God’s Insurance Program in Crisis Times: 20 Things To Do To Stay Above The Negative Tide

Job 5:19-23; Psalm 91:1-15

  1. Spend time in prayer: Speaking in other tongues energizes and strengthens your inward man. A strong spirit keeps the body in perpetual health. When you speak in tongues, the Life of God in your spirit is activated. It then flows into your body to energize it with Divine Life. Speaking in tongues for a long time is one of the keys to developing a strong and robust spirit. See Proverbs 18:14 NKJV, AMPC; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 14:4; Ephesians 3:16; Jude 20. Speaking in tongues for a long time tames your tongue. It sanctifies your tongue. You will find yourself speaking the right words. See Job 6:30; 2 Samuel 23:2; 1 Corinthians 14:13-15. Speaking in tongues can help you relax. It releases rest and refreshing into your spirit, soul and body. See Isaiah 28:11-12; 1 Corinthians 14:21. When speaking in tongues you are praying the perfect will of God. See 1 Corinthians 14:2; Romans 8:26-27. Speaking in tongues emboldens you. See Jude 20; 1 Corinthians 14:4.
  2. Give quality time to the reading, studying and meditation on God’s Word. The Word of God is life. As you spend time in the Word, you are saturating your spirit, soul and body with Life thereby boosting your health. See Psalm 107:20; Proverbs 4:20-22; John 6:63; 3 John 2-
  3. Speak the Word of God over your life everyday. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Speak life over you and your loved ones by speaking what the Word of God says. The words we speak impact our lives and creates our circumstances. Our words define the character of our lives. Speak the Word only. See Job 13:19; 15:5-6; 27:3-4; 33:1-5; Psalm 34:13; 37:30; 39:1-4; Proverbs 12:18; 13:2-3; 15:4; 18:7; 18:20-21; Matthew 12:33-37
  4. Praise: Praise and worship is vital in these times because as you praise and worship God, it refreshes your spirit and invigorates your body with new life. Praise releases blessings and the blessing of God is life. Health is part of the blessing. Praise and worship releases the Presence and Power of God that keeps sickness and disease away from you. See Psalm 9:1-3; 2 Chronicles 20:22-30; Psalm 42:11; 133:3; Acts 10:38.
  5. Feed your faith: You feed your faith by listening to the Word again and again. Feed your spirit with rich, positive, spiritual content rooted in the Word. See Romans 10:17; Luke 5:15; 6:17. Faith is a confident expectation of positive outcomes based on the Word of God. Whatever you focus on, you amplify in your life. Focus on faith building content. You attract what you believe. See Matthew 8:13; 9:27-29; 21:21-22.
  6. Starve your fears: Avoid listening to or seeing things that stirs up fears in your heart. Fear is confident expectation of evil. Fear is anticipating negative outcomes based on your current circumstances or negative feedback. You attract what you fear. Fear is rooted in negative beliefs or a negative belief system. Choose to be God conscious. Focus on the promises of God and drown your fears in the river of faith. See Job 3:25-26 KJV; 2 Chronicles 32:1-23; Isaiah 41:10; Mark 5:36
  7. Contemplate on God’s Love for you. Good things happen to those who believe that God loves them. Good things come to those who believe that God loves them unconditionally and consistently. Faith in God’s love emboldens you and quenches fear. It is important to be mindful of how much God the Father loves you. Knowing the Father’s love fills your heart with joy and hope. It gives you a great sense of peace. You are the apple of His eyes, His prized possession and His focused affection. See Psalm 17:8; Jeremiah 31:3; Zechariah 2:8; John 3;16-17; Romans 8:31-37; Ephesians 1:6; 1 John 4:16-18; 3 John 2.
  8. Maintain a joyful spirit and attitude. Depression is deadly. It has been said that one minute of depression can suppress your immune system for six hours. This is not a time to keep bitterness. This is a time to let go and forgive. Forgiveness and joy goes together. Speak in tongues until you are overwhelmed with the joy of the Lord. Make a list of those who have hurt you and forgive them one by one and you will experience an outburst of joy like you have never known before. See positive funny content. Share funny memories with family and friends. Sometimes laugh intentionally to boost your immune system. Laughter oxygenates your blood. Proverbs 12:25; 13:12; 15:13; 17:22; Nehemiah 8:10; Romans 14:17
  9. Practice the Love of God. The Love of God is called agape (agapao). It is the unconditional disposition of goodwill to the undeserving. See Matthew 5:43-44. Agape Love is the unconditional commitment to the wellbeing of another. See John 13:34-35. Walking in love towards others is one of the ways to enjoying hundred percent divine protection. Keep yourself in the Love of God. See Romans 13:8-10; Jude 1:21; 1 John 5:18; 4:16-20
  10. Sow seeds of encouragement. Be generous. What we give out comes back to us many times over. See Luke 6:37-38. Send out encouraging messages to others. Cheer somebody. Make somebody else happy. Focus on bringing joy to others. Every time we do good for others we feel good. It releases endorphins, dopamine and oxytocin. It improves your mood and lowers your blood pressure. It can boost our immune system and help you live longer. See Psalm 41:1-3; Proverbs 11:24-25; Acts 9:36-42; 2 Corinthians 8:1-4: 9:7

