The Perfect Peace.

Have you ever wondered how the perfect peace dawns in your life? Please lets have a chat...

The key element in true lasting peace is the presence of God.In Isaiah 26:3 the Bible says-"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast,because he trust in you".The awesomeness of the whole matter comes when you escalate your faith and learn to trust in His word.
Perfect peace not only dull our pains,it enables us to face an avalanche of hardship and difficulty and still have the inner peace that surpasses all human understanding.
READ Philippians 4:7
In that vein,there are a few walks of faith that solidify the perfect peace:

  • Focus on God- Learn to focus on He that created you.He has a divine purpose for your existence.When you concentrate on that problem,you see it being bigger and difficult to handle.Train your self to always mediate the will of God in every situation.
  • Trust Him- Keep your hope and trust upon Christ,the Bible says in Psalm 127:1 -"Unless the Lord builds the house,the builders labor in vain.Unless the Lord watches over the city,the guards stand watch in vain." .You ought to trust unto the Lord.Sometimes,He uses His tribulations to reveal more of Him unto you.His word is a solid -rock,giving hope to the world,with promises which He ever Honors.
  • Meditate on His Word -Learn His word daily.Make it a daily feast.In Psalm 119:165-"Great peace have those who love your law,and nothing can make them stumble."
Follow the statutes of God,let them be the anchor of your life as a youth.By so doing you will realize the PERFECT PEACE in Christ.

Let His will be done :)

As men, we tend to resist or even avoid what God plans and desires us to do.We try and focus on increasing our plans,we forget our obligation as men.We ought to turn back to our first calling...serving God.
We all end up in misery and disappointment. After grouses and pains, thus when we remember our first calling.
Why wait till then?
Our God is loving,compassionate,abounding in perfect love and mercy (Psalm 86:16).His arms are ever  open wide asking for a chance to take control in your life.Give God the chance to drive you.You will avoid heart breaks...only if you let Christ drive you to the right person.You will have peace in that job...only if you let God provide in His abundance,avoid the back door!
Jonah hid from God, little did he know...God is omnipresent.You too, you will not walk your way for long,He is not yet done with you.Only his will shall prevail in your life.
READ (Jonah 1).
Lord,i inoculate my life from unplanned misery.Let your will take preeminence in my life.For i have only one life,one life to honour you.Lead me be according to your plans and purpose, for i give myself away to you.

Chasing after Vanity

“Meaningless! Meaningless!   says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
    Everything is meaningless.”
 What do people gain from all their laborsEcclesiastes 1:2-3

I have gone through a lot on the recent past.I have searched for a place here on earth to haven my issues in life all being in vain.As i felt  that this would be the snapping point,a felt encouraged by the verse above,that everything here on earth is vanity.
This sounded very true to me,for i lack not,but am not settled.Have you ever wondered why people lack contentment in what they have.They will never rest in search for greatness,wealth,fame.etc.My faith directs me to seeking Christ the more,for everything shall be added unto me.(Mathew 6:33).I thus plead thee,seek Christ in the days of your youth.Keep aside the issues that inhibit your presence in Christ face here on earth.

I know am poor in making decisions,but for this i will.I will seek His face more,for the things in this world are all vanity of vanity...leading to frustrations and confusing.Thus having a litany of complaints every sunset.

Yes.I will seek Christ's face the more.

Unhealthy Vows.

Ezekiel 36:26 as a promise: "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."

What is a vow? What comes to your mind when you hear of it? Is it when a lady commits to stand with her man till death? or a man promises his lady of not walking out ? Vows like these are seen positively, as a God-given privilege, and are something most singles long for. However, not all vows are positive. In fact, some can sabotage romantic love and hinder singles from making it the wedding altar.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines a vow as an "earnest promise that binds one to a specific mode of behavior".

·   Unhealthy vows are rooted in deception
Many of us make vows which are rooted in deception, i will confirm this. If i underwent a break-up, that doesn't guarantee me to vow not to engage again, due to the heartbreak...(I’m just giving  an example).Would my ex-girlfriend then condemn all men and say that all men are liars, will she make a vow not to allow any other man in her life? Many of our vows after a heartbreak are all rooted in deception. If you have made a vow which you feel being unhealthy in your life, more so after a break-up.
The first step to overcome is to ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you reveal each lie that you believed in. Then, pray and confess His truth, because faith comes through hearing God's Word (Romans 10:17).

·     Unhealthy vows are ways we try to protect ourselves and try to make up on what we think God can't do for us
Many of us have been brought up in various lugubrious environs i.e. broken marriages. I am a victim of the same. I could have vowed never to get to marriage because i have lived to see marriages as disappointing. The same concept applies to the singles who pray and wait earnestly to get the"one".And when it doesn't happen, we can feel ignored, abandoned or orphaned by God. And, if He doesn't care about our personal lives, then we'll just have to take care of ourselves by making a vow, right?
To overcome this we need to shoot up our trust in Christ, as He promised (Hebrews 13:5). Acknowledge His love and ask Him if you have believed any lies about His presence in your life. Again, confess the truth and accept it.

·   Vows can hinder our Emotional Healing
Making unhealthy vows is like refusing to take prescribed medication while ailing. The only victim who ends up in pain is you. As a result, The Great Physician is not allowed in to take healing to that which is ailing. Some people have a difficult time getting real with God. If you struggle with sharing your true emotions with Him, remember that He knows how you feel anyway, so you might as well tell Him everything. This is the third step in overcoming vows. 
Take your emotional pain to God and invite Him into it. You can trust Him and He wants you to cast your cares on Him (1 Peter 5:7).
·     Remember that Christ wants to set you free.
Are you still entangled in these unhealthy vows? Jesus is ready to set you free. These happen as a gradual process, just like peeling an onion, it happened in layers rather than in an instant. The key thing is to keep Praying and holding your faith unto Christ.

