My dear friends, as we head into this weekend, I hope your week has been good, and that you realized some of your goals? The Lord be praised.

 

There is a covering that shelters from all adverse conditions and situations. It is a covering that operates in all dimensions of existence, spiritual and physical. It is powered by the very essence of Jehovah Himself. Against this offering, there can be no opposition, because flowing through it is the eternal Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ; and in it the Executive powers of the Holy Spirit is manifested. This covering, dear friends is the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.

It is not uncommon for people in difficult or threatening situations to call out thus – “blood of Jesus”; and do not be surprised that this phrase finds its way into the mouth of even those who do not profess the Christian…

SHM Weekend Tonic_28/09/2012_Heaps Upon Heaps!

It was an ordinary day like this, it involved human beings like us. They came upon the anointed of God, not in peace but with anger and hatred. They had just manipulated members of his family,

breaching his natural line of defense. He was bound, giving them unfair advantage. So They assumed by their number and chicanery that they would have the upper hand. They reasoned like men. 

He saw them coming, he knew their number; but just Iike one who knew his God, he slew them under the anointing, heap upon heaps! Not one of his assailants remained, not a single one of them! They were trounced, vanquished! Why? Those who know their God shall not only be strong, of a truth we will do exploits!

I don’t care much about what you may be going through because I know the name by…

KEEP THE FAITH, YOU SHALL EXCEL!

Good day, dear friends. Today I feel led to encourage someone out there who thinks time is running out on him or her. Keep the faith, God has not forgotten you. In His season for your manifestation, no power or force from the pit of hell can stop you. And there is that season for every human being, trust me.

While you are waiting for your own manifestation of success, what do you do? PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE! My friends, opportunity without adequate preparation is a recipe for failure. Read up on your areas of interest, ask questions of people who have done similar things before – not just those who succeeded at them, but even those who failed at them.

Second, deal with the fear issue in your life – Many fear failing at whatever they want to do because of what people will say. Hello, whether you succeed or…

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 14. NOT MONEY, PLEASE.

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 1
God has never and will never think in monetary terms. Show me one thing He created with money and I’d shut up. None?
So, I encourage you to stop praying amiss for money. I make bold to say that no amount of night vigils or fasting will put money in your pocket or food on your table. Anybody who teaches you otherwise does not himself understand the way God prospers. Why? Because it is contrary to the principles of our principled God.
Pray instead for ideas. The chair you sit on came from someone’s idea. In fact every raw material God created in this world have made people and nations money because they generated ideas to mine and market them! It is not enough for you, for example to catch game. You must add value to it by knowing how to roast it!
Not knowing how to add value to natural resources remain one major problem for developing economies despite in some cases vast mineral resources. Some have oil, but cannot refine it. Some have coffee, cocoa but cannot turn them into chocolate products. So, they can only export them as raw materials to developed economies who add value to these raw materials and sell it back at exorbitant values.
I repeat, pray not for money; instead pray for unique ideas. Like God gave Jacob in Laban’s house; like He endowed Joseph with in Egypt; such as He gave without measure to the Lord Jesus Christ who went about doing good relieving those oppressed of the devil.
Think ideas, pray for solution to problems that will make a difference in your environment. And then, sit back and watch your finances explode. Been there, done that; so this is no theoretical teaching.
That’s how you prosper, that’s how you conquer poverty. It’s your time to shine and I see the season changing for you.
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 13. “TOMORROW”

SHM_Tomorrow, 01

 

Dear friends, how are you this week? Hope you Year has been profitable thus far? Hallelujah!

Growing up, my parents drummed in my siblings and me that man has no power to achieve anything by himself. I am sure this resonates with some of you too. The foundation for this admonition is that only the Almighty controls the future, and we have to plan (set goals, prepare strategies for these goals etc.) firmly within His power over the future.

I want to remind some of us who may have forgotten, or any for who this is fresh teaching, that man’s times and seasons are outside the say so of any man. Yes, no matter how smart those goals may be, or hung-ho those strategies may be, you need to be alive to execute them!

