Word Of Faith (How To Have A Lion Share)


Word of faith

Those who have the lion heart are those who can have the lion share. But what if you fail to build a lion heart. How then can you have the lion share?

Building a robust faith might takes some time . It requires commitment and dedication to prayer as well as the baptism of the Holy Spirit – with the evidence of praying in the Holy Ghost by speaking in tongue (Jude. 1:20 & Act. 1).

To have a lion share, It demands responsibility. It demands discipline.

Genuine & Counterfeit Miracle

The truth is that miracle doesn’t just happen. Any miracle that does not leaves you with a responsibility to carry is questionable.

Remember that Aaron’s rod turned serpent, in same vein, the magicians’ rods turned serpents. But the serpent of Aaron swallowed up all the serpents of the magicians. Thus, proven the supremacy of God.

Don’t get it twisted. It’s not all miracles that are from God. There is traditional magic – don’t be deceived. That is why you must test all miracles with the acid test of the word of God. Many fake manifestations are counterfeiting the originals in our time.

Identify With JESUS

Don’t be shy to identify with Jesus. It’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful. Let your light shines across the global village – don’t hide your light under the bushel. Tell it from the roof top to the whole world that you have encountered the Messiah.

Maintain A Heart Of Gratitude

People don’t think straight when they are sad. You will discover that Jesus Christ did not perform any miracle when He cried – funny enough, cry is contagious. If you think that your ceaseless and incessant worries would move God, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Wait a minute, Hannah was fretted, she cried and nothing came to be. But when she: poured out her heart, her lips was moving, attached seal to her demand, went home and sad no more. Then, her request was granted.

Add Faith To Your Effort

Understand this that God is only interested in your faith. Get God moved by a baffling and roof tearing faith. Your faith is your purchasing power in the miraculous market. BIG EXPECTATION IS NOT OUR AMBITION; IT IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT. Move out of the box. Any request that is too BIG for you to ask, don’t expect to have it.

Let there be a casting down of the IMPOSSIBILITY syndrome. There is nothing that your life demands that God can’t deliver (Mat.6:33). Think BIG!

But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (Mat.19:26)

THE BATTLE FIELD OF LIFE


Life is a battlefield. It’s a fighting ground where the enemy has been ordained to loose. Life is primarily a contest between good and evil. Between life and death; success and failure; Health and Sickness; etc.

Our major opposition here on earth is the devil. What is going on in life is that we are fighting with the devil in order to collect our inheritance. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (Jn.10:10).

There are many people who have not been experiencing any progress in their lives since the day they were born. It’s not their fault. There is a force behind it. Until you put up a fight against the enemy (Devil) to collect your birthright from your parents (God) don’t expect a change. Your progress and success in life will be farfetched.

The bible says, “Fight the good fight of faith (1Tim.6:12).”

The devil is not a fairy tale. He is not a fantasy neither a drama. The devil is real. There is a principality in every locality. The devil does not respect your age, colour, position, status or location. Every natural man is prone to an attack from the wicked (Devil).

You better take the shield of faith to return back to the sender every arrow targeted at you by the wicked.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Eph.6:16).”

How can one put up a fight?

There is nothing physical in life’s battle. The battle of life is spiritual which can only be fought and won by engaging in a spiritual warfare.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph.6:12).”

The Spiritual Warfare, “Praise”: Why Praise?

When it comes to fighting battles in life, many people talk about prayer but only few are aware about PRAISE.

For so many years until now, many preachers have been preaching so much about prayer as the spiritual tool for fighting battle but placed little or no premium on praise. Praise has always been preached as minor, as a subsidiary. Friend, may I tell you this, praise is a MAJOR when it comes to the battle of life.

This battle is not yours. Transfer it unto the Lord by getting into praise. Hold your peace and stand still.

” And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Among, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah, and they were smitten (2 Chro.20:22).”

Hold your position in praise. You are a spectator in this battle. You can’t get into a praise warfare and miss out divine intervention. The wall of Jericho came down flat at the instance of praise. Paul and Silas who were locked in the prison brought down God’s presence in the middle of praise.

“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God; and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake. So that the foundation of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed (Acts 16:25).”

The devil who has been holding you in captive inside his dungeon can be defeated like a child play only if you can enter into praise.

Many people, even Christians are inside prisons today. But the last thing they will do is to get into praise.

