Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Six

God is a faithful God. Even when we are not faithful, He is faithful. So can you imagine if you are actually faithful to God and His causes, what He would in turn do for you? The Scriptures tell us that God is not unjust and that He will not forget the love that we show to His people. If we want to God to remember us, then we have to show love to His people. Who are God’s people? Look no farther from yourself. God’s people are all around us – in our homes, at our workplaces, on the street and everywhere. When an opportunity arises to show love to a stranger, we must remember that we are doing it for God and that He will remember that act of love.

Let us show love to all those around us today.


Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Five

Fellowship with God requires us to be living in the light. We cannot say that we have fellowship with God when we are still living in spiritual darkness. Spiritual darkness includes living a life which is contrary to the word of God or living a sinful life in secret whilst telling everyone that you are a child of God. If we live in the light then we will have fellowship with God because God is light, and we will be cleansed by the blood of Jesus to ensure that we continue to have fellowship with God.

May you be emboldened to step into the light and have fellowship with God.


Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Four

This verse is a reality check and at the same time gives us assurance of the Lord’s victory over the world. Many are the struggles that we go through in this world on a daily basis. Some of the troubles that come our way are self inflicted. Others, we have no idea where they came from. In this verse, Jesus is telling His disciples that trouble will come their way because they are living in this world. But then He does not leave it there; He tells them to take heart. In other words, they should be encouraged, be confident, be courageous – why? Because He has overcome the world. If Jesus has overcome the world, then why should the troubles in the world overcome you?

I pray that you will take heart when trouble comes your way.


Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Three

It is such a good thing to know that the Lord hears your voice. In fact, it is one of the reasons why the Psalmist loves the Lord. We are talking about the creator of heaven and earth, and everything in it. The all powerful God that we read about in the Bible. For me, the Lord hearing my voice is a big deal and it is nothing compared to the President hearing my voice. And in this country, when the President hears your voice, it means you are a “big man”. Not only does the Lord hear our voices, he also hears our prayer for mercy. We need mercy from God because of all the things we do everyday. Without God’s mercy, we will be finished because we are not always faithful to God and we give the devil room to plan against us. However, when God is merciful to us, we must also show mercy to others.


Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Two

Who do you call on when you are in trouble? This is full of troubles and it is guaranteed that everyone who passes through this world will encounter some form of trouble. The question is: who do you rely on when you go through those times of trouble? The Psalmist says that his refuge in times of trouble is the Lord. A fortress is a stronghold,(usually used by the military) that cannot be penetrated. You are safe when you are within your stronghold. Times of trouble are opportunities for the devil to attack our faith. It is therefore important for us to seek refuge in the Lord because the devil cannot go where the Lord is, and he certainly cannot destroy your faith when we are in the Lord.
