  1. A Pure Heart

    By Henry Korsah Pure – not mixed or adulterated with any other substance or material. Christian’s often ask for a ‘pure heart’ but it seems like we have forgotten why Jesus came to die on the cross. Romans 4:25. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification (NIV) My beef with all of this ‘pure heart’ prayers is that we are set free from our sins. The reason why you keep on falling into the same sin over and over again, you simply will not acknowledge that Jesus has already done it for you; it is time to stop dwelling on the past and look towards the cross. The bible says in John 8:36. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (NIV). Especially, if you are a born - again Christian who has been baptised. Jesus, came on this Earth and received the holy Spirit of God through baptism. Matthew 3:16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. After this you will not find Jesus praying for a pure heart in the bible, if we are all trying to be like Jesus we need the Spirit of God. Let us now go into King David’s prayer and, see why his situation is different from our current situation. David had committed adultery with Bathsheba. Psalm 51:10. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (NIV) Psalm 51: 11. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy spirit from me. (NIV) Back in King David’s time or like your history teacher said BC (Before Christ). Everyone was living under the law. It was essential for King David to say this prayer so that he can remain in God’s presence and still have the Holy Spirit inside of him. In those days, the moment you sinned it was instant death, no way on Earth, you will enter heaven; even for stealing 5p lollipops at the age of three years old. The unfortunate thing is that everyone breaks the law so it was impossible for anyone to get into heaven. Romans 6:14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. (NIV) Now we are living under grace so even if you sin, you have already been forgiven. Now this is not an excuse to go out to commit any sin under the sun. The Lord does not want you to do that, he wants you to avoid sin at all cost. Hence why we should worship him in fullness and in truth. Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law, but under grace. (NIV) Further Reading: Romans 6 Prayer: Heavenly father, help me to not fall blind to your grace. I thank you for the spirit that you have given me. I thank you for what you did on the cross. I pray that I may no longer dwell on the past but that I may always look towards the cross because of your righteousness. In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen Please support us by visiting our Blog page: https://pathofwarriors.wordpress.com/
  2. By Victor Remes "I'm no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God" - Bethel Music one of my all time favorite songs. The main reason this is my go to song is because it shouts out a declaration; telling myself that "I'm no longer a slave to fear as I am God's child" it gives me strength to overcome challenges that I may find afraid (Trust me it works!). As human beings we all eventually fall under slavery with a common emotion that is called 'Fear'; some of you reading this right now are probably battling and being pressured by fear or going through a season of fear. This can be caused by a feeling of anxiety, a threat of danger or pain or even concerning something that might or might not happen; this all can stop us from reaching our full potential and also distract us from what more important, this shouldn't be the case. First of all fear is not of God but of the enemy (the devil). God's will for you is that you no longer fear but trust in Him to protect you; therefore you must resist the devil and he'll flee from you. James 4:7 - "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Psalm 56:3 - "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you." 1 Peter 5:7 - "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." Galatians 4:7 - "So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir." In the book of Matthew Jesus himself went through a moment that showed some sort of 'Fear' on the night just before his arrest to be crucified; but instead of allowing it to grow and take over his mind, He took it to the Father in prayer. Shall we have a look. Matthew 26:39- 45 39-He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” 40-Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41-Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 - Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” 43-And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. 44-So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45-Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. Reading this passage I want you to notice what Jesus was saying in his prayer verse 39 - “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." when Jesus said "let this cup pass from Me" He was asking for alternative route even though Jesus himself knew that He had to go through this route even before He was born. After He finished His prayer He went back to the disciples and found them sleeping showing His frustrations, He basically had a go at them. “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation.The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (verse 40 - 41). Going on, Jesus went back a second time to pray the same prayer to the Father; then once He finished Jesus made His way back to the disciple to find them again fast to sleep but He didn't wake them up this time, instead He made a straight U - turn and went the third time and prayed again saying the same words as He did previously (verse 42-44). Once Jesus had finished praying for the third time, He went and woke the disciples up saying “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners" (verse 45). After the third time Jesus's attitude to the whole situation changed, He had a moment of fear but after praying three times, He was ready to face what was coming. Taking this example from our very own Saviour, whatever fears or anxiety that may be facing just simply pray about it. Pray in faith for the confidence, strength, boldness, direction, peace etc. but don't pray once and then say afterward praying didn't work; if it didn't its because you didn't pray in faith. Like Jesus go and pray as many times until your attitude to the whole situation has changed and that your mind has been filled with peace. Matthew 21:22 - If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. I remember a time that I had been given the opportunity to lead worship for the very first time in church, I agreed and weeks before that Sunday to come up, I had so many negative thoughts going through my head where it came to a point that I nearly chickened out from doing it; but i'm glad I didn't. What I done differently is that I took all of my fears, negative thoughts, anxieties to prayer and just trusted God's will but it wasn't just one prayer. Every time I had these sort of thoughts, that is the amount of times I took it to prayer (For me, these were a lot of times); truth be told every time I prayed I still had the thoughts but I also had reassurance as well as confident. So when it came to that Sunday I prayed and prayed until I got to the altar and to tell you the truth I really felt God presence in the atmosphere as soon as I started to praise and worship, I forgot everything that was happening in my life all my fears, pain and more, just completely disappeared; I just enjoyed the opportunity to lead the people into His presences and therefore I would do it again. Romans 8:14-17 14-For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15-The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16-The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17- Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. My fellow Warriors, God loves you; He loves you so much that if you put all your trust in Him, He will give you are heart full of boldness and courage. Notice verse 15 it says the Spirit that you received from God does not make you a slave to fear, but the Spirit that you received brought your adoption as a child of God!; as soon as you pray saying "Abba Father". Don't allow these setbacks to enslave your minds and cloud your judgments; as they will affect your attitude and as much as I don't like saying this, it would means that the enemy has won and placed your thoughts at the lowest level. In (Philippians 4:8-9) Paul tells us to take them to the highest level; we choose the thoughts to occupy our minds, and would only need to exercise it. When fear comes to mind, replace it with thoughts of protection and blessings from bible verse and your own experiences, proving not only to yourself but everyone around you that fear is unfounded. Since the Almighty God has protected you in the past and will therefore protect you in the future. I encourage you to pray in faith, trusting God when fear and anxieties start to arise and keep on praying as many times until you feel at ease or until it's completely gone and take control of your thoughts by choosing positive one and if you do this I assure you that you have overcome the schemes of the "devil that defeated fool!". Prayer: Abba Father thank you for your hand that is over my life, I ask that you will continue to bless me with the heart full of Courage, a body full of Strength, a mind full of Protection, and a life full of Love. I pray that you keep my mind alert and protected from negative and fearful thoughts that the enemy is trying to implement; and if it is so occupy my mind with your voice of reassurance and encouragements. For I declare that I am no longer a slave to fear but I am child of God. In Jesus Name Amen. Below is the song that I mentioned at the start:
  3. By Henry Korsah ‘Jesus, loves the little children, all the children of the world….’ This song is a Sunday school classic. Let us go into why this song has been created in the book of Matthew. Matthew 18:2-5 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. (NIV) And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (NIV) Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (NIV) And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” (NIV) This will make you wonder why will Jesus want us to be like children; very simple, children have a unique gift of open minds. Let me give you an example, a child can approach you and feed you imaginary food. The child knows that there is no physical food present. However, the child still believes that they have made you food. God wants us to have that same belief system as a child. A child will never doubt their wildest imaginations and thoughts. Although, the adult may say things to disapprove the child thoughts and imaginations. Adults tend to doubt the thoughts in their own mind. Henceforth, the lack of faith and trust in God. A child who got disapproved by adults was David. The book of 1st Samuel 1 Samuel 17:28 When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, “Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.” (NIV) “Now what have I done?” said David. “Can’t I even speak?” (NIV) 1 Samuel 17:33 Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.” (NIV) Even though, Eliab and Saul was doubting David. David, slayed the giant Goliath. David had to trust God to defeat the philistines and Goliath. The Israelites did not trust God to defeat Goliath. That is why God used David. (Read Giant in front of you is never bigger than the God inside of you by Victor Remes). It is very important to teach our children the word of God. I would even say from the moment the wife is pregnant with your child or if you are pregnant with the child. The daily devotion that the couple spend together, the father of the child should read about one person in the bible. I am certain whilst the baby is developing in the womb. It will also be developing the spiritual characteristics of the person you have chosen. The spiritual investment should start from the womb until your children have children. Proverbs 22: 6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (NIV) It is also important to discipline your child. We live in a cold, cold world. Discipline is needed for survival in this world. Proverbs 23:13 Do not withhold from a child; if you punish them with the rod, they will not die. (NIV) Punish them with the rod and save them from death. (NIV) I would like to also touch on investing in the children we know. I do not mean money investments but if you want to invest money nothing is stopping you. Share your wisdom with them as much as you can. If you know me, you may have heard me play the drums. I can invest into a child the knowledge I have on the drums, if I see the child has the desire to play the drums. Any talent/gift you possess and you see a child have a desire for that talent/ gift invest into that child. I want you to pray for all the children you know after reading this.
