YOU ARE BORN OF GOD

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

“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)

Do you desire to overcome the world and its systems? To rise above the limitations imposed by the enemy over how much we can achieve in this world? Well, if you are born again, this comes as part of the package! For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. This is made possible by the faith that is given to us upon salvation. When you get born again, you become a new creature. God breathes new life into you and recreates your spirit man. This faith puts you above the world and its systems. You begin to function as one who is seated together with Jesus in the heavenly places.

Many fail to comprehend this truth because they are preoccupied with world matters or they are completely deceived by the enemy they can’t see the value they carry as believers. You need to awaken from the slumber, study the word to see who you have become in Christ. Never allow the enemy to teach you anything that is outside God’s word even if through your prophet or pastor. This will just blow you away from what God has created you to be here on earth.

You are born of God! You were born again not of corruptible seed but incorruptible! It was by the word of truth (1 Peter 1:23). The word of God lives and abides forever. When you stack yourself on the word of God, you are bound to succeed in all that you do here on earth. When struggles come you have a force within you that kicks in. That force is faith. Those not in the Lord will never understand this force!

You are not limited by the economy or the circumstances in which you were born. When you come on God’s side you have access to great riches of wisdom and knowledge. This will catapult you above those who were in better circumstances. As a believer, choose to strengthen your faith through prayer, study of the word and listening to teaching of the word. Of course there are some teachings that are off course, avoid these and focus on teachings that are in line with God’s word.

You are born of God, this qualifies you as a son and you can call God your Father. Jesus made this possible by dying on the cross and defeating the enemy. He recovered that which Adam lost in the garden and became our Savior from the shackles of the enemy. Never fear the enemy because you have been elevated above him. He has no power over you. If you are not born again, you are depriving yourself of a greater life here on earth and life after death. Make a decision to be born again.

I pray for you today that you awaken to the reality of your salvation. That being born again, you have not remained ordinary but you have been admitted into God’s sonship and the sins you committed before are erased.

Declare this,
I confess with my lips that Jesus is Lord. I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I embrace my sonship and challenge myself to dig deeper in understanding my position as a born again child of God.

PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Peter 1:4 KJV)

Download audio version

Did you know there are different levels of life? There are those who are walking in this world with no knowledge of their origin and no understanding of the Creator. They have no knowledge of the Holy. Then there are those who have mastered life through knowledge and wisdom given by the Father. This has been made available to everybody but many are not partakers because they have not availed themselves to the Father.

We are not talking about church attendance here but giving yourself wholly to the Lord and searching His word and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you. Apostle Peter clearly tells us that we have been given exceeding, great and precious promises. To be given is one thing and receiving the gift is another. Many are ignorant of the promises and hence can’t enjoy their benefit. Through these promises, a door was opened for us to be partakers of the divine nature.

This is deep, the word partakers also means participators. Adam in the garden carried the divine nature. He fellowshipped with God and was carrying the image and likeness of God. This is until the enemy came and deceived him and took the authority he already had. Deception is bad, the devil promised Adam what he already had and he fell for it. He left mankind and the seed of Adam in a dunghill. Thank God for His grace, a plan was already at hand and that was to send His only son to die for us and take back the power. He became the sacrificial lamb. When John the Baptist saw Him, he said, “Behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.” Now the enemy continues with deception, he doesn’t want people to know that they can move from oppression to freedom as the price was already paid on the cross!

We as God’s children are partakers of the divine nature! We escaped corruption that is in the world through lust. The divine nature ensures that we walk here on earth carrying the nature and fullness of God. We hold answers for this world. Have you not heard that creation awaits the manifestation of the sons of God? Don’t let the devil deceive you into feeling useless and powerless! He is a liar! You participate in the divine nature. Rise up and do something amazing! Miracles should be common in your life. The supernatural realm should be your natural realm just like the Father who breathed new life into you when you got born again!

I pray for you that you come to a full understanding of who you are in Christ. May your spiritual eyes be opened so that you may participate fully in the divine nature, living above the corruption of this world!

Declare this,
I hold great and precious promises which have granted me access into being a partaker of the divine nature. I refuse to allow words, whispers and situations to downgrade me to the deception of the enemy. I am free from shackles of disease, worldly lusts, fear and confusion. I live in the supernatural, above the natural realm!

MY CASE IS DIFFERENT

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: (Ephesians 1:3 KJV)

Download audio version

As believers in Christ, our case is always different. We can not be drawn into comparison with what those that are not born again experience. However, it is important for one to know their rights in the court of heaven and in life to effectively experience the life God intended for them. It is sad to see many Christians perish for lack of knowledge which starts by ignorance of God’s word and following heretical teachings which are not in the word of God.

