Whatever Once Had the Power to Float Your Boat,Can Still Rock Your World

An Embodiment of the Blessing

An Embodiment of the Blessing

The relevance of God’s blessing on your life cannot be overemphasized. This week I would want to share with you an understanding that will help you become confident in facing life as it is – and winning. I trust that you will be blessed from reading and practising this message.

 

Genesis 28:14

And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

 

It is Inside You

God said to Abraham, “in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” The Bible says in Galatians 3:16 that the seed is Christ. And in 1 Corinthians 12:27 God tells us that we are the body of Christ. That means, you are the Body of the Seed (Christ) in whom all the families of the earth will be blessed. You carry the blessing!

No matter where you are in your life right now, do not identify yourself by your problems or your limitations; rather see yourself as a certified carrier of the blessing for the nations! Do not wait for help; you are the help another person needs. So rise up, put yourself together and go out there and become a blessing to all the families of the earth.

The Blessing Has Global Relevance

If there is one thing that all the families of the earth can and will accept, it is the blessing. This is why the Church is mandated to preach the good news of the Kingdom. You have a role to play if the families of the earth must be blessed. You are a major and not a minor. Do you see why you cannot continue to live an ordinary life?

The Church: God’s Approved Agent in the Earth

The Church is God’s authorised agent charged with the responsibility of becoming a blessing to all the families of the earth. The Church ought to be a blessing and not a burden to all nations. No nation can be blessed without the Church. Any nation that takes the Church out of its success equation will succeed into self-destruction. What the Church contributes to society is irreplaceable.

You Have Something to Offer

When you begin to see yourself as God sees you, you become unlimited. Do not nurture a beggar’s mentality. There is nothing honourable about begging. You are not a beggar; you are a blessing. Would you think like this? You need to meditate diligently on this truth until it becomes a part of your thinking – until you begin to see yourself as a blessing, and act as such. If you can see yourself as a blessing and act like one, you can tame the circumstances of your life because you are more than a conqueror.

Satan’s Footprint

Erasing Satan’s Footprint in the EarthColossians 1: 19-20

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whetherthey be things in earth, or things in heaven.

 

Your Peace is Blood-Bought

Jesus has made peace through the blood of His cross. We need to enforce the harmony Jesus has procured with His blood by reconciling all things in the earth to God our father. The Church must dominate the earth through leadership, wisdom, power and means. The Church of Jesus is the light of the world.

You Are the Body of Christ

Christ Jesus is the head, the Church is the body. He cannot operate in the earth without the Church, neither can the Church operate in the earth without Him. You are a part of the body of the one through whom all things in the earth and heaven will be reconciled back to the Father. There are specific areas of life on the earth that God would want to recover through you – the body of Christ.

God’s Earth Recovery Programme

God is developing and growing each member of the body of Christ, to actively participate in the recovery of the earth from the influence of the dethroned powers of darkness. You have a place in God’s agenda to reconcile all things to Himself through Christ-the head and the body. Every trace of Satan’s footprint shall be erased by the Holy Ghost through the body of Christ.

Join God in getting the earth back.

Africa is ready!

Ridwan2 20150429_234640

Living in Africa gives a person who pays close attention to his environment and sphere of contact a deeper insight into the conditions, way of life and the view the people hold of life. Just like on the national geographic channels, where we’re taken a little deeper into how some animal species live, reproduce, how they think and how they even go extinct. Similarly, how the archaeologist, the ethnobotanists, numismatists and the psychologists, their step by step approach taken to carefully examine species of creatures, plants, coins and the study of rocks. Careful studies done in these fields produce knowledge that keep advancing mankind’s awareness of his world.

However, I am of the belief that people living in this part of the world can also be made to see the rest of the world for the various developmental, entrepreneurial wave and economic progression they’re on. In recent times, projects for various developmental purposes being undertaken in most countries in the continent suggests the possibility of a new and growing Africa. But more appropriately, that the young people of Africa would arise and take what’s left of their countries and churn it into something wonderful. It’s amazing how some young people across the continent have taken to various wonderful innovations and exciting strides in business: Joel mwale in Kenya and Sandile shezi, science, art, music, international Politics etcetera. As opposed to the thought  “what good thing can come out of the continent”.

The very weight of this reminds me of a scene I witnessed a few days ago , as I  observed from afar. It was a typical day at work for this woman. She went on to unpack her wares as she arrived at her standpoint to sell. With the help of a passing gentleman, she gently put her pan on the table. She sells Koko (a local porridge made from millet, ginger, sugar), popularly known by the locals in Ghana. Highly purchased in the mornings by mothers for their wards as breakfast, workers on their way to work and frankly, every Ghanaian.

