Life’s circumstances can pull you in all directions; and produce all sorts of feelings, but weep no more for Christ has overcome.
The Lord Jesus came to put an end to tears of sorrow and regret. He suffered excruciating pain, died a shameful death on the cross as full penalty for your sins, and rose again to give you a victorious life. The Bible says in Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. The Lord Jesus knows what you are going through; and He has given you, His word and spirit to help you come through victoriously. So no matter what you are going through today, cheer up, weep no more for your victory is sure. When the Lord Jesus said, it is finished, just before He gave up the ghost at the Cross of Calvary, He was saying in essence weep no more; your pains are over. He has turned your supposed mourning into great joy. Weeping could be very detrimental to any body that indulged in it. Apart from being a deviant behaviour against a divine command, it blurs your vision and reasoning. Also, weeping, when God has spoken against it, is an indirect way of protesting against God’s word. It is equal to murmuring which is also rebellious. the Bible says in John 20 vs 15, that weeping blurred Mary Magdalene’s vision on the resurrection morning so much that she mistook Jesus Christ for a gardener.
Now, an antidote for weeping is the studying of God’s Word concerning His promises to you in time of trouble. Another one is high praises to God who specializes in reversing the irreversible. The Bible says that when David was distressed at Ziglag because his wives and children had been taken away by raiders, he appealed to God for consolation, and he was not only consoled, but was also assured of the reversal of the unpleasant situation. Beloved, weep no more and trust the Lord; for the reversal of that seemingly unpleasant situation in your life and that of your loved ones and you will laugh at the end.
Power is not about grammar. The spirit of power is designed to put you in command; over life’s difficult situations and circumstances, for there shall be no more hindrance.
it takes the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome hindrances and conquer social challenges posed by the devil. Without the spirit of power putting the enemy, where it belongs will be impossible; it is important to seek such power from God. You cannot rule unless you are in power, it takes power to rule in the midst of darkness and wickedness. God is the only one with the authority to give, take and transfer power. Without power, you cannot rule. Therefore you must never allow anything to hinder you from becoming what God wants you to become. Don’t give in to the lies and fear that the devil is sending against you. There are mountains that stand between you and the things God wants you to achieve. These mountains could be issues that are hindering the actualisation of your set goals. The mountain could be people who do not see or understand what God is saying to you yet; or it could be people who are falsely accusing you, but you can be sure that God will always reduce all your mountains into plains. There are certain burdens and problems that are too big for you to carry? All you need do is to hand them over to the Burden Bearer. In Numbers 16:1-35, three men; Korah, Dathan and Abiram, came with the intention of hindering the assignments that God gave to Moses. They accused him of turning the leadership of the congregation into a family affair. They said Aaron his brother was a priest while Miriam his sister was the Choirmaster. In the midst of this mountain, Moses turned to God for intervention. The Lord told Moses to stand aside and watch Him fight against the mountains that were rising before him to hinder the work He had committed into his hand. By the time God was through with the mountains, they had all become plains.
The Bible says in Psalms 30:5: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. When mountains rise against you, don’t waste your time entertaining any fear. When the Almighty God is on your side, it does not matter the problems confronting you, because there shall be no more hindrance.
In the journey of life, the enemy can place obstacles, in the way of a man to prevent the actualisation of his destiny; but God’s favour uproots obstacles.
Now, understand that when Gods favour uproots obstacles in your life, it supernaturally opens doors and opportunities to you that can not be humanly explained. Zerubbabel was a man commissioned by God to rebuild the ruins of Jerusalem and to restore the worship of God at His temple. The Word of the Lord concerning this came expressly to him through several prophets and scribes, including Zechariah, Haggai and Ezra. In spite of these facts, the enemy still put difficulties along his way to prevent him from fulfilling God’s divine destiny for his life. However, Zerubbabel found favour before God, and the unmerited favour of God was sent to uproot the obstacles the enemy placed in his way. This season, the Lord will remove every obstacle the enemy has placed in your way in Jesus Name. So you must embrace this truth and determine to live by it. Your constant confession should be that you are favoured of God, and His blessings are upon you.
In Daniel 1 vs 9, this was what Daniel and his companions experienced when they insisted they would not eat the king’s recommended diet; they asked to be given vegetables and water instead. Normally, the superintendent should have refused them that request, but God caused him to favour the young men, and therefore he granted their request. Also, the Bible shows us how Esther found favour before the king when she sought his audience at a very critical moment in Esther 4 vs 11 that was favour at work. There is a special kind of favour reserved for you as the King’s kid. It opens doors for you and causes people to do things they ordinarily may not have done for you. Today, God’s favour will uproot every obstacles in your life, and turn God’s search light in your direction and completely destroy everyone standing between you and your expectations, in Jesus Name.
