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!
Discernment will guide you from sharing your dreams with your enemies like Joseph did with his brothers – Genesis 37:5 Even those that should love and celebrate the fact that you can dream at all may kick against your lofty dreams like Jacob did. No matter how Jacob kicked against it, regardless of the evil schemes of Joseph’s brothers, the Word of God came to pass. So shall the Word of God concerning you come to pass for the glory of His Holy name. Amen
Saul was smart enough to keep the part about the anointing from his uncle. He took a cue from 1 Samuel 9:27 As they were going down to the outskirts of the city, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us.” And he went on. “But you stand here awhile, that I may announce to you the word of God.” Many lack discernment and would ignore cues to avoid pitfalls. May the Lord himself guide us all. Amen
1 Samuel 10: 14 Then Saul’s uncle said to him and his servant, “Where did you go?” So he said, “To look for the donkeys. When we saw that they were nowhere to be found, we went to Samuel.” 15 And Saul’s uncle said, “Tell me, please, what Samuel said to you.”16 So Saul said to his uncle, “He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found.” But about the matter of the kingdom, he did not tell him what Samuel had said.
Beware of those that act like they care for you and you know, kind of, its all a facade. They are only acting as such to know your plan so as to jeopardize you. Pray for discernment to see through such, but more importantly yourself, for the heart of man is desperately wicked, who can know it.
Revelation knowledge brings assurance, confidence, and peace. Lord release unto us access to hidden secrets that will accelerate the fulfillment of our destiny today in Jesus’s name. Amen. —- Culled from Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Open Heavens Devotional, May 2nd, 2018
God speaks! Are we listening? His words( The Bible) are the means through which we primarily hear from him. He also speaks through dreams and visions. He has spoken again! He who has ears should listen. We must all examine ourselves! What error have we fallen into? What pact have we agreed to?
The Lord showed me myself, in a place taking care of children, lots of them, more like a teacher in a school. I looked and saw a scene, a boardroom sort of, with men in suit. Then a crash, a break in through the walls. Here comes in, a gorilla, huge, fearsome looking stretching out its hands. The men collectively wrote out a cheque and gave it to the gorilla and it left.
The men were converging to discuss what just happened when the gorilla returned and demanded cash. In my heart, I was wondering what this was all about. I moved quickly like a mother hen to defend the children, but the gorilla was not looking our way.
I saw the men carrying bags of money, lots and lots of it to give to this gorilla, still looking on when I woke up.
What is this Lord I asked in my prayers when I woke up! What could it mean? Could it be that the men made a pact with the gorilla and it has come to get paid as agreed? What does the gorilla represent? Who are those men in suits? A boardroom? What is this Lord? Refusing a cheque and demanding for cash means now. It wants to be paid right now!.
What pact could these well-dressed men have made with a gorilla that warrants it barging in on them like this? Many questions have been raising in my mind since then! I have been praying but honestly, I don’t even know how to pray other than for mercy, whatever that means in this situation!
Lord God Almighty you are the All-knowing, all-seeing, and only wise God. You know what these means and only you can protect and shield the innocent. Lord have mercy on all concerned. Prevail over the wicked and strike evil down among your people in Jesus mighty name. Let your name alone be glorified.
Let every evil pact be destroyed today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Let us not pay the debt we do not owe Lord. Let the blood of Jesus that speaks of better things than that of Abel speak for your children.
Oh Lord arise! Arise in judgment over the wicked. Every tongue speaking guile be silenced. Expose every wolf in sheep’s clothing! Arise Oh Lord! Arise in your wrath and execute vengeance upon the unrepentant evil one I pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Let your Kingdom come and, your will be done. Praise unto your Holy name Oh Lord! Amen
Job 33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, 16 he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, 17 to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, 18 to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword.
I had a dream, in this dream I was driving a Corvette, parked it and took out its cover and covered it from front to back as it was topless. Then I and others seem to be somewhere not very friendly and we wisely exited and were on our way to some other place.
Then I saw, someone laid on a pedestal in a bush, field, and was attended to by someone. The attendant left to get something white from an old man’s bag opened by this old man who held it out for this young attendant to scoop the stuff out and it was placed on the person laid out who seems lifeless. This lifeless body was then packed up and carried out of the wooded area into a residential area. As the young man carrying this lifeless body was met by others, he fell unto a grassy field tumbling with the lifeless body.
Then a cloud descended on all on the field and a thunderous voice from heaven was heard asking “What about the thing I asked you to do? The lifeless body sat up and was answering but I did not hear the answer/ response, then I woke up.
I knelt down and prayed asking God what this is all about. Prayed and was prompted to write it down. Oh Lord my God do not interpretation belong to you? Please give me the interpretation of this and those others I prayed. Grant me the grace to interpret my dreams accurately Oh Lord in Jesus name. Lord let every dream from the pit of hell be destroyed in Jesus mighty name.
