Kindly celebrate with me!

When I received this award in the category of personality of integrity, the scripture that came to me is
Proverbs 22 :1
A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, loving favor rather than silver and gold.

A good name is bankable and integrity is key for long term success.
Kindly celebrate with me, I left my job at a local bank 2 years ago and started my institution , and today we got this prestigious award!

The attempt to change the law!

Daniel 6:25-28
25Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you.
26I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, And steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end.
27He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
28So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

There are laws, rules, ordinances, regulations, and acts that must be adjusted for you to prosper. There are decrees and statutory instruments that must be adjusted to accommodate your progress and prosperity in the land that you are domiciled. I am into business, and there are laws in my nation that are designed for the saints to be slowed down. Other businessmen who don’t fear God can just cut corners and bribe, but the saints have to wait for a long period of time for them to acquire a trading license and other legal documents. Imagine if we have many God-fearing legislators, how can anti-God laws pass the parliament and sail through to the senate.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have to take charge and be actively involved in the legislation process and politics of our countries. The days of lying to each other that politics is ungodly are gone. If we can’t be part of the decision-making board, then your prayer can enter any space you are incapacitated to enter. There is no space or office that keeps our prayers out.
Verse 28 reads, “So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.”

It means after the decree plus the favor he had with the King, so many laws were relaxed to accommodate his purpose here on earth. Daniel started to prosper because the laws that were pro-God fearing people were now in place. This is not a small breakthrough. I know that Zambia declared itself a Christian Nation and there is a revival going on there, and we admire that.

Daniel 7:25-27
25He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.
26‘But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it forever.
27Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’

Now you have to understand that the enemy wants us to focus on petty issues whilst he holds things that matters. The enemy knows that he who controls the law of the land control the land,culture and the economy. Check the headlines, and you will see people who are trying to push for laws that are against the saints and God. They are parents being dragged to courts with their children for disciplining them children. So, my point is, as we pray, let’s ask God to send us into these offices of power.
Let the saints rise and take control.

When my wife leaves me with our 1-year boy

My wife’s aim is to keep the house clean and I have tried to support the aim. The challenge comes when we are alone with our one-year-old son. The favorite place for my wife is the kitchen, so are every fragile stuff and all the knives. My son likes to pull off all those stuff from the cupboard. So, I had to figure out a way of resolving the issue. I took a small string and tie the doors so that my son doesn’t have to reach out to the cups and break them.

Before I had a baby I was worried if I will be able to help out with diaper change and here I am, changing them. Actually, it was not only about that but every demand that is involved with raising and fathering a child.I have discovered that what i was worried about its nothing concerning the blessing we have in having this baby.God is providing for us at every stage.Occasionally, we just have to jump, yes we don’t know what will happen next, but when you get there God will help you.

Mark 16:3-4

3And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” 4But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was huge.

Besides sharing about my life , I thought I should bring out the lesson from that. Every so often, we are worried about many things. The disciples were worried about who was going to open the tomb, yet the tomb was already open. In life, we contemplate on many things because of the “what if(s) and what about(s)”. Just take the first step by faith.

Watch this, our faith should not be based on our feelings but the ability of God to intervene.

May you have faith to receive what God is about to do in your life.Stop giving excuses.

Have a blessed weekend!

My weekend in Pictures,The Baptism!

During the weekend I had a remarkable time, I will let you know what a learnt shortly but I want you to get the lesson first.

The importance of a father in the Lord

1 Corinthians 4:15
For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel

I have heard people claiming that I am self-made millionaire for me, it wasn’t like that ever since I was born I always had people who helped me, there is a lady I just connected with on the blog, and she pledged to intercede for me,
This is her blog
http://wendaswindow.com

Isn’t it an amazing testimony to just have people that you might never meet but they are praying for your success.
So i thought its an honorable thing to honor her in this post.

There are those who have and are opening doors of opportunities for me and today I want to acknowledge one of them who is my father in the Lord who raised me up, teaching me the word and all that is needed for someone to be sound in the word i met him when i was 18years now i have a wife and a baby and my own business and still, he is still pouring himself and investing so much in my life
This is his blog,
https://wilsonkatumba.wordpress.com

This is Pastor Wilson Katumba.

So, about this weekend

He exposed me and other sons into the practical Great commission experience. There is a difference between saying something from theory and from practical life.The revelation will not be the same so he allowed us to baptize about 23 saints.

