Reflecting His glory back to him is extremely important. Living lives as Christians and serving God can be a hard task. Jesus glorified God more than himself, at one point in His teachings one man called him “Good”, and he said there is no one good but the father.
Jesus was the son of God, but he took it away from him, he took the glory away from him and He reflected it back to the Father.
Lets all learn from this, that the more we take the focus from us and direct it to God, we go from glory to glory and we become more prosperous in our walk of salvation. The devil wanted God’s glory but look what happened, he was sent down to the deep, dark pit as fast as lightening.
When we serve and let God take all the glory, then we become more joyful and we share in His glory. When we give God glory then He in turn reflect it on us, and we become more like him and we walk with a spark in our eyes.
All the Glory to God and take none for yourself.
The desires of your heart are what God puts in us when we need him after knowing of His love. He says delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart, lets wrap our heads around this and lets know for sure He will do it.
Our desires could be of righteousness, a good life or just an amazing person you want to be. Your desires are given to you by God. Desiring his things is just the first step to realizing his love. God knows our desires and he promises us to fulfill all of them.
Lets need God and slowly receive his amazing desires as he pours them in our hearts. Lets be radiant as we look to him, lets glow with his glory because we have put our hopes in him.
Looking through life with the lense of God’s love and him pouring his desires on us is such a great gift. Your desires are not your’s , there are a promise of God’s love to us. Let Go your worries and tell God you need him and receive an amazing transformation.
With his abundance, lets desire of him and like happy souls lets live for him knowing that He will take care of us anyway.
We all love people who are consistent. Consistent in terms of their love for us or being good to us, people are always changing, today they love you and the next day they show you their bad side.
He however never changes. God never changes, his love is consistent and he always wants to do good for us. When you are bogged down and thinking how people changed from good to bad, you can look up and see a savior who never changes.
So you think people can be consistent? And you have trusted them? Poor you, they will always change because every human being is work in progress. If you changed and I changed too, what makes the person next to you remain the same.
People change from good to bad, from bad to good, but good news is that God remains ever good and his mercies are new every morning.
When situations change and you are discouraged, you can now rest knowing my God is always good and He works everything for good.
Live with an open mind, knowing things will change but also know God never changes.
He indeed never changes!
Think about people who go through traumatizing cancer experiences. I have seen my grandmother going through the pain of throat cancer; it was devastating for her and for the family too.
Cancer seems like a disease for certain people, and those who have not gone through the pain may be mistaken to think it does not affect them. Cancer affects the majority of us and that’s why jeremiahblogs.co.ke is giving a chance to people to share their story on cancer.
In this hopelessness that hits the cancer patient and the family, I believe there is a story of victory. When my grandmother was diagnosed with throat cancer much later after it has taken root, it was impossible for her to cure and she later rested with the Lord.
I remember the eve before her death praying that God might not take her, but I believe God let her go so that I might talk about this cancer one day. God was then doing a beautiful thing through a painful experience.
We need your cancer story, we need a story that can encourage another cancer patient to find hope. Have you gone through a painful cancer experience and you overcame? Or do you have stories of people who are completely healed from cancer thanks to the power of God? Kindly share your story and we will share it with hurting cancer patients.
If you are going through cancer right now, write to us and we will pray with you and encourage you.

When we go through something uncomfortable, we might think we are the only ones going through it. The body of Christ (Christians) throughout the world is going through a challenge even now!
You are not the only one. I realized recently that Christians are connected in spirit; therefore if one Christian overcomes something then we all overcome. We are one body as a church.
Stop wallowing in self pity and focus on Jesus. Standing with other Christians, let’s realize we are fighting one battle. Encourage one another in prayer, in words and in actions. We are not isolated individuals; we are firmly held together in Christ and with one unity let’s press on.
You are not the only one going through an addiction, low self esteem or rejection. If you overcome believe it or not, a Christian somewhere has overcome too.
We are surrounded with a great cloud of witnesses, and therefore they cheer us on. Keep putting more effort and building your spiritual muscle (reading the word of God).
You are not the only one my friend.
So here you are celebrating the goodness of God after He did something ‘awesome!’ yeah you throw a party or even go for a thanksgiving service. Two days later something bad happens and you suddenly go from glory to shame.
