23 things I have learnt in 23 years

Hello everyone 👋

So I’ll be 23 years in a few days yippee💃💃 and I thought to bring out a post about 23 things I’ve learnt in 23 years of living 😁 I really don’t know how this post is going to turn out but I’m really going to try and be as open and practical as possible,so join me and let’s delve into this together:

1. Man at His best cannot direct his ways 😤,you need God!!

2. You need someone that has gone far in this life to also show you the right path…you need fathers and mentors,it makes everything easier and prevents a lots of errors. Look for them!

3. Your parents have gone ahead of you,listen to them especially if they are believers,they know better and want the best for you.

4. You need godly friends and associations,you were not created to live this life on your own,have godly associations with similar opinions as you.

5. In the multitude of counsel,there is safety. Before you make decisions ,try and talk to a couple of trusted people, it will keep you safe.

6. You don’t need to rush about anything, take your time and know what God is saying concerning every situation.

7. Consistency is key 🔑 Living a life of consistency brings results, try it out☺

8. Always be thankful. It is very important to live a life of gratitude, great things happen to those that are grateful and appreciative in life and I’ve seen this to be true 👍

9. Don’t murmur,avoid grumbling,don’t complain. If at all you are still going to end up helping out,why complain then in the first place 🤷‍♀️,it doesn’t change anything and God hates it!

10. Be intentional,do things on purpose, be deliberate,don’t just do anything you feel like doing ,don’t just live your life how you feel like living, even God was intentional in creating you,life your life on purpose!

11. Never stop learning. Heard of the quote:the day you stop learning you strat dying? It’s true, as far as you are living ,you owe this to yourself and the people around you. Learn something daily no matter how small it is,learn from people,learn from events and happenings you face everyday.

12.Always be Joyful…rejoice forevermore, ever wondered why even when Paul was in prison, his letter to the church in phillipians was rejoice always, it’s because your Joy is not based on what is happening around you,it is based on the fact that God loves you no matter what you are facing ,so always keep that smile on your face,you deserve it!

13. You are responsible for you, no one else is. You see that dress you want to wear, wear it,the post you want to post,post it ,the food you want to eat,eat it;as far as you do not sin,do it anyways.

14. Life is short,Always be kind to people,you never can tell who you are helping and how the kindness you show today can come back to you in multiple folds tomorrow.

15. First impression do matters, be friendly🤗 so true!!

16. Be bold,be courageous, it will make people even trust you more.

17. Be respectul,be courteous, it will make people like you more and you never can tell who is watching you.

18. Dare to believe, be positive. Always try to surround yourself with positive people even in negative circumstances, be an optimistic person, learn to trust God,be a faith filled person, it will take you far in life.

19. Be faithful even in the little things. No matter how little you think you are or you think you have, if you want God to take you far ,you really need this one, be faithful where you are at.

20. Be a family person, have time for your family, create time ,always be there for them, you were put in that family for a reason and they are the ones who will love you at all times no matter what you face or what you do,so treasure them.

21. Learn to tolerate people, nothing lasts for ever not even people.

22. Be a student of the word, I really tell you this ,it is how much of the word of God that you have in you that will take you far in life irrespective of what you face ,know the word for yourself,study the scriptures for yourself, it will save you a lot of stress.

23. Be prayerful! This is the last one I’m writing but definitely the most important, because I have come to understand that life is spiritual,nothing just happens,whatever happens to you has been decided already in the realm of the spirit, so learn to change things through prayers.

Above all,you need the person of the Holyspirit to guide you through this life,talk to Him,He listens and is ever ready to help you navigate the storms of life.

“Bonus point”

I really hope this blessed you,please let me know how it did.

Till next time,thank you for reading 🤗

THE ONE I LOVE

Yeyy💃💃💃 It’s the last day in year 2020! God has been so faithful, so many ups and down but permit me to say this has been my best year ever. In this year I graduated from medical school after 6 years, passed my country’s license exam all in this same year that was rampant with COVID-19 and so many lockdown, but God did this one for me. I’m sure you too have something to be grateful for,why don’t you take the next one minute and say thank you Jesus 🙌🏻 The one we love has done this for us ,the fact that we have seen the last day of year 2020 is a testimony in itself. Glory to God!! Remember to be grateful throughout year 2021 to God and to the people God will bring your way.

