Fellowship

Hebrews 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Watching a documentary on the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti, I discovered some salient truths. A single wildebeest cannot confront a lion, but a herd of wildebeest can, there is power in numbers. As long as the wildebeest are moving on together as a mighty troop they were a threat to the lions, who were looking for their next meal. Sometimes the wildebeest use their horns to attack the lions and the lions would speed off, clearly overwhelmed by the sheer number of the herd. But the lions did not give up, as the migration continues, some wildebeest began to slack in their pace and stray of the herd. The lions took notice and went after the straying wildebeest, they were easily over powered by the lions and killed.

The scripture describes the devil as a lion, 1Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Slacking from fellowshipping with the brethren makes you vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy, when we fellowship with one another, there is the corporate anointing that comes from the presence of God. The weak become strong and the weary is encouraged. In his presence there is fullness of Joy.

People may slack from fellowshipping due to several reasons but some say they were offended may be by a member or a minister, as they slack they become cold towards the things of God and gradually backslide.

Some retract due to the pressures of life, as they juggle everything together, they threat the fellowship as a disposable and throw it overboard. The result is that they also backslide. Pressures of life are supposed to drive you to God not away from God.

Whatever the reason may be, return to the presence of God and fellowship with God’s people. There is an enemy watching every of your steps and seeking who to devour, you will not be a victim.

JOY

You know joy has come when you can dance without music, when your mouth becomes the musical instruments and the whole cells of your body becomes the choir. Vibrating in harmony to the beat of your soul. It doesn't matter if you are off key, it is not important if your steps are off beat as you do the shuffle, tears of gratitude may cascade down your eyes as your heart connects with the angelic choir in heaven as you know Unspeakable joy full of glory... In that single moment you know you are created for this... to bring forth HIS praise... Halleluyah... Let the whole earth sing HIS praise...

SMALL & BIG

Don't despise what you have, take time out to understand the potential of what you carry. It may look small to you or everyone else, but with God's involvement, your time and dedication it will become big. The big is in the small, a tiny seed can make a forest. Do something with what you have NOW, your future is in your seed. YOU WILL GET THERE...

STORMS

The presence of Jesus in the boat is not a guarantee that storms of life will not come, but it is a guarantee that they will not overcome you. Every doer of the word is guaranteed to outlast the storm. The 3 Hebrew children came out of fire to their places of prominence in a foreign land, Daniel came out of the the Lion's Den unscathed, Job lost all and gained much more back. Whatever you are going through, God has an unquencheable Laughter in stock for you that will erase the pain and pressure you are going through. See as HE sees you, on the other side of the storm, fully fulfilled and satisfied, nothing missing, nothing broken. HE is waiting for you on the other side. YOU WILL GET THERE...

RELATIONSHIPS

"How you handle relationships, will determine, if you will have open doors or will be standing before doors with broken knobs" God has scheduled the people in your life for a purpose, the challenge is to recognize them and the purpose for which they are in your life Most things that God wants to get to you, will come through the vehicle of relationships, an angel may not appear to u but God will use people "In life, There are people in life that you must not MEET and there are people in life that you must not MISS. The challenge is to know the difference."
