Kingdom Principle

Kingdom refers to a realm or region in which one holds a preeminent (having paramount rank) position. Presidents are in democracies are merely civil servants. Their power is temporal and determined by people’s approval. People have the right to criticize their Presidents. People however don’t have the same rights in a Kingdom.


Roman 3 v 28:  20 But who are you, a mere man, to criticize and contradict and answer back to God? Will what is formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus?

21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same mass (lump) one vessel for beauty and distinction and honorable use, and another for menial or ignoble and dishonorable use?

His grace found us to be part of his Kingdom, to be co heirs with Christ. We have a holy and glorious King and is important to always recognise him for the King that he is. Sometimes we go through hard times and or things we don’t understand. In all this let our speech, thoughts and actions reflect our submission to authority. To never be found criticizing the Almighty.

Thought of the Day: Do you submit to the authority of the King?



God’s love is Unconditional

Love is a scarce basic human need. Like anything else that is scarce we sometimes get out of our way just to find love. Even after we find this love it can be lost if certain expectations are not meet. Customarily giving someone a gift is one of the ways to show affection.

John 3 v 16:  “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.


As you go through your day, know God loves you and you don’t have to get out of your way you have his love already. His love is pure and unconditional even while we were still sinners he loved us. He loves you not because you are smart, beautiful/handsome. He loves you not because of anything you have done, His name is love and so He loves you. It is called grace because you did not earn it, it was just given to you. To show his affection he has given us a gift that keeps on giving in the Name of Jesus we have life.


Thought of the Day: Celebrate today for you have God’s unconditional love and hold on to that life giving gift that is Jesus Christ.



God watches over us always

It’s always good when you know what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen. A parent feels at ease when they know there is food for their kid to eat tomorrow. We never want to leave anything important to chance. Knowing there is a chance that events my not go our way is the reason we worry.

Genesis 1 v14: 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs and tokens [of God’s provident care], and [to mark] seasons, days, and years

The scripture above is God’s assurance to us that He will always provide for us. Every time we wake up to see the sunrise let us remember that is a guarantee that God will provide for us. Whatever challenge you may be facing rest assured God is watching over.


Thought of the Day: Is there anything too hard for the Lord?



Nature vs Nurture

The nature versus nurture debate involves whether human behavior is determined by the environment, either prenatal or during a person’s life, or by a person’s genes.

1 John 3 v 9: No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and [h]habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

The scripture above however does not consider external factors or nurture as a factor. Just like a lemon tree will not alter its fruit during the good or the bad season, so will we who are born of the divine sperm produce the fruits of the Spirit. We are the salt of the earth therefore we we’re wired to be influencers. We who inquire for and of the Lord Almighty in all matters can should and can never be victims of nurture.

Thought of the Day: Can anything alter your divine genetic make up?


Desiring Christ

There is a lot we want in this life. Some things we want more than others. How much we want something is generally measured by how much we are willing to sacrifice to get it.

Psalm 119 v 2: 2 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are they who keep His testimonies, and who seek, inquire for and of Him and crave Him with the whole heart.

To those of us who have accepted Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour we have received and we have Him. But the question is, “is there more of him to get”? Can we get more of Him? The word crave means to have a strong or inward desire for something. I believe accepting Christ is only the beginning of the journey. The awesomeness of Christ is such that even while partaking of His glory and dwelling in His presence you still yearn for more because there is more to get from Him.

It is this hunger, this desire that we always ought to have for more of him. To see the Lord as the treasure and counsel that He is.
