God's promises for you is sure and will come to pass

Some of God's promises include: The promise of being blessed and made a blessing. Heb. 6: 13-18. The promise of increase. Job 8: 7 The promise of a rich and fulfilled life. 2Tim. 1: 1. Jn. 10:10. The promise of good health. Exodus 23:25 The promise of the fruit of the womb and the gift of long life. Exodus 23: 26 The promise of eternal life. Heb. 9: 15; 1Jn. 2: 25. The promise of the Holy Spirit. Acts 1: 1; 2: 39. The promise of His leadership and protection. Isaiah 48: 17; Ps. 91: 3-8. God had us in mind when He made promise to Abraham and sealed it with an oath. He swore an oath to assure us, the heirs, the immutability of His counsel/promises. This is how the Bible puts it: Hebrews 6:13-18 "For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, [14] Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. [15] And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. [16] For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. [17] Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: [18] That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us" Our God is a faithful, dependable and a just God. He will never fail. However, we all have a part to play to make what He says concerning us come to pass. Here some things to take note of: 1. Continue to walk in consciousness of his promises over you and never let that devil lie to you that God has failed, that your time has passed or that it's always been only a dream Hebrews 10:35,38 "[35] Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. [38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him" That devil will attack you, will raise a resistance against you. he will try to make things difficult for you. he will even raise men to say all sorts of negative stuffs about what you are believing for. All of that is so he can kill your confidence in God, destroy your faith and make you lose focus. But I challenge you to keep believing no matter what and know that your deliverance is at hand. It was said of Abraham: Romans 4: 19-22 “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: 20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness”. I tell you child of God, it's not over yet, it's sure coming to pass. Somebody reading this is about to share a mind blowing testimony. 2. You need to show patience and walk in obedience to God By experience, we can bear witness that God never lies and never fails. However, we have seen that His promises a lot of the times don’t come to pass instantly or at the time we thought they would happen. God does everything beautiful in His time. Patience is about waiting for a thing for as long as it will take the thing without complaining, worrying or fear. You are going to forfeit everything God has planned for you if you can't wait on Him. And because you don't know when, with God patience in needful. Patience and obedience go together, this is why the Bible says: "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. [37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry." (Hebrews 10:36-37) Obedience is simply about doing the will of God. You see, the devil knows that if he can frustrate you, get you to be upset with God and walk away from His Word, he can interrupt your destiny. So when you seem to be going through delay, he will attack your mind, he will attack your relationships, he will sell to you other 'brilliant ideas' and all that just to make you not do the will of God and forfeit God's plan and purpose for your life. If you want to see The Word fulfilled in your life, you've got to be patient and continuing walking in obedient to God, doing His will. Doing the will of God keeps you within His will and purpose for your life Doing the will of God is your only Guarantee that what you are believing for will come to pass. You forfeit a lot not knowing and not walking in the will of God. You open your life and destiny to the enemy when you step out of God's will. You step out of God's protection when you walk away from His will Outside His will, there are no guarantees. One of the things you must do when you are experiencing a delay is to check it out and make sure that the delay is not as a result of disobedience to God. Check out every aspect of your life and be sure that you are doing the will of God there. Once you know that your walk with God is intact, then know that your best days are ahead of you and it's only a matter of time. However, never forget that you are always going to need patience - Remember, God only does everything beautful in His time. I decree and declare into your life and destiny - the arrows of the enemy against you will not prosper. The mountain before you will come low. In the mighty name of Jesus your victory is here! Keep Doing the will of God

The Rules of our Kingdom - The ask, seek and knock rule

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV) "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: [8] For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" ASK To achieve anything meaningful in life you must always ask: Why am I here? What do I exist for? What does God expect of me? What am I supposed to be doing right now? Which way should I go? What is my target? What must I do to reach my goal? What are the things/resources available for me to work with? Who are the people that are relevant to my purpose? Of the people in my life, who can I really count on when it matters? What am I doing right now that is wrong/not working and needs changing? Until you start asking, you are going to spend your whole life in the wrong place, chasing the wrong thing, doing the wrong thing, and investing what you should not in people that are not connect to your destiny. Do realise that it is not everything you will find out by yourself or through divine revelation so, you must learn to ask people, human beings, especially those who have gone ahead of you. Ask how to do it, where to get it, who to talk with etc. Ask ask ask! If you don't ask, you may never get it. SEEK Jesus says you can find whatever you are looking for but you've got to seek for it. Seeking involves motion - moving and going looking for something. Seeking is about doing something practical to make happen what you desire to have. For instance, if you lose a coin somewhere in your launch and you really want to find it, you dont just stand there praying and hoping that it shows up by itself. No, you will comb and overturn the whole place in search of it. That is what seeking looks like. If you really want a job, you are not going to just fast and pray, fold arms and wishing that someone will come knocking at your door to offer you one. You will go on the computer, you will buy every relevant paper and go visiting all recruiting centres in search of job. That is what seeking looks like. Never sit and do nothing, just praying and expecting something to drop down from heaven for you. Jesus says you've got to seek if you want to find it. And He promises to lead you on the way. "Thus saith the Lord , thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go." (Isaiah 48:17) Seeking may involve a lot of hard work. You may need to comb and overturn the whole place. What you seek for may not show up on the first night but you keep seeking, never tire, Jesus assures that you will find it. KNOCK To knock means to demand for. The idea behind knocking is the understanding that some doors will not just open for you of their own accord. You will have to demand for it. In other words, some things in life, even though they are your portion in destiny, will not come about easily, you will need to insist, persist and push for it. Most precious things of life, particularly those that will help to change your life and rewrite your history don't come cheap. If you will not fight for it, you may never get it. If you dont stand your ground, it may elude you Hay! Go knocking and keep knocking The door will sure open for you That is how it works in our KINGDOM MB

NOVEMBER ... Our month of GLORY

November - Our month of Glory "According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land ; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.".

