LISTENING TO GOD

LISTENING TO GOD
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.” (James 1:5-7 NIV)
——————————————————————
Thoughts for Today
We should never make caregiving decisions lightly. When we need wisdom, we need to ask God. He is never annoyed when we come to him in faith to ask for wisdom. As today’s scripture promises, he gives to us generously.
George Müller was a Christian pastor whose life spanned most of the nineteenth century. He was known for his close walk with Christ and his desire to follow God’s will. He lived what he taught.
God used Müller to provide excellent care for many thousands of orphans, most of whom had been terribly neglected. He depended totally on God’s supernatural provision. Although he never solicited any funds, during his lifetime the equivalent of $120 million (in today’s dollars) were donated to his work. Read more on The George Müller Foundation website.
Consider This …
As caregivers, we can learn much from Müller’s instruction on how to listen to God’s leading when making decisions:

I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter.
Â
Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If I do so, I make myself liable to great delusions.
Â
I seek the will of the Spirit through, or in connection with, the Word of God.
Â
Next, I take into account providential circumstances. These often plainly indicate God’s will in connection with His Word and Spirit.
Â
I ask God in prayer to reveal His will to me aright.
Â
Thus, through prayer to God, the study of the Word, and reflection, I come to a deliberate judgment according to the best of my ability and knowledge.

IN LOVE WITH LOVE

Today is just one of those days, I wish I was in love.

I remember the rush, the feeling of being crazy about someone and feeling loved. i guess it doesn’t help that i’ve been listening to ‘little mix’secret love song.

why can’t you hold me in the street?

why can’t you kiss me on the dance floor?

i wish that it could be like that

why can’t we be like that

cause i’m yours.

 

I want to feel like that again

A great man is gone

Today it hit me hard. Choko is gone, I remember his catch word ‘Akanchawa’ he always said that instead of a bad word. All this while I was in partial denial, I still feel like when I go to Ph I will see him, in one of our PS gatherings/reunion. He touched my life personally, I can never forget him, he is a pure soul, I remember how he went out of his way to assist my sister in her time of need.

Today, I feel guilty when I laugh, any time I start enjoying something I feel bad like why should I have fun, why should I be happy when you are gone. How do I deal with this.

I can’t ….

GOD-CENTERED

GOD-CENTERED
“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NLT)
——————————————————————
Thoughts for Today

Earlier this week we mentioned hopeful passion is God- and others-centered. If we have hopeful passion, we are passionate about things that glorify God and help others in some way. The apostle Paul remained God-focused in his passion for the Lord despite many difficulties. He said, “For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances” (Philippians 4:11 NIV).

Paul’s passion was motivated by a consuming love for Jesus and a great desire to share the love of Jesus with others. Though he experienced ridicule, hatred, beatings, imprisonment, and ultimately execution, he never lost that passion. Why? Because his passion was motivated by love. It was not self-centered. It was God-centered and people-centered. And so no matter what happened to him, he was content as long as he was doing all for the glory of God.

Consider this …

What are some ways we can be more like Paul? How can we be certain our passion is centered on God and others and not ourselves? We need to know Jesus more intimately by spending more time with him and in the Word. Meditate on Bible passages. Pray . . . and listen to what God is saying. Sometimes we may simply need more “stillness” in our life. “Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10 NLT).
——————————————————————
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” (Psalm 139:23-24 NLT)

These thoughts were drawn from . . .

Rise above it. There is GREATNESS within you

​Rise above the pain!  You are bigger than your circumstances or your life situation. Your life is not defined by your relationship status, your current job, your bank account, or anything that you have or have not done in the past. Do not listen to any person or automatic negative thoughts that may have conditioned you to think of yourself or your life as a failure.
Do not ever choose a permanent solution for a temporary problem. You have people who need you and who are counting on you. There is always another day and another way. Rise above the pain and know that deep inside of you there is another person waiting to break through. You have the ability to rebuild, regroup, recover and revive!!  Breathe life into your dream.  Know that you can live a meaningful and purposeful life. You are an unrepeatable miracle and your dream can live…despite what you feel or what you are going through right now!  You have something special.
 You have GREATNESS within you!

Old time believers against New generation believers

​Wow!!

Kindly read this lines from Dr Paul Enenche, very inspiring. 
“Iron sharpens iron”.

In the late 70’s and early 80’s, when believers met each other, their mode of greeting was: 
‘How are you,brother? 

Have you heard about the Welsh revival? 

Did you read about Evan Roberts? 

I saw something in ‘Herald of His Coming’ that just shook me. 
I read something about Smith Wigglesworth. 

Did you hear how John Hyde stained the walls of his room with the breath of his prayer? 
I read that Maria Woodworth Ether was approaching a place to preach and fifty miles from the place where she was, people were falling under the anointing…”
Those were the kinds of things we said to each other. 