As we are in Christ we are blessed with every spiritual blessing by the Father. Never let the enemy make you accept anything lesser. Spiritual is above natural. What man fail to do for you, God can do it and it is important that through prayer and relationship with Him you continue escalating issues to Him. If He gave Christ His only begotten son, there is nothing He withholds from you. Instead the enemy and his lies makes you wander in a wilderness of lack of knowledge where he can easily deter you and make you accept things you should not.

As a son or daughter of Abraham, you have been blessed with every spiritual blessing. This means you have access to higher power than you ever imagined. You have to put this power to work. When you do, the world around you will notice that surely your case is different!

When Abraham received the blessing, it put Him on a level of faith where nothing was impossible. At hundred years he had a son whilst Sarah the wife was ninety years old. His case was surely different. He did not consider the deadness of Sarah womb (Romans 4). When the blessing rested on the early apostles, they could perform miracles hard to imagine, their case was different. When MARY received the blessing, she could conceive without the seed of a man and gave birth to the Messiah. With the blessing resting on you, there are great feats you can accomplish in life, business, academics and research. You can be a trail blazer in your area! Indeed your case should be different because you carry the spiritual blessing! God’s DNA!

I pray for you today that you awaken to the blessing resting on you. May you see that indeed your case is different despite the arguments the enemy tries to put against you.

Declare this,
My case is different! I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. I release myself from the yoke of lack of knowledge as I seek the word of God for deeper understanding of what I can accomplish as a child of God. I refuse to settle for crumbs when I should be feasting at the table of His grace.

SEEK HIS FACE

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.” (Psalms 27:8 KJV)

Download audio version

The word seek is a deep word, in the original Hebrew it is defined as “strive after: — ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure, (make) request, require, seek (for).” When the Lord spoke to David and gave the instruction, “Seek ye my face.” He answered that his “heart” said your face I will seek.

Look, seeking the Lord and building a strong bond with Him is a heart issue! It is not religious acts or natural things that one would do to try and please the Lord. It is a condition of the heart! The heart must strive after Him. He is so near but yet so far. He will not reveal Himself just like that, He wants more of you so He can reveal more of Himself! You have to ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure, make request and require, that is to seek for Him. The whole issue occupies your heart and you become like one who is pregnant with this desire.

Daniel 9:3 the prophet records that he took time to seek the Lord with prayers and fasting. It is chasing after Him and a deep desire to see His face. If you do that, you will hear His voice! It will be loud and clear! He will not invest Himself in one who is busy with other things but seeking His face.

Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” The number one thing He requires of us is seeking Him and His kingdom and His righteousness. The things that we occupy ourselves with should be secondary, God easily adds them to us. His word to you today is SEEK ME TILL YOU FIND ME! Invest your time effort and heart in it. You can’t rig this one because He reads and knows your heart.

I pray for you that you awaken your heart to seeking His face, His kingdom and His righteousness. May you come to a place where your heart yearns after Him only. The things of the world must lose their power and authority over you so that your heart is released to find Him.

Declare this,
Lord I know you are near yet so far but today I choose to let my heart focus on seeking your face. I abandon all other vein pursuits that have no eternal value. I want you Lord, I want more of you!

LIGHT OF THE WORLD

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.” (Psalms 36:9 KJV)

Download audio versionMany go around ignorant of the reason, purpose and source of life. You will find a lot of complacency amongst people and unfortunately even amongst believers. The Psalmist was clear on the source of life, he declares, “For with thee is the fountain of life.” Look, you need to connect yourself to the fountain of life for you to live life meaningfully and with purpose. When the fountain is missing, it means you are groping in darkness and soon it will all end without reason or fruitfulness.

The Fountain of Life is God the Father Himself. “In thy light shall we see light.” I mentioned above that one can spend their life groping in darkness. The Psalmist shows us here that when we connect to God the Father through Christ our Redeemer, in His light shall we see light! If you are not in His light, you will see no light, you are in darkness. If you are in His light, darkness has no portion in you. For where light appears, darkness immediately disappears. There is no contest between light and darkness.

You probably wonder why your life seems to go around in circles. Ask yourself, “Am I in the light?” Do I seek Him as I should or I follow all sorts of other things? His light is revelation! For you to key into His revelation it is going to be through the Word of God! Not another man as we all prophesy in part. Study the Word of God for yourself and escape the darkness that will keep you in all sorts of challenges. Revelation clears your path meaning that your business, family, marriage, job and spiritual journey will bask in the light of His glory!

When Abraham came into this light, all the generations after him basked in the glory of it. You too can make a decision today to pursue after God and His fullness. It will change your life and affect the generations that come after you. Jesus awaits your coming into this light. Allow your life to be driven by the revelation of who God is and what He has made you to be.

I pray for you that you may find it in your heart to seek first the kingdom of God. To seek His face till you find Him. He is so near but yet so far but today begin that journey into His light through His Word.

Declare this
I move deeper into the light and revelation of God. In His light I will begin to see light and I will not go around in darkness anymore. I thank you Lord for providing a way for me through Christ.
