They call themselves the digital generation. Yes, the digital generation indeed. What they do not know is that God is the king of digital.
When Jesus died on the cross, He signified the end of slaughtering of animals to be used as sacrifice and through Him we no longer need to carry around animals to the altar. All we need to do is kneel anywhere, at home or at work or in the toilet and let our requests know to God, isn’t that digital enough?
In a beautiful generation like this that is here today, we make a mistake of thinking salvation and the things of God are old school. In fact woe unto the unbelievers because the old school syndrome is in them, the bible says when one gets saved, then the old is gone and behold the new is come.
Being proud and rejoicing in the joy of the Lord is something this digital generation should cultivate. When Jesus comes He separates darkness and brings a light in our life that makes us glow with radiance.
He who believes in Jesus shall not perish but will have eternal life. Check how you live my dear digital bother or digital sister. The time is coming when the truth and the lie will be made separate, stand with Jesus, the truth, the way and the life. I see some of my readers exuding some negative vibes when I write about Jesus and when I share my testimony of victory in Jesus.
The truth is I am indebted to this Jesus for the Love He has continuously shown me. Today realize my fellow digital friends that Jesus is the author of the digital life you are enjoying today. Turn to him and lets all sing glory glory to God on High.
I AM A DIGITAL GUY AND PROUD OF JESUS, ARE YOU? THEN JOIN THE MOVEMENT AND TAKE THE GOSPEL TO THE WORLD.
Books have been written about different life investments, be it land investment, property investments among many more investments, but books on a Christian investment are not as prominent as the former.
Today give me two minutes to let you know why it is important to invest as a Christian, but what investment? You ask curiously. I am here for you, now sit down, grab a glass of water and let’s explore this beautiful investment.
A Christian investment is the prayers, fasting and reading the word of God. Some Christians find it hard to spend time in prayer, in fasting and in reading the bible. I am who I am today because of such an investment. Time will come when you might not be able to pray, or fast or read the word, that’s when you realize the investment you made in prayer carries you through that moment.
I beseech anyone who is a Christian to make this investment. In a world where people are running for success and money, let’s be alert as Christians and realize the power of investing in our beautiful Faith.
The fasting I used to do when I was in high school carried me through a point in my life when all I wanted was to die. It was in those moments I felt I was almost being drown by the storms of life, but each time I thought I was going down my investment was a testimony of my standing with God.
Today invest in reading the word of God, each time you read the Word ensure that you seek the Holy Spirit to make you remember of that word in your bad days. That word you read can be the greatest strength you need 1 year from now.
BE AN INVESTOR IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
Total surrender to the power of the Holy Spirit has been something I struggled with for a long period of time, till I finally decided I am going to fully surrender to Him and see what would happen to me.
For me surrender was a big word, which sounded like giving your power to someone who you were not sure they would take care of me if I surrendered to them.
So here I am after the surrender and unbelievably things are working more than just fine. The power of the Holy Spirit is working immensely in my life, I feel I come alive every single step of my walk with God and Him (the Holy Spirit) breathing in me has been awesome!
For Christians surrender to God is the most difficult thing, many Christians are afraid and they tremble at the words ‘surrender to God’.
Today as a Christian realize that the more you surrender to God, to Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the more the spiritual blessings in your life and abundance in every area of your life.
I am living free from condemnation, shame, sin and guilt by simply surrendering to the Holy Spirit.
TODAY SURRENDER TO THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Dreams dreams dreams… and more dreams. So how do dreamers look like? Today I am fully convinced that any journey of a dreamer is riddled with difficulty, rejection and people closest to them not understanding them.
If you have dreams and aspirations of making it big in any field of life, then know you have declared war with the devil. he will try with all his ‘might’ to destroy you. This is actually a strong indicator that your dream is a very good thing that will benefit lots of people.
The journey of a dreamer put the likes of Joseph in the Bible into great trouble. His brothers decided to sell him off as a slave so that they could do away with the dreamer, what they forgot however is that the dreamer kept living on. Joseph eventually made it and became a powerful man in another country, though it was not a walk in paradise but the dreamer finally made it.
We all have dreams, but few of us can endure the struggle of following our dreams to completion. Stand to be counted and make it to the Promised Land.
Many years back when I thought of writing, I felt like it was mission impossible for me. Today I am writing and reaching thousands of people with my writing. I am with the help of the Holy Spirit finding new thoughts every day to write them down and share with the world. I am spreading hope and to the cast down Jesus is using me to lift them from their shadows of despair.
Dreamers sometimes appear like crazy men and women who are just harboring crazy ideas about crazy things. If you have a dream move on with it, use the small resources you have to start. Do not wait for tomorrow or the day before, remember you will ripe in due time if you do not give up.
I am passionate about dreamers who do it for God, because service to God is service to man. Strive to achieve not for selfish gains but for service to humanity. Today say, “I am a dreamer made to prosper in the land of the living.”
I am the quiet guy who enjoys his own company. Yet some people find it hard to believe that introverts can actually be that different and still thrive in this world. Being an introvert has been a journey I have had to accept and learn how to cope up with the challenges that come along.
