2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 16. INNER EYES, PART 2

SHM_Meditation, 01_person-meditating
Hello there, friends. Last week we began our understanding of the fact that the spiritual controls the physical. Thank you for the enquiries and questions that came. I am trusting Him that He will provide answers to those questions this week.
 
First, what are those inner eyes? Simple. Our hearts. No, not the physical one that pumps blood and keeps us alive. Another. You can call it your spiritual heart if you want. Remember that out of our hearts flow issues of life? And that the heart of man is desperately wicked? These admonitions of the Lord refer, not to the physical heart, but the spiritual one.
 
Second, how do we deploy this inner heart to affect what happens in the spiritual realm, that now impacts the physical? By placing it at the disposal of the force that controls all realms – He who sits upon the circle of the earth and makes the earth His footstool. We constantly need to ask Him to open the eyes of our heart to see as He sees. Trust me, once you get a hang of this, your decision making would go to another level, as you would see (some will say ‘sense’ things before they happen and with wisdom, prepare for them). Trust me also, it is such a sweet advantage that makes those around you wonder!
 
Third, if you resist the temptation to use this advantage for selfish ends (as is likely for many), then another vista would open unto you to influence what happens in and around you. Because the ability to horn this grace depends on what use you put it.
 
Let me leave you, my friends, with this – why not meditate on this – Father, open the eyes of my heart to see as you see?
 
I see many doing great and mighty things from now on. We love you!

2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 15. INNER EYES, PART 1.

SHM_Meditation, 01_person-meditating
Every human being is equipped with 2 sets of eyes. I know, strange, right? Let me explain. We have our pair of eyes that sees outward, that takes in images and sends the signals of them to our brains to decode and interpret in nano seconds. Yes.
 
But there is also our inner eyes. Not visible to the sight of others, but really it is that which ought to drive our lives. I pray I get inspiration not to make this too complicated. This is the way of it.
 
The physical realm is a manifestation. It is not where decisions that matter are taken. Life changing, situation altering decisions take place in a realm above this physical. Whatever faith you profess, this is the truth of it. What happens therefore in our lives, in our environment are influenced by decisions taken outside those lives, that environment. Lord, help me!
 
So, simply put, there is this realm where important decisions that we see and live through are made. AND THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT YOU AND I CAN ACCESS, AND INFLUENCE THE DECISIONS THERE! That is part of what being a little lower than Elohim means! How do we do this?
 
Well that will be our discuss next week. I need to leave us with this thought though. The spiritual influences the physical, and you have a say on how that works in your life and circumstance. So, please use this week to meditate on this and we will take it up from there next week. God bless you!
 
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 9. STOP ANNOUNCING YOURSELF.

SHM_Announcement, 2

 

It is natural for every human being to desire recognition. Something in us crave it. And smart people around us who know this, often times exploit this to get away with stuff! So, we all have the need to be accorded respect. Psychologists have a word for it – AFFIRMATION. It happens in families, in business relationships etc. So, this of itself, it is not a bad thing.

But have you noticed how it is nowadays, that some folk do not even wait for people to accord them recognition? No. They frontally do it themselves. I am sure you have heard things like, “Do you know who I am?”, “Even if I have to mention it myself, God used me to do so and so…”? I have heard it said somewhere, that it is a Nigerian thing – everyone is a bossman. But I have seen it happen with non-Nigerians too; so it got me thinking. And I discovered something.

It has to do with the greatest enemy of man. No, not the devil, sorry. It is that thing called EGO. Some call it pride. Whatever appellation we give it, it is our greatest enemy. Why? Because any one of us who cannot confront and tame it is already in a losing battle of life? Why?

Because it is the Almighty God Himself who fights such people. Remember what I shared with you in Week 10 about He being a jealous God? OK. This is how it works. So, you desire recognition, and you go out of your way to ‘pluck’ it from the mouth of others, or just ‘megaphone’ the thing yourself, what you are doing in essence is to place yourself in God’s stead.

