Wait on God

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalms 27:14 NIV

When we become impatient and react without thinking, we can do damage to ourselves and others. Sometimes when we pray and God doesn’t respond quickly enough, we decide to take matters into our own hands and things get worse as a result. When God tells you to wait, He is saying, “Trust me with the timing, the ways and means, and you will get a better result.”

David wrote: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!” (vv. 13-14 NKJV).

Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out?

It can be tough to wait on the Lord. It’s much easier in the heat of the moment to lose your calm. Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out? Do you think this situation will be different? Not a chance! What do you want? Temporary relief or a permanent solution? Haste makes waste!

When you act in haste, you do things you can end up regretting and having to apologize for. Or worse, justifying! Impulsiveness got King Saul into serious trouble. Instead of waiting for the prophet Samuel to arrive and the priests to offer a peace offering to God ensuring their victory over the Philistines, Saul grew impatient, usurped the role of a priest, and offered the sacrifice himself. When Samuel asked him why, he replied, “I felt compelled” (1Sa 13:12 NKJV). And the result? “Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly…now your kingdom shall not continue’” (vv. 13-14 NKJV). So, wait on God.

A new birth

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him will not perish but have eternal life. Amen!

The objective of Jesus Christ on earth subsisted in bringing humanity to a fresh experience with God, the old way had failed thus he came to begin a new thing altogether. For a new system to come to force the old one had to be eradicated.

He came to fulfill what the Mosaic law failed to achieve since righteousness by works had proven to be difficult a new system of Grace had to be introduced. In place of being justified by works, a new system had to be introduced to mankind. God has loved mankind from the beginning of times we see that in his relationship with the Israelites how he loved and protected them.

He loved Israelites so much that whenever they followed after pagan gods, it infuriated him. How was this generation after all God had done for them, still they went after idols? A lasting antidote was needed to conserve people. Everyday people trespassed and sin ignited God to anger.

We were lost in sin, worshipping cows, monkeys, and trees so our land was cursed with infirmities. We were lost to the extent of idolizing kings, cultures, and worldly systems. Every society existed in an isolated world, different gods meant different rituals and customs. Confusion abounded and people became more wicked for whoever worshipped a different deity was a sworn enemy to a different tribe.

A new system had to come into force whereby the whole universe would worship one God. Worshipping one God meant unity, thus we became one body through the Christ. The cross reflected the unification of mankind to their creator. Our sworn enemy lucifer the father of lies and hatred was defeated on the cross, the cross became a new symbol of hope to mankind.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].” Then He rolled up the scroll [having stopped in the middle of the verse], gave it back to the attendant and sat down [to teach]; and the eyes of all those in the synagogue were [attentively] fixed on Him. He began speaking to them: “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing and in your presence.”
Luke 4:18‭-‬21 AMP

Jesus Christ was sent to set us free from slavery. Yes, it is possible to quit alcohol and smoking, all it takes is a new birth in Christ. Nothing is impossible the gospel of Christ can change the poor and make them rich. The reason for failure is ignorance, our sworn enemy has kept people in poverty and darkness for a long time. This is the season to advance and claim what we deserve.

Why would you live your life chasing after vanity, the world has nothing to offer. Worldly fashions and beliefs are completely a trap to keep us in cognitive slavery. Adultery destroys the very essence and integrity of any marriage, shun worldly advice of experimenting with sex. God designed you to make progress thus anything wasting your time and life is a weapon of the devil.

These are the times humanity more than ever needs to give their lives to Jesus Christ. We are only stronger in Christ. The world and its ideologies have offered us nothing but merely arguments and confusion. We can’t afford to live in this darkness anymore, only Jesus Christ can offer us the light. God has never changed and his words never changed, scientists are now turning to the Bible for solutions.

It only provokes sense for us as individuals to lament our old ways and be immersed in the kingdom of God. You still have an opportunity today to submit your spirit to Christ it’s not excessively late. You have searched after the happiness the world proposed but it only got you sick, frustrated, and disappointed, why not try Jesus Christ today.

The real meaning of freedom

What really is freedom ? Are we ever free ? I have been asking myself this question for some time now.The word freedom comes from the word freo which simply mean a situation where you are not in bondage to something or someone or /in possession of particular privileges.

With that in mind being in bondage is simply a state of not getting any particular privileges. This is a difficult case , some spend years as Christians but still not getting privileges of good health. If you have a chronic problem you are now identifying with chances are you are under attack.

The privileges we have in Christ are love ,health ,riches and so forth. Being in Christ washes away all condemnation thus we no longer live in guilty. Being in Christ also means we can approach the throne of Grace with confidence without no fear at all for Jesus Christ is our advocate.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 
2 Corinthians 8:9 NIV

Most people live their life in bondage ,their mind has become accustomed to a slavery mentality , even after the yoke of slavery has been removed from their necks they can’t move from the place they were enslaved. Their mind has been programmed to taking orders from their masters ,they have lost faith in themselves and in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

God created man for dominion , He equipped man with management skills on creation .Adam was given the garden of Eden to manage .Adam was given the power to name things as his mind perceived them . Whatever he saw in an animal he would name it as such. From the outlook he separated wild animals and domestic animals. He named trees ,infact he named everything he saw , including a woman.

With all that freedom ,God only gave him one law or / condition , not to eat from the tree of life. Funny he chose to obey his wife disregarding the owner of the garden. Of course we know that snake gave them ideas ,and Eve she saw that the fruit was good for food ,but Adam ate too ,whether to please his woman to just experiment with disobedience we are not sure.

Adam sacrificed his relationship with God in trying to please his woman. The funny part about this story is that while Eve was busy discussing God’s ordinances with the devil Adam wasn’t around. The devil won Eve’s mind first and Eve simply convinced Adam …

It’s basically a tricky situation the one in charge of the garden was nowhere to be found , and Eve was just wondering around the garden alone when the snake saw an opportunity to destroy humanity.

God gave Adam the responsibility of the garden and he told him the do’s and don’ts so he was to train wife and kids about the dangers of eating fruits from that tree … but did Adam teach Eve at all?

They had freedom (possession of privileges) as long as they adhered to the rules stipulated for the Eden experience. Thus their freedom was dependent on Adam playing his part in educating his family about the importance of obeying only that single law (command).

But Adam was hibernating while Eve was going around Eden without any understanding of the importance of that law. Without a full understanding of any law , we are bound to err in judgement. Rules of the land if not properly explained ,are useless to our families.

For freedom to exist Adam had to be a priest in his family .God designed a man to be fully responsible for teaching his generation about God’s ordinances. Once man move from this responsibility the whole generation is destroyed.

We are facing the same problem in our society , our men are busy indulging in worldly pleasures and at the same time exposing their families to satan’s agenda . Whilst our man are getting intoxicated with alcohol and drugs our children are adopting homosexual tendencies from the television.

Whilst our men are occupying themselves with sports and entertainment who is grooming the kids for kingdom purposes . Our kids start drinking and smoking at a younger age and parents can’t notice anything because they are too absorbed in vanity.

Change is possible and we are here to help. Is addictions destroying your marriage contact us here .Man was created to be priest in his family, it is a man’s duty to protect and meet all the demands of his family.

You can be free from that yoke of addiction.

You can be free today ,let us help you reach your full potential .It is possible for your marriage to be restored . Change begins when man start taking full responsibility of their families.

Freedom can be yours today ..

Shalom
