Ways to manifest your healing


A picture illustrating a crippled man that has gotten his healing

 

Sickness can be spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental.
There are instances of healing that happen immediately at the very first moment of prayer, anointing and there are instances of healing that happen only after long period of waiting and many experiences of prayer.

There is God-ward side and man-ward side to every battle and blessings, so while waiting on Jehovah Rapha, the God our healer for full manifestation of healing.

SACRIFICE OF PRAISE AND JOY

Thanksgiving is a vital key to experiencing the miraculous, we must not reserve for when miracle comes to full fruition.

It is in the Holy atmosphere of praise and worship that healing and miracle begin to manifest.

The sacrifice of Joy is the most difficult to offer when afflicted or troubled within and out.

Yet Nehemiah 8:10 says the Joy of the Lord is our strength.

Strength is emotional toughness and resistance, it is defensive ability.

Dancing, singing melodies, reciting psalms, smiling, laughing rejoicing in what the Lord says about us.

BE REALISTIC IN EXPECTATIONS

we need to overcome the realms of our 5 senses and human reasoning.

Our words have power to create or destroy.

Proverb 18vs 21 says there are power of life and death in the tongue

“I can’t handle this anymore, then the situation can be out of control”

“it is hurting more, as difficult as it may sound, our words control our lives

Mark 10vs 50 reveals the blind Bartimaeus threw aside his garment and rose and came to Jesus. The garment to this blind man was his valuable asset, being his status identification, his means of collecting alms, may be his source of shelter and warmth.

To us it can be no longer rely on whatever we had as any other hope of survival.

Casting away all doubt, no thinking otherwise.

Casting away all fear and connection of discouragement.

prayer is successful only when it is based on God’s word.”The supernatural therapy to supernatural healing is the word of God”

UNDERSTAND AND KEEP CONFESSING THE WORD OF GOD

Possess the promises of healing in Christ Jesus Ipeter2:24, Isaiah 53:4.

To keep confessing the word of God help curse the root cause of the problems and it releases Jesus into the situations.

Sometimes, healing seems to be delayed. In Exodus 5:22-23, Moses spoke the word of God(let my people go and serve me) to Pharaoh but he refused.
God gave Moses the strength to continue confronting Pharaoh with the word of God till his final destruction.
2Chronicle 7:14 says, if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray  and seek my face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.

There is need to examine life from any area of sin that has not being dealt with, repent, make restitutions if need be. It causes to falter in confidence before God and making request known, it also gives Satan ground to condemn and judge.

CHOOSE TO PERSEVERE

(waiting, hoping and trusting God)

God also uses our circumstances to refine and build our characters
Delay in manifestation sometimes means to grow us in faith and patience making us spiritually fit.

The mystery of honouring God


God honours those who honours Him

God honours those who honours Him. The principle of this kingdom is the principle of input and output, seed time and harvest time. Everyone gets what they sow.

“Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” – 1 Samuel 2:30

God is telling us this evening that “give me honour and I will honour you back in return”, despise me and I will neglect you. Sow the seed of honour into the kingdom and you shall reap honour. Can you harvest a maize without planting a corn? That’s not possible.

“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. [6] He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” – Psalm 126:5-6

How can I honour God in my daily living?

Someone might ask how can he/she honours God as a lifestyle?

1). Praise

Praise is a sure way to honour God. You’re only qualified to honour God when your breath is in place.

“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord . Praise ye the Lord” – Psalm 150:6

In everything, not for every thing, praise the lord.

There are some companies of people that would not ask before they receive, these are people in the companies thanks givers. Any time you acknowledge God, He expands you.

“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [6] Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. – Psalm. 67:5-6

It’s a matter of perspective, out of paralytic perspective. Many – though born-again Christian – have been bittered with God because they have made themselves prayer projects by placing all kinds of demands on God, switching from one prayer house to the other. It’s not as if i’m against asking but it’s so disgusting the way many Christians have expanded their problems, dishonored themselves all in the name of demands. Praise kills the prayer projects mentality.

Praise unleashes divine ideas. You can live a praise lifestyle and be stranded of ideas. When Jesus was here He always knew what yo to do.

“And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.” – Jn.6:6

When they needed to feed 5000 people, He gave thanks. Whenever there were confronted with seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks, and the miraculous follows.

