Women: Salt to the World

Thanks to Facebook for always making a pop on my wall everyday, flooding my wall with flow of reminiscences. I have always appreciated each of those reminiscents and I will continue to even if any turns out to be an ugly past. Most times, ugly past has a way of forcing one to be thankful to God for being an overcomer. 

So exceptional about today’s Facebook reminder is where it tends to, International Women’s Day. I love good women and I doff my hat for them. My knowledge of who a woman is emmanated from what my Bible tells me in Genesis 2 and Proverbs 31. Father Abraham saw her and said she is of his extract. To all the good women all over the world, I say to you all, you are good indeed. My affirmation is not because I have a beautiful and blessed woman in my life but because I have come to conclude that women are integral parts of the good side of this world.

At a time, I used to be nosy rossy about the purpose of having women in the world and each time I go on soliloquy inquiry I always ended up getting more questions staring me in


 the face. This went on for long and a time came I read about a woman’s price being far above rubies. What a revealing truth! I believe this truth because it is the word of God. 

Furtherance on the world women’s day is my one cent admonition to women all over the world. I am pleading with them to take possession of whatsoever treasure God has placed in their jurisdiction to manage. Your husband is one of the many treasures in your jurisdiction to manage and in getting the best out of every man is the place of wisdom. Women must be conscious of the role wisdom plays in family building. Rarest thing in the 21st century family is wisdom of home keeping. Women as a matter of responsibility is very germane to this call of buckling up in acquiring home keeping wisdom. Getting it right in this wise will bring about a fair world to live in.

By nature, women are great and highly influential. Their contribution to God’s purpose for human creation can not be downplayed irrespective of their errors in history. If you are a woman and true to your affirmation, you are a good woman, then you must continue carrying yourself with honorable gait.

Women; I celebrate your contributions to human race.

I celebrate your ingenuity.

I celebrate God’s grace upon you.

I celebrate your supportive role to your husband.

I celebrate your quality home building efforts.

I celebrate you African woman!

The Present Help

​Bible Text Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 

If there is something that amazes me so much about God, it is His love for everyone irrespective of our position for or against Him. God loves us beyond measure and that is why He helps all the time. Also in the Psalms of David 121:1&2,Psalms  121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  121:2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. Help could not have come from anyone except from God, the one that made the heaven and the earth.

If you have been looking up abroad for help, let that stop henceforth and start looking up above, where God dwells. I am of the position that whatsoever man can not do, look up to God to do it for you. Your friend could give you free ride but he or she can not secure you from car crash. God can save you from any form of crash, either physical or spiritual. It is my prayer for you that God will continue to help you in all ramifications.

Do not doubt God when it comes to believing Him for help. He may not show up the way you are expecting him, but he’ll definitely going to come for you in a miraculous way. My God is always present as Help to His children.

Be Drawn to God

Bible Text

1 ​Samuel 1:2 And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.1:10 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.

This world will on a daily basis continue to witness mixture of ups and downs. These mixtures is there most times to put lovers of God to test. To confirm if there is corresponding faithfulness from them to God.

Hannah in the bible passage of 1st Samuel 1 was a conspicuous character in the narration of hopes dashed year in year out. She did not turn away from serving God because of her predicament 1st Samuel 1:21 And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow, neither did she stop praying while her countenance was sorrowful. 1st Samuel 1:21 And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow. 

Do not let issues of life draw you away from God. Your challenges may be a test before testimonies. Let God be at the center of all your life challenges and you will live to testify of God’s goodness.

From Humble Beginning 

Bible Text 

​Esther 2:15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.2:17 And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. 

I present to you the hit line of a young maiden that became great from a little humble beginning. Brethren, your beginning no matter how rough is not sufficient to excuse you from exercising restraint towards life. Yours is to live in the will and purpose of God while the execution of the purpose is carried out by God through His vessels

 

Esther never gave up on life. She remained humble and adherent to the tenets of decent living. She did not gratify herself into rough living even while life was rough. Brothers and sisters, failures has excuses as wall of defence, while successful people are courageous even in the face of adversity. 

What are you confronted with at the moment? Always reflect on the memory of simple beginning with high hopes of a colourful future. Dare to be different like Esther was. She never requested for any material benefit save what Hegai gave to her because her focus was on the crown. You are the next in line to be crowned now in Jesus’ Christ name. 

The Kingdom Business 

​Bible Text 

Acts  6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

God’s consideration for giving assignment to people is not premised on fluency or look. Availability is the most important consideration. The apostles decided to remain focused by appointing men of good report to non spiritual aspect of the ministry work. 

If God has called you to serve in His vineyard, you  can not at the same time be given another assignment that will continue to distract you. Moses made himself available to view the burning bush and from there God opened channel of conversation with him. Forget about the tittle and other ephemerals and go for the mantle. 

Kingdom Business requires commitment and unwavering focus. As a shepered, it is very important that one does not get caught in the web of ephemerals. Care giving is very important, but it must not take the place of primary assignment of the shepered. Prayers and ministering the word of God must from time to time remain the primary foundation of the kingdom business. I pray that the Lord will keep you from being found wanting in your place of assignment in Jesus’ name.

The Light of Men Part 2

Bible Text 

​John  1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Several works of miracles have attested to the power in the name of Jesus. Jesus did not just come for the sake of walking this space, but He was made manifest for the eternal liberation of man. In John 9:7, the man born blind from birth received his sight because of an encounter with the Light of men.

I assure you this day, it is not possible that you will relate with Jesus truthfully and your life will remain the same. Something transformational must be evident. It was when Jesus came into my life that I began to do away with everything negative

 His light scraped anger out of my life. I used to be an unrepentant anger dominated boy. His light in my life made the difference. 

I can continue to tell you a lot about the Light of men, Jesus Christ but one thing is crucial in all, and that is your readiness to allow Him in your life. Do you desire peace and progress? If yes, then go for the Light of men.


The Light of Men

​John  1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Light is so important that whenever it shines people always beam with smiles and joy. Jesus came to the world to destroy the works of darkness. He accomplished the mission on the cross when the veil of the temple was torn into two. From there, Jesus became the access to the Father. 

Your eyes will be darkened if you do not have Jesus Christ and you will not be able to see the Father. When you surrender your life to Jesus, you have been blessed with a light that can never experience outtage. 

Brethren, let your Light so shine that all may come to your light. Jesus is not for you only, let others experience Jesus and their eyes will not be darkened. I pray for you now, you will continue to shine to the glory of God. Note this, your shinning is not disturbing anyone except those that are in the kingdom of darkness.
