Pray for Zimbabwe

Hello People!Zimbabwe hand

Well, today I want to post a prayer for my Country Zimbabwe as it goes through its transition after our previous leader, President Robert Mugabe has stepped down in a forced resignation.

You can read all about that through reading CNN’s post by clicking here. I’m not going to talk about all the chaos that the country went through before and after all of this happened because that’s not what’s important right now. What’s important right now is the livelihood of the people  and the hope that the new leader President Emmerson Mnangagwa will bring peace, stability and financial prosperity for the people of Zimbabwe.

All I can say is that a leader can start off well, but if one gets drunk with power, your end may become tragic. Think of King David in the Bible….He started off well as a shepherd boy, but when he became king and lusted after another man’s wife (Uriah’s wife), he did the unthinkable and murdered Uriah by sending him off to battle to die there as a diabolical scheme to get Uriah’s wife (Bathsheba) to marry him due to his covetousness/jealousy and lust (You can read all about that in 2 Samuel 11).

God did not overlook David’s crime… Just because you start off well being an honest leader/person in the beginning of your walk with the Lord, doesn’t mean that you can’t ever stray after a certain time has past. If you lust for power or other peoples things and move into a realm where you don’t care if you hurt other people just to get whatever it is that you want…you will end up doing many unbelievable things that will displease God and judgment will ultimately pass against your head. As Christians, we need to be cautious and humble enough to understand that no matter how humble your beginnings were in your walk with God, when God elevates you into a position of power:

  • do not let that power corrupt your morals,
  • do not let that power to steer you away from doing the “right thing”,
  • do not let that power drown nor sear your conscience,
  • do not let that power be used to abuse other people,
  • do not let that power be the cause of your downfall.

With great power comes great responsibility, so always tune your heart to remain humble, love justice and act with mercy, otherwise, you will succumb to your own devises if you leave your morals unchecked. The Lord stresses that we must guard our hearts above all else as stated in the following verses of scripture:

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

The entire chapter of Proverbs 24 epitomizes what I think is happening in Zimbabwe at this time. The Lord our God does not overlook corruption, oppression and destruction of a people or a country. Those that were part of oppressing the people of Zimbabwe will be dealt with by the Lord’s Hand if they fail to repent for their evil schemes and deeds. If God would not overlook the tyrannical abuse of power by Pharaoh in the days of Moses, then I believe that this same God will not overlook the tyrannical abuse of power from any leader that abuses their citizens. I’m not only talking about just Zimbabwe, but this also goes for any leader of any nation, or to any person in a place of leadership whether it be in the political realm, religious realm or in the business realm. May this serve as a warning to all people that whatever you do to oppress people’s lives, the Lord will bring swift judgment against a person’s head according to His timing over any level of gross injustice(s) perpetrated against the innocent. It is better to turn away from your wicked ways and seek God to renew a right spirit in you through repentance in order to lead people with Love, Justice and Mercy rather than drown in your pride and obstinacy. So for today, pray for the people of Zimbabwe and pray for your own nation’s leaders that they may rule with love, justice, peace, righteousness and compassion for the people that they are called to lead, Amen! God Bless You Everybody! 😀

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

Real Live Zombies (Flakka) – The New Drug Out There

Hello Peeps! 

I just wanted to post this crazy video about this synthetic drug out there on the street called Flakka also known as the “Zombie Drug”. I don’t know how many people are aware of it since I just came to find out about it recently through a video that someone sent me. When you watch this video, you will definitely be disturbed concerning what types of drugs are out there these days aimed to target your children and lead them to an early grave if they start abusing this stuff.

Image result for children facebook banner

In 2012, I wrote a post called “Dangerous Youth Activities” as an eye opener post directed towards parents/guardians specifically, and/or mentors that are unaware of how crazy our world is becoming with respect to the crazy fads that are out there targeting Children. As a Christian, whether you’re a parent or mentor, I think it’s very important to always keep up-to-date with the new stuff that’s out there driving our young generation in the wrong direction. It concerns me how dangerous fads are becoming a norm with our young generation and how hard drugs that used to be very difficult to get access off the street, are now becoming more easily accessible as time goes by. That’s why, as parents or mentors, we need to be up-to-date with everything that’s going on around us and not live in a bubble assuming that the days aren’t getting any darker for our young generation of kids.

According to a 2015 CNN article on the topic of this synthetic drug called Flakka:

Flakka, which gets its name from Spanish slang for a beautiful woman (“la flaca”), contains a chemical that is a close cousin to MDPV, a key ingredient in “bath salts.

