Staying On Faithland!

There was a priest named Zachariah, and his wife Elizabeth, is from the lineage of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the SIGHT of God, observing all the Lords’s commands and decrees blamelessly. BUT they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. Luke 1:5-7.

What happened here? How can a couple with such a resume be fruitless? They were righteous in the sight of God and yet childless! Did God not say the fruit of the womb was a reward?

Psalms 127:3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offsprings a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Did God deliberately shut Elizabeth’s womb? Why would God withheld His reward till they were very old?

God had special plan for them. His reward was John, who is predestined to be the Lord’s forerunner.

Friends, please note that delay is not denial!. When you pray, and it seem your prayers are not been answered, be persistent and be filled with gratitude! Absolutely!! Gratitude because the Lord is making a special, one in a lifetime, custom made miracle just for you.

Whatever you have been asking the Lord for and it seems not forthcoming is going to show up if you keep believing and living the word!

Do not allow mockery of the wicked to discourage you.  I remember when I got married, a sister in law was unto me, pestering me, like you should do this and that. This was three months into living together. The intrusion made me to start worrying, until I was told she waited for eight years before she had her first child.

Why pester me then I thought? It’s a ploy by Satan to unsettle you with fear, doubt and the likes, thereby delaying the manifestation of the Lord’s promises! Reject the invite to worryland! Stay on faith lane!

Waiting period is a test of your faith, and loyalty to God. Zechariah continued serving the Lord regardless of his status. And in due time, the Lord gave him a miracle like no other, John the baptist.

Pray without ceasing – 1 Thessalonians 5:17, be expectant, and be prepared to take hold of your miracle.

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Walking In Your Purpose!!

He said to me, only in your eyes! What? Only in your eyes do you see yourself small, powerless, and with no effect. Why do you think there’s so much hindrances on your path? Why the resistance?

If only you will see yourself from your adversaries point of view. You are a threat, an uncontainable force! You are doing good baby! In the face of all time restrictions you are delivering my message quite well!

You are working in your calling as a voice, you are crying in the wilderness, preparing the way for my anointed ones, those that will worship in truth and spirit, submerged in my essence, washed and filled up by my spirit!

You can do better though with more love, patience, understanding, compassion, courage, humility, and trust in me! I will accomplish much more in you, with you, and through you than you can ever imagine.

I am the Lord and I change not! Trust and obey my every word. You must forgive and let go of all the junks you are holding on to. It is slowing you down. Refocus your gaze!

See, my love, provision is waiting for you at the appointed place. You need to get there! Whenever you are ready, I will lead you there! Make haste though for time wait for no one!

Loving you, eternity unending!

Your Spiritman!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

What Has The Lord Said? To You!

It has been said to me, that I am a city set upon a hill that cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
It has been said to me, that I will not die but live to declare the works of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 118:17
It has been said to me, to remain confident of this, that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Radiant Glory Of Love

Romans 4: 18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Just as it had been said to him, just as it had been said to them, just as it had been said to you, just as it had been said to me! What has just been said to you Joan? What has the Lord Said?

Faith, Trust, And Assurance!

Zechariah 4:6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. The Lord has spoken once, twice you should hear, power belongs unto the Lord – Psalms 62:11. The power that raised Christ from the dead is available to quicken you to accomplish all that the Lord has purposed for you.

Do you have faith in God friends?

seek the LordHow great is your faith in the promises of God for your life as contained in the scripture? Joel 2: 26, for example, says “And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.” How deep do you believe this promise?

Manoah in the book of Judges had a wife who was not able to give birth as stated in Chapter 13. One day, out of the blues His wife came and told him about a visitation from a man giving them a promise of a son. The man came to Manoah’s wife but not him, yet when Manoah went to the Lord in prayer, it was not about God confirming His word by the mouth of two or three. He was…

A Time Like This!

A-time-like-this-Pastor-Joel-WellsA few years ago I received Isaiah 28:24-29, and prior to that I had received countless that I could not make sense of. I knew it was particular to me, my situation and issues of life, but I did not understand the depth thereof. I sought for understanding and laid it aside when none was forthcoming. And now I am been prompted to take a look at this closely!

Isaiah 28:24-29

Listen and hear my voice;
    pay attention and hear what I say.
24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually?
    Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil?
25 When he has leveled the surface,
    does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin?
Does he not plant wheat in its place,
    barley in its plot,
    and spelt in its field?
26 His God instructs him
    and teaches him the right way.

27 Caraway is not threshed with a sledge,
    nor is the wheel of a cart rolled over cumin;
caraway is beaten out with a rod,
    and cumin with a stick.
28 Grain must be ground to make bread;
    so one does not go on threshing it forever.
The wheels of a threshing cart may be rolled over it,
    but one does not use horses to grind grain.
29 All this also comes from the Lord Almighty,
    whose plan is wonderful,
    whose wisdom is magnificent.

 

The Church, your family, your world needs you at a time like this!!

When the Lord woke me up this morning with a thought so strong in my heart, I was glad, yet disturbed. What will come of this I thought? What and how am I going to accomplish this? Then I read my devotion in the Open Heavens by Pastor E. A. Adeboye and I was like Lord, why are you doing this to me? The Lord is saying, and I believe to all, He is at work in us to will and to act in order for His good works to be fulfilled in us – Philippians 2:13.

He has bestowed on us His Holy Spirit to work diverse works. 1 Corinthians 12:There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

The Lord is saying to you and I that He has been working within us, preparing, and equipping us for tasks He want us to do – Ephesians 2:10. Enough of our doing the same thing over and over, wasting time in disobedience. Now is the time to step out, step forward, to do what needs to be done.

Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land; 20 but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken. Enough of resisting the Lord friends, you cannot win or change His mind. Open your mouth He said and He will fill it up. Open your mouth and the words are right there! Psalms 81:10 I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. 

It is not that we don’t know where that need is in our life, family, organization, Church, our community, and the world. We do know, but refuse to take action waiting we say for the appropriate time and place when we should be working out our faith. We also have been prepared; for life’s situations have been preparing us for such a time like this. In Verse 24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil? This is the time to sow! Now is the time to speak, let your voice ring out loud and clear. The appointed time to reveal the heart of the matter! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
