As Christians, we have been called unto liberty in Christ. And in that liberty we have rights. One of such rights is the right to choose.
You are a child of God and God’s will is revealed in you and to you. You can decide what you want because you are the expression of the will of God. The Bible says in Acts 22:14-15, “And he said, the God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.”
In life, we encounter so many “buts”. Sometimes, these “buts” are the cause of tons of unfulfilled dreams and plans.
So how do we deal with the “buts” that come our way? How do we go beyond these seemingly just reasons that derail us from achieving what we planned to? Share your thoughts right here…right now.Hot & Sizziling tagged by pastortv
At the Global Communion Service, the man of God, Pastor Chris declared April as the month of Laughter. Glory to God!!
The Bible says in Genesis 21:1-6, “And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.”
In Psalm 126:1-6, the Bible says “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing; then said they among the heathen, the Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us: whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepest, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
When God performs miracle for you, sometimes it’s like dreaming; it’s so unreal to the mind. Not because you didn’t have faith but the glory of the miracle sometimes is overwhelming.
It doesn’t matter what you are going through, there is hope for you. This month, you will laugh and laugh again because the glory of God is upon you; the anointing of the Spirit of God is upon you. That which you have asked the Lord for, He has granted; and that which you had desired of Him, He has given you. For the Bible says “for the Lord did according to His word unto Sarah.” God has visited you and He has brought His word to pass in your life. This month is the time to laugh!!
Let us know what the Lord has done that has brought laughter to you. Post your testimonies and comments NOWUncategorized tagged by pastortv
What is Faithfulness?
Three tests of faithfulness:
How faithful would you consider yourself in these areas?Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold” (Proverbs 22:1KJV)
On several occasions God changed the names of those who walked with him. He changed Abram (supposed father) to Abraham (the father of many nations) and Sarai to Sarah (the mother of princes). Jesus also changed Simon (reed or unstable) to Peter (rock). This lets us know how much importance God places on names.
Now if your name has a negative meaning, or if it has no meaning at all, you can decide to change it. Your name should reflect the kind of person you want to be and the kind of life you want to live. Your name reveals you and tells what you represent. You can live up to your name. So, what’s your name?
Leave a comment with your name, its meaning and the glorious things you may have experienced in your life as a result of that name. And if you have now decided to change your name, give us your new name, its meaning and what you expect to see in your life henceforth as you answer it.
The Man of God, Pastor Chris declared at the March Global Communion Service, that March is our Month of Placement! Glory to God!
Words are thoughts clothed with vocabulary. Thoughts are the specific, descriptive imaginations of the mind, which are from the information received through the senses.
The Bible says in James 3:5 (The Message Translation), “A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything-or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire”.
Statistics say that the average number of words spoken per day by a person is 16,000. But how many of these words spoken are valuable? What value do your words have? Share your thoughts now.Prayers tagged by pastortv
In Genesis chapter one, God was operating on a spiritual principle which can be more clearly seen in James 1:14-15. “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” Sin is the product of lust, and lust actually means a strong, urgent, evil desire.
Though this scripture directly relates to a negative desire, yet we find this principle does not only work in the negative realm but also in the positive. When a man is tempted, his lust, that is, the wrong desire tries to pull him away. Finally when he agrees with the wrong desire in his mind, he is enticed. Initially a seed is sown when the man is drawn away by his own lust. This principle does not only work in the negative realm, because good desire can also conceive. And of course you should expect a better result when good desire conceives.
Light is stronger than darkness, good is better, greater and stronger than evil. So if evil desire can conceive and bring forth, good desire can conceive and bring forth its own kind. This is exactly what God demonstrated in Genesis1:2: “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” And in Genesis 1:11-12: “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yeilding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
This is another principle: everything brings forth after its own kind. So you see, when good desire conceives, it will naturally bring forth good things, just as lust brings forth sin. It happens without being forced. So when God had fully conceived what He wanted the earth to be like, He spoke and it came into being.Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
“Whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant” (Matthew 20:26-27). This scripture underscores the responsibility of service – selfless service – as a key to greatness! Today, the Lord is letting us know that whoever must be great should be a servant – a minister. Now, the word “minister” as used above is from the Greek word “diakonos” which means an attendant, one who serves or runs errands for others; one who renders selfless service.
You’ve been called to service; both to God and of mankind. God is mindful and concerned about people more than anything else. Thus, when you serve people through your work, the Lord will be mindful of you and bless you as well. He’ll cause everything you do to prosper.
The Bible says there’s profit in all labour (Proverbs 14:23). In other words, when you faithfully render service, you’ll surely prosper. You may be a policeman, civil servant, or even the chief executive of a corporation; it doesn’t matter the job or business you do, when your goal is to render quality and selfless service, your greatness will be inevitable. Greed has stopped many from serving their nation and people as they should. Don’t let that be your story. Don’t let the desire for excessive and inordinate gain be your driving force in life. Refuse to yield yourself to such.
Become motivated by the joy of service. Be inspired by the importance and relevance of your job or business towards the betterment of your society. Make yourself needed, relevant and indispensable to your generation by choosing to serve, for that is the pathway to greatness.Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:2).
From the scripture above, we notice that it was God who spoke to Abraham and said, “I will make you great”; it wasn’t Abraham who cried out, “O Lord, make me great!” It was God’s choice to make him great, and from that point on, the man did great things. He defeated five kings and their armies with three hundred servants trained in his house (Genesis 14). His wealth and influence outweighed those of the nations where he dwelt. He was a force to be reckoned with by kings of nations around him because of how great he was.
The Bible says, “if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). If you’re born again, you’re the seed of Abraham; the seed of greatness is in your spirit. Therefore, you ought to do great things. Great people do great things. When the seed of greatness is in a man, he’ll undoubtedly do great things that will be spoken of for generations after Him. Never think small or see yourself as small. You’re the offspring of the great God of glory; His seed of greatness is in you. It’s your set time to do great things.
Every day, tell yourself, “I’m doing great things, for the Spirit of God lives in me! I refuse to think small or do small things. I’m born for greatness!”
Remember, you were born into greatness! Your family history is replete with stories and feats of greatness. I’m not talking about your earthly family, but the family of God to which you belong. This is your time to do great things in the Kingdom of God. It’s your set time to do exploits in your job, business, academics and other areas of your life.
Happy New Year
