God loves us soo dearly,He wants the best for us. He wants us to grow in our walk, and He will pull the things down which causes leads us away from Him. He wants us to get closer,which may mean moving from somewhere or walking away from someone. Because he has bigger better plans, ( jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. God has bigger better plans, if that person walks away because they want to continue disobeying God and you want to draw nearer to God, Go God’s way. God knows ur future ahead, and will be with you . God loves you
Who are going to listen to ? God or the devil? God who created you and loves you and has provided for you and has protected you and has a future for you. And the devil who wants to steal kill and destroy. The father of all lies. Who’s word are you obeying? Because obeying God will not just give you life,but you will be rewarded with everything He has promised and build a strong relationship with Jesus. You will also be happy because God will ensure you are, living in pain and shame and bondage to sin is not happy, it destroys you and thats what the enemy wants. Everything will work out for your good if you trust and obey God and you will receive double blessings for all your trouble.
When you are about to do something Stop and think about the outcome. Will God be happy with this? Is it in obedience to His word? Stop there if its a no.Because there will be consequences if you go ahead. One question Eve and Adam never asked themselves was is God going to be happy with this? And isit in obedience with His word? And they never thought of the consequences. God said they would die, but God is so kind He didn’t kill them, but it led to a broken relationship between them and God and difficulties which are still going on today. So the first step is always realizing that God is everywhere and knows everything, so even if man doesn’t see, God sees and judges. You did not create yourself, from your eyes to your finger nail. God created you , are you going to listen to almighty God who formed you and in control of your very breath , or the devil or who hasn’t done anything good and did not create you?
In the garden of eden God didnt just create the tree of the knowledge of Good and evil but he also placed the tree of life. And the tree of life gives an eternal life. Every obedience to God leads to life. But the enemy didnt stay around the tree of life, he stayed around the disobedient tree. Which tree are you drawing to? Because as long as there are people and things to convince you into disobedience to God, there are also people and things to convince you into obedience with God. God gave adam and eve choices and we all have choices to. Which tree are you drawing close to?
God didnt need anything to make the whole earth and heaven. Look how massive the earth is. We cant even be on every place on the earth. God is mighty and allpowerful He can make greatness out of nothing.we need materials to make things. We need ingredients to make food. We need trees to build houses .But God almighty needs nothing to make everything. Can any of us make even a grain of sand out of nothing ? No we cant
Because God is everything. Everything came from Him and without Him was nothing made. Everything came from God, He is the all-powerful genius creator. Thats why He says we should seek Him first, and all other things shall be added. Because he brought into existence everything. And why seek the things that Did not make themselves : money, houses, people,sucess, instead of God almighty who created them.
God who made us, the earth, the sea, animals , trees, light and darkness, moon and sun , God who made everything . He is the I am that I am. Everything around us exist as a result of God’s magnificent power and authority in creation.
God doesnt need you to have everything to see the breakthrough. He made greatness out of nothing. He can make a way out of no way. He makes the impossible to us possible. He made everything with His own power and authority, therefore at His command He shall supply all of your needs, you have wisdom and knowledge, you are the head and not the tail, you are more than a conqueror and He will make a way for you.
Something so amazing about God is that He created everything before creating us. God loves you so much. Before creating the world and all the marvelous creation He thought of me and you. He made sure there was food, water, animals, day ,night, trees , air, he made sure there is beyond provision. He didn’t want us to come on this earth without everything been ready. Because He knows what we need . So God who provided everything before creating you, also knows what you will need in the future ahead and has got it all planned out and will provide.
There is victory after every struggle. And the latter (victory )will be greater than the former experience. In John 18:37 Jesus said to pilate; You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause i have come into the world, that i should bear witness of the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice. ) There is a purpose behind every difficult experience. That experience is to accomplish your purpose and build the character leading you into your purpose.God knows who you are and His word says who you are. Therefore no matter what you face let God’s saying and voice supersede every other voice. Confirm and declare to yourself and let your self know who you are. Because no matter what you are facing knowing who you are, will not allow circumstances to change you. Before Jesus was crucified He may not have physically looked like a king. But that did not stop Him from saying He is a king, because Jesus knows who He is. Don’t let your circumstance, how you look now, tell you who you are.Because that is not who God says you are. You are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you.(romans 8:37),you are far from oppression and fear does not come near you. You are God’s child (John 1:12), you are justified and redeemed ( romans 3:24), You have wisdom, santification and redemption( 1 corinthians 1:30), you are blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places( ephesians 1:3), the peace of God guards your heart and mind. (Phillipians 4:7) Its not about what people say or what people think, It is about what God Almighty who formed you is saying. God created you and even before your very being was formed He thought of you. (Jeremiah 1:5 ;Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”) How can you allow people who did not create you, form you, protect you,deliver you tell you who you are? Nomatter what you been through, the mistakes you made, how close the people who put you down were to you. They did not form you. They did not bring you into existence. They didnt choose when you were born and when you will leave this earth. They may have said and done things that really hurt. But thats not who you are. You are God’s child. Knowing who God says we are, is knowing who we are. Just think about anything like a phone or laptop. The person who knows the potential and the function of that thing is the person who sat down, planned and manufactured the thing, so if anyone else says something about the gadget thats not true, the manufacturer can have the answers to it and tell the truth. God is our creator and knows us, so even if someone lies about who you are, its not true because God’s word does not agree to it. (Psalm 100:3 Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.)
In john21: 2
The disciples decided to go out to fish, but the bible says when they went they caught nothing.
Have you searched for something in life you could not find? Or faced a situation which looked impossible in your eyes? Or waited for the results but still haven’t seen the breakthrough yet?
The disciples fished at night and didn’t catch anything. Im sure they didn’t need the fish just as a meal but also supported their living. But they didn’t give up, in the morning they were still there. They were patient. Dont give up on your situation or think its never going to turn around, have hope, keep believing that there’s hope in the morning, because God will come through. Your time will surely come
The bible says in the morning Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not recognise Him. Sometimes we keep thinking where is God when life seems so bitter? when my cry has been consistent and the situation seems like its not turning around?
Even though they could not recognise Jesus, he called out to them. Even though you may wonder where Jesus is in the midst of situations, He recognises you and wont give up on you. . He is calling out to you, he wont leave you or forsake you, He wants to lead you to the interview room, to that exam, out of the tough situation, out of the abusive relationship, out of addictions. But you need to believe and understand and be consistent in seeking Him and let Him know what’s troubling you. Jesus loves you and will deliver you from fear, anger,lust, confusion but most importantly He will give you strength to face the situation and come out victorious. His strength is made perfect in your weakness.(2 corinthians 12:19).
Jesus told the disciples to throw their net to right side of the boat and the fishes they caught were so many .God is speaking, even though we are not realising His voice, and the only way is not just believing in Him and praying but reading His word and asking for His strength to enable us to walk in His obedience. (Jeremiah 29:13
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.)
Jesus will lead you on your path in life, when life gets tough He wont leave you He will lead you. He will direct your path. This doesnt mean you wont stumble, but He is there ready to pick you up when you do. This doesnt mean you won’t face issues in life, but you are assured that you will overcome and He will work everything out for your good.God loves you.
Glory be to God almighty
