Too Much Noise!!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

We live in a noisy world, bombarded by the constant distraction from social media. Now add a busy social life into the mix and you have total chaos!….Like wearing multiple headphones!

How do we hear the Lord’s voice amidst this ‘noise of the flesh’?

When the Lord called Samuel he ran to Eli first because he mistook the divine call for the call of the flesh. (1 Samuel: 3) This is what most of us are doing now.

Have you received the the Lord’s call and didn’t hear it or worse still decided to ignore it?

The Lord will not compete with the noise around you. The call that will change your life may come in a ‘still small voice’.

Don’t wait until life’s circumstances cause you to slow down and seek the Lord by force!

…..Turn down the noise!

Redundant Angels

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people?

Do angels still exist? Ponder on this as you sip your hot morning coffee!

Several verses in the opening chapters of Hebrews relate to man and the angels. We all have differing views on the existence of angels but certainly the writer of Hebrews view is that they exist to do God’s will.

“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister to them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Heb 1:14

Just as the angels appeared to Abraham to tell him about the birth of Isaac, the angel appeared to Mary announcing her miraculous conception. In Acts 10 an angel appeared to Cornelius too!

Angels still exist, but when God sends them to us are we sensitive enough to hear their message?

Have we made the angels redundant?

The angel is about to blow the final trumpet!

…..Are we ready?

Happy Reflection.

What’s on the other side?

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Monday people!

We are in the last quarter of the year! For most of us this year has been quite a journey, but that’s a story for another day.

In Mark 4 Jesus charged his disciples to cross over with him to the other side. We have read that account umpteen times but we tend to focus on the storm that arose on route, just the same way we focus on the storms rocking our boats right now!

Jesus slept through the storm because He knew what awaited Him on the other side. Fast track to the next chapter and you will understand why the storm came. A great miracle took place! A demoniac with a legion of unclean spirits got his breakthrough! No wonder all hell broke lose on the way! ….The devil went crazy!

What’s rocking your boat?

Focus on what’s on the other side……It’s your breakthrough!

Happy September!

The Big Dark Place!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

Have you ever been rescued from a situation caused by your own disobedience or negligence?

Some years ago I climbed onto a floater in a massive swimming pool (by the way I can’t swim!) and not realising I had drifted to the deep end, I climbed off! It was like falling into a bottomless pit, luckily the lifeguard jumped in to rescue me.

That day I was convinced I was going to meet with my Maker!

Due to disobedience Jonah found himself in the belly of the fish. The fact that he was not chewed to pieces was pure evidence of the Lord’s mercy.

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.

(Lam 3:22)

Jonah cried out and the Lord caused the big fish to spit him unto the dry land!

Will you cry out from your own dark place today?

Cry!…..Your deliverance is near!

Good Morning

It’s Breaking Time!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

My post this morning is dedicated to those in the eye of a storm, when praise doesn’t seem like a viable option.

Praise is the most powerful weapon to use in the face of a storm. It breaks every cycle of defeat or discouragement

How do you raise your hands in praise with child in the grip of an addiction, or when your marriage is in trouble? How do you praise God with a bad medical report in your hand?

Paul and Silas raised an altar of praise in the midst of their chains, today we can choose to do the same.

(Acts 16)

Don’t hang your harps yet. You can still sing the Lord’s song in a strange land. (Ps 137)

Choose to break your chains with praise …..or your chains will break your praise!

It’s breaking time!

“Tick-Tock”…Goes the Clock!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

What has the Lord asked you to do that you keep putting off?

Over the weekend I stumbled on a rather touching and poignant account of the life and times of late Archbishop Benson Idahosa, a foremost Nigerian pentecostal preacher.

The late Archbishop had prepared for his death months before it happened. As a matter of fact he had told his wife that he had finished everything that God had asked him to do!

What a testimony! Surely this was a man that had lived ready and died empty.

Paul also said “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2Tim 4:7)

Will this also be our testimony? Or are we going to continue to live life as if we will be here for ever?

This morning kindly do a little introspection.

Remember! Time is precious….The clock is ticking!

Good morning.

All That Drama!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

Drama always makes the headlines. Won’t life be so boring without a little drama now and again ?

Our God also has a penchant for the dramatic. God likes an audience, I call Him the “show-off” God.

As if the burning bush and ten plagues were not dramatic enough, the parting of the Red Sea was a display of epic proportions, defying all logic and drowning Pharoah and his army in one fell swoop! It must have been headline news.

If God allowed shortcuts, we will take the credit for our achievements, so instead He takes us the long, hard and windy way so He can put up a show!

“But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart so that I may multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.”

-Exodus 7:3

Are you faced with a Red Sea situation? Get ready, the show has just begun!

Something is about to go down!…..We are watching!

Good Morning.
