You Are Empowered To Speak To The Storm

You Are Empowered To Speak To The Storm

Mark 4:39

God doesn’t want you, to go through life as though you are helpless and handicapped. Rather, you are empowered to speak to the storm over your life. You should make things happen in your life.

You might be crying, Lord, don’t you see my situation. Do something no, you are the one to do something, because He has given you the power. Act like Jesus. He calmed the storms with words. He said to the raging tempest, Peace, be still and there was a great calm. Perhaps for some reason, you find yourself agitated and fearful about a situation, what you should do is simple: Put your right hand on your chest and say, “Calm down in the Name of Jesus,” and His peace will overwhelm your soul. The disciples were sore afraid when the winds became boisterous, and the water was getting into the boat. They came to Jesus and said, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?” Jesus said to them, where is your faith in other words, “Why are you terrified? I am right here. Am your peace. They had Peace with them in the boat, for He is the peace of Israel, and He is our peace today.

So life can be very turbulent indeed, but thank God there is someone who is able to calm the Storms, He is the Lord Jesus Christ. The wise will therefore anchor their life on Him. The truth is that at one point or the other in the course of life, everyone will experience a storm. It is therefore wise to prepare for storms by giving heed to what the word of God teaches about them. According to Mathew 7:24-25; Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. In the above verses, the Lord Jesus likens His teachings to the power that stabilizes a structure battered by storms. Beloved, what kind of storm are you currently facing; I am using this opportunity to introduce to you that same Jesus, the king of kings. He can still that storm raging in your life, be it sickness, poverty, failure or disappointment of a great magnitude. Only believe, that you are empowered to speak to the storm in your life. 

You Have A New Life In Christ

You Have A New Life In Christ

Galatians 2:20

When you have a new life in Christ, it brings you into a new way of thinking and doing things in accordance with the Bible, that you have come to be acquainted with since you became born again.

When Jesus died on the Cross, He knew that if we got to hear about His love, we have believe and become one with Him. He had faith in what He did, in His vicarious sacrifice for us. He trusted that we have become everything He died, was buried, and rose back to life for. That is the new life in the Son of God by which we are to live. This is the reason you must live your life differently, setting your affection on Him, on things above, and not on things on earth or the flesh. Talking about a new life, is an indication that there has been an old one. In Christianity, when we speak of the old life we mean a combination of the philosophy of life and worldview that controls the lifestyle and behaviour of a person that is not born again. Several passages of the Bible focus on issues concerning the old and new life in order to help Christians identify the sources of their thoughts and actions, whether they are remnants of the old evil ways or from the new life in Christ.

The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. It simply means that when a person accepts Jesus as Lord and Saviour, he automatically becomes dead to the old life, and communication with the old life becomes cut off. Everything about the thought process, interest, tastes, sensibilities, and the will becomes inaccessible to the former system of control. The old password refuses to work, because the access code has been changed. This event, effectively marks the end on an era called the old life and the beginning of the new life in Jesus. Now, be determined that you will walk in, and manifest, the full blessings of the Gospel which are yours in Christ. Live to His dream; His expectation; live by the faith of the Son of God and remember that you have a new life in Christ Jesus today.

The Man God Uses To Fulfil His Purpose

The Man God Uses To Fulfil His Purpose

2 Timothy 2:20-21

Today’s scripture speaks of the availability of vessels of different makes; designs, and qualities to a great person. The choice of the man God uses to fulfil His purpose, is dependent on the master’s preference and the suitability of each vessel to the assignment at hand.

There are different qualities of vessels in God’s house; vessels of silver and gold, and vessels of wood and of earth. Being born again, we are all vessels in the house of God, made for honouring Him. None of us was made unto dishonour each one of us has been raised for His glory, but you can decide if you are going to be a vessel of honour, or a vessel of dishonour. Now, the man that God will use for any assignment must be found suitable for kingdom assignment. God is always in the business of looking for suitable resources that He can use to fulfil His purpose here on earth. Whenever He finds one, He proceeds with the preparation and training of the chosen for the assignment. Incidentally, the divine equipment usually employed for the preparation and training of the man that God will use is the cross. However, you must place yourself where you ought to be, and be available for Him to use you. The responsibility is yours, to be in a constant state of readiness, and be willing to take on more responsibilities for the Lord.

