He Makes Up For Lost Times

If you ever find yourself in a quagmire, or in some unpleasant situation, don’t fret or think that you’re helpless. Don’t say, “This is my worst time in life!” Christ lives in you, and that’s what matters. He’s the restorer of wasted years, time, resources, money, energy, etc. He’ll make up for lost time. No human being or government may ever be able to give back to you what you’ve lost, but God can! He’s the God that “quickens the dead,” that is, gives life to the dead. He can bring back everything, and more!

He can restore peace and order back to your life; you need not fret or be dismayed. Mark 4:37-41 tells a story of how the disciples set their sail, and the winds became boisterous and waves billowed into the boat to sink it. They were really in a fix. But Jesus was at the back of the boat, sleeping. Startled at the ravaging storms and the billowing waves, the disciples woke Him up and said, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?”

Jesus woke up and gave the word, “Peace, be still,” and there was a great calm. It made no difference how strong the tempest was; what mattered was that the Master was in their boat. Same way, Christ is in you today, and by His Spirit, He’ll cause you to be triumphant and laugh your way through life.

Stick to the Word; even when you think time isn’t in your favour to accomplish certain things, don’t push the panic button! Keep your composure; the God who lives in you is the owner of time. He can restore wasted years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds, and even wasted moments. He can move you a hundred paces forward, far ahead of your competitors, detractors and adversaries.

Say these words to yourself now: By the power of the Holy Spirit, I’m making progress, far ahead of my competitors, detractors and adversaries. I’m guided by the Holy Spirit, who also has made my life beautiful and made me the testimony of God’s righteousness and grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Saved by Words

To be “blessed” is not just a religious cliché. It’s a living reality. Rhapsody of Realities is a blessing to families, communities and nations all over the world. In several countries tremendous blessings were recorded as a result of the free distribution of Rhapsody of Realities.

Here’s a remarkable testimony we received from Mary Ann Legaspi in the Phillipines….

“I was so accustomed to the constant use of negative words in my conversations; so much that I speak very carelessly without a thought. A couple of months ago, I had an argument with my husband, I got angry and I talked to him roughly but to my surprise he said to me; “Ann, do not speak negative words, instead speak words in agreement to what the word of God said”. When he was through, I frowned and left the room.

Moments later, after I had calmed down, I wondered why my husband was so calm and nice to me even though I had spoken to him in a wrong manner. Then I remembered he had been reading Rhapsody of Realities every day; he even kept a copy on the shelf. I grabbed the devotional and started reading. I really couldn’t stop reading it!  To my amazement, one of the articles confirmed exactly what my husband said to me. From that day, I erased negative words from my vocabulary; now I speak faith filled words from the confessions in the devotional to my body, family and work. And amazingly; the exact words that I speak happen to me.”

Rhapsody of Realities indeed captivated my spirit. I’m so engrossed with it. It’s always like the articles by Pastor Chris and Pastor Anita Oyakhilome was written just for me.”
