ONE MINUTE BEFORE YOUR MIRACLE

And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. (Luke 9:42 KJV)

A burdened father had tried everything to get a solution for his child but every attempt had been futile. The devil’s grip on the boy was firm and even a visit to the disciples had failed to bring relief. He wanted a normal life for his son but the devil would not give it easy.

At that moment, the Master of life arrived, the giver of Zoe (the God kind of life)! The cry of the father could be heard by everyone, “Please, please teacher, take a look at my son, he is my only child.” This was the moment for his breakthrough, in that minute things could change for the best. After all he was in front of Jesus, surely the devil should lose his grip now! To the delight of the father, Jesus said “bring him.” He was a few steps from his miracle, just a moment from knocking off the devil’s grip.

Many have been in that place before, where you thought you were close to the solution and indeed you were. A place where things would change in a minute. All you needed was to go through that final interview, go past that last month of pregnancy, complete that final exam in college! The list is there, you know it all.

As the boy was walking to Jesus to collect his deliverance, the devil had his last show planned. Surely he would not give up easily. “He threw him down, and tare him.” Ever heard of the last kick of a dying horse? It is fierce and powerful, if you
dodge it you are safe for good! The devil tried to show that he was in control and scare everyone around into submission.

Jesus was calm, confident in the authority He had. He rebuked the unclean spirit and healed the child and delivered him to his father. Today I have a message for you, don’t be scared of the last minute attempts of the devil to keep you away from your
miracle. You will pass that final interview and get that job, you will graduate with that degree, you will hold that baby in your hands!

Today stand in the authority that Jesus gave you and rebuke the unclean spirits trying to manipulate your moment of breakthrough. Don’t be a cry baby, rebuke now! I pray for you that your moment of breakthrough is not postponed by the devil’s scare tactics.

Declare this,
My moment has come, I will not be set back anymore! I walk in authority and take hold of my miracle!

THE POWER OF DESIRE

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (Luke 16:20-21 KJV)

People often say that ‘what will be will be.’ This often true for those who accept their circumstances as their fate but throughout scripture, we see people who changed things in their lives through pure determination. There is power in desire! What you desire in life is often fulfilled whether it is positive or negative!

The story of Lazarus told by our Lord Jesus is full of lessons including the salient one on desire. Lazarus was a beggar and was daily laid at the gate of the rich man, he was full of sores. There was nothing wrong with his state of affairs but there is everything wrong with where he applied one of the most powerful forces in this world- his desire! He focused it on being fed by the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table.

The word desire means to set the heart upon, to long for or to covet a thing. Lazarus set his heart on crumbs and for sure, day in and day out he got the crumbs that fell from the table. He competed with the dogs for them and he emerged the winner every time, all the dogs could do was lick his sores.

Desire will change the game plan, it will get results everyday without fail! When Abraham desired a son, though there was a delay, at hundred years he held him in his hands. His faith jumped mountains, it conquered the impossible to get the son of his desire even when his wife was ninety years.

What is your desire? Everyone has desires but others desire more than others whilst others desire less than others. This is what separates the rich and the poor, the educated and the less educated! This separates those who sit at the table and those who eat the crumbs falling from it. If Lazarus desired to sit at the table of the rich man, his desire would have been fulfilled. If he desired to own the rich man’s table, his desire would have been fulfilled. If he desired to be the rich man, his story would completely be different.

What is your desire today? Refuse to be at the bottom of the ladder, make your desire see you at the top of the ladder. Dream big, many are at the bottom of society because their dreams are small. In whatever you do, refuse to be at the bottom of it! Desire to be at the top of that game and it will bring you fame. The word says in all labour there is profit (Pro 14:23).

I pray for you today that you find new avenues for your positive desires to be fulfilled. I pray today that I meet you at the top, the bottom is too crowded!

Declare this,
I liberate myself from poverty. I unleash my desire for greater things in life. With the help of the Holy Spirit I am headed for the top!

GOD’S RULE PREVAILS


Though the cherry trees don’t blossom and the strawberries don’t ripen, Though the apples are worm-eaten and the wheat fields stunted, Though the sheep pens are sheepless and the cattle barns empty, I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. (Habakkuk 3:17-18 MSG)

Are you going through hardships? Give Praise to God! Are you feeling like you have reached the end of the line and one more thing will cause the fall? Give Praise to God! There is power in praising God and throughout scripture we see the mystery and power of praise unveiled!

