How glad I was when they said let us go to the house of God. Father, thank You for the gift of another day. Thank You for the grace that is available to us unto every good works. We bless You, we worship You, we honour You now and forever in Jesus Name.

Blessed Redeemer, we are eternally grateful to You for all Your goodness and loving kindness towards us. Thank You. Thank You for Your peace of which nothing can be compared with.

Beloveth, may grace of God rest upon you today even as we go into His Word, may this letter become Spirit and life unto you, that a special understanding be given you as you dwell to eat and drink from the living water this day in Jesus’s Name. Amen!

Beloved, I believe by now you have made up your prayer list with the names of those that must blessed by God with diverse blessings ranging from salvation, healing, deliverances and restorations from your own prayer altar. Praise the Lord somebody!

You are hereby welcome to the arena of possibility by your faith. God deals with us according to our measures of faith. Are you trusting God for anything? It will surely be according to your faith. Jesus asked “Do you believe am able to do this?  Beloved, it our faith that positions us in the realm of the spirit. Faith is the currencies we use to transact business in the spiritual.

God never created any Pound, Dollar, Euro, Yen, Cedi or Naira, but according to your faith will you have all these to transact within the physical. God gives you ideas that will translate to any currency of the world and you are good to go.

Beloved, God wants to build you up to the level that you need not to be afraid or shaken by the situations around you. He wants you to know that He thinks about you more than you do for yourself. He wants you to know that you are His business and His project therefore, you must not fail but must pull through.

Have you seen a child prays? Sometime we think that they are not too spiritual to pray well but that is the level God want to bring you and I to. When you pray, believe that is done. Do you notice also that they don’t repeat prayers because they believe that God is not deaf not to hear the first time, to them it done and you see God honoring their faith.

Ever experience when your little child comes with all the demands of buy me this, buy me that? He or she believes mummy or daddy can buy it expect when you come crying you don’t have money. Sometimes they suggest to you on how to go about it, funny though but they simply cannot take no as an answer, to them everything is possible. Give them next two or five years, they will still repeat it with every sense of possibility. Praise God.

The faith that does not ask is not telling you not to pray or ask anything but rather as you pray do also believe that what you ask shall be given you, not insisting on miraculous sign to prove that is done.

Remember Abraham? God dealt with him till he came to the level that he trusted God and that was when he received of God what was promised. How do we confirm that?

Remember when God demanded Isaac for a sacrifice. The same Abraham, who could not trust God at first for the promised son now want to sacrifices the same son. Why the transformation? The simple reason I believe is that he had come to trust God that if He takes Isaac away, another son will be given him. Did God did that? O yes! sure He did. God provided the lamb for the sacrifice.

Abraham walked with God and God taught him to trust Him in all things; at all time. Beloved that is where God is taking us, by the end of this month you will be so enriched in your knowledge of God and so blessed with the experiences He is bring your way.

Am blessed. I don’t know about you but follow me as we discover more from the message below:

“An evil and adulterous generation wants a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” Then He left them and went away.—Matthew 16:4

Asking God for a miracle may indicate a lack of faith. Some feel that they demonstrate great faith by continually asking God for miracles. They assume that in every situation God wants to do the spectacular. They presume, for example, that God wants to heal anyone who is sick or provide a miraculous escape from every difficulty they face. Jesus condemned those who insisted that He perform miracles, because He knew their hearts. He recognized that they could not believe Him without constantly undergirding their faith with signs. Their faith was not strong enough to survive without a regular supply of the miraculous. Jesus condemned this lack of faith and left them.

There are times when we prefer the miracle over the miracle worker. God calls this idolatry, and He discouraged it by refusing to provide miracles on demand (Jer. 2:11–13). Sometimes the greatest act of faith is not to ask for a miracle. One of the most amazing statements of faith in the Old Testament came from Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as they faced the fiery furnace because of their obedience to God.

They expressed true faith when they assured king Nebuchadnezzar: “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up” (Dan. 3:17–18). They were confident in God’s ability to deliver them, but they trusted Him so completely that they did not ask to be spared.

Does your faith need miracles to sustain it? Or do you trust God so totally that you can say, “But if not, I will still trust the Lord!”?

Trusting God first when situation arises in your life is what God requires of us anything short of it is idolatry according to the next verse before us. Let’s find out more:

This is what the Lord says:

Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind,

who makes [human] flesh his strength

and turns his heart from the Lord.—Jeremiah 17:5

The Israelites of Jeremiah’s day believed they could trust in their army, the diplomacy of their king, and their foreign alliances to protect them from the powerful Babylonian empire. They gave lip service to their trust in God, but their actions showed where their faith really was: in their military and financial might. God spoke through Jeremiah to warn them that He would not bless those who trusted in anyone or anything instead of Him.

Placing your ultimate trust in anything other than God is idolatry. How can you know if your faith is not truly in God? Ask yourself these questions: Where do I turn when I experience a crisis? When I am hurting or afraid, to whom do I go? When I have a financial problem, whom do I want to tell first? Where do I seek comfort when I am under stress or discouraged?

Could it be that you are saying you trust in God but your actions indicate otherwise? God often uses other people as His method of providing for you. Be careful lest you inadvertently misdirect your faith toward His provision instead of toward the Provider. God may meet your need through your friends, but ultimately your trust must be in God.

The Israelites were so stubbornly committed to trusting in human strength instead of God that, even as the Babylonian army approached Jerusalem, they continued to desperately seek for a person, or a nation, or an army that could rescue them. They realized too late that they had neglected to trust in the only One who could deliver them.

Don’t make the same mistake as the Israelites. Go straight to the Lord when you have a need. He is the only One who can provide for you.

Beloved, let us grow our faith or do I say “release” ourselves to God. Why did I say that? Someone is saying I will try to grow my faith but I will still be interested to know what God is doing. They don’t trust God enough to release all to Him, they still want to be in-charge of some things if not all. However, it important you know that, is when you release yourself to God that the Holy Spirit will be able to help your infirmities, heal you and restore you. Praise God.

Receive grace to “release all” into God’s hand and trust Him to take you safely to your destination (Ps 56:3). Stop helping God.

Praise God somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
