Trial Of Your Faith

There is a popular adage that says, “When a child is trained with hard labor, he is well trained”.

“The trial of your faith.” – 1Pe_1:7

Faith untried may be true faith, but it is sure to be little faith, and it is likely to stay dwarfish so long as it is without trials. Faith never prospers so well as when all things are against her: tempests are her trainers, and lightning is her illuminators. When a calm reigns on the sea, spread the sails as you will, the ship moves not to its harbor; for on a slumbering ocean the keel sleeps too. Let the winds rush howling forth, and let the waters lift themselves, then, though the vessel may rock, and her deck may be washed with waves, and her mast may creak under the pressure of the full and swelling sail, it is then that she makes headway towards her desired haven. No flowers wear so lovely a blue as those which grow at the foot of the frozen glacier; no stars gleam so brightly as those which glisten in the polar sky; no water tastes so sweet as that which springs amid the desert sand; and no faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs in adversity. Tried faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness had you not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would never have known God’s strength had you not been supported amid the water-floods. Faith increases in solidity, assurance, and intensity, the more it is exercised with tribulation. Faith is precious, and its trial is precious too.

Let not this, however, discourage those who are young in faith. You will have trials enough without seeking them: the full part will be measured out to you in due season. Meanwhile, if you cannot yet claim the result of long experience, thank God for what grace you have; praise him for that degree of holy confidence whereunto you have attained: walk according to that rule, and you shall yet have more and more of the blessing of God, till your faith shall remove mountains and conquer impossibilities.

Prayer

Father we thank you, Jesus Christ we thank you, Holy Spirit we thank you that you have opened our minds to understand why we are tempted and the value of temptation, Lord Jesus give me the grace to continually see your light in all my tempted walks of life. Give me the grace to continually hold on to thy hand; But God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able … 1Co_10:13 (KJV); Dear Lord I thank you that you have me in your daily plan every day. Thank you Holy spirit for talking to me every time, Thank you Jesus Christ for answering my everyday prayers. I Cover myself and my household, with the blood of Jesus and the fire of the holy ghost. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

A Quiet Time – When the Enemy Strikes (God will be Watching)

Dan 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

When God is Quiet, When the Enemy Strikes

It does not mean that when we don’t hear from God then he’s quiet or won’t just speak to us. The Lord has something to say at all times in every situation. All we need to do is pray when things seem good or when things seem bad. Sometimes, good things may lie behind bad counterfeits. The Enemy always strikes when he sees a blessing coming your way in order to try as much as he can to steal, kill & destroy. It is at such times when we see tough situations that our blessings are coming. The tough situation is an attack to try and distract us from focusing on the Goal. And when that happens; we need to even focus the more and pray fervently so that the grace of God may abound on us. It is only the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ that saves us from anything that hurts or affects the purity of the Holy Ghost who is given to us as a comforter. When we do not hear from the Lord, indeed it is a good thing to check ourselves if there is anything we may have done that displeased him. We have to do this by way of prayer and fasting. In so doing, we keep a closer contact with the Lord. If we do this, nothing the Lord says will pass us. We shall always hear him.

Obedience is better than Sacrifice

At times the Enemy will come but, “Psa 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” This means greater protection! The Lord will not allow trouble to destroy us if we keep our focus on his word. If the Lord could use fire to speak, clouds, wind, or water before, then he still can use anything today, even broken pieces are still useful in the Lord’s Hands. Bones lived at Ezekiel’s time, what will stop them today? Nothing. It is prayer that we need to give time & again. Dan 10:14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days. Act 1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. Salvation is Here! The Lord Jesus, Look for him while he may be found.