These chemicals bind and thwart molecules on the surface of neurons that normally keep the levels of mood-regulating neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, in check. The result is to “flood the brain” with these chemicals, Hall said. Cocaine and methamphetamine have similar modes of action in the brain, but the chemicals in flakka have longer-lasting effects, Hall said.

Although a typical flakka high can last one to several hours, it is possible that the neurological effects can be permanent. Not only does the drug sit on neurons, it could also destroy them, Hall said. And because flakka, like bath salts, hang around in the brain for longer than cocaine, the extent of the destruction could be greater.

Another serious, potentially lingering side effect of flakka is the effect on kidneys. The drug can cause muscles to break down, as a result of hyperthermia, taking a toll on kidneys. Experts worry that some survivors of flakka overdoses may be on dialysis for the rest of their life.

Like most synthetic drugs, the bulk of flakka seems to come from China and is either sold over the Internet or through gas stations or other dealers. A dose can go for $3 to $5, which makes it a cheap alternative to cocaine. Dealers often target young and poor people and also try to enlist homeless people to buy and sell, Hall said. These are “people who are already disadvantaged in terms of chronic disease and access to health care,” he added.

The fact that this drug is easily accessible and cheap should wake us up a bit to become more vigilant about informing our youth about the consequences of engaging in not only just this type of drug, but any type of drug for that matter to keep them safe and informed enough to make wise decisions when confronted with the temptation to use drugs as a form of escapism or entertainment for recreational use. I find it disturbing that the fads out there these days aimed to target youth seem to be getting darker and darker and seem to, in many ways, introduce them to subtle forms of witchcraft. I’m also becoming aware that youth these days seem to be preoccupied and interested with things related to the occult lately as they experiment with ghost-related games, i.e. usage of the Ouija board, or some have started to experiment with playing weird games that they find online to play like The Elevator Game inspired by the mysterious Elisa Lam death story. There are other weird paranormal games out there that seem to be aimed at getting people to experiment with demonic spiritual forces and witchcraft.

I will name a few disturbing games that parents should be concerned about if they aren’t already aware of them: 1.) The Three Kings Cross Game, 2.) The Dark Reflection Game, 3.) The One-man-hide-and-seek Game, 4.) Charlie Charlie, 5.) The Kokkuri San Game, 6.) Bloody Mary, and 7.) Hide and Clap in the Dark Game. All of these games are described by the following site:

I’m sure that there are plenty more games out there that I haven’t listed here that most likely have dark elements to them and are most likely occult in practice that are being introduced to youth that like to experiment with things they know nothing about. As parents and/or mentors, we need to keep up-to-date with fads in order to teach our children in the way that they should go so that they don’t depart from Godly counsel and understanding.

Don’t allow your children to become a proverbial Hosea 4:6 (NKJV):

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

I pray that as you watch this video, it will stimulate you and encourage you to become more vigilant and determined to keep up-to-date with the new things that are out there aimed to kill off the younger generation with ignorance as its weapon. Knowledge is power so remain informed at all times in order to protect your children. I pray that this post blesses somebody today. God Bless You Everybody!

Shift into a Place of Praise

Hello People!

Funny Eve 7Well, I should be sleeping right about now since it’s past midnight but I just had to post this awesome song sung by Matt Redman feat. Kim Walker-Smith called Place of Praise. 

This past week, I’ve been experiencing a serious case of Deja Vu. I’ve been seeing people that I haven’t seen in ages by “coincidence” and I’ve had dreams about certain people that give me some insight as to what is going on with them currently. I’ve prayed for people that needed a breakthrough and they’ve seen results and I personally am seeing a shift of favour happening in my life as I continue to pursue God in my daily life. What I want to say tonight, or should I say this morning to you is that no matter what it is that you are currently facing right now, turn back every angry thought and shift yourself into a position of praise. When you start to praise God, something miraculously shifts favour towards your cause in the atmosphere. You may not see the results right away, but I can tell you that those that seek God in Spirit and in Truth, will see divine results regarding their cause. Pray and Fast if you have too…but seek God diligently and He will reward you with the answers to your prayers. I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

Hebrews 11:6 [Full Chapter]

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Transformative Forgiveness – A Story of Genocide

Hello Peeps!

I wanted to post this video of Pastor Mark Finley – a televangelist who was “the first Seventh-day Adventist pastor to do a satellite evangelistic series who also served as one vice-president out of nine for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and has written over 74 published books” (Source: Wikipedia – Mark Finley).

