Pay Attention!

Pay attention to the Holy Spirit this year so you can see God’s glory at work in your life.

Most of us wait for spectacular things to happen in our life for us to be thankful to God. To God, nothing is small or big, and that is why i personally believe that when God is ordering our steps towards our destiny, His will for us, most times it sounds ridiculous. We have gone to school and believe in thinking.

Our intellect seems reasonable and reliable because it states facts and common sense. No wonder most people live through life struggling because of disobeying God and not living in His perfect will for them.

Isaiah 48:6

You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? “From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. 

I urge you to be ‘foolish’ this year by obeying God’s guidance in your life so you can experience a peaceful and content life in His rest. Quit fasting and praying unceasingly for God to change His mind from what His purpose for you is and put your desired purpose for your life in motion. Just ask God in all humility to reveal His purpose for you.

Whatever you do, do not question Him, simply take the step He will order you to and you will be amazed at how His pleasing and perfect will for you will start unfolding. These two scriptures say so much. Please meditate upon them. Time is a talent given to us by God, and it is wasted and lost when not used according to His plan. If we have lost our time until now by insisting on doing what is not in His will for us, we must double our diligence from now henceforth. Thousands on their deathbed would gladly redeem time at the price of the whole world if only they could get a second chance. You are here now, make a decision to trust and obey Him so you can redeem your time by living a purposeful and fulfilled life to the glory of His mighty Name!

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT)

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make use of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

A Revelation

It is a new year for those of us who are alive are truly blessed to be here at a time such as this. Many of us have received numerous forwards with a prayer on social media from family, friends or acquaintances. We have forwarded same too.  Our prayer is for a better year with old problems erased. A brand new beginning.

But, are we praying earnestly for a fresh start? Have we repented our sins, apologized to those we have wronged and done to others what we would want done to us? Jesus answered that we should forgive seven times seventy a day…we all know that no one can sin against another those many times a day. So the secret is that you forgive endlessly.

If you have been wronged by your mom and are holding her in your heart, let her go. As long as she did not kill you at birth or terminate you as a feotus, forgive her. Forgive your child no matter what they did to you. Forgive your sibling or your ex boyfriend. Forgive your ex husband or ex wife who mistreated you and left you. Forgive your boss who makes your workday unbearable. Release everyone including your rival. Forgive the person who infected you with that disease knowingly.

Your heart is not meant to carry people, you are overworking it and it will soon succumb to high blood pressure. Why do you want to suffer a stroke before you realize you are overloading your human system by doing what only God can do? Only God can avenge you and He does it in style by setting a table for you before your enemies….believe me He does that!

You are eating lots of chocolate to get over your ‘lonely’ life caused by an ungrateful ex, your abusive partner or to cool down from what your family did to you years ago…you will become overweight and put your organs in trouble. Why drink yourself to a cancer because of bitterness? Why prostitute yourself until you become infected in the name of getting back? Our body is the temple of God. 

When we pray, God looks at our hearts, however much offering or sowing or fasting you do, without letting go of others, God will still give you time to make amends before He will reveal your purpose to you. Before He gives you that miracle, that breakthrough that healing that you so much desire. That promotion at work.

Learn not to make a big issue out of everything. Stop going out of your way to find trouble it is easier to avoid trouble than it is to get out of it. When any harm is done to you, examine whether you have not done as bad to others. Ask the Holy Spirit to convict you, He is our standby helper, He will reveal to you. Do not think you are wiser in your own eyes. Wisdom Is God, yet He forgives everything. Do not be over wicked to hold onto everything, the only place you are sure to end with that attitude is in an early grave!

Ecclesiastes 7:16-17 Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise– why destroy yourself? Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool– why die before your time?

Ask God to enable you to release people. He will guide you into repentance.

(Please note that this message is through a revelation. I was instructed to write it as it was given to me.)

Jesus!

What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear, what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations, is there trouble anywhere, we should never be discouraged, take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful, who will all our sorrows share, Jesus knows our every weakness, take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a Lord of care, precious Saviour still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer. Do they friends despise forsake thee, take it to the Lord in prayer, in His arms He will take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there!

May you desire to have Jesus as your best friend, may you trust in Him, may you obey Him in this brand new year, 2017 and you will be amazed at how peaceful and content your life will be. May He enable you in the name of Jesus Christ!