Prayer

Father we thank thee, Lord Jesus we thank thee, Holy spirit we thank thee. Our sins have separated us from thee Master, punish us not, forgive us, wash us with thy holy & living water from heaven, As filthy as I am, thou canst still cleanse me, cleanse me Lord that I may be spotless before thy presence in Jesus’ name. Separate me from anything that grieves thee my Lord, waylay me with the mighty & precious Blood of Jesus. That I may be in tune with thyne will, Engulf me in thy wings and let me only walk when thou wilt. Teach me again and again, that your voice Lord I may know, that I may not be swayed by the Voice of the enemy when he disguises himself to be as one of thee. Thank you Lord in Jesus’ name.

Aside

Marriage; Motherhood

God is in Support of FamilyWhat a divine assignment. A mother is a role model to her children. She is the perfect picture the children look at for their first steps in life. You can tell by their speech when they play with friends on the streets; mostly, they will quote; “mummy said I can’t do that, mummy said she loves me, mummy bought me a panda! It’s all about mummy this, mummy that. This in the divine context implies that mummies are the role models for their children until a certain age at which they are let go for their own expedition to begin and learn from the worldly experiences after being shown the conjectural part of it by MOTHER.

Sometimes one at the age of 60 years is still caught saying my Mother taught me this. My Mother has been a good friend of mine; what do they mean? They intend to say that they came from a family; they were brought up by their own mother. Mothers are a source of life.

Transformed to Motherhood

Before the very concept of mother should come into being; God had and still has the same meaning from beginning of creation: Family. A mother is one who becomes known as one through the act family with a man who then is respectively called Husband. Family is God’s divine grace in the flesh as to increase his creation through human productivity. Humans are a grace from the Lord Jesus himself though it is clear today most people are lost due to the many things the world has brought before them to complicate their choices and follow unreal tracks of life. It is only through marriage that genuine motherhood is lived; a mother must always have a husband. When today’s instance is given, we have lots of the so-called single mothers! In the first place one did not come to motherhood without experiencing husband in one night or day. This act however has been abused to the love for lust. If one should know or be reminded; these things are intended for family – Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. This tells us that there is a proper way of becoming a mother. God is in support of marriage, he wants each one of us to have a husband/wife; Gen 2:24 – Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Lev 21:14 – note that in this scripture there are some restrictions under which marriage should legally occur. Therefore, since the age we are in is much damaged by the antichrist;  the grace of the Lord Jesus is enough for all to say, whatever uncleanliness there is among the restrictions mentioned that should be void of marriage; the blood of Jesus is still accessible by faith to cleanse all such as mentioned. He is faithful that promised.  He is forgiving. Just as his blood flowed from the cross that day, so does it to those who believe in him today. Take thoughtful meditation and do not think the Lord will reject you when you turn to him asking him to make you a wife/husband: Isa 1:18, Mic 6:2, Eph 1:6, Rom 5:20 – Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: [emphasis mine] it is not by works of righteousness that we have done, it is grace. The grace of the Lord Jesus – we have read this in the scripture.

Mother; if at all these conditions according to the word of the Lord are obeyed, there will be total comeback to the Lord and peace will once again reunite. When we have children in the way of the Lord, they are easy to train, to bring up because the Lord will be in support of such. Trust the Lord’s word; it surely comes to pass as he says.

Work and Family

True and I 100% agree that a woman a mother/wife as at this age must be well involved in the up bring of the family in view of the fact she must contribute to the family by means of work or financial responsibility. Look at it this way; is it not wise to take care of the children in the house until they are of age to have learnt from their mothers to stand alone? MAID/BABY SITTER: it is imperative today that almost each well to do house-hold has one in the house for the care of children not really of house work. Every mother/father has a way of thinking on how their children should be brought up – You know I am right when I say this! Now, here you go and get a maid/baby sitter – someone who has her own way of doing things, quite negative to your own ways/thought of child up-bring. She is here in this house to make a living by taking care of your children, teaching them things you do not know, if the kid has a problem with feeding, she may leave them alone to suffer that since she knows at the end of the month her salary will be paid – this is just an example. There is more to it than this. Think about it. Work can wait if seriously we must have responsible children in the future; I mean those who have husbands. I am speaking in the Lord’s way and not life’s way – I speak of living by faith and not by sight! Children are a blessing and therefore, should be natured with LOVE! The Love that you wish would have been given to you if your mother/father was there. Though we only realise that we were loved at old age.

