MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE.

IMG_20170812_214517_086.jpg

Hello there, I know it’s being really long since I shared a message  here. Vacating from school, I really taught i was going to have a lot of free times so I would be able to write more messages, but home duties and some other stuffs just have being keeping me busy. Moreover I just can’t be writing on demand, it definitely should come from inspiration so you can also be inspired too, and that’s why I am here today sharing with you this amazing piece of inspiration I got from listening to Tasha Cobbs song titled Fill me up. This song is really beautiful, just check it out.

So why did I titled this piece make yourself available? Well like I said I got the inspiration from the song which starts with this beautiful words and I quote “ You provide the fire, I will provide the sacrifice” which comes from the story of Abraham and his son Isaac in the bible. Hundred years after Abraham finally having a son(Isaac) it got to the point where he was tempted to offer Isaac as a burnt offering unto the Lord. As obedient and trusting Abraham was to the Lord, he did exactly us he was told. He took his only son to the mountain and with faith he laid Isaac down to be offered for the sacrifice. He didn’t question God on why or the reasons he needed to have before he sacrifice his only son. With curiosity Isaac asked his father where the lamb for the burnt offering was, Abraham beautifully answered with faith and assurance that “My son the Lord will provide Himself a lamb for the burnt offering” even though he knew Isaac was the burnt offering God told him to offer.

So lo and behold as Abraham took his knife to slay his son, the bible says an Angel of the Lord spoke to him and told him not to lay his hands or do anything to him but rather he should go for the ram which was caught in a thicket by his horns. The Lord came through for Abraham when he taught he was going to sacrifice his only son. It was an act of faith and the fear of the Lord, he completely made himself available to God’s word. Abraham had thousands of options to choose from, he could have flew somewhere with his son or he could have just ignored God’s word but he kept inside his mind that no matter what comes my way I know the Lord will provide and so I have to make myself available anytime He calls.

Dear reader Abraham is no more here on earth to make himself available to God’s word, but you are and now God is calling you to do something that requires you to break out of your comfort zone or something that requires you to give it all up and start all over and maybe you are scared to lose it all or you are scared the world is going to look at you differently now. Well I am here and am inspring you to start thinking over Abraham’s encounter,  it looked so scary and difficult to do but he looked at the great things the Lord could do with his life and he made himself available. 

Yours might not be a sacrifice of your only child, but maybe it might be you quitting that million dollar job to start a church outreach at a cottage somewhere in the world or you leaving your boy or girlfriend to wait on who God has really prepared you for. It’s scary to the world for you but God is saying your job is not to worry about how scary it looks, yours is just to make yourself available.

Ending this piece, I would like to just chip in a story about myself on when I was starting this blog, it looked so difficult to do because i was putting myself out there into a world which has so many great inspirational speakers and writers, and moreover what if no one reads what I post or even share it for other people to read also. But with faith and the Grace of God I humbly made myself available to what I felt God was calling me to do and I started this blog. Amazingly it hasn’t even being a year since I started, but this blog is growing so much even than the extent that i taught of, as each day passes I get emails and messages from people on social media encouraging me to continue this great work and to keep making myself available to God’s work.

I know sometimes it might look so tempting on the things God asks us to do or where He asks us to go (like for instance how on earth do I offer my only child as a burnt offering) But Abraham’s story teaches us now that the temptations are not just to scare us but to reveal how truly and deeply we fear the Lord, how ready we are to trust him first in all things and how prepared we are to go wherever he sends us.

God really loves you my dear reader, He loves you so much to the extent that He also gave His only son as a sacrifice for you too on the cross of calvary, and so if all he is requiring of you now is to make yourself available anytime he calls then please provide yourself for Him, just open your spirit up for him to fill. He is the God of the impossible, He wants your availability to work on that thing that looks impossible to you, but he is not a force God, He won’t force you to be there for him whenever he calls. His love is so great and pure that he has given us the freewill to either choose him or do whatever we want to. Let’s choose to trust God us Abraham did and we will never be put to shame no matter what comes our way.

NB; The story of Abraham being tempted to offer Isaac as a burnt offering can be found in the book of Genesis 22

IN THE VALLEY OF DECISIONS.

