Moving forward means you are bound to meet tough times but the tough times will bring you closer to your goals.
If you refused to move you will be stuck. There is a “move” in the realm of the spirit. Time waits for no one, pick a date and push out. There is a spiritual movement that keeps you alive. In growth and development there is a movement.
I want you to know the role of time in divine upliftment. If you understand time, you can take over territories.
Everything God created was with time. There is no way you can turn the clock back. There are things God has destined for us this year to achieve. God has a specific time for everything on this earth. He has a purpose He wants to use us to fulfill.
When your set time comes, protocols are suspended, little things will give you maximum results and favor over labor will show forth.
You must know there is a virus that can eat your set time – PROCRASTINATION
This year you must not procrastinate. You must plan – Habakkuk 2 : 1- 3. This year 2020, you must write down your plans for this year. It is a year of action, you must put things to work.
Psalms 100 : 4, Luke 7 : 11 and Psalms 100 : 1 – 5
Thank God we are alive to be joined to the living. God is God. He remains God and He is the only God that can never change.
Thanksgiving is the act of gratitude and appreciation to your maker. Appreciation goes a long way. Let’s thank him in another dimension.
Today that He has given you the strength, you must demonstrate it. Love is not proved until it goes through process. There is difference between the word of mouth and the heart . You must genuinely show appreciation. If you must prove to Him, you must go the extra miles. Things that can take your life must have happened to you but here you are , living freely. You don’t need the whole world before you can appreciate Him. Be contented with the little you have so God can give you more.
Did you know that the best way to gain acceptance is by showing appreciation. Appreciation is a divine platform for more, where people will hear your voice.
Gratitude unlock the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance. It turns disorder into order, it turns confusion into clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast and turns a house into home.
Gratitude can make a past to become a blessed present and birth forth a good future. Gratitude to God is the key that creates a clear vision for tomorrow. Like the Igbo people do say “E’kele Eze na nke’ ómere, ómekwa ozó” (When you appreciate the King for what he has done, he will keep doing more)
No matter what they have done to you, your mouth is still there to praise God. The more you appreciate God, the foundation of your problem will change.
When there is problem, gratitude bring peace. It makes our past to be meaningful, makes today peaceful and create a vision for tomorrow.
The highest appreciation is not only uttered by words but to live by what you are saying – Luke 17 : 11. Live according to the gratitude.
Forget the circumstances, forget what you are going through. Did you know that even though you are professional enough, there are unprofessionals that will cause you problem.
He who thanks God with lips, thanks God in part. The full thanksgiving comes from the heart. Obedience is the best way to enjoy grace.
Thanksgiving is power, it prepares the table for what you have not seen. It attracts blessings. One thing that increase your capacity is giving – Psalms 100 : 1 -5. Psalms 150 : 1 -6 encourages every living things to always praise the Lord.
I pray for you … I prophesy divine protection, divine perseveration and divine security; all these rest upon you till the new year. May you successfully cross over to the new year.
Friend of God, we are in the end of the year where your case requires an emergency. God will not disappoint you in Jesus name.
The word emergency is a serious and unexpected often dangerous situation that requires immediate attention.
When someone’s case is urgent, it is the right time in the spirit realm for him or her to be blessed and highly favored by God. It is my prayer today that God will highly favor you.
When your case is urgent, God is ready to turn every ugly situation for a testimony.
“Some situations requires desperate emergency; that is, machine gun prayer”.
Sometimes, what the enemy understands is force. Blind Bartemaeus in the bible needed an emergency attention and he said to Jesus “that I might receive my sight”.
When you seek for God’s help, it is appropriate you go straight to the point like blind Bartimaeus. Make your request straight and avoid telling stories.
No matter that challenge in your life, the emergency unit in heaven will intervene. As you present your emergency case to God, cry out and ask for quick help.
2 Ways to Make your Case an Emergency
1. Have a scale of Preference – Mark 10:46 In emergency situations, there are needs which are more important than the others. When Peter was in prison, many doors were shut against him but when God showed up, the first door was opened and thereafter, the iron gate was opened for him to go out of the prison. If God can open the most important door, every other doors will open.
Solomon also, asked for wisdom out of his many needs.
Friend of God, it is wise you ask God for that pressing need you have. Do not put many cases forward.
