Word of the day


In order to bring forth the sweetness, there has to be some suffering. To bring

about the beauty of the flame, something must go to ashes.

Blessings come from suffering; beauty for ashes (Isaiah 61:3). This is borne

out so well in Hebrews 12, verse 11, which says: “Now no chastening seems

joyful for the present, but painful: nevertheless afterward it yields the

peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it”


It’s like a giant hand taking a honeycomb and squeezing it and out comes the

honey. Or it’s like when Moses smote the rock: The rock received a blow, but

out came the water (Exodus 17:1-7). The heart of stone has to be broken before

the water [of God’s Spirit] can flow out to refresh the people. It’s like a

beautiful flower that’s pressed and crushed, out comes the perfume. The perfume

smells good to everyone.


Or like the beautiful music that comes from the throat of the bird, almost as

though it’s in pain, yet it comes forth with song. Even though the bird’s song

may be sad, it’s so sweet. The groans are not murmurs, but songs of praise and

thanksgiving to God’s sad, sweet song! As the great poet Shelley once said, Our

sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thoughts!

Praise is the voice of faith!


We could never appreciate the light unless we had once been in darkness. We

couldn’t appreciate health unless we had been sick. We can’t appreciate joy

until we’ve known sorrow. We can’t appreciate God’s mercy until we’ve known the

Devil’s justice.


“Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” (1Cor.1:4)

Word of the day

Frustrated? It may be because you’re trying to make something happen that only God can make happen.

Whenever you are doing what God has called you to do, it is important to rely on His strength, His grace, and His power to complete your task. You will become frustrated if you try to make things happen on your own strength instead of relying on God. God is the author and finisher of His plans (Hebrews 12:2), and you must not try to take the place of God if you expect things to work out.
In Colossians 1:26-27, Paul reveals a mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations… Christ in you, the hope of glory. In other words, there is something that people of the past didn’t know—it was hidden from them, a mystery to them—but Paul is now revealing that mystery to us: Christ lives in all who believe in Him! No longer is God just with his people—God now lives in his people!
Also, note that it is Christ in you that’s the hope of glory—not Christ and you.
Paul then continues by saying that he labors and works for the gospel, but all of his labor is really done by Christ’s power, which so powerfully works in [him] (Colossians 1:29).
If you’re trying to labor without Christ’s power at work within you, then your labor will be frustrating and in vain. You need to stop trying, and start dying to self so that you may be alive to Christ’s power.
Struggle and frustration occur when you try to do God’s job by your own strength—rather than relying on Christ’s strength, which is at work in you.
Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God often chooses to use lowly people so that He can show His greatness through them. When you think you have it all together and have everything going in your favor, then you won’t lean on God—you’ll rely on your own strength.
But if you know that you can’t do something on your own, then you’ll rely on God for strength—and that’s when God can show His greatness. Every single person has amazing potential to do great things for God. Regardless of your talents, you can do outstanding things for God. All God is looking for is people like David, who have a right heart that is open and available for God to work through. If you find yourself broken and in obvious need of God’s help, don’t despair. God can use you anyway, because God is not necessarily looking for ability; He’s looking for availability.

Ocober is the Tenth Month In the Bible, the number 10 is used 242 times. The designation “10th” is used 79 times. Ten is also viewed as a complete and perfect number, as is 3, 7 and 12.

Christianity is Christ, salvation is complete and comprehensive. The moment a person is saved by faith
in Christ, that person is complete. That individual has everything he or she needs to live the Christian
life in a Godly way. We as believers lack nothing because Christ lacks nothing and He’s the one who provided the salvation.

The completeness of Christianity rest on the person of Jesus Christ, not on our works, merit or accomplishments. Any person who attempts to sway you away from whom Christ is and from the complete and comprehensive salvation that He provides, is to be rejected as a heretic, no matter whom they are nor what they say. In Christ are hid the storehouse of wisdom and knowledge.

In Christ, we as believers are to live steadfast in Him, rooted and built up in Him, abounding in thankfulness to Him. We are not to allow any person, religion, denomination, angel or demon to rob us from what we have in Christ Jesus. We are not to allow the philosophies of man, no matter how intelligent it may sound, no matter how convincing it may appeal to the mind or the flesh, to draw us away, to entice us away from Christ Jesus, in whom is everything. Christ is the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form. In Christ is the fullness of deity, because He is God. Because of whom He is, we are complete. Notice in chapter 2 verse 10, that we are complete IN HIM, not in our performance, or in our religion or in our theology, but IN HIM, IN CHRIST, I AM COMPLETE!!

Do you have an evil heart?

An evil heart can spring up at any time. Heb. 3:13

Bitterness can spring up.

