Effort is useless when Help is not available

Help is a vital part in God’s creation and as humans we need help along the way as we journey here on earth in order for us to have a fulfilled life. Genesis 2:18

J.A.T

God can use what destroyed or killed other people in your family, group, place of work to lift and establish you.

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about:

There’s this story of a widow with two sons in 2kings 4:1-7 whom her husband died leaving her with debts that he borrowed and the creditors were about to take her two sons as slaves for the money her husband was owing them.

The bible went on to say that this widow ran to Elijah for help but all Elijah could do was to tell her to go borrow as many empty jars as she could and go into her house with her sons, shut the door and pour her little oil into the jars one after the other until all were completely filled and none left.

When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.
2 Kings 4:7 NLT

Her husband died borrowing but the widow paid off her husband debts also through borrowing and had enough left to take care of herself and her children.

It is the borrowing that her husband died in that also brought her out of indebtedness.

You also remember how Obed-edom was blessed because the Ark of God was in his house? The same Ark that kill the men who tried to prevent it from falling. 1Chronicles 13:12‭-‬14 NLT

May what killed others be a blessing unto you. May you rise where others fall, when others say there’s a casting down may you say there’s a lifting up in Jesus name.


Many thanks for stopping by, until next time..

Delightful Tuesday

Come, everyone!

Clap your hands!

Shout to God

With joyful praise!

Psalms 47:1 NLT


Wishing you a delightful tuesday ahead, just like every other day.

Do not be afraid

When the women arrived at the tomb on the dawn of the Sabbath, they were greeted not by a cold, sealed tomb but by an angel with a lightning countenance, relaxing in the morning sunshine on the stone that had been rolled away!

And what were the words of this angel?

Do not be afraid!

Let’s travel back in time about 33 years before this Resurrection morning when an angel was sent from heaven to announce the birth of Jesus. What did that angel say?

Do not be afraid!

When God arrives on the scene of our lives, He comes to take away all fear. Jesus lived, died and resurrected to deal with your fear issues! If you are bound by fear, be set free today by the Savior Who could not be held by death!


May all the joys and blessings of this glorious season be yours.
Happy Easter

If God allowed us to win every and any battle that we fight in life we might think that we won those battles by our own strength and doing.

Delightful Tuesday: Just Like Every Other Day

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118:24 NLT

Wishing you a delightful day ahead,

Press On

Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this story: Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You say to him.

A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit, and I have nothing for him to eat

And suppose he calls out from his bedroom, don’t bother me. The door is locked for the night, and my family and I are all in bed. I can’t help you.

But I tell you this, though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence.

And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Luke 11:5‭-‬10 NLT

Here’s Jesus teaching His disciples on how to pray using an illustration of a man who set forth in the night to ask for bread from his friend in order to feed his guest.

But as he got to his friend’s house and made his request known, his friend response was that he can’t be of help to him reason being that it was late and the door is locked.

Though this man wasn’t willing to help his friend but because of his persistent and unwilling attitude to give up easily he will get whatever he needs from his friend.

As God’s children, this is the kind of attitude He wants us to have in our walk with Him be it in prayer, praise, work, family life, business academics and relationships.

The attitude of being persistent in the place of prayer, being persistent in seeking for that job, that relationship, that contract, that admission, being persistent in that business, or project.

The attitude of never giving up.

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.

There was a judge in a certain city, he said, who neither feared God nor cared about people.

A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.

The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, I don’t fear God or care about people,

but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!

Then the Lord said, Learn a lesson from this unjust judge.

Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? Luke 18:1‭-‬7 NLT

Keep on pressing on and the chances are that you will stumble on what you are looking for, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something while sitting down.

Know that there will be times when forces and circumstances will try to shut you down from asking and pressing on, but just like the blind beggar named Bartimaeus (son of Timaeus) in Mark 10:46-52 you need to shout and press the more for your voice to be heard for only in so doing will you get what you yearn for.

Keep praying, keep asking, keep pushing and keep pressing on.

What are some of the things that you crave for? More love? A breakthrough? More pay? More intimacy? Better Job? Press for it by simply asking.

And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Luke 11:9‭-‬10 NLT

Many thanks for coming around, until next time..

Keep pressing on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called you.
