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…

Don’t give up. God is still with you

Galatians 6:9 (KJV)  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. There are many things we are daily confronted with, many of which we lack the resources to effectively handle. They become objects of deep concern for us. Our family dynamics; financials; friendships and relationship concerns; career and professional challenges; spiritual and often personal life challenges that are too personal to even share with anyone else. Life sometimes comes…

God is a Truthful Communicator.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Ignorance gives room for excuses. When people tend not to know, then expectations are minimal because when we don’t know it is presumed that we will not do the right thing. However, when we have come to the knowledge and we continue to act ignorantly,…

Love As Christ Loves

1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. It is not a surprise that God placed the greatest value on Love. Because love is not only the nature of God but it is the very essence of God. He is Love and all He does stems from Love. His actions toward you are based on Love. The sacrifice of Jesus is an act of Love. Paul was addressing a church…

Grace and Wisdom comes from God

James 1:5 (KJV)  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. There are many things that only God can do for you and do through you. In life we are confronted with situations that often are bewildering and difficult at such we need to depend on God who alone is the source of ‘All Grace’. Here the author of the book of…

Have Faith in your Prayer

1 John 5:14 (KJV)  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: No one truly wants to engage in any unproductive and unprofitable venture in life, especially when it relates to time-consuming things. When and if someone decides to engage in such spiritual activities such as prayer, it must then be that which is indeed both necessary and relevant. It is therefore imperative that we underscore…

Commit your plans (works) to the Lord

Proverbs 16:3 (KJV) Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. As you begin the new calendar year, it is imperative that you critically consider how you acted and went about things in the previous year. An introspective approach to life helps to avoid pitfalls. We live in a world that demands our attention and on daily basis, we are confronted with too many things to do and to respond to, so much so that we often…

The power of gratitude

Psalm 98 (KJV) 98 O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. 2 The Lord hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. The psalmist understood the need to be grateful and the power of gratitude in life, especially when it comes to the works of God in the lives of His people. As we start a new calendar…

True Faith in Christ is “Within You (Heart)”

Matthew 5:8 (KJV) Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Jesus Christ came into the world to change lives and one of the ways that He did that was by what He taught. Here Christ challenged the concept of “True Faith” in God as held by the Jewish people during His days on earth. To the Jews, then true faith was more of an external thing. They held onto ceremonies and rituals of the Jewish religion as…

Thanksgiving: The Believer’s Way of Life

Psalm 100:4 (KJV) Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. The approach determines response. It is a spiritual and natural law that the way and manner in which you approach someone determines the response you will receive. God is both our Father and our God; we, therefore, must understand the necessity of approaching Him as such. Reverence, Praise, and Worship are biblical and reveal manners by which we…

What is your ‘CONFESSION’?

1 John 4:15 (KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. The power of confession cannot be underestimated. However, it is essential to establish that confession in itself without faith in the person making such confession will amount to nothing. We heard it been said, “Confession is Possession,” implying that by what we say, we stand to see or receive, as factual as that may sound, it is not…

True Fellowship is “walking in the light”

1 John 1:7 (KJV) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. The power of fellowship is that it brings about change in us. Fellowshipping with God in Spirit and Truth leads us to experience the rubbing of His nature and character in us. We are called not only to be the light but also to walk…
