We need to know the will of God and appreciate His plans so we can participate in fulfilling His purposes in every area of our lives. God has plans for every life and they are not set in concrete. He is also aware of the circumstances of our lives and our freedom to make choices. All these impact how His will is being done on earth. He has foreknowledge; He has set laws into motion, including the law of cause and effect. He is also all powerful in that He can make all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. (See Romans 8:28-30). Purpose can be defined as the original intention of the creator or manufacturer of a product. In the Greek language, it suggests a deliberate plan, a proposition, an advance plan, an intention and a design. It is...

What would this earth look like if every believer in Christ was strong in the Lord and in the power of His might? If every believer could handle their personal, family and national problems with prayers and the level of wisdom they were walking in? What if they could stand against the wiles of the devil and put him to flight by resisting him steadfastly in the faith? What if their consciousness of who they are in Christ was so strong that they did not yield to any deception of the enemy? What if they were speaking God's Word and seeing God's power changing circumstances around them? What if every believer was highly developed in character, that God could commit so much into their hands? What if we could fully represent God on earth like Jesus did when he was on earth? What if every believer had found their place...

“Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?” In Luke 6:46 our Lord Jesus asked this question when he was on earth and it is a question that still needs to be answered today. The question, amongst other things, challenges our understanding and application of His Lordship over us as well as our recognition of the fact that His Word should have authority over our lives. In our present day world, all these have a place in our study and thoughts. I believe that in response to this question we might answer, “Lord, the things that inform what we do have been established in us before we accepted you as our Lord, so we have no place for what you say. Moreover, what you say runs contrary to what we have been programmed to do and how we live our lives. By nature we...

A fulfilled life does not happen by accident! A fulfilled life is one who has released all that God put into that life to benefit the human race! The potentials within have been discovered, developed and deployed to bring maximum value added to humanity. Purpose accomplished! Assignment fulfilled! God's gift to us is the life given to us; our gift to Him is what we do with that life! A fulfilled life is lived intentionally! There are laws that govern every aspect of our being. We can observe the principles and laws through circumstances that are repeated throughout history. The laws require a force for them to be operational! The law of gravity needs the force of gravity. Where there is zero gravity the law does not operate. Some spiritual laws also require the force of faith. Mental or soulish laws require the force of habit or repetition. Natural laws require natural forces!...

The miraculous is usually preceded by instructions that are ridiculous when one reads through the bible. Some outstanding deeds of power, I mean the supernatural release of God’s power can be as a result of ridiculous instructions obeyed. The similarities that are seen in some of these demonstrations of power mean that there are lessons to learn from God’s Word if we shall go on and position ourselves to receive from God and experience His power. The first miracle Jesus did while on earth was the turning of water to wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee as recorded in John chapter 2. The lessons are very important and they are these: He was invited along with His disciples; His mother, Mary turned to Him when they needed help; She gave instructions to the servants: whatever He says to you, do it; He instructs them to fill pots with water and...

The last days, which we are in, are characterised by the news of the operations of satan on a large scale. The level of contradictions happening in many lives, gives one some concern. Nations, regions and individuals are not spared. These same days are designed by God for His people to experience victory at a level unprecedented in history. We need to know how to turn trials into victories and how to turn pressures into paths of pressing into greater heights in God. Let us start by establishing what and where the pressures are coming from. Luke 8:11-15 "Now the meaning of the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God. Those along the travelled road are the people who have heard; then the devil comes and carries away the message out of their hearts, that they may not believe (acknowledge Me as their Saviour and devote themselves to Me) and be saved [here and...

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalms 46:1). God is good and His mercy endures forever. He is worthy of our praise and honour. His thoughts towards us are thoughts of good and not evil to give us a future and an expected end. (1 Chronicles 16:34, Jeremiah 29:11). Our faith in Him and a life of expectancy and praise, yielding to God and allowing His Word to be final authority in our lives, will open us to the goodness of God like never before. My thoughts go to people who seem to fail to see God’s goodness in their lives and they seem to give Him a bad name because of their experiences. We all go through tough times but some come out better and others bitter. The foundation upon which our lives are built matter a lot to what and how we experience the...

  The complete man is strong in the Lord, in his convictions and he is not moved by external circumstances. He knows Him, whom he has believed. He knows himself, who he is in Christ, that he is loved by God no matter the situation he faces. He knows he will come out victorious, and whatever the enemy plans, God's wisdom in him will turn things around for good. He knows he has a destiny to fulfil, lives to influence and the Lord to please. He is committed, determined and focused on certain things and will not be deterred by anything. He learns to quickly forget the things behind and presses unto the high calling of God in Christ.   The following verses of scripture are for meditation for the Complete Man! Ephesians 4:21-32 Assuming that you have really heard Him and been taught by Him, as [all] Truth is in Jesus [embodied and personified...

God’s purpose for our lives is defined by what God had in mind when He created us or formed us in our mother’s womb. The stories of bible characters help us see the interplay between God, the person and other external forces playing parts in the outcomes of their lives. God is not going to impose His plans or purposes on us and Satan will do anything to get us to do his bidding. We also have choices that play a major deciding factor in what we do, say and eventually the outcomes of our lives. When tragedy strikes there is usually a cause, when good things happen we can also see a cause or a purpose for them.  Our outcomes are not in the hands of chance, or Satan. We can cooperate with God to change future outcomes even if the past was simply not within our control or influence. For...

What happens to you is not as important as what happens in you. Too often we spend time and resources on what happens to us rather than what happens in us. It is right to expect good things to happen to us but it is what happens in us that will determine what happens to us on a long run. Now we need to be reaching out and our growth goals should reflect the increase we anticipate in every area of our life and ministry. If we are going to stand the test of time we are going to keep an eye on what is happening in us. What are your priorities? Is God your Number one? What is your motivation? Is it selfish or self-centred. What is your focus? What is the fuel you are burning to do what you are doing? Is merely emotional or spiritual? What about integrity of heart?...
