  1. By Henry Korsah Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. I would like to say dealing with a broken heart is not easy. It can be caused by a loved one passing away, breaking up with someone, past trauma from relationships with family, trauma from relationships and rejection etc. I do not know if you have experienced anything I listed or something else. Maybe, you have been blessed by not experiencing a broken heart, you can still share or use this to encourage someone. I would like to say meditating on Psalm 147: 3 can be very useful, I feel like it is important to remind yourself that it says in his word in Isaiah 41: 10… So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand. No matter what always look to God because he will always take care of you. Do not be afraid because this is just a season that you are in; you will overcome this season. I would advise that you play a banging gospel playlist, pray, and do anything to take your mind off things. Focus on the presence of God and experience the fullness of joy. It is always important to remember he is the Lord that heals you, whether it is emotional or physical; he will always be by your side. Dealing with heartbreak is not easy, it forces a lot of change to take place. It can be removing certain memories from your life, deleting their social media, their numbers. However, it can also be working on restoration to provide peace for yourself and the people around you. It may not be easy but God is your strength. To heal from a broken heart you will need to forgive the people that may have wronged you. Although, they may have done the most disgusting or hurtful things to you. For you to be forgiven by God, you must forgive others. Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Even though, you may have forgiven the person it does not mean you have to stay connected with the person. It is important to pray that if it is God’s will for that person to stay in your life, let them remain but if not, for God to remove them. I would like to give you a final verse Matthew 11:28-29 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Let us all draw to Jesus and he will provide rest for us. If you ever want to contact us, comment on our page, and we will pray for you that the Lord will heal you from a broken heart. Stay blessed.

  2. By Henry Korsah Acts 13:22 – After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’ Hello, my fellow warriors, during this quarantine God has placed this topic on my heart. I decided to share what I have discovered. I believe we have all learnt about David during Sunday school, service or even our own quiet time. It is interesting because when we think of David, we think of the boy that defeated Goliath, an adulterer, a murderer, a musician, a shepherd, a soldier, a king and that he has written half of the Psalms and has been accredited to the Psalms. Nonetheless, let us go into the main topic of my study and discussion. The main verse of today is Acts 13:22; the striking part of the verse is… God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’ I find this very interesting for 2 reasons: 1) God testified concerning him. 2) God has never said this about anyone else in the bible. David plays such a prominent role in the bible. David is mentioned more times in the Bible than Jesus. Jesus comes from the lineage of David. The bible mentions a lot of about David in the new testament the House of David in Luke, the City of David in Luke, the Lineage of David in Luke, the Seed of David in John, the Key of David in Revelation 3, the Root of David in Revelation 5 and the Offspring of David in Revelation 22:16. I have gone off-topic quite a bit but this highlights that Jesus came from the lineage of David. David & Goliath (1 Samuel 17: 1 -31) David is presented to us as a small young man, obedient to his father Jesse, an honourable shepherd, fearless and full of faith. David was even put down by his older brothers although David was shocked by their actions. David still had more faith than Saul that they will have victory over the Philistines. David even told Saul about his shepherding skills, and how he slayed animals more dangerous than Goliath, and that the Lord delivered him. Saul was impressed and had faith that the Lord will be with David. Saul had faith that the Lord will be with David and Saul gave David his armour for protection. David prepared for battle using Saul armour however he was not comfortable with having a sword. David chose 5 stones, put them in a pouch, his sling and approached the Philistine. Goliath felt disrespected and cursed David. David faith caused him to declare that with the Lord on his side that the Israelites will have victory. David youthfulness allowed him to be faster than everyone else on the field, to take out Goliath with his sling and stones, he celebrated, then run to cut off his Goliath head with Goliath's sword. Saul was impressed with David’s actions and was desperate to find out who David’s father was, he asked his servant and Saul servant had no idea. However, he asked David when he saw him, and David said he said he is the son of his servant Jesse. David loved thy law (Psalm 119) David pretty much is describing to us the different ways he is in love with the word of God. David also explains in this how the word of God helps him. I believe David was a man that meditated throughout the day. David mind was constantly on the Lord, you could not separate him from the word of God. David lust (2 Samuel 11:1-27) David saw Bathsheba naked, slept with her and she became pregnant. The first issue is that Bathsheba was Uriah wife and Uriah was in battle. The second issue is that David will try and get Uriah drunk to cover up his activity with Bathsheba. David was not successful but he