Jesus Never Lies

Jesus speaking in John 14:6 says, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Someone recently released a piece in which he called Jesus a liar- Established as the only explanation and so he titled it, Jesus you lied.

The challenge is that he concludes the piece inferring that God is faithful.

It is important to clarify that God cannot be both faithful and a liar. Neither can he at one moment be a liar and at another moment be faithful; as he is the same always and forever.

My approach in my piece which I titled, Jesus Never Lies is to ask questions whose answers provoke us to consider who God is to us. Whether he is a conditional being that must conform to our limited knowledge of which we frown when he doesn’t, or if he is God nonetheless.

I realise that we all go through phases in different stages of our lives, and more worthy of note is the fact that if we would be honest with ourselves; we’ve all doubted Jesus in one way or the other and He is fully aware of this. It’s human nature. What would be upsetting is pretending to be OK when we’re not, in the presence of an all knowing God. Indeed he loves our honesty as the poet clearly states out in his piece.

However, it becomes foolishness when we decide our interpretation of situations surrounding us should be the standard on how others should perceive theirs. It is even more foolish to think popularity permits compromise from a place of limited understanding.

Because we live in a generation that enjoys miracles more than the miracle working God and want fast food without any food for thought, I had to give a reply. To give another explanation- a continuation of God’s whisper.

Jesus Never Lies is a tale of reasoning and not condemnation. A reminder that in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”- Roman’s 8:28.

No matter what you are going through, JESUS NEVER LIES. Hold on, he’s faithful to the end.

God has Forgiven You

Recently I was asked two questions that I think resonates with a lot of people, and so, I want to share it with you guys- my amazing wordpress readers and subscribers. It’s on forgiveness. I hope it’s a blessing. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Question 1

Does God forgive a consistent sinner that constantly ask for forgiveness?

This is a deep question. I often fall guilty myself, so I can understand the frustration that comes with it. I am excited by the honesty in this question because it shows someone who is finally ready to receive help. Help that has been freely given to us all.
In answering this, the number one and most important thing to note is that God is faithful. Faithful not because of who or what we do, but because of who He is. However, the Bible says in Romans 6:1, “shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” Certainly Not. Truth is, in the context of the question above, It is easier said than done. Repeating the same thing over time becomes a habit and habits are not easily broken.

Can God forgive? I think this is a wrong question. God does not forgive, God has Forgiven already always and forever. This He did on the cross.

Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission (kjv).

As Christians, or in becoming Christians, we walk into this forgiveness. When we pray for forgiveness, we ask to walk into that which God has already done.

The reason why God does not want us to sin is because of what that does to us… The guilt, the shame, the lack of peace, the hurt… God does not like seeing his children broken, unsettled and unhappy.

Question 2

What can a Christian do to help such a person?

To help such a person, you have to be truthful, loving and realistic in your approach.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (kjv).

Romans 5:9-10 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life (kjv).

Bad (and good) habits are built up with consistency and these bad habits must be broken down with consistency.

I do not know the specifics of the sin we are all guilty of, but if we are to stop it, it’s not an on and off situation. It has to be consistent, intentional and genuine. Then replaced with something else that is positive. It is not enough to stop doing evil, you must start doing good.

Some Pointers for Whosoever is Guilty

  • Let the person accept truthfully that what he or she is doing is wrong and genuinely confess to God. Not because of guilt but because he or she loves God.
  • Ask God to come into his or her life or rededicate his or her life.
  • Find an accountability partner, someone he or she respects, someone that will not judge them, someone that is willing to listen to them patiently and can get achievable targets and punishments to keep them in check.
  • The person might need to change friends, or whatever the trigger is. Trigger is what causes you to sin, it could be your phone, movies, what you hear, where you stay, Etc.

For example, if as a youth leader, I am sexually attracted to one of my fellowship members (female), I should never visit her without another female around, or better yet, I should alway send a female representative any time there’s an information for her.

Saying nothing will happen is the reason why a lot of things are happening currently.We must find our triggers and destroy them as we allow God to gradually renew our minds.

