THE POWER OF PERSEVERANCE OPENS THE DOOR TO SUCCESS: Many people, who fail in life were those who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. The quieter never wins. In confrontation between the stream of water and the rock, the stream always wins not through strength but through sheer dint of striking constantly. Success is largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go. Great works are performed not by strength alone but through perseverance. The person who gets ahead is the one who keeps on going. Perseverance is often the last key on the ring that opens the door to success. When one door closes, another door opens... Just keep pushing. The greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time one falls. Whatever the struggle, continue the journey, it may be just one more step to that desired destination.... I pray with you beloved, your end shall be greater in Jesus name.Amen.

*BLISSFUL HOME TONIC*
As we celebrate our family weekend let take time to look at what it takes to have a wonderful family. Family comprises; father, mother and children. It takes lovely wife and husband to produce good children.
*Secret 1*
Everyone you marry has a weakness. Only God does not have a weakness. So if you focus on your spouse's weakness you can't get the best out of his or her strength.

*Secret 2*
Everyone has a dark history. No one is an angel. When you get married or you want to get married stop digging into someone's past. What matters most is the present life of your partner. Old things have passed away. Forgive and forget. Focus on the present and the future.

*Secret 3*
Every marriage has its own challenges. Marriage is not a bed of roses. Every good marriage has gone through its own test of blazing fire. True love proves in times of challenges. Fight for your marriage. Make up your mind to stay with your spouse in times of need. Remember the vow *For better for worse*. In sickness and in health be there.

*Secret 4*
Every marriage has different levels of success. Don't compare your marriage with any one else. We can never be equal. Some will be far, some behind. To avoid marriage stresses, be patient, work hard and with time your marriage dreams shall come true.

*Secret 5*
To get married is declaring war. When you get married you must declare war against enemies of marriage. Some enemies of marriage are:
Ignorance
Prayerlessness
Unforgiveness
Third party influence
Stinginess
Stubbornness
Lack of love
Rudeness
Laziness
Disrespect
Cheating
_Be ready to fight to maintain your marriage zone._

*Secret 6*
There is no perfect marriage. There is no ready made marriage. Marriage is hard work. Volunteer yourself to work daily on it. Marriage is like a car that needs proper maintenance and proper service. If this is not done it will break down somewhere exposing the owner to danger or some unhealthy circumstances. Let us not be careless about our marriages.

*Secret 7*
God cannot give you a complete person you desire. He gives you the person in the form of raw materials in order for you to mould the person that you desire. This can only be achieved through prayer, love and Patience

*Secret 8*
Getting married is taking a huge risk. You can not predict what will happen in the future. Situations may change so leave room for adjustments. Husband can lose his good job or you may fail to have babies. All these require you to be prayerful otherwise you might divorce.

*Secret 9*
Marriage is not a contract. It is permanent. It needs total commitment. Love is the glue that sticks the couple together. Divorce start in the mind and the devil feeds the mind. Never ever entertain thoughts of getting a divorce. Never threaten your spouse with divorce. Choose to remain married. God hates divorce.

*Secret 10*
Every marriage has a price to pay. Marriage is like a bank account. It is the money that you deposit that you withdraw. If you don't deposit love, peace and care into your marriage, you are not a candidate for a blissful home.

*So today let us pray for our marriages and ask God to help us where we are lacking in the marriage. Send to those you care about because you never know who you may be helping. May God bless you all Amen.

But the end of all things is at hand; Therefore be serious and watchful in your PRAYERS. And above all things have fervent LOVE for one another, for " LOVE will cover a multitude of SINS" Be HOSPITABLE to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a GIFT, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of GOD. 1 Peter 4:7-10.
# PRAY without ceasing.
# LOVE one another
# Be HOSPITABLE to one another.
# Use your GIFTS to bless one another.

You are your own most important resource for making your life work.
Until your knowledge, awareness, insights and understanding are translated into action, they are of no value. Because A goal without action is a wish. Take action towards your goal!

Every disappointment is not meant to decrease you, but to increase you.
Just as every Joseph needs a Pharaoh, so every David needs a Goliath. God brings good and bad people in your life for a purpose. Because without the people in your life, God can do nothing for you. Some people will encourage, advice, help, bless and support you whilst others will discourage, betray, disappoint, fight and despise you. But Don't Give Up! Always remember that God is preparing a table b4 you in the presence of your enemies. Because without the Goliath's and Pharoah's you can't take the throne. God will use your enemies to bless you. Just stay calm!
Have A Blessed Day..��

When the sun goes down the stars come out, so you can shine brightest in the closing chapters of your life. When GOD gives you a DREAM as big as a moutain, it will keep you going while others around you are giving up. So dont let the critics discourage you by saying, You're too old. The bible says like a palm tree, you can produce your greatest harvest of fruit in your final years. PS. 92:14.
Don't answer your critics. Because they will not believe you.

