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…

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…

True Love is Actionable

1 John 3:18 (KJV) My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. I love you, I truly care for you. Words we truly desire to hear and often when spoken to us coveys the deepest emotions that someone has towards you. In as much as love or agape in the context here is more than an emotional disposition toward another person, agape conveys the highest good, intentions, actions, commitment, sacrifice,…

Healthy and godly relationships are of God.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (KJV) 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. It is undeniable that God intended us to live in harmony one with another and for us to forge healthy interpersonal relationships that are kingdom oriented. No one is an island as it is…

The Nature and Character of God

Lamentations 3:22-23 (KJV) 22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. One thing is central to all relationships that are enduring and beneficial to those involved in it. It is the consistency of the relationship. Meaning that in such a relationship those involved can trust one another. They can bank on the words and promises made because over time each party has demonstrated a true…

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…

Love ALWAYS defeat Fear

1 John 4:18 (KJV) There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. There are many reasons why people fear or feel afraid. Fear has a dual effect on each individual, it can bring about change, or it can become bondage unto which people are unable to release themselves from it. It is a natural response to circumstances that are overwhelming and uncertain; however,…

God is the Master Builder

Psalm 127:1 (KJV) Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Stability is something that everyone desires and often work very hard to achieve.  It is in some ways one of the assuring accomplishments that people rest their souls on. We hear it being said,  I need to find a way to stabilize my life or you need to be stable.  Implying that it is a mark…

Real Peace is GOD’S Peace!

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV) Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. This is one of my favorite scripture passage. It speaks of God’s goodness and grace towards His children and presents such a wonderful promise that we all desires which is PEACE OF MIND.  And throughout the world today people are seeking for peace of mind.  Some through unconventional ways and means. Others through some sort of spiritual experience and…

You Are God’s Responsibility

John 10:29 (KJV) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. Often in life we are faced with life challenges and many at times,  we fear the obvious but as human as it is to know that there are things naturally that may or could happen. Our Faith is anchored on Him who is greater than all our fears.  We must understand the basis of…

We Are Heirs of God In Christ

Galatians 4:7 (KJV) Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Inheritance is tied to Sonship, Relationship, Position, and Affiliation. However, of all these factors that grantees inheritance none is more powerful than being an “Heir”. Notice that for us, there has been a change of Status. We are no longer servants. In this context, a servant is one who does not have rights or privileges. He…

Victory In Your WORDS!

Proverbs 15:1 (NIV) A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. One of the keys to victory in life is the choice of words. It is so critical that Jesus established in Matthew 12 vs. 36 – 37. That it is the basis of justification or condemnation.  How we speak and what we speak is important in the health of our relationship.  It defines us, oh he is always angry and speaks so angrily people…
