Listening To God Speak

Listening To God Speak

Reading Time: 2 minutes

James didn’t like how his brothers treated him. They always teased him about his love for reading and studying. They called him names like “effico”, “bookworm” and more. He wished he could just tell them what was on his mind. They weren’t that perfect too. He knew their flaws too and what they did in secret. What would God speak to him?

At church, he learnt about forgiveness. The Sunday school teacher used the story of Joseph to explain how to forgive.

That was going to be hard for James. So, he approached the teacher and told him about what he was facing at home. The teacher explained the reason why he had to forgive his brothers just like Joseph did.

By the time they were through, James learnt why he had to forgive and how to do so. It was a relief to him. He wasn’t going to continue in unforgiveness towards his brothers.

When you speak to other believers about an issue, you get more knowledge. They help you to understand what you are feeling, why it is wrong or right, and what to do about it. When the believer is older than you, you get to hear about their or other people’s experiences on issues like yours.

So, find a believer like yourself and share your fears or issues with them.

God bless you as you do so. Amen.

Prayer:
Dear God, help me find true believers that can point me towards the right path with issues I am facing or will face, in Jesus name. Amen

Action plan:
Locate an elderly Christian believer and ask them to be your mentor.

Declaration:
My children are open-minded. They seek advice from fellow believers. They do not keep the wrong associations.

Declaration (children):
The Lord speaks to me through his word. My ears are opened to God’s word.

Making The Right Decisions In The New Year

Making The Right Decisions In The New Year

Reading Time: < 1 minute

For a while now, we have been talking about right decisions. Hope you have been following closely. The reason we are dwelling on this topic is because the way you begin the year matters a lot.

It’s noteworthy to point out that it’s four days into the year already, so much has happened in just three days. I hope you aren’t planning to flow with the tides?

What decisions have you made for the year? Or do you plan to live every day as it comes?

If you want a fruitful year, it’s not too late to set your goals for 2022.

Here are a few things you should consider:

1. Wake up early every day to say a word of Prayer before setting out for school;

It is wrong for you to leave your house without first communicating with your maker.

2. Make sure to read your Bible every day;

Do you remember the Sunday school song ‘read your bible and pray every day if you want to grow’?

3. Be committed to showing love to everyone around:

God made everyone, so show love to everyone.

4. Respect your parents and everyone else:

Do you remember what the scriptures say about showing respect to your parents?

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.Ephesians  6:1

5. Do your best at everything:

Do not live a life of mediocrity. Go for the best.

With these few things, you are set for an amazing year already.

God bless you as you do.

Prayer:
Lord, help me to make the right decisions this new year.

Action point:
Talk to your parents or guardians. Let them help you follow through with your decisions.

Declaration:
I make the right decisions this year in Jesus name, Amen.

At church, he learnt about forgiveness. The Sunday school teacher used the story of Joseph to explain how to forgive.

That was going to be hard for Bayo. So, he approached the teacher and told him about what he was facing at home. The teacher explained the reason why he had to forgive his brothers just like Joseph did.

My Children Know How To Worship God

My Children Know How To Worship God

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There is a very popular verse that talks about how to worship God. This is probably one of the most common verses in the scriptures. I am sure you must have heard it quoted by your Sunday school teacher from time to time.

What verse am I talking about?

It’s the last verse in the book of psalms.

Psalms 150:6 (KJV) Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

“Praise the Lord” is one of the most used sentences in Christianity. Used both by those who know the meaning and those who don’t.
It is used every service day in churches, every other time during family devotion, and as often as one can remember.

We sometimes get so familiar that it no more makes meaning to us. Just like we can get familiar with our parents and teachers and miss out on what God has packaged inside them for our profiting.

One of the meanings of the word praise is to “worship”.
So the psalmist is telling us to worship God.

Psalms 150:6 (TPT) Let everyone everywhere join in the crescendo of ecstatic praise to Yahweh! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

I love that!

The crescendo of ecstatic praise!

Children, as long as you have breath, you are expected to worship God.
Your duty is to reverence him and pay homage to him.
Do not join the group of those who complain, murmur, and grumble, rather, give God quality worship.

 Do you know God destroyed an entire generation because they murmured?

1 Cor 10:10 (ASV)Neither murmur ye, as some of them murmured, and perished by the destroyer

Declaration:
My children are worship beings. They spend time worshiping the father. Amen

Prayer:
Lord, teach my children the mystery behind worship. Let their worship be always acceptable before you.

Action plan:
Take out time to worship God today.
