New English Translation Romans 4:18-21

Against hope Abraham believed in hope with the result that he became the father of many nations according to the pronouncement, “so will your descendants be.” Without being weak in faith, he considered his own body as dead (because he was about one hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God. He was fully convinced that what God promised he was also able to do.

The Bible talks about the faith of Abraham. In verse 18 above the Bible says, ‘in hope Abraham believed against hope… ‘ Faith is believing God even when all the circumstances tell you it’s now too late or it can never happen! You hold on to God and keep believing God even when it doesn’t make sense! Hold on to your faith, trust in Him even when it looks like it’s madness! Your faith will be rewarded! Shalom! Have a blessed day!

New King James Version 2 Chronicles 20:15

And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

The Bible says, ‘do not be afraid nor dismayed. .. for the battle is not yours but God’s.’ We face many battles and challenges in life but God tells us not to fear! Why should we not fear? Because the battle is not ours to fight, the battle belongs to God! Stand still and let Him fight the battle for you! Surrender all your battles to Him and you will be guaranteed of victory all the time! Shalom and blessed day!

4th May 2020

New King James Version Deuteronomy 20:3-4

And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’

God promised us long ago that when you face battles do not be afraid or be terrified because of your enemies. Sometimes the enemies surrounding you may look insurmountable but fear not because the Lord your God goes with you to fight for you and give you victory! God desires to fight our battles and give us the Victory but we need to allow Him to fight for you. Pray to God and cast your burdens to Him, surrender all your battles to Him and He will fight for you! Acknowledge Him and let Him fight for you today! Shalom and blessed day!

New King James Version 1 Samuel 17:45-47

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”

The Lord does not save with sword or spear but still the battle belongs to Him. David faced Goliath in the Name of the Lord of hosts and defeated him in the Name of the Lord! Commit the battle to God but also use His Name to fight your battles! There is power in the Name of Jesus Christ! May God grant you victory in every battle in the Name of Jesus Christ! Shalom and blessed day!

 

2nd May 2020

New King James Version Jeremiah 33:3

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

God is inviting us to call on Him, to pray to Him and He will answer! God still hears and answers prayer! Not only does He promise to answer but He goes further to say He will show us great and hidden things we know not! I encourage you to pray to God today in the Name of Jesus Christ And God will answer you and show you great and mighty things! Shalom and blessed day!

[NIV] Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God has got a wonderful plan for each one of us but you need to believe God and embrace His plan for your life! Things may not seem good at times but God’s plan for you stands! He loves you and has got a plan and a purpose for your life! God declares that, his plan is for good and not for disaster! He has got a plan for you to prosper ; to succeed ; to make it no matter the current circumstances! The situation around you may look like you have got no future but that is a lie! God has a plan to give you hope and a future! You have a future and it is bright!!
May God bless you and grant you a glorious day! Shalom!

 New International Version 1984 Psalm 27:13

I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

David says, I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! The NKJV says, I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. We are living in turbulent times, very uncertain times but keep believing that you will see the goodness of God in the land of the living. Choose faith over fear, doubt and unbelief. Let’s believe like David that we will still see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Shalom and blessed day!

 

29th April 2020

Amplified Bible, Classic Edition Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen! The world wants to see first and then believe but for us children of God it’s different. We believe first and then we see the results or manifestations of our faith. Faith is the evidence of things not seen. Faith perceives as real fact what is not yet revealed to the senses! Faith is real, it works and it produces results. Keep walking by faith! Shalom and blessed day!

 

28th April 2020

New King James Version 1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Glory to God, there is victory in Christ Jesus! He has overcome the world and he overcame satan and his demons! We just need to keep believing and we will walk in victory everyday! Jesus does not only give us victory, He is our Victory! Amen! Shalom!

27th April 2020

New King James Version John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

There are no two ways or many ways to heaven! There is only one Way and that Way is Jesus! Tell someone about Jesus today, bring him to the way! Shalom and blessed day!

26th April 2020

New King James Version Psalm 30:5,11

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,

Sometimes we go through dark nights when everything looks dark and gloom! At certain times there is no reason to hope and believe but thank God, the Bible says, weeping may endure the night but joy comes in the morning! I prophesy a new dawn of joy and gladness! May God arise and turn your mourning into dancing! May you experience gladness and laughter again!! Have a blessed day! Shalom

New English Translation Hebrews 11:1

People Commended for Their Faith Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.

Faith is believing God even before we see! We believe we have what we are hoping for before there is any material evidence! Keep believing God, faith works! Shalom and blessed day!

24th April 2020

New English Translation Romans 10:8-10

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we preach), because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation.

Salvation is by Grace through faith but it is important for one to believe the Word of God and then you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord! So you believe in your heart first then you speak or confess with your mouth what you believe in your heart! Glory to God, Jesus is my Lord and Savior! He died for you and me but rose from the dead! Shalom and blessed day!!

