Sorry, but i’m Not Conventional

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

by Mark Twain

If you’ve read any of my post you’ll probably realise my train of thought isn’t conventional, I’m wired some what differently but I think that’s very important to keep some balance in universe ..lol, like the quote I wrote about leadership, I don’t want to” become an unbalance weight ” and this isn’t arrogance, my confidence is in God as I’m privilege to be called his son

That’s why I have so much admiration for the bible, the way God inspired men to compile the Gospels, there is four accounts, from a distance some one might question why four?
Well, God is Good because one mans testimony isn’t enough to affirm or confirm the message but all four gospels gives us a more complete view of the “message of Gods love to us” our wonderful saviour.

Do you want to hear something unconventional ?

I study a lot on the subject of leadership, personal development and branding as this is the field I’m getting into as a life coach. Am passionate about how I first of all can become more effective and productive in practical things in my life, my philosophy is governed by biblical understanding, this frame work I’m using is amazing how development take it’s place In context of scripture, Ok am trying to get to the unconventional point, are you ready for this, are you sure?

Ok, what do you understand about the power of intention?
How does it fit into you theology ?

I was coaching someone a few days ago and this was the subject matter, there’s a lot of people who teach on this subject matter but my views are very different, “let’s get to the meat then”

Daniel chapter 10 gives us clear insight to the conflict in the heavens as the transition of power was between the kingdoms of the earth as the angels were resisting the princes of the air on behalf of the Gods young assigned prophet Daniel, the meat of this massage was Daniel’s heart and intention was right in the sight of the lord, which gave access to his prayer even before he prayed!!

Dan 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. The understanding of the message came to him in a vision.

Now hears the meat!!

Dan 10:12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.

The KJV version says “set your heart”
This is the bases of his response, the intention and humility of the heart, if this idea is true then everything we have been doing right now is brought into question?
Is our service to God the action or the intention?
Think about this point of view?
Is forgiveness the intention or the action?

Think about it

Jesus said :

Mat 15:17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
Mat 15:18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’
Mat 15:19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
Mat 15:20 These are what make a man ‘unclean’; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean.'”

What jesus was addressing was the meaningless practices that doesn’t make a man clean or righteous but his message goes straight to the heart or intention of a person

The true essence of spirituality as a believer or follower of christ is about God working within our intention as he works in us to both will and do according to his Good pleasure phil 2:13

Have you every worked with someone feeling very sensitive a round them being mindful of their intention trying not say or do the wrong thing to hinder them or put them off , this shows me we are always working with people intention or in conflict with them but the point I’m bringing out is often we ain’t “conscious enough to realise what’s happening” maybe the same in our relationship with God?

In closing , are you a bible believing person? if so look at this in context of our discussion, I used this one in the sessions I mentioned


Hbr 12:2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross,

Let’s put so context to this

1) what does a author do in the light of our faith?

2) who is responsible for perfect this faith? there is no me or I in this statement

So what are you trying to say then ? well I believe that God governs faith, trust when we believe him, his words
Is our responsibility in terms of feeding & nourishing the soul or spirit to cultivate the right intentions, as the Apostle Paul graciously said: .

Phil 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

So, what is your thoughts on intention?
