2012 Your Lot seems indefinate and insecure?


The mark of a New Year holds so much hope. The few hours of the eve are marked in reverence and the last minute countdown and hours following forms the basis of celebration. We take to the streets, we jump, we praise God, we hug, we cry among other activities. It is always a mark of disconnect from the past. Many times we are glad that we are done with the another year of struggle, ill-health and other misfortunes.

Seldom do we count the blessing that were. The promises full-filled. The achievements, accolades and rewards earned.

But then again there is the baggage that spills over. The unpaid debts, the ever rising costs that comes with our responsibilities. As if that is not enough, life whips you some more with extra loads of misfortune. You lose dear ones, loss of jobs, accidents or fall ill. It is at this point that yes one might have crosses over into 2012 but they grieve.

The bible reminds us in Ephesians 6:12 that our fight is not physical but spiritual. The evil ones has hints of our destinies and wants to discourage us.In 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 we are extolled by Apostle Paul to remember that in our pursuit of God through Christ we have to endure. I particularly likeĀ  Vs 3 “…God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles…”. Many of us cannot speak what we are undergoing but be reminded that God who started the God works in you has so much in store for you. Many times we are confused for there is no indication or possibility of getting out.

We search for help and none seems forthcoming. This is the time to remember God’s faithfulness in the past. Tell your soul and flesh that God has good plans Jeremiah 29:11. Sing praise for the awaiting miracle and great deliverance. Even with no signs all around be strong of faith and take everything a step at a time. In the eleventh and twelveth hour the God Almighty will show up.

Jobs will come calling, new clothes will find way into your closet, neighbours will confess about your deliverance. Health will be yours again and who knows your end might be the best ever like Job.

Take heart and put on a strong fight since God is in control. I pray blessings unto you in the teething problems of 2012.

Another Year


Today I celebrate the fall of another year and the start of a new one. Many Year today right within this hour I was born. And they named me:-

“Added Blessing” – Joseph

“Territorial Master” – Karungani

“Sweet thorn Fruit” – Lunani

I also share the name “Karungani” with my grandfather who had just passed on that same year in July. His accomplishments were great. Being a flamboyant stout figure, he wore the Chief Inspector’s Police uniform and office well. He was known as true African Warrior, straight forward and hard working.

I continue my journey with this inspiration and like the Bible’s Joseph son of Jacob- I always strive to be a solution provider at all times. Cheers to all for another year well lived!!

Obedience


“Obedience has nothing to do with ‘feelings’ and many times our will to obey will have to be set against what we ‘feel’. Jesus may not have ‘felt’ like going to the cross, but He disregarded that so as to do the Father’s will. We likewise must do the same. Unless our feelings are brought into subjection to the Father, then they are vain, idle, and will prevent us from doing God’s will.” Diana Kilel

The bible retorts “Obedience is better than sacrifice”. It also says elsewhere “The obedient shall eat the fruit of the Land”

The most profound would be Proverbs 19:16 which says, “He who obeys instructions guards his life but he who is contemptuous of his ways will die” NIV.

“Trust and Obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey” that Sunday school rhyme as derived from the book of Mathew is an easy song but the reality of obedience in this treacherous world is a task that only those who pursue it fervently in discipline will never seize it. The key is to try and whenever you miss the mark you re-align yourself to God once again by repenting and never going back to that same error.

If I was to award my men, I will start with those that are most obedient and loyal. And surely God is no different for who will deny those that trust and obey him?