 

20170530_163028.png

In the valley of decisions where your boss says if you do not go with the bribery and corruption plan you will get fired…..just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where your manager or manageress says share a bed with him or her before they give you that money to pay your dying mother’s bill for her medication……just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where you have been battling with the idea of joining your friends in that robbery to get money so you can survive for a living…….just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where you are deciding to abort that unwanted pregnancy because your partner says he can’t cater for the baby……..just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where you think your only option is to lie so you will not put into shame or trouble on that thing you didn’t do but  have been accused of…….just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where the doctor says there is nothing they can do so you have to sign up for organ donations because your child or parent is brain dead…...just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where you feel like giving up because you have been failing a thousand times on that one paper you need to pass to gain admission……just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where your husband or wife says sign the divorce papers because you can’t give him or her a child…….just hold on.

In the valley of decisions where there seem to be just no way and the adversary says give in…….just hold on.

Now here is why you don’t have to give in to the adversary;

See Christ never promised that the cross will not be heavy and the hills will not be hard to climb, neither did He offered victories without fighting but He said help will always come in time.

You will never be forsaken, you want proof that He will never forsake you? Then ask the children of Israel,  they taught the read sea was going to be the end of them, it was the end of their enemies.

Sometimes in that Valley of decisions lies our victory and sometimes the trap you think you have been putting through is actually your road to triumph. Sometimes the things that looks like it’s going to destroy or break you down are just the things to destroy your enemies.

It might not taste sweet, it might be your biggest nightmare,  it might look like you can’t survive a day more on what you are going through but just and just be reminded that the teacher is always quiet during the test. He is quite preparing your victory marks and all you have to do is just to hold on, he will show up and take through the fire again.

In the valley of our strongest decisions, let’s not give in to the adversary but rather trust the mighty hand of God because He will never let you stand even just one test alone.

God bless you for reading…Peace💖

Today’s fragrance: forget the former things.

Forget the former things beautifully written by Papberry, you do not want to miss reading it.
God’s blessings are new every morning, yesterday is gone today is another beautiful day, rise up and do something new.

Papberry

Scripture: Isaiah 43:18-19

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland”.

The only way to perceive things is to be conscious of present moments and not the past.
There are so many things God desires to do for us but we are just not allowing Him.

We’ve fixed Him in the limitations of our minds as we focus and glory ourselves in the things of yesterday, leaving the better opportunities today holds untapped.

Most of us ain’t making progress actually, but it looks as if we are because we have gotten very comfortable with where we are now. Others have just given up on progress because they’ve failed to many times.

We get to some stages in our…

YOUR BREAKTHROUGH IS DIFFERENT.

20170520_144047.png

Your role model’s breakthrough isn’t also the same way you are going to breakthrough in life. God has different places to put you for you to shine for the world to see. Your success story is different, it might take years but it’s differently going to emerge. Stop praying for things to happen or go the same way it did for others, because you are different and so is your breakthrough. 

Your breakthrough might come as slow as the movement of a tortoise, whiles the breakthrough for others might also come as fast than you can ever think of. But no matter what happens just don’t forget there is a beautiful breakthrough for you and your part to play is not to question God why there is a delay or why things aren’t going the way you want , your part to play is to pray, work hard and focus on God as He nurtures you for your time of overwhelming change.

See it doesn’t matter your  location, background or your physical being, when the time comes for God to lift you up in life, He is surely going to do so. Nothing can change the plans God have for your life, those plans were a promise to us and it only fails to prevail in our life’s when we do not focus on God. The more you keep  your focus on that big person in your society or that celebrity, wishing and wanting things to go the same way for you, the more you lose focus on the beautiful plans that God has set for you.

I just want to inspire you to believe in how God has plan your life to be. No matter how small the start is there is a beautiful breakthrough waiting for you. Don’t lose focus because, when God said wonderfully and fearfully have we being made, it wasn’t to a single person, it was to each and everyone of us created in the image of God.

You are God’s special creation and He knows how to make you shine for the world to see, don’t live in doubt of the goodness of the LORD because nothing can separate His love for you.

God bless you for reading….Peace💖

FOCUS ON ETERNITY.

20170419_171632

Colossians 3:1-2

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

So easily we lose focus on the most important thing we are to focus on as humans. We easily set our eyes off the eternal value Christ has assured us. When life gets bitter we focus fast on how to get it back on track so things would go good for us again and even when life gets better we still focus on how to make it more and more better for us. Completely we forget the eternal reward and the journey we need to embark on so we would reach there.

