Through patience and hope, we bear everlasting fruits.

1 Samuel 2:1-2 (KJV) Hannah prayed: “My heart rejoices in the Lord! Oh, how the Lord has blessed me! Now I have an answer for my enemies, as I delight in your deliverance. No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.” God still answers prayers, irrespective of what people may think, throughout history, we see and witness the greatness of His power and authority in redemptive works, and…

In humility, God refreshes & revives me

Isaiah 57:15 (KJV) The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in that high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble.

He is high and holy, the glorious, exalted One. He reigns over all in heaven and on earth. The Lord Almighty needs…

Be fruitful, by being a person of peace

The uncertainties of our times are such that the bravest of all is lost in not knowing what to do and the seemingly intelligent ones are clueless as to what to do. We are facing dangerous situations unlike anything we have seen before, governments are clueless as what the solutions are and the wisdom of the wise are failing them. In these seasons, people are gripped by fear and anxiety. They seek peace and they look for meaning in the…

God is your STRENGTH, Trust Him.

Isaiah 40:28-31 (KJV) Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. [29] He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. [30] Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: [31] But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew…

Trust God to guide and lead you

Isaiah 49:10 (KJV) They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them. The commitment of God in the life of His children is everlasting. His intentions are good and His promises are sure. We serve God in whose Hands are authority and power, there is no searching out of His understanding. And His ways are…

Let our motives and attitudes glorify God

Motives and attitudes are two central elements upon which God judges and rewards all that we do. The truth is that God sees the heart and knows the very unformed thoughts of our heart and when it comes to serving God.  It is the will of God for you and me to approach anything we do for people, executing our career assignments and more from the vintage of “as unto God.” This motive and attitude will ensure that: You do things…

Pursue God passionately

Psalm 27:4 (KJV) One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. In a world where desires run wide and we are daily plugged by the pursuit of our desires, it is imperative to establish what exactly is important in life. For when the dust of life’s…

Jesus – Our TRUE Shepherd

Psalm 23:1 (GNT) The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need. When Isaiah the prophet lamented that “All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God’s paths to follow our own” (Isaiah 53:6), it was not a compliment to be compared to sheep. Sheep have an infuriating tendency to wander and, not infrequently, to end up in deep trouble. People have the same tendency. But not all sheep wander. Some seem to find an antidote to…

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.
