The Flames of Spiritual Gift

small man on a Bible‘I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you. This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid hands on you. For God has not given us the spirit of fear, timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.’ 2 Timothy 1: 5-7. 

I read this passage this morning and was overcome with an understanding that could only have come from the Spirit of God. It was a fresh insight that  had never hit me before despite my familiarity with this passage – even to the point of singing the lyrics of “God has not given us a spirit of fear…” since I was 5 years old. 

“Sit Down!”

Yesterday evening, I had a really long conversation with a friend and we were talking about how faith + ANXIETY = Sin. Pain

Faith plus anxiety is when you  PRAY unto God, CAST your cares upon him, and then PICK up your cares again. Sound familiar? 
What we do to God, through his son Jesus when we pray with anxiety is simply telling him He is not able; that He, the I AM THAT I AM, is big, but is not big enough for that situation. Father forgive us in Jesus name.

The Wonders of MERCY!

Sunday Service today at Jubilee Christian Centre was an awesome experience…now that the annointing is still fresh and hot upon me, I better download the transcript of my sermon note right now. I believe God that you would be blessed just as I am, as you follow Pastor Adebayo Patrick in this exploration of THE WONDERS OF MERCY.

The message:

The journey to greatness can be very difficult outside the mercy of God. Romans 9:13-16
The Bible describes the mercy of God in 5 ways: Continue reading

What do they say?

I was having my devotions this morning and got drawn to Deuteronomy 9:1-3. It says:

“Listen, O Israel! Today you are about to cross the Jordan River to take over the land belonging to nationsmuch greater and more powerful than you. They live in cities with walls that reach to the sky! 2 The people are strong and tall—descendants of the famous Anakite giants. You’ve heard the saying, ‘Who can stand up to the Anakites?’ 3 But recognize today that the Lord your God is the one who will cross over ahead of you like a devouring fire to destroy them. He will subdue them so that you will quickly conquer them and drive them out, just as the Lord has promised.”

When I read that passage this morning, I reflected on life and its many SAYINGS. A lot of people have heard different kinds of sayings, “you can never do well in life”, the doctor says, “you have only 3 months to live the cancer is fast spreading”, the teacher says, “you are so dumb, you’ll never get to college”, some parents says, “you are so ugly, who is gonna marry you or bear your kids”…

I don’t care what you have been told that is shaping your life and who you are. If you have Jesus, then the God of impossibilities is on your side and he will devour your enemies, abstract and live alike.

Perhaps, you’ve really heard the saying, “who can stand up to the Anakites?”, RECOGNISE that the Lord God is the one in charge of fighting your battles and he is more than able. I pray for myself and you that we receive our victory today in the name of of JESUS.amen.
