Outstanding lessons From Mud

Outstanding Lessons From Mud

Jeremiah 18:1-6

One way or the other, all human beings have a relationship with the dust. One of the most powerful weapons, used by spiritual wickedness against us is the dust or the sand. What an outstanding lessons from mud this is to the wise, that any person who allows God to work on him or her; will become a vessel unto honor in God’s hands.

Sometimes you will hear a person described, as a self made man. I know what they are talking about, when they describe someone that way, they mean that they didn’t begin life with a fortune; that they worked their way up the ladder to where they are today. But in reality, the expression is a poor one. There is really no such thing, as a self made man. Scripture tells us that God gave every one of us, every ability that we have. Thus you owe everything you have, and everything you are, to Him. So you should be reminded of that every time, you read the creation story of Genesis. Now it is amazing that something as precious as humanity, could come out from the dust of the earth. However, this could only happen because God worked on it. But unfortunately, observing the history of mankind has taught us that, the mud of the earth often seems to be wiser; than majority of the people who ever lived. Why, when the Almighty God wanted to make something precious from the dust, it did not protest against God’s work. In contrast to this, what do you see in mankind, you see stiff resistance whenever God wants to glorify Himself through them. For this reason, many people do not fulfill their destinies on earth. According to our anchor scripture, the Lord took Jeremiah to a potter’s house; where the potter was working on a lump of clay.

In the process, the clay was marred in the potter’s hands, and he made it into another vessel that he liked, according to his pleasure. So, not once did the clay protest the potter’s intentions. He can do what He chooses. We humans do have limited free will, but God’s will is greater. So even if we try to resist His sculpting hand, He continues to work toward His purpose. Therefore an outstanding lessons from the mud today, is that the Lord is able to work on your marred life, business, family, job or studies and cause great restoration to take place in them.

You Must Avoid Unfriendly Friends

You Must Avoid Unfriendly Friends

Proverbs 27:6

Friendship can be said to be a relationship between two people that, really care about each other. A very good friend is the first person you call when there is good news, and also the first person to alert when there is danger; this is why you must avoid unfriendly friends.

For instance David had two conspicuous friends, one at the beginning of his fame whose name was Jonathan, a warrior, the son and heir apparent to the first king of Israel. The Bible makes us to understand that, the soul of Jonathan was knitted to the soul of David. Hence, he tried as much as possible to protect David and was not envious. Unfortunately, Jonathan died. Your heaven sent friend will not die suddenly, in Jesus name. So in today’s world of social media, the real meaning of friendship is fast fading away. It is becoming more frightening, to claim to have friends these days because there are so many deceitful friends out there. The magnitude of this problem increases, when people have something to gain from their association with you one. Are you one of such unfriendly friends. Is your friendship with people, built around the furtherance of your interests. Before you begin to identify those who claim to be your friend but are not really so, ask yourself if you are truly friendly. Our anchor scripture, perfectly describe the typical character of an unfriendly friend. More often than not, they are very close to their victims. This makes one wonder if they deliberately got close to their victim, in order to wreak their havoc. If that is the case, should we not avoid having close friends or any friend at all. I don’t think so; we only need to be prudent in our choice of close friends.

Because David also had another friend who was a counsellor. He spoke like an oracle, his counsel seemingly stood valid like those from the mind of God and his name was Ahithophel. David believed Ahithophel, to be faithful and upright. So we need to have friends, but the challenge is how to identify good ones. There is one antidote against choosing enemies as friends, which is prayer. Only God knows the hearts of men, and only He can shield us from treacherous friends. The Lord said you should, do unto others as you would have them do unto you; therefore you must avoid unfriendly friends today.

Understanding The Dangers Of Ignorance

Understanding The Dangers Of Ignorance

Hosea 4:6

A man’s area of ignorance, is his area of darkness. To live in ignorance is to live in darkness. Hence, you have to study God’s Word for yourself, for only God’s Word dispels ignorance. So understanding the dangers of ignorance, is a guarantee to a life that is free from all oppressions.

Therefore, ignorance means a lack of knowledge. It is a state of being uninformed, and this is a very dangerous thing. People sometimes say that ignorance is bliss, but this is very wrong. Knowledge is power, while ignorance on the other hand is death. It is what you don’t know, that can kill you. A person, who doesn’t know how dangerous a snake is, can decide to stroke its beautiful body to his or her own peril. A worker who fails to learn about the requirements, peculiar to his or her job will in no time lose that job.    Those who don’t learn about what to eat; and what not to eat will one day poison themselves. Ignorance is indeed very dangerous. As a business person, never invest your money in what you know nothing about. Don’t be in a haste, to invest in anything or anyone. Rather, take your time to carry out due diligence, so as to avoid losing the resources God had deposited in your care. Because, he who knows not and knows not that he does not know; is a compound fool. However, he who know not and seeks to know is a wise man. Another pitiable situation, is for one who does not know and yet claims to know. He or she will die in ignorance.

