Hope you are having a fantastic week? I know I am, and i Thank God for giving me the Love, Joy, Peace and Happiness that surrounds me. I always ensure that I pray everyday, even if i am rushing out, I make sure i pray whilst driving or on the move. It is very important that we keep a relationship with God and reach out to Him on a daily basis. Even the bible instructs us to pray always. In 1st Thessalonians 5:17 which says ”Pray without ceasing”. Prayer creates a conductive atmosphere for excising your faith.
Prayer is also a weapon against the attacks of the devil. Ephesians 6:18 says ”Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”. Pray in the spirit always, giving yourself to prayer just like Jesus did.
So my friends, if you have been slacking and procrastinating your prayers… stop what you are doing right now and take a moment to pray to The Lord. God Bless
I thought to share the below image with you so you all remember what true love is. But first, the bible let us know what the true meaning of Love is on 1st Corinthians 13:4-8
”Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
Don’t forget that Our True Love is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Thank him on this glorious day for what he has done for us.
Happy Vals Day!!
An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son. He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, "I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne." He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds. In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout.
The boy had done everything but he failed. His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused. The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful. The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?" And each boy said "Yes, your majesty." The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.
The King asked him - "What did you do with the seed I gave you?" The boy said "I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout." The King went to the throne with the boy and said, "I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout. If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the
test.” We live in a society where people will do anything for success.
God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson. How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses,buy expensive cars with stolen money? How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs? HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END?
I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!! Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.
Power In Praying
First John 5:14–15 says, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
Therefore, we should never give up or back down. We need to keep praying. That is why Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7).
So brethren, never seize to pray any moment you get. I do it all the time, even whilst am walking, driving i use the opportunity to pray and prophecy to the lord. I know there is power in praying and the lord is hearing. Make it a habit that becomes who you are, and I can assure you will see what the power in praying can do in your life.
As you are reading now, say something encouraging to yourself and believe in it. Our Lord and Saviour will surely make that happen.
God Bless you all.
"Hold up my goings in thy path, that my footsteps slip not. Incline thine hear unto me and hear my speech, shew me thy lovingkindness and keep me as the apple of ur eyes, hide me under the shadow of ur wings". God will do abundantly more than u ask of Him IJN. Have faith and let righteousness be ur garment. Have a blessed week.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3 NIV
My Brothers and sisters, never give up when you are growing through trials, the Lord is testing your faith. I have been in this situation several times, and my advise for you is to continue to pray about it and never give up. Stay blessed
