Jesus, Hope for Tomorrow

For the vision is yet for an appointed time;But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come

Christ In Me…..! It's All About God I have been asked by so many people if I was born with Polio? But I wasn't. In fact I was born just like any normal child. I had started walking and playing around with other kids, before I had Polio. I love looking at those pictures I took back then, standing on my two feet. Polio started 34 years ago, precisely in 1980. This sickness turned my life around unexpectedly, and my family as well. However, I didn't allow it to define me. Although, as a child, there was practically nothing I could do, especially, when I had to start crawling again after the incident. But God who is always faithful and ever present in all situations, had prepared people ahead for me. HE carefully placed me in care of faithful, dedicated, committed, caring, confident, and most importantly, christian Parents. They nurtured me with every care and affection at their disposal. I wasn't given any preferential treatment, but wasn't maltreated either. I was fortuned to receive required medical care. I remembered those countless days spent on admission in the hospital, with my sweet mother on my bedside. She couldn't find a place to sleep, but she's always by my side, just placing her head on my bed. My precious Father drove down from Igbaja to Ogbomoso Baptist medical center, almost every day, just to be with me. At a point in time, I wanted to give up and just accept the situation. I became depressed, all I wanted to do was just sit in my room and cry all day, asking God, why this, why me? But my Parents wouldn't let me be. They are indeed God sent. I finally found Christ in 1988. I gave my life and my all unto Him, and that was my turning point. I was baptized on December 2nd 1989 & I started a new life. You might be wondering why I am all about Jesus. He took over my life even when I didn't know Him, and I am what I am today, because of Him. God sent me, my Special parents, and then gave me amazing siblings. My sisters were and still my closest friends. They got my back all the way. My immediate sister was one who was always by my side when we were still very young, people always thought we were twins because we were really close, she's the best. You know how kids are. When they see me walking with crutches, some will be staring, some even laughing at me, but my sister wouldn't take that. You dare not cross her path then. When it comes to her big sister, she'll do anything to protect me.....lol When God took over my life, I began to see things in a new light. His gifts and talents in me started manifesting. I first joined choir in 1986, and I can say with boldness in Christ, glorifying God with my voice is a continuous testimony. Though it has not been a smooth ride, Jesus told us that in this world, we will face trials and tribulations, but we should be of good courage, because He has overcame the world. I refused to allow my situation to define me or my future. It's been rough and bumpy, but I didn't give up, and I am not about to give up. I am too blessed to be stressed. I have been through a lot, but I am still living. I have so many testimonies. I might just published a book. This is not for me, but for you to know that you don't have to be a victim. You can choose to be a victor. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and He turned my life around. He turned the hopelessness in me into a hopeful situation. He can do the same for you. I have peace that transcends human understanding. He made me see hope in what once seem like a hopeless situation. Whatever you might be going through, whatever the situation or condition, He can turn it around and make it better. It's never too late. There is nothing God cannot fix. There is nothing impossible with God. He can make a way for you, and He will, if you let Him. Turn your life over unto Him, let Him do the mending. He can give you beauty for your ashes like He did for me. This page is all about God, Speaking to all and every situation of our lives daily!

Isaiah 45:

2 I will go before you and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.

3 I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

Isaiah 62:

1 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.

2 The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory;
you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.

3 You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

4 No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married.

5 As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

Praying For You Today By David McCasland
Read: Romans 8:22–34

The Spirit himself intercedes for us . . . . [Christ Jesus] is also interceding for us. Romans 8:26, 34

When we face a perplexing situation or a tough problem, we often ask our brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for us. It’s a great encouragement to know that others who care are holding us up to God in prayer. But what if you don’t have close Christian friends? Perhaps you live where the gospel of Christ is opposed. Who will pray for you?

Romans 8, one of the great, triumphant chapters of the Bible, declares, “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. . . . The Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God” (Rom. 8:26–27). The Holy Spirit is praying for you today.

In addition, “Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (v. 34). The living Lord Jesus Christ is praying for you today.

Think about it! The Holy Spirit and the Lord Jesus Christ mention your name and your needs to God the Father, who hears and acts on your behalf.

No matter where you are or how confusing your situation, you do not face life alone. The Spirit and the Son are praying for you today!

