Do you need …? Try God and His Righteousness

Hi,

I have decided to stop saying/typing happy new month, I have come to realize that I don’t get to publish something new till the middle of the month, so this is me just greeting you, with a breath of fresh air…..sighs.

Happy birthday to those July celebrants I didn’t have time to greet, happy birthday to wonderful August celebrants, so spiritually, I am merging perfection and new beginings, so happy PERFECT BEGINING.

There is a virus going about that reminds me of the plague that the people of Israel in the bible had, that Moses, directed by the Lord, told them to look up and get healed, the virus’ name (the one that reminds me of the Israelite’s plague) is Ebola; here are some facts that needs to be known and understood, to avoid further panic as well as to be informed:

  • Human to human transmission is only achieved by physical contact with a person who is acutely and gravely ill from the Ebola virus or their body fluids.
  • Transmission among humans is almost exclusively among caregiver family members or health care workers tending to the very ill.
  • The virus is easily killed by contact with soap, bleach, sunlight, or drying. A washing machine will kill the virus in clothing saturated with infected body fluids.
  • A person can incubate the virus without symptoms for 2-21 days, the average being 5-8 days before becoming ill. THEY ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS until they are acutely ill.
  • Only when ill does the viral load express itself first in the blood and then in other bodily fluids (to include vomit, feces, urine, breast milk, semen and sweat).

Please consider the following hygiene tips: 
  • Ensure the toilet is properly flushed when used and the toilet pan is clean
  •  Wash hands thoroughly to avoid spread of germs and infectious diseases
  • Remember to turn taps off when not in use
  • Wash hands thoroughly to avoid spread of germs and infectious diseases, frequent use of hand sanitizers is advised
  • Avoid unprotected intercourse.
  • Avoid  consumption of bush meat and contact  with wild animals
Remember: share the information and not the fear!
This month, i want to talk about something that cuts across everything, it stems from the bible, Matthew : 33 and 34 (as usual the message translations)

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
 

I have come to realize that we tend to get carried away with little things, we tend to get upset over things not worth getting upset over, we seem to be getting used to getting to our desired destination through long routes disguised as short-cuts. Sometimes I think, we Christians don’t patiently read the bible, Oh Yes! we skimp through the bible, sometimes we tell others how a particular scripture affects their lives, but do we live the scripture? When the Lord said “cast your burdens on me for i care”, did you believe? When you were broke and needed to settle some bills or needed funds to do some things, who was your first thought for help directed to, hills (men) or God? When you needed reassurance on who loves you, did you think to ask God or did you go ahead to read blogs on the signs to know (not that i am against blogs)?

Hebrews 4:2 has his to say: “For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did, but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.

When looking for all things, start at the begining, the bible wasn’t written just for writing sake….when the scripture says you should steep your life in God-reality, God-initiatives and God-provision and your daily needs would be met, my advice to you is please do. God knows what you need, he knows you need to get rid of some belly fat, he knows you want to build some houses and pay school fees, he knows that you want that pay check or that NEED so bad, the truth is, the solution has been embedded in the God-reality you are avoiding.

Real Knowledge, like everything else of value is not to be obtained easily, it must be worked for, studied for and more than all, must be prayed -Thomas Arnold
Ever wondered what help line works, it’s the prayer line, pray today, whatever the situation is, seek God first, in prayer and in righteousness, nothing better could be well prioritised. I recently practised putting God and His righteousness first, after loosing touch and getting frustrated with my lack of achieving my set goals, the peace that comes (to me as a holding response) is unrivaled, then the answers start coming, the urges starts dying and you are left wondering, “why didn’t i do this first and save time?”
Enjoy the rest of the month, hopefully see you in September, stay Healthy and keep putting God and His Righteousness First!!!
