Jesus be the Center
Its all about you,
Yes its all about you.

And every knee will bow
and every tongue confess you Jesus, Jesus
Say his name, Jesus, Jesus!”

In my life, my career, in my family, in my ministry, in my relationship,
Jesus is the Center,
He is the Center of it all!!!

iTestify that the Lord is winning a battle for me!!!

iTestify that the arm of the LORD is winning a major victory for me in this week.  I thank God for my victories.

iTestify that All who stand and all that stands against me will fall right before my eyes in Jesus name. There is a spirit of a warrior in me and God has arisen as a mighty man of war

Psalm 91:7-13The Message (MSG)

91 1-13 You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
under them you’re perfectly safe;
his arms fend off all harm.
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,
not flying arrows in the day,
Not disease that prowls through the darkness,
not disaster that erupts at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around,
drop like flies right and left,
no harm will even graze you.
You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance,
watch the wicked turn into corpses.
Yes, because God’s your refuge,
the High God your very own home,
Evil can’t get close to you,
harm can’t get through the door.
He ordered his angels
to guard you wherever you go.
If you stumble, they’ll catch you;
their job is to keep you from falling.
You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes,
and kick young lions and serpents from the path.”

This is my testimony today!!

Think on these things…

The mind is a beautiful thing. It is the origin of whatever we say and do.  If you are going to mind what you say or what you do, you have to mind what you think about!!

So, Philipians 4:8

sh-censored-human8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

You are a product of the thoughts you entertain!! For as a man thinketh, so is he.

I Testify

That the Holy Spirit is my advantage!! I am mightily helped!!!
That the Lord has placed the right people, in the right places, to help me at the right time, as i convert my ideas into reality!!

Deep Calleth unto Deep

By Benny Hinn

To experience a deeper dimension of God’s presence, your soul must hunger and thirst for God in the same way a deer pants for the safety and sustenance of water. Only a small percentage of believers ever really experience this kind of intimacy with God because of the price.
Psalm 42:1-2 declares, “As the hart [male red deer] panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”

In the natural, the panting of the deer is an audible agonizing for the safety the waters provide when pursued by a predator. When the deer runs into the water, the predator can no longer detect its scent. In addition to finding safety from its enemies, the deer finds relief from thirst in the waters.

“Intimacy with God is found only in the
realm of the spirit.”Spiritually, your process of discovering a deeper dimension of God’s presence involves longing, thirsting, and seeking. David wrote, “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary” (Psalm 63:1-2).

Intimacy with God is found only in the
realm of the spirit. There is a place of deep anointing, deep presence, and deep
intimacy with God Almighty where “deep calleth unto deep” or spirit calls unto spirit. It is a place that is so pure that every part of your being is consumed by the presence of Almighty God; a deep place where there is perfect communion between your spirit and every dimension of God’s presence. Your soul is stirred and there is a breakthrough in the spirit as “deep calleth unto deep” (Psalm 42:7).

It is at times like these that words become inadequate, because spoken words are the expression of the mind and not the soul. Words cease, and you stop asking. Only your heart can speak as it erupts in worship. There is perfect harmony, perfect oneness. As you bask in the glory of His awesome presence, your spirit begins to fellowship with Him, crying out, “Oh, that I might know Him! Not the things He gives, or what He imparts, but Him!”

Of Battles and Wars.

Harry Truman once said

“In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves…self-discipline with all of them came first.”

And from this I have learnt, that if I am to conquer my enemy and overcome my challenge, self-discipline is key; and that includes the discipline to always think victory and not failure. That I should so tame my mind to entertain only thoughts of good success.

And that, in itself, is victory!

Feel free to win!!

Thinking Spot…

Sometimes we hold back from our goals and targets because we are too afraid of what others will think or say.

We are so afraid that our success will be too hurtful to those around us. We think to ourselves “let me not do this because i don’t want X to think am showing off.” or “Shh, don’t let anyone know i got an A, they’ll feel bad and not want to be friends with me.”

Well, there comes a time when you need to stop living for others. Like someone once said, “Be yourself, everybody else is taken.” People that feel intimidated or angered by your success shouldn’t be the benchmark for what you do, otherwise, you’ll never get to do anything you really want.

Surround yourself with people  who celebrate your success and encourage you to do more. Be free to Win! Free to soar!! Free to conquer!!

Live life big!!! He did give us all things to enjoy, so go ahead, enjoy it!!!

Beyond Actions!!

More often than not, many people think what makes them good, is the good acts that they do. They think well, “I am a good person, I give to the poor, I go to church every Sunday, I am not rude to the homeless guy at the corner…I definitely must be living right”.

But we need to understand that living right is beyond our personal actions. Its about who, through his suffering became sin that we may become the righteousness of God through him(2 Corinthians 5:21)RoR. It is not right living and good deeds that make you righteous but righteousness that makes you live right.  It is impossible to live right without righteousness. Half the time, when people think they are living right, they aren’t because they are either doing things to please others or for their own selfish benefit. Righteousness comes with love. Love will compel you to do right, not because its expected but because you love God and you love the next person.

Get to know Christ. Receive the gift of righteousness and reign in life through him. Romans 5:17.

God Bless you.

Only a Donkey

The donkey awakened, his mind still savoring the afterglow of the most exciting day of his life. Never before had he felt such a rush of pleasure and pride.

He walked into town and found a group of people by the well. “I’ll show myself to them,” he thought.

But they didn’t notice him. They went on drawing their water and paid him no mind.

“Throw your garments down,” he said crossly. “Don’t you know who I am?”

They just looked at him in amazement. Someone slapped him across the tail and ordered him to move.

“Miserable heathens!” he muttered to himself. “I’ll just go to the market where the good people are. They will remember me.”

But the same thing happened. No one paid any attention to the donkey as he strutted down the main street in front of the market place.

“The palm branches! Where are the palm branches!” he shouted. “Yesterday, you threw palm branches!”

Hurt and confused, the donkey returned home to his mother.

“Foolish child,” she said gently. “Don’t you realize that without Him, you are just an ordinary donkey?”

Just like the donkey who carried Jesus in Jerusalem, we are most fulfilled when we are in the service of Jesus Christ. Without him, all our best efforts are like “filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6) and amount to nothing. When we lift up Christ, however, we are no longer ordinary people, but key players in God’s plan to redeem the word.

The Road to Emmaus

christ-appears-on-the-road-to-emmaus-2015-01-01   They walked with him and talked with him and yet they did not even know it was him.  They were blind, what they needed was for their eyes to be opened so they could know him……..on the Road to Emmaus.

Luke 24:13-31

On the Road to Emmaus

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles[a] from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”

They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

19 “What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulershanded him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke itand began to give it to them. 3Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
