What to do if Unemployment Hits

And the word of the Lord came unto him saying: get thee hence and turn thee eastward and hide thyself by the brook Cherith that is before Jordan. And it shall be that thou shall drink of the brook: and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord…..and it came to pass after a while that the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land-1 Kings 17:2-5,7

If your brook dries up

A brook is a place where God placed you. God may have led you there by his word, by his power or by his divine guidance. A brook is a place of still waters, a place where you are sustained. It could be a job or a business from where you were making a living. What you must realize is that God is the one who always leads people to their brook. As stated in Psalms 23, when the Lord the shepherd leads you, you never lack anything. He leads you beside still waters-the brook. And as revealed in the beginning bible text; Elijah the prophet was directed to the brook Cherith by the word of the Lord. The word of the Lord is one major way by which he leads. Many were led to their brook by divine guidance though they didn’t even know it.

In the midst of a depressed economy Elijah was supernaturally sustained. Ravens brought him bread morning and night and he drank of the brook. But suddenly the brook dried up. Somehow a young man or woman that has been enjoying a well paying job is suddenly laid off. A once thriving business suddenly experiences a downturn. Elijah in his own case waited for the word of the Lord again. The word of the Lord is God’s instructions from heaven.

Now if unemployment hits or you experience a business downturn know that its time to sit down with God to hear his word to you personally. Be attentive, listen in the spirit. Now retrace your steps, what things did you do before you got that job? Those who get breakthroughs again and again are spiritually vigilante. Elijah knew that he was directed to the brook in the first place by the word of the Lord. So when the brook dried up he did not go away hastily or begin to bind and loose demons; he waited for the word of the Lord again. In your own case maybe you prayed intensely, made a lot of moves talking with people, submitting CV’s, went for more training to acquire more skills, attended business seminars etc.

There was a time I experienced such a thing, I sat down to reflect and wrote down all the things I did that brought me the initial breakthrough; I remembered that I spent time serving in my local Church, I took whatever job I could lay my hands on at that time to keep my family going knowing that God hates idleness, even as I was praying. Then I raised an altar of sacrifice; this means I released some precious material possession into God’s work, and I waited while speaking God’s word over my life constantly. The breakthrough came unexpectedly and I was elevated to a higher and a better paying job to the glory of God!

In waiting for God’s next leadings don’t expect him to do it exactly the way he did it the first time; like for example Elijah waiting to be directed to another brook ‘Lerith’. But God did a new thing this time around. I see him do the same for you in Jesus name! God has a thousand and one solutions to your challenge. He said; ‘behold I do a new thing’-Isaiah 43:19. Elijah this time was directed to a poor widow that was about to eat her last meal and lie down to die in hopelessness, she and her son. God again wanted to prove to Elijah that the ravens that brought him bread at the brook was not his source. They were just a channel of blessings. In the same way your job or business is just a channel. God is your inexhaustible source. God may lead you to a most unlikely job or business and as you obey him there he would make you become great! God rewards obedience, he blesses steps of obedience. You may be thinking of how to get another job or bring your business back to life but God is thinking how to bring you to a place of massive financial breakthrough which others will benefit from.

So in a time of economic downturn or unemployment, know that God maybe ushering you into a new season; for the old must stop for the new to begin (see Hebrews 10:9). This is not the time to panic. Sit down and recollect the good steps you took before. Know that you are not trusting in men or looking unto them but unto God the word for that is where your help come from (see Psalm 121). He did it before and he shall do it again. Year 2017 is your season to enjoy mind boggling, ear tingling breakthroughs! Shalom!

Why Was He Born?

….I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly-John 10:10b

Many are celebrating to day the coming into the world of the savior Jesus the Christ. Even pagans join in the celebration. Some are celebrating by drinking to stupor, some celebrate by engaging in all forms of immorality. Many try to give themselves a good meal and spend good time with their families. But friend do you know why Jesus was born? In this journey of your life have you sat down to really try to know for yourself why Jesus came into the world? I for one do not celebrate Christmas per se but I celebrate Jesus every day for making me come to know the power of the living God Jehovah. In this short write up I’ll try to make the reader know why Jesus was born so that they can take advantage of the opportunity given to them to fulfill destiny.

