Go forth and lunch into the deep
Two days ago during my quiet moment with the Lord, I asked the Lord what He wants me to minister to His people in this month of January 2015. The LORD spoke to my Heart and said: "go forth and lunch into the deep"

I believe many of us if not all have an habit of making a new year resolution at the beginning of each year. And sometimes we set some goals and we aim for great things. The Lord is saying, go forth, achieve your ambitions, your goals and your aims and lunch into the deep. The Lord is ready to bring us into the next level in our lives and endeavors.

We sometimes have fear of how we are going to achieve our aims, many people have failed to achieve so many hopes and desires in their lives. In the Bible we read about Simon Peter how he has toiled all night and catch no Fish, he has lost hope but Jesus came at that time and minister to him.
(Luke 5:4-8 KJV)
Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

Do we have fear of unknown?  The Bible says in the book of  (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

We should leave behind us all those fear and hindrances. Let us have faith in God, with God all things are possible. We should be sure first that all what we are aiming at is in accordance with the Lord`s will, because only his will can be done in our lives. Hallelujah.

I pray that God will direct our ways and his Will for our lives will be accomplished (Amen).

WHEN THE LORD TURNED AGAIN THE CAPTIVITY OF ZION
(Psalm 126:1 KJV)
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

The people of Zion were in captivity but the Lord rescue them and release them from their captivity. Sometimes we find ourselves in some difficult situations and it seems like there is no way out.  God is a good God. In any situation we find ourselves we should always trust in God because God will never forsake his own people.                                                                                                                                                      
(Psalm 30:5 KJV) For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

God is able to restore all we have lost; more than we could ever imagined. Sometimes we may face disappointment, though it's hard to cope with disappointment, but some disappointments are actually blessings in disguise. Let us put our trust in God because He is the only one who is 100% trustworthy

(Psalm 125 :1 KJV) They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
 
WHAT TO DO WHILE YOU'RE WAITING ON GOD
1.Praying and fasting; The Bible says „ Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16 KJV) 
                                                                                                                        
2. Work hard to know the mind of God on the situation you are
3. Seeking the face of God on what He wants you to do about the Situation you are facing                            
4. Trust in the Lord with all your heart
5. Spend time in Worship
6. Praise God and thank him for what he has done in the past

(Psalm 126:6 KJV) He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

GOD AND THE DESIRES OF OUR HEARTS
(Psalm 37:1-7KJV)
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Have you ever asked God to grant you your heart desire and it seems as if He wouldn’t answer? Does that mean that our heavenly Father has forsaken or forgotten us? The answer is NO.  The good news is that God does not forget whatever we ask Him according to His will.
 
Why do we have to wait sometimes
1. God's timing may not be your timing
Our heavenly Father knows what is best for us, He knows the appropriate time to give us  what we desire. He guides each step we take because He loves us. We should learn to wait patiently on the Lord because His timing is the best. He is a very present help in times of trouble . (Psalm 46:1 KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
 
He will never forsake us but sometimes He wants us to wait on him because what He WANTS TO DO FOR US IS GREATER THAN WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR and he wants to be sure we are mature enough to handle the greater things he has planned to give to us. Of course while waiting we may be worried but at the end we will realise that it pays to wait on the Lord, and it pays to serve Him.
(1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
 
2. Not all that glitters is Gold
Sometimes we as Human desire some things and we really want to have them, but as Human we can't see all the implications and complications attached to what we so much desire. Our heavenly father; JEHOVAH  is all knowing, he knows the end even from the beginning and He will only give us what is good for us because He is a good God
(Romans 8: 28 KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
 
3. The habit of just asking
(Psalm 22: 3 KJV) But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
In other words, God “dwells” in the atmosphere of His praise. We should learn to praise and thank God in every Situation we found ourselves because even before we were formed in our mother's womb he knows us and cares for us: (Jeremiah 1: 5 KJV) Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
 
Praise - Is the voice of faith,  Praise - Is the language of heaven,  Praise - Sets the stage for God to move.
 
4. Do we pray in the right way
In the book of (Luke 11:1-13 KJV) Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us how to pray. The Lord’s Prayer is not a prayer we are to memorize and recite to God. It is an example of the things that should go into a prayer—worship, trust in God, requests, confession, and submission. We are to pray for the things the Lord’s Prayer talks about, using our own words and “customizing” it to our own journey with God. The proper way to pray is to express our hearts to God.
 
