WHY PRAYER WON’T ALWAYS SHIELD YOU





January is the month when heaven gets the highest fillings of prayer. With nearly every Christian community fasting and praying, we would be in order to think so.

After 21, 30, 40, 70 or even 100 days of fasting and praying, it’s common for us to expect that nothing bad would happen to us.

After faithfully fasting and praying, we can’t possibly be expecting a heart wrenching doctor’s report, death of a loved one, betrayal or anything capable of making us wonder if God forgot us at the park on His last trip to attend to our cousin or friend who appears to be His favourite. 

Read: Did He Really Ignore you?

So what if the bad things happen? After all the fasting and prayer. What should you heart’s disposition be?

Jesus prayed all night before choosing his disciples. Yet He chose Judas  Iscariot who ceremoniously served him over to his enemies in a kissed lacey tray. (Luke 6:12).

Why didn’t Jesus’ midnight prayer in a solitary place delete Judas’ betrayal from the list of experiences He would have that year?

It’s easy to see that Judas’ betrayal was necessary for Jesus to fulfill his ultimate purpose on earth (To die as an atonement for my sins and yours). 

Read: Betrayed


Did the betrayal hurt Jesus? You bet it did.
Did He want to die? You bet He didn’t.  (Luke 22:42)
Did God use the betrayal for Jesus glory and His? Apparently He did.

Here are a few things I need us to glean from Jesus’ experience.

       1.    We don’t pray to make things go perfect".
 Our definition of perfect for our lives is flawed in every sense. What we call terrible experiences are lubricants in the wheel (will) of God for our lives.

     2.   We pray to be aligned with the will of God even if it includes betrayal, a heart break, an outrageous medial report, a loss or whatever. 
It’s never God’s will that we suffer or have to deal with ugly life experiences, but it is His will to use all of those experiences for His glory and ours like He did with Jesus’ betrayal. 

Read: The Exchange

We must often remember that there is a grander scheme. That scheme encapsulates every single detail in our lives, summed up into God’s glorious good for us. This knowledge will help us embrace the steepness and smoothness of our paths.

Prayers won't always shield you; but it will always help you harness and access the beauty of God's will in all things.

As you pray,
1.         Believe that no evil will befall you.
2.         Ready your heart for rough patches
3.         Steady your gaze on God’s unfailing love for you    which works everything together for your good.

Soar in His love!

Committed to your fulfillment

4 QUESTIONS THAT HELP YOU DEFINE YOUR VISION EFFECTIVELY



The Webster dictionary defines vision as the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom
We know that visions are goals, aspirations, imaginations.  it becomes interesting to see why many companies and organizations have vision statements.
Vision statements are the definitions/description of our goals.
The vision statement of every single organization describes the desired future position of such organization, company or body.
There shouldn't be a serious life, organization, company, thrift without a vision statement (definition of their vision/goal/ envisioned desired position).
Defining your life vision gives meaning and strategies for its fulfillment.
Below are four questions things to consider when defining your vision.
1:  What has been?
This is a question you will need to ask yourself in order to effectively define your vision. It gives you answers centered around your journey so far.
It makes you aware of what you have been through(experiences garnered and lessons learnt over the years) that have shaped your mindset and attitude towards this vision you have for yourself.
See, when Habakkuk said in chapter 2 VS 2 that we should write the vision and make it plain, He was telling us that vision is birthed in awareness.
When you are aware,  you will decipher  If you are fit for the vision/goal set before you.

 2: What is?
The first and only vision of every Christian is to portray Christ in ALL we do (both in the significant and insignificant things). Your vision statement should contain detailed description of how you intend to do this.
This question will spur a discovery in you.
At this level, you should ask yourself questions about your present attitude, fears, personality, and habits that will either help you or debar you from actualizing the vision.

3: What would be?
This is a forecast.
At this level, you'd have to answer the question, “Would I fulfill the vision lf continued at my present pace, with my present attitude, personality, level of passion, habits?
You most likely need to do a self evaluation at this point.

