Personal Responsibility 💕

Personal responsibility. God does not bless groups, He blesses individuals; God does not promote group, He promotes individuals (See Revelation. 22:12). My covenant work and your covenant walk with God are highly personal. An individualistic approach will always result in a realistic supernatural result. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his life. Until you stop blaming somebody and start holding yourself accountable for your actions, don’t expect a change of position. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah, that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. (Isaiah.51:2). Don’t blame God, blame yourself; don’t question God, question yourself. God is ever faithful than you and I (See Numbers.23:19).

Consistency. Consistency is the rule of the game. Tireless, undying, unrepentant obedience is the master key to the continuous flow of supernatural rewards. But whoso 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 deed (or blessed indeed). (James. 1:25). It is one thing to be blessed; It is another thing to keep the flow of blessing running over our lives continuously. Solomon tasted the blessings, but that took him away from God and his kingdom was crashed. Caleb followed God to the end; Paul followed God to the end; Jesus obeyed God to the end. My prayer for somebody reading this is that: may you run this race to the end!

Some folks have served God for 5 years, but they are no longer on track; while after 50 years some folks are still panting after God tirelessly and the results are shown. Listen to this: where you are is smaller than where God is taking you. Don’t give up. Never backed down. Keep pressing on.

God is a God of time and season. He makes everything beautifully blossom in its time (See Ecclesiastic.11:3). You can’t climb a tree from the top. Trying to move before God’s timing is always like a curse. The fig tree went ahead of its time, and it was cursed from its root. You need patience; you need endurance. You can’t climb stairs from the first step; you need to start from the ground floor. There is no shortcut in life. You can be rich and not be blessed. The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. (Proverbs 10:22). The blessing that comes from the Lord is ‘sorrow-free,’ ‘sickness-free’ blessings Weeping is not permitted to go beyond a night and there is an appointed time for every vision (See Psalm.30:5; Habakkuk.2:3). Has your weeping gone beyond a night? Hear the good news: your weeping days have expired!

Welcome to a world of unlimited possibility. According to the ‘Abrahamic’ covenant, every child of God is ordained to reign as either king or a nation. Abraham is a nation; Isaac is a nation; Jacob is a nation. Jesus came to connect you and me to the blessings of Abraham (See Galatians.3:14). That means you’re an individual as a nation. Understand this: you are meant only for the top in your field. In your business, career, finance, and academic you are meant for the top only. The scripture says you will be the head and not the tail (See Deuteronomy.28:13). As long as you met the condition, the result will show. All you need to do is to hearken and obey. As far as God is concerned, your making has already been made (prepared) and it’s obtainable by you by faith (See 1Cor. 2:9; Hebrews.11:6).

Wait a minute, information is the key to the realm of possibility. Possibility is enhanced when you are thoroughly scripturally informed and well informed in your field. The more materials of men and women with proven results that you consult and absorbed the more closer you are to the world of unlimited possibility. So, knowledge increased our confidence in possibility.

marriage as an institution ordained by God

Marriage is an institution ordained by God (See Psalm.68:6). If the scripture says he that finds a wife, find a good thing, they that seek God shall not want any good thing and God has given us – made ready – all things about life and godliness (See Proverbs.18:22; Psalm.34:10; 2 Peter.1:3 ). That means your marital destiny is ready-made in heaven. Somebody reading this will prosperously marry this year! God will connect you to your heavenly ordained husband and wife and married blissfully in Jesus’ name! However, I am marrying this year and no devil or hell can stop it.

Wrapping things up, the mentality you possess determines the results that you’ll access (what your life will become). Failure thoughts equal failure life; breakthrough mentality equals breakthrough reality. Until you carry an individualistic mentality in your approach towards serving God, you are lost in the crowd.

Practical Faith That Works

practical faith that works

To become a giant is to follow the steps of a giant. You cannot have the faith of Thomas and expect the blessings of Abraham (If you are children of Abraham you will do the works of Abraham).

What is faith?

  • Faith is not waiting; faith is a doing or moving force.
  • Faith is putting God’s word to work.
  • Faith is not cheap talk, but hard work.
  • Faith is not mystical; faith is practical. It’s acting in line with what you believe.
  • Faith is believing the invincible and daring the impossible.
  • Faith is the substance of things not seen and evidence of things hoped for (Hebrews.11:1).