  4. Handling Our Anger (don't Be Blinded By Rage)

    By Victor Remes What is Anger? Anger is an emotion that can seriously affect (or impact) our life at home, our friendships, and even our walk with God. But Biblically speaking, with the right attitude anger itself isn't actually wrong when it is aimed at sin (even God gets angry at sin - Joshua 7:1). When anger is rooted in for a desire of retaliation or getting even (in other words revenge); It is totally wrong as its selfish and it comes from the inward parts of frustration and being blinded by rage which will lead to more trouble (Proverbs 29:22 - “An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.”). This is what the Bible says about the seriousness of anger: * James 1:19-20 - (Our anger doesn't produce the righteousness or anything good of God). * James 3:6-8 - ( Harsh words destroy; it is the root of many problems). This is how the Bible instructs us to handle our anger: * Ephesians 4:26 MSG - Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry. Don’t go to bed angry. - ( Do not sin, Resolve your anger issues quickly; By praying to God directly and also talk to a friend or someone you trust about your feelings). * Ephesian 4:31-32 - (Replace your feelings of anger with a forgiving heart). Next is what the Bible says about guarding/or protecting yourselves from anger: * Proverbs 22:24-25 - (Avoid those that have anger issues; otherwise you will learn and pickup on it and get trapped by it). * Proverbs 19:11 MSG - Smart people know how to hold their tongue; their grandeur (its french for Greatness) to forgive and forget. - (It is wise to ignore offenses that have been done against you). Conclusion: There will be moments of frustration in our lives, and there will definitely be times where people may offend or do wrong against us; but the key is how we handle such situations. Inappropriate (or offensive) words and actions to fight back doesn't please the Lord and it doesn't show our trust in God's sovereign hand over our situations. Being blinded by our anger/or rage will only bring us regrets and damaged relationships (trust me I know); but we must have an attitude of patience and forgiveness, which however will show how we understand God's patience and forgiveness towards me and you! Father I thank you for forgiving me. I thank you for blessing me with a patient and forgiving heart and I ask that you continue to help me control my anger and not be blinded by rage but be covered by your love and live according to your word and also trusting in you as I pray.

  5. Hearing The Voice Of God

    By Henry Korsah To be separated from all the other people in this world. It is required for you to be able to hear the voice of God. Here are a few examples in the book of Exodus: Exodus 15: 26 ‘He said, if you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians: for I am the LORD who heals you.’ (NIV) The requirement in Exodus 15:26 is to ‘listen carefully to the Lord your God,’ this command alone allows God to take care of our physical bodies; providing us with healing when we are sick. As a young teen I was very sick, and to be honest with you my healing did come from listening to his voice. Despite all the prayers from my family, friends and church members. I had to listen to his voice to receive my healing. Exodus 19:3-6 ‘3. Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain and said, “This is what you are to say to the descendants of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel; ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.” (NIV) If you take notice of verse 5 the requirement is obeying God’s voice, we will be special treasure unto the Lord compared to everyone else. This is what I was highlighting earlier being separated from the people of this earth. Verse 6 also goes on to tell us what we will become if we obey his voice. Deuteronomy 28:1-2 ‘1. If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you on high above all the nations of earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:’ (NIV) Here it is saying if you listen to the voice of the Lord, every blessing available will fall upon you. The Lord has blessed me in so many ways I cannot even count. As I said before I was a sick teen however when I received my healing. The Lord blessed me and my family with a free trip to America, 5 star apartment, free tickets to universal and free tickets to Orlando Disney. I cannot make this up at all. Deuteronomy 28:15 ‘However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you:’ (NIV) If you choose to ignore the voice of God, every curse available will fall upon. I think we will all prefer to listen to the voice of God. Prayer: I thank you Abba Father for your word, I thank you for giving me hearing heart. I pray your voice will continue to ring loudly in my ears. So that I may be separated from the world, and a treasured possession unto you oh Lord God. I thank you for setting me high above all nations, may curses never fall on me or family lives. I thank you for your Grace. In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen If you have enjoyed reading this, please support us by visiting our blog and sharing it. Path Of Warriors
  6. By Victor Remes We all have a common enemy a Giant that we may have to face at some points in our lives; they could be a series of Doubts, Depression, Fears, Regrets, Pain, Heartbreaks, Financial distress, Struggles, people telling you that you can’t do it, Family issues at home; sometimes all in one big giant, Yeah not exactly the BFG (Big Friendly Giant). These all are some sort of Giants that are purposed to stop us from reaching our Blessings, our full Potential and eat our Joy. But what can we do about this? How can we overcome this common enemy? In the Bible there is a story about a “Young Shepard Boy” the youngest of eight brothers who has been anointed to be the Future King of Israel. This Shepard Boy whose name was David faced a Giant called Goliath that everyone in the Israel army couldn’t have the courage to face because Goliath was the Philistine’s champion and yes of course he was huge, Bear in mind that Davidwasn’t a part of the army at all he was there only to deliver some supplies as an errand boy (1 Samuel 17:17-18). Here’s where it got interesting; David was witnessing this giant for the first time so like all youngster he kept asking so many questions (1 Samuel 17:23-27). David’seldest brother