HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT

Sometimes it takes drastic circumstances or measures to get our undivided attention. Why must we lose a love one, our jobs, possessions, or get sick, before we turn to God. The sad thing about it, is that’s the time, when we are exposed, and most vulnerable, thus allowing us to do, and accept things, we will regret later on in life. But I must tell you, that is the time when God is waiting with open arms to receive us. He tells us, ”His grace is sufficient for us; because His strength is made perfect in our weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). We should never allow, our circumstances to dictate how we think, or behave. Because, it is then we make the biggest mistakes of our lives. Normally, this is the best time to seek God (Matthew 6:33), and acknowledge Him, so that He can direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Please don’t accept, and receive Gods word in some areas of your life, and don’t apply it, when you need it the most. ‘Gods word should always be a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path'(Psalms 119:105). Gods word is the best weapon, that exists to combat the enemies, of our thoughts, doubts, fears, evils, mediocrity, and low self-esteem. Allow the word of God to speak life into your circumstances. Lets start with,”many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivered him out of them all”(Psalms 34:19),God says,”His plans for us, is to prosper, and not harm us, to give us hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), we are more than conquerors, because He loves us (Romans 8:37), when all else fails, there is only one alternative, and He is God, follow the professionals in the Bible, who have been there, and done that.

One of my favorites was David, he had a tumultuous life, troubles, defeat, failures, and disappointments, but he was still blessed, and highly favored. Check it out for your self, he wrote most, if not all the Psalms, listen to this one, “I was young, and now I am old; but I have never seen the righteous forsaken; nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25). All through the Psalms, he beged, cried, prayed, and God always helped him. Because, David always praised, thanked, and sang to Him (God). Listen to what David said, “I will praise the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1), “but I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more, my mouth shall tell of your righteousness, and your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits”(Psalms 71:14 -15). When God helps you, are you hiding it? It’s no secret what God can do. Are you taking all the credit for yourself, telling people, how educated you are, or how pretty you are, that’s why you are where you are, you better stop that. Please folks allow God to supply your needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:19), and let the world knows.

Beloved, God has sent His only begotten son, into the world, as payment for our sins, if you believe, and accept Him (John 3:16; John 6:40). I don’t care what anyone says, Jesus is the only way to God, John 14:6 says so.

I implore you, to taste and see that the Lord is good, and blessed are the people who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8, and 119:103), if you have never met Jesus, let me introduce you to Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best decision, and choice you ever make. I give God the glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to deliver, his message to His people, I hope it blessed you, as it did me, I pray that He will keep you, and guide you, to obey His will, and travel down His paths in Jesus Name, amen.

VICTORY IS YOURS

No matter how things look,don’t give up,nor quit,just stand still and watch God turn your circumstances around ,by turning your messes into messages, your tests into a testimonies, your trials into triumphs and turn yourself from being a victim to becoming a victor. How? Well you have to accept a few things and the first being Gods gift of his only begotten son, Jesus Christ. You have to believe that God sent Him to save us (John 3:16) and Jesus is our way to God. Jesus told us the truth about God and granted us eternal life (John 14:6; John 6:40) and because of him we are more than conquerors ( Romans 8:37).

In Matthew 16:19 Jesus said,”I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven and what you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”. 1 John 4:4 says that “You, little children, are of God and have overcome them; because greater is He (God) who is in you than he that is in the world.” In Luke 10:19 God says: Behold, I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. With this power nothing shall, by any means, hurt you.”

Now go unto Him, he who is able to do exceedingly abundant things above all that we ask or think of, according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20). Come on children of God, you need to exercise your power and activate your strength. Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us which means victory is ours! If you feel left out of Gods promises it’s because you know and feel that you are not one of His children. be strong and change that today!

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.

If you don’t know God or His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth then go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the greatest thing you ever did,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,guide,and direct your path,for the rest of your life. All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God, Our Heavenly Father for using me to deliver His message.

WHO HE IS TO US

Just in case you never heard or you forgot, let me tell you about the God I serve:

He is my deliverer, He is my strength, He is my King of Kings, He is my Lord of Lords, He is my shield, He is my fortress, He is my redeemer, He is the great I AM. Do you know Him?