Him in white, i’m the one in black then a fellow trainee in red

So he first trained us and demostrated the process then he said now go ahead

Immeadiately after learning then, i was already doing it without a degree or theology or bible school certificate.

This scripture came to me
John 4:1-2

1Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John 2(though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples),

So this why you need someone who walks with you in the Lord.These people they open doors for you and expose you to real ministry not theory.They allow you to stand on their shoulders and its you who will look good not them.You use there experience and you don’t have to go through the pain they went through to break certain limits.

May God help you to discover someone who will walk with you or if you have them may you honor them and appreciate them .

How to tell your story!

Power posing examples

In this post, you will learn how to come up with your story, you will learn to identify and appreciate what God is doing in your life and I will set you up for a victorious lifestyle.Sharing your own unique story is not boasting,alright!
We are now winding up the year,and I’m sure God was working in our lives.

Revelation 12:11
11 And they overcame him(the devil) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;

This is how the apostles overcame the enemy by giving testimonies of what Jesus Christ was doing through them and through the blood of the Lamp(Jesus Christ). Most unbelievers do not have great stories to tell, but they tell those stories with passion and most of their social media accounts have great following including us, and we have believed them and bought their stories. These people shape cultures and set trajectories of nations and our societies.

Write out your accomplishment list.

Lockdown achievements

Firstly, you can write a list of what makes you remarkable. Perhaps you won awards for sports, or perhaps you were involved in fundraising for your community or church. So, my recommendation is to actually start by writing them down and have them to hand, so you can share how successful you’ve been and how God came through for you.As for me during lockdown i enrolled for an online course to enhance my digital and social media skills

Send your texts or messages to your friends and colleagues.

Email or send messages to ten people who have either worked with you, or that are friends with you, and ask them: Can you tell me when was the last time I did something that helped you? And what was it? And then ask them: What are three things that you really value about me? And the fascinating thing is that most people get blown away by the emails they receive from people they work with or friend they know.

Create your confidence backpack.

One great way to increase your confidence around self-promotion or writing your testimony is to practice talking passionately about your skills, your talents and your past achievements. A classic skill or a classic technique for increasing your confidence is something we call a confidence backpack. Thinking of all the things that you’ve done that you’re really proud of, all of your achievements, imagine that situation, and you put it in a mental backpack. Then when you go into a situation where you are nervous, or you are concerned, remember all those times that you were able to do it before and believe that you will be able to do it again.

Try power posing.

Another great exercise is power posing with your feet firmly on the floor, and your hands on your hips. It changes your physiology, helps you feel more confident, so you can take on the world. It’s really great for stressful situations like interviews.

Here’s how I want you to think about your testimony. It’s something that you need to exercise, just like a muscle. To be able to talk about your skills, your strengths, your achievements, your accomplishments, in a way that feels right for you. And when you do that, eventually with time, you will own it, and you’ll be proud to tell the world what you’re great at.

I have shared this because I have decided not focus on bad things that the devil is doing, but to focus on the good our God is doing.And believe me brethren nothing wrong about sharing and telling people about your success and achievements as long as God is being glorified

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Dealing with soul fragmentation

A part(s)of a person’s soul(mind, will, and emotions) that is thrown away, lost or stolen and that now exists separately from and independently of that person. And this is all the work and mission of the devil to kill, still and destroy.
Now if you are experiencing these, or you know someone with the following symptoms you need to go through this devotional.

1Feelings of inadequacy.

2 Want to be alone or secluded most of the time.

3 You seem overly sensitive.

4You will feel unworthy of being loved.

5 False humility.

These symptoms can be found even in those who claim to be of the house of God,fellow believers. There are areas you can find yourself struggling. In fact, we all have areas we are working on we are work in progress, the only difference is some are working their salvation with fear and trembling. They have acknowledged that they have issues to work on, but some are in denial, hence the necessity of this post.

Let's  move on, the bible says
Proverbs 11:9b
But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.

The greatest deliverance that can happen to you is knowledge, yes we can have series of deliverance sessions in our churches but if people don’t have knowledge, the devil will have party immediately after those sessions.

I want to give you knowledge on how people get entangled in soul fragmentation crisis.

Ezekiel 16:4-5
On the day you were born your cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water to make you clean, nor were you rubbed with salt or wrapped in cloths. No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough to do any of these things for you. Rather, you were thrown out into the open field, for on the day you were born you were despised.

