Ways to manifest your healing


A picture illustrating a crippled man that has gotten his healing

 

Sickness can be spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental.
There are instances of healing that happen immediately at the very first moment of prayer, anointing and there are instances of healing that happen only after long period of waiting and many experiences of prayer.

There is God-ward side and man-ward side to every battle and blessings, so while waiting on Jehovah Rapha, the God our healer for full manifestation of healing.

SACRIFICE OF PRAISE AND JOY

Thanksgiving is a vital key to experiencing the miraculous, we must not reserve for when miracle comes to full fruition.

It is in the Holy atmosphere of praise and worship that healing and miracle begin to manifest.

The sacrifice of Joy is the most difficult to offer when afflicted or troubled within and out.

Yet Nehemiah 8:10 says the Joy of the Lord is our strength.

Strength is emotional toughness and resistance, it is defensive ability.

Dancing, singing melodies, reciting psalms, smiling, laughing rejoicing in what the Lord says about us.

BE REALISTIC IN EXPECTATIONS

we need to overcome the realms of our 5 senses and human reasoning.

Our words have power to create or destroy.

Proverb 18vs 21 says there are power of life and death in the tongue

“I can’t handle this anymore, then the situation can be out of control”

“it is hurting more, as difficult as it may sound, our words control our lives

Mark 10vs 50 reveals the blind Bartimaeus threw aside his garment and rose and came to Jesus. The garment to this blind man was his valuable asset, being his status identification, his means of collecting alms, may be his source of shelter and warmth.

To us it can be no longer rely on whatever we had as any other hope of survival.

Casting away all doubt, no thinking otherwise.

Casting away all fear and connection of discouragement.

prayer is successful only when it is based on God’s word.”The supernatural therapy to supernatural healing is the word of God”

UNDERSTAND AND KEEP CONFESSING THE WORD OF GOD

Possess the promises of healing in Christ Jesus Ipeter2:24, Isaiah 53:4.

To keep confessing the word of God help curse the root cause of the problems and it releases Jesus into the situations.

Sometimes, healing seems to be delayed. In Exodus 5:22-23, Moses spoke the word of God(let my people go and serve me) to Pharaoh but he refused.
God gave Moses the strength to continue confronting Pharaoh with the word of God till his final destruction.
2Chronicle 7:14 says, if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray  and seek my face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.

There is need to examine life from any area of sin that has not being dealt with, repent, make restitutions if need be. It causes to falter in confidence before God and making request known, it also gives Satan ground to condemn and judge.

CHOOSE TO PERSEVERE

(waiting, hoping and trusting God)

God also uses our circumstances to refine and build our characters
Delay in manifestation sometimes means to grow us in faith and patience making us spiritually fit.

How to partnership with God


Partnership with God

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

By definition, a partner is a person who takes part in an undertaking with another or other, especially in a business or firm with shared risk and profit.

But tonight we’re talking about partnership with our lord business.

God original plan for mankind is that after this earth,mankind should have everlasting life with him. But at the garden of eden man lost this opportunity and began to suffer.

But in him infinity mercy, after sending a lot of prophets and the word is still corrupt. He sent his only begotten son,so that his original plan can be fulfilled.

Jesus worked when He was on earth and when He was going He gave us a commandment to go into and preach about the kingdom of God.

Jesus Christ said harvests are many but labourers are few. He needed so many labourers so that we can harvest plenty souls into the kingdom of God.

John 14-21, says he who has my commandments and keep them, it is who loves me. And who love me will be loved by my father and I will love and manifest myself to him.

God has work to be done on earth and He is looking for who to partner with him to get the work done.

If we love Him we will keep His commandments and obey His commandments.

Your love for souls of men and you loving what He love prove that you love Him.

You may be asking how can I be partner with God.

By Evangelize -go into the word and preach the gospel of our lord Jesus. Open your mouth talk to people about Christ.

By helping the work of God with your substance: be it your Brain, time, money etc.

Dream up some awesome ideas that can propagate the kingdom of God and putting them into action without minding the sweating of your efforts.

Another question you may want to ask again is what will I gain in partner with God?

John 14-21b say I will manifest myself to him. To who? To those that love him and doing His will.

These manifestations of God are the benefits you enjoy for partnering with him.

