GREAT MASTER PLANNER

 

Sitting in the living room ,watching film with others this evening something dropped into my heart that I thought to share here.

After the chores and dinner, we decided to watch film and my girl inserted Korean love film – You know all these love film that will have like 8seasons.

 

And then I remembered how I use to watch it so well during my singles days…praying for the good character to be favoured…praying that the evil/deceptive character should meet her waterloo. Praying and binding on top film!

I asked few questions from my girl cos she has previously watched the film before… And she was putting me through to the best of her knowledge.

O my my…those days I had the luxury of time. But now not anymore. I eventually stood up after few minutes cos I had to prepare my kids for bed.

Now to the lessons the Holy Spirit gave to me for SETsters…

You all know there is a film writer at the back ground
There is a scripts/storyline
And there is definitely gonna be an end

Halleluya!!!

Now follow me closely,
Do you know the film writer and the film director had it all planned out?…their is a path and there is an end, there is a template which the film director must follow irrespective of if it’s bad or good story line. Writer, editor and all the crew involved including the makeup artist follow the script as much as possible.

Good!

Also, my girl has a knowledge of the story line and thus could put me through while watching the film? She differentiated personalities and roles when I almost got confused.

If could ask her “Is this not the groom “? she corrected and told me its the groom’s sibling instead.
OK!
“Where is this then?”… ” this is the grooms father’s office”…OK I get now!

…That was how useful she was during the brief period I was present to watch the film. If she wasn’t there, I would definitely get it on my own but not easily or rapidly.

√√ Beloved, you have to recognize and accept the fact that there is an higher authority, a master planner, a master builder, God almighty who is concerned about your entire life, who has a script well written!

He has it all planned out and it will end well in Jesus name.

All you need do is give your life to Christ, believe in Him, trust Him more than ever before.
He will bring His plan and purpose to pass in your life only if you are truly willing for Him to pattern and orchestrate your life according to His choice.

Take note; He doesn’t struggle with an unwilling vessel.

God knows the best way to bring His perfect plan to fulfilment. You have to trust and obey every of His injunction that you will get through the Holy Spirit and through the word of God.

√√ Moreover, there is the place of counsellors, mentors, spiritual leaders and biological parents and by the grace of God, a godly group like this(SINGLES, ENGAGED AND ABOUT TO MARRY) – which you can’t shun. They are placed there on your destiny path to aid you.

Do not underestimate their role in your life. Just make sure he/she will guide you aright jot someone that will push you into a wrong marriage.

Take note that I said, my girl has previously watched the film and so I was able to ask her questions along the line.

God has placed godly counsellors along the line who will talk from their personal experience, their interactions with other people and much more as the Holy Spirit inspires them.

All in all, let the Master planner orchestrate His plan for you.
Let the “Almighty Director” lead and guide you…to your safe haven and a home of marital Bliss.

WE WANT PARTNERS THAT WILL KEEP US IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN

We are all familiar with the story of Adam and Eve. Worthy of discuss today is d story of garden of eden which I want us to learn from.

Friends, roommate, a particular course mate, prayer partner and most especially marriage partner have from small to huge role to play on our destiny journey and can make/mar our relationship with God.

Garden of Eden…. Is a place of rest, a place of purpose and a place of superb intimacy with God.

 

 

Adam was fulfilling purpose in the garden of eden until…. He expelled himself and family out of that beautiful habitation.

Beloved, be careful of those you allow to partner with you and those you partner with. Some you can decide/chose… Some you can reject…. Some you of them you can chose again if you realize you are not comfortable with them… While some you can’t replace.

If you partner with a person who will push you out of the garden of Eden…. You know what you stand to lose… You lose many things and gain nothing!

 

 

 

Now to marital relationships….

Single sisters/married women… pray well and build up yourself in the most holy faith so that you don’t push your Adam out of his garden of Eden.
You are his helpmeet
be a plus to that marriage not minus.
be a star and not a thorn
Be a counsellor and not a confusionist

Single brothers/married men… Pray well, chose well, be watchful and don’t allow a woman push you out of that beautiful habitation.
The great intimacy you have with your heavenly Father, please cherish and sustain.

If you are in a relationship(marital/non-marital) and your priorities become misplaced… Your spiritual temperature declines…. Your spiritual power decrease…. Your dedication/zeal fizzles out then you know something is wrong either with you or your partner.

If each time you leave your partner, you feel guilty or you have to confess and ask for forgiveness cos of gossip, filthy talking, fornication, lies and so on…. Then you should know that you are already out of the garden of eden. If not sooner or later, you will finally be out.

 

We need partners that will sustain the father/child relationship we’ve been having with God before they came into our lives

We want to remain close to God…
We want partners that will make us fulfil purpose and together we get to that promised land.
It’s possible!

