ANOTHER COMFORTER

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3:13-14 KJV)

The Greek word translated Comforter here is paraklētos; an intercessor, consoler: — advocate! When Jesus left earth to go and take His place at the right hand of the Father in Heaven, He did not leave us helpless. Jesus Himself was a great Comforter, healing and delivering those that were in pain even raising the dead. When His work was done, He to the Father to give us the Holy Spirit, He addresses Him as another Comforter!

The Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity and when one receives Him, He comes and dwells inside you! To give you direction and protection, help you pray and advocating for you in various situations.

I write today on this Easter remembering our families that experienced the deepest of pain in Southern Africa owing to cyclone Idai. I pray the Holy Spirit the Comforter touches each and everyone of us and bring comfort in the midst of the pain. Our God restores that which was lost. I also pray for those on the ground leading by example to help restore hope to those who had given up.

Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, He is with us to bring comfort and assurance. May this be your experience today no matter what you are going through. Things might be very hard but take a moment and kneel down and say, “Holy Spirit fill me. Comfort me in this situation.” When you open the door for Him with your words, He is delighted to come into your situation.

Southern Africa will be great again because God is with us. Never fear nor be dismayed. Comfort is ours because we have the Comforter with us.

Declare this,

Father thank you for giving us another Comforter. We are able to endure every situation because we do not stand alone, we have heaven’s representation in us in the form of the Holy Spirit.

YOU ARE REDEEMED

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3:13-14 KJV)

The word redeemed means to ransom; buying back! Adam in the garden of Eden committed treason and gave over power to the devil opening up demonic portals that brought all sorts of suffering to humanity. You might have heard that we were all born in sin, this being from the Adamic era. We all became slaves to the devil, to command as he pleased. Jesus came not carrying the blood of Adam but that of God this is explained by the virgin birth.

Being king, he humbled Himself and became the son of Man. When the time came, He went about doing good, healing all those that were sick and oppressed by the devil. He brought redemption to human kind and presented us with a choice. To receive Him as Lord or remain under the shackles of the enemy. Being driven by love, He wants all of us to experience salvation.

He took the curse for us when he was crucified fulfilling the prophesy that says ‘cursed is he that hangs on a tree.’ The Blessing Of Abraham had to be released to everyone including Gentiles and this was accomplished on the cross through Jesus Christ. I want you to understand today that He brought all good things and the enemy, the devil of course is the author of everything bad!

It is important that you receive Him as your saviour and believe the work He did on the cross as yours. He loves you so much that if you were the only person on earth He would still have come to redeem you from the hands of the enemy. I want you to know today that the moment you receive Him, you go above all oppression and command of the enemy! You become a new creature under the bloodline of Jesus Christ, this is where the enemy can’t tread.

I pray for you today that you may understand the work that was done at Calvary. That you understand that the redemption He brought you is more powerful than any disease, poverty, oppression or circumstance.

Declare this,

Lord Jesus come into my life. Be the Lord and saviour of my life. I renounce a life of sin and take on the life that Christ brought. Every curse that pursued me is broken and I believe from now on I am a new creature in Christ Jesus!

LABOURING IN PRAYER

From the Shepherd's Desk by Charles Magaiza

Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. (Colossians 4:12 KJV)

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

Prayer is one of the key aspects that distinguishes believers from non believers. Apostle Paul in the above scripture sheds light on how any one of us as a servant of Christ can be effective in this prayer.

There are three things that stand out from this scripture. Prayer is labour, prayer must be fervent and it must consistent. Let’s look at labour; the word itself means hard physical work. We have to deploy our bodies like laborers in the work of prayer. Slothfulness will not yield the final result.

The word fervent means passionate, intense or whole hearted. There is no room for vacillation for it to be effective. You can push a mile further with passion than the one who lacks it! Your heart has to be in it, which is why it cannot be just vain repetitions. When the heart is in, the connection to the Holy Spirit is sure and you will pray with precision led by the Spirit, this will ensure the desired result.

The word consistent means done in same way over time. Jesus is the pure example of this. Even after a big event where miracles happened, He didn’t go to celebrate but went up the mountain to pray to the Father. He was consistent and hence results were evident in His ministry. We must pray when things are good, bad, worse, terrible or in any state. Jesus gave us an example of importunity in prayer when He told us about the woman who went to the judge day in a day out, her message was “avenge me of my enemies.” He was known to be careless and selfish but at some point the widow broke him and he said “ though I fear not God or man but this woman because of her persistence will destroy me.”

Your prayers will be effective from today if you deploy these three mysteries: labouring, fervent and consistent.

Declare this,

Lord help me move from slothfulness to labouring in prayer! Cause the fire of the Holy Spirit to ignite my prayer life into fervency and consistency.
