We have a greater covenant
Yes, I have a greater covenant
The finished work at Calvary

By it I have the assurance
His words shall STAND, they shall be
Yes, yes Promise Keeper is who He is

I know it shall be, because of Calvary
Yes, I know because the word became flesh
That I, yes even I might live in His power.

I recall a song from my preteen years: ‘Come ye out now from amongst them, come ye out and be ye separate, says the Lord and touch nothing unclean, come ye out*’

The choice of friends, co-workers, neighbours we make, directly determines the quality of life one would have. Either a life of purpose or one of no purpose. Purpose in the sense of what God has called me to be, do and have. Excluding totally what we may have called ourselves to, or think we are called to.

Come ye out signifies a separation, calling by God unto good works and His purpose.

Abram received such a call. In the place of fully being out from his brethren i.e. Lot, came the word of God to him with the promise to keep in front.

At each point, he took partial steps to come him out, His purpose remained veiled. Thus he walked with a now the Lord had said instruction. The Lord said to Abram resumed upon full compliance with his separation. The ability to heed the call in total obedience was a huge step towards actualising his purpose.
Everyone of us has a come ye out call upon our lives. A call to be used by God for a specific purpose and to a specific people.

We are all vessels, fit and put together for a purpose. In the midst of everyone else, it is easy, oh so easy to flow with the tide and not recognise our purpose differs. In the place of separation, we clearly hear our call and the attendant promise and instruction. We receive our life’s baton when we opt to heed.

Generally, as vessels there is the come ye out from sin, come ye out from the scornful, come ye out of everything unpleasing to God, that ye may be vessels unto honour, fit for the Masters use.

*Song from Happiness Club, UNIPORT Branch.

The union (if I may use that word) of any two individuals is important.

Who you walk with is key. Who you run with is key. The outcome of your life and all that concerns you rests on this. How you choose your partners is key too.
Relatives we cannot choose generally but should we decided to work with them, live with them, we have chosen.

More than we might realise, God is interested with whom we partner: – in our businesses, in ministry, in relationships broadly and most definitely marriage.
For each partner, there would be a corresponding instruction and leading. Where to go, who to go the journey with, why you should go the journey together.

God is purposeful, in all of His ways, nothing has ever been done by God without purpose. The partners we pick or are picked by must be ones of purpose. Purpose that gladdens God’s heart, partners that are pleasing unto God, made just for the scenario.
When you think partners, think – suitable, comparative to, equally yoked, helpmeet, approved of God.

The power and authority
The power to heal

For the ones oppressed.
The ones still under the fear of death
It was the accompanying sign
Of the good news
Of the Kingdom of God

When it was given, the disciples were sent: from village to village, from town to town, that was all they had. No fanfare, no celebrity status, simply as they are they went.
You see the excellence of them was off Him not of themselves. Having nothing else besides what they had been given, it was easy to understand they were the vessels through which he touched them.

The gifting and talent
The gifts diverse

For the body of Christ
The edification of the saints of God
That we all might grow into Him
Showing forth His glory
Showing forth the kingdom of God

When He gave, it was that we all would yet function fully in our roles in the whole. For the whole is a beacon yet still. The blinding lights, the stage, were to point to Him never to the vessel.
You see the excellency is not of the possessor of the gifting. It is a pointer, a sign post to the One over All and above all. That men may see and be drawn to Him. Not to create super stars as the world.

5 and 2
Food for 1
For 5,000 and counting

Knowledge has a beautiful way of colouring ones’ sight. The power of knowledge. Beyond of God all things are possible to another level of I have been empowered to do way, way, much way beyond what I do.
He took
He looked to heaven
He blessed
He brake
He gave

For now, I still ponder: why 50?
You see if there was ever a PURPOSEFUL One that walked the face of this earth at some point – it was Him. Truly he is the One who has walked the face of this earth with steps ladened by purpose.
As He is – We are
AS He is – I am
As He is – I am

Not any less, no, same, equal, co-heirs, siblings…hallelujah!!!

Steps – purpose filled
Sight – coloured with knowledge of who I am.

You see nothing is ever truly not enough. A little is all that’s needed. For I have been blessed, to be fruitful, to multiply, to replenish, to subdue, to have dominion. That’s why the Lord can save whether by many or by a few. A number of conquests in the Old Testament do show He chose to triumph by a few.

The numbers were not to be deterrent but a statement to all. God in 1, God in 2, God with 1, God with 2, there is nothing and no one that can withstand.

To see as He sees, I need to seat more at His feet. You see the more I understand who I am in Him, the more I begin to fully live and function the way I ought.

So I shall check my sight through the washing of His words and allow enlightenment pull down every scale dark and dreary.

Or what woman who has 10 silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? Luke 15: 8

If does loses one coin…
Have you lost anything – divine health, physical property, peace of mind, joy…

Does not light a lamp
Have you opened God’s word? You never know how practical for daily living the word is until you open it. It is the light we use to see, to know how to respond per time, how to act.

Sweep the house and search carefully…
Word study always does good. To study the scriptures is setting up oneself to be well knowledge, to be learned in ways beyond your imaginations.

So I ask have you lost anything lately? Is there a void you’ve tried to fill but not yet has satisfied?
Open the word, go to the bible…. Do come back so I can rejoice with you upon your finding it.

We see them
Their service though invisible
We do see them

Communication we call them
Errand runners I have come to know
That’s what they are

Seeds they are
Sown to bear fruits of its masters
Seeds we see their fruits

None is truly empty
They carry weight: to heal or break
Weighty they sure are

Sometimes planting
Sometimes uprooting and destroying
Their purpose prospects

Gracious it is
Attractive too it is
Life it carries