came up with an evil plan to have Uriah killed. To position Uriah in an area to be killed, and for him to blame it on the war because people die in war. Bathsheba mourned her husbands' death, and David took Bathsheba to be his wife and had the child. God was displeased with David actions. David Repentance (Psalm 51) In this Psalm, David is repenting for the sins he had committed against God. David started repenting when he realised that he had displeased God through his actions in 2 Samuel 11:1-27. I have given you different accounts that have taken place in David life. I feel like now I can interject on why God has said David is a man after his heart: David was a man of faith David was fearless David was always thanking God David was always writing Psalms even in a cave David was always meditating his word I believe God saw everything David has been through in his life, that David will never give up on God. It did not even matter if David rebelled, he would always run to God. Therefore, it is very easy to see why God called David a man after his heart. I mean it is even evident in Psalms, no man has written love letters, songs and poems; about a person, the way David did about God. I would encourage us to all aspire to be like David, to never leave the presence of God, to always meditate on the word of God, to be a person of faith, to always repent and experience grace through repentance and to be fearless but to always fear God. I believe if we can do this we may also hear God tell us that we are also a man/woman after God’s heart. I mean going through this study is a very humbling experience. It made me wonder if I truly love God, all I can encourage us to do is to love God. It does not matter if you read the bible front to back or can memorise the whole bible. The most important thing is loving God because loving God is the first and greatest commandment. Matthew 22: 37 – 38 Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. This was truly fulfilled by David Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love, I thank you for your mercy, I thank you for your grace. I pray that I may love and desire you like David, so that you may also call me a man/woman after your heart, in Jesus name. AMEN!

  3. By Victor Remes ‘He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High. Psalms 91:1a Right, in case you didn’t know and was wondering why there are queues outside your local supermarket; people wearing masks and rubber gloves. Well, it’s because we are in a season of a complete nationwide lockdown caused by the covid19. As our UK Government has enforced the law of social distancing and setting out only a few law/rules to follow, our normal lives have been completely turned upside down. People are being faced with a life-threatening illness, families worried about tomorrow for their loved ones, People being let go so that large and small businesses can afford to survive; children having no school, college or uni. Places, where we would normally go to meet with friends and family, are closed including church; not going to lie; the church part got me. You get the idea. As we need to adapt to a new normal, we are left to figure out what we can do to keep going throughout this time. Some have turned to pick up new hobbies like Tiktok; haha you won’t catch me there anytime soon. But I’ve been spending my time exercising, reading more books, practising the guitar. Doing this of course when I am not working. Something that I’m trying, is dedicating my time with God. I feel that this world crisis that we are having isn’t a coincident, really, I believe He’s got us where He wants us to be right now. The time we have right now I believe that God wants us to spend it mostly with Him. Especially for those that never had proper personal devotions/prayers before and only are dependent on Sunday church to be their fix for the week. In the opening verse of this piece; I’ve picked Psalms 91:1a to help me. Let’s break it down. “He who” (You) “Dwells” otherwise meaning (spending time) “In The Secret Place” (where no one can distract you / or Where God can meet with you). “Most High” (with God). So, putting that together “You spending time where there are no distractions and where you can meet with God”. This truly puts you in a place to experience the mystery of God and having humility allows us to truly meet with Him. In Exodus 34:29-35 – Speaks about Moses after spending time with God was unaware that his face had become radiant because he spoke to God. and because of this radiance Moses was left with no chose but to wear a veil when facing the people of Israel as they were afraid to come near him because of the power of God. The only time he would remove this veil is when in the presence of God. In Matthew 17:1-2 – Also speaks about Jesus having this radiance because of the presence of God. It actually says that Jesus was “Transfigured” and that “His face shone like the sun and His clothes became as white as the light”. What am I trying to say here? Notice that both Moses and Jesus after spending time with God were both transfigured by the presence/power of God. With everything going on, I know we have time; let’s dedicate 10 mins worshipping, 10 min reading the bible and 10 min praying that is a total of 30 mins. I want us to remember this, God loves to spend time with you, just as you are, this is where humility comes into play. You can speak to Him about life, anything you want to talk about. But you will also need to learn, is hearing His voice and by doing this you will, therefore, build or even strengthen your relationship with Him. I hope this has encouraged you to take the necessary actions needed in your Christian walk. Let’s come out of this pandemic transfigured by the glory of God. God Bless You All Peace!

