BEAUTY ON INSPIRATION

This is my first blog post and it’s about testimony, I pray this piece bless you as you read.

What really comes in our mind whenever we hear the word TESTIMONY? Testimony comes in different forms, when you go to church and it’s time for testimony, you see a lot of ways people tell out their testimony (either by talking, singing, dancing and a lot). When I was a kid, I taught sharing of testimonies ain’t necessarily important, because sharing it alone will even make people jealous of you. But growing up, I have seen people write down their life time testimonies as an inspiration to others, and it’s indeed changing the life’s of others. So today on my first blog post i want to talk about the power of testimony and how  it can improve the life of others.

The scripture (Revelation 12:11) from the above picture teaches us that…

Your Enemies Will Fall Before You.

Today’s fragrance by papberry

Topic: Your enemies will fall before you.

Scripture: Psalm 23:5

“You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows”.

When God decides to bless His people, the enemy has no authority to stand in the way but if they stubbornly do God uses them to play a major role in His children’s uplifting.

Let’s take a look at Esther and her older cousin Mordecai who raised her in the absence of her parents…God was going to bless Esther and through her set the Jews under the rule of King Ahasuerus free.
But one arrogant and evil man called Haman started to plot against them for personal gains.

Little did he know that before he thinks God had already thought.

God placed Esther and Mordecai in a special place in the heart of the King that even after all Haman did to bring them down, he rather ended up being the one the king used to honor Mordecai.
He was busily preparing good things for his enemies without knowing, and when he found out later He mourned greatly for he was humiliated.

May the Lord prepare a table for you before your enemies and may they be the cooks without knowing! May this be your portion in Jesus name!

So Haman told this to his wife and his wise friends and this is what they told him,
“If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, is of the Jewish people, you will not overcome him but will surely fall before him.”

Finally the gallows Herman prepared for Mordecai was the same one he was hanged on! (Esther chapter 6)

This morning I want to tell someone that no matter what the enemy plots concerning you, you shall not be overcomed because you are God’s elect, your head is anointed with oil and His blessings overflows in every aspect of your life!

Man you are covered!

Blessings…

Prayer 
Dear lord, thank you for today. Please forgive my sins even as I forgive others. Thank you for this assuring word today, it gives me hope that no matter what your plans concerning my life shall prevail and not the enemy’s. Lord continue to use me to cause a shift wherever I find myself in Jesus name have I prayed with thanksgiving, amen.

Strength in Weakness

A powerful message!! Do read and be blessed.

Salt My Words

Recently, I read a story by Harvey Mackay about a 10-year-old boy named Mark.  Mark had lost his left arm in an automobile accident, but still wanted to study Judo.  After 3 months had passed, he questioned his Japanese Judo Master about only learning one move.  His master said that was the only move he’d ever need to know.  Well, he didn’t understand it, but didn’t question it further. 

A few months later, still faithfully practicing his one move daily, Mark entered his first tournament.  He quickly won the first two matches.  He had to work a little, focus a little more, but won the third match.  Now in the finals, Mark’s opponent was bigger, stronger, more experienced, but eventually also made the same mistake of stepping into the sequence that would allow Mark to use his one move to pin him…

Today’s fragrance : Seeking God

Today’s fragrance by papberry 

Topic: seeking God

Scripture: Psalms 42:1

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God”.

I’ve come across people who think seeking God is like going to school and graduating.
Well, I must say that even if your whole lifetime is dedicated to seeking Him, you will never finish knowing Him because He is infinite and it’s like He comes in layers, which means you might end up using eternity to unwrap just a single layer!

So those of you who are on “leave” because you think the totally of God is limited in words scripted in books, you are really missing out because there is actually much more for you to experience and discover than you already have!
King David, a man God himself described as after His own heart was never satisfied with the depth he had reached in the Lord but rather he eagerly strived to receive more of Him. Maybe because he knew going deeper will get him deeper revelation and more so getting the kind of intimacy he desired, sensing His presence in every step took. 

Even after finding God he didn’t stop there, and we all can attest according to scripture, the marvelous things God did, for, with and through him!

When Genuine love exists among people it draws them one to the another and no matter how much time you spend together, you never get tired and want more and more!

Anyone who genuinely seeks the love of God and gets to experience it always pants for more!

So what is the reason for you seeking God? Do you want a relationship with him or you just want to “use” him to get what you want?
Have you stopped seeking Him because you’ve got what what you sought Him for?

There is more to God than your present “needs” don’t be blinded by them and miss out on all His awesomeness!

Blessings…

Prayer

Thank you Lord for gifting me with life today. Please forgive my sins as I forgive others. Lord I want to know you more therefore I open myself up to you, I decrease Lord, that you may increase in me. Teach me your ways as you draw me closer to you in Jesus name have I prayed with thanksgiving, amen.

Today’s fragrance: More than a Conqueror

Today’s fragrance by papberry

Topic : More than a conqueror

Scripture : Romans 8:37

37. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39. neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)

Indeed life in Christ is a victorious one, not a failure. Many times as believers, we go through lots of ups and downs and we feel as if everything and everyone is against us. Today you are being reminded that there is absolutely nothing that can overcome you. Not that ailment, not that exam, not that empty pocket, and definitely not that demon!!

This is because you have been crucified with Christ and you no longer live, but Christ lives in you. The life you live in the body, you live by faith in the Son of God, who loved you and gave himself for you. Gal 2:20 (NIV) (emphasis mine).

That person who could fail at something died a long time ago and for that matter, you are now a ghost, you and i know that ghosts do not belong to this world and they certainly cannot take decisions on behalf of the living. This new being you are now is unable to fail, Failure has been drained out of your DNA.

Bible says in John 16;33 that “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

We are bound to encounter trouble in this world whether we like them or not but the good news is, we can only find peace in our new life, which is the life in Christ. We will only know peace in this world if we are in Christ. After all He has already done the job! He overcame the world a long time ago and so if trouble is coming your way, why worry when it’s not even a battle for you but Him, of which He has already won. So tell me why you are still fighting an already won Battle?

From today, I admonish you to start living in the knowledge of this word, whenever you are faced with any difficult situation, know that ghosts cannot think, that is who you are and so allow the One alive in you to take charge, after all He alone has the keys to unlock difficult and mysterious puzzles.

Yes i am talking about JESUS!

Relax sweetheart, if there is any word in the dictionary that can describe you, it sure wouldn’t be failure ‘cause you are more than a conqueror!

Blessings…

Prayer

1. Thank God for your life.

2. Ask for forgiveness of sin.

3. Pray for more grace to live by the word of God, as God to lead you always.

4. Thank Him for listening to you in Jesus name, amen.
