What do you do when you go through something you have never been through before?🤔..be it good or bad.
I find it hard to answer this question because sometimes you just don’t realise what you’re going through until it hits you real hard..we all go through good times and bad times…but sometimes I just wonder why the bad times can’t be removed from the equation 😪 and the good times multiplied.
But I realised that you need a bad time today to have a good time tomorrow 😊.its not supposed to be smooth always there must be some breaks somewhere somehow..
Most at times our bad times boils down to some decisions and choices we made to have good times..and theses decisions and choices are extremely important to us as human beings.
Lets take a look at (Mattew 6:25) Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes..the good news is that We are reminded to stop sweating the small stuff. This verse serves as a reminder that God will take care of you so you don’t have to worry🤩.about good times or bad times.
My small message today is that good times and bad times are okay times🥰..so don’t worry too much..

Matter 8:1-4, Mark 1:40–45 and Luke 5:12–16.
When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
God is a pursuer and his love for us is unending.. He is not going to rush you into doing something but sometimes you have to take that step of faith and say this is what I want, I want breakthrough in my life and I want to experience the unending love of God.
You take that step of faith by saying ,God open the eyes of my heart.This means that you need God in your life and you want him to stay in your heart and be the light in your heart.😊
All this can happen when God opens your eyes.when he opens your eyes he shows how his mercy endures forever and how ready he is to always listen to you.

(Matthew 13:21-33, Mark:30-32, Luke 13:18-19).These three Bible verses talks about the parable of the mustard seed which Jesus told his followers and later on explained to his disciples ,Jesus teaches that although the Kingdom of God started small with Jesus and the disciples, it would grow and spread across the world to unlimited numbers of followers but today I want us to look at another side of the parable of the mustard seed.
The parable is so short but carries a lot of mind blowing thoughts. The parable talks about growth (Matthew 13:31-32),Jesus told them another parable: The kingdom of heaven is like this,A man takes a mustard seed and sews it in his Field. It is the smallest seed ,but when it grows up it is the biggest of all plants, it becomes a tree so that birds come and make their nest in it branches.
Jesus Christ was talking about the the kingdom of heaven and he said its like a man who takes a mustard seed and sews it in his field. Did you know we are God’s kingdom? So these two lines of the parable is referring to us human beings, its telling us to take the mustard seed, in other words it telling us to make a move, how we take the step to make an attempt sometimes seems difficult and sometimes impossible,but in the parable the Man takes a seed not any other but a mustard seed the smallest of all seeds.
The mustard seed is the smallest of all but when it grows up it’s the biggest of all plants. Someone could be asking why the smallest seed grows to become the the biggest plant well for us Christian’s it doesn’t matter because our God makes all things possible in his time.
This tells us that God does not care the person he chooses the only thing he knows is that you have to take the seed and plant it in your field.There is a saying that says that a little drop of water makes a mighty ocean a and this is very true, we were all born into this world as babies and gradually we are growing into adolescents and adults so it doesn’t matter your tribe, your skin color, your wealth or anything what God wants is for you to grow and fulfill the purpose of which he brought you to this earth and become the biggest tree so that birds will build their nest on it branches.
When the Smallest seed grows to become the biggest of all plants it becomes a tree so that birds come and make their nest in it branches.The great news about taking that seed to plant is that when it grows it will impact the lives of others, this is because others will come and build their nest on the biggest tree, other people are going to be blessed because you took that bold step, because you you took that small seed to plant and over time it grew into the biggest tree of all.
My message today is to encourage those who find it difficult to take a step to do want they want to do because they think their resources are limited or do not have enough, just start with the small you have it’s just a matter of time and blessings from God.
Paul is declaring a powerful truth:1 Corinthians 1:21, : “Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.” The reason so many fail to believe in Christ’s death on the cross as the way to be forgiven from their own sin is not because the idea is too hard to understand. It’s because it is too easy. It is foolishness for simpletons, as an unbeliever sees it.
The gospel is not something that can be worked out by logic and philosophy. Evidence can lead us towards the truth (Romans 1:18–20; Psalm 19:1; Matthew 7:7–8) but that truth ultimately has to be accepted as revelation from God.
One thing we should know as Christians is that we are human beings and that sin is inevitable for the bible says,If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
But also we should not forget that our creator is holy and that he says that Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction.
