Your Origin Surpasses Your History, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the word I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations”

The more I walk with the Lord, the more I see my life being changed as I go to new dimensions. As a child growing up, I had some thoughts of what I wanted to be and always dreamed of it. The more I have lived, the more I have come to realize that what I thought was what I needed cannot be compared to what God has done. In other words, I got more than I bargained for.

After You Have Suffered A Little While… Sis. Bala Samson

Posted on Updated on


1Peter 5:10, “And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

God sometimes speaks loudly through His Word, I was excited as I read this scripture which refreshed and revitalized me . We should remember that the trials the devil seeks to use to destroy us, God desires to use, to make us stronger and more equipped to follow Him. Every tree that produces fruit, He prunes so as to make it stronger. (John 15:2) Suffering wasn’t a sign that they were doing something wrong, but Peter reminds us that through the sufferings, God strengthens us spiritually. Satan may try to tear us down through failures, discouragements and humiliation, but God builds you in the midst of all the pain. Want to know more? Stay tuned! Read the rest of this entry »

He Knows Me, Part 2of2, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Psalm 139:1-24, “Search me, O God and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts (anxieties).

From what we shared in part 1, the common denominator word “YOU” which refers to God in everything and in every step of the way, for He knows us inside out, whether we be sleeping, waking up, talking, standing, fallen and so on and so forth, He still knows us. Let’s continue from vs. 15 of Psalm 139.

He Knows Me, Part 1of2, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Psalm 139:1-24, “Search me, O God and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts (anxieties).

The Psalmist in this text had an encounter with God in a way that caused him to know that God has a perfect knowledge of man. He begins by saying in vs. 1, “O Lord, You have searched me and known me”, He knows more than just my name, He knows me inside out. The Psalmist is giving us examples to show how the Lord knows him. “You know my sitting and my rising up; You understand my thought a far off”, God knows when we are weak and when we are strong. He knows when we need more and He knows our thoughts from a far off, both wicked and pleasant thoughts. When you are thinking of what to say, He already knew what you were thinking and what you planned to say.

Seasons Change, God Remains The Same, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


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.

Exodus 14: 13-14, “…And Moses said unto the people, Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today: for the Egyptians (your enemies who are pursuing after you) whom you have seen today, you shall see them again no more forever. The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”.

I want to bring to your attention, today, that life is not easy, and that your life is and will be full of trouble. No matter who you are or where you are, you will encounter moments and experiences that will leave you not knowing what to do. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
