For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; And the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace… (Isaiah 9:6 AMP).

Beloved, whose government are you under? Our feature text informs us that under Jesus’ government, you have peace. You are counselled by a Wonderful Counsellor. He’s the kind of counsellor that would find you sleeping under the broom tree, wake you up, feed you (1 Kings 19:5-8) and when He feels you are ready to talk, He would ask you… “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:9 NLT). He’s the kind of counsellor that would address that spirit of heaviness and make you ask yourself… why are you in despair, O my soul? (Psalm 42:5). Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad?…

Beloved, could you be under a different government? Why have you allowed fear rule over you and snatch your peace? Jesus’ government is what we were promised. The Message translation of our feature text says… He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness He brings…

Under His government, like Peter, you should be able to sleep peacefully through a storm. We are told that… The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate (Acts 12:6 NLT). That’s because He observed His Governor do the same thing. Once they experienced a fierce storm but… Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke Him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t You care that we’re going to drown?” When Jesus woke up, He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mark 4:38-40 NLT)

Beloved, it’s time to… set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:2 NKJV). That’s where Jesus rules from and it is… with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3). So, think joyful thoughts… whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you (Philippians 4:8-9 AMP).

15. September 2017 · Comments Off on START SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR SITUATION · Categories: Action, God's Plan, Hope, Jesus Christ, Power and Authority, Restoration, Trusting God, Words

Then He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?” “O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.” Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! (Ezekiel 37:3-5 NLT).

Beloved, have you got an ‘ONLY GOD KNOWS’ situation‏? By this I mean, from the way things are going, you don’t have the confidence to say this is how this thing is going to turn out because in your eyes, it is more or less a dead situation. Such was the case with Ezekiel in our feature text but the Lord showed him that he could speak the word of the Lord over the situation to make it live again.

In the same way, you shouldn’t just sit there and watch things die. You should respond by prophesying life into that situation. If you know the mind of Christ then you know what He desires. Jesus said… The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life (John 10:10 NLT). His word also says… Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually] (3 John 2 AMPC). So, instead of sitting there wondering whether you would ever get well… whether you are ever going to succeed, why not prophecy and say “I’m going to get well… I’m going to succeed”. Locate what the word of God says and don’t stop speaking it.

Ezekiel said… So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone (Ezekiel 37:7 EXB).

Beloved, Ezekiel said “So ‘I’”, not the Lord, ‘I’ prophesied and something happened and while it may be a progressive thing where you don’t see all the results at once, just keep prophesying… Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’” So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army (Ezekiel 37:9-10 NLT).

This is what the Sovereign Lord says… So I spoke … and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet…

Beloved,… Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words (Proverbs 18:21 AMP). Why not start speaking life into your situation?

THEN GOD SAID, “LET THERE BE light,” and there was light (Genesis 1:3 NLT).

Beloved, these were the words God said as He created the world and when it was time… Then God said, “Let Us make human beings in Our image, to be like Us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them (Genesis 1:27 NLT).

So, if God created you in His image, then you also have the ability to speak and name things and we see this power demonstrated when Adam named every living creature… and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name (Genesis 2:19 AMPC).

Beloved, this is just a reminder that the words that we speak have power. We ought to know that we shouldn’t be confessing negative things about ourselves, our spouses, our children and our situation because the words we speak have power and it’s time we start realising the power of the tongue when used either positively or negatively because like the Bible says… Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it SHALL EAT THE FRUIT OF IT [FOR DEATH OR LIFE]. (Proverbs 18:21 AMPC)

SHALL EAT THE FRUIT OF IT [FOR DEATH OR LIFE]…

This is scary if you stop to think of some of the things you say like, I’m living from hand to mouth… This headache is killing me… I don’t think I can survive this situation… What am I doing alive?… and all the other negative things we say when we are down without realising the power behind them.

Beloved, the Bible says… the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. IT CAN SET YOUR WHOLE LIFE ON FIRE, FOR IT IS SET ON FIRE BY HELL ITSELF (James 3:6 NLT).

When you open your mouth and all those negative things starts flowing out of it, know that hell is at work and the last thing you want to do is agree with the enemy concerning any aspect of your life because his only agenda is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). So, why not make it a point of duty to think of the things you say before you say them and if you can’t think of anything good to say, just say “Jesus is Lord” or “thank you Lord for wisdom to restrain my tongue”.

28. August 2017 · Comments Off on NO SHORTCUTS · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Patience, Power and Authority

He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. THEREFORE, GOD ELEVATED HIM TO THE PLACE OF HIGHEST HONOR and gave Him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:8-11 NLT).

