halftruth

The first sin of the first man and woman on earth was not the disobedience of eating the fruit. As much as the entire world likes to blame the woman for making the man to eat of the tree which God had instructed them not to, that was not the first sin she committed! That’s not what caused us to be taken out of the Garden in Eden.

The first sin that was committed was doubt… and just as it was to then, it still is now. Satan never approaches us with fornication right there, there are always preambles and enticers he places here and there.

Genesis 3:4-5
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The serpent offered the woman was a chance to be ‘as gods’ (Gen 3)… what she didn’t know is that God had already made her a god!
The devil offered a semblance of what God had already given her! The devil’s biggest weapon is half truths and not even lies! He blows at your faith! He causes us to question the words of God by quoting them and trying to discredit parts of it – “did God really say stealing is a sin? It must just depend on who you’re telling the lie or on your reasons for lying”…
He didn’t just go to the woman and declare that God was wrong about the tree but tried to steal her reverence for God by discrediting what he said about the tree… (God just doesn’t want you to be as He is…)

This week, you need to make a conscious decision to not be swayed or distracted by the devil’s half truths. You must hold fast to what God has promised and instructed you! I’m convinced that your faith, trust and expectations would not be cut short!

Have a blessed week!

Morning Motivation

Taking a detour off The NYSC Chronicles (TNC) for a bit even though this post still holds things that became more real to me since I began this journey….

Regardless, Enjoy!

Psalms 46:10a

“Be still, and know that I am God…”

 

I have learnt that our being still should not be as a result of our knowledge! No! The simple instruction God gave was “be still… And know!”. It is no mistake that He didn’t say, “When you know, then be still”. In fact, most times, the things we think we know are jokes!

To God, faith is extremely important. Take a brief look at the Life of Abraham, a man fondly referred to as the father of Faith. His story is one that every Sunday school child knows all too well. Abraham and his wife (Sarah) had a child in their old age.

An aspect no one really looks into is what Abraham ‘did’ to deserve such an honor… We know that there is nothing we have that God wants, I mean, He is God- he has it all. So it is extremely accurate to say that there is nothing Abraham could have had that God would have wanted!

However, because of his FAITH in God, God declared him righteous (Gen 15:6). Abraham persevered to the end. Read your Bible, you’ll see in Chapter 12 of Genesis that God called Abraham out from his family and kindred and asked him to go to no specific place and immediately after giving him instructions and promises, Abraham faced a famine like no other that took him to Egypt. This is the point many of us would have packed our things and headed back to our father’s house and to be honest, no one would have judged Abraham if he did that but he remained faithful! Full of Faith! Calm in the storm!

The way I see it, ‘Be still and know” is God’s way of bragging… like ‘just sit and watch Me deal with that barrenness/solve that situation/cure that illness/heal that broken heart….’ Whatever the situation, there’s nothing you need to do! Just sit and watch your daddy handle it. BE STILL AND WATCH HIM BE GOD!

Hang in there guys! And Have A Blessed Day!
