Understanding God

So, I decided to share something today I titled “Understanding God” or maybe I should have said “having the right scriptural interpretation and understanding”. Whichever one you choose, I hope it blesses your heart.

Proverbs 2:1–5: “My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Understanding, according to Microsoft Encarta Dictionary 2009, is the ability to grasp, infer, perceive, and explain the meaning or nature of something or somebody; it is to have knowledge of something – a particular subject, area, or situation. However, Job 32:8 says, “But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding”; and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.Continue reading “Understanding God”

System Upgrade – Mankind v2.0

System-Upgrade_Banners-001Yeah, I know what you are thinking. It is not World Technology Day Celebration and neither am I celebrating technology today but in the spirit of technological advancements – iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 11…LOL, I would like to “teach” some biblical truth. Now, please do not get me wrong, I love iPhone and am currently seriously in need of a MacOS laptop! But today, I want to share some biblical truth, coming from what we know and are familiar with to what we are not used to. We know and understand why Apple, Microsoft and every other tech-based company keep on issuing upgrades and that is the knowledge you need to benefit from today’s post.

Happy New Year guys and welcome to 20….18!!!

Am excited and glad to welcome you all to 2018, this shall be a year of glad tidings for us all. Amen.

So, it’s the beginning of another year and some people might be entering this year with just the perfect amount of trepidation, resulting in inactivity and preventing them from attempting or possibly doing what God has asked them to do in 2018 just so they won’t have to confront another failure. Probably due to extended failures of the past. Continue reading “It is okay to hope again..”

Stand Up And Get Out!

stand up and get out-001Merry Christmas guys!

#Singing…in a throaty voice

I wish you a merry Christmas. I wish you a merry Christmas. I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Remember once again that it is Christ’s birth that we celebrate today. Share the love and show the love!

             Related: The Reason For The Season

In that same vein, today I will share something that has been on my mind for a while especially as it is the birth of Christ that we celebrate. I will pose it as a question, maybe it will awaken you to whom I write today. Why are you still in that oppression? Yes, you. Continue reading “Stand Up And Get Out!”

Self-Confidence is not of God

self-confidence-001.jpgSelf-confidence? Not of God? Yes, I am of the view that self-confidence is not of God and with the following points of mine. Before that, I want to joyously welcome you again into the month of December! December is that month that carries a lot of mixed feelings. Some are grateful for a successful year while others are wondering what happened to all their goals. Some are gearing up for 2018 with new goals and more determination while others are wondering what the difference would be in order to achieve any goals next year. Well, it’s up to you but if I were you, I would choose to be grateful.

In today’s world, self-confidence has become a must-have trait or quality to be successful. Let me introduce myself, “my name is Bassey Etim and I am blah blah blah and also very self-confident”. I recently used that in an application, LOL. After I took a closer look at that statement, I realized how wrong I was and please let me explain myself.

The Reason For The Season

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:  and the government shall be upon his shoulder:  and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.   The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

Happy new month guys! A very happy and meritorious December is my prayer for you and your family!

It’s that time of the year again and I just wanted to remind someone today that Jesus is the reason for this season. I woke up this morning super excited, super delighted and super happy because of my Lord and Saviour who has given me victory in 2017. You should come and see me dance to this song below – Victory by Eben! He just said all that I would have loved to say in this post! Continue reading “The Reason For The Season”

In Surrender

waving white flag

Hello there!

How are you holding up? I hope everything is going well.

Recently, something reminded me of Jerry in the cartoon Tom and Jerry. Oh the times he called for a truce with his tiny white flag, waving it before the acquiesced Tom in mock surrender. The memory brought a smile to my face and I hope it does for you too.

For this week I want to share very briefly something on surrender or the act of surrendering. There is strength in surrendering, it takes more than an inability to continue in a war to surrender. Continue reading “In Surrender”

The Eleventh Month

Zechariah 1:7, “Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying…

The Jewish name for the eleventh month is the month “Sebat” or “Shebat” and since I am not to lecture you on the Jewish calendar but to wish you a happy new month – Happy New Month guys! I appreciate and love you from the bottom of my heart, sincerely! Better late than never right!!! Continue reading “The Eleventh Month”