In Mark 10:47, blind Bartimaeus, a beggar heard that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by; so, he cried out and said “…Jesus thou son of David, have mercy on me”. As he cried out, he had faith that Jesus would make him whole. Blind Bartimaeus reset reset his priorities when he met with Jesus because he knew that once he receives his sight, he would no longer beg but would work and fend for himself.
2. Do the Unusual – Luke 5:18, Mark 10:47-52 It is important you do the unusual when presenting an emergency case to God. Blind Bartemaeus cried out to Jesus that he may receive his sight. After doing the unusual, verse 52 said that he received his sight.
Child of God, you must do the unusual to receive your expected blessings from God. In Luke 5:18, a man sick of the palsy was brought through the roof to where Jesus was. In doing that unusual, that man was healed.
Doing the unusual means that you should pray out of your comfort zone. You cannot sleep freely when in a bad situation. Paul and Silas when in prison, prayed all night and God came to their rescue.
Friend of God, cry out, cry for help! You cannot end like this.
The Centurion in Matthew 8:5-13 had an emergency. He presented his case to Jesus and ONLY required the word of Jesus so that so that his servant will be healed. This man is not even the servant of Jesus, but his request was granted. It does not matter whether you are a worker in church, just cry out to God and you receive help. The faith of that the Centurion brought healing to his servant even in that same hour.
I pray for you… Any machine gun that is required to bring you out of that ugly situation, it will be applied by fire.
Grace is an unmerited favour. It is an undeserved and unearned goodwill, love and acceptance that is fully given to us because of what Christ did on the cross on our behalf. Jesus has paid the price on the cross for us.
The grace we receive is not only for the forgiveness of sins, but also to enjoy supernatural breakthrough.
Our text in 1 Corinthians 15:10 clearly quotes Paul the Apostle as saying that it is by grace that he (Paul) does anything.
Child of God, in engaging the power of grace, people need to see it reflecting in everything we do.
”For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”. – Ephesians 2:8.
Being saved by grace is not your effort but God’s gift.
God said to Abraham “ I will make of you a great nation”.
If you are under a spiritual father and you are doing well, that is grace. God promised Abraham in Genesis 12:2 that He will make him (Abraham) a great nation and that he shall be great blessing.
Grace is God’s hands on a man’s life. It is that grace that makes the man great.
Characteristics of Grace *Grace is a living virtue *Grace is the influence of the Holy Spirit that works in a man’s life *The grace of God brings breakthrough and victory that people would love to identify and partner with you.
Did you know that grace can be frustrated, crippled, and paralyzed in your life?
Here are Factors To Watch Out For: 1. Laziness – James 2:17 When you attach laziness to to your life, God’s grace will not work in your life. If you want God’s grace to be active and bring blessings to you, remove laziness. Lazy people gossip and complain a lot. This will obviously lead to poverty.
When God wants to bless you, He gives you a task. Noah is an example of who God blessed and preserved after he carried out the task of building an ark.
2. Lack of Love for God – 1 Corinthians 2:9, Romans 5:5 Love is a covenant channel to receiving grace from God. Do not hesitate to love God so you can receive God’s bountiful blessings.
One way to show love for God is to be punctual in coming to church. Also, give God your quality time for service. While you have the strength, use it for God. It is the love you have for God that attracts His unmerited favour and grace. This means that God’s grace ONLY come to those who love God.
3. Pride – James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5, Proverbs 16:18 This is a silent destroyer of grace. Pride can make you look so arrogant and also make you believe you can do everything by yourself. In James 4:6, God resists the proud and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE. To engage God’s grace for supernatural breakthrough, submit yourself to a higher authority. Grace is our guarantee flight into breakthrough.
Pride goeth before destruction. – Proverbs 16:18
4. Sin – Romans 6:1-2, Romans 8:13, Ezekiel 36:27. This is an antivirus which eats and destroys grace. I pray that sin will never find its way into your life. Romans 6:1-2 says God forbid that we continue in sin because if we do, grace will not abound in our lives.
Sin is just the problem of man and the problem of the church. If it is dealt with, and the love of God grow in our lives, we will grow in grace above every limit.
I pray for you… Every breakthrough that is yours will be released to you through grace in Jesus name.