Beloved, have you ever found yourself taking a shortcut when driving just so you could reach your destination early only to find out that the shortcut wasn’t so short after all? Most times when stuck in traffic, I used to admire drivers that turn around to take an alternative route, but after getting lost so many times or ending up in an even greater traffic, I learnt from experience to just stick to my original route.

Satan wants us to take shortcuts that lead to destruction. He tried it with Jesus. He… led Him up to a high place and showed Him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to Him, “I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THEIR AUTHORITY AND SPLENDOR; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If You worship me, it will all be yours.” (Luke 4:5-7 NIV)

Apart from wanting Jesus to worship him, this temptation was for Jesus to excuse Himself from the God chosen path that lies ahead of Him. Jesus’ mission was to take back the keys of the kingdom from satan but He was to do it via the cross. Here, Jesus was offered a shortcut to leave His cross behind for quick access to power but Jesus chose to receive from His Father what is His Fathers to give.

Beloved, satan has not stopped his tricks. He only packages them in different wrappings and offers them to us but this is only an attempt to get us off the track the Lord has chosen for us. However, choosing to go satan’s way is not the way to gain anything but to lose it. He gives with one hand and takes with ten.

There are so many things that the Lord has promised you but perhaps you are getting very impatient. You want to take shortcuts. Satan told Jesus that I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THEIR AUTHORITY AND SPLENDOUR. However, what authority? Jesus had that authority and our feature text tells us how He got it.

Beloved, there’s always the tendency to want to take the easy path to growth and success without putting in the hard work. We don’t always like to sweat but sometimes opting for shortcuts means selling our soul to satan. The Lord desires to give you your heart desires but to submit to satan’s way of getting what you desire is to lose something greater. So, please WATCH OUT FOR SHORTCUTS THAT ARE NOT REALLY SHORTCUTS.

…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits (Daniel 11:32 KJV).

Beloved, do you know that it is how well you really know God that would determine how you respond to situations? We hear that in obedience, Abraham brought his son for sacrifice to the Lord but there was some reasoning behind his obedience. We are told that… It was by faith that Abraham offered Isaac as a sacrifice when God was testing him. Abraham, who had received God’s promises, was ready to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, even though God had told him, “Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted.” Abraham REASONED that if Isaac died, GOD WAS ABLE TO BRING HIM BACK TO LIFE AGAIN. And in a sense, Abraham did receive his son back from the dead (Hebrews 11:17-20 NLT).

Abraham reasoned that ‘MY GOD IS ABLE’. The same was the case with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They dared King Nebuchadnezzar and again there was the same reasoning behind it which was that ‘OUR GOD IS ABLE’… Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, THE GOD WHOM WE SERVE IS ABLE TO SAVE US. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty (Daniel 3:16-17 NLT).

Beloved, we also see this in the case of Daniel when he was thrown into the lion’s den for refusing to stop praying to his God but then the king could not sleep… Very early the next morning, the king got up and hurried out to the lions’ den. When he got there, he called out in anguish, “Daniel, servant of the living God! Was your God, whom you serve so faithfully, ABLE TO RESCUE YOU FROM THE LIONS?” Daniel answered, “Long live the king! My God sent his angel to shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, for I have been found innocent in his sight. And I have not wronged you, Your Majesty.” (Daniel 6:19-22 NLT)

These people were able to convince the king that our God is able. Elijah showed off the mighty power of His God and converted people to God. He said… O Lord, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.” Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench! And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “THE LORD—HE IS GOD! YES, THE LORD IS GOD!” (1 Kings 18:33-39 NLT)

Beloved, God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. The people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits but the question is… HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR GOD?

The world is waiting for us (Romans 8:19). It’s time to give room for God to start doing the supernatural in our lives.

19. June 2017 · Comments Off on YOUR MONEY CAN’T BUY THIS · Categories: Motives, Power and Authority, Repentance

Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw that the Spirit was given when the apostles laid their hands on people, he offered them money to buy this power. “Let me have this power, too,” he exclaimed, “so that when I lay my hands on people, they will receive the Holy Spirit!” But Peter replied, “May your money be destroyed with you for thinking God’s gift can be bought! You can have no part in this, for your heart is not right with God (Acts 8:17‭-‬21 NLT).

Beloved, I was reading this recently and the first thought that came to mind was “your money can’t buy this”. Unfortunately, you find that there are certain people that feel that their money is their power or that their money would get them power. These are people that feel that their money is the only means to get power and control people and things around them and once you’ve done it for a long time, you think you can get away with it… “Let me have this power, too,” he exclaimed.

