Your time of freedom

Mark 10:46
“They came to Jericho. As he went out from Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road.

Mark 10:47
“When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, and say, “Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me!””

Mark 10:48
“Many rebuked him, that he should be quiet, but he cried out much more, “You son of David, have mercy on me!””

Mark 10:49
“Jesus stood still, and said, “Call him.” They called the blind man, saying to him, “Cheer up! Get up. He is calling you!””

Mark 10:50
“He, casting away his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.”

When the blind Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was passing  he said, Jesus son of David, have mercy on me and the people tried to stop him from receiving his miracle but he shouted the more.

Those that tried to stop him were those that called him to Jesus.

During your trying time stay in the fight because you don’t know your time of visitation. No matter what people are saying to you  don’t quit.

Prayer: Father, give us the grace to stay committed to You during our trying period in the name of Jesus Christ . Let those that have written me off be those that will announce my breakthrough in the name of Jesus Christ.

The greatness in you

 

Image result for greatness in you

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me – Philippians 4 : 13

We are used to this verse and we declare it most of the times with our mouth but many times after the declaration, trials come our way and we often forget that this verse works when there are trials and when there are no trials.

We are here on earth in the image of God and His likeness because He created us so. We are created with a very great power which we are yet to know. There is a greatness in the inside of you which is not in any other person. There is a mission which God has written your name and He expect you and you alone with His help to fulfill. The trials are part of the things you need to overcome so that you can get that crown which He has prepared for you.

Anything you do, do it as if there is no tomorrow. Do it as the only opportunity you have to demonstrate that which He has placed in you. No matter how miserable you might feel you are, there is nothing bad with that if you have decided to think of yourself that way but what I want you to remember are:

–  He that is you is greater than those that are outside of you

–  No power is greater than God who created you in His own image and likeness

–  You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus

–  You are an overcomer through Christ Jesus

–  You are very precious in the sight of God.

–  Believe

–  Be patient

–  Be hopeful

–  Trust God’s promises

Therefore, I want to encourage you to stop demoting yourself because you have all that you need just within you to sail through any circumstances that the devil throws your way or any mistake you might have made in life that is why the Bible says in, Micah 7 : 8 ”Rejoice not against me o mine enemy, when I fall, I shall arise, when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me”.

PRAYER :

Father, we thank You for all the power and greatness that You have deposited in us. Lord Jesus, we thank You for what You have done in the cross of calvary through which we have the reconciliation power. Give us the grace Father to stand firm and trust what You have placed in us because it is not to destroy us but to empower us to be an overcomer so that at the end, the glory and honour will be given to You in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Obeying God’s instructions always bring joy and victory.

 

Image result for god's instructions Picture credit: Google.

But He said, More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it – Luke 11 : 28.

Most times God’s instructions are meaningless if you are not in the spirit. Below is a story of a man whose name was Mr Luis. take your time to read this and afterwards advise yourself.

Mr Luis, we are sending home your children from school, they haven’t paid their school fees and we will not allow them to take the exams. Luis began to plead but the principal refused to help. Just as he dropped the phone, another call entered, it was from his landlord, he had been given an ultimatum of one week to pay the house rent or he would be forced out of the apartment. The moment he dropped the phone a text  message entered, a business partner he was owing money was on his way to arrest him.

Brethren, at times in life, trials will keep on coming without stop. Don’t give up because God is still on His throne.

Mr Luis began to cry, ”Jesus, I am in trouble, I need You to show up for me, because the world is caving in on me, I need Your help”. Just then he heard a voice so clear as though the person was standing next to him and the voice said, ”dance”. It sounds crazy but Luis was desperate, he would do anything at that moment.

Luis put in a Frank Edwards CD and he began to dance, so much joy and peace filled his heart. He forgot about all his troubles and just danced before God. Suddenly, he got a text message, it was a bank alert for ten million naira. It was the payment of long time contract he did that the man who gave the contract didn’t want to pay. God touched him and he felt he must pay at that minute.

Luis could not believe it, he put on his clothes and rushed to his bank to check to know that he wasn’t dreaming, it was real. Luis, immediately removed his tithe and made three transfers; one to the school, one to the landlord and the last one to his business partner. Luis began to scream, ”Thank You Jesus” in the bank, they all thought he was crazy but he just couldn’t control himself, Jesus had saved me from shame and disgrace.

Brethren, if you forget anything about God, don’t ever forget that the MIRACULOUS is linked to the RIDICULOUS! God wanted to part the Red Sea, He asked Moses to stretch out his rod and his hand; God wanted to bring down the walls of Jericho which was very thick, God asked the children of Israel to shout; Jesus wanted to turn water to wine, He asked the servants at the marriage feast to fill a bowl with water and serve it.

Beloved the sea doesn’t part because a man stretched out a rod, walls don’t crumble because a group of people shouted, water doesn’t turn to wine because the servants at the bride filled a bowl and serve it!

These miracles happened because of ”INSTRUCTIONS”. What instruction has God given you recently that you have not obeyed? It may sound simple but your next level is tied to that instruction – obey every instruction that God has given to you. He may tell you to sow a seed, forgive someone, spend time reading the bible, spend longer time during prayer, don’t give the testimony yet, whatever it is, do it promptly.

How can you hear God’s voice? A prayer is a communication, an expression of thanks or request between a servant, a son and God  or a diety. After prayer what do you do? That is where most of us missed it. After prayer, take your time to hear from the Holy Spirit. You just placed your petition before The Almighty God and He will want to speak back to you and give you instructions through the Holy Spirit, therefore it is always good after prayer keep some silent moment before you leave your place of prayer so that the next line of action will be made known to you.

PRAYER: Everlasting Father, we thank You for the manifestation of Your power in our lives. Give us the grace to always hear from You because You are a Father that always want to speak to Your children. Reveal to us the secret of our lives in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Lord will fight for you.

Image result for hold your peace

And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer and put fire therein and put incense thereon and offered strange fire before the Lord which He commanded them not. And there went out fire from the Lord and devoured them and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said unto Aaron, this is it that the Lord spake saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace – Leviticus 10 : 1 – 3

Aaron and his children were called by God and that does not make them to be above God’s commandment. No body is perfect except God Himself. During their service to God, a mistake was made and it resulted to their death.

Aaron was their earthly father and he did not throw in the towel and said it is over between him and God but rather the bible says, ”he held his peace”.

Let’s think about the pains of loosing two children on the same day during their service to God? Yes, many people has passed through trials in life at times more difficult than that of Aaron and others not as difficult as that. The question is, that will not be your portion in the name of Jesus Christ. If you are faced with such trials, can you continue to serve and love God?

Many will give up on God and say that, how can he or she be serving God and He will kill his two children? Brethren, all is about God. He is love, He is peace, He is patient. He is the all in all that we have. It doesn’t matter our trials, let us always hold the peace that He has given to us.

Even Aaron and Moses could not enter the promise land because of mistake. Does it mean that God hated them? NO. God loves them. We are all children of the Most High God and His love for us is constant. He that has called us is faithful.

We should try to always obey His commandments. It is hard, yes, but we will find it easier to do if we accept to die to sin, His grace will be surfficient for us to fulfill it.

PRAYER : Awesome and Great God, may Your name be glorified for ever and ever. Please, give the grace to serve You no matter the trials that might come our way so that Your name will be exalted for ever and ever in the name of Jesus Christ.