What are the benefit we derive for partnering with him.

we become conqueror – trouble will tremble at our presence because God presence is with us because He love us.

supernatural favour – when we have pleasure in God business, He will be with us and release divine favour unto us. God is with Joseph and He enjoyed a great flow of favour.

flow of sign and wonder – as you work with God He backs you up with sign and wonder. Paul as example mark16:20

Supernatural breakthroughs – anyone who love God is empower to be a pathfinder and a carrier of supernatural breakthrough. Permanent partnership with God make you a star forever and ever (Daniel 12-3)because His presence with you give you confidence and that lead you to breakthrough.

In conclusion, God is searching for a man and woman who will work with him on earth so that plenty souls will be harvested into His kingdom.

Are you ready to be a partner with God? Determine today and God will bless you.

UNDERSTANDING STEWARDSHIP


Stewardship means granting a trust to someone for profitable use.

Luke 12:42-48 KJV
And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? [43] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. [44] Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. [45] But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; [46] The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him , and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. [47] And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself , neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes . [48] But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes . For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

1. Stewardship is a gift to invest (Mat. 25:13-15). If we read these verses, we will understand what our heavenly father makes.

PS.24:1. The earth is the lord and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. Therefore, all of us are His creatures.

He was sent to us for our salvation. Jesus said in Jn.9:41, I must work the works of Him that sent me while it’s a day the night cometh when no man can work.

He also want us to perform like Him (Jn.15:16 & Jn 13:16-17). “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, He may give it to you (KJV). ” SO, we have responsibility which has been given by God.

2. Giving for a purpose –

Luke 16:1-9 KJV
And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. [2] And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. [3] Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. [4] I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. [5] So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him , and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? [6] And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. [7] Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. [8] And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. [9] And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. My reader, this is the problem we have in churches and the whole world. Stewardship is given for a purpose but we are not using it for God’s purpose.

When we read Acts of Apostle 4:32 _ And the multitudes of them that believe were of one heart of one soul, neither said any of them that ought of the things which He possessed was his own but they had all things in common. Churches have diverted from the laid down principles of Apostles and command of Jesus Christ.

In the world today, people are not fearing God who is the General overseer of every man’s deed. Stealing, corruption, etc have deepened down into the system even including the so called Children of God.

Remember, in the book of Rev 22:11-12, he that is unjust let him be unjust still and he which is filthy let him be filthy still, that is righteous let him be righteous still and he that is holy let him be holy still. 12, And behold I come quickly and my reward is with me to give everyman according to his works shall be.

3. Benefit of giving life style – It’s a style of living that reflect the attitude and values of a person or group. In the book of Dan.6:4-5 Then the president and prince sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom but they could find none occasions nor fault forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. If you as a christian can do like Daniel then your heaven is certain (Mat.25:31-34). Read and see the reward of a good steward. God will blessed you as you put it into practice.

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.

UNDERSTANDING STEWARDSHIP


Understanding stewardship

Biblical Verses on Stewardship

The Bible has a lot to say about stewardship, but here are some big themes emphasized in biblical texts on stewardship: The themes are as follow:

1.God created everything

Stewardship in the Bible begins with the very first verse of the Bible.

Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
We see in this passage that God is the creator of everything: He created the universe, the earth, and He created us. There’s not one particle in the entire world that was not created by God.
This is the beginning of all biblical stewardship principles.

In the New Testament we read
“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth….. all things were created through him and for him” (Col. 1:15-16).
The foundation of stewardship is built upon this reality.

2. God owns everything

Not only did God create everything; God owns everything (Job 41:11; 1 Tim. 4:3-5)
Job:41:11. Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
1 Timothy:4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy:4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1 Timothy:4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

This is the beginning of all biblical stewardship principles.
Our life is on loan from God. He has given us our life to steward for His glory and our goods.

As the owner of everything, God desires for all things to be redeemed (Col. 1:20)
Colossians:1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Including people, governments, businesses, and the arts. Said another way: God desires for everything to bring Him glory (1 Cor. 10:31).
1 Corinthians:10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Also see Psalm 24:1: “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.”

3. God delegates responsibility

God calls us to manage what He created on His behalf.
If we haven’t noticed, we do not see the individual members farming, building houses, or preaching the gospel. But, if we look with the eyes of faith, we can see God meeting the needs of people, drawing us to Himself in faith, and tending to His creation through billions of people around the world.