5. What is our Intention
The Intentions of our Hearts matter most. If we deceive ourselves and others, we can never deceive God because he knows every intentions of our Hearts. Let us be honest and open with God, He knows us better than we know ourselves. God is more interested in the content of our hearts than the eloquence of our words. Let us always submit our Will to God, because he loves us and has good plans for us.
(Jeremiah 29:11 KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

THOSE WHO WAIT FOR THE LORD
(ISAIAH 40:31KJV)
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

HOW DO WE WAIT UPON THE LORD
In order to wait upon the lord, we need some requirements and these are:
1. Wisdom from God                                                                                                                          
2. Faith in God
3. Focus on God
4. Trust in God
5. Love for God
6. Hope in the Lord
7. Reading the Word of God and believing in it.

With all these requirements we get close to the Trinity and the promise of God to us are: 
1. God will renew our strength
2. We shall mount up with wings like eagles
3. We shall run and not be weary 
4. We shall walk and not faint.

WHAT are the gains of waiting on the LORD and trusting in the LORD                               
There are lots of gains in trusting and waiting upon the Lord.                                                          
(Psalm 125:1-2 KJV)
1They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
2  As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

I pray that as we put our trust in God in all we do and in all we are about to do that the Lord we renew our strength. 
(Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Glory, honor and majesty to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. May the lord abide with us in all we do (Amen).

QUITTING DRUG
Who is a DRUG ADDICT?
Any person who is abnormally dependent on narcotic drug is called drug addict.

Why DRUG?
Many try drugs out of curiosity, or in an effort to ease their problems e.g stress, anxiety or depression. Some get into it through peer pressure, some as a result of stress. 
Sometimes through problems and circumstances some people get to use drug and it resulted to addiction. Drug use has caused problems for many people at home, work, school and in relationships and these has left many isolated , helpless and ashamed. 

Quitting 
Some claim they wanted to quitt taking drug but could not, as a matter of fact, drug addiction is a complex disease and quitting takes more than good intention. Quitting is difficult, even for those who are ready to do so.

No matter how often or how little you are consuming, Drug addiction is a great problem in our society today and many people have died as a result of its consequence. 

Good NEWS
I have a great news for you today, with christ as your help, you can do all things. 
As I have said earlier that drug addiction is a disease but the bible says in the book of (ACT 10: 38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.                                                                                                                                                                                  
God is a great and all powerful God and he is able to do all things. 

(Philippians 4:13 KJV)
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  When you accept Christ into your life, you will be strengthened by Him and He will make all that seem impossible possible.

(Matthew 19:26 KJV)

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Accept Jesus into your life today and your life will not remain the same.

PSALM 125
I love this Psalm. It is one of my favorite Psalms. It keeps renewing my assurance of God's love.
(Psalm125 :1-5 KJV)
1They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the Lord shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

The LORD Almighty is the strength of His people. When we put our trust in Him we will never be put to shame. 
Sometimes things seem to be so hard but we should not let our faith shake. When we love our God and serve Him in truth, He will surely protect and guide us in all our ways.

May God protect us and direct our ways (Amen).

August 2015:
BUY THE TRUTH
(Proverbs 23:23 KJV)
                                                                                                                                                    
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
                                                                                                                                                                     
In this World of ours, the Truth is very rare. People prefer lies. Infact liars get more favour because most time people tend to accept liars more than the trustworthy person.

People lies for so many reasons:
· Some lies to uphold themselves and make themselves more important in the sight of others, all in the name of pride, They tell lies to their friends to make themselves feel more important.
· Some lies to bring others down. Most times when they are envious of the other person they prefer to tell lies against the person and bring the person down, so many souls have been destroyed due to false accusations and lies.
· Some tell lies to get favour, the Bible says Favour comes from the Lord, when the Lord decide to give us favour it does not depend on our lies, God will do what he says he will do. 
 
(Psalm 5:12 KJV)  
                                                                                                                                                                        
For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
 
The TRUTH IS GOLD, but people may never believe this. There are so many nice things in this World but truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding is very very important.

God want us to acquire truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding.
(Proverb 4:7 KJV) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Whatever we want to acquire in the world, we should always aim at wisdom, and understanding, together with TRUTH we will be able to acquire great things in life.
The lie can run for years but the truth catches up with it one day. There is victory of truth over Falsehood.

Wisdom, understanding, instruction and truth are GOLD. God as our loving Father want us to have all these virtues, in all these there is greatness.


