Continuity (Faith Diary Series)


You may be in the tunnel of life right now. Life may be dark and hopelessly blank. May I tell you this from the bottom of my heart, THERE IS AN END. Get out of your worries and your expectations shall not be cut short.

There is nothing that has a beginning that has no end. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. There is always a light in the end of the tunnel.

Listen, this is not the way things are going to be forever. The book of Habakkuk. 2:3 says, The vision is yet for an appointed time but at the end it shall speaks and not lie: Though it tarry, wait for it because it will surely come and it will not tarry (there is no carelessly written statement In the scripture, trust me).

The best is always reserved for the last. There is always an expected end. For I know the thought that I think toward you. Saith the lord. Thought of peace and not evil, to give you an expected end. (Jer.29:11).

Friend, just incase you are about to throw in the towel (being discouraged); please, never backed down. Don’t give up yet. The arrival of your breakthrough is approaching. Continue. And keep pressing. Engage more than ever before in the things of God: Pray more, fast more, obey more and sacrifice more. And I bet you you will never regret it.

Continuity is the golden rule. But who so looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work; this man shall be blessed in his deeds. (James.1:25).

When king Nebuchadnezzar was manipulated to create a golden image, and enforced a law against praying to the ALMIGHTY God other than his deaf and dumb image. But Daniel continued. The king later testified that Daniel’s lord that Daniel served continually has delivered Daniel. And made an enactment that the people in the land of Babylon should serve only the God of Daniel.

You see, people only believe you when you are consistent in what you are doing. Because you are not seeing the result yet does not mean that it will not manifest. Continuity is the golden rule, I repeat again. Choose to serve God in truth and indeed, not on contract. Maintain your stance both in-season and out-season.( Read Hab.3:17).

The cheapest way to store up for yourself a glorious and enviable future where by you will be walking upon your high places in life is CONTINUITY.

FAITH DIARY (COMMANDMENTS)


In today’s series of FAITH DIARY, I would be sharing with us about “Some Commandments Rooted In The Scripture.” Commandments are injunctions given by divinity to humanity solely for the benefit of humanity.

PRAISE

Praise is a commandment, an order or instruction given by God to humanity. It’s “Let everything that has breath praise the lord” (Psalm.150:6). You don’t need to have “breadbefore you acknowledge God with praises and thanksgiving. If you have ever lost anything God is the reason you have not lost everything.

Get this straight: If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. Praise isn’t something that you do spontaneously or when something gigantic has happened in your life. A Praise lifestyle is pathway into the manifestation of God’s presence (Acts.16:25). It’s God’s presence/aura that makes things happen in life – not you.

PRAYER AND FASTING
Prayer is a commandment. “When ye pray” (Mat.6:6). When signifies “period or time,” that means that there is a time that you must pray. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. The bible says “All Men ought to pray and not to faint.” (Lk.18:1). Mark the word “All Men “- not all pastors that are supposed to live a lifestyle of prayer. 1Thessalonians. 5:17 says, Pray without ceasing.

Fasting is not an advice, neither an admonition. Fasting is a commandment. “When ye fast.” (Mat.6:17). There must be a time that you must fast. Until you are tired of blessings don’t be tired of fasting (Prayer and fasting has no expiry date). There are some certain mountains that will not give way until you fast.

TITHING

Tithing is a commandment. Bring ye all tithe into my house that there may be meat(Mal.3:18). Where your tithe stops is where your blessing stops. Tithe provokes the release of supernatural provisions and also a divine covering (preservation) for your blessings.

In Summary, God is a commander. He basically operates on commandments- which are nonnegotiable. Our responsibility is to play our part of the deal and trust God to deliver His own part (Know that you can’t help God to deliver His part). Understand that God is ever faithful than you and i. He is not a man that should lie (Num.23:19). He has integrity! His integrity will be at stake if you obey Him and don’t have results to show – results are the cardinal proofs of genuine obedience. God does not speaks empty word.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Num.23:19).
