Show me what you have

pieces

It’s so refreshing! Finally to put this post together, a bit of pieces I found scattered all around, after finding grace to mend the pieces I am finally coming out with this post.

I pray you are blessed by it because that is the whole point of posting this.

So not quite long I had this dream, of which I have been struggling to make meaning of.

I actually wrote what I received from this dream ‘cause I didn’t wanna forget, it was that important for I asked God  a whole lot of questions and I was really expectant of the answer, I knew He was gonna speak to me, but when he did, I didn’t understand, lol.

So all I remembered from that dream was he telling me “show me what you have for me and I will show you what I have for you”

Hmm, I mean this isn’t exactly the answer I was looking for but I had to start looking into this mystery and by His leading i found my way to this amazing blog zortura  in a post titled Christian memes for the first time and I found this quote.” Show God your faith and He’ll show you his Faithfulness” can you tell me that this is mere coincidence?

I absolutely do not think so.

I have lots of posts on Faith that I think you should check them out so you can really understand this post well. Click here and there to refresh your memory on faith.

Faith is simply acting on God’s word.

So the purpose of this post is really to tell somebody that, if there is something on your heart you really wanna do but you are wondering if that is the will of God. well I’m here to tell you that the will of found is found in His word (the Bible) and so whatever it is, if it is a promise of God in His word and you desire it, you have the ability to claim it by acting on the word (Faith) and God will make your act, work (He will make your faith full to yield expected result) He will show you His faithfulness.

So in summing up I conclude with this scripture

19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 (NIV)

There you have it, my dream interpreted for both you and my good.

what-can-you-do

My dream “show Me what you have for Me and I will show you what I have for you” interpretation” Act on my Word and I will show you what I can do for you” or “show God your Faith and He’ll show you His Faithfulness”

Thank you Spirit Divine for this!

Let me know if this messages blesses your life as it’s supposed to.

God bless you bunch.

Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for this day, this message and the gift of life. I pray that you will forgive my errors as I forgive those who wrong me. Father please grant me the grace to act on your word no matter what the circumstance around me demands of me. Lead me to the place where your faithfulness will always be seen with all glory given to you. Thank you Father for answering my prayer in Jesus name, Amen.

 

My most abused prayer line.

seeing

I remember that growing up whenever i am called upon to pray after the word of God has been preached or studied one of my most abused prayer line was, “Father help me not to be just a listener of your word but also a doer of it”.

Well, little did i know that i was actually asking for faith. Yes i had been praying for faith even without knowing and guess what, God  gave me something my natural man was unaware of but my spirit man was asking. I guess i was praying in the spirit for a long time and yes it has been rewarding.

I am saying all these because faith is simply acting on God’s word or doing what the word says no matter what the circumstance around you demands of you.

22 Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! 23 Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, 24 walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. 25 But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action. James 1:22-25 (MSG)

A Christian without faith is like a Christian without an identity. One just using the name “Christian” as a cover to be in church but when  out of church, forgets all about the teachings in church then begins to show the face behind the cover because that is what that person knows and is used to.

But then how can one look into a mirror and after walking away forgets what he looks like instantly? You forget because what you see is nothing short of arrogance which is not worth remembering.

This happens when you  look into the wrong  mirror. Have you ever had an experience with that one mirror that always makes your head bigger than it really is and you go like, this is not me, this mirror hates me, lol. yeah i relate too.

The self-mirror is deceptive, it makes you look superior to others refusing to submit to any authority therefore causing you to grow arrogant. But there is this mirror,  the only one that reflects glory, anytime one looks into it he experiences something wonderful, all weakness are replaced with the strength of God by grace.Looking into it even for a second imprints on your heart moments of lasting glory.How can one forget a wonderful experience, even if it is for a second, it sure remains in the heart forever.

The more you look into the Christ-mirror the more you reflects what is seen in the mirror, and the more you receive strength to do the will of God.

I end by saying do not be a hypocritical christian, it is too costly and short-lived but be no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts.

God bless you.

Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus thank you for this day and the life you have given to me free of charge. Please forgive my errors Father, as i forgive others.Thank you for this message, my first request is that you will help me start fresh with this message, help me be the doer of what it says, help me stay focused on you no matter what so as to get the strength to always do your will. Thank you Lord for answering my prayer in Jesus’ name, Amen.

It is time for a Faith check

real

Have you undergone a health check lately?

Well, as your health is imperative to your body functioning well, so it is with faith in your Christian walk. Do you still remember that you are a spirit being living in a body?

Just in case you have forgotten, this is a reminder of what faith is.

Generally faith is simply having trust or a strong belief in someone or something.

Every one possesses some kind of faith, not only Christians, but even atheists have enough faith in their intellect to say that there is no God.

Faith per the biblical definition in Hebrews 11:1 is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Wow!

This is so wonderful, i pray that the Holy Spirit will grant you reading this post a deeper understanding as you read along.

First of all faith is an essential element for every Christian. You cannot be a Christian without this tool because you must practically walk it (2 Corinthians 5:7), speak it (2 Corinthians 4:13), Act it (James 1:22) live it (2 Corinthians 5:7) and you will see and have life (John 20:31).

Faith is not blind as some people make it seem, it does not give us false hope, and it is not about hoping so but knowing so. Faith is not an illusion but based on something tangible.

Faith can be held (Ephesians 6:16), it can be picked up like how you pick up money from your pocket to purchase goods.

As one cannot claim to be a farmer without having a farm, you cannot be a Christian without faith. Faith, like a farm is the place we plant our seed, harvest, and sell our produce but where the farm is situated, is paramount to how your hard work will yield.

Faith is vague unless it is accompanied with action just like a piece of land cannot be termed a farm until it has crops or animals on it to proof what it says it is.

Finally, I see faith as the confirmation of things we are expecting like the sms notification you get when someone sends money into your mobile money or bank account. Even though you have not physically seen the cash the notification settles your hope, it makes you rest assured that you have money even though you have not seen it.

Stay connected  as we delve deeper in our subsequent posts this week.

God bless you all.

Prayer

Father in the Name of Jesus, thank you for this day, please forgive me of any sin committed against you that my prayer will get to you. Today I have learnt about faith and I ask that you will check me up and take away my unbelief that I will see your marvelous works in and around me. I open myself up to receiving more from you. Thank you Father for making your ears attent unto my prayer in Jesus’ Name Amen.
