GOOD,BETTER,BEST

I always love the saying, good, better, best. However, the only time we choose to use it, is when we lost something or someone. It is an effective quotation to hide our hurt, pain, and devastation. But if we look at it from a different perspective, there is a lot of truth behind the quote. I have been in situations where, I have lost a job I thought was good, then got a better one, lost that to get the best, with more money.

That’s why I stand on God’s word, and His promises, because,that’s when I realize that the quotation is true, it says:’And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose'(Romans 8:28). It’s always in losses, that God opens our eyes to see the blessings, He has in store for us, its then we see His grace, and mercies manifested, it’s then we should lose focus of the things, and people of this world, and focus on the only one who can see us through, and bring us out of the storms of life. Yes friends let me tell you, like it is: ‘we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed   ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-9).  

 I  love Gladys Knight song but I have to re-write it to suit me, ‘If anyone should ever write my life story, for whatever reason, please tell them Jesus is the best thing that ever happen to me’. The world can’t top what Jesus did on Calvary, no man or woman, no job, no degree, nothing can beat out Gods best for us.

Let me reveal a little secret to you, when we are afflicted, talked about, and mistreated, it is for our consolation and salvation.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God   ( 2 Corinthians 1:3-7). ‘Finally, my brethren,rejoice in the Lord…beware of dogs, people who do evil, and the mutilations of the flesh, for we are the circumcision, who worship God in the spirit, so lets rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh'(Philippians 3:1-3). If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, go immediately to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions, don’t delay tomorrow might be too late, open up your heart and let the redeemer in, it will be the best thing you ever did, and the best gift you ever received.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out to His people, I pray it blesses you as it did me, and may you obey His will, and walk according to His ways in Jesus Name, amen.

THE DEVIL’S HIT LIST

Are you on the devil’s V.I.P list,or his hit list. Let’s face the facts,the devil never loved us,and never will,we are on his hit list,so we could be killed. However, the good news is that he is already defeated, because Jesus went down to hell, so that we could be well; they put Him in a hole, so that we could be made whole. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Because of this the Christian is on the devils hit list, the most wanted, the most troubled; Jesus knew exactly what we would be going through, the hardship, persecutions, ridicules, and insults. That’s why Paul said, ‘Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God (1 Corinthians 1:3-4). Most people are duped into believing that once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, it’s smooth sailing from then on, the devil is a liar, because, that’s when the devil personally put you on a hit list just to make you mess up. No problem, because, that’s when true faith in the God you serve is activated, that’s when you have to know all of God’s promises, like: “Greater is He that is in you, than He that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4), or “He will never leave or forsake us.” (Hebrew 13:5), His grace is sufficient for us; for His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9); We are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37).

Please don’t make the mistake like Job did, thinking he could find comfort in his friends (Job 16:2). There will be occasions where we are burdened beyond measure, above our natural ability, and strength till we are despaired of life. This is why Paul tells us that as Christians, we should comfort each other, with the same comfort, God comforts us with. Paul encourages us to do that because there are believers out there who have never really hit rough waters, or feel abandoned, destitute, and broken, this is the reason why we can’t forsake the assembling of ourselves (Hebrews 10:25) because, this is where the Five fold ministry is activated, to exhort, teach, and edify the body of Christ so that we can be perfect and unified in faith and the knowledge of the Son of God (Ephesians 4:11-12). Now unfortunately, all we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord had laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not His mouth (Isaiah 53:6-7). Jesus paid it all, gave us the victory, the power and authority to tread on serpents, scorpions, and all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19) so let’s stand victorious and triumphantly like the champions He turned us into.
