The Busy Mind

 

 

 

The saying  “an idle hand is the devil’s workshop” has lucratively found its way into day-to-day banter, absconding the confinement of some classed axiom. A toddler always is in the habit of playing with stuffs or put anything in her mouth, heavens know what has went down the throat of many, myself inclusive, that’s just what children are. “Keep out of the reach of children” sentence won’t go into extinct as far as we have children and we desire their proper growth, since they can’t discern good from evil.

Why do parents get toys for their children? Why are their amusement parks? I believe it’s for the young child to have fun and preclude a boring life, as children loves excitements. I’m not quite certain if babies have lots going on in their mind but I see they have lots in their very hands. Take away that toy and you have a crying baby.

I won’t stand to look at a child having her own share of fun, playing with everything on the table, perhaps I could only have a high regard for her beauty and simplicity as I go my way, but I will get a chair seeing an adult doing such, for something is wrong.

Why have I been dwelling on babies?,  just want to state a clear difference of what is expected of babies and adults, “To whom much is given, much is expected”. Whether loved or hated, responsibility awaits everyone, even that little child growing, she is going to be an adult sooner. T. Harv Eker said “The only way to change your outer world is to change your inner world”. This is a true principle. If we take time to think more than we act, we will produce results far effective than imagined, it all starts from the inside.

Parents will have to think and act for their little kids, with time they think for her while the kid act herself, and then a day will come when this child fully grown must think and act for herself. Thinking can simply means just having a second thought, not necessarily taking a whole month to think of what to do in a day, but rather, making sure that everything you do is not as a result of reflex or nature, but coming down from your mind. In some cases, to think through, you will need days or a month, but what matters is you thinking through, then act, but considering the time factor. Or what is the essence of charming a snake if you let it bite you first?

You are no more a baby that wants to play around and getting excited all day long, jumping all around, eat anytime, do anything and cry, there are scores of things to think about, because there are many things to do. When I was younger, I often anticipate the future, and see it as a high tower far beyond my reach. But now I see that the future is just a second away.

As ladies and gentlemen who desire to live in peace and harmony, you’ve got to put that mind to work, there are treasures in there, it’s just a thought away. We have regretted what we say and wish we gave it a second thought and things wouldn’t have turned this bad, and other times we wished to have settled down a bit longer avoiding the pot of soup we are already in.

You may not  own a company, but if you learn how to use your mind, thinking carefully, thus acting correctly, you will make a good CEO, for anyone who learns to control and manage  his action can control and manage anything. Don’t be a baby, be an adult.

The Possibility of a Changed World (II) by Oyewo Seun Lenitas

‘Utopian’ is the least word we could describe the baby world the Almighty birthed from the womb of his hands. Everything was perfectly fitted.

The winds, the sun, the moon, the clouds etc. They all harmonized to give credit to the architectural wits of the Most high. Not long thereafter we see degeneration littering everywhere. Anarchy blossomed blossoms. Reeking, the buzzards made party as the once perfect creation made a stench to its creator.

The hyenas growled unrestrained as they claim domineering grip over what was ours. The vampire in them rising to escalating proportions. Without employing forensic experts, we could see in ‘bold, italics and capslocking ‘, the fingerprints of the devil on all of Gods’s handwork.

This fundamental flaw we trace to the first man opening his mind to the reins of the Devil. Cuddled by lies and caressed by deceit, our first parents bought into the highfalutin bargain the meticulous liar sold them and we got here. This terrestrial ball as it stands today is just the prototype of what one old prophet, the son of Amoz, wrote concerning Israel of his days, ‘from the sole of your foot to the top of your head, there is no soundness’ Isa 1:6.

It is obvious and even perceptible to he that is bereft of sight that in all parastatals of affairs in this world there is no soundness. A fearful looking of doom we could rightly portend unless an emergency exit is given. Make the head right and the whole body would be.

