Not satan, not his agents, not demons or principality is permitted to stop you. Beloved in the Name of Jesus you are unstoppable. The Lord has said it nothing will otherwise in Jesus Name and if any power is risen against you to hinder the pronouncement of the Lord , be assured that is late because His Word said the word has gone forth and will not return to me void but must accomplished that which it has sent forth to perform. Therefore every power that is contending the promise of God in your life is receiving stones of fire in Jesus Name. The heavenly bulldozer is crushing it now in Jesus Name.

Yes!!! Wondering where you are? Alright, you are in the PCL session of the Overcomers-Faith Ministry. So welcome to another class of Practical Christian Living session. Through the power of the Holy Spirit you will not only enjoy the class, it will be a blessing to you in Jesus Name.

The Holy Spirit has help us so much with timing this week and am sure someone is blessed. Today is the grand finale and is power pack as usual, so sit down and relax as we take a trip in the Word of God once again and be blessed.

Our topic today says “…Now is the acceptable time.”  It means that is there is always an acceptable time both in heaven and here on earth.

Prophet Isaiah prophesy this during his time as lead by the Spirit of God and when Jesus was ripe to carry on with His ministry He repeated this statement as led Him by the Spirit of God.

It therefore means that beloved there is ‘time” set by God for every thing to happen in your life and when that is not happening there is a problem somewhere. Our theme text for the month said “You have encompassed this mountain long enough” (ASV). Another translation says “You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn to the North.” (NLT) . Deut 2:2

Beloved, you read it. I just said what the Lord said in His Word. Noticed you that the Lord also give them direction? The Lord did not just told them that they have been long where they where; He also give them direction of where to go.

Beloved, you see as we have been told to move forward I believe the time is “Now,” however you must get your ‘bearing’ from the Lord. You must pray to hear God and  where He is leading you to. It might not necessary be a change in location as we just read, it might be in terms of business or job, investment or project to commence.

It could also be in terms of new home that is marriages and new family to establish, beloved what is that thing you have been believing God for, the Lord is saying “move forward.”

If the Lord bid you come; then you have to move (Matt 14:28).

While we are asking God to help us not to run ahead of Him, we must also pray that we do not lag behind either (read up – 6th feb.)

Having said that let also know that when we obey the voice of God something glorious will happen. You will glorify the Name of the Lord that you will see in the second ministration.

Beloved, take your time and go through all what we did this week I believe we must see where the Spirit of God is speaking directly to us.

Remember, this is an acceptable time set for your breakthrough do not let it pass by. Let’s discover more:

The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me,because the Lord has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor.He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and freedom to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn.—Isaiah 61:1–2

 

God’s timing is perfect! When He speaks, the time to respond in obedience is now. We often act as if we have all the time in the world to obey Him, but history doesn’t wait on our commitments. There is no such thing as postponing a decision with God. Either we obey, or we disobey. It is either faith or unbelief, obedience or disobedience.

When God announces that now is the acceptable time, what you do next is critical. How often people have been unprepared when a word came to them from the Lord. God said, “Now is the time for you to respond to Me” and their response was, “But I’m not ready. I have some things I need to do first. I’m too busy!” (Matt. 8:21). God’s timing is always perfect. He knows you, and He is fully aware of your circumstances. He knows all that He has built into your life until now, and He extends His invitation knowing that His resources are more than adequate for any assignment He gives you.

That is why Scripture tells us God is concerned with our heart. If we do not keep our heart in love with Jesus, our disobedience when God speaks could affect the lives of others. When God speaks it is always out of the context of eternity. We don’t have to know all the implications of what He is asking. We just have to know that it is a word from almighty God. “Now” is always the acceptable time to respond to the Lord!

Some things might present itself as an acceptable time as the Holy Spirit to keep you on the right track. In walking with God’s timing let all our desires be to please and glorify His Name. Let’s keep going:

                                      “To Him be glory both now and forever.” 2Peter 3:18

 

Heaven will be full of the ceaseless praises of Jesus. Eternity! thine unnumbered years shall speed their everlasting course, but forever and for ever, “to Him be glory.” Is He not a “Priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek”? “To Him be glory.” Is He not king for ever?—King of kings and Lord of lords, the everlasting Father? “To Him be glory for ever.”

Never shall His praises cease. That which was bought with blood deserves to last while immortality endures. The glory of the cross must never be eclipsed; the lustre of the grave and of the resurrection must never be dimmed. O Jesus! thou shalt be praised for ever. Long as immortal spirits live—long as the Father’s throne endures—for ever, for ever, unto Thee shall be glory.

Believer, you are anticipating the time when you shall join the saints above in ascribing all glory to Jesus; but are you glorifying Him now? The apostle’s words are, “To Him be glory both now and for ever.” Will you not this day make it your prayer? “Lord, help me to glorify Thee; I am poor, help me to glorify Thee by contentment; I am sick, help me to give Thee honour by patience; I have talents, help me to extol Thee by spending them for Thee; I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve thee; I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but Thine, and glow with no flame but affection for Thee; I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of Thee and for Thee.

Thou hast put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose: I cannot do much, but as the widow put in her two mites, which were all her living, so, Lord, I cast my time and eternity too into Thy treasury; I am all Thine; take me, and enable me to glorify Thee now, in all that I say, in all that I do, and with all that I have.”

Is this your personal commitment today unto God? Then go and do as you have said and the Lord will honour you. Let our time be redeem for the Lord’s course and the Lord will honour.

Beloved, hope you are blessed. Believe yea that this is the acceptable time? Then take a bold step and glorify the Lord. Just a little addendum to yesterday ministration. The Spirit of God is telling someone right now “do not be constraint in your act of goodness just because of what you are passing through, remember is the Lord that teaches you how to make wealth. Remember also “there is he that scatter and gathered much.” May God give you more understanding in Jesus Name. (Prov 11:24;4, 2 Cor 9:9-15). All we have are gift from God and must be use for His glory. Praise the Lord.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week by God’s grace.

Remain blessed in the Lord
