V-Day Revelation

I pray we realise that whatever we are a part of ; family , company , charitable organisations, relationships, marriage and the list is seemingly endless ;

that we are rooted , grounded and built up enough in ” who we are in God ” , deriving our Identity as Sons and Daughters of The King , knowing that our “do” is not our “who”

so that ,

whatever it is that we are a part of ?

Has value because of us .

We don’t have value because of ” it ” .

Whatever that ” it” maybe .

I pray we are humble yet confident enough to walk into that business meeting , that boardroom , that studio , that classroom ,that clinic,  that whatever it is that forms a part of your world ,

as Sons or Daughters of The King ,

Fully aware of our Spiritual Identity and Inheritance in Him.

As Children of Light ?

We don’t have value because of things .

Things have value because of US !

Hallelujah !

#LaughItOff

When folks call you spiritual ?

Laugh it off .

Everyone is spiritual.

We are not our  bodies .

We are spirits .

And the walk we have in The Earth , as a result , becomes our ” spiritual walk ” .

The only relevant question is :

Which side does it have a bent toward ?

The dark or The Light ?

We may never be an absolute of either , and that’s okay .

But whatever our ” spiritual walk ” is ?

Let’s at least try and keep in step with The Light .

And let it shine .

Cease Fire 

There is power in the wait .

I know we loathe it .It’s not fashionable nor favourable to us . We want instant results . The ” microwave theory ” .

I get it .

But believe it or not ,

There is infinite power in delayed gratification.  Anything worth accomplishing is definitely worth the wait . And I personally do believe that the manifestation of something that merely began as a quirk in your mind , a stir in your spirit or an echo in your heart , is nothing more than a triumphant resonance of a part of your journey done well . 

Done in passionate patience

Done in steely conviction

Done in unshakable belief

Done in undaunted tenacity

Done in raw honesty

Done in organic faith

… a faith that caused you to sense it before you saw it … a Revelation before the manifestation … a pulsation before the Promise … a draw before the Vision , a test before the triumph …

A faith that embarked you on a journey … a journey  towards the fulfilment of a Promise that began in the unrelenting rumblings in the pit of your gut , a journey replete with trials , challenges ,  living -on-the-edge moments ; an adventure so magnificent that through it all , it  served to consolidate enduring deposits on the inside of you that will stand the test of time . 

Time and time again .

So the next time you find yourself confronted, you know where to tap into and draw from .

You become seasoned in battle , in faith , in experience , in life .

And the manifestation of that which you celebrate?

It’s a mere physical phenomenon pointing to something greater .

Your grit .

Your guts.

Your God .

Let it just suffice to say there is power in the wait .

Cease Fire .

God Promise or The Promise of God 

We have all been there .

As naughty , seemingly innocent kids !

Wicked and adorably mischievous , but when caught red handed , we would inevitably scream , ” I won’t do that again ”

The sceptic on the other front , suspicious to the core , would counter , ” are you sure ? ”

Pat came the reply.

” God Promise ”

And repeat . 

That was one phase , one season of our lives  ,  usually the most nostalgic of all times : our childhood.

But did you notice how God’s sense of humour knows no bounds ? 

And as we grew older , seemingly more mature , I guess , somewhere along the path , we learnt that if we had made broken promises out of a childish , guilt free , blameless heart , 

He didn’t .

True to His Word , we have grown together as a community , into the Sons and Daughters of The King , a doting Father whose Promise is anything but broken .

Pristine and Passionate ;

His Promise stands like rock .

Irrefutable , Unyielding , Guaranteed and Immutable .

His Promise Stands .

I pray we take to heart today that we will together choose to trust what He has Promised us :

Freedom

Healing

Guidance

Protection

Deliverance

Constant companionship

Restoration

Resurrection

Life More Abundant

( and that’s a rather nanoscopic view ) !

But because we have his seal of approval , we can boldly go in and ” possess ” the Promise of God , in its entirety.

Talking of His Personal Promise on our respective lives ?

That dream , that car , that house , that studio , that relationship , that book, that World tour , that song album , that art gallery , that venture , that prophecy ?

In His Name , we have it as our Inheritance, but it is upto us to put our faith and trust in The Only One who neither fails nor forsakes us , correspond with Him , believe The Truth that IS His Word , co – partner with Him ,

And Possess The Promise .

By Grace , through Faith .

We do our part , and He will do His .

As Christine Caine puts it , ” He is responsible for the consequences of our obedience to Him ” .

And He is .

” He who Promised IS Faithful ” , Scripture asserts . 

That’s His Promise .

Not a care free , void , emergency exit of a promise we yelped in our juvenile years ,

that’s a   ” God Promise ” .

But a Promise of God ?

Unimpeachable

Unassailable

Unchallengeable

Unquestionable . 

A Promise we can stand on .

Now THAT’S a God Promise or a Promise of God .

It doesn’t matter anymore .

Does it ?

💫

God is seldom early , but He is never late

Omniscient & Omnipresent , Creative and Caring ; the Master who made you will not fail nor falter .

It’s not in His DNA .

Whatever it is that we believe for in our lives , individually and corporately , He may not come when you want Him to come , but hey ! Keep the faith .

He is always on time .

In big things , in small things .

Let’s break this down .

Just when you were on the verge of tossing that article in the bin , He spoke a Word into your spirit that served to not only produce a delightful plethora of emotions and experiences, but also emerged as a strong testimony to the creative power of words .

Just when you gave into the temptation of having that chocolate mousse pie on the last day of your special weight loss diet , He nudged you , you did obey  and you were redeemed . 

Just when you almost caved into that ungodly relationship , He gave you a Revelation of Truth in Spirit , and seemingly “unknowingly” , you chose not death , but Life .

Just when you thought your dream would probably not see the light of day , he opened up the windows of Heaven and True to His Word , indeed proved to be the ” provision for your vision ” .

Just when you swore this was your last round of Hail Mary’s for the absolute recovery of that loved one who had fallen prey to the dreaded C-word : Cancer ; guess what ? something in your spirit didn’t let you give up , you did go through , and with you , so did your friend . 

Just when you thought you would never conceive a child , and after much wrestling with Him , finally decided to open up your heart and adopt that gorgeous blue eyed baby boy ; a miracle ! Not only did He transform your heart into one willing to love another’s child ( now your own ) but also blessed you with a natural conception the night prior to bringing your precious ” chosen ” one home .

Just when you thought He would never bring a spouse into your life and finally not only made peace with but even learned to find abundant joy in your whole , single life ; bam ! You met him . Through Him .

And we could go on ..

Bottom line ?

Whatever it is that seems like a battle , a tussle , a fight , a test of faith ; wait it out and wait upon Him , as Scripture says .

In my experience, He is not merely interested in getting us  “things” ( though He does take note ! ) but is infinitely more interested in transforming the spiritual condition of our hearts in the process , stretching us , growing us , maturing us into well developed , seasoned individuals that have not only evolved into higher levels of resilience and faith , but have the gratitude and the humility to give Him ALL the Glory , when The Promise does come to pass , when you ARE Delivered , when you ARE Redeemed , when you do have another go at life and basically , when you have lived long enough in Faith to testify :

God is seldom early , but He is never late .