Dear God, I bow in humble thanks for the prayers spoken by the Holy Spirit and by Your Son today—for me. What an amazing truth!

The Holy Spirit and Jesus are always praying for you.

[09/28/20]   "God wants you to know that He can fix anything. Have you ever witnessed a skilled craftsman going into an old broken down home and restoring it into something fabulous? God is the master of restoration, taking the broken and damaged and making them beautiful. Are there some things in your life that could use a little work? Allow yourself to be God's next fixer-upper project."

[09/25/20]   God Says You Are Forgiven
Rick Warren

Some of us, even though we're believers, think whenever we're having problems that God's getting even with us; that God is just trying to get back at us.

It's like the guy who was driving up to a mountain lake and, on the way up, it starts snowing, so he gets out to put chains on his tires. While he's doing this, another car comes along and slams into his car. And he watches in horror as his car goes over a cliff.

He continues up the mountain on foot, in the snow and sleet, and he's getting sick from the cold. Then, as he rounds a corner, he sees that his cabin has burned down. He starts hitting his head against the wall, and asks, "Why me, God." The heavens part and a voice says, "Because some people just tick me off."

Some of you really feel that is the way God feels about you. You think that whenever you've got a problem, God is ticked off. But the Bible says, "I am the God who forgives your sins, and I do this because of who I am. I will not hold your sins against you." (Isaiah 43:25 TEV) God doesn't hold a grudge. If you have received Jesus as your Savior, then there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ.

[09/23/20]   Delay is not Denial from God
by Rick Warren

These things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! Habakkuk 2:3 (LB)

"Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go."

The Bible is filled with examples of how God uses a long process to develop character, especially in leaders. He took eighty years to prepare Moses, including forty in the wilderness. For 14,600 days Moses kept waiting and wondering, "Is it time yet?" But God kept saying, "Not yet."

Contrary to popular book titles, there are no Easy Steps to Maturity or Secrets of Instant Sainthood. When God wants to make a giant oak, he takes a hundred years, but when he wants to make a mushroom, he does it overnight. Great souls are grown through struggles and storms and seasons of suffering. Be patient with the process. James advised, "Don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed." (James 1:4, Msg)

Don't get discouraged. When Habakkuk became depressed because he didn't think God was acting quickly enough, God had this to say: "These things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!" (Habakkuk 2:3, LB)

Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be. Years ago people wore a popular button with the letters PBPGINFWMY. It stood for "Please Be Patient, God Is Not Finished With Me Yet." God isn't finished with you, either, so keep moving forward. Even the snail reached the ark by persevering!

In what area of your spiritual growth do you need to be more patient and persistent?

[09/21/20]   OUR DAILY BREAD: The Lure Of A Message

You’re sitting in a darkened theater enjoying a concert, a play, or a film when suddenly a smartphone screen lights up as a person reads an incoming text and perhaps takes time to reply. In his book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, Nicholas Carr says that in our connected world, “The sense that there might be a message out there for us” is increasingly difficult to resist.

Samuel was a young boy when he heard a voice call his name and thought it was Eli, the priest in the tabernacle where he served the Lord (1 Sam. 3:1-7). When Eli realized that God was calling Samuel, he told the boy how to respond. When God called his name a fourth time, “Samuel answered, ‘Speak, for Your servant hears’” (v.10). This attentiveness to God’s voice became the pattern of Samuel’s life as “the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord” (v.21).

Are we listening to God’s voice in our lives today? Are we more drawn by the vibration of a smartphone than the still, small voice of the Lord through His Word and His Spirit?

May we, like Samuel, learn to discern God’s voice and say, “Speak, Lord. I’m listening.”

May we listen, Lord, to You
As You speak to us today
Through Your Spirit and Your Word—
Help us follow and obey. —Sper

Don’t let the noise of the world keep you from hearing the voice of the Lord.

[09/18/20]   Through the Tears
-Oluwatunbi Akindayomi

“Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.” Psalm 71:20

A young lady gathered the necessary ingredients from the refrigerator and stood at the kitchen counter preparing to cook her favorite dish. The key ingredient for the recipe was onion, which she did not like preparing. As she began cutting the onion, tears began to stream down her face as a result of the onion. As the tears continued to flow, she never ceased making the onion simply because she knew the onion was necessary for the dish to be what she wanted it to be. When the meal was complete, she tasted it and was thoroughly pleased with the final product. To get to the final product, she desired, not stopped by tears.

