Wait on God

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalms 27:14 NIV

When we become impatient and react without thinking, we can do damage to ourselves and others. Sometimes when we pray and God doesn’t respond quickly enough, we decide to take matters into our own hands and things get worse as a result. When God tells you to wait, He is saying, “Trust me with the timing, the ways and means, and you will get a better result.”

David wrote: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!” (vv. 13-14 NKJV).

Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out?

It can be tough to wait on the Lord. It’s much easier in the heat of the moment to lose your calm. Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out? Do you think this situation will be different? Not a chance! What do you want? Temporary relief or a permanent solution? Haste makes waste!

When you act in haste, you do things you can end up regretting and having to apologize for. Or worse, justifying! Impulsiveness got King Saul into serious trouble. Instead of waiting for the prophet Samuel to arrive and the priests to offer a peace offering to God ensuring their victory over the Philistines, Saul grew impatient, usurped the role of a priest, and offered the sacrifice himself. When Samuel asked him why, he replied, “I felt compelled” (1Sa 13:12 NKJV). And the result? “Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly…now your kingdom shall not continue’” (vv. 13-14 NKJV). So, wait on God.

Where is your faith??

Are you getting overwhelmed by the challenges you are facing now ? This is not the season to allow fear and doubt to cripple us , deliverance is here!!

The Egyptians you see today ,you shall not see them anymore for Canaan is calling come along let’s cross the Red sea . These are not the days to focus more on what we lack but to focus on God the author and finisher of our faith.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Faith is knowing where you are going and taking action to reach there. Faith assures us of things which are hidden from the naked eye. Faith makes you to envision the impossible as possible.By faith you can challenge your Goliath to a fight even when all odds are against you.

Faith assures us of things which are hidden from the naked eye.

#apostoliclife

Faith activates your body into action , whilst fear cripples your mind. Faith makes your actions to be in alignment with your ultimate purpose here on earth . With faith your mind automatically nullifies negative feedback or suggestions from your peers .

Faith opens your mind to create the impossible . Without faith it is impossible to please God. So basically in this land of the living faith is imperative . By faith the sick are healed and the poor get rich so there is no reason to have doubt in the body of Christ.

Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
Luke 8:22‭-‬25 KJV

Jesus’ disciples in this situation were convinced they would drown and die ,they were scared and desperate whilst Jesus Christ was fast asleep. Their translation of the raging waters was death by drowning ,how regularly have we seen the end of our careers or marriages with our own very eyes .

Many a times we have translated sickness as death . At times we had sleepless nights due to unpaid bills. Our children at times drive us to madness with their disobedience but what does the Bible say?

When businesses are crumbling down most people commit suicide. Life is not supposed to be easy but we are supposed to be stronger than our challenges. When nothing makes sense and we have lost everything do we look to Jesus or start crying like orphans.

An orphan mentality says no one will assist me but we are of God so when the going gets tough we call upon Jesus Christ. Yes the situation is critical and many people have perished in similar situations but we are to call upon Jesus Christ for help .

When there seems to be no solution for your problems try Jesus Christ. In these last days when everyone is living in fear of a world war 3 we need Jesus Christ. In this era where no one values marriage anymore ,for your marriage to last a lifetime you need Jesus Christ.

In this trying times where men are marrying men and women marrying women we need Jesus Christ to take control of our children so they won’t follow after such abominations. We need Jesus Christ now more than ever when new diseases are being discovered everyday.

Jesus said to his disciples ,”Where is your faith?” .The boat was about to sink but he asked such a question that means where your faith is really affects the results you get.In his response we can tell that faith really was the issue and not the storm.

What you see in any situation affects the outcome you get . Jesus Christ here referred to positive faith. The disciples had negative faith , negative faith sees the worst in every situation and blocks miracles from happening.

What do you see when you loose your job? The question is on what you see when things go wrong . There is a big difference in positive and negative faith. Negative faith brings defeat while positive faith brings success.

Where is your faith ,Jesus asked. He was not impressed with his disciples having faith in the ship drowning and their demise He wanted them to see God’s faithfulness in times of trouble. Jesus arose and rebuked the storm and it calmed down

The problem is not that God is not answering prayers but the issue is we have faith in wrong things. Man has chosen to put his faith properties and government instead of trusting in God thus we living in constant fear of the unknown . Our news broadcast channels are now the very sources of fear.