  • Pray, Read God’s word, Surround yourself with positive and like-minded people.

These were my recommendations to the person that asked for her friend. Please feel free to add your contributions. God bless us all as we learn to forgive and receive forgiveness. Amen.

The Unchanging Power of the Truth

A Study of Matthew 27:32-61 with a focus on verse 37 (Kjv)

‘… and set up over His head His accusation written, ‘this is Jesus the king of the Jews’…”-37

From our understanding of the Bible, Jewish people did not believe and still do not believe in Jesus, to be the King of the Jews (the Messiah). This was even the accusation labeled against Him as scripture explains it, but why wasn’t the inscription- “This is Jesus who claims to be the king of the Jews”? Surely it couldn’t have been a space problem!

Yes, in so doing they tried to mock Him, but when dealing with the Truth, whether consciously or unconsciously, even your enemies cannot deny it. It is important to note that it would have made more sense if the inscription was the latter expression because, there were people who didn’t know Jesus as King- let alone as someone who claimed to be one. Therefore, it would only be normal for them to see Jesus and know exactly what he is guilty of- Remember, the inscriptions are placed so that people can know what your offense is; in the case of the robbers; anyone seeing them would know they were guilty of robbery, not that they claimed to have robbed. But in the case of Jesus, as the Bible tells us, the Jews did not crucify Him because ‘He claimed to be the king’ but because ‘He is the king’, as recorded in verse 37 of our study guide.

The point is this- As seen from Vs.51-54, the truth will always come out; though delayed- it can never be denied.  When people falsely accuse you, or when people try to hold you down from the truth of who you are, learn from Jesus- hold on to God and they themselves,  will be the ones to affirm to the truth of who you are.

Jesus at any point could have wanted to ‘show off’ and freed Himself from them “but for the joy set before Him, He endured till the very end”. One Key truth Christ left us with from this message is that when we find ourselves in such trying times ( of whatsoever nature), whatever decision we decide to take should always remain in the will of God and in so doing, in the presence of our accusers, we will be liberated and subsequently celebrated.

I therefore decree and declare for you today, in the name that is above all names; that anyone that wants to deny the glory God has placed upon your life, will be the same person to promote it in Jesus name!!!

The story of Joseph and Esther-as seen in Genesis 37-41 and Esther 2-7, respectively, further explain this prayer. 

 

When the enemy is done planning; God’s blessings always comes! If the enemy doesn’t repent, he will fall into the trap he set for you. Here’s the good news though and the message of the cross, the enemy can repent; that is why Christ died on the cross- To Bring Forgiveness and Hope in Salvation.

God bless you as you walk in His footsteps…

Get God Involved 

As a christian youth, i have often struggled with the idea behind understanding one’s purpose. More often than not, i’ve been perplexed with ‘why’ and ‘how’ to accomplish this purpose, even when i seemingly knew what it was.

It can really be frustrating when we do not understand why we exist, or for what purpose we live. It is therefore said that,  ‘to know the purpose of something… always ask the manufacturer’, but this has become a  cliché. This is because we always talked about it to the hearing of the manufacturer, but never to that point were he has a say in the conversation.

As a christian, i know my creator is God and his manual is the Bible, from experience, i know that it is only in getting God involved that the true  definition of our purpose can be revealed.

Get to Know God, seek him and you will find your purpose. You are already on this journey; get God involved.

God bless you

Dear Husbands

image

One thing that can limit your prayers-
One sure thing that can HINDER your prayers is treating your wives with Disrespect. Once there is an interference with your prayer life  (your lifeline to communicating with God), then, there will be no ‘peace of mind’, calm and absolute joy that can only be gotten from God.

1st Peter 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives,
and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. (NIV)…

Proverbs 18:22
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the
LORD. (NIV)…

It’s simple- you beat her and God retains His favour. You call her weak and your life reflects weakness (little wonder you find succour in pride…drugs….alcohol and punches).