Praise lifestyle enhances fresh oil. There are many believers, even pastors, operating with stale oil. Fresh oil connotes fresh revelation. You can’t make things happen in life without revelation. Praise is one of the spiritual activities that engender the release of fresh oil. Understand this, manifestation is a product of revelation.

“But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” – Psalm. 92:10

2). Obedience

Obedience is the hallmark of honouring God. Anytime you obey God, you set your foot on a pedestal of enthronement/honour.

If Jesus who was given the Holy Spirit beyond measure could not move an ant other than to honour His father then you and I have no choice than to follow the same principle.

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] 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;” – Philippians 2:6-10 

Our journey to honour in life begins with obedience. Where your obedience stops is where your honour stops. Dedication equals decoration. Every commandment of God is meant for our profiting.

God has not commanded in order to grieve us, He has commanded us in order to expand us. God has not commanded us in order to punish us, He has commanded us in order to polish us.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” – 1Jn. 5:3

The word of God is 75% instructions and 25% doctrines.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” – 2 Timothy 3:16

Honour God by being responsible. You better start carrying responsibility until it’s too late. It’s never too late. You will die as a liability until you start taking responsibility. Repent of all spiritual irresponsibility.

Be financially responsible by honouring God with your thite and offerings.

“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” – Deu.8:18

Be spiritually responsible by honouring God with Kingdom advancement prayer and soul winning endeavours.

3). Believe – lastly, honour God with you faith. You can’t move God without faith.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” – Heb.11:6

Honour God with your thoughts. God thinks, and He thinks positively.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” – Jer.29:11

You are God’s offsprings – God’s sons and daughters. According to the law of the universe, every living thing duplicate itself into its offspring, a cow can’t give birth to a goat, a mango tree can’t produce a cashew fruit. It follows, the son of God is a god.

“I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” – PS. 82:6

You too should think like a true son and daughter of your father.

Speak in line with what you believe. You are what you say.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Prov.18:21

In conclusion, don’t just be thrilled by this teaching, align your life according to its prescriptions, and your place of honour can never be farfetched.

How to Praise God


How to praise God

How to praise God” is written by Adeola Adedoyin

We were able to discover in our last teaching the value in praise and the wonders in praise.

It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord(psalms 92:1) one of the wonders of praise is that it ushers you into the presence of the lord(psalm 100:4). in the presence of God, the there is fullness of joy(psalm16:11). It is impossible to be in the presence of God and remain the same.

I will discuss tonight three ways to praise God.

The first way to praise the Lord is by Singing and Dancing: Singing and dancing by a true child of God reflects the joy bubbling in one’s heart. No one can be truly happy and successfully hide it. It is written that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Singing and dancing can be a reflection on the mighty work of God that we have seen and heard. This attitude is not limited in scope. People of all age groups are to praise God. (Matt21:9; Hosea 2:15).

When we sing and dance in the presence of God like a baby without mindful of who is watching us, this make God to be delighted in us. And when father is delighted in His child, He shower blessing on such child.

King David knew this key, whenever he is praising God, he will sing and dance like a baby. This attitude make God to be happy and make God to call king David the man of his soul.

When we’re joyful our praise will go to our God and He will shower His blessing on us.

The second way of praising God is by Clapping And Instruments of music:

The clapping of hands and the use of instruments of music are other way a Christian can express his or her appreciation to God. Psalm41:1 says, oh clap your hand all ye people.
When it is done orderly and decently, it is pleasing unto God.

We can use various instruments of music like trimbrel, volin, organ, piano, and drum to praise God (psalm150:1-6). This attitude pleases God and it makes Him to be happy with and shower His blessings on us.

The last third way of praising God is Praising God in the Holy spirit: We re enjoined to redeem the time because the days are full of evil (Eph5:14-19).

A way of doing this is to make a melody in our heart and sing spiritual songs, this preventing the tongue from going astray. We can hand over the tongue to the Holy spirit to sing spiritual songs to the lord.

In conclusion we are enjoined to be the doer of the word not the hearer only.

Today’s teaching is a practical one which should be put into practice now and always. Sing unto the lord, dance unto him, clap your hand, use musical instruments to praise your maker. All these pleasing Him and there is a great reward for doing this.

