royal table

The field is ripe. The harvest is plentiful. Who will I send? Who will heed my call? The barns are full, the press is overflowing with wine. Who will heed my call? Who will carry my fruits to the weak and hungry? Who will clothe the naked with my warmth and Glory?

Many are the thoughts of a man but it is the LORD who establishes his way. I know your thoughts and I know my thoughts for you. You do not know the entirety of my thoughts toward you. It is great and overwhelming for your mind to comprehend. The sum of its vastness, all of creation cannot contain. My thoughts for you is glorious and majestic and I need you to walk with me and partner with me to see its fruition in your life. I desire to make known to you the path of life.

Shacking or Settling?

shacking up & settling

In Proverbs 3:5-6,  the spirit of wisdom admonishes to trust in the LORD with all of your heart and then cautions against leaning on your own understanding but to rather acknowledge him and he will direct all your ways or paths.

Marriage is a big deal if you ask me. It is not to be compared to a career choice or any other things that are deemed important. I say this because, it is the first institution; Jehovah God, the creator of the world put in place. (Genesis 2:8). Hitherto, God looked at every thing he had created and said it was good but said it was not good (right) for man to be alone, so he created for him; a suitable helper. Hold on to the thought of helper and let it marinate, I’ll get right back to it. Let’s now take a look at God’s layout and blueprint for marriage.

The first commandment, the LORD gave to man was to multiply and be fruitful.(Genesis 1 :28). God’s purpose for the creation of man was to create one in his image and likeness with whom he would commune and fellowship. Hence, he created them, blessed them and then commanded them to be fruitful and multiply. He thus instituted marriage with its utmost and foremost duty to multiply (reproduce). God is a wise God (ironic right?) But, it is important I state this, because of the current state of the world we live in. I say this because, God in his wisdom saw the need for the institution of marriage as the right foundation and place for multiplication and reproduction and evidently sex.

The Edge

edge

In a flash, I saw the hand of God lift up from my life…. I realized my folly and the deception of my heart. I was laid bare, exposed and uncovered because the hand that held kept and shielded me had just lifted and I had been graced to have a glimpse of it. My heart was heavy, I was ashamed and vulnerable because his gracious hand had lifted. I knew then and there only he can save because I had come to the edge of the cliff… I needed a savior. So, I called out to him sincerely to burn it all out, all the pride and deception of my heart and leave only him. He was all I needed and all I had.

DECEMBER 2016 PROPHETIC WORD

royal table

The land is yours. Go up and take it. Yet you ask; which land? Yet again, I’ll remind you; the land I promised to you even from the beginning of the year. Why do you think it is too late? Caleb took his possession even at age 85 because he knew he who had promised was faithful. I ask you child, did Caleb not see the giants in the land as the others did? Yet he had eyes of faith and the spirit of understanding. He knew I am not a God who teases. He knew that my goodness and loving kindness endures forever hence if I have brought him to it than I was also able to let him to take it.

Do you realize; that in and with me, the fight is already in victory and from victory. Who do you say I am in the battle? Continue reading “Royal Table”

Ex-pired!

expired

Expiration means “exhalation of breath”. It is interesting that when a person dies, we sometimes say they have “expired” or figuratively say ; ” they have breathed their last breath” When death occurs, the end of a matter is established.

When death occurs, the end of a matter is established.

There’s a reason why things have expiration dates. For this same reason, expired items are not meant to  be kept around. They stink! They stink so bad, it is hard to use it for its original intended purpose. So what do you do with expired stinking items? You throw it away into the trash. You don’t try to use it because you know it’s gonna do bad things to your body and since you really don’t want that to happen, you get rid of it no matter what it meant to you.

The Brewery

brewery

I ain’t no expert at brewing but I do know that the “strength’ or “goodness ” of an alcoholic drink is very much dependent on the fermentation process. The fermentation process involves the chemical breakdown of the malt extract by bacteria, yeast or other microorganism and the subsequent production of carbon dioxide(CO2)  and ethanol/alcohol as byproducts. It is interesting to note that the word ferment also means to incite or stir up.

You might wonder where am going with all of this… Well, this blog post is not about how to make good beer at home or teach you the science of fermentation. On the contrary, it is about an ageless enemy of humans. Wait! I am not talking about the devil.(Even though he is very well, the root and the agent of fear and it’s one of his famous devices/weapons) I am referring to the evil of fear which is common to all and sundry. Follow along as I tell you bits of my experience with this evil.

When I was a little girl ; ) I wanted to be an epitome of perfection not in looks or anything but I wanted to be perfect in my decision-making even as a little girl and throughout my teenage years. I did not want to take wrong turns that would disappoint God, my parents and anyone who mattered to me. Unknowingly, I had began a brewery of fear in my life. As my adult years began to form, my “little brewery”  also grew as I introduced the microorganism and  yeast of “expectation of people”(about how my life should be and what ought to happen at certain periods of my life) and “self pride”(on how I had not made a blunder of my life in any major decision I had taken yet)

Before long, I added to my brewery; the fear of marrying the “wrong person”. Yes, I do believe there is a wrong and right person based on this criteria; the right person is your destiny helper and vice versa while the wrong person is your destiny thwart-er/breaker or destiny wrecker. Either ways, I hope you get my point. The fear of marrying the wrong person became so much of a concern that, its fermentation process became excellent! The microorganisms and yeast did well to release tons of carbon dioxide (confusion) and ethanol (stimulant & euphoric sensations). I hope, I haven’t lost you…Hang in there with me.                                   

I hold the belief that everything in life whether living or not has a smell to it.(You don’t have to agree or disagree). Anyways, sooner than later the sweet smell or stench of my brewery and incitement of the  fear of marrying the wrong person drew me to someone or someone to me. When I began talking to and eventually dated this man, my fear did not dissipate , rather the by -products of the fermentation process doubled. The CO2 (confusion) and ethanol (stimulation(s) and euphoria of having met “Mr Right”) were like the tidal waves of a storm;  up and down almost all the time.

When the relationship fell apart, I began to question my ability to make good decisions, something hitherto I had prided myself in (Pride definitely goes before fall as the Bible said in Proverbs 16:18). God began to reveal my heart to me as I pondered the events of the relationship. It was during this “heart surgery”, that I realized that I had misplaced my identity; you can read about this in an earlier blog post – Single ladies,ring on it? and also found out that the fear which I had harbored and stirred up led me to the “wrong person” like Job said in  Job 3:25 ; that what he feared; came upon him. Fear is not of God, rather God’s perfect love when established in your heart casts out fear 1 John 4:18. God’s truth of his faithfulness and perfect love subsequently set me free from this fear through God’s perfect love from the flavor/smell of the fear of marrying the wrong person.

In life we are all brewers. We brew and drink from our own brewery. Someone can influence what you brew but no one can brew for you or dictate what you brew because you are the first to taste of what you brew.If you don’t like what you brew, you can always change it. The choice is yours.

In life we are all brewers. We brew and drink from our own brewery.

What are you brewing or stirring up in your life?

Your fear might be with a different thing or in a different area of your life.. It can be fear of being alone, fear of cancer, death or even lack. Fear is a constant battle because fear is a proven and effective tool of the enemy and he’s not going to give up just because in one area of your life, you defeat him by Christ’s petfect love. He’ll keep bringing it up in different aspects  and areas of your life. However, the good news is that, but we have a high priest; Christ Jesus who is able to help us in our weakness.(Hebrews 4:15). He is faithful to cleanse you from every toxic effect of anything brewed in your life and able to make you whole again.