So Any new year resolutions yet?This is that time of the year when many people start writing new year resolutions,having do’s and don’ts for the new year, I’m really not against it ,I guess it works for many people but I just want to talk to us about something we can rather commit ourselves to do in this new year which I’m certain will help us in every area of our lives. I’m talking about intentionally loving God in this year.

Ever wondered why the scriptures say in John 14:15 that:

“Loving me empowers you to obey my commands”.

It is as though the reason why as believers there is a struggle to keep the commandments of God is because we do not love God enough. I know most people would argue about that and beat their chest to say its untrue,but as we see from the scriptures when we love God we are empowered to automatically obey His commands.

We have been called into a love relationship with a love God, for God is Love and Love is God,

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.]
1 John 4:8 AMP

Christianity is a way of life, I so much believe that when we truly come into realization of the depth of God’s love, we will truly accept His love and choose on our own to stay with God. When we are hungry and passionate about God, you will always remember to do His will for you.

A song writer once sang about the reckless love of God, part of the song goes thus:There’s no shadow you won’t light up,
Mountain you won’t climb up,
Coming after me There’s no wall you won’t kick down
No lie you won’t tear down
Coming after me

This is just a glimpse of the description of the love God has for us, when a person loves you this deep, it is just normal to love back. God loves you and I, there is no doubt about that but do you love God as well? Have you responded to the love God has for you, how did you respond, are you still responding even today, in the way you live, the way you talk, in your school, in your workplace?

Another song says:

The one I love is ever before me,He’s seal’s up my heart, I live for the one I love.

Who do you live for ? Remember we have been bought with a price, the blood of Jesus and we are to honour God even in the way we live.

I believe when we truly love God and have the assurance that God loves us even much more, we will be able to sail over whatever difficulties that we might face. Rest in God’s love, respond to God’s love.

Love compels us,Love births hunger,hunger sustains the move of God in a generation.

We need to be sustained in this new year, we need to be sustained mostly in our spiritual walk with God. I believe discernment and perception are two necessary factors we need to fly and move forward in this year and beyond and the very foundation of all this is “LOVE”. You cannot go to where God has called you to if you do not Love.

The compelling power of Love,ever heard of that before? Love is a driving force, Love is powerful, Love will drive you , channel your love towards God, it will make you go all out for Him.Love for God will make you meditate on scriptures, it will make you spend time in prayers, it will make you praise and worship God like never before.

Love for God will make us not to continue in sin. Quite importantly, let’s make sure we avoid sin in this year and beyond,Love for God will help us achieve this. When a man has something to hide,he is slow in speech; when a man has nothing to hide,his voice is loud, when a man is not doing the assignment God has given him to do, it is because he has something to hide. You cannot preach on consecration if you are not separated unto God.

Let us not forget throughout this year the scriptures in Daniel 1:8 and in Job 31:1; as Daniel purposed in his heart not to sin and even as Job also made a covenant with his eyes so he would not sin, Let us also purpose in our hearts not to disobey the commandments of God and remember its YOUR LOVE FOR GOD that will empower you to Live for God in this year and beyond.

Have a beautiful 2021🙂.

DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER.

Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Ephesians 2:11‭-‬12 NKJV

Most times,as believers we tend to forget how good God has been to us,we often forget all He has done for us and the numerous things He has saved us from. It’s kind of human nature to naturally forget the good one has done if the same person who did the good later does something we regard as wrong or maybe the person does not come to our aid again when another issue arises,but this is so wrong.

When God tells us to remember, it is not a suggestion, it is rather a command.

Let’s not be quick to forget,verse 13 goes further to tell us that:

Yet look at you now! Everything is new! Although you were once distant and far away from God, now you have been brought delightfully close to him through the sacred blood of Jesus—you have actually been united to Christ!
Ephesians 2:13 TPT

Do not forget,we were bought with a price,the blood of Jesus washed us clean and saved us from every of our sins,the blood of Jesus brought us close to God,the blood of Jesus made us to become joint-heirs with Christ(Rom.8:17), the blood of Jesus was the price that was paid for our freedom and our sonship. This in fact is the basis of our salvation. Glory to God!!

