Flash back on 2012
2012 is a year i would never forget in a hurry in my life. Not because i had lots of challenges that i was confronted with, but rather i had some strange experiences while i was going thru the storms of life. This year God taught me lots of things i never knew in my walk of faith and some i had known on the surface but had never actually put them in practise which had also deprived me of the priviledge of seeing the faithfulness of God over his promises to his children. Begining from year 2011 God taught me 'the power of confessing his word' even in the mist of very challenging situations of life, and in the year 2012 i had the opportunity of practising the word. I must be sincere, it was never funny or that easy, but with God i pulled thru. I could remember running into a huge financial loss, i still stayed relaxed emotionally while i kept confessing his promise to me that "all the father had given me i have lost none..", and i backed it up with the positive confession, "there shall be no loss in my life". It was amazing and a whole new experience to me. I initially felt, 'hey, this is crazy! How can i be confessing what am not? Brethren the result of those positive confessions was just out of this world. Firstly my blood temperature was normal and i had joy filled my heart. Although i had times when my creditors would come calling for their money and my heart would want to start skipping for fear, and at that moment i would just make another positive confession saying, "i am a lender to nations and not a borrower or a debtor". When i do this with faith in my heart, God would then drop a wisdom idea in my heart on what to do reagarding the calls from my creditors. Another wonderful experience of 2012 is that God taught me on the power of the mind. I realised that my mind is so powerful that whatever i am now or would ever be was played out in my subconsciousness and i gave my approval for its manifestations . The devil can't do a thing against me if i didn't approve of it intentionally or otherwise in my mind or imaginations. I learn't in this year that if i can control my thoughts or imaginations and just think christ thoughts only, then my life would be filled with love, power and of a glorious daily exeperiences. So i did gaurd my heart jealously in 2012. Though i had periods when it was very challenging to articulate my thoughts. I had difficulty trying to put together my imaginations cos they were running wild because of the numerous challenges coming my way from virtually from different areas of my life. At this period the holy spirit moved me to use the power of God's words to knock off every negative imaginations flooding my mind unhindered. He told me that Jesus overcame the negative manipulations and suggestions of the devil by quoting the holy scriptures that relates with the subject at hand. I remember an incidence when the devil was constantly painting the pictures of a poverty striken future and a tomorrow that would otherwise be best described as a failure or a waste. The holy spirit quickly gave me a scripture which i constantly quote loudly especially in the early hours of the morning between the hours of 1am to 3am. And the scriptures are "i know the thoughts that i think towards you, they are the thoughts of good and not of evil, to give me an expected end". Also another very uplifting promise i do confess is the one that says 'Jesus became poor that i might be rich'. I had other positive words i always speak to myself constantly which are these; i can't be poor, i am very rich regardless of what the situation might look like. I am sound in every areas of my body; cos sickness or disease can't dwell in my body. I am a lender to so many nations of the world including the 'developed nations' of the world. I can never owe any man living or dead. Its impossible for me to die young because long life is my portion. I do set out time consciously to speak to my life and situations because if i dont, there is the tendency for my life and situation to be responding to other voices out there in the world without me consciously knowing it which i equally gave approval to because i refused to reject them by keeping a sealed lips. In this year 2012, i learn't to believe in God wholly and trust him completely. And lastly, this is the year i received divine visitations. In january i had an angel visit me somewhere in egbeda, Nigeria and by November Jesus visited me also with some spiritual instructions that is yielding unending testimonies not only in my life and family but also in the lives of million others all over the world. Praise God!
