DaFruits of 2013.❤
I can’t sleep again! I guess it’s cos I’m so excited about 2014!
God has been so good so faithful, and I’m so grateful.
2012 New Year’s Eve I discovered that I had a passion for sharing His Word.
2013 my relationship grew stronger and stronger with The Lord as I spent more time in His presence and in His Word.
This year I graduated I’ve shared this testimony on twitter before when I was in first year I was so afraid of the course that I had chosen to study computer science, I thought I had made a huge mistake lol.
I kept praying and praying to The Lord to reveal to me whether I should stay on this course or change because we had the opportunity to change to a different computing course.
I prayed and He answered saying “why are you afraid of a challenge?” This Word has stuck with me ever since.
So I continued with the course and no everything wasn’t rosy from the start, in fact I struggled through the most part of my study.
It was my last year of study that I enjoyed most, and even though it was supposed to feel even harder than my previous years of study it didn’t feel like it, I felt more joy more peace and I felt that way because I turned away from leaning on my own understanding.
When it came to my final year that’s when I was just like you know what Lord I cannot do this on my own, I’ve tried with my own strength and I am not excelling, I need You Lord.
I learnt to depend on Him, I learnt to give Him my time and make Him my priority even in my course of study which previously I wasn’t doing I wasn’t spending much time with The Lord, I didn’t take my time to read His Word, I worked most Sundays which at the time I did not see anything wrong with because I thought God would understand that I needed to make a bit of money on the side, but it wasn’t just that.
I was putting most things before God and because of that it was difficult for me to hear from Him, I didn’t really have a relationship with Him.
So it was only when I put Him first no matter what I was doing that things became a lot more easier.
Though the enemy tried to distract me throw me of course, confuse me, discourage me, God encouraged me, strengthened me, enlightened me, and gave me a sound mind in the midst of anything that the enemy tried to throw at me I remained victorious, and oh the enemy did try and oh how the enemy failed. The enemy is after nothing more than your destiny he knows what the will of God is for your life and he will try to discourage you from fulfilling it, you mustn’t let him succeed.
Go for whatever it is that The Lord is calling you or has been calling you to do this 2014 even if it goes against your original plans.
We all have dreams but it’s only The Lord that can make all this dreams come true, if it’s not His perfect will then it is in vain.
I trusted Him with everything and He faithfully saw me through and indeed I graduated.
So the more I spent time in His Word the easier it became for me to discover who I am in the body of Christ, which is in fact the same as discovering His perfect will.
His purpose for my life is ministry, and this year has been a testament to that.
When I started twitter I didn’t tweet mostly about God, I hardly spent time on there sharing His Word.
So when my tweets changed I was like wow where did that come from?
I became so passionate about sharing His Word and encouraging others. Encouraging others is what I love doing and when I do share His encouraging Word, the word doesn’t come from me, it comes by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Often I’m just so amazed at what He reveals to me.
I’m so grateful for the new amazing friendships God has blessed me with as I have embarked on this new amazing journey. It is so encouraging to see a generation on fire for God!
The enemy hates the word of God he hates the truth, and sharing His Word has taught me that.
I’ve had people curse me, curse the word of God, complain about how much I share His Word, why? Because His Word is the truth it is sharper than a two edged sword piercing through the joints and marrow.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Why? Because the world hates God and embraces the lie, the enemy.
I’ve had people try to go into politics and debate with me about what His Word says it’s like they want me to change what it says in His Word and when I tell them they get upset lol. I’m not sorry for telling the truth, not gonna water it down, not gonna compromise.
Forever His Word is settled, yes and amen.
I do thank God for Ricky Gervais and his friends it was in the summer that I recall tweeting something like ‘God let the deaf hear and let the blind see’.
They all responded in anger and sarcasm, they did not understand that I was asking The Lord to open their spiritual eyes and ears.
To understand His Word our spiritual eyes and ears has got to be opened, for His Word is Spirit and truth but anyway I didn’t bother to argue, there’s no point really lol.
‘How can God heal the blind and the deaf is He a doctor?’ Most of them responded. My answer to Ricky and friends is that yes God can heal the blind and the deaf both spiritually and physically for He is a healer a miracle working God.
I’m so glad that the word of God causes conviction even in our day and age.
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:19
Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; John 12:42
for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. John 12:43
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Matthew 5:11
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:12
So far The Lord has been preparing through writing I mean writing has been my passion since I can remember, but I remember specifically when I was a teenager, The Lord wanting me to write a book when I on my testimony to encourage others, I believe that book is coming very soon by the grace of God.
This year has been my preparation season, next year is my birthing season and I am so looking forward to that season.
A few weeks ago I was afraid of that season. I wanted to hide behind writing because that’s my comfort zone, and public speaking isn’t.
The Lord reminded me that it’s not by my might nor is it by my power but by His Spirit says The Lord when I write it’s not by my might nor is it by my power but by His Spirit, and the same way it will be when I speak or preach.
It’s not by the carnal mind or tongue but by the leading of the sweet Holy Spirit.
Thank You Lord for this amazing year, thank You for preparing me, Thank You Lord for teaching me to let things go and make room for You.
Let go of the relationships that do not please God and compromise your faith, trust me I’ve been there and it’s not worth it. The enemy oh how he loves to steal our time and if we give it to him he will surely take advantage of it, so in 2014 lets not make the same mistakes. Give your time to God, He deserves our time because He himself has given us time. Don’t rush into anything, wait on God for His perfect timing.
You are precious in His sight wait for the best, for that is what He has promised His children the heirs to His kingdom.
The Lord is raising up a generation of young people to glorify His name and preach the gospel!
In 2014 be about Your Father’s business it’s all about Him. Put God first.
Minister if God has called you to minister, go for whatever The Lord is calling You to do!
Appreciate humble beginnings, lean on God and not yourself.
Trust in His Word.
The Lord revealed to me the concept of my blog DaFruits, He doesn’t intend it to stay that way there is so much ideas that The Lord has given me to make the vision become a reality, and I thank God.
Don’t be afraid, don’t doubt, see what God sees.
God already sees you there in greatness, see yourself also in greatness, have faith and believe that you are victorious because our God is victory.
Thank You for the great journey ahead.
