My soul grieves for a game of soccer. Why am I at ease at the game of sin and injustice?
There is a place within the soul where mortals see what many cannot see, and they press on in the presence of the immortal one, every day, full of grieve and compassion, that He will light up a candle in that darkness and take away pain
Why am I at ease in Zion?
Why my soul
Why do you worry about a game of soccer and you are at ease, drinking and giving in of marriage
Like the days of Noah
There is a place I want to live
Where the mundane will not be inside my backpack
Help me O’ Lord
To die to the pulling of this world
To a world which is not tied up to my eternal purpose
”Just as we so matter to God, Our God will matter again to His Church, and the world shall flow into the holy mount of the Lord and journey with us in our uprise.”
”A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26 AMPC
A NEW HEART | A new heart, free from the bondage of this carnal impulses of a carnal world. A new spirit that set the seat of our being on fire, that nothing else will matter anymore, but God alone.
As I write this post, I sense the heavens are ready, through the portals of Holy Spirit, to release unusual grace upon the universe. Sons and daughters of God shall be unleashed from the valleys of dry bones, to execute the will of the Father on earth. An army of believers whose heart and spirit are tired of the consummation of religion, and a mundane civilization devoid of the authentic realities of the Kingdom. Such men and women has been wrestling in the presence of the Father for so long, holding the horn of the altar with such an incredible desire to encounter the infinite possibilities of a righteous God, and the spiritual mysteries of His operations.
GOD MATTERS | Such men and women will make God matter in their everyday life. Such an army will die to the flesh and the world will not be worthy in their eyes anymore. Neither will they be worthy in the eyes of the world, because of their operations in the spirit. They will understand the spiritual mystery of the indwelling presence of God in their heart, and their authority and power within the mandate of the King of Kings, to capture the world for Jesus.
KINGDOM INVESTORS | Let us continue to yield ourselves completely to Him in prayer, holiness, the fear of the Lord, and ascend in the dimension of spiritual enlightenment in the word. Our sacrifices to his will, and surrendering of ours to Him is the truest path to circumcising our stony hearts [ The kind of heart which is not sensitive to his word and drifts away every day, chasing after what does not matter]
Have you allowed yourself to pause for a minute, considering all the happenings around us? Such questions like; ”why am I not on fire for Jesus? should burn inside our hearts.” ”Does God really matters to me?” ”How do I become an agent of love and power in the Kingdom of Christ?”
”What on earth is this boredom, that I have zero desire to stay in the secret place of God, basking in the depths of who He is, what His plans are, and my place within His agenda?” ”Why am I so anxious about what I will eat, what I will wear, how do I pay my rent, when do I get a new toy, a new this and a new that, and all the unnecessary competitions that wage war within our flesh?”
“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.” Matthew 6:33 AMPC
JESUS IS LORD | If such desires and ambitions [ things that are above, heavenly inclined ] are not at the forefronts of our occupation then we have to ask ourselves again if Jesus is really our Lord, and if he really matters to us at all. My heart burns with one desire; ”to seek all that God has to offer.” I know if I find Him and his supernatural ways of doing things, all the other things I could have occupied my mind with will be bestowed on me through the operation of grace.
I am persuaded, this is the surest path to discovering the dominion mandate of God. This is how we soar on this side of life; aiming at, and striving after His perfect ways of DOING and BEING right.
MERE MEN | Satan is cunning enough to have distracted a lot of believers; our hearts and spirit are weighed down by the boulders of earthly longings and grandeur ambitions which is always before us, and hanging within our souls, each day. Great ambitions which are not tied to the eternal purpose of Christ, but to appeal our own sense of pride. Our hearts are numb to the things of God, and our spirit is governed by the spirit of this mammon. Unfortunately, we have become like mere men
EMERGENCE | Don’t log out, my friend. I have some good news for His bride; ”Just as we so matter to God, Our God will matter again to His Church and the world shall flow into the holy mount of the Lord, and she will journey with us in our uprise” and she will say; ”teach us the WAYS of the Lord.” ”Show us the path to peace.” ”Give us what you have because nothing satisfies in our kind of civilization, except your God, your truth.” hallelujah
There is a coming revival of hearts and spirit towards the ways of Jesus, and mere men shall rise with deep insights, and intimacy with the Holy Ghost; expressing a dimension of God the world has never experienced before. Do you want to be a part of the ARMY?