Preserving the Faith of the Fathers For Future Generations 

Habitual Thanksgiving

Dearly Beloved,

Greetings of Grace and Peace from the heart of God the Father in the Name of Jesus Christ by whom we have access to the riches of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

God has brought us this far by His grace and His mercies. Without God’s blessings and His favor none of us can experience true progress. Please learn to give God the credit for every little progress you experience. That is the way of humility. Proud people are never grateful. They never acknowledge God as the source of all good things that comes into their lives.

James 1:17 KJV
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

This means God only gives good things. He never gives bad things. God is good. He is full of goodness. There’s no badness in God. Everything that God does is to make us better and it’s all good. He never gives evil. The devil is the author of all evil. God is the source of true goodness.

John 3:27 KJV
John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

Accredit all good things as coming down from the Lord. Give Him thanks. Testify about it. Tell everyone that it is the Lord that did. Don’t arrogate to yourself the glory and the credit that God deserves. That will slow you down.

1 Corinthians 4:7 KJV
For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

Everything we have become, done or have today are the results of God’s investments in our lives. God is calling us to a life of humility. Be careful to give God the glory for every blessing, progress or breakthrough you experience.

God amplifies or increases whatever we are grateful for. Whatever we complain about becomes worse. Whatever we learn to appreciate becomes bigger, better and sweeter.

One thing that will help you maximize the blessings and benefits that this season brings is to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Gratitude activates the power of God. The atmosphere of gratitude is the environment of supernatural multiplication.

It was an atmosphere of praise and thanksgiving that released the glory of the Lord during the dedication of the temple. It was also praise and gratitude that also led to the miraculous deliverance that Jehoshaphat and the children of Israel experienced in the Old Testament.

Thanksgiving creates the atmosphere for uncommon miracles. Bread and fish multiplied in the New Testament when Jesus gave thanks for the little boy’s lunch He was given. Little becomes much when we are grateful to God. Jesus raised Lazarus in an attitude of thanksgiving.

We have entered a season of unusual miracles. We are in a season of God sized miracles: Deeds that will make people wonder about God’s involvement in your life. God seeks to show up on your behalf in a BIGGER way. He wants to show off His Power, Provision and His goodness on your behalf. All this can only happen when we maintain an attitude of gratitude to create an atmosphere for God to do things that are exceeding abundantly above all that you ask or think. Selah

The Power of thanksgiving

Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have gained access to the inner counsels of the Lord through the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Today I want to continue our discussion on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the heartfelt expression of gratitude and appreciation to God for what He has done, what He is doing or what you expect Him to do.

The attitude of gratitude is one of the habits that when mastered can make your life a continuous journey of blessings and increase. Complaining is the opposite of gratitude. Those who complain remain stuck in the past and never make meaningful progress. But those who maintain the attitude of gratitude soar to higher altitudes of greater accomplishments and uncommon achievements. See John 6:5-13; 11:38-44.

This was obvious in the life of Jesus Christ our Lord. He was always grateful. He gave thanks for five loaves and two fishes. When we always find something to be grateful for, it gives us a positive outlook on life. Gratitude fuels positivity. It affects your confession and your outlook on life. But complaining does the opposite. The more you complain, the worse life becomes. In fact, if you look at Numbers 21:4-9, you will notice that bitterness and complaining opens the door to the devil. Complaining licenses the devil to oppress you.

Complaining can lead to an early grave. It can result in a loss of heritage or opportunities. The children of Israel did not get into their inheritance because of negative confession and a negative mindset. The more you talk about a problem, the bigger it gets in your mind and it becomes an obsession. But if you focus on thanking God for the little good you see around you, the more good you will see. Thanksgiving clarifies the mind and refines the imagination.

