Redeem! Restore! Revive! Rebound!

22049954_1595850553808257_4565320046130626295_n.jpg

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. As we near the end of 2017, we are in great expectation of the supernatural blessings and financial breakthroughs of the Lord to bestow upon us. And may those who pass by refuse to give us this blessing: "The LORD bless you; we bless you in the LORD's name." The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are and bless you, just as He has promised you!

Abba Father, we stand on your WORD in Isaiah 60:1-6, we believe that we will see, taste, experience and testify of the manifestation of this very great promise, the Grace and Glory of God in our lives, in Jesus name.

Beloved... "Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you.

For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you [insert your name] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you.

Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes around you and see; They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be looked after at their side. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble [with joy] and rejoice because the abundant wealth of the seas will be brought to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.

A multitude of camels [from the eastern trading tribes] will cover you [insert your name], The young camels of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba [who once came to trade] will come bringing gold and frankincense and proclaiming the praises of the Lord."

Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Beloved... Blessed is one who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told them from the Lord. Do not be afraid, only believe! Receive this with a loud AMEN!!

In Lord Jesus Christ name, I pray, praise, and proclaim these prophetic utterances in my life, the lives of my children, my household, my family, the followers of Nikimac community, our finances, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, the work of our hands, and destiny, Amen!

Jesus is my Rock and the Foundation of my Life!

September Week 4 Day 29 UPowerUp!
Jesus is my Rock and the Foundation of my Life!

rock bottom.jpg
“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods and torrents came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish (stupid) man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods and torrents came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great and complete was its fall.”

When Jesus had finished [speaking] these words [on the mountain], the crowds were astonished and overwhelmed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one who had authority [to teach entirely of His own volition], and not as their scribes [who relied on others to confirm their authority].
— Matthew 7:24-29 (AMP)

Beloved...  For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have--Jesus Christ! We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair; hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone]; struck down, but never destroyed; always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown in our body. 

Let's sing:
My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame But wholly lean on Jesus’ name... On Christ the solid rock I stand... All other ground is sinking sand...

Let's pray: 
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, Abba incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. I believe that the Lord, Jesus Christ, is my Rock, and the foundation of my life and I will not be disturbed. I will not be moved, failed, nor denied of my provision, protection, peace and prosperity. My LORD, the Almighty, All-Sufficiency, All-Powerful, Sovereign God, He is unshakeable, immovable, and unchangeable. My LORD is my rock, and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart exults, and with my song, I shall thank Him.

The LORD lives and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer, in Jesus name, I pray. AMEN

Divine Empowerment and Transformation

September Week 4 Day 28 UPowerUp!
Divine Empowerment and Transformation

22007762_1593955143997798_558823248353876419_n.jpg

 

Beloved... God's covenant promises and blessings are predestined for us. But we must seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto us. God has already provided! He has already redeemed us! He has already healed us, by the stripes on His back, we are healed! He has already set us free from every captivity! God's Word said that my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Satan's best strategy is for us to ignore, doubt or disobey God's Word. John 8:32 (AMP) says, "And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free [from the penalty of sin].” 

"Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and every expression of evil, and humbly receive the word planted in you, which can save your souls. Be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Otherwise, you are deceiving yourselves." (James 1:21-22) O LORD, help us not only to hear Your Word but also to carry it out relentlessly in our lives. Lord, please help us to believe, receive and activate the knowledge and revelation of the Word, that we may understand and be obedient in living in the Kingdom of God and pursuing Your Will for our lives. May we gain a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit living within us and the Resurrection Power of our Living God to break-free from every sin, barrenness and spiritual death... to break out of captivity, mediocrity and limitation... and to breakthrough to unlimited advancement, fruitfulness and righteousness. May our character, integrity, conduct, attributes and actions reflect and align with our God's given purpose and His divine plan for our lives. May we obey God's commandments and seek His Will, Word and Way for our lives.

