The past Month

So many things have occurred to me in the past month that here I will detail just a few experiences. I begin by telling of the greatness of God and how good and loving He is to me. That I a sinner should daily receive His mercies, allowing me to steadfastly grow in the faith and in His love. I am constantly in need of remembrance of the gospel of his Son by which he redeemed me and purchased me. He set me free from sin and made me an heir with His Son all to the praise of His glorious grace.

The closing of March witness the football varsity against Bristol and UWE won the match after a penalty shoot out. I was awarded with the man of the match for UWE although it was to my surprise but a fitting way to end my career as a UWE football player. The season has brought me much joy and although plagued with injury God granted me the grace to play through the pain and to glorify his name.

In March I also handed in my dissertation and now waiting for my results - I could have done better and what was weird was that I had a dream previously of the manner of which I would hand in my dissertation and Lo it came about to be true. I chuckled and rejoiced in the goodness of the Lord and commit all to him. I was glad that I had no more deadlines but all there is now is revision for my coming exam of which I aim to excel at.

Many other things happened in March of which one I am exceedingly joyful. Pip and Jay football club won the Gfa cup competition of which I played a part and received a medal. I was glad to be part of this great achievement as it is the first trophy in Pip and Jay’s history.

God provided for me financially and in His sovereignty enabled me to minister to others. The opening month of April bought with it the joy of spring as the Sun shined brightly. A week later I was at New word alive of which I learnt many things and God encouraged in the power of the gospel.

Now back at home in London, I aim to read many literature and prepare to revise for my exam. God is good and lovely and I pray that this month I may spend in increasing my joy in Him and excel in love towards his saints and all that dwell upon this fallen earth.

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…
