The kingdom of God is principle based. The blessings of God are kept a secret from everybody. They are concealed and it takes people with insight to find them out.
“For unto you it is given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God” Luke 8:10
“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, the honour of men to search it out” Proverbs 25:2
Greatness, as one of the blessings of God, is unlocked by divine principles. These principles are like keys that open doors. When you are without a key, success becomes a thing of struggle.

What Did Jesus REALLY Write in the Sand? – John 8:6
The Pharisees had just brought an adulteress before Jesus and demanded, “So Jesus… what do you say?”
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
The Bible doesn’t tell us what Jesus wrote in the sand that day.
It is so easy to live a life clouded with negative thoughts. There is in fact a lot of negativity in the world around us. Despite this, you are able to decide whether you want to tune into these negative vibes or not! Living a life full of praise can assist you as a stepping stone to a lifestyle of worship. Praise is not influenced by how you feel but rather is an act of your will and goes hand in hand with thanksgiving. Thanksgiving and praise is initiated by each person and is the driving force of Worship.
Therefore, what this means is that you are aware of your blessings, naming them one by one, your attitude is one of thankfulness; even at times when you don’t necessarily feel thankful you are able to live with an attitude of thankfulness and praise and are lead into a meaningful and deep fellowship of communication with God.
THIS IS THE YEAR OF A NEW THING
BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE
1. He said many considered to be absolutely barren will be fruitful.
2. He said family histories will be rewritten, including an end to premature death.
3. He said desperate prayers will get quick reply this year.
I like boxing; even more, I love mixed martial arts. As a matter of fact, sometimes when I get to choose between listening to some preachers on T.V and watching the Ultimate Fighter Championship, I go for the later. That’s because I love to observe fighters and relate every fight to every believer’s spiritual warfare. Don’t blame me, Paul the Apostle was also a huge sports fan. His favorite sport was athletics. In fact, I believe it was after watching one of those sprint races that the Holy Spirit inspired him to write in 1 Corinthians 9:24-26. “Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win…” (continue reading)
Following in the same spirit, I like to share with you some important lessons I have learned by divine inspiration, about spiritual warfare, taking a cue from a typical boxing or kickboxing fight. I pray God ministers to you through this piece.
“For whosoever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith..” (1 John 5:4) … no boxer is guaranteed this one, but you and I are. For them it’s a game of strength, skills, and speed. But for you and me, it’s a game of grace! For them it’s a matter of knocking out the opponent before a decision is announced, but for us, we’ve won even before we fight! For them, their title belts may be taken away, but ours is forever! For them, it’s a corruptible crown, but for us, it’s for an incorruptible crown.
God bless you. Remain rapturable