  4. By Henry Korsah Hello my warriors, it has been so long... I would like to encourage you for this upcoming decade. Before, we get into that let us address the past decade. A lot has happened in the past decade, secondary school, college, uni. That alone suggests growth has taken place spiritually, mentally, and I guess I can say physically. Throughout that time period, I believe I have been learning from God, directly and indirectly. I had to learn how to deal with a major loss from my family, and to continue the legacy by being instrumental in my church back home, whether if it is organising a praise and worship night, a conference to win souls for the Lord or an event to raise funds for charity. I believe my journey has not been easy at all but with God nothing is impossible. Along the journey, I have made a massive pit stop, at the church I attend at uni. I feel like I have been placed there by the Lord; to go and study a lot of things in ministry. This past decade, I was touched and humbled by meeting so many wonderful people, even if they have hurt me or put a smile on my face. It has all been a learning experience, I have wronged some people, I pray they forgive me, people have wronged me, they are forgiven but if I haven’t. I pray that I forgive them. I have been humbled by the fact that people have given their lives to Christ, through the tools God has given me to reach his people. It is amazing to witness someone give their life or receive a heartfelt message on my phone about someone giving their life, or an e-mail saying the blog has touched them. It gives me the fuel to carry on whenever I have doubts that what I am doing is going to fail. However, I need to learn to put my trust in God, leave everything to him, and not to trust my own efforts but his efforts. I hope my experiences inspire and encourage you to do something for the Lord this upcoming decade. I pray this decade, is the decade you realise God has chosen YOU! Believe that you can make an impact on your walk with Christ and reflect it by doing something for the Lord. It does not necessarily mean go and preach or teach on the pulpit. A lot of things can be done like mentoring, create an event for young people, send daily verses to your peers and family, evangelise, write a blog, start a podcast, etc. Have faith that you can do all things through Christ, which strengthens you because he will never leave you nor forsake you. This decade, be positive, speak life into anything you are doing. Go out and love your brothers and sisters as Christ loved you. Go out, and do what you dream of doing. Ask God to guide you and lead you, be strong and be courageous. Do not forget you are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that you are made in his image. Therefore, you have the power to do anything by his grace. Do not worry about the mistakes you might have made in the past decade. I have made plenty of mistakes in the past decade. A lot that I regret but it is important to understand that God does not hate you, but that he loves you, and that you have been set free from those mistakes. God bless you, I pray that this decade will be full of peace, love, understanding, and most importantly growth in the Lord.

  5. By Victor Remes First of all, I would also want to apologise for the long hold up. But anyways let’s get to it. This piece is about True Surrender I feel this is a very important part of our walk with Christ Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭NIV‬‬ - “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” This verse says to be transformed, be changed and I know this is what everyone needs today. Both young and old, we need to surrender, we need a spiritual and moral change. This is why Jesus asks us to make a total surrender to Him. Luke 18:18-24 NIV speaks of a certain ruler who asked Jesus about how he would be able to obtain eternal life. Jesus responded by “You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honour your father and mother.’ ” - Luke‬ ‭18:20‬ ‭NIV‬‬ This ruler responded by saying he has kept all of these commandments since he was a little boy. - Luke 18:21 NIV ‭‭Jesus hearing this said “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”” - Luke‬ ‭18:22‬ ‭NIV Here Jesus is asking for the ruler to surrender all his riches, all his possessions and give to the poor. But catch this, when that ruler heard what Jesus said he became sad as he was very wealthy. - Luke 18:24 NIV After that, we never hear about this certain ruler ever again. My question is what is Jesus asking you to surrender? If this ruler had surrendered the very things; Jesus asked him he would’ve been counted as one of the disciples and not only that he would’ve been given eternal life. I will leave you with this, Surrender is a chose not a command. We have the option to give up all, follow Jesus and have eternal life or just stay enslaved by the earthly possessions that will not last forever. I pray that this blesses you all and I can’t wait to see you all next time.