23rd April 2020

New Living Translation John 1:4-5

The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

The life of Jesus Christ in us is our light and that light shines on in darkness. Darkness has never and will never be able to overcome the light! No matter what is happening around you keep the faith you are an Overcomer. We have the Light and we are the light! We overcome darkness at all times! Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world!

22nd April 2020

New King James Version Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Our words are powerful, they can either bring you life or death! In times like these be careful how you use your tongue! Don’t just speak like everyone else, even like people who don’t know God! Use your tongue wisely. Speak life not death. Speak the word of God in your life and in your situation! I speak life to you and your family today! Shalom and blessed day!

21st April 2020

New English Translation Romans 8:28 A

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,

Remain steadfast in your faith no matter what you are going through! The Bible says all things ie both the good and the bad. All things work together for the good of us who love God, who are called according to his purpose. God will use that situation whether good or bad to work for you in the end! In whatever state you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ! God bless you! Shalom

20th April 2020

NKJV Psalm 34:10

The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

The Bible says, the young lions may lack and suffer hunger but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing! The young lions represent the rich and strong. Other versions say the rich and strong may lack and suffer hunger but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. World economies have been falling because of the virus and people are losing jobs but keep your eyes on the Lord. As we seek God, He will sustain and take care of us! Continue to seek Him, he will supply all your needs! Shalom and blessed day!

19th April 2020

GNT Jeremiah 6:16

Israel Rejects God’s Way The Lord said to his people, “Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths and where the best road is. Walk in it, and you will live in peace.” But they said, “No, we will not!”

God advises and offers His people the best way to follow but they refuse and say, ‘no we will not walk in it’! This is the tragedy of our time that people reject God’s way and they seek to walk in their own way! I pray that God will open your eyes to understand that God’s way is the best and to follow it! Don’t miss or reject God’s way for you! Shalom and blessed day!

18th April 2020

ESV Acts 4:10,12

let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Salvation is found only in the Name of Jesus Christ for there is no other name through which people would be saved. Put all your trust in that Name and don’t allow anyone to cheat or deceive you that there are many ways to get to heaven. Jesus the Son of God is the only way to heaven and salvation and forgiveness of sin is obtained only in or through his Name. Shalom and blessed day!

17th April 2020

NLT Colossians 2:6-7

Freedom from Rules and New Life in Christ And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

Continue to follow Christ and let your roots grow into him. Be built and established in Him. Many believers today have no roots and are easily tossed about by every wind but be rooted in Christ. Shalom and blessed day!

16th April 2020

NLT Colossians 2:8-10

Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

The Bible warns us to be careful that no one captures us with empty philosophy! We are living in times where people want preachers to tell them what they want to hear. However it is critical that you stay rooted in Christ and in His Word. Don’t be swayed by human wisdom and philosophy, base your faith in the Word of God! Shalom and blessed day!

15th April 2020

NLT Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.

Put your trust in the Lord! The Bible says, Cursed is the person who puts his trust in man(people)! But blessed is the man /woman who trusts in the Lord! People can change, people can let you down but God will never change! Let your trust be in the Lord and you will see the goodness of Jehovah in your life! Shalom and blessed day!

13th April 2020

NKJV Deuteronomy 30:19

I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;

God has given you and I the power of choice! Your choices do matter. Whatever choice you make, it can lead either to life or death, blessing or curse. May God help you to make the right choices! Shalom and blessed day!

 

12th April 2020

NKJV Matthew 22:36-38

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and your mind. Love God and love people! Make a place for God in your heart. Love him and obey his Word! Shalom and blessed day!

 

11th April 2020

NKJV Isaiah 49:14-16

God Will Remember Zion But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.

God will never forget or forsake his children. No matter what is happening, take courage God is with you. You are continually before his eyes! All is well! Emmanuel is with us! Shalom and blessed day!

 

10th April 2020

ESV Psalm 20:7

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

People trust in many different things! David says, some trust in chariots, some trust in horses for victory in battle but we trust in the Name of the Lord! Some people trust in sangomas, some in traditional muti and nowadays some trust in water from different places and some trust in oil but I want to challenge you to trust in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. His Name will never lose its power! Put your trust in the Name of Jesus Christ the Son of the living God and you will conquer and win every battle in life! Victory is guaranteed in that Name! Shalom and blessed day!

 

9th April 2020

NET Romans 4:18-21

Against hope Abraham believed in hope with the result that he became the father of many nations according to the pronouncement, “so will your descendants be.” Without being weak in faith, he considered his own body as dead (because he was about one hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God. He was fully convinced that what God promised he was also able to do.

The Bible talks about the faith of Abraham. In verse 18 above the Bible says, ‘in hope Abraham believed against hope… ‘ Faith is believing God even when all the circumstances tell you it’s now too late or it can never happen! You hold on to God and keep believing God even when it doesn’t make sense! Hold on to your faith, trust in Him even when it looks like it’s madness! Your faith will be rewarded! Shalom! Have a blessed day!

