PROSPERITY IS YOUR PORTION (1)


And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. (Genesis 39:2 KJV)

Joseph was born with a great purpose in life but things were never easy for him right from the beginning. His brothers, the people who were meant to help him nature his dreams are the ones that were determined to destroy them. They were so unhappy with him they even thought of killing him. They ended up selling him as a slave and he was taken into Egypt.

When the Lord is with you, it really doesn’t matter where you are. His presence in your life is synonymous with prosperity. As a slave, in his master’s house, Joseph prospered. The things he touched with his hands were blessed.

The ingredient you need in your life to prosper is God’s presence. A vibrant relationship with him. Are you in a place not because of your own choice and you feel discouraged? Do not despair, nothing happens without the Lord knowing about it. All things do indeed work eventually for your good. The important thing is to remain connected to the Lord. He will cause his grace to make you shine in the midst of your enemies.

In that state of slavery, God was involved in Joseph’s life as he was preparing him to take charge and leadership of Egypt, a vast and prosperous nation in his time. I urge you not to give up, look ahead. There is a great assignment that God is preparing for you. What you are facing and experiencing is a form of training for your reigning!

I pray for you that as you are in that situation, may you be strengthened by God’s Spirit. May you be delivered from all sorts of discouragement that leads to giving up.

Declare this,
I am God’s chosen with a special assignment here on earth. I rise above all fear and discouragement. Prosperity is my portion in all I do.

HE ASCENDED SO YOU MAY DESCEND (2)


Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (John 20:17 KJV)

For thirty-three years he walked in a lesser domain, being a blessing to many. His death on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice which would bring about his ultimate goal, the redemption of mankind. On his ascension, he gave the great commission to his disciples and those who would take the call to receive him.

He ascended but granted authority to his children to go and extend his rule. He ascended to his Father, who now is our Father by virtue of his accomplishments here on earth, to his God who now is our God! If the God of the universe is now your Father, you must descend on this world with confidence and authority. When Christ ascended, he sat at the right hand of God, ever-living to make intercession for you (Hebrews 12:2, Ephesians 1:20-21). Your victory must be obvious because you have representation in the greatest throne room of the universe. Daily your name is mentioned in intercession. Do great things and give pleasure to your Heavenly Father who blessed you with this life.

Whatever plans you have, descend on them with the confidence that He who ascended deposited in you the power to succeed. He is delighted when you make progress because his mission on earth was to set you free from the bonds of the worst slavery ever recorded.

As you move into the next year, put your trust and confidence in Jesus knowing that he will never fail you. He will protect you, he will cover you under the shadow of his wings (Psalm 91). Even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death he will be with you. He ascended into a realm where his power is unchallenged and where his authority is undisputed.

I pray for you today that every evil agenda that was planned and programmed against you is overcome because he who sits in the heavens is fighting for you. You are coming out of every snare of the fouler stronger.

Declare this,
He ascended so that I may descend on every assignment with confidence. He who started a good work in me will finish it. I am blessed of God who is my Father. I walk in confidence because I have representation in the greatest throne room of the universe.

HE DESCENDED SO YOU MAY ASCEND (1)


And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. (Luke 1:30-31 KJV)

It seemed like an ordinary day for the young Mary until her space was invaded by an Angel which bore a message of such a magnitude the world would not be same thereafter. Right from the beginning, God intended to visit the world and restore that which was lost by Adam and break the shackles of the devil. His entrance had to be through his established order, Christ would have to come through a human womb.

The coming of Jesus dealt with insecurities and brought favour for Mary. It’s your time to experience the same. God stepped down so that you may step up! Christ descended to redeem you so that you may ascend to the level of life that he made you for. You were a slave, at the mercy of the devil who determined your going in and your coming out but Christ broke the circle for you. Now you can walk in liberty that he brought.

Because he descended from a superior domain into a lesser one (from heaven to earth), he paid for your promotion, he paid for your healing and he paid for your progress. I want you to know today that Jesus paid the price so you may have the prize. Don’t settle for less because he paid for more!

Refuse to remain a slave of the devil, a captive under his control. You are free today to conceive ideas and execute them. You are free to walk in power and authority here on earth. Your destiny is in your hands, change the story of your life.

Take time today to reflect on your life. Look at the areas where you have presented yourself to the devil a willing slave for him to do his bidding. These are areas in which you have been made to stoop so low with no hope of rising. Christ descended so that you may ascend with him. He is stretching forth his hand to you today and saying, ‘Rise up, your time has come!’

I pray for you today that your tired hands will find a new grip. Everything that kept you a slave and prisoner in this life is releasing you now because the author of life has come. The one who gives life in abundance without reservation, Christ Jesus.

Declare this,
Thank you Lord Jesus for you descended so that I may ascend. You came down so that I may go up. I rise above every limitation as I embrace the promises of God. My fears and insecurities are overcome and favour has become my portion in Jesus’ name!
