I'm learning & experiencing new and great things.........

Hello everyone, how've we been doing and how was your weekend? Happy father's day to all dads out there, and potential soon to be dads (Insert Dr Andy here)lol.

I've been having quite a lot of AHA moments with God lately, and each one is as new as it has never been heard or read before (if you know what i mean?). I was meant to share a different one with you all, but i found myself typing this out. Please take time to read this particular passage below, and also listen to the song playing on this page (That's my main testimony) God has been way too much for me.

2nd Chronicles 7 vs 14:

If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
First thing i said to myself was, This passage can't be referring to me 'cos ..... (I was trying to justify myself) and suddenly, i heard His voice say "Doesn't this reveal to you that you're not being humble?". Isn't it amazing how God puts us in Check? (for me that was one of many ways). Here He was telling me that i needed to be humble and tell Him i was wrong for anything and everything i had done. In the Bible language and harsh words to my ears interprets it as : "Rinsola, you were wrong and it means you sinned!!!!".
Rinsola: but God don't i pray? You know i pray everyday, don't you?
God: You and i know what you always pray for, but never forget that the prayers of a sinner is an abomination unto My sight, and that of a righteous, better still humble man availeth much.
Rinsola: Insert confused look here @ the hearing of abomination!
As i sat down, He ministered to me what these sins could be either time wastage, prayerlessness, envy, malice, I'm just keeping away from her when i know in my mind it spells malice, greed, impure thoughts, just a joke lie, disobedience, pride, I don't have time for people like that, pretence, jealousy, taking that pen from your office to your house, hidden inside the heart sins that only the Spirit of God can discern. (REALITY CHECK!!!)
Rinsola: what? meaning WE all sin EVERY SINGLE DAY? (Not that i didn't know, but within me i was referring to great men of God).You can insert whoever's name you want to insert there, and answer to God when you're done (lol)
I now see why he wants us to HUMBLE ourselves. Many times we don't even know we have sinned. But He says that if we confess our faults, He is faithful and just to forgive them (I John 1vs 9).
2nd Chronicles 7vs 14b to me was like " Rinsola do your own part, and watch if i wouldn't do Mine".
Rinsola's job .............God's Job
  1. If i Humble myself......... ..... ........He will Hear me (He would pay attention to me
  2. If i Pray & Seek His face............. He will forgive me (for every single sin/fault)
  3. If i turn from my wicked ways...He will Heal my land (My body, mind and soul)

I was humbled yet again by this passage and for me I've just been learning new things in my renewed walk with God. These few weeks have been challenging, yet mind blowing. I challenge you all who are not presently or genuinely in tune with Him to get back to your take me as i am walk with God, and begin first by seeking His face and i can assure you that you would be shocked at the things He will begin to show you and what He will begin to do. If you want to know what He's been doing in my life, i suggest you borrow the video of my recent weeks with Him from Him. You will rewind, pause, think, rewind, and keep rewinding I CAN ASSURE YOU!!!

Take care of yourselves, have a great week ahead, and let us remember to "Humble ourselves, pray, seek His face (on everything) and turn from our wicked ways". Much love!

Humility really is what God desires, I was reading James 4 today and it says humble yourself in the sight of the lord and he will lift you up... imagine,the key to being promoted, to going higher is to be humble before God, no high mindedness. seeking his face, as James also says, means draw closer to God and he will draw closer to you... imagine, we have to do the drawing then he will respond.
well done on a well written and inspiring piece.