When the Bible says ‘weaker vessels’, it implies that men are also ‘weak’- just not as ‘weak’ as women…(contextual)

Therefore, the process of submission for a woman- YOUR WIFE is a duty and not a function of her person.  If it was her person and not a role as it is; the bible would have recommended her to be submissive to every man, but it says TO YOUR OWN HUSBAND (1st Peter 3:1a).. It’s that simple- she isn’t ‘lesser’ than you- SHE UPGRADES YOU!!!

Colossians 3:18
Wives, submit yourselves unto your OWN husbands, as it is fit in the Lord… (KJV)

Ephesians 5:24
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their OWN husbands in every thing… (KJV)

With love

Dear Wives….coming soon.

Dear Atheist-

20150805093546766

There is no question of the existence of a Supreme Being- a Supreme Principle, every religion accepts that- even Science (only the names differ); whom this Being is, is usually the bone of contention.

Dear Atheist- Free Thinkers

…Ask for the infilling of the Holy Spirit
then read the Bible
but while at it, allow the Holy Spirit direct you
then and only then…

You know I like you, yea?
I will give you an advice- I’m probably younger than you, so you don’t have to take it to heart…

Here’s the thing,

Stop being foolish!

You are intellectually sound, an advanced breed of the Homo sapiens Species. One who’s hard work and quest for knowledge outstrips all contradictions- this is just to say, you are Human by the way,- like that ‘dumb ass’ believing in an invisible Being.

Are you really that dull? Like serious? Are you?
Because, unlike the guy believing in an invisible being, you do not obey protocols- you do not follow procedures and still expect to get the same results as though you did…

Far be it that I am writing this to impose a doctrine on you- it is honestly not my choice to make, whether you follow procedures or not. I am however here to clearly state that in such cases whereby you do things differently, you shouldn’t be shocked or even surprised when you get a different result- you should actually accept it.

I recently went to buy a car. I met with the CEO of the company and after he instructed me on how to operate the vehicle, showing me steps in the manual, esp. the part that talks about how you start the car. I collected the car keys and placed it in the exhaust- turned it on, but the car wouldn’t just work. It just wouldn’t start. Considering I’m in my 20s and I’ve seen more cars move than I can count; I knew fully well that when you kick start a car, it is suppose to start, so I confidently  went into the CEO’s office- ‘bashing’ him with my quarries as to why a brand new car wouldn’t work- it’s pretty messed up, isn’t it?

I mean you guys would agree with me, yea?

Then I woke up from my car buying dream- here is my point though…

Let’s look at some books in the Bible…

The Bible- the same Book a lot of atheist I have encountered never forget to remind me is ‘full of crap’, ‘inconsistent’, ‘fake’, yada, yada, yada… the bottom line been, the Supreme Being- God, does not exist- He’s to invisible to be Possible.

….’ All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17) that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.  

-2nd Timothy 3:16-17

14) But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15) But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.

-1st Corinthians 2:14-15

26) But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.)

-John 14:26-27

So let me ask you ‘Mr Smart one’, if you can’t follow a simple procedure laid down by an authority, how dare you then question this same authority?

What cannot be disproved should never be questioned.

It’s like building a house, but wanting to start from the roof- it makes no sense.

Dear Atheist,

Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion, but it’s rather useless and makes you foolish if it’s baseless. There is a path to life and it is not an accident. The Bible has a procedure to understanding it, it was inspired by a Devine Being and so must be followed in His way or else, abuse and misinterpretations are inevitable.

An advice to you, my dear fellow that I like…
I’m probably younger than you, so you don’t have to take it to heart- you are probably smarter, so you don’t have to listen…
Oh, but I pray you would.

Ask for the infilling of the Holy Spirit
then read the bible
but while at it, allow the Holy Spirit direct you
then and only then would you be allowed to discredit the Bible- until then, don’t ever tell me again that you know the bible more than me, because it is no longer I that live, but Christ that lives in me (Galatians 2; 20), Christ in me is the hope of glory. (Colossians 1-27).

