IT CAN BE FIXED; YOUR BROKENNESS 


In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old – Amos 9:11 
God is the greatest innovator in history. He’s the master builder of all time. He’s not only capable of releasing his imagination into reality. Without a doubt he’s the only God who has the power to fix back our brokenness to its primal beauty, as if life was never tampered by chaos. Almost all humans look up to Him for the grace to build our lives to the highest peak of purpose. Are you yearning for the wisdom to start or the grace to rebuild your life after a hiccup? Whatever your position is today, there’s hope for you in Christ to walk into victory. 

A SHAKEN — Moreover, there are countless number of humans under God’s heaven who are also going through a shaken, a breaking, a destruction, a collapse of sort in their lives. Sometimes the degree of the collapse maybe deemed impossible for restoration, when they measure the depths of your fall. It could be a business venture, a relationship, the seat of your emotions, ministry, or your spiritual commitments; terribly declining.

REJOICE NOT OVER ME — The greater the fall or the breaches within our lives, chills of fear seizes its opportunity to creep into our souls, giving us a million reason live will never taste glorious again. I’ve been there before in ministry, and so many aspects of life — when everything you’ve labored for collapses in front of you, scattered in all the places, and nothing seems to work, no matter how hard you try. Colleagues will start making fun of you, gossiping about you. Some will even go to the extent of convincing their own soul, that you’ve sinned against God, instead of them to stand with you, encouraging your soul. Good friends may abandon you, even your own shadow may follow the crowd, leaving you to rot in shame. 

EXPECT A MIRACLE — But, here is the good news — God is able to close all breaches of life; healing the old wounds and memories of the past. He’s capable of raising up the ruins of our lives. Those things in our lives which were steady and strong some weeks back, or many years ago. He promise to build and restore us to days of glory. I dearly believe in a God of restoration. He can create, and he can also restore the years that the caterpillar and the cankerworm has eaten. Expect Him to fix your life again. Yes, the life which is in despair now, because of a divorce, separation, or the lost of a love one. 

JUST BELIEVE — Friend, your God will not leave you in the hands of your enemies, as you sit on top of the rubble heap with your hands over your head, whiles the wicked gloat over you. He will surely restore the fortunes of your business, prosper your wayward children, restore your ministry, your dignity, and build your self esteem back, even to the very core of your spirit. Just look unto him today, faith in your eyes, and rare patience within your heart. 

GREAT LESSONS — Don’t be in haste, running around for solutions from people. God will always use your downfall to teach you great lessons you can pass it on to others. I’m taking about life incredible lessons only pain can teach you. It’s not easy, but he will grant you the grace to endure to the end. God will prove those naysayers wrong. May God receive praise, honor, and power today, for he has remembered the reproached, and the beggarly. Oh, builder and restorer of our lives, we thank you for lifting us from the miry clay, setting us on the rock to stand. Amen!

I DON’T


Photo Credit: Google image

Consider myself as anything worth emulating

Why would you waste your time and resources

Trying to become anything worthless in being

I am worthless

I am hopeless

A destitute, standing under the spotlight

There is nothing good within me, except ego

There is nothing good within me except illusions

They went out there, looking for someone to emulate

They travelled far and near, searching for hope in others

Why would you waste your time searching for dry lands

To  anchor your soul on, when the ocean is beckoning on you?

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I’m wrapped up in sin, Without Christ;

I am a sounding brass,

A trumpet sound, without meaning

Look into the eyes of the ones whose heart has

Been invaded by His (Christ)  very own life

On this dreary side of eternity –

There is a refuge of a savior

For the weary heart and the broken

His worth in them

is worth emulating

CALL OF HOPE


 7 am.

I woke up under the bridge;

Smiled and strolled down,

on grinding lane.

2 am.

I woke up

Sat up, all night long

Wondering why in the abundance

Of life, I can’t steal a smile.

Then I realized that, riches can offer

You the best in life, but can’t guarantee,

A lifetime of true happiness.

5 am.

I knelt down beside my bed and

called on Him (God) who gives life

THE PLEASURE OF BELIEVING


20140606-095014.jpg

We can all live in true joy in a negative world. Jesus has become the complete package, that satisfies every form of hunger and need of the human heart. A heart anchored daily in the completeness of Jesus, experience the Spirit activity of stirring inner peace and joy to affect our external life. Worries and anxiety is a sign that we are not trusting God or we are not persuaded by the truth of His word. I have had my share of worries and uncertainty in my heart, this whole week. Then again, I am truly encouraged by the heart of my Father in heaven, through scripture. His desire is to see you and I, walk in real happiness: Now my heart is full of good expectation joy and peace, which comes from Jesus. I thank Christ Jesus, for lavishing me super-abundantly with the grace to ride through the storms. Friend, I don’t know what ails you today; I just want to assure you that, no matter what your situation is today, the secret to peace is to keep believing that you can make it through the storm. Your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith. Have a graceful weekend!  Amen!!

