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.

How To Live A Life Full Of Ideas


How To Life A Life Full Of Ideas
A Picture Of Ideas From Google

It’s possible to live your life and not be stranded of ideas at any point in time. The capital truth is that there will always be challenges in life. Life is all about facing challenges. Don’t get it twisted, there is no challenged free life. Your wisdom can only be tested in the days of challenges.

It’s scriptural to be challenged; it’s unscriptural to be defeated. The way you handle challenges is the capital proof of your wisdom.

The beauty of life is to know what to do in a critical condition. To come up with a bright ideas when faced with a seemingly impossible circumstance is the hallmark of true son/daughter of God.

Now let’s get down to the real thing.

How Can I Live My Life In Such A Way That I Will Never Be Stranded Of Ideas?

  • Life A Praiseful Life Style – Complains, bitterness, grumblings and hatred will not bring about the solution to any problem but will block your access to revelation. Praise is a mystery that will produce great result when we gained mastery of its virtues. There is divine idea in praise. A praise warrior will always know what to do any day, anytime and anywhere. Jesus was never stranded of ideas at any point in time during His earthly ministry. When He was confronted with what looks seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks and the miraculous erupted.

When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? [6] And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. (John.6:5-6)

But the saddest thing is that many Christians today only praise God on Sunday. No matter how experienced you are as a drunker, you can never be intoxicated today with yesterday’s wine. Praise is like a wine that you must drink always.

What am I saying? My point is that before you can access fresh ideas from heaven, don’t just praise God, but consciously cultivate the habit of a praise life style. That will grant you the access to fresh oil, fresh ideas and revelations.

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

At the mountain side, only a miracle could do it. They needed to feed 5000 uninvited guests. Then Jesus asked Philip, where can we find bread that this may eat? Even though we were told from the scripture that Jesus himself knew what to do. The bible says, He gave thanks and the little they had multiplied. Appreciation equals multiplication, hmmm!

Understand that your case is not the worse. There are people that you have left behind. Your testimony is another person’s prayer request. If you want to be free from depression forever, buy into the idea of living a praiseful life style.

  • Develop A Prayer Life – Did you know that 70% of our prayers are answered by what God shows us? Yes. Prayer is simply giving God back His word. It’s a communication between humanity and divinity. To maintain a consistent prayer life, it demands a responsibility from us. The sad thing is that many so-called born again christian are still prayer lazy. Most Christians leave there homes in the morning without communicating with the father – So disrespectful to the maker, isn’t it? And they will come back home in the night by making the pillow their prayer alter. It doesn’t work that way. Those who serve God causally will become a casualty. Those who think that Christianity is a passive religion are under strong illusion. Christianity is not a religious theory. There is nothing theoretical in Christianity. The scripture has made us understand that all men ought to pray and not to faint (Luke.18:1). Fainting in prayer is synonymous to failing in life. The reason why many people are buffeted by the devil with all kinds of afflictions is because they are too quiet and prayer lazy. They can’t speak with men; they can also not speak with God. The bible says pray without ceasing (1Thes.5:17). You can’t be speaking with God and not be hearing from God. In every communication’s channel, there is always a feedback. Communication is incomplete without feedback from the receiver. If there is man to pray there is a God to answer.

However, It’s possible to live a life full of ideas and creativities. The Spirit in us is capable of teaching us all things (John.14:26). All things here include, your spiritual life, business, career, marriage, finances, ministry, blog, education, skills, vocation and among others. The Holy Spirit is obviously one of the greatest assets to believers. May I tell you this truth from the depth of my being, You can never be stranded in life when you maintain a praiseful life style and develop an habit of prayer life.

Just incase, you have any other valuable inputs on how to Live life without being stranded of ideas, I will be delighted to read and respond to your comments in the comment session.

Thanks for reading and God bless you.

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)

FAITH DIARY (COMMANDMENTS)


In today’s series of FAITH DIARY, I would be sharing with us about “Some Commandments Rooted In The Scripture.” Commandments are injunctions given by divinity to humanity solely for the benefit of humanity.

PRAISE

Praise is a commandment, an order or instruction given by God to humanity. It’s “Let everything that has breath praise the lord” (Psalm.150:6). You don’t need to have “breadbefore you acknowledge God with praises and thanksgiving. If you have ever lost anything God is the reason you have not lost everything.

Get this straight: If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. Praise isn’t something that you do spontaneously or when something gigantic has happened in your life. A Praise lifestyle is pathway into the manifestation of God’s presence (Acts.16:25). It’s God’s presence/aura that makes things happen in life – not you.

PRAYER AND FASTING
Prayer is a commandment. “When ye pray” (Mat.6:6). When signifies “period or time,” that means that there is a time that you must pray. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. The bible says “All Men ought to pray and not to faint.” (Lk.18:1). Mark the word “All Men “- not all pastors that are supposed to live a lifestyle of prayer. 1Thessalonians. 5:17 says, Pray without ceasing.

Fasting is not an advice, neither an admonition. Fasting is a commandment. “When ye fast.” (Mat.6:17). There must be a time that you must fast. Until you are tired of blessings don’t be tired of fasting (Prayer and fasting has no expiry date). There are some certain mountains that will not give way until you fast.

