Faith

Have you ever been helpless in life? Where it seems like all your dependable source of withdrawing strength and help has disappeared.  Well the good news is that you are not alone, I am helpless too.  Being helpless in the presence of God is a great place to be because you know that God is your Source and Helper.  To receive help from God you have to acknowledge in all honesty and transparency that you are helpless.  Therefore circumstances and situations would occur to test your ability to lean onto God the Author and Finisher of your faith

I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth Psalm 122:1-2

Do not focus on your problems or dilemma but lift up your eyes and look up to God who will always make a way where there seems to be no way.  For every challenge there is an opportunity for God to manifest Himself beyond your expectations. Sometimes God would allow you to utilize all your opportunities to a point of helplessness so you can learn to trust and depend completely on Him.  Once again whether it is the marriage crises or problems at work. Maybe you are just about to be evicted or your property repossessed. Could it be that you are at the point of hopelessness the last but stop to aborting your dreams and ambitions?  Whatever it is God is always on time, He turns up at the right time so do not give up on God because He has not given up on you.

At every point of being helpless in His presence, I have learnt to cry out for help and acknowledge that I truly and desperately need God’s help.  In intercessory prayer and confessing God as my Helper, Source and Provider, He hears my cry and intervenes on my behalf for His namesake

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

Waiting on God for your needs and desires of your heart to be met requires trusting God and depending completely on Him to renew your strength as you take those steps of faith with overflowing expectations.  If God handed power and control over to you for one second, He knows what you would do. This time, pass the control switch to God the Author and Finisher of your faith for Him to take total control.

Being helpless in His presence means crucifying your flesh, passions and desires to enter into a new level of relationship where you enquire of Him for the next step.  Do not try to figure it all out, communicate in dialogue with God on what to do next, how to overcome that situation that is weighing you down.  God loves you so much that He wants to know how you are feeling today as you let go from an open transparent heart.

 

 

 

At last, after years of procrastination and self doubt, I can truly say that I have overcome my fears and positioning myself in the place God had preordained and predestined for my life. Looking back in reflection, it is more than three years since the desire to publish a book has been on my heart.

My post on being on a journey on the 23rd January 2013,  expresses my utmost desires  Just to share a bit of my plans this year, presently I am writing a book which will be revealed at a later date.  It has been quite challenging for me because I have postponed it for a very long time but now is the time to do it.  This means dedication, commitment and perseverance.  So as I journey along this long road, I shall keep you all updated on the progress.

This book and many others has been conceived in me for years.  I delayed  myself in the book writing  but when God said it is time, He connected me with destiny helpers that encouraged, challenged me to publish my first book.  When I saw the timely connections with the rights connectors (people who God connects you to for a purpose and season) then you know it is time to break out.

My first book, You are precious, The experience of my Father’s love is out on Amazon .    Go and get your copy!!!!!

You Are Precious is all about the experience of My Father’s love being initiated from the close relationship I developed with my late earthly father, who passed away more than a decade ago. Never did I know that I could encounter more of God’s precious love, especially when I left my parents’ home to live an independent life as an adult. In a desperate search for love, it details my story of discovering  Father’s love, that surpasses every other, and abides in a place of intimacy with the Lord.

This book  is an inspirational book that would transform you life through dealing with identity crises, fears and other emotional baggages of rejection, abandonment and unworthiness.   It is a journey of discovering my true self in Christ, my love language to Abba Father and soaking in the deep wells of  my Father’s love.  This book would inspire you in a new dimension to understand how precious you are to God, your uniqueness, empower you to walk in the boldness and confidence of who you are in Christ Jesus.  You are uniquely peculiar to God, there is no other you but only one you that has your DNA.

I  would encourage you to comment on your thoughts of your priceless value to God and how reading You are precious book has transformed your life

Everyone on this planet have their individual fears.  It could range from the fear of heights, fear of snakes, fear of crowds and so on.  I must confess that one of my fears is the FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN.  It has been a challenging journey for me as I work with the Holy Spirit, my helper and Counselor who helps me overcome the fear of the unknown.  Today I would like to share with some of the ways I dealt with the giant in my life.

The fear of the unknown is the giant in your life that intimidates, frightens, causes tremendous distress, pains, making your life a miserable living hell to hinder, restrict, keep you in bondage from fulfilling purpose and prospering in all your accomplishments.

I am still on the journey of remaining in His perfect love, for perfect love cast out all fears.  God’s love is perfect and complete in Christ Jesus.  His love is divine and pure, He has no atom of fear in Him.

 There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgement] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. 1 John 4:18 amp

HOW TO OVERCOME  FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN

HAVE A CLEAR SOUND MIND

When you have projects you have never done before or embarking on a new journey, the worries of what ifs, what not, what then keeps ringing in your mind. Your mind gets so clouded by constant analysis that leads to mental paralysis, eventually you get overburdened with the stress of sorting it all out.   Believe in yourself , think positive for God has not given you the spirit of fear but of power, love and sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)  He knows you can do it, He believes in you and that is all that should matter to you even when no one believes in you.  BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.  Find a quiet place to clear your mind, in quietness and trust of who you are in  Christ, invite the Holy Spirit and tune in to receive from Him.  The words you receive in a place of rest and quietness are resurrecting life that stirs your heart to step out and walk by faith not by sight.

DO IT AFRAID

When you have clarity on where you are going, what you want to do, how to do it.  Then what is hindering you, cast out the spirit of fear and release the spirit of God’s love.  Just do it, act fearlessly, stepping out of your comfort zone to accomplish the assignments that needs to be executed.