Now  It doesn’t matter if the darkness is in your studies, health, or family; if you would let the light of God’s Word dominate your spirit, it will illuminate your path; and give you direction in the way of success and victory. To be ignorant about God; and spiritual life is also very dangerous. The worst end result of other forms of ignorance, is physical death. Laziness, is one of the major reasons why people are ignorant. Some people are just too lazy, to explore the word of God in order to know God by themselves. So there is no knowledge, as impactful as that which you research by yourself. Therefore understanding the dangers of ignorance; attracts open doors.

Understanding The Power Of Purity

Understanding The Power Of Purity

Psalm 45:7

Christianity is not a religion; but a call to manifestation. The whole world, is waiting for your manifestation; and not your explanation. The only way to prove to the world that Jesus is alive; is by the signs and wonders we command. Now understanding the power of purity, is the foundational stone for life in the miraculous.

Because purity is the gateway, to life in the miraculous. It will guarantee unending manifestations, in your life and cause the power of God to flow unhindered through you. Although signs and wonders are the heritage of all saints, the power to bring it about only flows through sanctified vessels. We see a clear picture, of this in the time of Elisha. Gehazi his servant was destined to obtain a double portion of his anointing, but he lost it to sin. When Gehazi was given the rod of his master, to go and raise the Shunammite woman’s dead son in 2 Kings 4, the rod would not produce. The reason was not very clear then. But it became glaring later, when he pursued after Naaman for a talent of silver and two changes of garments. It was then that the corruption, in the heart of Gehazi was revealed. There will be no manifestation of signs and wonders; until corruption in all its ramifications is dealt with. If the rod could not produce in Gehazi’s hands, then it will not produce in the corrupt hands of any believer either. And as I say often, until sin goes, signs will not flow. Sin, whether in the heart or in deed, is a major hindrance to the flow of signs and wonders. So as a child of God, working in signs and wonders is your birthright. To be born again, is to be born into signs and wonders. However, sanctification is what gives you the platform and foundation; for a life of signs and wonders.

Before Jesus could operate in signs and wonders, He had platforms of holiness, purity and sanctification. So to operate in signs and wonders, you must live a holy life. Until you are purified, you cannot see wonders. Purification is essential, for every child of God because it guarantees divine intervention. The place of purity in manifestations of signs and wonders cannot be overemphasized, because it controls the release of the power; you require to do signs. Therefore understanding the power of purity, is what makes you a candidate for God’s power.

You Must Keep Your Children Alive

You Must Keep Your Children Alive

Exodus 20:12

Every human person, belongs to a biological family. As an individual, you have a responsibility towards your own family, and you must understand that no matter the kind of family you hail from, that you must keep your children alive.

Now it is very unfortunate, that many parents are the architects of the untimely demise of their children; not because they are witches or sorcerers, but because they are ignorant of God’s word that keeps people, especially innocent children, alive. The word of God from our anchor scripture, is food for thought in this regard. At the initial stage of a child’s life, he or she is ignorant of this scripture; it is therefore the duty of parents, to teach them the way of the Lord established in the word of God. It however becomes a compound problem when parents themselves, don’t know the way of the Lord. Parents should serve as the voice of God; in their children’s lives. It is saddening to observe that instead of parents teaching their children to trust in the Lord their Maker, they rather teach them to trust in the knowledge derived from the education, they spend fortune to acquire. Some parents, even see their children as being wiser than them, simply because these children can relate better with modern gadgets and appliances. Although these appliances can be deployed to serve beneficial purposes, they often mislead and introduce children to emotional, psychological and even spiritual trauma when the use of such devices by these children; is not monitored and controlled. Because God has given those children to you to raise in His fear, so that they will become an ensign; to the world around them. No one can help raise these children, in a better way than you (the parents).

For instance, some people read about Eli and his children but don’t seem to learn from it. Many parents are carefree when it comes to discipline, allowing their children to walk directly onto the path of destruction. In 1 Samuel 3:12-14; The Lord was so grieved by the act of Eli’s children, that He declared this frightening judgement on Eli’s household. May your household, never come under God’s judgement. Beloved, it is better not to bring children into this world than to bring them up without the fear of God. My prayer for you today, is that your children will not fall prey to the devil’s destructive works in Jesus name; this is why you must keep your children alive.

