How to achieve your vision

" Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, "Because I bore him in pain." And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested ." 1 Chronicles 4:9-10  If you want to achieve your vision, then you are saying I want more opportunities to develop, and learn new skills. Learning becomes a critical part of the strategy to  improvement of life - a better life, career, pay, etc. So you challenge self, fail, and try new things - never give up! You take ownership, and see things through, embrace new processes and platforms, and most importantly, you show that you care for your future life. This is it that will lead you to a better life, business or greater fulfilment.  Laurence Muzembi

Are you ready to negotiate for success?

  For David to fight Goliath it wasn’t that easy, he had to negotiate through, first with his three brothers, some soldiers and " when the words which David spoke were heard, they reported them to Saul; and he sent for him. Then David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth." But David said to Saul, "Your servant used to keep his father's sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God." Moreover David s

Are you listening?

Hearing actively, or listening to God is key for the believers in their walk with him. The question is, are you a good listener? Sometimes we think that we are good listeners but God himself says we are all not good listeners.  He says to Ezekiel, "Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear; for they are a rebellious house," Ezekiel 12:2. So what we call listening is sometimes the opposite of what God expects us to be doing.  Listening, but not giving Him your full attention isn’t listening. Being a good listener means setting aside every distraction, and focusing fully, and not paying attention to what will be going on in your head while you’re listening. You’re definitely not listening if you’re just planning what you’re going to say next.  Telling God what you are going to be doing isn’t listening, and so is praying. There is a time for everything; a time to pray, a time to listen and

Learn to persevere…

If you want to change your life for the good, you will probably need to learn to persevere and prevail. Continue fighting until you obtain! Perseverance is persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success, and prevailing is to triumph or defeat an opponent especially in a long or difficult contest. Satan is a great example, he is your chief opposer, but he does not work alone - he works with situations, and evil workers also, who are just there to make you stumble. But 1 Peter 5:8-9 says, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith… " Zechariah saw in a vision, that no one should get through life’s challenges without help. The problem with spiritual warfare you will be frustrated if you want to do it alone. You can’t do anything for yourself, you can’t even stand up. Noticing Joshua’s dilemma, " the LORD said to Satan, "The LORD

The Spectacles of Love

We know God through love, loving one another.  "He who does not love does not know God, for God is love," 1 John 4:8. "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another," 1 John 4:11 Only love gives us the assurance we want, that we know him, we have no fear, but boldness on the day of judgment. But love  aught to have been perfected among us to see us through. He who claims he knows God must first wear his spectacles of love, “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him,” 1 John 4:16.  Jesus said it’s a new commandment, and you as a believer should realise how important it is to love, to love your brother also. One can’t see as they should without the spectacles of love. Who is a liar? One whose speech is cheap, measly and worthless; who says I love God, yet hates his brother or sister, that kind of love or faith is substandard, is below what is required. There is yet

You’re unique

  Think what a remarkable, none duplicatable and miraculous thing it is to be you! Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not ONE of them is like YOU! No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities. No one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know. The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you – NO ONE! No one before, no one to come. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE! Enjoy that uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that a

Strive for a crown!

The kingdom of God does not come with observation! "Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, "The kingdom of God does not come with observation,” Luke 17:20 You will not say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' We are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, and those who are seeing us think we’re playing games, although is, but the only difference is ours are real. It is the real show, and we’ve all been lured to playing a series of games from which the winner will emerge victorious - that we are indeed set free. But it’s just not enough to be successful in one game, you got to win all of them to win. The Pharisees thought they were the winners, and so they demanded the kingdom, and today some preachers may think it’s the end too. The Pharisees laid demands probably knowing that the new game Jesus was preaching about would be gruesome for them. So they thought, let the game now e
