HAVE YOU WAITED?

Shepherd's Desk

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 KJV)

Today’s generation can be labeled as one that is impatient. We find it hard to wait or give something it’s proper time leading to fulfillment. This makes it hard if not impossible to act in faith. Many ask, how long must I wait for my breakthrough? Abraham is a perfect example of how long one may wait upon the Lord. At 100 years, he received his son.

The generation will move from one prophet to another, from one church to another and at times even mixing with some traditional things which are not pleasing in the sight of the Lord. This not only makes the period for a miracle longer but is also dangerous! It brings more confusion to one than good.

The word from the Prophet Isaiah is clear, ‘they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.’ The word renew is to spring up, to be rejuvenated! That is what the presence of God does. The longer you stay, the more and more strength you receive. As you wait, you will mount up with wings as eagles. This means an effortless life as the winds of the Spirit propel you forward. The promise is that you will run and not be weary. There are so many things that can make one tired in this day and age. The challenges of life can be overwhelming but wait on the Lord and you will run and not grow weary. He promises that they shall walk and not faint. These promises will work for those who are ready to wait on the Lord.

Are you facing a challenge? Wait on Him as you continue to praise Him. The enemy might come and tell you all sorts of things, present a solid front in your faith. Do not seek other means for a solution, hold on to His sure word which doesn’t fail. It might seem to take time, but to God a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like a day. Having done all to stand, stand therefore!

He is forever faithful and will not abandon those who wait and believe in His word. He is sure to come through for you. Daniel waited for Him in fasting and prayer until his answer came with a revelation that the devil was after stealing and delaying his answer. Don’t give up too early,tell the devil even if it takes a thousand years, I will wait on the Lord!

I pray for you that as you face that challenge, may you see God’s hand in a special way. I declare that your time for an answer has come as you exercise your faith!

Declare this,
I will continue to present a solid front. I refuse for the enemy to intimidate me as I hold on to His promises. My strength is renewed, I mount I run and I walk effortlessly.

COVENANT KEEPING GOD

My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. (Psalms 89:34 KJV)

One of the songs I enjoy singing is the one that says, “Covenant keeping God, there is no one like you. Alpha and Omega, there is no one like you.” Surely, there is no one who compares to God when it comes to adhering to promises or any other thing. Man will give you a promise only to break it before closing his mouth, but God sticks by His word! Others are in the habit of adjusting the promise but not our God, He is not moved by the climate or economy for He rules and controls all these things.

Jesus came with a mission to give life and to destroy the works of the devil. The word clearly tells us in John 10:10 that Jesus came that we might have life in abundance. There has not been an adjustment to this despite all the attempts of the devil against your life. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8). He does not change!

You might be battling a financial situation, a sickness that seems not to go away, a stressed relationship, I want to assure you today that He is a covenant keeping God. Do not give up, He will not break His covenant with you. He will not alter the things that He has spoken. As a child of God there are promises that are made and fulfilled to you in Christ Jesus. Your part is to know these and walk with conviction on your side of the covenant. Don’t allow the enemy to deceive you and take you out of your inheritance.

I know today that things will turn for your good as you trust in Him. He will cause things to look the right way and transform your world and you will view it in a way you never did before. Just allow Him today to do what He does best; keeping covenant! Your part is to trust Him and you will surely see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Your life will make a turn around your enemies will be amazed!

Yes, He hears prayer! Yes, He understands your needs and is ready to meet them before you even ask but faith is part of the covenant. You must walk in faith, not wavering but totally convinced that the One who promised will do it.

I pray for you today that your hands will grasp the promises that seemed so far away. He will do it because He is a covenant keeping God.

Declare this,
I am God’s beloved child, He is a covenant keeping God. He does not alter the words that have gone out of His lips. Today I choose to walk in faith standing on God’s promises.

YOU HAVE SPECIAL DNA!

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4 KJV)

The moment you give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, in you is transmitted the DNA of God. This makes you a world overcomer through faith. Let’s put this in context, everyone in the world is potentially God’s child but one must be born again, make a decision to receive Christ for him or her to be born of God and be able to exercise faith.

For the believer, God Has done everything that He must do for your victory. The word world here is the Greek word kosmos which means the world and its systems and functions. Remember by His word God spoke the world into existence, it was not an accident as some would say. God is saying in his word that you already hold the power to overcome anything that is in the world. Your key however is the exercise of faith. This part God can not do for you.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1). Faith eliminates doubt from the mind and gives one the ability to command situations just as our Father would do. Holding God’s DNA, you can speak to that sickness to go. You can speak to that poverty to go. All these things must obey you! You can stand in faith and receive the blessing of Abraham just as God promised. You can stand in life as a commander and overcome all sorts of wickedness the devil would want to level against you.

Many believers fail to reach the promises of God because of ignorance and sometimes misinformation. This is why the Bible is an important component of every believer’s walk in life. When you read it, you are made aware of your rights. When you meditate on it, you receive revelation that strengthens your faith.

Today I want you to know that God has made you a world overcomer. Through His love for you, there is no reason for you to go through all that trouble and fear. He wants you to make it no matter your location or your race. He Has already put victory inside you over every situation. I pray for you that you come to a place where you begin to exercise your God given rights through faith.

Declare this,
Victory is mine in Christ Jesus. I am a world overcomer because I carry His DNA in me. Today I choose to exercise my faith leading me to victory.

ALL THINGS ARE YOURS

For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). (2 Peter 1:3 AMP)

As a child of God, there are things that you need to understand concerning what happened between the cross and the throne. God holds divine power which in turn He gave to us His children. This power which is at work inside us has bestowed or given us all things that are requisite and suited to life and godliness.

There is a part that you need to play and that is bringing yourself into the full knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. You may ask how do I do this? It is through the study and meditation of the word of God. Knowledge requires one to commit time to studying something. It is not attained just by being in an environment where the books are or in a library! You actually have to dig in and read the books for the knowledge to transfer from the books to you.

The Bible is the written word of God, through reading and meditating on it, you bring yourself to a full understanding of Him. This then brings you to the fullness of understanding of the work of His divine power in you. The knowledge of Him brings you to deeper understanding of your rights in Him. Many believers are going through life limited as to the things God has intended for them. This can mostly be attributed to the knowledge of the word they have allowed to work in them.

You can not depend on the knowledge of your pastor, prophet, evangelist or apostle. Their duty is to help in the impartation of knowledge and this resulting in you having a deeper and personal knowledge of Him resulting in the working of His promises in you. You have access to the God kind of life here on earth! You can walk in this divine life which experiences no lack of resources and vitality. This knowledge can place you in a position in which you walk in godliness, overcoming all form of sin and temptation.

I pray for you that you may come to the place of full knowledge of Him causing His divine power to work in you. May fullness of life and godliness abound in you in Jesus’ name.

Declare this,
I choose to embrace knowledge by committing myself to study and meditation of His word. Through this I access The life and godliness bestowed on me by His divine power.
