Godly Mothers

A mother occupies a unique place in history. If there were no mothers, there would have been no sons and daughters, no society, no community and the entire world would have been very boring and stagnant.  However, the society has become a wonderful place because of mothers (Godly mothers), who have raised and are still raising Godly children.

A mother is so unique in creation that she can be considered as God’s perfection and the crown of His works, because after God created the woman, He rested (Genesis 2). The Bible celebrates motherhood and it teaches us that Godly mothers play a crucial role in God’s programme for the world.

The first woman was made a helpmeet; a companion and someone who was made to make completeness possible for the man.

What are the roles of a mother in the home?

The mother must first recognise the important fact that while Jesus is the head of the Church, the man is the head of the home.  Whenever this role becomes inverted, the home will be invaded by all kinds of unimaginable problems.

  1. Submission to husbands (Eph. 5:22-24) – Our submission should be in all things (not sinful), and not some things. A mother should reverence her husband at all times. Esther refused to behave like Queen Vashti, she did not take her position as Queen for granted, and she reverenced her husband.
  2. Wisdom in her dealings (Proverbs 14:1,3) – She does not depend on carnal wisdom but Godly wisdom with anything that concerns her home and she executes her plans prayerfully.
  3. Training up children – Good children cannot be trained in homes where roles are inverted.  The society looks up to the Church for guidance and direction as far as good homes are concerned. In Proverbs 31:27-28, for a woman to take good charge of the household, she must devote time and attend to the needs of the children.  Every mother must study the characteristics of a child at various points of their growth.  At every stage, they need to be guided, taught, supervised and nurtured properly.  A mother should place premium on training all her children.  If you are too busy to take care of and train your children, you are too busy to carry out your divine assignment. The Children are our future generations.
  4. The power of the tongue –The truth is that your husband and children are what you make out of them. You can make them either angels or devils through your speech.  As a virtuous mother, you should always speak positive words to your husband and children.  What you say either in public or in secret will evoke wellness, joy and peace in the life of your husband and children.
  5. A mother is a woman who works very hard – Whether you do a secular job or engage in business, you have many duties to perform as a homemaker. We should not allow the hustle and bustle of life to deprive our children of motherly love and affection.
  6. One of the greatest things a woman can do to affect the home, the Church and the community positively is intercession – The fervent prayer of a woman can touch the untouchables, change the unchangeable and soften the incorrigible. When a woman utilises the power of prayer, the sky cannot be the limit of her influence. Don’t ever get too busy that you have no time to intercede for divine intervention in your homes.  Lamentation 2:19
  7. The sphere of the woman should not be restricted to home and Church, she must exert positive influence over the community and her nation.  Matt 5:14 -The slogan, “Be heavenly conscious and earthly useless or irrelevant”, should not be our slogan. If God wanted us to completely avoid involvement in our society, He would have saved us and taken us to Heaven immediately. Judges 5:1

Finally, dear sister in Christ, we are living in perilous times and I therefore counsel you to spend much time seeking God’s face and depend on Him for grace and strength.  Are you conscious of any inadequacies? The Lord will turn your weakness into strength.  God is doing a new thing in these end times.  He is raising a new crop of Godly women and mothers.  He is releasing a new anointing for exploits in motherhood.  Receive a new anointing today for your life, family and children in Jesus’ Name!

Six Types of Giving

Abundance is not about what you desire; abundance is about what you do Proverbs 21: 25-26

