God has loved us while we were still sinners. His love for us is demonstrated all through his book the bible It is shown to us on the book of Genesis when God made men the father of all things. He gave men from day one superiority amongst all things, neither did he want him to lack anything this is described  at the garden of Eden when he saw that Adam was lonely and he needed a companion the woman Eve. This alone demonstrates that he provides for our deepest needs, he gives us beyond what we think of. For this was not Adam had envisioned. It is written that God will give us things that no eye has seen and that no ear has heard abundance as most of us Pentecostal churches call it. This yet again demonstrating how much our Father from heaven loves us. He gave us his only son Jesus Christ to come and die for us to show how much he wants us to be his children. He is a forever loving father. He is Jehovah Ralpha the one who heals us (our healer) the one who takes our sickness. It is even written that by his strikes we were healed. He sent his soon so that he could leave us with the Holy Spirit our helper, protector and comforter. We are forever beyond anything blessed to be his children. From the moment we are born already daddy from heaven is fighting a battle for us which is of life. He has given us a gift of life .In so many times we drown ourselves with sorrow looking at the things that we don’t have instead of just giving him praise of just giving us the gift to live life, for they are some who would have wanted to be here today .He provides everything. He is just the whole package which a person needs. He also has given men free will to choose what he wants. how liberal is this God ?he is so liberal to the extent that he allows you to sin and he forgives without punishing. Who does that? Only our father from heaven.

Here I am thinking hard praying, oh well assuming to be praying. Normally I get to flaw when I pray but there are times when I just stumble from nowhere is it my limited vocabulary? I think! or its just thinking about something  else while doing another e,g I forgot to do my laundry or I forgot to do something in town. All my life I had always thought if my mind wonders like this when I am praying then certainly everyone else`s  wonders. At a church service however, finally our pastor got to be talking about prayer and I got to understand why, as he was preaching. Most Christians take praying as a ritual, something which they were taught by their parents or at school to do, so to many its more like a norm not a way of communication  with God. I personally think prayer should be preached about at churches so that all of us get to understand its basics because prayer is a very essential way of communicating to God. It is when you pray that God gets to here you, whether in what form communication between you and God is prayer. How then can you make it effective? This is achieved through the use of the journalist inverted pyramid (which they use to write hard news stories) hence putting the most important facts on top. Some may argue with me and say prayer should be something which is natural and when you talk to God the things should just flow but it does not work like that. That is why we get to see in Luke Chapter 11 verses 1 the disciples of  Jesus asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. It is important just like in an interview to prepare yourself to talk to God. A person should always know how to start of their prayer. Yes there are times when prayer does not need formality but you should learn that all the time when you pray there is an understanding between you and God. Pray until something happens. Someone might ask how, I just go blank when I pray? According to my own level of understanding of praying as I understood it being preached by Dr Msasandure they is need for you to address your prayer every time you pray this being done because this world has become so diverse that they are many Gods, so one needs to know which God she or he  is  praying to is it our father in heaven? so hence everytime one has to identify and acknowledge the father.

  • Always ask God to forgive your sins as you would have forgiven those who trespass against you. Hence there is need to come clean with God and make sure that you have forgiven those who wronged you so that your prayer gets to God.
  • Bring in the spirit of God and let it intercede .invite the spirit and acknowledge it. Tell the spirit of God to intercede ,for as we do not know what to pray for. Romans 8 verses 26-27
  • Honor the name of Jesus Christ, when you pray you must owner the lord , you must call him by his names identify them for example
  • Jehova Jireh provider, he sees what  we need and makes a provision
  • Shalom, the  God that brings peace to my life. Peace that surpasses all understandings.
  • Ralpha, the God that heals

The part that must  be last all the time is that of asking sorry to disappoint a lot of people cause people are ever asking, just make God your priority and tell him how wonderful and how marvelous he is, before you could ask for anything more in your life. Make him  know that you are forever thankful and grateful that way he gives you more than you could ever dream of. Acknowledge him he knows what you want already spend more time communicating and growing  closer to him than anything.Image

