You saved me

You are the way
Yet I strayed
You are the truth
Yet I lied
You are the pillar
Yet I fell
Hopeless, helpless

Your love for me is not me-dependent
I trip, I fail
Lord,your hold is relentless
Whom you love,you save
Whom you save,you love

The world spins away
Yet your love lives till the last day
Your passion is unbeatable
Lord, your size is unimaginable
You’re God
You’re love
Thank you for reaching more
Thank you for saving me in time
I was a fool, but now, no more
I love you much.

Going through a phase only the Lord can see me through.
I write from my heart, true.

Live wisely

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalm 90:12(KJV Go Bible)

We won’t live in these bodies nor on this present earth forever, therefore,time is of great essence in our journey here.

How do you spend your time? How do you plan your day?
My friend, never make the mistake of assuming that you will always have time at your disposal, because the inevitable truth is, no human will.
God made you for a purpose. Find out what that is by asking the father in prayers and by searching the scriptures for guidance. Then work assiduously towards actualizing set goals and maximising resources at your disposal,including time.
Even as you go into the new week, never forget that every day you live takes you closer to the end of your stay here on earth. What will you be remembered for?
Apply wisdom, maximise time and live wisely.

God bless you.

God’s big plan

God’s big plan, you are involved.
He made you in his image, he put his breath in you. He looks after you and has even laid out your future.
Yet something isn’t right. SIN.
How did it come to be? This is how:
Your fore parents, Adam and Eve fell into sin. They disobeyed God and that brought a seperation between them, their children to come and God. It was a very sad event. That was how sin came to stay in the human nature, through their disobedience, and thus came death as well. Now, their disobedience was authored by the devil who suggested to Eve what was different from what God had commanded them to do. So, with sin in mankind, they can’t go back to God when they die unless they are devoid of sin as at when they die.

God’s love for mankind was too great for him to just let them perish. So, the principle of cleansing from sin by the shedding of the blood of animals came about( Why? See Hebrews 9:22). But this wasn’t enough. It wasn’t all lasting. It only covered iniquity for a while. God needed another plan, he had to provide a lasting solution to the problem of sin in the nature of man.
Then he came up with his big plan! A plan that cost him so much, yet he went ahead with it because he loves you even more. He has only one son begotten of himself and only he was righteous enough to be the permanent solution to the problem of sin in the human nature.
As stated earlier, sin was cleansed when blood was shed. Instead of the blood of animals as previously used, God offered the blood of his son as a replacement,to be the permanent cleansing from sin. His plan was that if you believed in his son,if you believe that he is from God and that his message of salvation is true, you will be cleansed from your inherent and acquired sins and be re-united with him. That was his plan, just as the words in John 3:16 states that whosoever believe in Jesus Christ, the son of God, will not perish but have everlasting life.
He loves you so much. He has been waiting for you, to take that step, to open up your heart and have faith in him. This sounds so good, yet even much more true it is. God’s plan was made to bring you back to him. Will you come to him today? Will you let go of that nature of sin and put on the new life that awaits you in the son of God?
Don’t let the devil deceive you, your situation is not hopeless. Jesus Christ is here, as your hope. Please, accept him.
You came from God,he will never reject or forsake you, if you come back to him repentant and honest. All you need to start is BELIEVE.
Are you ready to be reunited with God?

If you are ready to take that step, simply pray thus: ‘Father, here I am. Help me. Save me. I believe in your son and in his power to save me. Please forgive me and make me new. Thank you, Lord for your love.’

I’d love to tell you more, please kindly send me an email via lights_media@yahoo.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Stay blessed.

Who is your role model?

‘The godly people in the land are my true heroes! I take pleasure in them!’ Psalm 16:3(NLT)

Who do you take pleasure in? Who is your role model? It is disgraceful for anyone who goes to church to choose someone of questionable character as a role model. It is aberrational and non-conforming to the core values of christianity!
Only someone who has gone ahead of you in the journey of faith can help you move further, not someone who hasn’t taken a first step yet. You shouldn’t revere the doings of a person who does not respect the norms and values you hold sacred in the name of the Lord. You shouldn’t follow anyone who does not follow God.