Jesus is Word of God spoken through the mouth of the prophets of old, the word of hope, salvation and redemption. The word that was with God in the beginning with which he created the universe and all that dwell in it. He is the word that came to pass before now, that is being fulfilled now and that is to come. God still sends Jesus to us every day; how? You may ask, each time he sends you his word he is sending him your way. And what is the mission of Jesus in the world? He said: ‘I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly’.

His purpose has been made clear to you, that you can have life in abundance. Friend you can have life in abundance. To have life in abundance means to be filled with the fullness of God bodily. Many are breathing, moving about but they don’t really have life. Many have money which is good but they do not really have life. To have life means to be in charge, to be in control of the affairs of your life in every way. To have life is to live your life on purpose; not being a victim of the thief satan whose mission is to steal, kill and destroy. To have life means to always enjoy the powers of the world to come here and now. To have life is to live with a knowing that God will never fail you nor disappoint you.

Friend, are you just celebrating today because others are doing so? God is not religious neither does he judge men by their doctrinal beliefs. But he rewards those who seek him diligently (Hebrews 11:6). Your life is an opportunity to seek and hunger after Jesus the living word of God who loves you above everyone else. Who is not interested in your continuous suffering, sighing, wallowing in pain and distress. He desires that you shine and reign in life in your own path of life which his hands crafted exclusively for you (Psalm 16:11). Every star shines and differs from the other in glory (see 1 Corinthians 15:41).

He was sent by God to break the seals over the word (the bible) by his blood (see Revelation 5:1-5). So that by looking into the word constantly you come to know your divine right and who you ought to be in Christ. And you receive grace to become. As it is written ‘as many as received him to them he gave power to become the sons of God’ (John 1:12). There are so much treasures hidden in Christ that men especially the African race is yet to take advantage of (see Colossians 1:26-27). Christ is the wisdom of God that brings about elevation and development of man in every way; be it scientifically, spiritually, socially, mentally or psychologically. Are you a Christian? Stop playing church or religion. Get to know Jesus the word by studying the scriptures every day and listening to God-inspired bible teachers then your eyes shall be opened to see the treasures hidden in Christ Jesus. And as you take your part in him, you won’t wait for only Christmas day to celebrate God in him. Now you want to know Jesus? The starting point is scrolling to the top of this webpage now and click on ‘meet with Christ’ then follow the instructions there. The God that has made you see the end of this year shall make you see the end of 2017 and beyond! Shalom!

How to Come Out of Confusion

‘God is not the author of confusion but of peace’-1 Corinthians 14:33

Confusion is the opposite of understanding. To be confused means to be perplexed, not knowing what to do or the right steps to take per time. Confusion results in indecision, motionlessness, making blunders and stagnation. Confusion is of satan the devil; for God is not the author of confusion but of peace. Fear and confusion go hand in hand, for where one is the other could be found. Confusion results in disillusionment. It is a state of mind caused by partial paralysis of the mind. It is a negative spirit sent from the pit of hell to render destinies impotent. Confusion is caused by either one, some or all of the following:

-A lack of direction

-A lack of vision

-A prolonged deliberate refusal to make a decision on pressing issues

-Constantly revisiting issues in the mind after decisions have been taken concerning them.

The number one step in eliminating confusion is to eliminate fear. The fear of whatever you are afraid of must be eliminated. It could be fear of failure either in business ventures, academic pursuits, marriage or the fear of failing if you make a kind of move. Some people fear mockery, some cannot speak or express themselves for fear of making mistakes. You eliminate this kind of fear by becoming convinced that there is a higher being who loves you and is always ready to help you. You must bring yourself to trust always in this God. The character of God is that he is ever faithful, ever present, always trustworthy and will never flee and leave his sheep (you) stranded anytime. Then in addition to this attitude of trust; know that you are human and no human being is entirely free from failings and shortcomings.

