#Thankful

Thank you is the best prayer that anyone can say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility and understanding - Alice Walker


I want to say 'Thank You' for the last five years, It hasn't been easy, it has been productive.
I wish I could say that the production is my credit but I can't take credit for anything.

It has been the goodness, favor and the mercy of God all the way.
Congratulations to those who have it all together, you have my sincerest admiration
But I haven't had it altogether many times in the last five years, but God has.

His grace has kept me and mine and still keeps us.
I am apprehensive and yet excited about my next step in life
My confidence comes from the fact that God is leading me along His path for me

I can hear the nay sayers already
just like I heard them in 2008, they didn't stop me then, they won't stop me now.

I am just thankful to God and to everyone who came my way. I am thankful for the roles
that they played. I am thankful to my family. It is my last day and I am eternally grateful
God has shown Himself the most to me here and in spite of all the challenges
God can bring honey out of a rock or any other thing He choose to bring honey out of
I am truly in awe of God's goodness and His sovereignity

As usual, I am walking in love...
and achieving God's purpose for my life too.

Ciao!

Excited but anticipating good things ahead.

Easiest definition!!!

Faith in God is believing that He loves you and will be good to you.
-Joseph Prince
Especially for those who don't get the difficult King James definitions, this definition is easier for me to believe and not include my works and my strivings.
 We learn so much about God what he requires and all that thingy and then sometimes some one says something so simple that we are able to receive.
God is good
He does good
He takes care of me and mine irrespective of my need to feel in control
Everything is working together for my good.
Not because I am too good but because He sees Christ, God I mean, when He sees me
and nothing is withheld from me.
 

Faith is

"He who comes to come must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him" - Writer of Hebrews.

How easy these words seem to be? But how difficult they are to put into practice.
This is what the faith walk is.

If you know me well, you will know that I prowl all around social media like it is a supermarket but I am discerning in the type of content I allow into my space. I am diligent in guarding my heart.

I am reading this scripture above from somewhere in Hebrews (Go read and maybe we can share this stuff) and I see that God wants to be diligently sought.

Scripture says that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. So when I seek out God and look for His presence in my day and in the little and the big things that I do, God is well pleased. God is pleased when I can take out five minutes in my day to see what he is thinking.

One of the first beliefs I should have is that, "God is".
This should be my belief not just when I am feeling good, this should be my belief even when contrary winds are blowing. I know that, God is. I always know that God is, when I am happy and when I am sad; I still know that God is.

This is faith. This belief in the existence of God and that He rewards those who seek Him. I am not trying to do anything or get Him to do anything. I just know that He is and that He is sovereign over all and everything.

He is God.
He is.
He exists
He rewards those who diligently seek Him
He is love
He loves

This is faith!

Foundation
  • Faith, hope & Love is of God
  • I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me

New Month, New Mercies!

My dp message for the 1 November was "New Month, New Mercies.
Amazing message abi. I wrote it passively from my spirit but didn't pay much attention till @anafricandiva told me this is so inspiring.

I said thanks then I began pondering, "Theresa, were you expecting any new mercies this month or were you getting religious about the mercies of God. Guilty I was religious about it right up until the diva reminded me. I am thankful to God for His mercies and expecting more in November and December.
With people it is more blessed to give than to receive but with God, it is more blessed to receive than to give. So in this month of November my stance has changed, I am expectant of new mercies this month. Concerning my finances I receive God's will concerning me in increasing measures. I change levels by the grace of God and not the sweat of my brow.

I am led by the Spirit of God every day.

Still working on the spiritism post. It is in the book of Galatians. I will post some time during the week with scriptural reference.

Foundation scripture for me:
"I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus"

It took me ages before I could say this scripture. I used to read the bible with a sense that I did not deserve the great things I read in them. But today I read the bible with confidence.

I read the bible with confidence because I am reading about Daddy God and my brother Jesus. I am glad to belong in their family and be a partaker of divinity. I have confidence in Daddy God and I am conscious of being a joint heir in Christ.

I can't be responding like a human anymore. I have to respond like God because my Daddy God gave birth to me and made me a god. If you understand the faith walk you will understand what I am writing.

If God says you are rich, you take your position as the rich one even when your bank account is red (1 Cor 8:9). Apply the kingdom principles concerning wealth. If God says you are healed, you take the position of the healed one. If God says you are bold, you take that position by responding from your spirit (Isaiah 53, 1 Peter). If God says that He is enough, He is your God and He will help you, then you believe Him (Isaiah). If God says that you are one with Him then don't be thinking of yourself as alone, God is with You, living in you (1 Corinthians 6:17). If He says you are wise, have counsel, understanding, the fear of God (Isaiah 11), agree with Him. Don't go in the flesh, go in the Spirit.

Live renew. Live in a position where your mind is always renewed to the word of God, this faith, this living is the victory that overcomes the world.

Colossians 3 says that "If you are from above, then dwell on the things that are above"

Writing my thoughts Yay!

I am happy, truly happy
Hard work is ahead of me, but favour is also.

I have learnt to look at God through hard times
Pray and not complain or grumble
I have learnt to trust God for tomorrow
and give Him the things I cannot handle to sort out
I have had so many dreams, not so good.

But I am trusting God on this and breaking bread...
I am grateful for the speaking blood of the covenant
Jesus cut a covenant with me and that day is still my greatest.

I am blessed on all sides.
I am blessed so much it is pouring out of me
I am not perfect but then I don't want to be
I have known the fullness of God in my imperfections
Without my imperfections I may not have sought God so much
and He would have had a difficult time finding me

Through God and through the journey of my love
I have learnt about the love of God, heard about His promised
Experienced His promises, learnt to hear from God
That is a treasure that I can't say thank you enough for.

Because of my journey I have heard about that thing called 'spiritism'
I had to know what it meant because a lot of folks were confusing
the baptism of the Holy Spirit with spiritism
They are two different things, I  have spiritual reference finally
I saw it in the book of Romans or Corinthians, not sure
but it is in the bible, the word that is; and I am preparing a post.

I am thankful for the Holy Spirit's discernment and direction
Many times I could have been confused but I am thankful for the wisdom of God
that protects me and for the mercy of God that covered me and mine.

Thankful for courageous men who were able to speak the mind of God for the season and not hold back because they were embarrassed. I guess I would have been embarrassed but I am praying for courage everyday to embrace what God has for me with boldness.

I cannot be stopped, I cannot be defeated, I cannot be talked down
I have the help of the Holy Spirit and He is talking me up everyday
The more my environment tries to talk me down, the more the Holy Ghost talks me up
I have found a new Christian group that edifies me, they can't find them because
I will not be advertising them. Not everyone is my friend and I won't kid myself
So I will keep my private things private.

Peace
Joy
Love
Self control (Temperance)
Goodness
Kindness
Faith
Gentleness
Long suffering
Meekness

All these are my portion in the month of November
Against this, there is no law.