Image result for forgivenessIn his sermon, he talks about the mass genocide of Rwanda with respect to the Hutus fighting against the Tutsis, where a shocking 1 million people were killed in less than 9 months. When the genocide began, there were less than 380,000 seventh-day adventists living in Rwanda, and when the genocide ended there were at least 100,000 adventists that were found dead in 6 months. Unfortunately, the Genocide trials still continue against the killers to this day.

The killings were so great that the bodies ended up being stacked up one on top of the other that even the dogs came and ate them… When there was no room to throw the bodies in the streets, they started to throw thousands of bodies into the river until the river got clogged up with dead bodies… Many people lost their lives during this genocide. However, one lady who had gone through this period of mass genocide, had survived from a brutal attack from one of her attackers and had turned her horror story into a movement of passion when the one who had attacked her became a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. She had chosen to turn her bitterness and hatred into a demonstration of forgiveness, compassion and love that turned her enemy to become her adoptive son.

Related imageHonestly, this story made me look at myself and made me realize how the road of forgiveness is so very difficult and yet trans-formative in power. I can’t say, judging from the story of this woman, that I would have had that same level of grace to forgive in the manner that she did…but wow…it humbled me to know that I’ve still got a long ways to go in order to demonstrate that level of mercy and compassion to another human being that may have hurt you in ways that is so hard to describe. If Jesus could heal the ear of the Servant of Malchus that was cut off by Simon Peter who did so in his aggression because the servant had come to escort Jesus to be crucified on the cross … (Matthew 26:51; Mark 14:47Luke 22:50John 18:10John 18:26); then I guess as Christians, we need to realize the true meaning of these verses of scripture:

Image result for forgiveness1 John 4:18 [Full Chapter]

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Forgiveness and Prayer ] “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

So when you watch this short video, think about the level of grace that you have in your life and seek God to help you increase that level of grace and mercy to forgive those that have offended you in some way no matter how petty or heinous the offense may be. Sometimes, the forgiveness we seek from God is also determined on the level of forgiveness we are willing to give to others that have offended us in some way. May God help us to be compassionate and forgiving as we grow in the Love of God. I pray that this video blesses your spirit today. God bless You Everybody! 😀

Unashamed of the Gospel of Truth

Hello People!

I wanted to post this video of this guy evangelizing in the streets of Britain. When you watch this video, you’ll see that he is bold and amazing in that he is not ashamed of preaching the Gospel of Truth despite police trying to shut him down for being a “public disturbance”. It reminded me of the time when I did this with some friends in the streets of Toronto.

Image result for Evangelism

I can tell you right now that street evangelism is not my thing. *say it ain’t so Sherline!*, Unfortunately, this is the case. Street evangelism was definitely outside my comfort zone and I think having some friends come along with me to do it helped me out in a BIG way. Personally, I much prefer to preach or teach on a pulpit rather than speaking to strangers on the street. I think that the discomfort of street evangelism also comes from the fact that the people I would talk to, tended to be men in particular, who would gravitate towards me and try to listen to me only to seek for my phone number at the end because they had ulterior motives in seeking a date with me rather than listening to me preach about the Gospel of Truth.

Can you blame a sistah when she says she doesn’t like street evangelism? I think that it’s a grace that some people have the passion for and I simply don’t have that grace for it *just being honest about that one*. Give me a pulpit and I can preach and teach, but don’t get me to stand out there on the street and hand out tracts…that’s just not my thing and not my grace. I think that each person has a level of grace that is able to be effective in whatever they are gifted to do, so use what you know how to do and simply do that well is my advice.

Image result for Street Evangelism

Ugh…street evangelism… makes me cringe every time I think about it, because it isn’t my thing and I applaud those that have the passion for it. What I can say is that, each person has a level of grace to do what they can to spread the Gospel of Truth so I stuck to my lane. I’m good at teaching/preaching/speaking on a pulpit and/or in a cell group and I also blog about my faith, reaching the masses around the world by maximizing on what I’m good at. So my message to you today, is to do what you know how to do and do it well in order to spread the message of God in other people’s lives. No need to reinvent the wheel when you can simply ride with it.

Image result for Street Evangelism

I applaud those that have the passion for Street Evangelism. 

You have a certain level of grace that is able to do it in the best way you know how. Some people may not be able to speak well, but know how to draw pictures, or create various types of paraphernalia, music, books, clothing, videos and/or animations… Some others use their marketplace abilities to reach people so my emphasis to you is to use the gift(s) that God gave you in order to do the same thing and be effective. We all have a unique way of reaching people so do what you know how to do and do it well. I pray that this video blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀


O Come to the Altar of Forgiveness

Hello Peeps!

