Verse of the Day.
For the LORD is the one who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals his thoughts to mankind. He turns the light of dawn into darkness and treads on the heights of the earth. The LORD God of Heaven’s Armies is his name! [Amos 4:13]
No one can fully understand the thoughts and plans of the Lord, or why He chooses to do what He does, but if you walk with Him, He will give you a glimpse of it all. The Word of the Lord says, “Almighty LORD doesn’t do anything unless He [first] reveals his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). You are the Prophet of your life, which means that God can reveal to you what He plans to do in your life. Don’t you think He’s worth knowing? He is the LORD God of Heaven’s Armies, and with Him on your side, you don’t ever have to fear the challenging times because you already know how they will all end!
“O Sovereign LORD! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you! [NLT] Jeremiah 32:17
Nothing is ever difficult for God to do, neither are your dreams and desires too much for the Lord to bring to pass. He is the Sovereign Lord; He is the God of heaven and earth. All powers belong to Him, and nothing happens with his knowledge of it. Don’t let your spirit be downcast because of what is happening around you. You are not alone. Yes the dream may be a little too big, but that doesn’t mean God cannot make it happen. Everything will work out fine! You can count on God for that. I’ve known Him to be always faithful. Indeed, He has never disappointed me, and surely He will never disappoint you. Keep your faith alive and the fire of your faith burning! Your faith in Him will never be a displaced one. He’s definitely got the memo. He’s working some “things” out, your “things” to be more precise ;). Don’t let the disillusion get the better of you! You’re much stronger that!
How great are His miracles, and how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation. [HCSB] Daniel 4:3
#Jehovah, God of Heaven and Earth, Creator of the entire world, He alone is God! His powers are so great “very great, exceeding great; so great that it cannot be said, nor even conceived how great they are, what a display of wisdom, power, and goodness is in them; they are wonderful beyond expression and conception; and so strong and mighty as not to be resisted and made void by all the powers of nature, earth, or hell; and if this may be said of his works of providence, and his miracles of that, how much more of his works and miracles of grace!” His #Kingdom, the Kingdom of His son our Lord Jesus #Christ, His #grace and His #mercy, is an everlasting one; forever and ever, going through all generations, even till the end of time, His Kingdom is without end!
Oh how great are you El Elyon, My lord and my God!

“I know that you can do everything and that your plans are unstoppable. [GWT] Job 42:2
Many of us may have one way or another, maybe through family, friends or even colleagues have had a theoretical knowledge of The God of Heaven and earth, and not a practical knowledge of Him. Hence why when someone says “I’ve found Him to be a doctor in a sick-room, or a lawyer in a courtroom” it’s a little difficult to relate with, since you feel, I’ve never had a practical / physical knowledge of Him, so therefore He doesn’t exist. But like most things, if you want to see/feel an example, you will need to one, be open minded that God exists and, two actively seek this out to find out if there is any truth about it. Yes “Job” knew that God existed, but it took him to have a practical dealing (if that is a right word) / experience God in a new way, for him to know for certain that God, not only could do all things, but that God also had a right to do whatever He pleases. And that ultimately whatever God chooses to do He usually did very well, wisely and in a righteous way. And that having God by your side, you become practically unstoppable. So next time, you’re wondering if God is God, try finding out for yourself by asking Him to show Himself to you. Enough of all the theoretical knowledge about Him, the practical knowledge of Him is what will sustain you throughout your lifetime, and those of your loved ones. Why don’t you try Him today! You will never regret it!
But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. [NLT] Exodus 14:13
Your goals are not beyond your reach! It’s quite possible the mode of reaching it maybe the problem. Have you ignored the work that needs to be done to get the end result? Misunderstood that there needs to be a process, a process that requires persistence in the face of stubborn, immovable obstacles? One of the many deal breakers that prevents us from reaching our goals, is misunderstanding of all the processes that is necessary in order to get there. We have seen the end results, but we forget that there will be challenges, insurmountable work/problems that we will need to crossover/overcome in order to get to our goals. Don’t try to give in, give up, quit, or leave at the first sign of problem, be resolute in your thinking, in your focus, and persist till the very end. Your dreams/desires are there for a purpose, have faith in Jehovah, and you will see that the insurmountable encounters that kept you awake at night, or that was trying to deny you of your end result are inconsequential before Jehovah. The Lord God HIMSELF is with you. He will guide you through it all. Only believe and put your faith to work. #Don’t misunderstand the process, master it and cross into your desired end result with the help of Jehovah!
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. [NLT] Galatians 6:9
Why was the noble dream conceived and for what purpose? What made you so passionate about it, and why has it always been at the forefront of your mind? Was it there to torment you, or to remind you of what you are capable of achieving? Much more than these, the #Lord created you for greatness, to impact your community, your surroundings, your family. Much more than these, He created you to reflect the nature of His Being. The God of heaven and earth is the CREATOR of the entire Universe, and by Him all things were made. Activate your creative nature on your surroundings. The plans, the purpose, the dreams, you have them for a reason. They were woven in the fibre of your being for a reason. Yes, there is much work to be done for the purpose to be realised, but remember, His strength that He has given to you has already activated all the fibres of your being to do what it only knows how to do, to make things happen! #This is not the time to give up on the dream! #Everyday spent working on it is a day closer to the realisation of it!
“And now the LORD God of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, asks you: Why are you destroying yourselves? [NLT] Jeremiah 44:7a
If we are honest with ourselves, truly honest, we will find that there are some #habits, some things that we do, that are injurious to us, to our existence. Some of which if we are not careful could lead to an early #grave. But you know, you cannot continue in this manner. You are way too precious, and loved to lead such a life. It’s time to find a way to stop doing/living that destructive lifestyle. You’re probably saying that it’s easier said than done. The first step is to make up your mind to stop and ASK #Jesus to help you. He has the power to change even impossible bad habits in your life to a good one. Ask Him today and see if He will not be able to turn that stench in your life into a beautiful aroma 😀
