EXPLOITS THROUGH FAITH (PART 8)

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: thencame Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. (John 20:26 KJV)

They had shut the doors to ensure no one came in from outside. There were too many pressures, Jesus had just died and the memories of the cross were still fresh in their minds. They could be next on the line of death if they were not careful.

Jesus came in, the doors being shut and stood with them! What a glorious thing Jesus did on that day. If you only believe, you will see the glory of the Lord. He defied the power of locks and bolts. He defied doors and walked in! This is good news for you today. Ignore the doors that were locked as there is a capacity in you to walk through those doors as demonstrated by our Lord here. What we see the Master do we must also do. There are doors in your life that were stubbornly sealed; I want to emphasize today, WALK THROUGH THEM even in their state of closure! Don’t wait for the day they will open. That door of disease that bolted you away from your health, walk through it, that door of poverty that kept you in fear and confusion, walk through it!

On His arrival, Jesus announced peace. He is the Man of Peace who brings order where chaos reigned. He imposes tranquility in situations of pandemonium. He will calm your storm today because you are a believer in His capability. At one time the disciples were panicking in the boat because of the storm which had arisen and they woke Jesus up. He spoke, “Peace be still,” (Matt 4:39). His all potent words resulted in the wind ceasing and so great was the serenity resulting. Jesus asked them why they were so fearful lacking faith. The presence of faith thwarts fear and doubt. It will cause the believer to be confident even when the situation seems unforgiving.

March forward today because you can! Chin high, chest out and hands in your pocket! The walls ahead are just a mirage when measured against the Word of God. The closed doors are just passing shadows. You carry inside you the One who defied the doors and walls, showing up in a place where others were locked away.

Declare this,
I AM MARCHING FORWARD! I defy every door that has been keeping me away from God’s promises. I arise in the power of the Holy Spirit for great exploits.

EXPLOITS THROUGH FAITH (PART 7)

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. (John 20:27 KJV)

Faith puts you in a season of unprecedented miracles signs and wonders. As you believe in an unusual manner, God will come through for you in unusual ways.

Thomas is known today as the doubting Thomas. This characteristic of doubt was apparent when the other disciples saw the risen Christ in his absence. When they related the encounter to him, he said he would not believe without seeing. After eight days, Jesus entered the room which was locked by the way but He showed up. I don’t care what has locked you in, Jesus is showing up. There is no place in which He is denied access.

Thomas’ faith was fragile and frail- it was sense knowledge faith. It needed to see, to feel, to reach out in the physical for it to find satisfaction. Jesus rebuked him, “be not faithless but believing.” Despise the Thomas kind of faith and reach out for the pure faith that believes on the Word. Faith that anchors fully on what the Word has said and doesn’t wait for the satisfaction of the senses!

I launch you into a season loaded with the ability to bring transformation and change. I position you for exploits and I know that the Lord who has begun a great work in you will finish it in this season.

Ephesians 3:20 tells us that our God is loaded with the ability to exceed our wildest imaginations in prayer according to the power that is at work inside us. Hallelujah that power is inside you! You must carry it this month into your job, business, family, university and school.

I speak into your life right now, that El Shaddai God will load your life with miracle surprises in this season. Those that were gathering against you are gathering to scatter. Every plan against you is losing its implementer. You are emerging a sure victor with all the spoil. I cancel every contract signed that linked you to lack, confusion, poverty, fear, disease and death. I break that umbilical code that linked you to the kingdom of the enemy. Your faith is triumphing and yes, you are marching forward!

Declare this,
I raise my expectations for that which far above my imaginations. Today choose to doubt my doubts and embrace God’s word.

EXPLOITS THROUGH FAITH (PART 6)

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb 12:2 KJV

Download audio version - From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

The position of your focus determines the progression of your story. Faith demands for one to focus on a constant object and the world we live in is never constant. Surrendering your focus on the world and its events means that you will never have a moment of rest.

The writer of Hebrews points us to Jesus, the chief leader, captain and the consummator of our faith. He faced the cross which had shame in it but He chose to ignore the gory details of the cross and chose rather to look at the joy that was after the cross. He chose to despise the shame associated with dying on the cross but rather focussed on the results of it all. Today, He is gloriously sitting at the right hand of the throne of God, a sign of victory over all the work of His enemies.

As you move forward in faith, there are times were taking a stand of faith might mean shame and pain. Well, the captain of our faith has shown us the example. Shift your eyes from the chaos and focus on Jesus. He is a constant; focusing on Him will assure you of joy in the midst of the chaos. Peace will accompany you in the midst of the storm.

You will produce results because of faith. Don’t allow the challenges around you to snub you of the prize of your faith. There is rest ahead for those who endure in faith. Whatsoever is born of God is victorious over the world and faith is that victory that conquers the world (1 John 5:4). Unleash your faith on stubborn circumstances as you keep your eyes on Jesus.

That business is turning around because of faith, that disease has lost its power over you as you shift your focus from it to the Captain and completer of your faith! That marriage is turning around for your good. The elusive is becoming an easy find for you. Faith pleases God and today it is positioning you in His presence.

Declare this,
I am receiving my results because of faith. I fix my eyes on Jesus and refuse to allow the circumstances around me to snub me of the prize of my faith.

EXPLOITS THROUGH FAITH (PART 5)

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

…men who, as the result of faith, conquered whole kingdoms, brought about true justice, obtained promises from God, stopped lions’ mouths, deprived fire of its power, escaped being killed by the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put to flight foreign armies. (Heb 11:33-34 WNT)

Faith is not like the currencies of the nations that change their value from time to time and from place to place. The worth of is inestimable in every nation. With it is the ability to unlock any situation. Faith has always been God’s way- His method and technique which He has extended to us his children to operate in his very league.

Scripture tells us, “With God all things are possible (Matt 19:26).” As the light of this revelation becomes brighter in you, you will see it, “Only believe and all things are possible to him that believes (Mark 9:23).” Faith is a method of Deity and coming into the life of faith is transformational- it raises one to a level of operation as of the Father.

Hebrews shows us that some of the Old Testament folk plugged into this life of faith and they were never the same. They pulled off tremendous feats through faith but they never got the fulfilment of the great promise- the Messiah Christ Jesus.

From the history of faith, we perceive that it conquers whole kingdoms, it brings about true justice, it obtains promises from God, and it stops the mouths of lions. When Daniel was thrown into that den of lions, he was so full of faith it evoked a wall of protection around him. By faith, thrown in the fire, they deprived fire of its power. This fire that was heated seven times over but faith penetrated it and held the power of fire captive. This is strong! Faith dispossessed fire of its power. Faith gave escapes from death by the sword. Faith touched those that were weak and they made comebacks and becoming mighty in war they put foreign armies to flight. Every foreign army that was invading you is going down today!

Faith is a multipurpose weapon, an instrument that is precise in its implementation. It snatches victory from the jaws of defeat. It turns a death bed into a starting point. It redefines what is known as reality. It operates in the order of deity with supernatural results all the time.

Today, you can operate this instrument called faith over your situation. You can employ faith over that marriage and job; you can evoke it over that business. Let faith be the precision instrument of the surgeon to remove that cancer. Let faith pin point that virus in your body and eliminate it. Let faith turn things around in your life and bring about unfathomable victories. Faith places you in a higher order of victory.

Declare this,
From today, I will walk by faith and not by sight!