My father in the Lord reminded us one of Jesus’ truths in a unique way many years ago. The gist of it is this – when you get anywhere, whether invited or not, seat far from the place of honor. How wonderful, and in the sight of many it would be if you are then invited over to the front! Conversely, how ego-busting it would be, if after settling in front, you are asked to please vacate for another more honorable? Getting my drift?

If you are worthy of honor, trust me, it will come. At a time most beneficial to you. Ask Brother Mordecai! My dear friend, do yourself a favor, stop announcing yourself or your worth. Leave that job to others.

Now, go ahead and shine this week. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 8. PARADIGM SHIFT.

 

SHM_PARADIGM SHIFT, 1

To advance in life, to move from one level to another does not start with the labour (physical) that you put in.
 
No, it begins as a mental exercise. In your imagination.
 
Sadly, this appears a bridge too far for many! Often times, most people want to work in ‘settled/stable” environment. What I mean is they want a state of certainty – processes ‘tried and tested’; all they need so is just slide in, and enjoy the ride. What fun is in that, just to be part of the crowd? Nah!!!
 
Dear friends, trust me, what advances the course of mankind is thoughts outside the box – leading to inventions, innovations, new discoveries. To achieve this, we need a paradigm shift – from the norm to destructive creations. This, successfully done, makes you a pioneer of sorts, a leader of thought – now that is becoming creme de la creme!
 
To achieve this state of mind, you need to develop your capacity to dream unconventional dreams. You will also need to develop capacity for the needed grit (read hard work) to get you there.
 
And then, be willing to learn from entrepreneurs/achievers/pioneers who have walked the same path successfully before you. You know, of course, that you do not necessarily have to personally interface with these successful pioneers to learn from them? Get their materials – books, cds, etc. Research them (use google or other search engines as a starting place), and carve your own niche.
 
We encourage to begin the journey to shift your mindset in the direction that nothing is impossible! Begin today dear friend.
 
We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 4. WHERE DO YOU LIVE – THE PAST OR PRESENT?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_future past present sign illustration

 

 

My dear reader, how has your year been so far? Mine has been great, praise God! This week, laid on my heart to share with you is that success and failure are dangerous in equal dimensions! That sounds strange, doesn’t it? If all we work towards is succeeding, how can we then interpose a danger in it? If all we aim to change is failure to success, why then glorify failure, right? Come along with me, and see for yourselves.

Success becomes a foundation to much more success ONLY for those who use whatever success they achieve as a stepping stone or leverage to other successes. Get your first, say, real estate, and leverage it to get more – that grows your portfolio, doesn’t it? But not many are able to turn success into a leverage for more. These are those who are easily satisfied with whatever it is they achieve. They build a monument to the achievement, and religiously relive it, year in year out!

They become so successful about the past that they fail to prepare for the future in the present. Many whose earlier successes turned to failure fall squarely in this same category.

Now for failure, the same principle applies. A lot wallow in the pain and regret of deals gone bad, or relationships gone burst! Some even wear it as a badge of honor! Come on, already! Your present life must not be held hostage by the past, so that your future can be better!

Every one of us is better served leaving things of the past just there – in the past; and pressing toward better marks! Forget the myriad reasons why you failed, learn lessons from the failure and MOVE ON, never looking back to mop or grumble. Same for successes, MOVE ON! Leave history the job of recalling and regaling others of your past successes. This is the secret of many omnipreneurs of today. {An omnipreneur takes an entrepreneurial approach to every aspect of life–work, family, community, health, finances, spirituality, and more.}

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

2018 SHM Weekly Wisdom Titbit. Week 1. YOU ARE YOUR OWN CO-CREATOR.

20120724-095835.jpg

Welcome to a brand new year! I pray that your journey will be smooth, your story positively different this year. Lines shall surely fall for you in pleasant places, if …..

‘If’ what?

If you open your mind to your primary role. That apart from the Almighty God, you are the co-creator of your life! What do I mean? Yes, God did the work of re-creation (no, not creation; but recreation. Another day, another story). Anyway, I need you to accept that no man is the finished product at birth, not even Adam!

