Watch, Pray, Be Expectant!

Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land. 48 He saw the disciples straining at the Oars, because the wind was against them. Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, 50 because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Mark 6:47-50

Okay Lord, I do not understanding why you waited till just before dawn to come towards me when you saw me last night straining. You saw the strain of my situation and circumstances discomforting me. You knew I was having difficulty at the beginning of this endeavor, this business, this pregnancy, relationship,this career, this ministry, this marriage, health, whatever OARS means to you put it there friends. Yet you waited Lord! You did not come to me right away! Why!!!! Why!!!!

And then when you decided to come, you acted like you were passing me by. You could not speak to me from afar, announcing that you were on your way, you scared me Lord! I thought you were a ghost. I mean, I couldn’t sleep all night, troubled, tossed here and there, my energy sapped, my will weakened, and you were going to walk by me? Mark 6:47-50

Jesus! You knew all things. You knew I was afraid. I almost pissed in my pant! Why did you walk on the water like that? You could have waited longer till day break so I could see that it was you, I mean why come just before dawn? Mark 6:47-50

Friends, whatever situation and circumstances you are in, the Lord knows and He is coming, maybe already there! You also need to remember that He showed up the last time you needed a miracle. The Lord want us to pay attention always to every event. He want us to watch and pray Mark 14:38

If we are not watching and praying, and expectant, there is no way we will see the miracle, signs and wonder we are waiting for. Watching alone will not give us result, at best we will see all and everything that scares us. When we pray, our spiritual antenna comes up to sensitize us to see what natural eyes cannot see, we get an understanding of the times like the children of Issachar 1 Chronicles 12:32. When we are expectant, it shows that we believe what we have asked for1 John 5:14-15

I announce to you today that if you believe, you will see the glory of God – John 11:40

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Light Shining In Darkness!

The odd one like Mordecai refusing to bow down to Haman! Unlike Esau, holding unto your birthright – your glory. A star shinning in dark places, an inconvenience to evil perpetrators, a target of the wicked one.


Fear not the Lord says, I have overcome the world! He who has the key of David is able! He keeps alive and no one can kill, lift up and none can pull down, He is able to keep you from falling. He will not leave you to the will of your enemies. Selah!

Yoruba says “ti aba n ja, bi ka ku ko”

The bible says “I will give lives for your life”

As many as have gathered together against you shall fall for your sake.
As many hands that wants to cover your glory shall wither in Jesus Christ mighty name. For no one can cover the glory of the sun or stop the moon from rising!

As many as wants to push you down to sheol will go down to sheol in your place. For it is written, he who digs a pit shall fall into it. He who rolls a stone shall have it rolled over them. As many as does not want your voice to be heard where it matters will be silenced.

As many ears that does not want to hear your voice receive deafness this moment in Jesus name.

Who has apoken and it comes to pass when the Lord has not spoken?

As many as has and is pronouncing evil against you and yours shall receive on thier heads in 100 fold what they have spoken against you. For who can curse him who the Lord has blessed!

The Lord has spoken who can reverse it? The Lord has called who can but answer?

May the power of the Most High God, the power that raised Christ from the dead, manifest in your life to destroy every works of satan.
May you receive help from above.

May the hands that is not of mortals lift you up. May you receive help today.

May every mouth that have laughed at you come and rejoice with you.

May it be known to all that the Lord is your strenght and salvation, your protector and shield, your fortress and covering, your high tower and safety from the storm in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.

Defending His Name

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL by Pastor E. A. Adeboye RCCG

DATE: THURSDAY MAY 18TH 2017
THEME: DEFENDING HIS NAME
Memorise:
Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known. Psalm 106:8

Read: Psalm 106:7-9 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea. 8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known. 9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

MESSAGE:

The Bible declares that our God is a very present help in time of trouble (Psalm 46:1). This means that He is ever-present or always ready to help in the time of trouble. There are several reasons why God makes His help available to a person. Understanding these reasons and applying them to your life will go a long way in helping you experience God as an ever-present help. One of these reasons is to fulfil His promises. God is very committed to His promises; hence, Psalm 89:34 says, “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.”

If He has purposed to help you, he will not change His mind midway. Numbers 23:19 says,“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

God’s word has integrity. He regards His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Every promise He has made to you shall be fulfilled speedily! God cannot violate his word, so you can be sure that He will keep His promise to help you.
Another reason why God reaches out to help a man is for the sake of His Name. if you genuinely belong to God, he will help you because you bear His Name and are called by His Name in this world (Acts 15:17). No wonder Psalm 106:8 says, “Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.”

That means His intervention goes beyond your asking. He will intervene to defend His Name and show His power. At certain bus stops in life, some people will challenge you by asking “Where is your God?” Some may even say “If your God is truly alive, He should have delivered you by now.” If you are in such situation, take heart and be unmovable. In Daniel 3:14-29, King Nebuchadnezzar initially asked the three Hebrew children “who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?” however, by the time God was through with him, he publicly confessed that there was no God like their God. Is your child in a situation that appears hopeless? Is your business or career going through some impossible storm? God will step into your situation and calm the storms! The Lord is speaking peace to every impossible situation you are up against right now. He will surely bring you out of the storm, not just because of you, but because of His Name that you bear. In that situation you are going through, the Lord will defend His Name, and He will not put you to shame. He will demonstrate His power just to give you the last laugh in Jesus’ Name.
Prayer Point:
Father, in this present situation I find myself, arise and defend your matchless Name.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Deuteronomy 29-30

Jeremiah 32:16-2 5
