- When GOD wanted to create fish , he spoke to the sea .
- When GOD wanted to create trees , he spoke to the earth .
- But when GOD wanted to create man , he turned to HIMSELF .
- So GOD said: ” Let us make man in our image and likeness” .
- If you take a fish out of the water , it will die ; and when you remove a tree from the ground , it also dies .
- Similarly, when man disconnects from GOD , he dies
- GOD is our natural environment . We were created to *live in HIS presence *.* – We have to be connected with Him because only with Him life exists.
- Let’s stay connected with GOD .
- Remember that water without fish is still water, but fish without water is nothing .
- The soil without the tree is still soil , but the tree without soil is nothing …
- God without man He is still God, but man without GOD is nothing
- If this message reaches you and you share it with others, that is called evangelism !
God bless you all.”
“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 6:1 NIV
What is the relevance of your righteousness, Jesus in Matthew 6:1 said that we should not make pleasing men the relevance of our faith , instead we should be concerned about how to make God satisfied in our works.
Also it is clear to see that the one who sees is the one who pays, this doesn’t mean that God doesn’t see the things we do to make others think we are holy, He does but He knows your interest is in pleasing man and not Him. So whoever you please is who will reward you.
Seek to love God with all your heart and with all your might, in that way you will reap the seeds of blessings.
It’s easy to lose focus, but remember to please who gives the reward not the audience 🥲😊
SEE GOD MOVING!
READ: 1 Kings 17:8-24
…this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Many things you have experienced are supernatural. The supernatural is both real and biblical. In the ministry of the prophet Elijah, you see a widow who received a supernatural miracle.
Elijah prophesied that she and her household would lack no food throughout the period of the famine. That prophecy came to pass! However, she secretly did not believe that the supernatural had occurred in her life.
However, when her child died and Elijah brought him back to life, she made a very significant statement.
She said, “Now I know that you are a man of God.” An analysis of her words is very revealing.
This means that all along she didn’t really believe that she was experiencing the supernatural. The miracle of multiplying food did not seem supernatural to this woman.
Many Christians make this mistake. They want the spectacular. They want things to be dramatic; otherwise, they will not believe that God is moving. If you have this attitude, you will miss the supernatural move of God.
I believe I had a supernatural call to serve the Lord, although I did not experience the call of God with thundering and lightning and I have not seen Jesus in person.
The call of God on my life has simply been a conviction, a conviction to serve Him; a conviction to do my best, a conviction to obey the desires that He has placed on my heart.
Apostle Robert Kwesi Aidoo, the overseer for the Central District ‘A’ and the head pastor of Bisease Central assembly of Christian Faith Church International (CFCI) has admonished Christians to be vigilant in this end time. Basing his sermon on biblical scripture from Proverbs 22:3, he described a vigilant person as a wise man who forsee evil and hides himself from it.
Delivering the sermon during the divine service at the Bisease Central assembly of CFCI on Sunday, June 13, he said it is imperative for every Christian to be vigilant because the end time is near and that the rapture can take place at anytime. “Friends, everything going on now is a clear indication that the we are in the end time. We can have rapture today so you have to be watchful”, he said.
He further stated that the world has become inconsistent, and that it takes vigilance to make a meaningful life.
Again, Apostle Aidoo highlighted three critical areas that everybody must be vigilant at. He said there must be vigilance at the body, salvation and life. He said many people today do not have time to take good care of themselves. This situation, according to him, is worse among pastors in Ghana and many other parts of the world. ” Take good care of your body. There have been several reports of death and poor health condition among many men of God all because of stress”, he stated.

EMPTINESS THAT PORTRAY FULFILLED PROMISES (Part 1b)
Monday 12th April, 2021.
SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY:
SCRIPTURES IN FOCUS
Luke 24:2-3,12 NKJV
But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.  Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.
Let us take a look at the first “emptiness that is full of promises”.
1. Significance of the Empty Grave.
When the women went to the tomb with spices that early morning, they found the stone had been rolled away and when they went in, they did not find the body of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:1-3).
In a conversation with one Apostle, he made this profound statement that the stone was rolled away for the women and the other disciples to be able to get into the tomb to find that Jesus had risen. It was not rolled away for Jesus to come out because when the disciples had locked themselves in a room, Jesus appeared there with them without the doors being opened. (John 20:19-23).
The empty grave gives us an assurance to find hope in the midst of our trials, challenges and problems. The moment they saw the empty tomb, they were reminded of the promise of the Lord Jesus that He would rise on the third day of His crucifixion.
When we remember the empty grave, we are reminded that hope is alive because Jesus is alive. Nothing can entomb us that the Lord cannot free us from.
Let us see the big picture of an empty grave, no matter any adversity in life that seems to keep us burried. We have hope in the risen Christ.
Precious Holy Spirit help me not to waver in my faith when going through trials.
Thought For The Day
Let us walk by faith to make sure the empty grave makes a positive impact in our lives.
