TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty. Neither do I concern myself with great matters, nor with things too profound for me.”

(Psalm 131:1, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When things happen in your life that you don’t plan, do you find yourself trying to reason it all out, or looking for a place to file it all in your mind? What happens when you can’t find a “file” to put it in? What if you can’t make sense of it all?

Here’s the answer: Every one of us needs to create a file in our thinking called an “I Don’t Understand It” file. When things come up that don’t make sense or you can’t figure out, instead of getting frustrated or confused, simply put it in your “I Don’t Understand It” file and leave it alone. Especially at this time of year. Don’t start the New Year off with old frustrations. Don’t carry bitterness into your season of new beginnings. Don’t put a question mark where God has placed a period. Trust that He is good. Trust that He is working things out for your good. Keep believing, keep praying, keep hoping for the future. Let go of what didn’t work out in 2014 and get ready for the new season God has for you in 2015!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, today I surrender my questions; I surrender my past; I surrender my need to have all the answers. Today I choose to trust that You have all the answers, and You will reveal all things in time in Jesus’ name.

Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

  1. This message is directed at Edgar Lungu
    ” He don’t Understand It” that he can be a PF president.
    And his campaign is NOT working, so he should just let it go. May God be bless HH & Nawakwi.

      What is coming out of your mouth is worse than what is coming out of your other end.

    • @PF Mansa, what kind of church do you go to where you insult your pastor like me? May the devil torment you and your PF.
      “If you don’t understand me, just leave alone or you will perish”.

      My brother/ sister ( whoever you are), I thought Joel and Victoria’ message was simply ‘create an “I don’t understand file” where you post and save those things that you do not understand. Sorry, but I doubt you are a pastor. God’s grace be upon you.

    • Amen: The word says simply that we do not carry any bitterness. we forgive PF for for all the bad they have done to Zambian people, including all lies. We will go with a clean heart, no bitterness as we Vote in new people to help Transform Zambia.

      Let us all for for HH and forget the bad we did not understand which made PF so poor finishers and evil of division on or communities.

      We forgive you PF but no votes, because we need a fresh new start.

      IN Jesus Name AMEN & AMEN.

    • This song at church went like: …er er eer My God is goodo (good). Everything is double double, is double double …

      UTH recorded:
      22 christmas babies,
      22 road accident victims,
      11 assault cases on christmas day(znbc news).
      We have:
      11 Presidential contenders.
      11 / 11 / 2014 Sata’s burial date.
      01 / 20 / 2015 Polling day.

      I understand this message. Unless someone other than Double H ( HH ) wins, I’ll put this message in the ” I don’t understand it” file and ask God for more understanding.

    • I let go of my girlfriend since it did not work out. I did this 26 times before I got old and settled down with the very first one I let go. Ki ki. Opium of masses and cock and bull story presented as Religion. I will vote for a candidate who openly professes that he does not believe in any religion.

  4. This is the selfsame thing black people have passively done- surrendered their rich cultural past; you have blindly surrendered your need to have all the answers. Today you fooli$hly choose to trust that You have all the answers, and You will reveal all things in time in this ficitious chactI surrender my past; I surrender my need to have all the answers. Today I choose to trust that You have all the answers, and it will reveal all things in time in this fictitious character name called Jesus.
    Religion is like Western medicine. ..it was never meant to heal you…wake up from your blind folly and read more about self not scriptures from a book of lies that encouraged and perpetuated the slaughter and enslavement of your own people; delivered by wealthy pastors who got rich due to your…

      Religion is like Western medicine? Do you go to hospital when you have malaria? I hope your herbs work. Even after going to school for long enough to be able to type on a computer you still think that way! No wonder Zambia is failing to develop.

    • @jay Jay, what makes you think reading the bible is not reading about self? I think you are currently living in a white man’s country and therefore being indoctrinated by their aetheist beliefs. Just because you live near them does not make you one of them. Just continue cleaning their toilets and doing other odd jobs, but do not try to be like them

  6. …’just file it in ‘I don’t understand file’……??….easier said than done…the calendar was designed for human’s convenience….unfortunately or fortunately, real life is a single block of a period of events….there is no border line between 31st December and 1st January….until there is suitable alternative in place, human mind will never let go of the past….
    …the best thing one can do is to comfort and remind themselves that there are other people in a worse situations than what they are experiencing right now and that the best is yet to come their way……this is just a passing phase…..

    • You are satanists. Sabbath day is Saturdays, repent and start praying on Saturdays, Declare Saturdays as weekly holiday. Vote for HH, you morons, for a brighter future for your children, good jobs for you and affordable mealie meal. This is a promise from a man of God, not from men from satanist party of 90 days promises.

  7. The good thing is that the Word of God is primarily for non believers. So it is good to see them target this particular Sunday posting, with negativity.

    The worst thing for a Christian is to preach only to believers. God wants to win over the unbelievers.

    Nostradamus, Jay Jay and all your Demon friends, Harken unto the Lords Words……repent he sinners and find peace, and glory in God.

    We pray for you. Thanks for coming over even in anger.

    • Religions are exclusive, separative and segregative clubs. They are dividers and the cause of major wars. It is my book or no book mentality (Torah/Bible/Quran- tell me which one is the best), It is my Prophet or no one else (Jesus or Mohammed- who was kind and wise, knowledgeable and non-manipulative?), It is my way or the highway (Bush Mentality, either you are with us or you are against us- Is this not the cause of crusades, ISIS idiocracy and Boko Haram backwardness).Atheists are trillion times better than any believer of any religion. Religion is a curse.
