Wow! The last PCL of the month is here, how the month flew by. So surprising that the month of October is almost gone. Beloved, aren’t grateful that God protected you and preserve you all this month. I am most grateful to God for His faithfulness in my live, family and ministry, am sure you are also. Let reserve the rest on Monday by God’s grace, we rock that day with high praises to the One Who Alone deserve our praise.
This month’s theme “Our month of Dominion through Meekness that is in Christ Jesus, Beloved, how did it go with you? Can you really say of the truth that this topic had an impact in your life? Meekness I learnt from Sunday that is an attribute of being “teachable”. Can I ask you all this important question I have held on to till this day? “Are you teachable?”
The bible recorded that Christ became obedient through the things He learnt. Christ made no reputation of Himself but was very eager to do accomplish the will of His Father thereby reconciling us back to God.
Apostle Paul also said in one of his letter to the Philippians that he count all things loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ. He count as dung all he knew that He may win Christ. Can same be said of you? (Phil 3:8)
Our test for today testify truly that it only in Christ you learn things about the kingdom of God and not in any other thing or through any other means.
This scenario occur where Christ was demolishing the seventy disciples He sent out having heard their report of how devil were subject to them charge them with authority over satan and gave the power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you. However He told them to be humble and teaches them in things to rejoice about.
Beloved, that same power has been given to you also. Christian life is offensive to the kingdom of Satan therefore he fights so we grid our lions and fight also lest we will be mix meat for the devil. God forbids.
Our Lord Jesus, however praised God for hiding this things from the wise and the prudent but revealing it to those who are lowly in heart and in the knowledge of God as you can see in our study text. Praise the Lord!
Beloved, the devil is not happy that you are saved. Every day He struggles for the salvation of your soul. It is your dominion power He is struggling with.
But here is the goodnews Jesus has given thee to power to “tread” on everything that represent serpents and scorpions in your life. He has given us power over every enemies surrounding our lives and destinies. And nothing shall by any means hurt us.
Beloved, you are more that conqueror through Christ that loves you. We conquer through prayer, so let’s watch and pray (Matt 26:41).
We are call to “GO’ and go we must. We must preach the Word in season and out of season (2Tim 4:8).
Do you want to have dominion over everything that hitherto dominated you? Beloved, here is another opportunity presenting itself to you, be meek and lowly as our Lord Jesus was and God honoured Him (Phil 2:9-11).
Let’s get more from the message below:
In that same hour He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, because this was Your good pleasure.”—Luke 10:21
One hindrance to hearing a word from God may be our own wisdom. Wisdom, like success, can delude us to think we should take the role of teacher rather than student. Our knowledge lulls us into thinking we have sufficient wisdom to meet any challenge. Believing we are wise tempts us to evaluate the shortcomings of others yet be unaware of how much growth is still required in ourselves.
The Pharisees were the religious experts of their day. They possessed much information about God, but they had no personal relationship with Him. Their knowledge clouded their view of their condition before God. Jesus thanked His Father that it was not to these “experts” that the Father had revealed spiritual truth, but rather to those who were humble and who recognized their need for God’s revelation.
When religious leaders experience spiritual failure, their downfall is often met with surprise. It shouldn’t be. Religious people with the most knowledge are sometimes the ones least responsive to God’s Word. Knowledge can easily lead to pride, and pride impedes us from seeking God.
How do you know if you are a “Pharisee”? When you do not have a teachable spirit. When you become defensive if a fellow Christian shares a concern about your spiritual condition. When you do not seek to hear from God, believing you already know what He thinks. When you feel that you are capable of helping others in their spiritual lives, but no one can teach you anything. Don’t allow the limited knowledge you now have to blind you to the great truths God still wants to reveal to you.
This is very important to note as we will soon draw the curtain of this month close by the grace of God. Remain teachable because that is only way to the top. Praise God. Earlier in the week we made a declaration of what we choose to do irrespective of what is happening around us, we said we choose to rejoice even when everything we labored for crumbled before our eyes. The next message have more to say:
Let keep going:
Do You Wonder If You Have What It Takes To Pull It Off… One More Day?
If so, then ponder this: “In all your journey as a believer, you will have two categories of spiritual experiences. One is tender, delightful and loving. The other can be quite obscure, dry, dark, and desolate. God gives us the first one to gain us; he gives us the second to purify us.” (Michael Molinos)
God is using every experience in your life to transform you into Christ’s character:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son… ” (Romans 8:28, 29a)
Therefore: Choose today to praise Him for every eventuality that comes into your life, viewing them as His ordained agents to make you more like Him.
God has given you the necessary resources to live life exactly as He intends:
“What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31, 32)
Therefore: Choose today to appropriate from Him whatever resources are necessary to accomplish what He has put before you.
No accusation against you can stand. Imagine: Christ not only died for you but right now is praying for you:
“Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Romans 8:33, 34)
Therefore: Choose today to rest in the knowledge that your Sovereign God has declared you righteous in His sight, and has forgiven (and forgotten) past sins. Thus, no accusation against you stands. Draw strength in the knowledge that at this moment Jesus is in the Father’s presence, praying for you.
In all life’s circumstances God promises you total victory as He encompasses you in His love:
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life… neither the present nor the future… nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:35, 37, 38a,c, 39b)
Therefore: Choose today to rest in His ever-present love, as you appropriate Him as your resource in realizing victory over every obstacle or adversary.
What more can I say dear beloved. Jesus loves you. Mediate on this things all though this week and be humble enough to make space in your heart to learn from God about your future; about your destiny. More on how to bring perishing souls to the knowledge of God. Putting on Christ is the HALLMARK of this month teaching, hope you will (Rom 13:14). Because Christ is the light through whom your dominion will be establish (Jn 1:4).
Praise the Name of the Lord. See you next week by the grace and mercies of God.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