Bible says in, Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Many Christians are not fulfilling their purpose in life and ministry, because they have consistently refused the required training for their assignments, and because they are not found to be suitable yet, their commissioning remains pending. May the Lord wake you up to the reality of your situation today, so that you can take your rightful place in the programme of heaven in Jesus name. The man that God will use becomes completely transformed by going through the preparation process of God. Therefore, the man God uses to fulfil His purpose, is able to bring incredible changes and blessings into the life of anyone that comes in contact with him, through him, people with broken spirits, unstable families, the poor, those with health challenges, the demon possessed, and the disenfranchised, can all find peace and prosperity with God.

You Must Secure Your Heart With All Diligence

You Must Secure Your Heart With All Diligence

Proverbs 4:23

Your mind is the door to your human spirit, and whatever words and thoughts you allow to go through your mind unchecked, will be deposited in your spirit that is why you must secure your heart with all diligence.

Everyday, we hear words, see things, and read all kinds of information, positive and negative. This is why you need that spiritual filter, you need to mount guard on your heart and not allow your spirit receive and process the wrong information. Never allow your heart dwell on anything you hear, feel or see that is not consistent with the Word of God. For instance, if you heard that things were going bad in the economy and there is hardship everywhere, such information is contrary to what the Word of God says, therefore refuse to process it in your spirit. Refuse to let it run your life or determine the circumstances of your existence. Besides being blessed, the pure in heart are assured of seeing God. Of what use is the Christian race if at the end of the journey, you are denied the privilege of seeing God. The reason it is so essential your heart is pure is that; the state of your heart determines the output of your heart.

Most of the things that will affect your life and destiny emanate from your heart. Matthew 15:19 says evils thoughts that defile a man proceed from the heart. If your heart is occupied with impure thoughts, given a little time, you will see yourself practicing such. If you continue to dwell on immoral thoughts, before long, you will feel a force compelling you to masturbate, fornicate, rape or even commit incest. Some even sleep with animals or people of same sex. It all starts with a thought. A polluted heart cannot produce godly character. As long as the heart is polluted, your deeds will be evil and you will lose your God given destiny. I encourage you to keep vigilant watch over your heart. Embrace only thoughts of success, victory, health, prosperity, happiness and fulfilment that come from God’s Word. When your heart is holy and pure, there will be no iota of fear and condemnation in you. You will have unlimited access to your Maker because there is no hindrance in you. Therefore you must secure your heart with all diligence, and nail all your affections to the cross and make your heart right with God.

Your Great Destiny Helper

Your Great Destiny helper

Psalm 121:1-3

It has been said that one of the common features of Christianity, is the diverse conflict that is targeted at a child of God from the moment of conversion; it presents itself as a permanent companion in the journey of life, and appears to become more intense as you progress in the Christian race, but God is your great destiny helper.

Without the help of God, life can be very frustrating. Man can be helpless but God is never helpless and He is ever ready to help you.    There is a limit a man can help you but when God helps you, you will not have any limit. Human helpers may not be there when you need them but He is always there 24 hours. His schedule is forever; He never sleeps nor slumbers. He abides with you always and His help is supernatural. At the root of every divine help is God. Many are helpless and frustrated because they don’t understand the word of God. Many cannot find the treasures in the word of God because they don’t have a relationship with Him. They run around men instead of running towards God for help. I pray your understanding to be opened in Jesus name. These conflicts may come in the form of physical, emotional, and spiritual attacks. They could sometimes be manifested as temptations, financial trouble, physical or health challenges, vocational problems, obstacles and obstructions, sickness or death of a loved one, stagnancy, discouragement, failure, depression, and family problems.

Many of these may appear normal, but some are direct attacks on children of God, to hate, despise, persecute, oppress, blackmail, and even kill them. Yet, in the face of such malicious attacks, many Christians have persevered and stood firm in their convictions, with great grace and in defiant faith. Such people were able to stand in the face of evil, holding on to God’s promises for help. I pray that as you look up to God for help and assistance today, He will send help to you and you will never be disappointed in Jesus name. Like the saints of old, you are expected to build your confidence on the sure promises of God, because He is your great destiny helper.