Stop complaining. Please take out a piece of paper or a note to write down the good things you can see in your life or notice in your environment that you can be grateful for. Developing an attitude of gratitude will deliver you from negativity. Thanksgiving is a multiplier. It will make your life better. It will make your marriage better. Cultivate the attitude of gratitude and your life will be more fruitful and fulfilling. Selah

P. S.
Please read the following scriptures:
Psalm 107; 115; 136; 145.

How To Prosper in Difficult Times

Genesis 26:1-5; 12-14

  1. Surrender to God as Your Source. God is the Source of everything you have, you need or will ever need. In Him all things consist. See Colossians 1:16-17; John 3:27; Psalm 27:1-5; 127:1-2; Jeremiah 17:5-8; Matthew 6:24-33; Deuteronomy 8:17-18
  2. Submit Yourself to be a Steward of God’s resources. See 1 Corinthians 4:7; 1 Peter 4:10 NASB; John 3:27; 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
  3. See Money as a tool. See money as tool to use, invest or bless others. Use it to advance the interests and the causes of the kingdom of God. See Luke 6:38; Matthew 6:19-24; 2 Corinthians 8:1-12; 9:6-14
  4. Search the Scriptures for the Promises of Your Provision: See Hosea 4:6; Acts 20:32; Luke 12:32; Job 5:19-23; Psalm 33:18-20; 37:18-19; Philippians 4:19
  5. Speak the Promises of God over your situation. See Hebrews 13:5-6;
  6. Seek God for a Now Word about your situation. See Genesis 26:1-5; 2 Chronicles 20:1-17; 2 Kings 6:25-7:20
  7. Schedule time to Praise God. See Psalm 67:5-7; 2 Chronicles 20:1-30; Habakkuk 3:17-19; Psalm 69:29-36

God is too Faithful to Fail. See 1 Kings 8:24,56; 1 Thessalonians 5:24

The Pursuit of Greatness

Within every man or woman is the desire to be somebody special or significant. It is innate. We are all born with it. God created us for significance. That’s why we want to be first in class, do well on the job and deliver on the projects to which we are assigned.

Nobody was born to be failure. God’s plan for you is to make something beautiful out of your life. He has good plans for you. Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth.” He also said, “You are the light of the world.” That’s a grandiose vision. He gives them a global vision. See 1 John 4:4; 5:4; Romans 8:37; Matthew 5:14-16; Jeremiah 29:11 NIV, AMPC

However, we need to understand that salt does not exist for itself. Salt serves a purpose. Salt makes our food taste better. Salt preserves from decay or corruption. The Lord is saying to us that as we consistently serve humanity according to our divine purpose we gain influence with men.

As lights, we guide, we dispel darkness, we show the way, we expose what is hidden. Light has relevance when it serves its purpose. If you will serve with excellence as you carry out your purpose, you will find your influence growing and your impact increasing. Selah (See Matthew 4:23-25; 9:35-36; Acts 6:1-7)

Greatness is inside of You. Greatness is always a reward for service

Greatness is always a reward for service. I mean selfless and self sacrificing service. When we focus on making people better and upgrading their lives, we are on the road to timeless significance and enduring influence. When people know that we have their best interests at heart, they trust us, commit to us and follow us with unreserved loyalty. Focus on leaving everyone better than the way you find them. Be a value adder, in other words, add value to people wherever you find them.

The commitment to serve with the intention to make others better, uplift the downtrodden and empower the weak is what makes people like Mother Theresa unforgettable. She rose to fame and influence by serving the poorest of the poor with great love. She left her comfort zone to go to people of another culture to improve their wellbeing.

Every time you lift somebody, your platform is raised higher and your influence is enlarged to help more people. Every time you help someone less fortunate than you are, you are also enriched and improved because the seeds we sow come back into our lives many times over. See Proverbs 11:24-25 NLT, MSG, NKJV

The greatest men are not the men who have amassed the most wealth or built the greatest buildings. Greatness is not measured by popularity but by generational relevance earned through significant service to God and humanity. Selah (See John 12:24-26; 2 Samuel 7:9; Genesis 12:2)

The greatest men and women are those who have sacrificed their lives for a cause greater than themselves, leveraged their abilities and resources to make life better for others and influenced generations to come with their vision and the quality of their character. That’s greatness. ‬See Romans 16:3-4; Acts 15:25; 20:24; 1 Corinthians 15:30-31 NIV.

