He is the Lord
Forever His truth shall reign

Rejoice in His holy name
He is exalted, the King is exalted on high

The Lord is a refuge
for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of
His name is a strong
The righteous run into it
and are safe.
Those who know your name
trust in you,
for you O Lord,
do not abandon
those who trust in you.
You will keep in perfect peace, those who trust in you
and whose mind is fixed on you.

Hello friends, how has year 2014 been for each one of you? I trust we have experienced God’s manifest presence in our situations and circumstances. If you feel you have not, don’t give up yet, as God is set to do more, greater than he has done.
It is September, and we are a week far into it already.
What are your goals for this month?
Do you have any expectations? (If no, I encourage you to pick a pen and a piece of paper to write out the things you expect God to do for you.) For the Bible says in Habakkuk 2:2: “Then the Lord answered me and said “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it”
Are you expectant of what the Lord is set to do?
Is there anything the Lord has told you, but is yet to show forth?
Habakkuk 2:3: “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
I encourage us all today, to just live by faith and remember that “there is indeed a future and your hope will never be cut off” (Prov 23:18)
God is too faithful to fail.
God bless you.

Knowledge, they say is power. That means the extent at which you perform is directly proportional to how much you know. The knowledge of your status is very vital to enjoy victory in your Christian walk. The Bible in the book of Isaiah 5:13 says “Therefore my people are gone into captivity for lack of knowledge…” and even goes further in Hosea 4:6 and says “My people are being destroyed for lack of knowledge;…”
It is important, that as God’s children, we are aware of who we are in Christ Jesus, as this helps us maintain our stand even as we journey through this world daily.
So now the question is: What do you know? How much do you know?
I hope this blesses you.

“The Lord has given me a strong warning
not to think like everyone else does.
He said, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy like they do,
and don’t live in dread of what frightens them.
Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life.
He is the one you should fear.
He is the one who should make you tremble”
“… Don’t fear what they fear, Don’t take on their worries” Isaiah 8:12
Trust God, and stand firm.

It’s a new morning and a new week too and we’ve been assured of God’s steadfast love and mercies, they are never ending and new every morning. I pray we continually receive them as we go into this week.
Here is just a reminder for us all.
In 1 Thessalonians 2:13. Paul said: “Therefore we never stop thanking God that when you received his message from us, you didn’t think of our words as mere human ideas. you accepted what we said as the very word of God – which, of course, it is. And this word continues to work in you who believe.“
Isaiah 7:9 says “… Unless your faith is firm, I cannot make you stand firm”
God is still working. The Bible says that God’s Word works in those who believe it. So no matter what you see today, believe that God is working on your breakthrough. There may be some things we’ve been talking to God about for a very long time and it seems like the answers are not forthcoming or we may have aligned perfectly with God’s word and will but yet nothing seems true, please do remember, it is only a test, this too shall pass.
God Bless You!

Sometimes we face trials in our daily activities, we get depressed by the difficulties we encounter in our jobs, relationships, finance and almost everything. Even sometimes, we feel like God’s no longer on our side and some things don’t work out fine the way we want them to. In fact sometimes, we physically find no reason to keep calm, because the noise and turbulence in the news has swallowed the tranquility and serenity we are supposed to enjoy as God’s children.
But today I have a word from Jesus. Jesus, in John 16:33, said “… Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
Jesus told us this so that his Peace will be with us. He said in John 14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. believe in God; believe also in me.” (ESV).
So be rest assured, no matter what it is, don’t be troubled. Don’t let your circumstances steal your joy. Just like Jesus, We too shall overcome!
“… In the world, you’ll have trouble. But cheer up! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 GWT
“… In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” – John 16:33 AMP
