Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits Psalms 103:2
We are blessed to be alive and well this season, a lot of us might not see any reason why we should celebrate "life" given to us by the Special Grace of God. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. As we are about to start a new year... this should be a time of sober reflection, a time when we go to God in Prayer and thank Him For His marvelous works in our lives and families, ask Him what He wants from us this year (Direction), what we must do for Him and also how to stay strong in Faith to live a mountain top life instead of life in the valley
I would like to reiterate that this post is not about scoring points with it's esteemed readers, but I want us to use this opportunity to look inward and take stock of our lives and know where/when we let the devil take charge of our lives this year... the Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whenever we give in to the devil , be assured that the result will automatically translate to life in the valley, hence living a defeated life.(I Decree we must live a Mountain Top life in Jesus Mighty name Amen)
This coming year 2008 is a year of Prayer, we are going to be praying for one another and see the awesome power of our God made manifest in our lives as we pray.
I will be making some posts on prayer soon, God willing. please bear with me.
In the meantime take note of this few keys on how to defeat your defeat and lets make necessary changes to your life in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.
KEYS TO DEFEATING DEFEAT
When it is hard to pray, it is time to pray hard. This is because at that particular time, the enemy wants to silence you, and you may be closer to your breakthrough. Don’t wait for the spirit to be moving in your heart before you pray.
Don’t worry yourself about yesterday. It is a cancelled cheque and is gone. Don’t worry yourself about tomorrow. It is a promised loan. Be concerned only about today. It is cash.
If satan does not attack you regularly it is because he is well pleased with what you are doing. Some are desirous of ice cream. Christianity, whereby they would get everything on a platter of gold. That is their dream, forget it. As long as you want to fulfil your destiny, there is war. But then, the Bible says, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” The Bible also says, “They shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail.” It does not say, “They will not fight.” They will fight, but the important thing is that they shall not prevail. And the white man says that he who laughs last, laughs best.
God can only mould those that He has melted. So, if you have not allowed the lord to break you down and remold you, the enemy will always come in through the areas that have openings.
Our God is awesome, available and adequate. Many of us need to pray that God will help them throw away the Idols in their hearts… idolatry is not when you bow to idols, there is a type of idolatry that believers practice that is belittling God or demoting God in our minds or our eyes.
Strangers to prayers are strangers to power
Worry is faith in the devil you must defeat fear if you want to defeat your enemies
Every setback prepares you for a come back.. don’t take set as permanent for this too shall pass)
Fame is a vapour, popularity is an accident, riches take wings but character endures forever. Look after your character if you don’t want defeat. No matter how good or talented you are if your character is not good you will be marginalised. What is your Character? It is what you are in the dark, what you are when nobody is around, not while people are looking at you.
When you kill time you are committing murder, you are committing suicide... number your years very well, don’t waste your time this year.
Anyone can make a mistake but fools practice mistakes don’t practice mistakes
Keep a cemetery ready to bury unprofitable thoughts it means that you are going to think about this year must be according to the Will of God
Fear is unbelief in disguise somebody said that fear could mean false evidence appearing real.
If your way is easy, then you are going to place of nowhere. immediately you are there will be obstacles on your part.