The believers' fellowship

One of the great gifts that God gave believers is the institution of believers’ congregational gathering and fellowship. The scriptures clearly show that God called us into relationship with Him and to fellowship of the brethren. Some people have taught that being in a relationship with God is not about going to church. They say that as long as you and God are in a relationship, then it suffices; but that is not scriptural. There are people who dislike church meetings for many reasons: 1. they have been hurt in church before 2. they were not brought up going to church, so it is not in them 3. they know some church folks who are hypocrites 4. they find church boring 5. the service is too long etc. Whatever the case, the truth remains that when we come into relationship with God, we are meant to orientate ourselves regarding godly principles, His values and the way His kingdom is designed to function. Every believer needs to understand how our kingdom functions and he must align himself to it. I have seen that some people want to follow God but on their own terms, or the way it suits them better but it is not so with God. To follow God, it must be at His own terms not ours. And He has said, “...........consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is........” (Hebrews 10:24-25) Believers’ fellowship is the way God has designed this kingdom, our kingdom. Every believer must therefore be a part of the believers gathering for corporate worship, corporate prayer and the ministry of the Word. Believers benefit a lot when they come together in fellowship. In fellowship we establish friendship or relationship with other believers and through that friendship, our lives are impacted. We all do not possess everything; we need some people coming into our lives to fulfil God's plan for our lives. No matter what, don't let the devil keep you out!

The honour and joy of servanthood

It is a privilege to be at a place where we can serve people, meet needs in their lives and help to resource them to be their best and fulfil their purpose here on the earth. The heart and life of servanthood is a superior way of life; it is more rewarding than any other thing. True servanthood is rare in our generation. The emphasis among believers today is more on what we can get from God or what He can empower us to achieve for ourselves than on what we can give out to be a blessing. This is reflected in our manner of prayers, in the motive behind the offerings or tithes that we give to God. The God kind of love is what can motivate a person to live a selfless life, seek for the best in people, commit to serve people and give of their best and not for what they can gain from it. Service that is motivated by the love of God can bring the dead back to life, it transforms people, gives life to a community and it reflects the nature and character of God. The life of service motivated by the love of God does not compete to be better than its neighbour; instead, it paves the way for its neighbour to rise to success. Be available today! MB

Choose Wisely!!

The power to choose the outcome of our lives is a gift from God. He created us with that ability and He cannot take it away from us (Ye are gods). The two trees God put in the Garden of Eden (humankinds’s first home) were symbols of our gift and power of choice. We all make choices everyday - We choose when to get up every morning, we choose what to wear, we choose when to eat and what to eat, and we choose where to go to, what to do, and how to spend our day. The choices we make every day determine what we become. You can choose to live or choose to die. You can choose to be a success or a failure. You can choose to be a winner or a loser. You can choose to live in poverty or aspire to be comfortable and wealthy in life. You can choose to be a burden or a blessing. You can choose to live a happy or a sad life. You can choose to be educated or stay ignorant. You can choose to marry or stay single. You can choose who you want to marry or live with. You can choose to live in freedom or be in bondage. You can choose your destiny - The Choices You make every day determine your destiny! MB

The Yoke of Excuse Syndrome

The Yoke of Excuse Syndrome People under this condition always have reasons why certain things cannot be done, why things cannot be achieved and should not be done. They always admit defeat even before they begin or they excuse their failure with one reason or the other. They are failure-orientated people; their mindset is more inclined to failure than success. They envisage failure even where the possibility of achieving success is huge. Those with the disease always come up with excuses like, “I’m not good enough.” “I’m too young” or “I’m too old.” “I don’t know people there who can help me.” “I’m not well-educated.” “I have this disease or this disability.” “People might think that I am…” “What if…” “But my color is…” “But we don’t have enough resources.” “Many people have tried before and failed.” “It is going to be very difficult if not impossible to...” To be a success, you have to believe in yourself, see your potential, and be able to recognize opportunities and know that there is always a way out. You must learn to see solutions, answers, success, victory, and possibilities where other people do not see them. Start to see your world and engage life differently. You have to see your end as God sees it. Inside of you lies so much potential that you do not even realize. There is nothing that the Lord will allow to come your way that you cannot handle. There is no idea that will rise in your brain that you cannot handle. If you can think or imagine it, you can do it. Yes You Can!

Beware of Vision Stealers!

Beware of Vision Stealers! Vision stealers are those people who do not give regard to what you believe about yourself. They are the people who want to do everything to make you feel less, helpless and undeserving and, they want to put out your fire. They believe your dream and passion are all folly. To reach your destiny, you need to Keep away from vision stealers, for if you stick with them, they will eventually wear you out. Keep away from all those who have no respect for your dreams and aspirations, if you stay with them, they will kill your fire and your enthusiasm. Do not make a companion of anybody who is confessing negative things about what you are doing, who despises what you believe God is making out of you, and who always has a dozen and one reasons why what you are doing will not succeed. Whoever does not believe in you and your dream has not right to access your heart.
