Divine Destiny – Too Afraid

Following on from my last post “Too Untalented”, I am hoping that you have been encouraged and motivated to begin the process of finding out and using your talent to glorify God.Remember this series is about day to day hindrances to walking in Divine Destiny.“Divine Destiny – Too Afraid” http://www.robertamsterdam.com/prodi_scream.jpgI am very tempted to start by saying “fear is...

Divine Desitny – Too Untalented

In my church, the month of May is our month of “Divine Destiny” and I am posting a 4 Part series on the same topic, however, dealing with physical day to day limitations that inhibits our climb to achieving our God given destinies. Check this American Untalented video and see talent - not singing.... TOO UNTALENTED If any work/project is to be...

IOU (Obedience)

Obedience1 John 5:3, John 14:15, John 15:10, Genesis 35:1, 7The main aim of this teaching is to alert you to the fact that ‘obedience’ is not a choice. I know this may sound very untrue and hard to grasp, but it is my aim that, to the best of my knowledge, I would be able to make things clear.Concept...

IOU (INTEGRITY)

INTEGRITY Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. (OALD) Integrity is the basing of one's actions on an internally consistent framework of principles. Integrity is a personal choice. However, as humans and as Christians, our integrity has to be based on God’s laws. In simple terms, I will define integrity as “Godly principles that we choose to live by...

PEOPLE LOVER

PEOPLE LOVER I have always been around the circle of individuals that think 'people' are very crucial. If you pause to meditate on the statement above, you could conclude that I probably recently graduated from the animal kingdom to being human, because obviously we 'people' are crucial. Without people the world would not have been what it is today. The built environment,...

HOTN – NEWNESS

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Thank you for taking the time out to you all as I introduce to you the final part of the series HOTN. In this “Thanksgiving” series, we have talked about “The Heritage Of The Nation” as our possession, when we thank God for those things that He is yet to do. (HOTN). I wrote about Hospitality, Oracles, Teachings and...

HOTN – TEACHINGS

Quick question: What has God promised you? Do you know them? What has he revealed unto you, do you remember them? Consider how hard it could be to express thanksgiving for nothing or randomly. “I just want to thank you.” Even the person you are talking to would ask, for what? Communication is an integral part of any relationship, and God is constantly...

HOTN – ORACLES

ORACLES In talking about oracles, I am talking about the unchangeable Word of God. The Psalmist said (Psalm 138:2) "For You have magnified Your word above all Your name." and Isaiah reiterated the efficacy of this word, saying (Isaiah 55:11) – “it will not return void, without fulfilling the purpose for which it was sent”. Without messing about with your intellectual head,...

HOTN – HOSPITALITY

Thanking God for what He has done is an obligation (don’t you think?). If you do something for someone, courtesy demands that the person appreciates you. If they don’t, as humans, you know what you’ll be thinking - I will not do things for the person again. If we don’t thank God for what He has done for us,...

HOTN – Heritage Of The Nations

Hello to you all and welcome to this new series on Thanksgiving.. I pray that as you take this journey, God will gracefully endow you with a heart of gratitude. Doing God's will is our ultimate aim on earth, and brethren, this is God's will - Thanksgiving (1 Thessalonians 5 vs. 18) HOSPITALITY Hospitality should not be a ‘last card’ option, but...

Divine Wisdom (Head Service – Partiality)

Head Service (Partiality) Simply put 'Head Service 'is running the show carnally and can be defined as “When the agenda of man becomes the benchmark for a Godly cause” 'Head Service' in biblical terms means partiality. As Eye Service is eating away the goodies of being a Christian, Head Service is the catalyst that encourages this obnoxious act. Wanting to give bribe is not...

Divine Wisdom (Hypocrisy)

James 3 vs. 17The Wisdom from above is without partiality and hypocrisy.The dangers of ‘head service’ and ‘eye service’Don’t get lost yet, eye service, you probably have heard of but head service?…hmmm, probably not.Eye service is in itself hypocrisy. Pretending to be what you are not, especially whilst performing a form of service. Be it at work, in church,...

