Seek first the Kindom of Heaven.


But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33–KJV

Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.”

Revelation 16:15–NLT

Jireh is enough


Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

John 14:23-24—NIV

Walking in Jesus’ footsteps is not impossible.


Every Christian I know hopes to walk in Jesus’ footsteps. But walking in the steps of Jesus Christ is a mammoth task though not impossible. When you read and imagine how Jesus conducted himself during His time on earth, it seems anyone could dedicate their life to living like Jesus. Jesus said we would do what he did once he left and even more.

I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same and even greater works I have done because I am going to be with the Father.

John 14:12–NLT

So what do you think is holding us back? Until the Holy Spirit transforms us into a new creation, we are going to continue to fall short because the Bible says:

Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Corinthian 5:17–KJV

So only the new you can fit into Jesus’ footsteps. If Apostle Paul did, you could do it too. Of course, you may never be able to perform miracles. But that is not a requirement to be in the company of Jesus Christ.

God’s miracles do not come with drama.


You have often heard it said, “God works in mysterious ways.” And you have wished to see a miracle all your life. But the truth is, you want a miracle that brings drama.

Of course, you would like to see the dumb talk, the blind see, and the lame walk because those miracles would get a lot of attention, drama, and astonishment. But the miracles happening around you and in your community every day get no attention.

For example, you are traveling on the highway, obeying all the traffic laws, and observing the rules of a good driver. Then, suddenly an erratic driver cut you off. But through the grace of God, somehow you managed to escape with no incident, and instead of thanking the Lord for the miracle, you started to curse at the other driver.

All you wanted was to get your hands on the stupid driver. You fail to see the miracle because there was no drama surrounding it.

The young man, whom a struggling widow helped out when he was a child, decided he would help pay her monthly bills when he learned she was struggling.

Those are some of God’s mysterious works that happen daily in our communities. But you’ll never hear about them because God’s works are not surrounded by drama.

God is in my story.


I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 121–KJV
