“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”
Nothing compared with knowing Christ.
“Only one life–it will soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
Pete Maravich was felled by a heart attack at only 40 years of age. “Pistol Pete” was a unique basketball player. Known for his phenomenal ball handling, uncanny passing, and deadly shooting, He set the college and pro basketball world on fire. He still owns a collegiate scoring record with 3,667 points in just 3 years, and he averaged 24.2 points a game during his 10 years as a pro. Through-the-legs dribbling, behind-the-back passing, 50-plus scoring, and floppy socks and hair were his trademarks.
Just before his death, he finished his autobiography: Pistol Pete: Heir to a Dream. The book chronicles his love for basketball and his devoted practice as a youth. He would dribble the ball out the car window while his dad drove, and he would dribble blindfolded through the house. He even slept with the ball. The book tells of Pete’s close relationship with his dad–and then of his own struggle with alcoholism and his mother’s suicide.
But the book also tells of Pete’s conversion to Christ–a dramatic change for this sports superstar. In a newspaper interview published just weeks before he died, Pete said, “Jesus transformed my life. I don’t want to put past tense on that because he continues to transform my life. I want to share that truth with people. I don’t Bible-beat, I don’t Bible thump anybody, because Christ is a choice. But I can tell people this. That it’s the greatest life in the world. Your circumstances may not disappear, they may even get worse, but through him you can overcome.”
About his two sons he said, “Both of my boys, there’s no doubt, have the talent that God’s given them to play basketball. But for a different purpose, that purpose is to glorify God.” Pete Maravich attained much in the world’s eyes during his short life, but he said that nothing compared with knowing Christ.
We who belong to Christ are new people! Pistol Pete’s new life, as well as his death, should remind us of the truth of the often-quoted phrase, “Only one life–it will soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
Men and Brethren, Life gets so complicated sometimes. So many things demand our attention: school, activities, friends, family, work. In all the chaos, we too often forget about — or blatantly ignore — what matters most for our lives. But deep down, we’re aware of the simple truth that nothing – no achievements, no pleasures, no possessions — equals to the value of human soul. Because what we most want for ourselves is to live our lives with significance and meaning. We long to be all that God created us to be. If you have found yourself to busy to care for your soul; if you have been simply going through the motions of fulfilling God’s best plans for your lives and hoping things turn out okay; if you are ready to stop floating along in your routine in order to see a remarkable difference in your life — and profoundly impact the life of those around you — choose life and flourish is for you. Choose life and flourish tackles the crucial life issues you face, weaving together poignant personal reflection questions, inspirational quotes, real life stories from others, Gods promises, brief — but hard- hitting — Bible studies, practical life applications ideas, and prayer to help you to discover for yourself how to let your soul take flight and soar! Praise God! Hallelujah “The Lord is Good a very stronghold in the day of trouble” Nahum. 1:7
In the physical, ( your marriage, family, business, finance, and spiritually everything around you may seem to have come to a standstill, or may even have turned upside-down; the truth of the matter is that There IS A End That never Ends! Prayer is the key that opens up new doors when there seems to be no way out. Read about King Hezekiah in 11 Kings. 20 :1-11
What looks like an end is never really an end when God takes over. When you come face to face to your Red Sea in your life. I want you to know that God has prepared an express way underneath the ranging waves of sea for you. God gave you a promise and He will fulfil it in your life and in your family in Jesus name Amen. There is a God in heaven that answers prayers.HE CHANGES THE TIMES AND SEASON IN THE WORLD ( DAN. 2:2) in answer to prayer. And He desperately longs to answer your prayer. Failure is the womb that gives birth to success. Setbacks are the raw materials for divine set ups and breakthroughs in life. Your God says “Look up and be ye saved (Isaiah.45 :22) There is salvation in looking up Psa. 121 :1-2. In 11 Cor 3 :18 God’s plan for us is to move from Glory to Glory. Not from Glory to shame. He expects us to change everyday. He wants more success, victory, grace, health and power for us today that we enjoyed yesterday. (Exodus 14: 10-31) Hope is everything. It’s that thing which can pull out the best in you. Hope is the main basis behind each and every miracle. Whether you are bedridden or living a life full of woes, only hope can help you get back to normalcy. When we lose hope in God, nothing remains in our life. Hope gives us confidence. It guides us through difficult times; it helps us to realize our actual inner powers. This is the distinctive factor between a successful person and an unsuccessful one. So, never lose hope. Success might be waiting in the next turn of life!
