A lot of folks entertain the wrong notion that prosperity is alien to the believer and that God is averse to the idea of His children prospering. But nothing can be further from the truth because God’s word reveals that He delights in the prosperity of His servants (Ps 35:27). So it gets him excited to see His children prospering. Prosperity refers to a state of sufficiency and completeness or roundedness in every sphere of life with nothing missing or broken. In other words, you have all things working together for your good in every endeavour of life – finance, career, marriage, academics, ministry and so on. To that extent, you can readily deduce that many who are rich materially are not necessarily prosperous! Beloved, true prosperity can only be a product of God’s limitless grace made available to us on the bill of Christ’s finished works. It takes only God to make rich without adding any atom of sorrow to it. 2 Cor 9:8 says the God of all grace is able to make all grace abound towards us to the point that we always enjoy all sufficiency in all things. Wow…glory to God! The assurance that our prosperity has always been the Father’s original plan is lucidly stated in 2 Cor 8:9. Jesus the Son of God became poor so that we can be rich. Now we have no business putting up with poverty because God gives us ALL things RICHLY to enjoy (1Tim 6:17). This is worth rejoicing over, isn’t it?
If you are a believer, this is your own reality in Christ Jesus. Believe it with every fibre of your being, be a cheerful giver for God blesses us to be a blessing to others (Gen 12:2) and your life will soon be a glowing example of prosperity to the unbelieving world. You are blessed and happy Easter celebrations. Love you!
Previously, I showed us that love was the Father’s motive for giving up His only begotten Son to harvest more sons into His kingdom upon whom He can lavish His profound love. So we are now the objects of God’s love…this is simply mind-blowing! You see our Father does not love us because we deserve it, He loves us because love is His very nature, His very essence. 1 John 4:8 says God is Love. I have good news for you. In Jesus who is the ultimate gift of the Father, you have access to everything else you could ever desire – a good job, a blissful home, healing, financial prosperity, victory over the enemy, protection and so on. Without a doubt, the greatest miracle of all time is the miracle of salvation. How a one-time serial killer and persecutor of the church suddenly became a brand new man without a past simply by believing and confessing the Lordship of Jesus (not his sins for how many could he confess) Rom 10:9-10. Wow! What a miracle!!! I’m referring to Paul who later professed that he had wronged no man (2 Cor 7:2). Really? The blood of Jesus had ‘formatted’ his past.
Now, let us zero in on the Father’s provision for our healing and health. Surprisingly, a lot of people have the faith to get saved but not to get healed. But Jesus was beaten and chastised for our healing (1Pet 2:24, Is 53:5, Matt 8:17). In the perfect work of redemption, he bought us back from sin and all its consequences including sicknesses. Beloved, receive your healing today because Jesus paid for it. The same faith that got you saved can get you healed. God desires above all things that you prosper and live in health (3John1:2). Do not be deceived or short-changed.
Stay tuned for more and God bless you. Love you.

A sacrifice refers to something of worth purposely given up to gain another. How much you are willing to give up or part with to get something is a reflection of your estimation of its value or worth. In other words, you want to get commensurate returns on your investment. Have you ever considered what God, the only Wise One had in mind when He sacrificed His ONLY Son for the sins of the entire world? It’s profit! Glory to God. Now see how many children he has won into His ever-expanding Kingdom by that PERFECT sacrifice. Jesus is that Perfect sacrifice! Love motivated our dear Father to sacrifice His only Son for our sake because of the tremendous value He placed on us. What a profound display of benevolence! Beloved, you are so precious to God (1John3:1, John3:16, Eph1:6). You are the apple of His doting eyes. Wake up to that reality today. In this series, I will be showing you the amazing privileges and benefits you stand to enjoy by reason of that PERFECT sacrifice. Please stay tuned and stay blessed.