Our bible verse above teaches us that as believers we have been risen with Christ and therefore we are to seek for those things which are above where Christ sitteth and thus eternal life. Nothing we do on this earth matters most than focusing on eternal life. When our father in heaven appears for the second time, we won’t take anything we have worked here on earth with us.

Am not asking you to stop working or stop pursing great things here on earth because the bible actually teaches us in 2 Thessalonians 3:10b that If any man would not work, neither should he eat. To be working is important but for our works to distract us from focusing on eternity is more or else like being in a pit of danger.

No matter what we do here on earth, there is an eternal life that awaits us and we have two places to spend this eternal life at. Is either in hell or heaven, and neither of us here will even think of going to hell because is not a place you would even imagine yourself to be at for eternity, there is no joy in hell. So our only option now is Heaven and that’s the place we should focus on spending eternity at.

Ending this piece, I want to inspire you that whatever you do on earth to survive , you should never let it distract you from focusing on having an eternal life in heaven. To have eternal life is to believe in Jesus Christ the son of God. He is eternal life, accept Him, believe in Him and focus on the things He wants you to do so you can ascend with Him to Heaven when He comes back again.

God bless you for reading….Peace💖

GOD WON’T LEAVE YOU HANGING.

20170419_154548.png

This is quiet an interesting topic and many souls here on earth have perhaps once or twice taught they have been left hanging somewhere in their lives. Before we even delve much into this i want you to know the truth that, Whatever God starts, He completes.

The book of Philippians 1:6 teaches us that;

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

“If you belong to God through faith in Jesus Christ, nothing can separate you from him and His love for you”

God will never and ever forsake you and that was a promise to us. Let’s think about Joseph, He didn’t just rise up to become the prime minister of Egypt. He was despised by His brothers, put into a pit and so sadly sold into slavery in Egypt. He would have probably somehow find a way to kill himself to end everything but then Joseph knew God wasn’t going to leave him hanging in there forever as a slave, he knew every pain he was going through was meant for something big and precious.

Dear reader, God is not a man to fail His promises to you and neither will He lie in taking you to greater ends. If He has started with you, He is surely going to end with you.  He can cause all your success to happen within a second but He is a God of patience too, He wants to build you for your success not rush you for your success.

God has started with you, perhaps you have reached a tough point and there seems to be no way. Just hold on and wait for the one who paved way for you to start. Just don’t forget good things come to those who wait in the Lord. Do not rush your success or find different means to reach there, just allow God to complete what He has started with you.

I want to inspire you today to hold on to God in prayer as He works on your whole being, because God will never allow pain without creating something new to be born in your life. It’s all going to work for your own good, so if God has started with you, don’t rush it, Let Him finish with you.

God bless you for reading…#Peace💖

MOVING MOUNTAINS

Yeahhhh the birthday girl is back😊😊. My new age brought so much blessings that I didn’t want to pick my pen and paper again🙈 (so sorry I taught that way) I really had a nice birthday celebration and it was all possible because of the love you all showed me. God bless each and every one of you, for your wishes, messages and prayers. I am grateful and I appreciate it all. Waking up today I remembered am no more in my birthday month, it’s a new month and I got to inspire someone as they step into April and unravel the blessings it brought for them.

20170402_132206

Our inspirational topic today is moving mountains. These Mountains are the struggles, the challenges, failures and difficult times we go through in life. They come into our lives and leave us hopeless and down hearted. People even die in such situations forgetting there is a remedy to move these mountains.

Before we give in to saying there is no remedy to move those mountains, let’s read a scripture from our bible. Thus Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

A little amount of faith just like a mustard seed is what the Lord says we need to move those mountains in our lives. Is not running to our pastor nor praying with big words, its FAITH. What then is faith actually? According to Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence or assurance of things not seen.

You do not have to see your mountains moving with you naked eye before you believe God is working. God is always working for you no matter how high your mountains are, all He ask from you is for you to have a faith as small as a mustard seed in Him.

You can move your mountains and do beautiful incredible things with your faith as small as a mustard seed. Remember you aren’t the one fighting the battles, the battle is the Lord’s and with the Lord nothing is impossible. All things which includes your worries, struggles, pain, diseases, and failures are all possible for Him to change.

Don’t be little yourself, don’t put yourself in a small box. Just pick your mustard seed of faith and pray earnestly (you can read my piece on praying earnestly Here) to God because your faith does not rest on human wisdom, your faith rest on God’s power.

