God’s word coming out of the mouth of the righteous is always in His wisdom. As a careful listener to the Lord, he is able to tap into godly wisdom, with a heart that is full of complete obedience to Him.

He guides his heart and his mouth away from pondering and speaking vain things. All his actions in obedience to God are geared towards doing only what the Lord says.

However just like every other person on the earth today, the righteous man has a past also. He had not always been righteous. He once used to be a sinner like everyone else. But his sins had been washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ.

As a result of this he is able to stand boldly before God, just as if he had never sinned before. God remembers his sins no more.

Now righteousness has been imputed to him. He is now a child of God. And because he is a child of God, he has access into the wisdom of God. The wisdom of the world has no part in him anymore. His life now belongs to God alone.

He now finds great delight in the future that is ahead of him in Christ Jesus. He delights only in obeying the Lord. He now lives the new life in Christ Jesus, without any consciousness of the sins that had been washed away.

The very hand that delivered him by washing away his past, is the same hand that has lifted him up. And it’s this very hand of God that gives him the strength, to be able to stand and do exploits for the Lord in His wisdom.

God is not ashamed to call him – “son”. What the enemy had meant for his destruction, has now been turned around by the Lord to bless him.

No matter how long his turn around in life may had been delayed, he now knows that God’s hand is upholding and keeping him stronger. The hand that gives him the strength to be able to stand, is the same hand that is protecting and keeping him away from evil.

You might have fallen so low to the bottom pit with life’s problems at this very moment, whilst thinking that there is no way for you, to ever be able to make it out of your situation. The good news for you is that God has not forgotten about you.

I have learnt from my own personal experience in life that, every success story in life begins with a crisis. So, if the crisis of life has brought you very low and you are feeling rejected by others around you, because of your love for Jesus. I want you to know that there is a rising up available for you.

God will lift you up. He will help you to turn your life’s crisis around into wonderful things to change your world.

If in fact every attempt that you have made to help yourself get out of the crisis and troubles of life has failed, to the extent that those attempts and failures has even added more pain to your shame. I want you to know for sure that the best part of your life’s story is about to begin.

You might had attempted to help yourself without the hand of the Lord, because dead religious teachings had taught you to believe that – “heaven helps those who do help themselves”.

But now you are beginning to realize that it’s not the truth. You are now beginning to acknowledge that except the Almighty God alone helps you, you would just have been wasting your time.

Until you begin to see the Lord as the only help that you have, the crisis around you will keep on getting worse.

Not only have you experienced self-degradation with complete disaster and failure by helping yourself; but men and the whole world around you have failed you also. Your life has now become so repulsive to your friends. They have all disappointed you.

That’s why I want you to know that being disappointed by all men qualifies you for God’s favor and help.

And maybe you are even thinking that nobody loves or cares about you. I however have good news for you. Jesus loves you and He really cares about you. He is stretching His hand out to you right now. Will you give Him a chance to turn your crisis into the blessing?

That’s the area of specialization of Jesus. He specializes in turning ashes into beauty. He will turn your disaster into glory. The story of your life is about to get started, the moment you allow Jesus to step into your situation.

You were created to bring glory to God and not shame. Can you see His hand stretched out to you right now?

The devil had thought that he has succeeded in preventing your light from shining. He had forgotten that God never created you for defeat.

Darkness cannot exist where the light of God is shining. The Lord has not left you alone or forsaken you. He will not allow the enemy to have the last word concerning you. He has never left anyone in trouble alone. His eyes have always been upon you.

He is stretching out His hand to you right now, saying:

“And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭51:16‬ ‭NKJV‬

The Lord is ready to lift you up and plant you on the solid Rock, which is Christ Jesus. Are you willing to give Him your hand for the lifting up?

Keep your dream alive!

Some have been so accustomed to crying and blaming everything, that is around them for their predicaments in life.

That’s why they can’t hear from God anymore. All they are seeing is everything that the enemy has planted around them, to hinder their faith from being productive. The devil has deceived them into forgetting that, they are involved in a spiritual warfare.

So, they continue to cry and murmur, while God’s hand is outstretched towards them. They are unable to see God’s hand stretched out to them, because they have been so busy murmuring and complaining to everyone.

