“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat. The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” ///
Whenever I pray, I bring up some of these passages from the Bible to my memory:-
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:7-11 NASB
My day didn’t start very well. I heard something early in the morning that made me feel sad and hopeless.
So, I knelt down at my bedside; I praised and worshiped God and left my anxious thoughts to Him and got on with my day.
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7NASB Continue reading New Creation “Doctrine”→
You know what? When I started this Bible study thingy, I thought I would share with you some of the most amazing truths of God that I’ve learned through time.
Little did I know that I was trying to teach the most brilliant men and women of God🙇♀️. Very embarrassing for sure!
I am serious when I say this before God: I am learning a great deal from your spirit filled and anointed comments. If you guys can write like that as a first-grade student, I wonder how you would write as a PhD candidate.
For the past two days, including today, I studied 1 Timothy 6.
What a beautiful and fantastic chapter of the Bible to study.
Oh, how I love the word of God!
“Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands are always with me and make me wiser than my enemies. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word. I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.” Psalm 119:97-104 NIV
“If you want to destroy a society, do the following three things:
1. Target and destroy the family in the society
2. Target and destroy the education system of the society
3. Target and destroy iconic individuals the new and young generation of the society looks up to.
A4P Guest: I am a born-again Christian, so is my wife. My wife of five years now refused to sleep with me. She sleeps in another bedroom. She started sleeping in this other room like a month ago, now little by little, she moved all her stuff from our bedroom to that room. As a Christian, I am struggling what to do with this kind of situation. How can a marriage continue like this?
A4P: Did you ask your wife why she left her bedroom?
A4P Guest: I always ask her, “Why didn’t you sleep in your bedroom,” but the only answer I get is, “I am still in my house.”
A4P: Hmm! Well, something must have happened to her. So, what happened between you and her on the day she first left her bedroom?
A4P Guest: Nothing new! We went to bed and I wanted to be intimate with her and she immediately came out of the bed and said, “It is better for both of us if I sleep in another room. Then, we will both get enough sleep.”
A4P: Okay. Help me so I can help you here. No woman leaves her bedroom for no reason. So, tell me the things your wife often complains about.
A4P Guest: We have two little ones and I always tell her to put them to bed early so we can have our time together, to nurture our marriage.
A4P: “Nurture our marriage.” I am totally impressed here. My brother, if you are not willing to tell me everything, I can’t help you.
A4P Guest: I am trying to tell you everything. She complains that I don’t help her with the kids but the thing is I work hard the whole day. She is a stay-at-mom. I come home feeling very tired. After I come from work, she wants me to go out for a walk with her and the kids. She doesn’t understand how tired I get when I come home. Plus, she doesn’t like to see me relaxing, you know. After a long day, what I need is a few minutes to wind down, like watch TV or be on social media and she always complains about that. You always say in your teaching, don’t nag your husbands, but my wife doesn’t apply that good advice. She nags me a lot. She wants me to pray with her and attend Bible study on Zoom and I told her, I will take care of the kids while she does her spiritual thing. I believe in God and I keep my spirituality to myself. And she always asks me about how much I make and to put her name in my bank account. I told her that I would do that but she keeps nagging me about it. She always says, “What if something happens?” I told her not to worry about tomorrow as the Bible says but she doesn’t listen. Now she fights with my sister and my mom who live in another state. I told her to change her behavior. I am not sure what her spirituality is all about. She doesn’t even know how to get along with people. My mom and my sister are born-again Christians and they know how to live with others. They apply the teaching of the Bible into their own lives. So, I told her to change her behavior but she doesn’t listen to me. These days, I think she wants to be the head. How can a house be led by two leaders? There are many things between us, but I still believe that she shouldn’t leave her bedroom.
A4P: Please pass on my message to her: I am very surprised that you didn’t leave your house. I am sure you did it for the sake of your little ones. May God repay you for what you’re doing for your kids. And this is my advice for you: My friend, what you need now is not marriage counseling, but counseling for yourself to be a person God calls you to be. Then after that you may seek counseling to learn how to be a husband to your wife. Then after you do this, seek marriage counseling. Unless you do these things in this order, things will soon get worse. May God help you! ///
Reading books makes life manageable, bearable, and enjoyable for me in this dark world.
Yes, I love reading books but only books written by spiritual men and women.
Well, the word “spiritual” today may mean anything ranging from a person who claims to see Jesus Christ in his bedroom every morning, to the person who creates his own god and puts him in a chimney and worships.
