“One Never Knows Does One”!

Father, I pray that whoever is reading this
Your divine power and love be in their
Minds, hearts, and souls in Jesus’ Name.

According to the Gun Violence Archive 2022 (which has provided evidence-based research since 2013). The total number of gun violence deaths:

  • Homicides: 23,133
  • DGU: 10,527
  • Suicides: 12,606

More than forty-three million guns are estimated to have been purchased in 2020-2021.
During that period according to a Washington Post analysis of federal
data on gun background checks. Massive reports have been recorded and
ongoing. There are communities that were once considered a safe haven, but now have a questionable reputation.

The world is changing rapidly, but there’s a lot of uncertainty about what this means or how we should respond. In a time such as this, it’s important to remember that God is still in control and has a plan for us all. As Christians, we can rest assured that no matter what happens in the world around us, God will see us through it all and guide us safely to our heavenly home where He has prepared for us an eternal reward!

I’ve been thinking a lot about the proverb “one never knows does one” lately. It’s something that I often say to myself when making decisions and it can be applied to so many different scenarios in life, from choosing what to eat for dinner on a Sunday evening, to taking an opportunity at work.

1 Peter 5:8-11 -New International Version-(8) Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (9) Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of suffering. (10) And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast. (11) To him be the power forever and ever. Amen.

The Bible is filled with advice on how to live our lives well but sometimes it can be hard to apply these lessons to our own lives because we don’t know what challenges we will face tomorrow! We cannot know what will happen in life but we can be prepared for anything by being alert and having a sober mind so we can stay focused on what really matters in life: staying true to ourselves by resisting temptation when others may try to tempt us away from our faith (James 1:12). The Bible says that no matter what happens during this life there will always be hope through Jesus Christ because He gave His life so that we could live again one day instead of just ending at death like animals!

James 4:7 -New King James Version-(7) “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

The above verse is a great reminder that we are not alone in this world and that there is someone who cares about us and wants what’s best for us. It also reminds us that we should resist the devil at all costs, because if he gets a hold of you then it’s not just your life on earth that will be affected…it’ll affect your eternity as well!

This subject matter has abruptly taken me on a tail-spin, but only God kept me!
As I type these words I am reminded of an event that occurred as I was on the prayer line with my Home Base Church Family. We came together that day to lift up the daily requests of others needing prayers. While leading the prayers, I was inspired to pray for all surgeons worldwide.

Although this is not a prayer I would normally do, I obeyed our Father who art in heaven, without any question. Whatever my God Says I will do! Soon after I received a message that a dear one of mine was hospitalized after being attacked by three gunshots. I remembered fighting this battle on my knees, I contacted my prayer Warriors who
were in agreement we will slay and win in Jesus’ Name! Now, I see why the holy spirit led me to pray for Surgeons worldwide.

It’s a shame, but we live in an era where things can change so quickly. One day, we have peace, and the next, war. One day the economy is booming and the next it’s crashing down around us. Gun violence has taken away many lives and shattered the lives of their loved ones. We should continue to pray without ceasing! Pray for all and leave no one left behind. In God we trust.

Remember Satan is a liar !!

God’s Timing

“Father, I Pray whoever is reading this,
That your divine power and love
be fill in their minds hearts and souls
In Jesus’ Name”

What a true blessing in knowing we serve a living God!
How many times has He come through for us? His mercy and
divine grace run over with endless love for us. God is the evident
resource of all that exists. As the people of God, we must admit
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

God’s Love is the strength that is keeping us together.
In Spite of the turbulence we may endure God is
with us always. There is a reason and timing for these events.
In the book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter three clearly expresses
“For everything, there is a season and a time for every matter
under heaven.”

Are you going through trials and tribulations? You are not alone.
We are continuously witnessing current events globally that show the trials being cast upon us from various directions. God provides all the answers to perplexing questions.
Please ask yourself, when was the last time you were alone and had
a conversation with God? He knows what we will say
to Him, but he wants to hear from us? The Divine Power
being in the secret place reveals his everlasting love.