Forgiveness isn't always easy, but we must develop & maintain the capacity to forgive. One of the keys to longevity and good health is to
develop the spirit of forgiveness & let go of past hurts. Remember that there's no peace without forgiveness. Forgiveness isn't always for the person who hurt you, but rather for your own good. "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you... Matt 6:14-15.
Don't allow past grudges stop short the joy in your heart.

You have to get your passion back. You may not see a way, but God has a way. He’s not limited by what you don’t have, by how you were raised, by your education. His favor on your life will open doors you couldn’t open. His anointing will cause you to accomplish more with less talent. His blessing will bring divine connections: people that will use their influence to push you forward. You won’t have to find them; they’ll find you.

Give, and it shall be given back unto you: good measure, pressed down, running over shall men pour unto thy bosom that you cannot contain them.. Luke 6:38.
So think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege, b'cuz no one has become poor by giving.

Experience God’s Mercy
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 136:1)

How amazing is the mercy of God! If not for His mercy, we’d have no hope of redemption. If not for His mercy, we’d all be resigned to a life of hardship, curses, and eternal damnation.

Let’s be clear, God does not owe us anything. He didn’t have to send His Son to die for us. But if God only gave us what we deserved, we’d all be condemned for eternity.

Yet, that’s not what God wants for us.

He wants to show us mercy. He wants to redeem us. He wants to hold us close in His embrace.

It’s because of His mercy that we are now free from all Judgement. It’s because of His grace that we’re now deserving of all His blessings.

So give thanks to the Lord today! Appreciate His mercy, live in His grace, and receive His blessings!

Be Greatly Blessed!

Your True Worth
‘And he said to them, “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.”‘ (Luke 12:15)

Dearly beloved, how are you measuring your worth today? Is it based on your earthly possessions? Perhaps it depends on what position you hold in your office? Or are you taking into account how other people esteem you?

Well, God’s Word says that none of those really matters.

So what then does the value of our lives depend on? If Jesus said that who we are is not determined by what we have, where then should our identity lie?

The rich, young man who settled into self-satisfaction and contentment because his barns were full to the brim with crops was severely rebuked by Jesus. He had foolishly stored up treasures for himself on earth, but had not been rich towards God.

He was wealthy in possessions, but poor in spirit.

If he truly believed in God, if he truly knew how good our heavenly Father really is and how eager He is to bless us, why would he be dismayed when Jesus asked him to give away his possessions to the poor?

Shouldn’t he be rejoicing that he’s been given such a great opportunity to be a blessing to others through Christ?

In fact, Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.”

So why was he dismayed then? I submit to you that although he was rich in earthly possessions, he was, in fact, operating out of a spirit of poverty. He was trusting more in his material riches, than in the everpresent blessings and favour of God.

Could it be then that our identity and value is found in our relationship with God?



What makes our lives valuable is not how much we own, not what we do, nor even what others say of us. Our value, our worth and our identity is found in our relationship with God through His son, Jesus Christ.

We are the adopted sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father; His precious children. His beloved. The blessed ones.

In Him we find our true worth.

Have we been rich in our relationship with God?

How do we feel when we estimate our worth and value in the expectations of this culture – when we strive to find identity in what we own, what we do or what others say of us?

Is there an inner pressure to perform, to keep it all together, to match up to the world’s demanding standards?



Notice the spirit of desolation that draws us further away from both God’s presence and our true selves when we strive to live by other people’s standards, when we try to live up to societal expectations.

That isn’t who we were created to be.

Notice the difference when you rest deeply in the truth that you are chosen by God.

Discover your true identity and worth in Him alone. Let this reality sink deep into our hearts.

For when we choose to live in the reality that we are worthy because we are His children, we find a consoling place of peace, freedom and deep connection with our Heavenly Father.



We then discover who we really are – loved, favoured, the treasure of our Father’s heart.

Be Greatly Blessed!

You’re The Pearl Of Great Price!
Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it. (Matthew 13:44-46)

The treasure hidden in the field and the pearl of great price are parables in the Bible that many people are familiar with.

But due to our familiarity with the verses, we often overlook the deeper meanings buried within.

Firstly, many people believe that the two parables are essentially referring to the same thing – since we’ve found Jesus (the Kingdom of Heaven), we should give up everything else and follow Him.

But let’s read the two parables again in more detail…

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. (Matthew 13:44)

Now this falls in line with the interpretation we mentioned above. We (the man) found the Kingdom of Heaven hidden in the field, sold everything we had and bought the field.

Once we’ve discovered God’s goodness, all the other temptations of the world pale in comparison. We’re now trading curses for blessings, sickness for health, sins for righteousness. We give up all our previous misconceptions about the world and about God in exchange for the true knowledge of God’s love. Makes perfect sense.

