“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall or fail).
You can put it down now. You don’t have to carry that weight any longer. The Lord wants to carry
the burdens YOU are carrying. We go through life with the weight of the world on our shoulders
but that’s not the way it’s supposed to be. When we are under immense pressure we need to cast
it on to the Lord’s shoulders.
Remember, there is nothing too heavy for Him. There is no weight on earth or heaven that can
crush Him. Sometimes we carry our burdens because we think He will let us down and will abandon
us when we need Him the most but God is not man. He is always faithful and will never ever
let us down.
You will not slip, fall or fail.
This doesn’t mean there will be no bad days, days you feel like giving up, or days you feel hopeless.
It means through it all you will not be moved.
When you fall you will get up.
When your back is against the wall the Lord will come in and save you.
When you are in chains, the Lord will rescue you, free you.
You will not be moved because the Lord is with you.
Cast it all to Him. Don’t leave one single thing. Learn to walk light.
“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns,
once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”
1 Peter 5:7
Give it all to Him. Your worries, your concerns, your fears, your anxieties, and your troubles.
He will help you with all the trouble you face. He knows what you going through and will not leave
Turn to Him today!
Bless you, friends
“So Moses and Aaron gathered all the elders of the Israelites.
Aaron told them everything that the Lord had told Moses.
Then Moses did the miracles for all the people to see. So the
Israelites believed. They heard that the Lord was concerned about them
and had seen their troubles. Then they bowed down and worshipped
The Israelites were in bondage for a really long time. Things had been really
difficult for them. So when Moses and Aaron told
them that God was concerned about them and had seen their troubles they must have
But the hope they had quickly disappeared when the pressure intensified. The joy, the hope,
the faith they had was replaced with doubt, fear, and anxiety. They were not patient with the
Lord. They wanted the deliverance to happen that very instant.
“As they were leaving the meeting with the king, they met Moses and Aaron.
Moses and Aaron were waiting for them. So they said to Moses and Aaron, “May the
Lord punish you. You caused the king and his offices to hate us. You have given them
an excuse to kill us.”
Exodus 5:20, 21
That story spoke to me today. We need to endure as we wait for God’s promise
to materialize in our lives. His promise for our lives, our families, and our countries will be
contested against by the enemy. There is no way he is going to just sit and let you
stroll into what God has promised you. he is the adversary and by the very nature of
that name he opposes and fights against everything good that God has prepared for us.
The Israelites thought it would be a walk in the park but it wasn’t. They had to trust God with
all that they had. They had to believe His word was true. They had to endure.
God’s promise was true and He would deliver them and they needed to understand that no matter
how bad things got.
“He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold as a servant. His feet they hurt with fetters;
he was laid in chains of iron and his soul entered into iron.
Until his word [to his cruel brothers] came true until the word of the Lord tried and tested him.”
When the promise seems like a fantasy we must keep trusting, we need to endure. His promise
is true, it will come to pass. The Lord is not a man that lies. His word is sure and if He promised
it will come to pass. Difficulty doesn’t mean the promise won’t come to pass.
There is nothing that can stop the word of God from coming to pass.
Hold on in the storm. Endure, put your faith in Him.
He will fulfill what He promised you.
Bless you, friends…
*I was reminded of something I wrote some time back and that is why I am writing this post today.
This post is dedicated to everyone who has made mistakes and think God has turned His back
on them. As you will read, that is not true. He loves you and will do all He can to get you back
“And when the morning was past, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became
his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the Lord.”
2 Samuel 11:27
This was one of David’s darkest periods of his life. He slept with Bathsheba and got her husband killed.
To make things worse he was blind to his sin. He never repented, he never confessed his sin. Somewhere,
somehow his heart became hardened. I want to stop here for a bit.
We all make mistakes, we all mess up in life. What we need to pray for is for the Lord to correct, and to intervene
like He did for David. He could have left him in his sin but He didn’t. He confronted him about what he
did and delivered him. Because He loved David, the Lord sent Nathan.
The Lord knew David wasn’t going to snap out of sin on his own so in His mercy and grace He stepped in.
We need YAH to step in for us always. We can’t fight sin on our own. We need Him.
David messed up bad but the Lord didn’t abandon him. He was patient with him even when he was blinded.
He was blinded for nine months but the Lord never left. When the baby was born the Lord sent Nathan.
We need His mercy and grace more than we know. We will fall, we will make mistakes but the Lord
will not abandon us when we do. He will pick us up, He will confront us and He will deliver us.
But the biggest thing we need to overcome is thinking the Lord’s plan for our life, His goodness, and His
mercy stops when we mess up.
That’s not true. There is hope. Let me show you why I think so,
“David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went to her and lay with her; and she bore a son and she
called his name Solomon. And the Lord loved [the child].
He sent [a message] by the hand of Nathan the prophet, and [Nathan] called the boy’s [special]
name Jedidiah [beloved of the Lord], because the Lord [loved the child].”