Selah….

IT’S SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS

 

 

Olowogbogboro showed himself great in a family’s life this week. It’s a miracle of the century.

Help me shout halleluyah

Of course it ended in praise.

 

Following the antenatal care and several advice that has been given to the pregnant wife which she adhered to- this lady got into labour and by the time she got to the hospital, she was 8cm dilated.

She tried o!

Great!

whao!

that’s pretty good!

you can say that again and again.

But alas, the labour continued several hours but the baby couldn’t come out. They waited and waited, then the hubby informed some people, not more than 8 who stood in gap with the family.

The prayer and labour continued for ten hours when by the leading of the spirit, the least in age (though with the highest anointing) declared…let us all begin praying in tongues.

We all began the praying in the spirit in different part of the country where we were located.

And a miracle happened!

Ask me how?

Due to the pain and the fact that the head of the baby had changed direction, the surgeons in that teaching hospital suggested a caesarean birth after more than twelve hours of serious excruciating labour…which the wife and husband eventually agreed to.

Not aware that a chain prayer was on for them…the doctors prepared the woman for surgery and wheeled her to the theatre. 

On getting to the entrance of the theatre, what happened that evening was shocking to all present. The theatre door refuse to open despite all they did. While they were still trying to fix and get themselves into the ward for the caeserean operation – lo and behold…blood gush out on it’s own accord and the baby popped out.

 

isn’t the Lord great?

Praises to master Jesus.

Of a truth, God specializes in miracle.

Why spend that much, why worry, why carry your burden alone, why go through that pain when Christ has paid the price for you…

keep trusting!

And it will surely end in praise.

Amen.

 

TESTED AND TRUSTED PRAYER REQUESTS ON MARRIAGE

He promised that “NO ONE WILL LACK A MATE” and His words are yea and Amen.

Over a period of three years, I have been giving people prayer request after each counselling period. But recently, I felt led to compile and post here on my blog.

God is good. We are serving a living God. He has wonderful, beautiful plan for all his children. He promised that “NO ONE WILL LACK A MATE” and His words are yea and Amen.

Over a period of three years, I have been giving people prayer request after each counselling period. But recently, I felt led to compile and post here on my blog.

Of a truth, people pray but do they pray right? If they do, do they persist in such prayers. If they persist, do they pray in faith?

These and many questions are what you should ask yourself. So that after this prayer, you will get your miracle.

Those that have used one or more of these prayer requests have given me their testimonies. To the glory of God, latest had been a year after my counselling session with them.Trust Him, trust His word.

Beloved, Keep praying, keep trusting!

 FOR THOSE IN BROKEN COURTSHIP/NO PROPOSAL SYNDROME

After serious and deep thanksgiving that connects you to the throne of mercy you can then begin your prayer (you can as well sing this song as many times until you connect to God).

Tell God to teach your spirit man to pray. Ask God to strengthen your mortal body to pray. Tell him to hearken to your cries and pleas.

Lord lead me to my second half and connect him/her to me. Bring me close to my destiny partner and help meet and keep me far from every destiny truncator.

Lord remove every evil covering from me, anything hoarding me and hindering your son/daughter to see me, propose or accept my proposal. Let your blood that washes white as snow make me clean.

I rebuke every form of fear or irritation that is making him scared of proposing or going to the altar with me…or that is making her delay in accepting my proposal in Jesus name.

Let the fire from heaven descend and consume and destroy every generational curse delaying and denying me of marital joy or fulfillment.

Lord sharpen my spiritual antenna to know when you are leading me. Open my spiritual eyes, let me recognize him/her. Open my heart so as to love him/her.

I ask for grace to overcome every evil trap and bait. I come against every form of marital confusion. I decree and declare that your grace, mercy, favour will speak for me on this matter.

IT WILL SURELY WORTH THE WAIT!

 

Often times, sisters will think within themselves, say it out, or cry out in worry or prayers about the fact that “bro” has not shown face.

“Bro has not shown face o”!
“Brother has not proposed”!
“Still waiting.com”
“I am expecting”
“I am praying o”

 

 

 

The truth is… Most times though not all the time when a sister delays before marrying or lemme say before getting proposal, it is most probably because our dear brother is studying more or making more money or having more investment and then wanna be ready made before venturing into marriage.

It could also be because there is one or more attitudunal or barbaric character that God wants him to denounce or shed off… Especially in this era, where we  hear all sort of strange things, it’s pathetic to hear marriage crashing  after few hours, days or week. So wait, let God do the shaking and pruning.

Moreover, God might be restructuring, panelbeating, repackaging the brother for the great anointing, gift and talent you carry…Wait, let God increase the brother’s capacity!

Can you see that it actually worth the wait.
It surely is!