22046471_1645985332112275_4345170761865937491_n.jpg
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day [when I judge them], ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, and driven out demons in Your name, and done many miracles in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them publicly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me [you are banished from My presence], you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].’
— Matthew 7:21-23 (AMP)

 

Beloved... You might be asking, so what are the righteous acts of the LORD? "With what shall I come before the Lord to honor Him and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with yearling calves? Will the Lord be delighted with thousands of rams, or with ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I present my firstborn for my acts of rebellion, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you except to be just, and to love and to diligently practice kindness (compassion), and to walk humbly with your God, setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness?" (Micah 6:6-8)

One of the saddest scripture in the bible is 1 Samuel 16:14 - "But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him." Now Holy Spirit of the LORD had left Saul, and the LORD sent a tormenting spirit that filled him with depression and fear. May this, never be our portion, in Jesus name... Let's pray!

Heavenly Father, Hallowed be thy name, Your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as in heaven. Lord, I come before you today and I confess and repent of my sins; my sins of omission and sins of commission. O Lord, God of many second chances! Lord, I seek your mercy, grace, forgiveness, faithfulness, favour and steadfast love towards me. By the precious Blood of Jesus, I draw nearer to You and I choose to obey You.

  • Lord, today, I cry out to you desperately for mercy like Samson for another second chance.

Then Samson called to the LORD and said, "O Lord GOD, please remember me and please strengthen me just this time, O God, that I may at once be avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes." (Judges 16:28)

  • Lord, today, I pray desperately for help in the midst of my affliction, like Jonah...

Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the stomach of the fish, and he said, "I called out of my distress to the LORD, And He answered me. I cried for help from the depth of Sheol; You heard my voice.… (Jonah 2:1-2)

  • Today, I fervently pray Jehoshaphat's Prayer for God's divine protection, strength and strategies to fight and defeat all my enemies, opposition and everything attacking me...

"O our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You." (2 Chronicles 20:12)

  • Like Jabez, Lord, today, I pray for a sudden shift, a change in my character, my name and every old association with my past sins, limitation and failure. Lord, please transform my life, my situation and my destiny to align with God's predestined divine plan and purpose for me, His Will, Way and Word, to prosper me, not to harm me and give me an expected end. Abba Father may You equip, empower, enlarge and elevate me, in every area - spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, intellectually, physically, socially, relationally, personally, professionally, inter-personally, globally, and generationally...

Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!" And God granted him what he requested. (1 Chronicles 4:10)

Lord, I thank you for granting me my request. I receive Your divine empowerment and transformation... I receive Your blessings of restoration and redemption. I receive Your love, security, peace, significance, influence, honor, favor, success, and victory. I shout and rejoice that the Lord, He is God! I offer to the Lord, God a sacrifice of thanksgiving and pay my vows to the Most High. I call upon the LORD in the day of trouble; He has rescued me, and I honor Him. Lord, you have promised blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. Today, I make a new commitment to follow, to obey God's decrees and His commandments, and to show reverence for His sanctuary and the Kingdom of God. Lord, I thank You for the fulfillment of Your promises, reward and blessings of obedience that shall be bestowed upon me and all concerning me. Upon this confession of my faith and my repentance, I pray that all curses of disobedience are broken, expired, destroyed, as they are no longer valid; they are nullified, nulled and void over my life, my seeds and my generation, by the precious Blood of Jesus.

I declare that today, I am a new creation and it's a new season. God is about to shift things in my direction, shift me in right place at the right time. I am prepared and positioned for an overflow of blessings, miracles of healing, promotion, prosperity, peace, provision, protection and overwhelming victory. I am a dazzling display of the splendour of the Glory of God. By the Grace of God, I claim the blessings of obedience written in Leviticus 26:3-13 (NLT)

“If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit. Your threshing season will overlap with the grape harvest, and your grape harvest will overlap with the season of planting grain. You will eat your fill and live securely in your own land. I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear. I will rid the land of wild animals and keep your enemies out of your land. In fact, you will chase down your enemies and slaughter them with your swords. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword. I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you. You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest! I will live among you, and I will not despise you. I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high."

Glory to God... Lord, I believe and I receive and I activate Your promises of these blessings for obedience in my life, the lives of my children, my household, my family, the followers of the Nikimac community, our finances, health, healing, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, academic/intellectual excellence, the work of our hands, and our God-given destiny; in Jesus mighty name.