  • TITHE: tithing is compulsory, obligatory, it is not optimal. It is insurance and security with God. If you don’t want your labour to be in vain, tithing goes straight to God. Lev 27: 30, all the tithe of the land is Gods.
  • OFFERING: “give it shall be given unto you”- Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthian 9:6, but remember this – if you give little, you will get little.
  • INVESTMENT IN THE KINGDOM BUILDING E.T.C: The word says there is no one who has invested anything in the kingdom who will not have one hundred fold more, now in this time and in the world to come eternal life – Matt 19:29. There is nothing you invest in the kingdom that is lost. Every given outside tithing is an investment. (Read Luke 18:29) That you have hundred folds in this world does not disqualify you from heaven, see Abraham. For God to manifest a hundred fold blessings upon your life in this time, all you need to do is become an addicted kingdom investor.
  • MINISTRYING TO THE POOR: The secret that Job discovered – Job 29: 1-13. Don’t despise the poor or you become one. When you become part of the joy of the one who is sorrowful, joy will not depart from your house. He that had pity on the poor lendeth to the Lord and that which he hath given will HE pay him again Proverbs 19: 17.
  • GIVING TO THE PROPHETS: Giving to those that ministers life to you make the grace of God to be multiplied to you. For example, He that receiveth a prophet in the name of the prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward (Matt 10: 11a) ministering to those who pour out grace unto you, makes God to pour out blessings upon your life.
  • GIVING TO PARENTS: Honour both your biological and spiritual parents by giving. “Honour your father and mother that your days may be long upon the land” Exodus 20: 12.

Hear me brethren, there is nothing that God design for you to hurt you, his commandment are not grievous. God is not planning to make life tough for you, He’s here to make life cheap for you. May you receive it in Jesus Name, Amen. Things were not working in Israel, the people vowed to God and He gave them rest round about. Vow to be committed to God with your means. It takes decision to have motion, it is time for financial motion in your life.

What Time Is It?

If you are a born again Christian the price for your wellbeing has been paid. Why are you not experiencing this redemptive welfare? Because God has left you a responsibility and until you under take this responsibility you do not enjoy the blessings. God is no respecter of persons. Where you are is not a plus compared to where you find yourself. Poverty is a universal citizen. Satan requires no visa to be anywhere. It does not matter where you are living, what matters is how you are living. I am glad to let you know that wealth is provided for in the Gospel.

That you don’t have does not mean it’s not there. How many of you will agree that healing is provided for in Redemption? But why are there so many sick people? Poverty is not God’s plan for you; poverty is part of the curses of the law and has been paid for, so you now have access to the blessings of Abraham. Your security is knowing your God and hearing His voice and fulfilling what He asks you to do. 

Genesis 8: 20-22; This is where the law of increase was enacted or established. It takes sowing to harvest. No sowing, no harvest. When you don’t give, don’t expect to receive. Many of us want increase but don’t agree with the process. For example; a farmer that does not put anything in the soil and expects harvest and begins to pray all manners of prayers, night vigils and fasting, his harvest will not come and if care is not taken the fasting and prayer may kill him.

Proverbs 21: 25-26; there are many things you are looking for but you may die in the process if you do not do what it takes to get it. Abundance is not what you desire, abundance is what you do. Proverbs 20: 4; everyone you see that has a reason for not giving has reasons to be poor. Every excuse for not giving is an excuse for being poor. Hear me, David was speaking, he said once I was young, now I am old, I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread. Begging is unrighteous. By whatever style it is unrighteous. You will not beg in Jesus name. Amen.

There is something you can do with your hand, for your hand to be blessed. If you want to remain refreshed let go. It is very important people of God to know that God has not change and there is nothing new under the sun.

Is there famine now? There was famine in the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Why should you complain that things are very hard now? In all their times they were distinguished in spite of famine. Abraham in the midst of famine became very rich in gold, cattle, male and female servants. Amidst famine, Isaac went forward and “waxed” strong until he became very great and the Philistines envied him. There was also famine in the time of Jacob and the bible says Jacob declares God has blessed me in everything. So don’t harass God by saying things are hard, this is not the first time that things were hard.  In Jacob’s time, money failed yet hardship was far from his tabernacle. So when there was inflation Jacob was increasing. Brethren, there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1: 9). Whatever was done then needs to be done now. If they prospered in time of famine, you can prosper now. All you need to do is to uphold the integrity in the covenant. It is nothing with God to bless, prosper or make rich but He is looking for able hands unto whom He would entrust the wealth.  