Countless things happen during pregnancy and infancy. That time we are vulnerable. There are words said with people in authority in our lives, like our parents. These people, due to ignorance, they reject us and say destructive words. These days,many fathers are refusing responsibility of their babies . Science have academic underpinnings that a baby in the womb can hear and sense that he/she is not loved and cared for, and so from birth the child grows with a sense of rejection. The day we are born, words are said and some can alter our destiny for good or bad. Don’t be fooled ladies and gentlemen words have power don’t be reckeless with them especially on issues of destiny.Your destiny can be sealed by just one word, we have many scriptures confirming the power of the tongue to give life or death!

Soul fragmentation happens even as we grow. Any violation that can be done to your mind, will, and emotions can destroy you. If you went through betrayal, death of the loved one, divorce or relationship break up, rejection, sexually abused, sexual vice, if you committed abortion, if you killed someone or watched someone being killed. If you were physically abused or emotionally abused, the list goes on, you need God to deliver you. Because that’s how you lost a part of you.

Why is this a big deal? Good question! When you have part of your soul captured by the enemy like that, you will not excel in other areas of your life, particularly that area concerned. For example, you can have lots of money, but you struggle with relationships. You can have control and disciplined in other facets of your life, but when it comes to sexual immortality you are found wanting, and you know are dying slowly. God wants to have access in areas of your life, and it’s hard because the enemy captured it and erected walls around it, that’s why it has become a sensitive area for you. No one can help you because you become defensive when the topic is raised. You literally take sides with your oppressor, the devil.
Any areas not submitted to God, the devil will have free reign in that area until that part has been released through appropriating the blood of Jesus Christ in that area.

Luke 19:9-10 NIV
Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
10For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”

Jesus Christ wants to seek and restore that area which is captured in the abyss by enemy and restore it.The control of your body should be transferred back to you and be submitted to God “Now”.Its amazing we are wise enough to protest against the government when our rights are infringed but we cannot protest against what the devil is doing with our souls!

Action Point
So as you finish now you can go ahead and talk to God, he can hear you, and He is near you, and He is everywhere. Just start by acknowledging that you need help in that area that’s standing out. He is the Holy Spirit pointing that area, it’s not your mind. Then you can tell Him that you are not in agreement with the enemy, and you need to be delivered. You sometimes see God doesn’t do much because it seems you are still in agreement with the demonic power, and you are not decisive about getting out of that situation. You will see how God will come through for you.
Praying that you will be whole spirit, soul, and body!

How to regain your hope, Part 2

The first indication that you are loosing hope is degeneration in your prayer life. Prayer is a law that God gave to us, His children. It seems nothing comes down from heaven unless something leaves earth in the form of prayer, hallelujah! Just like gravity is a law that keeps things from spilling out of the earth and gravity also keeps unwanted things from entering earth. God is wonderful, isn’t it? So, prayer likewise keeps things like health and prosperity in your life and keeps unwanted things like sickness and poverty. That’s why the word says in

Luke 18:1Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.

So, I wanted to establish that truth, prayer is a spiritual law, it’s not an option. Men ought to pray always….
Ladies and gentlemen, prayer is a law that can change circumstances, but circumstances should not change the law of prayer. See where we are heading? There is no spiritual awakening that ever happened here on earth that was birthed without prayer. Think about the founding fathers of faith and those who established churches and movements that left a mark in the history of men. All have one thing in common…THEY DID IT ON THEIR KNEES… If you want History to record your name and that the next generation will learn something of faith from you, go back to your knees child of God!

Always remember this:
Much prayer, much power
Less prayer, less power
No prayer, no power

No space is closed to prayer, that’s why the Devil attacks prayer. Nothing can keep prayer out. No office, No continent, country even demonic infested territories they just need a dedicated intercessor. Even now if I pray for you and I have faith results will come right to you! Even if you pray for me where you are domiciled, I will receive the answer where I am now, that’s how powerful and dynamic prayer is. I have people who comment and complain about the injustices happening in their spheres and many fronts of their lives, they haven’t tapped into the power of continuous, fervent and effective prayers. You might not have capacity and audience with the president of your nation, but your prayer can effect change in how your nation is governed!

Let’s read this passage together
Revelation 8:3Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all God’s people, on the golden altar in front of the throne. 4The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. 5Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

You see, that’s how it works. Prayer comes to God as incense, and God move because someone like you and me prayed.
We don’t pray according to our physical ability, but according to the ability of God to intervene in our situations. We are discouraged because we feel helpless, let me say it this way, we pray because of the faith that God will intervene not because that we feel He is or is not going to answer. So forget feelings when you pray!