NB: Don’t worry, you would soon understand.

What do you have to lose doing the right thing, the right way, to get the right result???

 

DO TAKE CARE!

Good day sir,

image

You need to understand that we are in the world, but not of the world. This is because our home is in heaven.

Now, since we are citizens of heaven here on earth, it would only be proper to state that earth must be conducive enough for us to be able to accomplish our God given mandates- implying that heaven can be found on earth, but no earth in heaven (as we are not from earth in heaven). This is why in the final days, everything will pass away,but for the word of God that remains.

Remember, in the beginning of creation, we were created in the image and likeness of God, and the Word of God is God, because, in the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the Word was God- the same Word became flesh, and we know only Jesus who is God became flesh for our sins, then, if this is true(and it is true), it means that we are the image of the Word; and so, if the Word remains, so do we… eternally(though it depends were some people’s eternity will be(hell I mean)but for us(that have been saved by grace) and you that is willing to become the son of God (therefore not being of this world), we have our eternity returning back home as worthy ambassadors.

Note, He came to the world and the world knew him not, this is only because He isn’t one of them- but to those that accepted Him; this means that there are people in the world who have also realised that they are not from the world- and so recognised Him when He came, because they are from the same place…

While there is no world in the word, the word can be found in the world, therefore, if your desire is to go back to heaven (where there is no earth), stop doing earthly things(things that don’t  glorify God) and start doing heavenly things(things that glorify God). I’m sure you get the idea… a godly lifestyle is still possible in our generation.

Remember, while coming to earth is not much of a choice, going back to heaven is. It’s yours to choose today- God gave us that choice!

Would you be so kind as to let me deliver a brief message to you…

Good day sir/ma,
if you would like to know more about the idea of heaven and how to eternally be in Christ, kindly visit my YES TO JESUS page immediately, and if you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour (which means you’re sure of heaven) then witness this truth to others as the crown of soul willing awaits you in heaven…

Thank you and God bless.

Can They Really Change Who We Are?

The Unchanging Power of the Truth 

A Study on Matthew 27:32-61- With a Key Focus on Verse 37

09609177-aea8-41a2-9445-10a36f703bdb-1

‘… and set up over His head His accusation written, ‘this is Jesus the king of the Jews’…”-Vs 27

From our understanding of the bible, the Jews didn’t believe and still do not believe Jesus to be the King of the Jews (the Messiah). This was even the accusation labeled against Him as scripture explains it, but why wasn’t the inscription “This is Jesus who claims to be the king of the Jews”?

Yes, in so doing they tried to mock Him, but when dealing with the Truth, whether consciously or unconsciously, even your enemies cannot deny it. It is important to note that it would have made more sense if the inscription was the latter expression because; there were people who didn’t know Jesus as King, let alone as someone who claimed to be one.

Therefore, it would only be normal for them to see Jesus and know exactly what he is guilty of- Remember, the inscriptions  are placed so that people can know what your offense is; In the case of the robbers, anyone seeing them would know they were guilty of robbery, not that the claimed to have robbed. But in the case of Jesus, as the Bible tells us, the Jews did not crucify Him because ‘He claimed to be the king’ but because ‘He is the king’. With their mouth they said and wrote it, as is recorded in verse 37…

The point is this- As seen from Vs.51-54, the truth will always come out; though delayed- it can never be denied.  When people falsely accuse you, or when people try to hold you down from the truth of who you are, learn from Jesus- hold on to God and they themselves,  will be the once to affirm to the truth of who you are.

Jesus at any point could have wanted to ‘show off’ and freed Himself from them “but for the joy set before Him, He endured till the very end”. One Key truth Christ left us with from this message is that when we find ourselves in such trying times ( of whatsoever nature), whatever decision we decide to take should always remain in the will of God and in so doing, in the very presence of our accusers,  we will be liberated.

I therefore decree and declare for you today, with the name that is above all names; that in the name of Jesus, anyone that wants to deny the glory God has placed upon your life, will be the same person to promote it in Jesus name!!!

