Let God Direct Your Path


Hi Everybody!
I’m back from vacation and I  just wanted to give praise to God for making it the best I’ve ever had in a long while. Three weeks away from the noise and the distractions in my life have led me to feel so rejuvenated that I feel convinced that this year will be an amazing, dynamic, transforming and innovative year.

Everything from this point on is based on perspective. As I was praying to God during my holidays, the Holy Spirit showed me that a lot of things we go through in life are based on one of two perspectives; (1) It’s either we do things or experience things from our own perspective; or (2) we view our circumstances from God’s perspective.


Ask yourself, in light of where you are right now, how are you seeing your world? Is your world view coming from your short-sighted carnal lens? Or are you allowing God to help you see clearly using His set of supernatural lenses?


The way in which you perceive your world today is the way in which you will choose to function in it.


Most of our reactions to situations are based on our perception of a situation. If you have a negative view of things, you will function with that negative under-tone in all that you do. If you have a positive view of the world, then you will function with that positive tone in all that you do. Many a time, we like to take things into our own hands and do things our own way, but lately, God has been showing me that it’s time we give the Holy Spirit some room to function in our lives since it is not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6).


Today’s post comes from a contemplation of this scripture from:
Proverbs 3:6 – In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

How many of us take the time to pray before we make a decision about something which even includes even the smallest of things in your tasks (i.e. shopping)? Many people want to hear from the Holy Spirit but they don’t want to include the Holy Spirit in their daily affairs. The Holy Spirit talks to us everyday, but it is up to us to take the time to make room for Him to voice His instructions. If you want to learn to hear from the Holy Spirit, you will have to learn to obey Him when he instructs you to do something. This is how you sharpen your hearing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to YOU the Church of Jesus Christ. When you give room for the Holy Spirit to speak you will increase in your spiritual discernment and sensitivity towards the things of the spirit.


In this particular year of Divine Grace, you will have to quicken your spirit to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. Many of your struggles right now are based on acts of disobedience and lack of attention to the Holy Spirit’s voice. It may sound hard to believe, but you sit down and do an inventory of your actions and ask yourself how many times did you consult or take the time to pray before deciding to take a course of action? Be honest with yourself. In fact, I’ll be the first to put my hand up and confess that there were times that I leaped into something head first without consulting the Lord on whether or not my decision was the right course of action to take and only discovered my mistakes after-the-fact. You don’t want to move in that level of mediocrity this year.


Don’t strive to build things with your own hands (Might and Power) without consulting with the Holy Spirit this year. If you do things like that, you will be actually working against yourself and you will indeed labour in vain. The Holy Spirit wants to guide you in the right direction which requires your ability to remain attentive, patient, and obedient. If you cannot master your ability to listen and obey to simple instructions, then you will block yourself from receiving instructions that could lead you to greener pastures.


Our perception of obedience must be changed in order to move away from doing things from our own will and actively pursuing God’s will. God’s will for your life is to prosper as your souls prospers, but if  you aren’t taking the time to pay attention to him, you might just “miss the mark” Also consider that “missing the mark” is also defined as “sin“.

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soulprospers.

For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.”’

This should be your goal this year. Make it a point to seek God’s face this year and learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will guide you to people that will either show you the answer, be the answer or are a sign that you are heading in the right direction.  Learn to humble yourself and expect that your answers will come from the least likely of sources so do not judge prejudicially a book by its cover.


You want to prosper? Then focus on letting your ego step aside for a moment and give more room for the Holy Spirit to take over in your daily affairs. The more room you give to  allow the Holy Spirit to function in your life, the more you will be able to grow spiritually sensitive to hear God’s voice and incline your ears to instructions. You will avoid so much strife by learning to humble yourself to take heed to the Holy Spirit’s voice.


Some of you maybe asking, how do I hear from Him? You must first immerse yourself in the Word (the Bible) in order to know when the Lord is speaking to you. If you don’t know any of His Word, then how can you expect to learn to hear and recognize His voice in the first place?


