He Said,” It is finished”, not that He is finished

October 16, 2012 Leave a comment

Though they might take Isaac’s well that he spent all that effort digging but it did not mean he was finished it just meant he had proven he was fruitful and now he had to show he could multiply.

On the cross as he lay there dying he declared it is finished but it did not mean he was finished it just meant he was moving to another level. The seed may die in the ground but soon it will break through the soil to reveal its glory in a tree of life. Though a generation may perish in a desert it does not mean the nation is doomed, it just meant they had multiplied enough to find dominion for the next generation, Jericho was going to go down. It is finished does not mean you are done it just means that for this level you have done what you could it is time for another level of greater glory.

When they took away his well of water, it was not time for him to despair but rather it was time to prove that he could multiply. Sometimes the place you are in might get too hot or cold so that you move to another place to create greater blessings and find greater favor. Multiplication cannot happen until one fruit gives itself up to form the seed for the next generation of fruits. From one seed a nation can be born, so Abraham though today you look like fool tomorrow they will call you father of nations.

Your friends might banish you from their social circles, but if you stick to what you know then yes it is finished that you are no longer with them but you are certainly not finished because sooner than later you will have a bush experience, Moses. Sooner than later you will rise and not only will you have friends in a nation but God shall be your friend that you have conversation with. The stone they reject will always become the foundation stone. Before his death he only had twelve disciples but on his resurrection he had millions of disciples. For a moment they look at you and say you are finished but God has a plan. They might say you don’t have a plan but suddenly you will rise and a giant you will slay. Your brothers and sisters might have left you in the wilderness to tend to sheep but if you hold on to what you believe they will soon come to serve you. Left to die they will see you strong and healthy on the throne, Joseph.

It is finished means it is over by their standards but by God’s standard it is the beginning of something new, it is the multiplication of a fruit that everyone despised. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe, let them fight you for what you believe in but remember this, every night has a morning, in the end of it all, truth will always outlast the lies. Jesus on the cross declared it is finished, but he was not finished, he was just implementing the next level of His plan. Likewise whether they took your business, destroyed your work, laughed at you, embarrassed you or disliked you, carry on with what you do best, resurrect and soon they will know that it was finished but you were not finished.

Peace be Still

July 3, 2012 1 comment

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.

We will not fear for we know we are not fear, we are not called by fear neither do we answer to the name of fear. Yes the storms may roar and the waves may crash on us with such violence yet we will stand strong for we are not called to fear neither are we acquainted to fear. We are a special people that have dined with wisdom and seen knowledge for we know that all things are in their seasons. There is nothing new in storms; neither is there anything different about violence. In ages and in times it has all happened before, us being within it is a circumstance but it does not define who we are. Show me something new in fear I will show you a lie. The earth turns daily in its age but still we maintain, peace, be still.

Disappointments will occur, sometimes things will go short, life will cease and days will be numbered but fear, fear is not in our understanding. We understand the times and the seasons but a season of fear we have never seen it or understood it. Our minds are stilled in peace, in a balance of life for we have understood that all things are, what is, is and what is not, is not. If a mountain be moved so be it, but if it stays so be it, what will be, will be, what will not, will not. Life is an event, we create what we choose, and what we may not choose may occur, these are all events. Probability will occur in time, time and chance will exist but peace that is something that stays forever.

Though our friends may panic, though the world may stop and the money may burn we maintain that peace, be still. We stand in the boat of life and command peace, we stand bold in our minds assured of greatness and success. We have seen that the greatest power is love and peace is love. In our faith we know that that peace is but ours for the taking. In our understanding we have seen that even in the hurricane there is an eye for peace, in the midst of the battle there is a ground for peace, in the midst of the fire there is an opportunity to quench the fire, in the heat of the argument the gentle answer will find the peace, in the stampede of the animals the security of life will bring calmness, in the trials of the life there is a judgment that can bring peace.

There is a secret which one finds in peace, the deep calls to the deep, in the height of every waterfall; behind the falling waters is a place of peace. Do not look for fear for surely you will find it rather find the place for peace, fight not to continue the violence but fight to establish the peace. There is a good war and an evil war, the good war fights for peace, the evil war fights for supremacy. In your heart there is a place of peace, when you find it spread it to your mind, influence the spirit and teach the body the way of peace, in time you will realize the power of calmness. In calmness the heavens and the earth were formed, within the peace, babies were born and in the silence, peace is established. He that is void of wisdom despises his neighbor: but a man of understanding holds his peace.

Personality Makes the Difference

August 12, 2010 Leave a comment

There is a lot of talent in world, people with amazing skills and things they are able to do. If you look at all the talent shows which happen all over the world.  Just as there is amazing talent there is amazing beauty also. The tabloids can talk about the most beautiful women or sexiest guy but the truth is there is always someone better out there. What then separates who gets famous and who does not? What defines who is more noticed than the other?

If we look at the music industry there is a lot of people who can sing. The difference in who makes it and who does not often comes to who has more personality. The person who stays visible is the one who has a bright personality. Not all the artists who are famous are the best singers in the world, but they have a great way of expressing themselves which makes them stand out. Some people who are famous you actually wonder how they became famous yet they have nothing to offer but when you look closer you see it is just the personality.