The Powerful Work Of Grace

The Amazing Power Of Grace

Ephesians 2:8-9

The Lord, is doing something beautiful in our day through the powerful work of grace.  We are in a new phase in the move of the Spirit, and in this new phase, tremendous things are happening.

The glory of the Lord is everywhere. His righteousness has taken over. His grace has multiplied upon the earth. At new birth, everyone has a measure of grace just like every believer has a measure of faith at redemption. At redemption, you were given a measure of grace and what you do with it determines what becomes of it. It is labour that facilitates the growth of grace. Without labour, grace will be in vain. Labour releases the value of grace into a life. The scriptures, says in 1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. Grace can be frustrated or received in vain. One of the ways, to keep the grace of God alive and ever increasing is to engage in relevant and value adding labour. Grace multiplies through different channels of laboring in prayer and in the word. we hear on the news, some of the most terrible things happening in different countries around the world today. But the truth, is Satan isn’t more wicked than God is gracious. If Satan can go to high levels in his wickedness, God can go higher in His grace. God’s grace is greater than Satan’s wickedness.

Even though the iniquity of man has so increased, right now, in the realm of the spirit, there are angels the Lord has dispatched that are more powerful, working with God’s people in leading men to righteousness. Because Satan has become so ruthless in his wickedness and evil, God also has thrown away the limits in these nations, in His pursuit of souls. God’s people are going to be passionate about Christ, about the Holy Ghost, about the written Word more than ever before. There will be such insatiable hunger; in God’s people for the things of the Spirit. Many today who are invoking calumnies against the Church, and persecuting Christians, are going to turn to Christ like Saul of Tarsus did. By the powerful work of grace, may the expectation of God be fulfilled in your life today in Jesus name.

The Unlimited Power Of Faith

The Unlimited Power Of Faith

Mark 9:23

The unlimited power of faith, is a kind of faith that works wonders in the life of an individual. It brings into manifestation, the miracle working power of God and makes one see His glory.

The power of God is beyond human understanding. For this reason, you need to believe what God says, even when you don’t know how He will do it. This is where faith comes in. There will always be a reason to doubt, but you must continue to suppress all doubts with great faith in God. From scriptures, we discover that faith is the master key for taking the delivery of your inheritance in Christ. You cannot place value on it, because it is far beyond what can be measured. Therefore, faith is the answer to every problem of life. For instance, in Matthew 17:20; when Jesus disciples asked Him why they couldn’t deliver the boy possessed with demons, Jesus said: Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Are there mountains in your life that you want removed? Are there steps you want to take that will lead to your breakthrough but you are having doubts about? Are there promises you received from God for which fulfilment seems impossible now? All will be well, and my God will remove every mountain before you. He will bring you to your desired destination in Jesus Name.

Unbelief is very dangerous because it displeases God. When the Almighty speaks to you and says what He will do, don’t begin to scratch your head for a rationalization of its possibility. Many people do not believe in their ability; to do what the word of God says they can do. You must believe in yourself. One reason, you must believe in yourself is because God believes in you. If God did not believe in you, He wouldn’t have created you in His own image or endowed you with His capability and qualities. Begin to see yourself the way God sees you. You are a good product. You must understand that though a revelation of the Word shows you your redemptive rights, it is the unlimited Power of faith that enforces its release in your life.

You Need A Divine Touch

You Need A Divine Touch

Matthew 9:21

The entrance of sin into this world, destroyed so many things about humanity. It provoked God to pronounce a curse on the ground; and banish mankind to a life of sorrow and pain. Therefore, you need a divine touch from God to reign as a king in life.

For instance, in Genesis 3:16-17: Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; The unifying theme, of God’s pronouncements on Adam and Eve was sorrow. From that moment onwards, sorrow has been a heritage of humanity. But praise God, because whatever the Almighty God touches is bound to be good, irrespective of its initial condition. This is why, every man born of a woman needs the divine touch of God. Only the regeneration, of a man’s spirit through God’s divine touch can put an end to his heritage of sorrow. In today’s Bible reading, you see a woman in whom the heritage of sorrow manifested as an issue of blood for twelve years. In Luke 8:43, the Bible says she had spent all she had in seeking healing from physicians to no avail.

