The spiritual controls the physical

How the Spiritual Process Lost its Quality Control? | Isha Sadhguru
Source: https://isha.sadhguru.org

One night Joseph had a dream and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. Listen to his dream he said. We were out in the field tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up and your bundles gathered around and bowed low before mine. His brothers responded, so you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us? And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them. Soon Joseph had another dream and again he told his brothers about it. Listen, I have had another dream, he said. The sun, moon and eleven stars bowed low before me. This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. What kind of dream is that? He asked. Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you? But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant – Genesis 37 : 5 – 11.

God revealed to Joseph what has been divinely established for him. It is a great joy when He reveal His secret about our lives to us. God is not an author of confusion, when He gives you a dream, you will have peace within you it doesn’t matter how the people around you feel about it because God cannot take permission from anyone before He planned our lives. If Joseph knew that his siblings will be so angry to the extent of planning to take his life, he wouldn’t have told them his dream and his brothers did not know that the power to fulfill the dreams was in the hands of God and not on the coat of many colours that Joseph put on. It is of ulmost importance that we should be careful of those we inform about our dreams. If the siblings knew that selling Joseph to the Ishmaelites, they were pushing him to the place where his destiny will be fulfiled, they wouldn’t have sold him.

God choose David to be the future king of Israel even when Saul was still on the throne and He confirmed this by sending Samuel to go to the house of Jesse and anoint David – 1 Samuel 16. David was not qualified in anyway because even when Samuel got to Jesse’s house and saw David’s siblings, he thought that they were the choosen one but God that sees into the heart told Samuel that He don’t choose based on physical appearance but His choice is based on the heart. God is not a partial God and He has destined David to be the future king. God has not choose those that Samuel met home.

Then Samuel asked, are these all the sons you have? There is still the youngest, Jesse replied. But he’s out in the fields watching the sheep and gosts. Send for him at once, Samuel said. We will not sit down to eat until he arrives – 1 Samuel 16:11.

It doesn’t matter what people says about you, it doesn’t matter what your family and friends might be saying about you, it doesn’t matter how people have disqualified you, your destiny is in the hands of God and it is only Him knows what He has destined you to become. Becasue it has already been established, when David met with Jonathan, what happened?

And Jonathan made a solemn pact with David because he loved him as he loved himself. Jonathan sealed the pact by taking off his robe and giving it to David, together with his tunic, sword, bow and belt 1 Samuel 18 : 3-4.

Brethren, nothing happens ordinarily without a spiritual backing. Jonathan did not know that David has been anointed many years back but God that choose David will bring everything towards the direction of David that will make him to fulfil what He has destined for him. Jonathan was supposed to be the next king when king Saul passed away but he has to handover his kingship to David. Whenever a shift of power has happened in the spiritual realm, there will always be something that will happen in the physical that will triger the accomplishment.

In the life of Esau and Jacob, it was not the day that Isaac blessed Jacob that the blessing shifted. It has already been shifted even when they were still in their mother’s womb – Genesis 25 : 23. At birth, Jacob grabbed Esau’s heel which was a sign of what is going to happen. Esau’s exchange of portage with birth right was a sign of bringing things to accomplishment that has been established. Ordinarily, what connection do portage have with birth right? No connection, but because it has been established in the spiritual, Esau has to transfer his authority to his junior brother. Why could Jacob not asked for any other thing but birth right? I have read in many places where people blame Esau for selling his birth right? The power was not on the hunger but rather it was already in the spirit. Why others blaming Rebekah? Everything has to work towards the direction of fulfilling the spiritual purpose.

God’s love for mankind is very great no matter our errors, mistakes or sins, His love is higher. If we can obey God’s instructions, we will live in peace and He will fulfil His plans and purpose for our lives because He is too faithful to fail.

PRAYERS:

  1. Father, You said that the steps of a good man are ordered by You. Therefore Lord, order my steps in the name of Jesus Christ.
  2. O Lord, what You have destined for me and my family, give us the grace to fulfil it in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. O Lord, reveal to me the secret of my life and family so that we will not be going towards the wrong direction in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. Any power, spirit or personality assigned to distract me and my family from the divine plan and purpose of God, receive the judgement of fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
  5. Any power, structure, circumstances that will make me to loose focus, scatter by fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
  6. Any demonic coverage over my destiny, east wind of the Lord, blow them away in the name of Jesus christ.
  7. Any power, spirit or personality using my glory to prosper, die by fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
  8. Spirit of confusing and discouragement assigned against my destiny, I am not your candidate therefore scatter in the name of Jesus Christ.
  9. Any power, spirit or personality making people to make mistakes and commit errors receive angelic slap in the name of Jesus Christ.
  10. Thank You Lord for answering my prayers in the name of Jesus Christ.