Another instance in the bible that we can find God saying the people should remember is found in Deuteronomy 5 verse 15

And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
Deuteronomy 5:15 NKJV

Other scriptures are also found in Deuteronomy 8:2-18, Exodus 16:31-36. The Lord told the children of Israel to even remember some feasts like the passover feast and the feast of unleavened bread which is still remembered till today (Exodus 12:1-20)

It is not surprising that God often told the children of Israel to remember how He delivered them from Egypt, but it’s sad that they didn’t listen to Him,little wonder they always complained and majority didn’t make it to the promised land. They literally complained in all these scriptures and more: Exodus 5:1-22,Exodus 14:11-12,Exodus 15:22,Exodus 16:1-4 ,Exodus 17:1-4,Exodus 32:28,Numbers 12:1-12,Numbers 14:1-10,Numbers 16:41,Numbers 20:1-5.

When we forget to remember, we often complain and become ungrateful and it hinders us and others from being all who God has called us to be.

Because the Israelites forgot to remember how God delivered them from Egypt, they were always dissatisfied with their current situations, they never saw any good about their lives, they always complained and even Moses could not make it to the promised land,all because of this.

Please no matter what you are facing now,even if you feel God has not been good to you, please remember the fact that you are alive to read this,it means God still loves you and there is hope for you,remember:

There is hope for those who are still alive—it does not matter who they are. But this saying is true: A living dog is better than a dead lion.
Ecclesiastes 9:4 ERV

Is this not why even till date,we observe different feasts like Chrismas,Easter and the Holy communion as we were told to do in the scriptures :

and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
I Corinthians 11:24‭-‬25 NKJV

Even Jesus knew we could often forget things we should ALWAYS REMEMBER.

My prayer for us today is that, oh!may we never forget ro remember how good God has been to us.

Thank you for joining us again today,

Till next time,

Don’t forget to remember ❤.

Below, I included a sermon I watched which triggered this post,please do watch it when you can👇👇

So Now, what’s next?

Hello lovely people,

It’s August 1st, happy new month!!

I just want to share something short for us to reflect on today. I was just thinking about certain things earlier today and some things dawned on me. You know when the year 2020 started, I believe we were all excited,like everyone was happy, it’s 2020!! No one really knew that there will be a lockdown and many activities will be disrupted and many plans cancelled because of a pandemic, we probably didn’t see this coming. It just made me realize what the scriptures say about the sovereignty of God,

But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases.
Psalm 115:3 AMPC

I, too, give witness to the greatness of God,
    our Lord, high above all other gods.
He does just as he pleases—
    however, wherever, whenever psalm 135:5-6 MSG

The sovereignty of God

This scripture is so profound, Our God does whatever he wants to do, HOWEVER, WHEREVER and WHENEVER. We can’t question Him and we can’t choose for Him, Yes we pray,but when we do pray we are basically enforcing that His perfect will be done here on earth (Matthew 6:10).

So now when we take this same principle into our lives,we can’t tell God what we want to do, how we want to do it, where we want to do it and when we want to do it, but it is so sad that that’s what we see happen today, its like we dictate for God and tell Him what we want for our lives without first knowing if that is what He wants for us or not.

But who are you, a mere man, to criticize and contradict and answer back to God? Will what is formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus? [Isa. 29:16; 45:9.] Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same mass (lump) one vessel for beauty and distinction and honorable use, and another for menial or ignoble and dishonorable use?
Romans 9:20‭-‬21 AMPC

There is also a similar scripture to this in Isaiah 64:8, Jeremiah 18:1-9. This shows that this is something God really wants us to be aware of, we are His clay, He is the potter, “what we do should not contradict who we are and who He has made us to be “.

So now, we could ask that “so what is God’s will for my life”?

The answer is found in Romans 12:2

Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Romans 12:2 TPT

This right here is the goal, that we should live a beautiful life,satisfying and perfect in “HIS” eyes; and how do we do this? we have to be transformed by the Holyspirit through the word of God! Yes,back to the word!!

You know our God is a love God,He doesn’t force us to do anything, we are ‘choice-beings’ but I just pray that we make the best decisions in life through the help of the Holyspirit.

I just want to remind you again, that when it seems like you’ve reached the end you initially set for yourself,by yourself;you don’t know what else to do;what you had planned didn’t work out well and you’re wondering: SO NOW,WHAT’S NEXT?don’t worry,even in the midst of any crisis you may not know what to do,but I have good news for you, God knows!! So ask Him and let Him lead you.

Remember,

Lord , I know that none of us are in charge of our own destiny; none of us have control over our own life.
Jeremiah 10:23 GNT

I really hope this blessed you.

