The Temptation Is Not The Sin

A song says yield not to temptation for yielding is sin.
The writer clarifies the thought going on in the mind of some who think to be tempted means they have sinned, but who fail to acknowledge the sin occurs when they yield to the call of the temptation.
People are daily faced with temptation and choices are always before us – The choice to yield and the choice not to yield.
Being godly or spiritual doesn’t exempt you from being tempted but a close walk with God helps you not to yield to temptation.
I would like to end this by quoting a song

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each vict’ry will help you some other to win;
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.
Refrain:
Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.
Shun evil companions, bad language disdain,
God’s name hold in rev’rence, nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown,
Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down;
He who is our Savior, our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

Pray, Watch and Give Thanks

We all desire new open doors from the Lord in this 2nd half of the year and God will truly open the doors of breakthrough unto us.
The word of God unto me is from Colossians 4:2 and it is to bring to our attention this morning on the need to pray, watch and also give thanks.
It is not enough for you to have desires in your heart about moving forward. You still have to consult God about it and remember it is God that gives (John 3:27)
So friends take your desires to the Lord in prayers with the right motives.
Then the next step is to be alert, to be watchful. God truly gives us daily benefits and I imply that God also brings opportunities our way but you should note that Satan also brings opportunities but Satan’s agenda is to drag you outside God’s will. So you must really watch and pray.
A watchman isn’t careless, as a man waiting for breakthrough, you don’t fold your hands and let good opportunities pass you by.
Even when God has given you a promise, continue to pray, work in line with the promise and be alert so that the enemy won’t rob you of your blessings.
Finally, you must learn to give thanks for what God has done, what He is doing and what He is going to do.
When you have an attitude of thanksgiving, heaven smiles on you and you get better deals than those who nag and murmur.
Today you have a choice to make.
Get yourself ready, the Lord is about to bring something good your way.
Don’t miss out.

Waiting

It been a while I posted an article here.
Guess so much has been happening and maybe that’s why I haven’t been chanced to post here.
Anyway I am in a bit of situation and yes my faith needs to be stronger than ever.
Faith not yet tested isn’t faith. A school of thought says that.
Lord give me the grace to wait on you in this period. Give me the grace to hold on and succeed.

The Voice Depressing You

In life it is easy to feel that you are not good enough or maybe you are not so fortunate like some of your mates. And this could make you depressed.
The voice of comparison speaks constantly to you and robs you of your joy and even undermines all your achievements. This, one way or the other makes you depressed and steals your happiness. It makes you  ungrateful to God and makes you ignore God’s will for your life.
God’s plan for you is different from that of your mates, be patient with God, keep working hard. He knows how to make all things beautiful in his own time.
Just hang on in faith.
Don’t get jealous of others.
Don’t hate on others.
Be thankful.
Believe God for bigger testimonies.
Don’t limit God.
God bless you.

The Mischievous Device The Enemy Can Not Perform Unless….

As a succeeding believer, in life there are a lot of vain imaginations against you. There are opinions against your existence, there are hidden and open battles against your prosperity.
There are plans to bring you down, break you, destroy you and ensure you are cast away from your place of prosperity.
The objective of the enemy as of old is to steal, kill and destroy. So the enemy always seeks for opportunity to achieve this in a believer’s life.
But this won’t happen unless you become careless. A careless Christian is meat for the Enemy. Carelessness tags along sin and every sin has a consequence.
When sin is in place, the enemy has a legal ground to carry out it intention in the life of such careless believer.
Don’t give the enemy a finger, he would grab the arm also. A careless person harbouring sin allows the enemy access to carry out his works easily.

Way out
Daily renew your mind, flee from every appearance of evil, don’t joke with son, don’t be overconfident instead take heed lest you fall.

The imagination of the wicked must not prosper over you.
Stop them before they stop you.
God bless you.

Give The Child A Future

As the world celebrates children’s day, I write to reach out to the conscience of those who engage in abusing children and also depriving children of a bright future to have a change of heart.
As the world celebrates children all over the world, we must remember those girls in the custody of Boko haram, we must remember they have a right to a bright future, and we must pray that their dreams are not cut short, we must pray that they are release unharmed.
Children are God’s gifts and they should be treated with care and love, never to be abused, never to be despised, never to be assaulted in any way.
A lot of children are suffering from inferiority complex because someone has told them they can never be something in life or probably someone has abused them in a way that has damaged their ego.
We must rebuild the confidence of our children, we must allow them dream and set the ball rolling for them to fulfill their dreams.
Don’t cut off a child’s dream, let him dream, let him achieve, let him fulfill purpose.
We say children are the leaders of tomorrow. But I ask you, would there really be a tomorrow for these children if we continue the way we have been living our lives and how we treat these children.
What would be left for our children in this nation tomorrow, when we have destroyed it all today!
For our children to have a better tomorrow, it starts from us doing the right things today!
Let Us Change Today! And give the children a better tomorrow!!!!