‘You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.’ James 4:4(NLT)

Never have a role model whose lifestyle negates the model which Jesus Christ has laid down for us,his followers.

There are great individuals who had lived and are still living for God who are worthy of emulation. Read about them, learn from their examples, be inspired by their experiences and go on to do even greater exploits than they did. In music, mission works, miracles, statements of faith, philanthropy and a host of other facets of life, there are godly examples to be followed!

A role model is someone who you fashion your lifestyle after. Whose is yours fashioned after at the moment? Is God happy with your alignment with the person?
‘One of the greatest decisions everyone will have to make is the decision of who to follow, who to emulate.’
The decision of who to emulate is a crucial one in the journey of life. If at this point you realise that you have chosen wrongly, please make a drastic and lasting decision to break off such alignment.

Christ, being our ultimate role model,let’s live our lives to please God at all times.

Follow Christ, align with his sheep.

STAY BLESSED.

God appreciates his praisers!

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22:3(KJV Go Bible)

A respected clergyman in Nigeria said this, ‘when prayers fail,try praise’. Another amiable man of God also said ‘You can pray amiss, but you can’t praise amiss.’ These two statements establishes the potency and lofty heirachy of praise in the life of a christian.
God won’t be present where he does not want to be. To invite the presence of the father sometimes, you need to praise him exceedingly!God doesn’t just inhabit anybody’s praise,he inhabits the praises of the righteous(Those who live by faith). He appreciates those who praise him in spirit and truth; those who pour out their hearts to him in gratitude even when things are seemingly not ok. As they praise him, he blesses them even more.
In reference to a teaching by the General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye:If you desire an overflow of blessings, you have to bring to the father a sacrifice of overflowing praise.
If you are ready to do that, begin to thank him for all he has done, even right now.
Stay blessed.

Healer

He made the cells
He made the hairs
He sees it all
He calms the fever

He made the heart
He reads the mind
He cleanses the soul
And makes a strayer whole

He made the earth
He made the skies
He set the stars
And lights up our lives

He gave life to us
We let sin in
He has given us love
Let’s let life in

He is love
And love,wants us to be
Wicked hearts, hands of greed
So carry many
Self and pride in the air
Lawless breaks and iniquitous acclaim

Lord, heal our land
And cleanse our hands
Break the holds of sin
And to freedom let us cleave
Only you can cure man
Of this anomaly
Healer come
Healer, please

Our God, the defender

“And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.” Isaiah 4:5-6(KJV Go Bible)

Human protection strategies may fail, however God’s plans are always infallible. Money can’t buy anyone the kind of protection our God gives. Whoever he safeguards is genuinely safe.

He won’t leave his own to suffer nor watch them perish. As the apples of his eyes, he guards them absolutely.

Friend, so long you are in Christ, be reassured of the Lord’s defence. No matter how well the enemies prepare, they can never be ready to triumph over you. For the Lord is for you, so, none can succeed against you.

Keep living by faith, stay victorious.

Embrace fellowship

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25(KJV Go Bible)

Iron sharpenth iron. No one knows too much to be taught. Others need to learn from one’s experience as an older believer. All these reasons and more should spur one to always be in fellowship with other believers.
The Lord bless you even as you consider and follow Paul’s advice. You need others, others need you and we all need God.
Stay blessed.

Divine protection

“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121:4).

He is God and he keeps his words. When he says that you are safe with him,never doubt him. If he said it,so will it be.

“As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.” (Psalm 125:2).

Once you are hidden under his divine protection,please know that you have become extraordinary. The one thing that can spur the protection being lost is SIN. Run away from sin. It brings separation between God and man. If one loses God’s divine protection,one will be alarmingly vulnerable to attacks from the kingdom of darkness.

To stay safe, shun sin.

Stay in God, stay safe.

Stay safe, stay blessed.
