Commit Your Ways Into The Hands Of The Lord…

Hi pal. It’s been a while I shared my thoughts 🙂 I hope you are doing well?

About three weeks ago, I went to the bank to get some cash. As I approached the gate, I heard “praise and worship” going on behind the gate house. I wondered who could be doing that as I have NEVER seen or heard where such a thing took place in a bank or highbrow organisation before. That however excludes my place of work. We rely so much on God and it has really paid off.

As I stepped in and walked pass the gatehouse, I discovered that it was actually being done by the security officials of the bank. I felt really touched, not only because it was very uncommon, but because their praise and worship acknowledged one of my strongest beliefs….

Except God watches over a city,

the watchman waketh but in vain (Psa 127:1)

My interpretation of what they were doing was simply committing their ways into the ever reliable care and protection of the Lord. They were simply telling God that indeed, the protection of the bank was actually within God’s powers and not theirs.They knew very well that it will take robbers very little effort to render them “useless” in the security job that they were supposed to be doing. Like David, they thought it wise to confront the challenges, risks and dangers associated with their job with an attitude and mind set of….

If God be for you,

who can be against you? (Rom 8:31)

And just like Solomon, they asked God for help and wisdom (1 Kings 3) in the discharge of their duties. As God lives, JEHOVAH GOD who sees their needy hearts will sure live up to their expectations in Jesus name, and would also encourage (and continue to encourage) other people to rely and trust in Him.

Some people belief and trust so much on their abilities, judgments and the ways, thoughts, help and pronouncements of man. Well, different strokes for different folks. I used to, but now, I know better. As they say “experience is the best teacher.” For me, my morning is not complete without praying to God and asking Him to take FULL CONTROL of all my undertakings of the day, and those of my family. This prayer always soothes my nerves, assures me and really works like a GENERAL INSURANCE POLICY for me 🙂

Committing one’s ways into His hands is a sign of total submission to His all-knowing abilities, flawless decisions and unmatchable power. One is simply saying “LORD, I AM COUNTING ON YOU.” And I trust Him. At the end, you will have testimonies to share, as I have been doing on my blog, and will continue to do.

So, is it family or relationship issues, career issues, job change, relocation, choice of business/location, security, oppression from anyone?….Name it. GOD will turn them all into testimonies for you. Just commit all your always to God in prayer and see the outcome 🙂

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.(Isaiah 55:8)

Therefore brother/sister….

Cast thy burden upon the LORD,

and he shall sustain thee:

he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.(Psa 55:22)

The taste of the pudding is in the eating 🙂

Thanks for your time and GOD bless you….and me too 🙂

It’s Just A Mere Dream ?

Hi. I had a very good experience in church yesterday. Aside from the usual prayers, praise and worship, the sermon delivered by the guest Pastor talked about a very important topic – Dreams !

It is no news to me that God speaks through dreams. What really made it special to me was that it further made me to take my dreams very serious, whether it is good or bad. Now I cannot hear myself say its “just a mere dream.”

God has spoken to me many times through dreams, most of which eventually came to pass. Actually, they were just revelations by God requiring appropriate actions. I once had a nightmare concerning my son. We woke up, he went to school, and the dream played out like a movie script. My only saving grace was the fact God had already revealed it to me the previous night and I disturbed God with prayers. My son was guarded by the angels of God. Praise God !

I belief in dreams. For me, a dream is not “just a mere dream.” Some dreams are intended to tell you what God wants to do (Gen 41:32 ), reveal things to you (Jere 29:8-9), speak to prophets (Num 12:6), explain a mystery to you (Matt 1:20-21), reveal your coming promotion (Gen 28:12-15, 37:5), or warn you of an impending danger (Gen 20:3-7). There are so many other biblical instances of where God spoke through dreams.

In some cases, the devil and his “disciples” use dreams as a medium of attack. There are cases of one being fed in the dream and sickesss or death follows afterwards in the real world. There have been cases of sexual intercourse in the dream resulting into miscarriages, delayed marriages and sometimes death in the real world. There have been cases of one falling down and sustaining injuries, only for one to be involved in a ghastly motor accident eventually – all because they treated the dreams as “mere dreams.”

Dreams are supernatural, spiritual and scriptural. So, when next you have a dream, take it to God in prayer, especially if its a bad one. Better still, see someone who can interceed on your behalf. God must be brought into the picture – whether it’s a good one or a bad one. God has the ability to bring good dreams to pass and equally cancel bad dreams !

Please do non’t say “its just a mere dream!”

God bless us all.