Strangely, one thing that drew my attention to her was the rapid change in the weather within a short time of her arrival. Not long after she set up, the clouds began to form. My curiosity increased the more as I kept asking myself what she was going to do, seeing it was about to rain. For a moment I thought to myself, ‘this woman has barely sold anything, and yet she’ll have to pack up because of the natural pending threat to her business’. Shortly as expected, the rains came down heavily.

Interestingly, this woman dashed out with her baby girl who was about 2 or 3 years old I think, sought shelter in a nearby kiosk and came right back where she sold. She only brought out a plastic bag, big enough to cover her pan and some other bowls she was using. I was stunned. As shocking as it was for me, I continued to watch. I kept asking myself what this woman was doing sitting in the rain selling. Reluctant to leave the rains and determined to sell, she continued to sit there without an umbrella.

For the whole thirty or so minutes I watched this woman, my whole view on determination changed tremendously. To me, the word meant much more now. As insane as this woman’s actions may seem to you, I think not. For me, it was raining, but what this woman saw was an entirely different weather. One that couldn’t stop her from doing business. No way. Her determined mind couldn’t allow her see the rains as an impediment to her business. What inspired her livelihood changed what she saw. While others saw rain and withdrew, she saw an opportunity to test the capacity of her determination to capture customers who drove by. This woman, like many others understand the need of making some money out of a day’s work. As meagre as the amount made in a day may be, they know their lives depend heavily on what they make in a day. So, be it insane or foolish you may think it be, I’d advice you be not quick to judge. But try to see life through the eyes of these people. Just as the archaeologist or the botanist, let’s go into the life and mind of these people, then you’ll know what it is like.

Typically, this scenario enforces my believe in the fact that Africa can make it as a people and a continent. I have come across many hardworking, determined and goal oriented people in my stay here. Not to mention the vast array of talents I have seen being displayed. Africa is ready! For most people out there who think that Africa is no good for business, well am here to tell you that there are young men and women who are doing tremendous things in their stride as entrepreneurs. Young people who are craving for one opportunity, Just to turn the lives of many around. Young people who have managed to make their voices heard through extraordinary feats in music, arts and Politics.

For all the young African entrepreneurs out there who are working hard to see their dreams and goals come alive, this one’s for you. For the ambitious and relentless young folks out there who won’t stop grinding until they make it, this one’s for you. And all other entrepreneurs out there in the rest of the world, keep doing what you believe.

Success is a daily journey.

Pursuit Changes Everything!

PURSUIT CHANGES EVERYTHING
Are you stumbling toward an uncertain future? Or are you ready to wholeheartedly pursue your dream?

There are million-dollar ideas around you every day… Do you see them?
Dreams are good, but not good enough. Faith is good, but not good enough. Goals are good, but not good enough.There’s only one way to prove your faith, dreams and goals… only one way to transform them into reality. The pursuit.

The most important thing you can ever do in life is find a dream worth chasing – and when you catch it, find a bigger one.
Pursuit changes everything. It captivates your heart, increases your momentum, unleashes focus, and brings astonishing results.

A major corparate study from sixty-two business leaders from Marriott Corporation to Apple computers, revealed that none of these leaders were workaholics. Instead, they were actually ‘workaphiles’, lovers of work. They actually loved what they did.
It is a poor disgraceful thing not to able to reply, with some degree of certainty, to the simple questions, “What will you be? What will you do?” ‘
-John Foster
If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
Success takes time. Nothing worthwhile happens overnight.
The world makes room for a person on a pursuit. Like a fire truck with its lights on or a police car with its sirens blaring, people may not know where you’re going, but they know you’re off to something important.
Pursuit is all that makes the difference.
Go out and make the change you were born for..

The Greatest assest of a nation

Eternal Life: The Greatest Asset of Any Nation
Eternal life is not a religious issue. It is the most practical and logical solution God could offer to man. When man united himself to Satan through disobedience in the Garden of Eden, he lost the life and nature of God in his spirit. Man partook of the nature of spiritual death, which is separation from God. However, because man was made in the image of God he was bound to malfunction outside of a living contact with God. E.W. Kenyon said, “Man was made as nearly like God as God could create a being.” Man lost his dominion over the earth when he lost the life and nature of God.

John 1:4

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

 

A Creative People

It has been said that “no heathen country has ever needed a patent law or a copyright law until eternal life was brought to it”. Eternal life is the creative nature of God. When a people have eternal life and are properly taught to walk in the light of it, they operate in the creative elements of God. A creative people are an asset to any nation any day. A nation’s competitive edge is in the creativity of its people and not in the abundance of its natural resources. Any country will be at the mercy of circumstances without a critical mass of its men and women supplying creative solutions to their society. Eternal life makes man creative.

Quality Citizenry

Eternal life is the highest form of life. It is the very life of God. Eternal life is higher than plant, animal and natural human life. A citizenry that possess eternal life are the highest species of men among men. When they are properly raised, they bring unparalleled quality to life. These are visionaries who conquer their circumstances to stay relevant to their societies.