In life, there is a natural phenomenon known as falling. This most times provokes laughter from onlookers. Laughter is an involuntary emotional reaction to a funny situation. So you too should learn to laugh even at yourself sometimes; even God the almighty laughs (see Psalm 2:4). Sometimes it is not that great people do not fall or make mistakes, it is just that they quickly take themselves up if they do so (see Proverbs 24:16). I have discovered that when you laugh at times it helps you replace in your mind the negative emotions of fear with courage and hope. And if there is no fear in your mind there cannot be confusion. Then your self-confidence stemming from your trust in God becomes a background for God to send you understanding always. For it is the inspiration of the almighty that gives understanding. Don’t take life too seriously. People who do so are rarely free from depression, anguish, frustrations and depression. You shall not be confused in Jesus name!

Also folks who think that their achievement in life is by their own strength may find themselves in great confusion if some calamity happen to befall them which beats that strength they trusted in all along. You are what you are by God’s grace. This was the mindset of the man Job that’s why he was never confused despite  satan brought him down to zero from such a lofty height in life; he was the greatest man from the orient in his days! If you acknowledge the fact always that you are what you are by God’s grace then in case the unpalatable happens, God’s grace is always sufficient for you. As you read this page, you are liberated from the plague of confusion in Jesus name! In the name of Jesus, the power of the Most High God helps you to take up your true sound mind status in Christ Jesus now, and so shall it be in Jesus name!

So in taking steps forward in life, always tell yourself as you do so, “I shall not see shame in Jesus name or “I shall come out successful and victorious in Jesus name’ And God shall make it happen for you so. And in case you do not have a personal relationship with the Lord scroll to the top of this webpage and click on ‘meet with Christ’. Go through the instructions there. Stay always blessed and on top of every situation. Shalom!

Reverting Negative Reports

Reverting Negative Reports

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it our elders obtained a good report”-Hebrews 11:1-2

The main reason the elders embraced the faith of God in Christ Jesus is for the purpose of reverting negative reports. Faith is the greatest force in the universe by which all who would sincerely take hold of it ultimately obtains a good report. No negative report is a final verdict with a man of faith. A doctor’s report showing that cancer or any other so called deadly disease is in someone’s body is not final; it can be changed but this depends entirely on the faith of the person concerned.

The negative report once spread around Nazareth where Jesus grew up; that Jesus was crucified and buried. But three days later that report was changed; it was reverted to ‘Jesus has risen from the dead’. Jesus is the starter and the finisher of this our faith. he demonstrated that the power of faith is limitless. Death is meant to be the end of story for any man, but not so with the man whose heart is faith-filled. With Christ in you, no matter the loss you may have encountered it could be restored.

I took time to study the dictionary meaning of the word ‘obtain’. I saw that it meant getting something by your effort. That’s why the scripture says to us to fight the good fight of faith; Satan showing you an x-ray of a diseased organ, and you standing on the word of God to declare an emphatic ‘No! for the scriptures says himself took my infirmities; if he took the disease then I don’t have it!’ as you maintain this belief in your heart and declare it boldly with your mouth without wavering, you definitely will obtain a new organ. By your faith you will purchase a brand new organ for yourself from heaven’s store house of spare human body parts. Faith looks too simple to be real or true especially to men who are worldly wise. This is the simplicity by which God confounds the wise.

Remember the story of the woman who had the issue of blood for several years (see Mark 5:25-34). I am sure she initially thought that her money would purchase for her the healing she needed. But the physicians of her day ate up all her money and she then realized that she would die without divine intervention. She settled down to look around and saw healing for free flowing through the garment of the Messiah just around her neighbourhood. She knew that she needed a different currency to purchase this healing; the currency of faith. she had such huge faith that she didn’t even bother to seek for prayer from the Master. She understood the two steps needed; believe first in your heart that what you desire to get from God is possible now, speak and then take steps of faith. She simply touched the helm of the garment of Jesus and took her healing. Mind you, many others were rubbing themselves against the Master but were getting nothing from it because they were not doing it in faith. The Master called her out to show to us what great possibilities are ours for the taking by applying faith.