Wives are choosing to have their faith in their husbands instead of putting their trust in God and many families are broken. Where is your faith ? Disciples had too much faith on the boat the moment they noticed their boat couldn’t stand the storm they were shattered.

What you base your faith on determines the power you posses!!

#apostoliclife

When the economy crumbles ,what do you see? This is the season to put our trust in God. It’s not too late to invite Jesus Christ in your life. Whilst the world is marketing ideas on self sufficiency and self confidence we need to have full confidence in Jesus Christ.

By the authority of his voice the storm calmed down. Make a decision today to give Jesus Christ full authority over every aspect of your life today. In this season we need to have Jesus in our boats. His presence in our midst can really be the difference between life and death..

Join us today let’s carry our cross and follow Jesus Christ .In this season it only make sense to be under His guidance and support

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Matthew 28:18 NIV

Worrying is just a waste of energy

You are uniquely designed to enjoy life to the maximum . Wisdom is simply knowing things to give power to !!.Strength is found in discipline. Your joy is in the Lord!!

At times things don’t go the way we planned , and we are tempted to worry about a lot of things but we need to resist the temptation to worry over things we can’t control. Power comes from submitting every aspect of our life to God and asking for wisdom from him in every situation.

We are in an era where man at large are taking pride in sin. The love of God is no longer in them , they have elevated sin with their wealth . Funny how sin is funded by the modern society ,posing nude is what they are doing to get more followers on social media.

Worry normally stems from comparing our achievements with other people. Thus in trying to achieve many have faltered ,Jesus Christ is coming soon and we must be ready for him.

Let’s not give our power away by worrying . When worry takes over fear prevails . Worry is the very opposite of faith .We are to stand firm on the promises of God and act on his word even under persecution that’s where our power is .

When we understand the power of acting on the promises written in the Bible even under pressure and persecution miracles start happening. Our ability to exercise our authority as co-heirs in the kingdom of God is our strength.

Let God control the situation , when we submit every area of our being to Him the result is always in our favour. Even when people hurt or condemn us we are supposed to resist anger and resentment. We don’t own anyone or anything on this earth we are just ambassadors for God so with this thinking we won’t have anything to worry about for we will understand that God is working in our favour.

Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord , and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord , And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret— it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord , They shall inherit the earth.
Psalms 37:1‭-‬9 NKJV

Worry is the misuse of imagination and a thief of joy. In simple terms worry is simply the absence of faith. Once we entertain worry we give the devil the chance to manipulate us.Once you entertain worry ,you reap procrastination and inaction. We are instructed to trust God and to do good always ..

In persecution we are to do good always. There is freedom in knowing that we have God working in our favour at all times. This is not the time to envy sinners anymore , but to win them to Christ.

We are fortunate to be given time in this land of the living and whether we accept this or not how we use that time is very important for one day we will leave earth and we will have to give account to God. Our hospitals are full of people suffering from worry / stress related diseases ,that’s not our portion .

In everything we give praise to God , for wisdom comes from him. No matter what you are facing today give thanks to Him for he will surely give you a way out. He gives wisdom those who ask for it. All you need is wisdom to get out that situation and wisdom is freely available when you kneel down and ask for wisdom in prayer.

Where wisdom reigns there is no room for worry. My people are suffering because of ignorance . Ignorance is the real problem we need to fight by studying the word of God and being in alignment with His purpose here on Earth.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
James 1:5 NIV

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7 NIV

In our everyday walk here in the land of the living we are to be always feeding on God’s faithfulness , thus once we align our mindset on feeding on his faithfulness the future is always beaming with hope. There is hope for the lost in Christ Jesus , there is hope for you today if you choose God’s faithfulness over your own understanding .

Every little thing that was exalting itself above God’s faithfulness lost power when your sins were forgiven. In God you are not condemned when he looks at you the blood of Jesus Christ speaks for your life. By the same token of the blood covenant thus we are benefactors of the Abrahamic covenant and if benefactors we have a job to do.