I have cried because I felt I could not make friends as other people would easily do, but in the midst of that season I found a new song, a song of victory and triumph. For me being an introvert was like a disease that needed immediate attention, and I got the attention and now I am healed completely. The scars of the old are gone and now I am focused on loving the Me that I am.
Personality is something really amazing that God imparted in us while still growing in our mothers’ womb. So beautiful is personality but so deadly is its handling. You could be introverted and feeling cast down like I was, then this is your article. Hold on and accept who you are.
Introverted people could be perceived boring, but to the introverts always be the sparkle that will fade away the boredom inside of you or around you. Sometimes in the journey of the introvert, it feels like a walk in the dark and the journey can be so difficult till you say, “I wish death comes.” One thing is for sure that night dwells for a season but behold day break comes with a song of praise.
I was stuck in that corner of lost hope and despair, but God picked me and molded me. Today I am a happy soul that still thrives in the midst of thorny ground. “I am made of God” I say while giving myself a part on the back. I let all the pain of feeling rejected go and give it to Jesus to carry it while I am made free.
Introverts are such amazing people, who have a very good vision that is in danger of being shattered by the devil. You can check through characteristics of being an introvert and learn why some people hate being introverts. One thing is for sure ‘INTROVERTS RUN THE WORLD’ be encouraged and be of calm mind dear introvert.
It happened to me a few days ago, when a feeling of not wanting to forgive started creeping in. I had lately started feeling that I have been forgiving people a lot.
Maybe someone would say a nasty word at me and I will almost immediately start remembering of the bad things he/she had said in the past that I had forgiven already. It was in this confusion and lack of direction that I felt God was calling out to me to forgive as much times as He had forgiven me of my iniquities. I heeded the call and I forgave all the people who had been a thorn to me in recent times.
That experience got me writing this article and I thought you need this so much. Maybe you are unstuck in this unforgiveness corner that you have made a hiding place. You think probably you have forgiven enough and now it’s time to revenge. Believe me it is never a good thing to revenge, be the bigger person and let it go…
When you forgive and smile at those who thought they had won the fight by crushing you, you actually make them feel miserable and they whisper at each other, “how come?”
It is not a very easy thing to forgive people but at least you can try and see how much God will bless you if for once you let people off your heart…
There is a phase that goes like this, if you resent people or a person in your heart, then it is likened to taking poison and expecting your enemies to drop dead! Wow, forgive and let go so that you are not imprisoned by people.
BE SMART AND LET GO! TOGETHER WE SHOULD NEVER GET TIRED TO FORGIVE.
“There is now no condemnation for those who are in the Lord”, and that’s so true.
The devil will be the best accuser when we fail as people who know the Lord, he will crush us with our shortcomings and try as much as he can to shutter us under his unable, powerless and weak wobbling feet. But as the Lord lives we are more than conquerors and He will forever live because He is the Alpha and Omega.
Our accuser, the devil will always find ways to condemn us with our past and sometimes as Christians we give in to his accusation and we feel condemned, and slowly we are weighed down with the burden of sins of the past which Jesus has already carried for us.
Today declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. So why are you cast down oh my soul? Ask yourself and lift your eyes to the Lord from whence comes your help.
My life has been riddled with such accusations, and I thought maybe it was the Holy Spirit condemning me. I however realized from amazing preachings from the pastors who feed me the word of the Lord that, when the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins He points us to Jesus, but when the devil does the accusation he brings shame to us.
I broke loose of all the condemnation! And declared my righteousness in Jesus. Today I would love to beseech you my brother or sister that you should break loose of any condemnation that weighs you down and believe Jesus did it all for you.
I am not encouraging people to dwell in sin, but I am encouraging you and you to dwell in Jesus and when you fail and fall off the path of righteousness do not feel condemned but dust off yourself and seek God’s forgiveness. Jesus loves you and will always forgive us.
BREAK LOOSE FROM ALL CONDEMNATION AND SHOUT, “I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST.”
And that was his past. “What happened?” she asked. “That was a story long gone” he said, not paying much attention on her. This was his life now and if anybody cared to ask about his past, he would simply say, “That was a story long gone.” True to his word that was his life then, having lived that painful life which no one could wish for. And his life now? Well it was not heaven but at least it was not hell.
The years when he would live in the streets, in the corridors where people passed without looking back unless they used the same path to return. He was now 30 years old; a closer look showed he did not have a good life at a younger age. He was short in height, chocolate black in complexion, had that mockery smile, careless hands and his legs as if enduring carrying the weight of the whole body walked slowly.
He loved black suits and he constantly put on a coat even on a hot day to hide the scar on his arm and his friends threatened to remove the coat, but he would give them one stern look that made them quiver and shrunk in fear. Most of his days were busy and on a less busy day all the past life deeds came back to his mind and filled him with anger that made him cry like a small child, and constantly his secretary would ask “what happened?”
