In the gospel of John, in the account of Jesus’s resurrection, one woman Mary Magdalene went to the tomb, the place where Jesus’s body was put. Jesus appeared to her there but she did not recognize him at first, she though Jesus was a gardener.
Yes Jesus is the gardener, he tends to us, waters the seed of salvation and through him we grow and mature in the way of the Lord. When we get saved, people get to doubt if we will sustain this salvation. Good news is that you do not need to panic, call to Jesus and let him water your seed of salvation.
Jesus, an amazing gardener intercedes to us to the father, he asks God to give him time to tend to us. He lets God have mercy on us because we are weak and he promises to water us, to grow us and finally produce fruits of righteousness.
Lets all enjoy this beautiful love from our messiah. He waters the seed and we are confident he will come through for us in our sin and our humanly struggles. I love Jesus, do you?
Ooh my messiah, the first born from the dead, my friend, all in all an awesome person, I will indeed praise your beautiful name.
Ezekiel in the bible was given a test by God, his wife was to die and he was not to mourn. It was his test to the children of Israel because God was to take away their most beloved things, their sons and daughters, the desire of their heart because of turning against the Lord.
That was his test, his wife died and he did not mourn, he passed his test. What’s your test? Everyone goes through a test because God wants to use it for his glory to show the world of his awesome deeds.
We especially go through a test if God is going to use us greatly, if we pass the test we become God’s children who have gone through the fire and have been purified.
The year for me started on a rocky note, full of tests and feeling downcast. Through it all I choose to put my hope in God, the storm is now over and God has purified me more and am more stronger and peaceful.
What’s your test? Conquer what you are going through by having hope in him. I remember in those tests I went through, I cried and lacked the greatest faith but I put the little faith I had in God and phew! the pain is gone and am more joyful.
What’s your test? Look to God and win this test you are going through.
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.
