Contracts and covenants thrives on some set of rules of engagements called terms and conditions. Contracts ceases from being effective when the terms and conditions are violated. Many a times, people agree to terms and conditions they never care to study, only to lose some benefits from its violation. Just like we often agree to a software’s terms and conditions without bothering to go through it and later got discontinued because we violated some portions of it. God’s promises are hinged on terms and conditions. The ignorance of these terms and conditions is the major cause of unanswered prayers and un-granted desires in the body
One of the greatest desires of everyman is the desire for change. Though most people see this urge as something that should be ignored or suppressed, a selected few maximize it to their advantage. Those who ignore their inbuilt desire/urge for change often live irrelevant life while those who fan their urge for change into obsession often become those to be reckoned with in every generation. Your urge for change is normal. It is abnormal for anyone to kill his/her urge/desire for change. It takes change for a child to become an adult; it is change that makes a wealthy man out of a pauper.
One of the major frictions on the wheels of progress is indecision. I have come to discover that indecision is a plaque that can ruin any venture if not dealt with. I have lists of opportunities that have been lost due to indecision. And I believe, it is not peculiar to an individual, but to many of us and which is causing regression in our pursuits. Indecision simply means difficulty in making decision or wavering between two options. The bible says, “a double minded person is unstable in all his ways and cannot receive anything from God (James 1:7-8 paraphrased). Indecision is a product of
Understanding the purpose for which God wants you alive is important in living a fulfilled life here on earth. It’s unfortunate that many people especially Christians live through life ignorant of God’s purpose for keeping them alive. I have come to announce to you that one of the reasons God desires that you live a long and fulfilled life is not to tour the whole world, neither is it for you to have a taste of the best cuisines around the world, but to declare His works. “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord” Psalm 118:17 [kjv]. I like
Eze 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. God is looking for vessels that He can fill and use for His purpose. Many a times, believers out of zeal without knowledge do cry and pray to God to be used by Him. But the truth is, no amount of prayer or fasting can make God to use you, if you are not fit for His use. The truth am letting out to you today is that, you
We are in the last days and the very last of days. Many of the prophecies about the last days have been coming to pass right from the days of the apostles. For instance, the word of God through Prophet Joel (Joel 2:28) that in the last days, God will pour His Spirit upon all flesh came to pass on the day of Pentecost (Act 2:15-17). There are many prophecies about the last days which must come to pass before Christ will return. Mathew 5:18 says “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till
Its easy for a man to love those who love him because human love has the capacity to flow more to those who love him. Human love does not have the capacity to make a man love his enemies. But Jesus said in Mathew 5:46 “For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? Any man can love a man that loves him, even a sinner can do that. However, the love that will take us to heaven will have to go beyond this kind of love. Matt 5:20. Brethren, it is important in this
God is a God of the secret place. God relates with people in solitude. All through the scripture, men accessed the secret things by paying the price of the secret place. Joseph was in the secret place when the Angel told him not to put Mary his wife away (Matt 1:20). We are living in a time when the price of the secret place is higher that it has ever been. Our daily schedules are so choked up that we no longer have 30 mins solitude before God in an entire 24 hours a day. This is indeed a perilous time according to the scripture.
Do you know it’s a high level of insanity that makes people do the same thing repeatedly and expect different result? As long as you keep living consistently in a certain way, you will keep getting the same result. But if you want to see an improvement in your life, you’ve got to start doing things in a different way. Complacency is one deadly virus that is holding many people in stagnation. As long as your life is subject to a routine, you cannot experience any change in the result you’ve been getting. Advancement is a product of force, which is the reason why the
Help from above has no substitute. Ps 108:12 says “Give us help against the adversary, for vain is the help of man”. You cannot find help in this world until you first secure it from above. Understand this that ‘if God is your helper, everything living or non-living has no choice but to favour you’. To seek help from sources other than God is to fail in life. You cannot live your life to the maximum without divine help. There is a help that comes only from above that makes life worth living. Paul succeeded in Ministry because he had the help of God Acts