He said in Ezekiel 36:26 as a promise: "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. “He is so true to His promises.
After tasting His doings, i know He can do it to anyone for He has done it for me.Will you try Him?

No! - My Vitamin :)

Isaiah 22:22 I will place on his Shoulder the Key to the house of David;what he opens no-one can shut,and what he shuts no-one can open.

I just found the above verse as i was reading my Bible.It's revelation comes in my ways.I wish to share what i have for you single men and women of God.Lets get rolling.
I know you are looking for a WOG (Woman Of God)-if you are a man,likewise a MOG (Man Of God) if you are a lady.
I have come to witness various struggles that one goes through in the 'search',you sleep late smsing,you sacrifice you resources (time and money) in the search.etc.
My word to the MOG's in the house,it will cost you nothing to treat that young faithful as you establish an overture.
This is how chivalrous men do;They pray for commitment and God's direction.They are always ready for any response.They take Yes and thank God.Then they ask God for directions.They take a NO and thank God.They take it as a vitamin.That not withstanding,they break the bridges behind them now that things can't work out.They pray for serenity,and never change in how they are.They have no avenge.May be they were late for the overture.They avoid stalking.That's a MOG.

To the WOG in the house,i salute you all in the name of our Lord,i wish to be very soft-minded in your case.I understand you have your own lives too,but we (MOG) are looking for partners.When approached,don't change the MOG to a resource site...then give him a NO at the end.It really hurts.If you are in a relationship,be honest with yourself,you can never lie to yourself.You cannot love two MOGs at the same time,maybe if confused...You need to focus!Avoid wasting each other's time.As a MOG,i would be glad to take a NO-without wasting much time with you.
If Yes,mean it.Well,hope am not much unto that because you Know!

I have learnt that He who created the Lock has the Key,and only Him can open to a life partner,for the bible says:" Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it. -Isaiah 30:21"

Kenya #Weareone

Psalm 18:47 "He is the God who pays back those who harm me; he subdues the nations under me".

Hold your faith,stand firm have a little patience and assurance knowing  your creator,the most High God.He alone avenges for His people.The bible says in Psalm 18:47 "He is the God who pays back those who harm me; he subdues the nations under me".

Fellow Kenyans,God has the ability to subdue the enemy for us.For we are more than conquerors in Christ.We need to pray more for peace and tranquil in our land.The enemy is defeated and is feeble ,he is a liar who comes only to steal,kill and destroy.Let us not give him a portion in your hearts and mind.
The enemy is cunning-Keep watch.He is here to bring confusion and division in our land,but KENYANS ARE ONE.We stand for the words of our National anthem.,"May we dwell in unity"

Thus I am grateful to all those who have supported affected in the #Westgate tragedy.Your cash,your material contribution towards the same has shown the strong love abiding  KENYA.
Remember,our God is rich,all silver and gold belong unto Him (Haggai 2:8).He will repay you back in many folds.To those who have donated blood-God richly bless you for your kind-heart spirit eminent on the same.
Lets keep the spirit a blazing-The Kenyan Spirit of Love.

That not withstanding,I send  sincere condolences to all those affected on the same.May Christ's peace which surpasses all human understanding grace you in these trying period.Be calm and know that He alone is God,who has brought Kenya at 50.I say this with confidence,that you have a purpose for Christ in Kenya and in the whole world at large ,you shall not die a pre-mature death.If you still don't believe it,believe in my God until your confidence in Him kicks in.

He who lives in us is greater than the one in the world.-1 John 4:4

Your position of Royalty in His Kingdom.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me and I will show you great and mighty things which you know not.

I am always encouraged by the above words, when I remember the promise that our Lord gave us as Christians. Have you ever wondered your position in Christ as a believer? Have you ever thought of these? I’ve got a few lessons to share with you.Join me in a this published teet-a-tete.

  •   In Romans 8:14-15 ‘because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the Spirit that makes you slave again to fear, but you received the spirit of Sonship, and by Him we cry Abba Father.’

The above verse speaks it all. Imagine being called the Son of the Most High God. It is from  Him that  all the other kings reign, think of these, being associated with the state’s royal family. A son to the President…ok or maybe a daughter in law or a son in law to the president. That raises you status quo. Here Jesus Christ gives you a chance to be a co-heir with Him in heaven, imagine! If you realize that, you will take yourself in a noble way as the son of God.
  •    In 2 Timothy 2:20-21 ‘In a large house there are many vessels not only made of gold and silver but also made of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the master’.

Not to add much the verse is self-explicit, you get to see where the Lord will places you once you cleanse yourself and  accept to be used of Him. Let’s identify ourselves and the roles we can play for the Master. Thus we will realize the position of royalty given to us by Him.

Peter had realized his position of royalty in Jesus Christ, thus he was the first and the last disciple to walk on water like Christ (Mathew 14:22-33). If you get to know how big you are in Christ, you won’t relent when someone asks you to stop while pursing your dreams.
I once heard;
If you become casual in your dreams, you will end being a casualty’-Les Brown.
Then with the confidence derived from the scriptures, I believe you are capable of doing great things, soaring great heights and even dreaming big.
The only secret in identifying your position of Royalty in Christ Kingdom is to put your faith on board, then be prayerful  as well as you’ve got  inoculate yourself against the pessimism in life.
We serve a great King.