We could be deceived that God no longer loves us, if things work against us. “Remember what He did” I say unto you. Yes, it was painful to see something bad happen, but hasn’t God done something good in the past?
If we allow situations to dictate how good or bad God could be, then we lose it and we could live frustrated. Remember what God did two years ago when you thought you would be crippled after that horrible accident, you went through hell but finally you won, and now you can walk.
The best thing one can ever do is, remembering the goodness of the Lord. You will receive strength to move on.
The life we live in can change suddenly from good to bad, from tears to joy, but one thing remain constant, ‘the goodness of God.’
Smile and remember what God did. Now stand up and encourage someone in this difficult phase of your life.
Who do you magnify? I mean if you magnify your weakness you will become even weaker, if you magnify your strength then a great warrior you will become.
Magnify your strength that is, God. Oooh that’s not easy though. Magnifying God means praising Him even in the midst of your struggle, now that’s hard.
It is hard to say “God is good” when you are hurting. It takes little strength however to say “God does not love me”
When we say the negative about God, we magnify the devil and thus fail in our walk as Christians. Magnifying God even in our problems means we are growing more mature in Him, and this makes Him smile down on us.
I will praise God in my downs and it is my prayer you will too. When we learn the art of always agreeing with God, we receive more peace and more spiritual strength.
I hope you will Magnify God More Today. Have a nice day.
“If we do not give up, we shall reap in due time”, so shall we and everybody say Amen!
But don’t we think that we need more muscle? Muscle for what? We need a stronger spiritual muscle. A spiritual muscle that will keep us from giving up and in the end let Jesus throw a party.
Jesus wants to throw a party for you, but the problem is that you are giving up! I go through moments where I feel there is no hope, it is dark and I feel God has kept quiet.
Keep moving, eye has not seen nor ear heard what the Lord has prepared for you. Please let Jesus throw a party for you. Keep holding on and keep fighting the spiritual war.
The devil knows you are destined for good, he however won’t allow it. Resist him and he will flee from you.
I am standing on God’s promises and so should you. Jesus wants you my friend to conquer.
Please allow Jesus to throw a party if you don’t give up.
Months ago when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas and things hit rock bottom. One man had the heat turned on Him. He was accused of not opening his Lakewood Church to displaced people and the world threw stones at him for not acting ‘godly’.
This man was Joel Osteen. He tried explaining to the world that they too were taking safety measures to ensure the church was not flooded, but they did not understand still.
He said the location of the church had a history of flooding and that taking people in could be risky. He later opened the church after He thought the time was right. The church hosted the displaced persons and it was well.
In the midst of this accusations, were Christians who in their own wisdom threw a stone at Him. It was as if Joel Osteen and them were on opposing sides. This was shocking to me, to see the church divided and disintegrating while the world cheered on.
The unity of the church is at stake, lets choose to stand by one another. Castigating other Christians or Men of God in a way that makes the church becoming a laughing stock should be avoided.
We are one body of Christ, sticking together at this times is more that important for the strengthening of the church. When we feel justified to shout down a fellow Christian, without first trying to understand them is a mistake we should avoid at all costs.
We should stand together to win more souls to Christ and not judge others. A true mark of Christianity is to Love regardless of anything or any circumstance.
When we are angry or in disagreement with someone, we most at times raise our voices. A couple of months ago I had this happening to me, I raised my voice to someone and it hurt them so much.
So as a good Christian I recognized my mistake, I repented to God and apologized to them. This led to me thinking that perhaps keeping my voice down would have helped. Honestly I just don’t think but I know that. Putting our voices down should be our priority especially if we get angry.
In this world where times could be uncertain, so much pressure and hurtful experiences could occur to all of us, it is important to cultivate this skill; putting our voices down.
It simply arises from being able to have self- control; a fruit of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in us as Christians and the seed of self- control in us, so therefore let’s allow the seed to grow so that even the world may see it.
Putting our voices down requires discipline and we can all have that discipline by allowing the Holy Spirit to take control of us.
Put your voice down for the sake of peace. When we argue or quarrel we give the devil a foot hold, but being of a self- controlled nature brings peace to everyone.