Dear, Father God
You’re the King of Kings
A Righteous judge over all spirits
I am so thankful to you, for the gift of life
I am sincerely sorry,
For so long I’ve been regulated by the
carnal invitations and temptations
Of this dark world, which has
produced gross weakness
My heart is dull, my spirit is numb
I am not happy, I am not free, I lack real zeal
I lack sincere affections for your presence
I am bereft of real happiness and real freedom,
and the fluidity to be consumed with all that
matters to you.
Abba, forgive me from boredom drunkness
I am intoxicated in the world. The occupation of
worldly appraisals and passions have filled my belly.
This world is seductively my idol, and I’m cold
And passive to anything spiritual
I pray, set my heart free, like a bird, and
make it ablaze like moonlight beauty, for
your own glory.
I want to be loose from an invisible chain of Satan
When humanity drifts away from the very presence he was created to enjoy an intimate relationship with his source of reality, he wanders in restlessness.
“So Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod [wandering], east of Eden.” Genesis 4:16 AMPC
Will COVID-19 draw us back to the Eden of God presence? A perfect paradise, where the spirit of regenerated men dances in the harmonic melodies of the whispers of a loving Father. I sense this deep beckoning in the spirit realm. An invitation of the Spirit of the creator for mankind to return to the original place of sacred communion with the Father. It is in this realm of intimacy you and I find authentic power and strength to live the quality life.
Cain represents a generation that wanders away from the perfect plan, the perfect place, and the perfect presence in Elohim, devoid of his glory. In God’s ultimate plan we were to be a people of His presence for the sheer purpose of reproducing the nature of God for His glory, in all of our endeavours. In His presence is the fullness of joy, and at his right hand of administration, we find eternal pleasures to overrule the dictates of the kingdom of darkness.
The multifaceted presence of the Lord can be actualized in our lives today, through a deep longing for the old pathway of staying consistently and intimately in the presence of God through heartfelt prayers and partnership with the Holy Spirit, else we wander perpetually in fear and despair, far away from where rare peace is supplied unabated.
There is a mystical river which flows from God’s presence and we find deep satisfaction within our souls when we are near, our cups are drawn in, drinking to our fill. Regardless of the inconsistencies around us our cups shall not run dry. The psalmist speaks about this river…
“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].” Psalm 46:4-5 AMPC
Today, your Heavenly Father is inviting you and I to journey back to the streams of the spiritual river of his presence, the secret place of God, to rededicate ourselves through the spiritual medium of prayer, and fellowship in the spirit. The world has nothing to offer us. This pandemic has proven to us that all of the little idols we have depended on over the years were an illusion, but the reality is found only in the time we invest in His presence.
The multifaceted presence of God when encountered has the potency of raising ordinary men and women to become an end-time army of God who will exercise dominion and power over the rule of Satan. Do you want to become a true expression of the mystery of the vast possibilities of God in this life, in the midst of the odds? Let’s humbly pray to the Lord 👇🏾 today in the expectation that he will revive our spirits so we can return to him, draped with passion ❤️
Dear Father God,
I have wandered far from you
My heart is empty, my mind is
Filled with earthy pleasures, and I
Have no desire in me to seek you
or to know you intimately as my Lord
I have slipped far away from you
but I trust you are mighty to save when we call
From the deepest depths of our wanderings
You’re my salvation, Lord Jesus. I sincerely
ask you to save me from myself:
Help me mortify my flesh, and I will die completely from the pleasures of this life.
I want to be captivated by your presence
Yes, I want to be completely yours;
And my entire existence with you, and you alone
Investing my time and my energies
By the virtue of the Holy Spirit Set my soul free from the chains of Of a prayer-lessness life, to be a lover of all you have to offer
I rededicate my life to you
I rededicate my heart for prayer
I dedicate my heart for revelation
I dedicate my time for the word
I want to be a deposit of heaven
I want to become a pursuer of your
Presence, and a true expression of
Your power and dominion on this side of life, so help me Lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray.
