When Jesus said, “it is finished”, I perceived He was saying that He’s conquered all and defeated the enemy.
Before making those affirmative words, He was heavily burdened by the sufferings but afterwards, He declared victory over sin, Satan and death.
So, as believers who believed in Him, you rise up not in fear but in faith and declare your victory over sin, Satan, death, failures, failing marriages, failing businesses, falling projects, sicknesses and diseases, including coronavirus. Victory is ours in Jesus name
You must get up and say to that “thing”, whatever it is, “get up and get lost!”
the weakest believer on any day is stronger than the enemy the moment He recognizes and exercise the God given authority.
God said in Exodus 33:19, And the LORD said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
He chooses one person and the other He reject. Those who disobey Him He punishes and those who humbly ask for forgiveness He pardons.
We need God’s mercy more than we need His material blessings. In fact, if God doesn’t show us mercy, we won’t have life to enjoy the other blessings.
Multiple times the bible says that if we humble and pray, God will heal us, deliver us, set us free, and after a while, He will settle us and establish us.
Let us run to God. Turn to Him for mercy. Mercy is what we need this time.
Will you seek His face and pray and ask for just one thing ? His Mercy.
The precious word of Solomon is “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”.
The days of trouble or despair or times we do not expect or find palatable are bound to come and pains may increase or discomfort pressure at every turn. During this period, it is the knowledge and the experience we have that often helps us survive and overcome such tides of life.
It is important to know God so you will be able to overcome during difficult moment. Your knowledge of God guarantees you victory. It is the truth you know that can set you free. You cannot do what you have no idea nor knowledge of doing. And you cannot wait until the moment of trouble before you seek God.
Now has always be the best time to seek God and connect your heart to Him. Tomorrow is not always guarantee. Also, you cannot use the success of today to measure the breakthrough for tomorrow. Each day has its own battle and you must be ready to fight each battle in a unique way.
If your heart is evil or is far from God, then you have no other choice than to rely on other source of help. Other source of help are often not reliable as they often fail.
For instance, your intellect may fail you. Your success or material wealth may fail you. In fact, needless to say that friends and sometimes loved ones can fail you. I have found out that ONLY God cannot let you down no matter the situation. With God, help is always around the corner.
Nobody leaves in a vacuum so no one can say “I don’t need God.” You may not like to serve Him or love Him or even care about anything, but whether it is now or later at the end of life, the realization is that you either found out how much you have lived without Him or you jump for joy that you did not turn your heart away from God.
Therefore, create a space in your heart for God to reside. Let Him come in and live inside of you. Do not hardened your heart nor turn your attention to the things of life that fades away. A relationship with God is worth much more than gold. Find a place in your heart for God and you would have found eternity.
The things that bring gladness to a man are not oblivious to the heart. They are things that the heart knows and understand. Every time you wish for a thing, it’s because your heart desires it. And when that thing finally become a reality, you are happy.
Your happiness is a function of the desires of your heart. You cannot be truly happy without satisfying your heart. Your heart is where all of your desires reside, and when those desires are fulfilled you experience happiness.
It is possible for you to be happy when you do an evil thing like an armed robber who stole is happy with the goods carted away. Also, a person who cheat looks happy because he is satisfied at another person’s dissatisfaction.
This is why the heart is a very complex part of you that must be guided what it feeds on. A good tree only produces a good fruit and a bad tree will produce bad fruit.
Your true happiness lies in the abundance of the fulfillment of your heart. Look for those things that you long to achieve and you will bring smile to your face in a short amount of time.
Often, we are unhappy because we are not getting the things that we desire. A little effort to work at what our heart desires will most likely bring merriness to the heart.
You can live each day a happy person. This is possible if you can find what brings satisfaction to you. Your life’s fulfillment is heavily dependent on the satisfaction of your heart desires. You may need to stop doing those things that causes heart ache. Some of us needs to stop the evil acts we are engaged in.
In the true sense, evil actions does not have sustaining capacity to bring happiness to a man. So, you cannot remain a happy person doing evil. The Heart is designed by God to engage in activity that brings peace to humanity.
Find your heart and you will live happily the rest of your days.
At the Heart is the crux of all matters. The heart determines the existence of all actions.
The Bible says that out of the heart produces all kinds of evil. The same heart can generate the opposite of evil. That is, the heart can produce good thoughts, good behavior and good life.
Today, I will concentrate on how you can use your heart to live a better life.
It is often said, “follow your heart” because it is expected that your heart flows the treasures of life.
If you are going to live a fulfilled life, you need to do what your heart desires to do. You cannot do what other people do or are doing and be fulfilled. You cannot live other people’s life and claim you live your life. You cannot live other people’s dream and purpose.
You’ve got to find yours and live it. It comes from what your heart desires. Don’t follow the multitude; follow your heart since it will guide you to where your treasure is.
So, I say, if your heart does not condemn your actions, then it might as well be what you are destined to do. Do it and find joy and satisfaction. You will live a fulfiiled life by doing so.
The Bible says that “when the righteous prospers, the city rejoices…..” Yes, when a “good” man rules, there is peace and abundance in the land. Just the opposite happens when an evil man reigns over the land.
It occurs to me that believers cannot just afford to fold hands and do nothing while evil prevails over the land and where there are perversions in the city.
Believers must rise and pray. They must pray against the reign of evil. It is the power of prayers that can defeat evil. And the prayer of a righteous man works wonder.
So, to every believer and those who love the Lord, let us rise (and continue to rise) and take up the challenge and pray for the deliverance of the land from evil before it overtakes us all.
Only the effective prayers of the believers can defeat the power of evil that is in the land.
Rise up and knock out the evil from the land and see righteousness reign again!
