My Great God

The foundation of the earth was set by you
The limits of the sky you ordered
The layout of creation was a work of your imagination
You spoke and no one countered
How great you are!

Truth always comes from you
Love is what you have shown man how to give
Patience even when your subjects err is seen in your rule
Indeed, you are, great my King

Let the earth resonate with one rhythm
Let the skies move in a uniform march
Let all vegetation stay still
And worship the King
The ageless one who doesn’t sleep

No one owns anything that is not yours
No one gives anything outside your creation
You are the King who can’t be dethroned
Ancient of days, stronger than the future’s hold

By mercy you choose your own
In love you lead their path
Why you chose me is beyond my understanding
My identity in you is the greatest of my possessions

May my bones drum on your praise
May my flesh spread as carpet for you to tred
May my mind be your writing pad
May my voice be your chiming bell
May my life be a pleasing sacrifice
That fills your house with scents of dedication
That even to the last of my children
May my house be your chosen nation
Forever and ever and ever
And ever, my great God

The Mind of a King

mind-of-christ-pic

‘For, “Who can know the lord ’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.’ 1 Corinthians 2:16 NLT

Believer, we have the mind of Christ!  We have the mind of King! We do not have failing minds!

No.

We do not have minds roped with cowardice and anguish. We do not have minds that cannot see beyond the present.
We have the mind of the unlimited- the mind of Christ!

A King’s mind must be sound and clear so that he can deliver stellar administration; so that he can lead his people with precision and wisdom.

As a joint – heir with Jesus, your mind is that of a king. So, it is an anomaly when the mind within now appears to be suffocating under intense pressure from the devil.

You can understand the most difficult things; You can see tomorrow as God shows you; You can interpret the most puzzling of riddles when you act in faith and use the mind of Christ within you.

When you are operating with the mind of Christ, excellence is inevitable. People will see results in the physical and respect the soundness of your God-led decisions.

Just like Daniel, you will be celebrated and distinguished!

However, it seems the mind is sometimes plagued by so many nonprofitable things that it will appear almost impossible for one to enjoy such mind clarity  as described above.

What then do you do?

You have to do as your mentor did! Do as Jesus did!

Yes, do what he did in the event seen in Mark 4:35-41! Speak to the storms whenever they want to attack your mind!

Speak with the authority of the King and the peace you ask for will be given. Have no fear or doubt, simply speak in faith! The storms will cease to be,then calmness and clarity will be restored.

Keep confessing it out loud to yourself, ‘I have a sound mind. I have the mind of Christ. I have the mind of King.’

Keep saying it until it becomes deeply seated in your mind as the truth.

Keep confessing it until it becomes your reality!

Once you have the mind of Christ, what then do you do it?

You feed it with the word of God! Read with spiritual hunger, thirst, dedication and passion.

And as you get more word – filled,  the stronger will your faith and your use of your Christ-owned mind be!

Stay royal!

God bless you more!

Try again

Try again

‘Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.” Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.” Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’ 1 Kings 18:43-44 NLT

Why quit because you tried once and it didn’t work out?

As long as you are sure that God is with you on it, try again!

Yes, refill and try again.

If God has given you a word guaranteeing success, he will surely fulfil his word. Do not let setbacks deter you or blow a mist on your God-given vision.

In the text above, Elijah had to send his servant seven times to go and locate the sign of the rain. Six times yielded no sign. At the seventh time, the sign came through!

This shows that there could be days when your expected outcomes might not surface. Such events are not pointers to failure! Rather, they should be signs that you have to hold on tighter to the vision and not lose it!

By faith, you must see your expectations coming to fruition! Live by faith, and not by sight(2 Corinthians 5:7).

Elijah consistently believed in his God-given vision and he held on in faith even when the outcomes proved otherwise. You should do the same! Don’t quit! Victory is yours with Jesus!

If you hold on in faith and refuse to look back, one thing is sure- success!
Have the winning mentality,that with Christ, you are not just about to win, you have already won!

That’s true!

The rain came eventually came for Elijah and God was glorified. Your gains will eventually come too, as you reject disbelief and hold on in faith.

Stay motivated and don’t lose the vision.

With God, you are successful.

So, try again!

In Due Season

Due season

‘The lord kept his word and did for Sarah exactly what he had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God had said it would.’ Genesis 21:1-2 NLT

God keeps his word. If he promises you anything,as long as you stay faithful to him and shun immorality, he will fulfil it.

God is not human,so the terms of his promises are not human,especially the time of fulfilment. Isaiah 55:8 makes us understand that his ways are completely different!

Usually,the human mind gets agitated when the season of its expectation does not yield the expected. It begins to turn to worry,fear,anxiety and other unsettled emotional states.

To remain in rest while awaiting the fulfilment of God’s promise to you,you must see the fulfilment from a spiritual angle. Trust God to give you the expected in the best season.

Do not panic. God has it all figured out. I tell you, he knows when the best suits you.
Equip yourself with the word of God, by standing firm as Paul has admonished in Ephesians 6. Rebuke every word that speaks against your expectation in God.

Exercise your faith even as you wait!

How do you do this?

Through thanksgiving!

Keep thanking God for the expected and surely, as he did with Sarah, he will fulfil his promise to you in due season.

Stay expectant!

God bless you!

SPEAK LIFE

Speak-Life

The language of a christian should be remarkably different!

It should reverberate the articulate and meticulous nature of our God! A Christian should not speak carelessly. Christians should have good and non anti-God reasons for saying the things that they say.

As social beings, our input into social discourse is mostly got from the inputs we get from our social environment. Our store of words is essentially made up of what we hear others say and  see others do, either through live motions or reported speech. Therefore, a lot of times, what a person is surrounded by is what he or she reproduces in speech.

To speak in God’s way, you must surround yourself with God’s channels of communication with you.

The Bible. Godly Music. Morally sound films. Light-giving books. Spirit-buoyed speeches.

Stop listening to those secular songs that projects messages of vanity, profanity and all forms of immorality. Yes, stop today!

Stop watching movies that are aimed at disseminating messages that are based on ungodly themes like magic, sexual perversion, obscene language and more.

Stop reading books that fill a person’s mind with utter darkness and slavery through messages based on sexual immorality, unforgiving vengeance, chronic materialism, and other ungodly themes.

Do not make hand gestures and other signs linked with satanism and profanity.

As a Christian, your way of life must not feature the above. Your language will be different and godliness-aligned when your inside is filled with God’s messages through the consumption of godly information via the Bible, Holy Spirit-inspired books, morally sound movies and other God-friendly media products.

It is also important that you continuously seek to engage like-minds in uplifting conversations.As a light, seek to speak to lights.

‘Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,’ Psalm 1:1(NIV)

A Christian must not sit around and imbibe godless chatter with those who swear and use profane language without care. No.

‘Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33(NIV)

Jesus Christ has rightly said:

‘A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.’ Luke 6:45(NIV)

Be full of light. Speak right. Speak Christ’s way. Speak Life.

Stay speech-clean and all-round holy!
