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.

I will praise the LORD, as long as I live;

Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.

When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that day his plans perish.

Surely, you can!

Surely, you can!

Blessed is he whose help is the Lord God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made the heaven and the earth,

I Believe in Miracles – You Can Have Your Breakthrough Today

The subject, Miracle, makes many people uncomfortable. To many people it sounds like a joke or words of an unserious person. However for a Christian, what is the relationship between him/her and God if there are no miracles? The simplest definition of a miracle is help from God. MP900390489

The moment a Christian stops believing in help from God, his relationship with God becomes dry and hopeless. The scripture says in Psalm 123:1-4 “Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until He has mercy on us. Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us! For we are exceedingly filled with contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorn of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.” (NKJV)

Praying to God is like the servant in this Bible passage who is looking up to the master/mistress to provide what is needed to do the business of the day. Exceeding contempt and shame are the consequences of unanswered prayer. Why would God ask us to pray, if he is not going to help?

There are people who will argue that help from God depends on our goodness; that is not the absolute truth. Rom. 5:8-9 says “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” Rom. 8:31-34 (NKJV)

For as long as one seeks to justify himself before God, he will struggle; (I believe Christians should live their lives pleasing God), but it must be understood that we are saved by grace and live out our lives through grace. In many places the common practices are, “pleasing God so that he will be appeased to bless you.” God chose to bless us in Christ Jesus and we can access help from God through prays. This help is what is called miracle.

You may not see miracles in your life if you don’t believe in miracles. You rarely notice what you are not looking for. I have conducted many services where there were miracles and testimonies of divine intervention in people’s lives, (In Africa and Europe). They include areas like relationships, fruit of the womb, business, healing, material things etc. I have seen people who stepped into the church for the first time and left with miracles; I have heard members of the church testify (showing evidences) of how God helped them (miracle); there were cases of long time issues overturned through prayers. I have seen revivals in fellowship groups because people prayed.

The Christian journey could be burdensome without answer to prayers (miracle); in fact, if the person backslides, it is very difficult to restore such a person. Miracles end arguments about the existences of God. Here is an evidence of it:

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.” Acts 4:13-16 (NKJV)

Whose report would you believe, “that of unbelievers” or that of the scriptures? God answers prayers and that is what produces miracles.

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ Jer.33:3.

Call on God today and experience a breakthrough. Do it.