However, their situation will persist as long as they are unable to see God’s hand at work. They are only seeing their troubles, instead of seeing the Lord at work in their particular situations. So, they are missing out of God’s wisdom that’s available to make them free.

You see Joseph (as the Bible told us) once had a dream. He had talked about his dream to his family. The scriptures say:

“Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more… Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.” So, he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind”.
Genesis 37:5;9-11 NKJV

Joseph had these dreams as a teenager, but instead of his own family members to be encouraging him to dream bigger, they were actually persecuting him for daring to dream.

In fact, his father had made him a garment of many colors. But Joseph knew within himself that his dream was bigger than that garment of many colors. His brothers went ahead to snatch the garment away from him, thinking that it was his dream of glory. They eventually sold him into slavery; hoping to kill and destroy his dream. But Joseph had kept on dreaming.

Joseph ended up in Egypt. He became a slave in Potiphar’s house (the captain of the royal guards). But he still kept his dream intact. He never allowed the enemy to take his attention away, from his dream about everyone in his family coming to bow before him. He was very young, but he was focused on this dream from God.

If the Lord God has given you a promise, He expects you to start dreaming big about it, because He is the El – Shaddai. He is your God who is more than enough for you, in every situation that confronts you in life.

In fact, Potiphar gave Joseph a new garment of glory over his house, to replace the garment of many colors which his brothers had taken away from him. But Potiphar’s wife also snatched away from him the new garment of glory. She finally got him confined in jail, for refusing to be tempted into sin (Genesis chapters 37 and 39).

As the Bible says:

“But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Look, my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he has committed all that he has to my hand. There is no one greater in this house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”
Genesis 39:8-9 NKJV

Joseph knew what sin in the flesh would have done to the dream from the Lord God inside him. He could not tolerate any appearance of evil in his life, which would have destroyed that dream.

He had gone through a lot as a young boy. He had lost his mother very early in life. He went through the anger and the persecution from his own relatives, who had hated him for his dreams. He now knew that only God’s hand can lift him up, to bless him in accordance with his dreams.

Joseph had his own relatives and even foreigners trying to kill his dream. But he never murmured or complained to anyone about what was being done. He kept the right attitude to protect his dream.

He was forgotten in jail by all men, including the friend whom he had helped in jail by interpreting his dream for him. But the Lord God who gave him the dreams never forgot about him.

The glory of men that were given to him to use, in substituting God’s glory for his dreams, were all taken away from him. Yet in the jailhouse the hand of the Lord was still resting upon him.

This young Hebrew man never stopped dreaming, even with all these predicaments of his life. He was a Prince, yet he was living like a slave because of the crisis and troubles of life. He knew that the God who gave him the dream, would eventually bring it to come to pass. So, he never allowed the time served in jail to steal his dream away from him.

And on the day when he never expected it, the same God who gave him those dreams, gave Pharaoh (the king of Egypt) dreams also. No one could interpret the dreams for Pharaoh. But his butler (Joseph’s friend in jail) remembered that Joseph knew something about dreams.

Joseph was brought from the jailhouse into the king’s palace, so as to interpret the king’s dreams for him. He was able to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams, because God’s wisdom was working in his life.

When God’s hand rests upon you, His wisdom will always flow from you to bless your world.

God’s wisdom had granted Joseph favor as a slave and as a prisoner. When you are walking in the wisdom of God, His grace will brighten your pathway into glory.

That was how Joseph finally ended up from the jailhouse to becoming the Prime Minister of Egypt in one day.

He never lobbied or campaigned for the position, as many in the world will often do today. Joseph never had any previous connection with the king of Egypt, but he was connected with the King of all kings. The Lord God who had the heart of the king in His hand (Proverbs 21:1), caused His favor to follow Joseph as he appeared before Pharaoh.

No matter for how long you may had been dreaming, do not allow people or your circumstances in life to kill that dream. Don’t allow what they are doing to hurt you to kill your dream.

Keep your dream alive, just as Joseph kept his dream alive, by not murmuring about the circumstances of his life. He walked in God’s wisdom, by allowing the Lord to work the process out for him.

That’s the pathway to real victory in Christ Jesus – when you leave your dream in God’s hand to fulfill it. One day your dream will come to pass, if you don’t ever stop dreaming.

