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!

Committed to your fulfillment

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

When I was younger, I had a wish. I wished that I could move from street to street selling to anyone who cared to buy.
I admired people who moved about carrying their wares on their heads because I felt they had the privilege of sightseeing and freedom of movement. 
The only chance I got to see places was when we were in the car on our way to church or school. 
The other times were when we occasionally visited Amusement Park or stopped by the then famous Mr. Biggs for lunch. This was in the 90’s. I soon got bored from seeing the same routes and sights.

I wished for more sightseeing opportunities and freedom of movement. I thought the only way I could get those was to be like the other children or adults who hawked their wares.
One day, my wish came to be!
