There was this story about a man who boarded a ship from Europe to America. This was in the olden days hence, flights were not affordable then.... 1/9
Naturally, the ship journey would take a period of months and travellers would usually take on with them clothing and a few provision incase one should get hungry at odd hours, but there was this guy... 2/9
This guy had on him only a pack of cabin biscuits and would sneakily hide and eat them whenever a meal was presented before the travellers... 3/9
Once he was doing this when a fellow traveller saw him and asked "sir, wouldn't you join us on the table for dinner?"

Shamefacedly and painfully as though he had been caught in an obscene act, He let out this words "I don't have money to pay" 😢.. 4/9
The traveller looked puzzled, waiting to hear the completion of the statement, "pay what" He asked?

"I don't have money to pay for the food" replied the first man.

The man who asked him looked at him first pitifully, then he let out a smile and started laughing almost uncontrollably...

"The food is free" He roared!

The man couldn't believe his ears, you mean all this weeks of eating cabin biscuit..

There had been provision for him at the table untouched ... pity!

This is the reality of many believers today, we are aboard the gospel but many fail to believe everything has already been paid for..

Instead of coming boldly to God, they'd rather hide away and eat the "crumbs" they came in with!

Jesus died for our sins but He didn't end there! He rose again and made us sons of God. We have access to God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Ponder on this truth..

As you celebrate your Easter Holidays, let this be beyond rice and chicken, grasp the revelation behind this great truth that all your sins have being paid for and if you come to God, you would receive all the benefits that come with salvation!

#HappyEaster 9/9

It happened again!
This time with much flow than the last time.
How could one be so unfortunate!
Why would one have to battle with such an ailment for such a long period of time?
For twelve years she had battled with this ailment..
seeking help from far and near, specialists and doctors all capitalizing on her condition to experiment and make more money off her. Come today, come tomorrow, lots of prescriptions and things to avoid, Yet nothing worked. She had had enough...
Then she heard about Him, about the things He does for people, how he could use words to cure maladies! She said to herself "I must meet this man, get myself an audience, maybe get Him to see if he could heal me of this ailment" she pondered..

Thoughts are the basic, most fundamental fragments of our mind which control the way we perceive and respond to reality.

Thoughts could be built upon or discarded depending on the nature of the thought as it pertains the thinker's choice. In
other words, the thinker can choose what he or she wants to think upon at any given time. Now thoughts could be influenced depending on the exposure of the thinker, his mind, his environment, his subordinate desires or fantasies as we'd prefer to call it.
Thoughts, not skill or ability could make or mar any man, God made us know the thoughts he had towards us, which are of peace and not evil. [Jer. 29:11]

Thoughts could go as far as how we perceive God. Think wholesome thoughts concerning God and His perfect will for you.

I wear my persecution like a badge of honour. Jesus was a carpenter, he never faced bitterness and threats until he started working the works of God.

Peter was a fisherman, He never got whipped and arrested until he healed the lame man at the beautiful gate.

Let's talk about
Stephen in Acts 7, wise and of good report, until he started performing signs and wonders which caused him to be summoned before the religious leaders.

Dear Believer, the life of power is also a life of persecution, the world wants you calm and collected. Refuse to be tamed!
Be that burning and shining light! Preach the gospel unreservedly and and make up your mind to accept all the honour and persecution that comes with it.

The world is passing away along with it's desires but whosoever does the will of God abides forever. (1Jn 2:27)
