ANVIL OF GOD'S WORD.

July 23, 2017 0
ANVIL OF GOD'S WORD.


Last eve I passed beside a blacksmith’s door
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime:
Then looking in, I saw upon the floor
Old hammers, worn with beating years of time.

“How many anvils have you had,” said I,
“To wear and batter all these hammers so?”
“Just one,” said he, and then, with twinkling eye,
“The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.”

And so, thought I, the anvil of God’s word,
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon;
Yet though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unharmed . . . the hammer’s gone.



AUTHOR OF THIS POEM HAS BEEN ATTRIBUTED TO JOHN CLIFFORD, 1836-1923.

ANGEL CAME

July 19, 2017 0
ANGEL CAME

When i was 8 or 9 years as of the time of this story i want to share with you.

My siblings and i got back from school and informed our mother of payment of fees. That the deadline was set for the next day and failure to pay our fees will lead to us being sent out of school.

My widowed mother with five children calmly said she has heard us but first we should go and inform our Father. Our father here did not mean our biological father but our heavenly Father.

We went into our room and knelt and told God that we needed our fees to be paid. And we said Amen with so much faith believing He has heard us. And we came and told my mum that we have informed Him.

She asked us what God said when we told Him. And we said "nothing".
And she said lets wait and hear from Him.

My mother had no money to pay our fees. 
That night, i heard her crying and praying and praising God for the money He is going to send the next day for our fees.

Morning came. She dressed us up for school. Gave us breakfast and stepped out to get us snacks for school.

There was a knock on the door. 

I opened and there was a man at the door.

He asked if my mother lived here. We answerd yes.

And he said "give this to her"

We asked him for his name and he said he is Angel that God sent him.

Honestly, we were shocked.

Mum came back almost immediately and we told her that God sent an angel to bring this to her.

She ran out to meet who came. And turned out he was one of our church members.

Who said God instructed him to bring the money to us that morning.
Our fees was paid miraculously and there was leftover for other stuff.

I ask, where is our faith and trust in God as christians?
We have lost it somehow.
We have allowed the issues of life to overwhelm us. Why?
Have you forgotten who your heavenly Father is?
The earth is His and the fullness thereof.
Have you not seen in the Bible that God shows up when situations are tough?

I beg us, if we are born-again christians, begin to go back to God for answers. Tell Him everything that bothers first before any other person hears of it.

And if you are yet to give your life to Jesus Christ, this is an oppurtunity for you to do so.

God truly cares for us. He hears us when we call on Him in spirit and in truth.

Call on God today and believe without doubt in your heart that He has heard you.

God bless you.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene, I noticed footprints in the sand,
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, 
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I follow You
You would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during 
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
You have not been there me? "

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have 
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you.

PRAYER AND TRUST

July 05, 2017 0
PRAYER AND TRUST
PSALMS 62:8

"Trust in Him at all times; he people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. (KJV)

"O my people, trust him all the time. Pour out your longings before him, for he can help! " (TLB)


"Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety." (CONTEMPORARY BIBLE)



You can't open up to someone you don't trust.

Likewise, you can't pray to a God you don't trust.

Many of us only pray and trust God only when things are going well and when things aren't so well, we lose our trust and become shaken.

We even wonder if God will hear you if you tell Him what's bothering you.

But, God is telling us to "trust in Him at all times" . "Just trust me in the good and in the bad time"s. 
Did He not say He will be with you in times of trouble? ; all He needs from you is trust.

WHAT IS THIS TRUST?

* Absolute dependency on God.

* Absolute confidence on God. 

* Total believe on God without wavering.

* Not having option B; you just believe God will work something out anyhow.

He said "I Am the God of all flesh is anything to hard for me?" No!!!

Lets go back to Psalms 63:8.

"... Pour out your heart before Him"

Many of us pray or talk to God reserving some parts of our prayers. Why? 

"OK let me tell Him this one and forget about this other one after all, He sees my heart; agreed!"

He wants to hear from you, ask and it shall be given to you.

Read what Psalms 37:5 says:

"Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass"

Talk to God like you talk to you earthly father. Tell Him what's bothering you, how and where its so itching and hooking you. 

He knows but tell Him everything.

Don't hold back for He wants to reason out the situation with you. Read JOB 13: 3 and ISAIAH 1:18.

Finally, God is a refuge, a place of safety. 
When you pray, trust Him to help out and bring it to pass. 


God Bless you and you begin to trust Him more. 

Amen!

... PLACE OF SERVICE.

July 03, 2017 0
... PLACE OF SERVICE.
Your breakthrough should never take your place of service to God.

Be blessed by God in what ever capacity He has blessed you with. But, be humble before Him because your achievements mean nothing to Him; instead, your constant service to Him with all you have achieved in life means so much to God.

Ask yourself, what is my place of service in the house of God?

What is my contribution towards the advancement of God's kingdom?

Some of us forget about God when He has blessed us but when things where not so rosy, we where found in His house constantly serving Him.

Some of us even take our place of service for our own selfish interest.

Remember Moses, he was the meekest man on earth. God gave him the ministry to lead his people and he was still meek. He would have been puffed up and forget why he was called to lead and begin doing what he pleased.

In this life we are living, don't allow your position in the society hinder, stop or become an excuse of you not serving God.

Start serving God with everything in you; your strength, money, car and with all He has blessed you with.

But, remember your heart of service to God matters too. It should be done joyfully, willingly and not grugingly.
