QUENCH THAT FIRE!

Text: James 3:16

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

Marital conflicts are real in many homes…Yes!

But, please, let it be minus your home, okay?

Know also that…No marriage that continues in conflicts, can ever enjoy rest, prosperity, progress or abundance…No matter how much you work for…or pray for it…No matter how much you desire or wish for it!

Because Jesus already made us understand that…

“…Any kingdom that fights against itself will end up in ruins. And any family or community splintered by strife will fall apart.” – Matthew 12:25 TPT

Please, quench that fire of conflicts, suspicion, finding faults with each other, unfaithfulness, lies, inconsistencies, in-law rivalries…

I mean…you yourself know what always lights that evil fire of strife, fighting, nagging, malice…in your home…

Just stop it, okay? Enough is enough!

It’s time to let peace, joy and laughter reign in your home…

It’s not up to God…It’s up to you! Yes, you!

WORD FOR TODAY

JUST A COUNSEL FOR YOU, DEAR…

Text: John 1:16

“For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.” AMPC

It’s important that you always stay full ( full of love, full of power, full of grace, full of the Spirit, full of strength, full of peace, full of joy, full of faith, full of wisdom, full of money, etc)…

Because it’s only out of your fullness that others can receive anything from you…

And also because as much as God wants you to be a blessing to others, he wouldn’t want you bankrupt…or burning out! Read Genesis 12:2.

This therefore requires that you take heed to yourself…according to Deuteronomy 4:9,

“Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently…” Read also 1 Timothy 4:16.

Never do anything to impress anybody – not even to impress God…it’s not necessary!

In Christ God is impressed with you already…because he rates you with Jesus! Read 1 John 4:17.

Always labour to be approved of God, more than you care about what people think or say about you….Because at the end of the day, it’s God that rewards.

If God leaves your reward to men, trust me, they may never qualify you for it…Or they will always short-change you…and call it, “Just a token from us.”…I tell you! 😁

Let whatever you do be a natural outflow of who you are on the inside…

Ecclesiastes 11:3 says,

“If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth…”

God will always check out your heart for your motive for doing whatever it is you are doing, or want to do. Yes!

He said so in 1 Samuel 16:7,

“…The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” NLT

Please, for the sake of others, don’t be comfortable with emptiness, half-full, mediocrity or poverty of any kind!

Anytime you’re thinking, “I can manage with this.”, remember this message.

God doesn’t want you managing through life, he wants you having things in abundance…”to the full, till it overflows”! (John 10:10 – AMP).

In conclusion, let’s look at 2 Corinthians 9:7-8,

“Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity!

Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way.

He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do.” TPT

What a joy! I see you living full and so wealthy…in Jesus name!

MAKE THAT CHANGE NOW!

To whom it may concern…

TIME TO MAKE THAT CHANGE!

Text: Ruth 1:14-16

“… Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye. But Ruth clung tightly to Naomi. “Look,” Naomi said to her, “your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. You should do the same.” But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.” NLT See… If you go on in life with the wrong god, and the wrong people, your future is not guaranteed… When Ruth changed God and people…her story changed! her captivity turned! her destiny was turned around!

Please…Use such a time as this to do the same…If you must!

Time and opportunity to re-write your story…or change the circumstances of your life for good come but once!

That’s what king Solomon was making us understand in Ecclesiastes 9:11,

“I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle.

The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy.

And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.” NLT That right place to be is in Christ…And you have the chance to relocate into him now…with all the uncertainties the world is facing presently!

Receive courage and boldness now to do what God has been waiting for you to do, for things to change in your life…in Jesus matchless name!

Do enjoy a marvelous day, friends! God is still on the throne!

GOOD NEWS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY…

IS YOUR FAITH IN THE HIGHEST GEAR?

Precious and beloved of God…

If your faith has been on neutral, please, it’s time to switch it on to the highest gear…

You know, like you’ll switch on the auxiliary gear, to get your truck through the sand, a muddy or rocky place?

Because the days of “…the bowl did not run out of flour nor did the jar run out of oil.” are here again!

The days of “…you will never go hungry or ever be in need….You will have all you want to eat, and you will give thanks to the Lord your God…” are here again!

