Your Anger can cost you everything!

#WordsToLiveBy: “Simeon and Levi are brothers; Instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling place. Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; And their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob And scatter them in Israel. Genesis 49:5,7 [NKJV]

….

Your anger can cost you everything, even your blessings. The children of Simeon and Levi (men of war) will confirm this. Simeon and Levi were brothers whose anger (and unrepentance) caused them to lose their identity, their place of identification, their lot, their blessing, their inheritance only to become lost in a crowd of people. Today I was studying the word of God in Deuteronomy 33:1-29. And then I realised that when Moses who had led Israel (for 40yrs) was about to die, and set about blessing the tribes of Israel, the Simeonites (Simeon descendants) did not get a blessing. In fact Simeon didn’t even get a mention. I realised the words uttered by an upset parent over their children will and do stick. It is true that I later found out in Joshua 19:1 that whatever Simeon did get, their dwelling place/abode, was mixed up with the inheritance of the children of Judah. But ultimately, His Father, Jacob’s words over his life were fulfilled. The tribe Simeon was indeed divided and scattered among the other tribes, and yes they missed out on the same blessings the others received. Even though, Moses did bless the Levites (Levi’s descendants and co-culprit in the anger issue), they too also received no inheritance, except for where to live in. (Joshua 14:3-4). And the irony of it all that even this same Moses (a Levite by tribe) releasing the blessing did not enter his promised land on account of his anger at the waters of Meribah (Numbers 20:2-13).

So this 2017, try not to let your anger rob you of your impending showers of unabated blessing. People will try upsetting you this year, you just don’t let them. You’re not stupid, spineless and cowardly. You’re smart and you know what you’re holding out for. You’re holding out for your blessing and it will be fulfilled this year in the name of Jesus. Amen! How’s your year coming along?

My exceedingly great reward!

#WordsToLiveBy

After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Genesis 15:1 [NKJV]

….

The Lord is encouraging you today, that whatever that challenge maybe, regardless of how daunting/immovable/ intractable or downright impossible the issues have now become, they will not overcome you! Because He is your shield, He will protect you through it all, and you will not lose anything! So stop letting the worries of life keep tormenting your minds. The Lord will see you through it all. Not only will He protect you from the adverse effects of it all, He will also see to it that, it will not cause you to be out of pocket in Jesus name Amen. Remember, He is your exceedingly great reward! So stop the worrying, stay focused on Jesus, and you’ll find that He has got this covered.

I am confident of this!

#WordsToLiveBy

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 [NIV]

…..

On whom are you basing your confidence in? That’s the problem many of us have. When the storms of life comes (and believe they will come), how do you think you will be able to weather it? Because when fear, and all manner of negative thinking starts creeping into your mind, you will succumb, because who do you know in this life, (even if you don’t believe in the life after) that is dependable, and also has the authority to get you through it? I’ll tell you who, NOBODY except for Jesus! Some people wonder when they see lovers of God going through truly difficult and challenging situations, and still seem to keep a steady confident outlook; they call them “strong”, but it is not their own strength that is at work. No, it is Jesus’ strength in them and through them that is in operation. His grace! That’s why the Psalmist confidently declared “in spite of the challenges”, “even though the storms of life is willing me to give up”, I WILL NOT, why? Because I have Jesus, whose rod and staff keeps holding me up and strong, so I WILL NOT succumb? Can you imagine the difference it makes in one’s life, having Jesus on our “boat” of life? It’s a difference of Life or death, it’s a difference of whether we stay alive and live to declare His goodness in this land of the living, or death! Question is, if you don’t have Him, why not? And why would you want to go through life without Jesus anyways? The choice is always yours!

You Dry Bones Live!

#WordsToLiveBy

Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Ezekiel 37:4 [NKJV]

…….

Indeed there is no god like Jehovah! Only the Word of God can resurrect whatsoever that was once dead – lifeless, stagnant, not working, immovable, motionless – in your life back to life again! Only God can, not the word of any man or any other god that is NOT God, creator of the entire Universe [Elohim]! Whose name is Yaweh, He is the Great I AM! Thank you Jesus! Are you struggling with a dead finance, a dead vision, a dead hope, a dead future, and you’ve just about given up the will to LIVE? God is saying to you today, this moment, this very instant, speak to that situation, speak to that circumstance, COMMAND IT TO HEAR THE WORD of God and LIVE! Speak to it. It’s not by your power, or by your Might, But by the Spirit of God (Zechariah 4:6). Even God told us in John 6:63 that His words “are spirit, and they are life”. That’s the kind of power that backs every of God’s words you utter! His spoken words brings back to life, lifeless circumstances. So what are you waiting for? Prophesy to that “stagnation” that’s been crippling your life, and see if the words of God are not able to cause a transformation in your life! Don’t wait to see others doing it, try Him for your self today! Try Jesus today, and see if He will not do what He said He will do!

They LIE, HE will DEFINITELY Answer

#WordsToLiveBy

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

……

Many of us don’t understand what a wonderful privilege we have to be children of God. We know the kind of access we have to our earthly parents, how when we were younger (and many of us even when we are now older) we knew that whatever we wanted, all we needed to do was ask. And yet as children of God, we can’t even go to God to speak to Him regarding issues closer to our heart which may have been making life unbearable for us. And if for any reason, the enemy has been lying to you that you’re such a terrible person and so will never get an audience with God, the scriptures also says you CAN GO BOLDLY before God, for He is a merciful and gracious God (Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need – Hebrews 4:16). Don’t you think it’s time you ditched the enemy’s lies? Call out to God! He PROMISES that WE will DEFINITELY GET a RESPONSE from HIM. Don’t just take my word for it – Try Him out for yourself, and you’ll find that your life will never remain the same again.

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you,

“Man Up”

‪#‎WordsToLiveBy‬
“If you have raced with people on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?” Jeremiah 12:5 [NIV]
……
In our bible reading today, Jeremiah had been complaining to God and the way God responded to Him is amazing. You see in life we will always face trials of many kinds and of varying degrees.

When Jeremiah was complaining to God regarding what was happening around him, it was almost as if God was telling him to ‘man up’. As in, if you think the challenges you’re facing is a lot, how are you going to do when the rest comes? Jesus told us in John 16:33; that as long as we are in this world troubles, trials, they will come, BUT we need to be courageous. Why? Because He (Jesus) has already overcome them all for us. So in a way God was telling Jeremiah (and us) that we can’t just give up at the first sign of trouble. As a professional, in order to get a qualification you need to sit through a test, so why are we struggling to see challenges as our stepping stones to be promoted? This same Jeremiah whom God told in Jeremiah 1:3 how He had set Him apart for greatness, did he think greatness translated to a life of sitting in the gardens doing nothing? NO? Friends, it’s time you started seeing challenges as a sign of how important you are in Christ, and the greater its size, the bigger the testimony. And have faith in God, Jesus said, He has already won, so you know, regardless of how fierce the challenges may be, you will certainly be victorious. This is not the time to give up!
