Faith

What is faith? What's the role of faith in our christian lives? How do we develop our faith in God? Why is faith imperative for every christian?

Faith is a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

Hebrews 11: 1

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Having faith is by building confidence, assurance and obedience in God. It associates itself with truth, love and trust.

We can develop our faith in God by been obedient, reading, acting, and putting God's word to practice in our daily lives. If we do not practice the path of truth which is Christ Jesus, our faith will not grow to its full potential. However, in order to keep on growing, we need to be disciplined and focused on the things of God.

If we believe God can heal us why doubt his healing  powers. We need to remove that concept of doubt and fear in us. We need to open our hearts and believe in his works. Faith without works is dead. So we need to be devoted to the things of God.

James 1:6

"But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the winds."

To  maintain and keep our faith strongest, we need to stay in the word. We need to wrap ourself in the word,  sleep in the word, be drunken by the word, live by the word, be surrounded by the word, be equipped by the word, be drowned by the word and be soaked by the word, in Jesus name. 

Our God is so Awesome. There is nothing he starts that he won't finish. The only person stopping him from finishing his works is us, by doubting his power. We really need to pray for God to increase our faith in Him. Every hindering spirit preventing us from believing in God is cancelled and bound, in Jesus name. Amen.

Wisdom

What is wisdom? It's the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of  being wise. Wisdom is a gift from God. We need to seek the wisdom of God in every thing we do.

 

Often times, people find themselves making decisions without acquiring the right information or knowledge of what they seek for. It's imperative to be wise in the way we communicate with one another in different circumstances.

 

Proverbs 19:20

" Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise."

 

A wise advice was given to me by an older woman I ran at my place of work years ago. This woman spoke to me for approximately 20 minutes. She stated " My child, in order for you to  successful, listen and gather knowledge from people you come across. Don't act like you know it all. Be silent when spoken too. Learn to listen. The more you listen, the wiser you get. At first, I thought it was someone being a 'Smart Aleck' with me. But, little did I know that this was indeed my weakness. From that day on, I have learned to develop an attitude of listening more and talking less.

 

Recounting this part of my life explains why we need to use wisdom in every area of our lives.  It's not all about what I know, but rather about what  I can learn from the next person who crosses my path.

 

Often times, we love giving advice to others, but we need to  be careful about the way our information is being conveyed to others. We need to thoroughly analyze our thoughts before speaking out. We need to be mindful when speaking to the next person about what we are saying. Because sometimes our words can either hurt or bless someone.

 

James 1:5

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all, without finding fault, and it will be given to you."

 

I pray God will baptize us with the gift of wisdom. I pray whatever decisions we make in life, we will be wise about it. Thank you Lord.

Humility

What is the definition of humility? What does it means to be humble? Are you really humble? Humility means "humbleness" meaning putting others first before yourself. To be humble is to raise others above you.

 

Humility is meekness, lowliness and absence of oneself. Humility comes from the heart not an outward demeanor.

 

You can't be humble from the outward when the heart is prideful and arrogant. When you are humble there is gentleness, love, truth and grace.

 

Proverbs 11:2

" When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom."

 

You can't serve God without the spirit of humility. When a heart is full of pride and arrogance the Holy Spirit is silent. In order to be in total submission to God, we have to humble ourselves to Him.

James 4:7 "therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you."

 

Humility plays a very important roles in our lives and in the presence of God. Without humility you can't listen to the voice of God and others.

James 4:10 " Humble yourselves in the sight  of the Lord, and He will lift you up."

 

Be humble, be humble in everything you do. Don't be prideful. Pride is for those who decide to challenge God's wisdom and knowledge.

Proverbs 28:26 NLT, "Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe."

If our creator could send his only begotten son to walk in our midst without guards; then who are we not to humble ourselves?

 

Let's ask God to bless us with the gift of humility inside and out. Let Him grace us with his presence. We pray for the Lord to remove every hindering spirit stopping us, from manifesting His spirit of humility upon us, in Jesus name. Amen

Total submission to the Holy Spirit

Who does the Holy Spirit represents? It is the third person of the Holy Trinity. Holy Spirit is a mystery we cannot understand. Holy Spirit brings you closer to the things of God. Holy Spirit is a light that never stops shining.

 

1 Corinthians 6: 19-20

 

"Or do you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."

 

When you totally submit to the Holy Spirit, there is a special anointing upon your head. which means you have given authority to the Holy Ghost to manifest the Glory of God.

 

Holy Spirit resides in purity and holiness. You cannot have the spirit of God when you possess the spirit of pride, anger, envy, jealousy, self centeredness etc.

 

When you walk in the spirit of God, you experience obedience, humility, gift of discernment,love, truth, peace and grace. It also comforts and counsels. Praise God.

 

Holy Spirit is a powerful gift to possess, when the spirit of God is in you there is repentance, forgiveness, healing, deliverance and restoration.

 

Lets pray for total submission to the Holy Spirit. I pray He re-activates his fire in us. I pray He envelopes us with his presence. I pray for him to teach us to walk in his ways, truth, love, humility and submission. Let Him take authority over our lives in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

Are you a blessing to someone?

There are times as individuals, we do not understand the meaning of being blessed or what it means to be a blessing to someone else. The Lord has put us, in a position whereby we can be of assistance to someone.

 

Deuteronomy 15:10

"Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to."

 

Do you know, we were created to be a blessing to one another? Or do you think the blessing was meant only for you? If our God is a giving God, then why can't we follow his ways? He supplies all our needs daily, why can't we also be in a position to assist others in need or just be a blessing to someone else. Our God has put us in a position where we can help each other and others.

 

There are so many ways of blessing people. It can either be through finances, shelter, sharing information, praying for others, counseling etc. There are a lot of people out there who need our helping hand. It doesn't  have to be much. Every little help goes a long way.

When you begin to bless someone, it opens great doors to your destiny and generations to come. Blessings are like sowing seeds in people's lives. Whatever we sow into someone's life, we  will reap it.

 

Galatians 6:7

" Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.

 

Our God  did not create us to hold back, but to share our God-giving blessings. We are blessed to be a blessing. Proverbs 11:25, "The generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." Let's develope an attitude of giving without expecting. Be the destiny helper the Lord appointed you to be. We were raised to be destiny helpers. Let's start acting our role. Be a blessing, a giver, a way-maker, an intercessor for others, etc

 

I pray that God will remove every stronghold holding us from being a blessing to others in Jesus Name. Amen
