Life Has No Reverse

 

Life Has No Reverse cover

I wish I could rewrite my history. As a lonely child, I often cried in my room. I felt the entire world squarely on my shoulders. Maybe it was a maturity thing, and I hoped I’d outgrow it, but it didn’t happen. In fact, it worsened with the complexity of growing up. I reflect today and wonder how in the world I made it through the storms of previous generations. The residue left little for me to conquer, not to mention my compounding disabilities.

Saved by God’s grace, I rose to the challenge. He gives us choices in life. I was determined to be better than the inherited memories I’d just as soon forget, so I remained in prayer….

Life Has No Reverse prayer

Life has no reverse. There isn’t a miracle that can turn back the hands of time, even in God’s hands. But, if we pray consistently for answers, sometimes God will give us a hint into His plans. I believe there comes a time when the Lord says enough is enough and He lets us preview His intentions. Protecting what’s left of humanity, blessings will flow, and we will be born again in a summery spring shower.

Windows of light will ignite the spirit. Even though our future may appear grim to us now, God has a purpose for everything, but it’s in His perfect timing. We may not find out until much later precisely what God’s purpose is but patience must become a virtue. Eventually, God will let you in on His idea. I could not believe it when it happened to me.

In 1985, I was headed in a completely different direction when God gave me a sneak preview into my future. I inadvertently held a young blonde’s hand, and when I did, I somehow knew God was blessing something about to happen in my future. Thirty-two years later she became my wife! Living, life, and love – God abounds no matter where your persona lies. God is always with us. I quietly sit and reflect on the failures that I endured, but I know now it was worth it all.

Do not fear giving God your messes in life! He is the Great Comforter that calms the raging waters. He soothes broken hearts, relieves the pain of loss, and heals the sick. We should understand nothing in His plan will ultimately harm us. Give your life to him! Live righteously, love your neighbor as yourself. Don’t forget to thank God too for the new you. You’ll love it!

Inoculate Hate

 

Inoculate Hate cover

At this moment, let’s imagine what the world would be like if we could inoculate hate and evil from the earth. Think of the lives we could save! A world where everyone would live together; no fathom, no harm, only living as one. We would be a racism of human beings, protecting and loving each other, no matter the country or color of skin.

Let us pray so….

Envision going to God’s temple on Sunday, and the Ten Commandments proudly stood in the vestibule by the gold shovel at the door. There’d be no need to claim a religious doctrine for only Jesus would minister to thousands of parishioners who’d attend church every Sunday morning.

Let us pray so….

Could it ever be where harmony would spread instead of wildfires, and we looked upon a friend as a brother in Christ? We’d unite to build a better way of life. The homeless would merely be those whose homes are under construction. Our infants would never fear for their last meal – even in Africa and other destitute areas of the world where hope is nonexistent. We could organize a Million Man March for natural disaster victims.

Let us pray so….

Wars for lies untold would be a thing of the past. Languages would be the only barrier the world has ever known. Unity in faith, as God perceived, would be heavenly. One God, one religion, one human race gathered together as one heart, one soul and mind trying to help each other. We could wipe our brows knowing we tried our best.

Let us pray so….

City streets would be ready for tomorrow, and the manicured lawns would welcome visitors. Locks on doors will be for Satan’s evil spirits who will all but give up his ghostly image.

Let us pray so….

What a wonderful world we will share when God inoculates hate in the world! Christians, let the happy word spread – this WILL be our heaven one day with Jesus!

Let us pray so….

REHOBOTH

Genesis 26:17-22 gives us a narrative of how the name Rehoboth came to be. It’s a well in Gerar dug by Isaac about 20 miles south of Beersheba. Isaac gave it the name Rehoboth, which means open space.

The servants of Isaac had dug two wells prior to Rehoboth and the herdsmen of Gerar quarrelled with Isaac’s herdsmen over the wells claiming that the water belongs to them.

As a result of the arguments and disputes, Isaac had to let it go in order for peace to reign. But interestingly Isaac servants kept on trying, they refused to give up, they persisted by digging another well.

Open Space

So when they dug the third well and there was no disputes as result Isaac named it Rehoboth saying Now the Lord has given us space and we will flourish in the land.

I’m sure most of us are familiar with or must have heard this story in one way or another but if not you’re welcome.

Personally, this story speaks volume. It’s a reminder to us that as humans and especially as Christians to bear in mind that in life the devil will fight you, cause disagreements, and he will even try to take what’s rightfully yours because his purpose is to steal, kill and destroy.

Being a Christian doesn’t make it any easier or gives you a free pass to Heaven.

Consider what Jesus said;

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world John 16:33.

The devil is very cafty and he can come in any form to stop us from achieving our purpose in life.

This can be in form of disappointment, lack, delay and unsuccessful attempts to get or achieve a particular goal which God has given you and it seems the more and harder you try the more frustrating it becomes.

The more you build that project, that relationship, the more you applied for that job, that visa, that admission the more they turn you down. The more you fight that disease, that sickness the stronger it becomes.

Just like Isaac and his servants, do not give up on your goal, neither you quibble but you must learn to move on and keep digging. You must be resilient and able to endure tough times without cracking.

When things are tough only your God given visions will keep you going.

It is important to state that digging here doesn’t necessarily mean you should start drilling the ground like the servants of Isaac did except you are in that line of work.

But what I mean is to keep focus on your goal, keep believing in God, don’t give up, be prayerful with thanksgiving to God because praise is a weapon.

Keep digging

Irrespective of your situation,timeline or location, as you keep praying and digging, God will hush all your enemies and make a space for you to flourish in Jesus name.

Another thing we must not forget in this story is that in verse 2 and 3 of Genesis 26 God appeared to Isaac and told him not to go to Egypt but to do as He tells him. God told him to dwell in Gerar for He will be with him and bless him.

This simply shows that total obedience to God is sacrosanct in getting your Rehoboth.

The fact that God has promised to be with you and to bless you doesn’t mean you won’t encounter oppositions or challenges.

Anything that has to do with God and His children is a battle. You know why? because the devil is also interested in it.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. Job 1:6

Remember when people are doing their worst to you, God is doing great work within you.


Be glad for the grace to overcome has been given to you.


So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

Many thanks for coming around, until next time….

Keep digging!