Prayer Riot

Monthly Prayer Needs - Life Network
Source: https://www.elifenetwork.com

Good morning brethren and happy new week.
As the first half of 2021 is about to end and we will be entering into the second half of 2021, during this transition period, we are going to be addressing two different gates. One of the gates is midnight of 30th of June to 1st of July 2021 and the second gate is the same night of moving from the first half of 2021 into the second half of 2021.
The bible talked about many different types of gates and every season have its gate also and this gate must be addressed with all seriousness because the bible says in 3 John 1:3 – Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Also in lamentations chapter 3 the bible says, 22 – It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 – They are new every morning great is thy faithfulness.
God’s purpose for us is not to remain in one level in every area of our lives.
As we move towards this gates we will be embarking on fasting and prayer from 29th of June to 2nd of July 2021. It will be nice if you can join us during this period because we will be praying three times a day and during the midnight hour as well. We don’t want to end the second half of 2021 the same way we the first half is going to end no matter how God have blessed you, He is ready to do more. God bless you as you join us in the name of Jesus Christ.

The fasting will be as follows:

Starting: Midnight of 28 June to 29 June – till 3pm

Second day: Midnight of 29 June to 30 June – till 3pm

Third day: Midnight of 30 June to 1 July – 3pm ( night prayers in three sections)

Fourth day: Midnight of 1 July to 2 July – 3pm end of fasting.

Invest on yourself

If you don't invest in yourself no one else will: 3 Reasons investing in  yourself is so important - The Single Wives Club
From: https://thesinglewivesclub.com

Then the king made Daniel a great man and gave him many gifts and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon. Then Daniel requested of the king and he set Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon, but Daniel sat in the gate of the king – Daniel 2:48 – 49.

This new year prepare yourself because God has great things He has prepared for you no matter what is happening in the world.

Daniel and his three friends prepared themselves before their nation went to war and when they were taken as captives, God opened the door of opportunity for them because they had created the base for themselves before their problem came and in the midst of their trials, their personal traits qualified them for the job. You see, in every blessing or position God is taking you to, God has a role to play and we also have our roles to play. If they had not prepared themselves how will they have excelled in the role given to them? You might say yes, God can qualify them even if they’re not qualified. Yes, that is true but know one thing in God’s provision: that God will give you what you are prepared for because His blessing will never be a mockery to His children and He is a God of justice.

The bible says, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth – 2 Timothy 2:15. King James version. That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works – 2 Timothy 3:17. King James version.

What about Joseph? In the prison he was training himself by interpreting other people’s dream. He was in Potiphar’s house as a leader under training but this was unknown to him. When God saw that he had been fully trained and qualified, He opened the door of opportunity to him. The cup bearer did not forget him for no reason. It was because he was not yet qualified because there were things God still wanted him to learn in the prison and he never complained, but rather kept doing what he knew doing and God was taking note of his skills and qualification.

What about David? When he was going through training his dad sent him to his elder siblings and God opened the door of opportunity when he was fully qualified. Was fighting Goliath the reason why his father sent him to his siblings? No. What his father expected was to give things to his brothers and see their well being and come back to his father but God, who was aware of his qualification, had another plan. Can you imagine: a father sent his son on an errand and was expecting him to come back with a response but only for the father to hear that the whole city was singing, that his son, who was not trained as a soldier, was being celebrated as the killer of the enemy’s war champion. The bible says, Goliath had been boasting for 40 days and no one could challenge him. David only heard him once and his spirit could not be at rest for hearing such statement from Goliath because he has been prepared. If he wasn’t prepared, such opportunity wouldn’t have come to him.

