The WORD vs words



Hello Sis,

It can be no truer that, “you don’t war with (mere) words, but The Word”.  There is absolutely nothing like a prayer warrior who only prays with mere words. Trust me, he is only in for a major exercise rather than results. You aren’t praying if you aren’t praying The Word.

The Bible says, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly....” (Col. 3:16).

Whatever it is that you desire, it is not enough to lock up yourself night and day ‘praying’ mere words. Reason is simple, The Word is His will. And His word says, “And this is the confidence we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”. As Christians, it’s time to stop making God seem as a liar and untrue to those who are without. 

I think that it is only logic to do something the right way. If we have the right way to getting results, its only wisdom to do it.

Now, I will say that, the word you have stuffed in you will not only help you pray aright but help during trying times. I will paint a simple scenario as per this. I had so many scriptures as regards a particular need I had, and so one day, while I was having my bath, I started to feel discouraged and almost completely down within a very short while. Barely 5 minutes after, a scripture sprung in my heart and immediately, my hope was revitalized.

I was baffled and it kept me wondering all day. What if I had nothing in my heart? What if I didn’t have that scripture in me? I would have gradually wallowed in discouragement till depression took over. God forbid.

Sis, what do you have in you? What you have in you is your weapon and note, it can never be taken away from you. It is your rescue. Stay with the word and have ‘it’ in you.

The WORD is your ONLY hope. Even if people give you hope and encouragement, what happens when they  are gone? You are only left with what is inside you. 

Have an amazing week loaded with testimonies for you!

Lots of love,
Your Sis

As They Went

  Dear Beautiful One, I trust that you are well and that this post meets you in great spirits.  Some time ago, I had a task at work that seemed very convoluted. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, but as I started, it became clearer what I needed to do and how I needed to go about it. I have come to  realise  that one of the most significant milestones one could ever deal with is starting and because the enemy knows this, he tries to keep us from starting. Keeps us from starting to obey God or cultivating the right attitude or association.    This and other similar occurrences made me begin meditating on the power of starting.  Often  we are faced with so many undaunted decisions and uncertainties and get conflicted about the aftermath of a decision even before we begin. Frankly, we will never know what lies ahead if we never start.  So  the best way to know what lies ahead is to start. Start from where you are. Clarity comes from doing. My pastor usually buttresses this point

DEALING WITH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Dear Sisters, I trust God that you and yours are doing well.  Before now, I would b ea t myself up each time a negative thought crosses my mind. This led me to do a lot of meditation on the power of thoughts and how to take charge of them. Of the many things I have now come to understand is that: negative thoughts in themselves are not bad. I know that sounds weird but stay with me, let me explain myself. Allowing these thoughts to remain and control us is where the issue lies.  It reminds me of the analogy of temptation versus sin. It is okay to be tempted, but it is not okay to sin.  When I was meditating on this, I read a devotional that week that reiterated that dwelling on bad thoughts is what causes  believers to fall. For the purpose of context, not all negative thoughts are 'fornication' or 'adultery' related; sometimes, it is not doing the will of the Father. Peter is a good example here when he said Christ would not wash his feet (John 13:8) and when he reprim

THERE IS MORE!

Hello Beautiful, Happy new year! It’s been a while I wrote to you, I trust that you are doing well.  How were the festive celebrations? Pleasant, I hope, except for the part of dealing with the extra pounds gained from the plenty food. 😊 It’s a few days into the new year, and I could not think of a better time to reconnect with you, my sisters. As the year 2021 ended, I was in a place where I did not want the year to ‘finish’. Why you may ask, well, it is because God blew my mind in 2021 – the year was heaven on earth for me – God’s favour was evident in all I did, and it felt so ‘sweet’. Everything that has a beginning must have an ending, so the year was bound to end regardless of my multiple testimonies. And that it had to end sort of began to make me feel unexpectant for 2022. Weird right? I wondered why too, mainly because the testimonies I experienced in 2020 I did not see coming or technically ask for them – it was just God honouring me.  So towards the end of 2021, I deliberat