But now let’s take a look at the other parable…

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it. (Matthew 13:45-46)

Did you notice the difference? In the previous parable, the Kingdom of Heaven is likened to the treasure in the field and we are represented by the man who eventually bought the field.



However, in the second parable, the Kingdom of Heaven is likened to the merchant, not the pearl!

What does the pearl represent then? I submit to you that you are the pearl of great price!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

God loves you so much, and you’re so precious in His eyes, that He gave up everything, split the heavens apart, came down to earth, was stripped of all riches, endured humiliation, suffered unimaginable torture, and died on the Cross, just so that He can redeem you.

Do you see how valuable you are to God?

So whenever you feel defeated. Whenever you feel insignificant. Whenever you feel that no one cares about you.

Remember, you are the pearl of great price! You are the one whom the Lord of the universe gave up everything to redeem.

Be Greatly Blessed!

‘Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.’ (2 Corinthians 5:20)

Seek The Lord
‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.’ John 1:16 (AMP)

Beloved, seek the Lord today and keep Him in the forefront of your heart and mind.

He longs to bless you and reward you. If you’d only let him.

You believe that He exists, that is good and well. But your heavenly Father wants to be more than just an idea, or a figurehead.

He wishes to be an intimate part of your life.

So by grace, through faith, let Jesus be your saviour today.

Let Him save you from your sins.

Let Him save you from your troubles.

Let Him save you from strife.

Guard your heart. Fill it with the Peace of Jesus.

Whatever troubles you, whatever worries you, place them in God’s hands.

He’ll take care of it.

Your job is to seek Him.

When your heart’s full of joy and your spirit’s overflowing with peace, you’ll know that you’ve found Him.

You’ll know that all is well.

And you’ll know that He has bountiful rewards waiting for you.

For He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Be Greatly Blessed!


Prayer:

Father, thank you for your peace, your Word, and your love.

Help me to keep you in the forefront of my heart and mind.

The Power Of Grace
‘where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ (Romans 5:20-21)

Beloved, may the superabounding grace of our Lord be with you today.

Where there is sin, let there be righteousness.

Where there is lack, let there be abundance.

Where there is weakness, let there be strength.

Where there is strife, let there be peace.

Where there is confusion, let there be clarity.

Where there is sickness, let there be health.

Where there is death, let there be life.

Where there is darkness, let there be light.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, my gracious God, thank you for drawing me to you by your grace when I was lost in my sin.

Help me to show kindness and grace to those who’re still hurting.

Let your superabounding grace flow through me to touch and bless those around me.

Let it be so.

God Is Your Hope
When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been sick for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to be made well?” (John 5:6)

How good is the God you believe in? As the day draws to a close, meditate again on His goodness and grace.

Were there things that troubled you today? Were there situations that seemed hopeless?

It’s time to let them go, into the hands of God.

In John 5, we read that a man who laid by the pool of Bethesda was sick for thrity-eight years. He laid there hoping that he could get into the pool when the angels stirred the water, so that he may get well. But there was no one to carry him into the pool. So he could only watch as others got healed. While he lay there powerless.

Can you imagine how hopeless he must have felt?

That is, until he met Jesus!

Jesus simply asked the man, “Do you want to be made well?”

With one, command, Jesus said, “Arise, take up your mat, and walk.”

And “Immediately, the man was made well, and took up his mat and walked.” (John 5:9)

After years of hopelessness, yearning, pining, desperate for a healing, all he could do was lie and see others get healed.

Yet, the moment he met Jesus, he was instantly healed!

What have you been pining for? Does it seem like the blessings you want always end up in someone else’s house? Maybe some of them don’t even seem godly at all, yet they seem to be blessed?

Well, God is asking you not to lose hope today.

With one Word from Jesus, everything can turn around in an instant.

Whether you need healing in your body, your finances or your relationships, one Word from Jesus is all you need.

Remember, victory is already yours through the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hold fast to the hope and see the promises of God come to pass in your life.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Cling To Jesus
My soul stays close to you. Your right hand holds me up. (Psalm 63:cool

Hold fast to God’s promises today.

It’s easy to lose sight of what’s truly important when you’re busy or facing difficult circumstances.

We can sometimes be so occupied putting out fires in various areas of our lives that we completely forget about Jesus.

But amazingly, when we look to Jesus and meditate on the goodness of God, our problems seem to melt away.

You can toil all night like Simon Peter and catch nothing. But once you have Jesus on board, you’ll have so much blessings coming in that your nets and boat wouldn’t be able to contain them. (Luke 5:1-10)

So cling to Jesus today, like a branch connects to a vine. For it’s only when you’re connected to the true Vine that His life can flow through you.

