Praying A’mis

Good morning,

John 14:26

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

It is with great pleasure I write to you this morning. It has been two months since I wrote to you and initially I have beaten myself up about it. I felt like I have just abandoned this call on me. But you see this is exactly when I do say that, whenever I do write it is spiritually lead, I don’t write because I just have nothing else to do or I am just so jobless.

I haven’t had anything in particular or of importance to write about, not that I haven’t written I just haven’t posted them.

So the reason I am posting today is because of a revelation I got over a week ago. It was about praying.

I have been through a few things lately and I just got a point where just couldn’t pray like I used to. You know from the bottom of my heart. I just prayed and did my quiet time because it was just a routine and I was used to it and I just did it. But you see when God knows your heart He will help you find a way back to Him.

I was talking to God about praying last week, and He was like “do you know that most of the time you have prayed amiss”.

I said but I’ve heard this thing too many times and try not to do so.

What does it mean to pray amiss?

(According to a little search I did)…

a-mis’:

There are two words translated “amiss” in the New Testament, atopos, referring to that which is improper or harmful (Luke 23:41; Acts 28:6), while kakos, refers to that which is evil in the sense of a disaster, then to that which is wicked, morally wrong. This latter is the use of it in James 4:3. The purpose of the prayer is evil, it is therefore amiss and cannot be granted (compare 2 Chronicles 6:37).

Whenever you end a prayer without thanking God then you are praying amiss. Whenever you pray without a scriptural backing then you are praying amiss.Whenever you pray with fear in your heart, rather than faith, then you are praying amiss. It is time to reposition your prayer life”.

He went on to say “yes! didn’t Jesus always say pray to the Father in my name?”

Luke 11:1-4

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”

He said to them, “When you pray, say:

“‘Father, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come.

Give us each day our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.

And lead us not into temptation.

As I was talking to a friend last night then this revelation came back again to me and as I explained it to her, she insisted on me expanding. As I spoke the revelation came back flooding back heavier than it did over a week ago that God had first given it to me. I was just in tears, I couldn’t hold back the tears, realising what God was trying to tell me.

Hmmm……..I must pray to the father in the name of Jesus asking of the Holy Spirit when I need a comforter or need remembrance.

John 14:16

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever.

I know some will read and say didn’t you know this, the thing is yes I did. But when you have been in something for a while, familiarity sets in. You can easily get lost in the routine and in the word “religion”.

Maybe I should have called this post ‘lost in religion’. Actually that will be for a latter time.

So I practice…

Father in the name of Jesus, protect, provide for me, my family and those around me. Send the Holy Spirit to lead, comfort me and bring to me remembrance. Strengthen me oh Lord and elevate me in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Bless the eyes that reads this, and continue to enlighten us in the knowledge of You.

Thank you Father in Jesus name I pray .

Amen. 😇🙏😇🙏

Nothing else in common 🤷‍♀️💔🤷‍♂️

Good morning,

I believe you had a great weekend and I thank God for keeping you. 

“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread”. ~Mother Teresa


I hear this statement all the time “we no longer have anything in common”. 

READ THIS!⤵️

WIFE:- I have been with my husband for about 13 years now and we have a decent relationship but there is no passion, affection, or excitement. We just have nothing in common anymore and live mostly like roomates.

HUSBAND:- After hearing my wife say for the past 12 years that she feels like we’re roommates. I don’t play video games, I’m active with my kids, I try to be as sensitive to my wife’s needs as I possibly know how, but I keep “coming up short!?” I’m not trying to paint myself as a noble saint–I know I’m not perfect. I am just genuinely trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong (for 12 years) that is upsetting her!? Whenever I try to ask her, she tells that I just don’t get it and then ends the conversation. I’m fishing here for any kind of any answer, because it feels like any minute the wheels are going to come flying off our marriage and I won’t have a clue as to what happened or how to resolve it!? I love her, I want to be with her, I’m doing everything I know to do, but like I said, I just keep coming up short!?

Firstly I find it the most absurd comment people make when they want out of their marriage. You didn’t have anything in common in the first place. Apart from that, as long as there is real love, when there is a bend in the marriage, the passion, affection, or excitement, can always be revived.

So I asked a few people who had similar issues and this is what I found, that they had married for the wrong reasons in the first place. When I asked why did you get married?, these where their reason,

1.) I really liked him, but mostly for financial stability

2.) I was getting older, but yes I loved him too

3.) He was very handsome and I fell in love 

4.) I was ready to start having children and we were ok at the time.

And so on…

This past weekend a friend had come to work with me on a wedding. During the time it randomly dropped into my heart and I said to her “aren’t you glad we married for love”. She said “Yes”. We may not have what we know some of our friends have, but we can see they didn’t marry for genuine love. 

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

 I realised a lot of marriages fall out of love because they married for the wrong reasons. They didn’t consider what the will of God was in choosing a spouse. They didn’t pray, they went only on emotions and feelings. 