For a clearer understanding of this prayer, here’s the story of Joseph and Esther-as seen in Genesis 37-41 and Esther 2-7, respectively

Joseph had a dream, in this dream, he was to become great- he told his brothers, and immediately,  they sort on how to bring him down (The thing is this, when God is on your side, anything else anyone does will turn out to be working for your good), but ended up leading him to his promise land. What they thought for evil, God turned it around for good!

In the story of Esther, Haman wanted to rubbish Modeciah and all the people that came to town with Esther. After a proper plan on how he was to destroy them (The thing is this, when the enemy is planning to destroy you, God is at the same time planning to bless you), Haman, himself was the one who ended up promoting Modeciah.

When the enemy is done planning; God’s blessings always come. If the enemy doesn’t repent, he will fall into that trip he set for you.

Here’s the good news and the message of the cross, the enemy can repent; that is why Christ died on the cross- To Bring Forgiveness and Hope in Salvation.

 

God bless you as you walk in His footsteps…

Speaking in tongues-

Having a Right Motive and Understanding- A Contextual Study on 1st Corinthians 14 as it relates to the church.

f677603e-5f54-4c04-8922-9da24bb4ffb2-1‘…It is important that everyone have access to the knowledge and love of God in the language everyone understands, than that you go off and cultivate God’s presence in a mysterious prayer language…- 1st Corinthians 14:5 (Msg)

When the Holy Spirit fell upon the Apostles, they began to speak in tongues (in a number of different languages) and the people (Parthians, Medes, Elamites; visitors from Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene; immigrants from Rome, both Jews and proselytes; Cretans and Arabs) understood them according to his/her tribe (Acts 2:1-11 Msg).

Speaking in tongues is a sign for unbelievers (1st Corinthians 14:22 Msg). I would like to believe that when the disciples spoke, Jewish people were around also (yes they were) – if they spoke in other tongues, how is it that even their people understood? What if they wouldn’t have understood?

The only time speaking in tongues to the public (Church) is significant, is when there is an interpreter as the Holy Spirit did in the time of the Apostles. This is because if you speak in a way no one understands, what’s the point of opening your mouth’? (1st Corinthians 14:9 Msg)

‘He who speaks in tongues edifies himself… unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified’- (1st Corinthians 14:4-5 Niv).

Don’t get me wrong- Speaking in tongues is a beautiful experience God has allowed us share with Him and even Apostle Paul who wrote to the Corinthians affirmed to the wonderful intimacy it provides us with God (1st Corinthians 14:18 Msg). However, my point is this; ‘since you are eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church- (1st Corinthians 14:12 Niv)

THE ABUSE-

Isn’t it funny how people think ‘speaking in tongues’ and ‘saying things you don’t understand’ are synonymous?- Sst

And so they open their mouths in church to speak ten thousand words that sound like gibberish, rather than speak five that everyone will understand’-1st Corinthians 14:19 Msg (paraphrased).

The value and beauty of speaking in tongues has been nullified to a very large extend by people who have adapted the world system of ‘wanting to feel among’ and unfortunately the church isn’t doing much about it; some new ministries even promote this directly or indirectly. What are you as a pastor or child of God doing about this?

In those days, people believed the size of your bible is the size of your anointing and so you see pastors and ‘strong men of God’ with huge bibles. People with little bibles on the other hand were always looked down upon; and so everyone wanted a big bible, just so, they too can feel among. Do you remember those days?

Don’t get me wrong- MOTIVE… motive is the foundation of everything penned down today, so unless you are guilty, don’t feel the guilt!

People these days go to the extent of learning and memorizing how to speak in tongues, word for word from what they heard from their Pastors/Ministers. This is partly because churches (new generational churches) sometimes make members feel ‘incomplete’ if they cannot speak in tongues.

