Source of power

Many people clamour for power, but are completely ignorant of how to get it. And sadly, instead of learning how to do it, they go about it the wrong way; and the price we pay is exorbitant.

Power is available to all of us. But to get it, we must know how to get it.

What is the source of power?

The source of power is the word of God. I mean the good source of power or the source of real power. There is real power and fake power or negative power. Here, we are talking of positive power.

The word of God has tremendous power. It gives tremendous power. If you want to be powerful, go to the word of God. It will give you power.

It can give riches in abundance. It can give you all the riches you can ever aspire to have. If you desire to rise in position, the word of God can enable you to rise to any height you desire. This is a fact. The word of God can make you successful in business. The word of God has the secret to a happy marriage. The Word of God is the Master Key to every blessing in the universe. Whatever you want, go to the Word of God and it will tell you how to get it; and when you do what you are told, you will get it.

The word of God can change your life. It is a life changing instrument. It can lift you from oblivion to prominence. It can take you from the bottom to the top. It can transform a poor person into a super rich person. It can take you from the gutter to an ivory tower. It can lift you from mud to the throne.

We humans have only one wall blocking us from the attainment of what we want from this world. It is our ignorance of the power of the word of God, and failure to use it as stipulated.

If the world is beset by problems, it is because we are not giving the Word of God the opportunity to give us an excellent world. We are not using the word of God to solve the problems of poverty, war, violence, exploitation of man by man, injustice, etc, whereas the Word of God is the instrument that God has put at our disposal to use to find solutions to these problems.

The word of God is found in the Bible, which is the greatest book that has ever, and will ever be written. More bibles have been printed, sold, circulated, read and studied than any other book in the world.

It is an amazing book. God is it’s real author. But since man is the hand of God on earth, he dictated it to the various writers through divine inspiration.

The Bible expresses the mind of God. It gives God’s plan for humanity and the universe.

All that is in the Bible is true. All the information given is accurate. It tells us about God, who God is, what God likes and does not like, what God wants us to do and should not do, and how we must relate to him, live with him, and relate with one another.

The truth about life is if we followed the instructions given to us in the Bible, the world would be an excellent place for everyone to enjoy.

The way to get anything we want from life is to do what the bible or word of God says we should do to get it. If you want anything in this world, go to the Bible and find out what God says you should do to get it. If you do it as instructed, God will give it to you. Obedience to God is the only way to get God to do what you want. It is a pre-requisite for God to answer your prayer.

It is rather unfortunate that we do not do what God has instructed us in his word to do. For example, he has asked us to love one another, but do we ? If we obeyed this command, the world would be perfect. Imagine that everybody loved the other, there would be no hatred, no quarreling, no fighting, no wars, no poor and no rich.

God has instructed us to love him with all our heart. Do we? He has asked us to put our whole trust in him. Do we? We don’t and the result is there to see – a torn world; a world of poverty, disease, suffering, wars and loss of human life and property.

Jesus Christ had a vision of an excellent world for all, and set up his church to pursue it.

The Church is on that vision. It is a long and difficult task. It will not be realized in our life time. But there is something we can do in our lifetime. We can each transform our life. We can become the person God created us to become.

For this to happen, we must play our role. In the job of shaping our destiny, we are fellow workers with God. God could do it alone, but he has decreed that it will be a joint endeavour. We are fellow workers with him in this. He has already accomplished his own part of the task which is making the tools we need available to us through his word. All that is required of us is to dig into that tool bag (the Bible) get the tools we need and use them to get what we want.

Are you ready. If you say yes and mean it, your life can never be the same again. You will attain the great heights that it is God’s plan for you.

If you look at the history of the world, you will find that the greatest men and women who have ever lived got their greatness through their effort to obey the word of God. They did not only struggle hard to obey the word of God but inspired, encouraged and helped others to do same. For their effort, God rewarded them abundantly.

Do your own best in that direction; and seeing your effort, God will surely, reward you.