“Immanuel” God with us. Matthew 1:23 “They shall call His name Immanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Christ is our Victor. Micah. 2:13″ One who breaks open the way will go before them” Because Jesus has gone before us,things are not as they would have been if He had never passed that way. Christ has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. He slain the devil, nailed our sins to His cross, conquered death for us, barred the entrance of hell against His children and never to see the abyss of perdition, broken the lions teeth,pulled the fangs of serpents, bridged every river across our ways, given us matchless garments that render us invulnerable to fire (Isa. 43:3 ), blunted the sword forged against us,the instruments of war has lost their points and power. It is true we often engaged in combat, but the fight is with a vanquished foe. All we have to do is to divide the spoil. Glory to Our God Amen.
Do you want to be extravagantly blessed by God? Are you ready to reach for the extraordinary,and overcome your past or present experience of domestic violence, depression, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, child abandonment, barreness, rejection, poverty, curses, stress, self-Harm, divorce, lack of confidence, sense of failure and shame & guilt, relationship difficulties, and work pressure?

Lost a loved one? Been imprisoned? Unfairly treated? In all of our trials, God promises to bring something good out of even our darkest moments (James 1:2-4). One key way this takes place is when we share the comfort He offered us with those who are now going through trials.
What an honour! Wounded one, you can come through this painful experiences and sing the song of the overcomer. By God’s grace you can learn to live in the present and let go of the past. How? By spending time in God’s presence for the rain of His presence to fall on you, and allowing His love to touch the hurting places within you. Give all your secrets to God – and leave them there.

PRAYER FOR THE WORLD. Jer. 18. 7,8, 2 Chron.7:14 In praying for the world’s issues we are likely to be joining with countless other Christians across many different countries, with our prayers fusing together in a ceaseless round of petition to Father God. One of the issues is knowing what to pray for, since there are so many topics dominating the headlines. Rather than flit from topic to topic, praying “Lord, I pray for the situation in so and so, the war in somewhere else, and the terrible flooding in another place,” it is probably better to focus a little more on the needs of a particular situation. Remember too, the needs of your country, your town and your neighbourhood. Praying for the world can too often be restricted to the headline news on our televisions. This allows Christians from all over the world to pray for these issues, but only a limited subset of people will be praying for your neighbourhood. Your local paper, school needs, the conversations with local people, the projects of your church can be great places to start. Pointers for Prayer: i. Keeping ourselves aware of the latest news, researching the background to a situation, and taking opportunities to discuss the situation with informed people can give us important background knowledge. This in turn, informs our prayers, helping us direct our prayers to the particular and specific needs of the situation we are praying for. ii. In general, prayer tends to focus more on people rather than things, and so take a moment to consider the people involved in a situation. Those in authority, those on the ground, those affected by it, and their families, those who are trying to remedy a particular issue and so on. Again, it is good to pray specifically, and hearing people speak on news broadcasts or reading quotes in our newspapers gives us a focus for prayer. iii. Prayer cycles such as those produced by mission agencies, or by church dioceses can provide a mechanism to focus our prayer for the world on particular topics each day so that over the course of a month or a year or so, our prayers will cover the complete range of needs. “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” (Psalms 2:8 KJV) Please, pray for yourself, family, Community, City, Country, Nation, and the World.

This is a new, unique and blessed season in my life and I know that the Lord has made it beautiful, marvellous and prosperous for me in his own way and there’s nothing Satan the liar and his agents can do about it. This year shall usher me into my greatest moment of unusual and uncommon glory, honour, peace, joy, power, prosperity and dominion. My family and I shall not shed the tears or die the death of the enemies this year because the Lord shall undertake for us this day and this year and all our adversaries shall be subdued under our feet. Throughout this year, my destiny and that of my household shall not be at the mercy of our adversaries. My marriage, job/career, business, husband, wife, children, finances, health and wealth shall not be under the control of the wicked ones. I take total control of my destiny henceforth in Jesus name. Satan’s ugly package of heaviness, depression, afflictions, oppression, dejection, rejection, humiliation, poor health, mockery, stagnation, shame, reproach, failure, unfruitfulness/bareness, lack and want shall be far and very far from my territory this year. Satan you are a liar. In this year heaven shall settle me round about. The earth and men shall speedily fulfil God’s plan, prophecy and purpose concerning my destiny. This is the year in which my God shall compel Satan and his agents to vomit all that he has swallowed up from my life and destiny because this is my time and moment of divine announcement Joel 2:25. This is my year and season of peace, fruitfulness and rest in my marriage, my season of swimming in abundant favour in ministry, my time of unusual business enlargement beyond borders. It is the season when my job/career must take me to my place of honour and lifting. My moment of blossoming in strength and health. Yes! It is the day and year of remembrance and unusual abundance for me and my family. It is the day and year where my divinely prepared helpers and partners must locate me. This is the year the settled world of my God concerning my life shall spring forth into manifestation. There shall be a great difference and turn around in my life henceforth because every day of this year shall announce and celebrate me for good and I shall be a wonder to the world in Jesus name. Amen. PRAYING DOWN STRONG HOLDS “We need to be constantly remembered that prayer is to God, for man and against the devil. We must know that any prayer to God is against Satan. This ‘against’ factor must not be forgotten or else we will have war without the enemy. In Ephesians 6 the key word is engagement that we face is ‘against.’ Stand against the wiles of the devil not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of darkness of this world; against spiritual wickedness in high places.” In prayer the entrenchments of the enemy must be primary target. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strong holds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2nd Corinthians 10:4-6) DETECTING STRONGHOLDS Compulsions, obsessions, fixations and recurring involuntary thought processes would be included as suspects for strongholds. Unreasoning fear, helpless, hate, unavoidable jealousy, violent temper, or a driving, aggressive spirit may be symptoms of a stronghold. Uncontrollable lust, unchecked appetites, or undeniable urges may be tell-tale signs. Incontinence (lack of self-restraint), impatience, or even indecision may also be signs of a developing stronghold. DEMOLISHING STRONGHOLDS Our weapons are mighty to the demolishing of strongholds. I am aware of the issue of the name and blood of Jesus in spiritual warfare. The use of all-conquering name of Jesus seem to have huge important in spiritual warfare. This name includes all the He is, His blood symbolises all that he did on our behalf at Calvary, and embraces the victory he won over the enemy. “Haven disarmed principalities and powers. . . triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:15) We get a hint in Revelation as to how the enemy is overcome: “And they overcome him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimonies, and they did not love their lies to the death.” (Revelation 12:11) “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7) USING THE WORD TO PUT ON THE ARMOUR (Ephesians 6:10-18) I choose now to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. I confess that I am in the Lord and thus, am located in the power of his might. I choose to put on the whole armour that God has provided me, in order that I may stand against the method of the enemy. I know that the battle is not with flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places. Therefore I stand to accept the armour, which is mine in Jesus. (I may physically stand while doing this.) I put on the breastplate of righteousness, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is made unto me righteousness. I am made righteous in Him. I put on the girdle of truth. I accept the fact that Jesus is truth and that truth has made me free. I refuse deception and accept the truth. I slip into the footwear of preparation in the Gospel. I am now ready to walk with Him. I put on the helmet of salvation. The certainty of my salvation covers and protects my mind and my outlook. I stand in that certainty now! I take up the shield of faith. I now trust in then trustworthiness of God! I am covered from head to toe so that Satan’s fiery darts cannot touch me. I now take my offensive weapon, the Word of God (holding up the bible), declaring it to be true, without error, reliable, powerful and alive-God’s word to me! And now I am dressed from head to foot for battle. On my head is the helmet of salvation, on my body is the breastplate of righteousness and the girdle of truth. On my feet is the footwear of preparation of the Gospel of peace. In my left hand is the shield of faith. In my right hand is the word of God. I am now ready for the engagement of prayer. At this point a battle cry is in order, “I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! The lord is my strength and song, And he has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him. The Lord is a man of war; The Lord is His name.” (Exodus 15:1-3) USING THE WORD TO REHEARSE THE TRUTH I now confess in agreement with God that. . . I have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:13). I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20). I have received the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:14). My body I the temple of the Holy Spirit and he this moment indwells me, being the means by which I can claim that Jesus in me is my hope of glory ( 1Corinthians 6:19; Colossians 1:27). I am one with Jesus Christ. He is in me and I am In Him. As He is so am I in this world. I, in all that I am, belong to Him; and He, in all that He is, belongs to me (John 17:21-23; 1 John 4:17; 1 Corinthians 3:21-23.) I am chosen to be Holy and without blame before Him in love and have acceptance with the beloved, having redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:4, 7-8). I have obtained an inheritance, which cannot be disannulled, mine by the promises of God (Galatians 3:15-18). I have been raised to sit with Christ in heavenly places, far above every principality, power, might, and dominion and every name that is named in this world and the world that is to come. Nothing under Jesus’ feet is over my head and all things that are made under his feet (Ephesians 1:19-2:5). I am his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God had before ordained that I should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10). I have been foreknown, predestinated, called, justified, and glorified. I am being conformed to the image of Jesus, the Son of God. All things are now working together towards this perfect goal,. I can then stand and say, “If God be for me, who can be against me?” (Romans 8:28-31). I have the boldness and access by faith in Him (Ephesians 3:12). I have this treasure (Himself) in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of me (2 Corinthians 4:7). My God is now supplying all my need according to His riches in glory by Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:19). I can do all things through Christ who keeps pouring his strength through me (Philippians 4:13). God is able to make all grace abound towards me that I, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8). I am confident that He who began a good work in me will perform it, complete it to the day of Christ (Philippians 1:6). I am strengthened with all might according to His glorious power unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness (Colossians 1:11). USING THE WORD TO PRAY FOR OTHERS.