John 1:4

‘‘…the life was the light of men.’’

We are discovering the impact of eternal life in every sphere of life. When we deepen our understanding of eternal life and allow it to regulate us we will become the redefinition of quality.

We will have heaven on earth if we allow eternal life to have the right of way in our Lives. Our education, industry, culture, politics, family and society will be heavenly.

What our penitentiaries need is eternal life. When the nature of man changes his habits change.

Leadership by Life

The life is the light of men. Eternal life is a leading and pacesetting life. Eternal life gives us capacity to have first-hand knowledge of God. The knowledge of God is leadership; you cannot truly know God and be unknown or irrelevant.

A man or woman who has eternal life ought to become a leader in their field of endeavour. You may ask, “how come some people I know who have eternal life are not making any impact in life?” Many possessors of eternal life know very little about what they have. You cannot make progress beyond your knowledge. For centuries all we have known about eternal life is that it guarantees you a place in heaven, after life on earth. Why then will God leave you on earth after you receive eternal life if it is only relevant in heaven?

Receive Eternal Life

1 John 5:11-12 

11 And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

 

You have got to believe on the Jesus the Son of God to receive eternal life. The greatest event in a man’s life is when he receives eternal life, because that is when he or she becomes a new creature.

The Man who moved a Mountain

The Man Who Moved a Mountain

Dashrath Manjhi, popularly known as the “Mountain Man” is a legend who’s works have enforced the believe that nothing is ever impossible to a man. His life depicts moral lessons that even a small man, with no money and no power, but burdened with raw determination can indeed move a mountain.

Dashrath manjhi lived as a poor labourer in a village called Gehlour in India. His determination to carve a path through a small hill of about 360ft (110m) long, 30ft(9.1m) wide and 25ft(7.6) high was birth from the pain he experienced when his wife, Falguni Devi died while crossing the hill to bring  him lunch. She slipped and seriously injured herself, which eventually led to her death. Poor villagers in Gehlour have to traverse through a narrow and treacherous pass to cross a huge mountain for their daily needs and for transport and connectivity. Falguni his wife, as every villager needed to climb the mountain in the scorching heat in order to get over to the other side of town. Upon hearing the tragic thing that had happened at the mountain, someone from the village alerted Dashrath at the mines, where he worked.

It was the shocking news of his wife that put Dashrath into a state of panic and he quickly took his blood splattered wife to the nearest hospital which was 70km away, where she was declared dead. The heart-broken man who loved his wife more than anything else in the world, deeply disturbed decided that very night to carve a path through the Gehlour hills so that his village people could have easier access to medical attention.  That’s crazy right?

Personally, the one thing I find so interesting about this man is how he thought even in the face of a tragic event. I mean, who in the midst of losing someone dear to them would ever dare make such a resolve? For most people, the pain and hurt forces them to either blame God, or the hospital or even the doctors for not doing their best. Memories of the times spent together quickly rushes in and the thought of knowing you’ll never see them again just becomes unbearable. Of course, as humans, it comes easy to us to blame, do some crazy things and even say things we don’t mean when in pain. But strangely, to dare entertain the thought of carving a path in a mountain? Now that’s just being stupid or it’s just far-fetched.

But no! That wasn’t the case for Dashrath. Burdened with the poise of his loose, he took to it. Alone, he spent all of his time and with his very own tools he carved away. Using the only tools he had, a hammer and a chisel.

I have never seen or heard of a man, so insane or goal driven to pull something like that off. So what is it that you’ve been told on countless occasions that you cannot do? What idea is it that you’ve had to discuss and yet people think it’s too far from reaching reality? Are you thinking of giving up because you didn’t get the expected approval on your proposed plan? Or you think you’ll be mocked should you share that insane (brilliant) idea of yours.

It would interest you to know what Dashrath said when he embarked on his path carving quest. “When I started hammering the hill, people called me a lunatic, but that steeled my resolve”. He said. He managed to complete the work in 22years (1960-1982). And this reduced the distance traveled from 80km to 10km.

Though mocked for his efforts, he made life easier for his people. And also demonstrated that a man can truly move mountains. In the same way, I am of the believe that you can also move certain mountains in your life. Why wait till you loose something valuable to you before you start? Why wait till something goes wrong before you know you can make a difference? Why wait till poverty strikes before you know you can make a difference in your finances? You have always known you could start your own business. You have always known you can make a change in someone’s life. You have always known that you were born to matter, and that your existence must mean something much more than it looks. You have always known that a whole system can change, neighbourhood or town could change if you start something positive to affect what’s lacking. You have always known. You have always known you can be the exception. You have always known…

Just like Dashrath, BE THE CHANGE