Face whatever that has been worrying you and remind it of God’s faithfulness. Nothing and no one has power to send you in a state of worry . For our God is faithful .

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV

Shalom.

Follow us for more enlightened on the word of God

You need to do this it’s urgent

So the five men who had explored the land around Laish spoke. They said to their relatives, “There is an ephod in one of these houses. And there are also household gods, a carved statue, and a silver idol. You know what to do.”
Judges 18:14 ERV

The mystery or rather the effectiveness of a believer is solely based on the decisions he makes be it for or against something. An aggressive positive response to any situation or circumstance gives us the edge. The whole idea is not to judge things or condemn  but to actually be seperate from any evil connection in your midst.

A different kind of Christian is being addressed here … ,in Micah’s house there  is teraphim , ephod ,a graven image and a molten image so the last phrase is what I really want us to understand …  We see the responsibility being placed on the shoulder of a prayer warrior here … Yes they are worshipping idols … but in our culture you know what we do in these circumstances…

Teraphim (household gods) were known as givers of prosperity , they were ancestral gods carved in  human shape..the pagans worshipped these things but now we see the same idols in the midst of Israel.. So now it wasn’t a question of who owned these things but a question of getting rid of this taboo… The whole nation could not afford to perish just because one person was worshipping foreign idols.

Listen it’s true we are living in dangerous times , the devil is on the rampage destroying humanity , marriages and our children but are we going to stay idle?

No we are called to war this is the season to double-check our environment , sanctify our houses and ensure there are no idols in our midst.This is a season to take decisive action , we can’t continue living a life of sin ,God requires man and woman who are righteous and are always obedient to him. In

This is not the time to be living on the fence , decisions have to be made and it has to be now. In our houses we must not allow things that God doesn’t like. This is the time to focus our energy on God thus resist anything that might derail us from our faith.

We can’t afford to let these foreign gods dwell in our midst it is an abomination . These is the season for cleansing thus get rid of all the doctrines the enemy taught us and be true to I AM THAT I AM.

He rescued us from Pharaoh ,and with the same intensity he is destroying the Devil in his every attack he was rendered useless on the cross thus Jesus Christ made a public humiliation of him .The devil is defeated we have nothing to fear anymore ,he is only using intimidation skills to keep the masses in bondage.

He has no right to be in our midst , our finances ,our health ,our marriages and our businesses. He got no right at all , destroy every weapon he is using we need to burn down his altars and the graven images.

We refuse to be in bondage by associating ourselves ,with these gods in our midst. Sanctify yourself today remove anything linking you to these fallen gods be it addictions ,ungodly communication, pride ,envy , jealousy , ungodly soul ties. Be it ungodly habits it’s time to burn those habits .

Flee from ungodly covenants , flee adultery we can’t afford to have these household gods in our midst anymore.This is the day of your salvation come as you are though your sins are many , even if you are dying inside from sins you haven’t confessed before God will give you a second chance .

Unconfessed sins keep you in bondage , you tend to live your life with a guilty conscience and that is exactly what the enemy wants ,so that he will keep reminding you of your failures ,your downfall , your background , curses spoken against you ,ideas you believed and everything else he can use to keep you from achieving your goals.

Let’s take time today to confess all our sins , things we didn’t do ,the fears we had ,the opportunities we did not take . We need to confess our failures too , the failures you don’t talk about destroys you.Lets remove all these gods from our midst they are a black cloud these things are restricting our growth as an institution.

This is the day of our atonement thus anything reminding us of Egyptian rule and it’s system need to be wiped off from our memories. This is no longer the time to envy the slavedriver and his systems of keeping people in bondage.

For we are the children of light ,where there is light darkness has to move away. This is the season to take over authority of our destinies.Dont dwell to long on what you lost this is the season to focus our minds and energy to what the Spirit of God is doing.

We can’t afford to have the slavery mentality when we are co heirs in the kingdom of God .As co heirs in the Kingdom of God thus we have the authority to crush the system of the enemy ,destroy it so that it won’t be mentioned anymore in the future generations.