Funny Eve 1

Stop beating yourself up over your mistakes and learn to forgive yourself.

I just wanted to post this awesome song by Elevation Worship called O Come to the Altar. Sometimes people beat themselves up over the past mistakes that they have made; however, God will not despise a person who comes before Him with a broken and contrite spirit. Rather than dwelling on your past mistakes in a place filled with self-condemnation, learn to humble yourself and come before God and confess your (sins) and your mistakes so that you can be in right-standing again. Do not allow your regrets to steer you away from the open arms of Jesus’ forgiveness for your soul. The Lord is near you when you have a broken heart and a contrite spirit, so learn to walk into the arms of God’s forgiveness for you today and turn away from the things that led you to that place of self-condemnation, Amen! I pray that this song by Elevation Worship blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have contrite spirit.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart— These, O God, You will not despise.

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist,” Says the Lord. “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word. 

Reconditioning Your Mind to have Barrier Breaking Faith

Hello Peeps!

I wanted to post this inspirational short video about Dwayne “The ROCK” Johnson. I’m not going to spoil this short video by giving you a synopsis regarding his life so what I will say is that his “Rags to Riches” story just goes to show you that where you start in life does not determine how you’ll finish. 

Image result for break barriers quotesPeople may laugh at your beginning, but when you keep pushing forward towards your goals and start to obtain them, such people will stop laughing and start gazing at you in disbelief. Yes, you will face periods in your life where you will feel like a failure, you’ll feel depressed and discouraged when you find yourself in a disadvantaged position and most likely you’ll feel like throwing in the towel and even suicidal; however, the moment you start to think that “Enough is Enough! I want out of this mess!” — that’s when your mind has shifted into the realm where you want to break the barrier. That is when you start to chart the course of your life to no longer settle for less than God’s best. That is when you start to believe that there must be more to your life than this.

Image result for break barriers quotes

The moment you can visualize past your current circumstances is when you have allowed God to intervene and chart your course into the realm of barrier-breaking FAITH. You don’t have to be a Christian to understand this principle. In fact, many non-believers operate in this realm even without knowing God. So why is it that as believers, we fail to do the same? Do we not know Who is inside of us?

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Image result for break barriers quotesThe one thing I also need to stress, is that sometimes as Christians we can be needy and discontent when we simply expect things to fall into our laps like manna from Heaven. Gone are the days when things used to simply fall into our laps (Children of Israel) – Old Testament Era. God is now all about FAITH WITH WORKS! – New Testament Era. We all should know the scriptures that say: “Faith without works is dead….” (James 2:14James 2:18James 2:20James 2:26); however, Jesus also emphasizes that we also need to have faith to believe for what we seek otherwise our faith would be of no effect.

Matthew 13:57-58 NKJV

57 So they were offended at HimBut Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Funny Eve 5

“Don’t cry me a river if you’re lazy.” – God

So think about this when you pray; if you don’t believe God for whatever it is that you seek, then you won’t receive it. It’s as simple as that. Don’t cry a river to God over something that you don’t even have the faith the size of a mustard seed to receive that which you yearn for.

Faith is the key to obtaining the things you want. If you won’t work your faith out, then don’t expect to receive anything like a “hand me down” out of sheer laziness. Learn to put your faith into action and see how God will manifest your desired results. I pray that the video I’ve posted here today will bless your spirit. God Bless You Everybody 😀 !

Thought – The First Level of Creation

Hello Peeps!

I have another motivational video for you today created by Video Advice.  It’s only 10 mins long but I guarantee that it will bless your spirit today 🙂 . I think that if we look at our current selves, we have to wonder – What would our conversation with God be like?

Funny Eve 6
No one can stop me! I’m going to keep going because I’m an Energizer battery! lol 😀 !

I highly doubt that He’d criticize you and look down on you regarding where you currently are in life. However, I do believe that He’d show you where your strength and weaknesses lie in terms of your current mentality, your character, and your present personality in order for you to draw some level of introspection on what you must do to improve thyself. Words have creative power so the things that we confess in our daily lives become a part of our reality. We need to make sure that what we confess out of our mouths builds us and does not aim to destroy us. Many of these motivational videos talk about: “keeping on going” and “trying and trying again” and “Never giving up” which is Biblical advice if you ask me. You can’t lose until you have accepted defeat as a way of life. Defeat is not part of your DNAPERSEVERANCE is. We are all made in the image and likeness of God, and therefore, we cannot lose if we have God on our side. He designed each and everyone of us to be extraordinary.