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James.1:22; NKJV).

Useful material: Practical Faith That Puts You On The Run

What Makes Faith Works?

To be spiritual simply means to be scriptural. Spirituality is living according to the dictates of the scripture. Obedience to scriptural injunctions is the gateway fulfillment. Faith without work is dead; faith is impotent without obedience. Obedience is a sign of trust. The fact you’re obeying is a sign that you believe. “Demonstration” is the keyword here. Show your love for God by obeying His commandments.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock (Mathew.7:24-25).

Nothing mystical in serving God; there is simplicity in Christ that makes life easier. The Bible is a covenants book. The word “testament” is a Greek word that simply means “covenant.” The first and second testaments mean the first and second covenants. So, we have the book of covenants (both first and second covenants are applicable, Jesus did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill It). All you need to do is to play your part of the deal and let God play His part. The scripture cannot be broken. It works!

What the devil does is to make the word seem too simple to believe. It might look too simple, but that’s your way out of struggle. Whatever He tells you to do, do it – even when it looks foolish (John.2:7).

But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2.Cor.11:3).

(See Deuteronomy.28:1-3 & James.1:25)

Biblical Examples of Men Who Put Faith To Work

(1). Abraham – The secret behind Abraham’s generational blessings is prompt obedience. Every time God told him to do something he acted immediately. When God told him to circumcise all males in his generation, he responded promptly; when God told him to get out of his kindred and fling to an unknown place, he started the journey early in the morning; when God told him to offer Isaac (his only long-awaited son) as a sacrifice he obeyed. As a result, God made him a symbol of generational blessings. The blessings we are enjoying today are the blessings of Abraham of which we are connected through Jesus Christ (Galatians.3:14).

(2). Jesus – Jesus is our perfect example. He submitted to the will of His father, following His instructions, knowing when to walk secretly or openly. As a result of obedience, he was enthroned with a name that’s above all names in heaven, in the earth, and under the earth (Philippians.2:5-10). Any negative and unwanted thing that has a name is compelled to bow to the name of Jesus. Thank of it: sickness is a name; poverty is a name; failure is a name; marital siege is a name; stagnation is a name; oppression is a name. They must all bow to the power and authority in the name of Jesus when you use it – don’t just call the name, use it. However, you cannot be committed today and not be decorated tomorrow.

(3). The 3 Hebrew boys – Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego would rather die than to bow to the golden image of the king. They saw their God worth dying for than to bow to strange God. And God saw this dogged determination in them, His heartbeat was saying “I must rescue my children today.” They were not pastors, God called them His servants. You don’t have to become a pastor to obey God. Just have a heart for God irrespective of your calling and God will deliver you.

(4). Daniel – Daniel would rather die than to defy himself with a portion of the king’s meat (Daniel.1:8). He prayed three times a day despite the ganged up against him. As result, he was relevant in six kingdoms. Every divine-content-person is all-time relevant. You are the solution that the world needs. A divine content individual is fit anywhere. We carry a universal gospel, it works the same way everywhere.

(5). Joseph – By choice, Joseph reigned. Because he knew where he was going, he wouldn’t allow his destiny to be trashed in Potiphar’s house, he knew that Potiphar’s house was only a passage; he had seen himself self on the throne. You can’t have where you are going and not package yourself dangerously to get there. Every scriptural commandment is for your profiting. You are not helping God; you are helping yourself. It’s your choice that determines your lot in life. Choose to be different. Your journey to greatness begins with your obedience to the fear of the Lord.

Final Thoughts

  • Faith is acting in line with what you believe from the word of God.
  • Your faith is fake without proof because faith is the evidence of things not seen. Without full proof, your faith is questionable.
  • Faith can be handled like a stick and be used to quench all arrows of the devil. Take (faith is taking) the shield of faith…
  • Faith is not mystical, but practical; faith with disobedience is dead.
  • Biblical examples of men that put faith into work are Abraham, Jesus, Joseph, Daniel, the three Hebrews boys, and many more. I’m interested in knowing more biblical examples of men and women who put faith into practice; you can share your ideas in the comments section.
