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.

Choices…

I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.

– Eleanor Roosevelt

It has been a wonderful month I must say; a month of grace indeed! I mean I have been blessed in ways I cannot fathom. I have also found myself making some choices, both great and small… so I thought I’d write a word or two about the choices we make.

The choices we make are key to the priorities we practice.

From the first day we become born again, we’ve been trying to choose good over evil, better over good, and best over better. The importance of such choices cannot be overestimated or overemphasized. As we’ve all heard, if you want to know what you’ll be like in the future, just look at the choices you are making today. As now, so then! It’s something of a riddle. And so are these two thoughts:

“What you are today (based on the choices you’re making) is what you are becoming” and “You are today what you have been becoming (based on the choices you’ve already made).” Our choices, which reflect our priorities, will help us fulfill God’s design for our lives. Getting everything done-or deciding what doesn’t need to be done-is a matter of choice. Whether you are dealing with the next five minutes, the next hour, tomorrow, or forever, the choices you make all the difference in the world!

Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Remember to always ask God’s opinion first, it will make a huge difference.

James 1:5  says “if any of you lacks wisdom, ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to you.”

Lastly, the C’s of life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

Choose to overcome your limiting beliefs and achieve your goals. The choice is yours, choose life so that you may live.

God bless you,

Love, Dami xo

Keep Calm

1 Peter 5:10 The Voice

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of grace who has called you [to His everlasting presence] through Jesus the Anointed will restore you, support you, strengthen you, and ground you.

Revelation 21:4 The Voice

 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
    Death will be no more;
    Mourning no more, crying no more, pain no more,
    For the first things have gone away.

 I don’t know if you’ve lost someone or something dear to your life, or maybe you are going through things you cannot talk about. I’m glad you are here reading this, this is your set time, a time to be encouraged.

So, why don’t you scroll up again, read the bible texts you scrolled by unread, slowly read it aloud, personalise it (put I). Sit quietly, think of what you’ve just read, read it the final time.

See, God will never leave or forsake you, the Lord Himself will fight for you, His grace is sufficient for you.  When you pass through the waters, He has promised to always be with you, and  when through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flames shall not consume you.

Remember, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers you out of them all. The Lord shall stand with you and give you strength, the joy of the Lord is your strength. Keep calm, keep on praying because He bends down to listen to them all, you have the Holy Spirit within you as a comforter for times like this. You are not alone.

Believe His promises over your life. I know this sound a bit cliché but rejoice in your sufferings, knowing that your suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put you to shame, because God’s love has poured into your heart through the Holy Spirit who has been given to you.

Are you encouraged now? No, not yet?

OK let me give you some few example of people who God made their tests become their testimony, their suffering become their glory, and healed their diseases.

Read these few of many testimonies in the Bible, click on the Bible verses

Mark 5:24-34 The woman with the issue of blood

John 5:2-9 The man by the pool of Bethesda

1 Kings 17:7-24 The widow of Zarephath

1 Samuel 1: 5-20 Hannah birth one of the greatest prophets – Samuel

And the Ultimate of them all, the story of Jesus’ suffering which became His Glory.

So don’t worry, you’re in good hands, God’s got you! You’re breaking through something that’s really big.

Emmanuel is with you even in your pain, push a bit more, your miracle, healing, and breakthrough is just round the bend.

May the peace of God that pass all understanding be with you.

Peace,

Dami xo

A Time of Reflection…

A Time of Reflection:

Easter Series

Romans 3:20-24 (The Voice)

Therefore, doing what the law prescribes will not make anyone right in the eyes of God—that’s not its purpose—but the law is capable of exposing the true nature of sin. But now for the good news: God’s restorative justice has entered the world, independent of the law. Both the law and the prophets told us this day would come. This redeeming justice comes through the faithfulness of Jesus, the Anointed One, the Liberating King, who makes salvation a reality for all who believe—without the slightest partiality.  You see, all have sinned, and all their futile attempts to reach God in His glory fail. Yet they (you) are now saved and set right by His free gift of grace through the redemption available only in Jesus the Anointed.

In English Standard Version

For by works of the law no human being will be justified in His sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, And are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

Can we take sometime time out today to reflect on Grace

Can we just take a minute to think of  Jesus’ suffering

Can we reflect on His Love for us…?

Sit at Jesus’ feet …

This is a time of reflection

Grace what have you done?
Murdered for me on that cross

Accused in absence of wrong My sin washed away in your blood

Too much to make sense of it all 

I know that Your love breaks my fall 

The scandal of grace, You died in my place so my soul will live

Death, where is your sting? 

Your power is as dead as my sin 

The cross has taught me to live and mercy my heart now to sing

The day and it’s trouble shall come 

I know that Your strength is enough 

The scandal of grace, You died in my place so my soul will live

And it’s all because of You Jesus

It’s all because of You Jesus 

It’s all because of Your love that my soul will live.

These are some of the lyrics from Hillsong United – Scandal Of Grace 

and finally He said to me, “My grace is enough to cover and sustain you. My power is made perfect in your weakness.” 

 2 Corinthians 12:9

Pray

Your Mercy O Lord, Your mercy has brought me to my knees again, Your Grace is all I need Jesus.

Join me again tomorrow! Happy Easter Sunday in advance.

May the grace of the Lord be with you now and forever more, Amen.

Love, Dami E
