God is a commander, He basically operates on commandments and attached rewards for fulfilling them. Until you follow them, rewards are farfetched(Job.36:11, Ex.23:25, Jos.1:8, Deu.28:1).
God has not commanded us to punish us but to EXPAND us. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous (1.John.5:3). Things that will impress you won’t EXPAND you, things that will EXPAND you won’t impress you. God doesn’t speaks to impress people, God speaks to EXPAND people (Deu.28:1-3).
Students don’t fail exams merely because they don’t know what to write. In most cases, most students fail in exams because they fail to follow instructions. In same vein, many people run with failure marks in life by ‘unfollowing’ scriptural instructions. It’s a risk to unfollow scriptural instructions.
What Are The Scriptural Commandments To Key Into For Your Expansion?
- Praise’s commandment
- Prayer’s commandment
- Soul winning commandment
- Fasting commandment
- Giving commandment
Praise is a commandments. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord (Psalm.150:6). If you want to see God praise Him, praise is where God lives. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful‘ atmosphere, a ‘Godful‘ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere. God still works wonders in praise. Praise is the spiritual medium through which we transfer our battle to God (2.Chronicles. 20:22) and when God take over, your battle is over.
Prayer and Fasting
Prayer and fasting is a scriptural injunction. When ye pray…(Mathew.6:7)
When ye fast…(Mathew.6:16)
Wait a minute about this, certain mountains remain at the spot, unperturbed, standing as barriers, until you engage in prayer and fasting. Mountains are: sickness, sweat, oppression, failure, poverty; darkness confusion; frustration; and stagnation. Listen: Some red seas will not give way until you put up a fight by engaging the power of prayer and fasting. Many believers have sold (and are selling) their birthrights to food, the same way Esau sold his to Jacob – your birthright is too precious to be sold off.
In Luke.2:37, we saw a widow at the age of 84 that departed not from the temple, she served God with prayer and fasting day and night. Prayer provides the software for a lifetime service (spiritual stewardship). Many people only know prayer as a platform to ask for bread and butter but only few know prayer as a platform of service. You can’t engage in prayer labour by praying kingdom oriented prayers which rewards are unmatchable and remain the same. Serving God in turn procures you divine health and long life. My post, A Message To My Generation, talks more about benefits of serving God.
Soul winning is not a gift neither a talent. It’s a commandment. Every believer is an ordained soul winner. There are two mandates for all believers: a) prayer, b) soul winning. Every genuine believer is an addicted soul hunter. Every soul hunter is a public figure (Dan.12:3; 2Cor.2:9).
Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way (Luke.10:3-4).
Ye 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 you (John.15:16).
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever (Daniel.12:3).
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it ( Malachi.3:10).
If you’re not a delightful giver, you will die poor. Supernatural law states that the larger you give the larger your coast of blessings, contrary to natural law (discounting law) which states that a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Supernatural law will always works against natural law. Abraham, for instance, a man of liberal soul, entertained angels with a cow unknowingly (I mean who does that these days?) and there was an eruption of overflowing blessings. If you were children of Abraham you would do the works of Abraham. Till date, we are enjoying from the blessings of Abraham through Jesus Christ (Galatians.3:14). Jesus Christ has come to connect us to the blessings of Abraham. It’s our utmost responsibility to follow the steps of Abraham. One habit that everyone must consciously cultivate from the life of Abraham is Prompt Response. Prompt obedience is the hall mark of a winning believer.