7th April 2020

NKJV Philippians 2:5-11

The Humbled and Exalted Christ Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

There is power in the Name of Jesus Christ. The Bible says, God has given him a name that is above all names. Learn to trust that Name, the Name of Jesus Christ! Practice just to call upon that Name in faith! There is salvation, healing, protection and victory in that Name! Prayer is answered in that Name and miracles happen in that Name! There is power in the Name of Jesus! Shalom and blessed day!

 

6th April 2020

NET Romans 8:28

All things work together for the good of us who love God, who are called according to his purpose. God will use that situation whether good or bad to work for you in the end! In whatever state you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ! God bless you! Shalom

 

5th April 2020

NKJV Hebrews 12:1-2

The Race of Faith Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Christianity is a race, a long race! It is actually a marathon where you must brace yourself for the long haul! We are in the race for a long time if Jesus tarries so there is need for endurance! Keep running the race looking unto Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith! Shalom and blessed day!

 

4th April 2020

NIV 1984 Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God’s word does not change. We live in a world where people no longer honor their word, people are not longer faithful. However God is still faithful and His Word does not change. His plan for you and I is still for good and not for evil. His plan is to give you hope and a future! Shalom and blessed day!

 

3rd April 2020

NKJV John 1:29

The Lamb of God The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

In this season of Easter we need to re-focus our eyes on Jesus the Lamb of God! When John saw Jesus he pointed at him saying, ‘look this is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world ‘! Whatever we do we need to point at Him and not at ourselves or someone else! Jesus is the Lamb of God, look to Him. Shalom and blessed day!

God promised that when He sees the blood He will pass over the houses of Israelites and not allow the destroyer to destroy them. The blood of Jesus is our covering today, put yourself and your family under the blood! Shalom and blessed day!

1st April 2020

NKJV John 19:30

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

When Jesus died on the cross, he shouted, ‘it is finished ‘! Believe God today that it is finished. Jesus paid it in full on the cross! It is finished! Shalom and blessed day!

31st March 2020

ESV Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

On the cross of calvary Jesus was separated from His Father and he cried out, My father, my father why have you forsaken me? Jesus was forsaken at that time, separated from God so we may enjoy the Presence of God forever! That’s why the Bible says, nothing will separate us from the love of God in Christ! Jesus suffered so we may enjoy the Presence and love of God for eternity! Nothing will separate you from His love. Shalom and blessed day!

30th March 2020

NKJV 1 Corinthians 11:24-25

and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

The season of Easter is a time to remember Jesus Christ for his death, burial and resurrection! Jesus is the reason for the season. His body was broken for you and me and his blood was she’d for us! His death brought us life! Let’s celebrate Jesus this Easter! Shalom and blessed day!

The Bible says in verse 5, we are kept, we are shielded by the power of God through faith.

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”

25th March 2020

NKJV Hebrews 11:5-6

By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

God is pleased with faith! When you come to God, come in faith and whatever else you do for God, do it in faith. Faith is trust, taking Him at his Word that whatever He says to you is true and He means it! Keep walking by faith it pleases God! Shalom and blessed day!

24th March 2020

KJV Mark 5:36

As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

The devil works with fear but God works with faith. When things happen in life, satan wants you to be afraid and panic. The moment you fear and panic then faith can’t work in your life. That is why Jesus says to Jairus, Don’t be afraid, Only believe! Today, don’t be afraid only believe!
God bless you and have a blessed day! Shalom

23rd March 2020

NKJV Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Jesus gave us power /authority to use His Name. That Name is vested with power over satan and all his devils, power over sickness and disease and power over every power of satan. Use the power in the Name of Jesus Christ to overcome satan and all his demons and his schemes! Walk in the power of the Name of Jesus Christ! Shalom and blessed day!

21st March 2020

“…let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Salvation is found only in the Name of Jesus Christ for there is no other name through which people would be saved. Put all your trust in that Name and don’t allow anyone to cheat or deceive you that there are many ways to get to heaven. Jesus the Son of God is the only way to heaven and salvation and forgiveness of sin is obtained only in or through his Name. Shalom and blessed day!

Whatever we do and wherever we go we are not on our own! We go in the Name of Jesus Christ! We don’t go in the name of our church or the name of our pastor or prophet!

God Our Father As for us, we have this large crowd of witnesses around us.

Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. He did not give up because of the cross! On the contrary, because of the joy that was waiting for him, he thought nothing of the disgrace of dying on the cross, and he is now seated at the right side of God’s throne.

Christianity is a race, a marathon! We must continue to run with patience, endurance and determination to finish the race!

Peter’s Confession When Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They answered, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “You are blessed, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but my Father in heaven!

Jesus asked his disciples who the people thought he was. They gave different answers like some say, Elijah, some say Jeremiah or one of the prophets but Jesus brought it to a personal level. He asked them but who do you say that I am? Who is Jesus to you? It’s easy to narrate what others say of him but you personally who do you say Jesus is? Shalom and blessed day!

God has a plan to give you hope and a future! You have a future and it is bright!!