This was a dream from November 14th, 2014.
Lord in your mercy destroy every work of Satan concerning I and my friends. Help us to obey you Lord, to fulfill your plan and purpose for our lives. May we not die without fulfilling your plan for us.Give us understanding of the times Lord. Lord, we know you are ever present with us, even when everything seem to go crazy around us, and we cannot find our bearing, please help us not to lose hope. Help us to lay aside everything that has been working against us obeying you in all our ways.
Father, let your power, the power that raised Christ from the dead manifest in us to destroy every works of Satan. Reignite your fire within us and help us Lord. We can accomplish nothing except you help us by your Holy Spirit. Let the light of your countenance overshadow us even as we walk on the path of obedience in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen
“You see young lady, I knew there was something about me as a child” said My lady. “I realized much later in life that I was a very special child’. ‘My parent did not know or maybe they knew. They are long gone now, or I would have asked them” continued my lady. “I am glad of the mercies of God upon me and mine.
“My life has turned out better than I had envisioned it. I couldn’t have known back then what today would be, however, with faith and the love of God, I have been able to weather many a storm and come out unscathed and reinvigorated. Someone out there has been watching over me.” Said My Lady.”
“I was one of those children that parents just know there is something about them”. Something off, not like the other children, yet unable to pinpoint what it was. There were lots of experiences growing up that still seem a mystery to me today. How I wish my parents are still here, exclaimed, my lady with a deep sigh. I pray to live to be a hundred years old, to see my newest great grand child” said My Lady”
I rolled my yes and spluttered, having more questions per second than my lips could say. What experiences? Mystery? A hundred years old? You’ve had a beautiful life, with all the adventures I read about in your memoir, shouldn’t you be ready now, haven’t seen it all?
“I have indeed had a beautiful life”said my lady.”I am one of the few blessed ones, living out my days in peace, joy, and divine health. The Most High has been good to me.” Obviously one day soon as the Lord wills, said my lady as she looked on, as if looking into eternity, with a radiant countenance.
He has been good to you no doubt about that My Lady, I said. I guess we should take a break here. What do you think Ma’am? I asked. “Fine with me dear, said My Lady as she got up, and beckoned at me, tea?”
The Lord has tested you and has helped you to pass for the sake of His great name. The Lord has allowed you to be tested like Job was tested and has found you faithful. It might not have been a full scale testing like Job – he had more capacity. God had promised that we all will never be tested beyond what we can take.
How fortunate to be entrusted with so much of the invisible and yet the visible is blurred. You see friends, Joseph had dreams which was a revelation of what his future will be. He knew beyond any shadow that these vision will come to pass. What he did not for-see was that he will be hated by his own brothers, thrown into a pit and finally sold into slavery. How he suffered ridicule, false accusation and unjust treatment and yet it was not recorded that he questioned or doubted God.
You might be in that same position today, where people are placing labels on you, calling you names, treating you unfairly, even to the extent of placing you with Lucifer himself. Some would not smile back at your smile and nod of goodwill, some would not sit near you, like you have an infectious disease, some would avoid shaking your hands like you will sap life out of them, your every move is under surveillance and every word recorded.
For those that have taken their eyes off Christ Jesus and are now busy monitoring God’s anointed, like my Pastor said, “Ode to un so Eledumare” Ode wo lo fe so Eledumare? Won ko ti bi! Who is that hunter watching to trap God, to catch God unawares? While you are still thinking about your plan God knows, he sees you on your bed ruminating. Remember God formed you and knows the thought of man that it is desperately wicked. Quit trying to outsmart God. He knows the end from the beginning and there is nothing any being can or will do that will catch God unawares.
Friends, God will not allow his anointed to get caught in the trap of ones enemy. He who watches you never sleep nor slumber. He cared for Joseph all those years and Moses for 40 good years. He will watch over you in the valley, storm and whatever and wherever you are presently to ensure you do not give your enemies reason to rejoice over you. Whatever happens in your life will always give the skeptic and haters head aches, yes headaches until they repent and ask Jesus’s blood to purge their hearts of all evil towards you and mankind.
You see before God bestow grace and gift, he knows those that will use it for his glory and those for their own selfish interest. Every gift from God is for the good of his people. Luke 8:17-18 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.” Whatever you receive from God and is not benefiting his kingdom is a waste, you will soon loose it, therefor no matter the obstacle and hindrances, make sure the gift of God in you find expression. Don’t wait until you have a large audience, start with your household, colleagues, acquaintances and total strangers. Spread the love of God where you are, you’ll find out that you’ll discover real treasure in this earthen vessel. You are a bundle of joy, grace and beauty in the hand of God. Yield yourself to the Holy Spirit, let him move you in sync with the mind of Christ for your life. Rejoice! you have found favor of God, His grace is sufficient for you!
