For Tough Times

Seasons Change, God Remains The Same, Evans Olang

Judges 15:18-19, “18 Because he was very thirsty, he cried out to the LORD, “You have given your servant this great victory. Must I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?” 19 Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi, and water came out of it. When Samson drank, his strength returned and he revived.”, (NIV).

The desire to be victorious in every area is a thirst majority craves for. A desire to let everything run smoothly in one’s life yet we find that there are times you are victorious in one area and a failure in other areas. We are like trees that go through different seasons, the winter, spring, summer and autumn. If you took time to look at trees in these different seasons, you will discover that there is change on how they look. During winter time, their leaves are gone. For someone who may not know may conclude the trees are dead but the truth of the matter is, they are alive and well adjusting to the season in which they find themselves in. Their existence is not dependant on the season, their existence is dependant on the roots that have gone deep underground in search of water and nutrients. So the days they may not look attractive, they still have a way of surviving one season while they wait for the next season.

Bounce Back, Evans Olang

Daniel 3:17&18, “17…our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18, But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

Once in a while in life you will experience disappointments. As I’m put this message together, someone has been disappointed in the last few days. If you’ve never been disappointed, I guess you haven’t hit puberty yet. Disappointed in your job, relationship, boss, children, church, friends. Either you will disappoint someone or they will be disappointed by you, that is a fact of life. Disappointment simply means a feeling of dissatisfaction that results when your expectations are not realized. Read the rest of this entry »

Judges 6:11-40&7:1-25, “…The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor”

We looked Gideon’s response to the Angel of the Lord when He appeared to him and said, “The Lord is with you” . It did not make sense to him having suffered for a while. He did not see how the Lord could have possibly been with him, and I agreed with Gideon at one point until I looked deeper and realized the Lord was with him the whole time, otherwise worse things could have happened to him had it not been for God’s hands protecting him. We said, where we are going doubt, fear, un answered questions cannot come with us, they are a hindrances to God’s move. Read the rest of this entry »

We all love the presence of God, His Son, the Holy Ghost and God’s Angels. Any time we feel alone and the thought of no one cares, there is always a way God reaches out to us in ways no one else can. Read the rest of this entry »

I Am Still Here, Evans Olang

Psalm 118:17, “I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD”

A question once asked, “Why are we here on earth?”, someone responded, “to live this life to the fullest“. I wouldn’t say that is the reason why we are here primarily, that is what we do while we are here. God designed the earth, populated it and finally created man to fit into what He had created. God being a God of order did not create man on the first day. The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever, that is the purpose He created us for. No one is here by accident but by the divine will of God. The question then you ask yourself, “if I am here, why I’m I here and how long am I going to be here?”, Until what He had planned for me is fulfilled in my life. Read the rest of this entry »