Why do I say this? Look at and meditate on this following verse of Scripture: 

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

The question is, does your soul know this very well?…

Proverbs 23:7 [Full Chapter]

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.

Whatever you believe in your heart to be true, will ultimately become your reality. If you think you’re stupid, then you will be. If you think you won’t amount to anything, then you won’t. If you think that nobody loves you then you’ll be critical of anyone that tries to get near you. Whatever you believe in your heart will transform into actions that you will perform as a deed. Therefore, it is very important to guard your heart and your mind and to meditate on things that are of a good report.

Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Also remember this key piece of Scripture:

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

We all have the ability to keep on pressing forward towards the goal when we claim that being a winner is part of our DNAVictory is part of our DNA, and Overcoming is part of our DNA. Because we are made in the image and likeness of God, we cannot lose with God on our side. We may face setbacks, trials and errors, but when you choose to try and try again, you will surely succeed when you learn the art of PERSEVERANCE. Perseverance will help you to obtain your victories in life so Don’t Ever Give Up!

Also remember this key piece of Scripture:

O Deathwhere is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?

Image result for guard your heart quotes

Death has no victory because Jesus defeated the power of Death at the Cross; and therefore, absolutely No One has the ability to quash your dreams, quash your hopes, quash your aspirations and negate the way forward in your life with their cynicism and critical attitudes. Block out the negative noise and the false flattery that inflates your ego and tune in to the right frequency with the types of people that tell you: “You can make it”; “Keep going!”; “You can do this!”; “You’re nearly there!”; “Go for it!”; and “Don’t Give Up!”. Surround yourself with people that exude such positive energy that they fuel that fire of faith that you need to have in yourself to push forward. Don’t hang around those that have dimmed their lights of hope in themselves and only have negative things to say to you because they lack vision.

Proverbs 29:18 [Full Chapter] – Amplified Bible

Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained; But happy and blessed is he who keeps the law [of God].

They are the types of people that defer your hopes and dash your dreams. Surround yourself with people that encourage you to keep on pressing forward until you’ve attained your desired goal.

Think of these scriptures in reflection of that: 

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I pray that as you watch this video, it will ignite your spirit with hope and you will be fueled with positive energy to keep pursuing your dreams no matter what setbacks you may face – focus on the goal and you’ll get there. God bless You Everybody! 😀

How Successful People Think

Hello Peeps!

Well, like I said before, I seem to be on a motivational videos type of mood. People tend to idolize or admire others that they wish they could be and I don’t think that that’s a bad thing in and of itself; however, there comes a point where we need to move past the idolization and admiration and focus on what it is that we need to do in order to change and be successful.

Image result for adversity quotesReviewing someone’s journey to success can give you a scope of what adversities lie ahead to which they had to face and combat in order to obtain the results they managed to achieve and receive. On the other hand, we must note that their journey is “their journey” and not necessarily “yours” to follow. As people, we can learn from other people’s trials and challenges; however, we must not focus solely on the trials that they had to face when in pursuit of happiness and success, but we should focus on “their mindset” during the trials that they endured to the end. Whatever it is that you meditate on a daily basis, your mind is sure to follow. If you believe yourself to be a “failure”, then everything you do will contribute to that meditation of failure. If you believe yourself to be an overachiever, then everything you do will contribute to that mediation of success. The Bible even tells us that how we think about ourselves determines who we choose to be if you think of this verse of scripture in the Book of Proverbs:

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.

Image result for guard your heart quotes

Image result for guard your heart quotesIt’s one thing to guard your mind and ears from any meditation of discouragement, fear and failure, but it is your heart that you must guard above all else, because what you bind to your heart as TRUTH, is what will ultimately become your reality. Your heart has the ability to embrace whatever you receive as “Your Truth” from what you hear through your ears and what you meditate on through your mind; so guard your heart above all else and remember to do what is says in these following verses of Scripture:

Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Joshua 1:8 [Full Chapter]

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Working Through Adversity

Hello People!

