“For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night” (Psalm 90:4).
What a revelation! This means God can do in one day what will take a thousand years for men to accomplish. In a second, He will do for you what no man can ever do. When the children of Israel were about to cross the red sea, they didn’t have to fast and pray for deliverance, it took only a moment for the sea to part. All that was required of them was to follow God’s instruction and do what He said to do (Exodus 14:16).
In all these, the most important thing is to keep your heart on the Word of God and follow the leading of the Spirit. It’s only through the information God brings you that you’ll know what your next line of action should be. Suddenly, you’ll discover that all the doors before you are open, and that your struggles are over. This wouldn’t take God anything but a moment. But first, you must know His will concerning the situation you are faced with and allow His Word and Spirit come into it.Uncategorized tagged by pcadmin
When you look at the past months in retrospect, can you convincingly say you did everything God told you to do at the beginning of the year? Whatever your answer might be, I want you to know that God loves you and He desires for you to make much more progress than you’ve had since the year began. He may have already started showing you the changes He wants you to make and the things He wants you to do in order to reach the place of your dreams by the end of the year. Therefore you must be prepared to follow through with the decisions you made because the adversary seeks to stop you from reaching the place of your dreams.
The major issue with many people is inconsistency. They easily change with the tides. It’s a good thing to have good plans; it’s great to make Word-based decisions, but it is another thing to follow through with them. Those who don’t follow through with the right decisions, are as unwise as those who didn’t even make any decisions at all. You don’t get the results just because you made decisions, the results come when you have followed through with them.
Make a quality decision to follow through on everything God has told you. The Word never changes; it will produce the result of what it says. Live a consistent life in the Word of God because that’s the way to always remain victorious in Christ.Uncategorized tagged by pcadmin
The identity crisis is probably the greatest problem in the world today. It is the root of all wars, genocides, civil unrest and racial discrimination. Sadly many of God’s children are caught in the web of this crisis; they still don’t understand who they are in Christ, and until we are fully acquainted with our true personality in Christ, we can’t effectively impact our generation.
God is trustworthy; whatever He says is truth and you can bank with it! Peter displayed such trust at the Master’s Word on the lake of Gennesaret. The Lord Jesus had just used his boat to preach to the multitude that thronged Him. Afterwards, He instructed Peter to cast his net into the sea. The only reason Peter obeyed was because it was the Master that spoke, since the circumstances were against that instruction. The result was a harvest so great he had to call in another boat to help with the catch (Luke5:5-7).
Abraham also demonstrated such trust in God when He told him to leave his native country- a place he lived for many years and owned much property. He forsook all immediately, in obedience to God’s Word to him. Abraham didn’t ask God, “Where to?” He just gathered his family and belongings and went, not knowing where he was going but trusting that the Lord who said “Go!”, would show him where. When you trust God, you will see farther than you can ever fathom.
What has God told you to do? What vision has He brought into your heart? The reason He gave you the instruction is because He knows you can do it, and when you obey Him, it will turn out for your good, even if you don’t see it yet.Uncategorized tagged by pcadmin
The worth of a man is measured by the greatness of his adversaries. You measure his importance by the power of the resistance he faces. The man that God uses will collide with powerful forces because the message in his mouth will be resisted.
God’s confidence in man is measured by the kind of decisions he makes. He can dare you to make unpopular decisions or take steps that can stir the nest of others. But He will never ask you to do something stupid. If God tells you to do it, you will come out victorious at the end. There may be a lot of heat but if you are tough, you will be standing when the fire burns out!
Jesus already said in His Word that we would be persecuted. The prophets of old were seriously persecuted; the Apostles were striped naked, flogged and stoned; some were even killed. But they rejoiced in all these because they made God’s Words and obedience to his voice top priority. The Lord Jesus was also rejected by His own.
Therefore, as the Word says, be followers of them who through faith and promise, inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12).Uncategorized tagged by admin
There is a certain system the world operates. And Apostle Paul calls it: ‘the wisdom of this world’. I am making reference to that system of the world headed by Satan. Concerning this wisdom, the Bible says, “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish” (James 3:15). The wisdom of this world is foolishness unto God.
The danger is that the wisdom of this world usually presents to you nice-sounding, common sense, savvy principles which appear very appealing to the senses. They sound like good advice, but as far as God is concerned they are foolishness. For example, the wisdom of the world says “the flu is in town so be careful when you are around sick people, so you don’t get infected” but the wisdom of God says they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mark 16:18).
As a Child of God, you have to be careful not to get carried away with the wisdom of this world. The Bible tells you to guard your heart diligently (Proverbs 4:23). Don’t allow just any information get into your mind; study God’s Word pensively and be full of His wisdom.Uncategorized tagged by admin
Information is the key to today’s world and anyone who wants to win cannot afford to be ignorant.
Information is the key to knowledge and knowledge is indispensable in our contemporary world, because the man who lacks adequate wisdom will always be at the mercy of the one who has it.
The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:5…
Without doubt, the Word of God is the most important source of knowledge. However, you must constantly put your mind to work by studying useful materials to keep you updated with the latest information in the world today. The good news is that you have a sound mind to comprehend all the information of this world. You are capable of analyzing and understanding scientific knowledge.
It’s up to you to put your mind to work. Become studious and study informative materials. Go after knowledge that would improve your life and your environment. Take advantage of the wealth of information that is available in the world today.Uncategorized tagged by admin
In architecture, the higher you want to build a house, the deeper the foundation has to be. The great buildings we see all over the world, were not built in a hurry or carelessly. The Lord Jesus highlights this same principle in Matthew 7:24-25, which states thus;
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which buildeth his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
The foundation of a man’s life, determines how successful he will be in life. This simple, yet powerful principle, underscores the importance of the right foundation for the structure you want to build. It is applicable to whatever you want to build in life; it may be your career, business, finances, family and relationships.
The reason for the problem inherent in some people’s lives is the absence of a deep and firm foundation; and that is the Word of God. Paul said, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1corinthians 3:11). And Jesus is the tabernacle of the Word of God in flesh.
Build a solid foundation for your life with the Word of God. Take time to meditate on the Word. Don’t speed-read your bible. Let the Word soak in your spirit. And use it to imbibe godly habits into your character. As you do this, you drive your roots deeper in God, and no amount of trials in the world can shake you because you are built on a firm foundation.Uncategorized tagged by admin
Under the Old Testament, there were only three offices that had the anointing of the Holy Spirit. These offices were: the Office of the King, the Office of the Prophet and the Office of the Priest. If you weren’t in any of these offices, you weren’t permitted to speak words of power that would prevail upon life’s situations. The Children of Israel had to depend on the anointing on these men to move ahead.
However, things are different in the New Testament. Anyone who believes in the Lord Jesus can receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit; this is the anointing. Sadly, some people are still running around, looking for someone to pray for them. That is not to say it isn’t good to get someone to pray with you, but you have to get to that point in life where you can stand on your faith and apply the Word of God to change life’s situations to please you!
There are believers today who as though they are in the Old Testament. Though they pray in the name of Jesus, their lives are a revelation of the Old Testament. They call God a consuming fire. Sure, He is a consuming fire but He doesn’t consume His children. The bible says we are not of them that perish but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” (Hebrews 10:13)
If you are going to change life’s situations, you have to apply the principles of the Word of God. The beautiful thing about the New Testament is, the power available to anyone and everyone that believes.
