Come and have Your Way again and do that which only You can do…we bless Your Holy Name…forever and ever Amen!!!

Beloveth…good morning…how are you doing today? Our God is beautiful in all situations… glory be to His Holy Name forever and ever Amen!!!

Last week we dwelt on one of the theme for the month- Grace…today by God’s grace we have another glance on grace and them consider Mercy as with God…as God want from us also by tommorw and beyond… don’t miss this week teaching because you will be thoroughly bless in Jesus Name….

We will be defining grace and mercy once again for our deeper understanding …

Grace, Mercy, and Peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 2 Jn 1:3-

Grace -is receiving something that we don’t deserve. While mercy – is not getting what we do deserve. However these hand-in-hand sisters are so much more. Let’s begin with grace…

The Old Testament Hebrew word translated as Grace in our Bible is CHEN, meaning favour, graciousness, kindness, beauty, pleasantness, charm, loveliness, elegance, and affectionate regard. The root word CHANAN means to act graciously, compassionately or mercifully toward someone.

In New Testament Greek word CHARIS used for Grace, we find its root stemming from the Greek words CHARA, meaning joy; and CHAIRO to rejoice. CHARIS produces rejoicing because of pleasure and delight it brings to its recipients. New Testament Grace is kindness received or desired, a benefit, favour, or a gift, acceptance, approval, generosity, oprn-heartedness, and magnanimity.

Which of these definitions of Grace expands your heart, warms your soul, or soothes your thoughts? Which of these definitions do you need in your life at this moment? They are yours and found in Jesus!

Grace is the word given by the New Testament writers to describes God’s favour, acceptance, and His free, no-strings attached gifts and blessings. His grace is the extension of His AGAPE, unconditional love toward humanity that Christ’s work on the cross ultimately expressed- that beyond extraordinary and stunning evidence of His divine and boundless benevolence.

Grace is God’s Holy influences upon our lives- first drawing  our hearts to Christ (Eph 2:8). It then effectively continues as He delivers us from bondages, keeping and strengthening us in our faith, and providing the Holy Spirit’ gifts necessary for us to wage war against the prince of this world- the devil (1 Cor. 12:4-10). It is also what the Apostle Paul  describes as the source for fulfilling the call upon our lives whereby we minister Jesus to others by His grace working in and through us (1 Cor. 15:10).

As we ponder on Grace, it takes our breath away! Grace is not a little wading pool that is small, stingy, or selfish; it is a limitless ocean relentlessly, washing wave after ocean relentlessly washing wave of this wave of His Divine favor, Kindness, and acceptance over our lives. And Jesus’ Grace comes to our rescue smack dad in the middle of the very habits and behaviors we are ashamed of even acknowledging.

Beloveth…. isnt it wonderful that God gave us what we deserved not? Come along as we consider today’s topic – Speaking with Authority! Jesus even as a Son of God, grace made the difference in His life and ministry (Lk 4:18)…. :                                                                        

They were astonished at His teaching because, unlike the scribes, He was teaching them as one having authority.—Mark 1:22

Jesus was not the first person to teach the Scriptures to a group of disciples. The people in Jesus’ day had heard other teachers of the Scriptures. What set Jesus apart was that He taught with authority. To many of the scribes, the Scriptures were meaningless, dry collections of theological speculation, but Jesus taught them as the living words of God.

John the Baptist claimed that a man could only receive that which had been given to him by God (John 3:27). When the religious leaders searched the Scriptures, they came away empty-handed. When Jesus read the same Scriptures, the Father gave Him a full measure of His wisdom and His authority.

There is a radical difference between practicing religion and sharing a word directly from the Lord. There is a significant difference between worldly reasoning and counsel that comes straight from the living word of God. Is it possible to teach a message from the Bible but not from the Lord?

Yes! The scribes and Pharisees did this regularly and left their listeners spiritually destitute. Is it possible to counsel someone with advice that seems appropriate and reasonable and yet is contrary to God’s word? Of course!

Whenever you teach, counsel, or share a word of encouragement, be very careful that the words you share are indeed from the Lord and are not just your own thinking. Otherwise, you could become a false prophet (Deut. 18:20–22).

God promises to stand by every word He has ever spoken (Isa. 55:10–11). When you share a word that has come from God, you can do so with utmost confidence!

Yes utmost difference which we can get in the grace from God upon our lives and ministry…. Father we rest on You… favour us through your grace and make us Your oracles in Jesus Name….

Beloveth, the same grace that spoke for the Jesus is available for us in the house … an Unusual Grace is locating someone now… Great Grace is your portion in Jesus Name….

On this note beloveth, we declare this week blessed and by God’s grace we will return with greater testimonies in Jesus Name…

Further Reading – Jn 1:16, Eph 2:4-9, 1 Cor 15:9-11, 2 Cor 12:7-10.

Remain blessed the Lord.

 

Iron Sharpens Iron

So incredible is the work of grace in our lives that we don’t  know half of it… but thank God for the gift of His Holy Spirit that takes us from glory to glory alleluia.. somebody!!!

Grace over grind is what we considered this week… in your walk/work with God and environs… very important… so that you don’t burn out… satan is parading all manners in our society international and local… what was hardly heard of is now an open secret, so we need to double our walk/work in God else we miss it… may God put His shield over and around us now and forever in Jesus Name….

Today we will be considering again the impact of grace against grind… this should have been the first message on this topic but we decide to bring it last having taken time to explain the difference between grace and grind… as God’s children we operate in many sphere of life some in business, secular and some in the spiritual sphere in all of it…God want us to be faithfully depending on Him and not on ourselves Praise the Lord.

The key to experiencing God’s best in business and your spiritual life…

In the world of entrepreneurship even in some churches, hustle and grind is a deliberated way of life. some of the expressions you will commonly hear or read on t-shirts, mugs, and social media memes are “ I’m on my grind”,  “Rise and grind!”, “Team No Sleep”,  “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, “I hustle hard”,  good things come to those who grind”… the list goes on.

