Prayer 04/06/2022

1 Samuel 1:8
Then Elkanah her husband said to her, Hannah, why do you weep? Why do you not eat? And why is your heart grieved? Am I not better to you than ten sons?

My Father and my Lord, any sweet words from anyone not for evil but to keep me and my family in a position lower than our potentials, give us the grace to shake off such garment of comfortably in the name of Jesus Christ.

What is true love?

WHAT IS TRUE LOVE?

Years ago, when I lived in Lugbe, a suburb in Abuja, a number of girls lived in a building adjacent to me. They strictly lived to be picked up by men.

The girls will go out at night and return the following morning. I, and other neighbors were angry. The girls were very noisy. They never cared who their noise disturbed.

One day, the landlord had enough. He evicted all of them. Their properties were thrown out. All the girls found somewhere else to relocate, except one. She had no place to go.

She kept her belongings in our building corridor, and on nights that she was home, she’d sleep there… and that was on most nights.

The tenants in the building, including my husband and I, met to plan how to put her and her belongings out. Surprisingly, one tenant, a woman was against the idea. She asked, “What would you all do if this girl was your daughter, sister or relative?” She told us that this girl and her friends have, no doubt made wrong choices. But she reminded us that we too, at some point in our past also made wrong choices. But God still held us close to His heart and saved us. She cautioned us as Christians to consider what Christ Jesus would do.

Everyone was quiet. But none suggested any way to help the now homeless lady.

Later on, the same woman who defended her at the tenant meeting had a talk with her husband. They agreed to house the girl in their moderate apartment.

They invited the girl into their home and told her she could stay with them. The homeless girl was shocked when the woman said to her, “We know what you do for a living. And you are free to go out at night and come back the next day if that’s what you choose to do. Feel free to eat our food. Use the other bedroom. It is yours as long as you live here. Live like one of us. We did not bring you in to judge you. But we will continue to pray for you. Hopefully, the spirit will talk to you…, at your own time.”

The girl was dumbfounded. And she cried. At nights, she stayed home. Going out to look for men gradually became a thing of her past.

She would join the family for morning devotion and go to church with them on Sundays.

One day, the woman, now her landlord of sorts told her of her husband’s decision to pay for her to register in a university. The lady gained admission into a university. She graduated on top of her class and got a good job. But even before she graduated, with a university grant for outstanding students, she had started a business of her own.

Today, when you enter her office, she has this woman and her husband’s photo on the wall behind her desk. The photo has the inscription, ” ‘My parents,’ the only Christians I know”.

Folks, what is true love?
Many Christians cannot answer to this question.
We resist the true essence of love but gossip around the house.

The truth is, “Christ Jesus died for us.” Why would a righteous man die for sinners?
That’s what love is.

What can you do for someone even against your intrinsic instincts?

Every one we have chosen not to forgive, deserve forgiveness. That is the sacrifice that a Christian, who shows true love makes.

Love is not the practice of loving beautiful people. True love is shown by being willing to truly love those that many look down upon.

How many less fortunate people have you taken home from church after service to feed?
Why do we feed the rich, and don’t feed the needy?

Why do we scorn people who look like prostitutes? We look at children who look unkept and we shake our heads in disapproval, warning our children to avoid such people.

But what kind of people do we think that heaven is waiting up there for?

Let’s not lose the purpose of life because of what we have almost achieved.

Can someone say of you, “I met a true believer in you?”
Think about it.

Where is your true Love?

Have a great day.

How to possess the land

Possess the land — Eurovision

From: https://www.eurovision.org.uk/blog/2018/8/20/possess-the-land

Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead, now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses – Joshua 1 : 1-3.

In the above words from God to Joshua, let’s see two things:

  • I do give
  • Have I given

According to the words of God the ownership of the land has changed and the land has been given to the Israelites but Israel has not physically possess the land and people were still occupying the land. The people need to move with confident without any doubt. Like some christians today, people are in places of no possession. Brethren, until you wake up and make the move of faith, you cannot possess what actually belongs to you. We need to change our mentality and mind set so that we can become whom God has created us to become.

When you have an encounter with God, you should always remember that encounter. People can argue with your theory, with your religion, with the way you do things but no one can argue with your personal experience with God. God’s promise to give you a blessing, no one else can fight for the manifestation of that blessing for you but rather you alone has to rise up and fight for it and possess it. Stop putting your hope and trust on man because the bible says that ”Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord” – Jeremiah 17:5 (New living translation).

If you say you met Jesus and your life remain the same, it is not Jesus Christ of Nazareth that you have met because when you meet Him, your life must really change. When you ignore your relationship with the Holy Spirit, then you will not be able to possess your possessions because the Holy Spirit is the One that will direct you on how you will possess your possessions.

Prayer: O Lord, help us to yield to the direction of the Holy Spirit so that we can possess our possessions in the name of Jesus Christ.