Frankly you were not in love in the first place and that is why the love never grew. Real love grows and people enjoy each other more and more as time goes by. The first mistake is not waiting on God for the right person, which then leaves you with the wrong person or frankly choosing the bad apples.

Psalm 27, Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.

Keep God at the centre always. Because the nearer you are the better your marriage and the further you are the more the marriage weakens. 


Have a great week ahead and remember “Love is fruitful and is meant to grow when sown on a good ground and not wither away like it was sown on a stony ground”. Please choose wisely!

Yours always, this is…

All You Need!

Good morning,

It’s been too long, I have truly missed writing to you. But I needed the time off and now I get why. I wouldn’t bore you with  the detail until God wants me to talk about it to encourage someone one day.

——————————————————————-

2 Peter 1:3, God has granted to us everything we need for life and godliness through knowing Christ and trusting in His all-sufficient promises.

I have tried to start writing now for the past one week and kept feeling unready. So as I started to write this at exactly 4:10am this morning, while trying to pray and fall back asleep, I was thinking of all the young ladies in my life. I am sure as they read this, they would wonder whom am talking about. But you see I am talking to you all.

You see me as a role model because I give good advice, I sound wise and I come across collected and in charge by Gods grace of my life. But you see it didn’t happen overnight. I decided I truly wanted a change. I mean a complete change.

I was in my second year of uni when I was dating a young man with intentions of marriage. He became my worst nightmare. Another story for another day. But during this time I was looking for my next boyfriend, whom will make me feel better, a comforter, for someone to love me, for someone to want me.

But you see the Holy Spirit is the best comforter. 

John 14:26 – But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


Then I heard a voice say “I AM ALL YOU NEED”. I asked all I need? In that same instant the Holy Spirit made me realise, that Jesus is all I needed. Filled my heart with so much love, that I wept so hard and surrender my life to Him. He expressed to me that no man nor boyfriend could ever fill the void I was feeling.

So the change began by me….,

1.) I stopped drinking

2.) I stopped partying

3.) I stop wearing provocative clothing

4.) I stopped posing in pictures try to portray sexiness. 

5.) I stopped listening to worldly music 

6.) I learnt how to fall in love with God.

7.) I learnt to love myself 

And so on… and this is why you can look up to me as someone who’s got it all together. But what you don’t know is I am still constantly working on myself. As they say “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.

I have realised that I counsel you all every time but I sometimes don’t see the actual change that will better you for the good.

As I look through some picture post some had posted, I realised how can you flee from sexual lost, when your selfies looks like you are selling yourself as a sexual product. SOME OF, IF NOT ALL OF THE POSES ARE TOO EROTIC. I know we are in the days of people liking your sexy selfies. I will not be liking anyone of those pictures just to let you know. But I love you, and just trying to show you something.

YOU SAY YOU DONT WANT TO FORNICATE BUT YOU TAKE SELFIES SAYING I AM SEXUALLY AVAILABLE, I AM INTO SUCH THINGS.

Beauty is vain. 

Proverbs 31:30, Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

We say we want to get married, but what kind of man are we attracting with those poses. What kind of message are we sending to our potential husbands. 
There is a saying in my language “Don’t make a boyfriend your husband and don’t mistakenly make a potential husband a boyfriend”. 

You keep falling back into those insecurities, loneliness, feeling of not being worthy because true change hasn’t come.

When you know your true worth in Christ, NO MAN WILL MAKE YOU FEEL UNWANTED. Because you will already know that you are God’s own special creation and you are made for greater things.

Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

This is just to let you know I AM BACK! Please feel free to ask me to remove you from the broadcast. I am here for those who need me. God bless you and my love always. 😇🙏😘

#Natural v #Supernatural

Good morning. 

Another very important and powerful message I read this morning by BDHM. I need to pass it on for the spiritual minded or those interested in spiritual things.
MEETING GOD

by Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 Samuel 3:1-11,

And the child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision. And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was lying down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim so that he could not see, and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord where the ark of God was, and Samuel was lying down to sleep, that the Lord called Samuel; and he answered, “Here am I.”

And he ran unto Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou called me.” And he said, “I called not; lie down again.” And he went and lay down. And the Lord called yet again, “Samuel.” And Samuel arose and went to Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou didst call me.” And he answered, “I called not, my son; lie down again.” Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.

And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou didst call me.” And Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child. Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, “Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He call thee, that thou shalt say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Thy servant heareth.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

And the Lord came and stood, and called as at other times, “Samuel, Samuel.” Then Samuel answered, “Speak, for Thy servant heareth.” And the Lord said to Samuel, “Behold, I will do a thing in Israel at which both the ears of every one who heareth it shall tingle.

 

The supernatural is often mistaken for the natural. Because of that, the supernatural passes us by and we do not even realize it. Consider the call of the prophet Samuel.

One night as he slept, he heard a voice, which sounded so much like that of his senior pastor, Eli. Samuel heard this voice thrice and thought each time that it was a human voice. Could it be that the supernatural voice of God is so similar to the natural voice of man? It was the experienced prophet, Eli, who guided Samuel to receive the supernatural.

