THE godly’s STRUGGLE

AMP:For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].

Romans 7: 15

This was Apostle Paul talking, he was talking  about what majority  of Christians are passing through then , now and even in times to come,  some  more than others,  but all the same we passing through it…. I am passing through  it,  and trusting  God to come to the stage “where I do that which I ought to do and not do that which I ought not to/hate to do.”

Do I have a formula to it,  nope!!!  I’m still  at the feet of the Master waiting/ learning, some times rising and falling and trusting that in due season this tests will turn to testimonies, but I will tell you what I have learnt and still learning….

1) God loves us sooo much…  It’s overwhelming… and our deeds does not reduce His love for us.

2)Our sins and misdeeds only disconnects us from our Father as He cannot stand/behold sin,  but it does not,  and I repeat  IT DOES NOT stop His love for us,  HE really doesnt’t care about the Depth or strength  of the misdeeds…  He misses you and longs to fellowship with you .

3) The devil’s strategy has always been to break of the fellowship  between man and his Creator…  I was taught in school of discipleship  that the BATTLE CRY OF THE DEVIL is to break the fellowship.. …  Now knowing that this is what the devil  desires……….

4)When you fall/ if you fall… fall to the Father  of light, don’t be like Adam who hid himself from the Father when he fell…. no no no!!!, run back to the Father,  no matter what happens, do not run from the Father…

This is what the Father is saying to you..

AMP:Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]

Hebrews 4: 16

I just love the amplified version…  Do you see that this verse is not referring to unbelievers but to us who have been saved…  (I am dancing in the spirit)…  Oh trust me Jesus Christ knowwwss, He knows and He is telling you,  come BOLDLY, COME TAKE WHAT YOU NEED TO HELP YOU EVEN IN TIMES TO COME… HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT… 

5) Develop your relationship  with. The Father….  I’ll give an analogy  and wrap up.

Two sons and a father…….

FIRST STORY:  Joseph and Benjamin are the sons and Jacob is their father,  now Joseph developed his relationship( I will  post a blog on how and what to do,  to develop our intimacy with God the Father) with his father and he was his father’s beloved, they were soooo  close..  And one day Joseph took his dad’s  money without permission…. When his dad returned home,  Joseph  ran to his father  so remorseful and blessed for mercy,  now even though his father felt hurt,  because he ran back and confessed he was forgiven even though greatly chastised ….  Now  on the other hand Benjamin was not close  to his father,  he had an illusion that his father was a strict man,  now whenever Benjamin  did bad,  he would be so scared, he would run and hide… And when his dad  would find out… He would be sooo  upset and punish him so hard….  making his already existing illusion of a wicked and strict father stronger than before….. thereby pushing him further away from his father (the devil’s  battle cry)   

SECOND STORY: are we  familiar with the story of the prodigal son?!! Like 15: 11-32!…  Have you ever wondered the  type of relationship between this  father and son to give the son the IMPETUS to request for his share of his father’s wealth? Even while his father was alive …  They must have been really close…  Now the other son was basically  in the background  through out the story and to me he was not close to his father either…  Back to the prodigal son,  he had done a great wrong..  But He knew his father,  he knew the relationship  he had with his father,  and that gave him the boldness to run back to the his father to receive  mercy .

The summary of this stories is that when  you develop your intimacy  with the Father,  when you understand that He understands and wants to help you.. When you really come to the understanding  that He gave His only begotten son…  That your Father  who is slow to anger….  It gives you the boldness to run to HIM

DO NOT GIVE THE DEVIL THE FOOT HOLD HE DESIRES IN YOUR LIFE.

Wedding bells!!!! 

All her life she prayed to God to send her that man that would love her just the way Christ loves the church………….

Fees weeks into their dating…. 😱😱😱

Michael goes on one knee on the streets of Juliet’s home, bringing out a box as his right knee hits the cold wet ground,  😱she could not  believe her blurred eyes… She thought to herself ” I said I wasn’t gonna cry”, ohhhhh Michael!!!!were the only  words to leave her mouth and then he asked the life changing question ” Jules  baby will you do me the honor of becoming my wife? 💍 ” ……………..

All Juliet could do was nod her head,  but in her heart she kept on repeating the words ” Thank You Jesus”……

THE END…. OF THE BEGINNING

Let the wedding preparation 🔔 be sounded…

Juliet is and has always been an economist and a simple minded being, she pictured a small and inexpensive 💒 wedding,  to the horror of her friends and most especially  her family…  Being the Ada (only girl/or first girl)  in this case she was both,   her mom felt it should be the wedding of the year…  but Juliet was a vast reader and a social media person so she was well read and knew alot of things about big wedding with small pockets…  It spelt DEBT DEBT DEBT!!!!! 😑😬😵 and she wasn’t having any of that.

So she started with her wedding plans,  working with a guest list of 100 people which she wished she could still reduce,  decided to go with just one type of meal, and was about requesting that her traditional and white wedding be done n the same day, when  her family  interrupted her plans with a big No Way.

The End….

Now to the real talk?  Who created this  laws that weddings had to be a big glitsandglam affair,  or that holding  all your wedding in one day was a kill joy!!! 😂😢😒😒😒🙀 what is wrong with having a small simple  family wedding ?

I read recently of a guy who used the money he had saved up for the wedding reception to buy himself and the wife their first new 🚗…. and alot of people attacked,  most especially the LADIES… 😂  Nigerians though… Kini  big deal?!!!

I plan on having the smallest simplest  and the most beautiful wedding with few friends and families… I have already readied my sorries… For all my people and relations who won’t make it cause it will fall on a week  day… All na strategy 😁😁😁😁😂….

All that matters at the end of the day is God,  you and your spouse… Ecc4:12…..

So guys tell me something how do you picture your  wedding day.. Most especially the guys,  I’m of the school of thought that is the man’s day as well 50/50..
