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
THOSE WHO WAIT FOR THE LORD
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)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 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).

NO ONE AND NOTHING CAN STAND IN THE WAY OF MESSIAH'S PROVIDENCE
(Zechariah 4: 1-14 KJV)
1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
7 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.
8 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lordof the whole earth.
When Jesus says yes, nobody can say no. Sometimes we find ourselves in some difficult situations and it seems like there is no way out. The Bible says Christ in us is the hope of glory. Who can stand in the way of Messiah's Providence? Nobody!
God has proved to me in so many occasions that Nothing and No One can stand in the way of his Providence. He is our living HOPE. He is the HOPE OF GLORY.
(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.
When we put our total trust in God and we commit our ways to him then our lives are sure and secure. God loves us and he is ever faithful.
Nothing or no one can hinder God from accomplishing His purposes in our lives.
We should commit our plans to God. He is the beginning and the end. He knows everything about our lives and He is ever faithful.
( Proverbs 16 :3 KJV)
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
No one can hold back his hand or say to him: What have you done?
My God is a miracle God, he will never change. He will do what he says he will do. People may Change, the earth may be remove but God will never Change.
The LORD is good all the time!
May the God of love be with us and continue to guide our ways (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.
The Wonderful and Amazing Gift from God to us
one of the most wonderful and amazing Gifts from God to us is the Holy Spirit. Our journeys as Christians in this world of ours, are no easy task. But thanks to THE COMFORTER; THE HELPER: THE HOLY SPIRIT.
John 16:7 King James Version (KJV): Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Sometimes we might face discouraging situations, but knowing the Spirit within us will enable us to do whatever He’s called us to accomplish, will give us the courage to forge ahead in the midst of the challenges.
one of my best Chapters in the Bible is Act Chapter 2. I so much love the description of how the Holy Spirit came. The Book of Acts 2: 1-4 explains some of the ATTRIBUTES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Acts 2: 1-4 King James Version (KJV):
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The Holy Spirit is a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind and he is the cloven tongues like as of fire. The Holy Spirit of God empowers us and guides us into all truth.
The Holy Spirit is our helper without him we are nothing.
Romans 8:26 King James Version (KJV):
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
THE LOVE THAT SURPASSES ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING
(Ephesians 3 :14-19 KJV)
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
God is LOVE and in Him we can be sure of unfailing love forever. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation. We can trust him, rely on him, depend on him totally and without reservation. People may disappoint us, but God remains the same. His foundation remains firm and unshakeable.
(Hebrews 13: 8 KJV) Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
(Malachi 3: 6 KJV) For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
LOVE (GOD) WILL NEVER FAIL
(John 15:13 KJV)
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
GOD'S LOVE STANDS FIRM AND SECURE
No matter what we are facing right now. No matter how difficult the situation is, it won't last forever.
(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.
John 3:16-17 KJV
16 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.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
The main purpose of HIS LOVE for us is that we may have life everlasting.
Are you born again? If not please do not loss this opportunity. Give your life to Christ today and accept him as your lord and personal saviour. To know more about Jesus Christ and Salvation go to:
God bless you (Amen).
