A month has gone by since I last wrote a story. My September was so busy but I’m thankful we all made it to see the new month.
Sunday is the beginning of a new week and I’ve come to believe that indeed how we spend our Sunday’s most times determines how our week goes.
I have several testimonies to back this up but I’ll just share one.
Sometime in August, we had a service in church on the mystery of feet washing. We were admonished to engage in it.
There was an empty flat in the building I lived that I wanted to move into but the landlord had increased the house rent. When I got home I washed my feet and went into the flat. I walked around it and prayed, telling God what I wanted to happen. Afterwards I called the lawyer and told him I wanted the flat for the previous amount, he said no I had to pay the new amount.
I wasn’t worried because I felt at peace in my heart and I trusted God to sort out things for me. The next day, the lawyer called and said I could take the flat for the previous amount. I smiled and thanked God because I knew he would call back.
At the time I did not even think that God had a better place than where I wanted to manage. Where I am about to move into a hundred times better than where I was going to settle for and more comfortable (electricity, security and water) and the best part is my rent has been paid in full.
Hebrews 10:25 Amplified Bible Version tells us;
“Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.”
A couple of questions have been on my mind these past couple of weeks
1. How do you go to church and not write down anything ? Not even scriptures or key lessons to go back home and reflect on.
2. How do you expect to remember all God promises you in every service you have ever attended ?
3. Why do you even go to church ?
4. Why don’t you go to church ?
(Try answering these questions honestly)
Good News!! There’s hope. Gods power is greater than our habits.
In the New Living Translation Bible, 1 Corinthians 15:57 says;
“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Amplified bible version translates 1 Corinthians 15:57 to;
“But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
All you have to do is believe that God has the power to make you cultivate new habits that will help you become better and it will happen.
As we enter into a new week tomorrow, let us remember why it is important to always start every week with God not just for our own benefit but so that our lives can reach out and minister to others.
Have a great week ahead. I’ll be publishing daily this week by Gods grace.
Have a goodnight rest.
