Pray to your Father in heaven

When you pray, especially yourself my friend, pray to your Father in heaven.

Remember that God is in heaven, He’s your Heavenly Father; He’s not a man, He does not see as man sees, but He looks at the heart, He weighs the spirit.

 So when you pray to him, you should not be like hypocrites who love to pray standing in the synagogues, on the street corners, screaming on top of their voices and making long prayers even on social media to be seen of men. No matter the effort, they get it wrong anyway. Don’t pray the way heathens do, those who practice necromancy, enchantment and divination, for they think they will be heard for their many words. If that’s what you do my friend, no wonder some prayers are ignored, and some efforts vain. 

"Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him," Matthew 6:8.

Your Father is in heaven, that’s His secret place, far far away. Remember also that,  "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." John 4:24.  True worshippers don’t pray loud, neither do they copy other religions, but they abide by or do follow His instructions only.

He told us how we should pray in-order to not pray amiss.

He sees/hears in secret, so, "when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly." Matthew 6:6.

Jesus said to the woman of Samaria, "the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him," John 4:23.

What that means is you only have to believe from where you’re, believe in your heart and pray from where you’re, there is no difference - for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him or who worship Him in spirit and truth.

God bless you,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why is finding God so difficult?

  God says, ‘Here I am’ My hands stretched all day long for you, but “... when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight," Isaiah 65:12. He said you’ve walked in a way that is not good, i.e. according to you own thoughts. That’s why I "was found by those who did not seek Me." ‘Here I am!‘ The good thing with God is he reveals himself to you, but sadly we choose not to see, seek, listen nor to find him. To “find God” is an expression that can mean different things to different people. For some, is getting religion, whatever religion that may be. For others, to “find God” means to “clean up one’s life,” usually with his help. In any case, to “find God” involves a change in someone’s attitude and behaviour. Biblically speaking, to find God means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is only through Jesus that anyone can come to God (John 14:6), and receiving Christ results in a

You are a chosen generation

Reverend Muzembi  " Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded " 1 Peter 2:6 KJV Christ, is very precious to God. He is a chief corner stone upon this spiritual house God is building. You’re precious to God too, and " as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ " 1 Peter 2:5. We’re priests, who offer to God those things that please him - you matter so much to God. Christ is precious to you who believe in God through him, for without him we can do nothing, all our royalty is because him, and to those who reject him still he’s  precious, that when iniquity abounds they may fall. But you are not like them, for  through Christ you have been chosen by God himself, you are God's very own - all this so that you may show to others how God called you o
