A MESSAGE TO MY GENERATION


A Message To My Generation

GOD HAS WHAT IT TAKES

You’re not adding to God, you’re adding to yourself. You’re not helping God, you’re helping yourself. You can preach but the Holy Spirit is the one that pricks.

God has what it takes to win souls by Himself, without our engagements. God can raise stones to shout Hosannah, if men refuse to praise Him.

He has what it takes to promote His project (God has a budget for every kingdom’s project here on earth).

Every scriptural commandment is for our benefit. God has not commanded us in order to grieve us but to bless us. He has not commanded us in order to punish us but to ‘polish‘ us.

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous (1 John.5:3).

CARRY A REWARD MENTALITY

You’re not working for God, you’re working with God. You’re partnering with God – that isn’t meant to cagoule you. In a partnership, every active partner is entitled to a dividend. So also, you can’t genuinely partner with God and not receive His dividend. You’re like a shareholder in God’s kingdom.

Serving God is not a waste of time. You’re not serving God for nothing but for something (have expectations). Results are proofs of your authentic stewardships. God isn’t a taskmaster, He is a paymaster. God is not looking for who to use but who to bless. God doesn’t use people, He blesses people.

All scriptural commandments are for our profiting. Serving God does not reduce people, it increases people. God is a God of multiplication. You can’t genuinely serve God and be small.

PRAISE LIFESTYLE

Among other things, praise is a commandment (it leaves you with no option), Let everything that hath breath, praise the lord (Psalm.150:6), and obedience is a requirement for the release of supernatural blessings over your life. You can’t praise God as a lifestyle and be few. Appreciation equals multiplication.

There is fresh oil in a praise lifestyle. Fresh oil means fresh revelation. Many people are operating on a stale oil. You need to access fresh oil to make things happen in life. Manifestation is a function if revelation.

There is supernatural presence in praise. If you want to SEEK God, pray; if you want to SEE God, praise Him. Praise is the cheapest spiritual medium to provoke the release of divine presence. You will see God practically in action when you get into praise.

You’re not sad because things are bad, things are bad because you’re sad. Turn all your bitterness, grumblings and complains into praise and thanksgiving. Acknowledge Him for who He is, what He has done and what He will do.

Praising God in the midst of seemingly hopeless situation is a sign of strong faith (Acts.16:25).

There is divine favour in praise. Favour colours your errors and covers your efforts. God is the king, when you dance shamelessly before the king, He will be moved and give you a free ticket to ask anything you want.

And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee (Mat.6:22).

It takes the wine of praise to get God intoxicated and cause blessings to be rained upon your life.

I believe that every new generation is an improvement on the previous ones. This generation of ours will give lives new meanings, more than our predecessors in the mighty name of Jesus.

How To Get Enlisted As A Candidate In The School Of Favour


There is this testimony of a candidate seeking an admission into a tertiary institution, this fellow was worried, fretted and almost completely out. Because he knew nobody who could give him an admission (no connections).

Then, he went to a great God’s servant to explain his predicament to him. The great servant of God told him “only if he knows who you knows you won’t be complaining he has been complaining.” Then, light sparked off, and something began to turn inside of this fellow. Therefore, he proceeded to the school of which he was seeking an admission.

On his way, a car parked by his side, the man inside the car asked the son of God, “how can I get to the school?” (the man was also going to the same school for the for his son’s admission). The son of God joined them in the car and they all went to the school.

Fortunately, the man did the admission of both the son of God and his son. Mysteriously, when the admission lists came out, it was the son of God who was admitted.

GOD was the man who rode his son majestically (on His chariot) into his admission.

I once had a story of a candidate who wrote an exam and scored zero. But when the examiner was marking his script, he angrily wrote double question marks which was recorded to the candidate as 77 out of 100. Imagine?

Now, let’s take a look at what favour is.

What is favour?

Favour is the aura of God that colours your efforts and covers your errors in life. Or better still, favour is the presence of God that engulfs his lover, then covers his errors and decorates his endeavours.

Every genuine believer is a God ordained candidate for favour. He is qualifies for an enlistment in the school of favour. “For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. (Psalm.5:12)”

Favour is not something that can be given by any mortal man. Favour can only be given by God. GOD is the lifter and builder of men. “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. (Psalm.97:6-7)”

How can I be enlisted as a candidate in the school of favour?

a) Kingdom Mindedness – to be kingdom mindedness means to have an addiction or to become an addicted pursuer of the kingdom’s agenda. This attracts raw supernatural favour into your affairs in life. The master key that unlocks the door of supernatural favour to all departments of your life is “Kingdom Mindedness.”

Let it becomes your ultimate goal in life if don’t want die in need and struggle. The cheapest way to avoid wastage: time, energy and destiny is to be involved in the pursuit of the kingdom’s mission. The kingdom’s mission is the rescuing mission. Become a rescue agent for Christ by saving souls from fire and every other things will follow, that is the way it works. It works like fire!

I pray that none of you reading this will become a waste.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

This scripture is enough for you if you can think enough. It’s enough to live a fulfilled life in a grand style.

A redirection of traffic takes place when you are on the street, online rescuing souls or on your kneels interceding on behalf of the lost and unsaved. You are a saviour as a believer, it’s your mandate to save others. Things that others are running after will be running after you – traffic’s redirection.

(b). Praise – There is a virtue of favour in praise (Mat.14:6-7). You don’t make things happen in life, it’s the presence of God that engulfs you that make things happen. And God’s presence can be cheaply accessed by entering into praise on a constant or consistent basis.

“But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. [7] Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. (Mat.14:6-7)”

God is the king. If you too can dance before this KING, He will ask you, my daughter or son, “what do you want me to do for you?” Just like the way He asked Solomon. Understand this, A praiseful atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere (See, Acts. 16:25-26). Praise lifestyle will always secure His attention. Be the Paul and Silas today! Be the Esther today!

King David became a man after God’s own heart by engaging in a praise lifestyle. He was confronted by the most incessant oppositions during his time but he won them all as a result of tireless praise, acknowledgement and thanksgiving. That is how powerful praise can be. “Praise-warfare” is a spiritual medium through which we transfers our battle to God (2.Chr.20:22).

If you can turn all your bitterness, anger, hatred and complains into praises, acknowledgements and thanksgivings, the reality of Supernatural favour over every of your affair in life will never be farfetched.

Friend, the two surest ways to be enlisted in the school of favour are kingdom mindedness and a praiseful lifestyle. Engage in these spiritual platforms and you will see changes in all your affairs.