I say it again; never try to impress anyone, not even God”. God breathes upon us with complete satisfaction. His desire is to see our hearts being impressed upon by His boundless love.
You have probably see it in your own personal life or from the lives of other believers or Christians, who love to impress others with certain actions, so they can be affirmed. We are creatures who dearly love to see others affirm our uniqueness. Through this form of weakness, we always or sometimes try to convince others through all forms of impressions. We love to create the impression that we are the top dog of the company, by applying all manner of office politics, just to please some people or the boss. Do you sometimes feels the weight of being a people’s pleaser? Do you feel the guilt of being an approval addict? Do you sometimes feels you will be lonely if you say it just as it is, to your one and only good friend? Don’t worry my friend; you are not alone in this battle. There are millions of people in our world today, who are suffering from this epidemic. You can be set free, my friend! What I have personally learn through my personal journeys is that; “trying to impress people takes you out of your natural self; automatically, you become fake and bound with negative ties”.
As a Christian and a leader, it is my holy duty to love people irrespective of their behavior and attitude. In the same margin, I also face the temptation which pounce on me to kick my behind out of my natural zone, so to please certain class of people, in order that I might not lose them or anger them, one way or the other. Friend the totality of life is this; “you cannot please people no matter what you do’. You just have to stay with the truth and let the truth have its own free course. This may sound simple and cool, but it takes a courageous man to say “I cannot please all men, regardless..”.
Do we have to impress God? This is where most believers fail. Let this truth sink into your heart..”God does not want you to impress Him with nothing”. The Christian life is not a life of religious efforts and self-righteousness acts to convince God. It is rather the life of Christ flowing through the believer, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our style and methods of giving, prayer and all manner of Christian rituals performed just to make God feel Good about us, are all clanging cymbals. My friend, allow God to impress your heart with the fullness of His manifold grace and love. As you behold Him, singing over your life with contentment, and eternal approval of your standing with HIM, your life will effortlessly birth forth what pleases Him.
By rebirth, you have become a beloved and dearly accepted child to the king. I end by giving you one of my favorite scriptures in the Bible. I find true satisfaction in my natural self, knowing I don’t have to do too much to impress God, but I do much because He has impressed me with His love, like a father will impress on his child with his love and the child begins to excel and bear much fruit, from the flow of his fathers love. God shouts and breathe over you with love. Which means you matter to Him, just as you are in Him, through grace.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NET Bible) 17 The Lord your God is in your midst; he is a warrior who can deliver. He takes great delight in you; he renews you by his love; he shouts for joy over you.
The kind of life which says, “if I don’t do much for God and meet all the standards of the law, I will not please Him” This kind of believer is ignorant of the fact that before we ever did anything for God, we were a delight through the cross. God takes great delight in you my good friend. If i have to shout this from the roof top or use megaphone to sound this precious truth into your ears, I will do it all day till you say “yes i believe, I am a delight of God”. Remember I did not say, our lives should not please God! Our lives should not please God on the basis of our human efforts to convince Him. I know you probably know this scripture in the book of Romans which says when we were yet sinners… Okay, let the Bible speak for itself so that every doubt settles in your mind. God was not angry with you, being an unbeliever. He did loved you but you couldn’t enjoy His love because the gospel light has not yet shine in your heart. Friend we were blind and ignorant to a love granted to us freely through Christ.
The Bible say; Romans 5:7-8 (TLB)7 Even if we were good, we really wouldn’t expect anyone to die for us, though, of course, that might be barely possible. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Did you see that. God showed His great love for us by sending Christ Jesus. I don’t think there is anything on this earth or in the world to come that can negate the great love of God towards you. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you less or more. He just love you. That is His nature. God is love and in His perfect love, all fears of life, vamoosed. Let Him impress you with How much He loves you and see you life transformed by His great love. Much love and grace to you. Thanks for reading and sharing the grace gospel to friends and other believers.