Understand this, those who work hard and get little results are in the company of those who have not added praise to there efforts. Appreciation equals multiplication (Jer. 30:19)

I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors before. But, I have never seen a praise warrior been frustrated. You can’t praise God with understanding and be stranded in life (Jn.6:6).

Hear this, a praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere. A ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

“Who is like unto thee, O Lord , among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?(Ex.15:11).”

God still works WONDERS in praise.

If you want to seek God, pray. If you want to see God, praise Him. It’s my prayer as you get into praise with understanding you will practically see my God in actions.

The Truth About Success in Life


The truth about life

Every successful person has a painful story, so never give up. A school bell that sounds as a disturbance at 8:am also sounds interesting at 2:pm. Is just a matter of time so don’t envy anyone. Not everyone walking fast has an appointment.

Some have running stomach!

If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn’t mean the rose can make a better stew. Don’t try to compare yourself to others. You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist, were in Noah’s ark. A snail is one of those animals. If God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah’s ark; His door of grace won’t close till you reach your expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up. Remember that Broken crayons still color. Keep on pushing, you never can tell how close you are to your goal.

May we find our place of success .

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s Factors


Life is meaningless outside God’s factors. Life is difficult living outside biblical instructions. There is simplicity in Christ which makes life easier.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through subtilty, so your mind should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2.Cor.11:3.

Life doesn't makes sense outside God's factors

The biblical mysteries are real. They are secrets hiding in the simplicity of the scripture. The secrets are not fabricated, they are raw scriptural truths.

God cannot entrust these secrets to you below the level your fear for His commandments.

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.” Ps.25:14.

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s factors. Until you depend absolutely on God by obeying His commandments with all you’ve got: your strength, time, money, materials, brain and any other resources; breakthroughs are farfetched.

“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” Mark.12:30.

Life is complex, it is the simplicity in Christ that can resolved life complexity.

Life is a battle field, we are fighting with the devil in order to take possession of our inheritances in Christ.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might hath life, and they might have more abundantly.” Jn.10:10.

Only God’s help is secured. A man can promise to employ you today and change his word tomorrow. Helps from men are failure prone. The devil will make you worse or even end you up into destruction. It is only God who doesn’t speaks empty word, He has integrity.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither a son of man that he should repent: hath he said, shall he not do it? Hath he spoken shalt he not make it good.” Num.23:19

Ceased from all fruitless labour and let God help you. Heaven does not help those who help themselves, heaven leaves those who help themselves alone.

Life is ordinary struggle outside God's factors.

No matter where you are around the corner of the world – whether you are brown, white, yellow or black – you need Jesus to help. Everybody needs Jesus.

Life is not a chance but a choice, the ball is in your court, it all depends on how you play it. Buy into the idea of putting God’s word to work, and you will see improvements in all areas of your life.

“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 deeds.” James.1:25.

It works like fire! Serving God this way works like fire! There were people who have served God this way, enjoyed life and go to heaven.

Serving God is not just an escape to heaven. Going to heaven is part of it but not all of it. Serving God guarantees us to enjoy life while we are here and at the same time go to heaven.

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children for the kingdom sakes who shall not receive manifold more in this present time and in the world to come everlasting.” Lk.18:29-30.

 

 

Obedience as a virtue


OBEDIENCE AS A VIRTUE

Today we are going to examine a dynamic topic which is”OBEDIENCE AS A VIRTUE”
TEXT:1Pet1:2

1 Peter 1:2
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

What’s obedience?
Obedience is the practical acceptance of the commandment and the will of God!
Obedience is an act! I mean an act of yielding to God’s leading By following his ways!

In other words obedience is a virtue whereas is a vice!
Apostle Paul asserted in Romans6vs16.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

It’s important to know that to be obedient is to be in agreement with God, to be in agreement with God is to be in the position of the power of Christ. In others words; obedience is a virtue why disobedience is vice.

As we patiently endure and fast through this season is a sign of Obedient to the leading of God.

Kingdom advancement prayer is a practical phenomenon of obedient to God’s leading which is a validity of obedience to God.

In other words disobedience is majorly caused by rebellion and distrust.

God expects obedience (Deuteronomy 11:26-28 ).
To choose Christ is to choose obedience (John 14:15,21 ).
To become disobedient is to sin or rebel against God (I Samuel 15:22,23).

Romans 16:26
But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience

 GOD REWARDS OBEDIENCE!

Over and over again we read in the bible that God blesses and reward obedience! Genesis 22:18
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

God emphatically explain to us that we are going to be blessed if and only if we obey His voice which is an act of obedience.

