How To Make Things Happen In 2020


God has sent me to you, to tell you that where you’re is smaller than where He is taking you to.

Things aren’t going to be like this forever. Don’t give up! Everything that has beginning also has an end (Prov.23:18), there is always a light in the end of the tunnel (Hab.2:3).

Weeping isn’t permitted to go beyond a night. Has your problem lasted more than a night? If yes, that means your problem is long overdue for a solution.

It’s your attitude that determines your altitude. Your attitude towards your situation will always bail you out anyday.

Understand that there is always an end to everything. Sadly, many people have given up before the arrival of their breakthroughs. Don’t let this be you. I’m charging you to press on.

For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil; to give you an expected end. (Jer.29:11).

God builds slowly but strong. Satan builds quickly but fragile. During your waiting periods, character is built. Without a solid character you can’t sustain your breakthrough when it comes. You need to build a thick skin to secure your breakthrough or else it won’t last.

How To Provoke The Manifestation Of Your Breakthrough In 2020

Don’t wait for things to happen. Make them happen or they will never happen. Here are the things you can do to provoke the release of your breakthrough in 2020:

(1).Serve The Lord

Since the days of patriarchal until now, everyone that reigned had once served. The platform of service is the gateway to your change of story.

David was serving – keeping his father’s flocks – when he was called to the throne. Joseph served in Portiphar’s house before he became the prime minister. Jesus served by obeying His father instructions to the point of enthronement. What about Caleb who served to the end and full. You will die as a liability if you don’t take responsibility.

Stewardship is a covenant gateway to supernatural enthronement.

WHAT ARE THE PLATFORMS OF STEWARDSHIP?

(a). Prayer Stewardship

Prayer provides the software for a lifetime service. In Luke.2:37, we saw Hannah, at the age of 84, serving God with prayer and fasting in the temple day and night.

And she was a widow of about fourscore and served God with fastings and prayers night and day. (Luke.2:37)

You can’t travail in prayer and not prevail in life. Prayer means more that an avenue to place some burdensome demands on God. It’s a platform for spiritual stewardship the yield the most profitable returns.

You can engage in these prayers daily:

  • Pray for the advancement of God’s kingdom – (Mat.6:9/33)
  • Pray for souls to be saved from the dungeon of the wicked – (John.15:16)
  • Pray for the new converts to be established in faith and church
  • Pray for the nation(s)
  • Pray for the safety your pastors and his families
  • Pray for the increase of God’s word
  • Pray for the flow of more spiritual contents on this blog
  • Pray for the destruction of all satanic manipulations against the conviction and conversion of the unsaved.
  • For for the release of God’s wisdom and boldness for everyone on the go for Christ.
  • Pray for the release of reaper angel to reap thoroughly with his sharp sickle all souls that ordained for eternal life
  • Pray for your family, friends and neighbours to be blessed.
  • Pray for your church members to obey God’s instructions to the end.

Anytime you prayed for someone, the prayer answers back to you. See your prayer as a spiritual seed that will bring forth its returns in due season.

Kingdom focused prayer will cause what others are running after to be running after you. God will add to you the things that others are dying to get.

(b). Soul Winning Stewardship

Soul winning is another type of spiritual stewardship that yield the greatest returns. Soul winning isn’t talent neither a gift. It’s a mandate for every believer.

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: whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it to you. (John.15:16)

God sent Jesus to be great, so also, Jesus sent you to be great – through the platform of soul winning (Luke.1:32/John.20:21). Your job is to compel them to come by all means.

(c). Financial Stewardship

Here is another great platform for anyone who is interested in financial prosperity. You can engage in this platform by using your money to serve God. God’s primary interest is to save the lost. You might have noticed this in “the lords prayer” “….thy kingdom come… (Mat.6:9/33).” The kingdom of God was placed with high premium before the consideration of necessities. The kingdom is God’s utmost interest. Anything that touches a soul hunter touches God.

You can give out your money to ministries for the purpose of:

  • Printing evangelical materials
  • Buying buses for bringing people to church (Or giving out your vehicle for evangelism purpose)
  • Building a synagogue or completing some uncompleted churches in your locality.
  • Paying your tithe and offering on a constant basis.
  • Helping the poor and needy
  • Promoting blogs that propagate the gospel

For the records, we are not in need in our blogging ministries (if God needs help you’re the least person He will consult). Any seed you see as a donation is a waste. Your seed is what God use to meet your need – that is the spiritual implication if your seed.

