WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
During tough situations or tough times, its often easy for people to give up, especially when things looks impossible. But i say, dont give up! You are not ordinary; u are born of God, you have the life of God in you & the greater one lives inside u (1John 4:4). He will make a way where seems to be no way; He works in ways we cannot see . All u have to do is to trust Him to get u through on whatever the situation u are facing. God never fail, He guides & protect His own. He is our shepherd, He will lead us to green pastures & anoint our head with oil in the presence of our enemies. If one door closes, He opens another. Know this, we serve a supernatural God. He makes the impossible, possible. There is no limit to what you can do when you are in Christ, just do what uyoubelieve as a believer & God will do the rest.

OUR OBEDIENCE IS EVIDENT TO ALL :
ROMANS 16:19(KJV)For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.Our obedience to the gospel of Christ by accepting Jesus Christ as our sole Lord, is a full prove that we are full of obedience for the Lord; the obedient children of God. Once the Lord communicates His desire or will to us, we just obey because our spirits is always in agreement with His Spirit. We are set to always please the Lord, because we have an obedient nature. As saints, we don't have conflicts within when the word of God comes to us, we just do as He says. Paul in Ephesians 2:2 refers to unregenerated men as the children of disobedience. Disobedience is only associated with the people of the world who haven't responded to the love of God, and evidently we are not of the world because we obeyed God's word in faith and are now His obedient children. In our living as obedient saints, we do good works, because it is a fruit of our nature. The wisdom at work in us only functions in the realm of righteousness and can never be associated with evil. This is what our Heavenly Father expects of us, and that's exactly how we live here on earth. Our living is a full prove to all men that we are totally obedient to our Lord Jesus. As obedient saints, the Father is always pleased with us, because we always obey and satisfy His heart. Our ultimate goal is always to see the heart of the Father satisfied.Hallelujah! DECLARATION:I am the obedient child of God. I always satisfy the Father's heart as I do His will. I am not associated with disobedience because the Holy Spirit in me has taught me so things for my living. Glory to the Lord God Jesus.A lot of these so called Christians are hypocrites ,yes that's true but can we all read this,thank you .A lady went to her and said. I won't be attending Church anymore.He said, may I ask why? She said, I see people on their cell phones during service, some are gossiping, some just ain't living right, they are all just hypocrites. The Pastor got silent, and he said, OK... But can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision? She said, what's that? she asked He said, take a glass of water and walk around the Church 2 times and don't let any water pour out of the glass.She said, yes I can do that. She came back and said it's done. He asked her these questions: 1. Did you see anybody on their phone? 2. Did you see anybody gossiping? She replied See, I didn't see anything because I was too focused on this glass, so the water wouldn't fall or pour. He told her, when you come to Church , you should be like that  just stay focused on God , so that YOU don't fall. THAT'S WHY JESUS SAID "FOLLOW ME,"He did not say follow Christians.
