You Are Called For A Bigger Purpose

This Bible verse might be very familiar to you. So before reading, pause and ask God to give you fresh eyes and an open heart to absorb it.

Those who are devoted to God will flourish like budding date-palm trees;
    they will grow strong and tall like cedars in Lebanon.
Those planted in the house of the Eternal
    will thrive in the courts of our God.
 They will bear fruit into old age;
    even in winter, they will be green and full of sap

Psalm 92:12-14 The Voice

Pot plant is a plant grown or suitable for growing in a flowerpot, especially indoors (in a protected environment).

Pot plant Christians are those believers who only grows within their comfort zone- within that circumference, they only stay indoors-in any protected environment, even though God didn’t made them a plant that only grows in a pot, they have chosen to be one. They have potentials to become a palm tree just as Psalm 92:12 stated, but because of their laziness, because of their complacency, they choose to stay in that protected environment.

Funny thing about pot plant Christians is they bear no or few fruits, they only produce limited fruits and sometimes if they are not watered often, they die.

So I pose the question, Are you a pot plant Christian? Do have the characteristics of a pot plant?

The honest truth is you have so much more to offer, your purpose,  your fruits are so great but if you don’t grow you will die.

Don’t you want to flourish?

Don’t you want more saved souls in this Heaven race?

Are you not tired of being in the same position you’ve been since you got saved?

Remember, God is not looking at how beautiful your pot is – you don’t need to feel qualified. He is looking at the plant – He is more interested in you, the treasures He had deposited in you.

See, no matter what God gives you, you must always do your best as the Lord’s servant to make it grow, and you can’t afford to be just a pot plant in this mission field.

 Get up, shake off every spirit of laziness, you are not working for man, you are working for your God, your saviour. The One who took the fall so you don’t have to!

ARISE Intercessors, ARISE from your sleep.

The time is now. God wants to use you for a bigger purpose!

You have an assignment.

Your seeds are as great as the sequoia tree (the world’s largest tree- General Sherman) but you’ve got to break out of those pots to be as great as the original tree God designed you for.

You have what it takes because you have Him

A pot plant Christian cannot lead others to Christ. Why? Because they are busy sitting in their comfort zone. 2 Timothy 2:15; do everything you can to present yourself to God as a man who is fully genuine, a worker unashamed of your mission, a guide capable of leading others along the correct path defined by the word of truth. 

You cannot do this if you remain in this pot. You cannot present yourself to God as a fully genuine worker if you decide to stay in your area of comfort. Anyone can do that!

Remember in Revelation 3:16, God says if you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, He will vomit you out of His mouth.

A tree that does not bear good fruits will be cut down.

This message speaks volume to me now like it did in Jesus days to the disciples.

So as for you and me, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Let us encourage and build each other up in love. And the word of God is a two edged sword, this message speakers louder to me the writer.

Love, Dami xo

Desperation Has A Sound

Have you ever been desperate for something in your life before?
Yes?
Then you can imagine what was going on in the head of the blind Bartimaeus… when people tried to drown his voice; scolding him to shut up, to be quiet but instead of giving up as the storm rages, the nearer Jesus got to him, the louder he became.
He shouted even more loudly, “Jesus! Son of David! Have mercy on me!.”
Why?
Because desperate people do desperate things.
Are you desperate too?
Are you desperate for a miracle? for a breakthrough? for a better relationship with God? desperate for a revival? desperate for a new job? for an open door? desperate for healing? Desperate for direction? for a new vision?
 I want you to cry out louder than ever before, louder than this blind man.
Become louder than ever before even as the storm rages, get more louder!
Desperation has a sound!
Be louder in your worship; the power of your worship is a sound to Heaven, a desperation sound.
Be louder in your prayers till He answers you.
If you are like me, if you have a need then cry out today, Declare to Jesus! Son of David Have mercy on me!
And God’s delivery system is called FAITH.
Bartimaeus had a little bit of Faith and the man that was once blind can now see.
Desperation Has A Sound.
Your miracle awaits you.

July: Remain

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

John 15:4 NIV

P.S. I Love You

Hello there, I’m happy you are here today. This is a quick reminder for the new week.

1 Peter 4:8b NLT

…for love covers a multitude of sins

“I just want someone to love me”, our deepest yearnings and longings is to be loved no matter what. Even a bad person wants to be loved. Love is what everyone craves for here on earth and even when we get to heaven, we all want to be accepted and loved in spite of our flaws. I believe you want to be loved despite of your imperfections too. A convicted murderer still wants to be loved by their family regardless of what they’ve done. We all yearn and long for LOVE no matter who we are, good or bad.

Sometimes, in this pursuit of love, we end up in places that will only end up hurting and creating a bigger void in our lives but as humans we don’t give up, we dust ourselves off, pick ourselves up and continue to run in pursuit of true love, searching and hoping someone will truly love us in defiance of all our mess.

We do crazy things to be accepted by others, we so want to be loved at all cost so we don’t mind to get into relationships we know so well won’t work. In the process we damage ourselves. We are now left with different problems such as low-self-esteem and trust issues. We are damaged and battered by the people we crave to love us. But wait God says you can come as you are, yes with all your mess, with all your imperfections, with your damaged self. He is calling you to come; He wants you as you are. Although you see yourself as a damaged goods, with all that you’ve done, Jesus says He loves you. He loves your flaws, He loves your damaged heart, and He loves you as you are. He will take you as His bride, He will wash and cleanse you, dress you in righteousness. He will marry you and you will be one with Him.

He won’t be ashamed of you.

So, start a relationship with Him. Love is in love with you. Know that your deepest yearnings and longings can be met only by a renewed fellowship with the One in whose image you were created, God.

P.S. God loves you.

 That’s Jesus, He’s always doing that to His people. LOL!

But you don’t know what to think or how to act. Nothing like this has never happened to you before?

But at the same time you feel like shouting on the rooftop…telling anyone and everyone about this relentless love you feel.

How crazy the love of God is, You want to share the mystery of what Jesus did. You want to fight for LOVE?

I’m with you on that one!

Don’t fret, you are not alone.

Can you say this prayer with me

Lord, I feel so overwhelmed by Your love, I don’t want it to end here. I want to tell everyone about it. Help me, give me courage and strength. Let me know You are near me, that You are for me and You will personally be with me as I  share Your love with the broken and the lost, Amen.

#OneSoulMovement #TheGreatCommission

You can start in Jerusalem (your city) , yes, right there at your door step.

This is what the Scriptures said: that the promised Anointed One should suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,  that in His name a radical change of thought and life should be preached, and that in His name the forgiveness of sins should be preached, beginning in Jerusalem and extending to all nations. Luke 24:46-47

Your Jerusalem is your city, your street, your workplace etc.

Tell your friends, neighbours about the love, peace and joy you feel.

† = 

Let’s make it home together.

Share the love of God, share His love that’s brighter than the sun

Tell them about the love that fills your heart, the love that’s so Amazing, a love like no other.

Share the Good News, tell them God showed how much He loves us by sending His One and Only Son into the world so that we might have no shame, no guilt BUT instead have eternal life through Him with no shame nor guilt. 1 John 4:9

My brothers, my sisters we have work to do.

Let’s start fishing for a soul.

Let’s go fishing for that #OneSoul #SpreadTheWord
