Matthew 6:33

Seek God First, Matthew 6,33

And it says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”.

If I were to see through all our hearts and make a list of the things we pursue after individually, the list would be endless as we all are different. I bet the highlights in all our list would be food, clothing, housing, family, job fulfillment, societal relevance and importance to name a few.

However, God can see through our hearts and knows all our needs and desires. He took a good look at it all and gave us an order to apply to these things we pursue. Continue reading “Matthew 6:33”

Who’s Speaking?

Too many choices who's speaking

Hey….! How are you doing? Yeah, you? I really wish I could be sure that these posts have been a blessing to you. But am trusting God that you have picked one or two things from here.

By the way, am doing just well, great if I may say. Thanks for asking! *smiles*

To the matter of the day.

Have you ever encountered a situation where you had to make a decision on an issue that was pretty heavy and crucial to your life and you just didn’t know which way to go? As an adult I bet that has happened more than once and more importantly, it will happen again as long as you live. Continue reading “Who’s Speaking?”

Watch “This”

watch your heart

Before we continue on the tithing series – should you tithe or should you not tithe as a Christian, I want you to take some time out today to learn how to watch the contents of your heart.

It is a no-brainer that your life is evidently the result of the contents of your heart. Proverbs 4:23 signified this by admonishing us to “keep” our hearts saying “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”.

As if the Wisdom of Solomon was not enough, a greater than Solomon even Jesus Christ came and said to us “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies” – Matthew 15:17-19

Today we will look at two things we need to watch out for and two ways keep our hearts from them. Continue reading “Watch “This””

Tithing As A Christian

Hi! How have you been since my last post?

Hope it has been explosive! Good explosive I mean!

Anyway, today we will be looking into the matter of tithing as a Christian.

Here is the thing, am not really fun of digging into the legalities of the church system but this issue of tithing has somehow become a major one for some Christians today. Should I give my tithes or should I not? Continue reading “Tithing As A Christian”

When I need comfort…

comfort giphy

I came to encourage you today, maybe you are even going through a tough time and at this point you think God has turned His back to you.

That couldn’t be further from the truth. He is right there in that trouble with you. Despite your pain and worry, God still loves you and has you in His thoughts. He understands more than you may even know. Know that He loves you and that you are loved perfectly. Continue reading “When I need comfort…”

Just Say It

confession-of-faith

A happy new week to you!

Today we are going to learn to say what we believe! Interesting right!

Yeah, personally am not one for positive confessions or speaking the word of faith. I have blamed my melancholy temperament for ages.

Yet scripture says in Proverbs 18:20 & 21 that “a man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue:  and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. Mark 11:23 says that “you shall have what you say”!

What! He shall be filled with the increase of his lips? They that love it? Come on! It is time to love it!

Yeah, but am not going to just say this and leave you hanging. If I don’t help you out, you probably will still have just head knowledge and not the understanding needed to put this to practice! Continue reading “Just Say It”

Am Loved, You Are Loved Perfectly!

In today’s world, true love has become such a scarce commodity you begin to wonder if it ever existed. Besides, what is even true love? When can love be said to be true? Hmm!

I want to be loved and to be confident that am loved. I want to believe you want that too.

I remember when I would go searching, in all the wrong places for love. Haven’t we all done that? Luckily, I would see one I liked and admired even, and then I would give my all and hope this one just might love me back, the way I want to be loved. He or she would love me perfectly and completely.

Hmm…..I always came back sorry, disappointed and heart broken. Disappointed not in the person but in love. Continue reading “Am Loved, You Are Loved Perfectly!”

Be Grateful!

be grateful

Hey! It is a new week and I want to remind you that you ought to be grateful!

That is not too hard. Or is it? You don’t need a ceremony to be grateful. Or do you?

There is a saying that goes thus: “Am not where I want to be but I sure am not where I used to be”. So every progress made no matter how small is a good enough reason to be grateful.

Am particularly grateful for this week. Some 6 years ago, exactly on a week like this my world was turned upside down. Continue reading “Be Grateful!”
