Serving A living God

The oil city 😁😁 thank you for this snapchat video, actually I got this shot from the video she did. Did I enjoy my day? Oh yes I did, I was with my sister sister Kiky and I got gifts 💃💃, Kiky thank you so much for the ankara bag and the weekly planner and the ankara blouse and the gifts that Sejo gave you to bring to me....Thank you so much. The way God does is so mischievous and wonderful lol. When I got the other gift I was like wow! God I didn't really ask for it but I thought of it and now You Lord gave me on a platter of gold, I didn't even ask Sejo for it. Your ways ehhh Your ways Lord hahaha, I praise you everyday of my life, You love me, You protect me, You give me what I need, You are just so wonderful. You see that smile, I'm smiling for You God and I'm laughing in Your Glory. 
Allow yourselves to be sent by God to answer people's prayer so that when you do it they will say "God really sent you" and thank Him for it, remember all thanks are for God.
These days I've being growing in Your Love and letting You direct me and so far it has been wonderful and I already know that what You are doing for me, You will do more for everyone reading this.
Thank You Lord for today and I know that tomorrow will be better.Thank You for not making yesterday better than today all my life, that I can say "I have not had a better yesterday, my today is always better". Thank You for making me realize this fact that "God loves me no matter what".

Who are you to condemn?

Seriously who are you to condemn? When Jesus has not condemned?
In John 8:11 Jesus said I do not condemn you either. So you will not condemn people, even yeah I know Jesus does not condemn, He didn't condemn me when I was smoking, He didn't condemn me when I did not give my life to Him, God is not a condemner, He doesn't do you like "You Sammy, you are condemned for involving yourself in hard drugs" Ehhmmmm no He will never do it to you. It's just that the Holy Spirit convicts that you know what you are doing is a sin, when you get the conviction you repent, you truly say sorry to God.
They woman in John chapter 8 was an adultress, the people were ready to stone her to death and God said whoever is righteous throw the stone, lol, nobody threw any stone. So my message for you is "if you are so righteous, hey throw the stone" 
We are not perfect, nobody is perfect but we live in righteousness in God that makes us perfect in His eyes. So I don't judge people, instead I accept everybody because God loves everyone no matter what we do.
But you can see what Jesus said, “She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.””
John 8:11 NKJV
Go and sin no more, that's what Jesus said, He won't judge you but don't sin anymore.

What Is Your Purpose?

Because most of us have not just thought for a minute that they were created for a purpose, they live in a wrong way not knowing the right way. I'm recommending Mike Murdock's book 'The Assignment', Rick Warren's book 'The Purpose Driven Life' for you, ask God for the Holy Spirit for guidance to read the books and understand it, the book by Rick Warren takes 40 days to finish it, you absorb each chapter a day, and for those who don't do devotion, this book can be your devotion, remember this 'God First In Everything You Do'. When you read the two books, you gradually know how to find your purpose in life. You might be a doctor, a lawyer, a politician etc but that's not your purpose to be a doctor, a lawyer etc. Your purpose is bigger and hidden inside you, maybe your purpose is telling your patients about Jesus all day as you are treating them, maybe your purpose is to defend little children who have suffered sexual abuse and encourage them through Jesus as you are practicing law, maybe your purpose is to bring money for any church activities or organize them yourself as you are practicing as a Politician. They are different purposes in God's Kingdom. If you pray for your purpose and you get it, you will not be doing bad things like smoking, lesbianism, homosexuality, drinking to get drunk, adultery etc because you won't have time for it, because you become concerned of God's assignment in your life and fulfilling it before your death, because everyone will die already but you have to know how you live your life. You live your life in God's way or you live it in mammon's way, this choice is yours.
These books are neccessary if you want to know your purpose in life even if you are successful in your business but something is missing, it's Jesus. I will give you names of books I want you to read as the time goes and remember God loves you no matter what.

Jesus, Moses and the Isrealites

It so funny how Jesus was compared to Moses and the Isrealites, like He was literally there. David Ogbueli a man of God that I met (not literally met, i met him through his audio messages) through my two new friends Ejiro and Barry, I think I can call my best friends now because they are sent to me to God, sometime I will tell you about how I connected the dots to meeting them, I will remember to tell you.
So back to David Ogbueli's sermon about Jesus and Moses and the Isrealites. The first one in Exodus “And the people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and said, “Why is it you have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?” So Moses cried out to the LORD, saying, “What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me!” And the LORD said to Moses, “Go on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel. Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go. Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall STRIKE the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.”
Exodus 17:3-6 NKJV
The "STRIKE" is my emphasis.
And again the Isrealites complained and Moses told God about it again, it's recorded in Numbers 
“And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place? It is not a place of grain or figs or vines or pomegranates; nor is there any water to drink.” So Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and they fell on their faces. And the glory of the LORD appeared to them.

“Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. SPEAK to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.” So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him.”
Numbers 20:5-6, 8-9 NKJV

But they did not speak to the rock, they struck it again and they got punished for that;

“And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.””
Numbers 20:10-12 NKJV

So what does Jesus have to do with all these things?
 The Lord said strike Jesus the first time, so that He will die and pour out the water of life wow!! I really don't know how the men of God finds books of old testament and compare it to Jesus, and tell the congregation, because I did not know about this connection.
The second time He said SPEAK to the rock because Jesus had already died for our sins so they don't have to strike Him again, from my perspective when they struck Jesus again, He was supposed to be angry but He forgave them thus the water again. Just like we do these days, we offend Jesus again and again but He still loves us still. Do you think it's a coincidence that God said “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.””
I think not, if you don't believe God and His Son, i'm sorry you will not go into the land He has prepared for us. If you don't accept the rock but you strike it again and again,hey the rock will forgive you and will always forgive you until the day you leave the earth or rapture takes place. 
Living for Jesus is simple, as you receive Him you find yourself living for Him, nothing matters except Him, no cars, no houses just Him because He said find righteousness and all other things will come after. For those that are scared of going into the House of The Lord, there is nothing to be scared of for God loves you no matter what.

How you trust yourself too much

This story is from the book of Luke 10-11-14, a story of a pharisee and a tax collector, where the pharisee was bragging in his prayers that he thank God he is not like the tax collector who sins, he actually said how many times he fast and how he pay his tithes, are you serious Mr Pharisee? He was not talking to God, he was talking to himself, because won't have that kind if behaviour. Many people do it till now, they compare people to them, I even once compared myself to someone forgetting that I can go back to sin if the Lord wills it as punishment. We have to watch the words we say in prayer and off prayer, we have to audit it and pray as Jesus instructed us. 
The prayer of the tax collector; 
“But the tax collector, standing at a distance, would not even raise his eyes toward heaven, but was striking his chest [in humility and repentance], saying, ‘God, be merciful and gracious to me, the [especially wicked] sinner [that I am]!’”
LUKE 18:13 AMP

The tax collector could not raise his eyes towards heaven, he was crying that God forgives him from all his wicked adversities. You know what, God forgave him, He sent His lamb to wash the tax collector with His blood. We should pray everytime like the tax collector not like the pharisee, we should ask the Father forgive our sins everyday, we all sin everyday unknowingly or knowingly so we have to ask God for forgiveness. Let us look at the pharisee's prayer: “The Pharisee stood [ostentatiously] and began praying to himself [in a self-righteous way, saying]: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men--swindlers, unjust (dishonest), adulterers--or even like this tax collector. ~‘I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’”
LUKE 18:11-12 AMP
Lol...I'm laughing now at his foolish prayet, do you think the Lord is so jobless that He answers that prayer?
He will take time to answer the right prayers.
So i'm telling you to stop comparing you with people who try to serve the Lord, who know they might be the biggest people in God's kingdom. God loves you no matter what but be sure you don't compare yourself with persons.

Dear Blog

I'm writing to you to thank you for being my platform to share my life in Christ. Everything from 2nd of June 2015 is in you my blog, telling others about my life, telling them that no matter how hard life is, you can still be happy, no matter what you are going through you can still be happy as far as you have Jesus in your life. I can't even believe how much my life has changed, in a good way, now I love Faith Tv, I love my bible I read it every morning to get clarity in what God has promised me, I never knew that I will be the one writing for Christ in this blog, instagram, twitter and so on. I'm not sure my friends know me in this state lol, all I can say is God is good. I can't believe He washed my sins with His precious blood, He told me everything that will happen to me is going to be for my good. I lost friends but it's okay because I made friends. Friends that are wonderful, friends that come to give me messages from Great Pastors, what can I say because these messages are important to my destiny, my future, my purpose. Oh dear blog you don't know how much I appreciate the new friends God gave me in the last days of 2016. And I'm writing my own book, can you believe it? Me too I can't believe it, a book that will encourage young people, when I finish and edit it, I already know that God will put in place for the publishing company that will publish it. I already know that God will pay for it not me. Oh i'm so happy dear blog, i'm happy with what God has done in my life. I can't wait to celebrate the 2 years anniversary with you dear Blog, in June 2nd 2017 you will be 2years. Glory Glory Glory to the Lord. Thank you for being my platform once again.

From Ena/Deborah
Your Writer lol.

The Broken

I was broken and wounded, my childhood to my teen years to my young adult life, I'm still a young adult but the difference is I have Jesus in me, He loves me and I love Him too. Could it be that He used my pain as a message? Yes I think so. Anticipate my book because it's about my pain before I gave my life Christ and what happened after that. God allows certain things in our life, and it gives you pain, don't just stay there in pains, and it is your fault if you decide to stay. Grow up and talk about the pain as a message, check out the life purpose God has for you and your life will not be difficult anymore, it will be easy peasy. I noticed when I gave my life to Jesus, my sadness went away from my life and I was happy after then so happy. And He called me as a world changer, through my pains. There are so many pains that I want to share but I'm leaving it for the book, afterwards I can use it as example. Holy Spirit loves you Oh Broken one, He allowed the pain to make you and please don't stay there at all, whether your mom died, your dad died, you are so sick, you are so hurt because your finance called off your wedding(hey it means you and the person are not supposed to be together), your spouse is asking for a divorce, you are abandoned by your spouse and you have children, your children are misbehaving, you are so alone that you even develop a bad habit etc I could go on and on, please don't live there in the pain but use it as a message, you are the world changers and you know what? God loves you no matter what.
