Greatest Love

Image

I HAVE LOVED YOU with an everlasting Love. Before time began, I knew you. For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for Love, hoping for hope. All that time I was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in My compassion arms.

When time was right, I revealed Myself to you. I lifted you out of that sea of despair and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked–exposed to the revealing Light of My Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe around you: My robe of righteousness. I sang you a Love song, whose beginning and end are veiled in eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and and harmony into your heart. Join Me in singing My song. Together we will draw others out of darkness into My marvelous Light.

Jeremiah 31:3 – The Lord appeared to us in the past saying:“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. 

Isaiah 61:10 – I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 

1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light

I AM ALL AROUND YOU, like a cocoon of Light. My Presence with you is a promise, independent of your awareness of Me. Many things can block this awareness, but the major culprit is worry. My children tend to accept worry as an inescapable fact of life. However, worry is a form of unbelief; it is anathema to Me.

Who is in charge of your life? If it is you, then you have good reason to worry. But if it is I, then worry is both unnecessary and counterproductive. When you start to feel anxious about something, relinquish the situation to Me. Back off a bit, redirecting your focus to Me. I will either take care of the problem Myself or show you how to handle it. In this world you will have problems, but you need not to lose sight of Me.” 

Luke 12:22-31 – And he said to his disciples: “Therefore, I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. If how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.”

John 16:33 – I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart: I have overcome the world.

“Forgiveness…in accordance with the riches of…grace.”

Eph 1:7 NIV

LAVISH GRACE

Peter asked, “‘How many times should I forgive someone who does…wrong to me? Is seven times enough?’” Jesus answered: ‘Not…seven…but seventy-seven times!’” (Mt 18:21-22 CEV). But we shouldn’t stop there. If God gave each of us only seventy-seven “forgiveness passes,” we’d be in trouble! You can’t bankrupt your “forgiveness account” with God. But when you refuse to forgive others, you’re overlooking the fact that “You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out” (Gal 6:1 TM). Jesus said, “Forgive—only then will your heavenly Father…wipe your slate clean” (Mk 11:25 TM). Whether it’s seven, seventy-seven, or seven thousand times, you always reap what you sow (See Gal 6:7). We’re all human, and when somebody hurts us we want justice. But God wants you to forgive the wrongdoer before he asks or shows any sign of remorse. Does that mean he will escape the consequences of his actions? No, it just means you’re not responsible for making it happen, God is. Harboring grudges is spiritually, emotionally, and physically draining; forgiveness energizes and frees you to move on. Remember, you’ve been forgiven “in accordance with the riches of…grace…he lavished on us.” But it comes with the requirement that you forgive others! When you think about the debt God forgave you, anything anyone could ever do to you pales by comparison, right? “His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men; For out of his infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth and giveth and giveth again” (Annie Johnson Flint, 1866-1932). Now that’s lavish grace!

Strive Youth Ministry

Strive Youth Ministry

Strive for Righteousness
Strive for humility
Strive for truth
Strive for God’s Kingdom
Strive for Christ like characters

Come as you are. The Lord is waiting on you. We come on the line every Wednesdays for Bible Studies and on Saturdays we join as one for Prayers/ testimonies at 10pm Est/9pm Cst. Our mission is to expand our prayer line across the world. Spread the Gospel to the lost. Make this ministry a tool for the Holy Spirit to use. Equip young ambassadors with the Holy Bible. God has called us to spread his word. For it written in Romans 10:14, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” We are the voices for the silenced souls. You have been called to do great things. Go and spread the word. May God bless you in doing his work. May the good Lord reward you and meet you in your times of needs. May the blessings on Abraham be given to you in your favor. Jesus loves you. He knows my name, He knows your name. You are not forgotten. Someone, somewhere loves you. You are forgiven. Your burden, take it to the cross. Lay it there. Rest in the arms of your creator. Have a blessed day.

This picture is amazing. The view of these little children walking and the verse brings more point to this image.

