Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

Partnership is the gateway to all round settlements. Wrong mentality about partnership will reduce engagement. Understand this: we are not working for God; we are working with God. God does not use people; He blesses people. He is not a taskmaster; He is a paymaster.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Those who are partnering with God are not far from all round settlement in all areas of life.”

In partnership, every shareholder is entitled to a dividend. So also you can’t partner with God and miss out His dividend.

Isaiah 45:19 KJV
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

We are not working for God we are working with God

 How can I partner with God?

Go for His mandates – The 2 mandates of God for every Christian are prayer and soul winning (lk.18:1, Jn.15:16, Jer.1:5). “All men,” not all pastors, ought to pray and not to faint. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. Prayer is a commandment. “Pray without ceasing.”(1Thes.5:17). Fainting in prayer equals failing in life. Prayer does not only change things; prayer changes people.

Luke 9:29 KJV
“And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.”

Whatever you pray for others answers back to you. It is human intercession that provokes the release of divine intervention. Standing in the gap for others (“the lost” and nations) is the surest pathway to a life of  fulfillment.

 Matthew 6:9-10, 33 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Hannah at 84 years old, prayed kingdom advancement prayer (lk.2:37). Daniel prayed kingdom advancement prayer to a point that the king had no choice than to call him Belteshazzar ( a god’s name).

Daniel 4:18 KJV
“This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.”

Fear GodWe make our marks in life by fearing God. How can I fear God? By obeying scriptural injunctions (Jn.14:21)

Our journey to greatness in life begins with the fear of God. We live in a kingdom of choices and not chances. The ball is in our courts. Daniel made a choice to be different (Dan.1:8) you too choose to be different.

Daniel 1:8 KJV
“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
It’s common saying that “If you can’t beat them join them” this statement is a satanic statement. You can’t beat them by joining them, or else you will remain under them. Choose to be different.

Joseph flee fornication when he knew that his destiny will be tied down.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it. It pays to live right. Its never too late to turn. Live ready it might be too late to get ready.

Our journey to greatness begins with Godliness

Love God: The hotter your love for Christ the hotter you become in life. Carry a heart for Christ. Those who have the injunctions of God and obey them are the ones who love God.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

What is love? Love is simply the word that you receive, believe and obey.

Passion is the key word here. Love built this blog. Love provokes the release of supernatural manifestations in all spheres of life.

Love is making the kingdom of God your number 1 interest in life.

Get this straight: If the things of God does not move you, don’t expect the move of God to your direction. God is ever committed to the welfares of those who are committed to His interests.

Until you run after the kingdom agenda, supernatural additions is out of view.

 1 Kings 17:13 KJV
“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.”

 Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Your years of toiling is over. Our God is a God of additions. Serving God will not reduce you, serving God will increase you. Our God is a God of multiplication.

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.”

Things that others are running g after will be running after you when you plug into the frequency of love by hunting after souls both on the prayer alter and by reaching out to the lost through envagelism.

 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

The interpretation of this scripture is that some people are praying for the lost to be saved while others are on the field compelling them into the kingdom. Both category of labourers have their rewards. You can do both as many believers are doing today.

I decrees – your settlement in every aspect of your life has finally come. God will settle you spiritually, physically, financially, and academically; in your health, career, job, business and marriage in the name of Jesus. No body here will remain unsettled in the name of Jesus.

Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

What is partnership?

Partnership is a cooperative relationship between people or group who agree to share responsibility for achieving some specific goals.

From this definition, some key words are to be noted.

Co operation which is based or agreement. Amos3:3

Responsibility which is based on maturity.
Before an agreement can be reached between 2 people, there must be trust and love in place and the responsibility part leaves you with doing what you have to do to get you desires result.

This means that every one has their roles to play to achieve a goal.

God has His role to play as much as we have ours, incomplete fulfilment on our own side places our settlement on a shaky ground. Remember that God can’t do our part and vice versa.

Settlement on the other hand is having everything regards our affairs attended to at all times..
Because God is not a user of man but a blessed of those who differently seek him.
Once you are in partner with a person, you always put everything in place to make your communication active.

How does partnership settles us?

  • Partnership with God places us under His care and guidance (PS 23:3).
  • It makes you a carrier of grace. Remember you are in accordance to Him.
  •  It makes you seek His kingdom (Matt 6:33).
  • It makes you serve under Him (Ex 23:25).

It is important to know that our love has to be in place before partnership can stand with God.
All partnership is based on love. once we love God we are sure to obey Him at all times and if you obey Him,there’s no way He will leave us unattended to at any time.

Partnering with God


God does not use people, He blesses people. Earthly employers can use you and dump you but God can’t use and dump you. God is not a taskmaster, He is a pay master.

FAITH IN LIGHT


Life cannot be beautiful than your faith.

