Be Faithful! Even Little Faith!

Revelations 3:7 …….These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”; 

“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

Blessed And Highly Favoured!

 

Luke 1: 26 NIV In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.29 Mary was greatly blessedtroubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found favour with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”38 I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

Friends, Mary the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ was favoured of God, hand picked and ordained before the foundation of the world was laid to bring forth the Lord Jesus into this world. Elizabeth was to bring forth John the baptist, Christ forerunner. Some of you reading this have been ordained to bring forth children that will grow up to be great apostles of the Lord. Men and women of stature in the Kingdom of God waiting to come forth from wombs of destiny. Some of you might have been waiting to conceive for years now. Some of you have been called barren and have gone through countless pain.

Birthing destiny is not an easy thing. As Mary and Elizabeth were favoured of God, you would expect that they will not have any heartaches right? Elizabeth waited so long, in our time she would have been made fun of. “Here she goes again, church all the time, loving and working for God with nothing to show for it”,  right?. I don’t even understand Elizabeth and Zachariah any more, this priesthood thing has gotten into their heads that they are not bothered about leaving a legacy! some would have said.

Mary on the other hand was almost disgraced but for the quick intervention of the Lord. Matthew 1 :18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”22 All this took place to fulfil what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Friends, been favoured of God does not mean smooth riding through life. There will be bumps here and there, there will be storms to ride through like Jesus did. Those detours are for your good, it will work out and is working out for you already! Be rest assured however that the Lord will never leave nor forsake you when you go through storms, valleys and all sort. God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can take. He paid enormously for you to now leave you stranded. Jesus will come through for you always. Trust Him and lean on Him alone.

Just imagine Mary’s thought, knowing she has seen and heard from God and her experience in the community, everyone looking for that opportunity to throw at least a stone at her for her crime as the custom dictates. Many are looking for opportunity to call you names, stigmatize you, label you and all sort! Please don’t let it stick on you, shake it off, keep your head up and eyes focused on Jesus.

You are a blessed and highly favoured child of the Most High God. You are blessed beyond any and every form of reproach. You have been chosen, hand picked for a spectacular purpose. You need only to yield your life totally to the Master porter to mold you as He will. Live and walk in this confidence that there is greatness in you my friends. You are very important in the agenda of heaven. Bask in the love of God and be a channel of kindness to others. Be intentional in living for the Lord, for eternity.

Stay in Christ, He loves you!

Uniqueness of One!

Ezekiel 22:30 “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.

quote-insight-is-the-god-given-ability-for-you-to-know-your-identity-your-kingdom-id-your-chuck-pierce-145-7-0751Friends,  your being different is a plus not a minus! You are uniquely created for a grand purpose regardless of whatever voices have been speaking in contrast. You don’t have to fit in, flow with the tide to belong! Be unapologetically yourself, working consistently towards the divine plan of God.

The Most High God,  all knowing, all seeing One always calls the unique, an ordinarily simple but unique individual,  a man from a family like Abraham,  Moses, Joseph, David, even King Saul, Apostle Paul amongst many to do extra ordinary things. Usually those called do not look like it, for they are flawed, unlikely and overlooked individual, disadvantaged yet carrying the seal of God’s approval in thier DNA.

Every part of the human body has unique purpose, so does every single being created by God – some for honor and others for dishonor. You however can work your way into honor from dishonor and vice versa by the mercies of God, for He does not wish that any should perish. Romans 9:21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel  for honor and another for dishonor? Verse 22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endure with much longsuffering the vessels  of wrath prepared for destruction.

The special purpose for which you were created is what makes you unique, unique enough to fit into God’s masterpiece, and not the expectations of the naysayers around you. Psalms 106:23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them. Had not  Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, to turn away His wrath, lest he destroy them.

You are chosen, you are loved, you are important in the agenda of heaven! You are not weird or “spooky”!  Remind yourself of your uniqueness and God’s plan and purpose for your life. You are to stand in the gap for your fathers house, His body, your Church, family and kingdom! Do not be found wanting in this regard. Rise above every limitation to be who God created you to be – a vessel of honor for His good pleasure! Stay blessed! Be in His presence!

Shalom!
