4 IMPORTANT FACTORS TO BEING A CHRISTIAN

1. You have to be Bold. You should not allow fear to consume you. Don’t let it get in the way of you sharing your faith. You should always proclaim the kingdom of God no matter where you are; be you. Stand for what you believe in and not even let any cowardly behaviour get in your way. You should not lack confidence as confidence comes from the Lord.

2. Love unconditionally. Love the way God loves us and the way you love yourself. Remember that God is love and this is deeply reflected in the Bible. He is able to reach use even in our darkest times, our sufferings and pain; nothing can separate us from His love. This is the kind of love we should preach and live in the world.
3. Pray regularly. In everything you do and everywhere you go you should pray. Prayer should be your lifestyle, it should be your all time trade that people will always remember you by. When we fail to pray on a regular, daily basis, and we don’t readHis Word, we show that He is not really that important to us and we are not being faithful.


4. Abstain from sin. Christians still sin, but they do not remain in sin or keep on sinning as if nothing is wrong. We can’t act like we don’t know right and wrong, we have to lead by example and proof that really we have been born again and we know what sin is.

WHY GOD MAKES YOU SUFFER SOMETIMES?

Why do you think does God allow you to sufferHave you ever considered if He really cares about your sufferingsToday I want to tell you that there are reasons why the lord makes us suffer and those reasons are included in the following according to James L Milton.

Some People Suffer for the Salvation of Lost Souls
God makes us suffer because He is trying to tell us something. By allowing suffering He is showing us that something is wrong. God doesn’t ENJOY seeing anyone suffer, but He does ALLOW people to suffer for various reasons. God may bring tragedy into your life so that he can get your attention. Like for example the leper of Matthew 8:2, do you think he would have come to Jesus if he had been in perfect health? What about the blind man of Luke 18:35? 
The Bible is filled with cases where God reaches people through suffering. Nebuchadnezzar didn’t fear God until God humbled him by making him spend seven years of his life on his hands and knees like an animal (Dan. 4:30-37).
No one suffers in vain. God always has a reason, and sometimes He is trying to show someone their need to receive the Lord Jesus Christ. Could this be true in your own life? Think about it. Could the Lord be convicting you of the fact that you are a sinner, and you need to be saved?
Some Christians Suffer for the Lord Jesus Christ
II Timothy 3:12 says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” Then II Timothy 2:12 says, “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him…” Jesus said, “. . . . If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” (Luke. 9:23) 
When a Christian chooses to deny himself and follow Christ, they choose to suffer for the Lord. The world has always found a way to persecute God’s people, and we should not be surprised when persecution arises. Jesus suffered for us, and we should count it an honour to suffer for Him. In Acts 5:41 the Apostles rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for the Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus said that we should rejoice when we suffer for His sake, because GREAT is our reward in Heaven (Mt. 5:12). I Peter 2:19-21 tells us that it is our duty to follow our Lord’s example in suffering, and I Peter 4:12-16 tells us to be happy when we suffer for Christ, and it tells us not to be ashamed. 
God Teaches Us Valuable Lessons Through Suffering
Not all suffering Christians are disobedient Christians. There are many very dear Christians who go through great agony every day, yet they are some of sweetest and most God-fearing saints you’ll ever meet. Why does God allow them to suffer? There are many reasons.
One reason is humility. If we believed some of the popular “Faith Healers” of our day, we’d believe that people suffer because they lack faith in God, but this isn’t necessarily true. The Apostle Paul didn’t live in sin and he didn’t lack faith in God, but he DID have to suffer. Why? He tells us why in II Corinthians 12:7: “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.” Whatever this thorn in the flesh was, verses eight and nine tell us that God chose NOT to take it from Paul. Instead, He chose to give Paul the GRACE to bear the burden. God used this problem in Paul’s life to help keep him humble, to keep him from being exalted above measure.
Sometimes God sees the need to put us through some things for the purpose of making us stronger. God will also use suffering to teach us patience. Romans 5:3 tells us that, Tribulation worketh patience
Some people suffer so that they will be better equipped to comfort others in their suffering (II Cor. 1:3-4). It’s always a blessing to know someone who has gone through the same troubles that you are going through, for they usually have some helpful words of comfort and wisdom. Are you going through some pretty tough times? Maybe the Lord is giving you the experience that you’ll need to help someone else later.