 

HOPE I HOPE


ruth-gleaning

We sat in the dust

Just wondering how

Surrounded by darkness

A thick wall of resistance

Our persistence fades

Wells so dry;

Our children cry for wellness

We sat in the dark with empty stomach

Tears in our eyes;

Like lonely birds on broken branches,

Drenched in cold; after the hurricane

Just wondering why;

Our wings are so heavy for a routine flight

The candle in our hearts; snuffed out

The wicked gloats over us

Our belly bloat with regret

Blown away into the unknown

Disowned by the reality of our lost

We remembered our Kinsman Redeemer

Our hearts; filled with redemption theme

Our mouths; wet with redemption songs

He is near;

I know my redeemer lives

He is near;

Even now, there is hope

In-spite of hopeless gravity

We looked beyond our depravity,

Into His eyes;

Mercy said; No

Our hearts said; Yes

Prison doors burst open

Light shine in our darkness

Chains fell off from our wounded souls

For the price of my freedom;

You were wounded with my chains

Yes, you took the blame and changed the game

You are the hope I hope;

Jesus

Bread of life

Savior friend

My Redeemer

Lilly of the valley

Rose of Sharon

Lamb of God

My Shepherd

Hope of Israel

    Light of the world

hope

Ezra 10:2 ESV … “We have broken faith with our God and have married foreign women from the peoples of the land, but even now there is hope for Israel in spite of this.

I WANT YOU TO LOOK INTO MY EYES


Photo Credit; Gogle image

I want you to look into my eyes and see shelter

From the chaos storms of a stormy world

I want you to give up your arms and take up mine

There is rest for your smothered soul; in my arms

I want you  to feel my heartbeat of love, when you are near

I want you to stop running and breath the warmth of my love

I saw you among the crowd of faces on Glee Avenue

Smiles

Giggling

Laughter

Moody

Headset on

Fast walking

No one knows your pain

You knows no ones pain

Secret pains being kept in secrecy

Amidst the laughter and the noise; weariness

I saw you awhile at the restroom, wiping your tears

Look into my eyes and see hope to cheer

I saw you at the parking lot of the medical facility

The doctors report in your hands says; its incurable

The written on the walls of your heart says; it’s over

Look into my eyes and swim in the ocean of my grace

Oh, battered and bruised heart;

Why wandered in the dark forest without a candle

Tambourine in thy right hand and shame on thy left hand

Your guilt sounds louder than thy praise, in my sanctuary

 Unfailing brightness peace of mine;You can count on

Lighting thy path to relentless peace and comfort

Look into my eyes

Look  my way

Rest awaits you from thy laborious activity of secret pain

DESPERATE FOR GOD?


“True Christianity is not about feeling a sense of hopelessness-desperation for God’s attention. In Christ Jesus, we have 24/7 relentless love and caring attention of our heavenly Father. Our faith is not a stimuli to evoke a speedy reaction from God, but rather our faith embraces and appropriates whats He has already done through the finish work of Christ Jesus, on Calvary cross”

Psalm 46:4-7  (NIV) 
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
 

 Sharing is Caring!!

NO MORE SHAME BUT HIS GLORY


 Instead of your trouble, God has crowned you with double honor; you have no business with your naysayers to let the sound of their voice stop you on your tracks… It’s not over; get up and run with the winds of His grace on your back” On your mark, set, GO

The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, Turned back in the day of battle… Psalms 78:9 NKJV

As covenant children of the creator of heaven and earth, we have become living icons of a living God on is side of eternity. We have the very DNA of God, to master every form of situation effortlessly. The reason we can confidently look in the face of obstacles stacked up against us and not be paralyzed in fear and discouragement, but rather shout from the roof top to the hearing of Satan and his cohorts; “we will not be ashamed or disgraced”. It is not a matter of what we know or can do better in life through self effort, it’s a matter of complete dependence on a God who is an ever-present help in times of trouble. You cannot be corrupted or put to shame friend; you are crowned in honor! For Yahweh is your help.

