Hold On

Ps.105:19 “Until the time came to fulfil his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character.

 

We are grateful to God for His hand upon us, for dismantling depression, demolishing doubt and for dealing with defeat. Over the next couple of days, by God’s grace, God is going to show us how to overcome discouragement. All these ‘D’s’ are going to crumble in Jesus Name. The truth is that, if discouragement is not handled with care it can lead to defeat. Read the rest of this entry

Never Ever!

1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV) “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light”

 

You are going to let yourself down, it is standard. You are going to set goals that you will not achieve. I am saying this to you from a place of knowing. I have experienced this myself. At the beginning of the year, I set goals in the major areas of my life. Read the rest of this entry

Praise On

Hab.3:17-18 (CEV) “Fig trees may no longer bloom, or vineyards produce grapes; olive trees may be fruitless, and harvest time a failure; sheep pens may be empty, and cattle stalls vacant—but I will still celebrate because the Lord God saves me.”

 

Have you experienced defeat, little or big, and how have you dealt with it? The third ‘D’ that attempts to stop our cheer and keeps us from rejoicing is defeat. God has helped us dismantle depression and demolish doubt. Over the next few days, Read the rest of this entry

Charisma II

Mark 16:17These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.”

The first grouping of the Sign Gifts is the Revelational Gifts, and these are the Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge, and the Discerning of Spirits. Discernment of Spirits is telling between the Spirit of God and foul spirits. Read the rest of this entry

Q & A III

1 Cor.12:9&11 (NIV) “to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit… All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”

Question: How does one differentiate between the gift of speaking in other tongues and the gift of diversity of tongues? Read the rest of this entry

Established Systems

Job 38:12 “Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east? 13 Have you made daylight spread to the ends of the earth…”

You cannot build your life assuming every coincidence is God. A lot of coincidences that people believe to be God have nothing to do with God. They are just coincidences. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Key

Heb.11:6 (AMP) But without faith it is impossible to (walk with God and) please Him, for whoever comes (near) to God must (necessarily) believe that God exists and that He rewards those who (earnestly and diligently) seek Him.

Why do people excuse incompetence or lack of power? Why do people in the Church build theories around their lack of power and around their ignorance? What I have noticed in the Church Read the rest of this entry

Manoeuvre

Ps.18:31-32 &34 “For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.”

Yesterday, we said the third thing about opportunities is, You Must Stay Flexible To Be Ready. Staying flexible is possible when we keep in step with the Holy Spirit (Gal.5:25). Read the rest of this entry

Be Flexible

John 3:8 “The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”

The third thing about opportunities is, You Must Stay Flexible To Be Ready. Gal.5:25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” You and I must stay flexible to be ready. If you are not flexible you cannot keep in step with the Holy Spirit. Read the rest of this entry

The Difference I

Mark 10:47-48When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” “Be quiet!” many of the people yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (emphasis added).

God’s heart consists of two attributes – His character (who He is) and His covenant (how He deals). Yesterday, we learnt that when Bartimaeus shouted, he struck Jesus’ heart. Read the rest of this entry