2 Samuel 12:24, 25
Out of the horrible mess David was in, the Lord turned it into something beautiful. And that’s how
good Yeshua is. David’s life was not over. The Lord didn’t take back all the amazing things He promised
him. I think of David’s other wives, Abigail to be precise. She was amazing. Surely YAH could have used
her to show David how great, and amazing He was?? He didn’t. Instead, He took a
horrible moment, a terrible situation in David’s life and turned it around into something beautiful.
There is a lesson here for all of us. The Lord can take what’s painful, what’s horrible and turn it into
something beautiful. David could not take the glory for what happened. All glory went to YAH.
It was very clear He had performed a miracle in His life.
Don’t throw in the towel today. You may be in distress, guilty, condemned because of something
you have done but the Lord can turn it around. He has not abandoned you friend. He has not
turned His back on you. And that is why He is our God!
No matter how dark your past has been, He can and will light it up. There is nothing too hard for
the Lord. Put all your hope in Him. Call out to Him. Don’t stay silent.
With that have a great weekend friends….
Blessings to you.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord.
And He answered me.”
There is a place to run to when we are in trouble.
There is a Person to turn to when things go bad.
His name is Yeshua. He hears our prayers. He ALWAYS hears us.
Pray to Him with confidence. When you are in trouble call out to Him.
He wants to help you. He wants to carry you out of the pit you are in. Put aside the lie that says He is
not listening. It’s not true.
“I love the Lord, because He has heard [and now hears] my voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.”
Psalm 116:1, 2
He hears and He answers. That’s the way He does it. Don’t remain silent. Open your mouth and
pray to Him as long as you live……
“For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are
everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all
“His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations”
This verse has been on my heart this week. The Lord is so
faithful. This past week has been interesting because I have
been reminded about the things I am trusting God for. Those
things haven’t come to pass as yet. Nothing seems to be
happening. I have asked God the “why” question and the
“when” question and as I have done that the scripture I shared
has been bubbling in my spirit. Even in the “hard to understand
times” God is faithful!
“His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations”
It may “seem” like nothing is happening at the moment but
the Lord is faithful! He really is….
The word says “His faithfulness and truth endure to ALL
God was faithful to Abraham when He told him to
leave his home to go to a place he didn’t know.
“The Lord had said to Abraham, “Leave your native country,
your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land
that I will show you.”
A hundred and one things could of gone wrong for Abraham.
Leaving what you know to go to a place you have
never seen and never heard of is crazy right.
But Abraham obeyed and went and God’s faithfulness protected
him as he went. God blessed Abraham, protected him and
directed his every step. Abraham had favor where he went.
That was God’s faithfulness operating in his life.
The Lord was faithful to Adam and Eve when they ate of the
tree that God told them not to eat. They were doomed when they
ate the fruit. The enemy had won if it wasn’t for God’s
faithfulness to Adam and Eve! (Genesis 3)
Without God’s faithfulness we would be doomed.
“His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations”
Generations later we see God’s faithfulness in the life of Hannah.
She was barren and because of that she was constantly
ridiculed by Peninnah. It seemed like Peninnah would be
victorious. It seemed like her negative words would ring
true in Hannah’s life.
“So Peninnah would taunt Hannah and make fun of her because
the Lord had kept her from having children.
Year after year it was the same – Peninnah would taunt Hannah
as they went to the tabernacle.
Each time, Hannah would be reduced to tears and would not
1 Samuel 1:6, 7
But God was faithful to Hannah! He answered her prayer and
granted her heart’s desire by giving her a child, Samuel!
Year after year it seemed like nothing was happening for
Hannah. There was no relief from the taunting. But God is
faithful and even in that dark time God’s faithfulness prevailed.
Because of God’s faithfulness Hannah had a child and
a testimony! (1 Samuel 2)
“And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from
God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home
is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be
His people. God Himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear
from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or
crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
God’s faithfulness is everlasting. Even in the end of time we see
Throughout scripture we see God’s faithfulness. Generation after
generation we see His faithfulness at work. His faithfulness
was at work then and it’s at work now. I know things don’t
seem to be happening right now but God is faithful.
Last month I went on tour to Zambia and I was involved in
a very serious car accident. I was supposed to be dead. At the very
least I was supposed to be seriously injured but because of
God’s faithfulness I escaped unscathed.
When my country came to a standstill in 2008 with no food
in the country and our dollar crashing it was God’s faithfulness
that kept me. When I didn’t know where the next meal would
come from God was faithful. So no matter what is happening
or not happening at the moment I know God is faithful!
Why I am sharing this with you? I am sharing this with you
because no matter what you going through know that God
is faithful. Troubles will come in their droves but
God is faithful and He will deliver you from them all!
He was faithful yesterday, He is faithful today and He
will still be faithful tomorrow!
His faithfulness will outlive us all!!
Because He is faithful your darkness will turn to light.
Because He is faithful everything will turn out alright.
The enemy will not win over you because of God’s faithfulness!
You will have a testimony because of His faithfulness.
Because of His faithfulness your posterity is blessed!
It will take all of eternity
to write of God’s faithfulness so as I close my hope is that you
will get a revelation of God’s faithfulness in your life.
I hope the very few stories I have
shared will encourage you to rely on His faithfulness in your hard
times. In the dark know He is faithful.
