A love quite extraordinary!

Verse of the Day

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below–indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. [NLT] Romans 8:38-39
………
That’s how loved you are! That’s how important you are! That’s how precious you are. Don’t let anyone deceive you with a less ordinary version. You’re quite extraordinary in the sight of God! That’s why nothing, nothing you could ever think of could ever separate you from the love of God.

You’ve not come this far only to Quit

Verse of the Day

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. [NLT] Psalm 37:4

………

Its half way through the year, and maybe for some of us, some of the goals and plans you set out to achieve this year never quite gathered a momentum. Maybe you had some really high expectations that the initial hard work will set the pace for the dreams to become a reality. Or quite possibly because of how long it’s taking, you’ve maybe given up on that audacious plan and have now settled for a life less ordinary. Is this the response of many of you? You still mustn’t give up on that dream. The Word of the Lord says that He will grant you your heart’s desire. The desires of your heart will not go unfulfilled. All your hard work will one day come to fruition, only if you are willing to persist in it. I’m not sure if this is timely, but even I have found that some of my plans that I started out 2014 with, with such enthusiasm have started to wane. So sometimes, it’s good to do a reflection on where you are, what you’ve done so far and how much of the plan still remains to be completed. It’s true that there may still be much work to be achieved, but I’m sure if you were to look back at the last six months, you will see that there have been some milestones which you’ve reached, and that my friend, may not have been the ultimate, but it was still a goal that came to pass :D. You still have another six months to press even harder. This is not the time or the place to give up; and because you take #delight in #God, He will not rest until He has made you the golden wonder that you are :D. Keep pressing on! Your life and destiny is worth fighting for! #2014PlansReview #2014GoalsReveiew #HowWellImIDoing

Verse of the Day

‘Days go by, and every vision comes to nothing’? [GWT] Ezekiel 12:22B

….

You may have started your year with great plans, worked tirelessly hard to see them fulfilled, and maybe for one reason or the other you may have started to say to yourself “what is the point?” “Time is passing and still nothing is coming of this vision”. You’ve had no visible/tangible fruits from your hard work. The Lord is saying to you “The time is near when every vision will come true” [Ezek. 12:23C]. Those visions / goals of yours will not end in vain, and He will help you to make a success of them. The desired/destined end is nearer than you think! #Don’t give up on the vision!

Verse of the Day

Your wound is as deep as the sea. Who can heal you? [NIV] Lamentations 2:13G

….

Did I hear someone ask you that question? Have you spent weeks, months even years pondering on this question without any success? Have you searched and searched and found no answer and no one to help you? Have you tried #Jesus? The LORD’s love is so great that whatever it is you’re facing will never consume you! Why? Because He is always compassionate, and He renews His compassion for you every morning! And because of His constant compassion for you, He will never ever fail you. Having Jesus in your makes all the difference, because having Him as your portion, means regardless of what happens, or how long a situation in your life is taking, He will always  come through for you. But you may say, but I have Him, but my situations aren’t getting any better. Wait for Him. Because of his compassionate love for you, which is always constant, you can be rest assured that Jesus can be relied upon, and because He see you, He will never abandon you. Wait for Jesus, only He can heal you. No one else!

Verse of the Day

The LORD asked, “Is it right for you to be angry?” [HCSB] Jonah 4:4

……

Certain things may not be working out at the pace you expected them to be. Quite possibly you’ve become a little irritated at the progress of others around you when compared to your life’s progress. Don’t let your focus be distracted. It’s understandable for you to be angry, but it is not right for you to be. The Lord, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the land, has the right to do as He pleases, and He pleases to bless you. So what it’s taken a little longer in showing up, or miss T, already has hers, don’t let that disquieten you. All that matters is that Jesus has you in His thoughts and you are not forgotten. And sooner than you think, everything will work out just fine!

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!

Verse of the Day.

But they do not know the LORD’s thoughts or understand his plan. [NLT] Micah 4:12a

….

You may be experiencing some discomforts, maybe at work, home or even at your favourite place. Don’t let the way others treat/think of you affect your joy/how you see yourself. Whatever it may be will not destroy you; and even though it appears to be stealing your joy, the purpose of the Lord, His words and design for your life, will indefatigably stand. You will never be relegated to become a failure in life; neither will your days be spent in sadness and bitterness. No one knows the thoughts and plans of the Lord, only He knows, and He’s working it all out for you. Take heart, #Jesus cares!
