By The Spirit II

1Cor.12:31But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts and graces (the higher gifts and the choicest graces) …” (AMPC)

Yesterday, we looked at the gifts of the Word of Wisdom and the Word of Knowledge enumerated in  1Cor.12:8. I cannot count the number of times or the number of people that have walked into my office wondering how I knew certain things, secret things. “If not that my wife and I discussed this on our way to church and we came in the same car.

In His Name, III

Isa. 11:2 “the Spirit of Yahweh will rest upon him, the Spirit of Extraordinary Wisdom, the Spirit of Perfect Understanding the Spirit of Wise Strategy, the Spirit of Mighty Power, the Spirit of Revelation, and the Spirit of the Fear of Yahweh” (TPT)

What is the point of having counsel if you do not have the might, the strength, the capacity to pull it through? 1 Sam. 30:8 (NKJV) “So David inquired of the Lord, saying, ‘Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?…’” What David was saying is, “I have Your counsel but because everybody is tired, everybody is despondent, they are about to stone me. Read the rest of this entry

Advantage III

John 14:16-18, & 20 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth… No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. …I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.”

The fifth benefit of the Holy Spirit is, The Holy Spirit Gives Life To Our Physical Body. The Holy Spirit does not just give spiritual life, He makes you strong and powerful in your physical body just like Samson. Judges 15:14As Samson arrived at Lehi, the Philistines came shouting in triumph. But the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon Samson, and he snapped the ropes on his arms as if they were burnt strands of flax, and they fell from his wrists.” Read the rest of this entry

Take-Action

Ps.12:6 (TLB & NKJV, emphasis added) “The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is purest truth… Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

The power of prayer is not in our prayers but in His answering. Some people are so confident in their prayers. Have you heard statements like this, “When I pray…”? Who are you? It is good to pray and if you think you pray well, praise God for you. 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

Cry Out!

Heb.11:6 “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”

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). Read the rest of this entry

Here & Near

Ps.145:18-19 (KJV) “The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.”

In this season, God is challenging us in the area of prayer to keep on calling, and not to give up. God is challenging us to keep pressing in, to keep trusting and keep praying. Read the rest of this entry

See, Embrace & Push!

Luke 11:9-10…keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” 

Jesus prevailed in Gethsemane before He could prevail in Golgotha. Do not stop calling, push through it. You need to go to Gethsemane [that is the place of praying] before you get to the place of actually physically doing the work of pushing in Golgotha [Calvary]. Read the rest of this entry

See & Push

Ps.144:1-2 (Voice) “Blessed be the Eternal, my rock. He trains my hands for war, gives me the skills I need for battle. He is my unfailing love and my citadel. He is my tower of strength and my deliverer. He is my shield of protection and my shelter…”

Not many people know the story behind the way I hold my pen. It is neither fashion nor am I trying to create a new way of writing. I had an exam and I had read from six o’clock in the evening to six o’clock in the morning. Read the rest of this entry

In Him

Ps.85:8 “I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways. 9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory.”

Many of us do not know that we are living uncommon lives. In some cases, we do not even know what it is to live an uncommon life. There are three different aspects of the uncommon life; Read the rest of this entry