Think of people like Jesus Christ our Lord who laid down His life for the salvation of humanity and gained a Name far greater than any other name in all three worlds of existence. See Philippians 2:5-11; Galatians 2:20

What about the Apostle Paul who lived a life of significance that has made tremendous impact on this world for generations to come. He lived selflessly and gave himself to the furtherance’s of the work of the kingdom in the earth. See Acts 20:17-24; Galatians 6:17; 2 Timothy 4:6-8

Great men don’t seek theirs. They seek the good of all, that’s why they are remembered and loved by all. Selflessness earns trust. When we work with the intention to use all that we are, all that we have and all that we ever hope to be to advance the kingdom and to bless others we cannot be forgotten. God Himself blesses and increases us. Hallelujah!!!

Stop focusing on only your needs and seeking only what you want. Don’t be self consumed. Think about others. See Philippians 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 13:5; Romans 12:10. Be considerate. Be kind and tender hearted, seeking the good and the betterment of others. Know that you are sowing good seeds. The harvest thereof will be far greater. Keep at it and you are on the path to greatness. Selah

A Christian’s Assurance in the Face of Crisis Featured

Galatians 1:3-4 KJV
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

2 Samuel 24:25 NKJV
And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.

Christ Jesus has been offered on behalf of the Body of Christ. He has offered Himself without spot to God to cleanse us from our sins which delivers us from this present evil world. Christ’s death was the full payment for all our sins. This was the propitiation for our sins. God looks upon us in mercy and chooses to watch over us and protect us as His own. See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The Blood of Jesus Christ has established a New Covenant based upon better promises. The New Covenant is far better than the Old Testament. If God protected those in the ancient times under the Old Covenant, then most assuredly He will see to it that you are safe. See Matthew 11:11; Hebrews 7:22; 8:6.

Remember that God the Father loves you the way He loves Jesus. Think about it. God would willingly and joyfully do for you whatever He would have done for Jesus if He was here on earth. Why? Because as He is so are we in this world. You are the Body of Christ. See John 17:23; 1 John 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:15-17; Colossians 1:24.

You are not an ordinary person. See 1 Peter 2:9; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3. You have a privileged place in God. Get it straight: You are special to God. He considers you a special envoy and an ambassador of the kingdom of God. You are entitled to the protection of angels. See 2 Corinthians 5:20.

Psalms 91:11-13 NKJV
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Psalms 34:7 NKJV
The angel of the LORD encampeth
round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

God has assigned His angels to protect you and to preserve in these times. Fret not, God is faithful, He won’t let you down. He preserved Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He plagued Pharaoh and his family because of Abraham and Sarah. He closed the wombs of everyone in Abimelech’s because of them too. You are the seed of Abraham. So you can be rest assured that God will preserve you and deal with all those who come against you. Selah

Let the following words comfort your heart:

Isaiah 41:10-13 KJV
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee:
they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Rest in the Lord. He will protect you, preserve you and cover you at all times from the evils of these last days. Not one of your hairs will perish. Trust God! He has been doing this for a very long time. Selah

Consider This: The Paradox of God: When Least Expected

Consider This:
The Paradox of God: When Least Expected

1 Corinthians 2:6-8 NKJV
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

God is a thousand thousand times amazingly smart and astonishingly brilliant than we could ever know. When we study the history of God’s dealings with men we will notice that every time it seems that man has come to the end of Himself, that’s when God steps in.

2 Corinthians 4:6 NKJV
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 4:16 NKJV
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

You will also notice that in the darkest and blackest of times, God shines His light of Hope through the darkness. For instance, When the children of Israel were under Roman occupation and the reign of Herod, they had no idea that it was the appropriate time that Messiah would be born. God always shows up when men least expect Him to. Think about that for a moment. That’s why His coming will be like a thief in the night.

When Pharaoh was killing the male seed of Israel, no one would have thought that it was the time that their deliverer would be born. Interestingly, Moses was nurtured, raised and cultured in Pharaoh’s house. All that Moses learned was used for the furtherance of God’s plan and purpose for Israel. Think about it.