A Tribute To A Leader: Nelson Mandela

The father of Africa, our hero and a man of great leadership. A true activist. R.I.P in the arms of your creator. It’s so heavy on my heart. This year by far I can say has been a year that my eyes has opened up to many things. Mandela was such an inspiration to the world. He brought so much change. A man of wisdom and true sacrifice. His devotion to humanity has been a great one. I loved his quotes and the life that he lived. His legacy will forever live on. Heaven rejoice. God has called another angel. Rest in the bosom of your creator. Farewell, Mr. Mandela.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” -Nelson Mandela

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”-Nelson Mandela

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”-Nelson Mandela

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”-Nelson Mandela

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”-Nelson Mandela

“I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.”-Nelson Mandela

“ As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” -Nelson Mandela

My Identity

“I am not what the world thinks or says I am. I am not what the devil or the kingdom of darkness says, imagines or has designed me to be. I am not the picture of what my idolaterous forefathers wished I should be. I am not what the unregenerate mind of any friend thinks I am. I am not what my father and mother think or want me to be. I am not what my village wickedness, household wickedness and environmental wickedness want me to be. I am not a picture of what the national economy and institutionalised wickedness has restructured the people to be. I am not what I think I am. I am what the Word of God says I am. I am an express image of Jehovah God on earth. I am fashioned after the likeness of the Creator of the heaven and earth. I am regenerated by the blood of Jesus. I am ransomed from the powers of death and hell. I am blood washed. I am redeemed. I am justified by Christ. I am made to be the righteousness of God through Christ. I am a believer of the Word of Truth. I am born again. I am heaven-bound; my citizenship is in heaven. I am seated with Christ in heavenly places far above principality and powers. I am a priest and a king ordained by Christ to rule here on earth. I am the fear and the dread of God against the kingdom of darkness. I am a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit of God.  I am built up together and attached with other children of God into a holy habitation of God. The word of God says, I am a royal priesthood, I am a holy nation, I am a chosen generation, and a peculiar person to the nation. I am special in the sight of God.The Bible says because I believe and receive Jesus Christ, power has been given to me to become a son of God, and I am empowered to trample upon serpents and scorpions and all the powers of the enemy. I am empowered to use the name of Jesus to cast out demons and heal the sick. I am empowered to bind, to loose and to decree things and the Bible says wherever my voice is heard no one can ask me why. I do these things for my voice is the voice of a king that is full of authority. I am commanded and empowered by my God to subdue and to exercise dominion. For I am made a little lower than the angels and God has crowned me with glory and honour and has also made me to have dominion over all the works of His hands. The devil that was against my authority as a God’s representative on earth has been destroyed by Christ and once again; the keys of the kingdom of heaven are given to me and because I am a member of the body of Christ, which is the Church, the gates of hell cannot prevail against me. I am a branch in the vine; Jesus Christ is the true vine because I abide in Him. I am full of the fruit of the Spirit. I am full of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Because the grace of God is upon my life as the light of His glory, I am full of divine favour; I am a partaker of all heaven’s spiritual blessings. I am an overcomer; the Bible says whosoever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even my faith. In faith, I overcome ungodly worry, anxiety, heaviness of spirit, sorrow, depression, lust of the eyes and lust of the flesh. In faith I have overcome all the tricks of the devil, for it is written, greater is Jesus Christ that dwells in me than the devil that is in the world. No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper. In righteousness I am established; I am far from oppression, for I shall not fear and from terror for it shall not come near me.The Lord shall cover me with His feathers, because I have made Him my dwelling place. Evil shall not befall me; I shall tread upon the Lion and the Cobra and surely the Lord will always deliver me from the snare of the fowlers. God has made me a beneficiary of divine health through the stripes that were laid on Jesus Christ. Through Jesus Christ I have right standing with God. Through Jesus Christ I have access to the throne grace of God, to find peace with God. I have prosperity for God will no longer withhold any good thing from me. I have spoken with the tongue of the learned and as it is written, I shall be justified by the words of my mouth.I ask that the word of God I have confessed begin to transform me to the original image God designed me to be in His book I ask that the blood of Jesus wipe away every mark of reproach whether physical or spiritual. I ask for the blood of Jesus to erase every evil and negative name I was ever called. I nullify every negative report ever made about me.I cease to be a picture of failure. I cease to be abased, rejected, forsaken, desolate and downcast. I begin to manifest expressly every good thing God has written about me in book I begin to look fearfully and wonderfully made. I begin to operate at the head and not the tail. I begin to be a true worshiper of Jehovah El shaddai and I begin from now to continually praise Him and confess positively.” -Daniel Olukoya

-I love this book titled “Prayer Rain”. Such a powerful book and prayer guide. Above is a portion of what is written in the book. Just had to share,very powerful indeed written. Our identity is in Christ alone. Our citizenship is in heaven. Image
