Overcoming Your Obstacles by Faith

Overcoming Your Obstacles by Faith By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were compassed about 7 days. Hebrews 11:30 God had promised the children of Israel a land that flowed with milk and honey> But between them and the fulfilment of God’s promise was mighty Jericho. Jericho was a great city. It seemed as though it was impregnable and unconquerable. It seemed as though it said to Joshua and to the children of Israel, Stay out and stay away from the fulfilment Continue reading →

God Gives Wisdom

God Gives Wisdom Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ! We are living in the days of experiencing an information explosion. There is a lot of knowledge in our day. We have mountains of data. But we have little wisdom. Books and education can give us knowledge. But only God can give us wisdom (Pro. 2:6). Wisdom is the principal thing. It is supreme. That is why the Bible tells us that we need to get wisdom (Pro. 4:7). The people of Continue reading →

Christian Unity

Christian Unity “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1) Dearly beloved in Christ, living in unity with fellow brothers and sisters is very essential for successful Christian life. The metaphors the Scripture uses to define God’s people show us the importance of unity. We are a ‘family’ (1 Tim 5:1, 2) and believers are all brothers and sisters. We are a ‘flock’ (John 10:16) and the believers are all sheep that live together. We are the “Body of Continue reading →

Praise your way to a Breakthrough

Praise your way to a Breakthrough   Praise, according to the Scriptures, is an act of our will that flows out of an awe and reverence for our Creator. Praise gives glory to God and opens us up to a deeper union with Him. It turns our attention off of our problems and on the nature and character of God Himself. We must praise God because He is worthy of our praise (1 Chron. 16:25; Rev. 5:11-14). Another reason to praise God is simple obedience. The Continue reading →

How To Avoid Backsliding?

How To Avoid Backsliding? Watch and pray. Keep the fire of prayer burning in your life. Jesus told the disciples, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation” (Matt 26:41 NKJV). Mark 14:38 and Luke 22:46 record a similar instruction by Jesus. Unfortunately the disciples slept off in the place of prayer and couldn’t withstand the temptation that followed. They all deserted him. Maintain a vibrant private prayer life. Walk in the spirit. To walk in the spirit means to live according to your new life in the Holy Spirit. Gal 5:16 says, “So Continue reading →

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Lord, Teach Us to Pray Luke 11:1 Prayer is the Key to transformation, revival and every kind of godly blessing.  The prayer life of Jesus prompted one of the disciples to ask him, ‘Lord, Teach us to pray’.

4 ANSWERS TO PRAYER

We must remember that answers to prayers will come in several ways from God: 1. There is a DIRECT answer. Sometimes we pray for a specific request and it is answered at once, without any delay. It is very thrilling to see God respond instantly by granting our request that we had prayed about. All of us are full of joy when God answers our prayers in this way (James 1:5; 5:17; I Kings 18:36-38; Matthew 20:33, 34; Acts.9:40). 2. There is a DELAYED answer Continue reading →

10 Reasons Why We Fail In Evangelism

The desire of my heart as a Pastor and Christian is that I lead my church to become just as passionate and intentional in evangelism and reaching souls. It seems as if churches and Pastors are content to trade disgruntled or discontented church members and call it growth rather than seeing true growth through evangelism. Dr. Kermit Long says, “With all our education, our fine buildings, our image of the church, we are doing less to win people to Christ than our unschooled forefathers did. Continue reading →

WALKING IN THE FAVOUR OF GOD

Praise be to the Lord who has extended his good favour to me. Ezra 7:28 Every child of God needs the favour of God upon his/her life. The favour of God takes a believer to places where money and qualifications cannot take. The favour of God will bring opportunities into your life which skill and hard work cannot bring. If all you have has only come through toil and sweat, then you are leading a very difficult life. What hard work and sweat cannot bring Continue reading →