Well meaning Christians have modified the idea of hustle and grind to make it more Jesus- friendly which has led to phrases such as:

Wake. Pray. Grind.

Eat. Pray. Hustle.

Hustle for Jesus.

God. goals. Grind.

Grinding for God.

The phrase are different and they sound more spiritual, but the prevailing mindset is the same.

When you look up the definition of grind in the dictionary, it is defined as requiring much exertion and excessive hard work. synonyms for grind include the words struggle, attempt, and strain. When you look up the definition of hustle, it is defined as making strenuous efforts to obtain especially money or business. This should not be your testimony and quite frankly it doesn’t have to be.

The cost of a hustle and grind mindset (even if you pray first or say you are doing it for Jesus) is simply too great for kingdom entrepreneurs. There is a supernatural realm that too many Christian business owners are failing to tap into because they are too busy grinding, running fast and furious to accomplish as much as possible and as quickly as possible.

We have spend few days over this topic and our hope is that you will accept the invitation from Abba, Your heavenly Father, to transform the way you work so you can experience His best- Eph 3:20 type of best which is more than you could ask oe even imagine….

And that why we come brought this topic to us – As iron sharpens iron, so a one man sharpens another…. So that you will learn to lean on Master Jesus for that awesome output, results and experiences in your work/ walk with God…

Be yea encourage even if things are working out the way you expect lean on God… accept His grace…drop your burden at His feet and see Him manifest His glory in your secular and spiritual life… amen!!!

Come along for more:

 

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.—Proverbs 27:17

The Christian life is a pilgrimage. At times the road is difficult, and we get lonely. Sometimes we may become discouraged and consider abandoning the journey. It is at such times that God will place a friend alongside us. One of God’s most precious gifts to us is friends who encourage us and lovingly challenge us to “keep going.”

According to Scripture, a friend is one who challenges you to become all that God intends. Jonathan could have succeeded his father to become the next king of Israel. But he loved his friend David, and he encouraged him to follow God’s will, even though it meant Jonathan would forfeit his own claim to the throne (1 Sam. 19:1–7).

The mark of biblical friends is that their friendship draws you closer to Christ. They “sharpen” you and motivate you to do what is right. True friends tell you the truth and even risk hurting your feelings because they love you and have your best interests at heart (Prov. 27:6).

Be careful in your choice of friends! Jesus chose His closest friends wisely. He did not look for perfect friends, but friends whose hearts were set to follow God. It is equally important to examine the kind of friend you are to others. As a friend, it is your duty to put the needs of others first (Prov. 17:17).

Strive to find godly friends who will challenge you to become the person God desires. When you have found them, be receptive to the way God uses them to help you become spiritually mature. Strive also to be the kind of friend that helps others become more like Christ.

Beloveth… did you read that the last sentence… stick to that instruction… as grace is made available for you… let it work for your good in Jesus Name… can you successively differentiate between grinding and grace… on which side are you? may we receive God’s grace in work and walk in Jesus Name….

Have a blessed weekend… see you on Monday by God’s grace… meditate on the things you have learn … this season must settle our cases in Jesus Name…

 

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Faithful with the Impossible

He is alive forever…He is alive…Jesus is alive forever He is alive Amen… He is alive forever…He is alive…Jesus is alive forever He is alive Amen…// What shall I say unto the Lord…all I have to say is thank You Lord…x2 Thank You Lord, Thank You Lord, all I have to say is thank You Lord….x2

Our Father in heaven we say thank You Lord for all the good things You have done for us…You are doing and will yet do…glory be to Your Name on high…in Jesus Name… O God that answers prayer…Praise Your Name El-Shaddai… Glory be to You on high in Jesus Name…Amen… Amen alleluia…Amen Alleluia Amen…

Let the Living water flow over my soul…Let the Holy Spirit come and take control…if every situation that troubles my heart…all my care and burden unto Thee I come…..

Yes Father unto Thee Your children comes this day…have You way in our life…do that which only can do.. We lift up our hands unto You and we say be Thou exalted O Lord in Jesus Name… Amen…Amen…Amen!!!

Beloveth… is faith clinic, are you excited…. Yes without faith is impossible to please God… a shout of alleluia!!!!!!!!!! By God’s grace the Lord Himself will increase our faith in Him…He will help us and make us mighty men/women of valour as He did Gideon in Jesus Name… Hear the testimony about Elijah in James 5:17-18. “Elijah was a man of like passion with us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth for three years and six months. And he prayed again; and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit…”

What about Moses, Abraham, David, Joshua, they are products of faith wrought by grace and this season God is looking for someone that will increase the names of the faithful and He has found you as He did found Gideon….you are making the list of the hall of faith at this season in Jesus Name… Amen!!!!!!

Being faithful with the impossible can only be possible through faith in Christ Jesus through grace… Amen! Or how can a man like Moses stood before Pharaoh if not by grace, he would have been crushed but because he was covered by grace, Pharaoh entertained his various visits to the palace… (Exo 3:12a).

Today, we are going to consider the second gift of grace- ‘Favour’…. When the grace is abound favour as gift is bestowed. Again in Exo 3:21, God said to Moses “I will cause the Egyptians to look favourably on you. They will give you gifts when you go so you will not leave empty-handed.

Beloveth Divine (or supernatural) favour is a demonstration of God’s sovereignty and loving kindness towards His children. It is a manifestation of blessing that is designed to help you and to help others extend the kingdom of God on earth. It is an amazing benefit of working by God’s grace.

The favour of God yields both material and spiritual benefits. It brings influence, divine appointment, divine connections, promotion, unusual preferential treatment from people, sudden breakthroughs, financial provision, redemption from missed opportunities- all of which you could not have done on your own and all of which will ultimately glorify God in the eyes of others and draw you into closer relationship with Him.

