New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Remain In The Light‘


I have come as a Light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer wander in the darkness. If anyone hears me and doesn’t obey me, I am not his judge—for I have come to save the world and not to judge it. (John 12:46-47 TLB)

God has shown me how important it is to speak out and tell others about the darkness that is in the world. When we walk in sin, we are in darkness. It is only when we repent from our sins and ask God to forgive us our sins, and accept that Jesus died for our sins that He comes into our hearts and lives in us; through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. As we lean, depend, and rely upon Him to show us the truth; the darkness has no more power or control over us. God’s Word, is Light and we must hear and obey Him. When our behaviour steps out of His Light into darkness, we realise that we have forsaken His words. But we don’t have to remain there. We can get back into God’s words. Hear them and obey them. There’s no other way to escape the darkness and no other way to remain in the light. We must remain in God’s words daily – to love Christ, to grow our faith; to become His true disciple, to know the truth, this is when we remain free.

                                                      Prayer

Heavenly Father, how grateful and thankful I am to Your precious Son Jesus Christ. Through the Cross of Calvary, He took all my sins, and has paid my sin debt in full. His Blood has cleansed and purified me from all my sin He has paid my sin debt in full. Never again do I want to walk in the darkness, and with the help of God’s Holy Spirit; He keeps me in the truth when I abide in His word and continue to obey Him the darkness has no more control or power over me. I have been set free in Christ’s precious name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Be Humble‘

And now this word to all of you: You should be like one big happy family, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t snap back at those who say unkind things about you. Instead, pray for God’s help for them, for we are to be kind to others, and God will bless us for it. (1 Peter 3:8-9 TLB)

God has shown me I must be sympathetic towards others, loving them with a tender heart and a humble mind. Being responsive to others needs before my own needs. This is one of the reasons He placed me on earth so that I might become a beacon of His light to others and an encouragement to the world. When I give hope to others, before long they give it to others still … and eventually it comes back to me. As I go about my tasks, I can celebrate the good I can find in others. As the old saying goes, “When someone does something good, applaud them. If we follow God in faith, through Jesus Christ; in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God, we will be able to see the greatness of God. He will shower all of His blessings upon us; as we walk with Him.

                                                           Prayer

Precious God, how thankful and grateful I am to You, for showing me how to be sympathetic towards others. Help me to walk constantly in the supernatural power of the Spirit of God, relying and depending upon Him to show me how He wants me to behave towards others in the name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God’s Teachings‘

Then Jesus told them this: “If I am merely boasting about myself, it doesn’t count. But it is my Father—and you claim him as your God—who is saying these glorious things about me. But you do not even know him. I do. If I said otherwise, I would be as great a liar as you! But it is true—I know him and fully obey him. (John 8:54-55 TLB)

In God’s Word, it teaches us who God is. It teaches us about our Father, His Son Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit of God, they are the Trinity and the Godhead, and you cannot have One without the Other. If you do not have the Trinity living in your mind, heart, spirit, and soul you will not know God the Father, His Son; and the Holy Spirit of God. It is God’s Spirit, who shows us the truth of who our Father is. When we surrender our lives to His lordship, we are saying we believe in Him in our faith. We then have an ever-increasing desire to obey His words. Our faith to obey His teachings will create a growing intimacy with our Father, Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit of God. They continue to manifest Themselves within us by abiding in us.

                                                             Prayer

Heavenly Father, I do believe in You and Your precious Son Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit of God, in faith. I surrender and submit to Your perfect will. I am willing to obey You and obey Your commandments and grow in an ever-increasing intimacy with You to the glory, praise, of our Heavenly Father. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God’s Plan’s‘


For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 TLB)

God has made a plan for my life and has laid out His plans before the foundation of the world. Each day I trust Him to guide and lead me on the path He has marked out for me. He has never intended as a human being, I should walk the path alone. He does not want me to walk alone. God Himself will help me and He will bring to me the relationships He wants me to have. He will also provide men and women – fellow believers – to come along side me as encouragers, mentors, friends, and co-labours.

