Boundless

John.4:6-7 “Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

What are the things in your life that perhaps you are ashamed of? For the Samaritan woman, it was perhaps having five husbands. The Rabbis had declared three husbands to be the limit for women. Interestingly, men had no limit to how many wives they could marry. Read the rest of this entry

Move on!

Ps. 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.”

 

Ps. 37:8 (GW, emphasis added)Let go of anger, and leave your rage behind. Do not be preoccupied. It only leads to evil.” The reason some people are not serving in church today is that a Pastor [or minister] cut them deep. Read the rest of this entry

Let it go!

Ps. 37:8 (GW, emphasis added)Let go of anger, and leave your rage behind. Do not be preoccupied. It only leads to evil.”

 

The word resentment is from the root word ‘re-sentio’ and it means ‘to cut again’. So, when you repeat or rehearse the hurtful words to yourself, you are cutting yourself again. The person has said what he or she said, and they have moved on. But you are resenting them, you are rehearsing it, Read the rest of this entry

Let go!

Jer. 30:17 (NIV) “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord…”

 

Three main barriers can hinder the flow of New-Streams in our lives. The first one we looked at is worry. The second barrier we need to let go of is Wounds. Perhaps you have been lied to, or disappointed, or perhaps someone cheated you. Maybe it was even a brother [someone that you trusted] Read the rest of this entry

Needless

Philip. 4:6 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

 

God’s instruction to us concerning worry is, “Don’t worry about anything…” Worrying does not make sense. Worry does two things; firstly, worry exhausts your time and energy. Worrying is a waste of time and energy. Read the rest of this entry

Just Don’t

Matt.6:25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”

 

The freer the flow of New-Streams in our lives, the easier the race of life becomes. Three main barriers can hinder the flow of New-Streams in our lives. They are three “Ws”; this should also help us remember them easily. Read the rest of this entry

Unlikely Rescue

Isa.46:3 “Listen to me, …I have cared for you since you were born. Yes, I carried you before you were born. 4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime— until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.”

 

As adults, one of the things we learn with responsibility is, we like to own the outcome of the events in our lives. But there are certain times that you just need to do your best and leave the burden of outcomes to Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Stay Down!

Deut.8:3 (NKJV) “So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”

Yesterday, I shared my experience of being forced down with you and the gains I am still enjoying till this day. However, right in the middle of service year, Read the rest of this entry

Let Go!

John 3:27 “John answered, A man can receive nothing [he can claim nothing, he can take unto himself nothing] except as it has been granted to him from heaven. [A man must be content to receive the gift which is given him from heaven; there is no other source.]” (AMPC)

 

Jesus says in Luke 9:23 “…If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me.” You have to take self-righteousness, self-confidence, self-deception, self-centeredness, self-hatred, and nail it to the cross. Read the rest of this entry

The Real Deal

Mark 8:36-37 “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?  Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”

 

R-E-L-A-X:AdjustYour Values. The question you need to ask yourself is, what am I trading my life for? King Solomon had everything we spend our lives chasing and this is what he had to say. Eccl. 2:10-11(GN) Anything I wanted, I got, I didn’t deny myself any pleasure. I was proudof everything I had worked for… Then I thought about all I had done, and how hard I had worked doing it, and I realized it didn’t mean a thing”[with emphasis].
