I will exalt You Lord for Thou has lifted me against my enemies, Thy power over me is love alleluia, I will exalt Jesus for Thou has lifted me above my enemies Your power over is love alleluia. // When I come into your presence am so happy, when I come into Your presence am so glad, in Your presence there anointing, Your Spirit will surround me in Your presence anointing breaks the yokes.

Faithful Father, we thank You we bless Your Holy Name. Thank You Jesus for another new day You have made that we should rejoice and be glad in it. Faithful Father we bow and reverence You, be Thou glorify in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are doing today? Thank God for the gift of today. A glance on yesterday’s ministration “sowing the seed of righteousness.” Beloved, righteousness has a reward as was mentioned yesterday. One of such reward is that we will be entitled to the benefits of the Calvary – He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; and by His stripes we are made whole (1 Peter 2:24 ). (HCSB). a Another reward of righteousness living – is that our prayer will avail much. The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful (James 5:16) (HCSB).

So the benefit of righteousness cannot be underestimated and that why we have no option other than to live as Christ instructed us to live.

On that note dearly beloved, I welcome you into God’s presence this day. You are in for miracles. I hope you do remember that you cannot come into God’s presence and remain the same. Therefore today is that “Day,” can I hear a believing Amen!!!

Join me to sing this song “this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. This is the day that the Lord made, the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it. Alleluia.

Yes this is the day of rejoicing in your life, if events around you is saying otherwise, is not going to stop what God has in stock for you. He has ordain today to bless and honour you, shout alleluia!

Today, we are going to life up our Holy hands up to God to pray a prayer that must answered by God. Yes! God is the only One that answers prayers. Though you may receive help from man but not until heavens gives approval to it. Praise God.

Last week in our prayer school, using the disciple approach by asking Jesus to teach us how to pray, this request is important as releases to us the power of fellowship with God which is the essence of  true religion, the channel of all blessings and the secret of power and life.

However, today we will be further on it again- ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ Yes, us, Lord. We have read in They Word with what power Thy believing people of old used to pray, and what mighty wonders were done in answer to their prayers. And if this took place under the Old Covenant, in the time of preparation, how much more wilt Thou not now, in these days of fulfilment, give Thy people this sure sign of Thy presence in their midst.

We have heard the promises given to Thine apostles of the power of prayer in Thy name, and have seen how gloriously they experienced their truth: we know for certain, they can become true to us too. We hear continually even in these days what glorious tokens of Thy power Thou dost still give to those who trust Thee fully.

 Lord! these all are men of like passions with ourselves; teach us to pray so too. The promises are for us, the powers and gifts of the heavenly world are for us. O teach us to pray so that we may receive abundantly. To us too Thou hast entrusted Thy work, on our prayer too the coming of Thy kingdom depends, in our prayer too Thou canst glorify Thy name; ‘Lord teach us to pray.’ Yes, us, Lord; we offer ourselves as learners; we would indeed be taught of Thee. ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’

Is someone asking God to teach me “how to live like Christ?”  This topic was teach a day before now and yesterday was a fellow up on the same principal today we need to pray it into our lives. Beloved it is not by our own power that we live righteously but by the Spirit of God therefore we must ask the Spirit of God to help us.(Rom 8:26-27)

Let us ask humbly and receive also from Him else we will be robbing ourselves of the blessings God has prepared for us as we will later discover from second message we have below.

Satan our arch enemy, the accuser of the brethren specialize in making us feel guilty of our past sins and fall even when Jesus has forgiven us and cleanse us with His blood. That is why you must not miss any of the series that will be exposing us on how to pray right as we will be  learning from  the school of prayer every Wednesday, so that our victorious living will be guaranteed.

Beloved, so what are you waiting for, let’s dig it further for more revelations. Praise the Lord:

“For me to live is Christ.” Philippians 1:21

 

The believer did not always live to Christ. He began to do so when God the Holy Spirit convinced him of sin, and when by grace he was brought to see the dying Saviour making a propitiation for his guilt. From the moment of the new and celestial birth the man begins to live to Christ. Jesus is to believers the one pearl of great price, for whom we are willing to part with all that we have.

He has so completely won our love, that it beats alone for Him; to His glory we would live, and in defence of His gospel we would die; He is the pattern of our life, and the model after which we would sculpture our character.

Paul’s words mean more than most men think; they imply that the aim and end of his life was Christ—nay, his life itself was Jesus. In the words of an ancient saint, he did eat, and drink, and sleep eternal life. Jesus was his very breath, the soul of his soul, the heart of his heart, the life of his life.

Can you say, as a professing Christian, that you live up to this idea? Can you honestly say that for you to live is Christ? Your business—are you doing it for Christ? Is it not done for self- aggrandizement and for family advantage? Do you ask, “Is that a mean reason?” For the Christian it is. He professes to live for Christ; how can he live for another object without committing a spiritual adultery?

Many there are who carry out this principle in some measure; but who is there that dare say that he hath lived wholly for Christ as the apostle did? Yet, this alone is the true life of a Christian—its source, its sustenance, its fashion, its end, all gathered up in one word—Christ Jesus. Lord, accept me; I here present myself, praying to live only in Thee and to Thee.

 Let me be as the bullock which stands between the plough and the altar, to work or to be sacrificed; and let my motto be, “Ready for either.”

Is that your prayer? Are your praying to be more like Jesus? we need to break though in this prayer request. Do you know why, because our victorious living lie heavily on it. Living victoriously means living just the way Jesus lives.

Do you know what it entails to live just like Jesus?  Praise God. Beloved before now a lot must have been denied you but after today your story must change. You must begin to win on every side. You must possess all God has in stock for you. Never will you be swindled by satan or by his cohorts again. Praise God!

Here Are Four Ways We Can Rob Ourselves Of God’s Blessing

 

  1. Judge ourselves:

I do not even examine myself (literally: Judge, try, condemn)The one who examines me is the Lordwho will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of mens hearts… ” ( 1 Corinthians 4:3-5)

Paul did, however, “examine” his heart, but the element of self-condemnation was absent:

Test (Literally: assay, scrutinize) yourselves to see if you are in the faith.” (2 Corinthians 13:5)

  1. Condemn ourselves:

        “There isno condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1)

 “God is infinitely greater than our hearts ( in not condemning us). When we realize this, our hearts no longer accuse us(and) we may have the utmost confidence in Gods presence.” (1 John 3:20-22 – Phillips)

  1. Not accept His unconditional love:

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness .God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Jeremiah 31:3; Romans 5:8)

  1. Not accept His invitation to minister to us:

Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to youHe will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.” (Isaiah 30:18, 19).

 God knows and loves you, warts and all. By judging or condemning yourself, you denigrate the great grace of God. So relax in Him and drink in His unfathomable love.

Beloved, have you seen various ways you can denial yourself of God’s blessings in your life. Ask the Holy Spirit to help your infirmities today as you pray so that you will come boldly into God’s presence going forward. You come in as a son will come before his Father and be blessed.

No more bending our head low in dishonour but we will arise and be blessed in Jesus Name. Where is the enemy judging you today? Who is he using to judge you and tell you cannot be better than who you are at the moment? Do not dwell in condemnation. Shake off all those accusations and leap forward. This is your victorious year and it will not deliver less to you.

Father answer us early as we ask of the nature of Christ to be built in us today in Jesus Name.

Beloved, come in boldly before the Throne of mercies and pray. Praise God. live in his Presence thereafter.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
