HOW TO GAIN SATISFACTION



My throat yearned for the touch of a frozen liquid. It had been trapped hours behind the microphone ministering to eager young people.
I took the first can of malt I was offered. Uuuh-aaaah!!! My mouth gasped aloud in delight. It felt good to finally feel that cold 'ting' flood my throat. However, few moments later, I was set to prepare my body for bedtime when I realized I was still thirsty. 
I reached for the bottled water by my bed and moans of hmmmmmm, aaaah, yes, escaped my mouth after every major gulp.
My conclusion after that day, chilled malt is nice but water is the answer to actual thirst.

The state “satisfaction” describes the point where expectation, desires or needs are met. Hence, Malt calmed my thirst but didn't satisfy me.

Depths of desires rage within us. Goals stare ahead of us, beckoning on us to grasp the pleasure of accomplishment.
As we journey through the year I will like to share with you God's comfort in the year 2017 and beyond. He says, "BUT YOU would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the ROCK I would satisfy you."Psalms 81:16 (NIV)

A few things we should have in our hearts from this verse are

1.    You would be fed with the finest of wheat: Wheat is a cereal that typifies the substance for quenching hunger, desire, need or expectation in this verse. God says He will give you the best of that which you desire, expect or need.

2.    With honey from the rock I will satisfy you. Have you wondered what rock was been referred to?
Let’s find out
In Deuteronomy 32:4 Scripture says, “He is the rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.”(KJV)
In 1 Peter 2:4, it says “As you come to Him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious.
From the above scriptures and several others like Psalm 118:22, Isaiah 8:13-15, Isaiah 28:16, Matthew 16:18, we see JESUS being referred to as THE ROCK.
So when God says He will satisfy us with honey from the rock, He is saying I will satisfy (satiate your desires, meet your needs, grant your expectations) you with the Honey (sweetness/pleasure) that comes from me.

So technically, Yes God is going to give us the finest of things, people, resources and all we need to accomplish His purpose/assignment on earth this year BUT SATISFACTION, the pleasure of having needs met would only come from our connection with HIM.

I therefore encourage you to not chase after your desires, needs or expectations to the point where you lose touch with CHRIST- THE ROCK because yes you will get all you want but satisfaction is only in HIM.

So enjoy the finest brand of "malt drink" He provides for you this year, but don’t walk away yet because you’re not going to be satisfied until you take the real thing- Honey from the rock (the sweetness that comes from intimacy with JESUS).

Keep your eyes fixed on HIM.
Don’t procrastinate on the assignment.
Enjoy deep intimacy with Him in the word, worship and unrivaled obedience and you will be truly SATISFIED

If you are yet to have a defined relationship/connection with Jesus- the rock, I encourage you to do so now.
Pray this aloud if you’re ready

Lord Jesus, I Confess That I Am A Sinner.
I Agree That You Died To Pay For My Sins And You Rose From The Dead Giving Me Victory Over Sin And Death.
I Surrender To Your Lordship Over My Life.
Wash And Sanctify Me By Your Blood.
I Confess That I Am The Righteousness Of God In You.
I Receive Your Spirit To Dwell In My Heart From This Day Onward,
Amen

WELCOME TO THE YEAR OF SATISFACTION

Committed to your Fulfillment

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
