What Is Your Mission; Do You Even Know It?

As sons of God, we are called on periodically by the Lord to carry out specific missions for Him! It may be as little as giving, praying, helping, teaching, counseling, it is a mission nonetheless, for the furtherance of the Kingdom! Sadly, some of us get so preoccupied with what our purpose on earth is that we miss carrying out a present and pressing mission for the Kingdom! There are so many books, seminars, teachings and lectures on how to find one’s purpose. The idea is that if one can get and understand what his purpose is, life will begin to make sense to such. Thus, many that are yet to get what their purpose is are dissatisfied and depressed with life. The quest for finding out what one’s purpose is has led many down paths of hurts, despair and disappointment. However, that is not our discussion for today. As a child of God, do you know what your particular mission is at this time? I use the word ‘particular’ because we have a general mission for every child of God, whi…

Where Is Your Gaze Fixed – What Are You Preoccupied With?

     “We all with unveiled faces are reflecting the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory; this is from the Lord Who is the Spirit” (2Corinthians 3:18). The desire of God for us is to continue to gaze at His face daily. This is not as much as a physical thing but spiritual; meaning a daily preoccupation with God Almighty. As we do this, we are transformed into the same image we behold. This shows us that whatever we gaze at continually, we begin to spiritually transform into.        On each day, as humans, we are preoccupied with one thing or the other and our hearts set on a particular goal even if most times some of us can’t articulate what it is. Everything we do is geared towards advancing towards that which we hold dear in our hearts. No wonder David by the Holy Spirit declared: “I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire; to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and see…

The Birthing Position

“For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will accumulate teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myths. But as for you, keep a clear head about everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” – 2Timothy 4:3-5. “All these events are the beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:8).       Throughout Scriptures, we see the world unfold as written and as planned by the Creator. In fact the history of the world is His Story. When the people of the world encounter happenings and phenomena they can hardly understand or interpret they go back to history to see if such had occurred before. This gives them solace and the belief that just as the one in the past was resolved, so will the present predicament. Not a bad idea! However, that is the way of the world. So many children of God try to reason in this m…

As You Rest, Let’s Ponder On These Things

A third of the world is on one form of lock down or the other and the media is awash with all manner of information. All geared towards scaring the living day lights out of their viewers, readers and listeners. This is good of course. They say the information is to keep the people informed and to make them comply with the laws and regulations of the regulators of the societies. There is no problem with this, since it is for the well being of the people. However, instead of making people feel at ease, the overload of information has planted unwarranted fears in the hearts of people. To bring this home, as sons of God, why are there so many amongst the ranks that are secretly fearful? Remember, what is coming from the world and the government is information and NOT revelation. If we believe this, why is the information coming out informing our state of minds? Beloved, what are you afraid of? Jesus said to His Disciples: “…’Come away by yourselves to a remote place and rest awhile’…

And This Too Shall Pass

“Therefore let us approach the Throne of Grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time” (Hebrews 4:16).        Looking at the canvass of the world right now, there is fear, pain, chaos, confusion and death. One would think with all that is going on, the enemy and his agents will take a break from their evil works. Not really! Rather, they reinforce the pain, confusion and chaos by spreading fear through every platform they can lay their hands on. We are warned in the Bible not to fear their fear: “Do not call everything an alliance these people say is an alliance. Do not fear what they fear; do not be terrified” (Isaiah 8:12). But we are encouraged to stand and remain standing in our faith in Christ Jesus: “As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him” (Colossians 2:6, AMP). Since fear is spread by what people hear and take to hea…

Take Care How You Listen!

“The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).        There is a warning Jesus Christ gave His disciples that we at this present time must not lose sight of. After explaining the meaning of a parable He had just taught them and the public, He said: “For nothing is concealed that won’t be revealed, and nothing hidden that won’t be made known and come to light. Therefore take care how you listen…” (Luke 8:17-18a). So many at this time are not listening! This is evident in the chaos witnessed in the society, from government to the home front. Things and decisions that are clearly discerned are sounding as if they are from another planet. Certain decisions taken and you wonder if the person while taking it at the time was sane to begin with. We are living in a time that Wisdom is clearly shouting from the street corners but sadly, the voice of foolishness an…

Don’t Give Up!

Life is a constant battle. From the moment we drew our first breath to when we will draw our last, we are in a war! A young man told me a couple of days ago that he was tired of the fight and was thinking of ending it. ‘Why should life always be a battle’, he asked. He asked further, ‘if it all ends in death, why not quicken it along and end it all, once and for all?’ This is an extremely faulty logic peddled by the devil. Inasmuch as this present life is a constant battle in an unending war, eternity on the other hand, is based on the outcome of the war fought while in the flesh! It is then prudent to be mindful how we fight here. Why, you may ask.        From Genesis chapter 3, the battle line was drawn between man and the serpent: “I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head and you will strike his heel” (Genesis 3:15).And Revelation 12 made it more clear why the battle is more fierce for the sons of God: “So the…