Such was the case of Simon in our feature text and let me just break this down for you on a level that you may be able to understand or relate with. Your tithe, special offering or gifts shouldn’t be used to get you the power and influence you so desperately want. You cannot use it to gain the power you so crave for.

Beloved, how did Peter respond to Simon? He basically told him where to go. He said… you can have no part in this, for your heart is not right with God… Repent of your wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps He will forgive your evil thoughts, for I can see that you are full of bitter jealousy and are held captive by sin.” (Acts 8:22‭-‬23 NLT)

How I wish there would be more ‘Peters’ to say to people that your money can’t buy this. We would be able to shut this attitude down in the body of Christ.

Beloved, one of my favourite Scriptures is… Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life (Psalms 139:23‭-‬24 NLT). I have found that once you start praying this prayer, you would be surprised at the things the Lord would dig up but that’s okay because it doesn’t stop there. Like David, you can also ask the Lord to… Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me (Psalms 51:10 KJV).

Remember, YOUR MONEY CAN’T BUY THIS OR THAT! God’s gift cannot be bought! Submit yourself to the process… Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time (1 Peter 5:6 NKJV)

SELAH!

03. June 2017 · Comments Off on ARE YOU DESPERATE ENOUGH? · Categories: Action, Deliverance, Fear, Freedom, Jesus Christ, Perseverance, Power and Authority, Prayer, Restoration

Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped. And the man of God was angry with him, and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.” (II Kings 13:18‭-‬19 NKJV)

Beloved, I am currently reading a book by Apostle John Eckhardt on Fasting for Breakthrough and Deliverance where he refers to our feature text. He says “Elisha told Joash that he must strike against Syria over and over again until they had been destroyed. Then Elisha told him to take a bow and arrows and strike it on the ground. He didn’t tell him how many times. Joash hit it on the ground three times and stopped. The prophet was very angry because it meant Joash would only defeat the Syrians three times. Three times was not enough to destroy the Syrians as Elisha had prophesied. Perhaps Elisha could have told him how many times to strike the arrows on the ground. But sometimes what is in a person comes out in their actions. Joash didn’t have enough hatred and anger for the enemy to strike the ground beyond the third time-or until the arrow broke!”

Beloved, this left me thinking? How much do you hate the devil? How much do you want to see yourself delivered in whatever area?

I started thinking of the time Jesus’ disciples could not cast out a demon from a little boy and Jesus had to come to their rescue. Later… His disciples asked Him privately, why could not we drive it out? And He replied to them, THIS KIND cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting (Mark 9:28-29 AMPC).

So, if Jesus says…. this kind can only go away through prayer and fasting, do you love your food more than you love your freedom?

Apostle John Eckhardt went on to say “when you are dealing with the enemy, you need to give him more than just a courtesy tap. You need to really want to win. You have to hate what you are fighting so much that you beat it until the arrows break. You must hate lust, poverty, fear, rejection, or whatever it is until you smash it. It’s not just one, two, three, and then look at the prophet and ask, “Did I do good?” Strike it until it is destroyed”.

Hmmm… it’s not just fasting till 12 noon and then say, “did I do good?” It’s not just praying for 30 minutes to one hour and then say, “did I do good?” No, you are to keep praying and fasting or doing whatever it takes until something happens.

Beloved, how desperate are you? How much do you hate that situation you are in? Have you got that much holy anger in you that you want to keep striking until that situation is completely destroyed?

SELAH!

19. May 2017 · Comments Off on PRAYER IS KEY FOR YOUR NEXT LEVEL OF BREAKTHROUGH‏ · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Power and Authority, Prayer, Spiritual Growth

Elijah was a man with a nature like ours [with the same physical, mental, and spiritual limitations and shortcomings], and HE PRAYED intensely for it not to rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months (James 5:17 AMPC).

Beloved, don’t you find it interesting that ‎of all the great things Prophet Elijah did, his prayer is what’s highlighted, letting us know how important the role of prayer is. Elijah is someone that was recorded for doing many remarkable things and while there’s the tendency to focus on the things he did, let’s realise that he couldn’t do any of it without the basic essential and that’s why the Bible tells us that HE PRAYED and there are times when we just need to put a full stop there. ‘ELIJAH PRAYED’.

We are given a very good picture of how Elijah prevailed in prayer to birth things. We are told that… Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bowed deeply in prayer, his face between his knees. Then he said to his young servant, “On your feet now! Look toward the sea.” He went, looked, and reported back, “I don’t see a thing.” “Keep looking,” said Elijah, “seven times if necessary.” And sure enough, the seventh time he said, “Oh yes, a cloud! But very small, no bigger than someone’s hand, rising out of the sea.” “Quickly then, on your way. Tell Ahab, ‘Saddle up and get down from the mountain before the rain stops you.’” (1 Kings 18:42-44 MSG)

Elijah took the birthing position and began to PUSH which has been turned into an acronym for Pray Until Something Happens.

