Hello everyone; I hope you are all well? I know I’ve been distant with blogging, but I endeavour to keep up with the monthly posts. I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the support given, in prayer my two books; currently on Amazon: It’s Time to Heal and my new exclusive book; Completion – From the Perspective of Brokenness.
Can you believe we only have three months left until this year is finished?
I am going to share a few things I have learnt in September. There have been serious testing times, especially in the area of my Faith. I had a discussion with a dear friend of mine and we spoke on the importance of seeking God daily. I realised that when I had an issue, I would be the first to run to God and pray, but when my need was met, I wouldn’t be as consistent in spending quality time with Him.
Why is it that when we are ill or lose a loved one, or lose a job we are so quick to get counsel and comfort from God? We pray we fast, we come off social media? This is what I was exposed to; I was shown that I only seek God for what He can give me, but not to have quality time. This cut me deep. As humans, we do it, whether we notice it or not. God always wants quality time with His children, yet He never stops loving us when we look astray.
To me, September is a new season, a new start. Do not let these remaining few months pass you by, making you focus only on yourself. You are not the only person who has needs (Read Philippians 2:1-4). God has placed people around you to minister and speak life into. Why was I exposed to all this in such a short time? I believe it was due to my FAITH. Our Faith will be tested in ways that it won’t even occur. You may wake up planning your day, but God will disrupt your plans, challenge your mind and make you examine your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Let this be your encouragement ladies and gentlemen. Please do not seek God for what He can do for you, but get intimate with Him, get grounded in Him, let Him be your firm foundation. When this becomes consistent, you will know how to handle your problems in maturity, consistent prayer and joy. When plans look contradictory to what you have set, it will cause you to strengthen your Faith to know that God has got you!
The woman with the issue of blood is one of my favourite scriptures. She endured a lot for 12 years until she made a decision that it was enough! She spent all of her substance with worthless physicians who could not treat her. BUT GOD CAME THROUGH! God really made me understand that people around me can’t always help because they can’t understand the way God can. She knew that Jesus was passing her by and didn’t want to miss the opportunity! When will you wake up and make a decision not to lose your chance with the Father? Can’t you see how our world is going today? How much can God do to bring your attention to Him?
Don’t let it be late; God’s Grace is very sufficient for you! Testimonies to come soon! In the meantime, I want to encourage you to increase your Faith, REST in God, know your worth, and BELIEVE FOR THE BEST! Your situation may look gloomy right now, but BELIEVE! Do not doubt, do not fear do not worry; change the way you think and eventually, you will see a change. I am truly a living testimony of God’s goodness. The thought of letting go of all the baggage has given me the strength to face the trials in 2017, and although there are many to come, I am ASSURED AND FULLY CONFIDENT that God’s Grace is sufficient for me, and it is sufficient for you too!