When Israel was under siege by the Philistines with Goliath as their leader and champion, no one would have thought that was when one of the greatest Kings of Israel would introduced to the world as an outstanding warrior. David emerged when Saul hid. In these times, men and women after God’s heart will be launched to the forefront. Selah

When Jesus was been tortured before He was nailed to the cross at the crucifixion, it seemed it was all over for this new faith and the way of life that He purported. When He gave up the ghost and was buried, it seemed as if it was forever closed that Christianity was a thing of the past, but they did not know about the resurrection. After that dark moment in history came the greatest story of victory ever told: Victory over death.

A man once gloated about the end of Christianity. He boasted that Christianity would be a thing of the past, amazingly, it was from his house that the first printed Bible was produced. It is inconceivable to think that God can be defeated. God always wins. The Bible always outlives its critics. Christianity always outlasts its prosecutors.

This present challenge will not end Christianity. It will birth a new phase of God’s work in the earth. God will bring a new thing out of this. He will raise a new breed of people, a remnant totally sold out to the furtherance of the kingdom of God with no personal or private agenda. He will make the devil pay. Yes He will! People are desperately searching for truth. Are you aware that more people are reading the Bible these days more than ever. Are you aware that souls are been saved online? Keep your eyes open. Be alert, in the midst of this, God is up to something. Selah

How To Use Your Authority

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you from God the Father and from Jesus Christ our Lord in whose Name we have been given authority over devils.

Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have an unqualified access the the Father and all the bounties of heaven. See Ephesians 1:3; Philippians 4:19.
Today I want us to look at the subject of authority. Authority in its simplest terms is “Delegated Power.” Authority is the legal right to use power. It is the right to command and enforce obedience. Authority is right, mastery, jurisdiction, capacity etc. See Luke 10:17-19.
Until a believer understands his or her authority in Christ he or she will not be able walk in victory and enjoy the quality of life that God has ordained for him or her.


We live in a wicked world. See 1 John 5:19; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 2:18; 1 Corinthians 16:9. There are spiritual forces that seek to hinder your progress, delay your dreams and destroy you and yours. See John 10:10a. But God has an answer to all of these.
Firstly, we need to know that the blood of Jesus Christ and His vicarious death on the cross did not only fix the sin problem.
Hebrews 2:14-15 KJVForasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
The word destroy in this context means the following:

The Believer has tremendous Authority in Christ
  1. To render entirely idle or useless
  2. Abolish
  3. To do away
  4. To make of none effect
  5. To bring to nought
  6. Inoperative
  7. Inactivate
  8. To cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency
  9. To deprive of force, influence or power

This means that when Jesus died on the cross, He incapacitated the enemy. By virtue of Christ’s death on the cross, all of satan’s power over us is broken. The blood of Christ delegitimizes satan’s authority over us. His authority over us was due to the sin question. The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death.” This means the payment for sin is death. The death of Jesus Christ was the FULL payment for all our sins. See Hebrews 9:14-17; 9:26-28;10:5-13; Romans 4:25; 1 John 3:8; Colossians 2:13-15 ESV.


By reason of Christ’s death we are free people. Satan’s hold or control over us has become illegitimate. The price has been paid. We have been bought with a price. No matter the covenant that our ancestors had with satan or devils, by reason of the New Birth and the efficacy of the blood we are free people. The blood of Jesus has broken our ties with such allegiances. When we say the sinner’s prayer or accept Christ as our Lord and personal savior, we have broken any ties or link with those devils. We have pledged our allegiance to a new King: Jesus is His Name. He is our Lord.
Ignorance is the devil’s greatest weapon against the Church. He will bring up issues of your past against you in order to keep you condemned and under the whiplash of shame, guilt and condemnation. You need to know that God forgives completely and thoroughly. See Hebrews 8:12; 10:17; 1 John 1:9; 5:17.


This is the reason why the Lord sent us to preach repentance and remission of sins. See Luke 24:46; Acts 5:31; 13:38-39; John 3:16-17. When people become aware of the fact that Christ’s death makes satan’s hold over them illegal, they will resist and rebel against his oppressive rule over them. They will become bold to command and demand for their freedom and their liberties from all kinds of spiritual oppression. The blood of Jesus has set you free. The blood has cleansed you. Take a bold stance against the enemy in the authority of Jesus Christ’s Name. Demand your freedom. Christ has redeemed you from the curse. See Galatians 3:13-14; Ephesians 1:3-4.
Isaiah 49:24-25 KJVShall the prey be taken from the mighty,or the lawful captive delivered?But thus saith the Lord,Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered:for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,and I will save thy children.
