Anytime you feel tempted to worry, rise up and begin to worship God and pray. Faith is action. Faith is not wishful thinking.
Jesus was a man of action. He walked constantly in the word of God. If you believe the word that says, rejoice in the Lord always, thank God in all circumstance, pray without ceasing and make melody in your heart to God, then you will wak in those instructions.
Worry is a habit and prayer is a habit. Just as God has not given us a spirit of fear, He has not given us a spirit of worry.
The Bible says that fear has to do with punishment and torment. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of freedom and liberty
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there isliberty.
Worry is a choice and prayer, praise, worship and thanksgiving is a choice.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 6-7, NKJV).
The reason why the word of God says pray without ceasing, make melody in your hearts to God, rejoice in the Lord always, thank God in all circumstance, let the word of God dwell richly in you in all wisdom, meditate on the word and think the word is because what you allow in your mind can make or destroy you. As a man thinketh so is He (Proverbs 23:7 KJV) Thinking wrong negative discouraging thoughts is very harmful to your emotional, psychological, mental and spiritual well being.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Think about what I am saying, because the Lord will enable you to understand it all.
2 Timothy 2:7
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Decide today to not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. Decide today to partner with the Holy Spirit and not reject the Holy Spirit. Rejecting the thoughts of God and the word of God is submission to death and destruction of mind and darkness of soul. Darkness of soul manifests as torment, emotional and physical illnesses.
Reject worry, fear and every thought that is contrary to the word of God.
May the Holy Spirit enable you and help you as you meditate on the word of God and worship God. Amen.
If you want to achieve something different, you have to do something different. Do not be the average, mediocre Christian who compromises and follows the patterns of this world. Set yourself apart as fully committed to Christ and His word.
Start acting, start doing. It is in acting and doing that God will bless you. Without acting and doing, you deceive yourself. It is the work of your hands that God will bless not idleness. God does not encourage or reward bad behavior, so, stop being idle and lazy if you have formed that habit. Habits can be broken.
You need to help yourself and God will supply the grace as you pray and desire change. If you have decided that you will not train and equip yourself for success, what do you want God to do? Will He come down from heaven and do what you are supposed to do for yourself?
If you keep on reading and watching things about relationship and marriage, yet you lack the necessary skills to sustain a marriage what do you want God to do?
If you are always criticizing, judging, and blaming your spouse to the point of stifling his or her emotions and causing harm to their emotional health which will in turn damage their physical health, you only have yourself to blame for the failure of your relationship. Train and equip yourself for spiritual, mental, health, financial and marital success.
You need to make effort to know and apply the skills that will make you excel in what God has called you to do and in the relationships that God has placed you in.
If you want to achieve something different, do something different and improve yourself in skills that you lack. Also make sure that you do and act. Too much reading without application won’t help you. Wisdom is the right application of knowledge. Get knowledge by reading, listening and watching and also have the wisdom to apply the knowledge that you acquired.
Some people read the Bible all day but do not know how to apply it or act on it. They hardly pray. They do not have passion or desire to obey the word that they have read. So, if you want to be different, start acting differently today. Faith gives birth to action. Read your Bible and also act on it. Do not just say Lord, Lord but also walk in the will of God.
Do not spend too much time on YouTube and social media except you are using it to learn academic, educational or creative work that you can use to improve yourself and make money. You can spend time on YouTube and social media for entertainment, inspiration or other things if you like, but not too much time. More of the time you spend on Youtube should be on educational, academic or creative content. Spend more time being active and working. If you run out of money, those blogs, shows and entertainment content that you watch won’t pay your bills. Too much play is not good, and all work and no play is also not good. Be balanced and wise in all that you do including the way you manage your time on social media.
Also, put on the complete armor of God and pray without ceasing. Pay the price! There is no short cut to holiness and financial success.
Always ask the Lord for what you need. If you do not ask, you will not receive.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.
Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
James 4:2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
Sometimes, the Lord speaks to me and gives me prayer points. He tells me exactly what I should ask Him for. He knows how to hit and destroy problems from the root. You need to pray right with God.