WRITING FOR CHRIST ACCORDING TO HIS GIDUELINES

What does it really mean to write for Christ? How exactly do you write for Christ? Does your story have to be out-right religious or blatantly about God in order to write for Christ?
Writing for God is all about reflecting on his character by Glorifying Him. God is everywhere and anywhere at any given time therefore we don’t always have to state the obvious when we write.
Before we even start to write the article, we should think about the truth. We should be able to tell a story without being fictional but only using your skills and techniques to get the message across. Yes we should be creative but we shouldn’t beat down our storyline. Furthermore, we should pray for guidance before we even start writing your story. We should bring out spiritual or character building principles that the reader can put into practice their life.
Our work has to be good quality and perfect just as our father is perfect. Of course, we will never be able to attain perfection, and getting frustrated with our work will not help things. Sometimes, the only way we can get better, is to let ourselves practice. Practice is the only way we can get better. So we don’t have to be perfect to reflect God. We just have to do our best, and always strive to get better, never resting on our laurels. That honours God.
We should also reflect God through our demonstration of His truth. Anything that is true is of God. Jesus said He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). God is described as “the Spirit of Truth,” (John 16:3). God is truth; therefore, by writing about and displaying truth, we are writing for Christ; displaying the real and ultimate truth. 
By writing a story with a moral showing that truth is truth, regardless of what people believe, you are writing for Christ.
By writing stories displaying and promoting Hope, Joy, Courage, Perseverance, Humility, Faith, Altruism, Peace, Mercy, Grace, etc. we are writing for Christ because we are reflecting the character of God. We may or may not include God in our writing, by name, but by displaying His truths and saying, “this is true,” we are putting God in our writing, and we are writing for Christ.
Also, if we strive to write for Christ, we will not be writing alone. If we abandon ourselves to God, then He can use us for His glory. He will guide us as we craft and develop our stories.
If you think about it, there are infinite ways to write for Christ and to glorify God. By writing for God, glory will not only be brought to Him, but we will be taking part in the spreading of God’s kingdom on earth. We can spread truth, and free the culture from its pervasive lies.
The beautiful reality is people are starving for these kinds of stories, and not just Christians. Truth and reality are far more wonderful than the fake. By combiningGod’s truth with a high quality story, we can write novels which deeply impact Christians and non-Christians alike.

HABITS EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD DEVELOP

“In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch”. – Psalm 5:3

1. Study the Word of God. Don’t just read it. Study it. Study means digging into the Word, delving into its deeper meanings, applying it to your life.
2. Memorize the Word of God. Hiding God’s Word in your heart will make it readily available to you when you need it. There may be times coming when we will not be permitted to carry our Bibles with us wherever we go. Memorizing Scripture will enable you to carry it with you all the time.  Remember: What you plant in your heart can never be taken away from you.
3. Encourage yourself in the Lord. “But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.” (1 Samuel 30:6 ESV) We spend a lot of our time encouraging and rooting for everyone else (which is what we should be doing!), but when it comes to encouraging ourselves we lack that skill.  We tend to expect that others should encourage and root for us, but when that does not happen (as it often does not) we become disappointed, discouraged and disheartened. 
4. Pray without ceasing. This means that we are to carry on a running conversation with the Lord all day long. Prayer is both a privilege and a responsibility. Through prayer we communicate with God and He communicates with us. When we pray, we should do more listening than talking because God is way smarter than we are.
5. Fellowship with other believers. Jesus made it clear that as the times grow darker, the more should we believers gather together in prayer, worship, and fellowship. The members of the Body of Christ need one another to stay strong, to grow, and to fulfill Christ’s purpose for His Church.
6. Relying on God’s provision instead of the lack of money. Monetary is not necessarily needed. God’s currency is not necessarily monetary; He also deals in favour.
7. Be sensitive to Holy Spirit’s leading. Each morning, ask Him where He is working today in your circle of influence then follow Him there.
8. Don’t believe the lies and hype of the enemy. Abstain from jumping to conclusions as to how or what God is doing.
9. Reminding yourself of His promises and His goodness. Check your thoughts and adjust them accordingly. 
10. Acknowledge to yourself that He has heard you. We tend to assume that because something we prayed about in our lives is not currently evident, that God has not heard our prayers.
“Not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one other; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:25