With divine favour, things that would have taken you ten years  to do in your business or spiritual life will be accomplished within months. You will find yourself sitting in key meetings that you normally wouldn’t have the credentials to be invited to. Things that otherwise would have been impossible suddenly are made possible. You absolutely need the favour of God (and favour of men that He orchestrates) in order to accomplished the dreams He has placed in your heart for both the market place and your spiritual growth.

When God places you in favoured position, He gives you influence in order to be a blessing to the people around you. You are blessed (empowered to prosper) in order to be a blessing to others (Gen12:2). It is certainly possible to earn the favour of men and gain influence in your own strength, but too many entrepreneurs (soul winners) stop with the natural favour that must be earned. The invitation God is offering you is to ignite a confident expectation for something distinctively more powerful than natural favour that is earned and maintained on your own.

He is inviting you to experience divine favour in business and other spheres of life; favour that is orchestrated by Him.

The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and deliver Israel from the power of Midian. Am I not sending you?”—Judges 6:14

In Gideon’s mind, victory over the Midianites was an impossibility, and he was absolutely right! The Midianites, along with their allies, overwhelmed the feeble Hebrews. Yet the moment God told Gideon to fight them, victory was no longer an impossibility!

When Jesus commanded His small group of followers to make disciples of all nations, was that possible (Matt. 28:19)? Certainly, if Jesus said it was! When Jesus told His disciples to love their enemies, was He being realistic? Of course, because He was the One who would achieve reconciliation through them (2 Cor. 5:19–20).

Do you treat commands like these as implausible? Do you modify God’s word to find an interpretation that seems reasonable to you? Don’t discount what is possible with God (Phil. 4:13). When God gives an assignment, it is no longer an impossibility, but rather it is an absolute certainty.

When God gives you a seemingly impossible task, the only thing preventing it from coming to pass is your disobedience. When God speaks, it can scare you to death! He will lead you to do things that are absolutely impossible in your own strength. But God will grant you victory, step by step, as you obey Him.

How do you respond to assignments that seem impossible? Do you write them off as unattainable? Or do you immediately adjust your life to God’s revelation, watching with anticipation to see how He will accomplish His purposes through your obedience?

God wants to do the impossible through your life. All He requires is your obedience.

God did the impossible through Gideon and so many of His generals in both old and new testaments… Today God wants to do the same with you if you are willing and obedient… Yes the only hindrance in your life is your disobedience but if you say yes… like He did with Abraham, Noah, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, David, the Apostles, Paul and so many even in our time…. Stand in the faith in Christ Jesus, the one who makes impossibility possible…. He will do same with you… only be available, willing and obedient…

Receive the grace for the season in Jesus Name…. the gift of grace “Rhythm and Rest” and “Favour” is locating today in Jesus Name.

Nothing will be impossible for you when your motives are pure and your business (spiritual) pursuits are willingly surrendered to God. Raise your expectations, press into His Presence, and remember that God is able to make all grace abound towards you, that you always having all sufficiency in all things may have an abundance for every good work.

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Fix Your Eyes on God

I am thanking You have done in my life Lord… I am thanking You Lord for Who You are…What You have done Dan Sakari Baba….// Glorious God, Beautiful King, Excellent God we bow before the throne…. We bow before the throne, we worship at Your Feet, we bow before the throne You are Glorious God….

Our Father we thank You we bless Your Holy Name…thank You Jesus for giving me Your Joy, peace… glory alleluia….thank You for answers to prayers…O Lord our God…Hallow be Thy Name…Let Thy Kingdom come and Thy Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven… Glory! Glory!!, Glory!!! Alleluia!!

Beloveth, good morning… how are you doing today? Praise the Name of the Lord Who gave you another reason to be among the living…. Praise the Name of the Lord…. Is our prayer meeting day and our God will surely walk in the midst of His people and show forth His Praise… Glory be to Him Alone Who is worthy to be Praise Alleluia!!!!!!!!!!

Today, we will be considering the Gift of Grace- Rhythm and Rest… and another one tomorrow by God’s grace.

Before then, have you been able to identify on which work /walk realm you are – grace or grind?… as we said earlier we will be considering one of the gift of grace today- Rhythm and Rest.

If you are tried and worn out, it means that you are working in your strength verse allowing God’s strength to be made perfect in your weakness in your business. Jesus provides you with this offer—Keep company with Him through your life and work/walk, and He will be your teacher and show you how to work from rest in an unforced rhythm of grace.

Rhythm comes from the Greek word rhythmos that means measured flow or movement. If the rhythm is unforced this simply means it is not forced or imposed, but rather it is a natural flow… and since this is God’s grace we are talking about, it is a supernatural flow! In short, when you keep company (abide) with Jesus, He will teach you how to flow supernaturally in your business and other works of life. That’s one of the beautiful gifts of grace!

If keeping company, or abiding, with Jesus is the prerequisite for learning how to flow supernaturally in your business or in other works of life, the next question should be “How do I keep company and abide with Jesus?”

The answer lies in intimacy with. It’s keeping a line of two-way conversation going, allowing Him to speak to you through His Word and by Holy Spirit. the answer also lies in working from His rest. Rest is an ongoing awareness of the presence of an unchanging and all powerful God in your life. it is not something that you have to strive for; it is simply something that you realize and awaken to.

Rest resides on the inside of you because you are one with Christ and there is no distance between you!

Working by grace helps you avoid making an idol out of hard work and mistaking your identity as being in your work or achievements verse in Jesus Christ. When you work in His rest and partner with His flow, you won’t allow grinding to make you miss out on God ideas, inspired thoughts, divine downloads, warnings, and course corrections which are all gifts of God’s empowering grace.

Beloveth, I believe you are blessed… yes I am blessed. There is much more to gain being under God’s grace… you operate in His strength than in your limited strength… more than strength, you operate in God’s insight, ideas, thoughts, divine downloads, warning and course correction …what an awesome gift beloveth… Our God is Awesome…. Praise the living Jesus… Alleluia!!!

