Divine interruptions

In life we are frequently interrupted, some times those interruptions are not just life’s coincidences. No, they are often much more than that - they can be divine interruptions that help us discover our wealth and use our gifts. Most of the miracles of Jesus were divine interruptions. We need to be sensitive to God, ask “Father is this you interrupting me or just an attack from the enemy?”Remember people are paramount to Jesus. You have God’s ability to be a life changer everyday, you can make a difference in somebody life today. Ephesians 6v8 shows us that if we make good things happen for others, God will make good things happen for us. In Mathew 8v1 we see a situation where Jesus allowed Himself to be interrupted and as a result a great miracle of cleansing took place in a leper’s life. Further into the chapter another miracle of great healing occurs when Jesus allowed a solider to interrupt His travels.Go on I dare you, I challenge you today, the next time a little interruption c…

If it’s unacceptable, don’t accept it

In our Men’s Breakfast on Saturday, the topic of discussion was ‘raising the standard’. My brother in law, John, said his old boss who is now retired, had a favourite saying and it goes like this, “If its unacceptable don’t accept it.” John said he now makes that one of his daily themes.All too often in life we settle for second best, all too often we settle for a lower standard than what we really desire or hope for. Some people long to see a greater victory, a better outcome, a standard of excellence, yet never get to see their dreams realized, and become frustrated to the point where they lower their hopes. The Bible tells us that “hope deferred makes the heart sick” (Proverbs 13v12). If we think of sick ground or sour ground, we know its ability to grow and produce is diminished or even neutralized. A farmer will plough his ground, fertilise it and sometimes he will even grow a crop, just to be ploughed back in for the express purpose of refreshing and redepositing minerals and el…

God never makes mistakes

“You are God’s best. There is a sense of destiny in your life because you are God’s idea, His dream.
Yes there is nobody else like you. Realize your potential, you were born for a reason, a purpose. God has an unbeatable plan for your life, and you know it on the inside. You were born for greatness to be a child of the King.

It is time to awake to the plans of God, you were bon again to win. You must discover your relationships, you must assume your God-given authority, it is time to use your power.Jesus said to wait on Him, “tarry and you will be filled with power from on high,” then you can access your wealth as a child of God.

I encourage you to believe in your destiny. Yes my friend you have a destiny, and remember God loves you.

Gratitude

“Gratitude is more than words. Its action and attitude”Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude. Gratitude is an attitude we need to posses if we are to succeed in life. Gratitude is something we need to put into practice everyday in our life. “Practice the attitude of gratitude” - we need to constantly remind ourselves of how blessed we are. Put yourself in constant remembrance of the things God has done for you.Psalm 34v1 says, “I will bless the Lord at all times, His Praise shall continually be in my mouth.” This was one of the great secrets of King David’s life. King David practiced an attitude of gratitude, and God said of King David that he was a man after God’s own heart. It is easy to understand that the nearer we live to the source of wealth, the more wealth we shall receive; it is easy to understand that the soul that is always grateful lives in closer touch with God than the one which never looks to Him in th…