What A Great Father God Is To You

What A Great Father God Is To You

Psalm 68:4-10

The God that we serve, is a Father who is always present and is ever ready to help. Now we discover from scriptures that, everything that works in the Kingdom works by love. This is why i want you to understand, what a great father God is to you.

Because it is by faith we live the overcomer’s life, but faith works by love. So He is full of love, compassion and mercy for all of His children, and He gives each one of them uninterrupted attention. As the Almighty Father, He is capable of giving you everything; that you can ever need. He knows His children; even more than they even know themselves. He knows your tomorrow and every single detail about you even before you were born. This is why your love for souls, and the pursuit of same for their salvation; is the strongest proof of your love for God. Therefore, that God loves you means you are special and valuable to Him. This understanding will change your life; and give you an extraordinary mentality. For instance consider a man like David, who had a unique perception of the love of God; his understanding of the Father’s love made him think differently. This alone lets you know what David thought about God, for which reason he was such a success, and his life, so victorious. He knew he was valuable to God, and the object of His favour. Always take out time, to meditate on the love of God. Think about His grace, kindness and the fact that if you were the only one on earth, the Lord Jesus would still have given His life for you. That’s how valuable, you are to God.

Dare to believe this and let it sink deep into your consciousness; it will change your life forever; and give you a new confidence. Because no matter how great and good an earthly father is, he will still fall short and fail in some aspects of his children’s wellbeing. An earthly father, cannot boast of being with his children always. An earthly father cannot boast of knowing his children so well; that he knows how to comfort them at all times. Even when he says he is capable of giving his children everything they ask for, he cannot give them good health, retentive memory, safe journey, and other things that money can’t buy. Therefore your heavenly Father is the perfect Father to the fatherless, oh what a great father God is to you.

Unveiling How To Access Good Life

Unveiling How To Access Good Life

1 Peter 3:10-18

Every, of God’s plan is a covenant. He unveils His plan, and at the same time unveils your own part of the plan to commit Him. So this is why unveiling how to access good life, is very important in your  pursuit of God.

Now having access to good life, is not as difficult as some people make it seem. As a matter of fact, living a good life was factored into the creation of man. God first created everything that man would need for a good life; before He made man in His own image and set him over all of His other creations. The calamity of a life of struggle only came, after Eve was deceived into believing the devil’s lies; and Adam outrightly disobeyed God. God consequently, withdrew aspects of His good life from them. However, the good life from God was reinstated through the second Adam, Jesus Christ. Therefore our anchor scripture, introduces us to how we can access the good life, that Jesus Christ came to restore us. Now it would be wise of you to pay attention, to the three major things mentioned in this scripture, as vital to experiencing the good life. First is your speech. No wonder the Bible says, death and life are in the power of the tongue. So your future is clearly, painted from the pages of scriptures. Because, every child of God is redeemed a spiritual lion. A lion is a symbol of dominion. So, every child of God is redeemed a spiritual lion, for dominion in the race of life. Everything that has been dominating you in form of sickness and disease, failure and stagnation, by the encounter of today, you will begin to dominate them sweatlesly.

A lion naturally connotes, dominion in the kingdom of beast. Dominion is the capacity to dominate your situation and circumstances, shouting down strangers in your environment, having it the way you want it inspite of your enemies. It is natural for a lion to roar, the roar of a lion send fear down the animal’s kingdom. The territory of lion is called lion’s den, no rude animal plays around it. From today, evil will recognise your territory. So the content and manner of your speech, have a great impact on your relationship with God and man. Use the power that your tongue, possesses to speak life to yourself, and everything that concerns you every day. Therefore, unveiling how to access good life helps you to be outstanding in the journey of life.

The Lord Of Host Is Your Defender

The Lord Of Host Is Your Defender

Psalm 3:3

It has been confirmed from the scriptures, that the lord of host is your defender, therefore He is worthy to be praised at every moment of your life. For He is your strength, your rock, your fortress, your shield and high tower.

Now the Bible tells us in proverbs 18:10; that the name of the Lord is a strong tower, that the righteous can always run to at any time and remain secure. The Almighty God, is the security upon which one should base his life. These days when there is no nation that does not have its own share of the global security crises, it is certain that unless the Lord watches over you, you become vulnerable to the evil events flying around. God is the only guarantee and assurance of your faith; hence, you can be confident that you will always be delivered even in extreme circumstances. Sometimes, God will allow you to fall into a great calamity before He comes visiting. He does this, just to reassure you that nothing is over until He says so. He want you to have an evidence; of His deliverance in your life for future purposes.  Furthermore, He is your defence and shield. This is something you have to be conscious of and grateful to the Lord for, because it means that not only is He your defender, He is also your strength. So you should have no fear at all, not of anyone or anything. Now who do you cry to when faced with challenges in life, your biological father, mother, friend or worst of all, a witchdoctor.

