When we declare that we are committed to a person, project or thing we are simply saying we would do everything to make sure that the goal is achieved. The Bible says God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son to save it. God created this world and He was not going to sit idly by and watch the enemy turn His beautiful creation into a desolate waste. As His children redeemed from the waste of darkness, it behoves on us to live a life that is worthy. He had promised that since He did not spare His Son but gave Him to us to redeem us from the life of sin, He will together with Him freely give us all we need to live a life that is worthy, full of dignity and honor in a depraved and dark world. Thus, He tells us in Colossians 3:17a  (AMP) - "And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person..." No compartmentalized heart or life where Jesus Christ is just one slice of

The Open Door!

Have you noticed that when a Word from the Lord goes forth concerning you, it looks as if something had positioned itself to stop the Word from coming to pass? Unfortunately, instead of patiently waiting for it, so many get disillusioned and weary; a lot enter the trap of doubt and unbelief, mope around and everything they do or say is colored with their feelings. This is not strange or new! However, if you are in this ship, do disembark and walk in faith; remember that your unfaithfulness will not make the Lord unfaithful. If He has spoken then He will bring it to pass. No matter how much you mope or go around feeling sorry for yourself, it will not hasten what He had said rather you will delay it by your actions and unpreparedness. In  1 Corinthians 16:9 Apostle Paul says, "There is a great and effective door open to me, and there are many adversaries." This is the way of the Kingdom. Spiritual opportunity is always accompanied by opposition: Open door - many adversaries! T

Are You Running On Empty?

Truthfully? When driving, the last thing I remember to do is buy fuel. My husband had repeatedly giving me ‘lectures’ on why I must not run my car on empty. My excuse? It takes too much out of my time to stop; I equally forget that I would spend much more time and money if the car sputters to a stop as I may not only have to buy fuel but change certain parts in the car. Very frustrating if you are someone like me, thus I find myself (not intentionally) most times running my car on empty! Unfortunately, so many run the spiritual race in like manner. Let us take a look at  Luke 10 verse 38-42:  "As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. She had a sister called Mary who sat at the Lord's feet, listening to what He said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to Him and asked, 'Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell

Allow God To Fetch

Many children of God have made choices and taken decisions that are now hard to bear. Unfortunately, so many are not learning from the mistakes of those that had gone before them, but desire to make their own. No matter what the teachings are on why it is acceptable to make your own mistakes and learn from them, these mistakes can be painful and the road to recovery hard to bare. Why not try to learn from those that have gone before? The Bible tells us that the accounts in Scriptures were written for us to learn and not to fall into the same mistakes the characters made but to learn from both their weaknesses and strengths. One area that the children of God seem to sermonize over and think God will overlook is the area of unholy alliances. The Lord clearly warns in 2Corinthians 6:14-16 that we should not be mismatched with unbelievers. This is not to say that we should not talk with them that would be like saying we should move to another planet. But the Lord is saying we cannot be

Time To Dethrone Athaliah

Did you know that Judah had a Queen that ruled her for six years before she was dethroned? This discourse is not whether it was wrong for her to rule because of her gender but rather the manner with which she took the Throne and how she was dethroned. In our physical and spiritual lives as children of the Most High God, some things come in violently to take the lordship of our hearts and we are unable to unseat them no matter how hard we try! So many children of God are increasingly rendered impotent to the things of God and are killed spiritually by the arrows from the kingdom of darkness: we will find these arrows in Galatians 5:19-21 and 2 Timothy 3:1-8. Have you never wondered why when you attend great meetings where you had great encounters with God, only to go back to your old habits after awhile? It becomes a great struggle to sustain the euphoria of these great encounters! This lethargy is not to be taken for granted or swept away to be dealt with later. You have prayed and