The days of “…Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts”…

That is, though the markets and shops be closed…your store house will be full of food stuff, meat, fish, provisions, etc…As you’re cooking and eating and using the food and provisions you have, God will be multiplying them to you!

The days of “when thou hast eaten and art full… when thou hast eaten and art full…” are here again!

The days that water will be turning into wine…just to meet your needs and save you any embarrassment, are here again!

Please read : 1/Kings 17:16; Deuteronomy 8:9-10; 2 Kings 3; Deuteronomy 8:13 and John 2:1-11 and hear these things from God yourself!

Glory to God!

Somebody who understands what I’m saying here…Shout, “God punish the devil!” Yes! Yes! Yes!

THE ENDANGERED FAMILIES…

WHILE THE MARKETS ARE RELOCKED DOWN…

Have you ever considered how many women make up the sellers, especially, in our Nigerian markets…all over the nation?

One morning we were driving through a market on Warri to Owerri road…

And I marveled at the myriad of women selling this or that…offloading their wares from trunks of mostly dilapidated trucks and vehicles…hustling from here to there…

I couldn’t hold back the tears as I wondered, “Where are the husbands of these women?”

Then you pass through the town and you see the ones frying akara, yam, sweet potato and plantain…or the ones roasting either corn, plantain or yam…

Or the ones going from shop to shop with their “Abacha” on their heads…looking for buyers…

Or the ones pushing their cooked rice, beans and stew through the streets, or construction sites, in a truck to feed the workers breakfast, lunch and dinner…

Many of all these women don’t get back home until very late in the night…to still cook for their husbands and children…

Most of them are the financial pillars in their homes…

You’ll even be surprised to know that some of them have sponsored their sons and daughters through their secondary schools and universities, both in-broad and abroad…Some even sponsor their children’s weddings…

And now…they’re “locking down” the markets…

My heart has been weighed down all morning, thinking…”What is going to happen to the income of all the families that these tireless women “bread-win”, while the markets are “locked down”?

Somebody please tell me…😭😭😭😭😭😭?

WORD FOR TODAY

IS YOUR ACCOUNT IN RED OR…?

Text : Proverbs 4:20-21

“My son, attend to my words;

incline thine ear unto my sayings.

Let them not depart from thine eyes;

keep them in the midst of thine heart.”

Do you know your heart is to you what the bank is to you in the physical?

People put away their money, and valuable things like expensive gold jewelries, diamonds, etc in the bank for safe keeping, don’t they?

Even so, God expects you to put away his Word in your heart for a time of need.

Anytime you’re studying or hearing God’s Word, you’re actually making deposits in your Word bank (your heart).

This is so that, in the case of any challenge or satanic assault, you can confidently make withdrawals.

You, know of course, that those whose accounts are fat with money never shake, worry, go to any man, or run around looking for help in time of need…because they know they are rich in money – sitting cool in their accounts. They just transfer…or go and withdraw!

Even so, believers who have rich Word accounts in their hearts (their Word bank)…don’t cry to God or any man…nor do they shake, in the face of any challenge or opposition from hell!

For instance, in Luke 4:1-14 when the devil came at Jesus with a barrage of temptations…Jesus simply made withdrawals from his Word bank.

How? Read what he said in Matthew 12:34…

And what happened? Luke 4:13 says,

“When the Devil finished tempting Jesus in every way, he left him…” GNT

As you begin to draw out from your Word bank now, with your mouth…I see every devil troubling your life, your mind, your, emotions, your body, your marriage, your business, family, children, or whatever leave you for ever, now, in the name of Jesus!

You are supposed to so value God’s Word that you’re laying it up somewhere…That somewhere is your heart.

Job 22:22 says,

“Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth,

and lay up his words in thine heart ( not in your head).”

Your heart is the perfect bank God has provided for the putting away of his Word…for your prosperity and total wellbeing here on earth. Read 3 John 1:2.

That is why the Word you hear, or see when you read, must necessarily enter your heart…Only then can you be sure that it will answer to you when you need it. Read Mark 4:13-20; John 1:12.