The struggle to put back the world into shape wouldn’t be achieved by taking for example a tour to the animal kingdom, holding a heart to heart talk with them and reaching a compromise. We can’t belittle ourselves in telling the mosquitoes to stop biting mankind and relieving us of the malaria burden ready to vanquish Africa.

Neither shall we get an emissary who can mediate between us and the bacteria and viral worlds to placate them to stop exaggerating our morbidity and mortality rates. Even if our techs got such high, the handwriting on the wall is clear; a deadlock is inevitable. Even with the change of tactics, taking turn to coerce them into doing our bidding shall fail us too.

For how many Dentists shall we recruit to take off the biting teeth of these whirring creatures? Or how many obstetricians shall we place on jumbo pays to create infertility into these microscopic creatures so they can can’t proliferate? Well, due to paucity of jobs we could still find recruits of such but we can’t ..we shall’nt…we won’t belittle ourselves.

We must make the head( Man) right and the whole body of creation would follow suit. We must restore him to his unfallen state and that only through salvation. The atoning power of the blood we must show to the vilest of offenders. By this we would without secrecy live a life of harmony and unity. Of course we can start from somewhere.

We need not wait till the angel writing names in the book of life pens down the 7billion inhabitants. Let everyone with the appellation,’ Christian’ not just fanfaronade but see it a meek responsibility. Shine that light where you are. Salt that salt wherever you turn to. Achieving a heaven on earth would be a reality. It would get to a point that God would  only bath this ball on fire after so much restraints. Yes we can do it by His Grace.

The Possibility of a Changed World, a moment with Miss Ayilara, Mr. Olaleye, Mr. Ogundare and Miss Adisa.

If we can only live a simple and plain live as God created us to be, the world becomes better…and God in the centre of it all —–Ayilara Itunuoluwa

Making yourself a better person makes the world, make an example in yourself for the world to follow —-Olaleye James Olugbenga 

If a man wanna change his world, the change starts from himself, he should be ready not to give in, succumb and get tired of changing  —-Ogundare Ebenezer.

Love God and love your neighbour sacrificially, with the whole of your heart –Adisa Gbemisola

With what these people have said, I believe a change world is viable, perhaps  you don’t know if the world needs a change anyway, it’s good to state some things that are giving humanity hard time, and these will give you reasons to yearn for a changed world. 

  • Unemployment 
  • Inadequate health care
  • Bribery and corruption
  • Bad leadership
  • Moral decadence
  • Family problems
  • Threats
  • Poverty
  • Economic breakdown and Food scarcity
  • Educational problems
  • Broken homes, broken heart, broken relationships
  • Untimely death

All these things listed can’t be totally eradicated, that we must know, but the bottom line is, these things are eating deeper into the well-being of humanity like cancer and we have the power to correct it and stop all these evil from influencing us further, the standard welfare of the world is depreciating by the day, decades back, the world was fairer than this, morals were uprightly carried out, poverty wasn’t in so much abundance but now it’s getting worse, what’s the hope of the nation decades to come?

Taking Nigeria as a case study, an average Nigerian knows the state of affairs in the country, majority is in the attitude of pointing finger at the government, in extreme cases, people can blame their flat tyre on government. Meanwhile, everyone is involved in the state that we are in, the government is busy with their own thing , and the citizens are also doing theirs. If the only problem we have in Nigeria is government challenges  then we will have lesser problem to tackle. The government have a way of affecting individuals, that can’t be overruled, since there are laws and bodies that sees to how things goes, e.g education, public holidays, civil service and the likes, but then, we all have to choose what will influence us, you can choose to be influenced by the government and you can choose not to, you were not born inside the government house, you were born into the world, so, a responsibility awaits you to live a fulfilled life irrespective of the circumstances around you. 