James 5:17
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.

So, we ask if Elijah prayed and the whole nation was affected, why my prayers are not answered? There are many answers, but the most significant one is praying the will of God. You see, as a believer, your will should be subjected to God’s will. When this picture is complete what you desire you know that’s what God desires and so your prayer aligns with God and answers are imminent!

Prayers prayed from this posture secures guaranteed specific and consistent answers. You don’t want to pray for on and offs. When we pray for healing let it come as blessing, not that this week you are healed next week you are back in bed. If it’s finances we cannot pray and have finances only one month in 10 years, it has to be consistent. This verse confirms what I am saying, Proverbs 10:22
The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.

Lest you forget, Jesus Christ lives to make intercessions for us. And when what Jesus is praying for is what you are praying, reason with me what can stop the answer. There is a law of agreement with Heaven that should be established in our lives.

Hebrew 7:25
Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them

So, have you stopped and wondered if what you desire and pray for is the will of God. Think about the partner you want to marry, business you desire and many things we are praying for.

The earth is ours as humans, and we are the ones who allow or disallows certain things to happen here, both good and bad.

The reason we are discouraged is that we often want feelings that God is going to answer, but we don’t need feelings, we need faith that God is going to respond, I reiterate. There is a reason I’m repeating, I’m dealing with hope here alright! The problems with feelings they do change faith doesn’t, even if the answer prolongs. That’s what saints of this generation needs to master, there is need for continued and persistent prayers. You can pray here and there and expect what is going against you to just give you free access, just like that.

Luke 18:1-8
1Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,
2saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man.
3Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’
4And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man,
5yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”
6Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said.
7And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?
8I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

That’s what I’m trying to say. That scripture reveals the disposition we should have in prayers.

Now brethren, may these words release impetus. You can do it!
Why worry if you can pray.
I have prayed for you and this message carries an assignment.
May God reveal the remnant to be on their watchtowers.
Shanah Tovah!

How to regain hope

Hope deferred!

Occasionally, we find it difficult to wake up to a new day or new week even having positive expectations for the new year, Why? Because of distress that comes from deferred hopes.

Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

There you have it from the Word of God. When your hope is down as a believer, you will not accomplish much. That’s why God said protect your heart because out of it, flows issues of life. We need to pray to God to remove dishonest people around us and replace them with people of their words. Having these people around you will kill you slowly. The enemy uses these people to destroy our faith, and every, so often we end up thinking God is like these people around us, and we also start loosing trust in Him.

There are moments I have lived in pretends as if I was in faith, yet my hope was at its lowest. This is dangerous because if you read Hebrews 11 vs 1 it says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”

In other words, we are saying faith only comes to appropriate or give you the title of what you are already hoping for. See where we are going? So, if your hope is gone in a certain area, how will faith work for you? You see, we claim we have faith when in fact we are just posting everything to next day,week or year.Yet faith is now!

Read what David went through;
Psalms 120:1-2
1In my distress I cried to the Lord, And He heard me.
2Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips And from a deceitful tongue.

We go through this distress mostly because of people who give us empty promises, and it comes as betrayal to you because mostly it comes from your trusted circle.

If you are in business, check how people promised you a deal or a favorable settlement, and you found out that it was an empty promise. How did you deal with it? Because if you’re normal like any human being with a heart it affects you. Maybe you went through many failed relationships, did you deal with that and its effects to your heart? How about a parent or loved one who dropped you? Did we deal with that, is your soul back to its original state?
Can you safely say I was delivered, and I have forgiven them?

Action Point
Ask the HolySpirit to show you areas you were affected or currently going through concerning deferred hope and pray for God to deliver you from the effects thereof. There is a thing called soul fragmentation. This is when parts of your soul are captured in the abyss by the enemy, and he has control in those areas. You do everything well but when it comes to certain areas you find yourself helpless. For example, there are people who can preach the word or do praise and worship very well in church but when it comes to sexual immortality they are found wanting, maybe they were abused sexually by someone who was supposed to protect them. About delayed plans, just take plans as they are …personally i call plans guessing and don’t stress over plans and what will happen tomorrow. Who knew we were going to have covid 19 and many plans slowed down for about 2 years?That’s why Jesus would say to you through Mathew 6:34,
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

Pray, having faith that God will heal your heart and soul. Let’s enter the 2021 full of hope.
Shanah Tovah

God has better plans for you and me!
