HE WOULD SHOW ME GREAT THINGS

 

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know

– Jeremiah 33:3

In my life, I have felt blessed and highly favoured by God. There are so many things that I have received from God that I did not even think I deserved or even felt like I was worth it.

There have been so many positions that God has placed me in that has made me wonder why He felt I deserved it.

This has been really repeated but I felt it was important to share the story of Olajumoke. Many of you might know about how Olajumoke gained fame and fortune overnight after she photobombed Tinie Tempah’s photo.

If you did not think miracles existed, then I implore you to read up on Olajumoke’s story. In my life, I have never seen anything like that happen. I believe that God just wanted to show us that He can do ‘great and unsearchable things’ if you call upon His name.

I am a testimony to God’s goodness. I am blessed to be where I am and I know that it is not by my might. I want you to know that God wants us to be great. He does. He is our Father. He doesn’t want anything less for us. So, all we have to do is call on His name and leave the rest to Him. Being great is our birthright and once you know that, everything else falls into place.

I am a work in progress and I understand like many others that sometimes doubts set in. I experience that a lot of the time. We are human and it is understandable. However, whenever you feel that way, just remember that God is still there and He is waiting for us to speak to him. I mean, call on Him…what do we really have to lose?

For God So Loved Me…

 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

 

So, about a month and a half ago, I made a promise to God. I was waiting for my results and I was nervous and scared. I was also scared that I would not get into uni for my postgraduate and basically, everything would get messed up. So, I promised him that if he got me through it all, I will do what I can to share his word in my own way.

On Friday, everything I hoped for finally worked out even though prior to that, I was feeling extremely overwhelmed with everything and everybody. So, seeing that God did all this for me, I see no reason why I should not at least, try. Anyway, this is just a little backgrounder. Let’s get down to what this post is really all about.

‘For God so loved the world…’, When I was a kid going to church, this Bible verse is probably the first one I ever knew by heart. In fact, I think every Christian knows this Bible verse. It is like the basic foundation of Christianity. It tells the tale of how God gave the world something special so that they would not have to perish.

In recent years, I have spoken and listened to people who have wondered about who this God is and why things happen they way they happen in the world if he truly exists. Well, I have no answers. All I can tell them is what I know which is: God is Love.

I would not classify myself as an ideal Christian. I do a lot of bad things and I don’t go to church as often as I should and most times, I forget to pray. However, even in all of that God still loves me and I know it. I have my doubts too as Christian every now and again but one thing I constantly believe is that He loves me and He wants me to be better. I believe that he sent his son down to earth to give us all a new beginning.

Today is valentine’s day and I know it seems corny to use the John 3: 16 verse, but I have been through a whole lot in my life and I have lost people along the way. However, one thing that has always been a constant in my life is God. He has always been there and that to me is pure, unadulterated love.