Miss Ayilara was of the opinion that we only need to live simple lives.  She also cite an example in our discussion “Imagine if someone offends us and we just “simply” let it go… That will save us more time to make this World a better Place”. Most of the things we now fix, we could have avoided them in the first place, there is this saying “better safe than sorry “. Are you the kind that picks offence with anything?, you can start overlooking them, it doesn’t mean you’re weak, it only shows you’re strong.  Living simple lives is not synonymous to living carelessly but rather living with the mind that you will account for everything you do and you will reap whatever you sow. Jim Rohn said “You will reap much more what you sow “, and that’s the truth, if you live simple and make life easy for others, life will be much easier for you.

Mr. Olaleye talked about becoming better, the other time I referred to everyone contributing to the state of affairs in the world either positively or negativity, it’s like talking about a population, a population comprise each individual, so for a better world, we’ve got to have better people, your refusal to change is tantamount to refusing a better world, things might be good for you now but think about the future, the coming generation. Never think about other people not changing, if you decide to change and become better  it’s the beginning of a better world and your change is potent enough to influence other lives. 

Pastor E.A. Adeboye accepted the change that Jesus offered and with his changed life, many people are being changed everyday through his ministrations, books and his life, so your own change might be what is going to transform the world. Nelson Mandela’s work in history can’t be forgotten, such heart of service is what everyone must develop. Are you concerned about the welfare of this country? Then be changed. Don’t wait till you become a public figure before you influence your world positively, in that corner you are, affect lives positively and your reward is at the door. 

Then he also talked about making an example of yourself, everyone can talk about being good, being kind, and so on, but if you don’t take it upon yourself to make yourself a replica of the good things you say or desire, nothing is going to change. Make yourself a good example. 

Mr. Ogundare talked about not getting tired of changing. One thing that is certain is, good doesn’t arouse itself, it’s like having a field intended for farming, if the farmer plants his crops and then go to bed expecting harvest in the next season, he will go to the farm and return with a basket of weeds. As individuals, there is a great war between good and evil as said by Jim Rohn, which is true. Every good thing you do has it’s reward, never compromise, never get tired of changing, we will have a better world when we don’t get tired of desiring and working it out. The Holy Scriptures also says “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Miss Adisa mentioned the subject of love. Some people are not affected by the situation of the world, but it will take love in the heart of any man to crave for a better world ,so we all can live in ease, because one thing is certain, life is a globe that revolves round it’s orbit, if you are nonchalant today and unconcerned about the dying world, you don’t know what can happen tomorrow, the ball can roll to your side, live your life and help others in living good lives as you are opportune, you can also create opportunity to do that. Live to love. Loving God is simply loving godliness, a holy life, if you are living uprightly, you will not hurt your fellow human . Someone can be like, “I’m not working, I don’t have money to help others, I don’t know what to do to help “, the solution to the world is not more money, it’s not more free health care but more people with positive life. So, live a positive life. 

Thanks to all the contributors. Your effort and contribution is appreciated, as little as it may seem to you, it’s what we all need at this time and it’s my desire that we will indeed have a great host of ladies and gentlemen. What’s your opinion about a changed world?, visit our Twitter account and follow and tweet with the hashtag #findingthelostlove, your opinions will be appreciated. Thanks. 

Opt for Resolutions rather than New Year Resolution

 

