HEARING GOD'S VOICE

Image
And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again. Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him. And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child. Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth. (1 Samuel 3:6-10) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27)
Do you know the voice of God? Does God speak to you?  When was the last time the Lord spoke to you? When was the last time He gave you dire…

GOD'S TEAM

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. (1 Corinthians 1:26-29).

Having been in the corporate world for sometime now, it's very evident that one of the most important elements of corporate success is the place of hiring the best. The rule is: show us what you can offer or what new thing you bring on board and we will hire you. This is the realities of the corporate world. 

On the flip side of the corporate world however, there's a massive recruitment that goes on in everyday life which overlooks all the things the corporate world looks out for. …

THE TWO PHASES OF A VISION

Image
And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly (Mark 8:22-25)



I was engaged in a conversation with a friend about having a life vision. I asked her: “ what do you want to do with your life?“. She replied: “ I don't know but I know I want to do something with my life“. I rebuked her, telling her that is too vague. 

Suddenly, I got this strong conviction that my rebuke was wrong. I apologized and the conversation continued. Out of that conversation, two truths emerged about The Phases of a vision: (1) Lack of Clarity (2) State of Clarity

1. Lack of Clarity
This is the first phase of a vision where you k…

A WRITING MINISTRY

Image
Psalms 68:11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.The word has to go forth, the word has to spread. I want to personally call on any Christian who can write and have a passion to write to take it seriously and work at it. If you got passion to write, digest these.

1. Writing is a Ministry

In biblical days, there were scribes whose main duty was to pen down the words of God and the words of the prophet. I personally view writing as an extension of the ministry of the teacher, a ministry that has greatly been sidelined. Don't you love it when you hear a great bible teacher? The word is sweet when rightly divided. Word upon word, precerpt upon precerpt. There is a great need in our days for teachers. Teachers of the word, and I personally believe writing can bridge that gap.

2. You should have a message

Every messenger carries a message. The Christian message of salvation has many facets and every individual based on their experienc…

WHAT ARE YOU PASSING ON?

Image Copyright @ dreamstime.com Genesis 45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life . Life is not only about you. There are destinies tied up to your life(beyond blood relatives). Mess up, and you have messed up the destinies of all the lives connected to you.

Read the scripture again and note “for God did send me before(ahead) of you to preserve life“. In other words, whatever evil was done Joseph was part of God‘s agenda to save lives.The nations Israel & Egypt would have been destroyed by famine if Joseph had jumped into bed with Potiphar(taken a shortcut route to his destiny).

Life is that simple: every action has ramifications for other people. By one man‘s sin, the whole human race was declared guilty of sin. And by another man‘s obedience many were made rigtheous.( see Romans 5:19).

For the sake of all the lives intertwined with your destiny, please look beyond yourself and don…
