Staying Focus on the Cross in a Storm

Important: There are four major kinds of storms mainly Natural storm (1 Corinthians 10: 13), Demonic Opposition (1 kings 19:2-3) Self-inflicted Storms usually caused by disobedience to God (1 Samuel 15: 7-26) Test of Faith (Job and Jesus: Hebrew 4:14-16)

Our reactions varies, Jesus when faced with the storm of life which was the assignment of God to redeem the world focused on the father by the power of the Holy Spirit. But most people panic and forget who they are in Christ.

John 14: 27 Peace I leave with you; Peace I give to you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.

Timing is key, Trust is key, ability to focus on the cross is key, for the Lord has given us all the resources we need within us to deal with issues of life. We cannot look the things we see but we have to focus on the cross and God to enable us overcome the storm. Jesus on the Cross represent the finished work of God and He bore all for our sake.

Today I pray Isaiah 55: 12 into your life; You will go out with Joy and be led forth in peace, the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.

I rebuke every wind of confusion in your life, every wind that causes you to panic, worry, depressed, to be anxious, that causes ill health, which troubles your mind, body and soul in the name of Jesus Christ. For Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

I decree that the peace of God that transcends all understanding calm every situation that affects your glory in Christ Jesus not to burst from within you be still from this moment.

Worship in Spirit and Truth

***Whatever God calls a man to do, He enables and empowers him but retain his right to freewill***
***Obedience is a key***

Note: God will not demand sacrifice of you of which he had not made provision for and so in giving back we are showing gratitude and appreciation to the great provision of Jehovah Nissi, this can be seen in the order of creation, before God created man, he made abundant provision on earth. (See Genesis 1: 1-28).

In Genesis 14: 18 we also noted that Abram also paid tithe through Melchizedek king of Salem, the high Priest of the most high God after he had been successful in a battle to save his cousin Lot.

Deuteronomy 8:18 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day

Deuteronomy 8: 7-10 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.

The Lord will only require of you from His abundance of Provision for You and your sacrifices of Tithing is from that which you have recieved as an income. Honour is due to whom honour is worthy of.

Haggai 2:8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.

Today I pray you truly receive the Spirit of obedience and worship in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

Worship El-Shaddai

***Tithing is an Act of Worship; Worship is a Key ***

Now: Because of Adams disobedience to God, He lost dominion of the earth to Satan which meant Satan became the ruler of the earth and in order for God to continue in relationship with Adam and protect him, there was a need to appease God through designated sacrifice which without it, God could not intervene in the earth realm.

It became necessary that Adam after tilling the land had to offer sacrifices to God and one of this was the tithe, which represented one tenth of his harvest and this principle was what he passed on to Cain and Abel (See Genesis 4:2-4; Genesis 14:18-20).

But despite Cain awareness of God’s requirement, he still transgressed and offered profane sacrifice to the Lord and unfortunately most of us still do this by not following what the Lord prescribed as tithe offering but yet we expect the best from God.

Luke 4: 5-7 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”

Note: Satan also knows the importance of worship and demands such from every of his followers.

I Pray today that you will choose to worship and honour God through the grace in Jesus Christ. Amen

Kingdom Keys

***Keys are important***

We as Christian are always craving for the blessings of God in our lives, but most of us fail to seek the Lord for directions for the necessary keys needed to open the doors of kingdom blessings.

We tend to forget the words of our Lord Jesus concerning the mysteries of the kingdom, that we need kingdom keys.

***Doors cannot open unless we use the right keys.***

November 2016: Month of Divine Visitation

This month may you not miss your divine visitation? For after every divine visitation, there comes a prophecy and a miracle. May the Lord open the book of remembrance to you as the King did unto Mordecai.

This month I pray that as Abraham received divine visitation and Sarah conceived a son and God fulfilled His promise to him to make him a father of many nation, may you receive divine visitation to bring you into your place of destiny in Jesus name. Amen