Seconds after seconds, minutes upon minutes, until I ended up expending about thirty-one million, six hundred and twenty-two thousand and four hundred seconds, oh my, is this real?. If it were money, am already a millionaire. Meanwhile, time itself is money. The sensation that new year incorporate overwhelms majority, good wishes and glee flows around every corner, and every individual exult with their loved ones, since seeing a new year is a wonderful thing, knowing that many have passed away with the old year.
A new day is as important as a new year. We didn’t cross any bridge before entering the new year, neither did we jump above a sea with friends and family. A new year is as normal as a new day, it is like a sequel of a novel, one after the other, tomorrow is a continuation of today. The same rain that fell in the previous years won’t change its course this coming year, twenty-four hours will not dwindle as the year goes by.
Many things we write as touching new year resolution can be very cute, as we are in a state of ecstasy , to quickly put down those new lists of testaments and rules. It can also be exciting since that’s what most people always do as new year approaches, not knowing that years actually starts with second and seconds, and so forth.
New year resolutions can be cumbersome at times that we only carry the memory of the new goals in our head instead of the heart. You really don’t have to wait for new year before you resolve to be a better person. Everyday counts, days will soon turn weeks, weeks to months and months into a year.
New year resolution is good if you make a singular decision to daily resolve to become a better person. Just a singular decision, then you can put down every aspects of your life that you want to improve on, or the projects you want to execute. When you opt for daily resolution, rather than yearly resolution, you become productive and you will be happy to discover how your life turns out to be. Only make new year resolution once you’re ready to break it down to a daily commitment.

New year resolution can be very bulky that you just see that little or nothing is achieved at the end of the year.
It could be a very busy year for you, always screw it in that busy schedule no matter what. Jim Rohn in one of his seminar said “Nothing will change unless you’re changed”. Be grateful for this new year but if you continue in your old way, there is nothing new in the year, but it’s a new year indeed when you resolve to have a new you.
Wish you a wonderful 2017

The Prince of Peace and the reason for the season

THE PRINCE OF PEACE

If there be peace in the world, how fortunate the human race would be. No need to pretend that there is war in the world. World War I and II  made a mark in history. There is still war. War is not all about uproar and wailing, bloodshed, soldiers in armour and fear all around. War is simply anything that fights peace.  One of the things I personally detest is lacking peace. As much as I like being alone, if there is no peace, I will be disturbed,  until I do the right thing or get an understanding. At times I end up sleeping, just to relax over it, but what happens when I wake up? The war continue from where it stopped.

 War, as you know it fights peace, it doesn’t really count if it’s little or not. One of the vital things man can ever enjoy is peace. It’s a pity money can’t buy peace, oops, no one sells it anyway. It’s a state of mind that carries other advantages . it’s already an advantage itself. Since war isn’t a thing of joy. The advantage it carries include productivity, you can be more productive when your peace is not altered. Creativity, creativity comes from the mind, once the mind is at it’s best state you tend to do more and think better. Boldness, you can stand to do whatever you want to do anytime you choose to do it without worry. And also boldness in entering God’s presence.

Peace even make you heathy. Fear, sin, guilt, misunderstanding etc, can alter ones peace. Everyone has his own worry. But why worry when the Prince of Peace is here. His reign is peaceful, you can be careless in His care, that is, you can trust Him over anything. He even said “my peace I give to you, not as the world gives”. So the world can give peace? But a temporal one . Jesus’  is the everlasting Prince of Peace . His peace is for  you and I .He is the Prince of peace. So many things will fight our peace. Things won’t be always smooth and easy. That’s why Jesus came in other to grant us peace as we go through the journey of life. it’s not that troubles will totally disappear but rather He will give the grace to handle It without fear.

The reason for the season | By Akinfenwa Daniel Tolulope

: The feeling that comes with the season of Christmas is so potent that it reflects the peaceful and humble nature of the being been celebrated and whose value to the human race cannot be overemphasized, but the tidbits of this great celebration should as well not be thrown to the wind for in them comes the strength and hope that awaits the human race.

Our saviour so important in personality was born by an individual who has little or no value to the society, so rich in power and wealth chose to be born in a manger, so magnificent in glory chose to be announced by shepherds, all of these done with the purpose of bridging the gap between man and our creator. However, we spend greater time making merry, which is as expected, than reflecting on the real reason for the season, the latter been the ultimate. Evading the scorching and unbearable effect of the heat  which is the evidence of the great sun that shines so bright in Summer season, the earth full of dry leaves, indicating the loss of lives of trees in the forest in the autumn season, the heavy rainfall that succeeds the sound of the awakening thunderstorms leaving the earth to swim in its misery in the spring season, Christ chose to come in a season so cold, yet comforting.

