ITS a privilege sharing this with you and I trust you are already blessed by reading through these.
In this present times and seasons in which everything around us is fashioned out to breath impossibilities,dogmatic mentalities ,and often times doctrinal beliefs which have been misinterpreted and mis-appropriated has been of adverse effect to the body of christ at large.
Everyone is just in the business of let’s do it the way it should be,not considering the way God wants it to be.So many believers have so timed up their minds on certain issues in which they’ve given God the deadline to issues around them and if the needs are not met,they get frustrated.So many have gotten frustrated with the way God handles their life omitting the fact that;
Romans 4:17 says; “(As it is written,I have made thee a father of many nations)before him who believed ,even God,who quickeneth the dead ,and calleth those things which be not as though they were..
” God will not tell you what is possible but the impossible because its beyond your carrying capacity ,so you have no option than to rely on him for strength to go through “..
Its evident that many times a Christian claims that ” With God ,nothing is impossible”..but yet still finds his or herself doubting the course of nature of things if it is God involved.
The scripture says ;Romans 10:10-11
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness ;and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed..
Often times many has forgotten the fact that the heart is not only a pumping organ but also the faith organ. So many has damaged their heart with doubt,unbelief,anxiety,looking at the way the ark of God won’t fall down,many are busy caculating how water will turn to wine in their own case,how a woman with the issue of blood for 12years got healed;how a 38year old lame man walk in just a split second?How Lazarus rose up from the dead after 3days and so on..The question how?keeps ringing in the heart of man.But there’s something to quench the fire of this question “The heart”..
Wanting more of God ,keeps you from being constantly hurt because your heart is been filled with the knowledge of God.The disciples of Jesus come what may ,dint fail to ask Jesus how, reasons why some incidents happened and why they can’t control it and they all got their answers from rabbi(Jesus the great teacher).
Proverbs 4:23 says;
” Keep thy heart with all dilligence;for out of it comes the issues of life”..
The word KEEP implies that you should endeavour all your knowledge about God are kept safe in you beyond any intimidation;you keep nurturing it until it grows wide into every areas of your life.
On the Christian lane,you got to deal with some life issues which are antagonists against your knowledge of God. Some situations comes to test the tenacity of your faith which will pass through the heart.Any situation that can overcome your heart,has overcomed you.
So its a great task to KEEP the heart …….
Living among cruel impossibilities,seeing things the way they happen over and over again dulls your faith.
Any new thing comes from the heart ,the way you look at things will change when God has revealed just a perspective of himself to you and keep wanting more.
That’s why you will see an individual living in a pitiable condition and still says”God is Faithful and just!..This ain’t the words of the natural mind but of the spirit…
Breathing unhappily under the last chocking cups of cassava flakes and groundnut in the house after the days arduous task,and still affirming that “My God shall supply all my needs according to his riches in glory through Christ Jesus”.. This only come from a guarded heart because many imposters would come to portray to him that God is poor and wicked.
A brother boarded a taxi from the bus station.Along the way,he found out that he had forgotten his phone at home which he ought to use for various business transactions at the site of his contract payment.This was so hard for the brother because he dint want to go back home because of the stipulated time given to him by the company .
But alas!there was no way he could go without the phone because all the descriptions ,phone contacts,quotations ,everthing were there on the phone..He alighted from the taxi and went back home even though he was half way the journey..He got home and took the phone and left for the site again.This moment ,the stipulated time to meet the company supervisors has elapsed.He dint allow his heart to get scared of loosing this big time opportunity all because of his negligient attitude towards his phone.Instead he kept the pace .
On getting there,he dint meet anyone at the site of transaction..hmmm…pause and think
What may be going through your mind if you were to be in that situation at that point ???????
This brother,stood there and did the impossible..
He acted out the site transaction by doing a 3 in 1 drama,.transacting ,negotiating with himself as if the officials were present..Funny though …
He was so lost in this act that he dint notice people had gathered watching him as if he had ran mad.The only thing that woke him up was a sudden tap on his shoulder and he looked back and lo and behold it was the officials for the transaction.
The officials went to a nearby restaurant to get something to eat while waiting for this brother and had forgotten that the time they gave for the appointment has elapsed.So they quickly hurried back to the site to see if the brother had not gone because of the fear of loosing their jobs when their boss gets to know .Surprisingly to them, here is the brother displaying the impossible…The transaction was sucessful and life went on.
If you are the brother would your heart fail you at that point?
Would you say God is faithful or not?…
Just as the disciples said “lord increase our faith”… You can do the same..
God bless you