Eliab who was a part of the Israel army; he became angry and frustrated and took it out on David to which he responded “What have I done now?” (1 Samuel 17:28-30). All this commotion was then repeated to the current King of Israel Saul, who asked for David to meet with him. Upon meeting with Saul, David said to him “Let no man’s heart fail because of him (Goliath the giant). Your servant (David himself) will go and fight with this Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:32). Yes, King Saul denied it at first but David was insisting. David mentioned to the King that he was a Shepard Boy and when a Lion or a Bear came and took a lamb from the flock he went after them and fought with it and killed it and returned the lamb back to the flock. He said I will do the same against this Giant who has mocked and made the army of Israel afraid (1 Samuel 17:33-37). David did also say to the King “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from this Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:37). So King Saul was persuaded therefore allowing David to fight the giant. But the King was insisting that he doesn’t go into the battle empty handed so he clothed him with his Armor and strap his sword around him. But David who felt uncomfortable wearing the Armor because he wasn’t used to it took them off as well as the sword. But went before the Giant with a staff in his hand, five smooth stones that were in his pouch and a sling. Goliath who came with a full Armor a shield and a sword as well as a javelin took a glance and began to mock him because David was only young teen (1 Samuel 17:38-44). But David responded “You come to me with a sword and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all this assembly may know that Lord saves not with swords or spears. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand” (1 Samuel 17:45-47). Yeah I know a very long battle cry but what happened next was astonishing. As David and Goliath met at the battle line. David took a stone from his pouch and placed it in his sling and slung it, struck Goliath on his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. David then took Goliath’s sword, killed him, and cut his head off (1 Samuel 17:48-51). Because of David's victory over the Giant, the Israel army prevailed the Philistines and won that battle, we can establish that the giants we come across are big but they are not “Bigger” than God that is inside of you. Like David we should have the courage and boldness and believe that God is for us and whatever giant we are facing in life will not prevail as long we know that the God we believe in is "Bigger" than an army of Giants. Come on were talking about God who created the whole universe; and because He loves us more than anything. He wants to see us prevail in life, conquer any challenges, overcome any obstacles. But like David we must walk up to our enemies (Giants) letting them know who in charge of the battle and declare that you have already won in Jesus Name. I encourage those that may be confronted by a giant that you let them know who's boss that you will not stand down but take position and tell them or it that you have already WON in Jesus Name!!

David’seldest brother Eliab who was a part of the Israel army; he became angry and frustrated and took it out on David to which he responded “What have I done now?” (1 Samuel 17:28-30). All this commotion was then repeated to the current King of Israel Saul, who asked for David to meet with him. Upon meeting with Saul, David said to him “Let no man’s heart fail because of him (Goliath the giant). Your servant (David himself) will go and fight with this Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:32). Yes, King Saul denied it at first but David was insisting. David mentioned to the King that he was a Shepard Boy and when a Lion or a Bear came and took a lamb from the flock he went after them and fought with it and killed it and returned the lamb back to the flock. He said I will do the same against this Giant who has mocked and made the army of Israel afraid (1 Samuel 17:33-37). David did also say to the King “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from this Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:37). So King Saul was persuaded therefore allowing David to fight the giant. But the King was insisting that he doesn’t go into the battle empty handed so he clothed him with his Armor and strap his sword around him. But David who felt uncomfortable wearing the Armor because he wasn’t used to it took them off as well as the sword. But went before the Giant with a staff in his hand, five smooth stones that were in his pouch and a sling. Goliath who came with a full Armor a shield and a sword as well as a javelin took a glance and began to mock him because David was only young teen (1 Samuel 17:38-44). But David responded “You come to me with a sword and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all this assembly may know that Lord saves not with swords or spears. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand” (1 Samuel 17:45-47). Yeah I know a very long battle cry but what happened next was astonishing. As David and Goliath met at the battle line. David took a stone from his pouch and placed it in his sling and slung it, struck Goliath on his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. David then took Goliath’s sword, killed him, and cut his head off (1 Samuel 17:48-51). Because of David's victory over the Giant, the Israel army prevailed the Philistines and won that battle, we can establish that the giants we come across are big but they are not “Bigger” than God that is inside of you. Like David we should have the courage and boldness and believe that God is for us and whatever giant we are facing in life will not prevail as long we know that the God we believe in is "Bigger" than an army of Giants. Come on were talking about God who created the whole universe; and because He loves us more than anything. He wants to see us prevail in life, conquer any challenges, overcome any obstacles. But like David we must walk up to our enemies (Giants) letting them know who in charge of the battle and declare that you have already won in Jesus Name. I encourage those that may be confronted by a giant that you let them know who's boss that you will not stand down but take position and tell them or it that you have already WON in Jesus Name!!