Christmas celebration falling at the last month of the year is no mistake at all for it gives us yet another opportunity to reflect on our actions in the previous hundreds of days preceding it, allowing us make resolution where necessary as we enter into a new year. Resolutions to love one another just as Christ first loved us, resolutions to give to one another just as Christ gave himself for us. 

It’s here again, yes Christmas is here again, a moment of celebration of Love. How pleasant will it be if alongside our celebration we take time to reflect on the reason for the season we so long took for granted, things so minute yet important, reflecting on the NUGGETS OF CHRISTMAS.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Here comes the end of A Trip to Israel

Thanks for reading the posts.

 

 

The Everlasting Father

 

THE EVERLASTING FATHER.

The might, existence and the grace of God is inexplicable. How about His immortality? Simply beyond human comprehension. He is going to last forever, and forever will be a father. A man is not just being called a Father if there be no children. No earthly father will last forever. Death awaits all. He begat all men, He is the father of all.

Jesus came to the world several years ago, He died, resurrected and lives forever . Memorial service can be held in remembrance of a deceased family member or friend, their birthdays can even be remembered yearly. Celebrating Christmas is not because He is dead and we are remembering His unfailing love, but rather, we are marking a great turn around in the history of man with the coming of this saviour. In other words, we are simply saying “Thank you Jesus for coming to this world, though you’ve been gone before I was made, but thank you because your grace is eternal, and will last for several generations to come, I’m happy am a part of this everlasting grace”.

If He is  not a father, He wouldn’t have come at all.

“Hey Sandra, what do I get for you this Christmas?

You  promised me a present last year too ” Sandra complained

” I’m sorry dear, that was the only year I didn’t buy you a present, I will get you two to make it up with you this time ”

Sandra ‘s dad promised Sandra a gift last Christmas, but he couldn’t keep to his word. God promised the coming of messiah decades before He came. He fulfilled His promise, and every moment this gift (Jesus), is ever available, Jesus is not rationed, He is the messiah and available for all. As you’re getting your presents this Christmas, ask God for an Everlasting Gift, and that’s Jesus. More of Him in you and I.

All Things are Possible | Powerful God

POWERFUL GOD

Power comes from the Latin word potere, which means “to be able.” But things with power are much more than able — they’re able to exert a lot of force. “The powers that be” are those who hold authority, and “the power behind the throne” refers to the people who exert influence without being formally in charge. Definition at Vocabulary.com. One way or the other, everyone have power, it only varies. I have the power to do whatever I want to do according to the level of strength I’ve got. Power is not limited to supernatural exhibition, power can control. The president of this country has authority over the country, he is in charge, that’s power. Parents have power over their children. The clergy man have power over his congregation, the shepherd has power over his sheep.

Some people are not powerful in themselves, but powerful because there is someone behind them, that’s the power behind the throne, and others are powerful in themselves. You fall into either of the group or both at a time if possible(superficial explanation) . No matter how powerful a man is, he is not powerful in himself because someone have the power to take away his breath. So every human is under “the power behind the throne” . I called the first explanation superficial because that’s what it is, it is only a false power when you think you are powerful on your own. Only God is powerful on His own.

God made everything, including that powerful man that’s causing chaos in the world. God can stop him, so his power knows limit. But only God’s power knows no limit. In physics, power is defined as the rate of doing work or  the amount of energy consumed per unit time. Power encompasses energy and time. Time in the sense of how fast, and energy in the sense of how much can be done. So putting it together, the question of how much one can  do within a given time is power. I can carry a bag of cement but I will spend ages carrying it and putting it down, but a grown man will carry it and deliver it like Flash. We both carried it but there was a difference in the energy and the time.