Till next time,

Let God lead you, He is sovereign.

BECOMING A VESSEL UNTO HONOUR.

“…And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
2 Timothy 2:19‭-‬21 KJV

Hello beautiful people! So I recently read a book by Rebecca Brown called “becoming a vessel of honour” and the words written in the book really spoke to me so I decided to write on the same topic and I recommend you to read the book.You know,in my home and I think in yours too, there are certain plates or spoons that my mum has left out for special occasions and it only comes out in Christmas or Easter time while the other cheaper ones are readily available anytime for use. This verse is easily relatable because it explains such situations.

I believe what Paul was basically telling Timothy was that for Him to be a man or a vessel God can use for His glory, there are certain things you can do and certain things you should not do. I believe it’s that simple. There are certain sacrifices you just have to make. God loves us so much, and the sacrifices we make are not for Him to love us more,oh no! they are rather for us to love Him more and to be sensitive to His leading so He can use us more.

So I know the next question you would have now will be just as the people had after Peter spoke in Acts 2:37…”what shall we do”?and I have 2 answers to that question which I will briefly look at:

1. Examine thoroughly the state of your heart and see where you are at the moment, considering your actions,remembering the past and learning its true character. If there is anything you have done wrong,please remember:

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9 and also,

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1 John 2:1

Learn to keep short accounts with God,don’t let unconfessed sin build up in your life,it can destroy your relationship with God and make you afraid to come boldly into His presence.

2. Fellowshiping with God.

I really can’t overemphasize on this point. Friends, the Holyspirit Himself will help you depart from iniquity, the more intamacy you have with Him,the easier it is for you to say no to sin. That’s the way it goes. Let your love for Christ compel you to depart from iniquity. You can’t do it with your own strength, you can’t, you need a staying power that can only come the more you wait on Him, the more you Love on Him, the more you spend time in prayers,in fellowship with the word;the more you practice His presence,the easier you naturally live a life where you not only are righteous but you also do righteousness.

For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.
Isaiah 40:30-‬31 MSG

Living a life of righteousness is possible,and it’s the life we have been called to live,but you can’t do it on your own,you need the strength of God derived from waiting on Him.

Starting from today and beyond,why don’t you decide to get more of this strength from waiting on Him,and remember even if you fall, rise again and keep going but don’t expect to fall,rely on the Holyspirit to help you.

I really hope this blessed you today,feel free to like and drop a comment and let’s know how it blessed you. I love you and I’m praying for you!

Till next time,

Remain in God’s love❤.

THRIVING IN DIFFICULT TIMES

Hello there🙂,I’m excited you are here again today. So as you can read from the topic,we will be talking about something that has been on my mind of recent:”thriving in difficult times”. It is very easy to flourish, do well and prosper when conditions are optimal,but how do we prosper or grow when conditions are unfavourable or when times are hard or things are not happening the way we want it to?

As usual, we will have scriptural references for a solution to this.

Let’s take a look at Isaac; the bible records in Genesis chapter 26 Verse 1 which starts by saying that there was famine in the land…

There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
Genesis 26:1 NKJV

So the bible doesn’t make mistakes, it started by saying there was a famine in the land, besides the one that was there in the time of Abraham, another famine arose…famine basically means scarcity,lack, here it was scarcity of food, so things were not going well in the land,there was hunger, poverty,starvation, malnutrition, crop failure and increased mortality most probably, things were hard,there was no growth,and everywhere seemed dry!!

Then there was a change in the story, in verse 12-14 of the same chapter something happened,let’s check it out…

Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.
Genesis 26:12‭-‬14 NKJV

The bible makes us understand clearly that this man prospered irrespective of the famine,he sowed,he sowed in that same land of famine! HCSB(Holman Christian Standard Bible) says that the man became rich and kept getting richer until he was very wealthy. It just makes us understand that there is a difference between being rich and wealthy, well that’s not our topic for today🙂. You know it really takes FAITH for you to sow in a land and expect to reap a harvest when you can see that there is famine in the land. Isaac saw that the condition for harvest was unfavourable,maybe there was no adequate rain at that time, no sunlight, the soil wasn’t fertile,but he still went on to sow,WHY?