A personality that is going to make it in life is not one that sits and just takes it, it is someone who is able to recognize what they want and go for it. It is a person who is not afraid to stand up and make things happen. Personalities are people who have an opinion and who are as shrewd as a serpent so to speak. It is like a chess game where you have all these pieces to use and have one objective which is ti kill the king. If you forget the objective and over concentrate on the other smaller pieces or so you soon forget the objective and in no time at all you are cornered and it is you who lose. In life one has to play their pieces ever so carefully knowing when to speak and when not to speak. Keeping to the objective but still handling all the things which are there in life.

You can have all the talent in the world but if you never step up in personality you will never achieve anything outside. You need to be prepared to make things happen for yourself. Talent is not meant to be buried but is meant to be used so that all can see and appreciate. Talent is something useful not just for the person who has it but for all the people who can see it. It is like the light of the world someone needs to turn it on.

Creating Tomorrow Today

July 27, 2010 Leave a comment

So much is spoken of tomorrow we almost forget that today does exist. We spend most of our time worrying about tomorrow we forget to give today its due attention. The success of today is a result of a yesterday which was a today and the success of tomorrow is a result of today which was applied. In order for us to become successful today we need to live in the now moment.  The now moment is not a general term but rather is a specific time and place. It points to what you are doing and where you are. It speaks of why you are doing something and how you are doing it.  It sees today and what you believe in.

Most of the time we are so carried away about the impossibilities of today we put never really live to fight for today or to attempt to achieve what matter to us today. At the end we are always looking to future which never happens all because we forgot that tomorrow exists in today.

There are some very basic things we need to achieve in order to live in the now moment to create a good tomorrow. Firstly we need to understand who we are and what we want. Most of us live our lives in an identity crisis which is why we end up trying almost anything which comes our way or in the near future we regret our earlier decisions when we finally discover who we are and what we really like. One needs to sit down and be honest with ones self as to who really am I? Are you what people say you are or are you who you believe you are? Or are you just lost in the many definitions given to you by the world such that at the end of the day there really is no real you just a name tag or job title?

Secondly it is important to see what you want not tomorrow but in today. In other words it is important to see the reality of what you want to create in what you are doing today. For example, a person may want to be a musician, if they just sit around thinking about it they may never get there, what they really need is to sing and practice and believe they are almost there. One has to live always expectant of the good things which will come. Our every “Now” action must be geared towards the vision that we have so that we are not wasting our time. what you do today must be a reflection of what your vision is all about. The way you talk, your ideas, your dreams and interests must at least be an image of what your tomorrow holds. When people look at you or rather when you look at yourself you must at least see an image of what you are achieving today in creating tomorrow.

Finally one needs to have belief today and not tomorrow. One must believe that whatever it is they are working on, even though it has not shown up, is the seed hence it has shown up. Most of us put off our belief for tomorrow and say things like, “When I get the money I will be ready” or things like “It not yet time to think about such things”. When we do that we put off the existence of tomorrow from today. We need to believe in today to create a tomorrow.

The Most Persistent


Everyone has a vision and a dream. At the same time every dream and vision has its challenges or effort required to make it happen. For every dream that exists you can be sure that nature rewards the most persistent. The ones that refuse to give up and the ones that are always looking for a solution to their challenges are the ones that get the joy of receiving their dreams come true. If we ever listen to stories from people who are now making it in society we hear stories of hard work and belief that they would make it. We hear of the many things they had to go through in order to get to where they are today. Every dream requires persistence especially in the face of opposition. Dreams do not come true because we dream them, dreams come true because we dared to believe in them.

This Boat Life

May 18, 2010 2 comments

Your life is a like a boat traveling on an ocean. Around it is water which stretches for miles on miles. No matter what the size of the boat is, you need to make sure you have the right people with you after all it is a long journey. Have the right compass that shows you direction. Have a map for which you know your destination. Be able to tell the sings of a storm coming and when there is going to be calm. Have adequate rations and of course know how to fish. If you lack these sooner or later you will have to dock on an island because you could not get to your destiny due to lack of direction, map, food rations and fishing skill.

When storms come you do not go with them you fight to keep your journey’s direction. When other boats pass you by on their own journeys you just do not follow them in case they are going to a different direction. Know your boat and its capabilities. Make sure your sails are working and the type of conditions they work in. Only anchor in permanently when you arrive at your destination. When it seems like you are running out of food learn how to fish and how to get from islands nearby by do not anchor permanently.

Keep you compass in working order, and your map close to you. Never let it out of your site. Remind yourself where you are going and keeping checking your map and compass. Only go in the direction that will get you to your destination. Do not be swayed by the winds and the currents of the oceans. Fish where you can but do not make it your career or you will be tempted to become a fisherman for other people. Learn the ocean and the atmosphere around you. Understand the winds and the nights, the days and the mornings. Right your journey down in your captains log book. Do not lend your captaincy of your ship to anyone else except you.

Be on the look out for pirates who want to hijack your boat and your crew. Protect your crew with all your might. Empower everyone so that they have the same vision. Make sure your crew has the same visions. Life is like a boat on a vast sea, are you prepared.

Stick to the Outcome

April 8, 2010 Leave a comment

Sometimes greatness is not achieved by sticking to the plan but by sticking to the outcome. Our lives are centered around a world which is constantly changing. Sometimes you may need to leave your country, change your job, attain a new qualification, or just change the way you do things. Your plan might have been based on a community in a certain country and then circumstances in that country change, it does not mean that it is the end it just means you have to figure out a new plan to get to the objective. It will not always be the plan that matters but it will be the outcome. If you see the outcome then you will always make your plans around that. So just because your situation changes rendering your plan ineffective does not mean that the objective should change.  The tactics can change but the outcome must always remain the same.
