most and we do everything possible to achieve such things. One of such is to have peace of mind. All over the world, people are seeking for peace. And indeed, peace of mind is the antidote to many living chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular…

God is the Truth and Assurance of our safety

Psalm 91:1 (KJV) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. If there is anything we all desires and work hard to achieve it is security. If there is anything we all want for our loved ones and pray for daily, it is for their safety. It is one of the most important aspects of life, ensuring that we are safe and secure. We pay lots of money for…
