Be Strong.

Ephesians 6:10

We need strength to survive in this world, which means we have to be strong!
God wants us to be strong in Him.
This means we should be confident in God, trusting always in Him irrespective of what things look like around us. 1 Chronicles 16:11
To be strong is to be like Abraham.
Abraham was a man who hoped against hope when there was no physical reason to hope.
Romans 4:18
That is strength! This is an example of being strong.

Being consistent in prayer, praying in season and out of is a form of strength. Ephesians 6:18
You need to be strong to prevail against the enemy and what the world will throw at you.
The major type of strength you will require is spiritual strength. Ephesians 3:16
The Apostle Paul talks about strength in our inner man.
Strength in the inner man is strength that is spiritual.
It is God given spiritual strength.
It is spiritual strength that's been built up as a result of spiritual growth.

Many things are similar about the physical and spiritual dimensions.
God wants us strong spiritually. As you grow spiritually you develop spiritual strength.
Your physical strength is important and it matters to God and should matter to you. But it's your spiritual strength that will benefit you more. 1 Timothy 4:8
Godliness brings spiritual strength.
Holiness brings spiritual strength.
There is a grace for spiritual strength. 2 Corinthians 12:9

You need spiritual strength to take on the enemy. Mark 3:27
God wants you to be a 'spiritual strong man'.
You should be a 'spiritual strong man' who is depopulating the Kingdom of darkness and taking back what the enemy has stolen.
This doesn't happen without a fight.

Satan is a skilled fighter who has many more experiences in warfare above human beings.
You will need spiritual strength to face him, stand toe to toe with him and defeat him.
You can defeat the enemy.
The greater one lives within you. 1 John 4:4
You need spiritual strength to withstand the storms of life.
Endurance is an aspect of spiritual strength. 2 Timothy 2:3
We win by endurance.

See More, Have More.

Genesis 13:15

God had a great inheritance for Abraham but Abraham had to see it first.
God has more for you than what you have right now.
In God there is always more. 2 Kings 6:16

There is more of His anointing, His power, His grace, His faith, His strength,, His dreams and revelations available to His children.
In 2017, there is more for you in God so don't settle for less.
You also have a responsibility to  to do certain things to receive your 'more' from the Lord.
John 2:5

One of the things we need to know and do to receive our 'more' from the Lord is to see better.
Our ability to see better goes a long way.
Sight matters.
What you don't see, you cannot benefit from.

By sight I am not referring purely to physical sight but our vision, our imagination and the eyes of our understanding. Ephesians 1:18
What we see is what we get.
You need to see more to get more.
What you cannot see you may never have.

As God had more for Abraham, He has more for you.
God had more in store for Joseph than his past and present experience of being in Potiphar's house.
God had the palace in mind for Joseph, God had rulership in store for Joseph. Genesis 41:14-40
God has more in store for you and He wants you to see it!
God had more in store for David than being a shepherd boy. 2 Samuel 7:8
God had more in store for Peter, and Andrew than being fisher men. Matthew 4:19

God in His faithfulness helps you to see what He has for you.
It is a spiritual law that you have to see it before you possess it.
God helped Abraham to 'see' by showing Him the stars. Genesis 15:5
God helped Joseph to 'see' by giving him dreams that are prophetic and apply to his destiny.
Genesis 37:2-11
God helped Jacob build his own business by giving him a dream that revealed the strategy to build his own business while he was working with his uncle Laban.

It is not everyone who has eyes that see right.
God is willing to reveal to you what you must know.
God is willing to show you what you need to see.
What you hear you will meditate and imagine upon.
What you hear also matters this is why God speaks to us.

How does God help us see right?
1) By His Word: Gods Word is likened to light. Light helps us see right. Psalm 119:105
God's Word shows us who we are and what we can have.

2) By His Holy Spirit: God's Spirit helps us 'see' spiritually.
John 16:15
Gods Spirit speaks to us, reveals to us, and shows us things!

3) By Dreams and Visions: Dreams and visions are part of the language of the Holy Spirit.
God can give you visions and dreams about who you are and what you can have.
Genesis 46:2
Isaiah 6:1-8
Ezekiel 1:4-14

4) By opening the eyes of our understanding: Ephesians 1:18
God is the one who makes us understand what we need to understand.
When the eyes of our understanding is opened, we 'see' well and know what we need to know.

5) The use of our imagination: Colossians 3:2
Your imagination is from your mind.
Our imaginations are powerful!
The purpose of our imagination is not for thinking up evil pictures in our minds or plotting evil.
Our imagination has been given to us for our good.
Thinking pictures of good and blessing.

Prayer: A Key to Overcoming Wickedness.

1 John 5:19

There is no denying it, wickedness exists.
The Bible shows us wicked spirits are real and wicked human beings are on earth.
It is Satan who puts a wicked nature in people.
There are wicked people who have sold out deliberately to the devil. We have wicked people who don't like God's anointed or anything that has to do with the move or things of God.
Psalm 2:1-4

The chief architect of wickedness is Satan. Ephesians 6:16
Satan has a team of wicked spirits which are demons and fallen angels who work with him as a team. Ephesians 6:12
They work in unity to achieve Satan's mandate of stealing, killing and destroying. John 10:10

In today's world the effects of Satan and his team can be seen all around us.
Voodoo, Satan worship, false religion, deceptive teachings, family hatred, uncontrolled anger, evil schemes, false prophets and teachers, dream attacks, nightmares are all works of the enemy.

