‘He always does exactly what he says.’ 2 Corinthians 1:19

Ever had a friend break a promise? The cheque doesn’t come, the repairman doesn’t show up, your date doesn’t call? Count on it, people will let you down. But God won’t, ‘He always does exactly what he says. He…fulfills all…[His] promises’ (2 Corinthians 1: 19-20 TLB). Knowing that enables you to keep walking by faith while you wait for them to be fulfilled. James MacDonald says: ‘It’s the not-knowing that crushes us. We doubt…worry…despair…falter and fail…If we knew how this was going to play out we’d be okay. We can take a bad day…month…year…or decade…as long as we know how it ends. A health crisis…a question about your marriage…uncertainty over a child…we all have areas we need to hold on to what God said…He knows what he promised, He can’t lie, and He can’t forget. He’ll deliver on time. Who else can make a promise like that? Now I wish I could tell you it always figures out perfectly in our lifetime, but I’d be lying…You can’t make sense of God’s promises with this life only. You must factor in the reality of eternity…Eternity brings it all together…eternal life…and the assurance of heaven are what make His promises so precious.’ Victor Frankl, who survived the horrors of the Holocaust, said, ‘A weak faith is weakened by predicaments and catastrophes, whereas a strong faith is strengthened by them.’ A Sunday school class was memorising Psalm 23 and little Tommy couldn’t get beyond the first verse. On the big day he stepped up to the microphone, grinned at the audience and announced, ‘The Lord is my Shepherd-and that’s all I know!’ And it’s all you need to know for now.

This is the condition and if you follow it will, you will not fail.

Get yourself ready to receive:
If you say YES i am willing and ready Lord…
Be it unto you according to your faith so prepare to receive your bountiful blessing which will come over you right now where you are sitting as you flow through this massage.

This is the first instruction from above if you are willing to receive such an uncommon blessing.

Imagine you as a huge vessel:
Be a large vessel with no taps below. Meaning your heart must be fully for God and God alone in every thing and in all areas of your life. God is saying that your heart is divided as He can see right now. Part to your self interest, part to your ministry, part to your wife, part to your children, part to your friends and many more taps some full and some half open. Can you see the picture of a vessel with the taps below it? Taps under your Vessel that makes you dry up from day to day when your focus are no inline with God’s will in your life.

Forbid this:
You say God is first in your life but you put other things first before him and He does not like that my dear friends. Please allow your vessel to be filled with the fulness of God. Don’t try doing things for others but allow yourself being filled up and overflowing. Allow the overflow to come from above and not from you opening the taps below which will mean or be seen as the blessings are from you. No No No says father God. He wants to be thee provider for all your needs without your help or doings. You much be filled to the bream without you doing anything apart from praising father God for all.

What happens when you are totally full:
Others will be blessed as you come around them. How do you like that people? Your appearance and presence will change the scene of the area. Because you are around people will be blessed by your being around them. Don’t you want that uncommon blessing? People will come running to you just to hear an encouraging word from you that will build there day.

Give glory to the Lord if this words have opened your eyes today to start a new chapter in your life before this year 2009 ends.

Hallelujah to Jesus….!!!!!!!

May father God richly and bountifully bless you all in all through the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour.

Apostle K. Lave / Zurich, Switzerland.

The value of timing

You and me are products of the decisions that we make or have made in life.I wish it can be said over and over again,timing is an important skill,or virtue when it comes to determining your tomorrow.They say procrastination is the thief of time.So many people live in regrets over what they could have done,opportunities that they have lost.

We need to be strategically positioned,but above all else we need to very good and sharp when it comes to timing.Am sure we have all heard this statement,»Being in the right place and at the right time»I cant have said it better than this for sure,timing is crucial in determining your success believe you me.The friends you hang out with,your mind set all positions you to the perfect time,life is full of people who have done extremely well successful,mail becoz of their ability to seize the times that came their way.Don’t live life regretting,make very good use of your time.Have you ever thought and imagined why we only celebrate birthday once in a year and not twice per year..?It simply means that,make the best of the times that you have today.