In many families, churches, relationships, etc., where there was once love, bitterness  has taken over. How sad!  

Heb. 12:15 “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”

As weeds have a tendency to always spring up where  they ought not be, so does bitterness.


  1. Do you find church services boring?
  2. Do you find true joy in Bible study?
  3. Do you enjoy the company of brethren?
  4. Do you get mad at others when they rebuke you?
  5. Are you truly interested in souls?




Word of the day

It doesn’t matter who has overlooked you or cut you out of their promotion list. If you are walking with God being after God’s heart, your day of breakthrough is coming.
David, Jesse’s last born was not invited when Prophet Samuel showed at their house, he was like a nobody and they didn’t seem they cared much about him. The beautiful news was that David was the very purpose the Prophet came, to annoint him in preparation of what was awaiting him, Be the King of Gods people.
Your breakthrough is not in the hands of your haters or those who rejoice in when they hear you are in trouble but in the hands of God who looks at the Heart and not the outside appearance.

God Will Take Care of You!

 “The Lord…has given rest to his people.” 1Ki 8:56 NIV

Live for today, and put tomorrow into God’s hands. Begin to eliminate the words

“what if” from your vocabulary. God will always be one step ahead of you. “The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed” (Dt 31:8 NKJV). The reason God is called the “Alpha and Omega” in Scripture is because He not only initiates the starting point of your spiritual journey, He has arranged every step of it according with His will. He says to you: “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope…when you pray, I will listen…I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes” (Jer 29:11-14 NLT). If you’re fearful of the future, check with the past. “Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to His people…according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised” (1Ki 8:56 NKJV). You will never conquer your worries entirely, for worries, just like weaknesses and character flaws, draw you closer to God and keep you dependent on Him.

For forty years in the wilderness the Israelites never missed a meal. God delivered it to the door of each of their tents daily. And He will provide for you too. “Not so in haste, my heart! Have faith in God, and wait; although he lingers long, he never comes too late.”

Word of the day


In Luke 12:35-40, Jesus clearly explains what every believer must do. First, the believer must be ready for Christ’s return. The believer must always be spiritually ready, for there will be no time to get ready after He comes. Secondly, the believer must be watching at all times in anticipation of Christ’s return. Verse 40 says, “You must also be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

If a huge snow storm was coming, you would prepare. You would get enough food and supplies to last several days. You would watch the weather to see exactly when the storm is coming and how long the storm is expected to last.

If a hurricane was heading for your home, you would prepare. You would watch the weather to see if the hurricane was going to hit in your area. You would find out exactly how strong the storm was going to be. If necessary, you would board up the windows. You would take every precaution to protect your family and belongings.

As Christian believers, we must maintain a sense of urgency about the second coming of Christ. We must constantly be ready and watching for Christ’s return. Are you ready? Have you asked Jesus into your heart? Are you watching? Have you become complacent? Are you telling others about Jesus?


God Bless.


Our trails either define who you are or refine You.

It is what we do with the Trails and how we handle them that makes the difference on how we come out of them.

No Test comes to us to make us weak or frail or fail. My Trails Define and Refine Me. Your greatest hurt is the opportunity for your greatest Growth”

Be willing to walk through every hurting situation. And defining circumstances.

So be truly glad!* There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold.
So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.



 Every person has a destiny in God. God has a great plan for each person in the world. The problem is that we often get out of God’s plan. We see things and formulate plans that we think would be wonderful, but God has something far more special for us than we could ever imagine. A study at the life of Joseph illustrates this truth{Genesis 37: 3-11}. Joseph’s life demonstrates the reality of Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
            It is always important for Christians to know that God is at work behind the daily circumstances of our lives. He is using them to keep molding us into a greater image – that of Himself. The life of Joseph can provide a lot of principles on how we ought to respond to God’s process of molding:


The more you doubt, the more you’ll have to live without.

Complaining is one of the worst traps that many Christians fall into. A complainer thinks, “I can’t stand my boss. If she would only treat me better, I’d be happy. I hate this traffic. Why can the government improve traffic flow with all the tax money I pay?” This is a deceptive trap because it leads one to believe that life would be better if something would be different. However,
it is far more productive for to believe that God can change the situation than to doubt him.
This trap of complaining is the same trap that the Israelites fell into. They were not satisfied with what God had given them and they continually wanted more. Psalm 106:12-15 is a great example of what happens to people who are unthankful and always want more: Then they [Israel] believed his promises and sang his praise. But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel. In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test. So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them.
That passage refers the Israelites’ persistent request for food, water, and other basic resources.

They didn’t trust God; they doubted his ability to provide and tested him. So, because of their doubt, God sent a wasting disease upon them.

Furthermore, for forty years God withheld the promised land from them. Their doubt caused them to live without.