I want to tell you a story, of a man who went to consult a witchdoctor for help. The witchdoctor promised to help this man, and told him to return in seven days, for a charm that would subdue his enemies. When he arrived on the seventh day, he met a lot of people in mourning, and he thought that one of the witchdoctors in patients must have died. To his shock however, when he asked to see the witchdoctor, he was told that the one who promised him victory over his enemies had just given up the ghost. So, deliverance is of the Lord. It is only the Almighty God, that can deliver. There is no pastor or prophet anywhere, who can deliver. It does not matter how defenceless you are, the Lord of host is your defender.

Understanding The Wonders In God’s Word

Understanding The Wonders In God's Word

Isaiah 55:10-11

God’s word is the supernatural activator, of the power behind anointing; so understanding the wonders in God’s word is what makes you outstanding in life.

Now, the word of God is self anointed. Dwelling, on God’s word averts evil. Because, anything your mind focuses on will happen. There is a way you will listen to news; and if you are not mature enough, you will focus on the bad side of the news. When something wants to battle with your mind, stay on the word of God. Because the word of God, brings orderliness in the mist of confusion. So fill your thoughts, with heavenly realities. The realities of the heavenly realm, are realized via the word of God. Never allow the distractions of the world rule your mind, but the word of God. When you focus on the word of God, it builds your faith. Because God’s Word is full of power, and that power is real and available to you. However, the way to make contact with that power, and use it to your
benefit is walking in the Word. Therefore the word has to be spoken, before it becomes effective. The moment, it is spoken it can no longer be erased or recalled; until it has accomplished the purpose for which It is sent. So, understand that God’s word is loaded with Wonders. That’s why other books have information, but the Bible is loaded with Wonders. It is the instructions that Moses was receiving from God, that brought the wonders they experienced. But the missing link for many, is how to make that which God, has given to them; that which He has already done not only available, but a vital experience in their personal lives.

How can you make contact, with the power He has made available to you. How do you make; His Word effective in the now of your life. The answer is simple; walk in the Word. Accept and trust the Word of God in its simplicity. Know that the word has wonders, and that is why Satan want to denial you access to the word. Now when you hear or study the Word as it pertains to the new creation in Christ, personalize it, because that’s God talking to you. Seize what He has  made available; take a hold of it, and make it personal to you; because understanding the wonders in God’s word is of a great value today.

The Almighty Sets The Captive Free

The Almighty Sets The Captive Free

John 8:36

Until you are able to locate the Word, you won’t locate an escape route. Your depth in knowledge will determine the height you enjoy as far as liberty is concerned; for this reason the almighty sets the captive free.

Now the reason, why many people are so helpless in life today; is because they are in captivity. Friends, you can use God’s Word to sort out anything. Not just the one you have heard, but the one that has been revealed to you. Because many are in the bondage of sin, sickness, poverty, addition, demonic possession and other evil conditions. The resultant effects of captivity include loss of freedom, psychological imbalance, and emotional trauma, loss of contact with loved ones, hopelessness and dejection. So a captive, is a person with a lost identity. Such a person may have been royalty before being captured by the enemy, but he or she has become a slave and must now live at the mercy of his or her new owner. So this is the reason, why some children of God miss their day of visitation, because they don’t take prophetic utterances from God seriously; whether written or spoken. So, when i talk about the truth, i am not talking about intellectualism, nor am i talking about philosophy. I am talking about the revealed Word of God. For this reason, I encourage you to see the words from our anchor scripture today as prophetic, coming to you from your Maker who can never lie. By the word of the Lord, I proclaim to you that this is the day of your freedom. So i want you to understand that, the Lord as the Almighty specifically declares His ability to set the captives free, including lawful captives.

Beloved, the meaning of this, is that those who willingly got themselves into bondage and are tired of staying there are candidates for God’s deliverance. Some people think that once someone willingly enters into witchcraft, the occult, secret societies, and the like, he or she can never be free again, but going by what the Lord declares in Isaiah 49:24, this is not true. So, If you willingly submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ over your life, He will not only set you free, He will also ensure that your freedom is permanent by destroying all your oppressors; because the almighty sets the captive free.