Beloveth… when you are operating under God’s grace…simply put… you are Fixing your eyes on God… because there lies your hope and future….when you fixed your eyes on God you will never miss what God is doing at each season… You will be so sensitive to what the Spirit of God is saying… how do you fix your eyes solely on God in the midst of chaos and confusion all around… prayer…. prayer… prayer…

When you make prayer your lifeline… you will be in tune with the happenings around you… the Holy Spirit make things happen the way you never give a thought about and that set you apart from the rest…

So the place of prayer cannot be overemphasis in the life of a child of God… pray and never faint- Lk 18:1

In our reading below Moses miss out when he allowed what the children of Israelite were doing to distracted him… He also missed his leadership to the promised land just because of that… he worked in his own strength other than depending on God’s strength for the assignment God gave him… go back to the first teaching we did on this topic on Monday… you don’t have to strive endlessly to make things happen with the dream God placed on your heart…in Moses case, in his hands…

Come along for more:

Moses and Aaron summoned the assembly in front of the rock, and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels! Must we bring water out of this rock for you?”—Numbers 20:10

It is easy to see why Moses became frustrated with the Hebrew. They were so hard-hearted and weak in their faith that Moses lost his patience and became angry with them. Yet every time Moses shifted his focus away from God, it cost him. When he sought to help his people by taking matters into his own hands, he spent the next forty years herding sheep in the wilderness (Exod. 2:11–15).

This time his impetuous behavior cost him the opportunity to enter the Promised Land (Num. 20:12). In his frustration at the peoples’ irreverence, Moses committed the very same sin, blatantly disobeying God’s instructions. How did this happen? Moses allowed his attention to shift to the behavior of others rather than focusing on the activity of God.

This could happen to you as well. God has put people around you who need your ministry to them. You will never be able to properly help them, however, unless your primary focus is on God. If you concentrate on people, their weaknesses, their disobedience, their lack of faith, and their stubbornness will quickly frustrate you. You may, like Moses, commit the very sins you are condemning.

If, however, your eyes are fixed on holy God, you will become more like Him—gracious, forgiving, long-suffering, and righteous. When a friend’s behavior disappoints you, go immediately to the Lord. Seek to discern what God is wanting to do in your friend’s life rather than concentrating on your friend’s sin. Then you will have the strength, wisdom, and patience you need to help your friend in the way God desires.

May we not fall into the same temptation… Let us key into God’s grace available for the season and abide steadily in His Presence and plan.

Beloveth, you cannot serve God well with the presence of His grace.. I had an experience recently that God grace helped me out… I will have took a dangerous decision on the person concerned but God’s grace help me to overlook and did what I should do for the person in spite of his behaviour… I stand for God… and show love against hate… so when I came across this message… I was fixed… beloveth don’t allow anyone to take out from the plan and presence of God… ask the Holy Spirit to help you always in difficult situation, it works…

Pray for Divine assistant as you embark on any given assignment… Remember “grace’ does it all … pray for it’s abundance according to God’s Word… Amen (2 Cor 9:8).

Our gracious Father, equip us more than ever before to live righteously before you and before me… help us to stand for what you stand for in Jesus Name…enable us to look beyond the happenings around us and fix our eye on You Alone in Jesus Name…

Beloveth, pray for abounding grace…

Let the living water flow over my soul… Let the Holy Spirit come and take control of every situation that troubles my heart… All my cares and burdens unto Thee I come….

And Paul said to Timothy… “Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God has gives you in Christ Jesus.”

And today we say the same Word to you… “Be Strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” …amen!!!!!!!!!! Somebody!!!!!!!!!!

Beloveth are you working/walking in Grace or in Grind?  We spoke about grace yesterday… today we are going to look at “Grind”…

Grinding is such a prevalent way of doing business that it may not even be clear to you when you are relying solely upon your own strength. Let’s explore some of the signs that you may be working by grind.

Financial Anxiety- you are feeling desperate about money or your thoughts are constantly consumed by how much money you are making (or not making) in your business.

Prayerlessness: Your prayers are infrequent or rushed and you are missing an essential fuel for your faith.

Lack of Sleep: a more obvious sign is lack of sleep due to stress, but a less obvious is when you are sleeping because you are excited about the work that you do and simply wont stop working or you are constantly dissatisfied with the amount of time available to work.

Analysis Paralysis: You may feel confused and overwhelmed and unable to move forward in your business due to frequent over-thinking and continuous analyzing.

No Boundaries: You make yourself available to your clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and keep your smartphone close at all times. You may even have fears that your ability to be successful in business is threatened by the time you need to spend with your loved ones.

No Joy or Peace: You are tired, worn out, agitated and carrying the stress of everyday ups and downs of your business… Are you working by grind?

Beloveth when I came across this write up at first, I was like ehhh at last God is showing me myself in the mirror…. Almost everything written here characterized my life except sleeplessness and prayerlessness…God has been faithful to me on these aspects…upholding Ps 127:2b, and my prayer life has been a place of sccour for me… I told myself you need to change… this month of Divine Mercy and Grace must not be in vain in your life…

Peradventure your life is characterize by most if not all that was listed above, take out time to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you, beloveth we don’t have it all together sometimes we miss it and it is the work of the Holy Spirit to help us if we can come to Him for help…. when we miss our way, and humble ourselves before God, He will surely help us…

The disciples of Jesus at most crucial part of Jesus ministry were sleeping instead of praying… they were weak in their spirit mind… because they were operating in their strength not under grace… (still remember what grace is about)?

We cannot please God by our strength as you can see in the lives of the disciples even in your life…but when you operate under “grace”- God’s strength you accomplish much more… 2 Cor 9:8.