The bible is also full,of men and women who maximized the time in various opportunities and circumstances.There is no need to feel left out,your time is there for you,but you may not know that or fail to make great use of it.Do what you can while you can.Read the following and begin to realize that above all else time matters most and timing is crucial to what you are going to be and achieve in life.
There is a time for everything. So says Solomon in his supreme wisdom. Yet timing is a lost art for most people, especially in our opportunistic culture today. So, do you understand “times”? There’s a lot in the subject of time and timing. So this is just an introduction to the topic. You will remember that end time prophecies refer to such things as “time, times and half a time” (Daniel 12:7, Revelation 12:14).
Jesus knew the times and said of himself, “my time has not yet come” (John 7:6,8).
Members of one of the twelve tribes of Israel, Issachar, were noted for their ability to understand the times, thus knowing what Israel should do in various situations (1Chronicles 12:32). Knowing the significance of times and seasons enables people to make the right choice at the right time.
King Solomon gave us a poetic celebration of the reality of times and seasons.
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
The most sobering reflection on ‘time’ comes out of the life of Elisha, the powerful prophet of Israel, approx 850 years before Christ. After this man of God healed the Syrian leper, Naaman, he declined to accept the lavish and valuable gifts offered him by the grateful military captain. Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, however, had no qualms about getting a share of the goods and so he secretly went to Naaman and asked for some of the booty, which Naaman happily gave him. When Gehazi returned to his post Elisha challenged him, since the prophet knew by divine revelation what Gehazi had done.
Significant in Elisha’s challenge to Gehazi is the issue of ‘timing’.
“And Elisha said to him, Didn’t my heart go with you when the man (Naaman) turned from his chariot to meet you? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and olive-yards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?” 2Kings 5:26
Elisha knew something about timing that Gehazi did not know. It was not the right time to get wealth. Gehazi’s problem was not greed, nor deception, but ignorance of the time in which he was living.
Now, considering how vital timing is in such a case, how well are we acquainted with timing and seasons in our lives? I suspect that most of us think opportunity is all that is required. If there is an opportunity to get something then the opportunity speaks for itself. Many people end up in some kind of curse, just as Gehazi did, when they act without regard for the times and seasons.
I suggest we all need to be much more prayerful and sensitive to times and seasons. We need to seek God for insight and revelation about how times and seasons impact our lives

By Chuck Peirce

There is hope in the middle of darkness. Usually in the midst of our dark times in life, we find ourselves filled with trauma and loss. These elements hide in our very cells. Trauma is like a snapshot from a camera. The picture of the trauma is stored deep in our brains, but the Holy Spirit wants to move in such a way that we are sovereignly delivered. He wants to give us a new perspective on life and the world around us. When we do not deal with trauma effectively, we allow roots to grow that entangle our feet and keep us from moving forward on our new path of success. Trauma imprinted on our memory systems is also absorbed deep into the tissues of our brain (the processor) and affects our thoughts and our hearts. Trauma becomes the flashbulb that determines what we see and how we define the world around us. When not processed correctly, trauma will shape your world from the point of view of the incident. Trauma can produce lock-ins of fear, failure complexities, emotional distress, and anxiety, and it can even cause your organs (spleen, kidneys, pancreas) to overwork. Oh my! We may be going through a lot, but there is a way for us to overcome, to reverse the power of our dark hour, and to advance into the very best that still lies ahead. An over comer moves past defeats, past traumas, wounding, mistakes and failures to gain new strength and venture into the next season with hope. In the midst of darkness there is light. My favorite saying in life is “But God!” Your present circumstances are developing a mentality of victory within you. No matter what situation you find intruding in your life, you can shout, “But God! He is the light in my darkness!” Dark hours lie ahead, but an over comer’s anointing will break through and give you victory. One way God develops the overcoming anointing in us is by moving us past our last failure or even our last victory, and by enabling us to continue to run the race ahead. Some dark hours are not only in our future but many dark moments may also lie in our past. In other words, there were certain times that we just botched it, made a mess of things, or royally wasted our opportunity for victory or favor. We had an opportunity, we missed the opportunity, and the time of prosperity slipped past us. We listened to a wrong voice and chose a wrong path. Our desire went awry, and we had a relationship that was never meant to be. We heard God, we pursued His voice, but we somehow got tangled in the cares of the world and lost sight of the way. We started the race, got tired and dropped out. The most difficult situation in our lives occurs when we know the will of God one day but somehow make a mistake and cannot find our way on the next day. The great thing for us to know is this: There will come another day! . There is always a way back. You might have to scale a mountain or swim a river, but there is a way back or into the next phase of your life. You can survive and find the right road again. I have counseled many who have gone through terrible divorces, bankruptcies, losses of business and homes, diseases and depressions, and they have always been able to hear the Lord say, “This is your way into the new place!” Sometimes the second time around is the best! We know that “all things work together” for our good—even our mistakes, so we can rest assured that God can, and does, use our failures to teach and direct us when we humble ourselves and seek His face. Adapted from Redeeming the Time by Chuck D. Pierce, copyright 2009, published by Charisma House. This book will give you a new understanding of time and God’s redemptive plan for you—whether past, present or future. It will help you recognize God’s timing in your life and reap the rewards of a life in step with God. To order a copy click on this link

