This is the first month of the new year 2013, the Lord is doing great things in my life and I believe He is in yours too. Personally, Its a new season of new beginnings, moving a few steps forward not going back to the past and stepping up, for He is taking us to a new level.  “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old.  19 Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?  I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV.

As you enter into the new, embrace all that the Lord has in store for you with a heart of gratefulness, faithfulness and peacefulness.  There is so much He wants to do in your life, only if you permit Him by total submission to His ways, will and purpose.  That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared     for those who love him.” 10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets 1 Corinthians 2:9=10 NLT .  Are you ready to walk with Him on the journey ahead?  Will you trust Him when He speaks to you? Is your heart opened to receive all that He has in store for you?

Its a new season, season of revival, rejuvenation, regrowth, blossom, fruitfulness and freshness.  This reminds me of  spring season , which takes place right after winter.  My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.  13 The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away! Song of Solomon 2:10-13 NKJV.

This is a reflection of what I perceive of the new season

Its a new season
Season of joy, Season of peace
Season of increase, Season of abundance
Season of new levels, Season of fresh anointing

The old is gone, the new is here
The past is over, its a new beginning
Time to move forward, keep pressing on
Time to step up, keep standing

Winter has gone, Spring is here
Come out and see the beauty of the day
The green trees and fresh ripe fruits
Reap the harvest of the new season

The time of singing and dancing is here
Sing let your voice be heard
Dance so the whole world would know
Come away with Me My beloved

The time is here, the time is now to do all that the Lord has called us to do, for many are called but few are chosen.  The Lord has given you  the boldness and strength to come out of your shell, come out of your hiding place and embrace the new season.  No more hiding because winter is over and spring is here.  The Lord is willing and ready to show you how and He wants you to come forward, in your vulnerability and stand out in the crowd. Though it might not be easy, let your sole confidence and dependence be in Him.

I pray that you will embrace the new in your life, forget the old and step into this new season of joy, peace and faithfulness in His love for you.  I pray that you will step out of your comfort zone and walk with the Lord on the journey ahead as He works it out.  I pray that He will strengthen you, equip and release you into all that He has called you to do. In Jesus Name amen.

He leads me (2)

By Ngozi Ngadi
After so many months  of training to be a roadworthy driver, I am glad to say that I have passed my practical driving test for the first time ever in my life.   It takes a lot of courage and determination to keep persevering in life to achieve your set goals.   A while ago I wrote a post about how the Lord leads me using the challenges I experienced on my journey to pass my practical driving test and relating it to my relationship with The Lord.  I spoke about the four key mistakes made which were  not listening to instructions, not applying the right instructions, fear of the unknown and scared of large vehicles, And these were applied to my daily walk with the Lord .
Driving is a lifetime skills that requires taking ownership and responsibilities. My focus this time would be on how I passed my driving test successfully and would use my experience in application to my relationship with the Lord.  Here are seven key points that I used to scale through and how He leads me:
  1. Took note of my faults and correct them: When I made silly mistakes my instructor got really disappointed with me occasionally because he knew I could do better than that.  When mistakes have been made or the wrong path taken, I confess my sins and flaws to Him, keeping it real with the willingness to listen and  to obey His instruction and counsel. Proverbs 3:12
  2. Aim for perfection:  There are points for every minor  faults made and a major faults could cause instant failure.  My main objective was to avoid all major faults and reduce all minor faults so I aimed for perfection.  In my walk with the Lord, I know I am not perfect so I cover myself under His grace, the righteousness of Christ.  So in Him I live and move. Romans 3:24, Acts 17:28.
  3. Did not allow my weakness to supersede: Being aware of my weaknesses, ensured that it did not take hold of me. The Lord knows my weaknesses and strengths but in my weaknesses I find strength in Him by His grace.  1 Corinthians 1:3-5, 1 Corinthians 15:10.
  4. Spoke to my heart : During my driving lessons, I  encouraged  myself by speaking to myself that I can drive, speaking positive words into my heart. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, with Him on my side I have got nothing to worry about.  Philippians 4:13.
  5. Determination and perseverance: There were times  when I felt like giving up, every negative thoughts and reasons why I should not continue with the lessons cropped up into my mind.  However my determination and perseverance to achieve my set goal kept me pressing on and hard.  In life challenges I stand firmly in the Lord who sees me through it all. 2 Corinthians 4:8, Philippians 3:12.
  6. Grace: On the day of my test, I had a good examiner who made me feel so comfortable during the test.  Some call it luck but I say its the favour of the Most High God.  His grace covers me like a shield.  Psalms 5:12.
  7. Prayer:  I prayed to God and He heard my cry.  When you seek Him, you will find Him and when you ask you shall receive.  Matthew 7:7

When I was a little child, I looked up to my daddy (earthly father) for everything.  When he spoke I believed every word  he said and took him by his words because I knew he would always fulfil all that he had promised me.  He was there when I needed a shoulder to lean on, in my openness I would run to him and pour out my heart to my daddy.  He would lift me up and carry me on his shoulders.  At that point nothing else mattered to me because I was in my daddy’s arms.  His words meant a lot to me, his encouragements, corrections and guidance.