His mercy is everlasting, His truth is enduring, His grace is limitless, His love is unconditional, His peace surpasses all understanding, His joy only comes in the morning, Do you know Him?

He is Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the End, He is the First and the Last, He is one of a kind, He does not report to no one, He is God all by Himself, Do you know Him?

He is Jehovah the Eternal one, He is Jehovah -Tsidkenu our righteousness, He is Jehovah-Jireh our provider, He is Jehovah-Shalom our peace, He is Jehovah-Nissi our banner, He is Jehovah-Shammah our present help, Do you know Him?

He is Omnipotent which is all-powerful, He Omniscient which is all-knowing, He is Omnipresent which means He is everywhere, Do you know him?

He is my comforter, He is my friend, He is my teacher, He is my guide, He is my healer, He is my doctor, He is my lawyer, He is my interpreter, He is my savior, Do you know Him?

He said, He will never leave me, nor forsake me ( Hebrew 13:5, Joshua 1:5), He said, He is my light, my salvation, and the strength of my life, so I must not be afraid (Psalm 27:1), He said, all things will work together for my good, just because I love Him(Romans 8:28), He said, I am more than a conqueror, because He loves me (Romans 8:37).

He told me to trust Him  with all my heart, and don’t depend on my own understanding, and to acknowledge Him, so that He can direct my path ( Proverbs 3:5-6), He assured me that nothing can separate me from His love ( Romans 8:38-39), He told me He is God, and beside Him there is no other (Isaiah 45:5), Do you know Him?

He told me that, His plans for me is prosperity, hope, and a future ( Jeremiah 29:11), He said, no weapons formed against me will ever prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgement will be condemned(Isaiah 54:17), Now do you want to know Him?

He told me, to tell you that, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variables, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17), and He loves you so much that,”He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” ( John 3:16), He said, not to believe the hype, nor lies of the enemy, because He sent His son, not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17), He also said, that His son is the only way to Him (John 14:6, John 8:32, Romans 5:21).

Listen, this is what is written about Jesus,”God hath highly exalted Him, and give Him a name, which is above every other Name. That at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow, and every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God (Philippians 2:9-11), He never forsakes those that seek Him (Psalms 9:9-10, Matthew 6:33).

Now if you want to know Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best thing you ever did. I give  God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people, I hope it blesses you as it did me.

STRENGTH FROM ABOVE

The devil will hit you where the sun don’t shine, and you need to know that he is a tactical expert, very strategic, cunning in spiritual warfare, and he does not fight fair. You ever notice that when something goes wrong, like a sequence of events as if all hell broke loose on your life. Well you need to know that, the devil is like a roaring lion walking about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8), therefore he knows where, when, and how to hit you, he holds no punches, and he won’t stop until you drop.

But that’s ok, don’t worry and don’t fret because Jesus came to earth, to defeat him. Jesus gave us back the power and authority, He showed us how to use it, and when to use it. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). We also have Jesus’ great commission, “To go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature, he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow those who believe: In Jesus name they shall cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:15-18).

The devil does not want you to know, that you have all that power, and he doesn’t want you to use it, so he walks around collecting information, and accumulating data on your life, so he can attack you at your most vulnerable moment. But children of God, when you read, and hear God’s Word, then apply it to your life, you become more than a conqueror(Romans 8:37). Greater is God, who is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). What then shall we say, If God be for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31).

That’s when the devil gets meaner and starts using your family, friends, and finances against you. Most people who are unaware of the devils devises spend money on these so-called experts like, psychologists, behavioral analysis, and medicines, yet failing to realize, that the devil is on a rampage, trying to cripple and weaken us, again failing to realize and know that, when we are weak, that’s when Our Heavenly Father becomes strong (1 Corinthians 4:10). As believers, we also need to know that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Lets stand firm, study, and be rooted in God’s word, so that the devils tactics, and devises will be ineffective, and useless against the child of God. There are many accounts, evidence, and stories of people who have overcome and are conquerors, just read Hebrews 11:1-34; and start exercising your God-given authority. The only way to have access to God’s power is through His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9, John 14:6 are the scriptures to confirm this fact, so to get to know Him go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. It will be the best thing you ever did. To receive protection from the enemy, you have to go to the specialist, His name is Jesus.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me, to share His message. May the God of grace, mercy, and peace guide you to do His will now and forever amen.