HOW TO CORRECT THE SIN OF DISOBEDIENCE

Thank God for areas of disobedience you may have discovered.
Once they are identified, they can be removed. This will result in a new joy and greater faith. “And we know that in all things work for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28 ). ”

Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20 ). “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (I Thessalonians 5:18

Confess the disobedience as a sin. Ask God for forgiveness and claim His promise of complete pardon. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9).

If your act of disobedience involves others who are in authority over you, you must rectify the situation with them. The Bible teaches us that we can and should live at peace with ourselves and others.

Disobedience to God and those in authority over you can block the joy, blessings and inner peace which God desires for you.

 Benefits of obedience!

Who could ask for anything clearer or more straightforward than James’ blessed words concerning obedience? They are crystal-clear! “What does it profit, my , if someone says heaàa has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? … Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works [obedience], is dead. … Even the demons believe … But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is useless ? … For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:14-26.

CONCLUSION

Everything that is needed in order to be obedient can be found and obtained in Christ Jesus, so we are without excuse. Let us therefore do our utmost to be obedient in everything! ( 2 Corinthians 10:5-6;

Corinthians 2:9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.

God gives grace, but for what purpose? Precisely for this one reason: obedience! If we imagine anything else, then we are only deceiving ourselves and will come to regret it bitterly one day. Irrespective of what you say or do, irrespective of what stage you are at, know this: the only thing that counts is obedience to the faith.

SHALOM!
REMAIN BLESSED

Wonders of prayer and fasting


 Wonders of prayer and fasting

If there’s a person to pray, there’s a God to answer.
There is never a time that we are ready to call that He isn’t available to answer us. He is merciful enough to grant us answer.

Prayer is the platform that provides nurturing for our seed of greatness to emerge. Since we exist in a word frame world. what you speak is what you see and can speak on the altar of prayer.

We speak on the altar of prayer. We have to speak in prayer, expressing our heart desire. God said as ye say in my ear so shall it be. If he ask, you will receive.

Prayer is an order of responsibility because it confers us with the responsibility to ask and if we refuse to do so nothing comes for us.

A prayer less life is full of danger because, things and life is so unpredictable for such person. Remember He said surely our expectations shall not be cut off.

Someone who doesn’t pray has little or no expectation and and this means no RESULT. it means nothing to show for been a christian.
2nd chronicles 7:14.

Fasting; isaiah 58:6.

Fasting is a spiritual quickening agent that helps to speed up our prayer and also a spiritual exercise. Remember, bodily exercise profits nothing.

Fasting keeps our flesh under the subjection and the leading of the holy spirit making our communication zealous. God knew some certain mountains will remain until we fast and pray that’s why He gave us the order of prayer and fasting to give us dominion over situation of life

Benefits of prayer and fasting

  1. To deliver us from affliction:the wicked ones are envy at our growth and it will stir up jealousy and move to looking out to harm us. As long as your life produce result you have the wicked one on the loose.
    The escape out of it is prayer and fasting.
  2.  It increase our level of communing with the holy spirit, it provide us a means of spiritual fattening. fasting is a food of the spirit.
  3. It helps save us from temptation (Luke 22:40).
    Temptation is everywhere but at the direction of God via our communication on the altar of prayer. We are directed on what to do and what not to do. He promises never to leave us alone.

In conclusion, a lifestyle of prayer and fasting is not just a religious act; it is a platform to acknowledge and commit the holy spirit on our issues.

God is ever faithful to fulfil His own part of the deal but because the devil our enemy is not tired of looking out for the christian, he tries everything to make us engage less the blessedness of prayer and fasting.

My prayer is that as we commit our heart to engage the altar of prayer and fasting in this season. May He hear us and gives us answers speedily.

Holy Ghost Anger


Holy Ghost anger

I’m so sorry to say that I don’t pray for my enemies. An Holy ghost anger against the act of wickedness of the wicked is acceptable through divine intervention. God is angry at the wicked every day because he has killed innocent children, shed the blood of the saints – mostly in our country – if the evil perpetrators do not change God has prepared His instrument of   death to destroy them.

Psalm 7:10-13 KJV
My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. [11] God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. [12] If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. [13] He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

We live in a magnetic field of wickedness. The devil and his cohorts and sometimes human extension with their remote control mishandle the destinies of men and women. Sickness, disease, loss, pain and poverty emanated from this negative pole of wickedness. Therefore, we must put up a fight by engaging in a spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:12 KJV
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places .

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