A visit to the cemetery would reveal the powerlessness of man on this issue of “tomorrow”. There lies many who used to be accomplished, those for whom doors were opened and food served on silver platters! Those doors, the food and silver platters would now be used be some other fellow! Akika, Olodumare! [great God!}

So, my friends, the wise thing to do is ALWAYS to pre-fix our plans thus: “If the Master wills it, and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.” This is wisdom indeed, as we commit all to the pleasure of He who rules and controls the affairs of all men. It also show our total dependence on He who knows tomorrow from yesterday! Anything else does not really speak to application of knowledge.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 12. CAPACITY TO MEDITATE.

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 2
Creativity does not just happen; it does not stand alone. It begins with a thought process. It is ends with a thought process! All forms of creativity are done in between the two ‘thought modes’. Take an example. The creation of a plastic chair. It does not just happen.
 
There would have been the initial concept stage when what is needed is determined – an elegant chair, made of plastic. Then would have come the design stage, with all that would have gone into it – materials, shape, weight, drawings etc. Only then would the manufacturing stage begin. Once a product is birthed, then the ‘second though mode kicks in – marketing, commercials etc.
 
In effect, capacity to master the ‘thought modes’ ensures successful creativity. So, do you have capacity to meditate, to think things through in an orderly fashion? That is the focus of our wisdom titbit this week.
 
Now, meditation has been defined as continued or extended thought, reflection or contemplation. To meditate on something is to give that thing deep thought, refection, quiet time, brainwork, pondering. Do you have capacity to do that on any particular area of your work or enterprise?
 
If the answer for now is NO, do not despair. There is a way out. And that is by developing the capacity to do just that – think deep, reflect, spend time in quiet contemplation, exercise your brain power, and ponder. It may sound high sounding, but it is really not. Truth is every sound human mind has this capacity at one level or the other.
 
See, before you settle on a meal, for instance, you would have gone through this process; only that you did not recognise it as a meditative process because it usually is a short process. It is the same pattern THAT YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO STRETCH OUT! Simple as that! Only difference is that as each field of endeavour becomes technical, so would the meditative process be.
 
Begin today, set out time just to be alone to think things through. If you know us, you will know we encourage baby steps. Extend the contemplative period as you grow. No shame in jotting things down. No shame in how long it takes! But being already!
 
Now, go ahead and shine this week. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 11. GRATITUDE & GRACE

SHM_HELPING HAND, 01

 

The CHRISTIAN race starts and ends with grace – Charis. Something you have not worked for is grace. For example, nobody has the capacity to pay for sin. Salvation comes in, because we are saved. And everything we can ever gain from salvation is by grace! Therefore, no man can fulfil potential without God’s help.

But we take this grace for granted at times. How? The fact that it is grace does not mean we should just keep receiving ad infinitum. We must give back. For me, gratitude is the proper response to grace. Great men who keep increasing understand, and have mastered this principle – “Receive and Give”.

Jesus Christ already paid mankind upfront at Calvary, so we all owe God our service, in one form or the other! I encourage you this week, do not stay only at the receiving end; find a way to give back by diligent service! That is how to show gratitude, and be positioned to receive more grace. Serve others, help others, love all. Simple, right?

Not at all. We live in a world of personalised pronouns, “me”. “I”, “mine” etc. We tend not to see beyond our immediate comfort zones. But, trust me, there are others far beyond your immediate vision range who are hurting, who are hungry, who are oppressed. We all owe it as a debt of gratitude for our own grace, to reach out, to comfort, to help – in all ways that we can.

Can you do that for He who loved us before we could even love Him? Thank you! Reach out today, show someone the love of Christ Jesus! It may just be a smile that you sow in another’s life that will make a difference, it may be a word of comfort, it may be a lending ear to a troubled soul. And it would make the world of difference.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!