Prepare yourself with prayer, fasting, studying, attending seminars, taking up challenges and not running away from them. I have a friend in my school, before the lockdown, one of our lecturers shared us in a group to do group work and I was selected as the group leader and I allocated each portion of the project to each and everyone of us. Few people did what was given to them and about four of us had to do the other people’s portion, including our own and one lady said: ‘Henry, since the rest of them don’t want to work I won’t do their work’ and I told her that she should try to do the maximum that she could and shouldn’t look at others because she is training herself for the future. Finally, she obliged. Since march 2020 when the lockdown started, we have not been able to go back to class and we have been taking our lectures online and submitting our assignments online. Several times that same woman thanked me for the advice I gave her about not looking at what others were doing but focused because it was a training and due to that experience she had, today she is able to do all her assingments on her own. I told her that it was God who I thanked for her life for taking the advise. There was a post I posted here on this blog long ago whose tittle is “God brings people into our lives for a purpose.” In this journey of life our lives cross those who God knows will be beneficial to us, in one way or another. Some might be to challenge you, some might be to encourage you, some might be to train and prepare you even within a short time of that relationship, some might be to advertise or announce you, some might be to carry you along. All we need is to be focused and humble ourselves so that the purpose will be fulfilled and God will be glorified.

Prayers:

  1. Lord, we thank You for bringing us to the begining of 2021 in the name of Jesus Christ.
  2. O Lord, I want to learn and get myself prepared for any opportunity You have destined for me this year. Give me the grace to prepare in the name of Jesus christ.
  3. Father, open my eyes to opportunities others might not see this year in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. Lord, I want to testify of Your great plan and purpose for my life this year to the glory of Your name in the name of Jesus Christ.
  5. Any spirit of discouragement waiting to frustrate me this year, I relocate you to the pit of fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
  6. Lord, right from this month of January, I refuse to be spectators in the name of Jesus Christ.
  7. Open my eyes and mind to know the area I need to prepare myself so that when the opporunity comes, I will not be left out in the name of Jesus Christ.
  8. O Lord, let the potentials You have placed in me be activated and be seen by those You have destined to announce me to kings in the name of Jesus Christ.
  9. Father, connect me to those that will see my value in the name of Jesus Christ.
  10. Thank You Lord for answered prayers in the name of Jesus christ.

2020 Reflection

Grow in Faith with Daily Christian Living Articles
From: https://www.crosswalk.com

Rejoice with them that rejoice and weep with them that weep – Romans 12:15.

This year was a year full of miseries in the world record due to the pandemic that has changed the way things are done today but it could not change God and His power. God is still the same. It has changed the way we think, the way we used to work, the way we used to relate with one another etc. Despite what has happened, God has been faithful because it could have been worse than this if not for His compassion that never fail.

Many have lost their lives ever since the outbreak of the pandemic which the world is still looking for the solution till now. Whoever think and believe that things like this would ever happened? A pandemic that will bring the world to such situation we are today. You might say why did God allow this to happened despite His great love for mankind? My humble answers wil be, how long have we abandoned God and His instructions, what position have we placed God in our lives and society, what value have we placed on His instructions, haven’t we been trying to control what He has created, etc. No matter what we have done, He is a merciful God and if we can go to Him with the heart of repentance, He will be merciful.

Today, our minds are with those that lost their love ones to the pandemic and those that are still passing through the difficulties. The Lord is with you therefore you are not alone because the word of God says, When you pass through the waters, I will be with you and through the river, they shall not overflow you, when you walk through the fire, thou shall not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon you – Isaiah 43:2. According to the opening verse, the word of God instructed us to rejoice with those rejoicing and sorrow with those that are in sorrow. We should allow our minds to be with them no matter the differences that might have existed.

Today is 31st of December 2020, to some of us, how we made it here it is a surprise because you can see clearly that it wasn’t easy. To some it is tears of sorrow and to some tears of joy. The bible says, so then it is not he that willet or runneth but of God that shows mercy – Romans 9:16. It is by His mercy that we are where we are today. Below are some prayers:

  1. Thank You Lord for bringing us far this year undermining what has been happening around us in the name of Jesus.
  2. Father, forgive us in anyway we have sinned against You and have mercy upon us in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. Forgive us O Lord in any way we have despised Your instructions and have been diverted from Your precepts in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. Lord we commit everyone that have lost their love ones whether due to pandemic or other ailments this year into Your hands in the name of Jesus christ.
  5. Lord we commit everyone that is passing through any negative situation due to the pandemic or any other situation into Your hands because what is in Your hands is safe and secured in the name of jesus Christ.
  6. My Father and my God, let Your consoling Spirit rest upon them in the name of Jesus Christ.
  7. The vacum that has been created due to the depature of the lost souls, Lord, fill it with your Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.
  8. Lord, visit anyone on their sick bed and let Your healing power rest upon them in the name of Jesus Christ.
  9. Stripes of Jesus, speak over anyone that is sick either physically or spiritually in the name of Jesus Christ.
  10. O God, let Your power of encouragement rest upon anyone that has been discouraged and restore back hope and courage to them in the name of Jesus christ.
  11. Lord, help us to become a blessing to anyone around us who is in need no matter our situation in the name of Jesus christ.
  12. Thank You lord for answered prayers in the name of Jesus Christ.