MAKE TIME FOR GOD

How to make time for God in our busy life and schedules?
Well, I don’t know about you, but half the time I have trouble even finding time to say a small prayer when I am really busy with work or blogging, and I always feel bad about the lack of commitment that I have in God which encourages me to want to make God a priority in my life. Have you ever felt the same way–a way in which you would like to make God a priority, but you just don’t see how that is possible–here are some tips for you.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-38) We must always remember the commandments in all we do. We need to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. If we love God with all our heart then we will want to spend time with Him and give Him the best times of our day. Start the day committing it to God in prayer and asking for his help and guidance throughout the day.
You can post Bible Verses around your home for this we have to always keep a stack of index cards and a pen next to your Bible and whenever you come across a verse that really caches your attention, jot it down and hang it up somewhere. You can display these cards in places like the bathroom, on the fridge, on your mirror,over the stove, or above your bedside table. Every time you see the cards, it will prompt you to think about the verse and what it means for your life.
You can go for a walk or run and Pray. This way you get some uninterrupted time alone with God as you enjoy His beautiful creation and get your healthy workout. There is no better suited time than the time you spend in the admiration of nature.
You can invite God to share in your day. While having time set aside specifically for God and nothing else is nice, finding uninterrupted time isn’t always practical with today’s busy working life. Eventually you will get distracted by something that requires your attention; so instead of saving God for when you have uninterrupted time, invite Him to be a part of your everyday life. Talk with Him as you get drive to your meetings; listen for His voice as you do the dishes. God isn’t interested in just being involved in the highlights of your life; invite Him in to the entire thing, even the boring parts.
From Psalm 1:2, which says: “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night,” to Hebrews 12:2, which says “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith,” to 1 Thessalonians 5:17, which says “pray without ceasing,” the Bible makes it pretty clear that Jesus is supposed to be on our minds 24/7, all day and night.
Make time for God and to make Him a priority all week long.

CAN I STILL BE SEXY (VICTORIA’S SECRET MODEL) AND STILL BELIEVE IN GOD?

Technically there is no verse against being a model or being sexy. The bible says we are saved by faith and not by our actions. Nevertheless, in reality it is more complex than we think.
Jesus has called us to turn from our ways to follow him completely and to be transformed by him. If Abraham did notobey God’s Words and stayed in his comfort zone with his family, would he have experience so much abundance from God? If he could manage to love God with all his heart, read the word, know Him and still refused to leave his home, it would be an awe.
Romans 12:2 says: “Don’t copy the behaviour and customs to this world, but the God transform you into a few person by changing the way you think.” So being a part of an industry that encourages and thrives on lust is probably not what God would want for our lives; even if the model believes that it is up To her and God.
Often times associating with a particular industry can show that you endorse it. To put this in consideration, in all professions, Christians need to work out where their ethics lies; they need to evaluate if they can be actively serve God and work for their employer; or if their workplace undermines their faith.
Regardless of morality of the companies we work for God’s love will never change. For Christianity to have great impact in the world we need to infiltrate all industries as well as places that fit more with Christian morals. 
One great thing about being a Christian model and working in a commoner environment is that you can impact the place by your conversations, attitude and diligence and just loving the people you work with. But in order to follow Jesus and show the treasure, we need to be responsible about the places we put ourselves in and the things we do. If we are in places that lead us and others to sin then we are in the wrong place. For instance, posing in lingerie means someone else is going to look lustfully at the picture and in Matthew 5:28; Jesus specifically defines this as a sin. We need to guard our hearts and the hearts of others. 
The action of modelling lingerie itself is not an issue but it is the purpose, place and usage of that image. God would be all for it between a husband and wife, and not for the amusement of the whole world. 
At the end of the day there is a line that we need to pray and figure out where we as Christians stand. We should figure out how we can navigate the work place to give God the glory that he deserves; and to recognise that God is the ultimate boss and not our employers.

WHEN GOD MAKES YOU WAIT?

Have you been praying about a situation in your life and found yourself waiting for a breakthrough? Are you wondering why the answer hasn’t come yet? Do you feel as though victory is passing you by?