A great analogy would be when you listen to a familiar song on the radio and you immediately know who sang the song and what the lyrics are to that song. How were you able to know who was singing if you didn’t read the lyrics, familiarize or meditate on the song? You wouldn’t be able to without doing those things, so in the same way, God instructs us to meditate on the Word of God Day and Night and to not have this Word depart from our mouths so that when we incline our ears to understanding we will be able to recognize the Holy Spirit’s voice. Make this your goal this year and seek God with all your heart, soul, and mind. God Bless your everybody.

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.

[ A Book of Remembrance ] Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

This song that I’m posting is one that I have posted before from Hillsongs United called Oceans. May this song bless your spirit today. 🙂


In Thy Name


God's NameHi Everybody,

Hope y’all are having a blessed weekend. Today, I want to post a video called “Thy Name”. 

The questions I have for your meditation today are:

Do you know who God is? Who is God to you?

Many people assume that they do many good works in His Name which make them stellar Christians in the eyes of people, but unfortunately, these same people ignore the voice of the Father (through the Holy Spirit) when He gives direction which is an act of DISOBEDIENCE.

If you are one of those that say “I have never heard the Lord say….” or “The Holy Spirit doesn’t speak to me…”, then You need to re-evaluate how you perceive yourself before the Father.

You need to have a revelation of who God is to you in order to hear what He is saying to  you in order for you to be who God wants you to be…and that is to be His child.

148663_10152093485351832_2085451673_nChildren of God are Children of obedience. Obedience is cultivated by a trust relationship. You need to Trust in the Father as the Father also has need to Trust in you.  Trust is built on Faith, and Faith comes by Hearing, and Hearing by the Word of the Lord (Romans 10:17).

Do you Trust God enough to Hear Him? Sometimes our Pride can cause us to be deaf to the Holy Spirit, but when we humble ourselves before Him and pray and seek His face, that is when we truly begin to Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to “Us” the Church as little children (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17,29; Revelations 3:6, 13, 22).  

You know the saying that goes…“When the student is ready, the master will appear”. Well, in our case…it’s different. In our case it is

“When YOU, the Child of God is ready, the Father will appear”. 

Are you ready to be what you were predestined to be? 

As Jesus is the Great Shepherd, He tells us that “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  (John 10:27).

In order to follow Jesus, we must be willing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord wants us to hear. 

God speaks to us everyday in so  many different ways. Do not put God in a box with your way of thinking. Learn to soften your heart and become sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. You can do this by meditating on the Word and acting on it by faith. When you reach out to the Father by faith, He will extend His hand to you. It’s all in His Word. He is not a man that He should lie. So reach out to Him today and learn to Hear from Him when He calls you by Name.

Scriptures to Meditate on: 

Psalm 73:28

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.
Ecclesiastes 5:1

Fear God, Keep Your Vows ] Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw nearto hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil.
James 4:8

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purifyyour hearts, you double-minded.
Numbers 23:19

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said,and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

May This video by Shiftworship Bless your Spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

Fan or Follower? – Can You Hear God’s Voice?


Hi Everybody!

So today I have another video today to get us thinking about our walk in the Lord. Being Christian doesn’t win us any medals, popularity contests or any brownie points, but it does gain us an eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when we seriously consider what it means to be a Follower. There are times when people look at me wierdly when I say I heard this and that from the Lord as if to say I’m some kind of liar…my question to them would be… Do you hear from the Lord? and if so, What have you heard from the Lord???? If not…why not?

John 10:27
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

I know when God is talking to me if He’s convicting me of a bad habit that I need to curb, or if He points out areas of Sin that I need to confess and repent about. I also Hear from Him when He gives me warnings about certain situations or about people, and I also Hear from the Lord when He tells me that He loves me. I believe in His voice through the workings of the Helper who is the Holy Spirit. I admit that there are times I ignore Him obviously because of stubborness and pride, but I know His voice because He is the Counselor of my soul. I’m not going to act like I’m a saint all the time becuase I have my own struggles to deal with and I’m not going to remain in denial of that just so I can sleep well at night. Sometimes the Lord tells me things I don’t want to hear but He loves me enough to tell me the TRUTH. The Truth isn’t always easy to swallow, but I’d rather be told the truth than swim in a pool of lies. Such a pool leads to drowning, but God always throws us the Life Jacket to pull us out of that pool of regrets with His TRUTH.

