LIFE

Sometimes life can be so frustrating. I have never felt the pain of loosong both parents untill yesterday when my brother wed his lovely wife. When ackward things happenned only because we dont have parents. Missing someone in life can make you look foolish infront of people. When the brides family are loaded with gifts yet you people are just there with a little token that with your own words you describe as valuable. When she walks down the aisle with both parents yet for you its a burgain question. We keep our hopes in God. We take our frustrations to God. Even though He is  ot here physically He is here spiritually to comfort us.

Tips on how to wait on God’s intervention

  1. Always read the Bible based on your need asking God for help as He promised John 14:13,14
  2. Fast and pray. Fasting was used in the Bible times especially in difficult times remember the time of Queen Esther Esther 4:1….
  3. Praise God through singing. The devil trembles when you praise God and closed doors open. 
  4. Believe Mark 11:24 and keep having faith. Our never go in vain God surely listens.

SEARCHING YOUR HEART 

​Searching your heart.

You as a Christian have signed a ticket to follow Jesus. You are born again and have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. Ask yourself “Is your heart genuine?”

“The spirit is willing but the flesh is too weak”

James 4:8 

Many are born again Christians but their heart desires denies them the chance to come closer to God. They ask God for things with bad motives. The spirit of selfishness has filled every heart. Everyone only think of themselves forgetting about the love, care and sharing, the gospel that Jesus left for us to spread. That is why whenever we ask for anything from God; He refuses to answer us back. We are told to come closer to him so that he can see our humbleness right from inside our hearts and he will listen to us. Purify our hearts; remove every evil thought, worldly desire that brings fight and quarrels amongst us. Things like pride that make us consider ourselves to be better than others. Before you judge your brother on how alcoholic or how he has never stepped into a church or how he is a sinner than you are, consider yourself the most sinful person, repent and ask for forgiveness. Wash your hands you sinner; means let go of any sinful desire, your old ways and live a new life. You are lucky you are already chosen, ask God to guide you through this race so that you can be the light of the world, can help in saving more souls by being his disciple and you will see his goodness. He will lift you up. Matt 6:33 seek the kingdom of heaven first and he will provide the rest

praise 

​PRAISE

Another way of worshiping God is through praise. We have seen through the bible the power within praise. Besides miracles happening these people got filled inside their hearts with the Spirit.1 Samuel 16 when the Lords Spirit left Saul, God sent an evil spirit to Saul that tormented him. His servants advised him to order for a man who knows how to play the harp and recommended David son of Jesse. Verse 23 says “whenever the evil spirit sent by God came to Saul, David would get his harp and play it. The evil spirit would leave…” meaning there is power that God himself has bestowed on praise and even the instruments used during praise. They are able to send evil spirits away and invite Holy Spirit near.

When we praise the Lord our God, His Glory appears. 2 Chronicles 5:11 where the Covenant Box of the Lord was returned to the Temple the Glory of God appeared. The Levites praised God with cymbals, harps and trumpets that accompanied the singers. “…As the priests were leaving the temple, it was suddenly filled with the dazzling light of the Lords presence…” this shows how God responds when praised immensely. In 2 Chronicles 20:22 “as they began to sing, the Lord threw the invading armies into panic.” We see here how God caused the enemies who wanted to attack King Jehoshaphat in Judea to turn against themselves and kill each other, this was because the Judeans praised the Lord marching before the army.

Acts 16:25-26 “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God,… suddenly there was a violent  earthquake, which shook the prison to its foundations. At once the doors opened and the chains fell off all prisoners.” This miracle happened because of the praises and hymns that Paul and Silas sang for the Lord. The jailer and his family got saved that very night. Praising God can perform miracles in a way that no one expects. Try this and you will have a testimony to tell.