The battle of life

  1. Exodus 17:8
    “Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven Exodus 17 : 8 – 14.

Every battle has a physical side and a spiritual side and both has to go hand in hand in order to be victorious. In this journey of life, no matter what we think or feel about ourselves, there will always be one or more battles to fight and nothing can change that. We should always believe that it is only God that can change things.

According to the above scripture, Moses has to go on top of the mountain with Aaron and Hur who were expected to hold his hand. While Joshua has to go and do the physical despite the fact that God has given them victory. Things will not change until we rise up and take action.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF BATTLES WE MIGHT BE FIGHTING

1. Battle of health: The woman with the issue of blood (luke 8:43-48) fought that battle with all she had and there was no victory until all strength and wealth were no more and she now decided to give it to Jesus and there and then the battle came to an end. Also the man at the beautiful gate  – Act 3 : 2 – 11.

2. The battle of poverty and limitations:In 2 Kings 4 : 1 – 38 about the Shunamite woman. She fought the battle of poverty.

3. The battle of barrenness: Sarah Abram’s wife Genesis 11 : 30; Rebekah the wife of Isaac Genesis 25 : 21; Rachel, Jacob’s wife Genesis  30 : 22 – 24; Manoah’s wife, Samson’s mother Judges 13 : 3; another woman was Hannah Samuel’s mother 1 Samuel 1 : 6 ; also Michal Saul’s daughter David’s wife 2 Samuel 6 : 23 and Elizabeth the wife of Zechariah the mother of John the baptist in Luke 1 : 7. All these women fought the battle of barrenness and God rewarded them by giving them each a great children who were prophets and leaders.

4. The battle of death and marriage: Naomi and Ruth fought the battle of marriage and God gave Ruth a second chance Ruth 1 : 1 – 22.

5. The battle of disobedient children: prophet Eli had children that were disobedient and it was in the same house Samuel the great prophet grew up whose none of his words came without result 1 Samuel 2 : 11 – 36

6. Battle of unfruitfulness: Peter worked all night and there was no result Luke 5 : 5 but when Jesus Christ steps in, the situation changed even during the day when it is difficult to fish.

7. Battle of injustice and false acausation from family members and anyone that sees you: Joseph was put in the prison for what he did not do Genesis 39 : 19 – 21.

8. Other battles we might be facing are joblessness, not being appreciated no matter how you try to be good,  delay,  etc

No matter how strong and hard the battle might be, all we have to do is to present it to God and allow Him to settle it in His own way. We should always remember that the spiritual controls the physical. All these battles in the bible were first won in the spiritual and it manifested in the physical.

 

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for always ahead of us in every situation. Give us the grace to rely on You and the grace to fight in the name of Jesus Christ.

Fear Not

For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind – 2 Timothy 1 : 7

The present situation in the world has brought fear to every nook and corner in the world. It doesn’t matter what is happening in the world today, the word of God cannot lie. According to the above opening chapter, God has not given us the spirit of fear, why then should you be afraid of whatever is happening. Can God lie? The bible says in Numbers 23 : 19 that, God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that he should repent. Hath He said and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good? We don’t have to be afraid of anything but rather trust God. Most times, we allow what we see, what we hear and what we feel to reduce the size of God. No situation is greater than God. See how common virus has crippled the world in such a short time. The question I always ask people is that ”Can we fear God as the world is afraid of Coronavirus now”? How many countries has been on lock down? We leave who has the key to the solution and start looking somewhere else where the solution is not sure.

Brethren, the bible says in 2 Chronicle 7 : 14 that, If My people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land. Are we ready to humble ourselves and go on our kneels or we are going to continue to look for solution where there is no solution? If we can humble ourselves, no matter how great the error and mistakes might be, God is merciful and He is ever ready to forgive us.

Prayer: May God give us the grace we need to know the truth because the bible says that we shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free in the name of Jesus Christ.
