The Love of (and for) God

Posted on

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
ROMANS 8:35

Good afternoon friends. Let me go staright to what we have today….

There are two point I want to make from that scripture. The first is that, Apostle Paul (The Writer) was trying to let the Church in Rome know that there is no-thing or situation or circumstance that can stop (seperate) him from loving God. He has made up his mind to love God forever. That is suppose to be the way of all Humans- loving God with ALL your heart and mind, making a decision to care and share. We have been called to love (God).

The second message here is that, God’s love for us is everlasting and constant. God’s love for us (ALL HUMANS) has been in existence, from the foundation of the world. No matter what you do, God’s love is still available for you to accept it. It is what I call constant love, and that is how God wants us to love Him back, and our neighbours too!!

Like I usually say; Love God and Love Man is the core reason why we are here. Do have a blessed week ahead. I love you!!!

Trust: The Human Capital

Posted on

Okay, good day friends. Let’s go……

I write today because of the deplorable state of human relationships I see everywhere (especially in my surrounding). It’s difficult to believe that someone would not want to cheat you, that someone will not intentionally hurt you, that there’s nobody that wants your downfall. Many people see everyother person as enemies, thus treating them as such. This has profound impact on our character that we tend to want to hurt others even before we “think” they would hurt us. You can no longer discuss a business idea with someone who has the financial capacity to see it through, without him/her thinking you are a con. Seriously, I get tired of things like this.

Even husbands and wives do not trust each other with THEIR money. Brothers, sisters, and other kinsmen and women are gradually becoming enemies, all thanks to LACK OF TRUST. People cheat on their spouse because they “think” their spouse is, our would cheat on them later, so they better cheat now to keep the score tied. Paranoia everywhere; “you think I want to hurt you, and I think you want to hurt me” syndrome is gaining grounds almost everywhere today.

Give people the benefit of the doubt (hey, I’m not saying you should be gullible, I’m just saying that if you find no reason to doubt them, don’t). You yourself, be trustworthy. Let’s all learn to make little deposits in our trust account with others. When you make a promise, fulfil it, when you owe, pay before, or as at when due, match your words and your actions, be faithful, DO NOT LIE!! (especially the ones we do to cover facts). Be good and loyal.

Imagine how it would be if I could walk into a company, request for some of their goods on credit, promising to pay when I make sales, and they give me, simply because they TRUST me (and ofcourse I did not cheat them!). This way, you have been able to start a business, with TRUST (not money, or your house or property). Poverty will reduce, death rate will drop, relationships will be better, you will be happier, and the economy will boost.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I honour you. Share your thoughts on this issue, I’m really looking forward reading them.

Lessons from Windshield and Side mirrors

Posted on

I’ll kick off today with this analogy from driving an automobile. If you are moving any automobile, there are various aspects that you have to ensure are in place, and always in place throughout your journey.

I’ll speak today on two aspects: the windscreen and the side mirrors. The side mirrors represent your past, and the windshield, your future. While driving, most of your FOCUS and ATTENTION is required to be ahead- through the windscreen. You focus almost all your energy on STEERING the vehicle towards your DESTINY-ATION. Little of your energy is used to control your speed, stop if need be, and obey the rules of driving. These also, are dependent on your focus through the windscreen. There is no effective driving without the windscreen- which represents VISION. Vision helps you avoid distractions, it gives you hope and courage, even when this are like they are going awry. It gives you DIRECTION, and with it, you are able to get to your destiny-ation.

The side mirrors are also important, but at the same time can prove lethal if focused on for too long. They represent your past. You may need to refer to them at different times for the sole aim of learning from them, not worrying about them. You look at your side mirrors (past) because whatever you want to get from them, is needed to get you to your destiny-ation. The goal is to get to your destiny-ation.

You have what it takes

KJV:And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

KJV:And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
KJV:And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Genesis 2:18, 21-23

Happy Sunday friends. Let me go straight to today’s post.

From the above scripture, you see that man had a problem. God confirmed this when He said, “It is not good that the man should be alone”, and He wanted to solve the problem. Prior to verses twenty one to twenty three, God made animals just to help solve the “companionship” problem of Adam, but for Adam, no suitable helper (solution) was found.

Then God put the man to sleep, and out of that man, made a woman- the suitable helper (solution). This is why I write today. I just want to tell you that, no matter the problem you have, the solution is WITHIN you, and of course, GOD. You have been empowered to DO more than you think. God has imbibed in you before you were born, the CAPACITY to solve problems. How did Adam know that the animals were not suitable for him? Because they did not come from WITHIN him!!! It’s all in you!!!

In you is DREAM, CONVICTION, DETERMINATION, ACTIVENESS, and RESPONSIBILITY to live life to the “best-est”.

Okay, just so you have a good laugh and learn a lesson from that picture, that’s why I write today.

In that picture, you’ll see just two outlets from that power generating set, but with that, over fifty devices have been connected and are charging.

You cannot do it alone, you need people!! Those who have gone ahead of you, those who are still on the same level with you, and your subordinates. You need people.