Jesus is our Saviour in every sense of the Word and that is why when we Follow Him, we must purpose to Hear Him when He talks to us through the Holy Spirit. This is how we come to reverentially Fear the name of the Lord. Sin separates us and deafens our ears but REPENTANCE sharpens our hearing and discernment as it also reconciles us to Hear attentively to what the Lord is saying to us through the Holy Spirit.

Ask yourself…Can you Hear the Lord speak to You when He tells you something through people, signs, wonders, confirmations and various other ways and methods? If God can use a Donkey to get Balaams attention (Numbers 22), God will and can use anything to get our attention, but it’s up to us to purpose to recognize when the Lord is in fact talking to us through His methods to convict our Spirit to yield to the Truth of His Word.

Everybodies relationship is different  in their walk with the Lord since some people are at different stages, but I am convinced that as we continously learn to Follow the Lord whole-heartedly, we must be able to hear His voice. If we cannot hear Him, then certain things are happening in our lives to prevent us from following our Lord Jesus Christ whole heartedly.We must really search deep and ask ourselves…why do we find it hard to follow God fully?

Check this video out and think about what it means to Follow Christ rather than being a mere Fan of Christ. Those who follow will learn to hear the Lord’s Voice and will answer to His call.  Stay Blessed Everybody!

Focusing on What’s Important – Clearing the Air in your Mind


via Shejus.deviantart.com

Day 1 of 21 Day Daniel Fast – So today my church and I have started the fast. I know some of you started on January 1 but I’ve officially started today January 3rd, 2012. I know my blogger friend Nadie is chronicling her food adventures of this fast which is amazing. She even has a great link to help people make food appropriate choices for the Fast at www.daniel-fast.com. I totally recommend checking that out for your own piece of FYI and just to encourage you with recipes that you can utilize and experiment with in alignment with this Fast. Thanks again Nadie for your post “Daniel Fast Day 1 pt 2”. Very imformative and encouraging to know that there are more people interested in doing the Fast right.

For today’s meditation I want to focus on what is important. It’s not so much that you are doing a spiritual exercise, but it’s what you gain from it. I have expectations of hearing God’s voice clearly. He talks all the time but are our ears inclined to hear what He has to say? You’ve got to ask yourself that question when you start or prepare for your meditations. Sometimes, He’ll give us rude awakenings on our habits, personalities and flaws in our character that need changing in order to walk in holiness. The thing here is, are you willing to embark on that journey to transform your current way of thinking and ways of doing things?

I find that when I meditate on the Word, God shows me things that I need to personally change in order to become a better person. Sometimes we don’t like being corrected by Him when He shows us a character flaw that we need to curb with intense enthusiasm because we like to be stuck in our ways, but that sort of defeats the purpose of the Fast now doesn’t it? In order to have your dreams become realized, you have to be prepared to receive the long awaited dream by changing the way you are now so that when you receive it, you will have the right character and frame of mind to manage the dream, maintain the dream and keep the dream alive.

Confusion can cause us to make mistakes so during your time of meditation, focus on seeking God for clarity for situations that you cannot make sense of with your own might and power. Seek God’s face even in the smallest of your affairs so that He becomes magnified in your mind that you will habitually seek His opinions on things that matter. The importance is to maintain the focus. I even ask God for direction when I’m shopping for something and believe it or not, He helps me find the items I need when I’m in search for something specific.  This is what I mean when I say seek Him even in the smallest of your affairs because once you start doing that, He will walk with you even when the largest events happen in your life. Keep Him Sovereign.

My Encouragement today is Focus on the importance of building your RELATIONSHIP with the Lord by including Him even in the smallest of your affairs so that you walk with HIM in mind everyday and at each moment. Also remember that you must always be specific in your prayer life so that you get what you ask for instead of being vague. Target prayers require specificity.

Scriptures to Meditate on:

Deuteronomy 5:33
You shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.

Deuteronomy 10:12

1 Kings 8:23
and he said: “LORD God of Israel, there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.

Psalm 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Revelation 2:7
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’

Revelation 2:17
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”’
