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!
John 10:10 “…But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!” (TPT)
T stands for Transform Our Lives. John 10:10 “I came to give life – life in all its fullness.” (ICB). This life that Jesus came to give is tripartite and you need to get this. This fullness of life is New Life, Abundant Life, and Eternal life. New Life is what happens when we give our lives to Jesus. Read the rest of this entry
Matthew 20:31-34 “…But they only shouted louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord,” they said, “we want to see!” Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see!…”
The lifeguards tell us that they cannot save someone as long as the person is trying to save himself or herself. So, the more the person struggles, the more he or she drowns. The more you try to do it in your strength, the faster you go down. The lifeguard is trained to do two things when someone is drowning. Read the rest of this entry
Acts 4:12 “Jesus is the only one who can save people. His name is the only power in the world that has been given to save anyone. We must be saved through him!” (ERV)
Jesus has not only come to L – Let Us In On Who God Is, I – Inform Us Of God’s Plan, G – Guide Our Steps. He has come to H, Heal Our Hurts. The truth is everybody has a hidden wound. It may be something that happened to you or something that did not happen to you. Read the rest of this entry
Ephesians 5:13 “When the light shines, it exposes even the dark and shadowy things and turns them into pure reflections of light.” (Voice)
Jesus came to L – Let Us In On Who God Is, I – Inform Us Of God’s Plan, G – Guide Our Steps. John 8:12 “…I am the Light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path.” (LB, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
John 14:6-7 “Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him.” (ERV)
John 14:9 “…Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father….” (NIV). What a huge statement! Who on earth can say, ‘if you see Me, you have seen The Father?’ It is either an arrogant statement or it is the truth. It is either He is crazy, or He is God. Read the rest of this entry
John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (NIV)
Christ Jesus came to the earth to light up the world and the question is how. To help us, we have put it in a way that we can easily remember and relate with. We have come up with the acronym “L.I.G.H.T”. L stands for Let Us In On Who God Is. Read the rest of this entry
John 8:12 “Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
This is the Decade of Light, and the concept of light pervades the scriptures. If you check, from the very first chapter in the Bible to the very last chapter of the Bible, you will see God using light, talking about light, and exclaiming light. Read the rest of this entry
Hebrews 12:2 “Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever…” (MSG)
Jesus surrendered His life for you and I! He gave His life for you and me, He voluntarily gave up His spirit. You do not give up what is taken from you. If something is taken from you forcefully by lies, coercion, or manipulation. But none of those made Jesus give up His life. Read the rest of this entry
Psalm 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord rescues them from them all.” (NRSV).
God wants us to remember even in the valley, that The Reward Will Last Forever! Remember God Has a Good Purpose Even For The Valley! And Remember that You Are Not Alone! God wants us to remember that regardless of the valleys we go through, we are never alone. I am not alone. Read the rest of this entry