God`s plan for us is for good and not for evil.As a fellow Christian I have faith that God has good plans for me and for each and every one of us but all we have to do is to have faith and believe that he is Jehovah jireh (our provider). We have to stand firm and strong in his word he will never leave nor forsake his children no matter what.All we have to do is pray and not to faint.We are all unique and were created for a purpose ,that purpose might take ages to come but it will eventually come, you just have to put your trust unto the lord.Persistence and patience do work hand in hand for you to get what you want in life.God designed and fashioned us in a way that all of us have some sought of a purpose in life.Pastor M.B Shana in her book beyond limits notes that God created man,he didn’t mean for all of us to fit into just one mould.Its not a “one size fits all”you are unique and specially designed.It is a wonderful thing to know that God loves us and has plans for all of us all we have to do is to add a little bit of faith and hope and see what he has in store for us.All things work out for good to them who love the lord.

Stay blessed

 

Speaking of sleepless nights, let`s turn our attention back to the passion that simply has to be involved in your ongoing process of seeking God. As my mom did, sometimes you need to miss some sleep in order to seek him. Jesus said, “Seek the Kingdom”and “all these things” will be added to you. What does it mean to seek the kingdom of God? Is it as simple as seeking an answer to a specific prayer, or is it bigger? I believe that, first and foremost, it means seeking to be in His presence. This is not what most Christians want to hear. A lot of people in this country are born again .But most of them view God in terms of what He can do for them. People want a God who will make them rich, happy, and comfortable. Only rarely do they seek him for himself. They may not realise that they`re allowed to ask God to manifest-right where they are. For starters some people don’t even know how to pray or if I may say make an effective meaningful prayer. A person needs to be able to develop a passion with Christ and this means being able to exalt God whole heartedly. This can be achieved through communicating with God through reading the bible, being prayerful and giving God a chance to manifest into your life. All the intelligence, riches don’t just come because of ones power, it is noted in the bible that it’s neither by might nor by power but it is through his grace that we are saved. It should be well with your soul not only because God has given you a car but because you are spiritually growing. Our battle is not that of the flesh but of the spirit you also need to know how you fight the evils of this world. This can only be learnt through the reading of his word. Ephesians 6 verses 11-18 which notes that put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against principalities, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual weaknesses in high places…

THE FEAR WITHIN US

Have you ever tasted that cold, acid- like tang of fear? It`s the distinct flavour of cold chills and nausea threatening to overwhelm us. No matter how strong we are, there is always something that can cause the heart to flutter and the pulse to weaken. Fear is as paralysis of the brain. It makes our thoughts become arthritic and our memory sluggish. Like an oversized growth, fear soon becomes impossible to camouflage. Telltale signs like trembling knees or quivering lips betray fear even in the most disciplined person. Fear is the nightmare of the stage; it haunts the hearts of the timid, as well as the intimidated.
To me, there is no fear like the fear of the innocent. This is the fear of a child who walks into the dark basement to find the light switch far from reach- every mop and bucket becomes a sinister, sleazy creature whose cold breath lurks upon the neck of life`s little apprentice. I can remember moments as a child when I thought my heart had turned into an African tom-tom that was being beaten by an insane musician whose determined beating would soon break through my chest like the bursting of flood engorged dam. Maturity has chased many of the ghost and goblins out of my youthful closet of fear. Nevertheless, there are still those occasional moments when reason gives way to the fanciful imagination of the fearful little girl in women, who peeks her head out of my now fully developed frame the way a turtle sticks his head out of its shell with caution and precision.
Luckily God understands this hidden, fearful part within each of us. He understands the child in us, and speaks to our blanket- clutching, thumbs-sucking, infantile need. In spite of our growth, income, education, or fame, there`s still childhood issues we have to work through. The lord looks beyond our facades and knows our innermost needs. No matter how spiritually mature we try to appear, there is still lingering evidence of a too quick temper or weakness in the face of temptation that only the father can see. It is He alone whom we must trust to see the very worst in us, yet still think the very best of us. It is the unfailing love which we accept with the faith of a child.

