SEVEN REASONS WHY THERE SHALL BE NO MORE LACK
4. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
- ‘Abundant life is my portion in this land of the living.’ Base your persuasion on the word of God and confess it always. Confession goes before your possession.
5. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.
Part of the works of the devil is poverty, lack, distress, disease and so on according to 1 John 3:8, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil”. Rom. 16:20, “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
Part of bruising satan is bruising everything he represents and one of the things he represents is poverty. Ensure that you get angry when dealing with the issue of poverty because it is an aggressive disease. You cannot change what you tolerate.
6. God has given us authority.
He has given us authority to forbid and to allow. Whatever you allow will be allowed, whatever you forbid will be forbidden according to Matthew 18:18. I don’t think we are doing enough of binding; we are allowing so many things that we ought to forbid. It is rather unfortunate. The Church is guilty of this. The world is sick. We are kept here on earth to be enforcers of righteousness. It is unfortunate that those who should be enforcing righteousness are themselves becoming agents of unrighteousness because of what to eat.
Whenever you abdicate your responsibility like the first Adam did, a snake is bound to take over. Every tragedy in life can be traced to abdication of responsibility. God is still asking, “Adam where art thou?” Some parents think that the best they can do for their children is just to send them to the best of schools. The best thing you can do for your children is to give them God education. We are called to be gate keepers. Your home is a garden; you must not allow the snake to enter. Every garden attracts snakes. Deliberately plant anti-snake in order to fence off the snake from the garden.
- Father I thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to die for me. I celebrate the fullness of the blessings of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus I thank you for destroying every work of the devil in my life and blessing me with heaven’s blessings as well as human joy. Amen.
