“We can complain that the rose has bushes, have thorns or we can complain that thorns have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln

Like the thorns are always parts of the rose flower, so are problems part of life. There isn’t a life without some form of problem or the other. But some of us have made it habitual to complain about our problems. We are always seeking friends, family and church to complain to. In my country today many people are always seeking for prophets and “prayer warriors” to eliminate problems, failing to understand that a problem free person is a dead person.

A Message Of Hope

My child, I have a message for you today. Let me whisper it in your ear so any storm clouds that may arise will shine with glory, and the rough places you may have to walk will be made smooth. It is only four words, but let them sink into your inner being, and use them as a pillow to rest your weary head.“This is my doing.”

Have you ever realized that whatever concerns you concerns Me too? “For whoever touches you touches the apple of [my] eye”(Zech.2:8).“You are precious and honored in my sight” (Isa. 43:4).Therefore it is My special delight to teach you.

I want you to learn when temptations attack you, and the enemy comes in “like a pent-up flood” (Isa.59:19),that “this is my doing” and that your weakness needs My strength, and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.

Are you in difficult circumstances, surrounded by people who do not understand you, never ask your opinion, and always push you aside? “This is my doing.” I am the God of circumstances. You did not come to this place by accident—you are exactly where I meant for you to be.

Have you not asked Me to make you humble? Then see that I have placed you in the perfect school where this lesson is taught. Your circumstances and the people around you are only being used to accomplish My will. Continue reading A Message Of Hope

There is an End!

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.” – Proverbs 23:18 (KJV)

Oh how I particularly like this scripture, especially the King James Version. The same way every product released and sold in the market has an expiry date, or a shelf life; a day or time when it’s no longer considered effective, or functional, God is saying to somebody today; There is going to be an end to that shame, that reproach, that challenge you’re facing . It doesn’t matter how long you’ve had that trouble, whatever has a beginning has an end. Maybe you’ve been sick for a while, you’ve done all things medically right, but that sickness won’t go, and it’s threatening your peace, your family, your finances, but God says, I am going to put an end to it. Or maybe you have a family member who has become a concern to you, you’ve done everything in your power to straighten him up, but your efforts don’t seem to be going anywhere, God says there is an end, he or she is going to turn out fine.

It doesn’t matter how many years you’ve been stuck, it doesn’t matter how many people have written you off, God says I am going to put an end to that, and change your story. Have you been expecting a break, a job, a new life, or maybe you are behind on your payments, and you are expecting something to happen? No matter what it is you are hoping, expecting, God says your expectations shall not be cut off. You shall not hope in vain. Don’t settle yet, don’t give up just yet. Believe! All things are possible to him that believes. Continue reading There is an End!