C). Through the instrumentality of faith – Your faith level equals your miracle level. Hear this: you can’t have what the level of your faith can’t carry. This is why it’s our responsibility to build up our faith by being responsible to spiritual things.

Jude 1:20 KJV
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. Engaging the HolyGhost in our prayer life is sure way to build our faith.”

Nothing moves God like our faith. The three Hebrew guys would rather die than to bow for other gods except the Mighty God they had known.

With that dogged determination in them they were rescued from the furnace of fire. They saw there God worth dying for and God was moved.
The devil who is our enemy is helpless with our faith, he has no choice than to race on his heels. Even death is bows out to faith.

Even the most hopeless situation can take a new shape with our faith at work. No situation can be as hopeless as the dry bone in Ez.37.

With faith you can walk  in the valley of shadow of death with no harm.
the valley of the shadow of death is the territory of the wicked. the wicked is the devil.

Why do I need light?

Those who are in light are the solution that the world needs today. We are in a period of gross darkness. Even statemen are confused. Helter skelter everyone runs.

By redemption we are center of attraction.

You can’t be lighted and be useless. (Biblical examples: Daniel and Joseph).

Light versus Darkness


Light versus darkness

Psalm 119:130 KJV
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” 

Darkness does not struggle with light. Darkness is helpless with light. The Moment you switch on the light in your room what does darkness do? It disappears of course. When light comes in, darkness goes out.
1 John 1:5 KJV
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

When light comes in darkness goes out.

Life is about the choices that we made. It’s an issue of choice and not chance.

It works if you can make the right choice. The ball in your court. There is freedom of Choice.

A choice between light and darkness, health and sickness, sweet and sweat, abundance and poverty.

Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his life. Don’t ever blame God, blame yourself; Hannah blamed God, her husband, and everyone..that could not move God.

Until light came in Samuel was not in view.

How can I walk in the light?

 

Follow God’s guidelines. It’s who and what you follows that determines who and what follows you. You don’t have to struggle to get things done. My word for you tonight is Obeyobey and obey

Following scriptural prescriptions is the hallmark of lighted men.

Hear this: there are no lucky men there are lighted men. Don’t mistake light for luck.

Please don’t envy me where you find me tomorrow. You can’t be committed today and not be decorated tomorrow (Phil.2:8-10)

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

Light versus Darkness


Darkness reigns until light prevails. The word of God is the light of men. It is the container that carries the God’s light.

John 1:1-5 KJV
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

There are two governing bodies ruling the earth. God and devil, good and evil; light and darkness. You either belong to one body or the other. There is no middle way.

Matthew 6:24 KJV
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Where you operates determines what comes out of you.
When you operates in the light you will be releasing blessings upon yourself and others. When you operates in the darkness you will be releasing curses and magics upon yourself and others.

From the evil pole of darkness, sickness, disease, poverty, frustration and failure emanated. From the good source of light; wealth, riches, success, health, strength and ideas are erected.

It’s the incoming of the word of God that sparks off the light. It’s the word that your receive, believe and obey that emits the light.

UNDERSTANDING STEWARDSHIP


Understanding stewardship

Examples of stewardship in the Bible

Above, in Genesis 1:26-28, we observe that the concept of stewardship is woven into the fabric of creation. The desire to steward has been hardwired into the soul of every person, which explains why, in varying degrees, people have a desire to create and manage.

On this foundation, let’s take a look at some examples of stewardship in the Bible.

1.  Adam was called to work

From the very beginning, God had good intentions for work. In Genesis 2:15, we read, “The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”
God called Adam to “work” and to “keep” the garden. Basically, God commanded Adam to take care of things on his behalf.

God’s call of Adam too wasn’t a burden, and God isn’t a vindictive taskmaster. Since Adam’s call to work preceded the entrance of sin (Gen. 3), we can see that God had a good purpose for work in mind.

2.  Joseph oversees Potiphar’s house

Joseph’s is arguably one of the best examples of biblical stewardship (Gen. 39).

After Joseph was brought to Egypt, the LORD made him a successful man. While Joseph was in the house of his Egyptian master, we read, _Gen. 39:4 “So Joseph found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had”

Joseph didn’t own this home.
He didn’t own the furnishings.
He wasn’t responsible for generating income.
But he was given stewardship over the house and everything his master owned.

Referring back to the biblical stewardship definition above “the manager of a household” you can see why Joseph is the perfect example of what it means to be a Steward.

3.  Moses, let the land have a break

Remember, God owns the earth. As the owner of everything, He makes His desires for His creation known. We see just one example of this in Leviticus 25:1-5.

In this passage, the LORD told Moses to let the people farm the land for six years, but to make them take a break from farming the ground in the seventh year.

What does this have to do with stewardship in the Bible?

Simple.
From this passage, we see that God owns the earth, he oversees the growth of produce, and He knows how to handle his land.
