In any war there are always casualties. May we not be casualties of war, and for those that will be, may they find someone who will not give up on them, someone who will nurse them back to life, someone who will inspire them with the “Will to Live”
That is the phrase I woke up with this morning. In the dream of the night, I saw two factions, a group of military personnel and what seems like civilians, gang members of sort under tension.
In the twinkle of an eye, fight broke out, and some people were caught in the cross fire. I saw body bags in Humvee. To me it seems these bodies are not been helped as much. They were given up on too easily, too soon. One person’s last word was to her mate to take her valuables to pass on to her family as life was slipping off of her and her mate just took the items to pass on without so much as assisting her to stay here.
I went to this body and felt rapid heartbeat and the other body also with life color off, yet with a heart beat. I touched both and spoke thus, “summon up the will to live”! I kept repeating this phrase while touching these two until they both seem to regain color on their faces, one got up and was repeating the phrase, “will to live”! Will To Live! Will To Live!
You can speak life to dead situations around you. The power of life and death is in the tongue. Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
In whatever situation or circumstances, may you receive grace to Will the dead situation in your life back to life. Many a time we give up so easily without a fight, we abandon projects, difficult tasks, hurting relationships, goals, ideas. and the likes. We bury seeds that only need a little scent of water to blossom.
Job 14:7-9 “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. 8 Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, 9 yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
I don’t know where you have been written off, forgotten, or left for dead, I have a message for you, receive life this moment. By the help of the Holy Spirit receive grace and the Will TO LIVE!
The Word says you shall not die but live to exalt the Lord In the land of the living- Psalm 118:17
As long as you are living, and you are fortunate to know the mind of God for your life, let nothing stop you from doing all that you know God wants you to do.
To many times we allow situations and circumstances to steal our time, energy, and resources.
Friends, this very moment is the perfect time to walk the path you know heaven ordained for you before the foundation of the earth was laid.
Apostle Paul is a good example of someone who refused to let situation or circumstances stop him from fulfilling his God given destiny.
Paul was a prisoner yet he kept on walking the path heaven bestowed on him. The thorn in his side could not stop him, neither the many storm and shipwrecks.
Acts 28:16 When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him. … .. 30For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31 Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.
You also can pickup from where you left off 22years ago, 30, 40, or 5 years ago. Pick up your dreams this day and start running with it.
With God, it is never too late, or else you’d be 6 feet under!
Hmmmm! In the very thing in which they boasted, Covid has humbled them!
The World in her entirety is humbled! That is, you and I!
The facts still remains that this season is the best ever for some people.
God is Sovereign!
God works in mysterious ways! Even when the world is set at disarray, God is setting up some people for greatness!
Friends, it is an individual thing! What do you see the Lord doing this season?
Isaac sowed in the land, during famine/ Covid/ distress, and reaped a thousand – Genesis 26:12
What do you see? What do you want to see happening for you, yours, your land and her people? Seek the face of God for your desired results by faith! Put faith to work! Take action! Voila! It is done? By God’s Holy Spirit.
2 Kings 13:14 Now Elisha had been suffering from the illness from which he died.
I am surprised that Elisha, with the double portion of Elijah’s anointing suffered from an illness. Elijah with half was taken to heaven. He did not die as all mortals die. Elisha is the man who’s dead bones gave back life to the dead!. Can you fathom that? God is Sovereign!
2 Kings 13:21Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man’s body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet.
Remember, we are all human and subject to the frailty of the human condition. Like Paul, Timothy, you and I, including the man or woman you always run to for deliverance, we all are human and have issues. Period!
Let no man of God doom your faith with falsehood of a curse or curses upon your head, family, and so on. They have same in their families too!
Stop running helter-skelter! Seek the face of God for yourself, seek medical help, change your life style, and be optimistic!
2 Kings 13:3So the Lord’s anger burned against Israel, and for a long time he kept them under the power of Hazael king of Aram and Ben-Hadad his son.
4 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord listened to him,for he saw how severely the king of Aram was oppressing Israel. 5 The Lord provided a deliverer for Israel, and they escaped from the power of Aram. So the Israelites lived in their own homes as they had before.
Whenever Israel sin against the Lord, God allows them to be oppressed by their enemies. However, as soon as Israel repented of their sinful ways and ask God for mercy, God always heard and deliver them.
Friends, there are many things we have left undone for far too long. We have gotten used to oppression, and depression. They are not the norm. They need to go!
Our enemies have capitalized upon the disobedience of our hearts, and the ignorance of our being that we have not repented of. The enemy of our soul is using these to bamboozle us, oppress, malign, and cheat us of what rightly belong to us.
Our freedom to be, to be real, authentic, and truly live freely without encumbrance. To be our highest selves, dauntless, and bold in every, and all circumstances.
Now is the time to petition heaven, cry unto the Lord, seek for the favour of God like Jehoazah.
God is bound by His word, He will listen, He sees, and He will deliver. You can bank on this! God will deliver you!
Raise your voice unto the Lord today. He will send help!