Lord, it is my deepest desire above all that I ask or seek of you in this land of the living, that we continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. I pray that the Holy Spirit may never depart from us. For it is God who works in us to will and to act on behalf of His good pleasure. Surely Your goodness, mercy and unfailing love shall follow us all the days of our lives: and we will dwell in the house and presence of the LORD forever. Lord, may we receive the ultimate gift of eternal life. I pray that we will hear The LORD and Master say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your Master.’

Hallelujah!!!

In Jesus name, we pray, praise and proclaim these prophetic utterances. AMEN!!

Exaltation of the Afflicted

September Week 4 Day 27 UPowerUp!
Exaltation of the Afflicted

22045974_1592906207436025_2167883797856141198_n.jpg

 

Beloved... I am the bearer of good news... I hear the Holy Spirit saying, "This is the week when I shall exalt the afflicted... Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me."

Many of us are in afflictions, we are crying out desperately to the Lord saying, " O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from childhood. Have mercy on me! O Lord, I have come to you for protection; don’t let me be disgraced. Save me and rescue me, for you do what is right. Turn your ear to listen to me, and set me free. Be my rock of safety where I can always hide. Give the order to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress... My God, rescue me from the power of the wicked, from the clutches of cruel oppressors..... Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also. For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away..... My life is an example to many because you have been my strength and protection. That is why I can never stop praising you; I declare your glory all day long. And now, in my old age, don’t set me aside. Don’t abandon me when my strength is failing. For my enemies are whispering against me. They are plotting together to kill me.They say, “God has abandoned him. Let’s go and get him, for no one will help him now.” O God, don’t stay away. My God, please hurry to help me!"

Beloved, in your desperation and impatience, do not turn away from the Lord God and seek false prophets or pacifiers to numb the pain of the process... Repent of your sins and remain unshakeable in the presence of the LORD. Seek Him always in prayers, praises and thanksgiving. Continue to declare His WORD for His help and divine intervention. For the LORD has sent His promises to build up His Daughters and Sons of Zion; He has appeared in His glory. He has regarded and listened to the prayers of the destitute and has not despised or rejected their prayers.

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”
— Matthew 7:13-20 (ESV)

 

For where the Word of the Lord is there is power, His command is backed by great power. No one can resist or question it. The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and calls the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.The Lord of hosts has sworn, an oath, saying, “Just as I have intended, so it has certainly happened, and just as I have planned, so it will stand."

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me to bring GOOD NEWS to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up, the wounds of the brokenhearted, To proclaim release from confinement and condemnation to the physical and spiritual captives and freedom to prisoners, To proclaim that 2017 is the favorable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, To comfort all who mourn, To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: To give them a turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], The oil of joy instead of mourning, The garment expressive of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

Beloved... Decree and declare: "This day in which God has saved me is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. O Lord, save now, we beseech You; O Lord, we beseech You, send now prosperity and give us success! I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. I have set the LORD continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely. I saw the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. For He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who judge his soul. The LORD is my keeper; The LORD is my shade on my right hand. For I will never be shaken; The righteous will be remembered forever. For the LORD takes delight and pleasure in His people; He crowns the humble with victory. He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

Lord, I hear you, I seek you and I serve you, therefore, I will end my days in prosperity and my years in pleasures. You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is the fullness of joy; In Your right hand, there are pleasures forever. My Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever. The Lord has not forsaken me as I am the work of His hand. He has protected, established, blessed, redeemed, prospered, delivered, healed, and saved me; as well as all concerns, my children, my household, my family, our finances, health, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, the work of our hands, our future, purpose and destiny. He has bestowed upon us - miracles of healing, superabundant blessings, supernatural breakthroughs, miraculous deliverance, overwhelming victory and Salvation. I shout for joy and rejoice, for You have divinely favored my vindication; and I say continually, 'The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity, peace, protection and provision of His servant.'