 

The onus thereafter lies on you- as the sister- to be prepared and well ready for that wonderfully prepared brother.

After you have prayed and the Lord says, “my daughter wait”. Then God is pruning or enriching the brother – you the sister – or even both of you.

However how long, whatever transpire during the waiting time, just make sure your words and actions are positive and that of faith.

 

 

 

 

waiting time…preparing time

waiting time…praying time and when i mean praying, i mean prayers not game playing.

waiting time NOT worrying time.

People testify (spinsters and bachelors), thanking God they waited. You will too!

Shallom.

can you say you’re rich?

hello dear Mr rich, Mrs rich, Miss rich!All those sacrifices and selfless contributions to kingdom business is yielding interest and being stored per time. They cannot go down the drain.

hello dear Mr rich, Mrs rich, Miss rich!

 

 

did i hear you say, “i am not rich?”

Maybe you are, even though you think you are not.

Dictionary/google definition of wealth says abundance of valuable possession or money. Even though the  money could be in raw cash, saved in bank or right in your pocket, you are still rich by wordly standard.

But, bible definition of riches/wealth is not about what is in the account or what you are worth or what you have invested. Rather, it is what you can store up their in heaven, where moth nor rust can destroy.

so, if you have no money in your account but you can stand in the gap interceeding for someone in prayers…my dear you have a valuable possession stored for you.

your cups of cold water given in Jesus name..

the school fees of a kid you pay

the basket of cloth you pass across to that person

piles of  textbooks you shared/handed over to a colleague or junior colleaugue are all adding up step by step day by day.

using your gifts, trading your talent, birthing a baby and nurturing that child in the way of the Lord is a big time investment that will surely bring reward.

All those sacrifices and selfless contributions to kingdom business is yielding interest and being stored per time. They cannot go down the drain.

Don’t only thrive to be a rich business tycoon, also store up treasures above.

 

 

 

keep trading!

keep stocking!

keep piling them up!

you will receive the reward if you faint nor get wearied.

 

 

i believe you now agree that you are rich…not necessarily by worldly standard but by God’s own standard.

 

the LAW

 

Do you know that the 10 commandments were given to us for our good?

Let’s study together Exodus chapter 20.

  • The first and second commandment says you should have no other God before Him, you should not bow to or serve any graven image….now this is really, really to your  own advantage. You make the devil happy by not serving God. It has been the devil’s plan right from inception, he has always wanted people to serve him instead of God. Remember the scenario at the garden of Eden…remember how devil tempted Jesus back then.So what good are you doing yourself by making the devil and those small demons happy? Why should you waste your money and time making sacrifices that you’ll have to renew if you don’t want repercussions?

 

  • Third commandment; Thou shall not take the name of the Lord in vain. Don’t swear but accord reverence to the use of the name of the Lord. If the gods of thunder or lightning does not take with levity , swearing, emitting its punishment sternly in great rage of fury, then how much more the consequences, if the name of Jesus is being used in careless levity. Biko, don’t swear at all, either by heaven, earth or by His name.\
  • Fourth commandment; Keep the Sabbath day holy, which is now the day of the Lord, the day of rest. Please endeavour to rest from all your toils and labour of the week and get refreshed for the upcoming week. Saturday is just a day of rest from your work you still have to use the hours for personal things and most especially parties here and there. So use your Sunday to rest and rejuvenate yourselves.
  • Fifth commandment; Honour your parents and even elders. If it is not even in the commandments of God, it is our tradition. It’s a general belief and biblical that respect for elderly ones comes along with blessings especially our parents who have invested so much in us.
  • Sixth commandment; don’t kill. if you kill and after investigation, you are declared guilty as charged you will be killed too.
  • Seventh commandment; you know the end result of adultery? Sooner or later you will have a child out of wedlock or contract venereal diseases. Is that what you want?
  • Eighth commandment; don’t steal, because no matter how smart or tactful you are, you will eventually get caught and the shame and stigma that follows being called a thief is not worth disobeying the commandment.
  • Tenth commandment; don’t bear false witness and don’t covet thy neighbour’s belongings. The act of covetousness is corollary, if you do any of such it’s going to be done to you. What goes around surely comes around; whatever you sow you will reap.

Can you now agree with me that it is for our own good? God gave us these commandments so we could enjoy our lives.

In Matthew22:37-40, Jesus summarised the law into two;

  • Love the lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy might(First to fourth commandments)
  • Love your neighbour as yourself(fifth to tenth commandments)

So abide and walk by God’s principles so you enjoy your life here on earth and in heaven (you’ve got nothing to lose by being law abiding).

The GOOD NEWS is this, after these laws were given, Jesus was sent and he died for our sins, and He has given us the power to go and sin no more.

#No more struggle#

#no more falling and rising#

Now grace is much more better and greater than all our sins.

amen.
