Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12v2
“There is a race that I must run, there are victories to be won…..” are the lyrics of a song sung in many Churches in Southern Africa. Nothing could be further from a lie than that. There is no one who just lives for no reason. Everyone born of a woman has a specific purpose of existence. That automatically shuts out the assertion that says I have nothing to live for anymore.
Vana vaduku, imi, muri vaMwari, makavakunda, nokuti uyo, uri mamuri, mukuru kunaiye, uri munyika. 1Johane 4 vs 4
Pakurarama tinosangana nezvinhu zvizhinji, zvinofadza, zvinorwadza, zvinosekesa kana zvinosiririsa. Pane zvose izvi pane zvakare zvinogona kuitika nechikonzero chaizvozvo, asi pane nyaya yanhasi ndepekuti ndikubatsire kuziva zvinogona kukubatsira kuti nguva nenguva misi nemisi ugare wakafara zvisinei kuti wasangana nei.
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Job 14 vs 7
There are times in life when giving up seems like the best thing to do. It may be by reason of a promise long overdue, a situation that just looks to become only worse or something that common sense knows and says is impossible. There is always need however to stand up as a child of God and fight your way out because at the end of the tunnel there is a light, there is sunshine out of every sea and a valley after every mountain.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1v3
The Christian walk is not always an easy walk in the park. It is a journey full of all kinds of traps, tests, trials and temptations inasmuch as all the good things are also abundant in the life of any believer. It is to be noted that if you are a believer you are pleasing God on one side and displeasing the devil on the other side. The battle between the two of them is a fight for control of your life. Satan wants to control you as much as God wants to control you, so don’t expect such a battle to be all rosy for you or anyone.
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6 v 18
God does not enjoy having limited access to you. What God wants is to have communion with Him every time, on a line that is never busy or interrupted. Imagine your relationship with your biological father; you are close to him and he cares for you: to clothe you, to feed you and to get you a good education and enjoy life at the same time. The same is true, or even better, where God is concerned.
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18v1-7