The truth is that sin cannot be taken out from our lives because we are born sinners that is why it is important to always remember that anytime we sin and we sincerely ask for forgiveness from God he is just and faithful to forgive our sins..that is my favorite aspect of Christianity knowing that my creator is aware of my weakness and short comings and being ever ready to forgive my sins when I confess them sincerely.
Let’s throw more light on confessing our sins sincerely.. This does not mean that we should continue doing bad things and keep it at the back of our minds that God will forgive us no, we should be diligent in our ways and not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of our mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
(Hebrews 10:16). This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds
A circle can be seen as an image but it has a more deeper meaning .It is said to be a symbol of Perfection, equality ,completeness and many more. In (Ephesians 4:6 ESV)..There is one God and father of all mankind,who is Lord of all ,works through all and is in all. This Scripture talks about how perfect and complete our God is.(And then the question follows).
Do you own your own circle?Do you take charge of it? Well in (Isaiah 40:22 ESV),it is he who sits above the circle of the earth,and it inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,and spreads them like a tent to dwell in.
God owns everyone’s circle and has put as to take charge of it.It is us who determines the kind of people to be in our circle , does our circle cause God to stretch out the heavens like a curtain; and spreads them like a tent to dwell in? Our circle should be able embrace the lost and love with no conditions whatsoever.
God who is perfect knows everyone’s circle and it short comings that is why he sits over the circle of the earth and keep providing for his children. It doesn’t matter the circle you are in, God does not consider your weakness but rather he looks at how perfect and complete a circle is and carefully moulds you because he says in (Genesis 1:26) that he had created us in his own image and surely we are his image.
“Let God stay in your circle because he is all in all.”
What else would we ask from our creator? Is it enough that he calmed the tempest and assures his children of safety? (Mark 4:35-41 RSV) In this verse the bible speaks about how Jesus Christ calms the storm on the sea with his disciples.. Jesus Christ did not only still the tempest but also he did something wonderful..
Whiles the tempest was raging,Jesus was in the stern asleep on a cushion.. Jesus was asleep on the boat when the tempest was raging,but the disciples were wondering what they would do about the storm and they realised that Jesus was with them so they cried out to Jesus..
Sometimes we forget our creator,we under estimate him but he is the doer of all things. He stills the roaring of seas,the roaring of waves and the tumults of people. There is nothing too big for him to do.
In (Matthew 8:26 RSV) when the disciples when to Jesus saying “save us Lord we are perishing”, he said to them ” why are you afraid ,O men of little faith ? Jesus after saying this went on and he rebuked the winds and the sea and there was a great calm .Where then is our faith,how much faith do we have ,how steadfast are we in our maker. The son of God says we shouldn’t be afraid he is with us he’s got us in his palms..don’t be afraid!! cry out to him and he will arise and calm the raging tempest.
It is true that sometimes our storms are outraging and overwhelming and even coils our soul,but God is the biggest,he is bigger than every storm and he will calm them.. So even as the tempest rages let’s cry out to God and he will calm it through his son Jesus Christ..
Some times you just have to calm down, cry out to the Lord so that he calms the tempest through his son Jesus Christ.
Do you have a friend?…If yes do you know who a friend really is ?…If no read this. Some people say a friend is someone whom you have known for a long time and trust..but the question is do we always trust our friends? Anyways a friend is a person who loves at all times because no one is perfect…
Let see what the Holy Bible says about friendship.. Then the lord God said “It is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”(Genesis. 2:18 RSV)..God said this before the fall of man , before sin even entered the world..so this should tell us that friends are very important in our life’s as humans……God saw the need to make man a companion or a friend because he noticed that man cannot leave alone,and it very true..some people are where they are because of true friends or bad friends..
It is very hard to maintain a healthy and strong relationship because it sometimes becomes messy and challenging.. But we have to love our friends for who they are because good friends are like stars , when they shine we also shine..
Friends will be your ally like countries are allies in war times..
Thinking of how to start that thing?..Look no further read this..(Isaiah43:18-19)..The bible says that we should forget about the past things that is the old things , and God goes on to assure us that he’s about doing something new…Interestingly our dear God even tells us that he is going to make way in the wilderness , streams and the wasteland..This means he doesn’t even care the kind of person you are. So if you are thinking of how to get on your feet and start that marvelous idea of yours,remember that our dear God got your back so you not going to backslide.
Ambivalence has nothing to do with you starting something.. “Gather yourself in the love of God and start gloriously..