Sustain us according to Your Word, that we may live; and do not let us be ashamed of our hope. The Creator of the Universe, He is more than able... For there is nothing He cannot do. He cannot fail. He cannot lie. He cannot die. The LORD, He is the Great and Mighty God, so I confidently put my trust in Him. I am expectant that this week, I shall taste and see the goodness of the LORD and testify that LORD is GOOD!

O LORD, let Your ear now be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You now, day and night, on behalf of Your children and Your servants, and the followers of Nikimac community, confessing and repenting of our sins, seeking your mercy, grace, uncommon favor, unusual blessings, and the manifestation of Your Great Glory in our lives. Indeed, it shall be well, in Jesus name, I pray, praise and proclaim these prophetic utterances. AMEN!!"

God has Ordered your Restoration!

September Week 4 Day 26 UPowerUp!
God has Ordered your Restoration!

22007706_1592120900847889_8013204661358033201_n.jpg

 

Beloved... At the beginning of this month, September 2017, God reassured us of the fulfilment of His WORD for answered prayers, the birth of promises, abundant harvest from seeds planted in His Kingdom.

"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it." (

Abba, Father, I hold you accountable to Your Word, as Your name is on the line. Today, let us remind God of our expectations of His performance that are in alignment with His Will, Word and Ways. God is not a man, so He does not lie. He is not human, so He does not change his mind. Has He ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through? There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed. For the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever. Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments.

You may ask, what if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? If we are faithless, He remains faithful— for He cannot deny Himself. God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking, and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will [instead] give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will [instead] give him a snake? If you then, evil (sinful by nature) as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give what is good and advantageous to those who keep on asking Him. So then, in everything treat others the same way you want them to treat you, for this is [the essence of] the Law and the [writings of the] Prophets.
— Matthew 7:7-12 (AMP)

 

O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness. The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; My father's God, and I will extol Him. Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count. I will sing of the loving kindness of the LORD forever; To all generations, I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth. O sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. You are my God, and I give thanks to You; You are my God, I extol You.

LORD, I praise You for Your faithfulness. I am excited about the blessings, miracles, breakthroughs, deliverance, financial success and all that You have done, is doing and going to do for me, my children, my household, my family, the followers of the Nikimac community, our finances, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, the work of our hands, our future and destiny. Behold, it is written before God, He will not keep silent, but He will repay; He will even repay into our bosoms. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. God will pour into our laps a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over, with no space left for more.

God will repay, release, and restore everything that the enemy has stolen, destroyed, hindered, held up and held back, in Jesus name. In the name of Jesus, I return, reject and refuse everything that the enemy has given me, that is not mine... Sickness, diseases, mental illness, discouragement, depression, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, addiction, oppression, suppression, opposition, affliction, abuse, lack, poverty, mediocrity, debts, demotion, disobedience, barrenness, joblessness, loneliness, homelessness, slothfulness, rejection, neglect, abandonment, intimidation, fear, bitterness, unforgiveness, unkindness, destruction, spiritual death, and sorts of sin.... These are NOT mine! I reject them! I refuse them! I return them to the enemy right now, in Jesus name!

I demand a seven-fold payback for everything that belongs to me, that Satan, the thief, the enemy has stolen from me and refused to give back to me; so I take him to the High Court of the Lord, in Jesus name. The Almighty GOD, Abba Father, He is the Judge and Jesus, the LORD, my Redeemer, He is my Attorney. They have ruled in my favour with an overwhelming victory, issued a new order of Restoration and expired the old order. The King of Heaven reigns and He issued the verdict:

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; and My people shall never be put to shame." -- Joel 2:25-26

"For I will forgive their iniquities, and remember their sins no more. In speaking of a new covenant, He has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and ageing will soon disappear." -- Hebrews 8:13-14

May the Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you! -- Deuteronomy 1:11 (NKJV)

Thus says the Lord God: “Remove the turban, and take off the crown; Nothing shall remain the same. Exalt the humble, and humble the exalted. Overthrown, overthrown, I will make it overthrown! It shall be no longer until He comes whose right it is, And I will give it to Him.”’ -- Ezekiel 21:26-27 (NKJV)

And men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who judges on earth!" -- Psalm 58:11

Glooooory!!! GLORY TO GOD!!!!