  6. By Henry Korsah Hi everybody, I would like to apologise for the long hiatus. Nonetheless, your kind encouraging words to return, has not fallen on deaf ears or blind eyes. I would like to say, thank you! My topic today is on Trials and Tribulations, it is also the reason why I have not posted for so long. The last summer holidays till now I have been facing so many challenges. The challenges were physical, mental and spiritual. However, God is still pulling me through, and God is still working on me. Anyways………. we will start the topic: I believe every Christian will face their own trials and tribulations before they receive their breakthrough, a perfect example for this is Job. Job was a man that barely sinned, no matter what came his way. He was very thankful to God; the praises of God were always on his lips. God was very proud of Job’s love towards him, that he was even bragging about him, in Job 2:3 Job 2:2. And the Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” (NIV) Job 2:3. Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.” (NIV) I pray that the Lord will brag about you too! To cut the whole story short, after God was bragging about Job. Satan was saying to God, if you leave Job alone, allow me to test him, to see if he will curse you. God was ok with it; the only condition is that Satan will not kill him. Job suffered throughout the period of trials, even his own wife suggested that he should curse God and die. Despite all of the sufferings Job faced. Job still did not curse God, Job was even mocked and laughed at by his friends for still having faith in God. Moreover, God was airing all of Jobs prayers until Job prayed for his friends that were mocking his relationship with God. God blessed the latter part of Jobs life. I would recommend you read the book of Job for the full story. It takes a whole lot of faith to endure the trials and tribulations you will encounter. It is very easy to turn your back on God during this time. You will begin to question God and his timing etc. You may say things like ‘God you did this for this person, how come you have not done this for me?’ or ‘God has not answered any of my prayers, so why should I bother?’ even ‘God, I pray, I read my bible and listen to the word everyday, so why am I going through this.’ I do understand all of these statements because I have said all of this at least once, three or a thousand times myself. We should not allow the devil, to trick us into having these thoughts, instead, we should be thankful because our breakthrough is around the corner. The doubt we begin to have in the trials and tribulations period delays our breakthrough, without faith we will not believe that our breakthrough is near, due to doubts in our mind. The bible says in Hebrews 11:1……. Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This verse should be a reminder that no matter what we face, we should have faith that God will pull us through, even though we may not see it happening, immediately. I would encourage you all to stay hooked to reading the word, prayer and listening to the word during this tough period. God bless you all, see you at the next post ?
  7. By Henry Korsah I want us to dive into the purpose of this blog. I wanted to encourage you all, that whatever you are going through, Jesus has done it for you. He went on Calvary so that you may be set free from every bondage, stronghold, iniquity, and everything that will keep you down. The enemy is so crafty that he has manipulated a way to trick us into thinking that we are not free. This is why he has brought illnesses, financial issues, generational curses, and anything to stop us from believing in God. However, God, sent us his only son Jesus, to die for our freedom. Jesus, last few words on Earth was; ‘It Is Finished.’ John 19:28-30 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. I believe those three words that Jesus said initiated a change in everyone’s life. The change gives us the power to be healed, forgiven, and delivered from every issue. It is available to us only if we ask in his name. John 14:13 – 14 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank You, for sending your son, to come on Earth to die for us. I believe that I have been set free, forgiven, healed, and delivered. As it says in your Holy Word, who the Son sets free is free indeed. Thank You, for fulfilling your word. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen!
  8. By Victor Remes For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:11-13 Many of us have reached a point in our lives where we are pretty much comfortable. Having a roof over our heads, those that are making a decent income, a nice warm bed to sleep in; I would say that is pretty much comfortable. A person that is in this position would think to themselves “Why would I do anything to change this?”. Well I have come to know that this is very common among many; this is other wise known as the comfort zone; just stringing along is our lives. Don’t get me wrong I understand, we all have worked hard to reach this point in our lives and it may seem like a very good place to be. But there is also a problem with this when we stop reaching, stretching, seeking and risking we actually stop growing; Let me put it this way. In one of my pervious posts (Faith can move mountains) I mentioned about growing our faith system in comparison with going to the gym to train our bodies to get healthy and stronger. This obviously means making necessary sacrifices in order to reach that goal. But sitting around thinking about it or saying that you can’t isn’t going to make it happen; This is the comfort zone frame of mind it means that you are settling for what you are today; and without growth the person who you are today is all your ever going to be. (It’s the truth) Matthew 14:22-32 is basically speaking about Peter one of the 12 disciples and the only one that stepped out of the boat when Jesus called him in the middle of the sea. As Jesus’s boat got tossed by the storm and waves that night, He decided to walk on the sea to catch up with His fellow disciples because He can, He’s the Son of God. But of course the disciple were afraid of this and didn’t believe that it was Jesus. Peter opened his mouth and said to Jesus “Lord if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” – Matthew 14:28 NKJV. For most of you that have read your bibles will know what