The barren shall bear fruit

Sometimes we forget that God is the God of all the earth. The famous verse in the fourteenth chapter of the Book of John, that starts off, “In my Father’s house,” is often interpreted that the Father’s house is Heaven. It is not. The Father’s House is Christ, Head and Body. The Father is greater than all, and He is as much the God of the earth as He is the God of Heaven.   The Bible tells us that Sarah was ninety years old when the promise was made to Abraham that she would bear him a son (Gen.17:17). When Sarah heard the promise from inside the tent she laughed. It was not the laughter of rejoicing but of doubt. The Lord's word was 'Is anything too hard for the Lord?' Let us not have unbelief but let us have faith in the word of the Lord that He will make us to bear fruit. Sarah doubted because of her age. You may be a believer for a number of years and you may long for a blessing in your life. You want to be used, to bear fruit. Is anything too hard for the Lord? Notice t

Mercy

SON OF DAVID HAVE MERCY ON US.... Woow so much has been happening since we got into 2020. I'm just going to talk about the one that just hit us , the Corana virus, which has been made a global crisis. The way things are just going down, all we can do is look up to God. As much as the world is going sideways we serve a God who stays faithful. Our God is bigger than any virus, disease, fear or what so ever situation is going around. All i can say is God teach us to trust in your name in these times and have MERCY on us. we cry out for YOUR MERCY OH Lord. MERCY, MERCY,  MECRY.. The mercy of God is one of the most precious realities in the world, one of the most revealing themes in all the Bible, and one of the most tragically misunderstood truths about God. If you want to know who God really is, if you want to peek into his heart, it is not the display of his just wrath and cosmic power to which you should look. Rather, set your eye on his mercy, without minimizing the fullness of hi

Hope in Christ-Prisoner of HOPE

Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles. Zechariah 9:12 Zechariah 9, Christians, being ‘prisoners of hope’. This concept had never really crossed my mind before. Many of us have read that Jesus came as part of His mission to ‘set captives free’, so what then does it mean to become a prisoner again? Surely this makes no sense? But instead of this being an illogical statement, this call to become prisoners of hope instead reveals something very beautiful in the character of God. Do you feel sometimes as though you are hopeless? Well, you are not without hope, you are not hopeless, but helpless. (Repeat) God has put you in a position of helplessness or complete dependency on Him and you are helpless to help yourself. You struggle to gain back some measure of control over your life, but your pride (that you did not even know that you had) is being crushed
Having   Mental   Health   Issues   Doesn’t   Mean   You’re   a   Bad   Christian In fact, owning up to your mental health issues is a sign of spiritual maturity I’m writing about this because the stigma surrounding mental health especially in Christian communities, keeps people locked in prisons of shame, refusing to admit that they need help. If you’re struggling and feel alone, please know that you can still be a Christian and have a mental health issues.   Mental illness is far more prevalent than many realize. With one in four adults struggling with mental illness each year, there's no doubt that there are people in our churches who desperately need love and support. Unfortunately, the church hasn't always done a great job of ministering to those affected by mental illness—either their own or a loved one's illness. But it doesn't have to be that way. This Bible study explores mental illness and what the church can do to help. It also helps clear up comm

Soaring

Isaiah 40:31, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Woow we are half way through the year. I was just thinking some people would have lost hope or faith in the lord. Nevertheless in this season the lord is saying i will renew your strength so that you will finish your race strong and in perfect peace. the same God who started with us will finish with us. Remember that He who began the good work in us will see it to completion, Philippians 1;6. "To wait upon"  means, "to bind together (by twisting)." Those who wait upon God are in a sense wilfully binding themselves to God’s will, confidently expecting His plan to produce the best possible results. Waiting on God does not mean simply watching the time until God delivers. The English word "waiting" can be equated with the act of serving.  Let me give an example of Waiters, t

Battle of the Soul

Battle of the soul There is a battle raging for the soul of every individual on earth. There is a battle raging for every church, for every city, and every nation. Victories are being won in many places across the earth, but the greatest are yet to come. Multitudes of new spiritual warriors are now being mobilized, trained, and will soon be sent forth. They will be entrusted with divinely powerful weapons and they will use them. They will tear down the enemy’s strongholds over the minds of men. A force is about to be released like the world has never seen.  Choose Your Weapon One of the most powerful spiritual weapons that has been given to God’s people is peace. We may think that peace is not a weapon. But in fact, it is such a weapon that Paul did not write it was the Lord of hosts, or the Lord of armies, who would crush the enemy, but said  “...the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet” (Romans 16:20) . When we abide in the peace of God it is both

Steadfast Love: deep clouds,deep mercy

 Steadfast Love: Deep clouds, deep mercy How could anyone cry out, “Great is your faithfulness!” in the middle of loss? The answer is that Jeremiah knew God could turn tragedy into triumph. He had a revelation of God’s steadfast love. A love that is resolute despite surrounding circumstances. In the middle of his sorrow, He finds hope and comfort in his God. Jeremiah said, Just as Jeremiah describes it in his book “The steadfast love of the L ᴏ ʀ ᴅ never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ( Lamentations 3:22–23 ). Have you ever wondered why Jeremiah says that God’s steadfast love and mercies never cease and yet they are new every morning? How is something that never ceases, new? Every Single Moment Is New with God, for he keeps no record of our wrongs. This is how our Heavenly Father recklessly loves us. “God’s enduring love and constant mercies are not only new every morning, but new every moment.” Every si