Image Credit: Bibledaily.org To start with, very many know that righteousness means to have a right standing with God. However, not many people have the correct knowledge of how to become righteous. At one extreme, several folks are of the opinion that it’s practically impossible to be righteous as humans to the extent that they deem it outright heresy for anyone to profess that they are righteous. Furthermore, a good number of people equally hold the extreme view that all they need to be righteous before God are good works. I am glad to announce that righteousness is a gift! (Rom 5:17) It’s the Father’s gift to us through Christ Jesus, imparting us with a new nature and qualifying us to stand right with Him without any sense of guilt, condemnation, sin-consciousness or inferiority complex (2Cor 5:21). How do I mean? If you have to work hard or labour for it, then it’s not righteousness. The righteousness of works is as filthy rags before God because it cannot satisfy the requirements of the Law Rom3:20. However, Jesus Christ has been made our righteousness (1Cor1:30). He fulfilled every law on our behalf and credited it to our account Rom8:3-4. You become truly righteous by simply believing in your HEART that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and confessing the Lordship of Jesus with your MOUTH Rom 10:9-10. Your mouth and your heart must agree to get you saved and bring you into a right standing with the Father. This is the New Birth into a new family – the family of God 1John3:1,9-10. It confers on you a new nature – the nature of God. Every family is not without its own customs and traditions. Sin and every evil work is characteristic of the family of the devil. In the family of God, we are divinely empowered by grace to live right and shun all sorts of immorality Rom 6. This is how we live true to our nature. Stay #blessed!!!
Happy New Year dearest esteemed reader. You made 2014 worth the while for me…thanks a lot and wishing you a WONDERFUL 2015!
Beloved friends, it’s another golden opportunity to remind ourselves of the unsearchable depths of God’s LOVE for us – if He sacrificed Jesus for us, then no gift is too big for Him to give us! (Rom 8:32)
Arguably, Jesus is God’s greatest gift of love to mankind. Redemption would have remained a mere wish but for this profound, love-motivated sacrifice of our Father.
Jesus Christ was the seed the Father sowed, we are the glorious harvest He has reaped! What a mystery? Little wonder He calls us sons and daughters (1John3:1). No wonder we have been accepted in the beloved (Eph 1:6).
The Messiah, the sacrificial Lamb took our place and bore our griefs so we need not bear them anymore (Is 53:5).
In conclusion, as we relish the season and enjoy the festive mood, it is of paramount importance that we meditate on these things.
May all that concerns you and yours be perfected in this season IJN. You are truly special to me!
Wishing you a Merry Xmas and a glorious New Year in advance. Cheers!!!❤🌸💐🌺
Have you been groping in the thick darkness of chronic misery with no future in view at all?
Don’t give up just yet, the Light of life can change your story today. If only you will let Him, He will take you by the hand and lead you from where you are to where you ought to be.
Oh someone out there with a broken heart and a low spirit? Give the LOVE Specialist an in-road into your heart, He will sure mend you and lift your spirit. Mortals may have refused you but you have been accepted in the beloved (Eph 1:6).
Are you so overwhelmed by the challenges and hurdles of life that you sometimes feel like ending it all? Only accept His warm embrace and He will make life worth living again!
Or you were only recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and doctors have told you to put your house in order? Listen, the Healer has said something different about you: arise and take up your bed (Matt 9:6).
Beloved, cast all your cares and worries on Him today because He truly cares (1Peter5:7). Jesus is the ONLY way out of all the nagging evils bedeviling our generation today and you will be doing yourself a world of good to allow Him into your life. It’s so simple…just BELIEVE in your HEART that God raised Him from the dead and CONFESS with your MOUTH His Lordship over your life (Rom 10:9-10).
Did you just do that? That’s amazing! You are saved!!!
Jesus has now become to you a Father, a Friend, a Companion and a Healer. Glory to God!
Now it will be of tremendous benefit to read your bible daily and join a Bible-practising church where you will be taught God’s word.
You are blessed and remember I love you!
Halo peeps! Just tryn 2 catch up on today’s assignment cos the day is almost winding up here in my beloved Nigeria. I know you care about what I care about – LOVE, yea love.

I am a love-oriented blogger intoxicated by the fresh wine of love to do what? To love all and sundry without condition.
I am CREATIVE in love because I was CREATED to love.
More still, I am of the opinion that life is not worth living if I do not love and I am not loved.
Love is the unfailing cord that binds the entirety of universe together. Is it not the only formidable force that can unite a man and a woman of divergent backgrounds and converge the duo into a couple that stay glued together for life, come rain, come sunshine?
Without love, the very foundation of life itself falls apart, helplessly
