2017 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITB _WEEK 2_ENCOURAGE YOUR SPOUSE

 

Encourage your spouse to flourish. By it you will stand beside a successful, grateful partner. Doing otherwise, for whatever reason, is the epitome of folly. We don’t want that, do we?

Let not simmering resentment rob you of the blessings of seeing your spouse succeed. See, no matter what he or she becomes, no one (not even the spouse) can validly discount your contribution. Even if no gratitude is shown to you, as some fear, you will benefit directly or indirectly. Someone close to your heart will be blessed by the prosperity/success/fulfillment of your spouse.

In any case, it is better, is it not, to sow that good seed and reap the rewards elsewhere? I encourage you today, assist your spouse to be the best he/she can be. You will be fulfilled thereby, trust me!

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

SHM REFLECTIONS – FORGIVENESS

“Forgiveness”. A simple word, but a though act to follow through with.

My dear friends, un-forgiveness is a danger to your well being, cancerous tumor that has led to the death – physical and spiritual of many. And the enemy of our 534253_407228992664539_957692351_nsoul knows just how to stoke it. The devil gives man a plethora of reasons never to forgive. But for each of his wiles to work, he capitalizes on man’s ego (a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance).

If we can do a dispassionate check on the real reason why we hold unto offense, we would see it boils down to these: ‘who does he take me for?’ or ‘why does she think she can do this to me and get away with it?’ or ‘I will show you that I am not easy to cheat (or put down etc.). Or things in that region. And the devil is a master at playing on man’s emotions.

There are many recipes out there on how to forgive and move on. I crave your indulgence to add one more. It might be hard to swallow but it may just save your life.

Regard yourself less, in fact without esteem, without honour in the sight of men. This way you will feel less offense and will not have to deal with the baggage that comes with un-forgiveness.

See, when you refuse to forgive people, you give such people power to control your life! Simple. For as long as you habour un-forgiveness, your life is no longer yours. How? You think offence, you meditate on offence, time best spent in getting and working on ideas to move your life forward will be tied down to this negative emotion. Guess what? You will live, breath and spew offense, and in the process alienate your destiny helpers. Because unforgiving clouds your thought process is clouded, you are prone to errors that are best avoided! YOUR LIFE IS RULED BY OFFENSE!

Finally, let me counsel – forgiveness is not for the other person, IT IS ACTUALLY FOR YOU. No matter how painful the process would be, release your offenders and move on with your life.

You were created to excel, and excel you shall IJMN. We love you! Shalom.

 

SHM REFLECTIONS – Pastor Disguises to Teach Christs’ Love … WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IF YOU WERE IN THAT CONGREGATION?

Homeless Man Gives Church a True Meaning Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It’s something you live by and share with others Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured to the left) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning.

He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service….only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food….NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit in the back.

He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him. As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation……..”We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek”….The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation…..The homeless man sitting in the back stood up…..and started walking down the aisle…..the clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him….he walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment….then he recited:

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning…many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame…. he then said….Today I see a gathering of people……not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples…when will YOU decide to become disciples? He then dismissed service until next week…….Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It’s something you live by and share with others.

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IF YOU WERE IN THAT CONGREGATION?

1. Father, I thank you that I am still alive to realize my destiny in you. May your Holy name be praised forever.
2. Every force arrayed against my destiny in Christ Jesus, the power in the blood of Jesus speaks against your potency from today in Jesus’ mighty name.
3. I refuse to be removed from the divine agenda for my life, by forces past or present, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, shake me to my senses where I have made mistakes. Awaken in me holy anger towards sin in Jesus mighty name.

Please pray this diligently all through this month and you shall see the manifestation of His power.

You shall all excel IJMN!
