It Is Well…

Good morning,

Just to encourage someone this morning.

James 1:2-4 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.


1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Psalms 121:7 The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. 

It Is Well by Bethel Music
Have a blessed day. πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ˜˜

BREAK UPS

Good morning,

BREAK UPS

by Dag Heward-Mills 

READ: Matthew 19:1-9

19 And it came to pass that when Jesus had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee and came into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan.

2 And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there

3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, testing Him and saying unto Him, β€œIs it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?”

4 And He answered and said unto them, β€œHave ye not read, that He that made them at the beginning made them male and female,

5 and said, β€˜For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh’?

6 Therefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

7 They said unto Him, β€œWhy did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement and to put her away?”

8 He said unto them, β€œMoses, because of the hardness of your hearts, suffered you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.

9 And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery; and whoso marrieth her who is put away doth commit adultery”.

God places the responsibility of cleaving on the man. He leaves and cleaves (glues) to his wife.

Genesis 2:24, Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


Divorce occurs when he is not able to cleave tightly enough to become inseparable. Marriage rests on the shoulders of the man, just the same way divorce also does. 
Whatever happens in the home is the man’s responsibility, although it may not be his fault. When man fell and God came to the garden, He first called out to Adam and placed the responsibility for eating the fruit at his feet. There were no questions for the woman.
Divorce brings about many complications. God, generally, does not like broken fellowship of any sort. The concept of a broken home or broken life hurts God. An unending hurt is inflicted (Proverbs 17:14). A bitter personality is created (Proverbs 18:14). There is a permanent break up of relationship/fellowship (Proverbs 18:19).
Separation is the termination of a commitment with emotional involvement. Divorce is legalized separation. Do not make a marriage vow if you do not intend to keep it (Ecclesiastes 5:4, 5).


Be blessed and let us continue in love. πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ˜˜

Why Does It Hurt?

Good morning,

I believe you are all well. Didn’t feel like posting today but kept being prompted to write this.

WHY DOES IT HURT?


When someone goes through a heartbreak or break up, it hurts because of the level of investments the person made while in the relationship. 

  • Investments will cost you
  • Investment is the action or process of investing for profit.
  • Investments can end up being at a great loss.

The type of relationship investments are in two categories, Physical and Emotional investment. 
1.) Physical investments are like

  • Cooking,
  • Cleaning
  • Spending time
  • Money spent
  • Giving your body
  • Buying of gifts

2.) Emotional investments

  • When you give your body, emotions are released, attached and left behind.
  • The nurturing
  • The caring.
  • Complete surrendered of feelings 
  • The love given to the person.

When you make an investment, you have to be ready for the risks that comes with it. 

The ability to understanding the risk, means you have to be able to identify your own attitude towards the relationship. By identifying the different types of risk, you can then pick up tips for minimising the chances of things going wrong.

This is why I constantly advice that try not to get carried away and do all these investments too early into the relationship. 

If you do, try and do them at small doses. Try and be sure the other party is also investing in the same quantity as you are.

The funny thing is when you do get married you won’t even practice half of what you do while courting. 

While courting an average girl is trying to show she can be a good wife, so that she will be chosen by the guy. 

Be yourself, he should be able to see those traits in you without going all out. 

Do not over invest until you are certain of the outcome of your investment. 

“LOVE IS A GREAT AND COSTLY INVESTMENT AND A GREAT RISK TO TAKE”.

Psalm 147:3, He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds.

I pray for every broken heart to be healed in Jesus name. I pray you will learn to love yourself and build back the confidence and self worth you posses and deserve as a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

Have a great day! πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ˜˜

Getting Married Doesn’t Solve All Your Problems!!!

Good morning,

I was talking to a young lady recently, and as she spoke I realised her thoughts on getting married was a bit off. 

We hear statements like these all the time…

* Jack you are approaching 40 and I am still cooking for you, go and marry
* Sandra you are nearly 35 you need to have a child, go and marry.

* He looks like a God fearing man.

* Get married because he/she will boost your social, financial and career life.

* Marry this one he/she seems humble
And so on…

* I just want a beautiful wedding.

* I will be complete and happy when I get married.

* If I don’t marry now, nobody will marry me.

Why do we always think marriage will solve our problems.

Take a look at what Jesus said (the Message Bible Version)

Matthew 19:11-12,

But Jesus said, “Not everyone is mature enough to live a married life. It requires a certain aptitude and grace. Marriage isn’t for everyone. 

12 Some, from birth seemingly, never give marriage a thought. Others never get asked – or accepted. And some decide not to get married for kingdom reasons. But if you’re capable of growing into the largeness of marriage, do it.

The verse said it requires certain aptitude (not that I knew what that meant until now lol)

“Aptitude means a natural attitude to do something”.

Marriage isn’t going to stop you feeling insecure. 

Many get married to even solve their financial issues, but then marry a woman beater, who will batter you emotionally, physiologically and mentally.

Some men even marry thinking it will stop their promiscuous ways.

But this is not true because at the beginning the scripture says “Not everyone is mature enough to live a married life”. Key word mature. And at the end of the verse it also says “But if you are capable of growing into the largeness of marriage, do it”.

This scripture is just saying it takes the grace of God and great maturity to get married and remain married. And if you are ready to grow and learn while in the marriage, then it will be blessed and fruitful.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
let us not be obsessed with what we think life should be. I know you are thinking, “she’s married, so she doesn’t understand”.

