Go forth and lunch into the deep
January 2015 during my quiet moment with the Lord, I asked the Lord what He wants me to minister to His people. 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).

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.


MARCH 2019
Jehovah our Father inhabits our PRAISE
Every Moment of our lives is guided by our God. His Grace is sufficient for us. People may change, the world may change but our GOD: „the I Am that I Am“ never changes. Sometimes in life we face Situations that seem bigger than us but God assures us in the book of (Zechariah 4:7 KJV) Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Let your Faith be bigger than your fear. 
 
God is all knowing, a leaf from a tree does not fall to the ground without the will of God. He knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10 KJV) Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, let saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. Whatever happens to us in life there is a reason for it. There is time for every purpose under the heaven. (Read Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV)
 
God knew us before the foundation of the world. We should put God at the center of our lives. Let us complain less and give thanks more. Jehovah our Father inhabits our PRAISE. Let us learn to praise God in all Situations and Circumstances. Praise makes God to move on our behalf and our Praise gives us access to God. And most of all by praising God, we are reminded of the greatness of God.

In the midst of Problems
Trust in God is very vital. Most importantly, when we are in the midst of Problems. God is ever faithful and He is with us, even in the midst of our difficulties. We may sometimes face difficulties and situations that we think are too much for us to bear, but with God on our side we will surely overcome.

What to do when facing problems
1. Fear not
2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version (KJV):
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

2. Keep calm and stay positive
Rage will only lead to confusion and oftentimes damage things more. By staying calm when under pressure we will be able to follow God's guidance and directions. 
Psalm 37: 7-9 King James Version (KJV)
7 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.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

3. Waiting on the Lord in Prayer and fasting
Isaiah 40:31 King James Version (KJV):
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.

4. Trust in God's Salvation and Graces:
Revelation 12:11 King James Version (KJV):
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Remember the story in the book of Exodus when the Israelites were in the midst of trouble, they even thought the Egyptians will captured them.
Exodus 14:13 King James Version (KJV):
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

In this Easter Season the God of Salvation will deliver us from all our Problems. Those Problems that make you to be so sad that you cannot discuss with anybody, God says this month will be the end of those Problems, you shall see them no more (Amen).

THE PATHS OF LIFE
Each morning human wakes,
He tends toward two paths:
A path full of enjoyment and deceit,
you walk it with pleasures of the World and pride,
but there is a path that is so narrow
and you can only walk it with God by your side
no extra luggage is require.
People think it’s a very difficult path,
but the LORD has made it easy, saying:
I am the author and the finisher of your faith.
Written by Kehinde Kasper
 
The world is full of pleasures of the world and so many challenges but the above poem has made us to know that we should look up to Jesus. (Proverbs 14:12 KJV) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
We should walk in the way of the Lord so that we will not be destroyed. You may ask what are the ways of the world, the Bible has made us to know these in (Galatians 5:19-21 KJV)
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Search your life if there is any of these things listed above  present in your life. That means you still have extra luggage in you which you need to drop. Drop it today and turn to Christ. Jesus Christ is calling you now.
(John 6:37 KJV) All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Whatsoever you are passing through, Christ is ready to help.

Are you passing through Oppressions, Distress, Misfortune, Loads of Sin, Poverty, Barrenness, Failure, name it, the Lord is able to deliver you. Jesus shed his blood on the cross so that you might be save and be cleanse from your sin. Accept him today as your Lord and personal saviour and he will save you. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Hold unto him and he will deliver you.

Give your life to Christ now and be born again, tomorrow may be too late. Are you ready now, then confess your sin, forsake your sin, accept Christ and confess him as your Lord and personal saviour.
Now that you are a Christian the Word of God should not cease from you. You should study His Word.
(Psalm 119:105 KJV) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. go to: https://www.jesus-ministry.de/now-that-you-are-a-christian.html

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).

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).

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.

FORGIVENESS
What is Forgiveness?
Forgiveness is the act of pardoning an offender. Forgiveness is a gift and an act of kindness; it is indeed the greatest act of kindness you can give to yourself.
 
Sometimes we find it so hard to forgive people who offend us. Most times the people who offend us are those whom we trust most, someone we look up to, at times the very people whom we love the most and cherish. Forgiving can be hard, especially when someone hurts us.
 
What does the Bible teaches us about forgiveness?
One of the main purpose of christianity is forgiveness. In actual fact forgiveness ist one of the major teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 6:14-15 KJV)
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
(Ephesians 1:7 KJV)
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
 
Through the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ we have redemption and this redemption is the forgiveness of sins.
 
Why is it so hard to forgive?                                                                                            
1. sometimes we were so wounded by people we trusted most. The wound may have been old, but the pain remains fresh.
2. sometimes people treated others unfairly in order to maximize their own power. We often find it difficult to forgive because they've wounded us to our very soul.
 
What does God does with our sins?                                                                                                                                                     
- He erases them
Isaiah 43:24-25 KJV
24 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.
25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
- He does not record them
Psalm 32:2 KJV  
                                                                                                                                                                     
Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
 
- He totally removes them
Psalm 103:12 KJV
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
 
- He nails them to the cross
Colossians 2: 13-14 KJV 
                                                                                                                                                             
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
 
Why do we have to forgive others?                                       
1. From a Gracious God we receive forgiveness; we have all sinned against God
2. Forgiving someone is a difficult thing to do, but it's a necessity for our well-being;  Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself: It improves our life by improving our physical and emotional health.                                                                                                                                
3. Forgiving someone who has hurt you could be the greatest challenge of your life. But if you choose to forgive, you glorify God and reveal His character to those around you.
 
Jesus died on the cross not because something was wrong with him, but because everything was wrong with us.
 
Forgiveness and being reconciled are not about pretending that things are other than they are. It is not patting one another on the back and turning blind eye to the wrong.                                                                          
 
Forgiveness looks sin in the eye and speaks the costly words : "I forgive you."
 
In most cases, the only way to forgive is by remembering. It is important that we do not make a simplistic connection between forgiving and forgetting. True forgiveness requires a careful look at what has actually happened to us. It is possible that we genuinely do not remember what someone has done against us, but most often it is largely a mistake to say, "Forgive and forget." Rather, the judgment of grace enables us, through the power of Holy Spirit, to remember well and deal with it.
- True forgiveness requires the offender to own sin repentantly.
- Genuine repentance goes deeper than apology or the expression of regret.
- forgiveness is given graciously and generously; if they repent, forgive them.
 
Forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting to remember, but remembering to forget.
 
O Lord our GOD, grant us the Grace to genuinely forgive those who ask us for forgiveness.