Christmas is few days away, you see, God is not a magician but a powerful God, what magician use is more or less like an illusion. Those are not real. Struggling with something since the year started? God is powerful, He will do it for you. The Jesus we are celebrating came to this world in a powerful manner, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, no one on earth could do that, not even the most powerful man on earth. The name of Jesus is Powerful God, none can be compared with Him, every other powers are not power, there is just one powerful God which is Jesus.

Is your situation that hopeless? C’mon, Jesus can do it, His name wrought wonders . As Christmas is coming, one can merry and forget his sorrows and depression, it won’t be long before you remember them again, but why not do it this way? Before and during Christmas, why not talk to Him in your heart, trust me He came to this world to conquer your battles, don’t forget this. I want to also enjoy Christmas by talking to Jesus

He is powerful, full of power. There is nothing He can not do, with Him, All Things Are Possible.

I Am Stranded | Counselor

COUNSELOR

Many  times in life, I usually know what to do or the direction to take, just to be sure, I could decide to ask someone if my decision is good or not. And other times, I do not even know what to do, then I table the matter to someone, then I get my way. Other times I don’t know what to do and no one knows what I can do or I believe no one will be able to give me wise counsel on this, then I go to God.

These are three different scenarios, God must be the center of every decision, even after I’m being told what to do, it’s still my choice to choose what to do. I must have been clouded with some emotions or other things that fights good judgement, so telling someone would help me a bit and then I decide what to do.

Even after asking God, it’s still my decision to go for it or not. Whether there is a Solomon very close to my room, or a David with a kind heart in my abode, God must be the reason for my actions, both the big ones and the minute ones. Why do couples visit marriage counselors? I think in my opinion, it’s not like the husband and the wife are both stranded or don’t know what to do, to a reasonable extent. But because the counselor will hit the nail on the head and won’t exercise sentiment or prejudice.

Decision making is one of the core things in our lives. I am responsible for the state of my life, and so are you. Even as we all go around, seeking counsels, visit pastor for counsel, talk to a friend and the likes. If my friends should mislead me, may be she didn’t mean to do that, but I’m being misled anyway, it’s not her fault, it’s my fault because this is my life not hers.

God doesn’t have someone He goes to, to seek counsel, what!!? He is wise on His own. Isaiah 40:14 says it all. If the God that never make mistake is my Lord, how fortunate I am. The messiah which is the Christ has a gift for us this season, He wants to direct you and I to the right way, and I can trust Him because He is all-wise.

Are you stranded? And you don’t know what to do. It’s not too late to seek the only wise counselor. Do you know you can know what to do and you don’t even know how to do it? Once you do it in the wrong way, you will get it all wrong. But Jesus can teach you what to do, how to do it and when to do it.

His name is Counselor. Nothing is attached to it, there are medical counselors, academic counselors, marriage counselors, the list goes on. A marriage counselor might not be able to give wise academic counsels . But He is the counselor, that is, He is not restricted to a certain angle, He can give counsels on anything. I have a lot to know before this year runs out, I must run to the counselor to celebrate this Christmas. I trust He won’t mislead me.

I won’t ask for fish and He will offer scorpion. Not even my daddy will do that, how much more the one who came to this world to give His life for me, what can be more precious than the life of a man? , then I  believe He can give me anything I need. He will lead me.

You may seem to know what to do, but lean not on your own understanding, your friend can be very wise, but acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.

Too Much | Wonderful

WONDERFUL

It’s nice to see another day, thank God for that. Started the series A Trip To Israel two days back, I’m glad we are in this journey together. Yesterday, we were able to know the significance of names, and of course the power that the name of Christ carries.

One of His names is Wonderful and I also wrote on the headline “Too Much”, He is too much and more than enough. It is awesome to say God is wonderful, how about knowing that He is not only wonderful, but His name is actually Wonderful. Meaning He is full of wonders. This Christmas season as Santa Claus comes around, kids gets gifts from Santa, when the kids open their packages, they discover different gifts. My gifts differ from yours. This Christ we are celebrating in this Christmas is full of different wonders. Not just a particular wonder, He can do what no man can do, just name it.

