There was a time I gave myself the assignment to be praying in tongues continuously for four hours daily. Initially, it was very difficult but as I continued, I discovered that I just couldn’t stop. I get caught up in heavenly worship and receive new songs. Heaven is so real. One of the ways to get caught up in heavenly worship is through praying in tongues. Unfortunately, most Christians don’t use this power. A lot of people who are baptized in the Holy Ghost speak only one tongue year in year out. They can’t even pray in tongues for up to twenty minutes before they tune off. Give yourself this assignment this period of fasting and prayer that you will pray in tongues daily for at least one hour. The result will amaze you. You will feel so much closeness to God; the presence of God will be so real and impactful in your life. The blessings of the presence of God are boundless and immeasurable.
If you regard iniquity in your heart, your effort will be fruitless even if you fast for one hundred days. There are lots of Church activities today which amount to next to nothing. That is why in spite of the proliferation of Churches, darkness is almost taking over the whole world. You are the light of the world, a city set on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. The light of God must shine through us. We shall be enforcers of righteousness. We will carry so much light inside of us that there will not be enough darkness in the world to put it off. One beautiful thing about walking with God is that anyone who walks with God gets ennobled.
Whatever you hand over to God gets better. God is not a user dumper. The best decision you can take is to be a God chaser. Make God your focus and you will become a focus. When others are saying there is a sinking, you will be lifted, you will shout in triumph. In the time of famine, the owner of the universe – the inexhaustible source of every good and perfect gift will not abandon his own. He is the one who will supply all our needs according to his riches in glory through miraculous provisions. Before any need arises, the provision will be there in supernatural abundance. Seek God and see all the things that others are seeking begin to pursue you.
The devil loves to set seals upon people’s destinies. He specializes in putting a full stop to where God has put a comma. Everything that the enemy has used to punctuate your joy shall give way today in the name of Jesus. The devil knows his limitations. The hand of God will dismantle and destroy every evil covering cast, set upon you.
One of the ways by which evil seals operate is through curses. A curse can be defined as an evil pronouncement that can work for generations when released unless it is broken. The power of God will break every curse. Some curses are self acting. For instance, anywhere you find idolatry, there is a curse. If you study the book of Deuteronomy 28, you will discover that verses 1-14 are all about blessings but from verses 15-68, there are only curses.
Evil seals have punctuated a lot of lives and progress. The joy of many has been tampered with. The Bible says it is with joy that we will draw from the wells of salvation (Isa.12:3). If you remove joy, there is nothing left. The devil knows how to replace joy with sorrow. I announce to you that sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Jesus was a man of sorrow, he has taken away our sorrows. Send every sorrow to the cross and watch the blood of Jesus neutralize it. Your joy will be restored and you will soar above every limitation.
Joy is a function of the presence of God. It is only in his presence that there is fullness of joy. Joy cannot be purchased with money, there are lots of billionaires who don’t know joy. How can they know joy when they don’t have Christ? How can they know joy when they don’t have the Holy Ghost? Joy is a fruit of the precious Holy Spirit. It is based on your connection; it is not circumstantial. That is the promise of God to his children. We don’t go for happiness because happiness is circumstantial; it is based on the externals. May you never settle for less in Jesus name. Unbelievers seek for it in the wrong direction.
- Father, I thank you for the generous provisions you have made for my well-being here, and hereafter through the death, burial and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ. I proclaim that the joy of the Lord is my strength, and with joy I draw the fullness of the blessings of redemption in Jesus’ name, amen.
