Don’t Prostitute my efforts for righteousness


As I sat at my dinning table, read my bible and meditated on God’s promises and his words, my thoughts drifted to the ways of man. If judgements were left in our hands, oh man, the earth would not experience its fullness thereof and the world and they that dwell there in. It is so discouraging sometimes when all those around you condemns your every effort to turn from your evil ways. It is astonishing how man in its design could forget the actuality of the words of God. Weren’t we born in sin and shaped in iniquity? Have we not or have we never committed sins that are internal and sins that are external? Have we not repeatedly fight battles within our mind and have we not fell in the pit of temptation?

I dear you to find a human, that one person whom have never sinned and have never been through trials and colours of temptations. If you have found that person other than Jesus Christ who became man amongst us for a while, I don’t want to meet him or her. Their existence would be filled with lies. As I remembered how low I felt after my disernment of an event, God reminded me of his words, ‘For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.’

I smiled in the reassurance of my adoption in his Kingdom. That when others seemingly don’t know my name or refuse to accept my name, God knows my name. It is evident that I am not perfect, that I have done some unrighteous things, that I have been evil in my ways and thoughts but to God be the Glory, all Glory and honour belongs to him, I am forgiven, all my charges were taken and nailed to the cross, hands and feet. John said, For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believeth in him must not perish but have everlasting life. With this promise, we ought to trust his forgiveness and his supernatural power to annoint us and affirm us even when man denies us or tried to block us from that which God have predestined us for. I love God and I’m inlove with his majesty. I pray each day for God to release me of my flesh and grant me a fresh annointing that I may walk militantly in his spirit and develop a personal relationship with God. By this I mean, to worship him even when situations forces me to be dry, pray fervently, interactively and intimately with God that his voice would be so familiar as he speaks to me that I would have recognized him by his voice.