There were times when my daddy made promises but could not fulfil those promises due to circumstances beyond his means. My focus  was not on the circumstance but the broken promises as a little girl growing up. However my Father in heaven stands by every word that proceeds from Him for His words shall not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11).  He watches over his words until it accomplishes its works just as the rain falls down and waters the earth. He is God, He is my Daddy (Heavenly Father) and when He speaks it will happen in His own way and timing.  He does not lie, He does not cheat for He is a God of justice, righteousness and mercy.  “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do?  Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19 NKJV.  He is the creator of the universe, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.  For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast Psalm 33:9 NKJV.

His words are soothing to heal the broken hearted, encourages you to keep standing in the midst of it all.  His shoulders are there for you to cry on.  Every drop of tears that falls from your beautiful face, He holds in a bottle.   You keep track of all my sorrows.  You have collected all my tears in your bottle.  You have recorded each one in your book Psalm 56:8 NLT.  So trust Him at His words and lean not on your own understanding.  He has spoken, He has commanded, He has promised and it came to pass.  His words are spirit and truth.

We have so much desires, wants and needs that we want from our Lord.  Our daily needs of food, shelter and clothing are necessities that we ask from our Heavenly Father.   Then there are other pressing needs or the secret petitions of our heart that sometimes tries to weigh us down and affect our emotional, physical and mental well being.  Why worry when you have the Lord on your side, to provide for you.

All things are possible through Christ Jesus if you believe without a doubt that He is able to do it all.   Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God” Mark 10:27 NIV.   Everything is possible with God, there is no impossibility with Him because He is God .  Do not limit God and what He can do in your life because He can do exceedingly and abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine of Him.  I call Him my Daddy in Heaven because loves me so much and I am His beloved daughter so I know that whatever I (His beloved daughter) desires or want, I will surely (stamped and sealed with guaranteed confident assurance) get. 

The fact that all things are possible does not mean you should sit down, fold your arms and do nothing.  You have an act to play by faith because faith without works is dead (James 2:17).  By speaking and confessing with your mouth what be not as though they were and acting by faith as if you already have it. If you are loosing faith in any area of your life , spend time in His presence studying the word consistently until it becomes part of you  because faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17). 

With faith all things are possible and His grace is enough to see you through all your challenges.  Nothing, absolutely nothing is too difficult for Him to fulfil all His promises that He has promised you.  He knows your name, He remembers every details of your needs, desires and wants and He will do it in His own time.  You might have been waiting for so long that it seems like His promises and answered prayers are being delayed.  You know what He is always on time.   He turns up at the right time, He is never too late or too early but always on time.



Heavenly Father I pray for those who have given up on You that do not believe You can do it all and have lost trust in You.  Lord God I pray that You will open their eyes to see You for who You really are because You are God.  The God of all possibilities, the God who made a way where there seemed to be no way and the God who is always on time.  I pray that You will bring healing and restoration to their souls and You will stir up their hearts to trust and believe You more than ever.  I stand in faith through Your abundant grace that nothing is too difficult for You.  To God it’s just a simple matter.  In Jesus Name I Pray Amen.

Building trust is essential in every relationship especially marriages.  You might have been hurt in the past and such relationships might have failed you several times that you held back to avoid anymore triggers.  Trust is a key part in every relationship, your employers must trust you to employ you or  your must show some reasonable position of reliability to be employable.  Friendships require trust to build healthy relationships.  Sometimes you trust someone then they stab you in the back consequently  anger,disappointments and so on creeps in gradually.  When this happens run to God and take refuge in Him.  You know what, your sole trust should be in God.  He is perfect and complete, there are no flaws in Him.  On the other side human beings are imperfect with their weaknesses and flaws.  Your refuge or place of safety should be in the Lord.  Trust God more than man and He will never forsake or fail you.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans Psalm 118:8 NIV.  

To trust God means to having complete dependence, reliance and support in Him.  It is your ability to cling to, lean on at all times and have total confidence in Him that He will see you through every problems or challenges you experience.  Trusting God to me means my wholes being (spirit, body and soul) clings to Him, even when I don’t understand what’s going on, I still lean on His own understanding and permit Him to direct my path.

My trust is fastened to God as I lift my life to Him.  And I am certain I will not be put to shame because I trust in You.  O Lord, I give my life to you.      I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced,   or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat Psalm 25:1-2.   As I let go, He takes control.  Though it may seem like I am forgotten, though it may look like I have been left behind in this race, I know certainly that He never forgets those who put their trust in Him and keeps me in perfect peace because my eyes are fixed on Him (Nahum 1:7, Isaiah 26:3-4)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You! 4 Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock Isaiah 26:3-4 NLT.


Father I thank You for today and what You have done in the past.  I pray for those who are loosing faith and trust in God at this hour, time and season that You would strengthen and give them perfect peace that surpasses all understanding.  Their eyes would be fixed on You and You alone, I pray oh Lord that they will shift their focus from the situation and trust You more because with You all things are possible.  I declare that with You all things are possible so Lord have Your way in their lives and take control in Jesus name.  Heal their hearts of every pains, bitterness and unforgiveness that they have experienced as a result of broken relationships.  You heal the broken hearted and set the captives free so where the spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.  I declare liberty in every area of their lives and fulfillment of Your will and purpose that whatever they have asked You in Your name according to Your will they will receive it in JESUS MIGHTY NAME I PRAY and everyone says AMEN.