His faithfulness might not manifest itself in the way we expect and
the time we expect but know this, He is faithful! That truth is
irrefutable! Have a blessed day friends…….
We are going through a difficult time in our nation Zimbabwe.
Just look at the news and you will see
what I mean. In this kind of atmosphere it is very easy
to think ones life is pointless and aimless. Can God make a way
for us in such darkness?
Is this intense darkness stronger than God’s glorious
How will God’s plan work itself in such circumstances?
You may be in the same situation I am in, a situation where
things seem so bleak, so dark. What is the answer?
For the answer, let’s go to the word.
There is a man I would like to talk
about. Things looked bleak for him. His life
seemed like it was over. There was no answer in sight for him.
His name was Aeneas!
“Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he went
down also to the saints who lived at Lydda.
There he found a man named Aeneas, who had been bedfast
for eight years and was paralysed. “
Acts 9: 32, 33
Aeneas was paralysed. His circumstances told him his life was
over. He couldn’t move.
He was bed-ridden for eight years and paralysed. I can’t
imagine how he felt. Did he have hope things would turn around?
I highly doubt it. But even though he was bed-ridden for eight
years God had a plan for his life. Even though he was paralysed
God had a plan.
“And Peter said to him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [now]
makes you whole. Get up and make your bed! And immediately
[Aeneas] stood up.
Then all the inhabitants of Lydda and the plain of Sharon saw
[what had happened to] him and they turned to the Lord.”
Acts 9:34, 35
Did you see that? ALL the inhabitants saw what happened
and turned to the Lord! It’s amazing to think the key to a
whole town’s deliverance and salvation came through a
paralysed man! The enemy had a plan for Aeneas and we know
this because sickness and death are not part of God’s plan. It’s
the enemy that kills, steals and destroys.
But God’s plan prevailed because God is always stronger
than the enemy. There is not a time the enemy is stronger than
When I read this story I was in awe. How God works is beyond
what you and I can comprehend.
I don’t know if Aeneas knew what God was going to do.
I don’t know if he knew God would use him to turn the hearts
of an entire town or city…..
What I do know is that Aeneas had been bed-ridden for eight
years and was paralysed but God had a plan for him. No matter
how bleak things seem God has a plan. No matter how dark
things may appear God has a plan. His plan will prevail.
Trust in the Lord.
That’s my declaration.
God bless you friends….

They needed You Lord…….
The enemy was not far behind…..
Not just any army, but one of the best armies in the world….
Death, murder was on their minds….
As the people turned away they were faced with the Red Sea…..
All hope was lost, we are doomed they cried out….
“Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have
taken us away to die in the wilderness?” Exodus 14:11
“There is no where to run to” they thought….
“We are trapped” they thought…..
“God has abandoned us” they thought…..
As they looked out at the Red Sea that is all they saw….
They failed to see the deliverance of God as they looked out…
We know the story well. We know God came through. He
parted the Red Sea and the Egyptians all died!
But I want to show you something I saw the other day.
The Israelites looked at the Red Sea and saw a dead end but
this is what the word says:
Your way [in delivering Your people] was through the sea, and Your paths through the great waters, yet Your footsteps were not traceable, but were obliterated. (Psalm 77:19 AMP)
God’s deliverance was through the Red Sea!!!
What does that mean?
You may be in a hard place with no way out but God will
make a way for you.
You may think you are doomed and the enemy has won
but God will make a way for you!
He will part a Red Sea if He needs to…..!
You may feel trapped but He will free you…..
The enemy may seem strong and powerful but against
God they are powerless to do anything to us……
As you look out at the Red Sea see the deliverance of God!!
He will come through for you…..
The way may seem closed, like the enemy has won but
that is not true!!!! There is a way!
We serve a mighty God indeed…..
He is our Deliverer!
Look out across your Red Sea and see the deliverance of God!
THOUGHT OF THE DAY.
When fear bangs and kicks on my door, screaming and shouting, demanding to be heard, I look to You Lord! I look to You……
I believed (trusted in, relied on, and clung to my God), and therefore have I spoken [even when I said], I am greatly afflicted. Psalms 116:10
This scripture is so deep. The author had a lot of things going on. He was in great affliction according to the word. What really ministers to me about him is, he didn’t hide the fact he was going through tough times. We need to acknowledge when we going through those times. We are helping no one by smiling and hiding what’s really going on. He was not afraid to admit he was going through stuff but he didn’t stop there. His faith was in God. The amplified says he trusted, relied on and clung to God! There was a desperation in him. Even though he was going through hell he knew there was Something bigger than the hell he was facing. This is the important part, as he believed he spoke! His last word was what he believed about God. He didn’t complain or murmur and accuse God, no! He spoke about his deliverance.
Things may be hard for you now. You may see no way out but know God is your deliverance. But your deliverance will not just come. You need to speak it out. it’s OK to admit you going through hell but don’t stop there, let your last word be about your deliverer!!!! What God has said to you should be the last thing that comes out of your mouth!! Cling onto God. No matter how fierce the storm gets, hold on. Don’t let go. Hang on to God with everything you have got and keep on speaking your deliverance.
