A SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM

A SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM

As a Christian, your life is a solution to someone in trouble. You should build your Christian life around this principle, knowing that we serve God when we help our fellow brother.

Our position in Christ Jesus is enhanced each time we help our fellow brother. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 25:40, 45, ‘Whatsoever you do or you fail to do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me’. In other words, Jesus was saying here, ‘I have no farm where I expect you to work for Me or an office where I expect you to help Me in checking files. My office and farm are your fellow brothers’.

We are called to respond to all human needs for that is what love entails. We should see giving to others as an assignment from God. When you see giving as an assignment from God, you cannot afford to fail God.

No matter your level in life, you are a solution to a problem. Every person God created is a solution to someone in trouble for God has not created anyone that does not have something to give – something big or small to plant.– TB Joshua sermon

A TRIAL OF FAITH

1 Peter 1-7

A TRIAL OF FAITH

There comes a time in our lives where we feel as if the world around us is coming to an end. It is in critical situations like this, that we know who is a man of faith.  Just because you are a Christian does not mean that Satan cannot attack you because anything close to Jesus receives attack.

The question is, are you prepared to face him? That preparation has to do with mind management. What do I mean by ‘Mind management’? Look at the case of Joseph, for example: When Joseph was thrown into the dry pit, we never read that he started crying or that he lost his faith or that he started blaming God! All we know is that he stood his ground because there was a voice in his heart that kept him, encouraged him and gave him strength to overcome the situation in the dry pit. That was why Joseph was not looking down, but he kept looking up at the beautiful work of God.

In summary, Joseph’s Journey started from his father’s house to the dry pit; from the dry pit to slavery; from slavery to the prison and from the prison to the throne. At last he found himself in the position of influence and he was able to re-unit with his family. His life’s experiences teach us two things:

  • No matter how long a lies is sustained, truth will someday prevail.
  • The position of influences must begin with suffering.

It began with a wound – being sold into slavery – and he became a pearl of usefulness (Genesis 37: 23-33). – TB Joshua sermon

JOY IN TRIBULATIONS

James 1:2-4

Joy in Tribulations

At the point of misfortune, Satan is there; ready to use our situation as a bait to trap us to eternal ruin. Satan is there asking, “Where is our God? Why are we suffering? Why don’t we curse God and die?” But know that, in the mind of God, we are created to be a successful person. (Jeremiah 29:11).

God never promised to keep us away from trials but He Promised to see us through. Through our crises, God is what we need Him to be. He’s ready to go through the dry pit, slavery, prison, fire the valley of the shadow of death with us.

As Children of God, God chooses what we go through; we choose how we go through it. So, if you are suffering, cheated, humiliated, hated, sad, poor or in despair, remember: No wound, no pearl. No pain, no gain. No test, no promotion (James 1:2-4). – TB Joshua sermon
