Should You Take A Chill Pill ?


Hello from the other side. don’t worry, am not Adele but seriously, Hello !!

It’s a beautiful morning in Southampton, UK and I am just walking up Winchester Road, meditating on the scriptures when something dawned on me. Do you realize that one of the most difficult things to do as a believer in Jesus Christ is to BE STILL in the midst of a storm? We have this urge to do something. It’s even worse when you are a natural problem solver or a solution provider like me, you just want to do something. Yet, we were given a perfect example of what to do, in the gospel according to Mark chapter 4, it says "Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”.

Do you see the silly question Jesus's disciples asked him simply because he was sleeping through the storm? I can’t even imagine someone asking the Lord "Do you not care?”. This is exactly what we do when we are going through challenges, we automatically think that it is a time to cast and bind, to argue, to analyze, dissect and figure out where we went wrong or where someone else went wrong. One thing we do forget is the simple act of being at PEACE. In verse 39 of this scripture, it gives us a clear picture of how Jesus handled the storm.

"And He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Hush, be still." And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. 40 And He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?

You are not reading this message by accident, DO YOU STILL HAVE NO FAITH? I have learnt a valuable lesson in the past 3 months. Having experienced the most horrible battles and trials of my life, having experienced a massive attack on my business, ministry and career, I have learnt the valuable and precious lesson of being still and knowing that God is God. Right now, I can tell you that all things are good and falling into place. I didn't have to fight excessively and wail over it. My fight was in PEACE, TRUSTING THAT GOD CARES and FAITH-FULLNESS IN HIS MIGHTY POWER TO INTERVENE AS THE OMNI-POTENT LORD OF THE ANGEL ARMIES. 

My dear friend, it doesn't matter what you are going through right now, it doesn't matter how ugly the situation is. It may be more messed than the word messed up but I urge you to try and be at peace. The Almighty Is On your Case. If it’s difficult having peace in your situation, Philippians 4:6-7 says " Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." 

Jesus Christ himself also said in John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

So, BE BOLD! I had a messed up January, February and 1st week of March 2016 but today I am happy and everything is falling back into place. Why? It is simple, I had peace and full trust in the Lord.

You can have it to. If you want to experience this peace, just repeat this prayer with me

"Heavenly Father, I hand over my situation to you
I believe in your absolute power of all things
I trust in you with all my heart, soul and body
and I ask you to take absolute pre-eminence in my life
Holy Spirit of God, come and take over
Jesus Christ come into my Life
Give me the peace that cuts across all understanding 
Fix every error of commission and omission
Set me Free and Bless me
Thank you for it is done
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

If you made that prayer, this is the word of the Lord to you.

“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth. “Psalm 46: 10 -11