The answer is this, ISAAC HAD A WORD FROM GOD!! Beloved, it doesn’t matter at all what is around you or what surrounds you or what you are facing now, as far as you have a word from God, you can bank on it that all will be well! As far as God has spoken already concerning that situation and you believe, He will cause things to work out in your favour, he can command the seas, the stars, the soil,the land,the earth and name it,anything at all,as far as it has a name,just for you. So How do I know Isaac had a word from God ?

Then the Lord appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
Genesis 26:2‭-‬5 NKJV

The Lord basically plainly told him after verse 1 recorded that there was a famine in the Land, to dwell in that same land where there was famine, because He was going to bless Him irrespective of the condition of the Land.I love this about our father! He really wants us to trust Him and see that He can make rivers even in a desert. God told Him to believe for good in the midst of evil,that’s why the Bible purposely started this chapter by saying there was a famine. Things were looking bad but wealth was going to come out of that famine. If Genesis chapter 26 had started by saying the land was flowing with milk and honey ,everyone was rich and harvest was plenty then verse 12-14 would not have been a testimony right? Yes!

If we continue to verse 16 we see that Abimelech said Isaac should leave the land, because he was mightier than them. Isaac went to the valley of Gerar and dwelt there but because he prospered there too,he was sent away until finally when he dug another well they let him be …( Genesis chapter 26:16-22) These people did not understand something,they thought that if they sent him away, perhaps they could stop him from being prosperous because they envied him, they did not realize that when God has blessed a man and that man knows that he is blessed and he walks in the revelation of this understanding he prospers no matter,I repeat no matter where he is placed and no matter what is happening around him,favorable or not.

Let us remember that just as Isaac had a word from God, we also have a word from God through the scriptures and we can count on the promises of God.

“Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, For they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
Isaiah 3:10 NKJV.

Good news translation says …”things will go well with them”

God can be trusted people, I know that sometimes it isn’t easy, what you hope for isn’t what you are seeing physically, but let us see with our heart also,through the scriptures and like Isaac, let us go out in faith and sow in the land and expect to see results!

I hope this has blessed you today,please feel free to like and leave a comment below,let us know how this has blessed you.

Till next time,

All will be well because God said so!❤

Remember,When you are in a difficult situation and you begin to sing and praise God that is a demonstration of your faith.

Dealing with temptation!

Hello everyone!🙂🙂 Hope you all are doing great by our God’s Grace!
Today we are going to learn about:”how to deal with temptations”👍

As humans, believers or unbelievers alike , we are ALL subject to various kinds of temptations.
This is because we are in a fallen world. We know that the devil was given access to the powers of ruling this world , as a result of Adam and Eve’s decision, according to the Book of Genesis. It was their act of disobedience that led to such devastating results, that not only they were affected, but all generations to come.

Before they commited the sin, they were tempted by satan, to eat the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 3 clearly tells us all , that the one who mediates temptation is satan. The devil would use any tool to present temptation on a platter before us. Always remember my dear friends, it is not God who tempts us! Don’t ever think that it is God who is trying to tempt you with sin, to see how you would respond!!

I mentioned before that disobedience(An act of sin) , was the outcome of giving into temptation. We all are tempted by the desires of the flesh. We understand that every human is a spirit, having a soul and living in a body. And we do know that the spirit of an unbeliever is dead, but the spirit of the One who believes in Lord Jesus Christ is Alive, and is in harmony with God’s Spirit. This is what distinguishes us from unbelievers.

It is through the earthly desires in our souls, that the devil uses as a tool to tempt us, since our souls are not perfect. So I would like to put it this way, sinful desires 👉 weaknesses 👉temptation👉 sin

But we have no excuse to give into temptation, since the Bible does tell us clearly, that our flesh which has all the earthly and deadly desires(which operates through our souls )was crucified on the cross and that the Power of resurrection is in us through the Holy Spirit.

This means that we have the power to continually partner with the Holy Spirit by prayer and reading God’s Word and also using the authority given by God, to put to death continuously the desires of the flesh. And by doing this our souls are continually being renewed. This ought to be continued until God calls us Home.

2Corin 12:9 tells us that God’s Grace is sufficient for us, and that His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses.
So by partnering with God, we can put to death the earthly , sinful desires 👉 weakness turn to strengths gradually by Grace 👉 Actions pleasing to God👉This gives us life and peace!

So finally my dear friends, let us flee from the temptations!! Let us not give into it!! Fleeing from temptation will give freedom to our souls, since it kills the flesh!!

God bless you all!! Partner with God, He will always help you!

HOW TO GET DESIRED RESULTS.

Hello everyone, so sorry it has been a while since I wrote last,trust you have been doing well? I am so excited to write today’s post and I’m sure you will be blessed today.

Today we will be looking at the topic:

Engaging God’s word for desired results.

Let’s start by defining the key words here:
What is engaging?
What does it mean to engage something?
Engage means fully occupied or having your full attention…if you’re busy or involved with something,you’re engaged in it.It takes a certain commitment to be engaged with something or someone. That’s why engaged often describes people who have committed to getting married.
I want us to really understand what it means to engage something,it’s not a half done or half baked thing,it definitely requires full commitment

Now,we’re talking about engaging God’s word for desired results. What are desired results?
Another word for desired result is a passionate aspiration or ambition,a dream. For example, as a student your desired result is to get a first class or to get all A’s or maybe for you just to pass right?
For a married woman,her desired result could be to get pregnant, for a single lady,her desired result could be to get married to a rich man before the end of the year or so,for soul winning your desired results could be to get 100 souls saved in 2 months and so on…

So basically we are talking about how to commit yourself to God’s word to get your desires. This topic is so profound because it is something that is quite relatable to me and most of us.We all want our desired results but the question now is are we ready to consistently commit ourselves to God’s words to get what we want? Are we willing and ready?
It’s so sad that in the days we are at now, many people are committing to so many different things and people just to get what they want,actively involved in social media (I’m not saying it’s bad,but excess is wrong right?)just to get what they desire.
We have to get back to doing things God’s way,doing things in the way of God. You might say but there are people in the world, they don’t even know God,they are unbelievers,they don’t love God like you do but they get their desired results. That might be true, but please remember the fact that a way works doesn’t mean it is the right way,it doesn’t mean it’s God’s way;the same way a person doing rituals to make money isn’t right yeah?
We are Christians and we are not of the world,we have to do things as citizens of heaven,because that’s where we belong, praise God!!🙌🏻🙌🏻

So now please follow me as we look at some scriptures…
Starting with John 15:4-5 TPT( The passion translation)

So you must remain in life-union with me, for I remain in life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine. “I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from me you are powerless.
John 15:4‭-‬5 TPT

We can see here that Jesus is talking about we as His disciples remaining in Him, as we all know, Jesus is the word of God, so when we re-phrase verse 5 we have:
“I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with the word of God as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from the word of God, you are powerless.
John 15:5 TPT

KJV says Abide in me….
This means to continue to dwell with and in the word of God,it means to wait for, to tarry continually,to wait expectantly.
So I think the question each person should ask his/herself is am I really engaging the word of God to get what I want?
Please try and answer this question within yourself.
Because engaging the word of God means even if I don’t see my desired results yet,I will wait for it,for it will surely come !
Amen🙏

Now,we will briefly look at:

How to Engage the word of God for our desired results


I have just three points here which I will quickly go over…

1.Meditate/ study the word of God

And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed.
Joshua 1:8 MSG(message version)

Notice the first point is not read,but rather meditate!
My papa,Pastor E.A Adeboye says:when you read,you skip the surface, but when you study,you discover the treasures
To meditate means to think deeply about continually,to focus on…
Don’t you know that Whatever you keep looking at,becomes strongest in your life?

Son, do what your father tells you and never forget what your mother taught you. Keep their words with you always, locked in your heart. Their teaching will lead you when you travel, protect you at night, and advise you during the day.
Proverbs 6:20‭-‬22 GNT

Please keep the word of God locked up in your heart, if you have to write out scriptures and paste them in your room,kitchen,doors ( like I did in my room)please do, you will need them.

2.Pray the word of God consistently with faith.

I believe prayer and faith goes hand in hand to an extent,so I’ll combine them here.

ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up).
Luke 18:1 AMPC

I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?
Luke 18:8 AMPC
This is a question Jesus is asking at the end of this parable which I am sure we are familiar with,if you aren’t please go back and read through it…
There is a kind of persistent faith that brings about our desired results, that’s another topic on it’s own,but please keep praying the word of God,Don’t get tired, don’t loose hope.

3. Speak the word of God.

Please understand that words of Faith guarantees God results, there is a place of prayer and there is a place of speaking out what you pray for. Remember you can never go wrong by speaking God’s word.