Precious child of God. Know that Your dreams and destiny have been laid out before you. Just follow His lead and you’ll be safe.

Rejoice and take refuge under the shelter of His wings. Think of His loving kindness and bless His name with your lips.

Stay close to Jesus, and He’ll stay close to you.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Heaven Celebrates
‘Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.’ (Luke 15:10)

Beloved, remember today that all of heaven rejoiced when you accepted Jesus. The angels celebrated when you had a transformation of your heart and mind. When you were made alive in Christ. When you reclaimed your rightful place as God’s royal child.

You had a change of mind.

No longer are you a slave; you’re now family.

No longer are you mired in sin; you’re now filled with Jesus’ righteousness.

No longer are you cursed; you’re now showered with God’s abundant blessings.

No longer are you dead, you’re now flowing with the resurrection life of Christ.

And now that you’ve been made alive, no longer turn back to the ways of death.

Remember today, once again, who you are in Christ. Celebrate with heaven. Rejoice. Receive the blessings and favor of our heavenly Father through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heaven is celebrating. Are you?

Be Greatly Blessed!


Prayer:

Father, what honour it is, to know that all of heaven celebrated for me.

You found me when I was lost and you rejoiced.

Who am I? That you’re so mindful of me.

Yet, now that I know who I am in Christ, I too will rejoice and celebrate.

For I’m no longer dead, but alive with the life of Christ. I’m a new creation through the finished work of Jesus.

The Beauty Of Creation
‘But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you.’ (Job 12:7-cool

Beloved, do you see the stars declaring the majesty of God? Do you hear the birds singing praises? Do you understand the wonders of God shared by the lilies in the field?

Favoured child of God, our Father speaks to us through many ways. Through His word, through our circumstances, and sometimes through others. These are the mediums by which we hear the voice of His spirit deep in our hearts directing the course of our lives.

Yet this declaration by Job sheds light upon another way that God speaks: through His natural world. The beauty of creation declares the majesty and power of God and informs us of His ways.

Jesus confirmed this fact by using examples from the created order to teach kingdom principles.

God’s care and provision was seen through the flowers of the fields and the birds of the air; God’s love for us was shared in the parable of the lost sheep; God’s values were understood in the unproductive fig tree and the pearl of great worth; the state of our heart was explained in the parable of the soils and the powerful growth of God’s kingdom was told by Jesus in the parable of the wheat and the mustard seed.

How often do we stop our activity and step outside to ponder the gifts of creation that have so much to teach us?

Job said there are lessons to be learnt right before us in the animals, birds, fish and in fact all the earth. All nature unites in declaring the wisdom of God and we can gain His understanding by observing it.

Consider what truth we might be missing out on by neglecting His handiwork. What mysteries are we yet to know?

From the tiny crawling ants to the great lumbering mammoths of the sea, we can uncover truths that will direct and shape our lives, and deepen our wonder of God.



Let’s take time to cease our labours, rest and reflect upon the world right in front of our eyes and listen to what God might whisper into our hearts.

Keep still, and know God.

Be Greatly Blessed!

God’s Love Endures Forever
‘The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever…’ (Isaiah 40:cool

Beloved, know today that the promises of God are eternal.

The grass may wither, the flowers may fade, but the Word of God will always be effectual.

Open your heart to His promptings. Listen. For your Heavenly Father is blessing you and declaring His favor upon you.

Look not to temporal things for assurance. Instead, lean onto the everlasting Word of God.

His Word will lift you up. His Word will strengthen you. His Word will see you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

So keep His promises in your thoughts. Meditate on His Word and let His love renew your spirit.

Be Greatly Blessed!


Prayer:

Father, thank you for your eternal Word.

The Word that continually blesses us and delcares a future full of hope and glory.

Thank you for your patience, your guidance, and especially your unconditional love for us.

Help me to keep your Word in my mind, my heart, and my spirit.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

“O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.” (Psalms 62:cool

Isn’t it great to know that there’s someone you can always turn to? To talk about your hopes and troubles, victories and failures.

Someone whom you can vent to when you’re frustrated, and celebrate with when you’re joyous.

Isn’t it even greater to know that this someone loves you deeply? He cares for you more than anyone else.

And not only does He listen to you, He’s also able to help you. To be your refuge.

He shields you from your troubles, defeats your enemies, and blesses all that you put your hands to.

He always listens intently, never missing a word that you say.

In fact, He’s even more eager to bless you than you’re to receive.

What’s more, He’s also the King of kings and the lord of Lords.

He holds the entire universe in His hands.

The stars shine because of Him. The wind and the waves obey His every command.

Truly, what a privilege it is to have the Lord of hosts as our confidant.

So pour your heart out to Him today. Tell Him your hopes and your dreams.

He longs to commune with you and turn your dreams into realities.

Be Greatly Blessed!
