Everlasting Father, Everlasting Son, Immortal Holy Ghost, be Thou glorified. O Lord! Thank You for today, thank You for preserving Your Own, thank You for waking us up this morning to the glory of Your Name. We cannot thank You enough for all that we are and have are all us.

Father, we humble ourselves before You, speak to us today in ascent loud and clear. Touch us and heal us, deliver us from every plans of the enemies. Let every of their gathering be in vain. Wherever our names are called for evil, may you answer them in the Name of Jesus. Every altar raise against us be scattered this day in the Name of Jesus. Every arrow sent or programmed against us, families and careers, businesses and ministries receive the fire of the Holy Ghost in the Name of Jesus.

We must eat in plenty and be satisfied. Let  power that wants to withhold our harvest receive thunder of the God in Jesus Name. We hide ourselves under the shadow of the Almighty and no evil shall befall us in Jesus Name.

Beloved, we are truly going up to possess our possession. Enough of the assaults of the devil and his cohorts in the lives of the children of God. Enough of our being at ease in Zion, dear friend. Is time for us to rise up and take what belongs to us.

When God promises us victory, though His hands will wrought the victories for us but we must take our various stands to overcome. When God gives us revelations concerning issues in our lives, we must walk in that revelation to be victorious. When God gives us a word from the His Word to change our situations, we must walk in the reality of that Word to be an overcomer. Someone is not on same page with me this morning. C-o-m-e o-n with me and this word be rhema unto you.

For instance, you are sick and you have done everything humanly possible to be healed and the doctor’s report kept saying otherwise. Beloved, you then decide to search out the scripture and discover that the Word of God said that “by His stripes you are healed”. Again the Word said “I shall not die but live to declare the goodness of God in the land of the living” and I also know that a word from the Lord settles all that concerneth me. “Father, only say a word and my soul shall be healed”.

Beloved, all these were “written” and we know what is written cannot be broken. We have to stand on the Word, keep saying it until you are healed and as you progress in our healing, you keep making discoveries in the Word that arrest that situation and before you know it, you are out of it.

Never you say that God wants to take glory in your sickness and lay down sick, dear friend you will be there as long as it takes you to come to the knowledge of this truth am sharing with you.

The enemy will fight so hard to keep you down but you must rise the giant in you and get out of that situation whether the devil likes it or not, else you will be comfortable in your bondage and that is a big trouble roaming upstairs. We have more on these in the message below:

See, the Lord your God has set the land before you. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has told you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.—Deuteronomy 1:21

One of the paradoxes of the Christian life is that God’s gifts often require labor on our part. God brought the Israelites to the Promised Land and told them He was going to “give” it to them (Num. 13:2). The gift of the Promised Land sounded great to the Israelites until they realized that, with the gift, came battles against giants and fortified cities! Perhaps they assumed God was going to obliterate the inhabitants of the land before they entered. Ideally for the Israelites, they could then have entered a vacant land with houses and cities already built and ready to inhabit.

Instead, God said they would have to fight for it. They would not have to fight in their own strength, however; God would be present to fight for them. God would bring down the walls of cities, give them strategies to defeat their enemies, and empower their warriors to fight. The Israelites would have a divine advantage over anyone they fought, but they would still have to fight.

It would be wonderful if, when we become Christians, God would fill our minds with a complete knowledge of the Bible and with Bible verses already memorized. It would be easy if God would instill in us a delight in spending hours in prayer each day and a fearless desire to share our faith with others.

But God doesn’t relate to us that way. Instead, He gives us the free gift of His salvation and then tells us to “work out” our salvation in fear and trembling (Phil. 2:12b). Are you discouraged because the Christian life is more difficult and challenging than you expected? Don’t be. God’s gifts to you are perfect because, through them, God makes you perfect as well (Matt. 5:48; James 1:17).

Dear friends in Christ, God gave us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control (ESV) other version said “sound mind” or “good judgment” (2 Tim 1:7). This is so important else you keep struggling in with the issues of life. It is possible for someone to in bondage and still be comfortable, it happened to the Israelite. You want to how? Just follow me as we read our next message “Comfortable in our bondage’:

 

“May the Lord take note of you and judge,” they said to them, “because you have made us reek in front of Pharaoh and his officials—putting a sword in their hand to kill us!”—Exodus 5:21

It is possible for people to become so accustomed to their bondage that they resist efforts to free them. The Hebrews had been slaves in Egypt for four hundred years. Slavery meant that they were not free to do God’s will or to go where they wanted. Moses had come to tell the Israelites how they could experience freedom, yet they were more concerned about the reaction of their taskmasters than they were about pleasing God. For them to be free would mean that the pharaoh they were serving would be angry! It would mean that the Egyptians they had served all their lives might attack them. Freedom from their slavery did not seem to be worth the hardships they would inevitably endure.

When God sets out to free us, there will often be a price we will have to pay. Grief can be a terrible form of bondage, yet we can become comfortable with it. We can grow so comfortable with fear that we don’t know how to live without it. As destructive as our sinful habits and lifestyle might be, we may prefer living with the familiar, rather than being freed to experience the unknown. We may recognize the harmful influence of a friend but choose to reject God’s will rather than offend our friend.

As incredible as it seems, the Israelites were angry at Moses for disrupting the life of slavery to which they had grown accustomed. Have you been lulled into a comfortable relationship with your bondage? Do you fear change more than you fear God? Are you willing to allow God to do what is necessary in order to free you?

Dear friend, are we now on the same page? That is why we must pray. Be angry in your spirit and go up to possess your possession. Be angry enough to break every chains that is holding you captive presently and said to it “enough is enough”.

It is time to get up and get going. “No more stopping”, “No more waiting”, “No more parking” “is not a time of taking a stroll or meander but a time to “Keep going”, “Keep running”, Keep driving”, “keep flying”. Praise the Lord, somebody!!!! Alleluia!!!!

Pray your way to VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
