The Nourishing word

Who has authority over your life?

This week we publish an article written by one of our listeners .

God is above you in a position of authority over your life. Rejoice with those who rejoice ….. Romans 12:15. 

Never be overwhelmed by time or a season in your life that you begin to stop being Godly. 

It doesn’t matter how many people go ahead of you. In your understanding and ways they are going ahead but the Bible says; my ways are not your ways. As far as the sky is from the earth so are my ways from yours.. 

God is faithful and just and cannot be mocked. He gives everyone according to the fruit of his deeds.  If you remain principled, you will see him faithful. 

I returned and saw under the sun that—The race is not to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor bread to the wise,
Nor riches to men of understanding,
Nor favour to men of skill;
But time and chance happen to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11

No one has overtaken you!  Time and chance happen to us all according to the counsel of God’s will not man’s futile efforts. In days of despair just encourage yourself and say for as long as there is breath, I’m one day closer to where God is taking me. 

I want to submit to every discouraged and tired person; or anyone  who is about to throw in the towel. You think everyone has overtaken you.  You have attended baby showers, caught the bride bouquet and gutter a million times. Now you resent going to weddings. You have been told several times – a groom’s man but never the groom.   Don’t be discourage. Keep rejoicing with those who rejoice. Deuteronomy 28:2 says, all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the LORD your God.

Your life matters to God.  You are not alive by coincidence.  No one can out plan God because He has made everything good in its time. 

Say to yourself : I am not in control of times and seasons!

I am in control of how I respond to the one who created me to go through life governed by principle of time and Seasons. 

It is time to show yourself worthy as a believer. Don’t be governed by arguments, unfounded statements of people, imprisonment of culture and societal pressures.  

As a Christian, remember it is for freedom that Jesus died at the cross: 

Truly, this only I have found:That God made man upright,But they have sought out many schemes.Ecclesiastes 7:29

Stop complicating yourself! Scripture continues to teach us in (Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathomwhat God has done from beginning to end.

Salute God and submit all your ways to Him. He will perfect everything concerning you.