This is participating in God’s work, it’s picked up by Paul in his first letter to the church at Corinth: _1. Cor. 3:9 “For we are God’s fellow workers.”
Paul mentions again in _2 Cor. 6:1 that we are “working together with Him…”
God is at work in our life and around the world, and we have the privilege of participating in His work. Think about it this way.

Let just look through the books of the bible to see many people that God has delegated responsibility to.
When Jesus builds His church, He does so through our participation in His work by preaching the gospel.

When we are at our bagel for breakfast, God provided it for us through the work of farmers, bakers, truck drivers, and grocery stores.

Genesis 1:26-28: “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’

UNDERSTANDING STEWARDSHIP


Understanding stewardship

Biblical stewardship is one of the primary ways God calls us to live our life.

It’s a theme in the Bible we can trace from Genesis to Revelation. It’s a calling rooted in creation, highlighted throughout the Bible, and influences the way we live our life for the glory of God.
In this teaching, we are going answer some common questions and highlight the big themes of what it means to be a steward, including:

  •  What is the definition of stewardship in the Bible?
  • Bible verses about stewardship.
  • Examples of stewardship in the Bible.

Before we dive into Bible verses about stewardship, let’s start by defining what it means to be a steward.

What is the definition of stewardship in the Bible?

Has someone ever asked you to watch their kids? Are you responsible for managing an office or people on behalf of an employer? Do you have a financial advisor overseeing your investments?
If you answered yes to any of these three questions, then you are or have been a steward.

In general, to steward is to manage something on someone’s behalf. Whether a family member, friend, or employer asks you to watch over something, then you are stewarding or managing whatever they entrusted to your care.

In the Bible, stewardship is another way of talking about how you live your life. In the New Testament, the word “steward” is rooted in the Greek word “oikonomos,” which means “the manager of a household.”

If you were a steward in Ancient Greek culture, you were not the owner of the house. Instead you would have been the manager of the house and the household affairs. From making sure the home was clean to managing the finances and perhaps servants, you would have managed everything on behalf of the owner.

In light of Bible verses about stewardship, we will see that our life is not our own. Our life is on loan from God regardless if you acknowledge this or not and God calls us to steward everything about our life for his glory and the good of others.

To help us see the duties of a steward in the Bible, let’s look at some Biblical texts on stewardship that will give us a better idea of what biblical stewardship means.

The fear of God


The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom

From the scripture, we were told that the fear of God is the point where wisdom starts from.

Proverbs 1:7 KJV
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

This word hit me like a thunderbolt. “Servitude is a product of foolishness.” They don’t make  fools  kings (only the wise are made kings). Wisdom is to know the right to do and do it.

Isaiah 33:6 KJV
And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.

Wisdom is the stability this time that we are now(if you lack wisdom in this era, you will crumble to the floor). It’s my prayer that you won’t sink in life.

Hear this: Christianity without demarcation will not stand the test of time. You can’t beat them by joining them – you will remain under them. The day of judgement is coming when the sheep will be separated from the goats.

Malachi 3:16-18 KJV
Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it , and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord , and that thought upon his name. [17] And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. [18] Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

My dear readers, please be different. Choose to be different. Things that will impress you won’t expand you, things that will expand you won’t impress you. God doesn’t speak to impress people, He speaks to expand people.

 

You can't beat them by joining them, you will remain under them

 

Wait a minute, God saw this dogged determination in this three Hebrew boys that they wouldn’t bow down for any thin god expect the greatest God that they had known and God heartbeat was like “I must rescue my children today.” Did you know what happened? He delivered them.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. [17] If it be so , our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. [18] But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Listen to me: because others are doing it doesn’t mean that you should be doing it. The fear of God is your bail out in this generation.  Joseph flee fornication and he became a prime minister. Daniel was faultless and remained relevant during His time. Get this straight: you can’t fear God and be useless.

Since the days of the Patriarchal until now, those who have  reigned in life are those who fear God  (Men that carry heart for Christ). Hates whatever God hates; disapproves whatever God disapproves. This is the secret of rest.

It’s a restless world, it’s the jet set age. Whether consciously and unconsciously even believers are caught up in the web. Only those who will abide in Jesus by obeying His commandments will be at peace.

The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom (very correct).
