Knowing Jesus Christ

​Knowing God without knowing our own wretchedness makes for pride. Knowing our own wretchedness without knowing God makes for despair. Knowing Jesus Christ strikes the balance because he shows us both God and our own wretchedness. -Blaise Pascal

Use gentle answers to turn away wrath

Unborn children matter

Live not for evil but rather for good

Live not for bad things,
Live not for thoughts vile.
Live not for wicked wings,
Live not for an unholy smile.

Live for the Lord God daily,
Live for Christ Jesus in truth.
Live for the Gospel truly,
Live for abundantly bearing fruit.

Live not for vanity,
Live not for timidity.
Live not for speaking profanity,
Live not for spiritual rancidity.

Live to see the glory of God,
Live to see his Holy face.
Live to see Christ rule with his rod,
Live to see the kingdom grow in grace.

A Deliverance Prayer For Those Unable To Clear Job Interviews

Disclaimer : This deliverance prayer is NOT for those UNWILLING to apply for jobs NOR for those who AVOID working altogether.

 

O Lord God have mercy on me in my afflictions and troubles. Help me to get the right job, and the right wages, at the right time in the Holy Name of your only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Dear Holy Spirit, enlighten my future with the light of Christ and cause all darkness to flee from it.

By the blood of Jesus, I cancel and revoke every curse that was ever put upon me, which has been preventing me from getting the job I need. Whether I brought these curses upon myself, knowingly or unknowingly, by my fault or those of others, I right now ask for freedom from all curses. Holy Spirit intercede for me, that the Lord God will look on my affliction, and that the Lord will requite me good for all curses that were put upon me till this day.

Without a doubt and without wavering, I believe that you O Lord God cause everything to work together for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. Grant me the knowledge and grace to face each job interviewer in all excellence and understanding. Help me to prepare well and present myself well in the interviews. And also that I’m actually called for the interview, with my job applications being viewed with good favour, first in the eyes of God and then in the eyes of those who will be meeting me.

Grant me success from the highest heavens, for the job interview that I will appear for, so that I speak of your goodness towards me O Lord God, in the land of the living. This is so that you name be glorified forever and ever. Amen and amen!

 

 

 

Do not wait for a special call to prayer when you know there are people in trouble

When you hear, see or read of people in trouble please do not get into legalism at any point. For many good works have been prevented from ever happening only because people preferred to live legalistically. The Holy Scriptures tell us clearly; do not quench the Spirit. So never let legalism prevent you from doing what is holy and acceptable to the Lord God. One such good work is to pray for people who are in trouble or danger.

“If you feel that you can follow a few little rules or some clever gimmicks to make you a mature Christian, then you have fallen into a subtle trap of legalism.” ( J. Vernon McGee)

If you know of an impending hurricane or blizzard coming to destroy people in any place, then pray for their safety right away. You are not sinning by praying for their welfare. Never get into a mindset in which you will pray only if you get a special call to prayer at church by the preacher.

I’m not talking about bypassing your leaders in Christ. I’m talking about what you are to do in faith whether your leaders tell you or not. You don’t need a special nudge by your pastor to brush your teeth regularly, you’d know its right to do it anyway. You don’t need a call out to feed your children daily, you know its your duty anyway. You don’t need to be begged by your boss to come to office everyday, you know that going by the rules is expected anyway. Hope you understand that the same logic applies to interceding for others in need.

On another note, there are some people who need a special announcement to pray because they are clueless on what to pray at all. Such people too don’t need to be stuck that loop forever. For the Lord God is not impressed by lofty words and shouts without faith, but rather by prayers said with a humble and contrite heart. You can pray like this; “O Lord Jesus save these people from all harm and danger for the sake of your Holy Name.  Amen”. Or you are free to pray in a simple way but do remember to pray in faith and purity at all times.

Christ be with you as you pray for those in need of healing and deliverance in the land of the living!

 

Are you available when God is looking?

Avoid the Sin of Divination

Are all dreams and wishes truly to sought after as godly?

There are many who have great dreams. Dreams of grandeur, dreams of the next big foreign vacation, dreams of marrying the most wealthy person they can find for a spouse etc. And their dreams when achieved do not necessarily bring them the joy and fulfillment they expected. These dreamers get hurt by the fruit of their desires. Let me make it real to you; living in grandeur is what Herod had but in the end he was eaten by worms for not giving glory to God, there are people in big credit card debts as they cannot payoff their bills after their foreign vacations, while some much to their dismay realize that the rich one they married is also a hung miser. If only they had checked if their dreams tally up with wisdom or not. No human wisdom but the wisdom of God!

Please do read Luke 12:16-21 which says : 16 And he [Jesus] told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; 17 and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

If your dreams and aspiration do not involve giving glory to the Lord God what if all of that is taken away? What would it matter in the after life that you only focused on vain ambitions for selfish reasons?

In your dreams and desires always seek to understand where they finally lead you. I’m not talking about the part where you achieve them all. It’s what happens after you are done with your achievement. Does it give you peace in your heart? Does it make you a difficult person to deal with, especially with your family and friends? Does it make you any more wise at all? Does it make you more anxious or timid? Does it keep you away from God? If the answer is yes to any one of these questions, you need to seriously consider if your dreams and desires are consistent with the wisdom of God in his written Word. You may just have to change your motives or change your course of action or totally give it up before that dream brings you nothing but heart break.  This heart break may not immediately come but it does eventually come. So do be diligent about these matters of the heart and spirit!

Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life (Proverbs 4:23)
