THE GOD OF DANIEL IS MY GOD

 

HAPPY WITH CHURCH TONIGHT
(Fasting and prayer day 25)
The evening prayer meeting was very good. We prayed and praised God. As the dew falls upon the grass in the morning, we patiently waited for the presence of the Holy Spirit to ’settle’ on our hearts. We were not disappointed. You could literally feel the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing on our souls. Then the message came. We are in a season of spiritual warfare. In the military there are three basic strategies in the area of warfare: offensive, defensive and withdrawal. To be offensive it means to be aggressive, to be ready for battle forcefully driving back the enemy; having the tendency to habitually pay the price for the crown of victory. ‘The violent takes it by force’. To be defensive it means to protect the gain you already have. To withdraw it means to abandon your possessions and the enemy takes over. Take note: It is only thru offensive strategy that you can gain victories, breakthroughs and miracles. The devil will try all he can to keep you being defensive or to withdraw from your position. The devil only fears a Christian who has the mind of Christ and the heart of a warrior. A wise man attacks the stronghold of the enemy and conquers it (PV 21:22). A wise man is someone who knows how to apply the Word of God in daily living. A wise man is someone who uses to Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God thru a holy offensive strategy. His victory is sure and he will do great exploits.
 
In Daniel Chapter 6 we see the old prophet passing thru the fires of testing on the road to prosperity. He is about 90 years old when he was thrown in the den of lions. This is his most difficult trial. The king was planning to promote him. But the enemies became jealous and wanted him dead. The secret of his success was ‘an excellent spirit’. This is the abundant fruit of the Holy Spirit. To be excellent it means to have the highest degree of quality of character; it means to go above the limit of previous achievements; it means to be superior to all others in a race. It means to be the Champion of champions. You can see the intimate relationship between God and His faithful servant, Daniel. He could boast that ‘God Almighty is my God’. Can you really say that God is your God? If you pass the test of hungry lions, then you are set for divine promotion. Many say about life: it is not a do or die affair. But if you want to be promoted by God, you may have to say that it is ‘a do or die affair’. Or like Queen Esther said: I will go and see the King! And if I perish, I perish’. This is what Darius, the pagan king proclaimed:
“I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions” (Dan 6:26-27)
 
God is longing to bless you, in your body, soul, spirit, family, finances, ministry and business. Are you ready to pay the price? God is waiting for you…

COUNSEL TO MY DAUGHTER

My daughter was facing some challenges today. This was my counsel to her: “It is better to make little steps in the right direction than to make giant steps in the wrong way. If you need to change direction, then change it! It is never too late to do right! Be sure you give God all the glory for your testimony!”
Maybe others need the same advice! God bless you!

ENMITY AND VICTORY

(Fasting and prayer day 24)

TESTIMONY
This morning, a sister form our church found this dead snake on the floor, in her bedroom. The head was crushed and the neck broken. Nobody knows how it entered the house and nobody knows what killed it. She is safe!

This is the word of God:
“And I will put enmity (open hostility)
Between you (the serpent) and the woman,
And between your seed (offspring) and her Seed;
He shall [fatally] bruise your head,
And you shall [only] bruise His heel.” (Gen 3:15; AMP)

We are in a season of spiritual warfare. As a born again Christian you should not stay of ‘survival mode’. Each victory is the result of active prayer warfare led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. In the Bible we are told that the same God of peace has commanded ‘enmity’ between the Seed of the woman (who is our Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace) and the serpent (the devil and and his demons). Enmity is more than occasional anger or hatred against your opponent. It means an attitude of deep seated dislike and ill-will that has a rational explanation. Therefore, there is no peace between these two parties. There is no settlement between the Church of the Living God and the devil. These are two eternally separated camps. Compromise means defeat.

Jesus did not die on the Cross to redeem the devil because he is declared to be un-redeemable. Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, to save us the believers and tor reconcile us to our Heavenly Father. On the Cross, the devil used the rusty nails to (only) bruise His heal. But by His death, our Savior fatally and eternally bruised, crushed the devil’s head. There is no doctor, no hospital and no medicine where the devil can be cured from this mortal head injury he received at Calvary. Never forget! The victory of Christ on the Cross was total! Nothing can be added and nothing can be subtracted. On the Cross He said: “It is finished!” The devil is a defeated foe! Nothing and nobody can change that! We do warfare from the knowledge that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Captain of our salvation can never lose any battle. In Christ, we are lead from one triumph to another. May you take the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and enroll in the battle!Your testimonies shall increase! The victory is sure! Jesus is Lord!

In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God!
I hate the devil!
I love God!
I have the victory!
To the glory of God!
In Jesus name
Amen!

ABANDON SINKING SHIP

(Fasting and prayer day 23)
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation” (Mt 26:41)

The devil is deceiving so many people. He makes them proud, blind and foolish. When men are careless with their souls, their lives sink and they are not even aware. Depression and routine unsatisfying work is poison to the spirit. Men who are deceived continue to go thru the motions unaware that they are dying. Temptation is not sin. Even Jesus was tempted by the devil. Sin comes when you fall or sink in the middle of the temptation. Wake up from that slumber! God is calling you to stand for Him! Run away from any boat, any life style, any church or any relationship that brings you down! Abandon the sinking rotten ship! Swim to the shore and be free! Jesus is waiting for you! You can make it!