I asked the LORD, "Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?" And the LORD told me, "Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you. So I pursued and recovered all plus the spoils and plundered. Every covenant promise, blessing and inheritance as a Child of God and a Servant of the Lord are released to me. I will not and cannot be denied of what is rightfully mine. I shall not accept substitutes. Every resource to fulfill God's purposes and plans for my life must come to me without delay. My God has located and positioned me in wealthy places. In the name of Jesus, I command that all my blessings - miracles, freedom, peace, joy, love, prosperity, healing, health, long life, goals, billion-dollar ideas, creativity, innovative solutions for life/social/economic/political/national crisis, cures for health crisis, God-given purpose, divine destiny, multiplication and abundant harvest, promotions, excellent jobs/careers/businesses, fruitfulness, multiple sources of income, revenue streams, wisdom, intellectual capability, capacity, potential, financial successes, victories, breakthroughs, callings, ministries, household salvation, beautiful family, obedient children, academic excellence, faithful and loving spouse, excellence, influence, affluence, honour, favour, grace, truth, well-wishes, fruitfulness, greatness, goodness, righteousness, virtue, worship, kindness, patience, thankfulness, gratitude, praise, joy, gladness, happiness... to locate me. These blessings are mine, they belong to me and are being restored to me, right now, in Jesus name. Hallelujah!!!

Thank you, LORD!! Your righteousness O God reaches the high heavens. You who have done great things, O God, who is like you? You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth You will bring me up again. You will increase my greatness and comfort me again. I will also praise You with the harp for Your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to You with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; my soul also, which You have redeemed. And my tongue will talk of Your righteous help all the day long, for they have been put to shame and disappointed who sought to do me hurt. 

And so shall it be, as it is spoken and written this day, in Jesus mighty name!

In Jesus name, we pray, praise and proclaim these prophetic utterances, AMEN!!!

Analyze, Anoint and Advance me, O Lord!

September Week 4 Day 25 UPowerUp!
Analyze, Anoint and Advance me, O Lord!

restore.jpg

 

Beloved... We need to be confident in the knowledge of who we are, to whom we belong, what God says and thinks about us. We are Children of the Light, and therefore we believe, receive and activate the Truth of God's Word about us; and we reject and rebuke all sources from the Father of Lies.

So how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye,’ when there is a log in your own eye? You hypocrite (play-actor, pretender), first get the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Do not give that which is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, for they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
— Matthew 7:4-6 (AMP)

 

Many of God's children suffer unjustly in stress and guilt because of seeking people's validation. We become weary and heavily burdened by religious rituals that provide no peace, unfair judgement, rejection, intimidation, low-self worth and loneliness. We feel broken, used or abused by how people treated us in exchange for our kindness and love. David said, "They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without cause. In return for my love, they act as my accusers, But I am in prayer. Thus they have repaid me evil for good and hatred for my love." Like David, we are left hurt, disappointed, worried and anxious about what people said or did, what they are saying or doing and what they will say or do. But who are these people? Do you mean the same individuals in the similar messed-up situations as we are? Persons in the struggle with the same sins, sorrows, and shame; with the skeletons hidden in their owned closets? So we choose to forgive those who hurt and unfairly judge us and we move forward, knowing that we are in this together seeking the grace, mercy, and compassion of God.

Here is some Good News to share on Twitter on this matter:

  • Faith says, God takes us and our brokenness; His Grace transforms us and restores our situations to something supernaturally amazing for His Glory
  • God's love and grace liberate us, set us free. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!
  • God has already delivered us from darkness into LIGHT. This light is God's Goodness, Greatness, Grace, Gift, Gladness, Glory and Gospel, that are bestowed upon us to transform our lives. 
  • God has already predestined, called, qualified, justified and glorified us.

GOD DOES NOT CALL THE QUALIFIED. HE QUALIFIES THOSE HE CALLS! And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified, declared free of the guilt of sin; and those whom He justified, He also glorified, raising them to a heavenly dignity. What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be successful against us? He who did not spare even His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?