That’s why I always say, “The Word Of God targets our hearts not our heads…You receive the Word with your heart, not with your head!” Read Psalm 119:130.

It is in your heart that the Word you receive mixes with faith to give you good reports (that is, victory, testimonies). Read Hebrews 4:2.

If your Word account is poor…or always in red, you will always be in trouble…You will always be a victim of any evil the devil throws at you…And you’re like, “God, where are you? God, why me?”

A rich Word account will always keep the devil at bay in your life…and in everything that concerns you…

Because you’ll just keep making withdrawals as the Holy Spirit inspires you (in prayers, faith declarations, faith confessions). Read Romans 10:6-10.

Only the Word that has entered your heart will profit you, heal you, deliver you, make you free, make you wise, make you strong…and keep you alive, no matter how death rages everywhere!

However…I must tell you this: only a heart that loves and honors God can value and retain God’s Word. That’s right!

FAMILY LIFE UNIVERSITY

IDENTIFICATION

The first identification was in marriage…Genesis 3… Adam chose to identify with his wife in her mistake… That’s what love does…It does not reject, condemn, or expose the one loved… It takes responsibility…ready to bear the disgrace and punishment…Isaiah 54:4

That’s why Ephesians 5:25; 31-32

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it…

“And this is why a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become “one flesh.”

This is a huge mystery, and I don’t pretend to understand it all. What is clearest to me is the way Christ treats the church.” MSG

I tell you…We haven’t even started understanding this thing called “Marriage” !

Help Lord!

WORD FOR TODAY

YOU DON’T HAVE ANY EXCUSE!

Text :Matthew 1:21

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Jesus had never been Christ before!

He had never seen anyone save his people from sin before!

He had no example to follow…No biographies to read for his kind of mission…No testimonies to read about…

Yet he made it!

There were no footsteps for him to follow…No references…Nobody to counsel him…Nobody to pray for him…Or pray the prayer of agreement with him…

Yet he made it! He finished the work!

He said so himself, “I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father…” John 17:4-5 NLT

Note that his mission was not in another world different from this same world full of all manner of oppositions and limitations!

His mission was not in Mars, space or Jupiter…but on this same earth where you and I live in!

Note also that when Jesus walked this earth to fulfill his mission…the devil and his demons were very much around…

Yet he finished his work…And of him all of humanity now have the privilege and blessing of salvation from sin, sickness, disease, poverty and death!

And he told you and I that he has left us an example that we should follow in his steps.

So you see… you don’t have any excuse…I tell you!

Instead of wallowing in frustration, self-pity, murmuring and complaining in your struggles to make it…looking for who will help you…

What you need to do is, settle down with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John…and find out how Jesus made it…

What worked for him?

What was the secret of his victories over all the challenges, oppositions and limitations he faced (because there were plenty of them)?

That’s the question!

Then, if you are in Christ…move on to the epistles and find out what you have to your advantage too – What privileges Jesus’ accomplishment of his mission has purchased for you…because you must make it too!

Know that this has nothing to do with religion at all…Yes!

Religion has shrouded everything about Jesus in mysteries…so much that humanity is being denied of the benefits of his accomplished mission…It was not for him, or for God…It was all for you and I!

Now…Just like Jesus had his own mission, you are also destined to accomplish a peculiar mission here on earth for the benefit of humanity…

You are not on excursion or for fanfare here on earth…Purpose is the reason why you were born at all…If there was no purpose, you didn’t need to be born! Read Jeremiah 1:5.

Purpose gives you the privilege of leaving a legacy…an example for generations coming after you…That’s how to continue living even after you’re gone from here.

Yes…you can live forever!

Friend, it’s time to stop chasing shadows!

It’s time to stop all the envy, bitterness, jealousy, foolishness, careless living, unhealthy competition, shoulder-thrusting and personality clashes!

Nobody is holding what belongs to you…it’s all in you! Read Philemon 1:6.

Nobody needs to go down or die for you to make it…the death of Jesus and his going down into hell…and rising again has taken care of that!

It’s time to stop walking in other people’s shadows!

Enough of excuses…It’s time to give your life a meaning!

Come on now!
