Restoration.

by RCCG NSW

‘I…lifted my eyes to Heaven, and…..I was restored…..’ (Daniel 4:34 – 36). Bringing back what has been lost especially in an unexpected form can be heart-warming (Psalm 126:1).Such was the case of King Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel. When he repented, his understanding, reason, honour and splendour returned and he was restored to his […]

Graduating with the highest honor.

by RCCG NSW

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:14). As we temporarily conclude this series, it suffices to state that finishing the heavenly race with great accolade requires living a focused life. The world is always ready to substitute your vision with ephemeral ideas and […]

Graduating with highest honours.

by RCCG NSW

‘For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed’ (Rom 8:19). Graduating with highest honours is not cheap. It’ll demand a life of sacrifice. Apostle Paul once lived a life of comfort, then everything changed because of this heavenly goal (Philippians 3:8). Many times he was beaten almost to […]

Graduating with highest honours.

by RCCG NSW

‘Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown…… ’ (II Tim 4:8). Can you remember the feeling you had when you were called up to receive certificate of excellence, university degree and you heard the words, “Congratulations on your excellent performance,” You did it! All your hard work paid off and your tireless effort […]

One thing is needful

by RCCG NSW

‘…But one thing is needful…… ’ (Luke 10: 41 – 42). Mary and Martha (sisters to Lazarus) welcomed Jesus into their residence one day and in their usual custom, wanted some refreshments to be prepared for their guest. While Martha was busy in the kitchen, Mary was sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to […]

Worries, anxieties, cares……

by RCCG NSW

‘Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat… ’ (Matt 6:25). Anxieties, worries, cares e.t.c and there is no end to this dragon head that keeps evading human life without permission. However, the devastating effects are always there and that is why the Scriptures caution that: ‘the cares […]

Comfort in trouble times.

by RCCG NSW

‘Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down…… ’ (II Cor 7:6). Unfortunately no man can negotiate his way out of challenges in life. It seems to me as if it’s embedded in a man’s journey in life. Even the great Apostle Paul experienced discouragement, stress, restlessness and fears. Listen to one of his […]

Permitted to overtake

by RCCG NSW

“…and without fail recover all?” (I Samuel 30:8). The barren is a potential over taker. Have you been termed barren in any area of life and already made a laughing-stock amongst your neighbours? Rejoice because your life is about to experience a positive turning point. One person who experienced overtaking was Hannah and her testimony […]

Deal with it now

by RCCG NSW

‘No matter how fast you run, you won’t escape…… ’ (Amos 2:14 CEV). Problems don’t magically solve themselves because you refuse to deal with them. Actually, they multiply and no matter how fast you run, you will not escape and they won’t go away. Incidentally we cannot run, hide, push issue away forever, eventually we […]

CRITICAL THINKING

by RCCG NSW

“…who art thou that judgest another?” (James 4:12). Having a critical mind is a habit that sees the cup always half-full especially in respect of achievement made by others. It is a junior sister to the spirit of jealousy and selfishness. Aaron and his sister Miriam were so critical of their brother Moses whom God […]
