MERCY SHOES

I was inside when I heard my mum call me Mercy! Mercy! With the same urgency I ran outside thinking I had won a lottery. On getting outside my mum had this look on her face (she knew she had called me as if I had won 10million naira). She had called me to tell me of a dream she had that night. In this dream of hers there was a lady and a man, the lady was very sick and there was a platform and children were standing on it with little boards. The man instructed that she should pick one of the children and whatever it is she sees on the board that would be her fate. This lady climbed to choose and picked the child with a bald head. Immediately she chose the child, what was written on the board was “bata anu” meaning “Mercy Shoes”. Immediately she walked away from the platform she was healed.

After she had told me her dream, the next thing she said was “Mercy, what do you think is the meaning of the dream” (at this time I really was wishing that Daniel and Joseph was born in this generation). This story reminded me of what God said in 1corinthians 1:26-31msg

Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” Among you, not many influential, not many from high society families.  Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hallow pretentions of the “somebodies”? That makes it clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God…

My mum said in her dream she was scared when they told the lady to choose, thinking she would pick the wrong person. She also said when she picked the child with the bald head. She was alarmed for the lady. This is how God also choses, not as a man would. Man may pick due to appearance, but God would pick due to the heart. Christ has come and the curtain has being torn, so you can come boldly into the throne of grace and obtain Mercy (Hebrews 4: 16). God’s Mercy speaks in all areas of life, in the dream it spoke Healing. I charge you to stop at grace boutique today and ask for Mercy Shoes.

The Mediator

Her hair was scattered, her nails were chipped, tears had already soiled her then beautiful face, leaving it pale and with traces of dripping mascara,  she walked almost as if she were running into the court, as she was about to enter through the gate, a huge hand suddenly descended on her shoulder’s. This was the conversation between her and the Man at the gate.

MAN AT THE GATE; ma’am what can we do for you?

SADE; I am to appear before the Judge today.

MAN AT THE GATE; ma’am you have to drop your entire excess load.

SADE; but I have to appeal my case here today

MAN AT THE GATE; we always enter through his gate with thanksgiving, and into his court with praise (Psalms 100: 4)

SADE; my whole life is coming to an end and you refuse me entry.

MAN AT THE GATE; just cast all your cares and burdens ma’am and you won’t have to go through this alone (1Peter5: 7).

SADE; why do I have to pass through you?

MAN AT THE GATE; because I am the way, the truth and the life (John 14; 6).

SADE; I don’t have a lawyer to defend my case.

MAN AT THE GATE; you have a high priest that is continually interceding for you and pleading your case (Hebrews 4: 13-14, 1John 2: 1-2). I know all that you are passing through (Hebrew 4: 15).

MAN AT THE GATE; you have come to the court of a Faithful, Righteous and Just Judge (Rev 19: 11, Proverbs 75: 2, Proverbs 31: 4)

MAN AT THE GATE; make your petitions known unto Him.

Sade followed the word and leading of the Man at the gate and everything turned around for her, every of her petitions were answered as she was able to present her case boldly (1 John 5:15, Hebrews 4: 16). This story is an illustration of what God is saying to us via the scripture. Today that Man at the Gate is Jesus (Rev 3:20), our most loyal friend and help in the time of need. He wants you to surrender every area of your live to him (spiritual, financial, academical, emotional, social…) Jesus Christ is the reason for our celebration. He came to give us peace not as the world would give us (John 14: 27). I see God’s peace surrounding all areas of your life as you surrender all to him in prayers. Halleluyah!

LITTLE BEGINNINGS – PART 2

As a Christian do you know that you can determine how you want your beginning to be like?  Little beginnings are not about starting small!!! What seems small to you might be big to the next person. It is about getting the starting point right, years from now you would want to look back at where you started from as being little, it shows that you have actually progressed. It is about starting right. This is what I could say I was able to learn from the beginning of all the beginnings;

Long ago in faraway Genesis 1: 1-3NLT there was a beginning;

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was

formless and empty and darkness covered the deep waters. And the

Spirit of the God was hovering over the surface of the waters.

Then God said, “let there be light”, and there was light.

ENGAGE THE HOLYSPIRIT; in the beginning God engaged the Holy Spirit in creation (Gen 1: 2). The Holy Spirit loves beginnings, bearing in mind that God is the Alpha and the  Omega (the beginning and the end ), the Author and finisher of our faith. Don’t forget that the Holy Spirit is our HELPER (John 14:16 KJV), the Greek word for comforter is Paraclete meaning one called alongside to help.

SEEK LIGHT; light signifies KNOWLEDGE. God said in (Hosea 4: 6) that His people perish for lack of knowledge. Seek God’s word and build capacity by seeking knowledge in what God has called you to do. That’s the part of CAPACITY BUILDING that was talked about in part 1.

SPEAK; man is a speaking spirit because he was made in the image and likeness of God, start speaking what God has spoken to you into reality, even when it doesn’t seem like it.

WRITE THE VISION; one quality that I appreciate in the life of Bishop David Oyedepo is ability to keep good record of what God has told him along with the date. Whatever God has told you write it down, for a time will come when you would have to refer to it and hang on to it in Faith. (Habakkuk 2: 2).

Easy said, than done …. Learn to lean on the one whose strength is made perfect in your weakness, knowing that it is not by your might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord (Zechariah 4: 6), it is also not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth but of God that shows Mercy (Romans 9: 16). King James English, May God help Us All!

 

Thanks for reading through, I appreciate your comments and suggestions, and I look forward to them. God Bless you.