In place of what you were taught , start encrypting the laws of the Kingdom of God. Completely wipe of the database powering the enemy’s dominance in your life ,bring it to null .His dominance is a thing of the past ,we are the new generation and I AM THAT I AM is our King thus his Kingdom has come to redeem us from this yoke of slavery.

In place of the enemy’s dominance,laws and systems it is I AM THAT I AM laws and ordinances that will apply in our lives. We are the head and not the tail ,that mentality that made you a second class citizen should be utterly removed from your mindset.

No more limitations now , no earthly system can cripple us anymore for we operate on Heavenly principles . We deserve the riches of the land thus every authority descriminating against us getting our hands on the gold and diamonds of the earth should be destroyed ,it’s a spirit and it has to be dealt with.

Every arrangements ,or committees that were involved in keeping us in this cobweb of poverty should be brought to ruins. A new mindset is imperative , all these gods should be removed from our midst and real action is necessary.

This is a time for action , we have prayed long enough ,but couldn’t get results because of these foreign gods amongst us …This is the time to destroy them. Get rid of all the iniquities , anything the enemy was using to violate you it must be discarded.

Sanctify yourself therefore , do not be found wanting by entertaining foreign gods in your midst. This is our Canaan we can’t afford to ruin it by entertaining the very same gods that kept us in slavery.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:8‭-‬9 NIV

We are free already from the enemy , he is trying to tie us down by intimidation.He lost already and he knows it . His influence on our lives was destroyed a long time ago. He can’t influence your marriage and your finances he lost already .

Don’t grant him access to people in your community and those under your authority ,we are the priests of this generation the revival starts with us . And I am here to remind you not to loose focus of who you truelly are and what I AM THAT I AM requires of you.

The Son of Man Jesus Christ came to remind us to be united in the pursuit of enlarging the kingdom of God ,thus this message must reach the ends of the Earth. And all the crooked path will be made straight.

This is not the time to be idle you need to support the kingdom of God , be it evangelism , financially and in prayer. Don’t sit on the fence support the ministry of God today and it shall be well with you.

Once you devote yourself to enlarging the Kingdom of God , you are rest assured of victory in your every endeavour for we were promised security by I AM THAT I AM . Everything you own will be secured from being devoured by this enemy. Sacrifice all you have to the enlargement of the Kingdom of God thus you will be victorious.

The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you. The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
Deuteronomy 28:11‭-‬13 NIV

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.” Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.
2 Corinthians 9:8‭-‬13 NIV

Know who you are

Worry is a disease , with devastating effects. Most problems we have in the world stem from the doubts people have be it in their government , their spouses , their parents ,the religious institutions , Pastors and so forth…

People trust less ,well it could be for a good cause for it is in human nature to avoid pain at all costs but we are instructed to trust in the Lord at all times. Believe in the integrity of the gospel ,the truth in the Bible will set you free.

Wisdom attained is only beneficial if applied to real life situations. The Bible is a guideline of how we are to live our lives here on Earth. We are representatives of the kingdom of God ,so God really honours our existence ,and in us he is glorified.

He takes pleasure in blessing us and healing us from any form of sickness or infirmity.He gave us authority in his son Jesus Christ to cast out demons.In him we are co heirs in the kingdom of God thus refreshing isn’t it ..

Once you understand what you represent , and also the army fighting on your behalf I guess you will live differently right ……(For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
Psalms 91:11‭-‬14 NIV)

We are on a mission , that is to spread the word of God to all nations ,each and everyday with your capacity we need to be spreading the word of God .Let everyone know of this great love of God to us. Thus with that freedom do not be inequality yoked to the unbelievers .

Stop comparing your life to other people , glorify God in every situation .Comparing self with other people only leads to envy and dissatisfaction this blinding us from what God is really doing in this season for his followers.

Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord , and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord , And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret— it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord , They shall inherit the earth.
Psalms 37:1‭-‬9 NKJV

Let’s be content with our Creator and his capacity to bless and help us… Take a moment today and thank God for blessing you beyond measure. Let’s thank God for revealing deep secrets to us which are hidden to the heathens.

He saw it fit that we represent his Kingdom agenda here on earth … Hallelujah