All God did was re-create the world in its basic form, hid minerals and resources for mankind to discover, gave mankind dominion over all other creatures with an advanced mental acumen; and expects us to create the kind of world we want to live in. Same it is for you and I.

Remember that all He created was perfect, and picture yourself in that mould. He gave your life a perfect workshop, your spirit, soul and body. For you to make of it what you will. And what we become is what we co-create – the choices we make, the competences we acquire etc. We lie on the bed we make, practically.

So, this first week of 2018, I need you to remember this – you are your own co-creator. Approach this New Year with that mindset and make something out of it.

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

2016, GOALS & YOUR ROLE

  Based on reactions to my last post on 2016, Goals & Imagination, I have decided to do a follow up with this title. Many got in touch with us to know why many set goals do not end in result despite engaging their imaginative powers. Some claim this has lead to frustration; while some have given up. I trust that we should be able to address this issue here with the help of our eternal teacher, the Holy Spirit.
First, let me say this straight away – I am a praying person. Those who know me personally know that I love to pray, and by His grace my life is a testament to the efficacy of God’s manifest assistance through prayers; and I remain eternally grateful for this. 
I need to say this because of my MAIN POINT in this piece, which is :- God will not do for man what He has enabled man to do for himself! And this is where most who set goals miss it. Yes, prayers are efficacious, but to succeed (the ultimate function of set goals), you (not God) has more roles to play! Am I saying you should not pray over your goals? No! Am I saying you should not remind God that you have goals set, and need His help? No!! So what exactly am I saying?
Change the manner of your prayers already! As a vessel, I see many prayers that will not be answered by the Almighty, even if He wanted to! For example, when a person prays for God to ‘make me a millionaire’, frustration will soon set it because that is not God’s job to put physical cash in any man’s pocket! In fact, currency is alien to God’s principles! (Topic for another day, maybe) 
The correct prayer should have been for God to ‘open my mind to unique ideas for prosperity’! Reference Jacob in Laban’s employment. Show me where God ‘made him a rich man by depositing cash in his pocket’ as many pray today, and I will keep quiet. Rather, what happened? God gave Jacob a unique idea to get stripped and spotted cattle! That is the pattern through out scripture. 
Next, spend more time working on your goal(s)! It saddens me today that many religious organizations (both Christian and Moslem) encourage adherents to spend more time in places of worship than in working and meditation on their trades, jobs and professions! Or how else do you explain the plethora of religious services on work days and periods when people should be at work! And a times, several times during one day! 
Do you know what this does? It encourages people to lie and cheat; and no one who does both succeeds in a lasting manner, or gets the help of the Almighty God! See, what excuse other than lies would an employee give to his/her employer for their absence from work during working hours at the same time EVERY WEEK, other than to lie? And that is cheating the employer of time that would be paid for! Yet such people want the help of the Almighty who abhors liars? I don’t see it happening! Another thing you need to see my friends on this point, is that the pastor or imam who calls such prayer meetings during working hours is at his/her own job, while you are not!!!! Time that should be spent in creative contemplation is spent in often raucous gatherings! What imaginative thought could be done there? Beat me o. 
Third, you need to conquer your self – every flesh is prone to indiscipline. Trust me, been there, done that! Switch off that gadget, and spend time in contemplation! There is a reason why the biggest earners are the thinkers not the person of brawn! Thinkers put others to work! It is the way of the Almighty. Read the story of recreation again, how much physical effort did the Almighty God exert? Go through the amazing work of the Lord Jesus Christ, how much physical lifting did He do to calm the storm, to feed over 5000 people with 5 loaves and 2 pieces of fish? Even to raise Lazarus, He ordered others to do the physical rolling away of the tomb stone! My dear friend, learn to think – and this requires disciplining your flesh. Switch off that TV set, and pick up a book. Ignore that WIFI and your smart gadgets, just sit down in meditation! Do you have to attend that party – again? Must you go out – again? These are things the flesh luxuriate in. You have to win that battle friend.
In concluding this piece, you will notice that I have avoided mentioning the steps mentioned in my previous post on “2016, Goals & Imagination”, so please go back to them that piece.