Life is full of ups and downs, joy and sorrow, trials and tribulations. Some situations we face in life are simply not enjoyable, and we experience pain. Classes not going well, bank account a bit shaky, trouble on the job, trouble at home, and other things going on that are just undesirable. As a result, the tears are (have been) flowing. God never promised we would never have trouble, He does promise that the end shall be greater than the beginning and He will be with us through the tears. In the midst of flowing tears, we must prepare for the breakthrough by continuing to walk in His Word and in His promises. Some only need to be reminded that breakthrough is on the way and God is still there.

[09/16/20]   Our Daily Bread:
Feeling Forsaken By Dennis Fisher
Read: Psalm 22:1-21

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

In his book The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis records an imaginary conversation between a senior devil and a junior devil as they discuss how to properly tempt a Christian. The two devils desired to destroy the believer’s faith in God. “Be not deceived,” the senior devil says to the junior. “Our cause is never more in jeopardy than when a human . . . looks round upon a universe in which every trace of [God] seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.”

The Bible gives us many examples of people who acted with faith despite their feelings of abandonment. Abram felt that God’s promise of an heir had gone unheeded (Gen. 15:2-3). The psalmist felt ignored in his trouble (Ps. 10:1). Job’s troubles were so great that he thought God might even kill him (Job 13:15). And Jesus from the cross cried out: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46). Yet in each instance, God was shown to be faithful (Gen. 21:1-7; Ps. 10:16-18; Job 38:1–42:17; Matt. 28:9-20).

Although Satan may try to tempt you to think you are forsaken, God is always near. He never forsakes His own. “God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you’ ” (Heb. 13:5). We may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid” (v. 6).

Lord, although clouds and darkness sometimes shroud us, we know that You are close by our side. Thank You.

God is always near in spite of our fears.

[09/14/20]   Undeserved
I am sinful, yet God calls me righteous. Is there anything I can do to thank him?

Read
One day a Pharisee asked Jesus to come to his house to eat. “A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, ‘If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is — that she is a sinner’ ” (Luke 7:37 – 39). The incredible thing is that Jesus did know what kind of woman she was. But that didn’t stop him from loving her.

Think
Like the woman, we all stand before Jesus with a spiritual rap sheet that is miles long. At this very moment, he sees every area of our lives that needs refining. Yet despite our sin, he loves us anyway. Dearly. That doesn’t make sense. But God’s love doesn’t make sense. We can’t figure it out.

Live
Let grace amaze you. Ponder it. Dwell on it. Feel the intensity of God’s love behind it. The woman had it right. She was well aware of her sinful past — she had lived it. And when she found the Savior who knew her completely and still offered acceptance and forgiveness, she could do nothing else but fall on her knees and pour out her praise on him.

When your messiness runs into Jesus’ perfection and you find him there, loving you, be like the woman with the alabaster jar. Just love him. Pour out your praise; drench him in worship. Stand in awe of the One who gave it all. He is worthy of every ounce of your praise.

Taken from The Great Rescue Bible

[09/11/20]   "When we have prayed, God opens the doors of opportunity, sends divine help, casts mountains into the sea, and floods our hearts with delight.

Until we have prayed, we are left to shadowbox ourselves to exhaustion. A prayerful life is a directed life. A prayerless Christian is crippled, deaf, and blind. Prayer is the main event. Miracles and victories are the fruit of prayer.

The great men and women of the Bible lacked much of what is required today for success. Most of them gained little by way of education. None of them ever attended a leadership seminar or strategic planning summit. Few of them possessed any political influence. Widespread popularity came only to a few Old Testament kings. Unfettered by degrees and methodologies, they turned their world upside down. They called upon the Lord. They prayed day and night. They asked God for the impossible. God answered with the incredible.

Every one of us can make the world a better place today. We can do it by praying. Prayer is more effective than any human endeavor.

Have you prayed today? Have you humbled yourself before God? Have you asked Him to do something great?"