For various reasons, the battle of life has proved to be of tremendous difficulty to mankind in every generation, but you gained victory through the blood of Jesus.
First and foremost, the enemy is often difficult for you to identify correctly, coming in different forms and sizes. Sometimes, the enemy comes in the form of human opposition, criticism and antagonism, and other times, in the form of physical challenges and obstacles. The enemy also comes as natural occurrences which you would expect to naturally fade away with time, but down the line, such occurrences metamorphose into serious problems. The battles of life can come to you through a human agent in the most subtle but wicked manner and it can take the form of a dramatic open challenge. At the onset of every battle of life, its spiritual dimension is not usually obvious. Now, the blood of Jesus Christ is an expensive weapon made available for you in Christ. As you understand the worth of this weapon, you will appreciate the power it can unleash on the enemy. To eliminate all doubt, a loud voice expressly declared from heaven; the victory of the saints over Satan himself through the blood of Jesus.
However, if you are not a Christian, although the blood is available, it is not for your use. Bible says in John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Now if you are living in sin, you belong to the devil, and you cannot use the blood to overcome him. The blood must first translate you into the kingdom of light; by cleansing and washing away your sins, before it can become a weapon in your arsenal. As you can see God has granted you victory through the Blood of Jesus.
A major difference between the unlimited Power of God and man is in the area of limitation. Man is limited in power, but God is unlimited in power.
It is written in Isaiah 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall. As energetic as youths are, they can still faint, and fall. Man is also limited by death and strength hence James 4:13-14 compares a man’s life with vapour. On the other hand, God is not limited in strength as He is neither tired nor weary (Isaiah 40:28). He does not need to sleep or slumber because He is never tired. God is not limited by death because He lives forever. The spirit of death is only one of His numerous creatures and when God is through with it, He will send it to the lake of fire. Many people make promises that they honestly intend to keep but before they could fulfil their promises, death snatches them away. God never grows old as He is from everlasting to everlasting. Also, He has no beginning, since everything that has a beginning must equally have an end. Also the unlimited Power of God can be seen in His word; you receive power when you hear the Word.
Hence, whatever problems there are in your life today started one day and must also end one day. Our God is unlimited in resources unlike men. There are times you will desire to do something, say assist a needy fellow or heal a sick person but the resources will be lacking: but not so with God. Some people would wish they could support projects in church or buy their pastor a car or house but they are limited in resources. The implication is this: because God cannot be limited, all our limitations are extremely limited. Every limitation facing you shall be swallowed up by the unlimited Power of God.
Your ability to perform well depends largely on the power and resources available to you, for breaking the barriers.
You will be faced with the reality of insufficient resources in the face of a pressing need at one point or the other. Hence, economists may advise you to forgo certain alternatives, and draw up a scale of preference on your needs. Your limitations have caused the introduction of certain words and phrases into your vocabulary, such as impossible, cannot, too late, irreversible, etc. All these reflect our state of human limitation and incapacity. Even God recognizes man’s limitations. Bible says in Job 25:6: “How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?” It is therefore evident that as long as we are confined within our natural sphere, human beings remain seriously limited. However, God is not limited because He owns the Heavens and the earth and everything in them, and He has the power to break barriers, He is able to do all things. He does not accommodate limiting words in His vocabulary like men do. How then can you break the yoke of barriers in your life? It is by being connected to the only One who cannot be held by barrier. When such a link is in place, whatever cannot limit God cannot limit you. What cannot stop God cannot stop you. This is because you have become a partaker of the divine nature. It is written in Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So you must renew your mind and walk in this reality.
You are what you think; your mindset determines your reality. Many people who had the potential of reaching great heights in their lifetime were stopped by their wrong belief system and limited mindset. You would be amazed to know that what witchcraft cannot stop can be stopped by the limiting thoughts you hold about yourself. Beloved, from now on, do not limit yourself. Rather; believe everything God says about you and confess it, because He has the capacity of breaking the barriers in your life.
God’s ultimate plan for you is to live a life that is not afflicted with sickness; He is interested in your well being and you can obtain healing through obedience to the word of God.
When you live in obedience to His word, the arm of the Lord is stretched out in your direction, the finger of God reaches out to touch you. There is a report that on the day Jesus died, He did not only pay the price for your sins, He also paid for your sickness. The word of God says in Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. This is the report at Calvary; as they were beating Him, the price for your healing and divine health was paid. So, you can’t be enslaved again by sickness. It is possible to live your life absolutely free from disease and sickness. When you are suffering from sickness, it affects other things that you are doing. Sickness drains the finances of it’s victim and causes stagnation. There are many colourful dreams that have been aborted as a result of sickness. There are many wealthy people who have become poor because a sickness drained they finances. The good news is that, the anointing of Jesus Christ is to destroy all that God has not planted in your life. Jesus came to destroy the yoke of sickness, this is why I want you to know that your case is not impossible with Jesus. However, there are certain instructions you have to work with if you want your healing to be permanent.
