No One Serves God At A Loss?



I've heard Spiritual Directors reiterate the above epigram..."No one serves God at a loss." From all I've deduced, it should be rephrased as, "Overall! No one serves God at a loss."

Anchor Scripture: {2Timothy 3:12}
"Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." 

Serving God is not for the feeble minded. This is why a consistent renewal of the mind is required for the grandiose race ahead.

While thriving to thread in the path of Christ Jesus, there'll be serial rejections, blasphemy, hate, segregation, and all shades of negativity. And just like Apostle Paul, you'll work your fingers to the bone, up half the night moonlighting so that you don't become a burden to others. But after the storm, a pricey reward invigorating God's glory will be accrued.

Uninterestingly, no one explicitly detail the gravity of ''losses'' that tags along with working with/for Christ.  No wonder Jesus wept for the cross to pass over Him, no wonder Elijah was suicidal, no wonder Moses broke the tablet containing the Ten Commandments and struck the rock twice out of frustration, no wonder Jonah fled until he was apprehended, no wonder Saul hid in garbage until he was made king of Israel.

Also note that the journey is not for the swift, nor the battle for the strong, nor by natural abilities, because whatever is strengthened can be weakened.

Have you resolved to working for/with god? Painstakingly ignore the distracting messes in between as you fix your tender eyes on the trophy, violently reaching out to grasp it.

Remain consistent, Work strategically, Pray to God to connect you with the right association. Only then will working for God be richly rewarded, hence making you forget all the temporal losses.


Have a Great day Fam!

A Builder Is More Valuable Than The Building



As little as a builder seems to appear while standing next to a high rise building, he still remains the most important personality.

In a situation where a building collapses, only the builder has the ability to reconstruct it. The sole responsibilities of rehabilitating a dilapidated building rests on the builder as well. With a designated architectural plan, identical buildings can be recreated.

Anchor Scripture: {Hebrew 3:3}
"A builder is more valuable than the building."

Are you loaded with iconic potentials but yet to be identified by your destiny helper? Don't give up! You're a builder. You're not just a number in the census, You're an important personality.

Ever wandered how a diligent hard-worker who once lost everything he laboured for bounces back to his feet and does greater exploits?

Accrue yourself with the position of a builder and erect empires that'll work in your favour.


Have a Productive day Fam!

Are You Investing In The Devil?


God says, I've created man in my image and likeness, but the devil manipulatively interjects, saying, If you eat this fruit, you'll be like God.

God says, I'll send down rain to water your seed, but the devil aggressively counters, saying, Not before my eyes! I'll send plagues to your seed.

God says, I'll give you double for your trouble, but the devil rebukes it, saying, Never! I'll devour you like a roaring lion.

Anchor Scripture: {1Peter 5:8-10}
"Be sober, be vigilant; because the devil your adversary walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered for a while, perfect establish, and settle you. 

Mitchelle was an industrious young lady who quit her paid job to pursue the vision God placed in her heart. As she worked tirelessly to kick-start her divine mission, she deemed it wise investing in a side business that'll yield her some returns to sustain her through the period of  her ''gainful toils''.
She made an apt decision of investing in Uber (a popular 21st century transportation company). unknown to her, instead of partnering with Uber, she invested in the devil.
An elderly friend of hers helped her sort for a Nigerian used vehicle because of limited funds to purchase a Belgium car which was the intended plan (she wished to start from her level). The Nigeria used car being purchased was quite pricey. Having done some spray jobs to cover the minor dents, the Vehicle inspection and Uber registration commenced in earnest.
From the moment the car was put into use, it gave trouble upon troubles; pilling up losses but never yielding tangible profits. Mitchelle changed three Uber drivers within the space of three months (including the messy dramas in between) and invested so much money trying to fix the supposed car because she eventually discovered that it was once an accidented car.
Each week came with new repairs, wiping away Mitchelle's savings. This young lady soon realized she had been investing in the devil! She soon made up her mind to sell off the vehicle. It hurt her greatly, but the assurance that all things will work together for her good eventually through Christ Jesus, kept her going.  She's aware that her many investments may not be realized after the sale of the vehicle, but she's confident she'll do exploits in her divine mission, and in the business idea God placed in her heart.

