Looking Out For Each Other

I share the sentiments, ‘be our brother’s keeper’. This statement is crucial for our lives today.

We see today, we don’t see tomorrow and the person who we may sidestepped today, may be just the person who may help us along in dire need. Let us be mindful and be our ‘brother’s keeper’.
No one is better than the other, it is just by the grace of God, we go through our daily lives.

Irrespective of status in life, our position is nothing without God.
Try to look out for somebody today!

Let us support one another the best way possible, we never know when it’s our turn asking for help.

Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:4 NIV

Have a God bless day

Be Kind even in Adversity

People make mistakes and bad decisions from time to time; some could be avoided. There are always consequences for every action, but it doesn’t mean we dig a hole and bury the person at fault.

At the PM’s announcement today 24th May 2019, it was really sad to hear the Prime Minister of Britain giving her resignation date. At the ending of speech her voice cracked, I couldn’t help myself but to feel empathy for the lady. It was like a very defeating blow for her and her supporters I believe.

People, especially leaders, need to have the right people around them to give support, Godly advice and suggestions. Not to gang up on them when there are disagreements.

People who mean you well, will be there for you through thick and thin. They may not agree with you on certain matters but will bring valid solutions, suggestions and advice.

On the other hand, people – whatever the status should be able to listen and act carefully, value suggestions given. Everybody needs somebody, there are lessons learnt here …

The people around you know more about you than anyone else. You expect them to help you when you’re falling, sometimes that’s not the case. People should not laugh or rejoice over other people’s down fall!

Somebody may try to run for a role to replace you. We have seen it all before, as the saying goes-

‘the Knife that stick goat stick sheep’

‘He who laughs last laugh best’!

Be careful not to rejoice over people’s hurt, for example, loss of power, but rather help them to rise again. Let us be kind and sympathetic – we never know what tomorrow may bring!

Give it to Jesus

When you don’t know what next to do  – then you know it is time to hand it over to Jesus.
When you’re not sure what to say -hand to Jesus.
When you’re confused – give to Jesus.
When you are afraid – just give it to Jesus.
When you’re feeling tired and weary – give it to Jesus.
When you don’t know which way to go and feel you’re at your cross road – give it to Jesus.
When you think your proposed relationship isn’t working out- tell it to Jesus.
Just when you feel things are looking up for you and then comes disappointment- hand it to Jesus.
Having set your attention on a particular goal and gotten some major setbacks? Give them all to Jesus.
There may be so many things happening in our lives we have no control over, sometimes trying hard to fix them …
It’s time to let go – give them all to JESUS, He will turn your/my sorrow into joy!!
 
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7 KJV

Follow after Truth

We are now coming to the close of the third month in the year already!!

Consider this thought – So often, the physical side of us takes over God’s designed purpose for our lives.

If you and I are not careful we lose out on our blessings … God’s purpose for us!

Too many times we are caught up in our zeal about what we want to do and so we listen to what we want to hear and not what is right and just.

Our lives should be a picture of being real and true people – we owe it to ourselves and others. Without these attributes you and I would be like a battered boat tossing about with every wind and waves of things that are false.

The truth is in God’s words, empowered by His Holy Spirit

Through God’s grace, you and I can make it to be the person God wants us to be

We need to stay focus and stay in silence sometimes, listening to God’s voice -to know what’s real from what’s false

Why not take time out today to do just that

God richly Bless you!

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

James 4:17 KJV

God is Merciful

Let nothing separate you from God’s Love
No matter how many weaknesses you think you have, you are very special to God!

You are beautifully and wonderfully made, you need to celebrate God’s handiwork in your life.
A lot of times, people try to note the similarity about their lives to others rather than looking to God’s promises and celebrating what God has given them. Worrying about your short comings will distract you and keep you from fulfilling your destiny.

Don’t waste your time looking back, going over what you did or didn’t do. You may be saying, “I just have to live with the guilts of yesterday”. You and I are not supposed to go about our lives each day feeling condemned, when we already confess our faults.
I don’t need to pay God back for all my mistakes by going around feeling bad, let us get it right- move on to do better! Jesus came so you and I can be forgiven and have an abundant life. So, begin seeing yourself today as God sees you.

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:39 KJV

True Relationship is Healthy

‘Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good’.  When someone expect you to react in harsh manner, you can respond by saying God bless you- they will not know what to say…..

When you’re being accused or taken for granted and people take your meekness for weakness, trying to make you feel bad- considering what they are throwing at you … It’s the enemy at work, trying to distort your peace of mind.

Defeat him and say- Satan you’re a liar in Jesus name, the blood of Jesus rebuke you.

We are living in a world with selfish people, when they can’t get their own way, they allow Satan influences to bring conflicts to their relationship with others.

Some people may have had some bad experiences in their early years and they bring those things into their adulthood and into the lives of others.

Before you know it, these actions can cause good relationships to become distant. The negative effects could bring harm than good.

You may even experience accusations that you can’t seem to understand and you may wonder to yourself, ‘where in God’s name did this come from’? especially if it’s from the person instigating the problem.

You thought you have been having a fairly good relationship, the last time you checked with the individual, but they sneaky about you and let it appear as if you have done them wrongly. That’s the hardest part to work out.

It now appears, they are using others to side with them, at times those persons are vulnerable.

People only do that because they have their own motives, maybe selfish … it’s wrong!

God is just and righteous in judgement. He pays every man according to their works, so you and I don’t have to scheme up anything to make people lives hell!

So, let us therefore

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:21 KJV

Welcome to a new month

Now we have ended our journey of January.

Let’s pause or awhile and reflect on the good things that happened on our journey to -here.

Forget for now, the ugly things, misdemeanours that may have come your way or to someone close to you …. let us give God thanks for enabling us to enter into a new month.

May the presence of God, go before you this month of February. May He protect you from harm and evil. May you be adjusted to God promptings today and always, whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction.

May He lead you besides quiet waters; and may His rod and staff comfort you this month and always. May His goodness and mercy be yours today and forever. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

This month You can choose to be unforgiving, bitter or miserable – or you can choose to forgive, be rational and work through your challenges with peace.

The Mirror today 1/2/19, says- Met Office warns of ‘risk to life’ and Britain shuts early as snowfall hits….  Despite this forecast, let us declare a Very Good Day, a blessed Month.

Surely, if we are honest and true to ourselves, even by our actions, God will surely come through for us.

Be Bless