If you make yourself available by keying into this covenant, He would not hesitate to play His own part. As long as earth remaineth, seed time and harvest shall not seize. Financial bondage will only be broken when your position changes to fall in line with the word of God. Israelites were languishing in slavery in Egypt for 430 years, until they gave God His place they could not have their places. Exodus 4: 22; And God said Israel is my son, even my first born. And God said let my son go that they may serve me. When they were ready for God, God was ready for their liberty. When your commitment to God is established, God will eternally be committed to your liberty. Your greatness in this kingdom is tied to your quality of service. Your freedom is tied to your quality service. Not just being present but actively committed to the things of God. You might be there for twenty years but might not see what somebody who is there for one year has seen. It is not how long, but how well. If you serve God, He will free you. If you will not serve him, you may as well live in bondage. Service is the master key to liberty. Whosoever would be great among you, let him be the most servants of all.

There are two forces contending for your service. Jesus said, you cannot serve God and mammon. You cannot serve god and money. Mammon means money. A greater percentage of people on the earth today are purely living for money. In the morning, afternoon, at night, money has become the centre of their faculty. The bible says, those who love silver shall not be satisfied with it. The love of money equals idolatry. There is no man who can truly claim to be in love with God that money will matter to. Malachi 3: 7; Return unto me and i will return unto you. That is the foundation of abundance. When you return from your own way of doing things to His (God’s) own ways of doing things you have crossed over. You will cross over in Jesus name. Amen. If you will serve Him you will be free.

There is absolutely nothing you see around you today that God does not have more to offer. Exodus 4: 22; As soon as they returned to God, He also returned to them. Every time you return to God, He also returns to you and gets committed to your liberty. I PROHESY A MYSTERIOUS FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH FOR YOU THIS YEAR IN JESUS NAME. Everyone who is committed to serve God, God is committed to free them. If you will serve God with your means, God will be committed to you with his means. So, your commitment to Him is what determines your destiny with Him. Except a grain of seed fall into the ground and dies it abides alone, if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. Israel was committed and God became committed to them. When God is committed to your welfare brethren, you have crossed over.

For four hundred and thirty years Israel worked without wages but when they left Egypt, silver and gold became their luggage. God gave them favour, they plunged the land of Egypt, and they ruined their economy. They were paid in a single day for four hundred and thirty years labour. Brethren, I have never seen a man who is completely sowed out for God that never shine as a star on this earth. I have not met one who is all out for God and who is not all round successful. Exodus 8: 28; the farther you go, the brighter you become. Abraham took Isaac to mount moriah, he came back inheriting a whole generations of human race.  God said by myself have I sworn that in blessings I will bless you, in multiplication I will multiply you and by you shall all nations of the earth be blessed. The bible says wisdom makes the face of a wise man to shine and the boldness of his countenance shall be changed. WHAT IS WISDOM? Whosoever hears this saying of mine and shall do them the same is a wise man. And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn men to righteousness are stars of heaven forever and ever.

It is wisdom time for the church.  It is word practise time. So you hold the aces. Practising the word will make you shine as the stars. I am glad to let you know that some of you are about to stumble into some realm of wealth that would alarm your neighbours. You will become so attractive that men would hold on to your dress and say take me to this your God that has done you this well. Every time you see darkness, it is for God to distinguish His people. (Isaiah 60: 1-2). LET ME SAY THIS AGAIN THAT WEALTH IS NOT A PROMISE, IT IS A COVENANT. IT IS NOT CLAIMABLE BY PRAYER, IT IS NOT CLAIMABLE BY FASTING, YOU WALK INTO IT BY OBEDIENCE.

Brethren, it is worthy to note that commitment to giving is what provokes commitment to blessings. True riches are getting it when it is required. Not being stranded at any time. I DECREE OVER YOU THAT BEFORE YOUR NEEDS ARISE THE SUPPLY WOULD BE WAITING IN JESUS NAME. Amen.

 

Mind you, God is not looking for what you have; He gave it to you in the first instance. God will never need your help; He is your only dependable helper. You need God and you will always need Him. And to always receive from Him you just walk in obedience. 1 Chronicles 29: 2-3; using every resource at my command, I have gathered as much as I could  for building it – enough gold, silver, bronze, iron, wood, and great quantities of onyx, other precious stones, costly jewels, and marble. This is your time to be lifted, don’t miss it.
