Happy Mother’s Day

God’s Finalists!

From Left To Right: Bella Obure, Eunice Obure, Jedidah Obure (Mommy) and AnneObure.

Bella: You came into this world two years after I did but overtook me in the motherhood field. I speak God’s blessings over your princess and princes, always giving thanks to God for their existence. Seek God for guidance and direction for each of them, that they may fulfill God’s call over their lives. Happy Mother’s Day Kid Sis.

Eunice: You mothered me even before you were old enough to bring forth your own. I swore to thoroughly beat your children as payback for the pinches and punches I received when Dad and Mom left me in your care. You now have one gorgeous queen, a little adorable princess and the most handsome prince I’ve ever seen. God has smiled on you. He handpicked you for these bundles of joy and can therefore trust you with their lives. Always inquire from Him before making decisions pertaining to them for He never disappoints. Happy Mother’s Day Big Sis.

Mommy: You nurtured me, trained me, took me to school but one thing I’m forever grateful for is the fact that you and Dad introduced God the Father to me. You have been there for us in many ways. You are still there for me in an unspeakable measure. You are not perfect for sure, but the greatest we know. My prayer is that you shall always prosper in everything that you set to do and live to see your children’s, children’s children. May the Lord always be your motivation. Happy Mother’s Day Dear Mom.

Chichi Obure (Pictured Above): I prophesy over you lots and lots of children, a number equivalent to your heart’s desire. You shall be ready for them when they come and God will download to you their destinies in advance. Thank you for your vote of confidence to us in regards to motherhood. The same is your portion in Jesus Name. I could not leave you out on this day dear Patricia; my look-a-like. You are blessed and highly favored. Happy Mother’s Day Smallest Sis.

Prayer Corner: Lord I present each and every one of these ladies to You this morning: in thanksgiving for what You are doing in their lives (and mine too). I lack words that can fully describe how grateful I am for them. Reveal Yourself more and more to us as we seek Your face. Our children are blessed (including those we’re yet to conceive that you already know). We celebrate You as the Maker of Mothers this day, in Jesus Name, Amen.

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered.

Via Roots

(In Memory of The Late Mr. G. O. Ochoro – Daddy)
‘Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.’ – Hebrews 12:1.
I came to the precious land of my forefathers,
I came just to love on others;
I came to the pleasant memories of my late father,
I came just to honor my Heavenly Father.

I saw food, friends and family.

I saw peace, prosperity and power.
I saw abundance, acceptance and allowance.
I saw love and length of life.

I conquered greed, grudge and grumpiness.
I conquered pity, poverty and powerlessness.
I conquered death, denial and dumbness.
I conquered lies and linear ties.


I came, I saw and I conquered;
My roots, my rite of passage.
On a Lighter Note: Today heaven must have given dad a front seat as he watched me relive his precious memories at Jusa Estate!

We Are Family

Harmony!

I am for Soprano. I am your Sister;
I am A for Alto. I am AnneObure.
You are for Tenor. You are my Teammate;
You are for Bass. You are my Brother.

When combined, we form chords that cannot be broken!

Together we produce a symphony;
Divided we generate unnecessary agony.
Together we release a sweet smelling fragrance;
Divided we allow the enemy to advance.

Heaven resounds our unity;
When we combine every ability.
Grab your corner and instrument;
Let’s penetrate every firmament.

Psalms 133:1 – ‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

Liquid Love

 

Wow! When  God revealed this to me, I was utterly amazed. Today I was experiencing blogger’s block, not knowing that when I’m down to nothing, God’s up to something. He made me come up with the above illustration of Matthew 17:5 and I noticed how those center words (underlined) flow like a river; from above. God’s in the business of  revealing heaven’s answers to earth’s questions. This River heals everything that lies wherever it flows.

Now that we know Whom God is well pleased with, ain’t it easy to know how to please God? (Life’s FAQs) Simply follow Christ. You will not go wrong. Read the Word because He is the Word Incarnate (John 1:14). Listen to The Holy Spirit; He’s in you, revealing Jesus day by day. Come on, flow in this River of Love! Only then will you go deeper and deeper, and there you will find your Father – Deep calls unto deep (Psalms 42:7).

Data

Heal & Rejuvenate

There was a time the word ‘data’ was a plural word meaning “facts or pieces of information”. Of recent times, the word data is one way that device users can gain wireless access to the internet.

In my world however, Data is a synonym that stands for:

Daily

Anointing

To

Reversing Verses

Daily

Every new day comes with its own agenda. A daily renewal is therefore required so that your software can be current in this dynamic times. You therefore have to make sure that your antennas are facing the right direction so that you may receive the right signals. Begin your day from finding out what’s in store. Spend time with God in prayer. That’s the only way you will receive the Rhema Word. Forget about yesterday. It is gone and will never return. This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it! You have been rejuvenated today. Daily Healing is more like it.

Anointing

This is the wireless enablement received once our data has been activated. Anointing comes from the Triune God: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. I love using the 3G analogy to portray God and 4G to portray my partnership with Him. God and I make a good team! You have been anointed. Empowered is more like it!

To

Once you have been anointed, what next? You are able to:

  • Preach the Gospel to the poor
  • Heal the brokenhearted
  • Preach deliverance to the captives
  • Preach recovery of sight to the blind
  • Set at liberty them that are bruised

You have been appointed. Service is more like it!