Get this straight: there is no prayer and fasting for prosperity. Financial prosperity answers to the law of seed and harvest time – giving and receiving. If you’re not an excited giver you’ll die poor.

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease (Gen.8:22)

(d). In-Service

This is another great opportunity to serve God by serving in His vineyard. You can join one or many service units in your local church. Here are some active service units that you can join:

  • Ushering unit
  • Protocol unit
  • Sanctuary keepers unit
  • Security unit
  • Choir unit
  • Media unit

And many more units depending on the structure of your local church.

It baffles me sometimes the way many still believe that Christianity is a passive religion. Those who think so are under strong illusion and that explain their predicaments.

Understand this, every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God is not a user of men, you’re not working for God but with Him.

Carry a reward mentality as your plug into stewardship (Rev.22:12)

Be expectant and let your engagement be mixed with faith. Here are some of the benefits you should expect as you serve God this year:

  • Freedom from sickness (Ex.23:25)
  • Financial prosperity (Job.36:11)
  • Long life (Ex.23:26)
  • Fruitfulness (Ex.23:26)
  • Supernatural blessings (Deu.28:1-3)
  • Business breakthrough (PSM.92:10)
  • Higher dimension of spiritual authority (Eph.1:21)
  • Divine health and wholeness (Mat.8:17)
  • Marital settlement (PSM.68:6)
  • Miracle job (Is.3:10)
  • Divine strength (PSM.84:7)

Final Thoughts

Brethren, be God greedy. When you are God greedy, you will desire everything that serving God offers and that will make obedience to His instructions to become a thing of delight to you. God has not called you to meditate on your problems but to meditate on His words and your success will follow (Jos.1:8).

A humble heart – humility

(2). Maintain a closed proximity with God through the altar of prayer – the highest display of arrogance is to be prayer (spiritual) irresponsible. A prayer house is a power house. The entire world believe there is no a mountain that a prayer can’t made plain.

Matthew 17:20 KJV
“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
“Pray without ceasing.”

Luke 18:1 KJV
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”

(3). Maintain a praise lifestyle : Praise is one of the surest platforms where the supernatural grace flows. If you are not joyful you will be fretful. For instance, King David who faced the most incessant oppositions during his reign but had victory over them all as a result of his praise lifestyle. He danced shamelessly to king; even with his Royal apparel – breaking all royal protocols.

It’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful. As you put on the garment of praise and dance before the king irrespective of your age, class, position or  tiltle; you are riding majestically into the thrown of favour. No battle of life will overcome you. Amen.

(4) You need humility because it secures your access to divine provisions. Wait a minute, Lion isn’t the greatest animal; sheep is the greatest animal. Reason? The scripture says that the lion lacks and suffers hunger but the sheep’s welfares are catered for.

Psalm 34:10 KJV
“The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing .”

Matthew 6:6 KJV
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

Sheep will always obey his master. Obedience is the master key to all the blessings in this kingdom.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3 KJV
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”

How can I be humbled?

(1). Obey God’s commandments : Anything can fail; obedience to scriptural instructions can never fail. God is a commander. God operates basically on commandments and attached rewards for obeying them.

You as a partner with God; play your part of the deal and let God play His part.

James 1:22 KJV
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. You cannot be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow.

Philippians 2:7-11 KJV
“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Jesus Christ operated on this principle during His earthly ministry and He was enthroned.

A humble heart – Humility


A humble heart

Merriam Webster defines humility as the freedom from pride or arrogance: the quality or state of being humble.

Humility is the quality or state of being unassuming in the estimation of one’s ability. Synonyms: Lack of vanity, lack of pretension, self-consciousness, timidity, meekness.

Why do I need humility?

(1). Humility is the hallmark of wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2 KJV
“When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.”

Wisdom is the trademark of an end time believer.

Isaiah 33:6 KJV
“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”

Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it. For instance, God has given us the mandates to pray on behalf of the lost and reach out to them on the harvest field.

Matthew 6:6 KJV
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

John 15:16 KJV
“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.”

It’s foolishness to neglect these responsibilities since we understood that these platforms of service are our bail out in hard times.

(2). You need humility because God does not lift the proud. He demotes the proud while lift the humble. God is the lifter and builder of man. Nothing is in us but grace and if we don’t want our grace to turned disgrace we must remain loyal and humble to His instructions and prescriptions (Prov.11:2).

(3) You need humility because the level if your greatness in life cannot supersede the level of your meekness. The meekest Moses was the greatest Moses.

Numbers 12:3 KJV
(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

Exodus 11:3 KJV
And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.
