THE PROMISE THAT NEVER FAILS

He that puts his trust in man

Making him his greatest pal

Praising him with all names

Will see nothing but shame

 

Man may promise to impress

Or cheer-up the distressed

But the moment his promise’s been said

He may forget all but himself

 

The promise that never fails

The promise that God says

Our confidence in Him alone

Gives us more than we ever know

 

In His promise is direction and light

In His promise is abundant life

In His promise is unending wealth

In His promise is health and strength

 

In His promise are those ‘Godsend’–

People and resources He sends for our help

In Him is all that we need

To become all we must be

 

 

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118:8-9

 

MEDITATION: GOD is enough.

THE JUSTIFIED

The stuttering Moses

Like a thorn amidst roses

Fighting for his own to the extreme

Once a baby at the stream….

 

The Jesses’ youngest – David

Ruddy and not lazy

Forgotten by loved ones

When he went shepherding the flocks

 

The Jewish Esther

An orphan so tender

In total obedience to her helper-

Her dear family member

 

The promiscuous Rahab

In kindness radiant

Hiding the spies from danger

Of Jericho’s rangers

 

Moses had no smooth voice

Yet he was the Lord’s choice

In Jesse’s house, David was most irrelevant

But to God he was the most significant

 

Esther though a ‘nobody’

At the palace God made her a ‘somebody’

And Rahab the one known as a harlot

From her lineage God brought the Messiah forth

 

Just to mention a few

Of all that God chose and made new

Proving that He doesn’t choose the qualified

But the justified who He now qualifies

 

Knowing that we have been called

Not because we were strong

We must live to give Him glory

Through all of our Life’s story

 

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the thing that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption- that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:26-31

 

 

THOSE THINGS…

Our troubles
Our struggles
Those things that make us fret
Are only a stepping stone to strength…


Our shame
Our pain
Those things that make us feel ‘lame’
All have a way of leading to gain…


Our errors
Our failures
Those vices that make us feel lost
Are sometimes moulding a better us…


Our ‘defeat’
And all that make us unfit
Those soar parts of our story
Do have a way of leading to victory…


Our tears
Our fears
Those things we dread to face
Are to be used to build our courage…


Keep breathing
Keep believing
Keep living with strong hope
Dwell not on the stones life throws…


Never give up
Even when it's tough
Let out good attitudes
Like that of gratitude…


There’s an end
A product of faith or fear
What you believe
That, you’ll receive….

“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7 (NIV)

AWAY FROM THE NEGATIVES

Worries
Fears
Pessimisms…
Negative thoughts – soul’s fever
From your heart sever

Frustration
Anger
Guilt
Negative feelings –
Start peeling

Destructive criticisms
Slanders
Curses…
Negative words –
Don’t put to work

Love
Faith
Hope
Vibes of gratitude –
Let them reign in magnitude

Go positive
Overcome the negatives
Believe you can win
And by grace you will
Here are better days indeed!

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ephesians 4:31-32 (NIV)
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:14

CORNER’S END

Are we still together
Are our trials louder
Are we busy pointing fingers
At the expense of becoming stronger?

You are a light
And so am I
Are we shining bright
Or full of criticism that we forget to shine?

Everyone is condemning
What exactly are we contending?
Our destructive criticisms keep extending
Could we divert that energy to constructing?

It’s time to leave the corner
In that shell hide no longer
Not an outing to join the scorners
Come out with your strive to make Nigeria better!

The church isn’t left out of this one
Cowardly she hides, binding demonic legions
Oh how you hide in the corner of religion
Go back to your Bible and learn from the likes of Gideon

Our heroes did not just seek God’s throne
They also came out of their comfort zone
They believed and in faith they glowed
They changed the world though they were mortal souls

Come out and do your part
You and I, we all should start
This is not a play and its cast
It’s redeeming our nation from her past

In your talents, dreams and visions
Don’t forget you can do something for our nation
Wherever you are, let minds be inspired by your motions
Let’s all stand to reveal our nation as an awesome creation!

And the light shines in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 1:5

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:16

BLESSED!

Not so much on my dress
May not be found in the press
But it’s a great news! I am blessed!

Though great is the test
In God’s love I find rest
Nothing can stop this truth, I am blessed!

I won’t settle for less
‘Will stay with God and not make a mess
No one can curse me, I am blessed!

In God’s strength I break off the nest
I soar as one of His very best
I live in His blessings, I am blessed!

To dare the toughest I am set
Everyday brighter are my steps
I live in His spirit, I am blessed!

It’s my season to sit at the ‘king’s desk’
As a very important guest
God made it so, I am blessed!!!

“Blessed be God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”

FEET OF FLESH

Been a long journey from where I did start
Now I’m here, wondering if I would last
My hands look frail, my feet of flesh now shake
Keep me wondering if I wouldn’t stray

My hope is You won’t let me go
Just because You love me so
I’ve said the vow but still I know
It’s Your grace that will make me grow

So I take my mind off failing
I take my mind off straying
My focus on You alone
It’s amazing the strength from Your throne

I win
Though this struggle is real
Still I win
Because You live in me

Yes this battle is fierce
Still I will not fret
Knowing my victory in You is sure
You alone remain my trust.