Don’t let your mountains move you, be the one moving your mountains. God loves you and I pray that the God of Abraham will shine His radiance love upon your life as we have entered this new month.

IT’S A NEW AGE🎂

Proverbs 9:11  For through wisdom your days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.

Dear Lord,

There is so much in my heart and mind that i want to tell you today, but this smile and joy on my face (picture above) tells everything I would have loved to say.

As I celebrate this day, no😊 as you have given me an additional year to celebrate🤗, i commit the needy, widows, orphans, people battling with diseases, those going through depression, hard situations and all love ones into your amazing care. I intercede on behalf of every blogger and seek for your wisdom upon their journey.

Lord to grandma, mum and dad, I continue to ask for your grace and mercies upon their life’s. So beautifully my mum and dad have never given up on me and as today marks the beginning of a new age, may you Lord continue to cause your joy, happiness, prosperity and long life to their beautiful marriage.

For the days, weeks, months and years ahead of me Lord, I ask for more of your grace upon my life, father plant my feet on higher grounds and order my steps in your path. Make me strong in your word as I face new challenges on my way forward in life.

Yeahhh Its a new age. New age I believe comes with new pack of blessings, so dear Lord once again make me strong as I step on the journey to unravel this new blessings.

It’s my birthday and this is my earnest prayer to you Lord…AMEN

❣HAPPY  GORGEOUS BIRTHDAY TO ME🎂

New Age, New Inspiration Coming.

A CHEERFUL GIVER.

20170319_190124.png

A cheerful giver is someone who gives out freely, joyously and with no conditions attached. A cheerful giver at his or her difficult times still feels the need to give or offer help to someone. A cheerful giver doesn’t give because he or she has been ordered to do so or because he or she is under compulsion. Above everything a cheerful giver gives from the heart and out of love.

So beautifully the scripture teaches us in;

2 Corinthians 9:7 that

[7] Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give ; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Now probably one might say looking at how the economy is today, becoming a cheerful giver would be hard to do. Well I would disagree with you because the bible or God never said that the economy has to be good before you can be a cheerful giver.

According to what you poseth in your heart is what the bible ask you to give. Giving cheerfully also doesn’t mean offering money to people only, giving can be in so many different forms. Any kind of help you give to someone out of love and from the heart makes you a cheerful giver.

A beautiful quote from Mother Theresa;

The person who gives with a smile is the best giver because God loves a cheerful giver.

Be a cheerful giver in your school, community, church, workplace or anywhere your help would be needed. Help others with the gift you have been given by God, because God’s gift are not only to bless us but for us to bless others too. Your cheerful giving can make the world a better place, your help can raise more cheerful givers in the world and your help can open more abundant doors to your life.

Finally as a cheerful giver, remember there is a promise from God to you. In Luke 6:30, the bible says

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

This is a beautiful promise from God to you. This week as you walk out there I inspire you to be a cheerful giver to someone, let’s be each others keeper and our father in heaven will also be a keeper unto our lives. God bless you as you step out to be a CHEERFUL GIVER.

THE LOVE IN FORGIVENESS.

20170316_105516.png

Forgiveness is Love. It first came from our Lord Jesus Christ and if His death on the cross wasn’t love then nothing can be called love. If you have ever told someone these beautiful words (I Forgive You) then that was an act of love. People hurt you badly but you were able to look into their eyes and forgive them, the only thing that can make that possible is Love.

Now what does our bible tells us about forgiveness. Let’s read something from Matthew 6:14-15;

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: [15] But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

God forgives us when we forgive others and if we do not forgive others, the same does He too. God wants us to learn the power of forgiveness.When sin erupted on this earth, forgiveness was the only redemption God gave us and it was because He loved us.

Sometimes it really get hard for us to forgive others, mostly when we have been through serious trauma or situation from the hands of others. We get stuck up in the “I would never forgive and forget world” but what we do not know is that the evolution of bitterness starts when we do not forgive and forget.

Today I want to inspire you on forgiveness. Don’t let it be a lifestyle or something you have become addicted to. Don’t erase your blessings from God with the behaviour of unforgiveness and bitterness. Put on the dress of forgiveness, it’s the first step in healing ourselves from hurt and hatred.

Talk to God on it, He is always ready to hear you out and offer the help you need. Don’t hold unto sin because Jesus Christ died to cleanse it all away. The only thing you have to hold unto is God, He is the father of love, lean on Him and be drown in Love.