Some of the thoughts that flash through your mind are from God. They are the voice of God ministering direction to you. Jesus made it clear that the Holy Spirit would minister to Christians through their minds.

John 14:26,…the Holy Ghost… shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance…

The above scripture (John 14:26) explains that the Holy Spirit brings things to your mind. However, if your heart (thoughts and feelings) has become fat, stupid, dull and inattentive, you will never know when the Holy Spirit speaks to your mind. You will not know the difference between your own thoughts and those from the Holy Spirit.
Learn something right here! The supernatural is not always sensational, dramatic or spectacular. My experience with the supernatural is that God uses my organs of perception: of feeling, thinking, seeing and hearing. He will do the same for you. It may not be spectacular or thrilling, but it certainly is supernatural.

What a blessing and powerful revelation

Be blessed as you enter deeper into the understanding of supernatural and spiritual things. Amen 😇🙏😊

#Help

Good morning.

I’m just going to leave this right here. 

HELP!!!

by Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 John 3:11-18

For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning: that we should love one another. Be not as Cain, who was of that wicked one and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer, and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby we perceive the love of God: because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

But whoso hath this world’s goods and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up the compassion of his heart from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

A daughter of destiny will not quickly forget where she came from. She is prepared to help her father. Daughter, help your fathers in the natural! Daughter, help your spiritual father! Remember him and remember all that he has done for you. Don’t forget what he has done for you. Perhaps, you will never know the price he paid to care for you.
I am sometimes amazed that people, who have lived with others and at the expense of relatives all their lives, would not like to help anyone in later years. They close the doors to other needy people. They forget what someone did for them.
A virtuous woman has a kind heart. She is generous and helps many people, even those who do not deserve it (Proverbs 31:20). Perhaps you are the wife of some important personality today. Perhaps you are living in a rich western nation. Nothing happens by chance. Perhaps you are occupying a position in which you can employ many Christians. Please note that it is for a reason.
God is the one who established you wherever you are. He will come knocking at your door to ask you for your help. Will you help the cause of the Gospel when it is your turn to do so, or will you find an excuse?

Hebrews 13:16, But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Have a blessed weekend and enjoy one of my favourite songs. 😘🙏😇

Motivation 

Good morning. 

Just a quick one this morning. I read this this morning and wanted to plant a seed in our minds. 

BDHM says…” it has been noted that the greatest motivation for people in workplaces, is not money per se. A sense of self-worth and achievement is the highest motivation for workers. If someone does not feel important and appreciated, he often begins to look elsewhere”
So I ask myself a few questions…

1.) What motivation do give I to God to enable all my prayers to be answered. Not that he needs it?

2.) Do I really see God as important or my phone and other circular things?

3.) Do I always go when he sends me?

4.) How loyal am I really to God? 

This part got me……If someone does not feel important and appreciated, he often begins to look elsewhere.

That is what happens when you don’t allow God to use you, he will find someone else.

Matthew 7:6, Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

May the good God always see us as being available. May He know that we indeed genuinely appreciate Him, so He can continually bless us and pour out His grace and mercies on us. Amen. 😇🙏

Okay I am done have a blessed day.

Survival Is Imperitive 

Good morning,

Hope you had a great weekend, I did 😊

So I was talking to a friend during the weekend, and something about my past came up. I mean I’ve know her for nearly 15 years and she had never know that fact about me.

I am not the type that hides anything about my past, but I wouldn’t also go round broadcasting. If it comes up and it will bring encouragement and healing to others I would gladly talk about it.

But the point I was making to her was the fact that, it only takes the mercies and grace of God to go through life experiences and come out without a scratch.

Things may look so bleak now, but joy is coming in the morning.

BDHM once said “A survivor must continue to exist or function in spite of adverse conditions. We are in a battle with a real enemy. The conditions are not good. Satan is the god of this world and in a sense, we are on his turf. Every survivor must come through and pull through.”

2 Corinthians 4:8-9, We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

We have to find a way to carry on in life after every occurrences. The journey ahead is still far, so we must press on and pick ourselves up.

Am sure my friend couldn’t believe what I was telling her. When you see me walking on the streets, you cannot predict my past, or what I have been through. I don’t carry it on my face and it has never affected any areas of my life at present.

I feel so blessed when I think about it. I just cry every time during worship time, especially when I hear words like my stronghold, my refugee. Because that is what the Lord has been to me.

“Who am I that He is mindful of me.”

Always consider the fact that someone out there is going through worst.

I have learnt the act of letting go and letting God. I believe I have to harden up and be thougher than any problem that is coming my way.

The ability to accept that there will be trials and battles we have to fight, the better and easier it will be to go through them and come up on top.

BDHM also said “Confess boldly, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Say aloud, “I am able, more than able, to prevail and to win this battle. Though a thousand fall at my side and ten thousand at my left hand, I shall survive. I am a survivor in the name of Jesus. God will strengthen and keep me in all my ways”.

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.


Be encouraged and be blessed. Have a spirit filled week. Love you all but Jesus love you more. 😇🙏😘.
