The Reason Things Are Not Working


The reason why things are not working

If things are not working, it is a sign of lack of love. Love is not mystical, love is simply the combination of what you receive, believe and obey. Obedient to scriptural instructions is the cardinal proof of love. It is our passion for the things of the kingdom that make things happen in life. If the things of God does not move you, don’t expect things to work.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that love me: and the that loveth me shall be loved of my father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Jn.14:21

The hotter our obedience, the hotter our love level and the hotter will become in life. The more our passion for lost souls, the more things get better.

Love has the potency to make all things to work for good: spiritual life, career, business, academics, family, work, finances, health, etc. All things work together for good to them that love God.

“And we know that all things together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” ROM.8:28.

Therefore, if things are not working, check yourself. It might be that you have be disobeying instructions. Christianity without result is a sign of spiritual irresponsibility. You can’t be doing it and not be seeing its manifestation in all areas of your life. This is divine arrangement.

“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 deeds.” JMS.1:25

Love will not only make all things to work together for good, love will also announce you to your world. Love will make a star of any believer.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1.Cor.2:9

Turning many to righteousness will make you a celebrity. Every genuine soul hunter is a public figure.

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness are stars forever and ever.” Dan.12:3

Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

Partnership is the gateway to all round settlements. Wrong mentality about partnership will reduce engagement. Understand this: we are not working for God; we are working with God. God does not use people; He blesses people. He is not a taskmaster; He is a paymaster.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Those who are partnering with God are not far from all round settlement in all areas of life.”

In partnership, every shareholder is entitled to a dividend. So also you can’t partner with God and miss out His dividend.

Isaiah 45:19 KJV
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

We are not working for God we are working with God

 How can I partner with God?

Go for His mandates – The 2 mandates of God for every Christian are prayer and soul winning (lk.18:1, Jn.15:16, Jer.1:5). “All men,” not all pastors, ought to pray and not to faint. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. Prayer is a commandment. “Pray without ceasing.”(1Thes.5:17). Fainting in prayer equals failing in life. Prayer does not only change things; prayer changes people.

Luke 9:29 KJV
“And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.”

Whatever you pray for others answers back to you. It is human intercession that provokes the release of divine intervention. Standing in the gap for others (“the lost” and nations) is the surest pathway to a life of  fulfillment.

 Matthew 6:9-10, 33 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Hannah at 84 years old, prayed kingdom advancement prayer (lk.2:37). Daniel prayed kingdom advancement prayer to a point that the king had no choice than to call him Belteshazzar ( a god’s name).

Daniel 4:18 KJV
“This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.”

Fear GodWe make our marks in life by fearing God. How can I fear God? By obeying scriptural injunctions (Jn.14:21)

Our journey to greatness in life begins with the fear of God. We live in a kingdom of choices and not chances. The ball is in our courts. Daniel made a choice to be different (Dan.1:8) you too choose to be different.

Daniel 1:8 KJV
“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
It’s common saying that “If you can’t beat them join them” this statement is a satanic statement. You can’t beat them by joining them, or else you will remain under them. Choose to be different.

Joseph flee fornication when he knew that his destiny will be tied down.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it. It pays to live right. Its never too late to turn. Live ready it might be too late to get ready.

Our journey to greatness begins with Godliness

Love God: The hotter your love for Christ the hotter you become in life. Carry a heart for Christ. Those who have the injunctions of God and obey them are the ones who love God.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

What is love? Love is simply the word that you receive, believe and obey.

Passion is the key word here. Love built this blog. Love provokes the release of supernatural manifestations in all spheres of life.

Love is making the kingdom of God your number 1 interest in life.

Get this straight: If the things of God does not move you, don’t expect the move of God to your direction. God is ever committed to the welfares of those who are committed to His interests.

Until you run after the kingdom agenda, supernatural additions is out of view.

 1 Kings 17:13 KJV
“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.”

 Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Your years of toiling is over. Our God is a God of additions. Serving God will not reduce you, serving God will increase you. Our God is a God of multiplication.

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.”

Things that others are running g after will be running after you when you plug into the frequency of love by hunting after souls both on the prayer alter and by reaching out to the lost through envagelism.

 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

The interpretation of this scripture is that some people are praying for the lost to be saved while others are on the field compelling them into the kingdom. Both category of labourers have their rewards. You can do both as many believers are doing today.

I decrees – your settlement in every aspect of your life has finally come. God will settle you spiritually, physically, financially, and academically; in your health, career, job, business and marriage in the name of Jesus. No body here will remain unsettled in the name of Jesus.

The love of the lord – by Tolu


The love of the lord

I love God easy to say but hard to understand. Many people can say it with their mouths that they love God. But most people are only saying it with their mouth their love for God isn’t genuine.

And also we should understand that when you genuinely love God then you can love everyone around you without discrimination.

John3 vrs 16 makes us understand how God love us so much that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

I will be discussing 3things  which is (1) love yet lacking life (2) living through his love (3) living the Lord throughout our lives.

Love yet lacking eternal life …mark 10 vrs 17,21 22 1st Timothy chapter2 vrs3,4&5, the Bible reveals two aspects of God will for human kind with regard to Salvation, His perfect will which says that he wants everyone to be saved.

 

Love is the combination of the word that we receive, believe and obey

living through love… 1st John 4vrs6 genesis 1 vrs28 then God blessed them and God said to them be fruitful and multiply fill the heart and subdue it have dominion over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and Over everything that moves on the heart. U can see so much blessings in this that he filled us with because of love.