So, it’s time for you to stop murmuring. Jesus was not manifested as the Son of God, for you to specialize in complaining and murmuring. He was manifested to testify about God’s glory in your life. He was manifested to destroy the works of the devil, which may be holding you down in bondage right now (1 John 3:8).

Jesus was manifested as the Son of God to keep your dream alive.

Turning things around by dreaming bigger.

Today there are many in churches who don’t really have Christ as the center of their lives. They want to love Him more, but the lust in them for the things of the world, has torn their hearts away from the love of Christ. Church attendance has become a routine for them.

They like to talk a lot about their church, but rarely do they talk about Jesus. They have substituted their love for Jesus with a desire for the lust of their flesh.

Many of them have dreams, but they are seeking to fulfill their dreams in the wisdom of this world, instead of the wisdom of God. Their dreams have become stale and unfruitful in certain cases, solely because they are not allowing the life of Christ, to keep those dreams alive within them.

These ones are often confused with regards to the doctrines of their denominations, because they have not been actively involved in the church.

Their spiritual life is not being impacted by God’s word, that is being taught and preached from the pulpit. They are always seeking to gratify the desires of their flesh in Church. And that is why they are struggling with spiritual growth with their dreams.

As an example, they may ask the Church to pray for them over and over again. But you will rarely see them sowing the seeds of prayer into other peoples’ lives.

Just as their dreams has become stale, their prayer life has become stale as well. They are never able to pray alone by themselves, for their own personal breakthroughs. Satan has gotten them into a corner with their dreams dying within them.

With all that they had been hearing and receiving from the pulpit, they ought to be the ones praying for others by now (Hebrews 5:12-14).

The confession of their mouth often easily exposes them (Luke 6:45). It’s often filled with the garbage from the world, instead of what is being declared from the pulpit. So, they can’t pray, because they don’t even know what they do believe anymore.

With the spiritual deposits from the pulpit into their lives, they ought to be helping others to get saved, to get healed and delivered. But on the contrary, it is not the case with them. Whenever they open the mouth, they can only talk about their problems, because that’s all they are seeing.

They are unable to allow their dreams to make room for them, because of the devil’s corner that they had been pushed into. Some have even killed their dreams.

God has His hand stretched out to them, but they keep holding on to their problems. There is remedy available for them, but it’s quickly eluding them.

They are more occupied with listening to the voice of sympathy about their problems. So, they are never able to tap into all that the Father has provided for them in Christ Jesus.

Compassion and sympathy are two different things. We are called to show compassion to people, but Christians need to be careful about showing sympathy, for those who are lazy with their faith. They don’t need it, but they do need the compassion of God working through us to help their faith.

When you are showing sympathy to a lazy man, he will exploit your generosity as weakness. And the moment he stops getting that sympathy from you, he will dump you and go after other Christians, who can be exploited by him as they show him sympathy for his problems.

A man who had been prayed for and had received healing, needs to be putting his faith to work, by going out to pray for others.

Sympathy does not heal the sick, but compassion always does. Jesus was always moved with compassion and not sympathy, to do everything that He did on the earth. He expects us to do the same in working miracles, signs and wonders on the earth.

A man who is being shown sympathy because of his sickness, will never be moved by faith to receive his miracle of healing. He needs compassion and not sympathy. Our compassion towards him will help him to activate his faith for healing. That’s how he is able to keep his miracle and stay healthy.

And if after being healed by the Lord, he does not use his testimony to make room for himself and his dream, the devil will steal that testimony away from him.

The spiritual gifts in the believer’s life that are not being attended to, will get the attention of the devil. If you’re not stirring up the spiritual gifts in your life, the devil will exploit your spiritual laziness to destroy you and your dream.

You need to let your gifts make room for you. You were saved to save others, healed to heal others and delivered to minister deliverance to others. You can definitely get more souls saved, more sick people healed and more of the oppressed delivered, as you put your faith to work with your personal testimonies to others.

These are the ways by which you can allow your gifts to make room for you, in bringing your dream to come to pass. You can surely turn your life around, no matter how far away from the Lord you are right now.

