A real heroine

Last week, the press reported about the murder of Gayle Williams, a Christian aid worker murdered by the Taliban in Afghanistan for allegedly preaching Christianity. I salute the faith of this young woman whose life was cruelly cut short by religious fanatics. Gayle is one in a long list of modern day martyrs that reminds us of the high cost of discipleship, a price worth paying because God gave His best for us and He is worth giving all up for! Please join me and salute Gayle and the many others, some of whom we may never know of, whose faith are prize jewels in God’s crown!

  

~ A word for your week ~ Rev 12:11

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” Gayle and the many others like her have successfully and victoriously overcome the enemy, Satan, the devil. No more shall the enemy tempt them or try them again, they went to glory in faith, not changing their confession or testimony because they know Him and that He was worth it! They esteemed Him much more than anything the world has to offer – Heb 11:24-26. And nothing could separate them from the love of Christ – Rom 8:32. I believe the testimony of Gayle and others like her should challenge every one of us to be willing to give our all for the King and His kingdom. Nothing in this present age should be able to compare and compete with our love for Him. There should be nothing, absolutely nothing that should have a higher priority than serving Him in our lives. Remember that He is before all things – Col 1:17. I strongly encourage you to make this the golden rule of your life! Let Jesus Christ be before all things in your life! He certainly is in mine.

As you begin a new week, I prophesy that…

Ø Your week shall be one of reaching forth for those things that matter and count for eternity

Ø Your days shall be filled with kingdom exploits and kingdom victories

Ø No more shall you know vanity and emptiness of life. You shall henceforth live a Christ-centred life

Ø Your life shall bring glory and honour to the Most High

Ø As you take a stand for Christ, the entire power and might of heaven shall stand for you!

Ø Mighty shall your testimony be both in heaven and on earth

 

Have a great week!

The real hero

The Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, has been hailed in the press in the UK and in other parts of the world as a hero because of the financial solution he negotiated to bail out the struggling British banks. Of course, I credit him for the initiative and ability to do what he had to do. But as you and I know, all man’s solutions are temporary and may not survive the next challenge. The real hero to me is the One who has given man an eternal solution. A solution that will stand the test of time regardless of the generation. His solution is not British, American, or specific to some other race or culture. The British solution is for Britain. The American solution is for the Americans. Each solution is tied to a people or a culture. The real hero’s solution is for one and all, it is for every people group and every culture. It is not limited by time, space or capacity and has been tried and tested and found to work! And who is the real hero? He needs no introduction really, but for completeness, He is Jesus the Christ! He is my true Hero and I hope He is yours too!

~ A word for your week ~ Matt 6:19-21

Continuing from last week, another question I’d like to ask is where is your heart? Where your heart is will be dependent on where your treasure is. You cannot be investing in the Divine economy and your heart be moved by the unpredictable swings of your natural economy. You cannot be rich towards God and not have His peace to guide you when things are tough, as they are now in the world. If your heart is palpitating because of the instability in the financial markets, then, you need to run to the Prince of peace for help! And surely, help is available because He is more than able to help you!

As you begin a new week, I prophesy that…

Ø  Your week shall be one of comfort, ease and peace

Ø  Your light shall shine brighter and brighter to the glory of God

Ø  God will open unto you His good treasure so that you will not lack any good thing

Ø  The favour of the Lord shall attend your life, day and night

Ø  God shall exceed your expectation of Him in every aspect of your life – job, career, family, business and ministry. 

Have a great week!

Unity in crisis?

For the last few weeks, we have heard calls from Heads of governments around the world, particularly the West, calling for nations to unite and follow a common framework of financial policies and packages to beat the global financial crisis. The call is to unite! Unity in crisis? President George W Bush says “In an interconnected world, no nation will gain by driving down the fortunes of another. We are in this together. We will come through it together.” Sadly, this is man trying to forge a unity that can only be achieved in Christ. “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All this were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist” – Col 1:16-17 (NKJV) 

~ A word for your week ~ Matt 6:19-21

Beloved, our text this week is on a subject that I talked about previously. Here the Bible encourages us to focus and invest more in the kingdom of God because there is safety and security. Unlike the economies of the world, now facing all kinds of instability, upheavals and crisis, God’s kingdom would never suffer any instability. God assures those that invest in His kingdom that He will protect them. But the question is, where is your treasure? Where are you investing? Only in worldly economies? I pray not! The text says where your treasure is there your heart will be also. I pray that your treasure is in God’s kingdom, safe in His Hands! To be continued …

Your value can never diminish!

For the last few weeks, we have all been bombarded with news of decreasing values of shares of various companies here in the UK and in other parts of the world. This is typical of all man-made institutions, man determines and sets the value and when challenges come down the road, the values change and fluctuate with every wind that blows. But for you, the child of God, your value has been set by God, no man, challenge or problem can ever de-value you! You are valuable, precious and rare, and nothing can change that!

~ A word for your week ~ Ephesians 2:10

Beloved, our text this week says that we are His workmanship. Workmanship means the product or result of the skill of a worker or an artisan. As the product or result of an artisan, the artisan determines and sets the value. God is the great Artisan who created us and has set our value. The proof? His Son Jesus Christ! So valuable are you that it took the blood of his Son to redeem you, nothing else could do it. Regardless of what your story may be, do not let your negative experiences in life de-value you! You may have gone through a divorce, bankruptcy, faced health challenges, been duped or betrayed by people whom you trusted; you are still God’s workmanship, His masterpiece, His handiwork and the result of His great skill! You are valuable and your value is eternal! Set by our eternal God. Praise God!

As you begin a new week, I prophesy that…

  • You shall be who God has called you to be
  • No man, no devil or situation in life will be able to deter you from accomplishing the plan of God for your life
  • Like the eagle, you rise and soar above every storm
  • Your life shall be one of increasing value
  • Precious shall you always be to God and man

Have a great week!