I am saying it because I am married and I have seen a lot of marriages break down because they had married for the wrong reasons. The wrong decisions in get married by marrying the wrong people or at the wrong time, will cause you more pain than happiness.

I pray you will not be forced into the wrong decision out of desperation. I pray that your time will come and it will be beautiful. If your time hasn’t come, I pray God will give you peace to overcome this time of waiting. I pray that you will have an enjoyable marriage. I pray when you do get married, you will overcome every obstacle in the mighty name of Jesus.

DESIRE A MARRIAGE THAT IS BUILT TO LAST!

God bless and have a fulfilled and blessed week. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜.

Be Encouraged!

Good morning,

Last night I had a dream. In the dream a couple where in a shopping mall and by the time they came out they had been given a fine for three different things.

On a normal day the man would have accepted it and paid. But on this occasion, the wife was adamant in contesting the fine out of fraustaion of being in constant debt.

By the time she was done proving themselves against the fine,the cashier gave up.

When I woke up and asked the Lord what it meant. He said “this is how the devil is always trying to keep my children in the bondage of debt. Forcing them into little little debts and they accumulate. But my children don’t contest and stand against it, they just accept it”.

We must stand up against every scheme and negative plan of the enemy in our lives and not just accept the conditions we are in, because with God no bad condition is permanent.

Ephesians 6:11, Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

No Weapon by Fred Hammond
——————————————————————-

So I came across this scriptures sometime last week and as I sat up waiting on the Lord on His message for you this morning, He reminded me of this scripture and I believe it was for me personally. I hope it will bless and encourages someone too.

Psalm 27:1-14

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.

3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.

4 One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple.

5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 

9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. 

11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. 

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. 

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the

Idiot Proof Marriage

Good morning,

My scripture for you today is…

Proverbs 1:7, The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

I heard this statement by BDHM in a messages last night, “PRAY FOR AN IDIOT PROOF MARRIAGE” 

It hit me that if you mistakenly marry someone who doesn’t fear the Lord, you have mistakenly married an idiot and you will know no peace in that marriage. 

The word idiot in Greek is “idiotes“, which means…

* A person of low intelligence. An ignorant man.

* Someone lacking knowledge or awareness in general.

Anyone who doesn’t genuinely have the fear of God definitely isn’t right with it, and is lack something. 

So if you have a man in the house whom is ignorant and unruly like Nabal. A man filled with a lot of pride and arrogance,you can not have an idiot proof marriage. 

Nabal didn’t even see or notice whom the anointed one was, he lacked knowledge which nearly caused him his life and the life of his household.

1 Samuel 25:10, Nabal answered David’s servants, β€œWho is this David? Who is this son of Jesse? Many servants are breaking away from their masters these days. 11 Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?”

A man who doesn’t yield to counsel or have respect for authority.

How to avoid an idiot proof marriage 

* Make sure he genuinely fears the Lord

* Never marry a lukewarm Christian 

* Make sure he has a spiritual father 

* Make sure he listens to instruction and corrections.

* MOST OF ALL PRAY YOU ARE NOT DECEIVED IN THINKING HE IS SPIRITUAL, YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.

I once had a dream about a lady I know, who married a man whom she thought was God fearing and spiritual, even from the wedding day, she realised he wasn’t whom she thought he was. 

He was very worldly and drinks alcohol regularly. In the dream she was heart broken at the realisation of her choice. She bitterly complained to God and at how disappointed she was in the man whom she has married.

May that not be our portion in Jesus name. Amen. 

If you unfortunately have a Nabal, start to pray, not curse him and say negative things to him or about him.

Remember there is nothing too impossible for God and only God can turn his heart around.

The ability to obtain knowledge, wisdom and understanding will give you peace in your marriage and will make your marriage and idiot proof marriage.

James 3:17, But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

When you have wisdom, you will have peace, and your marriage will be fruitful and filled with love.

* Pray that he will know the Lord and he will fear the Lord

* Pray that he will receive wisdom

* Pray that he will seek good counsel and acquire knowledge.


Be blessed and have a fruitful day πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ˜˜

“Secret Weapon”

Good morning,

Ephesians 6:18-20. praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saintsβ€”and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
I had missed writing to you all, but I had been unwell and just couldn’t write. Though I had loads of thoughts running through my head.

Thank God. I am much better.

During this time while I was unwell, I remembered some statements I hear all the time…

“Wow I can’t imagine how you do all you do”

“You are my superwoman”

“You are so strong”…

As I laid down weak to the bone I thought to myself, only if they could see me right now. Yes I do a lot in my life, and I always say I have never met anyone like me. (Am sure there are out there or even do more).

But all I could remember as I laid there was this scripture

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

This is my secret weapon to how I deal with my lifestyle. So I usually know that when I haven’t spent enough time with the Lord, I get weak and run down. I might be active and still flowing in the spirit but that is only because…

Romans 11:29, or the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

At that point I know the Lord is just trying to get my attention, to never take my eyes of him and turn my heart towards him.

You know sometimes we get so overwhelmed with life, children, work and church and we are not splitting our time properly and expect God to understand.

We just have to remember he is the one whom gave us this life in the first place.

As a good (trying to be good child of God, lol 😁). I immediately went to my knees and repented.

Then I prayed this prayer…

Psalm 27:7, Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice, And be gracious to me and answer me.

When things are seeming unbalanced remember there is one part of your life that is lacking attention. This is mostly our spiritual life.

Keep your eye on the ball…

Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Be blessed and have a great week πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ˜˜
