How Long More? Rise Up!

Mark 9:14 – 29 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.

Jesus asked and responded as follows:

  • “What are you arguing with them about” he asked – verse 16
  • “You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” verse 19
  • “How long has he been like this?” – Verses 21
  • “‘If you can’?” Said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes,” – Verse 23
  • “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, ” I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” Verse 25

26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. 28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, ” Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

  • He replied, ” This kind can come out only by prayer.” Verse 29

Think about this friends:

How long have you been arguing with the issues of your life? You have been going back and forth, negotiating, compromising, and yet no solution in sight.

How long are you going to continue in this situation? How long are you willing to put up with the unbelief in your heart? The impossibility whispering in your ears! Why will you not take it to the Cross? Be determined to rise up!

Think about it! How long have you been like this? How long more are you willing to remain the same, going around in circle without remedy?

If you can conceive it in your heart, precipitated by love for God, love for others and love for yourself, it is attainable. Everything is possible for those that believe.

You then need to/ have to cast down everything that has raised itself up against the backdrop of the Word of God, the plan of heaven for your life, and your freedom in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Stand upon The Word, I say again, stand – Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Praising God In Difficult Situation!

Acts 16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

inhabit praisePaul and Silas, having been stripped and beaten with rods, were severely flogged, and then thrown into prison, yet, they prayed and sang hymns unto God. How could they sing, I mean pray unto God who did not send a whirlwind to disperse their accuser? God left us to be humiliated, why should we sing hymns unto Him? This was not questions, not even a thought for these men. They were too far gone in their faith to consider such! “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; – Job 13:15 must have been the thought in their hearts. 

last-breath praiseFriends, how often do we encounter discouragement in our walk and we lose heart. We suffer for our own mistakes and deprive God of quality worship. May we not be replaced! Regardless of what is going on within and without friends, let us endeavor to pray and worship God, for He deserves it. Do you know that your worship in difficult circumstances is a reflection of the depth of your trust in the Lord? You will make a better witness, and produce a finer testimony than when in fair weather.

john-4_23When you pray and praise God in any situation, God moves, He steps into the situation, for He inhabit the praises of His people – Psalms 22:3.

Lord God Almighty, we praise and worship your holy name. Holy Spirit, help us to pray, praise and worship God in spirit and in truth. May we live daily to worship you in obedience and in reverence in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