God never sleeps and is always available for His children.
I have felt this clearly during my many conversations with God over my lifetime.
The book of Hebrew, particularly Chapter 4, Verse 16 brought me reassurance in my decision to approach God in times of need. “Let us then with confidence draw near to
the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and
find grace to help in time of need (ESV).”

Jesus has prayed and is still praying for us! Interceding on our behalf without ceasing. Brothers and Sisters, prayerfully be encouraged that “this too shall pass”.

Remember, Satan is a liar!!

All The Time, God is Good!

Father, I lift those up to you on high who may be reading this. May their minds, bodies and souls be fully surrendered unto you in Jesus name.

First and foremost, All Glory Be to God! The countless blessings continue to rise bountifully without limitations. Good and upright is the Lord (Psalm 25:8)

Sometimes our days can be faced with preparations of the “Perhaps”? Other times, we are desperate to structure as much of our lives as possible. We may not understand all, but God is bigger than any storms that you may be going through. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Yes! His mercies never come to an end! The reassurance of knowing the Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble and He knows those who trust in Him (Nahum 1:7). “In God We Trust” from beginning and forevermore. In the beginning, God’s goodness prevails as he created Heavens and Earth (Genesis 1:1).

God never stops being good to us! In spite of rocky roads we may come across, God’s love is evident. “For He so loved the world that he gave his one and only living son, That whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Many others have faced similar problems to what you are currently facing, but our God is on our side to deliver us out of the hand of Satan’s ongoing entrapments. When God is on our side, who can be against us? How can we be afraid? What can a mere man do to you or I?

Everything is worthless when compared with the greatest, priceless gift of all times, Christ Jesus!

We know how He loves and cares for us in this wilderness just as a father care for his children. He will guide, provide and direct our steps. Obedience is significant when God is positioning you where you need to be. As said in Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 3, “The revelation will await the appointed time; it speaks the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it, it will certainly come and not delay.”

There are many paths to explore in this life and our road to understanding God’s mission for us. The smallest path begins through a narrow gate, and many do not find it. This path leads to life! We are all helpless without God! We must trust Him and let Him lead us in the way we should go!

Ask yourself the following questions: How many times have I done things my way? How many times have I failed? When God is first and center in all that we do, He will provide the correct direction for our steps. The Lord makes his face shine upon you and be gracious to you.

In all circumstance, good or unpleasant, continually give thanks to God! How many times has he pulled you out of the proverbial quicksand? I know by His grace and mercies your testimony is endless and your tribulation is lessened.

The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy! Remain faithful to God to see the fruits of your faithfulness blossom without measure. Believe and receive all that is being produced for you with the name sealed with a supernatural blessing!

Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)! When all is made by the unseen the profound revelation will be evident. God is the author and finisher of our narratives. God wants all of you, not a partial fragment. Surrender completely and wholeheartedly! Thank God in advance! It is written in Job 11:13, “If you would direct your heart right and spread out your hand to him.”

Remember, Satan is a liar!

Satan Is A Liar!

Please know that prayers work!

“Lord, have mercy on us. We have put our hope in you. Protect us day by day, and save us in times of trouble. In Jesus’ name. Book of Isaiah 33:2.

As we embark on this journey of inspiration and countless blessings that God has bestowed on us and given without measure, we must keep in mind that “faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” -Dr Martin Luther King

There are many battlefields, but God is able! “Put on the full armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil.” Ephesians 6:11 Today we have the privilege to be in the land of the living when others may have taken their last breath.

This was almost my condition in November 2005 when I suffered a brain aneurysm that almost took my life. As the doctors told me to call my friends and family, I could tell they were indirectly telling me that I might not make it.

Our father who are in Heaven restored me to new life after my surgery, and I began to live more faithfully and abundantly. Whatever you may be going through or are about to go through, know with reassurance the love that God has for us all. No one is left behind! As children of God we will have struggles, and it is important that we conquer them all. It is essential that we pray without ceasing, meditate, be humble, and lift each other up! What can be done by God’s power is infallible!

Remember: Satan is a liar!

May God bless and keep you,

The lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you

The lord turn his face towards you and give you peace!