This is how you are able to stop murmuring and complaining – by giving glory to God. And the more you’re doing these things, the more you will become established in what you had received from the Lord.

Let your life be of service to others.

The Father has His hand already stretched out to you. Instead of murmuring you need to be rejoicing in what is coming your way.

God has not left you alone or forsaken you. Let Him hold your hand and get you out of the devil’s corner. Will you give the Lord the chance to get you out?

Being a Christian is beneficial to others around you (Psalms 103:1). You were saved to get others saved as well. You were healed to heal others around you. You were delivered to bring deliverance to others.

All these are the benefits that Christ has given to every Christian, and which we are all meant to be using in replenishing the earth with the blessing (Genesis 9:1).

Are you taking advantage of your benefits in Christ Jesus, by spreading them out as seeds to replenish the earth? Or is your Christian life unfruitful with those benefits?

Being a church member does not make you a Christian. Let the testimony of Jesus from your lips reveal Christ to your world. That’s what Christianity is all about.

Start doing something now!

Your financial and health situation may be so bad right now. Things may be biting you very hard. Your business may have gone down too. And to make it worse for you, there are no jobs around for you to do also.

You are now wondering why has the lot of the ungodly fallen on the righteous also? Yes, bad things do happen to good people also. The only difference is in the attitude of the righteous towards those things.


“Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
He guards all his bones.
Not one of them is broken”.

Psalm 34:19-20 NKJV

The Bible says that a righteous man will have many troubles in life, but none of those troubles will ever hurt him physically, even while the Lord is working out his deliverance for him. That’s a big difference between your troubles and the troubles of those who are not Christians.

You do carry the solution in your hands. You have the answer that the world is looking for on your fingertips. You have God’s wisdom, but you are struggling in allowing the Lord to work through you.

Your hands are meant for the miracles of God. If only you will let the Father’s hand lift you up, you will be amazed by what He will use you to do.

It’s your reaction as a child of God to the changes in your world, that separates you from bringing godly answer to the problems around you.

Attitude matters a lot. Your attitude to what is going on around you can either mold or redefine your destiny in life.

You do have the Christian hope that the world does not have. That’s why I want to let you know that God is in all of these with you. He is never late to deliver those who are loved by Him. He is always on time. He may not show up at your own set time, but He will show up at the perfect time.

That’s why you don’t need to be looking up to men or the world to help you. God has His hand on you right now. He is all the help that you do need.

And if you have God as your Helper, you do have everything that you do need. That’s why you don’t need to be seeing yourself, revolving around the same circles of life over and over again.

This is the moment when you need to stop complaining about things. Stop complaining about other people. They are not your problem. You are making yourself the problem by murmuring about others.

It’s time for you to start looking up to God alone for deliverance. He will pick you up and get you out of that situation. He alone can do what men cannot do for you.

He wants to use your hand to heal the sick, your mouth to speak salvation to the lost, while you’re bringing good health and deliverance to your world. So, stop murmuring and begin to look at what God’s hand is offering you.

You see every time when the devil brings troubles upon a Christian, so as to bring him down; God’s word will always come to that believer. He is then able to stand up and be lifted up.

Many cannot hear from God today, because they are too busy complaining to Him. Your complaints can never move God, but your faith in action on His promises will always do.

In the midst of every trouble of life God’s word has always carried His wisdom to deliver His people (Psalms 18:16-19).

But it’s still the responsibility of the believer in Christ to act on the basis of that word. This is where many Christians are missing it today, because they are not acting on the word of God with their mouth.

They do believe with their hearts, but it’s their inability to start acting by doing what the word of God says, that is making them linger in their faith walk.

The wisdom of God to you demands that you activate your faith with your mouth right now, so as to get your expected results.

So, go out and do something positive today to change your world. This is your season of increase. It is your moment of promotion from the Lord.

That’s why as the Lord spoke through David:

“The LORD has been mindful of us; He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel (His people); He will bless the house of Aaron (His priests). He will bless those who fear the LORD, Both small and great. May the LORD give you increase more and more, You and your children. May you be blessed by the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭115:12-15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Welcome to your increase more and more – faith by faith (Romans 1:17).

Then grace with more grace will bring you increase more and more. It’s coming to those who are great and small around you now. You are truly blessed.