happened next. Jesus said “Come” – Matthew 14:29 NKJV; I bet Peter was thinking “Damm why did I have to open my big mouth”. Now bear in mind that Peter and the other 11 disciples were totally comfortable and safe on the boat but here Peter has to prove to himself and the others that the man walking on the sea is truly Jesus. So what did he do? Peter stepped out of the boat and walked towards Jesus on WATER! That is big; Peter the first disciple to walk on water and the first to step out of his comfort zone. But Peter didn’t really last long; He began to be afraid of the storm and started to sink into the sea crying out “Lord, save me!” - Matthew 14:30. Now bear in mind when Peter first stepped out of the boat his main focus was fixed on Jesus Peter was able to walk a few steps on water but when he changed his focus towards the storm he started to sink. But Jesus quickly stretched out His hand and caught Peter but said this “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” - Matthew 14:31. Just like Peter; Jesus is calling us to step out the boats of comforts because He wants us to grow and while you step out He asking you to focus and fix your eyes on Him don’t worry or be afraid of how the world can be but as long as your main focus is Jesus! but when you do lose focus Jesus will stretch out His arm to catch you but only when you call out to Him. The reason why I say only when you call out to Him; It's because when He responds to your cry, Your focus is switched back onto Jesus. You see a Warrior’s path is never easy as there are going to be times where you are going through something in your life where you are going to have to make decisions that are uncomfortable. You never know that those uncomfortable decisions could change a lot of things for the good maybe even better involving Jesus. I pray this will bless you all fellow warriors and that you have taken something from this. I had to learn this the hard way but Jesus never fails to amaze me through my life; and I pray that He will do the same for you all.

  9. By Henry Korsah Before I start this blog, I will like to apologise for the long hiatus. The Holy Spirit, is our inner being, it lives inside of us. Doctors cannot even identify, the Holy Spirit with their medical instruments. 1 Corinthians 6:19. ‘Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; Jesus even have confirmed that the Holy Spirit lives in us. John 14: 16-17 ‘And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever – the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.’ The feeling of the Holy Spirit is simply allowing it takeover, and you having no control of your mind/body. It is even compared to feeling drunk in Ephesians 5:18. ‘Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,’ Anyone can ask for the Holy Spirit because it is available to us all. Luke 11:13 ‘If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’ You can ask for anything, The Spirit of love, the Spirit of wisdom, the Spirit of understanding. I do remember mentioning in one of the previous blogs. King Solomon asking for the Spirit of wisdom (1st Kings 3:9-12). The Holy Spirit will cause you to have spiritual gifts such as dreams, visions, speak in tongues, and interpret tongues (Acts 2).

  10. By Victor Remes You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin. Psalms 85:2 NKJV Forgiveness the dictionary definition is to stop feeling angry or resentful towards (someone) for an offence, flaw, or mistake. I know many of you including me do struggle with forgiving others that have done wrong, and whoever it is and whatever they have done I know forgiveness isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. To be honest with you; writing this piece has been prompted by my own experiences with forgiving others including myself. Let me be straight and honest with you all; this post was the hardest piece I’ve ever written. The last few weeks I have been through some tough and painful challenges even the people that truly know me don’t even know. This season God brought me through has shown me that I have been holding grudges since I was a young kid. It could be grudges about myself or about people that have done me wrong. But I never actually let it go; all I done is slip it under a rug and literally forgot about it and carried on with life. How many of you are doing this? In the New Testament, the bible reminds us that God has forgiven all of our sins through Christ’s death. And time and time again; Christian are commanded to forgive as well. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. - Ephesians 4:32 NKJV What I found is the grudges I have been keeping were holding me back and if this was holding me back its also holding you back as well the reason I say this is because some of you may have thought that holding a grudge against somebody makes you strong but it doesn’t it makes you bitter; and that forgiving makes you weak it doesn’t it sets you free. God showed me that forgiveness is important, because when we truly forgive that’s when healing starts to happen inside us. The thing is ‘nobody is prefect’ we all make mistakes; we all know this saying very well but we all say this and still expect perfection from the people that are in our lives, the ones we speak so highly about but then they disappoint you, they hurt you, break your trust and abused the love you gave them. Well if we truly want to LOVE we need to FORGIVE. Christ died on the cross for me and you. Why? because He loves us knowing that we may not even love Him back. Reading the story of Jesus before He died on the cross. He didn’t expect anything back from the people that He shared His Time, Love and Trust to. They either praised Him or accused Him but He still loved them and forgave them. Jesus Himself forgave the people that done wrong to Him and why shouldn’t we forgive the people that have done wrong to us as well. I found that some of us are blaming ourselves for the lost of others, even the people that we know that have passed. Stop blaming yourself for the things you did bad and good or didn’t do while they were with us. You need to forgive yourself because really those that left have gone to live their life and the ones that have passed their death, their pain has been lifted and they are free from the world and its struggles. You shouldn’t take the responsibility for their passing, you can’t carry the weight of their death