I actually called this series nuggets of Christmas. And we are looking at His names, which I called who He is. I am doing that so we can celebrate Christmas in a more unique way, celebrating with understanding,  eating those rice and chickens with understanding and thanksgiving. Such that, even without Christmas chicken, you are happy that you are celebrating it the right way, which is by focusing on Christ whom we are celebrating.

It’s not a sin if you don’t eat chicken on Christmas (*winks*). So don’t feel incomplete without it. Jesus is wonderful and His name is called Wonderful. You can enjoy and experience His wonders this season. What an amazing thing to point at certain miracles in your life that happened just in the season of Christmas. I myself don’t just want to merry in fun alone but merry much more in His wonders during this season.

A woman touched the hem of His garment and was made whole, what a wonder! You can touch Him too and pray over those issues, trust me, His garment is still full of wonders. Don’t let this Christmas pass without you demonstrating your faith to Him that you believe He is wonderful. Enter Christmas before Christmas comes and enjoy your best Christmas ever.

The best Christmas is not the Christmas with many gifts, tables of food, nice outfits and footwear, vacations and the likes, but the best Christmas is the Christmas where your focus is Christ. Ruminate upon His wonderful acts, take a trip to Israel and read His acts of wonders. Study Him and you won’t remain the same again. He still does wonders because His name is called wonderful. He is too much.

Join me again tomorrow.

That Wonderful Name | His Names

HIS NAMES

Merriam Webster dictionary defined name as a word or phrase that constitutes distinctive designation of a person or thing. Even if you actually fell from the sky, you still have a name, don’t you?. Parents are responsible in the act of naming their children. You possibly would not have opened your mouth to give yourself a name when you were born. Someone has  to give you a name.

Names are not just a routine, it’s important to have a name. What do I call you if you don’t have a name? Well I could call you anything, just like everyone else will do. Names are primarily for the purpose of identification and recognition. But then, names also have great significance. A man was once named Jabez, meaning sorrow, this man had to pray before the Lord could bless him, he must have seen  sorrow indeed.

These days we give ourselves names, nick name or pet name to be precise. Just make sure that your nick name is not such that carries an unpleasant meaning, and forbid anyone that calls you unpleasant names. You will hear names like spider, snake etc, what good will a spider do than sting. Your attitude can give you a name, someone who eats a lot might end up being called FFO(for food only). You sure don’t want to be busy with food alone, there is much to do.

As Christmas is approaching, don’t forget Jesus is the Christ we are celebrating. He has many names. His names are simply who He is. It’s not about just identifying Him. His names had been prophesied before He came at all, though He was in existence before the world was made. But He came as a man into the world. I listed His names in the last post. You have heard or seen those names before,(Isaiah 9:6). His Names are much more than that. Let’s just focus on the ones prophesied by Isaiah in the chapter nine of his book.

His names are a pointer to the things He came to the world to do, and what He is still doing now. There is no other name above His names, only His name can do all things and break all yoke. Wow! What manner of a name is that? It’s a wonderful name. Whosoever shall call on His name shall be saved. His name carries power and anointing, His name is distinct and special. You can’t just call His name in vain, it’s one of His commandments. (Exodus 20:7).

So, as we are marking and celebrating His birth this season, give honour to His name. You don’t have to call Him brother Jesus, He is even more than that, you can call Him that and still dishonour His name. Our Father who hath in heaven, hallow be Thy name. Honour Him and believe in His name.

He is the reason for the season. Let’s continue tomorrow as we start to  check out His names one after the other. Merry in this Christmas as you read, share with friends and do His word.

My name is Precious. Meaning something of high value. I’m Precious. And I believe I am. What’s your own name? Do you understand the meaning of your name? Do you believe in your name? Take any of your names and leave your comments. See you tomorrow.
