Exercising faith in God,
If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.
One servant of God in Uganda said something very important that…
"we Christians of today, we have only believed half of the gospel, the other half we’ve left it …."
Well, absolutely he’s right, we pray but we fail to believe in God.
One man, a neighbour of mine who happens to be an adventist, one he was arguing with me saying …..
"there are no miracles today, all that we see being perfomed in churches and crusades today are all lies. Why cant they then raise up the dead if they have power…….?"
Jesus made it clear…..
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Most of the time we happen to follow Jesus ,but , one leg is with Jesus,the other is still with the world.
We equate Jesus with our earthly needs. We worry more about our needs than fearing the Lord Jesus.
Almighty God has destroyed my courage. It is God,not the dark, that makes me afraid -even though the darkness has made me blind.

The Story of a business man from China.
Theres a story of one business man from China who had his busineses and big chain stores. This man was so obsessed with his business that he couldnt have a sleep, all his worries were on his business.
One person asked him,
"why arent you going to church?"
"if I go to church on Sunday ,my business will fail…"
It didnt take long for the businessman, after sometimes he went through problems, deeper problems.
His wife became very sick at a point of death. His all profits went to his wife’s hospital bill.
The business ran into losses sliding fast.
His only son , turned into robbery and it didnt take long, he was shot dead by police.
The house turned into hell in a fraction of time. From happiness to tribulations.
It went on, the man became bankrupt, he closed his chain stores one by one.
Then at one time,his senses brought him back into rememberence of what he was asked a few years back….
"…why arent you going to church….?"
At that point, he sought the church for help. He gave his life to Jesus.
Am telling you, God saved him back , he is now a servant of God.
Thars the same of today, we try to travel two paths at the same time, serve two masters at the same.
Here Job tells us,
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.
Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.
If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the [gold] of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.
For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.
Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
We must return back to the Lord and submit ourselves to Him.
Give up all our lusts and desires, all siver and gold that we see are more precious to us.
If we do so, then the Lord God, will shine his face upon us. We will see his goodness. We wont pray with doubt again.
Our trust will be upon him, our joy and our happiness will revolve in Him.
He will fulfill His promises and He will answer our prayers. We will never doubt in our prayers.
Success and victory will follows us in all our days.
We will never fail to fulfill our vows, for He will be there to provide for us.
