TWS- THE EAGLE’S WAY

The Eagle gives us a perfect picture of how effective Rehab can be. The Eagle can live up to Seventy (70) years. To live this long, it goes through a process in its life. This process is not an easy one, it is a painful one.
The talons of an Eagle works properly for Forty (40) years. After Forty (40) years, its talons become weak. Thus, the Eagle will be unable to grab a prey. Its long and sharp beak also becomes bent. Its thick feathers become stuck to the chest due to its heavy wings. This makes soaring difficult. At this point in its life, it is left with only two (2) options; either to give up and die or go through a painful process of changes that lasts for about five (5) months.
If the Eagle chooses to live, it flies to the top of a mountain and sits on a nest. The first thing the Eagle does is to strike its beak against a rock so it can pull out. When that is done, it waits for a new beak to grow. The next process is to pluck out its talons. As in the first process, it waits for new talons to grow back. The third process is the plucking out of old and thick feathers, and also wait for them to grow back.
When all these painful processes are completed, the Eagle will then wait for Five (5) months to recover and renew its strength. It can then soar again and enjoy a renewed life for another thirty (30) years.
We are getting there.
Stay blessed.

TWS- THE WAITING PLACE

What do you do when all that you have laboured to build gradually fizzle before you?

What do you do when you do all you know how to do, and it just seems not to be working out? What do you do when you see yourself within touching distance of victory and success, only to see yourself fall back to square one?
What do you do when life happens?

My friends, there are times when every proven method seem to fail. There are even times when your friends will be far away, your connections will fail and even family will leave you to your peril. There are also times when you come to your wits end and it seems like you have no more strength left to carry on. These are times when it is like the only option left is to throw in the towel. My friends, those are times when life happens.
It could be that as you are reading this, you are already at that point when you are considering giving up on liferathon. It could even be that you have written that suicide note, and about to take the pill, kick the stool or maybe pull the trigger. Then this is good news coming your way.
I want to recommend a place for you. I choose to call it REHAB. It is a place where weakness is exchanged for strength, hopeless situations receive hope and death is replaced with life. Here, all you lost will be restored. It is a place of waiting.

He’s the one who gives might to the faint, renewing strength for the powerless. Even boys grow tired and weary, and young men collapse and fall, but those who keep waiting for the Lord will renew their strength. Then they’ll soar on wings like eagles; they’ll run and not grow weary; they’ll walk and not grow tired.

Isa. 40:28 (ISV).

Welcome to REHAB.

Stay blessed.

WWF- God’s Word Always Works contd.

James 1:4
AMP:
But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.

You need to walk yourself into an even and open place and stand and stay there, for the Sun of Righteousness to always shine down on you. Yield your total self to God’s Spirit to bring you to this place of truth. John 16:13. And start running God’s word program on the RAM of your brain (your mind) 24/7, irrespective of any other thing you may be doing.

You may think, But that’s not possible. I tell you, It is.

If you determine to do it by the help of the Holy Spirit, the Anointing that teaches us God’s word, it won’t be long when your mind and your brain will adjust to that. Just start by making a simple prayer to God, with a heart full of faith towards Him.

Psalm 4:3-5
KJV:
But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.

Also set your mind that you want to make this all for ‘Jesus-ish’ reason, without any trace of selfish reason/hidden agenda, unlike some people that try to use God for their selfishness. When you work at making it all ‘Jesus-ishness’, a memory slot will be created in your brain for the times to come, as to always put you under check. So that you don’t get carried away by reason of great results you witness in your life. Please, make all you do ‘Jesus-ish’ always.

Give it a leap of faith today, and start working constantly in the supernatural, which is God’s mind for everyone in Christ Jesus. John 14:12. And though at the beginning, the devil will come to tell you in the thoughts of your mind and hearing of your ears, “This can’t work, you see.” Just be quick to laugh out at him “Hahahaha”, and reply him, “I know you are a liar. This is surely working and it shall work for me graciously. So, I resist you in Jesus Christ’s Name. Be gone from me.” And he will leave you alone. But he doesn’t give up on one trial. So be ready in the Holy Spirit to talk back to him again with the boldness of our Lord Jesus Christ any other time he shows up. And don’t be tired, nor be afraid, of talking out loud to him resistively and authoritatively.

The creations await your manifestation as offsprings of God. Romans 8:19. There is a move of the display of God’s kingdom power going on in this end time like never before. Be part of it!

Have a blessed month!

TWS-LIFERATHON

I have said earlier in this series that life is a race, a marathon race at that. If life then is a race, it therefore connotes that we are athletes. Also remember I said the rules here are different from the first hurdle you passed. In the race before you came to earth, your victory was dependent on the inability of others to reach the mark before you. But in Liferathon, you are solely responsible for the outcome.

As I looked into some marathon racers that wrote their names in the sand of time, I noticed a commonality, which will take us closer to the main theme of this series.

I noticed that in a marathon race, you do not need to attack the race with all your strength at the beginning. You can run at a steady pace and at the same time keep a close distance with other athletes. As the race progresses, you gradually increase momentum.

Let me say this to you today; your starting might be slow, but it does not mean you cannot win. All you need to do is gradually increase your momentum, with time, you will have the victory. Quitting the race should never be an option to consider. If you are considering that now, I will plead with you to stay with me till the end of this series. I am trusting God that you will definitely receive strength to get to the finish line of this Liferathon.

Stay blessed.
And a happy new month to you

WWF- God’s Word Always Works.

Isaiah 65:24
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear

There is a place where God’s word always works, because the word of the Lord always works. Remember God is His Word Himself. John 1:1-3. A man is as good as His word. To say God’s word doesn’t work sometimes is to doubt the infallibility of The Godhead. If God’s word seems not working in your life, it’s simply because you are not well placed and rightly positioned. Won’t you give it all it takes to get yourself into a place where God’s word always works? Remember God means what He says, and He says what He means.

This placement of a thing is easy to comprehend. You can’t practise medicine until you have been trained for it. The training for it brings you into a place of expertise, for the constant working of medicine in you and through you, so to speak. This goes for all professions. And you continually upgrade yourself with trainings and writing of professional exams to keep you abreast of time, and to be leading always in that field.

The same thing applies here in the spirit realm. The reason why it seems God’s word isn’t working in your life now is that you have not come into that right place, by reason of training…

TWS-SPRINGBOARD

For every symbolic event in history, there is a defining moment. A lot of activities could contribute to culminate that historic event, but there is always this moment when it will be conspicuous that history will be made.

The 78th minute goal scored by Victor Ikpeba during the 1996 Olympic semi final game between Nigeria and Brazil was obviously the defining moment of that historic game.

During the historic marathon race of 1960, the defining moment in that race was the sight of the Obelisk of Axum by Abebe Bikila as he strode towards the finish line. For a great part of the game, he tried to keep abreast of the race favourite. But the sight of that statue became his springboard to writing his name in the history books.

Out of all the things going on in your life now, there is that particular one that is your springboard to victory and greatness. You will need to pray for sensitivity in order to make the most out of it. That difficult situation you are in today that has brought you to the point of almost throwing in the towel, could just be the spring board to victory. Hang in there, don’t give up yet, you are just one step away from winning. Just step on the spring board and win.

Stay blessed.