Sometimes when we pray long and hard about a situation in our life without receiving any answers, we just learn to live with it. We go on about our business, wondering if or when God will send the answer. But God does hear those prayers, and He’s working out the answers even though we may not know all the details. Our situation can change suddenly—quickly without warning!
God could have spoken to Moses in the desert about sending him to help free His people from slavery 40 days after he ran away from Egypt. Instead, He made him wait for 40 long years. God could have given Abraham the son He promised him when he was still a young man. Instead, He waited until he was 100 years old and because of physical reasons would have a more difficult time conceiving at that age.
God could have answered prayers and met the needs of these men much quicker, but He didn’t. He made them wait instead. And He often makes us do the same. He makes us wait for healing to come after we’ve been praying for years and there is no sign of recovery. He makes us wait to fulfil His call in our lives after He puts the desire and passion in our hearts to serve Him in a certain way. Maybe He is keeping you right where you’re at for the same reason He kept these men for so many years: to build your faith. To build your dependence on Him when you are barren and empty to see if He is truly all you desire and all you need. To build your trust in Him when the storm keeps raging, the battle keeps going and breakthrough and victory doesn’t seem near.
He makes us wait to give us the desires of our hearts, whether it’s a baby, a spouse, or a new job. He makes us wait for direction when we are stuck at a dead end and we don’t know where to go or what to do.
He could answer that same prayer that you’ve been praying for years every night in a millisecond. That same prayer that has been bringing you to tears. That same prayer that the longer that it goes unanswered, the more it makes you question whether He even hears.
If He is making you wait, there is a very good reason for it. If He is telling you “no” today, maybe it’s because He has a better “yes” waiting for you tomorrow. If He is keeping you in the same place you’ve always been today, maybe it’s because He’s helping build your faith before you enter your Promised Land tomorrow.
Wherever you are at today know that God is right beside you and that there is a purpose for you. Even if that purpose is to wait.
According to Joyce Meyer we should accept God’s Timing; “God gives us hopes and dreams for certain things to happen in our lives, but He doesn’t always allow us to see the exact timing of His plan. Although frustrating, not knowing the exact timing is often what keeps us in the program. There are times when we might give up if we knew how long it was going to take, but when we accept God’s timing, we can learn to live in hope and enjoy our lives while God is working on our problems. We know that God’s plan for our lives is good, and when we entrust ourselves to Him, we can experience total peace and happiness.”
“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” – Psalm 27:14

COME TO GOD IN PRAYER IN A MANNER OF HGH FAITH

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.” – Philippians 1:27

God’s word is like a treasure chest buried underground full of gold coins worth of billions of dollars; but instead of gold coins the bible offers something better; God’s promises. Sadly many Christians don’t know God’s promises. It’s like gives us a treasure chest full of gold coins, and we never open it to see what’s inside; we lack the faith to see these amazing fruits. 
Today, I am here to tell you that when we come to God in a manner of high faith we can discovery these promises, promises that will be able to lead a peaceful life and understand God’s calling in our lives.
God promises to satisfy us fully and forever in Jesus Christ.
We all long for heart-satisfaction. We all crave joy, pleasure, and beauty. And we can find some joy, pleasure, and beauty in things of the world. But none of these gives us full joy. Or lasting joy.
But God has good news. God promises that full and lasting joy is found in himself; in knowing him as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. That’s what David says in Psalm 16:11 (he’s speaking to God) –
“In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
We can also see this promise in verses like Psalm 36:7-9; Psalm 63:1-2; Psalm 73:25-26; John 6:35; Philippians 3:8; 1 Peter 1:8.
God promises to forgive us through faith in Christ so you can experience his heart-satisfying presence now and forever.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
We have all sinned and faced God’s punishment. But on the Cross, Jesus was punished in our place. So when we turn from whatever else we’ve been trusting to satisfy us, and trust Jesus Christ to forgive us, change us, and satisfy us in himself — everything changes:
God forgives all our sin — so we will never be punished by him (1John 1:9; Romans 8:1).
God covers us with Jesus’ perfect righteousness, and welcomes us as if we were perfectly righteous (2Corinthians 5:21). This complete forgiveness, and all of God’s promises, are ours by faith alone in Christ alone, as Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:8-9.
God promises to keep us strong in faith so we can experience his heart-satisfying presence forever.
This will ensure that we don’t turn from our faith in Christ because God promises that if we are truly trusting him now then he will never let you fall away. We won’t be sinless. But he will keep you persevering in faith until you enter heaven.
That’s what Paul says in Philippians 1:6 – “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Christ, God mercifully promises to reward our undeserving faith with even more heart-satisfaction in him now and forever.
So the more we trust and obey Christ now, the more joy we will have in Christ now, and forever. Here’s how Jesus puts this promise in John 14:21 – “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
But please don’t misunderstand this idea of reward. It’s not that we deserve rewards from God. It’s that – because of Jesus’ death on the Cross — God mercifully rewards our undeserving faith and obedience with more of himself.