Let's give thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

The knowledge, information and revelation God's Word is the only source of TRUTH and must be held above every fact of this world, what others have done, thought or said about us. God's Word must be the compass of our lives and our living in God's Kingdom. We must bring our lives, actions, dreams, speech and thoughts in alignment, synchronized and syncopated with God's Word for the manifestation in our lives at the appointed time. 

The Word of God is alive, quick, and active and full of power, making it operative, energising, and efficient. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit, the completeness of a person, and of both joints and marrow, the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God, not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but everything is uncovered, all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account. It is God who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. The Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He watches all his paths.

O Lord, you have searched me thoroughly and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up, my entire life, everything I do; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and You are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, still unspoken, Behold, O Lord, You know it all.

You have enclosed me behind and before, And [You have] placed Your hand upon me. Such [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high [above me], I cannot reach it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will take hold of me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me, And the night will be the only light around me,” Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You, But the night shines as bright as the day; Darkness and light are alike to You.

For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was being formed in secret, and intricately and skillfully formed as if embroidered with many colors in the depths of the earth. Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were appointed for me, when as yet there was not one of them even taking shape. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You...

O that You would kill the wicked, O God; Go away from me, therefore, men of bloodshed. For they speak against You wickedly, Your enemies take Your name in vain. Do I not hate those who hate You, O Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? I hate them with perfect and utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.

Search me thoroughly, O God, and know my heart; Test me and know my anxious thoughts, and see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.

O Almighty God, I praise and exalt you in the midst of my affliction. O LORD, I magnify Your name above and beyond, O Great are You! O LORD, You alone are God. I thank You, LORD, for your grace and faithful love towards me. Heavenly Father analyse, anoint and appoint me with authority for unlimited advancement and supernatural abundance! O Sovereign God, empower, equip and elevate me to possess my possession; take territorial rights and reap the milk and honey from the promised land. O Abba, improve, ignite, influence and increase me; financially, spiritually, physically, nutritionally, intellectually, emotionally, mentally, socially, relationally, corporately, globally, and generationally. O GOD, give me something to fight the enemy with and silently amaze all my accusers. In the name of Jesus, I break every negative utterance, sabotage, every curse of rejection, intimidation, abandonment and people-pleasing spirit over my life. O Lord, cover me and all my concerns with the Blood of Jesus, against all Spirits of death, darkness and destruction, in Jesus name.

I decree and declare that I am moving forward into a spotless future! I break free from all limiting situations, unforgiveness, bitterness, borders, barrenness and bondages. God has set me free and He has released me to unlimited boundaryless advancement. The old orders are expired! Old seasons and cycles of failure and frustration are over! Every anniversary demons are defeated and destroyed, in Jesus name. I am moving into a new realm of abundance with authenticity and authority. My name is associated with integrity, excellence, intellect, wisdom, worship, wealth, influence, affluence, emotional intelligence, and magnificence as a Child of God and a Servant of the Lord. I declare that I shall grow in stature of Jesus, having favour with God and man. I declare that I am beautiful, bold, creative, gifted and talented; a masterpiece! God will send destiny partners, mentors, tutors and governors to invest in me and to hold me accountable and raise the bar on my performance. I am being located and Son-positioned in a place to receive my God-given inheritance as a Child of God. I am being tutored and governed to mature and maximize my potential, giftedness, capacity and capability and thereby fulfill my God-given purpose and achieve my destiny as well as develop my Christ-like Character (moral, ethical and accountability). I am being changed to transform life, leaders and business; providing innovative solutions globally and generationally; in Jesus mighty name.

Today, I call upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless and restore me, my children, my household, my family and enlarge our borders, and that Your hand might be with us, and that You would keep us from harm so that it might not bring us pain! And God granted what I asked!"

In Jesus name, I pray, praise, and proclaim these prophetic utterances. AMEN!!

God Convicts, Corrects  and Crowns 

September Week 4 Day 24 UPowerUp!

God Convicts, Corrects  and Crowns
 

10411914_913684378659957_4929325206295189085_n.jpg

Beloved... What a mighty God we serve! This I recall to my mind. Therefore I have hope because of the LORD's great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. The faithful, steadfast and unconditional love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease.