Praise and its wonders


Praise and its wonders

A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; and a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

Acts 16:25-26 KJV
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. [26] And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

What does it requires to praise God? The answer is “breath.” It’s let everything that has breathpraise the lord – not “bread” – as long as you are still breathing you owe God praise.

Psalm 150:6 KJV
“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord . Praise ye the Lord.”

In everything (not for everything) praise the lord – 1.Thes.5:18

Praise is where God live. It’s God’s dwelling place. It’s His habitation.

Psalm 22:3 KJV
“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”

If you want to seek God, pray. If you want to see God, praise Him.

Praise is not occasional/spontaneous acknowledgment of good deeds. It doesn’t leaves with much options, praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6).

Get this straight: if you wait for something spectacular to happen before you praise God, you will wait forever.

However, If you must enjoy the best of God obedience is mandatory (Deu.28:1-3).

There is divine ideas in praise. You can’t praise God and be stranded of ideas in life. It’s my prayer you won’t get to a point where you will no longer know what to do again. Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry was never stranded of what to do.

John 6:6 KJV
“And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.”

Anytime that He was confronted with seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks and the supernatural flows.

Praise expands people – appreciation equals multiplication. You can’t praise God and be small.

Psalm 67:6 KJV
“Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

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.”

Praise provokes the release of God’s presence. There is no mortal man that can cause things to happen on His own. Trying to lift your problem without the Supernatural(God) is like trying lift a lorry without a jack. It’s God’s presence that makes things happen. God is the supernatural. Praise engenders the release of the supernatural. The supernatural is the backbone of life( every natural happening has it’s supernatural antecedent).

Praise warfare is the platform where all our battles are transfered unto God. Praise warriors become spectators in their own fights.

2 Chronicles 20:22 KJV
“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”

 2 Chronicles 20:23 KJV
“For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them : and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.”

It’s my prayer as you put on the garment of praise every opposition that is confronting you will help to kill one another in the name of Jesus.

King David faced the most incessant oppositions during his time but he overcame them all because he was an addicted praise warrior.

Hear this: Praise connects humanity with divinity.

In conclusion, God does not owe any natural man for anything, you owe Him obedience to the injunction of praise.
I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors, but I have never seen a frustrated praise warrior. Things are bad because you are sad; you are not sad because things are bad. Friend, Only If you can turn all your bitterness, despondencies, grumblings, and hatreds into praise you will be setting you foot on a pedestal of enthronement and multiplication, favour, ideas, etc can never be farfetched.

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

Continues…

How can I start following and obeying God’s commands?

You are who or  what you follow and who or what you follow determines who or what follows you.

1). Let kingdom advancement prayer become a part and parcel of your life. Let it become an habit to intercede or stand in gap for others who are lost and unsaved to be convicted and converted into Christ.

We saw in book of Luke.2:34 that prayer is a platform of service which is available for a lifetime. Are you not happy to hear that, Hannah at the age of 84 served God in the temple by praying kingdom advancement prayer day and night.

Luke 2:37 KJV
“And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.”

Kingdom advancement prayer is a commandment. The word “when” in Mat.6:6 indicates that there is period that you must pray. And in Mat.6:9, after thanksgiving, the next item of priority is the God’s kingdom before asking for bread and butter and in verse 33, we are ordered to seek first the God’s kingdom if we must enjoy all kinds of seditions.

The truth is that most of our prayers are self-centered in nature. Only if we can turn all our demands into kingdom oriented prayers the supernatural grace will be flowing  cheaply.

2). Engage in soul winning – Soul winning is not a gift neither a talent. Today, many Christians mostly say that they don’t have the gift of soul winning, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Soul winning is a God giving mandate for every believer which facilitates answered prayers and divine favour.

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.”

Other scriptural reference: JER. 1:5

3). Subscribe Into the covenant platform of seed time and harvest time. The natural man’s law States that “A bird at hand is worth more than two in the bush” this is a discounting principle on the ground of facts and assumptions.

On the contrary, the supernatural law states that “It’s more blessed to give than to receiving” Until you become an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activities.

Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Other scriptural reference : PS.126:5-6

4). Consciously cultivate the attitude of praise – Praise is commandment, let everything that has breath praise the lord (PS.150:6). It’s where God lives, God inhabits the praise of Israel. If you want to seek God pray, if you want to see God praise Him (PS.22:3).

Don’t wait until something spectacular happen before you put on the garment of praise. Appreciation equals multiplication. The reason may are few and small in life is because they have been disobeying the commandment of praise.

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.”

Psalm 67:5-6 KJV
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [6] Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

5). Let your engagement be mixed with faith – As you are putting all the steps listed above into work also let it be mixed with faith – Faith is simply seeing the invincible and believing the impossible. Without faith it’s impossible to please God (Heb.11:6).

Listen to this: Let both what you think and say agree with each other. This the best principle of faith. You are what you think (Prov.22:3) and it’s what you can boldly declare with your mouth that God will confirmed.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” – Prov.18:23

 

 

Antidotes for anger


Antidotes for anger

Renew your mind – ever since the fell of the fallen angel (the devil or wicked one) every imagination of men have been towards evil continuously (Gen.6:5). This is why you must reprogram yourself by thinking positively. You’re what you think and anger has a strong connection with your thought. Your mind is the devil’s primary object of attack.

Listen to this: before you can be liberated from the world of hatred, emptiness, bitterness, malice and anger; let there first be a casting down of all mind debris. Your mind can either make you or break you.

If God who is the creator of the universe and all which are in it – including you off course – thinks and thinks positively, then you and I have no choice than to follow the same principle.

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings (Phil.2:14) – wouldn’t it make a news if I’m caught in a brawl? While murmurings will mess up your situation, complains will complicate your matters. It’s uncommon this day to hear that “situations in the country are bad” “we are feeling the heat.” The truth is that there is nobody who is not feeling the heat but the way we manage ourselves is different from each other. Those who grumbled this way are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

The Antidotes of Praises and Thanksgiving – We thank God for what He has done, we praise Him for what He will do and we worship Him for who He is. Those who struggle more and had little or no result are in the company of those who have not added praise to their efforts. If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. It leaves you with no option as praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6). Until you maintain a constant praise lifestyle, the spirit of destructive anger remains your neighbour. Only if you can turn all your bitterness into praises and thanksgiving your life will be experiencing all kinds of additions and multiplications on every side (Jer.30:19).

 

 

My Christmas’ post


My Christmas' post

Merry Christmas and happy New Year in advance to you, my dear readers. Happy boxing day! I wish you all the best in this festive period. Thank you for supporting this blog all year round. Thanks for the likes and comments. Thank you for taking your time to stop by and read. God bless you all.

Onto the post…

This is a season of celebration and  thanksgiving. Seize this moments to key into the commandment of praise. Sit down, flash back and reflect on what God has done in your life. Use this opportunity to acknowledge God for the gift of blessings and protections that he has rained into your life and family since the year began.

Be sensitive of the devil devices and craftiness. This isn’t the time to complain, murmur neither grumble. All those that grumbled in the wilderness were consumed by the destroyers (1.cor.10:10). The scripture says that you should do all things without murmuring and disputing (Phil.2:14).

Trust me, if you can turn all your bitterness into celebration; the miraculous would be flowing more in all spheres of life. You’re not sad because things are bad; things are bad because you’re sad. To praise in the midst of hopeless circumstance is a sign of strong faith (Acts.16:25-26)

Once again, this is not the time to be fretted and worried. If you think that your so much worries will move God, this is another lie from the pit of hell.

Hannah was bittered and worried. Despondency and weariness held grip on her. But until  she went home rejoicing, her answer was not in view.

Year TWENTY NINETEEN is the year to start and remain (in case you’ve started) committed to God’s will. Will power, new year resolution and character won’t work.

Listen to this: There is a spirit of disobedience behind every act of disobedience. The spirit of disobedience is the one behind drinking, fornication, adultery, smoking, lieing, backbiting, corruption, etc

Ephesians 2:2 KJV
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

New year resolution will not work! You need the baptism of the spirit of obedience to destroy the spirit of disobedience at work.

Ezekiel 36:27 KJV
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them .

Good news: the spirit of obedience is from above while the spirit of disobedience is from beneath and He that come from above is above all (John.3:31)
