Commit your ways to the Lord

‘ Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall make straight your paths.’ (Prov. 3:5-6)ESV

Also, the word of God says, ‘Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.’ (Psalm 37:3-5) ESV.

In Rom.8:31-32, The scripture says, ‘What shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?’

God has stepped out to help you from today onward, step out in faith, in prayers and with courage to act on the promises; trusting the Lord all the way.

If you encounter difficulties along the way, check it out with him and ask for help. If you miss it, repent and turn to him for help. (See Job 36:8-11) ESV) Find this scripture and read it, you will see the goodness of God to those who keep close to him always.

God bless you.

 

Family Blessing

“Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways, you shall eat the fruit of the labour of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you. your wife will be like fruitful vine within your house; your children will like olive shoots around your table” (Psalm 128:1-3)ESV

There is double blessing for those who serve the Lord; Their blessings extend to members of their family. The word of God says it shall be well with you; also your wife and children benefit from God’s blessings resulting from your reverence to the LORD. Imagine what will happen if you encourage your family and motivate them to serve the Lord also. It will result in bandwagon of blessings.

In Psalm 127:3, the Scripture says, ‘Behold children are the heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb a reward’ ‘Blessed is everyone who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with the enemies in the gate’ (Psalm 128:5)ESV.

Do you see your children as a burden or as a blessing?

It is important that you give your children both spiritual and physical support. You should provide inspiration for them and teach them to look up to God for direction and help. Don’t leave them to learn the basic things of life from other people who you don’t know. There are many of such all over the community.

You must never harass your children; they may become strangers to you and even run away from you and your house. You may lose them to drugs, alcohol and immorality. This is because they will seek comfort from those things.

It is important to know that children, no matter their gender, are blessings from the Lord. If you reverence the Lord, you must appreciate his gifts. You must not be involved in domestic violence. There are legal consequences and it is socially unacceptable. Don’t hit your spouse for any reason and avoid bullying them.

It is important to give attention to learning how to take care of your home. Ignorance is deadly; avoid it.

Jesus is Lord

God and your turning point

Your wellbeing is important to God. He creates opportunities that can change your life situations. It is important that you connect with such landmarks, as they come in different forms. God does not despise anyone, he want you to succeed in life. You can read about this in the following scriptures – Job 36:5 – 13.

“Behold, God is mighty, but despises no one; He is mighty in strength of understanding.
He does not preserve the life of the wicked, but gives justice to the oppressed.
He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; for He has seated them forever,
and they are exalted. And if they are bound in fetters, held in the cords of affliction,Graceful Voice Prog - July 2017
then He tells them their work and their transgressions—
that they have acted defiantly.
He also opens their ear to instruction, and commands that they turn from iniquity.
If they obey and serve Him,
they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.  But if they do not obey, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.  “But the hypocrites in heart store up wrath; they do not cry for help when He binds them”

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.

Hearing from God – Do You Know the Witch of Endor Also?

“The Philistines assembled and camped in Shunem. Saul also assembled the whole Israelite army, and they camped at Gilboa. When Saul looked at the Philistine army, he was very afraid—terrified. He prayed to the Lord, but the Lord didn’t answer him through dreams, the Urim, or prophets. Saul told his officers, “Find me a woman who conjures up the dead. Then I’ll go to her and ask for her services.”

His officers told him, “There is a woman at Endor who conjures up the dead.”

After disguising himself by putting on other clothes, Saul left with two men and came to the woman that night. He said to her, “Please consult with a dead person for me. Conjure up the person I request.”

The woman told him, “You know that Saul rid the land of mediums and psychics. Why are you trying to trap me and have me killed?”” 1 Samuel 28:4-9 (GW)

You might not know how much people know until you ask for “help anyhow”! Saul was in “big trouble” and “he needed help anyhow”. He wanted to know the outcome of the battle he was going into. He wanted to know the future; he wanted to hear from God. God did not answer him and in his desperation, he asked his followers if the knew someone who can conjure up the dead.

The scripture says, “Saul inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him, either through dreams or Urim or through prophets. Saul told his servants, “Find me a woman who is a medium so I can go to her and make my inquiry through her.” His servants told him, “Look, there’s a woman at Endor who is a medium.” (NIV)

His servant knew one at Endor. “His officers know a woman at Endor” (GW).

Do you know the witch at Endor also? Do you know the hidden places where people go to seek the future?

Many people don’t care how they arrive at a solution and from whom it comes from. They will tell you, “The end justifies the means”. They believe in “solve the problem and colour the testimony”. God is not enough, as far as they are concerned.

Is God enough for you?

You may be surprised how many people in “church” who know “places”, like the servants (officers) of Saul knew. Some year ago I engage someone in a discussion while on evangelism and I could not believe the things I heard. He told me awful things some people engaged in to grow a church. The discussion was as a result of an incident that happened when I pastored a church then. We engaged a local builder to build a shade for us and he was to raise a section as an altar. When I went to the church in the evening to see how much work he had done, I found him waiting for me to know what he should put in the altar place; why? I asked him. He told me some “stories”. I told him to complete the job, I don’t have anything to put there. There should not be anything there. Since that time, I had been told several stories. Horrible tales!

Do you know the man or woman of Endor? Saul did not get away with it, and God is not partial. It is a shame to deceive other people but it is repulsive to deceive one’s self.

God is enough for those who trust him. It doesn’t matter what is achieved, serving God with the powers of darkness does not suffice.