                                                              Prayer

Gracious God, how grateful and thankful I am to You for the plans You have made for my life before the foundation of the world, and You have laid out Your plans for me. Each day I trust You to guide and lead me into the path You have marked out for me. Thank You that You do not want me to walk alone but You are with me every step of the way. You have specifically appointed the right people You want me to have relationships with. How thankful I am to You because You know what is right and best for me in Jesus Christ’ name I pray. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Sowing Seeds‘

Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get plenty of them!” So we did, and couldn’t draw in the net because of the weight of the fish, there were so many! (John 21:6 TLB)

It is really hard to believe in the unseen, but asking the Holy Spirit of God, in the name of Jesus, to give us the faith to believe what we cannot see. Many times I have failed to accomplish what I have wanted to achieve because I did not go to Jesus first. He constantly has to remind me to look to Him for the direction He wants me to take. Looking to Jesus, and trusting Him, just as the disciples did when He commanded them to cast their nets on the right-hand side of the boat, when they did this; and obeyed His command, they received their reward they caught so many fish. Jesus could see what they could not see and He is doing the same for me. Jesus has shown me that I must jump out of my boat and into His words. I must listen for His instructions and follow them. He will fill my nets enabling me to be a fisherman of men. When I do this my joy will overflow, I will bear much fruit, and My Father will be glorified through my witness and testimony what He has done for me.

                                                             Prayer

Holy Spirit, thank You for bringing Your word into the light for me. I shall look to Jesus and continue to ask Him, for His instructions; and guidance in what He wants me to do. Help me to sow the seeds of God, reaching the very heart and core of His people, bearing much fruit for the glory, praise, and honour of Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Following Jesus‘

“Why are you crying?” he asked her. “Whom are you looking for?” She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.” (John 20:15 TLB)

Following Jesus Christ, is so important to me. It was when I was in hospital that I made a commitment to God. In the early hours of the morning I found myself asking God to forgive me all my sins. He came into my heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul, and said to me, “Avril, everything that had been wrong in your life, I the Lord, Your God will put all things right.” I knew God had spoken to me and I had met with God personally. I now live in the Light with Christ, and never want to go back into darkness ever again. Now I am able to glorify the Father through Jesus Christ’s name in faith. When I seek Jesus, my unbelief, grieving, and sadness goes. It has taken me quite a while to get to this place with Him. He has shown me when I allow unbelief in my life it renders me fruitless, and My Father wants me to bear much fruit. My unbelief has been replaced by faith, and my fears and sorrows has been replaced with courage and joy! What a joy Jesus is to me. Through the Holy Spirit of God, He is developing my relationship daily, as I walk with Him.

                                                                 Prayer

Heavenly Father, how grateful I am to You, for sending Your One and Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ, to die for all of my sin. Thank You that He has cleansed and purified and washed my sins away through His Shed Blood. What a joy He is to me through Your Holy Spirit, He enables and empowers me to follow Him with courage, joy, and faithfulness always and forever more. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Devastating Trials‘

“Put your sword away. Shall I not drink from the cup the Father has given me?”
(John 18:11 TLB)

Jesus knows all about my devastating trials, like Peter, I have tried to work my way out of them. He has shown me sometimes my Father has a greater purpose than merely eliminating or solving a problem. When I learnt what Jesus wanted me to do, I just followed Him, and He showed me the ultimate victory will always mine, even in death. So, now when the trials come to me, I am not worried or troubled. I run to Christ Jesus, and I talk to Him about everything I may have in my life where I need Him to help me. I cast all of my cares and worries upon Him, because He cares for me. I fast, pray, and abide in His word. I listen to the Holy Spirit of God, as He whispers in my ear. I know that even the worst trials are only temporary, and they are producing for me treasures in heaven that are eternal. I trust in Jesus Christ completely.

                                                             Prayer

Father, thank You so much for showing me how to handle devastating trials. Through Jesus Christ my precious Lord, He always shows me the way out. I know whatever trials I may have to go through in life, God will work out all things for my own good. I praise and thank Him now and forever more in Jesus name. His grace is sufficient for me, for His words power is perfected in weakness. Amen.