Over the years, I deduced that God patiently waits for us to quit investing in the devil so that He can step in and heal our troubled hearts, hence giving us course to laugh heartily once more.

Know when to yell a big NO to the devil and his antics.

It is  never going to be easy letting go of a pricey possession/investment in anticipation that things may get better eventually. Be sensitive enough to obey the inner spirit!

At the inception, Mitchell had a persistent nudge to discontinue with the purchase of the vehicle, but the agent (whom the devil manipulated) kept persuading her to oblige; insisting it was a great deal. If only she stood her ground, reverse would have been the case.

The devil comes to steal, kill and to destroy. It is true that in every new level, there's a new level. But in all, learn from the lessons taught by devil which was permitted by God.

More so, wave every sentiment and pray fervently over any business deal or trade you hope to invest in, because some deals may be demonic investments. Be vigilant! Be strategic! Watch! and Pray!

#Work diligently, trust God to replace whatever the canker worm has eaten from you, and watch Him multiply your gainful investments.

Have a Rewarding week Fam!

The 3Ps




Prophesies are utterances from Prophets inspired by God. These divine utterances are manifested at the appointed time. No matter how long it takes, it still comes to pass. From my study, I deduced that prophesies include prayers and paradigm. Prophesies, Prayers, and Paradigm are intertwined. For the purpose of easy assimilation, I'll term them The 3Ps.

- Prophesy constitute gainful forecast or factual prediction. e.g (Isaiah 32:4-5) "No more will fools be made celebrities, nor crooks be rewarded with fame. For fools are fools and that's that."

- Prayer constitute defense mechanisms imbibed to sustain prophesies and ward off demonic antics. e.g (Isaiah 38:2)- "Hezekiah turned away from Isaiah and, facing the wall, prayed to God." (Isaiah 49:8)- "God said, when it time is ripe, I'll answer you, when victory is due, I will help you.''

- Paradigm constitute admonitions, or standard for living when a prophetic word has been uttered. e.g (Isaiah 30:8-9) ''So, go now and write all this down. Put it in a book, so that the record will be there  to instruct the coming generation.''

All the devil tries to do is oppose the modus operandi laid down by God to give men direction.

Hence;

In the place of Prophesy, the devil retrospects, manipulates and terminates future ploys.

In the place of Prayers, the devil attacks and disengages.

In the place of Paradigm, the devil introduces lawlessness.

After the reign of the prophets in the old testament, God opened the office of Prophets to every human made in his image and likeness.-(Ephesians 4). He made humans speaking beings; a little bit lesser than Him.

At that, the authority to speak life or death into our situation has been vested in every individual.

Just like Jesus in Mark 4:32, be forthright, confident and authoritative about your prophesies and watch your profiting appear to many at the appointed time.


Have a Fab day.

An Ode To My Dear Mum!





I spent her last days with her, it's somewhat relatable why I'm always in my feelings each time the thoughts of never going to see my mum again creeps in.

I hope you like the Ode I composed for her...

It goes thus;

She used to be my gainful stalker
Cute mum, sleek mum, extraordinaire overtaker
Oh death! How dare you forsake her?
Now she's gone to rest with the maker

Ye devil you're happy now?
Ye storm you're settled now?
Yet torments you disembodied now?
Wish the hand of time could roll back right now

But hey! Life transcends in stages
Tantamount to queen and sages
Swiping through the pages
Only the memories can be locked up in cages

Aye! I know she secured in my heart
Leveling every crooked path
Eliminating every evil dart
Acknowledging my profitable thrives with several pats

I miss you Mum. I love you Mum. I got you Mum, even in death Mum

#Kisses from the other side.


