Discipline


Disc

Discipline is not how convenient a given task is, it is going beyond your best in order to deliver a given task. It is given what it demands.

The subject discipline is very crucial in any field of life. There is no record breaker in his comfort zone. Breaking record requires stretching out from your comfort zone, it requires going extra miles. There is no star without a scar. Nothing of value will ever be for free, there must be a price you must pay.

Just like the way we have it in the physical, so also in  the spiritual. It is not just about obeying  God’s commandments, but it is the level of your obedience. God rewards us according to the level of our works in the kingdom.

Behold I come quickly my rewards are with me to give everyman according to his work shall be.”Rev.22:12.

God does not rewards group, He rewards individual.

You must put the flesh into total subjection in oder to practice what the word says, the flesh has no profit. You must even put sleep under to pray so that you will be able to do the will of God.

Wherefore lift the hands which hang down; and the feeble knees.” Heb.12:12

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience. The infilling of the Holy Spirit that makes you dead to serve. Christianity is sweet when the Holy Spirit is involved.

“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgment and do them.” Ez.36:27

The topic Holy Spirit is rarely discussed, but it is one of the most important topics. Until you engage the Holy Spirit in your prayer life, don’t expect serving God to be easy.

Praying in the Holy Ghost is not nonsense, we are chanting mysteries, connect with the spirit world by speaking in tongues.

The Holy Spirit helps us to pray according to the will of God, it helps us to build our faith.

Until you change levels in your spiritual life, don’t expect your level to change in the physical.

It is not about having a growing business, it is about having a growing business man. It is not about having a growing blog, it is about having a growing blogger. It is not about having a growing academics, it is about having a growing academician. You must mature and grow in the things of God.

Interestingly, Jesus Christ was born just like anyone of us, but he grew in wisdom and knowledge. You can’t afford to stay in one position, you must grow.

Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”Lk.2:52

On the mount of transfiguration in Mat.5:17, after the voice from the cloud has declared His sonship. Jesus ascended his throne, vested with authorities, both positive and negative forces were compelled to obey him. There were some occasions when He didn’t had to speak, His presence compelled demons leave out their victims.

But ye, beloved building up yourself on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” Jude.1:20.

The Holy Spirit is a vital spirit that helps you to remain committed, dedicated and to build up your faith. Therefore, engage with the Holy Spirit

 

 

 

Understanding the Power of Faith


What is is faith?

  1. Faith is a substance of the things hoped for and the evidence of the things not seen. “Now faith is the substance of the things hoped for; evidence of things not seen.” Heb.11:1
  2. Faith is not waiting but faith is an action. “And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.” Mat. 9:20
  3. Faith is taking responsibility – The fact that you are still doing what the word says implies that you still believe in the word. “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own self.” JMS.1:22
  4. Faith is obedience – it is putting God’s word to work and faith without work is dead.  “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and not works? Can faith save him? Even so faith, if it hath no works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and i have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” James.2:14/17-18/20

Why Do I Engage The Power of Faith?

  • Take a daily dose of God’s word by hearing the word of God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom.10:17
  • Think the impossible and see the invisible – In case you don’t know, God also answers thoughts just as the way He answers prayers. For she ‘said’ within herself, if I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Mat. 9:21-22
  • Sound/declare what you believe. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21. You are what you think and sound. If you think and sound failure today, you can’t wake up tomorrow to see success. This may seems unfair but this is what the scripture says. “For as he thinketh in his heart so he is.” Prov.23:7

How Do I Engage The Power Of Faith?

You need to engage the power of faith because it takes only faith to emerge an Overcomer. “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is that victory overcometh the world, even our faith.”1Jn.5:4.
