Every Time

The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:31 [emphasis added].

 

God wants you to help the people in your relationships become all that they can be. So stop pulling them down. Stop it, because that is the crab mentality. Do not be a crab! They say you can put ten crabs in a basket and not have to worry about covering the basket. And the reason is when one crab tries to climb up and escape, the other crabs pull it down. And no crab escapes or is ever able to climb up successfully because the others keep pulling it down. You need Read the rest of this entry

Life Lessons

“Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you.  They would say, ‘There’s the person who started that building and couldn’t afford to finish it!’” Lu.14:29-30

 

Yesterday, we learnt that the Pyrrhic victory is a victory that inflicts such a devastating blow on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. Some victories deal more devastating blows to the victors. So the question is, is that argument really important? Is it more important for you to win the argument and lose your spouse? Is it worth it to get that money and lose the trust of Read the rest of this entry

Your Command

“Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen” Matt.21:21

 

As a child of God, God has given you authority. Your line of command is clear; your authority is from God. Do you know what it means when you give commands in the Name of Jesus? You are saying through the authority of Christ, I command you. The demon must go, not because you are powerful but because Jesus is powerful. Remember the traffic warden illustration yesterday?

Take Note IV

“Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power… so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel…” John 13:3-5[NIV]

 

Today we start with the story of a professor in the United States, probably a philosophy professor. One day, at the end of his class with the auditorium still filled with students, he said there is no God. And he put forward a challenge. He said if there is God let Him knock me off this stage in five minutes. Everywhere went quiet, and then he began to look at his watch and mock God. Interestingly a three hundred pound [about 130kg] American football player heard the professor while he was waiting in the corridor for his friend that was in the class. And after a while the football player ran into the auditorium, carried the professor and slammed him on the ground. The professor was furious and Read the rest of this entry

Error To Avoid!

“When they returned, they told Joshua, “There’s no need for all of us to go up there; it won’t take more than two or three thousand men to attack Ai. Since there are so few of them, don’t make all our people struggle to go up there” Josh.7:3

 

You are a leader and you are responsible! You may delegate tasks but ultimately what happens based on the feedback you get is your call. Once the spies have submitted their report, their job is done. Then it is the leader’s call to determine what happens next. Unfortunately, a lot of the spies are like Ahithophel. Ahithophel was a fantastic counselor. The Bible says that when he spoke it was like God had spoken. He was David’s counselor initially but then became Absalom’s counselor.

Kingdom Rep

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men” Prov. 22:29 [KJV, emphasis added]

 

1Samuel 17:22-37. David came to the battle front as an errand boy but then he heard Goliath fuming and saw every soldier in Israel hiding. So he started asking what the reward would be for the man that kills Goliath. Eliab heard this and began to talk down on David. The ‘Eliab’s’ will always confuse God confidence with self-confidence. So they will try to reduce you to nothing, make you feel inferior, make Read the rest of this entry

Submerged!

“But if I am casting out demons by the power of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you.” Luke 11:20 [emphasis added]

 

Imagine your life and your world totally submerged in God’s Kingdom. Which means that your world and your life will be filled with the power of God, righteousness, peace, joy in the Holy Spirit, health etc. You would not be talking about healing anymore; you will be talking about health. You would not be talking about financial breakthrough anymore; you will be talking about wealth. You would not be Read the rest of this entry

What Will It Be?

When Elisha was in his last illness, King Jehoash of Israel visited him and wept over him. “My father! My father! I see the chariots and charioteers of Israel!” he cried2kings 13:14.

The pain of every leader is to look back and not find anyone following. The pain of every leader is to look back and not find anyone willing to pay the price necessary for leadership. This was a pain that Elisha was familiar with. He looked back at his life and the only son of the prophet that came close was Gehazi. Gehazi had the opportunity to collect a double Read the rest of this entry

Strike!

“But the man of God was angry with him. “You should have struck the ground five or six times!” he exclaimed. “Then you would have beaten Syria until it was entirely destroyed. Now you will be victorious only three times.” 2 kings 13:19

 

“Then he said, “Now pick up the other arrows and strike them against the ground.” So the king picked them up and struck the ground three times” 2 kings 13:18. This was the mistake the king made. God told him to start but he decided on his own when to stop. If God told you to start, let God tell you when to stop! If God tells you to strike, strike and keep striking! But Read the rest of this entry
