What Do You See?

Your vision for yourself will ultimately become your reality, what you see is what you become. So, what do you see?

No matter the trials or challenges you face, push through it by God’s grace! Like the prophet Jeremiah in the Bible, we are prepared for our purpose from the moment we were conceived.

Stop describing yourself by your physical composition or limitations; call yourself what God has called you. When you begin to see yourself as what God has called you, speak it out, let your words agree with the revelation you have.

The word of God is powerful & transformative but your mental picture has to align with it for you to walk in its reality, our mindset and what we see internally is very key, it produces the realities we see in our lives.

What you see constantly, you become. You don’t have to struggle, it is a principle. Once you get revelation & a picture of your desired future, hold on to it. Even if you waver in faith sometimes, hold on to it!

Displace every negative picture with the word of God, don’t be discouraged, if you believe and hold on in faith, the word of God will replicate itself in your life.

Abraham, the Father of faith had his doubts too but He was reassured by God and eventually got the fulfillment of the promise. God asked Jeremiah, “What do you see?” because He needed him to see the right things so that He could take him to new level

You have to keep the word of God before you constantly, meditating on His promises to see its manifestation, the enemy tries to discourage and distract us from meditating & envisioning our future in God but we have to be mindful.

Circumstances may arise that makes us doubt God’s promise, don’t stay in doubt, bring back the picture of your revelation! The woman with the ‘issue of blood’ in the Bible envisioned herself as healed, she reached out in faith and was healed.

Prayer clarifies your revelation and keeps you connected to the source of the vision – God. As parents or custodians of young people, we need to be there for them and help them become grounded them in the Word of God.

God made us in His image and gave us dominion. Your dominion is dependent on the image you hold on your heart. This season, align your mental picture with God’s design, you will begin to live an amazing life.

Ask God to give you an accurate picture of your future, let it be stamped clearly on your heart. I pray for an enlarged vision for you and grace to walk in the reality of God’s promises to you.

Love, Not Judgement..

The world today is filled with so much harshness and judgment. Many live in fear of saying the wrong thing or making the wrong move. Most people would rather keep silent with their issues or weaknesses than risk being judged or criticized harshly.

In the Bible (John 8:8), Jesus came to the rescue of a woman facing harsh judgment, this could have been anybody male or female. Some men brought this woman before Jesus, ready to stone her to death after she was caught in adultery.

They wanted to know what Jesus thought should be done to her. The law gave the punishment for adultery as stoning to death and they were hoping he would say something they would be able to use against him.

If He agreed to stoning her, He would have gone against His own message of love and forgiveness.. If he said to release her, He would be guilty of condoning adultery and going against the law, a treasonable offence.

Jesus, knowing the bad intent of their hearts paused for a little while possibly thinking of how to handle the situation. Like Jesus, pause and think when faced with knotty issues so you can speak words of favor and judge aright.

Jesus eventually looked up at the crowd and declared that he who was without sin among them should throw the first stone, he didn’t pass judgment on anyone rather he confronted the mob with the reality of their own weaknesses & humanity

In a nutshell, he told them that no one is perfect and everyone is a candidate to receive mercy both from God and men! Strangely enough, she was caught in the act of adultery yet the man involved had somehow escaped.

One by one the mob dispersed as each person realized that they weren’t perfect either. Because of Jesus’ wisdom and kindness, the woman received a second chance to make things right in her life.

Are you living under the weight of condemnation from past mistakes? Run to God, confess your sins, repent and receive the grace to start afresh.

Your life doesn’t have to end because you have made mistakes, we all have! God’s grace and mercy is available for you if you come to Him. He loves you and does not condemn you.

When you have received mercy and kindness, be merciful and kind unto others also, don’t be like the servant who received the mercy of his master but refused to show mercy to a fellow servant afterwards.

Let us reach out to others with hearts filled with compassion and love. Don’t be quick to pass judgment on others, rather give them the benefit of doubt and show them mercy.
Your act of love and mercy might be the saving grace for someone on the brink of despair.

May our hearts be filled with love and compassion for the hurting now more than ever before in Jesus name.

Make A Difference

The Bible tells us that “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1), this is a very important season for our nation, the church and the world at large.

We cannot afford to be complacent and uninterested in what is going on around us. It’s time to arise and gain clarity, focus and receive fresh direction on how to produce maximum impact in the days ahead.

This is the season to re-discover and give yourself fully to your divine purpose and assignment, It’s a time to step-up up your love walk, life goals and pursuit of purpose.

Let’s run the race before us well and make a tangible difference by living a life of influence. There is confusion and pain in the world today and people are desperate for answers to burning issues.

The love of God is the answer to life’s hard questions; this should be our message in these difficult times. God wants to love and heal people through you and me because we are His eyes, legs and heart.

We are God’s representatives on the earth and we need to be equipped to do His work.

Look around you, make a difference.

Grooming The Next Generation

Godly values may seem ‘old school’ and sound ‘old-fashioned’ but they are timeless and the only way to a successful life. Share your faith and teach the young people around you Biblical principles from an early age, a lot of the rot we see in the world today can be traced back to dysfunctional family systems.

Be a praying parent, it’s a joy to have children call us and share victories and prayer points. Be open to discussing and talking about the issues in their lives.
Don’t assume you know what they know or don’t know, especially with the evil going on in the media and on the internet, be a prayerful and watchful. Be an active part of your children’s lives and growth.

Talk to your child before he or she begins to encounter evils such as pornography. Have those conversations upfront.

We as adults should model Godly behavior and values such as integrity and delayed gratification to our children. Don’t take a one-size fits all approach to parenting, assuming all your children are alike.

Take time to study each child’s personality, likes and dislikes…Get into their world, don’t just give out instructions and commands, be a worthy role-model to them.

Pray together with them. If you cannot have morning devotion, then take advantage of technology or say a word of prayer during the ride to school. Make every moment a teachable moment. Bring up conversations that channel them towards God.

While watching a movie with them for instance, ask questions that bring God into the picture, share your stories and experiences. Let them know you were once young like they are and you understand how they feel.

Involve your children in community service at church or in your neighborhood. Encourage them to give and show kindness.

Teach them how to save, how to make good friends and how to say no to negative peer pressure. Prepare them for the world out there. They will succeed if they are prepared.

May God give us the grace and wisdom to groom the next generation for greatness.

In His love,