THE COURSE OF OUR LIVES

Our lives, and incidents and situations that happen in many instances appear to be a haphazard, erratic display of a madman who gets pleasure from seeing his subject suffer and live in despair. But with God, this is not the case. There is an answer to the riddle. There is an answer to the question, clarity to the confusion, and calmness in the chaos. A bright knew day dawns after the dark night. There is a time and a purpose to everything under the sun, a method in the madness (T.D Jakes). Knowing the purpose for your life is one of the greatest assets to help understand and make sense of the perplexities and complications that seem to overwhelm. People who posses such knowledge possess power. When you are assured of your purpose, you are not fearful of external personal conflicts that attempt to hinder you. Why? Because you know with confidence that sooner or later every trial, every hindering situation, and every opposing person and thing in your life will eventually and inevitability bow and submit to God `s plan and purpose for your life. It`s just a matter of time and circumstance. When you know your purpose , you won’t sit and passively allow things to occur that are contrary to God`s plan for your life. Neither will you be so quick to get discouraged when situations bring conflict and disorder to your life. You will know all things are working together for your good, because you are called according to his purpose.
You don’t become frustrated or overwhelmed by those things you can`t pray away, rebuke away, cast away, fast away, confess away, or speak away. Why because you know that if it`s in your life, God has allowed it. He will bring you into that purpose for which you were created.AII things , not some, work together for good of those who love the lord. Therefore, if you are confused, ready to give up, wondering what`s going on and what all the turmoil and chaos you`re experiencing is about, ask God, “Why?” He just might say, “It`s about purpose.”Maybe he is building a foundation of character of your life. Perhaps it will enable you to obtain success and blessing that is to be poured into your life. Maybe it is a prelude to the powerful anointing that is about to come upon you. You know your help comes not from others, but from God. Do you understand what I`m saying? I know you do .If you don’t you `d better ask somebody ! But don`t just ask anybody , ask Him! Remember this-fix in your mind and take it to your heart: “Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God and there is no other. I am God and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”(Isaiah 46:9-10)

POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure, we ask ourselves  who am l to be gorgeous, talented, brilliant and fabulous actually who are you not to be, we were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us and as we let our light shine we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” From a movie called Akeelah and the Bee

There has never been a time in history when most people did not believe that possessing great wealth was the key to happiness .Yet time and again we have seen millionaires and billionaires who lead miserable lives.

We have watched their children wander through life aimlessly, doing one self destructive thing after another. For example, the likes of celebrities such as Lindesay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, they have all the worth you could ever possible want, but still you can see by the way they are portrayed in the tabloids that they lead miserable and empty lives. Some have even used their wealth to destroy others. Why? Because their wealth consisted of temporal things, not eternal. Do not get me wrong, though, material wealth is not evil in and of itself. Ten rand in the hands of a criminal or a pastor is still ten rand! The bible says it is the love of the money that is root of all evil.

Mankind must avoid being controlled and owned by material wealth. Let`s suppose that a father says to his daughter or son “That car out in the drive way is yours. Here are the keys , do with it as you please.”

Does that car belong to the son? Yes, because the father has said so. Has he possessed it yet? Not until he goes it yet? Not until he goes out there, gets in it, turns the key in the ignition, and drives away. It`s his, but he has yet to take it.

It sounds like a paradox to say, “it`s yours” and then to say  “Go, take it,” but that`s the position God puts us in. The problem people have is that they don’t know what is already theirs. And even they know, they do not believe it or act on it.

Before the son could go out and get in that car and drive away, he would have to know and believe that his father had said to him, “Son, that car is your car. I have given it to you.”Do you believe God owns what you need? Do you even believe that God actually wants to give you what you need?

The first step to possessing our inheritance is knowing and believing that God has what we need. The second step is personally taking possession of what has been decreed, bequeathed, or given to us.

Most believers seem to spend their entire lives reading the will and shouting over the contract, but never moving out and obtaining what God has given them. Everything you could possibly need is available to you in the full measure you could ever desire it. Let me assure you today, you are rich beyond measure. But you still have to take hold of what God has promised you and what God has already given you. Tremendous life changing, abundant blessings are waiting for us if we will only pursue them and possess them in faith.
