SUPPORT SYSTEM!

God has given us so many good gifts and one of the best gift he has given us is friendship. God never planned for us to be loners he wants us to be surrounded by health and good relationships . He wants us to be surrounded by people who will shower us with love, support care and kindness . While we don’t pick what we wish to go through we pick who to go through it with. God wants us to have a strong support system.

Life is not like a game of Tennis. I don’t know if you know that in tennis coaching during a match is not allowed and it can result into a penalty. In Tennis when you are playing you are expected to encourage yourself, correct yourself and see everything by yourself but this is not how God designed our life to be . We must live life like boxers where after a round we go in a corner where people in our support system dress our wounds , encourage us, correct us and give us advise. Unfortunately most of us have being living a life of Tennis because of weak support systems.

Luke 23:55-56

[55]The women who had come with [Jesus] from Galilee followed closely and saw the tomb and how His body was laid.

[56]Then they went back and made ready spices and ointments (perfumes). On the Sabbath day they rested in accordance with the commandment.

Luke 24:1-2

[1]BUT ON the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready.

[2]And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb,

When we look at these women who first knew about the resurrection of Christ they were a strong support system. Imagine in this crisis while the disciples were scattered these women from Galilee were still together and were ready without fear to give Jesus a proper burial. The first thing I noticed that made their friendship strong is that their relationship had a common foundation all of them had their ground on Christ . These women’s friendship was based on the right thing because they were brought together by Jesus. What has brought you and your friends together? On which ground is your friendship founded? Trust me if you want to have a strong support system it must be based on the right thing!

When you look at these women they travelled from Galilee to Jerusalem (a 70 miles journey ) this journey use to take about 6 days it doesn’t take any friend to travel this much just to go and see Jesus! These women had one thing in common all of them were healed by Jesus. Jesus was the common thing amongst themselves. Even when they went to Galilee they went to see Jesus. Now look at these women after they found out Jesus was crucified in the middle of a crisis, they were still together. It takes a strong support system to remain intact even after a crisis!

Imagine having a support system that will rally with you in the middle of a storm . A support system that you will get vulnerable and honest to, knowing they will offer you aid. A support system that will share faith and strength with you. Have you ever been in a situation where you have no faith and strength but the because of the faith and strength people around you have you get charged up ? Imagine having a collective faith and strength from a group of friends who are in your support system?

Imagine being honest and vulnerable to friends who won’t use you ugly truth against you? How strong is your support system?

LET THE DIRT DO ITS WORK!

When a farmer is preparing to plant his crop he makes sure everything is in place, the seeds must be ready, the weather conditions must be favourable, the soil must be rich ect. Now once he plants his crops, they come a point where he has no power to make the seed grow but instead he waits for the soil(dirt) to do its work . Have you ever been in a situation where you have done all you can do but you’ve reached a point where you have no means or to power to change anything but wait on the Lord? This is for you 😊

When the seed is in the soil and the dirt is doing its work it’s invisible and for the people watching it looks insignificant. What dirt are you going through today? How much harm has the dirt done to you ? I am sure the dirt has made it look that you are insignificant to human eyes, but remember we don’t move by sight but by faith . The dirt is a hard place because you don’t know how, nevertheless it’s not a big deal when you know who! God is looking for people who don’t know how but know who,So they can fully depend on him . There’s a part we play once we reach where we can’t make it rain, LET THE DIRT DO ITS WORK!

Have you noticed how the greatest work is done when the dirt is doing its work and not when the farmer is working? Even when the plant develops it’s the dirt(soil) that holds it , once it’s removed from the dirt before harvest it dies prematurely . The farmer scatters but the soil produces. I don’t know what dirt you are going through today but trust me most of your progress will be made there in the dirt ! And after the dirt has done its work you will gleam sparkle and dazzle!🌚

When Jesus was about to be crucified to defeat the power of SIN and DEATH he was insulted, broken, wounded, mocked even left naked but he allowed all this to happen to him because he knew the dirt had to do its work . He would have called Angels to stop them but he didn’t because he knew the dirt had a role to play. He went as far as sleeping in the grave for 3 days why? He wanted the dirt to completely do its work .And after the dirt had worked you and me found our salvation!