You need to ask for what you need. Never take it for granted that God knows your needs, so you don’t need to ask and express yourself.
Jesus Himself prayed to God, and asked Him for what He needed. Learn how to talk with God and communicate with Him. It gives Him joy and pleasure when you approach Him with your requests.
Psalm 141:2 says, “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”
Your prayer and petition is an offering to God. Never forget that. Your prayer needs to rise like incense and be inhaled by God. Let your prayers enter God’s ears. Persist. Get rid of obstacles to answered prayers.
Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Delight In God. Seek His Face
Job 22:26 Surely then you will delight in the Almighty and lift up your face to God.
Job 27:10 Will he delight in the Almighty? Will he call upon God at all times?
God wants you to call upon Him at all times. He wants you to pray continually and without ceasing. Jesus was a man of prayer. If Jesus needed to constantly pray and seek God’s face, you also need to do the same.
Prayer can become sweet when you get to know God, our father, intimately. Form a habit of constant prayer. It is only prayer combined with the weapons of our warfare and the complete Armor of God that will lift you up, into spiritual maturity and victory. By prayer you defeat Pharaohs, mountains, and giants.
Read your Bible, hear from The Holy Spirit, put on the complete Armor of God, and pray without ceasing. Delight in God and thank Him at all times. Rejoice in the Lord and celebrate Him. Let your countenance be right when you go into prayer. Get rid of worry and anxiety, and replace them with prayer, waiting upon the Lord and seeking His face. Psalm 21:2 You have granted his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.
God wants to grant you the desires of your heart and give you the request of your lips, However, will you persist and persevere like the persistent widow? Will you cling to God’s promise like Abraham, or will you faint and give up? Determine to fight till the end. God loves it when we fight in the place of prayer. God is a warrior, and He wants us to be warriors like Him. He is training our fingers to fight and make war. Make war spiritually. The war is fought and won in the spirit world. Live above sin, worldliness, and prayerlessness.
Psalm 81:10 I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth, and I will fill it.
Open your mouth wide and begin to pray and fight. Your birth right is deliverance. Go to God with your desires and petitions. Pray for the Holy Ghost fire and presence to fill you, surround you, and consume your enemies and problems from the root.
Just last night I was praying, and the Lord spoke to me twice at night, and instructed me to go offensive. Offensive means asking the Holy Ghost to consume your enemies with His glory, fire, or presence.
To go offensive means asking God, to consume the powers fighting you. For many years, He has been teaching me, and emphasizing the importance of fighting from the offensive angle, rather than constantly dodging bullets, arrows and weapons and being on the defensive.
Take the problem and tackle your enemies from the root. If there are weapons and arrows constantly coming your way, and you do not neutralize where the weapons are taking off from, you will not know victory, but once you destroy the root, you will have victory. Constantly pray for God to destroy the roots of your problem. Some problems have several roots, and those roots can be pharaohs, and satanic priests and priestesses.
The weapons, bullets and arrows are demons. The weapons of your enemy are their idols, gods, and powers. Pharaohs spiritual weapon was his gods. God said in Exodus 12:12
“On that same night, I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD.
Remember that Moses’s snake swallowed Pharaoh’s snake. Jehovah Himself swallowed the gods of the Egyptians and rendered them powerless.
You need God to execute judgement against the gods of your enemies. Pray for God to execute judgment on the gods of your enemies, but don’t stop there. Remember that God also dealt with Pharoah. Pray for God to defeat stubborn pharaohs, sending gods and idols to attack and harm you.
Some people have hardened their hearts like Pharaoh, and you don’t need to die for them. The Israelites were delivered, so God wants to deliver you. If a human being has partnered with demons, and have vowed to destroy you, and your destiny, it is not your fault and it is not God’s fault. Pray for deliverance.
Let God consume those who are stubborn and unrepentant and have vowed that it is only over their dead body that you can live and have peace. They have taken oats of no repentance and oats of no retreat no surrender. That is not your fault. They will fight till their last breath.
