Are you crippled by fear in evangelism?

Faith in God is able to cripple all your fears in evangelism. You see your fear arises because you have set your eyes upon man and not upon God. You are convinced that the man may ridicule your presentation, be wiser than you, think you a fool for believing such nonsense. You focus on yourself and your own inability and this are the reasons why you are crippled by fear but now oh man lift your eyes to the Lord and be like Caleb who did not look at the strength of the Canaanites and the weakness of Israel but he looked upon God Almighty who is the Lord of Host and the Canaanites were destroyed thus Israel entered the land flowing with milk and Honey. Set your eyes upon the Lord and delight yourself in His power for your God is able to save and if we rely on His mercy, grace and Love, then what have we to fear? For if I go out placing all of my hope in God waiting for Him to display His glory through me, will I be disappointed? Absolutely not for fear shall flee from me and with great boldness and love I shall speak, rebuke, and exhort my fellow citizens with the gospel of Christ. I shall pack my bag, head to the streets and ask to pray for the heathens knowing that God is already at work and I am just joining in His work. God is able to save, so when I venture in all circumstances to reach my fellow men, I care nothing for comfort or happiness, sorrow or pain, nor in the will of man but all my hope is in the sovereign mercy of God that perhaps God through me will do a work which will ripple through the end of time. Now, reflect upon your own life and evangelism (your desire to tell your people about the whole counsel of God), where are your eyes set, are you yet crippled by fear if you are then I beseech you to set your eyes upon God believing that He is able to conquer giants and move mountains of which you are to be the instrument on which the victory will commence.

But you may say how can I set my eyes wholly upon God in order to be rid of all my fears? I shall tell you how my dear friend!

First, ask yourself is God able to do whatever He pleases? Absolutely! And is anyone able to restrict his hand? Certainly not. In the past has not God moved in your life, in History, and in others in ways unexpected and has he not by  His mercy brought about great revivals and the salvation of the most wicked souls? Absolutely! And ask yourself this question, are you believing and trusting that God is able to use you for His glory - to bring about the salvation of your precious friends? Are you assured that God is passionately devoted to the task of restoring and redeeming his people (those who are not yet his) because they are in need to hear the gospel from your lips and see the fruits of your Christian life?

My friends, focus on Christ and your heart will be easily encouraged. Fear will become to you like an ant of which is no difficulty for you to crush. In view of this, of looking entirely upon God more in faith (for faith expresses itself in actions and works) you will see heaven invade earth in all your endeavour and the power of the Spirit will flood your entire ministry. Also faith expresses itself in prayer, in continual prayer for it is the expression of your dependence upon God. If a man prayeth not his faith is weak but if a man is found constantly on bended knees, He is entirely full of faith and in time of the hour He shall duly fulfil his task and the Spirit will speak and act accordingly through him as He wills. I am a transgressor in this as well my friends but today I repent by gazing upon the man on the cross in whom all my sins were nailed, and by whom I am justified and eternally accepted. I gaze and watch as he bows his head and gives His soul, then He was taken down, dead, balmed, and buried. I gaze yet and found him to be raised and therein all my hopes resurrected, and before my eyes, to the eye of my soul I see Him with a glittering smile. I gaze as I watch Him fly to the His heavenly throne and today I gaze knowing that he is here with me and though His Spirit which lives in me my eyes can see and adore the perfections of His Godly face. Oh my beloved, my beloved, my eyes will never fade from thee as yours never fade from me.

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