Now the greatest temptation when the dirt is doing its work is to give up because the stage looks insignificant to our sight . But I am here to tell you keep sowing you don’t have to know how but who! Let the *Disappoints*, *Impossibilities*, *Rejection*and *Troubles* Produce it’s fruits which are better than the Dirt. LET THE DIRT DO ITS WORK!

#NOVEMBERISMINE 👑

Mark 4:26-29
[26]And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground,
[27]And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases–he knows not how.
[28]The earth produces [acting] by itself–first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
[29]But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the sickle, because the harvest stands ready.

#NOPORNOVEMBER

Porn like most Addictions is as a result of Condemnation. The cycle of addiction bondage has kept many captive . It’s serious that more people view porn sites that Facebook twitter and Instagram combined . This is a very sad statistic and need to be taken seriously.

The bondage of Sin starts with temptation: you are on Facebook and from no where a Porn ad pops up ! Then trust in the flesh; you say let me check this out I will only do it once and I will never try.Then Sin: You mind yourself thirst for more and you keep watching as porn affects your brain to check for more and new . Finally condemnation; You feel unworthy before God and not good enough what do you do when you get tempted you give in again because you feel you are already messed up!

Instead of trusting in your flesh why not flee away from sexual temptations like Joseph. The flesh is weak never trust it . When you accidentally find yourself on a Porn site immediately close it delete it and unfilled anything that might lead you back . Trust in God’s word “flee away from youthful desires” never trust your flesh please flee!

Finally condemnation don’t allow the devil to play mind games with you. You are justified, the righteousness of GOD IN CHRIST, holy not because of your works but because you are born again and have faith in Jesus and his finished work on the cross! Nothing can change this or separate you from the love of God not even watching Porn. Let’s not make porn bigger than God’s grace and Jesus blood to wash away sin!

I am super super happy about this month , thank God he has brought me this far so I can extremely enjoy this month . I have possessed November it’s my month . As I am liberated from my own fears my presence will automatically liberate others.😇

Psalm 91:7
[7]A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.

Joel 2:25-26
[25]And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten–the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you.
[26]And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.

My deepest fear is not that I will be inadequate my deepest fear is that I will be too powerful beyond measure!

WHY ARE YOU DATING?

One secret, you need to make a standard for yourself and guard your heart when it comes to dating relationships. This standard is asking yourself “why am I dating or why do I wish to date ? Why does the person I wish to date , want to date? Be very honest with yourself and if the answer is not marriage don’t date!

You can’t be ready for dating if you are not ready for marriage. It’s not possible that’s all ! Otherwise you are dating for what? For Fun? If you want to have fun get a hobby, listen to music, play video games , go for movies, buy pizza get swimming lessons if you want to have fun go ride a roller coaster . YOU DON’T USE ANOTHER PERSON’S HEART FOR FUN!

You are dating to know yourself? Ask people around you what kind of a person you are especially when it comes to relationships. Ask your friends, close friends, relatives and associates, Monitor yourself daily, get intentional about finding out who you are. YOU DON’T USE ANOTHER PERSON’S HEART TO FIND WHO YOU ARE!

You are dating because you want to feel whole, complete and loved? Accept Jesus as your personal lord and savior, Go read your Bible , ask the holy spirit to reveal to you how much he loves you, count the blessings in your life , pray to God, worship God because only him can make you whole . A person can’t make you whole that’s God’s job. YOU DON’T USE ANOTHER PERSON’S HEART TO FEEL WHOLE, COMPLETE AND LOVED!

You are dating to fit in? Stop trying to prove anything to people, stay away from social acceptance tasks, stop forcing people to accept you ,stop trying to get love from People who don’t even love themselves. How can they offer something they don’t have? YOU DON’T USE ANOTHER PERSON’S HEART TO FIT IN!

‘IF ONLY’

She sang like a bird

Had a voice like you never heard

Sang every Sunday, choir rehearsal on Monday

with hopes that someday she would be somebody

she did spiritual acrobats in Soprano

The way she would jump from high to low and she always sang with soul

There was no note that she could not reach

She would start low and then wind to the peak

If only her heart for God was as rich as her singing

If only her voice wasn’t all that she was bringing

If only she could reach for her maker like she reaches for notes

that can’t in the end saver her

If only she was as spiritual as the songs she sang

-Sequoia. C

I hope you are reminded too 😊