At this point in her life, only a divine touch could put an end to her years of agony and sorrow. Then one day, she came across the Great Physician, Jesus Christ. Her faith was so strong; she believed in her heart that all she needed from Him was a passive divine touch. She believed that based on the power in the divine touch, she did not need an active touch for her to be made whole. This singular act of faith was commended by Jesus Himself. I pray for someone reading this article today; that your day of deliverance is now in Jesus Name. The Almighty God, will touch and perfect everything concerning you in Jesus Name. God wants to visit you too and touch your life in a special way. This is why you need a divine touch of the Lord; to change your life forever.

The Power Of God’s Presence

The Wonder Working Power Of God's Presence

Numbers 23:21-24

One of the first things, that a genuinely born again Christian will quickly enjoy, about the Christian experience is the power of God’s presence.

It is of special interest to know that; no curse can be placed on you and no evil can be done against you. Even witchcraft is of no effect, as long as you submit to the royal rule of God. So when you walk in faith and obedience, no power of the enemy can harm you. Now when you come under God’s authority, His authority comes upon you. Then you will be able to resist the devil, and his demons in the authority of His name and by the power of His word. Immediately you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, the powers that used to manipulate and control things in your life becomes paralysed as you begin to call upon the Name of the Lord. This is simply because, all power belongs to Jesus (Matthew 28:18) and He has deposited so much of this power in His Name. The power of God’s presence, is so potent and active that there is no limitation, whatsoever to what you can achieve through the application of the Name. The dead has come alive by the Name, sorrow has been turned to joy in many lives by the Name, and the Name has brought salvation to billions of souls.

According to Luke 10:19, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. The presence of God, carries supreme authority and unlimited power. Having understood this truth, you ought to praise His Name at all times and deploy the power in His Name against all challenges and circumstances you are confronted with. For instance in Mark 9:38-39; A certain man caught the revelation of the power in the Name of Jesus even before His death and resurrection, and he deployed it. He was not even one of the disciples, who were with Jesus or among those who followed Jesus at all times. Yet, he understood the power in the Name of Jesus and he took advantage of it. Therefore, the power of God’s presence, will do you no good if you do not apply it. As you walk in the joy of His presence, power and protection may the potent power in His name work for you in Jesus name.

Prayer Breaks The Powers Of Darkness

Prayer Breaks The Powers Of Darkness

Revelation 8:3-5

As we all know, we are in the last days, which are the days of the manifestation of God’s power. So it is important, for you to know that, your prayers are used by God in a very special way to break the powers of darkness.

Several times in the bible, virtue or power is transferred from a source to a recipient through prayer. This is a prophetic picture of how your prayers; are used by God to influence earthly events. In order words, when your prayers are mixed with God’s frankincense and cast back into the earth, a powerful display of lightning, thunder and an earthquake results. For instance, we see this happening in Acts 4:31; And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. When we send our prayers by God’s spirit to His throne, He sends them back in a way that can be seen, heard and felt here on earth. Our Bible text reveals that prayer can work wonders beyond our wildest imagination. It also reveals the inevitability of prayer in our lives. If Jesus could do nothing without prayer, then we should not think that an effective prayer life is optional in our Christian walk. Oftentimes, when we talk about prayer, what comes to people’s mind is asking God for things, making entreaties and requests; that is all they know about prayer. Yes, such a prayer has its place, where you make requests, but prayer has higher purposes than asking God for your needs.

So you must understand; that it takes a genuine thirst to encounter the power of God. Empowerment answers to demand, not wishes and that is why the altar of prayer is the altar of empowerment. From scriptures, desperation is interpreted as a thirst, a crave, a longing and a panting. As it is written in psalm 63:1-2: O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. when Jesus engaged the altar of prayer on the Mount of transfiguration, He was empowered and the people were amazed at the mighty power of God. So It is important to understand today that, prayer breaks the powers of darkness.
