Hello beautiful readers and followers. How are you all doing? Especially with the pandemic and social distancing😭. Well, Thank you for checking out my blog!❤️
This topic came about during one of my self discovery days but this time, I got to know the man above better and I feel like sharing. Yeah, I love sharing!😃. Follow me guys😊;
Okay. So, many years ago, I found myself as a Christian but not really inclined with the word of God. You see, I was born into a family of Christian parents, die hard fans of the word of God. My mom, till date, she is a prayer warrior as heck. You can’t afford to sleep comfortably during prayers or you’ll be told to stand. Always annoying if you ask me.
In my mind, I’ll be like;
“Mommy please, I’m tired. I’m following you.”
When deep down, I couldn’t hear a single prayer point, nothing. Why? Because I didn’t see the use or purpose. Right now, my eyes are opened to the existence of God. Science inclined students, especially people like me, we were told to put anything religion aside and from there, we took it extra. My life wasn’t complete without him and when I allowed him to take a place in my life, I became complete!
I remember during my early school days, I was so engrossed in school work and other activities. Monday to Friday was solely dedicated to school affairs, even Sunday! I didn’t feel anything was wrong at that time. Now, I feel free. . . Different too, in a good way.
The God Factor deals with everything about God, his usefulness, significance and who he really is. Religion-wise, everyone needs God, someone to count on, pray to and put their trust on. This is why there is an Almighty who came to give us a new life and name. Are you following?
Let me share what I gained when I became in tune with God and his word.
1. Peace of mind; He told us in his word that he will grant us peace. This is what I’ve been experiencing since this lockdown. Before, I was always worried about a lot of things, my life, family, secret things too. He gave me that assurance that everything will be okay. He even told me that he calmed the storm, when no one else could.
2. You will always be victorious. In anything you do, what you lay your hands on will prosper. Let me give you an example, it’s relating to me though. Check this out;
Many years ago, when I was younger, my dad needed money for our wellbeing. There was no one to turn to and do you know what happened? My dad prayed to him, to God.
A parent from my school called my dad and requested for something. It wasn’t relating to my dad’s job but my dad looked for whatever it was. Miraculously, it sold and my dad got the money for the family.
So, that is what you stand to gain. You will not have to cry or shed a tear or beg for whatever you want or need. Jeremiah 33 Vs 3, Ephesians 3 Vs 20-21 backs me up here.
3. Everlasting life; He told us that he will give is everlasting life if we’re with him. Check out the popular verse John 3 Vs 16. You’ll see what he says there.
4. Fellowship with him; This is the most important of them all. Fellowship, in my opinion means communication (In this case, one on one.), conversation, etc. You’ll be hearing from him directly. Many people do hear from God through dreams, vision and other means.My mom told me sometime ago that I’m supposed to hear from God because back then, I was complaining about the fact that I don’t dream or see anything. Then she told me to have a personal fellowship with God. Now, Do you hear from God? Do you want to hear from God? It’s very simple, just fellowship with him. Give him your time, your heart, your mind, your everything.
You see, I learnt all these from him within a short time. My friends introduced me to this online Christian fellowship and my life has gotten better. It has changed because I put God as a factor in my life.
This pandemic, the world crisis has brought so many non-christians to God. You too can come to him. It isn’t too late. He is always ready to accept new people.
Thanks for reading. ❤️