Today Mr. Man is walking in the same street he lived once, before a miracle happened and landed him in an office. Many years have passed since then and like any other person Mr. Man has tried to forget his past especially that painful past. He has constantly avoided this street. At least for now you know why, do you? This was his hell which tortured him and made him realize the other side of life, the bitter side, as bitter as the afflictions of hell.
Today the street is busy and everybody is making ‘ends meet’, it is hot, noisy and the smell of a mixture of everything hits ones nose and with one last effort you sneeze your lungs out. Mr. Man was among the well dressed people to pass that street today, he was on foot and he had come on ‘official duty’ if to say.
The path is crowded and most people are on foot. Allow me to describe the street please, will you? Let’s call it street X, street X is sandwiched by a long line of buildings on each side and outside each line of buildings there is a long corridor. Mr. Man is using the long corridor on the left side of the street. Vehicles using this street are moving up while others moving down I am not a good illustrator, but at least you have an idea, Good.
In his ups and downs, he meets this person, the person recognizes him, gives him one envy look and at the top of his voice starts shouting, “look at this man, he was a beggar here, poor and useless he was, now that he thinks he is rich, he comes here to laugh at us, look at him only his clothes make him look better but inside him, he is poor, dirty, isolated…” the man rattled on and on. Mr. Man like if had a wound pricked could not hold himself, the pain he harbored in his heart now laid bare could not carry it any more, he felt his head spin and passed out…
Our past should remain in the past and no one should carry it to our present. Everyone should learn to leave the past in the past especially the painful past. When we revive the bad past of others, we torture them and they pass out, think of it if it were you, let the bad past remain in the books of history. Bad history brings no happiness to any one.
We all came to agree that in life we have to compete, fight hard for the resources available, it is survival for the fittest; it does not call only for the strong and the outwardly well-built bodies that we use to fight it out in the battle of life; of life and death. It calls for reasoning, intelligence and many more elements that go beyond our physical strength; it is the mental strength.
All are prompted and urged to fight it out, when the fight is too hard some withdraw and call it ‘life’ others struggle and call it ‘heaven’ made down on earth, yet the ‘life’ callers go to the ‘heaven’ callers for a piece of their heaven. The ’heaven’ callers not to show their kindness and hide their survival for the fittest tactics, order around the ‘life’ callers to perform those tasks that will make the ‘heaven’ callers make a more heaven down here, where? The earth, the home of struggle which never ceases to amaze the ‘life’ callers, this earth was made to be hot, thirsty and hungry? But like men and women of wisdom, they made it cool, water full and a fruitful life and they said “That was a different thing.”
The guy was my friend and like soldiers in the battle field, we both were eager to fight it out, this was a life and death fight, we were fighting to survive and like soldiers we had our own tactics to fight this one common enemy which was our survival. We both got weary after a few minutes of fighting and we fell asleep, we slept that sleep that was not peaceful, a wake-and-sleep type of sleep after a few seconds of sleeping. We however forgot our survival enemy was running away for fear of us and our survival was running low. We would no longer continue sleeping and like fierce, angry and hungry lions we set off to get our survival enemy who was going away because that was the fighting technique.
Our survival enemy is like a big piece of bread and was meant to be picked and put in a sack full that will sustain our lives, surviving was the reason of the name and anyone who was unable to fill the sack then lost their survival. A friend and a friend we went after the survival bread, each of us used their own tactic to reach the survival bread faster, but unfortunately my friend lost the race because, “That was not a different thing.” I mean my friend copied and pasted.
“And that was life.” I gave a deep sigh, it was indeed life. When we are in the race of survival, no one needs to look at the person next to them, how he/she runs is none of your business, both you and me put forward our best foot needless to say of the pain we undergo while struggling to reach our survival, our destiny, our set goals and much more in life. Because nothing is as depressing as looking at what people do to reach your set goals.
Everyone and everybody has his/her own piece of the cake in life, it is all about toiling and perfecting what we were created to do and use it to build harmony, love, peace and a heaven. Everyone loves to look around for any idea left out to work on to survive, but then nothing is as bad as looking at what others do and instead of developing a new tactic, we imitate. Everybody does a different thing to get a different result and to create wide and varied elements to make a cool, water full and fruitful earth.
I did not say do what other people do but I said do the same thing but in a different way. Better and much better should you do a different thing. When we both do the same thing with the same formula we do not make a difference in life. Do something that everybody could say, “That was a different thing…”
A disclaimer, this is my testimony of the amazing works of Jesus in my life.
He has given me peace which I cannot explain, there were times storms of life would hit me and would almost make me lose balance and grip of my life, but in the midst of all that I still found peace to rise above that.
He has taught me to love people, not only those who love me but at most to those who hurt me so bad. I still smile and continue to smile as I share the love through the smile.You deserve to smile
He has taught me forgiveness, I remember when the feeling of anger rose and I said to myself, “I won’t forgive Him; in fact He’s the one who hurt me.” He came to me and whispered, “so much I forgave your sins, so much you must forgive others too.”
He taught me humility. When I would feel justified to get what I thought was my right, he taught me to humble myself because He said to me in due time he will exalt me.
So much He has done this man Jesus and he continues doing. What more is impossible to Him?