“For God is working in you giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him” – Philippians 2:13

Attract

The anointing makes all the difference. This is what attracts the creation to the Creator. No human effort is required. All we have to do is lift God up by fulfilling His call over our lives; by going out and bringing in every creature; by daily walking according to His ways. Jesus is very attractive. Once He is allowed to dominate in our lives, the world automatically acknowledges Him as Lord and Savior!Our lifestyle speaks of our Life – Giver. (Read more of this at http://www.rhema.co.nz/the-word-for-today). Jesus conquered all when He died on the Cross. He bore all our iniquities and sicknesses; he paid the price that we might live; He did it all for you and I.You have been adorned. Beautified is more like it!

Once you surrender to this gospel, do not just preach the Word. Live it! I conclude by echoing St. Francis of Assisi’s words, “Preach the Gospel at all times and if necessary, use words”. You’ve got all the ‘Data’ bundles required for a stable connection: the medium connecting earth to heaven. Your subscription period is eternal. Your Service Provider changes not! He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). When you feel as though the connection is dying, this does not mean that the anointing is any less. It actually means that your battery is running low. Charge yourself up by praying in the Holy Spirit (Jude 20) and your network bars will be full again; ready to decode heaven’s language according to the needs thereof.

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Security
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4

God – Ultimate Security

There are times when we feel as though we’re all alone. These are the times we wanna give up. Everything seems to be caving in on us. This is when I practice my 2 – 3 – 4 rule (Psalms 23:4 – The numbers are sequential thus easy to memorize). You could also term it as Hope, Step and Jump!

What more security do we need? If a mere sparrow doesn’t end up in the wrong hands, how much more you and I? (Matthew 10:29) Focus on Him, the Author of our lives and all these other things shall become non – issues. Nothing is impossible with God. Go ahead! sign up for that task which seems difficult. He has gone before you. He has set angels to watch over you (Luke 4:10). There is light at the end of that tunnel you are in right now.  All you need to do is look up, go deeper and lift Him higher!

I Killed My Old Man

The Cross – My Cusp
Oh Yes, I did!

You ask me why?

There was no other choice. It was either he dies or I die. He was a slave, quick to anger and didn’t have a future. He was physically strong for sure, but I needed more than that; I needed supernatural strength. He was prone to diseases, failure, hurts, destruction and ultimately death. I had to end his life before he dragged me to eternal death with him.

You ask me how I did it?

My Brother helped me out. We hang my old man on a tree. Yes, we crucified him! It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. The Cross became my Cusp – the dividing line between my old man and I.

Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

I began to live the day my old man died. WheColossians+3v3+by+Alyssa+Reevesn he was alive, I was decaying since I had a sinful nature. Then my Brother came and showed me the filth in my old man. He made a way for me by being The Way, The Truth and The Life! He introduced me to Father. He gave me a new body; one that can accommodate Dad in it; How cool is that! Can you imagine He sent the Holy Spirit to guide and protect me on a real-time basis. What more could I ask for. He’s the greatest Resource you could ever have.

You ask me whether I regret it? 

Not at all! He was the reason for all my problems. He was full of generational curses and sin. He was born into this world through Adam’s lineage: certified failure. When I was informed that I have to be born again, I knew for sure that he was too big to go back into mom’s womb, thus had to die.

You ask me what I gained from killing him?

New CreatureEternal Life! I was born into a new family. I became a new creature; totally transformed. This was instant in my spirit, a continuous process in my soul and will be perfected when this body eventually returns to dust. This is the sweetest journey I have had to take; one of knowing my new identity each day; one with assured victory; one with my Father in me and I in Him. He holds me up that I may not hit my foot on a stone. He leads me in the way I should follow. He is teaching me how to be like Him; ever Loving, never-failing. He sent His only Son to take my place on the cross (the Brother I told you about earlier; the one who helped me kill my old man). He did it all for me, that I might live.

Dying to selfMy old man did not want to die. This is the reason why there’s war in my head at times. What should I therefore do? I must take up my cross daily. everyday comes with its trials, problems, sicknesses, temptations, persecutions and so on. To hell with all these (actually that’s where all these belong). I have to consciously remember who I am and why I am still here. It is my responsibility to unlearn the things taught to me by my old man. I have the answers to all life’s issues in the Word and the Word dwells in me through the Holy Spirit. He came and made my heart His home. He became everything I am and all I know. Oh what a joy! Without Him I am nothing. In Him I live, in Him I move, in Him I have my being!

So what exactly am I saying?

My old man died. My new man was born. I can’t keep silent. It is the best thing that ever happened to me. My new man cannot die. He is hid in Christ Jesus. He who is in me is greater than he who’s in the world (1 John 4:4). He will never leave me nor forsake me. He holds my future by knowing my expected end (Jeremiah 29:11).

Now here’s the Good News!

What He has done is not for me alone. He did it for you and I. I’d be selfish to go on this eternal vacation on my own; walking on the streets of gold, owning an immortal body, a place with no sorrow, no sicknesses, no death, and so on. Guess what! He already made a reservation for you and went ahead and paid the full price. What are you waiting for? Raise your tree! Kill your old man! If you already have, take a seat next to me (follow me, like and share this post) as we journey the world-wide web with the intention of making him known in all corners of the earth. Isn’t this the reason we’re still here? to show the world His goodness that He may draw them to Himself?Draw men to Himself

Lift Him Up!

His Name Be Lifted Higher

Lift Him Up!

exalt His Holy Name!
