Proverbs 18:12&16 “…humility precedes honour… Giving a gift can open doors; it gives access to important people!”
Not All Addition Leads to Increase and Not All Subtraction Leads to Decrease. God Wants To Promote You In Front Of Your Opposition. You Cannot Be Mighty And Be Petty At The Same Time. And You Need To Focus On People, Humility, And Wisdom. Read the rest of this entry
1 Peter 3:9 “Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing.”
This was Joseph speaking to his brothers in Genesis 50:20 “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Joseph could have been petty, Read the rest of this entry
Proverbs 4:1-2 “My children, listen when your father corrects you. Pay attention and learn good judgment, for I am giving you good guidance. Don’t turn away from my instructions.”
Yesterday we shared the first of nine things that the Holy Spirit has been ministering to us. Key considerations as we approach the end of the year 2023, and as we trust God for the year 2024. And the first is Not All Addition Leads to Increase and Not All Subtraction Leads to Decrease. Read the rest of this entry
1 Samuel 2:8 “He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honour. For all the earth is the Lord’s, and he has set the world in order”
Do you feel like you are in the dust? God is going to lift you up. Do you feel like you are in the garbage dump? You are a candidate for lifting. God will set you among princes and sit you in seats of honour. Why? It is because the earth is the Lord’s. Read the rest of this entry
Psalm 18:16-17 “You reached down from heaven, and you lifted me from deep in the ocean. You rescued me from enemies, who were hateful and too powerful for me.” (CEV).
God has said this is your season of lifting and to lift is to raise, to elevate, to move not just from one level to another, but from a lower level to a higher level. So, God will lift you mentally in the Name of Jesus. For some people, the challenge is that the level of their mental reasoning is just too low. Read the rest of this entry
Isaiah 43:19 “Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there!” (GNT)
This is the Decade of Destiny and of Light. And because the Word of God is cumulative, this is still our year of Lifting. However, in this season particularly God’s Word for us is Lifting. It is your season for lifting and so shall it be in Jesus Mighty Name. With all that is going on around us, sometimes we can be discouraged. For a lot of people, this outgoing year has been very challenging, very turbulent. The year is coming to an end, and everyone is excited and rejoicing. But when you look at yourself, when you look at your life, you have so many questions. And it is almost like, so what next?
I am here to say to you today that if you are not dead, He, God, is not done. If you still have breath in you, God is not done with you. God is not finished. In fact, the fact that you are alive, necessity is placed on you to fulfil the reason God has kept you alive. A lot of people who started the year with you are no longer here. Yet you are here, alive and standing. A wise man said to me in 2020 when I was going through a turbulent time, “You only know what has happened, you do not know what could have happened.” I was like, “Wow! You mean something else could have happened?” Pause and think about it; it could have been worse.
Whatever the challenges you are facing even right now, the truth is it could have been worse. Another wise man said to me in that situation, “You should be grateful that the arrow of death intended to take off your head and to kill you, only removed your cap!” However, most times we are fixated on the cap that has been removed. But your head is still intact, so be grateful. They came for your head, but they could only get your cap. The God that left the head will put another cap on it in the Mighty Name of Jesus. And you must understand this.
In this season, by the grace of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I will be speaking as a father over the churches and God’s people. At the beginning of 2020, God said to me, ‘You are going to say to the people, “The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you…”. And we started saying it from the beginning of the year and you know how that year went. And surely, it was significant. So, in this season, by the grace of God, I am speaking to you as your spiritual father and I am saying, God has left you for a purpose. There is a grand design for you being here and you have to cooperate with that purpose of God.
Prayer: Father, I believe, I receive, and I declare that according to Your Word this is my season of lifting, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen!
Exodus 15:9-10 “The enemy boasted, ‘I will chase them and catch up with them. I will plunder them and consume them. I will flash my sword; my powerful hand will destroy them.’ But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.”
In a particular season, someone very close to me came to my house and asked that I pray with him. When I looked at him, what God said to me was, ‘Say to him to make a deal with Me.’ So, I told him I was not going to pray with him. Read the rest of this entry
Isaiah 35:8-9 “And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast… But only the redeemed will walk there, (NIV).
As God makes a way for you, the way God makes for you becomes a no-go area for your enemies. And that is huge. The way God makes for you is a no-go area for your enemies. When God makes a way for His children, it is a no-go area for the enemy. Read the rest of this entry
Genesis 50:20 “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.”
Act 16:16-29 (please read) is a clear example of how God makes a way out of chains and prison. Even right now, some people reading this are saying, ‘I am tired of this bondage and prison, God’. Today you are walking out free in the Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry
