Passionate Plea

Psalm 103:7 “He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.” (KJV)

The Voice Translation of the same scripture reads, “He showed Moses His ways; He allowed His people Israel to see His wonders and acts of power.” The children of Israel just saw God’s acts and saw the miracles, but they did not know how it came. Read the rest of this entry

Look Ahead

Heb.12:2 “We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honour beside God’s throne.”

We have established that the barriers to moving from seeing to doing, the barriers to taking bold steps are real. The first barrier to taking bold steps is the barrier of complacency. The second is the barrier of loss or the unwillingness to bear loss. You must be willing to bear loss. Read the rest of this entry

Wait & Watch

Ps.130:5-6 “I pray to God—my life a prayer—and wait for what he’ll say and do. My life’s on the line before God, my Lord, waiting and watching till morning, waiting and watching till morning.” (MSG)

Yesterday, we started talking about taking a stand and we are looking at the story of Esther, please read Esther 4:1-16. From this reading, the first two things we highlighted are the importance of having boundaries physically and spiritually, Read the rest of this entry

Like A Seed

Luke 13:18-19 “…Do you want to understand the kingdom of God? Do you want Me to tell you what it’s like? It’s like a single mustard seed that someone took and planted in his garden. That tiny seed grew and became a tree so large that the birds could fly in and make their nests…” (Voice)

Yesterday we learnt that the money given to the servants was both a gift and a seed. Similarly, the gifts and wealth that God gives to us is just a seed and it is what we do with it that determines our future. My mind immediately goes to the servants that wrapped up the money and did not do anything with it. Read the rest of this entry

Engage

Luke 19:12-13 “He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” (KJV, emphasis added).

Our text over the next few days is from Luke 19:11-13 (KJV), Luke 19:15-26 (NLT), please read. The first thing we are told is that Jesus was near to Jerusalem, meaning Jesus was approaching the cross, the time He would leave His disciples and lay down His life. Read the rest of this entry

Fruit

John 19:11 “Then Jesus said, “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above…”

Yesterday, we talked about the glory confusion in the Church and how a lot of people are embracing shame because of ignorance. We need to understand that a man can have nothing except that which is given from above neither power nor glory. Read the rest of this entry

Unity & Glory

Rom. 15:6 “In this unity, you will share one voice as you glorify the one True God, the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, our Liberating King.” (Voice]

If in the few hours He had left, Jesus thought it important to pray for unity in the Church, then it is worthy of focus. What I say to my friends, my colleagues, my seniors in ministry is that, ‘we do not have to agree on all the minors. Read the rest of this entry

Son of Man

John 11:51-52 “He did not say this on his own; as high priest at that time he was led to prophesy that Jesus would die for the entire nation. And not only for that nation, but to bring together and unite all the children of God scattered around the world.”

John 11:44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.” [KJV]. Jesus had already brought Lazarus back to life, but He chose not to do the remaining work for them. Read the rest of this entry

God’s Gift

John 11:4 “But when Jesus heard about it he said, “Lazarus’s sickness will not end in death. No, it happened for the glory of God so that the Son of God will receive glory from this.” (emphasis added)

Jesus’ statement is very profound. If you are a child of God, you can safely conclude that what you are going through will not end in death. What you are going through will end in God’s glory. Am I saying that people will not die? Of course not. Read the rest of this entry

Saviour

John 5:14 “But afterward Jesus found him in the Temple and told him, “Now you are well; so stop sinning, or something even worse may happen to you.” (emphasis added).

This man had been crippled for thirty-eight years, so what sin was he committing?  Lust, greed, anger maybe; bitterness against the people that were supposed to help him but did not help him. Maybe jealousy against the people that got into the water first. Read the rest of this entry