Think about these things and then will you know how to embrace your family. The Value of family is of tremendous vitality. Come together and reason, especially you that still have an opportunity to make families – use this time to groom children that shall fear the Lord, it is a profitable thing, so rewarding on your own life when your children know the Lord and can pray for you, when they can trust in the God of Abraham. The Lord still has his plans for us, to give us expected ends. Psa 33:11 the counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. For the sake of we his children! Lam 3:26 it is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Let us not rush, the Lord has the plans for us, if we live according to his word, we shall finally land into the place of his designation upon us. Dear Jesus we thank you! Heb_3:14, Heb_10:35; 1Pe_1:13. Jesus Christ, you are my life Alleluia!

Prayer

Dear Lord, thou kind and loving father of Abraham’s seed, ancient of days, creator of heaven and earth and all that is in them, we thank thee, Jesus we thank thee, holy spirit we thank thee! Thou art holy. Let thy name be glorified above all names that claim existence. We pray that thou abide with us, we plead the blood of thy son Jesus Christ upon all those that are given to marriage, and that they may praise thy name forever; we pray that thou manifest thyne strength upon their weaknesses that their doing may be of thee. That they may fear thy name forever and know thee and the power of thy son’s resurrection, father we thank thee, for protecting these marriages and making them know that thou art pleased with them in Jesus’ Mighty name. Amen. Thank you Lord Jesus for freeing us from the Law of No Marriages!

Motherhood! God’s Intended Purpose

The Beginning Of The End Has Hope

Show me dear Jesus my Own mistakes that I may correct them, those I cannot I pray thee correct them for me, search me and find what you did not plant inside of me and pluck it out In Jesus’ Name.

If I say the World – the Human race is likely to become instinct in the near future; I will be to some extent right if i say this! Truth is slowly being rulled out. If only we could turn to him while we still have the time, the better!  The Lord says, “(Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

“Lam 3:26  It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”

But, WE HUMANS, what have we done that the eye has seen the ear? We have committed abomination, outrage, a detestable thing in the eyes of the creator, do we think we can argue with his creation plan? Satan tried and he was thrown down to earth, he left that beautiful place called Heaven – the dwelling of the Most high! What do you think the Lord will do to us? The human race will not overthrow the plan of God, yet, it is indeed known that trying they shall try until the day the Lord lets Abraham’s seed rule the World!

Jer 33:25  Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Jer 33:26  Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.

The Lord Is Still Willing To reconcile with YOU & me today!

Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Act 10:43  To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Go to any living Church, a church that love God, and you will find him there! Read the Bible – It must be a holy Bible, the Man of God Prophet T. B. Joshua has said it more clearly “The Bible becomes Holy when before you read it, pray that God may be involved”. The word is …

Call upon the name of the Lord in truth and in spirit, then shall ye Live!

Prayer,

Father, I pray thee in Jesus’ name. Make me beautiful within, create a clean heart within me and renew the spirit within me and forgive my sins!

Remove every substance (Physical and Spiritual, intellectually or emotionally) that the enemy might have deposited inside of me, whatever it is that I might have eaten through dream, or from the table of the enemy, be removed in Jesus’ name. I break any covenant that I have with the enemy that I know and that I know not, whatever it is with my life that is not yours Lord Jesus, I break it! I stand in the blood of Jesus, and the fire of the Holy Ghost. I know the enemy does make his fake fire too, but I call the unquenchable, the iron smelting fire of the holy ghost to consume every demonic authority in my life, destiny, health, finances, matrimonial, Career, among my children in Jesus’ Name. Straighten me dear Jesus I pray. In Jesus’ name.

Thank you father, thank Jesus Christ for thy LOVE and presence in my life, thank you for answering my prayer and for releasing me and all that is to do with me and all that are connected to me.
