How to overcome “a hellish week vacation”

It is very common to find people who had a great day in their church service on Sundays but who ended up having what I liken to a “hellish week vacation”. That is, they had their week full of contentions from the pit of hell. The enemy bombarded them with all manners of trouble. The great Sunday service blessings were never sustained nor profitable during the week. The scripture says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Heb.4:12-16. (KJV).

The devil is historically and presently noted for wrestling the promises of God from people, and distorting the word of God so that those who initially received it with joy get confused and lose out altogether (see Genesis 3).

The devil lets loose the demons to heap up troubles to ruin people’s day.

– You win by holding on to the faithfulness of God and the integrity of the word of God. God is more committed to helping you than you can ever understand. The just live by faith, according to the word of God.

– Pray on and never give up. The word says, “pray without ceasing”

– Keep up praise and thanksgiving. It wins battles always.

– Call out to someone to pray along with you. It is never a weakness.

– Plead the blood of Jesus. It is a winner any day.

– Be strong and bold. These challenges are not new and God has overcome them every time in people’s lives. 

– Hold on to your confession of the victory won by the Lord. Your word is very important for now and your future. Avoid foolish talk by all means.

Now is the right time to start on this; it may be tough at the beginning but you will soon see significant victory breaking forth on you and your situation.

I am here as a friend.

God bless you.

What is in your heart – You will become just that!

You are limited by the thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth. Be careful!

It may happen now or later but it certainly happens that what you allow to dominate your thoughts and talk about especially concerning your life and your situations are just going to become your reality. The scripture says in Mathew 9:920-22,

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
This woman concluded in her heart what she wanted out of her encounter with Jesus and she got it. 

It is important that you monitor your thoughts and your words. Don’t say things you have not thought through. Watch what people say about you and reject every evil word spoken to you or about you.

The word of God says: 

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:18 (KJV)

Jesus is our righteousness and evil words of people against us will amount to nothing and will be frustrated. This is our heritage.

God bless you.

Life Changing Prayer

It is time to really change important destiny-issues in life and your right to do so is sanctioned by God.

There are some examples that forms the bases of this action and I want us to consider them.

1 Chron.4:9 – 10, “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez [Painful], because she said that his birth was painful. Jabez prayed to the God of Israel, “Please bless me and give me more territory. May your power be with me and free me from evil so that I will not be in pain.” God gave him what he prayed for” (GW)

Jabez made up his mind that enough was enough of the troubles brought upon him by his name. Frustration made the mother call him a bad name. Responsibility made him seek for a change and God honoured his desire for a change.

Would God honour your desire and prayer for change?

Matt. 7:7 – 11, says he will.

The scriptures says, “Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you.  Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find, and for the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “If your child asks you for bread, would any of you give him a stone? Or if your child asks for a fish, would you give him a snake? Even though you’re evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. So how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him?” Matt. 7:7-11, (GW)

In 1 Sam. 1:9-18, Hannah made up her mind that she had had enough of being a bed-fellow with bareness. She decided that there must be an end to her shame. She must have thought, let me give it another push and see what God will do. God changed her situation. The scriptures says,

“One day, after Hannah had something to eat and drink in Shiloh, she got up. (The priest Eli was sitting on a chair by the door of the Lord’s temple.) Though she was resentful, she prayed to the Lord while she cried. She made this vow, “Lord of Armies, if you will look at my misery, remember me, and give me a boy, then I will give him to you for as long as he lives. A razor will never be used on his head.” While Hannah was praying a long time in front of the Lord, Eli was watching her mouth. She was praying silently. Her voice couldn’t be heard; only her lips were moving. Eli thought she was drunk.

“How long are you going to stay drunk?” Eli asked her. “Get rid of your wine.”

Hannah responded, “No sir. I’m not drunk. I’m depressed. I’m pouring out my heart to the Lord. Don’t take me to be a good-for-nothing woman. I was praying like this because I’ve been troubled and tormented.”

Eli replied, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant your request.”

“May you continue to be kind to me,” she said. Then the woman went her way and ate. She was no longer sad.  Early in the morning Elkanah and his family got up and worshiped in front of the Lord. Then they returned home to Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the Lord remembered her. Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel [God Hears], because she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” 1 Sam.1:9-18. (GW)

Will God change yours? Don’t assume he would not. Give it another push.

James 5:13- 18 says he will. The scriptures says,

“If any of you are having trouble, pray. If you are happy, sing psalms. If you are sick, call for the church leaders. Have them pray for you and anoint you with olive oil in the name of the Lord. (Prayers offered in faith will save those who are sick, and the Lord will cure them.) If you have sinned, you will be forgiven. So admit your sins to each other, and pray for each other so that you will be healed. Prayers offered by those who have God’s approval are effective. Elijah was human like us. Yet, when he prayed that it wouldn’t rain, no rain fell on the ground for three-and-a-half years. Then he prayed again. It rained, and the ground produced crops.” James 5:13-18. (GW)

Why not give it a go and pray again!

Rebecca was not content with the struggles she was going through during her pregnancy. She went to God in prayer to find out what was happing.

God heard her and told he what was happening.

What are you going through? Are you confused and frustrated about the situations around and would want to know what the years ahead has for you? Go to God with it.

Matt. 7. 8, says those who search shall find.

If you believe you will see the glory of God. John11: 40. “Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you would see God’s glory?” (GW).
