Today’s Readings:

Num 13:1-2,25-14:1,26-35

Psalm 106:6-7,13-14,21-23

Matthew 15:21-28


There are two attitudes that will help you achieve a lot today. The first one is an attitude of COURAGE. Learn to always see the good in every situation and the potential every opportunity holds. The second is an attitude of FAITH, which is to know that there is always a door that will open to you if you believe in God and refuse to take "No" for an answer.

Caleb displayed an attitude of courage. Faith was the attitude displayed by the Canaanite woman in the Gospel. It is interesting that in both situations, God threw open an opportunity. In the case of the Israelites, He threw open an opportunity of prosperity in the Promised Land. Caleb told them the potential that the land possessed and that they had all it took to invade and conquer the land. The Israelites were more convinced by the naysayers who told them how terrible the people in the land were and that they were like grasshoppers before them. Since they did not listen to God's report through Caleb, they all perished in the wilderness. It is blasphemous to refuse God's command when He has already assured you of success. Which voice do you listen to, is it the voice that shows you your flaws or the one that shows you your strength?

In the Gospel, the Apostles of Jesus were more concerned about the Canaanite woman's disturbance than the fact that she displayed a deep sense of faith in Christ. Jesus sees her faith. Jesus tested her faith. The woman's faith stood, and Jesus granted her heart's desire - - the healing of her sick daughter. When you face situations, what do you see? Do you only see a brick wall, or do you see a door that will open? When you find yourself in a difficult and trying situation, do you insist on doing what lies in your power and persist in prayer or are you discouraged because you have prayed, and nothing has changed?

I want to assure you, dear child of God, that although things may seem difficult right now, and though it seems your prayer is not making things better (in fact, things are getting worse), I assure you that it is the devil's outcry Persist in prayer and in doing what is right, good and true. Do not give up or give in to despair and disappointment. God is on your case and He will bless you. Seek counselling with your minister of God. Begin to meditate upon the word of God. Be calm, and strive to live in a state of Grace always. Take good advice only and do not give up no matter what.




  1. Praise ye the Lord, Praise the Lord, O my soul.

  2. While I live will I praise the Lord; I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.

  3. May God who knows and sees my tears, wipe them away and restore peace, sanity and prosperity in my life, in Jesus' name.

  4. Lord give us Christian homes, where the children are led to know Christ in His beauty who loves them so.

  5. Lord give us Christian homes where the mother in queenly quest strives to show others Your ways are best

  6. Lord unite the body of Christ in Your love, in Jesus name

  7. Thank you, Lord, for moving our nation forward, in Jesus name. Amen.
