There is a problem: church is no longer enjoyed, but endured, its not exciting but exasperating, its life sapping not life giving, real worship is hard to find. The one true way of normalizing this abnormalities is knowing Jesus Christ personally.
In the book of Genesis 12:7, God appeared to Abraham. The word “appear” is of the Hebrew word ‘raah’ which means ‘to see, look to be seen and to show oneself’. Right from Abraham’s days, God has always wanted to pally with mankind. He showed Himself to Abraham many times and appeared to a lot of people in the Old Testaments times, and even spoke to Noah, an impeccable man. In Genesis 18:17 God says ‘Shall I hide from Abraham [My friend and servant] what I am going to do’ . Amazingly we are made to understand that God shared His heart with Abraham, His friend. They were close to the extent that God could hid nothing from him. God wants to share his heart with all.
Psalm 145:18 [MSG] says that God is there listening to all who pray and mean it.
The book ONE ON ONE WITH GOD will tell you all you need to know about God s love and friendship .
‘Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved’. To call means to talk to God in prayers. The bible was not preferential on the class/kind of humans to call on God. It specifically says ‘whosoever’ meaning anyone, regardless of your age, sex, race, abilities and inabilities, ….ONE ON ONE WITH GOD.
The book Daniel 9:20-21 explains the Hebrew verb “Dabar”, which is same as “Sullaleo” in Greek. Sullaleo means to talk with or to converse. In the above Scripture, Daniel said ‘while I was speaking in prayers.’ Daniel did not just pray; he talked with God. It was not just the kind of prayer that most people pray where they do all the talking. This was something effective. This was a communication! He talked in prayer! He did not pray like a stranger, rather, it was a father and son interaction. He communed with God and God with him…. ONE ON ONE WITH GOD.
Isaiah 1:8 addressed so many issues, God called us to reason and converse together!
“Come now,” says Adonai, Let’s talk this over together. Even if your sins are like scarlet, they will be white as snow; even if they are red as crimson, they will be like wool.”- Isaiah 1:18-19 [CJB]
God invited sinful Israel, who thought that their sins were too grievous for the Almighty God to forgive. Indeed, their sins were grievous, they were liars, fornicators, drunkard, thieves, oppressors etc, they committed all manners of sin which played on their conscience, and they were guilty. Their guilt hindered them from God. Yet, God invited them for a conversation. ….. ONE ON ONE WITH GOD.
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the trinity. He is fully God. He is eternal, omniscient, and omnipresent. He has a will and can speak. He is a person, and He lives. He leads, helps, directs, comforts, counsels and guides. The Holy Spirit is like Jesus Christ… ONE ON ONE WITH GOD ..
.Whatever strength one is looking for, the Holy Spirit got it. Draining events occurs on a daily basis, things that wear one out. We all require strength to press on; physically mentally and spiritually. The good news is the Holy Spirit gives inner and outer strength. Whatsoever kind of activities you are engaged in, He will give strength. We are weak without the Spirit. The Bible says man will not prevail by his own strength…… ONE ON ONE WITH GOD
. God is waiting to receive you into His arms just like the prodigal son. God is not mad at you but mad about you….ONE ON ONE WITH GOD
The amazing thing about Christ’s righteousness is that it is free; this is why it is a gift! .
.ONE ON ONE WITH GOD .
It is impossible to focus on many things at a time. People that multi task most times don’t get the job done evenly. Sophisticated technologies have been developed to aid multitasking, yet they do not yield the desired result compared to single tasking…ONE ON ONE WITH GOD
I dined in the wondering home of confusion
History has washed his hands off my victory
They have always frowned at my crown
But today I smile, jubilate, dance to them broadcasting my butt.
Hahaha! I know it is only possible because I slept on the arms of focus
Focus has moulded my future
Distraction is frustrated and confused
I waved him off and now he bows to my feet.
When I was minding my business, distraction tried his best to befriend me
I slapped his teeth off and embraced his enemy ‘Focus’
It is never easy, for he came with many gifts, just to make me his friend
If you remain stiff you will get there, this I believe can be done only with discipline.
The more focused you are, the faster your steps and the greater strides you take….ONE ON THE WITH GOD
! Music can calm your nerves, your worries and past can be forgotten and your future can be focused on…. ONE ON ONE WITH GOD
Knock! Knock! Knock!
Even if you deeply snore in death, surely this knock is too loud to be ignored. Kpom! Kpom! Kpom! Louder knocks still heard at the door step of my heart. “Who knocks relentlessly…You? What do you want?!”
It is me, the Man of your forefathers, your God who ruled, still rules and will keep ruling. My dear, I need your heart, give me your attention, let us chat.
“What do you want?”
“Friendship! Fellowship! Companionship!”………. ONE ON ONE WITH GOD
This wonderful Book was
