God will provide the winning strategy

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(JUNE 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 1)

GOD WILL NEVER COMPROMISE YOU- The Price that was paid for this love is so expensive that it cannot be bought. That is why Salvation is now free to those who desire for it. Likewise, the cost of our liberation led to the distribution of Free Gifts as seen fit by the Distributor Himself, Christ through the Holy Spirit. That though varied, collectively each gift should be utilized accordingly for the building up of His Church.
So purpose to guard your gifts and calling from pollution, contamination or compromise being accountable to the Love Christ paid costly for us

Purpose to preserve and protect the temple of God; your body this month. Some may argue that this is America and it’s a different culture. Or times have changed. But let’s be reminded that Jesus Christ never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. God is Omnipresent. He has no geographical barriers, so is the Holy Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 4: 4-Each of you should know how to possess our own vessels in sanctification and honor

If single, persevere in waiting, do not give in to short-term gratification this week. The Lord sees all, the intents of everyone’s heart and thoughts, also the end from the beginning. Your God appointed wife or husband is on the way.

Stay away from intimacy with any married woman or man. Marriage is ordained by God. On the last day, the saints will judge everyone else, BUT ALDUTERERS & FORNICATORS GOD HIMSELF WILL JUDGE (Hebrews 13:4, 1 Corinthians 6 :9)

Resist peer pressure by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Do not go with flow, fad or culture. Worse yet resist strongly “1) everybody is doing it 2) This is America! On the judgement day, each of you will be judged individually. We reap, what we sow, more than we sowed and later than we sowed, Dr. Charles Stanley. This principle applies whether we sow Good or Bad

Do not compromise this this valentine’s month or any other day. To those Christ has saved, He also gave Power to become sons and daughters of God. YOU HAVE POWER, the Holy Spirit. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfil the desires of the flesh (Galatians 5:16), Submit to God (Love), resist the devil and He will flee from you. DRAW NEAR TO GOD & HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU (James 4:7-8)
PRAYER-RECEIVE & EMBRANCE GOD’S LOVE THIS WEEK. Say this out loud, as loud as you can. “God I love you, I receive your love. Now put your hand on your heart/chest and Repeat this 7 times, “God I know you love me. Now say the following countless times “God loves me, God loves me, God Loves me, God loves me, God, loves me, God loves me, God loves me, God loves me, God loves me, God loves me, God loves me, God loves me, no more compromise. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Be A Spy

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(APRIL 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 3)

BE A SPY -In reflection, I noticed that I may have avoided a lot of negative outcomes and or choices if I had only gathered the facts before I ventured into some stuff. Have you wandered, why although Joshua and Caleb had full access of God’s protective power and glory; they still sent spies to scout the territories(lands) they were about to possess? (Joshua 6:1-27) But they spied for God ordained reasons and here is how they went about them:
Spy by receiving instructions from God- You need to be well informed before you venture in! God already showed Moses and Joshua the land they were to occupy and even the statue of their opponents or occupants of the land.
Spy by researching where you are going, what you want to venture into and to study your opponents. Since they were treading on new territories, they sent spies scout the lands. Why, I am thinking to determine whether it is worth the fight, see what they could benefit from the land, (what is there to gain in this land) to know the opponent’s power and strategies and whether this is for short term gain or long-term or generational gain.
Spy by seeking counsel from trusted people around you. You will know these people by the revelation of the Holy Spirit and by their fruits (Character, attitude and lifestyle). Plans fail for lack of counsel (Proverbs 15:22), but in the company of many counselors there is safety (Proverbs 11:14)
Prayer- Seriously, they asked God “should we go after these guys? 1 Chronicles 14.14-David inquired again of God,) and God said to him, ” When God said ok, go ahead the Israelites prevailed, when they disobeyed, their opponents defeated them, WHEN THEY PARTIALLY OBEYED, (Like the Ai incident in Joshua 7:2-5) the Israelites lived with long term consequences of their disobedience.
Wait for God to Give you the strategy- 1 Chronicles 14.14You shall not go up after them; circle around behind them and come at them in front of the balsam trees. And likewise for Joshua, God provided the strategy to tumble Jericho.
As an informed believer, now you have strategies and know who and what you are dealing with. This also includes being strategic in prayer. We can avoid pitfalls and repeated cycles of defeat. If venturing into a new business, marriage, career, house, name it, spy using the examples above and acquire information to make the right choices. After one victorious outcome, you will gain faith and are ready to take on the next venture! “Bring it on! Bring it on! This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (1 John 5:14) Do not just take risks; take calculated God ordained risks. They always produce very fruitful outcomes. No more Christian causalities! Do your part, do your homework, be a spy. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Covered we are permanently insured

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(APRIL 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 2)

COVERED! WE ARE PERMANENTLY INSURED-Nothing can separate us from the Love of God. As believers, this is the ultimate insurance we have in Christ Jesus! So, what do you think? Romans 8:31-39 (Please read these verses in the Message Version). We are covered because:

Insured by Gods permanent, inseparable, unceasing, unconditional and everlasting love for us.