Oh! You don’t have the Holy Spirit in you-

I remember a true life story a friend once shared with me. After a program that was organized and facilitated by ‘ministers of God’, one of the facilitators (a Nigerian) was asked why he didn’t speak in tongues- they wondered- didn’t he have the Holy Spirit? After much defensive arguing, the other facilitators began to pray for him to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit whose evidence was in the speaking of tongues; when this man noticed they weren’t going to give up, he started speaking his local dialect (unknown to them). On hearing him speak in a different language, they began to praise God for they had given him the spirit of tongues.

  • What God does not give you, man cannot!
  • Isn’t it funny how people think ‘speaking in tongues’ and ‘saying things you don’t understand’ are synonymous?- Sst
  • Hypocrisy and mediocrity become your bedspread when you don’t allow God to use you, but use yourself for God- Sst
  • Only God can give you a discerning spirit. This is missed when your will is not in line with God’s will- Sst

THE IDEAL-

26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret. 28 If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and to God.

29 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. 30 And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. 31 For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged. 32 The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. 33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.’-1st Corinthians 14:26-33 Niv

‘If you won’t play by these rules, God cannot use you’- 1st Corinthians 14:37-38 Msg

‘Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way’. – 1st Corinthians 14 39-40

‘Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling’.- Philippians 2:12

Speaking in tongues is not an immunity to sin, neither is it a proof of a higher calling of purity. Walk your faith with the grace of God to His glory, not to the pleasing of the population of your congregation. Desire and accept the Holy Spirit. Never do His work with his walk in your life.  

Remember the disciples spoke in tongues as the Spirit prompted/enabled them and not as they prompted or enabled the Spirit- Acts 2:4

God’s grace upon you with love,

Aggressive Truth

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”.
                                                                                                             Isaiah 40:31   

     Waiting does not mean staying in one place, from the above scripture, waiting is an action word. The bible verse says, they “shall renew their strength”… waiting does not get you tired if you take it as a noun, but because it is a verb, after the act, your strength must be renewed. Renewed in this context is not just to refresh one’s strength, but an exchange of a person’s strength; as in this case, the Lord’s strength for the individual waiting upon Him. If ever, one is to have his strength renewed, then he must wait upon the Lord and nothing else; “but they…” implies that this principle will only be applicable to those within this context. To rely on God allows you infinite access to His strength.
 
     In waiting, you show that you’ve at least enough trust in whom you are waiting on, as the very act of waiting shows you are expectant and have a significant amount trust that you will not be disappointed. Waiting entails hoping on, looking up too, expecting… In waiting on the Lord, your strength is changed into His and the spirit of endurance is granted unto you. Because waiting on the Lord isn’t passive; your soul, your mind, your body and in general, your entire being must be put into perspective.

Waiting on the Lord means you are actively involved in the understanding of his Word, which allows him to bless you, as stated in Psalm 37:34.

Waiting on the Lord means you are productive in thinking, which allows Him to teach you His truth, as seen in Psalm 25:5.

     Waiting on the Lord means you have accepted a single truth and you’re ready to stand firm in it. This allows answers to your prayers; the process of waiting on the Lord allows you to exercise your godly attributes and qualities. Waiting on the Lord for whatsoever might be your case, means you do not lose faith (as that is when it is acted on the most). It also implies that you exercise the spiritual truth written in scripture as regards that situation and he will never disappoint you nor allow you grow weary or faint.

     We live in a generation that wants everything now; instant pleasure, instant gratification and immediate significance. Today’s study scripture is a very powerful one as it goes against human believes and the world’s system. It is a tough concept and that is why the benefits there after fall only on those that wait upon the Lord. If you will be obedient to this truth; you “shall mount up with wings as eagles”; reaching high heights without losing site and soaring to the greatness of God Himself (Ephesians 2:6), “you shall run, and not be weary”; looking up to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith, in whom you can join at the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:1-2), “and you shall walk, and not faint”; because you’ve received Christ and you are in a good place for an eternal walk (Colossians 2:6).

Are you waiting on the Lord for something? Then you must quit worrying and start living in the truth of God’s words as regards that situation because waiting on Lord is never passive.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”.