Divine Wisdom (Full of Mercy)

James 3: 17The wisdom from above is full of mercy/compassion.How many times have we as christians shown resentment and vengeance?But when you have the wisdom of God, you get with it an empowerment to show compassion.Your supernatural ability to resolve issues (divine wisdom) brings with it the innate responsibility of being moved to action (compassion).Jesus showed compassion all through...

Divine Wisdom (Willing to Yield)

The wisdom from above is... “Willing to yield”. James 3 vs. 17Some other translations use words like “reasonable”, easily entreated”, “submissive”, “and sensible”.At first encounter, I was confused to learn about divine wisdom that is submissive.How can the ultimate solution to any problem be submissive and submissive to what exactly?It is not imaginable that the divine wisdom we...

Divine Wisdom (Gentle)

Over the past few weeks, I have been posting about the attributes of divine wisdom as written in James 3 vs. 17.“The wisdom from above is... gentle...”Gentleness is not only packaged with wisdom, it is also a fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5 vs. 22). This tells us that as Spirit filled Christians, we have to be gentle.Being gentle...

DIVINE WISDOM (PEACEABLE)

James 3 vs. 17 “The wisdom from above is ….. Peaceable….”… or peace loving….” ……or peaceful...” Whenever we think about wisdom, one of the first things that come to mind is “resolution without conflict”, the ability to solve complex problems or make seemingly impossible decisions in a peaceful way. Peace follows on the trail of wisdom and it is not surprising because...

DIVINE WISDOM (PURE)

James 3 vs 17"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy."In the next few weeks, I will be blogging on divine wisdom. The core scriptural text is James 3 vs. 17.It tells of the characteristics or attributes of...

My Witness

If you have decided to give your life to Jesus, then say this prayer!!! "God I thank you for the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, I admit I'm a sinner, I repent of my sins. I believe in my heart I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord. I accept Him into my life and surrender all to him. Amen." If you said that prayer meaningfully, drop me an e-mail and I will get in touch with you.

PEEP

Happy Birthday to me.... Happy Birthday to me.... Happy birthday to me blogger.... Happy birthday to meeeeeee……. (DRUM ROLL)Yes... that's right. It was my birthday a few days ago, on Sunday to be precise. Such a lovely day that was.I’m very happy to be a year older (giving thanks to God for His faithfulness).How did I celebrate it?Well, I...

WHILE YOU WAIT

“….Now it came to pass in the process of time…” This is a phrase that is scattered around biblical texts, in different places for different purposes and under different circumstances.All around us believers are constantly being reminded of the awesomeness of their God with praise worthy glorifications such as “God is never late”… “God is not limited by time”…...

Have I just failed?

A few weeks ago I said and I quote: “I am not bothered about failing. I have been in this position before and from experience, extraordinary things always happen”. For the next 6 days, I did everything within my capability to make the extraordinary feat come to reality. Self motivation, mind exploration, body renovation, spiritual revelations....name it..... were all employed to help...

UNFAILING LOVE

Unfailing LoveAnd now these three remain.........faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love (1corinthians 13 vs. 13)The cosmos (universe seen as an ordered system) is a striking resemblance of the compatibility of different particles (if humans can be called) not by force, not by law, but in an entity called “LOVE”.It’s not surprising to see love...

MOTHER

A few months ago, I was in a position that I am again right now…. All I wanted to do was sit down, pull the keyboard closer and menacingly type my way through a tirade of thoughts about women.Not just any woman is set to be my focus of discussion, but rather women who have been there… women who...

WALK HOLY

In the forests of northern Europe and Asia lives little animal called the ERMINE, known for his snow-white fur in winter. He instinctively protects his white coat against anything that would soil it. Fur hunters take advantage of this unusual trait of the ermine. They don’t set a snare to catch him, but instead they find his home, which...

FICTIONAL TALE

A fictional tale that has existed in my life is something worth giving a mention not least because I’ve been paying attention to its occurrences.In years gone by I’ve come to observe that first impression does really count and that sometimes you might have to bend over backwards to erase an unwanted notion that someone has about you.For me...