on your shoulders like a lead blanket dragging you further and further down. There is way more to forgiveness than this but I just want to say to truly release yourself from the painful burden you need to forgive just as Christ Jesus forgave you. You may feel like that you’re the problem to everyone’s pain at times but you are not. Forgive yourself and let yourself be free from the pain and find the truth about the true love through Christ Jesus. Now to those that are reading this now knowing that I may have done something against you; I ask that you forgive me. Not for me to feel better but that you find peace in your heart. To those that have done wrong to me I forgive you all, I’m done with feeling this pain and being disappointed in myself for holding onto this. I’m letting go of the things that have been holding me back. I pray that this will help you to let go and forgive. Prayer: Jesus! thank you for forgiving me, thank you for dying on the cross for me, you have shown your love to me and I thank you for it, I pray that you will show me how to forgive myself and those that have hurt me a lot as well and start your healing in my heart with your love. In Jesus Name Amen.
  11. By Henry Korsah As a Christian a great desire to have is attaining spiritual gifts. A spiritual gift enables the Holy Spirit to manifest within anyone that believes. The types of gifts you can receive is speaking in tongues, interpreting tongues, having visions, and dreams, and being able to prophesy. All of this can be found in Acts 2... Acts 2:4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. 6. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8. Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 17. “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 38. Peter replied “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The whole of Acts chapter 2 explains the beauty of receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will give you different gifts. 1 Corinthians 12…. 8. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9. to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10. to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. However, this will only happen if you desire these gifts, and if you do God will reveal things in a marvellous way. 1 Corinthians 12:31 31. Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way. Lord, I Pray you help me desire the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    God's Call

    By Victor Remes “For many are called, but few are chosen”- (Matthew 22:14) Every one of us is called by God for a specific purpose. We are all different, unique and gifted therefore God’s call in your life is not the same as the person next to you; it is specific and unique and only you can fulfil that. Either if its to be a leader in the church, a worshipper, a Sunday school teacher, a door keeper, or even just the person to be in the congregation. Don’t get me wrong God’s call isn’t limited to only in the church; you could be anything like a Police officer, Nurse, Engineer to a stay at home parent etc; and still be serving God according to His call. The question is will you pick up? God is calling you pretty much every day not on your physical phone but on your spiritual one and the only way to answer it is to listen to it ringing but you have the choice to pick it up or let it go to voicemail. The story of Jonah could give us an example; God called Jonah to go to a city called ‘Nineveh’ and call out against it because of a lot of sin that has been committed. But as soon as Jonah heard this he fled to ‘Tarshish’. Lets pause for a sec God told Jonah to go to ‘Nineveh’ but instead of doing that he fled to ‘Tarshish’ clearly he was running from God. (Jonah 1:1-3 ESV) This is how some of us are; God calls us or even speaks to us and most of us instead of answering we run away like Jonah. But I believe its not by purpose I believes its either out of fear or ignorance. Let’s resume so Jonah is now on a ship going to 'Tarshish' a place where God didn’t ask him to go. Jonah though he could get away from God, oh boy he was wrong (Psalm 139); This is God we are talking about. God caused a storm intending to threatened the ship Jonah was on to break. Everyone on the ship began to become afraid each of them crying to their god. They even throw things into the sea to try make the ship lighter. Hold on Where’s Jonah in all this madness. He was fast asleep. The Captain of the ship woke him up and asked him to call on his God. (Jonah 1:4-6 ESV) To find out the cause of the storm everyone on the ship decided to cast lots (flipping coin like stones or pulling stick of various length) to determine who had caused God to bring a storm upon them. As they cast lots it all fell on Jonah; they asked Jonah various questions as to why, who he was and began to become afraid for Jonah had told them he was running away from what God told him to do (His calling). The only way they could calm the storm is to throw Jonah off the ship to where a giant fish would swallow him up for three days lol its in the bible I leave that for you to read. (Jonah 1:6-17 ESV) Fast forwarding God spoke to Jonah asking him to go to ‘Nineveh’ in which Jonah went, and fulfilled God’s work and saw the people of Nineveh repent and God saw that they have turned from there evil ways and forgave them.(Jonah 3) From the story of Jonah we learnt that there is no running from God and His call upon our lives will be carried out either way. But think about this, Jonah ran away and if God didn’t ask the second time to visit Nineveh; Jonah wouldn’t have witness the whole city changing their ways from committing evil and saving them from the punishment that God intended in carrying out. But I need you to understand, if God calls you to a task, He will qualify you for the job. There is no reason for you to be afraid; some of you are probably saying to God “stop asking me I’m not qualified” But here’s the deal God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the call. Note: When God calls us to step out of our comfort zone, He is not calling us to be comfortable in the situation. He is calling us to be comfortable in Him despite the situations. God is calling you, equipping you and preparing you according to His purpose. This I leave with you trust God's calling it's OK to have questions and doubts that normal but is calling you because you are chosen.