Bible reveals in 2kings 5:9-14 the story of Syrian army officer who was highly ranked, but was suffering from a particular sickness. The man of God asked him to go and wash; in the Jordan river seven times for him to be healed of his sickness. This officer thought the river was too dirty for him and he began to list many exclusive river, but the man of God was specific about the river and the number of times he had to enter the river. You can see that at the end he got healing through obedience.
I understand from scriptures that, you are destined to Light your World and also to live a life of exploits and extraordinary accomplishments.
The Lord Jesus made this powerful statement about you; He says to you the very thing He said about Himself when He said, in John 9:5 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world”. You are a city that is set on a hill, to be a light in your world. Light is that which makes manifest; light illuminates. You are destined in this life to bring illumination to your world. This lets you know your right as a child of God; you are called to light up the darkness. Psalm 74:20 says, “the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty,” but you are that light in a dark world. Again, i observe that the responsibility is yours to fan your zeal aglow. God is telling you what you can do. If you couldn’t be aglow and burning with the Spirit, He wouldn’t ask you to do it. He is telling you to do it because He has given you the power, the ability, to do it.
You must remember that you are destined to Light your world; which is one of your redemptive rights in Christ and as such this makes you of value. Jesus clearly describes the redeemed as the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? …Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. As we all know, salt is always required by men and always sought after because it is a preserver and a sweetener. For the redeemed, you are to operate as the salt of the earth, light of the world and a city set on the hill that cannot be hid. Also, concerning the believer, the Bible says: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth (Revelation 5:10). This implies that you are redeemed from the back group to the front group, from the valley to the mountaintop, from poverty to plenty, from shame to glory and from slavery to royalty.
From the word of God you understand that divine guidance is one of the greatest assets in the Kingdom because it is the highway to your greatness.
This implies that when you allow God to lead you in your endeavours, the future is secured and great. However, while one right step can lead you to eternal pleasure and treasure, one wrong step in life can lead you to a major crash of destiny; that is why the Bible says in Proverbs 14:12: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Thus, to avoid taking wrong steps that will crash your destiny, it is therefore of utmost importance to seek divine guidance so that you can be a partaker of the benefits therein. When God leads, He grants you supernatural breakthroughs. When Jonah went back on course with divine plan, he encountered supernatural breakthroughs in ministry. As a result, there was an outbreak of the greatest revival recorded in scriptures, which involved humans and animals. Furthermore, supernatural breakthroughs always answer to divine guidance because when God leads, your enemies are silenced, you become unstoppable and impossible doors open. You need to understand that divine guidance is the secret of the strength of God’s people and access to it will keep adding colour to your destiny. This is because when God guides, He envelopes the guided; you are human in appearance but divine in capacity. For instance, when Paul got to the place he was sent, he became a god in the likeness of men.
You must understand that God can not lead you into shame and reproach but to glory and virtue. As a result, you cannot be guided and be grounded at the same time, because God’s leading changes people’s level supernaturally and makes all things work. You must, therefore, set yourself to access divine directives like never before and tune your life to the correct spiritual frequency, so you can hear what God is saying clearly concerning your life.
The life you received in Christ is such that doesn’t require you to struggle for anything. It is a life of rest; a life of peace and prosperity.
There are numerous invitations you receive during the course of your lifetime, but there is an invitation that changes your life permanently and that invitation is only found in Jesus. Sometimes, people can invite you to great occasions where you dine and wine with very important people in the society but that does not put an end to the trouble you are going through as an individual. You dine with them, but upon returning to your house, you carry your problems again. However, when you respond to the invitation of Jesus, He solves all your problems and cause you to live a life of rest. This is why you cannot afford to respond inappropriately to this invitation. With this invitation, you come as you are. The instructions and responsibilities the Lord gives to you are not burdensome at all. The word of God says in 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. He will never ask you to do something that is beyond your ability. All He asks is that you act on His Word so that you live a life of rest.
Jesus is available to release Grace and Mercy in the state of your spiritual poverty. Present yourself to Him the way you are and let Him turn your life around. This is why the invitation of Jesus is the greatest of all invitations; it is also unique because He has all the Power and the Resources to turn any situation around. Jesus wants to set you free and deliver you from all your battles both within and without. He wants to remove the yoke that the devil and His agents have put on you. He wants to uproot every plant that He has not planted in your life; and cause you to live a life of rest submit to Him.
