DOMINION OVER SCARCITY (CONTED.)
Acts 2:22-23 says, “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross”. (NIV). Rev. 13:8 described Jesus as the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Paul contrasted the wisdom of the world with that of God and he said in 1 Cor. 2:6-8, “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor the princes of this world, that come to nought: but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: which none of the princes of his world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory”. The wisdom of the people of this earth is sensual; carnal, that is why if you follow the world, you will miss God, you will miss the word of God and anyone who misses the word of God cannot have comprehensive success; he is only succeeding to fail. It is only in God’s programme that you can succeed to succeed – what I call successful achievements. It is so easy to derail and start chasing shadows. It is my desire that anyone who comes in contact with this ministry will begin to have encounters with Jesus. It will do what no preaching can do and it will make you change your order of priority.
Pray – Lord, please make it impossible for me to miss it, you know my areas of worries and struggles, you know where the enemy is putting pressure on me, please help me, deliver me, I need your strength, I need grace to remain on course, only you can make this possible for me, thank you blessed Lord.
Access to wisdom and power is through the cross. It is only as we appropriate, by faith, what Jesus Christ has accomplished for us on the cross and only as we allow the principles of the cross to be worked out in our life that the secretly hidden wisdom and strength of God becomes effective in our life. God’s wisdom is wiser than the world, God’s strength is stronger than the strength of the world put together.
God has promised us supernatural abundance in his word. Eze. 36:37-38 says, “Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD”. We are serving the God of supernatural abundance.
Psa. 107:35-38, “He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; and sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease”. Psa. 115:12-18 says, “The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence. But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD”.