Beloved, Jesus also spent a considerable amount of time praying. On one occasion, Jesus… insisted that His disciples get into the boat and go ahead [of Him] to the other side to Bethsaida, while He was dismissing the crowd. And after He said goodbye to them, He went to the mountain to pray. Now when evening had come, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and Jesus was alone on the land… At about the fourth watch of the night (3:00-6:00 a.m) He came to them, walking on the sea… (Mark 6:45-48 AMP).

Jesus obviously knew the importance of prayer and I’m wondering how many of us have reached that place where we feel we ought to start rescheduling things in our lives to give more room to prayer? Most times, we try to fit prayer into our busy schedule but there’s a stage you get to where you finally see the wisdom of doing it the other way round. That stage where you realise “Lord, I definitely cannot do this without You”.

Beloved, you cannot be a powerful Christian if you have a poor prayer life so it’s time to pay due attention to prayer… be unceasing and persistent in prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:17 AMPC) …The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results (James 5:16 NLT).

14. March 2017 · Comments Off on THE PRICELESS VALUE OF KNOWING CHRIST · Categories: God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Identity, Jesus Christ, Power and Authority, Relationship, Revelation, Spiritual Growth, Suffering

I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead. I want to suffer with Him, sharing in His death, SO THAT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I WILL EXPERIENCE THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD! (Philippians 3:10-11 NLT)

Beloved, in our feature text, you almost get the sense that Apostle Paul is speaking as if there’s a danger of missing and coming short of knowing Christ and so was desperate to do whatever he needed to do. This was not because he thought he could do anything to gain his salvation. NO! This was a holy and reverential fear of shortcomings and probably the reason he urges us to… continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

Apostle Paul knew that there was some pressing forward to do. He needed to keep pressing on and needed whatever help he could get from our High Priest who had been there, done it, got the victory and has made help available for our own journey (Hebrews 4:15-16).

The reason Apostle Paul makes this statement in Philippians 3:10-11 is to know Jesus in a way that transformed him both spiritually and morally. He knew this could not be done in his on strength so was willing to do and suffer anything to gain access and experience the mighty power that raised Jesus from the dead. That same power dwells in us and is working in us to change us (Romans 8:11).

Beloved, Jesus Christ has made available for us the power we need to change into His image and likeness and personally, I don’t want to dance around that power but tap into it and see it working in my life – I want to know and experience all of Jesus and I’m not deceived. It may take some tears, some suffering, letting go of things and dying daily to self.

Apostle Paul went on to say… Finally my dear brothers and sisters… Not that I have already attained this—that is, I have not already been perfected—but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14 NET).

Beloved, we would not reach complete perfection until when Christ returns to take us into His eternal kingdom but it is my earnest prayer that we ask for the strength and grace to press on and strive towards the price. I pray that God opens our eyes to understand what we need to do to know Him more… the strength to surrender to His will in our garden of Gethsemane, carry our cross and to allow what needs to die in us die so that we can live for Him.

02. January 2017 · Comments Off on THE DELIGHT OF MEDITATING ON THE WORD · Categories: Decision making, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Power and Authority, Revelation, Words

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do (Psalm 1:1-3 NLT).

Beloved, have you ever had those days when you just feel like you need to read your word out of duty‎? Those days when you think you are doing God a favour by reading the word for the day? Those days when you just read the word so you can tick it off your To Do list? Well, if that has ever been your experience, permit me to ask you to take a minute right now and say this short prayer; “Lord, Your word says… For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him (Philippians 2:13 NLT)… so in 2017, I am asking that You give me the desire to delight in Your word, meditating on it day and night because I realise that that’s where my fruitfulness lies”.

Beloved, the book of Joshua says… Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do (Joshua 1:8 NLT). Let this be your reality this year – where you know and you know and you know that your prosperity and success depends on meditating on the Word of God. Job said… I have not departed from His commands, but have TREASURED HIS WORDS MORE THAN DAILY FOOD (Job 23:12 NLT). While David said… Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path (Psalm 119:105 NLT).

I started reading the book of Genesis and throughout the first chapter, all you will hear is… “Then God said, let there be…”. We are then told that… By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] BY THE WORD OF GOD, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible (Hebrews 11:3 AMP).

… BY THE WORD OF GOD… Beloved, you need to live by the word of God this year and nothing else. You must desire it like food and if you don’t have appetite, remember to ask the Lord to give you the desire to meditate on the word day and night… For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13 AMP).