  • We have coverage of His define protection by God declaring that nothing whether above or on earth, angelic or demonic can separate us from Him. This is our Father’s protective love. Hence the reinforcement that no weapon formed against us shall prevail against us.
  • Insured and assured of God’s divine provision -A Father’s love that provides for His children, us. In fact, Jesus asks, what kind of father would give his children stones when they ask for bread. Hence ask and it shall be given, moreover, do not be anxious for anything but with prayer, supplication with thanksgiving make our requests known to Him… and the Lord shall supply all— (oh I am getting too excited writing this! About to shout and jump!)
  • We are covered because – we are enriched in every way; we are partakers of His divine nature. We rule and reign with Him. God withholds no good thing from us, instead He generously shares. He shared Christ. After Christ God now shares the Holy Spirit with us, we are not left without this Wonderful Company.

I was so encouraged by the revelation of these verses Romans 8:31-39 this morning! Thank you Holy Spirit. This is the love that surpasses human understanding. God’s love results in peace, joy. It is the ONLY LOVE THAT COMPLETES! AND NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM THIS LOVE! So this week, let’s keep our heads way up, walk with an attitude. We are fully covered, saved, healed, delivered, restored, protected, forgiven, preserved…CHRIST ALREADY PAID THE DEDUCTABLE! COVERE…. D & FULLY INSURED! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Its Ok to ask God for more

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(APRIL 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 1)

IT’S OK TO ASK GOD FOR MORE-2 Kings 13:18-19 Then he (Elisha) said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped. 19 And the man of God was angry with him, and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.”
Our God is such a caring God and it is true He wants to endow us with more. This is the fullness of God in all things we should proper; in the natural being and the spiritual being. But I think we “BELIEVERS have fallen short in BELIEVING for more from the Creator of everything. By Him all things were created, whether in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, dominions, principalities or powers; ALL THINGS WERE CREATED THROUGH HIM & FOR HIM (Colossians 1:16). So if we call Him the God of the exceedingly and abundantly (Ephesians 3:20) or the God of cups running over, surely, He can give us more.

  • The key scripture above was my main eye opener. The king was facing war; he went to Prophet Elisha who was critically sick by the It could be that the king stopped because he thought Elisha had additional instructions, it could the king stopped because he only had the faith of 3. It could be the king stopped because he only wanted 3! Or because the king was impatient; he wanted to get his prophesy and keep on moving. Ponder on the following:
    Lack of faith makes you settle for only what you want. Have you ever tried to bless someone and they told oooh no, just give me the 5 dollars, maybe you wanted to give them more! I think that is how we approach God at times
  • Fear is the culprit and this is driven by the spirit of false humility and the religious spirit which have taught believers that God is to far reached He only gives us what we need! This is arguably true, but if He is going to give me what I need, I would still ask for more of it. That’s just Pauline being real with God. My experience so far though, is that whenever I ask for more He gives me more. No kidding I asked for something on my way to church one Sunday evening. I left home at 5:30 pm, returned home at 9 pm with what I had asked God for multiplied 3 times. I even recall making this request while making a turn while driving. I simply said, God it would be nice if I had X and God responded within 4 hours with overflow.
  • It could be that we ask for less because our vision is limited to the extent we can see the vision. Colossians 1:17- He is before all things and in Him all things coexist. In Isaiah 46:10 God sees the end from the beginning. Moreover, His thoughts are not our thoughts neither His ways our ways, so since GOD SEES WAY FAR BEYOND, let is expand our visions too. Remember Elisha got upset with the king because the king only struck 3 times, being a prophet, Elisha had seen the end; utter destruction of the Syrian army. If only the king struck 5 to 6 times.

Now the following really caught my attention, it is highly likely that we will face the consequences of settling for less when we are impatient. Despite His grace and mercy, God also gives us a free will. We may not experience the fullness of what we ask for in the moment. If you read fur her in verse 20, Elisha died shortly after giving the king instructions in verse 20. This is huge, I was greatly challenged by this!

PRAYER-We are in this together! Let us ask for more. Jesus said ask and we will be given, knock and they shall be opened, seek and we will find, so from this week, be specific with God. If asking for a job, ask for salary, bonus, flexibility with schedule, favor with your boss, promotion within 2 years, tuition reimbursement, good co-workers, believers in the workplace (MORE). do the same for your marriage, your children, your family, your career. Even your spiritual walk, ask God for more Joel 2:28-29. God desires that we all prophesy and move in the various gifts of the Holy Spirit. All you have to do is ask. Hey in prayer this week, LET US STRIKE 5 to 6 times! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.
