Brothers and Sisters,
I want to share the revelation I had received before the new year, with a simple message:
Do not be lead astray by your thoughts.
I fell into this and it was a rollercoaster.The lies I had believed led to overthinking and making assumptions which led to making excuses and living without purpose and outside God’s good work.
Thank God for redemption.

Guys: There’s is a difference between being wrong and being led astray by the mind/ flesh.
Humble yourselves and return to the Father.
Scripture has to be read in the correct light.
The way I have been rebuked by the Spirit in the past couple of days. 😶
Makes me look back and think “what was I thinking?”
And that’s exactly the problem.
“Don’t operate from a place of feeling or thinking, but operate from a place of knowing.” – @MrVitoSpeaks
From my thinking, I had made excuses. From my feelings, I had acted on impulse.
Not good at all. #LessonLearnt
Ephesians 4: 17 for all who have fallen and haven’t realised.
Forgive us Lord!
Who is more knowledgeable, us or the Almighty?
Keep your light burning. If you don’t, people won’t see the way; you will be lost in the dark.
This is not for posting’s sake.
We treat the word of God as the tree of knowledge when it is the tree of life.
Knowledge = Information
Life = For Living
Information acquisition is passive when it is not APPLIED.
Anyone can read/study the word of God.
Are you doing it for knowledge or are you doing it to live?
The Apostles caught the revelation and did something with it. The gospel is now shared across the world.
All recorded in the book of ACTS
They caught the Revelation and they Acted.
Please learn from my mistake, my brothers and sisters. We are in the battle between the flesh and the spirit. The stronger one will be the one you feed more.
Read the word, apply it and live.

Ps: if you find yourself overthinking and retreat into your mind please be aware that this one form of escapism; entering the realm of thought and not being present in the now. Please search within yourself or with mentors and make practical steps to ensure that you are HERE rather than elsewhere.
The word of God says not to worry. Can any of us add an hour to our lives by worrying? (Matt 6: 25-27) Let us commit to spending the time to work in today, for today and plan and prepare for tomorrow. Amen.