I have another motivational video for you today to bless your spirit. I think I’m on a motivational trip right now. When I think about adversity, I am reminded of what my grandparents went through to raise 3 kids and 2 grandchildren (5 kids in total). They went through hardship and ridicule from those that assumed that they were “losers” that wouldn’t amount to anything. My Grandmother was a nurse and my Grandfather was a teacher, a principal (headmaster) of a school, who later on became an Ambassador to my country. When he became an Ambassador, those that used to ridicule the family during the painful years of their lives all of a sudden wanted to be associated with them. It’s so funny who comes crawling out of the woodworks to try and re-enter your life when God elevates you. Always remember those that weren’t for you then when you were down and out and struggling, because from what I’ve seen and experienced, such people won’t necessarily be for you even when you do start to prosper. That is why you need to develop discernment on your journey when you do start to prosper. People can make you and break you in this life, but ultimately, it is your current mindset and how you face such adversities that will determine your end.

Your starting point doesn’t determine your end. Just because a person may start out disadvantaged or poor, doesn’t mean that their end will remain the same. A seed thrown in a desert may not flourish but once it’s planted in the right soil, it can grow to the full potential of what it was meant to be, and that is to be a tree. You may have started life in a desert, but you can move from your current condition and change the outcome of your destiny when you decide that where you are isn’t enough. Pursue people that don’t have a “desert” mentality… Pursue people that can groom you into a “forest”. Such people know what nutrients of information you need in order to thrive and prosper. In some cases, you may have been a seed that landed in a desert, but the winds can carry you to the right environment when you allow yourself to reach out to those that are willing to carry you out of your desert environment to thrive in the right environment for your destiny.

Image result for adversity quotesIt’s funny how the people that see little of who you really are want to be a part of your life when you elevate from their expectations. I always believe in marking those that see little of you to be people you keep to the curbside of your life and for those that truly believed in you even when you were down and out, these are the types of people you should remember when you reach that place of elevation in your life because these are the types of people that won’t flatter your ego. They tend to be brutally honest with you, they encourage you and are able to perceive the true level of your potential and greatness that already resides inside of you, and are the keys you need in your life to draw out that greatness. If you surround yourself with people that can’t see beyond problems, then you’ll always remain stuck where you are. If you surround yourself with people that are visionaries who see beyond the problem(s) and find solutions to such problems, you will always be able to break the barriers that seemed to be unbreakable and become a problem-solver worth pursuing. Jesus is a problem-solver and He first demonstrated this capability that we all have through His first miracle at the Wedding in Cana.

Water turned into Wine

Jesus’ first miracle was at a wedding. It wasn’t at a farm, it wasn’t while tending sheep, it wasn’t at a synagogue, it wasn’t even in the marketplace, it was at a wedding in Cana (John 2-1-12). I believe that the significance of this first miracle taking place at a wedding was to mark the significance that God places in His relationship with The Church that is often referred to as “The Bride of Christ”. The wine at the wedding had already been consumed and depleted by the guests who were already in attendance at the wedding; however, when Mary, mother of Jesus requested Jesus to do something about it, He did do something about it even though He had told her that it wasn’t His time yet (John 2:4). Although Mary disregarded Jesus’ comment, Jesus in His graciousness took six stone jars that were filled with water (each jar holding 20-30 gallons or 75 to about 115 liters) that were used for ceremonial washing (John 2:6) and filled each jar to the brim with wine. I believe that the miracle of the wine at the wedding of Cana event foreshadowed and symbolized the Blood of Jesus that was going to be spilled at the Cross, which would later become known as the Blood of the New Covenant between the sons of Men and God.

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Don’t get angry at those that don’t see your true value. 

Jesus became the sacrifice that would restore our relationship with God and it is through His blood that we are restored in right-standing before the Father. So for today, no matter how many mistakes you’ve ever made in your life, the Power of the Blood of Jesus is able to wash over your sins, your past mistakes and cause you to overcome every hindrance, obstacle, or weight that keeps you from reaching your full potential as a Child of God. When you have the mind of Christ, you can achieve whatever it is that you put your mind to. Most of what these motivational speakers say in our day, are in alignment to what is already written in the Bible. So my prayer for all of us is to remember that even when people ridicule you and look down on you on the basis of your current circumstances and define you by your present status, always remember that God has already defined you as someone who can succeed, who can overcome, who can endure, who can persevere, who can press forward towards the goal and not look back, who can win, who can be an over-achiever, who can do exceedingly, abundantly and above all you could ever ask or think or imagine. God already knows your end from your beginning.

Do not let the short-sighted naysayers of your life define who you presently are when they haven’t even got the correct lenses or the revelation to see where you will be far up ahead in your God-driven, purpose-driven destiny. 

Always remember, that God knows your end from your very beginning and you must run with that revelation rather than running on another man’s criticism to define who you currently are. We are all destined for greatness so remember that as you watch this video. I pray that it blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀
