Jesus. God Loves Bummyla.

English: 4 days of Evangelism Training in Sout...

No More Fear!

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Fear is the same but focuses on the negative, nothing happened but I am afraid it is going to happen. Today I speak over you a sound mind, one that focuses on the positive and not fear. Go be a winner, In Christ Jesus, Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Be Strong and Very Courageous

Good Morning.

I am once again very excited. I am excited about what God is doing in this season in the lives of His people and within the body.

I am excited because our God reigns supreme. He is a God that is concerned about His children and He is a God who does not sit afar off from us off but is a very active influence within our lives and those connected.

I am excited because He is truly living and Jesus lives and reigns with Him in the heavenly’s and He intercedes on my behalf and I am excited that the Holy Spirit has come to teach us all things and guide us into all truth.

I am excited because the same spirit that dwells in me has come directly from my Father and that we all have been made in His likeness.

I am thrilled because Jesus rose with all power in His hands.

I am thrilled that all his thoughts towards us are good and none of evil.

I am thrilled that we serve a Mighty God; that is not like man that He should lie and none of His words that go forth return to Him void. All of the promises of God are “Yea and Amen”.  

He is ever-present and very real to me.

Please, never doubt the validity of our Great God.

I mean before I even really knew who God was before I came into the understanding of who Jesus Christ was and what He did and what He will do; I had dreams of  Him coming back  .. of His return.

I would have these dreams in great and full detail that I still remember till this day. He showed Himself to me at a young age and I always walked around anticipating His return for His own.

So, a while ago I found myself doubting God’s existence. Even after hearing and knowing God had promises for my life, after accepting Jesus Christ into my heart, baptised and Holy Ghost filled … LOL I still doubted.

And it came to me one day … that all those dreams I had of Jesus Christ returning and being able to line them up almost to a “T” with the word and then thinking back to how I thought getting into heaven was just a simple as saying “please” and “thank you” at the correct time and doing that “one good deed a day” thing.

How could I dream of something I know nothing about and with accuracy. It was not of my own doing but Gods.

I realized at that moment that His hand was upon my life then and still is now … even the more. And as His hand was and is upon my life … His hand is upon your life.

This is totally not what I had in mind for this post … LOL … but its all good. So just to line this up with my title … I will say to all of you whether you have been in this walk for years or for those who may have just begun.

Be Strong and Very Courageous, follow the spirit of God and go where ever He leads you. Know that He will never lead you into temptation and evil, for every good thing comes from God. Serve Him diligently and stay humble.

… and my daughter favorite scripture when she was younger

“Obedience is better than Sacrifice”

Also know that the perfect work He has begun in you .. .He will complete until the return of Jesus Christ.

He is faithful and He will do it.

All He requires of us is to just …

BELIEVE

.. and if any of us lacks wisdom we can go to Him who freely gives.

God Bless.

 


Another Daily Insipiration …

Another daily inspiration sent to me today!

Enjoy!

 

Triumphant Life 

“Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the Earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before God with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:1,2 

Daily Express:

 Make a commitment with God to get out of your shell others need you, and want, what you have to offer.

 Complete Message: 

C. S. Lewis once said, “The great thing is to be found at one’s post as a child of God, living each day as if it were our last, but planning as though our world might last  1000 years.”

 

Some of the greatest people that I have ever known used to be shrinking violets. Overlooked by others, and invisible, they kept to themselves, and wondered why others didn’t treat them better. They had overcome these tendencies and they did. 

These people had to force themselves to get out of their shell. This is not an easy thing to do ,removing one’s self from their comfort zone. But their comfort zone can often be a very lonely, isolated place. 

People need us, people want to like us but we have to be a friend first – before we can expect friends. 

Are you living a life triumphant that God has promised can be yours?

Or are you a spiritual shrinking violet?

 

As you ponder that question, consider this: God does not intend for you to live a life that is merely mediocre.

And God doesn’t want you to hide the light God has placed within you.

 

God wants you to “Let your light so shine before humans, that they may see your good works and glorify your God in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

 In short, God wants you to live a triumphant life so that others might know what it means to be a child of God.

 Self-isolation is a formed habit, just as putting oneself “out there” is also a formed habit.

The better life is found in the latter. If you want success in this world it is mostly found in the latter.

People must discover you, they have to find you, to know that you are there.

 I have had to overcome my shyness. People think that I’m a natural extrovert, but that is not true, it has been something that I have worked hard on with God’s daily help. If I can do it, anyone can do it. 

Daily life should be a triumphant celebration. Daily life should be an exercise of smiling and laughing with others in pure spiritual joy. Daily life should be a continual sharing with others. Daily life should reflect your thanksgiving and praise continually. 

Join the celebration today. Live in a way that you, and others, can see God’s light coming through you, so that they too may join the celebration.

 

POSITIVE DAILY PRAYER:

Dear God, I come to You today with a different type of prayer.

Please help me to get out of my shell.

Help me to reflect to others kindness, a loving nature, and accessibility.

Help me to no longer place invisible blocks of receptivity around me.

I pray that others can always reach my friendliness.

I pray for new friends.

I am willing to become a friend first.

I am willing to reach out.

With Your help I no longer place invisible barricades and barriers around myself.

I pray for courage, and I pray for the continual will, on a daily basis, to become a people person.

I pray that I’m touchable, reachable, communicative, and friendly – always.

In Jesus Christ’s name Amen

 

POSITIVE DAILY AFFIRMATION: I’m touchable, reachable, communicative, and friendly.

 

POSITIVE DAILY QUOTE: “Whatever the need, whatever the goal, turn within in prayer to the power of God.”   Christopher Ian Chenoweth


Daily Inspiration ..

This was sent to me by a co-worker. I enjoyed and thought I would pass it on. That quote is complete random. .. Just realized that.  

God Bless

“Arguing with a fool proves there are two”

Today is when

Today is when your life is happening. Now is when life’s opportunities are yours.

Within you is a dream, a longing, a purpose, a desire to experience life’s richness in your own unique way. Surrounding you is a universe filled with energy and abundance, and possibilities.

Now is when you have the opportunity to connect your most treasured dreams with that abundance, and to bring them to life. Focused, purposeful, inspired action is how you can most effectively do so.

On this day, in this moment, the possibilities are more than just intellectual curiosities. Right now, the possibilities are real.

Today you can choose, you can take action, you can make a difference and you can make real, satisfying, lasting progress. Today you have the priceless opportunity to live your life as you envision it.

The best life you can imagine is today within your grasp. So go beyond mere imagining, and live each moment in the direction of the very best you know life can be.

 


Oh, Before I go …

Well, the day in the office is just about over for me. I am preparing myself for another weekend. I guess?

Just real quick … choose your friends wisely. Watch their habits and study their character. If they do shady things to other people who they claim to be their friend … then more than likely they do it to you.

And if for some odd reason they are really honest to you and not the other then .. they need to stop lying to that other person and they need to let them go LMBO.

Alright, those are my words of wisdom for the evening. I pray that you all have a wonderful, safe and blessed weekend.

Pray hard, worship hard, fight hard and love harder for love covers a multitude of sins.

And real quick I want to say Welcome to all of my New Followers! I am glad you are “here” with me … please feel free to comment and I am always up for good meaningful conversation.

If you can’t take anything edifying, if you cannot learn from it, if it leaves you drained and empty and feeling vexed and bothered then leave it exactly where it is.

Oh and don’t take advice from lazy people.

Have a Blessed Weekend …

and

Happy Blogging


Is it in You?

So, I know you all read about my little disaster I had on yesterday if not you can click here.

I also shared with a few of you that I would go home hunker down and re-do it. Well, that didn’t happen either LOL many are that plans in a moms heart … but only the purpose of the children and husband prevail LOL … that’s my spin on it.

The post was about “Declaring War” .. My Pastors have been teaching and preaching (I mean like rhema word from heaven) on waging war and understanding that the weapons of our warfare our not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

Understanding that we are battling kingdom vs kingdom.

Understanding that there is a season for everything a time for war and a time for peace.

Understanding that you may  be called to fight and we need to be ready to respond to the call.

My Pastor said …

“Why are we so passive .. when the enemy is so aggressive”

It reminds me of a bully.

And the child getting picked on gets sick and tired of it and finally takes a stand and says ..

That is Enough.

We as a body of believers need to come to point with the enemy when we say that is enough!

We need to and ought to be sick and tired of seeing the enemy running a muck in our homes, in our children, in our spouses, in the lives of other saints and in our churches.

In our homes husbands still want to be boys and you cannot tell the difference between them and your sons. They take the back seat to confrontation instead of stepping up and exercising the God-given authority placed in them.

Our children running around confused, living a lie and accepting it, being abused and neglected finding affirmation in strange men and women who only look to prostitute them and  their gifts because their gifting go unnoticed in their own home.

Our children hollering they are gay and were born that way … the devil is a liar. My bible clearly tells me that we were made in His image and likeness .. created He them .. and what God made was perfect and He was pleased.

.. and if that still won’t sway you then you can be born again.

We should be sick of the enemy coming in and scattering God’s sheep. 

Saints being blown about with every wind of  doctrine and people’s cunning craftiness and deceit.   

Mere babes in Christ … separated and drawn away by the enemy enticed and drawn out by their own lust and led straight to slaughter.

Saints chasing after Pastors, Bishops, Prophets, Apostles all because of a title. When did your title and an outfit define power?

I was talking with a family member and they were sharing with me details of a conference they had attended. They went on to explain to me how the bad  the preachers outfit was and the high heels and the false eye lashes … I said in response

“Oh ok … but did she have any power”

You can look great, you can have a form of Godliness but the whole time you are shouting and jumping around you have no power.

It is a sad thing that some define one as having power and as being anointed by the attire that they wear. If that is the case some of us me being included have a problem!

But  the word clearly tells me that once the Holy Spirit has come upon you … you shall receive power.

And we wonder why people walk around saying they want an encounter with God and they sit in church sunday after sunday .. and have not changed and your congregation has not changed because they have not truly encountered the true power, presence and anointing of God. 

We define kingdom as being jeans on Sunday. While all of that is fine and dandy. We cannot confuse the two as the bible says Kingdom is not outward, kingdom is within us. (Luke 17)

Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14)

The perception of real power the perception of Kingdom … is warped.

Our brothers and sisters are being led out the church and bamboozled. I think it might have been Paul who asked the church:

“Who tricked you?”

Who drew you from out of the presence of God?

Who tricked you into believe that what they had to offer was better than what God has already established since the foundations of the earth?

Who has exalted himself about the throne, the knowledge, the wisdom of God?

Once they have been drawn out they get angry with the house of God.

James 1 tells us

14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.

But they are angry with the church but failed to realize that the watchmen sounded the alarm and warned you. But it was you who did not take heed. So no longer is the blood on the hands of the watchmen but yours.

It’s a dangerous thing almost a cancer to the body of Christ.

We are in a brutal battle family.

And we are watching whole nations fall off as casualties.

it should be and ought to be a sin to see our brothers and sisters being dragged out, beat down and going through and living in sin.

We have to understand that this fight is more than just ourselves but this fight is for every generation that is to come and for every nation that is attached to us.

Its time out for politicking and parlaying with the enemy.

It is time out for us accepting his lies.

Time out for living defeated.

Time out for not who we are.

We all have been hand-picked by God for a special purpose. He called us His own. We are His children.

We have been made in His likeness ..

We are a …

Royal Nation

Holy priesthood

His peculiar treasure

Ambassadors

.. The same spirit that dwells within the God that created and formed the frames of the earth and the heavens in 7 days, parted the red sea and allowed the children of Israel to walk on dry ground. The same God who pulled us out of darkness with an outstretched arm and the same God who breathed His life into us .. and said

“Greater works shall you do”

.. and we sit back and let the enemy act a complete fool while we watch people spiritually die.

The same spirit that rose our savior from the dead … dwells within us.

and we sit back on it and close our lips to lies.

Do you not know that whatever you conform and submit yourself to .. you then become subject to its lifestyle and whatever comes with it?

And we let our people on our pastors, lie on our God and His church.

Like my Pastors prayed for me .. I pray for you also.

that a warrior be birthed within you.

We need to be a little more like David.

Do not worry about their faces, Jeremiah.

Even though they are coming against you and seem to have a lot of opinions but no solutions keep building my wall with a hammer in one hand in a sword in another, Nehemiah.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might, (Saints).

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

God Bless You …