When you heard it, it set you ablaze. 

Your friend might say to you, ‘When I read that, I locked up myself for ten hours. I did not come out’. 

And you look at him, ‘You said how many hours? I will see you later!’ 

You just go into the room and lock yourself up: 

‘What! What am I doing with my life?’ 
And you go on and on. 
That was how we sharpened each other in those days. 
Iron sharpeneth iron! 
We learned of William Booth of the Salvation Army. 

We learned of Charles G. Finney riding a horse through town and everyone was crying for his or her sins… 

We read of D.L Moody: They said, ‘God is looking for a man to use, and he is looking for a man that will not care who takes the glory.’ D.L. Moody, a shoe maker, said, ‘By the grace of God, I will be that man’ … 
When you read that, it sets you on fire. And if you heard it from someone who read it from somewhere and shared it with you, you would be sharpened. 

That was how we sharpened each other. 
Today, it is different. 

When two pastors meet, you hear things like, ‘Pastor, how is the church building? Have you finished it now? 

I like this neck tie of yours; where did you buy it from? 

This wristwatch is powerful! 

Who helped you to get this car? 

Can you assist me to get the car also? I like it! 

Your suit is powerful. Is it ready-made or someone sewed it? 

Who is your barber?  I like the way you cut your hair. 
These the vanities believers discuss these days – things of no eternal consequences. It is very rare before you can come into the presence of a servant of God and leave edified. We rarely hear that a person went to see a man of God, a real man of God and left there challenged, with his soul set on fire. It is very very rare. 
My heart yearns for those days… A brother would read a book that changed his life and he would share the inspiration: 

Have you seen Smith Wigglesworth ‘Apostle of Faith’? You need to read it. 

John G. Lake’s ‘Adventure in God’? You need to read it. 

Leonard Ravenhill’s ‘Why Revival Tarries’? ‘Sodom had no Bible’? 

What about E.M. Bounds ‘The Power of Prayer’? 

Charles Spurgeons ‘His Power in Us’? 

E.W Kenyon’s ‘Two Kinds of Faith’?

A.W Tozer’s ‘In Pursuit of God’? 

Oswald J. Smiths ‘The Man God

Uses’? 
Those were qualitative materials that we advertised and used to change our lives … 
Who is it that is sharpening you? Who are the people around you sharpening your life? 
Please, watch your company. 
Some pastors had more fire until they entered the circle of friends they are in today. 

Watch the persons you call friends. 
Iron sharpens iron. Nothing sharpens iron like iron.”
 

Dr. Paul Enenche.

Relationship seen through science

​“Do you think I am shallow?”

“No.”

She looks down. “You do not find me materialistic? That I place too much value on money?”

“All woman loves money.”

That sounds wrong no matter how she think about it. “You do not detest materialism?”

“This is not what I mean. From a biological standpoint, males spend a big portion of their life vying for power while females will usually measure her mate base on the degree of his power. This is in line with the laws of nature so that they can find a mate that can offer them the best chance for survival and provide for the next generation.”

She can feel her head throbbing. “Are you going to start on Animal Planet now?”

“Human beings are also animals and it is in line with nature and social norms for woman to love money. Generally, men who are more competitive tend to be richer and are thus better mates to bring up the next generation. The pursuit for better material conditions is intrinsic and enforces the sense of security. It is also a way of looking after the next generation of species, which is why I say, there is nothing wrong with woman loving money.”

She can feel that her world is getting royally warp by this mysterious thing he calls science. “So according to you, human beings are the same as animals?”

“There are differences though.” He looks quietly into her eyes. “For example, human beings believe in love.”

Letting go and Moving Forward 

​Stay connected with people who inspire, nourish and bring out the best in you.  It takes time to pull yourself together and to heal if you have been hurt, humiliated, or become emotionally broken because of what you have gone through.  You can become disconnected with the real you and forget who you really are.  It is necessary to read, listen and focus on positive things.  Things that strengthen your mind, develop your confidence and fortify your spirit. Create a strategy that will allow you to rid your life of people whose only intention is to strip, destroy, or take you down.
Be aware that there are certain situations that are just not good for you.  Make a conscious, deliberate effort to focus your mind exclusively on things that will build you up, give you hope and expand the possibilities in all dimensions of your life.  You have the capacity and the ability to rebuild your life. What you have gone through can be used to develop another part of yourself.   Stay connected with positive people with the knowledge that you will get through this. 
You have something special.   You have GREATNESS within you!

Keeping to your word

Your word is your bond. When you keep saying things and making promises you can’t fulfill your people begin to see you as just someone that talks without backing your word with actions.