Despite the wickedness in this world and Satan's control, God makes a way of escape for His own.
1 Corinthians 10:13
In spite of the evil in this world God has given power and authority to His children to live above it and overcome it. Luke 10:19
That power is the power of the Holy Spirit with you.
The power and the Spirit comes through prayer. Acts 2:1,2

Your 6 advantages over Satan:
1) The name of Jesus Christ. Philippians 2:10
2) The blood of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:11
3) The Word of God. Matthew 4:4,7,10
4) The grace of God. 2 Corinthians 12:9
5) Your salvation. Romans 10:9,10
6) Your confession. Psalm 81:10

Anointed For A Purpose.

1 John 2:27
Isaiah 10:27
Proverbs 4:18

There is something you are anointed for.
There is something you are able to do better than other people who may be doing the same thing.
It is not everything God wants you to do.
It is not every single thing you will succeed at significantly.
But there are somethings you will succeed at significantly because you are graced and anointed by God for those things.

Imagine King David trying by all means to be a physician/doctor?
Imagine Gideon the judge trying to be a writer by all means or Moses the leader prophet trying to be a fisherman by force?
None of them would succeed!

God anoints you for a purpose.
The purpose of the anointing is to help you function in the office and assignment God has given to you.
The anointing helps you succeed.
The anointing is for your success.
The anointing takes you forward in life.
The anointing teaches you what you need to know in life.
The anointing makes life easier for you.
The anointing helps you overcome enemies and problems.
The anointing is your personal mentor.
You can't talk about the anointing and not talk about the Holy Spirit.
The anointing is how the Holy Spirit works through you.
The anointing brings recognition and visibility.
The anointing is an evidence God is with you.
The anointing brings release and freedom.

The working of the Holy Spirit through you is what we call the anointing.
The anointing brings divine direction.
The Holy Spirit in you works and agrees with the blood of Jesus! 1 John 5:8

Parenting, a great responsibility.

As I woke up in the early hours of this morning I felt a sudden flow of inspiration.
So I got off my bed, reached for my laptop and headed to the sitting room to type out these words before I lose them.
Besides it's been a while I have put up an article on this blog, I have been away for so long from the readers who come to this blog to read the articles on it.
I am so sorry.

As a parent I ponder from time to time about the type of parent I am or that I am becoming.
I feel this is a necessary thing to do for we are either getting better or worse in life, so self appraisals are necessary for every one.
Parenting has more to it than we see or understand from an outward perspective.

A lovely family is easily admired, seeing parents who dote on their children and have great relationships with them is a wonderful thing but what we do not see is the sacrifice that has gone into creating the relationship between those parents and children.
I use the word sacrifice because there is a lot parents do and give up to make things work between them and their children. To succeed at anything in a significant way you will have to sacrifice and parenting is no exception.
It is a huge responsibility!

Anything we don't invest our time in, give attention to, regard or respect will eventually move away from us. Whether it's friends, our pets, our spouses, our children, even God.
Relationships can break down!
It takes wisdom to create the right kind of relationship with people, that includes our children.
I find some parents assume their children will naturally or automatically have cordial relationships with them because they are the parent but it doesn't always work that way.
The getting along of parents and children has to be cultivated and nurtured just like any other relationship.

Perhaps it's the hardwork and sacrifice good parents put into raising their children that makes them expect so much from them sometimes.This is where finding the balance comes in.

We should hope for and expect good things from our children but we might be disappointed to expect too much from them.
They are human after all.
At times, parents raise the bar so high for their children without setting a standard for themselves.
To a large degree our children are a reflection of ourselves.
Though they are different from us and have their own uniqueness, they are a reflection of the values we taught and showed them, the lifestyle they see us live, they words we communicated to them, the home we created for them, and the love we showed them.
They reflect us in many respects.

We shouldn't expect from them what we have not taught them.
A father who is disappointed his son is not a financial success should ask himself if he ever taught his son how to make money.
Which viable businesses did you expose your daughters to?
Which lessons did you share with your son about legitimate business, investing and the world we live in?
Where are our children meant to learn these things from?
Some over protective parents have even hindered their children from going forward by keeping them away from jobs, business attempts and following their ideas all because they don't want their children to get hurt.
Some despiseful parents  break the confidence and self esteem of their children without knowing, only to turn around and accuse the children of not making the most of their lives or opportunities.
Truly, parenting is a balancing act.

Well done to the parents who pay school fees and have made an effort to get their children good education.

However our educational system doesn't teach  young ladies or men what to expect outside the four walls of a school or classroom.
We are taught to add, subtract, multiply, divide, how to write and perhaps speak good English.
We are 'processed' through our schools and institutions of higher learning to follow a certain pattern, be a certain way, think in certain ways and work for someone or some organization for the rest of our lives.

It is the gifted few who have a natural and perhaps innate flair for entrepreneurship and business who break out of the box or convert what they have learn't into some form of enterprise.
Many young people leave school to face the dagger of reality in a tough and ruthless world without having proper mentorship from the parents who unfortunately may not know better themselves.
Some children pass through the educational system abused, scarred, bullied and trampled upon without having the kind of parents they can confide in.

A father who thinks his son is not romantic or doesn't know how to relate with his wife or the opposite sex should ask himself if he ever had any 'man talk' with his son while his son was growing up. More importantly, how was he treating his sons mother and how does that father treat women himself?
It's vice versa with mothers and daughters, fathers and daughters and mothers and sons.
Parenting is no joke!
It requires a combination of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, foresight and in my opinion exposure.
You can't teach your child what you are not exposed to. You can't share what you don't know, and you can't give what you don't have.

Very importantly we owe it to our children to be whole.
If it is not well with us it rubs off on our children in some form or the other.
We should fix ourselves, even if it is for the sake of our children, the generation after us.
If we are not whole, maybe we shouldn't expect it from our children?
Fortunately our wellness and wholeness is part of what God takes care of. Thank you Jesus!
