It’s day 10!
Yay! 20 more to go. Not doing so badly with this daily blogging. Hmmm….honestly thought I would have given up by now seeing as it’s the end of the year and it seems like there’s so much to round up on or to plan in readiness for 2015
Anyway had a great time reading all the responses on dilemma Tuesday post. Even the lady in question got a chance to see it from other people’s perspectives. So thanks guys you’ve been a great help. Winners will be announced. Let’s just say I’m glad I’m not one of the judges. It’ll be so hard to just pick three comments from all the seriously good or hilariously good comments.
So what is on the burner tonight?
I will tell you. Today was midweek service and boy! What a service. However I’m not about to run the whole service. You can always order the CD. My Pk taught on divine health. You will never be sick another day in your life if you can catch this. Tonight though I have something a bit different to serve you 🙂
Have you ever spoken to someone about something really important. Maybe about some problem that needed solving and before you even finished their response was “Eyah! God will do it” or have you ever shared some challenge that you know someone in going through with someone you know is able to do something about it and the person answers you with an “Ehen? God will do it for them in Jesus name”
I have, and each time it happens it just rubs me wrong. In fact it is fast becoming a pet peeve for me. Don’t get me wrong I’m not in any way insinuating that we should become God in the lives of people. Far from it! I know for a fact that in the wise words of Rev Sam Adeyemi that “If you think you are the El-Shaddai, you shall die. 🙂 But I think that statement God will do it has made lazy Christians of us all. We have become a lot like our predecessors the twelve disciples.
Jesus had an amazing crusade and 5000 men minus women and children were in attendance. After such a powerful crusade
15. In the evening the disciples came to him and said, “It is already past time for supper, and there is nothing to eat here in the desert; send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy some food.”
16 But Jesus replied, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them!”
17 “What!” they exclaimed. “We have exactly five small loaves of bread and two fish!”
18 “Bring them here,” he said.
19 Then he told the people to sit down on the grass; and he took the five loaves and two fish, looked up into the sky, and asked God’s blessing on the meal, then broke the loaves apart and gave them to the disciples to place before the people.
20 And everyone ate until full! And when the scraps were picked up afterwards, there were twelve basketfuls left over!
21 (About five thousand men were in the crowd that day, besides all the women and children.) – Matthew 14:15-21
They were ready to leave the people to go away hungry and say “God will do it” but Jesus showed us something in that scripture. Sweetheart God will not do it! The same way you are waiting on God to solve the problem, God is saying I’m also waiting on you. Jesus said to them if you see a problem, then take responsibility and be the solution.
We need to get to the point where we realise that God has done everything he’s ever going to do. When Jesus said, “IT IS FINISHED!”
he actually meant he had done everything HE needed to do. From now on the rest is up to us.
Why am I saying this? I think one of our greatest assignments as Christians is to do what Jesus would do. Christmas is just around the corner. I love Christmas. It’s one of my favourite holidays but I also realise that for some people It’s just another day. Nothing special. Because like Jesus’ crowd they hunger. I’m not about to make the same mistake that bros peter and Co made. I’m going to do what Jesus said and give them something to eat.
So this is the plan. I’m heading a project called CHRISTMAS A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER And my goal is to make Christmas better for a thousand families. Nope it’s not just another benevolence project that people do to take pictures and print magazines. I’m doing this in obedience to Matthew 25:35-40
Jesus said if I do this for anyone, I’m doing it for Him. In other words, He can’t do it physically so I’m becoming his hands.
We are making hampers….everyone loves hampers right? ……hampers that contain things that can be used to make food for a family to eat and ensure they have a good Christmas
Each hamper will contain
…..and any other thing we can squeeze in.
Each hamper that will feed a family costs just N2000. Insignificant money abi? I know how much you spend to fix that Peruvian hair. So guys I’m asking you to join me. Let’s bring in our five loaves and two fish
. And let’s watch Jesus multiply it
but one thing I’m definitely not doing this year is sitting around praying for God to feed the poor when like Jesus said I can give them something to eat.
So who’s with me?

You’ll be surprised how far your little will go
Bottom line: GOD WILL NOT DO IT! IF IT’S TO BE THEN IT’S UP TO ME.
Good night guys.