When the children of God praise Him, He immediately acts on their behalf. Praise provokes God into action. In scripture we see armies falling when God’s children praise! We see prison doors shaken and broken when God’s children ignore the pain and open their mouths and praise the God of the Angel Armies!

Have you planted and worms attacked your harvest leaving you in debt? Did you work and your remuneration never came? Have you built something expecting it to bring about a profit and it stands there like an empty monument with no production at all? The prophet Habakkuk was in that place before: the cherry trees didn’t blossom and the strawberries didn’t ripen. His harvest was stunted and everything was failing. Yet in all this, he sang joyful praises to God! It wasn’t easy, but in the difficulty he praised!

Even though there is every reason to complain and murmur all around you today: Give Him praise! Praise Him in the morning when you wake up, praise Him at noonday and praise Him in the evening! When there seem to be no reason to praise, there are many things you can praise Him for. Praise Him for the eyes that see that things are wrong! Praise Him for the mind that can still think. Praise Him for the nose that can still draw air into your lungs! There is just so much to praise Him for. When you praise, He will get into action on your behalf!

Are you sick today? Praise Him! Are you broke with no idea where the next meal is going to come from? Praise Him! God will respond to your praise, He is ready to do more for you.

I pray for you that as you go through that difficult situation that you start seeing a change of story coming into your life. I pray that your weeping ends and that joy comes soon in your life.

Declare this,
In my pain, loss, hardship and grief I choose to praise Him. I am turning in cartwheels of joyful praise to my Savior God. My breakthrough is imminent in Jesus’ name!

YOUR SITUATION NEEDS A STRONG HAND


Look! Listen! God’s arm is not amputated—he can still save. God’s ears are not stopped up—he can still hear. (Isaiah 59:1 (MSG)

Life’s challenges need a strong hand for a permanent solution. At times world solutions refuse to work but we have a God who is privy to every kind of situation.
He is experienced and is able to provide a permanent solution.

What are you going through today? God’s arm is not amputated. It is the same hand that delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt. It is this same hand that provided them with food in the desert! He is ready today to stretch His hand towards your situation. Will you take time to ask him to intervene right now?

He can save today, that’s why His name is Saviour. He can work a miracle in that financial situation and that physical challenge. Summon Him today, He will leap over mountains to make things possible for you.

His ears are not stopped up, He can hear! Call on Him and He will incline His ear to hear. He is not like the dumb idols others worship that neither see nor hear. He loves you as a dear child, He also loves your children just as you love them and is delighted to turn things around in their life.

I pray for you today that you may be a witness of God’s miracle working power in your life. Where discouragement was setting in May His hand bring encouragement.

Declare this,
Every difficult and seemingly impossible SITUATION in my life bows to GOD’S POWER now! Be it health, Financial, relationships, loss! Whatever it is, I believe GOD is on it!

GOD CAN READ A LETTER


Open your ears, God, and listen, open your eyes and look. Look at this letter Sennacherib has sent, a brazen insult to the living God! (2 Kings 19:16 MSG)

Hezekiah was one of a kind king in the lineage of David. Most of his predecessors had lost the ways of God but when he came into power, he destroyed standing altars that were dedicated to other gods. He started putting reforms in the kingdom that brought the presence of God back.

The enemy however is always looking for an opportunity to throw spanners in any good thing and soon enough, the king of Assyria was setting up to bring Hezekiah and the kingdom down. As he constantly resisted, the Assyrian king sent him a letter. As a man who knew God, Hezekiah took the letter and spread it out before God in the temple and he prayed to God of the Angel Armies.

Child of God, I want to encourage you today that our God has ears and He hears! He has eyes and He sees! He is privy to all that you are going through. Never think that He does not hear your prayers nor see your situation. Take courage today to approach His throne boldly and lay your petition before Him without fear!

God can read that doctor’s report, He can see those pilling bills! God can read the demands in your post box from your creditors. Take a step today and bring the petition to Him and you will be a witness to His miraculous power. Where you seem to have no help, God Himself is your help and Has stationed His Angel Armies to act on your behalf.

Hezekiah did not need to fight against the king of Assyria, God Himself slaughtered thousands of his army. Embarrassed, he went back to his land where he was killed by his own children. This is your season to shine and every threat to that is abolished far from your life right now.

I pray for you that you find strength in this season to continue looking up to God. Whatever situation you are facing right now is in God’s full view and He will come through for you.

Declare this,
My God can read, see and hear. My situation is in His full view today and I receive my deliverance from every plan of the enemy in Jesus’ name!
