New Season

1 Cor.9:26 “So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.”

Phil.3:12-13Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead” (NIV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

His Plan, His People II

Ex.5:1 “Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Let my people go, so that they may celebrate a festival to me in the wilderness.’” (NRSV, emphasis added).

The centre of that great vision that God has planted in your heart has to be God and people. Do not assume that because God has spoken to you it means you can achieve your purpose alone. Moses tried to do it alone and it landed him forty years in the wilderness. Read the rest of this entry

Turn Around

Psalm 30:11 “You did it: You turned my deepest pains into joyful dancing; You stripped off my dark clothing and covered me with joyful light.” (Voice)

Perspective; the God perspective is so important otherwise Joseph would not have experienced his turn around. What do you think would have happened if Joseph had seen Potiphar’s house as the ultimate and gone to announce his manager status? Read the rest of this entry

Positive Progression

Ps.105:19-21 “Until the time came to fulfil his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character. Then Pharaoh sent for him and set him free; the ruler of the nation opened his prison door. Joseph was put in charge of all the king’s household; he became ruler over all the king’s possessions.”

By the grace of God, your turning point has begun; so, expect a turnaround from Darkness to Light. Expect a turning point from the Prison to the Palace. Please read the story of Joseph in Genesis 39 – 45. Read the rest of this entry

Power Two

Eccl. 4:9 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.” (NLT & MSG).

In the past few days, we have been learning about the five things we have to do to ensure that our ships set sail and not get wrecked at the harbour. First, stop Accusing And Excusing; Read the rest of this entry

Choose Wisely

Gal.6:5 “Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life” (MSG)

One of the greatest things God did to man was to give him the power to choose. And in my opinion, as much as it is the greatest blessings, it can also be one of the greatest curses that can happen to man. Read the rest of this entry

Shift!

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (KJV)

As a child of God, wherever you are on the face of the earth, you are designed to prosper regardless. And this is not just a pep talk or prosperity talk. I have shown you from scriptures, Read the rest of this entry

Stop It!

1 Kings 22:48 “Now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail–they were wrecked at Ezion- Geber.” (NIV)

By the grace of God, as a Pastor, I am committed to seeing the people God has called me to, fulfil their destiny. It is my life’s commitment. Our lives must glorify God. God must look at us and say, ‘these are My children’. Read the rest of this entry

The Climax & The Christ

John 7:37-38 “On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”

What do you think the high priests were thinking? ‘We should come to You?’ Some people in the crowds were probably thinking, ‘You from Galilee? There is no single prophet from Galilee! And You are saying we should come to You and You will give us living waters?’ Read the rest of this entry

Nothing Except

John 3:27 “John replied, “A man can receive nothing [he can claim nothing at all] unless it has been granted to him from heaven [for there is no other source than the sovereign will of God].” (AMP, emphasis added).

A man [born again or not] can receive nothing, except it is given to him from above. Yesterday we looked at the first two implications of this statement. The first implication is, Look To God And God Alone As Your Source. Read the rest of this entry