Why I like Monday

I want to tell you why
I like Monday;
M reminds me of mercy;
Which challenges me
To show mercy to others;
If I don’t show mercy,
I will not receive mercy;
The mercy I show to others,
Comes back to bless me;
O reminds me of obedience;
And invites me to obey
The word of God;
Obedience to the word of God
Is the best prayer;
N reminds me
Of a name;
Jesus, the miracle name
Unlike other names;
It is called billions of times
Every day;
It heals;
It protects;
It saves;
It frees;
It works miracles;
D reminds me of dedication;
I am challenged to be dedicated to whatever
I am called to do;
A reminds me of answer;
The Lord calls me daily;
I am expected to answer.
Like Mary;
Like Joseph;
Y reminds me of yes, my answer,
A vehement yes.
That is the Monday I like.

Which is the best prayer?

Do you know which is the best way to pray?

If I asked you, “which is the best prayer?” ,

I wonder what you would say. I have an answer for you; an answer that not many will think about.

The best prayer is not shouting at the top of your voice or talking to God for long.

The best prayer is obedience to God. Obey God’s command and you please God as never before.

God will do for you more than you could ever imagine.

Prayer is good. But it is not just talking to God. It is also listening to God, not just for listening sake, but to hear what He wants you to do and do it.

The Warning Signs

I approached the corner of a gorgeous, stately community. A large sign didn’t show which direction to proceed, and its definition confused me. Marveled by the message, I wondered if God was trying to tell me something. Dare I make a wrong turn because some things seem so inviting yet sin lies just around the corner?

God makes it abundantly clear we need to listen to His messages, but sometimes our spirit disagrees with the subconscious mind. Second thoughts might lend themselves to be valid than reality. God didn’t really place the sign but whoever did, might be sent by Him. Sitting with my foot on the brake and profusely sweating, how do I know for sure if it’s His warning sign?

John 8:47

“Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

In an instant, my car rumbled to a halt. Was it trying to tell me something? My mind went in reverse as God made His presence known. I cried out for Him to save me before I traveled further down the wrong road. I’m confident He saved me from a horrible error.

Can you imagine the magnitude of our mistakes if we did not have a close relationship with the Lord? We live in a world filled with signs, some good and some bad. The sole way to distinguish the best ones is to have a heart committed to understanding His words. This requires a heart fully surrendering to Him and plenty of prayers. In our moment of silence, God will relay His guiding words.

I started the engine again and regained my composure. The car behind me honked his horn, so I made a U-turn. I smiled at the driver and politely acknowledged I was in the wrong with a hand signal. God also knew where I might be if I not heeded the warning sign.

It’s a safe bet to acknowledge God tries to save all His children who hang on the brink of self-destruction. His voice speaks to us through the Bible, a friend, and yes, even a sign now and then. But don’t be tempted to look for a quick answer to the warning signs. God may not be finished revealing a situation to you. It is all in His perfect timing.

It is important to understand the Bible has many stories of people doing exactly what God wanted them to do, yet they still suffered hard times, persecution and even death. After all, His idea of success will not be your own, and sometimes there will be plenty of pain to endure along the road. Even in the darkest highways of life, we still need to stick to His plans. This is obedience to His word!

Not sure of your directional heading? Then turn to God who needs to be your driver. Follow the biblical legend, Jesus Christ, for the only way to get to heaven is with an invitation from Him. I pray every day the heavens gleaming light will radiate in your heart. The passion from heaven will transform you making life’s little temptations so much easier for you to handle. Learn to read the warning signs. Christ is here to help you if you let Him….. just don’t obey the warning signs of your subconscious mind.

The will of God

Do you know the will
Of God?
Do you do the will
Of God?
Do you share the will
Of God?
Do you defend the will
Of God?
Do you oppose the will
Of God?
Do you work against
The will of God?
The will of God
is supreme;
The will of God is
The will of God;
It is imperative for us
To respect the will of God;
To obey the will of God.

Quote (proof of faith)

“It is rather unfortunate that we go to Church, give alms, contribute to the financing of Church projects, and take posts in Church, but are still so weak in our faith. We show real proof of faith not through the profession of faith alone, but through obedience of God’s commands.” (Romilia Quotes)