Don’t misunderstand the place of grace … Grace is not a license or a liberty to be lazy or indulgence in negative vices but when you operate under Grace, work is exciting, pain is handle with cheerfulness, bitterness is far off… offense has no impart to your responses or act …

Beloveth, don’t take this season with levity… go to God constantly and seek His face in all you engages in… when you do that, the Holy Spirit takes over your cares, doubt and worries and give you lasting peace… by making all grace abound unto you unto every good works…

The same disciples that were not in tune with what the Spirit of God was doing when they were in-due with the power of the Holy Spirit did exploits for God’s kingdom… beloveth may the grace of God abound for you and I in Jesus Name…..

Come along with us for more:

“Stay awake and pray so that you won’t enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”—Mark 14:38

At times your spirit must demand supremacy over your flesh. Your spirit will know what your Lord wants you to do, but your flesh will cry out for its own fulfillment. There are times when sleep must be denied, even when you are exhausted, because it would be disastrous for you to rest at such a time. When the Lord commands you to “watch and pray,” it is crucial that you obey.

As Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, He knew that the pinnacle of His ministry was quickly approaching. He was aware that the legions of hell were marshaling their forces to defeat Him. If there were ever a critical time for His closest friends to be undergirding Him in prayer, this was it.

Jesus told them that He was deeply distressed, even to the point of death. Surely they could have sensed the intensity in His voice and the urgency of His demeanor, and surely they could have found the strength to obey His request. Yet He found them asleep. No excuses. They had fallen asleep at the most pivotal moment in human history, not once but three times!

Jesus asks you to join Him in what He is doing. He may ask you to watch and pray for an hour. You may have to deny your physical needs and desires in order to pray with Him. You may have to leave the comfort of your bed or your home. You may even have to sacrifice your safety in order to be where Jesus is.

Seek to bring every physical desire under the control of the Holy Spirit so that nothing will impede your accomplishing what Jesus asks of you.

Beloveth… did you get it…the flesh must be put under subjection to be able to do the Mind of Christ in our individual lives… so many of the people of old miss it and it cost them great promises of God… we must also be careful lest we walk in the same path…

Each time you see the sign of ‘Grinding’ in your life…beloveth run to the feet of Jesus and rest on His promises… Amen!!! Spirit of the Living God make all grace abound unto us according to God’s Word in Jesus Name….

Facing Failure

Good morning Jesus, Good morning Lord…I know You come from heaven above…the Holy Spirit is on the Throne…Good morning Jesus, Good morning Lord…// I will exalt You Lord for Thou has lifted me above my enemies, Your banner over is love… I will exalt You Jesus!

Our Father in heaven, we thank You we bless Your Holy Name… Thank You Jesus for the gift of a brand new day… Thank You for miracles that You wrought daily in our lives…glory be to Your Holy Name… Thank You for Safety, Provision and Protection…who can be compared with thee… in heaven You are God…on earth You remaineth the same…below the earth…You reigneth forever more…. Alleluia to Your Holy Name in Jesus Name….

Thank You Father for the gift of a brand week…design by You to bless us, Your children…we humbly come before You… have Your way again Father, keep us under Your Wing, lead us in the path of righteousness… let Your Name be glorify in Jesus Name Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!

Beloveth, good morning…how was your weekend?… Hope you are good… all glory be to God.

Beloveth…is another brand new week and God is set to do us good… and we will partake of it in Jesus Name.

We will take time to discuss about the place of grace in our individual life by God’s grace this week and I believe you will be bless and glad to chose Christ above all…

In the world today…grace is the empowerment you need to succeed both spiritual and in the secular…

Beloveth you don’t have to strive endlessly to make things happen with the dream God placed on your heart for your business. You simply need God’s empowering Presence and everything else is going to flow from there.

Grace is that empowerment. It enables you to successfully do what God has called you to do and to do what you could never do on your own. It is by God’s grace that you are able to do extraordinary things, have supernatural results and eternal impact through your business and spiritual life.

You are not only saved, forgiven, and transformed by grace, but you are also sustained by it. I like how the gospel of John speaks about grace. In John 1:16 refers to “grace upon grace” which is a constant and overflowing gift out of the abundance of Christ that we have received to live and to work. This gift of grace belongs to you and provides you with rest, divine favour, and so much more.

Instead of having strenuous labor (grind), you can rest in the empowering presence of God (grace) as you labour (work) so that you are positioned for His supernatural ability which causes you to birth the ideas on your heart in a way that brings you extraordinary success, astonishes others and give glory to Him.

Beloveth, God’s grace is made available…first to the disciple and today us…stop laboring without results rest in the hand of God and see you birth in the supernatural ….

come along with us more:

Then Jesus said to them, “All of you will run away, because it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.”—Mark 14:27

As you follow Jesus you will face moments of great distress. At times it will seem that events conspire to cause you to stumble in your relationship with Him. You do not initiate them, but they arise from opposition or the intensity of your circumstances. Nevertheless, failure is the end result. The disciples faced such fierce opposition to their Lord that they all failed Him on the night Jesus was crucified.

Peter boasted that he was incapable of forsaking Jesus (Mark 14:29–31). Yet Jesus assured the disciples even before their failure that it was inevitable. The Scriptures had prophesied it. God always knew the disciples would fail His Son; He wasn’t caught by surprise.

He had made provision for their shortcomings, knowing He would eventually develop them into apostles who would fearlessly preach the gospel, perform miracles, and teach others. Later, when the risen Christ encountered Peter on the seashore, He did not ask Peter for a confession of his sin, but a confession of his love (John 21:15–17).

You may fear that your failure has caught God by surprise. Perhaps you promised, like Peter, to stand with the Lord, but you failed. God was just as aware that you would fail Him as He was with the original disciples. He has made provision to respond every time you stumble.

Don’t think that somehow your failures are bigger or more complex than any God has dealt with. If you are facing challenges that seem overwhelming, don’t be discouraged. God has already foreseen them and prepared for them (1 Cor. 10:13).

Beloveth, is a brand new season ordered by God to restore you back to the original plan from the foundation of the world… Hope you are ready to abide.. He has commanded us to “Go and possess our possession” are you ready?