Friends, don’t get me wrong, I am not against medicines or medical science but God ultimately is the healer; he is the one who gives conception to the barren or unfruitful. You won’t miss your own in Jesus name! Amen. It is not enough to just pray, you must pray the prayer of faith; for it is the prayer of faith that brings a good report and saves.

This faith I am talking about is not just positive thinking. It is belonging to the kingdom of light. You must receive Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour first after genuine repentance. You can do so now by scrolling up this webpage and click on ‘Meet With Christ’ then follow the instructions there. Shalom

You can divide the Red Sea

“The Lord shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace. And the Lord said unto Moses, wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward: but lift thou up thy rod and stretch out thine over the sea and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea”-Exodus 14:14-16

The believer who would conquer by faith must not draw back. God fights for those whose faith is on the line. Going through the bible text quoted above, reading it from the verse 10 of that chapter, you would discover that the children of Isaac lost heart when they saw the approaching armies of the Egyptians in hot pursuit of them and the red sea on their pathway. They immediately forgot all the mighty works that God did through the hands of the Man of God, Moses their leader. They began to blame Moses for even coming to deliver them from their bondage in the Egypt that had lasted for more than 400 years.

Beloved, our God is the Faith Master, you must learn from him if you have to go from victory to victory in your faith walk. In the midst of the fears and uncertainty in the hearts of the people, Moses who was operating from the realm of faith spoke in verse13 saying; fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he shall show to you today, for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall se them again no more for ever! Remember that the years Moses spent in the wilderness was to seek to know the ways or principles of God. For he made known his ways unto Moses, his acts to the children of Israel (Ps 103:7). Faith speaks or declares what they expect to happen next!

You can’t be mindful of this ugly situation and expect to enter the new and the better, “And if truly they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country….” The power of faith can change any situation. Faith imparts strength to do the extraordinary; “for through faith Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed (see Heb.11:11). Sarah physically was not a young maiden; she was already in menopause but she received the needed strength to carry a baby because her faith was active.
The faith Moses demonstrated at that point saved that nation; and God spoke up in Verse 15. God was surprised that Moses was praying to him; And the faith God spoke as if the red sea was not even there; he said to Moses ‘tell this people to go on forward!”

Friend, the only way faith knows to go is forward! You may be experiencing sickness in your body, God expects you to go on forward to healing! You may have suffered loses, go on forward to your restoration. No red sea can stop you with God standing by you. God gave Moses an instruction that would sound absurd to many. He said to him; “you stretch forth your hand over that sea and divide it!”

Friend what God told Moses was recorded for us to hear and do the same! He has put born again Christians here to effect the change that pleases heaven. Jesus did not leave his blood here on the earth for nothing; that blood is to connect you to the same source of power which men like Moses had access to: the power of the Holy Ghost. God knows you can divide that red sea standing on your way and walk through on dry ground. Your red sea symbolises that seemingly insurmountable obstacle that may be on your way to your next level. When you face it with a heart full of the faith of God in Christ Jesus, the sea will see the great God behind you and flee! The rod in your hand is the word of faith in your mouth! Declare what you want to see happen for you. I can hear someone somewhere reading this declare boldly from their sick bed saying “In less than seven days I shall be out of this bed!” I join my faith with your own and say “so shall it be in the mighty name of Jesus. Expect to see it happen for you; leave the how for God to handle.
You are reading this and you want to operate in this realm of triumphant faith, the first step is to come to the living risen Saviour Jesus. Make him your personal Lord and saviour. Why not scroll up to the top of this webpage and click ‘Meet with Christ’, then follow the instructions there. Stay on God’s side; the winning