Saul kept trying to kill David until his last breath. David cried and was in pain when Saul died. Very sad, but David could not change Saul’s heart from wanting to harm him and eliminate him. Life is indeed a mystery. Some humans have vowed that their only happiness and joy, is when other humans are in pain, and slavery and are destroyed, just like how Pharaoh determined to keep the Israelites in slavery and captivity.
The more you try to negotiate with them to release you, the harder and more stubborn they became, just like pharaoh. God kept sending Moses to Pharoah to make him see sense, and release the Israelites, but he was stubborn and refused. You cannot negotiate with spiritual and physical terrorists.
So, a human pharaoh can take an oat to keep sending demons and evil your way, until you stop that Pharoah. Only the power of God can stop someone, that is a Pharaoh in your life. Pharoah vowed to keep the Israelites in captivity and slavery. Some humans with flesh like you, have vowed to keep some believers in spiritual slavery and captivity.
They love their power and your pain, and will never stop until God stops them. Life is indeed a mystery. Pray, pray, pray. Pray to God to defeat and consume your problem from the root. That is how to be on the offensive.
When you are on the defensive, the demons of the Pharaoh in your life, will keep tearing your protection and keep penetrating your inner man to plant weapons, demons, illnesses, and problems. However, when you are constantly on the offensive, together with your defensive and protective armour, the human priests and pharaohs will be on the run.
They will run away from the fire of God because they don’t want to be consumed by the fire of God. Many years ago, the Lord spoke to me and said, “it is only fire that they are afraid of.” Evil people and people with demonic powers, are only afraid of the fire of God. Use the fire of God to defeat them and stop them from destroying your life and destiny.
So, present your petitions to God and make sure that you apply both the offensive and protective weapons and armour. Let your armour and weapon be complete, let the Holy Ghost fire fill you up, surround your aura, and consume your enemies. Plant the Lord, enough in your aura and fight, in the place of prayer. War is fought and won by the Lion hearted and warriors. Be a spiritual warrior.
May the Lord help you, and defeat every Pharaoh, mountain and giant fighting your life.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, in JESUS name.
In this revelation, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Some are not pilgrims but pretend to be pilgrims.”
We are pilgrims and sojourners on our way to the promised land of Heaven. God wants us to be aware that some people who call themselves believers are not pilgrims or believers at all. They are not on any journey to Heaven at all. They mingle with us, eat with us and fellowship with us. There are false teachers, false apostles, false Christ’s, false prophets and false believers. There is also another “Jesus” and another “message.”
Some false believers even masquerade themselves as messengers of Christ. They actually preach another Jesus, another gospel and another message other than the true one. As messengers of Satan pretending to work for Christ, they promote self, worldliness and materialism and they also dilute, distort and pervert the message of God’s grace. They are perverted and perverting and constantly seek to pervert.
For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11: 13-15
For if someone comes along and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a different spirit from the one you received or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you are all too willing to listen. 2 Corinthians 11:4
False believers and teachers can actually entice and derail a true believer and child of God. Beware. Not everyone who claims to be believer is a believer. Be led by the Holy Spirit so that you will not fall into their snares, tricks and traps.
May great grace be upon us in Jesus name. May grace, mercy and peace be ours in full measure.
Never presume that you will fail tomorrow, simply because you failed yesterday and today. The past does not determine your future. Leave the past with its mistakes and failures behind and look forward to a brigher tomorrow.
God can change your tomorrow and He wants to. He has forgotten your past and washed it with the blood of Jesus. God never sees failures and mistakes for the repentant. He sees possibilities.
Do you know that time is a gift just as life is a gift. God has given us time so that we can use it wisely to enhance ourselves and be a belessing to people around us. No successful man on earth ever wasted time or stayed idle. Jesus was never idle in fact He said, “my father is always working and so must I.” Presidents and top surgeons, innovators and market leaders did not become successful by wasting precious time- They valued the gift of time and kept busy.
People who waste time need to rethink and repent. No one passes tough exams by not investing enough time in rigorous studies and no one will be a light to others by being idle. We are the light of the world and must show good example by not being idle.
Reinventing yourself is about changing your image and re-publishing yourself. It is about self-polishing, self-processing, self-transformation and attaining to heights you never dreamed was possible. It is about changing you identity. » Read more