For the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed – Isaiah 50:7 NKJV

Do you remember the young David, standing in a very hostile environment against an enemy of God, when the battle lines were drawn between the Philistine champion, I-can-helpGoliath and God’s covenant people, Israel. David was not only fighting against Goliath, he was also fighting against his inner critic and the negative analyses of his own brothers, who were experience military men in the army of Saul. His brothers had the accolade and the ability in tactical warfare to analyze things in the flesh to sow a

seed of fear and doubt into their younger brothers heart. They could even visualize his untimely death and disgrace to the kingdom of Saul and that of their family. They saw shame, but David saw the mercies of God, which is new every morning. Their analysis could not deter him because his conviction and opinion of his God, outweighed every silly voice of doubt in his ears. What do you see and what are you hearing? You can control your emotions or bend to the suggestions of men if you are distracted from who your God is and who you are in Him. God is on your side….you can only press on through the dark valleys of life. You are not far from change!! What are you facing today? Does the negative opinion of your Doctor and the bad report of the media, instill fear into your life, yielding the fruit of hopelessness and despairing of tomorrow? This is your time to believe that God has already crowned you with glory and honor, therefore victory over sickness and lack is imminent. Help is here! Glory to God!! Look beyond your predicament my friend and behold the beauty of Christ as you transform from glory to glory by His Spirit.

  Now Eliab his oldest brother heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.” And David said, “What have I done now? Is there not a cause? ( 1 Samuel 17:28-29 (NKJV)

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE – When you understand your assignment in life, and become passionate and obsess about the God who assigned, you will always rise above the hump. David knew his cause… he had a special knowledge of God and his ability to do the impossible through the ordinary. He plugged himself into God’s activity, imagesCAT9VYIXexpecting a turnaround miracle from Him. He could not be moved by men’s negativity or the sight of the giant, Goliath. He was so full of God; fear was nowhere to be found in his vocabulary. He boldly declared to the Philistine champion; 

“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:45-47 (NKJV)

Embrace, Empowered, EnergizedWhat kind of attitude are you demonstrating in the midst of a very complex situation you dealing with? Do you shudder in fear and disbelief or you’ve learn to hope in God no matter the circumstances? God always honors the trust we place in Him. When the battle is always the Lord’s, He will always place our adversaries underneath our feet, to glorify His name. Instead of shame, you will see the Lords glory in all areas of life. David saw the glory of God revealed through him, when he stood boldly for the God of Israel. God is always looking for a man who will plug into His redemptive plan, to pull down the evil restrictions and limitation which exalt itself against the knowledge of God. You can be that agent of change at your office, school, family or community, where everybody is afraid to stand out for what they believe. Be that voice in your community or local Church, to break the glass ceiling hanging over the heads of people; for the joy that Christ to be experienced abundantly.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT? Who would have thought that Goliath will fall the hands of a young shepherd boy, who was not officially enrolled into the army of King Saul? The stuff in your life which keeps you in a state of anxiety, fear, stress and depression are not from your God; they come your way from Satan, to contain you in a dungeon of shame and disgrace. You are not far from help. Your God has already given the victory through His Son Jesus. Rise and begin to do things you have been made run into his presenceto believe that it is impossible. God does not help the helper, He helps the helpless. Your weakness and doubts are to bring you to a place of dying to self and embrace the fullness of His grace to do the uncommon.

So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.  Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled. -1 Samuel 17:50-51 (NKJV)

My friend whatever is meant to bring you shame and disgrace or to keep you in perpetual agony, is packing its luggage from your tent. The chronic ailments, scarcity, hurt and the bondage of addiction, are not a match to the glorious power of God, which delivered us from every curse of the law into the boundless riches of His inheritance. It’s a new day; a day God crowns your life with restoration of life, favor, total victory, wholeness and salvation, for the total man in Christ Jesus. Amen!!

DEAR READER


Dear reader,
I don’t know what your pain is today
I don’t know how exactly the odds are
I just want you to know that you are in the plans of God
His thoughts towards you today is love,
Crazy love, embedded in eternal purpose
No matter how steep or crooked life road may look like
The valley may seem too dark and obscure, to navigate through
A valley of shadow of death!
A valley filled with ferocious beasts
Beasts that steals courage from your pilgrim soul
Fear no evil, for the Lord is with you

Dear reader,
Are you weary, worn out and burnt out?
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:

Dear reader,
Maybe you are struggling with an incurable disease
Debt, depression, discouragement or some dark secret,
All things shall work together for your good
There is hope, only believe
There is abundance of help for you, stretch and receive it
Don’t throw in the towel, keep on moving forward

Dear reader,
Probably nobody understands you at this moment.
You have been blackmailed, betrayed and  rejected
Rejected for something you didn’t do or did
Your self-worth and integrity has been muddied
Shame is written on the walls of your heart like graffiti on a city street
Receive forgiveness from where you messed up
Stand tall, tuck your feet on the ground, square up your shoulders
Don’t take matters into your own hands, for being treated wrongfully
The battle is the Lords; He will fight for you and restore you

Let the presence of Jesus wash over your soul, as you watch and
listen to this short but inspired music, by Hillsong (Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus)
 

Don’t be afraid. Take courage. I am here!  (Mathew 14:27 NLT)

– Thanks for holding on. Grace and peace to you!! – McDaniels Gyamfi