If you then get up from your failure… Jesus is not interested where you have fail because He knew about it but He is interested in what you are becoming….as you can see with His encounter with Peter… stop looking back….press forward… move forward and as you the God of great wonders will work on your behalf and restore all that you have lost hitherto in Jesus Name….

Beloveth, there is grace in house, get up and get going now, you are walking in the Supernatural and the God of Supernatural Breakthroughs through the workings of Divine Mercy and Grace is where restoring you back to His original intention in Jesus Name… you are a success no longer a failure in Jesus Name…. He has chosen to do you good, align yourself in His workings in Jesus Name….

On this note dearly beloveth… we declare this week open and by God’s grace we return at the end with greater testimonies in Jesus Name…

That You May Marvel

Hosanna! Blessed be Lord, honour to the Lord…let the rock of my salvation be exalted…

Our Father, we thank You, we glorify Your Holy Name… Thank You for the gift of this week…You were everywhere doing wonders alleluia!!! Thank You Matchless Jesus for the Great and Might things You are doing in our life…Great are You Lord… You are greatly to be Praise…Father You reign… Praise the Living Jesus!!! Alleluia!!!

I feel like dancing….. I feel like shouting…. I feel like clapping… I feel like jumping………….praise the Lord alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you why because God has been gracious to me…. I cannot not say it all….

Beloveth, is TGIF….”Today God Is First”….Is our PCL…. Praise the Lord somebody!!!!!!!!!! Our God is good… all the time.. All the time the Lord is good… What a Wonderful God we serve… His Faithfulness is ever sure and His Compassion faileth not… Praise the Lord…

Beloveth, this is the secret behind my pitching my tent on the Solid Rock (Jesus)… “There is no turning of shadow with Him…” “He Changeth not and He faileth not…” Praise the Name of the Lord..

Beloveth, the grace to be everything has created you to be receive in Jesus Name…. Wow! the topic we are about to consider spoke about how Jesus work in line with His Father… according to Him, He does only what He see His Father doing…even as a Son of God, He does not assumed His work rather He work as He see His Father works… likewise beloveth, we must seek the face of God in our work at Home, in the Office, Ministry, during Evangelizing and more…

Beloveth, “Go up and possess your mountain” must be in line with what God can bless… no covetousness… no bitterness, no hate, no bickering… may God give us understanding in Jesus Name…

Let us always imitate Jesus Who works according to what He see His Father doing…when we do just that you see yourself succeeding in every facets of life….Amen!!!

Then Jesus replied, “I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things in the same way.

For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing, and He will show Him greater works than these so that you will be amazed.”—John 5:19–20

Jesus, realizing that His role was that of a servant, never sought to initiate activity for the Father (Matt. 20:28). The servant never sets the agenda—the master does. The servant must be so alert to what the master is doing that whenever the master begins to move in a direction the servant quickly joins him.

Even the Son of God did not assume He knew the best thing to do in a situation. Instead, He looked to see the Father’s activity and then joined Him. Jesus knew His Father so well that He was keenly sensitive to divine activity around Him, immediately recognizing His Father at work.

It is possible for us to be so busy trying to bring God into our activity that we don’t even notice Him at work around us. He seeks to redirect our attention so that we might join Him, but we tend to be self-centered, evaluating everything by how it affects us. We must learn to view events around us from God’s perspective. Then we will see our world very differently.

When God brings someone across our path, we will look to see if God is convicting that person of his need for salvation. Perhaps God is comforting someone in her sorrow. God might be encouraging your friend as she faces a challenge. We will then adjust our lives to join God as He works in that person’s life.

We ought to live each day with tremendous anticipation as we look to see where God is working around us. As our eyes are opened to His activity, we will marvel at His great works.

Beloveth…let us ask God to lead to His Will for us… “Let the Will of God lead us where His Grace will keep us… in Jesus Name… Amen..

Beloveth, this month will mark the end of toiling in your life in Jesus Name… You it no more…when you labour beloveth….your Hand will experience increase in Jesus Name… You start operating in abundance in Jesus Name… An end to every activity that yields no result in your life in Jesus Name…. because we will imitate Jesus …going only where God has initiated His activities in Jesus Name…(Rom  12:2)

Have a glorious weekend…see you again on Monday by His grace… carefully consider what God is doing around you and join Him in the process…

Come on let conclude our song….

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy…

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Your Lord Precedes You

I am thank You Lord for Who You are what You have done in my life Lord…I am thanking You Lord for Who You are … What You have done Dan Sakari Baba… // Holy Most Holy is the Lord God…is the Lord God…is the Lord God!!!… Holy, Most Holy is the Lord God… Is the Lord God, is the Lord God….Holy, Most Holy, is the Lord God…is the Lord God Most High….

Our Father we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name.. We adore Thee we give You Praise. .adoration to Your Holy Name….thank You for the gift of another day…Father we are grateful…we give Praise unto Your Holy Name… Thank You for making me part of Your plan Father…alleluia to Your Holy Name in Jesus Name…Amen.

Beloveth good morning…our faith clinic is here again…are you happy? Yes with faith they claimed the promises made to them by God…we also though faith we claim ours in Jesus Name…

We come to the Living water this day to drink from it fountain and by faith we drink life and peace in Jesus Name, Amen…

Beloveth we serve a Living God Who walks in the affairs of men..Who answers prayers, Who delivers the Oppressed, the Sick in the body and in the mind… Our God is here again to do that which only Him can do in our midst… let us listen and pay attention to what He has to say unto us today….

Beloveth, are you born of God? The Word of God says “Whosoever is born of God overcometh the world” (1 Jn 5:4)… The question again “Are you of God? Then if you answer is yes! Then you are an Overcomer… Praise the Living Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!