Do not judge and criticize and condemn [others unfairly with an attitude of self-righteous superiority as though assuming the office of a judge], so that you will not be judged [unfairly]. For just as you [hypocritically] judge others [when you are sinful and unrepentant], so will you be judged; and in accordance with your standard of measure [used to pass out judgment], judgment will be measured to you. Why do you look at the [insignificant] speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice and acknowledge the [egregious] log that is in your own eye?
— Matthew 7:1-3 (AMP)



Heavenly Father, this WORD calls for self-examination and repentance for judging others, as well as the reassurance of God's grace when we are unfairly judged by others. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world. God does not condemn, He convicts, chastises and corrects us. Abba, our loving Father, corrects, reproves and disciplines everyone He loves. So being diligent and zealous; I turn from our indifference, and I repent.

For God, being compassionate, forgave our iniquity and did not destroy us; and often He restrained His anger and did not arouse all His wrath... And in His wrath, O Lord, we pray that He remembers mercy and loving kindness towards us. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. He will not look at us in anger. Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is there to condemn us? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God—and He is interceding for us.…

So do not judge me because You don't know the battles or assignments that God has asked me to take, to demonstrate His love towards us, His children. You don't know the scene, I am in that script nor do you have the full knowledge of the plot... God holds the pen of my story for His Glory. I have learnt that if you judge, God's servants at the early/premature stages of their life journey, you will misunderstand their God story...

What if you were to judge:

  • Joseph at various stages in his life, in the pit or in prison
  •  Daniel in the den; 3 Hebrew boys thrown the fiery furnace
  •  Moses tending the sheep for His father-in-law;
  • Noami, when she said call me Mara! "Don't call me Naomi," she told them. "Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter." (Ruth 1:20)
  • Job during his calamity, trials and tribulations, when even his wife and friends condemned and judged him. Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die.” (Job 2:9)
  • Hannah, who cried out for God's help for deliverance from barrenness while her rival Peninnah tormented her, as she triumphs in her fruitfulness
  • David, who was overlooked by his family, was anointed as King, running for his life from Saul and hiding in the caves. During his ordeal, David wrote nearly the entire book of Psalms. David, proclaimed, "His glory is great because of Your victory; Splendor and majesty You bestow upon him. For You make him most blessed [and a blessing] forever; You make him joyful with the joy of Your presence. For the king [confidently] trusts in the Lord, and through the lovingkindness (faithfulness, goodness) of the Most High he will never be shaken." (Psalm 21:5-7)

If you unfairly judged these Servants of the Lord, you would have misunderstood their God's assignments, missed the dazzling display of God's grace, love and faithfulness, and their breakthroughs that bought God, Olympic Glory.... And gives great hope to us today! 

Not to mention, the great lesson from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was judged and crucified on the cross; But in 3 days resurrected, glorified and victorious over life and death with the evidence of the empty tomb. Luke 23:39-43 tells us... One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!" But the other criminal rebuked him. "Don't you fear God," he said, "since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong." Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."  So which thief represents us and our attitude for unfairly judging others, without knowledge of their calling or God-ordained assignment?

I decree and declare that in the year 2017, me and my children are candidates of the LORD's mercy and His lovingkindness; that in the day of judgement and wickedness, we are not consumed, for His steadfast love never failed us and His faithfulness is always great towards us.

For God, He has favoured me! He will protect, defend and defeat all weapons formed against me and I condemn all tongues that rise up against me in judgement... "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. (Isaiah 54:1)

For God, He is gracious towards me and all my concerns! He is the God who can turn any situation around. "Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You." (Jeremiah 32:1

O LORD God, my life, my time, my season, and my situations are in You Righteous Right Hand. You can use anything Lord, use me! So it doesn't matter what others think of or say about me. It's imperative that I know how much You love me, whom I belong, and who You are. For there is nothing too hard for You! You are limitless in power, might and ability. There is nothing You cannot do and no situation that You cannot turn around. O Lord, by the Blood of Jesus, overturn and expire evil curses of judgement, false accusations, barrenness, rejections, failures, and opposition against me. Situations that look impossible to us are nothing before You, O Lord. There is no sickness too gross, no sin too great and no problem too overwhelming that my God cannot overcome. He IS The Almighty God, All-Powerful, Sovereign God, All-Knowing, All-Loving, Faithful Father! My God who will take the very worst things that happened in my life by working all things together for the very best outcomes for good and for His Glory. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. The Sovereign Lord is my strength, He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights. Greater is He who is in me than He who is in the world. Jesus has given me and left me His Peace. The world didn't give it to me, and the world can't take my peace from me. I will not let my heart be troubled, and I shall not be afraid.