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith” – Hebrews 13:7

GLORIFYING GOD, MAGNIFY GOD

I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69:30)
The whole duty of the Christians can be summed up as follows: we have to feel, think, and act in a way that will make God look as great as he really is. Be a telescope for the world of the infinite starry wealth of the glory of God. There is nothing and nobody superior to God. And so the calling of those who love God is to make his greatness begin to look as great as it really is.

This is what it means for a Christian to magnify God. But you can’t magnify what you haven’t seen or what you quickly forget. Therefore, our first task is to see and to remember the greatness and goodness of God. So we pray to God to, “Open the eyes of our hearts,” and we preach to our souls to not forget all his benefits. 
To “glorify” God means to give glory to Him. The word glory as related to God in the Old Testament bears with it the idea of greatness of splendour. In the New Testament, the word translated “glory” means “dignity, honour, praise and worship.” Putting the two together, we find that glorifying God means to acknowledge His greatness and give Him honour by praising and worshiping Him, primarily because He, and He alone, deserves to be praised, honoured and worshipped. God’s glory is the essence of His nature, and we give glory to Him by recognizing that essence. 
The offering we bring to God as we come before Him in the splendour or beauty of His holiness involves agreement, obedience, submission, and rehearsing His attributes or extolling Him. Glorifying God begins with agreeing with everything He says, especially about Himself. In Isaiah 42:5, God declares, “I am the Lord God. I created the heavens like an open tent above. I made the earth and everything that grows on it. I am the source of life for all who live on this earth, so listen to what I say.” Because of who He is, holy and perfect and true, His proclamations and statutes are holy and perfect and true (Psalm 19:7), and we glorify Him by listening to and agreeing with them. God’s Word, the Bible, is His Word to us, all that we need for life in Him. Listening to and agreeing with Him, though, will not glorify Him unless we also submit to Him and obey the commands contained in His Word. “But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts” (Psalm 103:17-18). Jesus reiterated the idea that glorifying and loving God are one and the same in John 14:15: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” 
Psalm 117:1-2; “Praise the LORD, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples! For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD!”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

How to celebrate your birthday with God
Father, thank You for seeing me through yet another yearand the opportunity to celebrate with You.
I would like to kick start my birthday with a bang and in style, well my own true personal style. Word is a have thing about birthdays. I see them as God’s gift to celebrate the people he has made each one of us to be and as an opportunity to take a moment and reflect on where we are in the process of fulfilling His purpose for our lives. 
It is a day when you are supposed to have a private joyous meeting with God; a day where you are supposed to spend some time out in the serene quiet place; either on to of a rock admiring nature or in a bench in the shade at a nearby park; with your bible and your notebook. Read your bible, reflect back, look forward, and talk to God and listen to Him when he provides you with the answers of where you are in your spiritual development process. Most importantly, end by writing a prayer filled with thanks giving and requests of future blessings; keep it your bible or journals so that you can be able to reflect back on it during the year. 
I believe that the purpose of our birthdays is to reflect and to keep track of what we have been assigned to achieve by God.
It is good to be thankful for what we have and what you have accomplished. But if we are to appreciate the fruits of life, we must first appreciate the tree that bears the fruit which is birth itself. Birth is your beginning. It is a window to the chance of a lifetime, the chance to fulfil our unique mission. So a birthday is a memorable occasion to always be commemorated.
You can also celebrate your birthday by committing to a special act of goodness. It is easy enough to say you are thankful; it is far better to show it by doing a kind deed, something that you did not do yesterday. Not because someone is forcing you. Not because someone suggests it. But simply because your inner goodness, your soul, wants to express its gratitude for being born and alive.
Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain…” 1 Chronicles 4:10.
