Jesus, the lover of your soul

Jesus, the lover of your soul

by Toyosi Adegunle
Let's do a quick English exercise, you may want to check your dictionary for the meaning of FRAIL. Here's what I found when I checked - frail means easily broken, fragile, quick to fall. Whewww! This meaning put perspective on the state of the soul of man. I sincerely wonder why we are always quick to forget good deeds, forget the sermon, and don't take actions, forget to do the right things. 

Have you wondered too? 

I had always heard people recite this verse in church and other places:  “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬. Every time I hear it, I ask myself why David had to tell his soul to bless the Lord at all times and not forget his benefits; must-have been that he probably forgets to honour God, he forgets to obey God, he forgets to give thanks, he forgets to do the right thing, right? 

Do you sometimes forget to act on the word of God? Do you forget to thank God for what he did for you yesterday? Do you forget to pray, worship, and fellowship with God? Yes? It's okay if your answer is yes because you're not alone. This is something believers struggle with and it is only because our souls are frail, they are works in progress, they are on the journey of becoming, they are gradually in the process of perfection, and God still never leaves you on this journey. 

It is so sweet to know that even when your soul forgets, even if your soul is imperfect, even when your soul falls and fails God, even when your soul cannot act upon the word of God, God the lover of your soul is there, always. 

Every time you go to God in total honesty in worship, prayer, or fellowship, there's a transmission of light, power, glory, and strength unto your soul. For this reason, don't focus on your weaknesses, imperfections, or frailty, think of the benefits of constantly going to God even in your weak state. To be honest, only God can satisfy your soul. Food, drug, sex, money, scholarships, and other physical things can't satisfy you or make you feel better at any point, only God can. Why not focus on constantly going to God for the things that only he can provide - healing, strength, growth, joy, true love, fellowship. 

Your soul is on a journey, embrace the process. God is the destination of your soul. God is perfection. God is the totality your soul is coming to. He is the lover of your soul.

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast  By Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hello, welcome to my blog. If you clicked on this link it’s either you’re fasting already or are planning to fast. The good thing is you’re planning to have an effective fast by seeking all the information you can get on this. I won’t waste much of your time and I’ll get into it. Don’ts of fasting -  Have a Transactional mindset : A long time ago I thought fasting was about doing something so God will bless you. This led to a string of disappointment because I never got what I wanted from him. After all, I deprived myself for God but He didn’t do his part. We must first understand that fasting is not to move God, it’s to help us align with the move he’s made. The bible says in Ephesians 1.3 (NKJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. God is always on our side, we need not deal with him on a transaction basis. We fast to tra

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co