In the name of Jesus, I commit my life, my children, my household, family, finances, future, careers/businesses, callings/ministries, work of our hands, and our destiny to God. For I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that He is able to keep, guard, protect, perfect, prosper, perform, and establish that which I have committed unto Him against that day. My God will cover me, cleanse me, correct me, and crown me with the redemptive and victorious Blood of Jesus. He shall supply me until full and overflow with His glorious riches in Heaven for superabundant blessings, financial breakthroughs, miracles of healings, and supernatural deliverance. In Jesus mighty name, I pray. Amen!!

It's a Faith Move!

It's a Faith Move!

21687602_1589417534451559_3532253848884052813_n.jpg

 

Beloved... The next move you make is a faith move... You will move forward by faith not sight. God has already gone ahead of you to make the darkness light, rough pathways smooth, crumbling walls of the hindrance, parting the Red Sea, and breaking every rock and mountain blocking you. You're unstoppable! You shall cross over. It's time for an upgrade! Time to climb higher... Surely there is an end and the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off. It shall be well with you! This is the season of your colossal breakthrough! The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.…

Servants, in everything, obey those who are your masters on earth, not only with external service, as those who merely please people, but with sincerity of heart because of your fear of the Lord. Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve. For he who does wrong will be punished for his wrongdoing, and [with God] there is no partiality [no special treatment based on a person’s position in life].
— Colossians 3:22-25 (AMP)

 

Heavenly Father, my God, my Father Abba, I thank you and exalt you. Lord, let Your will be done. Lord, let your Kingdom come on earth as in Heaven. I choose to obey You and Your commandments in my service whether to my children, household, family, ministry, calling, career and business to work from my heart unto the Lord and always give my best effort. I seek the fulfilment of Your covenant promises in rewarding me as a Servant of the Lord. I believe that my God will equip, empower and elevate me; against all odds, doubts, my natural limitations, weaknesses, inadequacies, and personal failures; in Jesus name. 

Lord, please give me a mind-blowing miracle in my area of need. I decree and declare that there is a colossal breakthrough in my family, job situation, career, business, clients, contracts, finances, work relationships, sources of income, revenue streams, and the work of my hands. I am full of expectation of blessings from the open floodgates of heaven.  Colossal is defined as huge, massive, enormous, gigantic, giant, mammoth, vast, immense, monumental, prodigious, mountainous, titanic, towering. I claim glorious and colossal breakthroughs that shall manifest in my life; financially, intellectually, socially, relationally, spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Breakthrough upon breakthroughs is on the way to transform my life, my children lives, and my family forever. Sucess will manifest in my life, for my God shall show me an uncommon favour and unusual blessings shall be bestowed upon me and all concerning me. I shall receive favour from God, man and woman in every pending decision, in every circumstance and situation of my life. 

This next move is a faith move! God has positioned me for a colossal breakthrough, promotion, and victory. Things are about to change in my favour. My head is anointed with fresh oil. My cup shall overflow with greatness, goodness and gladness. Every negative utterance, the curse of failure, rejection, joblessness, loneliness, and lack are broken, in Jesus name. God has issued a new old to expire the old order. Thus says the Lord GOD: "Remove the turban and take off the crown. Things shall not remain as they are. Exalt that which is low, and bring low that which is exalted." (Ezekiel 21:26 -ESV)

As from this day, goodness, mercy, grace, loving-kindness, honour and favour shall follow me all the days of my life. From this day forward, God will supernaturally bless me for unlimited advancement. I shall live the rest of my life in divine pleasure, peace, protection and prosperity. I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever to bring God glory and never shame, in Jesus name. Amen!!