In our teaching today, we will be looking at the infallible Word God…When God says a Word…He goes ahead to bring it to pass…we see our God capable of doing all things, not wanting in any form…He is an Able God…He is Sovereign too…. What an Excellent we serve…

Before Jesus was crucified, He told His disciple what is going to happen after he resurrects from death.…He said “I will go ahead of you to Galilee… this is a sure promise that He will raise again… the disciples were so disoriented that they did not get what He was saying to them… instead of going to Galilee they locked themselves up, afraid of what will become of them now that their Saviour/Leader has been crucified by the same people He walked in their midst doing various miracles… if they will do that Jesus, I guess they will saying to themselves “who are we to them…”

Jesus arose on the third day as promised and went ahead to Galilee as He had promised…but guessed what… His disciple is yet to set out… It took Jesus to send another disciples of His to them to come over to Galilee that He is waiting…

O my God…beloveth how many times have we failed to understand the Mind of Christ on a matter we have with Him… How often we sit in our failure even when He said to us “I am here to help you.” how many times have we fail to see what Jesus is doing in our midst just because of unbelief…

Jesus assuring Word about His resurrection is the Word in our text today… but they did not get it altogether… they were mourning the Living Messiah Who has gone ahead of them to the meeting place… today beloveth where are you at the moment you are reading this pieces… are still at your failure arena or have gone ahead to another assignment or you are still sucking and complaining all over what happened even when Jesus had reassured you that He is with always…

Do you know the end of one journey means the beginning of another… beloveth… the Lord is telling you to “go up and possess your possession…go up and get going on that business, Job, admission, ministry, marriage, and all the likes that you want to embark on… He is there already waiting for you… enough of murmuring and complaining Jesus is waiting for you… all you need do is to get up and get going…ask Him the way..He pivot your way and you will smile again… this month of grace and mercy will do you good not evil in Jesus Name.

Beloveth you shall rejoice and shout for joy… Laughter will be known in your camp again… because the Lord will bring it to pass as He makes His grace and mercy available to you at a sufficient level in Jesus Name…

Come along with us for more:

“But after I have been resurrected, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.”—Mark 14:28

God never sends you into a situation alone. He always goes before His children, as He did with the children of Israel when He led them with a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. You do not serve as His advance troops in a foreign and hostile situation. He always precedes you in any situation you encounter.

God is never caught by surprise by your experience; He has already been there. He is prepared to meet every need because He has gone before you and knows exactly what you will need for your pilgrimage (Deut. 31:8).

Not only does God go before you, but He also stands beside you and behind you, to provide protection and comfort (Ps. 139:7–12).

Jesus knew His disciples would be totally bewildered by His crucifixion, so He assured them in advance that no matter what happened, no matter where they went, they could go in confidence that He had already gone before them. Paul, too, experienced this assurance (Acts 18:9; 23:11). In the most bewildering circumstances, his Lord was there!

If you are going through a difficult or confusing time, know that your Lord has gone before you and He is present with you. He is fully aware of what you are facing, and He is actively responding to your need. There is nowhere you can go that you will not find Christ waiting for you to join Him.

Even when you face death, you can be assured that He has gone before you in triumph. As a child of God, rest in the knowledge that your Savior preceded you, and He will walk with you through each experience of your life.

Are encouraged dearly beloved… are encouraged that Jesus precede you on every matter…that Jesus is with you always too…

Any where you are hurting right now…receive the Balm of Gilead… to smoothen your heart and saturate that pains now in Jesus Name…

Hold on the His promise…He will never you nor forsake you… He is more than able to do what we think of Him, He will show Himself Mightily in Jesus Name…Amen…..

God Brings You to Himself

Father we declare that we love You…we declare an everlasting love for you…Father we declare that we love You we declare an everlasting love for You…// You are the Lord that healeth me…You are the Lord my Saviour…You sent Your and You heal me disease… You are the Lord my healer….

Our Father we worship You…We give You Praise! We adored Thee… We worship You… We glorify You Lord! be Thou exalted now and forever more… Thank You for the gift of another day in Your Presence Lord… Thank You for the great and Mighty things You are doing in our midst… We Praise, We worship Thee…be Thou exalted in Jesus Name… Amen!!!

Beloveth…how are today? Hope you are doing good? Praise the Lord… May the grace of God be upon you now and forever more… and His goodness and mercy locate you today as you pray in Jesus Name….. Amen!!!

Our God is bringing you to Himself today…shout a believing alleluia!!!… our God is carrying you on eagles wings today beloveth shout a thunderous alleluia!!!!!!!

If you believe beloveth; you shall see it …. “Whoever comes to God must believe that He is … do you believe He is? Without believing is difficult to see the goodness of God in the land of Living alleluia, someone….amen!!!!!!!!!!!!

God’s intervention in your life is to bring you to Himself… in worship… are you ready to worship Him today?… This is our praying session… and am sure the Lord Himself is here to show forth Mightily in our midst… just believe and you will see His glory alleluia…

Beloveth… God desires you to set out time that will just be for “Him and you.” If you read the account of Israelite, when Moses went to pharaoh to seek him to release the people of Israelite so that they will go and hold feast unto their God in the wilderness…(Exo 5:1) but instead of obeying God, pharaoh double their task… you can imagine how the children of Israelite would have felt… They accused Moses that he wants to kill them (read our message on comfortable in bondage).

God had His way and delivered His people having destroyed Pharaoh and his war-lords…

Beloveth that God is still alive… He is still God and will do that which only Him can do… but you must worship Him, the Only True God… ”

Beloveth… “Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain that builds it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain…(Ps 127:1). God brought up to worship Him…don’t allow anything not your life, family, work to come between you and Him… else He will fight…

So as you come Him today…ask God to open your eyes on those things that has taken His place in your heart…ask Him for the grace to set them aside no matter the cost…to chose Him above all… The grace to do this is release unto you now…receive it in Jesus Name… beloveth nothing must take the place of God in your life  else like He fought pharaoh, He will fight to free you from such bondage.

