4th April 2017 – THE ROADMAP TO BLESSINGS

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Mathew 6:33) There are different pre-requisites or paths to attaining purposed life’ goals. We are undauntedly tossed around with needs, desires and blessings. The choices we make and the decisions we take will largely determine the blessings that will follow us. When God appeared to Solomon in the dream, He asked Solomon to make a request. Solomon didn’t ask for the life of His enemies or the world riches; he asked for wisdom to govern God’s people. God was pleased...

3rd April 2017 – PRAYING FOR THE CHURCH

Dear brothers and sister, please pray for us. – 1 Thessalonians 5:25. Do you know that, as a Christian, you have an obligation to pray for your church? Prayers strengthen and establish the church of God and bring back those who are failing away in faith. Our local church (church leaders and brethren) needs our daily intercession to be guided against the fairy darts of satan in these evil days.

It was a small thing — a driver cut you off, a classmate insulted you, your spouse forgot to pick you up — but suddenly you’re swearing and yelling. Or perhaps you find yourself tempted by other actions and attitudes, like gossip or bitterness, that take your focus off God. These sorts of attitudes and actions are called “sin.” The word “sin” carries the idea of falling short of a target or missing the mark. When we do what we want instead of what God wants, we sin. When old habits and attitudes creep up, don’t get discouraged. You’re still God’s child. Sin,...

Can God Use Me?

Some people are adventurous. Not me. I enjoy a warm shower in the morning, good coffee and predictably comfortable living quarters. Besides I struggle with allergies and food sensitivities. Unknown food territory is a bit scary. For a time I was afraid God would send me to Africa as a missionary! That thought kept me from surrendering the control of my life to him, until I realized how much God loved me. If he would call me to Africa, he would give me the desire to go there, and I could trust him to take care of me. I wanted...