4 : What should be?
You have a blueprint of the vision you are pursuing.
At this level, you need to sit down and go through that blueprint and EAT IT! Make it a part of your system.
As I pointed out earlier, the vision is designed to portray Christ. The blueprint is embedded in the manuscript that has been handed to us. Remember, what ever is pure, holy, lovely should be found among you.
Remember to love God with your heart and mind and body, love your neighbors as yourself is the ultimate laws.
Remember to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
These are the blueprint of the vision we have been called to run with.
When we know what should be, it becomes expedient for us to sit down and sync what would be with what should be. 
If these doesn't sync, you may just be running a wrong, stress-filled, futile race.
Finally,
Ensure you have a relationship with the One who has and gave you the vision. It is His vision and you can't run it without receiving instruction from Him.
Isaiah 31:21 says, “...You will hear a voice behind you saying this is the way walk in it.”
 Until you're ready to work and walk in total obedience and reckless abandonment, dropping every light/ heavy weight that may cause you to get weary of doing good and seeking God's kingdom, you may just be running the wrong race.

DID HE REALLY IGNORE YOU?



If you’ve ever been at a spot where you felt like God placed your call on divert? You will totally relate with this post.

Life can give us all shades of grey. The shade we see determines the sustainability of our joy through those rough times.

Jesus had become really close to Lazarus and his two pretty sisters- Mary and Martha. Jesus the supreme healer who went about doing good was their very own intimate friend turned brother. When Lazarus fell ill, there was no better person to call other than their healing friend. Jesus got the news but stayed back at his location.

One would have thought Jesus didn’t care about Lazarus. It would be human to think of it that way. However, the divine thought about it differently.


Does it feel like God has ignored your calls lately? Below are some inspirations from Lazarus’ experience.

    1.    God holds back so that when he eventually shows up (He certainly does), His wondrous work in your life would be beyond doubt.

 Think of it this way, you like it when He comes through; He likes it more when his works in your life is impossible to scoff, query or doubt.  How about that?

That’s why someone reading this called him to give them a child at some point; He waited a little bit to send them a baby the grand way (ear shocking, heart bursting).


   2.   God speaks the end so whatever He is told you would still be even if the story doesn’t play out as expected.

Jesus said Lazarus’ sickness wasn’t unto death. However Lazarus died and was buried!

 We could easily say Jesus was lying. People could have even thought for a moment that Jesus’ prophetic declaration failed this time.

We need to understand that God doesn’t speak from our human realms of limitation. He always speaks the done deal.

Did God gave you a word and what He said would or wouldn’t happen played out the opposite way? Don’t worry. The end isn’t until it is.


   3.   God has a term for your current situation. He definitely doesn’t call it the end.

Jesus said Lazarus was sleeping. How laughable is that? Very funny , if you ask me. Lazarus was in the grave already. He had been buried for four solid days and Jesus could dare call that sleeping? He termed Lazarus’ death as sleep?

God has a term for your situation. Use his terms and call it what He calls it.
Don’t call it what medical science calls it. Don’t call it what economic science calls it. Call it what He calls it. He calls it temporal and He hasn’t just the intention but also the ability to safely bring you through it into your desired end.

Please don’t give a permanent label (death) to something God has called temporal (sleep).



   4.   Every time God delays, we get the opportunity to see a new dimension of Him that we otherwise wouldn’t have seen.

Jesus told his disciples that Lazarus was actually dead. They didn’t understand his grammar when he earlier said Lazarus was asleep. They were surprised when He said, “Let’s go wake him up”.

Jesus was glad he wasn’t there because now, the disciples would know beyond doubt that who he was and what He could do. (John 11:15)

Instead of looking out for what "sin"  you may have committed to deserve such grey rose in your life right now, look out for what dimension of God’s immaculate goodness he is about to show you through the grey situation.



   5.   Though He tarries, He won’t take as much length of time as you fear.

When Jesus told pretty Mary that her brother will arise? She thought He was referring to the resurrection morning. Jesus told her “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying” (John 11:25 NKJV)

The words, “I am” was the same words God used in revealing himself to Moses.

I believe God says He is “I am” because He would be anything required by our situations.

In Lazarus’ situation, I am showed up as the resurrection and the life. In your situation, what do you think he would show up as?

I am can be the womb constructor
I am can be the lost funds restorer
I am can be the broken relationship builder
I am can be anything your situation requires!!!
So don’t think it’s going to take him forever to fix.

I am introduces himself in the present tense because He is our ever present help in time of trouble.

The moment Jesus introduced himself as the resurrection and Life, Mary caught it!
She proclaimed, Yes Lord. I have always believed you are the messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.” (John 11:27 NKJV)
At that proclamation, Jesus proceeded to give life to her once dead brother.

Do you at least, believe in Jesus as your savior? Do you believe in Him as the son of God?
If you do believe these things, then it shouldn’t be hard to believe that your situation isn’t a statement of his permanent intention. He is still working for you.


Go chill in praise to Him!
