The Delivery!

To be an effective and efficient messenger you must really be willing and ready to take the “hard road” regardless of your personal conviction. The hard road here refers to obeying and carrying out instruction as specified promptly and to the letter. It is hard if you are a logical person who questions everything. I always examine things to “see for myself”, that is to be convinced beyond reasonable doubt that it makes sense.

Though a lot of times things do not make sense, however, if God says it, so be it. David at a point was told to listen to the sound of matching on a mulberry tree. What does that mean? How can soldiers match on a tree, no matter how big the tree is, men are not meant to walk on trees. Well, that is the instruction given in 1 Chronicles 14:15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.

Neither should water placed in jars turn into wine. John 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

Many a time also emotions get in the way of our being effective and efficient as messengers. Love also plays a part in our delivery also. Lack of love is what makes people withhold life-altering information from a potential beneficiary. Lack of love, insecurity, greed, and much more will make us to know a remedy for someone’s ailment and not tell them, or see disaster looming without warning!

Jonah was such! He felt that the people of Nineveh do not deserve to be pardoned. He was actually looking forward to witnessing their calamity. Jonah 4:5 So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

The love of God in our heart will help us to deliver messages effectively and efficiently with the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

It shall be! What the Lord Promised.

A census was called, the first of its kind, requiring everyone to go to their own town to register. Joseph went and Christ was born to fulfill scripture. Friends, may the Lord give you a first of its kind miracle that will showcase you as Christ beloved. May you receive a first of it kind opportunity that will announce you to the world in Jesus mighty name. 

BibleIllustration18The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told – verse 20. As God had promised through the scriptures, may it be done in your life and mine in Jesus name.

Luke 2:34 &35 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.” 

Friends, if you stand for anything, good or bad you would be spoken against. You will suffer persecution either way. Why not stand for what is good and pleasing to God, stand for righteousness. As a born again spirit filled individual you are already a sign and a wonder. You will be spoken against because you are not of this world, not on the same plain as them. Your light shines and reveals the darkness around. Those in the dark and do not want the light will of course hate the light of God shining in you friends because you are revealing the thoughts of many hearts.

You see, you have been transformed by the renewal of your mind, you are no longer who you use to be. This will not sit very well with those that wanted you to remain as who you use to be so they can gloat over you. Satan does not want you in God’s camp so here you go. He will raise every opposition to your status and liberty in Christ Jesus. Don’t blame him, he needs more companion, however, you have to choose life or death, whichever you desire and hold on tight. Don’t be distracted by the jeers of the skeptics, hold on to the promise of life and life abundantly.

You are the custodial of that which the Lord has revealed to you, you know it will take God to bring it to pass, therefor stay with God. He is able.God will move heaven and earth to meet your needs be assured.  Don’t fall into the trap of the wicked one, stay focused cause you are closer than you think. Remember not to walk by sight, walk be faith, don’t allow anything, situation, circumstances or person to hinder you from possessing your possession. Every promise of God in the scripture is yours for the taking if you are born again, willing and obedient.

If not, please do not let another day go bye without asking Christ Jesus to reveal himself to you. A relationship with Jesus will give you purpose to live for. Don’t lose hope friends, help is available right where you are. Open your hearts to Jesus, he will come in and dine with you. He makes life better!

Shalom
