WE ARE CHRIST'S FRAGRANCE...

The Bible says we are the aroma (fragrance) of Christ. Let's spread that fragrance around!

2 Corinthians 2:15, : For we are to God the aroma of Christ, among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

The battle belongs to The Lord!

Just because God is silent doesn't mean He hasn't heard or seen.
"He will arise as at Mt.Perazim & be stirred as in the valley of Gibeon....to do His work, His Awesome work, and bring to pass His act, His unusual work!"Isaiah 28:21
We need to not #giveup but #holdon in faith to see God move!
At The Valley of Gibeon, God fought on Joshua's side (Joshua 10:1-14) & at Mt.Perazim, God fought on David's side (2 Samuel 5:20)
He is the same yesterday, today and forever and promises to fight our battles too.
He is a #PromiseKeeper and sure never lost a battle.

Turn my eyes away....

🌾As mobiles get smarter & TV has the 'world's best' entertainment in one's fingertips, the devil who is the "ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient (Ephesians 2:2", seems to have captivated the hearts, eyes of many to be fixed on all he dishes out to keep even the so called 'Children of God' hooked, addicted to games, serials & shows. 
🌾By doing so the little devil is happy he has turned the eyes & hearts of many that was once fixed on Yahweh and His Word!
One can now sit for hours playing games, watching shows on TV, back to back that at the end of the day is too tired to talk to God, read His Word. 
🌾Our walk with God and talking to Him and worshiping Him is not just a one day affair but sometimg we do daily.
How far we have turned away from God!
Sigh!
His heart sure breaks 😢
Who is our first love?
🌾Time to set back our life in order and redeem our time!
The Bible says in James 4:7, "Submit yourselves therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” 
🌾Let's resist the devil and his works designed to take us away from God.The Devil let's go only when compelled. We are given the power to resist him.
Let's not be ignorant of Satan's plans.
2 Corinthians 2:11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
🌾Our one and only enemy the Devil, is on the prowl to steal, kill and destroy,
He has nothing good in mind...
🌾Let us be careful, watch what we watch and get back to our first love!
May God turn our eyes away from worthless things that take way so much of our precious time!

Be blessed...

We have a short time...

#fact "A man who sleeps 8 hrs a day and lives to be 75 yrs has actually spent 1/3rd of his life sleeping."
And other than this 8 hrs of sleep, how much time we waste doing, seeing and reading things that do not help us or edify us in anyway.
At the end of the day we finally have no time for quiet time with God, prayer and Bible reading or this is just a quick affair.
It's said "Time" and "Tide" waits for no man.
May God help us to use every moment wisely!
Another day ends....
Good night...

A Prayer for September

 
 
blast_frame4fleur.jpg
Cooler nights & crisper days, that's what Autumn brings.
As Golden leaves crunch beneath our footsteps, Holy God, remind us that this is time for letting go.
Help us drop our grudges, hurts and sorrows as the lordly maple drops it's flaming leaves.
Bless us as we shed which is no longer needed.
From "Guideposts"
Blessed September!
A

New Day....New Hope...


This is a new day and it comes loaded with hope!
I know that we all face challenges in life. They are real, often times difficult and tiresome. They can sap us of our strength when we let them consume us.
After a long walk in darkness, even a ray of light gives us hope.
Time and seasons do and will change!
Just need to hold on in faith!
Passing through a difficult season?
May our Lord give us grace to not give up but persevere and praise Him through our trials and lamentations?
It happens in the Psalms all the time.
It happened with Job, and with Paul!
Better things are yet to come!
Have a blessed weekend.
🎉 Isaiah 61:7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore, in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.