  13. By Henry Korsah Hello my warriors! I will be doing a series on great desires. The topic for this post will be wisdom. If you take the word ‘WISDOM’ I do believe it comes from the two words WISE, and DOMINION. To be wise, it is like having uncommon knowledge, that no one else will be able to comprehend. To have dominion, it is like having control of everything in your surroundings. The ability to combine the two is an extraordinary gift. I suggest that it is something that we must desire. The bible tells us in James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (NIV) The verse is self-explanatory, to have wisdom all you need to do is ask; it is a straightforward process. A man who asked God for wisdom is King Solomon. 2 Chronicles 1: 10-12 10. Give me wisdom and knowledge that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” 11. God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, 12. therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.” (NIV) King Solomon, desired something no ruler has ever asked for before, this even shocked God. God, even gave King Solomon more than what he asked for, because of his genuine desire. People that have wisdom, are associated with the blessings that King Solomon received from God. Having no wisdom is not a blessing! Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. (NIV) Prayer: Dear God, I am praying for wisdom to lead my life in the way you want God, so that I may not perish, and never ignore your word. Amen
  14. By Victor Remes “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV Faith plays a very important part in our daily walk with Christ. Like it says in the verse above “But without faith it is impossible to please Him”. Like some of use going to the gym to train our bodies to lose weight and gain muscles. It’s also the same with our faith system we need to train our faith every day to lose unnecessary weight and build more of those spiritual muscles. But to do this we will need to find out what faith is. Well there is two ways of finding what faith is and we can find that in the Dictionary and in the bible. Dictionary definition of faith is: “Complete trust or confidence in someone or something” Bible definition of faith is: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 NKJV These two definitions are pretty much self-explanatory. But I will put it this way; “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.” “So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 NKJV Just as Jesus said having faith just as small as a mustard seed is enough faith to move a mountain. So imagine having faith as big as a mountain, or an elephant, or a tank or as big as the Eiffel Tower. You get what I mean. We need faith in our lives especially in our walk with God. But personally I know this and I know you all have experienced this as well; We can also lose faith. We can lose faith when things don't turn out the way we want it or when we experience some of life's monumental failures. Personally speaking when this happens to me I tend to overthink many negative things; thinking a load of unnecessary stuff questioning life itself, but that is just for that moment. But I want you to notice what I’m about to say next. I start reading my bible; reading verses that were a reminder. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?' Psalms 118:6 NKJV 'Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10 NKJV 'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.' Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV Above are some example verses that I use to get my faith back on track. There are many ways to build your faith and even ways to get back on track after losing some faith. Praise and Worshiping in my car on my way to work is one of the many examples I would be singing to Tasha Cobbs and trying to bust some moves while all the other drivers are just sitting there thinking I must be high lol. But just by doing that nearly every day my faith keeps growing and will continue to grow. I want to leave you with this keep growing, keep praising God, keep trusting Him, when life gets hard be patient and trust in his timing; and you will see the deliverance God will bring into your life. 'They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord , “to deliver you.”' Jeremiah 1:19 NKJV More of our posts: https://pathofwarriors.wordpress.com/