So ask God to help you… change your perceptive towards life and look steadily on Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith…

Come along for more:

You have seen what I did to the Egyptians and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Me.—Exodus 19:4

God did not deliver the children of Israel out of Egypt so that they could enjoy the Promised Land. He freed them from their bondage so they could come to know and worship Him. Three months after they left Egypt, God reminded His people why He had delivered them “on eagles’ wings.” It was to bring the people to Himself. That is, God saved them so that they could enjoy intimate fellowship with Him.

The Israelites had been slaves with no freedom to worship God. Now, with their own land, they could come to know and serve God freely. God’s call was not to destroy the idolatrous nations in Canaan, not to settle the lands they conquered, and not to establish a new nation, although all of these would be accomplished.

Rather, God called them primarily to be a people who loved and worshiped Him. Through God’s act of deliverance they came to know Him as an almighty and compassionate God, and they were now free to respond to Him.

We are so activity oriented that we assume we were saved for a task we are to perform rather than for a relationship to enjoy. God uses our activities and circumstances to bring us to Himself. When He gives us a God-sized assignment, its sheer impossibility brings us back to Him for His enabling. When God allows us to go through crises, it brings us closer to Him.

If we are not careful, we can inadvertently bypass the relationship in order to get on with the activity. When you are busy in your activity for God, remember that God leads you to the experiences in order to bring you to Himself.

Are you consumed in activity beloveth… God said is in vain you build… He is the builder of all things… can you start seeing things in God’s eye… He only bless what He initiated… so follow Him…where you are confused, ask for His guidance and it shall be given to you… also ask in faith (Jas 1:5-8, Ps 127).

Pray expectantly…pray earnestly… The God of all Grace will answer you in Jesus Name…

Our Father we come before You; help us to pray… Help us not to faint in the place of prayer… make our hands strong and receive us as sweet savors in Jesus Name… Ezek.20 :41

Further reading- Jas 1:5-8.

Brethren let us pray.

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Success without God

Our Father in heaven we glorify Your Name…We bow down before Thee x2// Glorious God…Beautiful King…Excellent God we bow before the throne…Glorious God!!! x2 We bow before the throne, we worship at Your feet..we bow before the throne You are glorious God…

Our Father we thank You we bless Your Name..we adore and glorify Your Name…Father in heaven O God..who is like unto Thee, in heaven you are God…on earth You remaineth the same… Father we lift Your Name higher, we bow in worship at Your feet, receive our Praise, our worship let it be a sweet smelling sacrifice unto Thee in Jesus Name…

Beloveth good morning… how are you doing today?… Glory be to God in the highest.. be Thou exalted again and again in Jesus Name…

Beloveth are you ready to go and take that mountain as we have been instructed? Yes before you go… we bring to you an important information that will help you as you journey along the way…

Beloveth let us learn from Moses when he was told to the land of promise. at first God refuse go with them because of their stiff-necked… Moses pleaded to God that His Presence to go with them or how else will it be known that they are His people if His Presence go not without them… He said “… carry us not up hence.”(Exo 33:15).

And God said I will do ask Thou has spoken: for Thou has found grace in my sight, and I know Thee by Name….I will make all my goodness pass before Thee; and be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy (Vs 37-19)

Beloveth …two things to take away from here is first – To ensure that God’s Presence is/go with us in all our undertaking…by ensuring that whatever we are doing is what God will bless… secondly we must position ourselves to find grace and mercy of God as we embark on quest…

Beloveth… This is our month of Divine Grace and Mercy… and here God is saying that you have found grace before Him and He will show mercy on whom He chose to show mercy upon…. Beloveth…. If God have promised grace and mercy….what are waiting for…. Ask for His Presence to go with… and as His presence goes with you…success is yours… you will move forward …no power will able to withstand you because the  Presence of God is with you…

Make no mistake beloveth…every success does not depicts God’s Presence as you will later read below… However, when God goes before you to any venture, your success is sure/guaranteed…

Come along with us to see God’s kind of success:

“If Your presence does not go,” Moses responded to Him, “don’t make us go up from here.”—Exodus 33:15

It is possible to experience success and yet be void of God’s presence. If success is what is important to you, you may be tempted to choose accomplishments over your relationship with God. God offered to send an angel with the Israelites as they entered the Promised Land to ensure their success in every venture. No army could withstand them. No city wall could stop them. The wealth of the land lay before them.

Everything they had ever dreamed of appeared to be theirs for the taking. The only thing missing would be the presence of God. God said they were an obstinate people, and He would not go with them when their hearts were far from Him.

The Israelites’ experience reveals that victory and great accomplishments are not necessarily a sign of God’s presence. Do not assume that your good health, your profitable business, or the growth of your ministry is due to the presence of God. It may be that you have inadvertently chosen success over your walk with the Lord.

Moses wisely concluded that success, no matter how great, is not a substitute for fellowship with God. Moses knew how quickly worldly achievements could disappear. His security came from his relationship with God.

Success in the world’s eyes is not a sign of God’s blessing. It may, in fact, indicate that you have chosen a substitute for intimate fellowship with God.

Would you be satisfied to have success, power, and wealth, but not a relationship with God? Do you value God’s presence in your life more than the greatest achievements you could experience in the world?

Beloveth…. Your relationship with God means more to God than any success you are fronting before Him… let us learn to be closer to God…to have intimate relationship with God than the offering of sheep and goat and gold and silver you offer Him as sacrifice…. May God help us as we journey through the land in Jesus Name…

We have learnt that God’s gift comes with battles and wars… we also have seen that God trains our hands for battles and wars. Now we need His backing as we go to our promised land… hold fast your confession in Christ…  God in His sovereignty will send forth His grace and mercy to see you through….

The Lord promises is yeah and Amen!!! Has said it He will also do it… He promised that His Goodness will pass before Thee.. He will be gracious unto Thee and show you mercy…

Father, we bow before Thee and seek Your Presence this day in all You will lay in our hearts to do…. Keep us in Your Grace and Mercy in Jesus Name…. For You are alone are worthy of our praises in Jesus Name….
