The Four Abilities of God Needed For a Turn Around

The reason people troop to the wrong places looking for answers to the various questions that life asked them is because many do not understand the ability of the Almighty God to save through Christ Jesus. Many have been duped, raped, destroyed and plundered because instead of coming to God who can truly save, they were deceived by people, personalities and powers claiming to offer solution. 
God in Himself has several abilities that He has manifested at various times and I will just discuss shortly four out of the many needed to turn the situation of any man around:

(1) Ability to Reconcile Man Back To Himself - "And you who were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled" (Col1:21). After the fall of man through sin in the beginning, a vacuum was created on his inside. Since then man has been wallowing not knowing that the missing link in peace with God. That explains the several religions of the world; man can't exist without worshiping something. He must idolize something in order to temporary fill the vacuum inside. For Adam and Eve they tried to cover their own emptiness with leaves yet it could not help until God shed the blood of an animal and clothed them with its skin.
A minister shared with us how he was called to minister to a man wailing and agonizing on his hospital bed. He was already feeling the agony of hell while still clinging to life. This minister tried to preach to this agonizing man of God's love and ability to reconcile man no matter the weight of his sins yet the man was saying I have committed so much atrocities and God cannot forgive me. The minister struggled with that man until he finally died. He died and went to hell not because God has not saved us but because of lack of understanding that one of God's ability is reconciliation. Angels wonder why God is so mindful of man that God could give himself as a sacrifice for man's redemption. I too wonder so. But I guess it is because of God's investment in man. He made man in His own image. He breathed into man His own breath; that is to say He poured His own soul into man. That is why God can go to any length to restore man and reconcile him back to himself. He simply loves man and that explains it best.
Many do not believe in this ability of God so they die pursuing vain passion and religion. They keep playing religion thinking it is their own sacrifice that will earn them salvation. But the weight of man's fall is so much that no man's sacrifice or piety or religion can save him. It can only come from a sheep without blemish. It can only come from a man in whom is no sin. That is why Jesus, a man who knew no sin died that we who believe may become God's righteousness.

Dwell on The Positives

That some things seem to be lacking your life now is not the absence of them.   What the enemy wants to remind you are your failings, your rejections, dejection and things lacking in your life.  Because, he knows that as long as you dwell on the negatives, your outcome remains negative. But in this platform, we want to remind you of victories, of success, of abundant life, all in Christ.
You are what God says you are: blessed!  True blessing starts from knowing am truly blessed. No wonder 2Peter1:2 says, "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord!"  Knowledge in things of God is a multiplier of God's blessings.

Make Alliance With Righteous Causes

Scriptural Highlight: (2Kings 9:17) - "Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel, and he saw the company of Jehu as he came and said, 'I see a company.' And Joram said, 'Take a horseman and send to meet them and let them say, 'is it well'. So a man on horseback went to meet them and said, 'Thus says the king, 'is it peace?' And Jehu answered, 'what do you have to do with peace? Turn and ride behind me."
Our scriptural highlight for today showcases a scene of battle between righteousness and evil. Joram king of Israel belonged to the family of Ahab and Jezebel, people that have troubled Israel with their sorcery, covetousness and blood spills. And a word of prophecy from Elijah had gone out against this evil house saying, "Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will utterly sweep thee away and will cut off from Ahab every man-child...(1Kings 21:21). So, in effect, God located Jehu and anointed him to fight and fulfill His…

Men are made in pressure

Most of the precious things we use in life are produced by pressure.
Gold is refined under intense heat and pressure.
To get the juice from an orange, pressure is applied.
In the same way, certain heats are needed to produce men.
There is a  tendency to relax as long as no one is applying pressure on your life.
Some people will never have built houses if not that Landlord has pressured them.
Some will never do anything unless there is quick reward.

The law of motion states that a body continues at rest or uniform motion on a straight line unless external force is applied: so with many people in destiny.
Many people will never move forward unless nudged.
That's why God gave us words of inspiration and motivation.
No matter how down or battered a man maybe in destiny, there is something he'll hear and a new life will be infused again.
However, never wait for motivation. Great men in destiny are known to be self motivated.
It's better to learn through obedience than throug…