TITHING

Tithing is a commandment. Bring ye all tithe into my house that there may be meat(Mal.3:18). Where your tithe stops is where your blessing stops. Tithe provokes the release of supernatural provisions and also a divine covering (preservation) for your blessings.

In Summary, God is a commander. He basically operates on commandments- which are nonnegotiable. Our responsibility is to play our part of the deal and trust God to deliver His own part (Know that you can’t help God to deliver His part). Understand that God is ever faithful than you and i. He is not a man that should lie (Num.23:19). He has integrity! His integrity will be at stake if you obey Him and don’t have results to show – results are the cardinal proofs of genuine obedience. God does not speaks empty word.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Num.23:19).

STEP by STEP


Oh God you baffled me! You amazed me!! I, the son of nobody became a force to reckon with. Though, I came from a less than rich family background – both of my folks are unlearned – yet you settled all my expensive school fees and made a graduate.

From the deepest place of my despair you brought me into the place my of glory.

Once upon a time, I was a lonely. Then, my world was ruled by the terror of fear. I was scared of everything. How would I make money? How would i pay my school fees? How would I buy my text books? How would pay rent? How would I get good grades? How would I funds my project? Bla! bla!! bla!!! Questions? Questions?? Questions???. To face these questions was very scary, I won’t lie to you.

Then came Your word. By Your word You took me out of my darkest area into illumination. Your word gave me hope that I can make it. That I can make things happen irrespective of my family background and my conditions.

But you did not show me how? You did not show me every of your blueprint. Why? Because you knew that if I know how tall the mountain would be I would be discouraged to climb.

The journey that seemed so far, you led me through step by step as your light shines through my path and every darkness on my way gave way by the incoming of your light.

I’m not afraid. I have confidence in you. I have walked through several miles. I have passed through several junctions. From the day I was born, to the time of my nursery and primary school to the time I was seeking admission and all through those periods of my tertiary institution and now that I am serving my country in a 1year service – which will be completed in the next 1month plus few days. Lord, I say thank you.

Now, good job and marriage are the next steps ahead. Whom to marry is no longer an issue. You have settled that case already.

Oh God, my faith have now become trust. I have no doubt in me again. I understood you now better than before. I know what you want and what you don’t want me to do. I understood want you can and will do.

It was you that brought me to this junction. Take me to the next junction.

Just like the way you have been doing it since my school time, do it also now.

Step by step, the pattern you revealed. Step by step, you will also guide me through the rest of my journey. Brick by brick, you built Rome. Word by word, my blog post was made. Step by step, my life will get to its peak.

Recovered from depression


Recovering from a state of depression

Feeling depressed? Embittered, fretted, worried, despondent; down and  almost completely out? Business failure has become the order of the day. Strategies are not working, customers are not coming. You have done all you could. Frantically, you’re worn out.

It’s not your fault. It’s the quality of your light that is not enough. Darkness struggles not with light. Light and darkness can not coexist. The moment you turn on the light in your room what does darkness does? Darkness will go without thinking about it. Helpless darkness.

Until light emits in a full glow darkness reigns. Knowledge is the key to freedom. The key to dominion.

What do you do when you don’t know what else to do? Get into praise. This battle is not yours. Be still, hold your peace and let God takeover. The wall of Jericho came down flat at the instance of praise. David, the praise warrior, who had the most incessant oppositions in his time was undefeated in battles. The oppositions that confronted the Israelites in second Chronicles chapter 20 helped to kill one another. Halleyuyah!! They were all dead bodies.

This thing just go around looking for who is available. Who is ready to commit suicide. Understanding from the fountain of God’s wisdom will make you to be perpetually grateful that your case is not the worst. Have you ever see a naked man or a man who has no leg? – if you complain that you have no clothes or shoes. If you don’t thank God for the joy of your life today don’t expect Him to organise for another experience that will bring more thanksgiving. If you’re not joyful you will be fretful.

Arise and shine your light is come! Wake up! You sons and daughters of Zion. Shake off your feet from the dust and get into praise.

The race does not belong to the swift. The battle does not belong to the strong. God is the builder and lifter of men. Promotion does not come from the east, west, south or north. It’s God that promotes and demotes people. Without God, life is toiling just like the vicious circle of poverty in economics. Outside God, life is a struggle. Peter struggled all the night and caught nothing. Until he follows Jesus’ instruction, a net breaking harvest is farfetched. Same way many people, even the so-called believers are toiling today. Obedience is the key to business breakthrough. Tireless and unreserved obedience is the gateway to financial break.

Hear this: if you’re not an excited giver you may die poor. The bible says it’s more blessed to give than to receive. Give and it shall be given unto you pressed down good measure. That is the promise of the lord for your life.

My posts are not to impress you but to impact you. God does not speak to impress but to impact. Likewise, things that will impact you will not impress you. Thanks for reading my post.

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.

 

A picture of someone who have got his healing

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”

A graphics of The days of miracle are not gone

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.