A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver
Proverbs 25:11 AMPC

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
Proverbs 18:21 AMPC

Conclusion.

So I’ll like to end this post with a personal testimony that happened in my life.
When I was quite younger, I used to have terrible thoughts of people that led me to have terrible and evil dreams of death and worse, they were so bad and they made me constantly worry and fear was dominant in my life until I learnt about the word of God.
You know Bro Kenneth Hagin says, you can’t stop a bird from flying through your head but you can stop it from building a nest on your head.
So I took that word and started confessing the word of God,when those thoughts came,I would quote scriptures like:I won’t die but live to declare the works of the Lord, the number of my days I will fulfill, no weapon formed against me prospers,I have not been given a spirit of fear but of power,love and a sound mind …
Believe you me,it wasn’t easy,it was war, it didn’t take 1 month nor 2 months ,it took a longer time but trust me for over ten years I have been free from negative thoughts and bad dreams,it doesn’t mean I don’t have wrong thoughts once in a while,I do but immediately they come,I fire back with the word of God and they never dwell in my heart!!
Praise God 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Just like me,you too can have your desired results through the word of God by using these 3 steps, become so soaked with the word of God ,that when you are pressed what comes out of you is the word of God.
Search out for scriptures that promise what you want and lock them up in your heart, if you need my help with scriptures feel free to let me know.

I’ll leave us today with two scriptures:

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Numbers 23:19 NKJV

Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: “That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged.”
Romans 3:4 NKJV

I’m sorry today’s post was rather long, but I really hope it blessed you.

Mind of Christ😇

Hi Everyone!🤗 Greetings in the Precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! I hope you all are doing GREAT by the Grace of God Almighty🙏

Today, we are going to talk about the Mind!! This is one of the topics that the devil HATES, because all the weapons of the devil targets the mind FIRST. So it is very important that we pay attention to our minds and what we think about.

As a medical student, I am well aware that when a patient comes to visit the doctor, the doctor is supposed to assess the patients’ condition by asking them a couple of questions pertaining to the illness and by examining them, so that a proper diagnosis could be made. We would then mainly direct the therapy to treat that disease.

For example, say a patient came to the doctor’s office, and after thorough examination, they made the diagnosis that the patient had a tumor in the body. Generally, they would treat the condition by surgically removing the tumor. That is the main therapy. They could give pain killers and other therapy associated with the symptoms and signs, but that is TEMPORARY and will not cure the patient. However, if the patient is to recover well and survive for a long time, the tumor GOT TO BE REMOVED!

So my point is that, many times in life we try to deal with so many issues, thinking that if I resolve that issue then I will be at peace , but we don’t pay attention to the root cause of it. I am not telling you that what you are going through doesn’t matter, but I am encouraging you to examine the condition in prayer and let the Lord reveal the root cause, which many times is the wrong thoughts in our MINDS.

The current situations you are facing may change, but if we don’t partner with the Holy Spirit to have the right thoughts, we would constantly find ourselves busy fighting unnecessary battles!

So let’s be encouraged to renew our minds with the Word Of God. The Word of God is the best medicine that is given by God Himself to us! And its free!!! The Great doctor (Lord Jesus Christ) Himself invented this medicine and payed it for us(with His precious Blood). So lets make best use of it by partnering with the Holy Spirit.

The Bible tells us that we have the mind of Christ. It means that our spirit-being has been totally made new in Christ. Our spirit- being has the exact thoughts of God and is the perfect creation of God. However our soul, of which the human mind is a part of, is not fully renewed. It will be perfected only when we leave this earth and be with our Lord Jesus in Heaven.

However until that, we have the responsibiliy to renew this mind with God’s Word EVERYDAY, so that God’s nature in our spirit-man becomes more and more a REALITY in our lives!

You would then find yourself responding to life’s situtations the way Christ wants you to respond. And no matter what the devil would bring against you, you will continue to stand firm by the Grace of God!

Finally, My CHALLENGE to us all is to examine ourselves in prayer and let God help us to find the wrong thoughts that we are pondering on, and to REPLACE it with related scriptures from the Bible, by constantly thinking about it and declaring it over our lives!

Have a blessed day Warriors and Overcomers !! I declare that even as we obey God’s leading , we will experiance great victories in our minds and as a result manifest God’s Glory in our lives, in Lord Jesus Name! Amen😇💪💪👍