September 2015:
I AM BORN OF GOD AND I AM A CHILD OF DESTINY
What does it mean to be born of GOD 
(1 John 5: 1 KJV 
                                                                                                                                              
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
Being born of God is a continuous process, that is why it is incorrect when someone says " I was born of God"; BECAUSE it is not a process that happened just in the past, BUT it is a continuous process. It is different from the process of being born into our family, when we were physically born into this world, we were "Born Of our Parents".
Being born of God is a process that begun at Salvation, it is a continuous process lasting until the Lord comes again or He calls us home.  I am still in God so I am presently born of God and I will forever be born of God. (Hallelujah). 

The criteria of being born of God
No one who is born of God practices sin 
(1 John 3: 9 KJV) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Whosoever is born of God does not sin. Does that mean we are perfect? We are all human but we are in Christ; THAT MAKES A GREAT DIFFERENCE
(Philippians 3:9 KJV) And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

(1 John 2:29KJV) If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

We have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Saviour. We are baptized not only with water but also with the holy spirit. We have submitted our WILLS to the Lord and we are ever ready to follow him wherever he leads us. Our total hope is in him and he will never lead us to a place of DESTRUCTION. He will guide us on the right paths. We are perfect in him, because he is the only one that can make us perfect. Our flesh and our mind are still capable of sinning. But our new spirit is incapable of sinning because it is "Born Of God", and the spirit of God dwells in it. And because the presence of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ Himself now resides in us, and he is the sinless one! It means that, when we stumble, the light of Christ causes us to see our mistakes, to confess our sins and helps us to move forward with Christ.

(Psalm 37 : 23-24 KJV)
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

(1 John 5:18 KJV) We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. (the one who was born of God: JESUS CHRIST)

The Benefits of being in Christ                                                                                          
Everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world

(1 John 5: 4 KJV) 
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
We are victorious. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the World. 

(1 John 4:4 KJV) 
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Our FAITH in GOD is the central purpose of being born of Him.
 
(Matthew 17:20 KJV) And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

We are full heirs with Christ. 

(Romans 8:17 KJV) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

We have the Spirit of God bearing witness to our spirit that we are indeed part of the family of God with full privileges. We may suffer with Christ but we will also be glorified in Christ. 
God bless you.

October 2015:
EZEKIEL CHAPTER 37
Sometimes the situations in our lives may put us off and it seems like there's no way out. This type of condition can be referred to as dry bone in the valley.
 
But the Lord has a word of encouragement for us, which can be found in the book of Ezekiel Chapter 37 KJV.


No matter what we are going through, the Lord has solution to our problems. All we have to do is to speak to the situation in Faith and prophecy into our Lives.
 
What do we require to do in order for the dry bones in our lives to rise again:
1. We have to be born again i.e born of GOD and HOLY SPIRIT.
2. We must have Faith in GOD
3. We should be prayerful
4. We should put on the whole Armor of GOD (read Ephesians 6: 10 - 18 KJV).
 
GOD bless you (Amen).

PSALM 147
(Psalm 147: 1-6 KJV)
1 Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
The Lord lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
There is power in praising God. No matter how many problems you have, learn to count your blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
 
Most of all we should praise the Lord because God is happy when we praise him.                                                                           
(Psalm 22:3 KJV) But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
 
The Reasons why we should praise the Lord:
We have so many reasons to praise the Lord but most of all:
1. We should praise God for the breath of Life. When there is life, there is Hope.
2. We should praise him for His protection over us, few are the dangers we see, many are the dangers God protected us from without us being aware of it.
3. God is a merciful God, we should always praise him for His mercy.
4. Praise bring miracle; when all fail, try praise. God is moved by our praise.
5. The list is unending, what about His purpose for creating us. God's plan for creating us was intentional and deliberate, let's always remember to praise God for this.
 
May God bless us and teach us to know how to praise him (Amen).
 
December 2015
The GIFT of GOD
Christmas is at the corner, we are all excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Christmas is not just the celebration of fun or holiday of enjoyment but it is the appreciation of the greatest GIFT of GOD; the GIFT of Salvation. 

(JOHN 3:16 KJV)                                                                                                                                                       
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Below is a very nice Poem that really reflect what Christmas is all about:
THE LOVE OF GOD
Mankind was in abject darkness and destruction
All hopes faded away
Everyone was living the way they like
Until the greatest gift of God came
And the Word of God became flesh
And dwell among us
Without Him all glory fade away
Nobles fall from life and die
Music loses meaning and
Virtue ceases to exist
He came to give life and hope of glory
He died on the cross of Calvary so that we might not
Die EVERLASTING DEATH
Written by:  Taiwo Opemipo Folorunsho

May GOD bless us in this season of Christmas and may HE made us to know the real meaning of Christmas (amen)