Смеяться – значит рисковать показать свою глупость,
Плакать – значит рисковать показаться сентиментальным,
Стремление к другому – риск оказаться увлеченным,
Проявление своих чувств – риск показать свое истинное я.
Кто выставляет свои мысли и мечты на суд толпы – рискует их утратить.
Кто любит – рискует никогда не узнать ответной любви,
Жизнь несет с собой риск смерти,
Надежда – риск разочарования.
Но мы должны, идти на риск, потому что самая большая опасность – не рисковать ничем.
Тот, кто ничем не рискует, не делает ничего, ничего не имеет и сам есть ничто.
Он может избежать страданий и печали, но он не способен обучаться, чувствовать, изменяться, расти, любить – он не способен жить.
Скованный цепями своих убеждений, он раб, лишенный свободы.
Свободен только тот, кто рискует.

A Father’s Heart for the Hurting Май 19, 2009

A Father’s Heart for the Hurting
By James J. Holden

STORY-~3Have you ever gone through a day and become so exhausted that all you wanted to do was flop down on the sofa and zone out in front of the TV? I recently did. It had been a long, stressful day, and I just needed some time to relax and turn off my brain for the rest of the night. However, this was not going to happen. My mind began working overtime as I was drawn into the story line.

One of the characters, a young man in his early 20s, was just days away from the birth of his first child. As the show progressed, the young man revealed that when he was 10 years old, his father left him. Now, facing the birth of twin sons, he found himself terrified at the thought of being a father. He had nowhere to turn for advice and support, and he wanted to be a better father to his kids than his dad was to him.

As I watched, I felt like my heart was breaking into a thousand pieces. I knew the pain this young man felt. I, too, have had a father who has left me fearful and unprepared for life as a man. I remember the sense of fear and hopelessness as I licked my wounds from the last round of verbal and emotional beatings from my father. I recognized the feelings this young man felt, wondering if I was doomed to repeat the same mistakes of my father.

Like the young man, I had reached out many times to other men in hope of support, advice, encouragement and love. Like him, I had been denied help by men who just didn’t want to be bothered. A few men gave me some help along the way, but because of the distance between us, they couldn’t give me the help that I needed. My desire for a man to help me through these tough issues was for the most part ignored. I had no one to reach out to, no one to help me and tell me everything would be OK. Thankfully, God did provide me with a godly mother to help me through this time. However, there were some times that it would have been more comfortable talking about certain things with a man.

As the show reached its conclusion, I wanted to just sit there and cry for the young man. I know it was only a TV show, but I longed to reach out, take him in my arms, and comfort him. Then I wanted to help him work through the grief and pain he was facing and let him know he wasn’t doomed to repeat his dad’s failure. I never want another man to have to face the hurts and pain of both a father’s rejection and the rejection of other Christian men who turned away from me in my hour of need.

It was at this moment that I felt God speak to my heart. He said, «This is only a tenth of the hurt and pain I feel every moment as I look at the faces of my men who feel alone and abandoned by their fathers. I long to be their Father, and I long for my children to rise up and be a father to these men.»

That’s when it hit me. We, as men, need to do this job. We are children of a loving heavenly Father. We need to share this same love with the younger men who have never felt a father’s love.

The apostle Paul was such a man. On his first missionary journey, he met a young man named Timothy. Timothy was a man called by God and full of promise. While he was supported by a strong mother and grandmother, he needed the influence of a godly man in his life. Paul decided to be that man. He took Timothy under his wing. He fathered Him. He let Timothy see what it meant to be a godly man throughout his life and the lives of his companions like Luke and Barnabas. As a result, Timothy became a godly man in his own right, and in time became a strong leader in the early church.

What about you? Is there a young man you could be helping? Church youth groups are full of young men who are products of divorce or abandonment. Can you reach out to them and become a godly influence in their lives? Could you be the man they seek out when they have questions or fears about their future? Could you be a source of encouragement to them in their time of need?

Ask God to give you his heart for the hurting men around you. Ask Him to open doors for you to show His love to another young man. Ask Him to use you to show the love of God to another hurting man. When He places someone in your path, ask Him for the right words and actions to help that young man. Then be obedient to what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. You never know what changes you can make to a world full of hurting young men.
