There is a blood sacrifice in your name. Yes, in your name human blood was spilled. And this has consequences, eternal consequences because this blood speaks certain things in your life that ought to change your reality...
Sometime during this past week, it occurred to me that the Bible is divine; God-breathed and given. Since becoming born again maybe at around 14, I have never doubted that the Bible is God's word. I knew that, but this week it meant something a little different-more personal and precious to me...
A reason that really will redefine how we do life; that will redefine how we respond to challenges and setbacks, and put our hearts at rest irrespective of what today may look like for each one of us. For those of us who like to cut to the chase; the simple reason always boils down to Him, God, our Father and His assurance of love for us that is exemplified by His death on the cross.
I myself remember crying when my Form 4 results were made known to me, and my Shona result was not what I had wanted. I had invested late nights, reading of novels and research to try to get that elusive A. And when it did not come, I was so frustrated. And though the example may seem petty; my point is simply that I can relate to the feeling of a heavy heart from an unfulfilled dream.
So it has recently been bearing heavily on me that The Word of God is as important as the Bible says it is. Now that may sound crazy to say and admit: and maybe a better way to put it is I have a fresh revelation of just how paramount it is to speak life... Continue Reading →
Happy New Year. The Lord is kind and gracious; He was amazing for us last year and I believe He will be this year. It is who He is, and His nature is immutable and unchangeable, and the fact that He sent Jesus will forever; no matter the situation; be a testament of the extent... Continue Reading →
It sounds good; it sounds logical and it is coming from someone you value and trust. In fact, other people do it; and it is an implicit tradition that really is not prohibited by the Word of God. Weighed in the scales of common sense, practical wisdom and coming from someone you believe shares the... Continue Reading →
There is so much that is profound about someone testifying and telling their own story about what the Lord has done. I have myself many times felt intimidated and as if my story was good for me to know and just to experience as God's goodness towards me. Talking or saying something felt like it...

The manner of post that I will share today will carry a tone I do not often carry; a manner of speaking that may be construed as many things, that can be many things but one that as I write in my heart I carry a conviction that is a manner which at times, even... Continue Reading →
One of the reasons we are so susceptible to sin and why we do not take sin seriously enough is we are not convinced of the consequences of it." In another manner of speaking, we do not treat sin as seriously, definitively and decidedly as we ought to because we don't think it is a big deal and we do not think that we have a lot to lose.
A few days ago whilst focusing on the latest soccer news I was browsing from my phone, I kind of got lost in my own little world. From the television, there was music playing, at a level from the other room I was in I could easily hear every word at first, but as the... Continue Reading →
HiSo today I am going to be expounding on what I shared as the year’s theme verse means to us in our lives, to our dreams and hopes for the year as we continue on this walk in life. As I will be sharing this as a message from the heart of the Father to... Continue Reading →
Hi. So as we go towards the end of the year, we get around the point where we are reflecting on the days past, contemplating a future to come as well as for some begin to inquire of God for a word for the new and upcoming year but today, I am going to share... Continue Reading →
Hi. So today I want to talk about the last stronghold that I intended to talk about on this series and yes it is about the will of God. More specifically, the incorrect perception of it that so defines life we have robbed ourselves of enjoying the benefits that come from knowing God. Whenever anything... Continue Reading →
Hi.Today I want to introduce a new series and the theme of which comes from the place where Paul writes and says "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds " (). I am prompted by two main reasons; the first being the strongholds... Continue Reading →
Love I want to continue today has a language both to the loved and from the one who loves. It is a language that is almost like music, that resonates within itself with tones of peace, confidence and freedom and I desire to share a bit more on this.Love is patient, it is kind, it...

As I have spoken before, the Word of God is a sword-the sword of the Spirit and like any weapon, a sword is to be wielded fearlessly and boldly-with the best way of expressing being possibly to say in the hands of the greatest warriors, a sword ceases to be a separate entity but it...

Many a time we as humans will take back our word. We will say I didn't mean that or I was only joking and the like. We will say or promise things we have no intention of fulfilling and as a result a trail of pain and heartache is often in our wake: the story of the promises we did not keep and the careless words we flung like gravel into our loved one's faces. But not so with God.Not a single word God speaks is in vain; not a single one escapes without a purpose or plan. There is a scripture in the book of Psalms that says Even above His name has the Lord exalted his word. At first I thought is a theological farce when I heard someone say even above His name has the Lord exalted His Word. It didn't think it made sense and it was technically blasphemy in my eyes. Now try to imagine how it blew my mind when I realised that actually it was a verse in scripture that if memory serves me right is actually repeated a few times in scripture. At that moment; the significance of the Word of God assumes a whole new dimension in your mind. The Word of God is more than mere words: it is the decree of an all powerful King of His will that no force on Earth, in Heaven and under the Earth can stop. It expresses how the most powerful being intends to exert His influence and for its execution; there is Spirit of God-He who hovered over the formless Earth and effected the execution of the word of creation: who overshadowed Mary and the virgin conceived and who saw to it that at the Word of Jesus, at that of the prophets before Him and the apostles and saints after was made to come to pass. Never is there a moment when without purpose the word escapes His mouth.In the book of Isaiah, the word of God is compared to the rain and to the snow (dew in another translation)-Neither of which can fall and fail to result in the joyous and sensuous response of nature; from the plants that become lush and green, to the refreshing sharp scent of rain on soil that is refreshingly surreal. It... Continue Reading →
A few years ago, a tv personality a favourite of mine at that time Dr Phil said during one of his talk shows that “Monsters live in the dark.” Through years of depression, low self-esteem, fractious relationships and pornography addiction, I personally got to know what this meant. However, I have also discovered that there... Continue Reading →
The Word of God in Ephesians in verse 17 is described as a Sword, a sword of the Spirit when Paul is outlining the armour of God; and because we do not use swords nor are we familiar with this imagery, it is easy at times to miss out on what this means. The sword... Continue Reading →