Let’s take for example when there is no love between two parties, to be useful for each other will be difficult, the first person can’t be blessed by the other; they won’t be able to help each other in any way.

And we also know that when one person loves the other even if who they love don’t love them back they will still be doing things in that person favour just because of love.

That’s why there is a saying that love conquers all. When there is love to live won’t be difficult.

john6 vrs 47…Rev 1vrs5 makes us understand what God did for us to convince us how much love he have for mankind and that he gave us so much opportunity , grace and life because He loves us He wants us to also love everyone the same way.

This will take me to the last one which is loving the Lord throughout our lives 1stjohn 4vrs19 and john13vrs1 .

It was before the passover feast Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave the world, and go to His father having love His own who are in the world, He now showed them the full extent of his love.

God is a great example for us to follow and imitate because He shows us what true love really is He loves us with heart, soul and all that He has. Do we love him back?

Do we love him back? well I asked if we actually love him back because most people don’t, this is why it is hard to love human being like us because if you can’t love God who obviously loves you it will be difficult to love people around you, people you claim to be your family, friends and church members, in your area, community, country etc.

The love of the lord (by Funmi)


The love of the lord

I will like to start with the expression from the knowledge that Love is a fruit of the Spirit of God.

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Also, from 1Corinthian 12:3NIV:Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
So does Galatian 5:22 reveals Love as the fruit of the holy Spirit of God.

How much the Love of God in us is a reflection of the Spirit of God at work in us.

Can there be a Love which does not make demands on its objects?

The commandment of God of God is summarize as Love the Lord your God with all heart & love your neighbor as yourself.

How then can we fulfil the demand of the Love of God?
It has been summarized in the biblical text given above.

The understanding of the Love of God being the key to overflowing blessings taught in previous lessons should create a kind hunger & thirst of the Spirit of God that will truly help fulfil the demands of genuine Love of God in us.

Let’s also discuss on what retract the Love of God in a man….

Roman 8:38-39 says What can separate us from the Love of God?
This is a question everyone should ask him/herself

KJV:For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

KJV:Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

All these are working together to separate us from the Love of God our father but we must by the knowledge of the revelation of the word of God prevail.

Love: the master key to overflowing blessings


Love: the master key to overflowing blessings

What are the benefits of love?

 

Love makes men stars

Your rise as giant in life is rooted in love. Every genuine lover of God is a star. Love is what it takes for a nonentity to become a celebrity. Peter and others were uneducated but they were announced.

Acts 4:13 KJV
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”

It’s not about carrying title, certificate position, or age notwithstanding. Peter preached and three thousands souls were turned at the spot. You see, it requires love to be given a voice in your world.

Acts 2:41 KJV
“Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”

There are so many great talents unheard in the grave. Let God announced you by keying yourself into the demands of the sacrifice of love

Daniel 12:3 KJV
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”

 Exploits

Every authentic believer(lover of Christ) is a record breaker, ground breaker and pathfinder. Those who serve God genuinely are international phenomena, they are global figures.

Daniel 11:32 KJV
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

These are the mysteries of the Kingdom that works. Don’t be left out. Everyone is moving. It will be better that you move with the cloud.

Benefits of being kingdom minded

 

Being kingdom minded engenders divine favour and open rewards. What others are running after will be running after you. Traffics can be redirected for your sake

1 Kings 17:13-16 KJV
“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. [14] For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth. [15] And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. [16] And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord , which he spake by Elijah.”

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

If God’s Kingdom does not holds any attraction to you don’t expect God to commit Himself to your welfares.

 

How can I love God?

 

Obey God’s commands

 

God is a commander. He primarily operates on commandments which are nonnegotiable. His commandments are attached together with blessings and benefits. Obedience to God’s injunctions is the capital evidence of love.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

Sometimes, God’s injunctions or instructions might look very stupid, it might look too simple. But listen, that is the answer to your problems.

One thing I would also like us to know is that there is no fear in love. Anxiety is the cardinal evidence of doubt. U can’t love your spouse and be afraid of him/her.

1 John 4:18 KJV
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

Love: the master key to overflowing blessings

Love is a combination of the word that we receive, believe and obey.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

Every genuine love requires a sacrifice. The alter of sacrifice is the alter of sworn blessings. It requires a sacrificial approach to move God.

Genesis 8:20-22 KJV
“And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord ; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. [21] And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. [22] While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

How can I love God?

Be kingdom minded

Being kingdom minded means allowing the interest of God’s kingdom be at the center of your life. By making the God’s kingdom your priority in life. This is where the supernatural grace flows. Kingdom mindedness is the cardinal mark of love.

Matthew 6:9-10 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

In the lord’s prayer after Thanksgiving, the next item is the kingdom of God before asking for daily bread. That shows your God’s heart beats for His Kingdom.

Most of the things we called prayers are noise. Most of our prayers are self-centered. If you can change the focus of your prayer towards the progress of God’s kingdom, you will see blessings overflowing in all spheres of life naturally.

Engaging on the prayer alter on behalf of the unsaved to be saved – I call it ‘prayergelism’-  is part of being kingdom minded. Embarking on outreaches, evangelism are part of being kingdom minded. You don’t have to struggle to get things done in life. Just  understand the key that unlocks the supernatural.

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