Yours Truly,

E.Hillz

INSECURITY


 Nobody is permitted to make you feel insecure without your permission.

Anchor Scripture: {James 3:16}
"For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there."

Insecurity is tantamount to envy and other evil exhibition.

In my teenage years, I battled with the most obscene type of insecurity. Whatever negative remark people made about me threw me into my shell.

Affiliating with the rich kids was an impossible thing for me, I thought I was less of a human being than they were. Their vacation tales intensified the squash.

I remember one Adeyojun boy telling me I had fat legs. His unruly words made me feel bad about my legs until I gained admission into university and many endorsed my legs commending it as; full, smooth, straight and beautiful. They even told me they wished they had my pair of legs. It made me feel good about my legs!

Also, during my secondary school days as a boarding student, a female roommate occasionally made jest of my boobs, she said they were small and that my future husband would have a bad time accepting me (most girls/women pass through this awful phase). It made me feel bad about my body, until later in my university days when a female friend who saw me undressing said I had beautiful perky firm boobs. She said hers caused her so much back pain and discomfort and wouldn't mind trading hers for mine. Funny right?
Ironically, the guys were always on my case. My female roommate in boarding school lied. Every positivity I was surrounded with boosted my self esteem.

Likewise, most fat people deal with acute insecurity. Petite and broke guys are not excluded from the equation.

As I began to mature and larch in the word of God, I began to feel great about my body and general composition. Knowing I was the reflection of God's image and receiving several commendation that I was beautiful made me regret my insecure days as a teenager.

"Comparison breeds insecurity issues that were never issues in the first place."- Ellahillz

Only people dealing with complex or insecurity issues undergo plastic surgeries to looking nothing like God but everything like another person.

It is low self esteem to envy others!

Not everyone will like you, but those who will, will do that like their life depends on it. Quit the battle, everyone can't like you. And if they do, then there is a serious problem on ground that shouldn't be neglected.

When you realize every individual is unique in their differences and made in the image and likeness of God, you'll become unapologetically comfortable in your skin, hence focusing on your strength and ignoring your weakness.

Remember Moses was a stutterer and Paul had a thorn in his flesh. Their imperfect-perfect-flaws worked in their favour and distinguished them. Imagine if they wallowed in discontent, envy and gross comparison, history wouldn't have been fair to them.

Eliminate every shade of insecure trait and find solace in the arms of God who promises to give eternal security.

Insecurity kills all that is beautiful.

Don't Run Errands Connected With Your Old Life

 
                           
 It's been proven that most people who run errands connected with their old lives end up obliging to the old lifestyle they resolved never to indulge in.

Anchor Scripture: {Romans 6:13}

"Don't even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life. Throw yourself wholeheartedly and full time - remember, you've been raised from the dead!- into God's way of doing things."

From the above anchor scripture, we understand that running a little errand connected with your old life makes you vulnerable to the devil. The devil isn't looking for a large opening to execute his ploy, he is looking for the tiniest loophole to take advantage of. Be careful!

A certain young lady who opted out of prostitution a.k.a runs and gave her life to Christ while she waited on Mr Perfect to tag along in anticipation of a befitting end. This lady was doing progressively well but failed to do away with her old friends who still continued in the prostituting business. She continued to house them each time each time they were in town.

Soon, greed began to set in. She became envious of the huge sum of money her friends realized each time they set out for ''The Easy Virtue Life''. She was surrounded with bad air and negative vibes who polluted her new godly ways, gradually, she began to deviate until she fully returned to her old ways and is not sorry for actions.

Which ill habit did you resolve not to engage in at the beginning of the year but failed woefully trying to keep up with? Which illegal business did you resolve to quit but you're still addicted to staying because of the juicy returns? Which relationship did you do away with only to be back at it because of the fear of remaining single?
It's time to wave an eternal goodbye and allow God rule, because, the devil unrelentingly attacks every commitment made with God. Don't be a victim.

Have a Fab day Guys!