THE BLESSING OF JUDAH

 

(Fasting and prayer day 22)
“And this is the blessing of Judah: and he (Moses) said: “Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him to his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be You a help to him from his enemies” (Deut 33:7)

This is the blessings given by Moses to the tribe of Judah. In Hebrew, the word ‘Judah’ means to praise, to worship, to celebrate or to do warfare. Moses says that God will hear Judah’s voice. His voice will cry out in prayer and praise. He is a man of prayer. Men, especially the leaders, are too ashamed to cry out! But Judah will not keep quiet! This is a cry of humility and faith. God promises to hear and answer those prayers! God promises to bring him to his people. Judah will have many godly friends, followers and spiritual children. The unity of the Spirit in the tribe of Judah shall increase. There shall be no divisions or quarrels. His hands shall be sufficient to play instruments or to throw arrows at the enemies. The word ‘sufficient’ means to abundantly and exceedingly increase in strength and skill at what you do. This is royal prosperity at all levels. There shall be showers of blessings on all that belongs to Judah. Wealth is Judah’s portion. God will pay Judah’s debt! Because of all these blessings, Judah’s enemies shall increase. These are the jealous people around who hate worship. But God will be with in in the battle and help triumph over them all. Prosperity, health and wealth shall come to them who faithfully worship God. The praise and worship of Jehovah must continue!
This is a great lesson for all the born again children of God and especially for those who are faithful in the ministry of praise and worship. Prophetically, you can apply all these revelations to your life, your family, your ministry and the work of your hands! God blesses His worshipers more than others! The Word of God says it. The experience of many who are active and faithful in the worship teams declares it to be true. In Jesus name, amen!

In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God!
I am a worshipper of God!
God will hear and answer my prayers!
The unity of the Spirit in my home, in my church, in my worship team shall be established!
I am strong!
God will bless the work of my hands!
I work for God and God will pay my debts!
I will work little and make a lot of money because I need time to serve God!
As I continue to worship God, my enemies shall be defeated! They shall come against me one way and flee away in seven ways!
My God can never lose any battle! As I worship God and delight in Him, I too can never lose!
God is my exceedingly great reward!
I will sing and compose songs to my God for He is worthy of all praise!
To the glory of God!
In Jesus name
Amen!

PRAISE REPORT

Today was a wonderful day. It was my husband’s birthday! Our children, natural and spiritual, sent good wishes, prayers, cards and gifts to us. The married men in Father’s House organized a surprise wonderful dinner to celebrate his birthday. The cake was in the form of a big ancient Bible. We all ate the Word of God!!! So much effort of love…
We are not ‘party’ people. Like Taleigh said, ‘we are not used to have the attention directed on us’. If you see anything good in us, please give God all the glory! We are overwhelmed with all you have done for us, to make us happy. We are both very grateful.
This is my prayer for you: As you honor us, your parents, according to His promise (Ex 20:12) may God give you land to build your house and long life to live in it!
Thank you so much. God bless you and your families. In Jesus name, amen!

GOD IS BUSY IN ME

 

(Fasting and prayer day 20)
“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him” (Jn 9:1-3)
 
This is the story of man who was born blind and who was healed by Jesus. This man was healed purely by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. He did not ‘merit’ this healing. He was not rewarded with a miracle for any good deeds he did in the past. He did not even pray or call on Jesus. He was not brought to Jesus by friends like in the case of others. This is what happened: Jesus ‘passed by’, saw him and healed him. This is a great revelation. The Lord has the right to heal anyone He wishes and to ignore any other. The Lord does not owe any man anything. Jesus Christ is the sovereign God. That is why He is The Lord of lords. But it is to our advantage to position ourselves in humility and faith waiting for Him to just ‘pass by’. If the shadow of Peter can heal the sick, how much more the very mention of the name of Jesus can bring life to any dead circumstances.
The primary purpose for this miracle of healing was that ‘the works of God be revealed in him’. The second purpose was to free a suffering man from a life time of bondage to the powers of darkness. By giving sight to a blind man others will see that our God ‘does not sleep and does not slumber’. They will be reminded that ‘all power belongs to God’, that ‘nothing is impossible for God’. The Living God is actively interested in displaying His glory and mighty works that no man or demon can deny.
 
This is my prayer for you: If you are in need may God locate you today! If you are sick may the healing grace of our Lord Jesus Christ touch you today! May God use you as a sample of His unique wondrous works on earth! May you be healed, in your body, soul and spirit! May your spiritual eyes be opened to see King Jesus in His glory, seated on the throne! Whatever is your affliction, be healed, in Jesus name!
 
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God!
I am saved by grace alone thru faith in the Crucified Christ!
God is busy in me! He will finish what He has started!
I am healed! I am delivered!
I am a living proof of God’s power and love!
To the glory of God!
In Jesus name
Amen!
