This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship

Last week we explored the historical setting in which the prophet Hosea operated. We looked at the Covenant, its impact on the destiny of the nation of Israel, and perhaps most importantly, the difference with the New Covenant by faith in Christ.

This week I will delve into the underlying theme of the prophet’s message, and the challenges he faced in his effort to win the hearts and minds of his audience back in Covenant with Yahweh. 

In his words: 

“When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. But the more they were called, the more they went away from me. They sacrificed to the Baals and they burned incense to images.

It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize it was I who healed them.
I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them” – Hosea 11:1-4

Spiritual Intelligence: Whats In Your Hands?

What’s in your hands?

And I’m not talking about a mobile devices this morning (chortle!).

When man sinned in the garden of Eden, one of the curses was;

By the sweat of your face
you shall eat bread,
till you return to the ground,
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust,
and to dust you shall return.

With that text in mind, labour becomes integral to the fulfilment of our purpose and destiny here on earth. It affords us the opportunity to contribute to humanity, and it helps provide human interaction which is vital for our spiritual, emotional and physical well-being. Its also a conduit for prosperity.

Before the industrial revolution labour was mostly agro-based. Therefore the hands were the main instrument of labour; it denotes trade, skills, craft, talent and ability. It was used for planting, harvesting, weaving, rearing, shearing, smithing…

In biblical times; Moses had a staff because he was a shepherd, Elisha had a plough because he was a farmer, David a staff because he was a shepherd, and Peter fishing nets – because he was a fisherman.

Most importantly, The Holy Writ bears record that Yahweh will bless the work of our hands. So friends on the second working day of a brand new week, I leave you with a little inspiration from one of King Solomon’s Real Life Observation project on this subject;

Whatever your hands finds to do, do with all your heart.

Spiritual Intelligence: Serendipity


Can be defined as good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries. Its origin could be traced back to the 1754 Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip.

Most of the greatest discoveries and inventions known to humankind are products of unexpected discoveries. It is what I call a Burning Bush experience, coined from Moses’ chance encounter in the wilderness which led to his meeting with Yahweh, and the mandate to deliver his people from slavery in Egypt.

There are lots of other examples of this term in play from the bible, but as I ponder over this word this morning, I hear these words from Wise King Solomon in his effort to grapple with this concept thousand of years ago;

I also observed under the sun that the race doesn’t always go to the swift, nor the battle to the mighty, nor food to the wise, nor wealth to the intelligent, nor favor to the knowledgeable, because accidents can happen to anyone.


Friends I pray for good accidents for you this year; your efforts shall not be in vain, and that you encounter goodness and mercy in all your endeavours, all the days of your life – amen!
